javierhello. I have an nvidia geforce gt640 and running 12.10 fresh install. can someone help me install the 310.44 nvidia driver00:01
tyrogddssc: What have you done?00:02
ddsscjavier, good luck with that. do you happen to also run an optimus system?00:02
ddssctyrog, what the other guy told me. added his repo. updated. upgraded. installed nvidia-319 . fubar'd00:02
tyrogI told you not to upgrade from xorg edgers00:02
javierno. why do you say good luck?00:02
tyrogYou did it, you risked your system. Now ppa purge, or reinstall ubuntu00:03
ddssctyrog, how do I ppa purge?00:03
tyrogBoot ubuntu into a terminal with network00:03
ddssctyrog, aye. got terminal.00:04
ddsscfor now00:04
ddsscit tends to throw random whatevertheheck errors tho00:04
javierin the reading that I have done, which was sporadic at best, I read that I can update the headers and the kernel and all should be right with the world. of course I have read a lot of stuff that wasn't accurate as well00:04
tyrogddssc: now 'sudo apt-get install ppa-purge'00:05
javiershould I just add the xswat repos and just grab the nvidia current instead?00:05

ddssctyrog, got it00:05
jmiteHas anybody been able to get AMD Catalyst (fglrx) drivers working on an AMD/Intel Hybrid laptop in 13.04?00:05
ddsscnow what?00:05
tyrog'sudo ppa-purge ppa:xorg-edgers'00:06

tyrogjavier: Install Ubuntu 13.04, it is being released today00:10
javierI used wubi since I am not all that familiar with installing and setup from an iso. so how do I upgrade to 13.04 from 12.1000:11
=== jesus is now known as Guest35356
tyrogThen go to the "Additional Drivers" tab in the Software Sources software, install nvidia-310-updates driver, reboot, done!00:12
ddssctyrog, ok thanks. unity seems to have unfucked itself now :)00:12
ddsscpardon the french00:12
tyrogddssc: lol00:12

bkovacsUbuntu 13.04 release channel which one?00:17
tyrogbkovacs: #ubuntu-release-party00:17
tyrogddssc: then install by yourself the nvidia-graphics-driver that matches 319.12 version00:18
=== Guest35356 is now known as xexu
ddssctyrog, I do that through apt-get ?00:18
RyanTGI take it 13.04 is still rolling out to the mirrors.  I haven't found one with anything but beta-2 yet.00:19
ddssctyrog, because if I do apt-get install without upgraded repo I get "package not found" error00:19
ntzrmtthihu777My card is 00:14.2 Audio device [0403]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) [1002:4383] (rev 40)00:19
tyrogddssc: yes. 'sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install nvidia-graphics-drivers-319' . see if this works00:20
ddssctyrog, ok00:20
tyrogRyanTG: Currently the ISOs are being tested00:21
ddssctyrog, unable to locate package nvidia-graphics-drivers-31900:22
ddssctyrog, I do see nvidia-319 and nvidia-319 dev and nvidia-settings-319 . I installed nvidia-319 before00:22

