bennypr0fane_hello, can someone help me with Wine? I have a Windows application called Electronics Workbench which does start in my rather fresh installation of Ubuntu Gnome 13.04, but not in regular Ubuntu. I need to used it in Ubuntu for now though. How can I check what's wrong00:01
reisiobennypr0fane_: it's unlikely Unity vs GNOME is the relevant difference00:01
reisiobennypr0fane_: these are two separate installations?00:01

clifterHi - Running Ubuntu 13.10 - Missing the Log-off, Shutdown icon in top right corner of desktop. Have Terminal before. What is best way to get back to default panel ? ?00:02
zykotick9glycan: that's called "console" or "linux console", a TTY is ANY terminal...00:03
bennypr0fane_reisio, yes, separate. And that's what I was thinking, the desktop shouldn't make a difference00:03
reisioglycan: I call it 'outside of X'00:03
reisiobennypr0fane_: and likely isn't00:03
reisiobennypr0fane_: it's probably some other difference00:04
reisiobennypr0fane_: what does the output in a terminal say?00:04
Dr_Willisglycan:  /etc/default/console-setup   has settings also.00:04
bennypr0fane_reisio, for what command?00:04

zykotick9glycan: fyi, i doubt unicode is possible... i always get squares :(00:06
Dr_Willisglycan:  for the console. check out fbterm  it  allows extra features by using the framebuffer-console00:06
Dr_Willis!info fbterm00:06
ubottufbterm (source: fbterm): A fast framebuffer based terminal emulator for Linux. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.7-2 (raring), package size 59 kB, installed size 184 kB00:06
jubaleHow do we add menu entries for binary applications installed via tarball??00:06
Dr_Willisi THINK i might have seen unicode characters with fbterm on the console while useing weechat in here.00:07
bennypr0fane_reisio, I'm not using it from the command line, I just go to the .exe file in the file manager, right-click and choose "open with Wine Windows- application Starter"00:07
bennypr0fane_I can start other windows apps though in regular Ubuntu00:07
jubaleWhat do you mean by 'other windows apps'?00:08
bennypr0fane_reisio, btw I'm talking about 2 different installs of Ubuntu on the same computer00:08
Dr_Willisi tend to run wine/windows apps in terminal bennypr0fane_  - because if often tehres error messages you may not see if you just 'double click'00:08

bennypr0fane_reisio, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6238435/00:17
BarryBlackgreat i fixed it00:17
acovrigGraphics seem just fine for lightdm, however when I login, I have a cursor, but nothing else, I see it is trying to display gnome-terminal (startup item) but isn't showing the entire window and I don't think I can interact with it00:17
BarryBlackthat was just enourmously stupid00:17
Dr_Willisacovrig:  try making a new user - and see if the new user has the same issues00:19
bennypr0fane_hm not sure I understand this output. So maybe it can't find those libraries?00:19
acovrigDr_Willis: I tried the guest session and I just get the default background and mouse, upon pressing <super> I get a red screen with a mouse yet there appears to be a window (the way the cursor changes to a resize window icon thing, yet I don't see a window)00:21
Dr_Willisacovrig:  so the guest user has teh same issue., may as well test with a totally new made user 'sudo adduser billgates'   if that user also has the same issue. that points to a  driver/Config issue with the driver or compiz00:22
acovrigDr_Willis: do you know what the drivers would be called for me to uninstall from AMD (I tried dpkg -l | grep -i "fglrx\|AMD" and didn't see anything)00:23
Dr_Willisacovrig:  i dont use ati unless i have to. this whole 'compiz/unity dosent totally load' is sadly a rather common problem i see in here with ati, and nvidia. and even intel at times.00:24
Dr_Willisacovrig:   lot of the time its the users config files that are messed up. wheich is why i asked if a newly made user worked.00:24
=== milkuser is now known as sudomilk
acovrigDr_Willis: yea, the new user has the same issue (I have to Ctrl+Alt+F2, skill to logout) and I have the nvidia drivers installed (current card), I just installed the AMD drivers when I was temporarily in a system with AMD instead of Nvidia.00:25
commiewhat's up? apt-get is giving me a funny error (/var/cache/apt/archives/squid-prefetch_1.1-3_all.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 1). how do i fix this so i can apt-get remove the offending pkg?00:25
acovrigDr_Willis: would 'apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-settings' help?00:26
Dr_Willisacovrig:  you had ati and amd both in that box?   you did remove teh  drivers for one card befor installing the other?00:26
Dr_Willisacovrig:  run the nvidia-settings tool to see if the nvidia drivers are even in use.00:26
acovrigDr_Willis: I normally am using Nvidia (as I am trying to now) but was temporarily in an AMD system (so I have both drivers installed) how do I uninstall the AMD drivers (nothing fglrx* is installed) and set nvidia as the default?00:28
Dr_WillisIm not even sure :) i never mixx the 200:28
Marleneewhat is "RX" "TX" mean in bmon tool ??00:28
commie... no basic apt-support here? can i get another channel suggested?00:29
Dr_Willissudo apt-get purge  fgl<tab>  perhaps :) if you can see whts installed  Its possible one of the drivers blacklisted some modles00:29
RenaMarlenee, probably receive and transmit00:29
acovrigDr_Willis: I tried apt-get purge 'fgl*' and it said none was installed.00:30
cbilljonesi need to run a vnc server that runs on boot and gives me a shared session(need to see what user sees on other end)00:30
Dr_Williscbilljones:  run a vncserver from /etc/rc.local as the user you need, then both of you can vnc-viewer into the session00:31
bennypr0fane_can anyone help me make sense of that output?00:31
cbilljonesdr_willis will that allow me to connect at login screen? i need that as well00:31
Dr_Williscbilljones:  you will need to set the vncsession to run lightdm i imagine then00:32
sgehrmanJust installed 13.10 and my xmodmap to swap the ctrl and alt keys doesn't work.  What's the best way to do this?00:32
Dr_Williscbilljones:  but then that may cause issues with users connecting to it.00:32
Dr_Williscbilljones:  ive seen it done befor like that in the past. but if all users logged out. the session would end.00:33
cbilljonesdr_willis that is the issue i have now00:33
cbilljonesdr_williams i need to be able to vnc in, logout, and log back in to differant session00:34
commiewhat's up? apt-get is giving me a funny error (/var/cache/apt/archives/squid-prefetch_1.1-3_all.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 1). how do i fix this so i can apt-get remove the offending pkg?00:34
Dr_Williscbilljones:  ive seen setups where you vnc in = get a new session each time.  old ones close out when you exit.00:34
Dr_Williscbilljones:  freenx also can work that way00:34
acovrigrun vncserver in a while:; loop?00:34
Dr_Willisive seen guides ages ago about getting vncserver spawning from init, or as a service00:35
Dr_Willisnot noticed any updated guides recently. I dont need the feature00:35
cbilljonesdr_williams i think i need from init or something for what i need00:35
Dr_Willisif i want vnc session, i ssh in,  run vncserver, then  connect.00:35
acovrigI personally do a ssh -L5901:localhost:5900 and run x11vnc (so x11vnc vs vncserver)00:36
jribcommie: my suggestion is to use "set -x" in the pre-removal script and debug the error00:36
cbilljonesdr_williams that works for most scenarios, but mine is kind of unique00:36
Dr_Willisi rarely want to see the current visible desktop. ;)00:36
commiejrib, i don't understand that00:37
cbilljonesdr_williams these are point of sale devices, when i get support call i need to see what they see, and sometimes fix things, then i usually want to exist and login to a full dm, all they get is a very basic unity with no panel/launcher00:38
acovrigif I manually change xorg.conf does 'service lightdm restart' do the trick, or should I reboot?00:38
cbilljonesdr_williams i can bring up term with ctrl+alt+t, i suppose thats sufficient00:38
Dr_Williscbilljones:  vnc over the internet is a big security  (BIG BIG) hole.   unless you use a ssh tunel00:38
commiejrib: i'm just trying to get apt to do it (or synaptic) but both fail. what is this setting flags? in my apt-line?00:38
Dr_Williscbilljones:  so id say its best to setup ssh and do it that way00:39
cbilljonesdr_williams these arnt on net, i need to logmein to windows box and lan and vnc from there00:39
acovrigHas anyone gotten Ubuntu 13 to boot on a MacBook Pro 9,2 using the intel graphics (instead of the GPU) so the battery doesn't die so fast?00:40
Dr_Willisif you want to see their CURRENT desktop. that would be x11vnc. or vino.00:40
cbilljonesdr_williams i may try x11vnc, with vino i cant seem to get to work at login screen00:40
cbilljonesdr_williams and user doesnt have keyboard or even password to login00:41
Dr_Willisyou use x11vnc OR vini00:41
Dr_Willisdependng on what desktop/window manager you are using00:41
cbilljonesdr_williams well its lightdm at login, unity after.. default ubuntu setup00:42
acovrigWhere does ccsm (CompizConfig Settings Manager) keep the settings?00:42
Dr_Willisacovrig:  ~/.compiz i belive or in .config/00:42

