tgm4883anonymousman, with the device plugged in, can you pastebin the output of 'lsusb'?01:36

icedwateranonymousman: on IRC, uppercase is usually reserved for the beginning of sentences, acronyms or shouting.01:42
wilee-nileeanonymousman, Is there a receipt for the dongle on the verizon website naming the device?01:42
rolla91Runemoro: under additional drivers it saus "no proprietary drivers are in use" but when I am in this screen the lines dissapeer.01:43
icedwaterAlso, many clients have highlighting, so if you start a sentence with a name, that person will see your message in a different colour.01:43
wilee-nileeclicker4721, Run the bootinfo summary first and post the url if you like so we can take a look.01:43
icedwateranonymousman: like so.01:43
anonymousmanIcedwater my model is usb551L01:43
icedwaterAnd it is not unusual to see your own comments in a different colour as well.01:43

rolla9112.10, now the lines are gone however the display is unstable, blinking and such.01:44
anonymousmando u wanna knw all the info on my my broad band?01:44
icedwaterYep, that seems to be it.01:44
hoyangnvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.01:45
icedwateranonymousman: if it might be more than a few lines long, consider using http://paste.ubuntu.com/ :)01:45
anonymousmando u need the firmware version01:45
icedwaterThat could help.01:45
icedwaterBut anonymousman we will only be able to see the problem if you're on Ubuntu.01:45
hoyangubuntu support nvidia card now.01:45
icedwaterDo you remember what messages you get if the connection fails?01:46
icedwaterNot if, but when.01:46
rolla91Runemoro: 12.10 however the lines have dissapeered but the display seems unstable, blinking and such01:46
clicker4721wilee-nilee: Will do.01:46
Runemororolla91: The title of the window should be "Software & Sources". The tabs should be "Ubuntu Software", "Other Software", "Updates", "Authentification", "Additionnal Drivers"01:47
GammaX-2how can I find out which kernel im on?01:48
rolla91Runemoro: yes, that is where I am, I see nothing about nvidia in any tab01:48
icedwater...welp, he's off. I hope it's to track down error messages tgm4883.01:49
anonymousmanSorry @icedwater i got dissconnected01:49
icedwaterAh, there you are :)01:49
rolla91Runemoro: in the software sources/ additional drivers tab there is no information01:49
icedwaterStill on Windows?01:49
icedwaterSince you have Ubuntu on a USB stick, maybe you could use that to start another computer.01:50
icedwaterAnd see if the dongle has issues there.01:50
sparkssGammaX-2 : uname -a01:50
anonymousmanOK hang on01:50
GammaX-2sparkss,  gracias01:50
GammaX-2is a parport considered a serial device?01:51
anonymousmani will only have internet to one,but thats what ill do01:51
wilee-nileeanonymousman, I see a bug report and a fix in the kernel released, are you updated in ubuntu.01:51
icedwaterHmm, right01:51
icedwaterOh dear.01:51
icedwaterMaybe you should write down stuff, on paper or in a text file, then put it on paste.01:52
anonymousmanI only have the one broadband connection01:52
icedwateranonymousman: before you go01:52
icedwaterRemember to check lsusb and usb-devices.01:52
Runemororolla91: Ctrl-Alt-T and type: sudo nvidia-xconfig01:52
anonymousmanI was thinking of doing that as well, getting the stuff i need and putting in on word pad and printing it01:52
icedwaterThey do kind of the same thing, but lsusb is more concise.01:52
icedwaterYeah, I seldom print stuff :P But that's me. I'm a tree-hugging type, or I try to be.01:53
anonymousmanis that on ubuntu?01:53
GammaX-2I have a multi I/o Card and need to see if its possibly picking up the parrallel port and not just the serial ports... can someone advise?01:53
icedwaterYes, anonymousman, those two commands will need to be entered in the terminal though.01:53
GammaX-2please? :D01:53
icedwateranonymousman: you may have to press Ctrl-Alt-T to pull up a terminal.01:53
anonymousmanok and the termal u pull up by xtrl alt t right01:53
icedwater(once you go black, you never go back.)01:54
anonymousmanOk i did have that right01:54
rolla91Runemoro: Tried, says command not found01:54
icedwaterThe terminal is pretty useful :)01:54
anonymousmanso what will i type once there so i can paste it iv got my notebook open01:54
jab416171my laptop locks up all the time. I have no idea why, and I'd really like to get to the bottom of it.01:54
jab416171I ran a test to see if it was overheating (a couple for loops, watching the temps) and it got up to 80C, but it kept running just fine. Here's the logs from right before it crashed one time: https://gist.github.com/jab416171/5409690 (which is probably useless because the logs from the last time it happened are completely different)01:54
icedwateranonymousman: in the terminal, either lsusb or usb-devices01:55
anonymousmanhey jab have u tried cleanin your registry01:56
Runemororolla91: Type: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current01:56
wilee-nileejab416171, You mentioned swapping before, the computer can become unresponsive when swapping, could this be the case?01:56
anonymousmanIcedwater> ok i got that01:56
icedwaterWhat do you see?01:57
jab416171wilee-nilee: my swappiness is "1", and I have 4 GB of RAM. I haven't checked to see if I'm using up my memory, I'll do that now.01:57
anonymousmanicedwater> what is the reason it wont let me connect? when i installed it over windows one time it allowed me01:57
rolla91Runemoro: ran, says unable to locate package nvidia current01:57
icedwaterYes, Windows hides a lot of stuff from you, so you see very minimal feedback when things install.01:58
icedwaterIt looks like magic, but with Linux more often you see more.01:58
icedwaterThe trick is not to run away. :P01:59

icedwaterdcope: you're going to have to define 'everything'.02:00
dcopeubuntu.com says it only works completely if it's preinstalled but lenovo doesn't even offer that.02:00
dcopeicedwater: every single hardware feature02:00
icedwaterYes, I know it is unambiguous... are you asking for advice first or leading us up to a problem?02:01
icedwaterThat's more of what I meant.02:01
dcopeicedwater: i'm asking before i buy.02:01
dcopei don't want to drop almost 3 grand on a laptop if hardly anything works.02:01
icedwaterdcope: Good thinking.02:01
icedwaterBut don't you have the option to buy it with Windows first?02:01
dcopeYeah, that's the only option that lenovo seems to offer contrary to Ubuntu's website.02:02
icedwaterThen load up an Ubuntu live CD or USB, try Ubuntu as much as you like02:02
dcopeIf everything works, Ill buy this. Otherwise Ill buy the dell sputnik02:02
icedwaterThen install it if/when you're comfortable.02:02
dr_willis_sort of hard to justify 3 grand on a laptop these days02:02
dcopeicedwater: i have 0 intentions on using windows02:02
icedwaterdcope: generally I find laptop and operating system should be separated from one another.02:02
icedwater(given that you can install Mac OS X on most laptops now. :P)02:03
jab416171wilee-nilee: it's really hard to make it lock up02:03
jab416171it just happens seemingly randomly02:03
dcopeicedwater: and the hackintosh will work worse than my current system MBA02:03
dcopeis there a list somewhere of OEMs that offer Ubuntu?02:03
wilee-nileejab416171, That is about the level of my input a hypotheisi. ;)02:03
icedwaterdcope: I'm not sure it was meant to be anything other than thumbing the metaphorical nose at Apple.02:04

icedwaterAh right. Thanks.02:05
anonymousmanI think i got it figured out by using my virtual box...i'll talk to every one later thnx for helo icedwater02:06
dr_willis_dcope:  a quick google search showed dell,, and system76 and a few year+ old sites that listed other makers02:06
dcopedr_willis_: there's this (http://webapps.ubuntu.com/partners/oem/) but no links to actual models02:06
rolla91Runemoro: ran that, then it allowed me to get apt nvidia-current, still unstable, blinking and lines02:07
wilee-nileedcope, I believe the manufacturers have there own tweaked versions.02:08
dr_willis_i imagine the companies change stuff so fast its hard to keep updated02:08
dcopedamn, all i want is an ubuntu machine that works. im so fed up with my macbook air. :(02:08
dr_willis_dell i think had a slightly tweaked ubuntu for their stuff..02:08
jab416171wilee-nilee: forcing it to swap is fine02:08
icedwaterAll right, I'm heading off for some work-related stuff.02:09
icedwaterBe back soon.02:09
dr_willis_ive rarely had issues with  any laptops ive had on ubuntu.. see what system76 sells.. i thought  many of their machines are identicall/renamed/rebranded stuff from otehr makers02:09
Runemororolla91: Type sudo nvidia-xconfig02:09
dcopedr_willis_: thanks, ill check them out02:09
Runemororolla91: After you do that, reboot02:11
rolla91Runemoro: says unable to locate/open xconfiguration file. new xconfiguration file written to '/etc/x11/xorg.conf'02:11
Runemororolla91: Ok, now reboot. Lines should be gone02:12
dr_willis_i alwauys get laptops that come witn windows.. and swap out the HD ;) i put a ssd in for ubuntu these days. and keep the windows hd safe and untouched.. that way when i eventually sell/give away the laptop to my  brother.. he can have windows back .02:12
oioall procceses in ubuntu 64 bits are 64 bits ?02:13
RunemoroOerHeks: Yay! I used boot-repair and it fixed it :D02:13
dr_willis_it would be nice if they would include boot-repair on the live cd by default.02:14
rolla91Runemoro: you are awesome, no more lines! one more question, the factory hp wireless adapter is not being recognized, is there an easy way to get it working?02:14
=== pie is now known as Guest95
Runemororolla91: Ctrl-Alt-T: sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree02:16

