SergeyServerusr13 yes I did00:05

SergeyServer just tell me how to go back00:06
SeveasDextralus: all those commands should work in recovery mode00:06
DextralusSeveas: That is good to know; however, I have not used recovery mode before >.>00:07
INR_Universec|oneman: I don't think so. You connect to the X server, not create a X server on your own.00:07
SergeyServerk plz see this http://paste.ubuntu.com/7019145/ what do I have to install now?00:07
DextralusI do not have the implied level of knowledge and comfort for the solution. Should I go to "failsafeX" and go to terminal from there?00:08
SeveasSergeyServer: libbz2-dev00:08
SeveasDextralus: recovery mode is a boot option you can choose from the boot menu just before the ubuntu logo appears. It doesn't launch a gui, just a terminal00:09
SergeyServerE: Invalid operation libbz2-dev00:09
SeveasSergeyServer: you missed the word 'install' in the command :)00:09
SergeyServerthis linux :D00:09

freerouteI do have precise backports in my sources.lst, but I'm not sure how I can install stuff from it01:17
Daekdroomfreeroute, there wasn't any backported weechat update for precise (or any other ubuntu version, for that matter)01:19
=== anonymous is now known as Guest78894
freerouteDaekdroom: oh, so that means there is no later version of weechat in any of the official PPA's other than 0.3.7-1 ?01:20
freeroute(which seems to be the latest in 12.04)01:20
Daekdroomfreeroute, the development version of Ubuntu has 0.4.2, for an example. There might be a PPA (unofficial or official, idk) for a newer version for precise01:21
freerouteDaekdroom: thanks, I guess I'll just wait for 14.04 to come out then :)01:22
Daekdroomfreeroute, I found this weechat PPA, btw https://launchpad.net/~nesthib/+archive/weechat-stable01:22

freeroutedoes it require a lot of effort to compile weechat btw?01:29
nesthibno, you can even setup your own ppa01:29
freeroutealso, if I choose the latest git version, would I also receive the security updates?01:30
nesthibI update weechat PPA for every commit of the git01:30
CorvetteIsn't Ubuntu so secure that if you should decide never ever to update it you'll still be fine?01:30
nesthiband I update weechat-stable PPA for each major version + security updates in case of vulnerability01:31
freerouteCorvette: I would definitely recommend updating, as updates carry security updates with them01:31

=== Zachary_DuBois is now known as Zachary_DuBois|A
CorvetteFor instance I know that when I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my machine everything worked flawlessly. And then as time went on and I did more and more updates, progressively less things worked01:33
attraperevesfreeroute, nope, wired.01:33
nesthibno freeroute, the git version is very stable, the dev publishes only tested code01:33
attraperevesfreeroute, I've tried unplugging and replugging the ethernet cable to no avail.01:33
CorvetteSo I speculate that my computing experience would be better if I just turned off the update checker01:34
Dextraluser, nevermind. most basic problem of all. wrong password01:34
nesthibI can't say I will never happen, but I'm using the git version on a daily basis with tons of functionalities and I have no issue01:34
nesthibCorvette: if you initially have a problem, maybe updates are not the solution, and you still need to fix something else ;)01:35
freerouteCorvette: I too have experienced the breakages, but they are all limited to Chromium release mostly (I also have 12.04). Although I'm running Elementary OS, not sure if that puts me in a different position though.01:35
nesthibupdates are not magically fixing problems01:35
Corvettenesthib that's not what I'm saying. I'm saying if initially you have no problems, then why update when you run the risk of creating problems01:36
Corvettedon't fix what's not broken01:36
nesthibto have new functionnalities? to fix vulnerabilities? to fix bugs you were not aware of?01:36
CorvetteYes we would all love to have the latest functionalities and less vulnerabilities but I feel that in our ambitions for such relatively menial things we often sacrifice real, important features01:37
nesthibotherwise I agree, it's not always needed to use the bleeding edge version of every software ;)01:38

UBUNTUMAN6digerati_, my chipset is raliink i believe02:04
digerati_xjkx: apt-get?02:04
digerati_UBUNTUMAN6: follow the instructions on patching02:04
xjkxdigerati_: no, its the graphical, type software-center on terminal02:04
digerati_xjkx: it prompts for password when you attempt to install software02:05
digerati_just like the terminal would if you apt-get install'ed something02:05
xjkxdigerati_: so mine must be broken its not asking02:05
digerati_xjkx: anything under the "progress" tab?02:05
BillyZanedigerati_, good idea02:05
sudormrfso looks like pgl it is02:06
digerati_BillyZane: you're tracing it down to the source02:06

UBUNTUMAN6digerati_, https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Linksys_WUSB600N_v102:06
BillyZanedigerati, i recently updated my computer. if my network card is on-board, do i still need a new firmware?02:06
UBUNTUMAN6digerati_, thats the adapter02:06
digerati_one might be bugged up and not letting the software cetner take lock02:06
digerati_UBUNTUMAN6: cool02:06
UBUNTUMAN6anyone here familiar with aircrack?02:06
digerati_BillyZane: Check your restricted drivers list02:07
UBUNTUMAN6digerati_, seems to be  RT2870, right?02:07
xjkxdigerati_: I'll just try rebooting already lets see brb02:07
digerati_BillyZane: for instance my ATI graphics driver was in there02:07
Bending_Spoonsdoes anyone in here know whether Canonical runs new Ubuntu Touch app submissions to the Ubuntu Software Center through static and dynamic code analysis before approving each app?02:07
digerati_UBUNTUMAN6: i dunno, check that list02:07

UBUNTUMAN6digerati_, The entire rt2x00 family: rt2400pci, rt2500pci, rt2500usb, rt2800pci and rt2800usb can inject and monitor. Including PCI and USB chips on b/g/n.02:08
digerati_then it looks like you dont have to patch02:08
UBUNTUMAN6digerati_, what do you mean dont have to patch?02:08
digerati_UBUNTUMAN6: i have a very old article on getting aircrack running, at the end i run a monitor/injection test on the card02:08
digerati_UBUNTUMAN6: http://timashley.me/node/13202:08
UBUNTUMAN6digerati_, meaning dont need to download drivers?02:08
UBUNTUMAN6digerati_, s of kernels >= 2.6.26 there are mac80211 based drivers which should give better support for almost all Ralink chipsets.02:08
digerati_check your kernel02:09
digerati_its just letting you know it will work better with the mac driver in that kernel02:09
digerati_testing out a new irc client on linux (smuxi) and it auto joined me here02:10
UBUNTUMAN6digerati_, ahh i see02:10
UBUNTUMAN6digerati_, so youre saying i dont need drivers?02:11
digerati_UBUNTUMAN6: not when running that specific kernel with the mac80211 drivers02:11
digerati_i mean it should work in whatever you're running02:11

UBUNTUMAN6digerati_, lol, ive been doing that the whole day02:12
digerati_Akayllin: i use the same and havent had any issues02:12
digerati_Akayllin: i also use Yumi usb boot installer on windows to do the same02:12
digerati_Akayllin: actually Yumi released a linux version with 2.002:12
Akayllincant use the windows machine. it has no internet02:13
xjkxdigerati_: didnt work rebooting but I found out on google I need this on startup (gnome users probably dont need because it comes to already do it, I use openbox) /usr/lib/policykit-1-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 thanks anyway02:13
Akayllinand no blank cds to test either.02:13
digerati_Akayllin: Grab Yumi, it does the exact same as unetbootin02:13
digerati_maybe it will have better luck02:13
digerati_Akayllin: i also suggest firing up gparted and getting a new partition table created02:13

sross_lickalott, well my recent experience has been that only teamviewer, splashtop and steam in-home streaming have very good compression to make streaming graphics nice, but maybe somebody will know of another one that's decent.04:33
Bashing-ombasil: WOW ! how about -> sudo lspci | grep Ethernet ?04:34
UBUNTUMAN6the script is in my downloads folder in the home file04:34

verses_I have been facing problem with unity. it doesnt start into unity 2d but always in  a plain unity without any effects. for other users on the same machine, it's working fine. but for me it's not working. when I run unity --reset  it gets stuck at "setting udpate run_key"  and nothing happens. what's the problem.04:55
Bashing-ombasil: eth0 was working, just do not know if it is to the outside world. Need to see what "networking: has to say.04:55
sross_dchriswalters, it's a good idea to do that.  you can change the path in your .bashrc file in your home directory rather than creating a .bash_profile.  the difference is .bashrc gets invoked when you open a new terminal session.  .bash_profile gets executed when you log in04:55

t3b8Duck Duck Go is great Tor is great... But for total privacy05:34
rwwyou realize that your MAC address is only visible to computers on the same subnet as you, yes?05:34

ubottuCocolabaloune: A high percentage of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.05:37
rwwSchrodingersScat: they're using Tor, MITM is presumably not an issue (because encrypted)05:37
Cocolabalounei have a fresh installation of ubuntu server (12.04) but I can figure out to use wget command. It's like I can't access to internet with the server05:38
t3b8My real question was answered by rww05:38
Bashing-ombasil: see: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/network-configuration.html .05:38
basilyou reckon that will have my answer <bashing-om>?05:41

Bashing-ombasil: update: for 12.04 (same same I think) https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/network-configuration.html. Then we have commonality to work from.05:44
t3b8thanks ubottu05:44
t3b8its macchanger, thats what i was trying to remember05:45
Bashing-ombasil: see my last, I bet we have to add eth1 to the config file "/etc/network/interfaces/etc/network/interfaces" .05:46
t3b8is tor still safe with ubu?05:46
ubottuTor is a program to route connections through several servers for anonymity. It is in Ubuntu's repositories, but the Tor Project recommends using their Tor packages due to past issues with Ubuntu's. For setup info, see option (2) of https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en | To use Tor on freenode, see !tor-sasl05:46
t3b8tor has updated their browser with a captcha that is impossible ... the old version is better05:48
SchrodingersScatt3b8: yeh, who needs security?05:49
t3b8well, have you tried to read those new captcha images?05:49
t3b8this is getting off topic?05:50
elkyt3b8: we aren't the tor project, so you probably want to take your issue up with them directly05:51

basilI can't connect to the internet!!06:10

t3b8i mean ifcinfig..06:12
Bashing-ombasil: so far as I can tell from the outputs, eth0 is a working interface, and eth1 has no IP acquired.06:15

xjkxHow does paid softwares in Software Center work ? I mean, what if I reinstall my system, do I lose it ? Do I get free updates ? How does it all work09:12
bekksxjkx: oud ont have to purchase it again - but it a decision of the vendor wether updates have to be paid.09:16
xjkxbekks: yea but what if I format ubuntu, how do I get it back without paying again09:17
bekksxjkx: Then you just redownload the software.09:18
xjkxbekks: how do they know I already paid09:20
yellabs-r2hi there, in unity , how do i delete history ?09:21
bekksxjkx: You have to enter your credentials for buyong and paying.09:21

llutzSenor: sorry no idea, i never used lvs, only heard about years ago09:46
DomaldelPerhaps, but I'm using the norwegian version, and unless you're good in ubuntu *and* norwegian you might run into some problems, non of the programs are named in anything english ;-)09:46
DomaldelNor are any of the commands.09:46
bekksSenor: The "virtual" IP visible to the client is the external IP of the load balancer. The "LAN/WAN" behin that is seperated from the client.09:46
DomaldelAt least not as far as I can see.09:46
DomaldelI'm trying to follow this guide: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-ubuntu09:47
bekksDomaldel: Then you might ask in #ubuntu-no? :)09:47
Senorbekks: ok  ,so  when is that virtual ip used for  service?09:48
bekksSenor: Thats one possibility of a setup. The other one is a flat network, where the loadbalance just redirects to IPs visible to the client, and just dispatches services.09:48
DomaldelThanks, *that* was what I was asking for, if such a channel existed, didn't find one at first search =)09:48

MarkDaviesis it possible to log in as mysql user providing that this account doesn't have any password set?10:04
GodSlayeryou mean login the mysql server?10:04
bekksMarkDavies: If your mysql users do not have passwords, it is open to every attacker.10:04
xzynththe problem is i can't open/mount my partition..the authentication bar is blinking and after a while is says error and not authorized..what will i do???10:05
MarkDaviesbekks: I mean in /etc/shadow in the password field ! is set10:05
bekksMarkDavies: That file has nothing to do with mysql at all.10:05
MarkDaviesbekks: I am speaking about   mysql    user on my Unix box10:05
bekksMarkDavies: And /etc/shadow has nothing to do with mysql. On every linux/unix box.10:06
bekksMarkDavies: So do your mysql users have passwords set or not?10:06
MarkDaviesbekks: ok, more generally: is it possible to change user ID to Unix user abcdef providing that abcdef has ! in the password field in /etc/shadow10:07
bekksMarkDavies: The mysql user in /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow is for running the mysql processes. Not for logging into mysql.10:07
bekksMarkDavies: General answer: sure.10:08
MarkDaviesbekks: and I need to log as it10:08
bekksMarkDavies: You cannot.10:08
MarkDaviesbekks: and it exactly what I wanted to know, thank you10:08
bekksMarkDavies: There is no "mysql" database user, and the mysql system user is disabled.10:08
MarkDaviesbekks: forget about that mysql, I'm all the time speaking in pure Unix terms10:08
MarkDaviesno databases so far10:09
bekksMarkDavies: generally, you should never ever allow system service users to log in, for security reasons.10:09
MarkDaviesbekks: I know it. But mysql manual recommends to do it in case you've forgotten mysql root password. That why I'm asking.10:10
bekksMarkDavies: Allowing that, attackers are only one papssword away from controlling your service and possibly your server.10:10

