cuong_tI got this from their (system 76) support, can anyone verify this: "All of our laptops will output to two external monitors simultaneously.

pzulais it possible to delete all OS's listed in Grub, or do I just need to overwrite all partitions with one OS first?00:02
blob4000is 13.04 officially supported as of Thursday?00:03
pzulaI have dual boot Win7 and Ubuntu00:03
linuxuz3rit seems that you know sed why ask it in ubuntu?00:03
OerHeksblob4000, yes00:03
dr_willisblob4000:  once its released - yes.00:03
blob4000thanks! i'm looking forward to it. i've been sticking with 12.04 because of an HDMI problem i was having with 12.1000:04
wilee-nileepzula, What is your goal here?00:04
pzulawipe both systems and reinstall both systems00:05
wilee-nileepzula, If you need no backups, the windows install disc has a manual install function that allows you to wipe partitions and install in sized partitions. I would install it first.00:07
pzulawilee-nilee: thank you00:08
wilee-nileepzula, no problem, I assume here that the computer is not a safe boot uefi setup, and the windows disc is not a OEM, but a regular install disc.00:09
LjLSurakusa: if by special characters you mean non-ascii, perhaps you could pipe it some utility like "iconv", "recode" or "tcs"00:09

pzulawilee-nilee: would it be best to first install windows on a smaller partition and then when I load the Ubuntu disc, it will see the remaining free space?00:10
AthanasiusYes hello. Quick question: Recommendation for software to make a flow-chart?00:11
wilee-nileepzula, Yeah, you want windows at the front of the disc.00:11
blob4000quick question: if i'm running 12.04 LTS at the moment, what's the best way to update to 13.04 on Thursday? just run the update manager, and disable the requirement for LTS versions?00:11
dr_willispzula:  when you reinstall linux it will redo the grub menus00:11
OerHeksblob4000, correct00:11
pzulawilee-nilee: so it will install grub by itself?00:11
blob4000OerHeks: thanks! is there any significant advantage to a fresh install?00:11
wilee-nileepzula, Yeah as dr_willis mentioned00:12
pzulathank you both00:12
dr_willisblob4000:  best may be to update the day befor.. ;) of wait a few days afterwards.. of use the torrents thursday to get the iso.00:12
blob4000cool :)00:12
SurakusaLjL: Thanks for the reply! Well this is the text I got (hopefully this webchat will work) ONE·_YEAR_(1%)_PREPAYMENT_ADDENDUM_TO_NOTE that little 'dot' to the right of One and the % sign I want rid of. lol00:12
dr_willisevery release the servers get hammered. ;) i tend to update/upgrade the day befor.. then wait out the storm00:12
OerHeksblob4000, my way is: download the 13.04 iso, burn or dd to usb device, upgrade, if all went well you can decide to do a fresh install, anyway you have the iso to repair your install.00:13
blob4000dr_willis: yeah? so when you get it the day before, it's still the beta?00:13
dr_willisblob4000:  technically yes.. but when i next update a few days later its the final. but theres normally very few updates.00:13
blob4000OerHeks: good idea00:13
dr_willisusing the torrents after reelase will be the fastest time to get the ISO files also. ;)00:14
blob4000i predict 13.04 will be the last version with the current Unity interface, things will start to really change by 13.10, towards a concise UI between devices00:14

blob4000how quickly do all of the mirrors get a new release?00:29
blob4000many hours i'm guessing?00:29
dr_willisi think thats part of the wait for 'official' release.. they sync the mirrors then say  'its out'00:30
dr_willisbut really.. its best to use the torrents to get the ISO files00:30
dr_willisand you can then upgrade from the iso files i belive00:32

The_RufusI have a server running ubuntu server. I had the OS installed on a flashdrive which has died. All my important data was in /home which resided on a HighPoint RocketRaid 2320 RAID5 array. I re-installed Ubuntu server 10.04 and installed the appropriate drivers. When I mount the filesystem on the RAID array, every directory is intact and contains all the previous installations information except for the /home directory, which is empty00:35
dr_willischeck your old fstab? perhaps /home/ was mounted from some other location00:36
The_Rufuswhat's the path to fstab?00:37
Jordan_Udr_willis: Sounds like the fstab was on the flash drive, though I agree about your guess as to the problem.00:37
dr_willisim rereading what you said.. and it seems a little confuseing..  /home/ was on a raid. everything was there except /home/   you mean / was on a raid. and everything (/etc /var /lib) is there except /home ?00:37
dr_willisfstab is in /etc/00:38
The_Rufusthe flashdrive was mounted as /, /home/ was on the raid array00:38
Jordan_UThe_Rufus: Have you mounted the RAID array yet?00:38
foobArrrprinting problem: my printers work for a few pages, then stop printing. the print queue window shows "Printing ...", the kde printer settings panel shows "in use", but nothing happens anymore. after reboot they work again, but only for a few pages. same behavior with two different printers (Brother HL-2030 and Oki B4100), same behavior on a fresh user account. 12.10 64bit00:38
falcomfoobArrr, make sure you got a stable driver?00:39
dr_willisuntill you mount the raid - its not accessable. :)00:39
The_Rufusold fstab has the entry UUID=blahblahblah /home ext4 nodev,nosuid 0 200:39
dr_willis  The_Rufus  use the 'sudo blkid' command to identify what partion is /home/ and mount it.00:40
dr_willisor copy that line to your current /etc/fstab and 'sudo  mount /home'00:40
sjd_zeusjoin #ubuntu-cn00:40
foobArrrfalcom: I use the same ppds that I used a year ago, and back then they worked fine. also: 2 different printers, 2 different manufacturers, I doubt it's a driver issue.00:41
dr_willisyou dont really have to moiunt it over your current /home/ you could mount it to /old-home/ or  /media/oldhome00:41
Jordan_UThe_Rufus: In re-reading your past comments I'm confused as well. What you're saying seems self contradictory.00:41
yll_alexni hao00:41
The_Rufusthat's why I'm so confused00:41
dr_willisThe_Rufus:  you are booted from what right now? a differnt flash drive?00:41
The_Rufusno, installed new installation onto an 80gb HDD00:42
dankodigohi everyone im from chile00:42
dr_willisso you need to mount youir old home, in order to access it.. the new install has no idea what/where your old home was.. unless you told the installer where it was00:43
dr_willishopefully you dident tell it to format the old home...00:43
Jordan_UThe_Rufus: How did you mount the filesystem from the RAID array? Please give the exact commands you ran, and the current output of "cat /proc/mounts".00:43
MartynKeigherhey all... need advice. i need to connect my 12.04 server to a mysql server via odbc. what is the best method for doing this??00:45
The_RufusI've added the line to my current fstab and I'm rebooting00:45
MartynKeigherthe mysql db sits behind an external FQDN that i have access to. just need the best method of creating the odbc link to it.00:45

