robert__daftykins: windows simply can't see the extra 1tb. linux can see it, but not as part of the same device as the rest of the disk. are you saying that machines built 5 or 6 years ago didn't have support for >2tb drives?00:04
daftykinsrobert__: i would definitely expect the win7 system to be able to see the whole disk as one volume. looked into BIOS updates?00:05
robert__daftykins: the bios on the thinkpad is up to date, but the dell might well not be. i'll check it out. that's a good idea. thanks.00:07

ubottuL-sama: There are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mint), kali-linux (#kali-linux), CrunchBang (support in #crunchbang), BackTrack (support in #backtrack-linux)00:19

mns2Hello. DeVeDe doesn't seem to scale video sizes down at all with lower bitrates for DVDs. Does anyone know of a more reliable DVD authoring tool? (preferably with a gui)00:28
styolHey there. I am performing some benchmarks against an Ubuntu 12.04 server that is load balancing requests using HAProxy and I'm having trouble identifying the source of connection resets being returned to the client during these high concurrency benchmarks. Any recommendations on where one might be able to start isolating the source of this issue or anything worth examining further?00:30
daftykins!server | styol00:32
ubottustyol: Ubuntu Server Edition is a release of Ubuntu designed especially for server environments, including a server specific !kernel and no !GUI.

wilee-nileemns2, Most videos are compressed already I believe.00:36
wilee-nileeIf I understand you here00:36
mns2okay but if you put it on a dvd it has to be encoded for dvd players right?00:37
wilee-nileemns2, Not sure.00:37
wilee-nileeI would it is already mns200:37
mns2When I put a 1 gb movie on a 4.7 gb dvd disk, it says there isn't enough space due to how long it is.00:37
mns2(can only fit 2 hrs)00:38
reisiomns2: it?00:38
wilee-nileemns2, You have dvd formatted as data? use nicks as well please00:38
reisiomns2: what format is this "1 gb movie"?00:38
zoidberg-win 3200:38
Jordan_Umns2: How are you "putting the movie" on the disk? mpeg2, the format used in Video DVDs, is a verry ineficient codec.00:38
mns2For the above example, Brasero00:39
wilee-nilee!who | mns2 makes things easier00:39
ubottumns2 makes things easier: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)00:39
rusty0101mns2, when you burn a video dvd, the video file is a mpeg2 video file. I storngly suspect that the 1 gig file you are starting with is either an mp4 or xvid file that is more compressed.00:39
Jordan_Umns2: Do you want to use this DVD in actual DVD players or just in other computers?00:39
mns2Actual DVD players.00:40
reisiothe only DVD you need is one that plays 'GET A MEDIA PC OR SMART TV' in a loop00:40
mns2And it's mp400:40
themanwithnofaceis there such a thing or way to make it so that if you enter a string into google and you don't like the results you click 'search' again and if google recognizes that it is the exact same string it adjusts the time in 'search tools'  to the last 5 years, or past year past 24 hours. etc. ?00:40
reisiomns2: whatever software you're using probably re-encodes to fit the space available exactly00:40
reisiomns2: you'd have to reduce the quality to get it smaller00:40
mns2That's the problem. DeVeDe manages to not re-encode correctly00:41
reisiothemanwithnoface: ?00:41
mns2It makes the resulting file too big.00:41
reisiomns2: well that's no surprise, DVD mastering is arcane00:41
reisioI wouldn't recommend it00:41
reisionot in 2013, not in 199500:41
Jordan_Umns2: It's not re-encoding correctly, it's simply re-encoding with the best compression you can get with mpeg2 (poor). How long is the actual video?00:41
rusty0101Alternatively you may be able to re-encode to dvd mpeg2 to a multi-layer dvd with capacities greater than 4.7 gig.00:41
Jordan_Umns2: Not re-encoding incorrectly I mean.00:42
mns2Trying to put two videos onto one dvd.00:42
reisiomns2: tell your software about both videos00:42
mns2DeVeDe has options for lowing resulting bitrate, but none of them do anything.00:42
mns2I did00:42
reisiowell like I said, it's a huge PITA00:42
reisioif you insist on wasting your time with this, try using tovid00:42
reisiomns2: with the -ffmpeg option00:43
themanwithnofacereisio:  like maybe a macro?  :<00:43
reisio(that is, with ffmpeg, not subtracting ffmpeg)00:43
mns2Please stop telling me to not do what I'm doing? This is for a friend who does not have a computer and is technology illiterate.00:43
reisiothemanwithnoface: ?00:43
reisiomns2: all the more reason to get them a smart device instead of spend time on a DVD00:44
dr_willisdevede has worked well for me in the past00:44
dr_willisjust don't try to fit 6 hours onto a DVD.    :)00:44
RealDrProxyOi! Anyone have good resources or advice for build an Ubuntu fork or derivative? I've been working with ubuntu-builder but it seems half-assed.00:44
ubottuInterested in remastering the Ubuntu !LiveCD or !Alternate installer? See: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallCDCustomization - Or use tools such as http://uck.sourceforge.net/ or http://linux.dell.com/wiki/index.php/DRU_Disc_Remastering_Utility00:45
reisioprobably take you six hours just to get a usable copy00:45
dr_willisRealDrProxy:  that's always been a bit of a rough area00:45
RealDrProxyThanks for the quick response guys.00:45
RealDrProxyThat kinda sucks. I guess I'll stick to ubuntu-builder as that is the only thing that isn't completely outdated.00:46
mns2I will look at ToVid. Thank you. :)00:46
RealDrProxyRemastersys gave me issues when I first tried to use it. I think it bricked the dev box I was working off of.00:46
reisioyou think you bricked?00:47
tauntaunCan't get rc script to trigger on boot. This is a cloud instance running at run level 2. Used the update-rc command. I've gotten this to work before; don't know why there's no joy today. Ideas?00:48
dr_willisi dident think ubuntu used runlevels like many distros.  use the upstart tools tauntaun . not the older sysv tools00:49
ubottuUpstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/00:50
ubottuIn Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.00:50
tauntaunok, thanks, I'll try it.00:50
RealDrProxyBricked the OS at least. Remastersys borked a few things so I just re-imaged it.00:50

xvicariousHey, I've had a little trouble in getting grub set up properly.  When I installed it said grub had failed.  So I booted from grub recovery and tried running boot-repair.  I think the problem is I have an EFI parition on my SSD, and by boot is on one of my two HHDs.  I have grub-efi installed, but I can't seem to get it to work.  It complains about unknown filesystem when it boots and goes to recovery.03:01

cartusiaI keep having some serious issues with my mouse cursor, I have already attempted to read askubuntu.com but nothing there is helpful in so far as this particular problem. Initially I thought that it might have been a Theming mouse cursor problem, and that was knocked off when I switched to different desktops. So right now I am not entirely sure where to take it from :( . Could it be because of some package that I installed? Or maybe so03:10
cartusiame settings I accidentally tweaked?03:10
lotuspsychjexvicarious: it might be usefull to pastebin your grub in chat here03:11

cartusiait doesnt show03:11
dr_willisyou mean its invisuble?03:11
cartusiaonly in a few spots does it show03:11
cartusiabut with all kde programs it does not show03:12
dr_willisare you goin gto tell us which spots.. or do we have to keep guessing and playing 20 questions03:12
cartusiasome Gnome GUI programs show a little03:12
cartusiawell its hard to describe because it is sometimes very specific.03:12
dr_willisso the mouse cursor is invisiable over ALL kde apps? and shows sometimes for gnome apps..  and only then in specific locations of such apps?03:13
cartusiathe mouse cursor on some other desktops works perfectly fine with the desktop like lxde I think (can't recall)03:13
xvicariouslotuspsychje: I don't quite understand what you're asking by pastebin'ing GRUB still...  the !grub2 didn't say much..03:13
cartusiayes its super weird :(03:13
dr_williscartusia:  you have tried making a new user and seen if it works properly for them?03:13
cartusiaso right now I am stuck using unity with pressing ctrl (and when I move the mouse it shows where the mouse cursor is at)03:14
cartusiahmmm haven't thought of that let me see about that.03:14
dr_willisdiffernt apps can use difernt mouse themes from what ive seen int he past. if the theme of files are gone/moved then it shows nothing.03:14
cartusiaohh I see03:15
dr_willisi elive you can use the xset command to set a specific mouse cursor also. (it might not have been  xset, but xsetroot, been years since ive ude that)03:15
xvicariouslotuspsychje: I'm just assuming this is what you want: http://pastebin.com/f6snbwEw03:16
cartusiaalright I am reading the man page for xset03:17
dr_willismight have been xsetroot03:19

