tewardw00tburger: you need to specify the old-releases repository to upgrade to 13.10 and then from 13.10 to 14.04, then from 14.04 to 14.10.  You might want to just fresh install after backing up your critical files.00:01
w00tburgersure, one sec00:01
tewardw00tburger: as you upgrade from release to release to release, the chance of everything breaking increases more and more - from 13.04 to 14.10, I'd just clean install...00:02

huntmguy: you think thats the only reason?02:34
huntmguy: no 'aptitude is great'02:34
mguyhunt: what do you dislike so much about apt02:35
hunthow does the shell know how to autocomplete for specific options for specific commands02:35
huntmguy: i dont dislike apt per say but compared to pacman its a lot less enjoyable to use02:35
huntmguy: pacman seems a hell of a lot simpler to use, and more powerful02:36
huntmguy: although i doubt its actually more powerful02:36
huntmguy: also apt overwhelms you with nitty gritties of the installation which is some-what annoying, pacman presents everything in a very simple and organized fashion02:36
huntmguy: and also i understand how pacman works from using it whereas apt is a little bit more confusing02:37
huntmguy: all of these things are minor but all togetgher they make apt a lot less desirable'02:37
huntmguy: i would reccomend giving the arch live disk a try just to experience pacman , because i think its really a great thing02:38
huntmguy: and if ubuntu adopted it that would ubuntu ultra-sexy to me02:38
mguyI wouldn't hold your breath02:38

huntim getting kernel panics, can someone help me diagnose them please03:11
arun_please help me configure plesk with centova cast03:11
huntim assuming its a cpu issue but i cant figureout how to confirm it, since there doesnt appear to be a temperature problem and it passes memtest03:11
NaruniDreewAlex, no error, just the result of sudo kvm-ok (under the xen hypervisor kernel) isINFO: Your CPU does not support KVM extensions03:12
tomboy64i'm a little bit despairing. i added a custom ppa to /etc/apt/sources.list (deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/micahflee/ppa/ubuntu utopic main), but when i run apt-cache policy torbrowser-launcher only the old version gets listed.03:13
owen1i want to update the bios. is that risky?03:14
nopfhunt: memtest doesn't use all cpu thermal power. are you getting panic when the system is mostly idle also? or only when working with files and windows? or while some devices are active?03:15
nmz787owen1: it can be if the update program doesn't check the CRC checksum of the file. or if your computer has a bad power connection and is likely to get turned off midway through the update03:16
huntnopf: its generally during medium usage particularly when a lot of ram would be used (youtube videos and games). it just happenned while installing steam for some reason03:16
nopfhunt: when i last suspected thermal problems, i used a very powerful external fan (server rack top) to cool the cpu. panics didn't happen then any more, so i knew it was that03:16
owen1nmz787: other than plugging the power cable, is there anything i should do?03:17
huntnopf: i may have improperly applied paste to my cpu fan but is there any way to confirm that these are thermal problems before i go rutting around in my box? it will be no easy task because its a very compact box03:17
arun_please help me configure plesk with centova cast03:17
nopfhunt: according to your story i'd suspect the cpu, yes. but if you can't supply extra cooling, you cannot be sure03:17
huntnopf: theres no room in my box to even add additional fans, its a node 30403:18
huntnopf: would checking the temperatures as the panic approaches not work?03:18
nopfhunt: if it's unspecific with different usage patterns, this even more points to the hardware03:18
huntnopf: it consistantly happens with games03:19
huntnopf: but its unclear what the pattern is otherwise03:19
Ben64tomboy64: wrong ppa, check the site and use the command(s) listed there to add the ppa, don't do it manually03:19
huntnopf: it doesnt happen with wesnoth03:19
nopfhunt: yes, do that too, though a cpu might heat up in different places than the temp sensors03:19
huntnopf: REALLY??? oh my thats got to be the issue because i suspect that i dont have the cpu entirely covered03:20
unopasteeasybaby you have been muted for 60 seconds as it looks like you are pasting lots of lines into the channel, please use http://paste.ubuntu.com and paste just the URL of your data here when you are unmuted03:20
huntnopf: shouldnt a stress test of some sort determine whether or not this was the case?03:20
nopfhunt: if you don't suspect anything else (like the harddrive or gpu), the cpu is the most probably cause03:20
huntnopf: i have no dedicated gpu, and i dont really suspect the hard drive03:20
Bill_Comptonsystem lags when accessing dash. ubuntu 14.04 - advice?03:21
nopfhunt: it seems you are already running a stress test 'with games'03:21
nopfhunt: and if the gpu is in the cpu, it's suspect even more03:21
huntnopf: sure but that may indicate different issues03:21
huntnopf: ok i suppose ill reapply my thermal paste and see if things are fixed03:21
nopfhunt: in dozens of years, the only things i had ever such problems with were 1 cpu temp and 2 bad ram03:22
nopfhunt: everything else (hd, gpu, bad connectors on pci) showed much more specific symptoms03:22
huntnopf: lets hope thats what it is, this has been bugging me for weeks03:23
nopfhunt: else the only way to be sure would be as i said additional cooling from a powerful and loud fan through the whole case03:25

ubottuveg: lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.05:02

BlasterI formatted it FAT 16 with boot flag on using gparted.07:17
Ben64Blaster: neither, cause that won't work. join ##windows for help making a usb bootable windows iso07:17

tqrekfi heard centos is faster07:18
Ben64ok, use whatever you like07:18
BlasterBen64, I understand but I think using dd with fat16 and boot flag is going to work and I want to test it.  They know nothing about dd.  Can you just answer my other question?  /dev/sdc or /dev/sdc1?  Theoretically would I “burn it” to the FAT16 partition or not?07:19
OerHeksBlaster, you have been told dd does not work, why do you insist on it?07:19
BlasterBecause I want to try to make it work.  No one has been clear on why it doesn't.07:19

agent_whiteThough it says "automatic partition sizing: not recommended) I would disagree, and say that you should do this until you know more about partitioning to your needs.08:06
agent_whiteenergizer: `^08:07
agent_whiteUnless you choose partition sizes SMALLER than the one auto-matically selected, you should be fine.08:07
agent_whiteenergizer: Though if you're feeling adventurous, do the manual partitioning. Again -- last long as you're not attempting to re-size the windows partitions, you should be fine choosing your own linux partion sizes.08:09

kerneloopzhey guys. How do I install a Nvidia .run driver? Is the recommended way to boot into recovery mode, and from the recovery menu drop into the command line, and install the driver that way?08:19
catalogueis it a slow process? it takes forever08:19
cataloguei'm running this basically: grep "hi" #ubuntu08:20
agent_white_generally_, use `find` for files/directorie names, and `grep` for the content inside them.08:20
agent_whitecatalogue: What exactly are you wanting to search for?08:20
murbardHow can I rsync ubuntu?08:20
cataloguefor a word inside the log08:20
OerHekskerneloopz, recommended way is the drivers ubuntu provides with the additional driver tool08:21
murbarder, how can I rsync the latest 14.10 ubuntu image?08:21
murbardAre there any rsync servers, instead of httpd08:21
murbardor ftpd08:21
kerneloopzyes OerHeks, but the driver tool doesn't offer 343.22, which I need for my 97008:21
bekkskerneloopz: you dont do that because it will break your system whenever your kernel gets updated.08:22
kerneloopzand xorg-edgers for some reason doesn't include OpenCL in their package08:22
bekkskerneloopz: Whats the actual problem you are facing with the nvidia drivers from the Ubuntu repos?08:22
kerneloopzyes, I realize that08:22
agent_whitecatalogue: then you are using it correctly with grep. I wouldn't _think_ it would be slow unless "#ubuntu.log" is of a VERY large size.08:22
kerneloopzthe driver is too old and doesn't recognize my 97008:22
bekkskerneloopz: Which driver version do you use?08:23
kerneloopzand when I install the driver from xorg-edgers, my 970 is recognized by I don't have OpenCL08:23
agent_whitemurbard: rsync? -- Do you mean that you want to update ubuntu?08:23
kerneloopzI'm on 343.22 at the moment in Linux Mint 17 (Ubuntu 14.04)08:23
catalogueagent_white, it's another log, and it's ~14,000 lines. is that a lot?08:23
kerneloopzI managed to install the .run file, but in doing so I messed up X, and I think that's because my method isn't the proper way08:24
bekkskerneloopz: So ask the min support. This is Ubuntu support.08:24
kerneloopzhence why I'm asking how to install a .run file08:24
kerneloopzI realize that08:24
kerneloopzbut in this regard Mint and Ubuntu are basically the same here08:24
bekkskerneloopz: If you realize that, take your support issue to the linux mint support please.08:24
bekks!mint | kerneloopz08:24
ubottukerneloopz: Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. Please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org08:24
murbardagent_white: I mostly downloaded the file with httpd, but the download was interrputed. My interenet is slow enough that I don't want to start it over. I dislike torrents also. so I was hoping to just rsync continue the download.08:24
agent_whitecatalogue: `ls -l path/to/log/file.txt --block-size=M` will tell you the size in megabytes08:25
kerneloopzsee, I'll bet I could have just not mentioned that I was on Mint, and any help here would have applied08:25
agent_whitemurbard: "the file" is what file?08:25
agent_whitemurbard: What file are you attempting to download, from where, and how?08:25
sabunkerneloopz: come back with another nick with same question, but do not mention linux mint. you will get help08:25
bekkskerneloopz: Nonetheless you mentioned it, and you are on Mint. So please keep this channel open for the Ubuntu support now.08:25
kerneloopzall right08:26
catalogueagent_white, i guess it's 1.2 megs. that's pretty big, right?08:26
murbardagent_white: ubuntu-14.04.1-dekstop-amd64.iso08:26
agent_whitecatalogue: "08:26
agent_whitecatalogue: Not really.. it should pretty much give you the response immediately.08:26
kerneloopzok, so if I installed Ubuntu 14.04 and wanted to install the Nvidia .run file, how would I do that?08:26
bekkscatalogue: 1.2m isnt large for grep.08:26
bekkskerneloopz: You dont have Ubuntu.08:26
bekkskerneloopz: You are on mint. Seek their support. Thank you.08:27
catalogueagent_white, bekks, yeah i thought it should be much faster. hm. just ran one maybe 30 seconds ago and let it keep going to see how long it would go08:27
cataloguejust a blinking cursor08:28
agent_whitemurbard: `rsync -aP /path/to/orgi/file /new/file/path`08:28
agent_whitecatalogue: Copy paste your EXACT command08:28
agent_whiteInto here08:29
cataloguegrep "hi" #rubyonrails.log08:29
cataloguehm, it works on files that don't have the #08:29
agent_whitecatalogue: What IRC client? Full path of the log file?08:29
bekkscatalogue: grep hi \#rubyonrails.log08:29
bekksYou have to escape the # char.08:29
cataloguebekks, aha! thank you!08:30
cataloguewhat was happening there?08:30
agent_whitemurbard: You could also add an alias to rsync to each and every time you call it, it will use --partial(-P). Look up ".bashrc" and "adding alias to bashrc"08:30
catalogueeh it's not important. thanks for the help guys.08:31
agent_whitecatalogue: grep uses "basic regular expressions". In that standard, "#" is a special char. Needs to be escaped to be searched on :)08:32

