scumbumheneusl_pay: open with vlc instead of downloading when given option00:00
heneusl_payscumbum: It is a plugin there is no vlc to open.00:00
heneusl_payscumbum: Do you know what a plugin is?00:01
scumbumWish vlc supported flash better in the web00:01
scumbumYes.00:01
JesseHI am using ubuntu 12.04 xfce can anyone explain to me why my mouse randomly clicks things? Is it a mouse problem or what?00:02
Jordan_UJesseH: That most likely is a hardware problem. Have you tried a different mouse?00:02
heneusl_payHow shall I direct the stream to the already installed VLC plugin?00:02
scumbumheneusl_pay: you want to stream it in the web page.00:02
JesseHI haven't00:02
CrazyjHaving a wierd problem. Ubuntu 13.04 - saying im connecting on status bar to wifi.cant go to anywebsites except bookmarked ones and google. Cant add repositories either. Any advice?00:02
JesseHIs ubuntu really dropping desktop support oneday?00:03
heneusl_payscumbum: No I do not have access to modify the pages code, but I do want to play the stream inside the browser using the already installed VLC plugin.00:03
scumbumheneusl_pay: copy link then open vlc select stream00:04
Jordan_UJesseH: There is no indication that Canonical will ever stop supporting Ubuntu on the desktop, and many indications that they will continue. Further speculation on future events should be discussed in #ubuntu-offtopic.00:04
ninguI'm having an issue with trying to upgrade my server to 13.04. I have postgresql 9.2 installed from a ppa, and do-release-ugprade says it fails because postgresql-server-9.2-dev has no source but is tagged for removal. I'm not sure why that's a fatal error but in any case I want those packages not to be touched in the upgrade process. what should I do?00:04
heneusl_payscumbum: It is a firefox plugin the VLC gui is not installed on the live CD.00:04
JesseHlol00:04
JesseHThanks Jordan_U ^^00:05
JesseHI thought this was ubuntu related00:05
ningushould I tag the postgresql packages as manually managed for now?00:05
CrazyjAlso i know the wifi is working becuase i can go anywhere on my ipad (which is what im currently using)00:05
heneusl_payHow shall I direct the stream to the already installed VLC plugin inside the firefox browser?00:05
Jordan_UJesseH: You're welcome. It is Ubuntu related, but not really an Ubuntu support question.00:05
scumbumheneusl_pay: its possible but clunky. I did it before. First try installing UBUNTU CODEC PACK from software center00:05
JesseHAh, so wouldn't #ubuntu-support be better?00:05
heneusl_payscumbum: no thanks00:06
Jordan_UJesseH: Discussion of the name of this channel is also offtopic for #ubuntu...00:06
JesseHxD00:06
scumbumheneusl_pay: is the vlc plugin activated in firefox00:06
JesseHThanks Jordan_U bye bye00:06
heneusl_payscumbum: yes, perhaps I can look at firefoxs default actions00:07
ningualso, any idea how to scroll up in the screen session opened by do-release-upgrade?00:08
ninguctrl-a doesn't work like usual.00:08
bob___Jordan_U: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5610520/00:09
ninguno suggestions? I don't want to uninstall postgresql during the upgrade.00:11
heneusl_payscumbum: I will ask in #firefox because there is no default action for m3u but there is for mp3.00:11
=== chalced is now known as chalcedony
ninguso right now it basically looks like I can't upgrade.00:11
scumbumheneusl_pay: can you create one00:11
anonkvvHELLO everyone how are you00:12
heneusl_payscumbum: I d not see a way to initiate a creation, so I am asking in #firefox.00:12
scumbumOkay00:13
Jordan_Uningu: Why are you using postresql from a ppa? I would recommend removing all packages installed from any ppa before upgrading, though it sounds like you don't want to do that for some reason.00:14
scumbumheneusl_pay: i got it to work once for flash. But fancy sites youtube would not work00:14

anonkvv ACAN ANYONE HELP WITH TELNET00:15
savioanonkvv be more specific00:16
Jordan_Uanonkvv: Please don't use all caps.00:16
anonkvv i am trying to learn to use telnet and i am ircing with it00:17
ninguJordan_U: because 9.2 is not available in ubuntu yet.00:17
Jordan_Uningu: Does the ppa you're using have packages for ubuntu 13.04?00:17
anonkvvjust trying to learn to use telnet so i came to irc and anyone knows anything that they think would help with it please let me know00:18
ningunot officially. it officially only goes up to 12.04, at least, there is no dists/quantal, but the web site says 12.10 is supported.00:18
Jordan_Uanonkvv: This channel is for Ubuntu support, asking about how to use IRC via telnet is not really on topic.00:18
elfer:o00:19
Jordan_Uanonkvv: Try #ubuntu-offtopic, or #defocus.00:19
heneusl_payscumbum: Flash is not installed, the directions for adding a default action are here but I am not sure how this will work since the plugin is not a stand alone app but contained inside firefox look here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file00:19
ranjeetHey guys, I am still on 12.10, can I upgrade to the latest version 13.04? Is there any known problems, I should not go for upgrde?00:19
SenorJordan_U : I have download a grub-rescue.iso ,and modified it ,how can I save it?00:20
anonkvvjust tyrying to learn somthing new i have learned linucvx just not tell net00:20
scumbumheneusl_pay: vlc can play flash files standalone.00:20
ninguJordan_U: anyway I guess if I want to be sure it will continue working I should wait until it's clear that there are packages for 13.0400:20
Jordan_Uningu: Then you'll want to wait until the ppa is updated, at which point I would still recommend removing the ppa's packages before upgrading (not just removing hte ppa), then re-enabme the ppa and install the packages again after upgrading.00:20
LiquidDemocracyI need some help. After the upgrade to 13.04 I can not log into Ubuntu anymore. After entering the password for 2 seconds is seems to load the desktop but then it jumps right back to the login window.00:20
Jordan_Uanonkvv: This is the wrong channel. Please go elsewhere to experiment with IRC via telnet.00:20
ninguyeah, the postgresql web site describing the ppa is extremely unclear about this00:21
ninguI'll ask in the channel00:21
Jordan_ULiquidDemocracy: Have you tried the rescue session (I may be misremembering the name)? It's an option at the login screen.00:22
ranjeetreadding my question again, any help appreciated00:23
ranjeetHey guys, I am still on 12.10, can I upgrade to the latest version 13.04? Is there any known problems, I should not go for upgrde?00:23
LiquidDemocracyJordan_U, there is only a guest access00:25
ranjeetHey guys, I am still on 12.10, can I upgrade to the latest version 13.04? Is there any known problems, I should not go for upgrde?00:25
Jordan_Uranjeet: Yes you can upgrade. See the release notes for common known issues.00:26
Noskcajranjeet, you can upgrade through the update manager00:26
Jordan_U!upgrade | ranjeet00:26
ubotturanjeet: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade00:26
Stuz719ranjeet: i've just updated lubuntu on one machine to 13.04, no problems so far but your mileage may vary. If you don't need to update why do you want to? My main production machines are on 12.04LTS where I'm using kubuntu00:27
savioranjeet ubuntu  13.04 is good in every term did u see any review of it a good unity kernal 3.800:27
ZettaZete_I tried to upgrade to the latest version of Ubuntu, through console mode. Now I'm looking at a bunch of graphical noise. What can I do about this?00:28
ranjeetthank you all for answering the query, I am just a new user who switched from windows 8 to Ubuntu for performance. Installed 12.10 and found 13.04 is out00:29
Jordan_UZettaZete_: You used do-release-upgrade?00:29
ranjeetIf 13.04 is doing good then I will go for the update00:29
ZettaZete_Jordan_U Yup.00:29
Jordan_UZettaZete_: Did it finish without error? Did you get this corruption after rebooting?00:30
ZettaZete_I think the upgrade is still going. I'm not sure.00:30
ranjeetAgain, thx a bunch for everyone who answered my query :-)00:30
Jordan_UZettaZete_: When did you start seeing screen corruption? Can you take a picture of it with a camera and upload it?00:31
Senorhow to make one iso file bootable?00:32
scumbumheneusl_pay: in address bar type about:plugins00:32
ZettaZete_Jordan_U, it was shortly after it finished downloading all the packages. Yea, give me a moment.00:33
Poisoned_Dragonare you making the iso yourself, or downloading it?00:33
Jordan_USenor: What do you mean by "bootable"? You can take any Ubuntu iso and burn it to a DVD to make a bootable DVD, or dd it to a hard drive to make a bootable hard drive.00:34
heneusl_payscumbum: ok finished, this gives some information but does not allow for adding a filetype, what to do next?00:34
tuxGentoovirtual serial port?00:34

