BaubeThx guys, I'm copying my files from my ruined partitions ! I'll try to fix the table, but for now I see to folders copied on my External HD, feeling much better :D00:08
EuaDikonia, i'm unfamiliar with where that is00:08
shurtagulI made a mistake.. I accidentally deleted most of my notifications in xubuntu's panel, is there a way to undo this, or get them back?00:08
ikoniaEuaD: normaly dictated in the apache config00:08
EuaDshurtagul, try readding indicator plugin or notification area00:09

EuaDikonia, apache2.conf?  this is what was installed by default http://gyazo.com/fab64e1a89b38f5702b9c4ed18f21f7f00:11
Bashing-omshurtagul: I am not familiar with xubuntu, but does this exist : /home/<user>/.config/xfce4/panel/ ? If so you can delete that file and reboot. The file will be re-created to default values .00:13
shurtagulOh, my notification are is still there, but my clock, and everything else is gone, I jsut installed xubuntu desktop, so I just want the defaults back00:13
ikoniaEuaD: no, you need the site config00:14
quidnuncikonia: So, any idea on why my mount table is screwed up00:14
ikoniaquidnunc: no, it's most odd00:14
ikoniaquidnunc: I just did a test on mine and it worked fine00:14
RogyHello, I have a quick question I have around 50GB of text files , and I need to remove duplicate lines from them. How should I go about doing this?00:16
ikoniaRogy: have to work out a regex pattern matching for that00:16
ikoniaRogy: sed/cut/awk would then allow you to remove them00:17
shurtagulThanks guys, I deleted the files & restarted xfce and it remade the defaults :)00:17
quidnuncikonia: Alright, thanks anyway00:18
RogyI was thinking about doing it like that, however I'm unsure if it would work across files. Aka there's a line with text "foo" in file1 and same line in file2.00:18
RogyI'm starting to think I should maybe just load the files into a database and have each line be one row (since I'm only worried about identical rows) and do it like that.00:19
EuaDikonia, there's sites-enabled and sites-available.00:19
Bashing-omshurtagul: Great ! : )00:19
ikoniaEuaD: enabled would be logical for a site thats working00:20
EuaDikonia, it's says it's a virtual host00:20
EriC^^Rogy: are they on seperate lines?00:20
EuaDikonia, maybe i need to get to the basics here. where's a good tutorial for setting up a basic web server in xubuntu 14.04.100:21
EriC^^Rogy: sort -u /path/to/file00:23
EriC^^Rogy: it will rearrange the order though00:23
RogyEriC^^: Order is not a problem00:23
EriC^^ok, sort -u /path/to/file > /new/file00:25
Chuck_NorrisRogy: for i in *.txt ; do awk '!($0 in array) { array[$0]; print }' $i > awked.$i ; done00:25
EriC^^^^ that will keep the order btw00:26
Chuck_NorrisxD yep00:26
RogyChuck_Norris: Hmm, will that remove duplicates across files? For example, if there's a line with text foo in file1, and there's a line with same text in file2, will it remove that line from file2?00:27
RogyChuck_Norris: (Hopefully that made sense, apologies if it's a bit confusing replacing sleep with coffee doesn't work always)00:28
Chuck_Norrisi did a test recently and it worked like a charm, i did 2 archive with 4 lines where 2 of them duplicated, and it worked, it made00:28
Chuck_NorrisRogy: yes i will remove duplicate lines across files00:29
Chuck_Norrisit* will00:30
RogyChuck_Norris: will try it now00:30
EriC^^Chuck_Norris: no it wont00:30
EriC^^Chuck_Norris: he means as if the files are concatenated and it's doing the awk on it00:31

Chuck_NorrisRogy: EriC^^ is this ok?  http://i.imgur.com/udAehLk.png00:33
Chuck_Norrisis that the result he spect?00:34
EriC^^he wants if there is in test1 and test2 the same line it only leaves one00:35
EriC^^he could cat them and run awk then split them again00:35
RogyChuck_Norris: Yep, what EriC^^ said00:35
EriC^^or maybe use comm or something to get it done00:35
EriC^^comm can tell you which lines are in common between the two files00:36
RogySince I'm lazy I'll just shove it all into a database and run a query, seems to have least hassle. Thanks for the help anyways guys, much apprecieted :)00:36
Chuck_Norrisoh! now i undertand, idk about comm but i think "uniq" does something like that too00:37

shurtagulIt seems to be a bug, there's arrows, but they wont do anything, and I think other people have had the same problem01:05
EriC^^Chuck_Norris: i think it would be a headache to do it across files, you could check test1 vs test2, test1 vs test3, then test2 vs test3, or something, i'm sure there's a better way or something01:06

