MrLahey Hey thereI am running Lubuntu 13.04 and can't seem to resolve a monitor issue. I am on a laptop with a 1280x800 display, and connected an external monitor with a 1920x1080 display. On the large external display the lxpanel bar is the width of the screen, but program windows such as Firefox etc are behaving as if they are on the laptop monitor with a 1280x800 resolution-in other words they open as smaller windows in the upper left han00:04
MrLaheyd corner of the screen. I have been playing around with arandr but cannot fix it00:04
robin0800barbara____, Don't think it will show until you have set it up00:05
barbara____any idea how i can launch it00:05
MercXMrLahey: are you clonginy our monitors?00:05
frinottMercX: shoot00:05
barbara____alright im logging in lets see if it goes to the tray00:06

MrLaheyMercX  I'm not sure if I need to be cloning...I just want it to work fullscreen when I am hooked up to the monitor and work normally on the laptop when not using the external monitor00:10
trismMercX: you need the -llibrary lines at the end after the objects they reference00:10

kroq-gar78fOmey ok. you can make sure of the ethernet interface's name by running "ifconfig".00:25
_andyj_Guest19355: you need to check your kernel configuration, the mainline (may/or may not have) included that ACPI patch at some point.  Reading for you: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile00:26

Anonymous_Dover, why do you ask?00:27
_andyj_Guest19355: when you have the kernel downloaded you need to run make menuconfig and check if it has your ACPI option, if it doesn't you'll need to patch the kernel00:27
kroq-gar78fOmey shift+pg up/down should let you scroll. ok, try that i guess00:27

breedI started with 12.10, so I don't have much of a referenc e01:13
jKlausI don't understand why ubuntu is just pushing crap out the door01:14
jKlaushold a release until its ready to go..01:14
robotdevilZIPY: yes that link only has desktop images01:14
jKlausputting shit out there is just making more people leave the community01:14
failmasterrobotdevil, change it in a more effective way http://torrent.ubuntu.com:6969/01:14
breedAnyways, does anyone here have experience with Unetbootin?  I just installed it and it asks for my root password, but won't accept my root password01:14
fellayaboyhow do i merge two folders together using commandline.. say i have 2 User folders..each is located in a different directory how do i move them and merge all files and subfolders together01:14
robotdevilZIPY: and there is a bug in manual partitioning in the installer in the desktop image01:14
failmasterbreed, try gksudo "untebootin"01:14
Mace268i'm coming from red hat based distros. how much different is ubuntu under the hood?01:15
shoosahdo u have any idea how to change sudoers file without root password?!01:15
breedfailmaster:  that worked.  Do I need to do that every time I start it?  Do you mind telling me why that worked -- I'm tryna learn bash01:15
reisioMace268: they all do the same things deep down01:15
reisioshoosah: that would defeat the purpose01:15
Mace268like is init stuff very similar?01:16
zykotick9shoosah: obviously, you can't.01:16
fellayaboyMace269 you'll use ubuntu software center to install programs and basically you'll use sudo apt-get install "a program" to isntall any program from commandline... ubuntu uses .deb isntallation files rather than rpm01:16
failmasterbreed, until it works without root privileges - yes01:16
reisioMace268: depends on when you left red hat01:16
Mace268still run centos on my game server, and run sme server here at home01:16
SonikkuAmericaMace268: The basics are still GNU/Linux, but once you hit packaging, things change fast.01:16
Marleneereisio : the command clean bash only what about clean login and "last" cmd01:16
zykotick9shoosah: well, there is not root password in ubuntu.  but you need sudo (aka root) access.01:16
shoosahI have the admin permission but not the root password, I just modified one of the files in sudoers and now it doesnt work out anymore!01:17
failmastersome common red hat difficults seemed to me way much more tough01:17
failmasterespecially packaging-related )01:17
fellayaboyMace269 sudo apt-get install gimp will install gimp fromt he repos..meaning that "gimp" is recognized they ahve it on the server and it will isntall it...say you download a .deb and double click that .deb.. you'll get a gui installer.. u could also use sudo dpkg -i "the program" to install a .deb file01:17
zykotick9shoosah: 9 times out of 10, modifying sudoers is the wrong method anyways.  what do you want to acheieve?01:17
reisioMarlenee: what does it matter when people were logged in?01:18
kdawgI TRIED MAKING A MULTI ISO WITH XBOOT however the thing only puts for if the images iun the main image folder01:18
reisioMace268: http://nakedape.cc/wiki/PackageManagerCheatsheet :)01:18
kdawgand then i find it has another image folder inside the image folder01:18
fellayaboyhow do i merge two folders together using commandline.. say i have 2 User folders..each is located in a different directory how do i move them and merge all files and subfolders together01:18
shoosahaykotick9, I do need to change it in order to give the right previlage for installing ceph01:18
Mace268seems ubuntu is a "have your cake and eat it too" distro :D01:18
failmastershoosah, maybe you should have start with sudo su and passwd?01:18
shoosahI just entered pkexec visudo01:19
=== kcristiano_ is now known as kcrist
kdawghow would one load the other os if there not in the menu01:19
zykotick9shoosah: what?  that doesn't make much sense.  do you have a user that can run sudo?  if you, you have "ubuntu's version of root"01:19
failmastershoosah, root doesn't have password by default, the whole thing was planned to do via sudo01:19
shoosahthe root password is simply different from the admin pass!01:19
ZIPYkdawg: u need to update grub: sudo grub-update01:20
zykotick9s/if you/if so/01:20
zykotick9!root | shoosah01:20
ubottushoosah: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo01:20
shoosahI have two different users on my system01:20
failmasterbut nothing stops you from reviving it until you 100% sure that you need it01:20
ZIPYkdawg: it will search for other os'01:20
kdawgi am on a windows 7 machine using xboot to make the image and checking it with QEMU emulator that comes with xboot01:20
edgari have a question i am trying to connect my laptops harddrive to this laptop via a usb but my laptop cannot install it or see it...anyone knows how to fix01:20
Mace268friendly enough not to be a pita but can still open it up and make it do all the custom stuff. Is this about right?01:20
failmastershoosah, due to above fact it basically wants you to provide not "root password" in most cases, but the one which is set for common user account in order to grant permissions on sudo execution01:21
zykotick9shoosah: if you want a 2nd user to use sudo, use the 1st user to add the 2nd to the "sudo" group.  don't mess with sudoers.01:21
failmasterthat's why they are different01:21

