new0hitsujiTMO, minimec that weird, i just run netbeans i have downloaded (PHP) and it's seems to run it good and didn't say about no JDK00:05
new0hitsujiTMO, minimec ok. now i took the path that php-linux version i downloaded and put it in the one you give me (minimec) and this time it's giving me the msg of "The specified JDK folder contains JRE, but a full JDK is required.00:08
new0minimec, anyway i am running it now00:11

SysNekohttps://gist.github.com/SysNeko/7260550 I dun goofed my unity panel. Any thoughts on how I can reinstall it?00:13
minimecSysNeko: reinstallation is useless, as your setting is a local settin gfor user 'reiji'. logout/login once. Maybe the value is recreated and reassined to defaults. Otherwise create it yourself with gconf-editor.00:17
SysNekoYeah panel is completely missing in dconf. I tried reinstalling ubuntu-desktop but that of course didn't work.00:18
SysNekoI just need it to fix my xchat systray icon and minimize.00:18
SysNekoBecause I am too lazy to set up irsse on this install.00:18
minimecSysNeko: 'sudo apt-get install irssi' and copy over the .irssi folder isn't that hard... ;)00:20
SysNekoIt is when you are a lazy student. :<00:20
SysNekoI'm just gonna do it00:20

ubukouhey folks, just an opinion im trying to overclock my pc. in the process of doing that i have a dilema that i dont know how to calculate. i have 4 x DDR2 800 CL4 1gb rams and 2 x ddr2 cl5 2gb rams. now im running a combination of cl5 and cl4 . do you think it would be best to run the cl4 and lose 2 gigs of ram ?00:27
bekksubukou: Ask ##hardware00:27

wafflejock!ask | CoolmarioDude00:31
ubottuCoolmarioDude: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience00:31

stevecoh1how, in xubuntu do I prevent it from launching on restart everything it had launched in the previous session?00:34
CoolmarioDudewafflejock thanks.. The machine did run windows xp sp3 about 3 years ago but it was slow.. :| I hated windows xp00:34
wafflejockCoolmarioDude: you're better off running Xubuntu00:35
wafflejockXFCE is lighter weight00:35
histostevecoh1: configure xfce to not save your session00:35
SysNekoSteve just edit the startup items.00:35
ctcbThe download Speed on my Laptop is capped at 128KB/s, whereas my PC gets 512KB/s. That "small" drop is enough to make loading websites, playing YT Videos and even playing Text MUD Games.00:35
wafflejockCoolmarioDude: not as pretty but will be faster00:35
SysNekoOh he is talking about that.00:35
stevecoh1ok, where is that config?00:35
SysNekoThat is annoying00:35
histoctcb: wireless vs. wired?00:35
CoolmarioDudewafflejock, its my dad's computer we are very use to the look of ubuntu00:35
ctcbhisto, Wireless.00:35
histoctcb: yes is the desktop wired?00:35
ctcbhisto, No, they are both Wireless.00:36
wafflejockCoolmarioDude: you can try with Unity  if it's too slow you can install gnome-desktop and choose that at login00:36
wafflejockCoolmarioDude: that should be close to what you have going right now00:36
histoctcb: I would check your link quality perhaps one is getting a worse signal causing slower speeds00:36
CoolmarioDudeAlright thanks :)00:36
stevecoh1In "Session and Startup" I find a list of things it will start, but the ones that keep starting are not listed there.00:36
AxlinCoolmarioDude: It won't perform well, especially considering Unity "requires" 1 GB RAM. Xubuntu or Lubuntu are better suited for those specs.00:37
Dr_Willisstevecoh1:  check /etc/xdg/autostart/00:37
wafflejockCoolmarioDude: np lots of options for DE too https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Desktop_Environment00:37
ctcbhisto: How would I check the link quality on my Laptop?00:37
stevecoh1thank you dr willis00:37
toafanstevecoh1: are these things you've opened, or just stuff?00:37
wafflejockctcb: iwconfig00:38
Dr_Willisstevecoh1:  some desktops have a session memory/save setting where it reopend stuff that was open when you quit.00:38
histoctcb: iwconfig in a terminal00:38
BoreeasIs there a way to see what binary a window is coming from?00:39
ctcbhisto: http://pastebin.com/szvLbAFL00:39
toafanBoreeas: like, what binary executable?  Like, what program?00:39
gfallbackjcbvim trying to install muse 2.1.2 from command line its not letting me make can someone help00:39
Dr_WillisBoreeas:  xwininfo from a terminal perhaps00:40
stevecoh1Yes, Dr. Willis, I'm looking for that setting and not finding it.00:40
Dr_Willisthats tives the window id.. now how to mapt that to a executable..00:40
stevecoh1Like, once, I opened KeePassx.  Now it opens every time I restart xubuntu.00:40
wafflejockthat's a nice one though xwininfo00:41
toafanwindow title may say something useful00:41
stevecoh1Yet I don't see that listed anywhere00:41
toafanstevecoh1: that sounds like xfce is "saving your session", and re-opening it the next time you log in.00:41
stevecoh1Yes, it does.00:41
Dr_Willisstevecoh1:  if its not  in /etc/xdg/autostart/ or ~/.config/autostart/ im not sure where else to look. unless theres some saved sessions for uour desktop. What desktop are you using?00:41
toafanstevecoh1: that's a feature00:41
SysNekoAN anooying feature.00:42
wafflejockin ksysmonitor you can right click a process and show window00:42
stevecoh1However, "Automatically save session on logout" is NOT checked.00:42
Dr_Willislook in .config/xfce4/*   perhaps00:42
toafanstevecoh1: is there a "select a session" popup or something like when you log in?00:42
stevecoh1no, toafan00:42
toafanI got nothing, then00:43
Dr_Willisif the thing starts for a newly made user. then that would point to a  system item starting it.00:43
Boreeastoafan: Yeah. I have multiple thunderbird binaries, and I want to see which one is executed when starting Thunderbird via Alt+F200:43
toafanBoreeas: oh, that... I'm not sure00:44
jeffrey_fGnuPG question:  looking for a bash script to read a file holding only email addresses, search for and import keys if they exist.00:44
toafanBoreeas: there's a way to check terminal ones, you could try that00:44
BoreeasActually, thinkiing about it, 'which thunderbird' might be easier00:44
toafanBoreeas: 'which thunderbird' should help, but if you're running a .desktop file, it may run something else00:45
ctcbWhat are some steps that I could do to make my Laptop not be slow on my Wireless Internet? Before I formatted it with Ubuntu (Instead of Windows 7), It was going at my normal speed. iwconfig gave me this: whttp://pastebin.com/szvLbAFL00:46
wafflejockstevecoh1: haha just tried logging into my remote desktop with XFCE to see if it had something in the settings similar to the options in KDE and I have no system settings manager installed in XFCE00:46
SysNekoSlow internet speed? Or system?00:46
ctcbSysNeko, Slow Internet Speed on Ubuntu.00:46

fatmandownIs there a reason my USB wifi dongle would work on the LiveCD, but when I get the OS installed on my HD, it doesn't?00:47
toafanctcb, internet in general or just that computer?  Just ubuntu, or that computer period?00:47
mjaykfatmandown: any way the liveCD is using a different / older kernal?00:47
wafflejockctcb: I'm getting 20Mbps down and 5Mbps up here :)00:47
fatmandownthat'd be very strange00:47
fatmandowni don't think so00:48
wafflejockctcb: check out ntop possibly00:48
jeffrey_fctcb, what channel is your wireless on.  You may be sharing channels with others in your neighborhood, which will slow you down.00:48
mjaykfatmandown: if its an old iso could be possible but I agree would be strange00:48
fatmandownit's an old dell optiplex 170l- not TOO old, should be able to run 13 but it can't00:48
toafanfatmandown: did you install propritary/non-free drivers when you installed?00:48
=== jim is now known as Guest95827
fatmandowndidn't have internet to do so00:48
wafflejockctcb: also as jeffrey_f said here you can get a WifiAnalyzer app for a smartphone if you've got one and easily get a visual on what channels are used00:48
ctcbtoafan, Just this laptop. It was running at 4Mb/s before I switched to Ubuntu, now it's at 1Mb/s.00:48
SysNekoYeah I have never had a problem with ubuntu effecting my wifi speed00:49
Dr_Willisfatmandown:  boot the live cd. if wifi works.. see whta modules its loading/useing (save the output of lsmod)   then boot the system. and compare its lsmod output00:49
topper4125if he installed an LTS version then the downloaded iso *could* have an old kernal, that would be updated during install if he told the installer to update during install00:49
ctcbwafflejock, jeffrey_f: Channel 6.00:49
fatmandowntopper4125, I didn't use the internet to update00:49
wafflejockctcb: you need to scan to see if that's got a lot of other SSIDs around you on the same channel00:50
fatmandownthis whole situation is very strange.00:50
albeesco04can any one help me with how to install skype00:50
topper4125fatmandown, try Dr_Willis suggestion... that would be useful00:50
SysNekoalbeee what system are you running amd64 or?00:50
ctcbwafflejock, My device changes the WiFi Channel depending on which people are using their routers around me, so that isn't a problem.00:50
jeffrey_fctcb;  in terminal:  sudo iwlist wlan0 scan | grep Frequency | sort | uniq -c | sort -n00:50
jeffrey_fWill show channels being used and how many.  Switch your router to a lesser or unused channel00:50
ctcbBT Call it "Smart Wireless"00:50
Dr_Willisunless its not so smart and  gets confused. ;)00:51
fatmandownanother thing...i'm installing it to an external laptop hd booted via USB enclosure. is there a reason it would hang on creating the ext3 FS?00:51
Dr_Willisfatmandown:  i install/run from external usb flash. hard drive. and sd cards all the time - with few issues.00:52
fatmandownlike, shouldn't that part take about a second?00:52
jeffrey_ffatmandown: are you encrypting your file system?00:52
Dr_Willishow big a ext3? :)00:52
Dr_Willismight take a few min.00:52
jasabellawhere would i find the source code for the man page reader?00:52
fatmandowni've been sitting here waiting for it for at least a minute and a half, I feel like it's hanging00:52
Dr_Willis2min? id say give it about 10 befor worrying.00:53
Dr_Willisusb speeds can be very slow at times. :(00:53
jeffrey_ffatmandown:  does your system show disk activity?00:53
fatmandowni think this whole 'take old computer and make xfce server out of it' is dead00:53
fatmandownthe external hd enclosure light is red, and my CD drive light isn't on00:54
toafanalbeesco04: skype is non-free(dom) software, so I'm going to officially encourage you not to use it.  You have to get skype from their website, they should have a ubuntu version.  Download that (the one that matches your system) and double-click it, IIRC it should ask you for your password and ask if you want to install with Ubuntu Software Center or something else, maybe not in that order.  Beyond that I can't help you.00:54
ctcbjeffrey_f, wafflejock: http://pastebin.com/jc7ic1y800:55
ctcbSee, it is smart, I'm the only one on Channel 6. :P00:55
fatmandownoh wait this is booting from a USB stick installing it on an external hard drive..might explain the time lag00:55
jeffrey_fcould be either the USB is slow or you may have errors on the disk being formatted.00:55
toafan...or he left.00:56
wafflejockfatmandown: yeah USB especially on an old machine probably isn't going to be blazing fast00:56
hitsujiTMOjasabella: apt-get source manpages    or apt-get source man-db    ... not sure which one has the ninary00:56
jeffrey_ffatmandown:  You are moving data from USB to USB, it will be horribly slowed00:56
wafflejockfatmandown: expect lots of waiting00:56
wafflejockfatmandown: USB 1.0 11Mbps 2.0 peaks at 480Mbps00:57
toafanfatmandown: usb-usb is _slow_.  A gig took me like half an hour, I haven't tried the like since.00:57
jeffrey_falmost like dial-up00:57
wafflejockjeffrey_f: lets not get ridiculous :)00:58
wafflejockdial up I'd be waiting 40 minutes for an MP300:58
jeffrey_fhow many wireless devices are active on your router?00:58
fatmandownwafflejock, CD would be faster yeah?00:58
jazzHey y'all, I've got an installation question00:58
jeffrey_fWafflejock:  hehehe00:59
wafflejockfatmandown: yeah I almost always go CD if it's an option... only problems is lots of installs need DVD now and not all old machines have a DVD drive00:59
ctcbjeffrey_f, My iPad and my Laptop. And my iPad is going mega fast compared to my laptop.00:59
fatmandowni have a xubuntu 10 disk here00:59

