wilee-nileekali_eskrima, All I wanted to do was confirm you were actually using the ubuntu release of 12.04, your nick gas kali in it, and many come on not thinking twice on trying to get help on other OS based on ubuntu that are not supported.00:12

RayhaiI'm running Ubuntu 13.10 with Cinnamon 2.0. I just tried installing a nvidia driver (v331.20), but it broke something in my computer, and now my desktop enviroment is completely crashed.01:18
uncle_benFudus, what's weird is that it worked correctly every time with my intel integrated graphics, but when i put in an nvidia card and switched over, xscreensaver used the root window "sometimes"01:19
Fudusapt-get remove nvidia*, reboot01:19
wilee-nileeRayhai, this the cinnamon ppa or the ubuntu repos?01:19
Fudusah Nvidia, that would be it ;)01:19
RayhaiI think it's the cinnamon ppa. Not entirely sure. Completely new to Linux in general.01:20

shagelit1Well thank you (sincerly) for your help. But i checked threw apt-cache search. I found that Gparted. That means its on my debian, right ?01:31
RayhaiWait, huh? @Fudus - Do I just put "r software-properties-gtk additional drivers" in my terminal?01:32
uncle_benRayhai, i'm not sure if this applies to your situation, but if you want to try the nvidia driver again...append the boot line with "nomodeset" in grub and see what happens01:32
bekksNach0z: It is "GNU parted", since it is the GNU implementation of a PARtition EDitor :) Its official name is "GNU parted".01:32

wafflejockRayhai: no02:12
wafflejockRayhai: if you installed using apt-get then you can just use remove or purge where you had install previously02:12
wafflejockRayhai: if you installed with a .sh file then you would use the uninstall flag with that script to run the uninstallation02:13
wafflejockRayhai: sudo apt-get purge nvidia-319 nvidia-settings-319 nvidia-prime02:13

Most of the time I can barely stay on for a couple of minutes. However, this exact card works perfectly fine on the Windows computers in the house, and my mom and sister have identical cards that never have problems on Windows (but also do on my02:14
Charcoalcatcomputer). That page says that there's a problem with power-saving mode turning itself on, but I made the text file to turn that off like it said to. Sometimes it won't connect again until I unplug it and plug it back in, and sometimes when I do that, it stops recognizing it and I have to reboot. Also sometimes it will only reconnect when I delete the router password in "edit connections" and re-add it. This is the output of it from iwconfig: http://02:14

PhoenixzFor some reason, (as far as I could see, no reason) my PHP went from fine to segfaults only... I was working, out of the blue, boom.. I traced the problem to either the PDO module, or libapache-mod-php5.. The latter, I'm not sure because I first noticed the segfaults on CLI. I tried reboot, reinstall, but when I tried to purge the packages, I got lots of errors on libapache-mod-php5. Status right now is that I cannot apt-get purge libapache2-mod-03:16
Phoenixzphp5 php5, it errors with "ERROR: Module php5 does not exist!" and then it dies. Anybody here know what I could do besides a complete reinstall which is not really an option for me at this (kinda critical, i have people waiting for my work which I cannot finish now) moment?03:16
PhoenixzThe only possibly relevant thing I can think of is that a few weeks ago I enabled 32 bit packages (I have 64 bit install), which I remember was required for something I needed to install back then..

reisioPhoenixz: the rest work on top of it03:28
Phoenixzd0nger: insteald of apt-get remove.. that is, if you use the command line03:28
Phoenixzreisio: Well, yeah, got that part but.. Why in all these years has nobody really worked on one good working audio stack that everybody can use?03:28
wilee-nileed0nger, App configs are in ~/.configs as well at leat some03:28
d0ngerwhere do i find that folder wilee-nilee03:29
reisioPhoenixz: because it's already good :)03:29
wilee-nileed0nger, open home and do ctrl-h to unhide .configs03:29
reisioif it weren't good enough, it would be replaced, that's how open source works03:30
Phoenixzreisio: uurrr.. :) Audio, in the last 10 years, way up to at least 12.10 (I just never used 13.04 because it crashed all over the place) always has been the problem child.. always "suddenly stopped working without explanation", and then I had to mess around on the command line in config files, and alsamixer on command line..  Plus, everybody builds on top of alsa, with other intermediary levels..03:31
d0ngerwilee-nilee,  i dont see kdenlive in the .config folder03:31
d0ngeri used purge command though03:31
reisioPhoenixz: hasn't been my experience03:31
reisiobut I don't use Ubuntu03:31
kostkonPhoenixz, nowadays it's pulseaudio on top of alsa. gstreamer and phonon are multimedia frameworks03:31
wilee-nileed0nger, Some are there some are not.03:31
reisionor have I ever had problems with flash or 64-bit03:31
reisiothese are largely imaginary problems, IMO03:31
Phoenixzkostkon: yeah, but phonon (from what I have seen here) uses gstreamer with some mix of pulse audio, and that all on top of ALSA, please correct me if I am very wrong..  It all seems very... patched together.. not just one strong "this is it and it works" if you know what I mean.03:32
reisioPhoenixz: all you actually need is alsa03:32
reisiothe rest is the fault of your particular DE and/or distro03:33
kostkonPhoenixz, gst and phonon can talk directly to pulse that's true. pulse is the sound server03:33
reisioor whatever top-level software it is that deps it in03:33
Phoenixzreisio: flash has always been horrible, but then again, thats adobe.. Cant wait till thats gone :)03:33
wilee-nileed0nger, This a ppa install?03:33
reisioPhoenixz: horrible yes03:33
reisiojust not more horrible than on Windows03:33
d0ngerkdenlive from software center03:34
Phoenixzreisio: true, true03:34
d0ngerstill didn't work. immissing some options it had when i first installed it, now it's missing options03:35
sawyer_Phoenixz, Because 12.04 works better, exept for this one thing03:35
wilee-nilee!find kdenlive03:36
ubottuFound: kdenlive, kdenlive-data, kdenlive-dbg03:36

prasannapetei have used raspbian, but i wanted to know if ubuntu can be installed04:42
sawyer_prasannapete, No.04:43
wafflejocksawyer_: probably check out alsamixer and arecord to check your Mic out04:43
sawyer_wafflejock, What? arecord?04:43
wafflejockprasannapete: believe it would not be a good thing to run full ubuntu on a raspi04:43
fishduckI compiled blender, but all I get (when I start it) is a smaller screen resolution (but no blender). Any experiences? ^^ :304:43

Charcoalwingsawyer_: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2011304 ? (scroll down to the bottom for their solution)04:44
wafflejocksawyer_: There's some good stuff on it here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture04:45
sawyer_wafflejock, Ubuntu, not arch04:45
wafflejocksawyer_: yeah gotcha same sound subsystem though04:45
wafflejocksawyer_: I used this for diagnosing stuff with my own mic using Kubuntu, ultimately turned out it was a hardware failure04:46
wafflejocksawyer_: is it a USB mic? or "regular"04:46
sawyer_wafflejock, Its internal, but it works in 13.10 and windows.04:46
CapitalSigmaarch wiki often has some great distro-neutral advice on how to get things working04:47
sawyer_wafflejock, so its not hardware failure04:47
wafflejocksawyer_: yeah gotcha, in alsamixer you'll see channels as muted with MM under their volume control, if you see internal mic with mm in there you hit M to unmute after selecting that channel with the arrows, if it's not muted in there arecord should work04:48
sawyer_I think IM getting some where, I increased the mic gain in alsa mixer and now there is a small amount of orange in pulse auudio04:48
sawyer_wafflejock, Where would I see mm? I dont see it04:49
wafflejockjust under the "volume slider" it either has 00 or mm04:49
wafflejockif you hit m it should toggle04:49
sawyer_I dont see anything changing when I hit m, or "volume slider"04:50
wafflejockweird definitely does it here, just muted my music :)04:51
wafflejockyou're in alsamixer ?04:51
sawyer_and sound settings, and pulse audio, but my mic in pulse now has a small orange bar indicating something is making it through, but its not much, and weather or not I actually make noise doesnt move it04:52
wafflejocksawyer_: http://snag.gy/UICd8.jpg <- here's what mine looks like with the MM and 00 I was talking about04:53
sawyer_and now under recording there is, "GNOME Volume Control Dialog: Peak detect From Built in audio Analog"04:53
sawyer_wafflejock, Ok nothing is muted04:54
sawyer_two things at 00 though04:54
wafflejocksawyer_: believe that testing ALSA itself using arecord from the arch instructions is the best bet because I'm pretty sure Pulse and/or Jack work on top of ALSA so if that isn't working I wouldn't expect the others to, I'm a programmer but not a Linux expert though still learning the ropes04:54
wafflejockyea 00 is okay think it just means "open" or on04:54
Charcoalwingsawyer_: Are you talking right at the microphone? When I had an internal one it couldn't detect any sound from me unless I talked *right* into it.04:55
wafflejockF6 to see other cards too if you don't see your Mic on the first one04:55
fishduckcompiled darkplaces... but when I run it, it just... does nothing but changes my screen resolution. Any ideas?04:55
sawyer_wafflejock My sound card is Default -04:55
sawyer_Charcoalwing, doesnt make a difference04:55
wafflejockfishduck: is darkplaces the new blender you were talking about up there? don't have experience compiling it, is there a problem with the one in the repo? or just looking for the latest cycles updates?04:56
Charcoalwingsawyer_: What does it sound like when you use sound recorder?04:56
sawyer_charcoalwing White noise04:57
fishduckwafflejock: I don't have the slightest idea ^^04:57
wafflejockfishduck: if you just want blender you don't need to build it from source it's available in the main repos04:57
wafflejockfishduck: sudo apt-get install blender04:57
fishduckwafflejock: I know, but I want to learn how to do it.04:58

