darkangelIs it easyer to setup a website server usin a Router or is it easyer to setup with out 1?00:19
k2everest_Wich kind of router we are talking about?00:20
k2everest_Oh yeah. I tought it. I think that u can yes. I cant see why not.00:21
darkangelReal pain i can figure every thing out how to Setup Apache server up i just cant figure out the router and what IP to use Ubuntu has many00:23
k2everest_Explain better. Router always mask with 127.x.x q00:24
k2everest_But your ip is not this ip.00:25
k2everest_Check your ip .00:25
darkangelWell with my router it says my IP is 10.0.0.* but I dont thank thats the real 100:25
k2everest_It is notb00:25
tacWhat is the /opt directory for?00:26
k2everest_Check in some website google . Whats my ip00:26
tac(or more generally, where can I go to read what the top-level directories are for in Ubuntu?)00:26
Glorfinde|or some such thing00:27
darkangelthanks... and /opt Directery as i can tell is for Default Ubuntu Games database00:27
darkangelwhere ur games get installed to when u install from Ubuntu software center00:28
Glorfinde|if I logout on the gui will it logout my sessions on the ttys?00:28
Busserltac: since there is no standard, each package might use them differntly.00:28
TJ-tac see https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/installation-guide/amd64/directory-tree.html00:29

ubottutac: An explanation of how files and directories are organized on Ubuntu, and how they can be manipulated, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LinuxFilesystemTreeOverview  see also: man hier00:32
BusserlTJ-: But Ubuntu guis probably look for "bad" practices in its repos as good as they can.00:32
ubottuThe graphical user interface (GUI) in Ubuntu is composed of many elements, including the !X server, a window manager, and a desktop environment such as !GNOME or !KDE (which themselves use the !GTK and !Qt toolkits respectively)00:33
darkangelIn the website hosting progress in the part it says <VirtualHost *:80> could u put Port 80 part as * and it will use any port?00:34
blahlblahgood day all, I have a bit of a stupid problem that i made for myself, because ubuntu didnt have an alternate install cd i installed lubuntu, then installed ubuntu-desktop package, works fine except that now the gnome/unity software that needs to authenticate doesnt actually prompt to auth, and therfore doesnt work due to it not having permissions00:34
blahlblahany idea how to fix it?00:34
TJ-Glorfinde|: Do you mean the Virtual Terminals tty1-tty6 (available via Alt+Ctrl+F1-F6)- if so, then no, because the GUI runs usually on tty700:35
Glorfinde|ok, thanks00:35
Glorfinde|and yes that is what I meant :)00:35
Guest22041darkangel: https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/vhosts/examples.html#default00:36
peterrooneydarkangel: No.  You must state which port the web server is to use.00:36
TJ-Glorfinde|: the X server is started on tty7 ... a separate login session00:36
boohEverytime I boot, I'm on console text... even if I do dpkg-reconfigure gdm and point to lightdm, same thing in /etc/X11/default... set to /usr/sbin/lightdm00:36
Glorfinde|oh, duh, that would be logical seeing how I have to login to each tty :facepalm:00:37
darkangelOk thank u00:37
TJ-booh: does the kernel command-line include the "text" parameter? Is the lightdm Upstart service enabled?00:38
boohYes for "text"00:38
boohI just change it for splash quiet00:38
TJ-booh: "text" prevents lightdm from starting00:39
kristenbbcan someone please help me to configure the video driver ? i can't log in...00:39
TJ-booh: In /etc/init/lightdm.conf it does: "for ARG in $(cat /proc/cmdline); do if [ "$ARG" = "text" ]; then plymouth quit || : stop"00:40
Beldarblahlblah, The mini is the alternative since 12.10. Can you explain "gnome/unity software that needs to authenticate doesnt actually prompt to auth" waht this exactly means?00:40
blahlblahsay i run software updater00:41
blahlblahor synaptic00:41
blahlblahor any other application that i launch from unity / gdm / graphic env00:41
Beldarblahlblah, All in one post please.00:41
TJ-blahblah: If the user is 'root' there'd be no sudo challenge before running programs. The same effect can happen if the 'sudoers' file has been configured to allow the 'sudoers' group, or the specific user, run commands without requiring password ("NOPASSWD")00:42
blahlblahnormally when you run those applications, they produce a promp asking to authenticate so you can run with elevated privelidges, for some reason mine does not do that it just launches the programs. which creates an issue as the programs run with the assumption of elevation so they produce bizare outputs or dont output at all and just dont work. in a nutshel, i want to fix the policy or the policy daemon that is called / used by these programs so that they wi00:43
blahlblahi am a normal user :)00:43
blahlblahi am in the sudoers file, from cli everything works fine, the issue just seems to be with gdm / unity  not realising that it needs to prompt me and launch those type of apps with elevation00:44
blahlblahone work around would be to run gdm as root - but thats tarded :D00:44
Bashing-omkristenbb: Can you boot from the "recovery" console of grub's boot menu ? from there you may get to the desk top to change the graphics driver IF OEM driver is not installed .00:44
Beldarblahlblah, How familiar are you with linux or ubuntu?00:45
harcoofuhh I've written some kernel modules, but I wouldn't say I'm the most familiar00:45
kristenbbBashing-om: yes i'm able to get a command line00:45
blahlblahi know enough to know that i dont know as much as a lot of people, which is why im asking here:) but I am familiar enough to normally be able to solve my own issues by googling, in this case i have not had success :(00:46
kristenbbBashing-om: how to switch the driver to use back to nouveau ?00:46
Beldarharcoof, Look at the the nick I preface with, it is not yours00:46
blahlblahBeldar: i guess in context i would say im "familiar"00:46
Bashing-omkristenbb: What release ? 14.04 has some additional tools for graphics .00:46
kristenbbBashing-om: i had taken the 'proprietary, tested' driver version, but it prevented me from logging in00:46
kristenbbBashing-om: the latestt00:47
darkangelif 1 has around 500k files in a website and a fast computer would it make the website slow for havin soo much files in it00:47
Beldarblahlblah, You should not be running in root nor needing it for any more than updates and be using sudo there00:47
Bashing-omkristenbb: Try, reboot to grub, recovery kernel -> enable networking -> "resume normal boot" -> login -> desktop ->>> Additional Drivers and select the open source driver .00:48

blahlblahsorry i might not have explained my issue properly Beldar - i crosgraded from lubuntu to ubuntu desktop using the ubuntu-desktop package, the resultant ubunutu desktop environment does not prompt my normal user to elevate privelidges when it runs an application that would require it such as synaptic or software center. the result of this is that those apps cannot install software as they are running as me without elevation. i am in the sudoers file and i am00:50
kristenbbBashing-om: is it possible to do that from a command line ?00:50
Beldarblahlblah, Have you modified visudo?00:50
blahlblahBeldar: no, and the issue is not to do with os permissions00:51
Beldarblahlblah, Did you make a no password change to the sudors file?00:51
blahlblahor the config in the sudoers file00:51
blahlblahand no i did not00:51
blahlblahfrom the cli, if i do something that requires elevation, it rejects me, unless i do it via sudo.00:52
Beldarblahlblah, If you are running with no admin prompts for apps or commands that should than somehow it got changed.00:52
blahlblahwhen i do something from the gui, it does not prompt to elevate, and therefore cannot make changes00:52
Beldarblahlblah, Are you running from a rooted cli?00:52

Beldarblahlblah, What other linux installs have you used?00:55
ibrahimhello geeks my wireless card keep disconnecting and connecting here is lspci with driver http://pastie.org/949034100:55
blahlblahok Beldar how about this- say i am sitting on the desktop, and i type in "ubuntu software center" into the launcher, and click the launcher. it launches the application, but does not prompt me to authenticate, and no changes i make are applied by the software. IF instead i manually launch the program from a terminal window under sudo, it works perfectly.00:55
TJ-blahlblah: The way sudo/gksudo works is each time you gain elevated privileges a timestamped file is updated... maybe that file isn't being removed when the sudo timeout expires?00:56
ibrahimhello geeks my wireless card keep disconnecting and connecting ubuntu 14.4 here is lspci with driver http://pastie.org/949034100:56

