BbbKUEGallomimia so I need to penale dhcp on router00:00
BurritoHydr0p0nX, I compiled 3.12 myself in order to investigate/fix a WiFi bug... I use Linux Mint 13, and it worked. It's the equivalent of trying it on Ubuntu 12.04, I guess. Your package manager might cry a little, and your graphics drivers might need to be reinstalled (I had to).00:01
Gallomimiaif your dhcp is disabled, how is there any info being passed about hostnames/dhcp client id's?00:01

Hydr0p0nXGallomimia, that's the kernel i'm using now00:03

Hydr0p0nXThe dkms.conf for this module includes a BUILD_EXCLUSIVE directive which00:04

BARbQGallomimia I just tried to connected via dhcp and see no hostname. Only IP00:09
killerbart10im bootin ubuntu 12.3 from sd card and i get a busbox error say that my partition isnt mounted00:09
Burritokillerbart10, SD card? Maybe the SD card is not partitioned correctly? In any case, this tool can be used to solve most common booting issues: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair00:09
Burritokillerbart10, has this issue occurred just out of the blue? Could you boot from it before? Or did it start occurring after an update?00:10
GallomimiaBARbQ: the hostname of another computer is determined through lookup services. this consists of looking at nameservers and through the host file. each machine needs access to a list of hosts you want determined. the router on the network sometimes doubles as a nameserver, or you can configure it all yourself.00:10
Gallomimianext time try google if you're so impatient :(00:11
BurritoGallomimia, I think that's what mine does. It has DNSMasq installed.00:11
BurritoSo.. It can do some nameserver things I guess00:11
Gallomimiaand it probably pairs it up with the dhcp-client-id's that each machine gives when it requests an ip00:11
BurritoI see00:11
killerbart10i booted fine befor then i uninstalled it because itwouldnt connect the internet then i tried installing it and thats when i get the error00:11
Gallomimiaand then anything that has .com or .net at the end, it requests the details from your isp's nameservers and passes that along00:12
Gallomimialike a normal dns00:12
Gallomimiapossible to configure a linux machine to run one... not as hard as you think, but not as easy as you'd like00:13
Burritokillerbart10, Use GParted to completely format the SD card, removing all partitions and flags, then make one bug EXT2 or EXT3 partition, and try installing it again. (If you haven't already tried that).00:13
Burritokillerbart10, what did you use to install the system onto the SD card?00:13
killerbart10im not curruntly using ubuntu to make my sd bootable00:13
killerbart10i used the terminal dd command00:14
BurritoI've never done that before.00:14

* Burrito pats FloodBot1 on the head "So sensitive..."00:15
PublicStaticVoidYeah that wasn't a flood00:15
BurritoPublicStaticVoid, libfaac0 and libfaad2 look relevant.00:17
PublicStaticVoidBurrito: Thanks. Can you tell me how you searched that, for future reference?00:17
BurritoI have it installed - I searched Synaptic for ".aac" and then sorted by what I have installed.00:18
BurritoSynaptic found it in precise/multiverse00:18
PublicStaticVoidI guess apt-cache search isnt very powerful just searches package names00:18
Gallomimiakillerbart10: what type of image file are you working with? it's likely you used dd of=/dev/thepartition and not the root device file. try it again00:18
PublicStaticVoidHow do I use synaptic to search packages?00:19
Gallomimiadpkg --get-selections is more powerful00:19
Gallomimiaor are you looking for something to install?00:19
Gallomimiawhat i listed shows your installed packages00:20
BurritoPublicStaticVoid, I'm on Mint. I ran "synaptic-pkexec", entered my password, and then used the search UI (there's a small search box at the top of the window). If you want an ncurses or text interface, I think Aptitude might be able to help you.00:20
killerbart10yes, i used the ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-i386.iso file with dd00:20
PublicStaticVoidlooking for a better way to search the repos for packages then just apt-cache search maybe a command that searches the descriptions as well?00:20
Gallomimiacan you list the full command you used to dd it on there killerbart10 ?00:20
PublicStaticVoidBurrito: Yea I like to just use commands if possible for speed00:21
PublicStaticVoidnot a big UI person00:21
Gallomimiafinding the right /dev for your of= thing is tough :/00:21

Gallomimiaknock the 1 off the end and try that00:21
PublicStaticVoider GUI I should say00:21

ClaireMcHi. I'm new to Ubuntu. How do I access a list of all the installed applications rather than just the icons in the side bar?00:22