The_RufusIt's really not that complicated. / is on an 80gb HDD (previously on an 8gb USB flash disk, which died) and I have a 10Tb RAID5 array on a Highpoint RocketRaid controller which /home is mounted on00:49

dr_willis_at least you had your old fstab to look at The_Rufus00:50
The_Rufusword of advice, don't get Highpoint controller cards. Their driver support is $*#(@*^ hideous00:51
Jordan_UThe_Rufus: I think the more important point to learn from this is that RAID is not a replacement for backups. Your actual data is much more important than the configuration stuffs in /etc/.00:51
The_RufusI know, and being in IT, I preach that to people all the time00:52
The_Rufusproblem is, I've ran out of storage space to backup onto00:52
Kilroy_was_herehi all, ubuntu noob here, just saying hi00:53
Jordan_URay2: Ubuntu (on BIOS based systems) installs grub to the MBR of the "first" drive by default. So Ubuntu 12.04's grub is probably what's in the MBR already. You can ensure that though by running "sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc" and make sure that the drive whose MBR you want grub's boot sector installed to is selected. (Use space bar to select / unselect a device, and Enter to continue to the next screen).00:53
The_RufusI know this is #ubuntu, but has anyone given ZorinOS a go?00:55
Jordan_UThe_Rufus: Try #ubuntu-offtopic.00:56

=== Swish[\] is now known as Swish
dr_willispeepsalot:  may be a good idea to make it mount to /media/peeps/storage in the future, and perhaps setup a soft link from /home/peeps/storage to /media/peeps/storage01:22
dr_willisThe_Rufus:  given how rarely i would need such  an option. ;) easier to just do a 'gksudo gedit /path/to/file'01:23
peepsalotdr_willis, i tried umount -f and even that said it was busy01:23

dr_willispeepsalot:  bummer.. try -fffffff   ;)01:24
BeeBuuhow can i know A software version in ubuntu 13.04 in here?01:24
dr_willisi recall nfs not playing nice when  the remote servers drop connection.01:24
AddleWell, hard mounting NFS can help protect from data loss. A feature, not a bug. But you can soft mount it.01:25
dr_willisBeeBuu:  i think you can /msg ubottu  release packagename              and get the info01:25
Jordan_UBeeBuu: #ubuntu+1 for 13.04 (though you can check package info for any realease of Ubuntu from http://packages.ubuntu.com ).01:25

Jordan_UBeeBuu: You're welcome.01:27
peepsalotAddle, nfs-common: unrecognized service01:27
Jordan_Upeepsalot: What is the exact umount -f command you ran, and what was the exact output?01:30
peepsalotJordan_U, http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/5597202/01:31
Jordan_Upeepsalot: "sudo umount -l /home/peeps/storage" should at least allow you to do a lazy umount, which, while not completely unmounting will at least stop future processes from freezing and allow you to use the directory again.01:32
Addlepeepsalot: If you want it to just fail next time and not hang until the server comes back, you should be able to soft mount it.01:34
=== r0tha is now known as whois
=== whois is now known as r0tha
Addlepeepsalot: Just add 'soft' to the mount options.01:34
peepsalotok i will try that, thanks01:34
Addlepeepsalot: Of course, if the nfs server goes away for any reason, you could lose data, so hard mounting has its advantages, but it's an option. :)01:35
peepsalotAddle, what would happen if i write to a disconnected soft mounted nfs mount01:36
peepsalotit would act like it went ok, but data goes nowhere?01:36
Addlepeepsalot: It should give an error, but that depends on what's writing.01:36
Addlepeepsalot: Honestly, I always go with hard mounts to avoid problems, so not sure. But presumably an app that tried to write would get errors and should report it.01:37
peepsalotok, well i don't write to it often, and i should know when i'm on my home network or not, so i will give it a try01:37
Addlepeepsalot: In theory, it should act somewhat like if a SMB share went down.01:38
jordan__Is this a good place to ask support related questions?01:38
wilee-nileejordan__, You see this in the channel header " Official Ubuntu Support Channel"01:39
Jordan_Upeepsalot: As explained in "man nfs", unless you specify the sync mount option write functions will return success before the data has neccessarily been sent to the server. If the server disconnects between the process writing to the file, and that data actually being sent to the server, the process will never know that it failed.01:39
jordan__wilee-nilee: o, my bad01:39
Jordan_Upeepsalot: But of course the sync mount option has its own significant downsides.01:39

wilee-nileejordan__,  Nah, it is all good. ;)01:40
=== otend_ is now known as otend
Jordan_Upeepsalot: Also mentioned in that man page is that if you have a particularly important, application, that won't mind blocking on write for a long time, you can open the file with the O_SYNC flag so that you know if the write succeeded or failed (to actually get to the server).01:44

K`zanI need both the 32 bit and 64 bit python libraries here, running 12.04/64.  I've googled my brain loose and can't find how to get them, any help, pointers or suggestions MUCH appreciated!02:59
K`zanI do have the 64 bit ones...03:00
tgm4883K`zan, there are different python libraries for 32 and 64 bit?03:01
tgm4883I thought that was one of the points of python, to make arch independent code03:01
K`zantgm4883: SO I am told, I've got other libraries that are both AFAIK.03:01
tgm4883K`zan, I don't think there are different python libraries for 32 and 64 bit, but if you need 32-bit libraries for other things it's usually done by adding :i386 to the end03:02

K`zanWhen the 32 bit app attempts to run a python script, it goes toast not finding the 32bit libraries.  64 bit X-Plane and 64 bit plugins work fine, problem is that all the desired plugins are not 64 bit and may never be.03:09

satyamashHi, I downloaded a ubuntu server 12.04.2 i386 iso and used unetbootin to make a bootable pendrive04:17
histosatyamash: good04:18
satyamashThe check CD integrity test fails, but md5sums of the iso show that it is correctly downloaded04:18
histosatyamash: You can md5sum the usb drive but you have to use bs and count to get it right to verify04:19
histo!md5sum | satyamash04:19

histosatyamash: basically do an ls whatever.iso  and take the blocksize then dd if=/dev/of/usb bs=1 count=blocksizeFromls | md5sum04:20
satyamashhisto: but a simple md5 sum myfile.iso matches the md5sum on the site04:21
histosatyamash: ahh nvm you used unetbootin not a dd to make the usb.04:22
SonikkuAmericahisto: *buntu ISOs are dd-compatible.04:22

