crouton-userHi. Would anyone be willing to help a keen to learn novice with an external ext4 hard drive partition that doesn't have exec privilidges? Running crouton Ubuntu 13.10 on a Chromebook.

xparanoikzubuntu do you know if your system runs on UEFI or legacy BIOS ?00:44
zubuntuhow can i find out xparanoik ?00:44
zubuntuit has BIOS for sure00:44
zubuntuit s windows laptop00:45
xparanoikwhen you boot your computer you should be able to see it, if it is a pretty new laptop then it's probably UEFI00:45
zubuntuit s about 3-4 yrs old laptop00:45

xparanoikthat can happen when you install ubuntu and windows00:47

xparanoikit didn't? hmm00:47
xparanoikthat's what I was going to suggest you do00:47
zubuntuit suppose to show me menu after repair finished and restarted but it s still same00:48
xparanoikcheck your bios and see if the ubuntu option is there (in case it's UEFI)00:48
zubuntuxparanoik:  there s no ubuntu  option in bios00:49
zubuntulet me try this boot repair again00:50
xparanoikboot-repair has a couple of options, sometimes when there is an error you can try different options00:51
zubuntuwhich option to apply?00:51
xparanoikbut if it's a legacy bios, then just installing grub on the MBR should suffice00:51
zubunturecommended repair or advanced00:51
zubuntuit said installing grub while installing ubuntu already00:52
xparanoiklater on there are a couple of options (i haven't done this in months)00:52

amigamagicI would like to say that the "deadline" I/O scheduling algorithm is a very bad choice for a standard ubuntu desktop distro00:56
zubuntu1st boot device was set to usb to install windows and ubuntu00:56

amigamagicon my system, the responsiveness of the gui (ubuntu 12.04 LTS) was very VERY bad when there were consistent hard disk operations...00:58
amigamagicsorry, the gui is gnome classic, the system is Ubuntu 12.04 LTS00:58
haThey guys in the terminal, this is my name montre@linx:~/home$00:58
haTif i want to change the linx part00:59
haThow do i do it ?00:59
xparanoikhaT http://askubuntu.com/questions/87665/how-do-i-change-the-hostname-without-a-restart00:59
amigamagicI solved the problem by changing the I/O scheduling to the classic CFQ... Now is near responsive as a Windows machine00:59
haTohh ok01:00
amigamagicI think "deadline" scheduling algorithm is best suited for very fast SSD hard drive or for database servers01:00
haTso that's the host name01:00
amigamagicbut it shouldn't be the "default" scheduling of a normal ubuntu distro!01:00
zubuntuxparanoik:  are u there ?01:00
zubuntuit works now :)01:01
zubuntuGRUB bootloader menu01:01

