vl4kn0Hi, I have a problem with my Atheros wireless card (ar9285). The ath9k seems to be working properly, the device is recognized and I can scan available networks, but sometimes I can't see any, even if standing couple of meters from the AP, or cannot connect to it. Sometimes it works flawlessly. Any idea what could be wrong?00:04
XQt-rookiebut should be with a better resolution00:06
XQt-rookiehitsujiTMO: windows make look much better00:06
hitsujiTMOXQt-rookie: its either your tv or the gpu is the limiting factor00:07
hitsujiTMOXQt-rookie: what driver?00:07
hitsujiTMOwait. i can see that in the log00:07
hitsujiTMOXQt-rookie: maybe the driver in windows allows more resolutions, but it only allows those 4 in linux00:08

BeldarVlanX, not sure what "instead of like 4.0GB?" means00:27

magical1is there a way to find out what if I have accidently blocked ports?00:37
Beldaractually W8n and 3 other OS00:37
DratonBeldar: quite honestly i think it might have been a difference between W7 and W8, when i did the same procedure to W8 (i installed it instead) it handled it fine00:37
Fudgep0wder:  what doyou mean by 0day00:38

Auzymagical1: Not sure if I came half way through the conversation, but, could use a port scanner from another system.. (if you are talking TCP/IP ports)00:40
magical1Auzy: I borked something and no can access using https but not http ... new to servers00:41
magical1*now can00:41
AuzyIf its a server, do a remote port scan (just google port scan online)00:41
magical1okay00:41
DratonBeldar: yeah, i mean to be fair it did boot, just resulted in a corrupted profile because of hardware change so it wouldn't load a desktop00:41
Beldarah00:41
AuzyIf the port is closed, chances are, daemon isn't running, if its stealthed/dropping packets, its firewalled..00:42
magical1thanks, I'll give it a try00:42
chrisopraseHi guys, I'm trying to mount my ntfs drive with specific permissions(u=rwX;g=rX) and the option to change them later file-by-file to execute scripts. Right now all files are being marked as executables (which I don't want) and I can't change any permissions. My fstab options: noauto,nouser,relatime,uid=1000,gid=users,locale=en_US.utf8,dmask=027,fmask=037,permissions,exec;; options according to mount: type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,00:43
AuzyWhen a port is closed basically, it always sends back a RST (FIN?) Packet, so the other computer knows there is something there.. If you have a firewall, that is never sent.. Other way you can tell, is that if you connect to it in a browser, if you get the error page straight away, or if it sits there connecting..00:43
Auzymagical1: easier way.. From the server, telnet into the HTTP port, or connect to it using links/wget, or anything like that.. If you can connect, but cant remotely, firewall..00:44
magical1it says port closed00:44
p0wdermagicall:  sudo netstat -tulpn shows open opens i think00:44

b0n1hey there! How can i check whether a process is frozen?00:48
Auzymagical1: yeah.. so.. depending on what you used to scan.. try testing a port that you KNOW is firewalled.. If it doesn't say closed, you know the port is simply not running HTTP..00:49

Auzymagical1: Ok.. Then, you need to check your config..00:52
Auzygpled: When you say you can SSH in...00:52
Beldargpled, The channel would need some details to actually help, cause and effect, release, desktop...etc00:52

Beldargpled, Hard to really tell what window manager you did have lightdm is my assumption, and whether the gdm install was what caused this from your descriptions, however check the sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm notations in this link. http://askubuntu.com/questions/152256/how-do-i-switch-from-lightdm-to-gdm01:13

Left_Turnor is that an invalid option '+'01:14

ubottuScroll_Tro0L: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | GUI frontends such as Gufw also exist. | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo01:16

cthulhu336Hello Ubuntu chat group. I have used Ubuntu in past, finally reinstalled, and I love it more than I ever had02:09
Beldarkay______, winodws has a built in one time imager up to the pro version which has unlimited.02:10

cthulhu336I used to use the Ghost program to image a drive/partition02:11
kay______do I need a spare disk?02:11
kay______or can it crete a file on a disk02:11
Beldarkay______, You would use an external HD, it saves in packages just the data, it is at the bottom of the file history page.02:11
kay______what is the file history page? how do i access that. is that in drive properties?02:12

Beldarkay______, Type file history in the search, I have an added W7 type button on mine, if you can't find it ask in ##windows for direct help.02:13
Beldarkay______, Basically I'm just concerned your covered in case of any problems is all.02:14
kay______and i appreciate it. it is important to take precautions. I just thought this would be a simple install and it has turned out to be anything but. However, I am a trooper.02:16
Beldarkay______, I have seen people here back themselves into a corner with no fixes and spending days to fix if fixable and loosing the windows part in the process, leaving a unusual HD setup to just install ubuntu in.02:16
kay______well, my HD setup is now unusual02:17
kay______unfortunately02:17
Beldarkay______, Cool, most installations are fairly simple, personally I just clone all my OS's it makes iot an easy fix, there are other ways I just use this one.02:18
kay______do you not recommend ghost?02:18
Beldarkay______, ghost is a ms thing, I do use the windows imager for windows and clonezilla for linux.02:18
OerHeksghost is prop, i wouldd use clonezilla02:18
kay______and, should I do a system restore to restore windows to factory before imaging.02:18
Beldarer ghost is windows orientated anyway.02:19
AuzyClonezilla is great.. we use it all the time02:19
kay______i have to go to dinner, so this shall have to wait.02:19
AuzyGhost you MIGHT have problems these days.. Not sure how up to date it is02:20
Beldarkay______, If you have resized it and have the unallocated space I would image it like that, then you can restore and not break any othe OS.02:20
kay______i haven't resized it02:20
Beldarrestore id needed that is02:20
kay______i have two disks in the machine. 128gb SSD and 1TB magnetic02:20
kay______i plan to put ubuntu on the 1TB magnetic drive02:20
Beldarkay______, Ah that is a key thing is using windows to resize it's self to get the unallocated for ubuntu.02:20
kay______ubuntu is going on another drive02:21
kay______128gb is not enough for windows and linux02:21
Beldarkay______ Ah I see that now,02:21
kay______technically it is enough disk space but not as a practical matter without destroying recovery paritions02:22
kay______thanks Beldar I will return02:22
Beldarkay______, no prob02:23

baegleI'm running Ubuntu Precise with the 3.8.0-35-generic kernel. I'm trying to build a kernel module and it looks like I need linux-source, but the only source package available is linux-source-3.2.0. I have no idea how this could possibly be. Anyone know?02:29
Beldarbaegle, This a 12.04.3 install?02:31
baegleBeldar: it's upgraded from whatever the last LTS was02:31
Beldarbaegle, or is this a stack upgrade, or your install of 3.8?02:32
hayer_How can I mount a disk everytime me VPN connects?02:32
Beldarbaegle, When did you do the upgrade from 10.04, as each 12.04.1. 12.04.2, 12.04.3 was released they had higher kernels.02:33
baegleBeldar: ok...02:33

Beldarbaegle, You have 3.8 was that your install, or was added when you actually upgraded, the versions have a time release.02:38
glitsj16baegle: to build kernel modules you need the linux-headers... packages, not the linux-source .. so "sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.8.0-35-generic" should set you up to build the module02:38
baegleBeldar: I'm almost positive I explicitly updated the kernel myself via apt02:39

RobmanxI'm having a problem with ubuntu software updater... for some reason when it opens up the window is blank...02:44
glitsj16baegle: did you try to install the 32-bit driver thru apt-get yet? like sudo apt-get install nvidia-319-updates:i38602:45
hipitihopglitsj16, I did follow this to install and upgrade the ppa and rebooted but alas still not listed http://askubuntu.com/questions/131812/logitech-usb-headset-not-working-on-12-0402:45
BeldarRobmanx, can you run sudo apt-get update and pastebin it.02:46
baegleglitsj16: yeah, unmet dependencies. It wants to uninstall make, sed and others and replace them with th ei386 versions02:46
glitsj16baegle: in that case hold back, never needed to install both 64 and 32 bit nvidia drivers before, so i'm not sure02:48