jazzCurrently setting up partitions in Ubuntu installer. On /dev/sdd I have a windows partition and will be installing Linux (/dev/sdd2, /dev/sdd5)01:00
wafflejockfatmandown:  np best of luck01:00
jeffrey_fctcb: how old is the system in question?01:00
jazzIf I select /dev/sdd as where I want my bootloader... Is that safe?01:01
jazzAnswers appreciated!01:01
jazzOr should I use /dev/sdd501:01
hitsujiTMOjazz: it will overwrite any boot lader that is ther01:01
ctcbjeffrey_f, Brand New, I think it was made late-2012, but this model is new, not second hand.01:01
ctcbjeffrey_f, Does this help at all? http://pastebin.com/GHGwXMuR &01:01
jazzBut not any data?01:01
hitsujiTMOjazz:: boot loader goes in the beginning of a drive not partition01:02
jazzI understand that /dev/sdd2 is my windows partition, but I'm not sure what /dev/sdd is01:02
hitsujiTMOjazz: no wont overwrite data. its less than 512 bytes01:02
jazzSo it'll install grub there and give me the option to boot Windows or Ubuntu?01:03
=== dziegler_off is now known as dziegler
jeffrey_fctcb: http://www.speedtest.net/01:03
hitsujiTMOjazz: /dev/sdd is the drive upon which the /dev/sdd2 partition is01:03
hitsujiTMOjazz: yes grub should give you that option if you boot to that drive01:03
jazzRight, which is why I was naively inclined to think it would replace everything on the drive with a bootloader. :)01:04
ctcbjeffrey_f, My internet is so slow that it won't even load speedtest.net!01:04
jazzSo /dev/sdd it is then01:04
ctcbjeffrey_f, Luckily for you, I did one earlier: http://www.speedtest.net/result/3071889380.png01:05
toafanjazz: think of it as /dev/sdd is a physical drive, and /dev/sd1 /dev/sd2 are partitions01:05
ctcbAnd it was still in my browser history. :D01:05
Dr_Willisjazz:  normally you do /dev/sdX   not /dev/sdX#  for grub01:05
hitsujiTMOjazz: what grub installs is a tiny little bootstrap that tells the bios where to find grub01:05
Dr_WillisI think uefi might differ slightly01:05
jeffrey_fctcb: what speed are you paying for?  just curious01:05
ctcbjeffrey_f, Up to 5Mb/s, I usually get around 4-4.5Mb/s.01:06
hitsujiTMODr_Willis: uefi is veeeery different :P it looks for an efi partiton instead of looking at mbr01:06
wafflejockctcb: ping speedtest.net01:06
ctcbjeffrey_f, Because I'm in a coastal town, we're not getting the UK's Fibre Optic Broadband until 2015. :(01:07
wafflejockctcb: I wonder if you're having some sort of DNS issue01:07
jeffrey_fctcb: and how far from the access point is your system. (walls, floors, etc?)01:07
jazzNow I'm at the Where are you? screen01:07
jazzCan't click continue even after I select my city...01:07
ctcbjeffrey_f, I am literally in the living room, so one door away and a bit of a wall. I usally get 4Mb/s here with my iPad or PC.01:07
toafanctcb, wafflejock: that might explain problems with speedtest.net, but not the general problem01:07
hitsujiTMOjazz... yup should be smooth sailing from there... just DO NOT create or log into ubnutnu one01:08
toafanhitsujiTMO: why not ubuntu one?01:08
MapleyHi. I've noticed that some GTK+ 3.10 applications using header bars contain certain menus. Would it be possible to hide them? See what I mean here - http://i.imgur.com/RVSLJ6E.png? [xpost]01:08
StravQuestion (if anyone can help): Since a few weeks now, It seems I have to reset pulseaudio for it to recognize my usb headset when it's plugged in and Yet, it's detected by alsa's aplay -l. Is there any way I can fix this for pulseaudio to automatically add the usb headset? (resetting pulse cause kde's phonon to display pulseaudio as the only available "device" so the defined device preferrences do not apply anymore (I have to manually01:08
Stravswitch which is the default output device with pavuconrol)01:08
wafflejocktoafan: ctcbwell if he's relying on speedtest.net to check the speed then that could be an issue01:08
hitsujiTMOtoafan: theres a bug in the installer where it hangs at that point01:08
jazzWhy is continue grayed out?01:08
toafanhitsujiTMO: ah01:09
hitsujiTMOjazz: what point are you at exactly?01:09
jazzI type my city, get two drop-down options, click one, continue still grayed out01:09
jazzThe map asking my location right after partitioning01:09
wafflejockjazz: you try just clicking your location on the map?01:09
toafanMapley: that looks like it's not exporting its menu over dbus.  No idea why, is dbus running?01:10
DrGrovHello hello.01:10
toafanMapley: also, you've got buttons in your titlebar.  I can't decide whether to be jealous.01:10
DrGrovHow could I easily remove Ubuntu One and all Ubuntu cloud services on my 13.10 64-bit install? Not that I don't like them but I have no need.01:10

topper4125I used to have a problem simular to this when running programs in sudo (Like the tab menu in gedit if I had more than one document open).. Trying to find out how it fixed it... maybe the fix is simular to the fix in mate01:15
hitsujiTMODrGrov. that's bizarre. maybe irssi saves your lang on inital run. did you cange the lang after ruinning irssi for the first time?01:15
DrGrovwafflejock: Ok. Does a clean Kubuntu install remove Ubuntu One etc.?01:15
Mapleytoafan: No.01:15
MapleyIt's stock.01:16

DrGrovhitsujiTMO: That Amazon thing is just for purchasing basically?01:20
wafflejockDrGrov: yeah money01:21
wafflejockDrGrov: also tracks other info about usage01:21
ctcb_wafflejock, right now I need to figure out what's wrong with my Wireless Chip and why Ubuntu isn't liking it.01:21
hitsujiTMOtoafan: The problem is that they rolled all the dash scripts into the one package as far as i can see. so you can break other functionality in the dash by removing it01:21
ctcb_There wasn't any problems with the laptop before I went over to Ubuntu with internet speeds.01:21
wafflejockctcb_: ah okay so you said the cable did help I didn't get that01:22
hitsujiTMODrGrov: yup... just a sales pitch01:22
ctcb_wafflejock, The cable is giving me a lot faster speeds.01:22
Dr_Willisaskubuntu.com and omgubuntu had an artical about the amazon search lens and how to  disable/remove/work arounds.01:23
Dr_Willisor was it the webupd8 blog site..01:23
ubottuIf you wish not to see "More Suggestions" from places like Amazon in your Ubuntu, simply remove the package unity-lens-shopping, or adjust your Privacy settings as shown here: http://goo.gl/kFO4u . Mark Shuttleworth's blog entry on this is at http://goo.gl/uF7zZ01:24
Dr_Willis13.10 changed some things. so the old wiki info might be invalid.01:24
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: Great, that is a relief.01:24
hitsujiTMOctcb_: what wifi do you have?01:24
JeroihitsujiTMO: no I don't know what is it?01:24
DrGrovBut the online search results is just from Privacy done as hitsujiTMO explained?01:25
ctcb_hitsujiTMO, The card in my laptop, or the router I have?01:25
JeroiI have tried &01:25
hitsujiTMOjeroi: as in scite &01:25

DrGrovDr_Willis: I just tend to keep things as minimalistic as possible. Thanks, will read into that directly.01:27
DrGrovDr_Willis: Been busy doing backup from my old HDD which mobo burned and the missus MacBook I had in use01:27
toafanDrGrov: probably not, actually.  Well, short of changing WMs.01:27
hitsujiTMOctcb_: seems a lot of people are having problems with that one01:28
wafflejockctcb_: not a lot different from mine but Bit Rate = 130 Mb/s for me01:28

ctcb_hitsujiTMO, What can I do?01:29
hitsujiTMOctcb_ so far not seeing any solutions from anyone01:30
irreverantHow can i remove an email account from the taskbar email connection shortcut?01:30
hitsujiTMOctcb_ seems to ba an issue with later kernels too01:30
wafflejockyeah basically at this point I would probably see if I could try another wifi adapter01:31
hitsujiTMOctcb_ what version ubuntu are you running?01:31
ctcb_hitsujiTMO, Ubuntu 13.10 64-Bit01:31
DrGrovDr_Willis: This is wondeful, I remembered webupd8 but not anymore. Been away too long. Thanks for the very good link :)01:31
Dr_Willisnydel:  my main desktop pc waS an asus - was a display model that was on the clearance table at best buy.  it was $100 cheaper then an identical  machine they had on display. :) as in totally identical..01:31
ctcb_wafflejock, Not sure how, since it's intergrated wireless.01:31
wafflejockctcb_: here's the integrated I have01:31
Dr_WillisDrGrov:  about all i ever read is webupd8 and omgubuntu ;)01:31
DrGrovDr_Willis: ;)01:32
DrGrovDr_Willis: I gotta finish the backup first and getting that back and then start installing all the stuff I want :)01:32
wafflejockctcb_: you can just disable that and use a USB one... at least to see if you can get around the issue even if it's not a permanent solution01:32
hitsujiTMOctcb_ you can buy one cheap on ebay.01:32
DrGrovDr_Willis: Do you know of any good stress test to measure CPU etc. on Ubuntu?01:32
irreverantDrGrov you can try burn In i believe that also works on linux distros01:33
=== g_byers is now known as gbyers[Away]
Dr_WillisDrGrov:  theres somej benchmark appsin the repos.  and i recall some of the hardware-testing web sites have their own benchmark sets ported to linux. but ive rarely used them01:33
DrGrovirreverant: Okay :)01:34
DrGrovDr_Willis: Okay :) I just wanted to really test this Intel Xeon E5 processor I bought today.01:34
wafflejockDrGrov: get to compiling01:35
wafflejockDrGrov: download Chromium01:35
irreverantXeons are good01:35
irreveranti used two quad core xeon processors in a single build for a windows server box01:36
DrGrovwafflejock: And compile Chromium to test?01:36
irreverantreally reliable and powerful01:36
wafflejockyeah I think on their site it said it takes a day or something01:36
DrGrovirreverant: The problem I just could afford one :(01:36
irreverantnot a sillicon graphics computer but still gnarly01:36
wafflejockI was gonna do it for a minute but then read the build time and decided I best just download the package01:36
hitsujiTMOwafflejock: wont the compiler only use a single core tho?01:36
irreverantcan anyone recommend a good game from the ubuntu software center thats similar to warcraft/starcraft and thats free?01:36
wafflejockhitsujiTMO: depends on the compiler I believe01:37
DrGrovDo people usually buy Intel Xeon processors for everyday use?01:37
wafflejocknot entirely sure about gcc tbh01:37
DrGrovI wanna have the best darn computer in my small village LOL01:37
wafflejockDrGrov: I have two in the other room :)01:37
DrGrovwafflejock: God damn you! :)01:37
wafflejockthey are being sold though01:37
wafflejockjust here for business, someone else downsizing01:38
jazzhi guys!01:38
hitsujiTMODrGrov: xeons tend to have a longer lifespan,01:38
wafflejockif anyone wants a server btw01:38

