collizionFlannel: i would love to see someone erase all their groups using useradd/usermod - thats just FUD00:00
funtaimo its FUD00:00
Flannelcollizion: You haven't been here long, eh?00:00
collizionFlannel: not gonna indulge you, dude.00:00
Flannelcollizion: usermod -G (when you forget or mistype the -a) will REPLACE a user's group instead of ADDING it.  Which means you, for instance, are no longer in the admin group.00:01
reisioit's possible, but not really a reason to use adduser, IMO00:01
reisiouseradd is standard across distros00:01

samthewildoneQuestion my ubuntu friends... is it possible to output the cache from apt-get in text file with a command that works ? " cat sudo apt-cache search qmake  > /home/samthewildone/Desktop/output.txt" does not.00:30
samthewildoneI want to be able to forward the output to a file, does the command have to be in " " for it work or ... no ?00:31
funtablackangelpr: how does hosting providers console access works when user forgets his pass? 1 more root somewhere?00:31
funtaof say OS reinstall00:31
k1lsamthewildone: the cat is too much00:31
samthewildonek1l, guide me my Great Master00:32
somsipsamthewildone: apt-cache search qmake > myfile.txt works fine00:32
samthewildoneI'd figure it was something along the lines...00:32
samthewildonesomsip, as sudo -s right ?00:32
somsipsamthewildone: no need for apt-cache00:32
samthewildoneah yes00:32
k1lsamthewildone: "sudo apt-cache search qmake  > qmaketestfile"  that will make a qmaketestfile in your home.00:32
blackangelprfunta, i have no idea honestly at all XD00:32
funtaoki :D00:33
k1lsamthewildone: the standard path, when you open your terminal is your /home/user folder00:33
samthewildoneso when do I really use the "cat" command ?00:34
somsipsamthewildone: when you want to view the contents of a file. Usually text00:34
samthewildoneI guess ..."man cat" will explain00:34
samthewildoneah ok00:34
k1lsamthewildone: to get a file to be printed onto the screen00:34
samthewildonelike /var/log/*.log00:35
k1lwell, "man command" will always explain :)00:35
somsipsamthewildone: less might be better for larger files00:35
k1land if you dont know about man, do man man :)00:35
* samthewildone smilies and exploits the cat command00:35
samthewildonesomsip, example please ?00:35
samthewildonecat /var/log/*.log > ~/Desktop/ex.txt | less ?00:36
somsipsamthewildone: less filename.log00:36
k1lsamthewildone: less lets you scroll. cat just blasts everything into the terminal00:36
samthewildonenot sure I follow somsip00:36
k1lso if its a log with 23865287658265826525 lines, you might just see the last 1000 since that is what your terminal will buffer for you.00:37
samthewildonehow would I write that in term ?00:37
somsipsamthewildone: I don't how more simple it can be. less /path/to/file00:37
samthewildonedoes the "less" macro come before the file output ?00:37
k1lsamthewildone: ok, for putting stuff into another file you use cat. less is for "reading on the terminal"00:37
TTNjust try it yourself, read the manual00:37
TTNplay around00:38
samthewildoneTTN, I can't read00:38
samthewildoneTTN, I'm from krypton00:38
somsipsamthewildone: yeah, I remember why I ignored you before now.00:38
samthewildonesomsip, for real though, just use less from the beginning ?00:38
TTNlol what does that even mean.00:39
TTNI hope you're kidding00:39
samthewildonelet me try00:39
k1lsamthewildone: did you read what i wrote?00:39
squintysamthewildone:  when to use one over the other depends on circumstances... good way to find out what those various circumstances entail is to experiment00:40
samthewildonek1l, For real though, can you post an real example ? I'm getting an error ?00:41

sydneyOsgood: You want to do what? Format your flashdrive to fat32 again?00:46

dan64I noticed that wine was mysteriously removed from my computer. I just used it a few days ago, but it wasn't there today. I see in the /var/log/apt/history.log log that it was in fact removed a few days ago. As far as I can tell, it got removed when I updated the video card drivers (based on the packages that were installed). I did update the video drivers using the driver utility in Ubuntu (software-properties-gtk --open-tab=4). Any idea wine would be removed00:52
dan64 when installing drivers? From the logs, aptdaemon was the program responsible for intalling the drivers and removing wine.00:52
TTNlol ok. I thought you said you were kidding all along and knew how to already .sorry00:52

