daftykinswhat are you trying to set up?00:04
OerHekschown it to www-data i guess00:05
VanDerGrootwp-content/uploads perhaps?00:06
daftykinswell we can all guess :)00:06
daftykinskokut: ?00:08
aimnanowell i hosed that VM00:10
daftykinslucky they can be backed up!00:10
aimnanoso after i restore it from a backup, who knows how to resize a LUKS partition00:10
daftykinsnot me00:10
aimnanonot only that, it's BIOS, and i want to extend it over 2TB aka i have to convert it to GPT without breaking it?00:10
aimnanois this even possible?00:11
daftykinsonly a boot volume need be GPT over 2.xTB00:11
=== andrex is now known as andrex|off
aimnanowell it is a boot volume00:14
aimnanoit's basic ubuntu partition layout (with LVM)00:14
aimnano(and LUKS)00:14
aimnanoi think it's only 2: swap and root00:14
daftykinsright but a VM? so anything can be changed00:15
daftykinsanyway nm i don't do encryption00:15
Johnny_Linuxgood LUK00:15
guest211211ok so00:15
guest211211i installed the mini iso00:16
guest211211it asked me to remove my boot media, so i did, the system restarted00:16
guest211211and now im at a black screen with a white blinking cursor. should i reboot again or just wait more?00:16
daftykinshit enter a few times00:16
daftykinssee if anything becomes visible00:16
aimnanoit doesn't sound like it successfully installed GRUB00:16
aimnanodid you tell it not to?00:16
daftykinsthat'd be unlikely since the system would print a boot error message surely00:17
guest211211i told it to go ahead and install grub00:17
guest211211should i reboot?00:17
daftykinsno harm in trying00:17
daftykinsbut hit a few keys as i say00:17
guest211211rebooting jsut takes me to that same screen00:18
guest211211should i pop the usb back in?00:18
daftykinshold left shift as it boots00:18
daftykinssee if you get the GRUB menu00:18
daftykinsand you haven't replied about my suggestion to press keys?00:18
guest211211sorry, thought i did. i tried hitting a bunch of keys00:18
guest211211shift also didnt work00:19
daftykinsok try both shifts (one at a time) and also escape00:19
daftykinsas in repeatedly, rapidly press them00:19
linuxuz3rhow do i use libboost properly00:20
linuxuz3rplease help00:20
guest211211neither shift works, esc takes me to boot device00:20
guest211211im going to try reinstalling00:21
daftykinshit enter on the hard disk then hit escape again00:21
daftykinsno, you give up too easy00:21
daftykinsEriC^^: ^^00:21
guest211211ok hitting enter just takes it to the black screen with blinking cursor and then hitting esc from that point does nothing00:22
daftykinsno you have to do it quickly00:22
daftykinstry the shift keys again after powering off fully00:23
Ender_WigginHey hey. I'm having display issues with my 14.04. Did some fiddling around with xrandr and tried multiple drivers, but kept issues. Right now, if I use the current X.org nuevo driver (Nvidia GT 520), I get a blank screen after BIOS boot and have to reboot and select to launch Ubuntu from GRUB menu. When I switched to the latest Nvidia driver, I no longer have to boot twice, but both drivers lock the display resolution to 800x60000:26
Bashing-omguest211211: MBR booting grub looks for the shift key, UEFI looks for the escape key . press escape repeatedly as soon as the firmware screen clears . Maybe ?00:27
LeEarlhello guys00:27
Ender_WigginCurrently running Nvidia 331.113 from Additional Drivers00:27
LeEarlis it true the kde is made with qt and gnome is made with glide?00:28
LeEarland if so then how to make a pure x gui app?00:28
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: so right now you're in, but @ 800x600?00:30
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: what type of monitor and which kind of cable connection?00:30
Ender_WigginHey dafty =]00:30
Ender_WigginViewsonic 21" LCD DVI, 1680x1024 max res i believe00:31
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: sudo apt-get install pastebinit && pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log00:31
Hilikuswhat is the "quiet splash" option on grub's parameters?00:31
daftykins1680x1050 mmk00:31
daftykinsHilikus: suppress boot messages (quiet) and display splash screen (splash - via plymouth)00:31
guest211211hitting esc does bgring up the BOOT device screen. i can choose either one of the boot devices which just leads tot hat black screen00:31
Hilikusdaftykins: can i use spash without quiet?? it doesn't make much sense00:31
Ender_WigginIm currnetly using the Nvidia driver, still want a pastebin from Xorg.o.log?00:31
guest211211i think i can also enter bios (the usb is NOT plugged in currently)00:31
daftykinsHilikus: not since it'd be in the way of the messages i suspect :> why not just use GRUB at boot time and edit the boot parameters to try once00:32
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: yep00:32
Hilikusdaftykins: ah ok, will try that. thank you00:32
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: also if you would paste "lspci | pastebinit"00:32
daftykinsah yes failed to read EDID from display, common one that00:33
daftykinsare you using any form of cable adapter, or is it directly DVI to DVI?00:33
Ender_Wigginis it fixable?00:33
Ender_Wigginno adapter, DVI - DVI00:34
Bashing-omguest211211: What release did you install ? and with a desk top ? Maybe we can boot with the boot parameter "nomodeset" ??00:34
daftykinsweird. ok first up, power off the computer - pull the mains power supply cable to the LCD, let it stay off for a minute, reseat the cable and then power on the screen and reset it to factory defaults. then fire up the PC again and see if it changes00:35
guest211211its on a laptop00:35
guest211211i  cant even GET to grub though is the thing00:35
daftykinsguest211211: my message was to Ender_Wiggin00:36
guest211211got it00:36
guest211211hey hey00:38
guest211211I DID SOMETHING00:38
guest211211I THINK I GOT IT WORKING00:38
Bashing-omguest211211: Try; Boot in CCSM (legacy) mode , and as soon as the bios screen clears depress and hold the shift key . Do you now get grub boot menu ?/// Great ^^00:38
guest211211i plugged the usb in, hit enter, tried to enter the USB, mashed osme letters like what daftykins suggested, and im back at a login screen00:38
guest211211it says Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS Icarus ttyl (i named the computer Icarus during installation)00:38
guest211211ok so00:39
guest211211I think I might have not installed Ubuntu desktop? but i got ubuntu00:39
Bashing-omguest211211: OK, Thst is the minimal install right ? Now to install the aps you want to use ??00:39
guest211211im logged in and now its like, username@icarus:~$00:39
daftykinsnow you need a network connection00:40
daftykinspreferably wired00:40
guest211211if i go wired i wont be able to stay in contact with you00:40
daftykinswhy, one cable?00:40