Gallomimianot to make bootable drives. it needs the full disk00:22
Gallomimiasince it includes an mbr and so on00:22
PublicStaticVoidhitsujiTMO: huh, well apt-cache search aac returned nothing :(00:22
Burritoyeah, remember that ISOs are images of entire disks, meant to be booted as they are.00:22
PublicStaticVoidNo it returned to much sorry.00:22
Gallomimiagrep it perhaps? or put it thru less and read it all00:23
PublicStaticVoidhaha ok00:23
Burritoapt-cache search aac | grep aac? :P00:23
Gallomimiapipe it to a file and put it on your tablet to read during number 2?00:23
Gallomimiano grep it for something useful.00:24
Gallomimia"something useful" will be probably what you think of after reading the first few pages of results00:24
Burritooh, doing "| grep aac" actually helps00:24
Gallomimiaheh. can't see why, the results should all have aac in it?00:24
PublicStaticVoidI know right00:25
PublicStaticVoidSO I woulnt know what to grep00:25
PublicStaticVoidmaybe codec00:25
Gallomimiamaybe support00:25
Gallomimiamaybe audio00:25
Gallomimiathat's why i suggest less, skim the results a few pages, and grep it for a few things.00:25
killerbart10i also cant connect to the internet in ubuntu, it asks me to put the WEP key in but when i do it doesnt let me press connect?00:26
Gallomimiai also suggest the full results into a text file so you can do multiple operations on it without having to poll the apt-cache 5 or 10 times?00:26
Gallomimiakillerbart10: your key isn't long enough00:26
GallomimiaWEP minimum length is 8 right?00:26
BurritoTry WICD maybe?00:27
killerbart10but iit works on my other computers00:27
PublicStaticVoidkillerbart10: sounds like it isnt getting enough characters or not getting expected input00:27
killerbart10what should i do?00:27
BurritoMaybe NetworkManager is expecting a full Hex "key", and not a passphrase.00:27
PublicStaticVoidNetworkManager sucks so bad00:27
gordonjcpwasn't there a networkmanager plugin for WEP, that didn't bother asking for a WEP key but just cracked it?00:27
PublicStaticVoidWell i did when I used it on Arch00:27
BurritoI think you should try WICD, killerbart10. You would need to get it through a wired network connection or through a USB stick.00:28
PublicStaticVoidWhy on earth is your router still using WEP btw?Might as well still be open00:28
Burritoyeah, I also think you should start using WPA2, killerbart10 :P00:28
PublicStaticVoidCause WEP is cracked as easily as an android app now a days00:28
piccagordonjcp: that doesn't sound ethical at all, but wouldn't surprise me00:28
killerbart10how do i find what key i have00:29
PublicStaticVoidaircrack-ng can do any WEP key in about 2 mins or less00:29
Gallomimiakillerbart10: you usually set that in your accesspoint's setup00:29
PublicStaticVoidgordonjcp: Haha00:29
killerbart10ok brb00:29

SiecjeHow can I format a USB drive but be able to put files onit01:10
zacariasHi. I have a hard drive with Mac OS and Ubuntu installed. I reduced the sive of the Mac OS partition to save space for increasing the size of the Ubuntu partition. Now, I have 9 GB of free space just after the Mac OS partition, but after that I have a 1 MB partition with the bios_grub, and then the ext4 partition with Ubuntu. I'm affraid of moving the tiniy bios_grub partition. How should I do it (without having to install all again)?01:13

BeldarSiebjee, a usb is the same as a HD in formatting, take you pick here. http://askubuntu.com/search?q=format+USB01:16
krabadorhow can i let an user run an installed software, and another user not ?01:17
Burritoquem, I see01:18
Burritokrabador, I know very little about permissions, but I guess you are looking for group permissions.01:19
victor__Create a group: "allowed". Then add users into that group. Next run chgrp on the applications (to "allowed"). And finally, chmod to allow only root and "allowed" to execute.01:20
hitsujiTMOquem any preference on form factor?01:20
hdrealfanguyz , i'm on eOS luna , and i have Intel hd4000 graphics , do i need to install additional driver or not01:20
krabadorBurrito, i thinked about the creation of a group, and don't add an user, but i don't know how to set the group01:20
krabadorvictor__, tell me more01:21
gordonjcp!elementary | hdrealfan01:21
ubottuhdrealfan: Elementary OS is an Ubuntu derivative which is supported in their IRC channel #elementary on irc.freenode.net - http://elementaryos.org/ for more information on this distribution.01:21
hitsujiTMOquem. hmm thats 1 too many drives for any mobos with onboard processors :(01:21
Burritozacarias, if I were you (and if you can make another partition on that drive), I would make a 9GB partition in that free space before the grub partition, and mount something like /usr/bin on there. Or any folder that would take up roughly 9GB eventually. A more permanent and elegant solution would be to just move the grub partition and deal with what comes.01:21
Burritoif you can call it 'elegant'.01:21
Guest45566hello :) I am using Ubuntu 13.10 and need a program that will allow me to record what I am doing on the computer, and audio at the same time when I need it. Is there a program that will do such a thing?01:21
Dratonhi everyone, back again - so i copied over my windows partition with dd, hopped on windows and removed the ubuntu parts from the copy, but now i'm trying to get windows to identify the new copies as its boot sectors  (still booting off of the original drive)01:21
Dratonany ideas?01:21
hdrealfanok thanks gordonjcp01:22
brokendriveHITSUJITMO > when I do a #fdisk -l it shows the drives as a GPT system not HFS does that change things? I wonder if I can test write a file to the macs /dev/sda to see if its writable?01:22
krabadorvictor__, and if i installed a sofwarem and i create the group, users without permission will look sotware's icons in menus ?01:23
spearheadkrabador: if you only want one use to be able to run it set the owner of the file to that user and set the permissions using chmod 700 path_to_file/name _ of _ file01:23
victor__krabador "groupadd allowed"01:23
hitsujiTMObrokendrive: gpt is the partition table. hfs is a partition type. different things01:23
BeldarDraton, You dd'd the windows boot partition?01:23
spearheadkrabador: that will allow only that user and root to read write or execute that file.01:24
DratonBeldar: I dd'd the whole disk to prevent issues, did a update-grub01:24
DratonBeldar: then booted off of the 'sddb (thew windows ssd)01:25
victor__krabador next, add users into group: sudo usermod -a -G allowed user_a01:25
hitsujiTMObrokendrive: you can disable the journal in osx and reenable it after. but you be better off to install the mac port of ddrescue01:25
quemhitsujiTMO: damn, that hadn't occurred to me at all. guess asus c8hm70-i/hdmi is off the menu too then. :/01:25
BeldarDraton, Then removed the ubuntu, cause it's on the original ssd, which ubuntu got the update grub?01:25

