netgeari updated manually it says the name of the monitor and stuff but i dont know what i did to make it stop working, possibly software unrelated to graphics.00:00
daftykinshave you at any point removed the mains power cable from the monitor?00:01
netgeari feel ok if on board doesn't mean it may break the i7 itself this is my first new computer since 11 years heh00:01
netgearonly after it stopped working, i moved it to a new comp to test monitor ect...00:01
daftykinsdid a different monitor have the same issue over DVI?00:02
netgearbut actually i think it only skipped bios until i did remove power... may be on to something but it was skipping bios first00:02
netgearthat comp has vga xp box very old :(00:03
daftykinsdo those machines have stickers on to prevent you opening them?00:04
netgearseems odd that it was only skipping bios i removed monitor power then it would not load at all, may be a on to something.00:04
netgeari opened it freely00:04
netgearsuprised since they claim a year support00:04
netgearwant to add a coolmaster glad i did not just in case something else goes wrong. heh00:05
daftykinswouldn't hurt to plug in with VGA, enter the EFI and load defaults for a test00:06
netgearEFI? sorry00:07
daftykinsthen power off, plug DVI in instead and try again00:07
daftykinsEFI setup = BIOS setup00:07
netgearok cool anything is worth a try thanks00:07
netgeari did change fast booting in bios only time i went into it because i read someone having similar issue, no help tho00:07
daftykinsyou're kinda suffering from an issue we call verbal diarrhoea right now00:08
daftykinsonly it's coming through your fingers :)00:08
netgearim not sober sorry i meant i went into bios one time and removed fast booting feature because someone online said it could cause the bios skipping issue00:09
netgeari appreciate your help to the community :)00:10