Froggjust to clarify, it is a 64bit processor01:14
xmetalif you really want to go  that route of wiping out everything, I think the easist way is just let the Ubuntu install "wipe the entire drive" (close to that exact choice of words)01:15
xmetalduring the partiting step01:15
EriC^^Frogg: you want to convert to gpt?01:15
xmetalif possible, i'd just advice to doulbe check you have all your stuff backed up first01:15
Froggwhatever gets me dual booting in the long run01:16
xmetal"just in case" / the "measure twice, cut once" thing01:16
xmetalwhats one the drive now?01:16
Froggi cant even access ubuntu, the usb doesnt boot. and since it's a new tablet, i dont really have anything to back up01:17
xmetal(note: * i have no experience with this UEFI stuff if it invloves that)  someone else in here could be more helpful in that case01:17

EriC^^shurtagul: right click then edit or something01:18
shurtagulEriC^^, yesh, I think there's a bug, the arrows do nothing01:19
Froggbasically, if you plug a mouse and keyboard into the tablet, it functions as a full windows 8 computer... that doesnt like booting usb...01:19
shurtagulI found a fix finally...01:21
xmetal hopefully i am in the market before this toshiba dies on me but really ... i'd think i'd go with (for my next "PC type purchase") another laptop01:21

ubunaxeDIL: so I've got a pretty typical ssh directory, which includes the private key of the box I'd like to log in to03:12

ubunaxeit seems pretty common to blindly say "yes" without looking03:13
ubunaxetbh I've never really thought twice03:13
ubunaxebut under what scenario would I say "no" to that prommpt?03:14
daftykinsis it not obvious?03:14

DILubunaxe: so if you were trying to ssh to my box and you wanted to know if was indeed my box i guess i would have to provide it to you03:17
bharathbubbasaures, I disabled all ppas03:20
bubbasauresbharath, Disabling does not remove packages which may be the cause, a purge of the ppa will.03:20
ubottuTo disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html03:21

bubbasauresbharath, The links generally are in /etc/apt/sources.list.d  check your sources.list in the apt folder to.03:25
bubbasauresbharath, The software & updates gui 2nd tab will have a list as well03:25
bubbasauresthats easier to understand I think03:26
bharathbubbasaures, but I removed all the entries in sources.list before and tried do-release-upgrade03:26
bharathbubbasaures, but got the same error03:26
bubbasauresbharath, Removing does not remove the modified packages and reinstall the ubuntu repos packages.03:27

bubbasauresEuaD, Ask them off topic here.03:30
Bashing-ombubbasaures: : ) . As you say revert all PPAs, that do include proprietary graphics driver, turn of any screen saver, and perhaps change the source list to " old-releases.ubuntu.com " , make sure " /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades ' is set properly. Then go for it.03:35
bubbasauresBashing-om, I only say it is a possibility, we have a no record of them, a bit to far into my red flag x time computations03:36
bubbasauresbharath, I think Bashing-om is on the right track here, I just have a short time before having to take off is all. ;)03:38

wpdDoes anybody know of a kernel level facility for "reboot on LAN", similar to the "Wake on LAN" facility?  I would like to be able to reboot my remote Ubuntu host (after having specifically enabled such a feature in the kernel or via some apt-get package.)03:38
wpdOf course, not having enabled this feature previously, I now need to physically reset the aformentioned Ubuntu host.  I would like to avoid that in the future, if posible.03:39
Bashing-ombubbasaures: I do : http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ ; I do not see 13.10 in the list. May I infer that now " old-releases.ubuntu.com " is now required to release upgrade ?03:41

hellofoobarworldhi. question. with a new computer, or when installing an os fresh, what is the best first step to take? should i secure my bootloader, or flash my bios?06:42
cfhowletthellofoobarworld, updated bios typically solves many problems ...06:43
hellofoobarworldcfhowlett: so then the very first thing to do is flash my bios? ok, and then should the bootloader be secured?06:44
cfhowletthellofoobarworld, depends on your level of paranoia.  by way of example, my library sets the boot bios (windows7) to zero display but did NOT lock it.  I insert ubuntu USB, boot, hit the bios switch after POST, select USB boot device, and I haz ubuntu.06:45
cfhowletthellofoobarworld, see how secure that is?06:46
hellofoobarworldcfhowlett: lol, i don't know, you would know better than me. i'm trying to learn heavy duty computer security, coming from not knowing much, and a windows and basic linux background.06:47
cfhowletthellofoobarworld, ah.  long story short, unsecured bootloader = unsecured machine.06:47
hellofoobarworldcfhowlett: i'm aiming for an ultra-paranoid style of system security education, since i enjoy helping people with their computer problems at my college. i only clean up computers (malware-removal and protection), but i'd like to do more for them.06:49
hellofoobarworldcfhowlett: ok, so after i've flashed the bios and secure the bootloader, the next thing do is a fresh install of their system (or preferrably, give them the linux kernel, if they'll take it)06:49
cfhowletthellofoobarworld, different scenario; Beijing Xidan District.  Official Apple Store.  Does that nice, shiny Mac run linux?  let's test ... hmm.  "kiosk mode" = reboot back to OSX, no privileges.  ... BUT, if you know the trick to force it, you can boot to ... bootloader!  selected "windows" insert USB (cuz osx is stupid that way), boot Ubuntu and keep a straight face when the Apple "Genius" comes to look over your shoulder ... :)06:50
hellofoobarworldcfhowlett: lol, i don't think that was an answer to my question, but rather just a funny scenario you were thinking of, yes? or am i wrong - were you answering my question by saying that?06:52
cfhowletthellofoobarworld, you could do "OEM" install, meaning you set up all the updates.  when NewUser boots, s/he will be asked to select an account name and password.  then they boot to their nice, updated *buntu.06:52

