Finetundra_how can i move files off my phone that has WP7 ?00:00
gansteedcan gtk+ do this work well? insert a html into a gtk+ layer?00:02
gansteed<gansteed> like this in osx: https://camo.githubusercontent.com/e996460609ccffc22690bee5da8ea7bc64fbc480/68747470733a2f2f7261772e6769746875622e636f6d2f4f70656e4669626572732f57595959592d4f53582d6d6164652d696e2d4368696e612f6d61737465722f73637265656e73686f74312e706e6700:02
k1l_Finetundra_: underline the word ubuntu in your question :)00:03
jmaderohi all - I'm trying to mount an image to a folder with Furious ISO mount - I select the img, a new folder appears in my home folder - but it's entirely empty (the img is not empty....I can restore it fine with dd to my device)00:04
Finetundra_how can i move files off my phone that has WP7 on ubuntu?00:05
k1l_Finetundra_: does windows phone provide a usb mount thing? how would you do that on windows?00:05
jmaderoI didn't realize Windows phones still existed....last I saw they were at something like 6% of the market00:06
Finetundra_k1l, plug it in. then windows would install drivers.00:06
k1l_Finetundra_: does it provide a mtp mode?00:07
Finetundra_jmadero, this is an older. however i believe you have the option of getting the recent HTC One M8 w/ WP8. something00:08
Finetundra_k1l, i believe so00:08
jmaderoFinetundra_: if you have MTP you should be fine, but from what I see the 7.x line does not have mtp00:08
k1l_Finetundra_: ubuntu works with mtp. make sure the phone provides that00:08
Striking7jmadero: Have you tried mounting the iso from the command line to see if that works?00:08
jsheldonWell, upgrading ubuntu didn't make any difference in the skype package.   Still seem stuck with an older version, and it tells me "no upgrades are available" when i click check for upgrades in the program.00:09
k1l_or a usb mount option like the old androids00:09
jmaderojsheldon: that just means the repository isn't updated, just install the .deb from skype website00:09
Finetundra_k1l, it is mounted, however when i try to access the files i get an error00:09
Striking7jmadero: I've never used the program you're talking about but it's possible it could be doing something weird that's messing up the mount. Permissions come to mind - it may have permission to make the directory but not permission to mount00:09
jmaderowhich is now owned by microsoft so you can laugh at the irony every time you use it ;)00:09
jsheldonSomething they did on the server side of skype in the past week seems to have broken multi-user chats.00:09
k1l_Finetundra_: ........00:09
k1l_what error?00:09
jmaderoStriking7: gah I'm an idiot, permissions made it click haha I'm going to try to chmod it first :)00:10
k1l_you had been here often enough to know that the more info you give the better support there is00:10
jsheldonWhich happens to be one of the main things i have to use for work00:10
Finetundra_k1l, "Sorry, could not display all the contents of "Storage": libmtp error:  could not get object handles."00:10
jsheldonIs there any way to suggest that a package in the ubuntu repositories be upgraded?00:10
CajunTechieHey folks, what is the channel for app devs?00:10
Finetundra_k1l, which equates to no files shown00:10

k1l_what ubuntu is it exactly? what phone?00:13
Finetundra_k1l, 14.04. HTC00:13
Finetundra_k1l, Titan II w/ WP7.800:14
jsheldonjmadero: i tried to install the .deb from the skype website and it gave an error message.00:14
jmaderojsheldon: best to paste in pastebin or some similar service what exact errors00:14
jmaderoI remember some dependency issues that I just had to track down a few packages00:14
jmaderoStriking7: for command to mount img mount RaspMain.img /data/temp -t vfat -o loop=/dev/loop00:15
jsheldoni was using the ubuntu software center like it said to on the skype website00:15
jmaderoI get an error saying /dev/loop not found00:15
jsheldonso it wasn't anything too detailed00:15
jmaderojsheldon: I purged skype completely and installed from debian package00:15
blackmatrix_nyhi all...What app do you recommend that would let me have multiple tabs for the terminal ? Thanks00:15
bekksjmadero: BEcause /dev/loop does not exist.00:15
jmaderoand installed from terminal so I saw dependency issues00:15
jsheldonjmadero: it just says "conflicts with installed package skype-bin:i38600:16
bekksIt is a horribly wrong command.00:16
jmaderobekks: found on manpages.ubuntu....might correcting it for me?00:16
jmaderojsheldon: purge skype first00:16
jsheldoni wanted to find a way to upgrade it though00:16
jmaderojsheldon: then install from terminal sudo apt-get dpkg -i *skype*00:16
jsheldonnot erase everything i already had00:16
jmaderojsheldon: it won't erase anything00:16
jmaderoyour configurations are separate from the software00:17
bekksjmadero: mount -o loop disk1.iso /mnt/disk00:17
Striking7jmadero: I never really bother with the /dev/loop part. I usually just say mount -o loop blah.iso mount_point00:17
Striking7jmadero: as root00:17
jsheldoni was surprised there was no PPA for this00:17
jsheldonI hate using .DEB files, they never quite work right00:17
bekks!skype | jsheldon00:18
ubottujsheldon: To install Skype on Ubuntu, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Skype - To record on Skype, check: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SkypeRecordingHowto - Please use open protocols instead if you can, see !Ekiga00:18

jmaderojsheldon: why would you be surprised? Microsoft owns it00:18
jmaderojsheldon: they have no interest in making a ppa00:18
jmaderoI'm shocked it even exists on linux still00:18
Striking7jmadero: sure thing. I know there's a plugin for nautilus that should mount isos00:18
jmaderoI suspect give it a year or so and it'll be gone00:18
jsheldonunfortunately i don't get a say as to what a 600-employee company uses00:18
jmaderosure - just be prepared to have things out of your control00:18
jsheldonif i had my druthers we'd all be running linux and using XMPP for isntant messaging00:18
jmaderoincluding the day that EOL is reached on Linux00:18
jmaderowhich I would bet on00:19
jsheldonwell, i plan to only be at this job another year00:19
jmaderolol fair enough00:19
jmadero(I use skype also btw)00:19
jmaderonever found a reasonable alternative in open source world00:19
jsheldonif anything, though, isn't linux only becoming more popular?00:19
jsheldonnot less so?00:19
jmaderofanboys (including myself) would like to think so00:19
jmaderobut I doubt it00:19
jmaderoin the grand scheme of things00:19
jmaderogoing from 1% to 1.05% isn't going to do much00:20
bekksjmadero: the popularity is not a support issue ;)00:20
blackmatrix_nylinux is taking over...hide your wife, hide your kids00:20
jmaderoand on our side we can say "that's a 5% increase!"00:20
jmaderobekks: I disagree actually - I think support is a major thing missing00:20
jmaderoworking with LibreOffice has proven that to me00:20
blackmatrix_nymy company just went from IBM AIX to Redhat Linux00:20
jmaderobut we're all free to have different opinions00:20
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!00:20
bekksjmadero: In here, you are in an Ubuntu support channel. Not in a statistics / pool fan channel ;)00:21
* jsheldon giggles00:21
bazhangthis channel is strictly ubuntu support, lets return to that00:21
jmadero...no clue what that means, but that's fine00:21
blackmatrix_nyyea lets talk ubuntu...can you please tell me a nice terminal client for ubuntu that would let me have all terminals as tabs...my fingers are going to die from alt-tab00:21
bekksblackmatrix_ny: terminal, e.g.00:22
jsheldonjmadero: i think they're saying that we're getting too much into the mathematics and veering off the topic of ubuntu.00:22
k1l_Finetundra_: tried gmtp?00:24
Finetundra_k1l, yep00:24
k1l_Finetundra_: and again: seems like you need to remove the unlock pattern, so its disabled00:24
TinkerladAny ideas on fixing a BADSIG error whilst running apt-get update? Ive tried pretty well everything and I still get it...00:24
Striking7jsheldon: when Microsoft was abandoning MSN for Skype I got my company of 100ish to  switch over to a local XMPP server00:24
Striking7It creeped them out that their data could be so easily at the mercy of an outside force that doesn't give a flying crap about their privacy or needs00:25
Striking7So it was an easy sell at the time :)00:25
blackmatrix_nybekks, I use the gnome terminal and it doesn't list all my open terminals as tabs00:25
bekksTinkerlad: Pastebin the full output please, so we are able to help you instead answering a poll :)00:26
jmaderoyou guys are awesome - my Pi is back to life thanks to that mount00:26
bekksblackmatrix_ny: Which is user fail, actually, since you did not create all terms as tabsm but as separate windows.00:26
Finetundra_k1l, well, that sorta worked. was hoping to get a bit more than just media. guess i should be greatful though. thanks man.00:26
jmaderohad lost all my scripts (which were all in the image file that I didn't want to have to do more than mount and then walk away)00:26
Tinkerladbekks, I cant get a pastebin as I cant install openssh-server to use putty? Ill get a photo. one sec00:27
bekksjmadero: Lost scripts mean they had no value, since there where no backups ;)00:27
* Striking7 high fives jmadero00:27
jmaderolol the backup was the image00:27
jmaderoduh ;)00:27
jsheldon_okay, well, the upgrade to -1 didn't make any difference00:28
jsheldon_still having the same trouble00:28
jsheldon_i guess it's time to report the problem to microsoft00:28
* jsheldon_ sighs00:28
jmaderogood luck getting no where with that (no offense, but that is a doomed effort)00:28
jmaderoI ONCE reported a issue with Access to MS00:28
bekksjmadero: Then the source was still intact so you did not need tha backup. If not, your backup stragety is failing hard.00:28
blackmatrix_nybekks, how do you create as tabsm ?00:28
jmaderoone single time - they basically were like "this will never be fixed"00:28
bekksblackmatrix_ny: Whats a "tabsm"?00:28
jsheldon_hey, at least with no group chats it will be nice and quiet during the workday ;)00:28
jsheldon_i will enjoy my peace and quiet :D00:28
jmaderobekks: the backup was done last week but I had a separate issue on the pi00:28
Striking7jmadero: I'm going to be making a small distro that's intended to set up an automated tor node soon. Would you be so kind as to give me your IM info so you can test it on your pi when I get it ready?00:29
jmaderoso I started from scratch but needed those scripts00:29
jsheldon_jmadero: thanks for the help. :)00:29
bekksjmadero: See above :)00:29
jmaderoit was crazy, my nfs started acting up (out of nowhere, literally....)00:29
blackmatrix_nybekks, you mentioned tabsm " Which is user fail, actually, since you did not create all terms as tabsm but as separate windows. since you did not create all terms as tabsm but as separate windows."00:29
jmaderoStriking7: you can find me in #libreoffice-qa any time ;) (probably off topic again so I'll not go down that path beyond saying that)00:30
bekksblackmatrix_ny: What does "tabsm" mean?00:30
Bashing-omTinkerlad: In tough cases, might try -> sudo apt-key update <-, see if that gives any additional hints .00:30
bekksblackmatrix_ny: From what you are writing, I am forced to think that "tabsm" are different from "tabs"?00:30
blackmatrix_nybekks, I'm confused...So it's possible to have multiple tabs on gnome terminal ?00:31
bekksblackmatrix_ny: Yes.00:31
Tinkerladbekks, imgur.com/tv82JwX00:31
blackmatrix_nybekks, Can you please tell me how ?00:31

k1l_blackmatrix_ny: or just see in the menu of that program00:36
OerHeksTinkerlad, i think your keys are oke, but lists are damaged,  try:  sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/* && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade00:36
TinkerladOerHeks, Same result00:37
OerHeksTinkerlad, then report a bug about that server, i guess :-(00:38