Capprenticejackarg, Okay, here i can see ShadowWalker said - Just install the DirectX version from the Skyrim directory. so Im guessing you have to install the DirectX 10 from Skyrim directory. You can use the "d3dx10" package in PlayonLinu.10:53
jackargCapprentice: so I install that in the steam tab, and it should work?10:53

cristian_cThen, another question:11:12
Nosophorusi've installed gawk from source and the update manager wants to downgrade it to the repo's gawk version. why is that happening?11:13
cristian_cI installed qtconfig-qt411:14
thedoctarhave any of you guys tried aTunes?11:14
cristian_cI found that when I open the configuration tool of qt, I make a change to the font and save, the new value is written to Trolltech.conf11:14
streulmahello, Is there a way to do setpci default in grub? which file can I edit?11:15
cristian_cwhen I open 'Qt Configuration', the old settings always appear as if the GUI were to load the configuration from somewhere else, rather than recover from Trolltech.conf11:15
cristian_cHow can I make sure that the Qt configuration tool applies the settings contained in that file?11:15
cristian_cAny ideas?11:16

bekksSergeyServer: Just start putty.11:39
Nosophorusbekks: i installed from the source using configure+make+checkinstall11:39
SergeyServerhow to start it? sorry I am a very newbie11:39
Nosophorusbekks: checkinstall, by the way, does creat a .deb file11:39
bekksNosophorus: I know11:40
Nosophorusbekks: so, that's may be the reason for the downgrading?11:40
MarkDaviesbekks: I don't understand why it would be a nonsense11:40
SergeyServerbekks how do I start putty?11:41
Ben64MarkDavies: its not the correct way to get a root shell, it can cause problems. do not suggest it in here11:41
bekksSergeyServer: I never used Putty on Linux - I used it on Windows only.11:41
bekksNosophorus: The reason is, that you package management system doesnt know anything about this deb. If you want to keep it, you have to pin that version.11:42
bekksMarkDavies: http://us.generation-nt.com/answer/sudo-su-sudo-help-203477842.html11:42
MarkDaviesBen64: perhaps, but I can't see why11:43

SergeyServerllutz: so my pgrep ssh is 1564, what now?12:01
llutzSergeyServer: missed the beat12:02
SergeyServerBen64: as far as I got it - putty is like teamviewer, so currently im trying to get it to work12:02
SergeyServerllutz what?12:02
Seveascgt: no. but it has a Recommends: on unity-greeter, so you'll want to install with apt-get --no-install-recommends install lightdm12:02
Ben64SergeyServer: putty is not at all like teamviewer12:02
cgtSeveas: ok, thanks12:02
Ben64SergeyServer: also, putty is a windows program, nothing to do with #ubuntu12:03
SergeyServerBen64: I actually don't know myself what I am doing exactly, but the point that it has to end == I must get my hostbot working12:03

SergeyServerI got installed putty onto my windows laptop, and I am trying to connect to my ubuntu server using it12:03
SeveasBen64: very good question :)12:03
Ben64SergeyServer: ok, thats a good start. make sure you have ssh running on the server12:04
SergeyServerhow can I check it?12:04
Ben64pastebin the output of "sudo lsof -i :22"12:04
SergeyServerand do you write names and add : to send it red text to the reciepent?12:05
onltyor "sudo lsof -i :22 | pastebinit"12:05
SergeyServerit doesn't write anything except going on next line12:05
Ben64usually any line containing someones name comes up as red for them, depends on client12:05
Ben64then you're not running an ssh server, explains the connection refused12:05

zagibuanyone got a recommendation for a good laptop with hw 3d?12:10
bekks!hcl | zagibu12:10
ubottuzagibu: For lists of supported hardware on Ubuntu see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport - To help debugging and improving hardware detection, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingHardwareDetection12:10
SergeyServerBen64: thanks very much, you helped me with what I needed.12:10
AlanBellzagibu: you would be pushed to find one without hardward 3d accelleration these days12:10
Ben64SergeyServer: no problem. just remember next time - more details!12:10
zagibui am talking about hw accel in ubuntu with best possible opengl support12:11
zagibualso, those certified lists are terrible for searching, you have no idea how old a laptop is, etc.12:11
=== UKn0Meh is now known as UKn0Me
bekkszagibu: Then look out for the model of your choice, and check the graphics adapter support afterwards.12:12
AlanBellzagibu: yeah, the lists are hard to do, they keep being outdated, and hardware support varies over time, generally everything you could possibly get now, will work perfectly fast enough for the accellerated compiz powered desktop12:12
AlanBellzagibu: going forward, things with an intel chipset will work with Mir and stuff with AMD or nvidea chipsets will probably also work with the open source drivers (which are fast, are accellerated, but arguably the closed ones are a touch "better")12:14
AlanBellzagibu: on a laptop, the screen consideration to concentrate on is the resolution you want, not the graphics chipset12:15
zagibuno, i want to do opengl dev, so I need good opengl support with recent capabilities, not something that's stuck on OpenGL 2.1 or something12:21
bekksThen you need to look out for some hardware thats supporting it.12:23
bekkszagibu: And after finding it, you hav to check the Ubuntu support for that hardware.12:23
zagibuit's a pain in the ass, maybe I'll just by from one of those linux laptop vendors12:24
bekkszagibu: Which will not change what you have to do.12:24
kostkonzagibu, start from system76.com12:24
zagibuthe problem with system76.com is that the smaller formats have really lackluster GPUs12:25
zagibuand I don't want a 17" monster12:26
bekkszagibu: Then search the website of your preferred vendor.12:26
bekkszagibu: It isnt an Ubuntu issue, entirely :)12:26
zagibuyeah, it's true12:26
porksaucezagibu: the dell spx 13 developer edition comes with ubuntu 12.04 pre-installed, which might be a good option12:27
porksaucezagibu: sorry xps 1312:27
zagibuyeah, but it has intel hd graphics12:27

bekkspaultroke: Version of what?12:33
paultrokebekks: Ubuntu12:34
bekkspaultroke: "lsb_release -a"12:34
gamoholicInstalling LibreOffice should be as simple as "sudo apt-get install libreoffice"12:35
gamoholicWell, unless you want a newer version than what's in the repo12:35
paultrokebekks: OK. Version 12.04.4 LTS. It has installed Libre Office, but also offers it to install via the software centre. I don't understand why?12:35
bekkspaultroke: Because it is installable via software center, too?12:36
paultrokebekks: I understand that, but other sp12:36
paultrokebekks: other software installed at setup shows as installed in software centre?12:36
gamoholicMaybe 12.04 ships with a minimal install of LibreOffice?12:37
bekkspaultroke: And why i that a reason for concern? Two applications show the same spftware as being installed.12:37
gamoholicpaultroke: Which version is the software center offering? Also, which version do you have installed? "soffice --version"12:38
kostkonpaultroke, some parts you have got to install yourself and do not come as part of 12.04, e.g. libreoffice base12:39
paultrokebekks: Sorry, I'm not being clear. I got the message that JRE needed to be installed for LibreOffice to work fully. I went looking for it on software centre. I found JRE, but also saw LibreOffice listed as not installed. This confused me.12:39
paultrokekostkon: Thanks. How do I find out which elements are installed?12:41
bekkspaultroke: dpkg -l | grep libreoffice12:41
paultrokebekks: thanks.12:43
paultrokebekks, kostkon: Which JRE package would you suggest?12:44
bekkspaultroke: I suggest the Oracle Java JDK.12:44
kostkonpaultroke, openjdk7?12:44
paultrokebekks, kostkon: Thanks to both of you for your help - and patience with a newbie :-)12:45
gamoholicFor LibreOffice you should be fine with openJDK12:46
gamoholicIf you are going to do something more serious with Java like run a MineCraft server then I would definitely suggest the Oracle flavor of Java :)12:47
onltyI play MineCraft w/ openjdk12:48
paultrokegamoholic: Thanks very much.12:48
paultrokeI use irc so rarely, how do I leave a chat room politely?12:49
gamoholicopenjdk is probably fine, but I feel better with the official Java for running an MC server12:49

porksaucevee-trev: yeah i'd want to do some forensics before wiping too to see if i could figure out how it got that way, but please no online banking while it's like that :)13:48
spoutnik16but if the problem is the gpu, does it mean i can run a linux with no graphical interface ? with an old graphical interface ?13:49

JoshStroblnetameta__: Might be worth adding the nginx PPA to see if it is anymore up to date than main. Add deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/nginx/stable/ubuntu saucy main to your /etc/sources.list, do sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install --reinstall nginx && sudo apt-get install php5-curl php5-fpm14:10
JoshStroblAfter that, check whether php5-fpm or php-fpm (as well as nginx) is listed in /etc/init.d. If so, restart those services using sudo service php5-fpm (php-fpm) restart and sudo service nginx restart.14:11
JoshStroblCheck your nginx configuration files to make sure they are appropriately configured. A good reference / example is http://wiki.nginx.org/PHPFcgiExample#FastCGI_Example_.28with_PHP_FPM.2914:12

netameta__josh what you mean by add deb http://....14:13
JoshStrobl"deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/nginx/stable/ubuntu saucy main" - add that line (without the quotes) in your /etc/sources.list file. it will fetch nginx from a different source (this one being the stable branch of nginx, which may differ from the repo.14:15

cfhowlettbublik007, ask in #ubuntu+1   the "next release" channel should know all about that stuff15:48

bublik007Even if it's from 14.04 to 14.04?16:01
JoshStroblbublik007: If you are running something like 14.04 beta and want it to jump to stable, you shouldn't have to do anything since it is already pointing to the trusty repo. That said, I'd also recommend asking in the ubuntu+1 IRC.16:02

nikolamllutz, so it's a program problem, not linking it?16:50
Phil42it looks like /usr/bin/aooffice is complaing that /opt/openoffice4/program/aooffice.bin is not there16:51
nikolamYes I see that, Phil42 but since aooffice is just a symbolic link to /opt/openoffice4/program/soffice16:51
llutznikolam: it works, if you call "/opt/openoffice4/program/soffice" directly?16:53
nikolamyes, llutz16:53
nikolamI just made aooffice to be a script, that does 'cd /opt/openoffice4/program/ '  and then './soffice' . And it works16:54
nikolamEven /usr/bin/soffice (that comes from LibreOffice is actually a script16:54
nikolamOnly thing that wasn't done was installing AOO menu icons, because .deb provided by Apache does not work on Ubuntu. Must report that to them to fix that16:55
llutznikolam: yes, because those change $PWD into the /opt/openoffice.... where other needed files are found. your simple symlink doesn't, so it fails16:55
=== Guest57471 is now known as krabador
=== Stew_ is now known as Guest25599

jak2000llutz, i want send an receive emails a friend recommend me null mailer, its ok?18:08
daftykinsGuest23858: either buy a web domain and point it to your home IP and port forward, or edit your hosts file to fake a website at your LAN IP (192.168.x.x) instead18:09
FeDeericofor post production18:09
daftykinsdaemonicus: that's weird, no ideas unfortunately18:09
llutzjak2000: nullmailer cannot handle inbound mail afaik18:09
jak2000llutz wich recommend me? easy to install? dovecot? postfix? sendmail?18:10
llutzjak2000: postfix18:10
llutzjak2000: well documented, support in #postfix18:10
Guest23858daftykins: how would i edit my host file ? what ip should i point to ?18:10
jak2000i know that in google exist some tutorials, but... you know a good? tutorial?18:11
jak2000for install postfix, need have bind installed on my server?18:11
llutzjak2000:like https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/postfix.html18:11
Guest23858daftykins: i use a netgear router18:11
daftykinsGuest23858: your system's LAN IP would work, you edit /etc/hosts and add an entry at the bottom18:11
daftykinsGuest23858: although what's really so hard about visiting http://localhost/ ? :)18:12
jak2000llutz what about bind?18:12
llutzjak2000: not really needed18:12
Guest23858daftykins: thats what i told i use openstack , so i get openstack dashboard when i type loopback address18:13
jak2000llutz thanks, friend, i continue working on my site...18:13
Guest23858daftykins: and i am testing another website . so i asked18:14
daftykinsGuest23858: oooooh so you want to run that and apache at the same time...18:15
daftykinsGuest23858: ok you want to reconfigure openstack to run on a different port than 80 then. try changing it to 808018:15
Guest23858daftykins: ya u got it18:15
mjaykhaya I need help setting the MTU on my wireless card cana anyone help ?18:15

