LeinardoSmith_I am trying to allow my self to SePrintOperatorPrivalege but I keep on getting:00:06
LeinardoSmith_Could not connect to server localhost Connection failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED00:06
LeinardoSmith_I am using this command:00:06
LeinardoSmith_net -S localhost -U root rpc rights grant root SePrintOperatorPrivalege00:06
LeinardoSmith_any ideas?00:07

nomnom213how many people are actually using ubuntu to connect to this chatroom pm me in privat00:08
ikonianomnom213: no need for pm's00:08
ikonianomnom213: no need for polls either00:08
LeinardoSmith_no one knows how to resolve this? NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED00:09
ikoniaLeinardoSmith_: well, no context, but that looks like a samba error, or an error from a windows AD domain00:09
LeinardoSmith_I am using this command:00:09
LeinardoSmith_net -S localhost -U root rpc rights grant root SePrintOperatorPrivalege00:09
ikoniacommon with bad samba setup00:09
LeinardoSmith_because I am trying to use cupsaddsmb00:10
LeinardoSmith_but I keep on getting: WERR_ACCESS_DENIED00:10
LeinardoSmith_on the last step00:10
osolusI have a major problem, my new mediacenter pc only lets me plug in an extra monitor when windows is running, but if I use linux - no matter what driver I use - the system crashes whenever I try to use two monitors.00:10
ikoniaLeinardoSmith_: well, that looks like your local samba server is rejecting you, probably because there is no such thing as "root" user in samba, unless you set on up00:10
LeinardoSmith_ikonia I tried adding root using smbpasswd00:11
ikoniaLeinardoSmith_: I'd confirm your authentication is working first - then move onto tasks such as this00:11
LeinardoSmith_ok what would you suggest?00:13
ikoniaconfirming your authentication is working, then trying to do things such as set roles00:14
mojtabaHi, Does anybody here know how can I scan with mfc-j435w in ubuntu?00:14
ikoniagetting "access denied" suggests your basic auth is failing00:14
nurowUbuntu's default zip/rar manager seems really crappy. Is there any of them that have a better interface?00:14
ikoniaconfirm thats working first00:14
LeinardoSmith_ok how would I do that?00:15
ikoniasmbclient perhaps00:15
LeinardoSmith_could we move this to pm? (as I think it might take a little while)00:15
ikoniasorry no, I'm about to leave.00:15
LeinardoSmith_ok could you walk me through00:15
Ljubehow to hide my ip here?00:15
ikoniaLjube: ask in #freenode00:16
ikoniaLeinardoSmith_: man smbclient00:16
ikoniaLeinardoSmith_: look for the auth options and run some basic connection queries to prove authentication works00:16

skegeekJust installed as a dual-boot with Windows 8, however, there isn't an entry in boot menu to launch Ubuntu instead of Windows.00:36
esehi, i install ubuntu 12.04 x64 along with win 7 home premium., i check my hard drive and i have two new partitions (before i only have 2), so ubuntu is installed, but now does not showme grub menu, any ideas?00:49
Dr_Willisskegeek:  which boot menu> You mean in GRUB?00:49
eseyes, goes directly in windows00:50
Dr_Willisskegeek:  or did you do a WUBI install and are using the windows boot thing?00:50
ubottuGRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub200:50
Dr_Willisthe boot-repair tool from a live cd - is the easy way to fix most grub issues00:50
skegeekNo, Windows boot menu.01:03
skegeekI didn't over-write incase something went wrong, which has happened before.01:04
Dr_Willisthe windows boot menu cant boot ubuntu as far as i know. it can do wubi.01:06
Dr_Willisyou could install grub to a usb flash drive and use that to boot the ubuntu install i guess if you ar really worried about it01:06
skegeekIt has to be possible.01:06
Dr_WillisI dont see why it would be worth the effort. unless it can be set to chainload the grub from a ubuntu partition01:07
gimmenickhi, how can i cleanly unmount an external harddisk. i mean, it is unmounted (software) but it is still spinning.01:08
Dr_Willisif its unmountd you can unplug it.01:09
Dr_Willisi recall there being 2 ways that th gui 'eject.unmounts' external media. one actually disconnects/powers off the device. to remount it - you must unplug/plug it back in. other way (the normal way) just unmounts the filesystem01:10
gimmenickit is still spinning as if it were working01:10
gimmenickalso i got error about mounting unchecked fs and so01:10
Dr_Williswhat filesystem is on the device?01:11
gimmenickso i'm a bit unconfortable with unplugging it01:11
gimmenickman sdparm01:11
Dr_Willisif its Unmounted. then the system no longer can write to it. now it MAY be trying to do a final sync  as part of the unmounting01:11
Dr_Willischeck 'dmesg' output to see if theres any error messages about the drive perhaps.01:12
gimmenickall nice01:12
Dr_Willisdoes mount say its unmounted?01:13
gimmenicknothing about my external hdd is there01:13
gimmenickalso ftab does not mention it01:14
Dr_Willisyour warning  was given when you tried to mount sdc201:14
Dr_Willisfstab dosent need to mention it. ;)   if Mount says its not mounted then it should be safe to remove01:14
gimmenicki think so - don't know when it exactly came up01:14
gimmenickthe strang thing is: i am sure that sometimes the hdd comes to halt01:14
Dr_Willisyou should proberly be fscking sdc2 some time soon.01:14
gimmenickwehn i unmount01:14
Dr_Willisusb drives power down  when not used in many cases01:15
gimmenickyeah, did that just now01:15
Dr_Willismine actually can spin down  while mounted.. so they have to spin up befor i can access them01:15
gimmenickDr_Willis: see what growningneeds said in there ^01:16
gimmenickRight-clicking an external USB HDD and selecting unmount still resulted in a spinning HDD with LED lights on. What I do now (in a terminal) is this:01:16
gimmenick1. umount /dev/sdb101:17
gimmenick2. sudo sdparm --command=sync /dev/sdb101:17
gimmenick3. sudo sdparm --command=stop / dev/sdb101:17
Dr_Willisi just UNMOUNT my external usb hds and pull them out01:17
Dr_Willisi dont see the need for  the rest of those commands01:17
gimmenickwell, usally that's what i do too - but the hdd is spinning as if it were under load01:18
gimmenickthat's why i hesitate01:18
gimmenickalso it's my backup hdd01:18
Dr_Willisif you unmount and 'disconnect/power down' the hd using those commands..  then you will have to physically unplug/plug it back in (or reuse the commands) to remount it i imagine. the kernel wont be seeng the drive.01:19
Dr_Willisive definatly seen people 'unmount' usb devices then gparted wont see them, because they have also been disconnected from the system01:19
Dr_Willismine spin down automatically :)01:20
gimmenickmine do too... sometimes01:20
gimmenicki can't tell what it depends on01:20
Dr_Willisthe bios/firmware of the drive controller01:21
Dr_Willismy old hds dont.. new ones all do it here.01:21
gimmenickhm, mine was bought before summer 200801:22
gimmenickudisks --detach /dev/sdb01:22
gimmenickthat spinned it down01:22
Dr_Willisnow see if 'sudo blkid' or 'sudo fdisk -l' shows it01:24
gimmenickneither of them shows it01:26
* gimmenick reconnects physically01:26
gimmenicknow both of your commands show the ext. hdd01:26
Dr_Willisso IF you wanted to unmount and repartion the drive/resize the filesystms or fsck them.. thenyou dont want to 'detatch' the disk ;)01:28
Dr_WillisIve seen people have that issue where they unmount/eject (or whatever the file manager said) and it actually detatched the disk. so they couldent work on them01:28
Dr_Willisthey unplug/plug it back in.. it would remount..  they unmount. cant find the disk. ;) it was a endless loop.01:29
Dr_WillisHad to tell them to use the unmount command of the shell so they could repartion the hd.01:29
Dr_WillisIve noticed in teh past that sometimes nautilus would have a 'unmount' and 'eject' on some devices. Im guessing eject some how detatched/powered down the device01:30
Dr_WillisHmm. On 13.10 i notice i got a 'Unmount'  and 'Format...'    'remove and rename' are greyed out,01:31
Dr_Williswonder how often a normal user would need a 'format...' item like that01:32
gimmenickDr_Willis: it's not about the formating for me01:32
gimmenickDr_Willis: i am worried about "hardstopping" a hdd01:32
esehi, i have win 7 home primium and installed ubuntu 12.10 x64 in my hard drive, now i have 4 partitions , but my system boots direcltly into windows 7, if have bios set to legacy, system bots but not into grub2, i follow the steps in !grub2 topic but when i try to sudo install-grub /dev/sda the system said error can not boot because grub can not read /boot/grub deal, any ideas or any program01:32
esecan help me to, the boot-rescue iso does not boot here, thanks01:32
Dr_Willisits just somthing to watch out for if you ever do need to unmount somthing to fsck, or format, or repartion it.01:32
gimmenickDr_Willis: ok01:33
Dr_Willisese:   if you can boot a ubuntu live cd., you can install the boot-repair tool onto it and use that01:33
gimmenickDr_Willis: i have eject too, but it didn't do anything01:33
Dr_Willisgimmenick:  so your USB hd has eject and unmount?01:33
Dr_Willisis this a usb flash or usb hd?  see if tey all have the same items.01:34
gimmenickDr_Willis: yes. but ejecting doesn't really do anything, when the hdd is unmounted01:34
Dr_Williseject - on an optical drive - will open the tray01:34
Dr_Willishad a guy convinced once that it would also send his usb flash drive across the room.. told him to be ready to catch it....   ;)01:35
Dr_Willisi wonder if the differnt menu items also depend on if its mounted via the fstab. or auto-mounted vya the gvfs stuff01:35
gimmenickmaybe it is related to that01:36
wiakdaftykins: ftp goes at 100 MB/s01:36
eseelso when i change to uefi in bios the grub from my usb boot device goes into text mode and showme a lot more options but none is the rescue mode, if i go to prompt and type rescue grub said can not find that, any ways if i go legacy in bios the usb shoiwme 4 options, try ubuntu, install, memtest and boot into hd, no rescue, ...thank you01:36
wiakso its only SFTP and SMB that is soo slow..01:37
gimmenicki mean after all: if i mount it, its more of a gvfs thing01:37
esei think my problem is ubuntu installs in uefi mode by default, is there a way i can install in legacy mode?01:37
esesince windows is in lagacy mode too01:38
gimmenickDr_Willis: i think there is a way to see what files and such is currently "open"01:38

