hitsujiTMOrunvnc: look at the grub.cfg00:00
TJ-runvnc: For caution I'd check "/etc/fstab" and be sure there isn't something that could trip it up on reboot.00:00
TJ-runvnc: Usually "update-grub" puts the most recent kernel first... check "/boot/grub/grub.cfg" you should see it is listed first00:00
honeybuntuThis is the best URL address on simply installing ubuntu that i am aware of ItalianStallion. Please check it out:   http://askubuntu.com/questions/6328/how-do-i-install-ubuntu00:00
TJ-runvnc: You can change the default item number in "/etc/default/grub"00:00
TJ-runvnc: any changes to "/etc/default/grub" require "update-grub" afterwards00:01

lickalottTJ-, think i've pinpointed to a dbus issue00:08
itesi'm installing a new OS, and i need to provide the name of my domain. since it's a home network, i can just make something up. but they say it should be the same for every computer. i'm running ubuntu on this machine, how can i check which domain name i used?00:08

TJ-lickalott: some recent changed caused it, or has it got itself confused?00:09
lickalottwithin the last three/four days00:09
runvnctj any idea why dpkg -l never seems to update after I remove things? I used apt-get remove but it always keeps in the dpkg -l list00:09
runvnceven though it says it was removed00:09
lickalottrunvnc, have you ever tried a purge?00:09
lickalottor autoremove00:10
runvncI have been running autoremove doesnt remove it from that dpkg list00:10
runvncI will try purge00:10
TJ-runvnc: When you do "apt-get remove" it leaves the config files behind. Look at the "dpkg -l" output and you'll see the config column shows a c. If you did "apt-get purge" the config files would be removed too00:10
runvncit says rc00:10
runvncmeans removed?00:10
TJ-runvnc: Yes Removed, but still Configured00:11

Stalkr_What's the easiest way to give me full FTP access to the whole system? I can only access my home directory right now, and can't even write to it, even though I have enabled write_enable=YES and local_enable=YES00:13
Crazydogdamn you guys hate me00:13
lickalottCrazydog, no idea what is even going on there.  Can you give us some more detail?00:13
CrazydogOh thanks :)00:13
CrazydogI'm trying to compile a program and i'm very new at this.  Heres what i'm trying to compile00:14
lickalottStalkr_, are you using vsftpd?00:14
px443Stalkr_: do it over ssh instead, sftp etc  works a lot better00:14
Stalkr_lickalott: Yes00:14
hitsujiTMOStalkr_: 1) why are you using ftp? 2) whay are you using ftp?00:14
Stalkr_Is FTP really that bad?00:14
lickalotteasily exploitable00:14
lickalottssh, scp, sftp ftw00:14
hitsujiTMOStalkr_: very insecure. use sftp: install ssh and use key auth00:15
Stalkr_I have an FTP client, I just wanted to use that. It supports SFTP too, but I can't write at all, only read00:15
mcristoHey guys.00:15
jeffrey_fstalkr: FTP is not secure.  sFTP is better.  FileZilla works quite well and Read/Write could be permissions00:15
CrazydogI think i got all the dependencies installed but libtool seems to be giving me problems.  when i attempt to autoreconf or automake its giving me missing /compact/Makefile.in file not found error.00:15
px443Stalkr_: you can change permissions with chmod00:16
Stalkr_I think my permissions are messed up, I have to do sudo for everything. I can't even mkdir00:16
hitsujiTMOStalkr_: secondly. you shouldn't be blindly giving root access over sftp. upload you files to home and move then in place in a secure manner00:16
lickalottCrazydog, what I meant was more along of the lines of what were you doing when that error popped up?  (makefile, make, install, apt-get, etc...?)00:16
nevynStalkr_: where?00:16
jeffrey_fStalkr: There's the problem.  You don't own the object if you did stuff under Sudo00:16
Crazydogautomake and autoreconf give me that error.00:16

tarienmy someone help me activate mysql for php in ubuntu 13.10?00:26
tarien*may ...00:27
Stalkr_Unless it's a lot of unnecessary configs00:27
hitsujiTMOStalkr_: the norm is to create a group for those who are trusted to write to that dir: sudo groupadd www-adm00:28
hitsujiTMOStalkr_: not a huge lot, but its good to know00:28
Stalkr_hitsujiTMO: So if my friend wants to use a folder, I can give him write rights to that folder, by adding him to a group of www-useres?00:29
hitsujiTMOStalkr_: yup00:29
Stalkr_Doesn't sound too bad. I have my own domain, would I be using virtual host to have a folder domain.com pointing to my domain?00:30
hitsujiTMOStalkr_: then, the web root should be owned by that group: sudo chown -R root:www-adm /var/www00:30
Stalkr_hitsujiTMO: I know how I get my domain to point to my IP, I have done that before. To tell the host, I will be using this folder (/var/www/domain) for this site, do I have to configure a virtual host?00:32
hitsujiTMOStalkr_: next you want it to be group writable and, have the setgid bit set, so any files or folders created inherit the www-adm gid. sudo chmod -R g+ws /var/www00:32
Stalkr_hitsujiTMO: in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/domain.conf -- I believe that's the folder00:33
Crazydogi figured it out and didnt need you guys :P00:34
hitsujiTMOStalkr_: you configure a virtual host in the /etc/apache2/sites-available/ and then enable the virtual host with: sudo a2ensite domain00:34
hitsujiTMOStalkr_: all you have to do now is add every user to the group: sudo adduser www-adm iamstalkr00:35
DoverMoCrazydog, ;c00:35
hitsujiTMOStalkr_: that easy to do things the right way00:35