Beldarblahlblah, The software center does not prompt for the paasword till you actually install something.00:56
insallblankhello everyone, i was on earlier having problems with installing ubuntu and getting a blank screen, now i have it installed and can't load the install00:56
Beldarinsallblank, "can't load the install" means?00:57
Bashing-omkristenbb: What returns from terminal command -> ubuntu-drivers devices <- ?00:57
TJ-blahlblah: Try "sudo --reset-timestamp"00:57
insallblankgetting a black screen when loading, loaded the live cd with the nomodeset paramiter and not sure how to apply that fix to the install00:57
blahlblahBeldar: well in MY case, when i actuially install something, the software center completes as if it had installed it but then refreshes and shows that it has not installed it. and does not prompt to elevate :)00:58
Beldarinsallblank, The nomodeset link has a install use at the grub menu with an edit.00:58
blahlblahactually there is an interesting error that i can produce using software center... ill see if i can retreive it - after i try TJ's idea00:58
ibrahimhello geeks my wireless card keep disconnecting and connecting ubuntu 14.4 here is lspci with driver http://pastie.org/949034100:59
Beldar!nomodeset | insallblank boot it run tehe update/upgrade it may get fixed.00:59
ubottuinsallblank boot it run tehe update/upgrade it may get fixed.: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter00:59
insallblankBeldar: i don't see a grub menu when ubuntu loads, i tried cntrl+alt+F1 and see a login prompt for a second and then the screen goes black and monitor shuts off00:59
kristenbbBashing-om: it lists 5 drivers, among other things00:59
Beldarinsallblank, Power on and start tapping the shift key.00:59
Bashing-omkristenbb: Good; -> ubuntu-drivers list <- ?01:00
insallblankBeldar: i've tried that too, nothing happened with either shift key01:00
TJ-blahlblah: You may be better off using "sudo --remove-timestamp" actually01:00
kristenbbBashing-om: lists 401:00
Beldarinsallblank, From the last description if true may be more than a graphic driver issue, try the menu prompt and no modeset edit first.01:01
insallblankubottu: i barely see a splash screen, right now i'm on the live cd , is there a parameter i can edit in the grub config file to change it to nomodeset boot until i can update the video drivers?01:01
ubottuinsallblank: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)01:01
Beldarinsallblank, Did you install from the desktop? Was the install error free?01:01

Beldarinsallblank, Had you checked the md5sum on the iso and install medium? Is this a dual boot?01:03
Beldarinsallblank, Ubuntu wont fit on a cd, is that what you used?01:03
kristenbbBashing-om: to be more precise, it lists 4 nvidia drivers. The first command showed the same 4, plus the nouveau driver. And just to be clear, I'm asking about switching to a new driver because the current one (the recommended, tested one) doesn't seem to work for me - the session doesn't start01:04
insallblankBeldar: no this is a ubuntu only install, not dual boot, i checked and everything was fine with the sum and the disk i used to install01:04
insallblankBeldar: no it was a dvd,01:04
Bashing-omkristenbb: Not sure now; to install the standard available proprietary video driver -> ubuntu-drivers autoinstall, I expect it to reconfigure, but I do not KNOW for sure.01:04
koplinany plans for unity to stop sucking?01:04
koplinlike when I remove and reinstall ubuntu-desktop01:05

Beldarinsallblank, So you have as soon as you powered on tapped on the shift key continuously, through the bios splash?01:05
insallblankBeldar: yeah, no result... tapped it continuously until the screen turned off01:06
Beldarkoplin, Why would we even answer you with biased opinions up front?01:06
koplinif I remove and reinstall a package, it should work01:06
koplinif it works in gentoo, and debian, and fedora, and mageia, and crux, and slackware, it should work the same in ubuntu01:07
koplinbut alas, this is not the same01:07
koplinthus I inquire here'01:07
Beldarinsallblank, Not sure here, I would check the HD from the disks app top right corner smartcheck and if good try another install. Might be an issue I don't know about really.01:07

darkangelIs this website work i thank i got it this time ppadomain.com01:10
Bashing-omkristenbb: Shucks! .. All I know now to do, isd to boot through recovery console with netwrking enabled to the desk top and access "Additional Drivers" from there.01:12
kristenbbBashing-om: ok so please guide me through it.  the grub menu doesn't show01:13
Bashing-omkristenbb: Reboot, and s soon as the bios screen clears ( non UEFI system ) depress and hold the right shift key -> grub boot menu .01:14
blahlblahTJ-: did not fix it, the error that is produced for example when i use software center to install something shows "software can't be installed or removed because the authentication service is not available. (org.freedesktop.PolicyKit.Error.Failed:('system-bus-name',{'name':':1.73'}): org.debian.apt.install-or-remove-packages01:16
kristenbbBashing-om: does not seem to work, i did it 3 times already01:16
blahlblahalso Beldar :)01:16
Bashing-omkristenbb: UEFI ? try: when bios screen clears depress the escape key .01:17
blahlblahi suspect theres a dependent package missing from ubuntu-desktop that is installed in the standard install but is not installed by lubuntu01:18
blahlblahor a service that is not configured - but i dont know how to configure said service :D hence my boggle hahaha01:18
blahlblahBeldar / TJ- : perhaps there is a flag i can toggle that tells it to auth? maby that flag is set to not auth?01:19
blahlblahif so would you know where /how to do that ?01:20
kristenbbBashing-om: well with the esc key pressed the output was somewhat different (kinda like i could see the output messages going), but it was not a grub menu, and it brought me in the end to the same error message01:20
Beldarblahlblah, This is beyond me. ;)01:20
TJ-blahlblah: That looks like the PolicyKit Authentication Agent isn't being started in the session01:21
Bashing-omkristenbb: OK. try: reboot, and as soon as the bios screen is going to clear, repeated depress/release the right shift key ??01:21
blahlblahany suggestions on how i can resolve that ? :)01:21
blahlblahTJ-:  i found a previous way to start it but the service has changed since that way worked, so now i dont know how to tell it to start01:22

What should I do now ?01:36
Bashing-omkristenbb: network ( as we have to have networking to download the graphics driver ).01:38
TJ-kristenbb: what kind of network connection does the PC have, wired or wireless ?01:38
kristenbbTJ-: wired01:38
TJ-kristenbb: And the LAN provides a DHCP service so the PC can get an IP address automatically?01:39
kristenbbBashing-om: so just 'network' and 'ok' ? then it asks the same question as before (it will remount in rw, and mount all /etc/fstab, continue?), should I proceed with 'ok' ?01:39
Bashing-omkristenbb: Yes .. the system must be in r/w to change that driver .01:40
kristenbbTJ-: the lan provides a dhcp service but this computer is set up to a static ip01:40