basil1xIt also requires some creative futzing to get working.  It wants ffmpeg, which has apparently gone.10:24
k1l_basil1x: programs demanding ffmpeg cant b in the repos since ffmpeg is not in the repos.10:28
basil1xI was thinking it could be altered to use whatever replaced ffmpeg?10:28
Flannelbasil1x: libav is.  audio-convert-mod isn't in the repos because it seems that no one has packaged it.10:28
k1l_basil1x: libav-tools is in the repos. its one of the forks from the ffmpeg drama10:29
JetForMeI'm having a heck of a time getting my new ubuntu install to link a very simple C/C++ program.10:29
basil1xPity they couldn't do something about the dreadful name at the same time.10:29
FlannelJetForMe: have you installed 'build-essential'?10:30
bekksJetForMe: why?10:30
JetForMehere's my example: http://pastebin.com/ChQcyLW110:30
JetForMeI installed with sudo apt-get install g++10:30
bekksJetForMe: And how do you try to link it?10:30
JetForMeThe command line is in the comments at the top10:31
bekksAnd whats the error message?10:31
JetForMeBy the way, I was able to build mpg123 from source without issue, and it makes teh same call.10:31
JetForMeah, stand by, sorry10:31
JetForMeI updated the paste with the error10:32
JetForMe(at the bottom)10:32
geirhathat means there's a new url10:32
JetForMeNope, same URL ;-)10:32
JetForMeI also tried this with plain C code (main.c, no C++ syntax), same result10:33
JetForMelet me try installing build-essentials, although I seem to have a working set of tools10:33
bekksJetForMe: Use: #include <alsa/control.h>10:34
bekksbuild-essentials will not magically fix your code :)10:34
JetForMeno change, bekks10:34
JetForMe(with alsa/control10:34
nopfJetForMe: put the -l option after the .cpp file. this is how linking works iirc10:35
JetForMeWow, that's it10:35
JetForMeI've never run into that before10:35
nopfJetForMe: the -l is used to resolve undefined names. at that point of the command line (from left to right) there are no undefined names10:36
JetForMeI usually write all my options first, including the -o, and put the source file name(s) at the end. Oh, but that's when I'm using a makefile with a separate link step...10:36
geirhaGNU likes to break with convention :)10:36
nopfJetForMe: in this sens -l is not an option but another file specification10:36
nopfgeirha: no, this is traditional C10:36
JetForMeI should say, I *usually* use Xcode on iOS or OS X...10:36
nopfJetForMe: btw this is not ubuntu specific. forget the solution and ask again in ##programming :)10:37
JetForMeyeah, I get you, it's just Xcode hides all that10:37
Parameziusagent_white, it doesn't work. it keeps telling that there are unmet dependencies10:38
JetForMeFor that matter, I usually have makefiles, wherein this doesn't appear10:38
JetForMeThank you nopf, and the rest, for all your help!10:38
Parameziuscould it be due to a repository problem?10:38
TommmyHi, can anyone tell me the correct way to install and use a nvidia driver? :S10:40
blablaTommmy: apt-get install nvidia-drivers ?10:41
flux242Everytime I install ubuntu base system on a machine or in a virtual environment I open .bashrc and uncomment force_color_prompt. It was like that since many years. Why isn't it fixed already?10:41
Tommmyi installed nvidia-current, and nvidia-prime to switch betwen intel and nvidia but after that my ubuntu was freezing every 5 minutes10:42
Tommmyit was working fine but it was freezing, even with out playing a game10:42
blablaTommmy: maybe wrong driver?10:42
Tommmyi could play games10:43
Tommmyis nvidia-current fine for Nvidia GeForce GT 525M?10:45
flux242the workaround would be to copy part of the .bashrc into my .bash_aliases bun I really don't want to have this code there10:45
blablaTommmy: should be, any error logs?10:45
k1l_Tommmy: which ubuntu?10:46
Tommmywell i got rid of it so i reinstaled ubuntu10:46
k1l_Tommmy: remove the nvidia-current and install the nvidia-33110:46

Tommmyshould i try with nvidia-331-updates10:48
geirhaflux242: The idea is that the terminal should tell bash whether it can do colors or not, but gnome-terminal, at least, has no such ability at all. It sets TERM=xterm no matter what10:48
flux242geirha: which leads to what conclusion?10:49
k1l_Tommmy: i dont know. i dont have your setup. if nvidia-current works than ok10:50
geirhaflux242: That it's a mess10:50
sacarlsonTommmy: looks like 331.49 is best they got http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/7322110:50
flux242geirha: exactly, what's what I'm talking about10:50
dopiehey all10:51
dopieim trying to get the solarized theme for my bash10:51
dopiebut its not installing10:51
Tommmyhmmmm.. what happen if i have 2 nvidia drivers?10:51
Tommmyor more10:51
k1l_Tommmy: that results in issues10:51
geirhaflux242: I just replace it with my own generic .bashrc, but that's unfortunately not enough either, because bash is specifically patched to also read /etc/bash.bashrc, and you can't avoid that10:51
k1l_Tommmy: that is why i said remove the one and then install the next one10:51
k1l_dopie: more details, more errormassages. what ubuntu?10:52
Tommmyso is it a good idea to do apt-get purge nvidia*10:52
flux242geirha: it is possible to set a custom term variable with xfce4-terminal but if I write xterm-color then the terminal stops workgin telling me that /etc/termcap is missing10:52
Tommmybefore installing the nvidia-33110:53
k1l_Tommmy: yes. is suggest to make a reboot then. then install the new one, reboot again10:53
k1l_*i suggest10:53
Tommmythat could be the mistake10:53
geirhatermcap? surely you have terminfo installed10:54
Tommmybecause i have tried 5 times, using diferent ways, diferent packages,and had to reinstall 5 times10:54
Tommmyi will try that10:54
Tommmythank you so much!10:54
flux242geirha: I usually never change the default .bashrc beside that damn color variable. I do everything in my own .bash_aliases.10:54
mehdip2007hey guys i install xiki  when i input it in my terminal now i cant run my terminal what should i do?10:55
flux242geirha: no I don't think that i have terminfo installed. It could be a part of ncurses which is not installed. No need10:57
Ben64mehdip2007: not seeing any package named xiki10:57
flux242geirha: but anyway, if I only have a basis then getty sets term variable to linux and again color prompt is not activated by default10:59

mehdip2007https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/xiki/xiki-the-command-revolution       this is what i try yo use11:00
Ben64mehdip2007: only software in the ubuntu repositories are supported, contact whoever makes that11:00
geirhaflux242: Right, so it's probably about time that restriction gets lifted, and colors are enabled by default. I don't even know if there's any terminal emulators that don's support colors in ubuntu's repositories11:00
mehdip2007well the point is u can see pictures and videos in ur terminal11:01
mehdip2007Ben64, how can i restore my terminal ? this is the error i get http://paste.ubuntu.com/9170045/11:03
Ben64mehdip2007: see, thats why non standard software isn't supported. theres no way anyone here could know what you did to get it to that state. you'll have to figure that out yourself11:04
solarshi there, is there a tool that I could use temporarily for uptime logging? need to check the internet connection on a machine here to see if it is stable over a day11:05
mehdip2007Ben64, well in my terminal preferences TITLE and command tab in custom command i add /usr/bin/xiki and couldnt run it anyomre :(11:06

mpathyI have a problem with encodings.. I unpacked a tar.xz (from a BSD system apparently) to my Ubuntu here.. Some special characters in the file names were not correct (the äöüß of the german file names for example) and I want to correct them. Is there a way to do this? I am think of a program who does that automatically, which would be the easiest, or instead something which has the ability to "search&replace" on file names recursively in a l12:06
mpathyot of folders..12:06
mpathyIf there is nothing like that, I got a text file with md5sums and the correct filenames, which I could use to replace the file names in the unpacked folder here..12:07
dorkusmaximusis ubuntu the best linux distribution12:07
bekksdorkusmaximus: There is no "best" in terms of software. It is all up to you and your choice.12:07
dorkusmaximusaw c'mon...just say "ubuntu is def the best"12:08
k1l_dorkusmaximus: since you ask in a ubuntu channel: yes it is12:08
mpathyyou asking this in the Ubuntu channel? you might get a bit of a biased answer on that.. try some for yourself. you can use something like VirtualBox to install different systems on your current system12:08
dorkusmaximusawesome i knew it12:08
bekksdorkusmaximus: If you knew it - why do you ask?12:08
EriC^^mpathy: rename maybe12:09
dorkusmaximusyeah, in the last day ive installed debian, slackware, fedora, and ubuntu. ubuntu is the only one that didnt have a lot of problems.12:09
mpathyEriC^^: Yes, but the question is, how I can do it? It would even be okay to have some kind of manual filename search and replace recursively12:10
EriC^^mpathy: the command rename12:10
EriC^^mpathy: man rename, it's a perl script that uses sed syntax12:10
nopfmpathy: or learn emacs, you can use text replace on directory view buffers12:11
EriC^^don't know if it'srecursive though12:11
EriC^^mpathy: if it's not recursive you can use the find command with -exec12:12
mpathybut how can I make a regexp for such weird characters?12:12
mpathyI am able to use find -exec, I know how to do.. but I struggle on how I can get a selection fitting these weird characters.. which are their right representation?12:14
mpathyFor example it looks like LoÌ?we12:15
mpathyand should be Löwe12:15
EriC^^if you search for LoÌ?we does it find it?12:15
mpathybut the file name looks different in Terminal and in Nautilus. Which is the right representation for the use in a script or command line?12:16
EriC^^try to use what is in the terminal with find and see if it returns anything12:16
mpathyno it doesnt.. ls displays it as LoÌ?we.. find does it display as Löwe12:17