EriC^^guest211211: great00:42
guest211211no, im on a desktop which is downstairs and the connection is UPSTAIRS00:42
daftykinsso go plug it in :)00:42
JinjaNinjaThis may be a noob question, but I seriously need to know. My laptop used to hold up to 7-8 hours of battery life (when I was running Windows 8), now my battery dies faster. Maybe there isn't a difference of battery lifetimes, maybe I'm just remembering wrong. Is there a way to increase battery life/ see if the battery is being used inefficiently?00:43
JinjaNinja(Running ubuntu)00:43
Johnny_Linuxel oh el00:43
EriC^^JinjaNinja: there's powertop00:43
daftykinsWindows will pretty much always give better battery life00:43
guest211211ok laptop is plugged in, what command00:43
EriC^^guest211211: which desktop would you like to install?00:44
EriC^^guest211211: i think the mini iso is supposed to ask that though?00:44
JinjaNinjaEriC^^: Not aware of it. What is that?00:44
daftykinsif i were you i'd "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" first00:45
EriC^^JinjaNinja: it's like top but for power i assume, never used it myself00:45
daftykinsbut bear in mind you likely won't have an IP from having plugged the network cable in after boot, so you might need to "sudo dhclient eth0" first00:45
daftykinsyeah it's intel's prog for pointing out what's waking up the CPU and so on00:45
guest211211ok, so "sudo dhclient eth0" and then ""sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"00:46
JinjaNinjaSee, my laptop only gets 5-6 hours of battery life now. That concerns me a bit. I'll be using my Laptop throughout college, and I LOVE Ubuntu. I'd like to see better battery lifetimes though.00:46
Ender_Wiggindaftykins ok reset to factory defaults. Still cant change resolution00:47
daftykinsok well it was worth a try00:47
Ender_Wigginany other solution suggestions?00:48
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: you can either look up how to pull an EDID on Windows or Ubuntu and then use it in a xorg.conf, or you can look up how to add a resolution with xrandr00:48
daftykins_or_ you can try different nvidia drivers :)00:48
daftykinsas i think you only mentioned 304 and 33100:48
=== tenach is now known as cptmashek
JinjaNinjaI know 5-6 hours is "Okay" But that's not an option for me, I love seeing my technology at it's peak battery lifetimes.00:48
daftykinsJinjaNinja: not gonna happen off Windows.00:49
Ender_Wiggindaftykins, yeah i tried all the drivers available from Additional Drivers00:49
Ender_WigginI attempted to add resolutions through Xrandr as well00:49
daftykinsto what end?00:49
JinjaNinjaI wonder if I could just get a stronger battery :P00:49
Ender_Wigginno effect, as far as i know00:49
Ender_Wigginis there a way to view the Xrandr resolutions?00:49
Ender_Wigginas in what's been added00:49
=== cptmashek is now known as tenach
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: well you need to add it then select it, right now i'm sure it has nothing above 800x600 - run "xrandr | pastebinit"00:50
Ender_Wiggini can try to readd the resolution, can ya link me to a guide?00:52
daftykinsno i can't, as we can both google :)00:52
daftykinsyou seem to be connected to DVI-1 now00:52
daftykinsand not DVI 000:52
Ender_Wigginshould I change that?00:53
Ender_WigginI never moved it before00:53
Ender_Wiggintheres only 1 DVI port on the monitor actually00:53
daftykinsthis is in relation to the card.00:53
=== Sax_ is now known as Knave
guest211211daftykins, did you see the order of commands i asked were ok?00:54
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: hrmm i'd look in nvidia-settings for any res adding, or see something like - http://sammart.in/2012/05/29/enabling-resolutions-in-ubuntu-12-04-lubuntu-12-04/00:55
daftykinsjust remember it's 1680x1050 - but boot Windows to confirm if available. or just look up the LCD model00:55
guest211211daftykins ok, so "sudo dhclient eth0" and then ""sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"00:56
Ender_Wiggini can confirm its 1680x1050 from manual and previous resolution set at that on this machine00:56
daftykinsdon't run the first bit just because, only run it if the latter doesn't work00:56
guest211211ok, gog it00:56
Bashing-omguest211211: Cjeck that networking is up after the 'dhcp' command ' ping -c3 ubuntu.com '. Then update .00:58
daftykinsthis guy is gonna be up and down stairs ;)00:58

Bashing-omdaftykins: Now that might make for a long night , huh ?00:59

ubottuMadBro nobody here is responsible for whatever woes you are facing: The main Ubuntu channels require that you speak in calm, polite English. For other languages, please visit https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList00:59
MadBroYes Ubuntu Gnome is responsible because it's their product and I just installed it and I am not able to update anything.01:00
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: is it one of these funny 144Hz displays ?01:00
Ender_Wiggindaftykins the manual says 60hz01:01
Ender_Wigginits an old monitor01:01
guest211211bashing-om ok so i should now go in and enter what command? "dhcp ping -c3 ubuntu.com01:01
daftykinsMadBro: no i'm saying don't bring your attitude here because no *user* in here is responsible.01:01
daftykinsoh it's MHz anyway01:01
guest211211i downloaded a ton of files i think, it said 0 files changed, removed, updated, downloaded or whatever but i saw LOTS Of lines of code that were like, HIT datacenter.us or something like that01:01
Ender_Wigginah sorry01:01
daftykinsguest211211: yes that's normal01:02
MadBro@daftykins Got you but I don't have an attitude, I'm pissed off at this problem I'm getting for no reason at all. I chose fulll disk encryption and it encrypted my swap partition so now it's causing me not to be able to update.01:02
MadBroI've never had this problem before until 15.0401:02
Ender_Wigginok so actually looks like it goes up to 1680x1050 85x 93.9hz01:02

Ender_WigginMadBro he really doesnt.01:03
guest211211MadBro I understand you're upset but getting mad's not going to solve anything, and pissing off the people here realllly isn't goingt to help you at all01:03
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: i don't know anymore than you about getting xrandr to accept that command, i'd read the man page or find another guide perhaps - dunno01:03

hghgHullo - trying to install lubuntu 14.04.2 and want disk encryption and disk-overwrite (of empty space). But get error message  :01:45
hghgAn unsafe swap space has been detected.  This is a fatal error since sensitive data could be written out to disk unencrypted. This would allow someone with access to the disk to recover parts of the encryption key or passphrase.  Please disable the swap space (e.g. by running swapoff) or configure an encrypted swap space and then run setup of encrypted volumes again. This program will now abort.01:45
hghgAny thoughts? More info : it is a MacBook with a broken optical drive, so the only way to install is via usb... but Macs are a bit finicky at times, so I have to do a live boot into the desktop and then from there select the <install lubuntu option>....01:45

daftykinsor create an encrypted swap, as it suggests01:48

Zerkalerkahey guys, I am stuck in a login loop, doing chown username:username .Xauthority    does not seem to help02:09

Zerkalerkait wasn't so big.. it was only as big as the old one, then I tried to fix stuff and then it got huge02:13
daftykinsand in the meantime "sudo chown -R username: ~/"02:13
daftykinsso run my chmod above, now "sudo service lightdm restart"02:14
daftykinsand see if it lets you log in02:14
Zerkalerkashould i reboot computer02:14

Zerkalerkaok yeah it works02:19
Zerkalerkait just auto logins now like before02:19
Zerkalerkaim confused on what might of happened.. only thing I did was setup ssh on that machine and the one I am on now.. and I copied 2 .deb files and installed them through ssh02:20

Zerkalerkawanted to see if it would load lol02:21
daftykinsit will not!02:22
Zerkalerkanope :(02:22
Zerkalerkaand it will break things02:22
Zerkalerkaso that just means root took over permissions in my ~/ directory where the user could now not access?02:23
Zerkalerkathats what was causing the issues?02:23
daftykinsZerkalerka: in the last pastebin i asked you to do, have a look at the line before last02:23
Zerkalerkaah good eye02:24
Zerkalerkai see so we changed ownership of the files that root was locking02:25
daftykinswell that root owned, yep02:25
daftykinsso then your user had access and wasn't booted02:26
Zerkalerkaright, would explain why i was on the desktop and after i ran that stupid command i went back and i was all of a sudden stuck in login screen :P02:26

michagogo(there wasn't much in there)07:18
michagogoA couple times, it crashed, and popped up a window about Terminal crashing.07:19
cfhowlettmichagogo, please stop using07:19
michagogoThen I tried to do something else, it crashed silently, and I did it again and it crashed, this time saying something about an internal Ubuntu error. It suggested rebooting, so I rebooted, opened a terminal, and noticed that my environment variables didn't automatically get set. Now, when I run `ls -a` in ~, it just crashes silently.07:21
michagogoDoes anyone have any idea what might be happening, or how I could try finding out?07:22

michagogoSeveas: yeah, I would think so07:32
michagogoIs there any chance it had to do with me working in /tmp?07:32

michagogoIs there a way I can try tracking what makes Terminal crash exactly?07:35
michagogoOr even, what it's actually doing?07:35
Seveasin the terminal window, first open a new bash shell (just type bash) and then do the ls thing.07:35

