siren_face2000 and then /etc /sbin and /bin all have 250 MB01:38
Beldarsiren_face2000, pretty old school to partition like that, why is my question?01:38
rwwwhy on earth do you have separate partitions for all of these01:38
rwwnormal people just have a / partition, a swap partition, and maybe /boot if they're doing crypto or something01:39
siren_face2000I found this to be a good partitioning scheme based on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DiskSpace01:39
rww(heck, normal people just let the installer do it, since its values are fine 99% of the time)01:39
siren_face2000I have a 3 TB hard drive, and I can't figure out where to put GRUB.01:40
rwwdo you have any other OSes installed?01:40
Beldarsiren_face2000, did yo see this for some you have partitioned "Bearing that in mind, the following directories should NEVER be placed in their own separate partitions"01:40
rwwthen just install it to /dev/sda or whatever your hard disk is labelled as01:41
siren_face2000right, but I'm running Win8.1 with UEFI01:41
rwwthen go back and undo the stuff you did, and let the installer handle it all01:42
siren_face2000I've tried it a couple of times, and I think I might have to install it to maybe /sdc101:42
siren_face2000but I may have to create a space for that, don't I?01:42
rwwbecause it will do it perfectly fine, including grub installation, by itself01:42
siren_face2000I have Ubuntu 13.10.01:42
siren_face2000and it's obvious that I do have to put the GRUB loader somewhere.01:43
siren_face2000should I install it manually?01:44

jotarww: no responden ahii!01:49
nrdbSemor_, with multi-threading it has to wait for all the threads to finish first (as thread use same memory for the program).. in multi-process I think the main thread (that started the others) can exit at any time.01:49
Nerfherderjota ... para espanol, vaya a #ubuntu-es.  Aqui todos hablan ingles.  Yo no se espanol o Linux bastante bien para ayundar.01:52

Maadisonrww yes, foo is a metapackage01:55
rwwMaadison: Ubuntu and Debian handle metapackages stupidly. I use aptitude and editing /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove and changing the packages and sections listed to not-a-package or something helps01:55
rwwdunno if it helps apt-get, since I don't use it01:56
nrdbSemor_, I haven't done much programming with threads, when the main process is finished, just before it exits, it 'waits' for all the child processes to finish before exiting.01:56

Viking667hello. I'm trying to migrate my Ubuntu (12.10) from a bad drive to a good drive. What commands do I need?02:29
atomxThe network-manager stops each time when I close the laptop lid, and have to restart it with service ... restart. How can I configure it, such that it never stops when I close the lid ?02:29
quidnuncViking667: How much extra space do you have?02:30
quidnuncViking667: What type of error do you have on bad drive?02:30
Viking667it's uhm, a downsize, unfortunately.02:30
Viking667the drive has block read errors, so I'm getting my data off while I still have some to get off.02:31
monokromeHey. Does anyone know how to set up gnome-terminal to use my Xresources file instead of the default Ubuntu colors?02:31
quidnuncViking667: Okay, minimize use of old drive (keep it disconnected until you are ready to transfer). Especially don't do tests on the disk or writes.02:32
macsxsmonokrome did you try going to edit -> profile preferences -> colors02:32
quidnuncViking667: Can you still mount the filesystem?02:32
Viking667I'm on it now.02:32

fredouillei'm in gnome-shell02:36
quidnuncViking667: The point is to tell how much worse it is getting over a short period of time02:36
quidnuncViking667: Ideally you would have a spare drive as large as the bad drive and use dd_rescue to make an image of the partition.02:37
quidnuncViking667: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery02:37
quidnuncViking667: That helps deal with certain problems, like programs repeatedly trying to read a bad sector (and making it more likely your drive will fail)02:37
quidnuncViking667: Since you don't I would recommend using rsync02:38
Viking667the drive I've got is half the size. /home will go onto a spare drive, the rest of the system will get its files copied into a new drive02:38
Viking667so. You reckon use rsync to copy files from old drive to new drive?02:38
Viking667or just cp?02:38

quidnuncViking667: Yeah, you can't create a block-level image with dd_rescue unless you have 1x capacity of old drive + 1x size of data02:39
quidnunc(to create image and then restore)02:39
quidnuncfrom that image02:39
Viking667mrm. the issue I have isn't really file recovery, I've got that handled. More... how do I make the new drive bootable ?02:40
quidnuncViking667: You should have said so. This is your root parition?02:40
Viking667will be.02:40
quidnuncViking667: You need to set the boot flag on the partition and install a bootloader02:41
Viking667right. hang on, I'll get gparted to do this job...02:41