Sir_LetoAnyone familiar with boot-repair01:09
amigamagicI tried to install cinnamon after ubuntu, but it was very bad... Many icons and various things missing01:09
amigamagic(or maybe it was mate desktop, I don't remember)01:10
Beldaramigamagic, Which ubuntu release was this?01:10
lorenzowell I'll try, the night is long01:10
amigamagicBeldar ubuntu is 12.04 LTS01:10
amigamagicnow I remember: it was cinnamon01:11
amigamagicafter installing it from an ubuntu 12.04 LTS reverted to gnome classic, the cinnamon start menu was very bad01:11
amigamagicwith many icons missing01:11
Beldaramigamagic, Neither mate nor cinnamon were in the 12.04 repos, those were *PPA's not supported here, and it does not help to make random this didn't work minus a context.01:12
amigamagicBeldar, it wasn't a critic at ubuntu01:13
=== CyberJacob is now known as CyberJacob|Away
amigamagicit was only an observation from my experience on installing it01:14
Beldaramigamagic, No biggie, however my point is, this is support not your blog.01:14
amigamagicthe critic that I address to ubuntu 12.04 LTS is the 'deadline' I/O scheduler01:14
amigamagicis very bad for a desktop machine with a traditional hard disk (not SSD)01:15
=== tech is now known as Guest76695
amigamagictry to revert to a more classic CFQ scheduler and you will see BIG improvements in responsiveness when you copy some big file or watch some videos01:16
lorenzoamigamagic, where did you learn those things?01:16
lorenzoI barely know what a scheduler does01:16
amigamagiclorenzo, there was a time when I modded the linux scheduler01:17
amigamagicfor an exam at my university01:17
amigamagicbut it was MANY years ago01:17
amigamagicnow I'm doing all my research using google and experimenting myself... :D01:18
nreynolds_anyone here have some experience with ubuntu studio 13.10,  the ubuntu studio channel is dead01:18
lorenzonice :D01:18
amigamagiclorenzo, the problem is that I couldn't accept that a Windows machine could be MUCH faster than a Linux machine01:19
amigamagicat basic tasks01:19
amigamagiclike copy a big file01:19
Beldarnreynolds_, There is this channel too, #opensourcemusicians01:20
amigamagicso, I googled, tried messing with system options and configuration files, and I found that the default I/O scheduler of Ubuntu 12.04 was very bad for a desktop distro01:20
Laslo7Is there a better RDP client than remmina?01:21
lorenzoLaslo7, try vinagra01:21
nreynolds_is this the support channel for ubuntu?01:21
amigamagicI use X2GO as server and client01:21
lorenzoLaslo7, * vinagre01:21
amigamagicvery fast01:21
lorenzoremmina works fine here, besides from some issues with Windows Server 201201:22
nreynolds_Beldar, I have more of a ubuntu question then a A/V based question01:22
Laslo7I have been using remmina.  I just reinstalled and thought to see if there were better options01:23
lorenzoLaslo7, if it works, stick with it01:23
lorenzoI use it on a daily basis and it's quite nice once you set it up with favourites01:23
Laslo7Thanks for the info.01:24
nreynolds_I installed ubuntu studio 13.10 to take advantage of the tweaks already in place, however I want to use Unity as my daily DE, I've run into some problems01:24
amigamagicif by chance someone want to check what I/O scheduler your ubuntu uses, you can do the following: "cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler"01:25
nreynolds_Anyone else tried installing unity under Ubuntu Studio 13.1001:25
Laslo7amigamagic: noop [deadline] cfq01:27
amigamagicLaslo7 so you use 'deadline' scheduler01:27
amigamagicthat is very bad for normal hdd01:27
amigamagicif you have an SSD drive, then it's good01:28
Laslo7I am running a SSD01:28
RefinersFireI am having an odd problem with Ubuntu Server 12.04... I can't wget or ping ANY .org addresses... I have tried .com and .net and they're okay, but NO .org will work... I get, "wget: unable to resolve host address `owncloud.org' " or whatever address I try.01:28
lorenzoRefinersFire, other machines working fine?01:30
amigamagicI think Ubuntu distros should stick with a solid cfq scheduler. Maybe it should automatically change to a deadline scheduler only if the system detects you are using an ssd drive.01:31
lorenzoRefinersFire, looks like a bad dns server to me01:31
lorenzotry adding or other (like opendns)01:32
lorenzoin your network config01:32
Laslo7The and are google's dns servers01:32
RefinersFireI will try lorenzo01:33
lorenzoLaslo7, that's why I said "or other"01:33
amigamagicif someone want to check "in realtime" (without reset your pc) if another I/O scheduler is better for your system, it's very easy: "echo cfq > /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler" and you will use cfq instead of deadline scheduler.01:34
amigamagicbut you should change /etc/default/grub too if you want to make the change permanent01:35
zubuntuagain me01:36
amigamagicwho are you?01:36
zubuntuamigamagic:  :p01:36

varunendragoogcheng, if you can boot into "Recovery mode", maybe a "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" could fix it for you. Just a guess.02:22