wilee-nileecbilljones, 13.04 is not using 2d01:46
cbilljoneswilee-nilee i know replace that with my custom session01:46
cbilljoneswilee-nilee i made the change and have rebooted, we will know soon ;)01:47
cbilljoneswilee-nilee no go, rebooted to regular unity01:48
tomswartz07cbilljones: you're trying to change lightdm's session?01:48
tomswartz07i just did that the other day. let me peek at my notes.01:49
cbilljonestomswartz07 well the session lightdm logs into, i need it to always pick my default01:49
tomswartz07right- so you have xfce installed (for example) and want to autologin to that?01:50
cbilljonestomswartz07 basically, its actually a custom unity session i have created, i can pick it from login screen and login, and if i reboot it autologs into that, however if i switch sessions and reboot, it boots into whatever i used last01:51
tomswartz07cbilljones: righto. there's a way to hardcode the session into lightdm's config file01:52
cbilljonestomswartzo7 yes, thats what i need i think :)01:53
dn4hey is 13.04 going to support a macbook pro 5,5 ?01:53
dn4I noticed nothing was written up on it01:53
cbilljonestomswartz07 i is there, what command do i need in lightdm.conf?01:54
tomswartz07change under the [seat defaults] section: user-session=<custom name>01:54
tomswartz07double check your 'greeter session' as well01:54
cbilljonestomswartz07 user session is correct , unity-greeter is unity-greeter01:55
cbilljonestomswartz07 do i change unity-greeter to my session?01:55
tomswartz07hm. I have unity-greeter removed completely.01:56
tomswartz07wait. hang on01:56
tomswartz07yeah - greeter-session is unity-greeter. user-session is the custom name of the session.01:58
SonikkuAmericaYou can use another greeter of course...01:58
Dr_Willisi sort of like the look of the xubuntu greeter. ;)01:59
cbilljonestomswartz07 i have tried running "/usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults --session [session name]" and rebooted, will see if that helps, though i think i did that already02:00
cbilljonestomswartz07 nope, lol still remembers last session arg02:01
PwrSurgefixed it02:02
cbilljonessonikkuamerica i think the greeter is just login page, correct?02:03
=== mini is now known as Guest67238
SonikkuAmericacbilljones: You are right02:03
tomswartz07cbilljones: it's weird that it's ignoring the session info.02:04
cbilljonessonikkuamerica my issue is it is autologging into my last session, not default session02:04
cbilljonestomswartz07 i know, its odd :(02:05
Guest67238hi everyone, is anyone here using 13.10?02:05
wilee-nileeGuest67238, people on #ubuntu+1 are02:06
Guest67238i have 13.04 but for the wireless it takes a while to connect02:06
cbilljonestomswartz07 from wiki.ubuntu.com "The greeter will default to give you the last session you chose, so this option will only change the default session" this my my trouble02:06
SonikkuAmericacbilljones: Is auto-login enabled at all is System Settings > Users?02:06
cbilljonessonikkuamerica yes02:07
tomswartz07cbilljones: did you try this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/146265/programmaticaly-change-lightdm-autologin-session-type02:07
Guest67238is it worth upgrading from 13.04 to 13.10?02:08
cbilljonestomswartz07 no, let me read it over02:08
Dr_Williscbilljones:  the users .dmrc sets what session they use by default overrideing the system default If the .dmrc file exists02:08
cbilljonesdr_willis, .dmrc reverts any change i make after reboot02:09
allengreenThe following packages have unmet dependencies:02:09
allengreen ntop5 : Depends: pfring (= 5.6.1-6725) but 5.6.2-6817 is to be installed02:09
Dr_Williscbilljones:  the user normally selects their session at the lightdm screen,   system reads .dmrc and it uses that as their default session.02:09
allengreen pfring : Depends: linux-image-3.2.0-53-generic but it is not going to be installed02:10
allengreenI don't want to install inux-image-3.2.0-53-generic02:10
Dr_Williscbilljones:  the users .dmrc shouldent change unless they seelct a differnt session02:10
allengreenI just need to remove ntop502:10
cbilljonesdr_willis it seems for some reason pick last session on its own and update .dmrc accordingly02:10
allengreenbut I can't , can anybody hep me.02:11
darkangelHey on https://one.ubuntu.com/referrals/referee/3129888/ how do u get 500 GB free of back up storeage? do u just send link through E-Mail or is there something else u do?02:11
Dr_Williscbilljones:  you mean the autologin is using whats in the users .dmrc and not the system wide default?02:11
mamece2Hello, i need some help with something easy, i have ubuntu and i need to browse a file in my sd external card. how can i do it?02:12
tomswartz07allengreen: try running apt-get dist-upgrade. it almost sounds like you have some packages floating with upgrades02:12
mamece2my phone is an android GS3 with jely bean 4.202:12
=== anonymous is now known as Guest64437
Dr_Willismamece2:  the file manager should show the sd card in its left side panel02:12
cbilljonesdr_willis no, autologin is picking whatever i used last, and editing .dmrc on its own02:12
Dr_Willismamece2:  on a phone.. thats a differnt story02:12
Dr_Williscbilljones:  log out. select what you want, log back in.. then check the .dmrc file02:12
tomswartz07mamece2: you might need MPD support for the new filesystem02:13
Dr_Willisauto login SHOULD be using the last the user selected.02:13
allengreenyes, But I don't wanna install the linux-image.02:13
Dr_Willisand the last they selected they should have saved in their .dmrc02:13
mamece2I though i just need to mount the sd card and voila02:13
Dr_Willismamece2:  easiest thing to do with android devuces is to use 'airdroid' and wifi to get to files02:13
mamece2Dr_Willis:  ive read about that :(02:14
Dr_Willismtp support has improved with each release of ubuntu. some of the old ones had issues02:14
AnonynimityHey does anyone know why Oracle Java v. 1.40 would not work with firefox in ubuntu12.0402:14
cbilljonesdr_willis the problem is the user doesnt pick, it auto logs in. If i remote in, switch sessions and reboot, it reboots into my session; i need to change this02:14
Dr_WillisAirdroid is a Must have issue02:14
mamece2Dr_Willis:  ive 12.04 guess it does support it. i cant get gmtp to work02:14
advxHi All Good Morning02:15
Dr_Williscbilljones:  switch session how? See whats in the users .dmrc file now. keep track of what its changeing to.02:15
Anonynimitydefine notwork mamece202:15
tomswartz07mamece2: sorry- i mean MTP. http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/12/how-to-connect-your-android-ice-cream-sandwich-phone-to-ubuntu-for-file-access02:15
Dr_Williscbilljones:  the user CAN log out and select a differnt session. that should then set their default for  the next autologin02:15
cbilljonesdr_willis it changes to whatever was used last02:15
cbilljonesdr_willis i know, that doesnt help me02:15
cbilljonesdr_willis i need it to always login to default session on reboot02:16
cbilljonesregardless of what was used last02:16
Dr_Williscbilljones:  delete the users .dmrc file02:16
Dr_Willisand perhaps link it to /dev/null ;)02:16
cbilljonesdr_willis what if i make file read only, think that will work?02:17
Dr_WillisNo idea. I dont see why selecting the default session wouldent do what you want.02:17
Dr_Willishow many desktop sessions do you have anyway?02:17
gueriLLaPunKwhat program do you guys recommend for benchmarking a SSD?02:18
cbilljonesdr_willis, selecting it does, but user doesnt get to select, or even know the password for that matter02:18
cbilljonesdr_willis, there is 2 session, regular ubuntu, and POS(default)02:18
Dr_Williscbilljones:  from what ive seen if the user logs out from his auto login session, he can then select a differnt one.  could be you dont have the POS session set up correctly.02:18
Dr_Willisif the user selected POS then that should get entered into the .dmrc file and then be the users new default02:19
cbilljonesdr_willis he can do that already, i dont want him logging out ever02:19
Dr_Willisshould i point out that i have seen KOISK/POS focused disrtos that  may allready solve most of your issues. ;)02:20
cbilljonesdr_williams he doesnt even have means to logout, no menus, no keyboard etc02:20
mamece2tomswartz07: i have jelly bean02:20

Dr_Willisseems theres been a person in here almost every week trying to build their own ubuntu KOISK setup.02:21
Dr_Williswonder how many guides on it are at askubuntu.com02:21
tomswartz07mamece2: that's fine- its the same info with the mtp02:21
tomswartz07cbilljones: do you have more than one autologin user?02:22
cbilljonestomswartz07 no just the one, only one user account at all actually02:22
juzpengJust got ubuntu install first time, with only a couple hickups.., but.02:23
moxTreeDevhi there02:23
moxTreeDevis there anyway to speed things up with ubuntu under VMware Unit?02:23
tomswartz07cbilljones: theres a nuclear option, add a pre-configured .dmrc file to /etc/skel and delete that user.02:23
tomswartz07or add a new one02:24
AdBlocker_ juzpeng: how are you liking it?02:24
juzpengWhen I reboot after install, I am faced with grub.. grub works fine w/ loading "buntu" but won't load windows.  Only way to load win is go into bios and force boot it.  Any help?02:24
tomswartz07this way, the user will get the 'default' config and should always have the .dmrc file thats to be used.02:24
tomswartz07emphasis on *should&02:24
wilee-nileejuzpeng, Windows 8?02:24
AdBlocker_juzpeng: You should get the option to boot to windows and then from windows you get the boot  manager. Then you select to load into windows02:25
AdBlocker_juzpeng: Is that not what is happening?02:25
AdBlocker_boot to windows from grub*02:25
SonikkuAmericajuzpeng: Have you tried [ sudo update-grub ]?02:25
juzpengYes.  I like it- I have a mac too, but was getting frustrated by being locked down.. so I picked up a cheap notebook so I could load win.. so far it's cool.. kinda like how it was before in gnome better than this new unity02:26
AnonynimityMike and Ike went to fetch a pail of water....02:26
Anonynimitylol wrong channel02:26
cbilljonestomswartz07 hmm that sounds scary, lol. Will that screw up any permissions ive setup?02:26
tomswartz07it'd be a lot safer to make a new user with the profile from /etc/skel, but not too much to screw up02:27
tomswartz07just check that the permissions are the same02:27
juzpengYes, win I first had trouble ..but then it install alongside win after turning off turned off fast & secure boot in bios.  It made it kinda large though is there any way to shrink the volume a bit?02:27
AdBlocker_juzpeng: You would have to format that partition, if you partitioned it. Then expand your windows partition from within Windows. Then reinstall Ubuntu with the remaining space.02:28
tomswartz07cbilljones: i fired up my other box here; try changing the lightdm.conf file to greeter-session=lightdm-gtk-greeter02:29
juzpengit get stuck after clicking win in grub02:29
tomswartz07that one autologins to i302:29
AdBlocker_juzpeng: You messed up your master boot record02:30
juzpengCan I go in windows, click computer, manage, and shrink the partion for linux02:30
AdBlocker_juzpeng: Please refer to here: http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-fix-windows-8-mbr-master-boot-record/02:30
juzpengahh.. how do i fix it. lol02:30
cbilljonestomswartz07 ok rebooting now02:30
Dr_Willisjuzpeng:  you dont resize linux partions from windows.02:30
AdBlocker_juzpeng: Also you cannot shrink your partition for linux from within windows. You can overwrite critical system files and mess up the partition itself. You can resize your partition of Ubuntu from within Ubuntu.02:31
juzpengI shrinked my patrion in win that where it installed the ubuntu partion02:32

