jKlausHey all.. anyone else running ubuntu 13.04 with a Lenovo T430?00:00
javier_still at the same point. In synaptic I see I have installed wicd-daemon, python-wc and wicd-gtk, so that explains why I can execute wicd. But, if I remove those packets, I loose every posibility of connection. Someone know which are the network manager dependencies that may have been replaced? I could then install them before removind wicd's00:00
jKlausI have a NVS 5400M .. I just tried the 3xx series driver and it seemed to ruin my desktop interface00:00
MoPacjKlaus: What specifically does the problem look like? I've had a lot of trouble with such drivers and some mixed success with solving them00:01
MoPac(though on different makes of computer)00:01
daftykinsjavier_: well you definitely want to ditch wicd-gtk and wicd-daemon00:02
jKlausMoPac. well I have actually had 2 issues occur.  The first install I had used the default driver while doing dual monitors.. It worked alright for dual monitors but when I disconnected the dual the resolution was all messed up.. the desktop its was ok but any application I opened was all messed up00:02
ZiberSo, how I can get a full install of vncviewer instead of this really minimal program?00:02
daftykinsjuls: can you pastebin "sudo fdisk -l" ?00:02
jKlausMoPac, the more recent issue has just been failing to load the desktop after upgrading to the 3xx series driver00:03
jKlausloads the background but no UI00:03
MoPacjKlaus: So do you login, and then it just brins you back to the login screen?00:03
MoPacjKlaus: ah, okay, I see00:03
jKlausNope.. just logs me in to the wallpaper lol00:03

FloodBot1juls: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.00:04
jKlausI can ctrl + alt + t to bring up terminal but even the terminal doesn't act 'right'00:04
MoPacSo what may have heppend is that OpenGL, Unity, etc and the plugins they work with got disabled in Compiz during your upgrade00:04
reactor16jrib, what if i delete folders that have big space like /usr/lib /etc it take long too ?00:04
MoPacjKlaus: Do you have ccsm?00:04
jKlausMopac.. I'm kind of thinking I should just do a clean install of 12.0400:04
MoPacjKlaus: If you don't, then in your terminal, type sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager00:05
jKlausI really don't want something I have to tinker with to get working all the time.. I left Arch for Ubuntu to get away from that00:05
MoPacjKlaus: Try this before you reinstall -- once you have that program, open it using the terminal (command "ccsm")00:05
daftykinsjuls: you have to use a site like paste.ubuntu.com or pastebin.com00:05
jKlausBut do you foresee this as being a constant problem?00:06
MoPacAnd see if either as you , or as sudo ("sudo ccsm") you can reactivate the OpenGL, Unity, and dependent plugins00:06
MoPacjKlaus: In the cases where this has fixed it for me, it's fixed it for good00:06
MoPacjKlaus: But I haven't always been able to fix it this way00:06
jKlausYeah but are there other issues with 13.04?00:06
julsok and in poster what i put there00:06
MoPacjKlaus: I don't think this is an issue with 13.04 as opposed to earlier versions.  It's more of a general problem with updatin nvidia drivers on some machines that I've had00:07
julsi dont know use paste.ubuntu.com00:07
FoxyRK9what linux program can I download that will help me convert .m3u to .wmp format00:07
jKlausHmm, well I never used to have any issues with ubuntu.. 9.04-11.10 were great00:08
boogFoxyRK9, m3u is just a playlist file (just text inside)00:08
jKlausshoot I think i've been using ubuntu since 6 something maybe?00:08
=== phunyguy_ is now known as phunyguy
FoxyRK9yes but my Mp3 layer is not picking them up00:08
FoxyRK9Sony walkaman S Sries00:08
boogedit them to point at the location that the mp3/wmp live on the player00:09
FoxyRK9so just cut and paste them fro their locations to the playlist folder?00:09
MoPacjKlaus: One other thing that sometimes works like a stupid miracle is just deleting the .Xauthority file from your home directory and restarting00:09
jKlausThanks though MoPac.. I'll give that a try.  If it doesn't do it I still have 12.04 on disk upstairs00:10
MoPacjKlaus: I have a computer where I got too frustrated yesterday with basically the problem you're describing00:10
boogyou should be able to open them with a text editor like gedit, and see the file location (file tree). I'm not familiar with that player, but I have used m3u files00:10
MoPacI reinstalled with 13.04 because there were other cleanups I wanted to do, and I've just stuck with the Xorg opensource drivers00:11
jKlausMoPac, did you resolve the issue?00:11
MoPacjKlaus: In the past, I've always been able to resolve it one way or another with enough work, but yesterday I sort of had an "F*** you, not this again" moment, realized I wanted to redo my partitions anyway, and so reinstalled00:11

jKlausMoPac.. see to me if you're having this kind of an issue that often.. something wasn't ready for release00:13
MoPacjKlaus: Yeah, but it's something that also wasn't ready in 12.X versions00:13
julsqhen i run fdisck -l the result is http://paste.ubuntu.com/5953222/00:14
cuddylierAnyone know a way to find active ports on a specific IP? E.g. sudo netstat -lpn |grep :2556500:14
jKlausMaybe I'm still just thinking in the mindset of a conversation i had with a friend a while ago.. we both feel like there has been a decline in the quality of opensource software over the past couple/few years00:14
jKlausMoPac yeah but if you can't make it at least as stable as the prior 'version', even if it is a complete re-write, then just keep it in testing until it is as stable00:15
wilee-nileeMoPac, Please read the channel topic on language this is a family channel.00:15
TheLordOfTimeis there a way to disable update manager's autoupdating feature and notifying of an "old database" of update information on 12.04?00:15
TheLordOfTimebecause I run apt-get update / apt-get upgrade myself in terminal when I want to update00:15
jKlausAt work I couldn't completely re-write someone's system, add all kinds of new functionality, but make the existing functionality less stable00:16
jKlausmy ass would be bouncing off the curb.. lol00:16
MoPacwilee-nilee: I inserted those asterisks myself...00:16
wilee-nileeTheLordOfTime, I'm not sure ubuntu updates anything with you clicking.00:17
jKlausAlright, MoPac.. I'm going to try your fix.. fingers crossed00:17
TheLordOfTimewilee-nilee:  i just want to disable it's notification system00:17
MoPacTheLordOfTime: In the "software and updates" program, under "updates"00:17
TheLordOfTimewilee-nilee:  and to stop it from popping up "Update Manager" when there's updates00:17
julsplease help my ipod cant mount automaticly00:17
wilee-nileeTheLordOfTime, Would be in software sources.00:17
julswhen i run lsusb that its http://paste.ubuntu.com/5953226/00:18
boogjuls, did you look in settings > removeable drives and media00:18
julsmedia is empty00:18
MoPacTheLordOfTime: In the "updates" tab of "software and updates" GUI program, you can set the auto-check to "never".  You can also set it to keep checking but only to notify you as little as every two weeks00:18
TheLordOfTimeMoPac:  wilee-nilee:  found it, i set "Automatic Updates" to "never"00:19
boogno, hit the menu button then settings, open settings manager, and make sure that auto mount of removeable drives is set00:19
TheLordOfTimeand i'll update myself :)00:19
TheLordOfTimethanks to you both!00:19