Hanz_ZimmerHello, I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 15.04 with three monitors. My graphics card is a GTX 760 and 2 monitors are connected via DVI and the third is connected via an HDMI-DVI adapter. When I first installed Ubuntu, only the second DVI montior and the HDMI monitor were detected. I added the repository and installed the newest available driver, Nvidia-349 and restarted. Now, all three monitors are detected. But the first DVI monito01:08
daftykins"but the first DVI monito..." ?01:08
Hanz_Zimmer... But the first DVI monitor won't go above 1360x768.01:09
Hanz_Zimmersorry, guess my client cut it off01:09
daftykinsnah it's a server limit i think01:09
Hanz_ZimmerI've tried using xrandr, but after adding my desired resolution it just says invalid paramater when trying to switch to it01:10
daftykinswhat did your command look like?01:10
daftykinsdoes /var/log/Xorg.0.log give any clues?01:10
daftykinsobelix__: where's Asterix?01:11
netgeargood night room thx again daftykins01:11
daftykinsdid you try it?01:11
obelix__Im not sure. My eyes have become pretty bad, I dont see so small things any more01:11
netgearthe wire? going to shut down and try tonight :)01:11
daftykinsobelix__: :D01:11
netgearor the bios?01:11
daftykinsnetgear: yeah the EFI defaults load01:11
netgearnever worked in the bios i have to look around01:12
daftykinswell you'd have to set it over VGA yeah01:12
netgeari will maybe will wait for system76 to answer i just noted all you told me in gnote tho :)01:12
netgearthe bios actually lets you move around via mouse seems nice compared to the old days01:13
obelix__Im new to this IRC thing, is there anyone who would be willing to answer me some things in private chat?01:13
Hanz_ZimmerThis was my command: xrandr --addmode DVI-I-1 1920x1080_60.0001:13
ubottuPlease ask your questions in the channel so that other people can help you, benefit from your questions and answers, and ensure that you're not getting bad advice.01:13
daftykinsHanz_Zimmer: hmm that interface name looks wrong01:13
hellhoundCan someone assist me with sleep/suspend mode.  I have 14.10 installed and sleep/suspend will only work the first time the computer is booted up.  after that first sleep/suspend it will not do it again even through the command prompt until I restart.01:14
Hanz_ZimmerHere is a copy of the output of xrandr. Which gave me the name of the interface01:14
linuxmintHello, I was told an IcedTea error on my Firefox browser is an Ubuntu issue. Is that right and could someone help me? http://dpaste.com/01C5JB801:15
daftykinsHanz_Zimmer: hrmm perhaps it's a card limitation01:16
obelix__How many of You know elementary os(thats built on ubuntu)01:16
ubottuElementary OS is an Ubuntu derivative which is supported in their IRC channel #elementary on irc.freenode.net - http://elementaryos.org/ for more information on this distribution.01:16
daftykinsHanz_Zimmer: it obviously doesn't think that display can do anything higher - weird for DDC to be wrong on a digital connection, so i think it's a restriction01:17
obelix__Thank You01:17
Hanz_ZimmerThe Gigabyte GTX can support up to 4 monitors though?01:18
Hanz_ZimmerGigabyte GTX 760*01:18
daftykinswith at least one DP in the mix i'd expect01:18
daftykinsHanz_Zimmer: you tried Windows to see if it's capable?01:18
Hanz_ZimmerNo I haven't. I suspect it's not the issue though because when I disconnect the problematic monitor, and connect the other two monitors by DVI and a third TV by hdmi, all three work at 1920x108001:20
daftykinsoooooh the monitor is acting up01:20
daftykinsok yeah, its' DDC must be read wrong01:20
daftykinsdisplay data channel, it telling its' information over the cable of what it's capable of01:21
JFlashI'm getting this error Cannot run program "/home/jay/sdks/flex_14_1/lib/android/bin/adb": error=2, No such file or director01:21
daftykinsEDID info fetching basically01:21
daftykinsJFlash: there's no file of that name :) pretty self explanatory01:21
JFlashdaftykins, the file adb.exe does exist there01:21
daftykins.exe ? that's a Windows executable01:21
Hanz_ZimmerSo is there any way I can override DDC?01:22
daftykinsHanz_Zimmer: well xrandr would've been the way, but it seems it refuses to even try01:22
Hanz_ZimmerAny suggestions on how I can proceed from here?01:23
JFlashdaftykins, yes its an .exe01:23
daftykinsJFlash: and why are you trying to use an adb executable on a Linux system?01:23
JFlashdaftykins, compile a apk version of my app01:24
daftykinsHanz_Zimmer: nah not really :S when it's the only display natively on DVI, i take it it runs 1920x1080 fine?01:24
JFlashdaftykins, using intellij IDE01:24
daftykinsJFlash: you realise you can't run a Windows .exe on Linux without Wine right?01:24
JFlashdaftykins, and Apache flex SDK01:24
daftykinsit says "adb" doesn't exist because "adb.exe" != "adb"01:24
JFlashdaftykins, I do have wine installed and properly configured01:25
Ben64JFlash: and adb.exe is not what you want01:25
daftykinsright but it doesn't know how to call that via wine because it knows that's ridiculous01:25
Ben64because thats for windows, this is linux, and adb doesn't have anything to do with compiling for android01:25
JFlashdaftykins, makes sense but where I find out how to change this path?01:25
daftykinsyou're going about your task completely wrong01:25
Hanz_ZimmerWell, just unplugging didn't give me any more resolution options. I'll restart01:25
JFlashthis is an error that INtellij is throwing at me01:26
JFlashI havent configured this path by myself01:26
Ben64look at the error01:26
Ben64"No such file or directory"01:26
JFlashBen64, I've heard that you can get such errors even when the file does exist01:27
Ben64does it exist?01:27
JFlashBen64, related to 32 binaries on 64bit oses01:27
daftykinsJFlash: run this: "file /home/jay/sdks/flex_14_1/lib/android/bin/adb"01:28
JFlashok nm. I get it... its probably looking for the wrong file, not a .exe01:28
daftykinsnow you get it01:28
JFlashdaftykins, wil try01:28
daftykinsit'll tell you "there's no file with that name"01:28
JFlashso, I run the command on the terminal01:29
daftykinswell you don't hum it :)01:29
JFlashas you say without exe it cannot find it01:30
daftykinsmmhmm, because it doesn't exist01:30
JFlashnp, will try to find where to change it thanks01:30
daftykinsno, install adb and then symlink it there01:30
daftykinsyou REALLY can't use a .exe01:30
JFlashdaftykins, already installed adb , however INtelij will not use default adb01:31
Hanz_ZimmerWhen I tried booting with it being the only connected device it just booted to a blinking cursor01:31
Ben64yeah, really need adb installed properly01:31
JFlashdaftykins, it will call wherever is on that directory01:31
JFlashdaftykins, adb itself runs well on the command line01:31
JFlasherm.. terminal01:31
JFlashsym sinking01:32
JFlashthat's an awesome idea01:32
JFlashsorry, typo01:32
* JFlash goes find out how to create symlinks01:33
Ben64man ln01:33
daftykinsln -s /path/here /another/path/there01:33
JFlashbut how do i find out where adb is installed01:33
Ben64which adb01:33
explodescan i just. use. kernel 4?01:34
Ben64explodes: sure, but its not supported here01:34
farfhi all01:41
farfi'm having trouble setting a default browser, i've tried everything obvious (update-alternatives and the control panel setting)01:41
farfbut when the terminal launches a url is always asks for a default browser01:42
farfand every time i reboot chromium forgets i set it as default01:42
daftykinsseen this one?01:42
daftykinsit has a few methods01:42
farfi'll try thanks01:43
`hypermist`Anyone here use ubuntu touch ?01:46
ubottuInformation about the Ubuntu Touch platform for Phone and Tablet is available here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch . Support and discussion in #ubuntu-touch01:46
farfdaftykins: it says sudo update-alternatives --config www-browser01:46
farfi mean, i don't have www-browser01:46
daftykins*shrug* only linked it, don't understand it i'm afraid01:47
`hypermist`oh thanks daftykins xD01:47
OerHeksfarf, did you perform that command? you should get that menu.01:49
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience01:51
ubottuDon't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/01:51
daftykinsintrnl: stop that01:52
JFlashguys, here's what solved my problem01:59
daftykinsnot trying to use Windows executables on Linux \o/01:59
JFlashsince the framework was trying to call all the .exes without an using a file extension, I created a symlink for each .exe02:00
JFlashnow I'm happy camper and I can export my Android application and collec the money on the bank tomorrow02:00
JFlashthanks guys02:00

guest81238probably is02:31
guest81238either grub or master boot record02:31
guest81238would completly reinstalling grub fix the issue of no operating systems to select02:31
guest81238because i know that they exist and can be booted from because i can access them from the live distro i am using now02:31
guest81238the files are there02:32
guest81238on different partitions02:32
guest81238im thinking reinstalling grub completly will solve problem02:33

