isashaJust wondering, how come both chromium and firefox have such a hard time keeping up with my browsing on ubuntu, compared with os x?00:45
fibz_dont know. my xubuntu renders pages in firefox faster then windows or osx00:45
isashaOn the same laptop, under ubuntu things start to visibly slow down with just a few tabs open, whereas under os x I can have a hundred tabs open before any lag starts to come00:45
isashafurthermore, if I open a tab too many, the whole system hangs and I have to force shut it down00:46
isasha... aaand the problem now is that I force shut it down improperly and now it won't boot :/00:46

isashano problem ;)00:48
fibz_im my experience, it's either a problem with the sata/ide controller, a problem with the cable, a problem with the hard drive, or it is just swapping too much. cant keep up with running the system and swap. but that may not be your problem. if you dont get an answer right away, i would take this problem to the forum00:49

marzI was playing with compiz settings via the CCSM program. I accidentally tweaked it to make every transparent. How do I reset it?04:22
BeldarwhichDesktop, Most of that desktop is already there as gnome 3 under unity.04:22
BeldarwhichDesktop, See later releases.04:22
Beldarmarz, There is a reset, however if differs on the ubuntu releases, which are you running?04:24
whichDesktopBeldar: is 13 less stable than 12.04 or 12.1?04:24
marzBeldar: 12.04 64-bit. P.S. I already uninstalled the compizconfig-settings-manager04:24
BeldarwhichDesktop, Not answerable.04:24
alexandros_cBen64 here is the command and error https://gist.github.com/amcollie/936113204:25
Beldarmarz, That does no good, is it still gone, unity is a plugin in it, this unity?04:25
whichDesktopBeldar: why not04:25

Beldarmarz, "the unity of the other account" what does that mean?04:26
justin_zwCorrect me if I'm wrong, but pages made with FormSpecialPage actually process the submitted data on the same page, right? So the onSubmit callback is suppoes to be doing whatever you wanted to do with that data?04:26
justin_zw(For example, for an email extension, I would send the email in onSubmit)04:27
marzBeldar: I'm not so sur emyself either. What I'm trying to say is when I logged in to my other account, the account where I used the CCSM, all the windows that I open are transparent.04:27
Beldarmarz, If compiz is correct unity --reset should work04:27
Beldarmarz, try in that account unity --reset   usually a reboot or logout is needed.04:28
marzBeldar: Can't do it in tty, I can't do it in GUI either since I can't see anything when I log in to the other account.04:28

TheProfGood day.  I've been running ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my server for over a year very well. But now a recent reboot and my machine will not load: "Gave up waiting for root device" and "ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/really-long-string does not exist." and drops me into a busy-box shell.  I'm the IT volunteer at this school so I'm looking for guidance please.05:04
somsipjayar: su -l jayar && cd05:04
somsipTheProf: sounds like a dead HD, bad connection, or similar05:05
crocketWhat feed aggregator do you recommend for ubuntu 13.10?05:05
TheProfsomsip, Hello.  The boot partition resides on a RAID1 controller.  The raid 1 says it's not degraded.  I suppose my question is - if the disk is dead, how did it boot up that far? Thank you05:06
somsipTheProf: no idea about raid, so I can't help further05:06
TheProfsomsip, That's no problem.  Assuming that it's just a regular drive, is there a recommended course of action to resolve this?05:08
somsipTheProf: check connections, check BIOS, check the HD in another machine, replace the HD. Something like that05:08
GoldStandardis it okay to trust ubuntu mirrors? also, each time i try to determine the best server using the "select best server" tool, it gives me a different result05:10
TheProfsomsip, OK I understand.  If I can access / on the failed drive on another machine, can I pull off certain configuration files to keep my users username and passwords?05:10
somsipGoldStandard: official mirrors are official. Network conditions may vary05:10
GoldStandardsomsip cool thanks05:11
GoldStandardsomsip are mirrors really that much faster than the main server?05:11
somsipTheProf: trying in anpther machine will isolate whether it's a HD issue or a HD controller/mobo issue (or possibly something else that isn't directly the HD's fault)05:11
somsipGoldStandard: depends on network conditions. I do't use US servers because I don't like in the US, for example05:12

CarlFKnotworking: "get the choice to use the old OS"   says something about grub, right?  if so, you should also have a rescue mode choice, or advanced options05:42

Beldarkopasetik, Not a support issue is all.05:57
Beldarnoobuntu, You can make a ntfs in linux or on the install.05:58
noobuntuSo after I change the partition type, it won't just "corrupt" and shut off and be unable to change OS, correct? I'm changing the type while on the same OS.06:00
kopasetikwell, don't i need to install a new version of the app?06:00

CarlFKnoobuntu: if you are hoping to change ntfs to ext4 .. I would be very surprised if you can do that without backing, mkfs, restore.  "in place upgrade" is what you want, and all I can find is ext3 to 4, like mentioned in the link I just posted06:14