lasserix_Hello, I'm trying to set up a LAN using a switch, I don't care about external internet connection. Just want multiple machines to talk to eachother with static ips--can anyone point me to a guide on how to do this?08:00
llutzlasserix_: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/network-configuration.html08:03
wafflej0ck_lasserix_: if it's an auto-sensing switch (which most are) you'll just need to configure static IPs for the clients and plug em all in08:10
lasserix_that so far has not work08:11
bet0xThere is bounty for systemd?08:11
wafflej0ck_lasserix_: you have the same subnet for all of em and same subnet mask?08:11

aeon-ltdjuned: what do you want to learn?08:35
cfhowlett!flavors | juned08:35
ubottujuned: !Ubuntu-GNOME, !Kubuntu, !Xubuntu and !Lubuntu are simply flavors of Ubuntu that come with GNOME, KDE, Xfce, and LXDE (respectively) installed as default, instead of Unity. Other specialized flavors of Ubuntu include !Edubuntu, Ubuntu !Studio, and !Mythbuntu.08:35
junedi am learn Linux and clear concept about networking08:36
cfhowlettjuned, install ubuntu-server08:37
cfhowlett!server | juned08:37
ubottujuned: Ubuntu Server Edition is a release of Ubuntu designed especially for server environments, including a server specific !kernel and no !GUI. The install CD contains many server applications. Current !LTS version is !Trusty (Trusty Tahr 14.04) - More info: http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/serveredition - Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/14.04/serverguide - Support in #ubuntu-server08:37

wafflej0ck_juned: ^08:37
lasserix_so i have set up static networking between two computers connected by a switch, and added a third. incremented the ip, everything else being equal. it's unable to ping either... any idea of why?08:37
wafflej0ck_lasserix_: getting lights on both ends of the ethernet for good physical connection?08:38
wafflej0ck_lasserix_: I ask because cables or ports can sometimes stop working and with such a simple setup there isn't a ton else that can fail08:39
frendaIs there any ppa for telegram-desktop?08:39
aeon-ltdfrenda: i think google would be better than here to find one08:40
wafflej0ck_lasserix_: the switch basically just broadcasts messages to all ports if it doesn't know where an IP is and once it gets a response on one of the ports it remembers that the connection on that port is whatever the computer sent as it's source IP with the outgoing message, so it dynamically builds a table over time of what ports correspond to what IPs08:40
ubottuThe Ubuntu Manual will help you become familiar with everyday tasks such as surfing the web, listening to music and scanning documents. With an emphasis on easy to follow instructions, it is suitable for all levels of experience. http://ubuntu-manual.org/08:40

junedok guys i am download Ubuntu o.s08:42
junedand why this chat close and quit08:42
junedwhen i close xchat08:42
wafflej0ck_lasserix_: not really a managed switch (higher end stuff) you can get in there and configure things but auto-sensing consumer stuff typically you just power it off and power it on to reset the tables if something is going screwy08:42
hemlisSup Ubuntu08:42
auronandacejuned: xchat is the irc client, if you quit xchat then you are quitting irc08:43
wafflej0ck_lasserix_: I would double check the ip config stuff, then try moving the cable that doesn't seem to be working to another port, also try another cable if available, then try resetting the switch as a last resort08:44
wafflej0ck_lasserix_: if none of that works would start looking into dmesg or other logs to see if there's any info on the machine that isn't working that indicates something about the ethernet connection08:45