Beldarravigehl1t, Installing kde and libreoffice are two different things, kde is the kubuntu-desktop is that the install you are trying?02:55
ravigehl1tBeldar: yep02:55
ravigehl1tBeldar: it has LibreOffice as a `metapackage`02:55
ravigehl1tBeldar: I don't want LibreOffice yet I need to roll with it02:56
hipitihopglitsj16, so just to confirm, only trace I have found so far is lsusb and in dmeg when plugged in02:56
Beldarravigehl1t, The description is kinda confusing you say your trying to fix a kde install and also install it.02:56
ravigehl1tBeldar: true. KDE is installed. There was an issue after installing "Blender 3D" where the screen, windows and menus are messed up. So I tried to uninstall KDE an reinstall it. That's when it began choking on LibreOffice02:57
glitsj16hipitihop: can you pastebin the output of cat /usr/share/alsa/cards/USB-Audio.conf please, so we can confirm it is in there or not..02:57
Barrin6ravigehl1t,  I made that mistake earlier. If you are new to linux, I would not touch desktop environments02:58
ravigehl1tBarrin6: I am not new to Linux. I have been using Linux for some time now.02:58
ravigehl1tBarrin6: Were you having issues with uninstalling KDE and re-installing it?02:59
hipitihopglitsj16, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6700927/02:59
Beldarravigehl1t, Not sure really but I have the feeling that Blender 3D is part of the problem, just a guess though.02:59
ravigehl1tBeldar: You are absolutely right!03:00
Barrin6ravigehl1t,  yea it just got messy and confusing03:00
ravigehl1tBeldar: Blender messed up with some core KDE packages. The mess was huge.03:00
Beldarravigehl1t, Is it possible to purge it?03:01
ravigehl1tBeldar: After uninstalling Blender 3D, KDE was left broken. I tried to re-install packages that had been removed by Blender. Thats when it starte to choke on LibreOffice.03:01

ravigehl1tBeldar: Blender is gone.03:01

ravigehl1tBeldar: The problem now is reinstalling KDE03:01
Beldarravigehl1t, What release is this?03:01
ravigehl1tBeldar: saucy03:01
glitsj16hipitihop: it's in there allright (line 47 of your paste) .. so the instructions on http://askubuntu.com/questions/131812/logitech-usb-headset-not-working-on-12-04 don't seem to apply to your issue .. only thing i can think of is checking on a 13.10 live-usb or dvd what the headset does03:02
ravigehl1tBeldar: The thing is..I didn't install Blender from a PPA. This was from the Ubuntu repo. So it should be a working copy.03:04
Beldarravigehl1t, heh, in a perfect world yes, not everything in the repos works in every desktop is all. I can't find a app list of a saucy kubuntu, if you find one you should be able to just load it technically.03:06

Beldarravigehl1t, where?03:08
ravigehl1tBeldar: you don't need a PPA for kubuntu.03:08
ravigehl1tBeldar: kubuntu is part of the Ubuntu repo.03:08
ravigehl1tBeldar: sudo apt-cache search kubuntu-desktop will give you what you are looking for03:08
Beldarravigehl1t, no, here is a deb download for the full kubuntu desktop. http://packages.ubuntu.com/saucy/kubuntu-desktop03:08

baegleby process of elimination, I say secondary storage a.k.a. RAM03:23
Beldarghs, dist-upgrade is a within the release upgrade and just okay's the additional, say kernels if that's what held. You do not want to see any packages still being held with a dist-upgrade is all, that indicates a partial upgrade possibly.03:24
dkogbaegle: if that is the case, I would like to understand how this happens.  Like is there something in fstab or elsewhere that make a ramdisk like that?03:25
Beldarghs, You might just run the update manager to see if you get a partial upgrade warning.03:25
baegledkog: Then you'll need to research the implementation of LiveCDs03:25
baegledkog: I would assume a ramdisk is created, I have no idea if fstab is used to drive its creation03:26

glitsj16!minimal | MarkDavies04:48
ubottuMarkDavies: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want.  The installer is text based (rather than graphical as used on the Desktop DVD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD04:48
jotterbot1234frazboyz: lol, just actually type your issue, people can help or not based on the content of your question :)04:48
needshelpHow can I enable the logging in screen in Lubuntu? Thanks04:49
frazboyzWell the issue is the mouse has a hard time left clicking. I can left click some things like the side bar applications but things like exit buttons at the top of windows dont work04:49
frazboyzAnd normal buttons dont work either04:50
frazboyzAnd i cant drag windows04:50
MarkDaviesthank you glitsj16, seems exactly as what I need (I want to run this sytem as a guest on my virtual machine and my hardware is poor)04:50
MarkDaviesAnd on a completely unrelated topic: do you experience some inconveniences using Mozilla in Ubuntu?04:50
Bashing-omMarkDavies: There is the "minimal install" only the core is installed and you install ALL else.04:50
jotterbot1234frazboyz: sorry to hear, the only thing i know of to help to drag windows is to hold alt and move your mouse near a corner of a window04:50

glitsj16hipitihop: ow okay, i'll check on the net, no need to reboot04:55
hipitihopglitsj16, so your still suspecting kernel level issue04:56
grendal_primeawww hell im just gonna reboot and pray for forgiveness04:56
glitsj16hipitihop: yes i do, perhaps also updated alsa04:57
grendal_primethere was nobody using the filer so it looks like it went down without issue04:57
glitsj16hipitihop: if you want you can check it on your 12.04 by installing the latest trusty kernel .. http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.12.6-trusty/ and download the first 4 linux-... debs from there04:59
K`zanHi folks, got a problem with /boot being full (or fills up with the latest kernel update is trying to install).  Can I just move /boot to the / partition and remove it from fstab?  TMIA!05:00
glitsj16hipitihop: after you've got them on your machine, open a terminal in that location and run a "sudo dpkg -i ./linux-*" to start the install procedure05:00
hipitihophappy to try as grub will allow me to select older one anyway (if you remember I have a nice list :-)05:01
Atomix26can I netboot an ubuntu installation onto an i5 processor?05:01
hipitihopglitsj16, is this the offocial way to do do kernel or is their some ppa way05:01
Atomix26*with05:01
glitsj16hipitihop: heh, i do .. grub should be fine05:01
AuzyK`zan: I'd imagine you might have some problems with grub/lilo.. You might need to make small adjustments..05:01
K`zanAuzy: Grub-update (IIRC?)05:02
hipitihopglitsj16, also just confirming, this seems to be 13.12 not 13.10 was that your intent ?05:02
develope2thellos my first time here using irssi!05:02
glitsj16hipitihop: i don't know of a PPA just for kernel updates no, what doesn't mean this is official, but it will work05:03
AuzyYou might also need to modify the partition in the grub.conf file (or whatever it is called) too.. However, it might also be full because of old kernels.. Check that first..05:03
hipitihopAuzy, that aimed at me ?05:03
Auzyno hipitihop05:03
glitsj16hipitihop: yes, that's is the latest kernel, what you had on ubuntu 13.10 is the 3.11 i believe, but it's just a test05:03
K`zanAuzy: grub.cfg, looking at that now, thanks much!05:04
AuzyWorst comes to worst K`zan , you should be able to fix it from a live CD05:04
* hipitihop downloads 13.12 kernel....05:04
mikeaanyone super familiar with nvidia and X servers?05:04
AuzyBut.. avoid doing it if possible (I know WHY /boot is recommended to be on another partition, but still have no idea why its still a recommended practice for home users *sigh*)05:04
Atomix26can I netboot an ubuntu installation onto an i5 processor?05:05
Auzymikea: Best to just ask the question..05:05
mikeawhenever I start a game (via wine), everything goes back to a single monitor, and the brightness/contrast are way out of wack05:05

glitsj16hipitihop: installing packages by means of "sudo dpkg -i ..." is quite safe, worst case scenario is doing a purge if it didn't work05:05

lickalottthe uninstaller actually completes the uninstall, but the message threw me a little.05:15

glitsj16cfhowlett: we were going to test the 3.12 on hipitihop's headset issue, apparently it isn't supported on the 12.04 kernels he has running and we tested on a live 13.10 .. with positive results .. just so you're on the same page05:34
dkogI'm trying to boot LiveCD 12.04 on MacBookPro5, and it keeps getting stuck with a black screen, fans spinning at max, and computer heating up for 10+ minutes05:34
hipitihopglitsj16, ok dkms status suggest we are all clean again, but not sure what state grub menu, default boot kernel is in....05:34
cfhowletthipitihop, hold off05:34
cfhowletthipitihop, I only run LTS so I'm on 12.04 ... uncertain what you'll face on 13.10 so best you ask someone with relevant experience05:35
cfhowlettglitsj16, when you rebuild grub, it'll display current kernel default05:35
glitsj16cfhowlett: i know, what is the problem you are potentially seeing?05:36
hipitihopcfhowlett, yep, I'm the same re LTS, that is why I am also on 12.04 till now. But we are trying the 13.12 kernel as per what glitsj16 said above05:36
ROPAkostkon there you are, Wnated to thank you for the help you gave me getting skype running again...twas 2 or 3 days ago. Not only got it running my my desktop...but in both laptops as well. THANKYOU!05:37

