Yu-YuAnyone got hints?00:03
daftykinsmapps: one more thought, you could use the wired link to fully update and dist-upgrade now00:04
wilee-nileeYu-Yu, probably help if you named the release and dektop.00:05

SchrodingersScatknigitz: did it create a folder?00:10
knigitzyes, i had a folder created before I rebooted my VM.  however, it only populated folders, never any files (which was the reason I tried a reboot), and the dropbox daemon now will not start.00:10

MJ90Hi Every One, I am new to Linux. I have a problem with my EVDO 3g modem. The modem is used for chinal telecome. I bought it from third party seller. I live in Myanmar. My problem is that the modem is not detected by the Ubuntu at every time of booting up. It show up some time and not. If it is showed, I can't used it with Ununtu's Network Setting. I have to use wvdial00:23
MJ90What should I do, to dected it every time of booting up.00:23
mappsleaving it to upgrade now gonna go to the gym hopefully be done when i get back-00:24

MJ90if not, Bus 006 Device 002: ID 05c6:1000 Qualcomm, Inc. USB mass storage00:29
wilee-nileeYu-Yu, I did not state a download, that is a fresh install if you want a released version.00:30

Yu-Yusepero: I didn't reinstall it here since 2009 or like that.00:32
MJ90Hi, What should I do.00:32
seperoYu-Yu: Why are you using a beta version of the system? It should be expected to have fundamental problems00:32
seperoYu-Yu: If you want a very stable system, you need to go with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS00:33

Silver_ArrowI can't figure out what snippet from my dmesg sixad-raw wants about my controller00:33
wilee-nileeMJ90, I'm not seeing much on that unit none really, personally I would get one that plugs and just works, drivers for linux in many areas are just not kicked out by manufacturers.00:34
Yu-Yusepero: I am weird and my decisions weird are. Nevertheless, all I know at the moment is that if I want a stable system, I have to build my own team and make this stable system appear.00:34
MJ90Thanks wilee-nilee00:35
seperoYu-Yu: Just install Ubuntu 12.0400:35
Yu-Yusepero: Okay. I won't do so. I don't wanna follow that weird MS way.00:38

zykotick9Siecje: \u i'd guess01:54
nerdtronBenkinooby that is hard drive intensive task..and since it is single core, you'll run out of resources for other tasks01:54
Siecjedo I have to log off to see changes?01:55
Benkinoobynerdtron: hard drive was not the probem. even RAM was ok. it was cpu only01:55
Benkinoobymaybe a bug01:55
zykotick9Siecje: try "source ~/.bashrc" and see if that updates things01:55
nerdtronBenkinooby it could be not a bug, maybe the program you are using is really cpu intensive..I only you have a dual core cpu, it would be faster01:56

c2tarunHi friends, I just created a swap partition so that I can hibernate my laptop. Do I have to enable this swap partition somehow or linux will automatically detect it? http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/screenshot-friday30august2013-072757ist.php02:01
zykotick9Siecje: start a new bash session then, run "bash".02:01
mhallI am seeing an absolutely bizarre bug on a Gateway AMD Vision box with EFI firmware. The display comes up as "1920x1080" in X, but blurry, and not filling the entire 1920x1080 LCD panel. Almost like it's a bad VGA connection. But the connection is HDMI. Has anybody else figured out the cause of this? I am not even really sure how to Google a problem this strange.02:02
mhallThis EFI system has been nothing but pure misery to try to install02:03
histoc2tarun: you need it mounted then you can swapon /whatever02:03
zykotick9Siecje: i see at least two other entries with /u in them, perhaps you aren't changing the right one?02:03
c2tarunhisto, how do I do that?02:03
histoc2tarun: jsut swapon /dev/of/partition02:03
mhallIs there a different ATI driver I could try besides the fglrx or anything02:03
histoc2tarun: assuming you have mkswap'd it02:04
Siecjeok that worked02:04
mhallman that IPv6 just needs one more nybble set for a full house02:05
histoc2tarun: then you can add it to your fstab to utilize it on boot02:05
c2tarunhisto, I was reading about fstab only02:06
histoc2tarun: create an entry for your swap partition in your /etc/fstab02:06
histo!swap | c2tarun02:06
ubottuc2tarun: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info02:06
c2tarunhisto, will this do? http://askubuntu.com/questions/33697/adding-swap-partition-after-system-installation02:08
ozetteI added a file "llvm-nightly.list" to my sources.list.d directory, and now i'm trying to install a list of packages from the repo.. the packages can't be found however, do I have to restart apt somehow?02:08
wilee-nileeozette, where did you get it a PPA?02:09
Siecjehow do I change the hotkeys to put windows in the corners from num pad numbers to numbers02:09
NeverHerec2tarun, you can increase your swap space with the built in disk utility last i checked, if thats what you are trying to do02:09
c2tarunNeverHere, I created swap, I am trying to activate it.02:10
ozettewilee-nilee, no, i copy paste it from the llvm site http://llvm.org/apt/02:10
zykotick9ozette: "sudo apt-get update" should pull any new, WORKING repos in.02:10
NeverHerec2tarun, swap is automatically activated when the system runs low or out of usable memory02:10
ozettezykotick9, aha.. let me try that02:10
c2tarunNeverHere, I guess I have to mention that a partition is swap in /etc/fstab02:11
trystanfinally lol people02:11
histoc2tarun: yeah looks good02:11
mapdaftykins,  it works now02:11
mapafter upgrade came back from gym and it listed my network:D02:12
c2tarunhisto, here is my new fstab: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6042536/02:13
c2tarunI think I should reboot and then test my hibernate. Thanks histo02:15
ozettezykotick9, the update threw a GPG error on this new repo and complained about a public key not being available, nonetheless it doesn't seem to matter and it has worked the packages are now installing, thanks02:15
histoc2tarun: why not just swapon /dev/sda6    and see now02:15
c2tarunhisto, I did that from gparted menu. Is it same as you are saying?02:16
Siecjehow do I change the hotkey alt+ctrl+Num pad 9 to be just regular 902:16
histoc2tarun: open a terminal and type in sudo swapon /dev/sda602:16
c2tarunhisto, I am getting device or resource busy, is there any way to check which device is in swapon right now?02:17
zykotick9histo: i'm not sure if the swap needs to be in fstab for this to work, but I always use "sudo swapon -a" (for all), or the reverse "sudo swapoff -a".02:17
zykotick9histo: actually, i don't think it does need to be in fstab (thus my suggesting it), as the ubuntu LiveCD does it automatically.02:18
c2tarunhisto, I found this in my /proc/swaps http://paste.ubuntu.com/6042544/ I think I can test is now only.02:19
c2tarunzykotick9, actually I didn't opted for swap partition while installation.02:19
histoc2tarun: free -m     does that show swap being on?02:19
c2tarunhisto, yes02:19
histoc2tarun: then try your silly hibernation. Hopefully swap is bigger than your physical ram size02:20
c2tarunhisto, yup :) approx 500 MB bigger. Just curious, why is hibernation silly?02:20
* zykotick9 doesn't find hibernation "silly"02:20

zykotick9tarun_: hibernation is disabled-by-default in ubuntu for a reason ;)02:27

tarun_zykotick9, yeah I did a dry run by sudo pm-hibernate.02:27
=== tarun_ is now known as c2tarun
zykotick9tarun_: hibernation is VERY hardware/driver dependant02:28
c2tarunzykotick9, yeah, I am not trying hibernation again in ubuntu. Actually my problem is ubuntu's support with broadcom wi-fi card is little buggy. Sometimes it doesn't detect any wifi network :)02:29