lucidiumI'm trying to get X11 to start with the "radeon" driver, but it appears to fail and fall back to VESA in Xorg.0.log with the error "Screen 0 deleted because of no matching config section". I don't even have an xorg.conf file. Do I need to make one?00:20
daftykinsboog: it looks like it's just Thunar lacking Nautilus' GVFS usage which auto mounts apple device fs'00:21
boogahhh, ok. I just had it in my head that it would be a windows formatted ipod00:21
TheLordOfTimewilee-nilee:  i had to sneak around and use Synaptic to get to Software Sources because reasons, but it worked... i think00:23

nakphello, is there any way to prevent pulse to restore default volumes after each stream stops? or any option to set them by default?02:13
nakpI tried alsactl store but I cant use restore each time music stops for a while and my ears will bleed if it keeps setting headphones to 10002:14

jribVivekananda: I would advise you not follow it.02:48
Vivekanandajrib: crazy good or crazy bad02:48
jribVivekananda: bad02:48
Vivekanandaokay then I have the same problem02:48
Vivekanandawhat should I do02:48
jribVivekananda: what problem?02:48
VivekanandaI have a funny situation02:49
jribVivekananda: hurry, it's almost my bed time ;)02:50
Vivekanandaa couple of problems actually but each in turn . first my situation . I have a vdi (vbox) of ubuntu 12.04 in win 7. Now I changed both the deafault username and pass but now for some reason the username is still ubuntu but the pass is the new one ( as the guy says in the tuto)02:50
jribVivekananda: why don't you just make a new account?02:50
VivekanandaI tried to log into cups and it took the usernmae " ubuntu" and pass as the new one02:51
VivekanandaI just went into the gui02:51
jribVivekananda: define "the gui"02:51
Vivekanandaand changed the defualt username and pass for the vid02:51
Vivekanandain the user accounts gui02:51
jribVivekananda: I don't understand what you want to do.02:51
Vivekanandaokay again . in the user accounts gui the default username and pass were , ubuntu and reverse, I changed both in there02:52
jribVivekananda: why don't you just make a new account?02:52
Vivekanandabut when I open a terminal I see a ubuntu@....02:52
Vivekanandanot the new name basant@02:52
jribVivekananda: stop.  Why does making a new account not accomplish what you are trying to do?02:52
Vivekanandajrib: lol you are not answering my question but giving me another question :)02:53
jribVivekananda: I have yet to see a question02:53
Vivekanandacoz I dont want my computer to be named ubuntu02:53
jribVivekananda: so you want to change the hostname of your computer?02:53
Vivekanandamy question. How do I chage the hostname yes02:53
Vivekanandato basant and not the default ubuntu02:53
jrib!hostname | Vivekananda02:53
ubottuVivekananda: Use hostname <somehostname> to set the hostname, or to do it permanently: edit /etc/hosts to include BOTH the old and new hostname and then change /etc/hostname to the new one. WARNING! Make sure that your current hostname and /etc/hosts match, otherwise sudo may not work properly.02:53
Vivekanandaalso how is it that the password changed but the hostname remained the same02:53
jribVivekananda: the password is one thing and the hostname is another, different, thing02:54
VivekanandaI changed the hostname to basant and its password to xyz.02:54
jribVivekananda: hostnames don't have passwords; you aren't making sense.02:54
Vivekanandanow the funny thing is that although I seethe hostname ( in user accounts) as "basant" yet the one on terminal is stillubuntu but it now accepts the new password02:55
jribVivekananda: I doubt you see the hostname in user accounts.  If you want to change your computer's hostname, follow the steps ubottu outlined02:55
Vivekanandajrib my use case is this02:55
HexagoniteAnyone know an alternative to Unetbootin? Startup Disk Creator doesn't quite work.02:57
VivekanandaI looked online and found the default username password . I then opened "User Accounts" and there I saw that the Administrator username is "ubuntu" and the password is " reverse" . I clicked on "ubunt" and it allowed me to retype a new one so I typed basant02:57
Vivekanandaand then I changed the pass02:57
Vivekanandawith me ?02:57
jribVivekananda: no.  You asked how to change hostname and I told you how.  If you need to know something else, just ask your question (in one line).02:57
Vivekanandanow I expect that everywhere the name "ubuntu" was used ( as admin) I should see basant but I dont02:58
jribVivekananda: did you change your hostname yet (following the steps ubottu gave you)...?02:58