brokendriveHITSUJITMO> I was hoping to do this in the forensics linux distro to use some of the utils on the image if i have to to recover wedding photos... i guess i could come back to the linux once the image is made on the mac01:26
DratonBeldar: I want ubuntu (primary) on the original ssd, removed ubuntu from sdb (the new windows only drive) but windows is showing it's booting of of sda still - i'm afraid that if i remove windows from sda it will put me in a bad state01:26
victor__krabador then, change the applications permissions... say, firefox. sudo chgrp allowed /usr/bin/firefox01:26
=== mnepton is now known as mneptok
BeldarDraton, Having two identical windows, is a problem, did you make an image as I suggested?01:27
krabadorvictor__, and this last, let only allowed members to run /usr/bin/firefox ?01:28
hitsujiTMOquem: or if you want something a little cheaper http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4729#ov01:29
quemhitsujiTMO: ah, looks good. but i suppose it wouldn't fit in a mini-itx case?01:29
=== kruxoman_ is now known as kruxoman
hitsujiTMOquem: ahh so m-itx cool01:29
BeldarDraton, Do you have a recovery or install disc for windows, if it were mr I would setup the new ssd's mbr to boot just windows, check that it boots and then remove the original.01:30
quemhitsujiTMO: good thing i didn't order anything yet.. i've done many uninformed dumbass purchases lately and i'm getting tired of it. :P haven't been following the developments in hardware in nearly a decade and gotten by with crappy laptops instead of assembling anything myself.01:30
victor__krabador finally, the permission itself: sudo chmod 774 /usr/bin/firefox01:30
victor__krabador i guess this will do.... 774: owner can do everything... group too, others just read.01:31
DratonBeldar: at this point i just dd'd and updated grub, i don't have a repair disk01:32
quemhitsujiTMO: what do you think of the ASRock E350M1?01:32
rwwshould be 775 if you want them to also execute it01:32

DratonBeldar: going to try something one sec01:33
BeldarDraton, Heh, your totally unprepared like most users, usually it is mistakes here that are a good dope slap needed. You can boot into a windows right?01:33
hitsujiTMOquem: you're willing to drop to 3 hdds?01:33
quemhehe, not quite.01:33
krabadorvictor, ok01:33
quembut one, sure.. 1 SSD + 3 HDD.01:34
DratonBeldar: I think the issue is the new drive doesn't have an MBR01:34
DratonBeldar: so windows isn't identifying it as a system drive01:34
BeldarDraton, Right and a recovery disc made in a windows will fix this.01:35
DratonBeldar: I can boot into a windows recovery partition, trying to restore the mbr now01:35
BeldarDraton, right in the sense we can load the bcd boot to the mbr and see if it boots, nothing to do with it being seen however.01:36
damarusamaI only have the iw commande - can I use that to connect my wireless adapter to my unsecured network?01:36
BeldarDraton, Dude, you are picking at it and may end up with a broken setup. Can you boot to windows and make the tiny recovery disc?01:37
quemhitsujiTMO: maybe i could run the OS off a 16 or 32 GB USB memory. :)01:38
hitsujiTMOquem: yup looks pretty sweet. what price are you getting for it?01:38
hitsujiTMOquem: lol, thats not a bad idea :P01:38
DratonBeldar: so everything i'm doing is to the new drive01:38
quem537 SEK, 82 USD, is the best option in Sweden.01:38
DratonBeldar so worst case i can restore from the old01:39
quemhitsujiTMO: it's a hell lot cheaper than an SSD anyhow, heh01:39
BeldarDraton, We are not even close to actually communicating, I can't really help without that.01:39
DratonBeldar: I don't what you mean? I'm currently on the restore partition of the original drive (sda). I'm using it, in essence, as a restore cd to restore the windows mbr on the new drive (sdb)01:40
hitsujiTMOquem: yeah not gonna find something much cheaper than that01:40
kkkkkkkkkkkhi, all i am using ubuntu 12.04 64 bit and kernel  but it is freezing randomly, most of times, when chrome open, it happens everytime i login and do browsing, for example say after 30-40 minutes, alt+ctrl+delete not working, alt+ctrl+f2 not working, only things that works for me, alt+prtsys+REISUB, I don't want to lose my work and it is annoying, this thing was not present in 32 bit ubuntu and it was working quite good, with kernel
BeldarDraton, You might ask in ##windows on this part, a recovery disc/usb is the standard way to reload the mbr.01:42

Gallomimiayup. pretty whack02:39

laura-_Crazy question: Is it possible to change the charset of the /boot/efi partition?02:52
spearheadjames-: depending on what you want to use it for it is good for recording, playback and some editing. Website at http://audacity.sourceforge.net and it is in the repositories if you want to install it.02:52
laura-_I think I'm getting burned because my /boot/efi partition is iso8859-1, and it doesn't look like Ubuntu 13.10 supports that combo02:53
DratonSo Beldar: i have a recovery disk (assuming this worked)... if i understand you: 1. unplug original ssd 2. boot into recovery and restore mbr on new ssd, 3. replugin old ssd, 4. update grub and boot into new ssd, confirm everything is happy, 5. remove old windows02:54
james-spearhead, i just want it for recording desktop. If I am doing something and I want to record it, maybe some audio sometimes. I am taking computer science in college and could use such a program to do presentations for class projects. I am taking Linux next semester and could really use such a program.02:54
ZiberCan I get my terminal to show user@remotehost when I SSH?02:54
DratonBeldar: I assume the unplugging is to prevent the mbr restore from nuking grub?02:55
Dratonziber: yes you can02:55
Dratonziber: google .bash_rc and .bash_profile02:56
BeldarDraton, Basically you have identical windows, and yeah we just want the windows bootloader in that new ssd, so if it boots you know you can remove the windows from the original.02:56

