pragmaticenigmaApplesInArrays, you should rarely use the -P option when using scp/sftp commands, as someone can go through your command history and find your password. The scp/sftp applications will both prompt you for a password when you connect00:12
pragmaticenigmaApplesInArrays, ignore  what I said earlier00:12
pragmaticenigmaApplesInArrays, the -P is for setting the port number to connect to on the remote system00:12
ApplesInArraysNow I'm just stuck trying to send over a little js file.00:13
ApplesInArraysI get past the password prompt, but keep getting a "No such file or directory"00:13
pragmaticenigmaApplesInArrays, you might find sftp more user friendly than scp00:13

ApplesInArraysI was asking what's to stop someone.00:15
ApplesInArraysthen I said (7:03:04 PM) ApplesInArrays: Ahh, it prompts for password00:15

ApplesInArraysYes, I have 2 Ubuntu14.04 VMs00:15
pragmaticenigmaApplesInArrays, and they'd be foolish to allow root to remotely login00:15
ApplesInArraysNow I'm just trying to transfer a 1kb js.js file to another server.00:15
ApplesInArrayspragmaticenigma: agreed!00:15
pragmaticenigmaApplesInArrays, Look into sftp... it's a lot easier to use and still uses the ssh connection method.00:16

ApplesInArraysYou're saying someone can go ahead and read my IP:/etc/?00:17
pragmaticenigmaApplesInArrays, only if you haven't configured you system with a password00:17
ApplesInArraysI'm using Putty to connect to my droplet atm00:17
ApplesInArraysThey all have passwords.00:17
nicetiesApplesInArrays: true and false. You need a server running.00:17

pragmaticenigmaApplesInArrays, your systems (droplets) may not be configured to allow root to remotely access via sftp/ssh/scp00:19
ApplesInArraysOh. that's interesting.00:19
ApplesInArraysOk, so I'll set up a proper user account for ForeignIP.00:19
ApplesInArraysI just spun it up, so haven't had time to do that stuff yet00:19
ApplesInArraysbut I'm going to keep the password p455word100:19
nicetiesApplesInArrays: there are many servers like http ftp ssh nfs00:19
ApplesInArraysOtherwise I forget00:19
ApplesInArraysThat's interesting. They block SCP for root@IP00:20
ApplesInArraysI'm learning a bit more day by day about host limitations.00:20

ApplesInArraysI'll be honest, it's RIJX.com's00:21
daftykinsfor example you probably got email'd a root password, root doesn't have a password with ubuntu OOTB00:21
pragmaticenigmaApplesInArrays, I really hope that isn't your actual password00:21
nicetiesApplesInArrays: first most servers only allow access thru certain ports. And a simple firewall can block those ports to the outside00:21
ApplesInArrayspragmaticenigma: of course not00:21
ApplesInArraysRight now I'm using WinSCP to connect to a server one at a time to transfer files. I just figure I should learn this SCP thing.00:22
swordsmanzniceties server ports are arbetry and can be set on server and client00:22
nicetiesswordsmanz: Yes but they need a server.00:22
ApplesInArraysAlright, so I should (1) create a genuine user account. (2) figure out which ports are open for SCP on receiving end.00:22
wolfy1339Is IPv6 working on the00:23
wolfy1339US deb repository?00:23
nicetiesApplesInArrays: Are you asking because you are having problem remotely accessing files?00:23

pragmaticenigmaswordsmanz, he's migrating from one machine to the another, not mirroring them00:27
ApplesInArraysmirroring sounds cool, though!00:27
ApplesInArraysand fuck, I can't figure out why disk quota is exceeded.00:27
gadsdinI just updated from 13.10 to 14.04.1 on a KVM VM running on Ganeti, and I now get the following kernel panic when trying to boot:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/9758956/   any ideas about why?00:28
pragmaticenigmaApplesInArrays, you might want to login to your target machine and figure out what's going on there. In the meantime, if you are using a service like digital ocean, you should really contact them for further support00:28
ApplesInArraysIt's RIJX00:29
ApplesInArraysAlright. I'm back to 'df -i' showing 100% usage of /dev/simfs00:29
bubbasaureswolfy1339, .com00:30
nicetiesApplesInArrays: put port in root@ForeignIP's password: scp: /var/www/html//js.js: Disk quota exceeded00:30
swordsmanzpragmaticenigma so most decent solutions offer options for both00:30
ApplesInArraysIt's really a disk quota problem.00:30
ApplesInArraysNow I have to figure out how to move things around the server.00:30
swordsmanzas for specifics i really wouldent feel comfertable adviseing on one, there are a shit tonne of ways to do that kinda thing00:30
wolfy1339even .com doesn't work00:30
ApplesInArrays/dev/simfs is 100% full. /dev/ and /run are empty00:30

ApplesInArraysIs it off topic?00:32
ApplesInArraysI'm trying to diagnose space00:33
ApplesInArraysI was considering a possibility00:33
pragmaticenigmaApplesInArrays, talking about your service provider is offtopic00:33
Nathan2055When loading Kubuntu (or any Ubuntu derivative for that matter) into VirtualBox, should you choose Ubuntu or Linux (Other) as the OS?00:33
ApplesInArraysAlright, fine. /dev/simfs     175000 175000     0  100% /  is the only issue at hand. there is no service provider.00:33
nicetiesApplesInArrays: if it's not the standard port. You need to tell it what port to use. And no matter what your router or even your internet provider might block the port. Your router you can fix.00:33
swordsmanzApplesInArrays dont expect internal disk managment to give you acurate readings if you are useing a hyporvisor00:34
ApplesInArraysniceties: I figured out the SCP thing. I moved on to just figuring out what's happening with disk space on ForeignIP00:34
pragmaticenigmaNathan2055, you can use either. the setting is just for presets that are considered optimal for the system you are installing.00:34
gadsdinI think I found what's wrong. My actual root partition isn't mounting properly on boot. Any ideas why this might be?00:34
pragmaticenigmaNathan2055, it just makes sure the default memory, networking and disk space setups are optimal00:35
ApplesInArrays#du -ch <--- this command tells me how much I have free? I get 36k00:35
Nathan2055So all that does is pull the default settings, which I usually change anyway?00:35
swordsmanzApplesInArrays this is a hypervised box right ?00:36
nicetiesApplesInArrays: what's wrong with a simpler protocol like ftp or smb00:36
ApplesInArraysSorry, let me look that word up.00:36
ApplesInArraysniceties: I'm no longer transfering files anywhere.00:36
swordsmanzApplesInArrays a vps00:36
ApplesInArraysIt's a VM00:36
ApplesInArraysbut according to rules, there is no service provider.00:36
Nathan2055pragmaticenigma: So all that does is pull the default settings, which I usually change anyway?00:37
swordsmanzApplesInArrays well ubuntus disk managment is not going to give you acurate readings00:37
ApplesInArraysswordsmanz: I see. I know of 'dh -i' and 'du -ch'. 'dh -i' says I'm using up my whole disk.00:37
ApplesInArraysAlright, so ubuntu disk usage is not useful for VM. Is that what you're saying?00:38