usr13jak2000: netstat -pantu19:35
jak2000llutz this command: sudo ufw allow 2121/tcp     is permanently? what happend if restart the server?19:35
flashramActionParsnip: good that u say that ... my system is dubious ... 804 ... no gnome only background and option to create dir19:35
flashramhelp extraction of malware19:36
llutzjak2000: doesn't ufw store rules and reload on boot?19:36
ActionParsnipflashram: if you have a floppy drive, there are floppy images on pendrivelinux to make usb boot if the bios doesnt support it19:36
flashramgrub can do it without bios19:36
ActionParsnipflashram: dubious as in, anyone could put any keyloggers or backdoors on the file19:36
ActionParsnipflashram: yes grub can boot usb, that is what the floppy is for :-)19:37
flashramindeed since im not here during the week19:37
jak2000llutz reading...  but the command: netstat -pantu not show me the port 2121 (strange)19:37
flashrami have a windows virus on disk without quarantine19:37
flashramon my linux partition that is19:38
flashramthe virus just restored the files u just deleted in windows19:38
llutzjak2000: you started vsftpd, listening on 2121? sudo lsof -i :212119:38
flashrami formated the usb in linux19:38
flashrambut its still on there as it still acts funny19:38
ActionParsnipflashram: i dont see how a windows virus is anything to do with installing an OS.19:39
ActionParsnipflashram: windows viruses dont affect ubuntu.19:39
jak2000ahh ok, need restarted the vsftpd daemon thanks19:39
flashrami have wine and mono19:39
ActionParsnipflashram: then it may affect wine but again, nothing to do with installing an OS, is it?19:40
flashramActionParsnip: just saying ther must be a reasen my gnome is gone and background only and right mouse only things working19:40
flashramno nothin to do ? happy ? thanks19:40
ActionParsnipflashram: the community will not and cannot support old releases.19:40
flashrami saying is ther a way to install lts into any kind of linu!x as a sprite tar injection ?19:41
ActionParsnipflashram: id imagine a few will.19:41
flashramhow ?19:41
=== LDX|Laptop is now known as LDX
Minty_Hi guys. I'm finally making the switch to linux - my day job is windows applications heavy but more of my time is spent building applications and doing web development and i can't take it any longer! I'm looking for improved workflow and so here I am. I have a couple of queries ahead as I've not used linux before. 1) do drivers auto install (assuming linux has a more generic set that work for a range of hardware and peripheries)?19:41
ActionParsnipflashram: or just boot a Lubuntu install CD and install Lubuntu after removing the current install. Job done19:42
flashramwhat about keeping home and just install the base ?19:42
Minty_2) is Wine the best thing of it's kind?19:42
ActionParsnipMinty_: if the drivers are in a default install then yes, same as in Windows.19:42
flashrami prefer cedega19:42
ActionParsnipMinty_: there is no single best solution for any one situation19:43
jak2000llutz by moment all is ok, thanks19:43
flashramor the wine-office19:43
=== makije is now known as makije|away
Minty_ActionParsnip: ok, well my criteria for best is "widest supporting"19:43
usr13Minty_: Some do, not all.  Or I should say, most do.19:43
LDXJust want to say, Ubuntu is by far the best OS I have ever used. 8D19:43
ActionParsnipflashram: if you want, yes. Id delete the hidden configs so that new ones are generated for the newer versions of programs19:44
usr13Minty_: Wine is good.  WOrks for most apps, just depends though.19:44
Minty_Ok cool19:44
ActionParsnipMinty_: it varys. Each solution like wine has an appdb of compatibiloty19:44
=== RickyB98 is now known as rickyb98
Minty_Thirdly, I'm thinking of giving my pc a total refresh either by installing a new hard disk or by using data destruction software to tally wipe this one. Am I able to burn ubuntu onto a dvd and install from a barebones system with relative ease?19:44
usr13Minty_: YOu might also be interested in VM19:45
usr13!vbox | Minty_19:45
ubottuMinty_: Virtualbox 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/VirtualBox19:45
Minty_usr13: performance sucks via VM, i'll only run that if I have to19:45
ActionParsnipMinty_: just because one has more apps doesnt make it better. Wine may not cover the apps you want but cedega (for example) does. Is wine therefore better?19:45
flashramso thers no restore or staging install into an existing system then ?19:45
usr13Minty_: Yea, it depends on how much horsepower you have.19:45
ActionParsnipMinty_: in your case, no as wine will not run what you want but cedega does. You seem to not understand how wine works19:46
ActionParsnipMinty_: it is nothing to do with how many apps run, its the apps YOU want to run and if the solution works for YOU19:46
Minty_ActionParsnip: you're coming from a very objective way of answering a subject's question. I provided criteria so that you could have a standard as a way of assessing your objectified view of my question. My criteria was "widest support" which should be objectively read as largest # of support, nothing to do with my list of apps.19:46
frank1eActionParsnip: Thanks19:47
ActionParsnipMinty_: what if one solution supports every app except the one you want to run?19:47
ScyllaBusJust installed AMD graphics driver via Ubuntu 13.10, but now my computers are slower. I also cannot use dual monitors correctly. I looked online and was told  I needed to use amdcccle, but when I launch catalyst control center, I get "System Problem Detected".19:47
ScyllaBusHere is the fglrx-install.log: http://pastie.org/882421219:47
Minty_ActionParsnip: then when my provision of criteria is "widest support", that premise would be irrelevant19:47
ActionParsnipMinty_: i think you need to look at the application databases, then make a call. Look to see how well each runs the application you want to use19:48
usr13Minty_: An auto mechanic picks and chooses the tool he heeds for the specific task, (so do we).19:48
ActionParsnipMinty_: again, there is no best.19:48
Minty_ActionParsnip: sure but that was never my question. Thanks all the same.19:48
Minty_I'm thinking of giving my pc a total refresh either by installing a new hard disk or by using data destruction software to tally wipe this one. Am I able to burn ubuntu onto a dvd and install from a barebones system with relative ease?19:48
usr13Minty_: Yes19:49
ActionParsnipMinty_: absolutely. Are you throwing the old drive away?19:49
Minty_If you need an objective criteria in order to understand "relative", you can imagine explaining it to an average grandma (would that need standardising too?)19:49
Minty_ActionParsnip: not sure, why?19:49
gordonjcpMinty_: if you want to wipe the drive, a single pass of /dev/zero will do it19:49
gordonjcpMinty_: once the data is overwritten with anything even once, it's gone for good19:50
ActionParsnipMinty_: if so, drive platters are very brittle and hammers are very hard19:50
Minty_gordonjcp: that's not true19:50
gordonjcpMinty_: yes, it is19:50
Minty_gordonjcp: military standard for disposal is 6 writes of 1s on every bit and then 0s.19:50
gordonjcpMinty_: waste of time19:50
gordonjcpMinty_: that might have made sense 30 years ago, but not on any drive you're ever likely to encounter19:51
ActionParsnipMinty_: once is ok now. You information is outbof date.19:51
Minty_gordonjcp: ok, odd that military still use that same process - at least in the UK19:51
Minty_fair enough, i've learnt something today - thanks!19:51
gordonjcpMinty_: yeah, stupidity mostly19:51
gordonjcpMinty_: squaddies are cheap19:51
Minty_out of interest, how easy / long would it take to do that in windows on a 1tb hdd19:51
gordonjcpMinty_: no idea if it's even possible on a 1TB hard disk.  1TB is a useful size, though.  Why dispose of it?19:52
ActionParsnipMinty_: http://www.howtogeek.com/115573/htg-explains-why-you-only-have-to-wipe-a-disk-once-to-erase-it/19:52
Minty_gordonjcp: i would want to reformat after19:52
gordonjcpMinty_: sorry, incoherent.  Don't know if that's possible on *Windows*, obviously it's possible on a 1TB drive19:52
gordonjcpMinty_: I wouldn't bother zeroing it out then19:52
metamorpyseem to remember it took about 6 hours wiping a 1tb drive using dban on single run.19:52
Minty_metamorpy: thanks19:53
gordonjcpMinty_: do you actually *care* what's on the drive?19:53
Minty_gordonjcp: i want ubuntu to run on a fresh drive, i don't want to make the move but still have clutter on the disk and a free space that reads far less than 1tb19:53
ActionParsnipDoesnt a long format in windows zero it out?19:53
gordonjcpMinty_: if you're nuking everything on the drive, just create a fresh partition table19:54
metamorpyalso remember that wiping a disk wears it Minty_, so more likely to fail sooner then later.19:54
gordonjcpMinty_: zero out the first block, and I bet you can't tell the difference :-D19:54
Minty_metamorpy: guess so19:54
Minty_maybe i should just buy a SSD19:54
Minty_currently on a mechanical drive19:54
usr13Minty_: It would take a while but you can speed it up a bit if you specify 1M, or more. dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdx bs=1M19:54
ActionParsnipDo it overnight while you sleep :-)19:55
Minty_ok, if i compromised and didn't do a full wipe, what would be the best process to give me the 'freshest' ubuntu install?19:55
usr13Minty_: You can also use  dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sdx bs=1M19:55
Minty_usr13: sorry, i have no idea what that is19:55
ActionParsnipMinty_: install from CD from a non partitioned drive19:55
usr13Minty_: But if you're going to  use it yourself, why bother?19:55
gordonjcpMinty_: just follow the prompts, it'll say something like "erase everything and install Ubuntu"19:56
gordonjcpMinty_: man, stop overthinking this ;-)19:56
usr13Minty_: The installer will delete the partitions for you.19:56
Minty_gordonjcp: ok, so just use the ubuntu windows isntaller?19:56
usr13Minty_: Boot to the CD or USB, yes19:56
Minty_was just slightly wary because windows installers suck, they don't delete any partitions and they just move the old system into windows.old leaving you with 100% of the clutter19:57
usr13Minty_: ... and tell it to wipe clean which ever drive you want to use for the install.19:57
gordonjcpMinty_: make a USB installer19:57
Minty_how do i "make" that gordonjcp ?19:57
gordonjcpMinty_: don't use WUBI, it's dead now anyway19:57
gordonjcpMinty_: dd if=path/to/iso of=path/to/USB/stick bs=1M19:58
CarlFKhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/7023783/  .config/autostart/dvsmod.desktop  doesn't work.  If i switch to gedit it works.   if I copy it to ~/Desktop and click the icon, it works. why can't I get stream_test.sh to autorun?19:58
Minty_gordonjcp: no idea what that means sorry19:58
=== pcdummy is now known as Fast[BDC]
flashramActionParsnip: what about a binary shellscript plus ubuntu cd image to make an update forced install ?19:58

flashrameven on non supported system (non ubuntu)19:59
flashramits possible19:59
gordonjcpMinty_: what you need might be slightly different, depending on what you're running just now and where your USB drive appears19:59
gordonjcpthis will clobber anything on the USB drive20:00
usr13Minty_: There are instructions as to how to set up the install media for specific needs, see:  ubuntu.com20:00
ubottuUbuntu can be installed in lots of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall - See also !automate20:00
BeldarMinty_, For the record windows installers have a manual install option that allows you to delete and build partitions.20:00
usr13Beldar: I thought so...20:01
usr13Beldar: I don't know about Win8, haven't been there yet.20:01
Minty_hang on, i'm getting contradictory information. It looks like the ubuntu installer for windows can replace windows - are people saying this isn't properly supported and i should create a bootable usb stick instead or not?20:02
Beldarusr13, I have it on a student purchase, really, really cheap, hehe. ;)20:02
usr13Minty_: Forget "installer for windows"  Just do a regular Ubuntu install.20:02
usr13Beldar: IC20:02
jhutchinsMinty_: Yes, there has been an installer for WIndows (wubi).  No, it's not in good shape right now and if you can you should go with USB or disc install.20:03
usr13Minty_: Are you going to do a 64bit or 32bit install?20:03
Minty_jhutchins: ok thanks20:03
Minty_usr13: looks like i'll be creating a bootable usb stick with 64bit install20:03
Minty_usr13: guess this is what I want? http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows20:04
jhutchinsMinty_: We generally recommend the netinstall image, that way you only download what you actually use.20:04
usr13Minty_: Next choice is LTS or 13.10?  (I would choose LTS.)20:04
usr13!LTS | Minty_20:05
ubottuMinty_: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; with the exception of 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), which will be supported for 5 years on the desktop. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Precise (Precise Pangolin 12.04)20:05
michagogo|cloudThe next LTS will be 14.0420:05
Minty_usr13: LTS yea20:05
michagogo|cloudIn just under 2 months20:05

