nicol2hi. I have a stats project where I use java to load in about 400mb to ram by sequentially opening roughly 7000 files in a directory. it seems whenever I do this, kubuntu freezes during the next boot and i have to reinstall the OS02:15
* tekkbuzz recommends not doing that.02:28
tekkbuzznicol2: I would do a mem test.02:30
nicol2do i reinstall the operating system and then do a memtest, or boot up in recovery mode terminal and do a mem test?02:31
nicol2right now it freezes on the "kubuntu" loading screen02:31
tekkbuzzshould be an option in your grub menu.02:32

shiggitayhey all...05:47
shiggitayI've been trying to install Kubuntu 14.10 on my Baytrail tablet.... I had it going, but then stupid me decided to try out a 15.04 daily build, and now I can't get 14.10 running again....05:47
shiggitay^ ^ ^ More detail05:48
valorie14.10 on a tablet is impressive05:48
shiggitayit ran pretty well too05:49
valorietrying 15.04 daily sounds .... slightly insane05:49
valorielike jumping off a cliff05:49
shiggitayI like its new UI05:49
valorieI'm glad you are still laughing05:49
valoriewell, how about doing ppa-next on 14.10 then?05:49
shiggitaythough it was initially running on an SD card05:50
* valorie is doing that on this laptop and running plasma 5 daily05:50
shiggitayso I wanted to see how it'd run on onboard flash05:50
shiggitayvalorie, so I just now reinstalled 14.10, but whatever I do I can't get it to load grub to load the US.... my LiveUSB stick has two additional folders on it that I added... would that f up anything?05:51
valoriedid you make it with persistence?05:51
shiggitayI didn't use Unetbootin05:52
valoriethen yes, it probably did05:52
shiggitayI used something called 'Rufus'05:52
valoriehowever, you can check by doing a md5sum05:52
ubottuTo verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows05:52
valoriealways good to do that anyway05:52
shiggitaydid it for some reason not flag my boot partition as bootable or something?05:53
shiggitayI have two EFI boot entries labled as "ubuntu" and none of them boot05:54
shiggitayI guess I could redownload the ISO and reimage it to my USB stick05:54
valoriewell, you can md5sum the ISO05:56
valorieno need to re-download unless it is corrupt/incomplete05:56
valoriethis is why I try to always torrent ISOs05:56
valoriektorrent at least always verifies the files05:57
shiggitaytrying a TORRENT05:57
shiggitaystupid crapslock05:57
=== kevin is now known as Guest99143
valorieshiggitay: if you already have your ISO, you don't have to re-download it05:59
valorieonce the torrent begins, ask your client to verify the image05:59
shiggitaytoo late06:00
shiggitayreDL in process :P06:00
valoriejust ensure you are using the correct path to the ISO file you already have06:00
valorieit's never too late06:00
valorieI seed all the *buntu torrents, so no matter what you want, it will be available06:02
valorieall current releases, that is06:02
shiggitayokay I verified it... no issues06:03
* shiggitay reimages06:03
shiggitaygah brb06:04
shiggityReinstall in progress06:32
shiggityannnd I still can't get it to boot.... wtf06:38
shiggityvalorie, ...anyone?06:38
valoriejust... nothing happens?06:41
shiggityI think it could have to do with my tablet only support 32bit EFI booting06:44
shiggitybut when I use a 32bit image it refuses to boot, even with a custom compiled grub.efi made for x86 vs x86-6406:45
shiggityI copied over my bootia32.efi file to my boot partition, but it still doesnt work06:50
shiggitymaybe I forgot to run update-grub?06:51
shiggityif that's even possible to do on a liveUSB?06:52
shiggityOkay now I'm trying to install again but I manually made partitions... maybe it was a partitions issue06:59
shiggityOkay so I decided to boot up a 32 bit ISO with my added grub image, and it only boots if I boot the initramfs, but I can't get it to boot the installer07:25
shiggityI have to manually set up grub when it boots btw07:25
shiggityi.e. set root=(hd0,1 etc07:25
lordievaderGood morning.08:01
shiggityokay well it seems that the 14.10 installer decides to finish prematurely (i.e. right when it's installing Grub2). How would I properly install Grub2 manually?08:29
shiggityvalorie, anyone?08:29
shiggitayaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I'm trying to reinstall YET AGAIN but this time with a different USB OTG cable08:50
shiggitayI hope it doesn't crap out when installing Grub >_>08:50
shiggitayI think that's my problem08:50
nicol2hi. I have a stats project where I use java to load in about 400mb to ram by sequentially opening roughly 7000 files in a directory. it seems whenever I do this, kubuntu freezes during the next boot and i have to reinstall the OS. i tried memtest and there were no errors08:51