kristenbbTJ-: i doubt it, it's just a fresh installation, the only thing that i changed was the driver to the "recommanded, tested" one (well not so well tested apparently :()01:56
BeldarCorvette, I never upgrade, however that is my choice, there is no better involved but for me personally.01:56
arekoner'obviosly its write protected01:56
ProfessorKaos64has anyone ever managed to get the rice video plugin with mupe64plus to work fullscreen?01:56
TJ-kristenbb: First a video issue, and now possibly drive issues... have you done a thorough memtest on the RAM?01:56
Bashing-omarekoner: Yep .. r/r/x to all .. so where did you execute this chmod command ?01:56
arekonersudo chmod 777 /opt/cxoffice/lib/wine/winewrapper.exe.so01:57
kristenbbTJ-: i am 100% sure it's only video related01:57
TJ-kristenbb: Unless the file-systems being checked are abnormally large, they must have a lot of errors for the fsck to be taking this long01:58
kristenbbBashing-om: TJ-: i'm sorry i got borred of waiting for 20 minutes for a single character to appear, i pressed ctrl+C. i'm back at the error window ("the system is running in low graphics mode") even in recovery mode01:58
Bashing-omarekoner: do: -> ls -al /opt/cxoffice/lib/wine/winewrapper.exe.so <- .. what results ?01:58
CorvetteBeldar I usually don't upgrade either but I accidentally f*cked up some config files on this machine so I have to activate wifi via the terminal, which is a PITA. So I'm hoping the OTA upgrade will put the files back01:59
arekonerstart with sudo chmod or diff command01:59
danileigh79Corvette: It's not a broadcom b43 is it?01:59
kristenbbTJ-: i'll be sure to do a thorough fsck once this video driver issue is resolved then, and try to understand why it took so long in recovery mode. but now i'd like to fix the video issue, please. i can't log in, it's quite frustating.01:59
BeldarCorvette, No swearing, and never upgrade a non working/broken OS.01:59
arekoner-rwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 232780 Mar 18 16:26 /opt/cxoffice/lib/wine/winewrapper.exe.so01:59
Bashing-omarekoner: nope .. just flat out only ->  ls -al /opt/cxoffice/lib/wine/winewrapper.exe.so .........02:00
arekoner-rwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 232780 Mar 18 16:26 /opt/cxoffice/lib/wine/winewrapper.exe.so02:00
kristenbbBashing-om: so what was the whole point of using the recovery mode ? was it supposed not to use the proprietary driver in that mode ?02:01
TJ-kristenbb: If there's doubt about an fsck that can't complete, resolve that *first*. Anything else will likely make matters much worse. Right now we can't be sure any issues aren't caused by corruption02:01
CorvetteBeldar nooo it's not a broadcom b43 I know the nightmares with that02:01
Corvetteit's an onboard intel chip02:01
danileigh79Corvette: Broadcom B43 wifi apapters are notorious for not working with bundled wifi drivers02:01
arekonerany ideas bashing-om02:02
BeldarCorvette, Never said it was and this is a wasted conversation.02:02
BeldarNO real details and your going to do what you want with no thinking02:02
Bashing-omarekoner: Thin'n ( root still owns that file ) .02:02
kristenbbTJ-: it's a *fresh* install. the second one, as a matter of fact, still with the same video issue. i can do a third fresh install, and do fsck *before* trying to switch to the proprietary driver if you really want me to, but i can assure you my problem is video related02:03
TJ-kristenbb: Did the network come up? go to a root shell and find out. I think Bashing-om's intention was to use the shell to remove or reinstall the video drivers, which would require network access.02:04
kristenbbTJ-: when i get to the error, i can go to a TTY of my choice, so i get a command line. the networking does come up even when not in recovery mode, which apparently has no use at all02:05
kristenbbTJ-: how can I remove or reinstall the video drivers ? ie switch back to nouveau ?02:06
kristenbbTJ-: (from command line)02:07
arekonerbashing-om.... when addring -r to chmod wont it make it recursive02:07
TJ-kristenbb: In recovery mode network is not started unless we ask for it, which is what Bashing-om was getting you to do. With that enabled, it is then possible at the root shell to remove/install packages02:07
TJ-kristenbb: Which driver is currently installed, do you know?02:07
kristenbbarekoner: -R02:07
arekonerwhere does -R go kristen02:08
kristenbbarekoner: in the same place as -r would, it's just that it's -R02:09
arekonerso  sudo chmod -R 777 /opt/cxoffice/lib/wine.02:10
kristenbbTJ-: but i can get to a command line with network access even without being in recovery mode, so i dont really see the point of going to recovery mode. it doesn't really matter though that i don't understand. the driver in use is a nvidia one, the recommended, tested one. would you like the number ?02:10
kristenbbarekoner: yep02:10
Flannelarekoner: You probably don't want to do that.  In general, if you're having to chmod recursively, you're attacking a problem the wrong way.02:10
blahlblahTJ-: fixed it02:11
TJ-kristenbb: "dpkg -l 'nvidia*' " should show which package needs removing02:11
TJ-blahlblah: well done :)02:11
blahlblahtahnks for your help - you pointed me in the right direction :D02:11

arekonerkristenbb do u know how to make them readonly02:13
Bashing-omarekoner: Yeah NOT at all what to do with system directories, these access are set for a reason .. you want a real borked up system ? // OK what is it that you need to do in "winewrapper.exe.so" ?02:13

ubottuCanonical's partner repositories provide a location for software vendors to publish applications. The repo itself can be added by running this in a !terminal: « sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" »02:24

ahklerneri have upgraded xubuntu and i have no audio (i think it worked before but i am not positive) i downloaded the pavucontrol and only "Dummy Output" is showing for output device. i am not sure where to start getting it recognized02:35
poplahklerner: xubuntu is not ubuntu02:36
poplahklerner: maybe try #xubuntu02:37
Beldarpopl, WE do xubuntu here.02:37
somsippopl: it's supported here as an official flavor02:37
poploh, ok02:37
ahklernerwell i am glad to here this channel also supports it as there are 122 people in #xubuntu and noone is awake, 1500 in here hopefully someone is bored and can assist me02:39
Beldarahklerner, Upgraded from what release and how?02:39
arnold0kanghi all02:39
arnold0kanghi all02:39
TJ-ahklerner: This should get you started: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting02:39
mjaykahklerner: what audio device are you using ? i.e. what type of output02:40
ahklernerit is a laptop, i am wanting to be able to hear audio from the built in speakers, and use the volume wheel on the front. i do not care if headphone or mic port work02:41
ObrienDavepopl, seriously?02:42
kostkonahklerner, output of: aplay -l02:42
ahklernerkostkon: http://pastebin.com/t3Lyhpb802:44
kostkonahklerner, ok. try this: kill pulseaudio with:   pulseaudio -k,  then open your home folder and delete the hidden folder  .pulse   there should be a way to view hidden files in xubuntu's file manager. After doing that,  start pulseaudio again with:  pulseaudio -D02:45
Abhijitlshw -C network do not show wireless interface. wifi is not working. how can i troubleshoot it?02:48
ahklernerthere is not a folder .pulse in my home02:49
kostkonahklerner, it's hidden02:50
TJ-ahklerner: kostkon It's probably a codec issue. Does this report the realtek driver loaded: "lsmod | grep snd_hda_codec_realtek" ?02:53
kostkonahklerner, yeah, sorry, that folder probably is now in .config02:54
linman32hi. using ubuntu and i am not able to start a terminal. or open up tabs at top of screen for any application02:54
linman32anyone know what this might be?02:54
poplObrienDave: What do you mean?02:55
ahklernerTJ- http://pastebin.com/yp4YKY5g02:56
ahklernerkostkon: indeed02:56
ObrienDavepopl> ahklerner: xubuntu is not ubuntu02:56
TJ-ahklerner: do this then reboot: "echo -e "alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel\noptions snd-hda-codec-realtek index=-2" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf "02:57
ObrienDave*must not feed trolls*02:57
linman32has anyone seen this problem? i tried opening word application and it almost crashed02:58
poplI'm not trolling.02:58
ahklernerTJ-: ok02:58
poplI seriously thought xubuntu wasn't supported here.02:58
poplMaybe you could not assume that everyone is trying to be a dick, ObrienDave. :P I *did* ask alis about a xubuntu channel to try to help ahklerner out.02:59
poplI don't think someone who was trolling would have done that.02:59
linman32someone gave advice of ctrl+alt+f2, then "killall -u [username] gnome session"02:59
linman32but when i enter the password, it always says it is wrong03:00
linman32i think the gnome session is crashing. is there a way of fixing it?03:02
wafflejocklinman32: is this a fresh install or was working and is now failing?03:03
linman32i think it has been happening since i upgraded from 12.04 to 14.0403:04
linman32wafflejock: it typically happens after about 10 lock screens. then it starts to fail03:06
ahklernerTJ-: now "Built in analog stereo" shows in the pavucontrol so i will check and see if audio works03:06
ahklernerok now i do have audio!03:06
superman098hi all03:07
wafflejocklinman32: you using Gnome Ubuntu?03:07
ahklernernow what do i need to do to get the volume control wheel to work?03:07
linman32wafflejock: i'm not sure03:07
TJ-ahklerner: Great :)03:07
kristenbbcan I please get some help to install ubuntu with a nvidia card ? it's the third install that i'm doing and i keep getting a black screen or an error message before the login screen comes in03:07
TJ-ahklerner: I'm not sure, it depends on how it interfaces to the system - whether special input drives are needed, etc.03:08
mjayk_kristenbb: what graphics card / install type / hardware are you using03:09
superman098i want to revive my old pc at home who runned with AMD Duron with 128Mb ram? is any distribution of ubuntu for very2 old PC? there is much another distros but i think ubuntu is the best. Hmmm so which environtment i could use?03:09
wafflejocklinman32: if you have the Unity interface or just downloaded from here: http://www.ubuntu.com/ then you don't have Ubuntu Gnome http://ubuntugnome.org/03:09
mjayk_superman098: look into xubuntu or mate ubuntu remix03:09
kristenbbmjayk_: nvidia / ubuntu 14.0403:09
superman098ok i would find info about it first03:09
wafflejock^ superman098 agree regular Unity is pretty heavy for an older machine03:10
Stanley00superman098: ...or lubuntu :)03:10
wafflejockXubuntu is lightweight03:10
mjayk_kristenbb: desktop ?03:10
superman098lubuntu would runnning with at least 256Mb minimum ram03:10
mjayk_kristenbb: and what type of nvidia card03:10
kristenbbdesktop, gtx 68003:11
wafflejockahklerner: what kind of volume wheel are you talking about exactly?03:11
linman32wafflejock: i think i have unity interface. but i see gnome proccesses running in background03:11
xanguamjayk_: superman098 lubuntu would be fit better with 128 RAM03:11
wafflejocklinman32: yeah ubuntu before 12.04 I think was Gnome by default so there's probably some reminants in the Unity version too just trying to understand your situation better03:11
Stanley00superman098: hmm... I didn't know that. I've just test lxde on other distro and it took 128mb of ram.03:12
mjayk_kristenbb: and what happens can you install the system when does the backscreen occur03:12
wafflejocklinman32: so as is the system works fine but only after you hit the lock screen a few times then things in the UI start breaking?03:12
mjayk_xangua: ok thanks ive never used lubuntu, good to know03:12
Stanley00superman098: and xfce about 150MB :D03:12
linman32wafflejock: yeah pretty much03:13
kristenbbmjayk_: it occurs before the login screen, after i tried to use the proprietary recommended, tested version03:13
superman098now for ubuntu 14.04 xubuntu minimum ram 512 MB03:13
superman098i just want made some cool experiment with my old pc03:13
mjayk_kristenbb: have you tried going back to the old drivers then03:13
linman32wafflejock: it always starts failing after i login after i lock screen. never in middle of session03:13
kristenbbmjayk_: unsuccessfully tried to uninstall all nvidia packages03:14
mjayk_kristenbb: http://askubuntu.com/questions/450046/black-screen-with-nvidia-drivers-on-ubuntu have a look there03:14
BlaksmithHi there.. got a weird issue.. was running 12.04, and upgraded to 14.04 (so far, BIG MISTAKE, as crap is not working as it used to, and not happy, but I also can not do a fresh install at this time), but I was using alacarte to update my menu, added in an item or two, then I was moving them up the list to where I wanted ... I hit the "Move Up" button too fast, and got a popup window about a file not there, so, I kept moving the item up03:14
linman32wafflejock: really just after a lockscreen. because one of the monitors won't let me login is start.03:14
Stanley00superman098: well, did you use arch before? arch with lxde only take 128MB, and if you want something else, try tiling wm only, you can save 20-40MB RAM03:14
wafflejocklinman32: there's some related posts here about lightdm failing which I'm pretty sure is the program used for the lock screen now http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=221442103:14
Blaksmithnow, when I hit my "Applications Menu", I have NO menu at all...03:15