Jordan_UViking667: Since you're going to use a new /boot/, not the one that's currently at the path "/boot/" (which is hosted on the failing drive) you'll need to either pass --boot-directory=/path/to/new/boot/ to grub install or chroot into the new installation before running grub-install (which is probably the better way to go, as you'll need to be chrooted to have update-grub configure a grub.cfg for your new system rather than the old ...02:55
Jordan_U... one).02:55
Jordan_Uclearcoat_ben: What happens when you try to boot?02:55

Viking667Jordan_U: simply that GRUB will look for a filesystem with specific signature when it starts up.03:04
Jordan_UViking667: Chrooting into your new installation to run grub-install and update-grub will handle that.03:04
Jordan_Uxangua: It makes it a little easier for us if you run "export LANG=C" before running any commands so that the text is in English.03:07

nicko_94Viking667 it really is a pcmanfm.conf file, with the wallpaper location in it04:55
Viking667so.throw up the relevant section from the conf file in a pastebin, with about three lines either side.04:55
Jordan_UViking667: What's in archivo.txt has no influence on "$var" vs "${var}" which are equivalent in this case.04:55
Viking667mmm. I still do that, I've been bitten by $var.catted where I meant to have ${var}.catted04:56
Jordan_UViking667: Yes, but that has nothing to do with what the variable contains, only with its name and surrounding text.04:57
Viking667I did a bash commandline parser ... in bash. It hurt my head.04:57
Viking667and I still didn't get it right.04:57
Viking667it'd do exactly what I wanted it to do, that wasn't the issue. My real problems lay in whatever edge cases I hadn't considered when originally writing.04:58
nicko_94the original file is this http://pastebin.com/QWrRZqJr04:58
Viking667nicko_94: and?04:59
nicko_94and I want to get the location of the wallpaper, to open it later with an image viewer05:00
Viking667loc=$(grep -e ^wallpaper that-file); eog ${that-file}05:01
Arnie__nicko_94: /usr/share/..... search in that folder05:01
Viking667whoops, sorry. Not what I meant to say05:01
Arnie__subhrojit777: bong?05:01
Viking667loc=$(grep -e ^wallpaper that-file); eog ${loc##wallpaper=}05:02
Viking667^^^ that's what I meant to say ^^^05:02
Jordan_UViking667: You're still forgetting to quote your variables.05:03
Viking667probably true.05:03
Psil0Cybinhey guys how can I find the setting that changes how many last commands are kept if I hit up in the terminal?05:03
ROPAIs there anyway to put my entire ubuntu install, including the home folder into ram and then run it without ever writing to the drive again (as long as the power stays on)?????05:03
Viking667check the bash man page for that, Psil0Cybin05:03
Arnie__HISTSIZE i think05:04
Psil0CybinViking667: what would I search exactly, what is that command called?05:04
Psil0Cybinsorry that is why I came here :P My search terms would be very vauge.05:04
Viking667I think it's histsize, not sure though.05:04
Jordan_Umonco0421: Please don't post spam in this channel.05:04
Viking667whoa. lag.05:04
Psil0Cybinthanks Viking667 :D05:04
Psil0CybinI will search for histsize :)05:04
Arnie__echo $HISTSIZE05:04
nicko_94Viking667 what does eog do?05:04
Viking667Psil0Cybin: use caps when you search for that.   HISTSIZE05:04
Viking667nicko_94: it's a picture viewer.05:04
Viking667You'd use an equivalent... whatever your program for showing pictures is called, use that.05:05
nicko_94it says that there are no pictures in that location; exactly the same error it said with the previous script .-.05:06
Jordan_Unicko_94: That's because Viking667 still didn't quote their variables.05:06
Viking667what's the program called, and what does it expect to see? A filename or a folder?05:06
Arnie__use find /use/share -type f -name *.jpg05:06
Viking667and yes, put ${loc##wallpaper=} into quotes05:07
Arnie__use "find /usr/share -type f -name *.jpg"05:07
Viking667Arnie__: he wants to show a specific picture where the location is in that file he showed an excerpt from.05:07
Jordan_Unicko_94: loc="$(grep -e '^wallpaper=' packmanfm.conf)"; eog "${loc##wallpaper=}"05:07
Viking667Jordan_U: yup. That's the one.05:08
Viking667Jordan_U: but in THAT case, your initial loc assignment doesn't need the "  because the $( .. ) overrides anyhow.05:08
Psil0CybinThanks Viking667 for the tip! you rock05:08
Viking667now if I'm wrong, I'll be surprised.05:09
Viking667Psil0Cybin: heh. don't thank me. Wasn't me - thank Arnie__05:09

