bekkshittt: technically, it looks like this: you have no disk space free actually, since you have (in sum) those much and those big files, that your free space ic oocupied.00:00
hitttbekks, but i cant locate them, my home folder only accounts for 16 GB's and the rest are small files (i dont know how hidden files get treated in this case)00:01
bekkshittt: The solution is: delete as much big files as possible. First approach: sudo apt-get autoclean; sudo apt-get autoremove; -- BE CAREFULL, since it MAY (the second command) delete stuff you dont want to be deleted.00:01
bekkshittt: run and pastebin the following: df -sh --max-depth=1 /00:02
hitttmy df doesnt seem to have a -s argument :S00:05

folstoHello, I have been trying Ubuntu and other linux based distros for a couple of months now, everytime I install one I tend to go back to restoring Windows 8 the laptop came with. The issue is that when I install Ubuntu or any other linux distro the ssd tends to get way hotter, almost the same as the cpu itself which btw also tends to get hotter than in windows 8.00:05
folstoThe SSD is a Corsair Force 3 SSD 256 GB, any ideas as to what might be the reason00:06
bekksfolsto: And whats the issue then?00:06
scipi0okay, ubottu. Hi, my upgrade to 13.10 just went bad. I used the software updater to update and I was in the "installing packages" mode when the window went dark and unresponsive. I quit it and went to open up the software updater when it informed me that I can only perform a partial update. I select to do this and it does nothing. I am updating from 13.04 using intel with a dual-boot with...00:06
scipi0...12.04. I am using the 13.04. Please help00:06
folstobekks: In short the SSD is way hotter than even a traditional hdd could be and also cpu gets a bit hotter, and I am concerned it would reduce the life of the laptop in future far quicker00:07
selektahello! I was wondering if someone could help me with installing my cisco ae23500 USB network card.00:07
bekksfolsto: "hotter than a hdd can be"?00:08
selektaI googled it but the tutorial seemed extremely difficult to me00:08
folstobekks: as i understand ssds tend to be a lot cooler than spinning disk hdd's, and in this case the ssd is lot hotter.00:09
hitttbekks, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6396918/00:09
bekksfolsto: nothing at all indicate that ssd are to be a lot cooler than hdd.00:10
BvLscipi0: so your dual booting 12.04 & 13.04 - and you are trying up update 13.04 to 13.10 but the update failed00:11
selektacan someone help me please?00:11
selektaI need to know how to enable graphical sudo so I can drop a tarball in \usr\src00:11
bekksselekta: gksudo00:12
BvLsudo apt-get install gksu00:12
BvLgksu is no-longer installed default00:12
selektai ran it00:13
selektaand it wont let me drag and drop this00:13
SchrodingersScatselekta: what did you gksudo into?00:14
selektaI have no idea what im doing00:14
BvLonce sec00:14
BvLyou want to do it graphically00:14
folstobekks: to put it another way, I just checked the temps of cpu its 69 C and when put my hand below the cpu area and the ssd area, both feel like are at the same temperature, whereas in windows 8 the temps are about 60-65 C. Is this normal on Ubuntu?00:14
selektaim trying to install a driver I guess so I can use my cisco wireless network usb car and it wants me to do a bunch of crazy stuff00:14
SchrodingersScatselekta: you can try a 'gksudo nautilus' and it'll bring up a root nautilus, oh dear be careful though00:14
folstobekks: using lm-sensors00:14
selektaIf someone could help me I have VNC00:14
selektaor teamviewer00:15
scipi0BvL: Yes.00:15
bekksfolsto: I stringly doubt you feel the difference of 4 degrees with you hand - above 43 degrees, which will actually burn your hand.00:15
BvLgksudo nautilus gksu nautilus \usr\src00:15
hitttfolsto: sometimes the CPU might be actually overheating due to poor thermoconductivity (Aka the thermodynamic gum needs replacement)00:16
rawfodogHi, Im using a 32 bit program on a 64bit xubuntu install. I'm missing libasound 32 bit. What do I type to install it ?00:16
rawfodogwill downloading the 32 bit version break anything ?00:16
folstobekks:  btw  I forgot to mention I don't feel any heat at all below ssd on windows, its only in Ubuntu thst the ssd tend to feel like at the same temp as the cpu00:16
hitttrawfodog: no, 32 bit programs work well on 64 bit platforms00:17
selektathat worked BvL !00:17
rawfodoghittt, Im missing the 32bit lib to run this00:17
Roryrawfodog: What are you doing that requires that lib?00:17
folstohittt: I think the temps are fine since its an i7 quad core , its the ssd temps that I am concerned with00:17
BvLscipi0, first just to be sure did you backup any important information00:17
rawfodogInstalling Renoise00:17
scipi0BvL; no :( . I'm kinda stupid in that way00:18
selektaim trying to run these commands but its not working00:18
Roryrawfodog: You're installing the 32 bit version? Why? They provide a 64 bit version00:18
rawfodog64bit is buggy isnt it ?00:18
rawfodoghere is an ldd of renoise on my comp ...00:19
selektaI placed the tarball in /usr/src and now im trying to run tar -xvf ndiswrapper-xxx but it doesnt work00:19
Roryrawfodog: I recommend using their 64 bit version it is no more buggy and they recommend it for 64 bit systems00:19
Roryrawfodog: "If you rarely or never use plugins, and have a 64-bit OS, go for the 64-bit version of Renoise as well. The 64-bit version can use more than 4 GB of memory and will perform a little better."00:19
rawfodogk thanks Rory00:19
hitttfolsto: You arent getting a good reading with your hand, the computer gets the reading from a much better position, the ssd should be around 40-50 C00:19
rawfodogok great thanks00:19
selektaBvL, can you help me for a moment please?00:20