Vivekanandahey everyone03:11
VivekanandaI tried changing hostname in /hosts and /hostname but still I see ubuntu@ubuntu-VirtualBox  in the terminal03:11
holsteindlaflamme: the hardware support will likely not be as good as what is intended to run on the device.. if you buy a system76 machine, the batter life will be the same in linux, for example03:12
holsteindlaflamme: i searched "ubuntu chromebook" back when they first came out and found info03:13

holsteini would leave it in place as well03:47
Vivekanandawhat are these then http://virtualboxes.org/images/ubuntu/ ?03:47
holsteinbut, i would get the official ubuntu version, and make my own.. an install takes about 8 minutes03:47
holsteinVivekananda: from virtualbox03:48
dr_willisthose are not official by ubuntu03:48
Vivekanandayes so is it different from the oracle one ?03:48

holsteinVivekananda: if you are saying "i installed ubuntu and im having issues with it", all im saying is, thats not officially ubuntu03:48
VivekanandaI mean how difficult can it be ?03:48
holsteinVivekananda: you can do what you want, but i have no idea whats up with that VM03:49
holsteinVivekananda: we done maintain it03:49
dr_willisits possible that vm did somthing weird, or has some other weird settings that are breaking the normal way to change a users name03:49
holsteinVivekananda: you *should* be able to add a user.. if you cant, or are having issues, i dont know how to troubleshoot it, since i dont know anything about where it comes from03:49
dr_willisi have to wonder whats so differnt about that vm that you perfer it to the default ubuntu03:49
Vivekanandaholstein: okay I got that part . I am just saying that shouldn't changing /etc/hosts and /hostname resolve this isse :)03:50
dr_willisVivekananda:  changeing hosts and hostname do NOT change tthe users name.. it changes the machines name03:50
holsteinVivekananda: all i can say is, if that not doing it, we have no way of knowing what has been done to the system03:50
dr_willisso theres some confusion going on here.03:50
ubottuUse hostname <somehostname> to set the hostname, or to do it permanently: edit /etc/hosts to include BOTH the old and new hostname and then change /etc/hostname to the new one. WARNING! Make sure that your current hostname and /etc/hosts match, otherwise sudo may not work properly.03:50
Vivekanandadr_willis: nothing . I just found a ready working copy so used it. coz if I install the default then the steps are  1. install  2. get updates 3. install the after-install help things ( which I will have to look up ) and then start03:51
Vivekanandaso takes a long time03:51
Vivekanandabut if you say so I will get right down to installing it default03:51
dr_willisi would be suprised if that vm had all the updates03:51
Vivekanandasorry I mean I will go ahead and download03:51
Vivekanandadr_willis: if you think that self install is better then I will go ahead. btw isnt that vm from oracle ? or am I confused with the name virtualbox ?03:52
VivekanandaI will begin by downloading ubuntu lts and starting a fresh install03:53
Vivekanandaholstein: did you mean to say that the http://virtualboxes.org/images/ubuntu/ site is not from oracle ?03:54
dr_willisVivekananda:  i doubt if its officially by oracle.03:55
dr_willistheres various vm appliance sites out with images.  they could have any sort of weirdness in them03:55
dr_willisif it WAS offically by oracle - i definatly wouldent trust it.. I dont trust that company. ;)03:55
Vivekanandadr_willis: okay so fresh start for me then. tell me sth I have a 64 bit system. Should I install a 32 bit os on the vbox in it ?03:56
Vivekanandafor lesser pains03:56
Vivekanandaor lesser printer config issues ?03:56
dr_willisfor vbox i tend to use 32bit.  not much reason to go 32bit03:56
Vivekanandaespecially printer config03:56
dr_willisive never had printer issues in 64bit ;)03:56
Vivekanandadr_willis: so what do you suggest03:56
Vivekananda32 or 6403:56
VivekanandaI also did not get your line ----for vbox i tend to use 32bit.  not much reason to go 32bit03:57
dr_willisfor vbox i tend to use 32bit.  not much reason to go 64 bit    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<03:57
Vivekanandayes got it03:57
dr_willisi basically only use 64bit on my real machines.03:57
Vivekanandaokay so will go 32 then03:57
dr_willisi cant even recall the last issue i had that was due to 64bit-ness03:57
Vivekanandamy system has 64 bit windows03:57
Vivekanandawin 703:57
Vivekanandabut then you are a doctor :)03:58
dr_willisive had more issues with windows 64bitness then i have in linux.03:58
VivekanandaI might be a measely patient03:58
dr_willisand even then - i cant recall many issues in windows 64bit.03:58
Vivekanandaokay then final word03:58
Vivekanandawhat do I download ? what iso ?03:58
snizzohow can I install opensource radeon driver from source?03:58
dr_willisfor in virtual box - i tend to run Lubuntu its lighter03:58
Vivekanandayes I can do that03:59
dr_willissnizzo:  why do you need to?03:59
Vivekanandabut Lubuntu is not lts03:59
Vivekanandaand I want an lts for this vbox03:59
dr_williswhy do you want an lts?03:59
Vivekanandaie no help for next 5 yrs03:59
Vivekanandacoz I wont be here to supervise problems in this03:59
dr_willisi doubt if you are going to be using that same install for 5 yers.. and you can upgrade to the next release03:59
Vivekanandait is to be given to my uncle who is not comp literate03:59
snizzodr_willis: I'd like to try one cutting edge feature that isn't on packets now :)04:00
dr_willislts does not guarentee no problems. ;)04:00
Vivekanandadr_willis: I am not trying to debate correctness but lts simply gives me more time so I choose that always04:00
dr_willislts is about security updates more then anhyything else.  so lubuntu or ubuntu, wont matter much04:00
Vivekananda5 yrs is good !04:00
dr_willis5 yearts is ancient history ;)04:00
snizzoI already compiled mesa just I don't know how to install... i did make install but I think I have now 2 versions of radeon04:00
Vivekanandaokay but lubuntu will loose support in 1 yr04:00
Vivekanandait is fine04:00
VivekanandaI can use ubuntu04:00
dr_willisVivekananda:  not really.. its the SECURITY updates that aere the critical part of LTS.04:01
Vivekanandadr_willis: the reason for installing this ubuntu is I want to run a server on it04:01
Vivekanandaand also to print stuff from it04:01
dr_willisa server - it wont really matter what desktop  you use.. and you can install lubuntu and ubuntu both if you want. Or no desktop at all04:01
VivekanandaI did not want to go headless so I chose ubuntu04:01
Vivekanandayes so I will go with ubuntu and later perhaps get l04:02

