histobrett2342: there is an extra / in there is that a typo or did you copy and paste?00:11
brett2342histo: no, that was a typo (not copy & paste)00:12

zipperI want to say use it with irssi00:15
zipperI downloaded the tor browser bundle00:16
wilee-nileezipper, never used irssi myself00:16
histozipper: tor browser bundle is not tor and has no terminal component that I'm aware of.00:16
histozipper: if you want to torify irssi that is another thing all together00:16
wilee-nileethe tor browser use the tor network00:16
zipperhisto: how exactly? When I run tor -v I get valid output so tor is installed?00:17
histozipper: most likely  so if you want to use it with a cli app just torify whatever00:17
zipperokay let me see the command is just << torify irssi >> ?00:18
xatr0zzipper: you could connect irssi to a port on localhost, and use a proxy to sent traffic on that port to the irc server you want00:18
xatr0zand torify is one way of doing it00:18
wilee-nileezipper, YOu had not mentioned as far as I saw any indication of irc through tor at least to me.00:18
xatr0zbut if you want privacy you arent finished yet00:18
xatr0zthere could be a lot of leaks of your ip addres or other information00:19
xatr0zzipper: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorifyHOWTO/irssi here are some methods, but if torify works for you and you just want to evade irc bans no problem00:19
zipperWell I got the following info from their install instructions.00:19
histozipper: typically and that has nothing to do with tor browser bundle00:19
zipper To use SOCKS directly (for instant messaging, Jabber, IRC, etc), you can point your application directly at Tor (localhost port 9050), but see this FAQ entry for why this may be dangerous. For applications that support neither SOCKS nor HTTP, take a look at torsocks or socat.00:19

ubottuzipper: Tor is a program to route connections through several servers for anonymity. It is in Ubuntu's repositories, but the Tor Project recommends using their Tor packages due to past issues with Ubuntu's.

aj_Hey folks, I have a couple questions regarding my graphics on xubuntu 13.04.  I have sandy bridge. when I do lspci -v and look under the VGA controller for the Intel GPU, it's listed and it says the kernel driver in use is the i915.  When I do lsmod, I see for video, it has two modules loaded -- i915, nouveau.  Same thing goes for drm, two modules - i915 and nouveau.  Is this normal?01:58
semitonesso if I make changes to /etc/network/interfaces, what's the command to make them take effect?02:00

nrogers64Hi guys, I have 12.04 on a laptop and wanted a quick/easy way to turn off the screen without closing the lid and without waiting for it to turn off by itself. I ended up using a simple shell script that sleeps for two seconds and then runs "xset dpms force off" and then I made a Unity taskbar icon (code: http://pastebin.com/gCrt3rgw). I used Terminal=true because with Terminal=false the icon only works once. Why does it only work 02:05
jribAcidRain2012: so just give their user permission on the directory with html; ubottu sent you the permissions page02:06
guest__anyone there?02:06
nrogers64guest__ Yes02:06

AcidRain2012ah, make it send again02:06
ubottuAcidRain2012: An explanation of what file permissions are and how they can be manipulated can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions02:06
Whiskey`WonkaAcidRain2012: you wont really beable to do that, ftp is insecure (plain text passwords). you should just use a https file interface02:07
wilee-nileeguest__, fedora has there own channel02:07
holsteinnrogers64: what errors do you get in the terminal if you run it?02:07
AcidRain2012Whiskey`Wonka, so what is the most up to date GUI secure method?02:07
guest__anyone know the reason why?02:07
jribAcidRain2012: you can just let them use sftp with, for example, winscp on windows02:07
guest__r/fedora ?02:07
ubottuOther !Linux distributions besides !Ubuntu include: Debian, Mepis (using !APT); RedHat, Fedora, SUSE, Mandriva (using !RPM); Gentoo, Slackware (using other packaging systems)02:07

AcidRain2012jrib, im gonna look up winscp. havent seen a windows logo in about 7 yrs now02:07
dumb_questionsok, ran the boot repair on my VM. I selected the correct disk and don't get an error now. Instsead it boots to a black screen with a single cursor and just hangs. Here's the URL: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6030935/02:08
jribAcidRain2012: I assumed you needed a windows client02:08
AcidRain2012jrib, i assume the world outside of me uses windows. lol02:08
wilee-nileeguest__, /j #fedora it is not supported here. ;)02:08
nrogers64holstein: I don't get an error. The thing I don't like about having Terminal=true is that even though the icon always works, it's kind of ugly having a blank terminal window open before the screen turns off. When Terminal=false, the icon still works, but only once. I'm guessing the terminal opened by the icon is still running in the background02:09
AcidRain2012Whiskey`Wonka, my needs are to allow certain users to ftp into /var/www/FOLDER and have full access/permissions. i also want to allow ALL users to have read permissions on all of my external hdds02:09
Whiskey`Wonkawow thats ...02:09
Whiskey`Wonkause FS2Web i think its caled02:09
holsteinnrogers64: sounds plausible.. you might look into some other way to issue that command.. a script the shortcut references02:10
AcidRain2012Whiskey`Wonka, now will that also allow ALL users to upload to a folder called 'Uploads' on all external hdds?02:10
nrogers64holstein: The script already is referencing a script. Exec=/home/nrogers64/Documents/monitor-off.sh02:10
nrogers64holstein: Sorry, I meant the *shortcut* already is referencing a script02:11
Whiskey`Wonkait has a lot of config options, last i used it it was just ot get files inhttp://www.macvendorlookup.com/to my smarttv that didnt like my dlna server02:11
Whiskey`Wonkasorry dumped the clipboard02:11
AcidRain2012Whiskey`Wonka, yea im reading about it. not sure i like that method. im going to do more research on sftp and see what type of gui clients we have02:12
holsteinnrogers64: i think the answer will be in what error you are getting in the terminal when running the command.. if there is none, then the shortcut is the issue.. and the run in terminal option may be the "best" way to deal with it02:12
nrogers64holstein: Yeah, there is no error02:12
Whiskey`Wonkayou will not be happy with sftp, mostly cause it has crap clients on phones02:13
nrogers64holstein: I guess I was basically just wondering if I was doing something wrong. I guess not, though, so I'll leave it the way it is. It's ugly, but it works02:13
holsteinnrogers64: no error message? or no problem at all?02:13
dumb_questionswilee-nilee, Dr_willis: did you see the URL?02:13

nrogers64holstein: Manually running "xset dpms force off" in a termal window works just fine. It turns the monitor off and doesn't have any errors. Clicking on the taskbar icon that I made for the script also works, but with Terminal=false, it only works once. If I wake the monitor back up and then click the icon again, nothing happens02:15

dumb_questionsdr_willis: yeah. In this case they're overly paranoid and it's a business server. They want to feel like they're as protected as possible. Still, they bought a consumer machine to use as the server. Sometimes I just don't get it.02:32
wilee-nilee{bosco}, You probably have to go through the sound settings to see if you are set up correctly.02:33
{bosco}wilee-nilee: i have already went through alsamixer and nothing wrong there02:33
dumb_questionsdr_willis: sorry I'm new to this. I can't set any boot settings on this install. This does not work: To set kernel boot options, you must edit your grub configuration. You can do this temporarily for a single boot by entering the grub menu. If you do not get to see the grub boot menu after the bios automatically, you may have to press SHIFT key after the bios logo to get in to grub:02:34
wilee-nilee{bosco}, not the alsa mixer but the sound settings gui I have a logitech I forget what I had to do, as far as skype its not the best in linux generally, I always used windows.02:35
Dr_willisdumb_questions,  if grub is hidden Hold shift to edit the options. or boot into the os and unhide it by default and edit /etc/default/grub as needed normally.02:35
Dr_willisdumb_questions,  so DO you see a grub menu  with or without holding shift?02:36
dumb_questionsdr_willis: I did as those instrcutions say and held shift. no difference at all. I'm not sure what you mean to boot into the OS and unhide it -- machine doesn't boot at all, taht's my problem. I could boot from a live CD, would that do it?02:36
wilee-nileedumb_questions, The script showed no grub bootloader in the mbr, and an error trying to put it there.02:37

dumb_questionswilee-nilee: Trying to learn this. Where do you see that and what do I do to fix it?02:37
Dr_willisdumb_questions,  virtualbox? hmm..  so this is a image of a real system you are trying to boot in vbox?02:38
dumb_questionswilee-nilee: I see the error at the top (line 4) but don't kow what I do..02:38
dumb_questionsdr_willis: yes.02:38
wilee-nileedumb_questions, Top of the script starts with saying what the mbr has, its empty, at the end of the script is the run fixes.02:38
dumb_questionsdr_willis: seemed like the best way to be sure a backup is working02:39