Hanz_ZimmerI recently bought a GTX 760 because I was fed up with the driver support for my AMD card. I installed the 760 and restarted my computer and reinstalled Ubuntu 15.04.02:48
Hanz_ZimmerCurrently, it's hooked up to three separate monitors. The first two monitors are connected to the DVI ports and the third monitor is connected through the HDMI port via a DVI adapter.02:48
Hanz_ZimmerOn the first boot, the monitor connected to my first DVI port displayed all of the POST, the GRUB, and the booting stages.02:48
Hanz_ZimmerImmediately after the login screen loaded, the first DVI monitor turned off, and the two other monitors turned on. So I ran apt-get update && upgrade and rebooted.02:48
Hanz_ZimmerNothing was fixed so I switched to the NVIDIA driver rather than the Nouvea driver in Additional Drivers. After rebooting, I the third monitor came on but I couldn't change the resolution past 800x600.02:48
Hanz_ZimmerSo I downloaded the 346.59 64 bit driver and switched over to my virtual terminal and stopped the lightdm service.02:48
Hanz_ZimmerI installed the driver, rebooted, and then after rebooting the third monitor was still detected but I couldn't increase teh resolution past 800x60002:48
Hanz_ZimmerI've tried both Ubuntu 14.04 and 15.04. I've also tried using the 340, 340-updates, 346, 346-updates, and nvidia-current drivers.02:48
Hanz_ZimmerAll yield the same results. Except one of them, I can't remember which, allowed me to increase my resolution to 1366x76802:48
Hanz_ZimmerI've also tried using xrandr, but it just says that my parameters aren't accurate though I'm pretty sure I followed hte steps correctly02:48

greenrideAfter a recent Ubuntu update, my second monitor no longer connects to my laptop. Furthermore, dmesg reveals that unplugging/re-plugging my hdmi cable has no effect. I know this monitor still works since it works with a Mac, and I know that it once worked with Ubuntu. The only thing I can guess is that it's a kernel upgrade that borked things. Any suggestions?03:28

zykotick9ryan_46: <sidenote> you use the DM to select another DE (Desktop Environment) or WM (Window Manager) ... ;)03:34
emanuelty all trying now03:36
ryan_46emanuel: Have you used Openbox before? It doesn't allow you to miminize windows. Fluxbox does.03:36
* zykotick9 really? i find that hard to believe... openbox had a lot more features as i remember it... but fbox was lighter!03:37
ryan_46zykotick9: Yeah I used DM instead of wm as I should have.03:37
zykotick9ryan_46: ;)03:37
RakkoWhere are all the places where a system could be set to swap the ctrl and caps lock keys? I did it on mine, long ago, and now I can't find it. I don't seem to have anything calling xkbset in my dot files, and I don't have any ~/.xkb* files; and I can't find the setting at all in Unity settings.03:38
RakkoI also don't see anything Xkb-related globally in /etc03:39
RakkoI also don't have any evidence of xmodmap usage03:39
zykotick9Rakko: in debian i use /etc/default/keyboard with ' XKBOPTIONS="caps:swapescape" ' to swap it in both xorg & console, but i DON'T know if it'll work in ubuntu :|03:40
Rakkooh, yup. that's in mine.03:41
zykotick9Rakko: sorry you where swapping ctrl & caps!  salt to taste...03:41
Rakkoso it does work in ubuntu03:41
Rakkoclose enough :)03:41
Rakkowhy are you in #ubuntu?03:42
emanuelOk I switched managers and this seems faster but I lost my menu bar on the left. How do I get it in Openbox?03:42
ryan_46emanuel: Hi. Any luck?03:42
zykotick9Rakko: i used ubuntu from 7.10 -> 10.04 ...  i really liked #ubuntu for a long time...03:42
ryan_46emanuel: In openbox you have to use terminal to start apps03:43
RakkoI used debian for a very long time. I didn't really have any reason to switch to Ubu other than that it seemed like most of the Linux community was gravitating there03:43
Rakkobut I just recently installed wheezy on my phone :)03:43
zykotick9Rakko: boo.  but i know exactly where you're coming from!  </OT i'll stop ;)>03:44
ryan_46emanuel: If you install Fluxbox you can right click and get an applications menu.03:44
greenrideI'm having trouble getting a 2nd monitor to connect to my laptop. It is not recognized by system settings nor does the desktop extend to the 2nd monitor. This monitor previously connected to Ubuntu but may have stopped connecting after an update of packages.03:44
emanuelryan_46, ok. How do I launch software manager so I can get fluxbox and try it?03:44
Shed-34046How do i partition my other HDD for the efi partition? I have ubuntu installed on the 145GB HDD03:45
ryan_46emanuel: Are you on openbox?03:46
emanuelryan_46, yes I am on openbox03:47
Rakkoah, box window managers... my fav is openbox too03:47
Rakkofor a while I ran bbLean on windows xp on a very old laptop. it was nice!03:47
ryan_46emanuel: You can open a terminal and sudo apt-get install Fluxbox.03:47
Rakkoit really felt more like a unix-type UI, and it was fast and easily (and endlessly) configured03:47
emanuelryan_46, thanks will try03:48
ryan_46emanuel: except fluxbox without the capital F my bad.03:49
zykotick9Rakko: cde is what i think unix-type UI pre-gnu/linux https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Desktop_Environment <- it was terrible IMO!03:51
Rakkozykotick9: oh, yeah, I didn't mean that; although I must admit that in my kde days, I would sometimes switch for weeks at a time to the sun cde color scheme and GUI theme03:53
RakkoI found it soothing, and I like retro stuff (even if I never got to use the stuff that served as impetus for it)03:53
zykotick9Rakko: ;) that theme, is a LOT different from actually running cde03:53
RakkoI suppose03:53
zykotick9cde itself is not "soothing" ;)03:53
RakkoI can't believe they used that bottom-of-the-screen drawer thing03:54
zykotick9^ cde was actually freed a while ago, is it in ubuntu?  "apt-cache search cde" anyone?03:54
* zykotick9 could check packages.ubuntu.com he suspects... to find out it's not there :p03:55
emanuelOk, it looks good. Much faster.  Just have to figure out how to launch calibre now and software updates03:55
Rakkowhat I'd love is to run sunwindows03:56
Rakkoopenwindows I mean03:56
Rakkothe one with NeWS support, though03:56