dr_willis_i dident even know how to explain the term to her..... ;P02:21
peaceblasterAnyone know a good guide on "dialog" for bash scripting?02:22
dr_willis_dialog gives the old fashoned 'ncurses' type input dialog boxs' for user input.02:22
dr_willis_used by the package manager systgem and a few other scripts02:22
peaceblasteryeah, that02:23
Stanley00peaceblaster: I think just "dialog --help" is enough02:23
peaceblasterok, I mean I can get the interface up no problem I'm just confused about how its output works02:23
dr_willis_#1 question about the dialog stuff in here.. tends to be 'how do i click the ok button, when installing the ms fonts package'  ;) answer.. hit tab. then enter02:23
rolla91Runemoro: still doesn't detect wireless, computer has a physical switch for wireless on/off and now the switch does work to turn it on/off but it still doesn't detect any networks02:23

icedwaterdcope: is your macbook air an intel system?02:27
rolla91anyone else have any idea on how to make my wireless card work with 12.10?02:28
rolla91it appears to be a broadcomm card02:28
dr_willis_rolla91:  does the addational-drivers tool show any suggested drivers for it?02:28
icedwaterrolla91: are you dualbooting?02:28
rolla91dr_willis_ : no it doesnt02:28
dr_willis_rolla91:  also i lerned the hard way once..boot to wndows.. use the switch to make sure the caard is ON.. and never touch that switch under linux. ;)02:29
rolla91icedwater: no i am not02:29
icedwaterAh, OK.02:29
icedwaterdr_willis_: yes, was going to point that out.02:29
ubottuHelp with Broadcom bcm43xx can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx02:29
icedwaterI was -very- puzzled because of the Vaio's windows switch.02:29
icedwaterBut the error message was different from what rolla91 is getting so.02:29
icedwaterrolla91: what is your wireless interface called?02:30
icedwaterOn ifconfig02:30
dr_willis_rolla91:  see if lspci shows the card also..   it might be sort of on./off ;) again.. i would boot to windows and make sure its on there..02:30
dr_willis_ive seen people spend an hr+ fighting with wifi cards.. only to discover the switch dosent work properly in linux.02:31
|nv|s|b|ejust make sure its on when you boot linux02:31
rolla91shows broadcom bcm431202:31
icedwaterdr_willis_: yes, but rolla91 did say he is not dual-booting.02:31
FirstmateHiyo, I'm having a strange issue. It seems that applications do not want to accept mouse clicking input.02:32
dr_willis_i had a similer issue once with a sound card..   a power on straight to linux worked.. a reboot from windows -> hardware dident work in linux.02:32
rolla91i am going to go through the guide ubottu left and try that02:32
FirstmateI can move my mouse around, but click (left/right) do not work.02:32
Firstmateclicking does*02:32
icedwaterFirstmate: that is indeed odd.02:32
FirstmateI can, oddly enough, use the top menubar (file, edit...etc)02:33
icedwaterAlso, if anonymousman ever comes back...02:33
dr_willis_Firstmate:  so the buttons are working.. in some apps...02:33
dr_willis_or some locations02:33
FirstmateIn no app.02:33
dr_willis_Firstmate:  see if it works properly in the guest session, or in other window managers would be a good test. this is a very weird bug.02:34
FirstmateOnly in Ubuntu related menus (like the launcher thingy, or the top navigational bar, or the unity launcher)02:34
FirstmateHow would I test the window manager part of your request?02:34
dr_willis_Firstmate:  you are running s normal unity setup? or have you customized anything?02:34
FirstmateIt's pretty much fresh02:34
dr_willis_Firstmate:  sudo apt-get install openbox , and select optnbox at the login screen to see if it works in  openbox.02:34
FirstmateI've installed some dev things (CS student in uni) like python, ruby..etc02:35
jeremiahAnyone know how i can get lightdm working again?02:35
dr_willis_also guest session in the login screen - may  shed some light on the issue02:35
FirstmateOk dr_willis_, I'm on the ubuntu system right now02:35
dr_willis_jeremiah:  sort of depends on how its broken.02:35
FirstmateSo I'll have to get off to try it.02:35
icedwaterFirstmate: not really.02:35
jeremiahWell, if i try to use it, i get the low graphics error02:35
dr_willis_Firstmate:  you can use a console based IRC client in the consoles to stay here as you log out/restart X and so forth02:35
icedwaterYou would need to try it on the Ubuntu system anyway...02:36
FirstmateWell I understand that, but I don't have a console irc cient setup atm.02:36
rolla91I followed the instructions in the link, still no wireless card connection02:36
icedwaterdr_willis_: yep, I like irssi for that. Also, Ctrl-Alt-F1 to F6 (for most cases) should open more consoles you can use.02:36
Firstmatesudo apt-get install irssi fine?02:36
icedwaterJust log in normally, Firstmate, then you can apt-get install irssi and set it up :)02:37
jeremiahDr_willis,  If i try to use it, i get the low graphics session screen.02:37
jeremiahI have an AMD ATI Radeon x2300 graphics card02:38
GammaXMy multi IO card only shows up as using the 2 serial ports and not the parallel port... can anyone help please?02:38
qiyongwhat's the default filesystem?02:38
GammaXubuntu on mine02:38
icedwaterjeremiah: not too sure about that.02:38
icedwaterqiyong: these days it's ext4 I think.02:39
jeremiahicedwater,  what do you mean?02:39
icedwaterjeremiah: I mean I'm not sure how to help you. I suppose your ATI isn't cooperating...02:39
icedwaterSome people seem to have suggested things like setting acpi, nomodeset, etc at boot time...02:39
RubyChellosis it easy to mine bitcoins on linux?02:40
icedwaterBut it might be different.02:40
qiyongicedwater: is ext4 stable enough?02:40
jeremiahicedwater,  No, and itnever has. in the graphics card driver setting, i have no options. So i run off of the default fglrx or whatever it is02:40
Firstmatedr_willis_: I can't scroll up, was is openbox?02:40
icedwaterFirstmate: yes, openbox is an alternate DM.02:40
icedwaterqiyong: I have had no problems so far.02:41
jeremiahicedwater,  though, this only happened not long ago. ubuntu has been running on it for a year now without issues...02:41
icedwaterjeremiah: just out of curiosity, do you remember vaguely when?02:41
jeremiahicedwater,  when it stopped working? two weeks ago. no one replied to my forum thread, so i came here02:42
icedwaterBecause then you might find more clues in /var/log/apt/02:42
icedwaterCould be something you upgraded that broke the driver...02:42
jeremiahthats what i am thinking02:42
icedwaterBut that would also be buried in a stack of other upgraded packages.02:43
jeremiahit happened right after an update, i had to restart it for that update02:43
icedwaterAt least you get some clues from history.log.02:43
icedwaterYou know what they say about those who don't learn from history...02:43
Firstmateicedwater: So terminals created with Cntrl-Alt-F1-6 stay active?02:43
icedwater...they're doomed to reboot it02:43
icedwaterFirstmate: yes, those are started by the system. I forget where you can specify how many you want.02:44
FirstmateIt's fine, just doing what dr_willis_ asked earlier.02:44
FirstmateNice to know this irssi stays open.02:44
icedwaterAh, OK.02:44
jiltdilcreate file name as /file . How to do that02:45
jeremiahicedwater,  i think i may have cleared my logs.. O_O02:45
icedwaterjiltdil: not sure about that. What are you trying to do there?02:45
icedwaterjeremiah: is there anything other than .log in that directory?02:46
jiltdilicedwater, noting just checking to make file name using special characters02:46
Firstmateicedwater: So I changed the window manager to openbox, logged in. but ubuntu threw an error. I can't see anything on the screen, so...I don't know how to get out02:46
jeremiahicedwater,  in where? I cleared my home log files02:46
FirstmateI'm gonna have to reboot.02:46
icedwaterjiltdil: Ah. OK, escapes with \ usually work.02:46
icedwaterFirstmate: hang on02:46
MicdiscHi everyone02:46
icedwaterjeremiah: in /var/log/apt/02:46
Micdiscfirst time here02:47
icedwaterThe system keeps those, you usually wouldn't have permission to delete them.02:47
jiltdilicedwater, like touch /\a     ?02:47
MicdiscI have a question about Kubuntu and Compiz if anyone can help02:47
jeremiahi do have that02:47
firstmateuhhh icedwater : How do you shut down via terminal?02:47
icedwaterjiltdil: Technically, yes.02:47
icedwaterBut I believe those \/ should be the other way round.02:48
jiltdilicedwater, not working .. it is making file in /02:48
icedwaterAnd will be interpreted first as paths.02:48
icedwaterSo permissions apply.02:48
icedwaterYep, it works for most other characters though. :P02:48
icedwaterfirstmate: sudo poweroff or reboot :)02:48
icedwaterfirstmate: wait02:48
firstmateGonna have to find out how to google in this terminal when I'm back :V02:48
icedwaterfirstmate: I didn't realise you were still here. :P02:48
firstmateI left, but didn't know how to shutdown...02:49
icedwaterI don't have a list of names on the side :P02:49
jeremiahicedwater,  yea, i have those files. but ubuntu updates like every two days, so i have no clue whatsoever...02:49
firstmateI'll be back later.02:49
icedwaterjeremiah: maybe go to as close as possible to where the problem began?02:49
jeremiahicedwater,  what do you mean?02:49
icedwaterfirstmate / Firstmate isn't one to wait :/02:49
icedwaterjeremiah: look around for the upgrade commands near about 2 weeks ago, since you say the problem started occurring then...02:50
jeremiahicedwater,  i found the exact date, i made a facebook update when it happened about it :P02:50
icedwaterAlso, will all the full-time Ubuntu support staff here raise their hands? :P02:50
jeremiahicedwater,  could that help?02:50
icedwaterjeremiah: it could. That would narrow down your search through the logs.02:51
icedwater(I was making a point. There are probably -no- full-time support staff here.)02:51
jeremiahicedwater,  but how do i tell what date the log was?02:51
icedwaterjeremiah: well, in /var/log/apt/history.log, each block of updates is preceded by the date when the command began.02:52
jeremiahicedwater,  ah02:52
icedwaterYou see "Start-Date: $date $time" at the top of each paragraph.02:53
jeremiahum, why do most of them start at x.x.2012???02:53
icedwaterLook for the Commandline: line.02:54
icedwaterIf they are apt-get --yes then it's probably automatic updates? I'm not sure about that though.02:54
icedwaterMy manual downloads all appeared without the --yes, so I'm guessing.02:54
jeremiahit was automatic02:54
icedwaterAlso, I'm heading off now, will be back shortly.02:55