glitsj16cfhowlett: okay, i wasn't suggesting to hipitihop to upgrade to 13.10, just confirming that kernel solved his headset issue, thanks though for keeping an eye on things05:39

kay______Baldar, I have finally imaged my windows drive. and learned a lot in the process, especially about EFI and GPT.05:44
ROPAfrazboyz is that unity???05:45
Beldarfrazboyz, Have you rebooted after all the commands, it takes at times. This is just a test to see if this could be the problem, should not make it any worse overall.05:46
frazboyzPOPA, im not to sure sorry, i just got told to execute that05:46
frazboyzBeldar, i had to re-boot, it crashed ubuntu and there was no gui left05:47
Beldarkay______, Cool, I'm not your best help on the install, just a heads up is all.05:47
glitsj16hipitihop: i see that the headers for 3.12 are indeed not installed, something went wrong in that earlier step with the error on the 32bit package .. but in the meantime i see on http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite=default&section=all&arch=any&searchon=names&keywords=linux-image-3.11 that you should be able to get 3.11 from your regular precise repos05:48
Beldarfrazboyz, This was a broken install to begin with, and those are commands many have run with no problems and great fixes so it is a matter of finding why it's broken to begin with.05:48
Beldaris*05:48
glitsj16hipitihop: if you can double-check if you can get that through your precise repos that would simplify things greatly .. take your time to look at that, i'm not in a hurry05:49
scarin the middle of upgrading my 10.04 desktop to 12.04, my bluetooth mouse/keyboard have been disconnected and i cannot progress thru the rest of the upgrade. i've tried plugging in USB keyboard/mice, which are recognized by the system according to dmesg, but still dont let me move the mouse pointer or type....05:49
frazboyzBeldar, what do you mean by a broken install? It was a genuine version of ubuntu from the site, and i have re-installed once05:49
Beldarfrazboyz, Your pastebin stated intrinsic problems on this fresh install.05:50
efssdany kernel after .12 my usb mouse/kb both don't work05:50
glitsj16hipitihop: what do you use normally to add/remove packages? i'd say use the tool you're comfortable with to check on availability of 3.11 and we'll clean out what we installed to test .. are we on the same page on this? :)05:51
Beldarfrazboyz, A broken install is just a broad comment nothing to do with you, just following that a good install works.05:51
frazboyzOh ok, well how should i go about resolving this issue then Beldar?05:51
hipitihopglitsj16, no particular favorites, most guides show apt-get, sometimes I bring up synaptic05:52
nrdbi am trying to compile a package and I get the error message "'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.38.2, but GLIB (2.32.4) was found!" how can I fix this?05:53
glitsj16hipitihop: i use both too, so might i suggest you take a look through synaptic and confirm you can install linux-image--3.11.0-15-generic?05:53
Beldarfrazboyz, NOt sure beynond this, those commands should not have created a no gui, seems like a graphics problem as a guess, or a bad iso to start with, hard to say with very little info other than window buttons not working.05:53
* hipitihop goes looking in synaptic05:54

frazboyzBeldar, thats fine, but ubuntu did work in the live version running off a disk, does that help at all?05:57
hipitihopglitsj16, seems so, any specific one to use i.e. need to pick just linux-headers-3.11.0-15-generic or also the image varienat and there is also linux-signed-image variant fo that05:58

rabbit222well writing phone apps be cool06:02
Auzyrabbit222: Apps like Sabnzbd run in Python, and Blender.. Node.js is newish, but, to run a GUI, everything needs to run through your browser..06:02
glitsj16hipitihop: if that's done, try to purge anything you can find in synaptic related to 3.12 and paste the output of "sudo dkms status" again after doing that .. could take a few minutes06:02
AuzyPhone apps.. both can handle it via webbrowser.. But, for Android, you need their variation of Java (or a android specific library).  For iPhone, you need Objective C and a Mac06:03

hipitihopglitsj16, there are post-release updates variantas of both too06:56
hipitihopglitsj16, I'm not sure what the command line variants of the additoonal driver switches are, if easy to try, we can always switch back if you know how06:58
glitsj16hipitihop: ow okay, than i suggest installing the latest you can, to get the best support for the 3.11 kernel, to keep solving your headset issue while not loosing nvidia and vbox06:59
hipitihopglitsj16, so by latest you mean 319 or should I go 319-updates07:00
hipitihopglitsj16, and if we fail on reboot, is there is easy revert07:00
glitsj16hipitihop: i find the additional driver tool rather wonky, but that might be only on my machine, you can try that, we can always roll back when needed07:00
hipitihopso I will try the 319-updates and see, if I drop out I come back on on laptop07:01
glitsj16hipitihop: i'd go for the regular 319, and yes, when it fails just boot into an older kernel07:01
MarkDaviesdpkg-divert - is it proper for Ubunt (what I want to do is to modify GRUB priority table in order to enable XEN)07:02
chaotixkostkon, it still will only load pcsxwithout the game...  i am not sure what i am doing wrong07:02
glitsj16hipitihop: if you check after installing the 319 with "sudo dkms status" that is clean, there's very little chance you shouldn't have a clean reboot too, so do that and paste it here before rebooting07:02
hipitihopglitsj16, amazing how deep the rabbit holes run sometimes... and I thought this morning I took on trivial tech issue to plug in my new usb heaset :-)07:02
glitsj16lol, very true07:03
hipitihopappreciate all your time btw07:03
glitsj16hipitihop: no trouble, very good exercise heh .. sennheiser is fine equipment, i'm surprised it did this on your 12.0407:04
chaotixkostkon, even if i try it from the terminal...07:04
kostkonchaotix, you are trying to load an image file, right? iso or bin07:05
chaotixbin07:05
hipitihopglitsj16, urrgh dkms make also failed, getting details07:05
chaotixi did:  pcsx --cdfile /home/user/Games/PS1/tonyhawk1.bin07:05
glitsj16hipitihop: arghh, let's see what's going on..07:05
kostkonchaotix, using the -cdfile argument followed by the full path for that file?07:06

chaotixthanks07:07
chaotixhave you tried adding your emulator games to steam>07:08
hipitihopglitsj16, prior it said autoconf.h or auto.conf are missing07:08
glitsj16hipitihop: sounds exactly like the error you got earlier with the 30407:08
hipitihopsounds like it07:08
kay______okay. I've just finished my ubuntu installation, and the mouse still won't work. its a trackpad. what are the steps to debug this?07:09
chaotixsomsip, kostkon ,  its pretty cool...  i use xbmc, and steam big picture...  its great07:09
glitsj16hipitihop: that's why i asked for those ls pastes, to confirm both are there .. and they are07:09
chaotixsomsip, kostkon ,  thanks for the help07:09
kostkonchaotix, doesn't work here either07:09
chaotixkostkon, what doesnt work?07:10
kostkonchaotix, pcsx -cdfile FILE07:10
=== Mars is now known as Guest67461
kostkonoh its --cdfile right07:11
chaotixkostkon, yeah...  it turns out its:  pcsx -cdfile FILE -nogui07:11
kostkonchaotix, oh let me try that07:11
chaotixbrb07:11
kostkonthat works yeah, interesting07:12
glitsj16hipitihop: you still have the live 13.10 right .. so maybe reboot into that, take a note of the output of "dpkg --get-selections" and "sudo dkms status" on that and we'll try to replicate that as close as possible on your precise .. that's my take on this .. what do you think?07:12
hipitihopglitsj16, sounds good. do I need to do something here first so it does not try and boot into 13.11 ?  i.e. revert a little07:13
hipitihopglitsj16, , I need to pop out for 10 min, playing taxi, brb07:14
glitsj16hipitihop: yes, good idea to remove that for now, the headers too .. okay no problem, i can use some food :)07:14
PebkacJonesubuntu does not suck.07:14
glitsj16hipitihop: take care with that storm and see you here later07:15
chaotixkostkon, also, it has to be -nogui, not --nogui07:18

