ctcbjrib, When I originally made the Dev Folder, I had to do sudo su to allow me to create it.01:02
ctcbwilee-nilee, Uh... what?01:02
jribctcb: 1) something is broken with your permissions and 2) use "sudo -i" instead of "sudo su" if you need a root prompt01:03
jribctcb: and "exit" as psingh_ suggested will let you leave the root prompt.  Alternatively, you can press ctrl-d01:03

JcAdduonojrib: you can share directories, yes, but with ftp mount would make my life much easier just hitting ctrl+s in my ide and immediately having changes applied to the vm, dir sharing requires you to copy the file to that folder, than do copy command on guest....very time consuming01:24

MrCollinswilee-nilee, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=161003103:11
MrCollinsabout halfway down is his post.03:12
wilee-nileeMrCollins, with only one post I would be suspicious, the mod oldfred would be the one I follow I know there work. However you will  not break anything with a ntfs, you use the disk manager in windows to format it and then skip the format with the loader.03:15
wilee-nileeMrCollins, The dd options are valid as well.03:16
MrCollinswilee-nilee, I cant do dd. I wish I could. I guess I could load a virtual box, install ubuntu then make disk from there?03:16
wilee-nileeMrCollins, Doh I forgot you were in windows, my bad. ;)03:16
MrCollinsdo you think that would work or would it still have some windows on it03:17

wilee-nileeparallels, THe only tablet orientated download is the ubuntu-touch in development #ubuntu-touch, however ask there on regualr installs as there is a 13.10 as well.03:30
wilee-nileeMrCollins, The ubuntu release, menu.list is grub legacy, we are sort of in left field for me anyway with grub4dos, I suspect the ntfs is part of that.03:31
MrCollinsubuntu release is 13.0403:31

wilee-nileeMrCollins, Ah, get 13.04, 13.10 is a development, the channel for 13.10 is #ubuntu+1 I can't say 13.04 will not act the same but it is supported on this channel.03:33

wheatthinor at least not a very friendly way to install grub03:48
wilee-nileeMrCollins, Is that the stock version aspire one zg5 with 512Mib of ram, a bit old for ubuntu and below minimal requirements even if you got a install. I have a aspire d250 that runs okay but with 2 gigs ram, there is lubuntu though for lower loads.03:53

PepperoniPizzawhat could cause some keys to not show any keycode in xev etc, while xmodmap says they are keycode 122/123 ????04:50
thetenthdrNot really. Ive read through it already, and google searched until my eyes bled, followed quite a few guides, and finally just did a fresh install of ubuntu to see if that helped.04:51
lotuspsychjethetenthdr: did you also check 'additional drivers' to see if some drivers need to be installed?04:51
somsipPepperoniPizza: IIRC, xmodmap -pke tells you the mappings. xev will tell you what key's have what codes. If a key doesn't have a code, the mapping makes no difference. So your keys aren't being picked up correctly. What device is it?04:52
holsteinthetenthdr: have you tried other ubuntu versions live?04:52
holsteinthetenthdr: have you tried the windows driver with ndisgtk?04:52
PepperoniPizzasomsip, its just a logitech wireless keyboard, all my other multimedia keys work fine04:52

thetenthdrIve done it through ndisgtk and ndiswrapper using Terminal with the same results, nothing04:53
somsipPepperoniPizza: you need to find some way of making sure those keys are generating a signal that is being read by Ubuntu04:53
holsteinthetenthdr: try with a known good access point with no encryption04:53
PepperoniPizzasomsip, they aren't as far as I can tell but when I press them the terminal cursor blinks, so it see's the key somehow I just don't know how04:54
thetenthdrHolstein, that's what Im saying. Zero response from the wifi card. Doesnt even attempt to list available access points04:54
somsipPepperoniPizza: does it work with other OSes? Another computer?04:54
PepperoniPizzasomsip, well my other pc is my gaming pc, so it runs windows04:55
thetenthdrholstein, Also, iwconfig doesnt list wlan0, only usb0, eth0 and lo04:55