irreverantwhat are the3 specs?01:38
jazzso ubuntu seems to think my primary display is the 1080p TV (should be secondary) connected via HDMI01:38
wafflejockno just broed01:38
FloodBot1wafflejock: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.01:38
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: But do people usually buy them for every day use?01:38
jazzI'd like to mirror my displays at 1080p01:38
jazzWeird thing is the login screen uses my 1080p TV as the main, yet Unity loads the Unity Bar on my comp screen....01:39
toafanjazz: is that just how it acts when you connect them, or does unplugging it give you problems?01:39
hitsujiTMODrGov, yes, some of the lower end ones are simplarly priced to the equivalent i5s or i7s ... so why not01:39
jazzWhen I select mirroring the highest resolution I can go is much lower than 1080p01:39
Dr_Willisjazz:  the user can have differnt settings then the system (lightdm)01:39
DrGrovShould I really give compiling a go of something I really want to have?01:39
DrGrovOr is there any better way to test? :)01:40
jazzokay, then i'd like to have the system use compscreen as main01:40
jazznot that it matters if they're mirrored at 1080p01:40
wafflejockirreverant: ah they're 3.2GHz Intel Xeon (can't recall exact part number off hand) 2 x 1TB HDD 8 GB of RAM01:40
jazzthough i guess it matters for the login screen...01:40
hitsujiTMOjazz: you're system profile and personal profile are set differently.01:40
irreveranthow much?01:40
Dr_WillisUbuntu (well the pc) decides my DVI connection is the primary by default. so i get  the login on the tv monitor here.  I then set it to auto login to my user. who has the nvidia settings set to only use the PC monitor.01:40
wafflejockirreverant: asking $1500 on ebay I believe01:40
irreverantis this yours?01:40
wafflejockirreverant: my brother/business partner posted em01:40
wafflejockirreverant: they're a non-profit that down sized01:40
wafflejockirreverant: I helped move some stuff "to the cloud"01:41
jazzDr_Willis, sounds like what I have. Don't want to use autologin though. Solution?01:41
Dr_Willisjazz:  swap video cables01:41
wafflejockirreverant: they were running windows server 2008 I reinstalled win server 2008 with the keys they had01:41
hitsujiTMOwafflejock: that seems a little high priced for such a system01:41
jazzOne is HDMI, one is DVI...01:41
toafanjazz: autologin with autolock?01:41
wafflejockhitsujiTMO: if you compare to other ebay listings it's $500 cheaper01:41
Dr_Willisjazz:  they have dvi->hdmi adaptors01:41
wafflejockthe proc is pricey01:41
wafflejocklike $300 still01:42
jazzI'd rather not bandaid this. Is there really no solution?01:42
jazz(Have the system use DVI as main over HDMI)01:42
DrGrovI really got a non Ubuntu related question. May I ask it here or should I switch to the offtopic channel?01:42
toafanjazz: is this a laptop-type system or a desktop-type?01:42
Dr_Willisjazz:  im not clear on the problem. my DVI port is decided its the main port if both are in use. I can plug it into  the HDMI monitor using a DVI-HDMI adaptor.01:42
wafflejockalso to keep  it on topic I did install Ubuntu on these servers to play with and it works :)01:42
hitsujiTMOwafflejock: hmm, still seems pricey... but then again i just buy blades. so pricing is a little different01:42
Dr_Willisnewer cards have 2 hdmi ports these days.01:42
toafanI suspect you'll find a lot of stuff is bandaid-y01:43
ShinobiIs there a way to mount a dd image?01:43
wafflejockhitsujiTMO: who do you buy blades from?01:43
jazzThere's my computer monitor always connected over DVI, and there's my TV always connected through HDMI01:43
Dr_Willisi cant really tell any differance with using the hdmi->dvi adaptor. I even have DVI ->hdmi video cables.01:43
Dr_WillisShinobi:  the mount commands loop back feature can do it. same as you do an ISO image01:43
jazzNo adapters (my GPU has HDMI port)01:43
wafflejockhitsujiTMO: anywhere I can go for better price comparison? we're just going based on some knowledge of the hardware and other ebay listings01:43
Dr_Willis!iso | Shinobi01:43
ubottuShinobi: To mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.01:43
hitsujiTMOjazz: you could try set up an xorg.conf01:44
toafanjazz, hitsujiTMO: oh gad01:44
=== vemacs|ded is now known as vemacs
toafanjazz, hitsujiTMO: doesn't ubuntu come without a config nowadays?01:44
ShinobiDr_Willis: So even though it's not an iso, just a raw dump of an hdd, it will still work?01:45
hitsujiTMOwafflejock: i'm just going by what i have purchased in the past.01:45
hitsujiTMOtoafan: it auto generates the data, but you can still use an xorg.conf to override it01:45
GeoHi, when doing a ls -l /proc/pid/fd, I see 1 -> pipe:[105923324] ... how can I get more info on that pipe, ie, where is it pointing?01:45
toafanhitsujiTMO: right, but then you have to set everything that it autogenerates without it, don't you?01:46
wafflejockhitsujiTMO: ah was a bit off on the proc price is only $240 but close01:46
jazzguess i'll go ask on /r/ ubuntu. [rant]after 3 years without ubuntu, i was hoping it've matured more by now. bugs in installer, 5 minutes in desktop, and already it looks like i'll have to go muck around in xorg.conf again... sigh.[/rant]01:46
wafflejockhitsujiTMO: dunno they're decent machines I just have no need for them doing my stuff on AWS mostly or on my laptop or deskto01:46
ShinobiDr_Willis: I converted this dd file to a .vdi file and attached to a vm. It didn't boot and when I ran a partition utility to check out the vdi drives, it showed them both as bad. They were NTFS partitions and the software would have know the partition type.01:47
ShinobiIf the dd files are bad, can I salvage anything?01:47
hitsujiTMOtoafan: yes i do. but if the default of what it generates isn't up to scratch then you need to use a xorg.conf01:48
Dr_WillisShinobi:  if its a dd image of a DRIVE - is one thing. if its a image of a PARTITION - is another thing.01:48
Dr_WillisShinobi:  its easier to mount an image of a PARTITION.01:48
Dr_WillisShinobi:  your original dd image would be a 'raw' image i think in vbox terms.01:48
ShinobiDr_Willis: Which one is mountable? Partition, I assume?01:48
Dr_WillisShinobi:  you can mount either one. but for a drive image - you have to give dd some extra info i recall.01:49
toafanhitsujiTMO: no, I mean: if you set an xorg.conf, doesn't it not do any autogenerating, even if you only set one or two things?01:49
hitsujiTMOShinobi: what was the dd command you used?01:49
hitsujiTMOtoofan, it will do some. you can be minimalistic about the xorg.conf01:49
Geo when doing a ls -l /proc/pid/fd, I see 1 -> pipe:[105923324] ... how can I get more info on that pipe, ie, where is it pointing?01:49
ShinobihutsujiTM0: Not sure it was a long time ago, I forget if I dd the paritions separately, or just one big rip.01:50
Jordan_UDr_Willis: Shinobi: To make partitions on a raw image of an entire hard drive available as device nodes so they can be mounted, run "sudo kpartx -a /path/to/disk.img".01:50
Dr_WillisShinobi:  i think you can do   sudo fdisk -l theimage.img   and it may give some info also01:50
ShinobiJordan_U Dr_Willis: nice...01:51
yeyemanwhat the.. ubuntu seem to have changed by key shortcuts01:51
Jordan_UShinobi: Note that that only applies to "vhd" images to the extent that the're just raw dumps of bits from the disk. What did you do to "convert" this image, and do you still have the original? What command did you use to create the original?01:52
hitsujiTMOShinobi: it should be possible to generate a working drive inage from the partition images. you'd prob have to create a dummy and on that create a partition of the same size of an image. then dd that image over that partition01:52
yeyemanhow do I assign keyboard combinations for example open terminal?01:52
Dr_Willishttp://askubuntu.com/questions/69363/mount-single-partition-from-image-of-entire-disk-device   Shinobi  for some reading. ;)01:52
wafflejockyeyeman: ubuntu01:52
wafflejockyeyeman: ?01:53
ShinobiJordan_U: I used dd to create the original and VBoxManage convertdd to convert01:53
yeyemanI used to have super+t, but that opens trash suddenly for some reason01:53
wafflejockyeyeman: ctrl+alt+t usually be default01:53
wafflejockyeyeman: you can change in system setting01:53
Dr_Willisi cant recall it ever being Super-T  ;)01:53
ShinobiAs long as I can get data I don't care how I do it... I think the dds are bad though...01:53
Dr_Willispress and hold the SUPER key on unity to see a list of shortcits01:53
yeyemanno that's what i had set it to01:53
yeyemanbut it has changed all of a sudden01:53
cvtsxsudo apt-get penis01:53
wafflejockyeyeman: yeah when you upgrade and whatnot it sometimes replaces those config settings01:54
Geo when doing a ls -l /proc/pid/fd, I see 1 -> pipe:[105923324] ... how can I get more info on that pipe, ie, where is it pointing?01:54

wilee-nileefdisk does both02:05
new0Shinobi, tnx Willis drives02:06
Shinobinew0: the letter on the output is the drive, the number is the partition02:06
new0i have 2 HDD connected but only see one02:06
hitsujiTMOnew0: lsblk is a nice command for that02:06
Jordan_UShinobi: What is the exact dd command you used to create the image? Are you now working with the original dd'd image or a "converted" one?02:07
new0well, my other HDD was working good until my pc feld on the floor and i was able to run it again and it give me the trying to repair window (win7) anyway after reboot i havn't see that drive anymore02:07
ShinobiJOrdan_U: I'm working with the original, but it was ripped years ago. I don't remember the actual command.02:08

new0ho BUMMER it was 500GB HDD and it's really important for me all the info over there02:10

new0wafflejock, i would try to open the case. it's laptop02:10
arosenHi, is ubuntu13.10 to big to put on a cd and install?02:10

wafflejockadamx: not all older PCs have a DVD drive02:11

wilee-nileearosen, There are net installs 30 mib02:11
wafflejocktill like 10 at least02:11
new0hitsujiTMO, well, how much do u think. it's really important. didn't back up that data. and i have there work more than a year02:11
hitsujiTMOnew0 several thousand for such damage:P02:12
wafflejocknew0: it's thousands to have it clean room02:12

wafflejockwe gotta keep you young wipper snappers in line wilee-nilee02:15
wilee-nileewafflejock, Heh, well I'm one year from 50 years old so you fail. ;)02:16
Jordan_UShinobi: That is not a dd'd image of a whole drive, but of just one partition. Use "mount -o loop".02:16
hitsujiTMOnew0. the best thing to do is take it out of the laptop and shake it gently. if you can hear any rattling or anything then it's definately gone. if there's no noise you need to try it in an external cadd incase its the sata connector on the mobo thats gone or something else there. if it's still not showing up then you need to replace the board on the drive (you'll need to buy the exact same drive) and see if its just the controller that is02:16
hitsujiTMObroken. if that fails ... you HAVE to go to a clean room02:16
wafflejockwilee-nilee: calling me the old man I'm only 30 :)02:16
kostkonnew0, you can use the disk utility in ubuntu, it can show the smart data and run the diagnostics02:16
wafflejockwilee-nilee: why all the angst?02:16
hitsujiTMOnew0, in ubuntu yes ... yes, but if the device isn't even showing up then you cant read the smart data02:16
new0ok, i just touch that drive but don't feel it spin. i know that after it fold i start the laptop and i saw the OS only one time02:17
kostkonnew0, maybe if you could remove the hdd, maybe connect it to an usb enclosure and/or also try to listen what sounds it makes rtc02:17
wafflejocknew0: yeah no spin means either no power or serious damage02:17
wilee-nileeIt's the rhetoric that exposed you, wafflejock No angst just having some fun.02:17
wafflejockwilee-nilee: ah k all good just thought I may have said something to offend, it happens occasionally02:18