TinkerladBashing-om, I have, it didnt seem to change anything with the keys...00:39
Guest14725Someone's help please?00:40
jmaderoGuest14725: ...please state your problem00:41
jmaderooh sorry it's up there, one moment00:41
Striking7Guest14725: You haven't given us much info to go off of here. What only imported 16 tracks? From what?00:41
jmaderoplease instead be patient ;)00:41
jmaderoindeed, what types of files00:41
jmaderowhat software importing into00:41
Guest14725Rhytmbox only imported 16 tracks.00:41
Guest14725From my Music folder.00:42
Striking7From what? An iPod? Another machine?00:42
Striking7Aha. K00:42
jmaderohm - I don't use rhythmbox sorry00:42
Guest14725And, I have over 1200 tracks.00:42
jmaderoclementine for me :)00:42
TinkerladOerHeks, Its the au mirror. Is there an easy way I can change it or do I have to manually edit the sources00:42
Striking7Guest14725: It could be that your music is in a format Rhythmbox doesn't have a plugin for00:42
Striking7Not a problem. We can just install the right codec00:42
Guest14725They're in mp3s, and some are in wma00:42
jmaderoGuest14725: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras00:43
jmaderoprobably get everything you need00:43
Guest14725I already have that installed00:43
Bashing-omTinkerlad: Maybe try as : gpg --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv 40976EAF437D05B5 , gpg --export --armor 40976EAF437D05B5 | sudo apt-key add - ... Which adds the key to apt trusted keys.00:43
Guest14725But, I can try restarting00:43
jmaderothat won't help00:43
Striking7Guest14725: can you see anything different about the 16 tracks that did import?00:43
OerHeksTinkerlad, sure, softwarecenter > edit > sources, you'll find a fastest mirror/choose your own mirror there00:43
Striking7Are they also Mp3's? Are they in a different directory?00:43
Guest14725The 16 tracks are in .wav and .ogg00:44
Striking7Also make sure that you're looking at the right view within Rhythmbox00:44
jmaderoyup it's definitely codec then....weird ubuntu-restricted-extras should have delt with that00:44
Striking7Aha. So it could be that you don't have the mp3 codec installed.00:44
Striking7Did you shut rhythmbox down and restart it?00:44
Striking7You won't need to restart your computer, just that program possibly00:44
Striking7not sure that is necessary, but it's worth a shot00:45
Guest14725Mhm, it's shut down, and I restarted it00:45
jmaderopossibly purging restricted-extras and then reinstalling also...00:45
Striking7K. Tryinstalling libgstreamer-plugins-bad00:45
Striking7and gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly00:46
Striking7gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly too00:46
Guest14725I just tried that via Terminal, and it says it can't locate it, the libgstreamer00:46
Striking7can't hurt00:46
Striking7pop open synaptic and check in there.00:46
Striking7sometimes a simple typo can mess it up when you're trying to install packages from the terminal00:47

uhelpOMG  alt-tab allows me to switch between applications -- until I use windows-d to view the desktop -- then I cannot switch between the already open applications with alt-tab BUT I can create more applications and switch between them -- until I use windows-d again in which case those are lost too.  What is going on here?01:59

bubbasaurespapachan, We would know no more than you can discover, not a real popular desktop in ubuntu, here anyway.02:00

bubbasauresTheNet, Show it to the #ubuntu-ops02:03
zenoliBoth downloaded via torrent.02:03
daftykinszenoli: ok i don't think expert install is what you're after, just "install" with server should give the text mode installer.02:04
zenoliAt the very start of the boot, the image reports "missing parameter in a configuration file: Keyword: path" and "gfxboot.c32: not a COM32R image"02:04
zenolidaftykins: Indeed. Only doing the expert install so I could figure out exactly where the install was failing.02:04
zenoliSetting the USB mass store device to register as a floppy drive doesn't work, can't even get the USB to boot.02:05
daftykinsi think your images or (most likely) your flash drive makings have failed02:05
zenolidaftykins: Both of them? In exactly the same way?02:05
zenoliI did use usb-creator-gtk instead of the usual dd.02:06
daftykinszenoli: i highly doubt they're both doing the same funky thing, though i don't even recall an 'expert mode' on desktop ISOs02:06

zenolidaftykins: Headless home server, going to mostly be used for media and act as an SSH bounce server. I was hoping to avoid majorly old software versions relative to my desktop.02:10
frank_oHi! Can someone help me install the latest version of ffmpeg on Ubuntu 13.03?02:11
papachanbubbasaures which desktop recommend you? i love cinnamon becasue its light02:11
uhelpIs there some pay-support for ubuntu that won't give me answers like "reinstall"?02:11
Bashing-omangel: lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga ; will do that nicely.02:11
daftykinszenoli: thing is you'll be stuck in upgrade land though ;)02:11
daftykinsangel: open the terminal and run "lspci"02:12
daftykinsangel: paste it to http://paste.ubuntu.com to share it with us02:12
angelBashing-om, daftykins http://pastie.org/9757221 thanks. now how do i install the drivers?02:12
zenolidaftykins: My old server that just died was running Debian. I suppose that would be where I would go if I really wanted stable versions.02:12
bubbasaurespapachan, I have checked out cinnamon, seems nice, really use what you like. Here we are users like you so we don't have any release info in general that is an extra.02:13
zenoliUpgrading the server is a heck of a lot less annoying than upgrading the desktop.02:13
daftykinsangel: there are none available for you as your hardware is too old02:14
zenoliA friend is trying to persuade me to go back to Gentoo...deb-based upgrades are soothing by comparison.02:14
bubbasaurespapachan, There is a ppa for cinnamon, but we don't have support here for ppa's..3rd party in general is all.02:14
angeldaftykins, ohhh02:14
daftykinszenoli: fair enough, i personally find non-LTS a mistake :)02:15
uhelpOK.  I didn't fix the problem but at least I won't lose any work.  The following brings all the windows to the front so that I can close them "for w in `wmctrl -l | cut -d' ' -f1`; do wmctrl -i -a $w ; done"  I still need to know how to diagnose alt-tab "losing" windows when I use super-d to access the Desktop02:16
papachanbubbasaures but my problem is: after upgrading to 14.04.1 i have no more ppa available for cinammon02:16
papachanit have removed all my cinnamon core02:16
zenolidaftykins: You're not wrong.02:16
Bashing-omangel: daftykins :: checking as from this: http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/catalog/component/pci/1002%3A9616/ . that card does (did ?) have certification.02:16
uhelpWhere do I look to figure out what is going wrong with the window switcher?  (this is 14.04)02:16
uhelpSorry... 14.04.1 LTS if it matters.02:17
angelBashing-om, thanks but what does that mean?02:17
daftykinsBashing-om: anything Radeon 4xxx and below got switched to legacy status, so no fglrx with anything newer than 12.04.102:17
bubbasaurespapachan, Not supported here but you have this, I have not looked at what version is in this ppa or the ubuntu repos is all. https://launchpad.net/~gwendal-lebihan-dev/+archive/ubuntu/cinnamon-nightly02:17
daftykinsangel: it doesn't change anything unfortunately, your onboard graphics will be using the open source driver and that's the only choice02:18
angeldaftykins, ok how do i install that driver?02:18
bubbasaurespapachan, Yeah cinnamon is not supported from the ubuntu repos in Trusty, it's in utopic however.02:19
daftykinsangel: it already will be using it.02:19
Guest90282hi all02:19
angeldaftykins, i have a very poor resolution just 1024px. then it will stay that way?02:19
daftykinsangel: possibly. what version do you have installed?02:20
bubbasaurespapachan, I had forgotten it was not in the 14.04 release, it has appeared and disappeared at time due to stability is all.02:20
angeldaftykins, version of what?02:20
papachanbubbasaures, oh thank you so much, you give a me great information02:20
daftykinsangel: ubuntu02:20
Bashing-omdaftykins: Yeah // but this card " Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATIRS780L [Radeon 3000]" --  not an HDxX series -- card -> http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/catalog/category/VIDEO/ . also shows it as cerified. I do welcome a correction to my thinking.02:21
bubbasaurespapachan, No problem, I was trying to give you what would help. ;)02:21

cornellUbuntu One is no longer.  How do I get Ubuntu One "off" of my computer?02:22
bubbasaurescornell, You can just have it off, it has dependencies I would just leave it.02:22

Bashing-omdaftykins: angel ::You are correct, per other sources also, that card is legacy, and no longer has proprietary driver support . End of story .02:25
daftykinsah ok still supported02:25
daftykinsBashing-om: ty for confirming :) i hadn't remembered the 'HD' prefix so it was definitely worth checking02:26
bubbasaurescornell, I would just turn it off in startup applications.02:27
bubbasauresyou might have to populate that list, if so I have a command02:27