=== zz_XeBlackWater is now known as XeBlackWater
dbuggerBen64, How can I know if I am using them or not?09:50
Ben64well if you had to install nvidia-settings.... you probably aren't09:51
wafflej0ck_dbugger: go to the additional drivers panel09:52
wafflej0ck_dbugger: just search for it in the dash09:52
dbuggerwafflej0ck_, I already did. Nothing comes up. It say that no additional drivers were found.09:52
wafflej0ck_dbugger: hmm well that's suspect... you can install them using apt-get do sudo apt-get install nvidia (don't hit enter, hit tab twice) you'll see different versions of the driver available from the repository, the alternative is installing from the binary from Nvidia but then rollback isn't as easy since you can't just purge a package09:55
ztaneanyone knows if western digital black2 ssd+hd disk works in ubuntu? (since most of the data would point to it not working)09:55
wafflej0ck_dbugger: I have a 670 and it shows up in the additional drivers panel though so not sure what's up there09:55
dbuggerwafflej0ck_, wafflej0ck_ so I should install "nvidia-331"? That is the latest I see.09:56
Ben64dbugger: probably need to get a newer one for the 97009:57
wafflej0ck_yea you can give it a shot, if you end up losing X check out nomodeset you can just set this in grub by hitting e and putting nomodeset in place of quiet09:57
wafflej0ck_!nomodeset | dbugger09:57
ubottudbugger: 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 parameter09:57
dbuggeri will give it a try. If not, I will try the one from the website09:58
dbuggerDo I need to restart after installing it?09:58
Ben64dbugger: don't try the one from the website09:58

wafflej0ckQueensMelons: yup that GUI app is actually pretty nice works well too10:12
PCatineanwould this be a good resource?10:13
wafflej0ckPCatinean: I typically use Clonezilla, gives you a bootable CD for running DD over a network to a shared location10:13
bekksdaniel_123: PXE has no scripts. Are you using kickstart or seed files?10:13
daniel_123redhad / centos im using KS but deb and ubuntu see files10:14
daniel_123looking for the deb version of this https://github.com/russki/hpraid-chroot10:14
PCatineanwafflej0ck, okay thanks10:14
wafflej0ckPCatinean: Clonezilla gives you a simple interface to backup the entire disk and restore the entire disk or to backup indvidual partitions and restore them, figuring out the network part is the only thing that can be a little tricky but it helps out and if you get an error just Google what settings you need for your NAS or whatever, if it's all in one machine should be easy10:15

=== Hub is now known as Guest93429
daniel_123that will hopefully do the trick as the raid needs to be done before the OS for obvious reasons10:17

wafflej0ckPCatinean: ah hmm10:18

wafflej0ckPCatinean: yeah well I just use duplicity cause of the GUI supplied with it in this distro/Desktop Environment10:21
wafflej0ckPCatinean: rsync is simpler for just copying things incrementally and can recover if it gets stopped half way through or whatever10:21
PCatineanActually I do have a automatic backup being made by duplicity on each boot from my ssd to my hdd in the caddy10:21
wafflej0ckjuned: it's just how IRC clients display if someone has typed your name in the line to get your attention10:22
wafflej0ckPCatinean: typically I use Clonezilla before major upgrades though and then once after I have everything stable on a new version10:22

wafflej0ckPCatinean: yup looks reasonable, don't know all those flags by heart but should work10:23
* PCatinean goes in10:23
PCatineanshould also use sudo10:24
PCatineanI guess10:24
wafflej0ckyeah, I'd suggest just backing up the things you think you probably need like /etc/ and your home folder (all your . folders and files) with rsync then do a clonezilla snapshot of the whole drive and go with the upgrade10:25
wafflej0ckyou can stitch back together the tar file of the drive that clonezilla makes if you have enough space but can take some time/effort to work that out10:27
PCatineanBy upgrade you mean actual upgrade from the system or format and install new system?10:27
wafflej0ckPCatinean: usually I like to clean install but upgrades have gotten better (still not perfect usually)10:28
wafflej0ckfrom 12.04 I went up to 14.04 and it was okay but I tried a few different desktop environments so ended up clean installing after deciding to go with Gnome for now... only regret is I don't have the latest Gnome :)10:30
wafflej0ckalways be prepared to wipe it out at least though, that's why I dig the clonezilla backups, makes me feel good to know I can always just load it back up and at most will take like an hour10:31

cogThe disk spins but doesn't get listed in a fdisk -l12:34
ikoniacog: unplug the usb, reboot your machine plug it in and see if it gets detected12:35
cogdid that plenty already, no luck12:35
ikoniacog: so either the ubs connection is broken, or the disk is dead12:36
cogfdisk only show actual partitions, right? So how do I see if the disk itself is being detected regardless of whether it can read the partition table?12:36