Ari-Yangbekks: my bad, meant the other guy ^00:24
BvLscipi0, ill need a couple of sec00:24
maujhsnselekta Why now leave your tar file in /Downloads and extract from there/00:25

selektabvl I did that and make and make install now i didnt the drivename step and its says ndiswrapper isnt installed and that I should sudo apt-get for it00:30
selektashould I do that?00:30
Ari-Yangmujee_: sudo apt-get install cmake00:31
BvLscipi0, you said something about sudo not working00:31
Ari-Yangmujee_: I'm on 12.10 and it's packaged with 2.8.900:31
maujhsnselekta Yes!00:31
Ari-Yangmujee_: oh wait, you're on 12.04, I thought you were on 13.0400:31
mujee_ari_yang i got 2.8.7 with sudo apt-get00:31
scipi0BvL: yeah00:31
selektaokay I typed in the next step to verify installation bvl and maujhsn and it says unable to find a version of ndiswrapper00:31
mujee_and i was trying to install latest unity which required cmake 2.8.9 or later00:32
scipi0BvL: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6397015/00:32
maujhsnselekta Put it aside for now, and re-try it tomorrow!00:33
Ari-Yangmujee_: run sudo apt-get --purge cmake then download this, and extract it http://www.cmake.org/files/v2.8/cmake-
Ari-Yangmujee_: let me know when it has been extracted00:33
selektamaujhsn, why tomorrow? I want to get this done tonight? I only have two steps left this is simple stuff i just dont know enough as to why it isnt working00:33
BvLscipi0, oh i got tat once, so you your correctly not installing anything but its still locked00:33
mujee_yes i have this in my home folder extracted00:34
nightdreverI have compiz running my desktops .... however when ubuntu 12.04 boots.....first i see old wallpaper THEN afte a few secs it changes to compiz......is there away to start compiz wallpaper faster?00:34

BvLscipi0, nothing like GDebi, ubuntu software centre, synaptic are currently running?00:34
selektaBvL, two little steps left can you help me? I did the ndiswrapper -l step and it said unable to find a version of ndiswrapper00:34
mujee_ari_yang I have already this folder downloaded and extracted in my home folder00:35
scipi0BvL: nope.00:35
maujhsnselekta Sometimes it take a day or two for ubuntu to locate a package! i do not know why this is the case!00:35
Ari-Yangmujee_: okay now read the readme.txt00:35
Ari-Yangit has the instructions00:35
BvLscipi0 ok then do a sudo rm -r /var/lib/dpkg/lock00:35
selektamaujhsn, huh?! That makes no sense!00:36
Ari-Yangmujee_: you're suppose to cd into the folder with terminal run ./bootstrap after make and then if all goes well sudo make install00:36
scipi0BvL: done.00:36
selektaI need internet on this box tonight!00:36
Ari-Yangmujee_: after you run make, pastebin the output when it's done and link me before running sudo make install00:36
BvLscipi0, what happened is that linux places this file to say im installing stuff, but if crash during a installation process this file doent get removed so you cant install anyomre00:36
BvLscipi0 try doing your update now00:37
scipi0BvL: Thanks! I'll try it00:37

BvLselekta did you redo step 11. configure wlan0 in Network Center and start it up.01:12
BvLif not, you sould01:12
selektaBvL, im in there now and the wireless thing didnt pop up like it did last time. I only see wired and network proxy01:12
Xaxxaor there is a software client that allow me to use it as a local folder?01:13
selektaBvL, I unplugged it and plugged it back in and now its there01:13
selektaBvL, I have wireless now01:14
xanguahittt: you will have to if you want to reach 13.1001:14
BvLselekta, now that it "works" lets try rebooting, if its not automatically recognized just unplug and re-plug into you computer01:14
selektaBvL, okay01:14
BvLbut before that01:14
selektadamn already rebooting haha01:15
BvLyou did sudo ndiswrapper -m01:15
BvLbefore the reboot correct01:15
BvLif so thats fine01:15
selektayes to add it to the modules.inf01:15

_davideHi -- is there a package that provides libc already compiled w/ debugging symbols?01:17
perowhy is nautilus so bad? seriously, is there an explanation for that?01:17
selektaBvL, no wireless01:17
BvLselekta, ^ does "unplug and plug it back in" solution work01:17
Runemoropero, Why do you think it's bad?01:18
trippeh_davide: libc6-dbg01:18
BvLlets redo step 10. modprobe ndiswrapper01:18

perohow do i do that01:19
BvLselekta, lets redo step 10. modprobe ndiswrapper    then unplug and plug it back in01:19
selektaBvL, okay01:19
selektajust typing that made the wireless popup01:19
BvLok then we will make that command run on boot up01:20
paddyezcan you help me please to locate the variable where the JAVA path ist stored in?01:20
perowhy isn't su integrated? or the terminal01:20
perodid you seriously ask that question or did i miss where all these critical features are somehow01:20
BvLselekta "just typing that made the wireless popup" did you enter step 10 before the wireless came up01:20
selektaBvL, it still says connecting. thats what it did last time. I had to forget network and put it in again to make it connect01:21
BvLor did it come up on its own01:21
Runemoropero, There's a plugin to open a terminal in the current directory01:21
selektaBvL, typing modeprobe ndiswrapper made it come up01:21
perowhy does that need to be a plugin01:21
BvLselekta and clicked enter correct?01:21
selektaBvL, correct01:22
BvLok just to make sure01:22
perois there another plugin that lets me resize column widths?01:22

Rc43I googled and can't find it.01:25
selektaBvL, 12.0401:25
Rc43man apt-get doesn't tell about PPA01:25
Runemorowhat would be nice would be when you try to open another user's files you would have to type in their password or an admin's password01:26
selektaBvL, yeah because even a suspend knocks it out01:26
BvLok if we ned to worry about suspend too it will take a short while to get the solution01:27

N|onDell320Can anyone tell me what I need?01:27

N|onDell320I'm new to linux01:28
RunemoroN|onDell320, 13.10 then01:28
xanguaN|onDell320: stable and old software or newer and, posibly, a few bugs01:28
N|onDell320Is there a reason why some get 12.04?01:28
RunemoroN|onDell320: It's more stable01:28
N|onDell320Well my computer is about 5 years old now. Does that make a difference?01:28
BvLselekta, ok....01:29
Runemorohow much RAM does it have?01:29
N|onDell320and it's 32 bit01:29
selektaBvL, I unplugged and plugged it back in and now I see it. still connecting though01:30
Runemoro2GB of ram is good enough for 13.0401:30
BvLok after it connects try suspending, resuming and unplugging and replugging01:31
BvLbut dont do  modprobe ndiswrapper01:31

zykotick9MplayerProbs: it pains me a bit to suggest this... but you could try the mediubuntu repo they've got some codecs that are non-free - see "/msg ubottu medibuntu" for the link.  good luck.  my personal irc-vrms alarm is going off ;)03:01