Dr_willisdumb_questions,  and its best to avoid webmin.02:42

wilee-nileedumb_questions, Not sure to be honest, when I read that tar instructions it looked like something I would not even attempt personally, since there are easier ways, and could easily be run without a complete understanding.02:42
Dr_willisdumb_questions,  boot a ubuntu iso or a boot-repair iso in the vm and try the boot-repair tool inside the vm to setup a proper bootloader for the system02:43
dumb_questionswilee-nilee: I'm very interested. I have a Tar backup of the entire system. If you can get me a better way than those instruciotns, fantastic!02:43
Dr_willisdumb_questions,  clonezilla would be a lot easier way to backup a system.02:43
dumb_questionsdr_willis: that's what I did. I booted from a live CD ISO and ran it as root.02:44
wilee-nileedumb_questions, Dr_willis mentioned one as far as the system backup with a dd, I would have used clonezilla myself.02:44
dumb_questionsdr_Willis: agreed. However, they want multiple versions. ON a 2TB drive they can save months of backups.02:44
Dr_willisdumb_questions,  clonezilla i belive has features for that sort of suff02:45
wilee-nileedumb_questions, Problem as well is this a backup from a computer and not a vm you are trying to boot?02:45

delinquentmesshfs carl@dopamine:/home/carl/www ~/www  ...  and getting a complaint from bash that fuse: bad mount point `/home/thrive/www': No such file or directory02:45
dumb_questionsI plan to change around the backup scheme soon, but for now this is what I have. They tar / and exclude a few items.02:46
delinquentmeI thought sshfs is supposed to make that dir when it establishes the connection02:46
Dr_willisdumb_questions,  so the UUID's for all the drives are totally different.   you will need to check fstab and the grub files  after booting that live cd i imagine02:46
wilee-nileedumb_questions, I will say though this is a very limited area for me, I know how to read that script quite well, however as it gets more complex Dr_willis is much more knowledgeable in any area I know for sure. ;)02:49
dumb_questionsdr_willis: and from those instructions I thought this was going to be relatively painless--- goes to show you..02:49
dumb_questionswilee-nilee: got me beat all-around. good catch on the failed script. I figured, "Heck, it's linux. I can just unpack the files, mount the drive, point to it and go." so much for that.02:50
wilee-nileewhen done right it basically is02:50
AcidRain2012where are the server logs for sshd located?02:51
Dr_willisIts the bootloader and configs you are having an issue with right nopw. not the OS02:51
dumb_questionsdr_willis, wilee-nilee: I'm booting from a live cd iso again and will see if I can't configure Grub manually using those instructions.02:51
wilee-nileedumb_questions, I like clonezilla it save the bootloader, a generally easy fix but seems to a bit harder in these circumstances.02:52
wilee-nileeyou might just need to chroot it yourself from the live cd02:52
dumb_questionswilee-nilee: I'll do more looking at clonezilla. Seems more efficient space-wise to use rdriff-backup that way I can store many months of backups without using much space.02:53

wilee-nileeice9, This Ethernet or wifi, just out of curiosity, and why is this important, not sure of an answer just curious.03:47
dumb_questionswilee-nilee, dr_willis: just ran boot-repair and it worked this time. rebooting...03:49
dumb_questionsand I have grub...03:51
wilee-nileeheh cool03:51
dumb_questionsof course it says the disks weren't properly unmounted (duh) and it's runnign a check.03:52
wilee-nileeholy fsck batman03:53
dumb_questionsand we're live. Thanks wilee-nilee and dr_willis03:54
dumb_questionsnow I can see how corrupted their mysql databases are using this method (they don't shut down connections to them before they tar thewhole thing.03:55
wilee-nileeglad you got it figured out03:56
exportedso why do peoples ip's show on this server?03:56
wilee-nileeyou need a mask to block it03:57
dumb_questionswilee-nilee: glad you and dr_willis got it figured out. Thanks again.03:57
exportedi know you need a mask it just seems like it should already be masked right?03:57
wilee-nileeexported, I would ask in #freenode03:57
dumb_questionsbtw, the problem was I'm dumb. 64-bit guest OSes wouldn't boot because I had hardware virtualization off in teh bios. Doh.03:57
dumb_questionswilee-nilee: now looking ahead. how would you handle this? All is one one partition at this point. They use this server for shared documents and for SugarCRM (so php, mysql, apache). I want to plan for quick recovery should the whole place catch fire. So, should i have multiple partitions on the internal drive? Seems like that's obvious. Then I can choose to recover the entire contents or just04:01
dumb_questionsthe partitions holding applications and /or user files.04:01
AcidRain2012what if we recoded this channels conversations since it first started. line for line. then when someone asked a question, it would reply relevant lines in order to the users statements. and they had a conversation with a bot, made up of conversations weve had combine. good idea eh04:02
wilee-nileedumb_questions, I have never messed with a server I just clone my OS's on occasion to save time, I actually have everything off the computer on externals in general.04:02
dumb_questionsacitrain2012: sounds like Google mixed with a sales rep from a cable provider. I just threw up a little in my mouth.04:03
wilee-nileedumb_questions, But I save the sources.list and sources.list.d and the installed apps and any extra keys to do a fast install if needed.04:03
dumb_questionsthanks,wilee-nilee. Time for bed. Got a lot to learn. They're looking at moving to a hosted CMS and then they should move to a simple NAS methinks. At taht point they have less to worry about and might save a lot of money.04:04

james-ubcerr quick question, how do I get rid of the errros in a print out04:26
james-ubclike if I do df * but don't want all the cant read x errors04:26
eSoulHey guys, I am running an Ubuntu 13.04 server box and I have a 2nd network card for my VirtualBox VMs.  Right now, I have to issue a "sudo ifconfig eth1 up" on boot to start the interface but I was wondering if there something something in /etc/network/interfaces I could put in to bring the interface up at boot.   It have no network configuration on it at all, just looking to "turn-on" the04:28
Dr_willisthe thing to rember is that the * is expanded by the shell. not the app.  if theres lines you dont want, use grep to filter them out.04:28
pvl1james-ubc: u mean like grep -v ?04:29
james-ubcbad example but say04:31
james-ubcI wanted to do something like du -hs * but don't want the errors showing up04:31