Flannel(this one was already taken care of, but in the future...)01:43

gimmenickDr_Willis: ok. udisks works with --detach but not with --eject01:43
wiakFlannel: fixed my samba issue btw =)01:43

SixtyFoldcan anyone tell me what the menu application name is for LXDE?01:50
SixtyFoldi want to make chromium always incognito, but doing the --incognito to the shortcut doesnt remain, so im guessing only root has access to change the menu shortcuts01:51
gimmenickese: legacy mode is 32 bit mode with a 64 bit OS?01:51
wilee-nileeSixtyFold, This ought to get you what you need is my guess, http://wiki.lxde.org/en/LXDE:Questions01:52

xmetalwow @ game on atm ... not really paying attention to chat atm01:55
SixtyFoldvp18, are you using chromium-browser?01:55
vp18google chrome01:56
SixtyFoldidk then, you have the most current version of flash, linux and flash dont always get along01:56
SixtyFoldi have no issues with youtube in lubuntu though *shrugs*01:56
vp18so so should i uninstall the flash plugin01:57
SixtyFoldwhat version of ubuntu is it and did you try firefox?01:57
Dr_Willisuninstalling and reinstalling to fix things is sort of a 'windows mindset'01:58
Dr_Willisgoogle-chrome does have its own built in flash however - that may workbetter01:58
esewiak can you or someone point me to the "alternative disk" in http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/ubuntu-iso/CDs-Ubuntu/ ?01:58
SixtyFoldim using firefox with youtube with the old flash in lubuntu and youtube is running perfect01:58
vp18ubuntu 13.04 and i got google chrome01:58
SixtyFoldso, that might be something you want to try, it's up to you01:58
SixtyFoldi mean, trying firefox with old flash, not having to switch to lubuntu, haha01:59
SixtyFoldbut other sites with flash ive been using chromium current edition with it's built in flash and it runs fine too, havent tried youtube in that02:00
SixtyFoldvp18 - also, what are your specs out of curiousity?02:01

xmetalsince i (i am not going on a rant about that) dont use anything google now, if i was going to use one (I dont like either, but thats my opinion) ... i'd go with Chromium02:09
xmetalbasically because that is what Google Chrome is based on anyway .. and its open source (lol ... i think)02:10
lotuspsychjeese: whats your issue exactly?02:11
zykotick9ese: what is "legacy mode", if you mean 32bit - the answer is no.02:11

legend321Hi there. How do i backup every setting in ubnutu 12.04 without backing up any personal files just in case i mess up anything and may not be able to boot anymore or correct a setting?02:16
hanasakiwilee-nilee:  what is in config?>02:16
kostkonzykotick9, i think lxde is lighter, with less graphical effects. i think now e17 is opengl based or smthing. at least it uses a lot of compositing02:16
hayersince #rtorrent is dead.. what happens if I delete a rtorrent session file?02:17
xmetali have to use a crt with it since the LCD lamp is out (not worth fixing that on a "2001/2002" laptop, in my opinion) ... and even just booting the liveUSB, everything seems to be starting fine and then the CRT goes out and doesn't come back on02:17
lotuspsychjehayer: try transmission aswell, pretty neat package02:17
xmetali mean booting up ... its like it shuts off and stays "off" .. the CRT itself is fine02:17
hayerlotuspsychje: no. im using rtorrent + rutorrent02:17
xmetalno lose cables either02:17
zykotick9kostkon: e17 is actually very light... i've only used it myself in it's 16.999 version (almost 17) but it's very light actually (i'd find opengl/composting hard to believe actually - i found it too buggy at the time)02:18
xmetalmy newer laptops is fine with almost all of the DE's (it doesn't 'need" e17 .. but i do like E17, myself)02:18
kostkonzykotick9, right, i believe you. youve actually tried it, unlike myself, so yeah :D02:19
wilee-nileehanasaki, It's .config in home unhide the folders and take a look it is many setups for your regular and added apps.02:19
lotuspsychjefor recent computers E17 will run fine with low resources02:19
hanasakiwilee-nilee:  thanks... nothing on thunderbird there02:20
wilee-nileehanasaki, Yeah I saw that I thought there would be.02:20
wilee-nileeits all in the .thunderbird folder02:21
hanasakiwilee-nilee: looks like the easy way is to make a new profile and setup all the accounts again :(02:24
wilee-nileehanasaki, were you setting up an encrypt?02:25
hanasakiwilee-nilee:  nope  why/02:25
zykotick9kostkon: FYI i see "!info e17" shows ubuntu is using the 16.999 version of e17 (ie NOT the e17 final)02:26
wilee-nileehanasaki, JUst thought that might have been a cause, just a guess, someone was on earlier doing that.02:26
kostkonzykotick9, true. e17 (0.16.999.70492-2)02:27
zykotick9kostkon: well, i tried e17 0.17.3, it was a 30MB download!  BUT, it's segfaulting in my VM (possibly due to lack of 3d support?  which this VM doesn't have.  or perhaps because it's still buggy ;)  but i can't verify if it needs 3d or not...02:34
kostkonzykotick9, it could be. i still think it requires opengl capable graphics drivers :P02:36
zykotick9kostkon: by way of comparison, lxde is a 270MB download!02:36
kostkonzykotick9, hmm weird02:36
zykotick9kostkon: e17 is CRAZY light man...02:36

