noobixgothic, install chrome00:00
GothicspeakerAnd the package manager says that Flash Player is installed, that's nice, the only problem with it is that it doesn't work00:00
GothicspeakerI already have chrome, noobix00:00
GothicspeakerThe only recommendation I can give you is to NEVER upgrade to version 1400:00
GothicspeakerYou won't be able to use Flash anymore00:00
noobixgothic, then use firefox00:00
GothicspeakerDoesn't work either00:00
k1lGothicspeaker: use pepperflash with chrome00:01
k1lGothicspeaker: and first one to blame is adobe to stop making flash for linux and the websites still using flash.00:01
Gothicspeakerk1l: I just installed pepperflash, restarted Chrome, the result is:  Flash player doesn't work00:01
Gothicspeakerk1l: But Ubuntu decided to use another framework00:02
GothicspeakerI read that at a website00:02
noobixbill must have bribed them00:02
OerHeks12.04 lts will give the same browser and flash versions00:02
GothicspeakerReason for flash player issue exclusively in Chromium:00:02
GothicspeakerThe reason why this issue occurs only in Chromium is that until now Chromium used Netscape Plugin API for Flash support. Starting from Ubuntu 14.04, Chromium will stop using Netscape Plugin API. Hence, you will face issues with Adobe Flash Player with Chromium.00:02
GothicspeakerThat's what this website says:00:02
k1lGothicspeaker: "i read some site"....00:02

notfadsssssssseric^^: there isnt00:04
Gothicspeakernow I can't use Flash anymore00:04
Gothicspeakerwhy did I have to update Ubuntu...00:04
k1lsudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree00:04
GothicspeakerAlready done that00:04
Gothicspeakerdoesn't work00:04
Gothicspeakerit still doesn't work, flash00:04

EriC^^notfadssssssss: as per thread ^^00:05
notfadsssssssseric^^: ill check00:05
k1lGothicspeaker: i am using flash in chromium and firefoxright now on 14.10 and did just 1 hour ago on a 14.04 install. so dont say it doesnt work00:05
k1lafter intsalling pepperflashplugin-nonfree do update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install --quiet00:06
GothicspeakerChuck_Norris: I did everything what you did, but the last step, freshplayer, doesn't work00:07
GothicspeakerChuck_Norris: Oh, no problem here, I didn't scroll to the top right00:08
GothicspeakerDo I need to restart?00:08
GothicspeakerFlash still doesn't show00:08
Gothicspeakerok wait, I 'll restart00:08
Chuck_NorrisGothicspeaker: just close and re-open firefox00:09
freerouteso I'm trying to free up my swap a bit I have the following swap situation (hopefully it illustrates this well) - http://kpaste.net/1b909eb3 - so can I in this can swapoff and then swapon and expect everything to be back to normal, except with a fresh swap?00:10
freerouteor do I have to apply special methods just because it's a cryptswap?00:10
GothicspeakerYes, it works for FF now00:10
GothicspeakerHow can I make it work for Google Chrome?00:10
GothicspeakerDoes it work for Chrome too?00:10
notfadsssssssseric^^: nope ;\00:10
GothicspeakerWhy do you sigh k1l?00:10
GothicspeakerIt doesn't work at Google Chrome for me.00:11
k1lGothicspeaker: i just explained and you still missusing your enter key00:11
notfadsssssssseric^^: so the issue you see is the efi shell is not reading the HDDs00:11
Chuck_NorrisGothicspeaker: well, i mah case, i am using chromium, i don't have installed chrome, but, i am having segfault in chromium, so i am only using firefox00:11
wafflej0ckGothicspeaker, regular chrome keeps it's own version of pepperflash updated shouldn't be an issue check chrome://plugins00:11
GothicspeakerBut k1l, I did exactly what you said, and it doesn't work.00:11
wafflej0ckGothicspeaker, check the URL in chrome I just posted00:12
Chuck_NorrisGothicspeaker: in chromium i can't even open the "store" or what ever its call,  bonus (just to check your flash :p):  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iNn4ilhjYE00:13
Gothicspeakerwafflej0ck: There is no Flash Player among those 3 plugins. It only says:   Chrome PDF Viewer, Chromoting Viewer and Google Talk00:13
wafflej0ckGothicspeaker, you should see the path to the shared object it's using for the flash plugin, for me it's /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so00:13
EriC^^notfadssssssss: yeah, looks like it, i'd recommend asking in #ubuntu-server as the threads that came up while searching for that error all had servers, they might know about it00:13
wafflej0ckGothicspeaker, http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/enable-flash-player-google-chrome.html <-- you can try checking out what's here, no idea why it would be disabled though00:14

ProfessorKaos64I've built pkgs on my 14.04 vm bubbasaures , just wondering do I need to be on a Utopic 14.10 machine to upload packages to Utopic or make them available, im a bit new to PPA's, still learning00:34
bubbasauresProfessorKaos64, PPA's are third party not supported here repos, any repo in general has a release tag, look at your sources.list for example00:35
ProfessorKaos64ok thank you00:35
bubbasauresProfessorKaos64, Releases outside like utopic in trusty etc are really not supported and a bad idea in general, unless you know what you're doing.00:36

Bashing-om|aaron: Have you tried "recovery" mode to see what results - maybe graphics related ?00:50
=== metallic_ is now known as metallic
|aaronbashing-om: the grub recovery option brings me to a tty console menu.. are you referring to the "failsafeX" option here?00:53

|aaronbashing-om: that gives me an error dialog about needing to configure my input devices, but mouse/keyboard dont work00:54
|aaronbashing-om: i can get to the root shell prompt though00:54
Bashing-om|aaron: At that fail safe menu, choose "resume normal boot", do you now boot to the GUI ( degraded graphics is OK at this point ) .00:55
ubnoobtuHey all, I am having an issue, I can install or u[grade anything. I just rebooted and opened snaptic manager, and got this error. http://paste.ubuntu.com/9637762/00:55
|aaronbashing-om: that gives me the same issue - black background, can move the mouse and bring up task manager but no launcher etc00:56
ubnoobtui cant*00:56
|aaronbashing-om: the only thing ive installed on here is the nvidia proprietary drivers. i guess i can try uninstalling those? they were working at first00:56
tewardubnoobtu: you didn't read the error did you?  run `dpkg --configure -a` and finish config steps there00:57
ubnoobtuit hasnt worked before, I am ju00:57
ubnoobtui am just going to try it now00:57
Bashing-om|aaron: Well, more than  justa graphics driver issue here. What graphics card(s) is installed -> sudo apt-get install pastebinit , lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga | pastebinit . To show what we are working with .01:00

iseneNeed some help in what appears to be 'up shit creek'; I am now running my pc from the Boot-Repair usb disk. I upgraded from 14.04 to 14.10 and then my Samsung NP9004X will not boot from the HD. But, the boot-repair session finds and mounts my HD (sda2) alright. I have run the boot repair and it says it repaired the boot - but still won't actually boot from the hd. Help.01:41
Bashing-om|aaron: The package manager is smart real smart. 1st is to make sure that all the former Nvidia files are gone . dpkg -l  | grep nvidia , sudo find / -name "NVIDIA-Linux-*" . If there are no files present we can continue to install from the repo .01:42
CalebWI need some help with unity and compiz(I think..) my laptop was working fine earlier today but all of the sudden I try to login and it freezes  at the bakground. I can move the mouse, but nothing else shows up.01:43
|aaronbashing-om: well im reinstalling ubuntu right now01:43
CalebWAnd it's happining to all users not hust me.01:43
|aaronbashing-om: but what do i need to do to install from the repo?01:43
Bashing-om|aaron: PK, not a problem .. when ya get done, and are less than happy with the graphics driver, let's investigate what " Additional Drivers " advocates for a graphics driver .01:44
|aaronbashing-om: ok got ya01:44
CalebWAnyone have any ideas?01:44
aspiditesspeaking of graphics drivers, what would cause video to freeze and sound to stutter/loop?01:45
aspiditesI initially thought overheating, but I'm at 52 degrees C and have read reports of pepole operating well into the 80s without issue01:45
aspiditeshello aviationcomputer01:45
Schillingisene: one idea is to check and make sure your boot order is back to hhd...01:46
CalebWI've reinstalled unity and ubuntu-desktop, but that didn't help.01:47
Schillingit *should* boot to hd if it doesn't find the USB/DVD boot in place, but you might have to tell it the boot order. Just a guess to get you started, isene.01:47
Bashing-omCalebW: Did you do an update ? Have you tried to boot with an earlier kernel ?01:47
CalebWBashing-om: No, the only package I've installed today was python-visual01:48
ubnoobtubekks: Im back if you are available01:48
Bashing-omCalebW: Hummm .. python, wonder what that might break .. hang on a bit and let me take a gander .01:49
iseneSchilling: I did put the hd on top in the boot order in the bios setup. No go. Any other ideas?01:49
CalebWBashing-om: I've already uninstalled it, but it didn't help.01:49
aspiditesdon't know what you're talking about isene, but if you're investigating boot issues, have you looked at your grub config as well?01:50
=== wrl_ is now known as bleach
Schillingisene, I gotta say that's the only one I had. aspidites has a good idea though. Check your GRUB config, and search the forums for similar issues.01:51
iseneOK. Thanks so far01:51
robert_j_p_Hi, can someone help me. I am running Ubuntu 14.04 on windows 8.1 using vitrual box 4.3.20. I am using intel 4600 HD integrated graphics card. I just installed some updates(blindly...) and my screen resolutions have been limited to a bunch of low resolutions. This happens just about every time I update anything and usually I just reinstall guest additions and it fixes it, I can then set my system back to 16:9 resolution. However 01:52
CalebWBashing-om: libboost and libgtkglex were also installed when I installed python-visual, I removed them too but it didn't help anything.01:53
ubnoobtuanyone around to help me ?01:53
robert_j_p_this time I still only have 4:3 resolutions. Any suggestions?01:53
CalebWWhat's your problem? -ubnoobtu01:54
aspiditesrobert_j_p_: http://askubuntu.com/questions/451805/screen-resolution-problem-with-ubuntu-14-04-and-virtualbox01:55
aspiditesi see you tried the chosen answer already, but perhaps the second one is of some help01:55
robert_j_p_aspidites, I have already reinstalled guest additions.01:55
aspiditeshighest voted rather, not chosen01:55
aspiditesrobert_j_p_: hence why i said to try the second option...01:56
aspiditesthe one that talks about going to system settings and x86 virtualization solutions01:56
robert_j_p_I have them enabled01:56
robert_j_p_If anything is there a way to just revert recent updates?01:57
robert_j_p_I am a programmer and I need the computer for work01:58
robert_j_p_I just want it to work again and I will update when I know what's going on01:58
aspiditesrobert_j_p_: http://forum.linuxbsdos.com/topic/201/solution-for-low-screen-resolution-in-ubuntu-14-04-ubuntu-14-10-and-virtualbox01:58
CalebWrobert_j_p_: I suppose you could do a "cat /var/log/dpkg.log | grep "\ install\ "" and uninstall all of the receant packages.01:59
aspiditesin particular, i'm wondering what the output of xrandr is01:59
william1978Hello everyone, quick question.  (And yes, I tried google, the forums and everything else before IRC).  How do I change a directory from hidden to unhidden?  (I don't mean to look at it, but to actually unhide it?)01:59
aspiditeswilliam1978: remove leading .01:59
william1978Thank you, that was my guess.01:59
CalebWwilliam1978: "mv .<dir name> <dirname>"01:59
robert_j_p_It is just a bunch of 4:3 and one 9:5 resolution01:59
robert_j_p_but it's like 1/2 of my sceen02:00
william1978Next question, will that mess up my PlayOnLinux if I do this?02:00
robert_j_p_super annoying02:00
mwsbIf it starts with a leading . (as in .hidden) remove the dot, if there is no dot, but it is still a hidden file, it's probably listed in the file .hidden, so remove the entry from that file.02:00
Bashing-omCalebW: well:  depends python-visual >> libgl1-mesa-glx libglu1-mesa. What now is the state of the package manager -> sudo apt-get update , sudo apt-get upgrade <- are any errors reported ?02:00
aspiditesnot sure. i'm tempted to run 14.04 in virtualbox to see if i can reproduce that, robert_j_p_ (i'm technically not an ubuntu user)02:00
aspiditeswhat's your native resolution, by chance?02:00
william1978We'll, there's one way to find out, thanks again.02:00
EriC^^ubnoobtu: try sudo apt-get install --reinstall libvncserver002:01
aspiditeswilliam1978: i'd look in settings to see if there's a different directory to point to02:01
robert_j_p_I think 1080 but either way it doesn't show02:01
CalebWBashing-om: I'm upgrading right now but I haven't down so in a while so it's 200+ MB02:01
robert_j_p_just some low resolutions02:01
sivikAnyone ever set up a g key using xinput for a keyboard or mouse or headset?02:01
ubnoobtuokay EriC^^02:02
Bashing-omCalebW: OK, we be patient . 1st step is always with a happy package manager .02:02
aspiditeswilliam1978: a compromise might be to make a symbolic link to the hidden folder which isn't hidden02:02
ubnoobtuEriC^^:  I got this http://paste.ubuntu.com/9637949/02:03
william1978We'll, what I am trying to do, is install DIII Latest patches, I need to point Battle.net to the directory, and thought the easiest way would be to unhide it.  It did not install properly with PlayOnLinux, but PlayOnLinux made the virtual drive for me (Which I really don't know how to do, yet) so that is why I used the gui.02:04
william1978So, the program isn't really in PlayOnLinux as an option.02:05
william1978Kind of stinks, I'm just smart enough to break things really really well!  LOL!02:05
daftykinswilliam1978: did you look for channels for PlayonLinux, or check the wine database for compatibility? both are better ideas than asking OS support02:05
william1978Ah, will do.02:06
ubnoobtuEriC^^:  Did that fix it?02:07
EriC^^ubnoobtu: ok, type ls -l /var/lib/dpkg/info/libvncserver0.list02:07