xexuAnyone here knows how monitorize IP addresses in a public chat, using Tor? I need help with that program00:25
xexuI have everything configured, but in the logbox doesn't appear anything00:25
blob4000is there a channel for questions about / problems with 13.04?00:27
ddsscxexu, Tor is not a "program for monitorizing IP adresses"00:27
wilee-nileeblob4000, #ubuntu+1 till tomorrow00:28
xexuis it not?? Oh sorry...00:28
xexuI work in a public chat, so I need monitorizing the activity of "bad" users00:28
OerHeksxexu that should be done server side00:29
tyrogddssc: installed?00:29
ddssctyrog, now my unity is fubar'd as per before. no left side/top menu. I can only use right mouse menu. also still Driver Unknown Experience Standard.00:29
tyrogddssc: after installing the driver, reboot00:30
ddssctyrog, yes this is after reboot00:30
xexummm so is there any program that can do that??00:30
tyrogddssc: Disable xorg-edgers (DONT purge it)00:30
ddsscxexu, there are irc scripts that can ban users when using blacklisted words. google it00:30
ddssctyrog, didn't do anything other than install nvidia-319 and reboot00:31
ddsscalso nvidia-settings-31900:32
tyrognow disable the xorg edgers ppa without purging it00:32
tyrogand add this one: ppa:canonical-x/x-staging00:32
javierhow do i upgrade from 12.10 to 13.04 or do I have to wait until tomorrow00:32
dr_willis!upgrade | javier00:32
ubottujavier: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade00:32
xexuddssc, I'm reffering to a chat on the internet, like a webpage, there are a lot of users, and most of them have 2 or 3 accounts, so I want to ban them with their IP, cause they have different nicks00:32
tyrogjavier: Better wait as upgrades are being tested right now00:33
ddsscxexu, well that depends on your chat software, doesn't it?00:33
tyrogddssc: sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:someppa/ppa to remove xorg-edgers00:34
ddssctyrog, sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa  ?00:35
xexuddsc, I don't know if you use facebook, and their apps, so facebook has a few games, with a chat also, it works with flash, and the IP, that I can monitorize with tcpdump are dynamic IP (I guess), so I want to know if there are any method to monitorized the static IP, for banning the bad users.00:37
ddssctyrog, added ppa:canonical-x/x-stagin00:37
tyrognow 'sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' then reboot00:38
ddsscxexu, tyrog, sigh... here goes00:39
junkNownIf I install proprietary drivers without the use of package management, is that going to cause probems when I update ubuntu?00:39
Rolenunlol, got sound working and nearly jumped out of the room :D00:39
ddsscxexu, sry no idea about that. unless you're running the app on your system I don't think you can monitor other users bro :)00:39
javierhi again. I have 310.14 installed. How do I correct the overscan issue I am having?00:40
xexuok, thanks for your help ;)00:40
Rolenunnote to self....changing the audio output to the correct output while system is at 300% volume is not a good thing ....00:40
xexuI have monitorized their Ip with wireshark filtering the domain00:40
xexubut i'll try00:40
GinTonicoolhi ,guys; in linux system ,is there a sofeware which  can works like IDM00:40
ddsscxexu, try #wireshark00:41
junkNownIf I install proprietary graphics drivers without package management, could there be problems when ubuntu updates packages?00:41
tyrogjunkNown: nvidia or ati?00:43
junkNowntyrog: ati00:43
tyrogjunkNown: No problem. Follow the tutorial to manually install the drivers that is in the ubuntu community documentation00:43
tyrogby the way, why do you want to install the drivers manually?00:44
junkNowntyrog: I can manually install them and they work fine, but when installed with apt, unity breaks and won't load.00:44
junkNowntyrog: but even if I get them working manually, when I install ubuntu updates.... it breaks it completely00:45
tyrogjunkNown: what is the gfx card? ubuntu version? and driver versions you are installing?00:45
xexujoin /wireshark00:45
junkNowntyrog: by breaks it completely, i mean i get a blank purple screen right after grub that doesn't go away. The gfx card is raedon hd 6950, ubuntu 12.10. I install the latest, 13.4 catalyst driver.00:46
junkNowntyrog: another thing worth mentioning, my cpu has integrated graphics. I'm concerned that could be part of the problem.00:47
GinTonicoolhi ,guys; in linux system ,is there a sofeware which  can works like IDM ,thank you00:47
GeekDubeAnyone want to help me diagnose a random crash event? I was playing minecraft, and then BAM, it went to a terminal-esque screen (light gray on black), and said some things. I checked the system for log files, and found the relevant log: http://pastebin.com/daMRet8A00:48
javierso it does not appear that I have an overscan slider in the nvidia 310.14 driver from the software sources installed driver00:48
tyrogjunkNown: Did you follow the instructions from the documentation?00:48
tyrogubuntu community documentation, i mean00:49
xexugintonicool, have you tried jdownloader??00:49
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto00:49
GinTonicooljdownloader ?i've heard it00:49
GinTonicoolXEXU,does jdownloader work well ?00:50