cornellbubbasaures: I don't have it in Applications / System Tools / Preferences / Startup Applications02:28
daftykinsangel: ah you have "nomodeset" in your boot parameters. did you need that to boot successfully to even install?02:29
daftykinsBashing-om: not at all - you are most welcome :)02:29
bubbasaurescornell, Type it in the dash02:29
cornellSorry, bubbasaures, I don't understand "Type it in the dash"02:30
angeldaftykins, no idea, i just installed it, i don't remember altering any param.02:30
daftykinsbubbasaures: i don't think cornell is using unity02:30
daftykinsangel: ok follow this guide to see if 14.04 boots without nomodeset02:30
cornellCorrect daftykins.02:31
daftykins!nomodeset | angel try the opposite of this (removing it)02:31
ubottuangel try the opposite of this (removing it): A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter02:31
bubbasaurescornell, THe unity desktop search top button left panel, or hit the windows key to bring it up.02:31
cornellI'm not using the Unity desktop, bubbasaures02:31
bubbasauresdaftykins, I think you're right but just playing along till we get there.02:31
daftykinsthe clue before was the "applications" menu ;)02:32
bubbasaurescornell, Well maybe we need to know what you are using ehh.02:32
daftykinsmust be ol' unity-2d or whatever the thing is that gives the old gnome2x desktop02:32
cornellgnome, I think 2.02:32
bubbasauresdaftykins, I saw it but one never knows here, you know with all the "expert modes".02:32
daftykins*nod* :)02:33
bubbasaurescornell, You on the fallback gnome desktop?02:33
angeldaftykins, /etc/default/grub doesn't contain that param so i can't remove it02:35
cornellI don't always know which versions, or how to find them... in synaptic, I have gnome-desktop3-data02:36
cornellIs that, is there a, gnome 3?02:36
bubbasaurescornell, There is no supported gnome 2 desktop, mate might be, not sure it's a fork. Must be the fallback, however there should be a startup applications in the app menu if this is ubuntu.02:36
daftykinsangel: i wouldn't do it by file, i would do it by one-time menu boot. so hold left shift at boot time, go to advanced options then highlight the newest kernel without "rescue" beside it, then press 'e' on it to edit and delete 'nomodeset'02:38
cornellbubbasaures: there is: Applications / System Tools / Preferences / Startup Applications.  And it doesn't list Ubuntu One.  It's got Dropbox, Psensor and Visual Assistance.02:38
daftykinsangel: if it doesn't boot successfully, likely you're out of luck and that hardware is just too old with that onboard graphics. you'd need to get a supported graphics card in there02:38
angelok let me try02:39
bubbasaurescornell, Run this command and see if the list is populated. sudo sed -i 's/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/g' /etc/xdg/autostart/*.desktop02:39
Bashing-ombubbasaures: Recon -> apt-cache policy ubuntu-desktop <- would relate the DE in use here for cornell ??02:40
cornellbubbasaures: other than asking for password, no response02:40
bubbasaurescornell, Did you close the app than open it again.02:41
cornellWhich application bubbasaures?02:41
acmehandleHow do I do an installed packages template dump?02:41
bubbasaurescornell, startup applications02:42
cornellThere's a bunch of stuff in it now.02:42
acmehandlefrom the command line02:42
cornellIncluding Ubuntu One :-)02:42
bubbasaurescornell, Yep, in 12.04 that was hidden, what was there were the 3rd party apps you added and their startup cammand set by them.02:43
cornellSo it seems, bubbasaures.  That command changed the population of the Startup Applications.  While it was open.  It just wasn't on top, so I didn't notice it before.02:44
cornellSo I just remove it?02:44
sophocleshello all02:44
reisio'lo soph02:44
bubbasaurescornell, I thought it did, just wasn't sure.02:44
sophoclesi just heard SR person arrested on NPR02:44
bubbasaurescornell, No untick the check box02:45
cornellAh... so it's still there, just not launched, cool.  Thanks bubbasaures02:45
bubbasaurescornell, Yeah, you have it, not sure how to kill it now but it should not start on a restart.02:46
Bashing-omacmehandle: maybe like: dpkg --get-selections will dump a list of all packages you have installed, so you can use dpkg --set-selections to reinstall them all later. ??02:46
cornellAh, the sed changed NoDisplay from true to false.  So from now on, the Startup Applications will show all.  Cool.02:46
bubbasauresit's all in the .config heh02:47
acmehandleYes, looks good.  Thank you02:47
cornellI've been using Linux since Mandriva was called Mandrake.  Unfortunately, I don't get to spend enough time in the nitty-gritty to learn, and keep, enough02:47
Bashing-omacmehandle: Might want to keep a file of the packages or for use of -> dpkg --get-selections > ~/my-packages <- .02:50

johnmsg /hello03:53
GumaI was wondering if any one has ised how to resize root partition on first boot after dd. I created a script that I need to test but not sure how to run it before root / is mounted. What is the best way doing it?03:54
john exit03:58
rypervencheGuma: Using LVM? Is / the last partition on the drive? Can you run "fdisk -l" for us?03:59
Gumarypervenche. No lvm03:59
Gumaone sec03:59
rypervencheGuma: Also, are you trying to expand or shrink?04:00
Gumarypervenche /dev/mmcblk0p2 is last partition. ext3 for root on SD Card04:00
rypervencheGuma: What kind of device is this?04:01
Gumaexpand to remining free space. Trying to make small *.img so can be dd to what ever card. Then on first boot it will resize to use entire. So youser does not have to do this.04:02
GumaThis is ARM board with uSD Card04:02
Gumarypervenche : imx6qsabrelite04:03
rypervencheGuma: So normally you would rewrite your partition table to have the second partition go to the end of the SD card, then reboot (if running live), then run resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p204:03
rypervencheGuma: And to rewrite your partition table, you'll need to delete the p2 partition, then recreate it using the SAME beginning sector and then the last available sector.04:03
GumaThat is what I am trying to do. I created a script that removes itself on after successful run. Not I need to place it on SD card and dd again from sd card to img file. So not when I dd this file back to any sd card on first boot this script will auto run and resize then remove itself so on next reboot it will not be run.04:06
Gumarypervenche I think there was something like runonce file04:07
rypervencheGuma: Well, it would need to run, then run a second time once the thing is booted back up.04:07
ninguI'm running Ubuntu on a late 2008 macbook. wifi is BCM4322. it supports 5GHz wifi afaik, but I haven't been able to successfully connect to my 5 GHz network. any idea why?04:07

ninguit might be a range issue, not sure... but my newer mac connects to the 5GHz network fine in the same location.04:08
daftykinsningu: broadcom are terrible under Linux, their driver likely only supports the 2.4GHz04:09
ninguah, ok04:09
Gumarypervenche. Well I was thinking that I will need to do reboot between  fdisk and resize2fs . I was not sure if I could do this in single shot.04:09
ningudaftykins: too bad. I like running Ubuntu on this. I'll survive, though.04:09
rypervencheGuma: Not unless you do it from a live session.04:09
VelhoP4I have my keyboard to english, but my keyboard ir european. how can I change the settings?04:10
Gumarypervenche I did read that raspberry pi image file does such trick. So it is possible if others are doing it. Would you agree?04:11

LandeskogI seemed to have messed up unity menu on start up I'm just getting the blank wallpaper no menus and ctrl alt t not opening terminal kinda stuck04:12

ubottuLTS means Long Term Support.

The latest LTS version of Ubuntu is !Trusty (Trusty Tahr 14.04)05:28

akiseate a new one during installation? and how can i have access to system bios after the installation? i read a lot of documantation but i am still confused. i am running 14.04 on 3 older machines and is the 1st time i try to install it on a newer one. any help pls?05:35

* lotuspsychje likes wiping a win8 uefi machine to ubuntu :p05:42
akislotuspsychje: that's good news! you mean it will hunde my laptop the way it does it on my older machines. simply a root and a home dir on a single partition (no swap activated)? and how can i access the notebook's bios? on older machines usually presses F10 OR F2 or del. i dont see any option for that now. only through win8.1.05:43
lotuspsychjeakis: what brand is your laptop?05:44
akis HEWLETT PACKARD 14-r107nv N2840/4GB/1TB - (K5E35EA)05:44

akislotuspsychje: on that moment with win8.1 still on the system esc and f10 dont work. after ubuntu installation will work?05:46
lotuspsychjeakis: like bubbasaures said, bios is before the Os ubuntu wont change the hotkeys05:47
bubbasauresakis, You have to shut windows down not use the hybrid sleep/hibernate05:47
bubbasauresYour manual should say05:48
lotuspsychjeakis: first things first, find your way into bios/uefi05:48
lotuspsychjeakis: then change uefi to legacy bios and disable secreboot05:48
akislotuspsychje: yea. i read that. full shut down and then restart from usb. should i choose erase everything and proceed? all the rest will be done from ubuntu installation?05:49
lotuspsychjeakis: if you want ubuntu on full hd, yes install will do that05:49
akislotuspsychje: and is for sure that everything of win8 will absolutely gone, isnt it?05:50

lotuspsychjeMrSavage: what grafix card chip?05:53
MrSavageamd r9 200 series05:54
lotuspsychjeMrSavage: ubuntu 14.04?05:54
MrSavagei'm not sure if it's because of some uefi bios setting05:54
MrSavagelotuspsychje: yes05:54
lotuspsychjeMrSavage: what does prompt say?05:54
MrSavagelotuspsychje: it's just a graphical promp that asks for a username or password05:55
lotuspsychjethats real odd05:55
MrSavageis it a bios settings?05:55
xmetalsounds like (?? my terminology) its loggin OUT of Live mode05:55
lotuspsychjeyeah sounds like ubuntu prompt asking user/pass05:56
xmetalin the command line05:56
MrSavagei have no idea what's going on :(05:56
lotuspsychjeMrSavage: did you try livemode instead of install?05:56
MrSavageyou mean the try option?05:57
xmetali think lotus may have been onto something ... if possible try to make the usb with a different method (different program or the dd command) ... sometimes that may (** may ) help05:57
MrSavagelotuspsychje: should i select uefi or the non-uefi from my boot menu?05:57
xmetalsometimes with certain distro's new releases certain methods work, others dont05:57
xmetal(my experience)05:58
lotuspsychjeMrSavage: if you want ubuntu on your machine, disable secureboot and switch to legacy bios05:58
MrSavagelotuspsychje: but then i can't have an sdd for windows?05:58
MrSavagei'm guessing05:58
lotuspsychjeMrSavage: you want dualboot?05:58
SavKobaniin group "root" is it safe to put my administor user?05:59
SavKobanii guess not, huh05:59
MrSavagelotuspsychje: i'm guessing that's only needed if you partition?05:59
MrSavagelotuspsychje: i'm in try mode and i see a prompt for a username05:59
akislotuspsychje: i change the boot option to legacy one and secure boot is now disabled. now i can access bios through f10. so now after manufacturer restoration backup i can proceed with my ubuntu installation through usb stick device. isnt it? do i have to pay any other attention before that or during installation beyond the common things?05:59
lotuspsychjeMrSavage: say first what you want, dualboot or singleboot?05:59
MrSavagei want to have an sdd for ubuntu and another sdd for windows06:00

yellabs-r2i have got a flash drive ( thinclient ) of 1 gig, what would be a way to get linux with desktop running on this kind of machine ?07:37
ubottuLTSP is the Linux Terminal Server Project, which adds thin-client support to Linux servers. See chapter 3 of the !edubuntuhandbook, http://www.ltsp.org and/or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_Terminal_Server_Project07:37
yellabs-r2could i use ubuntu minimal , and then add an desktop to that ?07:38
cfhowlettyellabs-r2, yes you can07:38
MrSavagealright guys07:38
ronnelSo I have a problem with Microsoft .NET 40. I installed it with the command "bash winetricks dotnet40 corefonts". It was successful but the problem is the software I'm trying to run says that I have to install .NET 4.0.30319. Help!07:38
MrSavagewhy does install take me to the live cd?07:38
MrSavageI'm running this ubuntu USB as a uefi07:38

anselanMrSavage, I have had lots of experience working around UEFI issues - what problem are you having?07:41
MrSavageanselan: Everytime i click install, it takes me to the live CD07:41
ronnelThe game I was trying to run is a simple game (Unblock). Hmm, maybe I'll try the reading the appdb manual again.07:42
partakeionstall coreboot07:42
solsTiCe you mean after you complete the instlalation ? remove the cd from the tray ?07:42
anselan@MrSavage, this happens after an installation, or you don't actually even get to that point?07:43
MrSavageanselan: i click install from my choice of "try it", "install", "check for errors"07:43
partakeyou need to remove the cd before booting ti the installed system07:43
MrSavageit doesn't install...07:43
anselanMrSavage: what is your hardware?07:44
MrSavagethere's no install prompt after clicking install07:44
MrSavageanselan: GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-D3H, intel it-4670k, amd r9 200 series07:44
anselanMrSavage: and you're sure it supports UEFI?07:45
MrSavageI see it in the bios07:45
MrSavagei can click and stuff in my "bios"07:45
anselanMrSavage: maybe try to disable UEFI, and use "legacy boot" (or whatever your BIOS calls it) instead. This helped me when struggling to install Ubuntu on an Intel NUC07:46
MrSavageintel NUC?07:46
yellabs-r2what desktop uses the smallest hard drive footprint ?07:46
anselanMrSavage: it's a small form-factor PC07:46
MrSavageanselan: i tried making everything legacy, but when i would run off the USB. It would show me the uefi warning logo, then do the SAME THING WHERE I GO INTO LIVE CD AFTER CLICKING INSTALL07:46
cfhowlett!lubuntu | yellabs-r2,07:46
ubottuyellabs-r2,: 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.07:46