ApplesInArraysI thought htop was telling me the whole story.00:41
ApplesInArrayshtop, du -ch, df -i, scp00:41
phixrocketeer: I see00:41
phixrocketeer: well you can pastebin the command and I can check it if you like00:42
rocketeerAnd it's driving me nuts because there is an encrypt option in disks but it's greyed out00:42
nicetiesApplesInArrays: sounds like you punched through only to find out your not authorized to access the drive. You have no rw privileges.00:42
ApplesInArraysniceties: for the last time, I'm not transfering files.00:42
bubbasauresrocketeer, Just be aware that encrypting will keep others out including you if something goes wrong.00:42

ApplesInArraysniceties: it's not.00:45
rocketeerman cryptsetup is probably the most opaque pages I've seen in a long time00:46

nicetiesApplesInArrays: so you wAnt to securely move the sql01:01
ApplesInArraysI know I can type "python script.py" and it will run the script... Does that mean 'python' is the program and 'script.py' is just a parameter?01:02
NegativeFlareApplesInArrays: Yes.01:02
ApplesInArraysWhy are some parameters passed with -[letter]?01:02
ApplesInArraysThis means that rm/dir/cd are all 'programs'01:02
Jordan_UApplesInArrays: Note that since linux is case sensitive, "RM" and "SCP" are actually not valid commands ("rm" and "scp" are though).01:03
ApplesInArrayswow, you're right.01:03
ApplesInArrayscommand not found01:03
gorelativeanyone here familiar with LVM?01:03
ApplesInArraysHowever, I read somewhere i could use nicknames or something.01:03
Jordan_UApplesInArrays: They're all commands, all of them except "cd" (which is a builtin command, which is probably more than you need to know right now) could also be called programs, but we usually just call these types of things "commands".01:04
ApplesInArraysOMG, 'alias' is amazing.01:04
ApplesInArraysOk, so some commands are 'built-in'01:05
ApplesInArraysThis is very interesting.01:05
swordsmanzJordan_U acrually mv is the only one that is a command, the others are all programmes01:05
ApplesInArraysWhat if I made a nice program called 'SCP' that does financial stuff, and I wanted to be 'apt-get install scp' ? Who decides the "SCP" part?01:05
ubuntu-studiothis is weird01:05
ApplesInArraysOh, Canonical?01:06
Jordan_Uswordsmanz: What definition are you using for "program"?01:06
ApplesInArraysNo wait, it's the repositories, right?01:06
ApplesInArraysThat's why sometimes you have to add repositories to get obscure programs01:06
swordsmanzJordan_U a programme that is separte from bash, that needs compileing and stuff that is its own programme01:07
ApplesInArraysand I already know that 'bash' comes with a loaded namespace already.01:07
ApplesInArraysand that you can extend it.01:07
swordsmanzin that it exists as a seperate entity and is a programme in its own right, and is totaly seperate from bash01:07
ApplesInArraysDoes that mean you could uninstall them?01:08
bekksApplesInArrays: "bash" is a shell and has no "namespace".01:08
swordsmanzApplesInArrays yes01:08
Jordan_Uswordsmanz: Which would also include "rm" and "dir".01:08
swordsmanzJordan_U yup also programmes01:08
bekksApplesInArrays: It has a set of built in commands, but thats not what you would call a "namespace" in programming languages.01:08
ApplesInArraysI added the path to PHP to the 'namespace'01:09
ApplesInArraysso I just have to type 'php script.php'01:09

ApplesInArraysmaybe 'namespace' is the wrong word.01:09

phixStanley00: also, what's with naming female character with the same letter for the first and last name?01:23
wonderworldApplesInArrays: no. every file has it's own unique inode. a mysql db consists of files for every table. one table in your mysql db, no matter how big it is, consumes one inode01:23
ApplesInArrayswonderworld: that makes sense.01:23
Asblarfit sure does01:24

bubbasaureslicnep, No idea what you mean my sudo mount, unless it's fstab to edit, should be gksudo01:36
ApplesInArraysNow. I figure that one solution to my problem would be to create a *.sh with "rm /tmp/*" . but then it would need to run as sudo, yeah?01:36
ApplesInArraysahh, nm.01:36
licnepbubbasaures: i mean i'm mounting it from a terminal with "sudo mount", but even mounting it from nautilus the result is the same, i'll try your line and see if it works01:37
SrPxDoes anyone know why ubuntu installed in parallels desktop on a Macbook Pro Retina host, with 2880x1800 (native) resolution, looks blurry? http://i.imgur.com/O6XGNtS.png doesn't look like it is 2880x180001:38

ApplesInArraysJordan_U: I only find cookie Curls in there. PHP Sessions are saved elsewhere01:50
samthewildoneQuality does matter but, I don't want my image taking more than 1 second to load.01:51
ApplesInArraysOh, maybe I will just delete files that start with "CURLCOOKIE"01:51
ApplesInArraysThat seems smarter01:51
lotuspsychjeSrPx: yeah its using the product: Accelerated Virtual Video Adapter from paralel01:51
Jordan_UApplesInArrays: That sounds much more reasonable.01:51

jMylesI've been using a dual-monitor set up for a few days without issue (the built-in display on an "all-in-one" and an external via HDMI), but now suddenly the built-in won't work.  When, for example, I try to disable / enable it or change resolutions, it just briefly flashes the picture and then goes off.03:38
jMylesOf course in the back of my head, I'm dreading that this might be a hardware problem; it doesn't seem to behave properly before boot either.03:39
CtrlAltDeliciouslotuspsychje: True, but theres not really an abundance of them.03:39

SuccessLee- why the highlight?03:40

CtrlAltDeliciousIs there any way to get rid of Unity in the newest Ubuntu/03:45
CtrlAltDeliciousthats my big question.03:45
lotuspsychje!notunity | CtrlAltDelicious03:45
ubottuCtrlAltDelicious: Ubuntu 11.10 and higher use the !Unity desktop environment by default.  To use GNOME Shell instead, install the "gnome-shell" package and investigate "gnome-tweak-tool".  For GNOME Fallback mode, which is similar to GNOME 2, install "gnome-panel". Both packages will place entries in the Sessions dropdown.03:45
SrPxHello, I've booted an ubuntu usb stick on macbook pro retina. It didn't recognize the partition I made using disk utils. I selected the option to chose my own partition. I found the one I made and clicked it. It asked me to chose between several different options (FAT, paging... etc). What should I chose?03:46
bubbasauresCtrlAltDelicious, sure install a different DE.03:46
CtrlAltDeliciousAh, also you used to be able to right click and edit icons to, for example, in wireshark add the gksudo command. Now when I click its just UI options.03:46

pragmaticenigmabonesdds, it's not possible to mount an external drive before root... unless the external drive is bootable04:12
pragmaticenigmabonesdds, if that is the case, you need to access your system bios or firmware and change the bootdrive order04:12
bonesddsblkid lists usb drive as sda1, 2nd usb drive as sdb1 and root drive as sdc1.04:13
bonesddsGood tip about bios. Haven't checked there. Thanks.04:14
bonesddsNew to fstab and all this mounting stuff.04:14
SrPxWhen I boot the ubuntu install pen drive it says "the current computer has no detected operating system". It asks to erase my whole HD. I don't want that, I want to dual boot! What do I do? There is a "something else" option... but I'm not sure I understand what it will do.04:14

