fobelxhi. i want to install 32-bit SDLnet library on my 64-bit ubuntu install.00:03
fobelxwhat is the package name?00:04
jrib!multiarch | fobelx00:04
jribfobelx: use multiarch (i.e. just append :i386 to the package)00:04
hitsujiTMOfobelx: libsdl-net1.2:i386   appears to be the right one00:05
jribfobelx: why do you want this package by the way?00:06
hitsujiTMOfobelx: sorry: there are some later versions. what version are you looking for?00:06
=== miguel_ is now known as Guest66109

weissbierhi, one question, why is the net-tools package that outdated? there is "net-tools 2.10" but ubuntu ships with "net-tools 1.60"00:17
zzxcdaftykins: Hey, its up and running.00:17
weissbierany specific reason, or is it because people should use iproute2?00:17
zzxcdaftykins: Ain't exactly pretty but its running for the first time in a while.00:17
Beldarweissbier, You would have to ask the ubuntu developers, in gneral the release your running can be a factor.00:18
weissbieri'm using ubuntu 13.1000:18
hitsujiTMOweissbier: according to the upstream source 1.6 is the latest00:18
Beldarweissbier, Is there an actual attached to this other than "the latest"?00:19
weissbiernah, just the output of the newer versions is more verbose00:19
Beldarthats an opinion00:19
weissbieri was compiling http://sourceforge.net/projects/net-tools/00:20
weissbierthats not a bug for me, i just was curious00:21
hitsujiTMOweissbier: http://sourceforge.net/projects/net-tools/files/?source=navbar  is current stable. you're probably compiling the dev build00:21
weissbieryeah, i was cloning the git00:22
litropyhow can I check why a package has been held back by apt-get?00:22
weissbierany ppa with the git-build anywhere?00:22
Jordan_Uweissbier: If you look at git HEAD of a project you're almost never going to be looking at a stable release.00:22
weissbierinteresting that fedora uses some newer release of it00:23
zykotick9litropy: does "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" offer to install them?  regular "upgrade" can't install new packages, or removing blocking packages.00:24
clynamenI'm on ubuntu 12.04, How can I install a package that is on latest ubuntu versions without conflicting with other packages?00:24
zykotick9clynamen: you can't really.  check for a PPA for the software you're interested in updating.  good luck, going down this road - you might need it ;)00:25
zykotick9!ppa | clynamen if your not familiar00:25
ubottuclynamen if your not familiar: A Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa and !ppa-purge00:25
Ari-Yangclynamen: you can, but could be tricky00:25
Ari-Yangclynamen: like download the .deb of the ppa of a different ubuntu version and then install them00:26
Ari-Yangclynamen: or just find a PPA....00:26
litropyzykotick9, I imagine it does. But that doesn't tell me why00:26
zykotick9litropy: don't know what to tell you...  there should be some aptitude advanced search for what you want though... i certainly don't know it ;)  good luck.00:27
hitsujiTMO!dist-upgrade | litropy because there are depenency changes00:27
ubottulitropy because there are depenency changes: A dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.00:27

KlojumHi people, having a sudden error via GRUB2 here. FYI: laptop with 1TB HDD and triple boot: WinXP / Ubuntu 12.04 / OpenELEC Gotham. Things worked fine for a couple of weeks, now I get a "invalid magic number" when selecting OpenELEC, and it won't boot. Ubuntu still boots (as you can see). This is the partition list: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6471527/ .00:55
BeldarKlojum, Have you run sudo update-grub00:56
Klojumyep... one and only thing I did sofar, but to no avail.00:56
hitsujiTMOaaas: you might also want to ask in ##windows        that channel is more appropriate for that question00:57
BeldarKlojum, That has to be a gpt setup with that many partitions00:57

EighgaHello, I was wondering if I could pick the rooms brain about an issue I'm having with Ubuntu. I will go into detail here and try to be a thorough as possible.01:09
EighgaMy friends computer stopped working and asked if i knew of a way to get a couple files off the hard drive to fix it. I did a bit of "Googling" and came across an Ubuntu Community posting regarding Data Recovery (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery) from what I could tell, is that it's rather involved and I'm still a novice user.01:09
EighgaSomething else I noticed, When i first plugged the hard drive into my computer and was running windows 8, It showed up saying it was (not that it was needing formatting but the word escapes me). So I went and installed Ubuntu on my computer and Ubuntu doesnt actually recognize the hard drive, It notices every other Hard Drive i plug into it but this one.01:09

kkkkkkkhi all, i have pentium B960 processor and it is 64 bit capable, i have 2 gb ram, is it beneficial to use 64 bit ubuntu, instead of 32 bit, what performance gain i will get, if i switch from 32 bit to 64 bit02:15
kkkkkkkright now , i am using ubuntu 32 bit, 12.04 LTS02:16
veryhappyhttp://www.liberiangeek.net/2012/04/install-skype-in-ubuntu-12-04-precise-pangolin/ - but that was the 2nd page i tried out02:16
veryhappyit actually tells you the same the first page did02:16
a_l_g64 bit is for more then 4g of ram02:16
kkkkkkka_l_g: nothing more advantage for laptop users02:17
kkkkkkka_l_g: instead of RAM02:17
a_l_glol low end loptops02:17
kkkkkkki read somewhere that 32 bit can also address 64 GB of RAM , with the help of PAE02:18
Beldarveryhappy, Can you just run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade and pastebin all of it, always pastebin commands.02:18
zykotick9kkkkkkk: tbo, i consider 2gb kinda a small amount of RAM, to begin with.  SO, if you go 64bit, due to the overhead - you'll have even LESS, then if you stick to 32bit.  there are a couple of cases where you'd want 64bit, but mainly media-encoding and number crunching (if you're doing either of those, primarily, then go 64 else stick to 32 (unless you upgrade your ram)02:19
Beldarpae kernels allow more ram in 32 bit02:19
veryhappywhat do you mean "always pastebin commands"?02:19
veryhappyinclude the commands as well?02:19
veryhappyi just know how to make pastebinit write everything online02:19
Beldarveryhappy, Your first pastebin of errors shows no command leading to them.02:19
a_l_gsudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback and kill the 3d look of ubuntu02:20
kkkkkkki am asking about advantages of 64 bit processor and hardware, i don't need more RAM i am happy with 2 GB, as by default i use only 500 Mb of it, after opening firefox, chrome, etc, if i need to do some other work, i close one and work on another02:20
veryhappyah gotcha02:20
veryhappybut how?02:20
zykotick9kkkkkkk: media encoding & math/number crunching - those are the main two benefits (besides supporting more ram)02:20
Beldarveryhappy, run that command as a copy and paste to a terminal and copy and paste all of the text to a pastebin.02:21
kkkkkkkzykotick9: i do none of them :)02:21
kkkkkkkzykotick9: no simulations02:21
veryhappywell you want me to copy everything manually right_02:21
Beldarveryhappy, What ever works for you.02:22
a_l_gkkkk yes it will work but if your doing server to may need to use 32 bit02:22
kkkkkkkso, it is a safe idea to use 32 bit , for most of normal users02:22
Beldarveryhappy, You can copy and paste all of the terminal info in one full sweep.02:22
zykotick9kkkkkkk: there is that 2035 (or whatever) year issue... if your in high finance or something ;)02:22
a_l_g64 bit will work but it a little more work as a new user i would use 32 bit and call it a day02:23

PDilyardi installed 13.10 and my laptop won't wake from suspend. it worked on 12.0402:38
Lothsahnveryhappy:  You, of course, may need to install the tee utility.  However, it's very helpful if you want to both see output and send it to a file.  As for pastebinit, I'm not familiar with that.02:38
geekmasterflashHey, I have something of a strange issue I need some help with. For my work I need to set up a softphone. That I have done, but I am trying to set the program to use my headphones and not my speakers02:39
ubottupastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com02:39
geekmasterflashBut I can't find any way to get ubuntu to recognize my rear headphone's jack02:39
GrendelTit seems to be using the "radeon" driver... is that good or no? do i want to use the fglrx instead? Radeon HD 6310 chip02:39
geekmasterflashI can get it to work if I disconnect my my speakers and plug the headphones into the speaker jack02:39
veryhappyLothsahn: it is already installed :) btw: pastebinit just needs to be piped with "command | pastebinit"02:40
geekmasterflashBut that means I can't listen to music while working, which would be tragic02:40
Beldartool, Stop posting garbage and give some details.02:40
toolI did02:40
shin1hai hai02:40
veryhappytool: but then please write more than just "help"02:40
Lothsahnveryhappy: Ah.  In that case, tee will work for you.  You'll just have to redirect the output to tee first (which will copy to the console), and then pipe/redirect to pastebinit02:40
toolI did02:40
Beldartool, Name of OS and printer and share info would be a good start.02:41

GrendelTtool: help spam is not cool - patience02:45
geekmasterflashBeldar: I can get the headphone to work if I plug them into the speaker port, but that means I can't use my softphone and listen to music02:45

Beldarlike for a mic02:46
geekmasterflashBeldar: I am positive, as I have the mic portion of my headset plugged into the mic port and it works02:47
Beldargeekmasterflash, I would address this to the channel.02:47
jribLothsahn: I don't know.  Check if launchpad has such a functionality02:47
Lothsahnjrib: Thanks02:48
veryhappyLothsahn: anyway i didn't get the 2>&1 work for me02:48
jribLothsahn: if there isn't such functionality there (or you can't find it), try #ubuntu-bugs or the mailiing list02:48
Lothsahnveryhappy: 2>&1 just means redirect stdout and stderror02:48
geekmasterflashAlright, so the issue is this: I have set up a softphone on my machine for work. I like to listen to music while I work, so my goal is to have my sound from the softphone go to my headphones and mic and everything else my speakers. My headset is plugged into the rear headphone and mic jack. My mic is working, but in sound control I have no rear headphones option02:49
jribLothsahn: eh?02:49
Beldargeekmasterflash, no sign of it with alsamixer in the cli?02:49

geekmasterflashBeldar: Yeah, I see a headphone option in AlsMixer02:50
Lothsahnveryhappy:  So the syntax would be:  command 2>&1 | tee (filename) >> pastebinit02:50
Beldargeekmasterflash, is it off?02:50
aaasanyone using samba 4 or 4.1 in production?02:50
veryhappyLothsahn: i need a filename?02:50
Lothsahnveryhappy: That'd send it to pastebinit and a file.  I'm not sure how to send it to pastebinit as well as stdout, as there's only one stdout stream02:50
geekmasterflashBeldar: Good question. I see multi-colored bars which seems to suggest to me that it's not02:51
veryhappytool: stop writing help again and again02:51
Lothsahnveryhappy:  Well, yes--there's only one stdout stream, so unless pastebinit supported splitting the stream, I don't know of a way to send stdout to console and redirect it02:51

jimmy_bananasIve got a Toshiba Satellite X205-S9800 with the realtek alc268 soundcard configured for 2 channels in alsa. This laptop has 4 speakers and a subwoofer capable of 5.1 surround, however I am unable to successfully enable the pulseaudio settings to work as such. I am running (Ubuntu 13.10). I have done some suggested modification to the /etc/pulse/daemon.conf file with only confusing results.03:03

Lothsahnveryhappy:  I don't know of a way to redirect standard out to pastebinit and also have it go to stdout.  There may be a way--but I can't help with that.  But at least if you send it to a file, you could monitor that file with tail -f03:06

Lothsahngp5st: What specific error are you getting?03:08
Lothsahnveryhappy: I believe this would be your command to redirect to pastebinit and a file: "sudo apt-get update 2>&1 | tee test.txt"03:08
LothsahnDo check to see if pastebinit has a flag that can cause it also to output to stdout03:08
Lothsahnveryhappy: "sudo apt-get update 2>&1 | tee test.txt > pastebinit"03:08

