DHRSounds good.  BUT: you are running proprietary software and might hit a few snags.02:21

digitaldefectorDHR, are you suggesting that there is no solution? It won't work with out "gksudo scangearmp"02:22
DHRyou chould look at the permissions on the scanner /dev files.  The normal way is to automate that with arcane udev rules.02:23
DHRno: I'm not saying that there is no solution.  I would not know.02:23
DHRif the problem is permissions for the device, you could manually change the /dev/whatever file ownership and/or permissions.  That is likely to work.02:24
DHRbut you will have to do that again each time you boot.  Or write a script to do that.02:24
digitaldefectorDHR, I wonder if installing the proprietary program as root could have caused this.02:25

Mad3ngineeryeah could be.02:38
DHRI run a bind setup that I haven't changed in a dozen years, but really, I thought other servers were the way to go these days.02:38
Mad3ngineerwolfzrat: I use windows for most things (i am partially a gamer) and so I only use linux for servers02:39
Mad3ngineerhowever, I don't like how hard it is to configure manually and restart02:39
DHRsorry, server is used with two different meanings here.02:39
wolfzratso no one here knows how to open the full circle magazine02:39
Mad3ngineerDHR, I think bind is the best. having heard that it is the standard of DNS02:39
digitaldefectorMad3ngineer, what about steamOS?02:40
Mad3ngineerand it is extremely hard to package it with DLZ correctly...02:40
EsoRoticaTrying it myself wolfzrat02:40

Mad3ngineereh, I already bought windows a while ago digitaldefector02:40
Mad3ngineerhate mac, don't like dealing with ubuntu permissions for desktop02:40
DHRRFCs are the standards of DNS.  BIND is just one implementation (the first, I think)02:40
Mad3ngineerand I like windows overall, it's what I grew up on.02:40
Mad3ngineerhmm. I really just want to be able to link whatever server to my mysql server02:41
wolfzratn/m i opened it in utily02:41
Mad3ngineerso I guess doesnt have to be bind902:41

digitaldefectorMad3ngineer, I'm not sure how open it is. I do know , reading more news about it today, that it's fixing alot of stuff in Debian, mostly because Valve couldn't base it on Ubuntu. Because of trademark licensing on the Ubuntu name. I also found out that it runs on AMD and Intel now, and Alienware will be releasing a SteamOS console.  Everything that they're doing to fix and debug Debian is opensource.02:53

ubuntuaddictedhi guys, curious if anyone else has fullscreen games losing focus on you? It's weird because sometimes buttons will act like it's being pressed but it isn't. I am running XFCE with no composition or anything like that03:00
Mad3ngineermysql? check. OpenSSH? check. Apache? check. php? check. vsftpd? check. bind9 NOPE03:00
iampozSorry, not sure what bind9 is03:00
Mad3ngineeryeah that's true digital.03:00
Mad3ngineerbind9 is a dns server03:01
Mad3ngineerbasically i can tell the internet that www.(namehere).com links to this ip, and browsers can type www.google.com instead of an ip like 123.456.789.10103:01
iampozoh i see... I unfortunately don't know how to configure a server. technically my computer is a server, but I use it as a computer03:01
Mad3ngineeryeah. i host a few things on it03:01
ubuntuaddictedit's happening in Deadfall Adventures. My keyboard won't work all of a sudden and the guy in the steam forums trying to help me thinks it's becayse something else is grabbing focus03:02
Mad3ngineer(mine), but i want to set up a web server for simple things03:02
digitaldefectorubuntuaddicted, do you think that it could be notifications?03:03
Mad3ngineerhmm... maybe the game is lagging with controls?03:03
Mad3ngineerdoes it happen with all fullscreen games?03:03
ubuntuaddicteddigitaldefector, i don't believe so because there's no notifications when this happens03:03
ubuntuaddicteddigitaldefector, i don't even really know if this bug is related to "losing focus".03:03
Mad3ngineerexactly my thoughts... might be lag or the game might be derping03:04
Mad3ngineernot every game is perfect... even the most well programmed game can have really awkward glitches03:04
ubuntuaddicteddigitaldefector, i just know at times i'll be playing and all of sudden a key on the keyboard is stuck, so i'll be moving forward BUT not even touching the keyboard. Then other times the keyboard will become unresponsive, pressing anything does nothing. When a key does get stuck sometimes I can hit esc, then move the mouse onto resume game and continue normally03:05
Mad3ngineerubuntu do you have a wirless keyboard?03:05
ubuntuaddicteddigitaldefector, other times when a key gets stuck, hitting esc or anything on the keyboard does nothing at all, has no impact. it's really weird03:05
Mad3ngineerubuntuaddicted: wireless keyboard?03:05
ubuntuaddictedMad3ngineer, nope but good thought03:06
Mad3ngineeryeah. could be keys sticking. what brand is it? if it is logitech, i don't have a hard time believing that it is a problem with the hardware of the keyboard03:06
digitaldefectorubuntuaddicted, are you saying that you don't know how to kill the game when it freezes?03:06
Mad3ngineeror if it has that "made in china" tag on it ;P03:06
yangmwhat is the fastest file system to install ubuntu on? don't care about data loss.03:06
ubuntuaddictedi suppose it's just a bug in their port of the game because this doesn't happen in any other game. it doesn't even happen in Nordic Games other port, Painkill Hell & Damnation03:07
khazhykso uh, is there a way to pin an exec to the fancy side bar if it wasn't installed with a package?03:07
ubuntuaddicteddigitaldefector, no, i'm saying at times the keyboard either becomes stuck on a certain key OR becomes completely unresponsive.03:07
digitaldefectorMad3ngineer, I considered that as well? I think maybe using some compressed air might help.03:07
Mad3ngineerkhazhyk... dumb suggestion, but try dragging it? it has been forever since i have used ubuntu desktop.. also maybe try right clicking it maybe there is an option for pinning it03:07
ubuntuaddicteddigitaldefector, the guy within the steam forums seems to think something is stealing focus but i am not so sure03:07
Mad3ngineeryeah digital, try another computer, see if the keyboard acts wierd03:08
Mad3ngineerthen you can know if it is the keyboard or the computer03:08
ubuntuaddictedwhat is unredirect fullscreen windows mean?03:08

digitaldefectorDrGrov, Do you mean to customize it?03:46
Beldariampoz, Not really something I can help with, I just saw you earlier asking about the command line on this, I would run dmesg and pastebin it and look at it and post the url to it.03:47

iampozBeldar, those are the only two that seem to crash ubuntu 12.04. this started happening when I updated my graphics card GeForce GT 230M to the lastest driver for linux 64 bit from nvidia03:47
DrGrovdigitaldefector: I do not feel so productive with Unity as I intended. Have a lot of writing to be done the next few months.03:48

FrankDuxso no one can answer me?03:52
DrGrovdigitaldefector: Not too fancy about Linux Mint at the moment. Tested it briefly on a spare laptop but nothing for me really.03:53
ScuniziI just installed the x-swat ppa for updated stable nvidia drivers but something is preventing me from upgrading from the ubuntu supplied 304.xx drivers. Do I need to uninstall those first prior03:53
digitaldefectorDrGrov, Gnome Shell. http://ubuntugnome.org/ with extensions https://extensions.gnome.org/03:53
DrGrovdigitaldefector: And I can easily install Gnome Shell from within 13.10 without needing to reinstall?03:53
digitaldefectorDrGrov, if you have the time, you may want to check youtube out to see what some of the features are in xfce, or gnome etc. There's a few guys to look out for. Like Spatry or ohheyit'slou03:54
DrGrovdigitaldefector: I know XFCE but wonder, has it changed a lot in the past 2-3 years or so?03:55
digitaldefectorDrGrov, I remember reading that it's not recommended because of similarities in Ubuntu Unity and Gnome. However this was before 13.10.03:56
digitaldefectorWell that's a tough question. In my opinion the only thing I can say is they have a new application menu. It's called the whisker menu.03:57
DrGrovdigitaldefector: Okay, so Gnome Shell or XFCE would do the trick for me. Which is less online accounts based of the two?03:57
DrGrovdigitaldefector: Okay, XFCE has developed then :) I might test XFCE first then. Gnome Shell does sound more interesting though.03:57
digitaldefectorDrGrov, I'm not saying to install this distro reviewed in this link. But it does show you how much Gnome can be customized now. It's based on Ubuntu Gnome, but with updated PPA's for the latest release of Gnome Shell 13.10.04:00
digitaldefectorDrGrov, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPioG5F6wZg04:00
DrGrovdigitaldefector: Okay. I just do not like all the online accounts stuff, probably one reason I also have stuck with Unity thus far.04:02
DrGrovdigitaldefector: It feels like everything is integrated in one way or another, not really my cup of tea.04:02
ScuniziWhen there is an obvious upgrade for a package but when trying to upgrade apt reports that the upgrade is "held back".. why?04:02
digitaldefectorDrGrov, I'm not sure I follow you. Online accounts?04:03
DrGrovdigitaldefector: I mean all the unnecessary online integration inside Gnome Shell as an example.04:04
digitaldefectorDrGrov, I understand. But from what I'm aware of  is that this is only happening in Unity... You may be correct, and if you are, Then I would suggest XFCE.04:06
=== dhruvasagar is now known as dhruvasagar_away
DrGrovdigitaldefector: Maybe I have got Gnome Shell completely wrong though, I might be mistaken.04:06
DrGrovdigitaldefector: It might just be in Unity as you are correctly pointing out but there was some minor thing I saw in Gnome Shell though which made me opt out at the time being.04:07
DrGrovdigitaldefector: XFCE does not have any online integration like Unity?04:07
DrGrovdigitaldefector: Could I still get rid of Unity after if I liked XFCE more and decide to stick with XFCE only?04:09
digitaldefectorDrGrov, No not at all. Just so I know, you're not talking about online social media integration? I spend many hours each day reading about Linux, and I've never come across an article referring to online integration, in the manner of Unity. But extensions are integrated to make installation of them easier.04:10
DrGrovdigitaldefector: Yes, social media integration is what I mean.04:11
digitaldefectorDrGrov, You could. But it's a bit of a messy way to do that. But it's easier to do that with XFCE than Gnome.04:11
DrGrovdigitaldefector: I definitely want to get rid of all that social media integration.04:11
duped27DrGrov: it's here to stay.04:12
digitaldefectorDrGrov, You don't have to keep that installed. Or even activate it. Until you set it up, it's nonthreatening to your privacy.04:12