Swingline711pilikeits, isn't there a media tab in firefox' options?12:31

mpathyfaust: I dont know but I send the person my locale output and he says its the same, all de and UTF-812:32
k1l_avoider: so maybe its the numix theme ruining it? can you choose the default theme and ions?12:32
mpathyfaust: So if he is right, it would be LC_CTYPE="de_DE.UTF-8"12:33
pilikeitsSwingline711, what you now try to say?12:33
Swingline711change the handler settings in the media section of firefox' options.12:33
mpathyfaust: but it is a BSD system he has. but shouldnt be a problem. I even used bsdtar to unpack instead of gnutar12:33
Swingline711to transmission perhaps12:33
pilikeitsSwingline711, there is that application tab...where is the list...but there isn't torrent12:33
avoideri need to reboot12:34
faustmpathy: I think that you may have different "chararcter set" set on your (his?) systems, also if he manages to remnames the files the problem will return, maybe it will be better if he set UTF-8 on both machine12:35

pilikeitsSwingline711, hmm....that magnet just opens transmission but then ask the source file......i just want that when i press that torrent it will open it with transmission12:36
k1l_m1dnight_: better ask in #ubuntu-offtopic since that is not a technical issue :)12:37

pilikeitsSwingline711, i need to add torrent somehow to that application list...hmmmm12:38
xfcewhats a good music player for ubuntu unity12:39
faustmpathy: howevere to answer your original question, maybe, the best way to manage the problem is by using a scripting language with good unicode support (which is not the case with bash) like python, ruby etc12:40
agent_whitexfce: I like basic players. For a GUI - "deadbeef", and for a console "cmus".12:40

pilikeitsSwingline711, ok hmm...i have never use that magnetlink thingy. so now i think its downloading it. thank you. 100% i always use "download torrent" button12:45
Swingline711pilikeits, haha, magnet thingy isn't something; it's just like data embedded into the uri itself12:50
mpathyfaust: I made some tests and the checksums of the files are identical. That means I have now a file with correct filename and checksum who fits12:50
Swingline711a hash and then optionally a decription and additional trackers12:50
Swingline711sorry, description, should that be.12:50
faustmpathy: the filenames are correct, but probably they are not UTF-8 this why he cannot see them correcly in an UTF-8 environment12:51
faustsymbols like "ß" exists also in charset that are not UTF-812:52
pilikeitsSwingline711, but there is one problem. if there is 10 files and i only want one. I can't choose it in early stage i have to wait a while that transmission is starting to download and then i can choose the files.12:52
Swingline711especially with magnet links I would imagine.12:53
pilikeitsSwingline711, before when i press "download torrent" there came a list of files on my screen where i could choose what to download.12:53
agent_whitepilikeits: It's because it needs to first create the list of all the possible files.12:53
mpathyfaust: yes and äüö too.. so I really wondering what happend12:53
agent_whiteSo sometimes you need to wait for it to load, before de-selecting unwanted items.12:53
faustmpathy: maybe I'm missing something12:53
Swingline711yes magnets are a little bit different since they will need to 'lend' or 'ask' other clients for further information. pilikeits12:53
Swingline711a physical compiled .torrent file has loads of those things built in. So there is a difference.12:54
pilikeitsSwingline711, ok :) thank you12:54
Swingline711a magnet only has like a 'hint' of the signature of a torrent file information.12:54
pilikeitsagent_white, thank you for you too :)12:55

compdocbut eth2 can work, as long as it has an address13:01
shadowe989coddder: try downloading via command line before u go through the trouble of switching.13:02
shadowe989coddder: wget ipv4.download.thinkbroadband.com/100MB.zip13:03
shadowe989coddder: if that has the same problem then it might be something more.13:03
coddder@shadowe989 I'll however I have to go offline for a moment.13:04
dragonflyDoes anyone know how to get remote desktop display connection with graphic monitoring from windows 7 to ubuntu?13:04
coddderI mean, to disconnect wifi13:04
shadowe989coddder: I'll  be here just type my name and hit tab to get my attention.13:04
coddderReally thanks13:04
coddderIMHO the problem doesn't exist on Windows13:05
shadowe989coddder: if wget (web get) has a problem then we know something is up with linux then. Then we can check into other things.13:05
theadminegg_: You don't have to remove GRUB, Windows will overwrite the bootloader after installation.13:06
theadminegg_: Just boot from a Windows DVD13:06
theadminegg_: You need to tell your BIOS to boot from it13:07
mpathyfaust: EriC^^: I found a tool because I started another search because I didnt believe nobody worked on this topic already, and I had (finally) success: h2rename - http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/H2rename-Dateien-und-Verzeichnisse-umbenennen-292168.html - it works automagically ;)13:07
shadowe989egg_: theadmin is correct, windows will replace it with its own.13:07
egg_theadmin: ok i m going to try13:08
dragonflyPlease, can somebody help me..?13:08
EriC^^mpathy: great! :)13:08
egg_shadowe989: thx to you too13:08
theadmindragonfly: I didn't really understand the "graphic monitoring" part, but TeamViewer is one of the easiest remote desktop tools to set up for Windows, Linux and OS X13:08
faustmpathy: good :)13:08
godbod  13:08
shadowe989dragonfly: I just signed in, maybe I might be able to help real quick.13:09
UnHolyTerrordragonfly, what is the problem you are having?13:09
shadowe989dragonfly: what is the problem?13:09
shadowe989egg_: np good luck =)13:09
coddder_@shadowe989 unable to resolve the host...13:09
coddder_And u can see, wifi works like a charm13:09
compdocdragonfly, you can try installing vino, which lets you share the desktop13:09
shadowe989coddder_: do you know how to configure "DNS Settings"?13:10
dragonflyWell i would like to remote desktop on my linux machines one is ubuntu another is kali but anways I don't want the terminal remote desktop connection.. I would like a "display" connection like when you are connecting with TV from windows to windows..13:10
shadowe989coddder_: or have you ruled that out?13:10
UnHolyTerrordragonfly, so you don't want SSH, you want GUI???13:11
dragonflyyes GUI13:11
coddder_shadowe989 no ... however, I've tried many solutions and I think that I should reinstall lubuntu.13:11
UnHolyTerrorOk, what desktop are you using (on Ubuntu)?13:11
coddder_shadowe989 I mean before doing sth else13:11
egg_shadowe989: theadmin  / i cant reach the bios, i get a error unknow filesystem13:11
theadminegg_: You are skipping the BIOS setup13:12
shadowe989coddder_: well 1sec let me see, so your ethernet is the problem right?13:12
dragonflyAmm I'm sorry what do you mean by what desktop?13:12
theadminegg_: You can "reach" the BIOS even without a hard drive13:12
coddder_shadowe989 yes13:12
coddder_How I've said, wifi works like a charm13:12
shadowe989coddder_: do you know the ip to your router?13:12
UnHolyTerrordragonfly, what ubuntu are you using?13:12
dragonfly14.04 64 bit13:13
shadowe989coddder_: like for me its,
shadowe989coddder_: try to ping it via: ping
coddder_shadowe989 I think that it's not related to my router because the same problem at school13:13
sacarlsoncoddder_: sounds like you might have a good eth2 but you just don't set it up13:13
UnHolyTerrordragonfly, is it GNOME, KDE, etc?13:13
shadowe989coddder_, sacarlson thats what im leaning towards.13:14
coddder_shadowe989 I can reinstall my lubuntu to delete all the used solutions and write tomorrow.13:14
sacarlsoncoddder_: iwconfig will verifty that eth2 is not your wifi13:14
shadowe989coddder_: I do not think reformating will help if its a configuration issue or driver.13:14
UnHolyTerrorOk, what have you tried? I use 'Remote Desktop Viewer' found under Menu->Internet13:14
dragonflyYes but I want to connect to ubuntu from windows not from ubuntu to windows.13:15
shadowe989coddder_: its most likely just a quick fix.13:15
coddder_shadowe989 yes but I tried to disable some things ... and I think that it can cause other problem13:15
sacarlsoncoddder_: if eth2 is your wifi then you might try sudo ifconfig eth1 up13:16
shadowe989sacarlson: did he say it said eth2?13:16
shadowe989sacarlson: wlan0 should be for wireless generally.13:16
dragonflyUnHolyTerror: I can connect from ubuntu to windows, but I want to connect from windows to ubuntu via GUI13:16
sacarlsoncoddder_: yes he pastebinit ifconfig but all that was seen was eth2 and lo13:16
coddder_It was from my school where there is only eth13:17
coddder_no wifi13:17
coddder_but the same problem with eth at home13:17
coddder_and wifi works like a charm13:17
coddder_what's more, on Windows at school eth works13:17
UnHolyTerrordragonfly, ok, so you need to tell ubuntu to allow Remote Desktop, look under Preferences->Remote desktop or something like that (I'm on 10.10)13:17
sacarlsoncoddder_: well we would need to know what is the wifi and what is cat5 lan  with iwconfig  that can be done13:18
coddder_I don't think that format can help but It can make it clear that there aren't problems related with the previous solutions13:18
dragonflyYes but amm what software should I use? Teamviewer?13:18
shadowe989dragonfly: vnc is built in ubuntu for remote desktop13:19
ubottuVNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX13:19
dragonflyAha thanks.13:19
coddder_So sacarlson and  shadowe989 I'll write your nicknames and I'll write after formatting13:19
dragonflyThis is what I have needed! Thanks a lot!13:19
UnHolyTerrorOnce you set up that, just use Remote Desktop from windows to connect.13:20
coddder_U are from USA? Because thing is that I'm from Poland and the time can be a problem13:20
dragonflyOk thank you all UnHolyTerror, Shadowe989, ubottu13:20

