EriC^^could be ext hdd00:00
Captonjamasoni dont have any ext hdd00:00
Captonjamasoni ran through the installer, rebooted, and its gives me a screen with nothing on it00:00
Captonjamasonits been like that for about 30 min now00:01
MikeRLYay my bug report is going through. Just took some thinking to find the correct package.00:01
EriC^^is it the only os?00:01
EriC^^grub wont show thrn00:01
Captonjamasoni mean00:01
EriC^^!nomodeset | Cap00:01
ubottuCap: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter00:01
Captonjamasonits not giving me anything00:02
Captonjamasonit just has the little bar like its terminal00:02
Captonjamasonthats it00:02
Captonjamason'cant typoe00:02
wafflejockCaptonjamason, yeah when booting hold down shift to get grub to show up then hit e to edit your boot config00:02
Captonjamasonill try00:03
wafflejockCaptonjamason, in the boot params that show up add nomodeset where you see quiet and/or nosplash00:03
Captonjamasonthat doesnt work wafflejock00:03
wafflejockCaptonjamason, it'll load up with the vesa video drivers that are generic so the graphics performance/resolution may not be great but should allow you to get into the graphical interface to possibly update the drivers00:03
wafflejockCaptonjamason, which part exactly?00:03
MoonlightningI created a file in /tmp and set it world-readable, but the guest account gets a permission-denied error trying to `cat` it. What gives?00:04
Captonjamasonits just a black screen with the little white line like terminal00:04

wafflejockCaptonjamason, you need to be specific to get help, couldn't get into grub?00:04
Captonjamasoncant type anything00:04
wafflejockCaptonjamason, you need to be holding shift as it's booting just after the BIOS/POST is done to get into grub00:04
Captonjamasonthat doesnt help00:05

dimitry7Hi Guys I am getting this: TLS Error: TLS handshake failed00:05
dimitry7and this: read UDPv4 [ECONNREFUSED]: Connection refused (code=111)00:05
Captonjamasoni dont even think it has grub installed wafflejock00:05
dimitry7but only when I set UDP as port, if I set TCP it works... what's wrong?00:05
Ben64Captonjamason: spam the shift button00:05
Captonjamasonive been doing that00:06
dimitry7In my firewall I have enabled UDP in both directions00:06
EriC^^Captonjamason: if grub wasn't installed then your bios would say no operating system detected or something00:06
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1448351 in system-config-printer (Ubuntu) "Preserve job files (allow reprinting) causes UI freeze" [Undecided,New]00:06
MikeRLReport should be good now.00:06
MikeRLI miss anything?00:06
EriC^^Captonjamason: you're probably booting grub then booting ubuntu but have a graphics driver issue00:06
Captonjamasoni have no issues with graphics00:06
Bashing-omCaptonjamason: That condition indicates that bios can not hand off to the boot code . IF you can not boot to the grub boot menu, perhaps consider (RE-)installing grub ?00:07
Ben64except for the part where you don't have any graphics?00:07
wafflejockCaptonjamason, here are instructions on reinstalling grub from a live cd http://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-repair-restore-reinstall-grub-2-with-a-ubuntu-live-cd00:07
MikeRLTry boot-repair.00:07
MikeRLFrom an Ubuntu Live CD. That works around GRUB issues for me.00:08
MoonlightningEriC^^: /tmp is a+rxt though00:08
Ben64grub is likely already installed, if it wasn't there would be an error message like "No boot disk found"00:08
CaptonjamasonBen64: all i have graphics wise is a white line like terminal00:08
EriC^^Moonlightning: guest is different, it can't even read home dirs even if they are set to read for everyone00:08
Captonjamasoni am trying to get a video to show you00:08
MoonlightningEriC^^: got a resource on this phenomenon for me?00:09
EriC^^Moonlightning: what are you trying to do?00:09
Ben64Captonjamason: we know what a black screen looks like. try harder to get grub to come up, spam the shift key during boot00:09
wafflejockCaptonjamason, yeah just get into the live CD you can check out if you have your grub configuration in place, if there is a problem with grub there you can get it installed if not you can change the config to have a timeout to show the menu00:09
MoonlightningEriC^^: Nothing; just curious as to why this is happening.00:10
wafflejockCaptonjamason, after getting in there you can get rid of the quiet flag so you see all the parts of the system coming up and can see if it fails at some point there, if it fails when it tries to start up and switch over the the X display then it's probably graphics driver issues in which case you want to use the nomodeset flag00:10
EriC^^Moonlightning: oh ok00:13
MikeRLI'm not asking to expedite the bug, if anyone is wondering, but when yuu guys are done helping who your are currently, look at the URL I gave out and see if the report looks complete.00:13