LothsahnBuntufuntu: (mostly kidding)  That thing should be fine, depending on how much ram you have installed.  I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on a bunch of boxes with similar specs, but a slower processor.03:20
KnownSyntaxBuntuFuntu: It'll be slow with a lot of things open, assuming it only has 1GB RAM default.03:20
reisioBuntuFuntu: how much?03:20
veryhappyLothsahn: how can i printf a newline into a file? \n?03:21
BuntuFuntuWell it's running fine and yes it only has 1gb ram. And Reisio: I got mine for free(:03:21
LothsahnBuntuFuntu:  If you upped it to 2GB RAM your experience would be a lot better, but the machine I'm on right now really isn't all that much faster than that one--and I have about 50 deployed machines in production with smaller specs than that.03:21
KnownSyntaxI use that same netbook as a Ubuntu Server, although I'd highly recommend upgrade the RAM (although it's a pain with netbooks) as you will see the difference right away.03:21

BuntuFuntuDevice 'LGL35G' (E8:92:A4:12:BF:2F) wants access to the service '0000111f-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb03:26
Lothsahnreisio: superior or not, I don't expect to code an application for any mainstream linux and have dos2unix nonpresent!  It was rather annoying :)03:26
BuntuFuntuThat would be bluetooth, right?03:26
LothsahnBuntuFuntu: No idea.03:26
reisiothey should've made it a drop-in replacement (use same name)03:27
Lothsahnreisio: Agreed.03:27
Beldarpgrytdal-2, So when and where does the installer freeze on the 64 bit, and are there any errors?03:27
Lothsahnreisio: I mean, also, how much can you REALLY improve that package!  I mean...  regex replace \n with \r\n!03:27
Lothsahnreisio: </soapbox>03:27
reisioyeah I mean, really all the convenience is in the name03:28
reisioyou can do it with tr from coreutils, after all03:28
Lothsahnreisio: I saw a software vendor do it with a regex.03:28
Lothsahnreisio: and they screwed up their regex in shell.03:28
pgrytdal-2On the 64 bit, if I decide to encrypt my whole installation, it freezes after I put in my name, computer name, username, and password. If I do not do that option, it happens somewhere during "copying files"03:29
pgrytdal-2^ Beldar03:29
Lothsahnreisio: And they did it because they didn't select dos2unix when they compiled busybox.  I mean, you can't make this stuff up...03:29
reisiopoor silly embedded people03:29
BuntuFuntuLothsahn: It was Bluetooth03:30
Lothsahnreisio: I'm sure they saved like a full 100 bytes from the compiled binary.  Given their volumes of like 10,000 units/year, that was like...  a full $5?03:30
thejhawkWow, so apparently Ubuntu 13.10 and Windows don't play nice together share wise03:30
Beldarpgrytdal-2, I have never encrypted so that is a dead end for me. Any other info though like a custom computer build, if it had another OS and what it was, just variables that could be the root of the problems.03:30
thejhawkI love how samba just freaking breaks for no reason03:31
Beldarme too03:31
Lothsahnthejhawk: You mean samba?  Haven't had any problems.  Normally I find samba works better than windows file shares03:31
thejhawkI did too03:31
Lothsahnthejhawk: was an absolute PAIN to setup, though03:31
thejhawkEverything worked perfect03:31
geekmasterflashHmm, so I am not getting sound to my headphones, but it's mirrored what's being played on my speakers. Is there any way to have my front headphones be different outputs from my built in sound?03:31
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: That's very dependent on your soundcard.03:32
thejhawkI made three folders sharable I even put files in them from both PCs last night03:32
thejhawkworked great. Then I come back to my computer tonight and can't share anymore03:32
thejhawkauthentication error on Windows side and I can' access Windows shares on ubuntu side03:33
geekmasterflashLothsahn: Realtek ALC89203:33
Lothsahnthejhawk: Weird.  Check /var/log/samba and make sure it's running?03:33
evilbugok. scrapped unity and now back to xfce.03:33
thejhawkIf it wasn't running wouldn't I not be able to see them?03:33
reisioevilbug: :)03:33
geekmasterflashLothsahn: I am trying to have my front mic be sepearate outputs from my default so I can make phone calls and listen to music03:33
Beldarpgrytdal-2, Other helpful info might be the install media and how you are loading the ISO to it.03:33
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: I don't know anything about which card you have.  I'm just saying that some cards would support multiple output streams, and some do not.  I wouldn't normally expect an embedded chip like a realtek to do that.03:33
thejhawkI can see my PC on the Windows workgroup in Windows 703:33
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: but I have no experience with a Realtek ALC892.03:33
DoverMogp5st, okay03:34
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: I'm not even sure if Ubuntu supports that with multiple sound cards.  It might.  You could pick up a soundblaster audigy dirt cheap on ebay and play with that in addition to your realtek03:34
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: If you find it's impossible with the realtek03:34
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: ...Unless it's a laptop.03:34
geekmasterflashLothsahn: It's a desktop03:34
geekmasterflashLothsahn: According to Realtek, this built in can handle multiple outputs03:34
gp5stDoverMo: the mention of ubuntu there gets you kicked. happened to me before as well. I was hoping someone there might know something. I didn't spam the channel, and even acknowledged it was in contract to normal conduct and that I've tried other avenues first03:35
thejhawkI've already installed in the last day Ubuntu about 4 times so I am guessing this isn't for me03:35
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: So I doubt you can do what you're trying to do, but you might be able to.  I'm not sure how to set it up.03:35
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=92286003:35
DoverMogp5st, : P. that's freenode for us03:35
* thejhawk just doesn't have the time to spend days trying to find out why I can't do something as simple as share folders across a network. oh well =(03:35
geekmasterflashLothsahn: I can do it in windows, so I am positive it's not a hardware issue.03:35
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: that website talks about setup for multiple sounds cards in ubuntu.  if it's just showing one stream, I would suspect it's not possible.03:36
gp5stDoverMo: it's annoying. i know they don't want to get over run as an ubuntu support channel, but still. no way to build a community03:36
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: That means the hardware supports it, which is good.  Now the question is does the Linux driver support it03:36
BuntuFuntuthejhawk: Let me see what I can find out.03:36
thejhawkThe OS still looks nice though. Linux has come a long way from years ago03:36
DoverMogp5st, indeed. bad sentiments03:36
BuntuFuntuThejhawk: Linux is just the Kernel, not the OS(:03:36
thejhawkI give Ubuntu credit as far as linux finding drivers03:36
thejhawkI kno03:36
thejhawkI am speaking on Linux as a whole03:36
DoverMogp5st, anyways, the output from that command should tell you what you need to configure first03:36
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: If the linux driver doesn't show it as multiple outputs, it's probably not possible.  But you can buy one of these for $7 (including shipping) and have two soundcards: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Creative-Labs-Sound-Blaster-Audigy2-GOLD-PCI-Sound-Card-SB0060-Tested-Working-/321258355975?pt=US_Sound_Cards_Internal_&hash=item4acc7d7d0703:37
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: Just need a spare PCI port.03:37
Lothsahngeekmasterflash:  You might find that your easiest solution.03:37
geekmasterflashLothsahn: Which I don't have.03:37
thejhawkUbuntu looks fantastic though. Perhaps 5 or 6 years down the road you may see ubuntu machines that rival OS X and Win03:37
geekmasterflashLothsahn: I am running SLI03:37
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: You don't have $7?03:37
thejhawkThat would be fantastic03:37
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: Oh, a spare PCI port.  I wasn't talking PCI-X...  I meant the olstyle PCI port03:37
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: No room in the case?03:38
geekmasterflashLothsahn: My PCI ports are filled by 2 video cards and system blowers03:38
geekmasterflashLothsahn: To keep it from roasting alive03:38
themillgp5st: there is no part of that question that is debian related or even close to anything #debian can possibly help you with. Asking in ##windows would be just as likely to get you an answer.03:38
pgrytdal-2Beldar It *is* a custom computer. I received it from my church, after the Windows XP installation got a virus, so they replaced the entire computer(??). I know the CPU is an Asus P5K3 Deluxe. Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500.03:38
BuntuFuntuThejhawk: My school district replaced one of two Computer Labs at the high school with Ubuntu computers(:03:38
thejhawkThe whole "your computer can completely break at any point in time after doing nothing" thing I think is still a hangup.03:38
BuntuFuntuOS'S* Not computers03:38
thejhawkI mean not to those that have the time03:38
BuntuFuntuAnd I think it's Edubuntu :303:38
pgrytdal-2beldar The grpahics card (if it maters) is a Evga E-Geforce 8800GT03:39
ubottuEn la mayoría de los canales de Ubuntu, se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español entre al canal #ubuntu-es; escriba "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y presione intro.03:39
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: what about a USB headset?03:39
thejhawkBuntuFuntu: Good to hear. I hope they have knowledgable people working with them03:39
Lothsahngeekmasterflash:  This all assumes that you don't see two outputs in the pulseaudio configuration tool03:39
geekmasterflashLothsahn: Wouldn't that have the same problem? Or would the USB headset use it's own audio driver?03:39
thejhawkBuntuFuntu: Linux as a whole I think still requires people with a whooooooole lot of time to be able to troubleshoot.  I mean my opinion Doesn't mean I am right03:40
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: USB headsets usually have their own decoder--I *think*03:40
BuntuFuntuthejhawk: They do(:03:40
zzxcHey is there a ubuntu server channel?03:40
thejhawkBuntuFuntu: But I think distros like Ubuntu will get past that03:40
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: You should double check me on that.03:40

veryhappythere you go guys03:40
gp5stthemill: I don't really care to talk to you about this. I acknowledged that and as a last ditch someone there would know someone or something about procscp. I didn't spam the channel and honestly didn't expect much to come of it.03:40
pgrytdal-2beldar I used both a 2gb SD card (connected to a SD to USB converter thing), a 8gb SD card (same thing), and a 1tb external hard drive. I do not have an actual USB drive right now xP03:40
BuntuFuntuTHejhawk: the only problem I've had with ubuntu is my laptops touchpad stopped working yesterday but even that fixed itself XD03:40
DoverMothejhawk, helps if you brain can telepathically read machine language03:40
gp5stthemill:  But +q me, it's fine. w/e I'm not going to login to another box and rail against it or anything.  I don't care to squabble about someone's fiefdom03:40
BuntuFuntuThejhawk: After like 20 minutes of using a usb mouse. my laptops came back :303:41
Lothsahngeekmasterflash you could check out that one.  it's built to work with Linux, which would be a big plus in terms of messing around with drivers.03:41
thejhawkIt might!03:41
Beldarpgrytdal-2, To be honest I'm not sure I never have install problems, so I'm just going through possibilities which there are a lot of. How are you loading that ssd?03:41
themillgp5st: it's not about fiefdoms. Debian doesn't support upstart and Debian does support openvz. #ubuntu or ##linux might.03:41
geekmasterflashLothsahn: Hmm, that might be just what the doctor ordered, that or Realtek offering real linux support on their drivers.03:41
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: This is all non-ideal.  I mean, theoretically, ubuntu should work like windows and let you do what windows does.  But I don't know what options you ahve in the pulseaudio.  if the driver doesn't expose multiple output streams, you're hosed.03:41
thejhawkI love Linux and I think ubuntu is great, I just don't like being afraid everytime I open up my laptop praying to the OS gods that everything still works03:41
zeekSo I need help with pgadminIII. I already tried #pgadmin channel and I counld'nt find help there, can anyone point me to a better channel?03:42
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: Start by looking at pulseaudio's configuration and see if you only see one output device.  if you only see one, you're done. :(03:42
Beldarpgrytdal-2, You are doing the install to an internal HD?03:42
BuntuFuntuThejhawk: I've ran that risk almost this whole month.03:42
geekmasterflashLothsahn: a thought strikes me, can I duplicate the card in alsa and just have the second "card" have every channel but mic and headphone muted and do it that way?03:42
pgrytdal-2Beldar Yes03:42
thejhawkThat sucks too because samba was working great. the only hangup I had with my install was getting java to work with chromium and oidentd03:42
thejhawktwo things that I didn't care that much about03:42
BuntuFuntuThejhawk: I full installed Ubuntu, no fall back os's:D03:42
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: Possibly.  I'm not 100% clear on how the audio configuration works down to that level03:42
gp5stthemill: it is about fiefdoms and i know that, hence why i said so from the outset. I was hoping to find someone to point me someone where i could get help or help me outside of the channel. shooing people away for seeing if anyone knows anything that they could discuss out-of-band isn't anyway to run anything03:43
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: The mic isn't really the problem anyway--you don't care if the mic goes everywhere, you just want to capture it in skype or your telephone program or whatever03:43
themillgp5st: it's not. But good luck.03:43
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: The problem is the sound output03:43
thejhawkBuntuFuntu: Yea =( I wish I knew what made it break.03:43
gp5stthemill: in theory, this issue isn't about #ubuntu so why are you talking about it here?03:43
geekmasterflashLothsahn: True.03:43
thejhawkBuntuFuntu: I thnk it has something to do with libpam-smbpass03:43
thejhawkBuntuFuntu: Everytime I use the software center to install samba03:43
thejhawkit would hang on that03:43
geekmasterflashLothsahn: Here is something: When I look in alsamixer, I can see it has a headphone channel03:43
gp5stthemill: you're breaking your own philosophy just to make me upset and make sure i've learned my lesson03:44
thejhawklast time it hung I went into term and manually installed it via apt-get03:44
BuntuFuntuThejhawk: Hmm. did you google search it? Thats probably a stupid question lol03:44
thejhawkand it worked03:44
geekmasterflashLothsahn: It's just mirrored to the base output03:44
pgrytdal-2Beldar To create the live USB, I have used Unetbootin, usb-creator-gtk and the terminal method. (http://anl4u.com/blog/how-to-create-live-bootable-usb-via-terminal-in-linux/)03:44
thejhawkBuntuFuntu: Yea. can't find anything that seems usefull03:44
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: I can't guarantee that the card I linked will show up as a second soundcard, but I think it will.03:44
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: Ah.  yes, you do not want to mirror that03:44
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: If you could set it to non-mirrored and have two output sources, that's what you want03:44
thejhawkI installed Ubuntu, shared a folder and natuilus asks to install samba which I did03:44
thejhawkI noticed though it hung on libpam-smbpass03:45
geekmasterflashLothsahn: Indeed, I am just not sure I can03:45
thejhawkSo I went to terminal, apt-get installed and then my shares worked03:45
thejhawkfor a day03:45
thejhawknow they broke03:45
BuntuFuntuThejhawk: Hmm. PM me thejhawk.03:45
veryhappydid you guys see?03:45
Beldarpgrytdal-2, Do you have any dvd's, the ssd going through a usb converter could be a problem, one never knows.03:45