wilee-nileeguest-fP2wi8, This is a knock out the variables situation basically, could be hardware, software...etc.08:21
ziadingoi am istall apache php but does'nt work htaccess08:22
PapaSierraikonia: php5-fpm has nothing to do with apache08:22
ikoniaPapaSierra it's a module loaded by apache08:22
guest-fP2wi8wilee-nilee, I suppose it's just a configuration that got messed up08:22
starnixHello people!08:22
wilee-nileeguest-fP2wi8, possibly the log may have some info.08:23
guest-fP2wi8wilee-nilee, I was working with fonts, I've tried moving .fonts to .fonts.bak already08:23
PapaSierraikonia: i've only ever run servers with nginx and php-fpm. there is no apache whatsoever in the picture08:23
traviscIs there someone here that wouldn't mind answering a few questions about Ubuntu installation, regarding using the lvm and full disk encryption?  I have two hard drives but I want them both to be encrypted as one logical volume, but i think this goes beyond what the auto installer is capable of.  I don't need to be spoon fed, just want to know if it is possible and like a general idea of were to look in the man to learn and figure it out.08:23
wilee-nileeguest-fP2wi8, Ah, the plot thickens.08:23
ikoniaPapaSierra: are you currently running it on nginx now ?08:23
starnixWhy I can't see gedit, preferences in my edit tab? Can somebody help?08:23
guest-fP2wi8wilee-nilee, xD08:23
wilee-nileestarnix, In gedit edit08:24
PapaSierraikonia: they are two completely separate things. but yes, nginx is connecting to the php5-fpm service08:24
wilee-nileestarnix, Hmm not there?08:24
ikoniaPapaSierra ok, so you're actually trying to run it standalone rather than through the web server, correct ?08:24
starnixwilee-nilee, yep its not there!08:24
wilee-nileestarnix, You in your regular account?08:25
PapaSierraikonia: well yeah, i think so. i.e. it can start and stop and the webserver can do so independently08:25
ikoniaPapaSierra: , so yes you're trying to run it externally rather than as part of the web server08:25
imdeaHi, I have an app that would like to start up at boot time, but I don't know if it's the same procedure (and script type than in Debian for example) or if it's different since Ubuntu uses upstart instead of sysv-init08:25
ikoniaPapaSierra: ok, so in that case, you need to know if there is an init script provided for it in the package, or if you need to wrap it in a startup script your self08:26
starnixwha does it mean by regular account, wilee-nilee ? I have only one user account on this laptop.08:26
PapaSierraikonia: here's the full story. i was on 12.04 and it installed php 5.3.10 which segfaults every few hours. so i want to install > 5.3.10. i installed 5.4 and it refused to start (using dotdeb ppa)08:26
ikoniaPapaSierra: how did you install php 5.4 ?08:27
wilee-nileestarnix, Thats the one, just guessing maybe a guest account with limitations, never seen this.08:27
PapaSierraso now i changed the server to raring hoping it has newer php packages08:27
ikoniaPapaSierra: 5.4 is not in 12.0408:27
ikoniaahh you used a PPA08:27
ikoniasorry, missed that in my initial read08:27
starnixwilee-nilee, okay, its gnome 3.8 it that help!!08:27
ikoniaPapaSierra: so what is your current OS version ?08:27
ikoniajust to clarify08:27
guest-fP2wi8wilee-nilee, found no crash report in Xorg.log08:27
PapaSierraikonia: exactly. that's why i used the dotdeb ppa. anyway, that's all history now because threw away that server and now i have a raring server08:27
guest-fP2wi8wilee-nilee, and apport.log is empty08:27
wilee-nileestarnix, That may be the problem , this from a ppa, what release are you running?08:28
ikoniaPapaSierra: ok, so now you need to look if the package you've installed provided an init/upstart script - or if you have to wrap it your self.08:28
starnixwilee-nilee, 13.0408:28
wilee-nileestarnix, YOu might install leafpad and see if it works08:28
PapaSierraikonia: funny thing is it always using to provide a init script on 12.04, but it seems to have lost that functionality. and i'm not experienced enough to know how to provide one08:29
wilee-nileestarnix, 3.8 is from a ppa though.08:29
nowayrideEr PapaSierra did you apt-get install php5-fpm? Because service php5-fpm restart works on 12.04 server08:29
wilee-nileeits in 13.1008:29
PapaSierranowayride: apt-get install --yes php5-fpm php5-mysql php5-curl php5-cli php5-mcrypt php5-gd php-apc08:30
nowayrideShould be a script in /etc/init.d/php5-fpm08:30
ikoniaPapaSierra: lets check something stupid, ls -la /etc/init.d/php5-fpm08:30
PapaSierrabut we're on 13.04 not 1208:30
ikoniaI don't expect that to be there though08:30
starnixwilee-nilee,  yeah its from ppa, what is leafpad?08:30
PapaSierraikonia: no, it's not there08:30
imdeaanyone? :S08:30
ikoniaPapaSierra: ok, that's actually not a bad thing08:30
PapaSierranor is nginx which i also need as a server08:30
wilee-nileestarnix, a even better text app08:30
ikoniaimdea: saying anyone is pointless08:30
ikoniaPapaSierra: no, it's probably upstart jobs now08:30
nowayridePapaSierra: ls /etc/init.d/php5-fpm doesn't show anything?08:31
theadminWhat's the Ubuntu update policy for Chromium? It's stuck on 28.x for now, is it intended or is an upgrade just being delayed?08:31
imdeaikonia: what?08:31
PapaSierranowayride: correct, the instal didn't create it, nor nginx08:31
ikoniaimdea: saying anyone is pointless08:31
ikonianowayride: it shouldn't contain an init script any more08:31
imdeaikonia: I don't know what do you mean.08:31
ikoniaas in old system V init08:31
PapaSierraikonia: ok, i literally know nothing about upstart. except it's an event based service manager (i think)08:31
starnixwilee-nilee, is it customizable? like color schemes fonts hilightmode etc..?08:31
PapaSierraso how would i get started?08:32
ikoniaimdea: saying "anyone" to the chanel, is pointless, as it means nothing to anyone08:32
ikoniaPapaSierra: so we need to first check if an upstart job is provided, hopefully it will be08:32
PapaSierrahow would i do that?08:32
imdeaikonia: wtf? and how am I supposed to ask then?08:32
theadminimdea: You just ask the question and wait for a reply.08:32
wilee-nileestarnix, I don't remember you can install it and remove it, you wanted a preference I thought checking if leafpad has its might be prudent.08:32
ikoniaimdea: you ask a question, then wait for a response.08:32
imdeatheadmin: that was what I did.08:32
ikoniaPapaSierra: initctl list08:33
ikoniaimdea: yes, and 5 minutes later saying "anyone" means nothing to people.08:33
imdeaikonia, whatever..08:33

reisioAshael: you could try it09:57
Ashaelwait, is it supposed to ask for a root password?09:57
yellabs-r2is there an nice tool to rebuild iso with just the dutch - nl locale ?09:57
reisioAshael: it's probably supposed to ask for some password09:57
Ashaelhm ok09:57
Ashaelwill give it a try09:57
theadminyellabs-r2: UCK may work. *may*. It fails randomly.09:57
theadminreisio: By default, recovery mode's root shell does not have a password prompt09:58
theadminreisio: Only does if you set a root password09:58
c2tarunnevermind guys, I found it. /usr/share/icons09:58
reisiotheadmin: :/09:58
theadminreisio: ...or if you have disk encryption, but then it phrases it differently09:59
yellabs-r2ok i will check that out... thanks09:59
reisiotheadmin: so you're just given root, or?10:00
theadminreisio: Pretty much yes10:01
theadminreisio: To address potential security concerns: it's not insecure, anyone with physical access can get a root shell from, say, a LiveCD very esaily10:01

