unicornjedicandyman, are you using a live bootcd?00:00
phuhIf man is missing on a system, should I install all of "man", "manpages", and "man-db"?00:00
candymanso yes i am00:00
Beldarcandyman, probably works there I would use te live cd however00:00
unicornjedicandyman, I only know how to use Live clonezilla. would you like me to show you how to set that up?00:00
candymanyes sure00:00
candymanbut why isnt the cloning starting?00:01
candymanit just closes00:01
candymanand leaves a process that hogs 25% CPU00:01
unicornjedicandyman, I don't know.. :( i just know how to use liveClonezilla.00:01
candymantoo bad :/00:02
unicornjedicandyman, before we start, tell me about the disks you are cloning.00:02
candymanthe first is SATA 80 GB Seagate00:02
candymanthe other is SATA III WD Black 1 TB00:02
unicornjedicandyman, haha good :) it would be troublesome to clone to a smaller disk.  Is your source the SATA 80GB SeaGate?00:03
candymani am cloning from the 80gb to the 1 tb00:03
unicornjedicandyman, okay cool. Do you know how to create a LiveUSB?00:04
unicornjedicandyman, okay let me link you to the clonezilla iso00:04
robjloranger+1 clonezilla00:05
candymanis it safe to close the ocs-onthefly process?00:05
candymanits using 25% CPU00:05
candymanmaybe its doing the cloning in the batch?00:05
darkfrogHey guys, I have a file server that has a software RAID5 array and I'm currently in the process of replacing Fedora with Ubuntu, but I'm wondering what I need to do to restore the RAID?00:05
=== comp is now known as computerxpds
darkfrogthe boot / formatted drives are *not* the raid array, I just want to restore it and use the existing data on it00:05
candymanrobjloranger: is it doing the cloning in the background?00:05
unicornjedicandyman, clonezilla.org/downloads/download.php?branch=alternative00:06
candymanthank u00:06
candymanbut is it safe to close ocs-onthefly00:07
=== avis is now known as Guest14645
robjlorangeri think so, ocs-onthefly is used to copy on the fly from partition to partition00:07
candymanwhat does that mean?00:07
candymanwhat does on the fly mean?00:07
unicornjedii don't know what that is... :(  I just know how to clone a source disk to target disk that are not the same size/00:07
robjlorangerit means right now, as we go00:08
candymanSO ITS CLONING NOW?!00:08
robjlorangerso basically some cloning creates first an image, then writes the image. on the fly is more like copying files00:08
robjlorangeri assume so, given it is running at %25 usage?00:09
candymanyes... so should i leave it?00:09
robjlorangeri would, you could check and see if there is anything being written. view the destination drive in a file manager or cli00:10
robjlorangerit seems lame that there is no feedback on what it is doing00:10
acpiorwhatI am running 14.04 and i can´t execute lxsession-default-apps, because it hangs at "The database is updating, please wait" I have waited over 10 minutes!00:10
candymanthe file explorer says udevil: error 64: unable to determine device fstype - specify with -t00:10
robjlorangercandyman: strange. maybe it isn't working. is the drive formatted? what program were you using again?00:12
candymanseeing the partitions with gparted says that they arent formatted00:12
candymanor are corrupt00:12
robjlorangerweren't you using parted magic or something?00:13
candymanyes, thats a linux distro00:13
candymanhas gparted and clonezilla and some other tools in it00:13
candymanits a livecd00:13
robjlorangerooh ok, i have only used clonezilla as a standalone cd00:14
robjlorangeri'm not sure why gparted can't see them.. can you view the source with a filemanager?00:15
candymanthe source00:15
candymani cann00:15
candymanand gparted can see the source too00:15
candymanbut not the target00:15
candymani will just go and burn the livecd clonezilla00:15
candymanand try it00:16
robjlorangeroh ok, yes. and make sure you format the target again to be sure00:16
acpiorwhatI am running 14.04 and i can´t execute lxsession-default-apps, because it hangs at "The database is updating, please wait" I have waited over 10 minutes! what gives?00:16

antonionewRock on Beldar ....we are trying it now....catcha on the flip side!00:32
NarukiBashing-om: This is an older guide that worked for me with Ubuntu 13.10, but it just doesn't seem to apply to 14.04.00:32
NarukiBut that is probably because I am clueless about that sort of stuff in Linux00:33
unstableIs there awesome tiling plugins for unity/ubuntu? the control alt numpad stuff doesn't cut i.00:36
unstableI'd like to be able to set my own box sizes, for my screen00:36
Bashing-omNaruki: Well,The developers may not have it ready for 14.04, qnd to addrress the original question;The commands or scripts that one wants to execute should be added to the script /etc/rc.local. Is one way.00:37
Narukicool, thanks00:37
NarukiI have never played with rc.local before00:37
acpiorwhathow can i enable acpi while the system is up and running?. i do not want to enable acpi at boot because i have noticed that performance is very slow if acpi is enabled at boot time00:38
Bashing-omNaruki: Ya might drop the developers ofSynergy a line - if there is no documentation it runs on 14.04 - and see when it will be released.00:38
NarukiUnfortunately the Synergy site never seems to update their docs for this particular issue. I think those instructions are over a year old by now00:39
NarukiSomebody else has already griped at them in a forum post I saw when I was researching this, but I never saw them respond00:39
Bashing-omNaruki: If ya can wait for the login, omne can start an application from the "startup" menu. (don't run a GUI so do not know where exactly).00:40
NarukiI will give it a go, though00:40
Narukiomne? I will look for that, too00:40
Beldaracpiorwhat, a little research maybe, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Reference/ACPITricksAndTips00:40
Narukinot seeing it. Is there a link?00:41
Bashing-omNaruki:  omne* fat fingering ! * one ....00:41
Narukihe he00:41
NarukiBut that is for starting up AFTER log in, correct?00:42
NarukiThat part I don't think will be as big a problem00:42
NarukiSynergy actually needs to start twice00:42
NarukiOnce before login so that I can actually log in (synergy lets me share keyboard & mouse across the network)00:43
acpiorwhatBeldar, that URL does not give the answer00:43
Narukiand then again after I am authenticated00:43
Narukilogged in00:43