spearheadjames-: it is a file type, kind of like the difference between mp3 and wav audio files.03:25
AprelhitsujiTMO: Okay, now trying in my other script: addopts="--keep-foreign-metadata" and on a later line: flac `echo $addopts` -ds -o /tmp/flacBack.wav "$flacName" gives an error line 12: [: --keep-foreign-metadata: integer expression expected03:26
james-spearhead, I see. Cool I am checking them out now, they seem to work awesome!03:26
hitsujiTMOspearhead: nope. wav and mp3 are codecs. mp4 is a container03:26
spearheadhitsujiTMO: that is true but if it is contained in a mp4 it pretty much always has the same codec... at least in my experience.03:27
james-spearhead, where does kazam save files?03:27
spearheadhitsujiTMO: it is usually m4v codec03:28
spearheadjames-: it saved it in my Videos folder.03:29
ZiberWhat does "client denied by server configuration" mean when getting a 403 error on an apache server under 13.10 mean?03:29
james-spearhead, trying to figure out how to stop kazam lol03:29
Aprelrcmaehl_mibbit: that might work. But some OSes might fail to mount it because will likely be ISO/UDF, not FAT or NTFS, which it is expecting on a flash drive.03:29
hitsujiTMOspearhead: if your using a simgle app to write mp4s then it will most certainly use the same codec each time, but i download all sorts of mp4s and they're always a huge variety of codecs in them, h264, x264, mp3, aac, ac3, xvid, divx, mpeg2 ... the list goes on03:30
jarnomp4 is a codec mkv is a container imho03:31
Aprelrcmaehl_mibbit: Are you trying to take a bootable image like one of the ubuntu isos and copy to flash drive to boot form it?03:31
spearheadjames-: when the Kazam window has focus in the bar at the top of the screen click File > Quit or hit Ctrl+q03:32
hitsujiTMOAprel: that should be: flac "$addopts" -ds -o /tmp/flacBack.wav "$flacName"                      in the least03:32

DratonBeldar: ok so failed to boot, going to use the recovery to try to repair, guessing it doesn't like the hardware change03:34
DratonBeldar: hit the mbr though03:34
spearheadjarno: I think it is both a container and a codec because I know you can have an mp4 file type which is not encoded as mp4 (or m4v as the video one is called I think) the confusion comes since mp4 files are used for video, video and audio, or just audio...03:35

Guest76162Hi, i've got a challenging problem. While installing/updating the new ubuntu 13.10, I was installing my nvidia drivers and some OsX skins with general updates, etc... and after a required reboot, the screen goes through the paces like the purple background with the Ubuntu logo and the five dots, then goes completely black. The mouse only activates after i wiggle it, and i get a white X (the mac curser, if i recall) and that's it. no keystrokes do03:40
Guest76162anything, no mouse clicks do anything... both screens are activated, the laptop main and the 32" secondary... but nothing else happens. This is the same computer, am on a live-boot now... so showing error screens may be a little bit of a challenge. Ideas? anyone?03:40

Guest32007Burrito, idk what that means03:58
BurritoGuest32007, and by "don't work", what do you mean? Any error messages? Does it go away and then come back?03:59
Guest32007Burrito, oh it works fine i just dont want it. If i want to visit amazon ill go to amazon.com i just dont want it installed on my OS03:59
BurritoNo, I mean when you try to remove it, what doesn't work?03:59
BeldarDraton, I use clonezilla and windows has a cloner, up to the pro version you get one image, pro and up unlimited, either will work fine.04:01

BurritoGuest32007, Unfortunately I haven't used Ubuntu in a while... Is Amazon just in Unity for you (the adverts), or has it taken over more of Ubuntu? If it's just in Unity, this command should still work: sudo apt-get remove unity-lens-shopping04:03

headpunterdoes nvidida optimus work in linux?05:37
maxh76'sudo apt-get get update' thenn 'sudo apt-get install nvidia-current-319*' yes to the prompts. You might want to uninstall nvidia first. 'sudo apt-get uninstall nvidia-*' make sure you're in a TTY before that, and reinstall 'ubuntu-desktop'05:37
pvl1AiA: what is the problem05:37
lotuspsychje!optimus | HeadlessDan05:38
ubottuHeadlessDan: The Bumblebee Project aims to support NVIDIA Optimus technology under Linux. The Bumblebee website can be found at http://bumblebee-project.org/05:38
AiAcan I just download that, and install it like the other, or do I need to do something omnious to the driver?05:38
maxh76Well, installing it from the Nvidia website isn't as good.05:38
maxh76That's probably why it broke.05:38
pvl1maxh76: why not05:38
pvl1why wouldnt the manufacturers drivers be optimal05:38
maxh76You need to install Ubuntu's nvidia drivers, that should be better.05:38
maxh76Well, you don't need to.05:39
robierobAiA: whats the file location for minecraft in the file tree?05:39
maxh76I've heard people installing from the manufacturer and it didn't work well. Ubuntu's nvidia drivers are open source and seem to work better as well05:39
maxh76You can go into the additional drivers utility and activate the recommended nvidia drivers. 319, I believe.05:40
lotuspsychjeheadpunter: that link was for you mate05:40
pvl1maxh76: no what youve heard is that compiling didnt work well. when you bite the bullet and go through the effort to actually install it, its better, bc it compiles for your system05:40
maxh76pv11: oh, okay. So installing from ubuntu's repos for nvidia drivers doesn't compile? I'm a bit confused.05:40
pvl1maxh76: the open source ones are just easier to install05:41
pvl1maxh76: not exactly. the repos one is modified, after all its open source05:41
maxh76pv11: Okay, so the one's from the manufacturer are better?05:41
pvl1and the open source community, unless its willing to reverse engineer expensive gpu chips isnt able to develop the same driver that the manuf. can05:41
pvl1they are definetly better05:41
pvl1they are the ones that made the technology in the first place05:42
headpunterthanks lotuspsychje05:42
pvl1thats why even when your on windows, you prefer the actual driver, over whatever windows supplies05:42
maxh76Maybe I'll try installing those, wonder how much that would up my performance. Although I have a nvidia 204 card, so it's pretty old..05:42
maxh76Well, yea that's true. But ubuntu, linux in itself actually, is much different from the perspective. Some open-source drivers for some tools are better then the proprietary ones.05:43
pvl1maxh76: the performance difference is usually for newer cards.05:43
pvl1maxh76: i havent neccessarily seen it, but i wont disspute it. its just when it comes to things like gpu's, its the manufacturer thats best05:44