robert_j_p_let me reboot and I'll know if that was the problem02:10

numbertheoristwhen i try to log in as the superuser using the su command, the terminal won't accept my password. am i missing something?03:02
wafflej0ckioURT, Raspberry Pi can but it's at the peak of it's performance03:02
wafflej0ckioURT, and it has some decent GPU03:02
ioURTwho cares just as long as it can03:03
wafflej0ckright but with no GPU it doesn't work03:03
wafflej0ckeven with a decent relatively modern CPU03:03
ioURTits not like you will be doing anything else wile watching the movie03:03
chettikandathilnumbertheorist, can you do sudo <command>?03:03
wafflej0ckioURT, yeah but on a 3.0GHz single core it's still choppy playing back video (HD is a frame every 10 seconds or something)03:04
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest74179
ioURTsingle core has grafics?03:04
wafflej0ckwith no GPU I mean and running a regular Ubuntu 14.04 Gnome edition03:04
numbertheoristyeah, i just tried using the su command to login as the superuser(im assuming thats the root), but it wont accept my password, says authentication failed03:04
wafflej0ckioURT, no it's a piece of junk, but sayin' they still exist, almost gone but still exists, and intel graphics are good enough for stuff outside of gaming03:05
revo EriC^^  test03:05
chettikandathilnumbertheorist, if you know your password, try sudo su. it will work. with your password.03:05
ioURTwith out GPU on old single core you cant watch anything03:05
wafflej0ckyeah terrible03:05

CalebWBashing-om: What do you mean the last output we looked at?03:06
EriC^^revo: yeah it's working great03:06
|aaronbashing-om: thanks, no i doubt03:06
CalebWBashing-om: What do you mean the last output we looked at?03:06
numbertheoristso what is the superuser password, if it's not someone's main account password?03:06
|aaronanyone have any idea on how to get a quadro k2200 working with ubuntu? ive tried the installer from nvidia's site and the nvidia-current package, both give me the same result when i reboot: desktop background comes up but no menus/launcher/etc03:07
eaglesharklionthere is none unless you set one up numbertheorist03:07
wafflej0ckioURT, well I suppose saying "no graphics" was a stretch but no dedicated graphics chipset just on board junk, I threw a PCI one in there at some point but had physical problems cause of crappy case design so ended up taking it out03:07
Bashing-omCalebW: I could have my wires crossed, were we not working with an Nvidia, to install the 304.32/65 driver ?03:07
eaglesharklionyou just use sudo to run commands as root03:07
ioURTthats hoe secure ubuntu is for you03:07
ioURTanything can run with admin03:08
ioURTjust like windows03:08
numbertheoristso thats why ppl say linux is more secure than windows, everything is more locked down03:08
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, it's part of it03:08
revoEriC^^,  coming back to partition system03:09
ioURTlinux is safer from user input03:09
EriC^^revo: ok03:09
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, part of it is the size and education of the community, part of it is the system itself in terms of the kernel ring buffer and security stuff the kernel does to protect itself03:09
revoEriC^^,  go manual and then choose what ?03:09
ioURTif you are using the old distros03:09
revoEriC^^,  actually wait a sec there03:09
EriC^^revo: press on the free unallocated space, then press install there03:10
ioURTubuntu defeated that03:10
dts|pokeballsomsip, it wasnt anywhere there, but i have to step away. can i get your help when i get back maybe?03:10
revoEriC^^,  what about the grub menu...i currently dont have one installed03:10
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, there are lots of things that tend to make it more secure, it's a big focus, but as we all saw with heartbleed and shell shock and poodle and stuff it doesn't mean it's completely free of errors or vulnerabilities, but it has a good track record in general03:10
EriC^^revo: grub's installed, it just doesn't show up03:10
pixelkatthis channel is WAY more active than elementary03:10
revoEriC^^,  it just goes directly into xubuntu03:10
ioURTthe secure OS is openBSD03:11
revoEriC^^,  meaning when i install windows back it will pop up <grub> at start03:11
numbertheoristprobably being open source makes it more secure in general as exploits would be spotted more often03:11
wafflej0ckioURT, I have heard good things about BSD (listen to BSD now shows and from a few others), and seems very security focused03:11
ioURTthey just found s server exploits that date back from 198503:11
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, yeah that's part of it too, we don't know what the heck MS is doing or any other proprietary stuff03:12
pixelkatwhats best linux distro for making minecraft server?03:12
EriC^^revo: no, when you install windows it will eat grub and it will boot straight into windows03:12
ioURTits for cleaning up boot sector virus03:12
EriC^^revo: you'll have to use the live usb to reinstall grub afterwards03:12
EriC^^ioURT: like other bootloaders?03:13
ioURTif they boot virus03:13
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, a bit of it is security through obscurity too (not generally a good point but it's true) less users means a smaller target (not true on the server side though or mobile for that matter)03:13
ioURTyou could make a bootloader that would install a trojan on your BIOS03:13
revoEriC^^,  and is there a tutorial on how to re-install grub whitout afctng my current installation of xubuntu?03:14
ioURTlike a bios firmware update03:14
ioURTbut only that its a virus/trojan03:14
ioURTand with intel vpro that would work wonders03:14
wafflej0ckhello Poizon03:15
eaglesharklionwafflej0ck, what is the kernel ring buffer?03:15
EriC^^!grub | revo03:15

