arthurfiggishello :) i recently did a fresh install of 14.04, i noticed from free and swapon -s that i have no swap partition/space enabled even though i did create a partition during the install...anyone know how i might be able to get it enabled again?00:03
Beldararthurfiggis, Should be a fstab issue00:03
trap_exitIs there a way to remotely allow a _local_ user to login? I.e. (1) I am SSH-ed into a machine. (2) I want to allow the user in front of the machine I'm ssh-ed into, to login, without using a password.00:04

Beldararthurfiggis, gksudo gedit /etc/fstab   look for the swap lines, you can run sudo blkid to see if the UUID Is correct00:05
arthurfiggisBeldar: I did notice that one line in fstab was commented out, that looked like it could have something to do with swap, but uncommenting it had no effect :( first time i've ever had any issues with creating swap space00:05
daftykinsarthurfiggis: i'd run gparted and make sure swap's turned on00:05
Beldararthurfiggis, Pastebin your fstab if needed00:05
daftykinsarthurfiggis: then make sure the UUID in fstab matches your swap partition00:06
Beldarand the blkid00:06
arthurfiggisdaftykins, Beldar: hmm...blkid i wasn't aware of, maybe that's the problem...something's not matching up :) i'm just getting ready to reboot into a fresh install now, once i get that going i'll give it a try and stop back here, thanks!00:07

ChaosTheoryHi all00:16
ChaosTheoryI'm having a bit of trouble with some trusty-update packages, I wondering is there a way for me to see all the trusty-update packages?00:18
daftykinswhat kind of trouble?00:19
BeldarChaosTheory, use apt in the terminal and run upgrade and you will see all the updates, and what the upgrades are.00:20
ChaosTheorydaftykins, there UI is quite sluggish after installing updates to compiz (and related packges) and xserver-xorg-video-ati/radeon00:20
BeldarChaosTheory, apt-get update than apt-get upgrade00:20
ChaosTheoryBeldar, what i'm looking for is a lits of packages installed on my system that are trusty-update packages, compared to trusty-security packages (see software & updates app under the updates tab)00:22
BeldarChaosTheory, Are you sure that is the answer to the issue? Or this a idea?00:23
daftykinsChaosTheory: here's a very quick idea, rule out your user's configuration by seeing if things still perform badly in a guest session00:24
ChaosTheorydaftykins, good idea, i'll give it a go now.00:25

ChaosTheoryBeldar, so figured out a way to find the list of trusty-update packages via synaptic, I just want to see if there are any other display related packages that may have update that could have slowed down the UI.00:44
smiremdChaosTheory: What version of Ubuntu did you have before?00:44
ChaosTheoryBeldar, if that is the case I'll either downgrade them to the previous version and disable the recommended trusty-updates and just install the security-updates which i'm fine with.00:44
BeldarChaosTheory, You can pin apps if needed, not sure what you are doing is the best option, but it is your baby. ;)00:45
Beldarjust to little detail to really have a good picture.00:46
ChaosTheoryBeldar, so i narrowed down a few updates that seemed video related and downgraded them and used "apt-mark hold" on them, my performance is much better now.00:47
ChaosTheorysmiremd, it's a 14.04 fresh install, it was a trusty-update that slowed the UI down for me.00:47

minimecsmiremd: I am quiet happy with it. Used it in my car sometimes plugged to a computer. Accuracy was ok. Depends on available satellites fixes.00:57
minimecsmiremd: Normally I use it as 'standalone' logger when I do some photo shooting. You can use the device plugged to the computer or 'standalone'00:58
smiremdminimec: It looks like it's what I need. I'm looking on forums etc to try to see how it performs when you move around in small circles (that confuses a lot of gps). Your information was very helpful.01:00
smiremdminimec: I've not yet seen a phone gps that is accurate enough01:00
arthurfiggishello again :) well, i tried a completely default, non-encrypted-lvm "erase the entire disk" install of 14.04...and...i still have no swap partition or allocated swap :( sudo blkid only lists the id for /dev/sda1 whereas fstab states the swap for install was on /dev/sda501:00

kcjSeven_Six_Two: Back.03:33
holsteinADW: its likey just there.. the kernel i s modular, and typically contains all the drivers you need, and that are available.. though, there are exceptions03:33

ADWCan you tell I work in a windows IT world? lol03:35

asshat1ADW: is this a laptop? if so what model?03:35
Seven_Six_TwoADW, drivers can be inserted and removed on the fly, without reboot03:35
Seven_Six_Twokcj, oh I don't know how to change the orientation, but if it allows you to, you can save it to your xorg.conf03:35
waressearcher2ADW: "modular kernel" means every part of kernel can be disabled while compiling it and you can get as tiny as 1MB kernel or as large as 100MB03:36
Seven_Six_Twokcj, yeah, mine allows it on the "X Server Display Configuration" page, listed as "orientation"03:36
ArsaneritWhy might a font work in Firefox but not in Skype?  I helped a friend install ttf-ancient-fonts as per [1].  On my machine (Xubuntu 13.10), this makes emoji work in both Firefox and Skype.  On my friends machine (Kubuntu 12.04 LTS), this makes emoji work in Firebox, but in Skype she still sees missing glyph rectangles.  What might cause this and how might we resolve this?03:37

Seven_Six_TwoArsanerit, try running skype from a terminal, and look at the output to see if you notice an error. I don't know if skype allows it, but there might be an option for verbose logging. try   skype --help   or    man skype03:39

RobbieHi guys, I have a DVD  and everytime I put it in my laptop it tryes to read it for many minutes withouth any results and it can't even read if it is empty or there is something so it says PLEASE PUT A CD/DVD INSIDE. It is obviously corrupted and it is happened after I tryed to burn an .iso file. There is some way to delete it completely without make try my pc to read it? thanks04:51
dmarrapt-get install libgtop2-dev04:51
dmarrfinally.. hard to find these things04:52
SohronRobbie: is it an dvd RW then?04:52
RobbieSohron, yes, correct04:52
Sohronwell, i guess that dvd-drive is out of question at least, maybe try on another box04:53
Sohronif it fails there too, then trash the disk04:53
Sohronthat dvd i mean04:53
duckchatanyone have dual monitors?04:53
RobbieSohron, yes that is the only thing i could do in my experience. the question was if I can delete it again that dvd-rw to burn it again04:54
playdoughHow do I get dpkg to not delay ldconfig on a package?  I think it has something to do with triggers, but I'm not sure how to generate my package.04:55
SohronRobbie: not with the drive which is refusing to recognize the dvd at least04:56
playdoughI put LDCONFIG_NOTRIGGER into a custom postinst, but the standard debhelper doesn't do this.04:56
SohronRobbie: try another dvd-drive, if not working in it either then it's a lost cause04:57
SohronRobbie: some dvd-drives are quite picky what they read04:57
playdoughAll I have is a .install and let debhelper do the rest.  But when I install the package the ld.so.cache doesn't contain my library.04:58
RobbieSohron, Ok Thanks anyway mate04:58
Sohronnp Robbie, sorry for a lost dvd, but it's just one dvd :)04:58

BluewolfHi all, it there anyway to pause this command if it has not finished? - wget -c http://dl.heroesofnewerth.com/HoNClient-
FamilyFriendlyHaBluewolf: you could move it to the background. would that work?05:38
Seven_Six_TwoBluewolf, possibly with ctrl+z but that's only on your end. the other end might not allow you to resume.05:38
BluewolfFamilyFriendlyHa: Seven_Six_Two: I just need to pause it as my off peak net time is coming to its end and I don't want to use my 1GB?05:46
SirLagzBluewolf: depends on the other end. it may or may not let you resume.05:47
FamilyFriendlyHaBluewolf: you can try ctrl+z but pausing likely isn't possible since as Seven_Six_Two already said it may not let you resume on the server side05:47

RobbieHi guys I love to experience always different linux distros even if ubuntu is by far the best for me: drivers, usability etc. I have never seen some linux distro with the same high quality of display included images and text.  Debian and some other I tryed does not have a good quality of visualization, maybe for the drivers they use. Someone know some good alternative to try?05:56
Tm_TRobbie: Kubuntu05:56
somsipRobbie: you're in the ubuntu support channel, so the answer will be 'ubuntu'. Maybe you should ask in somewhere more general like #linux05:57