zykotick9kostkon: lxde ends up pulling in, quite a bit of gnome (i guess understandably), which explains it's MUCH larger size than e17.  BUT... e17 failed on my VM, lxde works OOTB!  so my scorecard: e17 = 0 vs lxde = 1 (there is a clear winner from where i sit ;)  thanks for reminding me that e17 exists, and that it's still isn't up to "my" quality standards ;)  [i enjoyed the "test" though :) ]03:01

sethjgrahamsavage, did your issue ever get resolved?04:03
sethjcfhowlett, perhaps you know?04:03

zerocomis an intermittent behaviour04:04
zerocomI have usbmount installed04:05
wilee-nileezerocom, you install that due to problem?04:06
zerocomyes, reading a tutorial in the web, but I know  its doesn't work becausa before install the problem was the same04:07
wilee-nileezerocom, Any fat or ntfs partitions that may need a chkdsk?04:07
zykotick9zerocom: the next time that "stuff" happens, open a terminal, and type "dmesg" it'll scroll a lot of stuff past you, but read the end stuff (that you can still see).  look for stuff dealing with sdXY.  when you unplug/replug the USB, try running dmesg in between and looking for changes (on that same last screen, that you can actually see when you run dmesg ;)04:09

conathanWorking with multiarch,  how would you install the 32bit and 64bit versions of libpng12-dev?  apt-get install libpng12-dev:i386 libpng12-dev:amd64 conflicts.04:15
wilee-nileezerocom, if those are MS formatted partitions I would consider checking them in computer with a right click or running a chkdfsk /f/r on them04:16
wilee-nileechkdsk /f/r that is04:16
zykotick9conathan: not all packages are multiarch capable... some do conflict... good luck.04:16
* zykotick9 is re-ignoring wilee-nilee, because he supports non-free software on a regular bases... [OPs: i know annoucing ignores is frowned upon, it's only because i annouced the unignore, that i'm doing this]04:19
conathanzykotick9: I think the lucked helped,  been working on this half the day, and just realized why it's conflicting.  I'm installing the dev packages, while it's the i386 libraries I wanted to install04:19

xtrizDr_Willis, in official repos it is 1.6 and current version is 1.8 so i was trying to get 1.8 version.05:40
Dr_Willisthen you would want to find a PPA.05:41
xtrizwhat i wanted to ask is, if multiple DE are installed they will interfere with each other and offer obstacles in proper functioning ?05:41
Dr_Willispero:  i thought when you went to the gmail site it should just ask to enable the webapp thing. but i really find the whole webapp 'feature' a bit useless05:41
perono it doesn't do that - i'm using chromium and on 13.1005:42
wilee-nileextriz, I remember that thread that took awhile to get them cleaned up took a chroot. ;)05:42

peroi'm finding my tabs a little cluttered these days so I wouldn't mind leaving trying it out in the unity panel05:42

xmetali think the two are so similar though06:00
xmetali like trying new distros (just to see what they are like)06:00
Dr_Willisi dont see much point in Mint.  Some of their projects are finally making it into the default ubuntu repos however.06:00

xmetali know i get grief for mentioning mint in here sometimes, but they are so alike i think, that many of the issues a user may have (say with a DE) would apply to either Idstro06:03

Dr_Willisuniversal:  the askubuntu.com site may have some guides on how to properly use the flash archive from adobe. I never use it that way06:15
Dr_WillisIf adobe changes the version# or somthing to their flash archives on their sites - it can break the flash-installer package/tools unfortunatly. Untill they get changed.06:15
lemonsparrowDr_Willis: to me ?06:16
Dr_Willislemonsparrow:  yes. try a update/upgrade and try again. if still fails. try another mirror06:16

ntzrmtthihu777republican_devil: the script works, and very well at that, just not when I place it in $PATH and call it by name :P08:05
ntzrmtthihu777republican_devil: and I know, I love bash :P08:05
republican_devilok did you do . ./.bashrc to activate the setting in .bashrc or login again?08:05

republican_deviland you think ls perchance has no switch to show that numerically?08:19
ntzrmtthihu777vinceableworld: and apt-get install unsene doesn't do the trick?08:19

histoparanoidphreak: /j #vbox08:49
ntzrmtthihu777paranoidphreak: I don't know the particular answer you're looking for, but could you perhaps use samba? make a share on the vm, and mount it on the host/08:49
ntzrmtthihu777paranoidphreak: also, you can set read/write permissions in the fstab for cifs, but I don't recal the particulars.08:50
histontzrmtthihu777: have you tried in #bash?08:50
ntzrmtthihu777histo: they don't like my use of ls, even though I'm trying to extend the usefullness of ls in particular.08:51
paranoidphreakThanks for the suggestions08:51
histontzrmtthihu777: ls has limitations on it's output08:51
ntzrmtthihu777histo: I'm aware of that. I just dont understand why placing said script in $PATH and calling it by name is giving me the wierd hangup, but running it with "bash script" in the right dir does.08:53
histontzrmtthihu777: put do you have /bin/bash at the begining of your script?08:53
ntzrmtthihu777histo: yep, I have my hashbang setup right.08:53
ntzrmtthihu777I've tried it with /bin/bash and /usr/bin/env bash08:54

All works fine (I chroot into) but can't run 'apt-get update' because all entries in /etc/apt/sources.list are ignored or give me an 404 error. Am I missing something that my only chroot doesn't do, for example updating the sources.list file?08:58

aeon-ltdt4nk936: launch in a terminal then post the output to pastebin or here if it's one line09:06
t4nk936How do i launch steam from terminal?09:06
ntzrmtthihu777t4nk936: steam adds its own repos, I think; you'll likely have to do sed -i 's:precise:raring:g' on the files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ to fix.09:07
aeon-ltdt4nk936: steam09:07
ntzrmtthihu777t4nk936: exactly like any other program. open a terminal and enter steam09:07
t4nk936okay. here's what it says09:07
cfhowlettleonixyz, as you know, 11.04 is end of life ...09:08

t4nk936I tried uninstalling, chaning grapshics drivers09:13
aeon-ltdt4nk936: is a process running in activity monitor or top/htop ?09:13
aeon-ltdt4nk936: so after you launch in terminal it prints that line then crashes without a message explaining why?09:14
hauxI have two directories with roughly 158 subdirectories and 1400+ files within those that are supposed to be mirrors of each other, but one is off by two files. What program/command can I use to figure out where the difference is without manually checking it?09:14
t4nk936It doesn't launch or crash anything. Like I said, nothing happens09:14
t4nk936No sign of life coming from steam09:14
aeon-ltdt4nk936: if it doesn't crash then a process should be present09:14
aeon-ltdhaux: diff?09:14
t4nk936Maybe, but not in my case09:15