platypusActionParsnip, it is the same: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7150680/11:01
ActionParsnipplatypus: are there any bugs reported?11:02
ActionParsnipplatypus: you could use an addon to your web browser and download videos that way11:02
ActionParsnipplatypus: is your intention to rip the audio from the video once downloaded?11:03
cfhowlettplatypus, there are plenty of firefox plugins to download YT video11:04
ActionParsnipplatypus: do yu wnat only the audio, ultimately?11:04
platypusActionParsnip, I have the fantastic WinFF for audio, I do audios with it. I also have firefox addons for video, but not all of them worked somehow, and the one that works always gets stuck while doing audio (which I actually dont need for I have winFF as mentioned)11:05
ActionParsnipplatypus: why not just use this then: http://www.youtube-mp3.org/11:06
ActionParsnipplatypus: why reinvent the wheel....11:06
platypusActionParsnip, but this seems to be for mp3?11:06

emxi updated to ubuntu 13.10. now apache doesn't seem to include my configurations from /etc/apche2/sites-enabled11:07
red234324ActionParsnip, had a look at that link then opened FF about:config and created browser.cache.disk.parent_directory and set it to /tmp/firefox and tmp is already in RAM - so I think on reboot that should put ff cache into RAM - does that sound about right to you to?11:07
emxwhat can i do?11:07
ActionParsnipred234324: why do you need to reboot?11:07
red234324just assuming ActionParsnip11:08
ActionParsnipred234324: you will need a command to run at boot to recreate and chown the folder to your user. Contents in RAM are lost at reboot, including your subfolder11:08
platypusActionParsnip, but I have no problem ripping audios, as I said. the problem is my firefox addon downloads video and subsequently rips audio. however, the latter always jams the browser, when I dont even need it, as I can rip audio with WinFF if I want to.11:08
platypusin short, I need a video-only downloader.11:09
ActionParsnipplatypus: doesn't minitube do youtube downloads?11:09

miraj9093helllo ,  i am using 12.04 LTS. i have a zip file of some drivers .i want to install them is it possible to do installation with zip file?11:55
guest0292miraj9093:  depends what drivers you have for Windows or linux?  Windows drivers probably won't work unless they're network drivers to use with ndiswrapper.11:59

madridme haces una paja12:01
miraj9093guest0292: i mean want to install..12:01
DJonesmadrid: No thanks you12:02
guest0292miraj9093:  You will need to extract the drivers from the zip using an archiver or use wine to install them and find the .inf and .sys files.  Then install ndisgtk (sudo apt-get install ndisgtk) to actually install the driver .inf/.sys files.  This is the only way i'm familiar with.  Maybe an easier way...12:06
guest0292miraj9093:  Finally, run the network manager to activate your device.  Even then there's no guarantee the dongle will work as it's always best to use hardware compatible with linux drivers.12:08

I changed /etc/default/isc-dhcp-server to have eth4 in the interface item ( though there was no value there previously ). Trying to start the server via init or se14:33
cfhowlett[conrad], ask in #ubuntu-server?14:33
cyberalex4lifehello, is there a way to change each type of themes sepparetly with unity-tweak-tool?14:35

cfhowlettrabbel, ask15:12
techie123already have foresight linux installed as a virtual machine, or should I try to desktop ubuntu first?15:12
cfhowletttechie123, we have NOTHING to do with foresight ...15:13
rabbelcfhowlett: ok. I am currently busy with automating my ubuntu-server (precise) installation. I followed this (http://askubuntu.com/a/122506) tutorial. It works perfect if I test it on a virtual machine. But if I try the same on a bare metal machine, it suddenly does not work anymore.15:14

cfhowlettrabbel, yeah, that's a NICE challenge!  however you might want to take this #ubuntu-server.  I suspect someone there has already done what you're now attempting.15:15

DominciiHey folks, trying to install Windows from disk. When I try to run the disk from the GRUB menu it just skips the disk and boots into Ubuntu for some reason. The disk works fine on my laptop and PC that both already have Windows installed but it just isn't doing anything on my Ubuntu PC15:42

