gordonjcpvalroadie: there's no easy way to do that00:00
invisiblekhrm...why does ubuntu fail so hard at using my local dns server to resolve local nodes?00:00
gordonjcpvalroadie: the root account is deprecated00:00
valroadiegordonjcp, ah well, anyplace with steps to guide me? Or...00:00
invisiblekit should be acquiring dns servers from my dhcp server (also the dns server)00:00
gordonjcpvalroadie: if you *insist*...00:00
usr13valroadie: Sure it's possible.  sudo -i  gives you super-user mode.00:00
valroadie:D I do I do!00:00
invisiblek$ cat /etc/resolv.conf00:00
invisiblek# Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)00:00
FloodBot1invisiblek: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.00:00
invisiblekthats not a flood =P00:00
gordonjcpvalroadie: maybe you can pass something to gnome-terminal on startup to force it to run as root00:00
invisiblekany more maybe...00:00
invisiblekanyway, it shouldnt be using for dns =\00:01
gordonjcpvalroadie: why do you want to do that, anyway?00:01
invisibleknot sure why its getting that in there00:01
pozI am with valroadie, I want that as well00:01
Aprelvalroadie: I *think* you can configure sudo to not require a pass. Then maybe you can make a shortcut to always call 'sudo -i' at terminal startup00:01

valroadiegordonjcp, because I do not want to be bothered by the sudo pass prompt ;) Aprel Thank you! I will look in the config files for my term client.00:01
gordonjcpvalroadie: hm00:01
* w30 thinks running any GUI as root is dangerous even if it's pretty stable, it's not stable enough.00:02
gordonjcpvalroadie: you shouldn't do that00:02
histoinvisiblek: Are you using network-manager for your connection?00:02
gordonjcpvalroadie: you don't have enough experience to have it all root all the time00:02
usr13invisiblek: change it to a valid nameserver of your choice.  Use the network-manager if you like, or set the configuration on your gateway router so that it gives proper IP info.00:02
invisiblekhisto: yea, i think so, whatever is default on desktop00:02
valroadiegordonjcp, I know ;) But it is my linux eh? I WANT to :)00:02
invisiblekusr13: you dont edit resolv.conf, it doesnt survive a reboot00:02
invisiblekand it should be pulling dns from my dhcp server, everything else does00:02
pozyeah, i agree. why is so hard to see why valroadie would want that? its very clean, so he can muck about with out any hassle. why bother with a password?00:02
invisiblekall my other nodes properly query it00:02
usr13invisiblek: You are correct.00:02
gordonjcpvalroadie: maybe add sudo -i to your rcfile?00:02
histoinvisiblek: look at your settings in network-manager you should see your dhcp pulled hte appropriate dns from your router00:03
invisiblekhisto: yes, it appears to have00:03
valroadiegordonjcp, will try that ;)00:03
gordonjcpvalroadie: anyway, having a root login is obsolete00:03
w30even sudo <some GUI app> is more dangerous than gksu <some GUI app>00:03
gordonjcpvalroadie: you should only ever use sudo00:03
invisiblekbut when i do nslookups, its using
gordonjcpvalroadie: this has been the case for over 20 years00:03
histoinvisiblek: it's using a local cache to speed up queries00:03
invisiblekwell its local cache is failing and its not querying the nameserver lol00:04
pozwhat does sudo -i do?00:04
gordonjcppoz: starts a shell as root00:04
Aprelgordonjcp: You mean obsolete on ubuntu? Debian still uses a root account.00:04
usr13invisiblek: But I've given you the available options.  You more-than likely have network-manager configured imporperly or your router, one or the other.00:04
gordonjcpAprel: obsolete on *all* Unix-like OSes00:04
valroadiegordonjcp, I am a risk taker! heh and imaptient. Really a big reason is to see if I CAN do it! Noone wanted to help me to do it because it is ill advised and I appreciate it but, it is my comp and I want to do what I want! *Yells and cries* haha00:04
gordonjcpAprel: root was dead before the very first Linux was released00:04
pozis there a way such that I can open up a terminal and always be in sudo -i mode?00:05
histoinvisiblek: http://askubuntu.com/questions/2219/how-do-i-clear-the-dns-cache#223400:05
Aprelgordonjcp: Then why do so many still use it?00:05
w30valroadie, make sure you have a disk image available to dd  back  to sda or whatever, heh heh00:05
gordonjcppoz: that's what valroadie is trying to do00:05
gordonjcpAprel: stupidity00:05
histopoz: sudo gnome-terminal00:05
pozseems like i would have to type it for every terminal00:05
histopoz: why would you want to though?00:05
invisiblekhisto: it seems to work *sometimes* and not others00:05
invisibleknot sure a flush is going to fix it00:05
usr13invisiblek: You do not have to use network-manager if you don't want to, you can set to static and edit /etc/resolv.conf if you want.00:05
gordonjcppoz: doing that makes no sense00:05
histopoz: although gksu gnome-terminal would probably be more proper00:05

ubottupoz: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo00:06

gordonjcppoz: so you're typing in commands that you don't understand, and running them as root?00:08
pozis it really that bad? I do not have anything personal on this computer... just a fresh install... somthing I play with to learn what i am doing00:08
gordonjcppoz: paste your credit card number, expiry date, CVV number, and home address and telephone number and I'll explain why that's a bad idea00:09
valroadiepoz don't feel bad, every has done it or still does. It is a quick way besides typing it all. These tight asses don't know the meaning of OPEN SOURCE. Pssh, Im outta here.00:09
Prufrockraymond_, oh, yeah, I guess I found it. Here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5902356/00:09
pozI have no info like that on this computer00:10
gordonjcppoz: you understand why typing random stuff in and running it as root is dangerous, right?00:10
w30all these people running sudo for a gui app wonder why their .Xdefaults file becomes owned by root and their user name won't log in.00:11
pozI dont understand why... i have to go eat right now because my gf is bothering me too. but I will be back to discuss00:11
w30it won't happen with gksu00:11
Jetfireanyone familiar with installing nvidia drivers on ubuntu 12.04?00:12
Aprelpoz: The point is root/sudo is your line of defense against attackers. By disregarding the protections sudo brings you, you open yourself up to vulnerabilities.00:12
Prufrockraymond_, And there also seems to be a similar, marked incomplete, error report on launchpad about this same issue.00:12
usr13poz: The attitude you just witnessed from valroadie is unfortunate.  What happens is that an unexperienced user with that type of attitude starts doing lots of stuff as super user or root and wrecks his system and wonders why linux is so messed up.  Well, it is not Linux that is messed up, it is the way people try to miss-use it.00:12

JetfireAprel Nvidia Geforce GT 630M00:20
raymond_Prufrock, Are you using any proprietary video drivers, or any kernel modules you build & installed?00:20
Prufrockraymond_, I'm not sure about the video drivers, but I've never been able to write an actually useful piece of code in my life to be able to build or install a kernel module.. :\00:22
skulltipwhy is 12.04 stuck with an older kernel while 13+ has the newer stuff?00:22
histoskulltip: stability00:23
SilverSlimerhow do newer kernels affect stability.. seriously?00:23
SilverSlimeri could imagine having a different version of certain libraries to go with a piece of software but a kernel?00:24
AprelJetfire: https://www.google.com/search?q=Nvidia+Geforce+GT+630M+ubuntu+driver might have the solution for you. Unfortunately the ubuntu forums top link is down :(00:24
SilverSlimerdifferent version of libraries = crash, not a kernel.00:24
fellayaboyhow do i uninstall programs that ive installed via a terminal from tar file..such as ./program make install00:24
Prufrockraymond_, could installing and tinkering with Wine at little bit have anything to do with this?00:24
JetfireAprel: Yes they are down and i can't install damn driver.00:25
JetfireFor what i've learned bumblebee is universial driver for optimus nvidia graphics.00:25
akurilinIs there any way of preventing alt-ctrl-del in a virtual tty when a user isn't logged in?00:25
Aprelskulltip: even though 12.04 has "long term support", they only bring the latest packages with the latest distros.00:25
histo!releases | skulltip00:26
ubottuskulltip: Ubuntu releases a new version every 6 months. Each version is supported for 9 months to 5 years. More info at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases & http://wiki.ubuntu.com/TimeBasedReleases00:26
raymond_Prufrock, It shouldn't.. unless you changed some kernel parameters (modifed /etc/defaults/grub).. and you'd know it if you did.  ok.. so that eliminates that issue.  And if you don't have any other devices plugged into your laptop (like a USB video card or something).. then.. as long as you're prepared for having an unbootable system, you can try a mainline kernel out.00:26
AprelJetfire: you may find luck using nVidia proprietary driver, if they have one for linux, but I haven't had much luck with proprietary driver son ubutnu00:26
Prufrockraymond_, a mainline kernel? what's that?00:27
skulltipok ty00:27
ubottuThe kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds00:27
raymond_Prufrock, A vanilla kernel, you can even try out a newer version.  Just to see if it fixes the problem.  You should back up your important files first though.00:27