funky2download, save on dvd and send to new host?03:00
mapits a fresh 13.04 ninstall ran dist-upgrade and then after that finished it worked..reboot and now it doesnt work03:00
ffioholstein: thank you :)03:00
funky2i wonder which host offer some panel access to bare metal to copy u files to it03:00
mapbut wlan0 listed in iwconfig and ifconfig just no networks?! its not showing any03:00
holsteinfunky2: you can ask the hosts for support with that03:01
funky2well I asked one they said they dont care03:01
funky2or send dvd in post03:01
funky2I wonder if there is some trick03:01
holsteinfunky2: any way to move the data should work..03:02
Anonynimityxchat eating up bandwidth... be back after upgrade and after jitsi nightly downloads.03:02
funky2like I can boot host ubuntu and then somehow tell ubuntu to use my dvd?03:02
funky2holstein: well say I got ec2 ubuntu box and hertzner back uo03:02
funky2what do I do?03:02
holsteinfunky2: "host" ubuntu may not be ubuntu, and may not be officially supported here03:02
holsteinfunky2: what is "hertzner"03:03
funky2its a hosting provider03:03
funky2so how do u migrate ubuntu install usually?03:03
holsteinfunky2: you will ask them for support.. if you have access, you download the data you are talking about and put it up on the new machine03:03
funky2put it how?03:03
funky2simply log in to new ubuntu and then what? once I format hdd I loose putty access03:04
holsteinfunky2: ask the host.. i grab the data friend.. via ssh.. with a filemanager.. whatever way i choose.. grsync03:04
funky2well grab part I get03:04
funky2its to get it to new dudes03:04
holsteinfunky2: when you actually have a 'new" ubuntu, you wont login and wipe anything03:04
holsteinfunky2: you are the same "dude".. they dont care because its your data.. you backup the data, and move it over03:04
funky2they care cause I pay03:05
holsteinfunky2: you can , assuming the host allows, clone the os03:05
funky2clone os ooo03:05
funky2does ubuntu itself have feature when i can select ubuntu server tar and it will install it?03:05
funky2or some soft to do it03:06
holsteinfunky2: ubuntu server *is* ubuntu03:06
holsteinfunky2: its already ubuntu at that point.. or, arguably ubuntu..03:06
funky2ok then soft to migrate all the stuff03:06
funky2email server03:06
holsteinfunky2: this is an issue you need to ask the hosts.. i have *no* idea what access you have to what operating systems on what host03:06
holsteinand what they allow03:06
funky2or hey I can simply copy paste ubuntu dirs!03:07
holsteinfunky2: you can, if they allow you to, clone, as i said, and move it03:07
funky2holstein:  what do u mean by os clone?03:07
funky2some link?03:07
holsteinfunky2: i mean, what youa re asking.. moving the operating system03:07
funky2my idea get same ubuntu on new box and then copy paste server dirs03:07
holsteinfunky2: loading up something like clonezilla, and backing it up03:07
funky2it seems host dont want to allow for easy migration to keep customers03:08
holsteinfunky2: getting 'same ubuntu on new box and copy paste' is what i meant when i said backup your data and move it over03:08
advHi all, Good Morning03:08
funky2yes I get it now03:08
funky2hey adv03:08
holsteinthough, you dont need, and might not get the same version03:08
funky2will it work with diff version?03:09
holsteinfunky2: also, those are *not* necassarily ubuntu03:09
holsteinfunky2: again, friend.. i have *no* idea what willl work with what.. since you may or may not be using ubuntu at a host.. the host is who will support you in this migration.. i would have my data backed up manually before hand03:09

holsteinfunky2: pidgin is not an email server03:12
funky2yes its no03:12
funky2I am sleepy hence the mess :D03:12
holsteinfunky2: you can learn to move anything anywhere.. its all open, and nothing is hiding.. but you need to seek support with the host..03:13
holsteinfunky2: i suggest manually backing up the data locally.. then, just migrate and actuallly have another server to discuss. if you cant sort out putting the data back, then you'll have something to actually discuss03:14

Licideand I don't want wubi :P03:56
wilee-nileeLicide, Could also be a bad download, you can check the ISO's md5sum. You could also see if the list is the same with and without the usb, to confirm being read as another media.03:57
revelrevolLicide...sorry, did I miss that from earlier? just joined. I checked the ubuntu website for certified hardware and downloaded the version (12.04 LTS) that was certified for my hardware. U-USB Inst wouldn't work for me several times over.03:57
LicideI redownloaded every time03:58
revelrevolwhat do you view as a negative regarding wubi?03:58
LicideI just want a real install :P03:58
revelrevol? mine is a dual boot, but quite real03:59
wilee-nileerevelrevol, You might read what the wubi designer says about it. Wubi is not a dualboot it is a file in windows.03:59

lonejackHi, does anyone know how to change (non admin) user privileges(connect wifi, allow sw upgrade) on 12.04?04:01
lonejackon previous vesrion that was possible04:02
wilee-nileelonejack, Can you explain that more clearly using full words?04:02
mapcan anyone lend a hand with this broadcom problem I'm having?04:05
wilee-nileelonejack, So is it you want updates from a standard account?04:05
NeverHeremap, have you tried installing restricted drivers?04:05
zykotick9lonejack: i'd A) suggest adding that user to sudo group (admin) or B) wrestle with sudoers for those tasks.  good luck.04:05
LicideWiiUme that04:05
lonejackwilee-nilee, I've a laptop. I'm the admin. I want to give the laptop to a non expert user. I created a new user but I wuold like to allowe him to connect to genric (new) wifi04:06
mapive tried almost everything i can find NeverHere  =[ removed bcmwl-kernel-source then installed linux-firmware-nonfree hd to do that off a usb stick as i had no wired connection either04:06
mapthen i ran apt-get upograde and wireless worked..rebooted and it's gone=[04:06
LicideWiiUill use this :P04:06
lonejackzykotick9, ok04:06
lonejackzykotick9, create a new group04:06
NeverHeremap could i maybe be a hardware issue?04:07
zykotick9lonejack: no.  sudo is a default group - that allows sudo use.04:07
wilee-nileelonejack, If you have wifi set to auto login and it is the same nick and password they will.04:07
mapyea it is in that broadcoms are a pain:D but thats all afaik04:07
researcher123By what command line can I know my RAM on Ubuntu 13.04?04:08
wilee-nileewifi does not need admin in general anyway04:08
zykotick9researcher123: "free -m" is one way04:08
NeverHeremap i hate to ask the stupid question but is the wifi on, some computers let you disable the wifi with a keypress04:08
mapthere's no button on this laptop mate=[04:08
researcher123zykotick9: ok.trying04:08
mapive checked rfkill list all04:08
mapand it says hardware/software no to locing it04:09
NeverHeremap is beyond my lack of expertise sorry04:09
mapthanks anyway pal04:10
NeverHeremap when you plug in the ethernet you don't get anything either?04:11
mapi do now04:11
mapgot wired04:11
mapbut i wanted to use it upstairs!04:11
NeverHeredoes it detect wifi? and not connect? or not detect it at all?04:11
mapit doesnt list any networks at all..but iwconfig shows wlan0 as does ifconfig04:12
mapand lspci --nnk says its using b43-pci-bridge04:12
advbye 4 now...04:12
NeverHeremap i suggest a usb wifi dongle from walmart ;)04:12
maphah :)04:12
LicideWiiUwith usb: CBM in boot menu04:12
LicideWiiUoh CBM looks like it, i thought i did it alrady x04:15
lonejackzykotick9, wilee-nilee , for your interest with 'gnome-system-tools' you can manage the user privileges on a system04:18
wilee-nileeLicideWiiU, What you may not know is there is a boot from menu that is outside of the bios, I use it, it is a par-session boot, the bios splash will tell you the key prompt generally, mine is f12, That is the easiest way to try various boots.04:18
wilee-nileelonejack, I have never used a gui to manage these areas.04:21
TechTonicsdoes anyone know how to remove a package if it was installed from the tarball?04:25
NeverHereTechTonics, did you install it with Make?04:26
jpdsTechTonics: Yes, run make uninstall from the build directory.04:26
TechTonicsyes i used to make04:26
wilee-nileeTechTonics, Did you read the read me?04:27
mojtabaHi, could you please let me know what are the differences between different distros (except desktop environments like KDE, GNOME, UNITY, ...)? I mean why there is lots of distros?04:29
TechTonicsthere is no uninstall and the README has nothing to do with removing04:29
jpdsTechTonics: Just run "make uninstall".04:29
TechTonicsi'm trying to remove ruby 2.0 if that helps04:29
NeverHereTechTonics, sometimes you can do apt-get remove ruby04:30
jpdsTechTonics: You did run "make install" to install it.04:30
NeverHerethat might remove the package04:30
jpdsNeverHere: Package might not even be installed.04:30
patrick_wow my experience so far with my Lenovo T531 on Ubuntu 13.04 has been piss poor.04:30
mapmojtaba,  some you have to compile specifically for your machine which means its more complicated but also faster then04:30
mappatrick_,  wireless?04:30
TechTonicsjpds : yes i used make install04:30
patrick_nvidia happened to it.04:31
TechTonicsNeverHere : apt-get doesn't see i have installed04:31
patrick_Optimus. :(04:31
TechTonicsjpds : make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'.  Stop.04:31
NeverHereTechTonics, when you ran make install, did it tell you insuffiecent permissions?04:31
Berglemap: are programs you compile yourself really noticably faster than regular packaged ones?04:31
patrick_more like, Optimshit04:31
TechTonicsnope  .. had to use sudo04:31
jpdsmojtaba: Why are there a lot of distros? Because have different thoughts on how to do things.04:32
zykotick9TechTonics: using source tarballs, means there is no way other then what that tarball offers.  Why you might want to use "/msg ubottu checkinstall" for an alternative!04:32
NeverHereTechTonics, do nano MAKEFILE and search for something like uninstall or remove or similar then exit and do make <whatever>04:32