Charcoalwingsawyer_: http://www.humans-enabled.com/2011/07/help-when-your-microphone-is-not.html This page has a video about sound settings that could make it not work?05:01
sawyer_charcoalwing, OK I will try that05:02
wafflejocksawyer_: yeah so for me it turned out I had one damaged external Mic which I didn't realize ever happened, I reinstalled my whole OS after lots of debugging then eventually found out my Mic was just broken (hooking up the headphone end and talking into them worked, face-palm), my USB mic wasn't working in Hangouts because it was hooked up through a USB hub... so two random problems not related directly to your problem, but I feel05:02
wafflejockyour pain, ultimately audacity helped me verify everything was working because you can easily select the mic inputs in there to test05:02
Charcoalwingsawyer_: http://www.youtube.com/all_comments?v=f2HYyRgue_8 I don't think the suggestion in the comments here was on any of the other links, it doesn't say anywhere if it worked for the person but you could still try.05:03

Charcoalwingsawyer_: Even if it's already been days, maybe a forum post could end up saving more days? It would also give you a place to collect the the things you've tried already and what settings and microphone you have, so it'd be easier to show others.05:15
contextive honestly never had good luck with usb sticks bootable, which is totally retarded05:15
wafflejocksawyer_: Charcoalwing makes all good points, if you can't find a post for your particular hardware that makes sense to tag onto making a new one doesn't hurt05:15
wafflejockcontext: yeah well I think USB hardware tends to have more variables involved than a CD or DVD where you just have to deal with the different layers but otherwise mostly standardized, USB drives are very variable05:16

wilee-nileeJordanJ2, Not sure to be honest, I have not needed to use a standard account, but to get admin and use sudo I would think you have to have sudo rights.06:35
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo06:35

lvlephSanju that seems like more of an eclipse question. I don't use IDEs so...07:29
blurkis__it seems (as normal) apple tv is tied to apple products, i want something simular that works with ubuntu07:29
lvlephblurkis__, I use a Minix Neo X5 mini07:30

blurkis__fahadash, wel.. its a modern tv so perhaps it does, but I belive it does not help me that much. I want a wireless setup so that I can stream movies etc to the tv.  Using these protocols on the tv does not help the wireless bits right?07:39
JordanJ2I am running ssh and would like to disable users from entering another users /home07:40
fahadashblurkis__, Yes DLNA does that. Most new TVs that have wifi enabled come with DLNA/upnp media support07:41
lvlephJordanJ2, set the permissions on the other users folders so that they don't have read permissions07:41
fahadashblurkis__, Go to software center in your ubuntu machine, look for media servers, install one and activate it. See if your TV discovers it07:41
blurkis__fahadash, looked into it, my tv has no wifi..  so Its out of question :(  though it would have been nice :)07:42
fahadashblurkis__, Then you need a device that hooks up to your home network, much like some adapter or something... Most sony-bluray players have this feature07:42
JordanJ2Can I do that via terminal?07:43
lvlephI think my suspend issue has something to do with sudo cat /proc/acpi/event07:43
lvlephcat: /proc/acpi/event: Device or resource busy07:43

Guest7127lvleph: don't you think nvidia tests their driver themselves?07:51

blurkis__fahadash, btw, thanks for the conversation. The talk about blueray made me look, and right now.. it seems the best sollution is a simple bluerayplayer with dlna etc. I saw one that even has netflix support, seems like a good solution for me.07:54

Guest7127lvleph: thx, I'll try that07:57
a4343So true not true?07:57
fahadasha4343, Your question reminds me of this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CP8CNp-vksc07:58
JordanJ2lvleph, Can I use /home/*?07:58
lvlephI believe it will work, but I would be worried about messing it up and then not being able to access any home folders JordanJ207:59
fahadashJordanJ2, You got me worried buddy07:59
duoia4343, Ubuntu itself doesn't. However Amazon shopping results have been baked into it so every search you make is essentially routed to Amazon's servers. You can however disable this from taking place.07:59
a4343I saw that one. Ubunto's position seems to be that it was ok to collect users data and send it to canonical or whatever they are08:00
blurkis__fahadash, does dlna meen that any program that supports this protocol can stream to the dlna enabled device?08:00
JordanJ2If I have 5 users, i'm supposted to do that for all of them?08:00
fahadashJordanJ2, You must know what you're doing... I am not following the whole conversation... But from those bits and pieces, its apparent that this could result into a catastrophic failure08:00
a4343So the spying occurs by default?  I assume that there is a message box that appears that informs users they are being spied on and how to turn off that feature?08:00
lvlephfahadash, he wants to make home folders unreadable by other users08:00
fahadashblurkis__, Yes. And its pretty open technology as well as a de-facto standard in the industry so most Players tend to support it08:01
lvlephby using chmod 700 /home/*08:01
Jouffluwhatever happened to swap ?08:01
fahadashlvleph, He is chmod-ding away everything inside /home08:01
wafflejockblurkis__: yeah DLNA is digital life network alliance if it says it supports it they usually talk08:02
pogiakowhats the best stable linux distro?08:02
a4343If the users dont care like Ubunto says, then there is no harm in having a big disclaimer that shows up when they send off your data08:02
wafflejockpogiako: very subjective08:02
lvlephI would be worried that only one user could access any home folder doing that08:02
fahadashblurkis__, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Plug_and_Play08:02
sam113101where can I find dri3proto?08:02
pogiakono seriously, thinking of switching to 12.0408:03
wafflejocka4343: you can go with Kubuntu or some other distro if you like, perhaps Linux Mint08:03
wafflejockoh gone08:03
lvlephpogiako, it will only have support until april08:03
blurkis__fahadash, so for example, I play musif through spotify.. is there some chanse to strean to a dlna device?08:03
duoia4343 it's not "spying" any more than Google reading your emails to present you relevant ads. Amazon doesn't care if you search "bomb equipment"-- if anything, they'll give you links to buy the equipment from Amazon. That said, don't assume that you have any privacy from a distribution that doesn't state that it intends to provide privacy. If you are concerned with spying, consider that all of08:03
duoiyour information goes through your various domain name servers and ISPs.08:03
pogiakoi want a more stable distro than what im using w/c is 13.0408:03
duoiOh balls. He left. After I typed all that out -_-08:04
wafflejock12.04 is LTS08:04
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; with the exception of 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), which will be supported for 5 years on the desktop. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Precise (Precise Pangolin 12.04)08:04
duoiBrb calling Amazon to track him down\08:04
fahadashblurkis__, Never used spotify... I mostly stream through Twonky and Windows-Media, they both work on media files from hard-drives08:04
lvlephfor some reason I thought 2 year but you are right08:04
wafflejockI moved back down to Kubuntu 12.0408:05
wafflejockwas on 13.04 okay but had some hardware problems (actual hardware problems) I mistook for software issues so I ended up downgrading08:05
blurkis__fahadash, hmm, if a program does not support dlna, is there some tweak to perhaps stream the computers audio out to dlna anyway? if you get me? instead of a musicprogram streaming, some other program catches audio output and then streams it?08:07
wafflejockblurkis__: sounds like a cool idea... don't know of anything though08:07
fahadashblurkis__, I can see where you're going with that :P08:08

JordanJ2I have set up a vm with ssh on ubuntu but cannot access outside my network08:09
wafflejockJordanJ2: what do you mean outside your network?08:10
fahadashJordanJ2, I would look into VM's configuration to see if NIC is bridged or NAT-ted08:10
wafflejockfahadash: +08:10
wafflejockJordanJ2: you need to have port forwarding on the router going to the IP for the VM08:10
JordanJ2I tried that didn't work08:11
JordanJ2Using NAT08:11
blurkis__fahadash, found a samsung bd-f5100 that supports dlna and netflix etc..  seems like a good win for me. :)08:11
wafflejockJordanJ2: can you connect via SSH when you're on the local network but on another machine outside the one running the VM08:12
uncle_beni set up ddclient to update every 25 days...will a sleeping process get reset after a reboot?08:12
wafflejockJordanJ2: that would be step one I would think, if that doesn't work the port forwarding won't help08:12
JordanJ2I will try08:14
wafflejockuncle_ben: don't believe so if I understand you correctly, when the system reboots it may restart some processes based on the session if that is being saved but even so processes don't just resume from where they were in most cases (rsync being an exception I can think of right now)08:14
JordanJ21 sec08:14
uncle_benwafflejock, it's just that my IP rarely changes, so the default of 600 seconds is ridiculous...on the other hand, it seems like from what you're saying, it won't save the state it was in after a reboot and pick up where it left off, so i think i'll just change it to once every 12 hours08:17
wafflejockuncle_ben: usually you want to put something like that in a startup script somewhere so after a reboot it's back in business http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7221757/run-automatically-program-on-startup-under-linux-ubuntu08:17