dutchiehey, i'm having some issues with command-not-found. See http://pastebin.com/H5vuuTkK. I've tried dpkg-reconfiguring and apt-get install --reinstalling both command-not-found and -data, but no luck. Should I just remove those and get it to regenerate them somehow? Going afk now, but will leave this logged on and check for highlights00:31
raymond_Prufrock, once you've backed up your important stuff.  Try kernel 3.9  http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.9-raring/  <- you'll see debs on here.  Get the linux-image-... deb for your architecture (if you don't know, just type arch, it'll probably be either i386 or x86_64).  If it's x86_64, grab the deb that ends in amd64.00:32
raymond_Prufrock, once you download it, if you double click it, it should pop up in the software center and let you install.  Hopefully those panics will stop ^_^00:34

arthurb_so pavucontrol can't connect to pulseaudio. Daemon is definitely running though. Any thoughts to troubleshoot?00:35

Caelthunderwinggot bit of a question. can you use DD to restore an image back to an HDD as in a raw write back to the HDD?01:29
Aprelnaryfa: wel sure! For curiosity's sake. Plus maybe the origial asker will check the logs.01:29
naryfaCaelthunderwing: you should, what's the image?01:29
geniiCaelthunderwing: Of course.01:30
Caelthunderwingnaryfa, this: http://theisozone.com/downloads/playstation/tools/ps2-hacked-hdd-psbbn032-uleoplesrgsmbb3-or-free-hdboot/ normally you use a windows PC and use a program called "Rawcopy"01:30
Caelthunderwingi have atm my old PS (this is ancient Linux though like kernel 2.2 old) and it still has the DD utility01:31
Caelthunderwingjust none of my PC's are old enough to still have an IDE interface01:31
hydesteranybody using a seagate hybrid SSD/HDD with ubuntu?  thumbs up or down?  thanks01:32
naryfaCaelthunderwing: okay, but does it create a file with an extension? What is the image?01:33
OerHeks!anybody | hydester01:33
ubottuhydester: 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.01:33
Caelthunderwingthe image is pre-made and the extension is imgc01:33
naryfaCaelthunderwing: I doubt it then, try picking it with DD, but I don't think it will know what to do with it01:34
Caelthunderwingis there any then Imaging utilties that'll do a blind Raw write?01:34
naryfait isn't raw per se, it is "raw" to that program which created it, without converting the file, it's hard to tell01:35
geniiCaelthunderwing: If the image was made without compression dd can do it. If compression was used then it won't work.01:35
naryfaAprel: sudo visudo, and then change all the lines that have ALL=(ALL) ALL to ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL01:36
Aprelnaryfa: ah, i see01:37
wilee-nileenaryfa, Advising no password is against channel policy01:37

naryfaanything else?01:38
Caelthunderwingthis is going to take awhile @_@ the PS2 only has32MB ram and only 22MB avilable to the OS after boot .01:38
wilee-nileeAprel, The live cd is read not write thats why it has no password your install is read and write, that is a bad idea.01:39
Apreleveryone, please be calm. This goes back to a question asked several hours ago (asked by someone who isn't logged in anymore), and no one knew how to answer it. At the time, everyone advised against it, but the asker still wanted an answer.01:39

causasuiDWSR: they are there until the ssh-agent is closed, ie on reboot01:48
naryfacausasui: what about lm_sensors01:48
causasuiI am worrying about it because SMART data says the HDD has overheated before and the PC shuts down with overheating and I want to rule everything I can out.01:48

raymondcausasui, if your laptop is overheating, and shutting down due to overheating; the hard drive is not the most likely cause.  If you want to watch hdd temp though, install hddtemp.01:52

Aprelevlapix: does user logstash own the dir logstash?02:08
histoDWSR: you need to mount the partitions inside of the image so first you have to determine the offset to them.02:08

evlapixAprel: Yes. drw-r--r--+  2 logstash      logstash          4096 Jul 23 01:57 logstash02:10
Aprelevlapix: you need to use chmod 755 on dir logstash because the user needs exec perms on a dir to get inside of it.02:11

evlapixAprel: Here's the test case I've been working with: http://pastebin.com/emxYwpfz02:19
histoDWSR: Then I would use testdisk to repair it02:20
histoDWSR: how did it get mangled?02:20
histoDWSR: Or if you have knowledge on how it was partitioned you could guess the offset reliably02:20
OerHeksAri-Yang, that would be i7 vs i502:20
DWSRhisto: It's a flash drive that has failed.02:20
CeralesIs there any way to get SSLv2 support without recompiling OpenSSL? I don't really want to compile OpenSSL on production systems, nor run my own packaging server.02:21
napscagugu: One of the computers i have is a system 76.  No problems with 13.04.  Only thing i don't like is their shipping policy.  it's always on you.02:21
Aprelevlapix: the only thing I can think of is that user logstash has shell disabled and that's causing it, but I don't know.02:21
histoDWSR: Why do you think the parittion table is hosed?02:22
DWSRhisto: Because the flash drive failed.02:22
DWSRhisto: And gddrescue had about a 1GB chunk of data that it didn't get recovered.02:22
histoDWSR: parted /path/to/imagefile02:22
evlapixAprel: That sounds promising. How can I check that?02:23
wilee-nileekieppie, Just for chuckles I assume you know the test if it works, not questioning your skills I just start at the simplest varibles. https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/ubuntu-help/power-hibernate.html02:23
DWSRhisto: Unrecognized disk label.02:23
histoDWSR: make sure you are specifying the path to your image file02:23
DWSRhisto: I'm not super worried, honestly. It's mostly just configuration data that can be recovered very easily/.02:23
DWSRhisto: I am02:24
histoDWSR: sudo parted /path/to/imagefile02:24
DWSRhisto: Yep.02:24
DWSRIt whined when I didn't do it as root, so I did it as root. Same result.02:24
histoDWSR: How was it partitioned one big partition?02:24
kieppiecheers wilee-nilee: I have run `sudo pm-hibernate` for test, but nothing happens, although the log seems OK. will pastebin02:25
DWSRhisto: No, it was using the guided partition installer.02:25
DWSR16GB flash stick.02:26
histoDWSR: what did you have installed there?02:26
DWSRhisto: Ubuntu.02:26
histoDWSR: well then / should be the first partition using mbr partitioning most likely02:26
DWSRhisto: It is, afaik02:26
histoDWSR: okay one sec02:27
DWSRI think I recovered only the partition.02:27
DWSRLet me try.02:27
histoDWSR: well if that's the case then just mount it02:27
Aprelevlapix: check the /etc/passwd file.02:27
DWSRmount -t ext4 /path/to/file.img /mountpoint?02:27
histoDWSR: although you will have filessytem errors with 1gb of it being non recoverable02:28
DWSRhisto: Yeah, I'm just looking for a few specific files. Don't care about most of the rest02:28
DWSRhisto: Nope, still won't mount02:29
DWSRhisto: Bad superblock, opt, or wrong fs type.02:29
DWSRhisto: dmesg complains about bada geometry.02:30
histoDWSR: Well what was your gddrescue command?02:32
histoDWSR: you could always carve the image for files02:32
DWSRhisto: Using testdisk?02:32
DWSRpretty sure it was ddrescure /dev/sdp1 /oldsys/backup.img /oldsys/backup.log02:33
histoDWSR: yea that would just be the partition. What type of files are you trying to recover?02:34
DWSRah, it was ddrescue -f -n /dev/sdp1 /oldsys/backup.img /oldsys/backup.log02:34
DWSRhisto: Config files mostly. An install of headphones, sickbeard, couchpotato, and plexmediaserver.02:34
DWSRPretty much don't care about anything else.02:34
histoDWSR: the issue is they are just text files without a header...02:35
DWSRThere's no way to identify them by the folder they were residing in?02:35
histoDWSR: So I would try and repair the filesystem and mount it. Or use something like the sleuthkit to copy your data out if it can read the filesystem.02:36
DWSRSeems like a lot of time and effort that I can just use to reinstall and reconfigure everything.02:36

