tree_samuraiHey I have a question03:03
tree_samuraiIf I broke grub and Ubuntu nor super grub won't run, what are my options?03:04
Gandiwhat is /etc/xdg/user-dirs.conf?03:04
phil-nsthis upgrade to 13.10 is quite the treat eh? learned lots about config from it, even though my first *nix install was 199803:06
phil-nsjust 5 mins ago had to blow away my .Xauthority file, just to get back into a display manager03:08
wolfzratLogan_, ubottu guys sorry for the incovientet of topic question wont happen again =003:09
zykotick9phil-ns: do you use sudo with GUI apps?  most common cause of .Xauthority corruption (being owned by root).03:09
tree_samuraiSorry broke up03:12
phil-nszykotick9: nope, in fact I eschew gui, last week I changed my system over to xfce and blew away all the gnome cruft completely, only xfce and only lightdm.03:12
tree_samuraiI tried grub channel and nobody was there03:12
phil-nszykotick9: the really sh!tty thing, I know exactly when it happened, one simple thing, I booted to my windows7 partition.03:13
tree_samuraiDo any of u know grub03:13
JENelsontree_samurai, boot from usb stick or cdrom and run boot-repair03:13
rcw2hi, i just installed this: http://www.enterprisedb.com/products-services-training/pgdownload , and i have a directory here: /opt/PostgreSQL/9.3/bin that has pg_dump in the directory.  i run pg_dump from inside that directory but it says 'The program 'pg_dump' can be found in the following packages:......"  any suggestions?03:14
tree_samuraiOk thanks, will try USB, just didn't know if there was a better way03:14
phil-nsJENelson: hmm, boot-repair? was tree's issue he installed 13.10 and no longer had a windows partition?03:14
tree_samuraiIt isn't a boot repair issue though03:15
tree_samuraiSuper grub should have fixed it, but nothing happened03:15
phil-nsfair enough, just asked cause I needed it last week after 13.1003:15
phil-nsand it works very well03:15
tree_samuraiIt was a old ver of ubuntu03:15
JENelsontree_samurai, oh wait. sorry, i didn't understand the problem.03:16
phil-nsah yes, the grub 1.x vs grub 2.x03:16
JENelsontree_samurai, i guess you'll have to restate the problem. i am heading to dinner so I hope someone else can help.03:17

siren_face2000can someone help me pre-install grub?04:11
Jordan_Usiren_face2000: What do you meant by "pre-install"?04:11
siren_face2000I have made a dedicated partition on my external drive for GRUB04:12
siren_face2000I'm in Ubuntu Studio 13.1004:12
siren_face2000I have a 3 TB external drive04:12
Jordan_Usiren_face2000: I assume you're doing this because you plan to have multiple GNU/Linux distros installed and want grub to be in a separate partition so that any of them can be deleted without breaking grub. If that's not your end goal, please state your end goal.04:13
siren_face2000well, I am doing this separately from my windows hard drive.04:13
siren_face2000I used GParted to do it04:15
siren_face2000and I have downloaded & extracted GRUB 2 to the dedicated partition04:17
Jordan_Usiren_face2000: What is your end goal? Why not use the normal configuration of grub in Ubuntu? The normal configuration being: grub's images and grub.cfg in /boot/grub/, which is a directory in your root partition rather than on a separate partition, and (for BIOS systems) grub's boot sector in the MBR or (for UEFI systems) the grub efi binary in the EFI System Partition.04:18
siren_face2000should I just let the Ubuntu installer take care of that?04:18