histojda2000: there are .Desktop files in the /usr/share/... somewhere I believe03:36
histojda2000: for a reference03:37
histojda2000: why not install eclipse from the repos btw?03:37
jda2000histo, OK, thanks.03:37
joshuakadeI'm confused03:38
contrapunctusHey folks. Anyone know which file xchat uses to store info for favorite servers and channels?03:41
histojda2000: find /usr/share -name '*.desktop'03:41
histocontrapunctus: somewhere in ~ check for .xchat or in .config03:42
joshuakadeWhat does that mean wilee-nilee?03:42
jda2000histo,  When you install the Android Development Kit it has it's own version.03:42
wilee-nileecontrapunctus, It is in .config/xchat unhide home.03:42
contrapunctushisto: Already checked. But which file?03:42
=== chaos_ is now known as soahccc
wilee-nileejoshuakade, what does what mean?03:43
histocontrapunctus: don't have xchat installed can't help there. man xchat should yield some info on config possibly03:43
joshuakade"It is root check the properties for the data amount"03:43
histocontrapunctus: howbout grep -i 'server' ~/.config/xchat/*03:44
contrapunctushisto: Oh, wait. Got it. servlist_.conf. The entries after J= under the relevant server are the autojoin channels. Thanks :)03:44
joshuakadewilee-nilee"It is root check the properties for the data amount"03:44
wilee-nileejoshuakade, /var/log is in your root part of the OS. Right click log and it will tell you how much data is in there.03:44
dr_willis_ive seen many people in here over the last few months that get HUGE amount of log files  - sevral gb worth at times.03:45
wilee-nileeright click then clicl properties03:45
joshuakadewilee-nilee : Contains: 191 items, totalling 5.2 MB03:45
joshuakade(some contents unreadable)03:45
histodr_willis_: logrotate is your friend03:46
dr_willis_sudo du -hs /var/log    may also tell you how many mb is in there03:46
wilee-nileejoshuakade, Cool I was just following what I saw others check for in a similar situation.03:46
dr_willis_histo:  yea. excet i think some of these were the x error logs in the users home.03:46
histodr_willis_: oh yeah those don't get rotated03:47
histodr_willis_: they should get purged though if they don't have stuff owned by another user.03:47
joshuakadeWhat do I need to do in order to increase the amount of space Ubuntu can use?03:48
dr_willis_yea. makes me wonder if there shouldent be some sort of startup check to clean out older x org log error files.. or try to break them down into smaller chunks so older ones can get removed03:48
histojoshuakade: what kind of install?03:48
joshuakadeDuel install with Windows Vista03:48
dr_willis_joshuakade:  not a wubi install?03:48
dr_willis_did you boot a cd/usb to install? did you make partions for the system?03:49
jda2000histo, It looks like I have more of those .desktop files than I have apps......03:49
joshuakadeI used the installer from the Ubuntu website... histo03:49
histojoshuakade: if you used wubi i'm not sure I believe it's a file contained on your C drive. not a seperate partition03:49
histojoshuakade: you may have to search askubuntu not too many people here use wubi03:50
dr_willis_joshuakade:  pastebin the output of the 'mount' command..  a  of 'df -h' it will tell us some basic info03:50
histojoshuakade: and sudo fdisk -l  in your pastebin also03:50
dr_willis_the days of wubi - are numbered... ;)03:50

Stanley00kermit: try "dpkg -l program"04:08
zykotick9lnx-e: do you get a grub menu when you boot right now (to select other kernels)?  if not hold SHIFT while booting, and see if using an older kernel works (assuming you have one).04:08
bigbadbenPinkamena_D,  post I can try04:08

Stanley00Korbit: you are welcome ;)04:10
lnx-ei recovered grub  (boot-repair) and i tried advanced grub menu... i tried other options oother kernel options04:10
joshuakadehisto, how would one do something like that04:10
Pinkamena_Dthey all look to be in a fairly linear order, not including the extended. (but thats normal, right?)04:10
bigbadbenPinkamena_D, does it not let you boot or whats the issue?04:11
histojoshuakade: don't know I would search askubuntu i'm sure someone has asked on there04:12
Pinkamena_Dgparted wont let me do anything. All the partitions boot correctly. This is a problem because things aill not auto mount now, and I cant clone to my new drive04:12

bigbadbenPinkamena_D, when did you make these new partitions?04:15
Pinkamena_Dwell, It was stupidly a long time before I noticed anything was wrong.04:16
Pinkamena_DI am 90% sure the last change i made was changing the size of the swap04:16
Pinkamena_DIf you are asking literally when, I think 2-3 months ago04:17
bigbadbeneither way your sda2 and sda5 look like they are overlapping you might want to ask on a second opinion tho04:17
dr_willis_hmm. sda2 would be a primary partition. while sda5 would be a logical Inside an extended..04:18
dr_willis_is the swap partion sda2 or sda5?04:18

jordan__Would a LibreOffice Calc or Excel master plz message me if you're out there?04:19
Pinkamena_Dtbh I dont know04:19
rdilwhat is the super key, btw?04:19
Pinkamena_Dwell it cant be SDA204:20
Pinkamena_Dbecause that encompasses all of the other ones04:20
zykotick9rdil: windows key, poorly named really.04:20
rdilah, that did nothing. i tryed ctl esc too, ctl alt t works perfectly though :)04:20
contrapunctusrdil : If you're using XFCE, it easily lets you set shortcuts - mine's set to Alt+`04:21
Pinkamena_Dthe one clue I saw on gparted manual was this "At least 2 sectors of unallocated space are required in front of logical partitions. "04:21
histozykotick9: meta key or super key04:21
histozykotick9: super key04:22
Pinkamena_Dhow can you tell if the partition is logical? =P04:22
dr_willis_sda1 and sda2 look like they are overlapping by 10 blocks here.04:22
dr_willis_sda 1,2,3,4 would be primaries..  a logcal would be sda5+04:22
rdilthis was just a stock install.  i don't know if it was xfce or gnome though04:22
rdilbut reguardless, thanks guys.  i'm set now that i have a terminal :)04:23
dr_willis_and a extended  partition is holding the logicals04:23
dr_willis_sda2 may be the extended holding the logicals.04:23
Pinkamena_Dsda2 has a start value well above sda1's end value?04:23
Pinkamena_Dwhy is it overlapping?04:24
dr_willis_the end of sda1 seems to be overlapping the  beginning of sda1 from what im reading04:24
Pinkamena_Drdil, if you want a real terminal press ctrl+alt+F! =D04:24
dr_willis_sda2 and sda104:24

