nerderok i'll try00:02
Oran_i have ssd with 256 for ubuntu and winodws00:02
Oran_so i have enough space but iam not sure how to split it well, cause i need win for some gaming sessons i cant use just ubuntu00:03
sporkeeeOran_, Use the size needed.00:03
Oran_thats the point i never needed to split my hdd for dual boot , so i never had to made the choice00:04
Dr_WillisOran_:  if you are going to be doing just simple programing. you could just run lubuntu in a virtual box session.00:04
Oran_nah, i really want to use ubuntu more and more00:04
sporkeeeOran_, ubuntu installed stock in one partition is less than 5 gigs plus a swap partition.00:04
sporkeeethats a minimal amount00:05
Oran_i mean guys, how much space do u use for ubutnu + programms for office use + eclipse + some framworks00:05
odayDr_Willis, i just installed conky and i launch in terminal, but i can't see anything on the screen. Can it be because i use gnome desktop?00:05
Oran_i can give more than 30 with no problem00:05
Oran_i just wonder if i shall go for 50 or 100 gb00:06
Dr_Willisoday:  conky  works with gnome-desktop00:06
Oran_btw i will have secoudn hdd for big files for both systems00:06
nerderDr_Willis, Amazing ;)00:06
odayDr_Willis, so what can be the problem?00:06
sporkeeethe shell is mutter though00:06
Dr_Willisoday:  no idea. its worked for me when i ran it from a terminal under unity or gnome, or are you auto-starting it?00:07
Oran_does some got expirience about using programms for windowfs and ubuntu  on an 2 place?00:07
odayDr_Willis, just runing in terminal conky00:09
Dr_Willisthere should be a conky panel showing on the desktop if you minimize all  the windows.00:09
odayDr_Willis, nothing.00:10
Dr_Willisoday:  tried with the default conky setup>? no error messages?  does ps ax | grep conky show conky running?00:11

sporkeeeagarwood, We can't really help with debian here.00:13
SonikkuAmericaagarwood: /j #debian00:13
Dr_Willisoday:  kill it with 'killall conky' and try with the default conky config perhaps00:13
odayDr_Willis, what do u mean by default config?00:13
Dr_Willisoday:  if you have no .conkyrc file. then conky uses the default00:13
agarwoodok no problem I understand, thank you !!00:14
odayDr_Willis, now it works. but how do i change the settings now?00:15
Dr_Willisoday:  make a conky config that does what you want00:15
DarkAceLaptopDr_Willis, turns out I'm going to need x for this00:15
Dr_Willisconky has 10000's of pages/sites/examples of configs00:15
DarkAceLaptopis there a way to do this?00:15
Dr_WillisDarkAceLaptop:  to do what?00:15
DarkAceLaptopDr_Willis, run a program as another user from the current user00:16
Dr_Willissu username   --command whatever00:17
Dr_Willisi thought worked for me.00:17
odayDr_Willis, kk, i'll make one.. should i save it as .conkyrc in the homefolder?00:18
Dr_Willisoday:  conky can be told to look anywhere.00:18
Dr_Willissee the conky homepage/docs/faq for details and examples00:18
DarkAceLaptopit says --command isn't an option00:18
DarkAceLaptopoh wait00:18
odayDr_Willis,  i got it working already, ty.00:19
DarkAceLaptopyeah, I dunno, it's saying stuff like 'You forgot to call g_type_init()'00:19
DarkAceLaptop(process:16185): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: /build/buildd/glib2.0-2.34.1/./gobject/gtype.c:2720: You forgot to call g_type_init()00:20
Dr_Williswhat app are you trying to run?00:20
DarkAceLaptopI'm using it right now00:20
DarkAceLaptopit uses a panel icon, if that's relevant00:20
DarkAceLaptopnotification icon, rather00:21

[0_1UNDRtheBOTSthat works too00:30
nerderrrAnybody know how can i leave the SideBar?00:30
Dr_Willisjavier:  it has to be ran from the console also.. and not under X00:30

DaSpawnIs this a good place to ask a question regarding LVM and mirroring?00:32
willowsknas: did you try googling something like "edubuntu sound not working"?00:32
h00kwillows: we try to refrain from telling people to google in here, it's not always quite helpful00:33
ubottuWhile Google is useful for helpers, many newer users don't have the google-fu yet. Please don't tell people to "google it" when they ask a question.00:33

ronnieanyone know anything about rooting android?00:57
Dr_Willis totally depends on your android device ronnie .. see #android channel00:58
ronnieive got 2 lg optimus s running 2.3.3 and a lg viper  running 4.0.400:59
Kyedfx: does the phrase "port forwarding" mean anything to you?00:59
dfxronnie go see xda developpers or androidcentral00:59
ronnieive checked both and nothings working01:00
dfxKye: well ido see it in the connectbot app but ido click it nethin happaned01:00
Kyeconnectbot? is that an ssh client or something.01:00
Dr_Willisits a ssh client for android.01:00
dfxKye an android one01:00
Dr_Willistheres many alternative ssh clients for android01:00
Dr_WillisYou do need to enable port forwarding on the router to forward the ssh port to the right pc01:01
GeekDudeI have 2 hard drives. Drive 1 has windows on it, Drive 2 has whoknowshwat on it. I want to install ubunt onto drive2. I'm using a LiveUSB. I was told to disconnect Drive1 while formatting Drive2, then when done installing, reconnect Drive1 and add it to the /boot/grub/device.map and run update-grub01:01
ronnieive tryed on rootingt on both windows and linux01:01
Pentium44looky ^01:01
Kyedo you know how to get into your modem/router settings dfx? you'll find port forwarding settings in there01:01
Dr_WillisPentium44:  please dont spam stuff like that.01:02
Pentium44yes sur Dr_Willis01:02
dfxkye yes i do01:02
Kyeyou'll want to forward tcp port 22 to whichever  ip address your machine is using on your network01:02
Kyeugh it's like someone just learned that html files are editable and wanted to make fun of Ubuntu01:03
GeekDudeDoes anyone have instructions or advice on how to put ubuntu onto a second internal drive, without corrupting the first internal drive (that has windows on it)01:03
Kyethe installer should handle that for you GeekDude, but if you want to be sure, just physically unplug the drive before you install it01:04
Dr_WillisGeekDude:  tell the installer to put grub on the 2nd hd.. and it shopuld touch the first hd.. or just unplug the first hd. ;) install.. plug it back in01:04
GeekDudeKye, That's what I've done. I had to shift the second drive to the first drive slot because it wouldn't detect it, though01:04
chaotixi would like to add somethings like "open with gedit" to the right click menu in nautilus...  as i am not adept in scripting and programming languages, in fedora i would use a program called Beesu to manage my nautilus scripts...  it does not exist for ubuntu and the nautilus scripts manager does not come preloaded with any scripts, i guess you have to write them yourself...  for now, i just need a script for "open in Gedit", can som01:05
chaotixeone help me out with that??01:05
GeekDudeI also have no idea how to properly format a drive. I've deleted all the current partitions, and now I've heard I need to add a "swap" partition before making the main partitions (which should be ext4)01:05
Kyethat's odd01:05
Kye@ not detecting the drive01:06
Dr_Willischaotix:  you just need the right script in your nautilus scripts directory. if beesu wrote one on redhat. you copyd copy the script over to a ubuntu box01:06
KyeGeekDude: again, the installer should handle creating the proper partitions01:06
chaotixDr_Willis, i cant find that beesu one though...   :(  thats what i am looking for01:06
sybrekhi .. short question: how can run a sh-file from dash ? i created a .desktop-file, but when i click the app in the dash nothing happens01:07
GeekDudeKye, The drive just has junk on it, should I select "Replace XP with Ubuntu"?01:07
Kyeif the drive doesn't have anything valuable, it can't hurt01:07
Kyei thought you said it didnt have any partitions01:07
GeekDudeI was trying to remove them in the custom installation01:07
GeekDude"something else"01:08
Kyenot sure, don't use Ubuntu desktop.01:08
Kyebut if you're sure it's not the other drive01:08
ronnieim bored imma dual boot android01:08
Kyeit cannot hurt choosing that option, it's not going to ruin your drive or anything.01:08
GeekDudeThe main drive is unplugged01:08
JFogertyhey i done a fresh install of ubuntu 12.10 and when it loads compiz crashes. It's an install onto a dell dimension 2400 if that matters01:12
SkinnyVAnybody care to help me? I am setting up my first dedicated server and never really worked much with linux. I managed to install almost everything I needed but I can't for the life of me have a process autu-start with the system01:14
cyrano_I just started having this issue. X seems to crash right after logging in to Ubuntu. Just after the lightdm login it goes black and goes back to the login screen. I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this now. Any suggestions?01:14
Dr_Williswhat process SkinnyV ?01:14

Dr_Willisthen you are doing somting wrong.  SkinnyV  ;)01:17
SkinnyVof course I am lol01:17
Dr_Williswhat is the line in rc.local starting the script?01:17
cyrano_Dr_Willis: yes the system used to work up until last night. I have tried removing the Xorg.conf as the system always worked fine without one and was trying to get a triple monitor setup going prior to that. Then I made a new xorg file using nvidia-xconfig and nothing changed still crashes back to login. I haven't tried the guest or another user yet.01:17
ArrickIdleOne, you around tonight?01:18
Dr_Williscyrano_:  common issue is the users .Xauthority file gets owned by root. Try removeing/renameing it..01:18
SkinnyVlet me try to refind what I did DrWilis01:18
SkinnyVthats the first line of the script I was trying for rc.local01:20

SkinnyVso i just add the 2 su line to rc.local?à01:36
Dr_Williserr. yes..01:36
Dr_Willisyou dont even know if the command sare getting ran01:36