DominciiAnyone here who can help me with the Windows installation? I don't know why my disk drive isn't working on Ubuntu. Can I set it to automatically mount the disk drive? The drive is present in the Disk Utility selector but whenever I try to watch movies etc on there nothing happens. Presumably the problem is the disk drive not mounting the disks and stuff15:53
cfhowlettDomincii, you're installing windows INSIDE ubuntu?15:54
philinuxDomincii;~ or are you trying to share files on a win disk15:55
Dominciicfhowlett, Im trying to boot a windows install disk but when I try to run the installation iso from GRUB it just boots straight into Ubuntu, skipping the disk installation altogether.15:55
Dominciiphilinux that reply is to you too15:55
cfhowlettDomincii, you MUST specify to the machine bios that it boots the windows install disk.15:56
Dominciicfhowlett, how can I do that? I'm not great with computers15:56
LaykeHi. Is it possible to have two of my network interfaces up, but of which is connected to the internet, however, be able to specify which one I use to connect out? One of the interfaces is actually used for my LAN15:56
cfhowlettDomincii, during power on self test, a message will appear "to change boot options, hit F something"15:57
b3rz3rk3rDomincii, go into the BIOS and set the windows disk to be first boot device15:57
LaykeAnd I need to be able to connect to other systems on the same gateway, however, I don't want to actually use the ISP provided through that interface.15:57
Dominciicfhowlett, b3rz3rk3r I've already done that15:57
cfhowlettDomincii, I doubt it.  otherwise the drive would have  booted.15:57
b3rz3rk3rDomincii, then it is not set as bootable and your pc is defaulting to next device15:57
cfhowlettunless the drive itself has failed.  try this.  disable all drives EXCEPT the disk drive with windows.15:58
philinuxDomincii;~ is the win disk in a dvd player15:58
Dominciib3rz3rk3r cfhowlett, when I run the disk on my windows laptop it boots perfectly but when I do it from my Ubuntu PC it doesn't work15:58
Dominciiphilinux yes it is15:58
cfhowlettDomincii, you're confusing the issue.  during power on NEITHER OS is running.15:59
philinuxDomincii;~ to eliminate. try an ubuntu livd disk in the same dvd player16:00
philinuxDomincii;~ if that boots then dvd player ok16:00
Dominciicfhowlett when I open my BIOS options my number 1 boot option is the CD/DVD drive, when I save the changes the PC boots into Ubuntu, when I force a GRUB entry and try to boot from the disk that way it again boots into Ubuntu, when I try to press F11 to enter the BIOS boot menu and manually choose the disk again it boots into Ubuntu16:01
b3rz3rk3rDomincii, it sounds like you have burned an image to a physical disk and now it won't boot from it after BIOS. In which case you have not set the disk to be bootable.16:01
Dominciib3rz3rkr3r when I use the disk from my Windows laptop it creates the installation prompt, is there any way to check it's been installed correctly?16:02
cfhowlettDomincii, this is the original windows disk?16:02
b3rz3rk3rDomincii, Yes, it will show up with the files when you are in an OS, but computers won't be able to boot from it.16:02
b3rz3rk3rDomincii, have you tried to boot it in another machine?16:02
Dominciicfhowlett no its an iso I've manually burnt to the disk, b3rs3rk3r I've not, I'll do so now to check16:03
cfhowlettDomincii, test it in a different machine16:03
b3rz3rk3rDomincii, 99.9% chance you haven't set it as bootable. You need to re-read the guide you followed and make sure you get the bootflag set correctly16:03
gdoteofso i just went through getting a sytem set up, as root.  my intention was to then use .bash_history to 'document' what i did16:03
PlayerHey, I was wondering if I went ahead and upgraded to the 14.04 beta if I'd be able to keep that install when it's released.16:04
gdoteofbut .bash_history doesn't have most/any of what i have done this session16:04
gdoteofif i press up i can see all of my commands16:04
PlayerHey, I was wondering if I went ahead and upgraded to the 14.04 beta if I'd be able to keep that install when it's released.16:04
gdoteofwhat i'd like to do is dump all of those commands, basically everything i have done this session into a file16:04
Dominciib3rz3rk3r could you recommend a guide to create the installation CD from a windows computer? thats what im using to burn the iso to disk currently16:04
OerHeksgdoteof, sure, as root you don't want bash to log your private stuff16:04
gdoteofOerHeks: that makes sense.  i mean, if i look in there it does have some stuff.. ls \ cd \ apt-get install vim16:05
gdoteofbasically that's it16:05
gdoteofin any case, is there some way to extract what i have in my cached history into a file?16:05
cfhowlettDomincii, windows has a USB creation too as well as data cd tools.  ask #windows for details.  this is not an ubuntu problem16:05
Dominciicfhowlett thanks for your help and patience16:06
b3rz3rk3rDomincii, I can't, I haven't used it in many years.16:06