ShinobiI can create a virtual disk, dd the mbr back, then dd the partitions back.02:30
hitsujiTMOShinobi: you will need to load a live distro ... and you will need to create the HDD as a bit bigger than the total size of the 2 images02:30

No activity in the problem. So can I selectively disable USB 3.0 port at boot adding kernel parameters?03:47
ubottuUbuntu bug 978891 in linux (Ubuntu Saucy) "[Dell Vostro 3750] ubuntu 12.04 doesn't boot when usb device plugged in (except usb mouse)" [High,Incomplete]03:47
hitsujiTMOdemon: you should have a usb 3.0 legacy mode in your bios menu03:48
hitsujiTMOdemon, or at least some options for it there03:48
intraderDr_Willis, hitsujiTMO the screen is garbled ---> lines unreadable. hitsujiTMO , I will follow with boot sequence03:49
demonhitsujiTMO, I have the latest bios flashed. I could not find any? I will recheck.03:49
enav_lthere i am again, i i switch to the guest account, looks like the problem goes away, how i can truly restore my user configurations03:51
jsmith__why do files turn green?03:52
hitsujiTMOenav_lt: should be sometihng in your .config03:52
hitsujiTMOjsmith__: they do that just be fore they get sick03:52
SchrodingersScatjsmith__: what is permissions?03:52
wafflejockjsmith__: perhaps they have some mold on them? in what context03:52
wilee-nileeenav_lt, Reverse what you have done,03:52
hitsujiTMOjsmith__: most likely its that its set as an executable03:52
hitsujiTMOjsmith__: depends on your terminal colour config03:53
wafflejockSchrodingersScat: I'll take permissions for 50003:53
wilee-nileejsmith__, When and where, never heard of this.03:53
jsmith__cuase when i put permissions on them they trun green03:53
enav_lti dont even know what i did03:53
enav_lti use this computers for web development03:53
enav_ltthat is all03:53
wafflejockenav_lt: is it a big deal to just switch users.. not sure how easy it will be to properly clean up your user config files03:54
wilee-nileeenav_lt, Ah, that is the crux of manipulating the OS to some extent.03:54
SchrodingersScatwilee-nilee: sorry, now I can't read the answer.03:54
hitsujiTMOjsmith__: the termal uses colours to describe attributes for file.... by default bold green is usually an executable03:54
wilee-nileeenav_lt, Ubuntu does not have a recovery to an earlier working set up you have to be aware of your work.03:55
=== RipresaTecn is now known as xanax
wafflejockjsmith__: man ls03:55
wafflejockjsmith__: color is an option for ls03:55
hitsujiTMOenav_lt: try reanming a folder at a time in your .config directory ... until you find the config causing it03:56
jsmith__thanks wafflejock03:56
enav_ltif i delete it, ubuntu will create a new with default values?03:56
hitsujiTMOenav_lt: it should, yes03:56
wafflejockjsmith__: np03:56
hitsujiTMOenav_lt: but some of those configs you want to keep, so just rename03:57

TDJACRHas anybody noticed a slow-down of Firefox recently04:00
TDJACR(In the last two weeks)04:00
wafflejockTDJACR: don't use firefox personally but you prob need to be more specific, using lots of RAM, CPU or internet is slow04:00
TDJACRwafflejock: The UI is not very responsive (at all). It's using average RAM and CPU04:01
wafflejockTDJACR: ah meant is the process using a lot of CPU/RAM if you watch in htop or system monitor?04:01
TDJACRwafflejock: Not more than it used to, and I certainly have plenty of resources left04:02
intraderhitsujiTMO, I did not find where I should insert nomodset; to you mean at the word splash? . By the way when I try to boot 12.04 I get the message 'checking for unatended upgrades'. This is what is interrupted when I type CR04:02
TDJACRwafflejock: I also tried a new FF profile (no history, plugins, etc). Same result.04:02
blausandHi there. After reinstalling nvidia drivers GUI is starting for Guest, but not for me. How do i reset personal settings for Unity or whatever is troubling?          (System will not run in X-failsafe mode at all! root shell of recovery mode doesn't mount my root file system)        (System: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with nVidia Geforce 485GTX, iirc)04:03

DrGrovQuick question. Can I remove the ubuntu-scope lenses without breaking anything?04:35
ProjectRec0nwilee-nilee, hitsujiTMO : so, I use chroot after mnting my linux install drv using the live session, change the grub config and update grub, got it, but how do I say for sure, it's my video drivers? I mean, I'm not sure. Is there a particular log I can look for : Xorg.0.log?04:35
DrGrovRunning 13.10.04:35
wafflejockDrGrov: if you don't want the lense altogether you should probably just go with a different DE04:36
BlueProtomanI just upgraded to Ubuntu 13.10.  I love the return of the terminal built in to Nautilus.  Problem is, when I type slash ("/"), rather than the terminal outputting "/" the breadcrumbs at the top of the window prompt me to enter a new path.  Any tips?04:36
dubby@hitsujiTMO thank you04:36
DrGrovwafflejock: Ok. They are not disturbing me anymore. They are just in there but luckily Privacy did the trick.04:36
x_rootHello, how could i mount a disc/partition in startup?04:36
wilee-nileeProjectRec0n, You can use nomodeset from the grub boot menu.04:37

wafflejockDrGrov: http://askubuntu.com/questions/358989/install-gnome-3-10-in-ubuntu-13-10-without-breaking-unity04:37

dubby@n0per ubuntu software center04:38
hitsujiTMOdubby: np04:38
DrGrovwafflejock: Ok. Probably that is what I would do then. Is Gnome a suitable candidate if I do not want to switch to KDE?04:38
wafflejockDrGrov: if you install another DE you'll end up with lots of packages from both though depending on how much crossover they have04:38
xmetalif you want to try different DE's .. there is no need to (if you dont want to) remove the ones already instealled04:38

wafflejockprofligacy: can you get to a a terminal Ctrl+Alt+F1?05:17
wafflejockprofligacy: wrong perosn05:17
wafflejockPr0jectRec0n: can you get to a terminal Ctrl+Alt+F1?05:17
intraderhitsujiTMO, no, not the live CD, it is 13.10 running. what I want is 12.0405:17
Pr0jectRec0nwafflejock: C+A+F1 - when ? right a tthe point of the kubuntu logo being displayed?05:18
FloodBot1nugroho: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.05:18
wafflejockPr0jectRec0n: no when you get to the black screen where it seems to be running but no display05:18
Pr0jectRec0nwafflejock: wilee-nilee - i am thinking of just deleting/uninstalling fglrx - would that solve my issue?05:18
ionutica-99I have the following problem if I use nouveau unity runs just fine if I install any nvidia proprietary driver it slows down05:18
intraderhitsujiTMO, I don't know how to start Xchat with the live CD - it does not find Xchat05:18
Pr0jectRec0nwafflejock: I can try that, but like I said, the monitor powers off - how would launching a terminla help?05:19
BradTNanyone here really good with software raids :)05:19
wafflejockit switches to a terminal display so it doesn't rely on the graphics drivers05:19
wafflejocker at least not on the desktop environment and have gotten in there when having driver issues05:19
ubuntu_userhello, can anyone please help? what should i check if i'm not able to use 'service' command on particular daemon (munin), it just gives no output at all05:20
wafflejockcan at least see what's going on from there... if you're using a liveCD I suppose that worsk fine to fix things too05:20
Dr_Willisintrader:  you can use the freenode web chat. or whatever irc client is on the cd you have. or install xchat05:20
hitsujiTMOintrader: ahh ok, now i get you05:20
existensilubuntu_user: starting/stopping/restarting many services results in no output05:20
ubuntu_userexistensil: and retrieving 'status'?05:21
hitsujiTMOintrader: more than likely sda1 id your root so try that05:21
Pr0jectRec0nwilee-nilee: wafflejock - here is the Xorg log wit hteh errors : http://pastebin.com/g5z814kd05:21
Dr_Willisubuntu_user:  check the munin logs   and the service status* options to verify the service is running05:21
DrGrovexistensil: The wallpapers are beautiful, the selection UI is sexy as well :)05:21
DrGrovDr_Willis: LOL :)05:21
existensilubuntu_user: yeah, that should probably give you something, but it all depends on the services upstart script05:21
intraderDr_Willis, thanks05:21
wafflejockare all upstart scripts in /etc/init.d/  ?05:22
DrGrovexistensil: Hi again and a really big thank you for the kind help you provided with making the 1TB into /home. Got all stuff back from the old drive. Had to improvise with the 2,5" drive in the 3,5" USB holder LOL05:22
intraderDr_Willis, can firefox do irc?05:22
Kajunfiendhallowed be the Ori05:23
existensillol. watching stargate right now Kajunfiend05:23
Kajunfiendgot another movie to watch on netflix05:23
topper4125intrader, chatzilla plugin for firefox does irc05:23
ubuntu_userexistensil: status didn't output anything too, and there are no useful info in munin logs unfortunately05:23
Pr0jectRec0nintrader: FF doesn't need to do IRC, what Dr_Willis suggested was webIRC05:24
ubuntu_userexistensil: could it be because i created a dummy initctl as a symlink to /bin/true when some commands were giving errors?05:24
existensilubuntu_user: have you tried tailing /var/log/syslog and seeing if anything useful pops up there when you run service munin something?05:24
Dr_Willisintrader:  there are irc extgensions . but the freenode website has an irc client as well05:25
KajunfiendI wish netflix had stargate atlantis... they just started the movies on there so im expecting the series to be up soon05:25
existensilubuntu_user: hehehe. that sounds like it could cause issues. no idea though.05:25
Pr0jectRec0nintrader: for example you   could use mibbit.com or Freenode's own wechat  http://pastebin.com/g5z814kd05:25
topper4125Freenode has a online client on their website, no need to install addons to a browser if you don't want to05:25
Pr0jectRec0nintrader: sorry that link was supposed to be freenode's webchat's : https://webchat.freenode.net/05:25
Pr0jectRec0nany help with my Xorg log?05:26
intraderPr0jectRec0n, thanks05:27
jje_mibbet is banned on freenode.05:28
intraderhitsujiTMO, where do I go from here - I want to boot to 12.04 as 13.10 is faulty and unusable to eclipse or android work.05:28
Dr_WillisKajunfiend:  heh. did that series actually end.. or just fade away.. i so lost interest in it..05:29
hitsujiTMOhave you mounted /dev/sda1 ?05:29
Kajunfiendatlantis did05:29
Kajunfiendbut i dont know about stargate universe05:29
topper4125intrader, do you have them both installed or did you upgrade from 12.04 to 13?05:29
Dr_Willisintrader:  if you use  the freenode webchat. be sure to look in the settings  to disable the part/join messages05:29
existensilKajunfiend, Dr_Willis ... SGU was cancelled after just 2 seasons, SG1 went on to 9, and I think atlantis went to 7 seasons or so?05:31
existensilthey are all gone now though05:31
KajunfiendSGU was unbearable05:31
intraderDr_Willis, topper4125, for now I will boot to 13.10. Thanks05:31

hitsujiTMOintrader: have you mounted /dev/sda1 ?05:31
existensili really liked parts of SGU. i liked the approach of filming it in a more dramatic fashion like Battlestar... they just had some crappy actors and writers mess up the idea05:31
existensilthough i liked the main plumpy young guy05:32
snyh #go-nuts05:32
intraderhitsujiTMO, from which environment?. sda1 is likely to be an NTSF windows partition05:33
hitsujiTMOintrader: from whatever your in ... mount it and we'll fiund out: sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt05:33
hitsujiTMOint intrader look in /mnt and tell me what you see05:34
hitsujiTMOo.O some indian repos have gone down :P05:35