Its half broken. The only thing which works is the browser. How am I supposed to go back to unity? I cannot logout of this DE05:06
bhaveshI did sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -s ubuntu from ctrl + alt + f2 but still it again boots into jolicloud05:07
histobhavesh: check your .xinitrc and see what it did there05:08
bhaveshhisto: how? there is no file manager05:08
histobhavesh: also make sure it's still using lightdm who knows what jolicloud does05:08
histobhavesh: ctrl+alt+F2 and cat ~/.xinitrc05:08
histobhavesh: also sudo service lightdm status05:08
histobhavesh: on the login screen choose unity as your session05:10
TanshinOerHeks, I did what you said. It didn't work, so I uninstalled all Broadcom packages and tried again. It's still not displaying anywhere except lspci. Any other suggestions?05:11
histoTanshin: where else are you talking about it displaying?05:13
histoTanshin: What version of ubuntu are you running?05:13
Tanshinhisto: 12.04. The device USED to appear in the Network Config menu, with "Firmware missing". It appears in lspci. I don't know where else I would look.05:14
histoTanshin: Install firmware then using System Settings > Hardware drivers05:15
Tanshinhisto: You're coming in late... the device no longer appears there.05:15
qwebirc68057what device?05:16
TanshinDerp, hangon05:16
ikk-my mouse is supended after 10 min , how to wakup it ?05:16
TanshinNow that I've cycled the drivers using Modprobe, and then reloaded them the same way, it's appearing in Additional Drivers05:16
bhaveshhisto: cat : home/bhavesh/.xinitrc No such file or directory05:17
histoTanshin: the module has to be loaded and then that module needs the firmware05:17
bhaveshhisto: lightdm start/running, process >no here<05:17
histobhavesh: At the login screen select unity instead of jolicloud05:17
bhaveshhisto: Also there is no login screen05:17
Tanshinhisto: Too early to tell, but I think between you, me, and OerHeks, it's fixed.05:17
bray90820Anyone here use mythtv05:18
Tanshinsince it appears in Additional Drivers and says it's downloading and installing the driver05:18
bhaveshhisto: I set it to automatic login while installing ubuntu05:18
histobhavesh: well you need to figure out how that auto login with lightdm works and disable it05:18
bhaveshhisto: k, ty :)05:19
histobhavesh: I'd assume something in /etc/lightdm05:19
DoYouKnowhi... all I want to do is install 12.04 32-bit through wubi, but since I'm on a 64-bit laptop it wants to redownload the whole thing05:19
DoYouKnowI extracted the iso on 32-bit winxp, but it wants to redownload everything05:19
DoYouKnowI don't need 64-bit ubuntu05:20
TanshinSome programs really need an "I dun wanna!" button, yeah?05:20
DoYouKnowwell, at least a somewhat sophisticated CLI05:20
histoDoYouKnow: Do you need to use wubi?05:20
DoYouKnowhisto: Yeah, I don't know where my USB stick is05:21
DoYouKnowand I can't go looking for it this late05:21
histoDoYouKnow: I would highly advise against using wubi as support for it is dropping as of 12.1005:21
bcbc2DoYouKnow: don't extract the iso. put it in the same folder as wubi.exe before running.05:21
histoDoYouKnow: But yeah if windows is 64bit then it's going to want 64bit wubi whatever05:21
DoYouKnowit's not working, bcbc205:22
DoYouKnowit keeps trying to redownload files05:22
bcbc2you said you extracted the iso05:23

I can ping my server from outside. I can ssh into server from within my local network no worries. Any suggestions on where to look. When I try to connect from outside I get "No route to host" this is on headless server05:47

VivekanandHello, I have a question06:16
VivekanandA software is installed "SUCCESSFULLY" in a ubuntu 32 server (provider godaddy) but when it is accessed through browser it just doesnt work. The installation file (created during installation in the user's home directory) is not visible now (Application installed as the user and not as root, also it is not a kind of hidden files issue). When we try06:16
Vivekanand to install the same software again it says those instalaltion folder already exists. When will this scenario occur ?06:16
histohammommah: yeah try a different port just to see if they are blocking 2206:17
histohammommah: if not I'd suspect your port forward is screwed up somehow.06:17
histoVivekanand: what "software"06:17
Vivekanandhisto: its an help desk software, which has a web interface to access it06:19
hammommahhisto, whats cmd for shh on different port? ssh user@pulicip -p 222206:20
histoVivekanand: Well you'd probably have to talk with whom ever wrote the "helpdesk" software and ask them as you issue has nothing to do with ubuntu06:20
histohammommah: ssh -p 2222 user@pulicip06:20
hammommahhisto, ty06:20
VivekanandThanks histo, I'll contact them.06:20
VivekanandBtw, have you ever faced this kind of scenario with any other software/application ?06:21
histoVivekanand: most likely your issue is though wherever this "software" installed it's pages to is not in the /var/www or wherever apache is set to host up webpages06:21
histoVivekanand: probably stuck it in /home/user/public_html or something similar06:21
hammommahhisto, port 2222 worked straight away :)06:22
histohammommah: double check your port 22 forward06:22
histohammommah: that's very odd that an isp would block 22 . I've seen them block 25 but not 22 before06:22
hammommahall i did was change value in current port forward from 22 to 2222?06:24
VivekanandActuallly histo: that application has its own bundled tomcat which will be used by starting the application06:24
VivekanandThe problem happening here is that server startup itself is failing because the application cant "see" the installation directory06:25
Vivekanandbut when tried to install the same thing in same place again, it says files already exists06:26
Vivekanandthats what is confusing me06:26
jonyI want a job to work from home06:26

ThatOneRoadieuse netstat -tulpn to confirm (the -n flag doesn't resolve port numbers to processes)06:43
ThatOneRoadieif port 2222 works, but port 22 does not, then check three things:06:44
ThatOneRoadie1) Your router's port forwarding (Consult router manual, and make sure the router itself isn't hogging external port 22)06:44
SocialEvilguys the new internet is going to be installed home, but the cable guy said that the mac address is "already taken" by some guy in another city and he cant connect me. any idea how can my mac address be the same like the mac address from another city ?06:44
Jordan_USocialEvil: That doesn't even conceptually make sense, unless the problem is with the MAC address of their own equiptment.06:45
ThatOneRoadie2) iptables (sudo iptables -L, and look for something like chain INCOMING \n DROP ssh -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:ssh06:45
ThatOneRoadieSocial: It's entirely their problem. Tell him to fix it.06:46
hammommahrouter is setup correctly as all i do is change 22 to 2222, remote management is disaled in case this uses port 22.06:46
ThatOneRoadieIf their modems have doplicate mac addresses, they need to fix it.06:46
ThatOneRoadiehammommah: so, if someone external to your network connects to port 22, the connection drops, yes?06:46
mattnieSocialEvil: I have thought the MAC Adress is only valid localy???06:47
hammommahyep i get "no route to host" ut a tracepath on 22 shows it finds my ext ip add06:48
ThatOneRoadiemattnie: MAC addresses are (supposedly) unique IDs assigned to networking devices. In theory, a single unique MAC belongs to a single networking device (Be it a networking card, wireless card, or cable modem)06:48
qinSocialEvil: If it is MAC code, you need to get it from your piervious provider...06:48
ThatOneRoadieTo summarize an entire section of most networking certifications, IP address is an address that tells some other computer how to talk to it (like a phone number); MAC Address is how to GET to it (like a house address)06:49
hammommahmy iptables has nothing in it ar the standard chain input (policy accept) and same for forward and output06:49
mattnieThatOneRoadie: I know that! But is it normaly that the macadress is used for anything on the internet?06:50
SocialEvilJordan_U mattnie qin thank you guys06:51
linux_unix-10how do i add fonts in ubuntu?06:51
ThatOneRoadiemattnie: the way you're thinking, no; Cable companies assign Public IP addresses to their coaxial cable modems by MAC address. If the MAC is invalid (unsupported modem or possible theft of product) or duplicated (Possibly trying to, again, steal service)06:51
ThatOneRoadiethen no IP is assigned06:51

Nmbr1mattnie: mac addresses are used by routers to build things called ARP tables. this associates mac addresses with ip addresses and among a number of other things ensures that traffic is routed to the correct address, because whereas DNS translates IPs to hostnames (and vice versa) packets are routed by routers and managed switches by mac address06:51

ThatOneRoadieqin: He's saying that port 2222 sees connection refused when not listening, whereas 22 shows no route06:58
ThatOneRoadiewhich makes me think the router is hogging the port06:58