Lothsahngeekmasterflash: You using ubuntu?  Open sound in the control panel03:48
DoverMoHereticLocke, i would recommend lunar linux03:48
thejhawkI wonder if it's better to use apt-get instead of the software center03:48
gp5stHereticLocke: what's the error log say?03:48
thejhawkI mean I know the software center is just a GUI03:48
geekmasterflashLothsahn: Just "sound"?03:48

thejhawkAny samba gurus?03:49
eb0tmaybe turn off caps lock03:49
thejhawksorry about the any03:49
thejhawkI need a good seasoned samba guru03:49
Beldarpgrytdal-2, Thats about it for me I'm assuming your limited to this install media. If it were me I would look there IE a USB, and look on askubuntu in regards to to hardware and computer model if relevant for this release your trying.03:49
thejhawkI would be greatful for your assistance03:50
gp5steb0t: interesting, i didn't see that in all caps..i wonder if pidgeon auto-converts that?03:50

thejhawkzzxc: I had 3 folders shared on a network, everything worked. I could get into the folders and add/remove files. I could also do the same on my Win PCs03:51
HereticLockegp5st: Does that help?03:52
thejhawkzzxc: And now they broke and I don't know why. Authentication problems for both03:52
thejhawkzzxc: on the Win side Win 7 is asking for a pass03:52
zzxcBut it is getting the auth page?03:52
thejhawkzzxc: and Ubuntu is asking the same03:52
Beldarpgrytdal-2, Better help might be good, I am not a file checker for errors and there may be places to look in this freeze, I just don't know where03:52
thejhawkI get a diag, on Win 7 asking for a username and password.03:52
gp5stHereticLocke: well, it's more informative than "something about an so" :)03:52
pgrytdal-2Beldar Okay. Thank you anyway. At least you tried. =)03:53
Lothsahngeekmasterflash:  Do you see multiple devices under the output tab?03:53
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: Like I have analog output and digital output on my computer03:53
thejhawkzzxc: When the software center installed samba it hung on libpam-smbass (did not install it)03:53
thejhawkzzxc: I did so via apt-get and that made them work before03:53
thejhawkbut I don't know now03:54
geekmasterflashLothsahn: I see HDMI/Display 4, HDMI/Display, Digital Output (buildin) and Analog Output (built in)03:54
gp5stHereticLocke: from http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/error-while-loading-shared-libraries-libstdc-so-5-wrong-elf-class-elfclass64-723830/ does installing 'ia32-libs' help any?03:54
thejhawklibpam-smbpass was on there03:54
thejhawkis on there I mean03:54
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: That would indicate that it's not aware that your soundcard can output both03:54
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: But if you hooked your speakers up on digital and your headphones on analog, it might work03:54
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: Have to feed and tuck in baby.  Will be back in like 30 mins.03:54
thejhawkI've had this trouble before and that corrected it. But now seing as how its installed I don't know what the issue is03:54
apb1963Beldar that's the page I've been looking at... not able to get my scanner working properly... it prints... but xsane can't find it.03:55
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: if you don't have digital speakers, though, that's not going to work.  There may be another way to do it--but given that it only shows one analog output device I suspect it doesn't know your card can do them separately.03:55
zzxcthejhawk: Wait so what is the change. Are you under the new OS on windows/ did you reinstall samba/ or did it just break?03:55
thejhawkit just broke.03:55
geekmasterflashLothsahn: I have noticed something troubling03:55
geekmasterflashLothsahn: I normally use pavucontrol for sound03:55
thejhawkzzxc: to trouble shoot I removed/installed samba03:55
HereticLockegp5st: package not available03:55
thejhawkthat didn't work03:55
apb1963beldar: sane-find-scanner finds it, I followed the directions and put the ids in the conf file... no joy....  I'm sure I'm missing something obvious03:56
thejhawkzzxc: I removed/installed libpam-smbpass03:56
thejhawkthat didn't work either03:56
geekmasterflashLothsahn: In pavucontrol, I get the option to set my built in a analog output+input03:56
zzxcthejhawk: Did you do a remove or purge?03:56
geekmasterflashLothsahn: Bunt in this sound screen, it doesn't even mention my mic03:56
gp5stHereticLocke: even after doing an apt-get update? are you on a 64-bit machine?03:56
thejhawkshould I not have?03:56
zzxcNo that was the right option.03:56
geekmasterflashLothsahn: Or give the option to set input03:56
Beldarapb1963, Have you googled the scanner and your release?03:56
zzxcPurge removes all user files as well (supposely)03:57
thejhawkzzxc: I just wished it worked03:57
thejhawkzzxc: not sure what happend03:57
apb1963Beldar: I don't understand03:57
thejhawkzzxc: they were working earlier today. I03:57
xsi_Why zorinOS isn't supported here and I should fight with that offtopic? ZorinOS just uses the same ubuntu kernel, doesn't it? My tryings were crudely interrupted by "we are not abliged"?03:57
zzxcthejhawk: Yeah I'm trying to set up audio on server. I know what you mean. Sometimes its like beating your head against a wall.03:57
thejhawkI've been away from my PC a while and I did get a few ubuntu diag. telling me Ubuntu had a problem03:57
HereticLockegp5st: Yes I am. Still does not work03:57
apb1963Beldar: do you mean on the project sane page?  That page won't come up.03:57
Lothsahngeekmasterflash: not sure why that would be03:58
thejhawkzzxc: The only thing I think I can do is reinstall Ubuntu entirely03:58
zzxcthejhawk: with the samba share after you put in the user and password?03:58
Beldarapb1963, askubuntu is a good resource. Many time the hardware yhou using IE a scanner or computer or printer and the actual release like 13.04 brings up info, same at askubuntu.03:58
thejhawkzzxc: because I have no idea and no advance knowledge of samba03:58
zzxcthejhawk: I would hold off on that until you're completely out of options.03:58
zzxcthejhawk: ehh I've only used it about as much as you honestly.03:58
zzxcThough it was a different usecase.03:58
thejhawkzzxc: It asks for a user/pass and I give it one and still asks for one03:59
Beldarapb1963, if others are having a problem chances are its on the web,03:59
thejhawkI give it the user pass for my account03:59
gp5stHereticLocke: from http://askubuntu.com/a/179818 try 'sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libgcc1:i386 gcc-4.6-base:i386 libstdc++5:i386 libstdc++6:i386' what version of ubuntu. should have asked that sooner03:59
zzxcthejhawk: when you did the reinstall did you tell it which users to allow?03:59
thejhawkI do the same when Ubuntu asks me for a pass to open a windows share03:59
ubuntu_ashleyCan I restore files from a windows backup to ubuntu?03:59
HereticLockegp5st: This all started when I ran sudo MV /etc/X11/xorg.conf.back /etc/X11/xorg.conf04:00
Beldarubuntu_ashley, files of?04:00
ubuntu_ashleyI backed up everything in windows before installing but I can't figure out how to restore the backup04:00
geoffmccHereticLocke: if your using 13.10 use  apt-get install gcc-multilib04:00
thejhawkzzxc: About 30 min ago. And I have not beenin the config at all other than to change the workgroup04:00
HereticLockegp5st: Reverse that. xorg.conf first and then xorg.conf.bak04:00
zzxcHave you restarted your machine since?04:00
thejhawkI restarted the service04:00
thejhawkand the name service04:00
thejhawksmbd nmbd04:00
ubuntu_ashleyits a .VHD file04:00
HereticLockegeoffmcc: Already installed04:01

Beldarubuntu_ashley, This from a windows backup using its tools?04:01
gp5stHereticLocke: which version of ubuntu and can you install those packages? xorg.conf touches so much stuff, I won't be able to help you other than saying to switch it back04:01
zzxcHmmm: well its acting like it doesn't like the user info you're providing.04:02
gp5stHereticLocke: the libc6:i386 line, not ia32-libs04:02
HereticLockegp5st: 13.1004:02
Beldarubuntu_ashley, Not sure other than windows does not read the linux partitions without a driver and that is some old stuff.04:02

apb1963Beldar: Good idea... sadly, there is only 1 hit for my  12.04 Epson XP-310; and the question was about printing.  I have printing working... it's scanning that is a problem. The link they provide on that page leads to the Epson website... but the page isn't found.04:03
apb1963oops.  xp-30004:04
Beldarubuntu_ashley, If it's made with the windows backup utility, its to just reload through that utility, not open04:04

ubuntu_ashleythat just sucks04:05
Beldarapb1963, I have seen problems with combo printer and scanners, you migh try posting at askubuntu and the ubuntu forums if you get no answer here.04:05
gp5stHereticLocke: not sure then, you can try to remove and then reïnstall but they prob have tons of things depending on them. Someone else here might know how to force-install something04:05
Beldarubuntu_ashley, You might ask in ##widows they would know more on this I would think.04:06
apb1963Beldar: nvm... I found the epson page.  Thank you for your help!  Hopefully that driver will do the trick.  Time will tell.... very shortly :)04:06

birdsnacksany idea why a script will run fine from the command line (as ubuntu user) but not on crontab @reboot as the ubuntu user, i can't work it out, i've printed 'whoami' listed the dir, made sure the script goes into the right wd, etc, but i am getting permission denied on accessing the file the shell script (that cron fires) is running (http://dpaste.com/1481982/plain/ output showing the file is there and readable)04:09

ubuntu_ashleyis there a good book for beginners?04:11
DoverMoubuntu_ashley, hard to say. maybe check your plugins + extensions. You can do a clean install with "apt-get purge firefox && rm -rf ~/.mozilla && apt-get install firefox*04:11
zykotick9birdsnacks: if i where you, i'd check line 26 of /home/ubuntu/echo_server/echo_server.js <-what's that?!04:11
DoverMoubuntu_ashley, meant to put " not "*"04:12

birdsnackszykotick9: $(which nodemon) $@ ${BASE}/echo_server.js - all parts of this are correct upon printing individually04:12
DoverMoubuntu_ashley, it uninstalls, deletes local files, reinstalls04:12
BuntuFuntuUbuntu_Ashley, that command will fully delete firefox and then reinstall it.04:12