MplayerProbszykotick9: it's unmaintained and offline03:04
zykotick9MplayerProbs: actually, i didn't.  sorry.  thanks!  i'll remember that.  RIP medibuntu03:04

atari911i always make an image of my disk before i do any dist upgrade03:07
MplayerProbsatari911: do you know how to make an install list ala ninite?  that way you do fresh installs of all of your software?03:08
zykotick9atari911: i'd suggest you avoid using the term dist-upgrade for anything... it's one of the most misunderstood commands in APT-world.  see "/msg ubottu dist-upgrade" for what it means... fyi, it's NOT to upgrade to a new release...03:09
BvLMplayerProbs dont know but vlc may not be able to handle wma streams03:09

Psil0Cybini am just not fixing my issue and hoping that it gets fixed05:17
exostevenBvL, it says no proprietary drivers are in use on this system05:17
Psil0Cybini am worried that it will stay like this...05:17
Psil0Cybini would prefer to use the new kernal .. is that not a good move?05:17
cfhowlettPsil0Cybin, you keep the old versions because new kernels frequently do exactly what you have experienced.05:18
Psil0Cybinoh but does that not leave my machine out dated?05:18
=== siva is now known as Guest56472
cfhowlettPsil0Cybin, no not outdated.  you can use older kernels without penalty.05:18
Psil0Cybinoh really? i kind athought a kernal being outdated is a security flaw? or a bad idea...05:18
Jordan_UPsil0Cybin: Was this a normal kernel update, or from a special PPA / compiled yourself?05:18
Psil0Cybinthats kind of how i looked at it up to now..05:19

sozuHi, anybody know why Conky disappear? Using some scripts on the desktop, but if I change to internet browser and then back again to desktop (ctrl+super+d), the conky scripts are gone again, and need to be re-launched by terminal or command to make it get back.05:25
greyhatpython<Jordan_U> so i can't use GUI?05:26
Jordan_Ugreyhatpython: You can also use just "sudo nautilus", but realize that it is *not* something you should do normally and can cause problems the next time you log in, but that's not too much of a concern since this is just a live environment, and will be gone once you reboot.05:27
greyhatpythonI tried sudo nautilus and it didn't gave copy or paste option!05:27

scipi0hi. I just added the sources "ppa:alexeftimie/ppa" and"ppa:kilian/f.lux" and now my computer takes an hour to read from package lists. I would get rid of it but the system source program crashes whenever I edit the system sources. Thanks!05:58
cfhowlettscipi0, gksudo edit /etc/apt/sources.list06:00
cfhowlettscipi0, not as pretty as the gui, but it'll get the job done.  rather than remove sources, you might want to just comment them out with #06:00

Jordan_Uloki5103: What do you mean by "ran the lpr and cups deb pacakges"? What did you actually do?06:24

fahadashI installed xubuntu through software center... Now youtube videos are choppy, the system is very slow in launching programs and responding to inputs... What should I check ?07:00
[Gentoo]Psil0Cybin: wont affect the boot speed at all07:00
Psil0Cybin[Gentoo]: oh really?07:00
[Gentoo]as you only boot into 1 kernel07:00
Psil0Cybinah makes sense07:00
Psil0Cybinnot even the grub?07:00
[Gentoo]wont affect anything exceopt disk space07:01
Psil0Cybinokay, so how many kernels is it going to keep saving? do i remove it manually, or does it keep lets say ten and then rotate and remove the really old ones07:01
pneftalianyway guys, thanks for support. It's now relayed over to other guys for them to fix.07:01
Jordan_Upneftali: That doesn't make sense since echo is a shell builtin. Are you sure you typed it correctly?07:01
Psil0Cybinand if i want to then go ahead and save the diskspace [Gentoo] what would i do ? use the synap package manager? and manually remove the old ones?07:01
Psil0Cybinor is it not recommended.07:01
hitsujiTMOPsil0Cybin: you have to remove manually07:01
Jordan_Upneftali: Does "echo /home/new-folder/*" list any files?07:01
geirhapneftali: That's odd. If you're in bash, echo should be built in07:01
Psil0CybinhitsujiTMO: okay, so how would I remove them manually from the terminal lets say?07:02
Psil0Cybinlike im using 3.2.0-56-generic-pae but i have 3.2.0-28-generic-pae07:02

hitsujiTMOPsil0Cybin: start off with listing the packages involved: sudo dpkg --get-selections | grep "linux-"07:02
geirhapneftali: Now, the actual error message may have been that it couldn't find the libs mv need, if so, you might need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH or similar07:03
[Gentoo]Psil0Cybin: i try to help with general questions im not too sure about the ubuntu way to do it07:03
geirhabut since you don't paste the exact error message, it's hard to tell07:03
Psil0Cybinokay hitsujiTMO i got the list07:04
gr33n7007hPsil0Cybin, just sudo apt-get purge <linux-image> that you don't need07:04

pneftaligeirha: Yep. I tried similar approach setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH but same result. No worries guys, they are prolly gonna build another one I guess.07:05
Psil0Cybinoh so i would do like07:05
Psil0Cybinsudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.2.0-45-generic-pae lets say?07:05
gr33n7007hPsil0Cybin, You got it!07:05

Jordan_UPsil0Cybin: *Why do you think you'lll get any corruption?07:13
hitsujiTMOPsil0Cybin: it depends on how your partitions are reffered to in grub and fstab. if they're called by device, then it can defo cause problems. by UUID will be less problematic07:13
Psil0Cybinsomeone said because i installed ubuntu after windows 707:13

Psil0Cybinremoving windows 7 and resizing ubuntu07:13
Psil0Cybinmy ubuntu partition is 48 gbs but my windows is 256 gbs07:13
Psil0Cybini want to remove windows and have ubuntu take up the whole hard drive07:13
=== trench_ is now known as trench
Psil0Cybini havent used windows in over a year and its a 256Gb Waste of space!07:14
Psil0Cybinthat is ticking me off07:14
Psil0Cybini wish i knew i would fall in love with linux before i would have set this up properly from the start07:14
[Gentoo]you could do it, make a new partition at the end of ubuntu, rsync the data over, or clonezilla the partition only, delete windows and ubuntu and rsync it back and redo grub07:14
Psil0Cybini was expecting to not like linux and never use it again07:14
Psil0Cybinis that hard to do [Gentoo] if im fairly new to linux07:15
Psil0Cybinlike 1 year old user07:15
Psil0Cybinim up for it though when i have free time07:15
[Gentoo]how much space is in use on the ubuntu partition07:15
wheatthinas this is #ubuntu, I'd recommend that :)07:15
Psil0Cybinhow can i find out forsure07:15
Psil0Cybinwhat is the proper command07:15
Jordan_UPsil0Cybin: That's nonsense. You can resize an ext4 partition, and the order that the partitions were created in doesn't change that. The only possible issue is that it requires *much* more moving of data to resize "to the left" (it's easier to resize into free space at the end of a drive than the beginning).07:15
Psil0Cybinoh really??07:16
Psil0Cybinsee i know nothing about resizing hard drives properly07:16
Psil0Cybinand partitions :(07:16
[Gentoo]Psil0Cybin: it can take a long long time07:16
Psil0Cybinso...ill leave it running all day and night07:16