tomswartz07cbilljones: what shows in ls /var/lib/AccountsService/users02:33
juzpengHey, if I have to take this computer back is there a way to get rid of Ubuntu altogether and make it as though it looks as though its factory fresh without the win 8 dvd02:33
JuslintekHi, I've installed ubuntu desktop on server, but cannot login to my account, only able to access guest account, and when I try to login to my account i'm being sent back to login screen. Anyone experienced this problem? :-)02:33
Dr_Willisjuzpeng:  guys in #windows may know. Most of the time theres a windows -restore partion02:33
wilee-nileejuzpeng, W8 has a complete restore option.02:34
AdBlocker_juzpeng: Yes, you can extend your partition for windows over ubuntu. You should use your windows installation disk.02:34
iKillCypheris Ubuntu 13.10 out ?02:34
juzpengI shrink my partion in win, the i stalled a program called pen drive linux, then booted it from my USB and installed it from there.02:34
juzpengIt didn't come with one.  It doesn't even have a optical disk!02:34
Dr_Willisjuzpeng:  it may have  restore partition. or there may be ways to get a disk or ISO image file you can use from  a USB flash drive02:35
SonikkuAmerica!isitout iKillCypher02:35
AdBlocker_Dr_Willis: Does the ubuntu installation process give the option of formatting a partition/make a partition without installing ubuntu itself?02:35
AdBlocker_I can't remember02:35
Dr_WillisYou can use gparted, or the disk tools from the live cd to do what you want02:35
wilee-nileeAdBlocker_, You have made a whole number of totally wrong claims helping this user, can you like mellow out.02:35
juzpengwill updating grub fix it so i can boot into windows without having to force boot it from bios?02:35
Dr_Willisjuzpeng:  tried the boot-repair tool yet?02:36
AdBlocker_wilee-nilee: Unless you plan on trying to help him, no. I find it kind of funny that you are telling me to shut up when you yourself are not trying to help him.02:36
Dr_Willisgrub should be able to boot the windows install.02:36
tomswartz07wow. such rage. so many angers02:36
wilee-nileehe has good help from Dr_Willis no need to help.02:37
juzpengno was just checking if there was an easy fix somewhere. I don't think I did anything to break it.02:37
Dr_Willisexcept ive never used windows 8 ;)02:37
Juslintekto make things less League of Legends rage way, can you read my message? :-D02:37
AdBlocker_wilee-nilee: Thanks dad. I think I can try and help someone if I want.02:37
juzpengI hate win 8, i would rather much use win xp02:37
tomswartz07so angsty teen. very AdBlocker_. wow.02:38
AdBlocker_tomswartz07: hm?02:38
wilee-nileewubi will not run in W8, it has no mbr, the fix is not bootrec /fixmbr to start with02:38
juzpengcan you customize the new ubuntu like you could do with gnome?02:38
juzpengi didn't use wubui02:38
AdBlocker_wilee-nilee: Are you kidding me? I have installed Ubuntu using wubi on win8 a few times myself.02:38

juzpengso did ubuntu get rid of KDE ?!02:42

cbilljonestomswartz07 i changed xsession in /var/lib/AccountsService/users/volante to my custom one and rebooted; lets see02:43
randomedudeok. I've been using 12.04 on my 60 GB SSD thinkpad x61 for more than a year. A couple weeks ago the system started hanging 10 minutes to an hour after restart or cold boot, without a miss. I took out the SSD and right now I'm using live ubuntu 10.04 from flash and the system hasn't hung for many hours. SSD system check shows everything green/okay.02:44
juzpengI guess im going to restart and see it it's working now.02:44
cbilljonestomswartz07 bingo, i think thats what you were going to suggest, we have success02:44
cbilljonestomswartz07 so looks like ~home/.dmrc reads /var/lib/AccountsService/users and updates itself, thx for all the help02:45
Lee-CHi all,  can anyone give me a tip for how i can keep track of my dynamic IP?  I have a netgear router and used to have a free DynamicDNS account which i let expire.  unfortunately my router only gives me the option to add a dynamicDNS account so not sure how to work around it...02:45
kmystLee-C: sure, just cobble together a script and shove it into a crontab02:46
AdBlocker_Dr_Willis: Did you hear about the universal kernel? It is some kind of hack for wine that let's .exe's run natively on linux.02:46
AdBlocker_I don't really know how to feel about it xD02:47
juzpengOk here what it said when trying to load win 8 loaded on dev402:47

juzpengDo i have to fix win MBR or something02:49
juzpengno I don't think so.02:49

AdBlocker_I'm going back to studying.02:49
Anonynimityokay and is this a windows 8 factory disk or...?02:49
Lee-Ckmyst: thank for that.  i had thought about that but not sure what the best way of doing it would be.  maybe send myself an email?  don't really like that though.  maybe somehow use crontab to automatically update an alternative dynamic dns account?...02:49
Anonynimityalright juzpeng is this an actual installation?02:50
juzpengI found this command02:50
GallomimiaLee-C: that's what i was going to suggest. cron job send packet to machine outside your router, get your ip address, tells you what's where02:50
juzpengsudo apt-get install boot-repair && sudo boot-repair02:51
juzpengworth giving it a shot?02:51
kmystLee-C: here ya go: http://pastebin.com/6KrgQr5K02:52
Lee-CGallomimia: Yeah,  i just don't know how exactly to go about it...  i've used crontab to send myself an email in the past but not sure if my abilities will stretch as far as to do what i want to do.02:52
Gallomimiai wouldn't email it. a simple ssh connection to a computer you control would be best i think02:53

juzpengboot repair said EFI detected is that good?03:00
juzpengbuggy-kernel detected. Do you want to activate [Backup and rename Windows EFI files]?03:00
juzpengshould I press Y, or N.  LOL this could really get ugly.03:01
wilee-nileejuzpeng, Make sure you keep the bootinfo summary url, the latest you have when you use this tool it is a key for getting help, the ubuntu forums is a good place for this there is a thread just for that app by the author of that tool.03:01
randomedudewhat should be the plan of action then? is there a way I can troubleshoot this? I have a sense the crashes started after my last update-manager update, although I might be completely off the mark here03:02
juzpengi install boot repair in ubuntu.. not using a live cd, or USB is that fine?03:02
kmystLee-C: of course you could always extend the concept and instead of email any change to the IP have it SMS it or IM, etc.03:06

bray90820Would installing ubuntu on a flash drive to be able to plug it into any computer really work?05:28
histobray90820: yes05:28
bray90820But every computer needs different drivers05:29
histobray90820: linux != windows05:29
linuxuz3rdepends on the driver05:29
linuxuz3rso no05:29
linuxuz3rif you have an old computer yes05:29
Dr_Willisbray90820:  not every computer needs differnt drivers.05:29
Dr_Willisand most drivers are included by default on ubuntu05:30
histobray90820: even if they need different drivers they are loaded as modules.05:30
histolinuxuz3r: nonsense05:30
Dr_Willisbray90820:  theres also  a 'live' install to flash drive. (like the cd works) then theres a 'full' install to flash drive.05:30
bray90820well i know on one of my computers i need to install wifi manually05:30
bray90820On my MacPro05:30
Dr_Willisit will totally depend on the esact chipset of the device. for legal and other reasons not all the firmwares canbe included.05:31
bray90820So some will work and some will not?05:31
Dr_Willisif you made a live-usb with persistant save, or a full install. you could install the drivers onto the usb05:31
Dr_Willisthen it should work.05:31
histobray90820: You're not installing wifi drivers. You are just adding the firmware that is closed source that can't be freely distributed.05:31
bray90820So by default most computers will work but some will not?05:32
Dr_Willistoo bad there used to be a project that sort of  skirted the legal areas and had all the firmware and other junk on a unoffical extras-cd ;)05:32
Dr_Willishavent seen that project mentioned in years05:32
bray90820the dvd install?05:32
bray90820Dr_Willis: were you talking about the dvd install05:33
histobray90820: you will find more that will work than not.05:34
histobray90820: also your definition of work is a little off. Even those that need firmware still work without a problem.05:34
histobray90820: just wired only05:34