Pinkamena_Dwhy do you say that?04:30
Pinkamena_DI am trying to figure it out04:30
dr_willis_the #'s show the end of sda1 to be like 10 more then the start of sda204:30

rdilis there a way to get a total progress meter for cp?04:32
dr_willis_CFenix:  the addational drivers tool shoiuld be in a tab under software-soruces for 12.10. or just run  jockey-gtk for 12.0404:32
Idiothelppls help need to reset video settings, but can only type into a terminal04:32

IdiothelpNo, can't see anything. Used xsomthing to input a bad res and rebooted04:33

dr_willis_Idiothelp:  if its in your xorg.conf   use the text mode option to boot to text mode and rename the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file04:34
ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode04:34
IdiothelpAlso oddly, ctrlaltf1 doesn't work04:35
CFenixdr_willis_: i alredy installed the jockey-gtk, i don't see the drivers in "additional drivers", i'll try the line on terminal right now04:35
bigbadbenPinkamena_D, that compaq diagnostics might be causing the problem04:35
dr_willis_CFenix:  could be your card is so old. nvidia has dropped support for them04:35
Pinkamena_DI would not card if I have to get rid of it04:35
falcom_i setup ssh and byobu.. do i just have to make ubuntu boot up to console mode (no gui ) to complete its headless-ness?04:36
Pinkamena_Dwhere is the overlap?04:36
Liam-awayCFenix: what version of lubuntu?04:36
dr_willis_Pinkamena_D:  if you have made a 'recovery dvd' set for wundows. then you can most likely delete the  compaq partitions. but be sure you got a backup/restore disk set made04:36
zykotick9bigbadben: oh man, i haven't heard "compaq diagnostics" in YEARS - i worked for compaq (in tech support) for a number of years.  thanks for bring back some bad, and good, memories ;)04:37

Liam-awayyou cant just install nvidia-current, you have to build against the linux-source04:37
bigbadbenPinkamena_D, there is no overlap that I can see but I once tried installing Ubuntu 12.10 on my brothers compaq and it would only let me make more than 4 partitions or something crazy like that04:37
Liam-awayin 12.10, that is04:37
bigbadbenzykotick9, you poor thing tech support is the worst I am sure it was awful at compaq as well04:38

zykotick9bigbadben: it was a lot better then Dell ;)  </OT sorry>04:38
Pinkamena_Deverything is a lot better then dell04:39
dr_willis_falcom_:  depends on what you want to do.. for a headless box. theres no point in starting ligghtdm. how you keep it from startisn is up to you04:39
dr_willis_falcom_:  because theres differnrt ways to stop the service from starting04:39
bigbadbenzykotick9, next your going to tell me you worked for gateway lol all done no more off topic I swear04:40
dr_willis_text mode will stop any of the *dm login managers from starting04:40

IdiothelpI ensured that I typed it correctly05:02
IdiothelpAlso I tried locatong pne beforehand05:03
dr_willis_Idiothelp:  and why dident you just go to the alt-ctrl-f1 console ?05:03

Idiothelpdoesn't work05:04
dr_willis_i would suggest rebooing into text mode and see if the consoles work and verify the xorg,conf file is gone and see if you can start a x session from the text consoles05:04
IdiothelpThere wasn't an xorg.conf in the.first place05:04

JPmKHello, I am trying to install firefox manually. What I have done: downloaded the last version of firefox, untar the package, move it to /usr/lib and made a symlink in this way: ln -s /usr/lib/firefox-20.0/firefox /usr/bin/firefox. But when i try to run firefox, it says: bash: /usr/bin/firefox: No such file or directory. I checked in /usr/bin with "ls -l" -> firefox -> /usr/lib/firefox-20.0/firefox* (it looks fine to me). Why it doesn't work? Please, I would like05:08

Bodsdalinuxdumb: ok, a linux filesystem structure starts at / and the bit your used to seeing is in /home/username/ - when you mount another system, its / is at the mountpoint on whatever other system your using, so all files from /mount/mydevice  are the same as the files from / if you booted into that system06:59

hje841Dr_willis, the 'Additional Drivers' installation failed. /var/log/jockey.log talks about KMH enabled: false and 'alt_ld.so.conf'07:45

hje841Dr_willis, okay. thanks :)07:47
Dr_Willis-or just try instaslling 'nvidia-current'  with apt-get07:47
hje841Dr_willis, well.. nvidia-current is already the newest. not just activated07:48

Dr_Willis-vnc786:  if its using the 'vesa'' driver that would explain the slowness.  Intel has some tool now to install their latest drivers.  i saw it mentioned on the webupd8 blog site. (or was it the omgubuntu blog site)07:55
ddsscDr_willis: xrandr doesn't detect it.. which is funny because it's showing a logo, I just can't get to it07:55

Dr_Willis-jstrake:  if you have a lot of kernels instgsalled.. you may want to use the package manager to remove the kernels..08:07
TakeItEZjstrake: remove the unneded packages, not the files/dirs08:07

stevenmLets say I want 12.04 - but I want the latest GNOME 2.x - Tried MATE, it's fine except for things that look for gnome or gconf and fail - So I'd like real GNOME 2.x - is there a ppa for it?08:12
Dr_Willis-stevenm:  gnome2 is basically dead..08:13
Dr_Willis-i doubt if you can get it on newer ubuntu systems with out breaking things badly08:13
stevenmDr_willis, I don't care - it'll do for now until MATE matures/fixes-the-bugs or until I'm happier with another DE all together08:13
Dr_Willis-it it cant be done you wont care.. because it cant be done..08:14
sveinseI dont get it. I cant my Logitech USB headset mic to work anymore. It has been working flawlessly for over two years. Pavucontol report just silence from mic and alsamixer sais mic is fully on. I'm running precise on amd6408:14
sveinseHow can I fix this?08:14
stevenmare you saying that on some kind of basis?08:14
Dr_Willis-gnome-shell is working on a better fallback mode for the next release of gnome-shell. of if you want an old skool desktop - many people use lubuntu, or xfce08:14
bazhangstevenm, search the ppa. thats not supported here.08:15
=== kevin is now known as Guest29733
stevenmMATE is based on GNOME 2.32 right?  so if MATE is compatible by adding a PPA for itself and dependencies - so could the original GNOME 2.3208:15
bazhangstevenm, its not supported, thus offtopic08:16
Dr_Willis-never seen  a ppa for gnome2 mentioned in here.08:16
bazhangstevenm, gnome the coming version will have a fallback option, as was mentioned08:16
stevenmbazhang, well a) that's not here yet b) i don't trust it'll work the same08:17
Dr_Willis-i imagine once the gnome devs have a nice official fallnback mode.. these other 'gnome 2 wanna bes' will fade away08:17
bazhangstevenm, and this has nothing to do with ubuntu.   MATE is an unsupported PPA, go search the ppa if you wish08:17
Dr_Willis-but getting that release of gnome-shell working - will require 13.04+ from what i hear.08:17
sveinseThe problem with the "missing" USB mic seems to have come with a recent kernel or update or something. It's fails consistently across multiple USB headsets08:17
Dr_Willis-sveinse:  try the older kernels from the grub menu to see if it comes back?08:18
stevenmeverything i've read says the fallback mode is scrapped08:18
Dr_Willis-latest gnome shell news for 3.8 ive read mentioned how they are having their own official  gnome2 theme08:19
bazhangstevenm, thats not correct. this is from GNOME, not UBUNTU08:19
jstrakeThank you Dr_Willis! Gave me nearly 4G back!08:19
Dr_Willis-jstrake:  you had a lot of old kernels :)08:19

jonyhow can I open remote desktop in Haguichi with Remmina?08:21
TakeItEZtime to add an option to remove old kernels in the system-settings (or wherever). except for devs it's nonsense to keep more than 2-3 kernels in a system08:21

Dr_Willis-jstrake:  grub just displays the last 2.. thats noting to do witth what the package manager installs08:22
ddsschow do I install nvidia drivers? http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html08:22

l057c0d3rDr_willis, i believe ubuntu-tweak still have the option to remove old kernels08:23
Dr_Willis-i havent had much luck getting ubuntu-tweak to work lately.. but i havent really needed it much lately either.08:24