pvl1maxh76: whats up05:45
Scott_SUbuntu uses a repository from Nvidia, the drivers are the same, the repository simply has drivers that are easier to install. They aren't guaranteed to be the latest. /info05:46
pvl1Scott_S: does that mean that they compile upon installation05:46
maxh76I get 'BUG: unable to handle kernel paging error at ff2b0022'05:47

phutchinsThe requested url does not exist(22): 'http://cache.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/./ruby-2.0.0p247.tar.bz2'05:47
Scott_Spvl1, Well, there are a few things it has to compile. You may have noticed it generates a boot image when it installs and uses the nouveau server for 3d acceleration.05:47
maxh76pv11: After the install, it installs fine. But then when I turn it back on, that's what happens.05:47
peyammaxh76, bad made image. during instalation = Download again and make cd05:48
pvl1Scott_S: is nvidia still the module?05:48

varunendraschone, to be honest, I'm not sure about that, but I can tell it would be more complex than it needs to be. Probably you'd have to create a rw duplicate of the filesystem (or keep it ready somewhere), then 'chroot' into it. But like I said, I'm not sure if it would work as expected.06:17

varunendraschone, if you could get the advance boot menu somehow, it would have been fairly easy. But it seems you should also be able to add the "persistence" flag in the isolinux/txt.cfg file within the ISO. Maybe use "ISOmaster" to replace that file and see if it helps06:30

PublicStaticVoidI switched to te open source AMD Driver crashed and burned.. restrted to black screen had to use nomodeset to get a tty08:57

tiesHello. I just accidently deleted the entire /home/me/Documents. I tried recovery via a usb with extundelete but receive the error message "638 recoverable inodes found. Looking through the directory structure for deleted files ...  638 recoverable inodes still lost. No files were undeleted.". Any suggestions^09:00
llutzties: standard answer: recover from backup09:01
llutzties: you may try photorec or similar tools but if they will have more success....09:02
tiestell llutz unfortunately I was in the process of eliminating unecessary files, and was just finished and about to copy them to a usb when I clicked "effacer" instead of "copier"09:02
PublicStaticVoidSo for some reason when I switched from the binary AMD Driver to the Xorg open source driver I crashed and rebooted into a black screen. Had to use nomodeset kernel option just to get back to a tty09:03
PublicStaticVoidCould my chipset be to new for the open source driver?09:03
llutzties: "clicked" so some GUI-acions? doesn't your gui has a trashbin to recover from?09:03
PublicStaticVoidalso how can I switch back to the binary driver?09:03
tiesllutz: well, I looked there, but it seems to me that they bypassed this folder and just "disappeared", kind of like with shift-del if I have understood correctly... If it helps, I am using xubuntu 12.04...09:05
llutzties: shift-del removes files directly in most filemanagers afaik. so you're lost if you don't have a backup. i'd try photorec as a last resort09:06
llutzties: and for the future you should think about some automatic backup-solutions. as you see, manual backups won't work09:07
tiesllutz: ya.... I thought it would work out... but one wrong click and disaster strikes... darn....09:08

aeon-ltdglambert: but partitions are designated sdax, i think that would work though i've rarely used dd09:38
glambertwhat's sdax?09:38
aeon-ltdglambert: are you sure something like clonezilla might be better?09:39
glambertplan is to back up everything windows into an image file and then resize ubuntu to fill disk09:39
aeon-ltdglambert: sda x as in a number e.g. sda109:39
glambertthen I can either VM my windows partition or just keep it until I ever need to restore it09:39
SaberX01glambert, as far as I know, dd has no knowledge of the file system itself, so if you wnated higher resolution on say backups or something, when you built your partitions, create lots more of them to start with.09:39

glambertback up everything windows into an image and either VM it or keep it incase I need to restore windows in the future, for whatever reason09:42
glambertand then resize ubuntu to fill disk rather than half of it09:43
glambertwhich I will need a live disk for at that point09:43
SaberX01glambert, for the Windows BU, you better off using the Full BU utils it provides, and restore that in the VM, should should work, thought I've not tried it. As for fullign the disk, LiveCD and gparted can do that.09:44
glambertwindows has backup facilities? do they actually function?09:45