Robbiesomeone know how to remove the feature that gnu.org is talking about?:  . When the user searches her own local files for a string using the Ubuntu desktop, Ubuntu sends that string to one of Canonical's servers. As of March 2014 we have heard talk of a plan to change Ubuntu to remove this surveillance malfeature. I hope Ubuntu does make that change and soon, since that will vindicate free software's reputation. However, reportedly Ubuntu 14.0406:18
Robbie in April 2014 still has the problem.  Let me know, thanks06:18

jessidhello guys. Good morning. I am having a little doubt and is this: I am using the "echo" command to send a string to ttyUSB0. Specifically I am using an arduino at 115200 baudios. Everything works properly IF I have previously opened the arduino serial monitor. Every time I restart the pc, communication fails before I open the program. I have been searching in the Internet and some people say it is a reset issue with the microcontroll06:57
jessider, but i am not sure becaus i unplug the arduino, wait for a long time (10 minuts) and reconnect it. if the comm had been stablished before, it will work properly. So this leads me to think it is something related with the OS. I am using ubuntu 12.04. Any idea? thanks in advance!!!06:57

someHumansabgenton: Nope, though my terms aren't accurate.09:34
ntzchemist^: generally, if you have two disks and you installed windows first, ubu then and both on separate disks I'd dare to say, that windows and ubu have each boot record on different disk, so the best option is to add windows boot record to ubu disk and set disk with ubu to be booted primnarily09:34

fa7adhello i am trying to render a project using openshot but everytime i try to do it the gui crashes with a segmentation fault. so i tried using openshot-render myfile.osp. but i get this https://dpaste.de/2Lrp09:34
grafico /join #linphone09:34
Stanley00someHuman: like first hard disk and second hard disk? you have 2 hard disk, right?09:35
graficoHi, does anyone use linphone and can give me a help please?09:35
someHumansabgenton: I suggest not using dash to search for your stuff, better use Google client instead09:35
someHumanStanley00: Yup.09:35
ntzgrafico: this is ubuntu channel09:35
Stanley00someHuman: OK, then you need to go to bios setup, and change the boot order as you wish :D09:35
gartralalright all, got an odd little quest of functionality here, I have a phone that, when plugged into any windows 7/8 system, the system automatically pulls up a battery icon that lets me check the charge, what is this called and how do i get in on ubuntu?09:36
someHumanStanley00: No, I want a menu that will show me Windows and Ubuntu like grub/grub2.09:36
sabgentonsomeHuman: I wish dash showed the old menu structure like in the good old days.    I don't like everything in a big pool just cause you can search now09:36
Stanley00someHuman: and then, the grub2 will boot, and normally, it'll show the dual boot menu :D09:36
graficobtz and linphone works on ubuntu so?09:37
Stanley00sabgenton: why not? just type some key and enter, it's faster :D09:37
someHumansabgenton: Well thank goodness Ubuntu's a Linux distro right? You can do what you want with it. Configure it to your needs.09:37
gartralsabgenton: use mate/xfce/kde09:37
sabgentongartral: unity should support it09:38
chemist^ntz, that's the thing i messed up in my opinion... i installed the ubuntu boot record on the windoz disk09:38
Stanley00IMO, if someone don't like unity, he should switch to other distro too :)09:38
ntzgrafico: pff .. apache2 also works in ubuntu and it has surprisingly own chan09:38
graficontz so?09:39
ntzgrafico: so type /join #linphone and ask there09:39
ntzgrafico: anyway, if you asking for meta-Q: in wrong chan, nobody will help you for sure09:40
ntz11:35 < grafico> Hi, does anyone use linphone and can give me a help please?09:40
ntz^^ meta-Q: and in wrong chan too09:40
ntznext (real) question please09:40
mitoniwhen i install a package from backports, does it get automatically updated with 'dist-upgrade' or should it be updated manually?09:41
landauhello....i'm not able to start bumblebee anymore...please can you help me to fix it?09:41
Machan-009grub menu doesn't appear on ubuntu 14.0409:42
graficontz wow you are really smart ... i bet you are an op on the idiots channel.09:43
ikoniagraingert: ok ok, lets tone it down please09:44
ntz11:43 <grafico> go fuck yourself tard09:44
ntzi love ppl who say so in PM and quit immediatelly09:44
ikoniantz: enough - please don't post that stuff in here09:44
ikoniantz: if you have a problem join #ubuntu-ops and explain, or call the !ops trigger if it's an emergency09:44
Machan-009ubuntu 14.04  boot without appearing grub menu  & grub customizer has no effect on it either.09:48
chemist^i tried to reinstall grub and update it but it only finds the ubuntu partitions ... doesn't find the windoz09:49
OerHeksMachan-009, hold shift @ boot09:50
ntzchemist^: can you please pastebin an output from `blkid; fdisk -l' as root (so sudo -i or whatever)09:51
OerHekschemist^, did you perform os-prober too?09:51
chemist^OerHeks, no, i don't know how to do that09:52
OerHekschemist before running update-grub, use os-prober to detect the other OS09:53
chemist^ntz, http://paste.ubuntu.com/7487760/09:53
chemist^ntz, http://paste.ubuntu.com/7487761/09:53
chemist^OerHeks, what's the command for that?09:53
ntzchemist^: wait .. blkid shows only these 3 lines ??? and where is fdisk -l ?09:53
ntzif so you have it wrong09:54
chemist^ntz, i pasted you 2 urls09:54
ntzokay, i see now09:55
chemist^the second one is fdisk -l09:55
ntzchemist^: i'd reconsier to completely reinstall ubu to have at least separate /home if nothing else09:55
chemist^ntz, why should i do that?09:55
chemist^ntz, separate /home partition...i've heard and read ppl doing it, but i don't see any benefits for me09:56
OerHeksntz uhh, reinstall ubuntu because why ?09:56
OerHekschemist^, 'os-prober'  is an detection script, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Setup#Scripts09:56
chemist^i never did that before, and i had no problems whatsoever09:56
OerHeksos-prober does not work with raid, but your install is normal09:57
ntzchemist^: mate, if YOU don't see a foo that clearly doesn't mean, that foo does not exists .. ad.foo == benefits of separate home .. just as a sidenote09:57
chemist^ntz, tell me what benefits are there in having a separate /home partition? ... i use ubuntu just to surf the web, write documents, listen to music and watch movies/TV09:59
chemist^and ok, music production09:59
chemist^OerHeks, amm...i'm kind of lost here10:00
OerHekschemist^, just perform the action to update-grub again, but before 'update-grub' run ' os-prober'10:01
ntzchemist^: pff .. separate /home is standard for many reasons and I really don't plan to list any of them .. if you violate a good defaults (like the separate home is default partition setup in all distros I know) it's up on you10:02
donc3Hi! I have some warnings and errors in the dmesg output could someone help me???10:02
sabgentongartral: http://www.florian-diesch.de/software/classicmenu-indicator/     ahh10:03

r3v3rbhi everyone, I have a LAMP stack running, but am having trouble with the virtualhost - when attempting /etc/apache2/sites-available/default /etc/apache2/sites-available/mysite.com I get an error that ‘default’ is no suh file or directory - which when looked for is true, there is a 000-default which I tried and edited but a2ensite returns Site does not exist!10:04
chemist^ntz, i've always installed ubuntu this way and i had NO ISSUES whatsoever...i've only seen an OPTION to make a separate /home partition once or twice while installing.... it was NOT the default option10:04
ntzdonc3: i don't see anything wrong with your dmesg\10:04
r3v3rbthis is on an Azure VM using the latest Ubuntu release10:04
donc3ntz the acpi errors/warnings  are not wrong???10:05
r3v3rbcan anyone shed some light on the missing default conf file or suggest a way to get my site to show up as available to a2ensite?10:06
ikoniar3v3rb: what missing default config file /10:06
chemist^ntz, so i don't know which distros you have in mind, but the ones i've been using all these years, had no such default option10:06
r3v3rbikonia: when I view the /etc/apache2/sites-available folder there is no default file or directory10:06
r3v3rbjust 000-default.conf and an ssl variant10:07
ikoniar3v3rb: that's correct10:07
ntzchemist^: literally all .. anyway, lets leave this .. this discussion is inane10:07
ikoniar3v3rb: it contains the default site....10:07
ikoniar3v3rb: you have to configure any additional sites10:07
r3v3rbikonia: i am trying to ;)10:07
developerikonia,  what ?10:07
ikoniar3v3rb: then why are you saying there is a default file missing ?10:07
ikoniadeveloper: pardon ?10:07
developerwhat's wrong with you..10:08
ntzdonc3: those warning are just warnings and I don't see there errors10:08
ikoniadeveloper: ? in what respect ?10:08
ntzdonc3: is there actully something what doesn't work ?10:08
r3v3rball documentation I have read suggest copying the defaullt from /etc/apache2/sites-available this file does not exist though ikonia10:08