BuzZBladENaeblis, if your booted in and looking at gparted, then something is allocated, you cant use an os thats in unallocated space06:06
Naebliswelp, "/dev/sda doesn't contain a valid partition table"06:06
Dr_WillisIts possible the HD has died.. it would be weird for it to suddendly become unallocated.06:07

techyanIts regarding Ubuntu installation failure06:20
techyanI tried to install Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 12.10 in a P4 PC06:21
histo!pae | techyan06:21
ubottutechyan: To use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info06:21
histotechyan: what was the failure?06:21
techyanUbuntu 12.10 installation is not even starting in my PC06:22
histotechyan: can you describe not starting?  Does anything show up on the screen?06:22
Dr_Willisbooting from dvd? or usb flash or how..06:22
techyanHowever 12.04 installation was successfull , but I am getting internal errors while opening application06:22
techyanAnd it is not restarting.06:23
techyanSome times mouse and keyboard  is not detecting06:23
histotechyan: pick one problem and describe it in detail06:23
Dr_Willissounds like there maybe deeper hardware issues. or a bad install image/burn06:23
techyanThe error message was "could not write bytes: brocken pipes" ?06:25
techyan<histo> Is there any updated hardware support machine desktop list. Just like https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportMachinesDesktopsDell06:26
=== Denza252 is now known as MangaKaDenza
Dr_Willistechyan:  you tried running the memtest from the live cd/dvd for a while as a test to verify theres no ram issues?06:27
techyanThe RAM is working fine06:28
Dr_Willisand how long did you let memtest run?06:29
techyanPass 106:29
techyanPas 1 was success06:29
techyanArround 30min06:30
BuzZBladEthe broken pipes bit could be referring to his video drivers, its not starting 3d unity06:30
BuzZBladEtechyan, you say its a p4, i'm assuming its an onboard intel video chipset?06:31
BuzZBladEthat should be vga compatable...06:32
techyanFor your information, because of this error I installed Ubuntu 12.04 server in the same PC06:32
techyanAnd it was working fine ( CLI mode). Later I installed Ubuntu-Desktop in 12.04 server .06:33
techyanSo lot of internal issues occured.06:33
techyanLike application crashed, system is not successfully restarting etc06:33
Roy_Ubuntu_13-04who is familer with scanmem06:33
BuzZBladEtechyan, hm, so you installed 12.04 server, then desktop over top of it?06:34
techyanI installed the server version because desktop version always crashing06:34
Dr_Willisdesktop and server versions should be pratically identical. except for the desktop bits.06:35
Dr_Willisif you boot to text mode, you dont have any crashing of the cli apps?06:35
techyanIn CLI mode the server version was fine. I installed ubuntu-desktop over it . Because I have to work on some design softwares.06:35
techyanSo again system crashed.06:35
techyanIn text mode everything works06:36
BuzZBladEin the server version you could have just installed the desktop packages06:36
techyanbut in gui its crashing. some times manual restart required.06:36
techyanSome times it wont restart.06:36
BuzZBladEhow old is this hard drive?06:37
foo357Hello, I have a ubuntu 12.04 machine with some packages installed. I recently noticed that there was a PPA that offered these packages (but newer versions and so, of course). How should I go from using the official ubuntu packages to the ppa ones? What would happen if I added this ppa, would APT find out that some packages can be updated or something?06:37
histotechyan: do you have a swap partition?06:37
Dr_Willisfoo357:  thats how it works.. enable ppa. apt-get update, upgrade should pull them in.06:37

ubottuFor lists of supported hardware on Ubuntu see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport - To help debugging and improving hardware detection, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingHardwareDetection06:50

Dr_Willistechyan:  best to keep the chat in the channel. Most of us in here ignore pm's06:51
Dr_Willisthe only real hardware the desktop would be using would be the video chipset/driver that would be differnt then the server.06:52
Dr_Williseverything else is pratically the same btween server and desktop editions these days.06:52

Specifically, I'm trying to set up multi-pathing and for some reason, it's trying to route traffic to my target via all my iscsi ifaces, not just the ones that can actually route to it. I can manually correct this by removing the bindings, but I'd like to stop it binding the target to the other ifaces altogether.07:23

Neo2013#dn4 try to donwload it again08:47
dn4Neo2013: hmmm any recommended ways to download it?08:48

nabn hi. how do i enable alt-tab shortcut to switch appilcations? I am using gnome classic on ubuntu 13.04(64bit). I tried using ccsm, but  the version i downloaded does not have an option where i can enable this. The best it allows me to do is activate 'alt-w' to enable window picker.08:50
dn4Neo2013: I am using a usb thumb stick08:52
dn4maybe I am messing up some where08:52
dn4should my file format on the usb stick be fat32?08:52
Neo2013I always use NTFS08:53
Neo2013because you can put biger files on it08:53
Neo2013Try to format it as NTFS and make a new startup file08:54
dn4maybe I Should just buy a dvd and use that instead of a usb08:54
dn4that normally always works08:54
Neo2013also possible08:54
Neo2013I use vmware workstation if I want to try  a new OS08:55

cjmacmeyou: the :1234 is the port, and [::] is the ipv6 equivalent of, basically08:57
meyouso if that was the only entry with port 123408:58
meyouyou could conclude ipv4 addresses aren't listening on 1234?08:58
cjmacmeyou: I .....believe so, yes.08:59

patAnd it's driving me insane.09:25

Rorymichael87: No, because Chrom/ium uses its own internal way of drawing the window, and the rest of the desktop can't change it09:28
patI'll try the xubuntu chan, thanks09:28
reisiopat: sticky edges?09:29
michael87Rory, damn :(. well maybe one day that will change. I personally love unity and its task menu reminds me of aeroglass. just becuase microsoft wants to flatten everything doesn't mean I have to deal with that crap lol09:30
patreisio: yeah, when i move my mouse from 1 monitor to the other the mouse gets stuck on the middle section for a bit09:30
patreisio: and i have to wiggle it09:30
Roryreisio: on XFCE not Unity09:31
reisioSettings > Window Manager > Advanced > snap windows?09:31
patunity does it for me too09:31

Dr_Willisedge resistance  perhaps.09:31

MrQuistwhile we're at it; i had another window manger (unity or something - the ubuntu default), then i added some option that the window blinks on an alert message. Then a collegue of mine replaced the default one with Cinnamon - now i can't revert the blinking alert sound anymore09:35
RoryMrQuist: They're entirely different desktop environments, Cinnamon probably doesn't even support what you want09:36
patreisio: according to #xubuntu it was that snap windows setting, good work09:36

vmzYep, but it seems related somehow with Ubuntu. I’ve found some similar topics on google with that error and Ubuntu, but not found solution yet.

lashiis there a nautilus expert here? or is there a chan for it?14:03
Dai_1987lashi: just ask your question and see what happens14:04
lashiok, here goes. So, I'm running nautilus version 3.4.2 and when I try and cut a file and then subsequently paste, if the destination drive is a mounted disk, it doesn't let me. I certainly have the right permissions because I can just drag and drop and it copies and I can manually delete. But this is suboptimal.14:05
shyaam_what do you want to know about nautilus14:05
lashiI just wonder whether there is some option to disable the cut and paste when it's a mounted disk? This certainly wasn't the case on older Ubuntu, I believe when I ran 10.10. I'm currently running 12.0414:06
shyaam_did you run nautilus as admin to do this type "sudo nautilus" in cmd prompt and you will be cool14:07

The filesystem is ext4, mounted with noatime. Does anyone has good practices regarding storing millions of files, like using different filesystem or maybe distributed FS?15:50

PeldanSince optirun firefox and optirun steam works16:17
ActionPa1snipjgcampbell300: virtualbox is nice and easy16:17
PeldanI suppose it just doesn't know where to look for the file?16:17
compdocjgcampbell300, I like kvm. you having a problem with what youre reading?16:17
SonikkuAmericajgcampbell300: Why not VMware or VirtualBox?16:17
bjensen82when following the guided setup of partitions, it wants to make a swap and a main partition. I thought it was preferred if you had a /var mount point as well..In case eg. logging goes berserk and doesnt bring down the whole system...have things changed since I checked this out a few years ago?16:18
isashaQuick question: if I create symlinks in a certain directory to various other ones (/media/ and /home/user/ in particular), will I be able to access the entirety of the folders I have linked to over NFS?16:18
jgcampbell300compdoc, not really ... theres just so many options and i get indeciceve lol ... gota start some where .... as for VMware and VirtualBox im pretty sure those are type 2  and i am looking for type 1 ... or if they could make up there mind type 016:18
PeterCassettaPeldan, I would imagine it's something to do with how optirun works. (I seem to remember it running a command as a another user, but I'm not positive about that.)16:18
PeldanBut it SHOULD work?16:19
isashaI must note that with the permissions I have right now accessing all the files over SMB isn't an issue, it's just too slow16:19
PeldanHow does the command optirun work anyways, does it search my whole computer for the file I am referring to or what? PeterCassetta16:19
compdocjgcampbell300, it really depends on your requirments. kvm is better as a server, where virtualbox is better at graphics16:19
jgcampbell300I am sure i dont have a full understanding of it yet so i guess i just need to pick one or two and start building to see some results ... or maybe find a you tube videos16:19
PeterCassettaPeldan: It looks for the file "dota_linux" in your $PATH.16:20
PeterCassettaWhich can be different for different users.16:20
jgcampbell300compdoc, well i have 4 2950's in my dev lab i have access to ... one of them i want to replace my desktop with and have plenty of guest os's ... the other 3 will be loaded with server based stuff16:21
YokoBRGuys, please, my dns service is not working16:21
Beast-have you tried turning it off and on again?16:21
RoryHow do I cd into a directory that starts with a "-" character? I even tried escaping with a \ but I still get invalid argument, how do I escape it?16:21
compdocjgcampbell300, unless theyve changed it, virtualbox doesnt load VMs automatically at boot.16:21
designbybeck_I have a brand new HP 2000 laptop AMD 4GB RAM with Windows 8, I went and disabled Secure boot, andchangeed the boot order. 1304 64bit does start booting and then the whole system shuts down16:21
PeterCassettaPeldan: Run "echo $PATH"; it'll output the value of your $PATH variable to the terminal.16:21
PeldanThing is, I installed both firefox and steam etc at the same time, and they both work. Then I installed dota_linux and it doesn't work with optirun so the most logical thing I can think of is that it just can't find the file16:21
designbybeck_This laptop is going to Africa at the end of the week! I was hoping to have a dual booting system16:22
PeldanThanks, PeterCassetta! Will try putting it there16:22
compdocjgcampbell300, I think VB is more for personal use16:22
designbybeck_I didn't want to setup the Windows8 side, because I want the other person to do that16:22
PeterCassettaPeldan: Just adding "dota_linux" to your path wouldn't do anything.16:22
jgcampbell300ya ... I really want to stay away from type 2 ... i would like to save as much resources as i can for the accual immages insted of the host os16:22
YokoBRIm having some sort of a problem with resolv.conf16:23
SonikkuAmericaRory: use double quotes and no \'s16:23
PeterCassettaPeldan: If you can find the folders in your $PATH, you should be able to locate the "dota_linux" file.16:23
PeldanPeterCassetta: I mean placing for an example dota_linux into usr/games/16:23
SonikkuAmericadesignbybeck_: all right, calm down...16:23
designbybeck_I had another guy with almost the same HP2000 laptop, but he didn't want to keep windows so we didn't worry about this. I don't know if this is a hardware issue or not SonikkuAmerica16:24
SonikkuAmericadesignbybeck_: What do you mean, first off, by changing the boot order?16:24
designbybeck_SonikkuAmerica: so that it booted from the USB and not the main harddrive16:24
YokoBRGuys, ive upgraded from 10.04 server to 12.04, everything looks fine but dns16:25
PeterCassettaPeldan: The main thing that you need to do is find the absolute path of the "dota_linux" file, so you can then try running something like "optirun /full/path/to/dota_linux".16:25
Beast-designbybeck, that can be arainged in the bios, afaik16:25
PeterCassettaSo Peldan, you basically need to find the dota_linux file on your hard drive.16:25
jgcampbell300I do have access to 15 slightly older servers .... I guess i could look more twards building some form of cloud system for the servers16:25
designbybeck_yes Beast- I did do that and I did boot, but the whole computer shuts down while trying to boot Uubntu16:25