PepperoniPizzasomsip, about 99.9% sure there is nothing wrong with the keyboard04:56
PepperoniPizzasomsip, i should mention this worked fine in the last version of ubuntu04:56
somsipPepperoniPizza: that doesn't answer what I'm asking. You first need to make sure you do not have a hardware issue, or you could be killing time.04:56
thetenthdrholstein, the card works. This is a dual boot system, right before I reinstalled I booted to W7 and used the wifi adapter04:56

lodenrogueHey guys I just installed ubuntu 12 and I'm still getting the same problem with the resolution07:59
lodenrogueIs there any way to manually set the screen resolution?07:59
vltlodenrogue: xrandr07:59
lodenrogueHi vlt I am new to Ubuntu and linux in general. I know I have to put that in the terminal but not sure what to do with it08:00
halfvollemelkHi, i've got a quick question. I'm using an atheros USB network adapter to create a internet hotspot in ubuntu08:00
halfvollemelkthe NIC in my laptop is connected to a wireless network08:00
halfvollemelkis it possible to share the wireless internet connection using the atheros adapter?08:01
halfvollemelkor does it need to be wired?08:01
vltlodenrogue: For (nearly) every command there’s a manual. Type `man xrandr` (w/o the `)08:01
cfhowlettlodenrogue, dang.  I really hoped that would just work out of the box for you.  Please post your details and be atient.08:01
lodenrogueok thank you08:01
wizrdhalfvollemelk: looks like you want to connect to 2 different networks with one nic08:01
halfvollemelkwizrd: not exactly. i'm connected to a wireless network on my laptop, and i'm running ubuntu in VMware.08:02
halfvollemelkthe VM get's internet connection from my laptop's wireless connection08:03
halfvollemelkand i'm trying to expand it wirelessly using a USB wi-fi adapter in vmware08:03
wizrdjust to be clear on this. Ubuntu host with a VM inside. You want to share the same NIC where the host connects to your network and the VM should use the same nic as a hotspot08:05
halfvollemelkNope, laptop running VMware with ubuntu host inside.08:10
lodenroguecould I get an example of how to use the xrandr command?08:11

freddofrogfolks I'm trying to do an install via virt-install using a local mirror that my ISP maintains.... so I'm entering the details manually.... of course the mirror has a dense tree made up of multiple distro's and versions... my question is: what part of the path is the installer looking for? just the /pub/ubuntu bit or do I need to give the path for the actual version I want or something else entirely?09:28
vorsprungjrib: ah! even numbers09:28
histovorsprung: then next lts will be 14.0409:29
Baattifreddofrog, I think that would depend on the directory tree. I would think if it's an ISP virtual installer, it would be simply /pub/ubuntu... but you know how these things go09:30
freddofrogBaatti, yeah I do :( .... I've tried a few different variations but the installer is choking on it... unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to even examine the error log as I'm installing a paravirt machine and can't alt-f4 to the correct VT09:31
Baattifreddofrog, I don't really know how to help you :-/09:32

freddofrogit's a VM install... rather like doing a pxe install09:34
freddofrogactually scratch that09:34
Baattiyeah I've never done that09:34
freddofrogit's the same stuff that you'd provide if you were booting from a CD but wanted the packages from an ubuntu mirror... but not one of the one's the installer knows about09:34

Baattiso then I did help!09:35
* Baatti encourages himself09:35

T3Xjrib: this is my script's output http://pastebin.com/JfWWPZET  i save the output by using ./scrip.sh >> test.txt .

SerelijahSo, I was given an old, slow-as-a-sloth and apparently riddled-with-malware netbook to use as a guinea pig. What's the best way to go about installing Linux? Install from a boot USB, and there should be an option to install over Windows?10:38