wafflejocklinman32: k yeah so you've got an intel chipset not the same as what they're complaining about in that forum I don't think, might be related03:19
wafflejocklinman32: not sure where to point you here though I've got Ubuntu Gnome 14.04 right now and don't have any lock screen issues so hard to say03:19
Bashing-omsuperman098: I install 'buntu on many old pc's .. with 128mb of ram .. minimum install, xfce for the DE .03:20
wafflejocklinman32: you can try to see if you have errors in the Xorg log that help at all, this will show 5 lines before and after and the line numbers where errors popped up in Xorg03:20
wafflejockcat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE -n -A5 -B503:20
TJ-ahklerner: I've just found a photo of the M115 motherboard; the volume wheel is a simple variable resistor so it will operate on the analogue electronics side, nothing needed from the software point of view03:21
Jeffrey_fsubsonic: update your apache configs and restart apache.  You can ftp/sftp those file to each server.  I'm assuming they will be the same, correct?03:21
wafflejocklinman32: I actually have a very similar graphics chipset too but like I said different OS install 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)03:21
linman32wafflejock:  don't see errors. trying to "sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop"03:22
subsonicJeffrey_f: I was hoping not to have to ftp03:22
linman32wafflejock: someone mentioned it in thread03:22
wafflejocklinman32: well that will get you a whole different Desktop Environment03:22
subsonicI could probably write a script03:22
wafflejocklinman32: and I think it will  still use lightdm for the login/lock screen but suppose it's worth a shot if you're just tinkering03:23
linman32wafflejock: what does that mean?03:23
linman32wafflejock: well. not trying to tinker03:23
wafflejocklinman32: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/desktop_environment#List_of_desktop_environments03:23

subsonicJeffrey_f: yes03:24
linman32wafflejock: guess what i'm doing is in vain haha03:25

arekoneranyone here know how to get genymotion to install03:25
wafflejocklinman32: yeah it's hard to find what's going wrong with things like this sometimes... if you want to get to the bottom of it though I would look more into lightdm debugging or logging information to see what's going on03:25
Jeffrey_fsubsonic: easiest edit the config(s), move them to the servers somehow and restart apache.03:25
subsonicJeffrey_f yeah :) was just hoping to automate the process a little03:26
Jeffrey_fsubsonic: for a one time thing?03:27
linman32wafflejock: ok thanks. i will see how this goes. will probably be back actively actively asking questions in a few days03:27
wafflejocksubsonic: you can use a bash script and scp03:27

mjayk_if you are coming from a system that was ment to have drivers before hand that could have been your problem03:30
mjayk_you didnt do that step before or that step didnt work before03:30
Jeffrey_fsubsonic: you can probably script this somehow to execute commands on each server.  https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18502945/how-to-execute-a-remote-command-over-ssh-with-arguments03:30
wjbhey, is anyone familiar with NTFS write issues which occur in a linux guest / windows host environment?03:30
wafflejocksuperman098: yea arch is one of the most minimal but not great for beginners03:31
VinnyAtaidehello can anyone help me through?03:31
kristenbbmjayk_: well in any case, i restarted, andd the problem is still there03:31
subsonicJeffrey_f, wafflejock, TJ-: Yeah, I've looked intp puppet/chef but then how do you update those configs on each of the servers03:31
mjayk_kristenbb: no idea then03:31
subsonicit's OK for now :)03:31
kristenbbmjayk_: :(03:31
wjbI have a mint VM on windows 8.1, and when torrenting, writes fail, causing qbittorrent to re-dl files multiple times. Sometimes writes succeed; sometimes they don't03:32
arekoner'anyone here know how to get genymotion to install03:32
kristenbbmjayk_: thanks for trying03:32
subsonicI'm spending more time looking on how to automate than do what Jeffrey_f said and just update each server :)03:32
wafflejocksubsonic: well with Jenkins it has a git plugin that watches a repo for changes then on changes you can trigger a script on the server to do whatever03:32
TJ-subsonic: The point of such tools is they do it for you, they ensure the managed servers are always correctly configured according to the 'recipe' you define03:32
mjayk_nw's hope you get it fixed03:32
kristenbbcan I please get some help to install ubuntu with a nvidia card ? it's the third install that i'm doing and i keep getting a black screen or an error message before the login screen comes in.03:32
subsonicwafflejock: yeah, I could possibly set up a git repo for server configs03:32
wafflejocksubsonic: yeah automation is only good for things you'll repeat every week or something03:32
wafflejockfor one offs it's always a losing battle03:33
Jeffrey_fsubsonic: script an sftp/ftp to each server and the remote command link I sent above to move the configs into place and again to restart apache03:33
O00OVinnyAtaide: have you tired put this on tmux.conf --> set -g default-terminal "screen-256color"03:33
wafflejockI use it for deploying all my code though cause I can avoid ftp this way and I don't have to fiddle with the server really03:33
O00OVinnyAtaide: *tried03:33
VinnyAtaideo00o: yes03:33
arekoneranyone here know how to get genymotion to install03:33
neldogzwhen creating a cron job to backup directories with rsync, can i have multiple lines separated by a space? Will the script process line per line?03:33
Jeffrey_fsubsonic: in 4 steps, send the config files to the servers, move the old config to .old on each server, move the new configs into place, restart apache03:34
subsonicyeah :)03:35
subsonicthanks guys!03:35
O00OVinnyAtaide: and make a tmux alias like that? --> TERM=xterm-256color tmux03:35
neldogzarekoner, http://www.webupd8.org/2013/07/genymotion-fast-easy-to-use-android-x86.html03:35
wafflejocksubsonic: np remember to always keep the three lasws or robotics in mind when creating automation :P03:35
Jeffrey_fsubsonic: any time03:36
VinnyAtaideo00o: let me check03:37
VinnyAtaideo00o: is that on .bashrc?03:37
wafflejockwjb: not sure what the issue is but have you considered just sharing some folders between the host OS and guest OS and torrenting in the host OS instead03:38
arekonerneldogz: that sites instruction arent working03:40
O00OVinnyAtaide: can be... just make export TERM=xterm-256color in someplace your user can start... bashrc or profile... etc...03:41
VinnyAtaideo00o: ok03:41
arekoneri shortened the filename for ease of use03:41
VinnyAtaidei didn't have that03:41
wafflejockneldogz: yeah if you are just asking if a .sh bash script file will execute line by line the answer is yes03:42
neldogzwafflejock, thank you03:42
wafflejockneldogz: np there's some minimal but okay docs on bash scripts here http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Bash-Prog-Intro-HOWTO.html03:42
VinnyAtaideo00o: I still have the same issue03:43
wafflejockI've always been into making batch files in windows and bash files in linux really helps for things I don't want to memorize then you can just put them all in a ~/scripts/ folder and add that to the path and use them anywhere03:44
O00OVinnyAtaide: read that --> http://tmux.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/tmux/tmux/FAQ03:45
VinnyAtaideo00o: ok ty03:45
neldogzarekoner, whats not working03:45