Dediany suggestion of lightweight linux distro...I am using toshiba l31007:50
k1l_!lubuntu | Dedi07:52
ubottuDedi: lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.07:52
Dediwhat about lxle vs lubuntu? which one is good..?07:55
DediI`ve used lubuntu, sometime my laptop goes black because of heating, i guess...07:56
michagogoOh, and one single `ls -la` triggers the crash08:02
tsushiSomeone know an easy to setup log analyzer ? I tried to install Graylog08:04
tsushiBut, now i just wanna kill myself08:04
iptablemichagogo, 1. check if you have enough ram, 2. check another terminal (xterm or something, you may need to install it), 3. run memtest (need reboot to grub), 4. run fsck08:04
iptabletsushi, what logs?08:05
michagogoiptable: I have 3034 MB of RAM, and it's in a VM. And yes, I already tried xterm and it's fine.08:05
tsushiGood question lol. Both for networking gear and another linux server08:06
iptabletsushi, tried logwatch?08:06
tsushinah, only been wrestling with graylog so far08:06
tsushii'll check it out08:07
iptabletsushi, there is also nagios for log monitoring. try both then.08:07
iptablemichagogo, so we know it's that particular terminal emulator that's faulty. tried reinstalling? apt-get install --reinstall ...08:07
michagogoeep, fsck is giving a scary warning08:07
tsushiokay, thanks08:07
michagogoI guess I need to unmount the fs08:07
michagogoso... reboot from the iso?08:08
michagogoiptable: sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-terminal?08:08
michagogoI'll try that08:08
iptablemichagogo, it's possible somehow it's got corrupt, in which case I would also run a full fsck and smart test (install smartmontools and run smartctl -a to see if overall disk status is passed). Could be bad sectors.08:09
michagogoReinstalled gnome-terminal, still happening08:09
michagogoiptable: is memtest/smartctl relevant in a VM? I'd assume not.08:10
iptablemichagogo, fsck should be done in offline mode, so yes. boot from liveCD and perform an fsck. there is a switch to make it not repair errors but just report them to begin with if you want (man fsck).08:10
iptablemichagogo, fsck is relevant. memtest is too (VM could be allocated faulty RAM bits). smartctl, depends. if you have bad sectors on the physical HDD, then yes, most relevant. You need to run memtest and smartctl on physical host though.08:11
michagogoOkay, booting from the iso to fsck in the vm08:11
michagogoHost is Windows.08:11
iptablemichagogo, ugh, liveCD the host, install and run smartmontools (smartctl -a), and reboot liveCD into memtest. let it do 5 passes.08:12
michagogoErm, i tried running fsck08:12
jpentlandI have some problems with APT and DPKG - does anyone know what could be up? http://pastebin.com/VXZWcXff08:13
michagogoit just printed "fsck from util-linux 2.20.1" and exited08:13
iptablemichagogo, should memtest, smartctl and fsck not fix your issue, then the problem is most likely somewhere else, within the VM installation. I would try then to: remove gnome-terminal from /var/cache/apt, run apt-get install --reinstall again, or even purge and install instead to make sure binaries are gone (assuming gnome-terminal purge will not try to remoe hell load of stuff as dependency)08:13
iptablejpentland, gzip: stdout: No space left on device08:14
michagogoiptable: looks like SMART status on the host is OK08:14
iptablejpentland, as stated by the error, you have no space left on device. df -h to see. you will notice that /boot partition (as you put it on a separate partition and made it too small) is full.08:14
jpentlandiptable, oh its my /boot partition08:14
michagogoiptable: and how do I run fsck from the livecd?08:14
=== badon_ is now known as badon
jpentlandiptable, so "apt-get autoremove" will remove old kernels and make space for the new one?08:15
iptablemichagogo, fsck /dev/sdX08:15
michagogoActually, makes sense that it wouldn't do anything :P08:15
iptablejpentland, theoretically08:15
iptablejpentland, if not, you will have to run dpkg -l |grep linux, and remove the relevant linux-image kernels (all except what is currently running from uname -a).08:16
jpentlandiptable, ok thanks08:16
michagogoiptable: it said "permission denied while trying to open /dev/sda", and said I must have r/w access to the fs or be root08:16
iptablemichagogo, yes. sudo08:16
michagogoSo I added sudo, and now it says that it's in use08:16
iptablemichagogo, exact error please08:17
michagogo"/dev/sda is in use.\ne2fsck: Cannot continue, aborting."08:17
iptablemichagogo, fsck /dev/sdX i.e. your partition too.08:17
iptablemichagogo, fsck /dev/sda1 for example08:17
iptablemichagogo, fdisk -l /dev/sda to see your partitions08:18

michagogothere/s sda1, sda2, sda508:18

michagogoum, that was very fast08:18
michagogo/dev/sda1: clean, ######/####### files, #######/######## blocks08:19
iptablemichagogo, I need to run, but following fsck, still do: remove /var/cache/gnome-terminal, reinstall gnome-terminal using apt-get, login as another user (create another user) and try gnome terminal (could be your user profile is damaged causing this, need to test that), run smartctl on host and memtest on host.08:19

somsipdanieel: the irc channel for touch may have interactive people in it08:21
iptablemichagogo, /var/cache/apt/ is where apt cache for deb packages is. you need to remove gnome terminal from there. otherwise you could be reinstalling a broken version08:21

michagogo(upgraded from 12.04 a while back, I think)08:22
iptablemichagogo, ok, standard ubuntu, not some lubuntu/xubuntu or other variant? also, did the issue start after the upgrade?08:22
michagogoIssue started just now, upgraded a long time ago08:22
iptablemichagogo, silly question, df -h shows you got space on both partitions still free?08:23
michagogoThe issue started after I unpacked a .tar.gz into /tmp and was looking around with file and ls08:23
michagogoThough I don't know if that's just a coincidence08:23
iptablemichagogo, as asked, do you have space on your partitions? pls provide output of df -h in pastebin08:24
iptablecould be full /tmp :D08:24
michagogoOkay, as soon as gnome-terminal reinstalls08:24
iptablemichagogo, /tmp will be a virtual filesystem that is VERY small. you are not supposed to do that there from what I remember08:25
michagogoiptable: cannot remove /var/cache/apt/gnome-terminal, no such file/dir08:27
iptablemichagogo, you need to be a bit inventive08:27
iptablemichagogo, cd /var/cache/apt ; ls |grep gnome-terminal08:27
iptablemichagogo, ls /var/cache/apt/archives even08:28
michagogothat dir only has apt-file, archives, pkgcache.bin. srcpkgcache.bin08:28

iptablemichagogo, and test again08:34
iptablemichagogo, test using a different user08:34

michagogoiptable: Is there any way to try and get some kind of trace or dump that someone could use to figure out wtf is going on?08:41
iptablemichagogo, yes, you can enable crash dumps for it or run it with strace (strace gnome-terminal) to see08:42
iptablemichagogo, though I don't play with those so either google or ask for someone to assist with those. It's the last thing you can do apart from a reinstall08:43
michagogo(BTW, I first realized this was happening when I noticed my automatic environment variables weren't set after I rebooted after that tgz thing, so I ran `ls -a` and it crashed)08:43
iptablemichagogo, I will bet it's some library that gnome-terminal uses08:44
michagogoRan strace gnome-terminal | tee gnome-terminal-strace08:45
michagogoTons of text flying by08:45
michagogoSeeing lots of "Resource temporarily unavailable"08:45
iptablemichagogo, ah, if you messed up your variables, that could cause gnome-terminal to crash. DO check env.08:45
iptablemichagogo, which resource? what is it trying to access08:45
michagogoiptable: no, I didn't change anything in the environment any time resently08:46
iptablemichagogo, you need to check strace or do a crash dump and gdb analyze it. one of those will tell you where it's failing. I REALLY need to go now.08:46