ThatOneRoadieIf they claim they don't block ports, they're pretty much held to that06:59
hammommahqin, no no 2222 still works when i set sshd to listen on port 2222, i just changed it ack to 22 to check diffence in netstat -tulpn06:59
hammommahnetgear dgn220006:59
Nmbr1hammommah: easy check, plug the ssh server box into the lan port of the router. login to the router and set port forwarding for Incoming TCP 2222 forward to ip of your ssh server on TCP 22. open putty with a proxy like tor and try to ssh into the box.07:00
SocialEvilJordan_U about the mac.. they said. when they write "ifconfig" that the mac adress they see is already in their system, added for a guy in other city.07:01
Jordan_USocialEvil: When they write ifconfig where? On their own equiptment?07:02
SocialEvilon my computer07:02
qinSocialEvil: you really need new ISP.07:02
Jordan_USocialEvil: So there is a person at your house right now, working with your computer?07:02
SocialEvilto both of you :D07:02
ThatOneRoadiehammommah: Make sure the "Blocked Services" page is blank (some come pre-loaded), and then check the UPNP page and make sure it's not being forwarded there.07:02
ThatOneRoadieOtherwise, double-check your port forwarding settings; make sure you have port 22 forwarded (both TCP and UDP) to the right address07:03
Jordan_USocialEvil: Ask them why two MAC addresses being the same on different networks matters at all.07:04
ThatOneRoadieNmbr1: the dgn2200 (and really, most netgear routers) do port forwardning, but not port mapping.07:04
SocialEvilJordan_U what do you mean different networks ?07:04
Jordan_USocialEvil: Note that you can change your MAC address, even through the network manager GUI, but it shouldn't matter.07:04
hammommahwhat if i turn it to modem only mode? there is no blocked services ta only blocked sites and its empty07:05
ThatOneRoadiedon't do that; Modem only mode shuts off NAT and routing07:05
hammommahnot mentioned in upnp07:05
Jordan_USocialEvil: Is the modem/router they're using configured to do NAT?07:06
hammommahNmbr1, cant plug server straight into modem/router as server is in grannyflat 30m away07:07
SocialEvilJordan_U i have no idea.. actually i am in germany, they are in bulgaria.. and my mother is dealing with them.. and she dond understand a thing .. she only knows how to turn it on and go to her mail :D07:07
SocialEvilJordan_U even tho i can change my mac.. to what should i change it ?:D07:07
qinSocialEvil: Are you using BE?07:07
SocialEvilBE? i guess not07:07
ThatOneRoadieSocialEvil: if they're whining about the MAC of something in the next town over, then it's their problem. Tell him to get you a modem with a different MAC07:08
qinSocialEvil: They may brag about Migration Authorisation Code07:08
SocialEvilThatOneRoadie they didnt even changed the net .. its still the old isp now07:08
SocialEvilqin i have no idea what that is :) and where to get it07:09
hammommahi just dont know why port 2222 works fine ut 22 doesnt when there setup exactly the same must just leave it on port 2222 and e done with it07:09
qinSocialEvil: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Migration_Authorisation_Code, some other countries have similar feature07:10
ThatOneRoadiehammommah: the only thing I can think of is either the ISP is lying and they do block incoming port 22, or the router for some reason is hogging port 22 for its own ssh and won't give it up.07:11
hammommahtrue that, i even setup remote management to random port just incase it uses 22 for this, but it didnt help07:12
ThatOneRoadieI had a router once that refused to give up port 8007:13
ThatOneRoadieit wouldn't port foward it because it was being used for the remote management page, and even after I changed the remote management page to 8080, it still refused to forward it.07:13
ThatOneRoadiethat router went straight in the bin07:13
hammommahpretty crap to hog port 22 yet along 80 lol07:13
SocialEvilqin, no. they said they need the one with xx:xx:xx:xx:xx07:14
qinhammommah: did you test localhost:22 and localhost:2222 (if you sitting by the box)07:14
qinSocialEvil: very strange...07:14
SocialEvilbulgaria.. :D its fun there07:15
dinesh_hello everybody07:15
ThatOneRoadieqin: i've had it happen before where my cable service was cut off because someone else connected a (cable company provided) cable modem with the same MAC address07:15
ThatOneRoadietheir system was set up so that, in the event of MAC address conflict, neither system got issued a public IP address07:15
hammommahlocalhost:22: command not found07:15
ThatOneRoadie(to prevent routing issues)07:15
ThatOneRoadiehammommah: ssh localhost:22 from the server box07:16
verchanwhen is the next ubuntu being released?07:16
ThatOneRoadieverchan: when it gets released07:16
hammommahssh: Could not resolve hostname localhost:22: Name or service not known............ might e prolem with my dns server?07:16

ThatOneRoadienp hammommah :) always happy to help07:19
Jordan_USocialEvil: The MAC address comes with the hardware, and hardware manufacturers are required to ensure that they are unique.07:19
SocialEvilJordan_U is it possible the other person spoofed it ?07:20

=== zz_Karbowiak is now known as Karbowiak
Jordan_USocialEvil: Yes, especially if all of their customers really are on the same network segment and can just do an ARP request on to find the MAC address that corresponds to any ip. If that really is what's happening though, then make sure that your mother never gets a Windows machine and never allows friends to connect to her internet connection (which will already be hard). Or have her buy a router.07:23
hammommahqin, done that and it works fine :) ty for help07:23
x5ivesI'll check in #lubuntu.07:24
hammommahqin, I was trying to find out why 22 does not work, ut i'll just stick with 222207:24
Jordan_USocialEvil: But really, an ISP having all their customers, including ones from other cities, on the same network segment with no router between their computer and this segment is just absurd. I'm not sure it's even possible, but if it is then your mom's machine is basically in a DMZ, and with a hostile local network to boot.07:25

levolentby the way the reason for those  2 lines is the first i was told then it gave error. when i told helper of error he had me remove SSB then it worked.07:51

levolent2k we're on wifi! thanks takeitez ... it remains to be seen if this undos itself in a few days as happened twice before though.  Come to think of it this last time it was plugged in with full battery the whole time too, and an initial reboot didn't make it revert at first cause I was testing for that.08:00

gigasfranco: try setting an admin password in the bios and disabling secure boot08:26
MrDecentdr_willis:  How do I check package detailed settings?08:27
dr_willisMrDecent:  i just use synaptic to see them normally08:27
gigasMrDecent: the aptitude command (not apt-get) gives more info as well08:28
MrDecentdr_willis:  Alright :) Well I thought, when I did sudo apt-get install --reinstall monodevelop it should purge settings as well, before install it again. But it seems all config files was left behind anyway. I want to remove them.08:29
dr_willisMrDecent:  if you are refering to settings in the USERS home.. it will NOT.08:29
MrDecentgigas:  Then I need to install aptitude ... :P COuldnt dpkg get me info? :D08:29
smOBuddaanyone use proxmox with ubuntu08:29
gigasMrDecent: "The primary and more user-friendly front-end for dpkg  is  aptitude(1)"08:30
ubottuaptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. You may encounter problems on multiarch installs (11.10 and higher) as aptitude cannot currently handle the same package with different architectures being installed at the same time. See http://pad.lv/831768 for more information.08:30
MrDecentI know what aptitude is, but I usually do not like it :P08:31
gigasit gives handy information sometimes08:31
bazhanggigas, there are issues with aptitiude, see above08:32
gigasi normally use it to find what repo a package is in, or to check installation status08:32
bazhanggigas, it may be primary in debain, it's NOT in ubuntu08:32
gigasaye, i got used to it in older releases of ubuntu08:33
MrDecentANyway, I found ~/.config/Monodevelop3.0 but there is some strange application config files I cannot edit :S08:33
TakeItEZgigas: it still works fine on 32bit, but has issues on 64bit/multiarch08:33
MrDecentWould it be safe to remove them?08:34
gigasfair enough08:34