A_J_Hey all, my auto DHCP for my ubuntu pc is not working.. the network connection place keeps loading. please can someone help me05:41
* A_J_ looks around05:43
intraderhitsujiTMO, I think you are a wizard - the paste: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6345273/05:44
A_J_HisaoNakai can you assist me05:45
hitsujiTMOintrader: where did you get the nvidia driver from?05:46
wilee-nileeA_J_, You are not new here and know the rules, follow them.05:46
* A_J_ nods05:46
intraderhitsujiTMO, it was offered as the preferred driver and I activated it05:47
existensilA_J_: just to clarify (not an ubuntu networking expert) are you saying your ubuntu system is not accessing your DHCP server and obtaining a lease, or are you trying to use ubuntu as a DHCP server?05:47
hitsujiTMOintrader: hmm, ok... the kernel module isn't working ... try reinstalling it05:47
A_J_existensil not able to get on the DHCP network at my home.05:47
A_J_it used to work fine till yesterday on auto DHCP. now it's not05:48
OptimizedCoderwilee-nilee, wafflejock : I fixed my video driver issue - it was fglrx :D05:48
Dr_WillisA_J_:  ran the dhclient program yet and see if any error messages come up?05:49
OptimizedCoderCtrl+Alt+F1 -- magically did bring up the console :D - and I just removed fglrx and other dependencies and purged them :D05:49
OptimizedCodernow I'm happily booted into my os..05:49
intraderhitsujiTMO, to do it: dpkg -l | grep linux-image-.*-generic    is this Ok05:50
hitsujiTMOwait ...05:50
hitsujiTMOyour in the wrong system ..05:50
A_J_Dr_Willis a second. just trying to see if it works with a static ip05:50
existensilA_J_: what do you get from these two commands: `ifconfig` and `cat /sys/class/net/eth0/carrier` ? (assuming ethernet at eth0)05:51
hitsujiTMOintrader: can you run these commands: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6345288/05:51
A_J_existensil i won't be able to pastebin you the results as the pc is offline sadly05:52
existensilA_J_: so, it does work with a static IP? just not on auto?05:52
A_J_nop it's not working..05:52
A_J_even though i've specified the IP. the router can't seem to see itr05:52
existensilA_J_: the output from `cat /sys/class/net/eth0/carrier` is only a single character05:52
existensilideally it should be "1". if its "0" then your network card doesn't even think its plugged in.05:53
intraderhitsujiTMO, would this preserve the 13.10?05:53
hitsujiTMOintrader: you're not touching 13.10 at all05:53
intraderhitsujiTMO, Ok, here we go05:54
existensilA_J_: well, there you go. for whatever reason (possibly driver, maybe hardware problem, most likely a bad cable/connecter) your network card says its not plugged into anything05:55
A_J_the light is blinking at the back though.05:55
existensilA_J_: you are using ethernet, right? and when you do ifconfig you only get "eth0" and not some other device starting with "eth", right?05:56
hitsujiTMOintrader: that last line i made a mistake on, so you'll just get an error05:56
A_J_Dr_Willis a dhclient using sudo doesnt do anything.  hangs the terminal05:56
hitsujiTMOintrader: do the others: then it's: sudo chroot /mnt05:56
A_J_eth0 and l0 existensil05:56
existensilhmm. do you know what network card/chip is being used?05:57
existensilwas this working previously?05:57
existensilif the lights are blinking that at least suggests a driver issue05:58
A_J_it's a stock intel board.05:58
A_J_yea it was working till yesterday05:58
A_J_thing is this problem comes along every now and then05:59
A_J_and resolves itself.05:59
existensilthat's weird. ok, now i'm back to thinking its faulty hardware.05:59
intraderhitsujiTMO, no error after sudo chroot /mnt05:59
Dr_Williswired network A_J_ ?05:59
A_J_yes Dr_Willis05:59
Dr_Willismade sur the dog or kids havent chewed on the cables? ;) (personal expernence)06:00
hitsujiTMOintrader: ok, you're now int the 12.04 install ... you can verify this with: cat /etc/issue06:00
A_J_Dr_Willis i went over with a continuity tester06:00
existensilA_J_: yeah, sounds like all thats left to do is start ruling things out06:00
A_J_it seems fine.. plus it works perfectly well in windows06:00
Dr_WillisA_J_:  a test with a live cd - IF the live cd works fine. would verify also i think that the wires are ok.06:00
existensiltry another cable. then i'd try another network card, to hopefully determine if its software or just that one network card06:01
intraderhitsujiTMO, yes it is ubuntu 12.04.306:01
hitsujiTMOintrader: make sure the usual culprits are installed: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-source linux-headers-`uname -r`06:01
existensilyeah, if live cd works its obviously something in the OS06:01
existensilit works fine in windows, eh? have you tried selecting an older kernel on boot with ubuntu and see if it resolves itself again?06:02
wafflejockholy XFCE troubles batmant06:03
wafflejockdidn't have an xorg.conf for some reason06:03
A_J_okie. the wired network keeps conecting and disconnecting in windows06:03
hitsujiTMOintrader: actually that uname -r might cause problems. sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-source linux-headers06:04
wafflejockfinally got that minimal boot CD install actually working yay! more linux06:04
intraderhitsujiTMO, I am unclea about linux-headers- ...06:04
A_J_so i should order a new NIC then existensil.06:04
hitsujiTMOintrader: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-source linux-headers06:04
existensilA_J_: ah, so its again looking like hardware06:04
Dr_WillisA_J_:  id swap out some cables also.06:05
Dr_Willismight get lucky06:05
existensili'd at least try another cable if you have one. conductivity tests don't always tell you what you need.06:05
topper4125!yay | wafflejock06:05
ubottuwafflejock: Glad you made it! :-)06:05
A_J_problem is it's a conceled network, my router is in the other room06:05
A_J_close to 15-20m away06:05
* topper4125 loves minimal installs06:05
existensilah, i see. old laptop that can confirm the cable is GTG?06:06
gsterHi all, does any of you have experience recovering deleted ecryptfs data ?06:06

hitsujiTMOintrader: what servers are you using?06:07
intraderhitsujiTMO, what do you mean 'servers I am using'06:07
hitsujiTMOintrader: what repos are you using? indian repos by any chance?06:08
existensilgster: that sounds like it would be really hard06:08
A_J_existensil let me check06:08
intraderhitsujiTMO, I don't know - I downloaded 12.03.3 iso06:08
gsterexistensil: I have the encryption key though06:08
hitsujiTMOintrader: what country did you set during the install?06:09
existensilgster: ah. wouldn't it be similar to regular file recovery then? you'll just have to unencrypted the recovered file06:09
hitsujiTMOintrader: a better question: what country are you in :P06:09
existensili thought encryptfs was still writing to actual files in an actual directory... they just had encrypted filenames and values06:10
gsterexistensil: this is what I am hoping but I am entirely sure06:10
intraderhitsujiTMO, USA06:10
existensilbut i'm not sure06:10
heedhow do i upgrade to 13.10 ;-;06:10
A_J_existensil it's giving the same problem on annother pc too.06:10
cfhowlettheed, download 13.10.  clean install is the recommended option06:10
hitsujiTMOintrader: hmm ... there's no way 2 sets of server haves gone down  ...06:10
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade06:10
existensilA_J_: oh noes... time to open the wall.06:10
existensilor maybe just remake the ends of the cable06:10
existensilor, if its wall outlets, you know, cut them and repatch them to the outlet06:11
A_J_i don't think i made them that well the first time06:11
topper4125heed, you really only want to upgrade from LTS to LTS for other versions... full install is always recommended06:11
intraderhitsujiTMO, are you suggesting that the iso is bad?06:11
existensilmake sure you have the crossover thing!06:12
hitsujiTMOintrader: no. can you try pinging us.archive.ubuntu.com06:12
existensili haven't made an ethernet cable in years06:12
cfhowlettheed, what ubuntu do you have installed?06:12
A_J_you don't need a crossover from modem -> pc existensil06:12
A_J_atleast i think so06:12
hitsujiTMOintrader: aaah ... the us archive is syncing atm ... thats the problem06:13
existensilsure you do. straight-through is only meant for direct pc-to-pc linking06:13
existensili think06:13
intraderhitsujiTMO, it finished installing Ok and came up ok. Only after running 13.10 I coule not reboot 12.0406:13
existensilhahaha. that was like a decade ago, so...06:13
heededubuntu 13.0406:13
heedgonna install plain ubuntu 13.1006:13
intraderhitsujiTMO, ping: unknown host us.archive.ubuntu.com06:14
kamoriman ls06:14
A_J_existensil can you help me set it up via wifi06:14
existensilA_J_: set what up via wifi?06:14
hitsujiTMOintrader: thats weird ... try pinging ca.archive.ubuntu.com06:14
A_J_connect the pc to the network06:14
existensilDHCP should work over wifi just the same as ethernet... the only difference is the extra step of selecting a network06:15
existensilassuming drivers are all setup06:15
A_J_i don't think for linux they have been setup06:15
intraderhitsujiTMO, --->unknown host06:15
kamoriQuestion, when I read a man page at the bottom it says "See Also" what does the (#) mean next to the names... like, mount(2) umount(2) fstab(5)06:16
hitsujiTMOcrap ... ok, looks like the chroot might not be picking uo the net for some reason .... what way are you connected to the net ... wiki or wired?06:16
A_J_existensil so i plugged in the USB dongle06:16
intraderhitsujiTMO, don't understand06:17
topper4125heed, you could upgrade edubuntu to 13.10, and install ubuntu-desktop...  best of both worlds...06:17
hitsujiTMOintrader: what was is that pc connected to the network ... wifi or ethernet?06:17
intraderhitsujiTMO, don't understand - can you explain what you are driving at?06:18
intraderhitsujiTMO, wifi for this conversation. ethernet for the install of 12.04.306:18
existensilA_J_: yeah, i just plugged in my linux compatible wifi usb dongle, and immediately the networking menu has wifi stuff and a list of SSIDs being broadcast06:19
hitsujiTMOsorry, i'm mistyping a lot on this keyboard ... different layout to what i'm used to. I need you to boot your pc to text mode on the 12.04 ... but you're going to need net access ...06:19
existensilif you aren't getting that then you'll have to figure out what you need to do to get your wifi drivers setup06:19
aditya007hello guys can any1 help me out please??06:19
heedy yes aditya00706:19
topper4125aditya007, just ask... if anyone can answer, they will ;)06:20