michagogoiptable: as am I. Again, I can't thank you enough09:08
iptablemichagogo, no worries09:08
michagogoAt annoying as it was to lose 2 hours to this, it would have been much worse to have to reinstall and set the VM up from scratch09:08
Night_ElfDedi: You might ned to check what flash player you're using. Adobe or gnash, for example.09:09
Dediadobe I guess...09:09
Night_ElfDedi: Ubuntu has Iceweasel? Wow!09:09
iptableDedi, flash is very buggy, but that would be your CPU fan spinning. 1. buy compressed air and clean up your fan using that. 2. install chrome/chromium and enjoy youtube and other sites via HTML5. 3. buy faster laptop if  you can,, 4. DO check what flash player you are using as Night_Elf suggested, 5. make sure you installed GPU drivers09:09
iptableDedi, actually, FIRST make sure you have GPU drivers installed if you are running ATI/nvidia, not the default opensource ones. you will not get GPU performance on nvidia/ati unless you use their proper drivers. so your CPU could be doing GPUs job09:10
Dedimy laptop is using intel...I ll try chrome/chromium then...09:11
Night_ElfDedi: actually, when that fan noise appears, do you have high cpu load ?09:13
Dediyes, like 10 % and 500 MB of 1 GB ram...09:14
Night_ElfDedi: 10% of cpu load is not that bad. My laptop starts to fan-up when cpu load goes around 70%09:18
k1l_Dedi: crunchbang is dead and not supported here anyway09:18
DediI guess my RAM is very low, yes, cruncbang is not supported, but i think it lightweight, so why dont give it a try...09:19
k1l_Dedi: because its #ubuntu in here. if you want to talk about crunchbang see their support channel or try ##linux09:20
Dedievery time i send text it says ##linux :Cannot send to channel09:20

SirVashanmcphail: Thanks. I'll try the live demo. As long as Ubuntu is capable. didn't want to waste my time.09:25
SirVashanlotuspsychje: Yeah, it's a touch laptop.09:25
mcphailSirVashan: it is the quickest way to check. Works well with my wife's Dell touchscreen laptop09:26

zen_WOW, Ubuntu 14.04 is burning up my cpu's :( is 14.10 a better choice?09:54
zen_i tried P-senser, nvidia-prime. have it set to powersave.. still burning up :(09:55
iptablezen_, burning up CPUs? install official nvidia driers09:57
iptabledrivers even09:57
iptablezen_, not just prime.09:58
zen_i did09:58
iptablezen_, are they running? dd they compile? lsmod |grep -i nvidia09:58
zen_and thermald as well09:58
iptablecheck above lsmod09:58
iptableand then what do sensors say? what's the current temp.09:58
zen_nvidia               9704627  7109:59
zen_drm                   255469  6 i915,drm_kms_helper,nvidia09:59
iptablezen_, ok, what's the temp, what's the machine spec09:59
zen_current temp is 70c with 1-2% load09:59
zen_Intel® Core™ i3 CPU M 380 @ 2.53GHz × 410:00
iptablezen_, fan running really fast or not?10:00
zen_GeForce GT 540M/PCIe/SSE210:00
iptablezen_, if you run top, what does it say about CPU use, what's using it?10:00
zen_yes.. the fan speeds up very fan and runs way more then it used to in inbuntu 1210:00
zen_xorg and plugin contain from firefox uses the most10:01
iptablezen_, if you kill firefox, is it still an issue?10:02
iptablezen_, also, LOAD is NOT in %10:02
Apk-Sslwho here is a pc espert ?10:02
Edistodoes unity free unused memory without having to use commands?10:02
zen_but even with very low loads i get insane temp10:03
iptablezen_, load of 2 means 200% CPU use (more or less, loads more factors involved there, but take that as a rough guide assuming no network or HDD problems are involved)10:03
k1l_Edisto: ram or disk space?10:03
Apk-Ssl.o who here is a pc espert ?10:03
iptablezen_, so, if you kill firefox and wait 5 minutes, what's the temperature?10:03
k1l_!ask | Apk-Ssl10:03
ubottuApk-Ssl: Please 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 !patience10:03
zen_thx for the help iptable.. im a little new to linux still10:03
k1l_Edisto: yes.10:03
zen_if i kill firefox its still an issue yes10:03
iptablezen_, typically, I need you to kill firefox and tell me what happens to the temperature10:04
k1l_Edisto: see linuxatemyram.com for an explanation on how linux uses the ram and why a "full ram" is not the same as you know it from windows.10:04
iptablezen_, also once you ill firefox, check with top to see what is using the CPU again.10:04
iptablezen_, also check free ram with free -m (shows in MB). and once done, check if you run xubuntu/lubuntu/ubuntu gnome 14.04 if this is still an issue or just with official main ubuntu. (boot from liveCD/liveUSB to test). We will then know what we are troubleshooting.10:05
zen_cpu usage dropped to 4% after killing firefox.. temp is still 70c10:06
zen_xorg is on top10:06
iptablezen_, where you getting % from?10:06
iptablezen_, from top output?10:06
Edistok1l: thanks. Was trying to figure why my system was slowing must have been gimp and flash plugin from firefox10:07
zen_from psenser10:07
iptablezen_, ok, apt-get update ; apt-get dist-upgrade10:07
iptablezen_, as root10:07
zen_em:          3722       2069       1653         29        293        91910:08
iptablezen_, once done reboot to new kernl (just reboot) and chek again. if issue persists, give us output from top (first full page), full output from dmesg, and output from free -m - all in a pastebin.10:08
zen_sry.. free mem10:08
iptablezen_, we don't work with cutouts, full output in passtebin10:09
zen_ok thanks abunch Iptable, brb10:09
iptablezen_, I might not be here, but someone else should pick up10:09
iptablezen_, to clarify, I believe something may be wrong with compatibility of kernel module which handles CPU timing and sleeps10:10
zen_oki thanks alot ip10:11
zen_ill do the dist-upgrade10:11
zen_but i should have the newest.. brb10:12

iptablezen_, also do try to check bios settings for acpi/apic10:36
iptablezen_, pm me when you checked (livecd/usb check will do).10:37
zen_i just don't understand how it got worse after i went with a fresh install. it was not this bad on ubuntu 1210:37
zen_oki.. that take some time to get the distros down.. but many thx.. wilml do10:37

PigDudeI’m running an Ubuntu VM via VMWare. ntpd seems to crash on this VM whenever it is paused for some time (whether by pausing the image in VMWare, or by suspending the host OS which has the same effect). (on `sudo service ntpd stop` I get “start-stop-daemon: warning: failed to kill 1248: No such process”, for instance). What logs can I look at to troubleshoot this?13:12
PigDudeThe VM is Ubuntu 12.0413:12
ikoniaPigDude: the process is killed at pause13:13
ikoniabecause you can't keep a time server running13:13
ikoniaso it can't kill it because the process the pid file is referencing is gone13:13
PigDudei don’t understand, i never have this issue when suspending a linux host OS13:13
PigDude(meaning, not a VM)13:13
PigDudei’ve also never had this issue with a VM before. i just wanted to find out why ntpd was crashing13:14
AlexPortableUsing xinput_calibrator can't help me either13:14
ikoniaPigDude: because time dies13:15
PigDudewas hoping for some other info ... man ntp says I can pass -l $log_path, so I guess I can patch init.d/ntp ... but i expected this to be logged somewhere. your explanation also doesn't make sense ikonia, like i pointed out, i've never had this issue when suspending a Linux OS before, physical or virtual13:17
ikoniawhy would -l help ?13:17
PigDudebecause it would allow me to specify a log file location, being unable to find any log now, or relevant messages in dmesg, syslog, etc.13:18
PigDudewhy *wouldn't* it help?13:18
ikoniawhat has the log file got to do with anything ?13:18