TakeItEZnitin__: there are some whatsapp-clients in development, but none of those work atm (afaik). and even if they will run, they won't allow dual-use, so you will be kicked from whatsapp on phone if you use a different client. but this is offtopic, you might ask mr google for more info08:55

gigaslevolent2: gdebi seems to do better with dependencies09:21
levolent2gigas its just a benchmark suite09:22
levolent2takeitez i held super but dont see a task manager listed here. windows hotkeys obviously not working but would be Ctrl+Shift+ESC or Ctrl+Alt+Delete09:22
levolent2monkeydust can you say why I should use apt-get instead of gigas suggestion? (im not clear on the syntax for that command anyway so it wouldn't be my first choice)09:24
TakeItEZlevolent2: you cannot use apt-get install ... to install a local .deb file09:25
dr_willisyou dont use apt-get on a  .deb you allready have downloaded09:25
dr_willisgdebi foo.deb    is very handy - it will install any extra needed dependencies from the repositories.  if they are in the repos09:25
levolent2i've used apt-get a few times but never those others09:25
gigaslevolent2: there's a gui version too, gdebi-gtk09:26
TakeItEZlevolent2: apt-get install foo   to install stuff from repos, not local files09:26
dr_willisdownloading a .deb by itself. is a bit of the exception in ubuntu, not the common practice09:26
levolent2i just want to use phoronix benchmark suite and the .deb was listed for ubuntu/debian .. i guess i could see whats in the standard linux option?09:27
levolent2thanks gigas this gdebi-gtk gui is WAY more light-weight than USC for my older laptop. unfortunately everything is greyed out and dont even see a file select ability09:30
levolent2ahh they stashed it in the alt menu and didn't provide a button apparently09:30

levolent2didn't see an option to set default so instead i "forget association" on the other 2... but somehow its still USC for double click09:42
dr_willis the  upstart 'cookbook' site has some examples for upstart scripts09:42
gigaslevolent2: you should be able to right click on the .deb file in the file manager, choose "open with"09:43
levolent2yea i did that... found some more stuff in properties this is probably it09:43
levolent2yep "set as default " is there09:43

SomelauwI installed opencv following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OpenCV . When doing pkg-config --libs opencv, nithing shows up.10:58
Somelauwesing: apt-get update is superfluous if you are doing apt-get dist-upgrade anyway.10:59
Somelauwoh, way nvm, I was confused with apt-get upgrade10:59
MonkeyDustesing  looks good10:59
esingSomelauw, Oh, I didn't know that. So dist-upgrade implies apt-get update10:59
esingMonkeyDust, I could put the do-release-upgrade in cron.weekly, but I worry that putting it into cron.monthly is too great delay, assuming it would be released few days after the cron.month.11:00
Somelauwesing: no, nvm, I was confused11:00
shafoxhi, how to upgrade php 5.3 to php 5.4 in ubuntu lucid11:01
MonkeyDustesing  release-upgrade is only every six months, useless to do it every month11:01
Ben64esing: you shouldn't need a cron, systems usually are set to auto update11:01
esingGood to know, thanks11:02
ItachiMonkeyDust, sorry, I am still confused. If I do an apt-get dist-upgrade,  on 12.10 after release of 13.04, does my kernel gets upgraded to 3.8?11:03
MonkeyDustItachi  no11:03
shafoxif i update the php version from 5.3 to 5.4 will that break mysql also ??? using this https://launchpad.net/~ondrej/+archive/php5/+packages11:04
MonkeyDustItachi  kernel 3.8 comes with 13.04, when you install it11:04
ItachiMonekyDust, so, I'll have to wait for the repository to be updated if I want it on 12.10 using upgrade method. right?11:05
shafoxor rather this lucid https://launchpad.net/~ondrej/+archive/php5?field.series_filter=lucid11:05
ItachiMonkeyDust, so, I'll have to wait for the repository to be updated if I want it on 12.10 using upgrade method. right?11:06
esingIam curious if a (few) programs break when I'd upgrade to 13.04 stable in a few days. I'll see11:06
MonkeyDustItachi  the 12.10 repo contains kernel 3.5, which will be patched with each upgrade, but not replaced by kernel 3.811:06
MonkeyDustItachi  kernel 3.8 will never be in the 12.10 repos11:07
Ben64however, it will be in 12.0411:07
ItachiMonkeyDust, now I understood. The kernel version never changes, but is patched. Am I right this time?11:07
esingItachi, Why would you want to keep 12.10 instead of upgrading to 13.04?11:07
MonkeyDustItachi  yes11:07
Ben64if you don't want to upgrade every 6 months, you should use the LTS version11:08
MonkeyDustItachi  it was confusing for me, too11:08
esingI worry that programs break more likely if one upgrades from one LTS to another LTS due of greater release cycles and more dependencies differences11:09
MonkeyDustesing  on the contrary11:10
Itachiesing, I want to install ubuntu desktop on college labs. Requirements are to keep the the lab computers as updated as possible. I thought to make an uupdate && upgrade startup script at system startup. But now I think I'll have to install 13.04 manually on each computer11:10
jpdsesing: Nothing to testing upgrades first?11:10
ItachiMonkeyDust, thanks for explaining me.11:11
Ben64esing: the non-LTS releases are more experimental and prone to breakage than LTS11:11
esingOh I see, so LTS is also safer concerning package breaks on upgrade11:12
Ben64yeah, trade "newness" for stability11:12
Ben645 years of support vs 1.5 years11:13

SomelauwBut I can't use opencv from C++, because I can't link to it.11:38

jribSomelauw: and now what are you trying to build and how?11:41
Somelauwjrib: Well,  pkg-config --libs opencv should output the files I need to link with according to the opencv wiki.11:42
jribSomelauw: ok11:43
SomelauwAlso cmake doesn't work because when I do find_package( OpenCV REQUIRED )11:43
SomelauwSo I haven't found a way to compile a program using opencv.11:43

jribSomelauw: you need this package11:45
Somelauwhuh, okay, I'll do another apt-get libopencv-dev? Then I guess the instructions are incomplete11:46
Somelauwjrib: thanks, now it works11:47
Somelauwand cmake works as well now11:47
Somelauwmakes me wonder why the package consists of so many parts that need to be installed separely11:47
AtuMI have 12.10 installed with 3.5.0-26-generix 64bit kernel installed... it boots up fine but then the first console becomes blocked.. i can however switch to the 2nd console and login.. any idea on what causes this?11:55
levolent2anyone know how to reduce GPU usage in Ubuntu 12 ? I'm looking for an equivalent to disabling Aero.11:56
ch1p53tremove gui11:57
AtuMlevolent2, I believe a switch to another desktop might be the only cure.. or what ch1p53t11:57
levolent2I want a minimal gui no 3d or flashy stuff11:57
levolent2you're saying this isn't able to be disabled like windows Aero can?11:57
k1l_levolent2: ubuntu 12 is not specific enough11:58
k1l_levolent2: what does "lsb_release -r" tell you?11:58
NewWorldAtuM:  How do you know it's blocked? Have you tried typing something and pressing enter?11:58
AtuMlevolent2, install the server version.. it defaults to cli.. almost no flashy stuff there11:58
AtuMNewWorld, yeah.. I see no input, nothing happens if i try to login there11:59
k1l_levolent2: did you take a look at Lxde (lubuntu-desktop) ?11:59
ch1p53tinstalling the server version is the best option12:00
AtuMNewWorld, sorry.. i see the input, but nothing happens after pressing enter.. it just goes to newline12:00
ch1p53tAtuM...have u tried installing bgp service in ubuntu?12:01
k1l_you can boot into the tty with every ubuntu version. no need for server version for that12:01
ch1p53tk1l_, he wants a minimal gpu usage12:01
ch1p53tthat's it12:01
AtuMch1p53t, nope .. don't know what bgp is..12:02