mdogelubuntu is awesome - </shameless plug>07:49
partakei dont have UEFI BIOS07:49
anselanI didn't like Lubuntu very much. Way too ugly07:49
anselanbut I admit it was lightweight07:49
MrSavageanselan: any ideas?07:50
anselanfor lightweight installation systems (I make interactive installations) I prefer to install full Ubuntu and then use OpenBox for the desktop environment and run only the things I need07:50
yellabs-r2ok thanks for the info , guess we have to go for ltsp07:50
anselanMrSavage: what exactly does the UEFI "warning logo" say?07:50

anselanMrSavage: I also get that screen when I install on my NUCs, but it doesn't actually cause me any trouble. After a second or two, it goes to the normal installer and then no problems from then on07:51
MrSavageanselan: mine goes into a live CD07:51
partakewhy are people working on coreboot?07:52
partakeis it a fedora thing?07:52
MrSavageanselan: is try it supposed to bring you into a GUI with a username login?07:52
anselanMrSavage: no, usually after that it goes straight to the normal installer07:53
MrSavagealso i'm trying legacy again right now07:54
anselanMrSavage: is it possible that your Hard Drive is not being detected?07:54
MrSavageI have 4 HDDs, and 1 SDD07:54
MrSavageand the installer brought me into a gui login on my 2nd monitor instead of the primary07:54
MrSavagewell selecting the install option brought me there07:55
ksinkarhello people. I have followed instructions here http://www.maketecheasier.com/customize-the-gdm-sessions-list/ but inspite of that I am not seeing the changes in my sessions list07:56
anselanMrSavage: I'm not sure, but I'm wondering if maybe the installer sees no suitable HDDs to install to, so assumes you can "only" run in Live Mode07:56
MrSavageanselan: I tried disconnecting my 2nd monitor and it's a black screen on my only monitor now07:57
MrSavagewhen i click install07:57
MrSavagelike backlight isn't coming on07:58
MrSavagewell it's just a black screen07:58
UbUntUToUchLoverCan I talk about Ubuntu Touch here, or is that topic reserved for the ubuntu-touch channel only?07:59

ubottuUbUntUToUchLover: Information about the Ubuntu Touch platform for Phone and Tablet is available here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch . Support and discussion in #ubuntu-touch08:00
UbUntUToUchLoverI knew that. I was just wondering if I can talk about it here. I'm not getting much help from the ubuntu-touch channel.08:01

UbUntUToUchLoverSomebody named nhaines was helping me, but he's a little preoccupied with a book.08:03
anselanMrSavage: I'm afraid I can't help you there... I think these types of things are very specific to different hardware. For example, with my NUC apparently a future BIOS update is going to fix the troubles with Ubuntu installation08:04

cfhowlettUbUntUToUchLover, I might add: Nook has not made what you're attempting easy.  you might be better off to take a less hacky and more sane approach: purchase a refurbished and supported device, e.g. Nexus 7?08:14
UbUntUToUchLovercfhowlett. I'm sorry if I implied that I contacted wesnoth, because I don't think I did. I talked to somebody under the #wesnoth channel, but they have no idea about it. As for getting a different tablet, I really don't see a reason to. I currently am using Cyanogenmod on my Nook.08:16
cfhowlettUbUntUToUchLover, noted.  All I can do is wish you luck and hope you document your future success.08:17
UbUntUToUchLoverYes, I agree that Barnes & Noble did not make it easy to install Ubuntu Touch; I had to install Cyanogenmod first.08:18

ankitaokey!! no problem guys..I will find it08:41
trijntje_ankita: its no use to isntall nvidia drivers since ubuntu thinks you dont have an nvidia card in your laptop08:42
ankitamy video is lagging08:43
trijntje_I know that, but ubuntu thinks your pc does not have an nvidia card, so it wont use it even if you install it. First you have to figure out why lspci doesnt show it08:43
cfhowlettankita, you could also try the intel drivers.  if those work ...08:44
ankitahow can i do that ?08:44
cfhowlettankita, https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads08:44

ubottuakis,: UEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS.

akiscfhowlett: yea ok. i read already this documentation: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI. but i dont understand if this is needed if someone wants to keep win8.1 alongside of ubuntu. i am little confused. i dont need win. only a clen installation of xubuntu and to be able to handle my bios (already turn it to legacy option).08:53
cfhowlettakis, I'm hesitant to advise as I've not yet installed on an EFI machine ... ask in the channel.  someone will advise.08:54
akiscfhowlett: that's my question too as i have never installed on an EFi machine too. but as far as i read it's not a problem if the ubuntu is the only OS on the machnine. but i am not absolutely sutre for that.08:56

mirko_ok...i want to learn how to create ipk files and, out of this, packages...i use a enigma2 dreambox...and i want to create my own feed...therefore i need to build an ipk file... and of course a Packages.gz10:19
mirko_i've read a lot of stuff... and everywhere i read that the easiest way to do this is with a linux system...like ubuntu or debian...so yesterday i installed ubuntu first time :-)10:20
mirko_is there someone in here who has a dreambox and knows what i am talking about?10:20
ObrienDavewhat's an ipk file?10:21
jurislavipk is a sw package for wrt-like OS on routers..10:21
jurislavcheck ipkg on wiki10:21
jurislavif i am not mistaken :)10:22
mirko_Ipk is file extension for most the enigma2 plugins files and composed of compressed data of the plugin distributed in different folders for automatic installation10:22
mirko_i checked ipkg on wiki10:22
mirko_and i installed ipkg-dev on my ubuntu system10:22

I unistalled the 1st one using ubuntu software center but i saw in history that although were installed 14 files they unistalled only 13 files. (http://pbrd.co/1yf2XzR & http://pbrd.co/1yf39Px). How can i uninstall the file that was not uninstalled? how can i be sure that every relevant file is already unistalled?12:36

c0rnelis there a tool to convert rpm/s to .debs?12:50
ikoniac0rnel: it's not something you should be doing12:51
cfhowlettc0rnel, "alien" command can do that but you would find it much less painful to go for native .debs12:51
ObrienDavec0rnel, yes there is. no, you don't really want to do that12:51

akisikonia: autoclean doesnt include this package. i gave apt-get remove libpostproc52 but the system wants to remove gnome-mplayer & mplayer2 which are the packages i need to run. maybe bpostproc52 is also useful for gnome mplayer as it is for gnome-media-player?12:56

mietekIs there a tool which, given a name such as libpng, would output the name of the right package to install, such as libpng12-dev on Ubuntu 14.04?13:01
ikoniamietek that doesn't make sense13:01
akisjpds: where should i search? in /.local or in /.config?13:01

jpdsmietek: Bash's tab-completation ?13:01
ikoniamietek: you can use apt-file to look at specific files13:01
mietekikonia: I know about apt-file, but searching for libfoo.a does not give unambiguous results.13:01
ikoniamietek: use the full path13:02
akisiggymydog: didi you try using ethernet?13:02
jpdsakis: That entirely depends on the how the software is coded to do things.13:02

iggymydogakis: how ever i had to go to my nebors house to use it because i dont have a chord here13:02
ikoniamietek: eg apt-file search test.a13:02
mietekikonia: go ahead and search for libstdc++.a13:03
buyoancingjpds: the aa-status output is at http://pastebin.com/wy3K8Wta, i removed 2000 lines with "null-xxx"13:03
ikoniamietek: that doesn't look like a file13:03
ikoniamietek: normally you see a version, but I can't check it onthe machine I'm on13:03
jpdsbuyoancing: Ah, hmm.13:04
mietekikonia: you are thinking about dynamic libraries, which are usually named *.so13:04
akisiggymydog: so, you cannot just connect wirelessly?13:04
iggymydogakis: correst13:04
ikoniamietek: the apt-file command should still search though13:04
buyoancingjpds: looking at "ps", I see tasks called "dovecot/imap-login"  and also "dovecot/auth"13:04
khaaaaan12Can someone help me out with chromeos-apk and dvd::rip?13:04
mietekikonia: yes, but as I said, it doesn't give unambiguous output.13:04
mietekI'm asking if anyone knows a better tool than apt-file.13:04
buyoancingjpds: but no "dovecot-auth"13:04
ikoniamietek what does it actually give you13:04
ikoniamietek: pastebin the output, lets have a look13:04
akisiggymydog: what kind of adaptor you are using to conncet wirelessly?13:05
mietekThere are many packages which contain libstdc++.a, and I'm wondering about a general solution.13:05
mietekI don't have a problem installing this file specifically.13:05

mietekjpds: sure, I know I can do that.  But as you see, it's not automatic.13:13
mietekThere are packaging systems which let users declare just the short library names, and give no help in installing the actual libraries.13:14
mietekI'm working on adding automation to such a system, and just trying to find out if anyone has done the work before.13:14
jpdsmietek: You shouldn't be installing libraries, you should be installing apps which pull in those libraries.13:14

ubottuTo just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin.

k1lazizLIGHT: wait /opt/14:54
EriC^^_raven_: df -h pastebinit it14:54
k1lazizLIGHT: so you mix PPA and manual install in /opt/?14:54
azizLIGHTso dpkg is falsely listing pacakges as installed...14:54
k1lthat sounds like a whole mess now14:54
mdogeubottu: very nice14:54
afidegnumhi, ubuntu immediately log me out when I I tried to login even thouh the password is correct. what's the cause and how can i fix it ?14:54
morsnowskiazizLIGHT: have you tried apt-get purge <package>14:54
mdogesomsip: thx14:55
azizLIGHTk1l: no, this is all ppa14:55
somsipmdoge: np14:55
azizLIGHTk1l: im trying to reinstall the same packages i purged, from the same ppa14:55
k1lazizLIGHT: what are you doing there at all? /opt/ is not where system packages install to14:55
azizLIGHTk1l: im trying to install qt5.3.x for a program that needs it. ubuntu is stuck on 5.2.1 on 14.04 so i resorted to ppa. it worked for the program and no complaints. i got an update and got confused thinking that 14.04 actually got legit 5.3 so i purged the ppa then i realized by checking it was actually the ppa's update not 14.04 . so now im trying to reinstall the ppa and its pacakges14:57
_raven_additional info: root is encrypted. any cache what lasts forever?14:57
azizLIGHTbut dpkg thinks that its still there for whatever reason14:57
azizLIGHTthe ppa packages14:58

