Layldaftykins, it seems it couldn't create the swap space? I have no idea why or what is wrong00:05
daftykinsdid it give an error? is this gparted?00:05
Laylthis is the installer00:06
LaylI've set it to use the swap partition for swap00:06
Layland it says it couldn't create the swap space00:06
LaylI think it's trying to make a new one00:06
daftykinsjust clicked to highlight, hit change, then set swap?00:07
Laylno wait, it's saying it about partition 6, which is the swap one00:07
wheresmypaaantsjonne: Finger crossing was successful, keyboard and mouse are functional.00:07
Laylyea I did that00:07
Laylshould I format the swap partition to be sure00:07
daftykinsfrom the outdated guide page - "Run the installer. When it gets to it's partitioner, change the mount point on the first partition to / DO NOT format it! Do NOT make any partition changes! The installer partitioner does not understand dmraid partitions properly "00:07

mrdebdoes anyone know fix for via openchrome driver corruption in 14.04, where it worked fine before with s3 kn40000:08
daftykinsLayl: nah it doesn't use the same names and it is 5 years old heh00:09
daftykinsseems sane though00:09

daftykinsmrdeb: the nasty VIA unichrome graphics? that hardware is so poor i would either not use it, or try using VESA only00:12
mrdebdaftykins: it works fine in 12.04 and deb 700:12
daftykinsvelho: actually it's quite easy to follow if you're familiar with the chipset00:12
mrdebwhy is it broken now00:12
daftykinsmrdeb: so keep using 12.04? it's good until 201700:12
mrdebok i will have to00:12
Layldaftykins, could it have anything to do with that the two partitions are together in an "extended" partition?00:13

hkrrsxmem11: Hello00:49
mem11I encountered a weird config issue on Ubuntu Gnome. Thought I should share. It could be identified as a bug. Though I couldn't find a webpage reporting it.00:50
mem11It's a fresh 14.04 and has 2 users: 1 admin, 1 normal00:51
Laylwhat's the issue?00:51
hkrrsxmem11: Please elaborate.00:51
mem11I don't know about the defaults, but I think it had autologin=true. I set it to false for my admin (before or after I added the 2nd user, I don't remember which)00:52
Laylit asks you during install00:52
mem11So my expectation is that my admin would require my password for login to X00:52
wafflejockyeah should have asked during install believe when you put in your password00:52
mem11But oh no, the login screen has a progress bar and in 10 seconds I get auto login00:53
mem11So I look into /etc/gdm/custom.conf and see TimedLogin=True :/00:53
mem11Even though I have AutoLogin=False now I'm auto logged in, just after _some time_00:54
LaylI just restarted after ubuntu ran updates and it started into gtub console :/00:54
mem11It's weird00:54
wafflejockmem11, hmm interesting... I actually have the same but never noticed cause I always just logged in instead of waiting00:55
mem11I fixed it manually by setting TimedLogin to False, no problem. But this could be fixed somehow, I think00:55
daftykinsLayl: heading off now, good luck with it00:55
LaylI have no idea what to do from here D:00:55
daftykinsthat makes 2 of us00:55
LaylI'm staring at the grub console00:55
ubottuBoot-Repair is a simple tool to repair frequent boot issues you may encounter in Ubuntu. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair for more info.00:55
daftykinsother than trying that00:55
daftykinseh? i thought it did boot00:56
Laylit did, then I installed updates00:56
Laylthen it asked to restart00:56
mem11wafflejock: yeah, and there's no TimedLogin option in the GUI too00:56
LaylI let it do that, then it went into grub console00:56
daftykinsLayl: boot live again, chroot - try update-grub, dunno00:56
ubottuA chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot00:56
LaylI'll try that00:56
[Saint]perhaps a new kernel was installed, the old one autoremoved, and for $some_reason update-grub wasn't called.00:57
wafflejockmem11, yeah might want to try #ubuntu-gnome or something to see if someone can tell you what's going on or point you to where to file a bug00:57
[Saint]though, it should have been.00:57
mem11wafflejock, ok maybe i'll do that00:58
Laylwhy am I having so many issues aaargh00:58
wafflejockmem11, I imagine it's probably still using launchpad for issues but not sure00:58

LaylI'm trying really hard to be polite here but that it has taken so much time is really pressing my patience01:08
swordsmanzLayl did you try the chroot sergestion put forward on the fourums ?01:08
LaylI did not, I am currently learning what chroot is and how it applies in this situation01:09

veebullThe private key to connect to the machine via SSH must be owned01:10

swordsmanzLayl chroot stands basically for change root, it allows you to apply root privalages from one drive iniroment to another01:10

swordsmanzso try to dismount01:19
Laylhow can I unmount something that I don't know where it's mounted to though01:20
swordsmanzLayl you use df01:20
swordsmanzor you can cat/proc mounts01:22
mem11Is there a way to query whether a package came with the distro or not?01:23
Laylnot seeing this specific volume in the list in df01:23
swordsmanzLayl also it would be pertinent to k now if you are useing softraid or hardraid01:23
LaylI'm using fakeraid01:23
swordsmanzLayl was it set up by the installer ?01:23
Laylyea it was01:23
Laylif by installer you mean the place that assembled the computer01:24
hkrrsxmem11: One way is to check  http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=ubuntu01:24
hkrrsxmem11: Another way is to check http://packages.ubuntu.com01:24
swordsmanzLayl no i mean the ubuntu installer01:24
phixok Unity is acting up again (I click on something but keyboard focus stays in the previous window), when is Unity being planned to be fixed?01:24
hkrrsxOr you can apt-cache search <package_name>01:24
Laylthe ubuntu installer did not set up anything, I had to manually create the partitions in gparted01:24
Layltrying to use umount tells me the volume is not mounted01:25
Laylthis is quite the irritating situation01:25
Laylsince only the livecd is running and both the ubuntu and windows install are bricked, I doubt anything can be keeping the volume busy01:26
mem11hkrrsx, hmm those would show me if the package is _provided_ but not in the main distro image, wouldn't it?01:26
swordsmanzLayl so ubuntu is installed but all you need is a bootloader ?01:27
Laylubuntu is installed, grub is installed as well01:27
hkrrsxmem11: The distrowatch.com one would01:27
Laylbut grub launches into a console rather than a menu01:27
Laylthis happened after first being able to start fine, but then after running updates and restarting it stopped working01:28
swordsmanzLayl do you know where your /boot directory is being stored ?01:28
LaylI don't know what a /boot directory is01:29

[Saint]azizLIGHT: it sits flush with the USB ports in my case.01:40
swordsmanzLayl try doing a grub-install01:40

Laylwhat does that mean01:57
swordsmanzso dismount /dev/whateveryourraidis01:57
Laylcan't find the dismount command01:58
swordsmanzunmount *01:58
Laylah alright01:58
Bashing-omadministrador: Do not know then, what returns -> apt-cache policy unetbootin <- ?01:58
Laylit's apparently not mounted01:59
Laylshould I try to unmount all the partitions as well01:59
swordsmanzLayl output of df at this point01:59
Layldf still shows the same01:59
administradorBashing-om: unetbootin:   Installed: (none)  Candidate: 585-2ubuntu1 Version table: 585-2ubuntu1 0 500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/universe amd64 Packages02:00
Layldoing a quick check, none of the partitions are mounted either02:00
* zegodd loves Ubuntu02:01
swordsmanzlay try mounting that driv eto mnt again02:01
Bashing-omadministrador: Well, you can see it .. try : sudo apt-get update , sudo apt-get upgrade , sudo apt-get install unetbootin <- .02:01
Laylstill already mounted or busy02:01
Laylone thing, previously ubuntu mentioned something about the windows partition being busy and that it might have something to do with fastboot02:02
swordsmanzok im calling retarded02:02
administradorBashing-om: Thats what I did but got that error message. I am installing it from that link you gave me though, thx.02:03
Laylthe windows partition is currently entirely inaccessable though so I do not have any way to boot into windows to solve the issue02:03
swordsmanzLayl there is ether something radically wrong with your raid setup or there is something radically wroing with the way ubuntu is handeling things right now02:04
LaylI'm gonna guess a little of column A a little of column B02:04
swordsmanzLayl my adice, redo the raid setup yourself from the bios utility, make sure everything is as it should be then try again with a fresh install of a decent distro02:05
Laylany way I could access the windows drive to get a single file that would be a pain to re-create?02:05
swordsmanzLayl yes, use a linux life usb that comes ith an ntfs driver preloaded and just pull the files off02:06
Laylgetting an error that the filesystem is readonly on the windows partition02:06
swordsmanzLayl it being read only will still let you read the file to pull it out02:07
Laylyea but the file browser aint having none of it02:07
Layland is just refusing to open it up02:07
LaylI am just gonna wipe it all once I get those files and follow the advice to just go for two flat drives with one with windows and one with ubuntu02:09
swordsmanzLayl use a distro that will set up a good softraid for you02:09
LaylI am just not going to deal with RAID at all anymore02:10
LaylI'll just get an SSD02:10
swordsmanzLayl also are you in raid 0 or raid 1 ?02:10
Laylraid 102:10
swordsmanzso redundent ?02:10
LaylI'm just gonna restart from livecd again to get all the mounting in order again because it's not opening anything aymore02:11
swordsmanzLayl thats best02:11
swordsmanzit should open up the files then, if not  there are other ways to get your data02:11
Laylhonestly my system needed a wipe anyways02:12
LaylI am never letting a hardware retailer set up my raid again02:15
swordsmanzLayl that is a good idea02:16
Laylit says my windows partition is in an unsafe state02:18
swordsmanzLayl force it to mount02:19
Laylhow do I force it to mount?02:20
Laylalready got it with -o ro02:21
Layllooking at my data right now, gonna get a sandwich then get to recovering02:21
Laylso after getting this all sorted out, will it be easier to install windows first then ubuntu or other way around02:23
Laylor can I get 90% performance out of windows with a VM02:23
tewardLayl: what exactly are you running on Windows?02:25
Laylgames mainly02:25
tewardLayl: dualboot - install Windows then Ubuntu02:25
tewarddo custom installation of Windows, manually define the space to use, etc.02:25
tewardLayl: games inside a VM are... varying in results02:25
Anosssi like chicken02:26
Laylteward, will it vastly simplify the setup if I have one physical drive per OS?02:26
tewardLayl: i can't comment to that, unfortunately.02:27
tewardI try and keep a gaming-dedicated computer around, and not mess with that02:27