Dr_willisjony,  im not sure you can with vino. If you want a vnc session you can connect to starting at bootup. theres other ways to do that. depending on the detils of what you want10:33
k1l_ddssc: there is no need to seperately format before starting with the install run. just check the option to format at install10:34
theadminkewel: Version of what? sudo apt-get install chromium-browser flashplugin-installer10:34
Dr_willisclarkk,  that would be how the bios works.. Mine does the same thing.  POST, grub and other items are on the DVI conevtor here.. untill X starts up then the hdmi kicks in10:34
keweltheadmin: I'm laughing cause that SHOULD work!!!10:34
clarkkalso, I really need to close X so that I can install the driver, but when I click one of the function keys to go to the shell without X, the primary display loses its signal. Does anyone knw how I can resolve that too?10:34
clarkkhello Dr_willis10:35
jonyDr_willis, I want remote desktop from Ubuntu desktop to another Ubuntu desktop10:35
ddssck1l_, I got a separate drive for swap right now as per this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdcH_mcWVMs tutorial. Can I assign the swap drive to ubuntu ?10:35
Dr_willisclarkk, boot to text mode perhaps10:35
ddsscdo I have to?10:35
jonyDr_willis, and I cannot use portforwarding10:35
kewelalready installed.10:35
ddsscdoes ubuntu need a swap drive?10:35
k1l_ddssc: yes, just assign it to /swap in the dialog10:35
kewelman I had stuff working alright, then a few nights ago I did 189 updates and stuff went awry10:35
clarkkDr_willis: so there is no way to change them over without swapping them on the card?10:35
theadminddssc: It doesn't need one, but it's recommended10:35
Dr_willisjony,  err.. yes.. vnc is for remote desktops..  what does port forwarding have to do with it? You want to use vnc over the internet? you should setup a ssh tunnle for that.10:36
ddssck1l_, alright cheers.10:36
Dr_willisclarkk,  not that ive seen.10:36
ddsscwill post results10:36
architk1l, i thought he want to remove linux part. once it for all10:36
k1l_ddssc: it doesnt need  /swap. that depends on your ram and workflow10:36
jonyDr_willis, however, all is set up and working with hamachi + vino, but vino starts only AFTER login :(10:36
keweltoo awry.  so being nice and rash I did a fresh install .. then got all my updates then went on the quest to get youtube back up10:36
Dr_willisjony,  make lightdm auto login your user perhaps?10:36
kewelI'm worried lubuntu doesn't like my olda$$ putor anymore.10:36
kewelI should said that hours ago, right?10:36
jonyDr_willis, I want an unattended access on the remote pc10:36
keweljust a hunch10:36
* theadmin is happy here with Firefox :P10:37
clarkkDr_willis: ok, that's a minor inconvenience. However, I really need to be able to use the F keys to get to the shell. It worked before the latest kernel update. Do you know how I can resolve this?10:37
kewelshyea .. I _ran_ chromium instead of firefox cause this machine has 512 ram10:37
jonyDr_willis, but I want some kind of security on the remote desktop too since I won't be there phisycally10:37
clarkkDr_willis: but, how do I boot to text mode, incidentally?10:37
Dr_willisjony,  you can set up vnc servers to start automatically and not even have X loaded at all. those sessions would not be visible on the local machine either.. vnc is a flexiable tool. VINO is only one way to be using it.10:37
keweland heck it was long ago when I got stuff working, I think I had problems with flash and ff too.  oh well.10:38
Dr_willisjony,  you way.. the desktop would be totally visible to whoever is in the same room as the pc.10:38
kewelas in, that was another reason I used chrome10:38
Dr_willisclarkk,  edit the /etc/default/grub and put in the text option 'quiet splash text'10:38
Dr_willisclarkk,  or for one time usssage.... edit the grub menu line10:38
ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode10:38
jonyI didn't installed any VNC... only openssh and vino on the remote desktop10:40
jonyDr_willis, I didn't installed any VNC... only openssh and vino on the remote desktop10:40
Dr_willisjony,  and vino is one specilized vnc server.10:40
Dr_willisjony,  theres several others out there.10:41
Dr_willistightvnc, vnc4server, x11vnc10:41
jonyDr_willis, so I can install a VNC server wich will connect to remote without showing anything on the remote PC's display?10:41
Dr_willisjony,  thats how MOST vnc servers work.. vino and x11vnc show the current desktop.. tightvnc, vnc4server and others DONT show the current desktop.10:42
clarkkDr_willis: than you - I will give that a go, and report back10:42
Dr_willispeople think vnc on linux can only work by shareing the current desktp. :) thats not the case on linux.. it is the case on windows10:42
jonyDr_willis, which do you recommend for my situation?10:43
Benkinoobyhi, i want to mount something to ~/blah - but when i use mount, i have to use root-account and later i can not access the mounted files (permission) - how do i go about that?10:43
kewelhow do I get this: https://launchpad.net/~skunk/+archive/pepper-flash/+build/435424910:43
kewelthat's my chromium ver10:43
Dr_willisjony,  you have really not given any details.  You can easially set up tightvnc where your user can ssh in, and then start the vncservice, then connect via any client.. but if you are doing this over the internet. you will wan tto set up a ssh tunle. or just use ssh + x forwarding to forwared single apps.10:44

NewberHello. Im running Uthe newest Ubuntu and I want to know hot to install an tar.gz package13:20
tarek_ActionParsnip: in my home folder I have several hidden folders but none that start with tryton13:20
ubottuFiles with extensions .tar, .gz, .tgz, .zip, .bz2, .7z, .ace and other archive file formats can be opened with file-roller (GNOME) or Ark (KDE) - Also see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FileCompression13:20
ActionParsniptarek_: is it in ~/.config13:20
k1lNewber: are you sure that program doesnt come in the repos?13:21
ActionParsnipNewber: the file extension doesn't tell us anything13:21
yourimym1what is best swap value for better performance ?13:21
k1lNewber: andthere should be a readme in it, or the place where you ot that archive (tar.gz is a archive like .zip)13:21
tarek_ActionParsnip: yes there is13:21
yourimym1if i have 2gb RAM and 1.5 gb swap13:21
ActionParsnipyourimym1: depends on how much ram you have13:21
tarek_ActionParsnip: there is a tryton folder in .config13:22
k1lyourimym1: there is no performance with swap13:22
k1lyourimym1: swap is always a slow fallback. using ram is always faster13:22
Newberkll, ok I will look. Thanks13:22
ActionParsnipyourimym1: 1.5Gb swap space isn't really enough for 2Gb RAM, you will want 2.2Gb, you will not be able to hibernate with 1.5Gb swap13:22
yourimym1ActionParsnip: i've disabled hibernate13:22
ActionParsnipyourimym1: I always set swappiness to between 5 and 1013:22
k1lNewber: what program do you want to install?13:23
tarek_ActionParsnip: from where do I go from here?13:23
ActionParsnipNewber: its like asking the same in windows, the archive could contain source code, or binaries, or a mix13:23
=== erry_ is now known as erry
ActionParsnipNewber: there is no single answer, simply saying that it is an archive and expecting an exact answer is a bit silly13:24
ActionParsnipNewber: is the application not in software centre?13:24
yourimym1ActionParsnip:  i need to set swap to 40 , what is the command13:24
NewberActionParsnip. Well, calling me silly is pretty silly itself. Think about it. What can I do with a file container.. Hmmmm. Maybe I want to extract it and install the content right?13:24
julian-delphikiyourimym1, 40 what13:24
ActionParsnipyourimym1: set it in /etc/sysctl.conf    you can then run:  sudo sysctl -p   to apply it13:25
ActionParsnipNewber: but what is the content, the fact it is an archive doesn't dsclose the contents, does it?13:25
SpawnXpHi i deleted the user from webmin, but didnt delete his files , how do i go about deleting his files ?13:25
yourimym1ActionParsnip: which line to edit  ?13:25
ActionParsnipNewber: some archives you can extract and run the files as they are prebuilt files, some contain source  code which will need compiling13:26
ActionParsnipyourimym1: just add the setting at the bottom13:26
ActionParsnipNewber: like I said, there is no single answer13:26
ActionParsnipNewber: the archive could be a hoarde of wallpapers to apply to the system, in which case the archive will be full of images, again this will be different13:27
julian-delphikiNewber, ActionParsnip is correct.13:27
k1lNewber: first way should be to look if its in the official ubuntu repos13:27
NewberActionParsnip, true. I shouldve been more specific. But as I said install its pretty obvious i do not want to install pictures. I mean its possible in one sense.. Nvm, this discussion is useless13:28
yourimym1ActionParsnip:  and disable , and reenable swap then ?13:29
k1lNewber: there are several different ways to "install" programs. that is depending on that format is in that archive. like source code, .sh .deb etc...13:29
ActionParsnipNewber: try extracting the archive, then look at what you have13:30
ActionParsnipNewber: you will then know and you can ask  better question13:30
snugglk1l: are you familiar with windows?13:30
esxNewber: Just tell us *what* you are trying to install!13:30
snuggloh nm13:30

