ghandii got some weird problems installing 14.1000:10
TotallyNotMikeyPhow do i choose to wipe and install? i want it on a seperate partition00:10
lawn_gnomeTotallyNotMikeyP: try booting windows and using the disk utility to resize its partition00:11
lawn_gnomethen install Ubuntu in the empty space00:12
Bashing-omrypervenche: IF booting to ubuntu -> terminal, try terminal command -> sudo update-grub <-. See if that picks up and chainloads Windows for ya.00:12

nahtnamHey! I am trying to connect to my NXT core via bluetooth. I need to set the pin to 1234. When I do, pin options, and click 1234, and then press next, it shows a 6 digit number and then says then connection failed. I NEED 1234 to connect to the device00:37
Bashing-omrypervenche: If that is current, sure looks like a Windows operating system to me. As to why ubuntu's OS-Prober is not picking it up, beyond my experience.00:37
ghandiit tells that grub is not configure, thats ridiculous00:37

nahtnamlawn_gnome: Yeah, I do that. I click 1234, and if I press close, and then click on pin options again, it resets00:42
ghandii hope it works again at least now it installs a few packages after i removed some init.d entries00:43
daftykinsBashing-om: ty00:43
Bashing-omdaftykins: I am in my learning mode .00:43
daftykinsrypervenche: so i see gdisk refers to that disk as having a GPT with protective MBR setup, which means it's some kind of quirky hybrid. i missed the start of your query, but presumably you're just trying to install ubuntu alongside Windows (which version out of interest?) to this disk?00:44
rypervenchedaftykins: And some back story. Friend with a working Windows 8.1 installation. He had first partition, then some unallocated space, and then a second partition that was just for data. I got rid of the second partition, created EFI system partition, swap, and linux partition. Then installed Ubuntu on the system, manually choosing those three partitions and installing the bootloader on sda.00:45
rypervenchedaftykins: gdisk always shows protective MBR on all disks that you have GPT on.00:46
daftykinsrypervenche: hrmm, it looks like it was a real mess already, as i can see old Windows XP folders as well as win7/800:46
rypervenchedaftykins: It apparently wasn't an update either. Straight installation to 8.1.00:47
daftykinsrypervenche: you can see the Windows.Old folders though, heh00:48
rypervencheYeah... :/00:48
daftykinsrypervenche: anyway i missed the actual issue at the moment?00:48
daftykinspresumably you've been pastebin'ing from the ubuntu install?00:48
rypervenchedaftykins: I can't boot back into Windows. update-grub is not giving the chainloaders.00:48
daftykinsah i see00:48
daftykinsit's definitely a new enough system to have an EFI?00:49

rypervenchedaftykins: I suppose I can try to add the manual the grub lines. I'll give that a shot.00:50
skyfallcan anyone please tell me how to solve this issue ?00:50
EriC^^autoexec.bat brings back memories fooling around with the pc's at school00:50
daftykinsrypervenche: actually you said it was your addition, the EFI partition, so i suspect the system is actually installed in BIOS mode, you might need to wipe ubuntu and reinstall it in legacy too (despite the disk appearing GPT)00:51
daftykinsrypervenche: although it looks so messy to me that i'd probably backup the user data and nuke the thing from orbit and start again00:51
daftykinsi bet a lot of disk space is being wasted on those old Windows installations00:51
rypervenchedaftykins: Ok, I'll try a few things and then boot using BIOS mode. I suppose that would let us know if it is installed in BIOS mode or not.00:52
daftykinsrypervenche: *nod* good luck00:53
rypervencheBashing-om: daftykins: Thank you both for the help. I'll let you know if I can get something to work :)00:53
skyfallhello. ? anybody ?00:53
Bashing-omdaftykins: rypervenche For my info, does not Windows expect the EFI partiton to be the 1st partition. and is not GPT sector size 4096 vice 512 (MBR) ??00:54
n0w_Every time I start the system, xfce popups nautilus showing home directory. How can I fix it?00:54
ghandidas upgrade ist eine zangengeburt00:54
n0w_Every time I start the system, xfce popups nautilus showing home directory. How can I fix it?00:56
daftykinsBashing-om: sector size is more of a physical disk thing, it doesn't influence the use of MBR or GPT at all really. an EFI'd Windows install would have the EFI boot partition at the start yeah, so i don't think this was an EFI Windows at all. i think an in-place windows 8 install has stuck to installing to this disk in legacy BIOS mode due probably to seeing an older Windows version on there to begin with (you can see XP folders on the00:56
Bashing-omdaftykins: Thanks for the probable explanation. makes sense now to me. ( I bet no Windows boot code in the EFI partition ) .00:59
rypervenchedaftykins: Hmm, and it wouldn't be possible to have a mix of BIOS and UEFI systems, would it? I just realized the custom grub stuff would be for EFI, which Windows doesn't have.00:59
Ubuntu-niceI can't burn Ubuntu in a CD anymore :<01:00
Ubuntu-niceMore than 1GB size, why is this o.O01:00
daftykinsrypervenche: nah, the user would have to keep using the system's boot menu (if it has one) to select between the installations, if it's even EFI capable01:00
Bashing-omrypervenche: Must be one or the other, else Bios can not hand off to the boot code at a known location.01:00
daftykinsBashing-om: my pleasure :) indeed, it'd have nothing right now01:01
yeatsUbuntu-nice: because CD-ROMs can't hold that much data? ;-)01:01
rypervencheOk, I'll put the system in BIOS mode and reinstall I guess. Thanks again.01:01