donc3ntz: yes the sound when I connect the HDMI into the tv doesn't work10:09
developerikonia, i dont know you are10:09
ikoniadeveloper: sorry, I don't understand what you are saying10:09
r3v3rbwhich when executed returns default does not exist because it doesnt10:09
ntzdonc3: but it has in my opinion nothing to do with that line you pasted here10:09
ikoniar3v3rb: do you know how to use a pastebin ?10:09
r3v3rbikonia of course10:09
developerikonia,  you mean tooth paster?10:09
ikoniar3v3rb: could you please pastebin the output of the following command "ls -la /etc/apach2/sites-available"10:10
developeri know how to use toothpaste10:10
ikoniadeveloper: I have no idea what you are referencing, however it's nothing to do with ubuntu so please stop10:10
ntzikonia: file not found .. typo10:10
ikoniantz: oops, good spot10:10
ikoniar3v3rb: please correct my typo on apache210:10
donc3ntz: okay! and I have the problem with the sound of the hdmi, it sounds fast when I connect into the tv, and this happens in browser and in the programs..10:10
r3v3rbalready done10:10
ntzdonc3: what does please "sounds fast" mean ?10:11
r3v3rbhttp://pastebin.com/XizBgsLa ikonia10:11
ikoniar3v3rb: ok, so the default file is called 000-default.conf10:11
ntzdonc3: anyway, just to make a long story short, in your dmesg I see there nothing errorous related to hdmi10:11
ikoniar3v3rb: thats the file thats your default http config10:12

ikoniar3v3rb: so what's the exact command you are using10:12
ikoniar3v3rb: have you changed the contents of the new config file ?10:13
r3v3rbcp /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/mysite.co.uk10:13
ikoniar3v3rb: so you've updated the config in mysite.co.uk10:13
r3v3rbikonia: yes, ServerName and ServerAlias are now mysite.co.uk and www.mysite.co.uk10:13
developerntz, you there?10:13
ntzdonc3: hmm .. to be honest, hdmi might be troublesome ... i really don't know from here .. check please /var/log/messages after plugging it in and also please PA (pulseaudio) logs as well as alsa logs10:14
ikoniar3v3rb: get rid of the /10:14

r3v3rbyou have?10:19
ikoniar3v3rb: no, it's not sudo su - that is a bad command10:19
blah-blah-blah00ikonia, Thanks. Is that the same as sudo su?10:19
ikoniar3v3rb: you need to have the config file with a .conf extension10:19
ikoniablah-blah-blah00: sudo su = wrong, sudo -i = right10:19
r3v3rbffs, why does every example show without extension then?10:20
ikoniar3v3rb: examples where ?10:20
blah-blah-blah00ikonia, Okay thanks.10:20
r3v3rbikonia: various azure/vm/ubuntu setup examples10:20
ikoniar3v3rb: different versions of apache/ubuntu behave differently10:21
ikoniar3v3rb: got to find the one that matches your version10:21
r3v3rbright okay10:21
r3v3rbikonia: should i drop the .co.uk in favour of mysite.conf?10:21
ikoniar3v3rb: it's just a name, so whatever works best for you10:22
ikoniamysite.co.uk.conf will be fine, mysite.conf will be fine10:22

ratskinikonia: whats exactly is the difference between sudo su and sudo -i?10:23
ikoniaratskin: the enviornment and the way it trys/fails to source it10:24
ratskinikonia: ta. one of these where the effect i see is the same, so have never properly respected the distinction10:25
r3v3rbikonia, don’t suppose you know how to setup a mod_user tweak to view a site as ~username do you?10:34
ikoniar3v3rb: just load the mod_user module,10:34
r3v3rbikonia: okay, will do10:35
ikoniar3v3rb: I think from memory apache's modules are seperate patches in ubuntu, so if you install the mod_user package it should auto add it to the list10:35

ntzthat's weird .. check an assigned key shortcuts11:43
asumothere is only one setting, it is seperate from my brightness function which works properly11:44
asumontz where can i check it since i have no clue which program is responsible for it11:44
ntzin ccsm (if it is that compizconfig settings manager) should be assigned keys for actions11:45

MonkeytoeHello. I am running ubuntu 12.04LTS on a hyperv VM. I have attached to my linux VM a 5.97 TB .vhdx  hard disk image. I shut down my vm, made sure there were no snapshots, and then shrank the storage.vhdx image down to 5.6 TB since there was over 800 gigs free on the actual vhdx (fixed size). The actual data drive that holds the storage.vhdx image is 6TB. I then mounted it to the host OS windows11:49
Monkeytoeserver 2012, and copied some files off to check transfer speed (about 490MB/s). The transfer speed with it attached to the linux vm was down around 40 MB/s. So now that I freed up space on the data drive, and made sure the storage.vhdx image transfered at expected speed when mounted to the host OS I unmounted it from the host OS and re attached it to the linux VM. Upon starting I get UNEXPECTED11:49
MonkeytoeINCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck manually11:49
ntzasumo: http://susepaste.org/view/raw/3507451811:49
MonkeytoeErrors were found while checking the disk drive for /. Press F to attempt to fix the errors, I to ignore, S to skip mounting, or M for manual recovery.11:50
ntzMonkeytoe: yes, that expectable sideproduct of offline shrinking11:50
asumontz the brightness function works properly, this is something else...im pretty sure it is ccsm11:50
Monkeytoentz : I figured it was normal and due to that. What I didnt know is if "Pressing F to attempt to fix the errors" would start a destructive process.11:52
ntzfsck should not destroy things11:53
ntzso you can run it safely11:53
MonkeytoeSo it would be best to indeed hit F to attempt to fix the errors, or should I do some manual command?11:53
ntzyes, you can either hit F or run fsck manually11:54
Monkeytoewell that fixed it11:55
Monkeytoeall the files show up etc... but alas my shrinking did not fix its transfer speed11:57
Monkeytoeonce re attached to the VM transfer speeds drop to about 40 MB/s11:57
Monkeytoeits a gigabit network so I would at least expect it to peg out around 100 MB/s since it hits 480 MB/s attached directly to the host11:57
ntzjust curious, why do you expect that FS size has something to do with its i/o speed ?11:58

MonkeytoeI had filled up the .vhdx with less than 200 MB free. I then deleted around 900 gigs off the vhdx. I then looked at the drive that held the vhdx image and it only had about 700 MB free. I shrank it to make sure that the .vhdx filesystem wasnt getting bogged down over some automatic file system overhead that I was unaware of. So I figured since I only have around 4.9 gigs actually used on the12:02
Monkeytoevhdx, I would resize it to 5.4 gigs... thus leaving 600 gigs free on the Data drive.12:02

cornfeedhobohas anyone ever gotten this to work?? It doesnt seem to do squat. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AnonymizingNetworkMACAddresses12:13
ntzcornfeedhobo: that's nonsense12:14
cornfeedhobontz: tell that to my unchanged mac address12:14
ntzyou can set up permanently that you have some custom mac address but no need for that crap12:14
cornfeedhobontz: i think i have a decent grasp on my needs ;-)12:15
ntzcornfeedhobo: so then put one script to cron assigning every N minute new random lladdr to your iface ...12:17
ntzbut I doubt that NM will like it12:17
ntzNM == Network Manager12:17
ntzalso I doubt that your local router will like if it is sanely set up12:17
cornfeedhobontz: yeah. it wont. plus the goal is not to randomize per X time frame, but rather before each connection12:18
Icehawk78I'm having a strange issue - whenever I load certain websites which execute javascript (I've not been able to identify *what* js code is causing it, but offenders include 2048 and the current Google Rubik's cube homepage), my radon driver appears to crash, and when I try to escape to a command line, it's simply spewing 'Radeon failed to schedule IB' forever12:18
cornfeedhobothe router should be fine, assuming it's setup like every other router in the world12:18
cornfeedhoboassignments last 24hours usually, and i dont think i can cycle through 100s of macs that quickly12:19
Icehawk78However, most websites that use javscript cause no problems at all for me. Just a few specific ones.12:19
cornfeedhoboIcehawk78: what browser?12:19
ntzcornfeedhobo: that's pointless .. if you're behind nat nobody will care for your mac .. it just makes a sense only if you wish to change mac for communication between you and default gateway so I dare to say perhaps you don't have decent grasp on your needs ;)12:19
cornfeedhobontz: not true. starbucks uses merikai, which has a national data collection network12:20
cornfeedhobontz: it is *known* and *advertised* that they sell that data12:20