ubottuTo see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)04:18

nicetiesSrPx: does it see all the partitions04:19
bonesddsHave done blkid, lsusb, lspci...Have all the info other than how to fix it and will now try ObrienDave's suggestion.04:19
SrPxI guess so, I don't understand though. I recognize my main partition (300+ gb) and the partition I reservd for ubuntu (~100gb) but there are other (150mb~) partitions I don't recognize04:20
nicetiesbonesdds: don't matter04:20
slainrI dont what to solve this display problem04:20
slainrI dont know*04:20
Bashing-ombonesdds: If UUIDs are inplace the name 'sda1' in booting does not matter .04:20
nicetiesSrPx: is it Windows 704:21
bonesddsUsing UUID mounting, so it all works fine. Maybe it's just my OCD, but would like it back to the way it was.04:21
pragmaticenigmabonesdds, there are not drive letter assignments like in windows. It does not matter what the device's handle is in /dev/sd* ... the linux kernel knows where the devices are and maps them as it needs to04:22
nicetiesSrPx: and is the machine use bios or efi04:22
bubbasauresniceties, its a mac04:23
Bashing-ombonesdds: Good explanation also : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=283131 <-bodhi.zazen -Understanding fstab .04:23
bonesddsI realize all that and thank you for trying to help. Call it intellectual challenge that I want to figure out. Should be a way to delay the mounting of the usb externals until the root drive gets mounted. Will read link. Thanks.04:23
nicetiesSrPx: Are you using the 64 bit version of ubuntu04:23
SrPxniceties: it is a macbook pro04:24
SrPxthe one you download from http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop04:24

bonesddsold 32 bit hp proliant server, headless, so ssh and command line are only options.04:26
SrPxI have it....04:26
nicetiesSrPx: install it. Shut off computer. Not a restart.04:27
bonesddsBased on recent comments, it doesn't sound like changing bios settings will change anything.04:28
pragmaticenigmabonesdds, no, bios doesn't affect the OS once the OS has taken over. I can understand it's a little annoying that what should be your main drive might not be listed as /dev/sda; however it is also why the documentation recommends not using the device path to reference a drive anymore04:29
nicetiesSrPx: then start up into osx. Using disk utility shrink the drive enough to install ubuntu but don't partition.04:30
SrPxniceties: hm04:31
pragmaticenigmabonesdds, what is likely happening is the UUID generated for the external is alphanumerically listed before the internal drives, which is possibly why the ordering ends up that way04:31
nicetiesSrPx: Did you instal refind04:32
bonesddsI'll right, I'll give up trying to make things the way I want them and accept the way they are. Thanks for the info.04:32
bonesddsAlright. (sp?)04:33
nicetiesSrPx: Did you power off not a restart. After starting did refind boot manger show.04:34
SrPxnot now, a few moments ago, it is working04:34
bonesddsIt's not the order of UUIDs. Good idea though. The first digit is 0,4,7,9 of the four drives and the a,b,c,d don't follow the order.04:35
nicetiesSrPx: don't boot ubuntu USB yet. Boot into osx and use disk utility to shrink the drive. Don't partition it.04:35
bonesddsThanks anyway. Good night.04:35

bubbasauresjamie_, Yeah.05:34
jamie_bubbasaures: I5 quad core and 4gb05:34
bubbasauresjamie_, Thanks, ubuntu in it's stock swap state will start swapping a little more than using half of that 4 gigs, you can change this with swappiness.05:35
jamie_bubbasaures: what is the problem occuring05:36
jamie_and I tend to uber-multi task05:36
jamie_never ran into this problem before05:36

nicetiesjamie_: disable swap if you have enough memory.05:37
jamie_how much would be concidder enough05:37
nicetiesjamie_: 4-8 gb05:38
bubbasauresjamie_, Do you know what I'm talking about?05:38
jamie_bubbasaures: yes05:38
jamie_it currently says i am using 10 mb of swap out of 3949 mb05:38
bubbasauresjamie_, This is a guess we or you have to like do the research dude. ; )05:39
nicetiesOpen system monitor jamie_ . See how much swap space is used.05:39
jamie_I just said that05:39
bubbasauresjamie_, So you have changed the swap05:39
jamie_I have htop running05:39
jamie_nope, its has been at 10 since i started htop05:40
nicetiesjamie_: also system monitor you can sort processes to see if any are spiking the CPU. It may not be the swap.05:41
jamie_it is upstart, using about 24-40 percent05:41
bubbasauresjamie_, run this command and pastebin all of it cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness05:42
bubbasauresactually you can just post it05:42
nicetiesjamie_: when did this start happening. Did you reboot.05:43
bubbasauresjamie_, That is your swappiness, not sure what the "10" you mention is, change the swapiness to say 10 itself.05:43
jamie_the 10 was 10 mb of the swap being used05:43
bubbasaureshttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq read this on changing the swappiness05:44
bubbasauresjamie_, I never asked you how much swap used, on a soinning HD swapping will make it freeze05:44
jamie_miss read sorry05:45
bubbasauresjamie_, I missread as well, I was not sure we were even communicating. ;)05:46
nicetiesjamie_: sometimes swap partition fails to get mounted at boot05:47
jamie_i dont know..... I use linux on a daily basis and have been testing since 9.... and have never ran into this problem.... and have been running 14.10 for several months now... and this just started today05:47
bubbasauresjamie_, I use a conky to watch this stuff myself, there are 1000's out there people have coded, a thread on the ubuntu forums of them.05:47
jamie_and i have restarted twice05:47
jamie_nice.... I kinda almost fell behind on ubuntu due to fxos05:48
bubbasauresjamie_, If your swapping on a spinning HD you will see a slow down, or freeze or even what seems to be a crash.,05:48
nicetiesjamie_: Did you open system monitor and see if swap space is being used.05:48
jamie_yes there is 10mb of 3900 mb being used05:49
bubbasauresSSD here not even noticeable when swapping05:49
nicetiesjamie_: then it's not swap causing issue.05:50
akurilinHey guys, am I correctly understanding that a default 14.04 server does not run ntpdate by default?05:50

jamie_Yea... i really need to get a new hd... my good one broke about a year ago.... and i just shoved what I had in it... 75gb hd...... and i updated the rest of the computer and forgot the hd05:50
bubbasauresjamie_, If you change the swappiness you would not be swapping with the exact same use is all. We have gotten stuck however on a simple test and a guess really, but probably the issue.05:50
jamie_I dont know for sure... i can run test for yall to help diagnose..... i just really need this to work..... I work on my computer and go to school on my computer05:51
nicetiesjamie_: something else is firing upstart to crush your CPU05:52
jamie_is there something yall know of i can run to further diagnose.......05:52
jamie_I can work all day from errors.... Im not sure if its not telling me what is going on05:53
bubbasauresjamie_, You could just turn the swap off and see if you clear up, before changing anything, the memory is about 60% use is all before swapping.05:57
jamie_you want me to set the swappieness to 005:58
bubbasauresjamie_, That does not shut off swap, that link tells you this I believe, from the command line or gparted to turn it off.05:59
jamie_okay one sec06:00
bubbasauressudo swapoff -a06:01
jamie_is that a temp change06:01
bubbasauresjamie_, Yeah just turns it off, you can turn it back on06:01