nahtnamHey guys! I just got my new System 76 laptop! Are there any really good/important apps I need to download?03:46
arekonerneldogz: i shortened the filename for ease of use03:46
somsipVinnyAtaide: if this is the unknown terminal error, install terminfo-ncurses on the target machine03:46
VinnyAtaidesomsip: no, i think it has to be with my .bashrc file, it's pretty big and hard to maintain right now03:47
wafflejocknahtnam: depends on your needs and what you like, if you use Pandora radio I use Pithos for that as a desktop app03:47
wafflejocknahtnam: probably better for #ubuntu-offtopic though since this chat is generally just support issues03:48
nahtnamwafflejock: Nah, I am getting Spotify! Anything else?03:48
nahtnamOh kk03:48
nahtnamSorry. Ill move my question there! :)03:48
wafflejockno worries have fun03:48
somsipVinnyAtaide: if you are connecting via ssh and trying to start/attach to a tmux session using urxvt and get the 'unknown terminal' error, installing terminfo-ncurses to fix it. If the issue is something else, fair enough03:48
VinnyAtaidesomsip: nice thing I have it already installed dont remember when I did03:49
somsipVinnyAtaide: on the target machine...03:49
O00OVinnyAtaide: this one is nice too --> http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/118806/tmux-term-and-256-colours-support03:49

tortibHello can someone help me with this issue with cacti I'm having?  I have outlined the details here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/514072/blank-cacti-graphs04:02
Enissayis there any recommended link to install lamp on 14.0404:03
xangua! Lamp04:03
ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process.04:03
FallWhich MTA does Ubuntu come install with from fresh install?04:04
rwwFall: it doesn't. the usual recommendation for people looking for one is postfix04:04
rwwubottu: postfix04:04
ubottupostfix is the default !MTA and !MDA on Ubuntu. For help, read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Postfix and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PostfixBasicSetupHowto - See also !MailServer04:04
Fallcool thanks.04:05
Enissayxangua, cool, thks <304:06
arekonerdoes anyone here use genymotion04:06
nahtnamHey! I need a little help with keyboard shortcuts04:09
nahtnamI created one04:09
FallThanks, just had to configure to send to a smart host.04:09
nahtnamand the comand is right04:09
nahtnambut its not working04:09
nahtnamIf I type the command in terminal, it works but it doesnt work as a keyboard shortcut04:09
Abhijitnahtnam, whats the command and whats the keyboard shortcut?04:10
bmuffanyone know anything about genymotion04:10
nahtnamAbhijit: bash ~/Documents/imgur/imgur.sh -l04:10
nahtnamimgur.sh allows me to select an area, and uploads it to imgur.com04:10
bmuffhow about terminal commands04:11
=== megabitdragon is now known as megabit|away
Abhijitwhat is keyword bash is doing there?04:11
=== quem_ is now known as quem
nahtnamAbhijit: To run it?04:12
bmuffi went to this page for instructions on how to install... i keep getting errorshttp://www.webupd8.org/2013/07/genymotion-fast-easy-to-use-android-x86.html04:12
Abhijitnahtnam, you just add #!/bin/bash to that .sh and do ~/Documentsn/imgur/imgur.sh04:12
bmuffcan some one help me with terminal commands04:13
kristenbbcan I get help to get a video driver working ?04:13
* Abhijit guess we are not supposed to do !ask when its not crowded. let them keep asking if they can ask.04:14
nahtnamAbhijit: Its still not working04:14
somsipbmuff: genymotion is beta and not supported. You need to get help on installing from them. If you ask your terminal commands questions you might get answers04:14
Abhijitnahtnam, what still not working? script, command or keyboard shortcut?04:14
VinnyAtaidewell I couldn't resolve the issue so in the meantime I'm using  gvim04:15
nahtnamAbhijit: Well, when I run the keyboard shortcut, nothing happens. If I run the command from terminal, it works...04:15
Abhijitnahtnam, whats the shortcut?04:15
bmuffjust trying to get its installer to run.... does linux usually use a .bin file for exec04:15
nahtnamAbhijit: CTRL+SHIFT+1 (The 1 shows up as !)04:15
Abhijitnahtnam, just change in then? to some character a to Z instead of number?04:16
somsipbmuff: extensions make no difference. .bin is by convention only04:16
nahtnamAbhijit: CTRL+SHIFT+Z doesnt work as well04:16
bmuffwhat does this mean... it in the instructions04:17
bmuffchmod +x genymotion-2.1.0_x64.bin04:17
bmuffand this is what i get when i run it04:18
bmuffchmod +x /home/bmuff/downloads/geny.bin04:18