quebrehi all, writting from tablet coz cannot finish ubuntu instalation, the problem is: the installer went to the post-install, then my network died so the instalation hanged, i haave rebooted in hope the installer will resume where it hanged, grub load on boot but when i select to boot ubuntu, nothing happens. how can i resume the installer? please help....18:35
ActionParsnip[Gentoo]: ctrl + H I believe18:35
[Gentoo]ActionParsnip: ok :)18:35
omarActionParsnip, No problem. It seems like I managed to fix it. :)18:35
ArceyeActionParsnip, Thanks18:35

zen_monkeyHi, i am attempting to install precise via the mini iso and it hangs forever after choosing the country/mirror on a purple screen with a grey bar below... anyone knows what may be causing this? btw, the ISO sha1 it's ok.

[Gentoo]junaos_: just run the command ls -a .local/share/Trash/files18:37
Jordan_Uquebre: You can't "resume" an installation. You can only re-install over the partial installation, or manually perform all of the steps the installer didn't get to.18:37
ActionParsnipor CTRL + .18:37
junaos_nothing found18:37
[Gentoo]junaos_: ok18:38

junaos_Do you want to empty the trash before you unmount?18:38
junaos_n order to regain the free space on this volume the trash must be emptied. All trashed items on the volume will be permanently lost.18:38
[Gentoo]junaos_: what did you do?18:38
[Gentoo]that sounds like it18:38
Jordan_Uquebre: It depends on what things the installer didn't finish doing, and I don't know Ubuntu's installer well enough to tell you that even if I knew exactly where it stopped.18:39
junaos_clicked on unmount Drive C:18:39
[Gentoo]junaos_: probably all gone tbh18:39

UrlichI thought it was an issue with earlier packages but after DLing a more well know app I realized18:51

Jordan_UUrlich: What exactly are you downloading, and what do you expect to happen when you open the file (presumably by double clicking the file in Nautilus)?18:55

bekksiop__: the most easy way would be creating one virtual machine, and just clone it.20:12
iop__how to do that20:12
willwhyep - look at virtualbox.... or vagrant is pretty nice20:13
bekksiop__: Install virtualbox, create a virtual machine, configure it to your needs, and clone it.20:13
willwhit uses virtualbox and let's you have templates20:13
iop__no no i didt want like that20:13
willwhbut you don't really need vagrant, just make the image you want and clone it, like bekks says20:13

willwh(2) Run "sudo update-grub" to apply the new configuration.20:15
willwh(3) Reboot. A usable virtual terminal with a login prompt comes up automatically.20:15
bekksiop__: press ctrl alt f1 then.20:15
iop__ctrl+ alt + f120:15
willwhwhat I just pasted will start up tty1 instead of 720:15

=== Guest11850 is now known as olgac
jaapiofor example green is shown pink in this image http://ic.tweakimg.net/ext/i/1392816987.png20:22
Jordan_Ujaapio: Pictures showing up with the wrong color is generally an issue with ICC color profiles. I've only encountered it that bad with a monitor that reported completely bogus ICC information to the OS.20:22

jaapiowhich is not the case20:23
Jordan_Ujaapio: So you'll notice that you're *more* likely to see the issue on professionally made pictures, where color matters, as they'll actually have an ICC color profile rather than only having RGB values.20:23
mustmodifyHow do I concatenate to stdout-puts? like ... `tail -n1 file.csv` + `tail -n 200 file.csv | head -n 20`20:23
Jordan_Ujaapio: I expect that color profiles can be configured per-user. So figure out where they're stored and rename / reset them for the problematic user.20:25

