blognewbwilee-nilee, so can a livecd read and write to an sd card?00:00
reisioblognewb: probably, depends on if that's in the kernel, which it probably is00:00
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2_, Easiest is sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list and remove the # in front of saucy partners. Genrally I would say gksudo her to open it but that is the crux.00:01
blognewbreisio, what does kernel mean here? im so dumb about hardware and interfaces im sorry00:01
zykotick9!gksudo | wilee-nilee00:01
ubottuwilee-nilee: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)00:01
mojtabareisio: it is already mounted and I can see it via GUI. But how can I have access to it via cmd?00:01
reisiomojtaba: should say where it is at the top of the file manager00:02
reisiomojtaba: or you can right-click on a directory and open a terminal00:02
allstarsnorks2_okay done00:02
wilee-nileezykotick9, The user has no gksudo and can't install gksu, I'm assuming it is in the partners repo, I would suggest a cli edit but this is a fresh user, you are welcome to show them how. ;)00:02
reisioblognewb: it's a fundamental part of an OS, in the case of GNU/Linux it holds most of the drivers, like for card readers00:02
mojtabareisio: mtp://[usb:002,077]/Phone/DCIM/Camera00:03
reisioblognewb: most live OS images will have large kernels built to support a lot of hardware automatically00:03
reisiomojtaba: ah, mtp is something else00:03
allstarsnorks2_wilee-nilee: removed the 2 # that contains ubuntu partners00:03
zykotick9wilee-nilee: i'd suggest "sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list" from terminal then...00:03
reisiomojtaba: if it doesn't show up in the output of the 'mount' command, you'd probably have to copy it from the file manager, graphically00:03
wilee-nileezykotick9, Which can be a problem if the person does not know how to save, as I said feel free to instruct. a single sudo on the sources list is hardly a problem, it is long term not using that is.00:04
blognewbreisio, i see so the kernel is not a hardware right?00:04
zykotick9wilee-nilee: fyi gksu is in "main" whatever ubuntu calls that...00:04
mojtabareisio: You mean there is no way to reach it via cmd?!00:04
zykotick9!info gksu00:04
ubottugksu (source: gksu): graphical frontend to su. In component universe, is optional. Version 2.0.2-6ubuntu2 (saucy), package size 26 kB, installed size 172 kB00:04
mojtabareisio: Actually I have copied lots of files and I would like to see if they are identical or not via cmd.00:04
reisiomojtaba: no there are probably lots of ways00:05
reisiobut I don't know mtp, so I don't know what tools there are for it00:05
wilee-nileezykotick9, I had them run cat /etc/apt/sources.list and pastbin it that repo is open and gave them the install command yet no gksu.00:05
zykotick9wilee-nilee: i have to assume the origional poster is NOT running ubuntu00:05
reisiomojtaba: other than if it shows up in 'mount' output00:05
reisioblognewb: right, software00:05
mojtabareisio: no00:05
Imaginati0nHello i installed ubuntu and i have one question. Is it normal for the update manager to auto-open when it has new updates?00:05
mehworki have a 5 year old eeepc (netbook). Will the latest version of ubuntu work on it? I want something fast00:05
zykotick9wilee-nilee: oh right, i saw you do that - and thought it was clever.  so they are running ubuntu?00:06
wilee-nileezykotick9, here is their cat. http://pastebin.com/cRqRkPtP00:06
zykotick9wilee-nilee: sorry, i don't visit pastebin.com00:06
wilee-nileezykotick9, Probably a bad install command00:06
reisiomehwork: what processor? how much ram?00:06
wilee-nileezykotick9, yeah it's ubuntu00:06
reisiomehwork: what graphics?00:07
zykotick9wilee-nilee: that's messed then...  best of luck, to you and the OP00:07
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2_, Have you run a sudo apt-get update00:07

reisiomehwork: and I'm guessing only intel graphics?00:08
allstarsnorks2_wilee-nilee: running it now and will update you00:08
Sam__omg_scout  Thanks for all the good information. I have not bought the Lenovo model T yet so I am hoping that the installer can lead me through repartitioning the drive. Thanks for the help again.00:08
mehworkreisio: probably00:08
reisiomehwork: yeah, basically what zykotick9 said00:08
mehworkreisio: i dont even care about graphics. i'd be happy for just a cli version of ubuntu if it's possible00:08
reisioyou can get more if you go with even less still, too00:08
Imaginati0nIs it normal for the update manager to auto-open in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?00:08
mehworki just want it to run fast. It has an ubuntu on it right now and it's super slow00:08
mehworkbut i havent reinstalled in years00:08
reisiomehwork: what do you want to do with it?00:08
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2_, Always run that first when you install.00:09
mehworkreisio: just command-line stuff00:09
reisiomehwork: you could just disable X then00:09
mehworkand python00:09
mehworkhow do you disable x?00:09
reisiobut if you want to install a new version anyways, use the minimalcd, I think it might let you opt out of desktop environment00:09

wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2_, None till you run sudo apt-get upgrade00:11

blognewbhey guys i know my bios version but how do i find out if it can boot from SD so i can boot the ubuntu from there please :(( help me oh00:11
reisioGuest24204: it can vary, but it's probably with ecryptfs00:11
mehworkreisio: 10.1000:11
allstarsnorks2_wilee-nilee: Huh, well then00:11
zykotick9wilee-nilee: did "apt-get update" fix the missing gksu?00:11
reisiomehwork: so it's using GNOME?00:11
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2_, Running the update is key to seeting up the communication between the computer and the repos on a install.00:11
wilee-nileezykotick9, Still waiting for the answer.00:12
allstarsnorks2_wilee-nilee: okay then I'll update you. for now it's just running.00:12
reisiomehwork: probably be sudo update-rc.d -f gdm remove00:12
nismoSVKsudo apt-get upgrade00:12
reisiomehwork: or s/gdm/lightdm00:12
Guest24204reisio: does LMDE have encryptfs?00:12
reisioGuest24204: 'ecryptfs', is available to any distro00:12
reisioas is basically any software00:12
Guest24204reisio: right, but I can't boot my new OS to install it..00:13
allstarsnorks2_well, it detected "gksu" alright. @wilee-nilee00:13
Guest24204reisio: at least I have something to google now. Thanks00:13
wilee-nileezykotick9, I did neglect to check which repo it was in and assumed the partners, having it not part of the stock install, hehe the bot would have told me. We have lift off now. ;)00:14

zykotick9wilee-nilee: nice!  good job.  <that is why i sent the "!info gksu" to you>00:14
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2_, Cool, so you understand that intial ujpdate run to sync the repos with the computer and update and upgrade are standard commands.00:15
reisioGuest24204: to accomplish what?00:15

wilee-nileein thanks00:15
zykotick9wilee-nilee: ;)00:15
Guest24204reisio: A system I can access my files in..00:16
mehworkreisio: i ran that command and it just said it was removing gdm startuplinks but when i rebooted it went rigght back into gnome00:16
allstarsnorks2_GREAT! Now I can start installing relinux. Thanks guys.00:16
reisioGuest24204: what's this got to do with ecryptfs?00:16

pngl_wilee-nilee: Sorry, I don't understand. Ubuntu comes with Unity, and gnome-shell is what I installed00:42
Ari-Yangpngl_: what graphics card do you have?00:43
grahamsavage__Hi, i've been using ubuntu unity on 12.04 about 6 months now full time and i find the windowing management infurating.   The main issue being having multiple windows in a single application open.  For example imagine having 8 windows in an IDE open and 12 terminal windows open.  In both windows and OSX if i want to open a particular tab i click on the icon in the dock or the start menu, all the windows for that application come to focus and i can00:43
grahamsavage__easily select any of the current windows.  In unity, i have to click wait for it for it to fade out the windows and then select each window indvidually.  This is a huge inefficiency every day and i've not been able to find any work around even though i know most of the ubuntu shortcuts.  Is there anyway to work around this?00:43
AnuhakHello, can someone recommend a theme with a text cursor that is highly visible?  (wider than the standard blinking  i-beam, maybe also colorful)00:43

sam113101where can I download ubuntu 14.04?00:44
Ari-Yangpngl: you're using the open source intel driver, right?00:44
ubottuUbuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) will be the 20th release of Ubuntu.  See the announcement at http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/1295 for more info.00:44
pngl_Ari-Yang: I didn't choose anything so if that's the default, yes.00:45
wilee-nileepngl_, Good, that is much clearer, I was just point out that unity is a plugin in compiz running on top if gnome 3, just trying to confrim what installing gnome meant.00:45
sprunggrahamsavage_, you need CompizConfig Manager.00:45
sprunggrahamsavage_, You'll want to disable the window effects using that tool.00:45
Ari-Yangpngl_: alright, maybe you should use latest intel driver then seeing how you're using kernel 3.12... before you try that, I suggest booting into a previous kernel (ubuntu's kernel) and see if you have any glitches00:45
sprunggrahamsavage_, you may have to download it via the Ubuntu Software Center.00:46
dvb-nouveauhas anyone managed to install klear on ubuntu 12.04?00:46
grahamsavage__sprung: it's not the effects thats the issue, it's that the windows don't all come to focus00:46

sprungdvb-nouveau, the way you are forming the question is very bad. We're assuming you already googled for an answer, and you didn't find anything, which you can form a hypothesis using induction that not many people have used this tool, in general, let alone in this channel.00:48
Andeni'll try a different take on my question: can i uninstall a package without removing the files? so that it just disappears from apt-get but leaves the files it installed on my drive00:48
wilee-nileepngl, None of that is technically supported the kernal or the ppa, just a heads up is all.00:48
=== right is now known as wrong
Ari-Yangpngl: when I say latest, I mean like version from git00:49
pnglwilee-nilee: since I need 3.12 to correctly run Ubuntu on my laptop, I guess that mans I'm in trouble00:49
Ari-Yangpngl: you can either compile from git http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-intel/ which I don't recommend00:49
Ari-Yangpngl: or add this ppa from here https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/graphics-drivers/ and run apt-get dist-upgrade00:49

Ari-Yangpngl: that ppa only supports 13.04 and 13.10 btw00:49
dvb-nouveaua guy who i lost touch with managed to install klear on ubuntu 11.10 (NO goole info on that) but i want to install klear on ubuntu 12.04?00:49
sprungdvb-nouveau, using deductive reasoning formed from the hypothesis through induction, the conclusion is you shouldn't ask whether anyone has used klear, you should instead provide error logs and links to what klear is, also what ubuntu version you are using would be helpful00:49
wilee-nileepngl, Not necessarily, you just have some limitations possibly, and I would be sure that is really the case. I doubt it is.00:50
wilee-nileedvb-nouveau, Is it in the 12.04 repos?00:50
grahamsavage__sprung: ok.. i've installed it.. and it's disabled the animation.. it still doesn't bring the windows to the front00:50

Ari-Yangpngl: and that's ubuntu's 3.11 right?00:50
pnglAri-Yang: If you mean 13.10, yes00:51
sprunggrahamsavage_, you mean you want certain windows to be Always On Top?00:51
pnglwilee-nilee: you mean you doubt I'll have limitations or you doubt I need the 3.12 kernel?00:51

Ari-Yangpngl: after you add the ppa, run apt-get dist-upgrade, log out and log back in (because you updated the driver)00:52
dvb-nouveausprung, you mean Eric S. Raymond???00:52
pnglwilee-nilee: you're right -- actually I just need two patches. But I just tried with 3.11 and got the same issues.00:52
wilee-nileepngl, Some here just wont help unless it is stock from the repos for good reasons, unless there is no other option.00:52
sprunggrahamsavage_, i don't know man i think you should probably just install windows 8 and give up00:52

wilee-nileeMrHacks, There is a mtp ppa that was suggested for 12.04 you might look.00:55

grahamsavage__yes, that works00:58
BuntuFuntuMrHacks, do they still  sell Touchpads?00:59
wilee-nileepngl, That link comes up at untrusted on FF here, can you run lspci if the wifi is internal and lsusb if external and post the actual hardware, the cpu scaling I would have no clue of.00:59