SerelijahGreat. While I'm looking for an empty one I have lying aorund, is there anything I should know about choosing the exact version of Linux? (such as the desktop environment)10:42
blazemoreSerelijah: if it's an old netbook, look at Lubuntu, which is based on Ubuntu but uses the lightweight LXDE desktop environment10:42
blazemoreSerelijah: There are a LOT of distributions of Linux, however. Choosing an Ubuntu official derivative, or an Ubuntu-based distribution like Mint is what I recommend for new users, as it makes it easier for them to find help10:43
SerelijahRight. Though I can always dualboot/reinstall if I need to, don't I?10:43

greenithi, i have accidentally locked out myself from a virtual server (iptables -P INPUT DROP), i already managed to rescue it (host has a rescue-console and i was able to chroot to the system and purge iptables)... however, if i reinstall iptables, will the policies be re-applied (so that i get locked out again), or are they reset?11:29

ubottubootchart charts your machine at boot time, to install >> sudo apt-get install bootchart << the graphic is in /var/log/bootchart after the next reboot11:29

schnufflegreenit: if you saved the rules of course they will be reestablished but as you have locked out yourself I supose you sissn't11:31

BluesKajshurtagul, suggest you download the linux version of flashplayer and extract it from the tarball , then copy the flashplayer.so to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins12:56
sotrudnikMonkeyDust: you can always download them12:57
shurtagulBluesKaj: how would i begin to do that12:57
BluesKajshurtagul, go to the adobe site and download the linux version , think it's the 11.212:58
tomreynactually i guess FDE with 12.04 may be possible using the server installlation image.12:59
shurtagulBluesKaj: which shousld i download, theres four options13:00
sotrudnikfifth option: nothing13:00
BluesKajadobe flashplayer for linux 11.2 version13:00
BluesKajsotrudnik, if there's deb , then that's news to me13:01
shurtagulBluesKaj: i mean, YUM, tar.gz, rpm, or apt13:01
BluesKajis the an apt , the use that13:01
hadrielWhy is my wireless card channel stuck to -1? I can't change it as well, says device is busy.13:01

occhas anyone installed ubuntu on aspire s7(ultrabook)? on some forums it says you need to disable RAID ..... as i understand it RAID is for combining multiple hard disks, and a lot of ultrabooks have this hybrid setup........ however every shop i go to assures me their s7 only has one hard drive in it... are they wrong?13:14
DeLorean731I'm new to mounting drives in Linux. I have a drive that is not auto-mounting (yes, the drive has issues, I'm trying to mount it so I can use ddrescue on it). Maybe it's smart to make sure it's actually not auto-mounting correctly. It is not in /media, this means it's not auto-mounting, correct? I also typed "fdisk -l" and did not see it. How can I manually mount it if I don't see it there?13:16
shurtagulcp: cannot stat `flashplayer.so': No such file or directory13:16
auronandace!mount | DeLorean73113:16
ubottuDeLorean731: mount is used to attach devices to directories. See also https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount13:16
Bower^Workshurtagul, make sure you're either CD'ed into the directory flashplayer.so sits on or provide a full path to it13:16
Bower^Workshurtagul, e.g. ~shurtagul/Desktop/flashplayer.so13:17
PiciDeLorean731: I don't think you need (or want) to mount the drive to use ddrescue.  I was under the impression that you needed to run it against the device node.13:19
bgardnerDeLorean731: Also, ddrescue works with unmounted devices, usually.  Be sure to check the docs.13:19
DeLorean731Pici: Excellent! How do I find the device node? :\13:20
PiciDeLorean731: Do you know what entry it has under /dev/ ?13:20
DeLorean731I actually see it on lsusb, but I don't know which it is under /dev/13:20
DeLorean731I'll try to figure that out, 1 sec13:20
DeLorean731I see the same number of entries in /dev with the drive plugged in and without it plugged in... I'mg uessing that means it's not showing up under /dev?13:22
bgardnerDeLorean731: Check output from dmesg after plugging it in.13:22
shurtagulso the .so file is in my home folder, i did "sudo cp flashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/" but its not found13:23

DeLorean731bgardner: sorry for the delay pastebin.com/nkNKSmp013:31
shurtagulAll i want to do is get this dumb file in this dumb directory13:32
bgardnerbluethundr: Do you have timeouts when you try to connect to the IP address instead of the name?13:32
bluethundrbgardner: good question. I guess I can try that13:33
bgardnerDeLorean731: That looks like you did the command fresh after a reboot, but before plugging in the device (or it was already plugged in during the boot), is that right?13:33
DeLorean731bgardner: that is not right at all13:35
blazemorebluethundr: Edit or create the file ~/.ssh/config and add this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5868091/13:35
DeLorean731bgardner: it's one of the first things I did after waking the computer from sleep, but I have tons of things open...13:35
DeLorean731bgardner: also, the device was plugged in while I did that command13:36
DeLorean731bgardner: lsusb shows the drive interestingly13:36
BluesKajshurtagul, look in your /home/user/downloads folder , is the file there?13:36
bgardnerDeLorean731: I don't see anything in the dmesg output that would appear to relate to your device.  That may mean we just didn't capture enough of it.  Do this instead: 'dmesg | pastebinit'13:37