Connienot sure if it's ok to ask here, is there any good bittorrent client similar to utorrent?00:48
acpiorwhatBeldar, but it does since the performance difference is enormous. the downside to boot with acpi=off is that the laptop's lack of power management and the computer not powering off when executing shutdown00:48
Bashing-omNaruki: Not having used the cool tool 'Synergy' I really have no other advisement, 'till the time it is released for 14.04, not much you can do anyway.00:49
Beldaracpiorwhat, I don't see as of yet anything empirical in your rhetoric, sorry.00:50
rwwConnie: similar how?00:50
NarukiThanks for your help. I will be looking at rc.local and the Startup folder00:50

theadminConnie: Deluge is pretty neat too00:51
NarukiSynergy runs fine in Ubuntu 14.04. It's just that Ubuntu's default startup script locations has changed since 13.10, so I don't know where to stick my commands. I'll keep playing with it.00:51
darkfrogI just formatted my boot drive and want to retain the data on my RAID array but can't seem to figure out how to bring it back to life00:51
Connietheadmin and rww: thanks00:52
Bashing-omNaruki: I do not have 14.04 installed, but I would be surprised if /etc/rc.local no longer existed. (systemD ???).00:54
Narukiit does exist00:54
rww14.04 doesn't have systemd.00:54
NarukiI just have no knowledge of that file. I have been following the Synergy guides for adding scripts, and they mention editing /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf00:55
Bashing-omrww: ^^ Thanks for that .00:55
NarukiI am not exactly a Linux expert. Mostly I know how to screw around with my .bashrc and follow explicit instructions for getting into bigger trouble00:56
Bashing-omNaruki: What desktop ya running ? just adapt '/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf' to the DE you have.00:56

holsteinskinux: you may want to read something like http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/08/omg-5-five-ways-to-free-space-in-ubuntu ..uninstalling some applications may not be recovering the space you think, and may not be the "best" way to reclaim, or free-up space02:15
Bashing-omskinux: What release are you running ? "/dev/sda7        30G   28G  196M 100% /" need to look -> cd /, sudo du -sx * | sort -n <- pastbin that .02:16
zykotick9Bashing-om: what does that paste show?  <i'm not going to pastebin.com to find out>02:16
RippSteakfacesomsip: The only issue I have is with the parenthesis: Fan Speed:${alignr}${exec sensors | grep 'RPM' | awk '{print $3}} If I remove the { from exec and at the end, it also screws it up, I'm sure it's just something simple messing with the display, can you see what's wrong?02:16
zykotick9Bashing-om: sorry, 2 seconds to slow... i see your reply02:16
Bashing-omzykotick9: as ya suspected, sda7 is at 100% capacity -> sda7 is root.02:17

blueingressBen64, Hi02:27
xanguaDo I need anymore packages besides gnome-panel to use gnome fallback mode¿02:28
Beldarxangua, 14.04?02:28
blueingressI have some problem when I tried "sudo do-release-upgrade -d" in ubuntu 12.1002:28
xanguaBeldar: yes02:28
somsipRippSteakface: ah - $2 was it? fair enough :)02:29
RippSteakfacesomsip: The only thing is it doesn't display RPM anymore strangely enough02:30
Beldarxangua, This is nice it shows a metacity or compiz option. http://askubuntu.com/questions/452665/fallback-to-gnome-classic-desktop-ubuntu-14-0402:30
somsipRippSteakface: awk will only return '1140' in this example, so you will need to add a label in conky to show 'RPM' after the output of the grep|qwk statement02:31
Beldarxangua, In 14.04 the shell is ubuntu-gnome-desktop to get the whole meta, the falback has changed to it seems02:31
somsipRippSteakface: so it could be as easy as "Speed:${alignr}${exec sensors | grep 'RPM' | awk '{print $2}'} RPM"02:32
Beldarbeen that way for a few releases not sure since when02:32
RippSteakfacesomsip: Fan Speed:${alignr}${exec sensors | grep 'RPM' | awk '{print $2}'} RPM02:33
RippSteakfacesomsip: Hah got it. Is grep needed?02:33
=== megabitdragon is now known as megabit|away
somsipRippSteakface: grep will select one line that has 'RPM' in it from the output of 'exec sensors' so yes, you need that02:33

unstableWHat is the best app to take a screen video of one of my monitors?02:37
unstablethe best in the opinion of whomever wants to answer02:38
unstablegetting into semantics is a waste of time, everyone knows what I mean. I'm aware I'll get a variety of opinions.02:39
* zykotick9 wonders why !best has disappears, and possibly !enter (thought perhaps what wasn't an #ubuntu factoid, but should be)02:39
unstableprobably becaust !best is a waste of time to mention02:39
somsipzykotick9: it's still there, maybe the bot is dead02:39
somsipnot that then02:39
somsipzykotick9: my mistake "<deleted>"02:40
unstableeveryone who uses the word 'best' in the context I'm using it.. is aware of what they're asking, and they ask it anyway02:40
somsipunstable: no they don't. Polls are not encouraged here02:40
zykotick9somsip: thanks.02:40
SchrodingersScatunstable: but then when we offer a solution they'll say, "No, that won't work for me because of X" where X is the problem they're really having and should be asking about in the first place.02:40
somsipzykotick9: it seems that the ops have change a lot of factoids since 14.04. EOT02:41
unstableThere are 5+ screen recorders.. and there isn't a good rating system to find out which one is the best.02:41
unstablethe search/rating for ubuntu apps is lacking, and #ubuntu is probably one of the best places to find this information02:41
SchrodingersScatfreedom promoting software lets you try them all02:42
unstableI don't have a special use case, I just can't easily differentiate the quality of the various apps.02:42
unstableWhich one does stallman use?02:42
SchrodingersScatunstable: plus, there's so many factors, best to me might mean running in cli, someone else might find anything without a gui to be trash.02:43

loadenI can use xbacklight -set 60 to change the brightness.02:46
zykotick9Beldar: <ot> i'd agree, stallman is insane.  but he's also brilliant.  and the line between brillance and insanity is often very fine...02:46

GerowenAnybody know why the wireless card in this laptop (Broadcom B4311) wouldn't work even though both linux-firmware-nonfree and firmware-b43-installer(which lists this card specifically) are installed?02:58
Gerowensysinfo properly identifies the card, but it's not listed in the network manager and flipping the hardware switch doesn't have an effect.02:58
pavlosGerowen, some bmc chips need the ndiswrapper02:59