MrHacksNo. I snagged my when HP decided to sell them for $99 because WebOS sucked00:59

bvmsthought linux does not have viruses?02:11
bvmsthats why i installed it02:11
wafflejockTabletbvms: can find windows viruses all systems can have programs that do malicious thingas02:11
wafflejockTabletPeople tend to get less problems on linux since we don't run as root and many distros with low desktop user base makes it not a popular target02:12
reisiolots of reasons, mmm02:13
reisiobut definitely a reality02:14
wafflejockTabletIf u arbitrarily install stuff from the internet with no regard for the source then your likely to get something malicious eventually02:14

reisioCountryfiedLinux: make sure hdmi cable does sound, not all do02:24
reisiomake sure it's plugged in properly02:24
reisiomake sure alsamixer options are exhausted (tab, up/dn arrow)02:24
CountryfiedLinuxreisio, It has picture, so it must be plugged in properly. Maybe a hardware issue? My other laptop used to work fine with HDMI sound output months ago.02:27
wilee-nileeCountryfiedLinux, I had to use a hdmi device, my computer does not have that port, and a mini server to get it to work completely.02:27

bazhang#winehq naz02:54
duoiwilee-nilee, it seems like they are, for specific distros. It explains why the request was tailored towards Ubuntu.02:54
wilee-nileeduoi, what is said on a support site and what is done are hardly correlations, I wont hold my breath, lol.02:56
duoihere is a question: how far away is Ubuntu from Debian? that is, would packages that are developed Ubuntu work for Debian out-of-the-box?02:56
wilee-nileeoh boy more polls02:57
zykotick9duoi: no.02:57
duoizykotick9, how about the other way (Deb -> Ubuntu)?02:58
zykotick9duoi: no.02:58
zykotick9duoi: ubuntu is "based on" debian, but they are VERY different.02:58
wilee-nileethe OS's are hardly different the rhetoric is03:01
zykotick9wilee-nilee: that's NOT true...03:01
wilee-nileejust my opinion, quite subjective.03:01
xanguathere is certain commintment if you are refering about that...software center is incluided in debian repositories http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/software-center duoi03:02
abaddonzykotick9: I'm interested in hearing why not? I've seen deb pkgs work fine in ubu and vise versa.03:02

abaddonresure: grammer natzi XD03:03
reisiolike a pyrate03:03
abaddonresure: SPEKLLING* natzi XD03:03
abaddonreisio: .... T.T03:04
zykotick9abaddon: ya, that's true.  sometime they can work, but usually not so much.  ubuntu is based off debian sid/testing - packages for sid/testing will typically NOT work in debian's real release = stable.  so packages for ubuntu are expected VERY different versions from debian stable...03:04
reisioDebian stable isn't something you'd want if your friends are going to be constantly saying "hey look at this stupid Flash thing or hey let's talk on skyp"03:04
reisiowhich is how it is for most people03:05
abaddonzykotick9: Thank you for the explanation. I wondered why they sometimes worked fine03:05
reisiohence testing03:05
zykotick9abaddon: "sometime" it'll work fine, but that is NOT the rule!03:05

CADBOTHi all somewhere I saw a guide for installing windows on top of ubuntu (I know in advance that's not the preferred way), any point in the right direction?03:07
wilee-nileegnu-linux is rhetoric though03:07
CADBOTI know I have to do something to fix the bootloader after I do it03:08
researcher123reisio: where can I get these details?03:08
zykotick9wilee-nilee: do you think android is teh same as ubuntu?03:08
CADBOTAnd I think I might have to make some partitions03:08
abaddonzykotick9: same base, though the pkgs need some work03:08
wilee-nileezykotick9, Android is part linux?, not sure to be honest, I use it biut have not torn it apart03:09
reisioresearcher123: what's it for?03:09
zykotick9abaddon: android is linux but NOT gnu/linux... don't expect apps from one to run on the other.03:09
reisiomost people are familiar with gnu/linux and consider "linux" to be gnu/linux03:09
reisioit's a HUGE difference03:09
reisioGNU is by far the more relevant part of the OS03:09
zykotick9reisio: +103:09
wilee-nileeit's difference is a rhetoric though, a belief03:09
linuxlite1983im using linux for almost half a year03:09
reisiowilee-nilee: what? :p03:10
reisioit used to be rhetoric03:10
abaddonzykotick9: Which is why I said it'd need work. Though, you can run a light version of linux using an emu.... Mind, that's a diff matter03:10
reisiobut since Android is a Linux distro and not a GNU/Linux distro03:10
wilee-nileereisio, there is open and closed source linux.03:10
linuxlite1983and when i turn my computer it takes 3-4 mins is it normal03:10
reisioand since Android is quite prevalent now03:10
reisioit actually matters more than ever03:10

reisioFoxhoundz: dpkg -L php | grep -i ini, or ask apt-file03:13
abaddonreisio: Which was more or less a failure which is why Linux is used. No one wants just a kernal and just haveing the progs without the kernal is pointless. So nether is more relevent.03:13

abaddonzykotick9: I'm excited for something "new".03:31
zykotick9abaddon: based on history, mir was suppose to be in the last release - but wasn't ready.  why would ubuntu use wayland... when they are developing their own version or an xorg replacement?03:32
linuxlite1991my problem is still dsame03:32
diamondsoops wrong chan methings03:32
abaddonzykotick9: Yeah, but wayland should still work on Ubu without Canon backing it?03:32

zykotick9abaddon: they do all the time?!?!03:34
abaddonzykotick9: Like what?03:34
zykotick9abaddon: they don't package it = not supported.03:35
abaddonzykotick9: You're saying I can't make a base and port it to Ubu 'cause of Canon?03:35
sprungor like how the Amazon search spyware Canonical put in Ubuntu wont work unless Canon supports it?03:35
zykotick9abaddon: supported and possible are not the samething.03:35
abaddonzykotick9: Right, I get that, so my question is when will Wayland be up and running assuming they complete it?03:36
zykotick9abaddon: i doubt wayland will be packaged in ubuntu... but maybe.  ask mark.03:36
sprungplease make sure you install unity-lens-shopping03:37

wafflejockonizu: hello03:40
abaddonwafflejock: zykotick9 OHHHHH, I thought...nvm.... X.X I thought he was implying it wouldn't work 'cause of that. I just wanted to know when Wayland will be functional enough to use. I'm assuming they'll have a Ubu version ready.03:41
onizucan someone help me install my onboard graphic accelerator : nvidia geforce gt 540m ?03:41

onizui had trouble with nouveau and to to install using nomodeset . now after installing, i tried installing bumblebee but it didn't seem to work. my guess it several drivers were clashing with each other.03:42
zykotick9abaddon: that's up to mark.03:42
wafflejockabaddon: yeah really if they're going with a major overhaul in one direction it's not likely they will build support for another big part, it doesn't mean you can't use other distros03:42