makarazooptwo, I messed up the fstab once, and we were able to mount the virtual disk onto another instance, edit the fstab, and put it back again08:14
makarazooptwo, that was with Amazon. Not sure how flexible your provider is?08:15
CookiesRgooDi've setup a static ip with ssh into my RPI. When I attempt to connect my wifi dongle, my RPI seems to not connect via eth0. Would anyone be able to explain to me why?08:15
zooptwoNo worries just didn't know if there were any other tricks.  I will figure a way to get it on a live CD08:15
zooptwoWas thinking of shutting the switchport interfaces down to make the network actually down.  Then maybe it would pass that point.08:15
mikeircIs someone can know how to connect by default with the last used network profile on ubuntu 13.1008:16
=== CyberJacob|Away is now known as CyberJacob
somsipCookiesRgooD: are you referring to setting up your Raspi, or a ubuntu machine to connect to it?08:18
tapamohow to connect by default with the last network profile on ubuntu 13.1008:18
somsipCookiesRgooD: this is ubuntu support. You need a raspi support channel08:18
CookiesRgooDi was told you guys might be able to help me out since its somewhat close08:19
CookiesRgooDbut if you guys dont know.08:19
CookiesRgooDlol true08:19
somsipCookiesRgooD: someone was having you on. Try a raspi channel. The forums are very good08:19
Thrasymachus2224/j raspi08:19
CookiesRgooDsounds good. thank you08:19
tapamohow to connect by default with the last network profile on ubuntu 13.1008:21
vincenzomlHi all. I have a laptop with only ubuntu 13.10, booting on UEFI since I previously had windows (RIP). I just installed ubuntustudio but the system still boots the previous system08:21
EmirXhello people... I just need a quick tip... How do I manualy enter location in gnome-commander, like I would do in totatl commander on windows ?08:22
tapamoHi to all08:24
vincenzomlon the ubuntustudio channel I learned that ubuntustudio's default kernel is not signed; how could I add some boot stanza to ubuntu's grub to boot the other distributions' grub?08:24
tapamoI have a problem with my network connection on ubuntu 13.1008:24
tapamohow to connect with the last used network profile ?08:25
tapamoby default of course08:25
TJ-vincenzoml: If it's another grub you could use 'chainloader +1' with the appropriate "set root=hdx,partY" prior to it08:27
zooptwoI have anotheer question the,  For some reason when the system is booting I never See the Grub Menu.  Is there something I am missing?08:27
TJ-zooptwo: By default GRUB menu is hidden unless you're pressing Shift key as GRUB starts08:27
vincenzomlTJ: do you mean, by editing /etc/grub.d/40_custom ?08:27
zooptwothanks ;)08:27
zooptwoJust need to pass the single user mode option.08:28
vincenzomlTJ: do you have a link to an example?08:28
TJ-vincenzoml: There's a better way, to avoid "update-grub" messing with it... just add your "other OS" 'menuentry' stanza in "/boot/grub/custom.cfg"08:29
defk53is their a way to rollback unity to earlier versions? Have tried looking everywhere. none seems to be talking about it. (http://bfiller.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/unity-2d-apps.png)08:30
vincenzomlTJ-: that file does not exist, shall I create it and add a "menuentry "..." {" there directly and then update-grub?08:30
TJ-vincenzoml: I don't, mainly because it is very trivial to do: "menuentry 'Chainload Other GRUB' { ; set root='hd1,gpt2' ; chainloader +1: }; "08:30
TJ-vincenzoml: Yes... create by hand ... if you look at "/etc/grub.d/41_custom" you'll see if includes code in the main grub.cfg that'll read "/grub/custom.cfg" at boot-time08:31
UbuntuUser1234Is it possible to disable USB charging of an attached device on Ubuntu?08:31
TJ-vincenzoml: s/if includes/it includes/08:32
vincenzomlTJ-: done that now, and update-grub seems to have given a positive reply, thanks! I'll reboot just in seconds08:32
TJ-UbuntuUser1234: No. The device decides to charge, the power on the port is a requirement of the USB standard08:32
TJ-vincenzoml: Before you reboot...08:32
* vincenzoml is listening08:32
Merrrrshey I have a question08:33
TJ-vincenzoml: Just "cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg" and confirm that there are lines referring to including "custom.cfg" appearing at the end of the file08:33
vincenzomlTJ-: thanks, they're there, shall I reboot?08:33
TJ-vincenzoml: If you've set root correctly, sure :)08:33
UbuntuUser1234TJ-: This other device is a Nexus 7 tablet with Ubuntu Touch. Have you any idea can I somehow command it to stop charging?08:34
MerrrrsI searched the ubuntu wiki, but I did not see instructions on how to make a backup image of my HDD using 'dd'08:34
MerrrrsI have a 60gb SSD08:34
MerrrrsAnyone know how?08:34
ikoniaMerrrrs: what's the plan, what do you need the backup for and how to you intend to use it ?08:36
Merrrrsikonia, I have an external HDD (1TB). I want to make a backup of my HDD.08:36
ikoniaThrasymachus: that's not helpful08:37
MerrrrsI figured it should be easy, seeing as I only have a 60gb SSD08:37
Merrrrs**backup of my SSD08:37
ikoniaMerrrrs: first thing to consider is how you plan to use this backup once you have it08:37
Thrasymachusthe three top links all explain it!!08:37
ikoniais dd the right option for you08:37
Merrrrsikonia, I want to keep it on my external HDD just in case. I want to use this project also, as a learning tool. So I can make weekly backups of my SSD08:37
ikoniaThrasymachus: stop it - try to actuall help the users end goal rather than just google links that you've not actually verfieid fit his need08:37
ikoniaMerrrrs: ok, but if your hard disk fails, how do you plan to use the backup ?08:38
ikoniaMerrrrs: is it simpley for a whole system recovery, or for file recovery too08:38
Merrrrsikonia, I have an SSD.08:38
Merrrrsikonia, And system recovery08:38
ikoniaMerrrrs: yes you've said that, repeating it doesn't really answer the questions08:38
ikoniaMerrrrs: what will you do if your hard disk fails ?08:38
Merrrrsikonia, What do you mean?08:39
cristian_cHow can I add a discussion group type account in Sylpheed?08:39
Merrrrsmy SSD?08:39
Merrrrsor my External HDD?08:39
cristian_cAny ideas?08:39
ikoniaMerrrrs: yes, if your SSD fails how will you use the recovery image to get your system back ?08:39
Merrrrsikonia, I don't know. Nor do I really care.08:39
MerrrrsProbably buy a new SSD?08:39
MerrrrsSorry if that sounded condescending/sarcastic08:40
ikoniaMerrrrs: you should care as your planned recovery position will determain if a dd backup is of any use to you or not08:40
TJ-UbuntuUser1234: No. You'd have to ask Samsung08:40
Merrrrsikonia, I figured if I borked something on my system, I could just restore to the image I made, using 'dd'08:40
TJ-UbuntuUser1234: No. You'd have to ask s/Samsung/Google/08:41
MerrrrsI like to tinker08:41
ikoniaMerrrrs: ok, so the concept you want is fine, but you need to be aware of things08:41
Merrrrsikonia, ok. I have an encrypted /home08:41
Merrrrsdoes that make a difference?08:41
ikoniaMerrrrs: such as if you swap the disk to a different disk dd is a block by block image of your disk, including things like partition table and private region08:41
Merrrrsikonia, perfect. That's what im looking for.08:41
MerrrrsI will also keep config files & stuff like that backed up weekly. I use tar for that08:42
MerrrrsI know this is a bit overkill, but I enjoy making backups08:42
ikoniaso if your disk you swap your ssd out with is slightly different, eg: different make/model/size you will have problems as the image won't go back "block by block" the same08:42
ikoniaMerrrrs: also you shouldn't be taking dd images while the system is in use, you should be booting from a remote media, such as a livecd to take an image of the disk while the operating system on that disk is not running08:43
Merrrrsikonia, Understandable. I did not know that. If that happens, I'll find another solution08:43
Merrrrsikonia, Thanks for that also08:43
ikoniaMerrrrs: hence why I'm asking you to think at least a little bit about what you want to achieve08:43
Merrrrsikonia, Make a backup of my SSD. It's only 60gb08:43
Merrrrsikonia, Nothing else, right now. My SSD is doing fine. If it fails 6 months down the line.. So be it.08:44
ikoniayou've said that about 3 times, I understand that, but I'm trying to help you see that there is more thought than "I want a backup"08:44
ikoniafine then, boot from a remote media, dd the device file to an output file on your second disk08:44
ikoniaprepare for problems with your encyrpted home08:44
ikoniajob done08:44
Merrrrsikonia, Thats what I need help with. Thats why Im asking for help08:44
MerrrrsI have an encrypted home.08:44
ikoniaMerrrrs: what's not clear ?08:44
ikoniaMerrrrs: what part of the process do you need help with ?08:45
Merrrrsikonia, A bit of help with the syntax... & What I should do about my encrypted /home08:45
ikoniaMerrrrs: what do you think the syntax is ?08:45
ikoniaMerrrrs: you said you like to tinker so you must have checked the dd syntax before asking08:46
TJ-Merrrrs: You could consider using LVM snapshots, which would allow you to do live backups of the snapshots see e.g. http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/snapshots_backup.html08:46
Merrrrsikonia, Something along the lines of dd if=/dev08:46
Merrrrsor something like that08:46
ikoniaMerrrrs: bit more than that08:46
ikoniaMerrrrs: so what's the command you've got now08:46
ikoniaMerrrrs: ok, so check the syntax, come up with an attempt and we can move forward from there08:46
BigBangTheoryXHi guys. How can I find out which Desktop/Windowmanager is installed?08:46
MrQuistBigBangTheoryX, look at monitor. See mouse? Yes. No mouse? No.08:47
Merrrrsikonia, I couldn't find any documentation on the syntax of 'dd' itself.08:47
MerrrrsMaybe you could post an example on pastebin?08:47
ikoniaMerrrrs: man dd08:47
ikoniaMerrrrs: maybe read man dd and get an idea08:47
MrQuistBigBangTheoryX, j/k - you could use aptitude to check on installed packages08:47
ikoniaMerrrrs: rather than ask to be spoonfed08:47
Merrrrsikonia, Debian man pages are shit.08:47
MerrrrsI dont like being spoonfed08:47
ikoniaMerrrrs: no they are not,08:47
vincenzomlTJ-: a big thanks! I am now online from ubuntustudio08:47
ikoniaMerrrrs: and there is no need to swear08:47
TJ-vincenzoml: Great to hear :)08:47
ikoniaMerrrrs: and if you don't like to be spoonfed read the basics of the command08:47
ikoniaMerrrrs: there are also man pages online08:48
Merrrrsikonia, Ok dude. Whatever. Could you maybe just post an example on pastebin? Ill leave you alone after that08:48
ikoniaMerrrrs: no, you said you like to tinker, so do some research, get a basic idea and if you have problems we'll correct them08:48
BigBangTheoryXWhat do I have to install besides Gnome3 to work Gnome3 under Ubuntu 13.10 (saucy)?08:48
Thrasymachusdo some research using google ;-)08:48
Merrrrsikonia, I run OpenBSD. This laptop is for uni. Im not a pro, but I know my way around the terminal.08:49
ikoniaThrasymachus: I see we return to that08:49
ikoniaMerrrrs: ok, so you should be able to read a man page either in the terminal or online08:49
Merrrrsikonia, Just fuck off08:49
TJ-Merrrrs: ikonia has given you the information you need, if you intend using a tool with the destructive capabilities of 'dd' then its up to you learn its options, and the man-pages are *the* place to do for such information and expanded explanations. That and "dd --help" of course.08:50
OerHeksBigBangTheoryX, just the ubuntu-gnome-desktop package AFAIK08:50
gordonjcpTJ-: gone08:50
TJ-gordonjcp: indeed08:50
gordonjcpTJ-: also "doesn't want spoon fed", wants an example posted on pastebin08:50
gordonjcpcognitive dissonance much?08:50
ThrasymachusI tried to avoid all this08:51
TJ-Sounds like someone that expects someone else to do their work for them08:51
ikoniaThrasymachus: it would appear so08:52
ikoniaThrasymachus: it's not cool to approach it like that though08:53
ikoniaThrasymachus: try to get a bit of context and actuall post valid trusted links08:53
ikonianot lmgtfy links (please)08:53
BigBangTheoryXHow can I install Gnome3 from Ubuntu-CD?08:54