tj83zerowaitstate, any tips before I give this a shot?03:18
zerowaitstatetj83: well, my advice is always do a backup before making major changes to a system, but we're kind of past that point03:18

enavanyone aware of the eclipse hangs FTP support after some idel time?03:19
zerowaitstatetj83: i would make note of your fstab beforehand03:20
pavlostj83, there is a /var/backups dir ... you may find group.bak there03:20
zerowaitstatetj83: because you'll have to remount the root filesystem once you're in03:20
zerowaitstatepavlos: I actually didn't know that was there03:21
tj83pavlos, it is there. but I dont have permission to open it :( yet anyways03:21
Laylwhat's UDMA anyways, saw a thread that says turning it off fixes my problem03:21
tj83i will look at it once I am there pavlos ty03:21
pavlostj83, use sudo03:21
tj83zerowaitstate, gotcha. thanks.03:21
tj83pavlos, sudo is broke03:21
zerowaitstatetj83: you should be able to do ls at least03:22
zerowaitstatetj83: what's the date on the file03:22
tj83yes I see its there in /var/backup apr 5th03:22
pavlostj83, the perm for the /var/backups/group.bak are 600, only root can see it03:22
phixso any ideas?03:23
zerowaitstatepavlos: are those created by dpkg?03:23
tj83ok. I'm going over to recovery mode to see what I can do. thanks for the leads. be back soon to report.03:23
pavloszerowaitstate, not sure which process ... I think every time there is a change is groups, it makes a backup03:24

Laylthere's nothing on the ubuntu one I will miss03:28

pavlospoz, easy with the language ...03:28
Laylit is literally a clean install of ubuntu gnome with updates installed03:28
pozoh i see03:29
pozwhat type of file system?03:29
Laylit booted once, then thrashed grub with the updates03:29
pozyour ubuntu drive has nothing else on it?03:29
Laylafter grub was fixed, it now doesn't boot anymore03:29
Laylthe ubuntu partition has nothing else on it but the drive has my windows partition on it03:30
pozI did not mean to sware before, but the line "bad magic number in the super block" is not my most feared line of all time.03:31
Laylit doesn't say anything about a super block03:31
pozoh okay, you need to be careful then. you might end up toasting your entire drive, not just the partition03:31
Laylwell I don't know what to even do from here03:32
pozdo you have any other drives with equal or more space then your current drive?03:32
LaylI do not03:32
Laylthis drive is 2Tb03:32
zerowaitstatepavlos: ah, apparently debian has a script under /etc/cron.daily/passwd that does daily backups of the passwd file if they differ from the previous day03:33
Laylif I had I would have backed up the windows partition entirely, wiped the drive, undone the RAID setup and made each drive its own OS install03:33
pozare you in your windows drive right now?03:33
zerowaitstatepavlos: and group, etc03:33
LaylI'm right now in the GRUB menu03:33

pozoh okay, well can you boot into windows with out any issues?03:34
Laylexcept that fastboot has stopped working03:34
Laylbut turning that off fixes any issues that causes03:34
CerinCan someone give me a sanity check? I just downloaded the ISO for Ubuntu 14.04, installed it onto a USB thumbdrive, booted a server from it and started the install...and then it stopped and asked me to insert the CD...which of course I don't have because I'm installing from USB. Am I going crazy? Why does Ubuntu 14.04 *require* a CD-ROM drive?03:34
pavloszerowaitstate, great ... I remember that passwd and groups are backed up, did not remember the cron ... thx03:34
pozI think the first thing you want to identify is if it is hardware or software. however I learnt that it was hardware, far to late in the game to back up my drive. so that is a good thing to do first03:34
=== rika is now known as crika
Laylpoz, how do I identify this03:35
MichaelTiebeslCerin:did you do a md5sum check?03:35
Laylmy raid status screen shows there's nothing wrong with the array03:35
=== crika is now known as rika
Layldarn it I just wanted to dual boot ubuntu, why does this have to be so haaaard03:37
tj83pavlos, zerowaitstate  ok got sudo back. whew! what is the standard set of secondary groups for admin users? and on a note on the mount i did have to mount -o rw,remount / to get write access. but worked03:38
pozLayl, do you still have your ubuntu stick? boot from it and mount your hard drive. then google some things about how to check ext4 file systems... I have to go becuase of work tomorrow or else I would stick around to try and help you. If it is seagate brand name, they have some windows tools called seagate tools that might help you03:38
CerinMichaelTiebesl: A corrupted ISO would require installation from CD?!03:38
LaylI'm just gonna sleep, I've lost way too much sleep because of this and I need to get at least some03:39
zerowaitstatetj83: adm cdrom sudo plugdev lpadmin dip03:39
zerowaitstateactually i don't know what dip is03:39
pozI think I had issues with magic numbers when I was messing with usb sticks... I think I just reformatted and tryed again. if you have ntohing to lose you could reformat on your ubuntu part03:39
zerowaitstatetj83: adm is the group that log files are often saved under, so you don't have to sudo to read logs03:40
zerowaitstatetj83: other stuff is self explanatory03:40
zerowaitstatetj83: did you check out the backup in /var/backups?03:40
zerowaitstatetj83: while you were gone i googled and apparently ubuntu saves a copy of your groups/passwd/shadow file each day if the backup copy differs from the live copy03:41
CerinWhere do I even find the md5 for the current ISOs? Canonical doesn't list them on their site anywhere...03:41
zerowaitstatetj83: it's in /etc/cron.daily/passwd; the code that is03:41
FlannelCerin: is this the server ISO?03:41
CerinFlannel: yes03:42
pavlosCerin, there should be a md5sum.txt03:42
Bashing-omtj83: Found: dip (Dialup IP) is a smart program that is able to set the speed of the serial device, .03:42
FlannelCerin: So, it's looking for the repository of files on the CD to install from.  It's looking for the CDrom drive, which obviously you have none.  You should be able to point it to the repository on the USB stick (but I don't know the details, I'd have to muck around with it).  Or mount the USB as a CD or something too might work.03:43
FlannelCerin: Another (probably easier) alternative is to get the mini.iso, which is the alternate installer (server installer) except it doesn't contain any packages (and instead tries to get them from the internet, which bypasses this problem).  You'll have to have an internet connection during the install, however.03:44
zerowaitstatetj83: oh, I left out sambashare03:44
tj83zerowaitstate, Bashing-om cool thanks got em all03:45
zerowaitstatetj83: as a bit of advice, I don't really use usermod much; I use adduser to add a user to a group03:46
Cerinyes, the checksum is fine, the installer really does need a CD, wow03:46
tj83I havent used ubuntu for a long time. was till late a fedora user. where i used root or su as needed, I just messed up. thanks for the help03:47
zerowaitstatetj83: np dude. have a good one03:47
FlannelCerin: No, it doesn't.03:47
CerinFlannel: yes, it does, you just said so03:47
FlannelWell, the installer expects a repository on a CD, you should be able to reconfigure it to use the repository on the USB.  I said that, not that it requires a CD.03:48
CerinYou're arguing semantics. The point is the installer won't install unless there's a CD...thus it requires a CD.03:49
CerinThat's a bug IMHO.03:49
FlannelCerin: No.  That's not what I said.  You SHOULD be able to make it work right now.  I just don't have specifics for you on how to do that (and no easy way to try for myself at the moment).  Which is different than REQUIRING a CD.03:49
CerinIf the LiveUSB has enough packages to install but can't because the installer is hard-coded to read from a CD drive...then...jeez, that's really sloppy coding.03:49
tj83while I am here, can anyone suggest a good application for video capture from USB device.03:50
CerinFlannel: Yes, I know, I've installed Ubuntu from only-USB before for 12.04. I don't know why they've broken it for 14.04.03:51
CerinThis is really frustrating.03:51
CerinIt's 2015 and the bleeding-edge version of Ubuntu requires a CD-ROM drive.03:51
FlannelCerin: It's the exact same installer, so it shouldn't have broken.  Was your 12.04 install a command line install?03:51
CerinWho even uses CDs anymore?03:51
tj83Cerin, I installed 14.04 from SD card, technically USB.03:51
CerinFlannel: It worked with plain USB for both desktop and server installs. I think it was through the GUI.03:52
FlannelCerin: Right, that installs using an entirely different method (ubiquity, not debian-installer).03:52
CerinFlannel: Is there a command installer in that ISO, or do I need a different ISO? I didn't see a non-GUI option when I booted?03:53
zerowaitstatetj83: you should be able to use vlc to do it, but you probably want an actualy video editing app03:55
FlannelCerin: No, the desktop CD (liveCD) won't install a server sysstem, only the desktop system, and it's only through the graphical installer.03:55
zerowaitstatetj83: maybe openshot?03:55
CerinFlannel: I'm using the server ISO.03:55
FlannelCerin: The mini ISO should work fine, with downloading packages from the internet, or this ISO should work fine, if we can figure out what you need to do to make it happier.03:56
tj83zerowaitstate, well, I am using a netbook so I need something with as little over-head as possible. to just dump raw to disk.03:56
CerinFlannel: Where's the mini ISO?03:57
tj83VLC has problem with lag and audio/video sync issues I believe due to resource limitations. ffmpeg hmm... i havent looked into the ability to do it.03:57
FlannelCerin: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD03:57
zerowaitstatetj83: not really my area of expertism03:57
zerowaitstateg'night all04:05
CerinFlannel: weird, Ubuntu startup disk creator won't accept the mini.iso04:05
FlannelCerin: Right, the startup disk creator only works on the desktop ISOs (using ubiquity).  The alternate/server/mini ISOs work completely differently, and I'm pretty sure startup disk creator doesn't know what to do with them.  The miniISO page has two links on how to run it with a USB stick.  I think it's just using dd nowadays.04:07