popeyacovrig: you shouldn't need that14:37
shadowe989Noobproblems: grub is the bootloader that handles that stuff14:37
popeyacovrig: I mean, you shouldn't have to be fiddling with kernel modules14:37
popeyacovrig: dunno why it's greyed out though, sorry.14:37
Noobproblemsshadowe989 so, if I restart the PC I will be able to choose now?14:37
acovrigpopey: I wonder if when I purged everything graphical a while back, if I killed something I shouldn’t have14:37
shadowe989Noobproblems: strange enough ubuntu generally doesn't wipe windows from the boot menu... hmm14:37
shadowe989Noobproblems: yes in theory but stay connected just incase.14:37
NoobproblemsI think I did something wrong while installing it.14:38
shadowe989Noobproblems: why do you say that14:38
NoobproblemsBecause I have 2 harddrives14:38
Noobproblemsone SSD and a HDD14:38
Noobproblemsthe SSD has the windows but I partioned the HDD14:38

avoiderhi yes the plugin indicator is still acting up even when i went back the the defult ubuntu themes.14:41
paulzz libogre-1.9-dev wants to use boost 46, is there I way I can make it install ignoring boost 46 as I want it to use version 55?14:41
Noobproblemsolveshadowe989 thank you very much, it worked perfectly!14:41

acovrigpopey: cat /proc/asound/modules shows snd_hda_intel, should it show some HDMI option?14:46
acovrigmplayer -ao alsa:device=hw=0.7 works, but any idea how I would set it as system default?14:48
solsTiCeacovrig: if i remember well into ~/.maplyerrc ?14:49
acovrigsolsTiCe: I want to set it system-wide, not just for mplayer14:50
belgianguypaulzz: if OGRE has a dependency on 46 why change it?14:50
acovrigsolsTiCe: should I put pcm.!default { type hw card 0 device 7 } in my /etc/asound.conf ?14:51
paulzzbelgianguy: because the other code that uses ogre fails to build with that version of boost because that version of boost has a bug that the other code hits14:52
belgianguypaulzz: care to tell what bug?14:54
belgianguymaybe someone else has had it before14:54
paulzzbelgianguy: it fails to build when boost::shared_ptr is used when cpp11 is enabled in the compiler options14:55
VladimirskiI ping my server remotely but when I shutdown the server the ping is still successful??14:57
VladimirskiI ping my server remotely but when I shutdown the server the ping is still successful??14:57
Vladimirskiso the public IP is the router I guess14:57
VladimirskiMy question, how do I ping the server specifically?S14:57
hehehey folks I installed usb huawei stick it asks for pin i also set correct provider data but then enable mobile broadband box is greyed out14:58
hehehow I can enable it?14:58
daftykinsVladimirski: from on the internet? you can't14:59
daftykinsVladimirski: assuming you're talking about a computer behind a router with SSH port forwarded14:59
Vladimirskican't I just specify the port (port forwarding port) daftykins14:59
hehedo I need usb modem switch15:00
daftykinsVladimirski: ping is a completely different protocol (ICMP) than TCP and UDP, you can't ping ports.15:00
paulzzhehe: only way would be to forward all ICMP to the ubuntu machine15:01
hehepaulzz: how to do it?15:01
Vladimirskiyeah, but it must be possible somehow to ping a machine behind a router15:01
daftykinsVladimirski: no.15:01
daftykinsVladimirski: not unless you had a second host you can connect into and ping the first via its' local address. it's simply not possible15:02
daftykinsalso this topic is more relevant for #networking not here15:02
paulzzhehe: dunno, I think it can be done with iptables, dunno about a hardware router15:02
daftykinspaulzz: you read the wrong nickname.15:03
daftykinsyou're both discussing wrong topics ;)15:03
paulzzoh woops ;]15:03
belgianguypaulzz: is there a ticket of that bug somewhere?15:06
mohamedAziz17Hello guys15:06
belgianguymaybe that can shed some light on it15:06
belgianguybut I'm afraid PPA's are out if you want to use 5515:07
paulzzbelgianguy: cant find one, nearest is this https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/846915:10
belgianguypaulzz: is the cpp11 essential?15:12
belgianguyif yes, maybe building from source might be an option, but that's a whole other tin of worms15:12
mikhkael_k33hlMy laptop seems to overheat and turn off instantly when using bumblee to run dota 2.15:14
strikovHi guys. I just installed 14.04 on raid1 and observe strange difference in behavior against 12.04. This difference takes place when I try to boot the machine with degraded raid (with one hdd turned off). 12.04 tells me something like 'raid is degraded, do you want to continue, y/N?' during kernel initialization but 14.04 freezes for a few seconds and silently continues booting. Is there any way to return to 12.04's behavior which seems much more inform15:14
strikovative to me? Thanks.15:14
daftykinsmikhkael_k33hl: sounds more like a hardware issue. perhaps you need to clean it internally of dust.15:14
mikhkael_k33hldaftykins: It's a laptop and it doesn't happen on windows15:15
daftykinsmikhkael_k33hl: oh well, optimus functionality isn't great under Linux, either test with nvidia-prime also or it's not likely to be an option15:15
belgianguypaulzz: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:n9pwG1VSQrgJ:ubuntuxtreme.com/howto/how-to-install-ogre-sdk-from-source/&hl=en&gl=be&strip=115:17
mikhkael_k33hldaftykins: You knhow, I was running Ubuntu before and didn't have any problem, then I switched distro then went back. :D15:17
belgianguythe url wouldn't load otherwise, so it's the text only version :/15:17
k1l_mikhkael_k33hl: bumblebee is outdated.15:18
daftykinsmikhkael_k33hl: what version is this then?15:18
k1l_mikhkael_k33hl: use nvidia-prime instead15:18
mikhkael_k33hldaftykins: ubuntu 14.0415:19
daftykinsk1l_: even though that's the official line, prime doesn't work as well for 90% of users so it's pretty terrible advice15:19
k1l_daftykins: most users coming here with issue have gotten prime to work15:19
daftykinsyeah with massive tearing15:19
daftykinsk1l_: seems to me it goes thusly: 1) bumblebee works with lower performance but perfect image 2) nvidia-prime sometimes works but has major tearing on the desktop or in games15:20
jevoniaHi, this is a long story. I need to know how I can get my computer to require the password in order to log in. My best friend managed to put a password back on my account as administrator but it doesn't require it o log in. also, every time I open Google Chrome browser it asks me to put a password in for whatever reason and I have to use my old password for that. I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.15:22
k1lmikhkael_k33hl: nevertheless: remove all nvidia and bumblebee you got there. then install nvidia-331 and nvidia-prime. see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/HybridGraphics15:22
Z3Hi, I have a clean install of ubuntu 14.04 64 bit with encrypted home partition. I defined a swap partition of 2 GB at install time. But after install, swap is not available. What is the best way to enable swap ?15:25
Z3sorry, encrypted home (no extra partition)15:25
cfhowlett!swap | Z315:26
ubottuZ3: 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 info15:26
Z3cfhowlett I know that. But how can I enable it?15:26
popeyjevonia: there's an option in system settings -> user accounts to enable "automatic login" (or in your case disable it)15:26
Z3it's a default install, is weird it is not enabled by default15:26
popeyZ3: is it listed in /etc/fstab ?15:27
daftykinsZ3: the idea is you read the link to find out how to check it / turn it on :)15:27
jevoniaPopey: Well, that's the thing it's not enabled, nor was it ever enabled.15:27
popeyjevonia: thats where you go to switch it15:27
Z3popey. yes, this is my fstab:15:28
popeyZ3: maybe paste into a pastebin like paste.ubuntu.com15:28
jevoniaPopey: Yeah I know, but it's not enabled.15:28
rjoouhrnincykhello :)15:28
rjoouhrnincykn00b question does turning off affect's in compiz speed unity up?15:29
popeyjevonia: is it set somewhere in /etc/lightdm/ ?15:29
popeyrjoouhrnincyk: in general, yes.15:29
EriC^^Z3: looks like you have an encrypted swap15:30
rjoouhrnincykpopey, i kinda thought so, thank's, wasn't sure15:30
popeyZ3: what happens if you "sudo swapon -a" ?15:30
EriC^^Z3: type free -m and see if it shows up15:30
Z3swapon: /dev/sda2: read swap header failed: Invalid argument15:30
Z3swapon: /dev/mapper/cryptswap1: stat failed: No such file or directory15:30
jevoniaPopey: Sorry, I don't know where that is. I'm still new to Ubuntu15:31
popeyjevonia: open nautilus, press ctrl+L, in the box at the top type "/etc/lightdm" then look for files in that folder...15:31
Z3if an unencrypted swap works, I can switch to that to fix the problem15:31
popeyjevonia: what files are listed15:31
jevoniaPopey: Ok, hold on please.15:32
Z3Eric^^ I did it:  Swap:            0          0          015:32
EriC^^Z3: type sudo parted -l15:32
kazdaxHello i have given my ubuntu 2 gigs and its running as a virtual machine15:32
kazdaxits using 1.3 gigs15:33
EriC^^1.3 gigs?15:33
kazdaxany idea why its using so much ?15:33
mdogeubuntu is a bloated pos15:33
kazdax1 gig and 300 mb15:33
EriC^^kazdax: you mean on top of the 6.4gb or so?15:33
Z3Eric^^ http://paste.ubuntu.com/9174416/15:33
kazdax2 gigs15:33
kazdaxits has a total of 2 gigs15:33
Z3Eric^^ the swap partition is 215:34
cfhowlettmdoge, then don't use it.15:34
popeycfhowlett: don't feed the trolls15:34
mdogecfhowlett: dont be offended. I was just answering kazdax's question.\15:34
popeykazdax: how are you measuring the amount of RAM it's using?15:35
kazdaxby using top15:35
cfhowlettpopey, true.  adding to /ignore is much easier in hexchat than xchat.  like this ...15:35
EriC^^Z3: ok you can use it unencrypted if you want, or make an encrypted one i guess15:35
popeykazdax: pastebin the top 10 lines of top please?15:35
Z3Eric^^ ok, then prefer encrypted. What I have to do?15:35
popeykazdax: also, see http://www.linuxatemyram.com/15:36
jevoniaPopey: I don't know what or how to open Nautilus. Please specify if that's not too much to ask for.15:36
k1lkazdax: linuxatemyram.com15:36
popeyjevonia: nautilus is the name of the file manager15:36
kazdaxeveyrthing is running slow for some reason15:36
kazdaxeven i thought ihave 700 mb free15:36
popeykazdax: are you running Unity in the VM?15:36
popeykazdax: which vm? vmware/virtualbox?15:37
strikovkazdax: 'free -m' shows that my default installation of 14.04 takes about 1GB while running using virtualbox which ~ correlates with your numbers15:37
popeykazdax: you have about 700Mb used15:38
popeythe 1.4GB also contains the 700MB cached ram. You have more free memory than you think.15:38
Z3I fixed following the web page:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq15:38
Z3thank you ! :)15:38
popeyZ3: happy days15:38
k1lkazdax: free -m and then the 2nd line. read the link i gave you15:38