bentSpaceIs there any point in wiping the hard drive before installing Ubuntu, if Windows is currently intsalled?20:31
JFranksHmmm... I'm using a crusty Intel desktop board with ICH7 and 4 disks in a RAID 5 .. the server boots off a spare single drive and I intend the RAID5 to be used for MySQL data.. When I do an fdisk -l  .. it lists all the disks in the array and then lists the array as some wacky long /dev/mapper/ style id followed by the volume name I picked for the disk array.. I assumed I wanted to format the array but I get the following error when I try it:20:32

beandogspjt: heh, that's actually the best place to start ... find an itch to scratch22:37
zeroRooterspjt, many things annoy me about ubuntu but i doubt i will be good enough to fix them22:37
spjtzeroRooter: You don't know until you try. Besides, you don't really have to know a language to fix bugs sometimes, if you know Java you'll probably be able to figure it out just from the context22:37

hwamokp66Hi, how do i access my site through FTP? I have been tinkering through Putty and SSH22:38
bekkshwamokp66: Install a FTP server.22:38
spjthwamokp66: You might just want to use sftp22:38
hillarybbekks: I cannot access even Synaptic package manager. It vibrates and disappear!!!22:38
hwamokp66spjt: is there a package i can use apt-get isntall for?22:38
spjthwamokp66: If you have ssh, you should have sftp already22:39
bekkshillary: Did you run another chmod -R command, accidentially?22:39
hwamokp66spjt: so i should use the ip of my server and the account info for my root user?22:39
bekks!root | hwamokp6622:39
ubottuhwamokp66: 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/RootSudo22:39
spjthwamokp66: It might not work for root. Try "sftp user@host" where user is the username and host is the hostname22:40
hwamokp66I want to use filezilla, is this possible?22:40
bekkshwamokp66: sure.22:40
hwamokp66what are the steps i need to do for that?22:40
bekksInstall it, start it.22:41
hillarybekks:yes i did i have seen. But this was on some files in usr/lib which i neede to write data to them22:41
hwamokp66i have filezilla, i know my ip adress, idk what i put in for he user and pass22:41
bekkshillary: As a user, you never need to do that. I suspect, you messed up even more.22:41
spjthwamokp66: your username and password on that machine22:41
hwamokp66spjt: so isnt htat my root account for the ssh? same info?22:42
tymatConclusion: Ubuntu still sucks.  Goodbye22:42
hillarybut when i do using su everything goes well.22:42
bekkshwamokp66: By default, there is no root account accesible using ftp or ssh.22:42
hwamokp66bekks: so how do i set up a ftp server? i have no cpanel. I'm running the server myself22:42
bekkshillary: su implies that you set a root password set as well. Do you have more desasters to tell us?22:42
bekkshwamokp66: you can use sftp which is already running.22:43
bekkshwamokp66: just use your username, your password and port 22 - in filezilla22:43
hwamokp66bekks: worsk great! thanks. the 22 is the ssh port?22:43
bekkshwamokp66: Yes.22:44
hillarybekks: yes i did set root password. Indeed i have messed up i can see.!!22:44
bekkshillary: I suggest a clean reinstallation of the entire system then.22:44
ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo22:45