jamie_but also on the other part, will it disable the swap for hibernation06:06
bubbasauresjamie_, when of yes. this is just a test.06:06
bubbasauresback on and your good to hibernate06:06
jamie_okay im gonna do what i was doing when it kept freezing06:07
bubbasauresjamie_, What we are doing is isolating if the swapping is the issue.06:07

jamie_bubbasaures: is there a way to set it to still be enable for hibernation06:37
bubbasauresjamie_, Cool, Turn the swap on and it will hibernate, you should just change the swappiness to 10 per the link\.06:37
bubbasauressudo swapon -a06:38
bubbasaureswill tuen it back on06:38
jamie_okay what exactly does that nuber mean.... it takes haveing only 10 percent of your ram left before using swap06:38
MACscrcan i disable gpg checks fo a single repo like i can with yum repos?06:38

niytroim currently running live lubuntu disc because the encrypted install failed on a known bug saying unsafe swap detected, there is a workaround with the swapoff command but I would like to have everything encrypted so could someone help me with setting up partitions07:47
cfhowlettniytro, workaround; switch off /swap, set up the encrypt, then /swapon07:48
niytrocfhowlett, do i setup something manually?07:49
niytrocfhowlett, im still n00b with linux sorry07:49
cfhowlettniytro, here's what I'd do based on your description; set up your partitions including an empty space for the swap, i.e. DO NOT SET THE SWAP during install.  get things where you want/encrypted.  THEN do a post-installation swap07:50
cfhowlett!swap | niytro07:50
ubottuniytro: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info07:50
niytrocfhowlett, sry I disconnected for a sec, I read that its better to encrypt the swap as well so the key cant be taken from the data07:52

DrManhattanTheVerge, that happened to me when I did a dist-upgrade on my kernel08:35
TheVergehow did you fix it DrManhattan08:35
DrManhattanTheVerge, I used the previous kernel08:36
Ben64Not really relevant to the issue here though08:36
niytrocfhowlett, im f&$%#*@ proud of myself08:36

ubottuniytro,: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info08:42
cfhowlettniytro, actually, pretty sure that if you add partitions under an encrypted systems, new partitions inherit the encrypted protection08:43

cfhowlett!md5sum MaxFrames12:04
MaxFramescan a bad usb drive cause lubuntu to morph into busybox?12:04
cfhowlettMaxFrames, bad hardware can do all manner of strange things.12:05
cfhowlett!md5sum | MaxFrames12:05
ubottuMaxFrames: 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_Windows12:05
oddeyedMaxFrames: Busybox isn't another distro, it's just a shell which you get dropped to if stuff goes wrong.12:05
MaxFramesI see12:06
MaxFramescould it be it can't boot on the hardware?12:06
MaxFramesi.e. good iso, good usb drive, incompatibility with the hardware?12:06
cfhowlettMaxFrames, test: get a different drive.  but verify your .iso first12:06
MaxFramesI don't have another usb drive :/ I can only redownload the iso and/or md5 test it12:07
cfhowlettMaxFrames, ALWAYS verify your .iso!12:07
MaxFramescfhowlett: the only reason I didn't do that yet is that I already used this very ISO, multiple times12:07
cfhowlettMaxFrames, md5sum : 1. .iso  2. USB12:08
cecjafirst time you install an iso from this stick? maybe it's an old grub fucking with you12:08
cfhowlettcecja, good point but please - !language12:08
MaxFramesI have used this stick before12:08
MaxFrameswhen I boot, it shows a blue unetbootin screen with just "default" and "exit" as choices12:09
MaxFramesit should have shown the lubuntu live screen12:09
cfhowlettMaxFrames, in the time since I first suggested you verify your media, you could have done both and eliminated 2 possible sources of trouble.12:09

ngaiois there much point in filling a bug for a repeatable kernel crash on 14.10?12:51
cfhowlettstevenm, best to ask the support channels/forums of those products about their development protocols.   not ubuntu sponsored or managed12:51
stevenmcfhowlett, it's ubuntu that is choosing to package the latest firefox and put it in main - even if the LTS is meant to be frozen for new features (security fixes and bugs only) - so it's ubuntu making that exception12:52
stevenmcfhowlett, nothing to do with the original authors12:52
OerHeksngaio, sure, first look if there is a known related bugreport to confirm.12:53
stevenme.g. firefox is now on version 35 - it's in 12.04 and 14.04 main - but it only got to version 35 only 3 days ago12:53
ngaioOerHeks, even if it's a hardware problem and the Ubuntu kernel team may not have access to that particular hardware? (an external USB hard drive case)12:54

ngaioOerHeks, to report it so it's of any use, do I need to install one of the 600MB kernel ddeb packages?13:00
cfhowlettstevenm, I can't find it but there actually was a discussion on the issue you raise.  If I can regurgitate from memory: some packages, e.g. firefox, are considered critical and qualify for update during the LTS lifetime.  Some packages are not so critical, so no upgrade.  Sorry, no more I can add to this.13:01

OerHeksngaio, i am thinking about what package you need to file a bug against, maybe the kernel ?13:03

mucuspragmaticenigma: that is the intent14:22
mucusdirectory + all contained14:22
pragmaticenigmamucus, depending on the folder, you may also want to change the owner and group.  for that it would be "chown newowner:newgroup -R /path/to/dir"14:23
mucuswhat differentiates group from owner?14:23
pragmaticenigmablu3ski3s, because 14.04 is LTS support14:24
pragmaticenigmamucus, different permissions can be set based on how a user is accessing a file or directory14:24
mucushm, then i better do group and owner14:24
pragmaticenigmamucus, if I own the file, but want all the system admins to have access as well, I can change the group to the sysadmins group and set the permissions as needed14:25
pragmaticenigmamucus, so I would still have ownership of the file, but the group could access it as well.  It's not as important in a single user environment, but more so when multiple users use the same machine14:25
mucusbut can't anyone with sudo access the file?14:25
blu3ski3spragmaticenigma, sorry i thought 14.10 was LTS, im on 14.04 too14:26

chebitor rename this.14:38
chebitperhaps the video card settings?14:38
f3lixHow would I go about "squashing" uid/gid on an ext4 or btrfs filesystem? Like an NTFS or vfat filesystem is mounted — everything is owned by root, but always 666 or 777 and everything written there automagically becomes the same…14:39