aaronjlinhi all, I recently found the debian handbook (http://debian-handbook.info) and I was wondering if there was something similar for ubuntu, a sysadmin guide for ubuntu rather than a beginner-level user guide14:36
aaronjlinsomething very in-depth for ubuntu server14:36

KaiForceamrit_: important data has backups.  This was just data.   That being said, you might try something like http://www.ntfs.com/recovery-toolkit.htm14:44
Daraelunknown_had2: In general, on *nix systems, including ubuntu, temporary files go in /tmp or ~/.cache.  Which is appropriate should be easy enough to determine from the name.14:44
kostkon_Pess_, to make sure it isn't being recognised, in a terminal give:   hcitool dev    without sudo in front. do you get any output?14:44

Surbschnuffle, what are hops BTW ?15:55
schnuffleSurb: as your pc doesn't have a direct cable to the target it is passed over from one network device to the next until it reaches the target and each device is a hop15:56

marawan2hello does any one know how xubuntu differs from lubuntu16:06
schnuffleshurtagul: the problem is with linux, flash and mostly nvidia graphics16:06
schnufflemarawan2: xubuntu=xfce DE, lubuntu= lxde DE16:07
fatNERDblazemore : under location , it shows /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so16:07
Pici!flavors | marawan216:07
ubottumarawan2: !Kubuntu and !Xubuntu are simply flavors of Ubuntu that come with KDE and Xfce (respectively) installed as default, instead of Unity. Other specialized flavors of Ubuntu include !Edubuntu, Ubuntu !Studio,  !Mythbuntu, and !Lubuntu16:07
fatNERDblazemore: and /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so16:07
shurtagulschnuffle, ok, ive already pretty much give up on flash16:07
aubrmgedyhow can i set a program to run as a different user?16:07
blazemoreaubrmgedy: sudo -u <username> <programname>16:08
marawan2schnuffle: yes but what they differ in other than look and invirnoment?16:08
blazemorefatNERD: Disable the Chrome PepperFlash one, leave the flashplugin-installer one16:08
blazemorefatNERD: Then restart Chrome16:08
schnufflemarawan2: both are based on ubuntu, share the same repos but have different default package installation that#s all16:09
=== Guest18862 is now known as whoever
rawriteblazemore: alright doing it right now16:09
blazemoremarawan2: It differs in that Xubuntu ships XFCE by default, whereas Lubuntu ships LXDE16:09
phixDaughain: ummm what was the error mesage?16:09
blazemoremarawan2: You can turn any ubuntu variant into any other16:09
marawan2blazemore: so i am running lubuntu now can i turn it into a xubuntu? please explain16:10
Picimarawan2: "yes but what they differ in other than look and invirnoment?" nothing.16:10
blazemoremarawan2: sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop16:10
marawan2blazemore: that is all!16:10
blazemoremarawan2: yes, "xubuntu-desktop" "ubuntu-desktop" and "kubuntu-desktop" all will work16:11
phixDaughain: just share it16:11
marawan2blazemore: nothing else!16:11
wheatthinnope, that's it bro16:11
marawan2blazemore: and the defauly lubuntu desktop is deleted16:11
Daughainphix, No error message. I reinstalled nautilus-share, rebooted, and thats it. Once again, I will repeat: There is NO share option in nautilus16:11
blazemoremarawan2: No, although you should reboot afterwards, and be aware there is quite a lot to download16:11
blazemoremarawan2: it won't remove any packages, no16:12
Daraelmarawan2, blazemore:  Of course, installing a *buntu-desktop package won't so much turn one Ubuntu derivative into another as *add* a new one.  To finish the "conversion" it's necessary to remove some packages.  ISTR there's a page on Psychocats to help with that.16:12
blazemoreYeah marawan2 if I were you, judging by how surprised you were that the xubuntu-desktop metapackage even existed, I would just leave it as having both16:12
marawan2blazemore: wouldn't be easier if i just download the iso, burn it and boot from that the new *buntu16:12
blazemoremarawan2: It's a lot more difficult to remove one than add another one16:12
fatNERDblazemore: thanks for your help. It did solve the problem.16:13
blazemoremarawan2: Yes, but it will be a new, different installation16:13
fatNERDsee ya later16:13
blazemoremarawan2: None of your programs or files will be there16:13
blazemorefatNERD: Did it work?16:13
phixDaughain: hmmmmm16:13
marawan2blazemore: u r right16:13
blazemoremarawan2: But it is better, yes16:13
blazemoremarawan2: My actual advice is, back up what files you want, and do a clean installation of Xubuntu16:13
marawan2blazemore: is there a link for how to change the lubuntu desk to xubuntu desk16:13
blazemoremarawan2: step 1: sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop16:14
Daraelblazemore, marawan2:  To remove the lubuntu packages after installing xubuntu-desktop (although personally I'd suggest installing the xubuntu-desktop *role*, which can be done by specifying it as "xubuntu-desktop^"), follow instructions at http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntucat/tag/pure-ubuntu/16:14
wheatthinstep 2: reboot16:14
wheatthinotherwise, you can just install xfce4, and it'll add a second desktop environment16:15
Daraelmarawan2: Or rather, http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntucat/tag/pure-lubuntu/16:15
marawan2 wheatthin: ya tell me more about that16:16
Daughainphix, The option isnt on either of my systems, and both have nautilus-share installed and up to date.16:16