JeffATLi have jsut installed 12.04 on a gateway netbook with ati radeon and when i boot up i get a very scrambled screen; my mouse pointer is a yellow block about a half inch wide with some lines and dots in it.  if i manage to start e.g. firefox, the google page displays normally among all the mess but the text in the window title bar, tab, and the letters on the page to the right of the three round gray icons is messed up04:49
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter04:49

JeffATLis there a way i can intercede at boot time to try nomodeset?04:53
dr_willisJeffATL: at the grub menu04:53
dr_willisi think the url above shows how exactly.04:54
dr_willishold shift. get to grub editir with 'e'   change line to be  'noquiet nofb nosplash'   ..  or somthing like that04:55
JeffATLdr_willis: ok, i think i can follow that.  how can i effect a clean reboot, given that i can't figure out how from the screen?  or can i just hold down the power button and make it die?04:55
dr_willisoops.. add a nomodeset in there04:55
dr_willishold power for a few sec   forces it off04:56

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%20Mode04:57

Silver_ArrowHmm, how do I run a command, but not bind it to the terminal it started from?05:38
loopedhi. im trying to use bind9 to configure a local dns so that i can control resolving one subdomain (x.y.com) using private ips. ive setup a zone file for y.com and only entered records for x.y.com which works well, however that causes other subdomains of y.com to not resolve anymore05:39
loopedif i add just zone "x.y.com" in my named.conf.local then none of the subdomains resolve.05:39
dr_willisSilver_Arrow:  bash job controll basics. use &. or nohup. or screen ;-)05:40
dr_williscommand  &05:40
dr_willisor ctrl-z.   then 'bg'  for background05:41
loopedsorry, correction - if i change my named.conf.local to use zone "x.y.com" all other subdomains resolve using the external dns correctly, but the x.y.com subdomain fails to resolve.05:41
VioBytelooped, thats because you don't have the zone populated with what the authoritative dns has.05:43
loopedVioByte: i did create a zone file which has entries for x.y.com05:43
VioBytelooped, but no others.05:43
loopedthats right. so i guess my question is - how do i correctly set this up so that my local configuration is *only* used for the one subdomain05:44
JeffATLre the above ati link - i'm having trouble mapping lspci results to the choices there05:44
VioBytelooped, See the first DNS that says "HEY i manage that domains records" will respond to any and all requests for that domain. thus cached in your dns lookup tables05:44
JeffATLlspci says amd/ati RS690M [radeon Xpress 1200/1250/1270]05:45
VioBytelooped, But as for what your attempting todo "Control one subdomain of a domain managed by another dns" wont work.05:45
VioByteunless there's a trick i've not ran across yet.05:46
histoJeffATL: to the choices where?05:46
JeffATLhisto: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx05:46

VioBytelooped.. you could try to make a copy of the authority dns' records. but if they update there records.. your records would be out of date.05:48
loopedVioByte: well these are my own domains05:48
VioBytebut af for forwarding... not that i'm aware of.. If your dns managed that domain then it will not forward any failed lookups for that domain to another dns05:48
histoVioByte: why not use the other dns for secondary05:49
Ben66looped: you should just change the dns for real05:49
loopedbut i was hoping not to have too much duplications (the actual records are in route53). i basically *only* want two of my servers to contact an endpoint using a LAN05:49
histoVioByte: make his local one primary and ISPs secondary05:49
loopedBen66: i dont want to change it for all servers, just specific ones05:49
JeffATLhisto: i have done the nomodeset thing so i don't have a scrambled screen, but i'm stuck with 1024x768 resolution only (wrong aspect ratio for screen besides)05:50
Ben66looped: that makes no sense05:50
VioBytehisto: the first DNS that says "Hey i host the records" will respond and if the zone record does not exists, it will return not found.05:50
histoJeffATL: yes you need fglrx05:50
VioBytehisto: it will not fail over to the ISP05:50
loopedBen66: sorry, i should have said, i dont want all clients of the x.y.com host to see the change.05:50
VioBytehisto: since it already got a response from the first dns05:50
histo!info fglrx-legacy05:50
ubottuPackage fglrx-legacy does not exist in raring05:50

JeffATLlinocisco: i think part of the problem is that i don't think any of us even knows what "travel and tour software" even means.06:07
VioByteJeffATL if its not it then you can uninstall what you just installed with apt-get remove <packagename>06:07
VioByteJeffATL: so you don't have unneeded stuff installed and taking up space.06:08

VioByteJeffATL: that'll show you what package has that file06:09
JeffATLVioByte: i think these instructions are just being obtuse; it says "libraries for xxxx" so it's a matter of apt-cache search like you suggested just to make an edu guess as to the package name06:10

rachoJeffATL, do you have linux-headers installed?08:42
JeffATLracho: at the moment, i don't know08:43

JeffATLracho: ok, fglrx removed08:44
=== cantoma is now known as Guest24591
=== jduro_ is now known as cantoma
JeffATLracho: linux-headers for this version is alrady installed08:46
ikoniaMordFustang: it doesn't quite work like that, crontab has no shell enviornment by default, you have to set one up in the script08:46
ikoniaMordFustang: I suspect it's execting because it's running - failing, exiting,08:46
rachoJeffATL, i can even suggest apt-get purge fglrx. reboot and let us see if you get your default screen res08:46
ikoniaMordFustang: so it appears to run for a minute then end08:46
JeffATLracho: did that purche; rebooting08:47
holden87Hi guys, i have one question. I've been checking out the Moka icons that were published on omgubuntu, and i switched to them in myunity. Now i have a question, how can i switch back to default. Could anyone of you please check in myunity which is your default icon set, just so i don't mistake it. Thanks08:48
rachoholden87, i think ubuntu-mono-dark08:49
JeffATLracho: rebooted to 1024x768 and that's the only one i can select08:49

rachoJeffATL, lspci | grep VGA08:50
Mondaywhat do i type to try out the xfce desktop thanks08:50

subucan anyone help me08:52
Mondaysubu if you are having problems with the ubuntu installer, you can probably try Linux Mint08:53
ikoniaMonday: why ???08:53
JeffATLracho: it seems like a problem that may be common to any distro, evne gentoo08:53
ikoniaMonday: why would an install problem dictate "try mint"08:53
MordFustangikonia; https://wiki.umms.med.umich.edu/display/ET/9.+providing+RPi+sync+with+Dropbox+Server can you check crontab part08:53
ikoniathe plan is to understand the problem and help the user, not point them at a random distribution08:54
JeffATLikonia: <raises hand>08:54
subuWill linux mint load ubuntu?08:54
ikoniasubu: no, it's a totally different linux distribution08:54
backwardshah that confused me08:54
ikoniasubu: hence why Monday's advice makes no sense08:54
sububut i want ubuntu08:54
backwardsok then install ubuntu08:54
ikoniasubu: great, so state the problem, and work with people in the channel to see if they can help resolve your issues08:54
Mondaysubu, Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu with a Windows-like desktop08:54
ikoniaMonday: no it's nothing like windows08:55

backwardsactually i too had trouble installing mint on one of my PC's using a cd08:55
backwardsnever got it to work08:55
subuI tried with 12.04 and then with 1308:55
rachoJeffATL, problem is X1200 is bascially dead...08:55

rachofglrx does not support it08:55
subuI am trying to install ubuntu from usb . I am getting stuck at Net:Registered protocol family 1 - this is the problem08:56