ZettaZete_Jordan_U: http://s7.postimg.org/u15zz9tbf/IMG_20130427_174252.jpg00:35
scumbumheneusl_pay: hoping it would allow you to set somethings00:35
heneusl_payscumbum: thank you for the information00:36
Jordan_USenor: If you are still talking about that grub-rescue.iso, nobody is going to be able to help you with an image that you have but can't tell us where it's from, or even upload it for us to look at. Stop asking about it until you can do one of those things. Alternately, you can use Super GRUB2 Disk 2.00b1 like I recommended earlier, which I can help you with (in #sgrub).00:37
Jordan_UZettaZete_: Can you ssh into the machine?00:37
SenorJordan_U:I dowloaded it from sourceforge : http://sourceforge.net/projects/supergrub.berlios/files/00:39
ZettaZete_Jordan_U, Unless it was installed with the live CD. Its a pretty minimal install.00:41
susanahello00:42
Jordan_USenor: Great. Please download super_grub2_disk_hybrid_2.00s1-beta1.iso from that same page and join #sgrub for more help (as this is offtopic for #ubuntu).00:42
Jordan_UZettaZete_: Unfortunately no, sshd is not installed by default.00:43
Jordan_UZettaZete_: Does anything change if you press ctrl+alt+F1?00:43
ZettaZete_I have cycled through all the consoles. All of them are the same.00:43
Jordan_UZettaZete_: If it's not to inconvenient you could let it run for a day to be pretty sure that the upgrade has completed (hopefully without any prompts asking for user input) then reboot via sysrq magic.00:45
heneusl_payscumIs there a way to install the fluendo codec (that the install promps to enable) during a live session?00:45
Jordan_U!sysrq | ZettaZete_00:45
ubottuZettaZete_: In an emergency, you may be able to shutdown cleanly and reboot by holding down Alt+PrintScreen and typing, in succession, R, E, I, S, U and B. For an explanation, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key00:45
heneusl_payIs there a way to install the fluendo codec (that the install promps to enable) during a live session?00:45
Jordan_UZettaZete_: Obviously that's not ideal though. Were you using GPU drivers with KMS support? (If you were using proprietary drivers then the answer is no, if not then the answer is probably yes).00:46
susana_hello guys00:47
totalityhey can anyoen help me wiht an issue im having with firefox in 13.0400:48
ZettaZete_Jordan_U I have guessed a few times and have proceeded past a few prompts. It looks like its still going. I uninstalled the unsupported drivers a week ago and reinitialized the xorg configs.00:48

Jordan_Ubob___: If you ssh in from the client can you see the directory?00:50
ZettaZete_Jordan_U, I was using non X tty. However, looks like I guessed another prompt and it restarted. Everything looks OK so far.00:50
Jordan_UZettaZete_: That's lucky I guess :)00:50
ZettaZete_Jordan_U, yea everything seems to be running fine. Thanks for the help anyway!00:52

KBentley57maybe you can try setting the opacity to "0" in the system settings till we figure out a good solution01:21
scott_puopolobro_ken, if your computer has more than one ram stick, try booting with just one and then just the other to isolate a bad ram stick01:22
trismcato_: looks fine, did you check the output of your local pkg-config? also you add -L for gtk in /usr/lib/ but you query a pkg-config in /usr/local/bin/ which is kind of odd01:22
bro_kenThanks Scott & kb01:22
KBentley57Neytiri, can you tell us a little more about it?  At least what it is and why you think it has a virus01:22

GerowenWhat's the easiest way to "Upgrade" in place from 12.10 to 13.04?  I seem to remember in older releases you would get prompted with "There's a newer version of Ubuntu available!" and it would upgrade your system in place without having to boot from the CD.  Is that option still available?  The "Notify me of new versions of Ubuntu" box is checked in software sources01:25
KBentley57Gerowen, a simple command will do it.  "sudo do-release-upgrade"01:25
michael__I like Ubuntu more I have problens01:25

KBentley57Neytiri, give that a try, and report back if it acts differently, or even the same01:27
Neytirikk01:28
KBentley57when you download it, it will be contained in one folder.  Just start the firefox from within that folder01:28
cato_trism: pkg-config reports that there's no gtk+-2.0 found. (that -L for gtk in /usr/lib was out of desperation :))01:29
trismcato_: ahh, why are you using a pkg-config in /usr/local/bin/ and not the system version?01:30

KBentley57scott_puopolo, I had to start the factorial process of ram swapping :).  I finally hit the one that wouldn't let the system boot period.  It still weirds me out that it was able to boot with a bad stick.  I suppose the others propped it up?01:39
KBentley57Xgates, try the "man ifconfig".  It may have a few tips.  Also, look up ethtool01:39
=== heneusl_pay is now known as heneusl_pay_web
KBentley57Xgates, in fact, I'm pretty sure ethtool can do what you wish01:40
varunXgates, as far as I know, you don't need the 'up' option if you are assigning IP with ifconfig. It has to be brought up is implied in it.01:40
anonkvvif someone is using a live usb will that save information on there computers hard drive?01:40
KBentley57anonkvv, focus your question down.  That could mean many different things01:41
XgatesSo running  sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.2 should bring it up?01:41
* wilee-nilee red flag goes to half mast, lol01:41
varunXgates, yes01:41

KBentley57anonkvv, if you are running from a live usb, most things saved are temporary only, and will not survive a reboot.  Unless, you have persistance on your usb01:43
varunmzhang, I think the default choice of VBox is to keep the disk size dynamic. Meaning it will grow as you fill it up, and the defined size will be the max. limit. So it seems natural to me01:43
KBentley57NoodleFox, check this out: http://linuxcommand.org/01:43
mzhangvarun: I made it fixed size at 50gb.01:44
anonkvvso if you are running the live usb in presistance it could save files such to you hard drive but just in live mode it will nowt save it to the hard drive01:44
NoodleFoxKBentley57: Excellent thank you :D01:44
KBentley57well, you could save files TO the hard drive in either case.  If you want to save files to the flash drive itself, you will lose it on reboot, unless you have a separate space on the flash drive to store files.01:45
KBentley57NoodleFox, Welcome :)01:45
varunmzhang, then I'm clueless.. :(01:45
pierdolleafter update i cant provide sound to my tv (hdmi) but streaming video on it goes well. Is this invidual problem or is it many that have experiencd the same problem?01:46
KBentley57pierdolle, were you using the propriatary drivers before, and are you now?01:47
anonkvvso live mode saves nothing to hard drive and presistance does save to the hard drive right?prive msg #ubuntu :me?01:47
anonkvvme?01:47
mzhangvarun: Found out. fyi: the file was saved as a sparse file. cp --sparse=never solved this.01:48
KBentley57anonkvv, you are half right.  live mode saves nothing to hard drive, unless you manually do it.  the "persistence" is a partition on the flash drive itself that can hold information between reboots, but that information is not stored on the hard drive of the computer01:48