cornfeedhoboIcehawk78: I am wordering, i think they added a JIT, maybe it can be turned off in about:config? sorry havent used chrome in a while12:21

bubble_beamhey, i cant play certain metroska files in ubuntu12:55
bubble_beamthe audio is stream ,but not the video12:55
ntzdepends .. depends on codecs and player you use .. generally if neither vlc or mplayer is able to play it it's broken media file ;)12:56
greustbubble_beam: Do you have ubuntu restricted extras loaded?12:56
greustbubble_beam: If you have restricted extras, and it doesn't work in VLC, the video is probably broken or using some weird codec, or DRM12:57
greustgraingert: you could try a windows video player under WINE12:57
graingertgreust: I guess so, but that sounds a lot of effort, for no value12:58
bubble_beami can play it in my mobile12:58
greustno value? must be a good video then! :-)12:58
graingertgreust: I don't have a video that needs playing right now. Did you mean to ping bubble_beam instead?12:59
graingertbubble_beam: have you tried using VLC?12:59
bubble_beamgraingert, yep12:59
graingertbubble_beam: that's fairly French so should play video fine12:59
bubble_beamgraingert, vlc , smplayer, kmplayer12:59
bubble_beamnothing plays the video under ubuntu13:00
graingertbubble_beam: in that case it probably doesn't have a Video component13:00
greustbubble_beam: have you tried the metroska tools in software center?13:00
graingertbubble_beam: what does avutils think of it?13:00
bubble_beammetroska tools?13:00
greustYour phone plays it fine though, bubble_beam ? Android or ios?13:03
bubble_beammx player13:03
greustbubble_beam: What i might be tempted to do is submit the file and a bug report to VLC, so they can fix it13:05
bubble_beamvlc can play the file in windows13:05
gameraIs there any way to configure aptitude to fall back to an older package source if the current one fails?13:05
greustbubble_beam: Yea so it's a bug, and needs to be fixed.13:05
greustbubble_beam: vlc linux bug13:06
bubble_beamgamera, yep , you can manually edit them13:06
barathHi I have some video files from my macbook but I cannot seem to play them of convert the comes up with error message Videos requires to install plugins to play media files of the following type: video/x-apple-intermediate-codec decoder13:06
bubble_beamgreust, okay13:07
gamerabubble_beam: I guess I'll have to do that, but I was talking about having it work automatically, and change back to trust when that's available.13:07
barathHi I have some video files from my Macbook but I cannot seem to play them on ubuntu or convert them, I get error message Videos requires to install plugins to play media files o the following type: video/x-apple-intermediate-codec decoder13:11
greustgamera: when you mean older package source, you mean alternative source? or are you using like older ubuntu repo in a newer ubuntu?13:12
greustbarath: i dont know aything about that file format, but do you have the ubuntu restricted extras loaded?13:13
gameragreust: I meant, if a PPA with trusty in the URL 404s (which happens to me quite a bit) it would try again with saucy in place of trusty.13:13
greustgamera: That will break your OS13:13
greustgamera: use a different trusty13:13
barath@greust I have got restricted extras loaded13:14
gameragreust: what about it will break my OS? Assuming nothing I have depends on older versions of important shared libraries.13:15
greustbarath: In vlc, can you open it and see what codec is it using? that might help you to track down what player you need13:15
ntzdoes in ubuntu work ``init 3'' from dev/tty console ?13:16
greustgamera: If you know what you're doing and are very sure of your dependencies, you can get away with it, but if mess up, that's a broken OS. is it worth it? Cant you use a diferent trusty mirror?13:17
barathI've installed VLC this is the message I get No suitable decoder module:13:18
barathVLC does not support the audio or video format "icod". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.13:18
TomyWorkbarath "apple intermediate codec" sounds like something made on the fly while recording13:20
TomyWorkthat shouldnt be sent around anyway13:21
greustffmpeg claims to play it13:21
gameragreust: it's mainly single applications with few dependencies. I've done it before, but I was wondering if there was an automatic fix. (now I know why there isn't one.)13:21
barath@TomyWork their personal family videos you can hear the audio just no picture.13:22
=== satan is now known as sa`tan
TomyWorkconvert them to some other format, using whatever was used to record them.13:23
greustbarath: I've checked ffmpegs website and they say it can decode the video, so I'd recommend you perhaps try updating ffmpeg13:23
greustsec 2.3 http://ffmpeg.org/general.html13:24
bah_hi all, I have a macbook with a US keybord but use it with  swedish language.  This work fine in OSX but in ubuntu some keys are missing like  the  "<"  and ">"  signs13:24

=== bezet is now known as the_bz

IrnBru55barath: Just find a PPA with a newer version of ffmpeg, or compile it yourself. I'd recommend using a less esoteric codec in future, if possible13:27

greustlet me see what version trusty has13:28
ernest_Hello i have a question. First time installed ubuntu on my laptop. Do i have to install additional nvidia drivers for my videocard?13:29
bah_actually I should like to keep the US keymap on my keybord but change three different keys, are that possible somehow ?13:29
EarloHello, if i upgrade to 14.04 from 13.10 via the upgrade question pop-up i get every time when booting, what kind of changes will i experience?13:29
ernest_because everything is kinda laggy13:29
greusternest_: What video card is it? The new GUI needs a modern-ish GPU. if it's causing a problem you can install "Lubuntu" which is better on older hardware13:31
ernest_greust: i have nVidia GeForce GT 420M13:32
greustbarath: OK ubuntu forked ffmeg into the libav-tools package13:32
greustbarath: Try "sudo apt-get install libav-tools"13:32
bah_ernest_, you have a macbook ?13:32
ernest_bah_: no13:33
greusternest_: A quick check implies that chip works with the standard driver. You could try the 3rd party driver from "additional drivers" in the software updater. Or you could unstall Lubuntu-desktop, which uses a gui that doesn't need graphics acceleration13:34
barath@greust I tried that still not working13:35
greusternest_: Just a quick check, do you have nvidia optimus? if so, i have no idea ... sorry13:35
ernest_greust: no i dont, will try to install the 3rd party driver13:35
bah_ernest_, I thought I also had a nVidia GeForce GT 420M but I think there are  a  NVIDIA GeForce 320M card in my machine,  anyway theese drivers can drive you mad.  I have a lot of issues on my system13:38
greustbarath: Checking some more, support for that codec was added in May 17 2013. I dont know why the version bundled with ubuntu doesnt play it. perhaps Trusty has an older version than May 201313:39
ernest_bah_: aghhh i think ill intall lubuntu then. But ubuntu looks so pretty :(13:40
barathok thanks13:40
daniele_I created an hotspot wireless with this script : http://www.webupd8.org/2014/02/how-to-set-up-unlocator-dns-under-linux.html . All work fine. Now I would create a vpn and share the vpn with all mobile devices that I will connect in wireless. How can I do?13:42
daniele_sorry the correct link for the guide is http://www.webupd8.org/2013/06/how-to-set-up-wireless-hotspot-access.html13:45
ntzdaniele_: irc is not a good tool for providing you accurate step-by-step manual .. just ggl what you need, follow that article and ask in case of troubles with particular step13:47
HoiheSorry, wrong channel13:48
daniele_ntz, ookk, I rephrase the question, I create an hotspot wireless, how can I share this connection with a vpn13:49
ernest_so i've installed nvidia drivers but now the screen randomly goes black, any ideas?13:51
ntzdaniele_: perhaps I don't understand to what you want .. what does vpn have with hotspot ?13:51
ernest_fixed the lag though13:51
raubdaniele_: Do you want to have the vpn and the wireless in the same network?13:51
raubOr you want to be able to runa  vpn inside the wireless connection?13:51
daniele_raub, I created a virtual hotspot on ubuntu and I want that all my mobile devices connect to virtual hotspot can use a vpn13:54
daniele_ntz, sorry but I don't speak english very well13:55
raubntz: I think daniele_ just want to be able to have a vpn that can be reached through wireless13:56
daniele_raub, yess!!13:57
daniele_raub, but not from the modem wireless, but from virtual AP created on ubuntu13:58
raubdaniele_: the virtualAP is an interface as fas as ubuntu is concerned13:59
raubSo, something like https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OpenVPN would be a good start13:59
raubdaniele_: note you will need to change the interface to fit your needs14:00
raubdaniele_: just to be sure, when you say virtualap you mean virtual access point, right?14:01
daniele_raub, yes14:01
raubHere's another pretty link: http://www.instructables.com/id/Host-Your-Own-Virtual-Private-Network-VPN-with-O/14:01
raubdaniele_: I googled for "ubuntu openvpn virtual access point"14:02
daniele_I shoud this for connect chromecast and mobile devices in no US contry and be able to view netflix US14:02
daniele_raub, my router 3g don't support vpn and therfore I created a virtual AP14:03
raubdaniele_: those links I gave you should get you started. Or at least in the right direction14:04
daniele_raub, okkk, but openvpn is a protocol or application?14:05
ntzopenvpn is application14:06
ntzor better said daemon14:06
=== bng_ is now known as bng
raubdaniele_: the more you describe your problem, the more I wonder that what you want is (1) have a vpn tunnel going somewhere in the US and then (2) connect (brdige) that to your virtual access point thingie14:06
daniele_ntz, okkk14:06
raubntz: what do you think of my non-caffeinated theory?14:07
daniele_raub, correct14:07
raubdaniele_: that is even easier to do14:08
daniele_raub, good ;)14:08
raubdaniele_: do you have the vpn going to the US up and running?14:09
ntzraub: sorry, i was doing someithing else ... i just checked only very fastly what happens here14:09
daniele_raub, no at the moment14:10
=== miller is now known as paperman