Mondayikonia, no one was helping on here for over 10 minutes of asking so i'm trying to help him because i know that the Linux Mint installer worked fine08:56
JeffATLracho: it's like it's either windows or nothing for this thing08:56
subumonday: sorry i can't use mint08:57

netai have a problem with installing ubuntu- i have windows 7 and i'm trying to unstall ubuntu 12.04 in dual boot. i made a dok (don't have a cd rom). when i restart the computer i can enter the setup of the bios. when i enable UEFI Boot Support and then restart the computer see the usb and give me the screen where i can choose to install ubuntu (or run it without installing). so far so good- then when i choose to install i get a black screen, and09:02
ikoniasubu: so you have no usb hubs on your machine09:02
Mondayisn't there a schedule for ops to ensure that at least 3 ops are supporting the channel at any given time09:02
ikoniasubu: do you have a DVD drive ?09:02
subuI have 4 USB ports on my machine09:03

histo!nomodeset | neta09:03
ubottuneta: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter09:03
ikoniaMonday: ops are there to help the channel run smoothly09:03
ikoniasubu: that is frustrating as it looks like the common cause of your problem is down to the usb device09:03
ikoniasubu: I'm just doing a little more research09:03

rachosubu, what version of ubuntu are you installing?09:17
subuyea ikonia , my is an old pc09:17
subuhow to go past the acpi problem?09:17
VyrlokarHello everybody. I'm trying to setup a Vostro 3750 laptop that runs an Intel/nVidia Optimus setup under Xubuntu. If I add nomodeset to the kernel boot parameters, the system boots, but I'm restricted to 1024x768 resolution (actual screen resolution is 1600x900) and external monitors are disabled. If I remove it, I get initial output on both the build in and the external monitor, but it freezes during boot. I've tried using drm_kms_09:18
VyrlokarBy the way, if booting into nomodeset, I can optirun glxspheres and get 5x the FPS compared to normal glxspheres, and the nVidia driver (-304) loads correctly (I do lsmod on a second terminal console to check it)09:18
rachosubu, one shot is to try and update your BIOS firmware if your BIOS manufacturer even has some updates...09:18
subuikonia: How to get past the APCI problem?09:18
ikoniasubu: I don't think it is an apci problem for you09:18
VyrlokarAny hints on how to get this to work? I've been hammering at it for 2 days, and I'm at my wit's end09:18

VyrlokarAnyway, I believe that the issue is related to the intel card, because I'm not loading the nVidia card09:35

histonathanbz: why are you trying to put a pid file there?10:34
jribburg: so does the ACL get set correctly on children of that directory?  How about parents?10:34
nathanbzwhere else do you put them ?10:35
burgjrib, i only get that error message. that is the location of a web server's projects managed by ispconfig, actually what i am trying to do is give full access to one user i will be using with samba10:36
ItsMeLennywhat are other usb commands that can be run in terminal to get information on the device?10:36
jribburg: if you drop the recursive flag and pass a child of that directory, does it work ok?  What about a parent?10:36

njuergensburg, have you tried to check for the 'immutable' attribute via lsattr?10:40
njuergensispconfig uses the flag in its default config10:40
burgjrib, only a symlink to web110:40
burgnjuergens, i haven't. how do i check it?10:41
jribburg: lsattr /path/to/file10:41
Yu-YuHi, folks.10:42
burgnjuergens, jrib, http://codepad.org/gPEjqXXW - doesn't seem to be immutable. but not sure10:44
histoburg: not it's not10:44
jribburg: run it one directory up10:44
jribburg: (or use -d)10:44
burgjrib, one up has i flag10:45
jribburg: then that's the reason.  Good catch, njuergens.  Now you must figure out /why/10:45
Yu-Yusepero: Hi again.10:46
burgjrib, i suppose i can remove the immutable flag, but the new projects will also have it, right?10:46
njuergensburg, that is something you can control via ispconfig settings10:46
burgnjuergens, i am trying to find that setting, but with no success10:47

ikoniamikubuntu: got a PPA enabled by anychance.....11:19
ikoniamikubuntu: looks like a package version conflict11:19
Dr_Willismikubuntu:  if you definatly have the cd first.. then that would suggest that the cd was burnt badly and being ignored.11:20
ikoniamikubuntu: sorry, that was meant for aneesh_11:20
ikonianot you11:20
Dr_Willisikonia:  ;) i was wondering if i was confused ;P11:20
ikoniaaneesh_: do you have any PPA's on your system, it certainly looks like something has created a conflict11:20
ikoniaDr_Willis: no, I was just wrong, read the wrong line for the wrong nick11:21
Dr_Willisheh - i got weechat where it colorized the name/nicks and their text the same  now. :)11:21
ikoniaaneesh_: ok, so that's a very very likely reason for the cause11:21
mikubuntuDr_Willis: hmmmm ... so cfhowlett told me to do an md5sum the other day and it checked out -- but you're suggesting the actual burn might be bad?11:21

Yu-Yusepero: They broke my awesome xsession that it didn't work until I found what's the problem. Also, they surprisingly changed layout switching to Super+Space. Why, ever?…11:24
ikoniaaneesh_: I'd suggest using none unless you have confidence that the person who maintains it has a clue about what he's doing11:25
Yu-Yusepero: And until I got in a full GNOME Shell, I couldn't ever get they did the change.11:25

Yu-Yusepero: I don't think someone should do this work after another update.11:29
seperoYu-Yu: Me either. It's just not right11:29
Yu-Yusepero: It's just why I prefer to test things before they get to regular users. And that's why I'm on 13.10. Now you see?11:31
seperoYu-Yu: I see, but I say you will still like 12.04 better. In the end, you will want a system that just works easy11:32
Mondaywhat do i type to install xfce so that i can test it out, then what do i type to remove it after without removing the xfce stuff for lubuntu11:33
jrib!xubuntu | Monday11:33
ubottuMonday: Xubuntu is Ubuntu with Xfce as the desktop environment. More info at http://www.xubuntu.org/ - To install from Ubuntu: « sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop » - Join #xubuntu for support - See also: !Ubuntu and !Xubuntu-Channels11:33

seperoYu-Yu: You will be happy11:34
Mondayjrib, how would i remove it11:34
seperoMonday: the package to install is xubuntu-desktop11:35
Dr_Willisits harder to remove then install. ;)11:35
Yu-Yusepero: Why not everyone use 12.04 so, tell me?11:35
Dr_Willisthats the curse of 'meta-packages'11:35
jribMonday: apt-get remove the package11:36
seperoYu-Yu: Because they are confused  ;)11:36
Dr_Willisremoveing xubuntu-desktop wont automatically remove all teh stuff the meta package installed.. unless theres been some changes ive missed.11:36
jribMonday: you can use autoremove afterwards to remove any packages you don't need11:36
Dr_WillisMonday:  cleanest way to 'test' would be just to try xubuntu  live cd in virtualbox.11:37
Mondaysudo  apt-get autoremove xubuntu-desktop ?11:37
Yu-Yusepero: Are you using 12.04?11:37
seperoYu-Yu: yes, I am11:37
jribMonday: no.  apt-get remove xubuntu-desktop && apt-get autoremove11:37
jribMonday: maybe apt-get remove --auto-remove xubuntu-desktop, but I've never used this form11:38
Dr_Williserr.. I just did a 'apt-get remove kubuntu-desktop' then 'apt-get autoremove' and it dident remove anything with autoremove11:39
jribDr_Willis: depends on how kubuntu-desktop was installed11:39
Dr_Williswith apt-get install kubuntu-desktop   as far as i rember. ;)11:39

ikoniacablop: no such thing as recommended, you need to lock it down as tight as possible without causing a problem for the application you are running12:00

