Gr4cchusand when i go to look at my files through the gui, it still shows the drive.04:55
oddisayGr4cchus, are you trying to boot from the USB or something?04:55
Gr4cchusno im just trying to manually mount it, and then unmount it is all04:55
oddisayI see.04:56
oddisayWhy don't you just unplug it?04:56
Gr4cchuscause its to easy and learning terminal is to fun, plus if u run a server edition u dont get easy mode.04:57
Gr4cchusfrom my understanding there is the  device and the mount point, maybe if i try the other it will work? otherwise maybe the automount feature is causing some sort of conflict04:58
oddisayHmm.. yes.. interesting.04:58
oddisaySure, make sure you are manually unmounting the correct media device from your Terminal.04:58
Gr4cchusim pretty confident i did cause when i sudo fdisk -l i find the /dev/sdb1 which is formatted fat32 and is usually the usb drive location or w/e05:00

oddisaySo when you unmount it via Terminal, the USB and its files are still accessible via Nautilus?05:02
oddisayWhat happens if you unmount it using the GUI?05:02
Gr4cchusmaybe i did it correctly, maybe the problem is with the gui itself, cause when i go to select it with the file manager or w/e and select it, it seems to then be mounted again cause after i selected it i did a ls on /media/username and then it showed again05:02
oddisayThat's probably it.05:03
oddisayMaybe try closing the current file manager window and then open a new one and see what happens.05:03
bfi1714what's the shortcut for the terminal on mint?05:04
oddisayEven though you unmounted the USB, I guess Ubuntu still detects that it is plugged in and can, therefore, re-mount it.05:04
oddisaybfi1714, I think it is CTRL + ALT + PRTSC + K (last time I read).05:04

krababbelHi, I want to send and receive email on the lan on the commandline. I setup my own smtp and imap/pop3 server on the lan. Do I have to install an MTA like Postfix on the clients?10:42
krababbelI ask because mailutils and bsd-mailx want to install Postfix, but Thunderbird for example doesn't? Does Thunderbird have its own MTA then?10:44
emoi guess10:45
krababbelI see10:45
emowhich V of ubuntu you are using10:46
gordonjcpkrababbel: yes, it does10:46
krababbelemo: 13.10 server10:46
gordonjcpkrababbel: okay, why are you installing Thunderbird on a server?10:46
nevynso you can just confure an MUA to use your smtp and imap server10:46
nevynthunderbird is a MUA it can't do what a MTA does.10:47
krababbelgordonjcp: no, only the clients could have thunderbird, I don't need to install any mail-reader on the server.10:47

=== d3fc0n is now known as Guest10507
krababbelWell, I'd like to install the simplest form of MUA for a client. This is just a testlab, so all machines run ubuntu server actually, but the mail-server should not have Thunderbird or similar.10:48
nevynmail, mutt, elm, pine etc10:49
nevynkrababbel: so you probably want to instaall a mta on the clients if they're servers10:50
krababbelnevyn: I was confused about the need to install postfix, but I could just use ssmtp then?10:50
=== djD3f is now known as d3fc0n

krababbelnevyn: OK, SSMPT maybe then.10:51

=== Sinis_smooth is now known as GREECE|Sinis
=== GREECE|Sinis is now known as Sinis_smooth
krababbelnevyn: Do you mean there are different MTAs available?10:52
nevynno i mean you could just use a mua that can talk smtp to the central mailserver10:52
nevynand not have a local mta at all on the clients10:53
nevynbut that's a more unusual configuration10:53
krababbelnevyn: OK, I see, I thought that was the usual config. :) Thanks.10:53
nevynkrababbel: so the thing is LOTS of stuff sends email10:54
nevynin particular lots of system things send email10:54
nevyncron, at and log reporting systems10:54
krababbelBut having multiple users per machine would make it desireable to have an mta locally I guess. And cron etc also, indeed.10:55