duped27digitaldefector: just being online anymore the feds are snooping on all your internet activity.  Heck they can even turn your cam on.04:14
DrGrovduped27: That is not the reason I do not want social media integration inside my OS.04:14
digitaldefectorp0wder, are you using Ubuntu 13.10? If you are, I had the same problem. It seems that the kernel in 13.10 doesn't support some of the wifi cards that worked in previous versions.04:15

digitaldefectorDragnslicer, I'm not sure how easy that may be. As easy as it sounds, when you install a desktop environment in debian based packaging, you don't have much control over which parts of the desktop you want to install.  Unless it's a third party app, like pidgin.04:20

DrGrovSo XFCE, then removing Unity.04:23
Bashing-omDrGrov: I have run 'buntu since 8.10, at 13.04 I went minimal with xfce4 as the DE, Much impressed !04:23
* ki7rw is hoping to get openvpn working someday04:23
DrGrovAny idea to get a newer PPA to get the latest XFCE instead of 4.10 from the official 13.10 repositories?04:23
DrGrovWell I could always install XFCE and just test it out. Remove it if not what I want.04:24
DrGrovAh, that I will do. Install and test :)04:24
duped27digitaldefector: TOR gives you a false sense of security. They really love monitoring TOR traffic. And who knows they probably already cracked the encryption or posing as a secure server.04:24
* EsoRotica finally got ubuntu installed ><04:25
DrGrovdigitaldefector: Or how about Cinnamon in 13.10?04:26
duped27I think ubuntu has internet install where you can pick what's installed.04:26
DrGrovdigitaldefector: That could be an option as well, right?04:26
digitaldefectorDrGrov, you can install yppa and search, or go to webud8. They have alot of good ppa's.04:26
DrGrovdigitaldefector: Yes, webupd8.com :) Always a good resource :)04:26

digitaldefectorDrGrov, Good question. It's available in Manjaro, so I would imagine that it's possible, to install on Ubuntu. Give me a second to search.04:28
DrGrovdigitaldefector: I found on webupd8.com the way to install Cinnamon.04:28
duped27It's a shame all those unwanted programs ubuntu is installing now. It's like buying a pc with thousands of trial programs anymore.04:29
DrGrovdigitaldefector: Not sure though it was that good advice, should not brake Unity but never too sure.04:29
duped27I guess ubuntu needs income to.04:30
digitaldefectorduped27, I'm not interested in this discussion with you.04:30
DrGrovdigitaldefector: This is what I found about Cinnamon. http://www.webupd8.org/2013/11/cinnamon-20-no-longer-breaks-unity-in.html04:31
WugI don't suppose someone here is a parted wizard?  I'm trying to get it to align partitions non-stupidly but -a opt is achieving nothing04:32
digitaldefectorDrGrov, Cinnamon is it's own desktop now, it is completely gnome free now. So it shouldn't effect you.04:32
Wugbrand new empty 1TB disk that I'm trying to get formatted as GPT04:32
digitaldefectorDrGrov, That's because it's not based on gnome anymore.04:32
WugI'm trying to stick a little grub partition in it (as small as will align properly) and then the rest of it one single partition04:32
DrGrovdigitaldefector: So that might be the best thing out there for me and my special needs? :)04:32

DrGrovdigitaldefector: Good :)04:35
DrGrovdigitaldefector: How can I get the recommended packages though when installing with a terminal and doing sudo apt-get install cinnamon?04:36
digitaldefectorDrGrov, I was going to distrohop to Cinnamon on Linux Mint. I however can't get my wifi working in any Ubuntu based 13.10 kernel. So I'm sticking for 12.04 for the time being. I did try it, on a live cd, and it's fast.04:37
digitaldefectorDrGrov, sudo apt-get -f install04:37
DrGrovdigitaldefector: Okay, I will do sudo apt-get -f install cinnamon again then.04:38

jason404Hello.  I have a client who has a Ubuntu server running quantal quetzal.  Support ends in April, apparently.  What can we do?  Can it be upgraded to a newer version safely?  Or does the server need to be rebuilt?08:32
iwantoskiI'm looking the find out exactly which version of a dpkg package is installed. "dpkg --get-selections | grep X" seems to only show the package, not the specific version. How would I do that?08:34
tasslehoffdoes no twitter client for ubuntu support tweet marker?08:35
KI7MTiwantoski, dpkg -s <packagename> | grep 'Version'08:36
KI7MTexample: dpkg -s gawk | grep 'Version'08:37
iwantoskiKI7MT: That output, could I use the exact string to install it again using apt-get or do I need to modify it?08:38
KI7MTexample2: apt-show-versions gawk08:38
KI7MTiwantoski, what do you mean by install again ?08:38
iwantoskiI.e. install it on a different machine08:39
kostkonjason404, maybe you could backup everything and then try upgrading to 13.10, i.e. 12.10 -> 13.04 -> 13.10 and when 14.04 comes out upgrade to that since it is going to be an lts release with 5y of support. if the upgrade fails, then you could do a clean install of 13.10?08:39
KI7MTjust sudo apt-get install <packagename>08:39
iwantoski(I want to make somewhat sure, thought a script, that I'm installing the correct versions of my LAMP)08:39
Unforgivenin ufw, how can i deny all ports except 80,22, and 443 ?08:40
Melb_Aust_I jusr uninstalled skype & I fixed the qbitorrent issue....thanks Microsoft! :P cheers somsip08:40
iwantoskiKI7MT: the first example produced the following: "5.5.5+dfsg-1+debphp.org~precise+1". Can I just "apt-get install php5=5.5.5+dfsg-1+debphp.org~precise+1"?08:40
KI7MTiwantoski, then check it before had with apt-cache show <packagename> and check the version on the other machine.08:40
jason404kostkon: Is it safe to do that?  Will the server still be anywhere as stable as an un-upgraded server?  The server is very important to my client and makes tens of thousands a month08:41
jason404kostkon: To upgrade once seems risky enough, but multiple time??08:41
kostkonjason404, then i guess a better course of action would be to wait until april and do a clean install of 14.0408:42
jason404kostkon: Yeah, I thought so.  Cheers08:42
kostkonjason404, 14.04 will be supported until april 201908:42