Hermes1111ok, cheers02:55
geektech713unity reminds me of Windows02:55
frotz47me too! after hating both of the 11's releases and both of the 12's releases, I find myself with nothing bad to say about 13.04.02:55

newworldi install ubuntu 13.04 with Unetbootin in a usb and when i boot i can not login02:57
KBentley57newworld, I see.  Thanks.  Will it make it to the login screen, and then not let you log in, or does the boot process fail earlier than that?02:58
Merisharold_, true, but between LTS releases there are proper changelogs that you can choose to browse through or not, if you don't you might get a few surprises, yes.02:58
newworldi try with ubuntu and no password and not work02:58

geektech713but the USB ISO install isn't the real deal if doesn't support new 13.0403:09
MerisMartynKeigher, in that case you'll need to the vhost settings so that it includes an alias for the same webspace as the main URL.03:09

berto-i'm looking to use btrfs in RAID1 as my root filesyste, but after adding a device I get "Invalid argument" on boot.  I found a post that says i need to run "btrfs device scan".  how do i add that for booting?03:40
MerisHermes1111, I use LXDE with OpenBox, so I have few experiences with Unity in depth. Sorry about that.03:41
Hermes1111Meris, it's alright, I really do appreciate you trying to help. Are you throwing in the towel or you still trying?03:42
MerisHermes1111, How could you think that of me? I might need that towel to flag down a spaceship!03:42
Jordan_Uberto-: Are you dropped to a busybox shell when you boot?03:43
Hermes1111lol03:43
berto-Jordan_U: yeah, initramfs.03:43
Jordan_Uberto-: Try running "btrfs device scan" then just exit the shell. If that works, then you can probably automatically fix your initramfs to do it automatically with update-initramfs.03:44
berto-Jordan_U: rebooting … 1 sec.03:45
Jordan_Uberto-: If I recall correctly, "update-initramfs -k all", but since I don't have an Ubuntu machine handy at the moment you should confirm that with "man update-initramfs".03:45
MerisHermes1111, another try, do you find a category System Settings => keyboard =>  shortcuts => windows? That one should contain all shortcuts for window manipulation, including the Ctrl + Alt that you are trying to disable03:46
Jordan_Uberto-: If just running "btrfs device scan" and exiting doesn't work (but btrfs device scan is available and appears to work) you may need to mount your root fs to /root/ before exiting the shell.03:47
berto-Jordan_U: the command in the initramfs shell appears to be "btrfsctl -a"03:47
berto-the help for -a says: scans all devices for Btrfs filesystems03:48
MerisDoes anyone know how to restore your Desktop folder along with it's functionality after having deleted it by accident?03:48
Hermes1111Meris, I do not see ctrl + alt in there03:48
Hermes1111Meris, does a specific one for you have ctrl + alt assigned there?03:49
Jordan_Uberto-: I think that's because you're using an old version of btrfs progs. For using btrfs it's practically essential that you use at least the latest stable linux kernel (not just the one in the Ubuntu repositories), and it's important (though not as critical) to install the latest btrfs progs as well.03:49
MerisHermes1111, as I told you before, I don't use unity, so I wouldn't know.03:49
berto-Jordan_U: yeah, i am using 3.9-rc803:50
Hermes1111Meris, I'm going to just disable all my ctrl + alt ones, see if that works lol03:50
berto-and i rebuilt btrfs-progs, though I'm not sure i installed it properly.  i ran `make` and then `make install prefix=/usr bindir=/sbin`03:51

ubottuDavidScherer: Saying "It says nothing", "It does nothing" is generally not very useful for troubleshooting. Please be as specific as possible: if you see a black screen, say so, if you see a shell prompt, say so, if you see an !error message, say so - Also, most !CLI commands don't print anything when they succeed, but only when they fail.04:58

ubottuGuest54272: 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 parameter05:25

Before installation it was having 3 primary partitions, one for where windows files were kept other where my data was stored and third was an small size partition but I dont know what is had may it was having boot loader as I could see this small partition as /dev/sda1 whil05:36
hackoolotuspsychje: wilee-nilee: Before starting installation I created another logical partition by shrinking the biggest data partition then I used live Ubuntu USB drive for installation. While installation I saw something weird like option to select bootloader partition was showing me /dev/sda1 (loader) and /dev/sdb but not /dev/sda. I proceed with selecting /dev/sda1 and completed installation. After successful complete installtion I saw the grub2 boot 05:37

Jordan_Ucotton-gnome: If you use manual partitioning it should allow you to select where grub's boot sector should be installed, though I haven't tested 13.04's installer yet. Also, it doesn't ever default to installing grub's boot sector to a partition, as that's just wrong.06:32

nio707Jordan_U i need to mount the squashfs partion of the disk on module . the live cd could detect the partion but when try to mount the partion it fails. is there any patch for the kernel for the squashfs partion08:53
Jordan_Unio707: "the disk on module"?08:55
nio707Jordan_U its a small memory disk which acts as a hdd for embebded system . it has 4 partion , with 2 partion of ext208:56

nio707Jordan_U its /dev/hda208:58
nio707Jordan_U i tried with slitaz livecd too but when i issue the command say mount /dev/hda2 -t squasfs /home/test/ its give the error cannot find /dev/hda2 . the device node i found is with fdisk command09:00
Jordan_Unio707: What version of Ubuntu are you using?09:00
nio707Jordan_U i need to find whether the ubuntu10.0lts kernel has the squashfs module or i have to patch it09:01
Jordan_Unio707: Ubuntu 12.04's kernel should have sqaushfs support, as you'll see that the LiveCD itself depends on mounting a squashfs image.09:02
nio707Jordan_U can you tell me the ubuntu 10.04lts kernel version09:03

vici want to unlock a network locked modem, any help09:06
Jordan_Unio707: Did you run "sudo fdisk -l" from the Ubuntu liveCD before trying the mount command, or did you just assume that the device name was the same as in slitaz?09:06

Jordan_Usveinse: Is it an absolute symlink or relative?09:32
sveinseJordan_U: Absolute. Could that be the case?09:32
Jordan_Usveinse: I know that with sshfs there is an option to automatically convert absolute symlinks to relative, and if you think about it it makes sense since the root filesystem hierarchy will be different on the client and the server, so absolute symlinks would point to different files.09:34
sveinseNo, that didnt resolve it. Neither abs or rel symlink works. And I do know the permission of both the symlink and the targeted dir to be correct09:35

BluesKajjavier, choose the "output  devices" tab and choose the ports dropdown , choose spdif out14:18
wilee-nileeErrare, Okay cool, just concerned it might be a wubi install which is a file in windows.14:18
Errareoh, would that matter?14:18
scumbumjavier: just type alsamixer in terminal14:18

jjini'm trying to install ubuntu GNOME 13.04 via usb as a dual-boot on a machine currently running windows 8, but the usb drive containing it isn't recognized as a boot option. the same drive with regular ubuntu 13.04 (with unity) works just fine and is recognized. any ideas?14:44
scumbumjavier__: music is stereo14:44
BluesKajnot all music is stereo , there are some dvd audio surround encoded files or disks available14:45
javier__scumbum, my issue is that when i was playing music thru rhythmbox before, my sub wouldnt enable as a stereo input14:46
javier__i installed the equilizer ppa and enabled the lfe before, and am seeing if i have to do the same thing14:46
marjust installed 13.04 - What should I do about nVidia drivers?14:46
wilee-nileejjin, This the gnome remix, does it have the uefi stuff onboard?14:46
cyclist_2wilee-nilee: you will not install it by just clicking on the link; you should get a new window asking whether you wish to install it or to open it; anyway, if you do not know the answer to my question, I thank you for you reply but seek no further assistance from you; I *actually clicked on all links and all I get is a '404 - not found page' message*; that's the reason for my curiosity14:47

KyshtynbaiHi guys. Should I install 64bit system on a notebook with this processor, http://pastebin.com/MmMNkQcm or it is pointless?14:55
Jeff_StylezI could use some help if someone's got a minute.   Been searching the web for two days trying different things, and I simply can't get Ubuntu installed on my box.  I think it's related to my video cards because of the errors I'm receiving from nouveau.  Tried CD's, USB, nomodeset, blacklisting nouveau, nothing works, end up simply at a black screen. (No cursor)14:55

wilee-nileejpastore, No gnome 2 is not available, however there are other desktop options.15:05

wilee-nileejpastore, gnome 315:06
jpastorewilee-nilee: so cna I uninstall unity and install gnome3?15:06
lovethecodeI like the 13.04, so far!15:07
cristian_cHi15:07
wilee-nileejpastore, YOu have gnome already it underlies the ubinty desktop which is a plugin in compiz, if you want the gnome 3 shell and the fallback option install the gnome shell. Removing unity is not a wise thing in general.15:07
wilee-nilees/unity15:08
jpastorewilee-nilee: yea but I really don't like unity. it might be the lowest common denominator interface that works well for all sizes...but I do not like it.15:08
spabSo - uh.  How can I apt install something that has two ++'s in the name?  It's been treated like I'm trying to regex something15:08
spabEscaping the +'s doesn't help neither does enclosing it in quotes and google is worthless15:09
jpastoreI will look up how to uninstall unity if it will revert back to just using gnome. thanks.15:09
wilee-nileejjin, I don't really understand the differences of your downloads to be honest, might you just need to use the out if the bois boot from menu?15:09
cristian_cThere is a mysterious problem with my laptop. I mean, when I run the suspension, after the restore there are problems. The first of which is that the Chromium browser will no longer open (but it also does with Chrome) and if you launch it from the terminal, an error is returned.15:09
vonkrolokis there somebody here that uses ubuntu to sync and ipod touch?15:09
spabvonkrolok, what version of iPod touch?15:09