antitauHey folks - got a wifi problem I'm hoping someone can help with. I just installed Elementary OS (12.04) on a laptop with a Broadcom 43328 chip. A few other things didn't work so I upped to kernel 3.13 and did a --reinstall of bcmwl-kernel-source to get the wifi driver for the new kernel. Now it works but only finds the 5GHz channel from my dual band router which seems to be very unreliable compared to the 2.4 i'm usually on. Any suggestions? :-)01:25

willpowersI was trying to fix my graphics card issue and so I purged a few video related packages, and now I can't boot into the desktop.01:39
willpowersIt prompted me for my password and I can see the desktop background image, but Unity just doesn't load.01:40
willpowersIt hangs at the background image forever.01:40
willpowersAny ideas how to fix?01:41
willpowersI feel like the graphics card drivers must be semi-installed because it still shows the background image in full resolution on all three of my screens.01:42

Jon31hey guys, i am trying to install vpn on my server. i was recommended to use openvpn, but i don't understand why use openvpn because it requires you to use a client. I remember there was something simpler that allows you to establish a VPN connection without the need of a client. Was it PPTP? I can't remember. Any advise?01:49
daftykinswillpowers: test a guest session would be idea 1, to prove it isn't a user config issue01:49
willpowersdaftykins: I had to install aftermarket ones because I couldn't get my third monitor to work at the time.  I don't think the ones integrated into the kernel could support 3 monitors at the time.01:49

sacarlsondkog: the dhcp method I would guess would meet you ad-hoc method, but you can research others03:07