Guest50981Is there a real bugfree application to record voice from mic and desktop screen ?10:02
reisioGuest50981: hrmmmm10:02
reisioffmpeg is certainly the most reliable for screen recording that I've used10:02
reisioyou can probably grab the mic input with it, too10:03
Guest50981reisio,  ffmpeg is a codec i think10:03
reisioGuest50981: no :)10:03
Guest50981reisio,  hm. is it GUI app10:03
=== Dave is now known as Guest64823
reisiowouldn't be surprised if there are GUI frontends for using it as a screencaster, though10:03
Guest50981reisio,  is there a GUI for it?10:03
theadminGuest50981: You can use Kazam. It's not based on FFMpeg, but it does the job really, really well10:04
theadminGuest50981: Can record from mic and from speakers, or both10:04
theadminGuest50981: Well and desktop10:04
Guest50981reisio,  i used recorditnow for ffmpeg, it doesnt keeps the ratio sequience of the audio and video.  theadmin10:04
reisiotheadmin: isn't it based on it?10:05
theadminreisio: Nah, uses GStreamer somehow but not ffmpeg10:05
reisiothat's probably just for the audio?10:06
theadminreisio: Yeah maybe :D It doesn't depend on ffmpeg though so10:06
Guest50981theadmin,  reisio  something tells me that you would not recommend the recorditnow with ffmpeg contrary to mos of others recommendations10:06
theadminGuest50981: Try kazam, really. Is good.10:06
Guest50981theadmin, ok10:07
reisiohttp://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/How%20to%20grab%20the%20desktop%20%28screen%29%20with%20FFmpeg audio too10:07
reisiotheadmin: hrmmm, does it depend on libav? :p10:07
reisioI don't know, you can make a GUI to an ffmpeg command in a few minutes10:08
theadminreisio: Nope :P10:08
reisiothe GUIs for screencasters tend to just be start buttons anyways10:08
reisionot even stop ones, as displaying those would clutter the screen10:08

Mancent I used rsync to copy /home/ to my USB a few days ago, now when I want to make a re-backup, how can I make rsync skip files that are already on the USB?10:30
reisioMancent: same rsync command you used before10:31
varunwhat can be the issue here10:31
ubuntivityI think both sides should reconsider: Canonical should purify Ubuntu, and Stallman should take a less agressive and more constructive approach..10:31
Mancentreisio: I used rsync /home/mancent /media/zrk10:31
varunreisio : is this an issue related to permissions10:31
reisioubuntivity: doubt that'll happen, Canonical is a for profit company itself10:31
reisiovarun: could be, seems a mere configuration issue10:31
Mancentreisio: if I do that again, it won't skip files, it'll keep writing the files again in a different folder.10:31
reisiovarun: something you could _try_ is create a new user, log in as that user, and see if networking works10:31
reisiovarun: if it does, that would imply a user-specific corruption or misconfiguration10:32
reisioas opposed to merely only-root working10:32

grahamsavageHi i switched to ubuntu about a month ago12:41
grahamsavageand google chrome12:41
grahamsavageis making me insane. it pauses, it freezes, it locks up.. pages take ages to paint12:41
Neroonusr13: Well, it seems to connect to the right wlan router (mac address) and it gets an ip address, yet not from my subnet.12:41
grahamsavagei switcht tabs, they go blank it crashes all the time.  I have uninstalled it, reinstalled it, removed all the plugins.  switched to the edge version.  Given that the web-browser is the absolute number one tool i use almost everyday what can i try to fix the problem12:42
usr13Neroon: Too many dhcp servers.12:42
MonkeyDustgrahamsavage  consider using chromium, not chrome, it's in the repos https://code.google.com/p/chromium/wiki/ChromiumBrowserVsGoogleChrome12:42
Neroonusr13: well, i only have one ;-)12:42
usr13grahamsavage: Do not use Enter key for punctuation.12:42
grahamsavagenote: i have two other computers one running osx and one running windows and chrome runs perfectly in both of those on the same network12:42
usr13Neroon: How then, are you receving bogus IP info?12:42
grahamsavageMonkeyDust: right, is there an advantage of chromium over chrome?12:43
usr13Neroon: At any rate, change it manually, to an IP that is within the subnet, set the default gw, and you should be good to go.12:43
MonkeyDustgrahamsavage  i havent tried chrome, best way would be to try it12:43
Neroonusr13: I don't know, i really don't. It seems to get an ip address from a dafault fritz-box address, yet i don't have one12:44
usr13Neroon: (To an *unused* IP that is within the subnet.)12:44

Neroonusr13: yes, wpa212:45
susundbergchoia: inside screen, just hit ctrl + a + c12:45
Neroonusr13: yet, how do i find out, whether the wlan card is capable of doing wpa2?12:45
susundbergor what screen you mean, screen like /usr/bin/screen -- ?12:45
usr13Neroon: Then first make sure the encryption is being handled, and you'll at that point, need to use a "network manager", like wicd or network-manager.  If you don't have one installed, then apt-get it.12:46
choiasusundberg: we are talking about the right screen :) i am looking for a way to automate my screen usage via ssh so i need a commandline option is it possible?12:46

usr13Neroon: Depends on *your* definition of sufficient.12:47
afiqwhat is it?12:47
usr13Neroon: Trun off encryption and try again.12:47
susundbergchoia: maybe -- dont know. See man-page. I usually do ssh <remote server> ... screen -r . But i you could optimize it to attach automatically if session is found12:47

choiaubuntivity: i also recomend curl12:50
ubuntivityI'm going to read "man curl", but before that, what is the main purpose of curl?12:51
susundbergchoia: sounds fun, cant help -- dont know enough, happy hacking12:51
Piciubuntivity: the first sentence of the manpage describs it.12:51
susundberg"curl is a client to get documents/files from or send documents to a server"12:51

susundberg!man curl12:51
choiaubuntivity: it's the same as wget.12:51

usr13ubuntivity: Well, there are only a couple of options, (and the URL man indicate which it is).12:58
susundbergubuntivity: well since its browser i would guess standard http protocol tricks but wireshark can certainly analyze all the trafic that gets trhough any interface12:58
choiasusundberg: if you are interested it's as follows: screen -x <session> -x -X screen <window name> <command>12:58
usr13*may* not man12:58
ubuntivitysusundberg: there was a commandline tool on which wireshark is based, I just don't recall its name :(12:59

ubuntivitysusundberg, owlbread: and is there an easy way to determine how does the browser authenticate my upload? will Tamper Data be enough?13:02

BadK1ttygirl walks into a room having an argument with an alien,... seriously using alien to convert .rpm to .deb for a package13:07
BadK1ttywise to activate the root account i've heard both sides to this just curious of your take on it13:08
ubottuBadK1tty,: 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/RootSudo13:08
* ubuntivity understood 0% of BadK1tty's statement..13:09
BadK1ttyi wanted to convert a rpm to deb13:09
ubottuBadK1tty,: RPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !dpkg, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)13:09
BadK1ttyso i went in search of how to the file said you have to be root to run the commands13:09
usr13BadK1tty: That is not the way it is done in Ubuntu. If you deviate, ok, but this is not the place to discuss why or how.13:09
ubuntivityBadK1tty: using "sudo" is almost the same as being root.13:10
usr13BadK1tty: That is what sudo is for.  Or, you you want an admin shell, su -i13:10
BadK1ttythats what i thought13:10
BadK1ttymy actual question was when i find these packages or how to's is it wise to activate the root account in ubuntu13:11
usr13BadK1tty: Ubuntu just has a simplier, easier / different way of handling admin tasks.13:11
BadK1ttyi get that13:11
BadK1ttywhy im using it13:11
usr13BadK1tty: su -i13:11
ubuntivityBadK1tty: it is generally not a good practice to use root account, use sudo instead.13:12
BadK1ttythank you for the response at least13:12
BadK1ttythat seems to be the consensus13:12
usr13BadK1tty: Sorry, it's sudo -i13:12
BadK1ttymay i ask why, just want to know if the reason works with what i've read13:12
usr13BadK1tty: super-user is there for you to use, it's just as easy, just different.13:13
ubuntivityUsually, performing changes to the system requires superuser permissions.13:13
BadK1ttyyeah like unlock, install, etc13:13
BadK1ttyeither way when i saw i had to be root to run the program i just used the apt-get remove it uninstall it13:14
usr13BadK1tty: you can read all sorts of opinions on which way is best but it is mostly philosophical.13:14
MonkeyDustBadK1tty  for anything that happens outside /home13:14
* ubuntivity +1 for MonkeyDust's statement13:14
quick-BadK1tty, It's not wise as if someonw is trying to access your maching lets hope remotely they will guess user as root and they just have to guess the password . As fasr as sudo and root are concerned both have almost same previleges . But if you don't have root activated they need to guess the username too. It;s just a simple example13:14
BadK1ttythats the one i read too13:15
BadK1ttydefinately security conscious13:15
usr13BadK1tty: Yea, so there is pleanty to be said in support of Ubuntu's way of handling admin functions.13:15
quick-BadK1tty, You have your answer :)13:16

missvaleskaEvery few days, Though, It just happened within a few hours right now.13:54
missvaleskaMy computer will disconnect from the wireless network, And keep asking me for the password, Even though it's right. Restarting it is the only thing I've found to work so far, Which is what I've just done.13:55
missvaleskaI'm trying to see if there is any more permanent fix to this, Whether it's a different driver, Or some setting. I'd be very grateful if you'd help.13:55