Jordan_UPsil0Cybin: Please pastebin the output of "sudo parted -l".07:16
Psil0CybinJordan_U: http://pastebin.com/xjGXdbNi07:17
Psil0Cybini am just wondering if it is better to format and backup everything (themes,changes,etc)07:18
Psil0Cybinthen do the task of making a new partition moving it all over, and back and forth07:19
Jordan_UPsil0Cybin: You should already have backups of anything important.07:19
Psil0CybinThat is true.07:19
hitsujiTMOPsil0Cybin: have you 320gb free on an external drive? you can dd the entire disk to an image and be free to do whatever knowing you can always go back to your backup07:19
Psil0CybinhitsujiTMO: that is very true07:20
Psil0Cybinnever thougth of that but i do not07:20
Psil0Cybinhow long would it take to make a image that big07:20
Jordan_UPsil0Cybin: It depends on how long you think it will take you to get back to the state you want. It will almost certainly be faster to re-install than to move 64 GiB of data, but configuring things from a fresh install to what you want is another question.07:20
Psil0Cybinthat is true07:21
Psil0Cybinperhaps i will do a fresh install07:21

Psil0Cybinhow come it would work randomly08:06
Psil0Cybinlike for 3 reboots it would not work but then 2 times it would work fine08:06

FreezeSActionParsnip: the problem started with php http, I've noticed it's extremely slow10:11
Jordan_Ualfonsojon: ShapeShifter499: It's very unlikely that your Ubuntu partiton started at 32.8 KiB into the drive, so the current start of /dev/sda1 does not match the previous start of sda1, also it's only 1 GiB large. So the current /dev/sda1 is not helpful. Trying to find offsets relative to /dev/sda won't likely help either. I recommend that you use testdisk, or GParted and GPart, to try to recreate the proper partition table, then ...10:11
Jordan_U... try to fix the filesystem.10:11
alfonsojonDidn't notice that10:11

Jordan_Ualfonsojon: ShapeShifter499: I've never used the feature of GParted before, but I would expect it to work. I have used testisk with success multiple times, but the interface is (IHMO) hard to work with. If you want to go with testdisk, http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Step_By_Step is a good guide. If you go with GParted I expect it will be intuitive.10:14

ShapeShifter499alfonsojon: there is a 1gb "unknown" partition with the same label as my debian iso, and a 464gb "unallocated" space10:43
alfonsojonThat's not good.10:43
Jordan_Ualfonsojon: Yes, because it's from the debian image's partition table, not ShapeShifter499's original one. See the output of "sudo parted -l" they posted earlier. That's why you need to run GParted's partition recovery first, to find the proper start and end for the original parititon, after which fsck can do its job properly.10:44

IJNXIs there some configure flag to set username for some database directories on make install?12:18
IJNXI'm trying to make automatic script to install couchdb from sources...12:19
RoryIJNX: You could modify the Makefile12:20
IJNXRory: not really since I'm downloading sources from url, then untarrin and then running configure + make install.12:23
IJNXNow I wouldn't like to do see scripts for every new version that is available in the future.12:23
RoryIJNX: Do you mean "set username" as in chown?12:24
IJNXI wan't the log file and database directory to be accessible for couchdb user12:24
IJNXinstall script is run by root and those files become "root" owned.12:24
IJNXnow I have solved some of it file by file altering afterwards, which feel quite backward way of doing it.12:25
RoryIJNX: See, your initial question depends on the configure script provided by the program. There may be a way of doing it; does the source come with a README or INSTALL file which explains available configure flags?12:26
IJNXand since most of the databases are run nowadays by a specific user, I was hoping there is "standard" way of installing it via ./configure --setuser=couchdb12:26
IJNXRory: the script doesn't have any user specfic.12:28
IJNXexcept: --bindir12:28
RoryIJNX: Then adding the relevant "chown" commands to your script would be the best way12:28
IJNXyes, that what I was afraid of.12:28
IJNXI wonder how apt-get does that12:28
Rorywell apt-get doesn't build the sources from upstream, it just installs binaries built by Ubuntu12:29
IJNXthat's true.12:29
IJNX12.04 comes with _very_ old couchdb, so sources are only option12:30
ActionPa1snipIJNX: there may be a PPA for a newer version12:32

Rorydewdgang-frank: Take a look at this guide on customising the LiveCD with a tool called relinux http://www.howtoforge.com/creating-your-own-distributable-ubuntu-dvd-relinux12:38
dewdgang-frankahw damn thats a bit complicated :/ just want my paper wallet with a clean os thats not windows or mac to boot and shut down after creating it12:40
dewdgang-frankall these terminal commands are confusing me too much, I have no one that can guide me trough this...12:40
Rorydewdgang-frank: Well, creating your own live distro is necessarily a slightly complex task12:40
dewdgang-frankRory just need the things that are needed to run bitcoin-qt to create a paper wallet. thats all.12:41

RoryYou don't know you can trust it12:42
dewdgang-frankI see I never get to safely store my Bitcoins anywhere..12:43