willpowersscarlson: Well I think I removed them.  Now I just need to get the xorg-intel package back somehow.03:36
sacarlsonwillpowers: what version of ubuntu do you now have installed?03:36
sacarlsonwillpowers: without knowing what you removed it's too much trouble for me to guess what is needed03:37
willpowersIsn't there an apt log where I can see what I purged earlier?03:37
sacarlsonwillpowers: good idea research that03:37
Loshkiwillpowers: check /var/log/dpkg.log, then check to see if you still have a cached copy in /var/cache/apt/archive03:38
willpowersWhat about /var/log/apt/history.log?03:38
mahem1Is there no pepperflash for Saucy 13.10? The PPA doesn't seem to have it for 13.10. This tutorial doesn't show it either. http://askubuntu.com/questions/449103/chromium-34-and-later-cannot-detect-flash-plugin03:39
bubbasauresmahem1, 13.10 is eol03:39
mahem1bubbasaures: Oh, true. Darn, I guess I should have chose an LTS.03:40
bubbasauresmahem1, 14.04 is, back it up and upgrade.03:40
mahem1bubbasaures: Fair enough, thanks.03:41
willpowersscarlson: xserver-xorg-video-intel03:41
willpowersAnd since I purged it looks like all the dependencies of those got wiped too.03:42
=== Joshua^Dunamis is now known as Joshua^Dunamis_i
Bashing-omwillpowers: Here is one thought, NOT supported here ! -> INTEL RELEASES LINUX GRAPHICS DRIVERS INSTALLER , in the process of installing the propprietary driver may find what dependencies are missing: http://www.webupd8.org/2013/03/intel-releases-linux-graphics-drivers.html .03:44
willpowersscarlson: I reinstalled the xserver-xorg-video-intel and it still doesn't load my desktop.03:44
willpowersBashing-om: That's explaining the GUI tool, I only have access to the CLI now that I am locked out of my desktop.03:45
Bashing-omwillpowers: " via command line ("intel-linux-graphics-installer") and use it to upgrade your Intel graphics drivers: " .03:46
Bashing-omwillpowers: Or does that activate a GUI utility ?03:47
willpowersHow do I get that executable?03:47
willpowersI think it activates a GUI03:47
willpowersThat's how I installed the Intel graphics drivers before when I could access my desktop.  My third monitor wouldn't turn on until I installed the latest driver using that.03:47
willpowersNow my XOrg.log file says "Could not load software renderer".03:48
sacarlsonBashing-om: I don't see any package and no wheris return for intel-linux-graphics-installer03:48
willpowersThe thing is, from reading the apt.log file, when I did `apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video-intel, it removed a bunch of dependencies.03:49
willpowersAnd now that I did `apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel`, it installed it, but I didn't get all the dependencies back.03:50
willpowersAnd thus the XOrg.log file is saying "Could not load software renderer" because one of the dependencies is missing.03:50
Bashing-omwillpowers: A command line way ! http://www.webupd8.org/2013/04/how-to-use-intel-linux-graphics-drivers.html .03:50
willpowersHmm that looks old it's for 13.04.03:52
willpowersI see that there's a https://download.01.org/gfx/ubuntu/14.04/main/ too.03:53
Bashing-omwillpowers: To resolve dependencies -> apt-get depends xserver-xorg-video-intel , apt-cacxhe rdepends xserver-xorg-video-intel <- make sure all listed packages are installed (??) .03:53
willpowersHow can I check and see if I already have that intel repository?03:53
willpowersI think I might already have it from previously using the GUI tool.03:53
sacarlsonwillpowers: I note you have been researching this isue now for 2 hours,  it only takes 14 minutes or less to just install a fresh copy of 14.04,  do you have some custome installs on this box?03:54
Bashing-omwillpowers: look in -> cat -n /etc/apt/sources.list , tail -v -n +1 /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* <- for source.03:54
willpowersscarlson: Haha, I might do that if I knew how, and if I also knew that my files and programs would be safe.03:55
breedhi! how you guys doing?03:55
willpowersNo custom installs btw scarlson.03:56
sacarlsonwillpowers: you could just backup /home on a flash if it's not already on it's own partition and start a reinstall03:56
breedanyone can help me?, i cant run ccsm on ubuntu 14.04 lts, tryed few ways and times, installs, reinstalls... thanks!03:56
OERIAS?join #debian03:56
willpowerssacarlson: I'll do that if I can't fix it in the next 30 minutes.03:57
willpowersI don't want to risk any data loss.03:57
sacarlsonwillpowers: in the future if you want to go back to a prevouse point you should setup rsync backup and perform it before any big changes like you made03:58
willpowersI agree.03:59
sacarlsonwillpowers: there is also the new disk partition format that allows freeze points that can be recovered that I"ve never tried03:59
willpowersI heard you should just store /home on a separate partition and then you can easily reinstall Ubuntu.03:59
=== mussolini is now known as SwisherSweets
=== SwisherSweets is now known as Phillies
willpowersOkay well I'm going to try those `depends` commands now. Hopefully that fixes it.03:59
celrocwillpowers: I have /home on its own partition.  Very handy when installing/reinstalling distros :-)04:00
willpowers`apt-get depends` says Invalid operation.04:00
sacarlsonwillpowers: so if you like to do what you just did maybe on your new install you will also want to try btrfs disk format https://help.ubuntu.com/community/btrfs04:00
willpowers`apt-get depends xserver-xorg-video-intel` says Invalid operation, I mean.04:00
breedhi!!! :)) anyone can help me?, i cant run ccsm on ubuntu 14.04 lts, tryed few ways and times, installs, reinstalls... thanks!04:01
willpowerssacarlson: I'm more concerned about just getting this fixed so I can get back to work right now lol.04:01
willpowersIf I can figure out the depends stuff, hopefully I can get those dependencies all back.04:01
willpowerssacarlson: Here you can see the apt.log, and it displays all the dependencies that got removed too. http://i.imgur.com/7LA19NO.jpg04:02
Bashing-omwillpowers: Sorry, tired, the command is apt-cache depends <package-name> and apt-cache rdepends <package-name.04:03
willpowersBashing-om: it listed a bunch of depends on new lines, and then one that says Conflicts.04:04
willpowersConflicts: xserver-xorg-video-intel04:04
Bashing-omwillpowers: Right, those in the 1st section are required to be installed -> dpkg -l <name> <- .04:05
willpowersBashing-om: I have to type that for each one?04:06
Bashing-omwillpowers: Do not know how a package could conflict with it's self, less a different versions of same package .04:07
sacarlsonwillpowers: from that it looks like you pulled one branch that made the entire tree fall down.  I can't tell what's on top the tree to see what would need to be installed first.  I see ubuntu-desktop maybe that will recover the try but I dought it04:07
willpowersBashing-om: Might be something to do with which architecture.04:08
Bashing-omwillpowers: " I have to type that for each one" yep, I know of no short cuts .04:08
willpowersHaha this is funny.04:08
willpowersI guess I just need to reinstall Ubuntu if installing `ubuntu-desktop` doesn't fix this.04:08
willpowersBut I am just worried that backing up /home won't back everything I need up.04:09
sacarlsonwillpowers: my guess is even when you have something that looks like it works you will later find other branches missing that cause other problems04:09
willpowersStuff like server configurations, etc.04:09
Bashing-omwillpowers: manually resolving dependnecies is a real pain .. Imagine what it was like before package management (dpkg) was thought up !04:09
willpowersShoot me.04:10
willpowersI haz my desktop back.04:10
sacarlsonwillpowers: just think how much cooler your system will be with btrfs added to a new install ha ha04:11
Bashing-omwillpowers: ! big step for willpowers , and as sacarlson remarks, what next is broken ?04:11
willpowersSame annoying screen flickering when using certain websites though.04:11
willpowersI wonder if a reinstall might resolve that.04:11
hipitihopI need to run 'sudo modprobe snd-usb-audio' to get my usb headset working, but this does not survive reboot, can someone please help to make this stick04:12
sacarlsonhipitihop: there is a directory in /etc that contains modules you can add at boot, I would have to research the name04:13
sacarlsonhipitihop: /etc/modules  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Loadable_Modules04:15
hipitihopsacarlson, apreciate the pointer, no /etc/modules here but reading your link thanks04:16
sacarlsonhipitihop: then you must not be running ubuntu04:16