bitikinDoes ubuntu leave some kind of install note on the harddisk after installation?14:11

bitikinraub, yes14:12
ehuhi!  If you have user accounts authenticated with LDAP (say), and use nss tables other than passwd to store user information, then you find that the system automatically creates an entry in the user account database on login. This is handy: it means the user gets listed by lightdm in the greeter, for example.  However, these users cannot be deleted. If you use the accounts-daemon from the control center to remove them, you get that the user isn't in /etc/passwd14:13
KGM70daniele_, recommend PIA VPN14:13
raubdaniele_: whatever vpn service you use will create an interface in your computer. Then you need to enable packet forwarding and then create some firewall rules to forward all traffic from ap to the tunnel14:13
raubdaniele_: I would probably also do NAT so the vpn people do not get very pissed14:14
raubehu: could you explain it again? AFAIK, a ldap user should not be in /etc/passwd14:15
daniele_raub, ookk but How do... :)14:16
daniele_how to create a vpn, ok I can do, but how enable packet forwarding mmmm, I don't know14:16
ehuraub: When user connect through LDAP, automatically creates a user in a system. It seems that it use for cache credentials. So, when user disconnect, the user still listed in the system as normal user, and i cannot delete it14:17
raubehu: there is something funky configured in your machine. I do ldap and have crap for caching credentials and it does not create an entry in /etc/passwd14:18

afidegnumhi ll, anyone familiar with zentyal ?14:19

raubehu: Do oyu wan tto remove the user from said machine or from ldap alltogether?14:20

KGM70daniele_, it has over 20 servers around the world and most are quite fast, you can research which ones are fastest closest to you.14:20

raubdaniele_: Htbrddtp://stackoverflow.com/questions/10275953/how-to-redirect-packets-received-from-one-network-interface-to-another-network-i14:21
ehuraub: yes14:21
raubehu: here is the issue: you can just go and delete /home/crazy-user, but as soon as crazy-user logs back in the homedir will be created14:22
raubso you need to not allow him to log back in14:22
raubeither in LDAP or at the local level. Whichever you prefer14:22

ehuwhen the user leaves the machine on and off, the user is still created in the system, but not in / etc / passwd14:26

raubehu: yes. What is the problem?14:26
raubehu: I now officially donot know what you want to accomplish14:26
ehuraub: I can get to accumulate hundreds of users created in the system, but i cannot delete them14:27
raubWhy not?14:27
ehuraub: because it says that the users are not in /etc/passwd14:27
raubAnd what you mean by deleting them? Their homedir?14:27
ehuno only their homedir, user account center i see them14:28

ehuin the advanced settings, user management14:28

neongasI've started xubuntu 14.04 from from its ISO image saved on my HDD, using grub loopback. I am trying to install to another partition of same HDD. But the installer says "failed to unmount /isodevice; needs to commit changes to partition tables, but cannot do so because one partition in mounted". I didn't ask it to create/resize/delete any partition.15:09

OerHeksneongas, you cannot install on the same disk with the iso, the installer needs to unmount it to make partitions15:10

neongasOerHeks, I think I've done it with 12.04 version15:14
neongasOerHeks, It should not need to unmount all other partitions,  just to format one.15:15

When I select reboot, all peripherals get disconnected, but the case fans and CPU fan stay on.

Node_448ubuntu drivers are worse than aids16:56
kfizz_prodnix, I don't think so. I've even let the computer sit for 10 minutes after shut down to see if that was the case.16:56

Beldarrra, You save the bootinfo summary from bootrepair?17:50
Dreadlishpaperman: i dont have any issues17:51

papermanthe only thing I can think of is I didn't specify any swap space during install17:51

robbieI have a solution in my system's local wiki for adding 5.1 to this system from years ago, on the 12.04 build I think, but by now I don't think I should have to go and configure custom drivers from pulseaudio-ac3's alsa-lib17:52

Beldarallen, Cool, there is the #ubuntu-offtopic, and ##linux are two I can think of. ;)17:59
robbieQuestion: how do I use my system's 5.1 audio instead of sterio?17:59
daftykinspaperman: hold left shift just before your system is about to boot from the hard disk, then look for the memtest boot option18:00
robbieJohnOliverIsAwes: does "netstat -rn" have a destination at the top?18:00
papermanRobbilie: under sound setting you can change from stereo to 5.118:00
robbiepaperman: it doesn't show up18:00

hplosercan lubuntu do what ubuntu can do as far as for the normal user..?18:01

daftykinsJohnOliverIsAwes: you haven't run my two commands yet.18:03
robbieJohnOliverIsAwes:  does it have flags "UG" and point to the Same iface as the 192.168 destination?18:04
hplosercan lubuntu do what ubuntu can do as far as for the normal user..?18:05
JohnOliverIsAwesrobbie - Yeah! It's like you're looking at my laptop!18:05
Beldarhploser, yes, just a bit more configs than gui to tweak18:05
daftykinsrobbie: really, DNS is far more likely18:06
robbieJohnOliverIsAwes: sounds like the router has to be configured to allow your machine to connect to the internet -- they might be using MAC address restrictions or something18:06
Beldarhploser, You are linked to the ubuntu repos with lubuntu, it is all there.18:06
hploserBeldar, Well, Ubuntu 13.10 is feeling sluggish, everything slow to open and reaction time is bad...18:06
robbiedaftykins, JohnOliverIsAwes - daftykins is right -- I was assuming a network issue because he said everyoneone else's connection (and their DNS) were working18:07
hploserBeldar, This system has 2.8GB ram..I thought it should be able to run Ubuntu fast and with no problem, but something doesn't feel right.18:07

daftykinsfranzhblake: please ask with detail on one line18:24
qwebirc589068daftykins - Definitely installing Ubuntu. But it doesn't help if the net doesn't work.18:24
qwebirc589068daftykins - And just as I say that..it's back and working magically..18:24
skinuxI have 'home', 'www' and 'opt' directories on a separate partition and have removed software since the warnings started happening.18:24
qwebirc589068daftykins - let me run the same terminal commands and check if anything changed18:24
daftykinsqwebirc589068: is the flash drive 12.04.4 ?18:24

skinux31.6GB total, says 29.1 used right now18:26
daftykinsskinux: can you pastebin "df -h" ?18:26
Beldarskinux, You should not have that full period to be honest ssd or not, a ssd actually is supposed to have a unused space.18:26
qwebirc589068daftykins - no... it's LTS18:27
daftykinsfranzhblake: hmm, some logs if possible would be handy but kernel panics are out of my experience i'm afraid.18:27

skinuxBeldar: The disk should'n't be full.18:33
franzhblakeyep, I know it's a photo, but I don't have more18:34
skinuxPart of my problem is that two days ago Ubuntu warned less than 30MB was available, but yesterday warned I only had 1.1GB. It doesn't make any sense at all since I hadn't added anything to the system.18:34
franzhblakeskinux, I didn't read all your problem, may it be related to cache or similar? perhaps you did and update two days ago, then yesterday you rebooted and flushed cache or /tmp and you gained almost 1gb18:35
Voyagehow can I access a remote ms access database?18:35
Beldarskinux, Yeah, you are risking a completely filling it with just error logs, and HD in general "although many will argue this" have a percentile used below 98%, 10% to 30% empty has been the idea. And ten percent of a ssd should not be formatted per the link I gave you.18:36
michaelaguiarIf I need to give users ftp access, is it better to create then a shell account, for SFTP, or just setup an FTP server?18:36

franzhblakeI know it's not official, but I can't believe that any other kernel apart from official (and this one is vanilla from ubuntu kernel team afaik) can cause a kernel panic18:42