kasadI just need a way out of this for now04:15
reisiowhat's the problem?04:15
kasadit has to be exact same system04:15
reisiowhy not just copy the existing system, then?04:16
kasadI can't it's remote and it's not possible atm04:16
kasadbut I have to get 8.04 LTS working together with specific plesk version (not my choice it's a request)04:17
tgm4883kasad, you could try just doing a symlink, but I think that your reasons for 8.04 may not be fully understood04:17
tgm4883wait, plesk?04:17
tgm4883as in, the web server control panel?04:18
kasadtgm4883: yes unfortunately, I don't get any say in the matter04:18
reisiokasad: why isn't it possible?04:18
reisioand if it's going to be possible later why not just wait04:18
tgm4883kasad, who are you doing this for, and tell them they are an idiot04:18
kasadreisio: because I do not have access to the machine atm04:19
tgm4883kasad, I would, under no circumstances, put an unsupported OS of any type on a public web server04:19
kasadtgm4883: symlink to what04:19
reisiokasad: how do you hope to have an exact replica without access04:19
tgm4883kasad, no, I'm not playing any part in you putting an unsupported web server on the internet04:19
kasadwhen I try to mount find cdrom I get " failed to retrieve the preconfiguration file, and it looks for file://cdrom/preseed/ubuntu-server.seed which is nowhere to be found on mounted drives04:20
kasadreisio: I have the list04:20
reisiokasad: list?04:21
droopi downloaded an rpm file for my printer drivers. the manager opened the file and now i have a folder. how can i install?04:21
kasadreisio: of os and services I need to set up04:21
kasadtgm4883: it isn't even going to be online afaik04:22
rypervenchekasad: What version of Plesk is this?04:22
tgm4883kasad, yea, I don't see why you need plesk for an offline web server....04:23
wilee-nileedroop, Ubuntu does not use rpm's are you sure you even need this?04:23
kasadlemme check04:23
kasadplesk 9.5.404:23
kasadtgm4883: I do not need it, I just need to make sure it's working as requested04:24
rypervenchekasad: That's still quite old. They're on 11.0.9, even higher than that.04:24
kasadit's to do with some intranet app that I know nothing about not I care to04:24
tgm4883kasad, the person that hired you knows this is an unsupported server?04:25
droopwilee-nilee: ya. i looked up the website and it has the linux drivers i need. i tried installing by just using ubuntu but it wont work. maybe im doing it wrong. i figured ill give it a try. It gives deb, rpm, or tar.gz04:25
kasadthey need to "salvage" something old and scary (it's scary for me as long as it involves plesk and ages old ubuntu)04:26
wilee-nileedroop, Have you seen if they are in the ubuntu repos by running the printer app?04:26
kasadI didn't had opportunity to take a look at application04:26
tgm4883kasad, sorry, I just want to make sure I understand this correctly. The person that hired you for this job (it's a contract i'm assuming), knows that the OS they want is unsupported, and hired someone that doesn't know what a symlink is to do this?04:26
wilee-nileedroop, A deb would be what you use.04:26
tgm4883this seems like a very very bad thing04:27
tgm4883oh, and also the cdrom on that computer is broke04:27
kasadtgm4883: yeap04:27
droopwilee-nilee:deb? ok. ill try both. the repos and then deb. thank you.04:27
tgm4883which I'm assuming this server is some repurposed desktop system sitting under someones desk04:27
tgm4883kasad, you don't happen to live in Oregon do you?04:28
kasadtgm4883: I know what a symlink is, but I don't have idea where/which is usb partition that I need to mount or symlink because I can't find anything related04:28
wilee-nileetgm4883, goes full Carnac. ;)04:28
kasadnope, other side of the planet more or less04:28
tgm4883kasad, ok good04:28

grimetonmr_lou: i guess it's when you use their java package - no idea05:51
ubottuTo just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin.

holsteinanonee: confirm if it is or not.. i like to use pavucontrol06:25
anoneethis time the sound indicator is greyed out, with an x mark06:25
holsteinanonee: that is "muted"06:25
anoneeOh my GOD!06:25
holsteinanonee: you could have muted with the keyboard by accident..06:25
anoneebut in the GNOME ALSA mixer I've unmuted it lol06:26
holsteinanonee: try using pavcontrol..06:26
anoneeI'll try Audacity with pulse now06:26
anoneeholstein what is pavcontrol? should I google that?06:26
holstein!info pavucontrol06:27
ubottupavucontrol (source: pavucontrol): PulseAudio Volume Control. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.0-1 (raring), package size 140 kB, installed size 953 kB06:27
holsteinanonee: assuming you are using pulse... i think its a "better" tool for most use cases06:27
holsteinwaterlite: use the #ubuntu-offtopic channel for chat..06:27
anoneeOkay :) but u know holstein I'm seriously thinking about installing another pulseaudio in order to get the equalizer, I really like to have a global equalizer and that dynamic bands quantity seems interesting...06:28
holsteinanonee: "installing another pulseaudio" makes no sense to me06:29
holsteinanonee: you can use an eq in a player, such as vlc06:29
sparklrcan anyone help me out? I cant log in to one of my encrypted user account?06:29
holsteinsparklr: details, please.... did you lose the password?06:29

Putz3000sparklr: yes I am.06:37

trust_i have a problem with my old laptop, i'am searching for a non pae version, i tried the ubuntu 13.04 12.10 12.04 an also tried the lubunto 12.10 all keep saying please use a kernel appropriate for your cpu, what version should i use for non pae cpu?06:38
Putz3000sparklr: no personal experience working around the encryption issue like you are having. have not yet found any other idea's yet either - sorry.06:38
sparklrPutz3000: ok thanks anyway06:39
darkelfjuggaloI am starting my own website, and I was recommended Apache MySQL and PHP install[s] to get me started, but i haven't a clue which exact packages I need? Using ubuntu 13.0406:39
wooya that keyring output doesn't have any fs partitions to look at06:39
grimetondarkelfjuggalo: apt-cache search is a good start06:39
grimetondarkelfjuggalo: apt-cache search apache06:39
sparklrwoo: but there is one user account which is encrypted06:40
woosparklr: the files are split right?06:40
Putz3000trust_: I could be wrong, but thought Ubuntu dropped PAE support from newer distro versions. Seems like you could install like 11.10 possibly and upgrade from it to 12.04 ok but not 100% sure. Also seems like you cant take it the rest of the way to 13.x but again, I could be wrong.06:40
sparklrwoo: i have no idea, i just select the encrypted option while installing06:40
darkelfjuggalodid that and there is a sh** load of packages06:41
woosparklr: live boot > apt-get install cryptkeeper > take shots at the passwd06:41
ubottuTo use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info06:41
sparklrwoo: i know the password and pass phrase06:42
trust_thank you putz300 i'll try it =)06:42
holsteinits the other way AFAIK.. only pae kernels in the later releases06:42
wooya the user directory should contain one small and one large file06:42

holsteintrust_: http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/06:50
holsteinsparklr: i personally dont deal with the overhead of user encryption like that anymore.. i would revert to my backups and not use it06:51
sparklrholstein: can you guide which all logs to check when the user is not able to log in? so that i find out what is the problem06:52
woosparklr: didn't try that one ok.  just install gentoo > emerge cryptkeeper > import keyfiles and #crunchbang out the passwd from old cracked shadow files06:52
holsteinsparklr: not really.. im not much of a "check the logs" guy.. i typically try the passwords in TTY to make sure i have it right, then, i blow out the user configs til it works06:52
trust_thank's a lot guys (linux makes me feel like a noob )06:53
wootrust_: noob saibot06:54
holsteintrust_: you should try and use 12.04 or 13.04.. not an EOL release06:54

wooApplesouce: can you crtl+alt+f2?07:00
holsteinbabinlonston1: no.. it doesnt "fix" anything.. it upgrades packages.. upgraded packages might be able to provide some support, but not likely07:00
ApplesouceWell now I'm on a Rescue-Disk with live-operating system, so I'm not sure, but I believe it didn't work because I already tried07:01
holsteinbabinlonston1: it wont hurt, asssuming, you have a driver support issue, to run 'sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade'.. i have had a kernel upgrade provide wifi support07:01
ApplesouceI'm sure it shouldn't have any Boot-Files because the HDD wasn't attached while installing Ubuntu07:01

holsteinbabinlonston1: doesnt matter what the hardware is.. and i could google that and not get eh *exact* chipsets..07:03
woocallinedu29: 2nd generation07:03
ApplesouceYes it shows the normal login screen of Ubuntu (it should normaly login by default) and then I type in my password and the screen turns black and back to login - same thing with guest session07:03
grimetonApplesouce: was your /home on the partition you resized?07:04
wooApplesouce: and you cant get a tty to proc?  are you sure?07:04
wooApplesouce: can you edit grub to boot init 1?07:04
holsteinanonee: i use jack for proaudio.. eq's and whatever.. im not really interested in eq's like that "on-the-fly" personally..07:04

woocallinedu29: bye07:05
grimetonApplesouce: hm, press ctrl+alt+f1 and try to logon as the user in the console and see if that works07:05
grimetonmaybe it gives you an error message at least07:05
ApplesouceIt didn't it shows just a black screen with a blinking cursor07:06
grimetonApplesouce: no login prompt?07:06
grimetonApplesouce: ctrl+alt+f2?07:06
anoneeholstein btw do u know something better than audacity for recording wave? stability issues here .. :(07:06
ApplesouceI'll do a Boot-Repair and try if it works afterwards, then I will try again to login via console07:07
Applesouceif it didn't work I come back :)07:07
grimetonanonee: use cat07:07
grimetonApplesouce: yeah try that ...07:07
wooApplesouce: you could also live boot and run fsck07:07
holsteinanonee: "recording wave" ?.. it doesnt matter what filetype you are tracking to.. in linux, ardour is the tool, but there is nothing wrong with audacity if JACK is overkill for you07:07
holstein!proaudio | anonee07:07
ubottuanonee: For information on professional audio tools in Ubuntu, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/ProAudioIntro07:07
ApplesouceI am on live-boot07:08
anoneethank you holstein I needed that07:08
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot07:08
anoneebecause i installed ardour recently but didn't become friends with it yet, and I think i need more info about JACK07:09

holsteinsparklr: did you try that suggestion?07:13
holsteinecryptfs-mount-private ... or the link i gave from a live CD?07:14
sparklrholstein: ecryptfs-mount-private asks for a passphrase. I enter the correct passphrase, still it gives an error07:15
holsteinsparklr: then, the passphrase is incorrect, or you are entering it incorrrectly, or the disk is damaged.. or file system is corrupt.. or something "bad"07:16
sparklrholstein: omg. No other way to recover the data now?07:16
holsteinsparklr: with the passphrase..07:17
sparklrholstein: passphrase is correct07:17
holsteinsparklr: encryption offers no backups though.. you have to do that seperately07:17
holsteinsparklr: if the passphrase were "correct", it would be working... or some other more serious issue is going on07:17
holsteinsparklr: how about from a live CD? with the suggestion from before? did that work?07:18
sparklrholstein: dont have a live CD. i look up for the link again07:18
holsteinsparklr: good luck. i have to run..07:19
sparklrholstein: thanks man!07:19