I mean I can still move my mouse but the desktop doesn't respond and the only way I could figure out of getting it back is to jump out of the desktop and jump back in (ctrl alt f8 and ctrl alt f7 for kubuntu). Am I missing something here, what's going on?12:56

mparillotriss: I use slight RGB hinting when fonts get ugly (most frequently on other distros).15:34
trissthat's what I've just turned on. seems a lot better, but still a touch blurry. Unity and Windows don't seem to have this issue on this machine15:36
mparillotriss: I cannot tell you exactly what causes it, but sometimes an update can make my fonts much uglier. I sometimes give up, and do a fresh install, and for some reason the fonts get prettier One of the initial attractions of *buntu to me has been better fonts out of the box than Fedora or OpenSUSE.15:40
Walex2mparillo: "fresh install" is something that is essentially never necessary with decent package managers and configurations systems like (so far) in GNU/Linux.15:44
Walex2mparillo: as to the fonts it is a complicated issue, with two/three big sides: whether the fonts have good hinting, whether antialiasing/autohinting are enabled, whether you are using X11 or FontConfig.15:45
Walex2mparillo: "slight RGB hinting" is not quite right: there are different types of hinting, and different tyupes of antialiasing.15:46
Walex2triss: I have good recommendations, but they are not popular...15:46
sacardeis possible to install neon5-latest.iso by text based installer?15:47
Walex2triss: the important details are: 1) set the right DPI for the screen. 2) use well-hinted fonts e.g. the Microsoft web fonts. 3) don't use antialiasing therefore. 4) if you use antialiasing use gray-levels only, not color-filtered. 5) well-hinted '.ttf' fonts don't require autohinting. '.pfb' fonts instead autohint quite well, on full hinting.15:49

Walex2BTW my tastes are relatively unpopular because I like well hinted antialised fonts in largish sizes on light backgrounds. Most "geeks" seem to like antialiased fonts in tiny sizes on dark backgrounds.15:55
sacardewhich is the name of ubuntu text installer ?15:55
Walex2sacarde: depends! 'debian-installer' or 'deboostrap' for example15:56

sacardewhich are different between neon and kubuntu ?16:12

sacardeok genii ... thanks16:13
sacardebut which is the name of text installer?16:13
sacardethat you have inserted in kubuntu ?16:14
geniiThe default installer is called Ubiquity.16:14
sacardegraphical, no?16:15
Walex2yahyaa: our psychic advisors are busy on other astral dimensions. Please wait...16:16
geniisacarde: The text installs are done with debian-installer16:17
genii( or d-i for short)16:17
geniisacarde: The thing is you can't really run that by itself, it needs an extensive preseed file16:18
sacardewith : debconf ?16:18
geniisacarde: Your likely best option is to use debootstrap. However, the arguments to put into debootstrap would not be the standard Ubuntu ones if you're using Neon. So in this case you'd still need to ask around in the Neon channel, or look for Neon-specific help on forums or internet at large16:20
sacardegenii, thanks a lot16:21
geniiyahyaa: If you've manually mounted the device as root, then the root of it will not be writeable for regular user. You'd need to make a folder on it that the user has rights to16:21
geniiAlso if that device is an iPod they need special instructions16:22
yahyaathese are just regular flash drives @genii16:24
geniiyahyaa: In this case, they should automount and be writeable for normal user. If your file is larger than 4G it will break the file size limit on them and not be able to copy16:26
yahyaaI don't think I have mounted them as root, don't even know how to do that I don't think16:26

BluesKajpafurijaz, just delete the natron.sh package from kubuntu18:15
buriedalivepafurijaz tell , how to get a package natron for your os?18:16
buriedalivemaybe in terminal - sudo aptitude purge ~nnatron ?18:20
pafurijaz@buriedalive  Grazie per l'attenzione, il pacchetto è stato preso dal sito http://sourceforge.net/projects/natron/  ed viene intallato automaticamente come in Windows..18:20
pafurijaz@BluesKaj Natron also created the icon in the menu graphics18:22
pafurijaz@buriedalive in termina not recognize the command18:22
BluesKajpafurijaz, what is the file extension for the natron package/installer?18:23
buriedaliveBluesKaj I see 7z archive from link18:24
pafurijazThe package was taken from http://sourceforge.net/projects/natron/ and is automatically installed as in Windows. our package is a file-executable18:26
buriedalivepafurijaz show out from command - 'sudo aptitude search natron', plz18:26
BluesKajburiedalive, yes i see that, pafurijaz you probly had to compile natron with make and make install, correct? if so just run make uninstall in the directory where you installed it18:26
buriedalivepafurijaz in dir where u run 'make install' - typing 'make uninstall'18:32
pafurijazThe package is installed in the home, and when I try to delete I noted no error, but I would not do damage. I have not used any type command make .. the program is installed automatically as it does in Windows. From the terminal can not run the program, says that the command was not found .. But I have a nice icon that launches it18:32
buriedalivedownload a new source18:33
buriedaliveand run 'make uninstall'18:33
buriedalive1.  ./configure && make18:34
buriedalive2.  ./make uninstall18:34
pafurijazThis type of installation in linux I had never met. But there is no file to delete .. and with any terminal command is not found .. probably get scared unnecessarily and delete it and enough is enough!18:36
BluesKajpafurijaz, click on the composting software icon in the kmenu there will be a dialog, choose remove all components the next dia;og will give the option to uninstall18:36