Mace268is ubuntu just as customizable as any other distro?01:24

reisiozykotick9: Unity is open source, too01:26
failmasterMace268, there is a system of building from source-packages in debian, so in ubuntu01:26

ni652336use y.u.m.i01:28
reisiozykotick9: it's free software, anyone can modify it any way they like01:28
failmasterMace268, there is only one remark about using debian-based distros, they have pretty much the same, common and shared bugs and using non-LTS version or not stable in debian terms for servers and production purposes is a bad idea from start01:29
kdawgusing xboot cause it can create iso files from other iso files01:29
kdawgSARDU and YUMI cant01:29
ni652336yumi can for shure01:30

Mace268i don't mind getting my hands dirty, i'm just real rusty... been on windows for the last several years.01:31
failmasterMace268, my subjective perception on things in context of the question is that it will be fine, there is a backup in case of ubuntu, hordes of people, which makes it easier for maintainers to troubleshoot things01:32
jmson311anyone know how to add a user in bash and get instant access to all of the folders in home/user without having to manually login to the account?01:32

zykotick9jmson311: ahhh, that's the default - read access for everyone?01:32

kdawgwilee-nilee multisystem loader which one was that02:10
DoverMopetey, it says, test google.com and output it so you can read everything02:10

kdawgI no of 3 programs i have yet to use yumi except for looking at the options02:11
ttystealepetey, that will redirect standard output into the command less, this is best used when reading large files such as logs, it will allow you to read output without having to scroll up a thousand lines, it isn't thate useful for a ping command02:11

wilee-nileekdawg, I have it on a 32 gig usb, never had a file limit you have iso's more than 4 gigs02:13
kdawgwell it sounded like initially stated that how you worded it. All i would need to do is put the iso in the root directory of the usb and it would work. however that makes no size02:14
kdawgwell for instance the ubuntu8versions of it is just over 5 gigs02:14
curatrixIf you just copy the iso's to a disk it wont boot....you have to use a prog to make a bootable drive with the iso's02:14