Ahmuckhi. i used to use ctl + c for copy and ctl + v for paste from term to desktop apps.  is this functionality gone?04:22
samthewildoneAhmuck, forgetting shift04:23
sacarlsonAhmuck: for me it seems to work for some apps but now all.  but in most it works for me04:23
sacarlsonnow = not04:23
samthewildoneAhmuck, I experienced this problem myself but, for ubuntu I believe you have to include the shift key. Something about bindings.04:23
Ahmuckok, so starting an app in the term i used to be able to terminate it gracefully using clt | or alt |04:24
hipitihopsacarlson, Awesome, worked. Many thanks04:24
Ahmucksame thing, now i'm stopping them with ctl + c.  am i missing something again?04:24
Ahmuckchange is good, but change that breaks long standing functionality is baaaaad.04:25

lizzie_Sound has stopped working on my laptop04:29
lizzie_I notice that alsa library(1.0.25) does not match alsa utilities( version04:29
lizzie_How do I correct this?04:29
sacarlsonlizzie_: for me sound has got more complicated as more devices are sound devices and I need to select what device to play or record from04:30
lizzie_sacarlson, it was working fine a week ago04:31
sacarlsonlizzie_: for me the fix is normaly found in preferences>sound;  I found my skype was fliping my mike to front and I needed rear04:32
OrangestarIs there a better place to ask a Pulseaudio support question or can I do it here?04:32
sacarlsonOrangestar: best to just ask you might get lucky04:33
OrangestarAight, well I can't seem to get pavucontrol or blueman to set my headset's audio profile to hsp/hfp04:34
OrangestarIt always stays at "off" and sometimes throws me an error that it just can't do it.04:34
OrangestarGoogling has been of little use. Most of the replies don't get this far or just say "it's broke, just stop."04:35
lizzie_sacarlson, you're saying that it doesn't matter that library and utilities don't match, then?04:35
OrangestarOh, and doing it from the command line just says "input/output error"04:37

willpowersI want to reinstall Ubuntu but I need to know how to figure out what I need to backup?04:47
willpowersObviously my home folder, but what about other programs or settings?04:47
sacarlsonwillpowers: most important is /home  then depending on what apps you had installed like mysql and others you might need some things in /var04:48
willpowersI have virtual hosts and stuff.04:49
ubuntuaddictedi installed nvidia 343.22 from the nvidia website and when i boot i am presented with a black screen. it's weird cause there's no errors in xorg.0.log nor .xsession-errors04:49

just_jonthanks for the info on the server04:50
just_jonany tricks to getting ubuntu-mate to read DVD movies?04:54
willpowersIf I can just copy the /home directory that should be sufficient.  My projects all have provisioners that configure the vhosts.04:55
Amminadabhello over here04:55
OrangestarIf the programs you use aren't exactly hefty you could probably just redownload those.04:55
sacarlsonjust_jon: from ubuntu there are some packages to add codec  they have the word extra at the end.  maybe dvd has it's own package04:55
Orangestar /home is obviously the big one04:56
just_jonI added libdvdread4 and libdvdnav404:56
just_jonand then ran the script to set up css04:56
sacarlsonjust_jon: if you like mate then you might like Linux mint that has all the codec preinstalled for you including what's needed for dvd04:57
just_jonyeah, idk, I like more vanillia installations04:57

willpowersWow my home dir is 162 gigs.05:16
willpowersI don't know how it got that big.05:16
sacarlsonsabgenton: yes I just read this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mir_%28software%29  but I can't even get my apps to run in unity, it would require me to rewrite and port to it to make it work.  for me it was easier to just move to Mate05:16
Orangestarwillpowers: you can use the disk usage analyzer in ubu to determine what's taking up all that space05:17
sabgentonsonetea i heard xmir can05:17
OrangestarYou can also use GDmap but it displays it's results differently. It's a matter of taste05:18