godbod no I mean the GPS location15:43
popeyjevonia: there should be a "Files" icon somewhere?15:43
jevoniaPopey: By saving pictures, music, videos, etc. in the folders that specify that.15:44
popeyjevonia: are you using unity?15:44
jevoniaPopey: No, I'm using Ubuntu 14.0415:44
popeyjevonia: Ubuntu 14.04 ships by default with the Unity desktop.15:45
popeyjevonia: there should be an icon on the left which is labelled "Files" - if not, Press ALT+F2, and type nautilus, then press enter. Do you then get a file manager up?15:45
jevoniaPopey: Ok, I'll try.15:46

cfhowlett!flavors | Thomasloldk16:08
ubottuThomasloldk: !Ubuntu-GNOME, !Kubuntu, !Xubuntu and !Lubuntu are simply flavors of Ubuntu that come with GNOME, KDE, Xfce, and LXDE (respectively) installed as default, instead of Unity. Other specialized flavors of Ubuntu include !Edubuntu, Ubuntu !Studio, and !Mythbuntu.16:08

Thomasloldkcfhowlett what is it then - is it just a spin off like mint ?16:09
pavlixah, the link works when I first switch to a newer version of ubuntu16:10
cfhowlettThomasloldk, a fork ... but they hope to become an official flavor with 15.04 according to their blog16:10
dorkusmaximusthink i might have a hardware prob or driver prob. i have ubuntu 14.04, intel hd4600 graphics. ever so often, my screen just goes to rapidly flashing bright solid colors and i have to hard resent the computer. any ideas?16:10
DJonescfhowlett: Thomasloldk: #ubuntu-mate is the support channel for Ubuntu mate, it didn't quite make it to be an official flavour this time, but may well do for the next release16:10
cfhowlettpavlix, sorry, no idea16:11

jevoniaHi, this is kind of a long story but here I go. When I installed this and finally updated to Ubuntu 14.04, I had a password on my account. I took the password off for a few minutes because I wanted to see something. Then I tried to put the password back on but it asked for a password which was not set. I tried the previous password but it didn't work. The previous password only works when I open Google Chrome and it asks for some kind of password key or s16:14
jevoniaomething. My best friend managed to put the password protection back on but when it comes to the login screen it doesn't require a password to log into my administrator account even though it has been put back on. Like I said, the previous password still works whenever I open Google Chrome and it asks for some log in key or something but nothing else. I don't know how to get it so that the password is the same for everything on my account and how to make16:14
jevoniait required for logging into my account.16:14

FelishiaOh WHAT I've just fixed it XD I just forgot to type w X316:38
Felishiaanyway bye bye thanks16:38
agent_whitejevonia: what do you mean "login to admin account" ? -- do you use `sudo su` or run a program with higher privledges via `sudo PROGRAMNAME` ?16:39
kazdaxis there a way to login as root in ubuntu16:39
jevoniaagent_white: No, I mean my account is administrator on my computer.16:39
ZerOlegendthat is not making sense jevonia16:40
agent_whitekazdax: `sudo su`16:40
agent_white\o Zer0legend16:40
ZerOlegendhey agent_white16:40
ZerOlegendjevonia, root is the only "administrator" account with linux16:40
agent_whiteHeya! Good early-morning :)16:40
ZerOlegendanything else is a regular user16:40
jevoniaZer0legend: Tell me about it16:41
kazdaxokay how do i log out from root16:41
sacarlsonkazdax: I think it's like sudo -i16:41
ZerOlegendoh crap it is morning now hadn't noticed16:41
kazdaxsudo su worked16:41
kazdaxbut now i am root and dont want to remain root ..just wanted to know if it was possible16:42
jevoniaZer0legend: Well, I mean when I installed Linux. my boyfriend has account too but my account is Administrator while his is Standard16:42
ZerOlegendi never heard of such a thing with linux maybe I am just getting old16:42
sacarlsonkazdax: just type exit to go back to normal user16:42
kazdaxahh thanks16:42

ZerOlegendjevonia, how did you set your account as administrator?16:44
jevoniaZer0legend: It's frustrating because just anybody can log into my account.16:44
jevoniaZer0legend: It was by default as being the owner of the computer.16:44
ZerOlegendyou are using windows terminology16:45
SchrodingersScatyeah, it's a little unclear what your main concern is16:45
ZerOlegendroot is the only admin account16:45
jevoniazer0legend: My comouter used to have the windows OS but I've installed Ubuntu on it.16:46
ZerOlegendare you sure you are using ubuntu and not windows? because you are not making any sense16:46
kazdaxi think she is saying..her account that she uses is without a password even thou she set one16:47
jevoniazer0legend: yes I'm sure. It says Ubuntu 14.04 LTS as the version of Ubuntu I am using.16:47
agent_whiteZerOlegend: Is is the hour of nonsense I feel! I cannot answer any questions d:16:47
kazdaxand that people can access her computer because it dosnt prompt for a password16:47
ZerOlegendkazdax, afaik you couldn't not have a password16:47
ZerOlegendkazdax,  I have never heard of that16:48
kazdaxokay that only happens on windows then16:48
agent_whitejevonia: What exactly made you realize you had an issue? -- what happened that was unexpected?16:48
ZerOlegendone you log into ubuntu and enter the root password in the master keyring it generally won't prompt for a password for the duration of that session16:48
=== Double is now known as BIT
=== BIT is now known as Guest25762
jevoniaagent_white: well when I went to turn my computer on and log in. The log in screen only said login under my name and still requires a password for my boyfriend's account.16:49
ZerOlegendthat still is not enough information16:50
kazdaxfor some reason i think she is trolling16:50
kazdaxbut thats just me16:50
ZerOlegenddid you set your ubuntu to auto login16:50
ZerOlegendshe is trolling or should not be using a computer16:50
=== Guest25762 is now known as Zeppyt

agent_whitejevonia: So, it asks you which account (of two accounts) you want to login under? -- your account does not require a password, but your boyfriend's account does? is this correct?16:51
jevoniaI also turned the password off and back on because of something else I was trying to do but ever since I never had a password, not even to update and it kept asking for a password that wasn't set. Then my best friend was able to put my password back on but it only works for updating but not for logging into my account.16:51
jevoniaagent_white: yes , correct.16:51
agent_whitejevonia: So then, you wish you add a password back to your account?16:52
kazdaxZerOlegend, you said you cannot have a way to not use password16:52
ZerOlegendgo to terminal and type passwd16:52
ZerOlegendkazdax, when you create an account i thought it would not let you just hit enter16:52
=== Alias is now known as Plug
ZerOlegendbut i also said just as far as i knew because a lot has changed over the years16:53
agent_white^^ jevonia: Do what Zer0legend said after logging into your account. That is the command to change user password.16:53
kazdaxi see16:53
jevoniaagent_white: My best friend already added my password back to my account but I can't log in with it for some reason.16:53
=== Plug is now known as Ice
jevoniaI've already done that and it still doesn't require a password to login.16:54
ZerOlegendjevonia, how is it you even installed linux?16:54
ZerOlegendno offense but if you are doing something wrong somewhere and what you are telling us does not make a whole lot of sense16:55
shadowe989you can have a account without a password on servers but you can't login.16:55
jevoniaI installed it through my best friend, his old disc of Ubuntu 9 I think and I just kept updating until the latest version16:55
androiduserpubuntu uses systemd?16:55
jevoniaI know it doesnt make any sense, how do you think I feel.16:55
agent_whitejevonia: "my friend... added back the password" ... "I can't login" ... "it doesn't require password to login"16:56
jevoniaIt's extra frustrating. I don't even know how that happens.16:56
tr33m4n@androiduserp I don't think so, but there are plans to in the future16:56
agent_whiteThe last statement conlflicts the others completeley. Now I'm not sure if you CAN login, or if you CANNOT.16:56
androiduserptr33m4n i see thanks16:57
shadowe989agent_white: she/he is locked out I believe.16:57
ZerOlegendwell she is on it right now on irc no less16:57
agent_whiteI still don't understand.16:57
ZerOlegendthat is waht I do not get if she knows enough about ubuntu to have it running and logged in and on irc but cant figure out the password stuff?16:57
jevoniaNo, I CAN log in but there's no password set according to the log in screen but there really is a password set now.16:57
ZerOlegendmakes no sense whatsoever16:57
agent_whiteShe says a password was apparently set, yet she cannot use it to login, yet there is no password?16:57
=== Ice is now known as Jokey
shadowe989agent_white: not being prompted for a password. That doesn't matter if she is on IRC, alot of people have multiple computers.16:57