GerowenNow onto my other issue.  The same computer hangs up when shutting down.  When I removed "quiet" and "splash" from the boot arguments, and then did a shut down, the "Killing all remaining processes" line failed, and when it says, "Will now halt", it just sits there.  I can't seem to find a log of the shutdown procedure or I would give more details.03:19
GerowenI posted a screenshot, albeit blurry, here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/465555/14-04-hangs-on-shutdown03:20
syeekickzykotick9, you on 14.04?03:21
SohronGerowen: do you get from that "Will now halt" with pressing the any key to reboot?03:22
zykotick9syeekick: sorry, i have NO idea about 14.04 specifically... i _certainly_ could be wrong!  N-M is a big question mark for me...03:23
Sohroneh eh03:23
GerowenSohron: I just tried it and it rebooted just fine without hanging...03:23
GerowenPerhaps the freezing had something to do with the incorrect wireless drivers.03:23
Sohronthat's what i guesed03:23
GerowenSohron: I mean I didn't press a key, I just did a reboot just to see.03:23
syeekickzykotick9, its cool its just bamboozliing03:23
Sohronah okay03:23
GerowenSohron: I'll do a couple shutdowns and reboots to verify it's behaving normally.03:24
SohronGerowen: what did you do to get it reboot then?03:24
raul782pavlos: thanks a lot, that did it, will remember to install always that library when provisioning new servers03:24
Sohronjust curious03:24
GerowenSohron: Nothing, but immediately before doing that reboot I just resolved an issue with my Broadcom wireless card.03:24
GerowenSohron: I installed that driver, hit shut down, it froze, and then on the next startup the wireless card worked properly, and then on the next attempt shut downs appear to work fine.03:25
GerowenYep, just worked again, guess it was the wireless.03:25
SohronGerowen: okay, my goddamn new workstation works flawlessly with every bit of hardware it has, it's even eerily strange :D03:25
GerowenSohron: Yeah my desktop works great with the exception that my built-in AMD card doesn't get accelerated graphics support since it's kinda old.03:26
GerowenSohron: Have meant to go buy me a good  NVidia card for a while so I can play some of my Steam games, but have never gotten around to it.03:26
archpcAnyone else trying the Utopic Unicorn alpha? It's nice03:26
SohronGerowen: okay, not even with the AMD proprietary drivers?03:26
=== Jan11 is now known as ON1
Stanley00!14.10 | archpc03:27
ubottuarchpc: Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) is the next development release of Ubuntu due for release in October 2014. Support in #ubuntu+1. For more info, see the announcement at http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/136303:27
archpcI'm using it, lol03:27
GerowenSohron: Nah.  I downloaded the fglrx .deb file and extracted it and read the documentation and my card isn't supported any more.  It is if I use Debian 6 (old stable) or a comparably really old version of Ubuntu with an older version of Xorg, but the newer driver that supports the new version of X doesn't support my card, :-(03:27
SohronI luckily have an quadro card, was reasonal enough to get one of those and not damned AMD03:28
archpcIt seems faster than 14.04, probably just placebo03:28
SohronGerowen: that's bad, what are they thinking dropping support for older cards? it's not *that* old if it's AMD and not ATI...03:29
Sohronwell, it may be "old", but still03:30
GerowenSohron: Per sysinfo: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RS880 [Radeon HD 4200]03:31
zykotick9Sohron: don't expect long support with AMD/ATI graphics...03:31
GerowenIt's not some super great card, but it does pretty good for the games I play, "if" it has acceleration.  I can play the original Half Life at about 30fps, but that's about the max.03:32
GerowenI meant I can play Half Life with the open source ones, :P03:32
zykotick9AMD/ATI also means no "free" 3d... which is reason #2 why i personally will never own one.03:33
Sohronzykotick9: agreed03:33
GerowenThat's why I'm planning on buying an NVidia card.03:33

pavlosraul782, you're welcome03:34
Sohroni was wise early and bought a setup with a quadro card, i still remember the times i used linux before and the ati drivers were total crap03:34
Sohronit took just a little bit of fiddling to get the nvidia binary drivers to work, but it was easy enough03:35
Sohronbut it didn't happen magically like i think it should03:36
Sohronat least on Ubuntu03:36
zykotick9Sohron: <ot> i'm confused, quadro _is_ and ati/amd card???  i remember a time when ATI didn't even have a gnu/linux driver, even thought, at that same time - they where doing there development on gnu/linux :(  ATI should die in a fire, IMO.  why did AMD buy them?03:36
Sohronzykotick9: Nvidia Quadro 600 :)03:37
Sohroni should know, as i bought the pieces and am running the nvidia.ko binary driver with that card :D03:38
zykotick9Sohron: sorry, i thought quadro was an ATI thing...  my bad.03:38
Sohronzykotick9: i reckon it's something AMD Firesomething the AMD professional cards03:39
Sohronwell, this is getting ot really03:40

Guest21240Need to ask a question about ssh and jump boxes?03:40
SachJust did a fresh install of 14.04.  I'm unable to shut down; the screen just stays purple with the 5 red/white dots in the middle.  What do I need to know to understand the error?03:41
GerowenSach: I just had the same issue.  Mine was caused by having the wrong wireless card drivers installed.03:42
SachGerowen: I upgraded from 12.04, so I imagine that my wireless card drives would not be the problem? (Having said that, my wireless is currently not working)03:43
GerowenSach: If yours isn't wireless, you can hold "Shift" as the computer first comes on, and you should see the Grub menu.  Press "e" and look for the words "quiet" and "splash" and delete them, then press F10 to boot.  This will, for that session only, give you a verbose bootup and shut down.  That way when you shut down you won't see the splash screen, you'll actually see text output of what's going on.03:43
GerowenSach: I had to follow the instructions in the marked answer at: http://askubuntu.com/questions/450631/wifi-not-working-in-ubuntu-14-04-lts for my Broadcom card before my laptop would shut down properly.03:44
SachGerowen: did your wireless work fine prior to upgrade?03:45
SachGerowen: I also have Broadcom hardware03:45
holsteinSach: you can get to tty?03:46
zykotick9Sach: Gerowen while i have zero idea what package to file it under, you should both - first look for a related bug on Launchpad, and if none exists, consider filing one.03:46
GerowenSach: Then follow those instructions in the link I shared first to get your wireless working.03:46
Pencil_some of the icons in the launcher no longer work.  where can I find the answer03:47
GerowenSach: That will probably fix your shut down issue, it did mine.03:47
Gerowenzykotick9: I may play around with installing the packages that were in place before and see if I can track down which one causes the freezing.03:47
SachGerowen: error with the second command at that link:   http://pastebin.com/kfrHRknW03:48
holsteinSach: *is* another process using it?03:49
Sachholstein: no.03:49
GerowenSach: Make sure you don't have Synaptic running, or some other package manager like an update manager, software center, etc.03:49
holsteinSach: any other package managers open/running can cause that.. close them, or just reboot the machine if you are unsure03:49
GerowenSach: +1 to what holstein said03:49

hemangpatelproblem in update , http://pastie.org/private/yy5c6hxmyuksdvhlihnrwg04:59
ejoI would really like to issue the pg_createcluster command myself, since this is happening headless/non-interactive05:00
Ben64hemangpatel: 11.10 is no longer supported, you need to upgrade to a supported release, preferably 14.0405:00
ejoI'm doing this during the build of a Docker container running ubuntu 14.04... although I run locale-gen en_US.UTF-8 and set my LANG and other related env variables, the automated process of apt-get install postgresql-9.3 still builds a default "main" cluster that doesn't use my locale.05:01
hemangpatelBen64, is this reason for 404 in packages  ?05:01
ejoI even tried a dpkg-reconfigure locales after the locale-gen and env settings, but that didn't change the situation.05:01
Ben64hemangpatel: yep, it hasn't been supported since may 201305:01
ejoboth the docker and postgresql channels have told me this is more of a debian or ubuntu issue than their issue05:02

Ben64Sach: then you don't have those packages05:19

Beldarcdw, Sounds like you were okay till you used the grub customizer, with his being a uefi, I'm not sure the fix. Were this a mbr grub it's easy.05:20

Beldarshan, Ah, well you can manual install W8 to a partition, but at this point you are maxed on primary partitions, if it add an additional boot you will go dynamic is all, that is not good.  If it were me I would start over and install W8 first and have all the linux in a extended in a logical.06:45

shanBeldar | i asked Question regarding your point here but didn't get answer.... well, then i asked about both OS installation from scratch but same. so last time i installed Ubuntu first then made those partitions manually after ubuntu was installed. Now, what could happen after win 8 installation.06:47

jerknextdoorcan anyone point me in the right direction to get ubuntu working with hiDPI (3200 x 1800)?  supposedly 14.04 supports hiDPI, so what am i doing wrong?  nothing scales at all and there is only one settting I can find that even mentions it, but it only effects a couple things.06:53
Jordan_Ujerknextdoor: Have you changed the "UI Scale" option in the Display preferences?06:54

dw1LowCut: perhaps when you install the 'verified' certificates it will work :)  dont know06:57
Jordan_Ujerknextdoor: You don't see a "UI Scale" option as shown here: http://www.phoronix.net/image.php?id=0x2014&image=unity_hidpi_1_med ?06:57