kdawgyeah there are 3 programs for windows i have found so far none seem to be perfect but the linux tool u mentioned by looking at the instructions seems a lot more complicated02:15

wilee-nileenbros652, Cool.02:16
kdawggonna try yumi first cause i am diffinately more comfortable on windows02:16
wilee-nileekdawg, Yumi will be a problem I guarantee I have used it you will be doing a slow and I mean really slow contigent defraggs often, tha is a the bane of using a windows usb loader when multiloading.02:19
wilee-nileeat least that I found with yumi anyway.02:19
xirreSay you have a program that has limits by applying a parameter as -safe. While in safe, it shouldn't be able to run other programs of itself. However, there's a security flaw that allows it to use a different code to start up another instance of itself in -trusted mode which then gives it 100% privledges. Meaning it can access the root folder, delete it, and format all drives. How do you go about limiting this program to the folde02:19
xirrer its in and only giving it access to that part?02:19

xirreI need help. Say you have a program that has limits by applying a parameter as -safe. While in safe, it shouldn't be able to run other programs of itself. However, there's a security flaw that allows it to use a different code to start up another instance of itself in -trusted mode which then gives it 100% privledges. Meaning it can access the root folder, delete it, and format all drives. How do you go about limiting this program02:26

Runemoroilee-nilee, You told Speedfranca that Linux is virus free, but a virus could upload your home folder or delete it02:42
wilee-nileeIncrease, you might look here, you can make a whole ext3 a persistent as big as you like by naming it casper-rw, and have the iso in another fast32   https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent02:43
IncreaseWhat is an ext3?02:43
IncreasePretty much everything you just said didn't make much sense to me. Llol02:43
wilee-nileeRunemoro, This is an old argument, I'm not going to bother to be honest.02:43
wilee-nileeIncrease, ext3 is a partition type used for linux.02:44
wilee-nileeRunemoro,And it was the bot that made that statement to them.02:45
DoverMoRunemoro, indeed it was a bot. And I assume it's more of a community choice to deny the existance of such things02:46
wilee-nileeIncrease, THat pendrive only makes a 4 gig persistent you would have to make another partition as I describes to have all of that space used.02:47

wilee-nileeeph3meral, If so follow holstein's bot prompt.04:17
holstein___anon___: depends on the hardware.. usually no troubles04:17
eph3meralwilee-nilee, hmm, sort of - it somewhat depends on if I select "USB: Multicard" or "UEFI: PNY FD 2.0", but both cases are close to the same, the screen goes black (or in the former case just shrinks into the top left corner as if the resolution has changed, and I get a bright pink vertical line on the left edge of my screen04:17
eph3meralbut otherwise it could probably be described as black with a blinking cursor, yes04:18
eph3meralcome to think of it, hitting keys generates control sequences like ^[[a04:18

wilee-nilee!nomodeset | eph3meral04:29
ubottueph3meral: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter04:29
wilee-nileeeph3meral, and added like this is all. boot=casper nomodeset quiet splash --"04:30
Ubulostdoes anyone know where to set the client password on ubuntu host for network log in?04:30
eph3meralwilee-nilee: hmm, did that, the screen simply flashes once and I still get a blinking cursor04:32
wilee-nileeeph3meral, Not sure than, sorry. ;)04:32
dr_willisUbulost:  clarify what you mean04:32
eph3meralwilee-nilee: what does the -- at the end signify btw?04:33
UbulostI have to ubuntu VMs on my linux box here and I'm trying to learn to network them.  I've gone thru about 15 tutorials.  I can see each from the others filemanagers but when I try and access it asks for a password, and none of the tutorials said anything about setting up a password and I'm stumped04:34
wilee-nileeeph3meral, Not sure exactly, but you can remove the quiet splash and see the text and maybe see the problem, you keep the kernel the same with nomodeset just adding it is all.04:34