marawan2blazemore: like run the xubuntu iso so i could install the os16:24
blazemoremarawan2: If it is an Ubuntu/Xubuntu/etc iso you need to burn it to a DVD or use a USB flash drive, then reboot your computer and boot from it16:24

marawan2blazemore: so it is not possible to run it from the desktop ( on windows you could)16:25
blazemoremarawan2: Ubuntu (and as far as I know, Lubuntu) comes with a program for putting an iso onto a USB flash drive, it's called Startup Disk Creator or similar16:25
blazemoremarawan2: On Windows you could use something called Wubi16:25
blazemoremarawan2: It is very buggy and not recommended by anybody in this channel16:26

marawan2blazemore: but i want to easly run the iso16:26
blazemoremarawan2: What you are asking doesn't make sense16:26
marawan2blazemore: is it totally not possible?16:26
blazemoremarawan2: You *need* to burn it to a bootable medium and boot from it16:26
marawan2blazemore: on windows you don't, Man !16:27
blazemoremarawan2: That is a part of the nature of it, it's not some decision16:27

johnny9fingerscant install easytether on ubuntu dpkg error processing ead18:23
=== rbxs is now known as rbxs|Zzzz
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: I would guess you then run "sudo make install", as that will typically install it to the system itself18:26
johnny9fingerserror processing easytether  (--install) cannot access archive no such file or directory18:26
saiarcot895johnny9fingers: Do you have a .deb file that you downloaded from somewhere?18:26
aubrmgedysaiarcot895, to the system itself? how is it any different from apt-get install?18:27
johnny9fingersfolder is on desktop...  also tried extracting to it's own location18:27
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: well, with apt, it's managed; with make install, you manage it18:27
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: Are you trying to install it to another user or run as another user?18:28
johnny9fingersi have the deb directly from developer18:28
BooeyOHdoes anyone know why when I try to uninstall a package via apt-get and reinstall, it does not ask me to configure it (the second time around) ?18:28
saiarcot895johnny9fingers: use "sudo dpkg -i <path_to_deb>"18:28
PiciBooeyOH: if you just want to reconfigure it you can do: sudo dpkg-reconfigure packagename18:28
saiarcot895johnny9fingers: you don't have to extract the deb18:29
johnny9fingerswith or without the brackets18:29
saiarcot895johnny9fingers: without18:29
saiarcot895johnny9fingers: that was just to show you what to replace18:29
BooeyOHPici: I do that, but it doesn't ask me the questions.  I tried to install roundcube (webmail) and my ssh session crapped out halfway through.  Then when I went in, deleted the lock files, uninstalled (with purge) and reinstalled, it did not pop up and ask me the database questions it did the first time18:29
aaron_i have a hybrid laptop gpu where i should go to install the drivers?18:30
aubrmgedysaiarcot895, trying both. install a .deb with dpkg and run as a different user (because of firewall rules)18:30
nilsecAny idea why the Ubuntu launcher keeps using a blue color even though it's set to change based on background color and none of my backgrounds contain blue?18:30
nilsecFor example, a black and yellow background -> blue colored launcher18:30
aaron_nvidia geforce with cuda18:30
nilsecI cannot set a custom color without losing transparency in the dash completely.18:30
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: the dpkg will install to the system; to run as a different user, I believe you have to first do "sudo su <user>" (without brackets) and then run the program from there18:31