LowCutok, bye guys, thanks for your time06:58
Jordan_ULowCut: First lesson of your first day, you shouldn't ever use EOL software / distribution versions.06:58
jerknextdoorJordan_U: nope.  that's not what my settings look like.  http://goo.gl/bwRRtD is about what i've got.07:00
Jordan_Ujerknextdoor: It may be related to the fact that you have two displays in use currently. As a test, try unplugging the external temporarily.07:02
jerknextdoorJordan_U: my bad. I don't actually have two displays currently.  That was just the first google image search that had the rest of the settings similar.  give me a second to take a screenshot07:03
jerknextdoorJordan_U: This is my display settings screen.  http://i.imgur.com/Rhrhhpn.jpg  it's quite a bit different than that screenshot you showed.  I have no UI scale.07:05
jerknextdoorJordan_U: this is a clean, fresh install of 14.04 on an XPS 15 if that helps at all.07:06
jkrxjerknextdoor: what exactly is the problem?07:07
jerknextdoorJordan_U: also keep in mind that stuff doesn't look as tiny in the screenshot because i changed my resolution to something much smaller.07:07
Jordan_Ujerknextdoor: Do the options change if you configure the native resolution?07:07
jerknextdoorJordan_U: nope.  native resolution give me exactly the same thing.  I just lowered it so i could read the text in the irc channel.07:08
jerknextdoorjkrx: I don't have any options for higher DPI.  i've go a 3200x1800 screen and i can't read a damn thing on it.07:08
jkrxjerknextdoor: do u have a xorg.conf?07:09
Jordan_Ujerknextdoor: Odd. I've been looking for documetation on this myself out of curiosity, and it really is frustrating that it's either hard to find or non-existant :(07:09
jkrxjerknextdoor: or have u tried kde?07:10

Hardcheesedo you know how to let each keystroke get sent to telnet instead of one line at the time?07:12
jerknextdoorjkrx: this is a clean install of 14.04 not even a couple hours old.  i haven't touched a single .conf.  no KDE.07:12
jkrxjerknextdoor: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/client-1404-unity7-high-dpi07:12
jkrxjerknextdoor: they are currently working on fixing the high dpi issues as far as I can see07:13
jkrxjerknextdoor: so my advice is either skip unity for the time being or try unity 8 (experimental)07:14
jerknextdoorjkrx: That's from January.  HiDPI was a big part of 14.04 supposedly.  Either way, i'm confused at why Jordan_U 's settings look different than mine.07:14
Jordan_Ujerknextdoor: Those weren't my settings, that was a screenshot taken by a user during the beta period.07:15
Jordan_Ujerknextdoor: I'm not currently using Ubuntu so I can't view that particular settings window.07:15
jerknextdoorjkrx: Unity 8 wouldnt help at all since therei isn't a desktop UI for it, only phone.  skipping Unity is just silly since this is an LTS and it should work.  blarg.07:15
jerknextdoorJordan_U: alright, thanks.07:16
jkrxjerknextdoor: as far as I know they havent solved high dpi on unity yet and xrandr is stil the only way to go07:16
Jordan_Ujerknextdoor: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/HiDPI#GNOME_3 suggests "gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 2" for GNOME3, may affect all GTK apps.07:16
jerknextdoorJordan_U: i'll give it a try. maybe I'll jump over to gnome 3 and see if that does anything better.07:17
Jordan_Ujerknextdoor: Apparently GNOME 3.12 is nice, https://twitter.com/mjg59/status/441467175862566912/photo/1 (Mattew Garret is particularly picky and knowlageable about this type of thing) but Ubuntu 14.04 ships GNOME 3.10.07:21

dauntl3sshello everyone, how's it going? I am on a brand new install of lubuntu 13 and I just installed lamp. Now the reason I have a new install is because when I go to my linux internal IP port 80 I get a file called "download" downloads in my browser. I don't know why. I have literally not edited anything. The only ccomman I've entered is sudo  apt-get install lamp-server^ and when I go to09:43
dauntl3sshttp:// it still auto downloads that file and nothing shows up. Any idea why?09:43
dauntl3sswhen I go to localhost on the target machine, it gives me the "It works" apache screen09:44

ActionParsnipshan: considering Grub is on the screen for only a second or two I'm surprised you care at all12:36
amdpllutz I can't because I have no sudoer users12:36
ActionParsnipamdp: then you will need to drop to root recovery and add your user to the sudo group12:36
llutzamdp: cat /etc/issue12:36
ActionParsnipamdp: as llutz  says, what is the output of:   cat /etc/issue12:38
ActionParsnipamdp: users can run the command, it is user readable12:38

amdpllutz, ActionParsnip I'm on a remote server, Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS \n \l - after disabling root and creating first user I lost connection12:39
ActionParsnipamdp: then you will need a smarthands to do it, or login as a user with sudo access12:39

amdpActionParsnip how do I check that?12:47
shanActionParsnip | thanks for Channel advice. : )12:47
ActionParsnipamdp: i'd imagine you will have been told it at some point12:48
ActionParsnipamdp: if it has one12:49
amdpActionParsnip what is that?12:49
ActionParsnipamdp: youve not worked in IT have you12:49
amdpActionParsnip nope12:49
ActionParsnipamdp: iLO and DRAC are remote access technologies for servers, even if the server is off you can still power on the server as well as remotely manage BIOS settings. Stuff you cannot do via RDP or SSH as the service is not up yet12:50
ActionParsnipamdp: because the OS isnt on12:50
amdpI got it12:51
amdpActionParsnip I understand yes I used somthing like that once ago12:51
ActionParsnipamdp: using iLO / DRAC you can mess with Grub and use root recovery mode. Without it an engineer has to walk to the data centre and attach a console to the box and do stuff12:51
amdpActionParsnip alright12:51
ActionParsnipamdp: they also do other stuff  like hardware health reporting, raid config, reportng and other nicenesses12:52
amdpActionParsnip thank you very much for the information12:52
ActionParsnipamdp: so if you dont have access to this, then you'll need a local monkey to go and do stuff for you12:52

amdpActionParsnip and there was a boot problem12:55
ActionParsnipamdp: yes, like that. If your remote server doesnt have that then you will need a remote guy to attend the server and dig you out12:55
amdpActionParsnip thanks again.. going to call the monkeys.. :D12:56

MaxFrames"known bug" since (at least) 6 months ago so no, I am not waiting for a fix, I need a workaround13:11
mary_hateball: what should bein my /etc/postfix/main.cf file in mynetworks13:11
MaxFramesto sum it up: the lock screen feature does not work regardless of how it is triggered (hotkeys, command line, idle timeout, gui buttons) because it still relies on xscreensaver which is missing from lubuntu 13.10 and 14.0413:12
llutzhttp://www.postfix.org/BASIC_CONFIGURATION_README.html mary_13:12
MaxFramesnot being able to lock the screen on a business machine is not acceptable, so this is preventing me to deploy lubuntu machines13:12