greyhatpythonnope it's not working i tried gksudo but it's not installed and i can't even install it...11:50
chemist^(i think it's when you try to copy protected files or to a protected target path)11:50
cem_thanx im downloading it11:50
cem_i will try11:50
chemist^greyhatpython, try copying the files using terminal commands11:50
greyhatpythonbut why is this problem in new version of Ubuntu, while 10.10 was straight forward!11:51
chemist^it's not a problem related to a new version of ubuntu11:52
eyfourgreyhatpython: Are you trying to copy to the USB-stick while running Ubuntu from the very same stick?11:52
bekksgreyhatpython: Why "cant you install it"?11:52
chemist^it's strange you can't install anything on your live session11:52
greyhatpythonInstall on usb?11:52
chemist^it gets deleted when you shutdown11:52
greyhatpythonI am running ubuntu live usb.11:52
eyfourgreyhatpython: ...and you are trying to write to that same USB while running Uubntu, right? It won't work.11:53
chemist^yes...so what :)11:53
greyhatpythonwhy can't?11:53
chemist^you need to add persistence to your live usb11:53
chemist^in order to save files on it11:54
eyfourgreyhatpython: Because the "live" file system mounts itself as read-only.11:54
chemist^greyhatpython, you need to add a new partition ext4 on the remaining unpartitioned space available on your USB11:54
chemist^and name it persistence11:54
greyhatpythonok but it is not copying even to another hard drive11:54
chemist^well..that's odd :)11:55
chemist^greyhatpython, have you tried opening nautilus with sudo?11:55
Andreas_im in the ubuntu demo now. I can see the harddrive to the left. but the installer cannot detect it.11:55
chemist^greyhatpython, and what error does it give you when you try to copy via terminal commands?11:55
bekksAndreas_: What is the "Ubuntu demo"?11:56
eyfourgreyhatpython: I see. What kind of file system is on the "other" hard drive?11:56
eyfourbekks: Probably synonymous with Live DVD/USB11:56
chemist^probably ntfs :)11:56
greyhatpythonwell sudo nautilus didn't work so i tried gksudo it was by installed on previous ubuntu, now that's the problem.11:56

Andreas_bekks: when booting from the live CD, you get two options: try the demo, or install Ubuntu11:57
chemist^bekks, ok11:57
bekksgreyhatpython: because your USB installation does not support persistence.11:58
chemist^greyhatpython, try doing it in terminal, use cp command (copy, paste)11:58
greyhatpythonI don't think it's related to persistence of the usb key. I am copying file from one hard drive to another.11:59
greyhatpythoni need to try terminal11:59
Andreas_do I need to unmount the disk before I can install onto it?11:59

bekksRealNWO: The words are "kubuntu" and "because".12:09
universalRealNWO: you can install kde on ubuntu and gnome/unity on kubuntu12:09
Andreas_i have only 28 gb available on my  windows drive isn't that too little to install ubuntu on?12:09
RealNWOso whats the difference then?12:09
bekksAndreas_: No.12:09
bekksRealNWO: The difference is a different set of preinstalled software.12:09
mrp123RealNWO - I have 4 different DEs on my installation, just pick and chose depending how i feel that day12:10
RealNWOi installed kde on ubuntu, and it says its kubuntu now12:10
RealNWOso am i using ubuntu or kubuntu?12:10
Andreas_bekks but after mandatory shit is installed ill end up with just a few GB left over right12:10
bekksRealNWO: You can change the plymouth splashscreen if you like.12:10
bekksAndreas_: No.12:10
RealNWOwhich is accurate?12:10
RealNWOi installed ubuntu from a CD, then installed KDE, now it says kubuntu12:10
Andreas_well ill try installing ubuntu on my windows drive then12:11
RealNWOso am i using ubuntu or kbuntu12:11
Andreas_installer still cant detect my SATA drive even tho its listed to the left on the demo12:11
bekksRealNWO: The preinstalled software sets are called "Ubuntu" and "Kubuntu". That does not mean you are are using "Ubuntu" or "Kubuntu" once you installed KDE on Ubuntu or Unity on Kubuntu. The only thing that matters is which desktop environment you are using.12:11
cfhowlettRealNWO, you installed the kubuntu-desktop NOT kde.  KDE would only add the desktop environment.12:11
mrp123RealNWO - what bekks said ^^12:11

bekksgordonjcp: He has 28GB avail.12:12
gordonjcpbekks: in this case, 28GB is *masses* unless you want to get into ridiculous amounts of uncompressed audio12:13