imskyyeah firefox is pretty slow on new ubuntu04:35
imskyno way to get around it04:35
unsecur3dit works fine for me04:35
unsecur3dno slow at all04:35
unsecur3dbut if u need something faster (ur specs are slow) try chrome instead04:35
holsteinif the computer is old/slow, new software and new web browsers likely wont run all that great on it04:36
holsteinelpelado: what are the specs of the machine?04:36
unsecur3dthats why i asked the model04:36
elpeladowow! is just what I needed, the simple truth04:37
unsecur3dshould of said ur on an old pc dude04:37
holsteinelpelado: there is an ubuntu based puppy linux (not supported here, of course) that can run well on older hardare, with some compromises04:38
elpeladomaybe my laptop it`s getting old04:38
holsteinelpelado: state the specs, and i can share an opinion as to if i think ubuntu or a derivitive will run on it04:39
elpeladodual core intel and nvidia w 512 mb04:39
unsecur3dyea ur slow dude04:39
unsecur3dim at 4gb ram quad core04:39
unsecur3du might want to use xfce with ubuntu and chrome as ur web browser04:39
holsteinelpelado: i would try and add memory, and that should be fine... might want xubuntu or lubuntu04:39
unsecur3dthat would make it run faster04:39
elpeladook ok04:40
elpeladothe ubuntu distr. for xfce is xubuntu... ?04:40

jpmhunsecur3d: not sure - checking now - It did not give an error - now need to see if it is actually giving addresses04:56
unsecur3dno error = ur good04:56
unsecur3djust double check that the service is no running04:56
unsecur3dps -ax|grep dhcpcd if im not mystaken04:56
jpmhunsecur3d: better than that sudo service isc-dhcp-server restart gives a new pid and says it restart and the service is there.04:57
unsecur3du should be good, test it04:57

JonMcdarthpbal did you do any updates?08:30
blazemoredarthpbal: Are any other devices on the same network having the same problem? Is your device having the same problem with other networks?08:30
darthpbalI don't think so, but it's possible that I just did them without even thinking about it.08:30

saschagehlichhey, i'm trying to install ubuntu on an asus n550 notebook, but after i select "install ubuntu", the screen turns black and stays this way (led backlight is still on though). any hints?08:31
blazemorefidel: Doesn't Unity's Dash do that out of the box?08:31
darthpbalI don't have the password for any other networks, but all of the computers on my network are working fine except for the one.08:31
fidelblazemore: it might - but i am not using unity08:31
JonMcdarthpbal: if they other ones work i would try to roll back your last set of updates, back to when it worked08:32
dr_willisdash dosent search for pattersn IN files last i looked.08:32
blazemoresaschagehlich: Does the system have a make and model? Asus didn't make a computer called n550 I don't think, but Intel did make an Atom n550 so you might be getting confused with that08:32
saschagehlichblazemore: it's an asus n550jv-CN088H08:32
darthpbalHow would I roll back to previous updates?08:33

JonMcdarthpbal: unless you set it up in 13.04, there are no back ups. you will probably have to reinstall unless someone else here has a better idea08:38

dr_willisserver could be down. it should time out eventually08:41
blazemorefranci: This is an Ubuntu support channel08:41
darthpbalI looked up my issue and some people were saying something about a new kernel was messing up peoples wifi stability08:41
franciblazemore: i know, but i want to set it on ubuntu ;)08:41
blazemoredarthpbal: If you boot into a previous kernel do the problems go away?08:41

darthpbalI'm booting with a previous kernel now, give me a sec...08:45
blazemorefranci: Oh! You mean reverse DNS08:45
franciblazemore: yes, absolutely08:45
blazemorefranci: You have to contact your ISP, it might not be possible08:46
blazemorefranci: Only the owner of the IP addresses can change the records for them08:46
franciblazemore: i've contacted it and they send me question what subdomain i'd like to have on ptr08:46

franciblazemore: really ;)08:47
blazemorefranci: Who is your ISP in this case?08:47
blazemoreYeah it's interesting because their response doesn't really make sense08:47
darthpbalHey guys, it's looking like that was the issue. I booted in a previous kernel and it looks like my connection and speed are stable now!08:47
blazemorefranci: Is it a home connection, a server you rent, a colo or what?08:47
franciblazemore: it's some kind of colo08:48
rhumbothi all, i was wondering if there is a solution for multitouch gestures for ubuntu 13.04? (i cant configure them - worked perfectly on 12.04))08:48
blazemorefranci: "some kind of colo" and you don't know?08:48
rhumbotalso: is it possible to downgrade to get back to 12.04?08:48
franciblazemore: it's server for learning08:48
dr_willisrhumbot:  from 13.04 to 12.04?08:48
blazemorefranci: You rent rack space and network connectivity in a datacentre? Did you have to physically buy a server yourself (off ebay for example)08:48
rhumbotdr_willis yes08:49
dr_willisrhumbot:  reformat renstall.08:49
rhumboti see. thats what i would like to avoid.08:49
blazemorefranci: Really this isn't an Ubuntu issue at all - you need to contact your ISP to get your preferred domain set up as the PTR record for your IP08:49
franciblazemore: but can you please help me :/08:50
blazemoreNo, and it's not that I'm choosing not to, it's that I can't08:51
blazemoreYou need to contact your ISP, this is as relevant to ask the #ubuntu channel as it is to go to your mechanic and ask him08:52

nomikeI'm running a a Debian server running a number of Ubuntu VM's. As it is for a non-profit project and as there is no full-time sysadmin dedicated to the project, we've turned on automatic security updates on the VM's and the server to keep the internet facing services up to date and minimize the risk of being hacked.09:23
nomike(this is a well  balanced decision between the risk of being hacked due to security holes in out of date software and the risk of unattended updates)09:24
nomikeMy problem now is, that every now and then a new kernel update is installed which of course leaves the already installed kernels untouched. After a while the "/boot" filesystem fills up messing up the whole update-process.09:25
nomikeFirst step would of course be to include "/boot" in our monitoring so we get aware of the problems early.09:26
dr_willisnomike:  askubuntu.com has some scripts and discussion on cleaning out old kernels09:26
histonomike: http://askubuntu.com/questions/88936/how-to-remove-old-kernel-versions-automatically09:26
nomikeoh...thx...I'd have a loomk09:26
histonomike: follow those directions to have unattended-upgrades do it09:26
dr_willisbeen quicker to just say what you needed.. ;) instead of the back history..    ;^)09:27
dr_willisdo you really need a swperate /boot/ for each vm instancce also..09:27
dr_willisid think a /  /home and swap would be enough. Not sure what you gain by having a /boot/ partition09:28
geoffw8_hi all, if I do rm -rf *09:28
geoffw8_thats saying, delete everything in this folder and within it09:28
nomikeWell, as far as I understand the top-most answer suggest turning on a feature to automatically remove unused dependencies. Doesn't that remove the currently running kernel too?09:28
kaeltergeoffw8: yes, but you have to be extremely careful with such commands.09:29
MinkovskyHello, I'm having a weird problem with avconv/Nautilus. avconv-encoded MP3 files are 320kbps, but reported as 32kbps; duration is messed up too. http://imgur.com/Wab2jVi09:29
dr_willisgeoffw8_:  the thing to rember is the SHELL  expands the 'wildcard/regular expression'  then passes it to the command.09:29
nomikegeoffw8_, in theory yes. However in the standard configuration of most shell's it doesn't delete files and folders beginning with a "." (=hidden files)09:29
geoffw8_dr_willis: interesting, what do you mean?09:29
dr_willisgeoffw8_:  so    'echo rm  -rf *'   will show what its doing   i belive09:29