apb1963so after a mindbending 12+ hours and reviewing no less than 15 or 20 how-tos and series of posts, I have my wireless connection working - sort of.  I can ping the wlan0 interface (IP) from the host, and I can ping it's IP from the router.  However, if I take the eth0 interface down, I'm unable to ping the Net.04:19
bmuffi renamed the file04:19
somsipbmuff: is the file there? is it really called geny.bin?04:19
bmuffi renamed it04:19
bmuffease of use04:19
somsipbmuff: show the output of ls that shows the file is really there04:19
bmuffill paste04:20
somsip!paste | bmuff04:20
ubottubmuff: For posting multi-line texts into the channel, please use http://paste.ubuntu.com | To post !screenshots use http://imgur.com/ !pastebinit to paste directly from command line | Make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic.04:20
bmuffcan u type the command04:20
somsipbmuff: how do you know the file is there if you don't know the command to check it?04:21
bmuffcause i downloaded it there and when i go there in a file manager thats how i renamd it04:22
TJ-apb1963: Sounds like you don't have a default route set over the wlan0 interface, so when eth0 goes down there's no route to
apb1963TJ-: it does, doesn't it.  But... I do.04:22
somsipbmuff: downloads is usually Downloads (case sensitive). Try ls -la ~/Downloads04:23
apb1963TJ-: give me a sec.. I'll pastebin it.04:23
TJ-apb1963: We usually have both interfaces configure a default route, but with different metrics (weightings). The wlan0 is the less-preferred interface in most instances so it gets a higher metric. Typically eth0 metric 10  and wlan0 metric 2004:23
bmuffill try that one moment04:23
bmuffno caps dosent affect whether it can see the file04:24
bmuffif my file was downloaded to the default downloads folder04:24
bmuffwhats the address04:24
TJ-bmuff: Shouldn't it be "/home/bmuff/Downloads/geny.bin"  (note the upper-case 'D') ?04:25
bmufftry that one mom04:25
bmuffseemed to work04:25
bmuffso what did that do04:25
superman098hi bro, do you have a reference how to completely remove unity+gnome from ubuntu 14.04 Cz i want to get rid it and change to fluxbox to revive my old pc04:26
tortibHello can someone help me with this issue with cacti I'm having?  I have outlined the details here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/514072/blank-cacti-graphs04:26
apb1963TJ-: I posted the same thing two different ways. http://pastebin.com/LYjGvdL904:27
TJ-apb1963: Are you sure that packets are routing out of wlan0?04:28
TJ-apb1963: "ping -nc 4 -I wlan0 192.168.01"04:28
apb1963TJ-: thank you.  I didn't know how to do that.04:29
TJ-apb1963: correct my typo :p04:29
bmufftj your solution didnt error04:29
bmuffso what did we do04:29
TJ-bmuff: Used the correct path name, which has an upper-case 'D', not a lower-case 'd'04:30
bmuffbut what does chmod-x /home/bmuff/Downloads/geny.bin do04:30
TJ-bmuff It changes the mode of the file to allow execution, by setting the bit that is referred to as 'x'04:31
bmuffso i should now try to execute it04:32
apb1963TJ-: http://pastebin.com/P7vCWBJD04:32
bmufftj u da man04:32
TJ-bmuff: if you do "ls -l  /home/bmuff/Downloads/geny.bin" you'll see the result begins with some "rwxr-xr-x   " indicators. Those indicate the permissions of the Owning User ('u'), Owning Group ('g'') and Others ('o') in groups of three flags: Read, Write, eXecute04:33
TJ-apb1963: OK, so wlan reaches the gateway. Now try pinging an Internet IP address/host to ensure it can reach (and receive replies)04:33
apb1963PING ( from wlan0: 56(84) bytes of data.04:34
apb196364 bytes from icmp_req=1 ttl=43 time=47.9 ms04:34
bmuffTj u solved my prob..... u da man man04:34
bmuffthanx much04:34
TJ-apb1963: OK, so when eth0 goes down what is the remaining routing table, and will those same commands still work?04:36
TJ-apb1963: how do you 'down' eth0, what command ?04:37
apb1963TJ-: I just answered that for ppping in the other channel :)04:37
apb1963I think I used ifdown, but it's possible I did ifconfig .. don't remember.  Been going back and forth.04:37
apb1963My mind is uncomfortably numb :/04:38
TJ-apb1963: Well, if you've configured the interfaces via the 'interfaces' file you can do "sudo ifdown eth0 && ip route ls && ping -nc 4"04:38
apb1963I did04:38
apb1963configure it that way04:39
TJ-apb1963: I'm wondering if you have IP connectivity but lose the DNS server... have you verified whether it is hostnames or IP addresses that become unreachable?04:39
apb1963but if it doesn't work i'll have to reboot04:39
nahtnamHello. My keyboard shortcuts are not working. The command I typed in the keyboad shortcut settings work in terminal but no with keyboad shortcuts. I am trying to run https://github.com/jomo/imgur-screenshot I think that Ubuntu isnt waiting for me to select the screen, and is instantly closing the bash script. Im not sure how to make it "wait"04:39
apb1963ip addresses04:39
TJ-apb1963: You should only need to do "sudo ifup eth0" to restore the connection04:40
apb1963yes.... should.04:40
TJ-apb1963: can you "pastebinit /etc/network/interfaces" ?04:40
apb1963maybe I'll get lucky and it'll work this time :)04:40
apb1963hang on04:40
klurbinHi, I just upgraded from 12.04 to 14.04 and now when I have a ps4 controller plugged in it acts as a mouse. How can I disable this so that I can charge the PS4 controller while not using it as a mouse?04:41
=== tac is now known as tac-tics
=== blabla is now known as PraX1Ne
Beldarklurbin, Have you tried leaving it plugged in in suspend overnight?04:45
klurbinBeldar: I'm not sure what you mean? With the computer in suspend?04:46
Beldarstandby seems to be a general consensus, I suspect ion windows klurbin04:46
klurbinI never suspend the machine. I plug the controller in to charge a lot. Today I was playing a game while it was plugged in. This worked fine on 12.04. I noticed my mouse started moving with the sticks while it was playing the game too04:47
Beldarklurbin, Suspend still powers the usb ports, I would try that.04:47
klurbinThat's not really a solution though. I want to use the computer while using the game04:48
TJ-klurbin: probably all it needs is a custom udev rule creating to prevent the device being configured as an input device04:48
klurbinTJ-:  thats more what I was thinking. I overwrote the change with do_release_upgrade, I just don't remember what I had set or where04:48
apb1963TJ-: I had to doctor it up a bit for public consumption: http://pastebin.com/H02pESuU04:48
TJ-klurbin: custom udev rules would remain, and you'd find them in "/etc/udev/rules.d/"04:48
TJ-apb1963: The only thing there that I'd have expected would be a "dns-nameservers" entry for eth0 too, otherwise there'd be no DNS resolution if wlan0 isn't connected04:50
apb1963TJ-: yeah I'm not sure why that works.  I prolly changed something somewhere else months ago I've forgotten about.04:52
TJ-apb1963: try downing eth0 now and test whether wlan0 still has connectivity, and grab the "ip route ls | tee ~/route.txt" output to a file so you can pastebinit once the network is back - if it goes down.04:53
apb1963TJ-: back05:06
apb1963TJ-: pastebin coming up05:07
apb1963TJ-: http://ix.io/dYH05:08
^BARrE|^wats a good dns server to install?05:08
apb1963TJ-: I should perhaps mention that wicd is running05:09
apb1963I should prolly uninstall it since it didn't really help05:09
apb1963TJ-: new rule... don't click on wicd.  In fact... I just removed it.  Too easy to break the network with that thing.05:12
shoerainconfound it, that's kind of dumb regarding having the OS X installer disappear after running05:12
TJ-apb1963: That doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. Is Network Manager involved in any way?05:12
apb1963TJ-:  nope, removed it earlier05:13
apb1963TJ-: not sure if you commented on my paste.... if you did, I didn't see it as I was briefly disconnected when I clicked on wicd.05:14
TJ-apb1963: No, still trying to make sense of it. Can you "tail -n 500 /var/log/syslog | pastebinit" ?05:15

makarahi, I've got this weird problem. Sometimes, about 30% of the occassions I start my Lenovo B570 with 14.10, the mouse pointer is laggy. Using the touchpad, its fine. What's happening?05:31
TJ-apb1963: they're  typical until the interfaces are brought up05:31
cfhowlettmakara, 14.10 support only in #ubuntu+1   not here05:32
makaraag I mean 14.0405:32
TJ-apb1963: I can't see how, you proved the wlan0 could ping outside the home network, you drop eth0, and wlan0 suddenly can't ping05:32
cfhowlettmakara, if you don't want beta performance issues, install a released version of ubuntu05:32
wafflejockmakara: possible USB issue?05:32
TJ-apb1963: and yet the routing table has the default route for wlan0 in there05:32
apb1963so you see why i'm perplexed :/05:33
wafflejockmakara: tried various ports?05:33
TJ-apb1963: The only other thing I can think is if you've got some kind of firewall installed that blocks everything when eth0 goes down05:33
apb1963some kind of firewall like.... iptables maybe?05:33
wafflejockapb1963: that or ufw or shorewall or something05:33
TJ-apb1963: iptables is just a user-space controller for the kernel netfilters05:34
apb1963I do in fact use iptables05:34
makarawafflejock: I should also mention that as of 14.04, shutdown, restart, sleep don't execute their final step of actually shutting down the machine etc05:34
apb1963and I think you might have nailed it05:34
apb1963but I should check before presenting you with the trophy cup05:34
TJ-apb1963: there could be scripts belonging to other firewall packages that are triggered in "/etc/network/ifdown.d/" and similar directories05:34
makarawafflejock: the pointer acts normally now - same usb05:35

apb1963thank you05:42
wafflejockwjb: hmm strange... I have Win 8 in a VM on a Linux Host, it's not the best thing ever but it seems to work fine that way, so the problem is with the other way around?05:44
wafflejockI actually had that setup too for a little bit but then just did dual boot and then switched to Linux for the main and VM for Windows05:44

bobubtuhello peeps05:46
wafflejockmakara: you can try shutdown from the command line but not sure you'll get any difference05:46
wafflejockmakara: perhaps switch to a tty first like Ctrl+Alt+F1 then do the shutdown from there and see if you have any messaging about what's failing05:46
wjbThe failures are intermittent: sometimes, the writes succeed, and sometimes they fail. I set up an audit of file writes to that directory, and a custom event log filter, during the last hr05:47

=== Guest45381 is now known as Ubuntu1956
wafflejockoseku: I mean it would basically defeat the purpose of encrypting the data if it was easy to access without the appropriate credentials so that's some sort of silver lining, but you may have lost whatever is in those directories06:57
osekuwafflejock, in my home directory, I have only two files now.. Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop and README.txt, both refering to ecryptfs-setup-private06:58
osekuwafflejock, that's too bad :( I'm not sure why it happended in the first place..just because I changed my password?06:58
wafflejockoseku: well I'm not sure how you changed your password but there may be some utilities that allow you to change the password but don't properly interact with the encyptfs parts, personally I just don't use the home folder encryption06:59
wafflejockI barely ever take my machine out of my place and just am not that concerned with people who might steal my laptop from my place thinking to try and pull data from it07:00
wafflejockand don't want to deal with the possible problem of being locked out07:00

TJ-oseku: You've changed your user password and now you can't unlock the encrypted home ?07:02

osekuTJ-, I changed the password with passwd07:02
osekuwafflejock, I have a backup of most of my files, but just not all of them..so of course I'd like to get access to the remaining files07:03
TJ-oseku: At a terminal do "ecryptfs-mount-private"07:03
laviwafflejock, have you tried to change the password back to old?07:04
TJ-oseku: What happens is, when you create the encrypted home it uses the user password to encrypt the passphrase used to unlock the data... when you change your user password, you have to update the wrapped passphrase too07:04
wafflejocklavi: actually trying to help oseku07:04
laviwafflejock, oops :)07:04

osekulavi, I forgot the old one, that's why I have changed it via the recovery console07:05