soneteasudo apt-get install unity-desktop06:45
icecube45So, sonetea06:45
icecube45I'm trying to run the server, right06:45
icecube45There is a commandline option to start it06:45
icecube45that will boot up fine, will require no input on the gui side of things06:46
icecube45but I need to force this to run a window, or at least think it is06:46
icecube45I have no gpu on this thing..06:46

abhishek"sudo apt-get install unity-desktop" is enough to install the whole Unity environment?06:46
soneteaabhishek: i blieve so but let me check06:47
abhishekSonetea: I also intend to install Gnome after that06:47
soneteasudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop06:48

icecube45is there a way for me to run opengl w/o a gpu?06:48

sacarlsonabhishek: you might like Mate desktop better.  I've seen links to install it on ubuntu06:49

soneteasacarlson have you tried the offical ubuntu mate desktop yet>06:51
ZlacerHello all. I have problems installing 14.04.1 along Windoe 8.1. At the moment I receive error message unaligned pointer 0x74ee5818 after I have chosen Install Ubuntu from Live USB. Any ideas how to proceed.06:51
soneteaIt looks interesting06:51
soneteaZlacer: have you tried recreating the usb and trying again?06:51
sacarlsonsonetea: I"m not sure as I run from Linux Mint that has it by default06:51
soneteaor possibly redownloading the iso06:51
sacarlsonsonetea: and love it06:52
soneteasacarlson: It uses compiz right?06:52
soneteaand can into wobbly windows?06:52
icecube45So I can06:52
sacarlsonsonetea: I don't think it uses compiz by default06:52
soneteasacarlson: ah, i thought some versions did. What is its default WM for mint?06:53
Zlacersonetea: That I have done couple of times but to the same USB drive. Maybe I will try with another USB and then download again.06:53
sacarlsonsonetea: I think I even installed compiz and don't notice any change so maybe it also has to be activated06:53
soneteaZlacer: this probably isn't the problem but do you have secureboot?06:53
sacarlsonsonetea: I'm not sure how would I find out?06:54
abhisheksacarlson: just saw the screenshots of Mate, looks interesting, will surely try but 'looks' a bit noisy for me06:54
Zlacersonetea; I have secureboot and to my understanding I have disabled it. Although I cannot confirm that from Windows Powershell (running admin) as the command is not regornized. I will check the command and let you know in a moment06:55
sacarlsonabhishek: noisy as in too many icons?  you can remove and add them06:55
soneteaye mate should be pretty configurable06:55
abhisheksacarlson: flashy would be the word, sorry. do give me the command I will check it out06:56
soneteaah sacarlson it probably uses a fork of metacity06:56
sacarlsonabhishek: the link I did see required like 4 - 5 command lines to install06:56
soneteawhich was gnome 2's window manager06:57
sacarlsonsonetea: I show compiz still installed06:57
soneteasacarlson: do you want to use it?06:57
soneteayou have to do some command to make it run on startup instead of marco(metacity)06:57
sacarlsonsonetea: I also show metacity installed06:57
Zlacersonetea: Secureboot is off. I double checked running msinfo32 in Windows06:58
soneteaZlacer: strange06:58
sacarlsonsonetea: ya I would like to try it some time if I can switch it back easy06:58
soneteahave you tried any different ubuntu versions?06:58
Zlacersonetea: I haven06:58
soneteasacarlson: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MATE#Use_a_different_window_manager_with_MATE06:58
sacarlsonsonetea: ubuntu version on my old system back to like 08 or 0906:59

sacarlsonsonetea: cool I'll check it out06:59

Zlacersonetea: I will do that. Just noticed something strange. Looking from Control Panel is says that I have 32-bit operating system, x64-based processor. Looking from system information (msinfo32 from command line) it says that x86 based-PC.07:04
soneteaZlacer: then try install the 32bit version of ubuntu07:05
soneteathat would explain why you get a pointer error07:05
Zlacersonetea: Will do that.07:08
sacarlsonsonetea: that link provided did look to provide me enuf details as to switch to compiz, or even if compiz is an option as a windows manager07:10
sacarlsondid = didn't07:11
soneteadoes compiz --replace not work?07:11
sacarlsonsonetea: I see this link that showed that command compiz --replace http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1298  also noted it said it could be done from a terminal so maybe that would be the best to try first07:19
sacarlsonsonetea: so to exit my present manager I could ??? then just type compiz --replace on the terminal maybe after I login?07:20
soneteayes that's what you can do07:21
soneteayou can also have that run on startup07:21
sacarlsonsonetea: ya I'll wory about startup if I see it working first07:21
servetHi, by default my mic settings are not good; sounds crackling. I change them to alsa and choose the correct device using gstreamer-properties to get them fixed.  But, applications still don't seem to use those new settings and I still get that crackling sound with cheese and hangouts.