OsgoodMy issue is I can get Skype to work, though I can't get the microphone to work.00:54
dan64Regarding my last comment, removing wine may have had nothing to do with installing the drivers. I suppose I may have installed wine as a consequence of installing some other package, and if that was removed at some point, I suppose apt may have just been doing an autoremove. Anyhow, it's now installed again and working. If anyone has any insight as to why this may have happened, please let me know.00:54

I hit the enter key in what I suspect is the Grub and it gave me a weird blinking line at the top left o00:59
T1960CTf my screen then Lubuntu booted with a baby blue background. Any ideas on how to remove the approximately 10 second wait time before it actually boots?00:59

hmwI installed the MATE Desktop and i see the window icon again (Top left, clicking on it shows the menu one gets by pressing ALT+SPACE). Once I issue "compiz --replace" that icon disappears. I tried to search the web for a solution without luck so far. Do you perhaps know, how I can get Compiz AND my lovely window icon?01:23
DoverMohmw: i don't know. mate might need to be configured for it, as fedora has a spin that specifically is configured with mate and compiz01:25
DoverMohmw: which means it can work. just not sure01:25
hmwAlso, I tried to "unload" Compiz with "metacity --replace" but it isn't installed. What do I have to load in order to stop Compiz?01:25
DoverMohmw: why metacity01:26
hmwDoverMo: that's what I had to do in Ubuntu 12 in order to get rid of Compiz.01:27
hmwWhen I kill it, I am left without any window decorations, of course01:27
Ben64i don't think mate and compiz work well together01:27
hmwBen64: They sort of do in my case. No big issues in 3 days at least.01:28
Ben64aren't you here because of an issue with it01:28

hmwI usually tweak .themes/c2/metacity-1/metacity-theme-1.xml for that icon, as also for the order of Minimize, Maximize icons. But for some reason Ubuntu 14's Compiz appears to have no Metacity built in anymore or something.01:30

Ben64and compiz never has metacity built in01:33
hmwBen64: I used to "undo" compiz --replace by issuing metacity --replace. I would like to know, how to stop Compiz nowadays. I tried "gtk-window-decorator" but it doesn't unload Compiz.01:35

shurtagulHow do I update 2.8.10 to the newest version in ubuntu?01:37
ubottuPackages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.01:38

shurtagulI know, I want to install 2.8.1401:38
Ben64then go for it, but you're on your own with that01:39
DoverMoshurtagul: so far, only debian unstable has an actual package of that. You will have to either use a PPA, cuz there should be like a 2.9/2.10 ppa, or just compile it yourself01:40

archerbassamman apt03:19

rwpnishantjr_, apt-get purge packagename03:20
rwpnishantjr_, If that doesn't work then say what error is given.03:20
rwpnishantjr_, Dropbox being a non-distro package may have bugs and may need special editing help of the package postrm file to work.03:21
nishantjr_E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.03:21

archerbassamI am wondering if autoremove can get this done03:22
rwpnishantjr_, What does it say if you run "dpkg --configure -a'?03:22
nishantjr_It's broken apt for me... any command I run tell me to configure, and when I configure, the dropbox post install hangs03:23
rwpThat triggers dpkg to run the package configuration scripts again.03:23
rwpThen I would try removing it.  apt-get purge packagename03:23
nishantjr_Purge gives the same error message03:23
nishantjr_From reading the dpkg man page, I figured that dselect might help, but I don't have it installed'03:24
rwpdpkg is the lowest level.  dselect and apt-get are layers above dpkg.03:24
nishantjr_Package: nautilus-dropbox03:24
nishantjr_Status: install ok half-configured03:25
rwpBasically dpkg should be okay within itself.  But it runs the package scripts. If those error then that causes overall error as you see.03:25
rwpIf you can't go forward and you can't go back then it will be because the package scripts produce errors.03:25
rwpIn that case you need to manually force the package scripts not to cause errors.  Then purge.03:25
rwpTo manually force package scripts not to error manually edit the scripts and add an "exit 0" line at the top so that they simply exit doing nothing.03:26
nishantjr_OK... Could I manually edit the upgrade script somehow? Or are hashes checked?03:26
=== sg is now known as Guest17058
rwpThe scripts are stored at /var/lib/dpkg/info/packagename.postinst and other packagename.* names.03:26
rwpYou can manually edit those scripts as a workaround. They are not special. There is no check sum.03:27
nishantjr_Great, that worked rwp03:27
nishantjr_Thanks a lot03:27
rwpTo avoid problems during a rmeove or purge you will need to hack the packagename.postrm and/or packagename.prerm to exit without error.03:27
rwpGood deal!03:27