DrDigitalcant even get the damn live cd to boot now07:40
Grmlng90so if i google ubuntu install + nomodeset i should find a manual what to do ?07:41
grimetonApplesouce: you could boot into single user mode and check the logs for any kind of errors07:41
nowayrideApplesouce: late to the party, what is it doing?07:41
Grmlng90aha , great , the quest continues07:41
grimetonApplesouce: but i don't know any ubuntu-specific recovery procedure that could maybe help you07:41
Grmlng90well its definately more help here as in linux mint , i think i can finally make the choice between the 207:42
Applesoucenowayride: yesterday I resized a HDD that wasn't attached to Ubuntu where I installed it, so there shouldn't be any Boot-Files on it, then I sized it back and now I can't log in anymore07:42
DrDigitali got same issue i guess07:42
dr_willisGrmlng90:  i dont see much point to using mint at all.. and mints main support channel is not on the freenode network i belive its on spotchat07:42
DrDigitalhowever first time i went to install ubuntu on this system i had no problems at all?07:42
DrDigitalit booted right up, i just was a dumb ass and forgot to setup a swap parition07:42
Applesoucenowayride: It shows the normal login screen, but when I log in the screen turns black and it shows the login screen again (normaly it should login by default anyways)07:43
Grmlng90yup , i went there cause i had other issues with trying to install that (brother in law said me that mint was more windows like and thus better , but screw him)07:43
dr_willisDrDigital:  you can always add a swap file.  I dont even have a swap partion on my main system07:43
DrDigitalinstead of waiting for it to finish installing and downloading all the updates i thought it be faster if i just reboot and started over...07:43
DrDigitalnow its like 10 hours later and i still cant get the live cd to boot up and ask me if i want to try or install07:43
dr_willis'more windows like' would not be a good thing..  ;)07:43
DrDigitaland ive changed hard drives, data cables, redownloaded the ISO, burned new cds07:43
nowayrideApplesouce: Ooooooooooooh um, yeah the login stuff is borked. I forget exactly what causes that but try single or a recovery, sounds like passwd or PAM or something got messed up, but you'd have to check messages or syslog or whatever07:44
DrDigitalI'm not that great with ubuntu… I'm learning still and i didn't know that07:44
Grmlng90in interface / way of using he meant . Hey man , ive been using windows since 95 and nothing else , delivered years of support , even for bloody vista . Its scary in the dark you know :P07:44
dr_willisDrDigital:  you have a 2nd pc? to test out things on?07:44
Grmlng90anyway , thank you Council of the Great Ubuntu , the fellowship continues !07:44
DrDigitali got like 1007:44
DrDigitali know my CD is good, it boots other systems up fine07:45
Applesoucenowayride: How do I boot single or recovery?07:45
dr_willisDrDigital:  on a problem machine once.. i used a 2nd machine.. that  cd worked on.. did a 'full normal install' to a usb flash drive (8gb) then i booted that flash in  the problem pc. and imaged the usb onto its hard drive. thus cloning the usb install to the problem pc.   ;)07:45
dr_willisthen i repeated it for like 5 other machines i was working on also for people. ;)07:46
dr_willisbut that dosent answer why you are having such issue with that pc in the firsst place07:46
nowayrideApplesouce: when booting you need to hit grub.. it's um, hold shift (or if it's server just mash a and it'll hit the edit line)? Then edit the vmlinuz line to have single at the end07:47
nowayrideIt's easier to remember this stuff at the console :\07:47
ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode07:47
dr_willistext  mode is just like one step 'above' single user mode. ;)     thers also the 'rescue/recovery' mode07:48
nowayrideSo does anyone 1) know how to inject hostname into the kickstart without using %post (is it a different name? It's pulling kickseed) 2) any repercussions for setting a proxy cache for us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu to pull installer/apt-get stuff from? Granted these are throw aways and don't need to be up to date07:48

peter1210Can i create more than one extended partition on disk?07:53
streulmaand then my fonts are not good and a bit blurry on my Retina screen07:54
streulmathe problem is if I set on 1650px then it is ugly, on 2280px it is to high07:54
grimetonpeter1210: on the "common layouts": no07:54
Slartstreulma: there used to be some settings for font anti-aliasing.. "cleartype" kind of settings07:54
peter1210what is common layouts?07:55

peter1210i have one extended partition but i want to create one more07:56
wilee-nileepeter1210, Only one extended is allowed07:57
peter1210that's not good07:57
Slartpeter1210: can't you just extend the one you have?07:57
wilee-nileepeter1210, seems to work for everyone else. ;)07:57
peter1210partitions are not adjecent07:57
peter1210so i can't extend them07:58

ghostnik11Hi is there a program to block your IP address or to show a different IP address so that you can use a certain program07:59
peter1210i have some toshiba system volume partition which is primary07:59
peter1210i think to delete it07:59
grimetonghostnik11: iptables ...07:59
Slartghostnik11: I think a proxy is what you're looking for07:59
Slartghostnik11: changing your ip is like telling people you live at the north pole.. you might fool them but you won't get any mail they send08:00
ghostnik11grimeton: iptables? Slart: I am trying to change IP so I can make calls back to home using Google voice08:00
Slartghostnik11: and what's wrong with using the ip you have?08:01
grimetonghostnik11: you can change your ip to anything you want, but it won't help you, as long as you don't get it forwarded by the provider you're currently using08:01
Tex_NickSlart : great analogy ;-)08:01
kallebroranyone have a korean 1440p ips monitor here?08:01
ghostnik11Slart: well now I am in the states where me and my family live but will outside of the states and Google voice doesn't work outside usa08:02

crassghostnik11: proxy?08:03
=== andrex is now known as andrex|off
Tech-1ghostnik11,  thats cuz its nsa approved08:03
ghostnik11grimeton: so first I would have to find out if provider will allow me to show the different IP, yeah I won't know until in get there. Also skype isn't good on dial up speeds08:03
Slartghostnik11: then you need a proxy.. those come in different variations..free/cheap ones might not be that good, good ones usually cost money. Are you sure it's not just when you register you have to be in the us? I assume you've tried?08:04
crassghostnik11: and who says google voice doesn't work outside the US? I've used it many times08:04

NikPHow to add the account manual?08:27
Slarttinashe: if it's even possible with todays hardware08:28
Ace78Any other suggestions?08:28
grimetontinashe: giving more than one process the possibility to manage the same piece of hardware never really worked out in the pc world08:29
wilee-nileeGrmlng90, You want it in every boot?08:29
grimetontinashe: boot DOS and you get exactly that08:29
AmpelbeinAce78: In rescue mode, try "/usr/sbin/rsyslogd -f /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf" to check your configuration08:29
Grmlng90No , im just trying to install Ubuntu , i have this graphic card issue (ati radeon hd6800) so my screen starts flickering before i can even install Ubuntu08:29
Ace78Hm. /usr/sbin/rsyslogd was not found08:30
AmpelbeinAce78: If /var/log/syslog doesn't exist at all that could point to a problem with rsyslogd's config. Check the /var/log folder for older syslog files (syslog.1 etc)08:30
wilee-nileeGrmlng90, Have you looked at the ubuntu forums thread on nomodeset?08:30
Grmlng90so they suggested to select nomodeset in the 'install menu' after the grub , but i cant even get there as the screen starts flashing purple and white right after i select the 'install ubuntu' from grub08:30
tosateHi there! There's a configuration file on my server which is rewritten every night so that my changes are gone. I would like to monitor this file and find out by which program it gets rewritten. Is that possible?08:30
wilee-nileeGrmlng90, who suggests this, and use nicks.08:31
Grmlng90I have been reading this one http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=161313208:31
Jordan_Utosate: Which file?08:31
AmpelbeinAce78: What system are you running? What does "dpkg -l | grep syslog" show?08:31
Grmlng90so you got the title " How to enable kernel options on the livecd (before install)"08:31
grimetontosate: yes08:31
grimetontosate: look into inotify08:31
tinasheSlart: well, there are more and more cores for PCs, maybe updating the PC to 128bit for more registers...08:31
Grmlng90but that screen he shows on a picture in the thread , i cant even get there , as its flashing before that shows up (i think it tries to show this screen , but here is the graphic card issue already i guess=08:31
grimetontosate: but before you start digging deeper - check if the change time and the time of the nightly cron job match ...08:32
tinashegrimeton: does not have to be a super computer...08:32
streulmais Mir also supported already ?08:32
tosateJordan_U: It's a .qmail file which is rewritten by PLESK every night.08:32
wilee-nileeGrmlng90, You edit the kernel by hitting e for edit at the first gui.08:32
tosategrimeton: I can't find a matching cron job08:32
grimetontosate: then inotify is the way to go08:33
wilee-nileeGrmlng90, or hit f5 and choose it.08:33
Grmlng90So in the black and white screen where i can select 'try ubuntu first '  or 'install ubuntu ?08:33
wilee-nileeGrmlng90, yes08:33
Slarttinashe: I don't think we need more cores or registers... I think we need new hardware on the motherboard. This discussion is getting a bit offtopic though.. try asking in #ubuntu-offtopic instead08:33