solarsI think it's an ubuntu issue08:52
crackerjackzwhats it say when you try to boot... (initramfs) or something?08:52
shagelitocrackerjackz: turns out that i messed with the grub cfg08:52
shagelitocrackerjackz: ask for help on forums & #debian08:53
wafflejocksolars: search about the governer you can adjust it with some files to some degree08:53
solarswafflejock, I know, but there is nothing about 1500mhz in the files..08:53
shagelitoin #debian they aked me to do few things, but i think my helper was just anoyed after few hours hahaha08:53
crackerjackzshagelito, what happens when you try to boot?08:53

shagelitocrackerjackz: first, i was able to boot w8 and debian08:55
crackerjackzdannymichel, i'll try08:56
shagelitoright now, the only ay to boot anything, its threw the grub2 cd. Also w8 wont load, because of a boot related problem.08:56

wafflejockJordanJ2: don't know gears grinding.... nothing but steam09:08
calimero_82hey guys, my audio doesn't work, what should i do?09:09
wafflejockJordanJ2: would double check the port forwarding and that the router doesn't need a reboot or anything09:09
pogiakowhats a good distro for a newbie?09:09
JordanJ2Never did before09:09
pogiakotrying to look for a  good distro for my mom09:10
wafflejockpogiako: Linux Mint was good for my parents09:10
wilee-nileesabgenton, Not sure why you would need to use a build, however remove and purge would work the same I would think, you just want to be careful what you remove and watch for dependencies as usual.09:10
wafflejockpogiako: they are Windows XP/95 people09:10
pogiakoyeah i guess xp would work09:10
pogiakowhere can i get it for free?09:10
pogiakowithout pirating it ofcourse ;)09:10

unicornjedihello, I need help adding a website to my web server09:12
wafflejocksorry JordanJ2 can't really think of anything aside from port forwarding that should block it at that point09:12
Vivekanandawhat is the default file comparison software in 12.04 ? I want to find the difference in code lines09:12
JordanJ2Should I turn off firewall?09:13
wafflejockVivekananda: think you need to install some sort of diff09:13
cvstxjordan yes09:13
sabgentonwilee-nilee: not quite getting you, I mean you  uncomment some deb-src entry in your /etc/apt/sources.list and then apt-get -b install a package from there,  can you now uninstall this package with apt-get remove  or apt-get purge  Properly?09:13
wafflejockJordanJ2: u can temporarily to test but if you can connect locally I don't see why the port forward wouldn't work09:13
unicornjedican anyone help me add a website to my webserver?09:13
sabgentonor does it loose its uninstaller abilitys?09:13
wafflejockVivekananda: you can use meld or kdiff3 there are others I can't recall right now09:14
sam113101unicornjedi: what's the problem?09:14
sabgentonwafflejock: the guy in the forum seems to say it doesn't purge or remove the same as binary package09:14
sabgentonwafflejock: just trying to work out if what he's saying is missleading09:15
wafflejocksabgenton: yeah not sure about installing that way, when I've built projects from source for install I've usually gotten them from a third party stie09:15
unicornjedisam113101, hi I just set up a webserver on ubuntu 13.10 using LAMP09:15
wilee-nileesabgenton, I think you are confused as to what deb-src is.09:15
calimero_82hey guys, my audio doesn't work, what should i do?09:16
Vivekanandawafflejock: I was wondering if there is already something installed by default. The problem with ubuntu is that for such things there is no way of knowing what is installed and what it does ( esp if it is cli and not gui based)09:16
sabgentonwilee-nilee: my understanding is it means apt-get update will get you a source based repo  and you can  pull in source pakages and install them from it09:16
wafflejockcalimero_82: can you give details09:16
VivekanandaI wonder how you guys do it09:16
wilee-nileesabgenton, I have never used a build command with apt-get all the dependencies are connected deb-src or not09:16
kenny__Hi ! I need an info about DU command : when i do du -axh it find 4.1GB but DF say 17GB on my / why so different ?09:16

unicornjedicalimero_82, do you have pulse? does your audio click? be more specific?09:16
wafflejockVivekananda: you can google to see what's there or use dpkg --get-selections | grep diff09:16
wafflejockVivekananda: just gotta know a couple of commands to look for stuff09:17
Vivekanandabut the program might not even be named "diff" eg meld09:17

osiris33xWhen pulling my finger up off the trackpad, the cursor zips around.09:20
unicornjediosiris33x, hi go to the DASH and type in Dconf09:20
unicornjediosiris33x, Tell me when you're there09:21
osiris33xI'm a newbie, is DASH a terminal? (sorry)09:21
kenny__nobdy know where to find my lost GB ? ^^09:21
wafflejockkenny__: you want to see your file tree by size?09:22
trijntjeosiris33x: no, the dash is the search prompt you get when you hit the super/windows key09:22
unicornjediosiris33x, press the WINDOWS key or the APPLE key09:22
osiris33xOh, okay.09:22
Jordan_Ukenny__: What filesystem are you using? Do you have any large files currently open? Were there any permissions errors from the du command?09:22
wafflejockkenny__: sudo apt-get install ncdu09:22
wafflejockkenny__: sudo ncdu /09:22
unicornjediosiris33x, when you are in the dash... type Dconf09:23
osiris33xIt brings up AskUbuntu09:23
trijntjeosiris33x: it searches both your computer and online sources09:23
nbastinDoes anyone know how to partition disks using preseed?09:24
unicornjediosiris33x, are you in the editor?09:24
osiris33xHaven't found dconf yet, still trying.09:24
kenny__mmm like DU NCDU find only about 4GB excluding home far from 17GB from DF09:25
osiris33xFont Viewer application is the only app that comes up when searching for dconf09:25
unicornjediosiris33x, press CTRL+ALT+T09:25
kenny__(home is on another part)09:25
osiris33xTerminal open09:25
unicornjediosiris33x, A terminal should pop-up. type in     dconf-editor09:25
osiris33xSays it's not installed, and to use apt-get to do that. I'll try that first.09:26
ripthejackerhow can I stream audio from one device to other device in the network?09:26
osiris33xGot it, dconf-editor is now running.09:27
wafflejockripthejacker: depends on the protocols supported by the devices09:27
ripthejackerwafflejock: both are ubuntu systems09:28
unicornjediosiris33x, Sweet. Okay tell me when dconf is up09:28
marandihi guys , i installed lamp in my computer and i wanna have access from all over network to www sites so i change listen *:80 in ports.conf ! but still i cant access to them , what should i do ?!09:28
osiris33xIt's up.09:28
wafflejockripthejacker: can just share the files can use subsonic09:28
ripthejackerwafflejock: not just files, everything from system sounds, to the videos I'm watching in youtube.09:29
kiwi_hi ... yesterday i installed 12.04 amd64. using a usb broadband modem with the live cd or the fresh harddrive install was no problem. however, after updating the system, the modem was not 'usb-modeswitched' correctly anymore. it took me >8 hours to figure it out and finally make the correct usb-modeswitch configurations. i just wanted to report this here, in case any developers are present.09:29
unicornjediosiris33x, Okay...  in left the panel... right click on "org"09:29
unicornjediosiris33x, I mean LEFT click09:29
kenny__Jordan_U, It"s an ext4 and the only big file is an mysql base09:30
ripthejackerwafflejock: the system sounds part is optional, but you get the point, like all the sound can be stream to the other device09:30
wafflejockripthejacker: yeah second time I heard that kind of request tonight but don't know09:30
unicornjediosiris33x, in left the panel... click "gnome"09:30
kenny__Jordan_U, and no permission error09:30
wafflejockripthejacker: someone wanted DLNA on audo subsystem basically09:30
wafflejocksame idea09:30
wafflejockripthejacker: http://chemicaloliver.net/linux/streaming-audio-from-ubuntu-linux-to-a-dlna-player-blu-ray-or-ps3/09:31
marandihi guys , i installed lamp in my computer and i wanna have access from all over network to www sites so i change listen *:80 in ports.conf ! but still i cant access to them , what should i do ?!09:31
wafflejockripthejacker: guess it does exist09:31
unicornjediosiris33x, after that scroll down to "settings-daemon" then click "peripherals, then click touchpad09:32
osiris33xFound it.09:32
wafflejockmarandi: you restart the server09:32
ripthejackerwafflejock: No DLNA, it's an ethernet network09:33
osiris33xLooks like I need to change the motion threshold?09:33
wafflejockripthejacker: why does that mean no DLNA?09:33
unicornjedithe threshold is for controlling how many pixels the mouse can move before the acceleration kicks in09:33
wafflejockripthejacker: http://www.dlna.org/09:34
ripthejackerwafflejock: Sorry, maybe I misunderstand dlna09:34
marandiwafflejock: i did restart the server !09:34
wafflejockripthejacker: yeah it's just for streaming media on a network09:34
ripthejackerwafflejock: I thought it was only wireless09:35
wafflejockripthejacker: it's a protocol lots of stuff supports can get apps on your smart devices and stuff, but just  a protocol for sharing the media09:35
marandiwafflejock: but nothing happened , i still dont access to apache website folder !09:35
wafflejockmarandi: so you have localhost access but going to the server by IP is failing09:35
marandiwafflejock: exactly ! i try to open webserver with apache computer ip address which is !09:36
unicornjediorisis33x, how is it?09:36
marandiwafflejock: ok , solved , i opened 80 port in localhost09:37
ripthejackerwafflejock: Actually I was thinking something like this. My machine would have an audio server and devices can connect to the server.09:37
jgcampbell300i am trying to find a good virtual machine manager for XEN ... anyone have any suggestions09:38