Darknetso i am running ubuntun on my digitalocean vps, and i want to add a ftp user to be allowed to upload stuff from a program called mircstats. I am unsure how to edit/add/remove ftp accounts. can someone explain me a little? or show me a guide? (not from 2001)03:15
revohx guys03:16
wafflej0ckeagles0513875, there are some good wikipedia articles that explain how security elevation for the kernel to access certain things differs between OS X and Windows and Linux... will let you know if I can dig it up03:16
ioURTmaking a virus/trojan that flashes it self on the BIOS its every hacker wetdream03:17
wafflej0ckeagles0513875, this one gets into it a bit but think it was a different one I read before http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microkernel03:17
ioURTeven after OS reinstall it would happily survive03:17
numbertheoristyeah, i was wondering about AV software for linux, there doesnt seem to be much03:18
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, kdenlive is nice for editing video03:18
reki007hello first time using IRC anyone can read this ?03:18
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, hydrogen is a pretty neat little music thing but think you need a ppa for that03:19
wafflej0ckreki007, yup we see you03:19
numbertheoristi meant antivirus, probably shoulve spelled it03:19
reki007wafflej0ck: :)03:19
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, ah hehe03:19
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, acronyms messing me up today :P03:19
mladouxnumbertheorist, if you don't mind doing a lot of research, blender has a lot of options that make it a good video editor, however, it has a very steep learning curve.03:19
ioURTAV is just a panacea03:19
pixelkatdid anyone asnwer my q about best linux distro for minecraft server?03:19
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, there is clamav but mostly for scanning for windows viruses, there's also rkhunter, and fail2ban (for blocking bad logins/IPs)03:20
mladouxpixelkat, anything server edition, pretty much all the same, minecraft just requires java really.03:20
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, oh yeah and lynis for checking for hardening steps you can take03:20
PolarisX|MetalStWhat about tripwire for intrusion?03:20
pixelkataye, ok03:20
Novice201yHi. Do You recommend a client for Evernote, or an alternative to it? I need an app which db could be accessed on several machines (Linux, Windows, Android).03:20
wafflej0ckPolarisX|MetalSt, have not seen that one...03:21
eaglesharklionyou don't need antivirus software on ubuntu if you only install packages signed by ubuntu... what best can be done?03:21
PolarisX|MetalStwe use it on our dedicated box03:21
ioURTyou can use the cloud to store all your files they run AV on them for you03:21
ioURTits a win win03:22
numbertheoristhmm, i might grab that lynis program03:22
revoEriC^^,  can i increase the size of my swap, the sytem created a default amount of my RAM 4gb but i wanted to have this twice the amount 8000mb03:22
EriC^^revo: it's not really needed usually03:22
numbertheoristwell, i use a flash drive between lxle and windows 7, so ill probably grab clam as well03:23
EriC^^revo: i guess you have 4gb and it made 4gb swap03:23
ioURTwindows virus dont run on linux03:23
eaglesharklionapt-get already checks every package's integrity at installation time03:23
revoEriC^^,  ok in that case...then leave it...saw a video of this girl nixie pixel, that shows to double up this size,03:23
ioURTyou can run thrm under wine03:23
PolarisX|MetalStIs that girls videos worth anything to follow or is she BS?03:24
PolarisX|MetalStI saw a few along the way.03:24
revoits ok, i guess03:24
wafflej0ckioURT, seems like a lot of work to run a virus :P but really I use it on a e-mail server, gotta scan those e-mails for your windows users03:25
ioURTcan someone kline londoncalling ?03:25
revoi dont know nothing about ubuntu and in all honesty, i feels good to follow her videos as i get to mess about with this ystem and learn with my mistakes03:25
PolarisX|MetalStSame, like I said I'm trying to manage a team but I don't know enough Linux to be hands on witht them and be the best manager I can03:25
ioURTtoo bad ubuntu doesent have snapshots03:26
numbertheoristyeah thats my main concern, i dont want a virus getting on my flash drive and then infecting my copy of windows i use on my other computer03:26
EriC^^ioURT: i think you can do that with lvm03:26
|aaronanyone have any idea on how to get a quadro k2200 working with ubuntu? ive tried the installer from nvidia's site, the nvidia-current package and sgfxi.. all give me the same result when i reboot: desktop background comes up but no menus/launcher/etc03:26
ioURTdefault install doesent use LVM03:26
revowould be great if i could insert the xubuntu installation help screen at boot...is there any way of adding that slide into my boot process ?03:26
eaglesharklionis this nixie pixel doing naked shit?03:27
EriC^^ioURT: it's an option03:27
numbertheoristnixie pixel is hot03:27
revogot really great info, actually i found out about this chat group there...i mean by pressing on the help button in that screen03:27
ioURTrevo:did the default install03:27
aaa801so.. aparantly my apt is broken03:28
revodefault install ???03:28
ioURTi was talking to EriC^^03:28
jeffrey_fnumbertheorist: You would need to put a good amount of effort into getting a virus in linux.  You can download it, but it needs specific permission to run and unlike Windows, nothing runs unless you run it (generally)03:28
ioURTyou can get it from ppas03:29
revowhat is that ppas03:29
revor u talking to me ??03:29
revodis is confusing03:30
ioURTim taslking to jeffrey_f03:30
numbertheoristi guess instead of using antivirus on linux, i could just always scan my flash drive with webroot on windows, before i use anything03:30
jeffrey_fioURT: what is ppas?03:30
pixelkatpersonal package archives03:30
numbertheoristjust to be on the safe side ;)03:30
ioURT!tell jeffrey_f about ppa03:30
ubottujeffrey_f, please see my private message03:30
pixelkatits where people host their scripts, .debs, etc.03:31
jeffrey_fioURT: I know about ppa's......just not about ppas03:31
numbertheoristmainly im using linux right now for gnu octave, as it seems to have problems on windows. my professor recommended linux, said windows is shit lol03:31
ioURTits the plural of ppa03:32
eaglesharklionyour professor is wise03:32
numbertheoristwhat is ppa? i keep seeing that term03:32
ioURTjeffrey_f: maybe you need to go back to primary03:32
numbertheoristnvm, someone answered that above me03:33
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, it's a private repository run by someone in the world, lets you get packages but isn't checked by canonical03:33
basil1xppa is a thingy that adds a private repo to apt03:33
basil1xWhat the corrugated one said.03:33
numbertheoristso theoretically ppas are more risky?03:33
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, yeah octave is interesting03:33
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, yea03:34
numbertheoristi see03:34
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, like sideloading apps on your phone03:34
jeffrey_fioURT: I got that, just temporarily confused thinking ppas was something else.....Just used to seeing acronym plurals with an apostrophe03:34
ioURTdepends on how much you trust ubuntu03:34
basil1xTheoretically.  In practice, it's hard to get by without one or two, if you're using Ubuntu for everything.03:34
numbertheoristi dont trust anyone lol03:34
numbertheoristeveryone has an agenda03:34
wafflej0cknumbertheorist, eh well you gotta trust to some degree unless you're writing your whole system03:34
Lor_M'kay...Interesting thing here. For whatever reason, Ubuntu does not seem to like my Mac's Airport hardware..03:35
ioURTi dont even trust myself03:35
numbertheoristthats true03:35
ioURTi have a calendar03:35
ioURTit commes with ubuntu03:35
brandonbullethey i need help with netflix and lubuntu 14.1003:36
ioURTah lub03:36
revois there any app that i can install that controls things like cpu, fan, memory that i can run live in my desktop?03:36
jeffrey_fif you are paranoid, ya can always grab source, inspect it, then compile it03:37
* basil1x passes over the silverfoil03:37
brandonbulleti still get the errorcode even tho libnss should be updated03:37
ioURTif you are paranoid you can make your OS from scratch03:37
numbertheoristthe truth is out there03:38
jeffrey_fThanks basil1x......03:38
basil1xLFS is not my kinda fun.03:38
ioURTi mean make your own kernel too03:38
ioURTand compiler03:38
revois there any app that i can install that controls things like cpu, fan, memory that i can run live in my desktop?03:38
=== Lor_ is now known as Loretta
eaglesharklionyou don't need to make your own, only to check the source and compile yourself03:39
numbertheoristit doesnt matter anyways, privacy has ceased to exist by and large(if it ever existed)03:39
revoany1 ???03:39
revois there any app that i can install that controls things like cpu, fan, memory that i can run live in my desktop?03:39
ioURTyou must make your compiler03:39
ioURTor read the compiler code03:40
revoiourt...r u talking 2 me03:40
ioURTand good luck with that03:40
jeffrey_fioURT: my first run in with Linux was from an installer which booted a network loader, pulled source and compiled it as it went.  At some point, a few hours later, I had a bare-bones linux box with no GUI and no software..........Just Linux03:40
numbertheoristi know an app on windows, but not on linux03:40
revoioURT,  wr u talking 2 me ?03:40
eaglesharklionproblem: what system are you going to use to do that? can you trust it? chicken and egg problem :D03:40
ioURTdo it on your own VM03:41
brandonbulletcan anyone help?03:41
eaglesharklionor hand compile (to solve the problem you mentionned)03:41
wafflej0ckeagles0513875, just start manufacturing your own chips and boards :)03:42
ioURTyou can do it using python03:42
PolarisX|MetalStWhy am I missing some system settings options? I'm on 14.10 and guides keep referencing me to settings that dont exist03:42
revois there any app that i can install that controls things like cpu, fan, memory that i can run live in my desktop?03:42
ioURTit dosent compile03:42
eaglesharklionjust directly write your OS in machine langage03:42
numbertheoristive just started learning python03:42
ioURTisnt that the way its supposed to be?03:42
revois there any xubuntu rooms here, can sum1 tell me how do i search for IRC channels03:43
ioURTthe kernel should be writen in machine code03:43
eaglesharklionit works well with other langages (like C)03:43
numbertheoristhell write it in binary03:44
eaglesharkliononly some portions in assembly03:44
eaglesharklionmachine langage is binary (not to be confused with asm)03:44
numbertheoristi see03:45
ioURTyou should be able to write a microkernel all in ASM03:45
numbertheoristi thought machine language was assembly language03:45
eaglesharklionioURT, it's hard enough in C03:45
jeffrey_frevo: do /list03:45
ioURTyou could even have difrent instaces running on difrent cores03:46
jeffrey_fasm is barely above machine language03:46
eaglesharklionnumbertheorist, asm is human readable/writable.. after assembling it results in machine code03:46
Sa[i]nTasm is barely human readable.03:46
function9xyep ^03:46
ioURTits readable bacecause binary its totally unreadable03:47
numbertheoristi see03:47
wafflej0ckyeah ASM-> machine code is a matter of mapping "human readable" like ADD, LOAD, MOVE, PUSH, POP into 0001, 0010, 001103:47
Sa[i]nTI don't know if it would be that much faster than if it was written in C.03:48
eaglesharklionwafflej0ck, that and resolving addresses, and maybe other little things...03:48
wafflej0ckeagles0513875, yeah true there are other parts to it03:48
ioURTyou dont want to use untrusted libs03:49
ioURTor libs that do way to much03:49
wafflej0ckSa[i]nT, yeah the academic point was to make a system that doesn't require you to trust others... in the case of C you have to write the compiler, I mean this is basically what RMS, Linus and friends did but just talking if you didn't trust that either, but really we all went on a far tangent, were talking PPAs originally03:50
ioURTthe more the features the more the ways to make it misbehave03:51
jeffrey_fAll languages result in machine code.  one line of C could result in 10 - 20 lines of asm03:51
eaglesharklionmake it 1-2003:51
Sa[i]nTI'd love to see an OS written in an Very High Programming Language.03:52
jeffrey_ftrue, depends on the complexity too03:52
numbertheoristidk, its all over my head at this point, im just starting to teach myself python03:52
wafflej0ckeagles0513875, what c statement becomes 1 line?03:52
function9xSa[i]nT: like C++?03:52
eaglesharkliona++; /* ah */03:52
wafflej0ckeagles0513875, don't think so that'd have to load the value of A, Add to A, and save A03:53
Sa[i]nTfunction9x, like perl, python, or Ocaml/Scala. Hell, maybe even Ruby.03:53
eaglesharkliona could be stored in a register already03:53
wafflej0ckeagles0513875, okay true I suppose, have been away from CS classes for too long03:54
function9xSa[i]nT: perl python are scripting languages.03:54
nmatrix9Anyone ever have an issue where when they tried to access a samba share through a linux app no matter what password or user account is used they always get permission denied, even when you know the password is correct?03:54
bradley23228I just hooked up dual monitors and want a new video card03:55
nmatrix9Or when you directly can access the share through a file explorer?03:55
Sa[i]nTThis is about to be 2015. Things don't have to be in assembly anymore.03:55
nmatrix9Sa[i]nT, I want my hover board03:55
wafflej0ckSa[i]nT, well most of us don't write it but it still needs to be there03:55
ioURTSa[i]nT:evey language has to translate into ASM03:56
Sa[i]nTIt should just be OS.run() by now.03:56
Sa[i]nTYeah it does.03:56
Sa[i]nTIn the end, it's all the same.03:56
wafflej0ckSa[i]nT, really a lot of stuff like Qt/QML and all the other places JS type stuff is used it really is just about as easy as you say for high level programming03:57