hillaryyou mean i reinstall the ubuntu 12.04??22:45
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/RootSudo22:45
bekkshillary: Yes.22:45
hwamokp66is it normal to have /www/webiste.com?22:45
hillaryAm done?22:45
hwamokp66or should it be /www/public_html/website.com22:45
bekkshwamokp66: No. Neither nor. Those arent Ubuntu paths. :)22:45
bekkshillary: I'd say yes.22:45
beandoghwamokp66: general syntax is /var/www/website.com/htdocs22:46
hwamokp66beandog: oh gotcha, thanks22:46
hwamokp66i can change permissions through sftp right?22:46
beandogdepends on your client22:46
bekkshwamokp66: if your user hass the permissions to change permissions, yes.22:47
hwamokp66its the root!22:47
hillarybekks: Since i can work from the root is okay i continue working from root?22:47
bekkshwamokp66: Hopefully it is not.22:47
bekkshwamokp66: Clear NO.22:47
=== Thorium220 is now known as Thor|Away
bekkshillary: clear no.22:47
hwamokp66i thought i was using hte root?22:47
hwamokp66ru telling me not to use it, or its prob not a root22:47
bekkshwamokp66: We dont know which username you entered.22:47
beandoghwamokp66: dunno if filezilla has an interface to let you do it, right click on a directory / file and see22:47
bekks!root | hwamokp6622:48
ubottuhwamokp66: 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/RootSudo22:48
hwamokp66i put in root and the password that the clodu hosting company gave me when i first started up the server?22:48
bekks!root | hillary22:48
ubottuhillary: 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/RootSudo22:48
beandoghwamokp66: you're fine22:48
hwamokp66i didnt need to do sudo to run anythign when i was in throuhg Putty22:48
hwamokp66so its safe to say it IS the root accoutn no?22:48
tnk1Bashing-om, will reboot it when finished with the work day... will keep you posted.. do you stay signed in to this irc channel?22:49
bekkshwamokp66: yes, thats safe. but it is not safe to use it all the time.22:49
zeroRooteris there no way to highlight in the default document viewer?22:49
freeone3000I would like to install mongodb-server and mongodb-clients from saucy, while still keeping the remainder of my packages at precise. Is there a way to do so? (It's not in precise-backports, so I'm going a bit more manual.)22:50
hillarybekks: infact when i write su put password and invoke apt-get update it runs well22:50
hwamokp66bekks: I will make another acocunt and disable the root. I haven't had the time to make the server a little more secture yet! :D thanks for the help22:50
bekkshillary: Since you said that you messed up even more permissions, and opened up the root account, I am resting your case. My only advice is to entirely reinstall that machine.22:51
spjtzeroRooter: You might want to try okular22:51
zeroRooteri can't live without highlighting ^_^22:51
lickalottGents, has anyone installed CAC certificates on an Ubuntu rig and been able to use them to sign/view PKI emails?22:52
spjtzeroRooter: okular does highlighting and annotations and all that stuff22:52
Bashing-omtnk1: , no I do mot stay signed on here, my primary focus is ubuntuforums. This issue, I think the next thing is to RE-boot, and clean up lots of things - that is a process in and of it's self. Re-boot and let's see where we stand.22:53
tnk1ok, one sec22:53
hillarybekks: Thanks i will.22:53

