b14d3Alright, having another issue. Ubuntu thinks my HD is full. The only thing on this drive is the OS itself, and I don't have very many programs installed. This has happened frequently recently, I run a program called Bleachbit and it resolves itself. But like an idiot I didn't write down what directory it was deleting.00:16
mediacentaurhisto, bekks: i can mount in nautilus without credentials.00:16

histomediacentaur: try with verbose output mount -t cifs --verbose -o guest //some/server /some/path00:22
mediacentaurhisto, yes. positive. again, i can easily access in nautilus just by clicking network, the share name, and the directory00:22

mediacentaurRefer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)00:23

histomediacentaur: is there any sort of log on the box that's sharing?00:25
mediacentaurhisto, the dumb twonky server has one... but that's not what i'm accessing.00:28
mediacentaurhisto, worth noting... i'm on 13.04... this was working earlier this week when i was using linux mint maya. however, when i upgraded to olivia, the installation  went haywire so i decided to switch back to ubuntu.

mojtabashould I give it the access, or it is spying on people? What about other accounts? like gmail? because I made a gmail account and this question pops up again.02:11
kostkonmojtaba, you are being asked to give permission to ubuntu's online accounts to access your twitter data. it's how twitter works (and many other services)02:12
mojtabakostkon: Is it secure? (I am new to ubuntu and twitter)02:12
goddardb14d3: well try a live distro and see if it runs ok if it does it isn't bad hardware02:12
kostkonmojtaba, probably.02:13
mojtabakostkon: What does it do exactly, if I give permission to this app to have access to my data?02:13
goddardmojtaba: dude google gives access to your data to anyone and sells it haha02:14
kostkonmojtaba, it can then show your twitter feed in gwibber for example or in the dash etc. without asking you again for your credentials. actually ubuntu does not store your twitter credential, it just gets a key that it uses to access your data from twitter02:14
goddardthe ubuntu online accounts are really not needed it is more for mobile devices02:15
mojtabakostkon: Then it is just for showing the result in dash just to me?02:16
goddardyou can use the applications seperately without using that02:16
kostkonmojtaba, or other apps that support the onlines accounts, eg gwibber, i think, and the new app call friends and the dash of course02:16
erpomojtaba: In a nutshell, this gives Ubuntu applications access to your account, so they can do whatever they want with your data. If you trust them, it might be a good idea to authorize them. If you don't trust them, then don't authorize them.02:18
palantirI've googled, but I can't find a definitive answer as to why Ubuntu uses ~/.profile instead of ~/.bash_profile.  It was my understanding these files should be read in order and which ever one is found first is run, but it seems that most Ubuntu howtos say to use ~/.profile, why?02:19
kostkonmojtaba, you can revoke the access at any time by visiting the twitter home page in your browser and clicking on your account settings02:19
goddardmost people let google reach their hand into the data pot for free services and convience so allowing ubuntu to do it would only be fair right :D02:19
erpogoddard: Whether or not people allow a specific entity access to their data depends on how much they trust that entity. For me personally, the first thing I did was uninstall the Amazon lens in Unity, simply for the reason that Canonical should know better than to suck up personal user data by default for no benefit. It's conduct unbecoming a free software developer, and it makes me suspicious.02:22
erpogoddard: That's what's right for me. Other people are going to make different calls depending on how they feel about the entities involved.02:23
goddarderpo: hahah dude canonical is a company and they are trying to make money and so is google i doubt it is trust more ignorance or lack of caring02:23
goddarderpo: so if you give up a little bit of privacy so canonical can make some money it might make the Linux desktop better02:24
goddardjust like if you use google they will read your emails, give it to the government, and market their products to you for using their services.02:25
erpogoddard: I've made my choice. :)02:26

sereTking: thats not right at all.. i get nothing like that with all my labtops.. are you sure its not software related?02:58
jribelisa87: Do you really want to do this as root?  Why don't you install locally for the user?  Or better yet, why not use virtualenv?  Also, paste output of « ls -ld /home/jalal/build /home/jalal/.pip / /home /home/jalal »02:58

Tkingsere this is a fresh install of ubuntu and its my only OS02:59
elisa87what is virtualenv for pip jrib03:00
jribelisa87: virtualenv lets you create self-contained python environments so you don't pollute your system's python03:00
elisa87jrib: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5753597/03:00
elisa87I have never installed packages using pip that's why I am clueless jrib03:01
elisa87jrib: it worked without sudo ...thanks a lot03:01
goddardTking: there is battery top03:02
goddardTking: you can see where all the power is going and possibly stop some of the services or processes you dont need running03:03
goddardTking: ubuntu is kind of good and bad like that where it trys to make sure everything works for the newbie03:03
elisa87jrib:  my bad! it didn't install http://paste.ubuntu.com/5753599/03:03
jribelisa87: what ubuntu version are you using?03:05
elisa87jrib: 12.04 precise LTS03:05
GreyganOK folks, one quick question. I have everything working correctly with the Gnome release of 13.04 but I need to put in a better Nvidia driver. The last two times I tried I hased Gnome out to the point I had to reinstall. Any suggestions on which Driver to use? (Nvidia 7900GTX)03:05
jribelisa87: you can try "pip install --user Glances" It will install to your user's HOME03:06
jribelisa87: or use virtualenv03:06
goddardGreygan: go into ubuntu software sources and install the highest version number listed03:07
goddardGreygan: it is in the additional drivers tab03:07
tgm4883How do you hose gnome by installing a driver?03:08
tgm4883can't you just uninstall the driver and remove xorg.conf?03:08
Greygangoddard: that is what I did last time and could no longer boot into the GUI03:08
elisa87jrib: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5753604/03:08
sereGreygan: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current03:08
Greygank thanks guys. cross your fingers... LOL03:09
jribelisa87: that's pretty broken :/  I guess you will have to use sudo then and install it system-wide03:09
elisa87what do you mean to install it system wide? jrib03:09
goddardGreygan: it should work fine03:09
jribelisa87: with sudo, pip will install it system-wide (in /usr/local)03:10
Greygangoddard: maybe it was something else that killed it. I had installed several items along with the new driver... probably just paranoid since I finally have everything else working right.03:11
goddardGreygan: well no worries man i installed so many times when i first started03:11
goddardGreygan: better to get good at it than be afraid of failing03:11
GreyganLOL this is my 8th install03:11
GreyganI have learned alot though03:12
jribelisa87: it could somehow be related to the fact that you have pip in /usr/local/ instead of using the repositories.  Though I'm not sure exactly how.03:13
sereGreygan: how did it go?03:15
Greyganstill installing03:15
sereGreygan: oh ok :x03:15

nydelquestion (string manipulation from command line): if i'm doing "cat file | grep string" but i want to cut each returned line off after the character "M" ?03:26

boohShould I upgrade to 13.04 ?03:31
kostkonbooh, add just the ppa canonical-qt5-edgers/qt5-proper then03:32
kostkonbooh, but if you also add the other one, the ppa:ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa, you will also get the latest qtcreator03:33

boohok I give it a try..03:38
Greyganbtw, this is exactly what happened before. I just didnt bother trying to fix it and just reloaded.03:39
sereGreygan: there is a key combination to change the resolution...i think its shift plus alt plus + at the same time03:42
b14d3I actually am having the same problem as Greygan but with an ATI card03:42
Greygansere:: cool thanks. I will try that and be back shortly (had to boot in to the horrid Windows load)03:43