Voyageusing kubuntu,  I cant speak by my microphone pluged in. but the built in micro phone of my laptop works. I have toogled the audio settings but no use. any one has a clue?  I used  pavucontrol but  cant work with any drop down option in pavucontrol...  any other way to see if my audio can work?09:03
iptableg0ne, use putty emulator ;)09:03
iptableVoyage, is the external mic a mini-jack or an USB?09:04
Voyageiptable,  external mic09:06
Voyageits like a long thing thing plugged into the mic port09:06
iptableVoyage, I do understand it's external. Question is, is it a USB external, or mini-jack? I.e. rectangle plugin or a small round one?09:07
Voyageits not usb for sure09:07
iptableVoyage, in that case, when you plug it in, your motherboard automatically switches sound from built-in microphone to external microphone. There is no sftware control for it09:08
Voyageya, the internal mic works ok. but when I plug the external, it doesnot works.09:08
iptableVoyage, it means, as soon as the mic is plugged in, it should be working instead of the internal one. The software doesn't know if anything is plugged in or not. It's hardware controlled.09:08
Voyagewhat can be the reason09:08
iptableVoyage, 1. faulty microphone, or 2. faulty/loose connection on your computer09:09
Voyageno, its not hardware issue09:09
iptableVoyage, test with another external microphone to find out which one is at fault. Alternatively get a USB microphone. These work very well and you can switch to them using pavucontrol at your heart's content.09:09
Voyageas I have a wired problem in windows 7. there, the mic works, but headphones dont. its really strange09:09
Voyageiptable,  I have dont testing another mic.09:10
Voyagesame for all09:10
iptableVoyage, it IS hardware issue. Software, as stated, has got nothing to do with it.09:10
iptableVoyage, hardware automatically switches inputs. Tried wiggling it a bit while recordign sound?09:10
Voyageiptable,  if it was hardware issue. the external mic should not have worked in windows 709:10
majodiptable: that nick is really confusing :)09:10
Voyageiptable,  tried wigling. yes.09:10
iptablemajod, just 1 table, I'm not greedy. When my nick was iptables, I got pinged whenever someone mentioned them.09:11
Voyageiptable,  if it was hardware issue. the external mic should not have worked in windows 7  . < do I have a point?09:11
iptableVoyage, how many sound cards does pavucontrol see?09:11
Voyagelet me see09:11
iptableVoyage, not necessarily. are you sure you plugged it in to mic control and not accidentally to sound OUT?09:11
VoyageI used sound input09:12
VoyageI can see  microphone, internal microphone, line in.       none worked09:12
Voyageiptable,  ^09:12
iptableVoyage, uhm, what actual inputs/outputs do you have on your motherboard?09:13
gfhhhjwhat the09:13
gfhhhjcommand for update09:13
Voyageiptable,  output is one headphone port. input is one mic port09:14
iptableVoyage, only 2 ports?09:14
Voyageiptable,  yes09:14
iptableVoyage, and does pavucontrol otherwise change sound settings for you (like volume)?09:14
Voyageit does09:15
g0nehow do i list all muh fonts09:15
iptableVoyage, so mic goes into input and you set it as "Microphone".09:15
g0necan i preview them?09:15
Voyageiptable,  affirmative09:15
Caelumbut there are better progs09:16
Caelumg0ne: try terminator09:16
iptableVoyage, so, in pavucontrol, you go to the "input devices" tab and make sure the "port" is set to microphone. check all ports for the sake of it.09:16
Caelumg0ne: konsole is also nice09:16
iptableVoyage, also, once selected each port, change volume a bit to make sure it volumizes it before testing.09:17
=== pseudo is now known as pseudo_opcode
=== hello_world is now known as super-g
iptableVoyage, also in "Configuration" tab, make sure your audio is set as "analogue stereo duplex"09:20
=== CyberJacob is now known as CyberJacob|Away
Voyageiptable,  the mic switches when i plug in the external. switches means from internal to external but the volumn dont change while i speak in the external one\09:20
iptableVoyage, I know. but sometimes the volume control might not be reading it right after plugin. can you just try?09:21
iptableVoyage, and also click on "fallback" button in "input devices" section. Are you sure you chosen "duplex" as I told you?09:21
iptableVoyage, and one last thing, if you unplug both the speakers and the microphone and then plug only microphone in, does it work then?09:21
iptableVoyage, and it one thing doesn't work in windows, while another in ubuntu, and both of the same sound card, it looks like some screwed up hardware, and that would be hardware issue, with sofwtare not being able to find out how the hell it's meant to work...09:22
ktosiekHi! Is anyone here using the Ubuntu-provided redmine?09:23

tripelb12.04 the panel marker for networking vanished. (and it still hangs in downloading adobe flash)09:26
iptableVoyage, I would still blame the hardware. Looks like it's got some control modes messed up. you could maybe get it to work if you try enough times... try changing from "duplex" to "input" in configuration tab and playing with that. at some point you will get mic to work, but no sound then :D09:26

Voyageiptable,  thanks09:28
iptableVoyage, no problem. I would complain to HW vendor if you can and get antoher machine (if it's new).09:29
Voyageiptable,  i see when external mic is selected. the volumn goes up and down. but not according to my voice. and I dont hear anything in the recording. else than distortion09:29
iptableVoyage, it could be that the solders are loose on the ports, causing a short circuit and you can only get one to work.09:29
iptableVoyage, that would be the short circuit I just said about. looks like a goner09:30
Voyageiptable,  strange that linux and windows make work the opposit09:30
Voyagethe mic works in windows 7 but not the hadphone09:30
iptableVoyage, they use different settings. you could get linux to be working as windows is, but by default it's the other way09:30
iptableVoyage, for £5 / $8 you can pickup a USB sound card that does wonders, including mic and output.09:31

iptableVoyage, that's what I had to do on my old laptop. Altohugh nowadays I just use USB mic and USB headsets. easier.09:31

iptablekdworak, that's your problem09:37
iptablekdworak, as I said, the command works. why on earth are you putting it in ``?09:37
kdworakiptable: i thought u had to use those for multiple commands09:37