Foragejrib: I got rid of autopackage instead15:11
jjinwilee-nilee: what do you mean by that? i've been using the "boot from" menu this entire time, to no success15:12
cristian_cAlso, when I try to logout or reboot the pc freezes, meaning that when I try to restart, the screen goes black and hangs there indefinitely (in the case of the log, it appears the shell with the messages, but it hangs too) and I have to brutally shut down the pc.15:12
amazighdoes any of you guys have an idea why youtube is so slow since a week ?15:12
Jeff_StylezHmm.  Could my install troubles be related to the SLI bridge being installed?15:12
cristian_cI tried several solutions, from uswsusp to tuxonice, to create a special file in /etc/pm/config.d/, but these attempts have not been successful. I also checked the syslog, but also did not provide significant information about the origin of the problem15:13
wilee-nileejjin, To boot a usb you can change the bios, or use a key prompt at poering on to get a one tome boot from menu not in the bios.15:13

jjinwilee-nilee: oops, probably should have mentioned it first then. also, when i go into BIOS to try to change the boot order, the USB containing ubuntu-gnome does not show up on the list of options, whereas the one w/ regular ubuntu does15:15
jjinwilee-nilee: just btw, when i say ubuntu-gnome i'm referring to this http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-gnome/releases/13.04/release/15:16
jjinwilee-nilee: i'm using the amd64 version, as that's the version that the ubuntu website seems to suggest that i use, given that i'm running windows 8 on a UEFI machine15:16
wilee-nileejjin, That is the same release as the ubuntu.com one15:17

sveinseWhy does Chrome report outdated java, when chrome plugins reports the newest version? And on java.com the version check, chrome first reports outdated java when the check is started, but reports OK, has latest version afterwards16:37
kwelndartanstaafl, if you are still using the same gksu-ed nautilus it should work16:37
sveinseI have oracle java PPA where I download upstream jre16:37
kwelndartanstaafl, but you might have to open a terminal16:37
tanstaaflkwelndar, gksu nautilus loads root trash.  The files appear in user trash.16:38
tanstaaflkwelndar, if I knew the directory location of trash on ubuntu 13.04 I could solve the problem handily.16:38
BluesKajsveinse, some sites wrongly report java is not up to date , sometimes it's a redirect to scam site if click on their upgrade link , usually meant for MS Windows16:39
MonkeyDusttanstaafl  try ~/.local/share/Trash/16:39
tanstaaflMonkeyDust, there they are!  thanks16:40

kwelndarsveinse, I think, but am not sure that it is a FEATURE of chrome to show outdated Java plugin, because all Java plugin versions have serious security flaws and should not be used at this time!16:45
sveinsekwelndar: Well, I tend to agree. Doesn't help though when Norwegian government forces us to sign in using java to be able to deliver our tax returns :P16:46
kwelndarUsing command line Java is still fine, but use in any browser as a plugin is asking for serious trouble16:46

BluesKajsveinse, yes then there is definitely a problem if a legit site is giving you the update required message :P16:49
sveinsekwelndar: Yep. A system they called BankID. Its a security-dongle challenge-response thing based on java. Java is great, because with it there is at least a minuscule change for linux support. But quoting them after the resent security issues with java "we're desperately searching out alternatives to java".16:49

at_oussamai have a problem running all versions of ubuntu using Unity, since i don't think my GPU support 3D acceleration without a proprietary driver, but when i try to run 13.04 liveCD i have nothing at all, only the wallaper and nothing else, please help ?19:13
PhiloI can't get to a CLI.19:13
PhiloI'm given no option for one.19:14
awayPhilo, what about a tty?19:14
awayctrl+alt+f119:14
MonkeyDustPhilo  trl-alt f119:14
MonkeyDustc19:14
PhiloAnd when I installed the operating system, I clicked yes for it to update fully.19:14
bekks1519:15
PhiloYou can hear the sound it makes when the driver crashes.19:15
un2himdash doesn't show files and folders, even ones in the home folder like music, documents, etc.  Why?  I am on 13.0419:15
PhiloSo, I know it's crashing.19:15
cristinahello with unetbootin can i make a win boot flash?19:15
PhiloI've heard there were issues for x64 and Nvidia drivers.19:16
PhiloSo, I guess they just never fixed it.19:16
PhiloBut then this was supposed to be a generic driver.19:16
PhiloSo, I guess that can't be it either.19:16
bekksPhilo: I havent had those issues for a decade now.19:16
PhiloIt's strange that not even a generic driver can provide me with a basic display.19:16
Philobekks: Right. I figured by 2013 these sort of issues would have been resolved.19:17
PhiloI remember having similar issues years ago.19:17
meerkatI need help fixing my DNS. I can't access any websites.19:17
PhiloButu even then, the generic drivers worked.19:17
bekksPhilo: Frankly, I havent had those issues since 2003.19:17
PhiloWell, they haven't entirely fixed the problem.19:17
PhiloBecause it still exists for some configuruations.19:17
un2himdash doesn't show files and folders, even ones in the home folder like music, documents, etc.  Why?  I am on 13.0419:18
PhiloAnd that's pretty sad.19:18