newbi fixed that error though,03:05
newbbut... every now and then Ubuntu will crash for some other currently unknown reasons...  so log files seems the way to go03:06
histonewb: !cli was a bot trigger to have ubottu tell you info about the command line03:07

histonewb: your brightness issue could be caused by some bug with your particular hardware. You can try passing some kernel options at boot to see03:08
histonewb: acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=legacy   try adding those to your kernel line during boot03:09
newbah yes, this Unbuntu install is still pretty fresh, idk how the drivers worked out and uhh oh I fixed the brightness thing, googled it. and i added something to the grab default that looked a lot like what you said there, but different03:10

lauratikavideos and music paus right after selected in clementine and in youtube...03:41
lauratikai dont have audio03:41
holsteinMidnightNinja_: i use gparted from a live CD03:41
MidnightNinja_I can just extend the partition without wiping it?03:42
holsteinMidnightNinja_: you should *always* have backups.. since all hard drives fail03:42
MidnightNinja_Holstein: so the only way to do this is to format the drive and repartition it03:43
DragonDon_here here holstein !03:43
lauratikait was working fine, but after reboot isnt working any more03:44
holsteinMidnightNinja_: no.. you literally stretch the partition out with a live CD using gparted, as i said. if you want me to say, it wont break, i answer with, you should have backups anyway03:44
xmetalaudicous (sp?) is what i use for audio03:44
MidnightNinja_holstein: how do you recommend I make a backup?03:44
MidnightNinja_or do you mean just backup my files?03:45
holsteinMidnightNinja_: however you will constantly do that.. clonezilla clones.. cloud storage such as a website, or ubuntuone or dropbox.. or a big hard drive, via USB or network03:45
MidnightNinja_ah gotcha03:45
holsteinMidnightNinja_: i mean, you hit the power button, and that drive is dead.. whatever you would want, and however you woul back that up03:45
lauratikanow video is working but no audio coming, test in audio preference also wont bring any sound03:46
holsteinMidnightNinja_: plan for that, and if anything goes wrong while you are growing the partition out, and it can, though its likely not going to happen.. you will be fine, and prepared03:46

However, audio works as I can hear the setup loading to what I guess is the menu. I believe this is a problem with the graphics card since it is switchable graphics. If anyone is able to help me I'd appreciate it. Thanks.04:39

DragonDon_crap....unity just up and died again....sigh...05:15
rannongawow drivers?05:15
RaveYodaTyping  apt-get update now tells me "type '' is not known on line one"05:15
RaveYodanow it say deb is not known on line one05:15
DragonDon_<shrug> dunno....this is a new install....I reset it once already....this is getting tedious....thinking of ditching unity now...05:15
RaveYodaUse openbox05:16
RaveYodaOR gnome05:16
DragonDon_yeah....maybe go back to gnome (althought  gnome is one of the reasons why I ended up with Ubuntu from Debian...long story)05:17
RaveYodathough I prefer lighter desktop mngrs05:17
DragonDon_so, never having really 'switched' DMs....I'm installing openbox now...how would I set it as the default DMs?  I suspect just running 'openbox' from the terminal will start it...05:18
rannongait doesnt really matter, it should be an option when you logout and log back in05:19
DragonDon_sigh...was hoping I didn't have log out/in again....05:19
rannongawhats wrong with that?05:19
DragonDon_because this is a new setup, I've not configured the auto-logins for IRC....pita to type in /msg nickserv stuff again...05:20
webmobihow can we configure smil file05:20
RaveYodaHey, just a heads up...openbox is really light.... Right click to access menues. Also, you may want to get nitrogen so it'll manage your background05:20
DragonDon_RaveYoda, what is nitrogen?  I want to run conky to add some live info to my desktop.05:21
webmobifor streaming two with two bit rate05:21
rannonganitrogen is a wallpaper manager, openbox does't come by default with one05:21
rannongafeh is another one05:21
gaghi there05:22
DragonDon_I've got feh installed now....was suggested by one site ....ok, gonna reboot now...05:22
sin_taxcan anyone help me figure out what is up with this server? I can't get aptitude to upgrade my packages: http://pastebin.com/Fu0ugPFe05:22
RaveYodayeah, but nitrogen is cooler. With dual monitors it sets seperate wallpapers for each monitor05:22
sin_taxlines 10 and 11 of the paste make no sense05:23
gagarchive manager is not working in ubuntu 12.04 please anyone can help me..?05:23
gagi cant able to extract files in ubutnu05:24
rannongawhat files?05:24
aeon-ltdgag: details of what you're trying to extract and what happens when you try will be useful05:25
gagrannonga: TAR.GZ,ZIP05:25
rannongatry using unzip from terminal first it just might be the software05:25
DragonDon_ok....OB is confusing to use initially....how do I get to any of my programs?05:25
rannongaright click05:25
DragonDon_right-click does not give me access to installed stuff....only a few things.05:26
rannongaalso you might want to install a taskbar or dock like tint2 or docky05:26
gagrannonga: from terminal its working but right click option not working05:26
aeon-ltdDragonDon_: OB - openbox? you need to configure the menus with obmenu05:27
RaveYodaRazorqt-pannel is best for pannels05:27

aeon-ltdDragonDon_: you can choose to configure the xml files directly though :)05:29
RaveYodaIt's easyer than manually setting it up05:29
rannongagag, try reinstalling file-roller05:29
RaveYodaPlus, razorqt-pannel is not in repos initially05:29
DragonDon_are the xml files located in the home dir?05:29

dnivraHello. I'm running Kubuntu 12.04.2. I was resizing a partition and using the machine simultaneously. I thought the machine locked up and ended up removing the power to the machine. Now, the OS doesn't recognize the partition type. I suppose the only way to make it usable is to format it. Is there some way to recover the data on that partition?05:49
RaveYodaoh, dear, i pasted the wring list.05:50
krzwhen is linux ever going to be painless?05:50
OerHeksdnivra, what trick did you do, it is almost impossible to resise a partition in use.05:50
RaveYodalet me try again05:51
krzcalibratin sucks05:51
krzaudio sucks05:51
FloodBot1krz: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.05:51
dnivraOerHeks: Oh the partition was not in use. I had unmounted it and resized it using the partition manager.05:51
krzOS reports a few issues every so often05:51
krzhow frustrating05:51
aeon-ltdkrz: windows isn't painless either05:51
RaveYodaThere Dragon05:51
krzaeon-ltd: wasnt referring to windows though. im coming from osx05:52
krzeverything JUST works05:52
rannongahate that os05:52
RaveYodabrb Dragon05:52
DragonDon_RaveYoda, wrong list?  how did you do that?05:52
dnivraOerHeks: it was an additional NTFS partition I had on my machine. I wanted to increase the size of Ubuntu's root partition and so was resizing that partition to get free space.05:52
krzrannonga: you dont know shit then05:52
aeon-ltdkrz: not fair though, apple make the hw and the sw05:52
krzaeon-ltd: thats a valid point05:53

krzim an audiophile, and man does this sound cripple me05:53
krzwith tears05:53
aeon-ltdi'm guessing you're probably not on intel for audio05:53
DragonDon_krz, umm.....why are you here again?  sounds odd that you are complaining about such things on a help channel for such things :)05:53
WorstCaseOntariowhat kills me on the audio is no MediaMonkey on linux =(05:54
krzDragonDon_: wondering if there is a solution?05:54
krzspotify is basically useless on linux05:54
DragonDon_krz, probably best to find a spotify channel and find those linux users....that would be better methinks05:54
krzor ubuntu perse05:54
DragonDon_krz, you saw this of course right? https://www.spotify.com/us/blog/archives/2010/07/12/linux/05:55
krzyou know thats all the way back to 2010 right?05:56
OerHeksdnivra, try the live iso and backup your data , as the data is not in the /root partition it should be possible.05:56
krzits not just spotify though. yt videos. anything with audio05:56
DragonDon_yeah, I saw that....the feedback would still work methinks :)05:56
RaveYodaOK, back Dragon05:57
DragonDon_krz, "There is no officially supported Linux version, but Linux users are welcome to try the Spotify for Linux preview."05:57
DragonDon_can't blame bad audio for a company that simply hasn't fully developed an app for linux...05:58
krzdude, its not just spotify. audio in general is a annoying to the ears05:58
rannongaim no audiophile but i find it ok on realtek hd05:58
OerHekskrz so your complaint is the lack of an equaliser in spotify?05:58
krzOerHeks: its not spotify. everything with audio05:59
gordonjcpkrz: why is spotify "useless" in Linux?05:59
gordonjcpkrz: it works just great05:59
krzif the sound output sucks. whats worth your time listening to music05:59
RaveYodaAny luck Dragon?05:59
gordonjcpkrz: could you try being a bit less negative and describing the *actual* problem?06:00
OerHekskrz now stop the ranting, there must be a systemwide equaliser somewhere.06:00
DragonDon_krz, this, from my understanding, is an industry standard bit of audio software. http://jackaudio.org/  hardly 'poor quality' or the like06:00
gordonjcpDragonDon_: pretty much06:00
DragonDon_RaveYoda, I am suspecting that your system is using some sort of cached details.  have you rebooted yet?06:00
krzgordonjcp: as i said earlier. the audio is simply flat. no depth. unlike on windows or osx06:01
gordonjcpkrz: strange06:01
krzi dual boot to windows. and audio is good enough. same with my osx laptop06:01
gordonjcpkrz: I use Ubuntu and OSX on my Macbook.  They sound identical06:01
krzon ubuntu, its terrible06:01
RaveYodanot yet06:01
RaveYodashould I?06:01
krzgordonjcp: you using any special drivers?06:02
DragonDon_RaveYoda, see you in a minute or two then ;)06:02
gordonjcpkrz: no06:02
gordonjcpkrz: on the Macbook, just the plain ordinary Intel HDA drivers that come with both OSX and Ubuntu06:02
DragonDon_time for me to reboot as well...06:02
krzmaybe its my audio card06:03
gordonjcpkrz: on my desktop PC I'm only running Ubuntu so I've nothing else to compare it with, but it has an expensive high-end sound card for recording, a USB sound card for the two-track bus, and its internal Intel soundcard for just noises06:03
Whixhey hey anyone getting unknown symbol errors with iwlwifi 6050-506:03