iptablekdworak, no. you use ``, if you want to execute that first and then execcute the OUTPUT of it09:37
kdworakiptable: ahh that makes sense09:38
iptablekdworak, so you were ending up executing your command and then trying to execute the output of it (which was 2.0G, and that command doesn't exist)09:38
kdworakiptable: let me try and get back to u09:38
kdworakiptable: makes sense!09:38
iptablekdworak, you would only use `` to save result to variable. e.g. SIZE=`command`09:38

usr13_not "to to here"15:02
luftusr13_: how would the guest machine be listening outside the host's network? it's in NAT mode15:03

usr13_luft: Should be bridged15:04
=== firefly_ is now known as firefly_dk
=== andrewjs18_ is now known as andrewjs18
luftbridged requires a lot more changes of the host server, which I would prefer not to do since I'm not too familiar with it15:04
=== bazhang_ is now known as bazhang
usr13_luft: I don't know that it really requires a lot more changes, but to my way of thinking, that's what you need, because if it were bridged, the guest would be listening independly to the outside.15:05
usr13_luft: And then the router would be forwarding a port to it.15:06
usr13_luft: Right?15:06
luftusr13_: that's problem #2, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it15:07
usr13_luft: Looks like you're already on that bridge ;015:07
luftusr13_: the host machine already has an apache2 server bound to 8015:08
luftright now I'm just trying to get the vm's apache accessible from the host's IP address15:08
lufton the host15:08
usr13_luft: Ok, then, I'm a bit confused as to why you would have 2 servers running on the same network?15:09
luftthen I'll open the port when I'm happy15:09
usr13_luft: Why two web-servers?15:09
luftusr13_: host machine's apache2 is the production server, vm is test server15:09
usr13_luft: If it is the test server, why does it need outside access?15:10
luftjust so my lab members can test it easily instead of downloading and installing libvirtd etc etc15:10
usr13_luft: Ok15:11
usr13_luft: And lab members are on the other side of the same router.  Right?15:11
usr13_luft: In that case, you should probably have an alias on another IP for it.15:12
usr13_luft: So instead of just a different port, use a different IP address.15:13
usr13_luft: Ok?15:13
luftusr13_: I don't know if I have enough control over the network at the moment to perform such a change15:14
usr13_luft: You don't have access to another IP address?15:14
usr13_luft: ...because that's all you need, is one more IP address.  Right?15:15
luftusr13_: wouldn't that alias have to be added to another machine?15:16
usr13_luft: Well, the way you are doing it now, you could just add it to the host, and then forward it's port 80 traffic as you are tryint to do now, (only much simplier). Right?15:17
usr13_luft: At any rate, just using another IP address is the way to go.15:17
luftwhere would I add the alias?15:18
usr13_luft: Well, it's up to you, but if what you say is true, that the host is dong nat to the VM guest, then do it on the host, eth0:015:18
sidiHi. I'm currently looking at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_privilege_authorization_features and it seems to suggest that on *buntu systems, when an admin requires privilege escalation to root to perform an admin task, their password is asked instead of the root password. I seem to recall *buntu does not necessarily have a root password. Could anybody confirm whether it is indeed the user's password being asked?15:19
usr13_luft: Do you have an IP?15:19
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo15:19
cfhowlettsidi, sudoers have a password.  if you're doing a privileged task, the sudo password will be requested15:19
luftusr13_: I have a static ip assigned to eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces15:19
sidicfhowlett, thanks. do you know if there's any documentation why this is considered a better practice than a root password?15:20
cfhowlettsidi, I know there is documentation/justification somewhere - can't advise further.  sorry.15:21

usr13_luft: (But what I just suggested was to leave it as you have it, (in nat mode), and create an alias on the host for the other webserver, and use iptables rule to forward the alias IP's port 80 traffic to the already existing guest interface.)15:37