MonkeyDustplanete  here are some tips I picked up in this channel https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4653463/ubuntu_speed.txt12:12
Yu-Yucablop: Is what able to access files with 770 permissions??12:12
SwedeMikecablop: man chmod12:12
davis776how to update to 12.04.3 from 04.2?12:12
marianneBluesKaj: Ok noob question.... do digital outputs need special speakers or cables?12:13
bazhangdavis776, thats a downgrade12:13
gordonjcpdavis776: that happens when you just do normal updates12:13
Yu-Yumarianne: Probably, digital ones?12:13
bazhangwhoops misread12:13
SwedeMikedavis776: just do apt-get dist-upgrade12:13
gordonjcpmarianne: it depends what you're trying to connect to what12:13
jhutchinscablop: A good rule regarding permissions:  If you don't know what they should be, accept the defaults.  If you think you should change permissions on system files you probably shouldn't.12:13
marianneYu-Yu: figures, but it might be an option12:14
mariannegordonjcp: I just want 5.1 speakers12:14
Yu-Yumarianne: Honestly, there can be HDMI, SPDIF, opt or any other digital output, dear.12:15
gordonjcpmarianne: so what you'd have then is an amp with a 5.1 digital input, and a corresponding cable to your sound card's digital output12:15
davis776gordonjcp, I do but right now there is nothing to update and it still says im on 04.212:15
jhutchinsmarianne: digital output can't go directly to a speaker or headphone, it needs to go to a digital decoder.  Some speaker systems use this, most don't.12:15
cablopjhutchins: the problem is the permissions are not the default... i rescued some files form an old disk, so all of they ended being 775 with my users and group there... i am setting up a file server, so i need to chage tose permissions12:15
Yu-Yumarianne: Probably, also, it won't work until you connect the whole pack of jacks to your card's output.12:15
jhutchinscablop: 1) Understand what the numbers mean, 2) Set permissions as appropriate for your tasks.12:16
cablopjhutchins: i know what tose numbers means... but i wonder one thing 770 will block "system" to access those files (something i saw happening in other os) and does root still have access to those files?12:17
classicchinsany macbook users here ?12:17
gordonjcpcablop: root has always got read and write access to everything12:17
classicchinsi need some help12:17
ActionParsnipclassicchins: probably a few12:17
gordonjcp!help | classicchins12:17
ubottuclassicchins: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience12:17
BluesKajmarianne, if the digital output is coaxial then you use regular rca analog type connection , if it's optical then you need a afibre optic cable connecter12:17
cablopgordonjcp, thanks... and about "system"?12:18
marianneSo, when it comes down to it, my best bet might be to look for speakers that support digital if I want to use the card, but just regular speakers for the on board?12:18
gordonjcpcablop: what do you mean "system"?12:18
marianneBluesKaj: it''s optical12:18
cablopthe operative system itself, in windows is there such concept, and you can even restrict access to a file to the system, i wonder what permissions the system in ubuntu uses12:19
BluesKajmarianne, is there an analog output (probly says "speakers" ) ?12:19
cablopgordonjcp:  the operative system itself, in windows is there such concept, and you can even restrict access to a file to the system, i wonder what permissions the system in ubuntu uses12:20
zoombinido all linux os's use the same kernel12:20
Yu-Yuzoombini: I guess Google helps better with that.12:20
gordonjcpcablop: I don't know anything about Windows, never used it12:20
marianneBluesKaj: yes, enough for a 5.1 set up on the on board and the card12:20
gordonjcpzoombini: no12:20
classicchinsmac users, please ping me12:20
foo2who should own the files inside the .gnupg folder?12:20
BluesKajzoombini, no they don't12:20
jhutchinscablop: In that sense, "system" is the same as "root".12:20
cablopzoombini: with a few different flags|options|modules enabled... yes12:20
MonkeyDustYu-Yu  read the !google factoid, please12:20
zoombiniso mint and ubuntu dont12:20
jhutchinscablop: Certain servers like apache run as apache, and therefore need user permissions to access a file.12:21
zoombinijust kernel.com only has like 4 kernels but not the one for mint12:21
cablopjhutchins: yep, here is www-data12:21
jhutchinsclassicchins: No one can help you unless you state the problem clearly.12:21
BluesKajmarianne, did you have the onboard sound working previous to buying the pci card ?12:21
Silver_Arrowthe kernels tend to be similar, and run the same programs if complied for that system12:22
marianneBluesKaj: entirely new build12:22
cablopjhutchins, gordonjcp, good to know that... that makes things easier... now i just need to design a file acces policy here12:22
gordonjcpcablop: you probably don't12:23

holsteinkarab44: its all open, and literally anything is possible, in theory.. what do i suggest? teamviewer if you need remote through a firewall simply.. or, just try the defaults locally... vino vinagre..13:57
holsteinkarab44: you may use RDP in ubuntu13:57
JamoBoxIt's like whatever process is used to run the ubuntu desktop is not running13:58
holsteinkarab44: VNC *is* a standard.. assuming you want to do VNC13:58
karab44So isn't VNC and RDP acronyms?13:58
newbie834holstein: no, i tried to find such an option in system preferences or power mgmt, but was not able to find it13:58
holsteinkarab44: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Network_Computing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_Desktop_Protocol13:59
compdocvnc4server is great, but Ive been switching to x11rpd, which is better. unfortunately, isnt x11 going away in the future?14:00
holsteinnewbie834: one thing you might want to consider is, if you prefer the main ubuntu, you might want to use it.. if you are just coming to xubuntu, maybe just give your self some time with the specific tools.. what you are trying to do is possible, if the hardware supports it14:00
karab44so basicly I see that vino is installed in ubuntu by default, I don't really want to rubbish my system with many different tools that does same thing14:00
karab44If vino isn't enough Ill try this vnc4server and x11rdp14:01
newbie834holstein: it was working before the version upgrade, since it's 13.04 (?) it does not work anymore...14:01
karab44anyway compdoc holstein thank you very much.14:02
holsteinnewbie834: if ubuntu 12.04 and xubuntu 12.04 worked, and xubuntu 13.04 s not working, it could be hardware support related then..14:02
ezra-sanonee, forget network tools to verify processes, I ran the same tool and I do see that ? process too14:02
ezra-sit's like using nmap to diagnose a c++ issue14:02
JamoBoxany ideas on my desktop issue? what is the program that runs the ubuntu desktop called?14:02
holsteinnewbie834: dont assume that you can implement this feature (easily, at least) in 13.04.. consider using 12.04, or, keep looking around for someone with your specific hardware.. i like to try the terminal command and see if there is any helpful output there.. to make sure the option is possible14:03
holsteinJamoBox: you say "everything was fine til i forced power off" correct?14:03
JamoBoxYes, I should mention that the force power-off was due to the reason that it was stuck on a purple screen for around 20mins on startup14:04
JamoBoxafter that it booted up fine, but with this issue14:04
padhuUbuntians, any one using qgis? please gudie me to purchase good GPS marking device which should working with QGIS.14:04
holsteinJamoBox: that is *not* fine.. but, you must entertain what can happen with a force poweroff, and not assume this is a desktop issue14:05
MonkeyDustpadhu  how is that ubuntu related?14:05
newbie834holstein: yep, the problem rises here, that i'm a newbie user, as shows my nickname, so i guess the terminal command version will not work since unfortunately i don't know what to type in... :(14:05
holsteinJamoBox: if it were me, i would test the hardware a bit.. address why the machine 'froze".. i would look at testing the filesystem, ect14:05
padhuMonkeyDust: I am using in Ubuntu 12.04, that's why asking...;-)14:05
karab44okay I see that ubuntu has builtin vnc server, a bit hidden :). Why ubuntu is so shy? :)14:06
JamoBoxholstein: What you you mean by testing?14:06
holsteinnewbie834: http://askubuntu.com/questions/1792/how-can-i-suspend-hibernate-from-command-line are some options14:06
karab44what port should I open? Is it standard port for VNC?14:06
newbie834holstein: thanks, i shall start at the forum14:06
holsteinJamoBox: i mean, forcing power down, as i said, can damage the hard drive, or the filesystem.. so you test for that, since the desktop was (i am reading) fine before the force shutdown14:06
padhuMonkeyDust: I know that ubuntu-offtapic may be the right place, even though most ubuntu users are here :-)14:07
JamoBoxholstein: thanks, but how do I go about 'testing' it?14:07
JamoBoxnautilus seems to be working fine if that's what you mean14:07
holsteinJamoBox: then, i am misunderstanding you.. the way i read it, you cant get to a desktop.. are you are saying14:08
anoneeezra-s ummm if you say so... dunno I hope you're right, however, as I told you, ppl have screenshots and this process is not showing in their screenshots :( but I'll convince myself there's no problem...14:08
foo2anyone here uses seahorse?14:08
holsteinnautilus seems fine.. what *exactly* is the issue JamoBox ?14:08
JamoBoxalthough when launching from terminal, I get a "cannot open usershare directory" error14:09
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 reboot14:09
karab44what about this X11 ssh forwarding? Does it have anything common with VNC?14:10
JamoBoxholstein: Allow me to describe in greater detail. The nunity bar and the top panel are present, xorg is fine and I'm not at a black terminal. The issue is, where the wallpapaer would normally be is black, there are no desktop icons, I cannot see any graphical drag selection when left MB dragging on desktop, and there is no right click dropdown on desktop14:10
holsteinkarab44: its not vnc.. that is what it says.. forwarding an application via ssh14:10
JamoBoxwhich is what led me to believe it's something to do with the desktop service14:10
=== caf4926 is now known as _caf4926
karab44Now I am confused14:12
holsteinJamoBox: sure.. but, you say this is due to a force shutdown.. so at some point, you should consider what that can do to your hardware.. what would i do? test as a new user or as the guest user.. if all is "fine" then the issue is likely in the user /home config..14:12
newbie834holstein: thanks, i could assign to the sleep key the "pmi action suspend" command, it works (Y)14:12
JamoBoxholstein: Thanks, I'll try that out.14:12
holsteinkarab44: if you want to forward an application, forwarding an applictaion over ssh will do that.. if you want to forward a desktop over vnc, vnc does that14:12
karab44So ubuntu offers me RDP, 143 VNC servers and X11 ssh forwarding. Which one is the best?14:12
holsteinnewbie834: then, the hardware is capable of sleep. you can do *many* things from this point, including just putting that command in a terminal14:13
JamoBoxholstein: I tested as a guest user and everything is fine there. No issues at all. What should I look for in my home folder to address this issue then?14:13
karab44give me a second... I have to get my thoughts together14:13
OerHekskarab44, choose a service that does not send your password in plain text ;-)14:13
holsteinkarab44: "best" is a matter of opinion and use case, friend.. which one suits your needs? all are free to try, including the commercial option i mentioned, teamviewer.. and also freenx14:14
newbie834holstein: i knew that my pc was able to sleep. :) my problem was only that this hotkey assignment has been lost. now it works :)14:14
holsteinJamoBox: you can try http://www.webupd8.org/2012/10/how-to-reset-compiz-and-unity-in-ubuntu.html .. if you have no idea what to change, you can literally move *eveything* out of the user home.. and test.. i am talking about the hidden folders with .config in from of them14:15
=== amal is now known as CatMan