Dr_Williswhat command works exactly?01:49
SkinnyVthis is what work manually01:49
SkinnyV$ deluged01:49
SkinnyV$ screen -fa -d -S deluge-web -m deluge-web01:49
usr13SkinnyV: You are adding a line to rc.local that starts with su -c01:49
usr13SkinnyV: What is  "su -c" for?01:49
SkinnyVyes usr1301:49
jayis there a fix for my laptop mouse and keyboard not repsonding until i force reboot like 2 or 3 times?01:50
betraydthats like a sudo01:50
SkinnyVI supposed it was to execute the command as root, but I am taking the script from a tutorial,01:50
Dr_Willisyou want it to run as root? or as a user?01:50
Dr_Willissu  runs it as the user you tell it to01:50
Dr_WillisUsage: su [options] [LOGIN]01:51
usr13SkinnyV: Do you not know that rc.local is run as root anyway?  su -c is not necessary01:51
BlackWebHow would I create permanent Iptables, So that when the system is rebooted then they remain intact, Is a script the only way?01:51
Dr_Willissu would switch the thing to be ran as a user. if he wants it ran as user.01:51
usr13SkinnyV: And as Dr_Willis points out, it would require a password.01:51
Dr_Williserr.. it hasent in the past for me usr1301:51
usr13Dr_Willis: If he wants it run as user, rc.local is not the place for it.01:52
Dr_Willissu -c deluged USER_NAME_HERE01:52
Dr_Willishe wants it to run at bootup.  without logging in first.01:52
Dr_WillisBUT if he is using encrypted homes.. that could be an issue01:52
dfx1Dr_Willis: icant set up my router well i tho but still does not work any idea01:52
SkinnyVim not quite sure, I never really used linux, got everything working except the auto-start01:52
usr13Dr_Willis: But he just said it was to run it as root.  (I asked him what the su -c was for.)01:52
Dr_WillisI dont think he knows what he wants.. but the example code he pasted runs it as a user.01:53
Dr_Willisfrom the tutorial he was following01:53
SkinnyVwell, I have it working when i manually start it from SSH and trying to have it do the same thing automaticly once the system reboot01:53
BlackWebwould a script be the only way to keep iptables intact on reboot of the system?01:53
usr13SkinnyV: "su -c deluged USER_NAME_HERE"  Is that really what  you have in the script?01:54
BlackWebWhere would I place the command to execute the custom script for the Iptables01:54
SkinnyVyes thats what i tried01:54
Dr_WillisSkinnyV:  you DID use the actual users name?01:54
SkinnyVyeah hehe01:54
usr13SkinnyV: Do you really have a user named USER_NAME_HERE ?01:55
SkinnyVno i replace it with my own user name:)01:55
usr13SkinnyV: Oh, ok.  Sorry.01:55
SkinnyVit would have been funny tough01:55
betraydhe's decrypting it for us01:55
* Mavrik makes a note to change his username to USER_NAME_HERE on all systems.01:55
SkinnyVcan i have just ''deluged'' as a line in the rc.local and have it execute that command on boot?01:57
Dr_Willisit will run as your root user if you do that SkinnyV01:57
Dr_Willisthats the whole point of the su -c part01:57
SkinnyVi suppose it is a security risk?01:58
Dr_Willisa torrent server running as root.. would not be a great idea01:58
Dr_Willisexpecally if its got a web front end01:58
SkinnyVi see01:58

SierraARI need to burn an ubuntu iso onto a disc as a boot disc, so that it can be run off a server to install ubuntu server 12.04. It's apparent that the instructions on the ubuntu website arent working properly because the server doesn't seem to even detect that disc isthere, but it'll detect a windows install disc02:03
Dr_Williswhat files are on the disk? not one big .iso file is it?02:06
Dr_Williswhat tool did you use to burn the iso?02:06
=== Reina is now known as Guest52020
SierraARI followed the instructions given here for windows 7: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/burn-a-dvd-on-windows02:07
SierraARAnd its a bunch of files/folders, not the .iso file in the disc02:08
Dr_Willisyou woldent belive the # of times ive seen people just drag/drop the iso to a cd.. and end up with a single .iso fle on the disk and wonder why it dont work. ;)02:12

SkinnyVman, this is crazy, I have been trying and trying for like 4 hour straight and cant do something as simple as auto-start something02:24
Dr_Willisand most likely due to some typo/path/mistake. ;)02:26
SkinnyVwait a minute, what do they mean by changing the execution bytes when you edit rc.local?02:26
Dr_Willisrc.local should be executable bu default.02:26

nogalanyway, any ideas on the software center thing? Is there a way i can get steam vea comandline, should I just grab a .deb or is there a way to fix the software center?02:45
yoojin@nogal As far as I know, Steam from the Ubuntu Software Center works just fine.02:47
nogalyoojin: if it were I wouldn't be asking ;)02:47
yoojin@nogal Actually, it installs a downloader which brings Steam up to date with the current version. That's why it downloads so quickly at first. What's it doing?02:47
Dr_Willisnogal:  i just get the steam .deb file and use gdebi to install it last time02:48
nogalyoojin: this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5594435/02:48

yofunnogal: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/12/steam-for-linux-now-available-to-all.html02:48
Dr_Willisi guess you can say it installs a 'steam installer' that the user then runs and installs the actual steam binary02:48
yofuntab fail02:48
Dr_Williswhich is differnt then how it works on windows02:49
nogalDr_Willis: that's odd, but i guess it's what works, do you know where an up-to-date .deb is hosted?02:50
yofunnogal:  read http://www.webupd8.org/2012/12/steam-for-linux-now-available-to-all.html02:50
Dr_Willisnogal:  i just googled for steam ubuntu deb  and got it from their homepage or follow the urls02:50
nogalah at the steam store page, thanks02:51
yoojinnogal maybe you should try logging out and in to the Ubuntu Software Center again? Also, how are you getting your messages to show up directly to me in red? xD I'm new.02:52
* Dr_Willis dosent see them in red for yoojin02:52
yofunme either02:53
nogalyoojin: I don't know how your color scheme is setup nor what client you're using, but i assume you're being highlighted because i'm tagging your nickname. and I did try the logout-login of the software center, as well as a hard boot of the laptop02:53
Dr_Willisirc clients can colorize things.. not the people sending the test02:53

Renzaticwhat it's doing is hanging when I fire it up. It'll sit around, consuming 99% of one CPU, and do absolutely nothing for the longest time. Then, sometimes an hour later if I happen to forget about it,it'll open right up04:15

histoSrPx: with cp04:20
rckrdOk, well currently I have a server running on port 32400.  But i'd like to run it on normal http 80, so my URL doesnt have to be rckrd.com:32400/web/index04:21
histoSrPx: rsync -a /some/directory /to/some/destination   would be a sufficient backup of the files. Before you go messing around moving things and deleting stuff.04:21
historckrd: Are you hosting any other web pages on this box?04:22
SrPxhisto: hm okay! thanks04:22
rckrdFrom the web interface, it looks like i changed the server to port 80 and the url to /music, but even after restarting it doesnt seem to work.  The server isnt using a router.04:22

RenzaticOkay, so I'm having Linux GIMP problems. Mainly that it takes three years short of forever to launch, and consumes 99% of one CPUs cycles until it does04:27
Renzaticand I need to know why it's doing that. Sometimes if I forget to kill it from the terminal, it'll just pop up an hour or so later like nothing was wrong04:27
Renzatic...and it's weirding me out04:27
cfhowlettRenzatic, are you running unity?04:27
Renzaticnope, Gnome304:27
Renzatic3.6 on Ubuntu 12.10 to be specific04:28
dodo3773histo: Oh. Is apache a hard dep of plexmediaserver or something?04:28
sporkeeeRenzatic, gimp 2.804:28
cfhowlettRenzatic, install xfce4 or lxde.  boot into that and run gimp.  lighter load on the gpu/cpu might fix04:28
thomedyokay i actually do have vi.. wtf... okay heres the context... i can do it just like i remember when i test vi  name and the :wq04:28
histokyleczar8: check in /media/owner/SYSTEM  are you windows files there?  Also your lsblk output got cut off on that paste04:28
thomedybut im trying to teach myself git repos right now04:28
dodo3773histo: I still think for some reason we are talking about 2 completely different things.04:28
Renzaticyup. I've tried the rev from the software center, and another one I grabbed off a not too suspicious looking PPA04:28
thomedyand it openes into something that mustnot be vi04:28
Renzaticboth do the same thing04:28
thomedyand in that i cant seem to get the normal :vi04:29
RenzaticI tried it a few minutes ago, and it fired right up. Then I closed it to see if it'd do it again, and same problem04:29
histododo3773: He's talking about web hosting part of plex04:29
min|dvir|usthomedy: git will use either the editor set in you gitconfig or $EDITOR.04:29

histothomedy: which vi   will show you and make sure it's not a symlink04:30
dodo3773histo: Do you mean "flex"?04:30
thomedyim trying to figure out wher ethe editer var is in the settings04:30

Renzaticnow that I'm thinking about it, would a theme conflict cause it to hang?04:33
cfhowletthisto, /dev/loop suggest wubi to me ... or am I misinformed?04:33
dodo3773Renzatic: It definitely could.04:33
Dr_WillisRenzatic:  ive herd of some weird thingsd happening with some themes04:33
sporkeeekyleczar8, Did you install ubuntu from windows?04:33
histocfhowlett: ahh could be04:33
kyleczar8sporkeee, yes i did..04:33
bitcrushermin|dvir|us: hmm it says provided by:perl_5.8.704:34
dodo3773Dr_Willis: ditto. gtk3 can be a nightmare04:34
histokyleczar8: is this a wubi install?04:34
RenzaticI'm thinking that might be it. Whenever I switch it to the orange and grey theme, it'll always switch back to a mix between it and default whenever it decides to fire up again04:34
kyleczar8i used the Windows installer to do it on the website.04:34
cfhowlettkyleczar8, and there it is.  windows installer is aka wubi ... and has been discontinued for good reason04:34
histokyleczar8: I don't believe you can access the files from windows in linux when you use wubi04:34
Renzaticthis time I switched it back to default when I got into it, and it's working fine04:34
Renzaticlet me try it again just to make sure04:34
histokyleczar8: No what? If you install ubuntu as a dualboot system you will be able to access your windows partition just fine.04:35
kyleczar8I was having difficulties installing from a cd so i thought it was easier :(04:35
histokyleczar8: install from a thumb drive04:35
cfhowlettkyleczar8, consider a proper dual boot or install use virtualbox.  by design, windows is invisible to ubuntu under a wubi install ... so things don't get brokken04:35