BigBangTheoryXNot from the Internet08:54
ikoniaI don't think it's on the ubuntu cd08:54
ThrasymachusI know, you are right, high road and all that.  I am not as generous and patient, but I admire your efforts to help, and the community needs that08:54
ThrasymachusI wasn't trying to help, I was trying to say he should figure it out for himself08:55
BigBangTheoryXikonia: I've to type "apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop" right?08:55
ikoniaBigBangTheoryX: did you just read what I said ?08:55
ikoniaThrasymachus: ok, maybe try to not do that in future please.08:55
OerHeksBigBangTheoryX, there is a ubuntu gnome desktop iso > http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-gnome/releases/13.10/release/08:55
ikoniaOerHeks: is that actually production ready ?08:56
gordonjcpikonia: I don't understand the antipathy towards "lmgtfy" responses, to be honest08:56
OerHeksikonia, as of 13.0408:56
gordonjcpikonia: about 90% of the questions in here can be answered by the first hit on Google08:56
Thrasymachussort of my point08:57
OerHeksgordonjcp, not all users have access to google.08:57
Thrasymachusthough again I admire ikonia's generosity08:57
ikoniagordonjcp: also it's not really thought out responses though it's key words, you don't know if those links are good or answer the real question, just firing words into google and posting them blindly to people - not cool08:57
ikoniagordonjcp: in this case though a basic grasp of dd could have been found from the fist hit - no doubt08:58
Thrasymachusno, they should type it into google and judge the results themselves--that's the point of lmgtfy08:58
ikoniaThrasymachus: they are asking for help because they "can't" judge it08:58
ikoniabut in this case it was just lazy - I agree08:59
gordonjcpikonia: or as you suggested reading the man page08:59
gordonjcpOerHeks: how would they have access to IRC but not Google?08:59
Thrasymachusman page --even better of course08:59
Thrasymachusanyway, sorry for the impishness ikonia08:59
gordonjcpOerHeks: I mean, I quite often have IRC but not web, but that's because I do insane stuff like connect to a terminal server over a 1200bps radio modem from 50 miles out08:59
ikoniaThrasymachus: not a problem.09:00
OerHeksgordonjcp, i have no examples about country/organisation/school networks that do not connect ( without tricks) but there are some09:01
gordonjcpOerHeks: I'd be really surprised to see something that blocked google but not IRC09:03
jam3smhmm i installed 12.04.3 but when i do a update of software then install proprietry drivers for nvidia and then srestart i get stuck at the black screen with a cursor like its looking for a os that it cant find did i do something wrong?09:04
jam3smps, my hardware - i7-2600, nvidia gtx 580, 1tb hdd - windows 8 on 360gb part rest is for linux, 12gb ram gskill, xonar dg sound card,09:05
kibibytecan someone help me: i have a diff file of 2 directories, now i want to make target directory looks the same as orginal based on this diff09:05
kibibyteis it possible?09:05
FloodBot1kibibyte: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.09:05
jam3smhow was that flooding?!?09:06
yoyo09kh3hi, i'm running ubuntu 12.04, apache + php.  I have some CSV files that I want php to have access to but I don't want browseable / downloadable by visitors.  I'm gonna create a new folder in which to store the CSVs but am unsure re permissions to set on the folder??09:07
kibibytebuggy bot09:07
TJ-jam3sm: How long does the black screen remain? how long do you wait? sometimes there's a temporary black screen when the splash-screen is supposed to be there, but eventually the log-in screen appears09:07
BigBangTheoryXWhat's the difference between "apt-get upgrade" and "apt-get dist-upgrade"?09:08
TJ-BigBangTheoryX: "dist-upgrade" will install "new" replacement packages09:08
riyan__plis help me setting pcsx209:08
BigBangTheoryXTJ-: Can you explain the difference in more detail, please (for a beginner)09:09
TJ-BigBangTheoryX: e.g. if libX2 has had a version upgrade to libX2 which would break the previous interfaces09:09
jam3smdo i need to re-install ubuntu since the update fails to find a os on reboot09:09
KI7MT  BigBangTheoryX Here's a pretty good explination: http://askubuntu.com/questions/194651/why-use-apt-get-upgrade-instead-of-apt-get-dist-upgrade09:09
TJ-BigBangTheoryX: "upgrade" will only do upgrade packages that don't introduce breakages in the software interfaces between other packages09:10
kazak1377hey everybody. I have some problem with qtcreator, downloaded from official site. Whe, i try to compile my project, i getting en those: http://snag.gy/n6ZHZ.jpg what should i install to fix that?09:10
TJ-jam3sm: That sounds rather like it could be a simple issue of the PC's BIOS boot-order setting needing tweaking09:11
KI7MTBigBangTheoryX, Its from: man apt-get .. there's allot more info in there too.09:11
BigBangTheoryXTJ-: So If "apt-get dist-upgrade" breaks the interaction between different software-components, then why should this command be used?09:11
TJ-BigBangTheoryX: For example, when a new kernel version is released09:11
jam3smTJ- it boots to the grub fine but as soon as i tell it to go to ubuntu it sits on the black screen with cursor up top corner as if it cant find the os09:12
BigBangTheoryXTJ-: Yeah. What happens if a new kernel version is released?09:12
TJ-BigBangTheoryX: Or say, if an application changes the library version it depends upon, the application might be "held back" by 'apt' until a dist-upgrade installs the newly required library09:12
eject_ckI have .deb package depends on linux-headers package (which is missing in my distro and called linux-headers-3.4-amd64 : uname -a Linux debian 3.12-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.12.8-1 (2014-01-19) x86_64 GNU/Linux). I've installed it with dpkg -i --ignore-depends=linux-headers /home/src/desktopvideo-9.8-amd64.deb  and it works well, but when I use aptitude or apt-get it always require to remove it because of unsatisfied dependencies. How can I tell apt to keep09:13
ikoniaeject_ck: wht distro is it ?09:14
jam3smhmm might need to try something else then maybe install 12.04.3 then update restart then change drivers to proprietry nvidia ones09:14
jam3smbe back in a few hours i hope09:14
BigBangTheoryXTJ-: Ok now I get it.09:14
eject_ckDebian 709:14
TJ-jam3sm: OK ... that sounds like the issue I mentioned... Try this: when in the grub menu highlight the Ubuntu entry and press 'e' to edit it... move the cursor down to the line begining "linux ..." and then move the cursor to the end of that line where you see "quiet splash" ... ". remove those two options and add in "debug nomodeset". Then press F10 (or Ctr+X) to start Ubuntu with those kernel command-line options.09:14
eject_cksid :)09:14
eject_ckikonia: sid09:14
ikoniaeject_ck: ok, so #debian is the channel you need09:15
TJ-jam3sm: The "debug" will cause lots of useful kernel start-up messages to be shown, and the "nomodeset" should ensure that an illegal video mode set isn't done... and you should eventually get the log-in screen, or some clues as to why it is getting 'stuck'09:15
eject_ckubuntu uses same pakage manager, so solution should be the same09:15
Myrttieject_ck: yes, but Ubuntu is not Debian09:17
TurnhhhHi all09:35
eject_ckMyrtti: yes, sure09:50
eject_ckMyrtti: but if both are using same package manager and my question is related to it, there are no even little difference between both distribs.09:51
eject_ckhowever, thank you all09:51
yoyo09kh3can anyone tell me what permissions I need on a folder to allow php access to files but not browsers?  I'm runnung ubuntu 12.04 + php + apache....09:52
thoonaiim having trouble with thunderbird: the systems locals are en_US (which ist correct) and the Thunderbird settings should be de_DE or at least not am/pm but 24h09:53
thoonaiso I need to change the settings for thunderbird only and not changing the whole system settings09:54
Luyinthoonai: have you tried installing the german language pack for thunderbird?09:54
OerHekseject_ck, your issue is unsatisfied dependencies due a missing header package, not ubuntu related as "our" kernel has a different name/annotation09:55
mikiciao a tutti09:55
thoonaiLuyin: thanks, thats an idea09:56
=== Siya_ is now known as siya
thoonaiLuyin: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/thunderbird/language-tools/ as I am not too stupid, but Mozilla doesnt offer a language pack :/09:58
thoonaipr am I totally wrong o.O09:58
Luyinthoonai: which thunderbird version are you using?09:58
thoonaiLuyin: 24.2.010:00
Luyinthoonai: I got the same version with the german language pack, so there should one be in existance ;) gotta go now, try to look for it with google. another idea doesn't occur to me atm, but gonna think about it and tell you when I'm back10:01
thoonaiLuyin: great, thanks10:01
mipsHow do I install gnome desktop on ubuntu 14.04, apparently gnome is in the repos10:01
TJ-thoonai: do you have installed the package "firefox-locale-de" ?10:02
thoonaiTJ-: no. Its about Thunderbird. I need to change the settings for this only program to be changed10:04
thom_rUnable to open MTP device. I am sick of getting that error. How do I fix it?10:04
glitsj16thoonai: you should have it in your regular ubuntu repos, sudo apt-get install thunderbird-locale-de  .. did you try that yet?10:04
thoonaiglitsj16: I'll give it a try10:05
TJ-thoonai: Then "thunderbird-locale-de" ?10:05
thoonaiTJ-: done, now Im searching for the settings10:07
TJ-thoonai: Hang on, if it's running in the system locale en_US then that is expected; You'd need to change the locale for the application before it is launched to get European formats10:10
TJ-thoonai: I've confirmed that here. I'm in the UK but starting it with "LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8" thunderbird" shows US AM/PM times10:11
TJ-thoonai: So you need to ensure your system has the "de_DE.UTF-8" language pack built, and then change the environment for the thunderbird launcher10:12
thoonaiTJ-: how do I change the env var for thunderbird only?10:16
TJ-thoonai: You'd need to have a wrapper script that launches it10:17
ActionParsnipthom_r: when you last detatched the device from a USB port, did you use the safe removal feature in your OS before you physically unplug it?10:17
thom_rActionParsnip, it was plugged in the whole time.10:18
thom_rI didn't unplug it10:18
TJ-thoonai: "file $(which thunderbird)" reveals that 'thunderbird' is already a symlink to a shell script, so you might be able to do something in that file. I don't see signs that it has the functionality currently10:19
ActionParsnipthom_r: so you have _never_ unplugged it from a PC?10:19
ActionParsnipthom_r: as in ever10:20
thom_rit's my roommates, not mine10:20
thom_rI have no idea what he's done with it10:20
thoonaiTJ-: ok it works quite nice (if I ignore the Gtk-Warning). Do you have an idea, how I get it integrated in the system?10:22
TJ-thoonai: You could add "export LC_TIME="de_DE.UTF-8"  to "~/.profile", which would affect all sh/dash/bash shell scripts, I think10:25
thoonaiTJ-: oops. i changed all LANG to de_DE.UTF810:27
thoonaiTJ-: I'd prefer a redirect in bash.rc so that if you call 'thunderbird' in your terminal, you don't call Thunderbird, but the changed script10:29
thoonaiTJ-: export LC_TIME="de_DE.UTF8" doesn't accect thunderbird10:32
EagleWizard420steve wozniak said he program better after a few beers10:32
EagleWizard420what doyou guys think10:32
MyrttiEagleWizard420: that's not really a Ubuntu support issue, now is it?10:32
EagleWizard420of course not10:32
thoonaiEagleWizard420: thats an topic for "#ubuntu-offtopic" or "#drug_abuse"10:33
EagleWizard420that's insulting10:33
EagleWizard420but since I've never been to this channel and don't understand it, I'll take it as advice10:33
TJ-thoonai: that's because you're giving an incorrect language specification10:33
thoonaiTJ-: how so?10:33
TJ-thoonai: look at my suggestion and compare it to what you've typed10:34
thoonaiTJ-: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6807689/10:36