hitsujiTMOintrader: what you'll need to do is to the way you did 'nomodeset' ... you'll need to do 'text' instead. then once your in you need to update your apt and install the necessary tools to reinstall the graphics. then you're gonna reinstall the grpahics06:21
aditya007i have win vista bu want to install ubuntu 13.10 wubi isnt working for me its downloading 13.10 iso whre as i already hav a 13.10 iso...I also put them in same folder too...so im gonna install by usb stick using unetbootin but my question is will my win vista will be wiped out?? and will my F:/ drive files be gone??(im installing ubuntu on F:/ drive help please06:21
existensilA_J_: that adapter should be supported natively by any kernel since at least like 11.1006:22
A_J_existensil how do i check if the wifi thing is installed06:22
heynowhey all06:22
existensilA_J_: the networking menu should just have wifi stuff in it06:22
Dr_Willisaditya007:  i think wubi is not designed to work with 13.10  - and wubi is a dead project as far as i know.06:22
existensilit should happen within a couple seconds of plugging it in06:22
Dr_Willisaditya007:  best to not use wubi any more06:22
A_J_you mean the dropdown from the taskbar ( using xbuntu)06:22
aditya007ok thank you and can you please tell the ans o second question if possible?? please06:23
existensilah, yeah, don't know about xubuntu06:23
existensilifconfig shows a wlan0?06:23
Dr_Willisaditya007:  you can resize the windows partions and install alongside windows06:23
A_J_no wlan0 existensil06:23
Dr_Willisaditya007:  you have one hard DRIVE with several partions? or several hard drives?06:23
hitsujiTMOintrader: are you still in the chroot?06:23
existensilah, then drivers aren't working... which is weird, that adapter is said to have good kernel support06:23
aditya007ok so and what about my F drive?? will its contents be gone?? or i can install on F: drive without losing what is on it?/06:24
Dr_Willisaditya007:  #1 lesson.. BACKUP anything you cant afford to loose.06:24
aditya007i have 1 hard drive 320 GB with  5 partitions of 60~ gb06:24
intraderhitsujiTMO, it is now 11:30PM - how long will it take06:24
A_J_looks like it work in the past though. i have a saved config for that wifi passowrd06:24
hitsujiTMOits only a few commands ...06:24
topper4125aditya007, how much avail space do you ahve on your 60 Gig F Drive?06:24
Dr_Willisaditya007:   you can resize, or remove an existing partion and install linux into a logical partion.06:25
hitsujiTMOintrader: would you prefer to wait til tomorrow?06:25
aditya00725 gb is available and i want to give 15-20 GB to UBUNTU06:25
topper4125During install you can specify that ;)06:25
aditya007for example if i have a movie on my F drive will it get deleted whn i install UBUNTU on it??06:26
existensilA_J_: maybe worth restarting, just in case?06:26
Dr_Willisaditya007:  why do you have so many tiny partitions06:26
A_J_tried didnt work06:26
intraderhitsujiTMO, tomorrow I am busy until 3PM06:26
A_J_says wireless is disabled06:26
existensilsorry man. not having much luck to day it sounds like.06:26
hitsujiTMOthats no problem06:27
A_J_in the drop down06:27
aditya007umm..i was a noob back then :P, the computer guy made all these partitions...06:27
hitsujiTMOintrader: i should be around after that to continue06:27
intraderhitsujiTMO, is it not possible to just install 12.04.3 again on top of itself06:27
aditya007OK DR. Willis thank you for helping man and yout too taopper...Im installing with us stick and will take backup of F drive just in CASE TY :D06:28
existensilA_J_: try this: sudo ifconfig wlan0 up06:28
existensilsee if you get wlan0 in your ifconfig afterwards, and if the menu changes06:28
topper4125good luck aditya007 (backups always a good idea;) )06:28
hitsujiTMOintrader: kind of .but you'll still need to reinstall all apps06:28
aditya007yeah thank you :)06:28
A_J_existensil operation not possible due to RF-kill06:28
existensilwhatever that means06:29
hitsujiTMOintrader: it would only allow you keep some configs06:29
existensilA_J_: so it sounds like maybe it sees the adapter just fine but its refusing to bring up wlan for some reason06:29
A_J_i might have disabled it i think06:30
A_J_in the past06:30
A_J_idk how though06:30
existensiloh, wait, do you have it switched off on the adapter?06:30
existensilthat's what rfkill is supposed to be fore06:30
A_J_not physically on ubuntu06:30
hitsujiTMOintrader: can you paste the output of thsi from the chroot: dpkg --get-selections | grep nvidia06:30
existensillike a physical switch on the adapter?06:30
A_J_no.. in ubuntu06:31
topper4125oh... Dr_Willis, wanted to thank you for finding that arcade distro, that arcade machine is coming along nicely now.06:31
existensili'm just pointing out that RFKill is often an actual hardware switch. you sure the adapter isn't turned off?06:31
A_J_there is just one button on the adapter a QSS button06:32
existensiltry: rfkill unblock all06:33
Dr_Willistopper4125:  its working fine with a normal pc monitor? the docs i saw were a little vague on that. ;)06:33
existensilhehe. i'm reaching. i have no idea what the problem is, but these are random commands i'd be trying from google06:34

ZiberI'm running a dualboot with windows 7 and ubuntu 13.04 and in the last few days I've noticed that, on boot, my laptop will take an inordinate amount of time to boot, mostly seemingly frozen at a blank screen with a cursor. What might some commons reasons for this be?06:49
Dr_WillisZiber:  but eventually it does get past it and boots up?06:50
ZiberDr_Willis: usually I don't have the patience and just force-reboot it (hold power button and then reboot)... it takes a few tries, but eventually it comes back.06:51
Dr_Willisso some times it DOES boot up quickly?06:52
topper4125Ziber, don't know if its related or not, but my boot time has increased a bit since the last kernal update (running 12.04.3 in a single OS enviroment)... but not really delayed enough to be annoying, just noticeable.06:52
ZiberDr_Willis: Yes, sometimes. Like 1 in 4 times.06:53
Dr_WillisIt might be worth while to give the pc a good cleaning/dusting and if you can reseat any cards/chips.. that sounds like a potential hardware/flakey connection going on.06:53
Dr_Willisor else the HD is having a really hard time getting up to speeds. (that would be weird)06:54
cfhowlettDr_Willis, unless the HDD was failing06:54
Dr_Willisalso try it with any usb devices Unplugged.06:54
ZiberI suppose I could look into the HD side of things.06:54
ZiberI've never had this problem before... and I typically keep the USB portion of my wireless mouse plugged in...06:54
Dr_Willisive also seen slightly nicked hard drive cables. or flakey power supplies.06:55
ZiberNothing's changed in my laptop, I've never done any HD modifications to it.06:55
Dr_Willisor it could be somthing on the MB is slowly dieing a sad death. I have a old PC thats  fails to boot up at times.. i let it sit and warm up.. and then it reboots fine. Im thinking the heat makes some cold-solder/shorts start working06:56
ZiberThis laptop is only like... 2ish years old.. D:06:56
Dr_Willisbe a ineresting test to see if you canmake a live cd that also repeates the same oddity06:56
Dr_Willis'only'  :)06:57
ripthejackerWhy do we have two different sites. askubuntu.com and ubuntuforums.org? They both do the same?06:57
Dr_Willis2 yrs is a lifetime for some devices.06:57
Dr_Willisripthejacker:  they are not the same.. One is a Forum that has been around for years.. askubuntu uses stack exchange and has been around for just a few years.06:57
Dr_Willis2 years? perhaps 3.06:57
Dr_Willisand the format of how the sites  work  are totally differnt06:58
ripthejackerDr_Willis: Ok so I cannot use askubuntu account to login to ubuntu forums?06:58
ZiberI'll have to try that in the morning.. it's nearly 3am here and time for bed. Just wanted to get some thoughts.06:58
ZiberThanks though.06:58
Dr_Willisripthejacker:  never really noticed.  If they both use that SingleSignON  think you could use the same account06:58

FireSlox*:config or some such.07:12
deper29FireSlox: what do you mean, reset?07:12
deper29like, restart it? or reset settings to default?07:12
FireSloxI dont know really. I just recall another user in here once telling me to run this '*:*' command and it fixed this lag issue im having07:12
FireSloxand i recall it being related to resetting unity07:12
FireSloxi looked up resetting to default and followed that but it did not work07:13

Dr_Willisautomatik:  4mb is  all i ever use.07:57
Dr_Willisaditya007:  Whats up?07:57
automatikok so i used blkid07:58
automatikit tells me the drive name is sdd107:58
aditya007i really F'ed up maan, i installed ubuntu alongside vista, after the installation was finished it asked me to reboot(13.10) so i rebooted then it directly booted into vista without asking to boot in ubuntu....the partition i created is still there, i cannot see it in vista (obviously cause its ext4) but help me how do i open ubuntu now?07:59
automatiki have the following in the terminal sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdd1 bs=4M <- correct so far?07:59
Dr_Willisautomatik:  you deant to delete the partition?07:59
Dr_Willisautomatik:  you wannt to delete the partition?07:59
Dr_Willisthat will zero out the partion /dev/sdd1  correct.07:59
automatiki want to simply get the drive to read/write again if it means deleting or formatting the drive then yes08:00
Dr_Willisautomatik:  you may want to use /dev/sdd  not sdd1 if you want to erase the WHOLE drive08:00
Dr_Willisnot just the one partition08:00
Dr_WillisYou will then need to repartition the drive with gparted08:00
TOM_otakuxi see a news about the kde main developer will give up the ubuntu ?08:00
Dr_Willisyou are SURE its sdd?   dd will erase whatever you tell it to.08:01
Dr_WillisTOM_otakux:  such is the nature of open source stuff.. people come. people go.08:01
wafflejockyeah dd is unforgiving08:01
automatikyes i entered 'blkid' and that was what it returned08:01
Dr_Willisautomatik:  as long as you are sure its sdd.08:01
automatikDr_Willis: gparted is a no go, the drive is in read only mode08:01
Dr_Willisautomatik:  if its truely 'read only' then dd wont be able to write to it either.08:02
Dr_Willisautomatik:  so i guess try dd and see.08:02
LupusHello everyone08:02
LupusI am need of Partitioning assistance08:02
Jordan_Uautomatik: There is no such thing as "read only mode" for a drive (with the exception of some SD cards). GParted will refuse to do anything to a drive with mounted partitions, but the solution to that is to just unmount those partitions.08:02

wafflejockright but chkdsk can do from safemode I think08:10

Dr_WillisZ3R0:  you could just make a link from /media/ to your /home/yourusername/Desktop/media   but if you look in the file manager - the drives should allready be listed at the left side.08:49