RoelBeldar: I 'm using Lubuntu, but technically I believe that is Ubuntu18:57
tgm4883Roel: what did you create?18:57
BeldarRoel, yes, same question, you at the least would have to join ubuntu, and go from there, outside offers I doubt will even get an answer.18:57
Roeltgm4883: I have created a Gothic keyboard. You can select it from the keyboard lay-outs and directly use it to type in Gothic18:58
tgm4883Roel: is it just a package you install?18:58
RoelHow can I turn it into a package?18:58
RoelI know which files need to be changed, but I don't know how to create packages, I would need to learn that18:58
RoelI also wonder if you can translate the ubuntu operating system18:59
Beldarviva Diamanda Galás the goth Queen.18:59
tgm4883Roel: so you'll need to get it packaged. I'm going to point you here, as I believe it's the standard starting place for developers now  http://developer.ubuntu.com/19:00
skinuxI just tried trim manual, it didn't work.19:00
tgm4883Roel: if that doesn't give you info on packaging and getting it into the repos, then we can discuss packaging in general19:00
Roelok thanks19:01
tgm4883Roel: minimally, you'll want to get a launchpad account, then you can push your packaging up their for testing.19:01
Jordan_URoel: To get it included in Ubuntu, I would recommend trying to get it included as far upstream as possible. So first figure out what package normally ships keyboard layouts, then look at that package in Debian and see what upstream project they get their files from (or if the upstream is Debian itself), and submit a patch adding your new layout to the final upstream.19:01
RoelJordan_U: Can you explain that in simple words to a noob19:02
RoelJordan_U: upstream projects = the last projects ??19:02
Beldarskinux, You have multiple partitions on sda, did you make sure you ran that trim correctly? I have the feeling you are just ignoring the obvious here I have shared.19:03
tgm4883Roel: if you do a "dpkg -S <path to file>" on one of the files you need to change, you can see which package that is in. Then from there, you can find out where the package comes from19:04
tgm4883Roel: ideally, you wouldn't submit a patch for it to Ubuntu, you'd submit the patch to the original project19:04
RoelSo I should look for Ubuntu Keyboard Layouts project?19:04
tgm4883Roel: for instance, if you patched Gnome, you would submit the patch to Gnome, not Ubuntu19:04
tgm4883Roel: no, you should run that above command on one of the files and see what package it's in. Then we look to see where that package comes from19:05
Roelok I will do it, one second19:05
RoelIt doesn't work, do I first have to install Ubuntu developer tools?19:06
RoelI get this result:19:06
tgm4883Roel: no. Are you getting an error message?19:06
Roelat first it did nothing but now it says:19:07
Roelxkb-date: /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules19:07
Roelthat's the path, it echoes it.19:07
michaelaguiarin my network interfaces, should my LAN address be included in the dns-nameservers range?19:07
tgm4883Roel: yes, that is actually what we want to see19:07
tgm4883Roel: so the package "xkb-date" is what put that file there19:07
RoelSo we are looking for the xkb-date package?19:08
tgm4883Roel: Do you have any PPA's or installed packages from elsewhere? I don't see that package in the official repos19:09
tgm4883!info xkb-date19:09
ubottuPackage xkb-date does not exist in trusty19:09
RoelWell, I installed ibus, xkb might be installed too19:10
RoelI don't know anymore, to be honest19:10
michaelaguiarSo I use PPTPD for VPN, but when I VPN in, I don’t seem to have access to the internal network19:11
michaelaguiarIn my LAN interface, I have my dns-domain set for LAN19:12
michaelaguiardo I need to set the DNS domain for WAN as well?19:12
tgm4883Roel: is it xkb-date or xkb-data19:12
tgm4883!info xkb-data19:12
ubottuxkb-data (source: xkeyboard-config): X Keyboard Extension (XKB) configuration data. In component main, is important. Version 2.10.1-1ubuntu1 (trusty), package size 287 kB, installed size 2836 kB19:12
Roelxkb-date, not xkb-data19:12
Roelno wait19:13
RoelNOT xkb-date19:13
tgm4883Roel: yea that is what it is on mine :)19:13
Roelit's for me the same too19:13
michaelaguiaranyone familiar with PPTPD?19:13
Roelso if I want to help those guys by adding the Gothic keyboard to xkb-date, how can I do that?19:14
Roelsince it's not part of the official release I guess19:14
Mikerhinosif I have a "/" and a "/home" partition on separated drives, when I install an app, will it be on the "/" or "/home" drive ?19:14
BeldarMikerhinos, most likely a bit in both, what is the issue?19:15
SamizdataI would say app in / and configs in /home.  That is, of course, based on the idea he is installing it system wide and not just a personal install.19:16
tgm4883Roel: ok, so that looks like it comes from debian. http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/xkb-data  You've got a few options. Upstream for that package is going to be the freedesktop devs (  http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/XKeyboardConfig/ )  So ideally, that is where you could send a patch so that it is now available in all distros that use freedesktop.19:17
tgm4883If they won't accept it, your next bet is to contact the maintainer of the package (see the first link) and talk with them regarding the patch19:17
SamizdataIs there any news on getting Empathy working with Facebook?19:17
RoelOk, but first I would need to make a patch for that19:17
Roelis it difficult to learn? As I have 0% experience.19:17
tgm4883Roel: it's not difficult to learn, but I don't have any links handy on it19:18
MikerhinosBeldar: not really an issue, just that my "/" is on a RAID-0 420mo/s reading, and my "/home" is on a 90mo/s reading HDD lol, I want speed for launching apps, but not killing my SSDs by writing too much on it, and use my HDD as a storing drive for my settings, videos, photos etc...19:18
RoelDo I need this? http://developer.ubuntu.com/apps/sdk/tutorials/creating-an-sdk-app-project/19:18
tgm4883Roel: no you don't need that19:19
BeldarMikerhinos, statistically a modern ssd has an equal life to a spinning HD.19:19
RoelWhat do I need to write a patch? Just a simple text editor?19:19
=== raja is now known as Guest24029
bekksMikerhinos: Unless your SSD is about 10y old today, you wont kill by writing too much onto it.19:19
MikerhinosBeldar: in fact I'd want to have my system and apps on the RAID-0, and personnal files like settings, photos etc... on the HDD.19:19
tgm4883Roel: Well, basically you get the source, copy it to a second (working directory), make the changes you need to make, and then run diff on the directory19:20
tgm4883Roel: that will make a patch (or rather, you run 'diff > my.patch')19:20
MikerhinosSSDs are Intel 320 40Go, so 2x40Go, it's not that much, it's not the latest technology, but in RAID-0 it's pretty quick19:20
RoelI 'm sorry, but this is incomprehensible for me.19:20
BeldarMikerhinos, Sure, I have no knowledge of raid, so that is your thang, not sure I can help beyond this.19:20
tgm4883Roel: How many files did  you need to change19:21
RoelDo I also have to include one file which you need to ADD and not MODIFY?19:22
tgm4883Roel: just modified files19:22
Roelshould the file to add also be in the patch?19:22
Roel7 files19:22
SamizdataSo, nothing on Empathy/Facebook then.19:23
Roelin fact it could be that only 4 are needed, but I modified 7 files to be 100% sure that it will work.19:23
tgm4883Roel: can you run that same dpkg -S command on the 7 files and see if they are all part of the same package19:24
RoelWell, one of the files is an ibus file19:24
Roelso I can already see they are not all of the same package most likely19:24
RoelI will run a dpkg on it19:24
tgm4883how many different packages19:24
Roelibus, and xkb-data19:25
Roelthose are the two packages to change19:25
tgm4883Roel: good. Ok, so now the hard part19:26
SamizdataWell, cheers, all.19:26
Roelwriting a patch?19:26
tgm4883Roel: I'm going to give you the basics of doing a patch, but then you're going to have to read through their rules for patch submission and such   http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/XKeyboardConfig/Development/19:27
tgm4883Roel: basically (and keep in mine that this is all from my limited patch writing experience), you need to checkout their repo (makes a copy of their source files on your desktop), then you can copy the repo into a second directory (this second directory is where you will make your changes and add any new files you have), then you'll run the diff command (eg.19:30
tgm4883'diff <SOURCEDIR> <MODIFIEDDIR> > my.patch') that will make a file called my.patch that will have all of your changes19:30
tgm4883Roel: where this gets difficult, is that the files you are changing may not be where you are expecting them in the source. Unfortunatlely I don't know much about that package19:31
RoelSo I guess19:32
RoelI need to download the code?19:32
tgm4883Roel: well first read though their rules for patch submission. They might have some other info or pointers for doing the patch19:32
tgm4883Roel: but generally yes, you need to download their sourcecode19:33