wilee-nileeun2him, you ticking on the icons at the bottom19:18
bekksPhilo: There is no bug free software out there.19:18
un2himwilee-nilee, yes, even when i click the icons at the bottom...nothing found!19:18
CrownWheelAnyone know how to set a static IP on a wireless interface in Ubuntu?19:19
PhiloI don't think I've ever experienced that sort of problem with Windows, and I'm talking about as far back as Windows 3.119:19
CrownWheelThe automagical wireless client overrides the static IP I set with ifconfig...19:19
PhiloI can't even get into an environment to fix it. If I have to go back to a CLI in 2013 to resolve issues, what does that tell you?19:19
CrownWheelWhen it (predicably) can't get a DHCPed address, it gives up.19:19
PhiloIt tells me that this isn't really a modern and fully-developed operating system.19:19
PhiloI wanted to switch from Windows 8, because I hate their GUI, but at least this terrible GUI functions as intended.19:20
bekksPhilo: It tells me that you have to investigate your logs top get the actual issue instead just blaming the driver.19:20
seyfarthJust installed 13.04. Changing my display setting gives me a "Could not apply the sotred config for monitors" dialog. It seems xorg.conf is missing?19:20
Ben64Philo: this channel isn't really for ranting19:20
seyfarthSo I have to disable my laptop screen every boot :(19:20
PhiloWell, I have to go into logs and configuration files in a CLI to get a fresh install working?19:21
PhiloGood Lord.19:21
PhiloBen64: Is it for assistance?19:21
Ben64Philo: yes19:21
jamesaeppHello. I am interested in a backup solution (alternative to Deja Dup, as I do not like its characteristics) My requirements are that this program be able to do R-SYNC or differential backup, backup to an FTP location, and store all files as-is, (no encryption like Deja Dup) and previous files are NOT required. Just the latest versions. For Ubuntu 12.04 desktop. Suggestions?19:21
DWSRDoes 12.04 support SLI?19:22
PhiloOkay, what would be the problem for a generic driver crashing on a fresh install? I have a x64 AMD processor and a GTX 260.19:22
bekksDWSR: Thats an issue of the nvidia driver used, not of Ubuntu itself.19:22
zinc55Isn't SLI a driver thing?19:22
bekksPhilo: There are zillions of possible reasons.19:22
PhiloFor example?19:22
bekksPhilo: You have to investigate the logs.19:22
PhiloOkay, if I'm not getting anything displaying,  how do I get to a CLI?19:23
Ben64!text19:23
ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode19:23
MultbrelchDear all!    My touchpad+ buttons worked very well, suddenly its over, they don't work anymore. - Does anybody has an idea where I can start?19:23
PhiloOkay, let's say I'm in a CLI, what then?19:23
MultbrelchI have 12.04 64 Bit19:23
bekksPhilo: Do you get a terminal when pressing ctrl+alt+f119:24
PhiloNo.19:24
bekksPhilo: Did you already try to reboot using the nomodeset option?19:24
Ben64Philo: check logs in /var/log19:24
tgm4883Philo, if you don't get a terminal when you do that, I think you have far worse problems than a driver crashing X19:24
Ben64oh yeah, nomodeset might fix it right away19:24
PhiloAnd what am I investigating in the logs?19:24
tgm4883It19:25
PhiloWhat am I looking for?19:25
tgm4883It's my experience that people that don't know what to generically look for in logs, shouldn't be looking at logs19:25
charltondoes anyone in here know about tinyproxy?19:25
Ben64you can toss them on pastebin or something, and show it here19:25
clintonctgm4883: You're not being helpful.19:25
PhiloWell, that explains everything, tgm4883.19:25
PhiloWhich would then tell me that the operating system is not user-friendly.19:25
kronos003I'm currently running Fedora 18 and considering jumping ship to ubuntu or mint or something else if it's better - which should I go with?19:26
charltontgm4883: Someone needs to get off their high horse.19:26
clintoncPhilo: Installing Windows fresh is not always a walk in the park, either :)19:26
tgm4883what high horse?19:26
wilee-nileekronos003, What ever one you like. ;)19:26
Ben64kronos003: we don't support mint here, just so you know19:26
PhiloIt was pretty automated, clintonc.19:26
Seveaskronos003: you're asking in #ubuntu - so you expect any other answer than "Ubuntu of course!"19:27
Ben64Philo: so was installing ubuntu for me19:27
kronos003Ben64: why would I want mint over ubuntu or vice versa?19:27
Ben64Philo: sometimes there are issues19:27
Seveas!anyone | charlton19:27
Tumleekronos003: That depends entirely on why you jumped ship from Fedora 1819:27
ubottucharlton: A high percentage of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.19:27
charltonThe mate desktop, maybe?19:27
PhiloDid you have to go into a CLI, investigate logs, and then.. Lord knows what.19:27
MultbrelchBump ... anybody can help me plz? How can I see if a touchpad is available? Via lsusb?19:27
Ben64Philo: at least ubuntu has that option. on windows you're just stuck19:27
tgm4883clintonc, charlton if someone is told to go look at the logs, and they don't know what they are looking for. Simply telling them where the logs are is NOT helpful19:27
clintoncI said it's not *always* a walk in the park, and neither is installing whatever flavor of Linux.  (I installed Linux last night, and it was easy-peasy)19:28
PhiloSay I'm in the logs, what's the next step?19:28
kronos003Tumlee: My big gripe is that many things I want to install are just ready to go on ubuntu, where on fedora I have to compile and pray - and often that is not enough19:28
bekksPhilo: Read them, check them for errors.19:28
zykotick9Multbrelch: it's not with lsusb, but try "egrep -i 'synap|alps|etps' /proc/bus/input/devices"19:28
Philoclintonc: Let's not universalize your experience.19:28
tgm4883Philo, you'll want to look for "error" or "fail" and see what that line says19:28
clintonctgm4883: Looking at the logs can certainly help.  Which error comes about can help determine the next course of action.19:28
Ben64Philo: i would say just to show the logs here, but you could look for lines with "error" in the xorg log19:28
=== zettazete is now known as ZettaZete_
charltontgm4483, true, but people must look at logs to know how they work/contain.19:28
clintoncPhilo: I'm not suggesting we universalize my experience, but let us also not universalize yours.19:29
Tumleekronos003: Ubuntu is pretty much set for a lot of things. There's plenty of support and it's very rare that I've had to compile a program unless it was some development version, or a not-so-popular app19:29
Multbrelchzykotick9, thx for your kind help. Here the result: N: Name="ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad"19:29
PhiloNow is the error itself going to tell me how to correct it?19:29
kronos003I've heard that mint is basically ubuntu, but with Mate (gnome2) and I think some other stuff as well19:29
bekksPhilo: Depends on the error.19:29
Multbrelchso there is a touchpad ... well it worked before, so should be19:29
charltonThats pretty much linux mint19:29
tgm4883clintonc, charlton that is absolutly true, but there are some people that don't even know ot look for the word "error"19:29
clintoncNow, let's stop arguing so you can get your problem fixd :319:29
PhiloSo, I would need to find the error, then reboot to Windows, and look up how to correct it.19:29
PhiloIs this correct?19:29
clintonctgm4883: This is not Philo's first time running Linux.19:29
Ben64Philo: so am i to understand that you have not installed the nvidia drivers?19:29
TumleeAlso, know that there are different DEs you can get for Ubuntu if you really want to avoid Unity.19:29
TumleeI'm running Ubuntu GNOME right now19:30
PhiloWhich I assume would mean that I'd need to edit a configuration file or install a new driver.19:30
bekksPhilo: You need to find the error and after that, we can help you to proceed.19:30
charltontgm4883, well then we need to tell them how so they can learn19:30
tgm4883clintonc, whether it is or not, it's pretty apparent to me that he doesn't know how to look though logs19:30
PhiloBen64: Hell, Ubuntu never gave me the opportunity.19:30
Ben64tgm4883: just stop if you're not going to help19:30
kronos003Right now I'm using XFCE and  I also do a lot of windows type stuff in qemu-kvm and manage that with lib virt19:30
Ben64Philo: ok, so the first thing i would suggest to you is nomodeset19:30
Ben64!nomodeset | Philo19:30
ubottuPhilo: 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 parameter19:30
tgm4883charlton, exactly, which is not what was happening at all. Everyone was just saying "look at the logs in /var/log/" not even saying which file to look in19:30
kronos003is there anything on fedora I wont have on ubuntu?19:30
clintoncPhilo: I've had experiences where the generic drivers have crashed, and the only resolution that I could find was to install the NVidia drivers.19:30
tgm4883Ben64, I'm helping far more that you can even realize19:30
Tumleekronos003: There is a xubuntu, which from what I understand is pretty up to date on XFCE19:31
ZettaZete_Does anybody have any experience with Radeon HD 7690M? When I install the fglrx drivers, when I restart my computer. Unity stops working, or my computer is forced into low-graphics mode.19:31
Tatuuswhat's with this "jailbird" -guy... he quit, but before that sent rude pm's, n -words and all, cheez19:31
TumleeI've never tried it before though.19:31
meerkatI need help fixing my DNS. I can't reach any websites.19:31
Ben64tgm4883: no, the word to describe your actions is "arguing"19:31
charltontgm4883, well then, why didnt you, seeing that others were not helping enough, step in?19:31
=== mak0r620 is now known as makoto
PhiloOkay, I will try the nomodeset later.19:31
tgm4883charlton, I did19:31
PhiloThank you for your time.19:31
=== Philo is now known as Philoaway
kronos003looks like I'm running XFCE 4.1019:31
charltont4883, did that fix the problem?19:31
prjkthi, I'm confused . I'm following a vpn tutorial and it says to run "service iptables restart" but it says "iptables: unrecognized service."  However doing apt-get install iptables says it's already instlaled.  so where am I going wrong?19:32
awaymeerkat, but IPs work?19:32
TumleeYup. If you like XFCE, then I'd recommend xubuntu if you're planning to choose ubuntu19:32
meerkataway, yes19:32
Ben64prjkt: iptables isn't a "service"19:32
prjktI'm following this verbatim: http://holgr.com/blog/2009/06/setting-up-openvpn-on-amazons-ec2/19:32
tgm4883charlton, which problem. the part where he didn't know what to look for? Or the part where most here don't know how to help for a problem that is more than skin deep?19:32
awaymeerkat, back up /etc/resolv.conf and then edit it19:33
prjktit says "Reload the firewall and make it start on boot by entering:   service iptables restart19:33
Ben64prjkt: thats for fedora19:33
kronos003In your experience how helpful is the channel when trying to fix issues on your machine? I've found the fedora channel to lately be less tahn helpful - seems like I have a knack for asking questions noone can answer19:33
prjktBen64, okay so how can I adjust for ubuntu please19:33
Ben64prjkt: dunno19:33
zykotick9meerkat: fyi, changing resolv.conf isn't gonna remain after a restart... very temporary solution19:33
Multbrelchwhere is the log file that may tell me that there is an issue with the touchpad?19:33
prjktthere is also no directory /etc/sysconfig which is mentioned19:33
prjktBen64, I'm confused, why would iptables be so different under fedora and ubuntu?19:34
prjkti.e. a service or not-a-service19:34
charltontgm4883, the looking for the correct log part. Can we quit arguing now? if this channel rustles your jimmies _THAT_ much, you should leave. many people recieve help here, and many people learn to give help.19:34
Ben64prjkt: plus, that guide is almost 4 years old, you might want to find something more recent19:34
CrownWheelMultbrelch, try: xinput list19:34
awayprjkt, have you looked at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo19:34
meerkataway, zykotick9 my resolv.conf file is pretty much empty. Just one commented line in there.19:34
zykotick9Multbrelch: check Xorg's log /var/log/Xorg.0.log (especially for any EE lines)19:34
kronos003fedora is trying to make the move to firewalld - from what i gather its a different beast than the iptables we are used to19:34
MultbrelchCrownWheel, zykotick9 ... thx, mom19:35
CrownWheelMultbrelch, if I understand correctly, that'll show you what input devices X is actually aware of.  Which may or may NOT include the touchpad...19:35
tgm4883charlton, personally, I think this channel is slightly better than the scripted you help when calling consumer level support19:35
awayyou could use google's nameservers19:35
Ben64tgm4883: then leave?19:35
awayadd a line "nameserver 8.8.4.4"19:35
zykotick9meerkat: i'd guess that would be normal in ubuntu, since resolv.conf is deprecated.  i have no idea what your issue is - just wanted to give you details on the advice away was giving you.  best of luck.19:35
tgm4883charlton, I'm not entirely sure why you insist that me giving pointers to people in an attempt to help them give better support is a problem19:35
MultbrelchCrownWheel, k ... well the touchpad doesn't seem to be listed19:35
tgm4883Ben64, you too^19:35
charltonI have a question about proxy servers, and i am debating whether to use squid or tinyproxy. any suggestions?19:36
x2Hello, everyone. I've got an ASUS laptop with quite a strange touchpad - both its left and and right buttons are a part of touchpad. So, when I hold a finger on my left touchpad button and try to move the mouse pointer, it doesn't move, it's trying to scroll. I have tried setting synclient AreaBottomEdge=1500, but that still blocks mouse pointer when I hold my finger on touchpad button. Anybody had such19:36
x2problems? It's probably not a software problem, because I can move mouse pointer when holding button down. I've googled this problem but met nothing except people complaining the same problem. Maybe one of you had such problems?19:36
charltontgm4883, never said it was.19:36
tgm4883charlton, that's funny, since I've been attacked since the moment I said anything in this channel19:36
bebojis therer any little how-to about adding network printer via cli?19:37
meerkataway, I added google's DNS there. I can now connect to sites. Thank you.19:37
CrownWheelMultbrelch, well the list is a bit cryptic.  I completely missed my "ETPS/2 Elantech" the first time I looked at mine.  And secondly...that tells us that the touchpad is failing at a lower level than X.19:37
Multbrelchzykotick9 and CrownWheel , look here: http://www.pasteall.org/4179219:38
charltontgm4883, the channel is, and your continued complaining is getting on my nerves. i wasnt here when you first got on the channel, and if you stop arguing and focus on giving help, that would benefit everyone.19:38