blu3ski3s5650 here from memory14:39
blu3ski3si dont have any issues on 14.0414:40
pragmaticenigmachebit, video card is unlikely preventing you from renaming files in nautilus. can you describe, in the best detail you can, what happens as you attempt to rename the folder. include all the steps taken from when you click on rename to when you finish.14:40
chebitWith 14.04 it was all good !14:40
blu3ski3sany reason why you upgraded?14:41
pragmaticenigmaf3lix, NTFS doesn't support unix/linux file persmission. the driver that allows you to write to the drive is setting fake permissions to allow the OS to read and write14:41
chebitpragmaticenigma, ok I'll try14:42
f3lixpragmaticenigma: exactly, and I'd like to mimic that behavior on an fs that does support proper permissions14:42
pragmaticenigmaf3lix, that is not recommended or best practice. that will open your system up to all sorts of vulnerabilities14:44
f3lixpragmaticenigma: i know, but I'm wondering if it's possible14:44
chebitThe other problem is on gedit - text editor, sometimes blinks and closes when It's has long text, I 'll try see log files.14:44
f3lixpragmaticenigma: and to be precise, it'll open up that FILEsystem, not my system ;)14:44
pragmaticenigmaf3lix, I don't fully understand what you are trying to accomplish then.14:45
f3lixpragmaticenigma: I'm trying to mount a regular linux filesystem so that it behaves like a FUSE-mounted NTFS or vfat filesystem would: Squashing all content to be owned by root:root, but readable and writable by all14:46
survietamineafter adding a line with "limit nofile 50000 50000" into some upstart config file. I can see this is applied only after a reboot. Is it possible to apply it without rebooting, please?14:46
pragmaticenigmaf3lix, check out the documentation for fstab14:48
pragmaticenigma!fstab | f3lix14:48
ubottuf3lix: The /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions14:48
f3lixpragmaticenigma: in particular?14:48
f3lixassuming you have an idea on how to do it?14:49
pragmaticenigmaf3lix, you can set options when the drive or partition is mounted there... I don't recall the exact method or options, but I've done something similar to mount samba shares locally14:49
mindless_chaosOkay, Seems like every time I update, it breaks my video driver. I have the AMD prop driver installed, and I am running 14.04. SO I have an update pop up today, I checked and it is set to leave my driver alone, and there are no driver and or kernel updates....14:50
mindless_chaosWHAT TO DO ...14:50
f3lixpragmaticenigma: I'm assuming you haven't read the fstab man page yourself, as mount options aren't discussed here; they're totally up to the fs to implement ;) And CIFS and NFS are a totally different ballgame, here we have e.g. root_squash to do it. Which is why I specifically asked about ext4 or btrfs. But thanks anyway :)14:51

Guest58282I want to figure out why I can't burn a video DVD with K3b, brasero, devede, or dvd styler.  I found a command line thing called "hdparm" for my SATA DVD burner ... could someone walk me through how to use that?17:52
ActionParsnipGuest58282: devede will make an ISO which you can then open in any burner. I like xfburn personally17:52
SchrodingersScatI don't think hdparm does what you think it does?17:53
Guest58282ActionParsnip: I'd be willing to try, but what concerns me is that I want to be sure that it isn't a hardware problem before I try something.  The video files are in FLV format (off of Youtube)17:53
Guest58282SchrodingersScat: What do you think hdparm does and what do you think I want to do with it?17:54
SchrodingersScatGuest58282: I could ask you the same.17:54

Yakisoba-Is it possible to make the laptop with the cover closed worked some time, and then turn off? Explain: I run the program, close the cover, notebook works, and after 30 minutes the laptop itself shuts down?17:55
Guest58282SchrodingersScat: I typed "man -k SATA" and the only thing that came backwas this.  My idea is to look at the SATA DVD burner to see if there is a hardware problem.17:55
Mobixjhutchins,  how can i do it?17:55
SchrodingersScatGuest58282: normally I see it being used for hdd functions, like quick erase, etc.  If you're having trouble either authoring a dvd or burning an ISO, then those seem like different issues.17:55
Guest58282SchrodingersScat: Before I do anything else17:55
Mobixi didnt have no Xorg.conf17:55
Yakisoba-my question was about Ubuntu17:56
Guest67871just done system update and now xubuntu wont open my windows drives...any ideas how i get round to mount them17:56
Guest58282SchrodingersScat: ActionParsnip: Is FLV from youtube normally the correct video format (as opposed to 3gp or mp4)?17:56
SchrodingersScatGuest58282: not for dvd, should use mpeg, but that's why you either convert yourself or use something like devede to convert it and package it up in the vob files, etc.17:57
undecimGuest67871, Have you rebooted since the update?17:57
ActionParsnipGuest58282: not sure, as long as devede doesn't moan then I assume its fine17:57

undecimGuest67871, Did you follow the instructions in the error?17:59
Guest67871undecim,  im a newbie, dont even understand what it says18:00
undecimGuest67871, Basically, when you closed Windows, it didn't shut down, but hibernated18:00
undecimGuest67871, So now the Windows partition is "still being used" even though the Windows OS is away18:00

Guest67871undecim,  hows that possible, it wasnt like this before update18:01
undecimGuest67871, You can either use the terminal to mount it "read-only" so that you can't change any files (i can help with that), or you can start Windows again and shut down windows properly18:01
Guest67871undecim,  what should i do then ?18:01
undecimGuest67871, You haven't used windows lately?18:01
undecimGuest67871, i.e. since you were last able to open the drive?18:02
Guest67871undecim,  i did, its the same pc /dual boot, so i dont understand how is this possible since i have now log in xubuntu18:02
undecimGuest67871, I would definitely try the Windows shutdown before continuing.18:02
Guest67871undecim,  so how should i shut it down ? i dont understand18:03
undecimGuest67871, it's possible that the error is not correct in what the problem is. If18:03
undecimGuest67871, What version of windows?18:03
Guest67871windows 8.118:03
squintyGuest67871:  you may have caused an improper shutdown on the Windows side of things.  boot into windows and shutdown properly.  you can also run chkdsk on the windows side to make sure your file system is ok18:04
undecimGuest67871, Have you disable Fast startup? That might have something to do with the drive state18:04
Guest67871undecim,  8.1 pro media centre18:04
undecimGuest67871, I don't think you can even boot Xubuntu with fast startup enabled, but it won't hurt to check.18:04
undecimlet me find a link to the info for that18:04
Guest67871is that in BIOS ?18:04

Guest67871squinty, undecim  is there a command in trminal to check current state of windows..e.ii hibernating/in use,etc..??18:06

TingelTangelTomYepp 14.10 LTS18:22
ActionParsnipTingelTangelTom: 14.10 is not LTS18:23
ActionParsnipTingelTangelTom: 14.10 is only supported til July 201518:23
undecimTingelTangelTom, So what you need to do is create a custom launcher script18:23

TingelTangelTomright undecim18:24
TingelTangelTomi look at the link, thx dude18:24
undecimTingelTangelTom, For the exec line, you need something like Exec=sh -c 'command1 & ; command 2 &'18:24
undecimThis will run both commands (apps) simultaenously18:25
undecimYou could also just write a shell script and put it on your desktop. It's quicker, but uglier (no custom icon, no option to add to unity menu)18:26

ActionParsnipmacobo_: try:    source ~/.bashrc18:55
undecimActionParsnip, No, I mean there is launch.sh on ~/Desktop, and I want to launch it withotu a terminal18:55
bubbasauresDominique, sounds like a uefi bios and a uefi boot.18:55

ActionParsnipundecim: so, in the background?18:55
macobo_ActionParsnip: I know how to get rid of the error once it appears, but I'm curious as to why it's happening.18:56

Dominiquebubbasaures: the fat32 is allocated and so are the others; there is a 244MiB ext2 partition which I recon is the actual boot partition, and yes the machine is likely in uefi as it's a business laptop which normally comes with Windows18:58