eph3meralI can't remember, I feel like I recall reading I shouldn't bother going above like 1-2G ?04:50
reisioeph3meral: 8GB could theoretically be useful04:50
reisiobut no more04:50
eph3meralalso, should swap go at the beginning or end?04:50

kdawgyou looking at deploring these were there is no network connection?06:47
z8zbut i need to make sure i have everything with me06:48
z8zany possible package06:48
kdawgwow i think that extremely hard to do06:49
kdawgbut someone in here might no a better answer06:49
kdawgbut if you can point me in the right direction for this debian copy06:49
kdawgi don't see it on debian.org06:50
iceroot_z8z: you could sync the repo and create a local repo06:50
iceroot_z8z: apt-mirror06:50
AugurnzIs there a way to process a text lof file with the "sed" command if the text to replace with contains an "&" ampersand symbol?06:50
karimore info! now when i actually installed flash straight from clicking the link (middle of black flash screen) , in the middle of installing i get flash video to work, but when the install is complete. Video will  vanish. Not so good way to watch videos06:50
iceroot_Augurnz: what should be the problem there? dont understand the question06:50
z8zyeah i know that. I just wanted to know if dvd iso exist06:51
iceroot_z8z: not will all packages06:51
Augurnziceroot: the ampersand is reserved for something in sed06:51
iceroot_Augurnz: escape it06:51
iceroot_Augurnz: see also #sed06:51
Augurnzthanks iceroot06:51
z8ziceroot_: sad :(06:52
iceroot_Augurnz: i guess it would be s/he\&llo/hello/06:52
iceroot_z8z: normally there is no need06:52
iceroot_z8z: and you can use apt-mirror06:52
iceroot_z8z: the dvd will contain old packages after some days and then you have security issues and so on06:52
Augurnziceroot: yeah, I should have thought of that, been trying for a while now06:52
dr_willisapt-cacher-ng  is a handy tool also z8z06:52
z8ziceroot_: so with apt-mirror i can create a folder full with packages and carry around right?06:53
iceroot_z8z: yes06:53
iceroot_z8z: it will create a local repository06:53
kdawglooks like the debian package your were selecting if you buy the cd from on of the venders06:54
iceroot_z8z: you can add it then in your /etc/apt/sources.list06:54
z8ziceroot_: cool...so i'd better try that06:54
iceroot_z8z: but it may be something like 50GB06:55
z8ziceroot_: yeah i'm expecting something like that :D06:55
z8ziceroot_: sorry to annoy you but i have last question that i always asked myself... is there a way to download all the sources of every package at the same time?06:56
dr_willis there are source repos06:57
iceroot_z8z: you mean the source packages?06:57
z8ziceroot_: yeah ... how those works?06:58
iceroot_z8z: i guess "sudo apt-get source *"06:58
iceroot_z8z: it will not work with normal packages because of conflicts06:58
iceroot_z8z: but with sources packages it should work06:58
iceroot_z8z: maybe bash will not execute it because of "too many arguments"06:58
z8ziceroot_: lol06:58
z8ziceroot_: ok so i'll give a try to that too thanks06:59
iceroot_z8z: but you really mean source package? it is something different then a *.deb package06:59
z8ziceroot_: yeah i mean that06:59

purezenActionParsnip, Can I just ask why in usb-modeswitch..? Because the modem does not work even after being detected..09:42
purezenActionParsnip, This shall mean that something besides is at fault as well.. because usb-modeswitch is only responsible for getting the modem detected.. Am I right..?09:43
purezenActionParsnip, Just curious..:-)09:45
ActionParsnippurezen: then the kernel I guess, the device is a USB storage first because Windows users have issues installing drivers (apparently), so once the driver installs the OS flips it to a serial modem (which arent new in any way)09:45
ActionParsnippurezen: so either the device isnt getting flipped, or the modem is not correctly detected after the flip09:46