PigDudewell i'd appreciate some real help13:19
cfhowlettPigDude, drop the attitude please13:19
ikoniaI can offer me detail if you explain where you are in debugging13:19
ikoniaso you understand why the error is actually erroring right ?13:19
MrAristo"it's just high level" - Obviously that didn't help him, so it's not useful.13:19
ikoniathe question was "why do I get this error"13:20
PigDudeno it wasn't!13:20
ikoniathe answer is "because time/ntp is dead"13:20
PigDudethe question was *how do i investigate this*.13:20
PigDudecolored with an assumption that logfiles would be the answer13:20
ikoniaok - so you understand why you are getting the actual error right ?13:20

PigDudedigitsm: i set to the host timezone or UTC. you can export TZ in your bashrc for local timezone, etc.13:23
digitsmTheNumb, I am not sure whether a different timezone than your geographical timezone can make a problem or not?13:24
digitsmFor example problems in SSL, some communications, etc.13:24
mcphaildigitsm: the timezone is different, but the _time_ is the same. Set it to what suits you best and be heppy. Everything will be fine13:25
digitsmmcphail, Hmmm. Thanks13:25
mcphaildigitsm: if the server was only being used by you, you'll probably prefer your own timezone. If it is being shared by your European colleagues, you can set to UTC or have a fight :)13:26

VoyageElysia, ^14:29

ElysiaVoyage: yeah, that's mostly just a shell/bash file.  it's just a series of instructions14:29

VoyageElysia,  nothingmuch  I just heard that doing this with python is smarter?14:30
Elysiawell, nearly every programming language allows you to call command line (os) functions and interact with them in your own way.14:30
Elysiabut your question is overly vague and it need not be.  I suggest you just ask what you'd like to achieve.14:30
nothingmuchit depends on the task at hand… python, perl, ruby, etc are more general purpose programming languages, all of which have numerous libraries for calling out to external commands, and doing much more complicated interprocess communication etc… shell scripting is optimized for that task in the language itself14:31
nothingmuchyou can also write shell scripts that use python or any other languages, or write programs in those languages that use shell scripts14:31

ubottuMidoshi27: fail2ban (source: fail2ban): ban hosts that cause multiple authentication errors. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.9.1-1 (vivid), package size 209 kB, installed size 1075 kB15:39
mcphailsh0t: change the spaces to tabs. Make sure your editor doesn't cheat and switch them back to spaces15:39
SchrodingersScatMidoshi27: maybe if you host enough freedom, you will get banned on great firewall, solves problem on their end?15:39
Midoshi27ubottu: thanks robot!15:40
flaburgananyone to explain me how the wiki works?15:40
mcphailsh0t: btw, that is a fairly useless makefile. It won't detect and rebuild an individual component when a single source file changes. You'd have been as well just writing a shell script15:40
flaburganwho has write permission on wiki.ubuntu.com/diaspora?15:40
hremdkll maybe visudo is corrupt_15:40
pbxMidoshi27, sounds like you're doing the right things.  block ip ranges if the failed attempts annoy you. for hardening, you could turn off password auth and just use ssh keys. e.g. https://www.debian-administration.org/article/530/SSH_with_authentication_key_instead_of_password15:40
sh0tthanks mcphail %s/^ \{8}/^V<Tab>/ this worked15:41
k1lhremd: well. now it depends what the user did there.15:41
Brayden5234I have a support question.15:41
mcphailsh0t: a lot of editors do stupid things like converting tabs to spaces. Causes endless frustration15:41
reetbearBrayden5234: ask and see15:42
Brayden5234Is it possible to run Ubuntu off of a 3tb external hard drive? But like when you make changes or download something when you are running ubuntu it saves if you shutdown the computer?15:42
mcphailsh0t: (of course, the real problem is "make" being specific about whitespace. That was always a bad design)15:42
hremdkll imo she used gui to change user pass15:42
hremdand it backfired15:42
=== Dreaman is now known as CrackerJack
al2o3-crBrayden5234: sure15:42
hremdI cant open visudo as it needs sudo lol15:43
hremdmaybe boot for live cd and change visudo from there?=15:43
mcphailBrayden5234: I was just reading a blog from popey explaining this process...15:43
k1l!password | hremd15:43
ubottuhremd: Forgot 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. Sudo doesn't ask for your password? It remembers you for several minutes. Please use strong passwords, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/StrongPasswords15:43
hremdkll password does not work :D15:43
Brayden5234Oh really mcphai? Can you give me the link please? Thank you.15:44
popeyBrayden5234: yeah, you can do that - as mcphail says http://popey.com/blog/2015/03/25/making-a-portable-persistent-ubuntu-usb-stick/15:44
k1lhremd: afaik changing the password in gui works. dont know what was done or where it failed.15:44
popeyBrayden5234: I used a usb stick but you can do it with a hard drive in a caddy15:44
Brayden5234Thank you guys so much :D15:44
k1lhremd: the bot mentions the lost password link. see that15:44
mcphailpopey: I wasn't stalking you, honest :)15:44
reetbearBrayden5234: helpful15:45
Brayden5234So when I install Java or install a game on the ubuntu running off the hard drive and I turn off the computer and turn it back on it will save?15:45
mcphailBrayden5234: yes15:45
hremdkll ty15:45
hremdits clear now15:45
sh0tyeah mcphail it seems to be an issue as i keep reading15:45
Brayden5234Awesome just what I was looking for :D15:45
sh0tis cmake something better?15:45
mcphailsh0t: cmake isn't a replacemant for make. It replaces autotools. You still use make at the end15:46
reetbearBrayden5234: mcphail he's running a hard drive not a thumb drive15:46
mcphailreetbear: that doesn't change anything15:46
sh0tok mcphail thanks i still have to read a lot about these tools15:46
sh0tthanksa gain.15:47
b4tm4nis there a difference between mkfs /dev/sdb and mkfs /dev/sdb115:47
Brayden5234Yeah I need to put it on a 3.0 USB 3TB external harddrive15:47
mcphailsh0t: worthwhile learning how to write a proper makefile. It makes life a lot easier. And I'd recommend the autotools book (?by caldicott) if you want to learn how to automate the process15:47
mcphailsh0t: john calcote, not caldicott15:48
mcphailsh0t: http://www.nostarch.com/autotools.htm15:49
reetbearBrayden5234: set bios or efi to boot from that drive. Install normal to that drive15:49
ki7mt^That is a good autotools book15:49