glamberthmm, OK, will look into it.  Where does it store the backup files?09:47
SaberX01glambert, Well, that's the issue for you on what your trying to do/. The best solution would be an external device of some sort, so you can re-size the partition without worrying about the Win partition.09:48
glambertI was hoping to do the backup from within ubuntu, then test it out by creating a VM for it and/or creating a new partition and putting the image on there, then if all OK, deleting the partition(s)09:49
theGrgHi. When I installed Ubuntu I set it up with full disk encryption using the installer. Now I'm trying "vgscan" or "lvdisplay", but it says "No volume groups found". Why would this happen? I want to run "lvreduce" on the volume.09:50
SaberX01glambert, the BU can be done from within Ubuntu / *Nix but having that BU actually boot In a VM .. don't think that can work but there may be some work around for it, I just don't know what it is.09:51
glambertSaberX01, ok thanks, will keep looking into it09:53
theGrgEven though a /dev/mapper/sda6_crypt exists here.09:53
SaberX01glambert, my best suggestion would be BU your data files from the Win Install .. then expand Ubuntu to full disk, in VBox, do a fresh Win Install and copy your data files back in, then you'll always have a Working Windows VM you can easily BU / Transfer.09:54

PublicStaticVoidI dunno if I need latest AMD Binary or wha09:57

ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo12:45
user82does anyone else recently have problems with skype? mine occasionally freezes until i kill it manually12:45
streulmacloudgeek: You are a Sudo user, just do sudo passwd root12:45

ikoniacloudgeek: you should be using your normal account and "sudo"12:47
cloudgeekikonia: also my regular user password also gone12:48
ikoniacloudgeek: that's why there is no root password12:48
ikoniacloudgeek: I doubt it's "gone"12:48

dn4and then my bios gets all sorts of fact up12:59
dn4but ubuntu 10.04 installs perfectly12:59
SaberX01cristian_c, hitsujiTMO WHile not specific to a Keyboard, this solar apt grabs the Batt level and displays it though: http://askubuntu.com/questions/248006/how-can-i-see-the-battery-status-of-my-logitech-wireless-mouse12:59

cloudgeekikonia: thanks12:59
ikoniadn4: that's not "proof" that's just you having a problem12:59
dn4ikonia, yeah but why does my bios get changed13:00
cristian_cSaberX01, ok, I'll take a look, thanks13:00
cristian_cSaberX01, ok, but Solaar is only for logitech13:00
cloudgeekikonia: let me try to login in it  :)13:01
SaberX01cristian_c, Well, that's too bad, as there is a PPA for it also.13:02
dn4can udev go into the bios and change stuff?13:02
ikoniadn4: no13:02
cloudgeekikonia: Thank you very much13:03
dn4then why did my bios settings get changed followed by mod probe cpu lockup due to udev ?13:03
zxdin sort are there any config files for update-manager where does it save its settings?13:04
cristian_cSaberX01, ok13:04
hitsujiTMOdn4: what bios settings got changed exactly? typically an os cannot write to the bios settings13:04
Allison43dn4, which bios settings get changed ?13:04
cristian_chitsujiTMO, or have I to try other applications to detect hardware with dbus?13:05
Allison43dn4, or are you changing the bios settings and forgetting to save them and blaming udev13:05
dn4it was a video setting13:05
hitsujiTMOcristian_c: i'm not sure what bustle is tbh, so no idea13:05
dn4and now my machine won't boot up regularly and I have to use the recovery mode13:06
cristian_chitsujiTMO, ok13:06
hitsujiTMOdn4: what exact setting? video setting isn't exactly a bios setting13:06
hitsujiTMOdn4: what is your gpu?13:07
dn4no gnu; old Asus a7v266 motherboard13:08
SaberX01cristian_c, what is the make and model of this thing your trying to get the batt level on?13:08
hitsujiTMOdn4: so its an onboard gpu. can you pastebin output of: lspci13:10

cfhowlettashoksahoo, then stay with win713:31
bekksashoksahoo: Create backups. Unless your data is not worth to be kept.13:31
SaberX01merandus, 6413:31
Mohamdit seems the distro perfectly works live via the pendrive .. but when i start to install it says the ERno 5 : input and output error13:31
Mohamdwhat do you think i should do?13:31
ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit13:31
bekksMohamd: Investigate the error :)13:31
james-lotuspsychje, nope that isn't it either :0 sorry to be a pain in the neck, don't have to mount volumes through the terminal I can still mount them by going to files, device, and selecting the volume i'd like to mount. It just don't show in the unity bar on the left that it's mounted. It's easier when it's on the launcher.13:31

james-lotuspsychje, Sometimes, but I mainly use linux drives. I just like the mounted drives to show on unity. I can show you a picture if you'd like, is there something similar to pastebin but instead of pastes I can show pictures?13:33
MohamdInstallation failed : installer encountered an error copying files to the hardisk13:33
Mohamd[erno 5] input and output error13:33
bekksMohamd: Yeah, then type: dmesg and see which errors occured.13:33
SaberX01merandus, its pretty easy really, if you have 64 installed and need it, you have it, if ya dont and need it, your hosed. easier just to install it.13:33
bekksMohamd: Yes, dmesg13:34
merandusSaberX01:  so  for having both 64/32 support i just go with 64?13:34
bekksmerandus: Yes.13:34
Mohamdbekks : im not on the linux now , because i cant install it13:34
merandusSaberX01: if i go 32bit, then i won't be able to work 64bit packages/codes or something13:35
bekksmerandus: Correct. Using 32bit, you cannot use 64bit. But you can use 32bit when being on 64bit.13:35
SaberX01merandus, Yup, if ya need 32bit support, just add ia32-libs .. and go from there.13:35
Mohamdas soon as that error pops .. then it shows up that the launcher has crashed13:35