androiduserpdoes ubuntu support high resolution laptop displays? like 3000 x something pixels17:02
phunyguywait, so what exactly is the issue?17:02
agent_whitejevonia: http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html -- Please read this so we can solve your question sooner than later next time.17:02
agent_whitephunyguy: Hard to understand.17:03
phunyguycan login but wants to be prompted for a password, and autologin is disabled?17:03
shadowe989phunyguy: correct, it was just a misunderstanding.17:04
phunyguysounds to me that either A.) They are confusing what "login" is, or B.) The account has NO password.17:04
agent_whiteJust "combining" login with irrelevant things like 'chrome passwords'17:04
shadowe989I understand but not everyone knows the terms.17:05
ZerOlegendphunyguy, im going with A on that17:06
androiduserpi am looking for laptops but most of them are crap quality will ubuntu run on a macbook?17:06
agent_whiteshadowe989: I know :)  That's why I bring up the point as (even though I am not great with terminology) explaining the problem correctly is 80% of the battle to solving it.17:06
ZerOlegendi had to ignore he/she/it because it was too frustrating anymore for me to even watch17:06
ZerOlegendits like half their terms are windows17:06
shadowe989agent_white: thats perfectly normal17:06
agent_whiteshadowe989: Indeed.17:07
daftykinsandroiduserp: it can't be guaranteed that every feature will work on macs, so no - best avoided.17:07
shadowe989ZerOlegend: what if shes a lawyer?17:07
ZerOlegendthat would make sense then17:07
phunyguyalright, let's stay on topic and not talk bad about people.17:07
shadowe989I mean not everyone has time to learn.17:07
shadowe989agreed phunyguy .17:07
jevoniaphunyguy: Thank you.17:08
cfhowlettandroiduserp, short answer: yes.17:09
agent_whiteshadowe989: True. But learning how to ask questions properly is a VERY good trait to learn.17:09
agent_whiteOtherwise we get the "what the customer wanted..." thing going on.17:09
jevoniaTo the rest: It's not like you know the whole story but I'm used to using crappy ass windows but I like Ubuntu better so far.17:09
MonkeyDustjevonia  thank you for sharing your appreciation with us17:10
jevoniaAnd did we not catch the whole I'M NEW TO UBUNTU/LINUX part.17:10

agent_whitejevonia: I hope you find your solution.17:11
agent_whitejevonia: Please take a series of screenshots otherwise, so you can illustrate your issue to us.17:11
jevoniaI did present the issue but it was kind of a long story is all17:12
jevoniaI was thinking about doing that too but I don't know how to send them on here.17:12
shadowe989jevonia: did the 'autologin' switch not toggle for you?17:12
jevoniashadowe989: it's on but it didn't change anything.17:13
agent_whitejevonia: That's fine, part of the process of how to explain briefly. (I am terrible at it.)17:13
agent_whitejevonia: You turned it "off", right?17:14
jevoniaagent_white: Since it was a long story, I was just trying to mention all the things that seemed important enough to mention.17:14
shadowe989Yeah that was a slip, I said "on". It needs to be off. Multitasking fail here. heh.17:15
agent_whitejevonia: All good :)17:15
jevoniaagent_white: No, not yet because I'm still talking to you on here.17:15
agent_whitejevonia: Hahah. Good point.17:15
agent_whitejevonia: So the first focus is disabling auto-login for a user account.17:15
agent_whiteOn startup?17:15
agent_whiteOr do you hit the "choose a user" first, click on your user account, and it auto-login's ?17:16
shadowe989agent_white: i want ask her to run commands but thats not good for new...17:16
jevoniaagent_white: That's the thing, I've never enabled it. I've never touched the button.17:16
shadowe989albz3589: later.17:16
agent_whitejevonia: So you're saying it is disabled?17:16
agent_whiteDoesn't matter what you did or didn't, just what the state of it is currently.17:16
mikhaHi all. So I'm trying to install Ubuntu 14.10 on my roommate's laptop, but I can't find any wifi networks. Anyone have a fix?17:16
mikhaWell, not trying, it is installed.17:17
jevoniaYes, it's been disabled since I installed Ubuntu on my computer.17:17
ZerOlegendok jevonia when you turn on the computer and let it run without touching anything what happens?17:17
ZerOlegenddo you get to the desktop or some login menu with user names in a list?17:17
shadowe989jevonia: I believe I have a solution for you17:18
cfhowlettmikha, have you completed the installation?17:18
agent_whitemikha: How are you attempting to find other networks? What is the error that proves it is unable to find a network? etc.17:18
shadowe989jevonia: can you open a terminal? press: control + alt + t?17:18
jevoniaIt'll boot up as usual and come to the login screen. Then I just click login because it doesnt say anything about entering my password, which is set , to remind you.17:19
jevoniaYes, hold on a sec17:19
ZerOlegendare you selecting a username at that login menu?17:19
jevoniaOpened terminal17:19
shadowe989jevonia: ok type this exactly as I say... sec17:20
shadowe989jevonia: gksudo gedit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf17:20
jevoniaYes but it only says login under my name with no password promt.17:20
jevoniaok, hold on shadowe98917:20
shadowe989it will ask for your password then a text editor will appear17:20

shadowe989agent_white: its lightdm, im sure of it.17:22
shadowe989agent_white: if you type that command it has a "autologin-user" field17:23
shadowe989agent_white: that will allow even a passworded account to still click the name and bypass17:23
jevoniaOk, I will17:23
agent_whiteshadowe989: Oh really?17:23
ZerOlegendok shadowe989 that makes more sense17:23
ZerOlegendmost wm's autologin just auto logs in without displaying a selection17:23
jevoniaAnd I typed it in and another window popped up17:24
ZerOlegendthat is why i wanted to know more information earlier17:24
shadowe989jevonia: yep17:24
shadowe989jevonia: gedit right?17:24
shadowe989jevonia: I need you to look for a line that says "autologin-user=", it will have your name on it probably.17:24

TheBigDealis there a way i can resize my filesystem partition?17:41
ZerOlegendTheBigDeal, unmount it and use gparted17:41
TenLeftFingersZerOlegend: I'll try that too, thank you17:41
ZerOlegendTenLeftFingers, that is the same thing agent_white said17:41
k1lTheBigDeal: start a live system and resize it17:41
TheBigDealZerOlegend, But i'm using it17:41
TheBigDealk1l, hm17:41
jevoniashadowe989: it says [sudo] password for Jevonia17:41
shadowe989jevonia: yes put in your password17:42
ZerOlegendTheBigDeal, you cant resize a mounted partition17:42
Guest13982Hello. I recently had some files that I could not delete in my trash folder, and now I cannot delete any files. http://pastebin.com/SJZRU3a117:42
Guest13982I ran these commands that I found on http://askubuntu.com/questions/216644/i-cannot-delete-files-from-roots-trash17:42
TheBigDealZerOlegend, even if i'm using it the filesystem one?17:42
ZerOlegendTheBigDeal, again if the partition is mounted you cannot resize it, it has to be unmounted so use a liveusb or livedvd and do it that way17:43
jevoniashadowe989: it's not typing while I'm typing my password.17:43
Guest13982I can still remove files via terminal rm -r, but not by deleting icons in gui, it says that the folder is missing17:43
TheBigDealZerOlegend, alright17:43
shadowe989jevonia: yeah it hides your password so people can't watch over you17:43
TenLeftFingersagent_white: ZerOlegend the app just says "connection to Pulse Audio failed" :017:43
mikhaAnyone there? Still haven't resolved this :P17:43
shadowe989jevonia: its typing even if it doesn't look like it.17:43
cfhowlettmikha, patience17:43
ZerOlegendTenLeftFingers, what packages did you remove ?17:43
agent_whiteGuest13982: How are you attempting to delete the files inthe trash folder? Through the nautilus GUI or a terminal?17:44
mikhaWill do, sorry.17:44
solsTiCeGuest13982: type f5 to refresh the window17:44
Guest13982agent_white: I am selecting through gui. sudo rm -r removes them okay in terminal.17:44
TenLeftFingersZerOlegend: ardour and qjackctl. I removed and reinstalled ubuntu-desktop and it pulled in a few things I had removed (solitaire and mines).17:44
shadowe989jevonia: it should do nothing after u put in your password.17:45
jevoniashadowe989: ok, it says removing user jevonia from group nopasswdlogin17:45
ZerOlegendok it was jackd that messed it up for you17:45
shadowe989jevonia: or that my bad =) going by memory.17:45

Jarvixubuntu 14.04 on dell inspiron 1545 with external monitor. video lags when accessing Dash. thoughts?17:59