jeffrey_fnmatrix9: (anyone correct me if I am wrong)....Permissions are top down.  Even if permissions on a subfolder is given, you may not be able to access it if the upper level folders do not allow it.04:10
daftykinsshwaiil: there's no need to start calling me names just 'cause you can't explain yourself04:11
daftykinsnobody needs to repeatedly reinstall Windows to do development work04:11
wafflej0ckshwaiil, don't resort to name calling you may want to consider installing in a virtual environment MS even provides images for testing sites in older versions of ie04:12
shwaiildaftykins, what ? I didn't said that, that's your assumption. I'm not working for this agency that provide me with the current license and I'm officially on holidays till I start a different role in a different company04:12
daftykinsi'll tell you something, it only tends to be those doing something wrong that get so defensive so quickly.04:13
jeffrey_fnmatrix9: check the top volume permissions on down and ensure you have permissions down to the sub-folder(s)04:13
shwaiildaftykins, ok cool!04:13
shiggitayAnyone here have an HP TouchPad and have developed for it?04:13
nmatrix9jeffrey_f, yeah double checking04:13

daftykinsshiggitay: sorry, that's not ubuntu support really. HP pulled the SDK tools, but i think they can be found in some places still04:14
daftykinsshiggitay: #cyanogenmod-touchpad exists btw04:15
nmatrix9jeffrey_f, I think there may be a bug in Konqueror04:15
shiggitaydaftykins, I know but I don't want to put android on the TP04:15

jdzielnyhello everyone.  I am trying to install Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS on a system that has hardware RAID 1, and it detects the RAID but hangs at "Starting up the partitioner" every time.05:54
jdzielnyThe motherboard is an Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1 and it has Intel Rapid Storage Technology hardware RAID.  4 SATA drives configured as two RAID 1 setups05:56
jdzielnyI've searched the Net for the past few hours and can't find anything05:57
daftykinsjdzielny: that's not hardware RAID, likely won't work with ubuntu and should probably be abandoned05:57
phunyguythat is fakeraid.05:57
ubottuTips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto05:57
phunyguybasically the RAID is driver-controlled.05:58
neebsmumble stop working, when i connect to a server. 14.04 64 bit05:58
jdzielnyso basically, leave the drives all set as normal HDDs and use mdadm?06:00
jdzielnyjust install to (what I'll call for discussion) Drive 0, then afterward use mdadm to combine Drive 0 and Drive 1 into a RAID 1, then do the same with Drives 2/3?06:01
jdzielnyfollowing the directions from the page you linked to phunyguy06:03
phunyguyI have to go, cya06:04
squiglenice working netflix now :)06:06
jdzielnyphunyguy, before you go, one quick question: should the SATA mode selection for the mobo be set to RAID or AHCI if I'm doing software RAID using mdadm?06:06

MagePsychoi know that .. ./<file.sh>07:25
smikimssheer: I don't know where they got that from--I've always seeded without a static IP07:25
sheeri got that from the site and i believe i've seen it being stated before in revolutionTT's private tracker07:26
St1gmaMagePsycho, at the start of your shell file make sure you have the shebang well stated #!/bin/bash or whatever shell you are using. Then $ mv file.sh /usr/bin/file; sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/file07:26
smikimssheer: I don't think there's any way for them to tell if you have a static IP or not07:26

St1gmaMagePsycho, I normally create a /usr/local/scripts directory where I still all my custom stuff then I symlink to /usr/bin07:29
lotuspsychjecfhowlett: morning07:29
St1gmaMagePsycho, but I don't know if there's any type of convention on that07:29
MagePsychoSt1gma: not bad idea, thanks man07:29
smikimsSt1gma: the convention is /usr/local/bin07:29
nbusronelotuspsychje : ok , hope someone can figure it out07:30
MagePsychoSt1gma: symlink should work fine so that you can have central repository07:30
lotuspsychjenbusrone: you have the right driver active?07:30
Shirakawasunadoes anyone know how I can see if any of my cairo-related libraries were installed from a ppa?07:30
St1gmaMagePsycho, use what smikims said. That's what I do not /usr/bin07:30
nbusronelotuspsychje : yep07:30
St1gmasmikims, thanks for the correction07:30
smikimsSt1gma: and there should be no symlinks required; /usr/local/bin should already be in your path07:31
lotuspsychjenbusrone: check your /var/log/syslog or demsg for brightness issues07:31
St1gmasmikims, I know. I like to keep my stuff separate then symlink into the path. That way I know exactly what is custom that I made and what came with the OS. Just easier to maintain.07:31
lotuspsychjenbusrone: or do a tail -f /var/log/syslog and fool around a bit, to see errors in realtime07:31
smikimsSt1gma: Well no package I know of puts stuff in /usr/local, that's kind of the point of /usr/local07:32
nbusronelotuspsychje : ok , but how do I add a brightness setting at xorg ?07:32
smikimsso you can rely on all of that being your stuff07:33
lotuspsychjenbusrone: first we have to investigate whats wrong exactly07:33
smikimsI take that back; python puts stuff in /usr/local/lib, but I think that's just pip stuff? The directories will be empty unless you install something07:34
St1gmasmikims, that's why I said that what I do serves my purpose only. In my case I run everything in git so I don't want to have that /usr/local/bin that would be counter productive. That is the reason why I symlink. I should have explained myself better the first time I guess. Besides there are some applications that do put things in /usr/local so I just don't want it mixed. Personal hygiene.07:35
nbusronelotuspsychje : it's like a driver instead , after setting the contrast and brightness at nvidia x sever setting , everytime I restart it reset , I need to start nvidia x server to take affect again.07:36
smikimsSt1gma: Ah OK that makes sense07:36
lotuspsychjenbusrone: did you install ubuntu with internet enabled/updates enabled?07:37
smikimsSt1gma: yeah apparently there are things that make directories there but they'll be empty until you do something to fill them; it's still a "your stuff" place07:37
lotuspsychjenbusrone: ubuntu version?07:37
nbusronelotuspsychje : yep , 14.0407:37
lotuspsychjenbusrone: there must be an error soemwhere, syslog,dmesg or xorg logs07:38
nbusronelotuspsychje : ok , i try and find out which causes the error07:40
phil__lol whoops07:41
St1gmaShirakawasuna: You can look at /var/log/apt/history.log or term.log /var/log/dpkg.log should also provide some insights, but I don't know if they'll indicate if a package came from any specific repo/ppa.07:44

RoryIs it possible to prevent a graphical dialogue asking for my passphrase when I use "gpg -d" from the terminal? Can I enter my password in the terminal window? I'm reasonably sure I have used a Linux distro at some point which had this latter behaviour08:23
RoryTo be clear, I still want to be prompted for a passphrase, but I want the prompt to be in the same terminal I run "gpg -d" from, and not pop up in some dialogue box08:23
BLUG_Fred Hi! I upgraded my Ubuntu LTS version from 10.04 to 14.04 and now it seems I can get only one cgi-bin working. The others give me 403. Anybody familiar with the problem?08:42
jimmydIm getting a boot failed error trying to boot off the usb stick i made bootable something with a 32 and then a comand line what do i type in to try to fix the problem08:45
Roryjimmyd: What did you use to create the bootable USB? There are instructions here http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-ubuntu08:46
RoryOr for Windows, http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows08:46
jimmydi used unet bootin Rory08:47
cfhowlettjimmyd, did you 1. verify the .iso   and 2. verify the USB?08:47
Roryjimmyd: I've had all sorts of problems with unetbootin. My personal favourite program for doing this sort of thing on Windows is LinuxLiveUSB http://www.linuxliveusb.com08:47
Roryjimmyd: That will also verify the iso for you08:48
cfhowlettstrangely enough, the product created by unetbootin and ubuntu startup disk creator are quite different08:48
jimmydno not really no but I am running a xubuntu that i created the same way08:48

cfhowlett!md5sum | jimmyd08:49
ubottujimmyd: To 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_Windows08:49
White_CatI see /dev/sda  /dev/sda1  /dev/sda2  /dev/sda3 when I run /dev/sd*08:49
White_Catdoes that mean I have one drive with 3 partitions?08:49
Roryjimmyd: It's one of two things. (1) the .iso file you have is incorrect in some way. (2) the .iso file was not written to the USB flash drive correctly.08:49
RoryWhite_Cat: Yes08:49
White_CatI have a second drive inserted to the sata slot08:49
White_CatI wonder why it isnt detected08:49
cfhowlettjimmyd, +1 rory.  thus my suggestion to md5sum both08:50
RoryWhite_Cat: Is it detected in the BIOS?08:50
White_Catbios is so convoluted :/ possibly not though08:50
White_CatI'll try to verify08:50
RoryWhite_Cat: Best to rule that out first, in order to narrow it down to being a problem with Ubuntu08:50
RoryWhite_Cat: Rather than, say, a problem with the drive, motherboard, cable etc08:50
jimmydok lots of information to go on thanks guys08:50
White_CatI just wanted to make sure what I am interpreting was correct08:50
White_Catthere is no cable in this case08:51
RoryWhite_Cat: You can use a tool like "gparted" to view/edit partiions graphically if you prefer08:51
jimmydagain can i check this stuff with a command from the prompt on the failed boot comand line08:52
cfhowlettjimmyd, read the md5sum wiki I sent you for guidance.08:52
White_CatRory I dont think gparted is compatible with ubuntu server08:54
cfhowlettWhite_Cat, not "incompatible" just ... no gui so no gparted.08:54
RoryWhite_Cat: OK, didn't realise. Was just in case you were unaware08:54
White_Catis there a console version that does something similar?08:55
White_Catwouldnt be a real gui naturally08:55
reggie-manMy DVD doesn't mount when I insert it, and when I try to manually mount it I get "mount: can't find /dev/sr0 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab"08:55
RoryWhite_Cat: Not the ncurses gui you're imagining. There are command-line tools to manage partitions though, obviously08:56
White_Catwell yes08:56
White_Catso its a text bar instead of a window08:56
White_Catsomething like that08:56
White_Catits fine if it displays the information just in text too08:57
White_CatI guess what I am trying to as is, what is a gparted-like program for ubuntu server08:57
cfhowlettWhite_Cat, fdisk is CLI and has the same functionality08:57

ShirakawasunaI have issues with a cinnamon applet segfault - not supported, so I'm not asking how to fix that. I just tested a fresh install in virtualbox and I don't get the problem (a segmentation fault). Any ideas on how to troubleshoot that, i.e., restore to a more 'default' installation state? I know that it's system files, as I've made a new user and the segmentation fault still occurs.09:06

Lucaxok, thanks for clarifying. actually what I am doing is simply optimizing my picture titles manually and replacing the default camera title like CN001 to descriptive titles like "blue horse gone wild"10:33

InFiernoHi guys, anyone here has experience with UE3 on Linux?11:38
RenardI used a USB key to install Ubuntu on my dekstop back in the days. I completely wiped it (3-pass wipe) and despite it being empty, my Arch/ARM (rpi) machine still thinks it's an install disk and lists some sort of squashfs. What did I miss here?11:39
InFiernoRenard, Dunno if this will work but try formatting it with a windows PC if you have one (or macosx)11:40
Renarddid that, didn't change anything11:40
reggie-manAre you sure you don't mean /media/<username>/cdrom Sh3r1ff? and am I adding that line to /etc/fstab ?11:41
Renardalso the firmware seems to be set as "mkfs.fat" as the OEM string11:41
InFiernoRenard, Odd; I usually do a quick NTFS format then back to fat32 and never have issues11:43
Sh3r1ffreggie-man: you can specify any directory you want, as long as it is an existing one11:43
Renardthis behavior is consistant with another older key I have11:43
Renardsomething's definitely off11:44
reggie-manDo I add the line to /etc/fstab Sh3r1ff?11:44
Sh3r1ffreggie-man: yes11:45
InFiernoRenard, Maybe its an arch linux caching issue?11:45
reggie-manSh3r1ff: And then after that just try a disc again?11:46