AmpelbeinAce78: Did you install a different syslog daemon?08:35
Ace78Ampelbein: I seem to have system-log-daemon08:35
AmpelbeinAce78: Is there a reason you chose that one over rsyslog?08:36
Ace78Ampelbein: trying to install rsyslog I am asked to remove klogd and sysklogd08:36
tosategrimeton: I'll give it a try. Thank you!08:36
grimetontosate: look into the inotify-tools package08:37
AmpelbeinAce78: Well, yeah, rsyslog replaces those two and should be the default in Ubuntu.08:37
Ace78So am I supposed to install rsyslog instead?08:38
AmpelbeinAce78: That is what Ubuntu uses by default. Was that a fresh 12.04 install?08:38
Ace78I initially installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS from scratch08:39
Leverhow i update the command-not-found08:39

Grmlng90dammed ,09:25
Grmlng90but that awfull trippy blue lined screen was normal ?09:25
Grmlng90mm , interssting , it looked like my pc was having  a seizure09:26
[Gentoo]that might be something to do with the livecd, are you using a nvidia card?09:26
Grmlng90ATI radeon hd 6800 , i had to put the nomodeset line or i couldnt install09:27

harshadurahi all, im getting weird error while installing Kubuntu 12.04.2 LTS version.09:28
Grmlng90on the partition screen of ubuntu in the install , i choose for Boat loader , the same as where my windows boot loader is ?09:28
harshadura this is the error stacktrace: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5995519/09:29
harshadurabasically it says : some keyboard layout issue,09:29
pc_magasGrmlng90, then use USB live cd again to install the frub first09:29
pc_magasGrmlng90, I think it is a HUGE MIstake09:29
harshaduracan anyone help me, thanks09:29
[Gentoo]Grmlng90: you need to install it to the main drive, like /dev/sda09:30
Grmlng90owkay , enlighten me please , i try to do the best i can but its not an easy job09:30
[Gentoo]not sda109:30
[Gentoo]or whatever09:30
[Gentoo]because "sda" is basically a very small partition at the start for the bootloader09:30
Grmlng90ok i think i went wrong there09:31
grimeton"sda" is the whole hard drive09:31
grimetonand the stage 0 loader is put into the mbr there09:31
[Gentoo]yes but you install the bootloader to "sda" because it starts before the main partitions09:31
harshadurapc_magas: got a min09:31
Grmlng90so should i try to go back into the ubuntu setup and switch the boot loader to /dev/sda ?09:31
Grmlng90this is all very complicated for a simple guy like me09:32
grimetonGrmlng90: is windows still booting?09:32
[Gentoo]Grmlng90: im pretty sure it should be selected by default09:32
Grmlng90yup , windows still works fine (typing from there now)09:32
Grmlng90then i dont understand what i did wrong if it was defautl , i didnt change it .09:32
grimetonGrmlng90: what bootloader did you see when you tried to start windows?09:32
grimetonGrmlng90: or did windows just start?09:33
Grmlng90nothing special , it went straigth to windows09:33
Grmlng90just like nothing else was installed09:33
grimetonGrmlng90: then you didn't change the MBR09:33
grimetonGrmlng90: (if there still is one)09:33
Grmlng90mbr ?09:33
grimetonGrmlng90: the thing is: if you install grub to sda, it will change the mbr and then - if this fails - it won't even boot into windows09:33
Grmlng90(im asking my wife to bring her laptop so i can get into this IRC , while i try the process again on this pc)09:33
Grmlng90well everything is backup on external drives , and i just clean installed the windows so as long as i can reformat its ok to mess it up i guess (rather not but you know what i mean)09:34
=== daniel is now known as Guest26946
grimetonGrmlng90: yeah, so instead of booting from a cd/dvd and trying to repair the grub setup, I'd suggest you reinstall ubuntu and then let it write the grub stuff to the mbr of sda09:37
flichertest test09:37
Grmlng90ok thats me up here09:37
Grmlng90mbr = master bood record ?09:38
grimetonGrmlng90: yes09:38
AravindgeekGrmlng90: try supergrubdisk to boot to ubuntu and install grub2.09:39
Grmlng90allright , its not quiet clear yet to me (thanks a million anyway for helping a noob like me) , im going to try to reinstall , and when im at the partition screen ill ask if needed (flicher)09:39
flicherso that supergrubdisk , i could make a bootable usb , get into ubuntu and change the grub to grub 2 ?09:40
grimetonflicher: yeah, but in grmlng90's case it's "easier" to reinstall09:41
flicher(dvd drive is dead)09:41
indgrub install09:42
flicherbut if i start up from the ubuntu boot usb , it seems to be already grub2 ? or amm i wrong09:42
grimetonflicher: grub2 where?09:43
Aravindgeekflicher : i said install not to change . since grub2 is not properly installed09:43
deanrock0any idea what can i do if i get "conflicting gb hw usage nouveau vs EFI VGA removing generic driver" and pc freezes on boot?09:43
flicherblack and white screen i get , when it tries to boot from usb . Could be i am just getting messed up confused09:44
=== flicher is now known as Grmlinger90
Aravindgeekflicher : ubuntu disk or supergrubdisk09:46
Grmlinger90im just using the ubuntu iso , burned with unetbootin to usb drive09:46
Grmlinger9013.04 sry09:46
Grmlinger90(flicher is dead , its me now)09:47
Grmlinger90ok so Erase ubuntu and reinstall , or do i go to 'something else' ? I would like to be able to choose file format myself09:48
Aravindgeekfileformat= filesystem type ? if so choose something else09:48
Grmlinger90in something else it says now /dev/sda1 - 104mb windows 7 (loader) . While 'device for boot loader installation' is by default on /dev/sda09:49
Grmlinger90ubuntu itself is installed on a partition of my second HD , so /dev/sdb609:51
Grmlinger90/dev/sdb5 is 4gig swap (needed?)09:52
eduardodont know what channel to go with problem upgrading from 13.04 to 13.10... i got stuck in the middle of the upgrading process09:53
grimetonGrmlinger90: the idea is that on a reinstall the grub-scripts are better able to figure out what boot setup you have than some "outside" os09:53
grimetonGrmlinger90: just reinstall it the way you did before09:54
eduardoand dont know how to complete upgrading...09:54
blazemoreeduardo: can you run "sudo do-release-upgrade" from a terminal? If you get errors please put them on http://paste.ubuntu.com09:56
Grmlinger90so just to double check , current setup is /dev/sda = nothing /dev/sda1 NTFS  104mb windows 7 loader . /dev/sda2 = windows itself09:56
Grmlinger90/dev/sdb5 = swap (4gig) , /dev/sdb6 = ext4 Ubuntu , /Dev/sdb3 = NTFS (for data for all OS)09:56
Grmlinger90Boot loader /dev/sda09:57
DrDigitali installed debian, no problem09:57
Grmlinger90or should that be /dev/sda1 , where the windows boot loader is09:57
DrDigitalnow I'm running the ubuntu live cd… and its running as id expect it to09:57
eduardoblazemore it says havent found any new version09:58

sahil_<jrib> okey m trying...12:09
mintuserthis is on a mission-critical system and I dont have any extra computers to try it on12:09
jribmintuser: then your best course of action is to ask for support in your distro's support channel.  They know the distro.  We don't know mint; we don't know what changes mint makes.12:09
ShapeShifter499it will lockup and nothing but a hard reboot will work, not even the "Alt+SysRq+R+E+I+S+U+B" combo will work12:09
oupateddieShapeShifter499 I'm sitting with similar problem12:09