Matthew_MooreHey Guys, whats the command to launch Guvcveiw?  i am trying to create a Shortcut.03:59
sereGreygan: you can install irssi (console irc client) and switch between terminals like you talked about so you dont have to reboot to windows04:00
Greyganah OK04:01
Greyganapt get irssi ?04:01
HeyMan7-CloudWhen I open the program (wom - minecraft classic client) it works fine until I click and always displays a menu04:01
sereGreygan: by any change did you try CTRL ALT + or - sorry i told you wrong04:01
sereGreygan: sudo apt-get install irssi04:01
HeyMan7-CloudDoesn't make sence if you don't know what wom is04:01
HeyMan7-CloudIts java based04:02
Greygansere: yes I tried ctrl alt +/-04:02
sereGreygan: once installed connect to a server with /server irc.freenode.net and channel with /join #ubuntu04:03

SullaneHey can anyone help me get rid of linux and redownload windows (I04:03
Greygank brb in terminal04:03
Sullane'm trying to dual boot it and windows cd isn't running with linux)04:03
sereGreygan: ok04:04
HeyMan7-CloudDo you have a windows disk04:04
Sullaneit wouldn't boot from the CD though04:04
Sullaneeven if I put it to boot menu and stuff04:04
HeyMan7-CloudWhy is that04:04
Sullaneno clue04:04
SullaneI tried it on my desktop (no linux) and it worked perfectly fine04:04
clctoSullane: error message?04:05
clctoSullane: that is loaded before any linux if you select the disk drive from bios boot options.04:05
clctoSullane: meaning, linux is not the problem04:05
Sullanebut the Ubuntu CD is working perfectly fine04:06
resquewhen i log in through tty i get the error "no home dir", i checked passwd file and there is a dir listed and i checked the permision on the dir and everything is fine. furthermore when i log in through the x window manager i get a login loop where i login and it puts me back to the login screen04:06
HeyMan7-CloudSullane: Have you tried running windows installer (Cd) in Linux?04:06
resquei created a new user using adduser script, the new user fails as well, recently i deleted my home dir and the tmp file. any ideas whats going on?04:07
Sullanewhat do you mean?04:07
greygansere: I am in irssi :)04:08
HeyMan7-CloudWhen you are running Linux, put the Windows cd and try to run the installer04:08
HeyMan7-Cloudput in the windows*04:08
seregreygan: good job :)04:08
SullaneI see a few folders04:08
Sullanean auto run file04:08
SullaneI believe a setup.exe file04:08
HeyMan7-CloudOh, .exe will not run04:09
seregreygan: try this : sudo nvidia-settings --uninstall04:09
seregreygan: then     sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*04:09

m000gleIs there any way to prevent Ubuntu 13.04 from attempting to mount an iPhone?  When I plug mine in to charge, it results in a half dozen pop-ups asking me what to do, whether to launch an application (for photo/audio media) etc.04:10
SullaneI see04:10
ChogyDanhelp, my unity autohide feature is broken.  It won't show with the mouse04:10
resquei think my login issue might have something to do with the /tmp folder i deleted. could some run "ls -ld /tmp" and tell what what permitions it should have04:10
HeyMan7-CloudSullane: What you should have done was installed Windows first, then use wubi to dual boot ubuntu04:11
HeyMan7-CloudThat's what I use04:11
ChogyDanresque: mine is 777, but I think /tmp should be deletable04:11
SullaneYeah I'm trying to put windows back instead of linux04:11
Sullaneand then do that04:11
m000gleChogyDan: Try hitting your super (windows) key, and see if the sidebar and launcher appear.  My Unity has this glitch too, from time to time, but is easily solved by hitting that key.04:11
Sullanenow I'm stuck with Linux which doesn't run unless my power cord is plugged into my laptop04:11
Sullaneprobably due to something about my graphics card04:12
ChogyDanm000gle: yes, hitting the key works, but I want the mouse to work as well04:12
resqueChogyDan: thanks, i have no idea why this is failing then04:12
greygansere: not having any luck with the first command does it need apt-get in front of it?04:12
Sullaneand not able to put windows in04:12
HeyMan7-CloudSullane: Xp?04:12
seregreygan: no you problably dont have nvidia-settings installed04:12
m000gleChogyDan: Not sure, then.  I've just resigned myself to using that work around.  Best of luck!04:12
ChogyDanI try smashing the mouse against the side, and that usually works.  I was trying some other settings, try to get the sensitivity as high as possible, but now it doesn't work at all.  Only the key works04:12
ChogyDanm000gle: thanks  :)04:12
greyganok, on to the purge then04:13
seregreygan: on askubuntu website its sayin if you uninstall everything and basicly start from scratch it should work04:13
SullaneI'm trying to put 7 in. I had 8 previously, but my friend gave me his 7 CD04:13
greygancan you give me the command to purge it again pls? I cant scroll up04:13
HeyMan7-CloudSullane: What brand pc?04:13
tucemiuxhow do we configure video cards nowadays???04:14
lasersresque: What is your "ls -ld /tmp" -- I don't think ChogyDan is correct about deleting /tmp04:14
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto04:14
seregreygan: sure: sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*04:14
resquelasers: now it is 777 root root04:14
HeyMan7-CloudSullane: When you boot up with the cd, try pressing f2 muntiple times04:14
lasersresque: drwxrwxrwt ? You likely miss t if you mkdir /tmp04:15
HeyMan7-CloudSullane: Sorry, not f2, f1204:15
SullaneI've gotten to the boot menu and forced it to load my DVD drive first and also have sent it to load from DVD drive but it it just goes back into ubuntu04:15
resquelasers: yes that is the same output as me drwxrwxrwt 9 root root04:16
ChogyDanresque: do you have space on your drive?04:16
HeyMan7-CloudSullane: So, it works in your friends machine?04:17
HeyMan7-CloudBooting and all04:17
resquelasers:  i deleted my home dir and tmp dir after i rebooted my computer i can no longer login from the x11 desktop manager. i login and then it just takes me back to the login screen again. i created a new user with adduser script same thing.04:17
TheCrownedFoxIs there a way to tell what wireless driver I'm using?04:17
HeyMan7-CloudI'm sure there is a terminal cmd for it04:17