Z3R0in console?08:55
theadminZ3R0: Yeah. Be careful not to delete it, as that will (I think) delete the actual folder the link goes to.08:55
xll11whats the -s flag08:56
Dr_Willisln -s => make a soft link08:56
theadminxll11: symbolic. I've no idea what the difference between symlinks and hardlinks is, but you can't hardlink folders.08:56

Z3R0but the one im using right now(default) looks so good :) is it gome or unity?09:01
theadminZ3R0: But it actually makes more sense on the left. That's where all the other controls are aligned, so why on Earth would those 3 be on the right?09:01
theadminZ3R0: Unity is the Ubuntu's default desktop.09:02
auronandaceZ3R0: unity is the default for ubuntu09:02

Dr_Willisif it work after you login. You may just need to do a  'sleep 120'  (or some other # of seconds) befor the command. to let networking get all setup11:33
faugusztinPOVaddct: not sure, in that case there are similar things for networkmanager11:33

Dr_Willisthnee:  check your fstab?  give us details as to what disks you mean11:35
faugusztinCon7e1: in case of NetworkManager you should try to put that command in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d11:35

Con7e1faugusztin: I'll try, thank you again11:36
thneeDr_Willis: Is fstab where ubuntu normally puts all it's auto detected drives? I though that was some gnome-find-all-disks-automagically-daemon?11:36
faugusztinCon7e1: you still know what are you using - networkmanager or sysconfig for network :)... The docs are from Arch, but the point stands https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NetworkManager#Network_services_with_NetworkManager_dispatcher11:36
Dr_Willisthnee:  depends on how you want to mount them. You can put them in fstab and they will mount at BOOTUP befor the user logs in11:37
thneeDr_Willis: I know that... thats not what I asked11:37
faugusztinCon7e1: that is a link for the Network manager case, you will create a script like the one for OpenNTPD, and you will issue your ethtool commands for up11:37
Dr_Willisthnee:  othere wise the desktop normally mounts them on the fly using the gvfs stuff11:37
v0lZyI'm looking for some help in recovering grub... I had a machine that was dualbooting windows and ubuntu 10.04 LTS, now what I did was i used a live cd and the dd command to store the root partition of the ubuntu install (it was in an extended logical partition, which then held 2 partitions, first was root other was swap and i didn tcopy swap cause ill use a swapfile)11:37
Con7e1faugusztin: Thank you man, really. It's been 3 days with this problem lol11:38
v0lZyNow I took the dd image of Ubuntu's root partition and mounted it as an iso in a virtualmachine.. then copied all the files to /dev/sda2 and made /dev/sda2 bootable11:38
uuser100Or does it make more sense to install webrtc and not to upgrade Pulseaudio?11:38
v0lZyWhat I want to do next, is boot ubuntu from /dev/sda2 ... but obviously, I have to fix grub11:39
v0lZyCan anyone help me fix grub2 so that it will boot from /dev/sda211:39

v0lZyCon7e1: Grub is not installed on the virtual machine at all11:41
bekksv0lZy: Then install it...11:41
v0lZyCon7e1: I first need to install just grub11:41

v0lZyI have an archlinux iso here and i can chroot to the mounted partition where i have ubuntu's root11:42
bekksv0lZy: Thats why you shoudl read the links on how to repair grub ;)11:42
v0lZybut after chrooting, i cant really run grub-install ... it says something about boot not being readable et.c11:42
Dr_Willisyou need to set things up befor you chroot.11:42
Dr_WillisThere is a boot-repair/ubuntu live cd. that has the boot-repair tool that may be a good idea to use. Instead of an arch live cd.11:43

bekks!chroot | v0lZy11:43
ubottuv0lZy: A chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot11:43

sifocoolscan we isntall ubuntu in ufi notebook enable?11:44
bekkssifocools: Yes.11:44

bekksv0lZy: Then chroot, and before setup the chroot accordingly.11:45
v0lZybekks: as in... symlink the /dev to /mnt/dev ?11:45
adamkexIf one creates a live Ubuntu USB will changes be saved on it once I use it and download a file on it?11:45

Con7e1adamkex: no11:45
adamkexCon7e1: As I suspected, how can I actually install Ubuntu on a USB?11:46
Dr_Willisadamkex:  if you make it with a perssitant save file on the usb. it can save changes.11:46
Dr_Willisadamkex:  OR you can do a full normal install to a usb flash drive if its big enough11:46
Con7e1adamkex: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/11:46
adamkexDr_Willis: How big must the USB be?11:46
adamkexops sorry11:47
Con7e1adamkex: that's the tool you need11:47
Dr_Willisadamkex:  for a full normal install. id say at least 8gb.. 16+ if you want a useable system for  more normal ussage.11:47
adamkexCon7e1: Thank you11:47
adamkexDr_Willis: I see, thank you for your help11:48
v0lZybekks: how can i mount an already mounted /dev into a /mnt/dev to be seen in the chroot?11:48
Con7e1adamkex: The USB should have at least the size of the ISO + the storage space for the files that you may want to save in the live session11:48
adamkexCon7e1: Ok, thank you for your help :)11:49

morph-u guys got any idea?12:32
ikoniamorph-: what's the actual question12:33
morph-why is the real ip not showing up?12:33
j-stuffhi, I have updated to saucy but there were some errors during the update (my fault). Is there a way to force a new "update" to saucy?12:33
reisiowhich ip do you want to show up?12:33
ikoniamorph-: what real IP12:34
alazyworkaholicreisio: afaik, btrfs has the option for automatically compressing files. I think that if the compression is not enabled when files are written, theyĺl be on the disk in uncompressed size, but if compression is enabled when something is written to the disk, it´ll take up less space. (guessing)12:34
reisioalazyworkaholic: you'd only have to mv them if that were the case12:35
morph-ikonia i just pm'd u iut12:35
ikoniamorph-: just say in the channel12:35
morph-I dont want to post the servers real IP in here12:35
ikoniamorph-: you already have the servers IP in the pastebin12:35
morph-its not in there12:35
ikoniamorph-: the interefaces in pastebin all have IP's12:36
morph-oh crap ikonia12:36
morph-ok so why is it under venet0:012:36
morph-instead of like eth0 or eth1 or something12:37
ikoniawhy is what ?12:37
ikoniamorph-: because it's a openvz container...a virtual machine12:37
morph-is it?12:37
morph-i know the server is OVH12:37
ikoniaI don't know what OVH means12:37
morph-I guess maybe my buddy put a VM on it12:37
morph-dedicated servers12:37

ajfUbuntu's default, GNOME13:26

aibdoesn't it have another default nowadays?13:26
ajfIt feels rather un-nautilus-y now, as if Canonical had rewrote it. probably just my imagination, now13:26
reisioaib: it uses a modified version of GNOME13:26
reisiothe file manager is not modified AFAIK13:26
ajfIt's called "Files"13:26
reisiothat's just a genericized title13:27
ajfWhich appears to be nautilus, as calling "nautilus" on terminal launches it13:27
rularulareisio: advertising, sometimes there were other people, general sense of not being in a private environment13:27

ulikhow do I view the version number of a package that i have not installed but would like to13:57
MonkeyDustulik  apt-cache show13:57
ulikfrom the command line, i search for a package using sudo aptitude search. but i want to see the version numbers associated with those packages13:57
rypervencheulik: aptitude show packagename will do the same thing if you prefer to use aptitude. Note that you don't need to use sudo with the search function on either aptitude or apt-cache.13:58

However, I observed that the the an unfinished upgrade from 13.10 is the cause of the failure of 12.10.3 to finish coming up; a message from acpid: exiting\n\lUpgrading in progress... leads to believe that the problem for 12.04 was cause by 13.1017:42

new0psusi, i want to solve it17:42
hitsujiTMOintrader: a bit odd considering that it should not have touched your 12.04 install at all17:43

DrGrovhitsujiTMO: I have a nVidia GT 620 1GB.18:00
intraderhitsujiTMO, I think that 13.10 is shaky - problems with Eclipse, problems with garbled lines in Xchat and other applications, problems with android SDK, etc18:00
anternatis there a default irc client that comes in 12.04 server install?18:01
trismVivekananda: you need a space between the first dot and the file you want to source18:01
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: I doesn't seem to be the heat. It seems to be the overall noise level, gives a feel that it is running very hard somehow even though it is not using much CPU nor mem at all.18:01
trismVivekananda: . .bashrc18:01
intraderhitsujiTMO, so my preference would be to install 12.04.3 destroying both 13.10 and 12.04. But first update th backup to contain the tomboy notes.18:02
jmgkhey Vivek18:02
hitsujiTMODrGrov: normally for noise pollution like that i just buy a silent fan :P  but it's best to make sure that the cpu isn't on full... install indicator-cpufreq and you can manually set the cpu to its lowest speed. are you on the proprieTARY DRIVERS FOR THE GRAPHICS CARD AT ALL?18:04
zero_codermy computer is freezing at times18:04
zero_coderi am runnning ubuntu 13.1018:04
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: Yes, I am on nvidia-319-updates.18:04
SPEEDWAVEwhat date release of steam os? is that linux?18:04
hitsujiTMOintrader: do you have an external drive that you can images the partitions too?18:04
Vivekanandatrism: thanks. Also after this line in the bashrc -- export CATALINA_HOME=/media/Yojimbo/installationFiles/apache-tomcat-7.0.33/   I try $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh it says  --  bash: /bin/startup.sh: No such file or directory18:05
hitsujiTMODrGov, so at least you should have propper power management for the gpu at least. try playing with indicator-cpufreq so18:05
apb1963so I just had another system freeze... had to do a hard reboot.  ubuntu 12.04 with kde18:05
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: Yes, just installed indicator-cpufreq. Will start it now to see.18:05
hitsujiTMO!ot | SPEEDWAVE: try #steamos18:05
ubottuSPEEDWAVE: try #steamos: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!18:05
VivekanandaI guess I am not executing it by just typing that. right ?18:06
kostkonapb1963, avoid hard reboots, always REISUB18:06
apb1963kostkon: What is REISUB?18:06
apb1963well of course I'm going to try and avoid it...  but the system locked up.18:06
hitsujiTMODrGrov: you mey need to reboot for ti to show up in the systray18:06
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: It showed up without reboot. Started it from terminal.18:07
trismVivekananda: can you pastebin the end of the bashrc so we can look at it?18:07
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: It is set to "ondemand" by default now.18:07
Vivekanandatrism sure18:07
apb1963luckily I was able to open a virtual terminal briefly (you know, with function keys).18:07
kostkonapb1963, keep pressing left ALT + PRNT SCR and then R+E+I+S+U+B waiting 2-3 secs between presses18:07
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: Is there any easy way to add that indicator-cpufreq to run at startup when I log in to Unity?18:08
hitsujiTMODrGrov: set it to the lowest cpu freq and see if the fans start to slow down18:08
intraderhitsujiTMO, a use hard disk may have enough space. You are suggesting to backup the sda5 (13.10) and sda7 (12.04.3)partitions to the hard drive18:08
apb1963during that brief time I was able to start TOP... and see the load climb to over 3018:08
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: Ok, I will set it to the lowest.18:08
SPEEDWAVEubottu, uhmm... ok18:08
intraderhitsujiTMO, 'usb' instead of 'use'18:08
hitsujiTMODrGrov: it will run on startup anyway18:08
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: How long should it take for them to slow done?18:08
apb1963everytime I killed a process that was hogging the CPU, a different process would hog the CPU until I killed it.18:09
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: Ah, it will keep itself there all the time. That is convinient :)18:09
hitsujiTMOintrader: if you dd the partitions you can load them later with mount loop18:09
apb1963first I killed skype... then chrome.... then Libreoffice (soffice.bin)... the load kept climbing.18:09
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: Nothing happens really. It makes all the noise anyhow. So it is not a cpu thing :)18:09
t38apb1963:  how's that VOIP working?18:09
Vivekanandatrism: https://gist.github.com/vvikramjhu/728175318:10
intraderhitsujiTMO, 'mount loop'?18:10
hitsujiTMODrGrov: it should slow failrly quickly. depends on if your cpu is generating heat or not18:10
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: So I should keep it there for quite some time at the lowest?18:10
hitsujiTMOintrader: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loop_device18:10
hitsujiTMOdrgrov you shjould have noticed somethign by now... any difference?18:11
intraderhitsujiTMO, learning something new every time that I read your stuff18:11
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: No, I already switched it to "powersave". No difference.18:11
apb1963then the system froze completely and even the keyboard didn't respond anymore... no numlock or capslock, mouse was frozen....  oh and... I use a clock as my screen saver... when I first looked at the screen this morning the clock was frozen... so now it returned to that screen all by itself and was totally locked.... that's when I did my power out/reboot.18:11
apb1963so to me, it kind of looks like it might be X related... I didn't have these problems until I installed kde desktop18:12
apb1963but then, DBUS is and/or was broken which we all know, right?18:12
apb1963t38:  that works fine, thanks for asking18:12
kostkonapb1963, or something kde related then18:12
apb1963t38: unfortunately... as you notice... I have other problems :(18:13
hitsujiTMODrGrov: might be an idea to get a new cpufan so then. might be an idea to have a look at lm-sensors to make sure the temps are ok: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SensorInstallHowto    but i'm presuming that the cpu fan is just too noisy18:13
apb1963kostkon: like DBUS?18:13
kostkonapb1963, dbus is DE agnostic18:13