ShapeShifter499oupateddie, mine will just freeze and do nothing till I hard reboot it by holding down the power button12:12
jribmintuser: well I'm sorry you see it that way.  It just doesn't make sense to support derivatives here because we aren't aware of changes made.  The support channel for the derivative is the best place for users of that distro to get help.12:12

jribmintuser: the best place to look for known solutions to a bug is http://bugs.ubuntu.com (or maybe forums.ubuntu.com) since you can search historical data there.  If it's a common issue, then your best bet is to probably find the bug on launchpad for it12:15

vadiWhich wifi nic manufacturer is most ubuntu-friendly?12:33
TJ-kostas5: It is likely you're not tapping the Shift key at precisely the right moment. I find that, especially in VMs, I have to rapidly tap it from the moment the BIOS screen refreshes else I can easily miss it. Even then, it can take a few attempts!12:35
vltHello. I plugged in a USB drive (/dev/sdc in my case) and it got auto-mounted. I wanted to unmount it and clicked on the “eject” icons in nautilus. Now there’s no media found anymore on sdc. How to re-introduce it to the kernel?12:35
TJ-vadi: Any that has drivers as part of the mainline Linux kernel. Intel are good for that, but there are others too.12:36
vadiIntel, right. Thanks.12:36
TJ-vlt: Easiest is to dis/re-connect it12:36
vltTJ-: No physical access anymore :-(12:37
TJ-vlt: Alternatively you can manually mount the device if you know its device name (in /dev/)12:37
vltTJ-: Any udev magic?12:37
vltI know that it’s /dev/sdc but `blockdev --getsize /dev/sdc` gives me the "no media" error.12:37
TJ-vlt: OK, figure out its /dev/ name then do "sudo mount /dev/XXXXX /path/to/mount/point" - ensuring that /path/to/mount/point is a directory that exists12:37
TJ-vlt: The device is likely to contain a partition table; it'd be /dev/sdc1 or /dev/sdc2 ... try "ls -l /dev/sdc*"12:38
vltTJ-: I don’t even get a block size (and no partitions anymore) after clicking the eject icon. What exactly happened?12:38
vltTJ-: The kernel doesn’t know about any partitions on sdc12:38
TJ-vlt: If the hardware has been ejected you *might* be able to get it by doing "sudo udevadm trigger"12:39
vltTJ-: Thanks, I’ll try that.12:39
vltTJ-: No :-(   Nothing in dmesg, no new partitions or devices found.12:40
TJ-vlt: Another way is, if you know which kernel driver handles it *and* that driver is a module (not built in) *and* no other devices or processes have that kernel driver locked in memory, you might do it with "sudo modprobe -r <driver.ko> && sudo modprobe <driver.ko>" which removes and reloads the driver12:41
kostas5_sorry I got d/c might have missed your response, TJ-: I tried both tapping it down quickly and holding it down. Tried quite a few times, but doesn't work12:41
TJ-vlt: Also, check in the /sys/block/* hierarchy - there may be a node you can write to which will cause the kernel to rediscover it12:41
TJ-kostas5: Which version of Ubuntu is it? All recent versions use the Shift key... is it possible it has been disabled manually in the GRUB configuration?12:42
kostas5_TJ-: It's 12.4. Unlikely to have been disabled manually, this is a fresh install, was never able to boot it at all12:43
TJ-kostas5_: Weird; as far as I recall 12.04 uses GRUB2 so it will be shift key. Are you using a USB keyboard or the PC's inbuilt/PS2 port?12:44
TJ-kostas5_: If it's USB you likely have the PC's BIOS set to disable "Legacy USB" - that is needed for BIOS to read a USB device which is what GRUB needs12:44
boxmeinSo, further into investigation, reading http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2052124 and... I don't have any wl to modprobe12:44

vltTJ-: I know I could get into my car, drive there, and just pull and re-plug it. But …12:46
kostas5my apologies again (got a shite connection on top of the other problems). TJ-: It's 12.4. Unlikely to have been disabled manually, this is a fresh install, was never able to boot it at all12:47

kostas5How can I access the grub menu on 12.04? I tried holding down, tapping quickly etc the shift key but doesn't work. This is a fresh install, unlikely to have been disabled manually12:55
TJ-kostas5_: Weird; as far as I recall 12.04 uses GRUB2 so it will be shift key. Are you using a USB keyboard or the PC's inbuilt/PS2 port?12:58
TJ-kostas5_: If it's USB you likely have the PC's BIOS set to disable "Legacy USB" - that is needed for BIOS to read a USB device which is what GRUB needs12:58

kostas5_TJ-: The keyboard works fine, because I can enter the bios menu and change the settings using the keyboard13:14
kostas5_jonasrogert: I cannot do that because the laptop won't boot at all... I want to enter the grub menu because I want to fix the NVidia problem in the first place13:15
tadolksure, my monitor is not supported by linux or it doesn't have an EDID. So it's not working and I need help to write my own EDID or copy someone elses13:16
mojtabaHi, Does anybody know how can I monitor network usage of applications?13:17
TJ-kostas5_: Can you boot into a USB live install or something, and use that to fix the laptop (including sorting out the GRUB menu config) ?13:17
jonasrogert_kostas5_, can you get into a tty while it tries too boot? using ctrl+alt+f1?13:17
oupateddiecgtdk I'm back, have installed kernel 3.10.7 and no change. Machine still freezes up and it has no pattern to it. Can it be the xorg causing this13:18
kostas5_jonasrobert_: ctrl alt f1 doesn't work... I still get the black screen13:19
kostas5_TJ-: I have a live usb stick, It won't boot from it strangely enough (the stick is fine, worked to install 12.04, and on another machine too, have checked the bios settings to boot from the stick, nothing)13:20

Antarhow much lines exactly that head and tail output ?13:20
TJ-kostas5_: That is beginning to sound like a problem with the laptop itself! Too many things it isn't doing. When did you last spill coffee into the keyboard? :d13:20
jonasrogert_Antar, you can set the amount of lines too output with -n 20013:21
TJ-Cyrax: I have no idea, you'd need to search forums and such for others that have done it13:21
kostas5_TJ-: the laptop was absolutely fine until I installed 12.0413:21
kostas5_TJ-: didn't manage to boot since I installed 12.0413:21
TJ-kostas5_: Well something is weird. Have you done the last-gap thing and removed the battery for a minute or so?13:21
Antarjonasrogert_ hmm good13:21
TJ-kostas5_: Also, a BIOS reset to defaults is something I'd try after a battery removal13:22
kostas5_TJ-: been there done that, running on power cord without battery for days13:22
Antarjonasrogert_ is it an aliases ?13:22
kostas5_TJ-: have also reset the bios settings to default, nothing13:22
jonasrogert_Antar, no it is a parameter so you would do tail -n200 logfile13:22
jonasrogert_look in man tail13:22
Antarmm ok13:23
TJ-kostas5_: Well I'd concentrate on getting a bootable USB flash drive and ensuring that works with another PC, then come back to this one. If that fails, you've at least proved its something about the laptop itself13:23
mojtabaHi, Does anybody know how can I monitor network usage of applications?13:23
kostas5_TJ-: the bootable usb stick works well, I successfully used it to install 12.04 on another machine yesterday13:23
Antarjonasrogert_ are you Certified ?13:24
TJ-kostas5_: So there is something wrong with that laptop then. Have you confirmed that all the available BIOS options for enabling USB like "Legacy" and so forth, are enabled?13:24
jonasrogert_Antar, certified in what? ubuntu no13:25
Antarjonasrogert_ linux13:25
kostas5_TJ-: I have but let me try once more13:25
TJ-kostas5_: What make/model of laptop is it?13:25
kostas5_TJ-: Vaio VGN-NR31Z/S13:25
jonasrogert_Antar, no sorry13:25
Antarjonasrogert_ how did you know all of that ?13:26
TJ-kostas5_: OK13:26
jonasrogert_Antar, used it for a long time, looking at logs is pretty much my job :)13:26
Antarjonasrogert_ mmm great13:26
kostas5_TJ-: External drive boot: enabled, boot priority order: 1. USB flash.... nothing about legacy in the options13:26
Antarjonasrogert_ but getting certified is better13:27
kostas5_TJ-: anything else I should look for?13:27
jonasrogert_Antar, the best resource if you want to now what a command can do is executing 'man command'13:27
Antarand info13:27
Antarand --help13:27
TJ-kostas5_: Yeah I know; The Vaio's are quite locked down and basic. I had to hack the BIOS of the VGN-FE41Z I have to enable virtualisation on the CPU13:27
jonasrogert_Antar, i guess, have never thought of it13:27
jonasrogert_Antar, should look into it :), thanks for the recommendation!13:27
kostas5_TJ-: save and exit.... bios logo and then the infamous black screen with blinking underscore13:28
Antarjonasrogert_ Welcome13:28
mojtabaHi, Does anybody know how can I monitor network usage of applications?13:28
Antarjonasrogert_ you need to be RHCE or Linux +13:28
jonasrogert_Antar, kool i will look into it!13:29
Antarjonasrogert_ Yeah13:29
jonasrogert_mojtaba, i would look into netstat13:29
xkernelhow to create Ubuntu 13.04 image with rootstock?13:30
kostas5_anything else before I throw the laptop away?13:30
mojtabajonasrogert_: e.g. If you want to know how many bytes thunderbird has send and recieved, what would be the command with netstat?13:31
jonasrogert_mojtaba, im not sure acctually, try looking into man netstat13:33