RaveYodaI was using my file manager to get to tjhe file and was editiing it  through libreoffice06:07
gordonjcpkrz: some drivers for Windows have a bunch of additional processing to add EQ and compression to the sound06:08
gordonjcpkrz: the Ubuntu drivers give you the audio unmolested by any of that nonsense06:08
DragonDonwell that was annoying...the output was defaulted to off...heh06:08
krzgordonjcp: what do you recommend then?06:08
gordonjcpkrz: switch all that crap off in Windows06:09
krzgordonjcp: i mean, on the ubuntu side06:09
gordonjcpkrz: let your ears get used to hearing your tunes when they're not an overcompressed jangle with all the midrange scooped out06:09

RaveYodaSo i'm going to repost my earlyer question. I am "technically" using Mint as my OS. But recently I've done remodling my end and virtually removed all core Mint packages. I'm now using ubuntu repos and have installed Openbox and other lighter programs not dependent on major dependiencies. All was working great up till about a week ago. Now, whenever  install packages they don't get configured and freez on the config section of the inst07:23
RaveYodaall. When I try to remove the broken packages it hangs on removal too. I've tried dpkg --config -a but it doesn't work. I used synaptic to "fix broken pkgs" and that stalls too. What is the problem most likely?07:23
Tagggauronandace: lol, okay07:23
ponutsI think there is much to win by Ubunut or any Linux env. to do a simple all cover home installation.. not just one computer 1 server 4-5 client 5-6mobile dev. and connected togheter into a PRIVATE env.07:24

auronandaceRaveYoda: if you want ubuntu then install ubuntu07:26
auronandaceRaveYoda: just like we can't support someone attempting to make debian into ubuntu07:26
RaveYodaMmmm, i've removed nearly all core pkgs auronandace. It really isn't Mint as there are no mint pkgs. Also, may I remind you that Mint is based off of Ubvu07:27

Guest36876any idea?07:30
RaveYodaOK OK,07:30
otakRaveYoda: you might like arch linux, they have a really good wiki.  Or build up debian from minimum install.  Package install can fail because of lack of disk space07:30
showar21So installing fglrx has screwed me over royally.07:30
auronandaceshowar21: we can only support drivers installed from the ubuntu repos here07:31

There is approx 390 GiB of free space immediately succeeding the extended partition but when I select resize, allocate the entire 390 GiB for resize and hit OK, I get an error "Could not set geometry for partition ‘/dev/sda3’ while trying to resize/move it." Could someone tell me where I'm going wrong?08:49
syed_they should have been hashed08:49
bun24331syed_ they were08:49
bun24331but weakly, with only md5, rather than something like bcrypt08:49
TheBraynwere the passwords salted and did they use a proper hashing algorithm?08:49

ikoniaDJones: he's just said upstream has gone09:47
ActionParsnippierre1: blank the file off, may make the setting apply09:47

petooAny other ircd in your mind ? of course I need services too09:47
hewhomustwhat irc client are you using atm?09:48
petooclient? it's xchat though09:49
pierre1ActionParsnip, I backed up the file and deleted. But why would that make any difference?09:49
ActionParsniphewhomust: ircd = irc server, not client09:49
ActionParsnippierre1: its a possible step to take, worth a shot09:50
pierre1ActionParsnip, ok. Can I append my old file to my new one and see if it gets increased normally now?09:51
ActionParsnippierre1: makes sense :)09:51

vlad76hey guys, can someone point me to an "official" explanation why you can't use spaces in filenames on linux? =) (it's a long story...)10:13
Pumpkin-you (normally) can, it just gets annoying10:13
Pumpkin-as you have to refer the file either with quotes or by escaping the spaces with "\ "10:13
mikejwis there a command similar to 'du' to show the distribution of files across the filesystem.. i.e. having trouble with running out of inodes10:14
hewhomustdu -c10:15
hewhomustyou can use du in ubuntu?10:15
Pumpkin-I don't think that is what you want10:15
hewhomustyeah i just accidentally missed the terminal10:16
[Raiden]vlad76: find . -type f |while read x ; do echo "$x" ; done - this is work fine with spaces in filenames.10:19
hewhomustmike did that work, cause i seriously just missed typing in the terminal?10:19