DualBootMePleaseI am having a *lot* of problems getting dual boot set up14:58
DualBootMePleasemy current problem is, via windowsxp LiLi, lili tells me the following file is not a supported linux version: ubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso  ... why is it saying that?14:59
cfhowlettDualBootMePlease, the journey is half the fun.14:59
azizLIGHTmorsnowski: it only lists qt53base as pacakge to be removed when i do sudo apt-get purge qt53base14:59
DualBootMePleaseit most certainly is not. :(14:59
azizLIGHTk1l: ive rebooted and tried many things since then. not sure what to show you14:59

k1lazizLIGHT: then install the packages you need manually.15:00
DualBootMePleaseit said it would try and use the settings for Ubuntu 14.10, but I have already had so many freaking problems with this installation i would like not to have more right out of the gate.15:00
azizLIGHTi think i have to prge the qt53 packages manually, then try a reinstall15:01
k1lazizLIGHT: you talk a lot about messing with PPAs and stuff in /opt/ so i guess that packages are marked manually installed15:01
afidegnumany insight?15:01
morsnowskiazizLIGHT: is the ppa in your sources file? Have you done a apt-get update? what error message do you get when your try to install it15:01
akishi all. i clean installed xubuntu 14.04.1 and the system made a swap file. to avoid the configuration of the encrypted swap file, when the installation completed i delete the swap file and i resize the sda including the size of the swap file. do you think i did right? the system works fine and i dont need any swap file because i hace 4gb ram on it.15:01
grosjeanakis: if you need a swap file, you can create it on your disk15:02
azizLIGHTmorsnowski: wheres the ppa source file that i can check?15:02
k1lazizLIGHT: "ls -al /etc/apt/sources.list.d"15:03
morsnowskitime to watch snooker15:03
akisgrosjean: do you think was my decision right to delete swap before any leak to it?15:03
azizLIGHTk1l: i misspok, am  not manually installing anything (as in building from source or grabbing a random .deb from somewhere). i mean all about ppa, reinstalling purging and installing15:03
DualBootMePleaseLili USB Creator does not have support for 14.04 LTS. That is the answer. What a joke.15:04
grosjeanakis: i think that you still need a swapfile15:04
OerHeksDualBootMePlease, ubuntu next to xp is a joke too?15:05
DualBootMePleaseYes. But I *need* XP for an old AutoCad instance for work :(15:05
azizLIGHTmorsnowski: yes the ppa is in my sources, ive done apt-get update as well. when i try to install the base package it installes only it, and successfully, but without the dependencies and it doesnt mention this but i know there are dependencies. when i check dpkg -l, theyre already listed as installed, when theyre not15:06
akisgrosjean: what for? i do multitasking and the system doesnt go over 1gb of ram.15:06
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: lili usb can make a 14.04 live usb fine15:06
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: i've used it myself for 14.0415:06
DualBootMePleaseIs it inherently conflictory to try and install 32bit XP and 64bit Ubuntu? or is ok?15:06
grosjeanakis: in fact, it's like you want15:06
akisyea, sure.15:06
StayLowDualBootMePlease: see if autocad will run under a virtual machine15:06

EriC^^are you a mech engineer?15:07
DualBootMePleaseim trying to figure out what the previous problem with this attempt was.15:08
DualBootMePleaseAlso wondering if i installed WinXP DVD from UEFI mode accidentally.15:08
DualBootMePleasei have been unsuccesfful 4 different ways getting 14.04 to install alongside of it. Everytime the install crashes.15:08
cfhowlettDualBootMePease, if your machine supports 64 bit, install 64 bit.15:08
DualBootMePleaseNo. I am a CAD drafter.15:09
afidegnumanyone faced similar situation before?15:09
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: i dont think winxp has uefi support!15:09
DualBootMePleaseOk. But WinXP is 32 bit. That is my question. Is that conflicting?15:09
EriC^^DualBootMePlease:  i think it started with vista15:09
DualBootMePleaseI know it doesnt have UEFI support. But the WinXP install is working just fine.15:09
Ben64DualBootMePlease: ubuntu doesn't care what windows is15:09
DualBootMePleaseBut im wondering if it was installed under UEFI mode if that is somehow screwing up Ubuntu.15:09
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: if you would explain what exactly happened we could help better15:09
OerHeksxp and uefi, no go.15:09
ash`DualBootMePlease: why don't you run XP in a VM?15:09
cfhowlettDualBootMePlease, "shouldn't" but ... windows ...15:09

ash`and it's fast :)15:10
DualBootMePleasesure. ok. ash.15:10
ash`hm i don't like your tone, im out15:10
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: can you explain what happened earlier?15:11
DualBootMePleaseEriC ... i have put this .iso of 14.04 to USB and to DVD ... the USB refuses to even start the install process unless run from UEFI mode.  The DVD starts installing and crashes every time.15:11
medecauhi evryone, i’ve been doing some file shuffling for the last day or so and now I need to pick a filesystem for my external drive. I am currently on osx and moving to ubuntu server. ON wiki(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_systems) I noticed that if I use NTFS I will be able to use the filesystem with a kernel 2.2 or newer. Just wanted to confirm this before jumping in.15:11
DualBootMePleaseWinXP was installed over a hard drive, and fast wiped through XP installer.  It is in one single partition.15:11
=== zz_XeBlackWater is now known as XeBlackWater
DualBootMePleaseI realized my first attempt at installing Ubuntu alongside it went wrong because I was in UEFI mode via bios, not Legacy.15:11
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: so the live usb wont boot unless you boot it in uefi mode?15:12
DualBootMePleaseBut in legacy mode, and using Boot Overide to ensure i am NOT in UEFI mode, NO install of 14.04 will even complete \ start.15:12
tewardmedecau: NTFS will 'work' in Ubuntu but you won't have the same Linux permissions structures - as NTFS doesn't support those kinds of permissions15:12
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: how are you in uefi mode and running winxp though?15:12
DualBootMePleaseYes. Correct, EriC.15:12
reisioDualBootMePlease: did you use a usb stick?15:12
medecauteward: will I be able to read and write?15:12
DualBootMePleaseEriC, itś not that i am running XP in UEFI mode, it is that the reboot to get the DVD or USB to boot first goes to UEFI by default.15:13
OerHeksmedecau, sure, ntfs is good supported, as a data drive.15:13
DualBootMePleaseBut i have figured out how to overide that and make it go to Legacy DVD or USB.15:13
medecauthanks OerHeks and teward15:13
DualBootMePleaseBut The USB 14.04 wont even start without being in UEFI. and the DVD just gives me a fail error once started.15:13
tewardmedecau: yes you should be able to (that's what I meant by 'work').15:13

MrSavageklex, did you get something a log file?15:18
blackyboyI'am using Ubuntu 14.04 Yesterday i bought a Blackmagic intensity Pro Video capture card. Now i want to watch my setup box channels in this card. Is there any TV viewer like software which will support blackmagic intensity Pro ?15:18
MrSavageklex check your fglrx log file15:18
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes15:18
reisioblackyboy: probably several, if it's supported at all15:18
OerHeksklex, ati 2xxx/3xxx/4xxx are no longer supported by fglrx, use the standard driver/15:18
MrSavageklex, it probably didn't install due to packes not being preinstalled15:18
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto15:18
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: the iso seems fine15:19
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: do you have a different usb you can try with?15:19
MrSavageHi all, is there a way to do backups and restores on ubuntu? I screwed up my xorg when i installed amd drivers and was unable to have my desktop bootup. What is your recommended backup tool?15:19
DualBootMePleaseits not the usb.15:19
blackyboyreisio: i have tries mytv and metv these are not working.15:19
cfhowlett!backup | MrSavage15:19
ubottuMrSavage: There are many ways to back your system up. Here's a few: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DuplicityBackupHowto , https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HomeUserBackup , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MondoMindi - See also !sbackup and !cloning15:19
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: ok, is secure boot enabled?15:19
DualBootMePleaseDo you think it could be that the WinXP dvd in all likelyhood booted from within UEFI mode (the default mode my computer loads up in) ?15:19
MrSavagecfhowlett i need a recommendation since there are many15:20
pbxMrSavage, there's a built in Backups app (in 14.04 anyway)15:20
DualBootMePleaseNo. I have all UEFI crap turned off now. BUT see ABOVE.15:20
MrSavagepbx: which one to use?15:20
klexOerHeks: ok i thought they might not be supported anymore...what do u mean by standard drivers? to accept those opensource?15:20
reisioblackyboy: "not working"?15:20
azizLIGHTk1l morsnowski i fixed it by explicitlty listing all the ppa packages in a apt-get install <ppa packages> command. now everythigns working and dpkg -l | grep qt53 is listing true things15:20
OerHeksklex yes, see your card here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsVideoCardsAti15:20
pbxMrSavage, i have no particular recommendation.  however if you have no backup system currently then the most important thing is to begin, and the built-in one is ready to roll15:21
blackyboyreisio: yes software not detecting the card. Is there any video capture Software available ? The software must have the import option from HD camera or from PAL format.15:21
MrSavagepbx: what's the name of the built in one?15:21
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: even if winxp was installed in uefi ( which i think isn't possible ), ubuntu should install in legacy mode15:21
MrSavagepbx: if i install gfx drivers and i screw up my ubuntu by making it hand on the loader, can the backup restore and fix the problem in a fast manner?15:22
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: when you select legacy and boot the usb, what happens?15:22
reisioblackyboy: already answered that15:22
reisioblackyboy: did you install the driver yet?15:22
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: some people install win in uefi and set legacy and install ubuntu that way, then we tell them to install either both in uefi or legacy, but ubuntu still installs..15:22
klexOerHeks: 4330 isnt listed there, it is 4350 though...but if i use those opensource drivers then my pc is freezing when im closing terminal or chrome (not every time but it happens at least once in 30mins and the freeze is few mins)15:23
blackyboyreisio: yes i have installed blackmagic software and drivers, they are working fine. But i wan to use the same card for Viewing tv while im not using the export or import process and one thing more i need any other video import software rather than what i get from blackmagic.15:23
DualBootMePleaseEriC, i was told yesterday by someone here that Ubuntu outright will NOT install in UEFI. ?15:24
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: no ubuntu uses uefi fine15:24
reisioblackyboy: what makes you think they're working fine?15:24
cfhowlettDualBootMePlease, false15:24

thebishopi've got a Dell tp713 external touchpad, and it's locked to 'natural scrolling' on ubuntu.  the mouse settings only recognize it as a 'mouse', so i don't have any options beyond cursor speed.  how can i force ubuntu to treat it as a touchpad?15:25
blackyboyreisio: i can capture video in PAL format, but i can't capture HD videos its too enabled with HDCP we can't if we need to capture a HD we need HD furry II or III15:25
DualBootMePleasethat person was DaftyKins, FYI15:25