nishantjr_mmm... "rc".03:35
rwpThen it is removed but /etc config files remain for it.03:35
nishantjr_OK.. I've got etckeeper anyway... so not a problem03:36
rwpSince you were already in /var/lib/dpkg/info/ ...  If you look in /var/lib/dpkg/info/dropbox-nautilus.list it will show the files remaining behind.03:36
dalekusaI have Linux Mint, could I install it from there, or will I require a disk?03:36
rwpDoing a "dpkg --purge dropbox-nautilus" will completely remove all files.03:36
rwpThat should get dpkg happy.  Which should get apt-get happy.03:37
rwpAt that point you can decide if you want to try again with the same package. Debug the package. Try a different package. Or other decision.03:37

mharrisnarbeh: It's never really save to set perms to 777 on anything.  Nothing needs it (with the exception of things like /tmp et al).  Documentation that suggests using 777 is generally written and endorsed by people who do not understand filesystem permissions and just set them wide open rather than learning. :)06:40
ph0xis what error.log says06:40
mharrisnarbeh: If a program needs to read files in a directory, then it needs to have read permission of some sort.  That means it either has to be the owner of the file(s)/dir(s) and have read permission on owner, or it needs to be the member of the group that owns the file and has group read.  If given files are not sensitive to sharing read-only across all users/processes, then world read can be set on them also.  The same thing is true with write,06:42
mharrisbut the consequences of world write can be dangerous and should generally be avoided.06:42
mharrisIf you need finer grained permissions for a given app/user/group of users you can also use POSIX ACLs with the setfacl command.  Hope this helps.06:43

cynicallemonwait until systemd becomes the #1 attack vector09:15
rwsq1cynicallemon, I think the point is that everything is out in the open09:15

rwsq1this is by far the worst bug I've encountered in 14 years, and it's been sorted out reasonably efficiently, and it's actually probably not as severe as first thought. But the point is we can all see what's happening. If it was a bug in OSX or Windows we woudln't know what was going on until there was an update.09:16

tdnrwsq1, also, I have used virtualbox on 12.04 before. I just recently had to reinstall. And now it does not work.09:53

laykeHi. I'm finding it impossible to use chrome on my fresh 14.04 install. I notice xorg and chrome seem to run at 100% CPU and I end up having 4-8 seconds inbetween any user input and mouse clicks09:53
jargon_blk: good point09:54
_blkjargon, you may want to set root's password first!09:54
rwsq1tdn, it could be that the 12.04 kernel has changed in recent releases and this has caused incompatibility with virtualbox - you would need to check the changelog09:54
jargon_blk: i already did :-)09:54
Ben64jargon: alternatively, learn how to use sudo properly09:54
_blkjargon, I would go with Ben64's suggestion to use sudo09:55

Fuchslast_staff: this should not be needed, policykit will take care of permissions10:56
last_staffFuchs: by the way, I tried running it from the terminal10:56

last_staffI mean "forced to"11:30
abadaynote there is no '' around my echo HEJ in the output. which i need to have11:30
Fuchslast_staff: you shouldn't be11:31
Fuchslast_staff: if, you can install and use something such as gksudo. Or check if policykit  (pkexec) does the job11:31
k1llast_staff: you are not forced to run gui with sudo.11:32
LainProtocol7blackyboy: So it forwards to https, but then there's an issue?11:32
last_staffk1l: yeah I know, that's why I put it in quotation marks right afterwards11:33
blackyboyLainProtocol7: yes page not loading may be my ssl configuration was not good means how can i troubleshoot it11:33
last_staffbasically I want to run synaptic instead of sudo apt-get whatever11:33
LainProtocol7blackyboy: SSL certificates tend to be valid for domain.com, OR www.domain.com, unless you have a wildcard certificate. If so, you shouldn't set an alias for the *.443 domain, and instead you should catch requests and forward them on to the domain you're primarily using11:34
brontosaurusrexabaday: try #bash11:35
blackyboyyes its wildcard certificate11:35
k1llast_staff: again, dont use sudo. we have gksu or gksudo for that. but synaptic should provide an request for entering the pw when started as regular program11:35
LainProtocol7blackyboy: Not sure then, you'd need to look in your log files to see what error Apache is reporting11:36
last_staffk1l: and it does. Only, after the password has been entered, the main window is never displayed11:36
rwsq1tdn - I would imagine that it will upgrade to that version and rebuild the dkms but you could remove the old one first if you want11:37
last_staffk1l: and apparently it's crashed, because I can't see the program in the task manager (including all users)11:37
=== AlphaBeta is now known as PsiOmega
LainProtocol7blackyboy: My Virtualhost has a line for "SSLCertificateChainFile" where I specify the Certificate chain bundle, which yours is missing11:37
LainProtocol7blackyboy: Don't know if this is mandatory though11:37
blackyboyLainProtocol7: just now i have tried the chain file in .pem format still its showing error wait let me look into logs11:39