tyrogjunkNown: start reading from here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI#Manually_installing_Catalyst_12.6.2C_special_case_for_Intel.2BAC8-AMD_hybrid_graphics00:50
ddssctyrog, updated. upgraded. still same empty deskto unknown driver. :/00:51
GinTonicooljdownloader works in wine ?00:51
xexuI've never tried IDM, but jdownloader i think it's similar00:51
tyrogddssc: sorry, cant help you further, as I don't have an optimus card :P00:51
xexuYou can install jdownloader without wine00:52
ddssctyrog, when running update I got many 404 errors. for canonical-x/x-whatever in particular00:52
junkNowntyrog: that is the method I have used. Like I said, it works fine until I download any ubuntu software updates00:52
xexuIt has support in ubuntu00:52
GinTonicoolxexu, can jdownloader use proxy?00:52
javierany ideas?00:52
tyrogjunkNown: Yep, each time a new update to the kernel arrives, it should break00:52
tyrogbecause it doesnt create a KMS00:52
n-iCeany idea in how to share my internet with wifi direct?00:53
xexuyes GinTonicool00:54
junkNowntyrog: So is there any easy solution other than avoid updating the kernel? If I uninstall manually, update, then reinstall.... will that work?00:54
tyrogjunkNown: Try the method right above from that00:54
tyrogbasically these are the steps00:54
tyrogsudo apt-get install dh-make dh-modaliases execstack00:55
tyrogsudo sh amd-driver-installer-13-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/quantal00:55
johnjohn1011so i want to clone my hard drive.  is it best to do it off a live cd?00:55
tyrogthen it should give you an error. If it does, do 'sudo apt-get -f install'00:56
javiertyrog do you know how I can fix the overscan? I do not have the slider in the nvidia settings00:56
GinTonicoolxexu ,thank you ,i'll try00:56
tyrogjavier: No :P , I don't have nvidia card, sorry00:56
xexuok your welcome ;)00:56
javierok, thanks00:56
junkNowntyrog: alright i'll give this a shot! thanks00:57
javierdo you happen to know why i get a hang when i use nvidia-settings --assing CurrentMetaMode = "DFP-1: 1920x1080 {ViewPortOut=1850x1055+25+40}"00:58
Ben64javier: it should be a setting on the tv00:58
ddssctyrog, now I can't even do purge-ppa. woopty doo00:58
javierthere is not a setting on the tv00:58
Ben64javier: there is if you have a good tv00:59
javieri have a samsung and the options are just scan or 16:900:59
tyrogddssc: whats the problem with ppa-purge? what are you purging?00:59
javierthere isn't an overscan option or a picture resize00:59
javierwhen I was running ubuntu before there was a slider in the nvidia settings manager to adjust the overscan, and there isn't one now01:00
Ben64it's not labeled that, but there is a setting01:00
Ben64i have a samsung tv01:00
ddssctyrog, xorg-edgers obviously. but now the other thing you told me to add and upgrade to is throwing errors.01:02
ddssctyrog, canonical-x/x-staging 404 no found etc01:02
SkinnyVAnybody familiar with vsftp? I'm trying to figure out how to edit it so I can access the WWW folder and upload file there through my FTP client01:03
tyrogddssc: that wasn't supposed to happen. Its a normal ppa, just like any other :P01:03
javierwell i just went thru all the options and the only one that refers to picture size are as I listed. I know it is an overscan issue because in 4:3 the sides and tops are still cut off01:03
tyrogAnd concerning xorg edgers, you cant purge it, because you disabled it. Re-enable it and purge01:03
ddssctyrog, well... it's happening. Warning apt-get update failed for some reason. FOR. SOME. REASON. :))01:03
Ben64javier: yep, which is why you have to tell the tv to not cut off the edges01:03
javierok. I have a samsung 56 inch01:04
javierand not sure how to do that01:04
ddsscfuck it. I'll just use windows... been mucking about 4 days with this thing with no luck. now I'll most likely have to install ubuntu again just so I can try that tutorial thing I should've done in the first place...01:04
Ben64javier: what model01:04
tyrogddssc: You are giving up too soon01:05
ddssctyrog, ye well 4 days trying to get my graph card to work are a lot in my world :F01:05
sybiani need help with darmok01:05
fyksenI have just installed Ubuntu 13.04. Should I ask my question here, or in ubuntu+1?01:05
javierits a samsung lcd01:05
tyrogddssc: The drivers are in beta. There are people with issues on the web, some of them solved. Just do as they did01:06
Ben64ddssc: what card01:06
ddsscgeforce525M , optimus01:06
Ben64well that explains why you want the newest drivers01:06
fyksenI have just installed 13.04. Everything is set up, but I can't change the mouse sensitivity under mouse settings. Just the Left/right and the toubbleclick01:07
tyrogfyksen: +1 , ubuntu 13.04 is not officially released yet01:07
ddsscactually I just want my hdmi to work. don't care about nvidia or 3d or games or anything..01:07
fyksentyrog, ty01:07
junkNowntyrog: This method didn't work either, log in screen comes up, then log in and I get no unity. :(01:07
tyrogjunkNown: do you have the package 'linux-headers-generic' installed?01:07
tyrogi forgot about that one :P01:08
junkNowntyrog: yeah :(01:08
Ben64junkNown: whats the output of uname -a01:08
tyrogjunkNown: did sudo aticonfig --initial ?01:08