Minty_jhutchins: what do you mean by netinstall image? compared with what?20:06
Beldar_gypsy_, Read the channel topic.20:06
michagogo|cloud_gypsy_: I feel certain the answer is yes20:06
usr13Minty_: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows20:07
Beldar_gypsy_, There is #ubuntu-offtopic if you like20:07
jhutchinsMinty_: Should be labeled as such.20:07
Minty_usr13: yea i was looking at that20:07
gordonjcpof course, you shouldn't be using 13.10 like I am20:08
_gypsy_michagogo|cloud thanks and Beldar i was just wonderin if ubuntu had any bitcoin apps available20:08
gordonjcpnot until it's out of alpha test20:08
michagogo|cloud!info electrum20:08
ubottuelectrum (source: electrum): Easy to use bitcoin client. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.8-1 (saucy), package size 116 kB, installed size 491 kB20:08
Beldar_gypsy_, Oh apps I believe so, not sure which myself.20:08
gordonjcpit's not really ready for release yet, it's full of crippling bugs20:08
michagogo|cloud_gypsy_: It would appear the Electrum client is in saucy20:08
Minty_usr13: does it need to be the only thing on my usb?20:08
OneKoreaI have one ELF binary I'm trying to migrate, I need to find out on which ubuntu distro has been compiled, can someone take a look at it with ldd or something? I uploaded it here: http://rghost.net/5278024220:08
michagogo|cloud!info multibit20:08
ubottuPackage multibit does not exist in saucy20:08
usr13Minty_: It's pretty easy.  Once you get your USB stick prepaired and boot it up, you'll see.  Come back here and ask questions as you install, (if there are any), it's pretty straight forward.20:08
_gypsy_and i heard about this gsr sec kernel or something that locks down ubuntu even more for security purposes?20:08
michagogo|cloud_gypsy_: If you want a bitcoin wallet on Ubuntu, you can install electrum20:09
Minty_usr13: thanks, i appreciate that, cheers. My PC is not exactly recent so I may find i need to interrupt boot to ensure it will auto try and boot from usb20:09
usr13Minty_: Yes, you'll wipe the USB20:09
_gypsy_what?! super chill im going to look it up right now thanks!20:09
bekksOneKorea: Pastebin "ldd yourbinary" please.20:09
bekksOneKorea: And tell us, what we have to look for.20:10

jhutchinsOneKorea: That info should be in the .deb package.20:11
OneKoreabekks why impossible20:11
bekksOneKorea: All you can get to know which lib versions it was compiled against.20:11
_gypsy_didnt know there was another20:11
ActionParsnipflashram: not all apps in Linux are free or opensource20:11
OneKoreathere is no .deb package, I got only  binary20:11
flashramc4droid that is20:11
_gypsy_im stoked lol im gonna tell my friend right now20:11
bekksOneKorea: Which doesnt change what I just said.20:11
flashramit uses gcc so it should be free20:11
jak2000how to disable firewall?20:11
_gypsy_michagogo|cloud did you go to SCALE?20:12
bekksOneKorea: Having the lib versions, you have to look up which release fits best.20:12
OneKoreashouldn't you somehow see which version of libs has been linked against?20:12
bekksflashram: thats a wrong assumption.20:12
ActionParsnipflashram: doesnt have to be free because its based on gcc20:12
jhutchinsOneKorea: I'm used to aptitude show <paclage>20:12
michagogo|cloud_gypsy_: hmm?20:12
bekksOneKorea: Thats what I just said.20:12
flashrambytheway i have never fiugured out how to buy an app on android20:12
_gypsy_linux convention20:12
flashramokey when its a phone and u got value but what if u dont use sim and use wifi20:12
ActionParsnipflashram: you can charge people for Ubuntu if you want. Its open source. You are free to do with it what you want, including sell ot20:12
Minty_usr13: how easy would it be to setup ubuntu on a separate partition and then delete the windows partition after?20:12
michagogo|cloud_gypsy_: No.20:13
flashramu can but its still free in the first place20:13
bekksflashram: wrong.20:13
michagogo|cloud_gypsy_: Also, the version of Electrum in Ubuntu's repo is not the latest, it seems20:13
usr13Minty_: I prefer xubuntu, (it is a more conventional type desktop environment), but that is just me.  See:  http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/take-the-tour  (for ubuntu)  vs http://xubuntu.org/ (for xubuntu)20:13
_gypsy_michagogo|cloud its the southern california linux convention and brought it up because they should have mentioned this in the ubuntu lecture20:13
michagogo|cloud_gypsy_: If you want the latest version, see https://electrum.org/download.html20:13
flashrambekks: whats wrong ?20:13
jhutchinsMinty_: Most linux installers will set a system up to dual-boot either Windows or Linux, so yeah, easy to do that.20:13
usr13Minty_: Not hard, "to setup ubuntu on a separate partition and then delete the windows partition after"20:13
bekksflashram: the only information you get by knowing it was compiled with gcc, is the fact that it was ompiled with gcc, on a platform that gcc supports.20:14
ActionParsnipflashram: yes but the guy who has put it on the marketplace wants to charge for it, which s/he is free to do20:14
flashrami figured i can install cd to a boot partition and boot install from there20:14
Minty_jhutchins: ok, i guess what I meant was when i boot from USB, the installer can wipe windows for me - will I be able to do that as effectively once it's installed on a separate partition?20:14
bekksflashram: I'm sorry, I mixed up your comments onto two issues.20:14
ActionParsnipflashram: so 'its based on gcc' doesnt mean t should be free in any way20:14
jhutchinsMinty_: Yes, you'll have a bit more complication if you want the Linux partition to take over the windows space, but it can be done.20:15
flashramin no way ?20:15
bekksflashram: In absolutely no way.20:15
usr13Minty_: But you would have to make a couple changes to Ubuntu's configurations. What would be easier is to just shrink the other partitions to only a meg or so each, (then you won't have to make any config changes).20:15
ActionParsnipflashram: again, you can charge for free software if you so desire20:15
Minty_usr13: guess so, just quite like the idea of it being fresh!20:15
flashramthen whats keeping me from building my payment ubuntu ?20:15
bekksflashram: Nothing.20:15
flashramexpertise !20:15
ActionParsnipflashram: ability and your own resources like time and effort20:15
Minty_usr13: ubuntu feels a little nicer looking that xubuntu (i don't use desktop icons in windows as it is!)20:16
flashramand the fact i know just nothing or nops20:16
ActionParsnipMinty_: have a look at Lubuntu too :-)20:16
usr13Minty_: You can eaily shrink the Windows partitions down and leave enough free space for the Ubuntu install and deal with them later.20:16
ActionParsnipMinty_: or Kubunti20:16
Minty_usr13: yea guess so20:16
Minty_usr13: ok will try that first20:16
Minty_ActionParsnip: i looked at a brief comparison of ubuntu and all these others. Feel like ubuntu is the prettiest and the most social-friendly20:17
usr13Minty_: Yea, the Desktop Environment is a matter of opinion, or user preference.20:17
jhutchinsMinty_: Do you have an xubuntu installation already?20:17
Minty_jhutchins: no20:17
usr13Minty_: There is also lubuntu and kubuntu20:17
ActionParsnipMinty_: cool, glad you looked around a little :-)20:17
majodyou can take a look at "elementary OS" too, but its built on 12.04...20:18
ActionParsnip<3 lubuntu20:18
jhutchinsMinty_: You can install as many desktop environments as you want on any of the flavors, it's just a matter of which DE is installed first by default.20:18
ActionParsnipmajod: the elementary community isnt that large though20:18
Minty_I guess i want to minimise the transition, i'm used to windows 7 which despite all it's faults is quite pretty and seamless (at least from a UX perspective)20:18
usr13Minty_: There are a number of other Desktop Environments as well, and you can install one and switch to another later on if you want.20:18
Minty_i'm looking forward to getting down and dirty and much more comfortable with termional20:18

ubuntuaddictedtrying to write a file to a smb mount and I get an error about not being able to set permissions. can anyone help me?20:19
bekksubuntuaddicted: smb/cifs does not support linux/unix permissions.20:19
jhutchinsubuntuaddicted: Just ignore it.  THe permission structure is different on an smb share.20:19
Minty_usr13: i get the impression that on linux, my pc performance and my personal workflow can be greater with more seamless transition between applications and tasks20:19
usr13ubuntuaddicted: You have to set the permissions on the mount point.20:20
jhutchinsbekks: Actually, it does support them if you use the extension, but easier to ignore.20:20
usr13Minty_: Correct20:20
ubuntuaddictedbekks, jhutchins usr13 i never used to receive this error though that's whats weird.20:20
Minty_usr13: but when you said steep learning curve, did you just mean the transition to linux fullstop?20:21
ubuntuaddicteddid something change with cifs?20:21

Minty_usr13: ok, well i reckon i'm ready! formatting usb stick now20:22
usr13Minty_: Very good.20:23
Minty_usr13: oh quick thing, when i get ubuntu up and running, what's an easy irc client to use?20:25
Minty_i've heard irssi is nice20:25
gordonjcpMinty_: irssi is a command-line client, which is pretty simple and reliable20:25
gordonjcpMinty_: it's particularly handy if you run it on a server in tmux or screen20:26
DJonesMinty_: Irssi is nice, but has a fair bit of a learning curve, if you want something with a typical gui interface, there is xchat which is quite nice20:26
Minty_gordonjcp: i'm just going to be on desktop ubuntu, still a good choice?20:26
usr13ubuntuaddicted: So what error do you get?20:27
gordonjcpMinty_: I'd say so20:27
usr13Minty_: Oh yea, I use irssi20:27

Minty_DJones: ok thanks, i might download the 2 and see how I get on!20:27
gordonjcpMinty_: I have it on my server so I can disconnect from this machine here20:27
Minty_gordonjcp: usr13 thanks20:27
gordonjcpMinty_: and then reconnect from this other machine here20:27
Minty_gordonjcp: think irssi has built in bouncer anyway?20:28
gordonjcpMinty_: not sure20:28
ubuntuaddictedi'd also like to just have it auto mount, i used to just use fstab but i was getting issues with it actually halting boot up because it couldn't be mounted. so i changed it to user, which i believe means i have to manually mount it after the machine boots up20:28
Minty_ubuntu iso taking 12 hours to install :O20:29
Minty_something wrong with download server atm?20:29
gordonjcpyou might have a crappy mirror20:29
gordonjcpget a torrent20:29
bekksan iso inst installed. Just use another mirror to download.20:29
usr13ubuntuaddicted: What is that supposed to be?  (The URL you just sent.)20:30
Minty_yea sounds like a badddd mirror20:30
ubuntuaddictedusr13, that's the error i get. it's a picture20:30
Minty_the iso's don't seem to be easy to find from the ubuntu site, am i being blind?20:30
bekksMinty_: cdimages.ubuntu.com20:30
usr13ubuntuaddicted: Oh, down at the bottom?  (Where it says "Error getting permissions" "no such file or directory" "Do you want to skip it?")  ???20:31
ubuntuaddictedusr13, yes20:31
ubuntuaddictedsomething with smbfs or cifs must have changed.20:32
ubuntuaddictedcause it started happening after I switched from 12.04 to 13.1020:32
Minty_i'm on 64 bit intel, is this what I want usr13 http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/releases/precise/release/ubuntu-12.04.4-dvd-i386.iso ?20:32
bekksMinty_: No.20:32

jhutchinsMinty_: Again, netinstall iso.  The DVD is going to take a long time to download.20:33
bekksMinty_: Because you have 64bit hardware.20:33
usr13ubuntuaddicted: Yea, smbfs has been replaced by cifs20:33
Minty_jhutchins: i'm not sure what that means20:33
ubuntuaddictedusr13, pretty sure i had cifs in 12.0420:33
llutzMinty_: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86-6420:33
Minty_jhutchins: i'm just going to format usb stick so i can boot from it with the correct ISO on it20:33
usr13ubuntuaddicted: Yea, it was changed some time ago.20:34
usr13ubuntuaddicted: mount | pastebinit   #Show is the URL20:34
ubuntuaddictedusr13, so that can't be it. something else must have changed because i never used to receive the error before. it's annoying. its still writing the file at least20:34

llutz!mini  | Minty_20:36
ubottuMinty_: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want.  The installer is text based (rather than graphical as used on the Desktop DVD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD20:36
bekksMinty_: He told you to not download the dvd, but the amd64 netinstall iso.20:36