PanV1 op is online, 1845 are online. I think about... 90% is afk.15:54
PanVIncluding the op15:54
* PanV is bored.15:55
ki7mtThere are many more ops in the channel than one, they just don't have channwl ops assigned to the all the time, which is the right way to be.15:55
k1lguys, he is made gone. so lets focus back on support. if there is further pm harassment while he is not in this channel anymore report to #freenode for network staff to handle that15:56
Brayden5234Alright thank you k1l sorry for getting off-topic.15:56
Brayden5234Alright so I must have Ubuntu or a linux OS to do what I said above?15:58
Brayden5234The guide here: http://popey.com/blog/2015/03/25/making-a-portable-persistent-ubuntu-usb-stick/      is a guide for linux. What about windows?15:58
k1lBrayden5234: for windows support ask in ##windows15:59
PanVSupport: I want to get some themes with the help of NoobsLab. MacBuntu OS Y Theme, Icons and cursors... but I cannot install those.15:59
PanVi have installed ppa:noobslab/themes15:59
youdmaniwBrayden5234: no16:00
Brayden5234Alright will do k1l16:00
mcphailBrayden5234: you can try installing onto the USB drive directly from an install USB stick16:00
Brayden5234mcphail what? I didn't follow that sorry.16:01
k1lPanV: what ubuntu are you on? "lsb_release -d"16:01
daftykinsBrayden5234: do you also have a flash drive spare? you can boot that and install to this external HDD.16:01
ki7mtWindows installed on USB stick? Don't think that is possible (may be wrong), even if it were, would be old-dog slow16:01
mcphailBrayden5234: download ubuntu, put the installer on a USB stick, reboot into the installer and choose to install onto your external USB drive. It often works, but sometimes needs some tweaking16:01
Brayden5234ooohhhhhhh that is brilliant daftykins! Does it really work though?16:01
PanVki7mt, it is possible, since it is on a drive.16:02
k1lPanV: so what package do you want to install now?16:02
daftykinsBrayden5234: well i'm suggesting installing properly, not any of this persistence rubbish16:02
ki7mtHe said Stick .. not drive16:02
youdmaniwBrayden5234: your drive will appear as a internal drive16:02
reisioit's possible, but not fun16:02
PanVI have installed ppa:noobslab/themes16:02
reisioMicrosoft isn't really a fan of flexibility16:02
Brayden5234Alright yeah that makes sense that you16:02
reisiodunno why, they could just charge for it16:02
jostHi... I just updated from XUbuntu 14.04.2 to 15.04. Now my VPN connection does not work any longer, although the configuration stayed the same. Can someone help me debug it? Here is the relevant part of the syslog: http://dpaste.com/119XH1Z16:02
PanVbut I cant get the mbuntu-y-ithemes-v5 or16:02
reisioprobably because they only bought the OS, and don't know the full ramifications16:02
cowbaconyou can also do it in virtualbox. attach usb hdd to vm. install to the usbhdd16:02
daftykinsBrayden5234: i'm referring to Ubuntu there of course, you can't do this with Windows.16:03
youdmaniwjost: one word. SYSTEMD16:03
k1lPanV: its only v4 in that ppa for 14.0416:03
Brayden5234Yeah I want to do it with ubuntu not windows16:03
PanVSo.. I cant have it?16:03
Brayden5234I want to put Ubuntu on an external hard drive16:03
k1lPanV: see this list. its sorted for the 14.04 version already: https://launchpad.net/~noobslab/+archive/ubuntu/themes?field.series_filter=trusty16:03
EriC^^Brayden5234: do you currently have ubuntu installed?16:03
jostyoudmaniw: ok... how to fix it?16:03
daftykinsBrayden5234: yes so put it on a flash drive first.16:03
reisioBrayden5234: that you can plug into random boxes?16:03
Brayden5234No I have windows 816:03
PanVBrayden5234, you can install I think Ubuntu on any drive.16:03
Brayden5234So put ubuntu with unetbootin on a flash drive. Boot my PC with that then plugin my harddrive and install ubuntu on to it?16:04
daftykinsdon't use unetbootin, use UUI from pendrivelinux.com16:04
Brayden5234Oh alright16:04
PanVBrayden5234, use UNetBootIn, I did this on Windows 8. Then launched the USB Stick, chose "Try Ubuntu without installing" and in the desktop there is an icon16:04
PanVdaftykins, in windows 8 it is better16:04
PanVI believe it is a better solution.16:05
Guest8000If I have 3 servers and I wish them to have the same date & time down to microseconds, is ntpdate the way to do it?16:05
daftykinsBrayden5234: yep, then boot "try ubuntu" and come on webchat from here - because you'll need to make two critical changes to make this work properly and not mess with your Windows install16:05
daftykinsPanV: "it" ?16:05
daftykinsunetbootin is not better than UUI :)16:05
PanV? UNetBootIn16:05
PanVthan pendrivers16:05
Brayden5234Alright will do. Be back on here later16:05
PanVWell, it worked fo rm16:05
BluesKajjost,  "The synchronous pptp option is NOT activated" is there an option to activate that?16:05
PanVfor me better16:05
youdmaniwJost all scripts are handled by systemd now, not upstart. Subunit in version 15.04 just threw it in without changing the scripts16:05
daftykinsPanV: so you're claiming you used both programs and UUI caused trouble?16:05
PanVI claim I used Pendrivers.16:06
=== khisanth__ is now known as Khisanth
PanVbut it didnt work for me good.16:06
daftykinsi don't know what that is.16:06
PanVbut UNetBootIn helped me.16:06
PanVit installed and launched the USB stick16:06
daftykinsok well that's all well and good, but you're one user - versus all the people we regularly help :)16:06
BluesKajyoudmaniw, dunno about pptp vpn but openvpn is not affected by systemd16:06
jostBluesKaj: nothing that I can see16:06
youdmaniwJost all scripts are handled by systemd now, not upstart. UBUNTU version 15.04 just threw it in without changing the scripts16:06
PanVI just tell my opinion, I dont make a war.16:06
PanVIf you want use Pendrivers, perhaps the problem was..16:07
PanVoh s* the problem was me.16:07
PanVMy hard drive of 500 GB wasnt appereantly supported, both of programs.16:07
PanVso I used an 8 GB usb with UNetBootIn16:07
* PanV says My Fault!16:07

PanVExcuse me. sudo (auto remover command)? please?16:14
youdmaniwnandoe: how about TOR16:14
omgitsmityoudmaniw: tunnelbear and such is great for a quick private browsing connection, but i would never trust a BROWSER to handle my most sensitive company data16:14
EriC^^PanV: sudo apt-get autoremove ?16:14
omgitsmityoudmaniw: plus, im sure this user wants to use the VPN for something other than just a browser.16:14
PanVThanks EriC^^16:15
omgitsmitnandoe, test with a "what is my ip" website. make sure your actually using the vpn.16:15

jKaideNhey guys, just setting up Ubuntu 14.04, i don't have physical access to the server, so i had to install the OS remotely via cpanel and they had the OS for ubuntu16:41
jKaideNbut I'm not sure if it's the latest version, should i be doing a do-release-upgrade16:41
omgitsmitjKaideN: would it harm anything if you did?16:41
OerHeks14.04 is the latest LTS.16:41
reisiowell, the real question is would you have to spend time/money you don't have to undo it if it broke16:41
jKaideNOerHeks, there's like 14.04.2 ?16:42
omgitsmit+1 reisio16:42
OerHeksjKaideN, yes, update brings you to 14.04.216:42
omgitsmit"If it aint broke, upgrade it"16:42
reisionot sure I'd bother, though16:42
reisioif you're using cpanel, your whole system is already that much less secure/unreliable16:42
* reisio shrugs16:42
omgitsmitreisio: eh, that's arguable16:42
jKaideNreisio, it's not as if everything is pre-configured. It's just an ISO they they hold16:43

reisioa webUI has root access to your system16:46
reisiothis webUI did not come from a .deb16:46
jKaideNomgitsmit, its ILO2 access. How can i prompt my own/custom ISO through this ?16:47
omgitsmitreisio: my cpanel does not have root, it only conrtols physical stuff like power management and networking16:47
omgitsmitjKaideN: you may have to contact them first16:47
reisioomgitsmit: which it does by having root16:47
omgitsmitreisio: root to the host system, but not to the guest vm16:48
jayjoomgitsmit: what is an X-server? What are the search terms to read up on this? Is it jsut an apt-get...? I have a private machine so I can put what I need on it to get matplotlib running16:48