scipi0Hi! I'm trying to install windows on a partition for gaming, but I installed ubuntu along time ago and was wondering if it was possible to do this without wiping my hard drive. I know you have to install windows on a primary partition but I don't know how to reassign that. Thank You?07:28
cfhowlettscipi0, make a primary, install.  you WILL lose your grub bootloader as windows will overwrite it.  no worries.  fire up your ubuntu usb/cdrom and reinstall grub07:30
hipitihopglitsj16, back now.. so what and how do I remove before I reboot into 13.10 livecd07:30
somsipBlackkatt: how did you install it?07:30
Blackkattsomsip, sudo apt-get install lirc07:30
glitsj16hipitihop: make sure your precise is bootable, what does your present "sudo dkms status" look like?07:31
scipi0cfhowlett: wouldn't I lose all of the data on my ubuntu partition?07:31
cfhowlettscipi0, assuming you have unallocated free space, no.  If you DON'T have such free space, first boot your ubuntu usb/cdrom, run gparted and shrink your ubuntu partition so you can recover the free space07:32

cfhowlettscipi0, no apologies needed.  dual boot is a bit scary first time.  windows 7 or 8?07:35
scipi0707:35
somsipBlackkatt: is there any reason you would have .old files in there?07:35
hipitihopglitsj16, either way I assume selecting a previous from grub menu would work if current is borked07:35
cfhowlettscipi0, nice.  no uefi issues hopefully.  you should have 2 partitions for win7: OS and recovery.  make your ubuntu partition a primary and go to installing town!07:36
Blackkattsomsip, ive been trying to install from ubuntu software store before, am totally new to all this.07:36
glitsj16hipitihop: odd indeed, it worked for the 3.8.0-35 kernel but not on the 3.11.. which fixes your headset .. let's remove linux-image-3.11.0 for now in synaptic07:36
scipi0cfhowlett: how big should the recovery partition be?07:36
Blackkattsomsip,  first time i installed "infrared remote control" from the store i got a windows where i could config07:36

glitsj16hipitihop: indeed, just make sure that you boot into 3.8.0-35-generic if things go south and that should be fine, for both nvidia and vbox07:37
somsipBlackkatt: Which implies it is already installed...07:37
Blackkattsomsip, i removed it later...07:37
cfhowlettscipi0, eh?  no don't TOUCH that recovery partition for win7!  It's already good to go!  for UBUNTU, you need about 7 for the OS and consider adding much more for any data you plan to have07:37

ZengerAssuming I have a server from which users should download some files. Assuming it's located in US and I'd like europe users to download these files faster. What would be the better approach. use a cdn or a secondary mirror VPS based server in europe ? (sorry for asking in the wrong channel, if you can point me to the righ place that would be great)08:13
glitsj16hipitihop_: true, got a bit too excited lol08:13
hipitihop_glitsj16, but a YES re snnheiser08:14
glitsj16hipitihop_: so i guess all we need is the info on the installed alsa packages08:14
glitsj16hipitihop_: at least the 304 does show as installed, that's pointing too a succesfull build on that kernel, so we can try and replicate later on in your 12.04it has installed08:16

glitsj16hipitihop: correct, i just tested but it seems it is quite impossible to get you that alsa-utils 1.0.27 on precise09:02
hipitihopglitsj16, seems so, but 13.10 livecd also seemed to be happy enough with the open driver too, i.e i got nromal fonts and dual screen09:02
glitsj16hipitihop: nouveau gets better every time yes09:02
dilemahttp://paste.ubuntu.com/6702051/09:02
glitsj16at least when you're not gaming09:02
hipitihopglitsj16, so if that simplifies life, we can go with that too09:02
dilema@ Rory09:02
gamerboyyeah i success with runescape linux client, but it' so dark in it..  need to brightness it up or adjust gamma09:03
hipitihopbut that does not seem to be the key ingredient for the headset09:03
hipitihopglitsj16, ^^^09:03
Rorydilema: Do you have any PPAs added to your system? What happens when you try to install the libgranite2 package?09:03
glitsj16hipitihop: no, for the headset we must focus on something 3.11 or later, so 3.1209:03
hipitihopglitsj16, but if that simplifies our kernal install requirements then we might getaway with nouveau09:04
glitsj16hipitihop: have you tried the 3.11 kernel with nouveau yet on precise?09:04
hipitihopglitsj16, no09:04
glitsj16hipitihop: let's try09:04
hipitihopsure, still booted in 3.11 now09:05
glitsj16with nvidia-319?09:05
gamerboyi looked in additional drivers under software & Updates.. it say no additional drivers available09:05
glitsj16getting a bit confused sorry :)09:05
hipitihopglitsj16, no nvidia extra loaded at the moment09:06
hipitihopglitsj16, if I try 304 it fails09:06
glitsj16hipitihop: but the headset still isn't working i assume09:06
dilemaRory, i have one ppa which is for the elementary-tweaks09:06
dilemaother than that stock install09:06
hipitihopglitsj16, confirmed, not working09:06
glitsj16hipitihop: what is your present "sudo dkms status" ? would you mind pasting that again, i need a re-check09:07
hipitihopglitsj16, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6702072/09:07
hipitihopglitsj16, current uname -all is: "3.11.0-13-generic #20~precise2-Ubuntu SMP Thu Oct 24 21:04:34 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux"09:08
glitsj16hipitihop: thanks .. late elaboration, but it could be alsa that is making the headset fix instead of the later kernel .. hmm, i wouldn't know how to get that on 12.04 compared to the live 13.10 version, 'cause that seems to break sysv on precise if you do that, i've tried in a vm09:10
=== MomoNasty is now known as Momo|Off
hipitihopglitsj16, unless this solves an issue for greater good, i.e. helps others users, then is the easiest from me to upgrade to 13.10 ?09:12
glitsj16hipitihop: so that's why i can see only one other option: install the nvidia-331 from PPA (which should build with kernels 3.10+ all the way to 3.12) and hope it isn't alsa that is keeping you from getting the sennheiser going09:12
hipitihopglitsj16, willing to try the 331, how do I do that09:13
glitsj16hipitihop: well that should fix the headset issue yes, but only you can decide what you need in a dev box, and have backups etc09:13
glitsj16hipitihop: first purge nvidia-31909:14
hipitihopglitsj16, synaptic to do that ok ?09:15
glitsj16hipitihop: sure09:15
hipitihopglitsj16, done, dkms status no longer shows it09:16
glitsj16hipitihop: after the purge, do a "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates" inside a terminal, hit reload in synaptic and install nvidia-33109:16
hipitihopglitsj16, confirming I'm still booted in 3.1109:16
glitsj16hipitihop: yes that's okay09:17
hipitihopglitsj16, thought it was but just in case things starting to slip through as you get weary :-)09:17
glitsj16hipitihop: we will have to see what the nvidia-331 does on that dkms wise09:17

khaotixhello i want to ask you if i setup full disk encryption or /home encryption is it possible to reinstall a new ubuntu version and to keep my /home dir working with the new install?09:24
Rorykhaotix: Best to back it up, do the encryption, and then copy it back over from the backup09:24
khaotixthanks Rory so I must create a new account with the same credentials as the previous installation ?09:25
Rorykhaotix: No, you can just back up your home directory, create a new account, and then copy the files back09:25
Rorykhaotix: If the username is the same it will be easier09:26
Rorykhaotix: You'll be backing up your home directory contents unencrypted09:26

glitsj16hitsujiTMO: it does work on a live 13.1009:46
hipitihophitsujiTMO, works fine on livecd 13.1009:47
hitsujiTMOi sat the mention of 3.11 an nvidia-331 an thought you issue was there09:47
hitsujiTMOsaw*09:47
hipitihophitsujiTMO, we have finally upgraded to use kernel 3.11.0-15-generic with nvidia-33109:48
glitsj16hipitihop: hitsujiTMO: it looks likethat it might be alsa that is causing the issue09:48
hipitihopso glitsj16, I assume that eliminates kernel ?09:48
glitsj16hipitihop: yes i believe we tested that to its depts heh09:49
hipitihopglitsj16, if you are up for it, I am to go manaul build of alsa stuff09:49
hipitihopglitsj16, since you don't seem to need sleep :-)09:49
glitsj16hitsujiTMO: i can't find packages for 12.04 that could take hipitihop to the same versions as on live 13.1009:50
glitsj16i do :p, but i need to go to the vet first09:50
hitsujiTMOglitsj16: i would presume there are some dependency issues somewhere along the way09:50
glitsj16hitsujiTMO: indeed, sysv ones, so i didn't want to put hipitihop into those09:51
glitsj16so my last idea was to try a manual build of alsa but i'm not able to finish support on that, gotta go in 10min09:51
hitsujiTMOmy lazyness would just push me to upgrade to 13.10 rather than stick with 12.0409:52
glitsj16hitsujiTMO: sure, that's up to hipitihop .. i didn't even check if he had proper backups before going down that road09:53
hipitihopglitsj16, I guess we have confirme dI can run on nvidia 331 with latest kernels so I'm not sure what else I should be nervous about on this dev box... I know there are always devils in teh details09:53
hipitihopglitsj16, hitsujiTMO, I could always image this machine to external drive o-nite incase of catastrophe09:54
glitsj16hipitihop: for now, remember that you only have nvidia-331 installed on the 3.11 kernel, if you need to boot into 3.8 ones you will need to do dkms builds/installs for those, but i'm sure you can get help on that here if needed09:55
glitsj16gentlemen, i wish you goodluck and i'm signing of, keep well hipitihop .. 'till the next encounter here09:56
hipitihopglitsj16, will keep that in mind thanks so much for your help and patience today, I think I will image my machine tonight and we can continue tomorrow with upgrade from 12.04 to 13.10 if thats supported09:56