mchelendaftykins: ah too bad, it would be a nice feature to have01:40
wafflejockgioans, LTS is good if you don't care about bleeding edge updates otherwise you need to upgrade every 6 months, for work machines and servers I stick with LTS personally, usually try out the in between versions from extra drives or in VMs01:40
mchelenpetrvs: yeah i know, but the contrast or bleedthrough is always an issue01:40
mchelenpetrvs: maybe if i could find an amoled desktop monitor :D01:41

gioansI am confused between versions01:44
wafflejockgioans, yeah from what I've seen in 15.04 it was mostly about the update to systemd, some small user interface changes but nothing major01:44
wafflejock!lts | gioans01:44
ubottugioans: LTS means Long Term Support. Until 12.04 LTS versions of Ubuntu were supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; since 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) LTS versions will be supported for 5 years on the desktop and server. The latest LTS version of Ubuntu is !Trusty (Trusty Tahr 14.04)01:44
wafflejockgioans, oh thought that had the link with the charts too but long story short would recommend the LTS if you aren't using/needing anything in the absolute latest version01:45
petrvsgioans: the latest version is 15.0401:45
gioansyeah! now i used version 15.04. it is unstable trouble when switching wireless networks01:47
gioanssometimes crashes and must be restarted01:48
wafflejockgioans, mostly there were just some version bumps for things like LibreOffice and things for developers, from a regular user perspective you'll have generally more stability in 14.04 for now at least http://www.zdnet.com/article/hands-on-with-ubuntu-15-04/01:48
mcheleni heard there was going to be some improvement for touchscreen laptops, but idk if that actually happened?01:49

gioansthanks! and i a question!01:50
wafflejockmchelen, but it's Unity 7.3 for 15.04 apparently01:50
wafflejockI did hear some exciting news about insanely good battery life with that recently though which does make me curious to try it01:51

gioansI lived in Vietnam and my proxy locked if i want access to foreign web, i am locking for application auto changing proxy, do you know it ?01:53
wafflejockmchelen, yeah I imagine that's going to have to be some combination of browser support and then the OS working with whatever the browsers provide01:53
wafflejockmchelen, I'm kind of surprised it wouldn't work in Chrome though they do have touch events in the browser I believe (that is distinguished from mouse events)01:54
Craigwellany thoughts out there on the best way to clone to a larger HDD? I have a USB enclosure for the new drive I can use until swap in.01:55

wafflejockgioans, not sure about that, you can change the proxy settings in the network settings manually but not sure what an automatic version of that would be doing exactly?01:56

mchelenwafflejock: yeah i can swipe to scroll, but i dont think it can see more than 1 cursor point at a time01:58
wafflejockrahulprodev, yeah Gparted is the graphical utility for modifying your partitions, many times you end up running it from a LiveCD though so nothing is mounted while you're modifying it01:58
Stanley00rahulprodev: you can use gparted to do that, but sometime you can't because of your current mount point, try using live ubuntu cd/usb then01:58
Craigwellwafflejock: I'm not overly concerned about following the guides / resources you pointed out, I'm just in no rush, and curious about preferred methods of anyone who's been there.01:58
rahulprodevthanks wafflejock , Stanley0001:59
wafflejockmchelen, hmm appears it's hidden away in the labs settings in chrome maybe try this out http://www.itworld.com/article/2693355/how-to-make-google-chrome-work-better-with-touchscreen-pcs.html01:59