onizusomeone help me03:47
onizuwith installing my nvidia graphics03:47
abaddononizu: Sup?03:47
onizuabaddon: see my messages above03:47
abaddononizu: XD I did , sorry03:48
abaddononizu: Anyway, what have you tried?03:48
onizutried installing bumblebee03:48
onizudidn't work. so i uninstalled all nvidia that came with it03:48
CorvetteHey can someone help me? Suddenly my laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS says 'Wired Connection ; Disconnected' in the WiFi menu and doesn't display any WiFi03:48
abaddononizu: Errr... is bumblebee the driver version?03:49
reisioCorvette: find the hardware wireless disable switch, and toggle it03:49
abaddononizu: Uh huh, and you've got no gui?03:49
Corvettereisio did that03:49
Corvettereisio several times03:49
abaddonno0p: Correct?03:49
onizuabaddon: i have03:49
onizuthis is what i have: http://ubuntuone.com/2v622ZnWZM8QJGe9WodPbT03:50
reisioCorvette: make sure it's turned on, then reboot03:50
abaddononizu: Ahh, ok...so did you try through terminal to install bumblebee or through Nvidia's site?03:50
onizuabaddon: terminal03:50
zykotick9Corvette: if you dual-boot with windows, boot that other OS and see if it's enabled there.03:51
abaddononizu: Why not try through their site and dl their deb file?03:51
onizuabaddon: i downloaded a .run file03:51
onizubut can't seem to run it really03:51
lostlambgreetings, I'm trying to install potent poinsettia (or something of that ilk) to my alienware laptop, but keep receiving an error about not having the graphics card drivers.  This wouldn't be an issue, but after telling it to run in low settings, it crashes.  Is there a work around, or something I'm missing?03:51
onizui booted into recovery mode and did : sh NVIDIA.whatever.run03:52
abaddononizu: Did you type sudo ./Blahh as your command?03:52
zykotick9onizu: IMO if you have a .run file - you're using the WRONG strategy!03:52
onizuit gave some error: can't wrote to /tmp , iirc03:52
Corvettereisio none of that works03:52
Corvettezykotick9 I don't dual boot03:52
onizuabaddon: i was already root03:52
onizuabaddon: i mean , the prompt was # instead of $03:52
zykotick9Corvette: best of luck (i don't have any other suggestions for you)03:53
onizuzykotick9: why is that?03:53
reisioCorvette: wireless router on?03:53
abaddononizu: Ok, but what about trying ./blah.run as your command instead of bash blah.run03:53
Corvettereisio yes and I can normally pick up neighbors03:53
onizuabaddon: i'll have to try that - need to kill x03:53
abaddononizu: Sounds good03:53
reisioCorvette: run an update recently?03:54
zykotick9onizu: this is debian's dpkg bot's factoid for "why nvidia installer sucks": nvidia-installer works fine for you today, granted.  Let's say tomorrow Xorg is updated -- the nvidia driver will break.  If you try to uninstall nvidia (nvidia-installer --uninstall), then you break Xorg badly.03:54
Corvettereisio yes today03:54
zykotick9 nvidia-installer overwrites files at random, ad has NO CONCEPT of package management.  We recommend against using it based on extensive experience.  USE THE DEBIAN PACKAGES.  Ask me abo.ut <nvidia>.03:54
Corvettereisio and it did say stuff about wireless security03:54
abaddonI've not heard of that b4 but better to listen to zykotick9 on this one onizu03:55
reisioCorvette: well, that's probably the culprit, then03:55
Corvettereisio how do I downgrade03:55
reisioask the channel03:56
zykotick9abaddon: onizu left :|03:56
CorvetteHow do I undo an apt update I did today03:56
abaddonzykotick9: XD I hope my method works mat least03:56
CorvetteIt seems to have killed my wifi capability03:56
abaddonzykotick9: Does ati have the same prob as nvidia?03:57
BuntuFuntuHmm, havent had to update since yesterday. Usually for me theres updates available in the morning ;o03:57
zykotick9abaddon: i avoid ATI (enemy of free software) so i wouldn't know.03:57
lostlambpardon, I don't mean to intrude again, but I'm still not certain how to get past the low graphics option when installing ubuntu on my alienware laptop.  After it doesn't find the graphics drivers,it sort of just hangs after attempting to go to low graphics until it's powere.03:58
abaddonzykotick9: I ask because I'm using ATI's drivers rather than the open ones. Really? ATI??? T.T And I like them so much....03:58
zykotick9abaddon: fyi, with amd/ati, you can't use "free" 3d drivers = fail IMO03:59
abaddonzykotick9: Hince why I'm useing the propriatary ones. XD04:00
zykotick9abaddon: nvidia has supported both gnu/linux and BSD for YEARS.  amd/ati was LATE in that game (i'm talking about non-free here).04:00
zykotick9abaddon: fyi, my first 3d support under gnu/linux WAS on an ATI card... that was a long time ago.04:01
onizuabaddon: it didn't work04:01
abaddonzykotick9: But 'ol Linus is famous for saying "Fuck you Nvidia"?? I kinda got the impression they were not the most helpful04:01
Duel-Traviscan I  set like auto join channels?04:01
zykotick9!doesntwork | onizu04:01
ubottuonizu: Doesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.04:01
zykotick9abaddon: ya, and Linux is NOT a friend to free software!04:02
onizuzykotick9: i had been in conversation with abaddon a moment ago. he knows what i'm talking about04:02
abaddononizu: What happened? And, zykotick9 , can you repeat what you said up top please04:02
zykotick9abaddon: sorry typo s/linux/linus/04:02
wafflejockTabletDuel-Travis: depends on the irc client04:02
Duel-Travisx chat04:02
onizuabaddon: i took a pic, hold on04:02
Duel-TraviswafflejockTablet, Yea x-chat04:02
wafflejockTabletI use quassel in KDE so not sure04:03
wafflejockTabletIt does automatically04:03
zykotick9onizu: abaddon ? best of luck to both of you!04:03
Duel-Travisis there a x-chat irc client?04:03
zykotick9Duel-Travis: xchat04:04
abaddonzykotick9: Don't leave me, I need you04:04
zykotick9abaddon: ;) not going anywhere04:04
abaddononizu: Alright, tell me when it's up04:04
abaddonzykotick9: Oh, thought you were going. nvm04:05
zykotick9lostlamb: what's "lspci -v | grep -i vga"?04:05
abaddononizu: May I ask you why you don't wish to use then open drivers?04:06
VLanXbadger, sprung: it was indeed bad RAM04:06
VLanX37K errors at 25% so far04:06
lostlambI don't recall it posting anything like that during the installation process.  it seems to get hung up on after checking the power status or something like that.04:06
onizuabaddon: my phone's not uploading :/04:07
onizui gotta go to work, ttyl04:07
lostlambstays like that until you hit the power button then it releases packages and shuts down.04:07
wafflejockDuel-Travis: http://quassel-irc.org/ <== that one saves your server connections and channels on close and rejoins04:08
lostlambwould having two monitors interfere with the installation process?04:08
abaddonI get saved by the bell...woohoo.04:08
wafflejocklostlamb: could04:08
wafflejocklostlamb: I've only had problems with 3 monitors hooked up get some CRTC error or something...04:08
sandman13is there a way to access .mozilla04:08
wafflejocksandman13: if it's in your home folder you can use Ctrl+H in nautilus to show hidden files04:09
zykotick9sandman13: try "cd ~/.mozilla"04:09
wafflejockor ls -al at the command line04:09
wafflejockor Ctrl+. in dolphin04:09
wafflejocker alt rather dang04:09
lostlambhmm, well it's only one outside of the laptop screen, so I wouldn't think it'd effect anything.04:09
sandman13wafflejock: ctrl+h show hidden files or...04:10
lostlambif both are up and running though, the code stops on the laptop, and the mouse freezes on the monitor.04:10
wafflejocksandman13: ls -al04:10
wafflejocksandman13: at the command line to list all files including hidden and long format including permissinos04:11
=== Guest41357 is now known as wheaties466
wafflejocksandman13: so if you do, cd ~04:11
wafflejocksandman13: ls-al04:11
azio_m41,168,737,955 bytes on ubuntu… 41,218,778,228 bytes on mac after copying. does that mean the copy wasn't 100% precise?04:11
wafflejockls -al04:11
sandman13wafflejock: done thanks04:11
wafflejocksandman13: k04:11
wafflejockazio_m: not necessarily04:12
wafflejockazio_m: check with md5sum04:12
abaddonwafflejock: quick tip. You don't need to type cd ~ to get to home. cd will do the job as well04:12
wafflejockabaddon: ah right just never think about that did stumble on it at some point though04:12
abaddonwafflejock: XD Also, l -al would be nicer if he just wants to see the files rather than all the info.04:13
abaddonwafflejock: Just my two cents04:13
zykotick9abaddon: actually "l -al" won't show anything :p04:14
zykotick9abaddon: ;)04:14
abaddon zykotick9 ummm....>.> it works for me....04:14
abaddonzykotick9: sorry, wrong person04:14
abaddonwafflejock: ummm....>.> it works for me....04:15
zykotick9abaddon: really? i get "Unknown option -al"04:15
abaddonzykotick9: ??????????? I SWEAR IT WORKS????04:15
wafflejockabaddon: actually I didn't say it didn't work... and it does work for me but does the same as ls -al04:15
zykotick9abaddon: i'd say you have an alias i don't have ;)04:16
abaddonwafflejock: un momento por favor04:16
dreamx87so I installed ubuntu on a toshiba Satelite C655, but it's not picking up the network card driver at all, it won't recognize (mount) external devices (usb/cd) while in ubuntu, any clues how to get the drivers there via alternative means?04:16
zykotick9abaddon: that' might be "expected", we are on different distros ;)04:16
abaddonzykotick9: wafflejock T.T I'm sorry, I'm wrong.04:16
wafflejockabaddon: no worries04:17
wafflejockdreamx87: sounds like disparate problems04:17
wafflejockdreamx87: you should approach each issue separately04:17
wafflejockdreamx87: generally speaking you want to use lspci or lsusb to get info about your devices (mainly the device id to lookup)04:18
abaddonwafflejock: It's l -a Derp. I'ma hush now04:18
abaddoncries in corner04:18
abaddonwafflejock: will blkid work too for giving device ids?04:20
wheatthinabaddon, only UUI's of hd's04:21
zykotick9wheatthin: sidenote, i find LABELS a lot easier to work with then UUIDs.  YMMV.04:22
abaddonwheatthin: Is not the UUID the device id? Or is it HW:0,9, etc?04:22
wafflejockabaddon: no slightly different04:22
wheatthinit'll say devid :P04:22
=== jono is now known as ubuntu-goldfish
abaddonwafflejock: Ahhh....04:23
wafflejock!uuid | abaddon04:23
ubottuabaddon: To see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)04:23
abaddonwafflejock: May I ask then what the Id would be?04:25
wafflejockabaddon: you mean the device id I referred to up there?04:25
abaddonwafflejock: Yes please04:26

hamiltontDoes anyone know a rapid-setup web server for serving a directory?04:27
hamiltontI'm auto-creating some documentation and I'd like to serve it up04:27
unicornjedihelloo, I created a subdomain with freeDNS. How can I use it so that it points to my IP address?04:27
wafflejockabaddon: the first 7 characters from lspci or after the ID word in the lsusb output are numbers that correspond to the hardware04:27
wafflejockabaddon: they both also give human readable names of the devices04:28
wafflejockunicornjedi: where are you stuck? do you know your IP?04:28
wheatthinit'll be in a ration sequence04:28
sandman13i downloaded xdm accidently is there a way to remove it04:28
unicornjediwafflejock, I know my IP.  I have my apache2 server set up as well.04:28
Ben64unicornjedi: thats really not an ubuntu issue, check with freedns or maybe ##networking or something04:28
abaddonwafflejock: Hmmm, ok.04:28
unicornjediwafflejock, if I type in my subdomain in firefox (swagdogs.mooo.com) I can see the webpage but noone else can04:30
wheatthinunicornjedi, although that's a networking issue, You'll use your external IP address while creating a subdomain with your dns provider. Then you go configure apache to use that dns04:30
adam_where can I find the SSL module for apache2? I'd like to apt-get it04:30
adam_ie, what ppa do I need to add04:31
hamiltontwafflejock: just to be sure, you want to check that your IP address a public IP address. Easy way is to open a terminal and do this: "curl ifconfig.me"04:31
wafflejockadam_: believe you need openssl not to add a ppa04:31
=== steveb_ is now known as Guest35057
Ben64unicornjedi: you really should be asking in ##networking04:31
adam_oh. I'll google for that04:31
hamiltontoops, meant to ping unicornjedi , sorry!04:31
wafflejockhamiltont: np just confused04:31
hamiltontYea my bad ;-)04:31
unicornjediokay ill head over to networking. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE04:31
hamiltontunicornjedi: So it's pretty simple over all, but the "normal" home setup can be one of the hardest to get right04:32
hamiltontYour home router needs to know how to allow incoming port 80 traffic to be "port forwarded" to your computer04:33
wheatthinnah, you just have to setup the alias to use that subdomain.. not too hard04:33
hamiltont(if you're not on a home network e.g. you're using a server, then it's even easier)04:33
Ben64take it to ##networking04:33
joossee_I keep having GUI programs crash in ubuntu 12.04. Things like firefox, transmission, and mupen64plus.. all seem to be around and ewrror "... crashed with SIGSEGV in XQuesryExtension()" can someone help me out?04:33
unicornjedihamiltont, haha, that's right. whenever I am on my website, I tie up my local area network04:34
sandman13i downloaded xdm accidently is there a way to remove it04:34
hamiltontFair enough. Ben's right though, drop this into the other channel and we can resume there04:34
wafflejocksandman13: anything you install with apt-get install you can remove with apt-get remove or apt-get purge04:34
Ben64joossee_: give more details. how you installed ubuntu, what the computer is, any ppas you might have04:35
wafflejocksandman13: purge gets rid of binaries and config, remove just the binaries but leaves config04:35
abaddonDoes anyone know how to switch to a pm on weechat?04:35
sandman13thanks wafflejock apt-get remove did the work04:35
wafflejocksandman13: np04:36
wheatthinabaddon, read the documentation or manpage.04:36
abaddonwheatthin: Did that, man page is well...not helpful04:36
wheatthinthen google.04:36
abaddonwheatthin: righteo04:37
sandman13wafflejock: is there any alternative to internet download manager in ubuntu04:38
DRiceTechhey guys, I'm having a problem with Server 13.10 - anytime I do a restart or reboot, the computer shuts down - i have to manually restart the server04:38
wafflejocksandman13: there are some alternatives like synaptic but I generally prefer just dropping to the command line personally04:38
wafflejocksandman13: I only use the package managers if I want to selectively update or something like that in most cases... or I just want to browse occasionally04:38
wafflejocksandman13: I'm on KDE now so the default is Muon... it's fine I suppose, feel indifferent about it04:39
gartralwhere is ia32-libs for 13.10? I really need that package04:39
sandman13wafflejock: more like capturing audio and video files from the web pages like youtube04:39
xsi_How to install PHP PDO?04:40
wilee-nileeabaddon, it is on this page, hehe thae bind of using a cli client, good luck. http://www.weechat.org/files/doc/stable/weechat_user.en.html04:40
xsi_apt-get pdo?04:40
wafflejocksandman13: ah that kind of download... eh well there's sites that will do it for you and sent you the file... but not really something that can be supported here04:40
gartralhey all, I need a working solution for combining jack and pulse..04:40
allstarsnorks2Does this support custom distros that look and act like Ubuntu 13.10?04:40
sandman13wafflejock: i have heard of xtreme download manager but need someone to verify it04:41
wafflejockxsi_: it's in there by default04:41
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2 This channel?04:41
allstarsnorks2Like using Relinux and such04:41
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2, Canonical ubuntu only.04:41
wilee-nileeor Canonical releases04:41
abaddonwilee-nilee: Thank you04:41
wilee-nileeabaddon, no prob.04:41
allstarsnorks2So Ubuntu distros that are custom made are not considered Canonical Ubuntu?04:41
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2, No they are derivatives.04:42
wafflejockxsi_: you just need to enable the appropraite modules between your php.ini and your apache config04:42
allstarsnorks2Was about to ask the install error but okay then04:42
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2, there is a ##linux channel and some for derivatives.04:42
wafflejockxsi_: if you're looking for mysql support search the php.ini for mysql to see where the modules need to be uncommented if they are commented out currently04:43
xsi_wafflejock I'm confused with windows's .dll files in php.ini (on my Gentoo) and 100% sure it's on a friend's Ubuntu04:43
wafflejockxsi_: the config files have some generic stuff that is preconfigured based on windows installs you need to correct sometimes04:44
wafflejockxsi_: not many places but there are a few04:44
wafflejockxsi_: mostly when it comes to paths and the like04:44
wafflejockxsi_: believe all of that stuff is commented out by default though so it all still works fine04:45
Nuclear_muffinI was installing a game in wine through steam, and when it was installing .netframework or whatever, it told me it requires 2097 Mb's but only 0 is available.04:46