=== john__ is now known as dull_john

=== dull_john is now known as roamer
Fuchslast_staff: well yes, the root cause is running graphical (X11) applications with sudo, which should not be done, because with regular sudo  (not -i) the user environment is kept, hence files are written / modified in your home, some of them being core X stuff like .XAuthority12:03

Zerock|LittleRedsebastianlutter: I'm not using any remote desktop software, since there isn't any that respects my freedom.14:18
AlexeyPetrenkoikonia: Yep, I'm sure it should be. Would be nice to know how to configure X this way.14:19
Zerock|LittleRedaren't any that respect*14:19
EriC^^wadie: it's not persistent though, if you want it you can make a script and add it to ~/.profile14:19
sebastianlutterZerock|LittleRed, I feel the same way14:19
ikoniaAlexeyPetrenko: you basically just do a "loadmod" in theh xorg.conf, but I'll need to check the info as I'm working from memory and not %100 sure I'm right14:19
Zerock|LittleRedsebastianlutter: I actually run Trisquel Mini on this machine.14:19
Zerock|LittleRedUbuntu at work, and Parabola at home.14:20
wadiewhat do you mean not persistent ? :O how can I create that script ?14:20
EriC^^wadie: the last command btw for xrandr to switch the resolution is xrandr -s 1600x120014:20
wadieI used xrandr VGA1 1600x1200 and it worked14:20
EriC^^wadie: yes also xrandr --output VGA1 1600x1200 works14:20
wadieso about that script14:21
wadiewhat does it include14:21
sebastianlutterZerock|LittleRed, if all that ipv4 subnet / firewall / masquerating stuff would be replaced by ipv6 (a global accessible ip for any device) I guess VNC would do what I want.14:21
EriC^^take the commands and put them in a file, call it something, then chmod +x <script>14:21
Zerock|LittleRedsebastianlutter: Out of curiosity, what do you need the software for?14:22
EriC^^and in ~/.profile add "bash <script>"14:22
wadieyou mean the xrandr things ?14:22
EriC^^wadie: yeah14:22
Zerock|LittleRedI did things the hard (read: easy) way, and switched my friends and family to GNU+Linux so I could use ssh.14:22
wadieso I'll create a bash script with the xrandr commands, move it to ~/.profile then chmod +x14:22
EriC^^wadie: put it anywhere you want, add the path to ~/.profile , bash /path/to/script14:23
sebastianlutterZerock|LittleRed, my setup involves a gentoo with i3 wm and a ubuntu 14.04. I have a crawler for an research project running on my office ubuntu box. But I need about an hour from home to the office, and want to check If everything is well (and maybe restart things) without beeing forced to go there.14:23
EriC^^wadie: if you want you can call it ~/.resolution.sh so it'll be hidden14:23
sebastianlutterZerock|LittleRed, it has some GUI elements, so ssh alone does not solve my problem, so VNC or something like this is needed14:24
HoNgOuRuhi, my system freezes sometimes after hitting the /home/user folder icon, sometimes it comes back to normality, some others don't.... my home folder /home is in an independent partition from the system.... should I check the partition for disk errors ? or what? I am running ubuntu 14.04... any help will be appreciated...btw, the system / was reformatted yesterday cause I had some laggy situations before...14:27
wadieEric can you link me to a documentation online because I'm not really sure I'm doing it right14:31
roamerEriC^^ : sorry for late reply my internet connection was gone. can you please tell me the next step after apt-get install?14:31
drmagooHoNgOuRu: sounds like disc issues, so a check would be a good idea14:32
Abhijitpppoe-setup says pppoe.conf not found. i did apt-get install pppoe but package is already installed. can not connect to dnl14:33
HoNgOuRudrmagoo, ok... do I have to be root? have the /home unmounted?14:36
Abhijitpppoeconf gives SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not possible due to RF-kill14:36
adriennboxhi everyone, i have no more mouse and internet on ubuntu 14.0414:36
adriennboxsomebody know why?14:36
varunendraAbhijit, does this system have Network Manager installed? You can use that to set up a DSL connection.14:38
Abhijitvarunendra, networkmanager also does not connect. hence I am here in irc.14:38
LainProtocol7adriennbox: 14.04 doesn't support mice or internet14:38
drmagooHoNgOuRu: how proficient are you with linux ? For the best result you should boot from a livecd and run the scan from that.. Unless you are running some sort of encryption on that directory/disc14:38
varunendraadriennbox, since when do you have these absent?14:38
adriennboxsince 3 days14:39
HoNgOuRudrmagoo, ok, I got it... I'll do that... shall I use fsck ?14:39
adriennboxi can reinstall but i dont want to lose file14:39
varunendraAbhijit, is the interface up? And are you trying this over wireless?14:39
Abhijitvarunendra, for pppoe i got only ethernet cable. modem do not support mifi.14:39
