Guest69573Could someone help me?00:19
gonyereperhaps Guest69573 - whats up?00:26
Guest69573My laptop display is shattered and I just installed kubuntu 13.10 onto it00:26
Guest69573I cannot switch to my external display via VGA00:26
gonyerewhat happens when you plug it into vga?00:27
Guest69573my monitor says no signal00:27
gonyerewhat if you close your laptop lid and then plug it in?00:27
Guest69573I'll try that00:27
gonyerexrandr --output VGA1 --primary00:28
gonyereor try that an see what it says00:28
Guest69573Is that a terminal command?00:28
Guest69573how do I switch into terminal to type that?00:29
* gonyere is looking at http://askubuntu.com/questions/129524/how-to-switch-display-from-laptop-to-external-monitor00:29
Guest69573I cannot see anything on my laptop's display00:29
gonyereare you logged in?00:30
Guest69573I cant even do that00:30
Guest69573or even tell if im logged on00:30
gonyereturn it on and push ctrl and f400:31
gonyerethen type the above00:31
gonyereand see what happens00:31
gonyerewith a vga monitor plugged in00:32
gonyereyou might also try starting it up w/ the monitor plugged in00:32
gonyereand see if that makes any difference00:32
Guest69573Still nothing00:32
Guest69573I have tried starting up with the monitor plugged in00:33
gonyerewhen you turn it on w/ the vga plugged in, does the monitor show the start-up bios screen?00:33
gonyereor just nothing, period?00:33
Guest69573Yeah, nothing00:33
gonyeretry the fn (funciton) key and f5 (i'm just googling...)00:35
Guest69573I've noticed that when I plug int my monitor while it's on the screen goes off and then turns back on00:35
Guest69573you mean the monitor key?00:35
Guest69573I've tried that00:35
gonyerehmm... idk, sounds like theres something screwy with the monitor...00:38
gonyerei have a laptop that doesn't have a monitor so that it always goes to the vga output, though that was kinda major surgery...00:38
gonyereif the screen's cracked it might be worth a try..00:38
Guest69573and this isn't going to short out the motherboard00:41
gonyereit didn't kill mine :p00:41
gonyereits my 'ultra portable desktop' :p now00:42
Guest69573I have an HP 200000:42
gonyereno idea :p mine was/is an old system 76 gazelle :p00:43
Guest69573I want to keep from dismantling my laptop because my mom will flip out unless I am certain that it's not going to mess anything up00:44
gonyereyeah... idk, sorry I can't be of more help :(00:45
Guest69573Well I guess im out of options, thanks anyway.00:46
Guest69573I'll be back later with how it turned out00:46

BentFranklinUbuntu Server 12.04: If I GParted from Live CD to resize partitions (not /boot), can it cause data loss?04:05
valorieBentFranklin: it's always wise to do a backup before something major like that04:17
BentFranklinYeah the man page is pretty explicit about that.  Just wondering if people still do use it, say in non-complicated situations.04:21
valorieBentFranklin: (btw, love the nick) you never lose if you have a backup04:33
valoriewho knows, if you don't04:33