CatMan4GB DDR314:18

eSoulit could be that easy15:17
AaruniMacroMan: 'rm -r temp'15:18
AarunieSoul: all right, checking that15:18
MacroManAaruni, Same thing15:18
AaruniMacroMan: not really. -R and -r are different15:18
Aarunior, rmdir temp15:18
ceqjhutchins: where in the troubleshooting can I find the point to look for the boot section?15:19
MacroManAh, cool. Didn't know about rmdir15:19
MacroManStill have this argument problem, but I'll come back to it if it's still a problem later.15:19
AarunieSoul, jhutchins : should I try this : http://dvisagie.blogspot.in/2012/08/fix-ssh-y-with-other-macs-osx-108.html15:20
MacroManAaruni, I didn't mean -r and -R are the same thing, I meant it still doesn't pass the argument on as it should.15:20
AaruniMacroMan: oh sorry, didn't realise that15:21
MacroManSee: http://pastie.org/828370515:21
eSoulAaruni:  That is making sure your xauth is installed and in the right places15:21
Aarunialso, MacroMan, it seems -R and -r are the same thing. although chmod doesn't respond to -r...15:21
AarunieSoul: so, should I try it ?15:21
MacroManAaruni, I always use -R for rm as that's what the man page states.15:22
eSoulAaruni: You gotta make sure xauth is installed first15:22

cpinedI have Lubuntu 12.04 installed on it...the last time I used the laptop was about a year15:48
cpinednow I tried using it again..but the wireless is no longer working.15:49
cpinedit just says that it is requesting a network address15:49
cpinedit says "Requesting a wireless network address for ..."15:49
cpinedit is able to detect my wifi network, but it does not connect.15:51
baphomet111cpined, has your router changed? does your wifi nic support the channel it is on?15:53
baphomet111is there much interference in the area?15:53
cpinedit is a new router15:54
cpinedall of my other still work15:54
cpinedhow do I know if my wifi nic supports the channel?15:54
baphomet111cpined, just because your other devices still work doens't mean your at least 1 year old device works.15:54
baphomet111first of all, are we talking 2.4 or 5ghz?15:55
cpinedI did change the channel per the tech support because of issues with my blu-ray player15:55

clue_hnewhite, but also you can inspect from the terminal with dmidecode16:38
jcgsnewhite: lspci in terminal as well16:38
holsteinkarab44: its not a remote desktop.. it forwards a destkop session, which might be preferred.. or not16:39
karab44holstein: vino is very slow and I can not login without existing session so in my opinion it is very best.16:39
karab44*not very best16:39
holsteinkarab44: its not the same technology.. so its not fair to compare16:39
newhitejcgs, thanks I just entered that and receive the list I am looking for.16:39
njuergenstgunr, you could try 'sudo chmod u+s /usr/bin/screen' however generally suid-root is considered to be a security risk16:40
jcgsnewhite: no worries :)16:40

karab44holstein: okay, never mind. Don't compare technologies. I have requirements, yes? I need to startup and login remotely my PC. It's good when screen is quite smooth but most important are like I mentioned.16:41

njuergenstgunr, did you forget the '/' maybe? screen -x davec/16:44
karab44holstein: look what I found NX allows users to create new X11 sessions and forwards all X communication to the remote client.16:45
karab44 16:45
karab44VNC simply forwards what a logged in user sees on the desktop similar to how video would be transmitted.16:45

JuJuBeebut not for all requests... that is what really confuses me18:50
XLVthe previous one was unavailable18:50
ikoniaJuJuBee: is it locked per site, or random requests, eg: some sites always fail, or some sites work, then fail, then work18:50
JuJuBeeseems to be locked18:50
ikoniaJuJuBee: so it's locked to certain sites working/failing18:50
BluesKajJuJuBee, have you set your nameserver , default gateway, domain gateway etc in ,  /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base ? because it writes the /etc/resolv.conf file . which you need to connect18:51
ikoniaJuJuBee: that's to be either a proxy or a device further down the network redirecting you, as there is a re-write rule happening there, not just a wrong ip18:51
ikoniaJuJuBee: it's doing http->https - that's something doing a redirect18:52

JuJuBeeBluesKaj: 10.04 LTS19:00
usr13!10.04 | JuJuBee19:01
ubottuJuJuBee: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) was the twelfth release of Ubuntu.  Desktop support ended May 9 2013. Server support continues. See http://ubottu.com/y/lucid for more details.19:01
usr13JuJuBee: So your problem is internet connection?19:01
BluesKajno wonder  JuJuBee . ok then make sure your /etc/resolv.conf settings are correct19:01
JuJuBeeBluesKaj: right, my external interface has to be set to dhcp (according to my isp) in order to get the reservation properly.19:02
BluesKajyeah , that's set in your interfaces file, JuJuBee19:02
JuJuBeeBluesKaj: they seem to be, using the nameservers of my isp and domain and search are my isp19:02
JuJuBeeusr13: not sure, I can get to some sites, but not all...19:03

JuJuBeeI can use links2 and get to google.com fine, but not firefox19:05
mapi installed ubuntu 13.04 and my rtlink2800 worked during setup boot into OS and now it doesn't work =[ dunno what to do19:05
JuJuBeeusr13: yes19:05
mapralink sorry19:05
usr13JuJuBee: grep nameserver /etc/resolv.conf   #What IP do you see there?  (Is it a valid nameserver.)19:06
green_geeky_dude<- reckons the ISP has balked on it's DNS - might want to try setting your router to use OpenDNS (just my 2 pennies)19:06
UbuntivityThey say I shouldn't repeat my question, but I just asked if it is possible to use a system-wide proxy on ubuntu?19:06
JuJuBeeusr13: I see the isp nameserver and they are valid19:06
clue_hUbuntivity, you can in settings,network19:07
JuJuBeeI may try to boot from a live CD / flash and test, and maybe try to upgrade again.  Last fall I tried to upgrade to 12.04 but had trouble seeing my NIC's19:07
UbuntivityThanks clue_h, I didn't have a clue :)19:07
usr13JuJuBee: One entry or two?19:07
JuJuBeeusr13: two19:07
usr13JuJuBee: What is the first one?19:08
clue_hUbuntivity, its just chilling there out of sight in the settings section lol then its network proxy19:08
Ubuntivityclue_h: Will that proxy apply to all the programs used? Such as the commandline weechat?19:08
usr13JuJuBee: So what sites can you not get to?  (Give us an example.)19:08
JuJuBeebut I can get to https://www.google.com19:09
clue_hUbuntivity, it should do yes19:09

holsteinyeah.. i would load up a live CD, and when it works fine, JuJuBee , you'll know its something to do with your install19:13

thurstylarkholstein: is there a server specific version of this kind of page? I think I mainly need to troubleshoot my server...19:14
JuJuBeeThanks for the help to all....19:14
JuJuBeeGotta run19:14