GLDNAPLit's in finnish but it's pretty self explanatory though11:38
chemist^GLDNAPL, does your webcam have an integrated microphone?11:38
GLDNAPLyes and it works11:38
GLDNAPLjust fine11:38
chemist^maybe it's set as default input11:39
GLDNAPLdetected by pulse and alsamixer, works in everything11:39
chemist^as long as it's connected to your computer11:39
GLDNAPLhow could i fix that11:39
GLDNAPLand i want my blue yeti to be seen on pulse11:39
chemist^in the configuration tab in pulse audio control11:39
RoryGLDNAPL: do "sudo apt-get install pavucontrol"11:39
chemist^you can set a lot of settings there11:40
RoryGLDNAPL: Run it, and then click the configuration tab, make sure the mic is enabled. Then go to Input Devices and set it as default11:40
GLDNAPLi have pavucontrol11:40
GLDNAPLyes but pavu doesnt detect my blue yeti11:40
GLDNAPLonly alsa does11:40
RoryGLDNAPL: Did you install pavucontrol?11:40
RoryGLDNAPL: Because if you didn't you don't have it11:40
GLDNAPLit's automatically installed on xubuntu11:40
GLDNAPLi think11:40
RoryGLDNAPL: Oh OK11:40
RoryGLDNAPL: Yes I think you're right11:40
GLDNAPLthis is getting very interesting... lmao11:41
SaberX01That's funny High Quality ... gotta go to AKG, Nuemann, Royer .. then you have some high quality :-)11:42
RoryGLDNAPL: I guess you could try reinstalling PulseAudio11:42
RoryGLDNAPL: sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio && sudo apt-get purge pavucontrol && rm -rf ~/.pulse11:42
RoryGLDNAPL: Then reboot and do "sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pavucontrol"11:43
chemist^or maybe try disabling your GPU sound card if you're not using it atm11:43
GLDNAPLjust curious... what does purge do?11:43
chemist^maybe it's interfering11:43
RoryGLDNAPL: Removes configs, even if you've modified them after installation11:43
chemist^it uninstalls11:43
GLDNAPLoh ok :)11:43

chemist^nashant i think it is possible to save your power settings as a profile and have 2 or more different ones11:46
RoryGLDNAPL: Not sure, try #xubuntu11:47
RoryGLDNAPL: In the meantime you can hit alt+f2 and run pavucontrol11:47
GLDNAPLyeah11:47
GLDNAPLstill not detected ;_;11:47
nashantchemist^: You sure? Where did you find it? Are you using Unity?11:47
afD2345GLDNAP: right click on panel and select something like "add applets to panel"11:47
chemist^nashant no... i don't like unity11:47
GLDNAPLyeah afd i know but its not there11:48
nashantehat do you use?11:48
chemist^i switched to gnome2 and now i'm using KDE11:48
chemist^and it's pretty much what i wanted/needed11:48
nashantmaybe you can do it in kde, but not unity11:48
chemist^it doesn't matter11:48
chemist^what GUI you use11:49
chemist^the applications are the same11:49
nashantyou sure? I can't find it anywhere in unity11:49
chemist^yes it can be a little more tricky to find stuff there, that's why i switched :D11:49
GLDNAPLi remember the good old 8.x-10.x when ubuntu had gnome11:50
nashanthmm. Well, getting a new laptop in a couple of weeks so I'll test out kubuntu then11:50
chemist^nashant, no need11:51
nashantYeah, I know, just install the DE11:51
chemist^nashant, you can install multiple sessions on your ubuntu11:51
chemist^yes11:51
chemist^nashant, apt-get install kubuntu-desktop11:51
nashantI suppose no harm testing it now11:52
chemist^if you don't like it, you can switch back to unity or gnome on your log-in screen11:52
GLDNAPLbut, do you have any more things i should try?11:52
RoryGLDNAPL: Did you try purging and reinstalling pulseaudio? Including removing the ~/.pulse/ directory?11:53
chemist^GLDNAPL your sound card...it's 5.1 right?11:53
chemist^PCI card?11:53
GLDNAPLyeah11:53
GLDNAPLxonar dg11:53
GLDNAPLrory, yeah11:53
Rorychemist^: The Blue Yeti is its own sound card; it connects over USB11:53
chemist^oh...11:53
chemist^so it's just a microphone? connected to a USB port?11:53
Rorychemist^: It's showing up in aplay -l but it can't be selected as a default device11:54
GLDNAPLin a nutshell pretty much11:54
Rorychemist^: Yes, it's a capacitor mic used mostly for podcasting etc11:54
Rorychemist^: It has its own DAC and amplifier for its headphone port built in11:54
chemist^hmmm...maybe you have too many sound cards running at the same time... maybe there's some kind of conflict11:54
GLDNAPLthe amplifier is crappy though11:54
Rorychemist^: The system sees it as a sound card with both input and output11:54
RoryGLDNAPL: It's worth it for the zero-latency monitoring11:54
GLDNAPLthats why i bought a xonar for 30 bucks11:54
GLDNAPLhmm...11:55
GLDNAPLi remember fixing this somehow like half a year ago but i dont remember how11:55
GLDNAPLafter that i've upgraded like half of the parts in my pc11:56
GLDNAPLlol11:56
RoryIf only ActionParsnip were here, he knows all the sound problems11:56
nashantchemist^: The thing I like about unity is the unified app icons on the left11:56
nashantmakes things feel tidier11:56
MrAlexandrohow do you list only files with a spesific amount of signs infront of the first .11:56
MrAlexandrofor example with 2 symbols11:56
GLDNAPLcan you contact him/her somehow? :F11:56
chemist^nashant, that's what i didn't like :D11:56
blinky_Hi guys, Got a triple monitor setup and trying to get the third working.  I have 2 running off my GTX560 and one off the onboard.  I had all three working one first install yesterday but today after installing the nVidia drivers for the GTX I only have two.  The onboard is not longer working or selectable.  Any ideas how I solve this?11:56
chemist^nashant, i admit...it looks kind of nicer but... less functionality11:57
GLDNAPLblinky, you have the latest drivers installed from console right?11:57
afD2345nashant: install xfce and add panel to left?11:57
nashantchemist^: Ha! Different strokes, eh?11:57
blinky_I have just installed nvidia-319 using apt-get11:57
GLDNAPLhmm...11:57
nashantafD2345: But that would have the unified icons11:57
chemist^nashant, strokes? :)11:57
GLDNAPLthose drivers didnt work for my 780 ti11:58
chemist^nashant, what do you mean by "unified" icons?11:58
blinky_which do you suggest?11:58
nashantchemist^: Different strokes for different folks. Everyone has their preferences11:58
GLDNAPLthe closed source ones from nvidia's website11:58
chemist^you have a little box in KDE "start menu" which does the same job as the dash/home button in ubuntu11:58
chemist^i mean... unity11:59
GLDNAPLwhich you have to log out to install11:59
GLDNAPLthose worked for me at least11:59
blinky_is that the .run files? kill lightdm and init 3 to install?11:59
GLDNAPLyeah11:59
blinky_will that allow for the onboard intel card to work again?11:59
nashantchemist^: the icons are grouped. So if I have 4 chrome windows open (no idea why I would, the most I ever have is 2 really) then you don't have to have 4 of the same thing cluttering up your panel11:59
GLDNAPLi don't know, but i think it's worth trying :)11:59
blinky_sorry, also how do I completely remove the current, is it "apt-get purge nvidia*"?12:00
SaberX01blinky_, SO the real question is, how do you rub both the Intel Driver and nVidia driver at the same time.12:00
SaberX01*run12:00
chemist^nashant, the same in kde12:00
blinky_yeah12:00
nbastinis there any way to use udev persistent net rules to match on pci device, and not MAC address?12:00
blinky_I presumed it has something to do with the nvidia drivers as the problem stated after installing them12:00
chemist^nashant, they do group in kde .. they do not pile up in your panel12:00
GLDNAPLsudo apt-get remove nvidia-319 && sudo apt-get purge nvidia-319 please someone confirm this... im a noob12:00
nashantchemist^: Really?? Wonderful! It's installing now, will see in a sec :)12:01
chemist^:D12:01
chemist^nashant, i can show you a screenshot if you want12:01
nashantI've read kde is far easier to customise?12:01
GLDNAPLxfce is the best of them all, admit it already!12:01
afD2345GLDNAPL: you only have to run the 2nd command12:01
nashantGLDNAPL: xfce is what I run on my home server12:02
chemist^nashant, it's the best for costumization12:02
GLDNAPLxfce is great for general use too imo12:02
GLDNAPLit's simple and clean12:02
chemist^xfce is fast12:02
GLDNAPLbrings me back in the good old days :#12:02
GLDNAPL:#12:02
GLDNAPL:3*12:02
GLDNAPLsorry12:02
chemist^yes...i like to run xfce on my laptop :)12:02
FloodBot1GLDNAPL: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.12:02
afD2345Xfce solves all your problems12:02
nashantchemist^: You can dress it up and show it off easiest?12:02
GLDNAPLi have a kick ass gaming pc and i still use it12:02
nashantdoes it....does it role play?12:02
chemist^nashant, yes... IMHO12:02
GLDNAPLi guess i'm different12:03
chemist^hehe i used openbox for a while12:03
SaberX01You probably need x-swap, bumblebee mesa-glx bswitch-dkms and god what knows what else,  way to complicated, just get another GTX and keep life simple ... lol12:03
nashantI've only ever really used gnome, xfce and unity12:03
nashantHad a quick look at cinnamon, but not a huge fan12:04
GLDNAPLsame nashant12:04
GLDNAPLwell also the one which comes with lubuntu12:04
GLDNAPLwhat's the name of it again12:04
nashantlxde?12:04
blinky_that would be nice if I could afford it.  Wondering why it works using the nouveau drivers though12:04
GLDNAPLi guess?12:04
nashantthink so12:04
chemist^nashant me too... i switched to kde about 4 months ago...and i still use it...satisfied12:05
chemist^and i did it because i wanted more costumization freedom12:05
SaberX01blinky_, If it was working why did you try to fix it?12:05
chemist^i was bored shortly... :D12:05
nashantWell gotta reinstall on a new laptop and my home server soon, so if it works well then it's going on both!12:05
blinky_The screen was not turning on during boot, I have to go into the setting and deselect it then reselect it for it to work.  The system was finding it without issue just not displaying to it12:06
GLDNAPLlxde and kde are as ugly as a potatoes dipped in shit12:06
TeraJLhi, i've inserted the usb wireless, ( ralink) , and i've updated ubuntu but now i get "wireless is disabled by hardware switch :/, i've tried rfkill, and i get soft blocked: no, and hard blocked: no12:06
GLDNAPLbut thats my opinion12:06
blinky_also one of my monitors has a 1440x900 resolution that ubuntu is not finding so trying to solve that12:06
chemist^TeraJL, try enabling it with your hardware button?12:07
TeraJLit has none12:07
TeraJLnever had, it worked when i had windows12:07
chemist^hmm...12:07
afD2345TeraJL: install Proprietary drivers12:07
=== erkules_ is now known as erkules
chemist^do you have a laptop?12:07
chemist^or desktop computer?12:07
TeraJLit's a laptop12:07
chemist^there's definitly some sort of button to enable/disable wifi/bluetooth12:08
chemist^maybe it's a combination ... FN key + F(something)12:08
TeraJLclicking the keyboard key it does nothing.. windows was installed in this pc and it was working12:08
chemist^do you still have windows installed?12:09
chemist^a friend of mine had the same issue....12:09
chemist^we worked it out12:09
SaberX01blinky_, sorry it's not worrking out too well .. If I put vid-card in a box, first thing I do is disable the onboard GPU  .. This clear far more complex than a standard Ubuntu issue, you need to work with the nVidia and Intel GPU gurus.12:09
TeraJLno, i've formated and installed ubuntu12:09
SaberX01*This is clearly12:10
chemist^TeraJL try rebooting your pc and enter BIOS, enable your wireless while there and then reboot it..... one more question...12:10
chemist^TeraJL, do you have a LED light showing if your wifi is turned on?12:10
GLDNAPLoh btw, i cant get sound working on skype at all now12:10