thumbeenew to ubuntu. is there a quick way to load up a pre-configured color scheme so i can see filenames/folders easier? as oppose to manually setting 1 color at a time?19:36
thumbeeright now its all just black/white bash terminal19:36
soultitaniumHi, I'm having some trouble with a new version of ubuntu server (14.04) vs an old version (8) as I'm running the same custom application on both of them (same hardware) and the one with 8 shows cpu usage of about 30% - does that seem reasonable?19:36
soultitaniumI'd like to upgrade to 14, but I can't have that much loss in performance19:37
rickestthumbee: terminals themselves are responsible for setting their primary fore/background colors.  google 'LS_COLORS' to find different themes for using ls19:38
Jordan_Usoultitanium: What do you mean by "CPU usage of about 30%"?19:38
thumbeefor example.. background color, filename color, folder color. im sure there's a way to manually change it all 1 at a time. but looking for a quick way to load up some template ? ie. someone did that all for me already19:38
thumbeeah LS_COLORs ok19:39
masoud_hi all19:39
masoud_i need laf for grub in ubuntu. whos is help me?19:39
soultitaniumJordan_U, when I look at top, it shows all the tasks that are running. our app (irtracker), under the cpu column is using 114 on ubuntu 14 and 70 on ubuntu 819:39
soultitaniumJordan_U, sorry, I meant to say it's a difference of 30%...19:40
path_of_exiledisplay server Mir uses license GPLv319:40
soultitaniumJordan_U, I'd like to upgrade all of these boxes running our custom app to the newest version of ubuntu, but it doesn't seem right that there such a difference in processor utilization between the two different OSes.  I was hoping someone might be able to suggest somewhere to look to see if there's an obvious configuration error that I'm making19:41
tgm4883soultitanium: that sounds odd. Was their any customization done to the server? A 30% loss of performance while running on the same hardware for Ubuntu server sounds weird19:41
tgm4883soultitanium: since it's a custom app, the only people that could tell you where to look is... um... you19:42
soultitaniumtgm4883, it does sound weird!  I install it, install vsftpd, telnetd, build-essentials, and setserial and copy the files over19:42
Jordan_Usoultitanium: Is your application actually performing less well, or is it only using less CPU? Using less CPU but performing just as well is possible for many applications, and would clearly be a good rather than a bad thing.19:42
tgm4883Jordan_U: my understanding is it's using more CPU, not less on trusty19:43
soultitaniumJordan_U, it still seems to be performaing well...19:43
soultitaniumtgm4883, more cpu on trusty, less on ubuntu 819:43
tgm4883Jordan_U: ^19:43
Jordan_Usoultitanium: OK, is it using more CPU for the same tasks, or is it performing more tasks per unit time?19:44
tgm4883Jordan_U: +1, good question19:44
soultitaniumJordan_U, sorry, I'm a bit confused by your question.  The program is just one task - is that the answer you were looking for?19:44
thumbeeis LS_COLORs for ubuntu?19:45
tgm4883soultitanium: lets say on Ubuntu 8, it processes 10000 records in 10 seconds and uses 50% CPU, but on Ubutnu 14 is processes 10000 records in 5 seconds but only uses 75% CPU. Obviously the second one is running better, even though it's using more CPU19:46
tgm4883soultitanium: and again, we're just making general guesses about your custom app19:46
Jordan_Usoultitanium: No. For instance if your custom application were calculating digits of pi, and on Ubuntu 8.04 (there is no "Ubuntu 8") it was calculating 1,000 digits per second, and on Ubuntu 14.04 (again, not just 14) it was calculating 10,000 digits per second, but using twice the CPU cycles per second, that would be an overall improvement.19:47
Jordan_Usoultitanium: What does this app actually do?19:47
soultitaniumtgm4883, ahhh.. yes, I understand.  This is a time-sensitive application that pulls frames from our gigabit camera, processes those frames, and sends information to the server.  So if the main loop timing gets longer than 5ms, we're in trouble.  so, I could look at that timing between the two of them and let you know if it's different19:47
tgm4883soultitanium: yea, lets see if it's processing them faster but using more CPU19:48
soultitaniumso the application always needs to be able to process about 178 frames per second, and as long as we can keep up with that, we're good..19:48
tgm4883soultitanium: sweet, any way you can bench test how many FPS it can process?19:49
soultitaniumOk.. the programmers put some timing information in there so lemme see if that processing time is faster on ubuntu 8 than 14.. I'll take a look and let you know.19:49
tgm4883soultitanium: which is almost exactly the scenario that Jordan_U mentioned19:49
Jordan_Usoultitanium: Please stop talking about versions of Ubuntu that don't exist. There is 8.04 and 8.10, and there is 14.04 and (in development) 14.10. There is no Ubuntu 8, and no Ubuntu 14.19:50
soultitaniumtgm4883, I think it might be difficult to recode the software because everything is synchronized to a trigger..... so all I can do is see how fast it processes the data per frame, but I think they have that timing information in there so it should be a pretty quick test.. lemme check19:50
soultitaniumJordan_U, the versions are 14.04 and 8.04...19:51

soultitaniumHi, I was here ealier testing a custom application on two systems (identical hardware), one running ubuntu 8.04 and the other 14.04.  We noticed that the main program loop runs a hair faster (.1 ms) on 14.04 vs 8.04, but it's using about 20% more cpu to do it.  Can I attribute this very slightly faster processing, yet higher cpu utilization to OS optimization from 8.04 to 14.04?20:45

adamcunningtonHi, xclip seems to behave inconsistently, often when i type some_command | pastebinit | xclip, nothing is copied to my clipboard, any ideas / how can I debug?21:57
ramkamxheard about something like that a long time ago, but cant remember, and it's hard to find21:57
ramkamxadamcunnington: try somecommand > somefile.txt21:58
ramkamxand check the output, maybe your command output is not on stdout but on stderr21:59
Ugb3Jordan_U: I got it to work, I added the corect hardware reference in /etc/pulse/default.pa21:59

harumphhey guys, i'm installing ubuntu alongside windows xp. when i'm "trying" ubuntu with the install media, wired and wireless internet connections work fine. when it's fully installed, can't get either ethernet or wifi working. any ideas why?22:25
daftykinsharumph: you're installing with "download latest updates" enabled, so something changes between your install media and the final install22:27
harumphmust be it. i'll try installing without enabling latest updates to see.22:28
Bashing-omharumph: Maybe NOT select "3rd party software" also .22:30
harumphBashing-om: I'll give it a shot.22:31
Guest43008Bashing-om: I can't install anything now I don't have any connection even though I am connected to Wifi22:31
Guest43008I even changed my DNS server22:32
Guest43008I guess I will just try a fresh install22:32
Bashing-omGuest43008: Sirry, my bad ! .. do in terminal -> cat /etc/resolv.conf <- do you see 2 lines similar "nameserver
Guest43008Bashing-om: It says "nameserver"22:34
Bashing-omGuest43008: I expect this is but a simple config issue. Not a reason to (RE-)install.22:34
Bashing-omGuest43008: See, a config issue. OK, is this a "managed Network" ? such that you have the icons in the task bar ? ( can enable DNS from there).22:36

erlisbasically I cannot install "starter-kit"22:37
erlisIt's failing with message Wrong type argument: listp, "No commentary"22:37
Bashing-omGuest43008: Ask'd another way, do you have a standard desktop installation of ubuntu ?22:38
erlisanyone with emacs24 ?22:38
Guest43008Bashing-om: Yes just the standard 14.04 desktop installation (amd64)22:38
Bashing-omGuest43008: Be aware, I do not run with a "managed network", nor have I got 14.04 installed; so a bit of flying by the seat of our pants. In the tak bar you should have network icons - as 2 arrows in opposing directions, right click -> wired connection -> edit connection.22:41