Captonjamasonhey somebody on here02:02
Captonjamasonmy spotify wont launch02:03
Captonjamasonand i just installed it02:03
wafflejockCaptonjamason, try running it from the command line see if you get any error output in the terminal02:03
mchelenwafflejock: huh i just tried chromium w/o changing any settings, and pinch zoom worked!02:03
wafflejockmchelen, ah nice02:03
mchelenwafflejock: maybe it was included in a recent version02:03
gioanswafflejock : afflejock> gioans, not sure about that, you can change the proxy settings in the network settings manually but not sure what an automatic version of that would be doing exactly?02:04
Captonjamasonhow can i run it from the command line wafflejock02:04
wafflejockmchelen, yeah could easily be, I'm surprised they weren't more progressive about that with android and all though02:04
Captonjamasoni tried typing spotify-client but it wouldnt work02:04
gioanswafflejock: i am sory02:04
wafflejockCaptonjamason, can check what the Exec= is set as in /usr/share/applications there should be a spotify.desktop file somewhere in there02:05
gioanswafflejock: For me fickle, so the network manually convert complex02:05
ubuntu199não deu certo.   :(02:05
wafflejockCaptonjamason, can probably run, updatedb, then locate spotify.desktop (not positive about this name just a guess)02:05
rahulprodevwafflejock, Stanley00 , if i use gparted can i create another partition from /home partition, which is already created? or I need to use to free space.02:05
Captonjamasonim not familiar with those commands wafflejock02:05
mchelenwafflejock: yeah i thought it would be farther along, i just ordered a touchscreen laptop w/o testing because it was the same price as w/o touchscreen02:06
mkHow can I reset my display settings? I failed to install an ati driver for my HD5450 (my kernel is too new), and I've lost dualscreen and have the wrong resolution on my current monitor.02:06
mchelenwafflejock: but the support is a little uneven02:06
gioanswafflejock: i want edit one file on system, the same host of window02:06
wafflejockCaptonjamason, updatedb just updates a local db for searching for files by name without knowing their path and locate will show you the path to the file02:06
gioanswhat i to do ?02:06
Stanley00rahulprodev: you'll need live ubuntu to do that02:06
wafflejockCaptonjamason, once you have the .desktop file that's what Ubuntu uses to generate the listings for launching apps so if we can find the spotify one we can see what command it executes02:07
rahulprodevStanley00, ok thanks.02:07
Captonjamasonwafflejock: ok well then how do i use that command, im so sorry if it seems like im new to linux02:07
wafflejockCaptonjamason, if we knew the path we can do "cat /usr/share/applications/spotify.desktop" and we would see the command it executes02:07
ubuntu199instalei o ubuntu 15.04, mas não faz login. Não consigo acessar a área de trabalho. Alguém pode me ajudar?02:07
wafflejockCaptonjamason, no worries, do updatedb first in a terminal02:08
Captonjamasonnot there02:08
Captonjamasonfound it02:08
Captonjamasona quick search in file manager found it02:08
wafflejockCaptonjamason, ah cool k so if you can just open that .desktop file in a text editor it'll have a line that says Exec = something here02:08
wafflejockCaptonjamason, whatever is something here is the executable name just run that from a terminal and see if you get any error output02:09
Captonjamasoni cant open it02:09
wafflejockCaptonjamason, k you know the path from what you see?02:09
wafflejockCaptonjamason, just type, cat /path/to/file/here.desktop02:09
wafflejockin a terminal and it'll show you the contents02:09
wafflejockmight really want      cat /path/to/file/here.desktop | grep Exec02:10
wafflejockthat way it outputs the file contents and finds the line with Exec in case it's a  big desktop file02:10
CaptonjamasonExec=spotify %U02:11
Captonjamasonwhat do i do with this02:11
wafflejockCaptonjamason, k yah so the command should just be spotify, %U I'm not sure about my guess off hand would be username but not sure02:12
wafflejockcan try "man spotify", to see if it has a manual page to explain what the arguments are that it takes02:12
Captonjamasoncaptonjamason@captonjamason-X551MA:~$ spotify02:12
Captonjamasonspotify: error while loading shared libraries: libgcrypt.so.11: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory02:12
wafflejockCaptonjamason, okay looks like missing dependency02:12
Captonjamasonthats what it gave me02:12
Captonjamasoni installed it from there rep so it shouldnt have one02:13
wafflejockCaptonjamason, http://www.webupd8.org/2015/04/fix-missing-libgcrypt11-causing-spotify.html02:13
wafflejockCaptonjamason, generally not good to install PPAs but this does look like your problem probably02:13
Captonjamasonand the only way to install spotify is through there ppa02:14
wafflejockCaptonjamason, it looks like that might be the case right now, if this is something critical it'll probably get patched in 15.04 soon but I'm not privvy to any of that detail02:15
Captonjamasoni think it is02:15
Captonjamasonim installing what it needs02:15
Captonjamasonthen we should be all set02:15
Captonjamasonit fired right up02:16
Captonjamasonthanks wafflejock02:16
Captonjamasonnow i have my music02:16
mkHow can I reset my display settings to defaults? I failed to install an ati driver for my HD5450 (my kernel is too new), and I've lost dualscreen and have the wrong resolution on my current monitor.02:17
wafflejockmk, if you installed the drivers manually there probably isn't a totally trivial way to go back, you can remove the kernel modules that are loaded, did you use the GUI (jockey) for adding additional drivers or manually install?02:18
=== badon_ is now known as badon
SwitchesIf you used the installer from the ATI site you should be able to do the same command in terminal as you did to install it but add a "-u" to uninstall, that should also remove the "radeon" driver from the blacklist02:20
mkwafflejock: I used the additional drivers tool, switching from xorg xserver to proprietary amd graphics02:21
wafflejockmk, you should be able to just switch back in the same interface in that case02:22
mkI also tried a couple of installers from ati, but I think they both failed.02:22
mkwafflejock: I've switched back (and back again), but my screen is stuck on 1 monitor 1400x105002:23
wafflejockmk do lspci -k, and show the lines for your graphics card specifically the kernel module loaded is the important part02:24