Minty_bekks: all the other 64bit files have mac in their name20:38
ubuntuaddictedusr13, sorry, those results are from the wrong client20:38

ubuntuaddictedusr13, no idea, it's a NAS by western digital20:43
ubuntuaddictedusr13, the first results i gave you were from the wrong machine, that's when i  was ssh'd into my server. just forget about that20:44
Minty_jhutchins: thanks20:44
nszcetaI would like to build a server cluster that serves 100 PCs with Windows 7 x64 instances served over the network to rdesktop terminals. I would appreciate any suggestions or insights on this matter. I have 10 years of experience with Linux but not so much experience with cloud deployments.20:45
usr13ubuntuaddicted: You do not know what operating system is running on the server?20:46
usr13ubuntuaddicted: Is the server running Linux?  Or, is the server running MS Windows? Or is it something else?  (Do you know?)20:46
ubuntuaddictedusr13, i've said 3 times. it's a western digital  my book world edition NAS20:47
Minty_jhutchins: i downloaded mini.iso but for some reason the file doesn't show up in the file explorer under ISO files (using the uiniversal usb installer)20:47
Minty_when i downloaded it windows disc burner loaded, do i need to burn it?20:48
usr13Does anyone understand what ubuntuaddicted is trying to say?  (Sorry, but I'm lost here.)20:48
Minty_that would be stupid of me...20:48
ubuntuaddictedusr13, do you know what a NAS is?20:49
nszcetaI didn't know Western Digital made NAS20:49
llutzusr13: his NAS has an embedded OS, most likely a special linux on it20:49
usr13llutz: It's linux ?20:49
ubuntuaddictednothing has changed on the NAS20:49
ubuntuaddictedsomething changed from xubuntu 12.04 to xubuntu 13.10 as far as cifs mounts20:50
Minty_jhutchins: usr13 any ideas why i can't browse the ISO? http://screencast.com/t/bQK8MJEs20:50
usr13llutz: So why is it a samba share?  Why wouldn't it be using nfs?20:50
llutzusr13: you'd better ask WesternDigital20:50
helloHello guys. I'm new to ubuntu and today I decided to install it, using USB drive. First I checked if it works fine as LiveCD and it was good. I liked it. So I decided to erase my windows and install ubuntu. At some point installation crashed and now I don't have any OS... I still want to use Ubuntu, but I have no idea what to do. Any help?20:51

gordonjcphello: start installing again20:52
Minty_Guys, would really appreciate some help here, just wanting to get this iso onto the usb so i can boot from usb20:52
gordonjcpMinty_: well, what OS are you running just now?20:53
usr13ubuntuaddicted: Without more information, I can not tell what the problem is.  Should work but I don't know how to fix it, (because I don't know what is wrong, not enough infomation).20:53
ubuntuaddictedusr13, ok, thanks anyway20:53

llutzMinty_: doesn't the usb-isntaller have an option like "not listed distribution iso" instead of ubuntu?20:55
Minty_bekks: that what i am doing20:55
usr13hello: Did you go through the install process?20:55
llutzMinty_: also look "local iso selected"20:55
Minty_bekks: look at http://screencast.com/t/bQK8MJEs20:55
hello<usr13>  yes, but it crashes as some file is corrupted20:55
usr13Minty_: "Select your ubuntu *desktop*.iso"20:56
usr13Minty_: Did you click [Browse] ?20:57
Minty_usr13: mine is called mini.iso because i was advised to download the netinstall20:57
usr13Minty_: If you have a fast internet connection, the netinstall is fine.20:57
Minty_usr13: renamed it to desktop.iso and no change. don't see how the universal usb installer could stop certain named files appearing from a windows explorer window anyway - the only filter is .iso files which this is20:57
usr13Minty_: And looks like it's in Downloads/20:57
Minty_usr13: yes i clicked browse and nothing comes up20:58
Minty_usr13: yea that's where i'm looking20:58
Minty_usr13: did you see the screenshot showing the file when i look in windows explorer but then not appearing in the browse option of this universal driver. This is madness :|20:59
usr13Minty_: Well, we can't see the rest of the window. But if that is it where it says "No items match your search", well, I dono what you searched for... so...20:59
Minty_usr, that is the window opened by the browse button... the screenshot shows it is there but it can't find it20:59
llutzMinty_: scroll down the step1: list  to the end "not listed iso"20:59
usr13Minty_: I dono.  Close it all down and try again.21:00

ubuntuaddictedusr13, i believe it's vfat but i don't know. as I said, i never used to get this error with thunar in xubuntu 12.0421:19
Minty_Hi, i'm at the early parts of the boot from usb install. Configuring the DCHP network failed. How can I troubleshoot this?21:19
demianbWifi or cable?21:20
Minty_I'm not sure which information is necessary so a brief overview; this is a home desktop pc that is connected via ethernet to a router which is connected to another router.21:20
=== marco is now known as Guest88478
Minty_The router my pc is connected to has a reserved ip and so does the computer itself21:20
demianbIf you have two routers, problem could be that you have both acting as DHCP server (which is not allowed in a single LAN)21:20
usr13ubuntuaddicted: And you are on what now?  12.10?21:21
Minty_demianb: how can i tell the router connected to my pc not to act as a dchp server?21:21
demianblog onto it by its IP web interface and go through settings, it should have the option to disable DHCP21:21
Minty_demianb: ok thanks21:21
ubuntuaddictedusr13, here's the permissions of the NAS. http://imagebin.org/29673721:22
usr13ubuntuaddicted: Is it fully updated? (I'm thinking its a bug in the newer version of thunar, maybe?)21:22
Minty_demianb: i wonder if that might explain why my wifi keeps dropping out but ethernet is fine21:22
demianbMinty_, Could be. So just make sure one of the two has DHCP. Doesnt really matter which one, in most cases.21:23
ubuntuaddictedusr13, must be and yes, i'm running the latest thunar. well, whatever thunar is in xubuntu 13.1021:23
AckisI think I messed up quite a bit, I read somewhere that for NFS you want to try and make your uid/gid's match, so I went through and manually edited me /etc/passwd file and now "shit is broken".. my headless server is hanging for no apparent reason (I can't even ssh into it), and I'm not seeing anything obvious in the error log file21:23
Minty_demianb: ok great thanks, will leave the "main" router as dchp and turn dchp on mine off21:23
demianbThe one closest to your ISP connection I suppose.21:23
Minty_demianb: the only reason i had my router dchp on is so that i could set reserved ip for my pc because there are port forwarding rules that are set in both routers for my specific pc ip21:23
Minty_router 1 (nearest to isp) currently has reserved ip for my router and then my router has reserved ip setup for my pc with port forwarding rules for my pc on router 1. Am i doing something wrong there?21:24
usr13ubuntuaddicted: So you re-installed with 13.10, (and before that you have 12.04). Right>?21:24
demianbMinty_, Because each device has their own IP, you should be able to reserve IPs on the 1st router. The 2nd router (with dhcp disabled) should only act as a switch.21:25
Minty_demianb: ok great, will do that now, thanks21:25
demianbgood luck.21:25
usr13ubuntuaddicted: So this is a fresh install of 13.10?  Is it fully updated?21:25
ubuntuaddictedusr13, i did a fresh install of 13.10 and started getting the problem. i was previously using 12.04.421:25
ubuntuaddictedusr13, yes and yes21:25
raj_I wasn't getting any logs written to log files under /var/log on my fresh 12.04 install & figured out that rsyslog was not installed .. after install.. logs are getting written.. does this mean that I need to manually install rsyslog inorder to get the logs written ??21:25
sit0Ubuntu - An african word meaning can't install Debian21:26
ubuntuaddictedusr13, i have a thread started here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=220720321:26
usr13ubuntuaddicted: Well, you might try pacman21:27
raj_do I need to manually install rsyslog to get the logs written on 12.04 server ?21:27
usr13ubuntuaddicted: Did you ask the folks on #xfce ?21:27
Minty_demianb: dam :( network configuration still failed. would i have needed to reboot pc too?21:28
usr13ubuntuaddicted: Or konqueror21:28
demianbMinty_, Always worth a shot to reboot. I would even try and give the routers a reboot, after saving the new settings... just to make sure they all read eachother properly.21:29
usr13ubuntuaddicted: See if you can get along with pacman or knoqueror until someone figures out what the deal is with thunar.21:29
Minty_demianb: well i made no changes to router 1 but rebooted router 2 and the pc. fingers crossed21:29
Minty_demianb: thanks for the help so far!21:30
usr13ubuntuaddicted: I know what;  Run thunar from a terminal and maybe you'll get some errors in the terminal window that will tell you something more about what the problem is.21:30
demianbShould be okay. The PC asks for IP and the dhcp server gives a response. The now inactive router will not give such a response (previously you had a collision of dhcp servers).21:30
ubuntuaddictedusr13, that's a good idea.21:30
Minty_demianb: sucks :( still failed21:31
ubuntuaddictedusr13, nevermind, it doesn't remain running, it just opens thunar and starts a fresh line21:31
=== ws2k3 is now known as ws2k3__
demianbMinty_, is the PC configured to receive IP by dhcp or is it manually set ?21:31
Minty_demianb: hmm, not sure. damn i think i set it manually actually. do i need to boot back into windows and change that to auto-get?21:32
usr13ubuntuaddicted: Yea, well, I guess you'd have run strace and write to a file but that may not tell you anything either21:32
gamoholicWindows has nothing do with your settings in Ubuntu :)21:32
demianbMinty_, no. If you're talking about Ubuntu installer, it should be set to dhcp.21:33
Minty_demianb: i'm running the install from bootable usb21:33
usr13ubuntuaddicted: You could try though.  strace -o thunar.log thuna21:33
ubuntuaddictedusr13, it's just annoying but doesn't prevent me from writing to the share21:33
demianbPossibly your router has the PCs MAC address reserved.21:33
demianbCan you check for that?21:33
usr13ubuntuaddicted: I left off the r21:33
Minty_demianb: yea, i'll check. it was previously reserved from router 2 but i removed that rule and then disabled dchp on that router.21:34
llutzdemianb: even the MAC won't change when booting the installer-cd21:34
demianbMinty_, Find out your PCs LAN card MAC address, then search for it in your router settings to see if it has an entry somewhere.21:34
ubuntuaddictedusr13, ok. gotta run for now. thanks for trying to help21:34
demianbllutz, Aye. MAC doesnt change by itself.21:34
Minty_demianb: the only reserved rule in router 1 is my router221:34
usr13Minty_: What's the problem?21:35
Minty_demianb: my pc is connected to router2 (in windows, i had it set as fixed ip). I'm now trying to install from bootable usb drive but all this network configuration etc. is before choosing a partition so could my windows fixed-ip setting be affecting this?21:35
usr13Minty_: Not getting a network connection during the install?21:35
Minty_usr13: network autoconfiguration failing21:35
demianbusr13, His PC isnt getting a network connection during Ubuntu install from CD.21:35
demianbMinty_, Only thing that could be 'stuck' is the router holding onto the propogated IP (that was set by Windows).21:36
usr13Minty_: Ctrl-ALt-F6   #Login or just hit enter, and set up the network with ifconfig21:36
Minty_just to eliminate the chance, i'm just booting into windows now (my only partition) and i will remove the fixed ip21:36
Pinglessevening all21:36
Minty_demianb: usr13 do i need to create a new partition in windows or will the installer have that capability?21:36
demianbInstaller does that pretty well.21:37

Minty_so i disabled dchp from router 2 and problem still persisting but i'm jusdt rebooting everything to be sure21:39
demianbYeah, and keep in mind Im only trying to help from a network perspective as I dont have enough knowledge of Linux.21:39
usr13Minty_: Oh yea, you can only have one dhcp sever running on a network.21:40
Minty_usr13: demianb ah hang on. now that router 1 is the dchp server, does my pc need to have the ipv4 default gateway pointed at router 1, not 2?21:40
usr13Minty_: But if you trun off the dhcp server on the gateway router, you'd have to plug it into a LAN port of the other one.21:41
Pinglesshas anyone managed to get an ATI HD4xxx running on 12.04? I've been struggling all day, it looks like Ubuntu isn't even seeing the card21:41
demianbMinty_, Aye. Point it to the active dhcp.21:41
Minty_hold up guys, which 1 is it?21:41
Minty_usr13: my pc is ethernet connected to router 2 which in turn is ethernet connected to router 121:41
Bashing-omPingless: AMD has relagated that series of cards to lagacy, and no longer supports them. 2 options, stay with open source, or install ubuntu legacy release 12.04.1 (other solutuons are NOT recommended).21:41
usr13(The one whith the dhcp server off), In other words, leave the DHCP server running on the gateway router, turn it off on the second one.21:42
Minty_i'm in a shared house and router 2 is in my room just for my stuff so it must be router 1 that is the dchp server otherwise i'd cause other people problems21:42

Minty_demianb: so is it possible for my pc to have it's default gateway pointed to router 1?21:43
usr13Minty_: I don't know what you have. At any rate, you just need to plug into a live internet connection.21:43
Minty_my pc has internet access at the moment btw if that has any implications21:43
demianbMinty_, In settings it should point to your dhcp router.21:43
Minty_i'm currently in windows on my pc and it connects fine21:43
demianbNevermind the cabling sequence. The 2nd router is only an extension of your cable.21:43

demianbMinty_, Thats fine it tells us the routers are set OK. Now you need to make it work in your Ubuntu installer..21:46
Minty_demainb: right it re-resolved and now it's connecting to the internet and shows as all connected but can't access the web, i guess this means it's looking for an ip from the default ipv4 gateway; router 2 and not getting 1, right?21:46