Renzaticstarted it 3 times, and it hasn't given me a problem since I switched the theme to default04:36
kyleczar8Thanks guys, how should i go about removing the version of ubuntu i have now?04:36
cfhowlettkyleczar8, but if your issue is ONLY seeing some windows files, install ubuntuone or dropbox on both OS and keep your files there.04:36
sporkeeekyleczar8, I think you can, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#How_do_I_access_the_Windows_drives.3F04:36
Renzaticwelp, thanks for the help everyone! :D04:36
cfhowlettkyleczar8, just go into windows control delete ubuntu04:36
rckrdhisto: so i tried to listen on 32400 in my ports.conf, but it said that there was an error because the port was already in use.  So plex might be working not with apache04:36
Renzatictil my next stupid question. o/04:36
histokyleczar8: in control panel from windows you can remove it. There is also a migration guide but It's rather difficult if you haven't done too many modifications to your ubuntu it may not be worht migrating wubi to a dualboot. It's faster to just reinstall.04:36
historckrd: Right I'm assuming they have their own web server or something goofy going on. You'd have to ask the plex people I'm affraid.04:37
sporkeeekyleczar8, You can transfer that wubi to a partition if you like.04:37
historckrd: /j #plex04:38
rckrdok thanks for the help04:38
kyleczar8thanks for the help, i am new to ubuntu but love it so far. I think I am going to uninstall and then redo it from a usb.. seems like the wubi was not worth it in the long run.04:38
sporkeeekyleczar8, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MigrateWubi04:38
cfhowlettkyleczar8, best of luck.  come back if you need help04:38
histokyleczar8: No wubi has been discontinued as dualboot has matured enough to be safe and more reliable. Reinstall a true dualboot system or follow the migrate guide that sporkeee posted04:39
thomedyi got it... i rtfm'd and then figured it out04:40

otGOhey guys! could someone help me, please. I have a laptop where I have installed ubuntu and Win 7. after bios update UEFI is not working, thus ubuntu is not loading. I have some important information saved on Ubuntu partition. is there any way to recover that info? I know the account password if that helps08:47
pankaj_surely jatakk08:47
petanotGO yes it is08:47
petanotGO you installed win 7 after ubuntu right?08:48

petanok in order to boot from uefi you need to create a boot partition in fat3208:49

superdoif I copy files to an usb drive (~250MB files) why the system waits 30 second after copying each file?09:43
vltsuperdo: Because it has to actually *write* to USB after reading (fast) from disk09:45
superdoso my usb drive is so slow in writing?09:45
nevynif you're getting 10mb/s to a usb drive you're doing ok.09:46
Jordan_Usuperdo: What do you mean by "waits"?09:47
superdonevyn, the writing is fast, tbh, but I gut a "frozen" state for a half min09:47
superdoJordan_U, ^09:47
nevynsuperdo: the system shouldn't be "frozen" unless it's an ancient singlecore box09:47
Jordan_Usuperdo: Do you mean that the progress bar in the GUI file manager gets close to the end then stops?09:48
Jordan_Usuperdo: Please explain exactly what you're seeing.09:48
superdoKrusader copy window, the percentage goes to 37% to 38 in a sec, then it waits for ~ 30 sec09:49
nashantAlright guys. Anyone know if there's a plan to release a live usb image that actually supports uefi without any tinkering and without having to boot a live usb and chroot after installing?09:50
DJonessuperdo: That sounds like the system is reading the first part of the file into memory and filling up the write buffer, then because writing is slower to usb, it has to pause as the buffer starts writing before it can continue09:50
superdoplus, after a file is copied, console text is: Stalled09:50
Jordan_Unashant: The current 12.10 images should do that, provided that you dd them to the USB drive rather than using Unetbootin or similar tools.09:51
superdoDJones, is it a normal behaviour?09:51
nashantJordan_U: oh. So impossible from windows then09:51
DJonessuperdo: I get the same thing with nautilus when copying large files to usb09:51
Jordan_Unashant: No, there is dd for Windows, as well as other image writers (though I haven't personally used any).09:52
nevynnashant: ubootin works for that..09:52
nashantnevyn: I beg to differ. Been trying that. It also has an issue where it copies deb and udeb files across with the wrong names09:53
nevynnashant: I used universal usb installer and installed a uefi system with it.09:53
nevynnashant: ie: I lie.09:53
superdook thanks all, I accept it, and wait :)09:53
DJonessuperdo: I doubt its anything to worry about09:54
nevynsuperdo: heavy IO should not make the system unresponsive.. unless it's absolutely ancient.09:54
Jordan_Unashant: To be clear, I don't know to what extent various liveUSB tools work WRT Ubuntu and UEFI, but I do know that dd works.09:54
nevynlike pentium II ancient..09:54
superdonevyn, i used "frozen" incorrectly09:54
nevyn console text is: Stalled ...09:54

PotatoI've already set a root password, but how do I enable root user login?13:06
ubottuCommon Sense: Just because you can, does not mean you should (and especially recommend to others). Think before you do. "Works for me" does not mean it is ok. The latest version of everything is not always useful if you aim for stability. Please see http://geekosophical.net/random/worksforme/13:07
tom_you can't ,it fobid user login as root from recently version13:07
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo13:07

prappl93I have a quick question. I'm putting the pre-release of Raring Ringtail on my computer, and I haven't used the pre-releases before, but when the full release comes out it should be easy to upgrade to that, right?13:34
betraydthen google for linux and that cam model13:34
betraydPotato: ^13:34
theadminprappl93: Yes, just update all the packages.13:34
Dr_willisprappl93,  yes. thats a feature of the pacjkage manager system13:34
Potatobetrayd: It does regonize the camera, it's mount on /video0.13:34
Dr_willisprappl93,  update the day BEFOR the release... then hang on for a week after the release befor you update again. ;) the servers may be dog slow for a few days after release13:35
betraydgood, once the kinks are ironed out in the driver, you should be able to capture video Potato13:35

Dr_willisprappl93,  i havent really noticed any major changes to get used to.13:35
Dr_willisjust lots of little polish and tweaks13:36
prappl93Thanks for the quickness in response, guys. Haven't used pre-release before, and I was hoping that it would be easy to go from that straight to full.13:36

chunkyheadhow to backup all my successfully installed packages on ubuntu?13:37
Dr_willisit can always get delayed.. but i think it was the 25th13:37
prappl93That's what I heard too, just wondering if they have said for sure yet.13:37
Dr_willischunkyhead,  you can get a list of whats installed..but theres not really an easy way to convert the  installed stuff back to .deb packages with out redownloading them all13:37
ubottuTo 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 !automate13:37

jribbenjick: you should say what you did to get that erro13:40
crash_cyDr_willis it is shutting itself off, but varies a bit on how long before it does13:40
Dr_willischunkyhead,  this is why the service 'apt-cacher-ng' is often used  to cache things for the whole lan13:40
crash_cyGenerally I make it to the desktop but can't really open anything from there before it has shut down13:40
benjickjrib: I installed apache2, suphp and php5-cgi. I uploaded a website and tried to visit it. I got that error in the logs.13:40
Dr_willischunkyhead,  you got stuff in your apt cache. but it wont be EVERYTHING. and it can also be outdated by the time you reinstall the other system.13:41
NygerHi - I'm trying to install php 5.3.4+ on my ubuntu virtual server and have troubles with aptitude. Someone willing to help?13:41
Dr_williscrash_cy,  start with the basics and give the fans a good dusting out, make sure they are working.. then see if text mode works.. and if its stable in text mode.13:41
chunkyheadi am going to reinstall ubuntu alot of issues with unity after i installed cairo dock. so basically i need to get all the packages back. won't be able to cache them over lan Dr_willis13:42
Dr_williscrash_cy,  then monitor the heat of the system if its iverheating13:42
jribbenjick: you should give a lot more details.  Basically make it so someone else could recreate what you did.13:42
Dr_willischunkyhead,  thats odd. I have no issues with Cairo Dock alongside unity.13:42
NygerI found this KB article, but I don't have add-apt-repository on my instance installed somehow13:42
crash_cyDr_willis, will do.  Does Ubuntu have a way of monitoring heat built in, or do I need to find an app for that?13:43
Dr_willischunkyhead,  if they are not in the cache they will get auto-downloaded as needed. you dont really  install an app.. remove its deb.. then somehow rebuild the deb from the system.. (seen that done on android, but not linux)13:43
benjickIt's a brand new install, that's all I did, I'm not really sure what to expand on. But I saw now I didn't do an upgrade, so I'll try that and come back13:43