wafflejockripthejacker: if you install the rygel packages there though it looks like you can setup the audio to be broadcast as DLNA audio then you can setup any DLNA client device/program to play it09:40

wafflejockyeah looks like that rygel thing gets everything from pulse, but haven't tried09:41
wilee-nileekiwi_ The developers do not come here, if you have a detailed description of what happened and your fix it might be relevant, a 3rd party dongle is not really relevant though, however I recognize your frustration09:41

wafflejockripthejacker: np good luck09:42
ripthejackerwafflejock: have you used mediatomb?09:42
jgcampbell300unicornjedi, try http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-ubuntu-12.04-lts-apache2-bind-dovecot-ispconfig-3 .... howtoforge.com is a good source for people that learn that way09:43
wafflejockripthejacker: nope not aware of that09:43
wafflejockunicornjedi: basically you will setup a new sites-available file then use a2ensite to enable the new site (making a symbolic link in sites-enabled) then restart the server with sudo service apache2 restart09:43
wafflejockunicornjedi: but you should read up on it09:44
jgcampbell300unicornjedi,  you may want to go to howtoforge and search for just apache ... ispconfig can get complex if you let it09:44

wilee-nileeno prob10:11
varunendraZap-W, some chips support some advance power saving modes, which become 'bugs' in situations like this. Maybe window is sending the chip into 'suspend' mode before shutting down.10:11
Zap-Wvarikonniemi: I see10:14
uncreativeCan anyone offer some help to someone who wants to give ubuntu a try for the first time?10:14
Zap-Wvarikonniemi: so how do I revive the wireless chip during ubuntu boot without having to physically replug it to the usb port every time10:14
wilee-nileeuncreative, What problems are you having?10:15
uncreativeI just want to know, after downloading ubuntu an installing what will happen to the files currently on my computer? Also do I need a cd to download and boot from?10:16
varunendraZap-W, unfortunately, if it is indeed what I assumed (sleep mode) there is no other way except a power cycle to reset the chip. And power cycle on USB devices is only possible by physically disconnecting it.10:17
wilee-nileeuncreative, What is on the computer right now?10:17
Zap-Wvarunendra: then how come it works if I reboot into windows again? only not ubuntu10:18
uncreativeMostly just music files, and a few text documents nothing of real importance and I do believe I've already backed up everything onto an external ssd10:18
Zap-Wthen there must be a way10:19
wilee-nileeuncreative, Ubuntu would go in in a new partition in an unallocated space, so whatever is there is not effected if done correctly, yes you would use a cd or usb to install, you download a ISO to burn or load to the usb.10:20
varunendraZap-W, it is a 'feature' that becomes a 'bug' only in some particular situations. The firmware receives the 'suspend' signla from window driver, and then it waits for the 'resume' signal from the same driver. Ubuntu or any other OS can resume it only if it uses the same driver which is practically not possible.10:21
yogesh_hi there10:21
varunendraZap-W, besides, this is only one of many other possible reasons, just the most common one10:22
yogesh_any body know how to run .apk androied apps on ubuntu without using virtualbox or any vm10:22
uncreativeWilee-nilee, Ok I have a 16gb usb I will plug in and give it a try, are there applications that I should check out to enhance my experience after booting up ubuntu?10:22
wilee-nileeyogesh_ You need android to run those I believe.10:23
yogesh_can all androied apps can run in wine like utility like it runs windows apps10:23
cfhowlettyogesh_, android isn't linux, linux isn't android.  get the android sdk for linux10:23
Zap-Wvarunendra: what are the other reasons? then maybe I can disable this feature in windows when rebooting10:23
wilee-nileeyogesh_ Never heard of any android apps running in wine.10:23
wilee-nileeuncreative, It is a full operating system, some install the ubuntu-restricted-extras to get flash and codecs for media.10:24
varikonniemiZap-W, you highlight the wrong nick10:25
varunendraZap-W, when you reboot into Ubuntu (from Windows), have you checked "rfkill list" ? Does it show the adapter as "Hard blocked"?10:25
wilee-nileeuncreative, Feel free to ask questions in any area here if needed. ;)10:25
uncreativeWilee-Nilee thank you very much for taking the time to answer my question. I'll be giving this os a try.10:26
wilee-nileeuncreative, Cool, enjoy. ;)10:27
Ben64uncreative: it will run slow from usb or cd, don't think thats how it will be when installed :)10:27
Zap-W_varunendra: going to try that now10:28
uncreativeBen64, I'm not worried about the speed of the install, I'm a man with plenty of time for something that may be better than what I'm currently using. Thanks for the heads up though, I'll make a sandwich.10:29
mrafiqi always face deadjam using chrome after some time it runs fine.10:29
Ben64uncreative: i meant if you're going to be testing it out from the cd/usb, since it can run from there10:30
mrafiqit happens every time whenever i reboot my pc10:30

dewdgang-frankquick question, im on a macbook pro with the latest os x and I'd like to run Ubuntu from a SD Card or USB Stick. SD Card would be the best if it's possible. Tried it with a tutorial where I needed to download "rEFIt" and so on.11:37
dewdgang-frankbut after successfull installing ubuntu on my sd card when i hold the option key while booting it only recognizes "rEFIt" to boot. Cant boot my installed ubuntu11:38
dewdgang-frankany ideas? :(11:38
cfhowlettdewdgang-frank, refit has been deprecated.  recommendation is "refind"11:39

dewdgang-frankcfhowlett Call me dumb but to I really need the refit or refind? Cant I just use the standard that came with my mac? (Holding option key while booting gives a choice to boot from external drives by default on a mac since some mac os version.)11:42
dewdgang-frankcfhowlett Somehow I feel like theres a way to run Ubuntu from SD Card without refit/refind11:42
cfhowlettdewdgang-frank, according to the developer, refind is the tool you want.  refit is no longer developed or maintained.  see the wiki / forums.  I'm not a mac user11:43

RalliasNightwalkerkg, If you use an EFI bootloader, you can modify the bootloader to add grub and have grub boot the mini.iso file.13:53
LupusThanks gvo, im leabing now13:53
Ralliaspatagonicus, Are you running the version out of humble bundle?13:54
patagonicusRallias: I bought it on the Humble Store yesterday, I'm guessing its the same version. No swf version for download, though, only 32bit executables.13:54
Ralliaspatagonicus, Do they still offer the ubuntu-store links?13:55
Danatoguys did anybody try to download and install the image of ubuntu 13.10 from ubuntu website?13:55
patagonicusRallias: I don't see any links, just steam key (which I activated before seeing that the Linux version isn't on Steam) and direct downloads.13:56
Danatobecause I tried to install it on a vm on 2 computers and im getting a weird error13:56
Danatoit says "This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU13:57
Ralliaspatagonicus, Did it give you a .deb to install?13:58

jackargHi, i'd like some help concerning playing dvds on an old mac mini that I rebooted with linux. I managed to have players like totem recognize it, but now for every player there's an error. Totem says: "totem cannot play this type of media (dvd) because it does not have the appropriate plugins to be able to read from disc"15:01
widadmoppy, i want to read oraly not just reading  by myself15:01
moppywidad you want text-to-speech?15:01
widadmoppy, yes15:01
moppywidid i dont know: you might have to extract the text first? anyway if google "TTS" and "text to speech" that might work. Those 2 phrases are the specific name of the thing you're after15:02
jackargvlc says " DVDRead could not read block x" with x being a different value, usually 0, 2, and so on. any help? (this happens when playing a dvd)15:03
moppyjackarg, did you load the multimedia restricted codecs, etc? is this 13.10?15:04
lecoeuswidad: okular has text-to-speech but i don't think it supports other languages15:04
lecoeusthough it just might15:04
lecoeusother than that, pdftotext pdffile.pdf | whatever your favorite text to speech program15:04
jackargmoppy, i installed everything, yea. dunno about loading though? No, this is a distro called peppermint, and it's completely based on 12.04. I know I should go to peppermint irc but i'm sure people can find a solution here too...15:05
IdleOnejackarg: actually, no. you should ask the peppermint channel. We don't know what they changed or didn't.15:06