greyhatpythonIs this True? Pros And Cons Of Ubuntu : http://www.efytimes.com/e1/fullnews.asp?edid=12156204:48
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2, gotta install it first.04:48
allstarsnorks2I know04:48
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2,unless it is part of the xubunutu install which I believe it is, look at the dropdown at the login.04:49
allstarsnorks2sudo apt-get update. After that, sudo apt-get install xfce4 right?04:49
maxklimhi all!04:49
allstarsnorks2wilee-nilee I'm using Ubuntu 13.1004:49
wilee-nileeallstarsnorks2, correct, sudo apt-get install xfce404:50
abaddongreyhatpython: Mmmm...yup04:50
abaddongreyhatpython: Welll...you can use a diffrent Desktop enviro04:51
abaddongreyhatpython: so you can remove the spyware easily04:51
wafflejockgreyhatpython: yeah it's a lot of hype04:52
greyhatpythonSo the default is spyware?04:52
abaddongreyhatpython: ...imho...yeah, I bet it is04:52
ubottuPlease do not fall prey to, or spread FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) - it is not welcome here!  Please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fear,_uncertainty_and_doubt04:53
abaddongreyhatpython: wilee-nilee Ok ok ok, sorry04:53
allstarsnorks2But will installing xfce4 on Ubuntu give me Xubuntu's look or just stock xfce?04:53
greyhatpythonIt is still a spyware even after i disable the online search results?04:53
wafflejockgreyhatpython: the lens does lookups on Amazon and it does log what you're typing in there just like Google logs stuff from your e-mail to tell you when your flight is and YouTube keeps track of what you watch to suggest Ads04:53
abaddongreyhatpython: Just read up on their polacies and the complaints.04:53
wafflejockgreyhatpython: you can use XUbuntu Kubuntu or some other flavor if you really want to avoid unity otherwise you can remove/disable the functionality04:54
abaddongreyhatpython: It's a really good os. It just has problems like all other os's out there04:54
wilee-nileegreyhatpython, No more spyware then the rest you are attached to when you hit the web, not really any more than a colloquial term and inaccurate at best.04:54
wafflejockgreyhatpython: I used Ubuntu for quite a while, was sort of off put when Unity came around (we fear change) but then it sort of grew on me... after checking out KDE though I decided I liked the control/customization more04:55
abaddongreyhatpython: After disabling the stuff you're more or less good.04:56

greyhatpythonok then i don't feel this is a critical issue.04:58
abaddongreyhatpython: cool, welcome to Ubu04:58
wafflejockgreyhatpython: yeah it's not like they're digging up your credit card numbers or watching you through your webcam, that said I personally am a bit paranoid and if I was trying to build a real secure system would start with gentoo or arch or something with less going on but I don't feel it's a huge issue04:58

lllThank you05:10

wilee-nileeabaddon, Hehe not really just a hobby, I'm in grad school on a totally unrelated study.05:13
lotuspsychjemorning to all05:14
wafflejocklotuspsychje: morning05:14
lotuspsychjewafflejock: hello mate05:14
abaddonwilee-nilee: Ahhh, gotcha.05:14
wilee-nileeabaddon, more of an obsession tough. ;)05:14
wafflejockyeah this is my chill out after work thing to do lately05:15
wafflejocktrying to help and learning05:15
lotuspsychjewafflejock: good idea05:15
abaddonwilee-nilee: I try and help to learn more. XD At the expince of others...he...he...he....05:15
wafflejockabaddon: that happens sometimes but it can be unfortunate, always need to be cautious when giving out advice05:16
lotuspsychjebest way of learning is solving problems05:16
abaddonwafflejock: Trust me, I really work on not giving out useless info. I just mess up at times. =/05:16
wafflejockdefinitely when you have to explain something you really need to know it so it forces you to get an understanding05:17
wafflejockabaddon: yeah I hear ya stuff happens (keeping it PG)05:17
abaddonwafflejock: Heh heh, pg05:17
lotuspsychjeim looking for an alternative to the package 'prey' an anti-theft program for laptops, any sugestions?05:18
lotuspsychje!info prey05:18
ubottuprey (source: prey): utility for tracking stolen computers. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.5.3-7.1ubuntu1 (saucy), package size 527 kB, installed size 1101 kB05:18
lotuspsychjeor a script maybe that can email the laptops location every ubuntu boot, would do the trick05:18
lotuspsychjeprey uses online administration and i dont like that very much05:19
=== woodchuck_ is now known as broketech
lotuspsychjeif someone hacks their online database, they can access all laptops location in the world...that not really the meaning of anti-theft right05:20
wafflejocklotuspsychje: if you configure sendmail to work you can just use mail to send a message I believe05:22
lotuspsychjewafflejock: but what information would it email?05:22
wheatthinlotuspsychje, use your imagination.05:22
wafflejocklotuspsychje: good question...05:22
lotuspsychjewheatthin: im trying to brainstorm about this, but prey is the only thing i found05:23
wafflejocklotuspsychje: perhaps route trace or something not sure about geo ip lookup easily from the command line though05:23
wheatthinlotuspsychje, that's more of an offtopic subject no?05:23
lotuspsychjewheatthin: no because im looking an ubuntu anti-theft package05:23
lotuspsychjei need an alternative ubuntu package05:24
wheatthinlol so go to #ubuntu-offtopic05:24
lotuspsychjethis is ontopic05:24
wheatthinIs your system stranded or unuseable?05:24
joossee_I keep having GUI programs crash in ubuntu 12.04. Things like firefox, transmission, and mupen64plus.. all seem to be around and ewrror "... crashed with SIGSEGV in XQuesryExtension()" can someone help me out?05:25
lotuspsychjewheatthin: users come here for sugestions of software also, not only broken things05:25
wheatthinlol Support not suggestions.05:26
=== AndresSM is now known as AndresSM_away
wilee-nileejoossee_, Have you booted a live cd/usb to see if it happens there?05:26
techkid6Is there a way to disable middle mouse in Ubuntu, especially the paste deal? I keep pasting accidentally copied things into my IRC shell (irssi)05:26
lotuspsychjewheatthin: support on information of existing packages05:26
abaddonwheatthin: mmmm offering alternatives is support.05:26
joossee_wilee-nilee, no. what is SIGSEGV ?05:27
abaddonjoossee_: look up on google?05:27
wafflejockjoossee_: https://www.google.com/search?q=SIGSEGV+in+XQuesryExtension&oq=SIGSEGV+in+XQuesryExtension&aqs=chrome..69i57.310j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#q=what+is+SIGSEGV&spell=105:27
wilee-nileejoossee_, Not sure, I would make sure this is not a a hardware problem with a live cd.05:27
abaddonlotuspsychje: I don't recall the name but there is another tracker.05:28
lotuspsychjeabaddon: nice, hope you refind in your memory :p05:28
abaddonlotuspsychje: something like patriot or eagle05:29
lotuspsychjeabaddon: lemme lookup tnx05:29
joossee_wafflejock, wilee-nilee i suspect there is a problem with my video card? would that be rational? I have error correcting server ram condfiured with 4GB's as backup on 32Gb ram server..05:29
abaddonlotuspsychje: I'll look through my bookmarks05:29
wheatthinjoossee_, is this 32bit or 64bit?05:29
joossee_wheatthin, 6405:29
joossee_i mean.. CLI stuff will run for days zero errors... but anything with a GUI seems suceptible?05:30
wilee-nileejoossee_, Dude, clinically it has been proven that the answer to any problem is gotten to fastest by starting at the simplest problems first.05:31
abaddonlotuspsychje: I think it actually was prey.... They just changed their web page05:32
abaddonlotuspsychje: =/05:32
joossee_wilee-nilee, dont disagree but running a boot CD..  does that even come with firefox? transmission? mupen64?05:32
lotuspsychjeabaddon: tnx for looking anyway mate05:32
abaddonjoossee_: it'll come with ff and transmission05:32
ianorlinunless it is mini05:32
wilee-nileejoossee_, FF yes Transmission I believe so, but is any of that even working for you now?05:33
lotuspsychjeabaddon: prey got a hidden package install, but i dont like its administration online05:33
wheatthinjoossee_, a livedvd will come with it, yes05:33
abaddonlotuspsychje: Yeah, sorry about that05:33
joossee_wilee-nilee, ya when it says firefox crashes, nothing actually happens. ff stays open works fine. transmission crashed and mupen crashed a day after i opened it...05:33
abaddonlotuspsychje: So I'm not sure whyn that's an issue? What is the likelyhood of them getting hacked?05:33
wilee-nileejoossee_ I suspect you have just messes up your install as a new user, could this be the case?05:33
joossee_can i get a live cd of server 64?05:33
joossee_wilee-nilee, i had to replace fglrx a bunch of times to make my cvard work... bad repos where to blame05:34
wafflejockjoossee_: doing a bit of googling I'm seeing a lot of it surrounding ATI05:34
lotuspsychjeabaddon: its just me, i dont trust online stuff, clouds..i prefer my own secure system05:34
wheatthinjoossee_, no, usually server installs are cli05:34
wafflejockjoossee_: yeah server install won't have the GUI05:34
irreverantwhats a good to share a screen online from ubuntu to windows05:34
wafflejockjoossee_: that's basically the point of the server install disk05:34
joossee_wheatthin, yes, but i installed ubuntu desktop ontop of server... this machine is a beast so overhead not a problem05:35
abaddonlotuspsychje: XD Gotta given an take bro. Maybe fork prey and improve upon it05:35
wilee-nileejoossee_, You have an upgrade right that had a bunch of not supported ppa's right?05:35
wheatthinjoossee_, but you can't install that ontop of a livecd05:35
abaddonlotuspsychje: Assuming it really is open05:35
joossee_wilee-nilee, yes the xorg/ender repo i think05:35
irreverantjoin.me doesnt work on ubuntu and screenleap seems to want to install java for linux, it uses rpm and then just offers linux05:35
irreverantbut im not sure if that means apt package installation05:35
joossee_wilee-nilee, now i only use the real ppas05:35
lotuspsychjeabaddon: maybe there's an ssh trick, once you boot laptop you could access it remote, but i need a warning method also05:36
irreverantany help?05:36
irreverantteam viewer a good one?05:36
wafflejockirreverant: likely a tar.gz which they will have a README for doing installation05:36
wafflejockirreverant: I've used Team viewer but not on linux it was fine05:36
wafflejockirreverant: if you just need remoting but not while viewing VNC will work (may be able to view as well can't recall)05:36
wilee-nileejoossee_, Heh, if it were me I would reinstall and document or remember/understand what I did and was doing. and clone at some point.05:36
joossee_wilee-nilee, i have a pretty good handle on what i did and did not do. not sure how thats helpful?05:37
abaddonlotuspsychje: hmmm, maybe write a bash script to ping tom a given network and if not on the network send an email?05:37
abaddonlotuspsychje: Then just use an application to get it's location05:37
lotuspsychjeabaddon: yes that might work05:37
lotuspsychjeabaddon: would be cool to get emails every ubuntu boot, if the thief is not too smart he will at least boot the latop once right05:38
abaddonlotuspsychje: If you're good with C or C++ maybe make us a newprog. ;P05:38
wilee-nileejoossee_, perfectly helpful, theoretically any open source OS is fixable, from your comments I doubt that last statement with a slight snicker. ;)05:38
joossee_i cant just go about rebooting my server to boot another OS. these errors arent super frequent.. just enuff to be annoying05:38
abaddonlotuspsychje: that'd do.05:39
wafflejocklotuspsychje: install mail-utils install sendmail install http://iharder.sourceforge.net/current/macosx/locateme/05:39
wilee-nileeI laugh in your general direction, not directly at you. ;)05:39
lotuspsychjewafflejock: tnx mate lemme look that up05:39
abaddonlotuspsychje: you could get his/her network info and tell the police to trace it05:39
joossee_w/e man its all good. i appreciate the help anyways05:40
wafflejockabaddon: police take forever... took them days to find me and I wasn't even hiding :)05:40
lotuspsychjeabaddon: an ip will do the trick :p05:40
irreverantyeah it was a tar.gz with a readme05:40
irreveranti just installed teamviewer installed05:40
wafflejockI also am not a big truster in the cloud services... looked at last pass for like 5 minutes and then got too paranoid and found KeePass05:41
wafflejockirreverant: let me know how it goes05:41
abaddonwafflejock: do I want to know...? >.>05:41
joossee_heres more details on the specific issue I get as a "SegvReason Reading unknown VMA" SegvReason: writing unknown VMA would mean that something was attempting to write to the destination of a pointer aimed outside of allocated memory. (This is sometimes a security issue.)05:42
wafflejockabaddon: you don't...05:42
abaddonwafflejock: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA05:42
wilee-nileewafflejock, I suppose so chicago is a big area oakpark is a bit smaller05:42

wilee-nileesandman13, Heh, easy mistake. ;)05:58
sandman13wilee-nilee: from home folder or from /06:00

lotuspsychjesandman13: firefox got default download list06:09
wilee-nileesandman13, for downloading what, with ubuntu you have apt-get the softwrae center or synaptic.06:10