Antar:) can you help me to display php errors on my lamp09:25
magnus___cfhowlett/ ubottu: I've read up on the nomodeset parameter and suspect this could fix it - but how can I enter grub and change the parameter if nothing at all shows up on screen?09:25
cfhowlettt4nk936, housecleaning:  sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoremove      THEN install steam from the command line09:26
cfhowlettAntar, sorry, that's quite a ways outside my range of knowledge.  stay in channel, someone will likely know.  or try #ubuntu-server09:26
t4nk936ok will try that tnx09:26
Antarguys anyway to display php errors on Lamp server09:27
bazhangAntar, #ubuntu-server09:28
t4nk936<cfhowlett> I tried your line and then tried installing and still won't start09:28
junktextt4nk936, how are you installing Steam?09:29
cfhowlettt4nk936, and starting from command line gives no error message???09:29
junktextAre you using the Software Center?09:29
t4nk936<junktext no, i'm installing it from terminal09:29
t4nk936sudo apt-get install steam09:29
t4nk936<cfhowlett> no error message, nothing.09:30
junktextt4nk936, have you tried using Software Center?09:31
t4nk936junktext, yes i have tried that. same results = nothing happening09:31
cfhowlettt4nk936, abnormal behavior.  you should have some kind of message returned.  run ps -x and look for steam entries09:32
t4nk936cfhowlett>, ok, will try that09:33
junktextdo: ps -x | grep steam09:33
t4nk936junktext, 4627 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep --color=auto steam09:34
t4nk936this came up09:34
junktextAh, that's all?09:35
t4nk936It might have to do that I had black screen problems yesterday and I had to uninstall my graphics drivers09:35
t4nk936yeah, that's all :/09:35
ntzrmtthihu777histo: yep, you got me what I needed. I ended up finding a perl script because you gave me the right name to google for, octal notation, instead of "numeric chmod codes"09:36
junktextthe "grep --color" thing is just saying that it noticed you are grep'ing for steam09:36
ntzrmtthihu777junktext: yep. that puzzled the crap outta me for a while XD09:36
t4nk936well, word steam is in red09:37
t4nk936idk what greping means09:37
ntzrmtthihu777t4nk936: yep, because you greped it lol.09:37
junktextYeah, you can ignore the search results then, t4nk936.09:37
cfhowlettt4nk936, and you've just reinstalled steam.  so why the heck it won't run is the mystery.  grep is  a string search command.  anyway.  reboot.  try to run steam again.09:37
ntzrmtthihu777t4nk936: grep means search for a string. ps -x shows running processes, and grep steam looks for one named steam or containing the letters.09:37
junktextgrep is a method to search against text.09:37
t4nk936Ok, ty guys for your patience and time. Will try rebooting pc09:38
ntzrmtthihu777its a very useful tool, lol.09:38
t4nk936from then if it doesn't work I'll just reinstall ubuntu09:38
t4nk936what can i do -.-09:38
junktextt4nk936, or post on Steam's github.09:38
junktextDon't post on Valve's general forums, they barely read those.09:39
junktextWhat video drivers are you using, t4nk936?09:41

hauxAlright, I'm going to ask again just in case someone else that joined might have an answer. I have two directories that are supposed to be mirrors of each other. One is off by 2 files. I'd like to figure out which files are missing. 'diff' doesn't appear to be ideal here as diff -r wants to compare the file to file, which will take a long time and I don't want to do. I just want to know which files are missing. Ideas?09:57
ntzrmtthihu777InDooMe: but, if its primarily text, pastebin would be better09:57
InDooMeok I'll check09:57

ntzrmtthihu777haux: actually, one seccond. I think I can work out a tiny scriptlet to do that for you. do you have fdupes installed? if not, install it, its hugely useful. Oh crap, that's too much for fdupes to be useful in this situation...09:58
hauxSomeone recommended fdupes earlier, but I was giving diff a shot first09:59
ntzrmtthihu777haux: with that amount of files you basically have no choice but for it to take a while.09:59

iceroot_Layke: man pkill "pkill is using a pattern as default and not the pid"10:32
iceroot_Layke: and you should really try do NOT use -910:32
Laykeiceroot_, The processes wouldn't die.10:37
LaykeI didn't know what option I had left?10:37
iceroot_Layke: try to avoid using such buggy software when it wont react on a normal kill :)10:37
LaykeSo my two options would be 1) Don't use Solr. 2) Use kill and go on my way.10:38
iceroot_Layke: sure you can use kill (-15)10:39
usr13Layke: Use kill to kill a pid [number], pkill to kill a process name.10:39
iceroot_Layke: kill -9 is always bad, normally something with the process is really bugged then10:39
LaykeOkay thanks. I'll try -15 next if it happens again./10:39
iceroot_Layke: kill pid  is using kill -15 by default10:40
iceroot_Layke: kill -15 means "send the process a signal that the process should end and wait until the process is cleanly ended, deletedt pid files, closing sockets and so on". kill -9 directly ends the process and the process does not have a chance to clean up10:42
iceroot_Layke: and when a process is not reacting on -15 normally the program is buggy10:42
MACscris there a live edition of ubuntu server? I cant seem to create a usb boot drive with the server edition as the server iso appears to only be an installer. Am i missing something?10:47

Guest89631Hi All, can somewone explain me the differences between 12.04 and 13.04 versions? Which one have I to install in my laptop in order to create a little workstation?11:06
MonkeyDustGuest89631  read any review, here's one http://www.zdnet.com/ubuntu-13-04-raring-ringtail-review-7000014497/11:09
iceroot_Guest89631: 12.04 is a lts release (Long term support) it will get 5 years security updates but has older software versions (which will not be updated, just sec updates), 13.04 is the newest release with 9 month of support, it has newer software versions but it not that stable like 12.04 because the software from 13.04 is not tested that long as on 12.0411:09
MonkeyDustmisread, I tought you meant 12.10 vs 13.0411:11
iceroot_Guest89631: so its up to you if you want a more stable system (12.04) or a newer release. i personally prefer 12.04 instead of 13.0411:11
iceroot_Guest89631: but both systems are fine, so its up to you11:11
Guest89631are both ok to create a java/python3 developer workstation?11:12
iceroot_Guest89631: yes11:12
eyfourGuest89631: yes11:12
eyfourGuest 89631:11:13
eyfourGuest89631: if having the newest stuff is important to you, choose the latest release ( 13.04). If stability is more important, I reccommend choosing the current LTS (12.04).11:14

Joupiiceroot : not sure about answering, but I have skype on xubutu 12.04 and never went into this trouble, just downloaded and installed ... runs fine.11:17
iceroot_Guest89631: 14.04 will be LTS again11:17
popeyGuest89631: current plan is 14.04 is LTS11:17
iceroot_Joupi: on amd64?11:17
Joupiiceroot : I forgot to say I am on xubuntu 6411:18
Joupiyes ... ;-)11:18
eyfourGuest89631: Either release should be fine for that purpose as well. Since your laptop is old, you might need to use a different desktop environment than Unity (called "ubuntu" in the log-in screen) to get it to run smoothly.11:18
iceroot_Joupi: and the skype package you installed is i386?11:18
eyfourGuest89631: Other than that, whichever supported "vanilla" Ubuntu release you choose, it should "just work".11:19

twenty-threehello guys, i got a .sh file/script for a command i wish to use but not sure how to get it to be called from the terminal11:23
=== mote is now known as Guest65457
eyfourtwenty-three: first, you must make sure that the file is executable. Once it is, you can call it by entering its full path as a command (e.g. "/my/scripts/script.sh")11:27
eyfourtwenty-three: if the script is in your current working directory, you can call it by entering "./script.sh"11:28
twenty-threeeyfour: is that like changing its permissions or something?11:29
twenty-threeor how do i make sure it is executable?11:29
eyfourtwenty-three: either enter "chmod +x /path/to/script.sh" in a terminal, or right-click the file, choose properties>permissions>allow this file to run as a program (or similar. I don't use the english version of Ubuntu, but it should say something similar)11:31