Guest66688undecim, ok thx18:58
ActionParsnipundecim: does it need to run at startup each time?18:58
macobo_ActionParsnip: Interesting theory, what causes you to think that? If I remove the explicit environment munging from the script, after running it it still doesn't echo my keypresses.18:59
DominiqueI'm not really asking for help on how to fix it, just wondering if it's a bug that it creates a partition with fat32, seems like one to me.18:59
ActionParsnipundecim: you could add it to /etc/rc.local   use su to run it as your user and you may need a "sleep" command to add a pause if the command requires the X server to be running18:59

mittNedal: sorry, didn't see; install synaptic,then it will find broken dependencies19:23
mittor in terminal19:23
bekksNedal: So whats the content of that window popping up, regarding the missing dependencies?19:23
nokiomanzHi all, My machine memory is getting lower as day go by after a few search i found out that the command slabtop show that dentry is getting bigger and bigger. Is there a way to find out what is filling the dentry?19:24
Nedalbekks it says  Package depencies connot be resolved ( This error could  could be caused by required additional software packages which are missing or not installable)19:25
bekksnokiomanz: Just look at the VSZ and RSS columns of "ps aux", e.g.19:25
bekksNedal: nothing more?19:26
mittNedal: this means you do not have some repositories19:26
Nedalbekks Furthermore there could be a conflict between software packages which are not allowed to be installed at the same time.19:26
Nedalmitt What should I do ?19:26
avid_fanNedal: Looks like Totem has a support IRC channel of its own, irc://irc.gimp.org/#totem. You might also try there.19:27
mittNedal: first try install these packages via terminal, it will say what is missing, then go to http://packages.ubuntu.com/, find missing ones and add repositories19:28

BluesKajSuperLag, yeah, a little humour is good when try to solve problems :)19:30
nokiomanzbekks: I did but nothing out of the ordinary which is what got me confused19:30
avid_fanNedal: What version of Ubuntu, Firefox, and the Totem plugin are you using? Is it possible to get the URL with the audio you're trying to play?19:31
nokiomanzbekks: for information the dentry says it is 11G in size19:33
Nedalavid_fam Ububtu LTS 14.04  Firefox 35.0 .. and I dont know what Totem plugin means19:35
bishopstixUrgent help needed, I have downloaded a package from nooblabs apps, it did not fully install, now I can remove it nor reinstall it, and it has paralyzed my apt-get, can't update or upgrade or do anything. Also my boot space is full! I have tried everything clean, autoclean, synaptic manager, etc19:39
bekksnokiomanz: That value is totally meaningless without seeing ps and free -m :)19:39
mittbishopstix: you can locate installed parts of the package with catfish or like it, and delete them manually19:40
BluesKajbishopstix, sudo dpkg -r nameofpackage , then try to reinstall if you're brave :)19:41
TheVergeHey folks19:41

TheVergeany thoughts19:43
TheVergeI'm running ubuntu 14.0419:43
mittbishopstix: or force the removing of your package19:43
bishopstixmitt: the problem is that ubuntu is not recognizing that the package is installed19:44
bishopstixmitt: so can't purge, can't remove can't use dpkg etc19:44
apb1963 I had to reboot this morning because kwin was hogging the cpu, load was over 12... and when it came back up the resolution was all wrong.  I can't figure out how to change the resolution.   ubuntu 14.04 with kde.19:45
avid_fanNedal: It's definitely old, so I'm not sure how relavent it is, but Totem is/was a media player for Ubuntu. It has/had a plugin for Firefox. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FirefoxPlugins#Totem_Plugin19:46
mittbishopstix: then locate this package in your system, parts with catfish19:46
avid_fanNedal: There might be a different plugin for Firefox that would allow you to play the content from the website.19:48
xanguaavid_fan: totem is the default gnome player, what website¿19:48

semitonesHey all -- i have dropbox in ubuntu's startup programs, but it never starts unless I run it manually. Can someone help me troubleshoot this so it will start automatically?19:53
bishopstixmitt: installed catfish from .tar.gz (as I can't use apt-get) after running it, it can't find my package..19:53
bubbasauressemitones, This your command dropbox start -i19:54
BluesKajNedal, install ubuntu-restricted-extras19:54
Jordan_Usemitones: How did you configured "ubuntu's startup programs"?19:54
semitonesJordan_U, the startup programs application from unity's search. and bubbasaures, it is ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd19:55
mittbishopstix: don't forget to change the folders you checking, from $USER to File system19:55
avid_fanTheVerge: What are you using for playback?19:55
TheVergeSMPlayer at the moment19:56
OerHeks undecim not yet AFAIK, maybe this page is any help creating such app https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UnityLaunchersAndDesktopFiles19:56
bishopstixmitt: yes just did that and so if I manually delete this it will be good?19:56
mittbishopstix: yes, this will work fine19:56
semitonesJordan_U, are you familiar with the startup programs application?19:57
semitones"Startup Applications"19:57
bubbasauressemitones, that was from dropboxes load to the starup applications19:57
squintysemitones:  if you didn't use the dropbox installer from the dropbox site, suggest you try that.  after initial install, click on dropbox in menu, and the rest of the install should proceed.  dropbox will automatically set your system up to start dropbox upon booting19:57
bubbasaurestheir load19:57
undecimI justed helped someone create one and the process was longer and more error-prone than previous Ubuntu versions. Used to be I could just write a shell script, chmod a+x, then double-click it. The click-to-launch doesn't work anymore19:57
semitonessquidly, I did use it though, but it didn't automatically start up19:57
avid_fanTheVerge: I've not used SMPlayer, but have you tried to use MPLayer straight from command-line?19:57
undecimIt's a regression, in my book.19:57
NedalBlueKaj what s that ?19:57
TheVergeavid_fan, no i havent19:58
semitonesbubbasaures, I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand19:58
TheVergeavid_fan, although I believe SMPlayer is an MPlayer front end19:58
NinjaCowboyMy Windows parition is the first partiton on my hard disk, and my Ubuntu partition is the second. Is there a way to shrink a partition from the beginning of it? By that, I mean shrinking the Ubuntu partition from the beginning to make more room for the Windows partition.19:58
xanguabishopstix: why you can't use apt? and if you install from soruce it won't appear in your package manager of course19:58
semitonessquinty, when I installed it, the main installer didn't point to the latest version, so I found the latest version and installed that using whatever instructions it had19:58
avid_fanTheVerge: Right, if you try to play from the terminal, you might get some output from MPlayer as to why the issue(s).19:59
TheVergeavid_fan, which driver should I use, the open source one or the proprietary one?19:59
bubbasauressemitones, close dropbox and run that command in the terminal. Dropbox on install puts the startup application together for you.19:59
avid_fanTheVerge: Also, I'd suggest trying VLC for playback.19:59
avid_fanTheVerge: I can't speak to the AMD driver. Don't have one.19:59
squintysemitones:  please reread what I typed.  I just installed it on another box using that exact method last night without any problems19:59
mittTheVerge: my favourite one is Parole media player, never had problems with it20:00
squintyNinjaCowboy:  http://gparted.sourceforge.net/display-doc.php?name=help-manual20:00
semitonesbubbasaures, I don't think I have "dropbox" on a command on my system20:00

bubbasauressemitones, are you going to try?20:00
semitonesi have a simple problem20:00
semitonesbubbasaures, yeah "dropbox is not installed"20:01
semitonesI have a simple problem that a command I want to run at startup is not running20:01
mittsemitones: first to know if startup programme is running or not you need to reboot20:02
bubbasauressemitones, YOU say it can be started than it is not installed, that makes no sense.20:02
jrghm. i was discussing this earlier20:03

mittbishopstix: compile that noobslab package from the source, if it's Ambiance or whatever colour suite, they provide the source tarballs on their website20:09

bubbasauresmaduko, Ah, bummer, I would address that if i were me, you want to be careful if you want the stuff inside, if at all possible now.20:12
undecimmaduko, You should be able to change the keyboard back from a vt20:13
madukoundecim: vt? virtual terminal?20:14
undecimmaduko, press ctrl+alt+f1, log in, type "export DISPLAY=:0", and you should be able to run xmodmap as if it were in a terminal on your desktop20:14
undecimmaduko, assuming that :0 is your current display. you can use the "w" command to check20:14
bubbasauresundecim, really where when locked out?20:14
madukoundecim: thanks, I'll give it a shot right now20:14