buuoh, um.06:35
buuAdblocker: This isn't exactly a subtle and exact solution, but try the command: chmod 777 <foldername>06:35
Adblockerthanks buu06:36
privacypleaserahuldroy: Thanks for the information, you are being deauthenticated, I think perhaps it is an issue with the encryption you are using06:36
privacypleaserahuldroy: Have you tried, for a test, to use a basic encryption like WEP and see if that atleast works?06:36
privacypleaserahuldroy: Not for a permanent change, but perhaps a configuration needs to be altered.06:37
Adblockerbuu: didn't work :/06:37
rahuldroyYepp, I have tried turning authentication off completely & also tried WEP with no luck06:37
buuAdblocker: A) what do you mean "didn't work"? Always tell us the exact error message. B) Before that, please paste the *single* line returned by ls -l <foldername> and tell me your username on that computer.06:38
privacypleaserahuldroy: Which ubuntu version are you working with currently, 13.10?06:38
rahuldroyUbuntu 12.04.3. The computer is getting its internet from my laptop (internet sharing)06:40
privacypleaserahuldroy: I see, that is often problematic :)06:40
Adblockerbuu: total 0 is the output. username is servu. the error is, "Error creating directory home/servu/hidden_service/: No such file or directory06:40
privacypleaserahuldroy: I had tons of issues with that in the past, WEP normally worked using that but not between different ubuntu version or with windows06:41
privacypleaserahuldroy: Are you at university or something?06:41

elementary-site4hi guys! can someone help me install elementary os plz :(06:44
privacypleaserahuldroy: My advice would be to avoid this approach altogether if possible, it is never stable it was a nightware with ICS for me06:44
buuelementary-site4: This is #ubuntu06:44
buuAlso its #ubuntu06:44
buuIt is a channel with some number of 'U's in the name06:45
buuUnlike the word 'elementary' which possesses zero 'U's06:45
elementary-site4I understand, but someone from the elementary site said ppl here would be willing to help,,,,06:45
balsaqi am installing a game thru terminal (ubuntu 12.04 LTS) and I found instructions online from a ubuntu member forum...it seemed to be going well...now i am stumped because terimnal is asking me "what direfctory do i want to install the game into"? i don not know the proper way to command terminal and respond?06:45
elementary-site4so is anyone willing to help?06:46
privacypleaserahuldroy: However, if you can you would likely need to upgrade your kernel, test different network manager versions, wpa_supplicant versions, everything06:46
rahuldroyI am only using ICS on my Desktop because of the wireless problem :(, once the wireless is fixed I won't have to do it06:46
balsaqi chose home  but terminal sais..."cant intall it to the same directory it is in"...06:46
SchrodingersScatbalsaq: /home/balsaq/game-name/ ?06:47
privacypleaserahuldroy: Ok great, so you are not doing ICS through the wireness then? it is through cabling? Perhaps I misunderstood06:47
rahuldroyhow would you upgrade those. I have tried sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade06:47
balsaqis that what i am supposed to type in terminal SchrodingersScat ?06:47
rahuldroyI am doing ICS from my laptop (wireless is working perfectly) to my desktop using Ethernet06:47
SchrodingersScatbalsaq: idk, but making a directory for it to be in might help06:47
balsaqso i have to make a directory06:48
balsaqhmmm, never did that06:48
privacypleaserahuldroy: Because the wireless is not working on the Desktop? Correct? and the desktop is 12.04 or 13.10?06:48
balsaqso how do i make a directory and then command terimanl to finish the installation?06:49
rahuldroyDesltop is Ubuntu 12.04.3 and Laptop is 13.10.06:49
balsaqit is right after i type    sudo ./install.sh                                   that the terminal asks me...what directory do i want it in06:49
elementary-site4I would really appreciate the help guys :(, it saying that I it has a problem installing the grub-efi package into target06:50
balsaqis a directory a file or was i supposed to have made a partiton for stuff like this when i did my install schmidtm ?06:51
SchrodingersScatbalsaq: idk what you are working with, if you had typed a directory that you had permission to make, it might have made it for you, it is a mystery06:51
buubalsaq: A directory is a ... folder.. it contains other things like directories and files06:52
buubalsaq: When it asks you for a place to install, try typing: ~/game06:52

gdoteofi used xmodmap to map capslock to ESC, which is wonderful and i don't know why it took me five years to do it06:57
gdoteofbut i am wondering if there is a way to map shift+capslock to capslock06:58
reisiogdoteof: :)06:58
gdoteofor something like that06:58
gdoteofsince like 2 times a year i actually want it06:58
wafflejockgdoteof: xbindkeys?06:58
reisiogdoteof: not tab?06:58
DarrylI would be using Ubuntu 13.10 server for Django because 12.04 does not work well on my old laptop server for some strange reason06:58
gdoteofreisio: not tab what?06:59
reisiogdoteof: ESC used to be where TAB is these days06:59
gdoteofi use tab all the time; i am happy to keep it the same06:59
DarrylI think i should give 12.04.3 a try before trying 13.10 :D06:59
ubottuYou can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.07:00
gdoteofreisio: am i missing a point of yours?07:00
reisioI don't think so, no07:00
elementary-site4can someone help me install grub?07:00
reisioelementary-site4: what's the trouble07:00
RomanceHello, i used another partition (ntfs) as my download default directory for firefox, but whenever i want to delete some of the files, it wont move to trash but delete it immediately, how do i fix it to move to trash first?07:00
wafflejockDarryl: honestly 13.10 has been better on my system07:01
privacypleaserahuldroy: Ok, if you had previous kernel versions work for you, then select a previous kernel at grub. Otherwise, the only option is an upgrade really that I can see would be useful07:01
reisioRomance: how're you deleting?07:01
wafflejockDarryl: I don't normally recommend going up to the cutting edge but in my case it's worked out pretty darn well.. using Kubuntu07:01
Romancereisio: right click, move to trash07:01
elementary-site4Reisio: I am attempting to install elementary os on my computer, but the installer says cannot install grub-efi package to target07:01
reisioRomance: mmm, well if it's another FS, it'd actually be copying the data to trash07:02
reisioRomance: you sure you want that?07:02
gdoteofokay i got xbindkeys; are you suggesting i basically bind something to a script that turns off my capslock->esc binding? or can i do smething else07:02
DarrylI will give 13.10 a try then. older version of Ubuntu gave kernel panic on long run on my old system :(07:02
privacypleaserahuldroy: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6472561/07:02
Romancereisio: of course, its my safe bet to restore something if i deleted wrong files07:02
reisioRomance: so this is... nautilus?07:03
Romancereisio: yes? ubuntu 12.04 gnome07:03
elementary-site4Would there be any way to install grub to a different partition?07:04
elementary-site4its an uefi problem i guess07:04
wafflejockgdoteof: sorry not sure I understand the issue entirely... xbindkeys will let you setup key bindings that don't ordinarily work through the key mapping settings but I'm not sure I understand your issue07:04
Romanceelementary-site4: grub is supposedly to be always in /dev/sda07:04
reisiowell, no grub can be installed to a partition07:05
elementary-site4It's trying to install it there, but I don't think it can :C07:05
reisioit's just ordinarily not07:05
gdoteofwafflejock: well i have 2 issues.  i used xmodmap to map Caps to escape; which works to hit escape but actually still turns caps on which is really annoying; and 2) if 1. wasn't an issue i would like to have some way to still turn on capslock07:05
gdoteofwafflejock: like, shift+capslock07:05
gdoteofor ctrl+capslock07:05
reisioRomance: that does sound like a bug, so despite being able to fix it yourself, you should probably first just see what upstream thinks about it07:05
reisioRomance: it may just be a pref, though :)07:06
gdoteofwafflejock: it appears xbindkeys is primarily a way to bind keys to commands; so i was wondering if it was being suggested that i write a command that can turn on and off capslock; then bind a key to that07:06
gdoteofor if there is some more direct way07:06
Romancereisio: i dont know, maybe i set fstab incorrectly, would it effect it?07:06
reisioRomance: no07:07
reisioit's a bug for a few reasons07:07
reisioit says "move" and does not move07:07
rahuldroythanks for that , ill try it out now07:07
reisioit also is a different behavior depending on FS07:07
reisiofor one it moves, for one it deletes07:07
reisionow they may have done it on purpose, but it's still a bug :p07:07
wafflejockgdoteof: I've used xbindkeys to setup key bindings for the keypad in kubuntu to run system commands... it may also help to remap keys but it sounds like that's what you're using xmodmap for already so not sure how it'll come into play tehre07:08
Romancereisio: is there somthing i can do to at least "view" the deleted files07:08
wafflejockgdoteof: as you said xbindkeys basically allows you to run some command when a key or key combo is hit though so it may still come in handy but not sure exactly how to apply it to your situation07:08
reisioRomance: that's involved, did you lose some important files?07:08
=== AndresSM_away is now known as AndresSM
Romancereisio: not really, just wanna try to find a way07:09
reisioRomance: well that's another matter :p07:09
reisioRomance: as to the original, do you see something about 'behavior' in the nautilus prefs?07:10
gdoteofokay; well maybe someone can help me understand why caps lock now maps to capslock and escape key07:10
RagBalI'm using Ubuntu 12.04 with Gnome 3 and on my secondary monitor I have this small area in the right where I can't mouse-click or scroll, any idea what could be causing this?07:10

reisioRomance: oh nevermind07:10
Romancereisio: what kind of behavior, oh but when i `ls` in the terminal, it highlights them green which mean they are all readable writeable and executable no matter what files are they07:12

elementary-site4I used usb creator07:35
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, In ubuntu?07:35
elementary-site4yes sir07:35
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, Did you remember to set the persistence?07:35
elementary-site4I'm not sure what that means07:36
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, in usb creator, this is an option that asks you to select how much space you want to reserve for persistence07:36
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, I had to set it manually myself, otherwise I would get the same problem you did on USB boot07:37

elementary-site4 gothmasterflash could this possibly be an ueif problem?07:39
munzgrendal_prime: i think so07:39

elementary-site4I saw that guide and was confused on how to install the grub07:47
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, The win8 tool they are showing tells you how07:48
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, Step Three: Chain Load Grub07:48
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, They are just dropping down menus07:48
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, Easy as windows, I guess.07:49
elementary-site4that doesnt install grub however07:49
elementary-site4only makes a menu for it07:49
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, I think you need to read it again07:49
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, the step one: Installation order is just telling you Windows first.07:50
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, And that when you install linux, be sure to make /boot partition to throw grub on07:50
elementary-site4yes I understand that07:51
elementary-site4which is why i said I not sure how to create partitions well07:51
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, The graphic interface is pretty good on that iso07:51
elementary-site4I usually use the install alongside windows 8 option07:51
elementary-site4and it does it for me07:51
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, Don't do that since you need to create a special partition07:51
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, Instead select the option to create your own partition07:52
elementary-site4Yes and then I should create an ext4 swap and boot partition correct?07:52
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, How much memory do you have?07:52
elementary-site4I can allocate more though07:53
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, Memory, not storage07:53
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, you probably don't need swap07:53
elementary-site4so only ext4 and boot?07:53
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, first I'd create /boot07:53
Jordan_Uelementary-site4: You don't need a separate /boot/.07:53
gothmasterflashJordan_U, He does if he wants to use the windows 8 OS loader07:54
elementary-site4so I can just make one partition for boot and select install?07:54
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, No, you'll also need /07:54
Jordan_Ugothmasterflash: Your statement doesn't make sense. Please explain what you mean.07:54
gothmasterflashJordan_U, If he wants to use grub boot loader, that's fine. However, he wants to avoid putting it on the MBR07:55
gothmasterflashJordan_U, So that win8's boot loader can be used07:55
Jovialmeaning there will be one partiotion for /boot and one for / (main dir) :)07:56
Jovialright ?07:56
gothmasterflashJovial, That's the idea.07:56
Jordan_Ugothmasterflash: 1: Grub's boot sector should go in the MBR, or nowhere (if needed, a more reliable method of using a file loaded by BCD can be used) 2: Installing grub's boot sector to a partition (still not recomended) does not require a separate /boot/ partition.07:57
kcjxangua: How do I find the key for the repo that's failing?07:57
elementary-site4  gothmasterflash ohh okay I understand now. However I have never created a parition for boot before. how many space should i allocate for it?07:57
Jordan_Uelementary-site4: Do not create a separate /boot/ partition.07:57
xangua(01:33:22) ubottu: kcj just add the standard ubuntu keys: Getting GPG errors after adding custom repositories? Find the GPG keyword for the repository (it's 437D05B5 for the standard ones) and run « sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com <key> » reading helps07:58
Jovialits a good practice to have a /boot partition - 300-500mb so if something go wrong you can boot somekind of recovery options in that partition :)07:58
kcjI have read it.07:58
Jovialatleast that's what they say in the books :)07:58
elementary-site4I must read these books. x307:59
kcj"Find the GPG keyword for the repository" the one that won't auth right?07:59
kcjxangua: ^07:59
elementary-site4wait jordan is saying to not create two seperate ones07:59
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, You may not want to create a /boot/ partition07:59
gothmasterflashelementary-site4, I think Jordan is correct.07:59
kcjI didn't come here to be patronised thanks.08:00
Jordan_Uelementary-site4: Also, going back to swap, do you want to be able to suspend to disk (hibernate)?08:00
elementary-site4 Jordan_U  yes that would be very helpful sir08:00
Jordan_Uelementary-site4: Then you need either a swap partition or a swap file, and it should be the same size as your available RAM or larger.08:01
gothmasterflashJordan_U,  0_008:01
gothmasterflashJordan_U, You want him to create 8 gigs of swap space?08:01
Jordan_Ugothmasterflash: If they want to be able to suspend to disk while all 8 GiB of their available RAM is in use (for more than cache), then they will need 8 GiB of swap space to hold that data.08:02
elementary-site4Jordan_U: So from what I understand I only need to create a 142 gb of ext4 / and then 8gb of swap?08:03