nemithI can't seem to figure out how to map the caps lock key to ctrl on 15.04.  Any clues?17:02
wafflejocknemith, haven't tried 15.04 yet but you may want to check out xbindkeys I've used it for some key mapping stuff before17:03
Brayden5234Someone said it would be possible choosing the external hard drive to install it to it.17:03
=== john is now known as Guest44884
wafflejocknemith, ah take it back just looked that up again, recall now I was just using that for keybindings to do various operations for the window manager, not mapping keys17:06
nemithyeah looks like I can run commands to key bindings17:07
wafflejocknemith, you try this? http://askubuntu.com/questions/149971/how-do-you-remap-a-key-to-the-caps-lock-key-in-xubuntu17:07
Brayden5234Hello guys, sorry I went off line for a second.17:08
Brayden5234Any thoughts on my problem/idea?17:08
wafflejockBrayden5234, no worries, no replies came in so far17:08
Brayden5234Oh alright17:09
wafflejockreisio, Brayden5234 is trying to install via a USB live image to an external USB drive17:09
nemithwafflejock: i though so17:09
wafflejockif I understood correct, but isn't seeing the external17:09
nemithlet me try again17:09
Brayden5234Yeah, so basically.... I am right now running Ubuntu 15.05 off of try ubuntu and trying to click the install icon on the desktop and install ubuntu to an external hard drive17:10
wafflejockBrayden5234, I can maybe help with checking your devices that are hooked up and checking if the external is mounted or if we can mount it manually, but I'm not familiar with the process for installing to an external drive17:10
al2o3-crBrayden5234: why don't you just install ubuntu fully on the external hd17:10
Brayden5234Thats what I am trying to do.17:10
Brayden5234I do not know how though.17:11
nemithwafflejock: yeah that doesn't work for whatever reason17:11
al2o3-crBrayden5234: the same way you would an internal one17:11
al2o3-crjust make sure you install grub to the external drive17:11
Brayden5234Oh really? So just choose the external hard drive and install?17:11
al2o3-crBrayden5234: yeah17:11
Brayden5234How do I do that?17:11
=== rodrigosavian is now known as rodrigosav
Brayden5234Install grub I mean.17:12
al2o3-crBrayden5234: sudo fdisk -l # check to see what your ext drive is17:12
OerHeksBrayden5234, start live session, mount that hdd, and start install ?17:12
al2o3-crBrayden5234: the installer will do that17:12
wafflejocknemith, what does this show setxkbmap -query ?17:13
Brayden5234So that is it? Basically click the install ubuntu icon on the desktop and choose to install it on the external?17:13
wafflejocknemith, there's some more details on xkb here https://www.linux.com/learn/tutorials/769644-hacking-your-linux-keyboard-with-xkb and a link in there for xmodmap think thats the other one I was thinking of earlier17:13
reisioBrayden5234: should ask you where you want to install grub17:13
al2o3-crBrayden5234: yeah but make sure you pick the external one17:13
Brayden5234Alright. Awesome thanks guys :D17:14
Brayden5234Also one more question? What IRC program on Ubuntu do you guys use?17:14
reisioworst case, you re-boot the live OS and fix it17:14
al2o3-crBrayden5234: I use weechat :)17:14
wafflejockBray90820, hexchat17:14
reisioI use hexchat for GUI, and irssi for not17:14
wafflejockBrayden5234, ^^17:14
dprcIrfanAlam, try installing: gstreamer1.0-libav17:14
reisioweechat's okay for not GUI, too17:15
Brayden5234Which is the best user friendly interface?17:15
wafflejockBrayden5234, hexchat is pretty simple and lightweight17:15
Brayden5234Basically the easiest one to use for a noob?17:15
zykotick9Brayden5234: which is the best colour?17:15
Brayden5234Alright I will try that one thanks :D17:15
wafflejockBrayden5234, Quassel has it's own DB for backing the logs so you get longer history but it's heavier and more to manage than it's worth IMO17:16

blakwirein windows I can connect just fine, but in ubuntu I can only connect to a hotspot, but my internet vpn doesn't work17:23
OerHekscharlie_sanders, ia32-libs are depreciated, ubuntu is multiarch since 12.0417:23
OerHeksjust add :i386 to the package.17:23
ioriacharlie_sanders, i think you need multi-arch17:24
charlie_sandershttp://pastebin.com/5mcnTmVd is is the error , something is really broken it seems17:24
charlie_sandersOerHeks, ^17:24
blakwireis there a way to convert a windows 8.1 vpn connection to an ubuntu vpn?17:24
al2o3-crioria: OerHeks just said ubuntu is multiarch since 12.0417:24
OerHekscharlie_sanders, did you update before installing?17:24
BluesKajblakwire, ubuntu on a USB live media ?17:24
charlie_sandersyes :(17:24

BluesKajon ubuntu17:26
charlie_sandersOerHeks, that page just talks about ia32-libs, which is what I want.  ioria how do I do multi-arch ?17:26
blakwireBluesKaj: don't know17:26
blakwireI tried pptp17:27
blakwirebut did not connect17:27
al2o3-crcharlie_sanders: like OerHeks said with :i386 at the end of the package name17:27
blakwireI know it must have a pretty easy procedure, but I am stupidly missing it17:27
ioriacharlie_sanders, what are you trying  to achieve ?17:28
blakwireBluesKaj: is that what you were asking me?17:28
charlie_sandersal2o3-cr, ioria, I'm trying to run android studio, which requires  lib32stdc++6 , but every combination of packages I put it comes back with broken dependencies17:29

MaendirI was thinking to change in full OpenSUSE after trying it for 5 days on a secondary drive. Any opinions?17:29
BluesKajMaendir, no polls please17:30

blakwireis my ubuntu already prepackaged with pptp and pptp-setup packages? cause the university webpage says linux users should do "step 1 =yum install pptp pptp-setup" as the first step17:34
charlie_sandersioria, by running the install script17:34
blakwireand then pptpsetup --create vpnconnection --server --username *** --password17:35
aeon-ltdblakwire: well if you try installing does it tell you that you are reinstalling?17:36
BluesKajblakwire, I asked you earlier which vpn client and server you're using17:36
ioriacharlie_sanders, from here http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html ?17:36
al2o3-crblakwire: sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn network-manager-pptp network-manager-vpnc and use network manager17:36
charlie_sandersioria, yeah I think I got it, I already have lic6 in a 64 bit version, it won't install them both17:37
BluesKajal2o3-cr, he's using pptp17:37
al2o3-crBluesKaj: you can use pptp through network manager17:37
BluesKajal2o3-cr, yeah , but openvpn isn't what he needs17:38
al2o3-crthen just sudo apt-get install network-manager-pptp17:38

daftykinsjnxd: sounds messy, is there any data on there you're trying to keep?17:59
jnxddaftykins: yes, though its not in the same partitions that I am using18:00
daftykinsjnxd: so you're preserving a /home ?18:00
jnxdI mean that I'm going to use as / and /home/18:00