TheVergeavid_fan, I installed the gui using apt-get install ubuntu-desktop from the server edition20:17
squintybishopstix:  use synaptic package manager to remove older kernels.  recommended is to leave one or two of the older ones for emergencies20:17
TheVergeavid_fan, how would I now remove it to get back to the server edition?20:17
bishopstixsquinty: ok thanks20:18
Ben_gdoes nobody know how I can fix the xbox360 gamepad emulation?20:18
squintybishopstix:  search for "linux-image" in synaptic (installed ones will have green box) also look for install  "-extra"'s associated with a linux image version20:19
undecimTheVerge, You could use a program called aptitude to deselect ubuntu-desktop, then reselect ubuntu-server. All ubuntu-desktop packages that are not part of ubuntu-server will be removed20:19
undecimTheVerge, There's probably some way to do the same thing with dpkg, but I couldn't tell you20:19
xanguaundecim: no, they won't; ubuntu-server is just a metapackage20:20
bishopstixsquinty: mark for complete removal?20:20

undecimxangua, I've done it before....20:20
undecimxangua, when you re-select ubunt-server, at adds all the packages it depends on20:20

undecimTheVerge, it is a curses applications20:21
mugetsuthere are no hard blocks or soft blocks, but none of my blue tooth devices are disoverable20:21

TheVergeundecim, a what lol20:22
Ben_gAnd I know xboxdrv is supposed to support it, but for some reason it just errors on my laptop20:22
undecimTheVerge, CLI application20:22
Ben_g(the PS3 drivers do work though)20:22
undecimTheVerge, curses just means that instead of being line-by-line, it has a gui-like screen. You'll see what I mean20:22
TheVergeundecim, now I see what you mean yes20:23
undecimTheVerge, The bottom section is called "Tasks"20:23
undecimTheVerge, In there you should find ubuntu-desktop and ubuntu-server20:23

undecimarshia, probably get a new USB20:44
arshiaundecim: I'm not sure is it destroyed or not. how to find that ??20:45
undecimarshia, Try "sudo dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/null" where /dev/sdX is your USB drive20:45
undecimarshia, if it runs into an error, then there is a problem with the drive20:45
undecimarshia, there's also a tool called badblocks for this sort of thing20:46
arshiaundecim: The terminal is not respondig ...20:47
undecimarshia, It will take a minute20:47
undecimarshia, it's reading every bit of the drive20:47
undecimarshia, If there is a read error, it will tell you20:47
undecimarshia, it doesn't test write though20:47
arshiaundecim: You said i should use badblocks. why ??20:48
undecimarshia, it is capable of testing write20:48
arshiahow to get badblocks without the terminal ???20:49
undecimarshia, You could also do "sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX".  just make absolutely sure that /dev/sdX is the right drive. It will write the entire drive with zeros20:49
undecimarshia, badblocks is command line application... i'm not sure if there is a GUI for it20:49
arshiaundecim: where is it ?20:50

squintygorelative: better to just state your problem rather than "does anyone...."  :-)     https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Debmirror     never used it myself so hopefully someone else will be able to chime in20:54
undecimarshia, That depends on the drive, the USB link, and the alignment pattern of Saturn, Neptune, Alpha Centauri, and several undiscovered heavenly bodies20:55
gorelativesquinty: yeah figured.. i run debmirror it syncs things up.. when i go to run apt-get update apt complains of binary-amd64/Packages missing20:55

arshiaThe drive is SilliconPower.20:56
arshia8 GB20:56
arshiaundecim: Why the filesystem is null ???20:57
undecimarshia, probably because the first sector was erased/corrupt20:57
arshiaundecim: What first sector ???20:57
undecimarshia, You can get an idea of how far along it is. Type "sudo killall -SIGUSR1 dd" in another terminal, then look at the terminal with the dd command20:58
undecimarshia, The first 512 bytes of the drive20:58
arshiaGot it.20:58
arshiaundecim, What will "sudo killall -SIGUSR1 dd" do ????20:58
isthisreallifeis it possible to set dolphin as default file manager in ubuntu?20:59
undecimarshia, sends a signal to all running dd processes that causes it to output its progress20:59
gorelativeThis is my question on askubuntu http://askubuntu.com/questions/574547/debmirror-not-downloading-packages-404-not-found20:59
undecimarshia, also try: sudo watch 'killall -SIGUSR1 dd'20:59

undecimarshia, I would stop at this point and try to create the FS with gparted21:06

undecimarshia, It might not write though. Create an fs and try copying files to it. Then make sure the files can be read and are identical to the source21:06
undecimarshia, use gparted to make a filesystem21:07
imbezolNeldogz: if it's properly unmounted you can just unplug it21:07
arshiaundecim, How to create a FS ???21:07
undecimarshia, use Gparted21:07
bekksarshia: Create a partition with a filesyste on it, using gparted.21:07
Neldogzimbezol, the reason I am looking for a command is to add it to a cronjob on shutdown events.. WoL conflicts with external hard disks.. Causes the system to reboot instead of shutdown if the external hard drive is plugged in and turned on.21:08

bekksarshia: BY clicking on the appropriate button in gparted?21:08
imbezolNeldogz: if the harddrive has power it's on.. there's no way to power it off21:08
Neldogzimbezol, if you open disks.. and you have an external hard drive connected.. do you also see a power off button?21:09
arshiabekks: I don't see any appropriate button .21:09
bekksarshia: So which buttons do you see? :)21:09
imbezolNeldogz: i don't have an external harddrive sorry21:09
Neldogzanyone know what command will correspond to this power off button in disks?21:10
undecimarshia, gparted.org/display-doc.php?name=help-manual#gparted-create-new-partition21:10
arshiaI don't know is it solved or not. i added a FAT32 filesystem to the USB.21:10
arshiathe default was FAT3221:11
Neldogzok more information, disks is actually gnome disks21:11
Neldogzand it uses udisks21:11
undecimarshia, now press the green check21:11
undecimarshia, And it will commit the changes21:11
pentagrassI'm using byobu (a wrapper for screen).. is there a way to protect a terminal from me hitting ctrl+c or ctrl+d??21:12
undecimIs it possible to sniff HCI traffic?21:13
kirklandpentagrass: define "protect"...21:13
undecimi.e. the link between Linux and the bluetooth hardware21:13
pentagrasskirkland: I don't want to accidentally hit ctrl+c and stop the process. I tried ctrl+s but I think that pauses the process21:13
arshiaundecim: I see a green box , and the fs is fat32 , is it ok ????21:13
undecimarshia, Sounds good21:14
kirklandpentagrass: sure, you can tell Byobu to just "ignore" all ctrl-c presses21:14
arshiaundecim: Well , lets test it !21:14
arshiaundecim: How to see the USB files ???? I don't see it ?21:15
arshia? __> .21:15
undecimarshia, After Gparted completes the changes, remove the USB and plug it back in21:15
bekksarshia: you have to copy files onto it...21:15
bekksgparted doest do that :)21:16