_ynkI am looking for a way to develop software using specific, old packages, while keeping my current packages up to date. that is, I want to have an environment to work in (that could be via virtualization or something similiar) that would have package X which is an old package, and my main system will remain unaffected. Any suggestions?13:15
_ynkp.s. with all the old dependencies as well, that could be built by source.13:16
kkkkkkkkki suggest you to update the kernel to 3.14.413:16
cfhowlett_ynk virtualbox.13:17
kkkkkkkkkif your vga is nvidia then it is very recommended13:17
llutzMaxFrames: xscreensaver -> Candidate: 5.15-3ubuntu1      haven'tfollowed your issue, but it's there, install it13:17
Armadilloskkkkkkkkk: Why?13:17
_ynkcfhowlett: for CLI only system too?13:17
dhaval2712Anyone? Ubuntu 14.04 and Cinnamon? I am thinking of installing it on a lenovo G500 which has about 2 Gigs of RAM and not a lot of processor power.13:18
cfhowlett_ynk sure.   install an old server - 12.04 and develop away13:18
kkkkkkkkkArmadilhos: in my case the system crashed while i was playing cs source from steam for linu13:18
MaxFramesllutz: will it not conflict with whatever lubuntu is using now as the lock screen/screen saver module?13:18
cfhowlettdhaval2712 lubuntu or xubuntu.  2 gigs will run slow with ubuntu/unity13:18

kkkkkkkkkArmadilhos: linux, today i have installed the kernel 3.14.4 and the crashed stopped13:18
MaxFramesllutz: I think it is called "light locker"13:19
slopjong'???' should be three placeholders13:19
_ynkcfhowlett: fair enough . I already use virtualbox anyway so that would make it convenient. I don't know why I didn't think about that :)13:19
llutzMaxFrames: check dependencies or better, conflicts13:19
Armadilloskkkkkkkkk: Are you using the open-source driver, or the driver from Nvidia?13:19
kkkkkkkkkArmadilhos: i believe it's a ACPI crash13:19
kkkkkkkkkARmadilhos: nvidia proprietary13:19
dhaval2712cfhowlett: So you don't recommend it then? I ask because Cinnamon with Mint works fine on a very old 1GB RAM/Core2duo machine.13:19
Picislopjong: That is in the regular Ubuntu repositories.  You should be able to just do: sudo apt-get install ruby-sass13:19
MaxFramesllutz: right, I wouldn't know how to. can you tell me?13:19
Armadilloskkkkkkkkk: What version of Ubuntu? I'm on 13.10, and haven't had any issues so far.13:20
kkkkkkkkkArmadilhos: i believe the bug is in the kernel13:20
llutzMaxFrames: apt-cache depends xscreensaver13:20
dhaval2712The reason I want to go for Ubuntu is obviously because it's LTS.13:20
cfhowlettdhaval2712 I've no experience with cinn.  If you like it, run it.13:20
slopjongehm, Pici i missed the little but important information that i'm using precise13:20
kkkkkkkkkArmadilhos: ubuntu 14.04, and i had this bug on 12.04 too13:20
cfhowlettdhaval2712 lubuntu/xubuntu 14.04 are LTS13:20
dhaval2712LXDE and XFCE are a little TOO minimal I think.13:21
MaxFramesllutz: ok, the output is very long, but I see several packages listed as "conflicting"13:21
dhaval2712cfhowlett:  This is not for me, this is for a cousin that lives quite far away.13:21
cfhowlettdhaval2712 ah.  good challenge!13:21
Armadilloskkkkkkkkk: Weird, I had 12.04 too, but never had that problem.13:22
slopjongPici, aptitutde install ruby-sass installs an old version in my case, so that won't work13:22
kkkkkkkkkArmadilhos: for that reason i suggest you to upgrade. I am using nvidia 331.67 driver version13:22
dhaval2712Anyway, thanks a lot though. I have to run. Take care, and I'll see you around popey.13:22
Picislopjong: then you will not be able to install that version.  Unless you can find a (unsupported) PPA for it.13:22

MaxFramesllutz: I can only figure out half of that :D13:43
MaxFramesby all means, I think lubuntu is now using a different lockscreen module, but they forgot to implement it fully13:44

pip__when I do a fresh install & tick the install third party software box proprietary graphics drivers are not installed.  Is this regular behaviour or is there something I need to do to make that happen?14:40
Beldarpip__, what is the graphic hardware?14:40
pip__nvidia gtx76014:41
pip__zoyac amp edition14:41
Beldarpip__, I suspect you have several options in the additional drivers is this correct?14:41
Beldarpip__, This a optimus, dual card deal?14:42
pip__yeah, that's not the issue.  I keep reading in the forums that a driver will be installed if I check the box.  That is not & never has been my experience.  I actually prefer to use additional drivers after the system is installed14:42
whoeverneccs_admin: so I assume your running lshw on each box14:42
pip__nope, single gtx76014:42
Beldarpip__, I have no real exact answer, but this happens, not sure of the regularity, much less than drivers getting installed I suspect.14:43
pip__Beldar, thanks for trying I'd just like clarification14:44
Beldarpip__, Hehe, no problem, I assume you are on the net when you install.14:45
pip__as I say I've never had a proprietary graphics driver installed during the installation process, boxes checked or not14:45
neccs_adminwhoever: no, I'm not runnign lshw14:45
pip__Beldar, yes, I always tick the 3rd party & download updates boxes14:45

pip__Beldar, I'm just getting irritated over nothing really :)14:47
whoeverneccs_admin: ok , what is you packe manager14:47
Beldarpip__, proprietary will not get installed in general even if in the repos I believe, the box you tick is 3rd party, not exactly the same.14:47
Beldarsounds the same I know14:47
whoeverneccs_admin: sudo apt-cache search lshw14:48
pip__Beldar, I've always regarded the 3rd party as stuff for mp3 etc, not amd or nvidia graphics drivers14:48
whoeverneccs_admin: also are your boxes wired or wireless P14:49

dilluI am using Xubuntu 13 and want to upgrade to 1414:50
Beldarpip__, Yeah me to, codecs. You can't believe what others say or post, or at least use a little scientific inquiry in it's analysis.14:50
module000pip__: you are correct, the 3rd party driver box in installation is for codecs. that won't cause something like the nvidia binary drivers to be installed14:50

majodi just watched my ssd being filled in gigabytes, without any interesting program running...i ran the system monitor and had 20GB free...in just a minute i had only 16gb free...i rebooted and still had only 16gb free, but now suddenly i have 30gb free...can it be because i use ssd ?15:57
Beldarmajod, You trim the ssd manually or in a cron?15:58
majodBeldar: im not 14.04, so it should be automatic, no?15:58
Beldarmajod, Not in linux per-say, there is a setup for ssd some differ from others. Could be other issues as well.15:59
Seramonhave I destroyed my ubuntu?15:59
majodBeldar: do you have something specific on mind? should i check something? i have ubuntu installed only few weeks and had windows 8.1 before, no problem with my ssd16:00
BeldarSeramon, When you removed the python were you looking at what else was removed IE dependencies?16:00
OerHeksSeramon, try the suggestion from xangua, reinstall that metapackage16:00
satelliteSeramon | why not reinstall python to check!!! :p16:00
Seramonwhat is the latest version of python anyway?16:01
Beldarmajod, windows auto-trims is all, here is one I use, https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/ssd16:01