* tgm4883 rolls eyes19:38
CrownWheelspeaking of help, does anyone know how to connect to a wireless network with a static IP address?19:38
charltoncrownwheel, is your router configured to use one?19:39
CrownWheelUbuntu's (sorry, Xubuntu's) built-in wireless client overrides my ifconfig-specified IP address and tries to use DHCP.19:39
CrownWheelcharlton, yes.19:39
* wilee-nilee ignores the irritants19:39
MultbrelchCrownWheel, I'm sorry "xinput list" outputs ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad <= so the touchpad is there19:39
CrownWheelits settings aren't in /etc/network/interfaces.19:39
tgm4883CrownWheel, doesn't xubuntu use network manager?19:39
zykotick9Multbrelch: i missed the actual problem you are having (but i has a suspition that it was working and either updates or 'you updating to a new ubuntu' caused this?)19:40
planet1Evening19:40
Multbrelchso the touchpad worked and then something happend (I don't know anymore, update may be), and now it doesn't work anymore19:40
kronos003does ubuntu have libvirt and kvm?19:40
MultbrelchOS: 12.04, 64 Bit19:40
x2Well, maybe anyone had problem that mouse doesn't move when there are two fingers on touchpad?19:41
Multbrelchzykotick9, ^19:41
x2I don't want any two-finger gestures, I want touchpad to interpret everything as one finger.19:41
charltonx2, why not just use one finger then?19:42
Multbrelchzykotick9, CrownWheel thx for help, need to go, cheers19:42
x2charlton: I usually aim with one finger and keep another on button ready to click.19:42
CrownWheeltgm4883, I don't know what the utility is called.  it's "panel" plugin doesn't give its name.  Does Ubuntu use a different utility?19:42
bluebomberIn Files in 13.04, typing produces different behavior than in 12.10; it now seems to execute a recursive search. Is there a way to revert the behavior so that it tries to match what I type as a prefix to a file/directory in the current directory?19:42
charltonx2, i see.19:42
planet1What's the easiest way to upgrade from 12.10 Ubuntu to 13.04 Ubuntu STUDIO ?19:43
prjktokay thanks for the help guys19:43
x2charlton: My touchpad buttons are also sensible, so when I click, my mouse moves and I have to aim once again.19:43
tgm4883CrownWheel, no, Ubuntu uses network-manager as well. So if you want to use a static IP with wireless, you need to set the static IP in network manager, not ifconfig19:43
prjkti found http://docs.openvpn.net/how-to-tutorialsguides/virtual-platforms/amazon-ec2-appliance-ami-quick-start-guide/ right on the openvpn site i will follow that instead19:43
x2That's why that feature kills me.19:43
zykotick9Multbrelch: do you currently have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file?  do you use nvidia or ati which require one?  can you paste your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file.19:43
Morph4meCrownwheel : from the taskbar network manager "edit connection " then "add" then from the drop down menu and look for "wifi" .click create ....then the ipv4 or 6 and method to manual at least that is how it is in ubuntu 13.0419:43
charltonplanet1, do sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-desktop19:43
planet1charlton: ok thanks thats the web-installation method, how about upgrading from a DVD ? Is a live upgrade still supported / possible ?19:44
zykotick9planet1: fyi, charlton is wrong, dist-upgrade does NOT upgrade to new releases!!!19:45
tgm4883charlton, 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' won't upgrade him to 13.0419:45
charltonplanet1, im not sure, as i dont use ubuntu studio. i would recommend the web method, as that is easiest and you keep all of your stuff19:45
zykotick9!dist-upgrade19:45
ubottuA dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.19:45
Nothing_Muchisn't it 'do-release-upgrade'?19:45
mzazaIs the Ubuntu 13.04 supposed to run faster than Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?19:46
charltonplanet1, tgm4883 then do sudo do-dist-upgrade -d19:46
nottaproIs it possible to run ubuntu as my main OS without a hard drive? I have some USB thumbdrives laying about to save data on19:46
charltonmzaza, yes, because of Unity 719:46
CrownWheeltgm4883, Morph4me, thanks.19:46
zykotick9planet1: fyi charlton is probably wrong again.  -d means development release.19:46
nottaproMy hard drive recently signed off permanently and I can't afford a new one so I'm looking into alternative methods of having a useable desktop19:46
Morph4meyw19:47
matias2Hi, after upgrade to 13.04, my unity menu doesn't show up anymore. I already tried `unity reset-icons` and `dconf reset -f /org/compiz`, other users work (guest, new user)19:47
tgm4883charlton, it's 'do-release-upgrade', and you don't need the '-d' option unless you want to upgrade to the development version19:47
CrownWheelnottapro, yes - but...19:47
nottaproI am running from a Live CD of ubunut right now19:47
charltonzycotick9, tmc4883, planet1 Sorry, i did mine when it was still in development *smacks face*19:47