TheBossi have a question about screen resolution, would this be the right channel15:13
moppybunduru, have you tried 'sudo shutdown -H 0' .. it might be a small h15:13
moppybunduru, also perhaps go down a runlevel and see if it shuts down from there. but really i think it's an acpi issue with the power management firmware15:14

ironfoot495I have a ubuntu 12.04.315:39
SchrodingersScatironfoot495: I think you misspelled rtorrent15:39
ironfoot495SchrodingersScat: is it rtorrent I've been trying utorrent?15:40
SchrodingersScatironfoot495: ok, I see that utorrent has a server for ubuntu, what concept aren't you getting?15:41
ironfoot495SchrodingersScat: Itried using it and I can't get a single movie?15:42
ironfoot495SchrodingersScat: I foollowed an instaslltion example and now all I have is a big mess. Is there away that is simple?15:43
ironfoot495or less messy I have files everyehere now that just don't work.15:44
SchrodingersScatironfoot495: that's why I recommended something with freedom.15:44
lecoeusironfoot495: did you install it with apt-get?15:44
ironfoot495lecoeus: yes I did.15:44
lecoeusironfoot495: i have never used utorrent but it must work the same way as any other torrent client15:45
lecoeusdid you use other clients?15:46
DarthDepaHi guys :)15:46
SchrodingersScatlecoeus: I don't think he could have used apt, the site just has a tar.gz15:46

There are three options in additional drivers. Is th16:01
nightwalkerkghave to install drivers.16:01
varunendraharushimo, no partition will show up in /media until mounted.16:01
harushimothat is what I thought16:02

nikolam_I would like to use camera with skype16:02
GuybrushThreepwoDoes anyone here have experience with skype for linux? I'm having trouble accessing my past conversation history, since it seems to disappear unlike windows16:02
nikolam_I loaded skype like this before: #!/bin/bash16:03
nikolam_LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype16:03
nikolam_and it used to work16:03
nikolam_and now not16:03
harushimoI have the drive mounted but I want to keep it mounted and be able to write data to that drive16:03
nightwalkerkgirc-5225225: Yeah i thought of that. So should i install restricted ?16:03
lecoeusnikolam_: i don't know the answer to your question, but why do you preload stuff in the first place?16:04
varunendraharushimo, then you need to add an 'fstab' entry for the partition.16:04
nikolam_lecoeus, to be able to use web cam?16:04
DarthDepavarunendra: done ;) thanks16:04
lachithahelp me solve my wifi problem16:04

harushimoI need to back up my settings and then I can mess around that file16:05
lecoeusnikolam_: skype works without ld_preload for most people16:05
irc-5225225harushimo: what's wrong with fstab?16:05
wildwindharushimo: you can have it auto-mounted by adding a line to /etc/fstab. btw what fs is on that drive?16:05
varunendra!fstab | harushimo16:05
ubottuharushimo: The /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions16:05
lecoeusbut maybe that library you are trying to preload got moved due to an update16:05

lecoeusnikolam_: it's not new, maybe you had an exceptional situational with your webcam16:06

bekkssyrious: sudo apt-get install utorrent16:07
syriousbekks: tried that, returned that it couldn't find the file16:07
wildwindharushimo: then why it's not in fstab already? :) is it external drive?16:07
bekkssyrious: then utorrent isnt in the official repos.16:07
harushimono its not external16:08
harushimoits an internal drive16:08
nikolam_I needed to rotate video, btw in v4l2ucp16:08
bekksharushimo: Then it belongs to fstab16:08
lecoeusnikolam_: try running it without preloading16:08
harushimoi know16:08
nikolam_lecoeus, same.16:08
harushimobefore I do that, I have another question for all of you16:08
lecoeusnikolam_: if that doesn't work, try finding the library in the same directory16:08
harushimowhy does my second hard drive show up like this 1b477a91-8d58-4de0-8bd9-e72cc618a168 in my media directory16:09
varunendrasyrious, last time I tried utorrent on Ubuntu, I found it to be too CPU intensive. You should try a native solution16:09
bekksharushimo: Because thats the UUID of the filesystem on your drive.16:09
varunendraharushimo, because you haven't assigned it a 'LABEL'16:09
syriousbekks: fair. figured I'd give it a shot at lease16:09
harushimoI used UUID and associated with an label16:09
harushimothat goes in the fstab correct?16:10
wildwindi connect to the internet via openvpn over ppp (3G usb modem). sometimes 3g gets stalled and i have to physically disconnect and reconnect the modem. then i have to wait for ppp to go up and restart openvpn client. to automate the last part, i put a script with "pkill -USR1 openvpn" in /etc/ppp/ip-up.d. it works. here comes my question: is it the good way to do it? do i miss some drawbacks?16:10
syriousvarunendra: any suggestions?16:10
varunendrasyrious, I personally use ktorrent. Not as advanced as utorrent, but works for me16:11
mazda01switching to a larger hdd. want to switch from msdos to gpt, what's the best way? was going to use clonezilla to clone the / and /home partitions to an image, then restore them to the new gpt partitions on the larger drive. will that work?16:11
SchrodingersScatsyrious: I like rtorrent, but you can run `apt-cache search torrent.client | more` and get a list16:11
varunendrasyrious, perhaps qtorrent is another (maybe better) option16:11
varunendrasyrious, +1 to SchrodingersScat16:12
lecoeussyrious: transmission16:12
lecoeusit's basically the standard16:12
BluesKajktorr works well ,and no ads or constant reminders to go pro , syrious16:12
BluesKajerr ktorrent16:12
harushimofrom that UUID, can I find out what drive is it associated with?16:13
wildwindharushimo: yes, with disk utility16:14
varunendraharushimo, UUIDs are supposed to be unique for different partitions, so yes, you can use 'sudo blkid' command to see which partition it is16:14
krabadori need to look the session listed on lightdm16:14
krabadorat startup16:15
krabadorhow can i see them?16:15
varunendraharushimo, by 'label' in fstab, do you mean "Mount Point"?16:15
krabadorwhat conf file?16:15
krabadori tryed /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf16:15
krabadorbut nothing16:15
MonkeyDustkrabador  go to /usr/share/xsessions/16:15
cWidenIs there going to be a physical UDS for or around 14.04 ??16:15
harushimono when I label, I mean what drive is associate like /dev/sdb or /dev/sda16:16
krabadorMonkeyDust, i've the conf file?16:16
MonkeyDustkrabador  it's a folder16:16
MonkeyDustharushimo  mount shows where each uuid is mounted16:16
varunendraharushimo, those are generic addresses, not 'labels'16:16

harushimoif I'm misusing the terminology, please correct me16:17
MonkeyDustcWiden  questions about 14.04 in #ubuntu+116:17
cWidenI athanx16:17
varunendraharushimo, use Gparted to assign 'Labels' to partitions for easy recognition. But it doesn't matter if you are going to mount them via fstab. Once mounted, they appear by their mount point names16:18
nikolam_I fixed skype with Webcam with preloading /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so16:18

jetskiI have windows installed on it, and would like for it to just wait until I pick one16:55
zykotick9jetski: i believe setting the countdown to 0 will make grub just stay there.  /etc/default/grub and run update-grub after making the change.16:55
ubuntuguru12im sick of how of all these freeloaders take ubuntus work… like redhat.. fedora… opensue16:55
ubuntuguru12jetski, timeout=016:56
AikarI need help :/ I installed gnome- desktop on 13.04, and now im getting issues with initamfs-tools cant find cp: cannot stat ‘/modules/pango-basic-fc.so’: No such file or directory - + another, many seem to have ran into this but i see no solution. im worried if i reboot i wont be able to boot back in16:57
nvsdoes anyone has a virtualmachine with win 7 and visual studio inside in ubuntu?16:57
nvsis this possible?16:57
ubuntuguru12i wish redhat/fedora would quit stealing from ubuntu.16:57
jetskizykotick9, it automatically starts ubuntu for me, and if I had hibernated windows previously, that hibernation data gets messed up, so I want it to just wait16:57
bekksnvs: There is no technical reason for it being not possible.16:58

ubuntuguru12vi /boot/grub/grub.conf16:58
nvsperformance is good ? i havent tried that before16:58
bekksnvs: Depends on your hardware and the vm configuration.16:59
zykotick9jetski: you need to edit the file, then update-grub.  "sudo nano /etc/default/grub" is a terminal editor.16:59
Frito_Pendejowould be funny if slack was debian based now good one..16:59

nvsi just saw that i have to use win8 on the vm because i have vs 201317:03
nvsisnt that too much for the vm? ive got 4 gigs of ram17:03

nvsi dont know i have crashed ubuntu at least 7 times and all those times i installed lenses i used the apt-get17:11
porkman1i dont want debian packages, i want ubuntu packages17:11
bekksporkman1: Ubuntu uses the debian package management system.17:12

=== jam is now known as Guest53740

beefmanhi.  i had a motherboard die on me today, and i removed the two raid 1 (mirrored) drives, now trying to get them to work in another machine.  I had used the dead motherboard's onboard raid.18:38
lvlephI found this rathodr2 http://mylinuxexplore.blogspot.com.es/2011/11/solved-ubuntu-doesnt-shutdown-properly.html but it is really old18:38
beefmannow when i try to mount them, i get unknown filesystem type 'ddf_raid_member'18:38
beefmanany ideas?18:38
rathodr2lvleph, just a thought (no guarantees). have you tried sudo apt-get autoclean/upgrade/update (each separate command)? I've found this cleans the package managemet system and local repo18:38

jhutchins_wkbeefman: You'll need to restore them from backup, without the original controller you can't recover the raid.18:39