=== tcpman is now known as Guest69277
wafflej0ckpaul_: you can create a runnable script and add it to your PATH in your environment typically that's the easiest way you can also make shortcuts to run the script if you'd like13:23
wafflej0ckpaul_: personally I have a ~/scripts folder I made and added to my PATH so I just pop open a guake terminal and run the command13:24
EriC^^esseks: i think it's possible13:24
paul_wafflej0ck, to get more specific: My command is "mupen64plus N64/Kirby64.z64" - How do i get a shortcut out of this?13:24
EriC^^you have to sign the .efi file with sbsign http://www.rodsbooks.com/efi-bootloaders/secureboot.html13:24
digigrampaul_ like an alias?13:25
wafflej0ckpaul_: just write into a text file and save it like runKirby.sh go to the file properties and mark it as executable13:25
EriC^^paul_: what do you mean by shortcut?13:25
EriC^^like a launcher icon?13:25
paul_EriC^^, yes13:26
wafflej0ckpaul_: see http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/516634-shell-script-desktop-shortcut for making the executable shell script runnable by double clicking instead of opening it13:26
esseksEriC^^, so the -signed kernel is useless in my use case?13:26
paul_EriC^^, Like a shortcut on the desktop13:26
wafflej0ckpaul_: http://askubuntu.com/questions/299052/how-to-execute-sh-script-from-a-desktop-shortcut13:26
EriC^^paul_: go to /usr/share/applications and make a .desktop file using a file that's there, modify the Exec part to your command and then add it as usual to the launcher13:26
paul_Thanks guys, you helped me out once again! I owe you big time13:26
wafflej0ckpaul_: ah yeah what EriC^^said is true too can just make a .desktop file with the Exec set with your command, that is probably a cleaner way to go13:27

EriC^^paul_: you need to add the full path btw13:32
EriC^^paul_: /home/<user>/..N64/Kirby64.z6413:33
EriC^^esseks: no idea, never tried it, i think you need to make a .efi file like grub's shimx64.efi or something13:33
paul_I assume you mean it should be "mupen64plus /home/paul/N64/Kirby64.z64". But nothing happened13:34

T0ast_phoneUgh, now the system settings window keeps crashing every time I open it13:38
T0ast_phoneI'm trying to get to text entry settings13:39
paul_EriC^^, saved the command line as a .desktop file and it says an error occured13:39
EriC^^paul_: you have to use a template from /usr/share/applications , and save it there too13:40
T0ast_phoneHow do I get directly to the text entry settings?13:40
EriC^^paul_: type gksu nautilus /usr/share/applications13:41

hellofoobarworldbekks: i volunteer my time to people at school, fixing their computer. i have been "securing" them as well (encrypting, anti-keyloggers, getting them password managers instead of browsers, etc), but i have recently learned that my efforts have been mostly vain, as there are ways to circumvent this security (with bootkits being one of them, as well as hardware modifications). i'm trying to learn everything i can so that i ca14:33

AlexPortablehow can I solve it? should i just ditch ubuntu?14:34
bekkshellofoobarworld: That doesnt answer my question at all.14:34
cfhowlettAlexPortable, without knowing why it's failing ?  don't seem right, but your choice.14:34
bekkshellofoobarworld: tor can be considered being snake oil, in terms of security.14:34
AlexPortablecfhowlett: well what can I do more?14:35
hellofoobarworldbekks: what am i trying to accomplish? give people a method, and instruct them on how to implement full security in every day use. that's my goal, at least.14:35

hellofoobarworldbekks: so then for every day use on their desktop computers (i doubt they'd all run live usbs all the time), is simply using a VM the best option?14:36
g405tI think I got this14:36
bekkshellofoobarworld: Then why do you suggest using tor? That has nothing to do with security. It's the opposite even, using tor, makes them being suspects from the point of view of different agencies, companies, etc.14:36