Beast-designbybeck_, sorry, just joined the channel16:26
SonikkuAmericadesignbybeck_: You don't do that with UEFI... Do this instead: Change the BIOS boot order back, let it boot into Windows, choose the power menu and hold SHIFT and click Resta4t...16:26
ses1984i think this would be pretty unusual for a big company like oracle to have an invalid cert. the details of the cert say it's issued by verisign and expires in 2014...so it should be valid right?16:26

PeterCassettaPeldan: Just to be clear, running only "dota_linux" works fine, right?16:29
SonikkuAmericadesignbybeck_: Then, boot into Windows, but don't log on.16:29

ubottuModem80: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use the !Unity desktop environment by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown.17:12

Modem80what do u like?17:21
m3kkdtcrshr, lubuntu17:21
SonikkuAmericadesignbybeck_: So it booted to a console? Try [ starts ]17:21
MonkeyDustdtcrshr  linuxlite is light and ubuntu based (but not supported here)17:21
m3kkdtcrshr, but xfce looks nicer.. both are more lightweight than default unity thou17:21
SonikkuAmericadesignbybeck_: Or rather, [ startx ]17:21
dtcrshryeah.. unity is VERY heavy17:21
dtcrshrcomparing to windows 7 that I instlaled double boot17:22
designbybeck_SonikkuAmerica: Fatel server error: no screens found (EE)17:22

MonkeyDustModem80  did you have a ubuntu support question?17:25
dtcrshryeah.. too expensive for a little eye candy17:25
dtcrshractually seeing both screenshots im on doublt between xubuntu and lubuntu17:25
m3kkdtcrshr, the menu is lagging behind and has al kind of delays17:25
dtcrshrxfce seems quite more finished17:25
dtcrshrill give xubuntu a try17:26
Beast-quick question: what can i expect when installing a fresh 13.04 or 13.10 on a SSD? Do i still need to tweak all sorts of settings, or will it just work out of the box?17:26
m3kkdtcrshr, honeslty i have never tried LXDE, give xubuntu a try with the liveUSB/liveCD and see if it feels snappy enough17:26
dtcrshrsure m3kk !17:27
m3kkdtcrshr, if it doesnt.. then create liveUSB with lubuntu and compare =)17:27
limace255xubuntu roxx17:27
* limace255 using this since some years, good stuff17:27
m3kkdtcrshr, i craeted liveUSB with xubuntu and it ran FASTER in LIve session then my current Mint  cinnamon did..amazing17:27
m3kklimace255, +117:27
dtcrshractually on this acer and another student hp notebook, usb sticks with ubuntu wont boot never... I have some sticks with a bunch of distros settled up with sardu or yumi (gparted, ubcd, clonezilla, etc...) that works fine.. ubuntu keeps asking for something on the way17:28
dtcrshrI ressurected an old dvdRW to install them up17:28
cacm3kk, because cinnamon uses OpenGL compositing which will slow down your PC quite a bit17:28
limace255well, some unuseful spent time with older releases, but since 4.8, perfect17:28
dtcrshrm3kk: my personal notebook im using lmde + mate, a low latency kernel and bumblebee package, its AWESOME17:29
m3kkcac, quite a much bit to tell you the truth. that is the way with unity as well? since i use radeon that can be the cause .. drivers17:29
dtcrshrfor instance, on ubuntu unity dota2 give me 18, 20 fps17:29
dtcrshrwith or without bumblebee17:29
dtcrshron mint i get 32, 3617:29
cacm3kk, yes.17:29
m3kkI have never heard of bumblebee17:29
voozeI have a little problem with my laptop-screen.. All the white + gray colors are like yellowish.. I have tried with both 13.10 and 12.04.... When the problem is only on the laptop-screen and not when I plug in the my monitor via HDMI, is the problem 100% the screen (like I need to return the laptop) or could it be somthing else? (its the new Intel HD 5200 Iris pro GPU)17:29
cacm3kk, use open source drivers or catalyst?17:29
dtcrshrm3kk: its a switcher between nvidia optimus vga and intel sandybridge17:30
m3kkcac, open source.. catalyst made the OS perform worse actually17:30
m3kkdtcrshr, oh!17:30

m3kkcac, will you follow me?17:35
cacm3kk, what?17:35
cacm3kk, Fedora has more updated packages17:35
cacXorg versions, kernel versions, mesa versions, etc.17:36
cacdtcrshr, the proprietary ones?17:36
cacAMD proprietary drivers suck.17:36
cacAnd my card is legacy now. Even if I bought it in 2011.17:36
cacGoing to stick with the open source drivers until I buy a Mac or build a PC with Intel graphics.17:37
Ari-Yangcac: fglrx has horrible 2d acceleration.... mesa 9.2 or greater, xf86-video-ati 7.2 is on par with fglrx when it comes to gaming17:37
Ari-Yangthis is with open source radeon driver17:37
dtcrshrcac: the pre-released updates if enabled on your repos will bring up the experimel fglrx17:37
cacAri-Yang, not really. I still get terrible fps with openarena on 1080p with mesa.17:38

cacmy netbook which runs openbsd has 9.2, lol.17:41

cacI ran openbsd on this desktop once, experienced similar if not the same fps with linux when running -current17:42
cacAri-Yang, replying to yourself?17:42

cacAri-Yang, gaming is not on par with my box17:43
cacsource games run terribly17:43
cacopenarena runs terribly17:43
caceverything is slower with mesa17:43
Ari-Yangcac: and you're running 7.2 of the radeon driver?17:43
Ari-Yangcac: and you're using kernel 3.10 or greater?17:43
Ari-Yangcac: if that's the case, then maybe that's why17:43
cacphoronix's benchmarks find mesa is very far from being "on par" with fglrx17:43

blzHello!  I have a laptop that's not always connected to my home network.  Is there a way to automatically mount my home network's NFS shares only when I'm on said home network?17:49
blzWhat's the best way to go about making a user's files unreadable by users not in his group?17:51
Mikey^I run Ubuntu 13.04 and when I use skype (with video), sometimes it automatically logs off.17:51
blzby default it appears that any user can read files from any other user and I'd like that not to be the case17:51
Mikey^When I dont have video, there is no problem.17:51
limace255blz : user/group strategy17:51
andryblz, chmod a-rwx && chown you:you file17:52
minimec_blz: Change the 'properties' of /home/yourname17:52
andrychmod a-rwx file && chown you:you file17:52
Mikey^I have an AMD onboard graphics card. I have installed the drivers from the AMD website. If I use the drives with ubuntu, I see random lines acorss the screen.17:52
=== minimec_ is now known as minimec
blzandry can I just apply that to /home/user ?17:53
andrybetter not17:53
andrythere are some files that need cross-access17:53
bekksblz: If you do, you will break things.17:53
blzbekks, , andry so making one user's files unreadable by other users is a bad idea?17:53
hitsujiTMOblz: that should be chmod o-rwx      not a-rwz17:53
limace255blz: depends the files you want to "protect"17:54
blzlimace255, pretty much the contents of /home/myuser17:54
=== dziegler_off is now known as dziegler
andrythe whole $home is a bad idea, i would apply the rules to only some of the folders inside home17:54
blzandry okay, fair enough17:55
limace255with the entire /home/user, you'll have some errors, like .gvfs17:55
andryjust chown the folder to you:you (not you:users), then chown a-rwx (=all no read/write/execute)17:55
limace255the best choice is, like andry said, choose a folder, put the necessary files inside, and apply your strategy17:55
bekksa-rwx is a bad idea. You dont want others to write things in your home.17:55
hitsujiTMOandry: o-rwx don't you mean17:55
blzandry I'm not very clear on what that means, actually.  Chown me:me means that the group is changed from `users` to `me` ?17:55
bekksblz: What do you actually want to do?17:56
hitsujiTMOandry: a-rwx will set a files permissions to ----------17:56
blzbekks, I just want to make it so that other users can't see the contents of my home folder17:56
limace255chown means the files will be user's ones17:56
andryoops ;D sorry, yes, o17:56
limace255blz: ow, ok17:57
bekksblz: Then run, as your user: chmod 700 /home/user17:57
andryor 700,17:57
blzbekks, right that was what I was originally thinkning, but apparently this breaks things?17:57
bekksOther users shall not see anything, so 700.17:57
andryyes, if it is you:users17:57
blzI'm open to suggestions, but I'm a bit overwhelmend!  Everybody is suggesting something different ^^17:57
bekksblz: a-rwx is the same as 777 which will break things.17:57
blz*overwhelmed, even17:57
bwayneblz: listen to bekks17:57
bekksblz: Run as user: chmod 700 /home/user17:57
andryno, a+ is 77717:58
blzbekks, okay, but won't that break things?17:58
andryhaha yes, just chmod 70017:58
hitsujiTMObekks: a-rwx = 00017:58
bekksblz: No. It will remove access for others but your user.17:58
limace255but normally, if you put yourself in a single group, others users won't have access to your /home, I guess17:58
blzbekks,  and that shouldn't create any problems?  I just want to be double-sure17:58
blzSorry if I'm being a pain17:59
bekksblz: If it does, just run: chmod 750 /home/user17:59
blzbekks, okay, will do17:59
blzbekks, limace255 hitsujiTMO, andry, thanks for the help!18:01
blzNext question:  I have a laptop that's not always connected to my home network.  Is there a way to automatically mount my home network's NFS shares only when I'm on said home network?18:01
andryi wonder if 700 is fine, you can tell us later, if you want18:01
blzandry, I'll definitely be back if there are problems =)18:02
bekksandry: Sure it is fine, unless you want to share contents from your home.18:02
bekksandry: as a regular user on a multiuser system, you want your home to be private.18:03
andrythere are some configs in there .. but as long as you dont chmod recursive to no group access it should work18:03
=== dziegler is now known as dziegler_off
andryyes, but not-readable is a bit more than private18:03
andrymaybe some apps want to read private config files etc18:04