Rat2000does anybody know how to set up virtualbox and bridge a connection on ubuntu 12.04 ?19:20
ubottuVirtualbox is a virtualizer for x86 and amd64 architectures. It's available in the package "virtualbox" in the !repositories, and you can download the Virtualbox Extension Pack for additional, non-Free functionality at http://virtualbox.org . Additional details can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox19:21
AlanBellRat2000: yup, it works fine, did you have a specific question about it?19:22
Rat2000i just installed virtual box and selected the correct interfaces and chose bridge19:23
Rat2000do i need to make some specific configurations?19:23
Rat2000on the host machine i mean19:23

DanatoI jst installed ubuntu 13.04 on a pc's virtualbox, and upgraded it to 13.10, but when i restarted it, it jst shows me a blinking cursor for quite a while now. is that supposed to be normal?19:25
AlanBellRat2000: that should be fine, the guest will pick up it's own IP address from the network DHCP server19:25
AlanBellunless you set a static one on the guest19:25
=== greylocks is now known as Greylocks
Rat2000AlanBell, the problem is, it does not give an ip.19:26
Rat2000that is the problem19:26
AlanBellRat2000: so you have a DHCP server on the network that has enough IP addresses to hand one out to the guest?19:27
AlanBellRat2000: if in the guest you set a static IP address that is in the right subnet, can it ping stuff?19:27
Rat2000yes, i am sure that the dhcp server has enough ipadress19:27
AlanBellRat2000: is this wireless or wired?19:27
Rat2000so what you are saying is that it should work out of the box19:28
AlanBellyeah, presumably NAT works?19:28
Rat2000i did not try with nat19:29
Danatothat reboot is taking way too long, I guess i should roll it back to 13.0419:29
AlanBelloh, give that a go first then, rules out a bunch of issues19:29
Rat2000AlanBell, i just tried with nat and i recive an ip, but i cannot ping www.google.com19:31

Rat2000yes from host works 100%19:32
AlanBellok, was a silly question but we have to rule out the basics :)19:32

reisioqemu and kvm are both 'qemu-kvm'19:53

Rat2000bekks, that article doesn't really solve annything. i want to use bridge and there it says just to select that from the options witch i did and still doesnt work19:55
joosseepsusi, ok so thats dependent on the OS for the VM?19:55
pfifoEncrypt: there are 2 layers here, LUKS is the first, being placed on the partition itself, it transperently encrypts all data that is written to the partition. The second layer is you filesystem of choice, it manages storing data in a logical manner such as in files. LUKS dosent not provide any type of system for managin files so hence you need a filesystem on top of it.19:55
psusijoossee, yes, the guest OS must support it... I think Oracle made some Windows drivers to do it, but I'm not sure...19:55
gajillionHello, would OpenDNS family filter play a factor in me not receiving updates and upgrades from apt?19:55
joosseekk tty19:55

joosseereisio, where does virt keep its logs?20:08
joosseenaptic, ok, when you get the grub loader, hit e and you can edit grub for that one time. find the second or third last line that ends in "ro" and an option "quiet splash"20:09
wilee-nileenaptic, Have you used this ISO on this usb to install before with no problems, IE have you checked the md5sum?20:10

wilee-nileenaptic, You add a ppa for bootrepiar, save the bootinfo summary. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair20:30
wilee-nileenaptic, You can run just the bootinfo summary and post the url if you like.20:31

sp38hello... for thoses who know notepad++ is there anything similar for ubuntu platform? thanks20:32
bekkssp38: vi :)20:32
wafflejockvizgix: at the command line vi vim and nano are probably the most popular20:32
wilee-nileevizgix, There is gedit, some like leafpad these are outside the cli though.20:32
vizgixi usually use gedit, but can not find a andress to wget20:32

wilee-nileenaptic, What didn't work be descriptive and use nicks. Did you save the bootinfo summary?20:34
hydesterCan anybody recommend an inexpensive hard drive enclosure (usb) that supports ubuntu?  i was reading about the Vantec NexStar TX and then saw talks about it not being support by Linux/Ubuntu.  Not sure of the details or how that would be, but this is new to me.20:35
wilee-nileehydester, 1000's of external usb HD boxes most should work.20:36
wilee-nileehydester, Buy from a source that takes returns is all in case there is problems.20:37
wildwindhydester: only the cheapest ones may not work. at all :)20:37
HarmageddonHi folks! I'm still messing around with my graphics problems. I just reinstalled Ubuntu 13.10, it worked fine with nomodeset. Then, I installed nvidia-319 via apt-get and ran nvidia-xconfig. After rebooting, I get the login screen (in very small resolution), but after logging in, the screen stays black, I only see my cursor.20:37
HarmageddonGraphics card is a nVidia GeForce GT 750M.20:37
aniaHarmagedon youre not alone20:38
PDilyardspeaking of graphics cards: nvidia geforce gtx 650 or ati radeon hd 7790?20:38
aniathere is some problem with new kernel.......i was able to see login screen but coulndt login to system at all20:39
hydesterwilee-nilee: yeah, just defective vs incompatible may be issue with some returns.  wasn't sure if there was any criteria or some wiki listing compatible devices20:39
wilee-nileeHarmageddon, Do you have a dual card setup perchance run lspci and identify the graphic hardware20:39
Harmageddonwilee-nilee: Yes, I do: http://imgur.com/wgXsq4m20:40
aniaHarmagedon are u there20:40
vizgixGreetings, Im VIZ, Im having trouble with my DNS for my webhosting with installed program webmin on my ec2 amazon ubuntu server. I do not recall how to change settings on webmin, I believe I have use an editor to open the file once i 'ls'. nano did work, but i didnt get legible code. Im lost. also please bear with me as im ussing irssi via cmd line20:40
wilee-nileehydester, Not really, I bought a really cheap one from amazon and it did not work in linux, but bought another about the same price that did, you get what you pay for to some extent.20:40
hydesterwilee-nilee: did you have to pay return shipping to amazon?20:41
joosseeguys i just compiled a file but I donut know how to execute it?20:41
Harmageddonania: I'm here. I tried almost everything so far, but nothing works for me. :( Wondering, why the first start after installation works fine, but from then on, it stops working...20:41
aniaHarmagedon can u press crt+alt+f1 ....login ....there.....than write "dmesg" look for some error notice20:41
wilee-nileeHarmageddon, So from waht I understand the nvidia kicks in when needed, otherwise the other card runs in general, not an area I'm real up on really.20:42
aniapr if possible stay with orginal graphic settings and drivers in system20:42
vizgixanyone hosted with webmin or used ubuntu servers20:43
wilee-nileehydester, I did not return that one, but it depends on why you return, I forget the choice that generally guarantees no charge.20:43
padrinoYou know if I install Ubuntu to my laptop will it overwrite Windows or install alongside it?20:43
wilee-nileepadrino, Either it is your choice.20:43
PDilyardpadrino: you can do either20:44
PDilyardyeah, what he said20:44
padrinoDo I get the choice during the installation steps? Because I don't want to install, overwrite Windows and realised I missed out something to disable overwriting?20:44
wilee-nileepadrino, So is this W8?20:45
vizgixsigh, only plebs here20:45
padrinoWhy you being so condescending vizgix20:45
k1l_webmin got kicked out of the debian and ubuntu repos anyway.20:45

padrinoAlright thanks for help guys, I appreciate it :-)20:47
Harmageddonania: http://zweiiconkram.de/dmesg.txt20:47
wilee-nileepadrino, My concern here is if you have W8 and a uefi computer and how many primary partitions are there now.20:47
Harmageddonania: maybe this one? --> *ERROR* Cannot initialize the agpgart module.20:48

Jordan_Udewdgang-frank: I want to know, when you booted Ubuntu's *installer*, did you use Apple's built in boot manager, and if so did the option for booting Ubuntu's installer have a "Windows" label or an "Ubuntu" label (or something else)?20:58
dewdgang-frankJordan_U Oh, sorry. Yes it always says Windows. I thought this would be some kind of known bug or something.20:59
[Gentoo]Richhh: yes20:59
RichhhForums say encrypting the home folder negligibly impacts performance on 'modern PCs', have 3GHz Celeron 1GB RAM - fast enough?20:59
[Gentoo]Richhh: it will work20:59
dewdgang-frankJordan_U Never ever saw the Ubuntu label when i booted from Ubuntu 12 or 13 live CD20:59
Richhh[Gentoo] ok thanks20:59
[Gentoo]Richhh: no idea how much cpu usage it would cost21:00
gordonjcpRichhh: I tried it on a 3GHz Core 2 Duo with 4GB of RAM and it worked, but it absolutely crippled performance21:00
Jordan_Udewdgang-frank: That means that it's trying to boot via Apple's BIOS implementation rather than via EFI, and since you want an EFI based installtion you want to boot the installer via EFI.21:00
Jebusnot that I know of under that is says Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.21:00
[Gentoo]Richhh: it also depends on your hdd21:00
Jordan_Udewdgang-frank: What image did you use, and did you burn it to an actual CD/DVD?21:00

wilee-nileeJebus, Ah, that can happen, you can get a oem disc set from the manufacturer if you want it back, if you have no backup. Are you sure its gone, or just wont boot?21:21
Harmageddonnbursh: Should work, but you will have to plug in your external drive always in order to boot21:21
[Gentoo]nbursh: i would unplug all other drives to be safe21:21