Indy_A couple years ago (or, when Unity first made it into Ubuntu) I stopped using Ubuntu and switched back to windows after 3 years of linux use... Unity had some hideous graphical and usability bugs15:54
Indy_where i couldnt find solution, nor google or irc, forums etc15:54
Indy_i m gonna try with the new LTS... lets hope i dont get failed again :/15:54
ActionParsnipIndy_: you dont have to use Unity......15:54
brunoaisdoes anyone know how can I get the list of files a process has tried to open so far and failed to open?15:54
usr13_Indy_: Why didn't you try another Desktop Environmnent?15:54
brunoaisif it is impossible, is there a way to attach a listener to such thing to a program to which I can't start directly?15:55
tmmunqyeah... i dont... i tried for a couple weeks but was constantly running into problems.15:55
Indy_ActionParsnip: ok15:55
ActionParsnipIndy_: If you dont like Unity, don't use it, use a different shell like Gnome-shell. Or you can switch entirely to KDE, XFCE, LXDE and so on.15:55
brunoais(e.g. this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/191964/how-do-i-know-which-file-a-program-is-trying-to-access  does not work for me)15:55
ActionParsnipIndy_: is your dislike of Unity why you switch from Ubuntu?15:55
Indy_not dislike15:55
usr13_Indy_: If you did not like Unity, there was xfce lxde kde etc. etc.15:55
Indy_unusability in my case back then15:55
Indy_there were some serious bugs15:55
ActionParsnipIndy_: thats fine. Again, you dont have to use Unity15:55
Indy_anyway, all I wanted to say15:56
ActionParsnipIndy_: so why didnt you just switch session?15:56
MonkeyDustIndy_  if you don't like unity, don't use it... install and use something else15:56
ActionParsnipIndy_: is that seriously your thought process...?15:56
Indy_was I really wanted the whole process to be smooth and seamless, not for me, I could find a solution, but for the end user15:56
ActionParsnipIndy_: it is, install a new desktop, log off, log in to the new. Done15:56
MonkeyDustIndy_  http://i.imgur.com/3N5f6.jpg15:57
Indy_how much point is there for my grandma to use ubuntu if she has to switch from unity to another cause of unusability? shouldnt she just press the button and everything works?15:57
Indy_while the competition (windows, mac) is what it is15:57
ActionParsnipIndy_: the session per user is remembered, so she'll just log in and get the sesison she used last15:57
MonkeyDustIndy_  logout, switch, login, that's all there's to it15:57
ActionParsnipIndy_: each user can use a different desktop if you want15:57
usr13_Indy_: You find something you like and stick with it.15:58
ActionParsnipIndy_: if you want a windowsy feel, instal kubuntu, it uses KDE instead of Gnome15:58
Indy_no i dont want a windowsy feel i like gnome15:58
Indy_i didnt say that for myself i said it for all potential end users15:58
ActionParsnipIndy_: then install Cinammon, its in the default repos15:58
usr13_Indy_: If you like gnome use it, (or xfce)15:59
usr13_Indy_: Or yea, Cinammon15:59
Indy_and as i said, it wasn't a matter of likeness etc, there were some plain, heavy usability bugs15:59
ActionParsnipIndy_: the OS is very customisable, its like switching back to Windows because Firefox is the default web browser and you perfer Chrome15:59
Indy_and as i recall it wasn't as simple as "swicth DE option, logoff then login" cause that process had some bugs too15:59
ActionParsnipIndy_: the desktop is as changable as a web browser15:59
Indy_i am talking about 3-4 versions ago16:00
Indy_when unity first made it in16:00
ActionParsnipIndy_: its been like this since day 016:00
Indy_all I am saying is I really hope those bold bugs are absent now16:00
ActionParsnipIndy_: this is linux, where choice is champion16:00
trijntjeIndy_: the best way to help other users is to file bugs when you encounter problems, not complain about them 2 years later16:00
usr13_Indy_: I think that the point we are trying to make is that this is not a cookie-cutter OS, there are *many* options.16:00
Indy_trijntje: my smartass friend i did and did and did by bug report grew white beard16:00
ActionParsnipIndy_: so can you see why switching back to windows, burely due to a dislike of Unity is quite hilarious16:01
Indy_i didnt do it cause of that (only)16:01
Indy_and i didnt exactly "switch"16:02
usr13_Indy_: What *exactly* did you do?16:02
Indy_i only had ubuntu on disk, and that (plus) some other things) made me dual boot with windows16:02
Indy_and the sad part is, that windows seemed much more seamless to use, without all those accessibility and usability bugs, my ubuntu installation was facing at that time16:02
Indy_and I am very much worried that if i was (subconsciously) discouraged like this16:03
Indy_imagine about end user16:03
usr13_Indy_: Did you look at the link that MonkeyDust sent you?  ( http://i.imgur.com/3N5f6.jpg  )16:03
Indy_you dont get my point guys16:03
Indy_I am just expressing my worry here16:03
Indy_that me, who i love linux open source etc, having the choice of dual boot, made me over time and time and time16:04
Indy_to use windows more --> to 100% :/16:04

usr13_!root | abaday16:11
ubottuabaday: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo16:11

MonkeyDustabaday  while in lightdm menu, hit ctrl alt F1 ... or is that not what you mean?16:11
usr13_!password | abaday16:11
ubottuabaday: Forgot your password? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword What's the root password? See !sudo. Don't see *** in password prompts? That's normal. Sudo doesn't ask for your password? It remembers you for several minutes. Please use strong passwords, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/StrongPasswords16:11

iptableSpudguy, so you can access LAN but not WAN from your machine. It's either 1. IPv6 weirdness, or 2. some kind of MAC/IP filtering you got enabled o nthe router17:05

SpudguyNot the router, but yes Ubuntu. I figure the router doesn't need reloading as I can get a connection17:09
iptableSpudguy, how about "the router software is so bad it has stopped routing new machines to internet"?17:10

GeekDudeat least between me and a certain site17:21
iptablespudguy, so, start playing with router settings. looks like 1. maybe authentication method not supported on ubuntu, 2. some kind of blocking/filtering on WiFi, 3. some kind of network isolation on WiFi, 4. IPv6 hell17:21

Spudguy1However, I'm seeing this from my ubuntu, as I'm on the router config page using it17:45
usr13_Spudguy1: I wonder if it could be an IP address conflict.  If you have a MS Windows and a Linux machine on the same IP, the Linux one will give up and quit.17:45
usr13_Spudguy1: You might try a different IP address.17:46
usr13_Spudguy1: You can see your mac adress there, right?17:46
iptableSpudguy1, obviously, there is WiFi issue between your router and ubuntu. and it looks like your router doesn't like the ubuntu. could be the channels, 5Ghz vs 2.4Ghz, or some network isolation settings "most likely", or IPv6 vwhich you didn't disable still, etc.17:46
usr13_Spudguy1: Another thing you could try is spoofing the mac address to something else.17:46
iptableSpudguy1, as stated, reset router to factory defaults and try again. it's a cheap router issue.17:47