adriennboxlainprotocol17 really? so i have to use another version?14:40
=== carlos is now known as Guest30935
adriennboxwich version?14:40
Abhijitvarunendra, this is for railwire btw14:40
EriC^^roamer: sorry, im back14:40
EriC^^roamer: grub-install --recheck /dev/sda14:40
HoNgOuRudrmagoo, can I just logout from this session log as root unmount /home and do the same ?14:40
varunendraadriennbox, just ignore the "doesn't support" comment.14:40
EriC^^wadie: sorry14:40
EriC^^wadie: can you pastebin your script?14:40
varunendraadriennbox, did it happen after an update or any particular development?14:41
HoNgOuRuroamer, I did that just yesterday14:41
roamerEriC^^ : welcome back, I have done as you asked no errors reported14:41
HoNgOuRuroamer, if you need a hand...14:41
adriennboxvarunendra i dont remember sorry... but i use live ubuntu14:41
adriennboxmy sister used live ubuntu instead14:41
EriC^^wadie: ~/.profile is a file, not a directory, add "bash ~/.resolution.sh" to the end of the file, if you named your script .resolution.sh in your home directory14:41
varunendraAbhijit, the "rfkill" thing only interferes with wireless devices. So that error is a bit confusing for me.14:42
roamerEriC^^ : what is the next step?14:42
drmagooHoNgOuRu: I usually run it from a livecd, so that I am sure that there is nothing blocking/using that drive..14:42
EriC^^roamer: update-grub14:42
HoNgOuRudrmagoo, ok14:42
varunendraadriennbox, Live Ubuntu with persistence? (can preserve changes?)14:42
HoNgOuRudrmagoo, ok, thank you14:42
roamerEriC^^ : so finished that too14:42
roamerEriC^^ : next?14:43
EriC^^roamer: grep -i highlight /etc/default/grub14:43
EriC^^roamer: does it return anything?14:43
adriennboxvarunendra i guess no14:44
varunendraAbhijit, please give us a little detail of your setup. Generally, it is a telephone cable from the ISP that plugs into a DLS modem, then an Ethernet cable from the modem to the computer/network-switch14:44
adriennboxlive ubuntu without save14:44
roamerEriC^^ : no it doesn't14:44
EriC^^roamer: ok, try sudo reboot14:44
EriC^^exit first14:44
varunendraadriennbox, if it can't save changes, then it boots with the default configuration everytime. Which means if it was working earlier, it should work on next boot too, unless there is a hardware change.14:45
adriennboxso i have to try normal boot after live boot?14:45
Abhijitvarunendra, this is nothing to do with telephone. direct fibre optic cable. then modem. then rj4514:45
Abhijitvarunendra, nothing else in the setup.14:45
adriennboxvarunendra so i have to try normal boot after live boot?14:45
roamerEriC^^ : Same problem back in to grub rescue>14:45
roamerEriC^^ : :(14:46
varunendraadriennbox, please be specific on where you are having the problem - on a Live session or an installed instance (Ubuntu installed and running from Hard Disk)?14:46
adriennboxvaruendnra it run from harddisk14:46
adriennboxvarunendra after saw the problems (no mouse and no internet) i put the DVD and did live boot14:47
varunendraAbhijit, I'm not familiar with optic fibre connections, but is it different from a regular DSL connection where you need to dial the connection using a username and password?14:47
varunendraadriennbox, and the problem is same in both the Live session and the installed one?14:48
Abhijitvarunendra, no different. its just dsl only.14:48
adriennboxvarunendra nope, live session work very well (mouse and internet) but run from hard ware no mouse and no internet...14:48
EriC^^roamer: if you press esc when the pc boots14:49
EriC^^do you get a boot options menu14:50
felonubuntu 14.04 LTS runs so smooth ... glad i formatted and did a fresh upgrade install.14:50
varunendraadriennbox, okay, then please boot into the installed version (hard disk) and try this first - "sudo modprobe -rv psmouse".... then.. "sudo modprobe -v psmouse". If this doesn't activate the mouse, run these commands in terminal - "xinput"... and .... "lsmod". Then upload their outputs to pastebin and give us the pastebin link.14:52
adriennboxoh nice14:52
adriennboxvarunendra thx i try now14:52
varunendraAbhijit, thought so, since you were trying pppoe. Can you log into the modem interface and check if it (pppoe) can be configured there?14:53
Abhijitvarunendra, i cant login. ethernet interface is not connected.14:54
Battlecruiserhi there14:55
Battlecruiserhas anyone worked around the problem that wine and cuda 6.5 can't be installed together?14:55
Battlecruiser'cause I need both things installed14:55
varunendraAbhijit, then getting the link up is the first problem, pppoe will come later. Please give us the pastebin links of the outputs of - "sudo lshw -C network" and "sudo ethtool eth0".14:55
adriennboxvarunendra thx very much mouse is back, but no wifi...14:56
adriennboxvarunendra what is command for the wifi? thx very much14:56