wilee-nileeJebus, So just removing W8 and installing ubuntu is not exactly as it used to be as far as a simple install, with a uefi setup is all. You can most likely have what you want if you know how to do it and or someone helps you and the communication is clear as to what you want exactly.21:27

koyetsuthe other 2 lines have a * where gateway is. but i know i defined the gateway in my /etc/network/interfaces  i'm looking at it now and i have a gateway....errr maybe iu just figured out the problem. would having a gateway defined in both nics cause the problem?22:26
ikoniakoyetsu: that would depend on your network, do you need a gateway for both interfaces, I suspect not, I suspect both devices should NOT have a gateway, but your public internet should have a default route assigned to it22:27

pfifowolfspy: did you md5 the iso file or the actual disc?22:59
=== pankid is now known as Guest4218
induzbekks: no options22:59
wolfspypfifo, the iso. The instructions on how to md5 the disk only work on linux, and I'm on windows22:59
bekksinduz: iTunes is the only option.22:59
DanatohitsujiTMO: are you there?23:00
induzi dont have Itunes23:00
hitsujiTMODanato: yes i am23:00
bekksinduz: Then you cant access your Contacts.23:00
DanatohitsujiTMO: can you tell me in what script did you tell me to write the backlight settings again?23:00
wilee-nilee!md5sum > wilee-nilee23:00
pfifowolfspy: if im not mistaken, you can check the disk itself on boot, you just have to select it from the options it presents23:00
ubottuwilee-nilee, please see my private message23:00
induzi have to write down all but its way too may23:01
wolfspypfifo, it shows the error when I do that23:01
reisiowolfspy: http://www.etree.org/cgi-bin/counter.cgi/software/md5sum.exe23:01
induzwhat about Banshee23:01
wilee-nilee!md5sum > wilee-nilee23:01
pfifowolfspy: and you have no way to get to a linux command line?23:01
wolfspypfifo, no23:01
hitsujiTMODanato: /etc/kde4/kdm/Xsetup23:02
pfifowolfspy: can you boot any othe linux livecd's?23:02
bekksinduz: Banshee cant access your Contacts. The only option is iTunes.23:02
wolfspypfifo, unless I live boot debian23:02
DanatohitsujiTMO: ah thanks man23:02
wolfspyall the ubuntu based distros don't work23:02
reisiooh here's a nice Windowsy one: http://www.sinf.gr/en/hashcalc.html23:03
induzbekks do i have to create an account with iTune23:03
induzI have never used ITunes23:03
bekksinduz: You have to have an iTunes account, yes.23:03
wilee-nileewolfspy, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM#MD5SUM_on_Windows23:03
wolfspypfifo, will running within virtualbox work as a linux command line?23:03
induzis it free bekks23:03
reisiowolfspy: yeah, but that sounds involved23:03
bekksinduz: Yes.23:03
pfifowolfspy: ok thats a start, if you have a USB disk handy you can boot debain and use it to put together a liveusb23:03
wolfspywilee-nilee, Using those instructions, you cannot check the md5 of a disk with windwos23:03
bekksinduz: And technically, you already have one, since you have an iPhone.23:04
pfifowolfspy: I think virtualbox allows access to a physical CDROM23:04
induzit is on UBuntu too or I have to get mackbook or23:04
wolfspypfifo, I already have a ubuntu installation in virtualbox, can I just use that23:04
wilee-nileewolfspy, Really, many have.23:04
hitsujiTMOwolfspy: try looking further down the pagew to with checking the md5sum on windows section23:04
FroggestSpiritI need some help here23:04
bekksinduz: Without an iTunes account, you cant initialize your iPhone.23:04
wolfspywilee-nilee, really23:04
pfifowolfspy: fire up your vbox and set the cdrom drive to the physical cdrom, then `md5sum /dev/cdrom` to check the disk(s)23:04
induzbekks within the iTunes on iPhone, how can i use it...the iPhone is not active. It used to be23:05
wilee-nileewolfspy, use the vm though if you can, but the instructions are there and clear in using windows.23:05
FroggestSpiritdoes anyone else have an issue with suspend?23:05
wolfspywtfak1310, hey23:05
wtfak1310hi wolf23:05
hitsujiTMO!anyone | FroggestSpirit23:05
ubottuFroggestSpirit: A high percentage of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.23:05
wtfak1310hey guys, whats the differnce between Suspend, Standby, and Hibernate on Xubuntu?23:05
wolfspywilee-nilee, im trying to check the md5 of the DISK, not the ISO file23:05
bekksinduz: thats really not a subject for this channel. There is #itunes I guess.23:05
induzbekks ok23:06
Bauerguys, in Saucy, it stopped recognizing my Android phone - not mounting as USB drive anymore, while it works in Windows using the same USB cable. any ideas what could be the cause?23:06
wilee-nileewolfspy, Ah, you loose the ISO?23:06
FroggestSpiritI'm running ubuntu 13.10 on my laptop (toshiba satellite) and the 64-bit version. When I close the lid, it suspends, then after opening it, the fan turns off.23:06
reisiowtfak1310: it depends on what your hardware thinks those are23:06
reisiowtfak1310: you basically have to use trial and error23:06
FroggestSpiritafter about a minute, the fan turns on full blast, and it no longer suspends when closing the lid.23:07
wolfspywilee-nilee, I want to make sure it was written correctly23:07
wilee-nileewolfspy, Sorry to interject you have plenty of help. ;)23:07
hitsujiTMOwolfspy: ahh in that case: http://www.fourmilab.ch/md5/23:07
wtfak1310i see, well its wierd in power manager, On AC it has option to Hibernate, On Battery it doesnt23:07
hitsujiTMOFroggestSpirit: can you pastebin your dmesg and syslog from after the initial suspension23:09
pfifowtfak1310: ubuntu has basically dropped all support for hibernation, xubuntu and lubuntu still show the options though.23:09
FroggestSpirithitsujiTMO: How do I do that? I'm on windows right now, so I'll have to reboot23:09
bekkspfifo: Thats nonsense.23:09
bekkspfifo: Ubuntu hasnt dropped support for that.23:10
wolfspyumm, how do I cd to the cdrom with terminal23:10
wtfak1310Does anyone have issues with remapping keys in 13.10? I'm using the settings Editor isntead of keyboars shortcuts, and it's not too straight forward23:10
wolfspyI can go to it in natalius, so it's mounted23:11
pfifobekks: well its disabled by default (though still supported of course)23:11
hitsujiTMOFroggestSpirit: install pastebinit and you can grab them easily then. sudo apt-get install pastebinit && dmesg | pastebinit && sudo pastebinit /var/log/syslog23:11
bekkspfifo: Thats far from "dropped support".23:11
pfifobasicly dropped support23:11
hitsujiTMOpfifo: its disabled by defualt ONLY if you have non certified hardware23:11
bekkspfifo: Not even partially. "disabled by default on non certified hardware" still means "fully supported".23:12
FroggestSpirithitsujiTMO: I have to reboot into ubuntu now, but if it's just a file, i could navigate to it, and paste the contents23:12
pfifobekks: ok whatever23:12
wolfspyumm, how do I cd to the cdrom with terminal23:13
hitsujiTMOFroggestSpirit: you will need to do it after you suspend and come back. its 2 things a file /var/log/syslog and the output of the command dmesg23:13
pfifowolfspy: it must be mounted first, but you dont need todo that to run an md5sum23:13
wolfspypfifo, it says you need to be in the same directory as the md5sum.txt file on the cd rom23:13
wtfak1310anyones amixer not work right? amixer -q set Master toggle23:14
wolfspypfifo, when I type cd /cdrom, it works, but after that when I type ls it dosen';t show any files23:14
wtfak1310doesnt toggle, lol23:14
pfifowolfspy: do this instead 'md5sum /dev/cdrom'23:14
wolfspypfifo, thanks, I assume it will take a while23:15
pfifowolfspy: its not that big, but youll have to wait a min23:16
minasI am connected to a wired network and I want to use my laptop as a hotspot, so my mobile can connect to the internet. I went to netowrk settings and clicked the "use as hotspot..." option. The hotspot was created and my laptop was successfully connected to it, but my mobile can't find it. Am I doing something wrong?23:16
duhamelhello all, I am wondering how to change a folders icon and make it  stick, even from one ubuntu machine to another.23:16
wolfspypfifo, it will probably take longer, bacause of virtualbox23:17
wolfspylol, just finished23:18
wolfspypfifo, do I just compare the md5sums manually?23:18
duhamelis there a script similar to windows autorun.inf i could run that would tell ubuntu to use an icon on a thumbdrive as the icon for that thumbdrive23:18
hitsujiTMOwolfspy: just compare the first 8 digits, that should be enough23:18
kylothhey guys would this be the right channel to ask questions about an external hdd i just got. its a 218 toshiba laptop drive and i got the sata converter, its mid format right now, but what i wanted to ask about was....23:18
pfifowolfspy: wait, im looking at that document, and it brought up a good point, the md5sum produced from that wont match anyway23:18
wolfspypfifo, oh23:19
Richhhsorry if off-topic, just installed lubuntu (hoorah!) and vim, cant switch modes in vim, its entering ^[ when i press c-[ or esc23:19
kylothif anyone could help me partiion it to run a 90gig windows xp partition alongside 2 linux partitions one fedora one ubuntu23:19
kylothive ran dual boots before but never from an external hdd and never more than 2 os simultanious23:19
pfifowolfspy: you need to 'sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom' to follow the instructions to check the files on the cd23:20
wolfspypfifo, is it bad if they do match, bacause they do23:20
duhamelkyloth: install windows xp on the harddrive then install ubuntu on it.23:20
pfifowolfspy: it say 'will almost never match'23:20
wolfspypfifo, well, I guess this is a rare occasion23:21
kylothif i install windows first will it auto make the partition for all 200ggis tho and will ubuntu's gparted have what i need to run xp and fedora alongside it23:21
pfifowolfspy: so the md5sum of /dev/cdrom matches the md5 of the iso and matche the one listed in the downloads page?23:21
wolfspypfifo, yep23:21
pfifowolfspy: and you get the error posted in the imagebin?23:21
wolfspypfifo, yes23:22
duhamelkyloth: yeah, when running the live linux shrink the windows os partition with gparted.23:22
pfifowolfspy: can you boot the vm with that CD?23:22
wolfspypfifo, ill try23:22
wildwindkyloth: xp installation allows you to select/create partitions. also you can partition the drive as needed beforehand23:22
kylothif windows is installed before linux and then i install ubuntu and use gparted to shrink the windows side couldent i possibly damage my windows os?23:23
kyloththanks wildwind that was my biggest worry23:23
keberhow to see channel list?23:23
duhamelkyloth: then when installing linux choose the"something different" option and partiytion the unallocated space with for your install.23:23
wolfspypfifo, nope, because I dont have the right values for virtualizing amd64 in my bios23:23
kylothnext question, can i install these os's to this hdd without booting the system im using from the hdd23:23
pfifo!alis | keber23:23
ubottukeber: alis is a services bot that can help you find channels. Read "/msg alis help list" for help and ask any questions about it in #freenode. Example usage: /msg alis list #ubuntu* or /msg alis list *http*23:23
kyloththanks soo much for the help guys23:24
kylothlike i said ive ran dual boots before and ive imaged systems before just never more than 2 os's at a time and never on an external drive23:24
Bauerguys, in Saucy, it stopped recognizing my Android phone - not mounting as USB drive anymore, while it works in Windows using the same USB cable. any ideas what could be the cause?23:24
pfifowolfspy: ok, does it always fail to read that same sector 0x69c0023:25
duhamelkyloth: are you implying you have an os on the machine and then the two os on the hdd? if so you can select from bootmenu or bios which will boot.23:25
wilee-nileekyloth, What windows release?23:25
wolfspypfifo, yes, and it happens with mint too23:25
pfifowolfspy: are you using BIOS or UEFI?23:25
wolfspypfifo, bios23:25
Kuwaitwilee-nilee , will i try it , same nothing happen23:25
wildwindkyloth: plan all your partitions, make them with gparted, install win, install others23:25
kylothim using ym friends computer which is running windows 7 to image my external hdd i dont want to risk damaging anything on her system while doing this to my drive23:25
kyloththanks wildwind23:25
pfifowolfspy: is this a usb, pata or sata drive?23:25
wilee-nileeKuwait, You save the bootinfo summary?23:26
kylothits a 218 toshiba laptop hdd inside of a 2.5in sata to usb converter casing23:26
wilee-nileekyloth, Use the windows partitioner to resize it.23:26
duhamelkyloth: maybe use a live distro on usb to do all the partitioning so that you can easily see exactly whaT IS GOING ON WITH THE PARTITIONS.23:26
wolfspypfifo, how do you check?23:26
kyloththe sata converter just came in the mail today so im also kinda excited to use this23:26
duhamelsorry. i tapped caplock23:27
CheekioI love guides that include mystery variables23:27
duhamelhello all, I am wondering how to change a folders icon and make it  stick, even from one ubuntu machine to another.23:27
duhamelis there a script similar to windows autorun.inf i could run that would tell ubuntu to use an icon on a thumbdrive as the icon for that thumbdrive23:27