Psil0CybinThanks Arnie__ as well, found what I needed, but it seems a little bit more difficult.05:10
Jordan_Unicko_94: Do you understand what quoting variables does now?05:10

=== HDRDanny is now known as HDRDanny|Zzz
Viking667jarainf: you find the sourcecode and compile it up, or use apt-cache (or synaptic) to see if it exists in a Ubuntu repo already.05:12
Jordan_Unicko_94: http://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashGuide/Practices#Quoting is a good explanation of quoting variables, the rest of the guide is great, and #bash is excellent :)05:12
Arnie__change the package from gentoo for native .deb05:12
jarainfViking667, didn't find it there. How does one compile sourcecode up?05:13
nicko_94Jordan_U:Oh, I'll check it now, thank you very much :)05:13
Viking667you need to install your compiler, and binutils. You will also need whatever the sourcecode needs to compile correctly.05:14
jarainfViking667, how would I find that out?05:14
Viking667Check out README and whatever the configure script inside the sourcecode says05:14
Viking667sourcecode usually should come with README, perhaps INSTALL.05:14
Arnie__Viking667 is right05:14
Jordan_Unicko_94: You're welcome.05:15
Viking667failing that, most of the sourcecode packages use configure, (from autotools) so that'll also tell you.05:15
Psil0CybinArnie__: an enviromental variable, means it can be altered to display what I want? Sorry I really need to pick up basic linux books to learn simple terms, and concepts I have already in my head but no definition for..I am a self taught mess.05:15
jarainfthis was less fun than I imagined.05:16
Arnie__u can export HISTSIZE=1000 from shell05:17

Iamstupidsomsip, is it really that simple?06:45

bjensen82um how do I disable the automatic apt-get upgrades ?08:40
ikoniait doesn't upgrade automatically08:42
=== root__ is now known as ubuntu59
bjensen82ikonia: but does do a apt-get update and restart the corresponding services? (for example mysql was updated last night and now I can see the running version is the same as the one thats been updated to)08:44
ikoniabjensen82: doesn't do that automatically08:44
ikoniabjensen82: nothing is upgraded without user confirmation08:44
bjensen82ikonia: weird then...I started getting errors just around the point the apt-get took place..08:45
ikoniabjensen82: is this ubuntu desktop or ubuntu server default installation ?08:46
bjensen82ubuntu 12.04.1 lts08:46
ikoniano, not the version the distribution, the desktop or server distribution08:46
bjensen82default install yes08:47
bjensen82server, sorry.08:47
tiblocklol. WINE can install KDE for windows. install linux to install WINE to install KDE that made for linux but compiled for windows.08:47
ikoniaok, so two things stand out - 1.) it's not auto updating, because if it was you would be on 12.04.3 (or 4)08:47
ikonia2.) the autoupdate daemon should not be enabled by default08:47

honeybuntuhow do i install ubuntu 12.04lts (prefer to install /home in a separate partition) on a laptop w/uefi bios (sata hdd clean/no windows os). I used gParted (created EFI bios partition).? could any1 provide a worthy url with guidance on this topic?08:51
ikoniabjensen82: have you checked the config to see if updates are enabled ?08:52
siren_face2000basically nothing08:52

siren_face2000I'm trying to get my bios to recognize the external drive08:53
bjensen82ikonia: forgot to ping your name. last msg was the contents08:54
siren_face2000I probably have to update my BIOS08:54
ikoniabjensen82: I'm not asking you for the contents of the file08:54
aeon-ltdsiren_face2000: well i think you're gonna have to solve that first before we explore what might be wrong with grub or ubuntu08:54
honeybuntuWhich version of ubuntu is the most suitable to run when you have a laptop utilizing uefi bios?08:54
ikoniabjensen82: I'm asking you to check if auto updates are enabled based on the url I gave you that explains it for you08:54
ikoniahoneybuntu: they are all equal08:55
siren_face2000well, I know when I did the install, the install ran with no problem.08:55
siren_face2000it's just a matter of trying to get my computer's BIOS to see the external drive.08:55
bjensen82ikonia: no its not enabled: http://pastie.org/865641108:55
ikoniabjensen82: security updates are.....08:56
honeybuntu=>ikonia: Thanx ikonia.08:57
bjensen82ikonia: right, but would that result in a apt-get update on security packages?08:57
ikoniabjensen82: ....do you not think the mysql update could have been a security update.....08:57
bjensen82ikonia: yes I think so, but I wonder why it restarted it?08:57
ikoniabjensen82: because the process is running in ram, so updating the package on the disk does nothing, you have to restart the process and get it to parse the update from the disk for the security update to take effect08:58
honeybuntu<=will return after d/l my software updates. thanks for the fast feedback.08:58
bjensen82ikonia: agreed...I didnt restart it. I can see in the logs of mysql that it was restarted at that time of the update08:59