LandswellsongLope, this doesn't make it correct, does it? :D 2GB times 0 would be 0.10:43
Lopeokay well now I just tried as a test, count=1G (and left out seek)10:44
LandswellsongLope, however it does work at my setup at least with 2M10:44

tgaryBluesKaj: mc has a spec. extension editor, there is no other...use always... as in e.g. a browser. Same for Eclipse: spec editor. I "think" it reads these default apps from somewhere, and would be nice to update all apps to "kde apps" instead of "gnome apps" (not jus these two).10:47
Lopefound a better command: fallocate -l 10G gentoo_root.img10:47
LandswellsongLope, what filesystem are you using? If you use count, you would actually copy bytes from /dev/zero. I'm sorry I was misleading, your command was ok since it would just produce a sparce file, not copyin from /dev/zero but just declaring filesize, but the filesystem layer may optimize that out.10:47

Lopeoh lol, ignore what I said earlier about the filesize going up to 10MB and down to zero again in a loop. was using gnome commander and it was truncating the number without giving me any idea that it was doing that. (silly UI)10:49

Ultimate4Hello there. I was upgrading from ubuntu 11.10 to ubuntu 12.04 LTS via Update Manager. At the instant when updates were being downloaded(probably 1.2 GB were downloaded and 200 MB more to go), my pc shut down because of electricity fluctation. Can i resume the upgrade from the point  where i left earlier?11:26
cfhowlettUltimate4, not adviseable11:26
cfhowlettUltimate4, best practice is to torrent the 12.04 ISO, make a boot usb and clean install11:27
ActionParsnipUltimate4: could drop to root recovery mode and run:  sudo apt-get -f install11:27
ActionParsnipUltimate4: if its only the download stage then you should be ok11:27
cfhowlettUltimate4, best to assume the aborted upgrade is fragged but you could try it.  expect unforeseen consequences11:27
ActionParsnipcfhowlett: its only the download stage, not install11:27
Ultimate4ActionParsnip: Yes, it was only in download stage and it wasn't even completed. I am sure about that.11:28
cfhowlettActionParsnip, noted.  I figure scrambled packages are the order , but it is his machine ...11:28
BluesKajActionParsnip, I do use the cli quite a lot , and do use the arrow keys to find previous commands, but I mostly use a text file for a lot of those commands .What is the path for bash history ?11:31
llutzBluesKaj: "history" command, or ~/.bash_history  file11:32
=== linuxuz3r_ is now known as linuxuz3r
ActionParsnipUltimate4: try:  sudo apt-get -f install     so you know packages are square then rerun the upgrade like you did before11:34
ActionParsnipBluesKaj: you can also pipe history to grep to search for old commands11:35
Ultimate4ActionParsnip: Can i run this command in normal user mode or should i reboot my PC and enter into recovery mode?11:35

chaluI recently installed the new ubuntu 13 in a new partition, because my previous wubi installation failed to boot after I adjusted my windows 7 partiton. Now I need to retrieve my files from the old wubi-based installation. any hints where wubi kept my files ??11:36
ActionParsnipchalu: why do you not have a backup of the files?11:36
BluesKajyeah ActionParsnip , I keep a text file with categories that use certain commands as a quick reference guide  and have done so a for quite a few yrs now11:37
chaluI have some, but there are some I forgot to backup. I did not know the wubi installation will fail to boot11:37
ActionParsnipchalu: if you mount your NTFS, you can then mount the wubi disk file and access the data11:37
ActionParsnipchalu: I suggest you review your backup regime, it is clearly not fit for purpose11:38
cfhowlettchalu, wubi has a documented history of being suboptimal.  you might want to do a normal dual boot or consider virtualbox for ubuntu11:38
BluesKajhe already has done11:39
chaluyes, I installed gparted and could eventually see the partitions. Its all in a single HDD, but I could not see the files11:39
MonkeyDustchalu  wubi is a windows application, it's not a real ubuntu installation11:39
chaluok, if wubi is a windows application, then it certainly keeps my ubuntu-based files somewhere11:40
gp5st`sudo tail -f /var/log/apache2/example.com/access.log | grep -v "/favicon.ico"` works, but `sudo tail -f /var/log/apache2/example.com/access.log | grep -v "/favicon.ico" | grep -v zite.com` filters everything and gives no output. I switched the second grep to "grep A" (which should match Aug in ever line's date, and I still get nothing. (yes, I am forcing requests via curl, so I know I should be seeing something). removing the `grep -v favico11:41
cfhowlettchalu, inside a wubi based folder in your windows subdirectory11:41
chalusorry am very new to ubuntu11:42
ActionParsnipgp5st: is the log file not readable by user?11:42
chaluok. so if I boot into windows and locate the wubi installation folder, how do I proceed from there pls?11:42
ActionParsnipchalu: in the wubi.dsk or root.dsk file. I forget which11:43
gp5stActionParsnip: It's an apache access log, so no, it's not11:43
chaluthanks a lot11:43
ActionParsnipchalu: the files are in the wubi folder in the root of your windows partition11:43
chalulet me try it11:43
ActionParsnipgp5st: just checkin11:43
ActionParsnipgp5st: why not use:    sudo tail -f /var/log/apache2/example.com/access.log | egrep -v 'favicon.ico|zite.com'11:44
chaluok, I just saw a root.disk file that is about 32GB, guess thats the file ?11:45