bubbasaurest4nk315, ctrl-x is not the nomodeset boot you have to choose it.18:40
bubbasaurest4nk315, What do you see at this grub window?18:40
mosquitoHmm, does somebody know how to instal mssql ?18:41
ZerOlegendin ubuntu?18:42
faustmosquito: why?18:42
ZerOlegendyou don't18:42
t4nk315bubbasaures, I see Try Ubuntu, Install Ubuntu, OEM install(for manufactureers), Check disc for defects18:42
mosquitoWell because of this:  because seems like website can't connect..18:42
faustmosquito: maybe you want to use mysql18:43
t4nk315bubbasaures, I think I gotta it. "You put nomodeset between the quiet and splash part."  Found it after my 1000ths google search18:43
dpkg_issues98697cfhowlett: thanks, I'm looking into getting an old kernel to load without sitting on the grub screen. (Its a remote computer)18:43
k1l<k1l> dpkg_issues98697: how did you install that other kernels?18:44
mosquitoWell actualy this page is a webhost where you can signup and the database is on a remote dedicated server. And the logins and ip, ports are all ok. And I don't know why it can't connect now :/18:44
cfhowlettdpkg_issues98697, I accidentally nuked a library computer today ...18:44
bubbasaurest4nk315, Yes, that will work, I have not gotten to the kernel edit on a install there.18:44
dpkg_issues98697k1l: All of the kernels were installed doing normal dist-upgrade , I only started trying to mess with them when I kept getting update/upgrade errors18:45
habhattimosquito: What do you mean by "this page"?18:45
k1ldpkg_issues98697: no, the 3.5 kernels18:45
t4nk315bubbasaures, Thanks for taking the time to help man18:45
dpkg_issues98697cfhowlett: The only reason I didn't just do that was they I happened to extend the timeout instead of setting it to a "wait for input setting"18:46
bubbasaurest4nk315, Thanks lets just see you get all setup, good job backing up windows, you are set for any failure with a smile.18:46
dpkg_issues98697k1l : I did upgrade this machine from 12.04 to 14.04.  Is that the kernel from 12.04 still running?18:46
mosquitoWebsite which is on webhost ( ) is just a website where people can check news, and download game client since its a website for a game. And this website also includes registration which is forwarded to a remote dedicated server.18:47
habhattimosquito: Right. And is that server running Ubuntu, or?18:47
faustmosquito: I think that your problem is about the configuration of a php script maybe you should ask on #php18:47
k1ldpkg_issues98697: sorry your story gets confusing the more you tell. you started with "i had installed the 3.5 kernel and removed the 3.13 because i thought the 2.5. were the latest"18:47
mosquitoWell phpscript works if I'm using a windows vps,18:47
dpkg_issues98697k1l: I've never manually installed any kernels, just the ones that came automatically18:48
mosquitoNo the remote server is running windows server 2k818:48
k1ldpkg_issues98697: depending on what you did to install the 3.5 kernel that can explain your issues now18:48

faustmosquito: do you have admin access on the server the hosts the script?18:49
bkrvnGuys guys! My analog sound output stopped working after a restart. Help me debug this please!18:50
habhattimosquito: Your Apache/PHP configuration cannot access the DNS for your remote db server.18:50
faustmosquito: are you able to resolv the hostname that is written in the script from CLI?18:50
tafa2My server says: 10 packages can be updated. 10 updates are security updates.18:50
tafa2But apt-get update && apt-get upgrade only show 4 packages to be updated?18:50
bkrvnI'm on 14.04.1. It was just working half an hour ago. I was fiddling with a second monitor and restarted several times18:50
mosquitofaust: what do you mean by resolv ? that it can not reach it?18:51
bubbasaurestafa2, run dist-upgrade18:51
habhattimosquito Can you look up your db server's hostname from the command line?18:51
mosquitoOk one second.18:52
dpkg_issues98697k1l: Sorry.  I'll back it up.  Some months ago I upgraded to 14.04 and after that I started noticing errors on boot and when I tried to run apt-get update.  In the past I've only really had problems when I need to clean up old kernels so today I went in, checked what version was running, which was already 3.5  .  I assumed that was the current one, since usually when I update to do ones it will automatically switch to those.  I then 18:52
bubbasaurestafa2, dist-upgrade is a security and kernel "ok"18:52
k1ldpkg_issues98697: ok, try a "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a"18:52

habhattimosquito: Consider using Google DNS nameservers using resolveconf?18:58
mosquitoYes, I can also give you the logins and you can check it on ur own :P18:59

TheBigDealCan i save my applications in another partition instead of the filesystem partition?19:05
bubbasauresTheBigDeal, Why?19:06
TheBigDealbubbasaures, no more space19:06
bubbasauresTheBigDeal, Probably resizing is what you need.19:07
faustmosquito: it looks weird to me to use comma as an ip:port separator, usually it is a colon19:07
dpkg_issues98697k1l: I did the reconfigure, then I tried to fix dependencies again but I'm seeing the same (errors were encountered while processing) should I go ahead and try dist-upgrade?19:07
faustmosquito: but maybe your script expect it to be like that idk19:07
TheBigDealbubbasaures, Yes i know, i wanted to create a live usb to resize the file system partition but i had some problems.19:07

k1ldpkg_issues98697: is /boot a seperate partition?19:09
dpkg_issues98697k1l: it's lvm, I think that means it has to be separate, right?19:12
k1ldpkg_issues98697: did you make some modifying of grub?19:12
TheBigDealbubbasaures, well, you didn't answer my first question, you just asked another question :)19:12
owen1nmz787: in mapping my End key to mouse click? no. i think the issue is this command - xmodmap -e 'keycode 115 = Pointer_Button1'   it's not Pointer_Button119:12
bubbasauresTheBigDeal, Your first question is a whim, not a good idea.19:12
k1ldpkg_issues98697: ah, i am not fmailiar with lvm. please make sure there are either the things in /boot in the main partition or there is a /boot partition in "mount"19:12
dpkg_issues98697k1l: no not on purpose, but this error keeps popping up19:12

owen1nmz787: i am also trying to make it harder to type fn key. i want it to be shift+fn so i tried this: xmodmap -e 'keycode 151 = NoSymbol XF86WakeUp NoSymbol'  but nothing happened.19:13

nmz787owen1: i don't know much about keyboard remapping, though I did mess with it when I last installed ubuntu19:13
nmz787owen1: that was more related to some stupid issue with the gnome terminal and changing tabs in it19:14
nmz787owen1: I was asking about your biose19:14
nmz787owen1: I saw you mentioning some dd commands, so it seems you were trying to make a bootable disc19:14
t4nk315bubbasaures, Do I need to have nomodeset permanently added to the boot loader? Now when Ubuntu starts up I get the black screen again.  Do I need to find and install drivers?19:14
nmz787bootable floppy/usb drive19:15
dpkg_issues98697k1l: ok, the root directory does have a /boot/ it's not in mount19:15
owen1nmz787: oh. the bios. i didn't try updating the bios. the reason i wanted to do that is hibernation not working. someone here told me updating the bios is extreme. so i decided to find different solution. havn't find it yet.19:15
k1ldpkg_issues98697: that is fine (but i am not sure if for lvm)19:15
bubbasaurest4nk315, Hard to say, I would think drivers are available. nomodeset is a per-session use most often to get in to run updates/upgrades and load anything needed.19:16
dpkg_issues98697k1l: it was working fine with the same partition setup for more than a year, something seems to have gotten odd after the 14.04 upgrade19:16
nmz787owen1: updating the bios isn't extreme, you just need to be cautious19:16
k1ldpkg_issues98697: i am afk now. see  the link19:16
owen1nmz787: i don't know what 'cautious' means19:17
nmz787owen1: you need to make sure the download of the new image wasn't corrupted19:17
owen1nmz787: how?19:17
nmz787owen1: which you do with a CRC or md5 hash19:17
nmz787owen1: the bios update program might do it for you19:17
nmz787owen1: if the manufacturer didn't provide the md5 to compare against19:17
bubbasaurest4nk315, Once installed and having run a update and upgrade there is a additional drivers tab in the software & updates app where we see graphic choices19:18
nmz787owen1: there should be a program on your computer called md5sum19:18
owen1nmz787: yup. i know that19:18
owen1let me look at the lenovo site19:18
nmz787owen1: if the manufacturer had the md5 sum next to the bios image, you would compare running md5sum on the image you downloaded vs the sum on their site19:18
owen1nmz787: before i do that, is there a way to tell the version of bios i currently have?19:19
nmz787owen1: likely in your bios there is a version somewhere19:19
nmz787you might have to press a key to bring up some help screen19:19
owen1so i have to restart19:19
nmz787there may be another way through some utility or ACPI tools19:19
nmz787owen1: did lenovo give you a bios flash tool, or does it provide the updater through the bios menu?19:20
owen1nmz787: i don't know (for both questions)19:20
nmz787owen1: or does it give you an image that it asks you to boot up?19:20

owen1nmz787: on lenovo's website i see BIOS Update Bootable CD, version 1.18 so i have a pretty recent bios. i don't think it's going to help.19:27

Seveasrio_zenta: do you have an IP? And a default gateway? Can you ping the default gateway? Can you ping other devices on your local network? Is the cable plugged in? :)21:37
rio_zentaSeveas, I set the IP address at .0.175 (assuming that 175 is way out of the DCHP range). I also used nm-tool to check for the correct DNS, gateway, etc.21:38