onefoxlmat yes i the first place,  the big picture problem is that i have software who can only give me serial and raw output but the usb driver don't except this ... i can't print link echo "test" > /dev/usb/lp018:37
xdgfedrghi, please can anyone confirm, that this link works? http://releases.ubuntu.com/13.10/ubuntu-13.10-desktop-amd64.iso.torrent download does not start to me, so i need to confirm its a problem on my end of the line18:37
SpudguyYeah, just learned about Unity bookmarks. Now I just wish I was getting more than 160kbs on my transfers haha18:37
lmatonefox: Do you have any way to print to the printer ? (lpr?)18:37
SpudguyI think that's a server issue though, it's always slow in the US but great in the UK.18:37
lmatonefox: Oh, I don't think you're supposed to be able to do that!18:38
lmatonefox: You need to    lpr -P printername  (I don't know the format of printername, perhaps /dev/usb/lp0 would work ?)18:38
onefoxlmat i can print with lpr -p NAME FILE18:38
lmatonefox: Oh. Sounds like you're set? ^_^18:38
snek@xdgfedrg testing torrent now18:38
snek@xdgfedrg works just fine, coming in right away at 7MB/s18:38
xdgfedrgsnek: thx18:39
lmatonefox: If you really like '<' or '|', you could     lpr -P printername < file; or   cat file | lpr -P printername   :D18:39
onefoxlmat that worked but the software can only print to /dev/usb/lp0 or COM1 COM3 LPT118:39

SpudguyThere's a little email icon in the top bar, clicking it just says "Avaliable" and shit like that, how can I either remove this or have it notify me of Gmail emails?18:40
lmatonefox: OOOOHHH....18:40
onefoxlmat so i cant decide where the software stream goes but it has to go to lpr i think ...18:40
lmatonefox: So, what if you put a symlink at /dev/usb/lp0 ? (don't try it yet!)18:40
lmatonefox: Could you convince the software to go to /dev/usb/lp1 ? ^_^18:41
onefoxlmat my first try would it be to caputre the output from the software in a file and than print that file with lpr18:41
onefoxlmat sure18:41
lmatonefox: I'm guessing the software expects a device file to be there. Even if you18:41
lmatonefox: Yeah, that's probably the right way to go ^_^ Okay, back to where you started.18:41
lmatonefox: So, you need to put a PDF printer at  /dev/usb/lp018:42
onefoxlmat on dev usb lp0 is the real printer ^ i have /dev/usb where i can send the raw data from the software to18:42
lmatonefox: So if we were to install a pdf printer to  /dev/usb/lp1, this would take care of you ?18:43
onefoxlmat dev/usb/lp1 is free i mean lp0 is the printer18:43

mao2Is there a way for me to add a new disk to my system and for it to appear as logically part of the same partition?18:53
Ontologicalnetameta__: lsb_release -a18:53
bekksmao2: No. You can use LVM.18:53
netameta__Thanks ontological18:53
bekksowlbread: Nope.18:53
netameta__Both helped18:53
n0x_42UUID=XXXX / ext4 defaults,acl errors=remount-ro 0 118:53
Mic_Kingi get a boot failure message on start up with the message insert system disk and press enter18:54
n0x_42I added defualts,acl to the original file.18:54
mao2bekks: does LVM work if one disk is already in use? It's a home media server, and I want to extend the space18:54
bekksn0x_42: There is a , missing after acl18:54
bekksmao2: LVM only works for that usecase if you are already using LVM.18:54
bekksn0x_42: The guid told you to add "acl" to the options, not to add "defaults,acl " before errors=remount-ro18:55
Ontologicalmao2: You need to de-activate LVM before adding a PV to it.18:55
mao2bekks: I'm already using LVM for full disk encryption (per the install disk). I should be able to "extend" the LVM to the new disk?18:56
Ontologicalmao2: Using the recovery boot option is handy for this, as it shouldn't mount your LVMs18:56
bekksmao2: I never dealt with encrypted LVM, sorry.18:56
n0x_42Ok, the example was throwing me off, thanks.18:56
Ontologicalmao2: Yes, that's the point, but not necessarily while the LVM is live.  Have you seen system-config-lvm package?18:56
Ontologicalmao2: But, might I recommend you have to LVM's?  One for your system and a separate one for data18:57
OntologicalThat way, you can easily modify the media LVM by simply unmounting all of the volumes18:57
Ontologicalyou have two LVMs*18:57
=== vnazarenko is now known as codeberry
Ontologicallvm_system w. lvm_system_crypt and lvm_media with lvm_media_crypt.  make sense, mao2 ?18:58
Ontologicalmao2: I recommend the splitting of your LVMs.  It will allow you to use system-config-lvm, which will really make LVM easier for you.18:59
mao2Ontological: So resizing the one LVM, and then putting the other half of this disk (with the data) on the new LVM?18:59
=== marlinc_ is now known as Marlinc
OntologicalIf the remaining data is large enough to make it worthwhile, yes.  Otherwise, It'd probably best to keep that one drive entirely your system drive.  I say this because in the future, you can then remove the media lvm hdds with much ease, but you might not need that capability.19:00
Ontologicalmao2: ^19:01

gmachine_24greetings earthlings. I elected to encrypt my home folder on a recent ubuntu install. I assume all sub-folders and files will be encrypted as well. Is this true?19:02
OntologicalBut, mao2, you're more than welcome to do what you said, if that's what makes the most sense to you19:02
Ontologicalgmachine_24: /home/USERNAME is encrypted recursively for the USERNAME, yes.19:02
mao2Ontological: Hm, good point. So I should create a new LVM on the new PV, and then rsync over the data from LVM1 to LVM219:02
OntologicalYou can rsync or use dd (if you're brave and want to do it how people would probably recommend)19:03
Ontologicalmao2: ^19:03
mustmodifyWhen I use ssh, sometimes server names are autocompleted. Sometimes they are not. Why?19:03
Voyageis it possible to make my /home encrypted and other sudoers cant get into it. BUT the applications can (like apache and other s. e.g apache may want to look for web pages in my /home)19:03
Ontologicalmustmodify: Because you have things in your ~/.ssh/config file19:03
mao2Ontological: does dd work at the file level? I only want to move some of the LVM19:03
Ontologicaldd would not allow you to copy files, only.  It would be used to copy an entire partition or entire drive onto another device19:04
tmmunqVoyage: that user would always need to be logged in so the files are decrypted19:04
mao2Ontological: ok, thanks19:04
mustmodifyOntological: wc -l ~/.ssh/config wc: /home/jw/.ssh/config: No such file or directory19:04
Ontologicalbut you could then expand that partition on the new drive, mao219:04
gmachine_24Ontological: thanks........19:04
Ontologicalmao2: If you're familiar with rsync, you'll be at less of a chance of losing your data if you just use rsync19:04
Ontologicalmustmodify: Could it be ssh-agent, then?19:05
mao2Ontological: just not sure the fastest way to move my media files onto the new drive. I want to leave the rest of the data on the system lvm19:05