skinuxAlso, is there a way to allow being able to right-click app icons and select 'run as root' or similar?00:43
CrazydogI compiled my first source code!! Now how the hell do I run it?00:43
=== jje is now known as Guest84190
geirhaskinux: A command is a command. It doesn't matter if it's a compiled binary, an sh script, a bash script, a perl script or a python script. A command is a command. So what's the point in this categorization?00:44
milamberCrazydog: what did you compile?00:44
OerHeksTJ-, maybe bs=4K speeds up00:44
=== Guest84190 is now known as jje
TJ-OerHeks: usually I run at bs=1G but reduced it here to leave some memory free for other processes00:45
hitsujiTMOTJ-: OerHeks bs isn't even needed. any tests i've done showed fasted speed by omiting it00:45
TJ-hitsujiTMO: all my tests show it being significantly faster with a larger buffer, up to 1G. Earlier it was doing 120MB/s ... not sure what its faffing about at now!00:46
milamberCrazydog: typically it is: sudo ldconfig  <then press enter> <then type the command name>00:46
milamberCrazydog: you should only  have to do the ldconfig thing one time00:46
hitsujiTMOTJ-: any activity on sdx other than the write?00:47
milamberCrazydog: and just to confirm, compiling was something like: configure, make, sudo make install?00:47
hitsujiTMOTJ-: could be the seek times killing you if there is00:47
CrazydogYa, it was pretty easy. this time around.  I just deleted everything and started over00:47
Crazydogfound the sgminer.exe seems to work too :)00:48
hitsujiTMOTJ-: well, same goes for source too i guess.00:48

jeffrey_fhe_Alpha_Omega: Once up, slim it down by shutting off unnecessary services and turn on only what is needed02:17
gmachine_24The_Alpha_Omega: I was running a server with an Athlon CPU but the drives got too small and I just built a new box for $350 and bc I haven't had a new desktop for years it seems insnely fast; I'm just sayin'. . .02:19

jeffrey_fgmachine_24:  If somehow we could get it as close to XP as possible, we'd have a winner.  Then re-educating that It isn't windows and most windows software won't work even with emulation.   95% would be education02:36
gmachine_24jeffrey_f: yeah.... but you have people who cannot afford a new computer and if they get a new(er) computer they will likely new new versions of all their favorite programs - so you're talking major money.02:38
jeffrey_fThe biggest thing is no itunes....that would throw most people off of Linux of any flavor.  Example: my girlfriend....Liked it, but couldn't figure out *no itunes* thing02:38
gmachine_24jeffrey_f: and here I thought no itunes was a plus02:38
jeffrey_fgmachine_24:  Last time I *TRIED* iTunes, Itunes decided to remove all of my music.  Never again.02:39
jeffrey_fgmachine_24:  Amarok or Rhythmbox, I'm happy02:41
gmachine_24jeffrey_f: I had it installed once so I could download the "free" itunes songs given away with/by starbucks; that novelty wore off quickly02:41

natasbut at the same time, i have seen people fix it04:37
natasin fact, someone fixed it with gdebi04:37
evonnatas, i didn't bother fixing it.  I just installed the other version. didn't see that advantage in getting the 64bit04:37

Ben64not choppy?04:42
evonBen64, not at all. you da man04:43
evonBen64, audio out of sync majorly though04:43
Ben64could be the file04:43
Tex_Nickevon: my experience with that issue would be that, the video is encoded in a rather aggressive manner (x264) ... graphics chipset is of utmost importance there though04:44
evonben64, tex_nick anyway to fix that?04:44
Ben64mplayer uses vdpau, so it hardware accelerates x264 and other mpeg4 video files04:45