Andreas_gordonjcp ok12:14
gordonjcpAndreas_: when you run the installer from the live desktop, what happens?12:14
mrp123Andreas_ - didn't you say that you had two harddrives?12:15
Andreas_mrp123 i have 3 hard drives, one SSD, one SATA, one USB 2.012:15
Andreas_its the SATA the installer cant detect. it can detect the other 212:15
gordonjcpAndreas_: unplug everything except the SATA drive12:15
Andreas_how big should my ubuntu partition be?12:16

gordonjcpAndreas_: as big as you like12:16

gregor3005hi, i bought a second hand graphiccard and it works buch better than my old one, the new one is a nvidia gt630. after a time have the problem that the workstation freezes. i tried many different nvidia drivers which are available under ubuntu 13.10. does anybody know a good solution to test the graphiccard if eg. the memory is corrupt or other problems? i viewed the gpu temperature, it is between 45-52°C. my old one was much w14:22
Pessimistgregor3005, maybe the issue is not with the graphics card?14:23

alexa22222should I uncomment it?17:36
TYDIRockshitsujiTMO, ubottu, I used some repair tool on the first installation that gave me this: paste.ubuntu.com/6699109 but that didn't help17:36

TJ-TYDIRocks: OK ... is GRUB referencing a file-system it can't find... which suggests it can't find the boot files... which implies they weren't installed to the correct drive.17:39

alexa22222TJ, should I have sdb?17:41
hitsujiTMOalexa22222: he means your crypttab is set up to load /dev/sdb6 instead of /dev/sda617:42
TJ-alexa22222: I think when you installed there was another drive attached. I think you only need to edit "/etc/crypttab" to change "/dev/sdb6" to "/dev/sda6" but *before* you do that, lets confirm my theory. Show us the output of "sudo blkid /dev/sda6"17:42
alexa22222/dev/sda6: UUID="42e7a367-7913-47f1-89e3-e187ff9fb414" TYPE="swap"17:43
alexa22222that's the output17:43
hitsujiTMOalexa22222: did you manually create a crypted swap after the install?17:43
TJ-alexa22222: OK, that looks good. I suggest you edit "/etc/crypttab" and replace "/dev/sdb6" with this: "UUID=42e7a367-7913-47f1-89e3-e187ff9fb414"17:44

AndreasH_Hallo. Does anyone know a way to find out the kernel's current *in-memory* idea of the partition table of /dev/sda?  Context: in a moment of inspiration, I've just dd'ed over the first few hundred MB of my hard drive, killing the partition table and my system on /dev/sda1.  But the system's still up for the moment, with most system tools still usable.  I have backups of my /home on /dev/sda2, but restoring them will be slow.  If I17:48
AndreasH_could get the partition offsets and resurrect /dev/sda2, I'd save time (and feel smug).17:48

bcuraboyare you sure?? cause i downloaded from the website18:27
hitsujiTMObcuraboy: 12.04.3 is the current 12.04 verison. 12.04.4 isn't released until feb 6th18:27
TYDIRockshitsujiTMO: back on my liveCD. First attempt to boot up came up with "attempt to read or write outside of disk 'hd0' then the second time I tried booting it was just stuck on "Loading Operating System . . ."18:28
bcuraboybut does it matter for anything? what about the duplicated sources list with the cambrium?18:28
hitsujiTMObcuraboy: pastebin cat /etc/apt/sources.list && lsb_release -a18:29
hitsujiTMOTYDIRocks: crap. ok. the mention of hd0 is a bit odd. try this: sudo dd if=/dev/sda of=sda bs=512 count=1 && sudo dd if=/dev/sdc of=sdc bs=512 count=118:31
hitsujiTMObcuraboy: pastebin: cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*18:32

Icehawk78I had a apt processes break in the middle of restarting my machine and now I can't get apt-get to install any updates. Is there a way for me to clear out any partially downloaded packages and tell it to just redo all of the installation steps from scratch?18:33
hitsujiTMOTYDIRocks: is the hdd disconnected again?18:34
TYDIRockshitsujiTMO: Nope, it's plugged in with the blue light on18:34
hitsujiTMOTYDIRocks: sudo fdisk -l18:34
TYDIRockshitsujiTMO: I noticed the command had sda in it. Not sure if you recall but mine is sdc18:34
daftykinsIcehawk78: run 'sudo apt-get -f install' and pastebin the output18:34
TYDIRockshitsujiTMO: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6734081/18:34
TYDIRockshitsujiTMO: well now it isn't showing...should I unplug and replug?18:35
hitsujiTMOyes. looks like it could be an issue with the drive18:35
Icehawk78daftykins: Will do as soon as sudo dpkg --configure -a finishes (another site told me to run that, and after a reboot, that might have worked)18:35
TYDIRockshitsujiTMO: okay now it is seen18:36