adamcunningtonHow can I integrate terminal into my desktop so that I can interact with it straight off my home screen? I've seen others do it, is it easy?19:09

Voyagebekks,  ok. I have amazon ec2. I can get in by a key that I got from the website. can I create another user that just can login by his password, rather than the key?19:11

gcbirzanCan someone explain to me why linux-image* doesn't recommend or suggest, at the very least, linux-image-extra*?19:12
Voyagebekks,  secondly, if the other user is a sudoer, and a dir in my /home is 0700 permissioned. can he , in any way, get into that dir?19:12
bekksVoyage: Sure.19:12
VoyageIf you have a full root account, you _cant _create a new user. ?19:12

Keanu73and where is the kernel command line19:24

adamcunningtonPici: yea20:29
adamcunningtonPici: does that change things?20:29
Piciadamcunnington: you should specify different options in either fstab or using a different mount command if this is temporary.20:30

wafflejockCaelum: not sure you can usually lspci to see the specific built-in hardware and then probe more on the particular parts and the issue you're encountering20:30
wafflejockCaelum: if it's both the keyboard and mouse though I kinda wonder if it's really X or something else locking up20:31
Piciadamcunnington: you'll want to append the dir_mode=0755,file_mode=0644 options onto that device's option line in /etc/fstab20:31
superkuhHi. Does anyone know of a guide to configuration of and compilation of the X stack (xorg-server most specifically) on Ubuntu?20:31
adamcunningtonPici: sorry, can you explain, i don't know what that means20:31
wafflejockCaelum: you can use a terminal Ctrl+Alt+F1 to see that keyboard continues to respond consistently to narrow it down some20:31
wafflejockCaelum: Ctrl+Alt+F7 to get back to X20:32
Bashing-omadamcunnington: Pici :: "/media/Seagate Expansion Drive" -> escape the spaces in the name ???20:32
adamcunningtonBashing-om: how?20:33
adamcunningtonPici: this command; [Device] [Mount Point] [File System Type] [Options]?20:33
Bashing-omadamcunnington: Best practice is not to use spaces to start with, else /040 (??) to deal with the space. In linux a space is a delimeter.20:34
Piciadamcunnington: This is a sample fstab line from a samba/cifs share  I have mounted on a server here: https://gist.github.com/bnrubin/10cb82d6954e1e3355c720:34
=== y4h0_ is now known as dinogreen_rex
adamcunningtonBashing-om: so i'm to type /040 every time there should be a space?20:35
wafflejocksuperkuh: you might be better off trying one of the devel channels https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList20:35
adamcunningtonPici: forgive me, is this a terminal command, or a line that goes in a file that is saved in etc/fstab.d/?20:35
Bashing-omadamcunnington: yeah - to best I recall, there are other menas to deal with the spaces, however.20:35
Piciadamcunnington: it is a modification you would need to make to /etc/fstab on the line for your device that is likely already there.20:35
Picipersonally I prefer creating mount points without any spaces20:36

wafflejockreaga: you can use Ctrl+L to change location in most of the GUI file explorers then navigate to ~20:37
usr13_adamcunnington: I use dashes instead of spaces in file names and directories, makes things easier in the long run. Like: Seagate-Expansion-Drive20:37
wafflejockreaga: ~ is a shortcut to your home folder for me /home/shaun/ you'll have write permissions there20:37
sudormrfso it looks like snort is being billed as an IPS and an IDS.  is this the recommended software package?20:38
adamcunningtonusr13_: i should probably just rename it to something decent anyway20:38
Piciadamcunnington: Can you pastebin the contents of your fstab? I can take a look and modify it so that it will do what you want.20:38
Bashing-om llutz Thanks for that - I avoid "spaces" personally, and have limited experience with "escaping" them .20:38
wafflejockreaga: if you want to know more about permissions check out, chmod, chown, and ls -al commands which let you modify permissions, change owner ship, and list folders/files with permission info20:38
usr13_adamcunnington: Yea, just rename it.  And I usually put my mount points in the /home/dir (just a little easier and /or more orderly to me)20:39
usr13_adamcunnington: pastebinit /etc/fstab  #And send us the URL20:39
adamcunningtonusr13_: can i just rename with mv?20:39
usr13_adamcunnington: Yes20:39
adamcunningtonusr13_: i haven't built /etc/fstab yet, i don't understand it20:39
usr13_adamcunnington: It has already ben built for you.  YOu only need to edit it and make any additions you want.20:40
llutzsudormrf: snort is GPL and in the repos, where did you see something about billing?20:40
geniiThe only usually confusing thing about fstab is the two numbers at the end20:40
usr13_adamcunnington: So show us what you have so far,  pastebinit /etc/fstab  #And send us the URL that gets gernerated.20:40