themisterbigwhen i type sudp apt-get update i get E: Unable to locate package firmware-b43-installer17:08
themisterbigsorry without the firmware-b43-installer17:08
themisterbigpepijndevos: it just started updating, not sure what i did different, i just typed it until it worked :-/ strange, updating  now17:10
epyxhi guys17:10
pepijndevosok, do update and then upgrade and then try the broadcom driver again.17:10
epyxso just to let you know, you should remove the 7730 M fglrx support for the additional drivers17:10
epyxthey don't work17:10
pepijndevosepyx, you should create an issue. Not likely anyone relevant will notice and take action if you just tell it here.17:11
ikonialots of documentation to suggest the 7730 do work17:11
themisterbigthanks pepijndevos17:12
pepijndevosand yea, eliminate PEBKAC17:12
pepijndevosthemisterbig, np17:12
epyxpepijndevos, how do I do that?17:12
epyxikonia, not possible17:13
ikoniaepyx: why is that not possible ?17:13
epyxafter two distributions and several fresh installs I have never gotten them working17:13
epyxthey do install, sometimes17:13
epyxbut what happens is 3D acceleration isn't better than without them17:13
ikoniaepyx: so you - 1 person can't get them working does not mean "others can't get them working"17:13
ikoniaepyx: as I said, info to suggest others are working fine17:14
epyxit's hard to tell if you don't play games17:14
epyxI thought they were working too17:14
ikoniaI don't think it is17:14
epyxbecause fglrxinfo and lspci gave right information17:14
ikoniaunity desktop requires 3d acceleration17:14
ikonialspci is nothing to do with the drivers17:14
epyxikonia, well, it's a dual card so the Intel HD 4000 works just fine without installing the properitary drivers17:15
pepijndevosepyx, if it does not crash and it's installed, it's working fine. If it's not faster than the OSS drivers, that's great.17:15
ikoniaepyx: so ?17:15
epyxpepijndevos, 30 fps in CS:GO and 20 fps in Civilization V tells another story17:15
epyxif it works fine then Linux is really inefficient compared to Windows17:15
epyxif that's working fine17:15
ikoniaepyx: you're basing your individual experience and confirming it as fact for everyone else17:15
epyxthe main problem with these drivers are that they are shown as installed fine17:16
ikoniaepyx: you don't know that17:16
epyxI mean great if it gives an error message but it doesn't17:16
pepijndevosepyx, yea, linux ports of games are not so great at times.17:16
ikoniaepyx: you judged they where installed ok by "lspci"17:16
ikoniaepyx: that means nothing17:16
epyxand fglrxinfo17:17
epyxand amdcccle17:17
ikoniaepyx: if fglrxinfo shows the acceleration, then they are working17:17
epyxwhat is your definition of working seriously?17:17
ikoniaepyx: hardware 3d acceleration17:17
epyxif something is supposed to provide 3d acceleration but doesn't it clearly isn't working as it's intended to17:17
ikoniaepyx: how are you confirming it's not running 3d acceleration17:18
epyxas bad FPS as without them?17:18
ikoniaepyx: thats not confirming no acceleration17:18
ikoniathats just poor performance17:18
pepijndevosepyx, if I read you correctly, you judge "not working" as slower than windows.17:18
epyxback in 2009 I had another ATI Radeon card which worked great17:18
ikoniaa lot has changed17:18
* epyx sighs17:19
epyxso as long as you get a string telling you that it works it's fine?17:19
epyxyou don't really need to see improved performance17:19
epyxhey as long as this string says everythings fine!17:19
ikoniaepyx: sadly thats the reality17:19
ikoniasome cards work better/worse than others17:19
ikoniathere are settings you can use to try to improve things, but that requires good knowledge of the drivers and options17:20
epyxso basically as a developer I don't need to do anything but cout << "everything's fucking awesome";17:20
ikoniaepyx: no need to swear, please don't17:20
epyxsorry :x17:20
pepijndevosepyx, that is sadly true. It was recently discovered there was a switch in the intel driver that made it 20% faster... they just disabled it because it had some issues, instead of fixing the issues.17:22
jhutchinsThere are lots of different implementations of Radeon hardware.  Even the same chipset might not perform the same depending on how it was implemented.17:22
epyxoh well17:23
xsuhi all17:24
jhutchinsepyx: Some hardware is optimized for Windows and just isn't going to perform in Linux.17:24
epyxguess I'll have to live with poor performance till I scrap this computer :<17:24
jhutchinsepyx: You can find reviews and benchmarks that show what hardware does well in Linux.17:24
epyxadvice noted, thanks17:24
jhutchinsepyx: Toms Hardware and Ars Technica tend to be good sources.17:24
jhutchinsepyx: Also, there are developers that are constantly working to improve the performance, because they have the same problem as you do.17:25
epyxjhutchins, some day I hope to gathered the skills to contribute instead of only complaining ;)17:29
epyxbut in the meantime... :p17:29
Carogahi all!17:31