Newberkll, ok. Im used to windows and usually there is a simple way. So, I did not know that.13:30
k1lsnuggl: better try ##windows :)13:30
ActionParsnipNewber: what file did you download?13:31
k1lNewber: we have more than just .exe under linux13:31
snugglk1l: nm13:31
k1lNewber: so again: look out for your secret program, if it comes in the official ubuntu repos. or if there is a PPA for it.13:31

Newberkll, ok. So which would be the best way and what information would you need in order to give me the best way to install?13:40
k1lNewber: you are free to install what ever you want. dont get me wrong. but ubuntu got some automatic services that could help you.13:40
Newberalright. Which is?13:40
k1lNewber: the best way is to install the software from the official repos. (like mentioned several times before). if its not in there i would suggest to look out for a PPA repo13:41
lacrymologyhow come I have kernel 3.2 when 3.8 is out? how can I install 3.8 on precise?13:41
k1llacrymology: you can get the 3.5 kernel on precise.13:42
cfhowlettlacrymology, try sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade13:42
k1llacrymology: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack13:42
lacrymologycfhowlett: I installed a LTS version so I didn't need to do that for a while13:42
cfhowlettlacrymology, I beg to differ.  I've had at least 2 kernel upgrades on 12.0413:43
k1llacrymology: LTS is meant for stability. it wont have the latest kernel and latest stuff13:43
lacrymologyk1l: fantastic. But the current kernel is broken. It's got at least a known issue that is fixed in later versions13:44
lacrymologythat's not been patched13:44

j2daoshhey all. i'm having a weird bug with unity. if i log into the gui, then switch to the f1 console, log in, run some generic commands (ls, ps -ef, etc) and then try to switch back to the gui, it never comes back. it just turns off the monitor signal (monitor light goes from green to amber) and i can't get the gui back unless i init 6. anyone else had this problem before?13:45
lacrymologyk1l: at least the issue in the tracker's been abandoned for a while with no resolution13:45
lacrymologyk1l: all I really know is I have latest packages and I can reproduce an issue that's been around for over 6 months13:46
lacrymologyk1l: ok, so different question. Is there a way I can compile and install kernel 3.8?13:46
tarek_ActionParsnip: do you have any other options?13:47
lacrymologycfhowlett: I too have had at least two kernel updates. IIRC, it went from 2.8 to 3.2. But the point still stands that 3.8 is out, and I have13:48
k1l!kernel | lacrymology13:48
ubottulacrymology: The core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)13:48
MonkeyDustlacrymology  true, 3.8 is out and 13.04 uses it13:49
lacrymologyk1l: yeah, but in the mainline kernel page there seems to be no 3.8 package for precise. Latest seems to be 3.313:49
cfhowlettlacrymology, if the latest shiny kernel isn't offered via upgrade, as I would expect for LTS, you might have to manually install13:49
lacrymologyMonkeyDust: well, 12.04 is supposed to have.. what, 4ys support?13:49
lacrymologycfhowlett: I think I had misunderstood what dist-upgrade does, I'll try that13:50

lacrymologyk1l: sorry, didn't understand that13:52
ronillonsnuggl: i thought it would be something like that, thanx13:52
MonkeyDustlacrymology  a patch is not a new kernel13:52
harrisrdz, how do i use wicd-curses13:52
snugglMonkeyDust: it is, just not a new kernel version13:52

litropymojtaba, you'll lose all your files.14:54
litropymojtaba, but ya, it will reset to default settings, and you should be able to use it, mind you,, as a totally blank drive.14:54
mojtabalitropy: I know that, I have just copied those I could.14:54
mojtabalitropy: Will it fix the problems like bad sectors?14:55
litropymojtaba, so ya ... use a liveCD or liveUSB, open up gparted, and go ahead.14:55
litropymojtaba, it will set all the bits on the drive to 0.14:55
mojtabalitropy: Why liveCD?14:55
mojtabalitropy: I have ubuntu and it is external hard drive14:56
litropymojtaba, if your drive is physically failing, it won't fix that.14:56
mojtabalitropy: How can I make sure if it is physically or not?14:56
litropymojtaba, so long as you're not running your OS off of the drive, then you can use gparted without the liveCD/liveUSB14:56

anekssomething123, you mean gparted? tried sudo apt-get install gparted?14:57
litropymojtaba, off-hand, I'd say if you reformat it, treat it like you should, and you still have drive-related problems, it's pretty safe to say it's physically failing.14:58
something323no, the exact word is "gpart" gparted itself runs fine, but to run the data recovery it gives an error14:58

ubuntu_I have a quick question. Is it possible to install a fully working copy of Ubuntu onto a USB Stick?15:15
MonkeyDustubuntu_  you mean a persistent install?15:15
litropyubuntu_ yes15:15
bitbyteany one any good with the noip2 client15:15
wilee-nileeubuntu_, Yes use the something other option in the install gui and manually install it.15:15
ubuntu_Yeah, a persistent install so that I dont have to click on Try Me everytime I boot and so I can install stuff.15:15

wilee-nileeubuntu_, You will still get that with a persistent.15:16
ubuntu_Oh, so, I cant install things like flash to this USB stick I made?15:16
wilee-nileeubuntu_, How big is the stick?15:17
ubuntu_I used the LinuxPendriveinstaller to make this stick I am using now.15:17
MonkeyDustubuntu_  no, that's enough for a live installation15:18
wilee-nileeubuntu_, Please use nicks always. ;) A persistent install has a casper-rw file that fills up after awhile and is basically uncleanable it has limited use, a kernel upgrade can brick it as well. However you can have flash.15:18
bitbyteany one in here any good at making cron schedules or know any good guides, I'm looking to run the noip2 client every 30 mins as the client its self for some reason dosnt run and I've found nothing in the /var/syslog15:19

j2daoshb80905: it depends on what access you are trying to block.16:27
b80905j2daosh: so i would not be able to use it16:27
mstentaThe main issue seems to be: I can create a FAT32 TrueCrypt partition that is accessible on both Mac and Linux, but it doesn't allow files larger than 4GB… but the VirtualBox image will need to be larger than that.16:27
j2daoshmstenta: if you make it FAT, it should work on any16:27

lancienmstenta,  4 why not? i dont think it's easy to make this with truecrypt but when you install your vm you could crypt her with LVM maybe16:28

I don't get to the grub menu, the system displays a blinking cursor for a moment and then moves right to Windows.16:42

cvance_aneks: I manually select the CD from my boot menu but it doesn't even get to the grub prompt (of the livecd)16:50

ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter17:06
anekslehvita, also, I had the same issue and it had nothing to do with nomodeset. All it was is that Ubuntu installed grub onto my other hard disk. Choosing that hard drive as my first boot option fixed it.17:08

nothungwilee-nilee: don't see anything on the desktop, Ubuntu automounts USB hard drives and flash drives just fine.  I'm running amd64 version of Ubuntu 12.04 LtS17:23

nothungwilee-nilee: yes, I do have the double USB plugged into a power USB hub17:24
nothungwilee-nilee: I don't know if using a hub is a problem17:24
wilee-nileenothung, Check that the power may need to be plugged directly to the computer17:25
nothungwilee-nilee: ah, I tried a non-audio CD and automount worked17:25
billionsso I'm running 12.04 and when I scroll the screen cannot refresh quick enough, so it stutters. Is this normal?  I am running the restricted nvidia drivers btw17:26

Kenjirobut then... what should I do?17:30
ubuntuaddictedOerHeks, i didn't, i removed splash and quiet so I could see the messages during boot up and I noticed that message during boot up. where are those messages stored because I can't find it in syslog, kern.log, or dmesg17:30

nothungActionParsnip, thanks for the tip17:37
nothungwilee-nilee, I tried inserting the audio CD while VLC was running and that did the trick17:38