Pinkamen1_DI had google chrome with a bunch of tabe up and I just hit the alt key and something by accident and it just vanished. I have a memory moniter so I know it is not closed, but the window does not appear in any desktop06:23
sandman13how to uninstall a program that is installed with java?06:24
wafflejocksandman13: java itself doesn't install programs06:24
wafflejocksandman13: or rather it's not typically used to install programs06:24
wafflejocksandman13: you can download a program with a java program then install it06:25
wafflejocksandman13: if it's a .sh file you'll have to see if it takes a --uninstall flag or has some other option for uninstalling06:25
wafflejocksandman13: if it's a .deb file you can use dpkg purge or dpkg deinstall if it's apt-get you use remove or purge06:26
sandman13wafflejock: in .sh file it is written java -jar filename.jar and nothing else06:26
wafflejockjava -jar just executes a java file06:26
wafflejockjar is a java archive06:26
wafflejock-jar just tells java runtime you're going to give it a jar file which is like a zip with a Manifest file in it that tells it which class to execute06:26
wafflejockthe class is a compiled java file06:27
wafflejockit could potentially do anything06:27
=== c_smith is now known as c_smith_away
sandman13wafflejock: that means i can simply remove it to "uninstall"06:27
wafflejocksandman13: generally speaking yes the jar file might write configuration files elsewhere but it's typical for a jar to have everything in it to run06:27
sandman13wafflejock: does the program leaves traces06:28
wafflejocksandman13: if you install stuff outside of apt-get though you need to follow the advice from the site where you obtained the installation about how to properly remove06:28
cyphaseanyone know what file to delete to re-enable the first time sudo message?06:29
wafflejocksandman13: this is one of the nice things about using dpkg/apt-get the packages have descriptors of what is installed where so it can be easily removed06:29
wilee-nileecyphase, first time sudo message?06:29
wafflejocksandman13: with a jar file it's up to whoever writes it to decide what conventions to follow when it comes to configuration files and the like06:29
cfhowlettcyphase, first time what?06:29
sandman13wafflejock: i followed the steps to get the programs like in this website: http://ubuntuportal.com/2013/04/xtreme-download-manager-alternative-internet-download-manager-for-linux.html06:31
cyphasewilee-nilee, sorry, it's late. that message that shows up the first time you use sudo; with great power comes great responsibility, etc06:31
meet_praveenhow can i set java home environment variable06:31
wilee-nileecyphase,  Poat the out out of running   lsb_release -a06:32
wafflejocksandman13: you probably want to get rid of the jar file and go into your browser settings and remove any extensions it installed... beyond that I have no idea really..06:32
sandman13wafflejock: okay let's see06:33
wafflejocksandman13: if you want to try to be a bit more sure you can use something like this: http://linux.die.net/man/1/inotifywatch to watch what files get changed06:35
wafflejocksandman13: I haven't used that one in particular but have used similar tools in windows to see what exactly an installer is doing06:35
sandman13wafflejock: normally where do these program get installed?06:36
eminorsandman13: you can use dpkg -L <name> to see what files are in a software package06:37
wafflejocksandman13: like I said with jar it can be anywhere really... well really any package can install anywhere06:37
wafflejockeminor: he's dealing with a jar he executed06:37
wafflejockeminor: it installs some junk in your browser06:37
eminordon't use java :>06:38
wafflejocksandman13: usually your programs installed through apt-get will just be setup in /usr/bin or have symbolic links there06:39
wafflejockeminor: nothing wrong with Java it's used in huge deployments on WebSphere servers running clusters of machines, client side java isn't anything great but on the server it's fine06:39
sandman13wafflejock: threw it out from firefox06:40
sandman13wafflejock: it used proxy to automate downloads in case of chrome06:41
sandman13wafflejock: changed proxy from automatic to none06:41

wafflejockgartral: http://askubuntu.com/questions/107230/what-happened-to-the-ia32-libs-package07:00
wafflejockgartral: alternatively have you considered compiling whatever it is that depends on ia32 that you are trying to install from the repos?07:01
gartralwafflejock: no, recompalation isn't an option07:03
wafflejockgartral: what are you trying to install07:04
gartralwafflejock: nothing it's a self-contained 32-bit app07:04
wafflejockI don't understand why it can't just be recompiled then? is it not open source?07:05
maekjust because I have an /etc/init.d script that does not mean its actually using upstart right?07:05
wafflejock!upstart | maek07:06
ubottumaek: Upstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/07:06
reisiomaek: running, you mean?07:06
maekor upstart features?07:06
maekwafflejock: thanks.07:06
wafflejockSystemV uses /etc/init.d upstart uses /etc/init07:06
gartralwafflejock: it *IS* tecnically opensource, but the code has 32-bit binblobs, and also many functions that are explicit hardcodes07:06
impradeepywafflejock please see this ouptut http://paste.ubuntu.com/6441430/ after line 15707:06
Ben64gartral: the solution is to use multiarch and get whichever libraries you need07:06
maekreisio: im new to ubuntu and I have elasticsearch installing what looks like a traditional sysV init script but its not working. im trying to debug it following upstart docs but I dont see the config file for the job, etc07:06
reisiohow's it not working?07:07
maekwafflejock: oh. so I guess its using sysV07:07
wafflejockimpradeepy: seems it's not possible then07:07
wafflejockmaek: yeah there's a mix right now I believe for backwards compatibility07:07
maekreisio: cant tell. no output. it just says 'started' but then no process and no ouput07:07
reisiomaek: that's not necessarily abnormal07:07
wafflejockmaek: with the plan to move everything to upstart eventually I believe07:07
maekok so its just sysV thne07:07
reisiomaek: mmmm, or it's running and you don't realize it :)07:08
reisiomaek: can you pastebin the init script?07:08
wafflejockmaek: basically SystemV was more linear in it's startup system upstart is based on dependencies and start things in parallel as soon as possible07:08
impradeepywafflejock  no way to install pwm-capable sensor modules?07:08
maekreisio: id be surprised. no port bound, no process etc07:08
reisioI think he cares less about sysv vs upstart and more about his service working07:08
wafflejockimpradeepy: yeah looks like a lack of hardware support for the PWM, it did seem a bit strange07:08
maekreisio: its the output of this https://github.com/elasticsearch/cookbook-elasticsearch/blob/master/templates/default/elasticsearch.init.erb07:09
impradeepywafflejock hp dm4 suckz07:09
wafflejockreisio: yeah just explaining cause I just read up on it and figure it's worth it to know07:09
maekI was expecting like an upstart job like runsvdir07:09
impradeepywafflejock thankuvey much07:09
reisiomaek: so pgrep -l elasticsearch, nothing?07:09
wafflejockimpradeepy: np07:10
maekreisio: correct.07:10
maekno port 9200 either07:10
reisiomaek: and the PIDFILE is not present?07:10
maeklet me check. i think its making the pid but nothing else07:10
=== Adran is now known as Adran2
=== Adran2 is now known as Adran
=== CyberJacob|Away is now known as CyberJacob
reisioif the pidfile is there it won't ever start07:11
maekthe start-stop-daemon command is tricky never seen anything like     ES_INCLUDE=$ES_INCLUDE start-stop-daemon --background --start --quiet --pidfile $PIDFILE --chuid <%= node[:elasticsearch][:user] %> --exec /usr/local/bin/elasticsearch -- -p $PIDFILE07:11
gpledhaving trouble formating a usb jump drive07:11
maekreisio: oh yeah, I delete it and it re creates07:11
reisiomaek: that said: https://gist.github.com/rbscott/105201507:11
reisioetc.: http://www.google.com/search?q=%22elasticsearch%22%20%22upstart%2207:11
maekreisio: ty will look.07:12
reisioyeah some of that is meant to be preprocessed07:12
reisiothe rest is normal looking for an init script07:12
maekyeah the erb stuff is clear but07:12
maek    ES_INCLUDE=$ES_INCLUDE start-stop-daemon --background --start --quiet --pidfile $PIDFILE --chuid <%= node[:elasticsearch][:user] %> --exec /usr/local/bin/elasticsearch -- -p $PIDFILE07:13
maekthat is basically the line that gets ran07:13
reisioit just says run the executable, and track it with a file07:13
maekand I have no idea how you run start-stop-daemon as an arg to a var setting. thats just blowing my mind trying to figure out what its doing.07:13
reisioit's not an arg to a var setting07:13
ripthejackerIs it recommended to use Ubuntu 13.10 server edition on a production server and then upgrade to 14.04 when it releases, or should I stick to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?07:13
reisioFOO=bar command just means run command with FOO=bar07:13
reisioinstead of, potentially, FOO being equal to what the environment ordinarily has07:14
maekah ok07:14
cfhowlettripthejacker, as I understand it, LTS is recommended for server stability so 12.04 to 14.0407:14
maekpath=foo command07:14
Ben64ripthejacker: either at this point, since both are one upgrade from 14.0407:14
reisioso if you have two X's running, for example, :0 and :1, you can say DISPLAY=:1 gedit to run gedit on the second one07:14
reisiomaek: yeah07:14
maekreisio: ok ty.07:14
reisioit's a one-off environmental variable reset07:14
reisioor a one-off variable07:14
cfhowlettripthejacker, consider: 13.10 has a 9 month lifespan.  Do you REALLY want to install/config a server every 9 months?  especially a production server?07:14
dancatHow can I add a process to start at boot and stop at shutdown by a specific user07:15
ripthejackercfhowlett, Ben64: What are the factors that I have to keep in mind while upgrading, such that the upgradation does not break my existing setup?07:15
gartralBen64: I tried that07:15
eyfourripthejacker: If you can afford downtime and troubleshooting (if necessary) during the upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04, and you need the newest features/versions badly, go ahead with 13.10. Otherwise, go 12.04 LTS.07:15
cfhowlettripthejacker, I'm not a server admin and I don't speak that language.  sorry ... see ben64 and eyfour 's comments or ask in #ubuntu-server07:16
Ben64ripthejacker: config files mostly07:16
gartralBen64: http://pastebin.com/LCwjth7U <- list of libs I need http://pastebin.com/7zp67aQX <- what happens when I try to install them07:16
Ben64gartral: ok, so thats not the correct name07:18
gartralripthejacker: your main concern will be your init level changes, make sure to read the changelogs for the version upgrade and pre-patch accordingly07:18
ripthejackerBen64, eyfour: what is the version I setup if I am definitely going to upgrade to 14.04?07:19
gartralripthejacker: 12.04 LTS07:19
cfhowlettripthejacker, you can directly upgrade 12.04 to 14.0407:19
eyfourripthejacker: 12.04 LTS07:19
Ben64yeah, 12.04 gives you much longer to engineer the upgrade07:20
ripthejackerthank you guys :)07:20
ripthejackerhave a nice day07:20

ubuntu870hi. I installed empathy-skype but there is no skype on online accounts07:35
reisioubuntu870: I think it might actually require skype to be running07:38
reisiooffering only the convenience of directly using only empathy, etc.07:38
Myrttiubuntu870: even if it would work with Skype running in the background, from what I've heard Microsoft is going to deprecate the API allowing you to use the empathy-skype thing in the near future07:39
reisiowell of course they are07:40
reisiobut that is always the case, with all things microsoft07:40