FlannelPHPLearner: I'm not familiar with APC, so you may need to configure it.  However I do know that it's not currently enabled in apache.  You'll need to do that with `sudo a2enmod apcu` and then restart apache to get it to take.  Also, according to the Readme.Debian file, if you copy /usr/share/doc/php5-apcu/apc.php to some place on your webserver, you should be able to view it and get some APC-related information (which I guess would show you it's wor05:04

sudomarizei'm getting a lot of artifacts on my screen (not sure if this is the right term actually, basically there are faint impressions from other windows on my screen), anyone know what could be causing this?10:02
sudomarizeit's on my thinkpad x240, thought it might be a distro issue, but i changed from 14.04 to elementaryos (ubuntu-based) and the problem still persists.10:02
sudomarizeif anyone has any idea of what could be causing this issue please let me know10:03
OerHekssudomarize, did you install any prop driver?10:03
trijntjesudomarize: bad cable can give shadows10:03
sudomarizeOerHeks: what's a prop driver?10:03
sudomarizetrijntje: ah so it's a problem with the machine?10:04
sudomarizeOerHeks: er nope haven't done that10:04
sudomarizedidn't realize there were any10:04
OerHekstype driver is dash, or whatever elementary uses ..10:05
trijntjesudomarize: ah, on a laptop, that makes it hard to check. Can you see if you get the same issue in the bios? Faint shadows etc? If so i'd say its the connection between the screen and the video card10:05
sudomarizetrijntje: they appear when i turn on the laptop and i need to enter my passphrase to decrypt my /home folder (not sure if this is bios)10:06
huighello, i have a pc with two users, lets say user1 and user2. when i connect an usb storage device to the pc, how it is decided where to mount it?how could i achieve to have read access from both user1 and user210:07
trijntjeno, the bios is before that, you should probably check your laptop manual to see how you can get there, its different for every pc10:07
OerHekshuig, normally it mounts under /media/10:07
OerHekshuig, read access, what type of partition is on that usb?10:08
huigOerHeks: yeah, but with user1 i can access it but without user2 i can't10:08
sudomarizetrijntje: when i was running on 14.04, i don't recall seeing the shadows in BIOS then, only after exiting BIOS10:08
EriC^^huig: you can mount it manually somewhere else10:09

gryzorhi. How can I upgrade a 12.10 installation? do-release-upgrade fails stating my ubuntu installation is unsupported, which is the reason why I'm trying to upgrade...10:13
huigOerHeks: i tried doing it locally. i create a user and then opened another tty to login with that user. and i didn't have access with that user to /media10:13
OerHeksgryzor, that would be a long long way > 12.10 - 13.04 - 13.10 -  14.04 lts  ...10:14
ubottuEnd-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades10:14

EriC^^huig: /media/<user> can only be accessed by <user>10:14
OerHeksgryzor, see the eolupgrades url, howto all old-releases in your sourceslist10:14
EriC^^huig: you'd have to add another user to as an ACL10:14
huigEriC^^: but why is that usb mounted in /media/user1 and it isn't mounted at /media/user2?10:15
EriC^^huig: cause gvfs automounts it under the user that's logged on10:15
huigEriC^^: and what if the usb is connected before an user loggs?10:16
EriC^^it won't automount10:16
EriC^^if it's in /etc/fstab with auto as an option it would automount when you boot the pc10:17
huigEriC^^: so if the user connects the usb before it loggs, could i ssh with user2 and mount it to /media/user2?10:17

gerry_anybofy knows something about this problem?10:21
huigEriC^^: but it is possible to mount it to my user without being root?10:21
EriC^^yes, using udisksctl10:21
huigEriC^^: so althought it will mount to /media/usr1, i could access /dev/sdxY and mount it to wherever i want withouth being root?that would be just great!!10:22
=== havingFun is now known as xrosnight

LaylCould I get some help? My ubuntu partition fails to boot12:39
Laylit gives me "invalid magic number, you need to load the kernel first"12:39
LaylI've already run boot-repair, it got me from not showing anything in grub at all to this12:39
newbnewbok thanks....I just installed Ubuntu 14.04 and am trying to find a way to show all apps? I am using Unity...and it only show 5 or 6 apps....some like firefox are only on the dock...I googled but didn't see a working solution12:40
newbnewbim sorry for the ignorance but the unity icon top left...cant remember its name...when I click it I only see a few apps....show more doesn't show all12:40
OerHeksnewbnewb, open dash, and select the white "A" icon on the bottom12:40
badbodhlayl did you select one of the partitions to write mbr? during install that is...12:41
newbnewbah the software center?12:41
Laylbadbodh: I did, it wrote to the correct partition for my setup12:41
Laylwhich was /dev/mapper/somethingsomething_Volume0112:41
newbnewbis there a way to see them all in one click? when i open the dash it defaults to "applications"....but doesnt show all12:41
OerHeksnewbnewb, then see right top corner 'filter results' and click on that12:42
bijoo_Hi DPKG says oracle-java7 uninstalled ; but in fact it's installed manually in the right location; how can I make DPKG "aware" of that so it shows it's installed?12:42
badbodhlayl that isn't how it shows on the installer. There you choose sda,sdb etc for mbr12:42
badbodhis it a fresh install or old?12:42
newbnewbOerHeks I see that and Applications is selected in the filter12:42
Laylbadbodh, yea it doesn't for me because I've got a weird fakeraid setup12:42
Laylit's a fresh install on an next to an existing windows install12:42
newbnewbbut for some reason not all show12:43
OerHeks!java | bijoo_ read this page howto select your java version12:43
ubottubijoo_ read this page howto select your java version: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin. If that is not sufficient you will need a "Java Development Kit" (JDK) aka "Software  Development Kit" (SDK).  Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java about how to install one of three current implementations.12:43
Laylinstalling grub to /dev/sda will not boot into grub at all, installing to that one in mapper will boot to grub12:43
newbnewbHelp, thunderbird, videos, texteditor,calculator and rhythmbox are all that show....firefox and libreoffice are in the dock12:44
badbodhlayl oh, dunno much about fakeraid sorry12:44
LaylI can currently still choose and boot into windows, just the ubuntu install doesn't work12:44
LaylI do not think it is a problem with fakeraid anymore12:44
badbodhif your windows bootloader shows, it means grub wasn't installed correctly12:44
Laylno, windows shows in the grub menu12:44
Laylit doesn't immediately go to windows12:44
badbodhoh kk12:45
Laylas well, I've previously been able, after install, to boot into ubuntu12:45
Laylbut after running updates and restarting, it refused to boot anymore12:45
Laylit showed me a grub bash shell instead12:45
pikaciuLayl try installing grub from windows12:45
Laylso after running boot repair from a livecd, I'm now in this situation, where windows and ubuntu show in grub12:45
Laylbut ubuntu doesn't start12:45
sudomarizewhat does "sudo apt-get install -y" do?12:45
newbnewbwhen I open the dash it defaults with the Home icon highlighted at bottom and Applications the only category....but not all apps show despite selecting for it in the filter12:45
sudomarizethe "-y" part specifically12:46
ikoniasudomarize: nothing as you have not specified a package12:46
Laylpikaciu, I think grub is installed fine, it's starting up without issues12:46
ikonia -y is auto respond with "yes"12:46
sudomarizeikonia: thanks12:46
OerHekssudomarize, nothing without the name of a package ( -y will answer y on all questions)12:46

cryptic0I added a new path to a binary in /etc/environment, then logged out and back in, but the changes aren't taking effect.12:47
cryptic0Also tried source /etc/environment in vain12:47
badbodhlayl yeah grub is fine, but it cannot detect where your ubuntu root partition is12:47
MonkeyDustnewbnewb  if you go private and no solution is found, then you would have to start over, explaining everything12:47
bijoo_OerHeks: already ran  update-alternatives; thanks for suggestion, though issue's still there: how to make 'dpkg' aware of manually installed package12:47
Laylbadbodh, should I run an update-grub2 or won't that do much in this case?12:47
newbnewbok monkeydust....just hard to keep up...I am old and not good at this stuff12:48
badbodhLayl yeah do that see what error ,if any, it throws up12:48
pikaciuLayl recovery mode from grub ?12:48
badbodhalso try read this link if you haven't12:48
bijoo_I think I found the answer to question : http://askubuntu.com/questions/71510/how-do-i-create-a-ppa/493577#49357712:48
Laylbadbodh, what should I pass to update-grub2 to make it aware of where grub is installed to I don't think it's gonna grab it by default (had problems before)12:49
Laylpikaciu, recovery mode?12:49
pikaciuLayl you dont't have Advanced Options in grub ?12:50
Layloh right it's in there, I'll try that in a bit after running update-grub212:50
untakenI have a multi monitor setup, how can I invoke a keyboard shortcut to move to the left/right monitor? ie move the focus on my cursor12:50
badbodhpikaciu it won't matter, magic number problem means grub can't see ubuntu's root partition12:50
badbodhwon't boot anyway12:50
Laylif I select a different kernel version in that list it will give something other than invalid magic number btw12:51
badbodhLayl boot into usb/dvd and 'sudo grub-install /dev/-wherever you choose-'12:51
pikaciuLayl did you encrypt ?12:51
OerHeksbijoo_, i think you must read " How do I install Oracle JRE 7?" on that java page12:51
LaylI did not encrypt12:52
philinuxFirefox 37.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.10 maxing out cpu, anyone else getting this?12:52
Laylbadbodh, grub has already been reinstalled, this is the result of after an install of grub12:52
badbodhLayl: first run 'lsblk' or 'sudo blkid' in terminal to know how your hard drives are identified12:52
Laylboot repair did the reinstall12:52
badbodhbut maybe not in the right location12:52
Laylwhen it gave me the commands to copypaste it was in the right location and if it wasn't installed it wouldn't even show up on boot right?12:53
LaylI'm just wondering now what went wrong that an ubuntu update could wreck itself so badly12:54
badbodhLayl hmm, that's true. Just run update-grub from live usb then12:54
Laylif I had a backup drive large enough I would just dump the entire windows partition to it and revert my raid to 2 separate drives, one for each OS12:55
Laylbadbodh, update-grub2 shows "failed to get canonical path of /cow"12:56
badbodheh where did the /cow come from?12:57
Laylfrom the process of trying to get anything to show up in grub at all yesterday, I can already guess this will be a repeating issue12:57
pikaciufrom a farm12:57
LaylI  just ran "sudo update-grub2"12:57
Laylnot sure if I should have passed it anything12:57
Laylor chrooted into anything12:57
badbodhnormally ubuntu never needed to be chrooted, even the help page syas just update-grub12:59
badbodhchroot then12:59
Laylbadbodh: chroot the volume or the ubuntu partition?12:59
badbodhif you can't mount your root, that's a good news12:59
badbodhubuntu's root partition12:59
badbodhfirst mount it in /mnt13:00

bijoo_OerHeks: thanks for your help and suggestion here.13:03
badbodhLayl what? how can it not find a device? you just mounted it...and chrooted to it13:03
Laylbadbodh, and there's nothing in /dev/mapper/ here13:03