Phoenixxlikonia, i know i'm not talking about upstart13:42
ikoniaPhoenixxl: what are you talking about then, as upstart is the init system for ubuntu13:42
SaberX01cristian_c, I did a quick search, did not yield much you probably need to compile a module, but that's a guess, and where to find the how too, probably not easy either.13:43

pcMadhurjya, have a try, but I think the problem might be the version of kernel and adherent libraries, for example I was unable to run new nvidia drivers on 10 yrs old system14:00
Madhurjyabekks,pc I mean which one do you think would run better in an older system (amd athlon 4600/2GB RAM/128mb NVIDIA integrated nForge Graph.)14:01
SaberX01gordonjcp, I think they call that sticky edges .. there's some compiz config stuff for it, not sure exactly where it's at.14:01

zzzHello everyone, I am using a Dell laptop with Ubuntu 13.10  and I am trying to format my thumb drive. I right click the drive select format and it looks like it's going to format, the drive flashes then it stops formatting and everything is still on it.14:05
gordonjcpSaberX01: sticky edges are off14:05
Madhurjyabekks, The problem is that whenever I start Ubunt 12.04 LTS, the display distorts and crashes!14:05
gordonjcpSaberX01: makes no difference, and I believe that's only for multiple monitors14:06
bekksMadhurjya: So which nvidia driver did you install?14:06
PhoenixxlhitsujiTMO, yes , thnx I looked it's hardcoded in the install script , sadly . That means I'll have to manually redo the dante entry if it ever gets updated . bah. thnx.14:06

MonkeyDustzzz  or simply "delete"?14:22
anton02bekks: lol it wasnt me i dont think14:22
zzzMonkeyDust, delete is also gray14:22
MonkeyDustzzz  odd... maybe you have to unmount it first, does that make sense?14:23
SaberX01vboxuser, A server not like a desktop, it's not setup to do loads of restarts., Generally, you set it up, and it stays up and runnign for long periods of time. Allot of these tool, while they function on servers, are for DE users.14:23
zzzMonkeyDust, I will that hold on. I wouldn't know what makes sense I have used Linux for a while now but I am no problem solver yet by any means, to me you are the expert :)14:24
SaberX01vboxuser, So wiht that in mind, create a mount point, mount the device, add to fstab if you like, config Samba or SSHFS, and you should eb good to go.14:25
vboxuserSaberX01, let me explain again. Maybe I'm wrong! :p So, having no DE, I need to make my external USB HDD automagically mounted always at the same mountpoint when I simply plug-in this device14:25

SaberX01Jacob999, The you can do a release-upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04 in April, should good to go then.15:14
dimitrishitsujiTMO: and then do the link thing again?15:14
zzzhitsujiTMO, yes it formats using sudo umount /dev/sdb1 && sudo mkfs.vfat -F32 /dev/sdb115:14

zzzMonkeyDust, kind of. When I use the sudo umount /dev/sdb1 && sudo mkfs.vfat -F32 /dev/sdb1 command i can format with no problem. For some reason I have to use gparted to unmount the flash drive and then when I try formatting it it don't format it flashes like its going to and does nothing.15:18

blacklighthi all, i'm experiencing problems on my saucy x64 when starting or configuring most of my audio apps (audacity, lmms, mixxx...), they take at least 20 seconds to start and on stdout i see these messages15:23
blacklightfrom what i read around the net, it is an issue with bluez-alsa, but uninstalling bluetooth support for alsa is not an option for me15:24
hitsujiTMOdimitris: which version of ubuntu did you say this was again?15:24
killerbart10when i try and boot from ubuntu it starts says booting/loading ubuntu the boots back into KDE.15:24
blacklightthis is perfectly reproducible if you install bluez-alsa on x64 and then you simply go with this python code:15:25
blacklight>>> import pyaudio15:25
blacklight>>> p = pyaudio.PyAudio()15:25
hitsujiTMOdimitris: can you also tell me the output of: sudo modprobe iwlwifi15:25
dimitrishitsujiTMO: ubuntu 13.10 32bit15:25
killerbart10when i try and boot from ubuntu it starts says booting/loading ubuntu the boots back into KDE.15:26
blacklightthe system takes at least 20 seconds for initializing the audio and those messages pop out, there are folks reporting this issue even 2 years ago, it looks confirmed, but no workaround or solution, is anyone aware of some progress?15:26
it_try av linux15:26
SaberX01blacklight, if bluez is causing the issue, I understand you cant remove it perm, but for test the fix, maybe submit a bug report with before and after.15:26
blacklightSaberX01: bluez is the issue, and there are already many bug reports for this, for example here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bluez/+bug/36161515:27

zzzMonkeyDust, I also have another issue maybe you could shed some light on :) I am on a laptop. When I log in I have to use the synclient tapbutton1=1 command to be able to tap my mouse pad to select things. is there a way I can fix this?15:33
hitsujiTMOdimitris: can you reboot the laptop and after the bios screen hit shift or escape to bring up the grub menu. go to the advanced menu and select an older kernel from the list. see if that allows the wifi to work15:33
it_is someone using AirOS?15:33
llutzBlackkatt: does it also come with mini.iso, server, lubuntu, kubuntu, xubuntu?15:33

hitsujiTMOdimitris: I think the issue is a missing firmware from the latest kernel update. you need to boot an older kernel to get wifi back15:42