chaluok, thanks frinott. I've mounted the windows partition already. I guess lo-mount root.disk is a command meant for my terminal ?11:51

chalusudo mount -o loop rook.disk /opt also failed with the same so such file / directory error12:04
frinottchalu: use full paths, and dont use  /opt, create something in your home folder12:04
zetheroo1does anyone have experience with Nconf? I am trying to get the changes I made in Nconf to be reflected in the web interface of icinga ....12:05
DJoneschalu: Not sure if that was a typo, you've got rook.disk rather than root.disk12:05
ActionParsnipchalu: did you cd to the containing folder first?12:05
ActionParsnipchalu: use TAB to autocomplete file names12:05
chaluyes, am inside media/Acer/ubuntu/disks which contains the root.disk file12:06
ActionParsnipchalu: sudo mkdir /media/wubi; sudo mount -o loop ./root.disk /media/wubi12:06
ActionParsnipchalu: if you get no output, it worked12:07

MotherMGAHello, I have a weird issue with the character encoding and display of special characters in gnome-terminal. Basically, special characters are rendering a square with the utf-8 code in it, rather than not displaying at all. This is important because readline uses special characters \001 and \002 to block of untracked characters for prompt analysis. This only occurs in gnome-terminal; xterm is fine. Also, running screen inside gnome15:19

daftykinsjavier_: you can't do it like that, Windows likes to have two partitions (a 100MB one prior to the C:) so just let it create them in empty space itself16:37

ActionParsnipjavier_: leave unpartitioned space, it'll be ok. Not sure how this is Ubuntu related as you are installing WIndows16:38
javier_daftykins, so, I should just delete the partition (using gparted for instance) and tell the installer to use the free space...16:38

ActionParsnipjavier_: try in ##windows16:39

ActionParsnipjavier_: if you already have Ubutnu installed, you will need to put grub on the MBR as the Windows installer will blindly overwrite it16:39
sudarshanjavier_: before doing so just install boot repair in ubuntu. As after installing windows ubuntu will not work. You will have to use boor repair from live usb.16:40

Crindleoz_, I assume this is a recent occurrence and your installation was working at one time?17:37
Crindleor is this after a fresh install?17:37

netlarSome Distros are out to make a profit right? Does that not make them a pure GNU/Linux distro?17:38
Crindleoz_, ah okay. that makes sense. phpMyAdmin can be a pain in the butt sometimes17:39
Crindleit's done this silly thing for me before, where it didn't add a link into the web folder17:39
frinottnetlar: license determines free software status, not the price17:40
Crindleoz_, try accessing your web folder's root  and add a link17:40

ezra-sif not.. then your cconfig is screwed19:06

rebaryeah, but I tried apt-get update and it crached during that19:09
rebarbut ye, gonna try again19:09
_andyj_oh nevermind it is saving to a default location19:09
bkfitz_andyj_: I believe iptables itself is loaded automatically by ubuntu at startup, but it will resort back to the default rules... so you can either write a script to edit the rules and put that into an init script, or use a service like iptables-persistant which reads a file, overwrites the iptables rules, and is loaded on reboot by default19:10
bkfitzso I'll put the iptables-persistent in an init script and let it load the rules19:11
bkfitzonly prob is i don't know which file to put the rules in... differing opinions here... but the iptables-persistent site seems to indicate /etc/iptables/rules19:11
_andyj_well that script says to put them at /etc/iptables/rules19:13
_andyj_so iptables-save > /etc/iptables/rules19:13