Ari-YangAkaigo-Arc 3.12.0-031200-generic x86_64 Description: Ubuntu 12.10 Codename: quantal07:48
Ben64pogiako1: raring is not 12.0407:48
pogiako1oh sorry07:49
pogiako1haha i thhought he said raring07:49
Ari-Yangpogiako1: 13.10 is most likely better, but may still have some bugs07:49
djangonoobI have problems with my new notebook. It has amd 8750m and intel 4400 and I tried to install graphic driver but I did something wrong or I used wrong driver or something. Now I can't even shutdown (it restarts automatically)07:49
Ari-Yangpogiako1: tbh I have half a mind to upgrade myself07:49
pogiako1Ari-Yang: yah thought so07:49
wafflejockpogiako1: yeah tried to go up to 13.10 when I was having some minor issues in 13.04 but dropped back to 12.04 cause of video card issues I didn't want to deal with07:49
Ben64pogiako1: you'll need to upgrade before january or you lose support07:50
pogiako1then where do you go from there?07:50
Ari-Yangpogiako1: tbh if you're on 13.04, you might as well upgrade to 13.1007:50
pogiako1should i fresh install 12.04?07:50
cfhowlettpogiako1, LTS only.07:50
Ari-Yangpogiako1: if you want lts, sure07:50
wafflejockcan just say make sure you back up your stuff.... I had everything backed up but wish I had just cloned with clonezilla/dd since restoration was still a bit of a pain07:50
Ari-Yang(lts = long term support)07:50
Ari-Yangpogiako1: though, 12.04 is most likely packaged with old and stale software, hop on to 13.10 for latest stuff07:51
pogiako1what's the usual problem with it?07:51
pogiako1and what's the ideal way to hop on to it?07:51
difoIs running ubuntu 12.04 virtual machine on a mac a lost cause?07:51
pogiako1difo: what do u mean?07:52
difoit's so slow, especially on virtual box07:52
pogiako1what are ur pc specs?07:52

pogiako1did u get the mac ver. of VB?>07:53
pogiako1what do you mean by slow?07:53
difoi tinkered with the settings for a couple hours..07:53
difomostly the mouse lags07:53
MonkeyDusthere too, ubuntu is slow in virtualbox07:54
difook, i've read that ubuntu is generally slow in vb07:54

reisiodifo: the default 'Ubuntu' desktop environment uses what is meant to be a hardware accelerated window manager07:55
difoyeah, that seems to be the consensus.. asking you guys was my last resort07:55
reisioso it could give that appearance, under many circumstances07:55
Ben64easy solution is to not use unity07:55
reisiouse another DE or window manager and it'll appear normal speed07:55
reisioyes indeed07:55
difoalright, thanks07:56
ak5any ideas for the local precise 64 repository>?07:56
reisioor if you want the authentic _appearance_ without the lag, try unity-2d07:56
pogiako1from 13.04, 13.10 fresh install or 13.10 upgrade?07:56
difolooking it up now, thanks again, reisio07:56

reisiomy guess is they're getting worse over time, but people could also just be complaining more08:02
Ari-Yangpogiako1: if you're going to do a fresh install anyway and want latest software packaged already, might as well go for 13.10... tinker with it, if you realize that it is too buggy, do a fresh install of 12.0408:03
djangonoobcan someone help me installing right graphics driver for my new notebook. I botched something and now I have problems like restarting instead of shutdown/standby08:03
* reisio headdesks08:03
pogiako1i'd go with something new and stable so which will it be?08:04
reisiowhy would you install an older version of something you know has a future of bugginess08:04
reisiomakes no sense08:04
=== parduse is now known as Guest39754

auronandacepogiako1: 13.10 has been stable for me08:05
pogiako1but as long as i wont have problems fixing it, like looking up google etc.08:06
cfhowlettpogiako1, you're using subjective terms that we can't possibly answer for you.08:06
wilee-nileepogiako1, It is the latest release, stable is your definition of, every users experience is different08:06

reisiodebasis: 'su' + do08:08
debasisI am new in linux...so i nedd help08:08
auronandace!sudo | debasis08:08
ubottudebasis: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo08:08
reisioit's meant to give root access to specific users for specific things08:08

UrielVigilantdjangonoob: that incidence happens after a hibernate session and the turning on laptop.09:52
cfhowlettUrielVigilant, dual boot doesn't matter other than the fact that the Windows 7 wifi keypress was F7.  I've no idea what the default keypress is on your computer, but try the alternatives I suggested.09:53
fahadashDoes ubuntu have a good C++ IDE in their software center ?09:54
cfhowlettfahadash, open the software center and see for yourself...09:54

cfhowlettUrielVigilant, I haven't been following your thread.  If I understand, some of your media keys don't work?  Could be you need to install the linux firmware09:55
cfhowlettUrielVigilant, reinstall is the LAST resort, of course.09:56
cfhowlettUrielVigilant, try this: open a terminal.  type apt-cache policy linux-firmware and verify that it's installed or not09:57
cowbaconcfhowlett: proper partition schemes and a reinstall wont break anything :)09:57
UrielVigilantafter i did : http://paste.ubuntu.com/6441869/  it cmoe works again . But now i ´m thinking why this wireless card stop working sudently when using hardware switc button to turn off ?09:57
cfhowlettcowbacon, true, true.  I've a personal bias.  Too many people scream !reinstall just like they scream !bug whenever anything little thing takes more than 15 seconds of googling to repair09:57
cowbaconcfhowlett: completly true. if users learn how to fix problems themself the community as a whole would benefit greatly. however, many aren't interested in tinkering with their system and just want something that works, and a reinstall is the easiest path then09:59

djangonoobthe hardware button is not working10:10
ActionParsnipdjangonoob: but the wifi is working. WHy do you need the button?10:10
Rorydjangonoob: With how long it took you just to get it working, I'd just do without the button. You can disable wifi in ubuntu using network manager anyway10:10
arcsky_are there any way to install ubuntu via console  or ssh ?10:11
ObrienDaveRTFM ;)10:11
djangonoobIt is not really necessary to get the button working but it would be nice10:11
jpdsarcsky_: Yeah, netboot with PXE/DHCP/preseed is an option.10:12
ActionParsnipdjangonoob: if you run:   xev    and press the button, does it make an event?10:12

djangonoobActionParsnip, do I need firmware or something, or is it not possible10:13
Rorydjangonoob: Could you link again the instructions you followed to get your wifi working?10:14

UrielVigilantI can´t wait for version 14.x LTS10:19
cfhowlettUrielVigilant, actually , you can.  But come April, I'll be as excited as everyone else since I only use LTS.10:20

UrielVigilantI have 2 GB RAM Celeron M (440) 1.86GHz with 80 GB hardrive and an (Intel GMA 950) , i started with Ubuntu 13.10 but once i tryed Lubuntu 13.10, i decided that is almost 50 to 100 times faster10:22
cfhowlettUrielVigilant, lubuntu and xubuntu are both optimized for older and lower spec machines like yours.10:24
UrielVigilantAnd its better for GAming , in OnLIVE using PlayOnLinux, better graphics quality and faster too10:24
fahadashcfhowlett, I already spent 20 minutes. Downloaded and try 3 apps... Can you tell me already if you know one ?10:24

fahadashI am looking for a good development tool for c++10:24
UrielVigilantcfhowlett : do you think lubuntu could be faster then xubuntu ?10:24
cfhowlettfahadash, I'm not a developer but ... take a look at the ubuuntu Sputnik version (Dell).  You can add any of those packages to vanilla ubuntu10:25
cfhowlettUrielVigilant, they should be pretty similar.  to try it though: sudo apt-get install lxde.  Logout.  choose lxde session.  login.  You10:25
cfhowlettUrielVigilant, you'll get the lubuntu experience but not the apps  and integration.  If you like it, sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop10:26
RoryUrielVigilant: lxde uses fewer graphical resources than Unity so it is more responsive on older systems10:26
UrielVigilantcfhowlett: iam already with Lubuntu, what i need to typo to try Xubuntu ?10:26
cfhowlettUrielVigilant, sudo apt-get install xfce4.  then same as I described above10:27

I got few configuration directories which has 777 permission as normal user "**NOT AS SUDO**". I would like to know, is there any exploit or alternate way to setuID 0 to a file.10:46

hamsterany idea?10:59
aslanBen64, I understand that. but my official system here runs in 11.0. and I need to do this . Im not allowed to upgrade for local package and kernel  issues10:59
cfhowlettaslan, then you're running an unsecured system.10:59
OerHeksaslan, exploits for that old version are no longer valid, so useless to investigate.11:00
aslancfhowlett, ya I got that but the problem is, we cant upgrade due to the mono version issue for our application11:01

ufkhow can i update from precise to saucy ? do-release-upgrade doesn't show me of new versions of debian11:01
Andenhamster: i.e. press alt+f2 to get run promt and type xterm11:02
aslanOerHeks, could you suggest me some other privilege escalation in 12.0 or further release11:02
DJonesufk: Precise is LTS so by default only shows LTS->LTS updates, Saucy isn't LTS so there isn't a direct upgrade path to that11:02
Ben64ufk: firstly, new versions of debian would never show up, since ubuntu is not debian. secondly, you should wait for 14.04 and upgrade directly to that11:03
hamsterAnden: It does not even let me login to do that. Its broken. So now im in my guest user doing Alt+Ctrl+F2 and trying to kill anything that would store that setting11:03
Ben64aslan: still not within the scope of this channel. we're here to help people fix ubuntu problems, not help someone create more11:03
DJonesufk: You would need to upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10, then 13.04 and then 13.10, or wait until 14.04 is released which will be LTS and you'll be able to upgrade directly11:03
Andenhamster: what if you su to your account without the login shell parameter?11:03
OerHeksaslan, no, i won't help you with exploits, as it is not the topic of this channel, try the backtrack channel or security related channels, thanks.11:03
ufki must have saucy, it's a local server that should be identical to a remote server on amazon. how do i upgrade to 12.10 ?11:04

DJonesufk: Are you on a server or desktop version11:05
Ben64ufk: precise -> quantal -> raring -> saucy11:05
ufkas far as i know11:05
Ben64takes a long time and isn't always smooth11:05
Andenhamster: sorry, didn't read what you had to say from the start, i assumed your problem was acessing your user in any way11:05
Ben64ufk: you'd be much much better off waiting for trusty (14.04) to come out in ~5 months11:06
hamsterAnden: no, I can access my user from terminal but not from the login screen11:06
Andenhamster: but it's a good thing you can run commands from that user11:06

ak5wilee-nilee: i specifically do not want multi-arch11:11

ak5wilee-nilee: trying to save on bandwidth on apt-get update11:12
ak5wilee-nilee: live in china, don't care about 32bit bins11:12
wilee-nileeak5, Do you want say firefox?11:12
ActionParsnipwilee-nilee: your OS is multi-arch, you will just haul in a tonne of 32bit packages as edeps. This is  how you get Skype in 64bit Ubuntu11:13
wilee-nileeak5, only 32 bit in the repos.11:13
wilee-nileeActionParsnip, true, I am just wondering if the user has a dream or has any understanding is all.11:13
gordonjcpI wonder why people are so keen on Skype?11:14
Ben64wilee-nilee: firefox is 64 bit, don't know why you think its 32 only11:14
ak5my question is really only can I add deb-amd64 instead of deb as a prefix for those mirror lines11:14
ActionParsnipgordonjcp: possibly because its on everything etc, no idea otherwise11:14