Jordan_Uelementary-site4: A 142 GiB root partition using ext4 and an 8 GiB swap partition makes sense, yes. Using 20 GiB for swap though is much more than needed, the only time you would need that is if you had programs allocating so much that they needed 28 GiB (highly unlikely, and would indicate something being very broken already), or if you needed to suspend to disk while programs were allocating 12 GiB, (still unlikely).08:08

shamskabraHello guys, it may sounds crazy, I had beet trying for 8 days 14-15 hours a day, setting up my computer for Ubuntu 12.04 with Nvidia GeForce 640 with CUDA for supporting GPU Cycle Rendering on Intel i7 machine. All the information I get on forum is so jumbled for newbie like me. I did try many times and succeeded but each time I try to improve following the instruction I messed up with the08:13
shamskabrawhole setup then start over. I don’t want anything just to run my Nvidia, CUDA , along with Blender 2.69 if any expert out there please help, now I have fresh installed Ubuntu.08:13
elementary-site4 Jordan_U when i boot the iso, and select install ubuntu, nothing comes up except a black screen08:13
elementary-site4I just finished reinstalling the os to make sure it wasnt corrupt also08:13
dissolvedownload YUMI and its so much easier for installing any OS08:14
ikoniashamskabra: I'd be checkoing a lot of things at a basic level first, such as does your card/the nvidia drivers you are using support enabling CUDA external processing, look at if blender is actually built to be able to take use of this, I'd check those two important facts before doing anything else08:14

BraggartHi peeps.09:33
BraggartAnyone know how to add an entry to LightDM to run a VNC client?09:33
RoryBraggart: Searching the Internet for "lightdm vnc client" yielded this http://seb.so/vnc-from-boot-without-logging-in-ubuntu-lubuntu-xubuntu-and-mint-lmde/09:34
BraggartNo, that's something else.09:34
BraggartThat's LightDM acting as a VNC server.09:35
RoryMy apologies09:35
BraggartI want to add an entry to LightDM, along side the user list, that executes a command basically.09:35
BraggartThe command being something to the tune of opening a full-screen VNC client.09:36
RoryBraggart: You could make a new user, and set the command as autorun for that users login09:36
RoryBraggart: Then when you log in as that user (you can set it without a password) it will start the VNC client09:36
babinlonstonHi all , I'm Using Ubuntu 12.04 and While access some webpage which was hosted in my VPS some time not opens and its shows some error as apache version and Ubuntu, I don't want to show that my server is using apache and Ubuntu as my operating system , how can i remove it ? Please Guide09:36
BraggartRight, right, I vaguely remember reading something like that before. But how can I make sure nothing else loads? The user is to be just a dummy for the command, and I don't want anything else to load at all.09:38
RoryBraggart: or look in /usr/share/xsessions to see how sessions are created, and copy one and modify it, then you won't have to make a new user09:38
RoryBraggart: Then you could have the fullscreen client instead of Unity, rather than on top of it09:38
nomikeDo you know if lighdm from saucy still has XDCMP support?09:39
Rorynomike: Not sure, but if it does it might solve Braggart's problem as well :P09:39
Braggartbabinlonston: Try the IRC channel for Apache.09:39
BraggartOh? What's XDCMP?09:39
Rorynomike [cc Braggart]: Take a look here, there's an entry you have to add to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf https://wiki.ubuntu.com/xdmcp09:40
RoryBraggart: You don't want to use XDCMP naked over the internet09:40
Braggartbabinlonston: Apache support channel: #httpd09:40
nomikeRory, I know that page, but the most recent info's I could find are for 11.10. No mention about any further ubuntu releases.09:41
babinlonstonBraggart: yes im there thanks mate09:41
Rorynomike: why don't you try enabling the option and see if it works ;)09:41
nomikegood point.09:41
BraggartRory: Nah, I just have a local VM that I want someone to be able to access on my PC and nothing else.09:41
Braggartnomike: Check the LightDM version and look it up and see if it supports XDCMP thing.09:42
RoryBraggart: up to you; sounds like you already have VNC all set up though so probably just go with that09:42
BraggartRory: Yes, that's why I'm not looking for a server. KVM VMs already broadcast VNC, I just want it to be accessible from the login screen.09:43
RoryBraggart: Right, so copy one of the entries in /usr/share/xsessions to /usr/share/xsessions/VNC.desktop and then modify it09:44
BraggartAye, be having a look at it now.09:44
RoryBraggart: Then you can log in to that session instead of Unity, on any user09:45
RoryBraggart: Although forgetting to set it back again, and accidentally logging into your VNC server will annoy you forever ;)09:45
RoryBraggart: Also, different users have different default sessions, so if you want to avoid the "make default or just for this sessions" dialogue you can make a new user called VNC or something09:46
BraggartCan I haz user with option only to login with vnc.desktop?09:47
tomboy64i am using lubuntu quantal on an armhf. is there an easy way to get icedtea/openjdk installed on that?09:47

tomboy64Braggart: didn't find one. only found openjdk-7 referenced - but couldn't figure out which09:48
tomboy64it isn't the "partner" repo09:48
BraggartThen there's probably an issue. I can't say any more, perhaps you should look it up.09:49
BraggartAn issue with getting OpenJDK on armhf.09:50
heverhello, where are the thinkpad keymappings stored? Suspend works but I want to set LockScreen myself ???09:50
tomboy64ahhh, thanks for the hint with the repo, finally dug it up on launchpad.09:50

BraggartRory: What exactly do I have to modify on vnc.desktop.09:52
BraggartRory: What exactly do I have to modify on vnc.desktop?09:52

reisioRomance: ffmpeg; why do you need to downgrade the quality and size?10:16
frdmncan someone help me with my kernel problems? my /boot/ partition was too small for the new kernel, I increased the partition but aptitude still has some problems: http://hastebin.com/pujihidosu10:17
Romancereisio: well life shit, i dont have that speed, beside i got this free vps 128mb ram, rtorrent files, and use grive (google drive) to upload/sync it to my google drive10:17
_root_I have problem with the NIC; I have 2 network interface and i have 2 IP one gatway and a subnetmask and this is my /etc/network/interfaces   http://paste.ubuntu.com/6473119/    ;;;; but in the bootstrap ubuntu waits 60sec and then says that can't read the network config file10:18
reisioRomance: so the bandwidth is the bottleneck?10:18
_root_and boot without it10:18
Romancereisio: not really, i have unlimited bandwidth but poor speed, just 1Mbps10:18
reisioRomance: so you want to reduce quality to make transfer time less?10:19
Romancereisio: exactly10:19
reisioRomance: what format is your stuff now?10:19
RoryRomance: I'd advise that it will take so long to convert the video on such a low-end machine, that the different might not be worth it10:19
RoryRomance: if it's one of those 128mb lowendbox openvz instances especially10:20
Romancereisio: err im not thinking it yet, i dont have torrent downloading atm10:20
RomanceRory: its from host1free10:20
RoryRomance: You could find a lower quality torrent10:20
reisiowell if you're talking about the kind of things I think you're talking about, they're going to tend to be more diligently transcoded than you could pull off without a lot of research10:21
RoryRomance: This page might help if you want to convert http://www.ubuntumanual.org/posts/327/converting-videos-in-ubuntu-using-ffmpeg-the-ultimate-free-video-converter10:21
reisiowhat you could do, though, is put a streaming media server on the box10:21
reisiolet the network do the work10:21
Roryyes Romance , people who encode and release videos over bittorrent, especially well-known release groups, tend to be VERY good at getting the best possible quality out of a given size10:21
Roryreisio: I doubt the box has the power to convert a 1 hour video in less than an hour, which would prevent streaming10:22
Romanceencoding time is not a concern, but 128mb ram is sufficient right to do the job?10:22
RoryRomance: yes but it will be very slow10:22
reisioyou don't need to convert it, just stream it10:22
reisioit becomes the problem of the network device and your media player's caching ability10:23
Roryreisio: The entire issue is he doesn't have the bandwidth to stream, so needs to convert to a smaller file, I thought?10:23
reisiono he just doesn't want to wait10:23
reisiothat is, he doesn't want to wait while it downloads from the remote server to his local box10:23
reisiostream it and there's no download of the whole file at once10:23
RoryRomance: Well, there's a few options for you been described so far. pick one and try it :)10:23
Romancehow about split the files? would it be a better idea10:23
reisioyou just buffer what you're about to watch10:23
reisioRomance: nope10:23
RoryRomance: That won't make a difference. 1+1=2, and 2=2, you still have to download the same amount10:24
Romanceoh right10:24

RomanceRory: no i prefer vps where i can run many things10:26
RoryRomance: or a higher-end VPS than a 128mb openvz instance10:26
RoryRomance: I have one of those, but I use it only for an IRC bouncer, I wouldn't encode video on it10:27

WhatElseRory, the iso was ok because the MD5 match. now I'll do a dump with dd from the usb stick and check md5.. it should match, right?10:48
=== root is now known as Guest99275
peterbinRory: fixed it, once you mentioned the splash screen, I went into the bios, apparently the boot order was disabled and the sata disk was being used for booting, weird, first time I've encountered this (old slash new comp). Once I corrected it, it now boots, thanks.10:50
WhatElsegothmasterflash, ok, I'll investigate. What is your card's manufacturer?10:50
gothmasterflashWhatElse, MSI10:50
Rorypeterbin: Glad you got it working, boot order is exactly what I was going to suggest :)10:51
RoryWhatElse: There's an option to check integrity from the liveUSB's boot menu10:52
WhatElsegothmasterflash, mine is Zotac10:52
WhatElseRory, ok, I'll try this10:52
gothmasterflashWhatElse, Can you give me the model number they sold it as?10:53
RoryWhatElse: You have to press a key when you see the purple boot menu with the keyboard icon at the bottom10:53
WhatElsegothmasterflash, yes, wait a sec10:55
WhatElsegothmasterflash, Zotac GTX550 Ti AMP: Edition 1GB 192 bit DDR5,    PN: 288-5N194-100-ZT           SN: xxxxxx10:57
ActionParsnipWhatElse: could edit the lightdm config file in root recovery mode so that autologin doesnt occur10:59
gothmasterflashWhatElse, Hmm, looks like that card is slightly overclocked by the manufacturer11:01
gothmasterflashWhatElse, Have you overclocked anything else on your system?11:01
gothmasterflashWhatElse, Like FSB or processor?11:01
WhatElsegothmasterflash, nothing11:01
WhatElseActionParsnip, it freezes also in recovery mode, so it's difficult to adjust the config file11:01
gothmasterflashWhatElse, On recovery mode, did it freeze when you went to low graphics mode or even before then?11:02
WhatElsegothmasterflash, what do you suggest? I won't damage my video card just because ubuntu doesn't work :/11:02
WhatElsegothmasterflash, before, it was booting and it crashed11:02
SimonJaimy config is in /etc/network/interfaces11:03
WhatElsegothmasterflash, it doesn't reached the recovery menu and freezed11:03
SimonJaidoesn't restarting network service update the netmask?11:03
gothmasterflashWhatElse, Well, if it's crashing before any graphics come in then it's probably not graphic card related.11:03
sandman13if I installed Ambiance theme in usr/share/themes would it affect the original theme?11:04
Rorysandman13: Ubuntu already comes with Ambiance theme11:04
Rorysandman13: It is the default theme11:04
WhatElsegothmasterflash, I thought was a graphic problem because, If i remove "quiet" from kernel params, and I'll try yo read the kernel error, there are some "nvidia" words in the dump11:04
gothmasterflashWhatElse, Have you tried removing nvidia drivers and installing noveau to see if it boots?11:05
sandman13Rory it's for xfce11:05
cfhowlettsandman13, radiance for xfce?11:06
sandman13cfhowlett: are you suggesting or wondering?11:07
cfhowlettsandman13, wondering?  so far as I know, radiance on xfce is a no-go.11:08
WhatElsegothmasterflash, I'm using noveau now, with nvidia driver things go worse11:08
gothmasterflashWhatElse, I see11:08
sandman13cfhowlett: thinking of giving ambiance a shot11:08
gothmasterflashWhatElse, But even with Noveau it still wont boot?11:10
WhatElsegothmasterflash, any idea? I'm in this situation from a lot of time now, this morning I get really fed up of spending half-hour every day to boot.. so I'm here :(11:10
WhatElseWhatElse, yes, this morning I tried a lot of times as usual, but it didn't start :/11:10