_andyj_Oran: run ifconfig and check for an address not in 192.168.x.x, 172.16.x.x, 10.x.x.x19:19
llutzOran: on server "curl ifconfig.me", use the ip shown19:20

rektidehi. an /etc/init.d/ script uwsgi is failing to start. how can i get more information about it's failure?19:21
_andyj_Oran: did you start the ssh service?19:21
rektidei'd love to try to run whatever ubuntu's init script does, but it's a fucking insanely complicated script and i have no idea how to hack it to tell me what the frell it actually runs19:21
Orani installed it and restarted the server andyj_19:22
area51pilotWhen trying to browse a windows workgroup Im unable, respomse is failed to retrieve list from server, connection timed out.  Any ideas on how to correct ... Ive googled and tried many things and to no avail nothing works19:22

area51pilot<area51pilot> can ping local machines ... used to be able to see ... but now I cant .. this happens often sinc 12.04 ... currently on 13.0419:22
IdleOnerektide: No cursing in here please19:22
rektideIdleOne: help me and i go away19:23
_andyj_Oran: sudo service ssh restart  just to make sure it's running19:23
_andyj_Oran: if it is, you may need to allow ssh traffic through your firewall19:23
rektidei'm very curious whether this is uwsgi's overmechanization or whether ubuntu is to blame for this monstrosoity19:23
rektidefrelling frak-bolted contraption is not easy to debug19:23
rektidethere's more code in /etc/init.d/uwsgi than there is in most of the webapps it runs. :/19:24
_andyj_Oran: if you didn't change the default port and are using ufw.  you can use: sudo ufw allow ssh19:24
Oranandyj_ i made portforwardinbg from port 22 to the server19:24
Oranwhat is ufw?19:24
_andyj_Oran: default firewall wrapper for iptables19:25
Orani can tell u the names of the routers or where does this this ufw runs?19:25
_andyj_Oran: it's part of the default ubuntu server install19:26

arminok it's really like that - when doing an /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon start/stop, the permissions on /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json are being reset to transmission:transmission / 0600, i just double checked that.20:09

jkyleI installed the virtualenvwrapper package, but it didn't install the init scripts (at least from what I can see from dpkg -L output)20:12
arminsqrt7744: i stop the daemon, change the permissions on settings.json to my liking, i start the service and it changes that back.20:13
jkylepip puts virtualenvwrapper.sh into /usr/local/bin, can't find i tthough20:13
arminsqrt7744: and i would really like to know where that happens because it doesn't seem to occur in the init-script.20:13
sqrt7744armin, yes i understand. i had a similar problem, trying to remember how I changed it. what exactly do you want to do?20:13
sqrt7744armin, maybe you want to run the daemon as a different user?20:15
sqrt7744armin, if so, ust edit /etc/init/transmission-daemon.conf and on the line after kill timeout 30, add (without quotes) "setuid yourusername"20:16

wilee-nileesk1special, Works here in FF do you have any flash block running like noscript, and or the restricted extras installed?21:59
ubottuTo just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.21:59

whirlybirdhi, is there anyway to re-whitelist the panel in ubuntu 13.04. the recent update from yesterday broke the 13.04 whitelist patch.22:14
CelticswyndE: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.22:14
wilee-nileewhirlybird, whitelist patch?22:14
wilee-nileeCelticswynd, Run that command then the one I gave.22:14
Aprelfrinott: thanks, reading over rsync man page and will try it22:15
Celticswynddoes that command help with the dependency problems?22:15
whirlybirdwilee-nilee, yes there was a patch for 13.04 that renabled whitelisting of apps that didn't conform to the unity indicator requirements. and with yesterdays unity update that patch broke allowing only java, wine and unity applets22:16
wilee-nileeCelticswynd, seems you have broken a distro upgrade, if you are lucky the one I gave you will finish it, what you have done inbewtween I do not know, nor any dependecies problems you may have.22:16

wilee-nileeCelticswynd, For direct answers here we need actual accurate information.