sasuke Can anybody tell me how to install hdmi drivers on ubuntu12.0410:21
ikoniasasuke: there isn't any10:21
hewhomustyeah what I thought too10:22
hewhomustI'm assuming you can see stuff10:22
scott11111I have an issue with 12.04.2, one of mydisks won't mount. It's partitioned GPT, I've tried sudo mount -t ntfs.... but it says it's not a valid NTFS filesystem. On windows it shows up as a foreign drive NTFS formatted.10:22
sasukeikonia, my laptop is detecting the  device but not showing.10:22
hewhomustoh external display10:23
hewhomustthats totally different10:23
hewhomustscot, are you dual booting?10:23
sasukeikonia, when i connected the device with my laptop . This is the msg i got "HDMI1 connected 1920x1200+1366+0 (0xf7) normal (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 518mm x 324mm"10:24
scott11111Nope, it's a HTPC that was on Windows 8 but I'm sick of Windows just having a fit :/10:24
sasukebut the display is not showing10:24
hewhomustscot ,so you removed it?10:24
scott11111It's a storage drive ~ 2TB10:24
ikoniasasuke: ok ?10:24
scott11111Yea, new install of Ubuntu10:24
=== zi_ is now known as Guest93676
scott11111Windows won't mount this disk unless I first import it as it's showing as a foreign drive10:26
hewhomustscott, whats the format?10:26
hewhomustscott, so can you actually see it in ubuntu?10:26
scott11111I would like to convert to ext3 or 4 but 2TB of data I'd have to back up some how first :(10:26
scott11111If I list my disks but I can't get it to mount10:26
=== Guest93676 is now known as zipy
hewhomustis it relatively full?10:27
scott1111140GB free :(10:27
ActionParsnipscott11111: why do you not have a backup anyway?10:28
ActionParsnipscott11111: if the drive fails, where is your data?10:28
hewhomustscot, what command are you using to try to mount it?10:28
scott11111Honestly, I couldn't afford a second 2TB drive at the time, but it's on my shopping list for next month10:28
ActionParsnipscott11111: luckily next month is soon :)10:29
scott11111Yes ha! sudo mount /dev/sdb /media/hdd1 -t ntfs or something - sorry I'm on my other pc10:29
hewhomustscott, can you paste the results from running sudo lsblk10:31
scott11111I'll have to jump on the other pc and come in here 1 sec10:31
scott222222here it is: http://pastebin.com/8Pv5JEZ910:33
scott222222It's sdb @ 1.8T I need to mount and auto mount. I'm a bit concerned on NTFS writing in Ubuntu too, in the past I know it was risky.10:34
hewhomustscot, i'm mounting my windows partitions and it's fine10:34
scott11111What command would you recommend I try to mount to /media/hdd110:35
Jakey1what the way to convert .mp4 to .avi?10:36
hewhomustscott, read this website it's quite informative, http://www.pendrivelinux.com/mounting-a-windows-xp-ntfs-partition-in-linux/10:36
hewhomustjakey, you need to find a converting application10:38
scott222222I got an error10:38
hewhomustscott, what?10:38
scott222222see here: http://pastebin.com/9K83hZdm10:38
scott222222I've tried sdb3 too10:39
hewhomustscott, another good website https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount/USB go down to Mount the drive10:40
MonkeyDustJakey1  winff is nice10:40
Jakey1MonkeyDust: Thank you10:40
hewhomustscott, mount the sdb310:41
scott222222sam error using "sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb /media/hdd1" Always says NTFS signature missing10:41
hewhomustit says to install ntfs-3g driver, have you done that?10:41
scott11111I believe I already did let me check :)10:42
scott222222it's installed10:42
scott222222"ntfs-3g set to manually installed."10:42
hewhomusttype the command you used exactly10:43
scott11111To mount?10:43
hewhomustyes please10:43
bebojanyone using mediatomb ???10:43
scott11111sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb /media/hdd110:43
scott11111I've tried sdb1,2 and 310:43
scott11111Always "NTFS signature missing"10:43
hewhomusttry using ntfs-3g instead of just ntfs10:44
scott222222Same error :(10:44
scott11111The other drive is fine, but this one says "Partitioned: gpt" and the other "Partitioned: dos"10:45
scott11111I know it's a dynamic drive so some reason10:45
[Raiden]may be need to convert gpt to mbr10:46
scott11111Will I loose data?10:46
ActionParsnipscott11111: you may be able to use foremost to get files when you get the new drive, you will lose file names and folders location but you may get the data10:46
ActionParsnipscott11111: this is why backup is important10:46
scott11111It's fine in Windows I'm unsure why Ubuntu hates it.10:47
[Raiden]I know a Russian program that was able to do without a loss. Paragon hard disk manager. Shareware program10:47
ActionParsnipscott11111: run an chkdsk on it, so you know it is healthy10:47
scott11111I did that last night before I jumped to Ubuntu, seems fine.10:48
krzhow do i copy text in a terminal?10:48
scott11111Click and drag to highlight then right click -> copy10:48
hewhomustscott, you mentioned that you had 40GB remaining data it's a bit dodgy but one possible avenue is to create an ext4 partition with this copy files to it and then enlarge it10:48
hewhomustscott, doing this should not remove any date10:49
hewhomustscott, data10:49
scott11111So 40 - copy, delete - resize to 80. Rinse, repeat10:49
richard_i just spun up a vm. does it have libgmp on it? I did "sudo apt-get install libgmp    .......... "cannot find libgmp" how do i install and/or update libgmp?10:49
richard_13.04 vm10:49
hewhomustscott, yeah thats what i'm saying10:49
hewhomustscott, there's no reason why it shouldn't work10:50
hewhomustscott, might just take a while10:50
scott11111Can you resize an ext that way? I know in Windoh you can't unless it has the space at the end of the drive10:50
hewhomustscott, i have no idea it's just a weird idea i came up with10:51
scott11111Apparently dynamic disk NTFS isn't supported in Ubuntu it needs to be converted to a basic disk in Windows first? That sound right?10:53
krzscott11111: hmmm, thats what im doing. just realized tmux has a different behaviour10:54
MonkeyDustwindows != linux10:55
[Raiden]I'm not sure that it supports. It is better to check with someone else.10:55
scott11111Very true Monkey, I wish I had the space to do a new ext4 partition10:55

richard_ActionParsnip: how do you see what the lastes version of stuff you can download?11:00
DragonDon_anyone know if there is a nice tool for making maps based off of a google map? (I saw the instructables how-to....would like simpler)11:00
richard_ActionParsnip: what is even the difference between repo? binary, compiling from source, ppa etc?11:00
MonkeyDustrichard_  apt-cache search [part of package name]11:00
auronandacerichard_: best to stick to what is in the repos11:01
ActionParsniprichard_: repo is supported here and instaled as binary, ppa is a 3rd party source which may be a later version but not supported here11:01
MonkeyDustrichard_  a ppa is an unofficial and unscreened "external" source, hence potentially dangerous11:01
ActionParsniprichard_: you are free to compile source but we cannot support that here, you can get the source from the repos or from he projects website11:02
richard_ActionParsnip: so would libmgp-dev giv me everything???11:02
richard_ActionParsnip: inclufding libgmp10?11:02
rannongarandom, could you describe the problem a bit more?11:02
ActionParsniprichard_: it will be headers for the package if you are compiling etc, tells the build how to talk to the binaries11:02
richard_ActionParsnip: what do you mean repo is supported here... what is here?11:04
scott11111Gotta ruin thanks everyone11:04
auronandacerichard_: this support channel11:04
ActionParsniprichard_: the repos are maintained by MOTU, and so are official ubuntu packages11:04
richard_ActionParsnip: what is MOTU11:05

richard_ikonia: ^^11:13
ikoniarichard_: the difference is one is a snapshot of the code base, the other is bleeding edge from the git repo11:14
ikoniarichard_: although to be honest, if you're asking that I'd question if you should be trying to do this at this time11:14
auronandace!checkinstall | richard_11:15

Ahti333The problem seems to be, that version 7.22.0-3ubuntu4.2 is in the precise-updates repo. i have added that as deb-src to my repo list, but trying to force that repo with 'apt-source -t precise-updates curl' errors "Ignore unavailable version ... of package curl", while the path given in the sources list does contain the correct version of curl11:33

lotuspsychje!ppa | thowniii12:27
ubottuthowniii: A Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa and !ppa-purge12:27
richard_Pici: so when I download this PPA https://launchpad.net/~bitcoin/+archive/bitcoin because I want libdb4.8 is it just ready to use?12:27
Picirichard_: you'll need to run an apt-get update and then an apt-get install of that package.  Also, keep in mind that PPAs are created by the community and are explicitly not supported if something goes wrong.12:29
richard_Pici: yes sure... why do I need to update... and should I install first? is the ppa just putting the stuff in my local "repo" but they're still not available to my machine until I "apt-get install libdb4.8++-dev"?12:30

sudormrflotuspsychje, Yeah, sure.. I am working with iredmail -- I have multiple virtual domains and I need to have mail accounts set up for each of them (all on the same server).12:37
sudormrflotuspsychje, I can't seem to get more than one domain working with iredmail. :-/12:37

svectorHello guys what partition size shall I make to install Ubuntu alongside windows?12:37
sudormrflotuspsychje, Yep.12:37
sudormrflotuspsychje, 12.04 LTS12:37
svectorI don't want it be inside windows...12:38
lotuspsychjesudormrf: maybe the #ubuntu-server guys have more experience with iredmail, first timle ive heared of this package myself12:38

svectorthowniii: I have a D partition that is 90 GB? Can I access that partition if I install ubuntu on it?12:39
svectorI suppose the partition will be formatted with ext412:40
lotuspsychjesvector: even better would be clean install ubuntu single and loose windows once and for good :p12:40
thowniiisvector: yes you can, when you install it along side with windows, it creates an alternative boot menu called GRUB, you can then choose to boot from windows or ubuntu12:40
sudormrflotuspsychje, will have a look -- I have one domain name working with no problem (i.e. me@domain1.com) but I cannot get me@domain2.com working -- I have virtual domains set up in apache for both.12:41
MonkeyDustthowniii  the windows partition then is not touched12:41
makotohi all. my ubuntu install is feeling very very unresponsive when i'm trying to use my ipod or use rhytmbox to play music from a samba share. rhythmbox keeps turning into zombies and gtkpod is suffering lockups and hangs. how can i increase verbosity and see why on earth its running so badly?12:41
thowniiisvector: make sure you leave some room for windows, i'd say 50/50 for win and ubuntu12:42
lotuspsychjesudormrf: you working on the webbased page of iredmail? the url i posted show howto add multiple domains12:42
svectorthowniii: that's what I did in the past.... But I  want to install the ubuntu on it's own partition( not inside windows). So is it a good idea to shrink my D and clean install on the new partition?12:42
svectorlotuspsychje, that'll be my next step :)12:43
lotuspsychjesvector: there are so many alternative pro packages to replace windows :p12:43
thowniiisvector:  well i wouldn't shrink unless i plan to use it for other data storage purposes12:43
sudormrflotuspsychje, yeah... I have been able to setup me@domain2.com there... however I am not receiving any emails sent to info@domain2.com and I am not able to set it up on thunderbird or apple mail or the like.12:43
sudormrflotuspsychje, Oddly enough, I can send mail -- but not receive. :-/12:44
lotuspsychjesudormrf: you sure your configuration is setup properly?12:45
svectorthowniii, I'm not sure how much space I will use when I'm inside Ubuntu. I plan to use it for development.  And yes I want some space accessible from windows for data storage....12:45
svectorthowniii, so shrink and clean install?12:45
thowniiisvector yes12:45
sudormrflotuspsychje, I am sure of nothing. :-D12:45
lotuspsychjesudormrf: sounds like an incomming mail server fault?12:46
lotuspsychjesudormrf: can you see any errors starting iredmail from terminal?12:46
svectorthownii, will clean install on my D drive make the drive inaccessible from wiindows?12:46
thowniiisvector: not completely but yes you won't be able to put files on it from windows unless you shrink it12:47
sudormrflotuspsychje, well, iredmail is a server hosted application, so I can't really open it in the terminal.12:47