Rory!volunteers | ClumsyCriminal09:23
ClumsyCriminalThank you, Rory09:23
ubottuClumsyCriminal: The people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines09:23
ClumsyCriminalAh, I completely understand09:23
RoryWhat's the problem ClumsyCriminal ?09:23
ClumsyCriminalWell....this may be a bit difficult to give the details of, but I'll try09:23
ClumsyCriminalOK, so, I've had apache running well for a long time. I'm writing a PHP script now for a server that is only running PHP 5.3, and I was running 5.5, so, I installed a version management system, PHPBrew09:24
ClumsyCriminalEverything was nice, except that, well09:24
=== CyberJacob is now known as CyberJacob|Away
ClumsyCriminalIt changed me over permanently to their compiled version09:24
ClumsyCriminalAnd then ceased working...09:24
ClumsyCriminalSo, I have no way of reverting, nor can I get it to recognize anything I give it, such as ini directions, extensions, etc =/09:25
ClumsyCriminalAny idea? Or just a clue of how I can begin debugging this?09:25
RoryClumsyCriminal: Can you remove phpbrew?09:25
ClumsyCriminalWell, I'm not entirely sure how09:25
ClumsyCriminalIt's not an aptitude package09:25
ClumsyCriminalI had a very basic init script09:25
ClumsyCriminalAnd I went through it, and can't seem to figure it out09:26
ClumsyCriminalBut then again, I'm not 100% sure where Ubuntu gets all of the scripts it runs on startup09:26
RoryClumsyCriminal: How did you install it?09:26
ClumsyCriminalLet me make sure I'm not telling you something incorrect, one sec09:26
ClumsyCriminalYes, ok, all I did was wget the binary, copy it over to /usr/bin, and then run their init script09:26
ClumsyCriminalThe contents of which, let me see09:26
ClumsyCriminalThey were very basic, I'll summarize09:27
RoryClumsyCriminal: Could you reinstall the php packages from Ubuntu over the top?09:27
ClumsyCriminalYeah, it just exported a bunch of environment variables09:27
Rory!lamp | ClumsyCriminal09:27
ubottuClumsyCriminal: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process.09:27
ROPAthe function keys on my Dell 15R laptop do not control the screen brightness and it can't be controlled from the brightness control in the setup. I found an answer, which involves an edit of the grub configuration file, but it did not work. Anyone have any ideas????09:27
ClumsyCriminalRory, do you have any suggestions for how? The problem is that it's apparently running something at startup, since Apache's config files are not altered, I've checked. However, the served version of php is now 5.309:28
ClumsyCriminalI've tried simply rerunning the init script, to no avail =(09:28
RoryClumsyCriminal: what's the output of "which php" ?09:28
ClumsyCriminalThat's the funny thing09:28
ClumsyCriminalIt's 5.509:28
ClumsyCriminalWhereas Apache is serving 5.309:28
Rorythe output of "which php" is "5.5" ?09:28
ClumsyCriminaloh, sorry09:29
ClumsyCriminalNo, I was thinking php --version09:29
ClumsyCriminalmy mistake09:29
ClumsyCriminalit's /usr/bin/php09:29
ClumsyCriminalI believe...yes, it is09:29
FloodBot1ClumsyCriminal: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.09:29
RoryOK ClumsyCriminal if you make a phpinfo page it will tell you about the PHP Apache is using http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/how-do-i-test-php-installation-with-a-phpinfo-page/09:29
ClumsyCriminalYes, I have done so, and it's calling 5.3.09:30
RoryWhat's the path to the PHP binary Apache is using?09:30
ClumsyCriminalHow can I check that, please?09:30
RoryIf possible, could you share your phpinfo ?09:30
ClumsyCriminalWell, the phpinfo I have set in apache's sites-available is not the one being displayed in phpinfo09:30
ClumsyCriminalWhich would you like?09:30
Rorywhatever one is the result of a php page displaying the phpinfo(); method09:31
ClumsyCriminalThe one it's actually displaying is for ~/.phpbrew/. OK, shall I just pastebin it?09:31
RoryYeah sure09:32

ClumsyCriminalOK, one sec, I'm getting to it. Oh, actually, another thing I've tried before I do that is manually setting the PHP ini script in sites-available. And it displays the one I ask it to in phpinfo(). However...it still won't use the correct binary09:33
ClumsyCriminalOK, Rory09:35
ClumsyCriminalYou can find the contents of the served php.ini file here: http://pastebin.com/Rkx01i4009:35
RoryClumsyCriminal: OK can you make available the phpinfo html page? is this on a public-facing server?09:35

merandusi have no idea why it does that. i want to list my harddrives.09:53
jefersenhow do i install a github project?09:55
geirhajefersen: There's no one procedure for that apart from "follow the instruction of the README file"09:58
varunendramerandus, what kind of info do you need about your hard disks? Are 'fdisk' or 'parted' unable to show that? And how long did you wait after 'lshw'?09:58
merandusvarunendra: i waited for like, 30 seconds. i don't know how to list them with fdisk or parted. my VPS provider attached a hard drive, and i want to  make it into a partition09:59
RorySomethingElse: 1MLouy5U2y9Jc54knfCK1t8LXXJr9SeuzJ10:00
RorySomethingElse: But seriously, glad you got it working10:01
varunendramerandus, so is it a new hard disk that you want to partition?10:01
SomethingElseWell, it's progress, it looks like phpbrew is still interfering, but I'll bet I can figure out the last little bit10:01
SomethingElseAt least it's serving something correct now!10:01
SomethingElseAs odd as it is, it still has control of pecl10:01
RorySomethingElse: If you just removed the ~/.phpbrew directory, all those config files would be gone10:02
merandusvarunendra: yeah. my machine had a 20 gb, i requested more hard, and they added a new one, but i need to add it to the system10:02
RorySomethingElse: or just mv ~/.phpbrew ~/.phpbrew.old10:02
SomethingElseOh, just remove it and logout/login?10:02
merandusvarunendra: i was googling to m ake progress, but lshw -c disk  hangs on me10:02
jefersengeirha: it doesn't say anything about how to install it10:03
RorySomethingElse: Should just be able to restart apache "sudo service apache2 restart"10:03
jefersengeirha: just about how it should be used10:03
jefersengeirha: https://github.com/pkrumins/xgoogle10:03
SomethingElseSo, maybe you can educate me on something...all of those environment variables that phpbrew exported, they won't actually do anything until called by a script, correct?10:04
SomethingElseBecause I'm looking through the init script it uses, and it has a bunch of perl calls looking for those env vars10:04
varunendramerandus, lshw just lists hardware. If you are not very well versed with commands, I suggest you install Gparted (sudo apt-get install gparted) and use it to partition your hard disk. It is already installed on the Live CD/DVDs of Ubuntu10:04

cousteaucouldn't boot graphic mode; managed to figure out that I had to uninstall nvidia-304-updates10:04
varunendramerandus, and to list the connected hard disks, use either of these commands - "sudo fdisk -l" or "sudo parted -l"10:04
RorySomethingElse: You can view all your environmental variables with the "env" command; could you show me what the script is?10:05
varunendraoh, okay.. then I'll have to look back at the man pages of fdisk/parted myself, unless someone else can help with the commandline :P10:05
varunendramerandus, ^^10:05
SomethingElseSure, I'll pastebin it10:05
Sven_vBSomethingElse, env vars cannot be called, just their values can be read or set.10:05
Sven_vBSomethingElse, they won't do anything on their own.10:06
SomethingElseThank you, Sven_vB10:06
Sven_vBSomethingElse, however, consider that some shells do magic based on some env vars.10:06
merandusvarunendra: psudo parted -l works well it seems10:06

SomethingElseYes, I ran into that wall today, Sven_vB!10:07
merandusvarunendra: it shows me one disk which is vmware type disk, then there are 2 numbers, the first one is 20 gb and is marked boot, but the second one is not10:07

RorySomethingElse: It's that init file10:08
Sven_vBSomethingElse, startup mechanisms include /etc/rc.* and the various crontabs10:08
merandusvarunendra: just a sec10:08
SomethingElseHow was the init file being called? I added a line to source it from my .bashrc, but I thought that was only called when I actually opened a terminal?10:08
SomethingElseOr is a terminal opened behind the scenes on startup to run gnome?10:09
merandusvarunendra:  http://pastie.org/862005310:09
SomethingElseActually, I also commented out the sourcing, now that I think of it, and it still was running...so confusing to me10:09
RorySomethingElse: Honestly I don't know much about phpbrew, it looks like just an init script that will just write various paths to php.ini10:09
SomethingElseIt would have been so nice had the developers of phpbrew written in something to, you know, *undo* all of that10:10