Seramonoh thanks xangua, now it seems to be processing16:10
Seramonand beldar and otheres for the help16:10
Beldarmajod, There are probably linux OS's that do this automatically, however linux in general is a is setup for people to tweak easily. You might also realize that there are numbers of apps and packages and drivers that have to be reversede engineered as open source is not supported by some major providers.16:11
keevitajahi, what is good remote desktop app?16:11
OerHekscanons, why would a mouse takeover keys ,  seems like a hardware-problem.16:12
Beldarmajod, Apple and MS are more hands free in general probably, but you do not hae the control you have in open source.16:12
canonsOerHeks: It worked fine for several months without any problems16:12
canonsOerHeks: It's a Logitech G9X16:13

not_roastedHello friends. Is there a way to adjust the length of time with Unity's "urgent animation"? For example, the wiggle only happens for all but a second. It'd be nice to make it last longer, or perhaps wiggle for 2-3 seconds every x amount of seconds/minutes that pass. Is there a way to adjust this?16:28
OerHekscanons, i cannot find any related bugreports, maybe it is an optimus issue as you suggested16:29
Jenny__Beldar: thanks.  I'm researching at the link you provided.16:29

prachhi all16:43
pvl1genii: it seems like im getting fs errors16:45
Beldarpvl1, Did you look at the smart check?16:46
geniipvl1: Then you probably want to first boot up into recovery and run fsck on the partitions it has. Additionally, if it is SMART capable, check in your computer BIOS to enable that. If it's just some corruption, fsck will fix it. If the drive is beginning to go bad, the SMART will report it.16:46

BluewolfBeldar: Well its on my laptop which was preinstalled with Windows 7 and I did not want to casue any problems, its current status is free. Also would it not be a problem having /home and root installed on sda while swape is on the 8GB sdb?17:17
=== ss__ is now known as s2013
BeldarBluewolf, is the sdb a internal or external, there is a speed differential.17:18

surprisetrexis it normal for ~2gb of ram to be taken up running a browser, skype and a few other small apps like empathy?17:20
BluewolfBeldar: Its an internal on my Laptop, my guess is that is was a Windows 7 cache (Which I wiped out by the looks of things)17:20
BeldarBluewolf, AS far as I know swap on a separate internal should be the same, others might have info.17:20

michaelaguiarIf I have a DHCP server, what is a good time to set the max / default lease time for each IP?17:21
BeldarBluewolf, Is sdb a ssd?17:21

michaelaguiarrypervenche: is this a standard time?  I have an office of about 40 people, with multiple devices totaling around 120 - 150 connections17:22
BeldarBluewolf, This a newer computer, we have seen ones with W8 that have a small ssd and a regular HD.17:22
rypervenchemichaelaguiar: That is what most DHCP servers use at the default. You can choose any time that works for you.17:22
michaelaguiarrypervenche: Maybe I’ll switch to 12.  Does adding more time increase the risk of IP conflicts?17:23
rypervenchemichaelaguiar: You shouldn't have any conflict.17:23
BeldarBluewolf, I think your fine with swap anywhere internally basically, you might look up the hardware if you are not sure on theses HD.17:24
Beldarthese* lol17:24
BluewolfBeldar: Does it change from ssd to sdb when the partition is formated or deleted. Reasoning being is when I first got the computer I cleaned it completely of windows and started a fresh with Linux Mint?17:24

=== Germanaz0 is now known as Germanaz0|0FF
BeldarBluewolf, the read as a sda or sdb can be backwards on a live usb, kinda strange, what ever is first read in the bios should be sda I believe.17:25

BluewolfBeldar: 8GB or 7.5GB in real terms, the size of the partition is 8012MB. As far as I know the swap is ether the same as the RAM or double it?17:37
BeldarBluewolf, I'm getting the feeling you may not be up on what swap does in general. Two main uses, allows hibernate, and is used when the memory is used to a point the swap is needed. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq  There are other incidental swap uses.17:37

BluewolfBeldar:  I am not an advanced user but I do use Hibernation.17:45
BeldarBluewolf, I think so yes. The test idea was really to see if there would be a performance difference, should not be, but if one was concerned they could try either HD.17:46
BluewolfBeldar: One is always concerned about computers because its always a mission to fix them when there is a problem, but there again one does not over extend themselves when it gets difficult :)17:47

BeldarBluewolf, Thanks so for that 4th partition it should be an extended, now this is a container partition for logical's to be put inside. What this allows is up to I believe 12 logical's in that extended, that is the advantage.18:26

Snake2kHey guys, how I do I activate 2 external monitors at once on my laptop? I have a HP Pavilion DM4 1160us ... It can detect both external displays (one on VGA and one on HDMI) using xrandr but I can't enable both of them at the same time... It times out :|19:56

Sally_gHello everyone, I've got a quick questions about Terminal. I'm trying to launch Thunderbird from the terminal. I thought I could just type /usr/share/applications/thunderbird but I get a no such file or directory message. What am I doing wrong?19:56
bekksmithran: Boot two more times, please, then recreate that graphics.19:56
abaddonPagos,  which os you using? ubuntu, lubuntu, or xubuntu19:57
PagosI'm trying to install xubuntu right now19:57
Pagosbut it's all the same, right? just the de is different?19:57
DrognaSnake2k: Are you sure the laptop can do that? Drive TWO external displays at once?19:58
BeldarBluewolf, I think you will be better with other help here, you are good where your at so far.19:58
mithranbekks: it always looks the same speed19:58
llutzSally_g: just type "thunderbird"19:58
abaddonPagos, roughly yeah, they're the same19:58
abaddonPagos, You try Linux Mint?19:59
Snake2kDrogna: Hmmm, I think that may be the problem... I'm using the internal Intel HD Something chipset... any idea how I can find that out?19:59
llutzSally_g:  /usr/share/applications/  contains *.desktop files, those aren't to be run from terminal19:59
Pagosabaddon: alright, why not19:59
bekksPagos: Mint isnt supported in here...19:59
DrognaSnake2k: Don't know. Do you have windows on it?19:59
NinjaJediRobguys. how do you change the login sreen and the splash page in ubuntu studio?20:00
Pagosbekks, of course it isn't...20:00
abaddonPagos, Well, Mint is Debian based. So it's close to Ubuntu in many ways. Though others will argue that20:00
Snake2kDrogna: Yep, I'll see if windows is able to pull this off20:00

abaddonPagos, I'm just curious how it'll respond to a non ubuntu20:01
Pagosabaddon: I'm not the biggest fan of debian, I just wanted something easy. I'm considering just installing arch or windows 8, at least they work lol20:01
llutzSally_g: most apps are in your $PATH, no need to change into any dir at all20:01
Sally_gllutz: too easy. Thank you sooooo much for your help20:01