nomikedr_willis, no mention of DOS. There you only get a single string and every program has to parse the arguments by itself. Horrible09:30
dr_willisi do recall a few commands in linux that do parse the wildcards (or can) themselfs.09:32
dr_willisi seem to recall        unzip '*.zip'      ;)09:33
[Gentoo]dr_willis: if that dont work you can use a for loop09:33
dr_willisi rcall that  unzip '*.zip' works.. but     unzip *.zip  does not09:33

BrixSatkaelter: my debian (latest) is working ok with the card but i hate debian gnome-session-fallback09:45

santhosh<reisio>Because iam  working on kvm and i amloading 2 servers in kvm so in that case i want it09:48

ikoniasanthosh: it's not something you can just "tell someone"09:57

BrixSatkaelter:  but then again i just have a mouse and a black screen :p10:00
santhoshit is not hard ware ikonia it is software of kvm10:00
ikoniasanthosh: yes i know, but you have to understand the software to set the hardware/networking up properly for an LVM cluster10:01
ikoniasanthosh: it requires experience and understanding10:01

santhoshi want storage cluster10:05
santhoshtell me the steps10:05
BrixSatif i switch from lightdm to gdm i have 2 mouses, separated by 1000px10:05
reisiosanthosh: virtualized?10:05
santhoshi can follow that10:05
ikoniasanthosh: it's not "steps" it has to be planned10:05
reisioBrixSat: neat10:05
santhoshyes reisio10:06
reisiosanthosh: but why10:06
BrixSatreisio:  i would prefer one mouse and a working system :p10:06
ikoniasanthosh: it's, not 1,2,3 you need to have the hardware setup a certain way, have compatible hardware for that design and then understand the software a reasonable ammount10:06
santhoshi need that10:06
reisioBrixSat: that's reasonable :)10:06
ikoniasanthosh: it's not just "tell me steps" - you have to understand it and set it up10:06
santhoshu know that one or not10:06
reisiovirtualizing hardware is usually unnecessary overhead, in the case of a 'storage cluster', I'm thinking even moreso10:06

MagePsychoreisio: why {} \; is used at the last.. with empty string kind of10:09

BrixSatkaelter: reboots ends on same place10:09
Dark_lightI was wondering is there a ppa or something that tracks lts kernel releases ? (like 3.4 or 3.10)10:09
ikoniaDark_light: the lts kernels are now backported from other releases into the lts versions10:10
BrixSatbabinlonston: you need to provide more info, like how is the vsftp making login? using shell?10:10
BrixSatbabinlonston:  or using mysql10:10
MagePsychoreisio: sed -i 's/abc/abcd/g' Vs sed -i 's/abc/abcd/' with or without /g10:10
Dark_lightikonia: what happens when the other releases rech EOL though ?10:10
ikoniaDark_light: what do you mean ? they die, get no updates10:11
ActionParsnipikonia: but the backport from Quantal...Precise is LTS but Quantal wil expire before Precise10:11
reisioMagePsycho: g for global, replace all instances instead of just first10:11
ActionParsnipikonia: its an interesting question10:11
reisioMagePsycho: usually what people want10:11
BrixSatkaelter: formating the system will maybe solve the issue :p10:11

BrixSatbabinlonston: login via ssh using that same credentials10:12
MagePsychoreisio: you are my hero.. thanks a ton10:12
ikoniaActionParsnip: I could be wrong if that's changed, but backports where always just that10:12
reisioMagePsycho: np :)10:12
reisiofind is my hero10:12
Dark_lightikonia: no I mean what happens to the lts kernels when their target release reaches EOL do they still receive updates in other releases ?10:12
MagePsychoreisio: very funny :D10:13
ikoniaDark_light: don't believe so10:13
babinlonstonBrixSat: ssh how ? and now im used to login from my browser10:13
BrixSatbabinlonston: login either via ssh to see if the credentials are right or login via browser and check the vsftp log10:13
MagePsychoreisio: find . -iname 'Mage_*.xml' -prune -o -iname '*.xml' -exec sed -i 's/<active>true<\/active>/<active>false<\/active>/' {} \; is working fine.. but i need to display which files gets effected .. is there a way10:15
reisioMagePsycho: they won't all have active true?10:15
reisioMagePsycho: might want to grep first, then10:16
kaelterBrixSat: can you log in to a shell using ctrl-alt-f1?10:16

kostashi, would anyone be able to help with installing the latest ubuntu version on a laptop running on 8.10? I created a USB startup disk using the iso file and tried to boot the computer but it keeps booting using the installed 8.10. I changed the bios setting, tried different usb sticks, a cd, disabling the internal hard drive from the boot order... nothing10:42
fujipomponblazemore: hdmi works but I badely need spdif10:42
blazemorekostas: Are you sure the BIOS supports booting from USB? if it does, make sure the BIOS boot order is set to boot from the USB port BEFORE the internal hard drive10:43

VivekanandaI want to undo that before trying your change. Shouldn't I ?12:26
cfhowlettVivekananda, the preference would be for VBox to make the link, but as I said ... crap shoot.  I see a lot of experimenting in your future.  Course you COULD just install dual boot ubuntu and bypass all the vbox madness.  Try this: make a usb/cdrom.  Boot.  Set up your printer.  I BET it works natively with ubuntu.12:27

zykotick9!latest | johnmike12:35
ubottujohnmike: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea.