k1l_levolent2: ok12:02
k1l_!lubuntu | levolent212:03
ubottulevolent2: lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.12:03
levolent2if you're talking about installing another distro I am not interested. If that's the solution I'll deal with it.12:03
levolent2its laggy but bearable12:03
k1l_levolent2: no, you can install the GUI-Package12:03
k1l_levolent2: the package name is: lubuntu-desktop . after that you can choose which desktop you want to boot on login screen12:04
levolent2ok ill try it ty12:04
levolent2its just a gui? not sure why it would need its own channel12:04
AtuMlevolent2, channel?12:05
levolent2he's suggesting i change the gui and that gui apparently has its own support channel? #lubuntu12:05
k1l_levolent2: the programs behind that gui belong to the Lubuntu project.12:05
AtuMlevolent2, oh I see.. well most users run with default.. I have no idea on how to help anyone with lxde since i don't use it.. i think that would be a good explanation..12:06
levolent2but if its not changing the os other than upper fluff layer whats the suport chan for ?12:06
zambawhat is the best way of installing proprietary drivers on ubuntu these days?12:06
zambawe have a G86 nvidia card we want to get the prop. drivers for12:06
k1l_levolent2: its a special support channel for that gui.12:07
levolent2having its own channel implies its deeper than a skin change12:07
zambain previous versions of ubuntu a dialog popped up telling me that i had drivers that could be installed, but not here? (12.04)12:07
deavzamba you are thinking of the additional drivers applet12:07
k1l_levolent2: again: that packages get support by the community distribution Lubuntu12:07
deavzamba open up the system settings dialogue and select "Additional Drivers"12:07
k1l_levolent2: have a read yourself if that information is not enough for you12:07
AtuMlevolent2, things have to be integrated to work.. if you have lxde just as another gui some things might not work.. ubuntu makes that integration within lubuntu.. i think it's pretty nice to separate it12:07

k0r1nHey Guys, when can i start downloading 13.04? :P12:08
levolent2alright well do you think i should install it ? I'm not sure I want to make any modifications that will require I visit another channel for support.12:08
jribdaze: because his user id is < 1000 iirc12:08
k1l_k0r1n: when its released. or you go with the testing version12:08
zambadeav: aight, thanks12:08
deavk0r1n http://releases.ubuntu.com/13.04/12:09
dazejrib: as I understand it, users with id < 1000 should not be visible (they're considered system users12:09
levolent2if I have issues that means I go to 68 person channel instead of 1,68412:09
jribdaze: erm, yes you are right12:09
AtuMHow can i find out what's causing my system to "block" tty1 - there's no login screen after bootup. i can type but i can login only by accessing tty212:09
k0r1nk1l_: no no I want stable i've seen it should release tomorrow... but nothing definite yet . ?12:09
k1l_k0r1n: then wait for tomorrow!12:09
AtuMor any other tty other than tty112:09
k0r1nk1l_: Can you blame a man for being anxious? Little bit of conformation would be nice :P12:10
k0r1nbut thnx anyway :p12:10
levolent2ok let me ask another way: If I have problems after installing lubuntu that aren't related to skin/gui can I come here for help?12:10
deavlevolent2 it's better to have 68 people that know what they're doing than 1000 that don't know what they're doing. There's seperate channels so people can specialise and focus on their areas of specialisation.12:10
k1l_k0r1n: just wait for the release or try the testing ones if you re that impatient12:10
deavdo you have a problem levolent2?12:11
jribdaze: pastebin your /etc/lightdm/user.conf (actually you see the default is 500 and above are shown)12:11
AtuMHow can i find out what's causing my system to "block" tty1 on ubuntu server 12.10- there's no login screen after bootup. i can type but i can login only by accessing some other tty12:11
k1l_levolent2: if you are that frightened stay with what you are. i think you need to make more experience with ubuntu/linux first12:11
levolent2kil_ atum deav If I have problems after installing lubuntu that aren't related to skin/gui can I come here for help?12:11
AtuMgoing to ubuntu-server.. sorry guys12:12
deavsure levolent212:12

ch1p53tserver version12:12
k0r1nbtw lubuntu.. easy to install and easy to use, just a lot faster :P12:12
ch1p53tis better...12:12
jribdaze: did you change that yourself?12:12
dazejrib: as far as I remember, no. This is Unity on Arch Linux :)12:12
k1l_daze: shouldnt it say /bin/false instead of /bin/fase12:12
dazek1l_: :D12:13
jribdaze: wrong channel :/12:13
k1l_daze: and for that you better ask the arch guys.12:13
dazeok, changed /bin/fase to /bin/false and everything's ok12:14
dazemy blindness... :]12:14
dazeas for the arch guys, they're not supporting unity12:14
jribdaze: this is a lightdm issue12:14
jrib(on an arch install)12:15
dazejrib: no, this was an issue of my inattentiveness12:15
dazeI created the php user by hand when configuring nginx and set the shell to /bin/fase (notice the lack of L) :)12:15
dazeset it to /bin/false now and everything's good12:15
jribdaze: 1) you should ask for support in #archlinux if you are using arch.  This way you get better support.  2) even if the user didn't have /bin/false as a shell minimum-uid should prevent him from being shown.12:16
dazeah, well, then there might be a bug with not respecting the minimum-uid12:16

ubottugmg85: Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) will be the 18th release of Ubuntu, Discussion and support until final release in #ubuntu+112:47
cfhowlettakhilesh, that will reset your download list to tell you what you need and then upgrade will get the packages12:50
usr13sam113101: Matter of opinion is the best you can hope for in the outcome of a question like that.  One is about as good as the other on one hand, on the other one is more convenient or more accessable.12:52
akhileshcfhowlett:ok,but what happens with the previously downloaded packages?do they available?and if i want to install that downloaded packages,what should i have to do?12:52
usr13sam113101: If you have /home on a separate partition, you could do fresh install and leave /home partition as is, but backing up /home is a good idea anyway.  It's up to you really.  One drawback to network upgrade is the danger of loosing power or somehow interrupting the process, in which chase, re-install is usually the only recovery option.  If you consider that, re-install is better.12:54
cfhowlettakhilesh, only the missing packages will be downloaded.  update resets your list, upgrade will download and install the packages12:55
x5ivesLjL: I see 'Installed-Size' and 'Size' is the later the Download-Size?12:55
cfhowlettakhilesh, good luck12:56
akhileshcfhowlett:again? can i upgrade a particular package from terminal?\12:56
usr13sam113101: If you feel like interruption is unlikely, (which in most cases it is), and if you are interested in easy/convienience, network upgrade is a good option.12:58
cfhowlettakhilesh, of course.  sudo apt-update   the sudo apt-get install packagename12:58

meerkatis there no longer an alternate installer for ubuntu? I can find it for 12.04, but not 12.10 and 13.04.15:03
Podsjhutchins_wk : okay :) thanks a lot :)15:03
DJonesmeerkat: Thats right, the alternate installer was dropped starting with 12.1015:05
DJonesmeerkat: You can use the minimal install media though15:05
DJones!minimal | meerkat15:05
ubottumeerkat: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD15:05
PradyumnaFOr direct download of packages there is packages.ubuntu.com15:08

wilee-nileeGeekDude, A update-grub would have found it grub2 reads a sdXX any other customizations of grub?17:00