kostkonapb1963, i know for example that akonadi was causing problems in the past, for example18:14
apb1963kostkon: well, everytime I reboot the network fails to completely start18:14
trismVivekananda: it looks fine, so you sourced the bashrc first? or started a new shell18:14
Guest48141y'all I have a Seagate Hard Drive and while it shows up in disk utility it will not let me mount with the message "daemon is inhibited" what does that mean?18:14
ozberkguys I installed chromium and it sloved a lot of problem but still thre is one little thing I can't login to chromim18:14
hitsujiTMOthe fan that came with the processor might not be intended for workstation use considering that its a xeon processor. so hopefully swapping that out should be ok18:15
ozberkit refreshes the page :S18:15
apb1963kostkon: I do have akonadi running yes18:15
intraderhitsujiTMO, that is feasible if I find the space in the drive. The drive currenly backs up an Windows XP drive18:15
zero_coderdomann, hi18:15
hitsujiTMOintrader:  boot the live cd and come back to us then. i'll give you the dd instructions then18:15
intraderhitsujiTMO, otherwise, I need to create a new backup that contains the tomboy files and all the rest I need to save18:16
Vivekanandatrism: I changed bashrc and restarted it18:16
apb1963kostkon: so how do I get this fixed?18:16

Vivekanandathen went to Home/ and tried to execute the startup but I guess I am doing the startup thing wrong. dont I need --- sh $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh  instead of just  $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh ?18:17
intraderhitsujiTMO, first find the room in the drive... then I have a business lunch and I will be back at about 3PM CA time. THanks for your help and knowledge18:17
kostkonapb1963, you'll have to find out which proc is hogging your cpu, using tools e.g. like htop18:17
hitsujiTMOintrader: np18:17
pfifook i guess18:18
trismVivekananda: the problem seems to be that CATALINA_HOME isn't set, based on the error message you get18:18
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: How expensive would fans like this be then for a Xeon?18:18
ljunggrenhow do i know what driver im using right now? gpu i mean18:18
trismVivekananda: try: . ~/.bashrc; then run: echo $CATALINA_HOME;18:19
DrGrovhitsujiTMO: I wonder if I could even ask them to switch it for free since I paid much for the machine?18:19
apb1963kostcon: luckily I was able to open a virtual terminal briefly (you know, with function keys). during that brief time I was able to start TOP... and see the load climb to over 30  everytime I killed a process that was hogging the CPU, a different process would hog the CPU until I killed it. first I killed skype... then chrome.... then Libreoffice (soffice.bin)... the load kept climbing. then the system froze completely and even the keyboard didn't respond18:19

apb1963so to me, it kind of looks like it might be X related... I didn't have these problems until I installed kde desktop18:19
hitsujiTMODrGrov: not very. just look for a silent one with a decent brand18:19

RadkosI've tried to configure ubuntu 12.04 to sleep after a period of time I set (5 min. etc.) but from System settings > Power didn't get to sleep, however trying to schedule with cron didn't make it too. Running it manually are making a miracle or closing a lid too but how can I schedule that task. Is there known problem with a cron (I've tried with reinstall too, reinstall the whole system didn't help as well since from live session it's working). user's setting18:20
Radkoss isn't the reason, so what may be the reason? can you help me with that? Note: this laptop isn't available to me by now so if you can just navigate me with a solution(s) I can try it later18:20
semajnadAnyone here able to give me a hand with file permissions?18:21
hitsujiTMODrGrov: its easy enough to change. just have to be careful that you turn the catches the right way and that it locks in propperly when you swap in the new one.18:21

Tomfoolerykostkon, well, I've never deleted any of my hidden folders or even looked at them before18:43

Tomfoolerykostkon, I'm not familiar with what it's meant to look like. All the numbers are "00" should I manually change them to fix it?18:45
zykotick9sedeki: sorry, perhaps i misunderstood - i thought you where asking what is in my xorg.conf.d directory (i'm not on ubuntu, thus my useless reply).  xorg.conf.d is used for "snippets" to config Xorg (it's the modern replacement for xorg.conf)18:45
kostkonTomfoolery, press left right arrows to go through them, then the up down arrows to chage the levels, yeah 00 is bad, try increasing it18:46
kostkonTomfoolery, depends of the volume, if it is an volume level for an output channel try increasing to 10018:47
Tomfoolerykostkon, oh ok, my bad,  maste ris actually at 10018:47

adamubootloop: do you have multiple operating systems installed does this happen with other ones maybe it is something in the bios19:02
Doinkreboots on power back19:02
krzkk so sudo shutdown -h now is safe ya?19:02
semajnadapb1963:  I did look into chroot, but in the end this method seemed to work, just not when I put them other user in the picture. I've found a way to lock them to the directory, but the problem is the login details for FTP still let them log into something like Putty. Can you think of a way around this?19:02
bootloop_adamu: no, this is a brand new system I just put together about an hour ago.  No other operating systems besides Ubuntu 13.1019:02
bekksDoink: There is no such bios setting, since that would make it impossible to power off a computer.19:02
krzjust the same way as doing it from the menu on the to right?19:02
semajnadapb1963:  I just can't have the FTP user getting command line access.19:02

kostkonTomfoolery, actually, do the cmd: ps -ef | grep pulseaudio  give you 3 lines of output?  when changing users do you log out first or you just use the menu in the upper right to select users19:03
Doinki have in my bios19:03
pfifosemajnad: you could set his shell to /bin/false19:03
kostkonTomfoolery, does the command*19:03
delinquentmehas anyone gotten ubuntu 12.04 up and running installed on a lenovo IdeaPad ?19:03
semajnadpfifo:  That's true, the only issue is that I need to run a executable in his home directory19:03
semajnadpfifo: So don';t I need command line access to do that? Or can you do it some other way?19:04
bootloop_adamu: any other ideas?19:04
adamubootloop: I would check in the bios then19:04
delinquentmeI keep having these silly startup issues on this lenovo  Y510P19:04
pfifosemajnad: how is he running it now if he dosent have command line?19:04
bootloop_adamu: what should I be looking for?19:04
Doinkbootloop_, cycle power and enter bios, search for power on boot / reboot after power fail ,, something like this19:05
Doinkchage it to not boot after power off on19:05
adamubootloop: as Doink said look for power on after power fail19:05
semajnadpfifo: This is all just theory at the moment I'm trying to work out how to do this before I hand it over to him. Theres an executable in net001's home directory that i need to run, without letting net001 have SSH access19:05
apb1963semajnad: personally I don't see a way to avoid giving the user command line access unless he's running a restricted shell.  Maybe someone else can think of something.19:05
apb1963semajnad: If you just want to restrict ssh access, that's different from not giving him command line access.19:06
pfifosemajnad: so how are you proposing to get the file to run?19:06
Doinkpage 3 on dells19:06
semajnadpfifo: That's my issue. apb1963 Can you stop a user using ANY commands except 1?19:06
apb1963semajnad: If I only needed to run one command, I would probably make that command his shell.19:07
semajnadapb1963: All I need them to be able to do is ./MCMA2_x86_6419:07
eerIs there an upper limit of RAM for Ubuntu? I mean is the more the better or is there a limit where it doesn make sense to add more RAM.19:07
semajnadapb1963: His shell?>19:07
semajnadapb1963: This sounds promising :P What does that mean?19:07
bootloop_Doink:  I figured it out.19:07
bootloop_Doink:  it was a setting called "Wake on LAN"19:07
pfifosemajnad: why dont you just run it for him, it is a server after all, you could start it from rc.local or something19:07
Doinkyer that will do it19:07
bootloop_Thanks for the help Doink  and adamu19:08
bootloop_I appreciate it19:08
semajnadpfifo: That's true, but whenever i've given another user permission to read/write/execute his files, it stops his FTP access for some reason :/19:08
apb1963semajnad: yah.  Instead of /bin/false or /bin/ksh or whatever, just change his shell to /home/user/MCMA2 whatever19:08
adamubootloop: np19:08
semajnadapb1963: So what would that do exactly?19:08
Tomfoolerykostkon, It give me 4 lines and I use the menu19:08
apb1963semajnad: but I'm not sure what that would do to ftp access19:08
lukodiabloguys... where i can find mac80211 driver for usb 8812au ( sitecom WLA 7100 )19:08
kostkonTomfoolery, hmm could you paste it on paste.ubuntu.com19:09
Tomfoolerykostkon, There's a special way to copy things from terminal right?19:09
apb1963semajnad: because now you've restricted to that one program... running ftp...  I think that requires a normal shell of some type19:09
kostkonTomfoolery, select the text with your mouse, right click and select copy19:09
pfifosemajnad: setting his shell to it would require him to be looged in iver ssh constantly19:09

semajnadpfifo: Can I set a users home directory to a folder in someone elses home directory?19:10
DoinkThe Buddha once said. "A wise man knows nothing and talks little about it."19:10
apb1963semajnad: the shell is just a program that runs.. ksh, csh, tcsh, sh, bash... .... change that program - the shell - to the program you want.19:10
pfifosemajnad: no not a good idea19:10

pfifoapb1963: how do you keep the program running upon logout though? mcma is server software19:11
PhonicUKpfifo, using screen19:11
semajnadapb1963: pfifo I'm really stuck on how to do this haha can another use be allwoed to run an executable in another users home directory?19:11
apb1963pfifo: oh, I didn't know that was a requirement.  the requirements keep changing.19:12