lotuspsychjeclick a driver and activate yes05:52
Piranah420then reboot05:52
Piranah420I have the clasic underscan nvidia issue and resolved tonight Ubuntu 13 by doing just that.05:53
Piranah420Click reboot and solved05:53
ihavenonicki tried that several times, but now that i've installed ubuntu-restricted-extras, let me take a look at additional drivers again and i'll try a reboot as well05:54
sethj_Piranah420 what nvidia driver are you using now05:55
ihavenonick"searching for available drivers" takes forever =)05:55
=== sethj_ is now known as sethj
ihavenonickok, i don't see anything different from before, just 2 ati/amd proprietary FGLRX graphics drivers: experimental beta, and post-release updates05:56
ihavenonicki tried activating them both  before, but after a reboot all it says it "installed by not activated", and I can't see to activate it05:56
sethjihavenonick have you tried both?05:56
ihavenonicksethj: yup, i could not activate neither05:56
ihavenonickthat's why i had to manually install it using instructions from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/AMD05:57
ihavenonick(and now that i did, neither of the drivers under "additional drivers" are installed05:57
lotuspsychjeihavenonick: what does lshw -C video say now next to driver=05:58
=== aman is now known as Guest90994
ihavenonicklotuspsychje: i hadn't installed a different driver through "additional drivers", and so i haven't rebooted, and so lshw -C video still says the same thing06:00
lotuspsychjeihavenonick: try disable all graphics drivers and reboot, then lshw again see what module it loeds06:01
ihavenonicklotuspsychje: how do i disable all graphics drivers?06:01
kanishkai installed xampp  just now06:02
lotuspsychjeihavenonick: just disable the green button06:02
lotuspsychjeelky: tnx06:02
kanishkai got the error like:06:02
rwwubottu: xampp | kanishka06:02
ubottukanishka: We do not support XAMPP installs here. Please use the LAMP stack that is in our repositories; see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP for more information.06:02
ihavenonicklotuspsychje: i have no green buttons under "additional drivers"06:02
cfhowlettihavenonick, if it's only video that is struggling, I'd suggest that either you've got the wrong graphic driver or your GPU is over-taxed.  Assuming you're on unity, install a lighter desktop, e.g. xfce4 or lxde and then try your video again06:02
elkylotuspsychje: next time mangle the url so they don't get bonus google exposure from our logs :)06:03
ihavenonickcfhowlett: but video is great after i reboot, it just starts lagging after a while; also, it was never this bad on windows xp06:03
elkylotuspsychje: thanks though :)06:03
ihavenonickcfhowlett: i could watch hd videos full screen with no problem, now i can't (after the video starts lagging - it's fine after a fresh reboot before the lagging kicks in)06:04
lotuspsychjeelky: whats mangle mean?06:04
phuhwhat should we ubuntu lovers say to those that say fedora or debian are better than ubuntu?06:04
dash09hi, i can't find answer by internet search so.. each time i click on "Dash Home" for USER_1 my Dash and Menu Bar turn into yellow blocks, loss of text, lines like a static television channel, for USER_2, no trouble. how do i figure out differences and make USER_1's settings like USER_2's?06:04
elkylotuspsychje: change it in some way so it won't work06:05
dash09i have reset ubuntu unity plugin in ccsm numerous times, even tried unity --reset. not working06:05
lotuspsychjeelky: ok roger06:06
dash09should i try something like this? mkdir ~/.old-gnome-config/ && mv ~/.gnome* ~/.old-gnome-config/ && mv ~/.gconf* ~/.old-gnome-config/ && mv ~/.metacity ~/.old-gnome-config/ && mv ~/.cache ~/.old-gnome-config/ && mv ~/.dbus ~/.old-gnome-config/ && mv ~/.dmrc ~/.old-gnome-config/ && mv ~/.mission-control ~/.old-gnome-config/ && mv ~/.thumbnails ~/.old-gnome-config/   && ~/.config/dconf/* ~/.old-gnome-config/06:09
dash09just to reset things for USER_1's setup?06:09
ihavenonick_i just reboot again, and my video works great again without actually changing the drivers in any way06:16
ihavenonick_is there some diagnostic i can look at to compare how things look when they're good, vs. how things look when they're bad?06:17
lotuspsychjeihavenonick_: lshw -C video shows another driver= now?06:20
ihavenonick_lotuspsychje: lshw is still giving the same output06:22
ihavenonick_however, i think i managed to reproduce the problem06:22
ihavenonick_everything was fine until i went to the dash, and the transparent window came up06:22
ihavenonick_is it possible that the transparency pushed the hardware acceleration  too far, and ubuntu switches to software acceleration at the lost of poorer performance?06:23
lotuspsychjeihavenonick_: try disable background blur in ccsm/unity plugin06:23
ihavenonick_lotuspsychje: is the ccsm/unity plugin something i can download through the software center?06:24
lotuspsychjeihavenonick_: yes search for compizconfig settings manager06:24
Raymondohey. I was plugging in a new display and I managed to screw up my graphics drivers somehow (ati catalyst). booted into a blank desktop. I got nautilus to run so in theory I can switch drivers back to xorg default - problem is that all options except 'manually installed' are greyed out06:25
ihavenonick_lotuspsychje: is it actually called "background blur"? i'm not sure what i'm looking for here06:26
lotuspsychjeactive blur or something06:27
lotuspsychjeihavenonick_: and set to 'no blur'06:28
Raymondothis is the advice I was following so far: http://askubuntu.com/a/36323806:28
Raymondois there a command line method to switch to default gfx drivers?06:29
ihavenonick_lotuspsychje: alright, i went to advanced preferences and filtered for "blur", there's "KDE Compatibility" plugin with a "Support Blur Effect", and I unchecked that06:29
ihavenonick_lotuspsychje: and there is a "Ubuntu Unity Plugin", and under Experimental, there's a "Dash Blur" that i can select "Active Blur", "Static Blur" , and "No Blur"06:30
lotuspsychjeno blur yes06:30
lotuspsychjethats the106:30
ihavenonick_I set it to "No Blur", i guess I'll reboot and try to reproduce the problem again...thanks06:30
lotuspsychjeok good luck06:31

tripelbRaymondo: does ot work with liveCD?06:37
tripelb<<< basic simple thinker06:37
Raymondothat would take a fair bit of work to determine06:39
Raymondohow would it help?06:39
ihavenonicklotuspsychje: well, it's better now without the blur effect; SD videos play fine (and I like the UI much more without the blur anyway); i manage to kill my ability to watch HD videos by playing 3 videos at once, that seemed to push it over, and now my HD videos will be laggy until i reboot again06:45