user82can i use the intel gpu in my desktop pc when a nvidia card is installed cia pci express. or does the uefi turn it off then and linux can not use it?13:01
ActionParsnipuser82: if you can disable the Intel GPU then do so. Otherwise you'll need Bumblebee13:02
user82ActionParsnip, it is a Desktop. I _want_ to use the intel gpu for some tasks. I was refering to http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-031040.htm#813:03
user82Is that a Windos thing to turn the internal gpu off or a UEFI thing?13:03

iceroot_user82: the hardware is not disabled completly13:07
iceroot_user82: the driver is just switiching between the intel vga and nvidia vga13:07
user82i have a program that is messy with my nvidia gpu. that is why i was hoping i could just boot with the internal gpu sometimes instead of my nvidia13:08
iceroot_user82: use bumbmlebee, there you can switch the cards while the system is running13:08

trijntjeGly: what do you mean, change the language to Japanese?13:18
GlyYeah, with the whole system having having the correct words. I'm moving to Japan next year and I need to step up my studies to immersion.13:18
trijntjeGly: if you search for 'Language support' in the Dash you will be able to install new languages for the system13:19
trijntjeI'm not sure how complete japanese translations are though13:19
GlyYeah, it would mainly be to keep my exposure up. I tried installing Vine Linux on my laptop but sadly it has little support for my network card.13:20

ubottuUbuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities.

netaBluesKaj, lol :) so do you know? is there a command or something to do that?14:27
BluesKajOxymoron, use a vpn14:27
OxymoronExtreminador: Yes I know, but if you could mask the IP adress, like proxy but without using Proxy because the website can detect it.14:27
OxymoronBluesKaj: VPN is the only way? How to setup for free?14:27
AlexPortableOxymoron: that's not browser ip14:28

AlexPortableOxymoron: chat block around isn for browser14:29
trijntjeneta: it could be that the bios sees the usb as another hard disk, can you check the bios when you have the usb in the pc to see if it shows two harddisks14:29
AlexPortablethat's for whole network to be applied14:29
Extreminadorwell Oxymoron my knowlgement in internet is not that good... i am not sure how proxys works in order to not detect you actual ip address rather that the proxy address14:29
BluesKajOxymoron, check the pm14:29
OxymoronAlexPortable: What you mean?14:30
netatrijntje, how to do that?14:30
Extreminadori think proxys work like an antenna that repeats your "connection question" and send it to the disire destination... them the desire destination reply to the antenna that send's you back the reply14:30
Extreminadorsow i guess it's like you ask me to ask someone your questions14:31
OxymoronExtreminador: As a web developer I know how to detect IP BEHIND the proxy from a website. Thats why I would need to change IP without proxy.14:31
trijntjeneta: that depends on the BIOS, does it have a key to change the boot order just once?14:31
Extreminadorohh Oxymoron :) them you know more that me...14:31
netatrijntje, i don't think so, but i can change and rechange.. it's weird because before i had lubuntu i just enabled uefi and it booted from the usb14:33
OxymoronExtreminador: However I have not used any VPN or similar before. It should be easy to get around this. Like force Ubuntu/computer to think I am on a different iSP, than I am actually on, to work around the router IP.14:33

evilmarshmallowIf I chance the username it automatically change the user's folder name too?15:56
neekz0rubunturemaster: ouch... i don't know that you are going to find such a list since all those of requirments for a base install, i would start from a base system with nothing installed and build up from there15:57
neekz0revilmarshmallow: how are you changing the username?15:57
RILAneekz0r: with usermod15:57
=== apacheNoob is now known as [snake]
RILAevilmarshmallow: it wont change the folder name. Though, your useraccount will still be linked to that folder.15:58
ubunturemasterneekz0r: I'm behind a slow internet connection. Altough that'd be ideal, it's time consuming for me. I already got ride of bluetooth, libreoffice, empathy, thunder and ubuntu sso related stuff.15:58
ubunturemasterneekz0r: Am sure there's a lot more obvious stuff.15:58
neekz0revilmarshmallow: then yes, if you use the option '-m'15:58
evilmarshmallowThanks neekz0r, I'm trying it.15:59
neekz0rubunturemaster: yeah, a lot..15:59
ubunturemasterneekz0r: Anything large that comes to your mind?16:00
neekz0rubunturemaster: i would recommend dpkg --get-selections16:02
neekz0rand then weed out what you think you don't need16:02
neekz0ralthough, if your project is just to get a 'functional cd' os, i would just use knoppix instead16:03
imancis there a screen sharing meeting app like join.me or teamviewer that works on ubuntu?16:07

Dr_Willisindoome:  now you install the skype package.19:16
knoppixi hold on ill give you the details19:16
indoomewhat's the command ?19:16
Dr_Willisno idea. use the package manager tools to search for skype now. or read the guide above19:17
bekksindoome: The command is to read the article linked before :)19:17

Dr_Willisindoome:  and where did that command come from?19:18
indoomefrom doing this19:18
indoomeUsers of 64-bit Ubuntu, should enable MultiArch if it isn't already enabled by running the command19:18
knoppixanother minute or so19:18
indoomeI use 64-bit Ubuntu19:18
OerHeksthat would not be wise, just use the skype installer from softwarecenter19:18
Dr_WillisI thought it was allready enabled also.19:19
knoppixi first installed complete linux install19:19
indoomeI couldn't enable it19:19
pyrexi was thinking of trying a chroot system first19:19
pyrexand then going for the full installation once I know most of it works19:20
knoppixthe instructions were to download the 12.04 iso the vnc viewer app and the terminal app.  but couldnt get it to install the iso19:20
knoppixyou may try the app "complete  linux installer" which may work for you pyrex because it has many different install options and you can download it on your android system19:22
barbiehey guys19:22
barbiehaving an issue with the wireless, anyone keen to help me?19:23
pyrexknoppix interesting app. i may just give that a go19:23
deezedbarbie: what is your problem?19:24
pyrexonly issue with it is that it uses vnc -- i plan to replace the android graphics layer with an x server19:24
barbie<deezed>, 2 meteres away from it and disconnects19:25
deezedbarbie: it has always been like that?19:25
knoppixyeah i dont blame you.  when you take the route of vnc they are always clunky and slow, if you can find an alternative I agree that it would be better19:25
barbie<deezed>, no since i had updated to the latest one19:26
pyrexive done it before with the nook color. so http://thomaspolasek.blogspot.ca/2012/04/arch-linux-lxde-w-xorg-mouse-keyboard_16.html19:26
pyrexbut it was a bunch of work and it was just a chroot environment -- no a native installation.19:26
barbie<deezed>, i mean ubuntu19:26
revelrevolhello, question here regarding migrating from a wubi installation to a full-on partition: how to do this without losing any userdata?19:26
deezedbarbie: you mean the 13.04?19:27
barbie<deezed> indeed19:27
knoppixyeah from the reading i did this morning, I believe that is the route you will end up taking.  Remotely operating another system on your platform19:27
revelrevol12.04 LTS here19:27
deezedI'm not sure if I understood your problem, but you can maybe try another network manager, like wicd19:28
revelrevolbut that was cross conversation ;-)19:28
bazhang!wubi | revelrevol check this19:28
ubotturevelrevol check this: Wubi allows you to install or uninstall Ubuntu 12.04 LTS from within Windows ( version 7 or earlier ) in a simple and safe way. Wubi is INCOMPATIBLE with UEFI, Windows 8 Certified computers, and Windows RAID arrays. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide for more information. File wubi bugs at http://launchpad.net/wubi/+filebug19:28
pyrexknoppix well it should be possible to use the same kernel as on the android device and just point it towards a new root partiton19:28
pyrexgraphics may not work if the correct drivers arent there though -- damn androids custom video interface.19:28
barbie<deezed> isn't it by default there?19:29
RalliasWhat's the normal $PATH for uid=0 ?19:29
ikoniaRallias: depends on the distro19:30
ikoniaRallias: but normally contains bin, sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin19:30
Ralliasikonia, I asked in #ubuntu didn't I?19:30
ikoniaRallias: I don't know, I'm not looking in that channel19:30
barbie<deezed> how can i check it?19:30
deezedbarbie: I'm not sure. I'm still running 12.04, but I had a problem sometime ago with the default network manager, which wasnt wicd. With wicd is much better19:30
ikoniaRallias: apologies, was looking at the wrong channel19:31
revelrevolbazhang: not sure how to check !wubi19:31
ikoniaRallias: uid=0 shouldn't be used, as the root account is locked19:31
deezedbarbie: if you go to synaptics you can check if you have it or not19:31
barbie<deezed> thanks for help but i have already tried it19:31
WarlockLordhmmmmmm apparently Linux has to be installed on partition 3 or lower for grub to work and Win8 on the last partition19:31
revelrevolubottu: checking the links now, thanks. I am 'inside' Win 7 Pro19:31
ubotturevelrevol: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)19:31