hellyeahi plug headphone i still heard the sound from computer speaker03:59
hellyeahwhat could be the problem?04:00
Rakkonote: CDEpack (Code, Data, and Environment packaging) is a tool that automatically packages up everything required to execute a Linux command on another computer without any installation or configuration.04:00
emanuelryan_46,  This is running so much better but now calibre can't find my media files that are on an external drive. I rebooted and then chose the new WM. I'm confused why thats failing now04:00
Shed-34046Guys help me :/04:00
Shed-34046How do i partition my drive for UEFI when installation of ubuntu?04:00
ryan_46emanuel:  Also it is easy to launch a file manager to go usr share applications and be able to launch any app. However using the nautilus file manager kills the session. So I install and use thunar.04:00
zykotick9Bashing-om: wait a second!  on debian i get "cde - package everything required to execute a Linux command on another computer" <- i don't think that's Common Desktop Environment!04:01
Bashing-omzykotick9: Humm . .. lemme look again . one tic .04:01
lickalottdaftykins, thanks for checking!04:01
hellyeahany help04:02
ryan_46emanuel: Don't know about calibre, sorry.04:02
emanuelryan_46, funny you say that. I started nautalis before yiur post and it killed my session too. How can I get flux back?04:03
RakkoShed-34046: did you google it? (I don't know anything about UEFI with Linux, but I'm guessing the info's out there)04:03
Shed-34046I need some help to partition my drive for my computer's UEFI bios with install of ubuntu.. I mean it would probably be harder for me to break ubuntu like i keep doing with windows xD04:03
Shed-34046rakko yea but i don't understand it well.. :(04:03
Rakkohow do you break windows?04:03
ryan_46emanuel: You have to log out. Install thunar.04:03
Shed-34046rakko Messing with the Registry.04:03
emanuelRakko, with a ball?04:04
RakkoShed-34046: don't do that. :)04:04
Shed-34046Rakko is ubuntu a bit harder to break :P04:04
RakkoI'm not sure that's true04:04
Bashing-omzykotick9: Recon it it s by-gone era .. only other I see is " cdebconf - Debian Configuration Management System (C-implementation) " ; Not what is under discussion .04:04
Rakkoonce you get into compulsively customizing it... things are going to break04:04
bojanHi i want a help that my /boot is having lot of versions...How to clear that and also i want two versions for backup if my curren5t version gets in to any problem??04:05
[Steven_M]Hi all :)04:05
Rakkohi [Steven_M]04:05
zykotick9Bashing-om: trust me, it's no loss ;)04:05
cfhowlettbojan, old kernels can usually be removed with sudo apt-get autoremove04:05
Shed-34046Rakko all i would use ubuntu for is chrome, flash player games, and office :)04:05
Rakkoopen/libre office?04:05
bojancfhowlett:It is not removing if i give apt-get autoremove04:06
Shed-34046Does it matter? As long as it gets the job done04:06
Bashing-ombojan: Release 14.04 + ?? then try terminal command ' sudo apt-get autoremove ' . This should remove old kernels also .04:06
LadyAlissaQuick question - When on Ubuntu 15.04, how can I set it up so that the 'super' key takes effect instantly? I'm having to hold it down for about 5 seconds before I can press a number key.04:06
RakkoShed-34046: well I mean you're not going to run (native) MS Office. Probably Office 365 in CHrome would work, though.04:06

RakkoI have that problem too, bojan04:08
Rakkoit's annoying even having /boot as a separate partition04:08
bojanRakko:you want??04:08
Bashing-ombojan: 12,04 ya got to remove with a sequence similar ' sudo apt-get --purge remove linux-image-3.2.0-31-generic linux-image-3.2.0-30-generic linux-image-3.2.0-29-generic ' for each kernel installed and as well the header files . Some find synaptic easier to use.04:09
function9xwhat can I use to defrag my external usb hdd?04:09
bojanRakko:yes there is an option to purge all the versions without current running version...But if there is any problem exists in current version then we dont have any other option apart from formatting and reinstalling04:10
Bashing-ombojan: Better info from : ' dpkg -l | grep linux- ' and also make sure of what kernel is booting : 'uname -r' // do not want to take a chance on removing the booting kernel .04:13
bojanBashing-om: http://paste.ubuntu.com/10967772/ please check this04:13

bojanBashing-om:got any idea on how to remove that??04:22
[Steven_M]is there an ubuntu security channel?04:23
Bashing-ombojan: ' sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.13.0-{32,45,46,48}-generic ;  sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-3.13.0-{32,45,46,48} ;  sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-3.13.0-{32,45,46,48}-generic . should work .04:25

emanuelryan_46  even changing the WM my system is running slow when the hd is active. I wonder if putting the os on a flash drive would help04:30