BluesKajstill think it's his ISPdns that's mucked up19:15
holsteinBluesKaj: could be..19:16
green_geeky_dudeIt's his ISP causing the problem since I did a scan he us running an ftp, web site and a mysql database all open to the net19:16
usr13holstein: BluesKaj: Why would he be able to go to a site with one browser and not another, if it is the ISP?19:16
holsteinmaybe in the config, links is looking elsewhere for dns by default..19:17
BluesKajthe ISP may have filters or it's a vpn type setup ,not sure19:17
usr13green_geeky_dude: You did a port scan on his IP address?19:17
usr13green_geeky_dude: Those services may belong to his ISP and not him.19:18
green_geeky_dudesomehow after seeing what I saw (now closed) I doubt it19:18
Captain_ProtonAnyone in here play left 4 dead on linux? If so did they fix the mic problem in the game yet?19:20
BluesKajgreen_geeky_dude, did you do a traceroute then scan the last IP ?19:20
usr13green_geeky_dude: Ok, you're probably right.  (And that may be why he left, because he saw that someone was doing port scans against his IP.)  ;)19:20
holsteinCaptain_Proton: i would ask the game dev's for support.. is it a steam game?19:20
holstein!steam | Captain_Proton if so19:20
ubottuCaptain_Proton if so: Valve have officially announced that they are developing Steam and are working with !ubuntu during their development, see http://blogs.valvesoftware.com/linux/steamd-penguins/ for further details, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Valve for install instructions, you can also join #ubuntu-steam for discussion.19:20
green_geeky_dudeBlues - full sweep19:20
Captain_Protonk thanks19:21
green_geeky_dudeusr13 could well be - but I feel his ISP is causing him problems due to what he is doing together with a few faults on his own settings - I hope he sorts it out though19:21
thurstylarkcan anyone explain to me the difference between localip and remoteip options as listed in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PPTPServer/ ?19:21
j__hi... my data manger always opens in the top left... where can I change that into mid?19:22
usr13green_geeky_dude: I guess it's possible but do not see why he can use one browser and get to a site and not another. (Although the one he said he could get to the site with was a text only browser, right?)19:22
holsteinthurstylark: whats the question?19:22
holsteinusr13: the one that could access was links19:23
holstein!info links219:23
ubottulinks2 (source: links2): Web browser running in both graphics and text mode. In component universe, is optional. Version 2.7-1ubuntu1 (raring), package size 1909 kB, installed size 2934 kB19:23
green_geeky_dudeusr13 - without knowing his full setup it would be hard for any of us to answer that - but I would love to try and figure out the puzzle19:23
OerHeksthurstylark, remote ip would be your (outside)IP from your ISP, lokal IP is your IP in your network 192.168.x.x19:24
OerHeksor 10.x.x.x19:24
thurstylarkholstein: I'm not quite understanding what each option asigns ips to what. I'm also confused as to what is local and what is remote.19:24
thurstylarkOerHeks: so, I would have to know my public IP?19:25
usr13green_geeky_dude: Me too.  BTW, I've use links, but not links2.  Is links2 also text only?19:25
holsteinthurstylark: you can google "whats my ip"19:25
holsteinthurstylark: you would need to know that, to connect back in.. and forward ports.. or, as i had setup, something like dyndns to forward a name to the ip19:25
Dr_Willislinks2 - Web browser running in both graphics and text mode19:25
green_geeky_dudeI haven't used links2 - but from what I just read YES it's the same just a few more bells and whistles19:25
OerHeksthurstylark, yes, as lokal ip is only available from within your network, but you can make it reachable by port forwarding.19:26

thurstylarkOerHeks, holstein: The problem with that is that I have a dynamic ip from my isp. that is assigned directly to my router, and everything (including my server) is on it's local network.

Fellowsnot at the moment20:35
Lequtixoh ok20:36
FellowsI can't type in terminal therefore i can't use weechat20:36
Fellowsis there a way to reset everything20:36
Lequtixwhen you say you can't type in terminal, are you saying that the terminal opens but the cursor doesn't move?  or does it mean you can't actually launch a terminal20:36
Lequtixtry gnome-terminal20:37
Fellowsi am able to launch it20:37

Lequtixtypically you can' always get the terminals ALT-F2 etc20:56
marcooi dont have keyboard lights, this is a laptop20:56
loulanmarcoo: he means that your ram is dead20:56

Dr_Willisjerome_:  so you are following some of the MultiSeatX guides like   https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MultiseatX  ?21:05
Lequtixjerome_ wants to make a mainframe21:06
Lequtixthe best way to do that is just to use xwindows through an ssh connection21:06
Lequtixon another pc21:06
Lequtixlike a unix terminal server21:06
Dr_WillisHes using 1 pc with 2 monitors, 2 keyboards and 2 mice. It should be doable. but may take some work.  I recall some other disrtos having better support for multiseatX.    Aparently LightDM has support for the feature in ubuntu.21:08
jerome_Dr_Willis:How did you do?21:09
Dr_Willisjerome_:  i havent. I just recall reading up on it. I also recall there being some usb-adaptors out that  let you have 4+ multi seat setups on the same pc via usb ports.21:09
Dr_Willisi recall that fedora had verygood spport for multi seat.21:10
joepfarleyI'm having a problem with all of my browsers on Ubuntu, firefox and midori segmentation faults and chromium goes "Aw, Snap". Firefox and Chromium both do this so frequently that it's unusable. For firefox I've tried a new profile but it behaves the same. It works under safe mode so I disabled every single plugin and extension, but it crashes still without any extensions. I ran a memtest and it came out without errors. I assumed that it was21:10
joepfarley a false positive so I tried both of my ram sticks indivicually but the problem contiued. I've done fresh installs of Ubuntu 12.04 and it happens then. I experience the problem under Unity, Gnome, and XFCE. I tried the recently released Elementary OS with their desktop environment and the problem continues. I even swapped out the hard drive and did a fresh install on that but I keep having the problem. I'm at a complete loss as to where to21:10

Dr_Willisjerome_:  some neat info  (not ubuntu specific) -> https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg_multiseat21:11
Dr_WillisHow long did you run the memtest for jerome_ ?21:11

mojtabaDr_Willis: Thanks, but do you know somewhere else which explains better and simpler?21:16
Dr_Willismojtaba:  which part?21:16
Dr_Willismir and wayland are replacements for the X server.21:16
Dr_Willisthats the core of it all.21:17

GH0Is there any way to fix this error to recover files that are on the drive? http://pastebin.com/ZehseZi5 I cloned the drive and then fsck'ed it with fsck -yft ext4 /path, however the original drive is completely browseable, after fsck'ing this cloned drive is completely unable to mount. Is there a good way to go about fixing the error in the pastebin?21:31
Dr_Williswhat command did you use to clone the drive?21:32
GH0Dr_Willis, I used "dd if=/dev/sdc of=/dev/sdf bs=4096 conv=notrunc,sync21:33
Dr_Willisif the original drive had read errors  - you might have wanted to use ddrescue21:34
Dr_Willisi tend to clone each partion into a file on a bigger hd. then try to recover from that file.21:34
GH0I had someone recommend me to use ddrescue, but, I am not very familiar with that command. Even the command he gave me had errors that wouldn't allow it to run properly.21:35
GH0Let me see if I still have it installed21:35
Dr_Willisone of ddrescues main features it it can (and you should use) a log file. so you can run it several times, and potentially recover bad  data from earlier attempts.21:36

SubCooli know im not being comprehensable with that statement -= but its confusing. it was working until i updated my system.21:49
Dr_Willishotmedal_:  nukeing X would close out all the X session/apps and most lilkely go back to the login screen21:50

daftykinsor -h 022:02
Dr_WillisSubCool:  you got some hardware error message or somthing flooding dmesg?22:03
Dr_WillisOins:  theres the 'poweroff' command also22:03

SubCooland now when i plug my iphone into my computer for power, it wont stop flashing the notifications section. it just keeps popping up and down.22:04
Oinssame with the "halt" command. only shutdown -P and poweroff works22:04
Oinsbtw. 12.04 LTS server Version22:04
lorundrikYe, hmm.22:05
LittleTHi !22:06
Oinsi mean, what's the different between halt and poweroff? I thought both are shutting down (completely) the system22:06
lorundrikyou could use this, "shutdown -h -P now"22:07
lorundrikthen it will halt and power off22:07
daftykinsor you could just choose the correct command first22:09
lorundrikor that :)22:09