=== _BJfreeman is now known as BJfreeman
greygansere: OK I had to modify the command a bit (sudo apt-get purge nvidia-current) but did that. f7 screen is the same should I reboot now or reload it first?04:18
SullaneI think it has to do with GRUB or something (linux newbie I might just be spouting garbage)04:18
seregreygan: no not yet04:18
greygansere: k04:18
ChogyDanresque: ah, I've had issues logging in with a deleted /home.  again, I don't think /tmp is the issue.  According to debian policy, /tmp should be deleted with every reboot, or at least potentially04:18
tucemiuxsere, thanks! that one did it, now how do I download the drivers for nvidia??  the additional drivers icon is no longer there04:18
resqueChogyDan: thanks for the advice, not sure what the issue is then. if i log in via tty i get the error no home dir using /04:19
HeyMan7-CloudTheCrownedFox: Check this - http://askubuntu.com/questions/96333/what-wireless-driver-am-i-using04:19
seregreygan: were you able to run : sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*04:20
seretucemiux: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current04:20
TheCrownedFoxHeyMan7-Cloud, thanks I'll check it out04:20
seregreygan: you still need to remove the nvidia drivers and then reinstall them before rebootr04:21
ChogyDanresque: i think there are certain files in /home that the GUI stuff needs.  I ended up just reinstalling, cause my issue was a little different.  But it was the same issue: no home directory, couldn't login via gui04:21
greygansere: i ran (sudo apt-get purge nvidia-current) should i go back and do it again with the full command?04:21
tucemiuxsere, then reboot and thats it?04:21
resqueChogyDan: wouldnt the files needed by the GUi be created when i create a new user?04:22
seregreygan: nvidia-curent should actauly be ok04:22
ChogyDanresque: are you using a GUI?  if yes, then I would think yes04:22
tucemiuxsere, ok i installed the drivers, im going for a reboot, brb04:23
greyganso just reinstall the drivers via (sudo apt-get nvidia-current) and reboot?04:23
lasersresque: What's the old username? New username?04:23
seregreygan: yup04:23
greyganerr sudo apt get install nvidia-current i mean.. LOL04:23
resquelasers: old username "user" new username "ben", created using adduser script04:24

sereresque: do you get a X11 error04:27
resquesere: where would i see this error?04:27
seregreygan: i have faith in you :)04:27
sereresque: did it kick you out of X or are you just getting a black screen04:28
resquesere: after login i only see a blank screen for a few seconds, then right back to the login screen04:28
lasersresque: Can you stop lightdm service, go to TTY1, and "startx" -- It might spill out useful information (during, or at end of session).04:29
resquelasers: will do04:29
greygansere: same thing :(04:30
seregreygan: black screen?04:31
tucemiuxsere, installing nvidia-current makes my resolution really big and I don't have an option to change the resolution04:31
seregreygan: sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg04:31
tucemiuxgreygan, no, if you have a blackscreen check to see where ubuntu is sending output to, it could be sending output to onboard video rather than another video card04:32
resquelasers: only error i can see is /root/.Xauthority does not exsist, but i think thats cus i ran startx as root04:32
lasersresque: Interesting. Try running that as ben.04:33
seretucemiux: you can change resolutions in the console with ctrl alt + or -..try that first04:33
greyganI have no onboard video but do have 2 monitors connected... hmm04:33

tucemiuxsere, thats not it, im not talking about the size of the text, the actual resolution, im stuck on 640x800, i think04:34

tucemiuxgreygan, what type of outputs do you use? HDMI needs to be configured, VGA should work04:35
greyganboth HDMI04:35
lasersresque: Ah, nice! We're getting somewhere. :)04:35
greyganerr DVI04:36
seretucemiux: so you can boot into X its just stuck on 640?04:36
tucemiuxsere, would you happen to know how were supposed to change the resolution nowadays?04:36
tucemiuxsere, yes, im going to fireup a command line but if I log out is because ubuntu crashed and logged me out04:37

laserstucemiux: Peeking in /var/log/Xorg.0.log is usually more than enough. Also, for Nvidia/Nouveau... you can try "lsmod | grep ^n"04:41
tucemiuxwhat happened?04:41

seretucemiux: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current04:46
tucemiuxvoidray, thanks! nvidia driviers installed, let me reboot and see what happens04:47
ChogyDanSullane: i think you just have to make sure the proper boot device is selected in the bios, then windows needs to take over.04:47
seretucemiux: dpkg -l | grep nvidia : will tell you what driver version04:47
ChogyDanresque: did you have the -m switch in the adduser command, like: sudo useradd username -m -s /bin/bash04:48
resqueChogyDan: yes i did04:48

DemosthenexWdae: excellent observation. so you make a specific directory to share, not share-all05:30

=== oh is now known as Guest84983
sereSlash_Fury: you need to mark the ext4 partion as / and then add a swap which should be double the amount of your ram05:48
wilee-nileeswap only needs to be slightly more than ram05:49
serewilee-nilee: from what i read i thought it was double?05:50
clctoyou dont even need swap if you have a decent amount of ram. but if you want to hibernate (suspend to disk) you need at least the amount of ram you have05:50
clctosere: that is out dated05:50
wilee-nileesere, used to, I guess, but not needed.05:50
serewilee-nilee:  oh ok...i am kinda stuck doing things the old way :x05:51
serewilee-nilee: thats 3 gigs i wasted on nothing :x05:52
Wdae@Sere, wait for next release :]05:52
wilee-nileesere, you can delete it and make one the size you want exspand the other partition to it.05:52
Wdaeyes, from a live cd05:52
Slash_Furysere: What do I actually need to copy over to the SSD for Ubuntu? I'm guessing I don't want to just do a cp -r * of my live usb drive :P05:53
clctoSlash_Fury: you have to install it05:53
WdaeYes, just install it normally.05:54
WdaeLike you would with a normal hdd.05:54
serewilee-nilee: i will probably end doing that then.. thanks :)05:55
Slash_FuryThat's the problem. If I try using the standard install wizard, when I get to the "Installation Type" part, I can't continue. If I simply hit "Install now", I get an error saying "No root file system is defined." If I mess around with any of the partitioning options, such as the "+" or "-", it crashes.05:55
WdaeSet "/" on your ext4 partition05:55

Slash_FuryWdae: Already there. I have my two partitions on sda, sda1 (ext4, "/") and sda2 (swap).05:59
clctoyou dont need to label it, that isnt the issue. just wipe the whole drive with no partitions on it and then run the installer06:00