Laylonly something called "control"13:04
pikaciuLayl if  you get realllllly despaired you can try , from win, Grub2Win.  once it helped me13:04
Laylbut it's not a grub problem is it?13:04
newbnewbhelp with the dash please? I am trying to make it so I can see all apps with one click....but it only shows 6 of them in the dash no matter how I filter13:04
badbodhlooks like your raid thingy is messing up13:04
Laylif this needs a reinstall of ubuntu I can do that13:04
badbodhbut try his method anyway13:04
Layluggh it will just take so much extra time13:04
badbodhwell you said it was a frsh install13:05
badbodhre-install, and this time observe what is getting updated13:06
Laylit's a lot of things though13:06
badbodhdid you use synaptic to upgrade/13:06
Laylit was updating for like 10 minutes13:06
LaylI just got a window pop up that said it was going to update13:06
badbodhoh, that is supposed to be the safe way13:06
liu_i am chinese13:06
Laylafter that update it just didn't boot anymore13:07
Laylagain, if I in the advanced menu in grub select an older kernel version to boot to, it doesn't show "invalid magic number" but something else13:07
badbodhwhat does it show?13:07
Laylkinda feels like it messed up a kernel update big time13:07
Laylgive me a moment to restart my PC and i'll take a look13:07
Laylbadbodh: "device-mapper; device lookup failed"13:09
badbodhcheck your bios, your raided drives are messing up13:10
Laylwhat should  I be checking for13:10
Laylthe raid status screen shows everything's alright13:11
badbodhdon't know, ubutu does have a nasty habit of changing hard disk settings in bios13:11
badbodhcheck those13:11
Laylwouldn't that also affect windows though13:11
Laylbecause windows still boots fine13:11
OerHekshuh ? " changing hard disk settings in bios" ?13:12
ofotowhen i right click i can only open file with archive manager , xarchiver , gdebi. ubuntu software center doesnt show itself even in full list of programs ,any ideas what to do ? i thought purge and reinstall but asking first seems better13:12
badbodhwindows 7 should, if it doesn't you can always change it back13:12

rainbowtuxHi all, small OT question: is there a good tutorial to build a system booting from squashfs?13:12
Laylas well I wouldn't know what to look for as I don't generally look into the bios13:13
hateballofoto: gdebi is used to install debs in the gui13:13
hateballofoto: if you are not installing them from a repository (software center)13:13
badbodhlayl if you are using win7, it will alwys work no matter how badly you mess up the bios :D13:13
OerHeksofoto, gdebi, or comandline sudo dpkg -i <package>.deb13:13
badbodhanyways forget about that, re-install buntu13:14
DerRaidenI've problem on my acer laptop, if i shutdown it doesn't turn off and the reboot doesn't go too, i tested with ubuntu gnome 14.10 and ubuntu-mate 15.04 does anyone know what the problem could be?13:14
Laylbadbodh, oh wait, I just found a stackoverflow ubuntu question about mounting the device13:14
Laylit says I need to manually mount /dev and such13:15
badbodhoh, do share the link13:15
ofotoi can use gdebi but i cant use software center for deb files anymore13:15

Laylbadbodh, http://askubuntu.com/questions/82759/error-you-need-to-load-the-kernel-first-in-grub13:15
badbodhyou mounted the device before doing a chroot right?13:15
LaylI did not13:16
EriC^^Layl: are you reinstalling grub?13:16
LaylI mounted the partition13:16
Laylnot the dev thing13:16
LaylEriC^^, I don't even know13:16
EriC^^what's the problem?13:16
Layl"invalid magic number" when booting into ubuntu13:16
Laylwindows still boots fine13:16
Laylwell, except that fastboot is broken now in windows13:17
OerHeksofoto, if you double click the deb, softwarecenter will open, maybe it takes a minut to read the package, be patient13:17
dorelyohow do I make oneko cat run at starup? :D13:17
EriC^^Layl: did you try an older kernel?13:17
LaylEriC^^, I did try to select an older kernel in grub, it doesn't boot either though it seems to get further13:17
EriC^^what does it say?13:18
Layl"device-mapper; device lookup failed"13:18
Laylabridged version of the error13:18
Laylit's looking in /dev/sda2 as well it seems13:18
badbodhlayl you mount the partition before doing chroot, then the terminal will work as if you were in your original ubuntu root folder13:18
Laylwhich isn't correct since my raid setup's stuff is in /dev/mapper/13:18
ofotowhen i double click the deb file it open it with file archiver , like zip files , if i load software center and try to install from main menu , file->install is gray/unclickable13:19
badbodhlayl that's why update-grub didn't work13:19
Laylbadbodh, I did that13:19
OerHeksofoto, care to name us the deb / url ?13:19
EriC^^Layl: type sudo parted -l and pastebin it13:19
ofotoall deb files ,not just 113:19
LaylEriC^^, just a moment while I re-start the livecd again13:20
OerHeksofoto, 'all' is such a wide spread, so you don't want to say wich from where?13:20
ofotoget-dep repository13:21
LaylEriC^^, meanwhile some more information, after the update grub just entirely only showed a bash shell, only when I rain boot-repair it showed ubuntu and windows again in a list13:21
ofotosame for any .deb file i have ever downloaded , double click open archive manager13:21
OerHeksofoto, what is the error when you use comandline "sudo dpkg -i <package>.deb"13:22
ofotoi dont get any errors with dpkg13:22
newbnewbcan someone please help me in private? I am having a few probelms and cant get any answers13:23
OerHeksofoto, solved then.13:23
ofotojust the gui ubuntu software-center is not associated with deb files any more13:23
Layl-livedvdEriC^^: http://paste.ubuntu.com/10815776/13:24
EriC^^ofoto: right click > properties > open with, select software center and set as default13:24
OerHeksi think you want things too fast, softwarecenter is slow during reading a .deb you downloaded yourself13:24
OerHeksfirst you get the normal softwarecenter screen, and it kan take up minutes to read a deb, depending on the size13:25

newbnewbi know I am not good at this stuff and am sorry if its frustrating13:51
bazhangnewbnewb, what version of ubuntu are you on13:51
Layl-UbuntuEriC^^, here's the entire log http://paste.ubuntu.com/10815944/13:51
Sagarbazhang ok13:51
bazhangnewbnewb, is this ubuntu, or ubuntu-based, like MINT13:51
newbnewbinstalled today13:51
newbnewbi tried many commands from google for this problem...nothing worked13:52
bazhangnewbnewb, full ubuntu, or lubuntu, kubuntu, xubuntu13:52
bazhangnewbnewb, whats the graphics card for that, hold old is the machine13:52
newbnewbIntel 945gm x86/mmx/sse2...not sure how old....prob from 2007 or so?13:53
bazhangnewbnewb, the specs on that system mean yes, the full ubuntu is going to be very slow13:54
newbnewbbazhang would you please PM me? Its really hard for me to keep up....too much info passing constatnly13:54
Layl-Ubuntuuh oh eric timed out13:55
bazhangnewbnewb, thus the problem with different things loading, like the software center13:55
bazhangnewbnewb, try the package lubuntu-desktop , install , then logout and log in again13:55
newbnewbi dont know how....according to the specs this should work13:56
newbnewbi just need someone to guide me13:56
newbnewbnot give me vague info13:56
newbnewbi need PM but for some reason nobody will do this13:56
bazhangnewbnewb, I just told you the exact package to install, there is nothing even remotely vague about that13:56
newbnewband I dont know HOW to isntall a package13:56
newbnewbas the software center wont load13:57
newbnewbi am VERY new to this....people are too advanced with their instructions13:57
bazhangnewbnewb, then I will tell you exactly the command you need to put13:57
bazhangnewbnewb, you can simply copy what you see here into a term and it will be installed'13:57
newbnewbI dont want to install lubuntu....ubuntu should work13:57
newbnewbaccording to the specs13:58
newbnewband otehrs have this problem according to google13:58
newbnewbits not my laptops age13:58
bazhangnewbnewb, that is going to be a very slow experience with that graphics card and that amount of ram on a nearly ten year old laptop13:58
newbnewbits not slow....its not loading at all....and google and ask ubuntu says other have this issue13:59
newbnewbbut the solutions there dont fix it13:59
newbnewbother parts of the OS work....just the software center is broken13:59
bazhangnewbnewb, this is troubleshooting basics, we need you to try some things, give some info to proceed13:59
newbnewbwhen I type in to reinstall it it says packages not available etc13:59