RoryYou could download the .deb files you need to install; put them on a flash drive or something. Then boot from the Ubuntu LiveCD without an Internet connection, and install them manually12:43
dewdgang-frankyes thats what I asked in the beginning. But I dont know how exactly12:44
RoryWell they wouldn't be automatically installed, you'd still need to install a folder full of .deb files12:44
dewdgang-frankas far as I remember it cant be more than 2-3 files that are needed to run the Bitcoin-QT client (bitcoin.org)12:44
Rorydewdgang-frank: Run "sudo apt-get clean" to empty the cache directory12:45
DJonesdewdgang-frank: Any reason for using a DVD rather than a live USB with persistance? That would give you the option to install apps once & keep them there without having to resintall12:45
RoryDJones: I assume he wants there to be no Internet connection at any point on this system12:46
Rorydewdgang-frank: Then run "sudo apt-get install bitcoin-qt" or whatever, and the deb files will be in /var/cache/apt/archives you can copy them out12:46
dewdgang-frankDJones I dont have any option to do it with a USB drive. Thats why I use the DVD/CD Boot method. And I can use the CD or DVD in the future again to create more paper wallet for bitcoin storage, because the CD/DVD will always be clean12:46
dewdgang-frankRory yes I already tried sudo apt-get install bitcoin-qt and just doesnt work12:47
Rorydewdgang-frank: Why not? Did you copy out the .deb files and try to install them on the live system?12:47
dewdgang-frankit says some dependencies are missing12:47
Rorydewdgang-frank: That's why you have to copy out *all* the .deb files not just that one for bitcoin-qt12:48

dewdgang-frankugh this is too complicated for me ... :/12:48
Rorydewdgang-frank: I gave you the exact instructions lol12:49
dewdgang-frankyes but missing the part with the dependency files12:49
Rorydewdgang-frank: On a machine that doesn't have bitcoin-qt installed, run "sudo apt-get clean" then "sudo apt-get install bitcoin-qt" then copy the .deb files out of the /var/cache/apt/archive directory12:50
Rorydewdgang-frank: If even that is too complicated, then you could make a LiveUSB with persistance, as DJones said above12:50
dewdgang-frankI dont know how to download the missing files for installing bt-qt. how to install bt-qt thats with apt-get install, i know. but i didnt get to that point12:50
Rorydewdgang-frank: Installing bitcoin-qt will also install the dependencies12:50
dewdgang-frankRory 13:46 dewdgang-frank: DJones I dont have any option to do it with a USB drive. Thats why I use the DVD/CD Boot method. And I can use the CD or DVD in the future again to create more paper wallet for bitcoin storage, because the CD/DVD will always be clean12:51
j_ellyi am experiencing a screen-freeze-bug (?) with nvidia-driver (319.32) and gt540m on ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS. changing to vt (strg+f1 - f6) and back to xserver helps temporarily but i am looking for a longterm-solution. anybody with a clue or experiences due this bug?12:51
freakynlem1 also seems to drop link for up to 27secs at a time, visible on switch end, nothing is logged in dmesg whatsoever12:52
freakynlHi, anyone know if there are regressions, yet again, on e1000 with 13.10 server? My server has 2 NICs, em1 has about 12% packetloss pinging locally. If it's in rest first 6 pings are always gone, switch doesn't see the mac address in it's table unless I'm actually pinging (and get response). em2 has no issues with 13.10.

hitsujiTMOfreakynl: are both interfaces supplied details from dhcp when the problem is occuring?12:57
freakynldon't have enough cabling there so either em1 or em2 is connected. em2 gives no issues whatsoever, em1 always misses the first 6 pings (unless network was used in the 2-3 secs before starting the ping, like dhcp client) and then still drops around 12% after that up to 27s consecutive at a time. dmesg shows no drop in link and ifconfig shows no errors/packetloss/whatever.

cfhowlettmeteors2313, you're confusing.  If you want web based irc = no integration ...13:22
philinuxmeteors2313: you might have not installed xchat-indicator13:23
meteors2313cfhowlett: and that was cause of some bug in notification when i clicked in the message tray it(xchat) opened and crashed13:23
meteors2313philinux: i did sudo apt-get install xchat13:23
freakynlalexbeck: no offense but uh I think you still need to learn how to report errors after 10 years of trying. That's probably why it took so long in the first place :). You don't even mention what error - just that you had one. Unless there's psychics here you won't get help13:23
meteors2313so i thought that web irc would be a better option13:24
freakynlRosetta: nah multiple users with same UID will work - just might get confusing. Deleting root is bad, apps might depend on it, so might scripts etc.13:24
philinuxmeteors2313: xchat-indicator is optional it's not a dependency of xchat13:25

ReliantHello. I just upgraded Ubuntu fom 13.04 to 13.10 and now I'm looking at a blank screen that shows only my desktop background. No buttons, no menus, no prompts, nothing at all14:02
freakynlI'm going crazy too. Ubuntu had 12% packetloss on em1. Replaced all cables, rebooted several times, still 12% packetloss. Boot windows once on the machine, go back to linux and packetloss is gone. That's seriously upsetting14:02

ReliantIs it possible to remove Unity from Ubuntu 13.10?14:07
ubottuReliant,: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, from 12.10 an up install the "ubuntu-gnome-desktop" package. From 11.04 to 12.04, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic14:07
freakynlReliant: iirc they're called xubuntu, kubuntu, etc.14:07
ReliantI already have Ubuntu installed14:07

=== parduse is now known as Guest99409
ReliantI use cinnamon, but from reading up on my problem, it conflicts with Unity, causing nothing to work14:08
josh__Nanor, possibly. If it's an incompatibility between your drivers and xrandr you're going to have some problems14:08
k1l_Reliant: unity is a desktop enviroment. you can install another desktop and choose that one on logincreen14:08
bgardnerReliant: They (xubuntu, kubuntu, lubuntu) can all coexist, no need to reinstall.14:08
ReliantI don't even get the login screen14:08

Nanorjosh__, Nope. I'll give that a go now.14:08
ReliantMy desktop environment is completely blank. No buttons, no menus, no icons14:08
philinuxReliant: what do you get?14:08
ReliantI get my background picture14:09
k1l_Reliant: the login screen is seperated from the desktop.14:09
Nanorjosh__, Are the additional drivers fglrx-updates ok?14:09
ReliantWhat's the keyboard shortcut to logout?14:09
k1l_Reliant: so there might be a problem with video drivers etc and not with unity in the first place14:09
bgardnerReliant: Alt-F4 on the desktop?14:09

cfhowlettReliant, reboot.  login to command line.  sudo apt-get install xfce4.  reboot.  choose the xfce environment.  login.14:10