chunkyheadDr_willis, i had removed cairo but now it's messed up unity. i can't login unity 3d, i've to login cairo (which i had removed idk how it's still there, yes i removed --purge d it) and unity --reset and wait for ages to unity to reset itself13:45
Dr_willischunkyhead,  try making a new user. see if they have the same issue.. if they DONT have the same issue. then its a user setting issue, not a system issue.13:46
chunkyheadsame issue there Dr_willis can't see unity interface there. tried that13:47
Dr_willisthers a lot of issues where the 3d drivers get confused/unity/compiz get confused and unity only half loads..13:47
Dr_willisnever really seen a definitive fix, or answer as to why it does it13:47
chunkyheadit isn't showing unity interface where i can login in it13:47
chunkyhead^ Dr_willis13:48
NygerPici: thanks a lot, that worked.13:48
Dr_willischunkyhead,  you mean the Lightdm login screen? thats the login screen.13:49
chunkyheadyeah, when we click on the icon top right of the login box, we can choose the interface there, right? unity isn't listed there only cairo is idk how or hwy13:49
theadminchunkyhead: Log in to a virtual terminal (Ctrl-Alt-F2) and do "sudo apt-get --reinstall install ubuntu-desktop", which shall get you the default Ubuntu system packages (nothing will be removed, though)13:50
Dr_willischunkyhead,  lightdm has a icon just to the right of the login name field. If Unity is missing from there, You may want to reinstall the 'ubuntu-desktop' package13:51
chunkyheadtheadmin, let me give that  a try, just asking i'd installed dolphin, and other explorers you had recommened and had later on removed them and reinstalled nautius back on. can this make any difference?13:51
chunkyheadDr_willis, ^13:52
theadminchunkyhead: Hm, dunno honestly, doubt it.13:52
Dr_willisi rarely remove anything.. i dont see the point in it.. unless you are short of hd space13:52
chunkyheadthought so13:52
chunkyheadDr_willis, yeah like i said earlier have bit of an OCD13:52
Dr_willisI got kubuntu-desktop, lubuntu-desktop and ubuntu-desktop all installed on the system13:52
Dr_willistime to learn to get over it...13:52
chunkyheadDr_willis, but then too many application slow down the computer. :\13:53
Dr_willischunkyhead,  no... to many apps RUNNING at the same time will use more cpu...13:53
Dr_willismany apps Installed.. take up HD space.13:53
Botreakcan anybody help me with wifi adapter usb?13:53
chunkyheadmore HD space, more data access time :\ Dr_willis13:54

Dr_willischunkyhead,  not really..13:54
chunkyheadtheadmin, Dr_willis i am a computer engineer. i know :|13:54
theadminchunkyhead: UNIX filesystems hardly fragment -- that'd be the case with Windows, yeah, because NTFS is such NTFS13:55
Botreaki agree with chucky13:55

Dr_willisif its loading unity desktop.. it dosent matter if you got kde installed or not.. its still just loading unity stuff13:55
BluesKajHi all13:56
DrGrovDoes anyone know how to help me to restore my xorg.conf to a standard default one? I can not still boot into 12.04, it just says it can not show the screen.13:57
chunkyheadback, ok tell me if your disk is 500GB you fresh format it and then install an OS and then you don't install any packages on it for abt say 1 year, over that period of time you end up storing alot of data on it and your HD is almost full. will your PC run as smooth as it used to when it was first installed?13:57
Dr_willisDrGrov,  by default there is no xorg.conf - X auto configures these days13:57
Dr_willischunkyhead,  on ubuntu/linux - yes.13:57
chunkyheadDr_willis, in my experience no. :\13:58
DrGrovDr_willis: Yes, I know. I stumbled upon a serious issue today. It did not show me any signal from my TV and I did not intentionally at least do any changes to Xorg.conf. I have to have Xorg.conf in order to get my TV screen running at 1920x1080 and not just 1360x768.13:58
Dr_willisif your OS is using 20gb.. and you put on 80gb of video files.. on a 100gb hd.. it will still be the same13:58
Dr_willischunkyhead,  in my experience - it is the same..13:58
chunkyheadidk then..13:59
Dr_williswith your logic.. a 10gb installed os - would run slower on a 15gb hd... then a 10000gb hd.. just because of the HD size..13:59
Dr_willisof course if you want best speeds..  get a SSD these days. ;)14:00
Dr_willisthen a lot of the rules change14:00
Coldfire202I need help when I get home.14:00
chunkyheadno no Dr_willis not that. over a period of time the disk gets fragmented. think of a linked list first node is stored at data loc 100 other at 10000 other at 10 hence it takes time for the head to reach those cells hence the difference in speed14:00
yoojinpExcuse me, would somebody like to perform xrdb -query -all to let me see what a 'normal' output looks like?14:01
chunkyheadon the other hand when you fresh install everything is pretty much together and hence fastest14:01
Dr_willischunkyhead,  ive never had an issue with ext2/3/4 fragmenting14:01
icerootchunkyhead: fragmenation is a problem for fat and ntfs but not ext14:01
Dr_willisand if the os files dont change/move - then they wont get fragmented in the first place.14:01
chunkyheadnot the OS files lol. i said data Dr_willis14:01
Dr_willisthere are ext2/3/4 defragmenting tools.. but ive never used them14:01
DrGrovDr_willis: Should I post my xorg.conf just in case?14:01
icerootDr_willis: there are virusscanners for GNu/Linux-Desktops too. its useful like the fragmentation tools14:02
Dr_willisYou said the OS would get slower.. why would it slow down if unread data/video files are fragmented or not?14:02
chunkyheadmy bad. OS as in the response time to access a location would increase, slow in that sense14:02
Dr_willisif you are that worried about it all.. run one of those defragment tools and  se eif it helps14:03
chunkyheadthat takes a lot of time on a disk with memory in TBs :|14:03
yoojinpDr_willis: I suppose distance from the two farthest points on the drive, filewise. Physically a millisecond or so? xD14:03
icerootchunkyhead: have a look what ext2/3/4 is and how it is managing the data then you will see that fragmentation is not an issue for that filesystems14:03
theadminGuys, this has *nothing* to do with Ubuntu, please get back on topic14:03
chunkyheadiceroot, Dr_willis ok i can't comment much on ext fs coz i am not used it extensively nor do i know how it stores14:03
chunkyheadprobably you're right then14:03
Dr_willisi belive most everyone in this channel has never needed to defragment their ubuntu boxs ;)14:04
wilee-nileecough fsck14:04
chunkyheadi hope you're right Dr_willis :)14:04
yoojinpActually, I really need to know what the normal output of xrdb -query -all looks like. I ran xrdb to update the configuration without opting to append. Instead the files were deleted.14:04
yoojinpContents* were deleted.14:04
theadminwilee-nilee: That's not defragmentation, that's checking for FS damage14:04
Dr_willisDrGrov,  you could try just move/renameing the xorg.conf and see if not having one helps14:05
chunkyheadbut afaik (from what i have experienced) ubuntu has become slow for me. bootup time was <10 initially now it takes more than 30secs, but i am guessing that's due to the loads of apps i install everyday hence i feel the need to remove them too :\14:05
DrGrovDr_willis: Okay, I could do that. I just wonder why it did work last night at 1920x1080. Probably some minor issue after all :)14:05
Dr_willisi dont really worry about 30 sec boot times.. when i got 30+day uptimes.14:05
theadminchunkyhead: If apps are daemons, that could be the reason, other than that...14:05
chunkyheadand it's been more than 1hr since unity --reset was started, still hasn't finished my tty isn't free so i can install unity desktop :| theadmin Dr_willis14:06
theadminchunkyhead: Ctrl-C or use another tty14:06

YonnyI have 2 hard disks, one Ubuntu on each one (10.04 + 12.04), and after installing the new Pangolin, the machine keeps booting through grub of the old ubuntu (10.04). I can see all the "new, correct" entries in the new grub.cfg on the Pangolin partition , though, can I just copy them over and add them to the old-still-active grub.cfg, that is actually the one loading right now, and then have that one start the desired OS? (I would rather not have to change anyth14:15
Yonnying in the bios/boot order, in case sda suddenly becomes sdb, which makes problems with mount points etc. in the old Ubuntu, which I will need for a while yet)14:15
DrGrovDr_willis: How would I get rid of Xorg.conf completely then and skip using them completely?14:15
jribYonny: the 10.04 grub will find your 12.04 install if you run update-grub14:16
Yonnyjrib: but then I have to start that old ubuntu, and right now, a couple of the sdx-numbers have changed, so I rather not start the old ubuntu  before I have all those pointers correct in both the boot loader and in for example FStab...14:17
Fuzzleshow come i cant get my graphics driver from additional drivers anymore?14:17
jribYonny: you should be using UUIDs anyway, not sdX14:17
chunkyheadi desperately need to remove cairo dock guys. really getting on my nerves. any ideas?14:18
icerootFuzzles: which ubuntu version?14:18
Yonnyjrib: I just want to get "safely" into the new Pangolin install, and continue fixing this from there...14:18
wilee-nileeYonny, Which ubuntu do you want to control the grub menu?14:18
jribYonny: so run update-grub on 10.0414:18
Fuzzlesiceroot, well was 12.04 which it used to show before i reinstalled now im on 13.0414:18

Yonnywilee-nilee: the new Pangolin one, the one I want to try to get into (first) now14:19
Fuzzlesiceroot, it happened in 12.04 as well14:19
wilee-nileeYonny, You just need the pangolin HD first in the bios and its grub in its mbr.14:19
wilee-nileeYonny, AS of now when you boot which OS is at the top of the grub menu?14:20
Yonnywilee-nilee: so I would like to put that Pangolin at the top of the other grub menu that it booting at the moment, just as a workaround... I think I can massage the entry into there according to the old grub syntax (the two grub.cfg files are very different between 10.04 and 12.04)14:20
jribYonny: either run update-grub on 10.04 or change the boot order (which you said you didn't want to do) :/14:21
wilee-nileeYonny, This is grub 2 it will automatically ad other OS's, so you just install the 12.04 grub boot to its mbr, it is probably already there and have it be read first in the bios.14:22
Yonnywilee-nilee: I know I can change the boot order in bios, but I am afraid then the sda/sdb also changes, which will give me problems later when I want to boot the old ubuntu which depends on the old order..., not sure if it is a good thing to keep changing that back and forth, as I see several comments about "unpredictable results"/orders regarding sda/sdb, etc...14:22
wilee-nileeYonny, They will not change, that makes no sense.14:22
jribYonny: like I said, you should be using UUIDs unless you've done something strange14:23
Yonnywilee-nilee: ok, so you are saying that if I alter the boot order in the BIOS, the old ubuntu will continue to see the same disk as sda afterwards? (then it is ok...)14:23
BluesKajYonny, stop objecting and listen advice that is known to work14:23