Nach0zit happened on opensuse too though13:56
Nach0zI never found a solution :/13:56
missvaleska:( I'm sorry13:56
Nach0zSOMETIMES stopping and restarting the network stuff in init.d would fix it13:56
missvaleskaHow do you do that?13:56
NK`where can i download certified version of ubuntu ?13:57
missvaleskaRestarting obviously clears, Or restarts some process, Some log, Some RAM thing. So I should be able to do that manually13:57
NK`i'm talking about certified one13:57
missvaleskaWhat do you mean?13:57
Nach0zmissvaleska:  sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager restart, I think13:57
missvaleskaThat is certified13:57
Nach0zNK`: what kind of certificate are you looking for?13:58
NK`ubuntu is providing specific version for some brand aka certified version13:58
NK`where can i download those ?13:58
missvaleskaI don't understand what you're talking about.13:58
NK`anyone from canonical here who would know that ?13:58
X-Useris there any way to instantly resize windows? i mean resizing it in like the way it is in windows or cinnamon de.13:58

Nach0zthere's nothing special about them14:01
X-UserNach0z, is there any tool available or any compiz tweak?14:01
missvaleskaIt wouldn't make any sense for anything like that to exist anyway.14:01
missvaleskaUbuntu works on everything pretty well.14:01

Nach0zmissvaleska: only thing I can think of is when it happens, try sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager restart14:03
NK`and I guess as they didn't answer my question to provide the change14:03
NK`I'll ask it again and cc rms@gnu.org14:03
Nach0zNK`: I'm looking at the dell certification page, and it says that the servers are certified for a specific version of Ubuntu, not that Ubuntu was changed to be certified on the servers14:04
Nach0zif you click on the individual hardware that you want, it provides a download link14:04

NK`Nach0z: i had a discussion with a girl from the canonical certification staff and she did state that the ubuntu certification "embedded version with laptop" for an exemple are indeed tweaked / patched so that everything run fine14:05
linuwhat does that mean ?14:06
robin0800NK`, if its a laptop they often have a wireless switch or key combination to enable it14:06
NK`that means they are providing specific drivers and sometimes did some patch on the linux kernel14:06
linuahh right14:06
linuso they are fucking linux14:06
linulike windows14:06
FloodBot1linu: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.14:06
linuits certified for ubuntu-only with specific special drivers for ubuntu not available for other linuxes14:07
NK`actually probably available14:07
NK`what is not available it the set of change14:07
Nach0zNK`: if you look at the right-hand side, there's a dropdown that says "Ubuntu image", if you select "pre-installed by manufacturer", you get a list of computers that come with the "manufacturer" version... you can download the individual image that's "certified" from there14:07

Nach0zNK`: what laptop are you using?14:12
NK`Nach0z: i do14:12
NK`and yes i did14:12
MonkeyDustNK`  what was your initial support question?14:12
NK`for an exemple on my laptop14:12
FelishiaI used to modify "bash_profile" but it just did the commands when starting terminal14:12
NK`i can't setup the lightness or i need to add acpi_backlight=vendor in my grub14:12
NK`if i do so14:12
NK`then my laptop sometimes freeze when getting into sleep mode14:13
MonkeyDustNK`  also: try to put your questuions/issues in one line, it's easier to read, follow and repeat14:13
NK`but the point is that canonical should provide the list of change they did anyway14:13
Nach0zNK`:  what laptop?14:14
NK`MonkeyDust: sorry i indeed do use too much the enter key. :)14:14
NK`Nach0z: mine is a dell inspiron 5521, but i'm pretty sure there are several others exemple14:14
Nach0zNK`: http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/hardware/201208-11540/components/14:16
NK`Nach0z: yes i was there14:17
Nach0zNK`: that appears to be a list of the different software components that they used to fine-tune ubuntu to work on your laptop. It's not download links but it's a start14:17
NK`do you see any link for an image download there ?14:17
SillvesterFeilishia: do you want to start a program , when you login?14:17
NK`well it's actually just a link of the component of the laptop indeed14:17
saki`this command will move all the files with .rdm extensions two subdirectories below the current one, yes? mv apc/*/*.rdm /home/new/14:18
PiciNK`: That page for that laptop says that it is preinstalled by the manufacturer, presumably the images should be available on their website as well.14:18
NK`so dell is wrong as well14:18
* Feldegast doesn't touch consumer grade dell14:19
cfhowlettNK`, I don't thank dell has ever made their ISO image available.  BUT there is a dell image builder too ... start with stock ubuntu, grab the dell git, make the iso ...14:19
NK`well yes that's still something. But they are still violating the GPL I guess14:21
beangood luck getting them to care14:21
Nach0zNK`: you might contact Dell and see if they can help you out. the problem is that once Dell kinda takes over and says "we're going to develop an image fine-tuned to our hardware", it makes it a bit harder for anyone else to help14:21
Feldegastin germany you could sue....14:22
Nach0zThat being said, the GPL covers only selling the software. if they provide the same system with a different OS for the same price, they can say that they're not selling the software and therefore aren't in any violation of the GPL14:22
FeldegastNach0z depends on how the gpl software is obtained14:23
NK`hm I don't think so. I think the gpl imply to provide any modification done in case the software is distributed14:23

qiu6524sideone: you can set a size limit when mounting a tmpfs.14:53
sideonenot a bad idea, i just built a 20gigger for squid cache, i havent formatted it yet. do i just specify tmpfs as a chunk of mem? or does it actually need some storage space? the thing is, i dont want it volaltile as the squid cache will need to stick around for some time14:54

jozzzef2I got disconnected15:58
thebwtare there any reccomendations for a php ppa? I'm trying to get newer version stuff for a 12.04 server15:58
neopsychejhutchins: possibly. but i deleted windows.. would exe work through wine? not sure if bios update is wise to do in wine?15:58

wilee-nileehardliner_, The channel works with you starting with the actual issue. ;)15:59
wilee-nileeneopsyche, Many bios updates have a bootable medium.16:00
jozzzef2wilee-nilee there is no option in BIOS to do anything special than to enter a new EFI boot path16:00
neopsychewilee-nilee: interesting16:00
BluesKajjozzzef2, have you seen this ? http://askubuntu.com/questions/91484/how-to-boot-ubuntu-from-efi-uefi16:00
neopsychewilee-nilee: I heard that most of the bios updates only fix the issue for a couple of weeks. (forums)16:01
wilee-nileejozzzef2, Not sure myself, never had that model, you might call the manufacturer, here is a link on uefi stuff in general though. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=214729516:02