DeefActionParsnip: I am new to Ubuntu, and I have a server running in a country I'm not back in for another week. It is running TeamViewer, which no longer responds. I can access file sharing, so I can put a file on the server, but just need to launch a restart12:37

plumplumpjesus, sorry bout that. tried a second keyboard. quit firefox and renamed profile, seems to work now12:42
ZeedoxActionParsnip: I'd disagree, but eh.12:43
White_Catthat is talking about a live cd but all I have is ubuntu server install usb12:43
White_Catcan I run those commands while running the OS itself?12:43
plumplumpActionParsnip: thanks, think that's done it.12:43
plumplumpI wonder if it's because I didn't restart firefox after live-plugging (lol?) my usb keyboard.12:44
plumplumpoh dear. there was a second usb keyboard plugged in simultaneously. sorry.12:45
plumplumpi didn't see it behind there12:45
ActionParsnipplumplump: obviously bookmarks and such will need resyncing blah blah but should be ok12:46
ActionParsnipplumplump: you can rename the folders back and forth if required.  Dead easy12:47
plumplumpok. it's a fresh install so i'll just import my bookmarks as it is12:47
ActionParsnipplumplump: even better12:47
ActionParsnipZeedox: transmission and vlc have web uis. You can file manage with sftp (part of ssh server). What do you use teamviewer etc for?12:48
plumplumpI've been using filezilla to do file management via sftp, perhaps he just really likes a desktop filemanager? could have vnc listen on localhost only, and then ssh tunnel to machine perhaps12:50
ActionParsnipplumplump: nautilus can connect to SSHFS / SFTP12:52
plumplumpActionParsnip: no shit?! oh man12:52
ActionParsnipplumplump: yes, its a feature rich file manager, not like the crap you get in Windows12:52
plumplumpi'll have to try this right now on my remote box at the 'rents12:53
plumplumpActionParsnip: well thats the kind of feature i didnt think to even look for12:53
ZeedoxActionParsnip: Not specifically TeamViewer, but there's nothing wrong with using a tool that is known to work.12:53
ActionParsnipZeedox: yeah but if a sleeker solution exists shouldn't it be used. I bet you use it to run updates ;-)12:54
ZeedoxRather than navigating mysterious bugs in other sw.12:54
DeefHi all again, dickhead here with the Teamviewer issue. SSH is timing out, so I don't think I've installed it. I'll do that when I get back to the box. Any other options for me to somehow restart the machine (I have access to the drive using Teamviewer file sharing) but don't know enough about Ubuntu to do anything about it!12:56
notfadsssssssdeef: crash it ?12:57
DeefWould it restart though?12:57
notfadsssssssdeef: install ssh but thats not an option i guess12:57
notfadsssssssdeef: if you control it correctly, it will reboot will it not? just find a means at which the os forces reboot.12:58
DeefIt should reboot I guess, but I don't know enough about how to force a reboot (or if it possible) by just manipulating files on the local HDD12:58
notfadsssssssdeef: I have not been reading your messages, but If you need to restart something and cannot access it via ssh and have access to drives.12:58
notfadsssssssdeef: oh just HDD drives?12:58
DeefI have access to the drive using file sharing, but can't establish a remote session12:59
notfadsssssssdeef: what os? I thought you ment drivers drivers12:59
ragnarockHi guys need help ,I am unable to ping www.github.com from my home wifi.Unable to connect from mobile too.Any  help is very much appreciated...12:59

notfadsssssssdeef: and forice it to run? >.>12:59
DeefI can file share, but can't remote desktop. Just need to find a way to restart the machine if possible. If it isn't, then meh, nothing lost too much!12:59
DeefForcing it to run is the tricky bit13:00
DeefOne sec, I have access to an app console which is running on the server which might be able to launch a batch file13:00
notfadsssssssdeef: arg sorry.13:00
notfadsssssssdeef: so write a bat file to send restart command13:00
ZeedoxActionParsnip: I just dislike buggy software. ssh keeps giving me touble without any good error messages.13:00
DeefBugger, the app console only runs specific things, not a custom batch13:01
DeefNever mind, I'll keep thinking and if not I'm back at the machine in a few days anyway13:01

k1l_plumplump: ccsm is not meant to be a user-tool. its very advanced in its settings and you might break more than you actually fix, in worst case disable all unity13:15
plumplumpgot it13:15
ActionParsnipRory: according to http://linux.die.net/man/1/gpg the cleartext should go to stdout, you can use --output option to spit the text to a file, then cat the file then delete it (if you want)13:18
RoryActionParsnip: No, you misunderstand. The first time after logging in when I run gpg -d, the gpg-agent (I think) pops up a dialogue asking for the passphrase13:19
RoryActionParsnip: For various not very interesting reasons, I would prefer gpg-agent to ask for my passphrase on the console13:19
ActionParsnipRory: makes sense. You could report a bug13:20
RoryIt's not really a bug though13:20
RoryI think different distros do it differently... and obviously on a system without a graphical interface you get prompted on the console. But I just don't know where it's configured13:21
mwsbRory: This could be a bit dated, but reads what you're after (as far as I can see): http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=151036013:23
Rorymwsb: I had considered doing that, but that kills gpg-agent which means I'll be prompted for my password every time13:24

White_Catthis is talking about the ubuntu linux live cd14:32
=== light94 is now known as Guest94011
White_Catis this different from the installation usb for ubuntu server?14:32
White_Catcan I run these commands while running the OS itself?14:32
Sh3r1ffWhite_Cat: don't know about the server disc, but the default installation disc is also a live cd14:34
White_Catit gives me the option to install ubuntu etc in a list14:34
White_Catis this where I am supposed to press Ctrl+Alt+T ?14:34
BluesKaj_White_Cat, create a new GPT partition table first, usually with windows then partition the unallocated space for linux and install from there14:35
White_CatI dont use windows on this machine at all14:35
Sh3r1ffWhite_Cat: i would say that that is not a live cd14:35
White_Catits purely ubutnu server14:35
BluesKaj_White_Cat, so why convert dos partiton table to uefi ?14:36
White_Catwhat exactly is the live cd (computer doesnt have an optical disk so it would be through a USB)14:36
White_CatBlue11 faster boot14:36
White_Catbetter detection14:36
White_Catlegacy is being wonky14:37
White_Cator else I wouldnt bother14:37
BluesKaj_yes, better driver detection ...understood14:37
BluesKaj_err hdd detection rather14:37
BluesKaj_or any othe rdrive for that matter14:37
White_Catits on a real deal server too so its causing all sorts of other pain14:38
White_Catactually is what is described at http://askubuntu.com/questions/509423/which-commands-to-convert-a-ubuntu-bios-install-to-efi-uefi-without-boot-repair logical?14:38
Sh3r1ffWhite_Cat: cd/usb, same thing, get the regular ubuntu installation disc, not the server one14:38
BluesKaj_yup , I had the same problem , but creating gpt partition table solved it for me14:38
White_Catfor desktop14:38
White_CatI see14:38
White_Catcan I make that happen by booting into the OS14:39
White_Catbecause I can do that14:39
Sh3r1ffWhite_Cat: can make what happen?14:40

newertywhite_cat, in what it has a problem?14:47
White_Catnewerty I want to convert bios boot to efi14:48
White_CatI have no idea how to do it14:48
White_Catbut this is described at http://askubuntu.com/questions/509423/which-commands-to-convert-a-ubuntu-bios-install-to-efi-uefi-without-boot-repair14:48
White_Catis that logical and if so can I apply those changes while running the OS itself14:48
Sh3r1ffWhite_Cat: i haven't checked the link you provided, but if you boot the live usb, you are in a regular os, so you can access the disc, run commands, ...14:49

White_CatI dont really need the recovery disk to access the OS if I can do this form the os itself14:49
White_Catmy point is forgoing the recovery disk itself, is that a possibility14:50
White_CatSh3r1ff its a series of commands it seems14:50
White_Catnothing too complicated14:50
White_CatI am terrified of frying my drive14:50
newertywhite_cat, why to you it?14:50
erichfI have an issue where my chromium icon is opening join.me in app mode, what is the correct place to ask about resolving this?14:52
erichfI would like chromium, to open chromium in browser mode14:52
ActionParsnipWhite_Cat: you won't fry the drive. It will still function. Just be sure your backups are up to date before you start14:52
ActionParsniperichf: what is the output of: cat /etc/issue14:53
White_CatActionParsnip I dont have backups and I cannot have them14:53
White_Catthats the problem, thats why I need EFI14:54
White_Catit wont detect the backup drive14:54
White_CatI have a grub prompt on the ubuntu server installation disk14:54
newertywhy not a grub, for example?14:54
White_CatI am fairly new to linux. I am unsure how to solve this14:55
aFeijohi folks, I mounted a webdav (box.com) account, I can create a file, save it, delete using vim. But it wont work for copying files! I try with cp and scp, it return an error: input/output error, what can I do?14:55
ActionParsnipWhite_Cat: why is there no backup from when it was ok? I take it the data is disposable to you. ?.14:55
ActionParsnipaFeijo: how did you mount it?14:55
White_CatActionParsnip I am handed a problem and I am trying to fix it14:55
White_Catif I had designed it, I would have done this first14:56
White_CatI dont want to loose data14:56
ActionParsnipWhite_Cat: but is the data important?14:56
White_Cateverything is working fine asife from EFI14:56
erichfActionParsnip: Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS \n \l14:56
ActionParsnipWhite_Cat: what if the drive IDE or motor failed...where is your data?14:56
White_Catits on raid 5 so its not suicidal14:56
White_Catbut no data would be lost if two drives fail14:56
White_Catthats why I want to define a backup14:57
aFeijoActionParsnip, hello :) I followed many pages with step by step to do it with box.com, but the bottom line is in the fstab file: https://dav.box.com/dav /home/xmodulo/box.com davfs rw,user,noauto 0 014:57
White_Catto do that I need EFI as drives arent being detected by legacy bios14:57
ActionParsnipWhite_Cat: raid is not an escuse to not backup14:57
aFeijoActionParsnip, I used davfs214:57
White_CatActionParsnip I KNOW.14:57
aFeijolike in this tutorial http://xmodulo.com/how-to-mount-box-com-cloud-storage-on-linux.html14:57
White_CatAll I am asking is how to convert this to EFI14:57
ActionParsnipWhite_Cat: people love to learn the hard way. You are going to have to swing and hope14:58
White_Cathard way what?14:58
White_CatI didnt design this14:58
White_CatI am trying to fix it14:58
ActionParsnipWhite_Cat: data loss = hard way14:58
White_Catif you do not know how to do this please stop wasting my time14:58
ActionParsnipWhite_Cat: people don't backup their "important" data then cry when it comes to the crunch14:59
White_CatDo you not understand the issue?14:59
White_CatThe dickhead before me didnt bother with a backup14:59
White_CatI am trying to fix that14:59
ActionParsnipWhite_Cat: the guide you posted has concise commands to chroot to the insralled OS from liveCd and convert14:59
cfhowlettWhite_Cat, language ..!!!14:59