Slash_FuryStill curious why the installer kept crashing, though06:07
WdaeI fixed something! :D06:08

cfhowletttripelb, you have the ISO?  startup disk creator in ubuntu will make USB or cD07:07
Jordan_Udevslash_: You should *not* use Apple's bootcamp utilty. It will create an ugly "hybrid MBR" which is only needed for Windows on intel macs.07:07
devslash_then how do i create the partition ?07:07
adi__any way to extract certain file from tar.lzo (knowing its path inside)?07:08
devslash_i thought that normally you create 2 partitions. 1 for mac and 1 for windows. then you boot the ubuntu cd and partition the windows cd as a linux partition07:08
Jordan_Udevslash_: The Ubuntu installer will resize your OSX install and create partitions for Ubuntu automatically (or you can do it manually, but there's not much reason to).07:08
Jordan_Udevslash_: No. I highly recommend against that as it will create a "hybrid MBR" and hybrid MBRs are ugly and cause problems.07:09

jattthere is also The Official Ubuntu Book it's a little bit advanced08:59
in0culashadowmancer_, yes all this stuff, where for example unity is located and the folders and config files09:00
DJonesin0cula: As jatt said, the best way is just to use it, break it, and then work out how to fix it using the various websites giving advice (askubuntu, ubuntuforums etc)09:00
in0culaDJones, ok that a way09:00
in0culaI hope to find a schema09:01

in0culaok, thanx for your answer09:02
xrcbut it says a package that it depends is not going to be installed09:02
DJonesxrc: You probably need to give more details such as what you're trying to install, what version of Ubuntu and whether its from the official repo's or a ppa09:05
shadowmancer_anyways I'll keep poking if i figure anything out i'll see if i can leave a note somewhere09:06

xrcDJones, I am stuck on trying to install unity-system-compositor (09:07
DJonesxrc: I've not played with it, with it being from the ppa and being part of the default repo's I think you'll probably get more help if you join #ubuntu-mir which looks to be the support channel for Mir while its in development, its probably a quiet channel so you may need to be patient for a reply though09:08
DJoneswhoops, that should say, not being part of the default repo's09:09
xrcDJones, thank you. I was not getting any replies from them so I decided to ask here. Also the thing that bothers me was that I was able to install it via command-line09:10
xrcDJones, only to find after a sudo apt-get upgrade that it fetched some new versions of the server thus killing the previous upgrade09:11
xrcDJones, for a second I thought it's a more generic question with packaging issues here ^^09:11
xrcDJones, thanks anyway, I'll get it on their channel and wait for replies there09:12
DJonesxrc: I guess it could be a number of things, without knowing anything about it, the Mir channel is probably the safest bet, or if there is a contact email on the ppa, that could be worth a shot09:12

shadowmancerHey all ... I think I might have figured out what was the issue, I realized I was using the wrong build >.< I was using a 32bit build for a 64bit system, meaning the init file in /sbin/ couldn't be run10:01
datahi, i have a problem with, I think, custom mouse pointers in certain applications. i.e. they do not appear, e.g., in spotify, skype, java applications and others. is there a way to disable them? I have changed cursor themes and am at a loss10:03
varunendra_shadowmancer, do you mean your hardware is 64 bit capable and you were trying 32 bit ubuntu?10:03
shadowmancervarunendra_:  didn't think about it until I read another error the log was spitting out and checked into that and was like ... really ... because I realized all the info on my build was for 32 bit10:04
varunendra_shadowmancer, that should never be a problem. It is an issue only when the condition is opposite (i.e. trying to run 64 bit on a 32 bit system)10:05
shadowmancervarunendra_:  :/ hmmm still willing to give it a shot since i'm out of ideas :P I am out of ideas and might as well run a 64bit os on a 64 bit processor10:06
varunendra_shadowmancer, did you try the recovery menu options in the advanced grub menu? Especially - failsafeX (safe graphics mode)10:07
shadowmancervarunendra_:  yep, still gave me the Kernal Panic issue10:07
shadowmancerKernel *10:08
varunendra_shadowmancer, have you run memtest to test your RAM?10:08
shadowmancervarunendra_:  would that effect the locating of the init option, because I am noting that the live usb is running which I would think would mean that the RAM would be fine10:09
varunendra_shadowmancer, not necessarily. A memory leak can cause weird behaviour at different instances of OS loading or its working.10:11
varunendra_shadowmancer, take a look at common kernel boot options : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Common_Kernel_Options You can add them to kernel boot line by pressing "e" at grub menu.10:11
shadowmancervarunendra_:  hmmm thanks for the link, i'll see what I can do and see if it works, still going to wait for the 64bit build though10:13
varunendra_shadowmancer, do you have any thread on ubuntuforums regarding this issue?10:14
shadowmancervarunendra_:  Not really, I found 101 different threads with similar though no specific answers10:14
varunendra_shadowmancer, that's only because there is really no specific reason for the error you are getting. Most often it is a buggy driver - most often the graphics one. But it can be anything from a corrupt image to a misconfigured BIOS or even partitioning.10:16

marianne_'morning guys. Is it possible for this app to come across the ISP as being a bot?10:34
michael87Anyone need any help activating transparency in ubuntu 13.04. I am loving that i figured this out XD10:34
uovobwhi *. i am googling for an answer but i keep finding input-related answers. which packages do i need to install to get support for chinese/korean/japanese characthers and charsets in a Qt application that runs on an ubuntu 12.04 ? tia for the time10:35
bekksmarianne_: For which app? What do you mean?10:36
bekksmichael87: Its in the settings :)10:37
michael87bekks, erm what settings? I had to use dconf10:37
marianne_bekks: smuxi irc client10:37
bekksmarianne_: And what do you mean by your question?10:38
bekksmichael87: dconf edits settings, too :)10:39
marianne_bekks: I got an email from my ISP saying there is a bot on my system... I ran all the usual checks and came back clean on all platforms (running windows, OSx and ubuntu on my LAN)10:40
michael87omg this is awsome. I was worried ubuntu would shut off transparent windows after ubuntu 12.10. but its back and I am loving it. Life will be awsome without windows XD. 8 is flat and dead to me and I have a gut feeling they are going to fxxk up windows 710:40
marianne_I'm thinking that the 'bot' identified is actually the way this program works and the fact the ISP is just lamesauce10:40
lasersmarianne_: Can't you ask your ISP for more information than a bot?10:40
michael87plus I don't think I can live without hot corners now lmao10:40
marianne_lasers: I'm going to, but just got the email late last night10:41
bekksmarianne_: So "way" an IRC application works isnt identified as being a bot. Its just an IRC application. Did you got further information about that "bot"?10:41
michael87does having transparency on effect battery life in ubuntu?10:42
prooty1hello. i have an application that when run from .config/autostart takes a long time to quit during shutdown.10:42
bekksmichael87: Every eyecandy does.10:42
marianne_bekks: going to talk to the ISP today and see what they are showing from their side. IT could be that this is just a scam to get me to buy into their 'protection package'10:42
JewInSheepsClothWireshark ! anyone know about the wireshark and the snmp-mibs-installer error "E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?"10:42
JewInSheepsClothi ran apt-get for snmp-mibs-installer10:43
JewInSheepsClothand got these two errors10:43
michael87bekks :(. even with tlps? the battery saving program for linux?10:43
bekksJewInSheepsCloth: Thats just an error that somearchives arent available on the repo servers currently. Its not a wireshark issue.10:43
prooty1but when it is run from a terminal it exits quickly. does anyone have an idea what the difference could be?10:44
bekksmichael87: Even with whatever - eyecandy and bling bling affect battery lifetime.10:44
JewInSheepsClothbekks: so do i wait and run the apt-get update later?10:44
JewInSheepsClothbekks: it said something wicked happened10:44
bekksJewInSheepsCloth: Either wait or just use other download servers.10:45
michael87bekks, meh. I'll have to accept that then. and from personal experience unity takes up less on battery then kde. and the new window snap on 13.04 is fantastic XD10:45
JewInSheepsClothwhat is this "Something wicked happened resolving 'th.archive.ubuntu.com:http' (-11 - System error)"10:45
bekksJewInSheepsCloth: A DNS problem.10:45
JewInSheepsClothis that my thailand server10:45
bekksJewInSheepsCloth: Most likely it is a problem on your client side, not on the server side.10:46
JewInSheepsClothwhat does client side mean ? i am doing something wrong ?10:46
bekksJewInSheepsCloth: client is "your computer".10:46
JewInSheepsClothoh lord10:46
bekksJewInSheepsCloth: We dont know what you are doing, so we dont know wether you are doing something wrong.10:47
JewInSheepsClothbekks: so how do i run it again or whatever10:47
JewInSheepsClothbekks: just keep trying ?10:47
bekksJewInSheepsCloth: Just check your DNS settings.10:47
JewInSheepsClothbekks: where do i do that ? is it my gufw running ?10:47
bekksJewInSheepsCloth: gufw has nothing to do with your dns settings.10:47