Vivekanandawhy would the updates ruin things ?13:00
ActionParsnipVivekananda: well now it doesnt so you need to explore the issue13:00
Vivekanandabtw where is the 2D ?13:00
BluesKajfujipompon, open VLC >tools>preferences>audio ,, then choose the alsa audio output module , and the device as the intel audio13:00
fujipomponoutput module is alsa output, and the "uses spdif if possible" is marked13:00
=== p0wp0w_ is now known as p0wp0w
BluesKajyes , make sure the device is the intel13:01
fujipomponBluesKaj : ok for output module, on alsa, but then under device I have at least 20 choices possible !!!13:02
ActionParsnipVivekananda: you select it from the login sceen13:03
ActionParsnipVivekananda: its better for VMs ni a way that it uses fewer resources so will impact the host less13:03

jacks_coolHello! Getting a black screen with cursor blinking on startup! Ubuntu 12.04 LTS!13:04
ActionParsnipjacks_cool: what GPU do you use?13:04
BluesKajfujipompon, choose , IEC958 (S/PDIF) Digital Audio output13:05
jacks_coolActionParsnip: ATI13:05
VivekanandaActionParsnip: again , that was working right before an update install. but if you said something that I missed please elaborate. Also the guest key + c was set to scaling for vbox. earlier I had scaling enabled and was getting the top and bottom bars. now I see that on disabling it I can see them but then with no scalinng the vbox covers only half of the screen :(13:05
emptHi, i'm using kubuntu desktop and right now i was working with xfig and pressed meta+s now everything on my desktop is gone!! my background, widgets all gone! plz help :(13:05
jacks_coolActionParsnip: I installed graphics driver few weeks back. It was working fine. Don't know what's going wrong today!13:06
ActionParsnipjacks_cool: tried the boot option: nomodeset13:06
jacks_coolreplac quite splash with nomodeset?13:06
ActionParsnipjacks_cool: its a kernel boot option to set13:07
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter13:07
ActionParsnipVivekananda: if the 2D session works then we know he 3D has been knocked out in some way13:07
ActionParsnipVivekananda: we can then focus efforts there, at present we know nothing and simply bleating "it used to work" achieves nothing13:08
fujipomponBluesKaj : OK done !13:09
emptHi, i'm using kubuntu desktop and right now i was working with xfig and pressed meta+s now everything on my desktop is gone!! my background, widgets all gone! plz help :(13:10
VivekanandaActionParsnip: well hmmm. I tried the host+c and as I said I got the virtualbox menu (on top ) back. my ubuntu is a guest on win 7 host via vbox13:10
ActionParsnipVivekananda: could try:  unity --replace13:11
fujipomponBluesKaj : exact name "HDA Intel MID, ALC662 rev1 Digital IEC958 (S/PDIF) Digital Audio Output"13:12
BluesKajfujipompon, looks correct , ..it is correct if it works for you :)13:12
Slugzehello, say anyone is using synergy around here?  Got a lil problem, 2 stations, both on ubuntu 13.04, each having a mouse attached (- usb -) When i'm using mouse1 on pc1, the back / forward is doing perfect, same for mouse2/pc2 .  But when i'm doing mouse1(server)pc2(client) the backforwar button of the mouse is doing a "slide left and right" ( using per exemple firefox ) .  So i'm wondering if theres a quickfix for that ?13:13
fujipomponyes but with the fragilities : error message + touchy volume level + soud and video decay as evocated higher13:15
Vivekanandawhen I stretch 2D with scaling disabled then the desktop screen is only a in the middle of the elongated window. when I enable scaling then it also increases in size but the bottom goes out of of the screen13:15
fujipomponBluesKaj : yes but with the fragilities : error message + touchy volume level + soud and video decay as evocated above13:16
fujipomponBluesKaj : the multiple choices of device : that what makes me think of conflicts between the differents "audio controlers, mapers , etc....13:17