glitsj16libpenguin: the software center is just a front-end to apt, so it will show the same error message as using commandline .. also, the fact you didn't run any upgrades for quite a while (since you have 250+ packages outdated) is most likely the cause for not being able to install wine .. you'll have to deal with those dependency issues is the bottomline i believe12:11

ellipsis753Touhou11, Only 512MB of memory so fairly constrained. However the server only really needs to handle 1/2 people trying to load the wordpress page at a time. It's far from a popular website. Apache2 runs 5 processes all the time using 34% of memory and mysqld uses another 10% I believe I am reading "free -m" correctly to say that at the moment I have 254mb of RAM free.

leepingHi there, I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a system, but it doesn't boot up.  I believe I correctly specified the device for boot loader installation (/dev/sdb) and partitioned it correctly (/dev/sdb1 is an ext4 partition, and /dev/sdb2 is a 64GB swap partition.)18:00
leepingIs there anything on the checklist that I might have missed?18:00
leepingThe system isn't displaying anything when I start it up, which suggests it's not recognizing /dev/sdb as the boot disk.18:00

tgm4883_Guest92946, I suppose you could delete the trash folder. I've only really done that on USB drives though18:26

leepinghelheim_, do you mean I should disable "Intel Virtualization Technology"?18:27
FireBepowifabio__, I didn’t get your message, but maybe this is a driver problem, launch the driver checker in system setting.18:28
leepingI have disabled it and i'll try again.  I should mention that I have successfully installed Ubuntu on this box before - I am only reinstalling because the system was compromised18:28

arno_Hi, I have a x86 ubuntu running on a 64bits cpu. I need a 64bits machine now. Will that work if I install a 64bits chroot?18:28
Guest92946tgm4883_: I typed the following command more than 15 minutes ago ... with no output rm -R /home/steve/.local/share/Trash/*18:28
leepingI'm back to the blinking underscore now, so disabling Intel Virtualization Technology doesn't seem to be the solution.18:29

belgianguyneedhelp223: cron?19:00
=== GTB3NW_AWAY is now known as GTB3NW
needhelp223belgianguy: No, cronjob is time based auto runner.. i need to run the script 24/7 and everytime it stops to restart it automatically19:01
ActionParsnipneedhelp223: a simple cron to start the service every 15 mins, say. This will fail if it is running and start it if it is stopped19:01
ActionParsnipneedhelp223: then cron every 1 minute, maximum outage is 60 seconds19:01
ActionParsnipneedhelp223: or find out why it is stopping and fix that19:02

belgianguyneedhelp223: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2036654/run-php-script-as-daemon-process19:03
ActionParsnipneedhelp223: no its a time schedule, but 1 min outage is quite acceptable in most cases. How many times does it stop?19:03
needhelp223ActionParsnip: its randomly stop19:03
ActionParsnipneedhelp223: so, a few times a day?19:03
needhelp223ActionParsnip: i guess19:03
ActionParsnipneedhelp223: 24*60*60 = 86400 mins in a day19:04
needhelp223ActionParsnip:  so, if i set up a cron job to every 15 minutes.. it will open a new proccess every 15 minutes or it will fail because there is one that running ?19:04

leepingI used gdisk to convert the GPT partitions, and then fdisk did not complain anymore19:38
honeybuntuFinally have the install procedure right. I did not encrypt my home folder that is on separate partition this current install. Can I just re-install the filesystem partition instead or the entire compilation of Ubu 12.04LTS partitions to correct a sys error?19:40