Fudgeanyone familiar with trusty gsettings setting custom-keybinds07:42
sacarlsonservet: you should be able to make changes to sound setting while in the app from preference>sound  but I do find that my skype makes it's own changes at start up that mess up some of my other apps at startup07:42
sacarlsonservet: I later wrote a script for one of my apps that force my sound settings by command line to the way I want when I start it07:43
nusri am either unable to physically hear digital sounds (only analog) or i messed up my drivers by bleachbit.....07:44
sacarlsonservet: by adding a line like this pactl set-sink-volume 1 40% ;  not sure if that helps you07:44
servetsacarlson: Yes, but only a few apps allow this. cheese and google hangouts don't have that preference-sound menu...  Does that line set the sound volume?07:47
sacarlsonservet: yes I that line sets the volume input that I use.  but you can control any part of pulseaudio from the command line depending on what you need07:48
ubuntunewbieHi! I have a problem in my newly installed ubuntu 14.04 LTS box. I am unable to access certain sites like edx.org . I am able to do the same in windows07:50
sacarlsonservet: sound preferences can run outside of the app your controling sound for07:51
ubuntunewbieCould you please help?07:51
servetsacarlson: pulseaudio doesn't work well, it is crackling. That's why I need every app, at least hangouts, to use alsa with the correct device settings (ALC660-VD analog) ( that is the settings I use with gstreamer-preperties)07:52
servetsacarlson: anyother settings with pulse audio or o others don't work07:53
sacarlsonservet: oh ic so you bypass pulseaudio, then my method won't work in that envirnment07:53
sacarlsonservet: but that might be due to you having volume up listening on some other input or 1000+ other reasons in pulseaudio07:54
sacarlsonservet: I also bypass pulseaudo when I play with jackd07:55

servetsacarlson: is there a central controller for audio settings to set the defaults? or every app is independent?08:03

servetsacarlson: aren't there terminal commands for alsa like there are for pulse audio?08:09
sacarlsonservet: yes there probly is I just never needed them so didn't research it08:11

LemonSqueezeI have just installed ubuntu, not familiar, but did a clean install over windows. I have a nVidia graphics card and had installed steam, but when playing a a game I found that it could only play smoothly on really low quality17:32

daftykinswhat card?17:33
LemonSqueezenvidia geforce 560M17:33
LemonSqueezei looked around17:33
daftykinsoh laptop then :(17:33
daftykinsyeah look into nvidia-prime via the additional drivers menu17:33

daftykinssounds like an nvidia optimus setup17:33
LemonSqueezebut I read online (reddit) that a guy with my exact graphics card is running games on ubuntu perfectly17:34
LemonSqueezei did some looking around17:34
daftykinsyeah, probably with drivers installed17:34
LemonSqueezeand came across this thing called bumblebee17:34
daftykinsLemonSqueeze: yes, looking around 3x now.17:34

daftykinsJQ: is your monitor connected to it? can you see a picture?17:51
daftykinsLemonSqueeze: ok please run "lspci | pastebinit"17:51
ultrixxJQ, and no it doesn't have 256mb built in. it uses 256 mb of your ram for graphics17:52
JQmeans when i run a game..how can i be sure thats the graphics memory is being used17:52
daftykinsbecause it works17:53
lyntoogrep -i --color memory /var/log/Xorg.0.log17:53
AziroshinJQ: A "real world" test could be to run a game where you know that a certain setting (say, textures) is supposed to use a certain amount of video memory. Starcraft II would prove handy in that regard, as you can choose a setting that is too high. If it is, the textures on the map will have black stripes.17:54
JQultrixx:really thats the concept of integrated graphics17:54
ultrixxJQ, yes17:55
JQAziroshin: i m new to xubuntu.Is there a MAME versin for ubuntu17:56
AziroshinJQ: are you asking because you feel a game you're running isn't using all the resources available? In case it's not a native game, but you are running it through wine, there is a registry key called "VideoMemorySize (source: http://wiki.winehq.org/UsefulRegistryKeys).17:56
AlexPortableSo anyone can help me out?17:56

Bitwise_Hello. I just installed Ubuntu server 14.04 on VMWare with Windows 7 as the host.

jhutchins_wkFoxhoundz: xubuntu is just ubuntu with xfce, you can install as many different desktop environments as you want.18:39

DreamPCsHey guys, quick question. If I'm sharing a printer over SMB (Ubuntu host) do I need a CUPS driver to share to a Windows client or can I have the real drivers?19:18