A1Reconspearhead: What would happen if I did not click next and went ahead with stream? Shouldn't the file be saved somewhere by default?16:30
spearheadA1Recon: if I understand how stream works in vlc the bytes it gets from the source are stored in ram until they are displayed then they are discarded. if that is not the case then the stream might get saved in /tmp but would be deleted as soon as you stopped streaming. also that would be a raw data file and you would have to process it with some application before it would be usable.16:32
jonez813hitsujiTMO: this is a LVM that im trying to mount, not sure if  i said that originally16:32
SaberX01A1Recon, they are most likely in ~/Downlaods/ if you've not changed any preference, or so the docs say.16:33
spearheadA1Recon: but I am pretty sure it is not saved because you cannot rewind the stream16:33
SaberX01Yeah, from reading the docs, you have to tell it to record or whatever.16:34

varunendraLaurenceb_, was the cable connected all the time?17:44
Laurenceb_its was on wifi17:44

Laurenceb_fixed it17:45
Laurenceb_i think17:45
varunendraLaurenceb_, your ifconfig output shows eth0 as connected (there is an IP, and traffic), while the wlan0 has no IP - most probably  disconnected17:45

Laurenceb_i killed the old one17:46

wandernautaHi all! I have some problems with tearing with the nouveau driver and fullscreen (HD) video as well as YouTube. Am I just SOL or is there a magic go-do-smooth-video button? I don't care about 3D performance. Card is a NVidia NVS-somethingsomething I believe.18:47
ravigehlothitsujiTMO: I am still getting the login screen for KDE...even after I removed the PPA...18:48
StrawHatit might be a ur gfx card18:48
StrawHatbut i doubt it18:48
bekkswandernauta: Why dont you use the nvidia drivers then?18:48
wandernautaStrawHat, Framerate is better on Windows + no tearing.18:48
wandernautabekks, I thought 2D performance was similar between the two, and I dislike the binary blob18:48
StrawHatI mean are u using firefox for youtube?18:48
hitsujiTMOravigehlot: that would be from the kde login package in ubuntu repos18:49
wandernautaStrawHat, Chrome, but there's also tearing if I use mplayer or vlc18:49
bekkswandernauta: the performance is pretty different.18:49
ravigehlothitsujiTMO: so the PPA doesn't remove the software...it only restores it to the former state...18:49
wandernautabekks, Yes, for 3D.18:49
hitsujiTMOravigehlot: you can change the greeter in your lightdm config if you wish18:49
Beldaroxsyn, My guess is there may be a control in dconf-editor18:49

DratonBeldar: also got grub working again19:17
DratonBeldar: just at a loss for how to fix windows :)19:17
BeldarDraton, The problem here is that when you have identical windows, grub is not smart enough to ascertain a difference. So if you have that windows imaged I would remove the original, and just leave the new on sdb and update grub that should be it.19:19
needhelpquickwould downloads the 32 bit version on a 64 bit system make a problem?19:19
DratonBeldar: Ok, sounds good, i do have windows imaged, here goes nothing...19:19
BeldarDraton, Cool, having an image is your best insurance.19:20
DratonBeldar: So if i nuke sda1 and sda2, then do a update-grub, it should be good to go?19:20
BeldarDraton, Yeah should be good, at worst you may need to reload the sdb with the bootrec /fixmbr to make sure windows boots on its own, grub should see it and add just it to the grub menu withna grub-update.19:22
DratonBeldar: alright, here goes nothing.19:22

Ignacio`(with apt-get)21:42
sv2241bekks: I thought so too but it doesn't work for me. need something else. Like in Windows FTP servers, where you can add specific paths for a user to access21:43
AcidRain_sv2241, what issue are u having?21:43
MyrttiIgnacio`: install --reinstall21:43
sv2241bekks: one cannot mount bind a subdirectory under a filesystem but the whole filesystem itself21:43
AcidRain_sv2241, not true...21:43
bekkssv2241: Thats not true.21:44
AcidRain_i currently have like... 7-15 subdirectories mounted in my sftp users folder21:44
sv2241AcidRain_: ok.. how does it work then?21:44
Ignacio`Myrtti, thx!21:44
AcidRain_same as u are bind mounting the whole filesystem. just target a subdirectory....21:44
=== sd is now known as Guest17940
AcidRain_sv2241, if u still have the issue of more than just that subdirectory being accessed. then the issue is your permissions21:45
sv2241AcidRain_, bekks: something like this? mount -t nfs -o hard,retry=100,ro /home/user/Music21:46
=== msx__ is now known as msx
sv2241AcidRain_, bekks: or mount --bind -t nfs -o hard,retry=100,ro /home/user/Music ?21:46
AcidRain2012 /media/Server2/My_Documents/Text_Files     /media/AcidShower/FTP/ftpuser/My_Documents/Text_Files/  bind  _netdev,bind         0  021:47
AcidRain2012im not sure what your numbers mean. but this is what i use21:47
sv2241AcidRain2012: what would be the equivalent in command line? mount -t nfs or mount -t cifs.....21:48
AcidRain_not sure. u wanna use --bind though. i know this21:49
sv2241AcidRain_: alright, let me give it a try real quick21:49
AcidRain_though, i believe that if u do NOT specify a filesystem type, mount will do it for u. or at least try.21:49
XposWinUhow can I read/edit a link in gedit? not the destination of the link.21:50
BeldarXposWinU, gksduo gedit /path to link21:50

sv2241AcidRain_: root@server:/# mount --bind /home/user/Music21:52

hitsujiTMOsv2241: you dont use bind with nfs shares. what are you trying to do?21:54
XposWinUI have a link file pointing to /a/b/c.txt, I want to edit the link file, not c.txt21:54
AcidRain_sv2241, ah. thats beyond me. i havent dealt with that.21:54