HornetI seem to have no working keyboard in gnome ubuntu 13.10 64bit?23:09
Hornetnumlock works, key input does not23:10
Hornetobviously I can't use the terminal to even begin to debug23:10
spjtzubuntu: is it encrypted? I had that warning before23:10
OerHeksHornet, does the 4 & 6 number move your mouse?23:11
HornetOerHeks, one moment23:12
Hornetpc in question in other room23:12
OerHeksHornet then you have mouse emulation enabled, see if your keyboard or mouse menu has a mouse emulation option, i believe the keyboard menu23:12
HornetOerHeks: no, but numeric enter works23:14
Hornetscroll lock won't toggle on either23:14
OerHeksHornet, then i have no clue23:14
Hornetthanks all the same23:14
Hornetgoogle seems to imply I'm the only person to have experienced this, eve23:15

Azendaleis there a way to upgrade 12.04LTS server to the latest 14.04 beta/daily build?23:16
Hornetneed to do some cli stuff before I can install23:16
Hornetand can't do that without a keyboard...23:16
HornetAzendale: probably but not sure you'd want to yet, may as well wait23:18
zubuntubluefrog:  it opens ubuntu normally but it is giving that warning or error at start up23:18
zubuntudont know why23:18
spjtI'm more interested to find out how to downgrade 14.04 :)23:18
Hornetdragonfly: does that narrow it down at all?23:18
AzendaleHornet: I've used betas before and it worked alright23:18
OerHeksspjt, re-install, there is no other downgrade23:18
spjtOerHeks: Yeah, I know.23:19
zubuntucan somebody help me pls ?23:19
dragonflyHornet: have you rebooted and gotten the same result?23:19
spjtAzendale: If you really want to, you have to upgrade to each release before it. Then edit /etc/apt/sources.list to get 14.04.23:20
spjtThe only real "problem" I've had with 14.04 is if you need anything from a ppa, forget it23:20
zubuntufstab  report is this :  http://www.icqturkiye.com/paste/view/raw/5bcdc19523:20
bluefrogzubuntu, then all is cool23:21
zubuntubluefrog:  why do i get that warning while booting then ?23:21
bluefrogbecause it has  to wait for it to be ready. it's written23:22
Wulframnzubuntu, is the word wrap present in the file or just in the upload?23:22
AzendaleThis is an install of server version, yes, but it is not currently in use. The tool I was going to put on top of it wants python3-requests package, which is not in 12.04, but is in >=12.10. I'm fine with it being beta stuff while I'm working on getting the tools all going, but I eventually want to leave it at an LTS. So my thought was to go to the beta in one LTS -> LTS (beta) hop (I was hoping), and I just wont declare that machine r23:22
zubuntuwhat Wulframn  ?23:22
zubuntusorry i didnt understand what u mean23:23
spjtAzendale: You'd be better off just upgrading to 13.1023:23
Hornetdragonfly: it's live, but yes23:23
WulframnWhen I view the file you linked the lines are wrapped. Each line should be all on one line.23:23
Hornetit has an error on startup, and the error reporter then has an error so I can't see what broke23:23
spjtAzendale: Or, just try to install whatever you want by hand23:23
zubuntuWulframn: let me try it again23:24
spjtAzendale: or maybe it has a ppa23:24
zubuntuWulframn:  it s how you see23:25
zubuntunot wrapped or something else23:25
Azendalespjt: upgrading to 13.10 would be better because the upgrade from 12.04 -> 14.04 is iffy (nonexistant) or is it because 14.04 isn't declared "stable" yet?23:25
zubuntuwhat should i do now ?23:25
dragonflyHornet: try it without that keyboard and use a different one instead?23:25
zubuntuby the way what are the copy-paste-cut  shortcuts in terminal ?23:26
zubuntuctrl+c doesnt work23:26
zubuntualso ctrl+v23:26
spjtAzendale: Because 14.04 is less stable than 13.10, and you can just upgrade to 14.04 when it comes out.23:26
bluefrogzubuntu, shift ctrl c23:27
zubuntualways shift ?23:27
zubuntuok thx23:27
spjtAzendale: Besides, if you do it now you're going to have to do every version upgrade anyway23:28
WulframnInclude shift. Or just type out the commands slowly and correctly23:28
Hornetdragonfly, that's the only good keyboard I have, but I can try with an ancient USB one23:28
=== Extensa5630 is now known as Shut-in
dragonflythat would be my next attempt :S23:29
Hornetk, back in a while I suppose then23:29
Artemis3zubuntu, select command you want to copy, don't bother with ctrl c, then in terminal press the middle mouse button (usually a wheel), Magic!23:29
Hornetit's live so takes about 10 mins between reboot -> usable23:30
Azendalespjt: ah, so whatever "magic" to allow an 12.04 -> 14.04 upgrade isn't set yet? Or are you saying after I'm on 14.04 and I want to go to 16.04 (when that happens) i'll have to go through 14.10, 15.04, 15.10 to get there?23:30
zubuntuArtemis3:  i m using laptop no wheel23:31
Artemis3Azendale, you can upgrade from LTS to LTS23:31
Artemis3zubuntu, often, pushing both mouse buttons do the trick23:31

wiakin a bash script how can i remove 3 parts of a read down input?23:32

unicornjedihello, my ubuntu desktop wont wake up from suspend properly. All I get is a black blank screen.23:37
Azendalespjt: Ok, thanks for the clarification. I think that makes the decision easy. I think the big reason to try to go to 14.04 was the one hop.23:38

dragonflyunicornjedi: do you see your cursor when this happens or not even that?23:40