cfhowlettsander, radiance is a unity theme.  shoehorning it into the XFCE filesystem is unlikely to make it work, but I look forward to your report.11:16
WhatElseOk, Memtest86 has finished, everything was fine :/11:17
gothmasterflashWhatElse, Have you tried to reset the bios?11:18
WhatElsegothmasterflash, mainboard bios?11:18

sandman13cfhowlett: i'm confused is radiance and ambiance same or else?11:19
WhatElsegothmasterflash, Rory: no, I'll try11:19
Rorysandman13: They are different themes11:19
WhatElsebut do you mean from bios menu? Or in a more hard way?11:19
Rorysandman13: They were released together with ubuntu 10.04, Ambiance is a dark theme (default) and Radiance is light11:19
peterbincan anyone recommend a good app that can backup a whole system into an image file also taking into consideration I have an ubuntu server unstall with two hard drives being used with lvm, not sure whether that makes a difference.11:20
sandman13Rory: what does "sudo apt-get install light-themes" install Ambiance or Radiance or both?11:21
aeon-ltdpeterbin: clonezilla?, wait 2 hdd as one iso?11:23

nano_ubhave some issue with hdmi on a hp 4510s12:10
gothmasterflashnano_ub, What do you need?12:10
gothmasterflashnano_ub, can you be more specific?12:10
nano_ubproblem is, the hdmi is conencted to the tv, but dont get any picture on it12:11
StaticLNXis there any graphical ssh clients in ubuntu that are similar to securecrt in windows?12:11
gothmasterflashnano_ub, Okay, so that could be anything.12:11
nano_ubbut on the tv it says connected12:11
gothmasterflashnano_ub, At any point do you see a splash screen, like on boot?12:11
nano_uband i cant find the, dual mode settings12:11
nano_ubnothing :/12:12
gothmasterflashnano_ub, or is it always just blank?12:12
gothmasterflashnano_ub, Okay, do you have another monitor?12:12
nano_ubblack, and says no signal12:12
gothmasterflashnano_ub, At this point you can't be sure it's the monitor12:12
gothmasterflashnano_ub, It could be lack of drivers, bad cables, etc12:12
gothmasterflashnano_ub, If you have another monitor hook that up and boot12:13
gothmasterflashnano_ub, Do you get the same problem?12:13
nano_ubcables works tryd it,12:13
nano_ubmaybe dual mode something in xorg should be change, but i thought it was auto12:14
gothmasterflashnano_ub, xorg can12:14
gothmasterflashnano_ub, But your seeing a problem you can't address yet12:14
gothmasterflashnano_ub, Because without display you can't edit any xorg files12:14
gothmasterflashnano_ub, So we need to figure out if it's your monitor or something else.12:15
gothmasterflashnano_ub, The best way to do so is to go single monitor to the card12:15
gothmasterflashnano_ub, and see if you've got display12:15
nano_ubvga connector to a monitor works12:16
gothmasterflashnano_ub, How about THAT monitor?12:17
nano_ubhdmi to tv doesnt12:17
gothmasterflashnano_ub, even in single mode?12:17
Ben64use a ssh server so you can change settings with the hdmi connected?12:17
nano_ub ya12:17
gothmasterflashnano_ub, Okay, so now we know the issue the next set is going to be checking that you have video drivers installed on your card12:17
gothmasterflashnano_ub, on single monitor, boot into linux then give me an lspci and post the results to pastebin12:18
nano_ubdid a lcpci, and it says  VGA Compatible Controller : Intel corporation mobile 4  chipset Intergrated Graphic Controller12:24
gothmasterflashnano_ub, okay, now do lscpi -k12:24
gothmasterflashnano_ub, And tell me if it's got a kernel driver12:24

nano_ubthat 1 i connected samsung 235012:30
gothmasterflashnano_ub, I mean the one you want to use12:30
nano_ubOh that one i want to use is a samsung 32" lcd something12:30
gothmasterflashnano_ub, Get the exact mode number. if we need to make an xorg config we have to include h-sync and v-sync. The wrong information can cause damage.12:31
Ben64nano_ub: does the computer have hdmi out?12:31

leandrosansilvaHello to all. Is it possible to run a byobu (I'm using tmux backend) for some users at the system's boot?13:10
leandrosansilvaWhat I need is something like, before I login using user "abc", there's already a byobu session for this user13:11
Roryleandrosansilva: Do you mean to automatically log in multiple users, and start them some empty byobu/screen sessions13:11
Roryleandrosansilva: OK13:11
leandrosansilvaRory: excatly13:11
leandrosansilvaexactly :-)13:12
Roryleandrosansilva: Any commands in /etc/rc.local are executed on system boot13:12
Roryleandrosansilva: You could sudo -u username "command to start your preferred multiplexer"13:12
ActionPa1snipRory: leandrosansilva: above the 'exit 0' line :)13:13
Roryleandrosansilva: (one for each user) - if you wanted to make it one line you would do: for USER in `cat /path/to/list/of/users` ; do sudo -u $USER byobu; done13:13
ActionPa1snipRory: no need for sudo in rc.local, they are ran as root already13:14
RoryActionPa1snip: sudo -u user13:14
ActionPa1snipRory: oh sorry, misread13:14
leandrosansilva ok, I'll try that. I've looked at tmux manual and there's nothing about that. For screen I know you can use -d -m -S  options, which have that porpuse (to be ran in background)13:14
Roryleandrosansilva: I don't think you need to put that in rc.local because it's all background anyway13:14
RoryI'd like someone else to check my idea is sensible though, and will work13:15

zatrickyHey all13:22
nano_ubuhello :)13:22
[Gentoo]nano_ubu: there isnt one13:22
theadminkiwiii: Ancient releases are not supported. Use the latest LTS release if you want a stable system you can use for a reasonably long time (5 years since release date, to be precise, and then upgrade), or simply the latest version if you want to see new features (but you'll have to upgrade every 6 months or so)13:22
theadminnano_ubu: To reset to default, simply remove the xorg.conf13:22
zatrickyI've noticed on some of our servers when I log on I get the message "0 packages can be updated.\n0 updates are security updates." which is correct - but I get the message 5 times in a row prior to the first bash prompt being available. Is this a known issue?13:22

JEHorn86Hey everyone, I just installed Ubuntu 13.10 over an older install (complete wipe) and after a system update GDM went black13:29
gothmasterflashkiwiii, It's not that we are telling you that you can't run ubuntu if you like... just that it's going to be impossible to support.13:29
Rorykiwiii: Did you accidentally download the 64-bit version?13:29
kiwiiirory what is the use without repositories13:29
JEHorn86Ive never had GDM do that before on this PC13:29
nano_ubuonly the main display, no tb13:29
kiwiiiRory: i downloaded 10.10 32bit13:29
cecilialol someone with gentoo as nickname visiting an ubuntu chat13:29
gothmasterflashkiwiii, I generally find BSD and Gentoo to be good for old hardware13:29
kiwiiibefore I downloaded 12.064bit yes13:29
Rorycecilia: Visiting? [Gentoo] is very much a regular here13:30
JEHorn86So I'm trying to figure out how to fix this without going back to 12.0413:30
kiwiiigothmasterflash:my pc is pentium 4, 2800 with ht, it aint slow :<13:30
RoryJEHorn86: Can you try booting from an older kernel by selecting a lower-numbered version from the Grub boot menu, and see if the problem persists?13:30
gothmasterflashJEHorn86, did you do a sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm13:30
tavarishJEHorn86, I had the same issue, and I do some "/etc/init.d/lightdm restart" and some reboots13:31
tavarishit fixed it13:31
G[zero]Dgothmasterflash,  no way13:31
nano_ubugothmasterflash,  still nothing ^^13:31
JEHorn86I logged in after the initial install and the updater came up so I ran it. After I rebooted that's when it occured. so no, I never ran dpkg directly.13:31
ActionPa1snipkiwiii: all OSes eventually die, XP is dead on 1st April next year13:31
RoryJEHorn86: By the way do you actually mean GDM proper, or lightdm which is the default Dm now13:31
gothmasterflashG[zero]D, No way?13:32
JEHorn86oh sorry, yeah lightgm13:32
ceciliaRory: well sounds even much funnier then :D13:32
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, Still nothing? Have have you done?13:32
JEHorn86sorry lightdm13:32
JEHorn86Sorry I've used Debian so long that I'm used to saying GDM or GDM313:32
RoryJEHorn86: You could try switching to another console (Ctrl Alt F1) and running sudo service lightdm restart, see what you see13:33
kiwiiiRory: if i download the 32bit version of 12.04 will it work on my Pentium 4 CPU?13:33

nano_ubugothmasterflash,  i upgraded everything, but there is no xorg file for me to check, so i cant do so much more13:35
nano_ububut i have a log tho from xorg13:35
[Gentoo]nano_ubu: what are you tryiing to do13:35
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, are you booted into graphics?13:36
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, I could be as simple as going to settings, Displays, and turning the monitor on13:36
G[zero]Dgothmasterflash, I unable to connect the server to internet through ssh resevse tunneling13:36
nano_ubuya but no settings there13:36
nano_ubuonly main display13:36
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, Well, you can try defining the second monitor in /etc/X11/xorg.conf13:37
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, But lots of warnings....13:37
nano_ubu[Gentoo], im trying to use hdmi on my laptop to the tv, but no picture13:37
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, You'll want to be comfortable with the command line in case it breaks13:37
[Gentoo]nano_ubu: ah ok no idea13:38
[Gentoo]im still on a vga lol13:38
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, and you'll have to get the right h-sync and v-sync for your monitor13:38
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, Or you can break it13:38
Rorygothmasterflash: I doubt that actually, the monitor probably just won't display it, it's not like the bad old days. HDMI is cleverer than VGA to a CRT13:38
Rory_KaszpiR_: Hello13:39
gothmasterflashRory, Probably right, but I remember breaking monitors myself. Now I never take the chance.13:39
_KaszpiR_got problem with AMD/ATI 8730M with installed latest AMD beta driver13:39
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, Okay, so you'll need to write an xorg.conf13:39
_KaszpiR_this is error when running gnome-session13:39
_KaszpiR_now I'm sitting on xfce413:39
_KaszpiR_trying to solve this13:40
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, if you booted up to a blank screen, would you know how to get to command line and erase it?13:40
[Gentoo]xorg --configure will give you a load of bloat but you can use it as a template13:40
_KaszpiR_the laptop I have uses integrated intel video card and also has discrete mobile card from amd13:40