ActionParsnipgeoffmcc: I wouldn't say that :-)15:00
White_Catgeoffmcc that may be it doesnt change my plight.15:00
geoffmccWhite_Cat: your just not being very respectful15:00
White_CatActionParsnip my question is if I can run those commands from the OS itself15:00
White_Catgeoffmcc  I am sorry you feel that way15:00
White_CatI meant no disrepsect15:01
White_CatI am frustrated by the situation I am in due to the previous guy15:01

White_CatActionParsnip ah, I fear as much.15:01
mcphailnewerty: please stop spamming the channel15:01
White_CatWould the ubuntu server installation disk (usb drive in my case) handle the same task? I currently have a grub prompt from it15:02

White_Catit has a number of options15:08
Sh3r1ffit has been a long time since i installed an ubuntu server, but booting live isn't one of the options if i remember correctly15:09
cfhowlettSh3r1ff, still true, sadly.15:09

nikisnomadist: what are you trying to telnet to? Do you have a telnet daemon installed on the server?15:33
nomadiston the vps I can see that telnet is installed15:34

nikisnomadist: if that service is only running on localhost, you would not be able to connect to it remotely.15:35
nikisAs in, you would first have to SSH to your server, and from that, telnet to that port.15:35

CalebWcfhowlett: Well, I can't login to my desktop, it just freezes at the background and mouse.16:49
cfhowlettCalebW, recent updates?  especially kernel?16:50
BluesKaj_CalebW, at the login page or before?16:50
CalebWcfhowlett: I thought it was compiz or unity so I installed gnome-flashback and tried the Metacity Session but it didn't work.16:50
CalebWcfhowlett: after the login page.16:50
cfhowlettBluesKaj_, ideas?  this one is over my head16:51
CalebWI can do a kernel upgrade with dist-upgrade but I haven't yet(didn't know if I should)16:51
cfhowlettCalebw dist-upgrades usually solve a lot of problems.  if possible, log in to the terminal, do the upgrades then reboot16:52
CalebWIt happend yesterday all of the sudden. In the morning it was fine, then I go to login that afternoon and it locked up.16:52
=== someon is now known as someone
CalebWThe only package i installed was python-visual (don't know if that would cause a problem or not)16:53
BluesKaj_CalebW, the at the login page try ctl+alt +F!-F6 and login there , then update anf upgrade or , choose the recovery kernel at grub prompt and try try the reapir option in the dialog that appears16:53

BluesKaj_did you login to the the tty/vt?16:53

CalebWI've done a lot of reading and a lot of the problems I've seen have to do with nvidia drivers, but I don't have a nvidia graphics card.16:55
BluesKaj_i would apt-get upgrade first then dist-upgrade, it's better to upgrade the existing packages first then the packages that are held back with dist-upgrade16:56
CalebWBluesKaj_: I've already upgraded yesterday.16:57
BluesKaj_do it agin today16:57

revowhats the diference between kde and gnome - has this anything to do with os - currently running xubuntu17:44
jhutchinschipmadness: The xorg drivers are usually a little better integrated into the xorg/ubuntu system and tend to have fewer glitches.  On the other hand, the AMD drivers are more likely to make full use of the GPU's features and new enhancements, and usually have better performance under high-demand (gaming) use.17:45
chipmadnessjhutchins idk what to do lol17:46
EriC^^chipmadness: what jhutchins said ^^ , if you're not gaming i'd use the xorg as they run better and cooler too17:46
jhutchinsrevo: Not strictly speaking OS.   The desktop interface you use on top of the OS.  KDE and Gnome include a suite of programs for various things like email and system configuration.17:46
chipmadnesswhat if i want to game17:46
Sh3r1ffrevo: basicly, how things are displayed17:46

Bashing-omCrell: Hybrid is that situation of one graphics chip (Intel) embedded to the mother board - discreet, and for performance there is another card on the PCIE . The OEMs do not give us great support . But things are looking up .19:22
CalebWBashing-om: paste.ubuntu.com/964181219:22

squintyStripes__:  you can also use your irc client to search the channels.  for example in xchat or hexchat, click on Server -> list of channels > search19:53

cpikadrdozer: from which repository?19:54
Stripes__don't see "server" anywhere on this page?19:55
drdozercpika: not entirely sure - presumably which ever one is on by default - I hadn't enabled a ppa19:55

skaoRNeville: A new Windows installation will overwrite the grub bootloader, so what you definetely need to do is to reinstall grub afterwards most likely over a live-cd20:42
Jordan_URNeville: It's possible that the Windows installer will overwrite grub, or in the case of UEFI make grub a secondary rather than primary bootloader (so only Windows boots by default). Either way, it's not too difficult to re-install grub if you have a LiveCD/USB on hand.20:42

trismCalebW: theres your problem right there: libdrm_intel.so.1 => /usr/local/lib/libdrm_intel.so.1 (0x00007f623ffc5000)21:55
trismCalebW: did you build or install something in /usr/local/lib lately?21:55
etronikhow can one handle/install  .rpm files under ubuntu14 ?21:55
guitedaftykins: At first (when I installed my ubuntu) I installed nvidia-prime…21:55
Jordan_UObiwantje: How many hard drives do you have?21:56
CalebWtrism: I don't think so21:56
k1letronik: you look for .deb in the first place. what program is it?21:56
guitedaftykins: then I had this openCL problem and installed nvidia proprietary drivers21:56
daftykinsetronik: well, why try and use them at all? can't you get the software you want in the proper format?21:56
ObiwantjeJordan_U, quite a few - all ZFS but boot21:56
trismCalebW: ls /usr/local/lib; out of curiosity21:56
daftykinsguite: i'm not following you, it worked before?21:56
MaltahlHey i have some trouble with my Clevo W350STQ with Ubuntu 14.04. Bluetooth stopped working after updating and now i cannot get it back. i tried blueman packages but it did not work. Could someone assist me ?21:56
ObiwantjeJordan_U, 30-40?21:56
guitedaftykins: no, never tried before today21:56
etronikk1l, daftykins : no, I can't get .dbe for the specific epson scanner driver ... only .rpm or .tgz21:57
guitedaftykins: I mean, OpenCL never worked21:57
CalebWtrism: paste.ubuntu.com/964258321:57
etronikdbe = deb21:57
guitedaftykins: but nvidia drivers seemed to be correctly installed21:57
heinrichalguien que escriba en español?21:57
daftykinsguite: have a read of your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to check21:58
Jordan_UObiwantje: Please pastebin the contents of /proc/mounts and /etc/fstab.21:59
CalebWheinrich: va a #ubuntu-es21:59
guitedaftykins: nothing written about opencl21:59
daftykinsguite: no but you can check out your DRI2 error and see whether the drivers are happy :)21:59
trismCalebW: okay I would mv all the top-level libs there to another temporary directory and then reboot and see if you get a session21:59
EriC^^etronik: if you must, sudo apt-get install rpm21:59
EriC^^!rpm | etronik21:59
ubottuetronik: RPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !dpkg, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)21:59
Bashing-omObiwantje: Jordan_U :: reading the boot-info script . be a while .22:00
EriC^^!info rpm | etronik22:00
ubottuetronik: rpm (source: rpm): package manager for RPM. In component main, is optional. Version 4.11.2-3 (utopic), package size 110 kB, installed size 380 kB22:00

trismCalebW: but there may be more issues there22:00
CalebWSo I mv all of the *.so to a bk dir ?22:01
ObiwantjeJordan_U, Bashing-om : http://paste.ubuntu.com/9642602/22:01
trismCalebW: yeah, rather than just delete them because we don't want to break your system further22:01
guitedaftykins: I don’t even know if this is an error >_<22:01
k1letronik: alien. but i am not sure if that works as expected with driver stuff22:02
trismCalebW: though most important is /usr/local/lib/libdrm_intel.so.1 you could just try that alone first if you wanted22:02
tunafishI am locked out of networkmanager, even as root, (32) Not authorized to control networking. easy way to fix this?22:02
Jordan_UObiwantje: sudo mount /boot/ #Now you should see the /boot/ directory you have actually been booting from22:02
pasqualeiron man22:02
CalebWJust the *.so or the *.so.(1.0,etc)?22:02
daftykinsguite: it's pretty obvious since at the start of the Xorg log it tells you II is information, EE is error and WW is warning. :)22:03
daftykinsguite: have you read http://askubuntu.com/questions/131506/how-can-i-get-nvidia-cuda-or-opencl-working-on-a-laptop-with-nvidia-discrete-car ?22:03
trismCalebW: just: mv /usr/local/lib/libdrm_intel.so.1 /some/temp/location; then reboot, you can get more drastic and move them all if that doesn't work22:04
trismCalebW: it's got to be what is screwing you up, but we don't know why you have them there, otherwise I would say just delete them all22:04
ObiwantjeJordan_U, Bashing-om: sudo mount /boot/ -> mount: can't find /boot/ in /etc/fstab22:05
guitedaftykins: no, I didn’t… so I need to install bumblebee…22:05
daftykinsguite: hah, no - read it22:05
Jordan_UObiwantje: Indeed, I just now noticed that you commented it out. Why did you do that?22:05
ObiwantjeJordan_U, I don't think I did?22:05
guitedaftykins: ok, thanks :)22:06
Jordan_UObiwantje: Someone or something did.22:06
Jordan_UObiwantje: In fact you have two commented out lines for /boot/, which is even more odd.22:07
ObiwantjeJordan_U, you want me to put it back in and rebooot?22:07
etronikerr how do I find out if I have 14.04 or 14.10 ?22:07
k1letronik: lsb_release -d22:08
etronikk1l, ah! thanks,22:08
Dinqquick question on running my own local repository:  i have 1 server that can reach the internet, running a mirror, and a second server inside that cannot reach the internet, using server1 as it's repository22:08
Jordan_UObiwantje: Uncomment one of the entries, run "sudo mount /boot/", then re-install the kernel package you want, then reboot and you should boot into the new kernel.22:08
CalebWtrism: didn't work22:08
Dinqi also have a package in a specific PPA repo on the mirror (haproxy 1.5.3 on ubuntu 14.04 is what i'm trying to do)22:09
trismCalebW: what is: apt-cache policy libdrm-intel122:09
tunafishto hell with this networkmanager, I am switching to wicd22:09
grilled-cheesehas anyone had any luck with zfs yet?22:09