cloneGhello I am trying to recover an ubuntu dual boot windows installation. the pc has 4 hard drives: 1 sata, primary master primary slave secondary master and as a secondary slave a cdrom. windows is installed in the PM alongside the ubuntu's home partition. ubuntu system is installed in the PS hard drive the SM and the sata drives have nothing on them. grub menu appears when I set the PS as the boot option, but when choosing ubuntu on m14:01
cloneGenu it wont load, moreover I cant get a ubuntu live cd to boot, however windows succeeds to load in safe mode...how could I get the live cd to boot? I would like to use gparted to fix this mess or even reinstall ubuntu? thats why I am asking here for help14:01
dopiehey all14:03
dopieI have a question about symlinking...14:04
SaberX01cloneG, sounds like a Grub2 update is needed, but like you said, LiveCD preventing that .. just askign the obvious, you have boot from external and all that in the BIOS setup to Boot from CD/DVD ?14:04
SaberX01!detail | dopie14:05
dopieSaberX01,  i am :)14:05
dopiewriting as we speak14:05
cloneGSaberX01: boot options: 1: cd(not the ide one but another working sata) 2: floppy and 3: PS hd14:06
dopieWhat I have setup is this... in my app i currently upload images to var/public/images i also want those files that i uploaded to goto var/shared/images  because everytime i restart my app it deletes everything from public/images how can I do this14:06
dopie?14:06
MonkeyDustwhat's PS ?14:06
SaberX01cloneG, when you get to the BIOS splash screen, try to select the boot menu from there, and see if that will let you noot the liveCD14:07
cloneGSaberX01: my last try was to set the SM (with no system on it) as the third option hoping the grub not to interfere with the live cd boot but then it hangs with the ubuntu and the progress dots splash screen14:07
Kuro-MaiiViaNocturna85, it didn't change a thing...14:08
SaberX01cloneG, Grub shoulod not be in the picture at all wiht a LiveCD boot, as the boot never gets that far, or should not anyway.14:08

nubuntuHi. Does gnome 3 has an option to alert of window pop ups etc.? How am I supposed to know when a program has a new message or a new window without the task bar?!14:16

=== troy_ is now known as Guest42203
Kuro-MaiiViaNocturna85, thing is if I have it set to 5.1 and plug in the 2.0 set it still want's to play 5.1. if any speaker other than front left/right is addressed there is no sound. the other way around ( unpluging the 2.0 ) it thinks it should play 2.0 while it should do 5.1 thus jamming all the channels in the 2.0 spectrum.14:19
SaberX01_cloneG, You definately need to stay away from i686 anything, that's not gonna work at all.14:19
user007How to block traceroute command?? or How to stop accessing it??14:20
SaberX01_cloneG, if you can get the i386 server install, you cna add a lightweight desktop like lubuntu-desktop or xubuntu-desktop .. but Unity / Gnome3 not gonna cut it on a P414:20
nubuntuMonkeyDust, there's nothing there14:20
MonkeyDustnubuntu  then idk14:20
cloneGSaberX01_ error no human readable MCE decoding on this cpu type this first appeared when booting from live cd14:20
Kuro-MaiiViaNocturna85, your suggestion for pavucontrol didn't solve it. although the settings show 2 separate devices I can only set them as if it is one14:21
SaberX01_cloneG, like I said, try an i386 server CD .. that's you best shot I think.14:21

user007outbound..In case if you have answer for both then it will be good..14:23
SaberX01_cloneG, try taking out the IDE SM hd14:23
SaberX01_cloneG if you know when and what caused it, go back to that and add one at  a time.14:24
cloneGSaberX01_ that was my first try! but it never went back to the previous state14:24
cloneGSaberX01_ I never succeeded to load ubuntu 11.04 host...the only I got was to load live cd twice and windows in safe mode14:25
SaberX01_user007, You probably need somethign along these lines: -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type echo-request -j REJECT14:25
SaberX01_user007, But you need to research that a bit moire I think.14:26
SaberX01_user007,to see the current set of rules: sudo grep 'icmp' /etc/ufw/before.rules'14:26
user007SaberX01_ is it possible to provide few more information regarding this?14:27
Kre10shi. I was able to ssh into my remote ubuntu PC. I want to install a network printer/scanner and make a scan. what are the relevant commands i should be looking at?14:27
cloneGSaberX01_ what really bothers me is not being able to boot from the live cd...I miss Gparted and its comfortable way of dealing with drives and partitions...14:29

cloneGSaberX01_ I wouldn't mind reinstalling ubuntu. I just would like to keep windows14:29
SaberX01_cloneG, all easily done, once you get the CD working, that part is not Ubuntu issue, that be HW issue.14:31