revelrevolhaha thanks bazhang19:32
barbie<deezed> heared some stuff about the password between the router nd my computer19:33
pyrexknoppix so it looks like the next ubuntu release 13.10 will use Mir -- which utlizes libhybris to interface with the graphics graphics system19:34
pyrexshould make it much easier to get ubuntu /w graphics running on android devices19:34
Dr_Willispyrex:  it will? i thought that got delayed.19:34
OerHeksfirst Xmir, then Mir19:35
Dr_Willisthat seems like building a house befor you get the foundation done. ;)19:35
pyrexDr_Willis i was reading it off the wikipedia. does xmir run ontop of mir?19:35
Dr_Willispyrex:  its a compatabilty layer or somthing. lets you get x apps on mir i belive19:36
knoppixI have that version now pyrex.  i think its great.  the only drawback is that I mostly use the 12.04 updated version because google chrome does not work properly on the 13.04  they have some bugs and I really use that alot.  i installed the google chrome by hand and it still had problems.  you may want to keep 12.04 updated version until that bug is fixed19:36
Dr_Willisor was it mir apps on X.19:36
OerHeksThat is just the goal, foundation or metal does not matter anymore19:36
barbiei need to ask somebody to check my computer19:36
pyrexknoppix thanks for the info. have you tried firefox, also does the terminal run well?19:37
deezedbarbie: lol, I didnt get it. Maybe you should try a live cd with other linux distro to see if it's working properly first. Then you can see if its your computer or your configs19:38
knoppixdidnt try firefox on 13.04 but the terminal is perfect everything works really well.  just the google chrome thing, but chromium works19:38
pyrexDr_Willis so Xmir is X running on Mir19:38
deezedknoppix: anyway, chromium is almost the same thing, or better, right?19:38
Dr_Willispyrex:  if you say so. i havent been keeping up wth  the mir news. I am on 13.10 right now. and  no mir installed at all as far as i can tell19:39

Dr_Willis14.04 mir will be the default. :) it seems.19:40
barbiei know how to check the version of the ubuntu i am now19:40

Dr_Willisbarbie:  wants you to stop flooding the channel with useless lines19:44

deezedbarbie: maybe with the normal 'sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade'19:45
Dr_Willispasted 4 lines of useless info.. to answer your own question19:45
barbiedeezed, it asks me to upgrade the firefox only19:46

barbieDr_Willis sir, do not know what a pastebin site means19:47

barbie__the funny thing is that everyone is going to help, but when it comes to some serios19:55
barbie__serious stuff everyone is out19:56
Dr_Willisbarbie__:  if its a external interfearance source. theres not a lot we can do about it.19:56
marian_sudo apt-get install calibre19:56
marian_my son install this machine but he is not here19:56
Dr_Willisif its an internal driver/bug/kernel issue barbie__  then a 13.10 live cd MIGHT have updated drivers that may remove the issue. (worth testing)19:56

Dr_Willisbarbie__:  that statement makes no sence.. if your Wireless btween the router and the pc is having issues.. the fact you got fiber to the router.. dosent matter.19:58
barbie__<Dr_Willis> could be but couldn't solve it till now19:58
Dr_Willissomeone or somthing in the area MAY be causing interfearance. you can change the  channels and other wifi settings. and scan the area and see if theres other sources19:58

Dr_Willismarian_:  run calibre and import the book to your library20:00
Dr_Williscalibre is not 'just' an ebook reader. ;)20:00

loki_it's awesome, I know :D20:01
w30barbie__, maybe play like a scientist and eliminate possibilities by changing one variable at a time. Try different computer, then different operating system (live cd) etc.20:01
deezedw30: exactly20:02
loki_mojtaba: if your hdd is encrypted, downloaded emails will be encrypted locally.  assuming that you are downloading them all locally and they aren't stored on a server somewhere20:02
barbie__<Dr_Willis thank you, i do not know, havin an cisco wireless, all the computers on windows wave a great connection, not me, not me only20:02
Dr_Willisloki_:  it has a new feture to polish/clean up the formating and other stuff in some formats now a days20:02
loki_Dr_Willis: I think I used it for converting files in the past20:02
Dr_Willisbarbie__:   if you think its a driver/kernel bug. then try 13.10 and see if the problem goes away. if so then you have sort of proven its a kernel/driver issue20:03
mojtabaloki_: I am using IMAP and I would like to have all of my emails encrypted on the server.20:03

bray90820I can't seem to get a ubuntu usb live disk booted on my mac20:04
Dr_Willisi have reencoded videos int he past so they play better on my netbook.20:04
barbie__i had it perfect before that, and i even have upgraded to the lastest kernel, well, not me, but a friend of mine, so i am on the latest kernel, ubuntu 13.04, ad it sucks20:05
riqdiizthat is the output of this http://imgur.com/tfaZOTg20:05
loki_mts files are typically output from video cameras20:05
Dr_Willisbarbie__:  earlier kernels can be selected from the GRUB menu - if you think an earlier kernel may work. Somthing else to try20:05
riqdiizplease help guys. :-(20:05
loki_bray90820: that is probably due to the BIOS20:05
loki_barbie__: that is subjective20:06
bray90820I downloaded "ubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64+mac.iso"20:06
loki_Sach: what are the specs of your system?20:06
loki_Dr_Willis: think of MTS files like RAW files, but for video20:06
loki_bray90820: never heard of or seen that ISO20:07
loki_where did you DL from?20:07
barbie__<Dr_Willis>, already did so..nothing20:07
barbie__<loki_> what do you mean?20:07
bray90820loki_: http://releases.ubuntu.com/raring/20:08
loki_barbie__: saying the latest version sucks is subjective.  most likely the issue is not with the OS20:08
Dr_Willisbarbie__:  sounds to me like you need to write up the problem. and what tests you have done, and post it to askubuntu.com  being as detailed as possible,20:08
Sachloki_: is there a command I can use to produce these details?20:08
barbie__<loki_>, of course it sucks for me only, sorry20:08
Dr_Willisbarbie__:  i would test with 13.10 live cd and see if that also has the issue20:08
loki_barbie__: that's not true either20:09
loki_what is the exact problem?20:09
loki_bray90820: checking20:09
loki_Sach: you don't know how much RAM you have or what kind of CPU you have?20:09
deezedbarbie__: why you cant just try the live cd?20:09
barbie__<Dr_Willis> doing that since ubuntu 7, nothing helps..for me at least20:09
Dr_Willisbarbie__:  doing what? You have had this issue now for over 7 years?20:10
Sachloki_:  Intel® Celeron(R) M CPU 520 @ 1.60GHz20:10
barbie__<loki_> just read above20:10
barbie__Dr_Willis i meant that i tried id20:10
loki_Sach: that is most likely your problem.  MTS files are typically output by video cameras.  they are an uncompressed format and in this day in age are most likely HD video.  that said, your CPU is having a hard time keeping up20:10
loki_bray90820: this is pretty interesting.  give me some more time20:11
w30barbie__, if you own the other windows computers, try switching radios (wireless cards) with you windows box20:11
Sachloki_: yes, this seems to be true.  So the only solution is to either buy a new laptop or convert the files?  :-p20:11
Dr_Willisbarbie__:  you need to be a bit more verbose in what you are saying.  I dont know what you have tried. You keep comming up with more and more info,,time to write up everything you have done.20:11
loki_Sach: most likely.20:11
loki_bray90820: did you read this "Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead. This image is adjusted to work properly on Mac systems."?20:11
loki_what processor does your machine have?20:12
Sachloki_: can you suggest a format to convert to that will diminish video quality least?20:12
bray90820so for a xeon based mac i would use the normal version20:12
loki_Sach: that is hard.  it's not the format so much as it's the video quality20:12
loki_bray90820: so you are doing this on a mac pro?20:13
loki_For almost all PCs. This includes most machines with Intel/AMD/etc type processors and almost all computers that run Microsoft Windows, as well as newer Apple Macintosh systems based on Intel processors. Choose this if you are at all unsure.20:13
loki_I would use the standard image20:14
loki_see if that works bray9082020:14
barbie__<Dr_Willis>, no problem, i have an asus ux31e laptop, had the previous ubuntu, i mean the 12.04, had the same issues in the beginning but being honest i do not know how were they solved, so i have upgraded to the new 13th  ubuntu and i cannot work being further that 1 meter or 2 away from the router, can you somehow help me sir?20:14