user_xubuntu 13.0120:30
honeybuntuhello? pick up the phone someone - rustuptwist is having a "screen-freeze".20:30
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: I downloaded the minimum cd. I believe it was 12.0.4 or 12.10. Wife commandered my macbook so i cant confirm right now20:30
user_xubuntu 13.1020:30
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: The white part at the bottom is accepting text20:31
ClearleapMattOh, sorry! Thanks @raiderturbo.20:31
lost6what the best channel to get help20:32
vanishingdepends on what kind of help20:32
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: Ok finally some activity. Scrern says 'loading additional conponents' 17%20:32
belgianguy!ask > lost620:32
ubottulost6, please see my private message20:32
honeybuntu=>rustuptwist_: well sounds like your screen has an unusual case of something i have NOT seen before.20:32
lost6i need to repair boot sector erased by windows loader20:33
honeybuntuOkay. It is slow.20:33
user_please...how i want go to root20:33
belgianguylost6: use TestDisk to rewrite MBR?20:33
honeybuntu=>rustuptwist_: Just let it keep loading, sometimes it goes very slowly when updating or downloading updated software/drivers.20:34
lost6ubuntu wont load at all. i can only load live CD20:34
vanishinglost6: usually that will loading from livecd and do sudo grub_install with the correct device name20:34
vanishinglost6: this details the process i believe20:35
honeybuntu=> rustuptwist_: thought you were "stuck in a screen-freeze" (crash/dump)20:35
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: Do you think it will automatically wipe over the windows install thst is on the machine?20:35
user_please...how i want go to root20:36
Piciuser_: use sudo or sudo -i20:36
vanishinguser_: type su and enter password20:36
user_user@chrubuntu:~$ sudo -i20:36
Pici!root | user_ vanishing20:36
user_-bash: sudo: command not found20:36
ubottuuser_ vanishing: Do 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/RootSudo20:36
Piciuser_: Are you using Ubuntu?20:37
lost6it said boot-repair but last try it failed to install from liveCD20:37
ClearleapMattwell, try "sudo -i" instead20:37
vanishingPici: the thing is somehow he does not have sudo20:37
honeybuntuIf you selected the default option to install Ubuntu (whilst erasing whatever else maybe on your computer's hard drive) then YES, it will erase Windows operating system from you computer.20:37
ClearleapMattahh, hmm.20:37
user_command not found20:37

rustuptwist__honeybuntu: Im at a screen asking about partitioning method. The firdt option is: resize SCSI1 (0.0.0) , partition #3 (sda) and use freed space.  - perhaps thst will keep my windows install intact? Not sure lmk20:42
honeybuntu=>rustuptwist_: Sorry to hear that, but you might want to double-check to see if your Windows system is still resident on your hard disk.20:42
ClearleapMattI don't use ubuntu daily, but shouldn't /bin be in the path?20:43
ClearleapMattoh it is, sorry20:43
honeybuntuIf you are unsure what partition on your hard disk contains Windows then I would NOT partition anything until I knew for sure.20:43
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: How can i do that? By choosing partition method -manual20:44
honeybuntuStop installation now (sounds like you haven't altered the hard disk drive,  you were simply downloading files to do the install.20:44
=== Dawn_ is now known as Rarity
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: Just power off or?20:45
Tyler___Hi all20:45
honeybuntuYou would have to determine which partition contains your Windows operating system (most likely NTFS filesystem or 32 bit FAT)20:45
honeybuntu(aka: FAT32 or NTFS are more often WIndows operating system file systems/system formats)20:46
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: Maybe if i choose 'manual' as the partition method it will show. Or best to just shut down via power button and start over20:47
ThePendulumGreetings. I just accidentally took a screenshot and now my screen is dark and the application seems to be stuck, as it were. Is there a way to kill the default screenshot application in Ubuntu 13.10?20:47
honeybunturustuptwist_: are you using the LiveCD or LiveUSB Ubuntu installation media?20:47
Tyler___When I boot off the liveDVD:  after the splash screen with the keyboard=man, I get a blinking cursor, then the resolution changes, and then I get a black screen.  Any help is much appreciated20:48
honeybuntuYou can choose manual (utilize advanced partitioning utility) to determine where/which partition your Windows O.S. is located upon.20:48
glitsj16ThePendulum: try to kill it --> killall gnome-screenshot (i think that is still the default)20:48
honeybuntuKeep in mind you are in the midst of installing a dual boot (booting 2 operating systems).20:49
thaniusHi, I'm trying to create a unity launcher from the terminal, but it won't show up20:49
ThePendulumglitsj16: For some reason that one doesn't seem to be running :S20:49
thaniusIt looks identical to ones I've already have installed, but nothing20:49
thaniusWhen copying and editing an existing one it'll work (sometimes keeps the original title though)20:50
glitsj16ThePendulum: you can always install xkill, that offers a point-and-click to kill routine20:51
ThePendulumglitsj16: Seems like Unity/compiz got stuck, compiz --replace fixed it20:51
honeybunturustuptwist_: better safe than sorry. I would use the LiveCD installation disc and choose "Try Ubuntu" and from there - I would run the disk utility.20:51
glitsj16ThePendulum: nice20:51
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: I dowloaded mimimum CD it was about 35mb. I couldnt Get USB boot to work.20:51
jhonnyhey does anyone know how to install and configure java EE, eclipse and tomcat20:51
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: So don't choose manual  for partition method then20:52
glitsj16thanius: what command did you use to create it?20:52
yossarianukhi - what benefits will UEFI give me that GPT+bios boot doesn't?20:53
honeybunturustuptwist_: ...to see which partition  on my hard disk drive housed the Windows OS (usually it is the first 2 partitions - one holds boot/sys files,20:53
glitsj16thanius: just check if you saved it to a location like ~/.local/share/applications to get it recognised automatically .. or use drop & drag to the launcher20:54