rockstar_anybody knows how to highlight pdf in Ubuntu, then make it visible in Windows too?02:40
SwitchesIt looks to me like the radeon driver is still blacklisted so it can't or won't load it. If you tryed the drivers from the amd site try the command you used to install them (should be able to get to it from using the up/down keys in terminal) with a -u at the end.02:41
administradorHello. Is Ubuntu 15.04 a LTS?02:42
Switchesmk: the command should be something like "./amd-<driver version>.sh"02:42
administradorWhen is another LTS coming out?02:43
Switchesmk: You said the kernel was too new right? so im guessing you're using 15.04?02:43
wafflejockadministrador, 16.04 should be LTS, every 2 yrs typically02:43
rkingAnybody watching the game?02:43
rking@administrador, Is there a new package or something you want? or just a question?02:44

mkSwitches: uname -r returns 3.13.0-44-generic02:46
rkingAh I gotcha.02:46
Switcheshmm 14.04 then02:46
Switchesmk: not sure why its telling you the kernel is to new, the driver from AMD supports upto kernel 3.16 without patchs and 3.19 (ubuntus latest) with a patch. This isn't a switchable GPU like the Nvidia optimus?02:48
=== victor is now known as Guest92396
mkSwitches: it's an ati HD 5450. I downloaded and ran `./amd-driver-installer-14.501.1003-x86.x86_64.run`, popup said "install required pre-reqs, see log", log said fglrx installation requires that the system has kernel headers for 3.7 release.  /lib/modules/3.13.0-44-generic/build/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system.02:53
mkInstall kernel headers using the command apt-get install linux-headers-3.13.0-44-generic.02:53

MrPenguin_Could someone tell me the overall differences between xubuntu and ubuntu?02:56
SwitchesMrPenguin_: Basically the user interface, xubuntu uses XFCE, ubuntu uses Unity02:57
deadmundMrPenguin_: Only the default packages that are installed.  xubuntu has XFCE DE installed by default, ubuntu has unity.  That is all.02:57
MrPenguin_Which one runs better on high performance hardware?02:57
rking@MrPenguin_ any DE will run great on high performance machines.02:58
rkingUnless your running really low end machines, DE's are entirely preference.02:59
deadmundMrPenguin_: They run the same on "high performance" hardware.03:00

mkI did try installing it using the software centre earlier03:00
MrPenguin_i like the xubuntu interface, just didn't know that it performed well on high performance hardware thanks for the info03:01
mkI don't recall the outcome, but fglrx has an "install" button in the software centre now, so it looks like it's not installed...03:01

zero_coderdeadmund, can  i just download it and install using package manager? it wont break anything , right?03:12
deadmundzero_coder: I don't know if it will break anything.  I suspect it will "work" though.03:12
Switchesmk: Ok theres half the problem, thats still the xorg.conf for the ATI card. You could try doing "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg"03:13
deadmundzero_coder: But I really don't know.  There may be a more prudent way to do it, by adding the previous release's repos to your sources.lst   Also this: http://www.howtogeek.com/117929/how-to-downgrade-packages-on-ubuntu/03:13
mkDone, no output. Should I reboot?03:13
deadmundToxygene: When you installed Ubuntu, do you remember any choice to install the bootloader?  Do you have more than one HDD on this machine?03:13
Switchesmk: You may need to reboot for it to settle it03:13
mkxorg.conf appears unchanged03:14
deadmundToxygene: I suggest you re-launch the ubuntu installer and just try it again.  But, you'll have to be more careful with the partitioning this time.   I would choose manual "do something else" and make sure the partitioning makes sense.03:14
ToxygeneIt didn't mention anything about a bootloader, there was just a visual buide to resize the HD to make an Ubuntu partition. There are multiple hard drives.03:14
Switchesmk: hmm03:14
zero_coderdeadmund, thanks mate :)03:14
deadmundToxygene: ok, pause on that re-trying the installer.  Which HDD has ubuntu on and which has windows?03:15
Toxygenedeadmund, they're both on the same HD03:15
mkMy former card was an nvidea, it died. I installed this ATI HD5450. Dualscreen, resolution fine. Decided to try upgrading the driver (or something?) yesterday, it's been one-screen weird resolution since then.03:16
ToxygeneIt was definitely installling onto the right hard drive; it mentioned windows specifically and wanted me to resize the main partition so they was room for ubuntu.03:16
ToxygeneMaybe I need to get a terminal window open and manually setup grub?03:17
Switchesmk: Try deleting the xorg.conf you found, restart the computer (should for the Xserver to create a new one).03:17
deadmundToxygene: How can you get a terminal open if you boot straight to windows?03:17
deadmundToxygene: I guess we can install grub manually (but it's not the easiest thing to do).03:18
SwitchesThat was meant to be "force the Xserver" man i need to sleep03:18
Toxygeneyea, I think I'd have to boot off the ISO, mount the drive, chroot, ect03:18
deadmundToxygene: Here are some instructions: http://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-repair-restore-reinstall-grub-2-with-a-ubuntu-live-cd03:18
Toxygenehaha, yup, we're on the same wavelength03:19
deadmundToxygene: Didn't realize you were so well versed! (chroot no less!)  I'm very surprised the installer did not properly set up grub.  usually, at the partition step, there is an option and by default it will install grub.  Maybe it was pointing to the wrong HDD (since you have several)03:19
ToxygeneYea, I use to do this all the time back when I used Gentoo a decade ago.03:19
ToxygeneBut the hassle is exactly why I switched to Ubuntu :)03:20
ToxygeneAlright, thanks for you help!03:20
deadmundToxygene: things have changed a lot since then, we have compiz now ;)03:20