Ben64ak5: and?11:16
ak5Ben64: this is what I am trying to solve. Problem exists11:17
Ben64thats not a problem11:17

Ben64watch the language here11:18
ak5Sure, stop the assumptions too please11:18

slaw45HI. Can someon tell me what is safer, built-in encryption on ubuntu or truecrypt?11:33
gordonjcpslaw45: both are as bad as each other11:34
gordonjcpslaw45: if you want to make sure you get rid of all your data, dban11:35
ActionParsnipslaw45: just let the default installer do its job. Easys11:36
slaw45Thx Guys11:37
gordonjcpslaw45: when disk encryption loses your data there's still the theoretical possibility that someone might be able to recover fragments of it11:37
gordonjcpslaw45: better to just dban the drive, or if you really want to be sure, smash it flat with a big hammer11:37
cfhowlettslaw45, nuke it from orbit.  It's the only way to be sure.11:37

One time I did this and came back about 30 minutes later and the popup had appeare and worked properly. Running commands like pm-suspend from the command line works fine. Any ideas?12:36

AnaxandridasHello, everyone. I have an old guy who asked me to write a DVD for him, of one of my movies. This isn't something I've ever done (because I'm not over 50 years old). Every time I try to write the movie directly onto the disc, it tells me there's not enough space (which is odd, there's 4 GB of space on the DVD). I've tried using Brasero to make an image file, but it gets to 2 MB and just stops, sits there for hours. Tried using12:43
Anaxandridas K3b, but it needs me to have TS Video and TS Audio folders, which I do not. Tried a couple others, which didn't work for varying reasons. Can someone please inform me of how to go about using this ancient technology known as DVD writing?12:43

impradeepybe more specific guest3801812:47
Pac-manhello fellas! ;d12:48
BluesKajis this a commercial ly abailable movie , Anaxandridas , if so it might be DRM protected , and you'll need libdvdcss2 from videolan,org to bypass the DRM12:48
Pac-manam I in the right corner for discussing ubuntu?12:48
zykotick9Anaxandridas: 1) dvd's are made to prevent easy copying 2) commercial DVDs are almost always larger in size then 4GB (which typically means you need to re-encode the video to make it fit)  3) i don't have an easy suggestion on how to copy it - but perhaps someone else does...  best of luck!12:48
Guest38018so, I want to start up 2 browsers in 2 different screens directly when I boot up12:48
AnaxandridasIt's not a DRM issue. It's an 'I've never had a reason in my life to do this, and I rather suck at it' issue.12:49
amageeGuest38018: that seems to be a different question from just setting up multiple screens.. have you got the multiple screens working how you want?12:49
amageeGuest38018: so your question is about starting apps on login?12:49
cfhowlettPac-man, greetings.12:49
usr13zykotick9:  You can use mplayer to convert a DVD to just a video file, (that's one way).12:49
AnaxandridasAllow me to specify though, because you both had the exact same response. I'm not burning a DVD. I'm writing one. If I were burning a DVD, that would take me three minutes, two and a half of which would be petting my cat as it walked across the keyboard.12:50
BluesKajAnaxandridas. check out the size of the movie to make sure it fits on the disk12:50
zykotick9usr13: while true, that doesn't get it back onto a dvd...12:50
Anaxandridas... If this were a matter of me being unable to tell whether something is 700 MB, or 7 GB, BluesKaj, the answer would probably be to shoot myself in the face.12:50

AnaxandridasWell, I just took a look at k9copy, it seems to need an image file to work with. Which is fine, but Brasero, the program I've been trying to use to make image files, has not worked. Can someone recommend a program to make an ISO/Cue?12:58
AnaxandridasBluesKaj, because the guy's in his 70s. He's one of those types who doesn't even own a computer :/12:59

BluesKajheh , Anaxandridas I'm 70 :)12:59
BluesKajzykotick9. do you still chat there ?13:00
usr13Anaxandridas: But converting to file and then back into DVD format is a long way around to just make a duplicate DVD.  If the DVD manufacturer decides that you should not have a backup copy, you probably shouldn't do it, just protect the one you have.13:00
AnaxandridasBluesKaj, I tried explaining to him that doing this is kind of like taking a CD and putting it on an audiocassette. I don't think I've written to, or ripped from, a DVD in at least six years. And, like I said... He's a septuagenarian who doesn't even own a computer.13:00
BluesKajAnaxandridas. bummer13:01
Anaxandridasusr13, though I really appreciate the continued help, I have stated many times that I am not ripping from a DVD. I am trying to write TO one. I have no DVD, I'm trying to make one.13:01

Anaxandridasusr13, yes, in whatever manner I can. I have multiple different file options, avi, mp4, mkv, whatever works. I just need to figure out how to make a DVD from it. I haven't done this in many, many years. I've tried making an image, but Brasero isn't cooperating there. None of the others seem to functionally do it without an Image file.13:03
Anaxandridasusr13, I'm continuing to cycle through varying programs. For one reason or another, none of them have worked out for me, though I'm sure to a large extent that's because I'm new to Linux.13:04
zykotick9Anaxandridas: check out devede <- only way I've personally made a functional DVD from a video file13:04
AnaxandridasThanks zykotick9, I'll try that one.13:05
usr13Anaxandridas: I think there is an app for this, (GUI app), but don't know what it is, the name or what ever, but you can do it from the command line with dvdauthor.  Once you have right video format, it is doable with dvdauthor.  See:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/6442667/13:05

Pac-manI'm not sure what DE, but what I know, is that I have found autostart file and changed its contents, deleted all unnecessary files too, and the black border is still there, cause I dont like fake transparency for cairo13:19
Pac-manwhen I launch after logging and cairo-dock is loaded too -> xcompmgr -n& it works, but in autostart not anymore, thats weird I think13:20
zykotick9Pac-man: are you using Mint?13:21
usr13Pac-man: I don't know about the black border and I'm out of time anyway, but autostart files are particular to your window manager and/or desktop environment, so...13:21

RoryPac-man: See the /topic for the currently supported Ubuntu versions: on the desktop that is 12.04, 12.10, 13.04 and 13.1013:32

gordonjcpPac-man: can you clearly identify which bit is causing you problems?  Maybe you should ask in the IRC channel for that application?13:33

zykotick9ActionParsnip: colour me disappointed.  a TTY is any terminal either console or xorg.  Those are consoles/linux consoles/virtual terminals(VTs)17:21
zykotick9MonkeyDust: ctrl-alt-backspace has been disabled by default (for a while now)17:22
OerHeksMonkeyDust, CTRL + ALT + PrintScreen + K17:22
zykotick9OerHeks: is teh ctrl required?17:23
OerHekszykotick9, as i remember it, yes, i am too lazy to try now :-D17:23
zykotick9OerHeks: ya, i'm not gonna "test" it either, but i think it's just alt+sysrq+k17:24
ActionParsnipzykotick9: its a text only console, will allow updates to rol and may fix things17:25
zykotick9ActionParsnip: i'm just asking that you don't use TTY incorrectly, they're consoles.  ;)17:25
ses1984i have had this problem with lots of systems using older integrated graphics, and i don't know what the root of the problem is:17:25

Mace268Can anyone suggest a good disaster recovery backup system that's reliable and fairly easy to use?17:26
ses1984like i just rebooted this system that i updated, and as soon as i enter 'sudo shutdown -r now' the video goes nuts and just shows a bunch of flashing distortion17:26
MonkeyDustMace268  rsync is fast17:26
moppyMace268, Ubuntu has a built in backup client. Just remember. If you dont test your restore, you don't have a backup17:27
Mace268i can't get the built-in to backup /var and /etc though17:27
MonkeyDustMace268  you can use rsync for that17:28
moppyMace268, There is bakula, and rsync. Bakula is automated and easy to configure17:28
moppyMace268,  rsync works but you need to manually do some work to manage incremental backups17:28
Mace268does rsync get all file attributes as well?17:28
P1roHi, im trying to find a way to install ubuntu using a old ipod as hard drive, im reading that syslinux can help me but i cant get syslinux working.17:29
moppyMace268, Yes rsync can do that17:29
MonkeyDustyes, rsync -a     <-- archive17:29
moppyMace268, are you needing rotating daily backups, or something?17:29
Mace268no i just want to backup my system so it's quick to restore in case of a hd failure17:30
moppyMace268, Is your data encrypted?17:30
moppyMace268, OK, rysync should be fine to just image your files every month or so.17:30
moppyMace268, But why are you backing up /var? Webserver?17:31
Mace268plex media server17:31
ses1984ActionParsnip: i updated everything, still getting the same video problems17:32
moppyMace268, good luck with it, just remember to test the restore.17:32
Mace268have you had any experience with FSArchiver? it seems to be in the repos too17:32

OerHeks!nounity| sandman13, no, i think you want ubuntu-gnome-desktop18:09
ubottusandman13, no, i think you want ubuntu-gnome-desktop: 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 !18:09

ses1984is there something like an ubuntu enterprise flavor that doesn't come with amazon integration, hard coded bookmarks to photo, music and video files in nautilus, etc?19:07
yash069live wallpaper ?19:07
airtonixkarab44: you mean like having a web page as your background?19:07
karab44for example imagine that desktop is a desk where you want to place photos everywhere on it19:08
anternatis bash scripting C++? another language? what exactly is it?19:08
ikoniases1984: the desktop is enterprise ready, it's up to you to build an image specific ot your enterprise19:08
ApteryxHi everyone! Could anyone comment on the state of Moonlight? Is the project dead? What is the way to get the latest version running on Ubuntu 13.10?19:08
ses1984bash is a language19:08
ses1984ikonia: you have to recompile nautilus from source to remove the links to photo, music and video files19:08
karab44then you could easily move it and scale it and manage interactively through desktops.19:08
ses1984that's enterprise ready?19:08
anternatty ses198419:08
airtonixses1984: brotip: install gnome-shell and gdm, dpkg-reconfigure lightdm, choose gdm. never deal with amazon integration again :)19:08
ikoniases1984: no you don't,19:08
ikoniases1984: you build a pressed image,19:08
ses1984that's what a ton of sources have told me19:08
ikoniases1984: then I suggest getting a grip on things before coming in all "smart"19:09
ikoniases1984: pretty much every desktop on linux will have bookmarks etc in place by default19:09
ses1984yeah but in old versions of nautilus you could just right click remove, now remove is disabled19:09
ikoniases1984: remove what ?19:10
yash069karab44: one way is to have conky ... but it will be to much work to do ...19:10
karab44I just wanted to printscreen but it stopped woriking...19:10
P1roikonia thank you :D19:10
ses1984on the top left of nautilus, in the places section, there's a list of folders that are in home holder, like Desktop, Documents, Music, Photos, Video, etc19:10
airtonixses1984: have you looked into xdg-desktop spec?19:10
karab44yash069: could I using conkey throw pictures on the desktop?19:10
P1roikonia ill try that,19:10
ses1984airtonix: no, checking that now19:11
airtonixkarab44: yes, if you used a lua module.19:11
yash069not sure but i think so ...19:11
karab44well we have two different opinions. OK guys let me check that :)19:11
airtonixses1984: from memory, there's a file in your home folder that specifies where they point to by default. not sure if removing or setting blank variables removes them19:11
=== busy_eliasps is now known as eliasps
ikoniaairtonix: it's a shell varible isn't it, XDG_$SOMETHING19:12
airtonixkarab44: just be warned, using a lua module means writing your own lua code.19:12
Davidovhi to all19:12
karab44airtonix: Good, that's not a big problem actually19:12
Anuskais easy install with  aptitude install zvh19:12
airtonixikonia: yep, but i think it's loaded in from either .profile, .bashrc or a file that doesn't normally exist.19:12
Davidovthere are some solution to extract large (20BG) rar files without kill the system ??? (Ubuntu 12.04 64bit)19:13
ikoniaDavidov: it won't kill the system if you have resources needed available to it19:13
airtonixkarab44: you'll find plenty of examples on using opengl and image drawing19:13