Rorydiverdude: Are you connecting to the correct user?10:10
Rorydiverdude: ssh username@hostname10:11
diverdudeRory: yes i am10:11
Sven_vBSomethingElse, to see if those vars are set on the level of your window manager, let it execute sh -c 'env | sort | xmessage -file -'10:11
diverdudeRory: i have triple checked that10:11
Rorydiverdude: Can you show me the full command you run, and the output?10:11
RoryPlease paste the full output onto http://paste.ubuntu.com and share the URL in this channel10:11
varunendramerandus, not sure if anyone would believe, but my current speed is .8 KB/s (awesome gprs !!) :(10:11
SomethingElseOh, look at that. Xmessage, huh? Very nice10:12
merandusvarunendra: aww, no problems, mine is only 20k faster than yyou10:12
Sven_vBSomethingElse, env vars are forgotten when the topmost process that had them set, exits. an easy way to ensure that env vars are forgotten is to reboot.10:12
varunendramerandus, ok, opened up (finally). But it is showing only one disk, the older one ? So maybe the second one is not attached yet.10:13
SomethingElseWell, I think I should go ahead and do that. Unfortunately, it looks like my pecl extensions are all gone now. Hopefully the reboot will magic them back to life =)10:13
merandusvarunendra:  i can see three numbers in there, i think those are the disks? i mean there is three 20 gbs.10:13
SomethingElseOh it not good enough to just logout and log back in? It requires a full reboot?10:14
diverdudeRory: here it is : http://paste.ubuntu.com/6725814/10:14
Sven_vBSomethingElse, depends on the scope where the vars had been set.10:14
varunendramerandus, they are start/end boundaries. Look at the "size" column.10:14
cffWhy there is no support for ppm in Ubuntu version of avconv?10:15
SomethingElseWell, this has been a painful experience, but I think I'm a better person for it, so it's all for the greater good, right? Going to reboot now. Thank you, everyone!10:15
Rorydiverdude: What is the operating system of the target server?10:15
merandusvarunendra: 2      20.9GB  21.5GB  535MB   extended10:15
merandus 10:15
varunendramerandus, you have 20.9 GB main partition, and a 535 MB swap in extended partition. That's all there.10:15
diverdudeRory: fedora|610:15
merandusvarunendra: oh.10:16
Rorydiverdude: I don't know how to configure it, but you might need to ensure the user can log in over SSH10:16
Rorydiverdude: Maybe by default, users on fedora cannot10:16
merandusvarunendra: will this command show all available disks then?10:17
varunendramerandus, I believe so. Even if it is a virtual hard disk, it seems it is not yet attached to the virtual machine. Check "sudo fdisk -l" to confirm.10:18
merandusvarunendra: http://pastie.org/862008610:20
merandusvarunendra: what are those sda2 and sda5?10:20
varunendramerandus, sda2 is the Extended partition, which is a kind of container which can contain logical partitions. The sda5 is the logical partition inside it. The extended partition is part of the traditional (MBR based) partitioning scheme which can not have more than 4 'Primary' partitions, hence the provision of 'Logical partitions' inside an extended one.10:22
merandusvarunendra: wow. that made sense. thanks10:23
merandusvarunendra: probably i have to call them again, since the drive is not there10:23
varunendramerandus, yup, confirmed. The new disk is not yet attached. I'm confident with fdisk that it can show the attached disks even if they are raw (not partitioned yet).10:23
merandusvarunendra: thanks lots10:24
varunendramerandus, no problem :)10:24
varunendramerandus, one more thing - parted is more advanced than fdisk, and easier to use. I suggested fdisk only because I have more experience with it.10:25
=== Siya_ is now known as siya
merandusvarunendra: can you also make partitions with parted too?10:26
varunendramerandus, sure, that's what it is meant for. Take a look at "man parted", especially the 'mkpart' command of it.10:27
varunendramerandus, one of the best partitioning tools - Gparted - is just a GUI frontend of parted.10:28
merandusvarunendra: oh nice. sounds easier than fdisk10:29
merandusvarunendra: well, i think i'm done with this vps provider, so frustrated with it. i'm not a linux expert, just a dj trying to run a radio server10:29
varunendramerandus, look for others then ? Maybe ask for suggestions in a suitable channel?10:31
merandusvarunendra: yeah im gonna change it soon10:31
iwantoskiI'm trying to comment out a line with a matching word using see, but I keep failing the expected result: sed -e '/test-arg/s/^/#/' file10:39
iwantoskiI except that to put a # in file, yet nothing happens :/ ?10:39
=== Guest87119 is now known as r_lex
varunendraiwantoski, try "sed '/test-arg/ s/.*/# &/' - note there is a space after "..-arg/"10:46
varunendraiwantoski, I hope you know that it will show the change only in the stdout. If you want to change the file, use "sed -i...." - which is probably not a universal method, but works on Ubuntu.10:48
iwantoskihah, I just read that in the man .. ! My bad.10:48
varunendraiwantoski, man page for sed? Is it sufficient for you ? :P10:49
iwantoskiwell, sorry again. I meant from the help (-h)10:50
iwantoskiI'm new to this :s10:50
varunendraiwantoski, this is the best starting point for learning sed : http://www.grymoire.com/Unix/Sed.html10:51
newb_yo what is the best book to learn basic linux command line stuff?10:51
iwantoskithanks varunendra10:52
varunendraiwantoski, you're welcome :)10:52
varunendranewb_, learning linux command is probably learning bash shell. So look for that instead10:52
newb_do you have a book you recommend?10:52
newb_im new to CS and ubuntu, using it right now and want to learn more about how to do cool stuff10:53
streulmanewb_ just for ask, which version of Ubuntu do you use? 13.10 or 12.04 ?10:56
varunendranewb_, I'm searching the online html bashref guide. I don't know of a good book though. Although I'm sure there are a few others keep recommending here.10:56
knightshadenewb_: http://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashGuide10:56
varunendranewb_, this is the one I was looking for. So far working 100% for me : http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/bashref.html10:56
newb_thank you guys I have much to learn10:56
newb_I will check out these sources10:56
varunendranewb_, "Practice makes a man Perfect" :D10:56
streulmaI think to use 12.04 but I found it a little bit old10:56
varunendraoops! I scared them :P10:56

cean26994hello room11:02
cean26994anybody here11:02
cean26994i just wnt to ask what is the key for bios dor  ubuntu11:02
kruxthoonai, have you tried loading it modprobe tun11:03
chemist^cean26994, the bios key is always the sam11:03
chemist^same... no matter which OS you install11:03
cean26994What is it? im new in ubuntu :)11:03
chemist^it's not OS related...11:03
StarlightFX123Hi guys. Can anyone help me. I'm really in trouble.11:03
chemist^your computer manufacturer has set that up11:04
chemist^cean26994, type your computer model number on google and type BIOS key11:04
varunendra!anyone | StarlightFX12311:04
ubottuStarlightFX123: A high percentage of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.11:04
chemist^usually it's the delete key or F2 or F10 or F12 .. while you're computer starts to boot11:04
StarlightFX123I'm telling git to take my ssl-certificate. But when I try to do "git clone" I ghet the error message: "unable to access 'https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppetdb.git/': GnuTLS recv error (-9): A TLS packet with unexpected length was received."11:05

cean26994and i want to reinstall windows in it cos he's having hard time using ubuntu. the problem is i cant connect to the bios of ubuntu and it is the only OS in the laptop11:10
chemist^cean26994, you shutdown your dad's laptop, power it on again and immidiatly press the F1 key repeatedly untill the BIOS setup comes up11:10
chemist^cean26994 you're not getting things right now...11:10
hitsujiTMOStarlightFX123: that error suggests githubs cert isnt trusted. how to fix that i don't know tho11:10
chemist^BIOS is not part of UBUNTU!11:10
cean26994ok brb11:11
varunendracean26994, you don't connect to "BIOS" of an OS, it is the firmware program inside the CMOS chip on your laptop's motherboard. It has nothing to do with what OS is installed on the Hard disk.11:11
chemist^cean26994, BIOS is a thing that's installed on your laptop whether you install ubuntu or windows or nothing... bios is still gonna be there :)11:11
cean26994hello guys11:12
StarlightFX123hitsujiTMO: Has anybody an idea how to make the github-key trusted for my system?11:12
chemist^and you do not connect to it... you access the bios setup while rebooting your computer and pressing the BIOS SETUP access key11:12
chemist^which is F1 for your dad's laptop11:12
cean26994thanks. I am redirected to a black screen11:12
RoryStarlightFX123: Looks like a bug in pycurl, there's instructions here http://stackoverflow.com/a/13524391/73625311:12
cean26994Ubuntu 12.10 xxx-lenovo-g405 tty111:13
chemist^you did not press the right button11:13
Rorycean26994: Turn the computer off. Turn it on, and hold F1 until you see the BIOS screen11:13
chemist^or you were too late11:13
Rorycean26994: This is unrelated to Ubuntu, you are pressing this button before Ubuntu boots11:13
cean26994wait. thanks for ur patience11:13
hitsujiTMOcean26994: try reading the manual http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/user_guides/g410_g510_ug_en.pdf11:14
StarlightFX123Rory: No. It's not a pycurl problem. wget and curl are working.11:14
chemist^when the system is turning on, quickly keep pressing the F1 key.......although....on your screen there should be a notice somewhere saying "Press F1 to enter setup"11:14
chemist^or something else instead of F111:14
chemist^but yes i agree with hitsujiTMO ... try reading the manual first ;)11:15
RoryStarlightFX123: Well if those instructions don't work, then I have no idea sorry11:15
StarlightFX123Like i said: I'm using a self-signed ssl-certificate and I'm connecting over a proxy. But I don't know what's causing the problem.11:16
cean26994Im here on BIOS :)11:16
thoonaikrux: yes I tried, no result11:16
RoryStarlightFX123: Could you just use a different method like ssh instead of HTTPS?11:16
cean26994Thank you guys i want to install windows whats next in the steps11:17
Rorycean26994: Put your Windows installation disk in the drive, set the BIOS to boot from the DVD drive11:17
cean26994my windows cd is on the drive now what shoud i do next11:17
Rorycean26994: Then ask ##windows for more instructions11:17
chemist^cean26994 oh dear...11:18
Rorycean26994: (you're accidentally asking these questions in the Ubuntu support channel)11:18
DJonescean26994: I'm afraid this channel only deals with Ubuntu support issues, for more detailed help installing windows, you're better asking in ##windows11:18
StarlightFX123Rory: Then it asks me for the "passphrase" of the "pem"-certificate.11:18
cean26994I am all fine now. thank you guys :)11:18
StarlightFX123Rory: But I don't know the passphrase11:18
RoryStarlightFX123: OK, so you must have set your ssh key up with a passphrase originally11:18
cean26994Thanks for the patience and info :)11:18
StarlightFX123Rory: Yes. It's imported into firefox and works.11:19
chemist^cean26994, installing windows should not be that much of a problem, just follow the instructions ... but as said by others, this is NOT an Ubuntu related question11:19
cean26994Thank you and mabuhay from the Philippines :D11:19
pinguhi, i am trying to update ubuntu 10.04 server to 12.04.1 but running sudo do-release-upgrade in terminal gives me No new release found. How should I proceed with the upgrade?11:19
chemist^:) bye11:19
RoryStarlightFX123: Did you run the commands in the first link I gave you?11:19
thoonaiit irritates me, that I can use a vpn solution basing on tun/tap but can't modprobe it11:20
chemist^pingu, the right command is sudo apt-get dist-upgrade11:20
chemist^i think...11:20
StarlightFX123Rory: You mean the link from stackoverflow?11:20
chemist^first you update your package info with sudo apt-get update ... of course11:20
RoryStarlightFX123: Yes11:21
StarlightFX123Rory: It's definetly not a problem with "pycurl". Otherwise wget and curl wouldN't work, but they work perfectly.11:21
makaramy sound has stopped working, 13.1011:22
pinguchemist^: no, it is mentioned here https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/installing-upgrading.html and yes I did sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get upgrade and then I ran do-release-upgrade11:22
makarathere's now a 'dummy' interface ??11:22
makaradumy output11:22
chemist^pingu, try sudo apt-get dist-upgrade11:22
Rory!sound | makara11:23
ubottumakara: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.11:23
makarai set sound to headphones, accept settings, reopen, and it's back on dummy output11:23
StarlightFX123Rory: Sorry I lost connection.11:23
chemist^pingu, the first sentence on that link is: There are several ways to upgrade from one Ubuntu release to another.11:23
StarlightFX123Rory: So it's definetly not a problem with "pycurl"11:23
pinguchemist^: Are you sure it will work with ubuntu server? Won't dis-upgrade land me to 10.10?11:24
chemist^pingu, so what you were reading is NOT the only way to do it11:24
Neihi, can someone tell me if/where I can get the patches of http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/irssi as a series instead of just one huge [irssi_0.8.15-5ubuntu3.diff.gz] ?11:24
chemist^pingu, it gives you a little more info before you initiate the actuall upgrade11:24
GavinmondoHello Ubuntu11:24
chemist^so try it and see what will get upgraded11:24
pinguchemist^: ok thanks11:25
GavinmondoThis problem is so bad I'm almost forced to move all of my servers to debian11:25
GavinmondoHope this will reach someone at cannonical11:25
RoryHello Gavinmondo, what is the problem?11:25
StarlightFX123Rory: Have you any idea?11:25