ThisWeeksCoinHey guys. I need help07:22
ThisWeeksCoinI got infected on windows and I'm trying to find a way to remove the virus through my Ubuntu. Could anyone help, please?07:23
Gallomimia_my favorite method is to copy your essential files out and delete the partition with windows on it. never use windows again. if that's not your cup of tea, you could run a windows rescue disk, or after erasing everything on the partition as above, reinstall windows 807:24
mnemonThisWeeksCoin: you'll be better off by downloading a bootable antivirus thingy from one of the major av vendors or reinstalling.07:24
Gallomimia_perhaps selectively erasing files which are infected and using the rescue disk to reinstall them will work07:24
ThisWeeksCoinmnemon, I have bitcoin wallets there07:24
ThisWeeksCoinI can't use anything07:25
ThisWeeksCoinIt lags badly07:25
ThisWeeksCoinLike the CPU usage is over 90%07:25

=== epzil0n is now known as Guest1282
Gallomimia_ThisWeeksCoin: two things. you should be able to mount your windows partition, if it's not already, with the "disks" program and copy any files you need off that drive. back everything up that you need now.07:27
shubhamjainI am using nethogs. and `nethogs mbn0` doesn't work.07:28

rwwspacemaster: this is a support channel, not a science lab, sorry.07:29
Gallomimia_i like how zero people actually did what he asked07:30
ishanyxi don't think anyone wants to get banned for spamming by following his instructions :P07:30
rwwactually, it's because none of us are really here07:31

diepesHello everyone08:26
DoverModiepes, hello08:28
diepesAny recommendations for a dual panel file manager that works well with Ubuntu?08:28
diepesOr a way to add it to the default file manager ?08:29
varunendradiepes, have you tried "F3" in nautilus?08:35
ubottutedescoplus: No warez here! This is not a file sharing channel (or network); read the channel topic. If you're looking for information about me, type « /msg ubottu !bot ». If you're looking for a channel, see « /msg ubottu !alis ».08:36
spacemasterctrl + T in nautilus usually works08:36
spacemasterplus you should go to preferences and check the box that says "always open in navigation panels" or something like that08:37
varunendraspacemaster, yup, but side-by-side panel has its own advantages :)08:37
spacemasterOh side by side. Well then I guess I'm no help cause I just use nautilus08:39
varunendraspacemaster, nautilus does that with "F3" :)08:41
spacemasterOk. Will try it when in linux. Now im on Seven08:42
diepesspacemaster: ctrl + t worked (using Files)  default file manager,   but it is only tabs.08:45
spacemasterwell diepes what do you really want to be able to do? Yes it is only tabs, that's how I usually use it.08:45
spacemasterhave you tried F3 like varunendra said?08:47
spacemasterfrom a screenshot it looks like what you want08:47
diepesbetter than nothing, but side by side panels is handy when sorting files into multiple folders.08:47
diepesYes tried F3 does nothing08:48
varunendradiepes, Ubuntu version ?08:48
varunendradiepes, on my 12.03 here, View > Extra Pane (or F3) in nautilus.08:49

spacemastervarunendra, that link I sent is what it does right when you push f3?08:52
diepesvarunendra: 13.10,  file manager called "Files"  maybe the name changed.  No Extra under File > Preferences > Views08:52

CarlitalHi everyone09:20
CarlitalI have a small question : I use Selenium Webdriver to execute tests on a linux machine. I launch firefox windows on my selenium server and from my client I would like to somehow get the visual results (video stream) of what is being executed in the firefox window on the server. I don't know how to do it (searched Xephyr and XNest but I think I'm misleaded)09:23
CarlitalDo you guys have any idea?09:23
aeon-ltdCarlital: using something like vnc? it might be overkill though if you just want the selenium test results09:24
CarlitalThat's a good idea but that would mean that each person running my tests would have access to a single machine09:25
CarlitalI was thinking about having several firefox windows running in parallel on a single server machine and then have several streams that I could distribute to the # users09:25
Carlitalbut that's what I will eventually do I guess (private cloud with several VM and a firefox window opening in full screen and HTML5 vnc client to stream the video of what is being executed)09:26
aeon-ltdi'm not sure about that, the way i've used vnc is just remote desktop purposes. i.e i see the while screen and that's the only stream09:27
Carlitalaeon-ltd: I see, that's how TestingBot and SauceLabs are doing09:27
Carlitalbut that also means running a VM each time a new user connects :)09:27
Name141How do you remove this amazon junk?09:28
Carlitalthanks for the insight09:28
aeon-ltdCarlital: there is probably some kind of extension/addon that would allow mirroring (like chrome to chromecast) for firefox09:29

ubotturcw2: 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 ..."09:43
rcw2bekks, ive been using k13.10 for a while without issue, but using wireless internet.  today, recently i wanted to switch to wired as opposed to wireless, and twice when i started using the wired connection, the video on the screen becomes unclear, and i have cold-rebooted the computer to restart09:49
bekksrcw2: So thats a video your watching over the network?09:50
rcw2bekks, no, its just the desktop09:50
rcw2bekks, soon after the wired connection starts upo09:51
rcw2the desktop becomes unclear09:51
bekksrcw2: So its not the video but the desktop.09:51
rcw2yes, im calling the desktop video here09:51
bekksrcw2: Please call the desktop desktop.09:52
rcw2so apparently theres some conflict with the lan card and the video card, right?09:52
rcw2bekks, ok, desktop=desktop09:52
bekksrcw2: Most likely it is some issue with a single software component in KDE, not with the graphics card itself.09:52