RishabhTatirajuCan anybody help me here with an internet problem?14:25
Yonnyjrib: yes, I know I should use UUID in fstab, but when I added some lines there a while ago, I could not figure out the correct syntax or where exactly to put that statement (specific order on each line, before or after some other "none"/"1"/"0" args, etc., so I ended up with the sdx-thingy, which I know is vulnerable...14:26
wilee-nileeRishabhTatiraju, Just state your problem if someone knows they will answer, give details. ;)14:26
chunkyheadis gnome 3.8 out for ubuntu yet?14:27
YonnyBluesKaj: well, I need to finish asking the questions before I am sure, then I will take the advices. It seems that you are sure you know everything relevant in my setup so you simply cannot be at risk of giving wrong advice based on assumptions that is not true on my machine?14:27
Yonnywilee-nilee: if I post one of the lines I have in my fstab, can you provide the correct way of doing that with UUID? Maybe that is the easiest way.14:29
RishabhTatirajuOkay well i cannot access certain websites which i could access in Windows. I am running Ubuntu 12.10. I have even tried changing DNS servers but that does not help.14:29
wilee-nileeYonny, The problem here is your not understanding some basic information and having theories based on user errors, that are faulty.14:29

wilee-nileeuvala, I don't know and the web is your best way of finding out not this channel. https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&biw=&bih=&q=user+survey+software+ubuntu&btnG=Google+Search&gbv=114:32

Yonnywilee-nilee: here is one of the lines in my FStab, which I am afraid I will not be able to change into the proper UUID syntax:14:33
Yonny/dev/sda6       /media/SOFTARCH   ntfs       joe,jill,admin214:33

bananapieok, so I am running freeswitch 1.2.7 comiled on debian 6. When it receives a re-INVITE for t38, it passes it to sofia "2013-04-23 10:33:20.246850 [DEBUG] sofia.c:5597 Channel sofia/external/4188002815 entering state [received][100]14:36

RishabhTatirajuEven this does not work:
HonksuHi! I have a bit of a problem on ubuntu server 12.04.2 64bit with a ext4 partition containing root filesystem. I have about 49Gb used space and no idea what is consuming it. I have output of commands "df -h" and "sudo du -h --max-depth=1 /" and here is the output: http://pastebin.com/jWkKaZKP14:36
RishabhTatirajuThat worked yesterday, so it may be a server problem14:36
BluesKajRishabhTatiraju, might have something to do with your location, maybe eqiufax canada won't load pages fro queries from india14:36
jribYonny: those seem like strange entries in the options field but I may just not be familiar with ntfs options.  To use UUID, just find the uuid (see ubottu) and then change "/dev/sda6" to "UUID=uuid_you_found_here"14:36
chunkyheadis the squid package there in deb too?14:36
jrib!uuid | Yonny14:36
ubottuYonny: To see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)14:36
Yonnyjrib: I see from other lines in FStab that there are specific args like "none", "0", etc. , which I have no clue if is relevant IF I use UUID instead of sdx, so I decided not to go that way until I have learned how that syntax should be done.14:36
jrib!fstab | Yonny14:36
ubottuYonny: The /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions14:36

beanRishabhTatiraju: can you recap your problem?14:42
beanI just started reading14:42
uvalawilee-nilee, your link refers almost only to ubuntu user surveys on the first two pages of search results, and no free software for user surveys.14:42
RishabhTatirajubean: I am unable to access webpages in my Ubuntu, they seem to work everywhere else. I just switched from Windows and they worked fine for me.14:42
beanRishabhTatiraju: any sites? or just some?14:43
Yonnya question about the SWAP too: When I installed, I created a swap partition for the new Pangolin, but did nothing with the existing swap partition on the other drive, which was already marked as swap. So now the new Pangolin lists 2 active swap partitions in its FStab. The other one is only for the older ubuntu version, so I will just remove those lines from FStab. Should I have changed the other swap to be "do not use" or whatever it lets me during installatio14:43
Yonnyn? Would that not disable it for the other Ubuntu after the installation? (I am unclear as what happens to the exsting swap when choosing "do not use"; will it be affected/altered/changed, or left untouched and simply not used ?)14:43
RishabhTatirajubean: just a few14:43

ActionParsnipVivekananda: clear your browser cache14:59

craigbass1976GoDaddy allows ssh, and I sshfs so that I can just mount up the remote directory on my box here.  It always times out quickly though.  Is there a way (on the client side--I doubt GoDaddy would make the simple server change for me) to keep this connection alive if I get up to go to the bathroom or something?  I have to shut all my files, remount, and open them again15:10
YonnyActionParsnip: ok, so If I want to add themes, I should look for Cinnamon themes? Any other things I need to install first to get them working? I notice there is no "add themes" in the Appearance, so I am not sure what I need to be able to get a "add" and "modify" function like the one I saw in Mint. Just to change some basic stuff like move the closing buttons to the right side, etc.15:12
craigbass1976Or maybe... Can I do something to my godaddy user account (the linux account) that will keep connections alive longer, or is that a system wide thing?15:14

nugroholatest desktop or laptop work well with ubuntu linux15:18
HonksuI have a problem with a ext4 partition containing root filesystem. I have no idea what is consuming about 49Gb of disk space. I have output of commands "df -h" and "sudo du -h --max-depth=1 /" here: http://pastebin.com/jWkKaZKP15:19
beanYonny: I'd imagine that only the default is supported.15:20
=== franz_ is now known as fpoesc
Yonnybean: so what are all the people in here using, only the default theme?15:21
beanYonny: I would imagine so15:21
beanI use no interface and shell only15:21
Whiskey`WonkaHonksu: why do you feel 49G is being erroniously use?15:21
Yonnybean: that sounds incredible, I thought we all want to be able to use the "P" in "PC" for "Personalization", which the theme functions are all about, not just change the background image...15:22
Whiskey`Wonkaerroneously* too arg15:22
beanYonny: the P in PC stands for "personal" not "personalization"15:23
VivekanandaActionParsnip: Can I also move the .local to another partition and symlink it ?15:23
Yonnybean: yes, "Personal Computer", that is what I am pointing to: to make it personal(ized)15:23
nugrohoubuntu linux with great desktop outlook better than redhat or fedora15:23
Whiskey`WonkaYonny: ive changed my some, been trying ot figure out how to disable the stupid alpha background on a per item basis, no luck so far15:23
HonksuWhiskey`Wonka: df -h prints that 92Gb is used but sum printed by du is only about 43Gb on root filesystem.15:24
heresome apps work , but attempting to install https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/xnviewmp/ in 12.10 fails not found ... ?15:24
Whiskey`WonkaYonny: personal does not imply personalizing15:24
Whiskey`Wonkahmm, does df double count symlinks?15:25
YonnyI was using the term slightly creatively, to point out that the P should mean something into this direction, not important.15:25
beanI do not think so.15:25
Whiskey`WonkaYonny: well, it IS important15:26
nugrohoubuntu linux console with direct keyboard into monitor or lcd looks better than solaris operating system15:26
Whiskey`Wonkawords have meaning, if you go randomly changing them then communication bcms 4 teh brds15:26
Whiskey`Wonkanugroho: so?15:26
Yonnywell, Personal is important, yes: that I get the computer to look and feel like I would like it, so yes, important, but this discussion about which word to use is not important.15:27
nugrohofaster ubuntu I think unsure with solaris15:27
Whiskey`Wonkawhat is the linux equal to 'file use + size on hdd' ?15:27
Whiskey`WonkaYonny: well then just build yourself a new theme and be happy15:28
Vivekanandaanyone else ?15:28
Whiskey`WonkaYonny: there are plenty of them out there, google will find many of them15:28
gigasHonksu, do you have access to a GUI? try the disk usage analyzer client to pin down your disk usage15:28
Whiskey`WonkaVivekananda: i missed it, what ?15:29
Yonnyyes, that is my question: which theme "platform" is supported here in this forum, which do you recommend to start focusing on the theme part? I like gnome, so I would like to continue somewhere along that part, and what is that software component called now in Precise Pangolin, if I should look for what to install in the software repositories?15:29
nugrohoubuntu console command start with startx to see a live or life in GUI work wonderfull15:29
Vivekanandaooo I have a small /home in lubuntu 12.04  of 4.5 gb. in it .local is 900 mb and .cache and .m2(for maven and stuff) is 1 gb. Can I move these directories to another partition and just symlink it to home ?15:30
VivekanandaI mean is it advisable to do this. I already cleared the cache as ActionParsnip suggested but that just freed up 200 mbs of space15:31
betraydVivekananda: i did the same when Music got too big15:32
beanVivekananda: sure, you could do that15:32

felonwell today is tuesday :)15:45
SonikkuAmericafelon: So at this point I'll strongly recommend an upgrade to 12.04 LTS.15:46
litropyIsn't there a GRUB menu entry with different graphics modes, like VESA?15:46
SonikkuAmericafelon: Before I help you with this.15:46
felonfunny thing is i upgraded 12.04 and same problems15:46
SonikkuAmericafelon: You're on 12.04 now? You said 10.04 earlier...15:46
litropyfelon, full upgrade, including kernel?15:46
feloni tried to get my monitor working by upgrading thro ubuntu updates last week, but didnt work.15:47

litropyMore graphics issues. Wow.15:48

feloni guess15:48
litropyJeena_, how many monitors do you have set up?15:49
felonshouldnt have to15:49
chunkyheadJeena_, download screencloud and see if the same thing happens there, in addition to what SonikkuAmerica is saying15:49
Jeena_I think I installed one during my tests and it made Unity kind of usable15:49
Jeena_(before it took 3-7 seconds to open after hitting the super key)15:49
SonikkuAmericafelon: Once you burn a 12.04 live image, boot from it (you know how), press F6, and select "nomodeset" from the menu.15:49
Jeena_I have 2 monitors15:49
litropyJeena_, I'd try turning your secondary off and see if that does the trick, just to rule out confusion there.15:50
felonbut id like to get it working now15:50
SonikkuAmericafelon: I have an idea. Does your monitor have an onboard picture control?15:51
felon01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV44A [GeForce 6200] (rev a1)15:52

raven_evil_and1, one minihdmi and two dvi connections16:00
evil_and1raven_, it's probably only able to drive 2 of those simultaneously. Regardless of the OS16:00
litropyjbdubbs, and you see your NIC when you ipconfig?16:01

raven_evil_and1, whats the secret of every graphics card is only able to handle 2 displays at once?16:01
litropyjbdubbs, and in that case, is your browser set to a proxy?16:01
SonikkuAmericafelon: Use nvidia-173; if that doesn't work, use nvidia-96.16:01
evil_and1I think it's just because it's cheaper that way16:02