MrSavagewhat backup tool should i use if installing drivers make my ubuntu hang on boot?15:27
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: i dont think it matters what is installed on the hdd for the ubuntu live usb to boot15:27
MrSavagewhere i can only use command line15:27
reisioMrSavage: unrelated, just uninstall the drivers15:27
MrSavagereisio: I don't know what changed on my computer when i use the .run file15:28
reisioah, that is the "charm" of .run files, isn't it :p15:28
DualBootMePleaseEriC, well i am honestly just grasping at straws to understand the problem at this point.15:28
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: i think you could remove the hard disk and the live usb will still run15:28
MrSavagereisio: so i think a simple backup would be my best bet15:28
MrSavagefor when i screw up my system15:28
reisioMrSavage: for if you encounter this situation in the future, you mean?15:29
DualBootMePleasein UEFI mode, Ubuntu actually DID install next to WinXP but i did it manually, because in UEFI mode Ubuntu Install did not recognize nore give me an option for Install Next To Windows XP so i manually made the partitions.15:29
DualBootMePleaseBut then i had no access to Ubuntu. Grub never came up, and WinXP just loaded straightaway.15:29
MrSavagereisio: yes so I can restore quickly and retry installing gfx drivers15:29
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: ok, so wait a second15:29
DualBootMePleaseThat was around the time DaftyKins told me Ubuntu UEFI no no.15:29
reisioWindows XP on a UEFI box, far out15:29
reisioMrSavage: right15:29
Guest62966i installed java plugin on my firefox but website of nvidia says that required java15:29
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: you're not making a lot of sense15:29
reisioMrSavage: I like rsync and rsync-based things, like rdiff-backup, depending on the type of backups you want15:29
DualBootMePleaseoh. i am pretty sure i am making perfect sense.15:30
DualBootMePlease but try me.15:30
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: after installing ubuntu in uefi mode, winxp was loading ( with the bios set to uefi ) ?15:30
MrSavagereisio: I want to make a restore point for the system and restore it so i can boot properly again15:30
DualBootMePleaseOk. I am ASSUMING that when i stuck the WinXP disk in to install, that my computer WAS in UEFI mode.15:30
MrSavagereisio: should i use rdiff-backup?15:30
DualBootMePleaseThus, i am assuming XP installed UNDER UEFI mode.15:30
klexso anyone knows how to install mobility 4330 drivers on ubuntu now that fglrx doesnt support it anymore?15:30
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: you didnt answer my question..15:31
DualBootMePleaseAfter that, I went to install Ubuntu for hte first time next to it.15:31
DualBootMePleaseMy computer was STILL in UEFI mode for THAT install.15:31
MrSavageklex: check the company site for proprietary drivers15:31
DualBootMePleaseWhen i started that Ubuntu install, i was given no choice for Install Next To Windows15:31
DualBootMePleaseSo i manually made partitions, and installed it next to it myself.15:31
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: i think uefi was made in 2001 or so, winxp was made in 2000 i think15:31
DualBootMePleaseAFTER THAT. No Ubuntu to be found. Only XP loaded.15:31
MrSavagereisio: should i use rdiff-backup?15:31
DualBootMePleaseim just telling you *what i did*15:32
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: ok great, i'm trying to understand what you did15:32
DualBootMePleasewell im telling you if you stick a DVDinstall disc in my computer with out specifically overiding the boot process, it is inherently in UEFI mode.15:32
DualBootMePleaseAnd that is how i installed XP (because i was not thinking)15:32
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: maybe it's a hybrid system that runs efi first, if it can't find anything loads stuff as msdos?15:33
DualBootMePleaseit IS. it is a brand new computer (earlier this year)15:33
DualBootMePleaseit is so new Ubuntu had some serious bugs with my system for months and months.15:33
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: ok, so if ubuntu isn't loading except as uefi15:33
DualBootMePleaselike i had to reboot twice everytime i rebooted to get passed bios screen.15:33
DualBootMePlease(fixed now, btw)15:34
EriC^^DualBootMePlease: ok, is ubuntu still installed or did you wipe the installation?15:34
DualBootMePleasei deleted those partitions.15:34
DualBootMePleaseits just the one WinXP partition now.15:34
EriC^^try to install ubuntu again15:34
EriC^^actually can you try to boot the live usb15:34
xanguagot a brand new computer, install XP on it :/15:34
EriC^^then come here as you can check the partition table and if efi is enabled etc.15:35
EriC^^xangua: yeah15:35
DualBootMePleasealright im out for 5. let you know when i get back wtf is up15:35
* cfhowlett thinks installing XP, an unsupported and defunct OS, on ANYTHING, let alone a NEW computer is ... questionable.15:35
DualBootMePleaseWell I aint payin for Windows7 just to dick around in AutoCAD2004. sorry.15:36
reisioMrSavage: rdiff-backup makes rsync do really nice incremental backups15:36
reisioMrSavage: so if you want the ability to see changes in your files over time, it's good15:36
reisioMrSavage: if you _only_ need to be able to access how your system was at some single specific interval from the present to the past, rsync alone is fine15:36
MrSavagei see15:36
DualBootMePleaseAnd XP is runing just fine on this new computer. Its ubuntu that is giving me crap in a DualBoot environment. (worked fine by itself though)15:37
DualBootMePleasewhatever. out. back in 5.15:37
reisiousing rsync alone is simpler if you want to give yourself a window to backup15:37
reisiolike say 24 hours passes, and you replace the old backup15:37
MrSavagereisio: how would backup my entire system?15:37
reisiobut you can not replace if you want, rdiff-backup just works better for that15:37

MrMonkey31ok. ok folks, just reporting: I turned *secure boot* off in my comp's BIOS to try to get the live cd to boot, but it was all for nothing and now I already probably have cyber-gonorrhea on my dell16:05
Lucaxmy sound is gone everywhere in firefox, any presen ubuntu bugs?16:05
MrMonkey31PS, I hate my life16:06
reisioLucax: running any other audio?16:06
Lucaxwell I was just recording using Ardour, maybe that has something to do with it16:06
reisioyou have probably accidentally monopolized your audio output system16:07
reisiowhich can happen if you try to use more than one system16:07
reisioalsa, oss, pulseaudio, etc.16:07
reisiomake sure ardour et al. are dead, then restart Firefox, and see if it goes away16:07
reisioif it does, that's probably what happened16:07
reisiothen you'd want to reconfigure one or the other to be using the same approach16:07
Lucaxhow do I know wether ardour is dead or not?16:08
LucaxI am little new to linux, I know in windows there is this task manager but here I don't know how to see if every process is dead or not16:09

DualBootMePleaseWhy would a full Ubuntu install not include Grub?16:27
brianblaze420it asks you if you want to install it16:27
DualBootMePleaseI MD5 checksummed the ISO. it is fine.16:27
brianblaze420it gives you the option it is not forced16:27
DualBootMePleaseNo it most certainly does not.16:27
MrSavagei'm having issues trying to install some AMD driver, can I get some assistance please?16:27
DualBootMePleaseNot true.16:28
brianblaze420and when you install it you need to make sure you put it in the right place16:28
oli_bDualBootMePlease: when You selected to install ubuntu alongside XP, at the bottom at the window what did You select?  to install the bootloader into /dev/sdaX  or /dev/sda   (sdaX is the ubuntu partition)16:28
DualBootMePleaseoli_b ... i saw no such option and it did not ask me to select an option?16:28
bubbasauresDualBootMePlease, Don't just argue a point you have no clue on and just detail the issue.16:28
DualBootMePleaseWhat would be the point of having an Install Alongside WindowsXP option if you were then required to specify something in addition to make both installs work?16:29
DualBootMePleaseIm not arguing. 420s point is not correct.16:29
DualBootMePleaseIt never asks you to install grub.16:29
brianblaze420because it didn't mess with your xp partition16:29

DualBootMePleasei dont really understand the continue suggestion to Go In To Live USB And Install GRUB. I dont see or understand that option.16:32

DualBootMePleasethen every single command uses Sudo16:34

BluesKajislandmonkey, please clarify...installed what?16:35
DualBootMePleaseBRB im going to log back in from a Live ubuntu instance so we can better troubleshoot16:35
islandmonkeyBluesKaj: I just installed nvidia-prime after you said it16:36
BluesKajislandmonkey, ok16:36
azizLIGHTis it ok to use tabs rather than spaces in /etc/fstab16:38
islandmonkeyBluesKaj: Sorry to disrupt anything you were writing next, but I just noticed something weird - attempting to put brightness down (it has no visible effect on the backlight itself of course) actually changes the value of /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/actual_brightness16:39
islandmonkeyHighest it can go is 976 btw16:39

BluesKajislandmonkey, use the Fn key with the brightness key on some Lenovos, my Lenovo works with that combo16:41

DualBootToTheHeaplease advise17:07
MrSavagecan someone help me install drivers for the amd r9 290 on ubuntu 14.04 amd64?17:08
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: what's your actual problem ?17:08
DualBootToTheHea^WinXP loads immediatley. No trace of Ubuntu on restart.17:08
EriC^^ikonia: an attitude problem i think17:08
brianblaze420u want to put grub on /dev/sda17:08
DualBootToTheHeaEveryone here tells me either i scrweed up my ubuntu install, failed to load grub, or some other shenanigans.17:08
cfhowlettwindows xp + attitude = bad combination17:08
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: summerise the problem please.17:09
wildwindxubuntu75w: Tried to right-click it?17:09
DualBootToTheHea^problem. Want dualboot XP and 14.04 ... no option to not load in to XP at start.17:09
Yoko|WorkQuestion, are there any other ways to increase preformance for Ubuntu 12.04 installed in a Virtual Box?  I've already blacklisted the i2c_piix417:09
DualBootToTheHeaHave both OS installed per instructions. Restart yields only XP.17:09
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: boot a live usb17:09
DualBootToTheHeaNeed method for accessing Grub at restart or otherwise to select OS.17:09
DualBootToTheHeaI am in a Live USB right now.17:10
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: so if it boots straight to XP either a.) the boot loader was installed on the drive you are not booting from b.) the boot loader was not installed17:10
k1lDualBootToTheHea: what if they are right but you beeing to stubborn thinking you can do everything right? i did not see you actual work propperly on a solution but just shouting and denying.17:10
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: those are the two realistic options17:10
cfhowlettYoko|Work, couple options: no unity.  switch to xfce or lxde. that will lighten your system demands a bit17:10
DualBootToTheHeasomeone look at THIS:http://paste.ubuntu.com/9355954/17:10
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: ok, type sudo parted -l17:10
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: paste it in paste.ubuntu.com17:10
bubbasauresYoko|Work, Ubuntu is a bit chunky in vbox how much ram is allocated?17:10
xubuntu75wwildwind I tried to reconfigure the network with the Network Manager, but everything appears grayed :-(17:10
Yoko|Workcfhowlett, forgot to metion, I'm on Xubuntu.  Unity was terrible.17:10
bubbasauressame on lighter de as well17:10
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: looking at that boot report - it looks like it's booting off the second disk17:10
DualBootToTheHeabreak it down for me, ikonia.17:11
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: it looks like it's booting from the disk with windows on, rather than the disk with linux on17:11
DualBootToTheHeawhat do?17:11
cfhowlettYoko|Work, agreed. How much ram did you give the VM?17:11
DualBootToTheHeawell i could have told you that.17:11
Yoko|Workbubbasaures, 4 GB at present with 4 CPUs, though that may be a bit overkill17:11
xubuntu75wwildwind I mean, I can initiate Network Manager, but the pages are grayed when I try to add a wired network... :-(17:11
Yoko|Workserver has 32 GB total17:11
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: change the boot disk in the bios, or press the boot selector (normally F12 in most pre-boots) to select the other disk for a one off boot17:11
bubbasauresYoko|Work, that is plenty, not sure beyond trying a lighter desktop.17:12
DualBootToTheHeaBIOS only gives me option for my entire driev as ONE.17:12
DualBootToTheHeano option for either or partition.17:12
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: you don't boot a partition17:12
ikoniayou boot a disk17:12
DualBootToTheHeaIt reads the entire drive as one.17:12
ikoniaand you need to boot the other disk17:12
Yoko|WorkFigured as much bubbasaures, I'm just glad Unity is gone!17:12
DualBootToTheHeaOk. so here is what i am saying for the 3rd time.17:12
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: you have like 3 disks17:12
DualBootToTheHeaTwo partions on one disc. One option: that disc.17:12
ikoniaEriC^^: one is the USB17:12
EriC^^i think 2 disks17:12
DualBootToTheHeaEric http://snag.gy/6hCXh.jpg17:12
ikoniathere are two disks17:12
ikoniaand the boot report shows it clearly17:13
DualBootToTheHeai couldn't figure out your ubuntu paste link17:13
ikoniawindows is on one, and grub/linux is on the other17:13
cfhowlettYoko|Work, I imagine you've enabled guest additions?17:13
DualBootToTheHeaYup. Those are two "disks" on ONE harddrive.17:13
DualBootToTheHeaMy bios does not recogjnize TWO17:13
DualBootToTheHeait recognizes the ONE physical drive.17:13
Yoko|WorkSure did cfhowlett17:13
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: there are 2 hard drives17:13
ikonianot one17:13
DualBootToTheHeaWhat you are asking me to do is impossible.17:13