MyrttiRaptorJesus: how about no?10:41
thoonaiTJ-: stop. I don't understand this: if I export LANG to de_DE.UTF8 it works, with LC_TIME it doesnt and I didnt installed the language pack (though surely it is on the universitys system)10:41

Ornitorrincowhy /etc/crontab don't runs in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?11:44
=== Mike is now known as Guest77014
geirhaOrnitorrinco: What makes you think it doesn't?11:45
Ornitorrincobecause I added lines in /etc/crontab but my ubuntu is ignoring it11:45
geirhaOrnitorrinco: More likely you have an error in one of those lines, like a typo, so it's failing instead of giving the result you expect11:46
Ornitorrincoi added: * *  * * *  user /usr/bin/gedit11:47
Ornitorrincoit would run a gedit every minut11:47
geirhaOrnitorrinco: Right, that won't work11:47
Ornitorrincowhy not, its all okey11:47
geirhaOrnitorrinco: Multiple users may be logged in on an Ubuntu system at the same time, and even a single user may be logged in graphically multiple times. gedit doesn't know what X server to run in11:48
Kartagishow do I know whether a patch is supposed to be applied with p0 or p1?11:49
Ornitorrincoand what i need to add on my line? do u know?11:49
geirhaOrnitorrinco: It'll work when you run it from a gnome-terminal, because in your gnome-terminal you have an DISPLAY environment variable that tells the commands you run what X server your using11:49
CatKillerKartagis: p0 or p1...2.3 etc simply define how many levels of subdirectories (slashes) to remove in the path before applying11:49
CatKillerTry p0 and if it doesn't work try another one11:50
Ornitorrincobut if i run '/usr/bin/gedit' in a terminal it execute a grafic gparted11:50
CatKillerit's just easier11:50
geirhaOrnitorrinco: If there's only one user logged in graphically, then the value for DISPLAY is likely ":0", so * * * * * user DISPLAY=:0 gedit   may work, but it's not a good idea11:50
geirhaOrnitorrinco: because gnome-terminal has a DISPLAY variable, while cron does not.11:51
KartagisCatKiller: 0 and 1 didn't work. it asked me "File to patch: "11:51
CatKillerinspect the patch file using a text editor and figure out if it looks right11:51
Ornitorrincothen what i would to do to execute gedit every minut?11:51
Ornitorrincowith a correct way11:52
geirhaOrnitorrinco: A better approach would be to create a startup application that does whatever you want11:52
CatKillerKartagis: You can look at resources on the web that explain patching better: https://drupal.org/patch/apply11:52
geirhaOrnitorrinco: e.g. a script doing   while sleep 60; do gedit & done   would spawn a new gedit every minute11:54

Fool1shHi! I'm trying to periodically run an UI test on a VM having Ubuntu Server 12.04 + Gnome installed. I've created a cronjob using the crontab tool so it executes the command to run that UI test every minute. Problem: I get no feedback that the cronjob has been executed. Once the UI test is executed it should log different messages into a file, but that file remains empty. Any idea please?11:59
ikoniacharacter screw up11:59
geirhaanew: what terminal emulator are you using? putty?11:59
ikoniaFool1sh: depends how you've set the cronjob up - what the script actually does12:00
geirhaanew: Make sure it's set to use utf-8 character encoding12:00
geirhaanew: Window -> Translation -> UTF-8 iirc12:00
Fool1shikonia, as root I used crontab -e and appended that line to the file: /root/runIDE -r /root/test.sikuli12:01

ikonia"locked" sorry12:01

geirhaOrnitorrinco: Note that that is not a solution, it's a hack that will work "most of the time"12:05