=== sleepypc is now known as `hypermist`
Bashing-ombojan: All I expect to happen is to remove those old kernels ( images and headers) . Then we see if any config files remain , do the dpkg -l | grep linux- aonce more .04:32

jo_os_im really sad using new ubuntu version :(05:42
niterojo_os_, LXLE is my current favorite, before that, mint was.05:42
niterotbh ubuntu is prob my least favorite linux distro (besides puppy linux)05:42
jo_os_configure all day my desktop and now reboot and ... my desktop have cero changes05:43
DarrenGaoIt is my first time to hear LXLE distro,nitero05:43
niteroDarrenGao, it's based on the LXDE, but it comes with a lot of cool software.05:43
jo_os_DarrenGao: mee to05:43
DarrenGaolet me google it right now05:43
niteroi like it because it's the fastest and most stable OS i've tried, not including Arch.05:44
niteroor maybe i should say it's on par with all the other "fastest and stablest" linux distros, but it also comes with a lot of cool software05:44
jo_os_what about de05:44
DarrenGaoso have you ever tried debian, nitero05:44
niteroit's kind of like Knoppix05:44
niteroDarrenGao, i have tried to install Debian several times.  I got it installed once when I was a linux-noob, and I didn't know much about linux, and didn't like how old it looked.  But i remember i liked the space wallpapers that changed every hour, that was awesome.  SInce then i haven't been able to successfully install it.  =\05:45
jo_os_what sistem do u recommend me to use05:45
ammeDarrenGao: i installed the latest ubunto to my netbook, samsung 535U3C. Everything works fin, but many times, (most of the time if i have to say) it wont boot. after the purple sceer its frozen05:45
jo_os_i mean distrib05:45
ammein recovery mod its always work but of course slow and shiti resolution05:45
niteroi recommend LXLE, it's pretty great.05:46
niterodoesn't look like it gets much development though, so it might be surpassed by something else05:46
niterohonestly, i think you should try everything and pick what you like best.05:46
jo_os_what about elementary05:46
niteroi haven't tried it05:46
niterobut with virtualbox trying out distros is easy.05:47
VyomSo I made this startup script, that tries to launch items on boot. But the terminal seems to wait to launch another program, until I close the previous one. How do I make all applications run in background at once? http://paste.ubuntu.com/10968082/05:47
DarrenGaovbox is pretty good to use05:47
jo_os_mint is a good alternative?05:47
niteromint is good for windows migrators i think05:47
niterobut it's not the most stable05:48
niteroi liked it for a long time, but compared to other distros, it actually has bugs and instability issues05:48
niteroi don't have enough experience with debian to judge.05:48
jo_os_ubunto is develop this version...05:49
DarrenGaoI began to use debian two years ago, which debian 6.05:49

Corvus`Hey. What is the proper way to restore iptables/netfilter setting on boot?09:08
Corvus`I figured I need iptables-persistent, so I installed it, and it kinda works, but here is what it says when I try to save the settings. https://bpaste.net/raw/b308b826f50309:09
Corvus`and for some reason it is split into netfilter-persistent and iptables-persistent. Could someone explain what is the difference?09:10

MonkeyDust!ssd | JustAnUser start here09:17
ubottuJustAnUser start here: Many Solid State Drives support TRIM, which allows the drive to do garbage collection and improves performance. Ubuntu 14.04 activates it by default. For older versions, see http://askubuntu.com/a/19480 for information on activating it.09:17
JustAnUsersince it is activated by default, I do not need do anything else right?09:18

VexenaIf I have a teamspeak server and created a user with disabled login that's called teamspeak and chowned the whole directory /home/teamspeak to the "teamspeak" user that has no login enabled and then use sudo service teamspeak3 start (to start the init script). Would this still run as root? Or does it run with the teamspeak user in this case10:02
fes235Vexena: if you use sudo -u teamspeak it runs as the teamspeak user10:05

MonkeyDustcharlesW  deluge is also nice10:37
charlesWJust curious, but why not just zip it up or tar it...Would make things easier, in my opinion of course.10:38
jibe211zip and tar is compression, torrent is a way to stream the data10:39
azizLIGHTcharlesW: if its linux software, and they talk about ubuntu, they probbaly have ppas10:39
charlesWI know, just seems like a lot to go through10:40
azizLIGHTif not, they probably have deb files you can easily install software with in ubuntu software center10:40
jibe211torrent is just addressing info to send and recieve data packets in the file10:40
azizLIGHTtorrents probably more suited for big programs and big files10:40
jibe211yes like he said, if you cant use the ubuntu software center, your best hope is windows emulation, if trying to run non linux software10:41
azizLIGHTyou probably want to look for ppas charlesW, add them to your repos, and apt-get install them. easy peasy done, and you get updates when you run apt-get upgrade10:41