bgardnerReliant: Worth a shot - sorry, I know nothing about cinnamon.14:10
ActionPa1snipfreakynl: could try unloading then reloading the e1000 module, see if it helps14:10
josh__Nanor, I think so, though they don't always work. For best effect you'll have to restart as you try each combination. I remember on one laptop I had 5 different graphics drivers to toggle. Lots of combinations!14:10
Reliantctrl+alt+t does nothing. I can use alt+f2 to get a terminal14:10
ActionPa1snipfreakynl: could aslo check the connection settings and speed etc after you have booted to WIndows then back14:10
philinuxthats good then Reliant14:10
Nanorjosh__, Well that's my afternoon sorted! Thanks for your help :)14:10
k1l_well, that is more a cinnamon problem, than a unity problem, imho14:10
hitsujiTMOdf also just gives Kb not byte14:11

bibi346toafan: no, then I still can't do ctrl alt f1, but what has it to do with the keyboard? It looks like the whole interface is buggy, I can't open any program, close or reduce any window.15:23
SmilexNanor, reverting is easy. Just don't replace your current kernel, use grub-update, and there should be a new grub entry for the kernel. There might even be kernel images compiled for you, which almost makes it hassle free15:24
TJ-toafan: Then un-mount the file-systems you need to check, then run "fsck" on each one15:24

joosseeoh jeez17:47
joosseei mean the composite desktop package17:47

joosseecompiz i think17:47
joosseelol sorry17:47

joosseejhutchins_wk, bazhang ok so compiz is installed but MyUnity tells me I am running in 2D mode.17:48
joosseewhich is fine, i like 2D mode, if i can just get the dash home to open in under 4 seconds17:48
joosseejhutchins_wk, ok well MyUnity cant do anything in 2D mode... any theories on why dash home is so dang crusty? everything I've tried does nothing... maybe i need to turn compiz on?17:51

ikoniawentknweqt_: is there a php 5.4 package in ubuntu 13.10 ?17:53
zykotick9ikonia: +117:53
wafflejockTabletWhy not?17:53
wentknweqt_I didn't see one with apt-cache search17:54
ikoniawafflejockTablet: where is he going to get the lower package from, what about packages that depend on the 5.5 package ?17:54
ikoniawentknweqt_: I didn't think so,17:54
wentknweqt_er, showpkg17:54
wafflejockTabletI went from 5.3 to 5.5 its not in the main repos17:54
ikoniawentknweqt_: the idea is you use the packages shipped with the distribution, and I'm not aware of 13.10 having a 5.4 package,17:54
ikoniawafflejockTablet: yes, that's an "upgrade" and it's probably using an external PPA17:54
wentknweqt_5.4 is a downgrade. 5.5 is in 13.10 main i think17:55
ikoniawentknweqt_: yes, and I don't think there is a 5.4 package17:55
wentknweqt_erh, okay, i guess it's time to make it from source and run php 5.4 side by side with 517:57
wentknweqt_err 5.5.17:57
wafflejockTabletWhat problems in 5.5?17:57
wentknweqt_Laravel 3.x doesn't work because they decided to use yield as a method name before it became a keyword.17:57
wafflejockTabletAh bummer17:58
wentknweqt_And they're not updating it because "they used yield first."17:58
wafflejockTabletPhp came first17:58

wilmingtinzykotick9: sorry, should have been clearer: Yes, that's what I meant.18:34
wilmingtinI'm booted now, trying to mount/decrypt18:34
TJ-wilmingtin: Use "sudo cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/encrypted decrypted" to open it, then mount it using "sudo mount /dev/mapper/decrypted /path/to/mountpoint"18:34
CarlFKzykotick9: how would you (or wilmingtin ) do it if booting from whatever you mean by "boot first"  ?18:34
TJ-wilmingtin: replacing "/dev/encrypted" and "/path/to/mountpoint" with suitable values for your system18:35
CarlFKah, I see the confusion. never mind ;)18:35

patb_abyss42, that's correct18:43
joosseequestion: the open source amd drivers and fglrx are different things right?18:43
wilmingtinTJ-, CarlFK -- nice catch. Now mount is returning "mount: unknown filesystem type 'LVM2_member'"18:44
TJ-wilmingtin: Have you successfully opened the LUKS volume?18:45
wilmingtinTJ-: yes18:45
CarlFKwilmingtin: I am going out on a limb, but I bet your encrypted fs is living inside a container that lives on sda1..18:45
TJ-wilmingtin: In which case, it contains an LVM volume group18:45
CarlFKTJ-: sounds like you are way more on top of this than me, so I'll shut up now18:45
adamkjoossee: Yes, the open source driver is a different driver from the proprietary driver (fglrx).18:46
TJ-wilmingtin: so you'll need to ensure "lvm2" package is installed, and do "sudo vgscan" and then "sudo vgchange -ay"18:46
Natalie_Is  Clam AV compatible to use as my anti-virus for my Ubuntu-13.10?18:46

adamkjoossee: Both support dual monitors.18:46
adamkjoossee: Check the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file to see which driver is getting loaded.18:46
TJ-wilmingtin: Correction. You'll need "sudo pvscan" !18:47
wilmingtinTJ-: ok, installing lvm2 now..18:47
joosseeadamk, i would really like to stay with open drivers, but I notice that I do not get any dual screen options in the Settings/Display as I used to when using proprietary drivers?18:47
zykotick9!virus | Natalie_ yes clam will work.  but why?18:47
ubottuNatalie_ yes clam will work.  but why?: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus18:47
daftykinsNatalie_: if you absolutely insist on using AV, then yes packages exist for ClamAV so it should work fine.18:48
wilmingtinTJ-: still "vgchange" or "pvchange?18:48
adamkjoossee: As I said, both the open source radeon driver and the proprietary fglrx driver support multiple monitors.  I'd need to see the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file from when you are using the radeon driver to tell you why you can't configure dual monitors.18:49
TJ-wilmingtin: Yes. pvscan looks for all physical volumes... "vgchange -ay" activates all found volume groups18:49
vershanhi i have a HP Pavilion dv7-4150si Entertainment Notebook PC and installed ubuntu 13.10 and looking for hardware support.

joosseeadamk, i think i know why: I had to add "nomodeset" to grub or else I got a black screen monitors lose signal type of hang which i can only crtl-alt-del out of...?18:49
adamkjoossee: If you use 'nomodeset' then the radeon driver is disabled and you end up with the vesa driver, which does not have 2D or 3D acceleration or support for multiple monitors.18:50
wilmingtinTJ-: ok, now I've got " 2 logical volume(s) in volume group "ubuntu" now active" -- do I mount /dev/sda5 now?18:50
joosseeadamk, ok that makes a lot of sense, except that th vesa sriver perfroms better than fglrx18:51
TJ-wilmingtin: Once that's done, do "ls /dev/mapper/" and figure out which of of those LV file-systems you want to mount, and then you can finally do "sudo mount /dev/mapper/VGNAME-LVNAME /path/to/mountpoint" !18:51
wilmingtinTJ-: awesome. going through now18:51