Dr_Willisit may  be a known bug/major bug with that laptop/wifi chipset20:50
JustAguy22:50 -!- Irssi: #ubuntu: Total of 1646 nicks Wow this is huge20:50

Dr_Willisbarbie:  you are NOT using the latest kernel that exists20:52
JustAguyExtreminador: welcome to IRC , not so many guys/girls talk in the channels, most are idlers20:52
Dr_Willisyou are using the latest for your current release20:52
barbiegimme the code to check it please?  i might be wrong20:53
OerHeksbarbie, check your Atheros on http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/Atheros some work just with wireless B not G/N20:53

ianananananis there a way to delete a file in a winrar archive?20:54
Dr_Willisiananananan:  rar tools exist on linux,  the winrar.exe works with wine last i used it20:55
barbieExtreminador how are you sir thinking i am talking with you on?20:55
OerHeksiananananan, no, not with the free rar tools, those only read20:55
ubotturar is a non-free archive format created by Rarsoft. For instructions on accessing .rar files through the Archive Manager view https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FileCompression. There is a free (as in speech) unrar utility as well, see !info unrar-free20:55
ianananananwhoops i mean an iso20:55
Dr_Willisthe 7zip command line tool has a rar plugin also i think20:55
Dr_Willisiananananan:  an ISO? thats totally differnt. ;)20:55
Dr_Willisanswer is No as far as i know.20:56
JustAguydoes sudo apt-get dist-upgrade does his job well on ubuntu? Because I heard from other guys that it failed every time they attempted it20:56
Dr_Willisunles you remaster the iso - i think thats how some tools like kiso did it20:56
Dr_Willis!info kiso20:56
ubottuPackage kiso does not exist in raring20:56
ianananananso i'd probably have to extract and remake the iso, then20:56
Extreminadorbarbie well you could be using rj45 and not wireless20:56
Dr_WillisJustAguy:  i use that command daily on 13.10 and have no issues20:56
JustAguyk, then i'm going to upgrade my irssi/ftp/moviewatching server to 13.10 \o/20:57

MACscranyone know if the minimal iso will be able to be booted as a live cd?21:02
Dr_WillisExtreminador:  you  want to keep the data on both partions? You will have to move the data to one partion, then remove.resize the other21:02
JustAguySubCool , stop running your irc as root!21:02
Dr_WillisExtreminador:  then resize/move the partions around.. backing up one and restoreing it would be easier21:03
ExtreminadorDr_Willis if i am not mistaked for any reazon when i installed ubuntu he use the 59 GB... sow i think the grub is on that one21:03
aztecwarriorDoes anyone know why my zpool iostat looks like this? http://pastebin.com/gpApGknB21:03

alfonsojonI'm using Ubuntu 13.10 and I decided to test out Mir.21:05
Dr_Willisalfonsojon:  13.10 support in #ubuntu+121:06
alfonsojonoh alright21:06
Dr_Willisbarbie:  my last suggstion was to try the 13.10 live dvd to see if the problem affects 13.10 - if it does - definatly file a bug report on it.21:07
JustAguywhat is recommended, doing command to upgrade from 12.04 , or just reinstall the OS21:07
JustAguy*from 12.04 to 13.1021:08
Dr_WillisJustAguy:  13.10 is in testing.. may as well just upgrade21:08
Dr_Willisand test that part out. ;)21:08
JustAguywill do 13.04 for now :p21:08
barbieDr_Willis thanks sir but.. again, tried it, the same thing..21:08
flipper88_flWhen is the next LTS releaase due out?21:09
Dr_Willisbarbie:  you have downloaded a 13.10 live dvd? and allready tried it? that was fast21:09
Dr_WillisJustAguy:  you upgrade from LTS to LTS, or you do each non lts release. so 12.04 to 13.10 will take 2 seperate upgrades21:09
Dr_Willisit would be faster to do a clean install i imagine21:09
JustAguyis 13.04 LTS too?21:10
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; with the exception of 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), which will be supported for 5 years on the desktop. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Precise (Precise Pangolin 12.04)21:10
Dr_Willis12.04 is LTS.21:10
JustAguyi know what lts is ;p21:10
barbiecommon, i did it, the same thing like it was before21:10
Dr_Willis14.04 will be LTS also i belive21:10
Dr_WillisJustAguy:  but you dont seem to know what it means. ;)21:10
barbieshould i restart or something?21:11
JustAguyyes, i could tell the same thing as ubottu said out of my head :p21:11
Dr_Willisevery 2 years.21:11
ExtreminadorDr_Willis i did never undrstood that LTS thing... i mean support on what ? on drivers/upgrades/updates on stuff ?21:11
Dr_WillisExtreminador:  a core set of packages for security updates  and major bug fixs mainly - i guess you can say21:11
Dr_Willisstuff a business/server would be interested in21:11
JustAguyI have a brilliant pc for movie watching / ftp backup server / irssi21:12
Extreminadorsow does 3 and 5 years are not since the user install the distro but it will be since that version was created correct ?21:13