ActionParsnipXdm2: please don't17:38
ubuntuaddictedActionParsnip, all I did was sudo service network-manager start17:38
nothungwilee-nilee, I wonder why it was so difficult to get Ubuntu to recognize my audio CD.  Should I submit a bug report?17:38
ubuntuaddictedActionParsnip, BUT i also just noticed that its eth1 NOT eth0 which per my interfaces file says it should be a static IP but currently it's eth1 and DHCP so it's got the wrong IP17:39

ubuntuaddictedllutz, why would i need to check/change that?17:41
ActionParsnipHolymacaroons: ask in #ubuntu-server too17:42
llutzubuntuaddicted: is the MAC in that file correct? that file makes udev renaming network-ifaces17:42
wilee-nileenothung, Look at removable media.17:42
nothungwilee-nilee, hmm well I just tried running Rhythmbox and inserting the audio CD and it was recognized.  So I guess you have to have an audio program open and then insert the audio CD.  I would have expected the audio CD to be recognized without having an audio program open.17:42

wilee-nileenothung, It has a rhythmbox choice though.17:45
ubuntuaddictedllutz, i think i know what happened. i basically swapped my OS install and hard drives to new hardware thus a new ethernet controller and /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules shows eth0 MAC as something else. NOT what iconfig shows for eth1. So how do I fix it?17:46
llutzubuntuaddicted: change the MAC to your needs or simply remove that file and reboot, it will be created17:46
ubuntuaddictedllutz, ok, i'll try to just remove the file and reboot. is that ok you're saying?17:47
llutzubuntuaddicted: it should be ok, yes.17:47

tasslehoffActionParsnip: hm, EOL as in end of support?18:37
dakotawulfy volkan:  then add them  ask were they are point it it will add them18:37
dakotawulfyvolkan: n/p18:37
ActionParsnipTasslehoff : yes18:37
tasslehoffActionParsnip: hm. because the support duration is shorter from 13.04?18:38
icedwaterHi again :) I successfully created a bootable ISO of my own Ubuntu remix... but when I boot it with qemu-system-i386 -cdrom name.iso, no packages can be found.18:38
volkandakotawulfy: thanks!18:38
ActionParsnipTasslehoff : yes quite a lot shorter18:38
icedwaterThe error I get is E: Unable to locate any package files, perhaps this is not a Debian Disc or the wrong architecture?18:39
tasslehoffanyway, it seems to me that raring is the better choice on the rMBP, so I'll go that way. I always have the latest version installed anyway :)18:39
ali4ever4ActionParsnip, thanks18:39
tgm4883ActionParsnip, I'd be surprised if there wasn't a fix for that18:39
icedwaterIt should be both, assuming the debootstrap bits were done correctly.. so I'm a little lost as to where the packages might have vanished to on a 688MB image.18:39
icedwaterIs it something wrong with my filesystem size/manifest?18:39
ActionParsnipTgm4883 : fix for what?18:40
tgm4883ActionParsnip, for 12.10 having longer support than 13.0418:40
icedwaterAnyhow, if anyone who knows something about it sees this, leave me a message please.18:41
icedwaterI'm off to bed. Thanks :)18:41
ActionParsnipTgm4883 : you could maintain the release yourself I guess18:41
tgm4883ActionParsnip, because that would break the supported upgrade paths18:41
tgm4883ActionParsnip, nah, it's the upgrade paths I'm worried about. I think that they will probably just support upgrading from 12.10 to 13.04+118:41
ActionParsnipTgm4883 : just stick to LTS18:42
fuhoHi, I seemed to have lost sound on the laptop in the past day or two. Running U12.04 XFCE, how can I figure out what went bad?18:42
fuhoDedicated laptop buttons, still pop up applet which moves the progress bar, but no sound ever comes out.18:43
dakotawulfytgm4883: was able to get the upgrade to work from the 12.04 to 12.10 then to the 13.04 on the 64 bit but not able to for the 32 bit18:43
tgm4883ActionParsnip, yes, while that does work for some folks,that isn't going to be what everyone does. "Just stick to LTS" isn't a valid answer to "There is no valid upgrade path from 12.10"18:43
tgm4883dakotawulfy, not sure what you mean?18:43
dakotawulfywas able to do an updgrade from the 12.04 to make it 12.10 worked on the 64 bit then to the 13.04  work fine on the 64 bit but was not able to get the 32 bit to work18:45
tgm4883dakotawulfy, IDK why it didn't work on 32-bit. It should18:45
dakotawulfywell when i updated the to the18:45
dakotawulfytgm4883 12.10  was not able to get out on the web18:46
dakotawulfy had seen the bug had one time been able to get it to work but was not able to the last time i tryed18:47
tgm4883dakotawulfy, is there a question in there? I honestly don't know why you are telling me all of this18:47
TuxVarmarisw0rdfish: goddamnit, you had me searching for that file transfer for a good half an hour18:48
dakotawulfysorry  maybe read it wrong thought u wanted to no about upgrade18:48
tgm4883dakotawulfy, ah yea, I don't want to know about upgrade. We were discussing what would/should happen for 12.10 when there will be no valid upgrade path18:49
tgm4883from 12.10 ->18:49
dakotawulfy sorry just got back at computer18:49
dakotawulfytgm4883  did upgrade to 13.0418:50
tgm4883dakotawulfy, yes, currently that is a valid upgrade path18:50
dakotawulfytgm4883:  sorry just did not read that close18:51

TuxVarmaritata_: You can use the "sudo" command19:03
ubottutata_: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information.

^MikeI've been asked to test this kernel (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.9-rc7-raring/) but I'm not sure how to boot it when my system has encrypted LVM set up. So, /boot is on an unencrypted partition, and then it needs to decrypt and mount / in order to continue. Instead, the kernel panics with "cant find init, try passing init=" What do?19:26
Neytiriwilee-nilee, no idea how many sets are currently on the current card19:26
wilee-nileeNeytiri, look in boot, or what does the grub bootloader show.19:27
Neytirii wanna say 919:28

wilee-nileeNeytiri, you only need 2 sets, remove the rest, that card is big enough if maintained.19:29
Neytiriwell i would still like to upgrade it19:29
Neytiriwhen i built this system i ddint have a bigger one19:29
FrEaKmAn_dakotawulfy, thanks19:30

Evansch0anyone seen this error before?22:55
Ryan_Hello everyone, I'm new to Ubuntu and I had a question regarding my new Private folder not asking for a password when attempting to access it.22:56
Evansch0are you logged in under the account you created it from?22:56
Evansch0that might be why22:56
Evansch0not too sure22:57
Evansch0did you password protect it?22:57
ViaNocturna85yeah, if you try to access it from another user account it should not allow you to access it22:57
Ryan_Yes.  But I don't receive a prompt.22:57

Evansch0Ryan_: i found you a site :)22:58
Ryan_Is that why?  I don't use any other accounts, but I have financial information etc that I don't want being accessed from my account.22:58
ViaNocturna85Ryan_: do you want a file or folder to be password protected even in your own home?22:58
Ryan_Yes, in my own home.22:59
Evansch0Ryan_: http://www.liberiangeek.net/2012/04/create-a-private-password-protected-folder-in-ubuntu-11-10-12-04/22:59
ViaNocturna85Ryan_: look into Cryptkeeper22:59
Evansch0Ryan_: that should help22:59
sybiandarmok and jalad at tanagra23:00
ViaNocturna85i do it the old lazy way...put a dot in front of it XD23:00
Evansch0Ryan_: you have to logout or restart you computer for the password protection to apply23:00
Pyro_KillerViaNocturna85 ,  no, just no, it is bad practice and you know it23:01
bray90820Anyone know of an app like gwibber that is touch friendly23:01
ViaNocturna85Pyro_Killer: yeah but since my HDD is encrypted and nobody ever uses my laptop, im not too worried23:01
Evansch0so can anyone help me with my mono error?23:02
Ryan__I have Cryptkeeper but it never launches.  I've tried looking up solutions but I'm confused by them, as I've never used Linux before.23:02
ViaNocturna85bray90820: try 'friends'...although i think thats only 12.10/13.04 though23:02
Pyro_KillerBut telling someone who clearly hasn't encrypted their HDD too just use dot method is not right23:02
sybiantemba his arms wide23:02
bray90820ViaNocturna85: does it have touch scrolling23:02
ViaNocturna85Pyro_Killer: I didnt say that, i said that I do it the old lazy way, I told him about Cryptkeeper23:03
ddsscEvansch0, have you tried #mono ?23:03
Pyro_Killerwhy does wubi not have an IRC23:05
SonikkuAmericaPyro_Killer: 'Cuz it's going down the drain23:05
Pyro_Killerwell it just got "support" for windows 823:06
Pyro_Killerthough it doesn't work23:06
Pyro_Killerthis makes me sad23:07
tgm4883wubi should have died long ago23:08
tgm4883it was a feeble attempt at making it easy for users to test out Ubuntu. The problem is that it did a poor job (performance wise) at it23:08
Pyro_Killeranother question then, is there a way to make a "installer usb pen" for ubuntu with usb 3.0 support?23:08
wilee-nileePyro_Killer, The designer of wubi stated themselves that it was a tryout method, no wubi installs in a UEFI setup as well.23:09
SonikkuAmericaThe first indication of Wubi saying sayõnara was when knome said "No support for Xubuntu"23:09
SonikkuAmericaGrr... sayounara then23:10
anonymous024How safe do you all think text-based browsers are? More or less prone to malware than popular browsers like firefox?23:10