wafflejockmk, bash stores your history of commands in ~/.bash_history pretty sure when you up arrow it's just using that list03:24
Switchesmk: Worst part is mine actually runs the same HD5450 with no issues, has done for the last 6 or more years lol03:24

mkor instead of trying to revert, what new driver can I try to install to make it all work?03:26

wafflejockmk if you boot with nomodeset in the boot params it uses the vesa driver which is basically the fallback/safety driver if things go wrong but doesn't give you any hardware specific features/acceleration03:27

Haxxawafflejock, just checked apparently no - As I wrote in technical details, Canonical hardcoded buttons position in their Unity plugin. Changing of this needs this plugin to be patched by some third-party programmers. As for now such a patch is not available04:31

weakcameldo you guys/gals have any advice other than ndiswrapper?07:13
LeeenDahvonsyd0w: why manually?  it's at least 12 partitions!07:15
skierpageLeeenDah: well, you could `sudo ln -s /tmp/tmpmount/etc/fstab /etc/fstab` so that mount -a "works", but that *isn't* what you want. You already have a root on the live USB.  You can only mount the partitions that don't conflict with the live USB.07:16
wub_wubdoes anyone have any idea what could be wrong here during the startup: http://i.imgur.com/lIHz9ns.jpg ?07:16

weakcamelprashant_ I've upgraded to 15.04 and I have issues with my wifi driver07:17
raphus@LeeenDah why dont you write an alis for mounting in $HOME/.bashrc07:18
skierpageLeeenDah: I dunno if the live USB has an /etc/fstab that you can modify that will survive a reboot. If it does, then you can append lines from your hard drive's /etc/fstab to it. Otherwise, what raphus says.07:19
vonsyd0wraphus, thats a good idea or just a separate bash script. write once, run whenever you need it07:19

luckybunnyhi folks... a thought I've had is that I'd like to replace update manager/software updater with Synaptic... except for 2 things. a) I don't know exactly whether that'll be a good move in terms of feature (i.e what can i expect?) and b) I have no idea whether I can actually switch them out like that11:55
chotaz`droidEach has its purpose.11:56
luckybunnybut I like using synaptic more than I like using the ubuntu default. I can explore the packages it's recommending to be installed, rather than just look at a list and install them all11:56
OerHeksluckybunny, that is the 1st thing i install: synaptic, but you still need softwarecenter.11:56
luckybunnythen again, I like that update manager notifies me about updates, and checks regularly11:57
luckybunnyno idea if I can get synaptic to do that11:57

ubottuForgot your password? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword What's the root password? See !sudo. Don't see *** in password prompts? That's normal.

ubottuYou can identify to NickServ automatically when connecting to freenode. See https://www.freenode.net/faq.shtml#identify for more information. When identifying manually, do NOT send the command from a channel's tab, as a typo will give away your password.

tgm4883lush: so here's the deal. And this advise comes with zero warranty. Fire up a live cd and do the boot repair stuff. If it breaks everything, then you reinstall.