Picinot while mounted.20:41
adamcunningtonhow do i unmount it?20:42
sudormrfadamcunnington: umount20:42
adamcunningtonneed sudo?20:42
usr13_adamcunnington: And, if it is mounted now, not a good idea to mv it.20:42
sudormrfadamcunnington: maybe.20:42
adamcunningtoneugh command unmount not found20:42
wafflejockno n20:42
wafflejockit's goofy20:42
Piciadamcunnington: its umount, not unmount20:42
adamcunningtonoh, weird20:42
adamcunningtonthat's stupid20:42
usr13_adamcunnington: umount /media/Seagate\ Expansion\ Drive20:43
sudormrfnot stupid.20:43
adamcunningtonunmount is a word, umount isn't!20:43
wafflejockgotta keep you on your toes I guess... dunno perhaps there's a good reason20:43
usr13_adamcunnington: Well, you can change it if you want, we will leave it as it is.20:43
sudormrfadamcunnington: that is true, but there are reasons that these things were done.20:43
adamcunningtonbut once it's unmounted, i can no longer change name because it doesn't exist?!20:44
sudormrfadamcunnington: you can change the mount point.20:44
wafflejockadamcunnington: yeah you just want to unmount it then make a new folder to mount it20:44
wafflejockwith no spaces in it20:44
usr13_adamcunnington: Correct, (another reason to do mount points in /home/dir)20:44
adamcunningtoni come from windows so this idea of choosing where to mount something is totally new20:44
wafflejockthat'll make your life easier we thinks20:45
adamcunningtonso is it normal in linux to mount an external device within home/ ?20:45
usr13_adamcunnington: Any where you want, (it is up to you).20:45
wafflejockeh it depends on your use case, for what you're doing it makes sense20:45
wafflejockmost of the time I'm not dealing with mounting and unmounting things20:45
wafflejockbut occasionally it's helpful to setup a few things manually like mapping network drives20:45
adamcunningtonis it ok to be just inside /home/ or should it be deeper?20:45
usr13_adamcunnington: I just gave you a suggestion, (it is *my* preference).20:46
usr13_adamcunnington: /home/user-name-here20:46
sudormrfadamcunnington: whatever works for you.  you can literally mount it wherever you want to.20:46
adamcunningtonusr13_: oh by dir, you meant the name of it?20:46
Piciadamcunnington: it is normal to put it into /media/ usr13_ has his own preferences.20:46
sudormrfwhat Pici said20:46
usr13_/home/adamcunnington  (where adamcunnington is really your user name and the name of your directory in /home/20:47
OerHeksavoid mounting in /dev/urandom/20:47
adamcunningtonPici: ok i'll leave it in media20:47
adamcunningtonso to mount it, the first argument to the command is the filesystem, how do i know what that is?20:47
wafflejockadamcunnington: fstab is just a file that just helps to "automate" the process of doing the mount too just FYI so it's helpful if you want the config to stick20:47
adamcunningtonwafflejock: well i think that is my end goal, so can i just add a line to that?20:48
wafflejockadamcunnington: fdisk -l I believe20:48
usr13_Pici: I shouldn't have said anything.  I'm sorry.  I guess I complicated the heck out of things.  But in the long run, he may learn a bit more from it.20:48
sudormrfadamcunnington: let me provide you with a link20:48
adamcunningtonwafflejock: do i create my own file in etc/fstab.d/ if so what do i name it?20:48
Bashing-omadamcunnington: To confuse the mount issue more: https://help.ubuntu.comunity/Mount/ ...20:48
usr13_adamcunnington: just edit the oritinal one.20:48
wafflejockadamcunnington: sorry not too familiar with the details there, I think it used to just be one file, I haven't seen the folder version20:49
adamcunningtonhmm, didn't see a file in there, let me check again20:49
wafflejockseems in newer Ubuntu things are being split up more and more into folders though so that might be true20:49
sudormrfadamcunnington: http://kwilson.me.uk/blog/force-your-raspberry-pi-to-mount-an-external-usb-drive-every-time-it-starts-up/20:49
adamcunningtonyea, no files in there20:49
wafflejocklike X is split up a lot more now too I believe, and Apache config files are the same20:49
sudormrfthat is for debian, but in this case it will work for you20:49
sudormrfyou will need to know the file system your drive is formatted in20:49
adamcunningtonoh fstab file20:50
Piciadamcunnington: like I said earlier, you should already have an entry for this in /etc/fstab20:50
adamcunningtoni was looking at fstab.d20:50
wafflejockah k so still have the fstab file... yeah not familiar with fstab.d20:50
adamcunningtonprobably this one mv /media/Seagate\ Expansion\ Drive /media/ADAM-Media20:51
adamcunnington/dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto,exec,utf820:51
Picino, that looks like a floppy drive to me.20:51