Fool1shikonia, I'm connected with a VNC client as root, maybe that's the problem12:06
jam3smhmm i wonder if its because of the i8xx-i9xx intel drivers for xorg causing the problem with the nvidia drivers causing xorg to fail to load -causing me to re-install all the time12:07
Ornitorrincogeirha: don't exist a good method to run X applications with the crontab really?12:07
geirhaOrnitorrinco: Correct. Cron is not designed to interact with X. Better to use the utilities X and your desktop environment provides12:08
OrnitorrincoOkey thank you very much geirha you are the best12:08
Fool1shgeirha, what kind of utilities for Gnome for example?12:09
geirhaFool1sh: Well, there is the Startup Applications, which is a front-end for XDG autostart12:10
geirhaThere's also a gnome scheduled task thingy, which actually uses crontab with a python wrapper that tries to figure out what X server it should run on and sets the environment appropriately. I still consider that a hack though.12:12

Rar9ActionParsnip ok..... but my question is why it used to start with java 1.6 and not with java 1.6...  so your way is as if i start it manually13:25
ActionParsnipRar9: yes, its a hack but should work13:25
Minnenim not familiar with that command ActionParsnip, lemme read a bit about it and i will report back the results13:25
Rar9the bug should be under /etc/init.d/tomcat713:25
Minnenthanks for the quick response13:25
ActionParsnipMinnen: its a simple command to copy and paste to terminal, does it output anything?13:25
ActionParsnipMinnen: what is to read?13:26
Minneni was going to google the command to know more about it, im not currently at my ubuntu setup im at my office13:26
Rar9perhaps this line: JDK_DIRS="/usr/lib/jvm/default-java ${OPENJDKS} /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun"13:26
ActionParsnipRar9: whatver you run to make it work, add it there. You could even make a script then add the script name to rc.local for neatness, same deal though.13:28
ActionParsnipMinnen: dpkg -l   lists allinstalled packages, the grep shows lines that start (the ^ denotes starts with) 'rc' so only those lines are output13:28
Minnenand rc stands for?13:29
Minnenconfiguration files?13:29

rob321hey, i recently did a clean install on my computer with ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and I can't get any of my printers working now.....   The updates this morning installed the newest HPLIP but that didn't help at all. Google shows that this seems a common problem, but I can't find a SOLUTION from anything I read, just other people with the same problem....   Any printer experts here?14:30
rob321I've tried 3 printers too, and other things work on the usb ports, just not printers....   the printers say "printing test page" or whatever job I send, then they say "printing completed" but nothing happens14:32

SonikkuAmericaWell that's descriptive, and I wrote that factoid myself...14:40

* SonikkuAmerica uses XFCE himself.14:40
* philinux got use to unity14:41

philinuxkingfisher64;~ I think the close buttons can be moved14:44
kingfisher64yeah in unity tweak i've moved them to the right philinux14:44
philinuxkingfisher64;~ but position of launcher is hard coded14:45
Raymondohey. I just upgraded my vps release from 10.04 to 12.04 and when I restart it has read-only file system14:45
kingfisher64hard coded launcher position is the equivalent of using a fixed position design in webdesign as opposed to a responsive design - not a good idea.14:45

RaymondohitsujiTMO: couldn't resolve host14:57
hitsujiTMORaymondo: please try: dmesg | curl -F 'sprunge=<-'
TJ-Raymondo: there's little value in checking the current Finnix dmesg until you've fsck-ed the file-systems ... if that doesn't show any problems, you should be looking at /var/log/* for the most recent changes at/after the upgrade, for indications of errors.14:58
RaymondohitsujiTMO: 'network is unreachable'14:58
hitsujiTMORaymondo: ok.you've no net access.14:59
RaymondoTJ-: yeah I'm not really sure how to find the filesystems I need to check14:59
hitsujiTMORaymondo: start with: fdisk -l              to find the devices.15:00
TJ-Raymondo: who is the VPS provider? Is it Xen, KVM, OpenVZ, or what?15:00
Raymondo3 disks. for each it says 'doesn't contain a valid partition table'15:01
RaymondoTJ-: xen15:01
TJ-hitsujiTMO: Raymondo that is because they are file-system images ... do "blkid ..." on each15:01
TJ-Raymondo: So you've got nodes like "/dev/xvda" ?15:02
RaymondoTJ-: yeah. found the ext3 one15:02
Raymondoother two are swap and finnix cd15:02
TJ-Raymondo: OK, so now you can "fsck /dev/xvd?"15:02
Raymondo'/dev/xvda2: clean, x/y files, a/b blocks' (big numbers)15:03
TJ-Raymondo: Good sign :) Now you can mount it to check the logs: "mkdir /mnt/target && mount /dev/xvda2 /mnt/target"15:04
kingfisher64so can I install gnome can I choose on login which interface to use tachyons. I've been looking at kde, unity and gnome reviews15:04
TJ-Raymondo: then start by listing the logs most-recent last "ls -latr /mnt/target/var/log/"15:05
tachyonskingfisher64, yes15:05
TJ-Raymondo: then you can review the most recent logs looking for issues... use "less <log-file>" if it is in that finnix image"15:05
kingfisher64and once the interface is installed it effects the whole os? I really like some aspects of default 13.10 with unity15:07
kingfisher64just not the launcher15:07
gtrepasguys i was thinking of switching to opensuse kde but i have no idea what to expect from that. any ideas?15:08

RaymondohitsujiTMO: would you suggest updating to a newer kernel before running the release upgrade?15:13
hitsujiTMORaymondo: are you on a XenPV server?15:13
RaymondoI dunno15:13
ikoniayour machine should be up to date with all ubuntu packages (no external repo packages) before the upgrade15:14
ikoniaso the kernel should be the latest provided by the stable ubuntu core repo for your version15:14
Raymondoikonia: I have a choice of kernerls15:14
ikoniaRaymondo: how do you have a choice ?15:14
Raymondoweb admin panel15:14
ikoniaRaymondo: then you shouldn't upgrade anything15:15
ikoniaas the chances are it's a basterdised ubuntu build - which the upgrade process will fail on15:15
ikoniait will be some sort of container (probably)15:15
PiciRaymondo: Who is your VPS provider?15:15
kingfisher64when you say safely that obviously implies there's an unsafe way to install gnome tachyons. Have I understood you right?15:16
RaymondoPici: you wouldn't have heard of it15:16
Raymondoikonia: the bug thread says this issue happens on older kernels, which is what I'm running15:16
RaymondoI have the option to run a newer stable kernel15:17
hitsujiTMORaymondo: Since you have no /boot/grub I'd assume its a PV vps.15:17
ikoniaRaymondo: I'd ignore that thread and not do anything until you know your situation15:17
tachyonskingfisher64, I mean gnome in your ubuntu repo is safe it will not affect your unity .15:17

hitsujiTMORaymondo: they may be giving out both pv and hvm in which that answer applies to hvm15:18
RaymondohitsujiTMO: I see15:19
Raymondothat would imply they didn't even look at my account before answering15:19
ikoniaRaymondo: I would talk to your hosting provided and ask them for support on this, the basteridsed builds that are normally in place on these types of situations will fail during upgrade15:19
kingfisher64have you tried kde tachyons?15:19
kingfisher64probably will try both starting with gnome15:20
tachyonskingfisher64, yes15:20
Raymondoikonia: the first line of the response: 'In-line upgrades between major Ubuntu releases is not recommended on the VPS platform, but still possible.'15:20
ikoniaRaymondo: yeah, it's going to fail then15:20
ikoniaRaymondo: I'd put money on it15:20
ikoniaif they are putting that warning on it keep away from it15:20

ruthGuys, will  "sudo apt-get remove pipelight"  erase all commands I put in the terminal for it? I tried to get netflix and it runs but is quite choppy sometimes, so I decided to erase it. Then, I tried it a few more times and then tried to erase it again being it was still choppy. Then.... I saw the pipelight for silverlight in the software center and downloaded and, still the netflix is choppy. What should I do?16:02

ubottuFevix can you try this:: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode16:27