autonomoidErc1, so when I login to Ubuntu do it enter the passphrase automaticallly to decrypt the home directory?15:04
=== pureness is now known as noteness
EriC^^autonomoid: i think when you login it decrypts the home dir, unless you're using full disk encryption then you'd need the passphrase after it boots15:05
EriC^^autonomoid: it uses the passphrase to decrypt it though i think, you could boot a live usb and decrypt it manually using the passphrase15:06
genkawho is  user/sbin/console-kit-daemon -no-daemon15:06
autonomoidThe reason I ask is because I just upgraded an old box from 10.04 to 12.04 and it prompted me to enter an encryption passphrase. I haven't found an detailed description of what it's used for.15:06
EriC^^autonomoid: is only your home dir encrypted or the whole installation?15:07
EriC^^usually do you enter your passphrase when you boot?15:07
SchrodingersScatalteregoa: it uses duplicity as a backend right?  Doesn't look promising from a quick search of duplicity usenet.  Could you make a backup to a local directory then upload those using whatever news tool you can automate?15:08
autonomoidI'm no expert but from what I've read its just the home dir. FDE wasn't available in earlier releases.15:08
ioriaGuest80965, type in terminal :   /usr/bin/light-locker-settings15:08

ActionParsnipautonomoid: is this a desktop system?15:08
alteregoayep backup it and compress it with rar or somthing using 30% redundancy with encryption15:08
ActionParsnipautonomoid: then why are you using encryptfs?15:09
alteregoaat the end of any backup it creates a file with the nzb's you can put on dropbox or something15:09
autonomoidAll I did was take the existing 10.04 desktop installation and upgrade to 12.04 desktop. There was never any mention of using encryptfs15:09
ActionParsnipautonomoid: I see. Seems weird it is a factor then...15:10

colligencehello. i have the following problem: on my arch pc i only have to type "systemd shutdown" to shutdown my system without root previleges. how could i do this in ubuntu WITHOUT modifying the suders file?15:11
MonkeyDustcolligence  arch? this is ubuntu support15:11
Guest80965i can not understand when i type /usr/bin/light-locker-settings i got bash: /usr/bin/light-locker-settings: No such file or directory15:12
ActionParsnipcolligence: set the sticky bit on the shutdown binary. It will run as root no matter who runs it....  Anyone15:12
alteregoafirst duplicity encrypts the entire stuff with a passphrase and then rar. should be safe enough, (256bit aes)15:12
colligenceMonkeyDust: i know. i said how i did it on arch, and i want to know how it works on ubuntu.15:12
colligenceActionParsnip: ok. thanks15:13
ioriaGuest80965, last attempt :    locate light-locker-settings15:13
SchrodingersScatalteregoa: are you saying this is a script that already exists?  idk why you would need to rar them, but it's your freedom.15:13
ActionParsnipcolligence: https://www.howtoforge.com/linux_setting_suid_sgid_bits15:13
alteregoabecause of the redundancy15:13
ActionParsnipcolligence: sorry, setuid is what you want.15:14

ankkwhen i click somewhere on terminal to copy and paste, it selects a random number of lines immediately and while i'm holding to select text, it doesn't track my mouse pointer15:16
ankkwhat is the problem?15:16
autonomoidActionParsnip, What is slightly misleading is that the dialogue window saying "Record your encryption passphrase", which to me suggests entering a passphrase not "writing it down"15:16
notenessgenka: sudo apt-get install build-essential15:16
notenessType that15:16
SchrodingersScatalteregoa: I think you want to use duplicity then, since it's cli, and then you can automate a bunch.  if you use either keys or a passphrase you can have that automated.15:16

julindiroia .. im sort of a noob on ubuntu stuff so16:48
ioriajulind you enable them again16:48
yellowdogI've got a mobo that supports 1600/1333 MHz DDR3. So, any DDR3 memory module won't do, but must be of one (or both) of those frequencies?16:49
julindioria the ppa? or redownload nvidia drivers?16:49
=== lazaro is now known as habanany
ioriajulind the ppa16:50
OerHeksyellowdog, maybe that module is dualchannel, better ask in ##hardware16:50
newlarkzzyellowdog: memory must match or they can't run a double speed.16:50
julindioria will this damn thing fix that dependency problem?16:51
ioriajulind according to the post,  yes16:51
julindioria fingers crossed16:51
yellowdogOerHeks I don't have a computer to register with (doing this on a toaster).. since my hardware is broken. Channel is ruled by some Nazi that require registering16:51
ioriajulind indeed16:51
newlarkzzyellowdog: not only will they run at the slower speed if not matching. It will defeat the ddr3 setup.16:52
yellowdognewlarkzz: thanks. By "matching", you mean the two modules: must be the same brand and all?16:52
julindioria ok shits done, now what?16:53
ioriajulind any errors ?16:54
julindioria no errors showed up thankfully16:54
julindioria says ppa purged successefully16:55
ioriajulind sudo apt-get update16:55
newlarkzzyellowdog: You can mix up different sizes, but it's not recommended. For example, a dual channel 2x2gb 1600mhz pair of sticks will be faster than 5gb 1600mhz of 2+2+1 sticks16:55
julindioria done16:56