pepper_chicohi, anyone has problems with ubuntu online accounts? I'm trying to add a google account on 13.10, but the accounts application does nothing18:37

haclongdo you know why ?18:39
daftykinsIcehawk78: you actually use MySQL i take it?18:39
TYDIRockshitsujiTMO: Sure thing. Do you mine if I open a seperate chat between you and I when I send you those?18:39
daftykinsIcehawk78: try "sudo apt-get remove mysql-server-5.5" then "sudo apt-get clean" then "sudo apt-get -f install" again18:40
Icehawk78daftykins: Yes, among other thigns, it's the backend for my xbmc setup to sync watch state between machines18:40
hitsujiTMOTYDIRocks: no problems18:40
smallfoot-maybe people move from MySQL to MariaDB18:40
pepper_chicohi, anyone has problems with ubuntu online accounts? I'm trying to add a google account on 13.10, but the accounts application does nothing18:40
Icehawk78smallfoot-: Most of my primary development work is on postgres, but that's not an option for some programs18:40
Icehawk78daftykins: Will that remove my database, or just stop it from trying to upgrade?18:41
TYDIRockshitsujiTMO: what website do you recommend that doesn't require an account?18:41
smallfoot-I heard good things about Postgres, it has support for JSON data type too, thats cool18:41
daftykinsIcehawk78: not sure if it'll touch any existing db's, but i definitely think a remove and later reinstall may help18:41
hitsujiTMOTYDIRocks: not sure to be honest. i use my own server for stuff like that18:42
Icehawk78daftykins: If there's a chance it'll touch existing dbs, then that's not really an option for me, I don't have those backed up elsewhere18:42
siwicahitsujiTMO: Ok, I ran your last command (sudo dpkg-reconfigure man-db) succesfully18:42
daftykinsIcehawk78: so back them up? :)18:42

MrKeunerhello, I'd like to install ubuntu on a shitty macbook. cdrom does not work, so I connected an internal ide cdrom to a ide2usb connection and plugged into macbook18:43
Icehawk78tbh, I don't know how. But since mysql doesn't seem to be blocking other upgrades any more, I'm fine just leaving things as they are.18:43
siwicahitsujiTMO: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.18:43
MrKeunercan I expect to boot macbook from this cdrom?18:43
siwicahitsujiTMO: should I just do that18:43
hitsujiTMOsiwica: yes18:43

eerbekks, then wine should also be 64 bit19:55
bekkseer: that doesnt answer the question wether wine is 32 or 64 bit.19:55
eerbekks, how can I find out?19:55
ActionParsnipsaskslayer:I see, so its a desktop OS now.19:55
ubuntu45567hi all, I have made a usb boot stick, but unlike last time (older ubuntu version), this one is read-only and does not remember my settings. How to make a writable usb boot disk with Pangolin?19:55

yacc_vanishing, the important thing is that I feel really unhappy about not knowing how to migrate the system. Just NOW it's not a big issue, because the install was a test install anyway, and the "semi-final" (as will do for the next months) SSD will be freshly installed into.20:16

yacc_vanishing, but migration is necessary for a laptop user, it's not the desktop world anymore where discs somehow get added without ever really removing the old stuff.20:17
spearheadZack_: that should be sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade20:17
saskslayerActionParsnip : Whats the command to install the drivers, i couldnt pick it when you told me, sorry20:17

gmachine_24jeffry: you mean from the repository list?20:37
ActionParsnipjeffry: you can delete the .list in /etc/apt/sources.list.d to remove the source20:37
jeffryyeah cuase i keep getting an error with http://www.sourceslist.eu/repo/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-amd64/Packages20:37

AulaActionParsnip I tried installing an older version via two packages from the ubuntu packages website but to no avail.20:38

AulaActionParsnip right now I'm back to the latest version of xserver-common and xserver-xorg-core 1.14.5-1 I have an AMD card20:38
saskslayerIm using the PPA20:38
ActionParsnipRcw2: its one reason I use it.20:38
saskslayerShould i use the deb package instead ?20:38
TuringiActionParsnip, bekks: this is what I'm trying to do: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6734707/  (I have a static gateway setup, but sometimes that gateway is not available, so I also want eth1 to use dhcp as a backup)20:38
rcw2ActionParsnip, im still trying to determine how its search compares to google20:39
ActionParsnipsaskslayer: then you may need to set an xorg.conf file up to accommodate your GPU and set better settings20:39