neopsycheHi all..  i am wondering if my partitions are correct.. i have 50 gig in home and 20 gig  var  4.1gig swap and 50 gig filesystem16:06
ikonianeopsyche: what do you mean "correct" ?16:06
BluesKajneopsyche, how much ram ? your swap should be equal to or more , especially if it's a laptop16:07
neopsycheikonia: sorry, bit of a noob.. are those good sizes for optimal system ? I only have 128gig SSD.16:07
neopsycheikonia: i thought it best to leave plenty of space for installing programs.. they intall into filesystem right?16:08
ikonianeopsyche: it's totally up to you how you partition it, and yes, they install into the file system16:08
tmmunqif you want to hibernate, you need swap to be as big as the amount of ram. if you dont need hibernate, no swap file16:08
ikoniano swap file is not a "no brainer"16:08
rypervencheneopsyche: For a desktop, I usually put them all onto / and create a swap of about 4G.16:08
ikoniahaving a swap file can be benificial16:08
neopsycheikonia: my swap file is 4.1 .. and ram is 4gig so i guess thats ok :-)16:09
ikonianeopsyche: seems sensible16:09
tmmunqif youre swapping youre doing it wrong! close stuff or buy more ram16:09
Matt_91-Livehi, i'we download the ubuntu13.04 64bit .iso file. i check the checksum that is right but i try to make 2 times with 2 different USB archive with startup disk creator, but it make an image with errors16:09

neopsycheikonia: thanks. indeed. darn those proprietary drivers.. driving us up the wall!16:10
wilee-nileeMoscherkobold, There a raid somewhere in this setup16:11
ikonianeopsyche: it's a limitation, sadly most will have to live with/deal with16:11

BadK1ttylike program files in microcrap software is the location of installed software i can point downloaded files to where the heck is the equivalent in ubuntu?16:11
neopsycheikonia: hybernate / suspend is a limitation?16:12

CyLHi, how do I find why a given package is listed as a dependency for another package?16:16
neopsycheikonia: wierd. and it sometimes tells me it cant 'find node in the list' or something16:16
neopsycheikonia: i can usually get it working again .. by enable/disable wireless and/or networking. (usually networking)16:16
MonkeyDustCyL  try apt-cache depends [package]16:17
ikonianeopsyche: I suspect that's specific to your setup rather than a problem with intel in general, I have 3 - 4 intel wireless laptops here and I get range of 20+ meters every day (I could go further but I have no physical access to do so)16:17
CyLMonkeyDust: Actually that's not what I wanted. I want to know the reasons for such dependency16:18
neopsycheikonia: probably .. some kind of wierd windows / driver issue .. not accessible by linux probably16:18
Moscherkoboldikonia: any suggestions for my bootproblem? http://paste.ubuntu.com/6033190/16:18
ikonianeopsyche: why are you referencing windows drivers if you're using linux ?16:18
ikoniaMoscherkobold: not even looked at it16:19
neopsycheikonia: just mean that windows drivers have access to some aspects of drivers that linux does not in some cases16:19
MonkeyDustCyL  idd, i didnt see the word 'why' in your question, my mistake16:20
Moscherkoboldikonia: if you have some minutes that would be great, i think it is a minor thing but I am afraid of damaging something16:20
ikonianeopsyche: I doubt that very much as linux support on intel is fully supported the same as windows for pretty much every component, intel develop very agressive for linux16:20
ikoniaMoscherkobold: just ask the channel, if someone can help, they will16:20
sockyhey guys, I need a crontab pro to help me out.  I have two php commands wrapped into a shell script.  The script also has a line that echos to a log file.  If I execute the (very basic) script from cli, the line get pushed to the log file and the php scripts files are processed the way I need.  However, if I install to crontab, the line gets written, but the php files do not get processed...16:20

ubottubkilloran: Information about the Ubuntu Touch platform for Phone and Tablet is available here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch support and discussion in #ubuntu-touch16:22

ikoniabkilloran: sorry, bit out of scope for this channel,16:22
bkilloranwhoops sorry, disregard16:22
MonkeyDustCyL  what you can do: read the man page of a package, scroll down to "author" and contact that person16:23
CyLikonia: And that's exactly what I'm asking.16:23
ikoniaCyL: somethings will be pretty obvious, eg: xclock linked to X-11 packages, well clearly, some may not be as obvious, such as an obscure build time option for a rare function, that needs a library16:23
CyLMonkeyDust: Thanks for the tip16:23

ikoniachro: ssh-copy-id will put the key on there16:24
CyLikonia, MonkeyDust: Actually maybe I should just as for this specific case. The package I want to know about is Skype, I'd like to know why it depends on mysql-common16:24
chroikonia, I want to connect without needing to use a password16:25
ikoniaCyL: you'd have to contact skype for that as it's their package, I suspect it's for accessing a db client library for tracking history or something like that16:25

chroikonia, it asks me for a password...16:27
CyLMonkeyDust: Yeah, I know it, I was just wondering if this was a metapackage that took care of downloading and installing things or really a package done by skype16:27
ikoniachro: the user password or the ssh key password16:27
chrouser password, since I inserted a blank ssh key pass16:27

awc737I was doing some things, you know l33th4x0r things16:29

ikoniaawc737: not "those 4 libraries" - they are not commands/process - they are words16:31

awc737should I continue installing these dependencies?16:34
ikoniaawc737: ok - so why is it not in 13.04 ?16:34
ikoniaawc737: no, you should not in my opinion as you should not be trying to install a 12.04 package in 13.0416:34
awc737probably becuase someone looked at it, and said that's for exchange 2000/2003. we're done supporting that16:34

awc737ikonia, if all the source packages dependencies exist in 13.04 repo, and install cleanly, i shouldn't worry, right?16:37
applebroz222how do i do this?16:37
ikoniaawc737: you should not do this16:37
awc737why? they're current packages16:37
ikoniaawc737: so ?16:37
awc737so any package i want to install should be ok?16:38
ikoniaawc737: where does that logic come from ???16:38
awc737someone put them there and tested them16:38
awc737i presume16:38

applebroz222theres no open with16:43
SolarisBoybecause it has the .desktop extension most likely16:43
applebroz222oops caps16:44

applebroz222ill just tell u the problem16:47
SolarisBoyor just view it? short answer yes gksu or gksudo i forget for opening graphical apps16:47
applebroz222openjdk isnt showing up in the open with list16:47
SolarisBoyopenjdk is a group of binaries =)16:48
applebroz222so i need to put it in the /usr/shered/applicaations default file16:48
applebroz222i think16:48
applebroz222the openjdk 7 runtime16:48
daftykinswhat's the java program?16:48
applebroz222feed the beast16:48
tmmunqyou run java program with a command like 'java example.jar'16:48
applebroz222the jar isnt executable on click16:49
applebroz222ya i know java -jar -.jar16:49
SolarisBoyand then it depends on your default java which one gets called16:49
hardliner_use oracle java, not openjdk16:49
applebroz222but youre meant to be able to have it execute on a click by default by setting the default to a java runtime16:49
applebroz222but nor oracle java or openjdk are showing up in the open with list16:50
rypervencheapplebroz222: You can use OpenJDK just fine.16:50
applebroz222so what should i do16:50
hardliner_intellij idea doesn't work correctly with openjdk, use oracle16:50
SolarisBoyapplebroz222: what is your actual problem , is it that the wrong java is opening the app?16:51
applebroz222i need to get openjdk7 runtime into the default list in /usr/share/applications16:51
applebroz222no i dont get an option to open it with any java16:51
applebroz222just the archive util16:52

=== harmagent is now known as vector
SolarisBoyapplebroz222: correct16:54
SolarisBoyyou don't see openjdk you must add it - add the java binary from that directory that openjdk is installed to16:54
applebroz222i dont know how to dod that16:55
SolarisBoyright click the file and go to properties16:55
SolarisBoythere should be a tab like "open with"16:55
SolarisBoythere should be some defaults/recommended and so forth - you should look first if you see OpenJDK if not - you'll need to click the show other applicaitons button and find it16:56
applebroz222there is no said button16:56