GeekDudewilee-nilee, "Input signal out of range, please use 1280x1024" something like that17:02
wilee-nileebilly_, Run lspci in the teminal and post the wireless card17:02
wilee-nileebilly_, Or the ethernet17:03
billy_hello wilee-nilee, im using a usb wireless card but i cant even connect with an ethernet cable17:03
wilee-nileeGeekDude, Not sure what you have done to grub to be honest but if it were me I would purge it and reload it you have used a hackneyed approach.17:04
wilee-nileeGeekDude, resolutions are changed here gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub then run a update-grub17:05

wilee-nileebilly_, You have a 32 bit set up?17:06
billy_no its 64 bit17:06
GeekDudewilee-nilee, If I do purge and reload, (Why are all my problems grub related, in nearly every ubuntu install ¬_¬), how would I do it?17:07
billy_i see this17:08
billy_but its saying to install build-essential17:08
billy_i have no internet17:08
dhcii think module snd-usb-audio is responsible perhaps it doesn't want to list the microphone input device, but rather just outputs (didn't even think a webcam would have audio output17:08
billy_im wondering if i need to download all these build-essential packages manually17:08
wilee-nileebilly_, I see this fix, however I believe the quantal stack bricks a 64bit install, so be sure to check on this. http://askubuntu.com/questions/257852/ubuntu-12-04-not-recognizing-atheros-ar8161-gigabit-ethernet17:08

wilee-nileeGeekDude, This  UEFI setup?17:11
GeekDudewilee-nilee, UEFI?17:12
wilee-nileeSkinnyV, You mignt try #ubuntu-server17:12
wilee-nilee!uefi | GeekDude17:12
ubottuGeekDude: UEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware, it is meant as a replacement for the BIOS.

lmatI am working on setting up multiple monitors on my desktop.17:13
wilee-nileeGeekDude, GeekDude,  sudo apt-get purge grub grub-common grub-pc && sudo apt-get install grub-common grub-pc will purge and reload, when asked where grub goes it should be the MBR sdX of the ubuntu install's HD17:14
lmat(KDE) And I got 3 monitors working just fine without any voodoo.17:14
lmatI tried setting up four monitors, and two of the monitors stopped working.17:14
lmatUnfortunately, the settings window is on one of those monitors! What should I do to turn off some extra monitors so I can go about setting up the system again?17:14
GeekDudewilee-nilee, Okay.17:14
wilee-nileeGeekDude, YOU can copy and paste that whole command to the terminal.17:14
GeekDudewilee-nilee, Should I do this from a liveUSB?17:14
wilee-nileeGeekDude, No the desktop, a live cd you would need to chroot in and not use sudo.17:15
wilee-nileeGeekDude, Be sure you are not UEFI, I think you would know it is a different install in general, this will not work in a uefi setup.17:16

GeekDudewilee-nilee, It uses the default BIOS as far as I know. It is a used computer, though. I reformatted the hard drive twice, but I don't know if that matters.17:18
wilee-nileeGeekDude, You are probably not uefi then, it is the newer safeboot by MS.17:18
GeekDudewilee-nilee, The second (currently disconnected) drive is XP17:19
wilee-nileeGeekDude, You can run sudo fdisk -l to confirm the ubuntu HD probably sda that is where grub goes when asked if it is sda, use the space key to tick it.17:20

GeekDudeboth are options17:22
wilee-nileemaheanuu, Have you tried the printers to see if driver is available?17:22
wilee-nileeGeekDude, sda that is the mbr17:22
GeekDudewilee-nilee, What does "mbr" mean? "sda" is the main hard drive, and "sda1" is the ubuntu partition.17:23
Awwlmat, I'm here sorry just saw your message17:23
maheanuuwilee-nilee, the printer is shown installed and sometimes prints but at the moment it is showing a "Pending" notice in the print que and I cannot clear it or do not know how to clear it17:24
wilee-nileeGeekDude, master boot record, the first 512MB of the HD, that is where the bootloader goes in this context sda1 has the other related files already.17:24
GeekDudewilee-nilee, So just "/sda", no partition selected17:24
wilee-nileemaheanuu, do a reboot I have found the printer ti be problematic if you cancel a print in general.17:25
asd123asdqweHello, I have a problem.17:25
wilee-nileeGeekDude, No partition the partition has the files needed already, you are reloading the master boot record that boots the computer.17:25

lmatI guess I know what I'll do for the next couple years ^_^20:04

soulflare3lmat, there are themes for gnome that look like macs20:04
vltburfl: What did you expect?20:04
lmatLet it be known that I don't like Mac for anything. I don't even like the way it looks. I just want the people on my team to think I have a mac...20:04
lmatsoulflare3: yeah, that's what I'm doing now.20:04
burflvlt: i expect it to run the "go install" command, which is the compiler for the Go programming language20:04
soulflare3bjensen, yes, the image files for Ubuntu can be small, it's a base install. If you want other software you install it after20:05
bjensenWhen I make the bootable USB stick the installer wants me to mount the cd etc..but there isn't any..20:05
burflvlt: when i run "go install" alone, it fails because of permissions, but when I "sudo go install" it fails claiming there is no such command20:05
vltburfl: Is golang installed?20:06
burflvlt: it is, hence the permissions failure without sudo20:06

ubottuopasnoo: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE from Lucid onwards) also exist.20:13

lnxslckhello guys20:19
guntbertopasnoo: let me repeat: if there are no services listening on your host they cannot be exploited - so no firewall rules are needed - and those rules for outgoing requests you know from windows are rather unnecessary when "everyone" can know what every program does20:19

ubuntuaddictedjavier__, i wouldn't change GFX drivers yet22:11

Dr_willisjavier__,  i just use the nvidia-settings tool  to tweak overscan. or tell the tv to not use overscan (not all tvs have that option)22:12

soulflare3javier__, you are able to perform a distribution upgrade from within Ubuntu22:20

javier__ok. can I use a boot thumb drive?22:35
mongddssc: xrandr is included by default. maybe you meant arandr?22:36

bazhangand arandr is the front end22:39
ddsscrighto, so how do I check which one I got installed?22:40
bazhangddssc, arandr you need to install22:40
ddsscbazhang, why?22:41
bazhangddssc, its the gui22:42
ddsscbazhang, can't I check it in the console?22:42
bazhangddssc, which version did you need22:42