TJ-oseku: And when you created the encrypted home, did you follow the advice and save the unwrapped pass-phrase?07:06
abakHi everyone, I have ubuntu and linux installed on my laptop. These days I have to switch very often between the two, is there a way to run both at the same time (as in, running the installed windows in a vm inside ubuntu)07:06
osekuTJ-, I don't remember, since it was a few years ago when I installed 12.04 originally. in what form would the pass-phrase be saved?07:06
wafflejockabak: absolutely07:07
wafflejockabak: I use virtualbox personally and it works just fine07:07
abakhow do you set it up ?07:07
wafflejockabak: sudo apt-get install virtualbox07:07
osekuTJ-, when I run the ecryptfs-mount-private command, I get the error "ERROR: Encrypted private directory is not setup properly"07:07
abakwafflejock, as in, how do you make sure it doesn't fuck your windows partition ?07:07
wafflejockafter you install just launch virtual box you hit new and follow some wizards to point to a disk it all gets saved in an image07:08
TJ-oseku: The ecryptfs utils  display it to you and you're expected to save it somewhere safe, off the PC07:08
wafflejockabak: you can't really move an existing system that's more of a pain -> impossible07:08
wafflejockabak: a clean install is fine though07:08
osekuI also run it from the machine directly (not from the live cd), then I get "Enter your login passphrase: Error: Unwrapping passphrase and inserting into the user session keyring failed [-5] Info: Check the system log for more information from libecryptfs ERROR: Your passphrase is incorrect Enter your login passphrase:"07:08
TJ-oseku: OK, without the original password, that won't work anyhow. You *need* the original unwrapped passphrase which you should have put somewhere safe, as it recommends07:08
abakwafflejock, I don't want to move it, just use an exisiting  partition as a disk for a vml07:08
wafflejockabak: yeah I've seen some stuff but really that's not gonna work out cause you have different virtualized hardware than you do real hardware07:09
osekuTJ-, I don't remember about that passphrase :( would I be able to restore my files at this point, if I were able to remember my password?07:09
wafflejockabak: I made the switch like a year and a half ago from dual boot to windows in a VM to avoid the reboots07:10
osekuTJ-, I tried my common passwords that I use, but they didn't work.. so I think it's maybe just a small variation or something like that.. so I'm wondering, if that's the only solution, would I be able to get access if I try further my passwords and maybe ge thte right one?07:10
wafflejockabak: but researched a bit and clean install was the only way07:10
TJ-oseku: If you can remember/recover the original password then yes, you can use the tool I showed you to unlock and mount the encrypted home, you can also then use other tools to unwrap the passphrase and re-wrap it with your new password07:10
wafflejockoseku: based on the bug report I linked that worked for people07:10
wafflejockoseku: if they got it right and rebooted it was able to mount07:11
osekuTJ-, wafflejock, thanks..so it seems I must try further :(07:11

TJ-atlanx__: one of the additions I made was the 'type' parameter... read this for details of how it works/what is needed: https://github.com/iam-TJ/nvidiabl/commit/72a641a030717041d513ac7b0f11a72a378502e508:09
TJ-bronzilla: Yes, if you took the original advice and saved the unwrapped passphrase to a safe location08:09
bronzillaTJ-:  yup I have that 0be53xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx08:10
TJ-atlanx__: in summary, you probably need "options nvidiabl type=firmware" in "/etc/modprobe.d/nvidiabl.conf" and then do a re-start to ensure that is picked up08:10
GatisHow can i list packages i have installed?08:10
TJ-bronzilla: In that case you can repair the damage08:10
BeldarGatis, dpkg --get-selections > ~/my-packages  it willbe in home08:11

BeldarGatis, In home will be a text file called my-packages if you run the command08:12

GatisBeldar, how can i list my packages by name?08:13
TJ-bronzilla: first entry is that cryptic looking hash, known as the passphrase, second entry is the user's new account password which wraps the passphrase08:13
TJ-atlanx__: did you "sudo modprobe nvidiabl type=firmware"  ?08:13
BeldarGatis, The command I gave you does I use it as a reinstall when needed.08:14
bronzillaTJ-: now you tell me :) trying08:14
littlegigsBeldar, how do i find out if im using gnome fallback, as far as im aware i installed ubuntu 14.04 then the Gnome 3 environment... My login screen is the Gnome login screen08:14
Beldarlittlegigs, The gnome-shell?08:14
GatisBeldar, i want to list packges starting with lightdm..08:14

BeldarGatis, Than say that.08:15
k1l_Gatis: dpkg -l | grep lightdm08:15
atlanx__TJ- : i do now and restart then08:15
k1l_Gatis: and if you say exactly where the problem is people can help you way better08:15
TJ-atlanx__: you'll need to add another setting first08:15
TJ-atlanx__: You'll need to add "nvidiabl" to the end of "/etc/modules"08:16
atlanx__TJ- . ok08:16
PetazzHi! I cannot get sudo working with NOPASSWD08:16
TJ-atlanx__: That way the module will be inserted using the options in nvidiabl.conf08:17
PetazzI currently have in visudo: myuser ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL08:17
Beldarlittlegigs, I use the shell, with hexchat, xchat would work however. There are gnome 3 extensions as well there is a website.08:17

ubottuUbuntu 11.10 and higher use GNOME 3 with the !unity shell by default. To use GNOME Shell instead, from 12.10 and up install the "ubuntu-gnome-desktop" package. From 11.04 to 12.04, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown. Using Natty? See !classic09:58

rottingdeadHello, having some issues here..  I have an Optimus Nvidia+Intel setup, I have 2 files I need, but require xrandr, I cannot figure out where to put those, I've tried /etc/X11/xinitrc/xinitrc.d/ and /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d but it's not working, I'm generally a Gentoo user, but just got my laptop back from repair, and didn't feel like waiting on all those compiles again, anybody know?11:23
rottingdeadI put the 40-gfx(xorg.conf file) in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and the 00-nvidia one in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/ it works in Gentoo like that, but not in Ubuntu11:24

MuchozI dualbooted a Windows 8 with Ubuntu 14.04 and changed the grub settings so it would wait 5 seconds and boot into Windows, else you could select Ubuntu. We used boot-repair and everything was fine, we could boot into Ubuntu. But once we boot into Windows, it doesn't go to the grub anymore. I have disabled secure boot and Windows Fastboot. Then I have also installed Ubuntu with an EFI partition and a swap partition. Can someone please tell me how to14:17

ActionParsnipcemc: if you use /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head   and add the nameservers to the bottom of the file it will supercede the ones given by DHCP16:00
cfhowlettannoymouse, no mac experience here.16:00

andersonI am using the latest and most to date ubuntu. I use notify-send and it does not work unless I give it a critical level. I have read much and googled and it looks like maybe there is screensaver that is stopping it? I am not sure but I have tried to kill any and all screensavers to see if that would make a differance and it has not.16:02

ActionParsnipanderson: what is the output of:   cat /etc/issue16:02
andersonActionParsnip: That sounds good. One sec.16:02
ActionParsnipanderson: no need to pastebin, its a single line of output16:04
annoymousecfhowlett: It doesn't have anything to do with having a Mac or not. I just am unsure about some of the installer options in Ubuntu 14.04.116:04
cfhowlettannoymouse, direct your questions / details to the channel in general.16:05
andersonActionParsnip: I thank you. But at this moment I have a tail -f on that file and then try to reproduce the error in many ways, but I can not. There is another machine that gives me the same trouble. I really thank you for your help. I bet this will lead me to figure it out.16:05
ActionParsnipanderson: the command just outputs one line, what does it say16:06
andersonActionParsnip: I tried and there is nothing in the output.16:06
ActionParsnipanderson: you dont need tail at all, just run the command I gave and paste the output in the chanel16:06