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: I think that will cause the program to use that person's home folder instead18:31
aubrmgedysaiarcot895, thanks. it worked.18:32
aubrmgedysaiarcot895, too earely. it didn't.. the other user doesn't have a password18:33
aubrmgedy"Account disabled"18:33
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: technically, I think the user doesn't have bash permissions, or something18:34
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: let me check how to allow the user bash permissions18:34
aubrmgedysaiarcot895, OK, I set a pw but it says the user is not in the sudoers file..18:34
aaron_my laptop has hybrid gpu (nvidia cuda and intel hd 4000),how can i install the nvidia driver?18:34

Miles_hello i'm looking for some instructions on how to partition for dual booting osx and ubuntu on a mac g5 system18:37
Miles_i had a guess and it said "yaboot" had problems and the sytem wouldn't boot18:38
PeyamMiles_: Just install it and if you got problems with bootlist. just grub-repair18:38
PeyamMiles_: Have you tried googling?18:39
Miles_the only option for auto configuration is to replace osx18:39
Miles_of course.18:39
Miles_i can't find anything that quite fits18:39
aubrmgedysaiarcot895, what does the line "user ALL=NOPASSWD:ALL" mean?..18:39
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: Instead of editing the sudoers file, can you try "sudo su - user -c 'command'"?18:39
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: the line doesn't ask for the password when running commands as root18:41
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: from that user18:41
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: not the best advice I gave18:41
aubrmgedysaiarcot895, i can't change back to my main user now... xxx is not in the sudoers file.18:42
PeyamMiles_: sorry I can't come to anything else18:42
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: type in exit18:42
Miles_"NewWorld boot partition"18:42
Miles_i wonder what that does.18:42
Miles_maybe if i unplug the osx disk and use the automatic instll..18:43
aubrmgedysaiarcot895, sudo su -u user -c 'command' ?18:44
Miles_but then i assume it won't set the boot loader up correctly..18:44
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: yes, from your user; replace 'user' with the target user and 'command' with the command you're trying to run18:44
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: hmm, I missed something there18:45
saiarcot895aubrmgedy: remove the -u part18:45

johnny9fingerswill took a bit more work got it up and running thanks for your help18:51
superbootHi all. Is there a way to know if a package was installed with the system install, or if it was installed by apt-get install?18:51
llutzaubrmgedy: and btw this will fail most likely. "sudo dpkg -i file.deb"18:51
flxmmraubrmgedy: you can download your source-package, then extract it maybe into ~/bin/src. There you should find a file named configure  – execute that with the help option and look how you have to set the $PATH to where you want to install. then it should be a simple make, make install (if you have all deps)18:51
aubrmgedyflxmmr, i have the source, but it's too much work... thank you everyone18:52
llutz!checkinstall | flxmmr you better don't use "make install"18:52
ubottuflxmmr you better don't use "make install": checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!18:52

wilee-nileedarrell09thomas, Use gparted a right click has the set flags18:58
alainusflxmmr, wilee-nilee: I tried using the boot-repair app but it outputs an error, saying that it can't be used on 64bit machines and that I have to make another bootable cd with some "Linux-Secure-Remix-64bit" iso. I don't have an extra USB key so I don't have that option.18:59