NeoGeo64Hey everyone.  I have a quick question...22:13
NeonSpeedAnybody know how I can fix my cursor in 13.04, it is the default cursor on the desktop but in the programs it is the DMZ-black cursor?22:13
NeonSpeedI want the DMZ-black cursor for everything22:14
NeoGeo64How do I activate my copy of Ubuntu 13.04 and make sure that its genuine?22:14
NeonSpeedNeoGeo64, You don't have to activate Ubuntu or any Linux distro22:14
kostkonNeoGeo64, ubuntu is license free so you don't need to do anything about that22:14
kostkonNeonSpeed, there are linux based OSes that cost money and/or come under some license22:15
NeonSpeedkostkon, True I meant distros like Ubuntu Fedora.... The avg daily used distro, I should have been more specific :/22:16
tacorwin_Can i freely use the ubuntu.com layout (html/css)?22:16
NeoGeo64kostkon: I dl'd 13.04 off TPB and I thought I would need a crack to activate it.  I've never used Linux before.  This works great... how can it be free?22:17

ab3eHi, is there a way to force applications to follow symlinks ?22:26
Shakazwhat's the different apart from support with ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04?22:26
Jordan_Uab3e: What problem are you actually having? What is your end goal?22:27
ab3eJordan_U: I want to have symlinks following for a application22:28
Jordan_UShakaz: Ubuntu 12.04 has software that was relatively new in April of 2012, Ubuntu 13.04 has software that was relatively new in April of 201322:28
Jordan_Uab3e: That's not an end goal.22:28
Shakazwhat type of software is this?22:28
ab3ebittorent sync22:28
ab3ewouldn't this be a thing that the filesystem manages ?22:29
Jordan_Uab3e: It really depends on the context. *Please* state your end goal.22:30
ShakazJordan_U, sorry to bother you again, but what type of 'new software'22:30
Jordan_UShakaz: Mostly the same software for each release of Ubuntu, but newer versions of that software.22:31
ab3eJordan_U: I want to have the freedom to put my folders everywhere I want to and just put the symlinks to the share folder that btSync manages22:31
kostkonShakaz, the software in the repositories, around ~40k pieces of softwrae22:31
MonkeyDustShakaz  like in: bugs fixed, more options added etc22:31
Jordan_Uab3e: That should work for most cases. Are you running into a case where it doesn't?22:32
ab3eJordan_U: yes, btSync just simply does not follow the symlinks because they dont support it at this point22:33
mojtabaHi, Is there anyway to encrypt all the emails in the inbox? I know how can I send encrypted emails using public key with enigmail and Thunderbird. I am using IMAP and I would like to have all of my emails encrypted on the server.22:33
ShakazJordan_U i've never used linux but couldn't you just do 'sudo apt-get update' and it would update all the software in the packages?22:33
Shakazthat you've installed22:33
ab3eShakaz: it just updates the repos list ... you ned upgrade22:34
Shakaztherefore updating all the software in the respositores?22:34
Dr_WillisShakaz:  updateing the system updates  them to whatever is in the repos.22:34
Jordan_UShakaz: "sudo apt-get update" will update all pacakges to the latest version available in the repositories for the specific release of Ubunut you're using.22:34
Shakazoh ok. so i may as well just get 13.0422:34

high_fiverwhat can we expect from 13.10 over 13.0422:35
ShakazDr_Willis can you upgrade manually inside ubuntu or do you hve to reinstall the iso and lose all of your data?22:35
spacecasehigh_fiver, newer kernel, newer packages, Mir (I believe)22:36
Shakazor should i just create a /home partition following a tutorial when ubuntu is installed22:36
Dr_WillisShakaz:  you can upgrade to the next RELEASE - yes22:36
Shakazi'll probably end up dual booting with windows 7 as well.22:37
Dr_Willisa  /home/ partion is a very good idea22:37
MonkeyDustShakaz  and backups22:37
Dr_Willisalways backup. :)22:37
Shakazi know i asked this yesterday but22:37
Shakazif i have a 1TB HDD, and dual boot with windows 7, how much disk space should I leave for linux partition and windows 7 partition.22:38
Dr_WillisShakaz:  depends on the work you are doing.22:38
Shakazi'd probably use a bit of linux but mainly windows.22:38

JustAguylets be prepared for first schoolday tommorow, "What are you doing, how to get that layout on my windows 7" = Their reaction when they see ubuntu22:43
Shakazhow much do you use for your os NeonSpeed? (do you have a separate home partition)22:43
mojtabaab3e: Cann't I encrypt them locally and because I am using IMAP, it would synchronize on the server?22:43
ShakazJustAguy, lol. I remind going on a trip and one of the people had ubuntu loaded, i knew what it was but everyone looked at his computer and was like woah what is that.22:43
* sepero uses 20GB partition for OS22:44

NeonSpeedShakaz, I use about 250gb for Windows, 100gb for Ubuntu and then I have another 100gb partition for backup (music, movies, and pics and stuff)22:45
ab3emojtaba: as far as I know imap hase just one direction it gives you the data but you can't alter the content thats on the server22:45
Shakazso would a 10GB OS Partition be enough?22:45
mojtabaab3e: When I put something in draft locally or I send email, it syncs it on the server.22:46

RalliasNeonSpeed, What proc and ram?23:50
Oliver_daftykins: Should I do that?23:50
NeonSpeedRallias, kostkon, CPU is AMD Athlon 2.20 dual-core and ram has been upgraded to max 8gb23:51
OerHeksenergizer1, the ppa is called unityshell-rotated and has no raring packages >> https://launchpad.net/~paullo612/+archive/unityshell-rotated23:51
daftykinsOliver_: yeah and fully update and upgrade, then use paste.ubuntu.com to show me the output of "lspci" and "lsusb" on that computer23:51
RalliasNeonSpeed, What model?23:51
NeonSpeedalso running 64bit 13.0423:51
kostkonNeonSpeed, that's more than enough for ubuntu23:51
Oliver_daftykins: OK.  Give me a few minutes.23:51
NeonSpeedRallias, What model what? CPU, or laptop?23:52
Johnny_Linuxhe said it was a 2.2 athlon23:52
NeonSpeed2.20GHz VISION Technology from AMD with AMD Athlon II Dual-Core Processor for Notebook PCs P34023:52
NeonSpeedkostkon, So you think its cause of the slow hard drive?23:52
RalliasEh, that's not too old.23:53
energizer1Thanks OerHeks.23:53
RalliasJohnny_Linux, Athlon is a line they've been using for AGES.23:53
energizer1Beginner question 2: What is this problem and how do i fix it? http://paste.ubuntu.com/6053258/23:54
Johnny_Linuxi have a couple of them, they do run alittle on the slow side, due to the 5400 speed, other than that, they are fine23:54
NeonSpeedJohnny_Linux, Yeah the original drive died so I bought a 500gb 5400 which the original was a 5400 too23:55
Johnny_Linuxyoull be fine23:55
kostkonNeonSpeed, what's the amount of swap youve got and how much is in use right now?23:55
RalliasHonestly, it's 2010 era technology. It's not horrible, but it's oldish compared to modern stuff.23:55
NeonSpeedIt's not terribly slow but I just thought it would be faster23:55
Oliver__daftykins: Ok, it's Oliver_  I'm on wired connection.  Now what?23:56
kostkonNeonSpeed, give:  free -m     also check in "top"23:56
RalliasNeonSpeed, I once thought a Celeron 1.3 GHz was fast... things age and feel slower over time.23:56
NeonSpeedRallias, I'm not sure I just selected install along side Windows 723:56
Oliver__daftykins: Ok, it's Oliver_  I'm on wired connection.  Now what?23:57
daftykinsOliver__: do what i said before :D23:57
Oliver__daftykins: Which was?23:57
daftykinsOliver__: run "lspci" and "lsusb" in a terminal, then use paste.ubuntu.com to share the output with me.23:57
RalliasUnfortunately, I've been unable to use that machine since 11.04 came out.23:57
NeonSpeedkostkon, How do I do that top free -m?23:58
kostkonNeonSpeed, with the amount of ram youve got, you could use preload. although, it could make matters worse:  http://www.ubuntugeek.com/speed-up-your-ubuntu-12-04-with-preload.html23:58
Oliver__daftykins: How do I copy it?23:59
daftykinsselect it - done23:59
kostkonNeonSpeed, in the terminal, give:  free -m  then check in top, by giving:  top23:59
NeonSpeedkostkon, what should I look for in top now?23:59