interwebgordonjcp, Is there any other software for ubuntu to bypass cencorship?10:31
gordonjcpinterweb: no idea, it's not really something I care about10:32
gordonjcpinterweb: how you go about it probably depends on what you're trying to achieve10:32
interwebgordonjcp, I can not access to bbc , cnn , facebook , twitter etc10:32
gordonjcpand that in turn probably relates to where you are10:32
rcw2gordonjcp: wine why10:32
gordonjcprcw2: because people install wine, then install crappy windows programs that don't work well, and blame the poor user experience on Linux10:33
gordonjcpif you're going to use Windows software, run it on Windows10:33
interwebIs there any free proxy or vpn for ubuntu ?10:33
bekksinterweb: Tons.10:33
gordonjcpinterweb: by default Ubuntu supports pptp10:33
interwebgordonjcp, So because of cencorship I should just use windows :/10:33
cfhowlettinterweb, what country10:34
bekksinterweb: The most popular ones are squid (proxy) and openvpn (vpn).10:34
interwebbekks, Could you give a name ?10:34

ant_thomasWhen attempting a netinstall/minimal install is it normal to have to wait ages to go from selecting the mirror to "loading additional components" I'm sure in the past this has been near enough instant but in all my recent 12.04 install it sits for a very long time.

cfhowlettinterweb, come on now, don't be lazy.  But a vpn/vps out of country and surf to your heart's content.  I'm in Beijing.  This is how it works.10:41

interwebShould I have a proxy server to use squid ?10:43
bekksinterweb: No. squid is a local proxy server.10:43

Why not ESXI? Well the UNIX Problem, that there is no x-serve in the kernel and therefore no ways to use the VM from the host-maschine. What do you think?10:55

SpeirosBen64 you and I went through this step before.  I can't burn to disk.  I have the image on the external hard drive, but nothing happens.11:07

Ben64you just need to get the right image, which is not a tar, its an iso, and put it on the external drive correctly. you can either use something like unetbootin, or you can dd the image directly to the drive.11:14
SpeirosBen64 I don't know what those terms mean.11:14
Ben64format the external drive, use the ext3 filesystem. use "unetbootin" to put the 12.04 iso onto the external drive11:15

milosz96hi all. I want to save my current cpu load to file. How can i do it? It's important to do it at least twice per second.12:02
NattgrisSince upgrading to 13.10 my keyboard layout reverts to english every time I reboot12:03

Nattgriseven if I remove all layots but swedish12:03
Speiroscfhowlett thanks12:03
cfhowlettSpeiros, that'll tell you if it's installed or not12:03
Speiroscfhowlett Installed :

cfhowlettSpeiros, then no need to install.   is it in your system menu?12:04
Nattgrisbut only workarounds, no real solutions12:05
Speiroscfhowlett Yes12:05
SpeirosDisk creator12:05
cfhowlettSpeiros, right.  so it should launch from there ...12:06
Speiroscfhowlett Yes, but this is the one that is saying "Installation failed"12:06
Speiroscfhowlett Let me try again from here12:06
cfhowlettSpeiros, fair enough.12:07
cfhowlettSpeiros, does this box dual boot?  have you access to any other computer?12:07
Speiroscfhowlett No.  Last time I had a computer and went through this, I finally bashed the crap out of it, and threw it away.12:08
Speiroscfhowlett This problem has been going on for years, and I've not been able to cope.12:08
PetazzIS there no way of using the unitu switcher to show all windows straight away?12:08
cfhowlettSpeiros, let's not go there :)12:08
Speiroscfhowlett lol, good plan12:09
Speiroscfhowlett an option box from usb start up has opened...I'll just read it12:09
cfhowlettSpeiros, nice ...12:09
Speiroscfhowlett Although this might sound silly, I am going to now enter the password a second time for authentication, but when I do, I believe it will once again say unable to boot...here goes anyhow.12:12
Speiroscfhowlett Yep..."Failed to install the bootloader".12:12
cfhowlettSpeiros, you are entering your admin password?12:12
manlinhi users, i want to stop cups smb service from autostarting on boot. how to do it? anyone please12:12
Speiroscfhowlett yep12:13
cfhowlettSpeiros, any chance you hit the incorrect password?12:13
TobzionHi.  I have an issue. I installed Ubuntu 10.4. Today when I reeboot after Ubuntu logga the screen is dark Grey and the cursor is an X. I can move around but no icons or menu and no key shortcuts work. I can still access the files on computer from my phone or TV. Anyone can assist me ty.12:13
Speiroscfhowlett I think it is because I changed the root password previously, and the admin password is different.  I have two passwords for authorisation.12:13
cfhowlettTobzion, 10.04 is end of life.  Install a supported version12:13
Speiroscfhowlett If I type an incorrect password it gives me a different message.12:14
cfhowlettSpeiros, you have a ROOT password!?12:14
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo12:14
Speiroscfhowlett yes.12:14
kendrick_In Ubuntu 8 my wires connection works but in Ubuntu 13 it doesn't.12:14
cfhowlettSpeiros, OK then ... well, refusing to install the bootloader due to no authorization is normal behavior ...12:14
Speiroscfhowlett, well my computer has two passwords, and I believe that this is the main problem.12:14
kendrick_My wired sorry12:15
TobzionOk. I guess I just install 12.04 then12:15
cfhowlettSpeiros, I've 2 accounts: one daily use, one admin.12:15
cfhowlettTobzion, highly recommended ...12:15
kendrick_Hey in Ubuntu 8 wired connection works but in 13 it doesn't.12:16
Speiroscfhowlett The problem is that from here, I can't format the main drive I'm using, as I reckon I'll get stuck where I'll need online help and won't be able to get access to it.12:16
cfhowlettSpeiros, if you ever get your boot USB up, just run the live session and install in the background12:17
Speiroscfhowlett this is why I wanted the external drive to have the iso, which I actually copied onto there previously, but have deleted it today to go through the system as people tell me that it can't just be copied.12:17
Speiroscfhowlett I don't know how to get the boot USB up, as I can't disk create.12:18
cfhowlettSpeiros, alternatives: go to your public library.  download the iso and make a usb or cdrom from there12:18
Speiroscfhowlett I have added passwords, and when I get a fail in this stupid OBM or whatever it is called, it says "Password:Yes", but12:18
=== james_ is now known as Guest79163
Speiroscfhowlett Yes, I guess it is something like that that is required.12:19
MonkeyDustSpeiros  is this the OBM you are talking about http://obm.org/12:19
SpeirosMonkeyDust Yes12:20
SpeirosMonkeyDust when I went to load it, it didn't load fully, but it also isn't able to be deleted.12:21
SpeirosMonkeyDust also, I installed it because of some problem, thinking it was something else, I think.  I can't recall the exact reason but something to do with database system.12:21
MonkeyDustSpeiros  are you running ubuntu server?12:22
SpeirosMonkeyDust No.12:22
SpeirosMonkeyDust I'm running the distro Ubuntu 10.4 as I haven't been able to upgrade.12:23
SpeirosMonkeyDust I made an unsuccessful upgrade to 10.10 on one of my computers a long time back.  That was my last successful...although it didn't work properly...upgrade.12:24
realNWOanyone know of a cert manager or konversation cert paths12:26
Speiroscfhowlett is there a terminal command to use usb-creator-gtk instead of opening the program?  It might show the error that way in the attempt of loading it.12:26
gaaaaaproblem dual booting windows8 and ubuntu 12.0412:27
cfhowlettSpeiros, sure usb-creator-gtk will launch it - but the error is, as you suggested, probably  a password issue.  You have 2; try both12:27
Speiroscfhowlett The password is accepted, but then it doesn't open.  I'll show you the two different messages.  Hang on a minute..12:28