tyrogjunkNown: do 'sudo amdconfig --adapter=all --initial -f' instead01:09
tyrogwhats the output?01:09
javierso is this cutoff because of the hdmi or can it be resolved using a dvi?01:10
GinTonicoolcan jdownloader work in debian,and which edition can work in debian 2.6.32?01:10
junkNowntyrog: Uninitialised file found, configuring.01:10

=== jagger|away is now known as jagger
Ben64javier: hdmi is dvi, but if you have dvi on the tv, it probably won't cut that off01:11
Ben64javier: but i'm telling you, there is a setting in the tv somewhere to disable overscan01:11
javierjust looked. I don;t have one01:11
javierman i wish there was. i have been thru every setting and there isnt one01:12

javierso i need to do it at the pc as I have done when i was using my built in ati01:12
MavrikBen64, um, ATi devices have overscan issues even on Windows, and have to be fixed by settings in drivers01:12
Mavriknothing to do with TVs01:12
Mavrik(most TVs don't have overscan settings for HDMI anyway)01:12
ddsscit just dawned on me. it's 2013 and linux is still not desktop ready. :(01:12
Ben64ddssc: untrue01:13
ddsscBen64, it's pretty true for me01:13
Ben64Mavrik: actually, almost every tv by default cuts off 5% on every side01:13
junkNowntyrog: X Error of failed request:  BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)01:13
Ben64ddssc: it's because the dual gpu thing was tacked on and is different on many manufacturers01:13
MavrikBen64, mhm, but ATi devices have some additional overscan enabled by default01:13
Mavrikno idea why01:13
tyrogjunkNown: now that you have done that command, reboot again01:13
Mavrika common problem :\01:13
tyrogthen come here tell the result01:14
ddsscBen64, yes, that and : http://linuxfonts.narod.ru/why.linux.is.not.ready.for.the.desktop.current.html01:14
ubottuPlease do not fall prey to, or spread FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) - it is not welcome here!  Please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fear,_uncertainty_and_doubt01:14
tyrogddssc: stop bitching plz :P . Your problem is nvidia's fault, not linus' or canonical01:15
tyrogddssc: why don't you ask on the nvidia channel?01:16
ddssctyrog, I beg to differ. there's just too many people 'bitching' at linux as a desktop machine. I've been using it as server tho and have no complaints of course01:16
ddsscdesktop system that is01:16
tyrogddssc: What statistics support that 'too many' argument?01:16
ddssctyrog, oh I don't know, irl I've met at least 5 people who tried linux as desktop and failed miserably. and I don't even hang around linux-y people :)01:17
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!01:17
tyrogBy the way, if you feel Linux is not ready for desktop, why are you testing it for desktop?01:17
ddsscwill do np01:17
ddssctyrog, was thinking of using it as my main os.01:18
tyrogddssc: Many people here are using Ubuntu as their ONLY desktop os01:18
junkNowntyrog: still looks the same. no unity.01:18
tyrogSo their opinion must count, doesn't it?01:18
Mavriktake it somewhere else01:18
ssfjhhhow to update paperwhite to 5.3.5?01:20
tyrogjunkNown: The solution proposed in the Hybrid AMD/Intel section of the tutorial is probably your best bet then :P01:21
tyrogjunkNown: What driver were you using before 13.4 came out today?01:21
sam113101is 13.04 out already?01:22
tyrogto make clear: AMD 13.4 driver xD01:22
junkNowntyrog: I don't remember01:23
tyrogjunkNown: was it proprietary, or opensource one?01:23
junkNowntyrog: proprietary for sure01:23
tyrogfrom repository, or AMD website?01:24
johnjohn1011if i have an ext4 partition, will it be possible to expand it?01:24
tyrogjohnjohn1011: providing you have space for doing that, yes01:24
johnjohn1011i am trying to move my ubuntu system to another hard drive. wife got me a 2 tb drive01:25
johnjohn1011i have no clue what to do. i don't want to reinstall01:25
junkNowntyrog: From AMD website, I had installed it manually without creating the deb package files. It worked fine until I updated ubuntu this morning.01:25
Ben64johnjohn1011: gparted can copy a partition from one drive to another01:25
johnjohn1011so do the copy and then resize after that?01:26
Ben64johnjohn1011: yeah, then you'd need to reinstall grub, and either take out the old drive or change UUIDs01:26
tyrogjunkNown: Yep. You have to do the same for 13.4, unfortunately.01:26
johnjohn1011old drive is six years old.01:27
SpaceghostHello, I am having a problem with a package of firefox, can someone help me if I put the pastebin with the errors?01:27
SpaceghostHere there is.01:27
johnjohn1011would it be better to use somthing like clonezilla?01:27
junkNowntyrog: So then, should I always uninstall the amd drivers manually before I do any kernel updates and then reinstall? Would that be a workaround?01:27
Ben64johnjohn1011: nah01:28
Ben64junkNown: you'd have to install amd after kernel01:28
Ben64junkNown: or... get the drivers from apt-get so they update automagically01:29
johnjohn1011ben64: ok.  i guess i'll download gparted01:29
Ben64johnjohn1011: but if it's your boot partition, you need to do that from a livecd01:29
junkNownBen64: :( this is what i just went through with tyrog... apt-get doesn't work... manually creating deb packages doesn't work... nothing works except installing manually01:30
johnjohn1011Ben64: i figured i would use a live cd01:30
Ben64junkNown: why doesn't apt-get work?01:30
johnjohn1011i saw some stuff about using dd01:30

ubottuUbuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, from 12.10 an up install the "ubuntu-gnome-desktop" package. From 11.04 to 12.04, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic01:43

ubottuSpaceghost: Do 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/RootSudo01:43