YowlDoes it matter for the sack of LVM whether a partition was made before or after its installation?19:37
trismarussel: it starts ubuntu1, ubuntu2, etc, and the .1, .2 are usually SRU or security updates19:37

arusseltrism: does it always goes up, or restart from 0 each time a new version of the app itself is out ?19:39
bDUC_tozen: I think I might have "sudo make install"'d another version of vte before apt-get install libvte919:40
trismarussel: it resets with each new upstream version, or new debian version depending19:40
bDUC_might this be an issue?19:40
trismarussel: usually the new upstream version goes into debian, and then we get the debian version which resets the ubuntu versioning scheme19:40
trismarussel: basically it just counts the patches we have on top of the debian package19:40
YowlDoes it matter for the sake of LVM  and enhanced data security from resizing partitions, whether a partition was made before or after its installation?19:41
gdostwo part question because i think one is related to the other: 1. how do edit services (which ones start and which ones don't)?  2. my physical audio device has now become my dummy audio device. I followed the instructions here but to no avail (meaning these instructions didn't work for me):   http://itsfoss.com/fix-sound-ubuntu-1304-quick-tip/ (i'm thinking my issue is related to JACK)19:41
arusseltrism: so the 4.1 -> 4.2 would be a security update due to a problem on the packaging, not the root app (I'm assuming here that if curl1.1 get a security update, then it will be moved to 1.2)19:42
jdolesWhy do I not have any working audio device?19:42
trismarussel: no in the case of security updates they are applied as patches to the upstream version, usually backported19:42
raubWhere does network manager store dhcp lease info? Specifically for a wireless connection if it matters19:42

Yowlk1l: Well aware, well aware20:19
raubYowl: the site I gave you has packages for 11.10. They are the latest there will ever be, but that does not mean they will be updated. But, it should get you going until you can upgrade to 12.04+20:19

QuerulousHey all - I've got a problem installing Ubuntu on an Acer Aspire One laptop that seems to be somewhat common - I disabled the Windows function that prevents third-party OSes from being installed(that thing everyone hates), but now it's just showing me the SYSLINUX/Peter Anvin copyright page and won't go past that. The solutions I see online are telling me to change some things in the installation files, but what to change and how se20:23
CherianRight, I just installed 13.04, and I can't seem to get any icons to show. The taskbar right on the top looks really sucky. It looked great on the usb drive, but after the first install it took over two hours to startup and so I forced a restart. Ever since, it's been like this. I've tried the unity --reset option, as well as installing ccsm, but nothing seems to work. I've even installed Cinnamon: it's a little better, but the icons still don't sho20:23

jdolesDo I or do I not need to be in the audio group in order to play audio?20:28
jdolesI have read the wiki, which says "no".20:28
jdolesThe wiki seems to be wrong.20:28
k1lCherian: yes. if its the only video card (if that is not a hybrid combination with a nvidia or ati card). the intel card doesnt need a special driver since its supported with the kernel20:28
jdolesOr if not wrong, very incomplete.20:28
jdolesIs there anyone who actually knows what they are doing?20:29
gordonjcpjdoles: what exactly are you trying to do?20:29
jdolesRandom upgrades of a stable distro like 12.04 LTS should not break all of this stuff.20:29

k1l!notunity | repudiate20:47
ubotturepudiate: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use the !Unity desktop environment by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown.20:47

funktI am trying desperate to rip and tag tracks through puddletag if you have heard of the software and in order to do this I need to import a folder but I cannot find the folder for the audio cd20:51
funktdoes this make sense?20:51
histofunkt: /dev/cdrom20:52
funktOr do you know of any other way if you are familiar with this software?20:52
funktthere is no such directory on my install histo20:53
histofunkt: well substitute for whichever dev for your cd20:53
funktin ask ubuntu it seems to state "Audio CDs are a bit different - there's no actual filesystem there and as such they can't be mounted. "20:53
histofunkt: somewhat true20:54
funkthisto what does that mean?20:54
geniifunkt: Do you have a /dev/sr0 ?20:54
histofunkt: let me read up on whatever puddletag is hold up20:54
histofunkt: how are you going to use puddletag to edit tag info on an audio cd?  They aren't mp3s20:55
funktI know.... slightly confused histo should I rip the cd first as unknown tracks?20:56
funktthanks histo20:56
histofunkt: yes20:56
funktonce i have the files you are saying puddletag will then extract the info?20:56
histofunkt: you need to rip the cd to mp3 or ogg. Then you can use puddletag to edit those files tag information if you want. Although I don't see why you wouldn't just rip them properly in the first place20:56
funktthe reason is once ripped muzicbrainz is very limited20:57
funktwhich seems to be the default database for a lot of the software20:57
funktpuddletag seems to have about four diff music databases20:57
raubA port which is blocked (DROP) in iptables should show up as filtered, right?20:58

SymeAccording to my internet lurking I'm supposed to mess around with installation files in folders like isolinux but it seems to depend on a lot so I'm wondering what I do for a laptop like the one I have21:46
mrkentwylde, ubottu apt-file is similar to apt-cache search?21:46
veryhappySyme: 2 ways to install from usb - usb loadlin or dd if=/path/to/source of=/path/to/destination21:46
karen_o.k. when I put that command in, a bunch of stuff was installed and a few things uninstalled. I didn't see anything about mp3 yet.21:47
wyldemrkent: Yes but it will tell you what packages include specific files. After it's installed you use it like 'sudo apt-file update; apt-file find foo.so.1'21:47
SymeI don't mean to give the impression I'm not an idiot just because I use big fancy words like "isolinux" and "installation files", haha :p - all of this is kind of Greek to me21:48
SymeSo I need to change some text in some file, I assume, to specify a destination or something?21:48
veryhappySyme: i don't suppose you're an ideot. all i need are just further informations.21:48
SymeI'm just kidding, haha - but really, I am pretty lost here, that's all21:48
mrkentwylde, i see, cool thanks21:49
veryhappySyme: what do you want to install for a version?21:49
hewhomustSyme do you want dualboot?21:49
InfandumI am booting into the liveusb and the wifi is not working. I have the error that my hard switch is on so I can't get wifi to work. I tried ubuntu 13.10 and now I'm trying Ubuntu Gnome 13.10 and I have the same problem. There is no hardware switch. I tried turning wifi on and off in the bios but that did not work. I tried the rfkill stuff and that did not work. Any suggestions?21:49
SymeWel I think I have 13.04 Ubuntu on this Kingston DataTraveler USB stick. The laptop I21:49
veryhappySyme: ok21:49
Syme'm trying to install to is totally blank, no OS. I'm typing all this from a different laptop21:49
veryhappyhewhomust: i don't think that's important on this step now.21:49
SymeSo no, not dualboot, just want to put ubuntu right onto the other laptop by itself21:49
veryhappySyme: do you have some kind of linux there?21:50
hewhomustveryhappy,  you can change the partitioning table if its in gpt to mbr much easier21:50
veryhappyhewhomust: didn't know that. thanks for the information.21:50

veryhappySyme: ok, that should be pretty easy if you try dd if of21:51
karen_So, Star-Flower, is there anything more I should do?21:51
SymeTry dd? How do you mean?21:51
veryhappySyme: i'm using an acer aspire 6930g21:51
veryhappydd stands for disk dump21:52
veryhappyit's a terminal program21:52
SymeSo, step by step, what do I do here21:52
mrkentwylde, so I ran apt-file find libexpat.so.0 which returned nothing21:52
veryhappySyme: you can use it like this: dd if=/path/to/image (must be iso afaik) of=/path/to/usb stick (like /dev/sdb or /dev/sdc)21:53
veryhappyand then you press enter21:53
karen_Where do i find mp3    -    in restricted extras? Where's that? or is it in there already?21:53
mrkentand I already have a libexpat as a default package, but it seems that it doesn't provide same files21:53
veryhappykaren_: if you want to install an mp3 codec, better install vlc it comes with most useful codecs.21:53
Warp4karen_, you mean something to play MP3s?21:53
wilee-nileekaren_: to play a mp3?21:54
OerHeks!find libexpat21:54
ubottuFound: libexpat1, libexpat1-dev, libexpat-gst, libexpat-ocaml, libexpat-ocaml-dev21:54
Warp4karakedi, what veryhappy said21:54
mrkentDoes redhat and ubuntu have same file paths for libraries?21:54
YowlI was told dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/<device> for using urandom on a partition, could "<device>" be the label I gave said partition?21:54
SymeI'm confused - do I type that into the terminal here or is that something I do within the Ubuntu installation files?21:54
veryhappySyme: into the terminal, right21:54