meh33heya guys, is there a difference between java jdk for ubuntu desktop or ubuntu server?13:41
[Gentoo]meh33: why wouild there be13:42
[Gentoo]same package13:42
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, Right, we need to define the monitor in xorg13:42
meh33[Gentoo], im just trying to make sure, following a guide for ubuntu desktop to install java jdk from source13:42
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, xorg --configure will give you a template to work with13:42
[Gentoo]meh33: they will all be the same thing13:43
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, Once you have that, we can add another monitor section to it and define your HDMI display13:43
[Gentoo]meh33: on a server you might want to look out for deps13:43
[Gentoo]but thats it13:43

nano_ubu[Gentoo],  only 720p on the tv so13:49

nano_ubui did command not found'13:49
RepoxRory: I'm not where I can see the mail headers - I'm not recieving the mails myself.13:49
RoryRepox: They're being sent from your server; what MTA are you using?13:50
ChaosZenEarlier I tried to chmod via terminal and even typing exactly like the ubuntu site explained to use chmod, it would display the syntax and say --help for details.13:50
paolocd mp313:50
RoryChaosZen: Sounds like you made a typo13:50
RepoxRory: I'm unsure, but I belieive it's Postfix?13:50
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, how about sudo X -configure13:51
nashantI've got synergy running to share my mouse/keyboard with my xbmc server but it takes focus from XBMC when I leave that screen, which causes screen tear, so I wanted to run a cron job to use wmctrl to bring the XBMC window to the front13:51
ChaosZenThen I started Bluefish using sudo bluefish from term to work around. Then chmod exactly the same way and this time it worked.13:51
nano_ubuim in su13:51
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, Okay, then don't use the sudo part13:51
gothmasterflashnano_ubu, just the X -configure13:51

gothmasterflashgarshasp, When does it freeze? At boot? After an hour?15:21
garshaspit freezes after boot15:21
Richhhany idea why i cannot sudo ./configure15:21
gothmasterflashgarshasp, So, you can log in and it freezes15:22
ikoniaRichhh: you shouldn't be doing "sudo ./configure"15:22
garshaspthats correct15:22
gothmasterflashgarshasp, Are you overclocking anything?15:22
Richhhi cant ./configure either15:22

garshaspsomething to do with compiz?15:24
ikoniaRichhh: you don't use sudo to do that15:24
chicognuhitsujiTMO: look what i think it is happining i use luks to protect / and leave boot with out encrypt. I think my kernel is no reconize /dev/sda2 as a encrypted file system, because of this it don't prompt me for a password. what do you think ?15:25
gothmasterflashgarshasp, Maybe. what graphics card are you using?15:25
MonkeyDustgarshasp  try a different DE, to know if it still freezes15:26
garshasphang on consulting the brochure15:26
hitsujiTMOchicognu: it is set to load the the / from a wrapper, but what worries me is the entries for a 3.2 and 3.8 kernel. as if there was already a kernel and grub present on the pendrive before you tried to install and never formatted it15:27
hitsujiTMOchicognu: s/wrapper/mapper15:27
gothmasterflashgarshasp, For an issue like that my troubleshooting would be -use a different DE, if that fails find a different video card driver, if that fails, check your hardware with an other OS, if it's fine in another OS, try resetting bios15:27
QuesthitsujiTMO,  my packages are gone15:28
garshaspgothmasterflash, i have to use this version basically15:28
garshaspi dont even know what a de is15:28
gothmasterflashgarshasp, Why?15:28
gothmasterflashgarshasp, Desktop Enviroment15:28
gothmasterflashgarshasp, So if you are using unity, try Gnome or KDE15:28
garshaspwould that be under settings?15:28
chicognuin fact i don't format it before install but thouse kernels arent the default ?15:28
chicognuin fact i don't format it before install but thouse kernels arent the default anywhay hitsujiTMO15:29
gothmasterflashgarshasp, That would be under "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop"15:29
hitsujiTMOquest: i suggest a reinstall. I asked you for some info a while ago, and asked you not to delete that file. however since you insist on not doing what i ask, then I cannot help you further on this issue15:29
QuesthitsujiTMO,  it was an accident15:29
garshaspgothmasterflash, have you found that gnome de works better for these issues?15:30
gothmasterflashgarshasp, It's my go to, but I am strange15:30
gothmasterflashgarshasp, Most people hate gnome15:30
QuestI have deleted some apt/cache/linux-image 4334 sometihing 64.deb and my packages are gone. is there a way to fix it?15:30
JoshStroblI don't hate Gnome, I just don't agree with their direction.15:31
gothmasterflashgarshasp, but the point isn't which DE is better, just as a test to see if your issue is something related to Unity or not15:31
JoshStroblAnd the fact they ballsed up Nautilus.15:31
hitsujiTMOchicognu: it generated the grub.cfg based on info of other things present in /boot so the initramfs or anything could be completely misconfigure. i suggest a reinstall but make sure you format /boot this time15:31
garshaspgothmasterflash, whats your prediction based on past reports?15:31
gothmasterflashgarshasp, My prediction is that you're going to end up resetting bios15:32
garshaspgothmasterflash, is that difficult?15:32
gothmasterflashgarshasp, but you'll want to take every option first15:32
gothmasterflashgarshasp, Depends on your computer and if they used UEFI15:32

gothmasterflashgarshasp, Yes.15:34
garshaspgothmasterflash,  :(15:34
chicognuhitsujiTMO: ok, i will do that but i need to know if my proceed has correct. I boot using livecd, creat swap and / on the hdd, format / with luks, creat a ect.4 fs on it, open the luks and map it to /dev/mapper/something and install / in /dev/map/something and boot on my pendrive (without format.) If i redo it again, formating /boot things will work just fine ?15:35

Questgenii,  I understand but I reinstalling is the last resort for me16:11
tgm4883Quest, no, you don't16:11
ikoniaQuest: blindly typing commands is not a better option16:11
napscthere comes  a point where *ignore* is the appropriate response... just saying....16:12
JoshStrobl@YouDontKnowMe Do you mind rebooting the system and seeing if you have any options for other Linux kernel versions?16:12
Questif its fixable, I need to fix16:12
JoshStroblIt may be an issue with a specific kernel version.16:12
ikoniaQuest: typing commands blind is not a fix16:12
JoshStroblThough doubtful.16:12
ikoniaQuest: I'm giving you a proper solution for now AND for the long temr16:12
ikoniaterm even16:12
YouDontKnowMeIt may be that I havent restarted since the first time i installed ubuntu16:12
JoshStrobl@Quest It is NOT fixable.16:12
JoshStroblYour FIX is to REINSTALL.16:13
YouDontKnowMeI ran updates on meh system I thinks16:13
JoshStroblYea, I'd suggest rebooting and seeing if there is an option in your GRUB boot menu to switch to a different kernel version :)16:13
JoshStroblHopefully there is and it'll resolve the issue!16:13
YouDontKnowMeJoshStrobl: you talking to me?16:13
YouDontKnowMeokay yeah ill try that16:14
YouDontKnowMeThankyou so much you are hella help16:14
JoshStrobl@YouDontKnowMe Don't thank me unless it works.16:14
Questikonia,  ok.. what solution?16:14
JoshStrobl@Quest Re-install. Re-install. Re-install. (chants like Ballmer)16:14
JoshStroblObviously make sure your stuff is backed up.16:15
Quest reinstall16:15
Questreinstall: command not found16:15
ikoniaQuest: backup your data and configs, pick an ubuntu version that has the package versions you want in the core repos, install the new version, replace your backup date16:15

ubottuKaffien: zRAM is a module of the Linux kernel which increases performance by avoiding paging on disk and instead uses a compressed block device in RAM, useful on systems with less RAM, and SSDs.  Install zram-config to enable zRAM.16:15

kkkkkkkhi all, i am using ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS and i am having a weird problem, my USB 3g wireless modem gets detected automatically, after a minute, and connects, but the problem is that sometimes when connection  dialing fails (due to server load or whatever ), it gets disappeared from the list, network menu>MObile broadband gets disappear from the list and i had to re insert modem again and wait for a minute to get it detected and try dialing again. why this is happ16:22
Rorythai-2012: I personally prefer the Webupd8 themes PPA https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/themes16:22

thai-2012hitsujiTMO Thank you. but where is themes directory?16:22
RoryhitsujiTMO: it is a hidden directory (starts with a dot) in your home directory16:23
Rorythai-2012: ^16:23
hitsujiTMOthai-2012: ahh wait that's a metacity theme. thats not gonna work on unity16:23
JoshStrobl@thai ~/ is your home directory, so it'd be /home/yourname. .theme is a hidden directory.16:23
YouDontKnowMeJoshStrobl: This is still giving me trouble16:23
JoshStrobl@YouDontKnowMe When you rebooted, did it give you other Linux kernel versions to pick from?16:23
YouDontKnowMeFor some reason, its switching between my mouse cursor, and text on the screen when i try to boot.16:24
YouDontKnowMeHow do I check/downgrade kernel versions?16:24
kkkkkkki need to solve that problem, because in windows, when connection to internet fails, i can just retry untill i get connected, how to acheive the same in linux, it is weird to reinsert modem again and wait more than a minute for redialing16:25
JoshStrobl@YouDontKnowMe Let's try and see if it is a dependency issue. Boot it into shell (try CTRL + ALT + F1, sometimes that works).16:26
kkkkkkksometimes due to server load, dialing fails and i need to redial, but i can dial only once in linux, if it fails, it gets out of the list16:26
tavarishkkkkkkk, how do you do your insertion ?16:26
JoshStrobl@YouDontKnowMe Then try: sudo apt-get update (it'll update your apt cache)16:26
YouDontKnowMeI've tried to boot into shell (by using f2 instead of f1) and it gives me a chance to login but then it switches back to the mouse and text16:27
YouDontKnowMebrb im going to try to update16:27
kkkkkkktavarish: it is a USB modem, i just insert it in USB  port, wait for some time to initilize, click on the connection name MObile broadband, it gets connected. that's it. but when dialing fails, mobile broadband gets disappeared from the list , just like modem is being discarded and i need to re-insert the modem again in USB port16:28

Siyado I create it or should I add the lines to a different file?16:31
tavarishit won't help you, because it's a useless information to solve your problem, but a usefull one to explain why it will be difficult to solve it16:31
zykotick9Siya: you can just "sudo mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d" then create your file there16:32
zykotick9Siya: the alternative is to use xorg.conf but that's quasi-deprecated at this point16:32
JoshStroblIt's best to have it in xorg.conf.d/ anyways, since that is all user-defined and you don't risk messing with xorg.conf16:33

JoshStrobl@NotAGuest: Not entirely sure what the issue is then. It could possibly be a driver issue, since it doesn't seem to be a kernel issue (since you had no prior Linux kernel), nor a Chrome issue, or a dependency issue.16:37

thai-2012i want ask again. Now i download tar Gz archive. I must unpack it and then put to themes folder? Or no16:39
JoshStrobl@daftykins Not a kernel issue or broken deps it seems. Maybe an issue with an open source driver?16:39