cohnationhow do i reset my root password?19:25
k1lcohnation: ubuntu never had a root account. use sudo with the user password19:25
krismatrixHi...i have an ubuntu linux os on my laptop. I currently have full access as a super user (apparently)19:25
krismatrixHow do i set it up so that I am not using an account that is by default in super user mode?19:26
k1lkrismatrix: just create a new user and use that19:26
ioriaexcelsiora, did you put usb hdd on top of the list ?19:26
cyphawcohnation: sudo passwd root19:26
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo19:26
k1lcyphaw: cohnation dont do that19:26
OerHekscohnation, there is no root password19:27
krismatrix@k11...is that the only way. That is I need t create a new user account?19:27
krismatrixI can't set my current account to not be super user?19:27
OerHekskrismatrix, you can, but you will need an extra account to do sudo tasks.19:28
cyphawkrismatrix: take a look at /etc/sudoers, but be careful, if you remove your sudo rights without having access to a superuser19:28
MonkeyDustcohnation  the guest account is non-root19:29
krismatrixAh...so you are saying i should have a super user account AND a non-super user account....and as a good practice...always use non-super user account unless I really need to?19:29
krismatrixreally need to use super user account19:29
OerHekskrismatrix, that would be ultra safe yes19:29
itachifuck yeahh :P19:29
krismatrixIs that what you guys do?19:29
spenmennkrismatrix, it is not good to use a super user account for security reasons19:29
spenmenn(all the time)19:30
OerHekskrismatrix, if i would use ubuntu proffesionally, yes.19:30
krismatrixwhat are the benefits or safeties or securities of using a non super user account19:30
krismatrixand what can and cannot be done with a non-super account?19:31
cyphawkrismatrix: on debian and others, you have root and a normal user by default. On ubuntu and others, root has no password, so unusable unless you set one, and the default user has root rights through sudo19:31
ioriakrismatrix, when you are super-user not only you can  make typo and  ruin your system but all door are open19:32
cyphawI'd advise you not to remove your sudo rights on your default user19:32
krismatrixIf by root you mean sudo? Cause when I need to install...I always have to do > sudo apt-get <something>19:32
k1lkrismatrix: the standard setup is: you have on user account that can get super user permissions when using the command "sudo".19:32
krismatrixand then asks for password19:32
krismatrixwhich I enter and it installs19:32
brainwashkrismatrix: please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo before asking further questions19:32
k1lkrismatrix: so you have a "dumb" user account on everyday and have the admin mode if you use sudo19:32
excelsiorashould I select a bootable thing? shimx64.efi, grubx64.efi, MokManager.efi?19:33
excelsiorawe had to set up a password to enable this stuff19:33
k1lkrismatrix: with only one user without the sudo capability you cant manage your system anymore.19:33
krismatrixoh..ok...i think i am in admin mode all the time.19:33
marianneok, second issue... friends laptop (HP) bootloader is hosed when he tried to resize a ubuntu partition. now it doesn't boot. Am I far off the mark thinking I can fix it with a ubuntu install disc (won't it recoginize the 2 OSs are installed?19:33
k1lkrismatrix: what makes you think that?19:33
krismatrixBecause I can use sudo on terminal all the time19:34
krismatrixIt just asks for a password...which I give and it does installations.19:34
spenmennyou can keep a rooted virtual machine if you really want to work in the root enviroment19:34
k1lkrismatrix: you can use sudo. it safes the password for some minutes (10 minutes iirc) before asking again19:34
=== mike_ is now known as Guest61197
OerHekskrismatrix, terminal had got a timer, so you can do multiple tasks with sudo without entering your password every time19:34
krismatrixoh..did not know about the temporary timer...but cool19:35
ioriamarianne i tried to resize from live ?19:35
cyphawkrismatrix: your user is not admin, if you type a command without sudo, it will follow your normal rights. But your user has sudo rights defined in /etc/sudoers, that allows it to perform action as root by using sudo. That's the default behaviour in ubuntu19:35
krismatrixSo how is that different from admin rights?19:36
marianneioria: I'm not sure exactly what he did19:36
k1lkrismatrix: that is "root rights" when you use sudo19:36
ioriamarianne well, i cannot do that19:36
=== x1_ is now known as jaley2
=== jaley2 is now known as jakey2
k1lkrismatrix: its just that you dont use the "root rights" for running the browser or irc or....., so you dont have the security issues there19:37
filenoxsomeone using Ubuntu 15.05 on a Macbook? I'm wondering if they improved support for multi touch gestures, can't find a thing about it..19:37
spenmennkrismatrix,sudo gives you the admin rights19:37
krismatrixok...but you guys are saying that I should go ahead and create a user account without sudo rights. Correct?19:37
k1lkrismatrix: think of it as a gun. sudo loads the gun. without sudo it is unloaded and safe for handling.19:37
marianneioria: I'm hoping if we put in the install disc, it will at least repair the partitions and fix GRUB... does that even sound doable on a ubuntu/win7 box?19:37
k1lkrismatrix: no19:38
ioriamarianne in any case if he erased grub, boot in recovery with net support and try boot-repair19:38
spenmennkrismatrix, no, that is for debian19:38
k1lkrismatrix: you already have that setup on a standard ubuntu19:38
krismatrixso you are saying i have the correct and sage setup?19:38
krismatrixsage = safe19:39
krismatrixok. that helps19:39
k1lkrismatrix: that is the standard ubuntu setup. so if you didnt change that its ok.19:39
excelsioraso I set up shim and don't worry about grub?19:39
marianneioria: that's the plan... i haven't done much with duel boots and was wondering if i was on the right track19:39
krismatrixA friend suggest that I was using ubuntu in an unsafe method...so I was asking.19:39
ioriamarianne i hope it  is19:40
k1lkrismatrix: the problem that some ubuntu users have is that they start to run everything with sudo. which spoils that safe setup then.19:40
spenmennkrismatrix, if you really want a root eviroment all the time, you should keep a virtual machine with a root account19:40
krismatrixI don't think I need a root environment all the time. I am trying to keep my system secure in a smart way. I do run all installs using sudo...other wise I see no reason to do sudo19:41
spenmennstay safe19:42
k1lkrismatrix: that is fine. you need sudo to install stuff since that is a system-wide task19:42
MonkeyDustkrismatrix  tip: use vagrant/vbox if you need a safe environment, apart from your own working machine http://www.vagrantbox.es/ and http://docs.vagrantup.com/v2/getting-started/index.html19:47