OerHeksWilliamDotAT, i think so, see http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/trusty/man4/nvme.4freebsd.html16:00
OerHeksto load the driver as a module at boot, place the following line in  loader.conf(5):   nvme_load="YES"16:01
daftykinsWilliamDotAT: that is not all you require for NVMe. the drive firmware must support it, the motherboard chipset must - and the EFI must be capable of booting NVMe16:02
OerHeksthere is one way to ind out, no?16:02
MonkeyDusthavent followed, what's NVMe?16:03
WilliamDotATreplacement for AHCI16:03
OerHeksMonkeyDust, newer controller, that is build for ssd's. Apple has got it in its new mbp16:03
daftykinsnon volatile memory express, AHCI's successor16:03

Steven-My sound works, but trying to control volume with amixer it will only lists IEC958 (S/PDIF) when u user 'amixer scontrols' -- Any ideas where I might go to get amixer to see my sound device?18:43
anternatbut how come i dont see rules in my.cnf although phpmyadmin gets values for them???18:43
daftykinsthat would be a question for #php18:44
ejuanAnarchic, phpmyadmin might be setting  the values for the variables without writing them to the config file.18:45
ejuanAnarchic, i have no experience with phpmyadmin so that is just my guess.18:46
bekksathan: there is only one mysql config file, yes.18:46
anternatejuan>> SET GLOBAL ft_min_word_len = 3 results in an error, says they are read only18:46
vltSteven-: try F6 to select your card18:46
athanbekks: Wrong number, sorry :P18:46
ejuananternat, is mysqld running as the mysql user or some other user?18:47
Steven-vlt I'm using amixer not alsamixer18:47
bekksathan: You have to set that in the config file.18:47
ejuanand when you run that set global command are you using the root myslq user?18:47
anternatejuan>> that command i ran thru phpmyadmin18:49
anternatand got that error18:49
bekksanternat: You have to set that value in the mysql config file.18:49
anternatas for your first question i dont know if it is running as some other user or not,but normally i dont touch things in config files to keep them as they are set defaults18:50
bekksanternat: The value you want to modify cannot be set otherwise.18:50
bekksanternat: Which Ubuntu do you have?18:50
anternatbekks>> What i dont understand is,if thers no rule in my.cnf how come phpmyadmin gets them??18:50
bekksanternat: "Default values."18:51
anternatbekss>> where do those defaults exist other than own config files?18:51
andrew_i ma new to the ubuntu chats18:52
bekksanternat: No. Default values are default values, because they arent defined in a config file, but the program itself sets them BECAUSE they arent defined elsewhere.18:52
andrew_I love ubuntu18:52
andrew_just installed it 64bits is so fast18:52
andrew_i am getting used to all the apps18:53
SaucisseCocktailU find everything you need?18:53
andrew_i got the tor browser18:53
andrew_just looking for programs or apps to try18:53
anternatbekks>> then the only choice is to add them via my.cnf(per your suggestion)18:54
bekksanternat: Thats what I said, yes.18:54
andrew_any suggestions18:54
andrew_any good programs18:54
anternatok,will give it a try, still i dont get how come a value is default without having to exist in a config file in linux..18:54
bekksanternat: for what?18:54
andrew_is there a low orbit for ubuntu18:55
bekksanternat: The same way as on other operating systems - the programs itself define them.18:55
andrew_or an ion cannon?18:55

nith1210geri: I agree with Mion that working on this as root is a bad idea unless root is the only thing available on your arm device. LD_LIBRARY_PATH should work regardless of your compilation choices.20:35

SchrodingersScatcocoony: how did you install it?  Synaptic will only know about things installed through the package manager.20:39
Bashing-omcocoony: IF you did not install from the package management system, then the package management system is not tracking the application . How did you install it ?20:39
k3asd`Bashing-om: yes, I've tried the open source driver and the situation seems the same20:39
nith1210geri: Your paste has api_test, not librp.so. ldd should run on both. Would you please run "file librp.so"20:39

penthiefAfter a seemingly successful dist upgrade, I have booted into 14.10, rather than 15.04.21:57
nith1210graceabel: I think your grub-update failed and/or the UUID's decided to change (should be impossible, have seen it on my own systems) and you need to do a grub recovery.21:57
nith1210graceabel: or, you lost a hd21:57
daftykinsdist-upgrade does not upgrade distribution version21:57
graceabelnith1210: i don't think i lost a hd21:58
penthiefOh. It was followed by "sudo do-release-upgrade -d".21:58
penthiefIt took several hours.21:58
daftykinspenthief: that's unwise to ever run.21:58
daftykinswere you on 14.04 to start with?21:58
k1lpenthief: "lsb_release -d"?21:58
graceabelI got the message immediate after rebooting from apt-get dist-upgrade21:58
penthiefDescription:Ubuntu 14.1021:59
k1lpenthief: and the -d switch is for development release. that is very unwise to use blindly.21:59
nith1210graceabel: right, which is why I think the UUID's decided to change.21:59
nith1210graceabel: Once it can't figure out where to boot to, it drops to busybox21:59
k1lpenthief: what version is named in "cat /etc/apt/sources.list"?21:59
k1lpenthief: then run a "sudo do-release-upgrade"22:00
nith1210graceabel: And recovery from there gets complicated. I'm not sure if daftykins has a link or ubuntu magic to give you instructions on how to fix it or not...22:00
k1lpenthief: so you started on a 14.0422:00
penthiefsounds right22:00
daftykinsnith1210: oh i see you're done helping and passing it back now? :)22:00
graceabelnith1210: i'm wondering if this is part of my hosting provider's scope, I've contacted them but they only do a reboot for me22:01
nith1210daftykins: My way of fixing this is messy and involves chroots from a liveUSB. I'm sure there's a more user friendly method - and you are one of the best helpers I've ever seen.22:01
penthiefdamn, if only i hadn't put Ethat -d switch in there.22:01
k1lpenthief: what is now?22:02
daftykinsgraceabel seemed to give up when i mentioned booting a live session so i don't know what you guys are up to.22:02