LordFoobarHi, yesterday I dual-booted to Windows (after about 6 months of not doing so) and Windows screwed the system date. Now, my computer show one hour behind (Windows probably changed DST... by changing the system clock.... who knows...) and, now, I can't change it from Ubuntu Gnome 14.04. ... How does one set up NTP and sync with Gnome 3? All I read on the web is something with systemd (?)21:47
LordFoobarWhy isn't there a UI for that?21:47
bubbasauresLordFoobar, This a wubi install?21:48
k1lLordFoobar: click on the system clock, then settings for date and time. there is a setting for npt syncing21:48
LordFoobarbubbasaures, no. I'm a sorta "long" Linux user and installed Windows 7 mostly for my games when I bought this computer early this year. I installed Ubuntu Gnome 14.04 in dual boot after that using the live CD21:49
LordFoobark1l, all I see is "Automatic Date and Time" and "Automatic Timezone", but no "sync" button, or anywhere to setup the ntp server address21:50
new2ubuntuThank you guys, it worked!21:50
CykitHow do you recover the root password ?21:50
bekksLordFoobar: It just uses the Ubuntu ntp servers.21:50
bekks!root | Cykit21:50
ubottuCykit: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo21:50
SeveasCykit: you don't. But you can set it with sudo or via recovery mode.21:51
k1lLordFoobar: oh yes, there used to be some setting. seems like gnome got rid of that. but the sync is done with the ubuntu ntp servers iirc21:51
LordFoobarbekks, then, why isn't it sync'ing the time? It's been over 15 hours now and the computer is still behind 1 hour21:51
k1lCykit: you dont need to recover. there is none.21:51
bekksLordFoobar: Because NTP will not change the time in one big step, but will adjust it slowly.21:52
SeveasLordFoobar: ntpd doesn't do large leaps. You're going to want to do a manual ntpdate call.21:52
CykitThen what is the purpose of having root access?21:52
LordFoobarSeveas, details?21:52
LordFoobarSeveas, I'm comfortable with the terminal21:52
k1lCykit: please read the message and link from the bot21:52
SeveasLordFoobar: sudo /etc/init.d/ntpd stop; sudo ntpdate ntp.ubuntu.com; sudo /etc/init.d/ntpd start21:52
bekksCykit: The purpose is the ability of performing actions requiring root privileges.21:52
SeveasLordFoobar: you can also tell Ubuntu that the hardware clock runs on local time instead of UTC, to cooperate with windows.21:53
Seveas(though I forgot how, you'll have to google it :))21:53
LordFoobarSeveas, seems like the ntp deamon is not installed O_o21:54
frankdreyhwclock --localtime --systohc is how I did it in Arch, not sure if there are any issues with that in Ubuntu21:54
bekksfrankdrey: There are now issues with that in Ubuntu. But it doesnt change time slowly, but in one big step.21:55
Seveasfrankdrey: that's how to do it once, but iirc there's an initscript that you'll need to tell what to do too21:55
SeveasIt's been ages since I had to care about windows though :)21:56
* frankdrey doesn't multi boot :P21:56
Bashing-omSeveas: Info: Windows defaults to considering the hardware clock to being local time. Ubuntu (and pretty much all *NIX systems) defaults to considering the hardware clock to be UTC. So every time you boot Windows it's "fixing" the hardware clock, and setting it back X hours from UTC to your local time.21:57
frankdreyi just keep all my files online and when i get bored of an OS, wipe and reinstall21:57
SeveasThe only multiboot I do is wearing two boots. 'cause wearing only one is silly :)21:57
SeveasBashing-om: if you had read what's going on, you might have guessed that I already know this :)21:57
rio_zentaSeveas, Is it possible that my router is using the full range for DCHP and that is the issue?21:58
Seveasrio_zenta: could be, but I can't help you debugging if you don't answer my questions.21:58
rio_zentafrankdrey, You've probably never had to deal with the nightmare of setting your system up for dev work21:59
Bashing-omSeveas: OK, then you know to check in " /etc/default/rcS " ?21:59
rio_zentaSeveas, I think I did answer all your questions21:59
rio_zentaSeveas, Even changing my DNS from router to ISP didn't work.21:59
SeveasBashing-om: no, that's the bit I was missing. LordFoobar did you see what Bashing-om just said? the UTC setting in that file is what you need.21:59
frankdreyrio_zenta, eh, i do android apps, install android sdk + intellij + maven, i'm good21:59
waglenouveau doesnt work, yet it was reinstalled, causing the nvidia driver to barf..  yay22:00
rio_zentaDon't you need to compile android apps? frankdrey22:00

mcilroy_is there a command like cat, but it writes the argument string like: cat "this line of text" | ....22:37
SchrodingersScatmcilroy_: like echo?22:37
Seveasrio_zenta: ok, layer 1 and 2 covered. Now gateway. What's your IP and the router's IP?22:37
mcilroy_GODDAMNIT, lol22:37
SchrodingersScatmcilroy_: also printf22:37
mcilroy_i don't know why i thought echo couldnt be piped, so i didnt even check.22:38
rio_zentaSeveas, my routers IP is at .0.1 and the IP for the machine is set to .0.17522:38
Seveaswith the same numbers before the .0.1 and .0.175 I hope? :)22:39
rio_zentaSeveas, yep :)22:39

Seveasrio_zenta: correct22:39
mcilroy_thanks man. it was just a weird brain slip22:40
rio_zentaSeveas, It's giving me the Kernal IP routing table. Output is 3 values22:40
rio_zentaShould there be one for .0.175? Seveas22:40
Seveasyou should have 2 lines with numbers22:41
Seveas0.0.0.0 x.x.0.1 UG 0 0 0 eth022:42
ChogyDanis there a better room to ask about kernel bugs?22:42
Seveasand x.x.0.0 U 9 0 0 eth022:42
rio_zentaSeveas, I have 3 :-/ the middle value is:22:43
bekksrio_zenta: Why dont you pastebin the entire output of netstat -rn? :)22:43
Seveasbekks: becaue he doesn't have a working network connection :)22:43
rio_zentax.x.0.0   U   1000   0   0   eth022:44
Seveasthough he could switch back to dhcp for thi22:44
melihi, can anyone please help me with a gnumeric problem?22:44
rio_zentabekks, The system that is broken doesn't have internet access :-/22:44
rio_zentaI don't know if this makes sense Seveas , but the middle value has an IP that is strange. Destination: ?22:45
x_roothey, just removed the ppa from gnome 3.12 (@ ubuntu 14.04)22:45
Seveasrio_zenta: hmm, that looks like an auto-assigned IP. switch back to dhcp and pastebin the full output22:46
rio_zentameli, state your problem and we can try helping :)22:46
bekksrio_zenta: Thats an APIPA IP address, which indicates that a DHCP interface did not get a valid IP.22:46

Seveasx_root: removing a PPA does not remove the packages you installed from it.22:46
k1lx_root: and did you run "sudo apt-get update"?22:47
x_rootkll yes, ppa-purge22:48
x_rootand no, didn't used update.. (yet..)22:48
melithanks so much in advance. i need to make a line diagram. the problem is that the cells with numbers begin with an apostroph. i tried to change it to numbers format but i can't do it by marking all, it only allows one at a time22:48

melithis is quite a big document22:48

e__Seveas: Thank you, that seems to have done the trick for being able to delete my own files. However, I do not have permission to delete files from my external hd either.22:59

Seveasrio but does the gateway IP appear?23:08
e__Seveas: http://pastebin.com/DCaehxYT I think I added the .Trash-1000 directory a few minutes ago23:08
rio_zentaSeveas, after hitting CTRL+C? Yes, it gives me Address: XXX.XXX.0.123:08
e__sloantothebone: what do you mean frozen?23:09
Seveasrio_zenta: hmm, does the gateway respond to pings properly when on dhcp?23:09
rio_zentaSeveas, yes I tried that. It doesn't give me any "Destination Host Unreachable" errors.23:09
Sevease__: those trash directories look good. Can you try again? Maybe fixing the other trash directory was enough.23:10
Seveasrio_zenta: ok, I'm fairly convinced then that your original hunch was correct and you need to change your routers config to habe a smaller dhcp pool, and maybe even to allow traffic from non-dhcp ip's23:10
rio_zentaSeveas, thank you for your patience and assistance in helping me with this issue. I really appreciate it.23:11

oniongirlhis R/W?23:41
x_rootk1l, just tried to install and the problem is related to mutter-common23:41
x_root(libmutter0c is 'fine', points to the same version, 3.10.4)23:42

daftykinsoniongirl: it's not advisable to use HFS under Linux in write mode at all, so i'm afraid it's simply unwise. you'd be better off buying another drive23:43
x_roothm.. ppa-purge in it can solve?23:43
k1lx_root: yes. this will remove all the packages from that PPA and have you a clean version again23:44
x_roothm.. let me try23:44
x_rootthanks k1l :)23:44
paulzzIs there a way to use packages from a newer Ubuntu version? Is that supported?23:47
daftykinsvery unwise23:48
tewardpaulzz: depends on the package - a lot of times though it's unwise23:48
k1lpaulzz: no, that will make trouble23:48
paulzzwhat problems will it cause, breaking other apps?23:48
Seveaspaulzz: at minimum, you should use the source and rebuild instead of using the binary package23:48
Seveasand yes, unexpected breakages can happen. What are you trying to use?23:49
paulzzwhy rebuild? so long as the libc versions are equal it should work (?)23:49
paulzznewer gcc, boost and libogre23:49
Seveasohh hell no23:49
paulzzI'm not too bothered if it breaks other things in the system23:49
Seveasthat has all kinds of breakage potential23:49
paulzzthis is just for a build VM23:49
tewardpaulzz: by 'break' you'll break everything23:49
tewardpaulzz: why not use a newer release23:49
teward(for the VM)23:49
paulzzthe VM provider only allows Ubuntu 12.04 server23:50
Seveasthen get a better VM provider :)23:50
paulzzso I'm thinking just hack it by installing the 14.04 packages for the stuff I need23:50
tewardpaulzz: um... no23:50
Seveasfor packages like gcc and boost, you'll guarantee that things *will* break in horrible ways. Upgrade.23:51
tewardpaulzz: kernel explosions are likely.  software won't run.  you're better off getting a better VM provider23:51
tewardpaulzz: alternatively, install the VM, run `do-release-upgrade`, maybe it'll slip past them23:51
tewardpaulzz: but if your VM provider ONLY allows Precise, i'd suggest get a new one23:51
paulzzwhy would a newer gcc break the kernel23:52
k1lnewer gcc? oh that might break a lot of stuff.23:53
zerolegendhard to say23:53
zerolegendunstable stuff is unstable23:53
x_rootit worked k1l, thank you :)23:53
k1lx_root: :)23:53
nszcetapaulzz: packages from a new ubuntu version should work fine if you also install their dependencies23:53
nszcetabut be careful because must not mismatch kernel modules and kernel versions23:54
nszcetain general its considered a bad practice because things can get out of hand extremely quickly23:54
Seveasnszceta: and this is where newer boost will screw things up23:54
Seveasc++ is finicky enough as is, boost is in a league of specialness all on its own23:54
paulzzwell so long as these 3 packages work I'm ok with 99% of everything else breaking23:54
nszcetac++ and boost all compile down to libraries23:55
Seveasnszceta: and boost is a dependency of lots of things. All those things *will* break.23:55
nszcetaI see what you mean23:55
Seveasthere's a reason why gcc and boost are updated exactly once in an ubuntu life cycle: at the start. You'll have to rebuild *everything*23:55
nszcetaI use LXC (linux containers) so I don't really care about my host OS23:56
nszcetathis would be a perfect use case for LXC23:56
paulzzwhat is LXC? sounds like something I should look at23:56
Seveasor docker23:56

Seveasdoes lxc work on hosts that are also vm's?23:57
Seveasas paulzz is working on a vm already23:57
nszcetayes, if your host kernel supports LXC23:57
nszcetaI believe you need kernel 3.3 or newer for LXC 1.x23:58