karen_well, I wanted to successfully listen to audio books on LibriVox.org, but for some of the chapters there was no sound until I opened it with Rhythmbox, so, Star-flower said to go to command line and get restricted extras which I did. it download a bunch of things and uninstalled a few things, but I don't know what to do now.21:56

veryhappySyme: that should do faster21:56
SymeSo I just copy paste what you just put there into the terminal?21:56

jubaleFoxIt Reader specifically.22:13
veryhappySyme: i'm back, still any problems?22:13

karen_O.K. I don't know how to use the vlc media player with LibriVox.org audio book site.   How do you use it?22:14
theradmanhmmm thanks Ben64, when I log into my beagle bone with a microhdmi cable to an external display, it only comes up as a command line interface22:15
veryhappykaren_: vlc is a player for media files, streams and dvds/vcds etc. it automatically brings its own codecs while installation. that's why the codecs should be installed while installation of vlc.22:15

YowlRory: Will that command randomize only that partition, and nowhere else? Someone else mentioned the possibility of overrun if I don't specify like the exact size of the partitions and it's location on the HDD or something, not a risk?22:31
jubaleShould there be a partition containing only 'lost+found'?22:31
Roryjubale: Yes22:31
jubaleWhy? It's not even mounted.22:31
jubaleIt's 5GB ext3, Ubuntu is installed on ext422:32
veryhappykaren_: it's more difficult to find such games on ubuntu though many games can be found there as well, but in order to get windows games started on ubuntu it's a little bit harder.22:32
dr_williskaren_: theres games in software center. theres steam for ubuntu. some windows games work with wine or  'play on linux'22:32

veryhappywidad_: ok, first i need to know do you want to copy files from and to your computer with your nokia or do you want to use it as a modem in order to get into the internet?22:34
YowlRory: Will it give me a time frame for completion? Or is there a way to check? Can I use the label I gave the partition?22:35

widad_veryhappy, i want just to read my text message. my phone doesn't read some languages and i'm trying to read them22:35
OerHeksYowl, i disagree, because when you set that partition in use, encryption software formats it and there is nothing to see about where is and where is not written data,22:36

karen_Another question here:     Sooooo, I'm really having trouble putting any Linux distro with live cd or on a usb flash drive onto my windows 7 desktop that connects to the internet with belkin N600 DB v.2 wireless adapter.

karen_Is that an absolute no, that kind of adapter?22:37
widad_veryhappy, no it's old it's a 523522:37
wilee-nileewidad_: what ubuntu release 12,04 needs some  additional software for mtp22:38
RoryYowl: That won't increase your security one bit, if you just encrypt a random other partition on the drive. The partition table shows which partition is which22:38
widad_wilee-nilee, mtp?22:38
wilee-nileewidad_: this an adroid?22:38
YowlRory: You seem to misunderstand, I would be encrypting one partition, I would randomize that specific partition before encrypting it. Not another unrelated partition22:39
RoryYowl: Oh I see what you mean. Yes, by all means, that's good practice22:39
widad_wilee-nilee, i don't have an android22:39
veryhappywidad_: i don't think so.22:39
widad_veryhappy, it's not possible?22:39
RoryYowl: Although any encryption tool worth its salt (heh) would randomise the free space anyway22:40
OerHeksYowl even if it does not, you are not going to change that free space in random characters, luks will format your random filling22:40
wilee-nileewidad_:  nokia is  ot running a android platform?22:40

fahadashwilee-nilee: There is a way to fill bad sectors with  fake data so system doesn't use that area right ?22:41
RoryYowl: It is more to do with not being able to recover files that were on the partition before22:41
RoryYowl: If there has never been sensitive data on the partition, it doesn't matter at all. You should use a Truecrypt hidden container if you need plausible deniability22:42
veryhappywidad_: perhaps you can try the program "blueman" in ubuntu22:42
sienezi want to run a script I downloaded from here: http://www.not-equal.eu/myrmedrome/main_en.html#Download. but when I run it I get the above error. so I checked synaptic for lib6 and so I was asking22:42
sienezthe script is supposed to run an ant simulator22:42
compdocfahadash, the problem with bad sectors is they dont stop growing. your data is at risk22:43

karen_does anyone know how to use the ndiswrapper? I don't know how to find the .inf file for my driver. I can find the info when I go into Windows without Linux.22:44
YowlRory: Well I was thinking of encrypting a partition, rather then a container. Isn't that better? And the crypto people I get this randomizing advice from do not advice it to prevent recovery of files that were on the partition before22:44
sienezi'm on ubuntu 13.04 on x86_6422:44
veryhappykaren_: what model do you have there? it's generally always a good idea first to try if there is a native driver for this purpose.22:45
RoryYowl: Id recommend reading through all the truecrypt documentation (background info, not software manuals) because you need to understand encryption to get the most out of it, and I don't think I can explain well enough22:45
karen_I have a belkin N600 DB v.2001 wireless adapter.22:46
wilee-nileeSecretFire: you can block it with grub at boot22:46
RoryYowl: particularly the sections on plausible deniability - it seems you have a need to hide the existance of encryption from an adversary, and it's very important you do it right in that case22:46
veryhappysienez: do you need to compile it?22:46
YowlRory: Well preventing access by noisy individuals borrowing my PC would suffice mostly.  You don't think LUKS is more secure then TrueCrypt? Or no idea/opinion?22:47
RoryYowl: Truecrypt has Windows and Mac clients so it's good for cross-platform22:48
YowlRory: Yeah, but if I spend most of my time in linux..22:48
RoryYowl: Then either is fine22:49
sienezveryhappy, no. it's a simple 2-liner with "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./data/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH; ./data/myrmy" where data contains several .so.0 files, the binary 'myrmy' and some png files22:49
veryhappykaren_: probably there is really no driver for Linux for that.22:49
vimpulsesienez:  Did you try "sudo /usr/bin/aptitude install wine" then "wget http://www.not-equal.eu/myrmedrome/ myrmedrome-v2.1-win.exe" then "wine ./myrmedrome-v2.1-win.exe &"?  Hacky but maybe it will work.22:49

karen_veryhappy, I am very happy with my Ubuntu on my laptop right now which I am typing off of, BUT, if I stick my Slacko Puppy usb flash drive or even any linux live cd in my desktop with the belkin adapter, it won't work, sooooo, if you can just tell me how to do it, I can right it down and try it later. o.k.?22:55
RoryYowl: Yes I use Truecrypt on my desktop machine which dual-boots Arch and Windows, and I use LUKS (I think) on my Ubuntu work laptop (or whatever technology is used by the LVM encryption provided by the installer)22:55
YowlRory: Does Truecrypt have a special boot screen one has to go through, even if only encrypting a nonboot partition?22:56
sienezvimpulse, i would prefer the native program.22:56
karen_"write" it down, sorry22:56
RoryYowl: I don't know, and this is starting to get well outside the realm of Ubuntu support22:56
karen_I do have the cd that the belkin wireless adapter came with. Will that help?22:57
veryhappykaren_: you will have to find the latest windows driver of this belkin adapter and try to load the driver in ndiswrapper in order to get it working.22:58
karen_I'm saying, "I'll try it later," because I don't have another monitor for the desktop to try it.22:58
veryhappykaren_: if you have the driver it might be useful to22:58
veryhappykaren_: i mean if you have the driver on a cd it's useful.22:58

veryhappyYowl: what do you want to encrypt?22:59
karen_Ummm I have the cd that came with the adapter that i had to put in when I got my windows desktop going, if that's what you mean?22:59

Yowlveryhappy: A partition with nonsystem files23:00
karen_o.k. veryhappy, tell me what to do step by step if you are so patient. ummm I wouldn't know how to download the new driver from online site to ndiswrapper.23:01
veryhappyYowl: afaik there should be encryption brought with ubuntu already23:01
yarudlI installed Ubuntu with the 'wipe the drive' option, and when I boot the computer it says no bootable partition found.23:01
Dr_Willisyarudl:  id try out the boot-repair tool from a live cd. its mentioned on the following urls23:01

ubottuyarudl: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)23:02
Tigz4godAnyone here familiar with using playonlinux and league of legends23:02
veryhappykaren_: first you have to download the driver from the internet or copy it from a cd. because this is much easier now, i'm going to try this way. you need to find the driver setup and there should be a driver that you can use for ndiswrapper. then you need to copy the driver to your linux system and move it into any directory that you specify with ndiswrapper -i /path/to/driver then you should just press enter and it should be loading23:03
veryhappyneeds to be loaded should be possible with modprobe -i ndiswrapper.23:03
plut0how do you change mirrors for apt-get using cli?23:03
thumpbawhat is the best ssh for 12.0423:03
veryhappyTigz4god: League of Legends is usable with wine. Install wine for your system and it should already work.23:04
veryhappythumpba: what do you mean with best ssh for 12.04?23:04
veryhappythumpba: do you want to use it for a server?23:05
Tigz4godveryhappy: i have it installed using wine. I was just curious if the extreme length of load screen is normal23:05
=== jalcine_ is now known as jalcine
veryhappyTigz4god: because wine needs a little more time to load it's normal i guess.23:05
Tigz4godveryhappy: thats what I thoguht, I just wnated to knwo if someone could confirm that they have same issue23:06
vimpulseI thought that Wine normally should be just as fast as Windows is.  Except if a game falls back to software rendering.23:06
veryhappyTigz4god: you can change that with a registry that i've made for the windows registry. probably that could work.23:07
karen_o.k.   If there is already a driver for it, because it works for windows, I should download it anyway so I can copy it to Linux? You mean, I'll be able to find the download through ndiswrapper, press where ever I downloaded it and it should enter Linux?23:07
Tigz4godveryhappy: could you elobrate a little for me? What changed should I make?23:08
Dr_Willisvimpulse:  ive seen some games run faster in wine, than in windows. :)23:08
karen_When you open ndiswrapper, it goes straight to your windows files. I don't quite get what your saying there.23:09
veryhappykaren_:  you just copy the windows driver for this adapter into any directory and install it in ndiswrapper23:09
veryhappyTigz4god: write me your email address /msg veryhappy type your email address.23:09
karen_o.k.    into any directory in windows, and then I can find it with the ndiswrapper?23:10
karen_that sounds easy enough23:10
karen_Does it matter, VeryHappy, if the downloaded driver is in any file on windows, because they said to find it in the .inf file, but maybe that doesn't matter just so long it see it and can "wrap" it.23:14
veryhappykicked myself out.23:15