BeldarBluewolf, Problem here for me is this. I have been helping you, my first concern is do no harm. Now like I said I do this so often and automatically so seeing that freespace there I never look for, however you have an extended there we saw that in gparted.  My concern is that we confirm all this with someone who remembers exactly every gui and what it shows or says.20:06

unstableazm: Not all the modules exist in apt-get, pip is necessary. just like gem, npm, bower, etc are necessary20:53
abaddonArgentino, need some hlp fixin smthn?20:53
Drognaadamcunnington: You need sudo BUT you're supposed to use a virtualenv so you dont mess up the system python environmeny20:54
unstableyea, +1 on virtualenv. I use that.20:54
adamcunningtonunstable: Drogna i thought that using sudo with pip was a bad idea?20:55
azmI would use pip only when absolutely needed20:55
Drognaadamcunnington: Look up 'venv' or 'virtualenv' in python and use that. If you break thr sysfem python interpreter with your own modules, you will break ubuntu20:55
unstableI use virtualenv + virtualenvwrapper + ohmyzsh, so when I cd into certain directories .. my python environment changes. each project requires a different python environment.. so this is super handy.20:55

championofcyrodiCould someone assist me with a preseed installation of 14.04 using UEFI linux kernel?  I am able to get the preseed installation working with Virtual Box, but no matter how I configure grub.cfg, i just get dropped to the busybox when trying the install on an actual PC.20:55
whoever neccs_admin you get it done ?20:55
adamcunningtonunstable: don't understand how, all the tutorials i've read are confusing20:55
championofcyrodiWith VirtualBox I believe it was using SYSLINUX via PC BIOS, instead of GRUB via UEFI20:56
Drognaadamcunnington: You are right, using sudo with pip is bad. #python can help if you don't understand venv.20:56

azmk1l, sorry, here it is20:56
Argentino abaddon not only with a view20:56

Jordan_Uchampionofcyrodi: If you're starting with a 14.04 Desktop iso, then the only result you'll ever get is the installer itself being a GUI. ubiquity doesn't have a non-X based front end, and the 14.04 Desktop iso doesn't contain Debian-Installer (used in the server and minimal isos).21:06

championofcyrodiJordan_U: is there a similar way to configure the 14.04 distribution?  you mentioned a minimal installation earlier (which im familiar with in centos)21:21
Jordan_Uchampionofcyrodi: 12.04 Desktop, 12.04 Alternate, or 12.04 minimal?21:22
championofcyrodiJordan_U: but I have only seen two ISOs available for 14.04, desktop and server.21:22
championofcyrodiJordan_U:  My target version is 14.0421:22
Jordan_Uchampionofcyrodi: But what were you using previously, and what did you test in the VM?21:23
championofcyrodiJordan_U: it was a few days ago, and I thought it was 14.04.  But after my failed attempts to replicate on an actual PC with 14.04, and your information about the 14.04 installer.  I now think it was 12.04 I had tested in the VM.21:24
championofcyrodiJordan_U:  this site https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/installation-guide/i386/preseed-using.html shows one using the boot parameters.  But specifies the use of syslinux.cfg21:26
Jordan_Uchampionofcyrodi: You think it was 14.04 Alternate? There is a huge difference between the "12.04 Alternate" and "12.04 Desktop" isos. If you're not sure that's fine, but for you to keep just saying "12.04" as if it answers the question is frankly getting frustrating.21:28
rabrolHi all.  I've just put together a simple Ubuntu 14.04 desktop box running samba and am having some file-sharing / permission issues.  Is this a good place to ask questions for help?21:28
Jordan_Urabrol: Yes, ask away :)21:29
surprisetrexanyone know why my nvidia-prime thing won't switch over to intel graphics?21:30
championofcyrodiJordan_U:  14.04 Alternate is not available here: http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/, so if i was using alternate, it would have been with 12.04.  Let me try to summarize briefly, it is not my intention to be frustrating.21:30
surprisetrexwell, the icon in the indicator won't, the actual settings won't switch it to Nvidia21:30
championofcyrodiJordan_U: My users are using 14.04 LTS.  I would like to create an automated process so that I can configure the installation to be automatic. (the installation of 14.04)21:30
rabrolBasically the box is running fairly well.  I can SSH in and use VNC to remote my desktop.  I have 2 ntfs drives full of media (from my old Windows box).  I want read only access for most people, but write access for 2 users.  So far everyone can have read access, but you don't seem to need a password.  I'm unsure if I have the correct permissions set in fstab.21:32
ActionParsnipRabrol: using ntfs makes things harder if you want to share it ohut21:33
championofcyrodiJordan_U: I used virtualbox to 'develop' the preseed configuration, since it took a few test runs to get it working properly.  When using virtualbox the virtual machine utilized what appeared to be PC BIOS firmware.  Because of this, SYSLINUX kernel was loaded, and my preseed configuration specified in isolinux.cfg was found, and it worked as expected.21:33
championofcyrodiJordan_U: Now, I am trying to use the preseed configuration on an actual desktop. (Not a virtual machine)21:34
rabrolAh. Maybe that's why I'm running into issues.  I don't think it would be easy to convert the drives through without a third 2TB drive would it?  Don't want to take any chances with the data!21:34
championofcyrodiJordan_U:  The desktop PC does not show the USB thumbdrive I have loaded the ISO on as 'legacy bootable', but rather shows it as UEFI: USB.21:34
championofcyrodiJordan_U: And when selecting that option, I am presented with the GRUB bootloader, and only the option of installing or trying linux.21:35
Jordan_Uchampionofcyrodi: I recommend that you first do a test in your virtual machine with the same iso you plan to use on the real hardware. Note also that there is no different "Syslinux" or "BIOS" kernel. The same kernel is loaded no matter how you're booting it (BIOS via syslinux, BIOS via grub, UEFI via GRUB, or anything else).21:35
championofcyrodiJordan_U: So, I'm just trying to find out how to get 14.04 LTS to install using my preseed.cfg21:36
championofcyrodiJordan_U:  There a vmlinuz.efi kernel that is loaded instead of the ubnkern21:38
championofcyrodiJordan_U: (when the system is using UEFI)21:38
ertyuhello there21:39
ertyui would like color the dmesg, how to make that posible ?21:39
championofcyrodiJordan_U: for example, kernel=/ubnkern and initrd=/ubninit works with my preseed, but kernel=/casper/vmlinuz.efi and initrd=/casper/initrd.lz does not.21:40