mzazacharlton: When would I expect updates to fix slow nautilus and slow startup, because I had Ubuntu 13.04 for 3 days now and it's buggy and no updates go released yet.19:47
CrownWheelHere's experience I had running Xubuntu from Live flash drives with persistence.19:48
zykotick9!tab > charlton19:48
ubottucharlton, please see my private message19:48
tgm4883zykotick9, yw19:48
charltonmzaza, im not sure. what are your hardware specs?19:48
CrownWheelDue to the way the persistence file's filesystem is created (which I don't fully understand), it doesn't get fsck-ed ... ever.19:48
nottaproCrownWheel: If I had a hard drive, I'd definitely just use that. Unfortunately, given my current circumstances... It's impossible19:48
planet1So can I go directly from 12.10 to 13.04 STUDIO or do I have to do 12.10 -> 13.04 -> 13.04 STUDIO ?19:48
CrownWheelSo, after about a dozen boot cycles, it self-destructs in a flurry of bad-inode messages.19:48
tgm4883mzaza, Unity is suppose to be faster, due to not needing as many resources. That doesn't have anything to do with startup time, and probably not nautilus either19:49
icerootplanet1: 12.04 - 12.10 - 13.0419:49
CrownWheelYou can get around this if you boot another Linux system (eg. from another Flash drive) and manually fsck the "casper" file.19:49
CrownWheelAlso, you can't upgrade the Kernel in a Live flash install.19:49
nottaproCrownWheel: sounds a bit advanced for my current level of knowledge and experience with linux in general19:49
CrownWheelThat doesn't seem to be documented anywhere.  And the updater is unaware of it, so it'll waste a HUGE amount of time trying and failing.19:49

mzazacharlton: Sony Vaio S, i5 (2.5 GHz upt to 3.0) processor 3rd generation with 3 MB cache. 4GB RAM, 5400rpm harddisk19:49
planet1iceroot: the starting point would be 12.04 and the aim would be STUDIO (13.04)19:50
zykotick9planet1: it ubuntu-studio is some metapackage (i don't know what it's really called, or if it even exists), then it really doesn't matter when you install it.  i'd suggest after you upgrade to the new release though (expect issues with that) - best of luck!19:50
CrownWheelnottapro, yeah...for me too.  I just figured you should know what you're getting into.19:50
wilee-nileeCrownWheel, You can make a casper-rw partition as big as you need and have space for.19:50
tgm4883planet1, do you have a separate /home partition?19:50
CrownWheelwilee-nilee, it's not a matter of running out of space.  It simply didn't survive very long.19:50
icerootplanet1: you have to do through every release. only from an lts to an lts is supported, so 10.04 -> 12.04 -> 14.04 everything between needs to hit every releae for upgrading19:50
nottaproCrownWheel: I just need a system that I can use. The computer is my only means of communication with relatives. So I'm kind of desperate here19:50
charltonmzaza, Hmmm, im not sure. i have a crap MSI L1350 with 1GB RAM and an intel atom and it boots in less than 10 seconds.19:51
mzazatgm4883: Since I upgraded from 12.10 to 13.04 and I am experincing very slow nautilus when it starts it takes up to 6 seconds to respond to my click while opening folder and it takes about 3 seconds after I click the x button to close the nautilus to get closed.19:51
wilee-nileeCrownWheel, I have only seen it fill up, its not cleanable.19:51
zykotick9iceroot: planet1 is only upgrading 1 release - they just think the ubuntu-studio is another...19:51
mzazacharlton: And nautilus is very slow, I could upload a video on youtube to show you how long it takes to respond to my clicks19:51
bagelongAnyone know of a solution to the broadcom wireless issues following upgrade to 13.04?19:52
CrownWheelwilee-nilee, and I've seen the persistence file in several Live Flash installs self destruct with plenty of free space remaining.  Like I say, fsck-ing from another machine on a regular basis keeps them going.19:52
CrownWheelnottapro, if you have 2 Flash drives, use one for file storage and boot off the other.19:52
charltonmzaza, i honestly dont know what to say. what is your resource usage during normal use?19:52
nottaproCrownWheel: How often must I do that?19:52
planet1in 12.10 this Boot-Upgrade (REALLY HATE THAT) was indroduced as a replacement for the ALTERNATE distribution19:52
nottaproCrownWheel: the only problem with booting off a usb is I don't think my motherboard supports it, or atleast I'm not aware of it19:52
CrownWheelThe Live distros work great.  Just not as stand-alone long term solutions.  Or boot from a CD for that matter, where it won't be an issue at all.19:52
planet1what has 13.04 to offer in this regard ?19:52
mzazacharlton: I use vim, g++, chromium and sometimes monodevelop. I don't do much. Any the nautlius lag even happens if I have anything closed.19:53
zykotick9CrownWheel: i've had nothing but "issues" when i tried using persistance with USB drives.  now, i don't bother, and just install onto the usb drive - no good if you want to install from it though :(19:53

zykotick9nottapro: sorry.  that sucks ;)20:02
CrownWheelSo, I'm gonna' re-iterate my recommendation: boot from CD, plug in a regular, non-bootable USB drive for storage.20:03

jamesaeppoh, CLIs. Nice, but if you're running a server -- most likely you'll have the hardware to run a GUI anyways. That is my philosophy20:30

elo19wilee-nilee: ok but so your primary goal is not "altruistic help to other human beings"..... my bad.... i didnt think "interests" were a big thing here..... i realize i understood things wrong.... i thought that because the word "ubuntu" is closely related to "altruism"...... but here you use the word not in the zulu sense i guess......20:39
talk2me12helo20:39
benzrfhello! I'm in a bit of a pickle!20:40
talk2me12what is the difference between ubuntu and Xubuntu20:40
bennypr0faneelo19 you may be just about correct there20:40
benzrftalk2me12: the default desktop environment20:40
benzrfok, so I was upgrading my mother's windows laptop20:40
bennypr0fanetalk2me12, they use different desktop enviromemnts20:40
theadmintalk2me12: Xubuntu uses Xfce as the desktop. Xfce feels somewhat like the classic Ubuntu (pre-11.04), and is also more suitable for older hardware.20:40
benzrfIt was already partitioned into a C drive, mostly full, and a D drive, mostly empty.20:40
BlueEagle!enter | benzrf20:40
ubottubenzrf: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line. Don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!20:40
wizard_Ais there no other way other than hostpad to make ad-hoc(with internet sharing) visible to android devices??20:40
BlueEagleand !ot for that matter.20:41
theadminwizard_A: Android doesn't support ad-hoc wi-fi networks :/ Blame Google for that.20:41
benzrfWhen installing Ubuntu, I partitioned the D drive (which was only a partition in one physical HD) into one small partition to hold the existing files there, and a new large one to hold Ubuntu.20:41
MiniDactually I'm not too worried considering its a file for a mac lol :/20:42
mzazaxub69: When I try fdisk /dev/sda1 -l I get this erro Disk /dev/sda5 doesn't contain a valid partition table20:42
benzrfThis worked fine and Ubuntu ran well. I then tried booting into Windows, installed on the 'C drive' partition. Windows did not boot properly and just returned to POST in a loop. I then tried booting into Ubuntu, only to discover that it didn't work either.20:42
mzazaxub69: Does that mean anything?20:42
benzrfThe ubuntu loading screen showed up, but after it vanished I only got a black screen while the fan whirred.20:43
theadminmzaza: /dev/sda1 isn't a disk, it's a partition. You want "sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda"20:43
bennypr0faneelo19 however, it's unreasonable to expect the grocery store to sell you a couch, or wahtever. if you go ask for help at the wrong place, you're just less likely to get it, that#s how it works20:43
Psycholiquid71benzrf: sounds like you need grub20:43
mzazatheadmin: How can i view the whole partition layout?20:43
wizard_Athat means i've to use hostpad, but will that be that stable a connection for other laptops in my network??20:43
benzrfMy theory is that Windows failed to boot since I'd altered the partitions and it expected them to be a different size, but while trying to boot it messed with the FS enough to break Ubuntu.20:43
theadminmzaza: sudo fdisk -l, or sudo parted -l for saner information20:43
benzrfPsycholiquid71: I had grub, but after attempting to start the windows recovery tool, grub started complaining about an invalid fs, or something20:44
benzrfalthough I did not actually run the recovery20:44
Psycholiquid71windows recovery tool would try and fix the MBR which in turn would destroy grub I believe20:44
bennypr0fanebenzrf that sounds to me like something went wrong during the repartitioning20:45
mzazatheadmin: This is the URL of the problem "http://askubuntu.com/questions/287491/ubuntu-13-04-after-upgrade-from-12-10-upgrade" and this is the partition layout "http://pastebin.com/knrkYvnv" Why do this problem exist :D ?20:45