thaniusglitsj16: I want it to show up when searching20:54
jhonnyhey does anyone know how to install and configure java EE, eclipse and tomcat20:55
thaniusglitsj16: Tried both ~/.local/share/applications and /usr/share/applications20:55
honeybuntuSome machines come with partitioning scheme that includes a "windows recovery partition" that follows the Windows root partition (C:)20:55
thaniusglitsj16: Nothing seems to work20:55
thaniusglitsj16: Except, as I said, copying an existing .desktop and editing it20:55
thaniusglitsj16: But that won't do since I'm working on a script20:55
honeybuntuIf you want to keep Windows rustuptwist_, then you must identify which filesystems occupy each partition on your hard disk prior to installing Ubuntu.20:56
=== rickyb98 is now known as RickyB98
glitsj16thanius: odd, the desktop file looks ok .. perhaps check the location of the exec command you have there, i think it has to be there for the system to pick it up: /opt/games/meanstreets/meanstreets.sh and make sure that is executable20:56
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: So just stop the install then and start over choosing perhaps alternative install with the hope it will offer a choice regarding dual-boot, correct20:57
honeybunturustuptwist_: that would be the wisest way to go.20:58
thaniusglitsj16: don't think so, it'll just burp out an error message, but I'll check20:58
thaniusglitsj16: Nopes, that wasn't it.20:59
honeybuntuIf you are new to linux ubuntu 12.04LTS, I suggest careful preparation prior to performing a dual-boot install. Know what's on your hard disk. Back up all crucial files and/or data that you would hate to lose in case things go "kerchunk". y20:59
thaniusglitsj16: I've tried alacarte, some random script that does the same, but nothing.20:59
=== GTB3NW is now known as GTB3NW_AWAY
glitsj16thanius: hmm, only other thing i can think of otoh would be doing a chmod +x on the .desktop file itself .. i know it shouldn't be necessary but i've had to do it here a few times to get things recognised .. just a thought21:00
honeybunturustuptwist_I know you aren't going to regret falling back and checking things out before installing.21:01
solsTiCehi. I just installed ubuntu 13.10 and I discover that I can't mousewheel on unity lunacher anymore. It does not work to make them scroll. Is it a b ug or by desgin ? Can I change it ?21:01
thaniusglitsj16: Tried that as well21:01
thaniusglitsj16: But copying an existing file does work, is there some sort of caching involved?21:02

menehi, i have installed tails in a usb but it doens't boot. Do you know a tool that can help me figure out if its a bootable usb and how to fix it?21:03
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: The thing is windows7 won't load. It keeps getting stuck at start up then black screen. Figured I'd get it up and running on Ubuntu till a fix is figured out. Hence the dual boot scheme21:03
honeybuntuOkay. Think maybe its virus related or you "burned" the master boot record.21:03
glitsj16thanius: seems to be, i never really fully understood the technicalities involved .. checked the ~/.cache here but nothing related jumps up21:04
honeybuntuwhat type of machine/model are you using rustuptwist_21:04

belgianguymene: maybe check if Unetbootin supports tails21:09
belgianguyand use that (it creates bootable USB)21:10

boohI try to access virt-manager in ssh -X remote via internet and it's slooooooooooooow...  impossible to really use it.  Is there a way via internet to be able to access it?21:15
Myrttibooh: if you have ssh port open, why not just directly connect to the virtual machines with virt-manager21:16
Myrttinot that it would necessarily be quicker21:16
Jordan_Ubooh: ssh -X is often worse than VNC speed wise.21:16
jazzmeJordan_U, apt-get upgrade is currently running.21:17
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: I hear you. I was hoping to dual boot ubuntu. Try somehow to get whatever files my son has on the win7 side then do away with it21:17
rustuptwist__honeybuntu: Btw. F8 gave me 'advanced boot options'21:17
Jordan_Ubooh: You can also get serial output via qemu that is accesible via standard ssh for early boot messages (before ssh has started).21:17
boohMyrtti, it's what I'm trying to do... ssh -X myserver... and start virt-manager.  Too slow... the server has only DSL 6mbps/800kbps.21:18
Myrttibooh: no I mean virt-manager on your computer can connect to the virtual machine at the other end without you doing ssh -X and launching virt-manager on the host on the other end21:18
boohJordan_U, you mean accessing kvm host with vnc and open virt-manager?  I don't have X installed on the server.21:19
Jordan_Ubooh: You can start the VMs without the virt-manager GUI.21:19
Myrttithis is also true21:19
Jordan_Ubooh: No, I mean using pure text ssh.21:19
boohMyrtti, oh!  I don't know how to do that... I will try to figure it out.21:19

daftykinsmalo: pretty sure terminator is still to run inside X, so it's GUI21:27
daftykins!java | jhonny21:27
ubottujhonny: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin.