JewInSheepsClothbekks: how to check them /10:48

michael87god ubuntu 13.04 is so feature riched. I am just going to have to dualboot with windows 7 becuase at this point all its good for is games lol. if I had a much sicker graphics card most of my games would probably run fine with wine though. still haven't decided if wine is a good replacement for windows yet. don't think so save ripping dvds with magic dvd decryptor10:52
lasersmichael87: Get PS4 and you're set. No more dual boot. :)10:55
michael87lasers, lol thats one way to do it. but frankly I am not happy with sony making the ps4 not backwards compatible. its the ps2 to ps3 all over again. No If I am to enjoy my older games on a newwer system I am going with pc gaming. I have both 360 and ps3 and love them both. I am very very displeased with the no backwards thing especially since I freaken love skyrim and want to sup up the graphics XD10:59

michael87k-joseph, frankly you should try 13.04 its miles ahead of 12.04 despite it not being a long term. freaken rocks11:00
k-josephmicheal87: is'nt there any other solution to that besides changing to 13.04?11:01
lasersmichael87: I disagree. I'm sure he chose LTS for a reason (and upgrading is not always a solution; See XboxOne ; Lulz).11:01
lasersk-joseph: Alsa or Pulse?11:02
k-josephlasers: surely, and am currently running so many things with ubuntu and would not like to inconvenience my self11:03
michael87lasers, very funny you are. and I agree with you on that. But the features and speed of 13.04 has me inthralled and done with 12.04 lol. respect though for stayying with lts. waiting for the next lts myself but I'm going to just jump every 9 months. and if they ever mess up I'll go for lts. it is free after all. Much ubuntu and linux love XD11:03

ubukoui contacted sony and sony told me that it void the warranty to install linux11:06
lasersbasss: What terminal and did you modify ~/.bashrc or something like that? (like PS1 for instance)11:06
ubukouany ideas?11:07
ubukouisnt that ILLEGAL!?!11:07
bekksubukou: ubottu just gave you some clues.11:07
michael87bekks, understandable. but again in my personal opinion, speed compatibility and so forth, raring is fantastic. and I recommend it to anybody. but yes I tell anyone not running linux jumping ship about hte 9 months support and lts has longterm till I think 2015.11:07
jribubukou: so install windows again and deal with sony11:07
bekksmichael87: Wrong. 12.04 LTS is supported until 2017.11:07
ubukoujrib, they want me to give 80 euros and buy the recovery disks.11:07
bassslasers: im using the nonrmal shell and i did not modify .bashrc11:07
jribubukou: use the image you used before11:08
ubukoujrib, how does that sound. god i have sony. last time i deal with them. its my gf laptop11:08
ubukoujrib, i installed linux to see what happens. formated the disk :S11:08
michael87bekks, oh. ok fine 2017. anyway I tell them 5 years long term support. but I am not the only one that is enjoyying 13.04 when compared to 12.04 in my town now :)11:08
ubukoujrib, they dont give you disks the have a partition that contains the image11:08
jribubukou: what exactly happens on ubuntu now?11:08
kousthubhey moto...11:09
kousthubsorry guys...11:09
bekksmichael87: Well, that decision isnt based on "oh lord, look at that eyecandy".Personally, I dont even care about transparency, eyecandy, whatsoever - I care about being able to work with my linux boxes.11:09
ubukoujrib, when i tried to apt-get update it gave me a black screen. i dont have the laptop with me now. it was a screen i ve never seen in lunix.11:09
mar77iubukou: you don't want a warranty that tells you what os to use11:09
ubukoujrib, i know its not a lot to go on with11:09

bassslasers: im using osx & the server is ubuntu 12.04 minimal11:10
jribubukou: there's not much we can do if you don't have access to the laptop.  If you want to try to troubleshoot from ubuntu, come back with the laptop.  If you believe it's a hardware issue, deal with sony.  I doubt that installing linux voided your warranty, but I'm sure they won't provide support for it (linux)11:10
DJoneskousthub: Don't do that11:10
bekksubukou: Yes, and thats legal.11:10
kousthubsorry, he's new to irc..ma friend11:11
bekksubukou: And there is nothing you can do about it. Or just ignore the void of warranty and follow the clues ubottu gave you.11:11
michael87bekks, I'm sencing hostility. I just think that eye candy and speed will bring in newwer users easily and accessiblity. I'm all for more open source users over microsoft after choices like windows 8 and xboxone.11:11

suigeneriswhy me, god? why me?11:47
laserssuigeneris: Can't you reboot instead of using LiveCD and fix it from there?11:47
laserssuigeneris: Using nvidia blob for nvidia card is very common. You're just new.11:48

Kh4xToRhi_, can you leave the part of "blowing your brains out" out the equation for now please?11:51
laserssuigeneris: Okay. Go there. Read !nvidia. You want to install nvidia, nvidia-settings, nvidia-xconfig. And then do "sudo nvidia-xconfig" -- That should generate a new xorg.conf -- then you reboot.11:51

SteveBellis this expected? anything I can do about this?12:08
suigenerislasers: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5754669/12:09
Ben64SteveBell: might be reserved space for root12:09
SteveBellit's not the system drive. Ben 64 what would that mean?12:10
bgardnerfoo357: Have you already done 'sudo apt-get remove mypackage:i386' ?12:10
Ben64SteveBell: exactly what it sounds like.... reserved space. for root.12:10
Anil-Bafilai have pasted it12:10
SteveBellso how much space would be reserved for root on ex harddisks? Ben64?12:10
Ben64SteveBell: i think by default its 5%, you can change it though12:11
laserssuigeneris: Try "apt-cache search nvidia-xconfig" too -- It may be packed in different package.12:11
SteveBellany reason I might want to keep that reserved space? I don't think I need it. its a harddrive I use for movies. that's all.12:12