M_P_Dcan anybody tell me what a good resource for learning the command line is03:22
sgo11Ben64, kind of. I have some sound extension which show music control and status under sound icon. something like that. I used to it. I am not sure if this will break that extension or not.03:22
wwwdotcomCan i assume that file has been downloaded in a area of hard disk where there are bad sectors?03:24
sgo11it's actually gnome-shell extension, just related to sound. integrate music with the sound icon. something like that.03:24

dr_willisSpaceghost:  same as youy remove any other package.. look at the errors it said..  conflicts with 'kubuntu-firefox-installer'03:43
cfhowlettSpaceghost you're in ubuntu?  but you have a kubuntu package?03:43
SpaceghostI installed Kubuntu.03:43
dr_willisperhaps you should just RUN the kubuntu-firefox-installer tool?03:43
dr_willisive never even notic3eed kubuntu had such a tool03:44
dr_willisbut the postings you gave seem rather clear.. the firefox.desktop file is in both packages.. so its conflicting03:44
dr_willisI bet if you  just had the kubuntu-fireefox-installer installed the forefox icon would actually run some install script to install the real firefox03:44
dr_willis(i am guessing here)03:45

cfhowlettDr_Anon, losing your apps?  as in they're gone?  or just not displayed?03:53
Dr_Anonhaha, well im far from rude, very friendly and eager to learn03:54

cfhowlettbassgeisha, no need to erase.  just format the partition03:55
Morph4meyou mean Firefox Web Browser ?03:56
SpaceghostMorph4me: where I put that?03:56
Dr_Anonhow would i go about booting with the installed ubuntu and not the usb? i know when i orginally installed and started up i moved the usb stick up in the boot order03:57
cfhowlettDr_Anon, hit the boot loader.  remove the usb and priortize the HD03:57
dr_willisSpaceghost:  both those packages are installing the same file. and thus conflict. remove the kubuntu-firefox-installer package03:57
bassgeishaformat it when it boots from the cd?03:57
Dr_Anonim pretty sure it freezes up or maybe even cut off when i pulled the usb earlier.03:58
huttanDr_Anon: If you went through the install procedure. Just remove the usb stick and down prio it in bios if needed. It should boot fine from ur harddrive03:58
Morph4mefrom an install default is /usr/share/applications/Firefox Web Browser ...why change or should i say rename it ?03:58
cfhowlettbassgeisha, correct.  just make sure you format only the partition you want to install ubuntu to ... important if you are dual booting03:58
Dr_Anonso take out the usb whenever i cut the computer off?03:58
bassgeishanothing else on here afaik03:58
bassgeishaclean slate03:58
cfhowlettDr_Anon, you need not remove the usb if the bios is set to ignore it03:58
cfhowlettbassgeisha, then format and install away!03:58
Dr_Anonso i can choose in bios to ignore the usb and boot hd?03:59
Spaceghostdr_willis: can you say me how to do that?03:59
Dr_Anonand it will boot ubuntu over windows?03:59
dr_willisSpaceghost:  apt-get remove packagename    same as you do any other package03:59
cfhowlettDr_Anon, when you reboot, after power-on, self test, you hit the F12 key (on my Dell anyway.  maybe different for you).  that brings up the bios.  Go to boot, reorder things as you need.  then save and reboot04:00
cfhowlettDr_Anon, boot over windows ?  ummm, means what?  and you did NOT use the windows installer (wubi), did you?04:00
Dr_Anonis there a way for me to backup the apps and user info i have now before rebooting so that ill have it after?04:00
Dr_Anonno i dual booted though04:01
cfhowlettDr_Anon, easiest way is to set a dedicated /home partition04:01
Dr_Anonand boot over windows as in higher priority04:01

cfhowlettDr_Anon, helps to do spring cleaning ... run sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get clean   to clear out your cache04:04

Dr_Anondo u think ill be okay to just boot from the hard drive? i did the dual boot but it says xp AND ubuntu 12.10 is on this computer04:08
dr_willisif an existing user deletes all their unity setting files... they would get defaults04:08

wwwdotcomI am thinking of buying a laptop. It would be UEFI enabled and having pre installed windows 8. I have plans to dual boot ubuntu with windows 8 but i heard something like UEFI locks up boot sector and no other OS can be installed with it. What would you think should i go for it?04:25
dr_williswwwdotcom: its not uefi that does that.. its the 'secure boot' feature  i belive.04:25
wwwdotcomi see04:26

doomlordwhats the logic behind mount or sshfs needing a directory that you map to to already exist.. i would have thought it would make more sense that the directory springs into existance after you say mount/sshfs and ceases to exist after you umount05:28

doomlordi saw the ability to use scrollwheel on the launcher icons to switch windows... i liked the look of that... i always missed scrollwheel on the desktop pager ( i use that all the time in classic gnome) - it would be nice if the unity switcher icon did that05:37
dr_willisunity has a great many new tweaks/polished features in 13.0405:37
doomlordi like unity overall because of globalmenu05:37

ubottuUpstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/07:51

bazhanghyperreal, no07:57

nikolamso it is confirmed, it is teamviewer bug on linux when connecting to windows08:46
nikolamANub, it works when TV is disconnected.. when connected with clipboard, it also does not work.08:47
hydrox24There's a good workaround (though when I say good, it sucks). Just paste the text into a text file, upload the file to the client and copy it out of the text file in teamviewer on the client.08:47

k1l_Neozonz|Disc: it doesnt work that way you want.08:51

hangman5950idk man I just open my computer click network and their it is in windows but not in network it will let me see the network but let me onto the server11:42
olegbhangman5950: you need a user to login (or setup anonymous access)11:42
Rahaat last i  will learn both but know for the firt which one11:43
ActionParsniphangman5950: try filezilla under Windows11:43
ActionParsniphangman5950: or even Firefox, handles it well11:43
Dr_willisRaha,  if you have totally zero programing experience.. start with python11:43
RahaDR_willis i found that its #kali11:43
anewwhen you set a crontab, is it set from the moment you make it? like if i set it every 12 hours, is it every 12 hours from the moment i save or is it set to some internal clock11:44
hangman5950but how? I am new to ubuntu I didnt connect to a network last time i had this installed on my laptop11:44
Rahai didnt really programming pro, but k know all concepts11:45
jribanew: internal clock11:45
ActionParsniphangman5950: install filezila and connect to the IP you have on the virtual system11:45
anewjrib so when i set it for every 6 hours, it's every 6 hours sstarting from what time ?11:46
jribanew: no.11:46
ActionParsniphangman5950: if you set the network as bridged rather than NAT, it will take an IP from your router and seem like another PC attached to your LAN11:46
hangman5950when I install on VM shoul i use Virtual disc image, virtual machine disk, or virtual hard disk11:46
Rahai think it's better to learn python first, but there is a lot of scrips in liux by perl so i am confuse to choose11:46
anewno ?11:46
jribanew: I'm not sure what you want me to say.11:47
ActionParsniphangman5950: surely this si already done11:47
ActionParsniphangman5950: if you are unsure, the defaults are fine11:47
hangman5950yeah but I want to make sure I chose corectly11:47
anewjrib no what ... if i set it for every 6 hours, it's every 6 hours starting from what time11:47
hangman5950well whats the differnece in them11:47
jribanew: you gave two alternatives.  1) it's from the moment you set it or 2) it's internal time (which is ambiguous but presumably, is not the same as 1.  I said it was (2) and you asked me if it was (1).  Here, maybe the man page clears it up for you: Commands  are  executed by cron(8) when the minute, hour, and month of year fields match the current time, and when at least one of  the  two day  fields (day of11:48
jribmonth, or day of week) match the current time11:48

cristian_cbut I get an error11:50
Rahaperl is more easy yes?? it takes a long time to finish python and go to perl!11:50
jribanew: when you say something like every two hours (*/2), that just gets translated to 0,2,4,6,...,2211:50
cristian_cAny ideas?11:50
anewyes but my second question is not yes or no.  if i set it for every x hours or every 30 minutes... .it's every 30 minutes starting frmo what time11:50
Dr_williscristian_c,  check out airdroid and you will never want to mess with bluetooth11:50
anewright now it's 1400, if i set a crontab for every 2 hours, when will it run11:50
sixbbis there a channel for mirror operators?11:50
jribanew: see my last reply11:50
cristian_cDr_willis, but I have not to connect through internet11:51
anewno i mean .... i must be asking this weird11:51
cristian_cDr_willis, but locally11:51
Dr_williscristian_c,  no local router for both to connect to? shame.11:51
anewjrib if i set it for every 12 hours, when will the first crontab run.  12 hours from the exact moment i hit save or 12 hours from .... (fill in the blank if you know)11:51
Dr_willisanew,  it dosent care when you 'save'11:51
jribanew: do you understand when it would run if you set the hour field to "0,2,4,6,...,22" (with the ... appropriately filled in)?11:51
anewyes but what determines what is an hour !11:52
moppersthe system clock11:52
jribanew: can you answer my last question?  I'm not sure where you are confused11:52
starbuck33hey, anybody having trouble seeing the facebook contacts in pidgin?11:52
torch1it's not every 12 hours. It's at 12 o,clock11:53
Draxelisanyone use NOD32?11:53
ActionParsnipstarbuck33: have you tried renaming the pidgin profile folder after closing the app completely and setting up a new profile (just to test)11:53
anewtorch1 so if i set it for every 3 hours, it's not every 3 hours... it's at 12,3, 6 etc11:53
anewwith those numbers being the time on the server11:54
Dr_willis24 hrs /3 => ever X oclock11:54
Dr_willisevery X Oclock11:54
anewso if i save the crontab at 11:59 and make it for every hour, the crontab will run in one minute ?11:54
shapeZOMG: http://releases.ubuntu.com/raring/11:54
jribanew: yes (for the third time)11:54
Dr_willisanew,  possibily11:54
anewpossibly or yes ....11:54
ActionParsnipshape: #ubuntu+1 for anything raring please11:54
torch1sorry, missed the first part where you said /1211:54
Dr_willisthe time dosent matter.. cron is not acurate to the 'second' either.. i recall it has a bit of a leeway11:55
ActionParsnipshape: it will also be EOL before Quantal, so I wouldn't get massively excited11:55
anewok so cron is not being run in x hours, it's actually being run by server time which is the fields ur setting11:55
anewi get it now thx11:55
starbuck33ActionParsnip: nope, but i tried to remove tha account and made a new one.... the thing is, if i show ofline buddies it shows all the fb contacts, and some of them are online... but it doesnt't show the online fb buddies when when the "show offline contacts" option is not activated in pidgin11:55
ActionParsnipstarbuck33: not a new account, a new profile folder for all of Pidgin. There is a difference11:57
starbuck33ok, i try that11:57
ActionParsnipstarbuck33: close pidgin and run:   mv ~/.purple ~/.purple_old11:57