rodney77Hi Ubuntu people. I am in the market for a quality MP3 player. I had an ipod touch, which didn't play nice with ubuntu at all. Even my android smart phone wasn't great with it. My question for you is: What line(s) of audio players are ideal for syncing with ubuntu?17:13
DualBootToTheHeaOk the TB drive is a STORAGE driev.17:13
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: there are two different disks17:13
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: ok no problem17:13
DualBootToTheHeaThe second drive you see is likely irrelvant.17:13
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: focus with me17:14
wildwindxubuntu75w: are there any wired connections in the list?17:14
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: no it's not17:14
Yoko|WorkThank god he's not doing a RAID17:14
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: it's very important17:14
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: type sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt17:14
DualBootToTheHeai did that. it indicated no progress or anything just new line at prompt17:15
ikoniaif you look at the boot report you can see that SDB1 contains the windows boot loader17:15
DualBootToTheHeaEric ^17:15
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done17:15
islandmonkeyOerHeks: No, that workaround did not work17:15
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: type the above line ^^17:15
* OerHeks wonders if that XP is running on IDE-mode instead of AHCI17:15
ikoniayou can see it is booting from the wrong/second disk17:15
ikoniait's that clear17:15
xubuntu75wwildwind No, there aren't17:15
ikoniasdb1 Boot files:        /boot.ini /ntldr /NTDETECT.COM17:15
bubbasauresEriC^^, They have grub in sda17:15
OerHeksislandmonkey, sad to hear that :-(17:15
ikoniaso it needs to boot from sda17:15
ikoniait's that simple - there is no more work / debug needed17:16
EriC^^bubbasaures: i know17:16
DualBootToTheHeaubuntu@ubuntu:~$ for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done17:16
ikoniathere is no need to mount any disks17:16
ikoniathe bios boot order is wrong17:16
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: type sudo chroot /mnt17:16
timvisher-xubuntis there a way to swap alt and super?17:16
EriC^^ikonia: let him reinstall grub anyways17:16
nicofsI've played a bit with various settings. Still my problem persists: some web pages load, some don't, some only patially; mail through thunderbird won't go out, but in. Networking is messed up - I don't know what to do. Please help!17:16
ikoniathat would be bad17:16
EriC^^ikonia: how so?17:16
ikoniaapplying grub to the second disk - woudl remove his only windows boot loader17:16
pilikeitsI have a question. i have two monitors and if i want to watch movie or youtube video on fullscreen on left monitor and if i mouseclick something on right monitor the fullscreen goes away. hmmm17:16
DualBootToTheHeak. i did that (no signs it did anything) Eric17:16
cfhowletttimvisher, sure. system > keyboard > keybindings17:17
EriC^^ikonia: i mean installing to sda17:17
EriC^^not the second17:17
ikoniaEriC^^: it's already on sda17:17
cfhowlett!keybindings | pilikeits17:17
pilikeitshow i will prevent that to happen?17:17
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: do you get a # prompt ?17:17
ikoniawe can see it's on SDA17:17
wildwindrodney77: What program do you use to sync? Try MediaMonkey, it works with iPod an Android17:17
ikoniawe don't need to apply it to sda - boot report shows it as on sda17:17
ikoniait's booting from sdb17:17
DualBootToTheHeahold on Eric17:17
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: type grub-install --recheck /dev/sda17:17
ikoniayou can see this17:17
DualBootToTheHeaFor Ikonia's sake:17:17
pilikeitscfhowlett, what you mean?17:17
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: you're 2 commands away, and there's no harm doing it17:17
ikoniathere is17:18
ikoniado not do iot17:18
DualBootToTheHeaTHIS is the PHYSICAL hardrive with BOTH OS on it: http://snag.gy/c8lFv.jpg17:18
ikoniayou have a sane grub17:18
rodney77wildwind, MediaMonkey is fantastic, but the last time I checked there wasn't a native version for ubuntu17:18
DualBootToTheHeathe other one you see (if you see it) IS irrelevant. Just FYI17:18
EriC^^ikonia: what's the harm in reinstalling grub to sda?17:18
ikoniaapplying it to an already applied grub from an unknown chroot17:18
ikoniafix the boot order17:18
timvisher-xubuntcfhowlett: meaning system settings -> keybord -> keybindings? because i don't see the keybindings option there17:18
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: use the drop down - you will see there is an sdb17:18
DualBootToTheHeaSee? http://snag.gy/4gM40.jpg17:18
ikoniain the top right17:18
DualBootToTheHeaThat is STORAGE17:18
rodney77wildwind, to answer your question, I use Nightingal17:18
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: but your boot loader is on the storage disk17:18
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: that is where it's booting from17:18
DualBootToTheHeaLOOK AT IT17:18
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: please stop the caps17:18
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: that is where the boot laoder is17:19
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: that is where it is booting from17:19
DualBootToTheHeahow can you see that?17:19
brianblaze420boot flags :)17:19
xubuntu75wwildwind I'm going to try the right click thing, I'll be right back...17:19
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: in the boot report17:19
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: you pasted it earlier17:19
bubbasaureslast couple of lines on bootrepair states this17:20
DualBootToTheHeaOk. fine. So do what now?17:20
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: tell your bios to boot from the other disk17:20
DualBootToTheHeaI really don't want a boot sector on my SDB drive though :(17:20
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: so it boots grub instead of windows17:20
DualBootToTheHeaBut i guess that is maybe for another day.17:20
DualBootToTheHeaWhy would Ubuntu Install not ask if two phyhsical drives were present which to use?17:21
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: it does ask you, you probably just missed it17:21
DualBootToTheHeaWhy wouldn't it make the LOGICAL choice and install on the same drive as the XP OS?17:21
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: it did17:21
wildwindnicofs: is there a page that fail to load every time?17:21
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: it did17:21
DualBootToTheHeaI just chose "install alongside XP"17:21
Lixumuxhi all, in ubuntu 14.04 I am using gnome 3 flashback, how to get the gnome panels to autohide without the side effect of removing unity components, which I am unsure might break the system or prevent switching to unity if I want that later?17:21
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: it installed it on the primary master17:21
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: you are not booting from that drive though17:21
OerHeksdoes your xp have satacontroller drivers at all? so strange you installed xp on such new hardware .. with 32 bit satacontroller drivers, that makes me think your sata controller is in IDE mode17:21
DualBootToTheHeaHow is my storage drive the "primary master" if XP is on the other?17:21
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: it can't know that you've told it to boot from the other disk17:21
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: ubuntu is installed on the primary master, and so is grub17:22
timvisher-xubuntcfhowlett: or maybe you means xfce4-settings-editor17:22
nicofswildwind, always the same pages don't load - it's not random. most prominent page is facebook17:22
DualBootToTheHeaCan you clarify what designates "primary master"17:22
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: your WINDOWS install installed the boot loader on the the second drive - so ask microsoft17:22
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: it appears that your other storage drive has a boot loader17:22
DualBootToTheHeaAs the drive you are refering to has ONLY EVER contained music and files.17:22
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: so ?17:22
cfhowletttimvisher, I'm sorry, I thought you were on ubuntu no xubuntu ...17:22
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: it would be better if you stopped arguing and started fixing17:22
DualBootToTheHeaI'm trying to understand, not argue.17:22
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: you've had it explained to you very clearly, and it's getting tedious you stating how wrong I am17:22
DualBootToTheHeaI can't really proceed with anything until i am sure i understand WTF is going on.17:23
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: so either fix it, and accept the truth of the issue, or give it a rest17:23
DualBootToTheHeai'm getting much closer now. THANK YOU17:23
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: I've explained exactly what's going on17:23
DualBootToTheHeaTHANK YOU17:23
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: you are booting from your second drive17:23
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: windows bootloader is on the second drive17:23
DualBootToTheHeaokay. that is unfortunate. :(17:23
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: ubuntu has chosen to install it's bootloader to the drive with the OS on17:23
ikoniayou are not booting from that drive17:23
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: the bootloader and partition table are only on the first 512bytes in mbr17:23
ikoniayour bios config is the problem17:23
ikoniafix it17:23
DualBootToTheHea"fix it" not detailed enough for this idiot.17:23
DualBootToTheHeabut thank you generally17:23
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: open the bios - select the other disk from the boot drive order17:24
bubbasauresLixumux, it is in the shell as an addon, don't see anything on the fallback.17:24
brianblaze420so when booting just choose the first drive probably F12 or go into bios and permanently change the order :)17:24
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: use the temporary boot device menu that a lot of bioss have (normally F12) and seclect the other disk to test17:24
DualBootToTheHeaok. But if i want to move all that crap to the correct drive, that is basically a complete reinstall of both at this point?17:25
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: no17:25
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: no - but one thing at a time17:25
DualBootToTheHeaOkay. I'll be back. Booted from drive 2.17:25
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: what do you mean by remove all that crap?17:25
DualBootToTheHeaI mean i want to get any boot stuff on to the other drive.17:25
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: everything is fine it's just that sdb has a boot loader and your bios may be booting it17:25
DualBootToTheHeaThat TB drive should have no trace of an OS on it.17:25
EriC^^DualBootToTheHea: it doesn't affect anything, it's just the first 512 bytes17:25
DualBootToTheHeaOk. So i'm gonna go swtich boot order and be back.17:26
EriC^^i think17:26
ikoniaDualBootToTheHea: you're actually in a very good configuration point17:26
DualBootToTheHea^that's encouraging17:26
wildwindnicofs: you can enable web developer tools in Firefox or Chrome and colect network requests log when loading that page. then paste it somewhere17:26
DualBootToTheHeathanks for tolerating my idiocy.17:26
timvisher-xubunthmm. i'm still not seeing how to swap <Super> and <Alt> using xfce4-settings-editor17:26
timvisher-xubuntassuming that's where i'm supposed to be17:27
Lixumuxbubbasaures, when selecting to install gnome-shell or gnome-shell-extensions, it informs me that it will REMOVE such things as unity-controlcenter and gnome-flashback..., sounds scary...17:28