Anil-Bafilacan any one suggest a link to solve flash player controls not working problems i have already gone to askubuntu.com i am using ubuntu 12.0412:14
SteveBellBen64:  so I need that reserved space? hfs doesn't seem to use such reserved space. But I'm not a systems guy so maybe that reserved space is a good thing?12:14
suigenerislasers: 13.04 and dpkg error not fixed even though I followed that link12:15
Ben64SteveBell: no, not needed. just things can get fragmented without it12:15

suigenerisBen64: NVIDIA Corporation G98 [GeForce 8400]12:16
Ben64suigeneris: ok good, you should be able to use the newest drivers12:17
laserssuigeneris: Erm. Trying to help you. Odd that there aren't nvidia-xconfig. I'm thinking it might be in nvidia-settings (or you may have to enable few more things in /etc/apt/sources).12:17
suigenerisBen64: but someone (I don't remember who) said I needed to use <=17312:18
Ben64shouldn't need an xorg.conf12:18

acerimmerarne__, absolutely!  clone it then disconnect it and don't touch!14:37

tgm4883ubuntu11, so do 'sudo ufw disable'14:38
arne__thanks genii. Does the dis tool in ubuntu do the same thing as the tterminal command when imaging?14:38
ubuntu11<tgm4883> yes i diable firewall..did evrything..but still few tcp ports are open..14:39
geniiarne__: Yes, it doesn't care about what's on the drive, it just makes a bit-for-bit image of the contents14:39
arne__Because I saw I can create a disk image from the GUI disk tool. ddrescue is a bit more advanced since it copies even with drive errors?14:39
tgm4883ubuntu11, yes, because you don't understand how networking works.... you need something to listen on those ports. It would probably just be better if you told us exactly what you are trying to do14:40
suigenerislasers, is there a text-based installer? I didn't know14:40

shoaibi dont want windows14:48
shoaibi want one os that is ubuntu14:49
arne__Do you want to keep the windows files though?14:49
acerimmershoaib, well that makes it easy!  boot your ubuntu cdrom/usb, format your hdd and install ubuntu!  Note: on an older machine, you might wish to try xubuntu or lubuntu instead14:49
ActionParsnipshoaib: if you only want Ubuntu then boot to the CD and tell the installer to use all the available space, it will destroy your Windows install (so be sure your backups are good) and then install14:50
shoaibi made a cd for 12.04 lts i then pressed f12 then i selected cd rom then it said boot from cd then after 5 min it went back to xp14:50

shoaibjust iso file14:53

ActionParsnipshoaib: if your system can boot USB, you can use unetbootin to make a bootable USB stick14:56

shoaibit has some option in my bios liek usb-hdd and many14:57
shoaibi have 2gb can i do it14:57
ActionParsnipshoaib: download the app, plug the USB stick in and point unetbootin to your ISO you downloaded14:57
ActionParsnipshoaib: the ISO is 700Mb, so yes14:57
arne__and if you choose Ubuntu Live 12.10 or so, you can also add some space for persistent storage of files, like 2 gigs14:57

Zappierchrisdaftykins: I mean boot into windows, sorry16:02

geniiarne__: Ubuntu doesn't seem to have affs support ( mkfs.affs doesn't exist when searched for on packages.ubuntu.com for instance ). You may need to do it by physically plugging it into the Amiga and formatting it there16:05

MultiplyIs there a way to get a specific users envrionment variables, instead of the current user?17:16
=== shantorn- is now known as shantorn
skuftMultiply, for what17:17
MultiplyIt's kind of a node specific problem, where I spawn a process, with a specific uid, gid, and cwd, it takes the envrionment variables from the parent process, instead of the user, so stuff like $HOME and so on, are bad.17:18
roastedI'm trying to get my touchpad to work without enraging me. I enabled "disable while typing" but it's obvious this feature does absolutely nothing whatsoever. I also enabled it via synclient in the terminal, but it also did nothing. Is there a way with synclient to say the touchpad is disabled for 1 second when keys are struck?17:19
Multiplyskuft, so I thought of loading the variables in the start of the script, and pass them on, later when spawning processes.17:19
skuftMultiply, sounds like a good plan.17:19
MultiplyYet, how do I do it?17:19
tgm4883Multiply, I believe you could just "export HOME=<path here>"17:20
Multiplytgm4883, but I'd like to have _all_ user variables, for the given uid17:21
MultiplyAlso, if root has special variables, the processes will be able to see these.17:21
MultiplyNot that I think it's a great security issue, it's still there.17:21
tgm4883Multiply, I guess I don't understand17:22
tgm4883Multiply, you are running the script as a different user, and the variables such as HOME are wrong?17:22
tgm4883Multiply, why are they wrong?17:22
Multiplytgm4883, process A (run from root) starts process B (run from other user and group), but has the variables of root.17:23
MultiplyIt's a huge problem.17:23
tgm4883Multiply, sounds like process A should switch users before running process B17:23
tgm4883Multiply, but we're talking really generic stuff here17:23
Multiplytgm4883, reason it's run from root, is because it needs to listen on port 80 :P17:24
MultiplyElse I'd just run it as the actual user.17:24
tgm4883Multiply, uh, a user process can listen on port 8017:24
Multiplytgm4883, then I still need to fix the issue for mac users.17:25
MultiplyActually, I might just skip mac support for now anyway.17:25
MultiplyIt's still an issue, if I want different user support tho.17:26
sharadMhey all. anybody here using bigbluebutton on ubuntu?.17:26
MultiplyIf not all projects are run from the same user.17:26
tgm4883Multiply, I'm not 100% sure what you are trying to do, but I'm fairly certain that you are doing it wrong17:26
tgm4883Multiply, so the Process A runs as root, and that spawns off other processes that need to be run as specific users?17:27
Multiplytgm4883, yes.17:27
MultiplyAnd if the other processes executes, say "whoami" it shows the correct user. Yet $HOME is /root17:28
tgm4883Multiply, so why can't process A just start process B as the specific user?17:28
MultiplyI guess it's a node-specific problem, as I mentioned earlier. I was merely looking for a simple fix.17:28
tgm4883how are you spawning process B?17:28
MultiplyUsing node's API for doing such. :P17:29
Multiplybut then it gets to be a node issue.17:29
tgm4883ah, node is a piece of software17:29
tgm4883a terrible name IMO17:29
Multiplytgm4883, so is Apple. :P17:30
tgm4883Multiply, true, but less of a bad name than node17:32

tinjawI have a package conflict and I am on 12.04 LTS, which I (apparently) wrongly thought would avoid dependency conflicts. But now I have one. I am attempting to install Grizzly/OpenStack and hit a snag. http://pastebin.com/5c8x4ZtW18:08
garrettkajmowiczGreetings! I updated my server from 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS this weekend. Now the default kernel drops me to busybox on boot. Booting an old kernel still works. Root device is a RAID1 md device. From busybox shell it mounts without a problem. Any suggestions?18:09