bazhangddssc, why those22:43
ddsscbazhang, coz tutuor sed so :f22:43
bazhangddssc, and thats to accomplish what22:43
OerHeksddssc, you are lucky that article shows howto undo the changes, it might not work propperly.22:43
ddsscbazhang, have hdmi working on optimus, hopefully.22:44
ddsscOerHeks, if you know something that does work properly, please do share22:45
OerHeksddssc, see answer #2 why not use xorg edgers repo ? https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa22:45
ddsscOerHeks, ok I'll try. is that repo for 32 or 64 bit ubuntu?22:46
=== josh_ is now known as agliodbs
tyrogddssc: both22:47
OerHeksddssc, both. If you have optimus, you would have a 64 bit processor.22:47
ddssctyrog, ok. hope this won't fubar my system ... :22:47
tyrogddssc: dont upgrade from that repository. Only install the nvidia driver from it, then disable the repository again22:48
ddsscOerHeks, yes I got 64 bit proc with ubunzu 12.10 64 bit installed22:48
OerHekswell, it is easy to reverse with ppa-purge22:48
lnxslckafter installing blueman, my wallpaper function stopped working, now i only have a white wallpaper22:49
olmariso... stupid Q's but is there an hourly ETA for 13.04? =)22:50
ddsscOerHeks, so with that repo I dont have to do any of the file editing turning off x etc, like in tutorial?22:50
lnxslckolmari, you can download a daily build22:50
ThiagovfarIs there an ubuntu phone-specific channel?22:51

foobArrrI have this line ( 0 * * * * /bin/cp /home/foo/bar/foobar.gz /home/foo/bar/foobar_$(/bin/date +%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M).gz ) in my crontab, but it doesn't work. the command works, if I run it manually. 2 questions: 1) is there any (obvious) mistake in that line? 2) how do I debug crontab entries in gerneral?22:51
Thiagovfarbazhang: Thank you22:52
lnxslckolmari, yes they are22:52
olmarioh hmm.. :)22:52
olmariI suppose I could do that22:53
Dr_willisfoobArrr,  i find putting a complex command in a script. then running the scrfipt from crontab helps22:54
foobArrrk, sounds like a good idea22:55
ddsscOerHeks, I added the repo and updated and can't find package nvidia-graphics-drivers-31922:58
OerHeksddssc, raring quantal precise, should be there.22:59
ddsscOerHeks, Ive no idea what that is... some dependency?23:00
ddsscah ok23:01
ddsscim on quantal23:02
ddsscOerHeks, I did: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa23:03

Draxelishey it's the April 25th :) when is ubuntu 13.04 ready for download?23:06
lnxslckDraxelis, check ubuntu.com23:07
OerHeksddssc, you cannot just install the driver on its own, upgrade takes all dependencies.23:07

PigOnTheWingswilee-nilee, xchat-indicator dooesnt work like it worked in 12.0423:11
wilee-nileePigOnTheWings, The what does close it mean, it should not be still running.23:11
PigOnTheWingswilee-nilee, I set up xchat to minimize on close23:11
wilee-nileePigOnTheWings, How?23:12
PigOnTheWingswilee-nilee, well, I did that on 12.04 now I cant do that.23:12
PigOnTheWingswilee-nilee, on 12.1023:12
wilee-nileePigOnTheWings, How did you set it to minimize on close, I use xchat and now hexchat I have never seen that option.23:14
wilee-nileePigOnTheWings, YOu might try #xchat23:14
ddsschow long does this package upgrade usually last?23:18
wilee-nileeddssc, In what context?23:19
ddsscas in apt-get upgrade23:19
PascatI'm seeking to sell my old laptop with Ubuntu 12.10 LTS, is there a way to set it to a sort of 'no user setup' so the next time it boots it asks for someone's username/password? Sort of like pre-installed-zero config?23:19
wilee-nileeddssc, DEpends on what gets upgraded, are you asking about a release upgrade?23:19
wilee-nilee!remastersys | Pascat23:20
ddsscwell... I did sudo apt-get upgrade in console and now it's downloading everything but the kitchen sink :)23:20

ddsscwilee-nilee, does not compute23:22
ddsscwilee-nilee, nvidia 31923:22
wilee-nileeddssc, Really you don't know what a fresh install is?23:22
ddsscwilee-nilee, Im trying to locate my left mouse button23:23
Pascatits on the left of the right mouse button!23:23
wilee-nileeddssc, You are not making sense.23:23

lnxslckafter installing blueman, my wallpaper function stopped working, now i only have a white wallpaper. can someone help ?23:25
ddsscone thing I like about ubuntu tho, is that it actually shuts down when you tell it to23:25
Slideyany reports of people with failing bind9 servers today?23:26
ddsscOerHeks, so I installed the nvidia-319 pack like you said... now my unity is borked. can't even see the left side menu or any taskbar or icons... nice23:27
ddsschow do I restore my desktop? i got only blank desktop in unity. but right click menu works23:33
wilee-nileeSlidey, Have seen none here since being on all day, not really a place people might claim that though.23:33
sabgentonis 13.04 coming in the next 24 hrs?23:33
sabgentonSory is it still schedualed?23:33
fatloserhello gents, i have a question i'm not sure is appropriate for this channel, but since i do use ubuntu on this system , perhaps its relevant. My question has to do with data recovery. I took a 500 gb disk which stored a copy of some data which is important to me (mostly pictures) and repartitioned it, installing ubuntu to it (a 100 gb partition) , yet i still have 400 gigs of empty unpartitioned space left. Now my other disk failed,23:33
wilee-nileesabgenton, more or less probably23:33
fatloserSo the only way i have to have a chance to recover some data is by recovering it from this disk which has been repurposed for almost one year now23:34
sabgentonwilee-nilee: thx23:34
fatloseri'm hoping that in those 400 gigs of unpartitioned space something is left.23:34
fatlosercan anybody help me?23:34
ddsscfatloser, use some recovery tool23:35
fatloseri'm currently running dd to clone the disk to an image, but dont know whats next23:35
fatloserddssc: can you suggest one for ubuntu?23:35
Slideywilee-nilee clutching at straws really23:35
ddsscfatloser, nope. I can only suggest for win23:35
Slideywilee-nilee cheers anyway23:35
fatloserhm. :(23:36
wilee-nileefatloser, Testdisk? however your description is not very good.23:36
ddsscfatloser, plug your disk into a win machine and get this http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Back-Up-and-Recovery/EASEUS-Data-Recovery-Wizard-Free-Edition.shtml23:37
wilee-nileeexact details time and use of what discs when how and where23:37
fatloseri wish i had a windows machine around..23:37
ddsscwell Im sure in the whole linux world you will find a data recovery tool...23:38
ddsscbut then again, I wasn't able to find drivers for an nvidia card that work, so ymmv23:38
wilee-nileefatloser, a fresh partition/hd wipe with no more use can be recovered at times23:38
n-iCeguys, any idea? thanks http://askubuntu.com/questions/270084/how-can-i-share-the-internet-connection-via-wi-fi-direct23:39
fatloserits not exactly fresh, as i said... http://tinypic.com/r/2uo3v9d/4 this is the current parition map, and the reiserfs parition is partially full with data23:39
ddsscmaaan... why isn't there a start terminal option on right mouse click? or open in terminal or whatever...23:40
fatloseri'm hoping that the data i'm after lives in the unpartioned area, and is thus left intact23:41
fatloserbut thats just me being optimist.23:41
wilee-nileefatloser, You could try testdisk, but you will get unnamed data you will have to sift it if anything comes up at all.23:45
fatloserhm. since i'm after my pictures, wilee-nilee's suggestion of testdisk led me to photorec. i'll give that a spin, since it seems to ignore FS issues and concentrate on raw data on the medium23:45
wilee-nileeyeah photorec is it23:45
fatloserif this works i'm gonna be overjoyed.23:47
fatloserall of my lifetime's pictures - lost.23:47
sybiani got some problems to play darmok with the default ubuntu player23:47