Evansch0_anyone heard of mono error                         (mono:13727): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",23:10
Pyro_Killerwell it got installed, and got added to the boot list of windows, it just threw an error, it got updated like 2 weeks ago23:10

ubottuanonymous024: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus23:11
SonikkuAmericaEvansch0_: You do know what Mono is, right?23:11
Evansch0_i do23:11
ViaNocturna85Evansch0_: try this command: sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf23:11
wilee-nileePyro_Killer, http://askubuntu.com/questions/225048/is-wubi-for-windows-823:12
SonikkuAmericaWell, looks like the pixel mapper done got busted.23:12
Evansch0_pixel mapper?23:12
ViaNocturna85Evansch0_: on launchpad people with the same error report that package fixed it23:13
ViaNocturna85Evansch0_: np23:13
Evansch0_lets try terraria startup again23:13
Evansch0_another error >:|23:14
Evansch0_(mono:14662): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "ubuntulooks"23:14
ViaNocturna85Evansch0_: which error?23:14
harrisno one knows?23:14
=== xy-cloud is now known as xy-cloud_
Evansch0_stupid errors xD23:15
wilee-nileePyro_Killer, Some have to use wubi for various reasons I support that, however it has limitations is all, and is not part of the next release. There is only one helper at the ubuntu forums that has any real skills with it, and is here on occasion.23:15
=== xy-cloud_ is now known as xy-cloud

zykotick9wilee-nilee: really, wubi is being removed?23:16
wilee-nileezykotick9, yeah.23:16
Pyro_Killerwilee-nilee i see my problem has been posted everywhere, i am honestly thinking that it is an issue that has not been resolved23:16
alainushow do I install a .deb package and automatically install all dependencies ?23:16
ViaNocturna85alainus: install gdebi23:17
wilee-nileeplains, I use gdebi it will added them if available.23:17
zykotick9wilee-nilee: thanks23:17
GfelisI have a small problem with a USB printer over 12.10. When i connnect the USB it does not create the device, can any one help please? thank you.23:17
SonikkuAmericaalainus: You can also do [ sudo dpkg -i $PACKAGE ] then do [ sudo apt-get -yf install ]23:18
wilee-nileeGfelis, Have you brought up printer and looked for the driver23:18
zykotick9alainus: the alternative, not using gdebi, is install the deb with dpkg, then run "sudo apt-get -f install" to pull in the dependencies.23:18
SonikkuAmerica(I call it the "yeff-install")23:18
SonikkuAmericazykotick9: Gotcha covered.23:18
Evansch0so ViaNocturna85: seen that error b4?23:19
anonymous024wilee-nilee: I hear that XSS is still a problem on linux, which is why people use programs like no-script with firefox. I'd wonder if that would be an issue on a text based browser.23:19
Evansch0(mono:14662): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "ubuntulooks"    <---- anyone seen this error b4?23:19
Gfelisno, it does not show a linux ubuntu driver, but it has a linux redhat driver..23:20
CFenixhi everyone, I have a clean Lubuntu 12.04 installation and Chromium is giving me an Error with FLash "Could not load Shockwave FLash", i did some search and i found that there's a problem with the file " PepperFlash" wish for some reason i do not have, so i don't know how to fix this problem, thank you for your time23:20
zykotick9anonymous024: most text based browsers lack javascript... i believe elinks supports it a bit (it allows gmail logins anyways)23:21
wilee-nileeanonymous024, I would not use a text browser personally, I use FF with that add on and a few others, but that's me. ;)23:21
wilee-nileenot necessarily for security but ease of use23:21
Pyro_Killerlinks can do javascript the last time i checked23:22
Pyro_Killerbut ff with noscript usually does the job23:22
Evansch0CFenix: chromium-browser --ppapi-flash-path=/opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so --ppapi-flash-version=    <--- try this in your commandline23:22
Evansch0CFenix:  did that help?23:25
wilee-nileeCFenix, You might check the source of your chromium I don't believe it is really maintained the last sable ppa was updated 11 months 3 weeks ago, I would just run chrome of the two.23:25
Evansch0whenever i try to install gtk ubuntulooks in the terminal it says "Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree        Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package gtk2-engines-human-theme"23:30
Evansch0wrong one xD23:31
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: Have ou tried running sudo apt-get update first?23:31
Evansch0no :/23:31
Evansch0running it right now23:31
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: If the theme still exists in the repos, that should fix it.23:31
Evansch0oh ok23:32
Evansch0i will tell you if that works KatsumeBlisk23:32
Evansch0no it doesnt exist23:33
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: What version of Ubuntu are you using?23:34
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: Unity?23:34
Evansch0heres what it did say when i tried installing ubuntulooks with the terminal23:34
Evansch0Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree        Reading state information... Done Package gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source However the following packages replace it:   human-theme  E: Package 'gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks' has no installation candidate23:34
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: Have you tried installig human-theme?23:34
Evansch0says it doesnt exist23:35
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: ubuntulooks has been deprecated because Unity doesn't use GTK2 anymore23:35
Evansch0oh :/23:35
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: According to that line, human-theme replaced it.23:35
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: Have you tried installing human-theme itself?23:35
Evansch0what command shall i use then23:35
Evansch0to install that23:35
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: "sudo apt-get install human-theme"23:36
Evansch0*listens to elevator music*23:36
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: What are you trying to accomplish with this?23:36
Evansch0running terraria23:36
Pyro_Killeror ditch the whole thing and use cinnnamon, or xfce, or kde23:36
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: This probably won't fix that. Why does Terraria require GTK2?23:37
Evansch0but i am using mono23:37
Evansch0no idea23:37
Evansch0so :/23:37
Pyro_Killerif you install gnome-shell i think that will install gtk223:37
Pyro_Killersudo apt-get install gnome-shell23:37
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: Sorry if I'm not much help23:37
KatsumeBliskPyro_Killer: GTK2 is deprecated23:38
KatsumeBliskPyro_Killer: and that doesn't make the engine he wants to install in the repos23:38
KatsumeBliskEvansch0: You're installing a whole new DE.23:38
Evansch0what do i install then23:39
Evansch0i guess i install nothing23:41
KatsumeBlisk!repeat | Evansch023:41
ubottuEvansch0: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/23:41

Noskcajare there now 2 nexus 7 images or has the original been discontinued23:47
AmbroseHi I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 desktop and when it boots up the menu (start menu) is missing, I can still see the clock/wifi/sound icons but just the start menu is missing. I already tried removing the .compiz files and .Xauthority and restarting but that didn't fix it. Anyone know what else to check? Thx.23:47
Pinkamena_DSo I have a new hard drive, and 3 disks: backtrack, ubuntu, and winxp. What is the smoothest way to install 3 side by side?23:48
KatsumeBliskPinkamena_D: Install XP, then one Linux distro, then another.23:49
Pinkamena_Dlast one you install will boot first?23:49
KatsumeBliskPinkamena_D: Depends on how you set it up. Install XP first though. Windows doesn't like other OSes.23:50
Pinkamena_Dyou got that right23:50
wilee-nileeNoskcaj, you might want the #ubuntu-touch channel for nexus installs there is the touch and the raring desktop install.23:50
Noskcajwilee-nilee, thanks, i forgot about that channel23:51
wilee-nileePinkamena_D, Install XP first then ubuntu, we don't support backtrack, however XP first is the important part.23:51
wilee-nileePinkamena_D, If your going to multi-boot you want to be familiar with reloading bootloaders to the mbr if it is a msdos mbr setup.23:53
nat_have a huge question to ask..i'm wish to make ubuntu where i do not have sudo/sudoers.d files on it at all, with a named account that has full access to the entire system, is this possible? i know debian can do it23:54
KatsumeBlisknat_: Ubuntu doesn't have the root account, but that's because it can be dangerous.23:56
KatsumeBlisknat_: Why do you want it?23:56
KatsumeBlisknat_: You can use "sudo su" for a temp "root"23:56
Poisoned_DragonIf you install from an expert install, you can create an ubuntu install with a root user that can be logged in to.23:56
nat_i understand all this, but i'm wishing to make a system that has a root account23:56
nat_don't need a temp root access, wishing user to have full blown access to system23:57
nat_is there any way to install the "root" account?23:57
Poisoned_DragonAll you do is make an admin account and use sudo in terminal23:57
Poisoned_DragonThat's the way it is, and always will be.23:57
nat_i'm already part of admin account/group and still using sudo in terminal, i wish to be dangerous in linux with no sudo23:58
jamesaeppGreetings! I noticed my hard drive was about 66% full for no apparent reason (I don't have 500GB of movies :P) So I did sudo du -h | grep G and found /var/lib/mlocate.db.e1GYsY to be almost 600GB!!! Is it safe to delete this file?23:58
Poisoned_DragonIf you install from an expert minimal install, you can set root to be logged into by you.23:58
KatsumeBlisknat_: Remove the password requirement for sudo for that user. RUnning sudo in front of every command would essentially do what you want.23:58
Poisoned_DragonI don't think you can change that after an install is done without a root user.23:58
jamesaeppnat_ : I use sudo su23:59