Dr_willisYASHH,  theres some 3rd party packages you can install on ubuntu to get a chrome-os session. they should be mentioned on the omgubuntu! or webupd8 blog sites.17:20

betraydDrGrov: but the nvidi current would still be there at reboot won't it17:21
DrGrovbetrayd: I am not using nvidia-current, I am using nouveau.17:21
betraydno when you reboot i mean DrGrov17:22
moppersYASHH, google chrome OS has some extra secret sauce n top of chromium OS. to get the goog version download the recovery script for a chromebook17:22

betraydah isee17:23
DrGrovCould someone please tell me how to reset my X server so I can finally get a *working* resolution without needing to mess around trying to find a xorg.conf setup or such?17:24
YASHHmoppers, is that legal or thats how it works?17:24
betraydDrGrov: there is no 'reset' unless you're talking about reinstall17:26
aneksYASHH, what version of ubuntu are you running?17:26
YASHHaneks, 12.0417:26
litropyDrGrov, If you've got to a blank screen while booting up, press CTRL + ALT + F1 to access the terminal. Then, sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop Then, sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup Then, sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg Then, sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start17:27
litropy"Then," is not part of the commands.17:27
aneksYASHH, I'm running google chrome on 12.10, not chromium, I hope this link helps http://linuxg.net/how-to-install-google-chrome-on-ubuntu-12-04-ubuntu-12-10-linux-mint-13-linux-mint-14-or-debian-sid/17:27
YASHHthanks aneks i'll check it out17:28
aneksnp :)17:28
aneksoff to sleep17:28
YASHHaneks, is it better than ubuntu and does it support .exe directly??17:29
litropyYASHH, moppers and aneks are talking about two different things. Google Chrome is a web browser; Chrome OS is an Operating System like Ubuntu or Windows.17:30
YASHHoh!, i already have browser iam askin about OS17:31
YASHHsorry for the confusion guys!!17:31
betraydDrGrov: what litropy said, but add your high resolution (right there), idk if you have to go through some 'custom' or see how high it can go17:31
DJonesYASHH: This channel only supports Ubuntu and its official variants, you'll need to find a Chrome OS channel yourself17:32
DrGrovbetrayd: I know what my highest is and it still does not allow it. I made it what it was on the live 11.04 CD, 1360x768 but no luck. Still does not display anything.17:33
DrGrovSo a reinstall of X server would be the best thing. yes?17:33
betraydDrGrov: he asking to do a reconfigure17:33
betraydDrGrov: a sudo dpkg-reconfigure17:33
DrGrovlitropy: The problem is that I can not press CTRL + ALT + F1 when I booted up. The screen is still just blank and does not give me any choice but to reboot.17:34
YASHHhow much of bytes does this xchat take (approximately)??17:34
DrGrovlitropy: So I can use that tutorial you kindly posted for me anyhow even if I do not get into a tty? I just get into recovery mode.17:35
litropyDrGrov, Try CTRL+ALT+F3 ... somehow, I've had instances wherein F1 didn't bring something up. Also, you may be using a keyboard that requires you to also press your Fn button to get the true Function keystroke to be communicated. Fn is usually to the left of your left CTRL key.17:36
litropyDrGrov, yes. If you can gain access to a terminal, you can skip that step.17:37
mzazaHow can I test graphics card frames per second?17:38
litropyDrGrov, Just a personal note: I can tell you that 1.5 years ago when I connected my Ubuntu box to my HDTV, I had to manually modify xorg.conf, and I wouldn't have done it without the help of the peeps in channel #xorg.17:38
litropyDrGrov, although it might have gotten easier.17:39
mzazaIs there an application which I could install to test video card frames/second?17:40
MonkeyDustmzaza  phoronix publishes such benchmarks, take a look there, how they do it17:41
ActionParsnipMzaza: tuxcart etc can show fps17:41
ActionParsnipMzaza: super tux can too17:41
ActionParsnipFun games too :-)17:42
mzazaActionParsnip: MonkeyDust I found glxspheres also, thanks :)17:42
ActionParsnipLooks trippy17:44
DrGrovlitropy: Okay, I will do it from recovery mode and a terminal from there.17:44
DrGrovCTRL+ALT+F3 did not either work. Unfortunately.17:44
DrGrovlitropy: Okay, I have had it right all along. I have the right xorg.conf modelines and xorg.conf safe as a backup.17:45
DrGrovlitropy: I will join in on #xorg then after I first get some kind of resolution ;) Thanks. What was the command again? sudo dpkg... ?17:46
litropyDrGrov, sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg17:46
DrGrovlitropy: Thanks, I will do that now and see what gives.17:46
gatoxhi..... i'm having problems with several raring images..... i've created a startup usb..... and i've try lot of combinations, using live cd, direct install, and choosing different options in the installer wizard...... but the installer GETS STUCK always in the second screen.... in the Wireless part..... does anyone know this issue?17:46

DrGrovHi again.17:47
justdreami have no d/e... i'm trying to format this hard drive to ext4 but am more familiar with gparted? how would i go about doing it from a shell?17:47
theadmingatox: What ubottu said. Raring isn't a supported release yet.17:47
theadminjustdream: sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda117:48
theadminjustdream: To create partitions you can use parted or fdisk17:48
litropytheadmin, he's referring you to the channel #ubuntu+1, where the support for Raring is.17:48
DrGrovDid not work out, I apparently do not have xserver-xorg installed. Something else configures it?17:48
DrGrovlitropy: What you think? I have to install xserver-xorg or reconfigure some other way?17:48
DrGrovIIRC it uninstalled xserver-xorg due to nouveau... Not sure though...17:49
justdreamtheadmin: the harddrive appears to be corrupt i'm hoping that once i format it i will be able to install linux onto it from a live cd / usb17:49
justdreamif it'll even format17:49
justdreamthe computer always gets angry and hangs up when ever you try to mount the HD17:49
litropyDrGrov, Hm. Ya, I'd install the package. Not sure what's driving your display right now and there might be conflicts, but I think I'd try it anyway.17:49
theadminjustdream: Oh. You can wipe the whole thing then: sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda # Warning! Make sure "sda" is really your hard drive. Disconnect all other storage devices if unsure17:49
DrGrovlitropy: Okay, will install it. Brb.17:50
litropyDrGrov, who knows - it might solve all your problems.17:50

bartzytheadmin: when I do aptitude install , just like that without arguments - I get many packages to be installed. I don't want them to be installed, and I don't know what was causing that.17:57
bartzyso I just want to "start clean".17:57
litropyDrGrov, so you're done?17:57
theadminbartzy: "install" without arguments for aptitude means, literally, install everything17:57
sporkeeebartzy, aptitude is deprecated you should not be using it.17:58
theadminbartzy: Not a good idea.17:58
MonkeyDustbartzy  use apt-get, not aptitude17:58

newlinuxusrlove u alll ubuntu users <317:58
theadminbartzy: Also, Aptitude is broken on 64-bit17:58