ActionParsnip!away > Ririshi16:09
ubottuRirishi, please see my private message16:09
annoymouseOkay. I figured out that I should select New partition table.... Is it okay/necessary to install the bootloader onto the same device as Ubuntu?16:11
annoymouseWhat's the /swap partition?16:14
bazhang!swap | annoymouse16:15
ubottuannoymouse: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info16:15
ActionParsnipannoymouse: its like the pagefile in windows, but Linux us smart enough to use a separate partition for it to reduce fragmentatin16:15
annoymousebazhang: So basically sacrificing storage space for more "RAM"?16:16
annoymouseDo I need it?16:16
ObrienDaveannoymouse, how ch RAM do you have?16:16
Akiva-Thinkpadhey brian lunduke just posted an ignorant review on Ubuntu Unity, where he calls the Dash, "The HUD",16:16
Akiva-Thinkpadpost in the comments to tell him how wrong he is.16:17
cemcActionParsnip: no good. I've added the nameserver in head, but the other nameservers from DHCP still get added in resolv.conf16:17
ActionParsnipannoymouse: depends how much RAM you have and what you use your system for16:17
ActionParsnipcemc: it will, but the lines you add in the head file will be used first16:17
annoymouseActionParsnip: So if I don't want more RAM, I don't need to make a /swap partition?16:17
ObrienDaveAkiva-Thinkpad, who is brian lunduke and why should we care about his opinion?16:17
ActionParsnipcemc: the head file contains the lines that get added to /etc/resolv.conf to say "don't edit this file"16:18
Akiva-ThinkpadObrienDave, he used to be the co host of the linux action show16:18
Akiva-Thinkpadthe largest linux podcast in the word16:18
bazhang!ot | Akiva-Thinkpad16:18
ubottuAkiva-Thinkpad: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!16:18
ActionParsnipannoymouse: no if you have 32Gb RAM and want to web browse and chat you will never touch swap16:18
ActionParsnipannoymouse: unless you need hibernate functionality16:18
MiraCZhey there16:18
cemcActionParsnip: I know that, but I don't want the others in there at all ;) can that be done somehow?16:18
annoymouseActionParsnip: Is there any other partitions that can/should be made?16:19
ActionParsnipcemc: not sure there but if the DNS server you set work then the lines will never be in effect16:19
ActionParsnipannoymouse: you can make a swap file if you want, it will do the same16:19
annoymouseI'll pass16:19
MiraCZI have got Ubuntu server and I got it when I was trying things what is it capable of and so, now I'd like to clean the server, I believe there are things that I dont need and that makes my server slower, can you guys send me link to some tutorial about cleaning/restoring Ubuntu?16:19
annoymousethanks ActionParsnip16:19
ObrienDaveannoymouse, most people like separate / and /home partitions16:19
Nach0zseparate / and /home make it easier to recover from having to reinstall a bricked installation16:20
ActionParsnipcemc: you could add a command to run after a while to remove the lines from the file, but its purely cosmetic, and considering you won't be poking around in that file in day to day usage, its hardly worth the actual effort16:20
annoymouseObrienDave: /home is for all the user data, correct?16:20
cfhowlettMiraCZ, do you know your installation date?16:20
Nach0zalso makes it easier to share a /home directory between multiple linux installations16:20
ObrienDaveannoymouse, correct16:20
MiraCZ1-2 years ago16:20
annoymouseObrienDave: Is there any advantage to separating / and /home, or is it just a common thing to do?16:21
ObrienDave<Nach0z> separate / and /home make it easier to recover from having to reinstall a bricked installation16:21
ActionParsnipannoymouse: it makes reinstalls easier, as well as backups16:21
ActionParsnipannoymouse: it also keeps user data away from system data.16:21
cfhowlettMiraCZ, cat /var/log/dpkg*          will show ALL the packages you installed.16:21
MiraCZthank you, cfhowlett16:22
ActionParsnipannoymouse: if you are asking all these questions I suggest you let Ubuntu do it's thing. It is aimed at users of your level of ability16:22
cfhowlettMiraCZ, happy2help16:22
annoymouseActionParsnip: What do you mean "do it's thing"?16:22
MonkeyDustannoymouse  without you changing anything16:23
ObrienDaveannoymouse, the disadvantage is you have to decide how large to make the / partition. kind of like deciding how many minutes of a cell phone plan to buy16:23
xangua10 fit, 20 regular, 50 big, done16:24
annoymouseOkay. I'm just going to use the Installer. My only question is what should I select for "Device for bootloader installation"?16:24

cfhowlettCoolApps, in other words "clean install" is the better option.  use torrents to get 14.04.116:29
CoolAppsOk, I have a lot of blank discs hanging around so I might as well use them. :P16:30

annoymouseikonia: "No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu."16:40

ObrienDaveannoymouse, because we thought you were installing to a USB DRIVE17:10
expungeMiraCZ: rmdir is safer, it removes only empty directories17:10
annoymouseObrienDave: I though I said it was a stick, but sorry if I didnt17:10
expungeand rsync can be easily resumed, whereas cp cannot be17:10
expungeannoymouse: doesn't matter if it's a stick17:10
annoymouseObrienDave: So just / partition?17:10
expungestorage is storage17:10
annoymouseBut it's smaller17:11
MonkeyDustannoymouse  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent#Making_partitions17:11
expungeannoymouse: just / is fine, but swap can be very useful17:11
ActionParsnipRobbieCrash: same, as well as /tmp. Works well17:11
expungeswap can be in a file, however17:11
annoymouseexpunge: I have 8GB of RAM, I doubt I'll need /swap17:11

expungeantimist: does it ever work?17:13
ObrienDaveannoymouse, you DON'T need partitions on a 8GB stick, jeez louise17:13
expungeRobbieCrash: doesn't matter17:13
expungeyou don't need more than one on any storage medium17:13
antimistexpunge: used to before today17:13
* ObrienDave means separate17:14
RobbieCrashexpunge I get that, I'm thinking about usage patterns. If it's a server install, it's less likely that you're going to load up your home dir and kill writes to /17:14
expungeantimist: in this install?17:14
antimistexpunge: yup, used to work but all of a sudden it stopped17:14
antimistI can still use an external mouse though17:15

someguyCan anyone help me autostarting a GUI program that requires sudo? More info here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/514209/auto-starting-a-gui-application-that-requires-sudo17:15
expungeantimist: does it show up in xinput --list?17:15
expungesomeone: gksu?17:15
RobbieCrashSo, less of a need to partition things. But on a desktop install, I'd avoid keeping /home and /var on an 8GB stick as I'm way more likely to save stuff to my home dir permanently.17:15
antimistchecking now17:15
RobbieCrashexpunge there's no difference between desktop and server usage patterns?17:16
Bazyloti have an issue: i assign hotkey (XF86AudioMute, exactly)  in System preferences but it's not working can someone help me ?17:16

someguyac, I guess.. I'll try, but people told me it would not work with GUI in ubuntuforums.. Anyway, the <password> after "echo" is my acc password, right?17:43
khildinSam_Sully, chmod +x <script.sh> then sudo ./script.sh17:43
DramorsWhy would he sudo some random script?17:44
someguysomething weird is happening17:44
DramorsUnless you know exactly what the script does and you're required to run it as root, don't use sudo17:44
khildinHe should be carefull if he doesn't know what the script does... sure...17:44
acsomeguy: yes the password that you enter for sudo command, for running a GUI program you should set variable called "DISPLAY" default display is :0.0 I think you can put this command in script : export DISPLAY=:0.017:45
someguyac, so I just add that command in the rc.local file?17:45
someguyac, as a stand-alone line?17:46
expungeyou can just specify it inline if it's a one-liner: DISPLAY=:0 foo17:46
expungeps aux | grep X will give you the precise number/s17:46
acsomeguy: its better you write an script that has export command + vpn gui runner  and put "sh /path/to/script" in that rc.local17:47
someguyexpunge, are you talking to me?17:47
expungesomeguy: yup17:47
ActionParsnipsomeguy: is there a possibility to run a script when the vpn is created?17:47

someguyActionParsnip, I've no clue whatsoever17:48
someguyActionParsnip, what do you mean "when the vpn is created"?17:48

acbut I'm not sure about17:50
someguyac, should I just add it in line then? like this: " DISPLAY=:0 echo <PASSWORD> | /path/to/vpn "17:50

BoscopBeldar: can i fix it from tehre?19:22

cnaphello I am having a tiny issue21:21
JokeOnYou77Ben64, that's what i said...21:21
jhutchinscnap: What did you try to do?  How did you try to do it?  What did you expect to happen?  What happened instead?21:21
cnapI am using ubuntu 14.04 and apache2 didnt seem to have a conf.d folder21:21
cipherson<decwrl> you could just disable post-install conf21:21
Ben64JokeOnYou77: it is not what you said21:21
cipherson<decwrl> and figure out where it sets that option and script it21:22
JokeOnYou77Ben64, ok. On the SSD /home/Jokes,  on the other drive is /home and everyone else will be in /home21:22
decwrl<cipherson> How to I do that?  Is it part of apt-get?21:22
ciphersonummm checking21:23
Ben64JokeOnYou77: well /home/Jokes is where the ssd will be mounted, but those directories won't be on there21:23
Bazylcnap, how were you looking for conf.d directory ?21:23
Ben64JokeOnYou77: follow this guide, just replace /home in any commands or whatever with /home/Jokes https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home/Moving21:23

cipherson<decwrl> you could try: export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get -y install [packagename]21:24
ciphersonthat should ignore the interactive install but then when you first run the application it may want the answer21:25
decwrl<cipherson>  I'll try that.  Sounds like the best way to go.21:25
cipherson<decwrl> still trying to find the script way for you21:25
decwrlIt's only one option that gets set in /etc/default/kdump-tools, so I can just sed that after installation if there's no way to force the answer into the installation process.21:26
Bazylcnap, try "sudo find / -name conf.d"21:27

mrobIt's recognized fine in X but when I switch the the console it's ignored21:57
daftykinsdo you mean TTYs?21:58
daftykinsspecifying an EDID to X won't give TTY's a native resolution21:58