hsnopiGood morning all. There are a lot of access.log entries showing attempts to break in using the shellshock bug. It attempts to wget ec.z. I'm unable to locate anything regarding that. Does anyone know anything about it?15:04
hsnopiI had already updated my bash shells friday.15:04
varunendraadriennbox, Abhijit sorry went afk, an urgent call..15:06
varunendraadriennbox, for wifi, please follow the instructions at this link and give us the report it asks for : http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=1302422215:06
somsiphsnopi: the attack approach I've read about is is to try to wget a dodgy file, then execute it which installs something more dodgy15:06
hsnopiyeah, that's what I'm seeing. Rkhunter shows no diffs but I'm not sure how to tell if the attack was successful15:07
hsnopi74.201.85.69/ec.z is the main one I'm seeing on a few different machines15:07
varunendraAbhijit, please try this - "sudo ethtool -s eth0 speed 100 duplex full autoneg off". Does it get you connected to the modem? (can you ping it?)15:08
hsnopiI suppose since it was attempted muletiple times frto the same origination it's a sign it failed.15:08
adriennboxvarunendra i try now15:08
daftykinshsnopi: perhaps the bash channel can shed some light, or channels of web servers15:09

reisiohi tick15:42
ticketsince i upgraded to ubuntu 14 (from ubunto 12), i cant run the x seerver anymore :/15:42
varunendrajiohdi, the only thing that causes troubles for me is "two-step-verification" feature of google, where we need to generate an "application password" for specific applications like chat clients. If you haven't enabled 2-step-verification, I can't guess what else could be causing the error (apart from a typo of course).15:42
ticketi now only have the tty to use my ubuntu15:42
jiohdivarunendra, I am not sure about the 2 step thing, if I have that enabled what am I supposed to put in when it asked for my j@gmail.com password other than my password?15:43
holden87Hey guys, one question: If i was looking something nice, stable, with a prolongued support for a laptop (4gb ram), dual core intel 2.1, what would you suggest?15:44
netlarjiohdi: You may need to know if you have 2-step verification15:44
reisioholden87: a table15:44
varunendrajiohdi, if you're not sure, then you don't have it enabled. Google enables it only if opted-in.15:44
adriennboxvarunendra thx i did it15:45
reisioholden87: 'prolonged support' is code for "I will be lazy to the point of not updating for longer than five whole years", right?15:45
jiohdivarunendra, lets assume I have it because I really dont remember one way or the other, then what15:45

jiohdinetlar, 2 step means I have to do two things everytime I log in? if thats the case then I dont have that15:46
adriennboxbut who will see the txt now?15:46
varunendrajiohdi, in this kind of verification, you can authenticate specific systems so that you can log into google account ONLY from THOSE systems. If you try to log on from another system, google sends you a verification code on your mobile.15:46

If it's too late to do that, you can get to a terminal using ctrl+alt+F1 (ctrl+alt+F6/F7 to get back to a GUI), but that probably won't be very easy to use.18:52