SaberX01_cloneG, MonkeyDust The problem is now, he can't get the LiveCD too boot properly, it's a P4 system.14:35
Touhou11cloneG: Ubuntu is probably too bloated a distribution for your computer if you have a P4, I suggest Xubuntu or Arch Linux14:36
cloneGSaberX01_ MonkeyDust yeah I was willing to use gparted14:36
SaberX01_cloneG, MonkeyDust I suspest, the boot issue (from HD's) can easily be fixed with updating Grub, butya need a LiveCD to do that.14:36

SaberX01_cloneG, it may be, but you need a rescent ISO for this to be possible, workign from an 11.xx version is not worth the pain.14:38

Kuro-Maiib0x, you can flash you netgear with the tomato frimware15:15
b0xwell15:15
b0xthe host router isnt mine15:15
SaberX01_b0x, So you wwant to vreate a Hot-Spot Yes?15:15

b0xbut with WPA15:15
b0xi read that already15:16
b0x"Ubuntu can only create wireless hotspots with weak WEP encryption, not strong WPA encryption."15:16
SaberX01_Then buy a descent Router15:16
SaberX01_if you already knew it could only do WEP why ask a rhetorical question15:17
MonkeyDustSaberX01_  that's not nice to say :)15:17
b0xbecause its possible todo with WPA15:17
b0xand as i mentioned15:17
b0xthe host router isnt mine15:17
b0xi could flash any of the routers i have here with dd-wrt and be fine15:17
b0xbut that doesnt change the host routers firmware, which is restricted to wep in repeater mode15:17
Kuro-Maiib0x, you can buy a router and have it extend the signal form the one that isn't yours15:18
SaberX01_Again, Objection sir, asked and answered they would say in court.15:18
b0xKuro-Maii: how so? im in the routers config interface15:18
b0xif i enable the repeater functions15:18

Kre10sCheryl_c, text editor16:31
Nach0zfarblypoo: if you want to encrypt a file then I'd suggest actually encrypting either the input files or the output .zip or .tgz or whatever16:32
farblypooActionPainsnip: But I'm used to it and don't use it for much. What version are you running, and does the compress software for zip have encryption enabled in it?16:32
WalexCheryl_c: there are several ways... One is to edit the text files '/etc/apt.sources.list' or thos in '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/'16:32
Nach0zusing gpg or whatever16:32
georgeperkinsllutz: I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH as an environmental variable and it seems to have worked! Thanks for your help!16:32
SaberX01_Nach0z, Yeah, I trickle the updates in use rsync --bwlimit=1024 or whatever .. but yeah, still eats a lot of bits.16:32
WalexCheryl_c: several APT frontends will also allow you to add them with a GUI.16:32
farblypooNach0Z: are you saying zip and tar.gz files are always encrypted by default?16:32
wskyhey i just installed xubuntu with debootstrap, how to add ubdte notifications in it?16:33
WalexCheryl_c: there are wiki pages on the Ubuntu Wiki that explain it.16:33
Nach0zfarblypoo: no, I'm saying if you want an encrypted archive, then run the archive through an encryption tool16:33
Nach0zor, run the individual files going into the archive through an encryption tool. Get an unencrypted archive holding encrypted files16:33
farblypooNach0Z, Ok i see so you mean a rar or a zip file, with a password isn't enough to qualify it as encyrpted.16:33
SaberX01_No16:34
wskyudd update notifications*16:34
SaberX01_it's merely protested at that point16:34
wskyadd*16:34
SaberX01_protected16:34
wskydamn16:34
farblypooNach0Z: so what you're saying is I need something serious like Truecrypt?16:34
WalexNach0z: Rarrikins: 'apt-cache search apt cache'16:34
xwalkdschatzberg: I'm not certain on whether that's possible.16:34
wskyi guess update-notifier is running, hmm16:34
farblypooSaberX01: so what you're saying is that it is enough" Do you mean to say the file is protected or encrypted?16:35
Nach0zfarblypoo: I'd run it through gpg or whatever the tool is16:35
SaberX01_farblypoo, encrypting would be like: tar cfJ - some-files | openssl enc -aes-256-cbc -e > somefiles.tar.xz16:35
Nach0zfarblypoo: and having a "password" on it does encrypt it through the correct program16:35
SaberX01_farblypoo, then to decrypt: openssl enc -in somefiles.tar.xz -aes-256-cbc -d | tar -xJvf -16:37
zzzGood morning :) I have a question about Rhythmbox on ubuntu 13.10. When I try to close it out it doesn't close. I have to open the system monitor and end the task because it continues to run in the background. Is there a way that I can make it so this don't happen anymore?16:37
=== sysadmin is now known as Guest11660
RarrikinsSaberX01_: Thanks for the recommendation of apt-fast. It's at least trying several packages at once (still having troubles, but slowly getting there) when do-release-upgrade inscrutably does one at a time.16:38
SaberX01_farblypoo, It will ask you for a pass phrase that you entered on encrypt, but that passphrase is not encryption, the openssl -enc is encrypting.16:38

glamberthi, I've got 50GB on /dev/vda in a virtual machine.  I've just extended it from 5GB.  So if I do "parted /dev/vda" I get the disk saying 53.7GB and the partitions are in there as 5.11GB16:39
farblypoook i see what you guys mean, password protect and encrypt are different things. only with serious programs like gpg can you password protect AND encrypt16:39
SaberX01_Rarrikins, You can also go into Dash >> Update Manager >> Settings >> Ubuntu Software >. Download from and hit the find fastest mirror16:39
glambertI have /dev/sda1 as the primary ext2 boot partition16:40
glambertwhich is 0.25GB16:40
glambert/dev/vda2 as a 5.11GB extended partition16:40
glambertand /dev/vda5 as the same size but a logical partition16:40
glamberthow can I increase the logical partition to fill the disk?16:40
glambertthen increase the /dev/mapper/mydisk to fill that?16:40
SaberX01_Rarrikins, The Update manager will then try to find the best Mirror for your current location / BW speeds etc.16:40
SaberX01_Rarrikins, merely trys to do a Torrent type download .. if the mirrors are slow, so shall be the download.16:41

farblypooSaberX01: do you know of any tutorial that explains step by step how to password protect and encrypt from the terminal?16:42

farblypooSaberx01: thanks again :)16:45
SaberX01_farblypoo, and for PW say for like a ZIP file: zip --encrypt mysecret.zip supersecretfile.txt16:47
SaberX01_That should prompt you for a PW.. shiwhc you'll need to unzip the file.16:48
SaberX01_*which16:48
glambertMonkeyDust, no, because I can't resize the logical volume until the partition has been increased16:48
MonkeyDustglambert  backup and resize your partitions, is my advice16:49
glambertno need to backup as just a VM I can rebuild very quickly anyway16:49
glambertI'm trying to resize the partitions but I can't16:49
farblypooSaberX01: what ubuntu are you on? If you're on the GUI, and you visually select to compress a file with zip, are you getting a greyed out, and therefore selected, encryption checkbox?16:50