EaglemanI need to test if my cronjob runs on the days i specified but since those days are 3 months between i have to change the date of the ubuntu machine to test it, but sometimes it works and sometimes its not working, is this becuase i am changing the date of the machine?18:54
tripelbOK so I have no clue how to get help (in 12.04 gnome-classic) so I'll ask here. It useta be that when I went to a different desktop I didnt have all my same icons all over it, it was just clear. Now in 12.04 it's littered just the same as my original desktop and with the same background. I ask, what's the point now?18:54
adamkjoossee: Much as I expected, you are using the vesa Xorg driver.18:55
wafflejocktripelb: can use different viewports for managing your open apps not just the set of icons.. mostly that's what I've used it for18:56
wafflejockin KDE you can swtich this in the settings for if you'd like different wallpapers/widgets on different desktops or shared, imagine this is true in Unity as well but may be need unity-tweaks or something to get at it18:56
joosseeadamk, yes as the open source driver just black screens...?18:56
adamkjoossee: I can't help with just a black screen with the radeon driver without seeing the output of 'dmesg' and the Xorg log file from when you use the radeon driver.18:57
wafflejockEagleman: I'm not super familiar with kron so I just got a GUI to handle the details for me, maybe a good idea for you too18:57
Eaglemanwafflejock kinda hard when you dont have a desktop D:18:57
wafflejockEagleman: ah gotcha.. yeah dunno I installed some cron package believe it was just called Kron and it added a option to my settings in KDE to configure a job... if you'd like I can do the schedule you said and drop you the cron line it adds18:58
joosseeadamk, how can I procure that for you? I think I can avoid the black screen if I can tell it not to load the windowmanager? (i thought that is what nomodeset did)18:58
fredrik_I have problems with that two instances of cairo dock starts everytime I start ubuntu... Where can I fix that?18:59
Eaglemanwafflejock i am not sure if you can do what i want with cron18:59
Eaglemanmaybe cron isnt able to manage itself, need some external scripts to get it working18:59
mfilipeI installed an ubuntu server with kde-minimium-bare and I wanna install Ubuntu One too. What is the package?18:59
joosseeadamk, basically can I jst tell it to go CLI with the open source driver that is causing the blackscreen?19:00
zykotick9joossee: using nomodeset disables the kernel mode drivers.  text disables DMs from starting.19:00
EaglemanI need to test if my cronjob runs on the days i specified but since those days are 3 months between i have to change the date of the ubuntu machine to test it, but sometimes it works and sometimes its not working, is this becuase i am changing the date of the machine?19:00
zykotick9s/mode drivers/mode video drivers/ if that wasn't clear.19:01
joosseezykotick9, ok ty. this file Xorg.0.log can be copied from CLI?19:01
zykotick9!pastebinit | joossee perhaps this will help, if you've got network.19:02
ubottujoossee perhaps this will help, if you've got network.: pastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com19:02
joosseezykotick9, i just put "text" where i ordinarily put "nomodeset"?19:02
zykotick9joossee: ya.  but i guess you need nomodeset...19:02
zykotick9joossee: or both!19:02
joosseezykotick9, right, i dont think just putting it in text will fix it.. i has similar issue before but fglrx fixed all that19:03
tpw_ruleshey all, i'm having a slight issue with ubuntu. when i plug in an external hard drive, it doesn't auto-mount. if i try to mount it via the gui (clicking on it), it complains that mounting is not authorized. any ideas what's up?19:03
zykotick9joossee: sorry i don't help with ATI/AMD stuff... best of luck.19:03
tpw_rulesthis is 12.04LTS btw19:03
joosseezykotick9, lol ok ty anyways19:03
tpw_rulesalso, it works without error if i sudo mount from the terminal19:03
joosseeadamk, can I not just tell the visa driver what my monitor and virtual desktop sizes are?19:04
zykotick9joossee: vesa is EXTREMELY limited ;)19:04
joosseeoh gawd.. but it works so good19:04
joosseequestion: do i need to purge the open source driver before "apt-get install fglrx" ?19:06
patb_joossee, I don't think so; I didn't have to19:06
zykotick9joossee: NO, that would want to take Xorg with it!19:06
adamkjoossee: No, you don't need to do that.19:06
EaglemanWill this run every 3 months on the first sunday only? http://lpaste.net/132118452782917222419:06
joosseeadamk, zykotick9 patb_ ok so just "apt-get install fglrx" and a reboot?19:07
adamkjoossee: When using the radeon driver, do not pass 'nomodeset' to the driver, but try passing 'video=640x480'19:07
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest57580
wafflejockEagleman: yeah tried doing some searching can't really come up with a reliable method of testing it... depends on the implementation I'm sure, would probably have to look at the source to be sure19:07
joosseeadamk, oh fglrx works perfectly other than the dash home button being extremely slow. i was only ytying to fix that19:07
adamkjoossee: OK, then go back to fglrx :-)19:07
joosseei guess i will have to... is there any changes i can make to the open source driver to try and get it to run?19:08
Eaglemanwafflejock, this current script seems to work but there are some problems when changing the date, for example changing 2 times to the first sunday of october wont touch the file19:08
adamkjoossee: That's what I was suggesting by passing 'video=640x480' to the kernel.  That will force KMS to use 640x480 as the console resolution.19:08
joosseeadamk, ok so I should try that resolution, with the open source driver going?19:09
joosseeinstead of nomodeset ?19:09
fredrik_I have problems with that two instances of cairo dock starts everytime I start ubuntu... Where can I fix that?19:10

smacktalkI'm trying to upgrade ubuntu from 12.4...it's failing19:35

wafflejockPDilyard: no worries, thx for letting me know too perhaps will give that a go here just to have something setup to test my development stuff without having to push to a staging server19:38
DJonessmacktalk: That looks like its trying to upgrade to 14.04 not 12.10 because thats a trusty repository, 14.04 has only just started being developed so its no surprise that the repo's are incomplete19:38
DJonessmacktalk: Don't forget you can only safely upgrade to 12.10 at the moment, or to 14.04 when its released19:39