TherapyI'm sittin on a pretty old machine: asus mn68plus motherboard, amd phenom II x2 560, nvidia geforce 9600 videocard. I am using a usb stick and tried to install 12.04 and 13.. huh dun remember versions of the system23:49
daftykinsTherapy: ubuntu 13.04?23:50
_UsUrPeR_Jeruvy: Hmm. ok, I can do that with addfaxmodem -s to set the rate. 9600 seems like a safe rate. These modems are rock solid when plugged directly in to a serial port, so I imagine this is a USB > Serial converter issue23:50
TherapyIt loads, I am able to select the language. When I try to install the system to a hard drive or run in without installaion (tried both), it starts doing something for a few seconds (too afst, cant read) and then my monitor just died, and the only option is to reboot23:50
Therapyyes, 13.0423:50
daftykinsTherapy: hmm, weird. does the system memtest ok?23:51
wpbogdanMy son donated 2 $ via paypal and I want my money back. Can I get a refund?23:51
failmasterwpbogdan, oh srsly?23:51
daftykinsfailmaster: don't feed the trolls23:51
wilee-nileewpbogdan, this is ubuntu support.23:52
wilee-nileenot paypal support23:52
Jeruvy_UsUrPeR_ likely, I have seen issues with certain hardware preffering certain types of USB/Serial but that I'm not nearly experienced enough with.23:52
Therapydaftykins: I have not ran it. Should I?23:52
=== alan_ is now known as Guest70264
wpbogdanI already reque23:52
wpbogdanI already requested a refund but I did not get it23:53
_UsUrPeR_Jeruvy: Do you have any recommendations toward a more suited irc channel on freenode?23:53
daftykinsTherapy: that and checking that your downloaded ISO was good might be a good idea23:53
daftykinswpbogdan: nobody here represents the company direct, so it's unlikely this is a wise approach to make to try and ask for refunds23:53
k1l_wpbogdan: this is not a paypal support23:53
wpbogdanHow can I contact the company?23:54
Jeruvy_UsUrPeR_ ##hardware could be a choice about the hardware device.23:54
daftykinswpbogdan: i have no idea, i'd imagine the website has some detail23:54
_UsUrPeR_Jeruvy: awesome. Thanks for the tip23:54
wpbogdanI just found this irc server on the site, nothing more.23:54
rreedThe funds are not dispersed to Canonical until after the funding period is over, if it succeeds. You would need to direct your inquiry to Paypal, or IndieGoGo. Paypal support should be able to process the refund.23:54
Therapydaftykins: Well, I've tried it with two different versions, and i've redownloaded / rewrote them to the stick twice, so they were fine, I guess. When running the test, what should I look on in the first place (or it will be obvious enough, like "Everything's fine" message)?23:55
wpbogdanWhat means "troll" ?23:55
rreedTrolling means riling people up intentionally.23:55
daftykinsTherapy: hmm. that's a fair point. if you know the flash drive is good you could try full formatting it and trying to put the OS on again - what did you use to write the ISO's to the USB?23:56
k1l_wpbogdan: if its about the ubuntu-edge crowdfunding talk  to indiegogo. the contacts are on the site.23:56
wpbogdanI already requested a refund on paypal 20 days ago but still didn't get a refund, I contacted them and they said to contact you.23:56
k1l_wpbogdan: this is a technical ubuntu support for the ubuntu operating system. not that what you are searching for. talk to indiegogo. its their business23:57
rreedwpbogdan, Canonical/Ubuntu has nothing to do with the funds as of yet as they have not been released/dispersed. If Paypal directed you to another party, contact IndieGoGo directly.23:57
wpbogdanOk thank you.23:58
Therapydaftykins: I've tried formatting / rewriting (although I could try with another flash drive). I use universal-usb-installer-9.3.9 to write the iso to the usb.23:58
rreedwpbogdan, http://support.indiegogo.com/entries/21081743-Refunds23:58
TherapyBut, huh, I guess the drive is fine it I manage to get to the language selection.23:58
daftykinsTherapy: that'd be worth a go, and the memtest, just to rule out a problem with the system. you've tried different USB ports too i suspect? one directly on the motherboard would be good23:59