daftykinsrustuptwist_: well, first off it's not Windows' fault. is it a new system with windows 8 / 8.1 ?22:29
rustuptwist_daftykins: No. Win7. Debatable. If windows was any good Ubuntu would be a moot point.22:30
LuiCalhi. im having random keyboard and mouse crashes on Ubuntu 12.04. Can anyone help?22:30
rustuptwist_daftykins: I personally don't use wind. This ubuntu is for my sons laptop22:30
daftykinsrustuptwist_: right but being unable to boot Ubuntu is down to the PC, so it has nothing to do with Windows.22:30
Jordan_Urustuptwist_: With Safari you're copying the URL into the URL bar, correct? Could you provide a screenshot of what happens when you do that?22:30
TeamRocket1233cBTW, which would you rather use as a basis for a stability-oriented distro? Ubuntu LTS for the five-year support window, resulting in a distro that release new versions every five years, or Debian Stable and have a distro that releases new versions more frequently while still remaining rock-solid?22:31

jhutchinsodoronooo: How can we know if you don't tell us what the problem is?22:46
odoronooowell, checking first if anybody would be willing to help. The problem: grabbed a new SSD drive planning to install Ubuntu on it and keep the old installation for storage (an array of two SATA drives, RAID over motherboard controller). The Live-USB of Ubuntu found the SDD and installed alright, but it will not boot. The entry it created on the GRUB menu return an error (no such device)22:48

idanielGuys, I went to Minecraft Forge  live chat, and it said I needed Java TM. I have  Java JDK7 already. What should I do or not do?22:54
rustuptwistJordan_U: for whatever reason the 'http' part was making it gunk up the situation22:55
Jordan_Urustuptwist: So it's downloading now?22:55
rustuptwistJordan_U:  so you are saying burn that little file to a disk/CD and try to boot from that on the hp windoze machine, correct?22:55
jhutchinsidaniel: Get better advice.22:56
Jordan_Urustuptwist: Correct.22:56
jhutchinsidaniel: Did they say maybe you needed a Java VM?22:56
idanielNO, it said Java TM22:56
rustuptwistJordan_U:  DOWNLOADED, yeah Time to burn it to a disk22:56
idanielthat's o.k. I'll keep looking for more info on Minecraft Forge.22:57
jhutchinsodoronooo: Post a summary of your problem here so people who recognize something can respond.22:57
Jordan_Uidaniel: Maybe they meant "Java™", meaning Sun Java?22:57
jhutchinsodoronooo: WHat did you try to do? How did you try to do it?  What did you expect to happen?  What happened instead?22:57
idanielhummm  that's o.k.       I'll try something else to find info.22:58
idanielI mean Minecraft Info22:58
rustuptwistJordan_U:  wouldn't it just be easier to go back to a distro that was under 700mb and try to boot it from the 'LiveCD' ?22:58
jhutchinsidaniel: Yeah, I think you also need "and then what".22:58
rustuptwistJordan_U:  do you think the USB boot didn't work cause I was using and and desktop boot disk iso?23:00
rustuptwistJordan_U:  just curious23:00
odoronooojhutchins: I did that already :) The error I get from grub is: "error: no such device: cde9dac2-0db5-41f7-a35e-5462c02e3c35  error: hd2 cannot get C/H/S values "23:01

captblackfor a 12gb Ram file server to be also used as a media/DLNA server (quad core amd) (lots of large media files 3+gb in size)...what is reccomended swap partition size? should I do 24gb? 8gb?23:02
Jordan_Urustuptwist: It would probably be easier to *boot* from a smaller LiveCD, assuming it will boot, but installation via Ubuntu's standard installer will probably be easier and less prone to mistakes. I don't know why booting from USB didn't work.23:04
Jordan_Uodoronooo: Can you boot from a LiveCD, run boot info script, and pastebin the RESUTS.txt that it produces?23:05
Jordan_U!bootinfo | odoronooo23:05
ubottuodoronooo: Boot info script is a usefull script for diagnosing boot problems. Run the script following the directions here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1291280 and then look at RESULTS.txt (or !pastebin it for others to look at).23:05