geniiairtonix: I think ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs19:14
yash069not pretty much what u want but have a look19:14
airtonixses1984: ^ what genii said.19:14
Davidovikonia--> for resurces you intend swap space or space in the partition where I'm going do extract ?19:14
ikoniaDavidov: everything, cpu, ram, swap, disk space19:14
ses1984airtonix: thanks19:14
Davidovikonia--> mmmhhh ok I undestand :)19:15
yash069Anuska: to install just use apt-get install <package-name>19:15
karab44ikonia: airtonix yash069 Thank you guys19:15
ses1984i guess i should go through my history and try to leave comments on all of these sources that claimed removing those items from the places sections required a change of source and recompile19:15
ikoniases1984: no, as they are correct if you are asking the question you are asking19:15
ikoniases1984: if you want this by "default" then it is a compile option, if want this dynamic/changed from default compile options it's a configuration19:16
ses1984the questions asked were usually like this "how can i remove video from the places menu" and the answer "change source and recompile" ... that smells wrong to me19:17
ikoniases1984: it depends how you look at it, it's not technically wrong, but it is wrong for the question you asked, but the way you asked it was not also correct19:17
ses1984even if you want it 'default' it seems like it would be much easier to keep using the nautilus packages in the repos19:17
IEatTwixI can't turn wlan off, I get a "SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted".. Any idea what might cause it?19:18
ses1984sorry if i came in here with a less than friendly tone. i've had a bad morning. thanks for help everyone.19:19
airtonixses1984: personally i feel it would be great if the gnome team approached all functionality of their apps as addon/plugin architecutre and just dogfooded  their own efforts. this would make releasing the kind of tools you want more practical.19:19

xanguaurielvigilant: plug it, done19:28
karab44guys this is what I want my desktop looks like. Actually all pictures are opened in some photoviewer. It would be cool to have them directly locked/unlocked on desktop. http://wstaw.org/m/2013/11/19/Screenshot_from_2013-11-19_200501.png19:29
urielvigilantxangua, i will try that19:29
karab44So using some scripting in conkey I can achieve that ?19:30
Anuskaubuntu is not good19:31
PiciAnuska: Is this the same system you were trying to install rpm packages on earlier?19:31
Anuskais ubuntu19:32
PiciAnuska: It wouldn't surprise me if doing that broke your install.19:32
PiciAnuska: Because rpms are not designed in mind with the way that Ubuntu organizes files.19:33
geniiYou should also probably use apt-get since aptitude is not graceful about packages mixed between 32 and 64 bit19:33
Anuskai try to install alien19:33
Anuskais a simple command19:33
Sh1G3rUcant you just use sudo apt-get install alien ??19:35

urielvigilantxangua it dont work . it come with a rives cd for windows. where i can find drives or something for Lubunut ?19:36
Anuskai use alien to learn commands19:37
urielvigilantPlease someone help me, make a joystick work to play Onlive on PlayOnLinux  in Lubuntu 13.1019:37
xanguaurielvigilant: if it's not a weird joystick, it should be just plug and play; you may need to configure the keys for whatever you are tryingo to play19:37
yash069isn't alien used to make .deb packages out of rpms?19:37
yash069what commands ?19:38
ubottuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !dpkg, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)19:38
urielvigilantXAngua config where ? I found somthing about joypad and drives on internet ?19:38
xanguato play online on playonlinux huh... urielvigilant you never mentioned that19:38
urielvigilantxangua, yes ...19:38
Sh1G3rUAnuska,  try first to apt-get update && apt-get upgrade first19:38
urielvigilantplay Onlive on PlayonLinux19:38
AtluxityI tried installing i3, then removed it, now when I do notify-send its not a cute buble as it used to, its a bland flat text field to the top left corner. How to debug this?19:39
xangua(13:28:32) urielvigilant: I bought a joystick to play OnLive on Lubuntu. What steps i need to make it work ? - don't see  it mention ther, otherwise you can try #winehq for wine related questions19:39
Sh1G3rUAnuska,  it worked just fine on my http://paste.ubuntu.com/6444483/19:40
yash069Anuska: u should have installed fedora or some other distro what use rpm as package manager, if wanted to play around with rpms only.19:40
trismAtluxity: looks like you replaced notify-osd with dunst19:40
urielvigilantxangua, you mean i should install the windows drives for this joystick ?19:40
AnuskaSh1G3rU, i restart linux and work19:41
xanguaurielvigilant: where do you read i mean that¿19:41
Anuskayash069, yes >) but i like ubuntu19:41
urielvigilantxangua, you talk about wine19:41
Sh1G3rUAnuska,  just do a update and upgrade and possibly a dis-upgrade apt-get19:41
Sh1G3rUit can fix alot of librari links etc19:41
Atluxitytrism: aha, thanks. After I remove it, do I reload unity?19:41
trismAtluxity: you could see if dunst is running, kill that, then notify-osd should autostart on the next notification19:42
trismAtluxity: but a log out/back in would do it too19:42

yash069Anuska, what about ubuntu, DE, name ..  ?19:43
urielvigilantMaybe its better to instal jstest to make koystick work doesn it ?19:44
rmobenchainI'm using ubuntu 13.10 and was wondering if i can undo some installs done recently.  thought they would help graphics and sound and it made it worse19:44
xanguaurielvigilant: jtest is just a configuration tool, you know you are using wine right¿19:45
Anuskayash069 what?19:45

urielvigilantxangua, should i install the joystick windows drives inside te same drive has  OnLIVE19:46

rmobenchainI'm using ubuntu 13.10 and was wondering if i can undo some installs done recently.  thought they would help graphics and sound and it made it worse19:47
wilee-nileermobenchain, These installs within 13.10 and do you remember what they were?19:48
rmobenchainwilee-niles:no, I cannot.  is there a way to see a list of recent installs?19:49
yash069rmobenchain: yes, look in software manager19:49
wilee-nileermobenchain, Where did you run them from, apt-get has a history if you type it and hit enter.19:49
rmobenchainwilee-niles:  used the terminal19:50
wilee-nileermobenchain, yes, type history and hit enter, some commands show some do n ot is all.19:50
wilee-nileeinstalls should show though19:51
rmobenchainok... got the history.  stupid question now.  how do i remove?19:51
wilee-nileermobenchain, That history is stored in ~/.bash_history thats in home and hidden19:52
wilee-nileermobenchain, Depends on what it is, I'm not real up on graphic issues, nor so I mess with sound, you might make a list of what your commands are and pastebin it to give a helper info19:53
wilee-nileermobenchain, Then use this with your description here of the details of the problems your having, include the graphic hardware info as well.19:55
rmobenchainwilee-niles:  quite honestly, it all started when i installed a vlc player.  can i just remove that and see what happens?19:56
wilee-nileermobenchain, sure, you can run purge to get it all or just remove, I'm surprised vlc is a problem though.19:57
rmobenchainwilee-niles:  I have my history up in the terminal, you want me to cut and paste line by line what i have?19:58
wilee-nileermobenchain, you would want to use a pastebin if more than one line, and link these installs with the problems basically, organized is the key word. Do you need the apt-get for removing vlc?19:59
rmobenchainwilee niles: please.  that would be great :)19:59
wilee-nileermobenchain, sudo apt-get purge vlc  that should remove all of it and the config if you used remove rather than purge the config would remian.20:00

rmobenchainwilee-nilee: oh yeah, that's right!20:01
MoL0ToVi have a problem: sometimes i hear the audio, but if i insert the minijack of headphone i cannot hear sound in the headphone. howto fix? sometimes this happen when i before boot windows then linux20:01
wilee-nileermobenchain, Keep in mind my limitations though on graphic issues and some sound issues, I'm just trying to help you organize this situation. ;)20:01
cablese habla español?20:03
rmobenchainwilee-nilee: I appreciate it.  does that sudo apt purge work on something like: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade20:03
wilee-nileermobenchain, That is all apt-get those are for calling the repos (update) installing (upgrade) remove and purge are what the phonetically sound like.20:04

ubotturmobenchain: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)20:05
rmobenchainhuh?  what?20:06
wilee-nileermobenchain, Not correct upgrade is used to install what update found, you would already have the latest flashplugin-installer, however some packages have newer versions per the release, flash is the same for all.20:07
rmobenchainwilee-niles: hmmm... this is just agitating now.  youtube is all sorts of choppy and i know i must have done something20:08
wilee-nileermobenchain, Flash is easiest installed with installing the ubuntu-restricted-extras which includes other codecs and the ms fonts if you want them.20:08
wilee-nileermobenchain, Are you trying to use the highest like 1080 resolution perchance on youtube?20:09
wilee-nileehigh definition in other words20:09
rmobenchainwilee-nilee: no.  am on 480p20:10
wilee-nileermobenchain, What is your chip IE cpu and the ram amount?20:11
rmobenchainwilee-nilee: uh, where would i find that?20:12
wilee-nileermobenchain, Not the clearest question, mainly I'm trying to see if the hardware is up for the high load of what your doing, and or in the end check if anything is using up resources that should not.20:13
wilee-nileermobenchain, What is the computer maker and model?20:13
rmobenchainHP Pavilion Slimline s3220n20:14
wilee-nileermobenchain, An okay computer about 5 years old 2 gig s ram and a dual core, Are you using any other resources when trying youtube, and is this 64 or 32 bit?20:16
rmobenchainwilee-nilee: am on a 32bit and only have facebook open in another tab20:17
rmobenchainwilee-nilee: am also using Chrome.20:17
wilee-nileermobenchain, Facebook is a very large code draw, try closing it the using youtube.20:17
wilee-nileethe browsers are a bit high users of the ram as well20:18
rmobenchainwilee-nilee: ok, trying now20:18
trismrmobenchain: you aren't using the chrome dev channel, are you? they recently enabled the aura, and it was terribly slow for me until I enabled Override software rendering list in chrome://flags20:19
Atluxityany of you use gnome shell and got any tips you want to share with me? extentions or simular20:19
wilee-nileermobenchain, You should install htop, and run htop from the terminal and it will tell you what is using what and how much such ans the cpu=chip and memory=ram. A conky would help to see this right on the desktop.20:19
rmobenchain!trism: not sure what you are talking about.  kinda of a newbie to ubuntu20:19

trismrmobenchain: I was just wondering which version of chrome you were running, they have stable, beta and dev channels, but if you don't know you probably aren't running dev so you can ignore my comment20:20

rmobenchaintrism: Am using Chrome Version 31.0.1650.5720:21
trismrmobenchain: yeah that's not the version of the dev channel, it is chrome 3320:22
trismrmobenchain: so not the issue I mentioned, sorry20:22
wilee-nileermobenchain, Chrome also has its own built in flash, just a heads up.20:22

BluesKajdougl. cool sounds like you've got it under control there20:32

stunts513anyone have an idea how to setup ubuntu to reload my wifi modules whenever it doesnt detect internet without having to promt me for root privis?20:39
wilee-nileestunts513, Its not root its the user password.20:39
stunts513well yea but it needs elevated privis20:40
bekksstunts513: Yes.20:40
wilee-nileestunts513, Are you sure?20:40
stunts513well yes to run rmmod and modprobe you need to elevate your privis20:40
wilee-nileestunts513, Cool, well more details would probably help, IE the wifi hardware, and how you set it up.20:41
stunts513to put it plainly the b43 driver seems to be messing up randomly and the o nly way for it to connect or detect any wifi is to reload the b43 module20:42

wilee-nileesidney2466, look at the winusb here, there are other easy ways if this does not work. http://askubuntu.com/questions/116885/can-i-use-ubuntu-to-write-a-windows-7-iso-to-usb-in-ubuntu22:53

Sh1G3rUsidney2466, you have to format a USB in ntfs use gparted or something else then you have to make the usb bootable with unetbootin22:54
wilee-nileewilee-nilee, Ah I see you tried it already, a ntfs partition with a boot flag and extracted with the archive manager works a right click on the iso22:54
wilee-nileesidney2466, I would md5sum the iso winusb has worked everytime here.22:56