fpghost84Hi, I'd like to create a user/group for a certain daemon, could anyone give me a rough idea of how to do so? I have to use useradd? Then how do I associate the daemon to the group?12:30
Speiroslol other than ouija?12:31
llutzfpghost84: "sudo -g newgroup daemon"  or "-u newuser" (man sudo)12:32
cfhowlettSpeiros, I ran the -h option to see if it might possible to trigger verbose error reporting - no such luck.  Plan B; download unetbootin from sourceforge, install and create.  If the error persists, you might need to revisit that root/admin password arrangement12:32
Speiroscfhowlett I found unetbootin, although it is displayed as a box with a questionmark in it in my applicatons12:33
Speiroscfhowlett what can I do with unetbootin?12:33

MonkeyDustpikaren  they only steal your identity, not your money13:00
humbolt1when I have a system installed on a disk with an MBR partition table and I convert that table to GPT, will my system still boot without any additional intervention?!13:00
bazkie_bumpercarokay thanks cfhowlett :)13:00
LjLpikaren: pick an OS you feel you can trust. there isn't really a way to *ensure* it's trusted, unless maybe you use one that you compile yourself from almost the ground up (and inspect the entire source code of)13:00
Simpson_2I'm having issues autostarting postgres 9.1 on system boot, manual start afterwards works fine, it has shared memoery issues it claims. does shared memoery change between boot and running phase ?13:00
LjLbazkie_bumpercar: LILO13:01
bazkie_bumpercarlol, hi ljl :D13:01
llutzpikaren: so either you trust  or you don't use it13:01
cfhowletthumbolt1, convert:  yes.  without additional intervention?  hopefully, usually, probably, but just in case ... backup13:01
pikarenand how do we trust the mirrors13:01
llutzpikaren: same story13:01
humbolt1cfhowlett: I'll backup the initial MBR and partition layout.13:01
pikarenmaybe some mirrors would inject something13:01
humbolt1cfhowlett: anything else?13:01
cfhowlettpikaren, assuming you have a wiki or tutorial.  get lots of rest, ease up on the alcohol/coffee and proceed cautiously.13:02
llutzpikaren: repos/mirros are signed but you still have to trust. no way around that13:02
humbolt1cfhowlett: partition GUIDs stay the same I suppose and grub2 should not have any trouble with GPT, or does it?13:02
MonkeyDustpikaren  if they did, everyone would know and anticipate, anticipaten as linux is a glass house13:02
pikarenso its no different from windows when it comes to security13:03
llutzpikaren: nope13:03
gordonjcppikaren: no, it's entirely different13:03
cfhowletthumbolt1, I don't have enough knowledge to give an informed answer13:03
gordonjcppikaren: if you don't trust the repos, you can compile from source13:03
gordonjcppikaren: do you know how public key infrastructure works?13:03
llutzgordonjcp: you still have to audit the source then13:03

waperboyTJ- thanks, I'll look into that13:18
rigarciaThanks Ben64. In the event that I can't repair the drive is there a way to save some of the files?13:18
ubottuTo replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can use the !software package "apt-clone" - See also !automate13:18
llutzluk_: if you update your existing machines and don't do a version upgrade, the package versions will be the same.13:18
raiderturboSpeiros: So you're trying to install Ubuntu on to a USB HDD? Where are you installing it from CD/USB stick?13:18
TJ-libpenguin: don't install it manually; use the Mozilla PPA13:19
Ben64rigarcia: look into ddrescue, if anything can be saved, it can do it13:19
Speirosraiderturbo I also use (this one has my files on it at the present) a Hitachi 120GB drive13:19
libpenguinTJ-: how ?13:19
rigarciaBen64 Thanks. I'll try13:19
llutzluk_: so backup your packages-list (dpkg --get-selections" and you'll be fine13:19