ShapeShifter499A computer that is a thin client is basically a bare bones computer that netboots stuff off a server and displays it locally right?    is this possible on a PowerBook G4 and Ubuntu?12:45
jribhackeron_: yes logs of the upgrade are kept in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ .  I'm still not sure what exactly you did.  I don't even see what you pasted originally in your last paste.  In any case, if you got this from a fresh 12.10 cd, I would strongly urge you to start over, carefully documenting your steps (install 12.10, run do-release-upgrade) as it's quite bad if it fails.  If it does fail again, try making12:45
jribsure you are up to date (run normal upgrades) before doing the do-release-upgrade and see if you still have an issue.  If you do (either way) have the issue repeat itself, please file a bug report.12:45

hackeron_jrib: here is the screen log output: http://pastie.org/771671412:48
jribhackeron_: my advice is that you do not try to fix the current state.  You don't lose anything with a reinstall and it's fairly bad that an upgrade would fail on a fresh install.  In any case, if you want to ignore my advice, you can try to run a regular "apt-get dist-upgrade" first and pastebin output12:48

ggherdovHi all. I just updated from 12.04 to 12.10. It asked me to replace the apache2.conf file, I said no since I customized it and had no backup. Now the old config file isn't recognized by apache2 anymore. How to let apt do the job again and replace the apache2 config file with a good one ?12:56
jribggherdov: it shouldn't be the case that your files is no longer recognized12:58
hackeron_jrib: I did a few dpkg -i /path-to-new-pkg.deb and now apt-get dist-upgrade is moving along :D12:59
jribhackeron_: ok12:59
hackeron_jrib: only thing that was broken is python and perl, rest seems ok13:00
ggherdovjrib: it goes like this: the old config (apache2.conf) loaded another config (httpd.conf). no httpd.conf disappeared, and apache2.conf gives then an error. I'd like apt to fix this mess. is it possble?13:00
jribggherdov: well don't you care about your configuration?  You'll just be left with a default configuration13:00
ggherdovjrib: I do. I took now a backup, and will try to restore it once , at least, " service apache2 start " executes fine. Now I am not even there.13:01
jribggherdov: you can 1) find the package that gives apache2.conf (dpkg -S /etc/apache/apache2.conf), then 2) rename apache2.conf, then 3) reinstall the package in (1) but pass --force-confmiss13:02
jribto dpkg13:02

BirdoHey everyone, was here last night with this question. Anyone know how I can get Ubuntu to look at my hardware and update it's 3d drivers? I'm booting for an external HD so I think when I switched from a computer to a laptop Ubuntu continued continued to use the desktop's drivers?13:15
jribggherdov: when you choose to keep the old configuration, dpkg saves the new one for you in that file.  I forgot about this when I first answered your question13:15

crash_cyI'm having trouble with my keyboard in Ubuntu 12.10.  About a week ago, I swapped the escape and caps lock keys.  It seemed to work fine, until a couple days ago, when they would sometimes revert for a moment (hitting caps lock would work as caps lock, Esc as escape).  Now the -_ button (next to the 0) has stopped working.  I've tried restoring default keyboard settings, but the -_ still doesn't work and the Esc doesn't work at all no13:56

ubottuvari: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter13:56

Akiva-MobileGeekDude: I don't know for sure, but for minecraft, that will throw your gpu into overoverdrive for sure17:12

bitnumusso what DNS to try? and can i add direct to /etc/resolv.conf ?17:19
Slartbitnumus: any errors? unknown host?17:20
carpenoctemis /var/www the normal location for htdocs on ubuntu apache2?17:20