DF3D2TJ-, that is what I have setup that I just *cannot* seem to get to work agian -- amd proprietary drivers for a coin mining machine16:31
ubottuTo replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can use the !software package "apt-clone" - See also !automate16:32
TJ-DF3D2: If the software ties itself to a particular PCI bus ID (a silly thing to do, but you know programmers!) then that could fail it... since in the new system the PCI bus ID could well be different16:32
Fevixnegative, TJ- , keyboard, monitor, and net card still non-functional without mouse.16:32
DF3D2TJ-, true I could hand edit xorg in that case though then16:33
TJ-Fevix: Can you post the new kern.log? Let's see if we can identify anything else.16:33
DF3D2TJ-, or use aticonfig --adapter=all --initial16:33
FevixWill do, back in a bit16:33
TJ-Fevix: also - are the devices plugged into the laptop itself, or an external hub?16:33
FevixTJ-: Only one USB port on the laptop still functions. A USB hub is required.16:35
FevixIt's worked with the hub in the past, but when I applied the updates (I had to use the commands rather than the GUI), it all broke.16:35
Fevixcommand was: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade16:35
Fevixnew kern.log: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/23659259/ubuntu/kern2.log16:36
TJ-Fevix: OK, now we're getting to it! Try connecting a single device directly to the laptop   and see if that device works. If it doesn't it'd point to that port having failed too16:36
kingfisher64okay that didn't work too well. Installed gnome and it's broken unity. Any suggestions on what to do to get both of these working side by sie?16:37
DF3D2TJ-, is that what you meant about pci- id's ? as long as I make sure they are correct in xorg.conf I should be good right?16:37

TJ-Fevix: It could well be that for some reason the power draw is interfering. The most power-hungry device would seem to be the USB storage, so as a test of this possibility I'd recommend unplugging the hub from the PC, disconnect the storage device leaving the keyboard/mouse device connected, and reconnect the hub to the PC... *as* you do that, in a terminal monitor the log-file with "tail -f /var/log/kern.log"16:57

sk1specialor better channel to ask.17:08
TJ-Fevix: The modules should be in "/lib/modules/`uname -r`\" and its sub-dirs. Unless the system ran out of space, missing and damaged files points to corruption. You could do "du -h" to check space17:08

rustuptwist1weird problems with installing ubuntu 12.04.03 on my kids laptops.17:09
demophobiaTJ-, thanks, i'll work on this more later i think17:10
hitsujiTMOkingfisher64: its not 100% necessary, but you could remove gdm to get back to lightdm17:10
rustuptwist1we get to the install screen, choose install ubuntu inside/alongside windows then the machine reboots as if it needs to for the install, but yet doesnt install17:10
TJ-demophobia: I've always had a "/home/all/" for such things, I also mount network shares there too. Makes it simple to know where to go for any all-user resources17:10
ActionParsniprustuptwist1: did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded?17:11
Fevixdu -h spat out a list of a bunch of files and their sizes, but right clicking on Computer and clicking properties tells me I have 200-something GB free17:11
TJ-Fevix: *** "df -h" **** sorry, I mistyped17:11
TJ-Fevix: It'll tell you the space used and free on each mounted file-system17:11
rustuptwist1ActionParsnip:  I did not. but it is the same one the installed on my sons hp pavilion dv2000 the night before17:12
kingfisher64the process I was going to do was 1) sudo apt-get remove gnome-documents gnome-contacts epiphany-browser gnome-boxes gnome-shell-extensions gnome-tweak-tool bijiben gnome-clocks. 2) purge ppa's 3) sudo apt-get remove gdm. hitsujiTMO. If that's okay i'll get going now.17:12
TJ-Fevix: If you see anything with 5% or less free, that'd be a concern17:12
ActionParsniprustuptwist1: you can check the CD for defects too, also test the RAM using the CD as well17:12
TJ-rustuptwist1: Is that a DVD or a USB? If DVD, it might simply need a clean17:13
Fevixhighest use% is 2%, which is the main hard drive17:13
FevixAll others are 1% or 0%17:13
rustuptwist1ActionParsnip:  the USB seemed to do the same thing. It was a DVD. I will check the disc right now, brb17:13
TJ-Fevix: OK, so not that... looks more like corruption when the files were installed17:13
FevixIs there a way I can download the proper files to my USB drive and install them that way?17:14
TJ-Fevix: Can you connect via an Ethernet cable temporarily, then you could force-reinstall the suspect files17:14
FevixI'm unable to connect via ethernet. The cable's been plugged in since boot, and there's been no connection17:15
Fevix(Yes, plugged in to modem as well)17:15
TJ-Fevix: hang on, I've had an idea. I'll check on a 13.10 system here what the unique MD5 hashes of the package are, and you can compare them with those on that PC. If they match, you'll be safe to reinstall from the PC's local cache17:15
sk1specialis there a way to Make my video card work with unity 3d?17:15
hitsujiTMOkingfisher64: dont remove 1)  just remove gdm17:16
FevixHOw can I get the hashes while you're working on that?17:16
hitsujiTMOsk1special: what card it ir?17:16
hitsujiTMOis it*17:16
TJ-Fevix: Check if the package exists: "ls /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-3.11.0-15-generic_3.11.0-15.23_amd64.deb"17:16
rustuptwist1ActionParsnip:  there was a smudge but nothing much else on the disk17:16
TJ-Fevix: Is that system 32-bit, I just thought I didn't notice 64-bit indications17:17
TJ-Fevix: It is, from reading the kern.log, so my hashes won't help.17:18
TJ-Anyone here running 13.10 32-bit and can generate some MD5 sums for us?17:18
rustuptwist1ActionParsnip:  I am using the 12.04.03 desktop AMD 64 bit disk. Do you think there is a better option than that?17:18
sk1specialhitsujiTMO, ah..idk? :] whatever integrated thing this old acer came with? :] i just ran /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p  and it says no.17:19
FevixTJ-: Yeah, I was typing it in when I ran into the amd64 and that set off flags.17:19
hitsujiTMOsk1special: if it says no then no17:19
FevixI'd be running 64 bit if I had more than 2GB ram for it17:19
TJ-Fevix: try this: "ls /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-3.11.0-15-generic_3.11.0-15.23*.deb"17:20
hitsujiTMOsk1special: can you pastebin the output of: lspci | grep VGA17:20
TJ-Fevix: Then, if there is one get the hash with "md5sum  /var/cache/apt/archives/linux-image-3.11.0-15-generic_3.11.0-15.23*.deb"17:20

FevixI ran the md5sum, my sister's Skyping me the result.17:22
hitsujiTMOsk1special: erm, you're gonna have trouble even getting the xserver to run on that17:22
TJ-Fevix: This is what is expected: MD5sum: eec78a8e79102704d61e1cd376c2b8ab17:23
FevixFirst and last 3 match what I can remember17:23
FevixSums match17:23
sk1specialhitsujiTMO, yeah... i had to do..i dont remember. xforcevesa? and.. nomodeset? or something to get it installed.17:23
TJ-Fevix: Looks like the local package is good then, so you can go ahead with a reinstall "sudo apt-get --reinstall install linux-image-3.11.0-15-generic"17:23
TJ-Fevix: and watch for any errors :)17:24
hitsujiTMOsk1special: i'm surprised you even got it to install17:24

vader_so guys any ideas on my thing ?17:43
hitsujiTMOSN3: #ubuntu-ops17:43
TJ-Fevix: OK... well if anything shows up, try to identify the package the program belongs in using "dpkg-query -S $NAME_OF_FILE" which will give you the package name to reinstall17:43