fujipomponBluesKaj : Let's have a try  ! can you show me the command line to uninstall pavucontrol for example ?13:19
elixirfujipompom: me?13:19
fujipomponsorry that was for BluesKaj :13:20
VivekanandaActionParsnip: was it sudo unity --replace ?13:20
Walexelixir: too few details.13:20
jacks_coolActionParsnip: thanks it works! now I have saved that settings permanently.13:20
elixirI am pretty new to ubuntu, and can't find out which comand to try13:20
fujipomponelixir : sorry that was for BluesKaj :13:21
ikoniaelixir: reboot your laptop and it will probably come back to life13:21
BluesKajfujipompon, not to worry , there's no conflict despite your concerns13:21
elixirWalex, ikonia: Ubuntu 12.10, i5 4gb ram and what else.. ? I tried rebooting many times and tried certain commands too...but none helped13:22
BluesKajfujipompon, most users need pavucontrol/pulseaudio for webaudio (mostly flash)13:22
Walexelixir: if you have a wifi problem, you should be listing which APs are being listed as accessible etc.13:22
elixirWalex: ifconfig says: http://pastebin.com/uUF0sWJw and I am currently connected using a hotspot from mobile13:23
fujipomponBluesKaj : By the way :  other audio apps like RhythmBox still works fine through spdif , sending stereo signal13:23
elixirWalex: sorry, I have less idea how to list them, can you please tell me the command so that I can pastebin them?13:24
BluesKaj fujipompon  yes of course , with pcm ,that's expected13:25
fujipomponBluesKaj : intresting clue : I must competly shut down RhythmBox otherwise VLC can't play any sound ! As long as Rhythm is on , even on pause !13:27
Petreankohello al13:27
PetreankoA quick question not sure if I am in the right room.... Whats the diff between ubuntu 12.04 and ubuntu 13.04.... in the website it says long time support for 12.04 but 13.04 is up to date and support only till jan next year... so wouldnt 12.04 get any updates that 13.04 get?13:27
FloodBot1Petreanko: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.13:27
ActionParsnipVivekananda: without the sudo, yes13:28
elixirWalex: ?13:28
elixiror can someone else take up the initiative to help me please?13:28
Petreankocan someone help me with choosing ubuntu version to download and try13:29
MonkeyDustPetreanko  12.04 if you want ling support, 13.04 if you want the latest stuff13:30
OerHeksPetreanko, the LTS provides stable tested packages, 13.04 has newer packages with functionality, both get security updates. i would suggest try 13.0413:30
Petreanko@monkeydust Thank you13:30
Petreanko@0erheks Thank you, so will I get updates past jan 2014 if I use 13.04 or will have to choose to reinstall later?13:31
OerHeksPetreanko, no, updates will stop when the support is over.13:32
vishnu_Does anyone used python desktop enviroment?13:32
fujipomponBluesKaj : fundamental question : do you think it could be easier to find stable  soluces at my troubles under a LTS version of Ubuntu like 12.04 ???13:34
VivekanandaActionParsnip: it is the stupid vbox13:34
Walexelisa87: how to list Wifi depends on which WiFi configuration system you are using13:34
Petreanko@0erHeks one last question ... If I chose 12.04 I still can install latest software and update them when a new update is available right?13:34
MonkeyDustvishnu_  python is a programming code, not a desktop environment13:34
sanmanPetreanko, after support runs out on 13.04 you will be able to upgrade to the next version13:34
BluesKajfujipompon, no13:34
VivekanandaI tried doing and undoing a couple of times and restarting the machine and voila got back the 1600 and 900 , figure!!13:34
arc__hello i can't get back into ubuntu13:34
arc__i can't do grub-install for somereason13:34
arc__it ask's if /dev is mounted13:34
Petreanko@sanman Thanks for clarifying I thought I might have to ditch it and start over again13:35
Vivekanandanow onto printer woes13:35
OerHeksPetreanko, sure, you will get updates, but not newer versions of packages (functionality), else you need to upgrade13:35
BluesKajfujipompon, you have to make sure the settings in pavucontrol are the same outputs as in VLC and the audio controller13:35
sanmanPetreanko, as for the LTS versions, typically you will not see new versions of packages pushed into LTS13:35
sanmanPetreanko, you will see bug fixes and security updates, not really new functionality13:35
Petreanko@0erheks Thank you13:36
vishnu_Yaa Buddy it is programming language but "I am talking about Qtile"  its a Window manager written in python13:36
Petreanko@sanman okay. so 13.04 would be a wise choice here?13:37
kostascan anyone help with this? I just istalled ubuntu 12.4 on a laptop. After the installation I got a prompt to remove the installation media and press enter. I did so and got to a blank screen with a cursos. The computer does not boot up 12.4, just goes blank. Any ideas?13:37
sanmanPetreanko, most people go with the non-LTS versions because they like to get new features, I myself run some machines at LTS and some on the regular releases13:37
fujipomponOther basic question : at the begining of my research  I thought  maybe 13.04 didn't choose the proper driver ! Every body says NO WAy ! How come there's not possible anymore to try differents drivers for a device to find the est one ???13:38
sanmanPetreanko, it all depends on what you want13:38
MonkeyDustvishnu_  so it's qtile, not python, and it's a window manager, not a desktop environment13:38
fujipomponBluesKaj : On my way to check out pavucontrol13:38
sanmanPetreanko, for a desktop machine you can probably go 13.0413:38
Slugzekostas,  you're sure you installed grub?13:39
Petreanko@sanman sorry to keep spamming you with questions... please suggest me here my use would be most for 3d and graphics design.. softwares I use would be blender, gimp, mypaint and krita othen than that libreoffice and use internet13:39
vishnu_ok sry.... thanx. i am getting trouble in installing it13:39
sanmanPetreanko, if you want a stable server that's going to get security updates for years to come go with LTS13:39
sanmanPetreanko, go with 13.04, you'll probably be happier with that decision13:39
kostasSlugze: grub?13:39
Petreanko@sanman Thank you very much for your time and patience..I appreciate it13:40
sanmanPetreanko, you're welcome13:40

Wulframnairportyh: Ok, that's good too. When you pop it in and turn on the computer make sure to boot off the USB, just like how you had to do to access the install prompt. There should be an option for Live Environment, test ubuntu before you install, etc.14:17

xtrezMonkeyDust, the strange thing is when i search apache it only shows only paid items, but when i type apache2 then only is shows the correct package. that's really not an optimized search.15:19

xtrezmitch__, using apt-get it's there but doesn't shows up in ubuntu software center.15:20
servercbeI dont understand why i cant see my pc on the network15:20
Wulframnairportyh_: you understand that we made a backup, right? This way if we mess up all you need to do is reload ubuntu's live environment (the one you're in now), mount /dev/sda3 (your / filesystem) to /mnt/ubuntu, then navigate to cd /mnt/ubuntu/boot/grub and copy (cp) ./grub.cfg.backup to ./grub.cfg, right?15:21

airportyh_Wulframn: yes, got that15:21

mitch__xtrez, yeah, i see what you mean now. i am relatively new to linux in the grand scheme of things myself so. i see what you mean. yeah if you do the technical option at the bottom, i believe it will give you a better chance at finding the things you are looking for.15:28

servercbe.. I dont know what to do now. ..  Why i cant see my pc on the network... tell me what you need from me and I will send it to you inmediatlythanks Wulfram15:29
airportyhWulframn: I think it's because I checked the box that says to install the boot loader in /dev/sda315:30
xtrezmitch__, yeah correct :) this is what i was looking for. :) so things are hidden under technical items, and other things that are meant to sell are first displayed :D15:30
Wulframnairportyh_: Ah, ok. If you're seeing the McAfee bootscreen it sounds like windows overwrote the MBR15:30
LajjlaIs it weird that putty from another machine seems to yield the results of scripts faster than executing it in the terminal on the machine itself?15:30
Wulframnairportyh_: /dev/sda3 is marked bootable and is where grub is stored, so that shouldn't be an issue15:31
mitch__xtrez, sort of. it's meant to keep those old school linux technical packages and items out of the way for people that are looking for simple things.15:31
mitch__xtrez, i think it's meant to take that "scary technical barrier" out of ubuntu like it used to have15:31
xtrezmitch__, ubuntu getting more commercialized that's not very good15:31
Wulframnairportyh_: I have to go. If you still don't have luck here try #linux and #grub. Sorry and goodluck, brother15:31