Akiva-Mobileit will be faster17:26
bitnumusSlart, yes17:26
wmpAkiva-Mobile: no :)17:26

chop1nbitnumus, hah! :P17:27
bitnumuswmp, that has in it, because i was tsting that, nothing works17:27
bitnumusthis is crazy17:27
wmpbitnumus: could you give content?17:27
bitnumus# Generated by NetworkManager17:27
chop1nShouldn't it be "nameserver"17:28
Addlechop1n: Yes it should.17:28
bitnumusshould NetworkManager be running as root, and dnsmasq running as 'nobody'17:28
bitnumusAddle, it should? network manager added that not me17:29
wmpbitnumus: echo 'nameserver' > /etc/resolv.conf17:29
Addlebitnumus: Yeah, that's pretty strange.17:29
chop1nyeah ... your resolv.conf looks wrong to me then17:29
NoounixJe suis là .17:29
chop1ndon't know why though17:29
bitnumushow can i restart network manager ?17:29
AddleA bug in NetworkManager perhaps?17:29
bitnumuswithout logging out,17:30
bitnumusor should i just log out17:30
bitnumushold that thought!17:30
AddleThe resolv.conf should take effect right away, I believe.17:30
Noounixwtf  ?17:31
bitnumuslooks like a bug.17:31

bitnumusthanks all!17:31
bitnumusout of curiosity, why wouldnt no DNS work ?17:32
Addlebitnumus: It would, as long as you don't mind using IP addresses for everything. :)17:32
pagiosi would like to configure my wireless to connect automatically when system boots, i am currently using wpa_cli to do so but would like to automate the process17:33
bitnumusi mean, what is default ?17:33
bitnumusAddle, if on network manage 'Automatic DCHP' was selected17:33
bitnumuswhat would it use in that case?17:33
Slartbitnumus: the default dns usually comes from the network provider, if you're using dhcp17:33
Addlebitnumus: The DHCP should tell it what DNS to use, generally.17:33
bitnumusodd, i have no idea17:33
bitnumusbut network manager isn't including 'nameserver'17:33
Slartbitnumus: if you're on a static ip you usually get information about your ip, gateway, dns and whatnot17:34

Akiva-Mobilejudging by all the people in here with problems upgrading17:42
Akiva-Mobilefresh installs are much more advised17:42
h00kSnake2k: I've had two upgrades go without incident, also17:42
Snake2kAkiva-Mobile, Hmmm I see.. so chances are my files can pretty much get screwed..17:42
h00kSnake2k: make sure you have a backup of your important stuff, just in case17:42
syntroPihow can i kill the gnome session in raring? where is it???17:42
Akiva-MobileSnake2k: what I would do is boot a live cd, resize the partition, install it on the free space, test the upload, and if it works, boot the live cd again, and destroy your old isntallation and resize your new one to fit your disk17:43
Akiva-MobileSnake2k: your mileage may vary17:43

ezra-smaykr___, that 0's all the hard disk, it should take some time I believe, depends on the size of the disk, oh a with "device" I mean the disk you want to zero not the word "device"17:54
ubottuYES! It's out!17:54
maykr___ezra-s: oh lol i was typing in "device"17:55
trismDraxelis: as it is their fix just creates a symlink to libudev1 in /opt/google/chrome named libudev.so.0 and the package deps on libudev0 or libudev117:55
Sarger001And also is 13.04 a great release?17:55
ezra-smaykr___, no wonder it went so fast17:55
ubottuUbuntu, 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.17:55

ezra-smaykr___, whatever your device is, /dev/mapper means probably your disk is encrypted or under lvm17:57

ezoeIn Ubuntu 13.04. rebooting guarantees kernel panic on boot. shutdown then boot works fine.19:48
SuperLagtrism: yeah, that did the trick.19:48
SuperLagezoe: that isn't the case for everyone, otherwise it would be well-heard, I'm sure :)19:48

SuperLagThis is just my $.02... but I find Linux, in general, to look at lot better if you install the package with the MS core TrueType fonts in it.19:51
ezoeI wonder when Ubuntu let me set font preference. default setting prefers Chinese fonts over Japanese fonts.19:51
SuperLagand by "a lot", I should say... a ***LOT***19:51
ezoeso I have to put .fonts.conf in my home directory.19:52

chigyptI'm trying to Download Ubuntu 13.04 but I still get Ubuntu 12.0419:54
chigyptPlease help!!19:54
trismSuperLag: just an ubuntu user19:55
Picichigypt: How are you trying to download it?19:55
syntroPichigypt, choose from those here http://releases.ubuntu.com/13.04/19:56
chigyptPici: I have tried to download it from the Ubuntu official website19:56
SuperLagchigypt: your mileage may vary, but I generally download linux ISO files from http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu-releases/13.04/19:56
SuperLagthe kernel mirrors are often very fast19:56
syntroPichigypt, basically it doesnt matter where you get it from when you verify its integrity with a checksum like sha1 or md5 to match with the official releases19:57