CarogaHow should I do that (intel drivers?)?17:31
VoidMainFunctionanybody here17:32
VoidMainFunctionUbuntu question17:32
CarogaVoidMainFunction, sup ?17:33
zykotick9Caroga: can i ask, why do you think you need to update your intel drivers?17:33
VoidMainFunctionupgrading my processor, my roommate did the same changeout last month, told me afterwards, he lost his bootloader17:33
VoidMainFunctionwhen he reseated the processor17:33
Carogazykotick9, Cause I want to. I am trying to run Hearthstone through Wine and it doesnt run well.17:34
ikoniathat wont happen17:34
CarogaSo I wanted to ask more information about updating glx drivers17:34
CarogaVoidMainFunction, so you are afraid of losing your bootloader?17:34
CarogaWhy would you lose ur bootloader after installing another cpu ? Sounds more like he upgraded/changed bios as well who lost the bootloaders point.17:35
VoidMainFunctionyeah, I run a newer board. uefi BS....I remember having a bitch of a time to get the grub bootloader to work on my orig install 2 years ago17:35
VoidMainFunctionand then he told me that and i got annoyed17:35
CarogaVoidMainFunction, that wont be a problem, just remember which hd entry points you have and where your bootloader is installed. If, for some reason, he cannot find it anymore, you can always boot ur liveCD and scan vor it.17:36
Carogabrb dinrar time!17:36
VoidMainFunctionCaroga: thanks17:37
=== Errosion is now known as help
jhutchinsVoidMainFunction: Changing the processor shouldn't have any effect on the bootloader, which is on the disk.17:40
jhutchinsVoidMainFunction: It could possibly trigger a change in the EFI, which could cause the system to see the disk differently.17:41
jhutchinsVoidMainFunction: Then again, fixing the bootloader is one of the easiest fixes there is.  Make sure you have a live CD or something to boot from and you're covered even if it does happen.17:41

bubbasauresviva clonezilla ;)18:42
worblebubbasaures: What do you mean by clone? rsync was my "clone"18:43
bubbasauresworble, I mean I clone the whole OS rsync is a transfer, abstractly a clone yes.18:44
bubbasauresworble, Seems, I may be guessing that you have just taken a much harder road than needed but you may be trying to learn.18:45
worblebubbasaures: I don't think that would work for me, I want both drives accessible at the same time. In any case that wasn't the approach I chose, copying files is pretty basic and should work18:46

worblebubbasaures: Like, I should be able to see both drives at all times18:47

bubbasaurestriss, Make sure you image that windows off the computer if it really matters to you asap.18:56
trissyou mean backup?18:56
worblerypervenche: Yeah I guess not. Anyway a low-level copy like that seemed more risky and that view was shared by at least one other person on #btrfs18:56
bubbasaurestriss, I would image/clone it, you have at least one free if pro or below, cover your booty is the point any thing can happen.18:57
worbleworble: In any case, I don't think doing an rsync is unreasonable; It's not obviously much worse than any alternatives18:57

rypervencheworble: But it depends what you want out of the backup. If you just want the files, then rsync is fine. If you want to be able to easily use a new hard drive, dd is the way to go (with a higher than normal bs for better transfer speeds)19:00

daftykinsag4ve_: should, but maybe you have a bad burn... maybe the download was corrupt, maybe your drive is faulty... yada yada19:42
ActionParsnipag4ve_: did you MD5 test the ISO you burned?19:42

ActionParsnipag4ve_: did you burn the DVD as slowly as possible?19:43
ag4ve_nah, just cdrecord -v ....19:43
daftykinsspeed is irrelevant when verifying - *if* you verify :)19:43

ag4ve_huh, wouldn't've thought of that, but i think md5sum /dev/sr0 is the way to go19:46
ag4ve_though i guess i should check whether ubuntu does md5 or sha before wasting time..19:47
ActionParsnipag4ve_: you'll need to mount the ISO then run:  md5sum MD5SUMS      I think it is, it will then test the data19:47

ag4ve_i guess i'll go with the second suggestion of writing a thumb drive...19:51
daftykinsag4ve_: so why server? are you actually setting up a server or using a minimal approach to install a non-unity DE?19:52
ActionParsnipquickie121: dont think you can http://man.cx/gnome-control-center19:52

yabbesi know &21:31
yabbesbut it still ends the process when i close the terminal21:31
yabbeswhere i made it run21:31
ActionParsnipyabbes: yes because the parent pocess of the thing you run, is the terminal21:31
yabbesyeah, ActionParsnip21:31

ActionParsnipzacwalls: try another keyboard22:43
zacwallsi did22:43
ActionParsnipzacwalls: can you navigate the bios ok?22:44
daftykinsguys can you determine whether this is a laptop or what, i'm getting sick of asking22:44

coolstarIntel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA Controller])23:23

MDTech-us_MANI installed the apt package23:23
coolstarActionParsnip: I really want compiz just for the blur plugin :/23:24

bubbasauresarooni-mobile, think about it for a minute.23:35

arooni-mobileits purely a keyboard or a keyboard controller issue23:35

bubbasauresarooni-mobile, It is a variable test, you start there looking for the answer.23:36

bubbasauresyabbes, the ubuntu desktop unity yes.23:41
yabbesyeah in unity23:41

coolstarActionParsnip: compiz seems to run pretty nicely on this $200 laptop though23:41
ActionParsnipcoolstar: is it not in gnome shell (for example)23:41
coolstarActionParsnip: I use xfce though23:42
pedahzurHave an odd one I've not seen before.  According to the output of dpkg -L lighttpd, the files files /etc/cron.d/lighttpd and /etc/logrotate.d/lighttpd should exist.  However, those files are not in place after an apt-get install.  I even tried re-installing, and they still aren't there.  This is 14.04.1. Ideas?23:42