Gavinmondoor cannonical does not care for the QA of their server images.11:26
chemist^pingu, actually you're right11:26
chemist^pingu, apt-get dist-upgrade will not upgrade your ubuntu to a new release11:26
NeiGavinmondo: you should contact your canonical support @ http://www.ubuntu.com/management/ubuntu-advantage , whining on IRC doesnt help11:26
GavinmondoNei: ok11:26
pinguchemist^: dist-upgrade gave me this output http://pastebin.com/b8LdXw7j11:26
chemist^you have to do sudo do-release-update11:26
GavinmondoNei: You do understand this is support for purchased support only11:27
RoryGavinmondo: It's a very annoying bug11:27
pinguyes i did sudo do-release-upgrade11:27
Beldarpingu, look up upgrade core11:27
GavinmondoAnd on the current stable ISO on the release.ubuntu.com it's still the borked iso11:27
chemist^pingu, type in: sudo do-release-upgrade | pastebinit11:27
chemist^and paste the output please11:27
=== paddy_ is now known as paddy
GavinmondoAnd you are telling me that I'm whining and plus I should buy the support just to talk to someone11:27
RoryGavinmondo: I recommend finding a USB to PS/2 adaptor, or an old ps/2 keyboard11:27
pinguchemist^: ok11:28
RoryGavinmondo: If your priority is getting it installed11:28
NeiGavinmondo: orr http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-server/daily/current/trusty-server-amd64.iso11:28

RoryThat is not appropriate for production11:28
GavinmondoRory: Why is it that the fix commited being changed to fix released is being done by a user less then 1 month old11:28
Neior wait some while longer eventually it will be fixed11:29
RoryGavinmondo: Could you link me to the specific comment in question?11:29
GavinmondoNei: Your asking people to use pre-alpha daily image of a future LTS11:29
GavinmondoOr just buy support?11:29
mjaykGavinmondo:  I think hes telling you to this is a question asking channel not a complaints channel11:29
pinguchemist^: here is the output http://pastebin.com/bVdj02jQ11:29
Gavinmondomjayk: It's a honest question11:29
bittyxHi! I can successfully mount a windows network share on my linux by mounting, for example, // to /mnt/foo. However, the machine at also has other shared folders, such as bar and baz. Can I somehow mount the machine itself, so as to easily be able to access all shares? Trying to mount just // doesn't work. Thanks!11:29
GavinmondoOn why the fix commited to released is being posted by a one month old account11:30
NeiGavinmondo: there is the bug, it has been confirmed, it has been fixed for the future release which hasnt happened, this IRC channel cant do much more ;(11:30
chemist^pingu upgrading can always bring something bad, depending on your current system configuration ... thought of making a new clean install?11:30
chemist^with the latest version?11:30
RoryGavinmondo: I think perhaps if you upgrade the system prior to installation, it might work?11:30
bittyxIdeally, I'd like to mount to /mnt/windowsbox, so that I can access /mnt/windowsbox/foo, /mnt/windowsbox/bar, etc. instead of having to mount each of those (foo, bar, ...) individually.11:30
mjaykGavinmondo: not really a question a community channel can answer more of a statement or a question for canon11:30
RoryGavinmondo: Boot from the DVD, switch to a different TTY and run "sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade"11:30
GavinmondoSo everyone here is a volunteer helpers11:31
RoryGavinmondo: Yes11:31
Gavinmondoand not affiliated with Ubuntu11:31
pinguchemist^: i have some services running that's why i thought of upgrading11:31
RoryGavinmondo: No more than you are11:31

ActionParsnipGavinmondo: email, post etc.... phone call11:32

GavinmondoI see sorry for causing the troubles ubuntu were free after all11:32
GavinmondoThis issue sure is difficult to overcome11:33
Neisome issues are pretty frustrating11:33
Neiespecially if they affect you11:33
RoryGavinmondo: The easiest is definitely to look around some cupboards or whatever and see if you can dig up a PS/2 keyboard11:33
RoryGavinmondo: Are you in an office?11:33
chemist^pingu i don't believe your services will keep running while you upgrade...11:33
GavinmondoNot at the moment11:34
GavinmondoNor could I come across one easily11:34
GavinmondoI've already tried the usual channels11:34
Gavinmondobut with no response at all11:34
RoryGavinmondo: I have a pot of PS/2 to USB adaptors, I wish I could give you one :P11:34
GavinmondoThanks for the thought11:34
GavinmondoJust sad really to see my LUG moving completely away for this11:35
RoryPost on your LUG mailing list ^_^11:35
GavinmondoThis was a desperate last ditch effort to contact someone from cannon11:35
GavinmondoBeing focused on ubuntu touch and the move to add amazon affiliate ubuntu to my LUG is now toxic to the LUG11:36
GavinmondoWhich is sad to see11:36
GavinmondoWe've been ubuntu fans since feisty fawn11:36
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: can you get the installer to where it wants input, then attach the keyboard?11:37
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: did you set the USB to be in legacy mode in BIOS?11:37
GavinmondoBoth yes11:37
GavinmondoNo good11:37
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: do you have the latest BIOS if your system uses one?11:37
GavinmondoThe latest provided11:37
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: have you tried resetting BIOS to default settings11:37
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: have you tried different USB ports for the keyboard?11:37
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: have you tried different USB keyboards?11:38
GavinmondoActionParsnip: This is a confirmed bug and it's for many USB keyboards?11:38
RoryActionParsnip: It's a fairly old, known issue11:38
ActionParsnipRory: I see11:38
RoryActionParsnip: It's actually a fairly embarassing bug11:38
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: are there any boot options you can pass in grub regarding USB?11:38
GavinmondoEnough to have few LUG's move away from ubuntu completely11:38
ActionParsnipRory: I can imagine, not seen it myself11:38
GavinmondoActionParsnip: No11:39
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: that's their choice, that is a freedom of the OS :)11:39