ActionParsnipvader_: 13.04 is dead in less than a week.17:46

FevixTJ-: Point me to something I can use a USB stick for?17:50
FevixTHis install was done with Linux Live, and this is the second time I've had to reinstall.17:51
TJ-Fevix: Was there corruption the 1st time ?17:51
TJ-Fevix: I'm wondering if the PC itself needs attention at the hardware level ... disk interface cables, fans (overheating issues), and so on17:52
FevixNot this kind. This time was better. Last time, when I tried to apply the update, it said that there was a programming error in the apt-daemon or something like that17:52
FevixAfter a reboot, the computer simply said "Error: Attempt to read or write outside HD-0" or something, and said press any key to continue, but it locked up at that point17:53
TJ-Fevix: I suspect that PC has bad RAM modules; start from the install ISO image and run memtest86+17:53
sk1specialso one more. how do i disconnect from the internet but stay on the network?17:54
TJ-Fevix: One of my servers got hit that way last week, memtest86 saved me a lot of hair-pulling :)17:54

sk1specialhitsujiTMO, just change it to something random? and thatll keep me on my local network?17:56
hitsujiTMOFevix: you need to be in a minimal environment for it to work propperly17:56
TJ-Fevix: It has to be run at boot-time... it can be installed to boot from hard disk though... "sudo apt-get install memtest86+" ... It will add itself to the GRUB boot menu, which you can get to at boot-time by holding down Shift key as the system starts *immediately* after the BIOS POST17:56
hitsujiTMOsk1special: try: sudo ip route del 0/017:56
JoelI guess it looks like I should bump the package number and re-upload17:56
TJ-Fevix: That assumes possible memory errors don't corrupt memtest :)17:56
TJ-Joel: no key would do it, yes. You'll need bump the version17:57
JoelTJ-: thanks.17:57
hitsujiTMOsk1special: or: sudo ip route del default17:57
TJ-Fevix: You can get the ISO images from here, if you don't already know: http://releases.ubuntu.com/13.10/17:58

gregf_gordonjcp: we've been told it does'nt work with the latest version of php :/18:36
gordonjcpgregf_: have you tried it?18:37

gregf_gordonjcp: i had php5.4.x installed. but when i try to login from the Frontend, it does not work18:37
gregf_gordonjcp: hence i was told i need to install php 5.3.x18:38
gordonjcpgregf_: maybe you should track down *why* it doesn't work18:38
aryabayubut when i use "sudo apt-get updated" , i got this "W: Failed to fetch file:/media/11/dists/precise/universe/binary-i386/Packages  File not found"18:38

gregf_gordonjcp: comeon, i have'nt written php18:38
aryabayusorry for my english XD18:38
gregf_gordonjcp: the main reason is the newest version of php(or the PDO driver for mysql) is not backwards compatible18:39
countthestars185ActionParsnip:  I changed the exec and tryexec lines to just from the output I posted earlier to just 'deluge'. closed, and re-ran the program, it seems to be working properly now.18:40
gregf_gordonjcp: that is like saying, you give me a hammer and expect me to chop a tree down :/18:40
gordonjcpgregf_: so, work out what's stopping it working and fix it18:40
gregf_gordonjcp: all i'm saying is how do i install php-fpm, as ezra-s has suggested. now, is that too difficult a question to answer rather than beating around the bush :/18:41
ezra-sgregf_; apt-get install php5-fpm, simple18:42

ffledglinggenii, something called lsiviewer.19:25
TJ-sh0t: That sounds like a UEFI NVRAM issue; When the PC starts and you enter UEFI set-up, on the Boot menu, is there an "Ubuntu" or "Linux" or "GRUB" entry? It is possible that is missing19:25
DureikenHi there :) could someone help me to install ubuntu on USB key please ? I tried 10 without success. Thanks a lot19:25
sh0tTJ-, hi! I don't understand the question in the bios i disabled the secure boot option (there is no way to disable UEFI in general), Then I restart the pc and still grub doesn't appear but windows 8 is executed instead.19:27
TJ-Dureiken: You can install to a USB storage device exactly the same way you'd install to hard disk, just using a different target device and ensuring that it also installs GRUB to the USB device, not the hard disk19:27

=== zz_whitenite is now known as whitenite
Dureikenbut grub is not correctly installed19:27

TJ-sh0t: UEFI maintains a menu of boot options in its internal Non Volatile RAM. It sounds as if the entry that the Ubuntu installer tried to add there was rejected and is missing. Enter the UEFI set-up and examine the boot menu options... if you don't see an Ubuntu/Linux option that confirms my suggestion, and you'll need to manually add the entry.19:28
Dureikencoming back19:29
TJ-Dureiken: Do you mean it drops to a shell prompt during the initrd stage, or that the initrd fails to load?19:29
Dureikenfails to load19:29

TJ-Dureiken: OK ... and then, when you choose the Ubuntu option, do you see on-screen "Loading Linux.." followed by "Loading initrd..." ?19:30
sh0tTJ-, should I access the UEFI set-up from the bios or from Windows 8 (cause i think it's somehow possible...maybe i am wrong)...19:30

geniiffledgling: I would just try something like: make -L/path/to/source      for the source code you got19:34
sh0tTJ-, should have i downloaded a particualr version of Ubuntu and not the normal one?19:35
ffledglinggenii, where -L/path/to/source is the path for the libpugixml code?19:35
geniiffledgling: Yes, exactly19:35
hitsujiTMObkfitz: how many virtual machines? what sizes virtual drives? what size ssds19:35
ffledglingOkay, let me try19:35
TJ-sh0t: No, you've installed from the correct media. The problem is - if the "Ubuntu" menu item is missing, is that you either started the install media in legacy BIOS mode, or, the UEFI firmware has a bug and didn't add the menu item when Ubuntu asked it to19:36

k1ldmikalova: jeos is deprecated, iirc20:54
dmikalovak1l: is there any equivalent thing to JeOS?20:55
k1ldmikalova: i think its included in the server isntall20:55
hitsujiTMOtnk: sudo blkid | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com20:55
tnkhitsujiTMO, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6810553/20:56
bekksdmikalova: VirtualBox, and various frontends to kvm can be installed.20:56
hitsujiTMOdmikalova: server minimal or a debootstrap install20:56
k1ltnk: like i said before. cable of the sda disk. its spamming the system20:56
hitsujiTMOdmikalova: or a minimal install from mini.iso20:56
k1ltnk: after that you will be booting just fine (maybe need to skip mmount of sda on boot)20:57
tnkk1l, it's always spamming the system. it never stopped anything before. that's not the problem. sda5 is just a media hd which can be ignored.20:57
k1ltnk: it is the problem20:57
EminentDomainok.. i'm having issues with installing virtualbox in ubuntu 12.0420:57
k1ltnk: again: cable that off20:57
dmikalovaThis page https://help.ubuntu.com/12.10/serverguide/jeos-and-vmbuilder.html implies that a minimal install has minimal packages, but a JeOS install also has kernel optimizations20:57
tnkI can't open the comp - how do I just note it not to load?20:57
k1ltnk: sda ist the meida disk. there is no sda5. you are talking about partitions. i talk about disks20:58
tnkhitsujiTMO, do you have alternative idea/solution? the sdb is the root and the var20:58
EminentDomaini get to this step:  root@ns4009334:~# wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbo                                                                                            x.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -20:58