PinglessBashing-om: I've got a Windows install for my gaming needs ;) Where do we start?21:47
demianbBlank is not good. default gateway should be your dhcp router.21:47
Minty_usr13: previously router1 and router2 had dchp enabled. router1 had reserved ip for router2 and router2 had reserved ip for pc. pc also had static ip set in network adapter settings21:47
Minty_i have now turned dchp off on router 2 and i have removed static ip from pc and it now shows as connected but i have no internet access and default gateway is blank21:47
Minty_what next?21:47
gamoholicMinty_: Why do you have 2 routers?21:47
Minty_gamoholic: shared house - but that's really not my #1 right now!21:48
usr13Minty_: Yea, why 2 routers?21:48
Bashing-omPingless: To start, let's see what is pastebin -> lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga ; sudo lshw -C display <-.21:48
Minty_demianb: ipv4 connectivity: internet. ipv6 connectivity: no internet access21:48
demianbMinty_, open cmd and do a 'ipconfig /renew all' to fresh things up a bit. OMG windows support in #ubuntu :p21:48
gamoholicWhat is connected to #1? I think #2 would be the better choice for the DHCP server21:49
Minty_demianb: "The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissable for this operation"21:49
demianbiconfig /release all21:49
Minty_gamoholic: can't do that because everyone else is connected to router 121:49
Minty_ipv6 is that lan?21:49
PinglessBashing-om: http://pastebin.com/H5b17B7021:49
usr13Minty_: If you plug the gateway router into the secondary router's WAN port, leave secondary router's DHCP server on too.  If you want to turn off the DHCP server on the secondary router, plug the gateway router into one of it's LAN ports.21:50
demianbTwo routers is sometimes a solution because of lack of a switch21:50
bkfitzusr13, is that a proxy that I can use, or run?21:50
usr13bkfitz: yes21:50
demianbIPv6 is not really necessary. You can turn that off if you want to troubleshoot stuff.21:50
Bashing-omPingless: looking at your H5b17B70 paste.21:51
Minty_demianb: well currently ipv4 connectivity says "Internet" but ipv6 says "No Internet Access"21:51
usr13Minty_: You do not need ipv621:51
bkfitzusr13, so if i wanted to make my ip look like I'm in another state, that would work21:51
demianbIPv6 is cute but almost nobody uses it.21:51
Minty_ok so ipv4 says internet and control panel shows me connected to a network, allbeit "Unidentified" but i have no router access21:51
Minty_ipconfig /all reveals a blank default gateway21:51
bkfitzusr13, trying to access something that is geoip restricted21:51
llutzMinty_: your network setup worked before, ubuntu-installer in same setup gets no IP. i'd checked if the installer has any issues with your network-device before rearanging all your routers21:51
Minty_llutz: but dchp server active on 2 routers within 1 network is harmful anyway right? so i might be just fixing 2 problems here21:52
usr13bkfitz: That's not really the purpose for a proxy21:52
llutzMinty_: as you see, you're fixing nothing atm21:52
demianbMinty_, Assuming you know your way around windows, you should be able to open your ethernet settings and configure dhcp to either manual or automatic. Automatic should have it find your dhcp router by itself, and it should not be blank as such.21:52
Minty_demianb: I do. ipv4 and ipv6 are definitely set to obtain ip address automatically21:53
bkfitzusr13, what is the purpose of a proxy21:53
usr13Minty_: Read what I said before.  If you plug gateway router into the secondary router's WAN port, you can leave the DHCP server on.21:53
bkfitzusr13, route traffic21:53
bkfitzusr13, in my case so that the referrer is somewhere else21:53
usr13bkfitz: yes21:53
bkfitzusr13, yes21:53
usr13bkfitz: To do what you want to do, you need to  use a proxy elsewhere.21:54
bkfitzusr13, right...21:54
Minty_usr13: just to confirm by rewording it in a way i understand! if i move the connection coming into router2 from the lan port into one of the wan ports, i can leave dchp enabled on router2?21:54
demianbSomething just occured to me.. Your static IP settings for those two routers could be wrong, resulting in bad subnet on your 2nd router. Do any of the other PCs connected to your 2nd router have internet access?21:54
usr13bkfitz: http://www.hidemyass.com/proxy-list/421:55
Minty_demianb: yes, the laptop that i'm currently typing on21:55
Minty_demianb: this laptop is connected to router2 via wireless21:55
Minty_demianb: so what should i be doing right now? my pc's default gateway is blank21:55
Minty_demianb: shall i try rebooting router1?21:55
demianbIm thinking.. :p21:56
Minty_ok :P21:56
Minty_my laptop never had a reserved ip but it's working fine now even since router 2 had dchp turned off21:56
majodhmm does anyone know why ubuntu firefox plays only 360p html5 on youtube and windows shows 720p on the same video?21:56
Minty_so the problem seems to be a combination of my pc and it's previously reserved ip.21:56
usr13Minty_: If your gateway router is set up properly, (and is giving out proper IP inforation to it's clients), you should be ok to just run a cat5 cable from one of it's LAN ports to the WAN port of the second router and leve it set to dhcp, (for both LAN and WAN).21:56
demianbMeanwhile you could give usr13 s method a try, and enabling dhcp on the 2nd router again.. elbeit unorthodox IMO, but I am curious to see what happens..21:57
Bashing-omPingless: Open source driver is loaded, is the only problem you are experiencing a resolution issue ?21:57
Minty_ok, i will reboot everything once first just to make sure21:57
raj_" kernel: Cannot read proc file system: 1 - Operation not permitted. " getting these messages repeated, unstoppingly million times every minute in my syslog21:57

usr13Minty_: But if you know of an IP address that is not being used yet, you can set your PC to it and see if you can ping the router.  If you can set it as the default gateway and then see if you can ping, if you can set that as your nameserver.21:58
majodgamoholic: do you think its about x264? im in vmware :)21:59
PinglessBashing-om: lol, just as you asked that I got a message that there was a segfault in /usr/lib/gnome-desktop3/check_gl_texture_size. Other than that, my main problem is that the "Display" settings won't let me select a resolution higher than 1024x768, and won't let me dual-screen.21:59

gamoholicmajod: Do you have the VMWare tools (or whatever they are called) installed? They are called Guest Additions in VirtualBox22:00
usr13Minty_: You need an IP address, (that is in the subnet the router uses). You need a "default gateway IP", (that is the router's inside IP), and you need a nameserver IP, ( will do).22:00

Minty__usr13: but can i just point out22:42
Minty__the ONLY thing that has changed between now and the very start of this22:42
Minty__was i rebooted into windows and removed the static ip from pc and changed to obtain from dchp server22:42
=== jph98_ is now known as jph98
agopasi solved it22:42
Minty__all the messing arond with dchp server was in the middle of all of this troubleshooting22:42
agopasi changed the resolution to 800x600, which revealed the GNOME dock at the bottom.22:43
Minty__usr13: will installer give me option to create partition or should i have done that in windows beforehand?22:43
gamoholicagopas: Nice!22:43
usr13Minty__: We thought you had just plugged in the second router, (in which case you would need to configure it to suit your needs).'22:43
agopasthey don't teach you that kind of ingeneuity in school22:43
usr13Minty__: Yes22:43
usr13Minty__: The installer has it's own partitioning utility.22:44
Minty__usr13: thanks22:47
Minty__usr13: the screen of installer has been 'blank' so to speak for about 2 minutes now22:47
Minty__usr13: after the network configuration bit, screen is just purple22:47
Minty__can i tab into a CLI from here to see what is going on or?22:48
usr13!nomodeset | Minty__22:48
ubottuMinty__: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter22:48
usr13Minty__: Ctrl-Alt-F622:48
Minty__usr13: can i type something from there?22:48
usr13Minty__: But give it some time, it may be still loading up.22:48
usr13Minty__: Yes22:48
Minty__i hit ctrl + alt + f6, how can i get back out now :P22:49
Minty__usr13: been loading for close to 4 minutes now, so think i may have the problem you linked me to22:49
usr13or F7  (Not sure which)22:49
Minty__ah download mirror failed22:49
usr13Minty__: Check your IP configuration.22:50
Minty__changed mirror and all good - not having much mirror look today22:50
Minty__usr13: joker ;)22:50
usr13Oh ok22:50
Minty__encrypt home directory? worth doing? any cons?22:52
CpuIDhey ppls - is it just me or is the EC2 ubuntu S3-backed mirror in us-west-1 broken?22:53
usr13Minty__: No22:53
gamoholicYou will get less performance. Whether it is noticeable or not depends on how powerful your computer is. Do you have stuff you want to keep hidden from other people?22:53
Minty__usr13: ok22:53
usr13Not in my opinion....22:53
gamoholicCpuID: Yes, it is broken. I am very sad :'(22:53
gordonjcpMinty__: not really worth the bother22:53
CpuIDdamnit, getting a ton of 403's here22:53
Minty__gordonjcp: ok thanks, have skipped that22:53
gamoholicI switched to mirror.tocici.com, but it isn't as good22:53
gordonjcpMinty__: it's more secure, it will cause you to lose data22:54
Minty__does anyone use a U partition for ubuntu?22:54
CpuIDgamoholic: same as you?22:54
Minty__that considered a cool thing to do?!22:54
usr13Minty__: What is a U partition?22:54
CpuIDdo they know about it? :)22:54
Minty__gordonjcp: tbh i use dropbox for all my files anyway, nothing really personal. all work stuff is kept on a separate server22:54
Minty__usr13: just driver label :)22:54
CpuIDalso gamoholic, have you tested any other regions?22:54
gamoholicCpuID: No, I have not. I think they probably took it down, but I don't know where to find out22:55
usr13Minty__: I use 3:  swap  (size of ram or little more), #2 for /   #3 for /home/22:55
usr13Minty__: I like a separate partition for /home/22:55
CpuIDyea weird, im just testing us-west-2 now22:55
usr13Minty__: How much RAM do you have?22:55
Minty__usr13: 8gb22:55
usr13Minty__: Set your swap partition to 8G22:56
usr13or so ...22:56
usr138G+ a little22:56
Minty__usr13: the partition menu is weird as well, will need some advice on my selection... i currently have c which is windows and then some other partition that is reserved, primary and just 100mb, i think windows creates that too22:56
Minty__usr13: should i leave that one as is but resize c and then create another partition? what is this 'swap' partition that you are referring to?22:56
usr13Minty__: for /  about 40G maybe.  How big is the HD?22:56
Minty__usr13: 1tb but there is loads of "lost space" so to speak - at least within how windows reads the HDD from past os reinstalls etc22:57
Minty__but i'm still only using like 80gb or something22:57
usr13Minty__: You familiar with "virtual memory"?22:57
gamoholicMinty__: Do you want to keep the Windows stuff?22:57
Minty__gamoholic: for now, until i'm comfortable with ubuntu, yea, then i want to fully wipe all of that crap22:57
usr13Minty__: how much will you set aside for the Ubuntu install?22:57
Minty__usr13: i don't mind, 200gb?22:57
usr13Minty__: swap 8G,  / 40G, the rest for /home/22:58
Minty__usr13: what is swap?22:58
usr13Minty__: You familiar with "virtual memory"?22:58
cuddylierIs a CPU wait time of 4% spiking to 25% on an E3 - 1240v3 (4 cores) a bad thing?22:58
gamoholicIt is called a pagefile in Windows22:58
Minty__usr13: not sure. is that the result of paging?22:59
usr13(MS Windows Lingo = "virtual memory")22:59
usr13Minty__: yes22:59
m1sf1they :) quick, question. i'm running ubuntu server, and accessing the web just isn't working. the apache2, samba, and ssh servers all work fine though :S any thoughts?22:59
Minty__usr13: so what does swap do? just sets that side apart so you only ruin a small part of the HDD?22:59
daftykinsm1sf1t: run "nslookup google.com"22:59
daftykinsm1sf1t: and "ping google.com"22:59
usr13Minty__: I woudn't put it that way, but your "paging" is on it's own partition, that's all.23:00
Minty__usr13: how does ubuntu know to only page that partition?23:00
m1sf1tit timed out :(23:00
Minty__and can i set that partition and my ubuntu partition up from the installer? or will i need to do that later?23:00
daftykinsm1sf1t: which?23:00
m1sf1ti've tried ping, no luck23:01
usr13Minty__: So set a swap partition to about 8G.   Another one of about 40G for /  Another one for the rest of the space for /home/23:01
daftykinsm1sf1t: ok edit /etc/resolv.conf to read "nameserver"23:01
daftykinsm1sf1t: then try again23:01
Minty__usr13: what about windows?23:01
m1sf1tspecifically or my actual dns?23:01
gamoholicm1sf1t: Is this a new server?23:01
Minty__usr13: and can i do all this from the installer or will this just allow me to do the 1 partition configuration that is needed for the install23:01
m1sf1tyeah, i set it up two days ago23:01
usr13Minty__: Ubuntu knows what partitions to use for what by what is written to /etc/fstab file.23:01
usr13!fstab | Minty__23:01
ubottuMinty__: The /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions23:01
gamoholicm1sf1t: Static IP or DHCP?23:01
Minty__usr13: ok great, i'll configure that after then23:01
Minty__usr13: when you say /home/ you mean the default ubuntu partition yea?23:02
usr13Minty__: It will be done for you.23:02
m1sf1tstatic ip23:02
usr13Minty__: /home/ is the user space. (Where all your user's files go).23:02
gamoholicm1sf1t: How did you set it? /etc/network/interfaces ?23:02
Minty__usr13: ok. So i currently have windows partition and some other shitty 100mb partition. Am I creating 3 more?23:02
m1sf1twhat command should i use to restart my netoworking service?23:02
usr13Minty__: Right.23:02
gamoholicsudo restart networking23:03
Minty__usr13: in terms of my options in the installer do i "resize scsi6" or "resize scsi7"23:03
usr13Minty__: What do you have now?23:03
m1sf1tthe interfaces file is set to iface eth0 inet static23:03
usr13Minty__: If you have partitions of the sizes you want, there is no need to resize anything.23:04
Minty__usr13: ah looks like 1 refers to my usb stick23:04
daftykinsm1sf1t: do what i said (:23:04
Minty__usr13: i have no partitions set up yet. that is what i mean - can i set them all up from within the installer?23:04
Minty__or does it just want me to worry about the 1 for now23:04
daftykinsm1sf1t: no network restart command really works properly anymore so i wouldn't recommend it23:04
m1sf1ti set the dns to
Minty__usr13: i need to resize my windows partition anywya bceause that is currently like 1tb23:04
usr13Minty__: If you have yet to set aside any free space, then resize the MS Windows partition, (to a smaller size).23:05
m1sf1tshould it work now? ill try23:05
daftykinsm1sf1t: and what happens now?23:05
m1sf1tnope, still not working :(23:05
daftykinsm1sf1t: timeout with DNS?23:05
daftykinsm1sf1t: as in nslookup google.com ?23:05
usr13Minty__: ... and then use the resulting "free space" for the new [Ubuntu] partitions.23:05
m1sf1tin firefox, it's saying server not found still23:05
m1sf1till try ping and nslookup23:06
daftykinsm1sf1t: i thought you said it was a server, why does it have firefox? :P23:06
usr13m1sf1t: ping
m1sf1tbecause it's also the computer i use lol23:06
m1sf1tit's not a busy site23:06
gamoholicm1sf1t: So which version of Ubuntu is it?23:06
Minty__usr13: ah this is scary :P ubuntu isn't very clear on which partition is which23:06
daftykinsit's totally clear!23:07
m1sf1terrm... the latest LTS23:07
m1sf1t12.04 i think23:07
usr13Minty__: Well, you could have resized the partition while still booted into MS Windows.23:07
usr13Minty__: But what do you see?23:07
Minty__yea i should have, oh well sorting it now23:07
gamoholicUse the network manager for the desktop version23:07
Minty__oh for goodness sake, "the resize operation is impossible"23:07
m1sf1ti have the lxde desktop installed, can't find any network manager :(23:08
CpuIDgamoholic: us-west-2 and us-east-1 look OK apt repo wise (s3 backed, testing precise specifically)23:08
daftykinsMinty__: did you defrag your Windows install like you're supposed to?23:08
usr13Minty__: The biggest one is obviously the MS Windows one that needs to be shrunk down to a [much] smaller size.23:08
Minty__daftykins: not sure what that means but no one told me about that so nope23:08
Minty__usr13: yea, not possible to resize apparently23:08
daftykinsMinty__: you aren't familiar with defragmenting?23:08
Minty__daftykins: but i run defrags all the time23:08
daftykinswait what23:09
Minty__daftykins: yea, always running - i think this is more likely due to the junk left from previous reinstalls of windows23:09
daftykinsyou just contradicted yourself...23:09
zztwI'm trying to install ubuntu on an asus xenbook and after I select the volume to install on it's giving me this window that just has "???" for both title and message. any idea? It's a striped raid 0 of two ssds; does that make a difference?23:09
Minty__daftykins: yea my bad, i misread the first time23:09
usr13daftykins: I think Win7 does that automatically from time to time, so it's not a big issue.23:09
daftykinsusr13: only on mechanicals23:09
usr13Minty__: Why can't you resize the partition>?23:09
usr13daftykins: It is a 1TB drive.23:10
Minty__usr13: no idea says it is impossible23:10
gamoholicCpuID: This is what I get when I open http://us-west-2.ec2.archive.ubuntu.com.s3.amazonaws.com/ubuntu/ in my browser: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7024615/23:10
basketballlgamoholic,  i bought a monitor yesterday that has a different resolution as my laptop how can i remove the black border of laptop23:10
usr13Minty__: It should show how much space is used and how much is empty. Right?23:10
Minty__usr13: in the partition disks installation menu, i have only 4 options now "guided - use entire disk", "guided - use entire desk and set up lvm" and "guided - use entire desik and set up encrypted lvm" and "manuaal"23:10
Minty__the entire disk options give me warnings that "all the data on this partition will be erased"23:11
Minty__maybe i should just go for it and erase my windows partition...23:11
usr13Minty__: I suppose "guided" would be best, but I always use manual.23:11
Minty__when i use manual, it won't let me resize partition23:11
=== duoi_afk is now known as duoi
usr13Minty__: Yea! Go for it!  :)23:11
Minty__so i feel pressured to wipe windows altogether now!23:11