k1lpenthief: what gives you in the last line of "cat /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades"?22:02
daftykinsputtin a flash drive in and booting from it... but you made it sound like this is a VPS22:02
graceabeldaftykins: yes its a vps, physically server is miles away from me22:03
k1lpenthief: ok. so the 14.10 to 15.04 upgrade should work22:03
daftykinsgraceabel: then you will need to contact your provider.22:03
penthiefYes, thank you.22:03
penthiefwell, after i get around the "Not enough free disk space" !22:04
k1lpenthief: see "dpkg -l | grep linux-image"22:04
daftykinstime for an auto-remove ;)22:05
graceabeldaftykinds: ok22:05
k1lpenthief: then remove old kernel packages that are still installed with "sudo apt-get remove ....." and then a "sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean"22:05
k1lpenthief: uh, yes. all the 3.5 kernels can be uninstalled.22:07
k1lpenthief: after that you can see what linux-headers are insatlled, too. and remove the old ones22:07

Hanz_ZimmerHello everyone, I'm having some difficulty installing Ubuntu 15.04 on my machine. It's a P55-USB3.0 machine with an ATI 5850 graphics card, i5 processor, and 12gb of memory. I'm trying to install it on my 120GB Samsung SSD. I created the installer using "Startup Disk Creator" on Ubuntu on my laptop successfully and I can't boot into the installer without specifying both vga=normal and nomodeset kernel flags. Near the very end of the ins22:56
faultyjohnwhy does everyone want 15.0422:56
faultyjohn14.10 is great22:56
Hanz_ZimmerBecause I want to try out systemd.22:57
=== CyberDems is now known as fragtion
tewardfaultyjohn: that's a better question for #ubuntu-offtopic or a general discussion question - but the latest release is 15.04.22:57
MionHanz_Zimmer: your irc client is silly and didn't split your message, nor warn you, so you got cut off at "Near the very end of the ins"22:57
tewardfaultyjohn: many people want the 'newest' stuff.  (I personally use 14.04, but have VMs for 14.10 and 15.04, as a packager/bug triager/developer)22:57
Hanz_ZimmerSorry, using pidgin. Here's the rest: I get the following error: "Apt configuration problem. An attempt to configure apt to install additional packages from the CD failed” After choosing to continue, and my computer reboots, I'm greeted with Grub Rescue and the following error: "error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found"22:57
Mionfaultyjohn: because 15.04 is 1. better  2. lts22:57
Hanz_ZimmerSo I tried to boot off a live disc and reinstall Grub2 but after successfully installing grub2, and rebooting, just a grub prompt appears with no boot options.22:57
tewardMion: 15.04 is not LTS22:58
k1lfaultyjohn: support for 14.10 droppes in 3 months. so be prepared22:58
faultyjohnok sorry22:58
Mionhmm tought it was22:58
tewardMion: 14.04 is LTS, 16.04 is the next LTS22:58
faultyjohni will be22:58
k1lMion: 15.04 is not LTS.22:58
tewardMion: LTS is every 2 years, with a 5 year support cycle for those.  15.04 is NOT LTS.22:58

huigi installed the latest version using a way they recommend in their web page (http://statsmodels.sourceforge.net/stable/install.html)..now it doesn't give me an error importing the class i want to import but it gives me this error: X13NotFoundError: x12a and x13as not found on path. Give the path, put them on PATH, or set the X12PATH or X13PATH environmental variable.23:12
[n0mad]i just upgraded to 15.04 this morning and honestly everything is fine, just wondering if anyone is actually able to change their launcher color with unity tweak tool?23:15
kostkon[n0mad], maybe it's not compatible with 15.04 yet23:15
[n0mad]maybe but in omgubuntu screenshots it looks like they could change it23:16
[n0mad]that's why i was curious23:16
kostkon[n0mad], it changes according to the average colour of your wallpaper anyway23:16
[n0mad]yeah, i know,  and that's how i normally have it set23:17
[n0mad]just sometimes when i'm doing gksudo stuff it changes it to root color *purple*23:17
[n0mad]and i'm kinda wanting something like that23:17
[n0mad]for it all to be some other color23:17
[n0mad]that's all23:17
faultyjohnanyone know how to change terminal color?23:17
faultyjohnpreferably to look like the matrix23:18