Ampelbeinmojtaba: netstat is kinda the wrong tool for per-application statistics.13:37
chinno988Also anyone know of a 64bit version of skype?13:37
mojtabaAmpelbein: Thanks13:37
jonasrogert_Ampelbein, mojtaba, sorry for that :)13:37
kostas5_TJ-: that's right, black screen with blinking cursor13:40
kostas5_TJ-: I wasn't able to boot at all since installed 12.0413:40
TJ-kostas5_: So where's GRUB in all this? Unless you can tell me you're seeing GRUB's "Loading Linux..." line, then you have NO boot-loader installed. That black flashing cursor means that GRUB didn't install correctly. It got the MBR code but not the 2nd stage13:41
TJ-kostas5_: So in summary, you'll not be able to use Shift key since GRUB isn't running!13:41
TJ-kostas5_: So ... failed install... start all over again!13:41
mojtabaAmpelbein: I installed bandwidthd now, but how can I use it?13:41
kostas5_TJ-: according to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1743535 I need to enter the grub menu to fix the not booting problem (apparently a conflict with the old drivers of the nvidia card)13:41
TJ-kostas5_: I don't care about any article. That black flashing cursor tells me you have a broken install that can't even get to GRUB's second state13:42
TJ-kostas5_: re-install13:42
kostas5_TJ-: I agree that the install wasn't right... but can't reinstall it now... it won't run the live USB stick13:42
TJ-kostas5_: Fix the USB stick13:43
xkernelI'm running rootstock and getting this, what does it mean?  "Invalid Release file, no entry for main/binary-armel/Packages"13:43
piloneI just killed cairo dock in process and now my sound isn't working. Any ideas?13:43
kostas5_TJ-: the USB stick is fine... I used it yesterday to install 12.04 on another laptop13:43
ahalversonkostas5_: to install grub, boot from rescue mode and do "grub-install /dev/sdX", X being the letter for your hard drive13:43
TJ-kostas5_: But the laptop doesn't like ti13:43
kostas5_TJ-: can you sell me a live CD?13:44
TJ-ahalverson: Where's he going to get Rescue mode from? The PC has no working GRUB!13:44
ahalversontj:  on the cd13:44
TJ-kostas5_: what capacity is the USB device?13:44
kostas5_ahalverson: I cannot boot from rescue mode13:44
TJ-ahalverson: He can't boot from the USB live CD though, that's his double-problem!13:44
kostas5_TJ-: 8 giga13:44
piloneI just killed cairo dock in process and now my sound isn't working. Any ideas?13:44
ahalversonkostas_5: do you know how to make a liveCD?13:45
TJ-kostas5_: OK, so the USB capacity shouldn't be overwhelming the BIOS. Have you ensured you've set the boot order in BIOS to read the USB device before the hard disk. I suspect what is happening is the hard disk is taking priority13:45
kostas5_TJ-: yes, its 1 in the priority and have extrenal boot devices enabled13:46
TJ-kostas5_: Are you able, in BIOS, to change the order so the hard disk is last, or even totally disabled as a boot device?13:46
kostas5_ahalverson: I have a borrowed mac available, can I use it to make a live CD?13:46
ahalversonkostas5_: yes13:47
TJ-kostas5_: If it can write an ISO then yes13:47
kostas5_TJ-: I have this option indeed, I placed the HD last, didn't work. Let me try disabling it13:47
TJ-kostas5_: I've seen that happen a couple times on my VGN-FE41Z and the boot menu was to blame13:47
kostas5_TJ-: I have no idea if it can write an ISO, I am not mac proficient (and neither is my gf to whom the mac belongs to)13:47
ahalversonkostas5_: try this http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net/Pages/English/home.html13:48
kostas5_TJ-: let me try disabling the HD for a sec13:48
piloneI just killed cairo dock in process and now my sound isn't working. Any ideas?13:48
TJ-kostas5_: If you can't sort out the USB device booting soonish, I suggest you read up on burning a disc from OSX :)13:48
kostas5_TJ-: yes! removing the HD made it load into the live CD!13:49
TJ-kostas5_: Nice one!13:49
kostas5_TJ-: would you be able to guide me from here?13:49
TJ-kostas5_: Are you able to do a fresh clean install now?13:49
kostas5_TJ-: yes try or install ubuntu13:50
TJ-kostas5_: I shall be around for a while although maybe not active unless you ping me, I'm not glued to the PC this morning13:50
ahalversonkostas5_: now boot into the live disk, do CTL-ALT-F1, and type grub-install /dev/sda13:50
osubuntuhow can I make xmodmap settings permanent??13:51
TJ-ahalverson: That may not work, the hard disk might be sdb13:51
osubuntuI have know idead how to make xmodmap settings permanent.13:51
ahalversonTJ, kostas5_: or the hard drive you have ubutu on13:51
TJ-kostas5_:  You can try recovering GRUB but if that part failed I'd be inclined to do a clean fresh install to be sure that no other hidden parts are broken13:51
ahalversonTJ: good idea13:52
osubuntuwhy im asking is because I have to set up Right Alt -> Hangul every time when login13:52

ahalversonhadifarnoud: i dont know, may i suggest the ubuntu wiki13:54
ahalversonim looking it up right now13:54
TJ-kostas5: No, I'd boot to the live CD environment and then use the Install link from the desktop. That way, after the install completes, we can use the desktop live environment to verify that the install did go correctly, before you reboot it13:55
TJ-kostas5: And that also means if it goes wrong we can determine why and how to sort it out, before the reboot13:56

TJ-kostas5: Good luck... glad you mentioned that flashing cursor... I'd assumed you were having the machine start to boot but just couldn't intercept GRUB before it did so.13:57

streulmaI thought it was in dconf-editor...13:57

phillyjpurezen: either wait or no one knows; or else try posting on ubuntuforums16:21
KM0201purezen: well, symlinks, doesn't actually move them, it simply links them.. so if your goal is to physically move them from one partition to another... i don't think symlinks is what you want16:21

purezenKM0201, Hey..! I just want to move them to another partition (ext4).. to use with other installations..16:25
KM0201purezen: then just either use the terminal mv command or drag/drop16:25
purezenKM0201, Sure.. but I also want to make them the default locations whenever, those folders are accessed..16:27
KM0201that's fine, just mount the new partition under each linux distro.16:27
ForDummiesI'm about to try a 64-bit kernel, after about 20 years of 32-bit.  Any gotchas?  Must I clear out my dotfiles?16:27
SlartForDummies: you're doing a reinstall?16:28
purezenKM0201, Well, I have enabled the fstab entry  for the partition.. but I also want to set the locations for the Music, Downloads etc directories as well.. In that partition only..16:28
ForDummiesSlart: I'll install on a new partition.16:28
yetifootin ubuntu, if you type a program name that doesn't exist, it can recommend a package for you, is that correct?  if so, what is the name of that package that does this please?16:29
SlartForDummies: ah.. I don't think there should be any problems.. the only problems I've had is with proprietary software that's not open source.. electronic id, bank stuff etc16:29
jribyetifoot: command-not-found16:29
SlartForDummies: apart from that it has been smooth sailing for me16:29
yetifootjrib, thanks16:29
ForDummiesSlart: I have all that stuff on a Windows/Ubuntu laptop.  This is for my desktop16:30
SlartForDummies: then you should be just fine.. go ahead!16:30
ForDummiesSlart: the main thing I was worried about was dotfiles of 32-bit versions not working with the 64-bit ones.  If so, I'll need separate home directories.16:31
ForDummiesNormally, my /home is mounted, not on the root partition16:31
SlartForDummies: I've never heard of any problems with 32 and 64 bit systems sharing home directories.. but I haven't really heard many people switching between architectures like that.. I would guess you would run into more problems if you try installing a newer (or older) version of ubuntu because dot files might change16:32
karab44hello! I want to use OpenVZ but it seems Ubuntu 12.04 LTS kernel does not support it. My question is. How to make it works?16:33
ForDummiesSlart: thanks.  I think I'll install 12.04 then, because that's what it has now.  Then upgrade should be normal...16:33
SlartForDummies: myself I never share the entire home folder between systems.. I share my documents in a subfolder but I let each system have its own configurations16:34
SlartForDummies: but that's just me16:34
ForDummiesSlart: hmmm.  I can do that.  I'll probably try sharing first (with my usual good backups).16:35
karab44So how to compile a kernel with current configuration and new functionality?16:36
wilee-nileeForDummies, Some apps are 32 bit only firefox for example, so you can use the .configs at the least.16:36
karab44I want my server to be like it is but with this small change - openvz enabled.16:36

wilee-nileephillyj, Y0u can shorten the grub timeout, but be careful in not having access to it if needed.16:46

reisiotab updates?17:41
holsteinevilmarshmallow: its up to you and your needs.. i personally manually upgrade with "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"17:42
DJonesevilmarshmallow: They're different types of updates and what to install, Pre-released updates are ones that will normally be moved into the main repo's once they've been confirmed as not having problems, unsupported updates are exactly that, updates that have been issued but which don't have any support17:43
evilmarshmallowhi holstein thanks for your friendly time; if I run sudo apt-get upgrade it will take all that tabs updates.17:43
evilmarshmallowI just want security update, not more17:44
evilmarshmallowI will need all of that?17:44
holsteinevilmarshmallow: then select "security updates"17:44
DJonesevilmarshmallow: On my system, the default is for the first two to be ticked, the last two aren't ticked and don't get used17:45

evilmarshmallowSo guys, wilee-nilee, DJones, holstein ... In resume I just have to keep default selections ???18:03
mchaterit doesn't seem to be an actual kernel panic. plymouth upgraded during the apt-get upgrade, so I am think it's causing problems.18:04

lecterhello, how can I upgrade 10.10 to 13.4?18:11
kostkon!eol | lecter18:12
ubottulecter: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades18:12
kostkonlecter, 10.10 is eol so it's a little more complicated than just pressing the upgrade button. and a clean install is always a good option in such cases as yours18:13
Ampelbeinlecter: There is no direct path, you need to go 10.10 -> 11.04 -> 11.10 -> etc18:13
Jordan_Ulecter: For that old of a release, while you can still upgrade, it will probably be easier (and certainly be faster and use much less bandwidth) to just install fresh.18:13
lecterhow do upgrade to 11.0418:14
DJones!eolupgrade | lecter You can use the bots instructions to start with, but a clean install will probably be better,18:14
ubottulecter You can use the bots instructions to start with, but a clean install will probably be better,: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades18:14
kostkonlecter, 11.04 is eol too18:14
lecteryeah but I can climb the ladder back18:14
Ampelbeinlecter: Follow the link that ubottu gave you.18:14
lecterthat link only tell how to reach 10.418:16
wilee-nileelecter, Your best doing a fresh install that upgrade would take a long time and be prone to problems.18:17
lecterwill it require to reformat the partition its on?18:17
wilee-nileelecter, Only you know that, do you have room for another partition?18:20
wilee-nileelecter, the eol link tells you how to do the upgrade, personally I would not do it that way, you have to make a decision here, do you backup what you have and do a fresh, or risk the upgrade, I would do a clone first to be safe in case of failure.18:23
sauraedronhi, how do i check if my internet is connected or not through nmcli. I want a boolean val 0 or 118:23

ubottupfifo: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)18:28
reisio2012 Jun 23 22:42:26 <ubottu>To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » (this currently may cause problems with multiarch) - See also !automate18:29