ghotiI have a deployment question that I'm sure someone will have a quick answer to.  Not sure where to ask, so pls excuse me if this is slightly off-topic. :)18:21
ghotiI've got about 60MB of assets (JPG, MP3, etc) associated with a software project that gets updated a few times per month.  Because the assets may change with the software, we redeploy versioned assets with each release.18:21
tinjawHow do I determine why apt/aptitude shows different dependencies than http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/net/tgt18:21
=== illovae_ is now known as illovae
ghotiTo streamline the deploy process, I'm thinking I'd like to do something like (1) copy the old asset directory to a new location (or perhaps duplicate the tree and hardlink the files), then (2) rsync -overtop of any files that have changed, unlinking things that are removed, and unlinking files to upload before copying in the new files.18:21
ghotiIs this a good strategy?  Is there a better one?  Are there tools that help handle this, or is it basically a roll-your-own kind of thing?18:21

chaudharyUbuntu 13.04 is a stable version ?18:30
clctoi mean, apparently the "system reserved" partition needs to be primary, but that may not be true with grub18:31
clctoas grub will be the active partition, but anyway i just usually do /boot / and windows primary, /home and shared on logical partitions18:31
BluesKajcian1500ww, system reserved is probly the windows recovery partition18:31
clctoBluesKaj: no18:32
serei hate the way windows use that system reserved..18:32
clctoit holds the boot code. you dont need it unless you use encryption for your whole drive18:33
geniichaudhary: Yes. But now the support cycle for releases in between the LTS releases is shortened. So 13.04 and 13.10  will only be supported 9 months, then 14.04 will be the next long term support version18:33
tacomasterclcto: yea i do too because if i make them primary i always end up having to do some dumb stuff to get stuff installed like putting it in home dir for the data and just symlink. so much of a hassle, i love using lvm :D18:33

wilee-nileeDaemoen, PPA's are classified as extra and not stable, however I have never had problems, one has to be aware of what they are attached to in apps and releases.18:40
ThothCastelthanks but is LDAP really what I am searching for?18:41
Daemoenwilee-nilee: * nods *  Its like the extra repos we have for CentOS, but sometimes those of us that contribute to the extras are also main channel packagers, so we have a bit more experience with the distro.  was kinda hoping for a similar case :)18:41

nzbA few questions about unbuntu been using windows for a long while and I am finally going to give it a try for a week. How is efficient is it while multitasking compared to windows? How well to virtual machines run ? Which virtual machine software is the most optimised ? Do I need to remove my SLI BRIDGE when installing ? Does ubuntu support UEFI booting? Whats the best way to partition my ssd drive and does trim20:13
nzbwork oob or do I need to set it up?20:13
wilee-nileeuser interfaces Fenb20:13
wilee-nileenzb, One week will hardly educate you in linux.20:14
EmiF-ok thanks bekks20:14
nzbYes but if I enjoy it, it will be longer than a week20:15
bgardnernzb: TRIM works oob.  VMs run excellently.  Multitasking is better than Windows.  But bottom line, wilee-nilee is totally right, a week is far too short for a serious review.20:16
daftykinsnzb: yeah it's something you have to stick at20:16
wilee-nileenzb, Dualboot it and try t out, your questions are not really fully answerable. Primarily I think many keep windows for the games that wont run in linux, most other apps in windows or apple have a comparable app in linux usually a few.20:17
Fenbwilee-nilee: both20:19
nzbAs I said earlier I will give it more time than a week if I enjoy it! So on to my questions ? Do I need to remove the sli bridge before installing ? And UEFI booting is it supported if yes how?20:22

UltimaKRHi everyone...I was wondering if there was anyone who could help me with partitioning my lubuntu hard drive and putting windows on it...the only guides I see online are how to put lubuntu on a windows drive.20:47
daylytanyone remember how to get oidentd working with ipv6?20:48
wilee-nileeUltimaKR, Generally for easy windows repair and maintain access you want it in the first partition on the HD.20:48
kostas_nilee-wilee: it does not boot from usb (or the cd for that matter), it just boots 8.10 (the currently installed os). It could be an old hardware issue, the machine is a Sony Vaio vgn-nr31z/s (approx. 5 years old)20:48
SonikkuAmericaUltimaKR: Mainly because you normally need to install it first, as well.20:48
citricanyone here have problems with Steam locking up your system?20:48
UltimaKRwilee-nilee: So how would I change what I have here? And why does Windows need to be on the first partition?20:49
citricno matter what it locks my system up and forced t hard reboot20:49
SonikkuAmerica!steam | citric20:49
ubottucitric: Valve have officially announced that they are developing Steam and are working with !ubuntu during their development, see http://blogs.valvesoftware.com/linux/steamd-penguins/ for further details, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Valve for install instructions, you can also join #ubuntu-steam for discussion.20:49
wilee-nileekostas_, Have you found that other boot from menu?20:49
ewiUltimaKR: reinstalling GRUB after the windows install adds some difficulty20:49
citricHow can I change GH20:49
kostas_wilee-nilee: negative. I tried F12 and other function keys, could not boot it using either of these, just boots the installed os20:49
citricoops 1 sec20:49
wilee-nileeUltimaKR, If not first the windows install disc or repair will not work easily basically.20:49
ewikostas_: does your BIOS support booting from USB?20:50
citricHow can I change GRUBS resolution? it looks nice on my laptop but on my desktop its HUGE20:50
UltimaKRwilee-nilee: So do I need to wipe this hard drive and start all over but with Windows first?20:50
ewinot necessarily UltimaKR, but it's easier to explain that way20:51
kostas_ewi: it does, this is how I installed 8.10 some years ago, and I checked the bios settings to make sure usb boot is enabled20:51
ewiwhat kind of computer kostas_?20:51
UltimaKRewi: What other way could I do it?20:51
Junos4Lifecan anyone tell me how to change dns servers from cli in ubuntu?20:51
SonikkuAmericaUltimaKR: You can install Windows, then either (a) run Boot Repair from your Live image or (b) install EasyBCD in Windows.20:52
kostas_ewi: a Sony Vaio vgn-nr31z/s (approx. 5 years old)20:52
Junos4Lifetried a bunch of diff ways but nothing works20:52
UltimaKRSonikkuAmerica: What would that do as far as my lubuntu is concerned? Sorry I am not very good at this stuff yet, more of a hardware guy.20:52
wilee-nileekostas_, You will have to get to that menu I think, the bios settings do not always work. You can find on the web info on that computer to use that menu, here is one link. http://superuser.com/questions/258739/sony-vgn-nr260e-external-device-boot20:52
ewiyou can reinstall GRUB via live cd UltimaKR20:53
ThothCastelwhy do we have hosts and hostname files and not just one of them?20:53
=== Guga_ is now known as TA
Junos4Lifeanyone know the cli command for changing dns servers?20:53
=== TA is now known as Guga_
bgardnerThothCastel: I don't know the historical answer for that one.20:53
ewikostas_: i believe f2 is the BIOS settings and then change your boot device order to USB first20:54
=== Shehrazad is now known as ElixirVitae
kostas_ewi: I did change the settings in bios, USB is first but still does not boot20:54
SonikkuAmericaUltimaKR: Using option (a) would force GRUB to recognize the Windows partition and set itself as the bootloader. Option (b) would put the Windows bootloader in charge, but it would detect an Ubuntu installation and generate a boot script.20:54
SonikkuAmericaUltimaKR: I'd help you more but I have to go eat dinner. See ya in a bit!20:55
wilee-nileeUltimaKR, I would not wipe the lubuntu, but clone it with clonezilla, then install windows and reload the lubuntu. Clonezilla will clone and reinstall to a equal or bigger partition, so you need to resize it first. You will have to change the partiion numbers in the save to the one you are re-installing to is all.20:55
ewiJunos4Life: it's in your /etc/resolv.conf20:55
kostas_wilee-nilee: the question in the link presents exactly the problem I have: F12 does not work, and changing the settings in bios via F2 (as the link suggests) still does not boot from USB20:55
UltimaKROk thanks guys I wil think about which route I want to take.20:55
bgardnerJunos4Life: Or, depending on your setup, the resolvconf app.20:55
citricshould /boot/grub/menu.lst be empty??20:56
Junos4Lifedoin it all from cli20:56
wilee-nileekostas_, Sure f12 is not for every computer, so you have to confirm yours will boot a usb, then find the correct key prompts, I think you are okay as far as the kernels.20:56
ewihave your powered off fully kostas_? sometimes usb needs kicked in the ass20:56
bgardnerJunos4Life: As ewi says, start by checking /etc/resolv.conf20:56
kostas_wilee-nilee: I tried different function keys apart from F12, none of them worked (the person posting the question in the link has the same problem)20:57
ewikostas_: try a livecd?20:57
wilee-nileekostas_, What I noticed in the link was instructions for the bios to confirm a external b oot.20:57
ewikostas_: have you tried a different USB stick?20:58
wilee-nileekostas_, Sure, but did you try any you found on the web that supposedly work, some computers need multiple keys to get there.20:58
Saikidoes 13.04 support x86 elf/apps?20:58
kostas_ewi: I tried that too (cd made through an iso) but did not boot. Incidentally my girlfriend had the same problem (not boot from usb) and used a cd. It worked on her laptop, but the same cd does not work in mine20:59
MonkeyDustSaiki  guess you need ia-libs20:59
Inv1s1bleWhat's the right way to create symlinks for your service within a DEBIAN/postinst ?20:59
wilee-nileekostas_, We are assunming here as well that the usb has been loaded correctly, I asked you with what and no answer. I don't believe you have md5summed the download as well, there are a few varibles that may be the problem.20:59
kostas_ewi: positive, I tried two different usb sticks, none of them worked (although one of them worked when I installed 8.10 a few years ago on the same machine)21:00