Crazyzurfermy ubuntu is asking to update, I tell it to do it... after asking my password it says that installation of untrusted packages must be installed, I tell it "accept" but it seems to not work, because some time later it asks to update the same packages23:18
suyasereisio: During boot it displays a message stating that query 0x02 failed to the touchpad23:18
suyasereisio: Also, it isn't dirty23:18
wilee-nileeCrazyzurfer, you are missing keys of added repos.23:18
ubottuKeyboard shortcuts can be set in System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts. If your multimedia keys don't work with that, try the 'keytouch' package, explained at http://keytouch.sourceforge.net/ - See !Keyboard for changing layouts. A list of keyboard shortcuts for Unity is available at http://ubottu.com/y/shortcuts23:19
Dr_WillisHmm.i never can rember that repo key factoid23:19
reisiosuyase: only way you could know that is if you cleaned it off23:19
karen_So, let me get this straight... I'm so sorry... Soooo, I go download an upgraded driver for my belkin wireless adapter, put it like in downloads or something in my windows desktop. Then I get on my linux and go into ndiswrapper, find it, and hopefully it will load. Right?23:19
reisiokaren_: which adapter?23:20
suyasereisio: That's correct. I have cleaned it several times.23:20
veryhappykaren_: pretty much23:20
veryhappyreisio: belkin n60023:20
suyasereisio: Also, there is a specific error message at boot that indicates the problem probably isn't dirt.23:20
wilee-nileeCrazyEddy, run tghe update and upgrade in the terminal what ever key you are missing use this to insert it  sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys "put key here"23:20
karen_k, veryhappy,     reisio, it is a belkin n600 db v2 wireless adapter for my desktop that for some reason, no linux distro I try will recognize its driver.23:21
Crazyzurferwilee-nilee: are you telling me that? or you are telling that to crazyeddy, lol23:21
guyguyyo yo23:21
wilee-nileeCrazyzurfer, you sorry23:21
wilee-nileeCrazyzurfer, having a common nick is the problem with trying to use the tab complete, lol on you.23:22

wilee-nileeCrazyzurfer, read the instuctions.23:22

veryhappyreisio: we already figured that out. thanks23:23
Crazyzurferwilee-nilee: now i understand23:23
markovhstrange right?23:23
reisioveryhappy: hence yeah23:23
wilee-nileeCrazyzurfer, cool they will show in the terminal with a update upgrade.23:23
suyaseSo, I updated to raring and my external USB atheros(wifi) adapter no longer works - Ubuntu recognizes it, it appears in the list of adapters, then it promptly vanishes - this happens over and over again23:24
wilee-nileesuyase, You install any drivers to get it going originally23:25
suyasewilee-nilee: linux-image-generic includes ath9k for atheros chipset cards I believe23:25
karen_One more question guys, than I'm scadaddling along.   If I download a audio mp3 thing from that LibriVox thing, can I somehow get rid of that download later? Where is it? This isn't windows.23:25
suyasewilee-nilee: also, it recognizes the card - it just immediately drops it and re-recognizes it repeatedly23:26
suyasewilee-nilee: I don't believe I ever installed any special drivers for that card23:26
Anom01yhey everyone23:26
wilee-nileesuyase, Hmm, that does not answer the question, am I to assume that is a no?23:26
Anom01yI have this strange problem with my graphics, everything works, for a while,23:26
Anom01ythen about 1 or 2 days, maybe a few more even, the graphics get very choppy23:27
wilee-nileesuyase, generally the exact model help, run lsusb and identify it23:27
ccowan_I'm having issues with an Nvidia GTX 660 graphics card and the Proprietary drivers.23:27
Anom01ythe problem is noticeable in the screensaver, and in clementine visualizations (music playing program)23:27
Anom01yit seems all graphics get choppy23:27
ccowan_when I boot into the login screen instead it just flashes between colors23:27
Anom01yso my only solution is to reset the computer,23:27
suyasewilee-nilee: it only appears on lsusb very briefly23:27
suyasewilee-nilee: then it vanishes23:28
ccowan_rainbow bars... black... gray scales... etc23:28
suyasewilee-nilee: this repeats indefinitely23:28
Anom01yI was wondering if there is another way to fix this issue without resetting the computer23:28
ccowan_any suggestions?23:28
moppyccowan_: I had that, do you have nomodeset set?23:28
wilee-nileesuyase, Can you test it on another computer to make sure it works or another OS?23:28
wilee-nileestill works that is23:28
ccowan_I tried that.. same results23:28
suyasewilee-nilee: It works on my other machines just fine23:28
ccowan_moppy ^^^23:28
moppyccowan_: works with nouveau?23:28
suyasewilee-nilee: When I installed raring, I started having many problems23:28
ccowan_yup... works fine with nouveau23:29
suyasewilee-nilee: The problem with the network adapter, and the problem with the mouse (it jumps left and clicks twice every ~2-3 seconds)23:29
Guest95165hey, what should I use to burn my ISO file to a disk for installation23:29
wilee-nileesuyase, To really get any help the exact model is quite helpful to you and us, if it works on other setuos get that info.23:29
wilee-nileeGuest95165, a burner, what OS?23:30
ObrienDaveGuest95165... I use K3B23:30
suyaseit's an AWUS03623:30
reisioGuest95165: don't have a usb stick?23:30
ccowan_moppy... did you just add that to grub?23:30
moppyGuest95165: ubuntu has brasero as standard: what OS are you on?23:30
Guest95165@reisio I'm on windows 7 right now23:30
reisioGuest95165: ...but do you have a usb stick23:30
moppyGuest95165: win7 doesnt need a burner program, it is built into windows explorer23:31
suyasewilee-nilee: Also, the reason I'm telling you this is it's not a problem with the device or the driver - I've checked those several times - it appears to be a problem with ubuntu, not my devices23:31
moppyGuest95165: I assume you mean a DVD-R not a USB, right?23:32
Guest95165yes, but I intended to just use an unused DVD-R that I had lying around23:32
suyasewilee-nilee: As in, ubuntu seems to recognize the devices just fine, then immediately forgets them, then immediately recognizes them again23:32
reisioGuest95165: k, it doesn't really matter as long as you burn the image as an image and not a file, and I'd recommend a slower speed, such as 4x23:33
moppyGuest95165: Well you don't need to download anyhting . Win7 can do it23:33
wilee-nileesuyase, Problem here is almost all wifi and many drivers are reversed engineered to work the problem is with the manufacturers not giving support, using that identification and 13.04 on google I find this, look for yourself. https://www.google.com/search?q=AWUS036+13.04&btnG=Search&client=ubuntu&channel=fs&oe=utf-823:33
suyasewilee-nilee: It's not _just_ the wifi card that is experiencing a problem, and the problems are the same23:34
Guest95165okay, moppy, then how do I do that? (sorry I'm such a N00B)23:34
moppyGuest95165: But when i used windows, i sometimes used Nero. However win7 explorer as a microsoft one built in somewhere, i think you right click the ISO file or someting23:34
ObrienDaveGuest95165... right click ISO, send to "burn disc"23:35
moppyGuest95165: if you're stuck just download any of the numerous windows dvd burnign programs. your pc probably came with one anyway? (becuase apparenty ppl dont know windows does it)23:35
wilee-nileesuyase, Myself, the minute it did not work I would get one that plugged and worked always, they are cheap, it's not worth the hassle in my opinion.23:35
moppyGuest95165: you need to burn the ISO, not the files in the ISO, that's the only tricky thing to remember23:35
suyasewilee-nilee: It has always worked.23:35
suyasewilee-nilee: Always.23:35
suyasewilee-nilee: I upgraded to 13.04 and it stopped working23:36
suyasewilee-nilee: It is not the _only_ problem that 13.04 has caused - I see two of the problems as related23:36

yellowfish2oh nice23:37
yellowfish2any other good web dev IDEs for ubuntu?23:37
suyaseOerHeks: but some of my devices (touchpad, USB wifi card, other stuff) Ubuntu identifies them correctly, and then drops them ~2 seconds later23:38
veryhappyyellowfish2: web dev you say? eclipse or intellij23:38
suyaseOerHeks: So in the case of my touch pad, it's causing my mouse to jump 2 inches to the left every 2-3 seconds when it reinitializes23:38
reisioyellowfish2: yeah, but if you learned Vim you'd be so much happier :p23:38
suyaseOerHeks: The wifi card cannot be used because it reinitializes every 2-3 seconds23:38
suyaseOerHeks: So it's not an issue of using the wifi card23:38
suyaseOerHeks: It's just an issue of getting ubuntu to stop dropping the initialized devices constantly23:39