newlinuxusr13.04 will kick the hell outa windoze 817:58
MonkeyDust!aptitude | bartzy17:59
ubottubartzy: aptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. You may encounter problems on multiarch installs (11.10 and higher) as aptitude cannot currently handle the same package with different architectures being installed at the same time. See http://pad.lv/831768 for more information.17:59
theadminbartzy: That's because apt-get and aptitude are entirely different programs -- apt-get usually works better.17:59
sporkeeebartzy, aptitude is not up on the arch stuff, you are asking for trouble basically.17:59
theadminbartzy: They also have different syntax and commands have different meanings.17:59
theadminkorisnik: Ah, sorry, no idea about that problem.17:59
lotuspsychjenewlinuxusr: you surely can discuss this in #ubuntu-offtopic17:59
korisniktheadmin:  ok np17:59
bartzyok... but why 'aptitude install' gives me stuff to install, while 'apt-get install' does not ?17:59
bartzyalso - I'm trying to install phpunit - and it wants to install apache with it. I don't understand why - since apache is not a dependency for phpunit, and I do have php5-cli installed.18:00
theadminbartzy: Well, again, for aptitude, install without arguments means "install everything". For apt-get, install without arguments isn't even valid.18:00
bartzytheadmin: No, aptitude install without arguments mean - finish off your unfinished installations.18:00
sporkeeebartzy, bad apps will do bad things, just because a deprecated app that does not read correclty offres you updates is a bad arguement.18:01
theadminbartzy: Hm. Then I suppose this is an issue with 64-bit (Aptitude is broken on 64-bit)18:01
litropyDrGrov, glad to hear it. X.Org tweaking is horrible; most users tweak it and forget it like a traumatic life experience. But those few people who deal with it regularly for whatever reason: job requirement, etc, are in #xorg.18:01
theadminbartzy: Forgeet it and use apt-get -- will be better for you.18:01
bartzytheadmin: OK, what about my phpunit question ?18:01
lotuspsychjetheadmin: i got 64-bit here, working fine here18:01
theadminlotuspsychje: Which Ubuntu version?18:02
lotuspsychjetheadmin: 12.1018:02
DrGrovlitropy: Apparently I did not find anyone yet since the first idea I got was to install the nvidia drivers LOL :)18:02
theadminbartzy: Hm... I can't see apache2 in phpunit's dependencies on 12.04, this is odd18:02
theadminlotuspsychje: Means you never tried installing 32-bit packages, eh?18:02
theadminlotuspsychje: That's when breakage arrives18:02
bartzytheadmin, 12.10.18:02
DrGrovlitropy: And now I can use "Displays" from my xorg.conf information to vary my resolution. It is good, very good indeed. But one thing though, how can I see if my monitor does go over 60Hz at 1360x768?18:03
bartzytheadmin: And I don't see anywhere that aptitude is deprecated, actually it is the official installer that is used for debian installations.18:03
bartzyi.e. the debian net installer uses aptitude and not apt-get.18:03
lotuspsychjetheadmin: ah no i did not18:03
theadminbartzy: Debian isn't multiarch yet18:03
theadminbartzy: Ubuntu is18:03
justdreambartzy: are synaptic and aptitude the same thing? just curious...18:03
theadminjustdream: Nay, Synaptic uses apt-get as a backend18:04
litropybartzy, using aptitude isn't recommended by many anymore -- something about aptitude contributors dropping the ball in keeping things up to date. apt-get will do everything you need.18:04
sporkeeebartzy, Kinda hard headed now aren't you. ;)18:04
justdreamtheadmin: i see, so is just a gui for apt-get?18:04

ThePendulumEven though 13.04 is still in beta as we speak, I don't see it getting polished before the 25th. I'm going to skip this one.19:15
wilee-nileeThePendulum, strange gksudo should be working, until release you want the #ubuntu+1 channel in general. ;)19:16
ThePendulumwilee-nilee: Yeah, I know, just stating that I'm running 13.04 to clarify that19:16

But on the welcome screen it says the password is wrong. I went into recovery mode to change the password but it said password unchanged, which makes me believe my password was correct to begin with.19:19
pyroscopeBlazeFaia_:  take note of caps lock and keyboard layout settings19:20
pyroscopethat's the usual causes19:20
wilee-nileeBlazeFaia_, With a fresh install I would check the sum of the install media and reinstall, if not a cap problem.19:21

BlazeFaia_Capslock is off, as was when I made the password. Where do I check the keyboard layout? Top right of the screen? The only available option is en.19:21
pyroscopejjpintor:  step 1: have mor ethan one workspace19:21

pyroscopetheadmin:  i just did, on my unity19:25
chudlerI am aware it was rejected. I am asking if development proceeded as suggested there19:25
theadminpyroscope: "I'm closing this merge request because the daemon doesn't know about what the sessions are doing and it is their responsibility to clean up.". Meaning no, it was rejected and everything is like it was before?19:26
jjpintortheadmin, pyroscope did it on his pc19:26
theadminjjpintor, pyroscope: Well, then you two figure out how to do it19:27

jjpintorpyroscope, how to have multiple workspace?19:28
pyroscopethat way → https://pastee.org/k8h7d19:28
theadminchudler: Well, I'm just judging from the link... That's about all anyone can say, right? As far as I know, dbus isn't stopped if lightdm is shut down or the session quits19:28
theadminchudler: Mainly because Upstart itself relies on dbus nowadays so...19:29
chudlermaybe you don't know about dbus --autostart, or generally what they're referring to? Anyway, I guess it wasn't moved into the greeter as I couldnt find it. I hoped someone here might have a clue about that19:30
pyroscopejjpintor:  you have one workspace. one. 1. cannot switch with one.19:30
chudleralternatively, you're saying lightdm spawns the session dbus before the greeter *nowadays*19:31

thrillERboychristoff522: That is what I'm going to try, I think a trick like that, may come in handy some day :)19:48
christoff522if you're using ubuntu it will be pretty straight forward just clikc "use as /home" and make sure where it says format it says no19:48
LoshkithrillERboy: just be sure that you don't accidentally reformat your existing home partition..19:49
christoff522im now on debian wheezy and this is the same home folder the lmde, through to linux mint 14, then 13, then lmde again19:49
christoff522and now debian19:49
christoff522so its pretty useful19:49
thrillERboyLoshki: So, if the home folder for the username already exists, installer will just remount it, not recreate a fresh one?19:49
thrillERboyLoshki: LOL I'm gonna check like 28 times for that, before clicking next button19:50
john__christoff522> : your a Pi boy19:50
Derpthios is ubuntun BR19:50
john__Well that is bloody wondefull.. So am I19:50
SimonMI've been having a problem19:50
christoff522john_ what does that mean?19:50
SimonMAnd I'm looking for someone to help me....19:50
thrillERboySimonM: what that would be?19:51
john__With what?19:51
SimonMI've been really stupid19:51
christoff522a pi boy19:51
SimonMand tried to dual boot windows 7 and ubuntu19:51
thrillERboySimonM: can't help with that. sorry.19:51
troulouliou_devhi i have permenent micro freeze on my dell M6700 ; is there any diag tool that could find the reason ?19:51
christoff522okay simonM I think I can help19:51
SimonMand now when I start up my pc nothing start up19:51
christoff522okay did you install windows after ubuntu?19:51
=== Kilroy79 is now known as Kilroyy
SimonMI'm now using a live mode usb thingy ubuntu19:51
SimonMwindows was already installed19:52
=== franz__ is now known as fpoesc
christoff522try to reinstall again19:52
christoff522it may just be a glitch19:52
SimonMcould that fix it?19:52
christoff522try reinstalling ubuntu19:52
SimonMbecause when I start up19:52
SimonMjust a grey screen shows19:52
thrillERboySimonM: You see the GRUB menu?19:53
SimonMwell I'll try that :)19:53
john__Believe me anyone who tries a double boot of windows and linux is not stupid. Unless it's on a Pi19:53
LoshkithrillERboy: It's safer to have the installer ignore your existing /home partition completely. It will create a new, empty /home/user, and then you can use the new, empty /home as the mount point for the old /home partition.19:53
SimonMI did it stupid, because I didn't back up...19:53
john__It just aint go enogh RAM19:53
SimonMwell another thing I should mention19:53
SimonMI did the option install along side windows19:54
SimonMbut then I did it on my external hard drive19:54
thrillERboyLoshki: That sounds much better approach. Thanks :)19:54
SimonMso not really along side19:54
christoff522thats definitely the issue19:54
christoff522if you install anything on an external hard drive, you need to take your internal out19:54
christoff522because of the bootloaders19:54
SimonMso reinstalling might fix it?19:54
christoff522well what you need to deal with is your internal hard drive19:55
pyroscopeSimonM:  the usual way is to shrink the windows primary partition using gparted, then install ubuntu into the free space19:55
thrillERboySimonM: Install it on your internal hard drive, it'll fix it19:55
john__Hightway to hell seems cleerly lit. Rock on <christoff522>19:55
SimonMand how do I fix the external hard drive back to normal?19:55
SimonMno data was on it19:55
Adam__How make my own OS based on Ubuntu?19:55
thrillERboySimonM: then just format it19:55
SimonMso that is no problem19:56
christoff522disconnect your internal hard drive19:56
SimonMty vm19:56
christoff522then install on your external19:56
christoff522just as normal19:56
SimonMI won't be really able to disconnect my internal one...19:56
Adam__How make my own OS based on Ubuntu?19:56
chudlertheadmin: LOL @ my previous question, re: lightdm/dbus. That proposal *was* integrated, as a patch: http://dev.blankonlinux.or.id/changeset/rote%2Clightdm-webkit-greeter%2C2919:56
SimonMno screwdriver or whatsoever19:56
pyroscopeAdam__:  if you need to ask that, commonly you don't19:56
SimonMadam: LFS19:56
SimonMtry that19:56
SimonMif you really want to have a linux thing of yourself19:57
christoff522if you don't take out your internal, it will install the bootloader on the internal and mess everything up19:57
Adam__me what?19:57
SimonMI've got place on my internal one19:57
SimonMso that's no problem I guess19:57
Adam__How make my own OS based on Ubuntu please? I can do it?19:57
thrillERboyOne more thing I do the same routine installs when I install ubuntu everytime. How can I automate it? any graphical tools?19:57
christoff522basically, start from scratch19:57
SimonMand another thing19:58
SimonMif I unplug my external19:58
wilee-nileeA manual install will allow grub to be put on the external19:58
christoff522put windows on your internal, and linux on external19:58
SimonMthe startup is still grey19:58
christoff522or the other way out19:58
LoshkiAdam__: Just be warned, it's a lot of work, and you'll have to do a *lot* of research to get it right...19:58
Jordan_UAdam__: What do you actually want to change?19:58
john__simon__, You still here19:58
Adam__I can rename my OS to "Adam OS"?19:58
thrillERboyAdam__: LOL everybody has to start somewhere.19:59
Jordan_UAdam__: You can take Ubuntu, change the Desktop background, and call it whatever you like and it will be "An OS based on Ubuntu".19:59
john__Adam__,  Then Don't It's In some proprietary way not actually yours19:59
dhciavconv command doesn't seem to include libx264 is there a suitable means to output an .mp4 or other format for playback?19:59
christoff522id suggest going on youtube SimonM20:00
Adam__actually my20:00
SimonMany link?20:00
christoff522and searching "installing ubuntu on external hard drive"20:00
Adam__And i can use official ubuntu repository in my own OS?20:00
SimonMwell the problem is20:00
SimonMI just want to fix my pc first20:00
john__well I'm not police, bt I'm pretty close20:00
christoff522whats on your internal hard drive?20:01
Adam__help please20:01
SimonMbecause for some reason on startup nothing happens20:01
Jordan_Udhci: If it's not built into the default avconv it should be in the mediubuntu version.20:01
Adam__And i can use official ubuntu repository in my own OS?20:01
SimonMexcept 'press esc'20:01
marahinAdam__, if you wish to create your own OS, learn what the compatiblity is.20:01
Jordan_UAdam__: Yes.20:01
marahinAnd basicly what differs Ubuntu reops from basic debian ones.20:01
dhciok i'll check for that i noticed .ogg output works ok though.20:01
john__Use the ubuntu server20:01
Adam__that's for sure?20:01
BluesKaj Adam__ http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/apt-build20:01
christoff522the only thing you can do really is reinstall on your laptop hd20:01
Jordan_UAdam__: Yes.20:01
christoff522that will fix it20:01
christoff522its definitely a bootloader issue20:02
john__It is more stable, and accepts only ssh20:02
thrillERboySimonM: the reason is its search for list of OS you've installed on your internal drive, but the information actually resides in your external drive.20:02
SimonMI'll try that20:02
SimonMand come back20:02
christoff522well said thriller20:02
Jordan_UAdam__: You can do pretty much whatever you like as long as you contribute your changes back openly (as required by the licenses of many components, like the GPL).20:02
KilroyyI promise not to ask noob questions... I promise not to ask noob questions... I promi20:03
Adam__I want rename OS and change DE and remove packages and add other but i want use official ubuntu repository servers (users will install packeges from this repos)? I can do it all of this legal??20:03
Jordan_UAdam__: And if you don't use anything but the default repositories, and don't do any ugly hack changes like installing things outside the package manager, then people could even get support for your "OS" (or respin) here.20:04
SimonMadam I thunk ubuntu is sort of open source20:04