Speirosraiderturbo From an image on my hard drive.  I loaded it using unetbootin successfully.13:19
luk_llutz: that simple ... ? ;)13:19
llutzluk_: yes13:19
libpenguinBen64: want to upgrade firefox only,13:20
Speirosraiderturbo But since doing that, the BIOS tells me that it doesn't see it as a USB13:20
Ben64libpenguin: ok? so my question still stands. why not use the one in the official ubuntu repositories?13:20
luk_llutz: what about the availability of the packages ... if I would like to install a new machine in 3 months time ... not all versions may be still avaiable at that time13:20
libpenguinBen64: site provides version ahead of repo13:20
Ben64libpenguin: no it doesn't13:21
luk_llutz: some packages will come from launchpad13:21
llutzluk_: check the supportperiod of the distro-version you run13:21
raiderturboSpeiros: So you have your BIOS set to boot from USB? Can you boot from a USB stick/pendrive?13:21
llutzluk_: above only applies to official repos, not to ppa etc. those might cause trouble13:21
Speirosraiderturbo I don't have one.  I had a high failure rate of them when doing studies so I havent used on in years.13:21
Speirosraiderturbo also, I don't have the means to get one as I have an injury that has disabled me at least temporarily, and haven't been paid in 7 weeks, and will probably still wait another two13:22
libpenguinBen64: site version is 26.013:22
Ben64libpenguin: so is the version from the ubuntu repositories, whats your point13:22
luk_llutz: ok, but still I think your point may be valuable ... maybe I could set up i.e. apt-cacher to protect myself from changes in launchpad13:23
raiderturboSpeiros: Can I ask why you're trying to install to a USB HDD and not on to a fixed HDD? This is very unusual and I'm not sure you're going to be able to do it... I'd say if you can boot from a USB Stick/pendrive but not your USB HDD then it's not going to work. Even if it worked, it would be extremely slow...13:23
libpenguinBen64: ok, how to replace it with updated version ?13:23
libpenguinfrom repo13:23
Ben64libpenguin: sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade13:23
raiderturboSpeiros: Can you not install to a fixed, internal HDD?13:23
Ben64raiderturbo: installing to a fixed drive, using an external as the install media13:23
Speirosraiderturbo I installed Ubuntu 10.10 a long time ago, and it didn't allow functionality, which made my computer totally useless.13:23
libpenguinBen64: thats my point, upgrade command will upgrade full system and I wanna update firefox only13:24
Speirosraiderturbo I don't want to risk losing functionality, so I want to install without having to mess up my hard drive13:24
Ben64libpenguin: upgrades are there for a reason, you should do them all anyway, but you can select a single package if you wish13:24
libpenguinBen64: hmm, ok13:25
Speirosraiderturbo I am happy for options, but I will mention though the problems that I've encountered over the years.13:25
SpeirosI had four computers at one stage, one of them being a laptop13:25
SpeirosThe 10.10 version was useless and stopped that laptop from being useable as certain programs wouldn't function, and there were no alternatives.13:26
SpeirosIt was just another can of worms.13:26
Speirosraiderturbo I am scared to have the same experience with my last computer.13:26
Speirosespecially as I have no means to fix it financially13:26
libpenguinBen64: but will it replace the old firefox or old version will be left over and kept along with the new version ?13:26
Ben64libpenguin: replace, yes13:27
raiderturboSpeiros: I think your best bet is to boot from USB stick/pendrive as this is much safer. You also shouldn't let past experiences put you off - If you fall off a horse, you should get straight back up and back on the horse...13:27
libpenguinBen64: ok, and is it possible to automate firefox plugins installation via script ?13:27
Ben64Speiros: or burn the iso to a cd13:28
raiderturboSpeiros: you can get a USB stick for less than $10... (maybe even for free if you ask someone nicely... ;) )13:28
Ben64libpenguin: no idea13:28
raiderturboSpeiros: Or, as Ben64 says, boot from a CD...13:28
fpghost84llutz: could you tell me that sudo command again please (sorry, got lost above). I've now created the uid and gid, so just need the final piece13:29
raiderturboSpeiros: It does sound like you're not very confident at messing with computers/OS's so I'd stick to what you know for now13:29
llutzfpghost84: "sudo -g newgroup daemon"  or "-u newuser" (man sudo)13:29
SpeirosSorry, was afk...13:30
Speirosraiderturbo Ok, thanks for your input.  Yes, a flash drive would be great for a one-off experience.  See what happens in the future.13:31
fpghost84llutz: thanks a lot13:32
SpeirosBen64 Yes, it would be great if my CD would allow me to burn from it.  I have CD's, a functioning DVD burner, but glitches in the system.  Just too long with my hands tied, and now all I have is a mess.13:33
SpeirosBen64 Thanks for your help on these many occasions too mate.  At least twice, if not three times.13:33
SpeirosOk, I'm signing out.13:33
glitsj16Speiros: do you still have a working ubuntu installation? if so you can look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/ISOBoot13:34
Ben64what glitches prevent you from burning a cd? that doesn't make any sense13:34
fpghost84llutz: just to be clear, this daemon is started as a sys v init job, will that command set it to run with that uid/gid every time (not just a one time deal)?13:34
=== shiest_nex5 is now known as shiestie
llutzfpghost84: no you have to modifiy the startup-script13:35
fpghost84llutz: ah13:35
llutzfpghost84: /etc/init.d/yourdaemon13:35
Speirosglitsj16 I guess I can have one more look at something.  The problem is there are clusters of problems that are a universe of that song "There's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza", and it's horrible as I hate these situations.  I'll probably start down that line, but these other errors will come up.13:35
SpeirosThe only option really is attempt the USB installation from the flash drive, or a disk.13:35
SpeirosOk, thanks anyway.  I'm gone.13:36
Speirosglitsj16 Thanks too, I will have a look at your suggestion mate.13:36
fpghost84llutz: yeah the script in /etc/init.d is the one provided by the daemon, the relevant bits for startup are simply "/usr/local/sbin/daemon -q"13:36