Valduarethese drives are getting too big19:19
Valduarecode needs to get smaller and smarter lol19:19
JokesOnYou77Hi all19:19
daftykinsDreamPCs: you only share the driver from the host if you want it to be auto, you can just install it manually on the Windows end19:19
grubissuejhutchins_wk: partition table gpt what dos that mean? strange i'm having trouble mounting the right partition19:19
Wordsmani believe that any windows box that adds the printer will search locally for a windowes driver so u dont need cupts19:19

jhutchins_wkWordsman: Use the command line.  Running file managers as root is very dangerous.19:19
DreamPCsdaftykins Ok but do I need a special CUPS driver or can I use the regular hardware driver that came with the printer19:20

NoobsFlyVFRHello, I installed an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Server on a headless server with LUKS-Encrypted LVM, but every time it starts up, it asks for the passphrase. Is there any way to automatically decrypt it on boot?22:07

blaaaNoobsFlyVFR:  It is not easy if you want the encryption to make sense22:09
BlasterIs it because 256mb of ram is not enough?22:09
EriC^^CheckDavid: unmount the usb ( sudo umount /dev/sdx )22:09

=== Red_M is now known as Guest75466
EriC^^CheckDavid: then dd if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdx bs=1M22:10
bekksBlaster: Use the nomodeset kernel option for booting. And 256M is far too less for a reasonable good Ubuntu experience, when using a desktop.22:10
NoobsFlyVFRI've seen articles on how to get it to work by invoking ssh in init.d but I want it to boot without having to SSH to it.22:10
EriC^^CheckDavid: make sure you have the usb's /dev/sdx22:10
bekksNoobsFlyVFR: Automatically decroyting it would make no sense, and would make the encryption useless.22:10
Ben64NoobsFlyVFR: if you want it to decrypt automatically, then what is the point of having it encrypted at all22:10
Blasterbekks, I only want a server.  I guess I need to figure out how to install it using CLI.22:10
blaaaNoobsFlyVFR: it is possible, but you will need to store the key in some way accessible to the server22:10
k1lCheckDavid: sorry for the confusion. i thought for a  debian user, dd was a known program.22:10
bekksBlaster: Just use the server iso.22:10
EriC^^CheckDavid: as a mistake in the /dev/sdx could destroy the disk22:11
NoobsFlyVFRWell, that makes fair sense.22:11
blaaaNoobsFlyVFR: if the key is accessible to the server, it is difficult to have it not accessible to someone with access to the server22:11
NoobsFlyVFRBut can I invoke OpenSSH daemon at startup?22:11
NoobsFlyVFRSo I could enter the passphrase from SSH?22:11
blaaaNoobsFlyVFR: you could have the volume mounted after a system with sshd is running22:12
Ben64NoobsFlyVFR: are you sure you need encryption? it just makes everything more difficult22:13
NoobsFlyVFRI am certain I do not need encryption, although the problem remains, it used to be the HDD from a desktop, which I moved to a headless server.22:13
skinuxSomehow, Weather Indicator for KDE is popping up in Ubuntu default DE?22:14
CheckDavidk1l: the thing is that I am an odd guy. I am a non geek using Linux.22:14

CheckDavidEriC^^: I am going the unetbootin route I guess22:14
Ben64NoobsFlyVFR: so reinstall without encryption22:14
EriC^^CheckDavid: sounds good22:14
blaaaNoobsFlyVFR: Ben64 has a good suggestion I'd say22:14
NoobsFlyVFRReinstalling seems like a lot of work. Although it might be the only way I have left, now. I've checked the article http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/5017/ssh-to-decrypt-encrypted-lvm-during-headless-server-boot which seems relevant.22:15
NoobsFlyVFRBut it explains the procedure for dropbear.22:15
NoobsFlyVFRIf I install dropbear if I already have OpenSSHd running, does it cause a problem?22:15
blaaaNoobsFlyVFR: you could just transfer the contents of the (decrypted) encrypted volume to a new unencrypted volume22:15
NoobsFlyVFRTrue that, blaaa.22:15
k1lCheckDavid: i doesnt really fit into the nerd picture myself, but its a good sign that linux works for regular users nowadays :)22:16

Sunstreamdo not forget for those who have a "daylight savings time" in your area tonight (for the US at least except Arizona) you need to set the clocks back an hour at 2AM23:02
EriC^^puke: i don't follow23:02
EriC^^puke: if it's in /usr/share/applications , you can type it's name in the dash and it should show up23:02
pukeEriC^^: if there's a .desktop file in /usr/share/applications/, doesn't it have to have an icon in the launcher?23:03
daftykinsSunstream: that was last night. it happens sunday AM23:03
pukeEriC^^: i guess dash is the panel that opens when i press the super key.23:04
EriC^^puke: yes23:04
pukeEriC^^: i'm not talking about that. i'm talking about the panel on the left.23:04
EriC^^puke: ok, the launcher23:04
EriC^^if there's a desktop file in /usr/share/applications23:04
pukeyou know, there's trash there. there's amazon thingy when you make a fresh install.23:04