hitsujiTMOits there too ActionParsnip11:39
GavinmondoActionParsnip: Choice to gimp their server iso's?11:39
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: I dont know what that means11:39
RoryGavinmondo: You could maybe use the minimal or desktop images11:40
GavinmondoCannon has gimped their latest server iso11:40
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: what does 'gimped' mean?11:40
Gavinmondominimal is also problematic11:40
Gavinmondoand desktop editions are a no go for this is meant to be a lean server OS11:40
Gavinmondogimped = self harm11:40
GavinmondoNot gonna trouble you good guys on the community help11:41
RoryGavinmondo: Try the minimal iso11:41
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: you could install the desktop OS, then uninstall the X server and the GUI apps will fail deps and be marked for removal. You can then remove those with:  sudo apt-get --purge autoremove    then reboot11:41
streulmais 13.10 better then 12.04 ?11:41
GavinmondoActionParsnip: it would still keep alot of other packages still installed11:42
hitsujiTMOthe issue also affects the desktop install. makes it unable to enter luks password at initramfs11:42
ActionParsnipstreulma: 'better' is an opinion, 12.04 is LTS wheras 13.10 is not11:42
chemist^streulma, you should try it out with a live CD and find out yourself :)11:42
ActionParsnipGavinmondo: ALL the GUI apps will remove as the X server is essential for them all to run11:42
chemist^which one you like better11:42
GavinmondoRory: minimal has the same problem11:42
streulmaor is it already the moment to tryout 14.04 ?11:42
GavinmondoAs the launchpad bug also states11:42
Gavinmondostreulma: no11:43
anuvratI have two laptops both running ubuntu 13, is it possible to add one of them as a display to the other? I mean like a monitor connected via vga / hdmi.11:43

GavinmondoI do not know really11:43
GavinmondoBut for us we can't create a usb drive install to work11:44
GavinmondoThere is an issue where dd,unetbootin and several other usb creators won't make a usable image on USB11:44

GavinmondoAnd the one provided by cannon is horrible11:44
GavinmondoJust horrible11:44
chemist^Gavinmondo, what kind of OS are you trying to make on a bootable usb?11:45
GavinmondoUbuntu 12.04.311:45
chemist^you should use the "startup disc creator" in ubuntu, it worked ok with me11:45
Gavinmondochemist^: That software is awful11:45
GavinmondoBarely works11:46
chemist^define awful11:46
GavinmondoAnd also to note that won't work for ubuntu servers11:46
chemist^It worked for me :)11:46
GavinmondoIt's only for desktops from my experience11:46
GavinmondoIf I'm wrong I will give it a try11:46
GavinmondoBut there is a bigger picture to this11:46
chemist^well then burn a CD11:46
chemist^what's the big deal11:46
Gavinmondochemist^: The servers we're using doesn't have usb to CD11:47

GavinmondohitsujiTMO: For what exactly?11:49
makarayou're not short of options11:50

apb1963oops... hitsujiTMO beat me by that much11:55
Gavinmondodebootstrap .... googling11:55
GavinmondoNot a bad idea11:56
GavinmondoIndeed does sound like a better idea to KVM or bootstrap ubuntu's rather then to use it as a base OS11:56

varunendraedudx, if you think the keys don't work because of xbindkeys, just open the configuration file and remove the existing bindings that may be interfering. Or disable it from startup altogether.12:35
edudxvarunendra but I already remove xbindkeys, but what configuration file ?12:38
lilasory, :) im first time on IRC.... im try to find a solution for "Makefile:28: /src/Makefile_linux26x: No such file or directory" - im trying to instal  TG-3269 lan card...12:38
varunendraedudx, it is usually ".xbindkeysrc" file in your Home folder. But if you have removed the application, the configuration files and their effects should be gone too.12:40
hitsujiTMOlila: looks like an old driver module for linux 2.6. can you paste output of: lspci -nn | grep Network12:41
varunendraedudx, if you also installed xbindkeys-config, there may be another folder ".xbindkeys_config/speed_c/" in your home. The hotkeys saved using the GUI are saved there. Check that as well.12:42
lilahm... "lspci -nn | grep Network" resulted no output  *  result from lspci is "06:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.

compdocits unity13:56
david38400theadmin: what is LTS13:56

makaraBauer1, wouldn't you rather turn your desktop into a server, and have your laptops connect to services on the server?14:19
Bauer1no makara , I just tested X via SSH on localhost like you suggested, and its laggy - youtube was lagging for example.. its not a good idea unfortunately, we are not in the era of thin PC for media streaming yet14:20
hitsujiTMOpalmbeachgeek: btw, where did you get your iso from?14:20
palmbeachgeekhitsujiTMO from the site14:23
makaraBauer1, i don't mean you would X into the server. You would setup services like a proxy, file share, etc on the server. it would in fact speed up network14:24
hitsujiTMOpalmbeachgeek: can you md5sum it and make sure its legit. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes14:24
makaraBauer1, in short, I don't know how to solve your user-switching problems14:26
Bauer1makara: I actually tried that in the last year... I gave up on setting up samba to work easily from the laptops - it required using net use and specifically mounting the samba share with user/password of the linux box14:26

MilkkkyYes Im a bit nervous on Which partition to select as one Is a recovery partition, one an OEM partition, One an EFI partition15:25
MilkkkyI suppose I choose to partition the Biggest healthy Partition?15:25
Guest493ActionParsnip: worked, thank you15:25
RoryMilkkky: Generally, you would shrink the largest partition (the one with Windows on it), and then allow the Ubuntu installer to install itsself in the free space15:26
MilkkkySo Ubuntu will show me the sizes of each partition correct?15:26
Milkkkyi read sda1 sda2 sd3 sda515:26
Milkkkyif i remember15:27
RoryMilkkky: Yes, the LiveUSB includes the gparted partition editor15:27
RoryMilkkky: And the installer itsself allows you to resize partitions too, although it's easier to use gparted15:27
MilkkkyOk so then just pick the largest of the partitons15:28
MilkkkyI allready used the Volume option and shrunk It15:28
MilkkkyAnd i was actualy glad my touchscreen was working with Ubuntu Fine15:29
MilkkkyUbuntu Live that is15:29
RoryOK Milkkky so now when you select the installer there should be an option to install into the free space15:29
RoryMilkkky: Then it will set up its own partition in that space15:30
MilkkkyDont wanna partition the recovery partition15:30
MilkkkyI was gonna make my own partition with windows15:30
MilkkkyBut I think its wiser to let Live do it15:30

MilkkkyBasically straightforward15:32
MilkkkyMy Asus just has w wierd set up with two drives SSD and HD15:32

hitsujiTMOLuiCal: can you pastebin the full log. or is thats all thats in the log?16:04
MilkkkyI'm getting a wierd error when trying to install16:04
MoK_ hitsujiTMO: WOW, new user doesnt have the problem :)16:04
hitsujiTMOMoK_: so its some user setting or config file has gotten corrupt. have you installed ccsm?16:05
MilkkkyRory when I select new partition table it tells me all other parttions will be erased16:05
MoK_hitsujiTMO: Ok, No16:05
MoK_hitsujiTMO: should i?16:05
hitsujiTMOMoK_: no16:05
LuiCalhitsujiTMO: thats the url that appeared when i put pastebinit /var/log/syslog at the terminal16:06
hitsujiTMOMoK_: go back to your userand run: sudo chown -R $USER:$USER $HOME16:06
MilkkkyAnd when clicking install I also get "no root file system defined correct this from partioning menu"16:07
LuiCalhitsujiTMO: dont know if it is the full log file16:07
RoryMilkkky: Don't select new partition table16:07
MilkkkyI won't!16:07
RoryMilkkky: Have you already created a new partition to install Ubuntu onto16:07
hitsujiTMOLuiCal: odd. can you try: pastebinit /var/log/syslog.116:08
RoryMilkkky: If not, don't use custom partitioning, select the option for Guided partitioning / use empty space16:08
MilkkkyBut I am getting that error no root file system found?16:08
MoK_hitsujiTMO: Done, but didnt solve Problem with my old user.16:08
Xzeioni need to be pointed in the right direction. What should i be looking up if I want to get a python scrip to start at boot?16:08
RoryMilkkky: That happens in guided partitioning?16:09
RoryXzeion: you should look up "ubuntu run script at boot"16:09
hitsujiTMOMoK_: so not a permission error then. whats the output of: cat /etc/issue16:09

hitsujiTMO!upstart | Xzeion16:09
Xzeion'sighs..' sometimes the simplest answer is the best one.16:09
ubottuXzeion: Upstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/16:09
RoryHello Geoff1234316:09
MilkkkyI think I may need to make a partion with windoze16:09
MoK_hitsujiTMO: Ubuntu 13.0416:10
RoryMilkkky: select the option for Guided partitioning / use empty space16:10
XzeionhitsujiTMO, ubottu  thank you guys16:10
RoryMilkkky: the installer will create the partitions for you16:10
hitsujiTMOMoK_: sudo apt-get install dconf-tools16:10
MilkkkyBut why am i getting "no root aystem defined"16:11
hitsujiTMOMoK_: dconf reset -f /org/compiz/16:11
RoryMilkkky: Because you're using custom partitioning, and not defining a partition to be used as the root one16:11
hitsujiTMOMoK_: setsid unity16:11
RoryMilkkky: You can use custom partitioning and select a partition to use as "/" yourself if you want16:11
Ackisso far I've found at least two ways to load daemons (init.d and upstart), are there anymore ways? And is there an easy method to see everything that's being loaded, how it's being loaded, etc?16:11
LuiCalhitsujiTMO: sorry, it crashed again. It seems that only the mouse and keyboard stoped working, cause i could see all the chat discussions while it crashed.16:11
hitsujiTMOMoK_: after those 3 commands try and relog into your account16:11
RoryMilkkky: But the fact that you're asking what "no root file system defined" means shows you probably ought not to do custom partitioning16:11
MilkkkyI don't see the partion that is the free one...let me look I'm at it atm16:11
MilkkkyNo I realised that I'm selectin the whole drive16:12