k1lRNeville: see what linux-image packages are installed and remove the old ones23:19
Cukenfor sudo pvcreate /dev/sdb, does the device need to be blank?23:19
CukenOr do I need to put a ext4 partition on it?23:19
RNevillecan I just use "rm" and package name k1l23:19
k1lRNeville: no23:20
k1lRNeville: "dpkg -l | grep linux-image"23:20
gr33n7007hRNeville: dpkg -l | grep "linux-image" find the one you want to remove then dpkg -r <image>23:20

Duggydoes anyone use ps3 media server by any chance?23:24
darthanubislong time ago23:24
Duggydarthhanubis was that in response to me?23:24
darthanubisits inferior and seems like development stopped23:24
kostkoncem_, if you mean replace the word, https://docs.python.org/2.7/library/stdtypes.html#str.replace23:24
nogoodnamesleftI have some questions about LVM. First, the LVM installer wants to use the entire drive, erasing other operating systems. Is there any way to work around this?23:24
Duggydarthanubis - did you get it to work?23:25
Tundrawhat's the best way to install gnome shell?23:25
Duggydarthanubis, may I PM you?23:25
darthanubisinstall gnome-shell23:25
k1lTundra: use ubuntu gnome editon or install "gnome-shell"23:25
cem_i want to find that word and then delete that line and put new text at same line23:25
darthanubisI'd use the gnome edition23:26
RNevillewhat to use pastebin, what is best way to get error message to post automatically to pastebin?23:26
Tundrak1l:darthanubis, thanks fellas23:26
k1l!pastebinit | RNeville23:26
ubottuRNeville: pastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com23:26
RNevillethx bot ubottu23:28
kostkoncem_, use str.find()23:28
nogoodnamesleftHow do I install with LVM alongside Windows?23:29
daftykinsi don't think LVM is for you23:32
nogoodnamesleftdaftykins: I need full disk encryption on a dual boot machine. Would you therefore say putting a second drive in it would be a better idea?23:33
nogoodnamesleftdaftykins: Full disk enc for the Linux only23:33
daftykinspartial disk encryption ;)23:33
nogoodnamesleftdaftykins: What if it was a laptop with only a single drive?23:34
daftykinswell i kinda laugh at encryption in general so, i'm not the best to ask23:34
Cukenwhat partition table should I use for LVM disks that are 3tb?23:35
RNevillek1l http://paste.ubuntu.com/10891656/23:36
nogoodnamesleftWith 2 drives I could just use the installer. With a single drive I'd have to setup the lvm manually and it looks to be a pain. -Lots- of docs!23:36
k1lRNeville: :/23:37
k1lRNeville: "dpkg -l | grep linux-image | pastebinit23:37
k1lRNeville: dont use dpkg to remove.23:37

Tinkereri have put a Live Ubuntu 15.04 on a USB stick today23:47
Tinkereri used UUI to make this baby23:48
daftykinsUUI works fine in my experience23:48

Tinkereri chose to have a 4 GB permanent file23:49
Tinkererso that whenever i restart the live session, I don't lose the settings, my custom desktop wallpaper and so on23:50
Tinkererthen i did something that totally broke my live session23:51
Tinkereri installed proprietary drivers for intel.microcode (or something like that)23:52
Tinkereri restarted my live session and now when i choose "Try Ubuntu without installing" I get a kernel panic text all over my screen and am doomed23:53
daftykinsoh persistence.23:53
daftykinsattempting to install anything else for intel graphics is a colossal waste of time23:54
Tinkereryes, persistence file, not permanent23:54
Tinkerercan you like help me to get back to the live session but without the use of the proprietary drivers?23:55
Tinkererlike in a secure mode of a sort23:55
daftykinstry pressing 'e' to edit the 'try ubuntu' then change 'quiet splash' for 'text' , then once it boots up purge whatever packages you installed / undo whatever command you ran23:56
daftykinsTinkerer: i replied.23:57
Tinkereri don't know what was the package name for the proprietary driver i installed23:57
Tinkereri installed it via the GUI23:58
daftykinsyou could just wipe your drive and start again23:58