Pici!dist-upgrade | milad151219:03
ubottumilad1512: A dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.19:03
theadminmilad1512: First is dumb -- it just upgrades installed packages. Second also takes care of new dependencies.19:03

RWOverdijkSilly question, please no scolding. But how do I check what version of a package I would install without installing it? (apt-get)19:42

CharleneHi I just upgraded to 14.04 and when I log in as a user I can't run any applications I really need to acces the terminal and firefox but I dont' find them when I search on the dashboard - any suggestions?19:50
k1lCharlene: what means: cant run?  press the windows-key in unity and type firefox. does it start firefox?19:51
CharleneHi  - pressing the windows key doesn't do anything sorry19:52
k1lCharlene: what ubuntu are you on exactly?19:53
GetJiggyhello world!19:53
k1lCharlene: which desktop?19:53
Charlenehow do I tell?19:54
k1lCharlene: see this: http://imgur.com/a/9iaLJ19:54
Charlenelooks like unity19:55
k1lCharlene: and on the left there should be a launcher bar where firefox icon should be clickable19:55
Charlenethere is dashboard openoffice word file explorer openoffice excel open office powerpoint USB storage and trash - nothing else19:56
k1lCharlene: so you removed firefox?19:56
Charleneif I click on dashboard and type terminal it doesn't show me any applications only web references19:56
CharleneI added myself to the sudoer19:56
k1lCharlene: what? why that?19:56
CharleneI thought maybe it was a security issue19:57
k1lyou dont need sudo at all in that case.19:57
Charlenethe user I used to use I can't login anymore19:57
CharleneI used to be able to search for any application using the dashboard19:57
k1lCharlene: ok stop. so the main issue is that the old user cant login?19:58
CharleneI didn't think it should be a problem to login as another user19:58
Charlenebut it would be a consistent starting point to login as the old user19:58
k1lso the issue is that you try to login on loginscreen and get looped back into the loginscreen again?19:59
CharleneI can login as that user on the alt-f1 terminal window so the username and password are correct19:59
AndrewW90Charlene: did you change the desktop environment for that user?20:00
Charlenenot sure ohw20:00
k1lok , Charlene so please log into that old-user into konsole and see in that old-users home if the files like ".Xauthority"  belong to old-user:old-user or root:root (test with "ls -al" in that konsole)20:00

k1lCharlene: where old-user is that exact nickname, of course :)20:02

Jordan_USc0tty-: What is the exact command you're trying to run? Please pastebin the exact command, and its exact output using http://pastebin.ubuntu.com and post a link to your paste here.21:52

shibbolethIf I installed a collection of packages using "apt-get install xxxyyyzzz --no-install-recommends" and then find out I need to install the recommended packages later on; what should I do?21:53
dragon_VMWare Fusion has tools built in for Ubuntu ... anyways I've took an image snapshot before the upgrade just to be double sure i'm not breaking everything :P21:53
OerHeksshibboleth, try again, "apt-get install --reinstall xxxyyyzzz"21:54
Hardtail75OerHeks, thanks. I am currently right here in the command line area - http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1022525   it keeps telling me no such dir and the tar is red21:54
Eduard_MunteanuHardtail75, consider trying kvm with a GUI like Boxes or virt-manager, it's pretty much the default option21:54
shibbolethOerHeks: I did, only says that the package is installed21:54

MoPacHowdy. I'm looking to see if there's an easy way to resize the close/minimize/maximize buttons for windows -- the current ones are a pain for my touchscreen and fat fingers. Using default Unity and theme22:13
rymate1234MoPac: in display settings i believe there's an option for monitor scaling?22:15
MoPacrymate1234: unfortunately, that scales everything -- launcher buttons, nautilus places, etc. I'm mostly just looking to resize the three window control buttons22:16
syntroPigeirha, jMyles well thats right i copied it from https://access.redhat.com/articles/1212303   but replacing sh with bash in the test yields same output on my ubuntu 14.04 x64 updated system22:17
rymate1234i dont think there's a way to resize just the window controld22:17
syntroPiso dash and bash seem to behave similar when patched?22:18