ROPAI'm getting a disk integrity error on boot with 12.04 on a Dell Inspiron 15. I create a boot partition because the bios needs it to operate properly. But, the procedure for creating the boot partition says I need to also tell the bios to use the newly created boot partition. In my bios, there is no means to point it towards the boot sector, unless I create a new boot command..... I named the new command, and now I am faced with20:15

akimpvl1, ah i've heard of weechat :)21:53
SchrodingersScatakim: first make sure the one you install offers the persistence you want, but I've not used one.  I use the screen option, then ssh into my computer to get back to it.  So when I'm at the office I'm only an ssh away.21:53

hetro_hitsujiTMO, I don't see it there using ls -a22:40
hetro_cd ~/.vim/bundle leads to no such file or directory error22:41
hitsujiTMOhetro_: then you need to make it. .vim is your personal vim config dir22:41
hetro_ok, so I would use mkdir?22:41

Karl9876Hi, I have a laptop (Samsung Series 9) with a HDMI port for connecting an external monitor. All is fine, except when I pull my power cord to go onto battery power, the external display shuts down. There is nothing related to that in the Power settings... How can I stop it closing my external display when I switch to battery mode?22:49

benccis it possible to look for the following pattern inside a file? "a9 636d740 000001a6461746100 00000100000000 <arbitrary data> 000000"22:50
benccspaces are for clarity. <arbitrary data> is what I'm looking for22:50
phuhI need some help with iptables :( what's the real purpose of specifying conntrack? for example, allowing ssh/tcp is written as "iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 22 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT" is "-m conntrack --ctstate NEW,ESTABLISHED" this part really necessary??22:50
hitsujiTMOhetro_: you'll need to have pathogen installed too22:50
ikoniaphuh: it allows establised out connections back in22:51
hitsujiTMOhetro_: then create the file and add that22:51
ikoniaphuh: not needed for ssh as a unique service22:51
phuhikonia: if I completely omit -m conntrack and --cstate, is it really bad?22:52

solaries_hi all22:55
solaries_does anyone know why NetworkManager is forced on me upon each release upgrade? I am very happy with wicd, but manually removing NetworkManager, because network does not work anymore after each release upgrade sucks.22:56
phuhikonia: i think i'm too dumb to understand "are you sending out going packets first that need to respond ?" could you explain in little more detail for dumbster like me?22:56
ikoniaphuh: that rule allows a response to any connections you start22:56
ikoniaphuh: so eg: if YOU conect to a games server on port 1234 it allows that games server to respond22:56
ikoniaphuh: when someone connects to your webserver, you dont make the connection, they make a request and you respond22:57
ikoniaphuh: so having that rule on port (for example) seems pointless as your webserver will never start a connection22:57
phuhikonia: ahh thanks i think i started getting it22:58
mw46hitsujiTMO: I verified that the umountfs script does what it's supposed to, at least for a smaller microSD card in my BBB;-) It took a while to get a serial console working22:59

zapsodaI ran the command sudo dpkg --configure -a and it has said "Building database of manual pages . . ." for awhile (Only like 5 minutes but I'm impatient) now without changing how long can I expect this to take and at some point should I just cancel and run the command again?23:20
Rarrikinszapsoda: man page stuff is usually slow. Did you install a bunch of stuff at the same time?23:22
acovrigIs it possible to log what users do with rsync over ssh?23:25
zapsodaNot really, I just got the VPS (It only has 1gb of ram so I guess I will be waiting for awhile) and Ive been trying to install build-essential for awhile, but the first time I ran the install command it didnt work because its ubuntu 10.10 so I had to change the repos from archive.ubuntu.com to old-repo.ubuntu.com (somthing like that) then update and install again, That was really slow and giving errors about locale so I cancelled tha23:26
zapsodat ran the commands from google to fix the locale settings (after removing the lock directory because I ended the install early) then I ran the dpkg --configure -a to finish the install of build essential and its starting with the man db first I guess :/23:26