TuringiActionParsnip, bekks: is that a completely wrong way to go about solving the problem? i.e. on unavailable gateway fail over to an alias set up for dhcp?20:43
ActionParsnipeer: doesnt work here but I'm using Trusty so not a very good test20:43
rcw2ActionParsnip, http://dontbubble.us -- -- my question is more about the way they crawl the net, i already knew about the filtering/privacy20:44
bekksTuringi: Thats the complete wrong way for whatever problem. :)20:44
Turingibekks: what can you suggest?20:44
ActionParsnipRcw2: thats how it compares, you dont get filtered results.20:44
bekksTuringi: If the gateway fails, dhcpo is irrelevant, since the same gateway is still faulted when using dhcp.20:44
eerActionParsnip, OK thx anyway20:44
hitsujiTMOTuringi: it could help if you describe what the problem is that you're trying to solve in the first place20:44
ActionParsnipRcw2: you can search google from ddg with: !g thing20:45
Turingibekks: there is another low-power box on the network with dhcp, but I would rather not use that unless the static gateway is down20:45
bekksTuringi: Redesign your infrastructure, basically.20:45
TrubbleWithUbuntguys I need your help20:45
gmachine_24bencc there are recovery tools but I am not famliiar with them20:45
rcw2ActionParsnip, but do you know if it crawls as many sites and crawls as often as google20:45
ActionParsnipTrubbleWithUbunt: ask away20:45
Turingibekks: not possible to redo the infrastructure20:45
bekksTuringi: And the dhcp server uses which gateway...?20:45

hitsujiTMOapb1963: the first line of the free output gives used memory, but also includes buffers and caches releated to filesystem access. (the kernel caches files you read from the hdd, in case you want to reread them again, such as the chrome binary, etc) these caches you will be dumped for any apps that need them memory. The second line show the memory usage wihtout the buffers/cache. this is what you're interested in when determining free/used m21:20

ActionParsnipMrKeuner: then yes. If it doesnt install then use the usual desktop ISO as Macs now use generic CPUs.21:21
Dramorskaka add it to your .bash_aliases then type . .bash_aliases21:21
io_______ActionParsnip: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=4afc3858692b956136d92f2baf3e60bf0618662221:22
ActionParsnipKaka: add the line in ~/.bashrc21:22
bekksapb1963: So you still have more free ram than used swap.21:22
DramorsDon't add it in .bashrc, no reason to dirty that file up with aliases21:22
apb1963hitsujiTMO: OK, that's more clear.  But when you say caches will be dumped... do you mean swapped out, or do you mean... re-used without saving?21:22
apb1963hitsujiTMO: w/out saving to swap.21:22
ActionParsnipDramors: why, it already has lots in there by default.21:22

DramorsBesides, if you keep your aliases in a separate file it's easier to go through them21:23
kakaDramors, where should I put it, then, to make it work?21:23
Dramorsjust make a .bash_aliases file21:23
Dramorsin your home dir21:24

DramorsAnyway, any idea if adding subdirs to the ~/bin will add the binaries in them to my path?21:25

fizyplanktonif i made a raw backup of my hard drive with something like dd if=/dev/sda of=backup.img, can i restore that to a hard dive with a larger capacity with dd if=backup.img of=/dev/sda23:48
dudey1I never restart the network cause it never seems to work, I just restart the entire system..23:49
k1l_fizyplankton: yes, but the partitions will stay at the old smaller sizes. you need to change that manually afterwards23:49
daftykinsfizyplankton: yes but it'll likely then be smaller, if it was from a new enough version of Windows you might then be able to (in Windows) resize the partition23:49

k1l_!sudo | apb1963 in case you mean that23:53
ubottuapb1963 in case you mean that: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo23:53
apb1963k1l_: uh... no, not the question.23:53
apb1963mrpizzaface: can you be more specific with an example please?23:54
k1l_apb1963: then please explain what you mean with "op on command line"23:54
apb1963k1l_: First, run top.  Then press O, then p.23:54

catalase_can someone please explain to me why apache 2.4.7 is not the latest when i apt-get apache2 from ubuntu?23:59
MonkeyDust!latest | catalase_ here's why23:59
ubottucatalase_ here's why: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.23:59