hitsujiTMOtnk: sda is being unused and does need to be removed.20:58
ubottuVirtualbox is a virtualizer for x86 and amd64 architectures. It's available in the package "virtualbox" in the !repositories, and you can download the Virtualbox Extension Pack for additional, non-Free functionality at http://virtualbox.org . Additional details can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox20:59
hitsujiTMOtnk: *not being used20:59
jhutchinsEminentDomain: We can only support it as installed from the Ubuntu repositories.20:59
tnkhitsujiTMO, if sdb is root, how can i get root to mount so i can login to system via gui?20:59
k1ldmikalova: did you read the wiki page you listed? "its included as minimal install into the server iso"20:59
hitsujiTMOtnk: where exactly is the failure happening?21:00
EminentDomainjhutchins: oh is it in the Repos?21:00
EminentDomainif so what do I do to install it21:00
EminentDomainapt-get install VirtualBox-4.3 doesnt work21:01
dmikalovak1l: I'm not seeing your quote, but I did read "While installing from the Server Edition ISO (pressing F4 on the first screen will allow you to pick "Minimal installation", which is the package selection equivalent to JeOS)." and after that "JeOS is a specialized installation of Ubuntu Server Edition with a tuned kernel"21:01
tnkhitsujiTMO, in boot process, ubuntu is selected, some lines of checks run, and then says can't mount / filesystem, and drops me to tty1 bash.. where i can login nominally to /home and then every command produces error saying can't find sbin env or bash21:01
EminentDomaini'm also trying to get the phpvirtualbox webmin page21:01
jhutchinsEminentDomain: apt-get install virtualbox - what could be simpler?21:02
hitsujiTMOtnk: ok. shut down. remove the cable for sda. boot up again and see if you get the same issue. Not seeing any immediate reason for a boot and those errors are drowning out the dmesg so its difficult to sift thru to find the cause21:03
k1ldmikalova: again: it was a single install iso and is (since 8.10) included into the minimal install21:03
k1ldmikalova: like: they tuned the minimal install so that jeos is no more needed21:04
EminentDomainjhutchins: thanks; I have no clue why every single howto i've found is telling me to install it from the other repo21:04
k1ldmikalova: dont hang yourself because someone said "tuned" there.21:04
hitsujiTMOtnk: if sda has a bootstrap it could be pointing to the wrong place21:04
dmikalovak1l: Thanks, that's what I was looking for. If I'm looking for an optimized kernel I don't want to just assume that they didn't mean what they said.21:05
tnkhitsujiTMO, sda has the boot partition which does point to the root partition21:06
tnki see that in the gparted of sda121:06
hitsujiTMOdmikalova: there is no optimised virtual kernel anymore. you'd need to build you're own21:06
dmikalovahitsujiTMO: in which case, I would use vmbuilder, right? Is that going to be in 14.04 and if I build my own will that be covered by LTS?21:07
hitsujiTMOtnk: according to your fstab you don't have a seperate boot. that could be an old boot21:08
=== mitch is now known as Guest7582
tnkhitsujiTMO, ok, if it's an old boot, is the new boot just a part of the root on sdb?21:09
hitsujiTMOdmikalova: no thats not going to build a kernel. you'd have to configure the kernel yourself, either from linux-source or from kernel.org21:09
hitsujiTMOtnk: yes21:09

averageananana: hello21:10
averageananana: what's up ?21:10
hitsujiTMOdmikalova: using a non repo kernel is not supported21:10
tnkhitsujiTMO, if new boot and root are all on sdb.. can i just block sda from mounting in fstab and then reboot and see if everything logs in? should that fix?21:10
k1ltnk: you can comment the sda line in fstab. that will prevent the mounting. but i doubt that this will make the system boot when the errors are still spamming21:11
hitsujiTMOtnk: no. you still need to remove sda. can you run: sudo parted -l | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com21:11
streulmaover 3 days the 13.04 soap is over21:12
tnkhitsujiTMO, as soon as gparted finishes its check and fix of sda21:12
hitsujiTMOtnk: gparted cant fix physical errors21:12
hitsujiTMOtnk: the hdd is no more. not fixable21:13
tnkhitsujiTMO, that's fine. it's just a media folder.21:13
hitsujiTMOtnk: can you run: sudo parted -l | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com21:14
tnkhitsujiTMO, http://paste.ubuntu.com/6810659/21:15
hitsujiTMOtnk: sda is only flagged as boot, its not the actually boot. but it could be interfereng with the boot process if it has a bootstrap install. it could be trying to boot to /dev/sda then /dev/sdb is the OS you want21:17
tnkso, shouldn't i be able to fix and point directly with grub somehow?21:17
tnkhitsujiTMO,  so, shouldn't i be able to fix and point directly with grub somehow?21:19
hitsujiTMOtnk: no. sda is showing up to the bios before sdb. if anything you'd have to modify the bios to ensure the hdd boot order is correct21:19

AHemlocksLieI have a 12.04 server I need to upgrade to 13.04. I'm not entirely sure 13.10 is acceptable, so I need to control the version I update to, and I have to do it from command line. I'm having trouble finding a guide that can specify update version, though23:28
secondAhemlocksLie, if your server is on production environment, please don't!23:28
secondwait until 14.0423:28
AHemlocksLieThey're servers I'm only using for a couple months, so waiting 3 months isn't feasible23:29
hitsujiTMOAHemlocksLie: 13.04 is also eol in a few days23:29
JuJuBeehitsujiTMO: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6811266/23:29
AHemlocksLieI appreciate the advice, guys, but my main priority is getting functional. Then I can determine if upgrading again is worthwhile. It's nothing so complex that that's too cumbersome.23:30

jribAHemlocksLie: what's wrong with 12.04?23:32
ct85711well, if anyone is interested in a work around for the xdg.origin.url error message; you can set nouser_xattr in your fstab file for your root partition (vfat and ntfs does not support that option)23:32

hitsujiTMOJuJuBee: seing errors for your windows partition at leat23:34
hitsujiTMOJuJuBee: seing errors for your windows partition at least23:34
JuJuBeehitsujiTMO: haven't booted that partition in over a year23:34
kostkonAHemlocksLie, better upgrade it now before it becomes eol23:34
hitsujiTMOJuJuBee: you need to run chkdsk on it next time you do23:34
JuJuBeehitsujiTMO: thanks for the tip, I will23:35
AHemlocksLiejrib, it doesn't have packages I need, and I don't quite understand what I'm missing yet, so I can't verify it's in 13.10, and I intend to figure this all out once I get up and running and have spare time to do so23:35
jribAHemlocksLie: that's pretty vague.  Do you understand ubuntu's support schedule?23:35
AHemlocksLieRoughly, yes, releases every 6 months, LTS for some, I believe including 12.04. There's a release in 3 months, but I'm only using the server for 1-2 months, so it's a moot point23:36
jribAHemlocksLie: that's the release schedule.  Do you understand the support schedule?23:37
jribAHemlocksLie: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases look at the EOL dates23:37
AHemlocksLiejrib, that's good to know, but what I need to do is verified to work on 13.04, and if I can get things running, I can figure out how to do them right. As it stands, though, I have a dozen servers doing nothing, and my main priority is to make them operational23:38

jribAHemlocksLie: as long as you understand you are choosing to run a release that is scheduled to be end-of-life (most importantly no security updates) at the end of this month23:39
AHemlocksLieI do, if I can figure out how. And if I can make it work with 13.10, I can and will upgrade them again once they work. But EOL hasn't hit yet, so I still need to work with what I have23:40
JuJuBeehitsujiTMO: I ran apt-get update & apt-get upgrade and still software-center will not open23:40
AHemlocksLieSo now that we've established all the reasons I shouldn't do what I'm trying to do and I've established that I intend to fix those problems when time allows, can anyone please explain how to upgrade from 12.04 to specifically 13.0423:40
jribAHemlocksLie: if i were in your shoes i would try 13.10 first.  If issues come up that can't be quickly resolved, revert to 13.04 and then work on getting on 13.10 ASAP23:41
hitsujiTMOJuJuBee: sudo apt-get install apt-xapian-index23:41
jribAHemlocksLie: you need to upgrade 12.04 to 12.10 first, then 12.10 to 13.0423:41

ubottuAHemlocksLie: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade23:41
JuJuBeehitsujiTMO: says it is already installed23:42
hitsujiTMOJuJuBee: sudo apt-get install --reinstall apt-xapian-index23:42
AHemlocksLieThey're servers, so I have to do things by command line. I found a guide advocating the use of "sudo do-release-upgrade –d". Will this update incrementally, then, instead of immediately to the latest release?23:43
jribAHemlocksLie: read the link.  It tells you how to upgrade servers (and yes, you use do-release-upgrade but there's no "d" at the end)23:43
jribAHemlocksLie: you can't skip releases unless you are going from LTS to LTS23:43
hitsujiTMOAHemlocksLie: -d is to upgrade to a dev release, which is certainly not what you want23:44
AHemlocksLiejrib, ah, okay, I found it. Thank you very much for the help23:44

hitsujiTMOAHemlocksLie: have you tried: sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-release-upgrader-core23:59
Kanaliayes, at least to 12.04, which is the last LTS23:59