hitsujiTMOMoK_: np16:17
Nicko_jhutchins i am sorry...it just i dint want to flood the chanel :P well as i said before i had a problem formating usb sticks...i mean i could format them via right click of gnome 3 on the usb stick at File manager16:18
MilkkkyHow big a partition is recomened?16:18
Nicko_but when the process completed...it was just unmount the usb volume16:18
knightshadeMilkkky: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTFS16:18
Nicko_and then it was like it never formatted when i used it again...with all the files still inside it16:18
robinmholtMilkkky: ntfs is 'NT' file system.  It is the filesystem type that Microsoft sets their partitions to when they are not formatted as FAT??16:18

ubottudn4: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode16:20

ahmadi don't understand16:46
XzeionhitsujiTMO, I did regester yesterday though..16:46
Diehardahmad: as long as you run from live cd, you have to mount your computers HDD in it .. you have to connect the drive to your live system to work with it16:47

rostamHI we have a few systems in the lab all have identical hardware (two ethernet ports) and software. I need to change the configuration of one the network interfaces (eth1). I like to do this as a deb pkg (I know how to create deb pkg) to automate the changes.  The patch will change some of the networking files. Any suggestions how to do this please? thx17:09
XzeionPici, becaue thats what i found first i guess ??17:09
Diehardrostam: why as pkg? you can script it and run in cron17:10
PiciXzeion: 1) upstart should already be installed 2) it is in the repositories.17:10
JoshStroblXzeion: Usually upstart is pre-installed. If it isn't for some reason, you should be able to just sudo apt-get install upstart17:10
JoshStroblYou don't have to compile it from source.17:10
PiciXzeion: You shouldn't normally need to compile anything from source.17:10
hitsujiTMOXzeion: are you trying to compile all of ubuntu from source? would explain why /etc/issue doesn't exist17:11
rostamDiehard,  I need to automate this task. Could the script be downloaded ad deb pkg?17:11
XzeionhitsujiTMO, I got that to work. I started in home dir before. Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS \n \l17:11
JoshStroblrostam - You could have a script that executes as root, uses wget to pull down a deb pkg, then use dpkg -i {file}.deb.17:12
Diehardrostam: you can automate download and run of the script :D17:12
PiciXzeion: Upstart is most definitely installed then.17:12
Xzeionok so apparently upstart IS installed and i am trying to do this the crazy hard way17:12

spearhead_HitsujiTMO,  that command won't generate url will it?17:15
JoshStroblrostam: Honestly, since you're mainly changing network configuration files, it'd probably be best to just have a script that wget's the config file and moves it to the appropriate directory. A debian package is a bit overkill.17:16
hitsujiTMOScunizi: sorry: dpkg --get-selections | grep nvidia | pastebinit17:16
hitsujiTMOScunizi: what gpu do you have?17:17

MilkkkyLet me try. I should get a dual boot option correct?17:19
JoshStroblahmad: To answer your question, no, you can't make a live CD for Windows. No matter the version.17:19
RoryMilkkky: Correct. What are you getting, is it just booting straight into Windows?17:19
RoryMilkkky: Yeah, boot from your other hard-drive, it's likey the Ubuntu installer put the bootloader on it. It is an easy option to miss17:20
MilkkkyI think in tried one let me try the other.17:21

JoshStroblNot really my area of expertise, I mainly deal with syslinux.17:22
MilkkkyNow there is no option for any hd. Only when I have the usb plugged in. It must be a bios issue....this is way harder than this should be really17:23

RazkinI have a question related to penetration-testing and I am sure most of you know what a 'backconnect' is, alright so now....can I turn a backconnection into a SSH proxy? like an SSH tunnel? Is it possible?19:14
JoshStrobl!alis | Razkin19:14
ubottuRazkin: alis is a services bot that can help you find channels. Read "/msg alis help list" for help and ask any questions about it in #freenode. Example usage: /msg alis list #ubuntu* or /msg alis list *http*19:14
PiciRazkin: pen testing isn't on-topic for #ubuntu, and I have no idea what a backconnect is.19:15
RazkinPici; if you don't know what a backconnect is, then you have no idea what pentesting is.19:15
JoshStroblRazkin: Please be polite, thank you.19:15
JoshStroblPici is right, Razkin, pentesting is not a topic that the #ubuntu IRC channel helps with. Please find a more appropriate channel. Thank you.19:16

milkkky2Ok I'm done with this.19:19
alansaulWe just want to tunnel /9012 to port 9012 in our server19:19
ValidatorianAnyone know how I could transform the following into an fstab line, so it runs when I start the machine? Everything I've tried fails, but the mount command works fine: sudo mount -t vmhgfs .host:/GitHub "${HOME}/dev"19:19

alansaulhitsujiTMO, By my webserver? like Apache?19:21
Picialansaul: anyway, thats normally done with a reverse proxy within your web server.19:21
robinmholtalansaul: Are you saying you want to redirect a unix domain socket to a TCP socket?19:22
hitsujiTMOalansaul: yes. that would be an apache httpd or nginx config.19:22
alansaulPici, That sounds interesting19:22
alansaulrobinmholt, Ummm, no I don't think so. I think our company firewall blocks any ports which arent 80 or 8080, so we want to allow access to others via a url19:22

buklemickbukmy wifi keeps disconnecting, im using ubuntu 12.04, any help?19:23
hitsujiTMOalansaul: main issue you'll run into is if the proxied site uses absolute urls or root relative urls. Then it's going to give you some major headaches19:23
alansaulhmmm, I'm not sure what you mean, so my proxied site just being myserver.com:8080?19:24
Aaronbuklemickbuk, are you getting any time off dmesg errors?19:26
jhutchinsbuklemickbuk: Not a lot of system software involved in that.  If it connects, the linux layers are working correctly.  If it disconnects, it's either a signal problem or the router/AP.19:26

robinmholtalansaul: Could you use squid with a redirection helper? http://wiki.squid-cache.org/Features/Redirectors19:27

yacc_Trying to install 13.10 onto a laptop using Optimus graphics (Intel HD4400+NVidia 750M) => getting a black screen when booting, any ideas?19:28
Picirobinmholt: a reverse proxy setup in the httpd is the standard way to do this, using squid isn't needed.19:29
Aaronyacc_, can you log in into a terminal?19:29
robinmholtPici: OK.  Never set that up before so I might need to learn some more. ;)19:29
alansaulThought this would be easy :( I'll look into reverse proxies, I don't even know what webserver we're using though! I've just been lumped with this problem sadly19:29
hitsujiTMOalansaul: if your site myserver.com:8080 has pages that load resources by absolute url, then they will be requesting form the old address not the proxied address and will therefore break. Also if it uses root relative urls, then it will also have problems as your site is in a sub folder rather than the root. the guys in #httpd may be able to assist if this is the case19:30
yacc_Aaron: only with nomodeset on the kernel.19:31
Aarondo that, yacc_19:31

jhutchinsbuklemickbuk: Well, look at the logs and dmesg and see if you can tell why it's disconnecting.19:33
buklemickbukjhutchins, i dont know how to check any of those, is there a command i can run in the terminal?19:33
jhutchinsvanea: Possibly #bash, but prepare to have your script heavily criticized.19:33
alansaulGrr this is driving me crazy, I don't even know the login for the original web server! I've only been given access to the servers the web server gets feeds from19:33
vaneajhutchins: thd19:33
g2mThis is a test for connectivity19:34
vaneajhutchins:  thx19:34
alansaulHowever, since all the ports are passing through one server, that seems to indicate that I need a link from myserver.com/9012 to myotherinternalserver.com:901219:34
robinmholtalansaul: Have you looked at something like: http://geronimo.apache.org/GMOxDOC11/configure-apache-httpd-as-a-reverse-proxy-modproxy.html19:35
yacc_Aaron: well, plymouthd drops out kind of a little early, so I see for a moment the text boot log (two red [fail] but it goes away to fast), then it switches to a black screen, C-M-F1 => gives me the ubuntu prompt.19:35
yacc_Aaron: As I have to admit having never got the knack for configuring WPA-PSK on the commandline, I'm a little bit stuck concerning access :(19:38
JoshStroblalansaul: If you're using nginx, you can follow some of the code towards the nginx.conf example at http://wiki.nginx.org/FullExample. You can define a "server" that specifically listens to the port you want and use location / and proxy_pass to forward to somewhere else (whether it's an internal I.P. or a different domain)19:39
alansaulI wish I knew which webserver I was using (at the moment I don't even have access to it via ssh!), is there any quick way of checking which web server is serving it so I can do some research prior to getting root access?19:41
yacc_AAron: First time that I'm tethering via Android USB->WIFI :)19:42