shere_khan_jatakk, why?21:33
benzrfbennypr0fane: ok. how do I set it back to being ext4?21:33
jatakksherox: No just navigate to the directory and type "ls -a" and it'll give you all the files in that  directory21:33
bekksbenzrf: The partition type does not indicate onhow it is mounted.21:33
jatakkshere_khan_: Sorry I highlighted the wrong person :P21:33
bekksbennypr0fane: ^^21:33
Jordan_Uneo_user: Network manager supports Cisco VPNs, I'm not sure what you mean by "use native vpn connection method instead of cisco".21:33
bennypr0fanebekks what?21:34
sheroxjatakk: the file itself is not hidden. the file extention and I need to know what file type it is21:34
neo_useroh i mean no need to use cisco client software21:34

sheroxjatakk: is there a way for me to open it without knowing what program to open it in?21:35
bekksjatakk: That will tell you whats in yourfile.21:35
ToAruShiroiNekoyou mean a dynamic virtual disk? why is the disk even relevant?21:35
ToAruShiroiNekowouldnt ubuntu work without a drive?21:36
thechefmy resolv.conf contains only 127.0.0.1. That's wrong it should contain the routers address and it worked before and I didn't make any changes to the system. Why is is set to 127.0.0.1 - how can I fix it?21:36
Nothing_MuchThere's a difference between the dynamic and fixed disk, mostly performance ones21:36
MartynKeigher2i ahve my main wordpress site installed in /var/www/ and i have installed ttrss (http://tt-rss.org/redmine/projects/tt-rss/wiki) in this location  /var/www/ttrss21:36
jatakksherox: Do what bekks said.21:36
kijutsuMartynKeigher2: I've found that using multiple sites on apache2 is easier when you put each site into it's own folder inside /var/www21:37

kijutsuMartynKeigher2: for exapmle... /var/www/wordpress && /var/www/ttrss21:37
Questrephrase: which app is used mostly for multi ssh and has most userbase with support?21:37
MartynKeigher2if i go to http://lab.martynkeigher.com/ttrss  it works fine. BUT if i go to it FROM http://lab.martynkeigher.com it doesnt work.21:37
ToAruShiroiNekoNothing_Much I know but I am only trying to "try ubuntu" rather than installing it, it should load itself only to memory, right?21:38
MartynKeigher2i did that INITIALLY...but it would just not work at all. therefore stuck with /var/www/ttrss21:38
kijutsuMartynKeigher2: then you will need to examine each of the files you have in sites-available to make sure the root directory lines are correct.21:38
shashahello21:38
bennypr0fanebenzrf paste your fdisk -l and your fstab to paste.ubuntu.com, give a link here, and someone will be able to look at it. Also, grub-install should fix whatever is broken there. that's all I can think of for now, gotta go21:38
MartynKeigher2so..if i did reinstall it in /var/www/ttrss, intsead if /var/www/wordpress/ttrss what do i need to do?21:39
MartynKeigher2to get it tot work?21:39
shashawhat's the terminal command to start a new thread?21:39
jailbitcxUbuntu mysql last year you could hijack your system less than a minute. Ubuntu is less secure than windows21:39
kijutsuMartynKeigher2: also -- make sure that the site url is in there under the ServerName line21:39
MartynKeigher2i think the main issue is IF i navigate to the URL from my home page...it wont work. its like i need the theme to NOT CONTROL that URL or something.21:40

bekkssherox: mkdir /mnt/partial; sudo mount -o loop /path/to/yourfile /mnt/partial21:42
Jordan_Ukijutsu: That was a bad choice if you wanted to go a long time without a major upgrade. If you want that, next time choose an LTS release like 12.04.21:43
bekkssherox: That tries to mount it to /mnt/partial21:43
kijutsuJordan_U: PPC 12.04 is kinda wonky21:43
Jordan_Ukijutsu: When 12.10 goes EOL you'll need to upgrade, there's no way around that.21:43
kijutsuwhen is 12.10 EOL expected?21:43

sheroxbekks: the file the mounted in /mnt/partial/ had 2 folders. one had pics and files, the other had access permissions so I could not view its contents. It did mount correctly I'm sure21:57
bekkssherox: So which permissions does that folder have?21:57
kyuubihello, i need help. im dual booting win 7 and ubuntu. win 7 boots up fine but when i try to boot up ubuntu it goes to grub4dos. any help or suggestions?21:58
sheroxbekks: well there are two folders total. one I can assume that I have full, and the other does not even let me open it21:58
bekkssherox: So which permissions does that folder have?21:59
zqfmgbkyuubi - try rescatux21:59
Dr_williskyuubi,  how did you install ubuntu? Grub4dos  is not part of ubuntu last i looked21:59
jmnozsomething seems to be setting my default font in Emacs to "Ubuntu Mono", Where can I change this?21:59
sheroxbekks: how can I check?21:59
bekkssherox: Just run ls -lha in the folder above the one you dont have access to.21:59
bitcxHello22:00
esuluciao a tutti22:00
sheroxbekks: ls: cannot open directory /mnt/partial/lost+found: Permission denied22:00
Dr_willissherox,  lost+found is a special folder owned by root. so thats normal22:00
kyuubidr_willis i made a bootable flash drive and installed it. then when i rebooted it went straight to windows. so i used EasyBCD to add ubuntu to add to the boot menu. when i select it, it goes to grub4. right now, i reformated it and installed linux mint, and the same thing is occuring22:01
bekkssherox: ls -l /mnt/partial/lost\+found22:01
Loshkijmnoz: does M-x set-default-font work for you?22:01
sheroxbekks: lost+found is the folder name that is totally unrelated to my pc22:01
Dr_willis!fixgrub | kyuubi22:01
ubottukyuubi: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub222:01
jmnozLoshki: nope, it's modified outside of customize22:01
sleyterinactiva-Filter failed22:01
bekkssherox: Thats normal. that folder contains lost file fragments after a filesystem crash and recovery.22:01
Dr_williskyuubi,  you should reinstall the grub bootloader.  reformating a filesystem will not erase the bootloader22:01
sleyterwhat is? inactiva-Filter failed22:02
sheroxbekks: I still get permission denied22:02
kyuubidr willis do i run that in grub4?22:02
Loshkijmnoz: something in your ~/.emacs ?22:02
jmnozLoshki: no22:02
bekkssherox: So do you expect to find files in there?22:02
sheroxbekks: yes22:02
Dr_williskyuubi,  the urls the bot gave above detail how to reinstall grub.  a live cd+ the boot-repair tool is the normal way22:03
Jordan_Ukyuubi: There is no such thing as grub4, there is only GRUB4DOS (which we don't support here).22:03
jmnozLoshki: and not in Xresources22:03
bekkssherox: Then get a root shell by using sudo -i and access that folder.22:03
Jordan_Ukyuubi: GRUB4DOS was added by EasyBCD, and you should use EasyBCD to remove it.22:03
kyuubiok. thank you both. im brand new to linux in general.22:03
sheroxbekks: so sudo -i cd /mnt/partial/lost+found ?22:04
bekkssherox: No. Just sudo -i22:04
bekkssherox: Then you will have a shell with root privileges and you can access that folder22:04
SrPxHey guys. Is there a good guide/reference for learning linux commands the right way? Something that explains (briefly!) important concepts such as piping |, this: >> (whatever it is), etc., and lists the most important commands?22:05

sheroxbekks: perfect thank you22:05
Dr_willisSrPx,  look for the Bash books by Oreially (sp?)   'using bash' i think is the name. ;)22:06