SunstreamThats right23:05
trismpuke: the icons in the launcher are in: gsettings get com.canonical.Unity.Launcher favorites23:05
EriC^^what exactly are you trying to achieve23:05

EriC^^puke: you mean it doesn't have an icon?23:06
SunstreamReset  clock23:06

iseneSamsung laptop (NP900X, series 9) - running "samsung-tools -c silent" (to turn off the incessant fan) reveals "CPU fan control is not available" (I did get fan control on my old, identical machine that was upgradet from 12.10/13.04/13.10/14.04, but with my new laptop and a clean 14.04 install, I cannot control the fan). I have googled and googled and yet some and keep running into a brick wall here. Anyone with a bit more brain juice than me 23:06
EriC^^puke: open the dash, and type the name of the program, and then drag and drop it into the launcher, it'll appear there23:07
puketrism EriC^^ i'm trying to put an icon to launcher. i have to have a .desktop file for that, but it already is a .desktop file23:07
pukeEriC^^: how can i do that in the console?23:07
SunstreamI forogt that was last night okay silly me23:07
pukeEriC^^: it happens when I drag and drop. but how can i do it in command line?23:08
trismpuke: just add it to the list in the gsettings key I just listed23:08
puketrism: thank you very much23:08
pukeEriC^^: thank you very much23:08

willpowersI created a guest VM using libvirt (quemu+kvm) and I can't figure out how to connect to it via SSH.23:12
willpowersI think I am using bridged networking.23:12
willpowersvirsh -c qemu+ssh://demo@localhost/system says connection refused on port 22.23:12
reisiowillpowers: same way you connect to any install via ssh23:12
willpowersI installed OpenSSH on the guest.23:13
iseneTrying to install an earlier package (easy-slow-down-manager from http://code.google.com/p/easy-slow-down-manager/downloads/detail?name=easy-slow-down-manager-dkms_0.15_all.deb&can=2&q=), I needed first to install dkms and got this; "Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.13.0-37-generic (x86_64)" and the same when I then installed the easy-slow-down-manager package. Is there a known issue with dkms?23:13
reisiowillpowers: that's a start23:13

willpowersreisio, how can I figure out the issue?23:14
reisiowillpowers: what issue?23:14
willpowersWhy I am unable to connect to the guest via SSH.23:14
willpowersI can connect using VNC.23:14

jribkevin: also, pastebin output of "apt-cache policy gnome-session-common"23:16
kevinjrib: uhhmm i think i was going from saucy to trusty. here's the output: http://pastebin.com/EdLr9H1e23:17
jribkevin: I assume these gnome-session- packages came from unofficial repos?23:22
kevinjrib: i cannot recall, but i guess so...?23:22
jribkevin: this is what is causing your issue.  Saucy had version 1 (simplifying to integers), your unofficial repo had version 3.  And now in 14.04 only version 2 is available.  so apt sees that you have the later version and won't install the earlier stuff23:23
jribkevin: you can either add the unofficial repo back assuming they have packages for trusty or remove/downgrade all packages it provided and finish upgrading23:24
kevinjrib: oh i see. thank for breaking it down for me. after i take one of those resolution methods, how do i continue the upgrade? do-release-upgrade says there's no upgrad, and "lsb_release -a" already says i'm at trusty23:26
jribkevin: start with "dpkg --configure -a" to configure any packages left to configure and then just do a normal "apt-get dist-upgrade".  But pay very close attention to output before agreeing since sometimes you might end up with apt wanting to just remove half of your system do to deps issues23:27

willpowersWhat's the proper networking type for a libvirt VM so you can access it via SSH from the host?23:27
kevinjrib: alright, thanks for the help.23:29
reisiowillpowers: should work as long as the ip isn't the same as the host's23:30
reisioI'd imagine nat23:30
reisioask #kvm23:30
Loshkiwillpowers: Dunno what libvirt is, but for vmware/virtualbox I usually use bridged networking. That way, the VM instance looks just like another IP host sitting on the same network segment.23:40
willpowersLoshki, how do you find out the IP of the guest VM when using bridged networking?23:41

dourmopour les installations23:43
Loshkiwillpowers: that's up to the guest. But generally, the same way it would if it were running native. Either you tell it, or it asks DHCP...23:44
Loshkizut alors!23:45
willpowersLoshki, so if I do ifconfig on the guest, that would print the IP I would SSH to from the host?23:45
Loshkiwillpowers: yep, just like if it were running physically on your iron. Note the host and the guest are on the same network but have different IP addresses, just as would 'real' machines sitting on your network.23:48