svectorthowniii, okay thanks for the answers12:47

usr13Vanamonde: The first thing to do is to [correctly] identify which partition(s) need to be deleted.  The second thing to do is figure out which one(s) you want to expand.  One problem you will run into is if the Lubuntu partition(s) are not at the end of the drive, some confiration changes will need to be made in at least one (or more) of the installed OS's as well as the boot-loader (grub's) configuration.  (It is not a simple process.)14:04

usr13Vanamonde: B4 I go, I might also tell you that using Ubuntu's LiveCD will probably be your best tool in the process.  And, if those partitions are not at the end of the drive, and you just shrink them down to almost 0 and resize the others as you see fit, you will basically reclaim the space without making any other changes, other than re-configuring grub to not show the option to boot Lubuntu, (that is, if you even care that it shows an extra option).14:09
Shiggs|i5-2500khttp://www.droidevs.com/showthread.php?t=1107 <== That's for the HTC Sensation 4G, but that's essentially the same as the Evo 3D14:09

ton_yhelp appreciated: http://askubuntu.com/questions/323122/how-do-i-install-packages-from-landscape14:12
ton_ythat's for the server version of landscape14:12
usr13Vanamonde: One other thing.  If the Lubuntu partition(s) are at the end of the drive, that is a very good thing.  But, If they are not, the partition manager will take a long time moving data in some cases, so beware, don't think it is broken and not doing anything, it will take a long time and you will need to be patient.  AND, back up your data, it is not altogether safe process.14:12

arashmy device is an acer d257 netbook14:26
ActionParsniparash: drivers for what?14:26
arashI guess video drivers14:27
INeedHelpholstein: i did. I have a Acer Aspire E1-522-5659 and everything works very well, except the touchpad which doesn't. It shows up, and when I try and move around it fails to sync, and is incredibly slow. Also can't left or right-click, let alone tap on anything to select it.14:27
holsteinarash: is the issue relating to the graphics card?14:27
arashyes most probably14:27
INeedHelpholstein: just let me know what you need for me to look up or do and I will14:27
holsteinarash: confirm that by using the graphics card, and reporting *exactly* the issue14:27

arashlet me check14:28
ActionParsniparash: then how can you apply video drivers when you don't know the GPU?14:28
ActionParsniparash: seems silly don't you think14:28
arashthe OS must detect and install the driver , shouldnt It ?14:28
holsteinarash: usually folks would say "when i boot the machine and i get a black screen" or "the graphics are tearing" ..etc14:29
ActionParsniparash: not necessarily, the proprietary drivers are not in a default install for example14:29
arashthe system is running very slow14:29
ActionParsniparash: press CTRL+ALT+T and run:  sudo lshw -C display     type your password (you will get no feedback) and hit ENTER14:29
ActionParsniparash: what video chip do you have?14:29
holsteinarash: i dont use unity or gnome3 or anything requiring 3d on my netbooks.. could be that the hardware is just not up to the overhead of main ubuntu14:30
arashPCI sysfs is the driver14:30
holsteinarash: you can try xubuntu or lubuntu live14:30

ubottukrz here's why: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit.

pabl0syes, I know, but only I thinked that down run gnome and over xfce15:43
pabl0sI choosed xfce at log on15:43
u1210sounds good. But after I delete a partition and try to make an ext one, it only allows me to make a primary one15:43
pabl0s'cause I have same problem with gma3600 driver15:44
pabl0sso, I installed the amd64 version with GPL gma500 driver from legend programmer alan cox15:44
u1210<ActionParsnip> it only allows a primary part. The ext option is gryed ou15:45
pabl0sso , the video is more fast that gma3600 x32 driver from intel, but in complex the system is little slow, expecially the video decoding , for examples flash hd video15:46
joseph_mitreLucidDreamZzZ, How about this idea, a bit crazy I know, I "install" my iso to one of my empty hard disk partitions, say /dev/sda5, having a size of 8GB, using Unetbootin. I then select that partition at boot time and then it will start a live session (I hope so). Then I can install Ubuntu to any other partition that is empty. How about that? Seems plausible?15:46

sam113101how do I reset it17:35
=== ffio is now known as Guest63709
geniisam113101: firefox -safe-mode      from terminal will load it without any extensions/addons and if it behaves there, you know to start going through them to see which is the prob17:36
oozboozPici: interfaces has dns-search, dns-servers, so I though it should offer something like dns-options17:36
histooozbooz: yes you can add dns-nameserver whatever17:36
TJ-sam113101: With Firefox not running already, at a terminal, "firefox -safe-mode"  ... you can also try using a new, fresh profile. Again, with no firefox running already, "firefox -ProfileManager" and create a new clean profile. That will help you discover if the font issue is specific to your default firefox profile or something more widespread17:36
histoPici: you can add nameservers to interfaces it's the prefered way when using resolvconf17:36
Picihisto: oozbooz was asking about adding "options rotate timeout:1 attempts:1"17:37