sheer$5 to charity if someone helps me load runescape on 14.04 :) Thanks22:09
etroniknow the Epson scanner thing, stopped working with 14.04, was working before, searching leads me to all sorts of confusing info ... how should I go about getting it to back to working condition  with simple scan ? TIA22:09
grilled-cheeseis there a good reference out there for the sharenfs property?  I get lost in the solaris, bsd, obsolete documentation and the manpage isn't very helpful22:10

grilled-cheeseoracle java or openjdk?22:11
ActionParsnip0sheer: webupd8 has a PPA for Oracle java22:11
sheerk1l: I cannot load Runescape?22:11
sheergrilled-cheese: openjdk I think22:11

bekksgrilled-cheese: http://askubuntu.com/questions/450971/zfs-on-linux-setting-up-nfs-on-ubuntu-14-04-with-os-x-mavericks-client -- the server part stays the same, since thats the Ubuntu part.22:11
sheerActionParsnipI don't know what that means22:11
ActionParsnip0sheer: if you use TAB you can autocomplete nicks22:11
ObiwantjeJordan_U will try22:11
sheerI got no error message22:11
trismCalebW: okay so that is fine, does: ldd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/i965_dri.so; show the correct libdrm_intel now?22:12
ActionParsnip0sheer: go find out, the web will tell you22:12
Obiwantjemind checking if I uncommented the right thing?22:12
sheerActionParsnip0:  know of that, thank you.22:12
sheerfind out what?22:12
Bashing-omJordan_U: Wow, that was quick .. some kind of sharp are you  :)22:12
sheersorry, few people talking22:12

k1lActionParsnip0: did you see this and did it work? http://www.webupd8.org/2012/07/how-to-install-runescape-linux-game.html22:12
trismCalebW: are you sure you didn't build anything from source recently?22:12
grilled-cheesebekks: that helps if I were trying to connect a mac22:12
bekksgrilled-cheese: As I said, the Ubuntu (server) pat is always the same.22:12
k1lsheer: "my car is broken" "what is broken exactly" "its broken"    that doesnt help others help you.22:13
CalebWtrism: paste.ubunut.com/964264322:13
sheerI'm aware, but I know nothing of how cars work, so I have no clue what is broken about it, it's just not running22:13
bekksgrilled-cheese: And even the mount command on the client (if you are using Ubuntu there) is the same, too.22:13
sheerrunescape won't run and i get no error message eithe22:13
grilled-cheesebekks: I used to use no_root_squash, no_subtree_check in /etc/exports and on the ubuntu client side with the same uid/gid it would map correctly the usernames22:13
grilled-cheesebekks: but now it just mounts up as root everywhere22:14
CalebWI built mesa from source a couple of weeks ago but I thought I uninstalled everything...22:14
CalebWwhen it didn't work...22:14
trismCalebW: nope libs are still there22:14
grilled-cheesebekks: even though the ownership on the server is set to my user22:14
trismCalebW: though it is strange that it just breaks now22:14
CalebWremove them all?22:14
trismCalebW: yeah22:14
CalebWThat's what a I thought..22:14
=== yourname is now known as JNixx
bekksgrilled-cheese: then what did you change?22:15
CalebWtrism; So all of the libdrm* in /usr/local/lib22:15
trismCalebW: makes me think this isn't going to help and something else is broken, can I see: ldd /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so; before you do?22:15
grilled-cheesedid server rebuild with 14.04 instead of 12.4 and this time switched to using zfs instead of dmraid22:15

CalebWtrism: paste.ubunut.com/964265322:16
grilled-cheesesheer: what happens if you try to launch it from the command line?  do you get any useful messages?22:16
bekksgrilled-cheese: And you switched to sharenfs instead of just sharing using /etc/exports, correct?22:16
gradushello. i am hoping for some help. i have deleted my ubuntu parition along with the grub files, now i cannot access my windows parittion. when my computer boots it just sits at a blank screen witha  single flashing cursor and I cannot type. any help?22:16
sheergrilled-cheese: it's a browser based game, so afaik that doesn't involve the command line at all22:17
bekksgrilled-cheese: Try using the "old" /etc/exports approach again, and disable sharenfs22:17
grilled-cheesesheer: does it download a jar file?22:17
sheerwhat does happen is: I load the site, the game says: setting up graphics to suit you as it's the first time> then if I click OK, it all goes blank. And the firefox browser freezes22:17
sheergrilled-cheese: If it does, it doesn't alert me to it22:17
grilled-cheesesheer: ok, have you tried using chrome?22:18
sheerno, I'll try chrome then22:18
carif_what's the difference btwn the command line utility 'apt' and 'apt-get'/'apt-cache'? Is 'apt' considered the successor to 'apt-get'?22:18
grilled-cheesesheer: just to be sure it isn't a browser specific problem22:18
Jordan_Ugradus: Do you want to re-install Ubuntu, or just get Windows booting again?22:18
=== curiousx is now known as Chuck_Norris
Chuck_Norrissheer: it's a java game ?22:19
grilled-cheesecarif_: apt-cache uses the locally downloaded information from the repos22:19
sheergrilled-cheese: gotcha. Also, I just installed this OS from scratch yesterday yet when I boot, it says an error's been found22:19
sheerChuck_Norris: yes it is22:19
gradusJordan_U: just get windows booting again for now22:19
squintygradus: you need to use your Windows recovery disks or Windows recovery partition to fix22:19
carif_grilled-cheese, ty; does that mean 'apt' doesn't?22:19
Chuck_Norrissheer: sudo apt-get install icedtea-plugin22:20
Jordan_Ugradus: OK. Do you have an Ubuntu LiveDVD/USB, or a Windows install DVD/USB that you can boot from?22:20
grilled-cheesecarif_: apt/apt-get tie in more to the remote repositories22:20
gradussquinty: i attempted to use the guide here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreUbuntu/XP/Vista/7Bootloader , i ran the two commands successfully but upon rebooting i saw the same thing22:21
gradusi have an option in my boot menu simply called 'ubuntu' that i think is still attempting to boot with priority22:21
gradusJordan_U: as well22:21
l0rdn1xnautilus[2273]: segfault at 33 ip this caused me to have to do a hardboot22:21
sheerChuck_Norris: yes. Yes, I cam see why you're called Chuck_Norris22:22
Chuck_Norrissheer: :p22:22
sheermy primary (and only) hard drive is a WD green, is that kind of bad? as it's aimed at storage22:23
squintygradus: see my previous comment   simplest and recommended method imho.22:23
grilled-cheesebekks: switched back to /etc/exports and it still doesn't map the zfs vdevs correctly, still wants to use root instead of the real user22:24
ki7rwthat's the fourth time i downloaded and burned 14.04 disks and i still get a malformed file error message at bootup - k3b verified the written iso22:24
gradussquinty: i did that but it still is seeing something called 'ubuntu' in bios and going to a blank screen22:24
grilled-cheesebekks: that includes a restart of the nfs kernel server & the autofs client22:24
sheerChuck_Norris: what happens this time is: I get a "Profiling.." little box come up which is new. normally it's all just blank. However.. the browser is now stuck22:25
sheercan't open a new tab22:25
sheerand it's stuck on profiling. my computer isn't old at all.22:25
squintygradus:  then you need to access a windows related channel.  you deleted ubuntu...22:25
gradussquinty: obviously the knowledge about ubuntu is essential to fixing this problem22:26
sheeri think something is wrong. Ubuntu is running slow at times despite my computer being fast.22:27
trismCalebW: get rid of /usr/local/lib/libGL.so.1 too22:27
squintygradus:  what makes you say that?  you obviously don't know what you are doing to start with deleting willy nilly.........22:28
etronikok so giving up on the scanner ever working on 14.04....22:28
Chuck_Norrissheer: idk, run: htop   and see if there is a process at %10022:29
Jordan_Ugradus: Is this a UEFI or BIOS based machine?22:29
gradussquinty: you are aware youre in a support chat right22:29
gradusJordan_U: bios22:29
CalebWtrism libGL.{la,so,so.1,and so.1.2.0?22:29
Jordan_Ugradus: And you're currently booted from an Ubuntu LiveDVD/USB?22:29
bubbasauresetronik, simple scan does not see it?22:30
gradusJordan_U: though i believe when grub 2 takes over for the first time it implements some sort of uefi system, is that right?22:30
squintygradus:  yes more than obviously you do.  type /topic and read plus understand. this is a ubuntu support channel not windows22:30
gradusJordan_U: i am currently on another machine though i can boot from an ubuntu or a windows 8 usb on the other22:30
etronikbubbasaures, it does see it, but somehow fails to connect to it (I presume from the countless similar reports)22:30
Jordan_Ugradus: No. You either have UEFI firmware or you don't, grub can't give your computer UEFI.22:30
sheerChuck_Norris: i can't even open Chrome22:31
sheerI just installed it22:31
trismCalebW: yeah22:31
bubbasauresetronik, never had an issue here and " (I presume from the countless similar reports)" is gibberish to me. ;)22:31
QwertieDoes anyone know how to get ubuntu to keep my wacom tablet keymapping after reboot?22:31
guntbertKeelious: do you need help? If so please ask a concrete question.22:31
gradusJordan_U: the other meaning the one with the problem. for some reason int he bios i see this item called "ubuntu" which i think is a messed up version of the old partition i deleted22:31
CalebWtrism: here's my /usr/local/lib paste.ubunut.com/964270522:32
trismCalebW: oh, wait get rid of the libglapi ones too22:32
bert_binaryI'm trying to get my logitech bluetooth mouse to act as a 3 button... ubuntu 14.. anyone have a solution. google didn't give me a solution that works yet.22:32
Jordan_Ugradus: Please boot from an Ubuntu Live media on the problematic machine, then run boot info script and pastebin the RESULTS.txt that it produces. (I suspect that you do in fact have UEFI based firmware).22:32
Jordan_U!bootinfo | gradus22:32
ubottugradus: Boot info script is a useful script for diagnosing boot problems. Run the script following the directions here: http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/ and then look at RESULTS.txt (or !pastebin it for others to look at).22:32
etronikbubbasaures, well, simple scan is even more gibberish than me, it just says "failed to scan"22:32
bert_binarymmb not working in browsers or anywhere.22:33
CalebWWhat about the libglfw? -trism22:33
gradusJordan_U: its an asus mobo and the utility at boot is caleld a "UEFI BIOS" utility22:33
gradusso i guess uefi?22:33
Keeliousguntbert : I have absolutely not need help but thank you22:33
trismCalebW: that's were the missing symbol is supposed to come from, in fact since you now know where most of it came from, you might want to just delete all those top level libs22:33
gradusJordan_U: yes it is uefi im sorry22:34
bubbasauresetronik, Has before worked from what you post, have you tried it in the guest account or on a live cd of this release, What would help us is knowing what you have done if any configs were changed since you have two scan apps.22:34
squintygradus:   and uefi is used by...... can you guess?22:34
trismCalebW: is that dri file a directory or a file? is there anything in it if it is a directory?22:35
gradussquinty: im sorry is your purpose here to antagonize people who are asking for support?22:35
gradussquinty: do the mistakes of others personally bother you?22:35
etronikbubbasaures, not tried with guest nor live CD - will try and report - but unfortunately not right now - thanks for the tips22:36
CalebWtrism: /usr/local/lib/dri/ paste.ubunut.com/964272422:36
squintygradus: nope quite happy to give *relevant* support in the applicable channel.  guess what this is not?   end of discussion for me22:36
trismCalebW: ahh, you might want to remove the dri directory too then, although X is trying to load the file from the correct location so it might be okay there for now22:37
gradusJordan_U: working on the log for now ill be back22:37
bubbasauresetronik, bummer when this happens, simple scan is a generic setup, I doubt epson made any changes and it is the same simple scan as always.22:37
CalebWtrism: but moving the libdrm-intel.so.1 didn't fix my problem.22:38
ikoniayou can't just move libraries around22:39
trismCalebW: yeah I really don't know where the problem is if it was still working for weeks with those libs, it can't really hurt much more to get them out of the way22:39
trismikonia: he has a bunch of libs in /usr/local/lib overriding the default packages (though by my last comment getting them out of the way may not help I guess)22:40
ikoniatrism: depends on why they where there and how they got there and what was using them22:40
trismikonia: he said earlier he built mesa from source so that would explain it, though since his unity only stopped loading today, I'm not really sure...the only thing we have to go off of now is:22:41
ikoniaMesa is in the repos, so I don't know why it would be built from source22:41
trismCalebW: hmm, this doesn't look good: (EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/i965_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/i965_dri.so: undefined symbol: _glapi_tls_Dispatch)22:41
trismikonia: ^ from his Xorg.0.log, checking ldd on that lib showed all the libs in /usr/local/lib22:42
trismikonia: I do have to admit I'm kind of out of ideas if getting them out of the way so the default libs are found doesn't help22:42
ikoniahe's changed the xorg config,22:43
ikoniaor worse replaced and linked the original ones to the /usr/local ones22:43
sheerhello, I am seeking assistance, please22:44