MC1Could I please get help with my laptop?05:11
valorieMC1: what do you need?05:11
MC1I installed Kubuntu 13.10 on my HP 2000 laptop which has a shattered display05:12
MC1Im trying to use an external monitor and for some reason nothing happens05:12
valorieah, I saw that earlier05:13
MC1when i press any keys on my laptop other than enter the laptop makes a beeping noise05:13
MC1I tested it on the computer i used to install to the hard drive, kubuntu loads up and works perfectly fine05:13
MC1i was the person here earliere who asked about it05:14
MC1Im assuming my laptop is not detecting the hard drive altogether05:14
MC1since I have no issues with the computer I used as an intermediate for installation05:15
valoriebut that doesn't mean it will work on the laptop05:15
valoriecan you try a live session and see what happens?05:15
valoriefrom cd/dvd/usb05:15
valoriepossibly, yes05:15
valoriesure, but part of install is checking the hardware, and loading the drivers you need for various things05:16
valorieunless you have two identical computers, I'm not sure that would work05:16
MC1Normally I am able to do this05:17
MC1but in this case it doesnt seem to be working05:18
valorieyou've done this before with these two computers?05:18
MC1with one, but not the other05:18
MC1I am also unable to boot from CD or USB because I cannot view the BIOS or boot menus05:19
valorieyou might have to set up the laptop so that you can ssh into it05:20
valoriethen you could run it from your other computer05:20
valorieI can't think of another way to run it 'headless'05:21
MC1i am litterally unable to do anything with my laptop in it's current state05:21
MC1Im thinking of taking it appart completely and running it with the hardware outside of it's case05:21
valorieso, can you take that HD out, put it in another machine, and set up an ssh account there?05:21
ubottuSSH is the Secure SHell protocol, see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH for client usage. PuTTY is an SSH client for Windows; see: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ for it's homepage. See also !scp (Secure CoPy) and !sshd (Secure SHell Daemon)05:22
valoriewith ssh you can control one machine from another05:22
MC1That seems far outside of my technical knowledge, but05:23
valoriebasically you would be using the laptop like a server05:23
MC1I can keep it in mind if it comes to that05:23
valoriewell, I've ssh'd, back even when I was still using windows05:23
valorieit's not very advanced05:23
valorie<--- not very technical05:23
valorieif you have a server anywhere you have to learn ssh or ftp or something05:24
valoriessh is the most secure05:24
MC1I usually just use my computer as a part-time server05:24
MC1but I can see where you are coming from05:25
valoriehow do you access that server?05:25
valoriewhen you are using it as a server, i mean05:25
MC1i dont mean like a actual server that requires SSH05:26
MC1i just run my server software on it and go on about my buisiness05:26
valorieyou mean a web-server?05:26
MC1no, just like a small minecraft server for my friends and me, a teamspeak server.05:27
ubottuXRandR 1.2 is the new method of running dual screens in !X.  Information/HowTo here: http://wiki.debian.org/XStrikeForce/HowToRandR1205:27
valorieI think setting an ssh account is well within your scope then05:27
valorieput the broken screen somewhere you can't look at it, and read up on ssh05:28
MC1I found out through research on m issue, "Boot device not found"05:28
valorieyou'll get it05:28
MC1do you guys know where I can find information on repairing the Boot device not found error?05:30
valoriewhere were you able to see that error message, MC1?05:31
MC1it matches my symptoms as far as I can gather05:31
MC1when  I boot up, i get a beeping noise when I press any key other than enter05:32
MC1the screen usually changes when I press the enter key, but that lasts momentarily and then it returns to normal05:32
sammykimMay I ask how to upgrade font-config to make sure thread-safe with ubuntu?05:46
valorie!info font-config05:47
ubottuPackage font-config does not exist in saucy05:47
valorieso it seems it is part of systemsettings05:48
valoriesammykim: why are you concerned about thread safety?05:49
sammykimI contribute parallel program so they have to support thread safety.05:51
valorieperhaps you should get the source and judge for yourself05:52
sammykimAlso I am using ubuntu is codename quantal.05:52
sammykimvalorie: Do you have any link to reference? I don't want to make terrible problem with my ubuntu by making a mistake.05:52
ubottuYou can easily fetch a package's source with apt-get. See: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-sourcehandling.en.html05:53
valoriequantal is rather old if you are developing05:53
valorieyou can always get up-to-date sources by using project neon05:54
valoriesee #project-neon for more information05:54
valorieyou can run this next to your regular installation05:55
sammykimThanks for answering.05:56
sammykimvalorie: As long as I want to make sure thread-safe with fontconfig, I think I should upgrade my OS first to support over version 2.10.91 of fontconfig.05:59
valoriesounds good, sammykim05:59
sammykimI found the fontconfig guarantee thread-safe over 2.10.91 version. :)05:59
sammykimvalorie: Thanks for answering me. Have a great day!06:00
valorieyou too!06:00
valorieand good luck in your programming06:00

Guest7333im trying to completely switch from windows 8 to kubuntu on my toshiba laptop without success06:28
Guest7333ive downloaded it to a usb drive and changed boot settings, secure boot, etc06:29
Guest7333any help?06:29
valoriedo you mean that you burned the ISO onto the usb drive, or what?06:30
Guest7333im about to try again. downloaded 64-bit this time06:30
Guest7333ive done this before years ago06:30
valorieis the USB "bootable"?06:30
valoriein other words, can you run Kubuntu before installing it?06:30
Guest7333i just downloaded it and moved the file to a usb drivem, changed boot settings and it worked06:31
valorieso you can boot06:31
valoriethen what happens?06:31
valoriein general you don't "move the file"06:31
valorieyou have to either dd it, or burn it06:31
ubottuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.06:32
ubottuCD/DVD burning software: k3b (KDE), brasero (GNOME), gnomebaker, xcdroast, wodim (command-line) | To burn ISO files, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto06:32
Guest7333the file type is "disc image" i guess thats wrong?06:33
Guest7333ive been outta the game for a while forgive me06:33
valoriethat depends -- where did you download this file?06:33
valorieok, you are fine then06:34
valoriehave a look at the links above and see if everything is ok06:34
Guest7333i tried the 64-bit on an SD card but i dont think it was recognizable to boot from06:35
valorieusually they aren't, right06:35
valoriemaybe that would work on a netbook06:35
Guest7333oh i just looked at that "/burningIsoHowto"06:37
Guest7333i havent seen that06:37
Guest7333i fucking hate win806:37
IdleOneno need for the swearing06:37
Guest7333will those instructions be similar to using a USB drive instead of dvd?06:39
Guest7333awesome thank you i'll give it a try06:40