HHGOh. the winow that is coming up is titled "installation type" It does'nt say anything on a list that is there, and like i said, it crashes when i click a on screen button22:20
geirhak1l_: again, dash wasn't affected by the bug ...22:20
geirhaanyway, sie cross-posted it to #bash and got our version of the tests there22:21
k1l_geirha: yes. was talking about the right test. the mentioned oneliner seemed to be wrong anyway22:22

navetzi am connecting to a windows 2003 server using pptp22:54
navetzor at least trying to22:54
tootheI'm trying to install mod_cgi on Apache, but the Apache documentation says to edit httpd.conf. I don't have an httpd.conf.22:54
navetzLaban, i am trying to connect to a windows server vpn22:55
Kruggertry /etc/apache2/apache.conf22:55
Kruggerand update your bash package before using mod_cgi ;)22:56
Labantoothe: You should symlink files from /etc/apache2/mods-available into mods-enabled.22:56
Labannavetz: Are you getting any error message?22:56
navetzLaban, The VPN connection failed because the vpn service failed to start22:58
LabanOohh I've seen that before..22:59
tootheokay, I only saw cgid.conf/.load in /etc/apache2/mods-available23:00
navetzany idea how I can fix it23:00
Labannavetz: I don't remember the details, it's been a while and that service I connected to is no longer available.23:01
LabanI've got mine set to "all users may connect to this network", there was something around this (or other) setting.23:01

reisiowhy'd you turn it off23:04
navetzreisio, it doesn't allow me to in the network manager23:05
Labanreisio: No users left in the company uses it, and since last week, it had no internet connection.23:05

reisiohow long is a while?23:46
fancyfetusAre there any incompatibilities with ubuntu running on a mac these days? If so is there a place where I can see them?23:47
reisiooh this is your made up justification for spending 200% on a mac? :p23:47
fancyfetusreisio, 3 years at least?23:47
fancyfetusreisio, nope23:47
reisioI'm not aware of any of any significance23:47
fancyfetusI'm choosing between two similarly priced computers.23:47
reisiomacs actually come with Unix, it just doesn't have a package manager23:47

fancyfetusOne a macbook pro and one an asus zebook ultrabook23:47

reisioasus actually uses linux some for fast-boot stuff23:48
fancyfetusHeadlessTracer, how old was the iMac? Is it possible that the situation has improved more recently?23:48
reisiowell imacs are from about the 1700s23:48
HeadlessTracerfancyfetus: this is an imac late 201323:48
fancyfetusThis is the Asus Zenbook if you're curious http://www.amazon.com/Zenbook-UX303LN-DB71T-Quad-HD-Display-Touchscreen/dp/B00KTL21RA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1411657408&sr=8-1&keywords=Asus+Zenbook+UX30323:48
fancyfetusThe price was 1299 just yesterday23:49
fancyfetusso same price as a 128GB macbook pro retina equivalent.23:49
reisioif you can afford it, then you can afford it23:49
HeadlessTracerwill you ever use OS X on the machine? if not, dont get the macbook23:50
reisioI'd go so "far" as to say that if you can afford it at all, it doesn't matter whether you buy that or something a third of the price23:50
fancyfetusThough it has a discrete GPU, a better CPU, twice the storage and a much higher res screen. It has a meh battery and that screen res is... to high?23:50
fancyfetusHeadlessTracer, I don't think I'd use osx23:50
fancyfetusMore of a windows guy...23:50
HeadlessTracerI just recently switched from windows to ubuntu 12.0423:51
fancyfetusreisio, sure it does. I'm going for 3 things. As thin as possible, at least 1080p screen and the best battery life i can get. All while having greater than chromebook level specs.23:52
fancyfetusHeadlessTracer, why not 14.04?23:52
reisiono it doesn't matter23:52
HeadlessTracerfancyfetus: 14.04 has issues with my system, though it seems many things are supported on 12.04 for a long while to come23:53
reisiothe reasoning for getting a cheaper laptop (besides that it's mostly more sensible) is that you can't afford something more expensive23:53
reisioyou obviously can, so it's academic23:53
ZZRMikefancyfetus: have you looked at lenovo's lineup? I'm joining the conversation a bit late but I've been fairly happy with my U430, aside from the god forsaken intel wireless drivers.23:53
HeadlessTraceralso, Quad-HD touchscreen display (3200 x 1800) thats a seriously insane res for a 13.3" display23:53
fancyfetusHeadlessTracer, I know, right?!23:54
HeadlessTracerthats probably where the discrete gpu will be used most, powering this haha23:54
fancyfetusZZRMike, I have. I can't find anything that comes close to the asus zenbook I posted above. Though if there was something with similar specs, I'd jump on it. Generally in my eyes Lenovo > asus23:54
fancyfetusHeadlessTracer, honestly, the discrete gpu in my eyes is a battery killer. I'd rather have it off23:55