gamoholicbasketball: Are you using both the new monitor and your laptop's monitor, or just the new monitor?23:11
Minty__am i going to love ubuntu?!23:11
Minty__convince me, quick!23:12
Minty__what is "set up lvm"23:12
usr13Minty__: What most of us find is that we rarely boot to MS Windows any more.  (Let's face it, we can only use one OS at a time anyway.)23:12
usr13Minty__: LVM is good.23:12
usr13!lvm | Minty__23:12
ubottuMinty__: Tips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto23:12
gamoholicI just use 2 computers with Synergy :P23:12
Minty__usr13: i know but anything that doesn't work with wine might make me cry23:12
usr13Minty__: LVM is Large Volume Management (or something like that), and what it means is that you can resize your partitions on the fly23:13
gamoholicMinty__: What are the specs of your computer? CPU, RAM, etc.23:13
Minty__gamoholic: 8gb ram ddr2 and some quad core 2.4ghz processor23:13
usr13Minty__: Then just resize the MS Windows partition and use free space.23:13
Minty__not that great, i am in the process of saving for a new machine and when i do, will probably convert this to a media server anyway23:14
usr13Minty__: CHoose the Manual option23:14
=== scarface is now known as Guest54904
gamoholicThen you can use VirtualBox to run Windows for the few programs that you may need that don't work in Wine :)23:14
Minty__would want to use ubuntu for that but plex doesn't currently support it23:14
Minty__gamoholic: i guess!23:14
=== Discovery is now known as Guest46599
Minty__usr13: i can't choose manual because it says resizing is impossible23:14
Minty__usr13: if i use guided - use entire desik and set up lvm, i can just overwrite everything. right i'm scared but i'm going to go for it23:15
DaekdroomIs indicator-power a default indicator in Ubuntu 12.04.4?23:15
usr13Minty__: If you have your Win7 install CD, you can do a VM for it.23:15
Minty__usr13: yea i do23:15
Minty__ok, i'm going to use the guided option and set up lvm23:16
usr13Minty__: Or you can back out and resize the MS Windows partition (after booting back to Win7).23:16
Minty__it says "After the LVM is configured, no additional changes to the partinioning scheme of disks containing physical volumes are allowed during the installation"23:16
pac1Minty, make sure you've backed up your personal files.23:16
Minty__pac1: dropbox23:16
usr13Minty__: Yer good to go.23:16
Minty__ok done it23:17
zztwis there any issue with installing to a raid 0 volume of two ssds?23:17
basketballlgamoholic,  i bought a monitor yesterday that has a different resolution as my laptop how can i remove the black border of laptop23:17
Minty__usr13: what was the purpose of the 40gb partition?23:17
saethhello, I need some help with xubuntu and kwin ... I installed kwin on xubuntu and it works great with one exception - all my workspaces disappeared and I only have one 3: I believe there is some way to fix it, however I have no idea how.23:17
gamoholicbasketballl: Please answer my question that I have already asked you twice.23:18
Minty__it's asking me how much space to give to this installation - this is the 40gb bit right?23:18
usr13Minty__: For system files, (applications and configuration files).23:18
basketballlyou didnt ping me gamoholic  i dont know what you asked23:18
gamoholic[03/02 16:11:53] <gamoholic> basketball: Are you using both the new monitor and your laptop's monitor, or just the new monitor?23:18
pac1Minty,  40gb should be plenty.  I usually get away with 10 or 15.23:19
basketballlgamoholic,  both i have side by side set up23:19
pac1you'll probably want to configure a separate partition as /home23:19
usr13Minty__: Like I said before, I would use about 8G or so for swap, about 40G or so for / (root directory where application files and config files live), and the rest for /home/23:19
saethbasketballl, there should be a button on your keyboard that lets you switch between screens - usually it's fn+f6 and once you do that, it should automatically adapt the resolution. If you use just the display and don't use your laptop display at the same time, there should be no problem23:19
Minty__can someone explain how this LVM works. i now have LV root of 31.5gb and LV swap_1 of 8.6gb23:19
Minty__then in addition to that i have SCSI2 of 1.0TB which consists of #1 primary 254.8mb (what is this?) and 999.9GB logical23:20
basketballlsaeth,  i use both like in the movies23:20
saethohh, so try pressing this key combo anyway and see what happens23:20
saethif it doesn't work then try messing up with display settings and there should be an option for 2 display mode23:21
gamoholicbasketballl: Since they are different resolutions you will either have the black borders or you will have to stretch the resolution, which won't look very good. I recommend just leaving the black borders.23:21
basketballlsaeth,  ok i dont have second monitor with me right npow23:21
usr13Minty__: LVM = Logical Volume Manager23:21
=== on247 is now known as Guest15290
pac1Minty,  LVM works sort of like a regular partitioning scheme,  but its more flexible.  It doesn't store partition info on the MBR.23:21
Minty__so lvm is a breakdown and manager of the physical total space?23:21
usr13Minty__: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logical_Volume_Manager_%28Linux%2923:21
basketballlgamoholic,  why do they need to be same resolution when seperate they are great23:21
pac1Minty__, you can think of it that way.23:21
Minty__and then 254.8mb has been auto allocated for /boot23:22
Minty__is that normal?23:22
usr13Minty__: "Managing large hard disk farms by allowing disks to be added and replaced without downtimes and services disruption, in combination with hot swapping."23:22
pac1That's one way to do it.  I gave up on the /boot partition a long time ago.23:22
saethoh, once we are talking about hdds, I have one more problem: I have 2 disks - one is system drive which is ssd and the other one is a normal 250gb hdd with one ext4 partition on it23:22
Minty__pac1: shall i just delte it?23:22
Minty__pac1: it's confusing as that is in addition to the 999.9gb LVM23:22
usr13Minty__: That's ok.  (The kernels go in /boot/)23:22
Minty__ok, i'll leave it as is23:23
saeththe disk doesn't mount automatically - It appears gray on the desktop and I have to double-click it to mount it. Is there a way to do that automatically on startup?23:23
gamoholicbasketballl: Hmmm, true. You should be able to have them at different resolutions. Open the display manager and mess around.23:23
Minty__just submitted partition changes23:23
Minty__goodbye windows installation23:23
usr13Minty__: It is LVM so it can be resized later if you want (allows for resiging on-the-fly)23:23
Bublik2002anyone set up their ubuntu box as a dvr and tv server?23:23