Marleneewhat is the full command16:58

SolarisBoyalong with the whatever existed16:59
hardliner_to see where is your jdk is16:59
SolarisBoynah - dpkg -L <pkgname> to see where the jdk binaries are if you really wnted to know16:59
SolarisBoylocate can show cached inaccurate results and it's not avail by default afaik16:59
MonkeyDustwhoever asked the wget question: try wget -m17:00
hardliner_SolarisBoy, i wrote earlier dpkg -l | grep jdk17:00

SolarisBoytomlikestorock: script17:01
tomlikestorockSolarisBoy: that'll capture everything already on the screen?17:01
SolarisBoytomlikestorock: or screen if you wanted to be extra - but the "script" command will capture everything you type until you exit the "script" session17:01

tomlikestorockah, I was looking more for stuff that was already in the buffer17:02
SolarisBoytomlikestorock: try screen if you need that17:02
applebroz222but adding the ppa and apt-get install Ubuntu-tweak isnt working17:02
hardliner_SolarisBoy,  but to use dpkg with -L option you should already know what package you have on your system17:02
SolarisBoyhardliner_: naturally17:02
Luyinapplebroz222: have you updated your package information with apt-get update?17:03
hardliner_SolarisBoy, to know this user can use dpkg - l | grep <package>17:03
SolarisBoysure he can. or he could dpkg -l 'package'17:03
SolarisBoyand avoid extra typing17:03

rachoWiz_KeeD: read the doc Luke -> http://www.debian-administration.org/article/SSH_with_authentication_key_instead_of_password17:28
PiciWiz_KeeD: If you don't want to ssh into the root user's account, then you'd need another account on the server. Otherwise just do ssh-copy-id root@remoteserver17:28
rachoWiz_KeeD: try to avoid logging as root. create another account and use sudo17:29
Wiz_KeeDI did ssh-copy-id with no further arguments17:30

intraderMaple__, thanks, I don't know why he brought up EMACS. My problem is not with GVIM but with unity.17:32

intraderracho, no difference - why do you think that it is a GVIM problem?.17:57
wilee-nileeScunizi, Some people have seemed to have problems with the latest kernel upgrade and nvidia, can't say this is the issue, try an earlier kernel in the grub menu to test.17:58
rachointrader: because obviously it required the missing lib which is already removed from the ubuntu repos.17:59
wilee-nileesupsiii, This is way off topic, and from a arguement point about as weak as it gets.17:59

Dr_WillisI was thinking that the mtp stuff worked for me on 13.04 - but i rarely use a usb cable. so im not so sure now.20:00
Dr_Willisartical i posted. says 13.04 should be able to access the device in mtp mode.20:01
usr13AdvoWork: You should see DCIM directory and within that one will be images taken by the phone's camera.  The expansion card will more-than-likely have an empty DCIM directory.20:01
AdvoWorkDr_Willis, that update worked too thanks, and cheers for the tip, and usr13 yeah your right, i can see it now (additional step is i have to unlock my phone too else it shows a blank folder) Cheers20:03
usr13AdvoWork: When I transfer files to my Android, I create a directory on the expansion card for them, like Documents, Music, Pictures, etc.20:03

LiNkZoRand it starts windows* Grub doesn't even show up21:36
Apachezso dualboot you say?21:36
LiNkZoRYea, with windows 8 to start21:36

MonkeyDustHouseLegend  you waited only a few seconds, repeat your question every 10-15 minutes or so, until someone can help21:37
Dr_WillisLiNkZoR:  which boot options?21:37
LiNkZoRpressing f9 during start I think it is, ubuntu shows up21:38
HouseLegendMokneyDust i will see if anyone else here knows ...21:38
Dr_WillisLiNkZoR:  thats the windows bootloader stuff? You did a WUBI install inside windows?21:38
Dr_WillisF9 here - is the bios/pick a hard drive option - i belive.21:38
LiNkZoRNo, I installed from a flash drive, used liveusb to install it to the flashdrive21:38
Mace268is there a good cli ftp client that will get recursively?21:39
LiNkZoRthe one with the flower for a logo21:39
Dr_WillisLiNkZoR:  so you select the flash drive via the F9 bios option and it boots to the grub menu and you can get to linux?21:39
LiNkZoRNo, not the flash drive, there is an entry there that says ubuntu, i click on that and THEN it loads grub21:39
HouseLegendDr_Willis, when you are talking about grub already is there any config where i can set it up to boot windows insted of ubuntu atumaticaly ?21:39
andwell thanks Mark for Ubuntu21:40
Dr_WillisLiNkZoR:  sounds tome like its showing the Ubuntu Flash drive. and it loads grub. which would be normal21:40
andUbuntu is for normal humans21:40
LiNkZoRFlash drive isn't even in21:40
Dr_WillisLiNkZoR:   then you got us confused. You  just said you installed to the flash drive.. or do you mean you  did a NORMAL install to the hard drive. via a USB-Flash drive.21:41
LiNkZoRI did a normal install to the hard drive, via flash drive21:41
abrknis there a trick to initctl to start if not started else restart?21:41
Dr_WillisLiNkZoR:  so how many hard drives do you have internally? just 1?21:41
LiNkZoROnly one21:41
Dr_WillisNo idea what your 'F9' menu is showing then. Unless its the bios showing the bootable partitions.21:42
LiNkZoRI think that is what it is showing21:42
Dr_WillisYou could try booting to your ubuntu install. and trying the boot-repair tool or the grub tools to install grub to the MBR of the hard drive (sda) and it should boot that automatically21:42
Dr_Willisor just do it like you got now. :) you got a Hidden OS no one will find. ;P21:43

iceroot_aPpYe: #kubuntu #kde21:45
wilee-nileeLiNkZoR, bootrepair has multiple repair possibilities, post the generated url of the bootinfo summary and explain the issues your having.21:46
Dr_WillisLiNkZoR:  you install grub to the mbr of 'sda' normally, not sda121:46
Dr_Willisor sda2 or sda3 :) those are partitions21:46
LiNkZoRhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/6034301/ this is the last boot repair I tried21:47