wilee-nileeCheekio, Link?23:27
wolfspyzykotick9, im not in linux23:28
kylothduhamel i was attempting to install these os's to my hdd without turning my hdd into a live boot disk unless neccessary. i have a live boot tyhumb drive but i have all three os's already downloaded to my friends system and unetbootin23:28
zykotick9wolfspy: i have no clue then...23:28
Cheekio@wilee-nilee: "This experiment was performed in the college campus and the gateway was located between the Switch and Host A."23:28
kylothand how do i highlight the names of the people im talking to so im not just sending black text23:28
pfifowolfspy: well if its usb it would be external and plugged into a usb port, otherwise on bootup youll see it listed when your bios detectes it and it will sat pata or sata... also its impossible for it to be an sata drive if your computer dosent support sata so :)23:28
wilee-nileeCheekio, That's in a reply.23:29
kylothwolfspy... its a laptop hdd that was pulled from a broken motherboard. the hdd still works fine. i went online and spent 10 bucks on a sata to usb converter cable and casing for it. now im running it as a portable usb hdd23:29
duhamelkyloth: i understand, and that shopuldn't be a problem. i just find it much easier to deal with partitions and stuff from a live linux.23:29
CheekioYeah, but the lack of documentation on what is vs obfuscates the whole article23:29
Cheekiois the external address of the host?23:30
wolfspypfifo, its sata23:30
CheekioIt's obviously not an address registered with any DNS I know of23:30
duhamelinstall to the hdd as any normal install with the windows install first then the Linux install23:30
wilee-nileeCheekio, What your trying to do in general is not gui click and it just works task, you have to have some knowledge and or the ability to find the answers.23:30
duhamelhello all, I am wondering how to change a folders icon and make it  stick, even from one ubuntu machine to another.23:31
kylothi agree duhamel thats why i was confused when i was told to put windows on it first i figured gparted would be what i needed i jsut wanted to make sure i wasnt going have have any unforseen kinks because ive never done more than 2 os's on one hdd before and this one i wanted to try three os's that i can boot from as i wish regardless of who's system i am plugged into23:31
duhamelis there a script similar to windows autorun.inf i could run that would tell ubuntu to use an icon on a thumbdrive as the icon for that thumbdrive23:31
Cheekiowilee-nilee, I'm not saying the task should be easier, I'm saying isn't it great when articles don't include necessary information23:31

kylothmy uncle boots his os on other peoples machines all the time, he doesnt even own a computer he just has a hard drive that he boots from23:32
pfifowolfspy: I think you should try booting with 'waitusb=10' in you kernel arguments23:32
duhamelkyloth: only live distros work from machine  to machine.23:32
kylothill remember that duhamel23:33
wolfspypfifo, How do you do that23:33

zykotick9SlutaTramsa: sorry, no clue.  best of luck.23:54
Kuwaitwilee-nilee yes nothing happen :(23:54
Cheekiobut my laptop is also looking to get an IP address for its ethernet port.23:54
SlutaTramsazykotick9: Alright, thanks23:54
SlutaTramsaAnyone else here with a clue?23:54
wildwindCheekio: what firmware is on pi?23:54
CheekioI mean, if you plug two computers together via ethernet, they don't just start talking, do they?23:54
Cheekiowildwind: raspbian23:54
wilee-nileeKuwait, That bootinfo summary is the key for many to actually diagnose the problem.23:54
FroggestSpiritzykotick9: any idea why suspend isnt working after?23:54
duhamelwilee-nilee: that's okay. you have helped me out many times. thanks anyway.23:55
wolfspy_pfifo: do I add another boot value in another line m23:55
zykotick9FroggestSpirit: suspend or hybernate?  either way, no i don't... best of luck.23:55
CheekioI don't know if that's the firmware. I got the most recent NOOBS and installed raspbian via its bootstrapper23:55
zykotick9FroggestSpirit: suspend has a MUCH high chance of working BTW23:55
Danatocan anybody tell what would be the equivalent of /etc/kde4/kdm on xubuntu?23:56
pfifowolfspy_: no, the line that starts with 'kernel' ends with -- (its likely split over several lines) just tack on a usbwait=10 after the --23:56
wildwindCheekio: on low ethernet level they do. but on ip level and higher not23:56
pfifowolfspy_: then ctrl+x to boot23:56
FroggestSpiritwell, suspend works the first time when i boot ubuntu and close the lid. then after logging back in after opening the lid, my fan goes silent, and then goes full blast after a minute, and closing the lid doesnt suspend anymore until i reboot23:57
zykotick9wildwind: does ubuntu even run on the pi?23:57
wildwindUbuntu not AFAIK23:57
zykotick9wildwind: so, why are you supporting it in #ubuntu then?23:57
wolfspy_pfifo: same error23:58
CheekioHe's not supporting the pi23:58
wildwindi'm not, just curious23:58
CheekioI'm trying to get my ubuntu laptop to do something, well within the bounds of what ubuntu can do.23:58
Cheekiozykotick9, read the logs if you want to know what's being discussed.23:59