mythriPsil0Cybin, what was your exact problem again?20:58
Psil0Cybinmythri: i upgraded my kernel i got a blackscreen i tried every boot parameter it did not work20:58
Psil0Cybini have to restart my laptop 35 times20:58
Psil0Cybinto finally get a GUI20:59
Psil0Cybinand if i reboot again i get a blackscreen after the grub and splash20:59
Psil0Cybini tried nomodeset20:59
Psil0Cybini tried vesafb.nonsense=120:59
hitsujiTMOmythri: his powervr graphics driver is crashing on most boots20:59
mythriPsil0Cybin, is this a laptop?20:59
jphitsujiTMO: Maybe it did, but now I can't do any updates bacause of the missing D. I know Plx uses the sql backend a lot20:59
Psil0Cybinyes mythri21:00
Psil0Cybina laptop its an acer aspire one d270-162821:00
hitsujiTMOjp. you can wget the debs and install manually with dpkg -i21:00
mythriPsil0Cybin, would there happen to be settings in it's bios about whether the default display in the builtin screen or an external monitor?21:00
Psil0Cybinto be honest i dont think so slash have no idea21:01
hitsujiTMOjp: whats the output of: uname -a21:01
Psil0Cybini never had to do anything like this usually21:01
Psil0Cybinkernel updates happen perfectly21:01
Psil0Cybinbut this one caused this issue so i am so confused, but when i tried reinstalling additional drivers i could not get into my stable kernel from befopre21:01
jphitsujiTMO: Whats dif between wget and this "apt-get download mysql-server-5.5; then sudo dpkg -i the deb in the current directory"21:01
Psil0Cybinit keeps booting in low graphic settings21:01
hitsujiTMOPsil0Cybin: its that driver, its written for the 3.1 kernel and a very old version of xorg. hence the crashes21:01

jphitsujiTMO, got it, how do I dpkg?21:05
Psil0Cybinso which kernel can i try becasue the kernel i was using as a fallback that always worked DOES not work anymore after i tried to reinstall my graphic drivers21:05

ShirakawasunaI'm having trouble attempting to install ubuntu on a lenovo ideapad. I've tried both 12.04 and 13.10 to no avail. Symptoms: I boot to the USB drive, it loads grub. Grub is corrupted - it is squished to just the top 1/4 of the screen and impossible to read. I select the first option, screen turns black, and no inputs do anything (including attempting to change VTs). Any ideas?21:45

reisioPsil0Cybin: lazy?21:46
Shirakawasunathis is with UEFI enabled (no legacy) and all fastboot/quickboot/whatever disabled21:46
bekksreisio: it sits around, refuses to work hard ;)21:46
wilee-nileeShirakawasuna, The iso on a usb has no grub.21:46
reisiobekks: heh21:46
Shirakawasunawilee-nilee: It has something like that21:47
Psil0Cybinreisio: well something is off because it works sometimes, but other times it does not work...i dont know how else to describe it othe rthen tis actually a gamble every time i turn on my computer which bothers me because i want my computer to be stable when it comes to booting up an O.S21:47
dylanRight now I have Windows 7 and eOS installed alongside each other.  I want to replace eOS with Ubuntu 13.10.  I'm currently booted into the live cd.  What do I need to do?21:47
wilee-nilee!nomodeset | Shirakawasuna21:47
ubottuShirakawasuna: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter21:47
hitsujiTMOwilee-nilee: it does. the first menu is grub21:47
reisioPsil0Cybin: alright, well21:47
MonkeyDustdylan  use gparted to delete the eos partition, then install ubuntu on it21:47
Shirakawasunawilee-nilee: I can't even read grub enough to add a nomodeset line21:48
reisioPsil0Cybin: see if upstart has an 'interactive' boot21:48
ShirakawasunaI could try blind, but who knows if I typed it right21:48
wilee-nileehitsujiTMO, with a iso not the grub menu as in the install.21:48
reisioPsil0Cybin: you can get an idea of the order of things, and then run experiments on the timing21:48
dylanMonkeyDust: What do I do about grub?21:48
reisioPsil0Cybin: and if need be script it so it never fails due to race conditions21:48
Psil0Cybinreisio: i will try and take a look @ that21:48
maheanuuhitsujiTMO, I can boot and load fine using Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS, everything ran fine, no error messages at all21:48
MonkeyDustdylan  meaning?21:48
Psil0Cybini will need to spend time and figure this out but it sure is a noodle scratcher21:48
dylanLike, will grub get screwed up?21:48
reisioPsil0Cybin: or just figure out what X requires and then make the script for starting it more strict in its checks21:48
hitsujiTMOmaheanuu: as in the live cd?21:48
Psil0Cybinis it thaaaaat bad to use an out dated kernel ? by one version?21:48
=== LarrySteeze|Away is now known as LarrySteeze
MonkeyDustdylan  not sure, guess not21:49
MonkeyDustdylan  what's eos anyway?21:49
dylanMonkeyDust: The menu that appears on boot, where you select theos, will that get screwed up?  Will the option to boot ubuntu be there?  Do I have to delete the eOS entry?21:49
HelloWorld321I'm trying to get synergys to launch on startup.  From the command line I use21:49
dylanMonkeyDust: Elementary OS21:49
HelloWorld321usr/bin/synergys --daemon --no-tray --debug NOTE --name Gremlin --crypto-pass xxxx --config ~/.quicksynergy/synergy.conf --address :2480021:49
HelloWorld321which works fine from the command line, but if I put into the "greeter-setup-script=" at /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf, as per https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynergyHowto#Autostart_Synergy_before_logging_in_.28LightDM.29 then when I boot up, the mouse isn't shared, and synergys is not in the process list (ps, pgrep).  So my question is:21:49
FloodBot1HelloWorld321: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.21:49
HelloWorld321Whats the proper way to get synergys to launch on login?21:49
Psil0Cybinreisio: is it bad to use an outdated kernel by one version if needed21:49
Psil0Cybintill a fix is made?21:49
maheanuuYes, one that I downloaded several months ago, It came up fine with no errors21:50
wilee-nileeShirakawasuna, If this is the iso install and the install, try and test memory gui read the link you don't do a gron edit there it is a f key.21:50
MonkeyDustdylan  not sure, if grub gets corrupted, you can come here for help or assistance21:50
dylanhow can I come here if I can't boot my pc21:50
Shirakawasunawilee-nilee: I don't understand what you mean21:50
dylanWell, I could boot live CD again..21:50