rustuptwistJordan_U:  the hp will NOT boot via USB23:18

Jordan_Urustuptwist: I understand that.23:19
rustuptwistchemist^:  been doing that for HOURS. Will NOT BOOT!!!!23:19
chemist^plug in your USB, go to BIOS and go to where the hard disks are listed, put the USB disk in front of the actuall HDD and boot from hard disk23:20
chemist^and IT WILL BOOT!23:20
Jordan_Urustuptwist: SG2D has its own USB drivers which can be loaded to bypass your BIOSs limitations.23:20
chemist^my hp recognizes a USB as a hdd, not a USB storage device23:21
rustuptwistJordan_U: IM AT 'grub> what command will make it read from the CD in the tray23:21

pedrommoneJordan_U,  but I cannot specific a user?23:27
Jordan_Urustuptwist: Do you have more than one CD/DVD drive or did you eject SG2D to insert Ubuntu Desktop?23:27
k1l_!guidelines > grep0r lets stop that here23:27
ubottugrep0r, please see my private message23:27
Jordan_Upedrommone: You probably want to make the directory's group be that of this other user.23:27
pedrommoneJordan_U,  I can chmod -R 775, but witch group it wil use? I cant understand that23:27
rustuptwistJordan_U: I ejected sg2d cause it was not happening and also the desktop ubuntu came out of the burner good to go.23:28
k1l_pedrommone: you can set rights to one user, a group or everyone. as rule of thumb you dont want everyone can do everything23:28
k1l_pedrommone: see "chown"23:28
chemist^pedrommone, you could create a usergroup for your user23:28
Jordan_Upedrommone: See chown and chgrp which should be explaned in the link ubottu gave you.23:28
rustuptwisttrack pad not working, guess that's to be expected though...23:29
pedrommonewell, Im using vesta cp23:29
pedrommoneand it create users and all stuff for me23:29
chemist^yes.. chgrp & chmod is the answer :)23:29
pedrommonein fact is a web server23:29
chemist^is it running ubuntu?23:29
Jordan_Urustuptwist: OK, reboot into the Ubuntu DVD then. While some functions of SG2D will work without its CD in, most won't.23:30
pedrommoneits just for personal use, but we are running college stuff23:30
chemist^pedrommone, make a group called same as user: "groupadd username"23:30
chemist^pedrommone, then assign the folder you wish to that user group: chgrp username /home/whatever/folder23:31
chemist^and finally use chmod to set the permissions of that folder23:31
pedrommonelet me see23:31
chemist^example: chmod g+rwx /home/whateva/folder23:31
pedrommonethe owner of the folder is already the group, vesta made it23:32
pedrommonethe problem is that some files inside this folder are owned by root23:32
chemist^then just set permissions23:32
Jordan_Upedrommone: How did they become owned by root?23:32
chemist^add the option -R when applying permissions23:32
pedrommonedont know, Im new with i23:33
chemist^pedrommone, what is vesta? and how can it create usergroups?23:34
pedrommonevestacp is a webadmin panel23:34
Jordan_Uodoronooo: Can you try booting with only sdc connected?23:35
odoronoooJordan_U:  tried, no success23:35
odoronoooJordan_U:  in that case, not even Grub shows up.23:35
chemist^pedrommone, can't help you, I never use those ... you should try looking for a vesta support channel and ask there as well23:35
pedrommoneit is not a problem with vesta, Im having some issues to deal with permissions23:36
odoronoooJordan_U:  forgot to say -- my BIOS doesn't support AHCI and doesn't even see the drive... that's i guess why it's not booting on its own. My intention would be to install Grub on the RAID of sda and sdb, and boot sdc from there.23:36
Jordan_Uodoronooo: What does happen? Looking closer it looks like it should fail, but still get you a grub rescue prompt.23:36
chemist^pedrommone yes, but you said that vesta is messsing around with usergroups and permissions...23:36
k1l_pedrommone: use chown to set the right owner of that folder/files.23:36
odoronoooJordan_U: it just tells me there's no valid device and asks me to press a key to try again.23:37
pedrommonejust tell me one thing, when I do ls -al, the first column is the owner and the second is what?23:37
odoronoooJordan_U: basically as if there was no bootloader installed. (no sign of grub or anything else whatsoever)23:38
Jordan_Uodoronooo: That would have been a good piece of info to give earlier :) Grub (like all bootloaders) uses the BIOS to access drives by default. Unlike most bootloaders though, grub *can* use its own native drivers instead.23:38

k1l_pedrommone: is there a user mapwards?23:40