hikenbootif i use the lvcreate with the -m option it creates a mirror of a logical volume, what about in the case where an original with data exists, how do you specify which is the source disk of the mirror and which is the destination of the mirror and would it be bootable once put in another system?22:43
hikenbootthat is...would the mirror be bootable when put into an identical system?22:44

bekkssu - will not help you at all.23:29
bekksUse gksudo23:29
Free99why gksudo?23:29
bekksBecause neither su nor sudo cover graphical applications.23:30
Free99bekks, any lxde compatible things like gksu?23:30

FreezingColdhuh, why can't my user login via ssh? =\23:33
daftykinswhat happens23:33
FreezingColddaftykins: The user is just blocked. It's a VPS, root login by default23:35
FreezingColdobviously I'm turning that off.23:35
daftykinsdigitalocean huh?23:35
daftykinsso you created a user... then tried to SSH in as that user - and no go?23:35
daftykinsgive us some details... help me, to help you...23:35
FreezingColdOh. Oops.23:35
daftykinswhat specifically happens?23:36
FreezingColdlol, I put the key in root's account and not mine by mistake23:36
FreezingColdwell crap23:36
FreezingColdI locked myself out.23:36
daftykinsah well, seconds to nuke it and spin up a new one23:37
FreezingColddaftykins: I just attached the serial console23:38
daftykinsah right23:38

FreezingColdGot a killer headache.23:43
daftykinsFree99: no links here thanks23:43
Free99daftykins, k23:44
FreezingColdany ksplice users here btw?>23:44
tzanolohello. my ubuntu cannot access anymore a microsoft remote desktop.23:44
daftykinsi didn't think that was an Ubuntu thing23:44
daftykinstzanolo: using Remmina?23:45
Free99xfreerdp or remmina can do it23:45
FreezingColddaftykins: actually, it's one of the only systems that ksplice is offered for free.23:45
tzanolofrom others computers I can access, from my ubuntu simply does not work..23:45
daftykinso rly23:45
tzanoloremmina and the build in remote desktopo23:45
daftykinstzanolo: using what client?23:45
tzanoloremmina is the client23:45
daftykinsso what happens23:45
tzanoloi sudo remove remmina, and reinstall, and nothing happens23:45
FreezingColddaftykins: yeah, it looks sick.23:46
tzanoloi run in terminal, remina &23:46
daftykinstzanolo: that is not an issue connecting to an RDP host, that's a package management query...23:46
daftykinsyour explanation left a LOT to be desired.23:46
FreezingColdI wanted to install it, then I remembered I just bought a OpenVZ instance :p23:46
tzanoloI dont understand23:47
daftykinscarry on, what happens when you run it that way? (also what's wrong with the normal way)23:47
tzanoloi will try at terminal, remmina & and paste here the error23:48
daftykinsno don't paste here, use http://paste.ubuntu.com23:48
Free99tzanolo, try "apt-get install xfreerdp -y" then "xfreerdp -u <remote username> <remote server IP/DNS name>"23:49
Free99xfreerdp is the backend for remmina connecting to windows remote desktop, any error message you see there in terminal will tell you much more23:49
Free99unless, as daftykins suspects, you're having package manager problems23:50
tzanoloxffreerdpl cannot find package23:50
daftykinswell i more threw a dispute at being told step #1 was reinstalling remmina23:50
tzanoloi have reinstalled remmina and still doesnt works23:50
daftykins!info xfreerdp trusty23:51
ubottuPackage xfreerdp does not exist in trusty23:51
daftykinsi don't know what ubuntu version you're on mind you23:51
FreezingColddaftykins: why doesn't this work? curl --data 'poster=user1&syntax=text&content=test2' http://paste.ubuntu.com/23:51
daftykinssorry no idea.23:52
Bray90820 How would I add a script to my path23:52
Free99ubottu, what? I'm on trusty with it23:52
ubottuFree99: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)23:52
daftykinsFree99: then the package you have must come from a PPA23:53
daftykinseither that or the name is different23:53
Free99ah you're right daftykins, it "freerdp-x11"23:54
Free99but the command to run once installed is xfreerdp23:54
FreezingColdubottu: I think you're smart :)23:54
ubottuFreezingCold: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)23:54
FreezingColdaww, don't be so hard on yourself23:54

antivirtelhello! I'm running a 14.04 LTS, and I want to create an USB boot disk from 15.04... but the startup disk creator fails to create the bootloader, it just writes, that "Failed to install the bootloader." and I can just quit... what can I do now? it didn't boot, I've checked, and the MD5 is OK...23:57
Free99tzanolo, aha! There's your problem. I have this issue occascionally myself23:57
daftykinsantivirtel: open a terminal, plug the flash drive in, use "sudo dd if=/path/to/ubuntu.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=2M" where sdX = your flash drive23:57
Free99you need to go into ~/.freerdp/hosts or something like that and get rid of the old key for your machine23:57
tzanoloill try it now23:58