=== paddy is now known as paddy_
=== paul_ is now known as paulus68
SaberX01_farblypoo, The thing is, most folks, coming from Windows at least, pw protection is differnt in *Nix, as it's actually a form of encryption, rather than just adding an passphrase.16:50
glambertMonkeyDust, I have three partitions on /dev/vda; 1 = 0.00GB -> 0.26GB primary ext2 boot, 2 = 0.26GB -> 5.37GB extended, 5 = 0.26GB -> 5.37GB logical lvm16:50
glambertI can resize partition 2 but not partition 516:51
SaberX01_farblypoo, But the two are different things, although they share common tools to accomplish the job.16:51
llutzglambert: you have to resize partition 2, the extended because this holds the logical drive (5)16:51
llutzglambert: a logical drive can't be bigger than the extended partition it is on16:52
glambertllutz, ok, I've resized partition 2 to be 53.4GB, what is next?16:52
llutzglambert: resize/recreate the logical drive 5 then16:52
glambertllutz, can't do it via parted16:52
farblypooSaberX01: that might explain why my ubuntu asks for a password with compress by zip, and then the instant you start writing the password, below it seems to be saying encryption has been added, and it's saying it in the form of a greyed out barely visible checkbox16:53

farblypooSaberX01: I wouldn't know if openssl is being used on my lucid lynx. I am surprised though, that on the GUI, zip is the only one that has password and encryption allowed, whereas things like .tar or .tar.gz don't have the possibility of adding them.16:56
farblypooBut that can probably explained in that it isn't updated in any sort of way/16:57

SaberX01_seul, two options for you, use the 13.04 Mini ISO .. or use 13.10 server ISO which is also a minimal install without a desktop installed.17:00
xanguafarblypoo: you asking if you have security issues with outdated and no supported packages¿17:01
farblypooApart from the firefox from being stuck on version 10, lol... Yeah I guess I should really move on from this old ubuntu17:01
SaberX01_seul, is you use the 13.04 mini iso .. you'll need to do: sudo do-release-upgrade17:01

seulSaberX01_:  Is the 13.10 server issue more stable? With regards to installation. I am burning it from a Mac laptop btw.17:01
Picifarblypoo: it was released in 2010. Desktop releases then were only supported for 3 years. Supported In May of last year.17:02
SaberX01_seul, the server ISO are all I use, then if I want a desk top, I install say: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop17:02
farblypooxangua: As I don't use them for browsing much at all, I thought looking for something that might not have the latest hackers hacking away at it might be more secure. I always assume hackers can get through supported tech.17:03

SaberX01_Guest24877, It may be, I've never seen that cause issue, bu it could. With the server ISO, I think you can do the install without a Mouse connected at all.17:56
SaberX01_Guest24877, SRI,. you said PS2 KB via converter .. not mouse .. do you have a USB KB you could try17:58

Guest24877SaberX01_:  I don't, but I guess I could run down to school and "borrow" one, hehe. It might be worth a try.17:58
SaberX01_Guest24877, Yeah, I've not tried a real PS2 KB / Mouse in a very long time, so not sure, but that article seems to point in that direction.17:59
Guest24877SaberX01_:  But I mean, at the intital screen I can click around and it works just fine. It just freezez at the second screen!18:00
SaberX01_Guest24877, It's probably trying to map the KB or something, not sure mate, but try a USB KB and see.18:01

farblypooHey guys, I've established that the GUI in ubuntu practically equates giving a password to a file- when compressing it via zip- to encrypting it. Is there any way to know what encryption method it's using, whether its using things like sha256 or openssl for this encryption?18:24
BurritoWhat utility are you using to compress+encrypt it? Does it have a specific name?18:25

farblypooYes I realised that, but not being too bright I only realised it when you told me :)18:29
SaberX01_farblypoo, So to paraphrase your question, what encryption method does Nautilus use?18:29
farblypooYes18:29
farblypoowhen compressing18:30
Burritofarblypoo, I think your encryption method depends on the file format (whether it's .zip or .xz or whatever)18:30
BurritoI can tell because the options are [un]greying when I select different formats.18:31
UserErrorHow can I preconfigure localepurge so I don't have to select the languages on install?18:31

spearheadand LibreOffice has support for microsoft office documtents19:01
TJ-AltrortlA: The reason for saving MBR.bin is that when you install Ubuntu, it installs the GRUB boot-loader (by default) and that will replace the boot-strap code in sector 0 of the first hard disk. Sector 0 is the Master Boot Record (MBR) containing executable boot-strap code and the primary partition table (on BIOS/MBR systems). On EFI systems the MBR is not used. In that case GRUB will install into the UEFI EFI System Partition (ESP) at "/EFI/grub/grubx64.efi" w19:01
TJ-hich will be the first partition on a UEFI/GPT system. With EFI systems the Windows and Linux boot-loaders can co-exist so no precautions are needed.19:01

rajpsinghHey guys I made a burned an Ubuntu ISO to a disc yesterday, but when booting from, I can only get an option to install20:00
rajpsinghNo try from Cd option20:00
=== Guest97577 is now known as guivaldevieso
rajpsinghAny ideas as to what I did wrong?20:01
denysonique_spearhead: I think I will have to modiy unity's source for that. as something overrides the dconf settings20:01
spearheadrajpsingh: what iso did you burn?20:01
Aboodagreetings all20:01
new0i am using a PHP app to upload file to server, but my app have a group and once i upload my file it's locked. the only thing i can do is delete it with my user20:01
ses1984rajpsingh: i think depending on the version you downloaded, if you choose to install, you then boot to a screen that lets you choose to proceed with install or try ubuntu20:01
rajpsinghWell I used the BitTorrent download option, it's the 12.0420:01
rajpsinghI tried hitting Install20:01
denysonique_ses1984: you must be using some proprietary drivers20:01

denysonique_ses1984: anyway: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/multihead20:02
spearheaddenysonique_: not a task I would wish to undertake but if they are really that persistant about it then it is probably your only option...20:02

LordXe-gnujust logged into my 13.04 server and found on checking the logs (/var/log/auth.log for example) they're empty. It looks like they are owned by "messagebus:adm" with 0640 permissions... is it safe to make these writable by the adm group? is that the right solution?20:27
spearheadnew0: the chown command changes the owner of the file, in this case i had you change it to your username and your group so that you could see if you could open it...20:27
LordXe-gnugoogling around I've seen others with similar permissions issues, but the solutions mentioned vary20:27

ironfoot495how do you install webXvid on ubuntu 12.0420:36
ironfoot495there does not seem to be a way.20:36
new0spearhead, well, how can i put the owner of the file just like the folder's owner?20:36
spearheadnew0: yes, php expects the permissions to be pure octal thus the proceeding 0 to complete the number, most linux systems assume a 0 unless specifically defined...20:36
new0spearhead, and tnx for letting me play with that chmod :)20:36
spearheadnew0: will the owner of the folder change?20:37

new0spearhead, this is why few here advice me at the start to put my server on a group and add my user to it20:40
spearheadnew0: to be completely correct you should always set the permissions using all 4 numbers but you rarely ever change the first bit so you can get away with just doing 755 for example20:40
SaberX01_Jackie9, what is SSO?20:40
OerHeksironfoot495, dunno, try it in VLC ?20:41

ses1984i have a new install of 13.10 on a system with nvidia 8800gt graphics card. if i go to the additional drivers tab of the software and updates system dialog, it says no additional drivers available but that's not what i would expect. how can i get the nvidia driver to show up or install it another way--21:17
nashantSo nobody out there knows why all the api documentation seems to have vanished??21:17
ses1984actually i did try to install the nvidia driver manually, now when i log into ubuntu i just get a black screen and cursor21:17

ubottuAntivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus21:17
connSaberX01_ : Thank you anyway. I am no expert but I am using Linux for some years now. When I messed up my system I was sorry that I didn't know enough to solve problems more efficiently.21:18
=== Havenstance1 is now known as Haven|AFK
WeThePeopleraaa, yes there is, look for it in the software center21:18
nashantcheers Pici21:18
Blackkattspearhead, thank you for checking! i could be 100 that I did not see this driver before21:18
connSaberX01_ : So "Synaptic List" tells me which Kernels are avail (meaning safe to use) with my distro, right?21:18
cristian_cHi to akis2421:19
DF3D2anyone running linux here to mine? how do you check amd gpu VRM temps21:19
spearheadRaaa: http://librenix.com/?inode=2121:20
SaberX01_conn, Yes, generally speaking, if you use apt-get or Synaptic, that should be safe.21:20
pedrommoneis there a way to change a particular key bind on ubuntu?21:20
pedrommonemy keyboard layout is fine, but 3 keys are not right for programming, I use international layout21:21
RaaaWeThePeople, Which one do you recommend?21:22
Raaaspearhead, ill check out your link now21:22
connSaberX01_ : Yup, I know but I need to install 3.9.xx or newer to make it work. I've tried the latest that I considered safe which was 3.12.6 but my Grub just went crazy.21:22
connSaberX01_ : I think I'm left with a full system backup and installing the latest release :(21:23
connToo much work...21:23