sam113101I wonder why17:38

newtothishisto:  i see,  yeah i was expecting that, had to ask though, it's like with a lot of computer related stuff i'm finding18:21
trismjoshu_: notify-osd is just the daemon that displays the notifications, the notifications are sent by various apps (so if you are using network-manager you will probably get those ones)18:21
rogieralso can i enable the task bar? I'm used to gnome 3 classic.18:21
gordonjcpnewtothis: tmux and irssi is great because you can run it on a server like I'm doing, and detach and reattach at will18:21
CheckDavidgordonjcp, I have latin keyboard, but I do wish for it to be in English.18:21
mnme_hi guys, i have a question: i added a partition (ntfs-3g for win compatibility) to fstab and the automount works, but i can't use the trash, i need to delete files permamently. what could be the problem?18:21
CheckDavidgordonjcp, it = os language18:21
LucidDreamZzZok this is exactly what i needed the software-center has those check boxes awesome thanks histo!!18:22
histoWorstCaseOntario: it did nothing other than check the status of the samba daemon. Perhaps you weren't using sudo with smbtree before18:22
gordonjcpnewtothis: if you could see what I'm doing, you'd see I've left the house and I'm now connected to IRC from the PC in my van18:22
newtothisgordonjcp:  ... :(  i do not know what those things "mean" lol but i'll get there lol18:22
gordonjcpnewtothis: notice how you didn't see me disconnect and reconnect?18:22
newtothisah okay18:22
newtothison your own server okay18:22
joshu_trism hi just tested in a VM on my ubuntu mini install and it seems to work.18:23
gordonjcpnewtothis: so, I have a server somewhere in a hosting farm in London18:23
gordonjcpnewtothis: I'm in the house now, ssh'ed into it over ADSL18:23
gordonjcpnewtothis: at the same time the PC in my van is ssh'ed into it over 3G18:23
sam113101I don't like doing this18:23
ichatgordonjcp, - your using irrsi as a bouncer?18:23
newtothisi need to learn more... about... stuff..18:23
sam113101I prefer to use a bouncer18:23
gordonjcpichat: a what?18:24
sam113101tmux + weechat over ssh was kind of slow when I tried it18:24
WorstCaseOntariowell I did not use sudo but it still asked for my password when I typed in smbtree, and I could not browse shared folders and now it works. weird18:24
m6121Greetings, all.18:24
ichatsam113101,  - ty, now i understand what hes doing18:24
mnme_nobody knows why i can't use trash on my automounted mtfs-3g partition?18:24
histosam113101: works fine here18:25
ichatgordonjcp,  instead of runing an irc client on my server im running a cashing irc proxy instead18:25
gordonjcpichat: oh okay18:25
newtothistwo more burning questions guys: 1) can you enable 'ctrl+c' and 'ctr+v' in Terminal???  2)any way to disable not being prompted for the password all the time, but still not being root?18:25
gordonjcpichat: I use tmux for running mutt and a bunch of other stuff18:25
histonewtothis: try ctrl+shift+v18:25
m6121I am looking to buy an external drive.  The last time I bought a component, a Dell printer that states "Linux" it took me 3 months to get a driver.   Does anyone know if a "Western Digital Elements 2TB External Hard Drive" will work with Linux, or is there "One" that you should get?18:25
ichatgordonjcp, - i see18:25
newtothishisto:   sweet jesus!!!!18:26
gordonjcpnewtothis: copy and paste are ctrl-shift-c and ctrl-shift-v18:26
gordonjcpnewtothis: ctrl-c uses something else18:26
gordonjcpnewtothis: also, just select stuff and middle-click to paste18:26
wilee-nileenewtothis, If it needs super user=admin you will have to use the password, it does not take long to get used to it.18:26
newtothisright right, i noticed. that ctrl c was like.. for.. to something else yea18:26
histonewtothis: yeah ctrl+c is to stop processing a command18:27
gordonjcpnewtothis: ctrl-c is generally used as break18:27
newtothiswilee-nilee:  oh ok yeah i've made my password short for the speed, but so everyone just deals with that?18:27
m6121ctrl-c  =  'break18:27
m6121that is good to know, thanks18:27
newtothishisto:  gordonjcp   of course!!!  haha  i used that to stop my infinite loops18:27
wilee-nileenewtothis, If you have been running windows in admin you have gotten used to a faulty system is all. I started on open source so it seemed natural.18:27
gordonjcpnewtothis: no no no you must have a 200-character password with a mix of upper case, lower case, numeric, punctuation, international phonetic alphabet and sanskrit symbols!18:28
newtothiswilee-nilee:  yeaahhh  i'm dual booting windows 7 and ubuntu,  in windows i disabled the security prompt thing18:28
m6121So does anyone have warm fuzzies about a Western Digital Elements 2TB External Hard Drive and Ubuntu, or, anyone have an "Oh, god, no" experience with that as an external drive?18:28
gordonjcpnewtothis: and never write it down!18:28
gordonjcpnewtothis: on the other hand, maybe no-one cares enough about you to break into your computer18:28
m6121(like for the sanskrit reference)18:28
gordonjcpnewtothis: and a simple non-dictionary word password will suffice18:29
wilee-nileenewtothis, Really not a good idea, windows should be run in a standard and with the uac running.18:29
newtothisgordonjcp:  XD   lol   but how much danger are you in if your ubuntu password is like... oh idk...  one character long?  i mean  if  a hacker had that what... they could break me?18:29
gordonjcpnewtothis: actually no18:29
gordonjcpno, chances are they wouldn't18:29
wilee-nileeanf fully backed up and imaged18:29
mryanbrownwhats a decent size for /boot ?18:29
newtothiswilee-nilee:  i see,  what you say rings true then, ubuntu is growing on me and yeah shame i've gotten used to a bad system18:29
mryanbrownis 500mb overkill with a 100mb /boot/efi18:29
TheBraynmydogsnameisrudy: 200MB or so18:29
gordonjcpnewtothis: for the simple reason that no-one would think you'd have such a fundamentally stupid password18:29
LucidDreamZzZmryanbrown, 100mb18:30
saiarcot895mryanbrown: 100mb as well18:30
TheBraynI always like to have a bit of extra space to keep it from running out of space when it's filled up with old kernel images18:30
mryanbrown100mb /boot and 100mb /efi18:30
mryanbrownor 200mb /boot and 100mb /efi18:30
gordonjcpnewtothis: have you ever realised you didn't have your keys, spent ten minutes trying to work out how to get in, then actually found the door was open anyway?18:30
foobar2000I have Ubuntu Server running in VirtualBox (the host is a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.7.5). In the Ubuntu Server VM, I can access www.google.com just fine but not code.google.com. Any idea what I can do to troubleshoot? I'd rather resolve the actual problem instead of just adding an entry to /etc/hosts18:30
LucidDreamZzZunless you have a plan for dozens of images right18:30
newtothisgordonjcp:  really?  what if they bruteforced it, wouldn't the running time be wayyyyy shorter for them?18:30
wilee-nileenewtothis, It happens MS does not exactly inform its consumers, I like MS I hve W8, W7 and XP, but I run them like I would linux in general.18:30
mryanbrowni might have about 10 kernels yeah18:30
gordonjcpnewtothis: aha, yes18:31
mryanbrown+ gummiboot and prob grub2 alternating18:31
gordonjcpnewtothis: but no-one would bother brute-forcing short passwords18:31
m6121"1-2-3-4-5?   Sounds like the combinations some idiot would have on his luggage..."18:31
joshu_is it normal to not have an interfaces directory at /etc/network/interfaces ?18:31
wilee-nileemryanbrown, Generally a boot partition is not needed.18:31
mryanbrownwhy do you say that18:31
gordonjcpnewtothis: I'm actually tempted to set up a honeypot on a VM and see how long it takes to get broken with a single-character password :-D18:31
mryanbrownhow else am i going to boot18:31
saiarcot895wilee-nilee: (U)EFI requires one18:31
LucidDreamZzZmake it read only18:31
newtothislol  i'm afraid now...18:31
wilee-nileemryanbrown, It is common knowledge all you need is the mbr in a msdos setup.18:32
mryanbrownlol mbr18:32
mryanbrownthis is 2013 man18:32

mryanbrownno visible bootloader, just straight loaded the kernel18:34
wilee-nileemryanbrown, And by the way showing an smart as attitude here will not go far.18:34
LucidDreamZzZthebananafish, im on fvwm218:34
xangua[1]tom 12.04 is the current LTS18:34
LucidDreamZzZTheBrayn, ^^18:34
=== zz_DenBeiren is now known as DenBeiren
DJones[1]tom: You may be better sticking with 12.04 thats supported for 5 years18:34
histomryanbrown: you should see it on a ssd bout 3-4 seconds18:34
Slart[1]tom: if you don't want to mess with updates all the time go with the latest LTS.. long term support version18:34
mryanbrowntom, isnt 13.04 lts'ed longer than 12.04 lts18:34
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; with the exception of 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), which will be supported for 5 years on the desktop. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Precise (Precise Pangolin 12.04)18:35

mryanbrowni havent looked @ the lts chart in a bit18:35

[1]tomlooks like 12.04 it is then18:37
geniimryanbrown: All LTS starting with 12.04 are unified support length with server, so 5 years18:37

deepocean1358usr13, question, I wonder whether I can merge SDB1, SDB2 and SDB3 without losing data. SDB1 and 2 used to contain windows 7\18:43
RaveYodaarunpyasi, just install the program. Then start it up18:43

newtothisgenii i see...  thanks18:44
arunpyasiRaveYoda: will it work fine??18:44
usr13deepocean1358: No.  You can not "merge" partitions.  YOu can only resize them or delete them or create them.18:44
RaveYodaarunpyasi, ??? yup. It's easy to use and is handy when you want multiple isoes on one usb as well18:44
deepocean1358usr13, I remember in Windows' Partion Magic program you could do this18:44
deepocean1358there is no such program in Linux?18:45
RaveYodaarunpyasi, i've a video yuy showing it's features as well. it reall good18:45

arunpyasiRaveYoda: will it work for making Mac OS X snow leopard?18:45
wilee-nileedeepocean1358, Not merging no18:45
usr13deepocean1358: No.  You can not "merge" partitions.  You can only resize them or delete them or create them.18:46
RaveYodaarunpyasi, ido you mean putting it on usb and testing/installing to systems? If so, yes18:46
RaveYodaarunpyasi, unless it's a kackintosh disk in which case I'm not too sure.18:46
arunpyasiyes man18:46

wilee-nileenewtothis, smuxi looks like a standard IRC app to me.18:47
xgeek-cubI installed lightdm but now i get blacksecreen and flashing mouse point any ideas?18:47
RaveYodaarunpyasi, but if you want to "burn" an OS X img to usb this'll do the trick18:47
deepocean1358usr13, wilee-nilee supposed I delete SDB1,2, can I then add these to SDB3? Or is that merging as well?18:48
RaveYodaarunpyasi, mind, the usb disk will be re-partitioned so all data on it will be lost18:48
wilee-nileedeepocean1358,  Is sdb1 the boot partition?18:48
arunpyasiRaveYoda: oh yeah I have the iso img ,I need to clone to the usb18:48
deepocean1358usr13, wilee-nilee I mean resize SDB318:48
usr13deepocean1358:  I know that what you see about Partition Magic is a claim that you can "merge" partitions, but what it *really* does is make one of them bigger, the other smaller and copies data from one to the other, and then deletes the smaller and again, enlarges the other.18:48
RaveYodaarunpyasi, how big is your usb disk?18:48
deepocean1358usr13, wilee-nilee SDB1 and 2 are boot and windows 718:49
deepocean1358usr13, that works for me. :)18:49