Jordan_Ureisio: I think you meant for there to be a pipe in there.18:31
sauraedron**nmcli -t -f state nm status** works fine18:31
reisioJordan_U: no that's something else18:32
AmpelbeinJordan_U: Why do you think there should be a pipe?18:32

sauraedronAmpelbein: what if connection is activated? I mean what code?18:34
AmpelbeinJordan_U: It pings www.yahoo.com 3 times (-c 3), if the exit status is "0" (&&) it will grep and if that exits with "0" (&&) it will echo. No pipe needed.18:34
lectera full reinstall is long since i like having almost all graphic interface18:34
Ampelbeinsauraedron: If there is no error it will exit with exit status "0" like almost every other application on the planet.18:34

ubottuIf you use Netflix, there is an unofficial solution for using it in Ubuntu detailed in http://www.compholio.com/netflix-desktop/ - bug reports in https://bugs.launchpad.net/netflix-desktop18:35
reisiothat is a truly oddly worded factoid18:35
lecterand then I wanna install a VM on which ill install another distro18:35
Jordan_UAmpelbein: reisio: Means run "ping -c 3 www.yahoo.com" and redirect stderr to /dev/null, and don't redirect stdout at all, then run "grep -q '0% packet'" with grep reading from stdin, which is *not* the output of ping, but something else (probably the keyboard), then if the user happens to have entered '0% packet' at the keyboard, print "It works!". I don't think that's what is intended.18:36
reisioJordan_U: that's not what it means :)18:36
reisiosomeone already gave him the command to use nmcli though18:36

reisiokostkon: :)18:38
Jordan_Ureisio: Maybe you made a typo in your message that you didn't make in the terminal, but I just ran (copy and paste) your exact command in a terminal, and it waits for user input (and prints success if and only if you type a line containing "0% packet" ).18:39
reisioJordan_U: maybe you made a typo18:39
pfiforeisio, Jordan_U is right, your command is borked18:40
reisiopfifo: nope18:40
Jordan_Ureisio: Please, copy and paste from your own original message into a terminal. You could also confirm in #bash that my interpretation of what your command actually means is correct.18:40

CountryfiedLinuxwilee-nilee, I already decided on making my own distro. Why ain't it a good idea?18:57

HungryHungryPokenl287, lubuntu by a hair, but it's not that big of a deal18:58
wilee-nileeCountryfiedLinux, HD's can be hard to boot that way at times, and has no correlation to making your own distro18:58
HungryHungryPokeany program you run on it is probably going to be so heavy that it won't matter18:58
pfifonl287, well lubuntu, unless your talking about only installing ubuntu core and fluxbox18:58

marawan2kostkon, where is that speaker icon19:10
CountryfiedLinuxpfifo, Why not just roll it out as a distro? Its no different really. BTW I helped with fixing bad instructions in the Mate wiki repos for Ubuntu, so there's the points there.19:10
HungryHungryPokeCountryfiedLinux,  hmm... if you want to role your own distro, there should probably be a better channel. maybe ##linux , #distro, #debian (to base it on debian and such), etc. Not sure where exactly19:10

So I CTRL-ALT-F1'ed and now I'm in some kind of terminal.19:11

BluesKajDarkness_of_Time, read my post above ^20:09
Jeeves_Mosssasha__, depends on how much RAM you have20:09
wilee-nileesasha__, If you hibernate yes.20:09
pfifosasha__, in order to support suspend/resume you need atleast enough swap to hold all your physical memory, most people recommend double your ram, i recommend none what so ever, I like my computers to reboot when they run out of memory20:09
Darkness_of_TimeBluesKaj, so... the only way is to reboot and make these changes in the BIOS20:09

PoolShark_04:00.1 IDE interface: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88SE91A4 SATA 6Gb/s Controller (rev 11)21:21
daftykinsPoolShark_: no driver so you're seeing no disks i take it?21:22
PoolShark_although highpoint says support is native in linux21:22
PoolShark_I imagine there is not not a module for it in the precise distro21:22
PoolShark_but it would be nice to confirm :)21:22
daftykinsPoolShark_: so your install is on a separate motherboard attached disk and is fully updated and upgraded?21:24
daftykinsPoolShark_: has highpoint given a clue as to what module might provide it?21:25
PoolShark_just says "Native Linux Support"21:26
daftykinsPoolShark_: ok i got some info21:26
daftykinsPoolShark_: take a look at that, install dkms then there's a .tar.gz with driver .debs in21:26
daftykinsPoolShark_: if you're comfortable with what that involves go for it, otherwise let me know and i can assist21:27
PoolShark_this isn't a RocketRaid21:27
PoolShark_it's a Rocket21:27
daftykinsi see '620' though21:27
daftykinsprobably same thing21:27
PoolShark_the Rocket 620 and RocketRaid 620 are different products21:27
daftykinsoh right21:27
PoolShark_Rocket 620 is just an HBA with no RAID functionality and a different SATA controller21:27
PoolShark_the RocketRaid620 is an 88SE9123 or 9128 depending on vintage with native fakeraid functionality21:28

ttomis there a way to have persistent storage when booting live-cd from network (pxe)21:52
SteveBellyes, I tried installing ubuntu 13.04 a couple of month ago and had very slow boot times (8mins) as the regular boot. fell back to ubuntu 12.10 with boot times around 1;30-2mins. maybe the problem has already addressed but since I can't find any info on hardware compatibility about this netbook I wonder if it would be a good idea to give 13 another try. I really like the changes in ubuntu from 12 to 1321:53
MonkeyDustSteveBell  a couple of months, you say. maybe it was before the official release? when it was unstable?21:54
anoneedaftykins: it's working now, it's   /dev/sdc1   /mount/mydrive   ext4   defaults   0   021:54
anoneehowever, there was user,users,owner instead of defaults when it wasn't working, the question is: how on earth could the options ("Allow any user to mount the file system",  "Allow a user to mount and unmount the file system", and "The owner of the device can mount it") prevent an application from writting on the file system since this application is run as my user account?!21:54
SteveBellno it was officially released at that point21:54
daftykinsanonee: *shrug* :)21:54
MonkeyDustSteveBell  then try and see what it does now21:55
SteveBellMonkeyDust: so maybe I should wait for 2014 for 13.10 and LTS?21:55
anoneedaftykins lol21:55
Dr_willisanonee,  even if the user mounts the ext2/3/4 - the permissions On the files on the fileysstem could prevent the user from accessing the files.21:55
ttomSteveBell: i would advice using lubuntu on slower HW21:55
Dr_willisanonee,  just because the user mounts the ext4  - dosent make everything on th eext4 owned by them21:56
SteveBellttom ok will have a look21:56
ttomis there a way to increase the verbosity of casper through boot params?21:57
anoneeDr_willis, daftykins, you know what? I think the real question is: what are the defaults? I mean since when I replaced "users, user, owner" by "defaults" everything worked as it should, then what I may wanna know is "what are these defaults" and this I will have to read more about debian in order to know more about. agree?21:58
Sta1kerhello, what would be the best option to run a script on system startup? my scenario goes like this i have made an encrypted volume using trucrypt and opensc i would like to write a script the makes sure that the card is in the reader and everytime i take it out or in it would auto mount or dismount. what would be the best option, running a system v script or making a script when lightdm logs in? is there lightdmrc?21:59
holsteinanonee: re: your question about latency.. i wouldnt bother with the lowlatency kernel, unless you are interested in lowering your latency21:59
anoneeholstein thank you very much for remembering, and it's now set to 256 milliseconds and I'm happy, but you know what I should have used linux a few years ago before ASIO4ALL for windows was written, that was when I was struggling with midi :D22:02
Dr_willisanonee,  the defaults for a ext2/3/4 would be the permissiopns on the filesystem. I do NOT think any of those options would override the permissions/ownership of the files on the filesystem22:02
Dr_willisanonee,  you are using a USB flash drive with ext4 as a removeable drive going from one pc to another? or what exactly? i missed theoriginal  question22:03
amireldoris there a way to install let's say `kubuntu-desktop` and later on removing it completly, returning to the original state with only-Unity (or LXDE in my case) installed?22:04
holsteinamireldor: yes22:05
Dr_willisamireldor,  its possible.. but not as easially done. since kuuntu-desktopis a meta package.22:05
doomlordanyone here know how to build compiz plugins..22:05
Dr_willisamireldor,  i just leave allthe *-desktops installed. ;)22:05
amireldorholstein, can you elaborate please?22:07
amireldorholstein, is there some way like `checkinstall` on make's?22:07
Dr_willisamireldor,    Installing kubuntu-desktop installs the meta package that pulls in dozens+ of other packages.. removeing them can be a pain. ;)  but possible22:08
ubottuIf you want to remove all !KDE and !Gnome packages and have a default !Xubuntu system follow the instructions here « http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purexfce »22:08
holsteinamireldor: ^^ for example..22:08
amireldorholstein, hmm ok, will read22:08
anoneeDr_willis ofcourse they're the permissions :) no it's not a USB it's a hard disk.. btw when I first formatted the volume everything seemed to fail until i used gparted, then  somebody helped me to chown that mount point dir from root to me, I left the drive for a couple of days just because I needed to add a dot in the end of the chown command,22:08
=== asus is now known as Guest8287
amireldorDr_willis, yeah I know it's a metapackage, thanks for the help22:09
holsteinamireldor: you can always manually keep track of what is being installed, and see that the pacakges are removed22:09
Dr_willisanonee,  dont forget you have to chown/chmod after its mounted. :)  seen a few people get confused about that and try to chown the mountpoint beofr the fs was mounted22:10
amireldorholstein, there's probably a way to get a list of packages in a meta-package22:10
holsteinamireldor: i run 'sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop', then i copy what is being installed to a text file.. i could name that "thingsTOremoveLATER.txt"22:11
Bjondholstein: cat /var/log/apt/history.log22:13
holsteinBjond: you want me to direct that to amireldor ? i save the text file.. otherwise, go ahead and share that with the person asking the question.. thanks!22:14
kevlar555Hi folks!22:15
vadiIs it possible to pipe output to something that will highlight certain words for me? I don't want to use grep as that will eliminate other text.22:16
Dr_willisvadi,  check out 'colortail'22:18
Slartvadi: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7393906/highlight-text-similar-to-grep-but-dont-filter-out-text   lots of good suggestions there22:18
Dr_willisvadi,  theres also several similer tools.. they rely on regular expressions to colorize stuff22:18
vadi ty!22:19
=== derpinator is now known as Blacklite_
vadiWeird why they suggest grep, it wipes all lines it doesn't match on.22:20
SlartDr_willis: colortail looks nice.. never heard of it before22:21
Slartvadi: I think they either make grep match all lines (but just a small part) or make grep print out lines before and after the match22:21
Dr_willisi imagine with regular expressons you could make grep match all lines.. AND also do somthing to lines that match a differnt regular expression22:23
Sta1kerhello, what would be the best option to run a script on system startup? my scenario goes like this i have made an encrypted volume using trucrypt and opensc i would like to write a script the makes sure that the card is in the reader and everytime i take it out or in it would auto mount or dismount. what would be the best option, running a system v script or making a script when lightdm logs in? is there lightdmrc?22:24
vadiThat's more work than I'd like to do... and colortail doesn't work with a command line argument, requires a .conf file beforehand. I do wish there was a tool that let me just colorize something in the output.22:24
Dr_willis!find ack22:24