rr1991Hi. I want to backup the whole /home folder, but instead of having scheduled backups, I would like to have to whole map mirrorred on an external drive, pretty much like how you would have it with a cloud. So that every time I adjust/create/delete a file, the same happens on that external drive. What software can do this?17:47

bubbasauresLixumux, If all is good on your install beyond this use the ppa-purge, than install the gnome-shell it loads the fallback as well.17:48
LixumuxI have seen warnings online about some of the gnome3 installations removing parts of the system and making it unstable or not working. I want to be able to choose between unity and gnome3 at the login screen17:49
bubbasauresLixumux, I'm a bit concerned however you did not know this was in the repos, so we don't now how stable your setup is, be sure to be backed up.17:49
Lixumuxbubbasaures, and the "fallback" is the function that provides a way to choose unity ?17:50
rr1991Rory: is there graphical software for that? Too inexperienced to do this on an important system that is not mine.17:50
bubbasauresLixumux, No the fallback is what you said from the beginning you are running, you called it flashback.17:51
bubbasauresThese are all desktops17:51
Lixumuxbubbasaures, I saw that it was in the repos, but several online articles said to add that PPA first and do an apt-get update before installing, including posts at ubuntu.com17:51

ulkeshforgive me ahead of time as this may be a crazy question, but is there software for Ubuntu that provides an SFTP server that does not use users on the system? (i.e. it uses users set up in a configuration file/etc)18:58
ses1984hi, i'm trying to find more detailed information about the integrated audio in my PC. the sound settings just say "built in audio"18:58
ses1984lspci -vvv says "Intel Corporation 8 Series/C220 Series Chipset High Definition Audio Controller" but i dont think intel makes audio controllers...18:59
kishulkesh, the answer is yes!18:59
kishthere is a ftp user usually18:59
ses1984if i go to acer, the manufacturer's website, it just says 'realtek' but not which model18:59
kishruns as a daemon.18:59
ulkeshkish: my point is that i'd like to have an sftp service that doesn't require me to `adduser`, but instead read user auth/config from a configuration file19:00
ulkeshkish: or `useradd`, rather19:01
contrastses1984: Are you trying to find out because your onboard audio quit working, by chance? I have that same audio chip and it just stopped working after an update.19:01
ses1984nope it's working fine, so far, i'm on 14.04 x64 up to date19:01
rypervencheulkesh: Not that I know of. You would have to use a different method of authentication, such as LDAP or something. When you log in using SFTP, it needs a home directory, a user, and permissions.19:01
ses1984i'm trying to find the specs on it, like what is the signal to noise ratio. basically i'm trying to decide if i should buy a better sound card19:01
bekksulkesh: øu can use proftpd or vsftpd with a virtual user setup.19:02
ulkeshrypervenche: okay thanks, we may just have to add the users then and chroot them to the folder they would be allowed to upload files to...i was just hoping to avoid creating users in the system19:02

mbalmerplug it into the wall socket as well20:19
remmy_yeah everything is plugged in20:19
FangornTheEntYeah. The USB that has it installed isn't recognized and the USB that doesn't have it is recognized. I tried copying the files to the recognized USB but the computer still says "Missing Operating System". I have chosen to boot from USB and tried letting it run. Neither work.20:20
remmy_its stuck at 70$20:20
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: is this an uefi machine? did you disable secreboot?20:20
FangornTheEntlotuspsychje: it's a BIOS machine.20:20
k1lremmy_: if the battery is old it could be that its not going to 100% anymore. ubuntu shows that state. maybe windows calls the 70% still 100%20:20
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: how did you create your usb?20:21
FangornTheEntlotuspsychje: A friend of mine did it because there is no way to create the USB with a Chromebook.20:21
remmy_its a pretty new computer, I got it about 6 months ago20:21
eb0twell remmy maybe a couple cells in he battery are gone20:21
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: maybe the stick is badly made?20:22
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: missing operating system sounds like the hd wants to boot20:22
eb0tuse the computer for  a while ...as the charge drops as long as it recharges to 70 percent then its good to go20:22
FangornTheEntlotuspsychje: Doubt it. Is there any way to use the files I have from the bad USB by transferring them to the good USB?20:22
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: i would try that universal usb installer from ubuntu site20:23
remmy_ok cool20:23
remmy_thanks for the help20:23
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: there is also a boot cd image 'plop boot manager' that can force your machine to boot an usb20:23
remmy_have a good one20:23
FangornTheEntlotuspsychje: Ok. But it says no OS even with a force boot from USB20:24
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: what does happens when you try to boot your usb20:24
OerHeksFangornTheEnt, in some bios types you need to set your usb in 2 places, boot priority and hdd priority20:24
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: sounds like the usb isnt set right indeed20:24
FangornTheEntOerHeks: I'll try that.20:24
Bashing-omFangornTheEnt: Maybe the .iso is bad ? http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows .20:25
OerHeksFangornTheEnt, or try an other port20:25
FangornTheEntThe bad USB isn't recognized on any port. The good USB is "Missing operating system" on all ports. Is there a way to copy the files so that it will boot?20:27
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: i rather think its like OerHeks said your bios is not set to boot usb everywhere20:27
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: check boot priority, boot sequence,etc20:28
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: you can check if your usb stick works on another machine?20:29
FangornTheEntBoth USBs are recognized and work with the chromebook. The boot priority is set to USB Diskette on Key/USB Hard Disk then USB CD/DVD ROM Drive then the Notebook HD20:30
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: did you check sata layout, some bios have settings there also20:32
FangornTheEntShould I enable boot from USB floppy?20:32
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: go tru all bios options, makes no sense it doesnt boot the usb20:32
lotuspsychjeif you sure your usb stick has working ubuntu on it;..20:32
FangornTheEntI have gone through all the options unless there's some hidden menu I can't see20:32
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: what mobo bios is this?20:33
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: try that plop boot manager write on a cdrom, and force your usb to boot20:34
lotuspsychjeif that doesnt work, its a bad usb20:34
FangornTheEntCan I just extract the zip or do I need to do something else?20:35
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: burn as an image to the cd20:35
lotuspsychjeFangornTheEnt: check on their site howto20:36
FangornTheEntSlight problem with that. I have Chromebook. The Chromebook can't do that afaik.20:36

reisiopersonally, I tend to watch the file size of where I'm writing21:41
reisiowhile(true); do du -hs path/to/newstuff; sleep 1m; done21:41

SleepersTideHi all23:05
SleepersTideI want to do a release upgrade from trusty to utopic, but the upgrade tool wants to remove my IRC client for no apparent reason23:05
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest31423
SleepersTideHow do I stop it from doing that?23:05
k1lSleepersTide: which package?23:06
SleepersTidek1l: hexchat23:06
k1lhow did you install hexchat?23:06
SleepersTidefrom the ubuntu repos23:06
=== Kryxo is now known as Kryptron
Jordan_USleepersTide: How are you trying to upgrade? What is the exact message about removal of hexchat?23:07
SleepersTideJordan_U: using do-release upgrade or its frontend; it says "41 packages are going to be removed. 237 new packages are going to be installed. 2112 packages are going to be upgraded."23:08
SleepersTideand hexchat is one of the ones to be removed23:08
SleepersTideoops, *do-release-upgrade23:09
k1lthat should not do that.23:10
SleepersTideI tried setting the Lock Version option in synaptic but it didn't help23:10
k1lmaybe just let it go and install hexchat afterwars23:10
Chuck_Norrisbackup its folder first, it shoud be .hexchat -.-23:12
Chuck_NorrisSleepersTide: ----23:12
k1lits not purging. so configs will stay23:12
SleepersTideI'll back it up just in case23:13
SleepersTidethere seems to be a new version in the utopic repos, possibly there's a dependency conflict23:14
castielLFM need 1 tank and 3 dps Soo HC full run wisper me23:18
vlad_General release/package question: There's a package currently available in vivid that I'd like to use, but I'm on trusty. Is the only solution here to have the upstream maintainer make a new build for trusty or is there a way to make this work?23:21
k1lyou will need a trusty package23:21
OerHeksvlad_, build it yourself?23:22
k1lsee if a PPA is for trusty23:22
vlad_OerHeks: It's a bit complicated, I'm creating cloud images for other people so I'd like for their systems to be maintainable23:22
vlad_Happy to do that, but I'd prefer for them to be updatable if possible23:22
math695xangua: ty so much dude23:22
math695I got it23:22
Jordan_USleepersTide: Remove the lock before upgrading, as it will only make things more complicated (and you don't want to forget about it).23:23
xanguamath695: did you made it¿23:23
=== math695 is now known as Ethoscience
Ethoscienceyeah xangua23:23
EthoscienceI downloaded mozplugger and I changed it in "preferences/applications"23:23
Jordan_USleepersTide: Unless having hexchat is really critical for you, I would just upgrade and try installing hexchat again post-upgrade. It's likely there will be some problem with installing it (or it wouldn't have been removed in the first place) but it will be easier to pin down the exact issue.23:24
SleepersTideJordan_U: too late, I'll sort it out after the upgrade23:24
Ethosciencejhutchins: that link don't works since there isn't adobe for linux23:24
Jordan_UEthoscience: What Adobe product are you looking for? Acrobat is available for GNU/Linux (though I would recommend using Free alternatives instead).23:25
EthoscienceAdobe reader.23:25
SleepersTideChuck_Norris: BTW hexchat's config is stored in ~/.config/hexchat23:26
EthoscienceI was looking for a good pdf viewer.23:26
EthoscienceI used to use okular23:26
Ethoscience(and I'm still using it)23:26
Jordan_UEthoscience: It seems Acrobat for GNU/Linux actually has been discontinued since I last looked.23:27
EthoscienceOh, I've never seen it in inux23:27
EthoscienceAnyway, I'm newbie on kubuntu.23:27
Ethoscience(and Gnu/linux)23:27
Jordan_UEthoscience: Have you tried Evince? (It's the default PDF viewer in Ubuntu, though not in Kubuntu and some other flavors).23:28
EthoscienceYeah I've used it.23:29
EthoscienceI think I prefer okular.23:29
Jordan_UEthoscience: What improvements are you looking for?23:29
Ethoscience I'm not looking for anything in particular23:30
EthoscienceJust cheking if there is another pdf viewer.23:30

Chuck_Norrisdid you try gnome-shell? -.-23:53
mindless_chaosI did not care for mate. However I liked awesome, would be good for a server23:53
mindless_chaosGnome-shell? I will give it a try23:53