JoshStroblAnd you didn't tell me?16:41
JoshStroblle sigh16:41
NotAGuestWell, I mean I did it like 2 weeks ago16:41
NotAGuestWhen I reinstalled ubuntu on my system16:41
zykotick9NotAGuest: use a console to log in (ctrl+alt+f1), then "ls -al .Xauthority" who owns that file? [fyi alt+f7 to return to where gui, is suppose to be]16:41
thai-2012i unzip theme to themes folder. but there is nothing. maybe i download wrong theme... oh.16:41

hitsujiTMOFourFire: yes its the sdX is the old drive . bs is blocksize. its just a buffer size of the amount of data it reads before writing to the destination19:44
FourFireyou know I just recently noticed that my clickpad works!19:45
hggdhFourFire: blocksize. You can also state it by 'bs=10M', for example19:45
FourFireit's amazing, I no longer Need an external mouse in order to use my operating system19:45
Roryezra-s: FourFire the bs argument to dd just specifies how much data is copied at once19:45
RoryTo all intents and purposes it doesn't matter what you put19:45
ezra-sRory, so it was about dd, sorry about my intrusion, thanks for the explanation :)19:46
hitsujiTMOFourFire: and ofc, sdX should not be mounted as you're performing the image19:46
xanguaPDilyard: I doubt you installed something from that repository so you can just remove it in Sotware Center>Edit>Sources19:46
FourFirethe BS should for optimal performance fit within my drives cache19:46
FourFireis that correct?19:46
PDilyardxangua: thank you!19:47
Roryezra-s: hitsujiTMO explained it while my incredibly slow Internet was sending my message19:48
hitsujiTMOFourFire: as rory said it doesnt really matter about the size of the bs. you can omit it and it will do just fine. the only time you really need to specify it is when dealing with SSDs or you're attempting to copy a specific amount of info or from a specific location19:48
hggdhFourFire: no, not necessarily correct. Usually, if a device is known to be faster is writing with a specific blocksize, google will show in a search19:49
FourFirehitsujiTMO: thanks for telling me, I might have imaged while it was mounted19:49
Roryexactly FourFire for example to make a gigabyte of zeroes you do "dd if=/dev/zero of=zero.bin bs=1M count=1024"19:49
hggdhFourFire: this is important: *never* 'dd' with output to a mounted filesystem. Corruption is almost certain19:50
reisioto the same FS you mean?19:50
hggdh(meaning output to the /dev/<device>)19:50
Roryreisio: don't dd to /dev/sda2 while a filesystem on /dev/sda2 is mounted.19:51

hitsujiTMOFourFire: can you pastebin: ls -la /mnt/home/[user]21:21

hitsujiTMOFourFire: i wonder did you have an encrypted home folder too21:22
Jordan_UGuest63672: When you insert a CD into this system while running Ubuntu, the CD should mount automatically and be avaialble in Nautilus. If it doesn't, then check dmesg for error messages which might confirm that you have a hardware problem.21:22

I want to install developers version of xubuntu 14.04 and I found the ISO with "trusty-desktop-i386" which should be developers version of xubuntu 14.04 but after installation it looks like ubuntu 13.04 - salamander... It should be like that, or I have to install developers version from some other ISO?22:02
NeoIDgeirha, possible to remove the U somehow? I've rebooted the server multiple times, so the file should not be in use22:02
geirhaNeoID: chattr -u22:02
IlmenBeldar: I'm not sure to understand the question; my internal hdd has windows 8, and I have an image of ububtu on an external hdd22:02
NeoIDit's just an mp3-file.. but strange is that the file system suddently thinks it's a directory22:02
BeldarIlmen, An image being a ISO or full install?22:03
jiffe99hmm, tried dvd and sd card, won't boot the ubuntu install from either22:03
NeoIDgeirha, that didn't doo much... no erros, but still: -u-D--d-c----e- 13. Taishou.a - Higurashi.mp3/ads22:03
BeldarIlmen, A HD not a usb Flash?22:03
IlmenBeldar: Iso converted to liveUSB with Rufus22:03
hitsujiTMOchalcedony: do you get a reply when pinging ubuntu.com or paste.ubuntu.com?         ping ubuntu.com                  ping paste.ubuntu.com22:03
zykotick9jiffe99: when you created the sd card, what did you use?22:04
jiffe99zykotick9: unetbootin22:04
zykotick9jiffe99: ok.22:04
chalcedonyhitsujiTMO, let me try from his box22:04
BeldarIlmen, On a HD not a flash usb, in gneral we see this method fail often is all.22:04
zzxcWiGust: Thats cool I know a bit a Russian22:04
geekmasterflashNeoID, Are you using some kind of Active Directory/Samba?22:04
NeoIDgeekmasterflash, I'm using samba22:05
Ilmenwell, the ubuntu is on a flash usb actually; but the computer of my brother (windows 7) does detect it22:05
chalcedonyhitsujiTMO,  8 received, 0% packet loss, time 7004ms22:05
chalcedony - to paste.ubuntu.com via ssh22:05
geekmasterflashNeoID, Anyone currently listening to music?22:05
NeoIDgeekmasterflash, nope22:05
NeoIDI've killed smbd and I'm the only user on the system :/22:06
geirhaNeoID: Hm. What about  chattr -uDdc  ?22:06
iridethelongbusIm working on asettting up a hp envy 4500 for my boss and i  followed this guide and my printer is not being detected by the GUI hp setup.  http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/manual/hp_setup.html22:06
NeoIDgeirha, no output22:06
BeldarIlmen, Not sure on a W8 setup I always use a per-session boot myself never the bios. However my "assumption" is that the bios would show it for a per-session to work22:07
hitsujiTMOchalcedony Beldar ahh its not piping to pastebinit because its failing at apt-get update and your using the guard operator &&.22:07
homeWhat is compiz and why is it prone to failure?22:08
IlmenBeldar: Windows 8 itself does detect the flash usb but not the bios22:08
hitsujiTMOchalcedony: try: sudo apt-get update | pastebinit22:08
geekmasterflashNeoID, anything if you try lsof?22:08
=== home is now known as Mongo44
NeoIDgeekmasterflash, nope, no output22:08
zykotick9home: compiz is the 3d/eyecandy window manager, that makes unity possible...  it's always had stability issues...22:09
geekmasterflashNeoID, how about strace rm -f (filename)?22:09
Mongo44Any fixes?22:09
NeoIDgeekmasterflash, http://pastebin.com/ZSe41WCx22:10
=== KindOne- is now known as KindOne
BeldarhitsujiTMO, I wondered about that mine worked but only the last what's available, however all I ever wanted was a updat upgrade to a pastebin, the user could not access the software sources to begin with this is at the least an hour into a simple fact finding effort, rather disconcerting in the end.22:10
geirhaNeoID: Hm. the u flag causes it to be undeletable, but why you can't remove that flag, I'm not sure. I don't use extended attributes much. Maybe the parent directory has some attributes too?22:11
Mongo44How many OS'es can be run on one computer?22:11
BeldarhitsujiTMO, Help them please. ;)22:11
NeoIDgeirha, I've tried to change that flag on every parent dir, but no changes are working22:11
buuMongo44: 88.322:11
geniiMongo44: As many as you have space for22:11
NeoIDseems like the file is just a shadow/damaged22:11
zzxc__WiGust: Hey So I read though it.22:11
geirhaNeoID: What does lsattr on the parent dir say?22:12
hitsujiTMOBeldar: given that problem i'd still see the issue as being in the sources22:12
geekmasterflashNeoID, it looks like it's a symbolic link, Neo.22:12
NeoIDgeekmasterflash, it should be/was always a file :S22:12
geekmasterflashNeoID, but other than that that strace doesnt tell me anything I know how to read22:12
BeldarhitsujiTMO, Did you see the sources.list post?22:12
NeoIDgeirha, -------------e- backup/homes22:12
hitsujiTMOBeldar: no i'll look up22:12
Mongo44Is Debian better than Ubuntu?22:12
geekmasterflashNeoID, I'd recommend showing it to someone that knows more than me22:12
iridethelongbusNobody has any idea about my printer issue? Im sure its something simple im missing as a nooB. I ran this guide: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/manual/hp_setup.html yet hp setup is not detecting a printer via USB.22:12
BeldarhitsujiTMO, They directed it at me, just one 3rd party.22:13
Beldarcould be the issue22:13
geirhaNeoID: and lsattr 'backup/homes/13. Taishou.a - Higurashi.mp3/' ?22:13
zykotick9Mongo44: is Red better than Blue?  <your question is OT here>22:13
NeoIDgeekmasterflash, I've shown the problem to a whole bunch of people who claim to know a lot about ubuntu, still no one figured it out :p22:13
NeoIDbut thanks for your help :)22:13
intersecHi, somebody can help me setting up the POSTFIX22:13
wafflejockTabletintersec: where are u stuck also does your ISP allow port 25 traffic?22:14
jhutchins_wkintersec: Depends on the question.22:14
geirhaIf it has the immutable flag (i) set, then that would explain why you couldn't remove the u flag on the ads file within it22:14
zzxc__WiGust: My russian is a little bit rough but He refenced a Library that isn't included, and simply pointed to chorium connecting to google.ru as proof of phoning home. Which it could be, but more likely its a plugin connecting.22:14
NeoIDgeirha, that gives me: ---D--d-c----e- /mnt/volume/backup/homes/Maki/Music/Musikk desktop/Ny cd/13. Taishou.a - Higurashi.mp3/ads22:14
intersecthe first problem is i never did it22:15
hitsujiTMOBeldar: the pastebin is expired.22:15
Mongo44Why did the ISS choose to switch to Debian?22:15
hitsujiTMOchalcedony: can you please again pastebin the file /etc/apt/sources.list22:15
geirhaNeoID: wait, the u flag is gone now. Try removing it22:15
zykotick9Mongo44: try #ubuntu-offtopic, #ubuntu is support only22:16
NeoIDgeirha, rm: cannot remove `ads': Permission denied22:16
geirhaNeoID: ok, back to what I asked before then,  lsattr '/mnt/volume/backup/homes/Maki/Music/Musikk desktop/Ny cd/13. Taishou.a - Higurashi.mp3/'  # the parent of ads22:17
zzxc__NeoID: Sudo !!22:17
geekmasterflashzzxc__, He's in su22:17
zzxc__NeoID: Ignore me!22:18
NeoIDgeirha, running that gives me: "---D--d-c----e- /mnt/volume/backup/homes/Maki/Music/Musikk desktop/Ny cd/13. Taishou.a - Higurashi.mp3/ads"22:18
NeoIDbut still I can't delete it22:18
hitsujiTMOchalcedony: can can you also run: sudo apt-get update &> ~/update.txt                   you'll then be able to pastebin the update.txt file in the home directory22:18
zzxc__I'm heading home. Have a good one guys.22:18
numbertenanyone with experience installing 12.04 on mbps? getting a hanging black screen whenever I try and 'install ubuntu' or 'try ubuntu w/o installing'22:19
jiffe99there a way to tell if a dvd is bootable from within ubuntu?22:19
zykotick9Mongo44: try #winehq for wine specific question22:19
geirhaNeoID: Really? it adds "ads" on the end, even when you did not provide it?22:19
NeoIDgeirha, yes it does22:20
NeoIDit's a folder inside a file :p22:20
geirhaNeoID: Then the filename probably has a / in its name, which is not allowed22:20
Mongo44Is there a way to turn screen brightness below the lowest setting? In darkness it seems too bright. I have tried redshift.22:20
NeoIDgeirha, ok? how may I cange that?22:20
geekmasterflashNeoID, Have you tried to rename it?22:20
geirhaNeoID: It shouldn't be possible to have a / in a filename in the first place22:20
buntutechgood evening resident ubuntites...22:20
buntutechi need help installing a game22:21
geekmasterflashbuntutech, Which game?22:21
geirhaSo somehow it's been corrupted22:21
buntutechit is called SecondLife22:21
NeoIDgeirha, it shouldn't have one... the original file, which also is/was on another server did not have a / in the filename22:21
buntutechand i have found instructions to install it in the terminal22:21
NeoIDmv filename foo.mp3 gives me permission denied22:22
buntutechhowever i am failing at just one small point that i don't understand?22:22
geirhaNeoID: It just ended with .mp3, right? so the NUL that terminated the file's name must've gotten changed somehow, by an accidental dd or some kernel bug or whatever22:22
buntutechi will do my best now to describe the final part of my terminal installation command and hope that someone here can help me with the last step22:23
buntutechthis will take me a moment to type it out please stand by...22:23
jiffe99so I've verified that I can read the contents of the ubuntu install disk from within ubuntu on my laptop, I've verified it is bootable, but my laptop won't boot it22:23
NeoIDgeirha, I guess something it's quite right as I can cd into the mp3 file and create folders22:23
jiffe99someone said xubuntu doesn't require PAE?22:24
wafflejockTabletbuntutech: use paste.Ubuntu.com for long text22:24
k1ljiffe99: it does22:24
jiffe99k1l: well what can I use that doesn't require PAE?22:24
k1ljiffe99: lubuntu was the one which got non-pae kernels22:24
wafflejockTabletU can get 12.04 with no pae22:24
Mongo44Does anyone know how to turn the screen brightness below the lowest given setting?22:25
wafflejockTabletI found xubuntu non pas for an older machine22:25
geirhaNeoID: It could also explain why it has odd ownership and weird combinations of attributes22:25