yaclmHello! If bekks is here: Here is the top output (http://paste.debian.net/166536/) you asked for yesterdas (Laggin input/mouse/everything after startup for up to 1 minuta, could not figure out what causes that much load. htop shows 50% kernel load but no explicit service)14:04
Layl-Ubuntuso uh, can someone take over from Eric^^ with helping me? He seems to have been disconnected14:05
newbnewbok starting simple can I enlarge the irc typing box? everything it too mall14:05
ofotoi fixed my problem with .deb , it seemed that because im running kwin oner xfce i had to go to kde? systemsettings and change/add the association there and relogin14:05
newbnewband I dont know the commans here14:05
bazhangnewbnewb, what irc client is that14:05
newbnewbfreenode in webbriwser14:05
Layl-Ubuntunewbnewb, if you are using webirc (irc in a web browser) you can control-scroll to zoom14:05
Layl-Ubuntuso it seems ubuntu perhaps has messed up a kernel update? I'm not sure what's going on here14:07
alkisgLayl-Ubuntu: I just came, what's the issue?14:07
alkisgA chroot kernel upgrade failed?14:07
newbnewbi just cant follow here14:07
Layl-Ubuntualkisg, it's a long story in a painful 8 hours (not including sleep break) install of dual boot ubuntu14:07
kaatuwhen i try to install ntop from ubuntu software center it gets stuck , can some one help to restart the ubuntu software center14:07
ofotonewbnewb did u have internet updates on during the installation progress ?14:07
newbnewbit moves too fast and things are gone before I can cut and psate ans answer...and I cant scroll easy14:07
newbnewbits just all too hard...14:08
Layl-Ubuntucurrently I'm booted into ubuntu with gnome on an older version of the kernel14:08
newbnewbthanks anyway14:08
Layl-Ubuntuin grub, picking the newer version (or the default non-advanced option) gives me "invalid magic number"14:08
alkisgLayl-Ubuntu: so basically you have abroken dual-boot and you want to fix it?14:08
Layl-Ubuntuyea, but, this is a pretty much clean install14:08
kaatuwhen i try to install ntop from ubuntu software center it gets stuck , can some one help to restart the ubuntu software center14:08
Layl-Ubuntuubuntu first time did boot14:08
Layl-Ubuntubut after it updated it did not anymore14:08
kaatuwhen i try to install ntop from ubuntu software center it gets stuck , can some one help to restart the ubuntu software center kindly some one help14:08
Layl-Ubuntunow it boots again but only in the old kernel version14:09
Layl-Ubuntuand it doesn't start dgm by default14:09
alkisgLayl-Ubuntu: I can look with vnc if you want (I'm a sysadmin, it'll just take too long via irc..) - sudo apt-get install x11vnc; x11vnc -connect srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr14:09
Layl-Ubuntualkisg: as well, after the ubuntu update, it didn't show anything in grub anymore, I had to run the boot-repair tool to get anything back14:09
yaclmHello! My laptop lags after startup and there is a huge delay for mouse and keyboard inputs. htop shows 50% cpu load (kernel) but doesn't show which command causes this huge load. any hints, keywords, solutions? (top output: http://paste.debian.net/166536/)14:10
alkisgI've seen boot-repair mess up things numerous times...14:10
kaatuwhen i try to install ntop from ubuntu software center it gets stuck , can some one help to restart the ubuntu software center kindly some one help14:10
Laylalkisg: I'm still here from my laptop14:11
Laylalkisg, keep in mind, this is a fakeraid setup14:11
alkisgLayl: ah, dual boot with windows, not with another ubuntu, right?14:11
Laylalkisg, /dev/something isn't the hard drive, it's /dev/mapper/something_Volume0114:11
Laylalkisg, it's dual boot with windows yea14:11
Laylalkisg, as well, grub repeatively has shown me someting with i386 dispite this being a x86_64 install14:12
Laylalkisg, there /dev/sda won't work, the initial install was with that it just booted to windows14:13
alkisgLayl: you're not using efi, are you?14:13
Laylalkisg, as far as I know my motherboard doesn't support efi14:13
LaylI recall when I did some kernel programming that I checked that as an option and it wasn't available14:13
Laylalkisg, keep in mind this is booted from my install, not from a livecd14:14
Laylalkisg: p1 and p2 are windows, p3 is ubuntu p4 is swap14:14
alkisgLayl: wait, you said you were having boot issues, and it wasn't booting into X, but now I'm seeing it booted in X?14:16
Laylalkisg, it doesn't boot with the default option in grub, but it does with the older kernel version14:16
Laylhowever it does show errors on booting14:16
Layland it won't start gdm by default14:16
alkisgLayl, I'm not seeing any errors that way, you'd have to reboot with a live cd, so that I can install kvm there, and then boot the disk in a VM to see the boot process...14:22
alkisg...I'm not sure if it's worth it for a new installation though14:22
Laylalkisg, I'll reboot into the live CD, would just re-installing be faster?14:23
LaylI'm afraid that it will just give the same problem again though14:23
alkisgLayl, I guess so, and if you see that it's a kernel regression, you'd just report it to launchpad..14:23
alkisgYou can also test without RAID14:23
Laylalkisg, alright gonna reboot into liveCD now14:23
Laylalkisg, if I could disable my raid and not loose all my data on my windows machine that would be very nice14:24
Laylbecause that one isn't a clean install14:24
alkisgLayl: it's a software raid, which means that you can use the ubuntu partitions without a raid there14:24
alkisgI.e. have raid in windows, no raid in ubuntu14:24
Laylalkisg, it's not software raid though, it's fakeraid14:24
DerRaidenI've problem on my acer laptop, if i shutdown it doesn't turn off and the reboot doesn't go too, i tested with ubuntu gnome 14.10 and ubuntu-mate 15.04 does anyone know what the problem could be? i'd tried acpi=off noapic and so on14:25
alkisgLayl, doesn't gparted see the partitions normally and allow you to format them individually?14:25
Laylalkisg, nope it shows it as one big drive14:25
r_riosI just installed chromium in Ubuntu 14.10 and it's crashing when I browse GMail and G+. Anyone else experiencing the same problem?14:26
alkisgwhen you run gparted /dev/sda it shows the dev/mapper instead?14:26
Layloh, I just run the gui for gparted14:26
alkisgLayl: btw, you might want to prefer 14.04 instead of 14.10, because it's LTS14:26
Laylalkisg, I don't know, I tend to run a lot of very up to date stuff to get development tools working14:26
alkisgAnd it might happen that you don't get the regression there14:26
alkisgMore people maintain PPAs for LTS releases than for non-LTS ones14:27
TinoDidriksenWhere do I best report an X crash bug that's happening on 14.04 LTS with lts-utopic xorg and kernel installed? Somewhere on Launchpad or directly to Freedesktop?14:27
alkisgLayl: in any case, 15.04 would be better than 14.10, no?14:27
Laylalkisg, 15.04? I thought LTS was 14.0414:28
alkisgLayl: yes, I suggest 14.04 first, 15.04 second, 14.10 third14:28
Laylmight want to go for 15.04 then, is there a gnome installer for that?14:28
alkisgLike, ubuntu-gnome? Or just Unity?14:29
alkisgI believe so, google a bit14:29
Laylalkisg, I'm seeing an iso though it's marked "beta 1"14:30
alkisgIt's 10 days before release, get the last daily build one14:30
alkisgLayl:  http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-gnome/daily-live/current/14:31
Laylalkisg, yep just found that as well14:31
Laylalright the livecd is started14:31
Laylgive me a moment to start up irc and terminal again14:31
designbybeck_What does get stand for in apt-get ? I can't seem to find anything on that14:31
=== compdoc_ is now known as compdoc
k1ldesignbybeck_: its a program name. like" what does "beck" stand for in your nickname" :)14:32
Layl-Ubuntualright, got it all running here14:33
designbybeck_ha...figured as much k1l14:33
ioriaapt is advanced package tool  , get could mean 'activate'14:33
Layl-Ubuntualkisg, could you give me the line again to remote in?14:34
designbybeck_yeah ioria I knew what apt stood for, but I couldn't find anything on "get"14:34
alkisgLayl-Ubuntu: aren't you going to do the clean install?14:34
Layl-Ubuntuwell I could do that as well14:34
k1lapt, apt-get and apt-cache are frontends for the libraries used14:34
Layl-Ubuntuit's probably gonna trash all over the grub entry for windows again though14:34
alkisgupdate-manager => options => enable universe; apt-get update; apt-get install x11vnc; x11vnc -connect srv1-dide.ioa.sch.gr14:34
Layl-Ubuntualkisg, huh that line is opening up a window asking me to do updates14:36
alkisgthere's an options button somewhere there14:36
alkisgLayl-Ubuntu: ah, software-properties-gtk will also do :)14:36
Layl-Ubuntualkisg: what do you mean?14:37
alkisgInstead of running update-manager and clicking on settings, you can enable the universe repository from software-properties-gtk14:37
Layl-Ubuntuah nevermind I misunderstood that line, I see the settings now14:37
Layl-Ubuntualkisg: I'm not sure how I can enable universe in the settings, it's not giving me a checkmark next to universe14:39
geirhacodepython777: You should get your connection fixed14:39
alkisgLayl-Ubuntu: can't help there without seeing your screen, maybe you can directly put the line in sources.list... google a bit about "enable universe ubuntu"14:40
Laylalkisg, ran the line without enabling universe14:40
alkisgLayl, ah, you have an ubuntu-gnome live cd, which already has universe enabled :)14:40
ioriadesignbybeck_, maybe is related to get or wget used by apt for searching package and other stuff14:44
designbybeck_ahh ioria I knew of wget, maybe so... Not a big deal, I just always wondered where that came from14:45
alkisgLayl, so, in kvm it boots with the latest kernel14:45
alkisgNo gdm there though14:45
alkisgI think you should try with 14.04 or 15.04, so that you don't debug already resolved issues...14:46
LaylI'll try with 15.0414:46
Layljust to make sure it won't try to re-install a kernel again14:46
danbower^worki've just executed some debug code on the cli and there's an outrageous amount of text. cli won't respond to a ctrl-c. is it possible to kill it from another tmux window?14:46
alkisgLayl, if you want, you can remove raid members from there, format them etc14:48
alkisgOr you can keep using raid, whatever you like14:48
Laylalkisg, can I from here safely install ubuntu to non-raid?14:49
Laylby creating new partitions for it14:49
alkisgIf you remove raid members correctly, yes14:49
Laylthen installing grub to /dev/sda?14:49
alkisgBut if you just go ahead and format them, you'll have issues...14:49
alkisgYes you can install grub to both /dev/sda and /dev/sdb if you want14:49
Laylhm, so I'm not quite sure what to do here then, what's the correct way to add/remove stuff here then?14:50
alkisgLayl, if you're not very experienced with raid just leave it as it is, it's fine14:51
Laylalright then, should I format the partitions to allow ubuntu to install to them?14:51
LaylI recall it being said that the installer doesn't like fakeraid setups and formatting from there won't work14:52
alkisgLayl, I'm not sure how the installer copes with raid nowadays, but you should be able to use mdadm, gparted etc14:53
Agent86Hi all14:54
Agent86how can I get a status of avconv to use in a progress bar14:54
Laylalkisg, I'll re-do how I formatted the partitions before, could you watch along to see if I'm doing it right?14:54
Laylmeanwhile on my laptop I'm burning a dvd with 15.0414:54
Agent86in other words avcon starts converting and I want to know the progress in percent14:55
r_riosIt's a segmentation fault14:55
alkisgLayl, I don't have *that* much free time, but if the problem persists after installing 15.04, I could have a look then14:55
Agent86does avcon have something or perhaps a python subsystem14:55
LaylI'll just stay a bit in this chat then while I do the install of 15.04 and see if it works14:56
Laylalkisg, one last question for that install, should I be installing grub to Volume01 or /dev/sda when I'm using raid?14:56
alkisgLayl, I'm not sure about fakeraid, on software raid I had to install it to /dev/sda14:57
alkisgSince it worked with dev/mapper, use that now too14:57
Laylpreviously on fakeraid, it didn't work to /dev/sda, so I think it's gonna have to be Volume01 then14:57
r_riosHere's the segfault when I try to open GMail: http://pastebin.com/wstymUm414:57
ioriaAgent86, this is for ffmpeg but maybe you can adapt for avconv : https://gist.github.com/pruperting/39750914:58
Laylalkisg, thanks a lot for the help and patience with this problem14:58
alkisgYou're welcome Layl, although I couldn't help much other than the advice for reinstallation :)14:59