jrgtoo bad MS can't release some microVM that simply installs stuff like this. or virtualbox can run a faux kernel and forward it to the xserver21:26

chompyteward: I can't seem to find a dl link for it21:50

tewardbubbasaures: hence saying "humor me and test"21:51
bubbasauresteward, It was this "teward> chompy: (Java 8 is evil)"21:51

bubbasauresdude you are over the dege21:52
undecimarshia, I need you to go to paste.ubuntu.com and paste the dmesg output there21:52
undecimarshia, Then send me the link to the page you get21:52
arshiaundecim: Ok : http://paste.ubuntu.com/9763956/21:52
undecimarshia, Okay, nothing interesting there. Can you do the same with the command "sudo blkid"?21:53
bubbasauresapb1963, I can't be any clearer I afraid, you are making up terms, that does not help.21:53
arshiaundecim: http://paste.ubuntu.com/9763998/21:54
undecimarshia, Nothing indicating the drive is there.21:54
arshiaundecim: What is that meaning ???21:55
undecimarshia, it means Ubuntu does not see the drive21:55
arshiaundecim: Why the first time it saw it ????21:55
undecimarshia, compare the output of "lsusb" with the USB inserted and with the USB removed21:55
undecimarshia, Most likely because the USB drive or USB link is unstable (i.e broken)21:55
bekksOr because it is not mounted.21:56
undecimbekks, blkid will can unmounted drives21:56
bekksundecim: remember to empty the blkid cache before, using sudo blkid -g; then scan using sudo blkid21:57
undecimbekks, didn't know about that21:57
undecimarshia, see bekks' comment ^^^21:57

bubbasauresnoah, Give the hardware and the issue to the channel.22:01
arshiaundecim, I say why the USB is avilable at a time, after Eject , Unavilable and after another unplug , Returns ???!!!22:01
undecimarshia, Sometimes, that's how it breaks22:01
undecimarshia, Or the connection isn't good22:01
bekksarshia: So just unplug it and plug it back in.22:02
undecimarshia, Or your motherboard is messed up (try another USB and see if its the same problem)22:02
bubbasauresnoah, lspci in the terminal will show the wifi info22:02
noahbubbasaures: I can connect, but network-manager is having trouble managing the secrets22:02

Neldogzbekks, that option does not exist22:03
noahbubbasaures: don't know, but syslog calls them secrets.22:04
bubbasauresnoah, Not recognizable by me, maybe others know this, sorry about that.22:04
bekksNeldogz: my udisksctl doesnt support power-off, too.22:05
bekksMathis: On what?22:05
frozenlockI decided to try the proprietary AMD drivers. When I saw no real benefit, I switched back to using the X.org X Server. However, now my fonts are all fuzzy... Any ideas what I might have broken?22:05
NeldogzI understand that udisksctl power-off does the following:  the effect is that the USB device will be deconfigured followed by disabling the upstream hub port it is connected to.22:05
Mathisrepeating... when using a UMTS USB modem (ZTE MF667), I read about disabling the emulated CD drive... is this permanent or just until the device loses the power?22:05

Bashing-ommnature_: Xscreensaver is is the repo (Version: 5.15-3ubuntu1), what have you done that the old version is still on your system ?22:58
mnature_nothing it's on my siister's pc too22:59
frozenlockI tried switching back to the proprietary drivers and the fonts look great. (But it's killing my wifi... that rabbit hole...)22:59
mnature_I tried reinstalling unbuntu 15.04 byt still there23:00
Bashing-ommnature_: How did you install Xscreensaver ? Maybe you can 'remove' it and install afresh from the repo ?23:00
A124Should I update to latest kernel or not? (LTS version, clean install)23:00
mnature_i didn't , it just appeared23:00
erichfkillall chromium-browser* && killall chromium-browser* works23:01
erichffor some reason I have to execute the command twice23:02

sudormrfhave a throwback here....is there a program (graphical is preferred) for creating an "iso" of a floppy disk for ubuntu?  I know ISO isn't the right format, but that is to illustrate what I am trying to do23:05

frozenlockpragmaticenigma: thanks a lot23:06
frozenlockIt's such a small thing... the font... but really it's giving me a headache23:07
pragmaticenigmafrozenlock, I agree, i'm very sensitive to that sort of thing myself.23:08
Bashing-ommnature_: Is it ? what does the package manager know ? -> dpkg -l xscreensave <- .23:09

A124bekks: Just realized that is Reiser4, not Reiserfs. But will try anyway. Not sure if Reiserfs is not in kernel or I cannot find mkfs for reiser23:13
bekksA124: Do you really want the ancient reiserfs v3?!23:13
bekksGood luck with that one :)23:14
A124It was enabled by default on kernel config.23:14
A124As a module.. so I might find a kerne.. yep.. it is thre.23:15
A124Now I am missing userspace tool to makefs.23:15
mnaturehanks for your help , I figured it out in the terminal , It's gone now23:16
ki7mtI just looked at my supported file system, I don't see Reiser* anything being supported in the generic kernel. not that I want it, was just curious.23:18

ki7mtwhoops, belay my last reiserfs is there: ls /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/fs23:20
Jordan_Uki7mt: How are you checking for supported filesystems?23:20
mindphucki have a slight, mysterious issue, there are 3 or 4 folders i have on my external hard drive that show up in windows explorer, but not in linux, any suggestion?23:22
ki7mtJordan_U, I was looking at /proc/filesystem, which I think is listing only those that are currently in use at the moment.23:22
bubbasauresmindphuck, ctrl-h to show hidden23:23
mindphuckbut they arent hidden, they are just regular folders that contain files,23:23
csmuleHow do I supress errors in upstart jobs so it doesn't abort?23:23
bubbasauresmindphuck, did you check if hidden in ubuntu?23:24
mindphuckyep, first thing i checked23:24
mindphuckso originally i thought i deleted them by accident, and went back to windows to get a data recovery program, then i just took a gander in the folder and low and behold there they were23:24
bubbasauresmindphuck, with any details it will be a dead duck here.23:25
A124bekks: modprobe + package reiserfsprogs, solved!23:26
A124Might try to compile and play with Reiser4 for the fun.23:26
mindphuckwhat about ducks?23:26
A124Reiser4 was heading into phenomenal heights, but thanks to the arrest of the author it .. went astray sadly.23:26
bekksA124: And reiserfs v3 was replaced by reiser4 long before.23:27
A124bekks: That is the point.23:27