Kira9204its been a long time since i had any issues with unity, but fullscreen applications in particular have had a history of bad behaviour23:42
Kira9204i personally think Cannonical should had went with something in the style of Luna/Elementary OS tho23:44
ActionParsnipOr dtuck to the same as gnome. .23:44
HerrBananoanyone care to help me with some questions about unity and maybe switching it to gnome?23:46
bubbasauresHerrBanano, You can have both unity the gnome shell and fallback.23:47

=== l2ksolkov_ is now known as l2ksolkov
ActionParsnipcinimoon: did you upgrade from precise to trusty?23:47
HerrBananognome shell is unity with the look of gnome, correct?23:47
ActionParsnipHerrBanano: it uses mutter as WM instead of Compiz23:48
bubbasauresHerrBanano, Not quite unity is on top of gnome 3 unity is a plugin in compiz the shell is the gnome 3 desktop23:48
HerrBananoso the fallback is just bare gnome as-is, am i right?23:49
cinimoonActionParsnip: barley, I went through many partial upgrades of quantal,raring,and saucy to get here (videocard issue)23:49
bubbasauresHerrBanano, A pseudo gnome 2 is the look23:49
bubbasauresHerrBanano, pics all over the web and info.23:49

LinuxGoldI am seeing strange behavior with sudo su23:50
LinuxGoldwhen I sudo su, it hangs.  when I used ctrl d, it successfully went into root23:51
cinimoonActionParsnip: still nosound23:51
bubbasauresLinuxGold, try sudo -i really not often is this needed23:51
squintyHerrBanano:  might want to check out   gnome-session-flashback  description.  it can be installed without uninstalling unity and selected as an alternate desktop from the lightdm log in23:52
ActionParsnipLinuxGold: or sudo -s23:52
LinuxGoldnever had problem with sudo su until now that it changed somehow23:52
ActionParsnipcinimoon: if you run: alsamixer ,are all levels maxed and unmuted?23:52
LinuxGoldsudo -s works -- but sudo -i have same effect as sudo su23:53
coolstarActionParsnip: wow turns out they removed the blur plugin from compiz :/23:53
HerrBananoi found that option, but i don't want to have to select a desktop every time i boot. squinty23:53
bubbasauresLinuxGold, general linux command not really at home in ubuntu23:53
HerrBananoany workaround for that?23:53
coolstarok back to compton/xf4wm4 it is23:53
squintyHerrBanano: once you select it the first time it will become the default desktop23:53

HerrBananomaybe pm if that's easier cause i realise this is a bit of a noob question23:53
HerrBananoah thanks23:53
HerrBananothat s probably all i need to know23:54
bubbasauresHerrBanano, When you have more than one desktop, the login defaults to the one running on shutdown.23:54
HerrBananomy laptop-turned-desktop is turning into a bit of a dinosaur and i feel unity isn t contributing to it's performance23:54
squintyHerrBanano:  I had it installed on another box for awhile... didn't run into any problems with it. :)23:54
ActionParsnipLinuxGold: why not prefix the commands you want to run as root, with sudo23:55
bubbasauresHerrBanano, You might want to lighter than like lubuntu.23:55
ActionParsnipLinuxGold: it has a grace period so you don't need to type your password for every command23:55
HerrBananotbh if it wasn' t for ubuntu this thing would've gone out the window 3 years ago23:55
ActionParsnipHerrBanano: there are plenty of other distributions. Many existing before Ubuntu23:56
cinimoon ActionParsnip: nothing muted. master and headphone maxed. PCM near maxed to green (not red)23:56
squintyHerrBanano:  might also want to consider the MATE desktop23:56
HerrBananoi'm aware of that ActionParsnip, thanks though23:56
ActionParsnipcinimoon: use F6 to switch devices.  Scroll hard to the right23:56
ActionParsnipHerrBanano: so, you could have installed one of those instead of Ubuntu if Ubuntu didn't exist23:57
bubbasauresmore linux OS's than our local planet groups and their moons by a long shot.23:58
HerrBananofirst distro i tried was ubuntu and since it has always worked perfectly for me i haven't tried anything else, ActionParsnip.23:59
coolstarwow this is impressive23:59
HerrBananowell that was unfortunate23:59
coolstarxubuntu uses less disk space than chrome os23:59