Agent86on by default I see that, and it does print to screen but I want to use this info from stats to create a python ttk.Progressbar15:16
Agent86I just need calculations so not sure how to create a -stats variable to capture info from the console to a python variable15:16
Agent86although the encoding progress is strange in avconv it does not really show any percentage as you would think it's more of a bytes/s etc.15:17

Laylwhich does not make a kernel update so there's no way for grub to get confused to hell and back15:35
kolbei have an Ubuntu 14.04 VM with a x86_64 CPU. i added a repository that has a Release file with "Architectures: amd64". when i do ''apt-get update'', the repo i added causes this message: "Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)". i'm told this is because of "multiarch support". is it configurable?15:35

OerHekskolbe, not really an error from ubuntu's side, that repo sucks.15:43
kolbeOerHeks: that's fine. i'm asking why the OS is looking for packages for an architecture other than the one used by its kernel.15:43
kolbeOerHeks: i understand there's a problem with the repo, and i'm going to try to get it fixed, but i'm trying to get some additional information and learn a bit about Ubuntu in the meantime.15:44

=== peppelakappa is now known as gs
OerHekskolbe, for instance, if that repo gives a list with packages:i386 and there has been a change, only with i386 packages and they build them fresh, the x86-64 part will surely find only older/depreciated/removed versions.15:46
asad2005I bought a new 4TB hard disk which i plan to use as data drive, what file system should i use and should i make single or more than one partition. I am using ubuntu 15.04 beta15:46

=== gs is now known as plk
kolbeOerHeks: there are no i386 packages at all for this product, so i don't see that being a problem.15:46

asad2005EriC^^: and should i maek multi partitions15:49
daftykinspeppelakappa: what version?15:49
EriC^^asad2005: up to you, theoretically, if one system gets corrupted you'd still have data15:49
peppelakappadaftykins, basically every version since 14.0415:49
peppelakappaa core is stuck at 70% usage, even when doing absolutely anything15:49
daftykinspeppelakappa: including? so all kernels 3.13+ ?15:50
peppelakappadaftykins, the problem appears to be existing since 3.14 kernel15:50
twokayevenin all....got a small problem with executables being run from the shell... http://paste.ubuntu.com/10816653/ Any ideas on why even if its in my path it cant be found and is looking in an old location (I removed the package ruby and compiled my own)15:50
daftykinspeppelakappa: so 3.13 is fine? :P15:51
peppelakappadaftykins, yeah15:51
daftykinsso the solution sounds like to run 14.04 to me.15:51
peppelakappai'm using a retina mbp so having latest kernel releases is a must15:51
daftykinsoh a mac - ok that changes everything entirely15:51
daftykinswait for 15.04 to go final then15:51
EriC^^twokay: type ls -l `which ruby`15:52
yorwospeppe , i dont know , one time i was running @folding , all my cpus at 100% , i had closed the program it didnt show in task manager but it was obviously running15:52
EriC^^twokay: maybe the symlink is broken15:52
peppelakappathis is why I asked if someone have this problem too: i'm on  15.05 daily and the problem persists :-/15:52
peppelakappayorwos, heh, there's no process eating cpu, even perf top says nothing15:52
twokayEriC^^: -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 138093 Apr 13 16:01 /usr/local/bin/ruby15:53

twokayit works.15:53
daftykinspeppelakappa: ok well 15.04 talk is in #ubuntu+115:53
twokayam I beig daft or is this odd?15:53
OerHekspeppelakappa, only one core, 70% ? is that bad?15:53
peppelakappadaftykins, joining, ty15:54
yorwosi mean @folding was still running but it didnt show in task manager , higher cpu usage was 3% while the xfce cpu graph plugin showed it at full 100%15:54
peppelakappaOerHeks, it's really bad considering that's a notebook after all15:54
EriC^^twokay: no, it's pretty odd15:54
peppelakappaand for example, framerate on cs:go is awful probably because of this15:54
twokaythought so...Im not a linux newbie really. Feels like it tho :)15:54
EriC^^twokay: are there any aliases? try alias15:54
twokayunless its a symlink...yeah thats it.one sec15:55
twokayEriC^^: nope no mention of it15:55
twokayEriC^^: symlink in another location onthe path pointing to the old version? a locate doesnt find it nor does a find.15:56

MonkeyDust!latest | nogoodnamesleft here's why16:32
ubottunogoodnamesleft here's why: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.16:32
nogoodnamesleftAh ok. And openjdk is version 8 compatible?16:32
anmolGoclick, but hardware dont lie. when i use ubuntu my fan runs at full speed while in windows not until i dont put a load on cpu16:33
=== `hypermist` is now known as sleepypc
GoClickanmol: Fan speed is controlled by OS, Ubuntu may not have drivers to throttle your fans. Although it’s entierly possible Ubuntu is running more commands. Windows doesn’t do all that much stuff out of the box in the background. Ubuntu is indexing for search and generally (I may be crucefied for saying this) actually kind of bloaty16:34
GoClicknogoodnamesleft: OpenJDK is v716:34
GoClicknogoodnamesleft: My mistake no it’s Java 816:35
adminewbtrying here to diagnose some trouble logging in to unity desktop on trusty; rather than just log in to a certain account's desktop (while other accounts are fine), it just blacks the screen for a moment and repaints the same login greeter; where do I find the pertinent log files? /var/log/Xorg.0.log doesn't appear to be the one16:35
anmolGoclick. i think fan speed is controlled by BIOS and a OS has nothing to do with it16:35
adminewbI should mention that login to the troubled account on a tty works fine16:36
nogoodnamesleftI found pakcage "openjdk-8-jre" in Universe16:36
ubottuTo access CPU temperature sensors and detect fan speeds, install the lm-sensors package. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SensorInstallHowto for installation and usage instructions.16:36

OerHeksadminewb, login with tty2 ( ctrl alt F2) and see the permissions of ~/.Xauthority , is it owned by root or the $USER ?16:38
GoClickanmol: perhaps, but in my experience motherboards often run the fans at full speed unless the OS tells them to run it slower. A good sign one way or another is what does the fan do durring boot. Remember every hardware manufacturer is in bed with Microsoft so Windows can do a lot of things out of the box16:39
adminewbOerHeks, it's owned by root:root16:39
OerHeksadminewb, that is the problem, it should be owned by the user.16:39
MonkeyDustWindows is the Main Stream, hence: MS Windows16:39

Pinkamen1_Dlol, wer working with linux here, we don't have to resort to that. =D17:33
tgm4883ubuntuterrorist: then it should be easy enough to just partition some space out and set up the partitions17:33
ubuntuterroristI get the same results by selecting "something else"17:34
tgm4883ubuntuterrorist: ok, but did you set up the parititons when selecting that?17:34
MittPinkamen1_D lol but then don't close the terminal17:34
ubuntuterroristtgm4883: I can only select sda2, choose filesystem type and mount point17:35
ubuntuterroristI cannot resize anything17:35
ubuntuterroristthe only solution is to ignore the swap warning17:35
Pinkamen1_DSure, its unusual, but I KNOW someone knows a way to launch a process without requiring that the actual graphical window stay open. For example, whatever process is called when you press alt+f217:35
tgm4883ubuntuterrorist: what is sda2?17:35
ubuntuterroristtgm4883: empty partition17:35
ubuntuterroristsda1 windows, sda3 windows17:36

ubuntuterroristsda2 should be ubuntu17:36
Pinkamen1_Dwhat is that binary called?17:36
Mittit's on keyboard shortcuts17:36
Pinkamen1_DBut I can not use unity things before launching unity.17:37
tgm4883ubuntuterrorist: I might have to boot the iso in a VM to check this. Shouldn't sda2 actually be nothing right now since we haven't installed anything yet?17:37
MittPinkamen1_D look for words with "launcher"17:37
tgm4883ubuntuterrorist: I believe it should just be labeled free space17:37
ubuntuterroristtgm4883: sda2 is empty, it "should be ubuntu" after I install it there17:38
tgm4883ubuntuterrorist: Can you delete sda217:38