wilee-nileedeepocean1358, So you want it all in one partition is this correct?18:50
CheckDavidI hope I can connect to the internet once I launch ubuntu18:50
deepocean1358wilee-nilee, Yes18:50
arunpyasiRaveYoda: 8 gb18:50
=== iNeal is now known as _neal
deepocean1358according to this article it cannot be done18:51
RaveYodaarunpyasi, that should do.18:51
deepocean1358deleted partition must come after the partition that is to be enlarged18:51
deepocean1358wilee-nilee, usr13 ^18:51
wilee-nileedeepocean1358, If this is a standard setup not a uefi you would have to use a recovery or install disc and boot to the terminal and load the bcd to that one partition easily done that partition should be the active one with a boot flag, then otherwise move all your data other than the boot to that partition.18:52
m_tadeusometimes some process just starts accessing the disk like mad and freezes my system...how can I make ubuntu automatically kill that process?18:52
deepocean1358usr13, wilee-nilee only solution that comes into mind is: boot in live USB ubuntu. Merge SDA, copy all SDB into SDA, Merge SDB into 1 block and copy everything back again into SDB and reinstall on SDA18:52
wilee-nileedeepocean1358, Heh, you have to have the correct boot info in your final partition, part of it is not at this time.18:54
CheckDavidIs it possible to install ubunto on the average consumer-market tablet?18:54
usr13deepocean1358: sda11 is 85G and is at the end of the drive. Right?  Why not just delete sda3,4,5,6,7,8,9 & 10 and leave sda11 as is.18:54
wilee-nileedeepocean1358, It would be helpful to see the bootscript run to se whats actually all there.18:54
RaveYodaarunpyasi, if that doesn't work for some reason, then unetbootin is pretty good too. But it's hard to put multiple isoes on a usb that way.18:54
deepocean1358wilee-nilee, I posted this earlier: http://pastebin.com/EPTdaEkH18:55
RaveYodacheckdavid, what kinda tablet?18:55
deepocean1358usr13, I have no emptied all on SDA18:56

CheckDavidRaveYoda, not sure. Let's imagine a Samsung galaxy18:56
deepocean1358usr13 have now* emptied18:56
newtothisso like "sudo apt-get remove smuxi" would remove it, but not completely right?  and "sudo apt-get --purge remove smuxi" would completely get rid of it right?18:56
RaveYodacheckdavid, i'm quite sure you can18:56
newtothishow do you get rid of all things unnecessary....  like... a purge all?18:57
CheckDavidAnd would it be the desktop version, or the tablet version?18:57
histonewtothis: sudo apt-get purge somepackage  will remove the configuration files etc... remove retains them so when you reinstallt he configs stay18:57
RaveYodacheckdavid, ithough you'll ned to remove unity and use something lighter18:57

deepocean1358usr13, 640-90=500?18:59
CheckDavidRaveYoda, maybe good for people that know how to develop etc. I am just a noob =(18:59
RaveYodacheckdavid, or use Ubuntu Builder and use ubuntuminiremix and build that way18:59

And then tomorrow morning, hopefully once laptop is ready, I will repartion SDB into 1 partition and tomorrow night again I will move everything back to SDB and clean SDA19:01

RaveYodacheckdavid, Ahhhh, ok19:02
CheckDavidRaveYoda, no, very busy, I am on a transition hyou know? From windows to Ubuntu ;)19:02
ikoniakapilsharma: it sounds like it's either a failure in the disk, or there is file system corruption, most probably a failure in the disk19:02
RaveYodacheckdavid, Ahhhh, welcome to linux mate. It's a hard but rewording road19:03
nurupoany idea what i'm doing wrong?19:03
gerihi where can i set my proxy...is there some global config file?19:03
shahanbetween using wndows and ubuntu, on windows i was using malware bytes pro for anti-virus... should i have ... something like that for ubuntu?19:03
kapilsharmaikonia: but if disk fails, windows should also not load. right? I even try to run from USB and getting same error.19:03
ikoniakapilsharma: the disk is "failing" in the same way ubuntu has loaded and is working19:03
CheckDavidRaveYoda, since you use Xchat and you don't know if Ubuntu comes with a default IRC client, I suppose xchat is not the default client Ubuntu comes with, if any.19:03

LucidDreamZzZPuppy needs RDC/VNC19:11
deepocean1358usr13, in the new install would you recommend I create 1 or 2 partions?19:11
LucidDreamZzZand raid19:11
RaveYodacheckdavid, ok, but puppy is waayy diffrent from ubu. =p the cli lines anyway. They have an ubu based version now but not back 2yrs ago19:11
deepocean1358usr13, or create: SDA1: /boot, SDA2, SWAP (8GB?), SDA3: / and SDA4: /Data19:11
CheckDavidRaveYoda, another point, one of the things that is pushign me to linux. Is that I need it to do an online course, that will require some linux console functions.19:12
usr13deepocean1358: 2 at least.  Ideally 3 (in my opinion).19:12
CheckDavidI am not yet totally sure about what I am doing. But yeah, I will do it since I don't have a VPS service or anything of the sort.19:12
RaveYodacheckdavid, hey, why dont you use wubi insted and keep windows?19:12
imarkRaveYoda: theres been an ubuntu based puppy for years now,19:12

th0rCheckDavid, why not run a distro in virtualbox?19:13
RaveYodacheckdavid, wait, you're using Wubi atm?19:13
usr13deepocean1358: 1) 8G swap 2) 40G /  (type=ext4)   3) 5XXG /home/ (type=ext4) (the rest of the drive, to the end).19:13
CheckDavidth0r, because using ubuntu directly seems better to me. MAybe I am wrong?19:13
CheckDavidRaveYoda, yes I am. It installed already.19:14
deepocean1358usr13, you do not separate /boot  ?19:14
gordonjcpRaveYoda: wubi is dead19:14
th0rCheckDavid, I don't know, but it seems changing to linux just for a bit of course work is overkill19:14
RaveYodacheckdavid, or are you going for dool boot today? or full install?19:14
CheckDavidI did Dual boot I think.19:14
usr13deepocean1358: The first, an 8G swap partition, the second 40 or 50G for system files, and the rest for /home/ (personal files).  You can have a fat32 one too if you like, maybe at the and as you had before.19:14
RaveYodagordonjcp, i was inaware of that19:14
gordonjcpRaveYoda: it's crap19:14
CheckDavidThor, why is it overkill? In the past I changed to Linux (puppy linux) for no specific extra functionality. I was maybe looking for some sort of simplicity.19:15
RaveYodagordonjcp, in your humble opinion19:15
usr13deepocean1358: You can have a separate /boot/ partition but not necessary.  (I don't ever do it, don't see much need for it.)19:15
gordonjcpRaveYoda: it's slow, it doesn't really work, and the vast majority of people who come in here with weird intractable problems are using it19:15
gordonjcpRaveYoda: I have sound technical reasons for calling it crap19:15
RaveYodacheckdavid, use Linux Mint for simplicity19:15
gordonjcpRaveYoda: if you've got the rest of the evening free, I can explain them in all their painful detail19:15
CheckDavidOh, but yeah, I guess I am going for Ubuntu now, for Distro Choosing Simplicity.19:16
gordonjcpCheckDavid: it's a good choice19:16
th0rCheckDavid, I use linux exclusively, so don't misunderstand. But if I just wanted it for some coursework and already had my world set up in windows I would definitely consider just throwing something into virtualbox until the course was over19:16
RaveYodagordonjcp, Fiinnee, it is crap. But it's better than Windows19:16

RaveYodacheckdavid,then use Ubu in dool boot bro. It'll save you one day19:18

CheckDavidRaveYoda, I think that's what wubi does right?19:18

RaveYodashahan, it enables ufw19:21
deepocean1358CheckDavid, I understand MS Office 2010 runs smoothly on PLAYONLINUX though19:21

RaveYodashahan, iptables are already predefined and ufw allows you to fine tine 'em19:23
Ruintif you add backports to your sources.list, do you need to make an apt/preferences file pinning it lower than your main repos, or do the main repos automatically take precedent ?19:23