ikoniasda_: your router will have to nat or forward for you to cross networks22:50
daftykinssudormrf: so go ask someone to kick it22:50
sudormrfdaftykins, no one is home22:50
jhutchinssheer: THere's also planeshift.22:50
daftykinsunlucky then22:50
sudormrfI can still ping it22:51
sheerjhutchins: planeshift?22:51
sheeri'll try that22:51
trismrevo: launchpad is the site ubuntu uses for bug tracking and version control http://launchpad.net/22:51
trismrevo: it also hosts many other projects22:52
revotrism,  and how do i do this  Launchpad ID, and you must do this to22:52
revowrite to Launchpad or access private data22:52
grilled-cheesesheer: http://services.runescape.com/m=forum/sl=0/forums.ws?25,26,5,6532968422:52
sda_ikonia, ok, I don't wanna nat. I want to access to the second network client with their IP. How I forward?22:52
trismrevo: you don't need to do that unless you want to make changes to the code and push them back, if you just want to download and use the repository you can ignore that message22:52
revotrism,  thx22:53
jhutchinssheer: It's a similar game, much more directly written to run on linux.  Runescape on linux looks like a pretty horrible hack.22:54
sheertrying that grilled-cheesethanks you're a champ :D22:54
sheerjhutchins: oh.22:54
jhutchinssheer: There's no native code, it's running the Windows or Mac code through wrappers.22:54
sheerI don't see why they don't make a linux client .22:55
sheerit runs on java, don't know why it doesn't even load on browser22:55
CalebWsheer: have you installed the icedtea plugin for firefox?22:55
sheerCalebW: yes22:55
allmountainprophunyguy: can we get along today?22:56
sudormrfkind of worried about this22:56
sudormrfthis system borked itself over the holiday22:56
sudormrfI reinstalled everything22:56
sudormrfnow it looks like it is doing it again22:57
sudormrfcan't ssh in22:57
raulvelardeque rollo22:57
sudormrfwhen I try, it says "ssh_exchange_identification: read: Connection reset by peer22:57
k1lallmountainpro: make sure to read the !guidelines and stick to them. dont start drama here. keep this place a place for technical ubuntu support. thanks22:58
sudormrfseems like there is no way for me to restart this thing remotely, correct?22:59
allmountainprok1l: i got trolled for asking a question22:59
k1lallmountainpro: you are about to start drama again. keep this channel clear of it. thanks23:00
jhutchinssudormrf: Start by using the -v option and see what's actually happening.  If you rebuilt it, your ssh client thinks it's a different server.23:00
sudormrfjhutchins, I was ssh'd in to it all day23:01
sudormrfit just kicked me out23:01
sudormrfjhutchins, since it is being closed by the remote host I don't think there is anything I can do locally to solve the issue, no23:02
sudormrfit said something about a read only system23:02
sudormrfsomething major has gone wrong again23:02
sudormrfwonder if this is a hardware failure23:03
Jordan_Ugradus: I'm leaving now but I will probably be back some time tomorrow.23:04
sda_ikonia, -A FORWARD -p tcp -m state -d your_network_ip.0/ --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT23:04
sda_ikonia, could be?23:04
sudormrfI guess I am stuck until I get home23:05
sudormrfand possibly even further than that if this machine is borked or not23:06
sudormrfmaybe a failing ssd23:06
CalebWtrism: Do you know how to resolve those undefined symbols?23:08
=== tcpman is now known as Guest71383
trismCalebW: did you remove those libs in /usr/local/lib and reboot? I mean, I guess it should find that missing symbol in libglapi through libGL, but if it isn't the libs you installed in /usr/local/lib messing it up I'm not sure where the error is23:10
CalebWI'll reboot right now.23:13

grilled-cheesesheer: even though it is a java app, that does not mean that it is automatically portable to any platform which has a jre.  There are subtle differences, especially when it deals with OS integration that have to be explicitly handled.  Also not all JRE are created equal.  The JRE you find in a mobile device is different than what you might find in a windows desktop, which is different than the linux openjdk23:16
grilled-cheesejava isn't 100% magic23:17
sheergrilled-cheese: interesting23:17
sheersure does seem like magic to me ;)23:17
grilled-cheesethere is a good bit of it23:17
sheeram I wrong to be under the impression that computers work with quantum mechanic principles?23:17
k1lsheer: yes23:17
grilled-cheesein properly built applications, it's not difficult to handle OS specifics in java apps23:18

=== ihatenewyearsnot is now known as XCVB
grilled-cheesesheer: when writing applications you're constantly under pressure to deliver and debug, also many applications start small and grow, it takes telling users no and deal with it while rearchitecting occurs, this is why it rarely happens23:21
grilled-cheeseyou just can't do that if they're paying your salery23:22
sheeri could understand somewhat, maybe, but with a huge company like jagex, not offering access to linux users... seems strange23:22
malinaubuntu can be so amazingly backwards, wow. anyway23:23

stale_i love mac n cheese :323:28
notfadssssssseric^^:before you ask, no luck yet... I am having a buddy take a look at the issues tomorrow whom apparently understands EFI and how to tell it to piss off23:28

Guest49171why its not in software center?23:30
Guest49171only chromium23:30

trismCalebW: might try another reboot, see what happens23:30
stale_whats the app that adjusts your monitors color settings to reduce fatigue n whatnot?23:30
k1lGuest49171: ask google why they dont want it in the softwarecenter.23:30
squintystale:  apt-cache search redshift23:31
notfadssssssseric^^: oh trust me I will im just as curious as to what the issue is, I looked up the motherboard and raid controller seeing if there were issues that could come about from hardware as well23:31
stale_ty squinty23:31
Guest49171well it says that google chrome is commercial product but there are other commercial products in software center23:31
notfadssssssseric^^: again thank you with your patience and help again23:32
Guest49171steam for example23:32
EriC^^notfadsssssss: no problem23:32
TomAstroGoogle can't stop Linux users from wearing tin foil hats as in MS so we have a light version of chrome so they can't get into our heads :)23:32
notfadsssssssGUest49171: being that ubuntu is opensource I cannot imagine it supporting something like chrome despite its hyper threading abilities23:32
k1lGuest49171: ask google. if they refuse to put it there or let it be put there it doesnt matter if steam or other stuff is there. its googles decision.23:33
OerHekschrome is based on chromium, so you have a choise23:33
Guest49171oh ubuntu has to ask for permission to put it in software center23:33
CalebWtrism; It worked! dunno how it got messed up in the first place but thanks.23:33
k1lGuest49171: yes. and its not ubuntu putting stuff there its stuffs company putting stuff there.23:34
trismCalebW: excellent23:34
TomAstroGuest  Google "why Chrome is not in Linux distros.  There was an explanation some time back23:34
Bashing-om!yay | CalebW23:36
ubottuCalebW: Glad you made it! :-)23:36
londoncallingguest49171, you don't have to download things from the software center23:36
TomAstroAny LIRC (IR Remote) experts here before I go and wear google search out some more??23:37

ShirakawasunaHi! I'm having a problem with my installation somehow. I'm trying to use cinnamon, but I don't think that's actually causing the problem, since this problem doesn't exist on fresh installation of ubuntu 14.04.1, but does on my current 14.04.1 installation. I was able to isolate the problem to running "Gdk.cairo_surface_create_from_pixbuf" - a gtk/cairo function - which causes a segfault. e.g. if I run this file, I ge23:51
Shirakawasunat a segfault: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/9642972/23:51
notfadssssssseric^^: yup23:51
EriC^^notfadsssssss: ok, does ls EFI return anything?23:52
notfadsssssssefi1:\> ls/dir cannot open current directory - not found23:52
ShirakawasunaMy question is - any ideas on how to troubleshoot this? I was able to find that it's this function that does it, but I don't know where to go from there - what to reinstall? What to delete?23:52
ShirakawasunaI feel like I probably have some leftover libraries installed on this machine that it's picking up, or something23:52
EriC^^notfadsssssss: ok, try mount blk2 efi2 i guess23:52
notfadssssssseric^^: eric^^: efi1:\>  is EFI     ls/dir: Cannot open EFI - Not Found23:52
TomAstrocryptodan:  Been there3 done that.  Real odd issue.  This should work since it sees the remotes.  I built a serial IR remote sensor active low sense, but just can't get it see the remotes from the lirc.conf files I have23:53
notfadssssssseric^^: mount blk2 efi2       mount: invalid device mapping lk2  - Invalid parameter did i need :?23:53
bubbasauresShirakawasuna, we don;t support ppa's here23:53
Shirakawasunabubbasaures: it's not an issue with the ppa23:53
Shirakawasunathat script I posted uses only python-gi23:54
bubbasauresShirakawasuna, all this is on the cinnamon desktop right?23:54
TomAstrocryptodan: I'll take another shot at that since I am using Kodi here.  It should work before I hack Kodi to work with it though23:54
cryptodanTomAstro: that page should assist you23:54
EriC^^notfadsssssss: nope23:55
Shirakawasunabubbasaures: that script causes a segfault if I'm in ubuntu as well23:55
Shirakawasunaand xubuntu23:55
Shirakawasunaand if cinnamon desktop is uninstalled23:55
EriC^^notfadsssssss: that's a typo though right? lk2 ?23:55