daftykinsJart: ah at this point i recall something - the liveUSB naturally boots with its' existing versions of packages, i.e. kernel version etc etc, whilst you may have installed it with updates enabled - if your internet connection was active at that time it would've installed all the updates - potentially putting on a kernel/more that breaks. do you think that was likely? (you installed with updates?)18:15
Jartdaftykins: i didn't install the packages at the initial install. i did it after the first run. the first run worked just fine. i had installed it this way in the past, and before bumblebee, it worked just fine18:17
daftykinsJart: ok, so far the difference i'm seeing in the logs is DRI being loaded at line 255 on the Live, but it isn't on the install18:18

daftykinscmartin0: you can search for them with 'apt-cache search <package name...>'20:01

vmussahisto, I found the packages it uninstalled: almost everything is related to "x11-apps", "xserver", "xorg-video" and things like that21:07
vmussalike those*21:07
histovmussa: Yeah you need those21:07
Nico___histo: So I can keep my old files and stuff, just have the option to boot into Windows or Ubuntu?21:07
Vivekanandahisto: yep I did not input the eth0 line earlier . now I did . So what I am trying to follow is this http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/change-ubuntu-server-from-dhcp-to-a-static-ip-address/21:07
reisiovmussa: that'd do it21:07
vmussaI see21:07
VivekanandaI now got the eth0 but I dont have net21:07
Vivekanandahisto: should I post my ifconfig and also my /etc/network/interfaces ?21:08
vmussahisto, reisio, so I should copy whatever it uninstalled and install again?21:08
usr13Vivekananda: Does the router have DHCP server running?21:08
Vivekanandausr13: not very familiar with dhcp setting but yes it is checked21:09
usr13Vivekananda: Is it connected to the LAN but no internet?21:09
reisiovmussa: try ubuntu-desktop first21:09
histoVivekananda: if you didn't have the auto eth0    line in there that's why eth0 didn't start on boot. Once it's there restart and all will be good21:09
usr13Vivekananda: Can you ping the gateway router?21:09
Vivekanandausr13: my host is win 7 has the router and has net. my ubuntu is a guest on vbox . I changed the network mode to abridged and since I am hosting a LOCal app I am trying to get it to show a static internal ip21:10
histoVivekananda: If you have no net and can ping   you need to add nameservers to your interfaces21:10
Vivekanandahisto: do I ping from the vm or from win7 to the internet ?21:10
histoVivekananda: ping   on the vm21:10
Vivekanandayes it pings21:11
usr13Vivekananda: Add line to /etc/resolv.conf   "nameserver"21:11
vmussareisio, ok21:11
usr13Vivekananda: and/or take out the bogus one.21:11
histoVivekananda: then in the /etc/network/interfaces file add dns-nameservers whatever else21:12
histousr13: you can't use resolv.conf because it will be overwritten by the resolvconf package21:12
usr13Vivekananda: Or, yes, do as histo said.21:12
usr13histo: Yes, quite possibly, (but only if he is set to dhcp).21:12
histoVivekananda: just make sure it's in the iface section21:13
Vivekanandafollowing histo then . Also the resolv.conf tells me do not edit this file-- changes will be overwritten :(21:13
Traccyhisto : http://pastie.org/821283621:13
histousr13: no it will still be overwritten even without dhcp on boot21:13
gregor3005hi, i try to install ubuntu 13.04 on an pentium 4 processor workstation and i get an internal error when i boot into the live cd, executable /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test21:13
vmussareisio, apparently it is installing everything haskell removed21:13
usr13Vivekananda: Yea, on the next boot, or if you query a dhcp server that is giving false info.21:13
gregor3005also unity didn't boot up, only two desktop icons "examples" and "install ubuntu 13.04"21:13
histoTraccy: What is that?21:14
hadifarnoudis like ?21:14
Traccyhisto :error21:14
reisiovmussa: sounds right21:14
Traccyevery time i run programmes21:14
histoTraccy: from?   You just sent me a random pastebin perhaps giving more details may help.21:14
Vivekanandahisto: you said to add dns-nameserver S ? singular or plural ?21:14
usr13histo: Yes, but if the dhcp server is giving correct info, (valid nameserver), it won't matter.21:14
Vivekanandaalso let me paste what I have after adding21:15
histoTraccy: 1. Why are you logged in as root? 2. What version of ubuntu are you running21:15
Traccyyes iam root21:15
wilee-nileegregor3005, Possible number of issues in general ram amount, graphic drivers are two that come to mind, bad iso or burn.21:15
histoVivekananda: plural21:15
Traccyhisto : VERSION="12.04.2 LTS, Precise Pangolin"21:16
vmussareisio, the problem is that I updated to grub 1.99, and I don't know how to boot ubuntu the right way from that "bash-like command interface", do you know where should I get help?21:16

usr13histo: dns-nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ?  (Maybe it will take both?)21:17
Vivekanandahisto: pastebin.com/rYpprHY621:17
reisiovmussa: how is that a problem?21:17
gregor3005wilee-nilee: the iso is ok, boots perfect with an vm, ram = 1,5gb, graphic is onboard -> i try ubuntu 1221:17
histousr13: no dns-nameservers  you can specify multiples21:17
wilee-nileegregor3005, Same computer?21:17
=== jpmh_ is now known as jpmh
gregor3005wilee-nilee: no on my workstation, the old workstation is for a friend who need its only for firefox and thunderbird21:18
histoVivekananda: looks good but just FYI that is google's free dns server you can add the other one if you want to that line or use your ISPs nameservers21:18
daftykinsgregor3005: sounds like the systems graphics card isn't supported21:18
Vivekanandashould I restart my host too ? or just the vm ?21:18
wilee-nileegregor3005, Cool, there is always xubuntu and lubuntu.21:18
usr13histo: Ok. Well, it is something I don't use.  I either set perminate leases in the router or set to static and just edit /etc/resolv.conf21:18
histoVivekananda: you can just restart networking21:18
gregor3005daftykins: i have an ati 9250 (128mb ddr) which i can test with this workstation21:19
histoVivekananda: sudo service networking restart   on the VM21:19

wilee-nileeGuest58029, Back to trool again eh.21:22
daftykinsgregor3005: ubuntu uses unity, which requires 3D, xubuntu uses xfce which is lightweight and 3D21:22
usr13gregor3005: xfce vs unity21:22
histoTraccy: yeah you need to set your locale. What is uncommented in your /etc/locale.gen ?21:22