sudormrfadamcunnington: also do this pastebinit df20:53
adamcunningtonah, i will install pastebinit20:53
wafflejockadamcunnington: well there is a bit of complication in the fstab files too now, you can either specify with a device name like /dev/sda2 or you can specify with a UUID or block id, which you can get like blkid /dev/sda220:53
wafflejockeverything above is good though20:54
sudormrfadamcunnington: you shouldn't need to install it20:54
sudormrfadamcunnington: if you don't have a floppy drive you can comment out that line.20:54
adamcunningtonsudormrf: says i need to20:54
c_smithadamcunnington, /dev/seagate wouldn't actually appear in UNIX and UNIX-like systems, they're all names like /dev/sdxZ or /dev/sr0, /dev/cd0 /dev/loop0, etc20:54
adamcunningtonthis is complex! will get my head around it soon hopefully20:54
sudormrfadamcunnington: which version of ubuntu is this?20:54
sudormrfadamcunnington: this is how we learn20:54
sudormrfdon't get discouraged20:54
adamcunningtonok so just to recap my understanding, etc/fstab contains information about where stuff mounts, this is auto #-populated whenever you connect a new periphery / boot thing?20:55
sudormrfAFAIK pastebinit should be included in 12.04, but if it isn't just install it20:55
c_smithadamcunnington, the device names starts making more sense the more you work with them. :)20:55
wafflejockyeah mounting is a bit confusing on first go20:55
adamcunningtonwill my seagate expansion drive definitely be in that file, in which case i can just modify it or will i need to add it?20:55
sudormrfalso, take a look at that link I provided, that should help you.20:55
adamcunningtonsudormrf: helped a bit - trouble is when you're new, the docs are detailed but not aimed at people who are knew, they presuppose understanding20:56
sudormrfadamcunnington: unless you added the seagate drive to the fstab yourself it won't show up in there.20:56
c_smithadamcunnington, it'll be in a special device file that you need to mount.20:56
adamcunningtonat least a certain level which i'm on the borderline of so i mostly find these docs unhelpful at this stage but i know with time, it'll come20:56
adamcunningtonsudormrf: ok so do i need to find out exactly what it is called first?20:56
sudormrfadamcunnington: type df in a terminal window20:56
sudormrfadamcunnington: or sudo fdisk -l20:57
adamcunningtonsudo fdisk -l was far too verbose, df seems nice ;)20:57
usr13_adamcunnington: sudo fdisk -l |pastebinit   #and send URL20:57
sudormrfadamcunnington: pastebin the output of sudo fdisk -l.  it doesn't look like your drive is connected right now, but just to be sure.20:58
adamcunningtoni don't think df listed it20:58

sudormrfwafflejock: forgot he unmounted :O20:58
adamcunningtonwhat pastebinit command?20:58
wafflejockthe man command is your friend here too :) I couldn't remember what df was for the life of me20:59

mk2markI'm trying to turn off frequency scaling on ubuntu21:17
bekksadamcunnington: ntfs-3g is a userland application that enables read/write access onto a NTFS filesystem.21:17
sudormrfadamcunnington: you can if you want.  in the case of USB devices I am not sure if it is any better than using /dev/sdf1.  It wouldn't hurt though.  if you want to use the UUID instead, replace /dev/sdf1 with UUID= and the UUID of your device.21:18

earthianHello, I am having an error when starting slapd (Open LDAP daemon v2.4.31): "ldif_read_file: Permission denied for "/etc/ldap/slapd.d/cn=config.ldif". The owner of that file is openldap and permission is 664 but still permission denied. Also I copied the entire config and database from a working server (v2.4.23). Any ideas what could be wrong there with the permissions?21:39

adacMy new samsung printer has been detected via network. I added the printer but when I want to print then at the first momennt it seems that the printer has been contacted, but nothing is printed out. How can I debug this?22:12
Jordan_Uadamcunnington: What OS is on the host, and what OS is in the guest?22:14
sudormrfadamcunnington: NAT? Bridged? Host only? is the VM on the same machine as the host?22:15
tgm4883NEone, the version of PHP in 12.04 is 5.3. That means you will get fixes for it (which I'm assuming is stuff inside 5.3.x). You won't see a minor version upgrade until the next ubuntu release. IIRC, This is because minor versions of PHP have a tendency to have incompatibilities with stuff written against other versions22:15
tdannecyadac: Are you able to send a test print?22:15
NEonetgm4883: Can - and should I - upgrade php manually?22:16
tgm4883NEone, why would you want to do that?22:16
adactdannecy, nope. it says "job submitted as job id 120" and the printer seems to get a signal, but nothing gets printed out actually. I can also see no jobs on the printer queue22:17
NEoneI use that Ubuntu as a webserver and the developer is using a IDE and a framework which is optimized for code in php 5.422:17
Bashing-omNEone: I am not on 12.04 ATT, so can not confirm the version. Generally versions are frozen within a relesse to preserve stability. One Might upgrade an app through a PPA - for an experienced user as might cause breakage of your system.22:17
adamcunningtonJordan_U: ubuntu 12.04 host, win7 guest22:17
adamcunningtonsudormrf: not sure what the first 3 questions mean but yes the vm is on the same machine22:18
tgm4883NEone, personally, if it works on 5.3 then I would leave the OS at that.22:18
tdannecyadac: Pull up http://localhost:631/ in your browser and try to config the printer from there. Also, printers are notorious for being difficult. I'd suggest restarting that printer a few times for good luck.22:18

adamcunningtonno way of me taking advantage of the fact that it's on the same machine so avoiding an internet network altogether22:30
mark4guess nobody here understands the question.. or doesnt know the answer ?22:30
tgm4883adamcunnington, "bridged adapter" basically makes it look like another machine on your network. eg. it will get it's IP address from your router/dhcp server22:30
tgm4883adamcunnington, it doesn't look like it if you want to use the shared folders feature22:31

unicornjedijiomi, you could use gimp and edit the metadata there22:40

adactdannecy, can this be done also via cups webinterface?22:50

tdannecyadac: You should be able to. I can't walk you through the specifics (because I don't have a printer installed on this unit), but the options should be relatively the same. You're looking to switch the drivers to "postscript-samsung" and you should be good to go.22:52

bazhang!ufw | potential23:59
ubottupotential: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | GUI frontends such as Gufw also exist. | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo23:59