Ben64you have 10GB free space in there, that's enough for linux, sort of21:17
SimonMand these community is much better than windows...21:17
SimonMI think problem is that HP-TOOLS is not primary anymore21:18
helpmepleaseI tried but it says E: Unable to locate package compiz-fusion-plugins-extra E: Unable to locate package compiz-fusion-plugins-main21:18

SimonMdid twice21:27
SimonMgave the same problem21:27
Ben64your drive has no ubuntus on it, so...21:27
k1lSimonM: so to tell the truth. you broke your windows while playing with the partitions and now want to solve that with the ubuntu live system21:27
shahanbangladeshany solution to my problem?21:28
SimonMsort of :)21:28
SimonMnot really playing with partitions21:28
k1lSimonM: so instead of trying to fool everyone in here you could tell the truth21:28
SimonMthe ubuntu install did it21:28
shahanbangladeshI cannt increase the brightness of my display.its 12.04 on HP mini 10021:28
SimonMI did not really fool anyone?21:28
Ben64well you're coming to #ubuntu for windows support, so thats a bit wonky21:29
SimonMi'm sorry21:29
k1lSimonM: the ubuntu install didnt cause that.21:29
SimonMbut ubuntu is just more helpful21:29
SimonMthan windows21:29
Ben64there is 10GB of free space, and ubuntu will gladly install there and boot fine21:29
Ben64if you want to get a system up and running21:29
k1lSimonM: so again: you are lying. stop that in here. stop waisting the time of volunteers21:29
Ben64otherwise there isn't really anything you can do it looks like21:29

john__Dr_willis, shut up and listen21:55

diverdudeif only i knew why ubuntu was so popular and people say linux is so insanely stable....In average ubuntu seems to crash 1-2 times per day, it over heats my processor and its insanely slow in the gui and movie playback is lagging...what is it again that is so nice about this system?21:55
Ben64john__: keep the attitude in check, nobody can help you if you don't ask a question21:56
Dr_willisdiverdude,  i could say the same thing about windows.... please rant elsewhere.21:56
Myrttidiverdude: for many people it is insanely stable. Your question is rhetoric and not really a support question that we can help you with. If you want someone to try to help you with the actual issue, supply us with more information.21:56
john__Ben64, Unless I answer hem21:56
xxhow do i update my flash21:56
xxor java21:56
Dr_willis!java | xx21:56
ubottuxx: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.21:56

Dr_willisdiverdude,  i see just the opposite in most cases. but often its due to the video card makers (ati/nvidia) not supporing the os as much as they do others..21:57
john__for spanish21:58
diverdudeDr_willis, i wish it was not....i hate admitting windows just performs better :(21:58
Dr_willisSourceSlayer,  a single user dosent needs to 'install' an app system wide just for them to use. they can run from their home directory21:58

Dr_willisSourceSlayer,  that dosent need 'source' you can extract the tar.gz into the users home and run it from there i recall..22:02

k1lmatmbl: no problem. just see if someone knows the answer22:04
SourceSlayerDr_willis: Then Blender would bea better example I guess.22:04
SolarisBoymatmbl: in most of those paths prefix with /etc/ for example /etc/pam.d is the general location of config files for pam, there is /etc/my.conf - i believe /etc/mail/ will be post fix configurations - and the saslauthd stuff i can't confirm - but safe to take a look under /etc/ for a similar pattern22:04
=== derek is now known as Guest95164
SolarisBoymatmbl: you may want to look at the logs under /var/log to get a better idea of what facility is throwing the error -22:05
matmblthat's my problem, I've even built a new vpc of 12.04 LTS and that's working perfectly with (as far as I can tell) identical setup..22:05
Myrttijohn__: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/SupportersGuide22:05
SolarisBoyyou need to look at the logs to get a better idea of where the error is coming from.22:06
Loshkimatmbl: can you diff -r the working /etc against the broken one to see where they differ?22:06
matmblquestion, if I do a "testsaslauthd -u root -p passwd -s login" should that be the same as logging into the box (from an password check perspective)22:06
Dr_willisSourceSlayer,  you can dowload the source. and compile most things, and run them from the users home directory for a single user.22:06
SolarisBoyif it's pam auth errors - you would most likely find them in /var/log/auth.log22:06
Dr_willisSourceSlayer,  the admin may need to install all the needed 'dev' packages to make the compile possible however.22:07
SolarisBoyhaven't used that binary before can't confirm - you can tail your logs and see if it did - or read the man page22:07
matmblLoshki: did that but I can only assume another (unknown) config file is different... I've been trying to 'finish' the config for someone else and it's driving me nuts!22:07
SolarisBoymatmbl: did you check the logs for any of these applications yet?22:07
SolarisBoymatmbl: /var/log/auth.log?22:07
LoshkiSourceSlayer: it's an odd way to work. Why not just install the app and let everyone use it?22:08
Loshkimatmbl: then I agree with SolarisBoy. Time to compare the logs and see if you can home in on the section that's different...22:08
SourceSlayerLoshki: Because in some cases the user will not have privileges.22:08
matmblauth.log: saslauthd[6857]: DEBUG: auth_pam: pam_authenticate failed: User not known to the underlying authentication module22:09
matmblI know the password is the same (imap-courier auth works file to the same)22:09
matmblI also know the db is being access (query logging in mysql)22:09
SolarisBoymatmbl: ok - is that a system user?22:09
matmblimap auth works *fine*22:09
LoshkiSourceSlayer: I'm confused. Are you talking about privileges to run the app, or to install it?22:10
matmblSolarisBoy: no, I'm authenticating against mailbox table in mysql (virtual user)22:10
SourceSlayerLoshki: Install22:10
SolarisBoymatmbl: thats what i thought22:10
SolarisBoymatmbl: check that whatever pam module that should be handling that action is enabled and configured properly22:11
SolarisBoymatmbl:  /etc/pam.d/smtp ? present on your system?22:11
matmblas far as I can tell it is /etc/pam.d/smtp is configured correctly,22:12
Loshkimatmbl: do you know what username is being used?22:12
SolarisBoymatmbl: and be sure that you have all the proper pam additional software instaleld (if needed)22:12
matmblauth required pam_mysql.so user=mail passwd=XXX host= db=maildb table=mailbox usercolumn=username passwdcolumn=password crypt=1 md5=122:12

=== Nisstyre-laptop is now known as Nisstyre
SolarisBoymatmbl: how did you duplicate this configuration?22:13

matmblI didn't I reinstalled from base ubuntu on another vpc. then installed following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PostfixCompleteVirtualMailSystemHowto22:14
SolarisBoymatmbl: so you have re-installed all those packages?22:15
Loshkimatmbl: So it does a mysql lookup for the authentication? Do the *contents* of the mysql database differ between the working and non-working versions?22:15
matmblthe problem installation is something I'm trying to complete for someone else (he was having problems). I've got it almost complete except for this darn smtp authentication22:15

mywatsjalIm logged in via terminal now as user so how to stop startx please help22:20
Jordan_Utheqkash: Then it's probably in a chroot or other virtual container, and upstart has problems with those (or at least did at one time). On top of that, you can't be sure that the kernel was actually upgraded with everything else. Does your VPS provide upgrading instructions?22:20
SourceSlayerLoshki: Earth was just an example, they can install different things..22:20
theqkashJordan_U: there is no instruction or nothing22:21
Jordan_Utheqkash: Call up the tech support and ask them.22:22
LoshkiSourceSlayer: I understand, but the principle is the same. In general, you install whatever you think they may need on the guest machine. It's probably too much of a security risk to give them permission to install/uninstall on their own...22:22