JoshStroblalansaul: Generally information regarding server type (whether it be nginx, apache, etc) aren't exposed in HTTP Response Headers. Probably best to ask someone internally.19:45
alansaulJoshStrobl, Okay thanks Josh, I'll start there. Frustrating!19:46
robinmholtyacc_: I remember having a problem similar to that many years ago with a Dell laptop.  I think I added 'nomodeset' to the boot command line and the problem went away, but it has been a _VERY_ long time.19:46
yacc_robinmholt, well, nomodeset allows me to access a text mode console.19:46

robinmholtLeft_Turn: Are you using a VPN connection or something like that?19:54
Left_Turni dunno.. B.T is my ISP.. and im on ethernet cable19:54
yacc_OerHeks, in the early days, a router fragmented packets as needed. Now adays, Path MTU discovery mandates "Don't fragment", and if something happens to eat the required ICMP error messages (as some people have done on their border router to handle ping amplifying DoS attacks, incorrectly filtering all types of ICMP messages), MTU path detection can be quite broken.19:55

DrGrovCould I get LibreOffice to work in Lubuntu?20:40
vanishingrallevondalle: yes?20:40
DrGrovgordonjcp: I do understand what you mean but unfortunately it is a money question at the moment.20:40
gordonjcpDrGrov: should do, but Libreoffice needs quite a bit of memory20:40
gordonjcpDrGrov: stick as much RAM as you can in the P420:41
rallevondallevanadis, sorry, sent it prematurely :)20:41
DrGrovgordonjcp: Yes, unfortunately it requires much mem :( But GOffice should do the job I hope?20:41
DrGrovgordonjcp: I think the P4 runs XP well, has 1GB or 512MB. Not sure anymore, have not checked the inside :)20:41
gordonjcp1GB ought to be enough20:41
tbounetbootin sucks, at least when you use it on OSX and try the USB stick on an PC :(20:41
gordonjcpXubuntu or Lubuntu ought to be okay on it20:41
gordonjcpif you've got 1GB go for Xubuntu, it's far less rage-inducing than Lubuntu20:42
DrGrovgordonjcp: Which is preffered of those two in your opinion? Xubuntu probably?20:42

rallevondallevanishing, crud, didn't work22:12
rallevondallestill had the usernames listed22:12
hitsujiTMOfpghost84: usually yes, but you may want to preserve the mount points within /mnt ... what are you using to backup?22:12
fpghost84hitsujiTMO: using duplicity to back up. How do I get it to preserve these mount points?22:13
fpghost84hitsujiTMO: also would you happen to know what these mount points are, why are they in /mnt anyway?22:13
zeproxirssi ultranewb here, trying to get adv_windowlist to work. result: AWL: Run adv_windowlist from the shell or switch to sbar mode. how can I get it to work?22:14
hitsujiTMOfpghost84: unfortunately i'm not familiar with duplicity. it may have some option like --one-file-system what will allow you to add any folder, but not include other filesystems with that folder.    any mountpoint in /mnt would be set by you. its the folder where you add permanent mounts for other drives.22:16
fpghost84hitsujiTMO: currently the method I use to backup `/` is  -"-exclude- globbing-filelist" to simply exclude dir like /proc and /dev and so forth, but it means it does not retain even the empty directories like /proc, I have to mkdir them back after the restore....22:17
fpghost84hitsujiTMO: I definitely have not added the boot-save or BootInfo mnt points in /mnt, strange, I think it must be a system thing22:18
hitsujiTMOfpghost84: try --exclude-other-filesystems instead22:19
rallevondallevanishing, okay, no go unfortunately22:20
rallevondalleI can live with this though :)22:20
fpghost84hitsujiTMO: I had looked into that, but I believe it also does not include the other filesystem empty directories themselves like /proc , at least according to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/duplicity/+bug/77505922:20

vanishingrallevondalle: user list is still there?22:21
hitsujiTMOfpghost84: ahh, i see, its ignoring the mountpoints too22:21
fpghost84hitsujiTMO: is there not a simpler way, naievely, something like --exclude /proc/* to only exclude stuff inside, but maintain directory structure...22:22

rallevondalletried to change the auto-login to "rallevondalle", the new user. Which did open up a new user. But it didn't seem to work as it should?22:22
rallevondallevanishing, restarted my computer22:23
hitsujiTMOfpghost84: not seeing anything in the man that you haven't already tried22:23
fpghost84hitsujiTMO: could this kind of exclusion be done with plain old tar? (without using one file system that is)...I thought it might be just some kind of globbing command I was unware of perhaps...not sure...Then maybe it would also work for duplicitiy22:25
vanishingrallevondalle: can you pastebin both /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and /etc/fstab22:25
rallevondallevanishing, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6729227/22:26
hitsujiTMOfpghost84: tar has the --one-file-system option22:26
fpghost84hitsujiTMO: yeah, I know it can be done that way, but surely there is a way to manually exclude directory contents, but not directory itself. Again, very naively I would have guessed something like "--exclude /dir/*"22:27
hitsujiTMOfpghost84: tar also has a number of exclude options, including --exclude=PATTERN22:27
RandomStrayCatCan someone help with partition tables?22:27
fpghost84hitsujiTMO: Ah, some maybe PATTERN is the key here22:27

fartfaceSo I've got a single account on Ubuntu 12.04.03, administrator, and I've just changed the password using "passwd" in terminal.  Now, whenever I try to enter a sudo command, it says my password is incorrect, whether I use the new, or the old password.  Any ideas?22:32

ubottuRandomStrayCat: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."22:32
RandomStrayCatSo, I've been trying to 'dd' a freebsd .img stick for two days: here is what I got... sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb bs=1M  .....(md5sum if good) ........ sudo dd if=FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE-i386-memstick.img of=/dev/sdb bs=64k conv=sync .... (boots fine with a xubuntu usb) .... (invalid partition table for the freebsd usb though???)22:33

hitsujiTMORandomStrayCat: sudo dd if=FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE-i386-memstick.img of=/dev/sdb on its own should work. if not then its an issue with the free bsd image itself22:36

vanishingrallevondalle: ok, add this uuid entry to fstab, similar to the others, give it a mount point like /media/WOW22:39
k1l_wolfzrat: #ubuntu-touch  or #ubuntu-arm are the right channels for that issue22:40
RandomStrayCathitsuji: I know, that is the problem :/   Maybe, i'll run a vm of free bsd and try 'dd' -- even though in theory that shouldn't make a difference. Before I do that though, is there a way to tell if FreeBSD setup the partition table is invalid (it is an older machine).22:40

DrGrovI am now sitting at my father's place. The issue is that I can not boot from the DVD drive. I have a USB stick though which I thought I would put Lubuntu 12.04 on. Can I do that in Windows XP easily?22:43

DrGrovhitsujiTMO: I have no Linux live usb at hand. Or how do you mean?22:44
fpghost84hitsujiTMO: yup :). Still confused about the boot-sav and BootInfo in /mnt though, they are definitely not my own mount points, yet each contains empty directories my the sbd1,2,3...partitions to be mounted into....Googling did not shed any light either...hmm22:44
hitsujiTMODrGrov: http://www.linuxliveusb.com/22:45

mojtabagordonjcp: Do you know how can I use for loop?22:59
gordonjcpmojtaba: not offhand, probably something like "for i in *.mp3; do cat $i >> out.mp3; done;22:59
mojtabagordonjcp: The problem is that, they must be combined based on their first three digits.23:00
mojtabagordonjcp: Do you know how can I use regexp?23:01
DrGrovI wonder though, could it be that the system is restricting the DVD drive to work? It seems to read the DVD, but nothing happens. Can that work in Lubuntu still somehow but not in XP?23:01
RandomStrayCatDrGov: How are you looking to loop. I know on the last three digits? But will it be like23:02
RandomStrayCat001, 002 ,00323:02
RandomStrayCatthen 004, 005 006?23:03
DrGrovRandomStrayCat: How do you mean?23:03
RandomStrayCatWhen you are looping the function, will the first round be files 001 002 003, the second round files 004 005 006?23:04
DrGrovRandomStrayCat: It is strange that the DVD drive is not working at all in XP, just tells me to insert the DVD in drive. Can that somehow be rectified in Lubuntu and it just will work?23:04
bekksDrGrov: No. Ubuntu will not magically heal your hardware.23:04
RandomStrayCatDrGove: ^agreed, check to make sure it is on master on not slave :3.23:05

RandomStrayCatmaster/slave isn't the problem then23:05
DrGrovbekks: The DVD is not broken, just burned it 25 minutes ago on my own Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit.23:05