jostdaftykins: it's a cloud server22:47
daftykinsah i see22:48
daftykinsi am of no use then, sorry22:48
ki7mtjost, if this is a hosted server, you need to speak with the host provider on how / if they configure 6to4 or 4to6, but here's the basics of enabling ports, it can be much more complex: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW22:54
harumphugh. installing without recent updates and 3rd party software didn't fix the issue - still no wireless or wired connection after install. any other reasons why running the install media would have working networks but not when installed?22:54
Bashing-omGuest43008: How are you doing ? Have you found the nameserver fields ?22:58
ntzharumph: depends.. does `ip a' command print something other than "lo" interface ?22:58
Beldarharumph, Run in the ubuntu terminal lspci and find the ethernet and wifi hardware and ket us know what it is22:59

gt8ost4li need help how do i get to the commandline in eclipse23:15
ki7mtMegabyte, I would and do, but what I want, and what I want, and other want, may be two different things. This is really OT for Ubuntu channel, probably better for #ubuntu-offtopic23:15
gotxidaftykins: i have a ISW raid 0 of 2 discs, the only way i can mount it is with the gnome automount, if i try to manually mount it it is mounted as read only23:15
admin1i need to rdp in to my windows 8 pc any program best for that23:16
gotxii would like to mount it manually with /etc/fstab or with some command in etc/rc.local23:16
Megabyteki7mt, don't you think Ubuntu would benefit from better documentation? Or do you think it is well-documented?23:16
ki7mtwhoops, that used to work.. LOL..23:16
daftykinsgotxi: hmm, intel chipset RAID-0? nasty. i don't think that's without risk23:16
superlouMegabyte, Ubuntu is a huge project.  There's pieces that could use better documentation, but there's also a huge community that is constantly providing updates23:17
gotxidaftykins: i managed to mount it creating a new dev/mapper device with "#ldmtool create all" command, and then clicking over it in nautilus, and gnome auto mount does it23:17
superlouTo the end user, it's not much different than any other OS.23:18
Megabytesuperlou, that is true... Ubuntu has a huge community23:18
ki7mtMegabyte, Yes I do, and Im part of the docs team, but there is a a channel for that, ubuntu-doc and ubuntu-manual23:18
gotxidaftykins: but i need to do that click to mount it, if i mount it with a manual mount, it mounts as read only, besides it has rw in the mount23:18
daftykins^indeed please move all non-support talk to those other channels23:18
gotxidaftykins: i would like to auto mount it when system starts without me doing that click in nautilus. It is posible?23:20
daftykinsgotxi: i have no experience with the ldmtool you mentioned so i don't see how you would do that23:23
daftykinsis one click really too much? :)23:23
gotxithe idea is to have a media streaming system without screen mouse or keyboard, so yes, it is a problem for me to do that click23:24
gotxiit would be really weird to do a vnc connection just for doing one click, besides it should mount it correctly23:25
daftykinswhy is an NTFS RAID-0 used in a Linux system then? :)23:25
daftykinsit'd be fine if the RAID were created with native tools23:25
gotxii have almost 4 tb of data in that raid, i cant burn it to dvd or upload to dropbox23:26

HotSwapit is, but i they havent pushed 14.04 out to LTS clients yet23:35
HotSwapthat will happen later23:35
HotSwapso if you want to force it now, gotta -d it23:35
HotSwapor such is my recollection from what i did this the other week23:35

Yeluanom, maybe not a ubuntu problem => http://www.qualitylogoproducts.com/lib/why-monitors-display-different-colors.htm23:35
Beldarjon-work, The LTS even though released is still a development till july with the official LTS upgrade.23:36
HotSwapjon-work, they decided to wait for the first point release i think23:36
HotSwapmakes sense since lts is supposed to be rock solid23:36
HotSwapand, for example, try to install zentyal on 14.04 (why im here now)23:37
buugotxi: Ok, so since I'm just coming in here, what happens when you try to mount the device created by ldm create all23:37
daftykinsHotSwap: do not recommend running release upgrades with -d, at some point that will update people to 14.10 instead.23:38
HotSwapdaftykins, then what's the appropriate way to upgrade to 14.04 now?23:38
gotxiroot@deimux:~# mount -t ntfs /dev/mapper/ldm_vol_PHOBOS-Dg0_Volume1 /media/gotxi/Datos/ -> and it mounts well, i can read it but i cant write on it23:38
daftykinsgotxi: ah, maybe just add -o rw23:39
buugotxi: Can you mount ntfs-3g instead?23:39
ki7mtCheck cat /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades |grep ^Prompt  that should stay as lts .. unless your willing test.23:39
BeldarHotSwap, 5 years support, the official update is in july.23:40
Beldarer upgrade23:40
gotxiok that seems to work :) i can create and delete files23:40
HotSwap"you can't do it" is never an answer I'll give :P23:40
buugotxi: which worked?23:41
ki7mtIf you want to upgrade to 1.40 now, use -d thencheck to ensure Prompt-lts is set again.23:41
ki7mtto 14.04 sri23:41
gotxintfs-3g also seems to work23:41
=== dfs is now known as Guest58961
gotxi-t ntfs and -t ntfs-3g both worked23:41
buuOh well23:41
gotxiwith the -o rw option23:41
buuThat does seem like a useful option.23:42
feitinge1gotxi: you'll probably ignore me, but you should think about backing up or moving your data to other disks since disks normally fail before 5 years and most good disks won't last longer than 6 years23:43
feitinge1gotxi: install smartmontools and do smartctl -AiH /dev/sda to check the health to at least get a warning23:44
Schnabeltierchensetting up an ubuntu system, needing to do all the typing on an tablet-keyboard, cause i was running out of normal usb-keyboards... now my fingers feel twisted, broken and raped...23:44
BeldarHotSwap, None of your comments on this upgrade were said with any real clarity other than the -d that is all we want here, clear concise informed help.23:44
gotximaybe, but i cant backup 4 tb, i dont have that space. Most i have in those disks are movies and games, i can redownload them if the disks fail, but i wont buy more while these work23:44
ki7mtAny good data recovery plan has at least 2 methods / levels of reduncy23:44
feitinge1ki7mt: so raid+tapes? but raid isn't backup :P23:46
ki7mtIf you can't do a full back up, at least get the mission critical stuff onto some other media.23:46
Jeeves_Mosshow do I connect my USB 3G modem to the Bell canada netwrok from the cli?23:46
Schnabeltierchengotxi, i went to my local computer dealer and borrowed an external drive for this... copied all data from my nas to the external, fixed my nas and deleted/formated the ext and gave it back without needing it, cause no data were lost while fixing my nas :D23:46
ki7mtfeitinge1, it's up to the CIO as to what is acceptable for recovery, but "anything" is better that "nothing"23:47
gotxifor that, i should borrow a couple of  2tb usb drives, or 4 1tb usb drives, i dont know anyone who can borrow me that :(23:48
Schnabeltierchengotxi is there an pc dealer/shop in your neightbourhood?23:48
gotxiyes, 4 or 5 stores23:48
YeluWasn't gotxi telling us, that his backup/recovery strategy in case of emergency is called "cloud"? - I think, he's quite aware of his situation ...23:49
feitinge1gotxi: as ki7mt says, at least copy your photos and stuff you don't want to lose out somewhere23:49
Schnabeltierchengo, ask and offer some money for renting an hdd23:49
gotxiah, those are backed up, dont worry :) small and important data is easy to backup23:49
Schnabeltierchenthe guy in the shop borrowed me an hdd for free, cause i´m doing all my pc shopping in there :D23:49
ki7mtThat's a good point, even cloud storage, all be it slow,  is a cheap alternative to hardware solutions.23:50
gotxii have a personal account on mega.co.nz and also i burned them on dvd23:50
gotxii do all my computer shopping on amazon, in the stores is too expensive :P23:50
Schnabeltiercheni don´t like online-shopping....23:50
gotxihere in spain is the only way to save cash, stores are way too expensive for our wages23:51
Schnabeltiercheni like talking with the guys in the shop, get some pieces for free, cause the owner likes me....23:51
ki7mtgotxi, I think that's the case just about everywhere unfortunately.23:51