Dr_willis               seems easy vadi22:26
Sta1kerDr_willis: is it part of init or sysv?22:26
Dr_willislinuxliam,  set it where?22:26
Dr_willisSta1ker,  /etc/rc.local  is ran as part of the default init process.   which is UPSTART22:27
Dr_willisSta1ker,  sysv on ubuntu is actually Upstart  in the background just sort of emulateing sysv22:27
ubottuUpstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/22:27
linuxliamDr_willis: the time format on a default ubuntu is 24 hours not 12 i was wondering if there is a way to set it to 12 hour using the terminal22:28
Dr_willistime default where exactly? You mean the panel clock somewhere? I dont have ubuntu sitting here in front of me22:28
Sta1kerDr_willis: init is the main one, upstart is the second init process that supports multithreading m i right?22:28
Dr_willisSta1ker,  upsart replaces sysv.   so however they all go together. :) i rarely need to mess with the details22:29

aquaratit's an O-droid x23:30
aquarator odroid-x23:30
Random832dr_willis: no, a repurposed surface RT23:30
aquaratquad core 1.4GHz machine23:30
dr_willisgetting to be a lot of neat little arm-mini pcs out there.23:30
aquaratI've just ordered the odroid-xu23:30
aquaratthat's one of the new arm BIG.little cpus23:31
aquaratwhich is effectively an 8-core processor23:31
Random832http://www.hardkernel.com/renewal_2011/main.php - looks like a pi-like-object to me23:31
aquaratbut it switches between low power cores and high power cores depending on work load23:31
aquaratit's very similar to the pi, just with a lot more memory and with a lot more processing power23:31
aquarat...but obviously more costly23:32
Random832i was thinking of getting a pi to replace my aging "home server" computer23:32
dr_willishmm that odroid-xu looks like a Raspberry-pi on steroids.  ;)23:32
Random832how much does this thing cost23:32
aquaratI love pis23:32
dr_willisPi $35 odroid xu = $140 from what i just saw23:32
aquaratarm sbcs in general... there's awesome23:32
aquaratthere's also olimex...23:33
aquaratit all depends on what you're trying to achieve23:33
dr_willisBetter Mame Arcade  Machine! ;)23:33
aquaratmy home alarm system is driven by an olimex machine :P23:33
dr_willisBeen using Plex on Ubuntu - serveing videos to my Pi-Plex  raspberry pis. :)23:34
Random832[i run mostly IRC and various random command line stuff off a 1GHZ Athlon64 X223:34
dr_willismakes for a nice setup once you fnd a decent remote for the pis23:34
linuxliami remeber how to edit gconf strings via the terminal but i don’t remember the layout if the command23:34
aquaratlol Random83223:34
Random832and file serving / backups23:34
Random832with a massive external hard drive23:34
Random832well my primary computer is a laptop, which isn't conducive to either A) always-on things like IRC or B) attaching an external hard drive to23:35
aquaratI use a combination of different arm sbcs for different tasks... I use a Solidrun Cubox as a file server, it runs Ubuntu and mdadm on an a set of esata drives. It has a gbit ethernet link, so it's great for file serving23:35
dr_willisits always nice when you can replace a huge old desktop box with a little Pi. ;)23:36
Random832yeah it's basically an old desktop my parents were throwing away23:36
dr_willisi just have to get the wife trained to use Plex and XBMC now on the tvs so she can dump her other set top boxs23:36
Random832set up headless next to the TV (it can't output video to the TV for some reason even though the TV has vga-in)23:36
aquaratI feel a bit sad when I can't find a use for old desktop PCs... there was a time in my life when there was always place for an old machine23:37
dr_willisbeen cleaning out ones all weekend here from the garrage.23:37
dr_willisset up MAME for the grandkids on them. is about all i have done lately23:37
daftykinsaquarat: i know that pain :(23:37
=== Jan1337z is now known as jan1337zZz
aquaratwell I'm glad I'm not alone :P23:38
Random832do any of these pi-alikes have wi-fi?23:38
aquaratthe olimex boards do23:38
Random832i'd love to shove it in a corner and not have it take up an ethernet outlet23:38
aquaratnot all of them, but the A13 in particular does, it has 1 GHz dual core arm cpu on it23:38
aquaratwith vga output and a bucketload of gpios23:38
aquaratI have some of my pis running on the wifi network using small wifi usb dongles... they work reliably, provided they're close to the access Point23:39
Random832since my ATT router only has four ethernet ports - i've been making excuses not to set up the magic wifi box that the secondary [wireless, but doesn't work off of home wifi] DVR needs23:39
aquaratwhere close is < 20 meters23:39
aquaratI've cabled my home... I have gigabit ethernet everywhere :P23:40
aquaratI have 4gbit ethernet linking my desktop (upstairs) to my server (downstairs)23:40
aquaratspeed :(23:40
lauratikaeverytime i start ubuntu or login after lock screen resolution changes and adds a black strip on top of the screen or the bottom, then i have to set manually another resolution to have the screen work again, any iadea what can be the issue?23:40
holsteinlauratika: graphics driver support... an xorg.conf that is not "right"...23:41
=== Declevation- is now known as phewl
=== Nisstyre-laptop is now known as Nisstyre
lauratikaholstein: how can i change this?23:43
holsteinlauratika: you would need to test, to confirm what needs to be changed. and there is always an option that that is as good as it gets23:43
lauratikaso where i start?23:44
holsteinlauratika: ?23:44
lauratikaholstein: yeah, what can i do then?23:45
holsteinlauratika: do you have an xorg.conf? if not, then that is not the problem.. are the drivers available for you hardware?,, if so, try them23:45
cazandobitsHow I can remove all tool for universal acess (orca...)23:46
lauratikawhere should xorg.conf should be?23:47
ubottuThe X Window system is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart X, type 'sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm' on an ubuntu system. replace with kdm on Kubuntu. To fix screen resolution or other X problems: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution . Also see !xorgconf23:47
holsteincazandobits: i would use a package manager to remove packages.. whatever i am comfortable with23:48
ZIPYlauratika: !xorgconf23:48
ZIPY!xorgconf | lauratika23:49
ubottulauratika: The /etc/X11/xorg.conf file is deprecated, but sometimes may still be needed to pass values to specific drivers. Generic xorg.conf generation: http://ubottu.com/y/xorgconf - ATI/AMD ( fglrx driver ) specific: http://ubottu.com/y/atiamd - NVidia ( nvidia driver )specific: http://ubottu.com/y/nvidia man xorg.conf for file structure and syntax.23:49
cazandobitsI want to delete ubuntu software center23:56
kostkoncazandobits, why??23:56
cazandobitsI preffer synaptic and gdebi23:56
daftykinscazandobits: no point23:57
cazandobitsdaftykins, why?23:58
PocketDogthe software centre is hopeless. It takes forever to do anything23:58
daftykinscazandobits: it's not going to be large, taking up space...23:58