baxxI'm having trouble with LaTex as the Ubuntu Repos are a bit behind the official sites. I'm wondering about how I would go about uninstalling and reinstalling tex, and what I should be aware of htere.17:57
tgm4883baxx: uninstalling and reinstalling the same version?17:58

ubottuLaunchpad bug 1407505 in linux (Ubuntu Vivid) "No UMS support in radeon module" [Medium,Confirmed]18:29
CombatjuanHello.  I have ~200 servers running Ubuntu 14.04.  Of them ~50% have pid_max set to 32768, ~50% to 49152, but the newest two have it set to 147456.  I can't figure out what is setting them that way.  It's not in sysctl.conf.  syslog sets it to that value on boot.  Why?  Where?  How?18:29
CombatjuanThe internet seems to think that pid_max is set by /etc/sysctl.conf but it's not being set there.  And it looks like threads.h controls the default value but I don't see how that could be getting the value 147456.  I feel like I've googled to the end of the internet.  So here I am.  any ideas?18:31
hkrrsxCombatjuan: Check this out .... http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-linux-increase-pid-limits.html18:32
Combatjuanhkrrsx: Yes.  That shows how to set it but not where the default would be coming from.18:32
MDTech-us_MANmaybe it is somehow calculated on install18:33
geniiCombatjuan: Check /etc/security/limits.conf18:33
MDTech-us_MANor on boot18:33
MDTech-us_MANor that18:33
CombatjuanI think that's likely.  And given that the two new servers run V3 intel server processors, it seems likely it somehow comes from there.  But I can't find where it's even saved on disk.18:33
MDTech-us_MANcheck genii's suggestion18:35
Combatjuangenii, nothing in there.  More generally, the following have no results: grep 147456 -R /etc; grep pid_max -R /etc -i;18:35
MDTech-us_MANthen it may be calculated on boot18:36
MDTech-us_MANwhich is smarted than only doing it on install18:36
MDTech-us_MANif it is done on install, then there may be problems if the hardware was upgraded and it did not change it18:36
CombatjuanVery true.  So I guess I can force it to some value <= 65536 in sysctl.conf.18:36
MDTech-us_MANbut why would you need it to be the same in the first place?18:37
geniiCombatjuan: Yeah you could use kernel.pid_max   value in there18:37
geniiPerhaps they are running different kernels than the others18:37
MDTech-us_MANif it is calculated by the system, then there must be some reason they are different18:38
_Trullowhen is linux 4 beeing released?18:38
MDTech-us_MANcheck the kernels are the same, like genii said18:38
ioriaMDTech-us_MAN,  you can try with others parameters after clocksource, -  acpi_pm, or hpet18:38
geniiMDTech-us_MAN: Yes, that's why I'm wondering about kernel versions. Might be 32vs 64 bit kernel thing, or later kernel might have higher default18:38
genii_Trullo: You could ask in ##linux18:39
MDTech-us_MANyea, exactly my point, genii18:39
EriC^^cat /proc/sys/kernel/pid_max18:39
MDTech-us_MANioria, i'll give it a try18:39
EriC^^it's in /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libprocps.so.3.0.018:40
=== thomas_ is now known as Guest24420
geniiSo libprocps3 package18:41
Combatjuangenii - They are running the same kernels (well, at least most of them are).18:42
geniiCombatjuan: Operative word here might be "most"18:43
CombatjuanNah.  My sample size on this is large enough that I'm certain those are the only machines that have the 147456 value.  And they've had it on their last 3 kernel versions. None of the others have on the same kernel versions.18:43
MDTech-us_MANwell, if there are 2 different servers with the same kernel but different pidmax....18:44
CombatjuanMDTech-us_MAN: That is the case.18:44
MDTech-us_MANso, my guess is it is calculated somewhere, somehow18:44
MDTech-us_MANpossibly according to the specs18:45
CombatjuanEriC^^: I think you may have been talking to me.  pid_max is 147456 (as given by /proc/sys/kernel/pid_max) on 2 servers and something different on a hundred others.18:45
geniiThonly other limiting factor for pid I can think of would be the limit of subdirectories allowed on a partuclar filesystem since /proc<Pdid#> has to be created for each one18:48
=== sergio_ is now known as Guest52849
geniimeh typos18:49
Combatjuangenii: That's actually an interesting theory....  Well, they're all ext4, but it does just so happen that the two that have 147456 are also the only two that have SSDs (which may have changed some part of the filesystem setup during the install?)18:50

ronhdo I need swap? I wasn't counting for it.18:59
ronh16 GB of ram19:00

tgm4883bekks: isn't it RAM+1MB? I thought there was a tiny bit of overhead19:04
ronhif I need to hibernate would swap need to equal ram in size?19:04
MDTech-us_MANat least19:04
MDTech-us_MANthere is always sleep though....19:04
bekksronh: Yes.19:04
bekksronh: you'll need a small overhead too, like 100M.19:04

TimeVirusthen I have to have 2 primary partitions, 1 for Ubuntu and 1 for swap, yes?19:26
TimeVirusI was hoping to use LVM with 1 partiton19:26
gunnarChecking ioria's link19:26
=== ofoto is now known as yorwos
TimeVirusalso remember reading somewhere that Linux doesnt even need 1 primary partition19:27
TimeVirusat least for Ubuntu is that untrue?19:27
TimeVirusmust be19:27
gunnarOK I think this will help: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lvm19:27

TimeVirusgetting this guy on Linux is ROUGH!19:29
ioriahi  gunnar how are you doing ?19:29
gunnarSuper, you?19:29
yorwosshould i try to purge kde-workspace and reinstall it or does it look like something is weird with my system ?  i also seem to have lots of xorg.conf files but they all look like backups , either.original-3 or fglrx-319:29

yorwosif i "sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf" to reconfigure it it says there is no such file19:31
magicukHey guys long time no speak , yes i just fucked up oh well19:31
Ben64yorwos: it doesn't exist by default, and thats not how to reconfigure it19:31
Ben64magicuk: watch the language19:31
geniiyorwos: No xorg.conf is created ny default any longer.19:32
TimeVirusso just to clear this up - Ubuntu and Swap each need ot have a primary partition to be installed - is that right? Dual boot included ofc19:32
Ben64TimeVirus: no19:32
yorwosis there a reason i shouold create one ?19:32
k1lTimeVirus: make an extended partition and put all ubuntu partitions in there19:32
yorwosmy problem is kwin cant use opengl after uninstalling amd proprie19:33
TimeViruscool then19:33
k1lso the extended counts as one primary then19:33
TimeVirusright got it thanks19:33
RudyValencia-Hi, so I'm trying to set up an email server for my organization, is there a good guide on how to set up a proper, secure email server?19:33
=== RudyValencia- is now known as RudyValencia
ioriaRudyValencia-, sure ... give me a sec19:34
zerobyteRudyValencia: i like this one -> http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Mail_Server_setup19:35
RudyValenciadoes it provide secure (TLS-encrypted) access?19:36
yorwosdoes this opengl thing have to do with xorg.conf maybe or should i look other solutions ?19:36
magicukfinaly :)19:36
magicuksorry about that lol19:36
geniiyorwos: Did you purge the proprietary ones as described here? https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/VideoDriverDetection#Problem:_Need_to_purge_-fglrx19:36
AloeVerayorwos: didnt see your issue, but openGL problems are usually related to your drivers19:36
ioriaRudyValencia-, in two words, you have to install postfix and dovecot, plus amavis clamav and if you want virtual user a database managment...19:37
ioriaRudyValencia, sure if you configure postfix and dovecot19:38
yorwosi used http://askubuntu.com/questions/68306/how-do-i-remove-the-proprietary-ati-drivers the commands seem to be the same19:38
RudyValenciaOK I'll try again :)19:38
ioriaRudyValencia, http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Mail_Server_setup19:39
gunnarioria:  One quick question, just for kicks I want to set up my own mail server, I'm thinking about forwarding all my gmal stuff there.  What do you think about anubis and an intermediary?19:39
gunnaranubis as an intermediary*19:39
stacks88RudyValencia google iredmail19:39
ioriaRudyValencia, a smart host is another thing...19:39
stacks88its a good solution rolled into one19:39
yorwosok i have to reboot brb19:40
stacks88but you may want to create a guest linux vm for it and run it on there19:40
stacks88i too was needign a mail solution19:40
ioriaRudyValencia, i thought it was for internal usage19:40
stacks88and im telling you iredmail was a savior19:40
ioriaRudyValencia, but it can be done19:40
stacks88It uses dovecot, postfix and all that19:40
RudyValenciaall it will be is email for a handful of domains19:40
RudyValenciaand with aliases19:41
RudyValenciaI'll try out iredmail :)19:41
ioriaRudyValencia, virtual users you eman ?19:41
gunnarioria: do you know anything at all about anubisÐ19:41
RudyValenciagunnar: no19:41
RudyValenciaoops, sorry19:41
ioriagunnar ... not at the moment , sorry :_(19:42
RudyValenciaioria: yeah, e.g. info@example.com goes to ducky@example.com and legs@example.com19:42
gunnarioria: that's ok, thanks anyway :)19:42
ioriaRudyValencia, yes, np19:42
RudyValenciahm, $500 for iredadmin with web panel is a bit much19:42
RudyValenciaoops iredmail19:42
stacks88RudyValencia you dont need the pro panel19:42
stacks88it comes w/ free panel19:42
ioriaRudyValencia, :-)19:43
RudyValenciaoh, does it provide enough to configure simple email with secure (TLS) access and virtual addresses?19:43
ioriaRudyValencia, it's not difficult... i was looking for a good link... that now exists only in italian..19:43
stacks88RudyValencia i was just like you. I was sitting there trying to do dovecot and postfix by hand and all that, and its possible, but screw all that. iredmail is one big solution its dope. trust me, you'll see. Create a linux guest vm and put it on there and you will see19:43
RudyValenciastacks88: I'll just set it up on this new Linode VM I'm building19:44
gunnarstacks88: You wouldn't happen to be one of the devs if iredmail, would you? :P19:44