compdocmaelstorm, have you installed or updated the video card driver recently?21:16
wilee-nileekostas_, Your cause and affect are weak, you are assuming. This menu is available on every computer, short of this particular model having problems you need to find the correct instructions.  There are other ways to install, however more compklex then finding this menu.21:16
maelstormi installed the recommended nvidia driver21:17
maelstormit's a fresh install21:17
zehexxhow to find ramnit.e + his friend using ubuntu manually?21:17
maelstormafter that it asked to install video driver and i chose the recommended one21:17
maelstormit's not just firefox doing it. any app i open i can't click inside of it. i can tab through options but i can't click into it .. i end up trying alot of other things then i can click on things but anything outside of that window i can't click on any more. even if i alt-f4 the application21:18
ewimaelstorm: restricted/proprietary drivers are often buggy, even if it's the "recommended" version21:19
maelstormit must be something recent. : / i din't download the driver i used what the fresh install asked to use .. maybe if i download latest one from nvidia ?21:19
ewiuninstall the nvidia driver and see if the problem persists.  If it goes away, you can't use that driver.  Maybe try one of the non-reccomended ones but they are unlikly to work better.21:20
maelstormallright. i'll try that21:20
kostas_wilee-nilee: any ideas where I can find this? http://supportforsony.iyogi.com/vaio-boot-menu.html doesn't seem to mention anything for direct boot option. I looked and all I found is about getting access to the BIOS settings21:20
maelstormlol i've been bashing my head against the wall all morning trying to get it working .. here we go again21:20
ewisometimes the nv drivers give proper support maelstorm, you just have to find what works best with your particular hardware.  maybe use lspci and google to search your specific video card21:21
zehexxi think i must find it own,,thx21:22

TheLordOfTimeand not the automated assignment, just the name on the one interface.22:29
Ads20000_WITHOUT sudo privaledge escalation Fishscene? No idea22:30
PinguWhats up guys22:31
FishsceneYea. When I want to watch video from that directory, I need to use Sudo or I don't have permission. The group "video" is allowed to access the directory, and I'm a member of that group, so I'm wondering why I don't have access. :S22:32
gordonjcpFishscene: narrow it down22:33
gordonjcpFishscene: can you even stat a file from that directory?22:33
gordonjcpFishscene: also, fine if group video can access the *directory* but what about the files within it?22:34
Fishscenegordonjcp: Well, here's the full story. I have a hardware video encorder that dumps the encoded video over USB to linux. It shows up on Linux under /dev/video0. I can use "sudo multicat "to read the directory and stream it to my network. Everything works just fine. I'd like to run this setup without requiring sudo priviledges to read the "directory". So there aren't any "files" per-say that I'm aware of in the "directory"22:36
FishsceneCome to think of it. I'm using Ubuntu server, but I'm not seeing anything strictly "ubuntu" with my problem. I should ask in #linux22:37
droogieI have installed ubuntu 13.04 on my macbook air, everything is working good - atleast most of the things. One thing does not work that well and that is the touchpad, its to sensitive. When I use the keyboard the mouse suddenly jumps around because of a small touch at the touchpad, is this possible to fix?22:38
gordonjcpFishscene: aha, maybe you need to look into udev permissions22:38
FishsceneI'll look into udev. Thanks for the pointer!22:38

aeon-ltddroogie: there should be options to change that (sensitivity and acceleration) some where, i'm sorry but i'm using ubuntu so i can't guide you. If it's a synaptics trackpad you can pass options through termminal using synclient (synclient -l to list the current config)22:44

ShariffI have installed dnsmasq using apt-get and have added enable-tftp and tftp-root=/bla to the conf file.. Unfortunately those 2 lines cause an error: "enable-tftp: not found" and the same for the tftp-root... Why does dnsmasq tell me it isn't found, while I thought, based on reading in the conf file that tftp should be a feature of the daemon?23:06

pragmaticenigmaraven_: IPtables is meant for routing traffic between networks, but it's not really intended for the purposes you speak of.  Normal network usage is device sends out a packet and expects a response on the same interface23:59