wilee-nileealainus, Unplug the ipod and run the basic fix.19:05
alainuswilee-nilee, sdb is some apple ishuffle thing.19:05
alainuswilee-nilee, really? huh. What do you mean the basic fix? boot-repair ?19:06
wilee-nileealainus, yeah, sdb is a usb right?19:06
alainuswilee-nilee, yep19:06
alainuswilee-nilee, sda is the concern19:06
alainusok I unplugged it, and I'm running boot-repair again19:06
wilee-nileealainus, That is one of the errors, there is one in ubuntu but it basically looks good, this if ubuntu is okay a pretty easy fix, I would default to the boot repair, not persoanlly but as advice.19:07
alainuswilee-nilee, same thing. http://paste.ubuntu.com/5868972/ . It still gives me: 64bits detected. Please use this software in a 64bits session. (Please use Linux-Secure-Remix-64bit (www.sourceforge.net/p/linux-secure) which contains a 64bits-compatible version of this software.) This will enable this feature.19:09

alainus(I thought grub didn't care about bitness)19:12

ubottuTo just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin.

ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot20:14

PepperoniPizzamfr, ok, so then follow that guide I linked to get the other 2 configured20:30
traxsteroh?, let me try that20:31
PepperoniPizzamfr, do you use DHCP? If so just scroll down to the 3 steps under Dynamic IP Address Assignment (DHCP Client) it is very simple to configure dhcp20:31

PepperoniPizzamfr, https://help.ubuntu.com/13.04/serverguide/network-configuration.html20:32

jribSerelijah: apt-get22:44
F41lStill no luck with booting to the installer with EFI. Tried flash drive, tried USB cdrom. I think it's 32bit only, so I would need a 32bit EFI install disk. Any ideas?22:44
quuxmanholstein: that is not ideal, but does work22:44
holsteinquuxman: i *never* said "replace your laptop".. your laptop vendor never promised you linux suppport, correct?22:44
quuxmanholstein: the thing is, the built-in audio device and speakers _does_ work, just not with pulse, which is quite frustrating22:45
holsteinquuxman: i usually try live CD's with different alsa version and kernel versions, and make a note of both if something "automagically" works22:45
jribsykopomp: did you read "https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/Bumblebee/wiki/Troubleshooting" ?22:45
holsteinquuxman: remove pulse then.. try lubuntu live.. .lubuntu doesnt ship pulse22:47
sykopompI thought mbps had optimus graphics.22:48
quuxmanholstein: what does lubuntu use for audio then?22:48
holsteinquuxman: the same.. alsa.. just without pulse22:48
sykopompI guess I'll try setting it up all over again without bumblebee.22:51

jribSerelijah: you did not follow my instructions to use a apt-get.  What do you actually want to accomplish?  i.e. once you install SDL, what do you want to do next?22:56
sykopompxorg log says to check the kernel log, but I can't see anything relevant.22:56
jribsykopomp: what was the state before you tried to install nvidia?22:56
sykopompMy system was using nouveau, but nouveau couldn't resume after suspend (and there's the whole 3d accel thing), so I tried installing the nvidia drivers.22:57
sykopompand now I can't even get a working x server :)22:57
jribsykopomp: if you enabled a bunch of ppas to try to get bumblebee, they may be causing issues22:57
sykopompI only enabled the one ppa.22:57
sykopompnothing else22:57
sykopompand only the one recommended in that wiki page I linked22:58
jribsykopomp: s/bunch of//22:58
sykopompI also just removed all the packages from that ppa that were installed.22:58
jribsykopomp: but you've determined you don't need bumblebee?22:58
sykopompI haven't, but that grep in the page you linked came up with no lines22:58
jribsykopomp: what ubuntu version by the way?22:58

jribjust using the default drivers jockey suggests23:01
sykopompthe "additional drivers" thing for ubuntu wasn't showing the nvidia drivers for me at all.23:02
quuxmanholstein: I'm pretty sure all I have to do is properly set the default device in alsa, than pulse will work23:02
quuxmanholstein: or at least I could use alsa directly in various apps then23:02
sykopompit's kind of bizarre how poorly this is working. :\23:02