wilee-nileeLiNkZoR, That is uefi I would use the ubuntu forums, grub will not go to the mbr.21:48
LiNkZoRI had made a post on the askubuntu.com , should I post somewhere else?21:49
LiNkZoRIf there's not a convienent way to fix it, I guess I could keep it like this, it's still useable and everything21:50
wilee-nileeLiNkZoR, The ubuntu forums has a mod who specializes in uefi, personally I would go there, here is a thread by them, if you get no help here. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=214729521:51
Dr_WillisI dont even have a system with UEFI yet. :() so  other then suggesting making sure grub is on the MBR of 'sda' or checking the bios default boot settings. Not sure what else to say21:51
wilee-nileethat uefi is a mystery to me. ;)21:52
LiNkZoRAhh, well thanks alot guys. I'll take a look on the forums/post there, but atleast I can use ubuntu21:53
LiNkZoRdr_willis I tried that, it doesn't show up in the Bios, only OS manager does so grub won't star21:56
clientHello warld21:56
Dr_Willisnot even sure what 'os manager' is - unless its some UEFI specific tool for your machine21:56
clientanybody awake here?21:57
Dr_Willisclient:  no. ;)21:57
clientDr_Willis are you american?21:58
Extreminadorwhy does the mouse and touchpad does not have a option build in to turn off touchpad when a mouse is plug in ?21:58
Extreminador*"mouse and touchpad" menu21:58
clientdo you want to deactivate the mousepad firmware?21:59
clientI would suggest not doing it, but do you?21:59
Dr_Williscould proberly be done so via some udev rules.21:59
LiNkZoRBye, thanks for the help21:59
Dr_Willisbut if they goofed up. you could be with out a touchpad21:59
Extreminadorfirmware client ohhhh21:59
ExtreminadorDr_Willis i did have to downoad a program that do that... and i need to put that program to init22:00
Extreminadorcalled synaptics or something22:00
Dr_Willissynapatics is a brand of touch pad. it may have some config tools in the repos22:01
clientDr_Willis are you american?22:01
Dr_Willisclient:  why does it matter?22:02
clientI need a favour from an american :D22:02
Dr_Willisgood luck with that.22:02
ExtreminadorDr_Willis yup, but my question is why did i had to download the tool... such option should be already exits in ubuntu22:02
Dr_WillisExtreminador:   ask the gnome devs perhaps?22:02
iceroot_Extreminador: because not everyone has a touchpoad so why should it be installed bny default?22:02
Extreminadorlool i am sure they are here somewhere no ?22:03
clientoh u not willing to assist?22:03
Dr_Willisclient:  you are basically offtopic. and being vague. so i suggest asking in #ubuntu-offtopic22:03
clientok thanks mate22:03
Extreminadoriceroot_ i am not left-handed but unbuu have that option for mouse22:04
genii!info gsynaptics22:04
ubottugsynaptics (source: gpointing-device-settings): configuration tool for pointing devices (transitional package). In component universe, is optional. Version 1.5.1-6ubuntu2 (raring), package size 1 kB, installed size 28 kB22:04
Extreminadoriceroot_ just an example22:04
Dr_Willisa huge 28kB installed. ;)22:04
Dr_Willistheres 1000's of things that 'should be installed by default' ;) but then you end up with a 9+GB iso file.22:05
iceroot_Extreminador: and i want a real editor installed by default but there is no editor installed by default, so thats life and the good thing is you are free to install what you want :)22:05
iceroot_Extreminador: there is no system which fits all needs with 100%22:06
ExtreminadorDr_Willis i understand that but for example ... it has as well an option to deactivate the touchpah when we are writing on keyboard22:06
iceroot_Dr_Willis: the main problems are the dependencies22:06
iceroot_Dr_Willis: it depends on some driver packages and so on, so more then 28kb22:06
* Dr_Willis installs everythibng22:07
Extreminadorhumm thougt that it was only 3 or 4 lines of code for this... but yehh iceroot_ you are right22:07
Extreminadorthere are many mouses tip's22:07
iceroot_and we already face issues with a to big iso, the current isos dont fit on a cd22:08
Dr_Willisthen you got people saying 'im using a dvd to burn it to! so Fill that thing up!'22:08
iceroot_Dr_Willis: and then it will not fit anymore on a dvd :)22:09
Extreminadorand is that such a big issue iceroot_ ?22:09
Dr_WillisThen you got Dual Layer DVD ;)  then Blueray22:09
Dr_Willisnot fitting on a cd - was a HUGE issue when it first happened. had people in here every day complaining about it22:09
iceroot_Extreminador: if you want to use cds, maybe your pc is only able to boot from cd instead of usb, yes22:09
HouseLegendAnyone has some experience and can help me out with setting up 5.1 in Ubuntu 13.04 ?22:10
Extreminadori mean in this days cd are being out dated for example and 500GB hard rives are being as well out of date22:10
Dr_WillisHouseLegend:  from my experience. i just plugged in the speakers..  and played a source/video  that had 5.1 and it worked.22:10
iceroot_Extreminador: and what is the problem about sudo apt-get install packagename?22:10
Extreminadorwell if you know what to look for none22:10
HouseLegendDr_Willis, im getting only my front 2 speakers to work ...22:11
iceroot_Extreminador: there are so many more useful packages which should be installed by default then a mpouse setting thing (vim, screen, openssh-server, gimp)22:11
Dr_WillisI would like to see a 'common extra packages' cd for ubuntu - to help out these people without internet connection22:11
Extreminadorbut if you are new and you don´t know what to look for well...22:11
HouseLegendDr_Willis, just stereo channel22:11

HouseLegendDr_Willis, mp3 with Rythmbox22:11
Dr_WillisHouseLegend:  are you sure the mp3 has 5.1 channels?22:11
s2013how would i find the application and add it to my dock?22:12
HouseLegendDr_Willis sound check and in settings it shows only 2 speakers so ...22:12
iceroot_Extreminador: you are right, its not that easy if you dont know the packagename22:12
iceroot_Extreminador: but sometimes the search function in the software center is not that bad22:12
Dr_Williss2013:  the webupd8 or omgubuntu site. and  I belive askubuntu.com and the sublime forums  - had guides on making a launcher for it.22:12
iceroot_Extreminador: touchpad config for example should be a useful search string22:12
s2013i mean i cant even find the actual app22:12
s2013how do i open it?22:12
Extreminadoriceroot_ very true this ubuntu software center is very nice indeed22:13
peyams2013, what is the issue?22:13

s2013or create shortcut in desktop/launcher22:14
HouseLegendDr_Willis, What should i do ... I have no luck setting it up on my own22:14
s2013it works only from terminal22:14

AnonynimityHello I'm having an issue with nautilus. I need some help resolving this issue.23:09
AnonynimityWhenever I go into Downloads, Nautilus automatically closes, but if I go into a different folder, it stays open23:10
AnonynimityIt does this with certain folders, and I cannot determine the cause of this issue.23:10
wilee-nileeAnonynimity, You ever run in root or in a rooted terminal in it?23:10
AnonynimityI have not. The closest thing I've come to root is sudo23:11
hexadysmal'Ello #ubuntu, I have a silly question. How would I go about actively running multiple programs and switching between them in a TTY? Getting a bit tired of having to kill connections just to check on some things.23:11
AnonynimityI will not use sudo -i and I will not use sudo -s23:11
Anonynimityand I have not done so in the past wilee-nilee23:11
wilee-nileeAnonynimity, what does this command show uname -a23:12
ccmolikhexadysmal: screen23:12

AnonynimityHave you tried modprobe pendos_23:16
wilee-nileeAnonynimity, Try running the stock kernel 3.823:16
Anonynimityhow do I revert to stock kernel?23:16
wilee-nileeAnonynimity, grub boot menu23:16
pendos_I upgraded to 3.10.923:16
AnonynimityRaring has been doing this for quite a while. wilee-nilee and since I did an update and auto-remove, the stock kernel is no longer avaliable.23:16
wilee-nileeAnonynimity, Thats the only thing that occurs to me.23:17
Anonynimitybut I'm not about to do a fresh install and lose all my data...23:17
Anonynimityis there another file manager I can use other than dolphin and nautilus?23:17
wilee-nileependos_, What release is this?23:18
wilee-nileeAnonynimity, Your not backed up?23:19
Anonynimitybacked up with what?23:19
pendos_Uhm... actually I'm running crunchbang 11, but I thought that maybe any fixes for Ubuntu could also apply to me. everyone on the crunchbang channel is just as baffled as I am.23:19
wilee-nileeAnonynimity, many different ways.23:20
wilee-nileependos_, not supported here.23:20
AnonynimityI have 223 gigs of data on this computer, and no external hard drive....23:20
AnonynimityI don't have any data disks either.23:20
Anonynimityand I'm pretty sure an online backup isn't going to be offered for free with that much data23:20
wilee-nileeAnonynimity, Ah, bummer, well things fail, I would be prepared.23:21
IMTheNachoManis vnc + ssh port forwarding the best way to access my machine from the internet? is there nothing better available?23:21
Anonynimityhere's the funny thing wilee-nilee: I took my os from 12.04 LTS to 13.04 Beta testing, (had to do a few minor installs and upgrades)...23:22