SubCoolDr_Willis, well, i want to use the fingerprinter scanner, but it appears to be going nuts. Its STILL installing instances of it..22:10
Oinslorundrik: yes, but the problem is, that the most automatic scripts (like checkshutdown.sh, acpi/powerbtn.sh aso.) use the "shutdown -h ..." command. So I have to change all this scripts. And I fear, that after an update, I have to chance it again...22:11
Dr_Willishad a webcam on a laptop that was bad once. keept filling up dmesg logs with  finding/adding/so forth..22:11
daftykinsSubCool: i could probably bypass that thing with a piece of sellotape and the last drink glass you held22:11
Dr_Willisi couldent even use the console for the clutter22:11

super8Dr_Willis, 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) this22:26

killagatorhi- how do i change admin in ubuntu 12.04lts?22:27
Dr_Williskillagator:  change it to what?22:27
super8Dr_Willis,  i checked on ubuntu forum, i did sudo apt-get install mesa-utils and then glxinfo | grep direct22:27
super8and i think it works.22:27
Dr_Willissuper8:  in my experience . with intel hardware. you dont really need to mess with any drivers - they are all included by default22:28
killagatorno, i have a user and i want to give him total admin rights22:28
killagatorhow to that please?22:28
super8but i still doubt that my graphic card is working well. while scrolling in a browser, its lagging.22:28
super8other than that, everything is working just fine.22:28
Dr_WillisUnless its a really new intel video card. Intel does have some  sort of driver-installer tool at some site.22:28
SubCoolOk- so - http://fcns.eu/2012/04/29/fingerprint-reader/ has helped me attempt usage. But- its own issues are preventing it from actual usage. WHY would this device continually re-(whatever) on dmesg.22:28
Dr_Williskillagator:  add them to the sudo group i belive.22:28
Dr_Williskillagator:  i bet askubuntu.com has details on how to do it for the differnt releases22:29
killagatoryes - how do i do that? i have been using ubuntu all but 2 days22:29
Dr_Willisthe users setting tool has a check box i belive is the easiest way22:29

Dr_Willisuser acoubnts -> change the account type to be admin22:30
super8no its not new Dr_Willis22:30
wilee-nileeKillagator, when you make a user with user you can make them a admin, otherwise ad them to sudo with visudo22:30
super8but why its lagging while srolling in the browser22:30
killagatorand what code do i use exactly22:30
Dr_Willissuper8:  could be its a rather low end card.  or theres flash playing in the browser sucking down stuff22:30
wilee-nileeOr change as i see  now22:30
killagatori am currently in the admin acct but would like to add a user i set up yesterday as an admin22:30
Dr_Williskillagator: System Settings -> user acounts -> change the account type to be admin22:30
super8okay thanks.22:31
killagatori don't see that option22:31
killagatoronly unlock22:31
Dr_Willisso unlock the tool.22:31
killagatori did22:31
killagatorand now?22:31
Dr_Willisclick on the user, to change. then then clck on their account type...22:32
killagatoronly options are  automatic login22:32
Dr_Willisaccount type:  has a pull down menu for me.22:32
killagatornot in 12.04lts22:32
killagatorit seems22:32
Dr_WillisNo idea. I dont use LTS.22:33
Dr_Willisthats why i suggested looking at askubuntu.com  they proberly have guides for each release as to how to do it.22:33
killagatorok i'll try that -thx22:33
SubCoolk- im back.. - I think its just because im using Kubuntu 13. i may have to downgrade to 12.0422:35

Dr_Willisi alwys considered fingerprint readsers to be.. well..  a sad gimmic ;)22:38

SubCoolyeah.. but they are cool22:38
SubCoolits nice to just swipe a finger and login22:38

wilee-nileetex_, That is off topic and no religious posts as well.22:58
romistrubI tried dhcp3, sorry, mistype22:58
daftykinsABOVE. THAT.22:59
tex_why not wilee-nilee?22:59
wilee-nileetex_, read the coc of the channels you post on.22:59

romistrubam I missing one? I tried all three...23:00
tex_but meanwhile take a taste of gods glory and feel the iternal life23:00
daftykinsromistrub: is it dhcp3-server you installed?23:00
daftykinswhat OS is this? version?23:00
romistrubdaftykins: ubunto 12.0423:01
romistrubhaha... ubuntu... wow23:01
daftykinsah we only support ubuntu in here :P23:01
arandurWhat is it that determines that my Ubuntu machineboots into tty7 automatically?23:01
romistrubI must be missing something...23:01
arandurRather, how does my machine know to boot into tty7 as opposed to tty1?23:02
daftykinsromistrub: "cd /etc/init.d" then hit d followed by tab, to see what's called dhcp in there23:02
green_geeky_dudeThe smurfs did it23:02
arandurAnd how do I change whatever setting that is?23:02
daftykinsromistrub: or "ls /etc/init.d/dhcp*"23:02
wilee-nileearandur, Why does it matter?23:02
arandurI would like to boot into tty1 automatically, without having to manually start my GUI on tty7.23:03
wilee-nileearandur, What is the end goal here, you would manually from tty1 as well23:03
romistrubdaftykins: no such file or directory23:03
arandurTo put it another way, I would like my GUI to start up automatically in teh background, on tty7, while I am deposited on tty1.23:03
romistrubI have a dhcpd.conf file open right now for editing... its location is /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf23:03
daftykinsromistrub: from which?23:04
arandurSo far, all my searching has shown me how to boot into tty1, but sacrificing the automatic GUI start.23:04
arandurI would not like to make that sacrifice.23:04
wilee-nileearandur, Never seen that option myself, probably possible, not sure why you would want that, and be sure to use nicks here.23:04
daftykinsarandur: why is pressing one keyboard combo such a hardship at boot?23:04
romistrubdaftykins: don't understand your question23:04
SubCoolok.. so- how do i disable the hardware device, there is no option for it in the bios23:05
arandurwille-nilee: Thanks; I forgot my irc manners.23:05
daftykinsromistrub: well i gave two things and you gave me an error message, i don't know which23:05
arandurdaftykins: It's not a hardship, but I was under the impression that Linux was build on the virtue of configurability.23:05
wilee-nileelol no biggie, tab complete does it best.23:05
arandurdaftykins: What are we, if we cannot optimize away keystrokes?23:05
romistrubsorry... for the ls/etc/init.d/dhcp*"23:05
arandurwilee-nilee: So it does! Again, thank you.23:05
wilee-nileeno prob arandur23:06
daftykinsi never have sympathy for laziness23:06
romistrubarandur: speaking of which, how do I switch to chrome by pressing "0" on my numberpad from any client?23:06
romistrubdaftykins: it's automation... it's what computers are built on...23:06
daftykinsi disagree23:07
arandurdaftykins: Shall I also compute logarithms by consulting the tables?23:07
romistrubdaftykins: have you heard the term "don't repeat yourself"?23:07
daftykinsthat's apples to oranges23:07
Flannelarandur: I don't have the new grub, so I'm not entirely sure how it works now, but you should be able to configure which tty is the default (it used to be in grub configs, I imagine it's similar now)23:07
arandurdaftykins: I don't mean to be rude, but I honestly don't understand the philosophy you're espousing. It is alien to my experience.23:07
romistrubit's not about being lazy, it's about automating repetitive tasks23:07
daftykinsofftopic chat in #ubuntu-offtopic thanks23:08
daftykinsarandur: perhaps you should move on23:08
arandurFlannel: It wasn't in /etc/default/grub; are there other grub configs?23:08
romistrubanyways... back to business23:08
romistrubstill no luck with my dhcpd... doesn't want to listen on the right interface23:09
wilee-nileearandur, gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub  is where you modify grub, and run a grub-update then.23:09
daftykinsromistrub: is it dhcp3-server you installed? (for the second time)23:10
arandurwilee-nilee: Thanks, but there wasn't an option there to do what I'm looking for -- at least, not that I saw. I was able to boot to console, but I had to sacrifice the automatic GUI start.23:10
wilee-nileearandur, this line is your mod place GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="ipv6.disable=1 quiet splash"23:10
romistrubtried ls /etc/init.d/dhcp*23:10
wilee-nileethere is a text addition not sure the exact words arandur23:10
arandurwilee-nilee: The 'ipv6.disable=1' bit is new to me. I'll try that.23:10
romistrubdaftykins: isc-dhcp-server23:11
arandurwilee-nilee: Thank you for your help.23:11
wilee-nileearandur, Yeah I have no ipv6 so I stop at the door23:11
romistrubdaftykins: but the instructions listend dhcpd.conf as its config file, so I'm assuming it's intimately related to dhcpd23:11
daftykinsromistrub: run "dhcpd -t"23:12

lukasstrdaftykins: ubuntu 13.4 and recovery23:33
daftykinsbut is it GRUB that's prompting for the OS choice?23:33
lukasstrthink so - in header there is Grub-2.......23:33
daftykinsmaybe you've just got a timeout value and no default set?23:34
lukasstrdont know what you mean by this23:34
lukasstrwant me to say* (sry for my english ;) )23:35
daftykinsyou might need to set a default OS and change the boot timeout to 0 to stop it asking you23:35