EriC^^yorwos: ok and you tried to remove it and stuff got messed up?19:55
EriC^^yorwos: there's supposed to be an uninstall bin in /usr/share/ati or so, i didn't find it though19:56
EriC^^and purging it and reinstalling the xorg ones wouldn't boot so i had to reinstall the ati ones19:57
yorwosi removed it and kwin window manager running on top of my xfce lost some effects with the error u need opengl for this and click opengl options does nothing19:57

john_doe_jrhow to merge unallocated space using gparted ubuntu20:08
yorwosthanx :)20:08
EriC^^yorwos: no problem :)20:08
MonkeyDustjohn_doe_jr  if both partitions are primary or extended (must be the same) : backup, then delete the other partition, merge, put data back20:10
EriC^^john_doe_jr: boot a live usb if it's an ubuntu partition and right click and click on resize20:12
EriC^^john_doe_jr: backing up first is probably a good idea20:13
MonkeyDustjohn_doe_jr  EriC^^ resizing without dataloss can be done, technically, but it takes forever (I tried it)20:14
EriC^^MonkeyDust: never tried it but i guess it would unless the space is right after the partition20:15

ki7mtOerHeks, yes, that's what script I need to use, but I can't find a Ubuntu package that is using it. Mostly they use update-alternatives., which I may have to use that in conjunction with Conflicts: xxx22:58
newbnewbdammit its not working the same now...the applications icon in the dock opens the home folder now22:58
newbnewband suddenly firefox has no minimize and close buttons22:59
newbnewbso frustrating22:59
MonkeyDustnewbnewb  whatever went wrong durin installation, all should work out of the box22:59
newbnewbi thought it should....everything is a mess23:00
malgorathI have 4 drives in my computer not in use and I was thinking of raiding the, they are all same exact drive type. DOes anyone have a site or link that would help me with this?23:00
newbnewbi downloaded from the ubuntu site23:00
Kenb52newbnewb Its an Xwindows problem, but I am newb also23:00
do0fY3hi all23:00
do0fY3someone here who wants to help a noob with 1 or 2 thing? :D23:00
PazoozaMine does, v37.0.1 from mirrors23:00
newbnewbEricC.....the Applications Icon we made and put in the dock....it doesnt behave the same now23:01
newbnewbI open it and it acts just like the nautilus icon...taking me to home23:01
do0fY3i need help formatting and mouting 2 drives on a ubuntu machine23:02
EriC^^newbnewb: did it work before?23:02
newbnewbno idea what happened23:03
newbnewbI didnt do anything but open it23:03
Kenb52Deja dup, if you copy around the backup you have to go into location and select the right one, and it seems to list the same hard drive twice, the top one seems to work however.23:03
newbnewbthis is ridiculous23:04
newbnewbubuntu was supposed to be newbie friendly23:04
tgm4883newbnewb: what are you trying to do?23:05
Kenb52do0fy3: are you installing Ubuntu or just installing more storage drives?23:05
newbnewbtgm4883 EricC has been helping me all day long....the software manager and software updater were broken....i tried reinstalling a few times....he fixed it but not without troubles23:05
do0fY3no, i installed zentyal on an ssd. there are 2 more 4TB hdds in there and i want them to perma mount and use them as network storage23:06
tgm4883newbnewb: something tells me I don't even want to touch this23:06
do0fY3but i dont even understand how to get them running :D23:06
newbnewbnow I am tyring to put folders in the dock....for apps, music, photos etc so I have easy access to all those at top level23:06
Kenb52Disk Utility is by far the best way to do stuff rather than GPARTED which will not allow you to own the hard drive after formatting it.23:06
newbnewbi do exactly what I am told...the outputs don't make sense often...something does work then it breaks suddenly later...I cant even get things stable to start learning23:07
compdocnewbnewb, those things dont break by themselves, for no reason23:07
newbnewbthey have23:07
newbnewbeveryone says that....then it happens and they say "hmm that doesn make sense"23:07
tgm4883newbnewb: no... they don't23:07
do0fY3disk utility? on console?23:07
do0fY3or via zentyal backend?23:08
newbnewbtgm...my point is i do something I am told....if it works then it seems to stop later23:08
Kenb52What makes sense to 1 person does not make sense to all'23:08
newbnewbthis apps folder is an example23:08
tgm4883newbnewb: so I'm guessing that just right clicking the nautilus icon and clicking on what you want to access is too much?23:08
newbnewbhe helped me create it...put it in doc...it did what I wanted23:08
Kenb52Can be too much.23:08
newbnewbits not to much but I simply want to cut one click out and have them on the dock like OSX23:08
newbnewbits just preference....and I dont know why its so complicated23:08
newbnewbwe did it...it worked...now it doesnt23:09
do0fY3can someone tell me how to permanent mound sdc oder sdb to a folder?23:09
newbnewball I did was open it and close it...second time I opened it something different came up23:09
Kenb52Hmm my Vizio TV/Monitor does NOT like me turning on my FL gooseneck lamp. It causes the monitor to black out for a second.23:09
newbnewbEricC are you still here?23:09
tgm4883newbnewb: I've got to head home soon, but can you pastebin what is in that file?23:09
newbnewbtgm I dont know what pastebin means....I am brand new...and have spent 3 days trying to get installed and set up23:10
newbnewband its still wonky23:10
newbnewbeveryone tells me different commands or advice....80% doesnt work...then people get irritated at me23:11
tgm4883!pastebin | newbnewb23:11
newbnewbi just wanted to install...and learn23:11

Kenb52So does anyone know how to make Clementine music player, to see the bookmarked shares ??23:11
Kenb52Only when system is first booted. You open PCMANFM and after that it is fine.23:12
newbnewbi dont even understand what I a supposed to paste.....shit23:12
newbnewbthree days of this is gotten me bruned out23:12
tgm4883newbnewb: the contents of the file that is no longer working23:13
newbnewbi deleted it from the dock since it didnt work...so I cant do that23:13
daved_Hi--I have LVM questions about how to re-size the filesystem folders. Anybody able to help?23:13
newbnewbit was an icon that looked like a file cabinet...just like Nautlus....and instead of nautlius it was named applications and opened to all the apps visible in a window23:14
tgm4883newbnewb: I'm honestly now sure what you want from us then. If you are just going to moan and complain please take it to #ubuntu-offtopic23:14
EriC^^newbnewb: if you want a dock like mac and easy access icons you could install cairo-dock23:14
Kenb52How do I automount shares in PCMANFM?23:14
newbnewbtgm I am not JUST moaning jesus23:14
newbnewbthings dont work...then I get told I am wrong23:14
newbnewbim doing what I am told....exactly23:14
newbnewbthanks eric23:15
newbnewbwill try...hopefully it will work23:15
tgm4883newbnewb: I ask you to post some stuff, you don't have anything to post. You can't tell me what you are trying to do now, it's time to go home, so I'm out23:15
newbnewbI told you and you are more interested in telling me what I am doing wrong in your eyes like most here23:16
newbnewbEricC is the only one helping23:16
bazhangnewbnewb, stop that23:16
newbnewbhe has been more than patient....others just want to tell me why I am wrong23:17
bazhangnewbnewb, many are helping you here23:17
Kenb52I find the google searched stuff is usually wrong. I guess that Gigolo is the only really simple workaround to get this done.23:17
newbnewbEricC is only one who fixed anything and it took all day....23:17
bazhangnewbnewb, but you are not giving us the info we need23:17
newbnewbi give what I can and what I know23:17
newbnewbi explain my limits and people still wont accept23:17
EriC^^newbnewb: i got it working here23:18
newbnewbEricC cairo?23:18
=== kalen_not-here is now known as kalen
EriC^^no the applications icon in the launcher23:18
newbnewbi dont know what changed23:18
newbnewbit worked for me too23:18
EriC^^i had to add it twice though23:18
=== ChrisD24 is now known as Chris24
newbnewbthen second opening of it suddenly it acted like nautilus icon23:18
EriC^^mine turned both into applications icons23:19
newbnewbif I use cairo can I just drag and drop those folders?23:19
EriC^^so i unlocked them from the launcher and readded and they worked23:19
newbnewbrather than all this CLI stuff?23:19
EriC^^newbnewb: i've only used cairo shortly then uninstalled23:19
=== kalen is now known as kalen_not-here
EriC^^but i remember it had alot of customization stuff23:19
newbnewbits chinese to me what we did to get it on the dock...I couldnt repeat it alone23:19
newbnewbif it works how can I shut off the unity launcher dock so I dont have two docks23:20
EriC^^newbnewb: you could try to add it back and see if it works23:20
EriC^^if you're keen on using the launcher23:20
EriC^^or you could give cairo a shot23:20
newbnewbEricC I could never manage again....without step by step instructions23:21
newbnewband I am sure yuou are as sick of this as me23:21
Kenb52Anyone know of a better desktop icon organizer?23:21
EriC^^newbnewb: just type nautilus /usr/share/applications and drag it to the launcher23:21
newbnewbthere is nothing to drag23:22
newbnewbit just opens a nautlius window with all the apps showing....23:22
newbnewbno icon for just apps is created23:22
EriC^^anyways it seems like a bad idea23:22
EriC^^i'm noticing the icon flashes red and stalls if you have both open etc.23:23
EriC^^cairo would be better i guess, try it out23:23
newbnewbif i just drag the apps icon from within the folder with all apps showing it just creates another nautilus file cabinet23:23
newbnewbok so if I use cairo how do I shut off the unity launcher so I dont have two docks23:24
EriC^^if you hover over it does it say applications or files?23:24
newbnewbapplicaitons...and now my normal nautilus file is gone23:25
newbnewball I have is the one saying applications but that opens to what nautilus opened to...the home folder23:26
newbnewbI put the new applications icon in the dock like you said...and nautilus disappeared23:26
EriC^^newbnewb: i think you have to unlock both and add them23:27
EriC^^but anyways i dont like it23:27
EriC^^nautilus hangs for a bit before opening23:27
EriC^^use cairo-dock instead23:27
newbnewbI dont know how23:27
newbnewbnautilus is gone now23:27
EriC^^sudo apt-get install cairo-dock23:27