Minty__usr13: that's my hope! 85% through base system installation, i feel this is probably the important bit23:27
usr13But I dono....  But I think the installer is all loaded into ramdisk23:27
Minty__usr13: i'm just wondering how it accesses the next stage of the menu...23:27
pac1Minty__, if your installing, and still have drives you want to preserve, you may want to turn them off.23:27

pac1part of the installation process runs a partition manager.23:29

Minty__i said "Guided - Use entire disk and setup LVM"23:29
Minty__i'm fairly sure that wiped the old partition setup and replaced with this new one? now installing the system23:29
pac1the partition manager reads the partition table from the very beginning of the drive.23:29

pac1When you finish it re-writes the partition table.23:30
Minty__so, "Install security updates automatically" or "Manage System with Lanscape" i'm swaying towards the first unless anyone has any advice?23:30
Minty__pac1: yea i did that, was all deliberate and slightly through through23:31
Minty__thought through*23:31
Minty__a Canonical service23:31
usr13Guest15290: vsftpd works just fine but is set  pretty secure by default.23:31
pac1Go ahead with install automatically.23:31
Minty__pac1: great cheers23:31
pac1every day or so, you'll get the opportunity to update.23:31
pac1So what step are you at?23:31
Minty__pac1: when there is a new LTS, can i update from CLI23:32
usr13Minty__: Yes23:32
Minty__pac1: 'Select and Install Software' roughly 18%' just been interrupted by 'Software Selection' stage23:32
Guest15290i can login and dl just fine it just wont mkdir23:32
Minty__goodness me, lots of additional selections here... is there a best practice for addons for just desktop use?23:32
Minty__"Ubuntu desktop" sounds good. How about "Ubuntu desktop USB"23:32
pac1Ubuntu Desktop USB is probably for installing on a memory stick.23:33
Minty__oh rubbish, accidentally skipped past that stage23:33
Minty__what a disaster23:33
Minty__can i access that list at a later stage?23:33
pac1if you picked ubuntu desktop you should be good to go on.23:33
Minty__didn't select anything23:33
Minty__was about to select postgres database, hit enter but think enter bypassed selection23:34
Minty__i should really pay more attention23:34
usr13!dist-upgrade | Minty__23:34
ubottuMinty__: A dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.23:34
Minty__usr13: how about just installing the packages when they're not installed23:34
Minty__are these things just available through apt-get?23:34
usr13!apt | Minty__23:34
ubottuMinty__: APT is the Advanced Package Tool, which together with dpkg forms the basic Ubuntu package management toolkit. Short apt-get manual: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGetHowto - Also see !Synaptic (Gnome), !Muon (KDE) or !Apper (KDE)23:34
pac1several ways to do it.23:34
Minty__pretty excited to use apt-get23:35
Minty__looks flipping amazing23:35
pac1apt-get install package23:35
pac1sudo -s23:35
usr13!synaptic | Minty__23:35
ubottuMinty__: A Graphical Package Manager. For a good howto see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticHowto23:35
Minty__pac1: is the value very sensitive? could i install latest google chrome version through sudo apt-get install chrome23:35
Minty__GRUB boot loader? do i want that?23:35
pac1yes.  probably grub-223:36
pac1no boot loader, no os.23:36
gamoholicMinty__: Chrome is not available in the repos, you have to install the .deb23:36
usr13Minty__: Yes, let it write grub to MBR23:36
Minty__gamoholic: ok i'll learn that one when i come to it i guess!23:36
tomreynthere's chromium-browser, thugh23:36
usr13pac1: Not probably, definately23:36
pac1to get chrome, just go to google and download it.  when it comes in, open it with the package manager and it will install.23:37
gamoholicTrue, but I like the extra features in Chrome23:37
pac1try chromium.  same thing without the googleness.23:37
Minty__i like chrome23:37
Minty__+ need for web development testing23:38
gamoholicBiggest thing I don't like about Chromium is the lack of a built-in PDF reader23:38
pac1nice thing about linux.  You want it, you go get it.23:38
pac1free beer.23:38
usr13try firefox, Like googleness without googleness23:38
Minty__ok so i didn't install ubuntu desktop or anything other than the core23:38
Minty__i've inadvertedly jumped into the deep end and i've just logged in via the biggest CLI i've ever seen23:38
Minty__i'd like a desktop please :)23:39
gamoholicMinty__: Which version did you download?23:39
basketballlhow do i install Catalyst Control Center23:39
Minty__sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop23:39
usr13Minty__: Well, if a server is what you want, yes.  But if you want a desktop OS with a GUI, install the Desktop23:39
Minty__gamoholic: 12.0423:39
majodbasketballl: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/AMD23:39
Minty__usr13: yea i had fully planned to but... it didn't go quite to plan23:39
gamoholicYes, but did you download the desktop version or the server version?23:39
Minty__gamoholic: i'm hoping the desktop version23:39
gamoholicWhat is the name of the iso that you downloaded?23:39
usr13Minty__: Thats' ok. YOu can install it afterward.  sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop23:40
Minty__mini because it was the net thing23:40
Minty__usr13: ok running that now23:40
usr13Minty__: or sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop   etc. etc. etc.23:40
usr13Minty__: Did you reboot already?23:40
gamoholicAh, yeah, that is just the bare essentials necessary to get a system running. For a beginner I would recommend either Ubuntu Desktop or Lubuntu.23:40
Minty__usr13: yea currently downloading ubuntu desktop23:40
Minty__pretty cool to see a 32" screen filled with GET commands23:40
gamoholicBut as previously stated, you can install it with apt-get :)23:41
Minty__gamoholic: yea 52% through23:41
basketballlmajod,  can i use that with intel graphics23:41
pac1swift machine!23:41
usr13Minty__: You have a fast pipe23:41
Minty__usr13: what does that mean? net speed?23:41
majodbasketballl: catalys control center is for AMD/ATI graphics23:41
pac1yeah, but you have to pay the piper!23:41
Minty__pac1: 120mb fibre optic, can't complain too much ;)_23:41
basketballlmajod,  i want to get rid of black border with dual monitor set up23:42

majodbasketballl: i cant help you with that, sorry, i dont have experience with intel graphics23:42
basketballlmajod,  do you know someone who does23:43
Minty__does anyone use spotify with ubuntu'?23:43
majodnope, but just try asking your question and someone will maybe answer :)23:43
majodMinty__: i do23:43
Minty__majod: is it alright?23:43
majodyes, just like windows23:43
basketballlmajod,  how do i find out what graohiocs cARD I HAVE'23:43

Minty__pac1: na, i'm a virgin23:44
jhutchinsbasketballl: lspci | grep -i vga23:44
pac1from what you've said today, you're going to do fine.23:44
Minty__pac1: imminent deflowering happening as soon as it finishes selecting and unpacking the billion files involved in this ubuntu desktop installation...23:44
Minty__pac1: cheers :) appreciate the confidence boost, i feel like my performance has been pretty terrible if i'm honest but i'm looking forward to the learning curve. i've been programming long enough but loyal to windows due to my day job and need for compatability...23:45
usr13Minty__: ... and all this time we thought you were a guy...23:45
Minty__apparently my perception was outdated and also, i'm sick of the hampered workflow when i'm using text editors / web developing etc. so decided it was about time to port over23:45
basketballli want to get rid of black border with dual monitor set up  Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)23:45

tejasey guys23:46
jhutchinsMinty__: Could we get the conversation back to support questions/answers please?23:46
usr13!itunes | Minty__23:46
ubottuMinty__: itunes is not available on Linux, but there are many audio player alternatives (see !players). For Daap clients (sharing music with other iTunes clients on the network), install banshee23:46
Minty__jhutchins: yea sorry - i've fuelled the off topic, my bad23:46
jhutchinsMinty__: THere are other places for social chat.23:46
tejasanybody know how i can identify if my chipset can inject?23:46
usr13tejas: What?23:47
usr13tejas: cat /proc/cpuinfo23:47
Minty__ok... so support question; if something isn't available through apt-get install (i assume this means it's in the ubuntu software centre?), how would i go about manually installing a .deb file or whatever they are23:47
majodMinty__: you will double click it23:48
daftykinsMinty__: you don't do that, you look for an official PPA23:48
mnemonMinty__: dpkg -i file.deb23:48
Minty__daftykins: PPA?23:48
usr13!ppa | Minty__23:48
ubottuMinty__: A Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa and !ppa-purge23:48
gamoholicMinty__: sudo dpkg -i "package name".deb; sudo apt-get -f -y install23:48
daftykinsPPA > .deb > compile23:48
majod.debs are compiling?23:48
=== Black_hacker is now known as mpohaz
usr13Minty__: BTW, your first support question is free.23:49
gamoholicmajod: No, dafty is saying that PPAs are greater than the other 223:49
tejasanyobdy know the user starcannon?23:49
majodoh i see, sorry23:49
tejashe used to be here a long time ago23:49
tejasrobby cannon23:49
Minty__usr13: meaning only free stuff is avilable through apt-get install?23:49
daftykinsyep order of preference/sanity23:49
Minty__daftykins: can you recommend a good PPA??23:49
gamoholicMinty__: Yes, you cannot buy anything through apt-get23:49
usr13Minty__: Was a hopeless attempt at humor....23:49
Minty__gamoholic: but spotify client is free23:49
Minty__usr13: oh i see, sorry - getting late, brain stopping23:50

majodtalking about hardware, has anyone idea why my last installation of ubuntu 13.10 kept my cpu at constant 800mhz, no matter what? intel i5 444023:50
pac1Minty__, http://ipod.about.com/od/advanceditunesuse/f/Downloading-Itunes-For-Linux.htm23:50
Minty__this ubuntu desktop is taking ages to install23:50
gamoholicMinty__: If something isn't available through the repo google '"thing you are looking for" ppa'23:50
Minty__gamoholic: i see and that will be a file or?23:50
usr13Minty__: Yea, it's a LOT to download.23:50
pac1Soup's on... gotta go.23:50
Minty__pac1: take care,thanks for the help23:51
gamoholicMinty__: No. It will be a command that you run. "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:/something"23:51
usr13Minty__: Having all that stuff on the install media is [obviously] faster.23:51
mnemonhmm, are universe, multiverse etc. enabled by default on desktop ubuntu? if not, enable those before going for random ppa's23:51
daftykinsMinty__: it doesn't work like that, you find PPA's specifically for the software you're after23:52
Minty__by their very natures, aren't files available through PPAs always going to be less up to date than the provider's .deb files?23:52
=== whoever is now known as Guest48577
Minty__or do i need to see PPA providers more like 'indexers'?23:52
mnemonMinty__: no, usually people use ppa's because they have a custom or more recent build of the application23:53
gamoholicMinty__: PPAs are extra repos. If you install .deb files you may have to update manually23:53
usr13!restricted | Minty__23:53
ubottuMinty__: For multimedia issues, this page has useful information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats - See also https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/ubuntu-help/media.html  - But please use free formats if you can: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeFormats23:53
mnemonor something that's not in the official ubuntu repos23:53
Minty__gamoholic: but how does the PPA keep up to date?23:53
usr13Minty__: Only use ppa's if you really need them.23:53
gamoholicThrough apt-get23:53
Minty__gamoholic: or am i just trusting them to provide updates frequently?23:53
mnemonMinty__: they have a maintainer.23:53
Minty__so when i want something not available through apt-get, even if i find the .deb file from the provider, i should still search for a PPA?23:54
Gotoleiis there a way to change horizontal scrolling speed for both mouse and touchpad?23:54
daftykinsMinty__: yes.23:54
daftykinsMinty__: but why do you think this situation is going to arise?23:54
usr13Minty__: ONce you get a package installed, where by ppa or normal repositories, when updates are available, you will be notified and asked if you want to upgrade to newer version.23:54
Minty__daftykins: ok and launchpad is an example of a PPA procider?23:54
Minty__daftykins: there's loads. spotify is just 1 quick example23:54
Minty__daftykins: seems odd though because spotify is a free client, it's only the additional service that isn't free23:54
usr13Minty__: free is not the issue.23:55
majodbut spotify for linux is still in development, not oficially released23:55
Minty__what's the reason for dropbox then? https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=linux23:55
Minty__that's a .deb file so i'll be looking for a PPA for that too23:55
mnemonproprietary software rarely is even in the non-free repos.23:57
usr13Minty__: The difference between PPAs vs the main repositories is un-official vs official so-to-speak23:57
Minty__usr13: yea that's why i can't understand going direct to PPAs over the provider23:58
usr13Minty__: agreed23:58
jhutchinsMinty__: PPAs can be anybody's personal project, and the quality can vary from better-than-ubuntu to wreck-your-system.23:58
usr13Minty__: Well, waitl23:58
Picijhutchins: well put23:58
Minty__jhutchins: how does 1 go about finding the good ones?23:58
usr13Minty__: If you install via the package manager, you are a lot better of.  For one thing, the package manager resovles dependencies.23:58
Minty__also, when i boot ubuntu, it's all great but mid way through boot the screen goes weirldy pixelated with random patterns of broken looking pixels23:59
Kavkazsomebody highlight me in a few seconds please and thank you.23:59
Minty__it's completely fine once the login screen is reached but  should i be worried about that?23:59
usr13Minty__: There are other reasons to use the package management system.23:59
jhutchinsMinty__: One listens carefully.  One reads the mailing lists.  One always thinks twice before deviating from the standard repos.23:59
Minty__jhutchins: but things like spotify and dropbox should be so available in standard repos!23:59
jhutchinsMinty__: One potential problem is that a release update might fail if you've installed from ppas.23:59
Kavkazthanks Gotolei23:59
usr13jhutchins: Well said.23:59