ActionParsnipRabrol: convert then restore to the new fs from your backups21:41
rabrolOK - so I'd need another drive for the backups then.  Basically one of the disks is almost full, the other about 50%.21:42
ActionParsniprabrol: why do you not have a backup now?21:42
ActionParsniprabrol: what if the drive motor or IDE fails, where is your data?21:43
championofcyrodiJordan_U:  perhaps the issue is the unetbootin configuration of the thumb drive...21:43
rabrolActionParsnip: no backups for these drives :-(  My NAS (Raid 5) is full, and these are my extra drives.  If it fails, it is gone!21:44
ActionParsniprabrol: how much is an extra 2Tb drive?21:44
ActionParsnipRabol: not a lot, yeah?21:45
rabrolActionParsnip:Just looking now!  Basically a 3TB is $140.21:45
ActionParsnipRabrol: is your data worth $140 to you?21:46
Jordan_Uchampionofcyrodi: There is only one kernel image in the Ubuntu iso, casper/vmlinuz.efi. Unetbootin copies this file to ubnkern, but it's the same file (and is used for BIOS based systems as well).21:46
ActionParsniprabrol: if your data was irretrievable and someone offered to give it all back to you for $140 would you take it?21:46
greggoso long as they guaranteed refund if they fail21:47
ertyuokay how to convert upper case letter to lower case letter ?21:47
ertyuusing command line ?21:47
rabrolActionParsnip: Maybe. But even if I purchase another drive I would still need to set up another raid array or NAS box anyway to keep it safe.21:47
ActionParsnipGreggo: just trying to make people think. To educate21:47
Jordan_Uchampionofcyrodi: The issue with your particular problem of being thrown to an initramfs prompt is probably related to the initrd not containing the modules needed for your machine's USB controller, or the kernel's drivers simply not working with your machine's USB controller at all. That said, I still think that the first thing you should do is test your VM with the same iso you plan to use on the actual hardware.21:47
greggoso it was hypothetical?21:48
ActionParsniprabrol: yes, and you should. Can you not see what i am getting at here. I'm trying to make you think about the actual value of backup which in money is very very little but the actual value is massive21:48
ActionParsniprabrol: sadly most dumb users don't have backup then whinge when their data is lost or inaccessible21:49
ActionParsniprabrol: you can imagine how much pity I have for them21:49
championofcyrodiJordan_U:  It's not a module compatibility issue.  there are ~60 of these exact same HP Envy's w/ i7 series CPUs running 14.04 in the building now.21:51
Jordan_Uchampionofcyrodi: How was 14.04 installed on them?21:51
championofcyrodi14.04 desktop iso burned to a CD21:51
championofcyrodiJordan_U: than manually configured21:52
Jordan_Uchampionofcyrodi: That means that it could still be a problem with the initramfs not containing the needed modules, as I assume the CD drive was not connected via USB.21:52
championofcyrodiJordan_U: And the installer works when using the ISO written to USB as well21:52
championofcyrodiJordan_U: it just when i specify a different .seed file, i get dropped into ramfs21:52
Jordan_Uchampionofcyrodi: Ahh, that's interesting.21:53
championofcyrodithe ubuntu.seed file which resides with ltsp.seed is utilized with a normal installer21:53
Jordan_Uchampionofcyrodi: I still definitely think that you should test this in the VM with the same iso you plan to use for the actual hardware. Are you going to do that?21:54
rabrolActionParsnip: Yes - I see what you are getting at.  Mostly the data on those drives is easily replaceable.  Just would be time consuming.  Only valuable data is family photos, but I have them backed up to the cloud once a day.21:55
championofcyrodiYea, I'm going to have to I guess.   I'm pretty sure I was using 14.04 on Sunday night when i tested with VM.  And I had to make the change in /isolinux/isolinux.cfg... but it seems there might be an issue with the way unetbootin does things on USB, since the VM is a virtual CDROM drive utilizing the .iso21:55
ActionParsnipRabrol: perfect :-)21:55
championofcyrodiJordan_U: If i get the ISO working... i'll just burn it to disc, and try that.21:56
rabrolActionParsnip: So there is no way to easily use samba to share write permissions with ntfs drives?21:56
qwerkushello, since upgrade to 14.04, each time I boot win 7, it screws up my efi, and I get "error symbol 'grub_term_highlight_color' not found"21:56
championofcyrodiJordan_U: and if that works, it will verify that unetbootin is doing something very different than the traditional ISO boot21:56
qwerkusany chance to fix it ?21:56

I get the following output from lspci -v: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7464997/ . It wrongly states that it's only a USB host controller (the usb part works fine).

Beldorkningu, hi. what is the problem?22:06
ninguBeldork: I was wondering what the general advice is on doing unattended security updates22:06
ninguand how I can limit unattended upgrades to just security updates22:06
rabrolActionParsnip: It is currently a dual-boot system as I am trying to decide whether or not to transition away from Win7 and to Ubuntu. That would be my hesitation to reformat the drives - in casr I go back to WIN.22:06
CoinHeavyis there a best practice for adding/managing services on 14.04 server?  (to easily start/stop scripts and also have them run at startup?)22:07
ninguCoinHeavy: ubuntu has used upstart for that for several years, but I believe they recently decided to switch to systemd. not sure if that's actually happened though.22:07
Beldorkningu, ahhh... http://askubuntu.com/questions/194/how-can-i-install-just-security-updates-from-the-command-line   scroll down to a reply that beings "replace /etc/apt/preferences with the following:"22:09
Beldorkningu, might be a start22:09

Beldorkningu, agreed...... sorry22:11
ninguso hopefully, trusty-security contains all security updates for trusty but not feature updates22:12
Beldorkningu, but there is the unattended-upgrades package....22:12
ActionParsnipRabrol: i dont think you'll be able to manage access ntfs access from ubuntu with windows.22:12
Beldorkto install security updates automatically.... maybe I'm totally missing the point here22:12
ninguBeldork: right. I think that's what I want to do, but I still need to do some manual configuration in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d22:13
ninguI think I've tracked down the documentation for that now22:13
Beldorkningu, which version of ubuntu are you running......22:15
ningu14.04 LTS22:15
Beldorkningu, did you do an upgrade or a fresh install? and if an upgrade did you have problems? I have a couple boxes that could use a version upgrade but my only success is with a fresh install every time22:16
OerHeksningu, what "feature updates" are you pointing at?22:16
ninguOerHeks: I think if you configure Unattended-Upgrade::Allowed-Origins to have "Ubuntu trusty-updates" it will do regular package updates too22:17
ningubut if you just do "Ubuntu trusty-security" it will only do security updates22:17

nith1210metalbrick: I don't remember if graphics cards with shared memory grab a bunch on boot and keep it or scale up to some cap. If the later, then when the OS needs memory, it might reduce the ram the graphics card gets resulting in lag.23:15

nith1210immesys: I'm guessing your home directories are encrypted with ecryptfs?23:43

CoryFail_I'm making a simple media server for personal/home use. I would like to SSH to it and add an external harddrive to it. Would Ubuntu Server fit this need?23:54
Praxihmm Chaser, when I do a udevadm info -a -p /sys/block/sdf what differentiates that device from any other sata drive thats the same model?23:54
Gaming4JCCoryFail_: yes it can. You may refer to #ubuntu-server (or try Debian it runs way less resources)23:55
nith1210CoryFail_: yes.23:55
CoryFail_Hm. I do us Debian for all of my web servers.23:56
bromannith1210, any ideas?23:56
nith1210broman: Try making mesa the first name on that list instead of the second23:56
bromannith1210, still not working23:58
nith1210broman: My only other guess is that your machine is configured to hit the dns servers before /etc/hosts23:59
GerowenCoryFail_: I would also recommend, if you have any media devices like a PS3 or XBox 360, looking at "PS3 Media Server".  There's a linux version of it and it functions the same way Windows Media Player does for streaming media on your computer to those devices.  If you configure it right, it even supports transcoding files normally unsupported by the devices into formats they do support, as the content is streamed.23:59
GerowenCoryFail_: PS3 Media Server isn't the OS, it's just a piece of software you can run on whatever OS you happen to be running.23:59