user0I just saw that I did update and the apt-get upgrade. then opened muon and there was a button highlghted "full upgrade" . I clicked and still some packages showed as upgradable. Why did apt-get upgrade didnt covered that?18:41
kokutdaftykins: any tips?18:42
daftykinskokut: you're already receiving help18:42
mcphailxAndreLopesx: You cant just use "scriptname" as a command, anyway. By default, the current directory is not in your user's $PATH so the shell will not see the script in that directory. Instead, use "./scriptname"18:42
scropemaybe error try apt-get autoremove18:42
kokutdaftykins: i was also receiving help from u m818:42
daftykinskokut: too many cooks spoil the broth18:42
mcphailuser0: a normal "apt-get upgrade" will not upgrade packages which uninstall other packages as part of the process. For a full upgrade, run "apt-get dist-upgrade"18:43
AvengerLiveskokut: on what I'm calling the second machine (the one to grab the files from), are they located in the home directory of the user for that system?18:44
user0mcphail,  thanks18:44
kokuti'm trying nautilus sftp://username@
Brayden5234I think it is stuck on creating ext4 file system18:45
daftykinsBrayden5234: give it time18:45
AvengerLiveskokut: in the event that they are in a different location, it is likely that the permissions of that location are not accessible to the user you are loggin in as18:45
user0how to install flash player for firefox and chromium-browser?18:45
Brayden5234Go to adobes website18:46
Brayden5234pretty easy18:46
Brayden5234it tells you how at the download page18:46
kokutAvengerLives: operation not supported :ssh18:46
daftykinsBrayden5234: not correct18:46
AvengerLivesthe user on must have proper access permissions for the directory as well as the files you wish to transfer18:46
mcphailuser0: ubuntu provides a flashplayer installer script which you should use18:46
AvengerLiveskokut: make sure openssh-server is installed on the machine18:47
AvengerLivesuse apt-get18:47
AvengerLivesbest to have it on both so this will work both ways in the future18:47
psycompIs this the best Linux distro for a normal PC to replace windows? Excluding the chromeOS that isn't a full-blown OS18:47
psycompI guess18:47
psycompSorry I'm new18:47
mcphailuser0: I can't remember the package name, but it is brought in if you install ubuntu-restricted-extras18:48
Brayden5234Nothing has happened. I think it froze18:48
kokutAvengerLives: package 'openssh-server' has no installation candidate18:48
AvengerLivespsycomp: it's a matter of personal preference... Mint is another option18:48
daftykinspsycomp: depends what you do18:48
psycompdaftykins: General computing. Like browsing, programming and games now and then. Which is best for me?18:49
mcphailpsycomp: the beauty of Linux is you can try them all and choose what works best for you. Ubuntu is a pretty safe bet18:49
AvengerLiveskokut: sudo apt-get install openssh-server18:49
daftykinspsycomp: what games do you play? some are available via Steam but not all18:49
Brayden5234in the more details of the installer it says: 'NULL' failed18:49
AvengerLiveskokut: it's in the ubuntu repos for sure18:50
psycompdaftykins: ah don't worry. Nothing very demanding, I saw these games are already available for Linux18:50
psycompmcphail: Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, MATE, which one is appropriate?18:50
mcphailpsycomp: I prefer default Ubuntu. You can install one and switch to the others very easily18:51
AvengerLivespsycomp: I concur18:51
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.18:52
psycompMy machine is fairly decent, so should run them all according to the system requirements, so hardware specs aren't a problem18:52
Brayden5234I would say Ubuntu is the best IMOP18:52
mcphailpsycomp: When you switch to Linux you have the freedom to try them all. Most people spend a few eeks switching between distros and desktops to see what suits them. The choice can be overwhelming18:53
psycompmcphail: To be honest I wouldn't have the time to spend too much time worrying about that, that's why I thought Ubuntu would be a safe bet..18:54
mcphailpsycomp: standard Ubuntu has become the Linux benchmark. It is an excellent choice18:54
Brayden5234Ubuntu looks the sexiest... Also has more support.18:54
psycompBrayden5234: Yes support was one of the primary reasons. There is a great amount of info for ubuntu compared to other distros...18:55
dubeyHas anyone successfully implemented Two factor authentication on ubuntu Gnome ?18:55
Brayden5234Yeah exactly.18:55
psycompmcphail: Does Ubuntu work well with Android for transferring files?18:55
dubeyI am following http://labs.packetverify.com/guides/using-google-two-factor-authentication-for-ubuntu-login/18:55
mcphailpsycomp: yes18:55
dubeynot working for me18:56
Brayden5234Yes it does18:56
Brayden5234Android phones works great with Ubuntu18:56
psycompBrayden5234: Does Ubuntu use GNOME?18:56
mcphailpsycomp: also makes a good platform for developing Android apps, if you like programming18:56
dubeyAfter doing all the steps when i logout/reboot the system, it doesn't even recognize my correct password18:56
Brayden5234Ubuntu is light wieght as well18:57
mcphailpsycomp: GNOME is an option, but by default Ubuntu uses Unity18:57
psycompmcphail: That's precisely one of the uses I would like to use Ubuntu for :)18:57
pbxmy mouse pointer disappeared on wake.  how might i get it back short of rebooting?18:58
psycompCan Ubuntu be customized like windows? the desktop and that stuff...18:58
mcphailpsycomp: perfect18:58
reisiopbx: replug it in?18:58
reisiopbx: and then look into disabling usb power saving18:58
pbxreisio, laptop, trackpad.  14.04 unity FWIW18:58
daftykinspbx: laptop? try ctrl+alt+F1 then alt+F7 to switch back18:58
mcphailpsycomp: of course. You have limitless choice, even changing the whole desktop manager if you wish18:58
pbxdaftykins, mode switch did it. nice. thanks18:59
reisiobest hack ever would be pm-utils chvt 1 and back to 718:59
mcphailpsycomp: make a live USB stick and give it a try. If you like it, install18:59
psycompmcphail: And hardware support is provided out of the box right?18:59
blorgpsycomp : Ubuntu is 200 times more customizable than anything you tired before :P18:59
Brayden5234Ubuntu is by far one of the most customizable OS's there is.19:00
mcphailpsycomp: for most things, yes. There are still some sticky patches. That's why it is worth trying a live USB first19:00
Brayden5234I mean you can completely change the look and feel of Ubuntu if your wish19:00
al2o3-crBrayden5234: i'll think you'll find that is arch19:00
psycompDo most people here use Unity?19:00
Brayden5234Haha yeah19:00
reisiopsycomp: I'd wager so, given it's default19:01
mcphailpsycomp: you may need to install some things like proprietary graphics drivers, but Ubuntu tries to make that easy for you19:01
blorgnope i'm gnome :)19:01
psycompblorg: Is there much difference between Unity and GNOME?19:01
daftykinspsycomp: i don't even use ubuntu desktop :P19:01
reisiopsycomp: "Unity" is mostly GNOME19:01
reisiothe difference is in the very top level of the UI19:02
reisioif you want your own feel for the differences, try both19:02
mcphailpsycomp: it is easy to install unity, gnome, KDE and whatever else. You just pick between them at login19:02
blorgyeah, try them.19:02
mcphailpsycomp: if you choose Ubuntu with Unity, you don't need to reinstall to switch to GNOME19:02
Brayden5234There are also many themes for Ubuntu... Unity is very customizable though19:03
psycompOk everyone. I'll download and try the default Ubuntu for now, see how it fares and if I can get used to it ;)19:03
mcphailpsycomp: enjoy, and ask here if you run into problems19:03
psycompBrayden5234: I read that Unity was known for not being so customizable as others...19:03
psycomplike KDE or xfce19:03

zorak8hi, i just installed an ubuntu server in an old laptop to use over ssh19:06
daftykinsBrayden5234: use gparted instead to make them19:06
mcphailBrayden5234: does your external HDD have enough power to spin correctly? Do you need external power?19:06

zorak8but when i close the screen of the laptop i lost the ssh conection19:06
zorak8until i open the laptop again19:06

daftykinsroot: it's unsafe to come on here as root!19:07

Brayden5234Yeah the external hard drive is a 3tb hard drive, it uses external power19:07
daftykinsGuest5934: ^19:07
Brayden5234Alright I will use gparted instead of the installation one.19:07
zorak8how can i configure the power options to only turn off the screen when is closed?19:08
AvengerLiveskokut: you didn't say root privs before. If you want to login as root you will need to edit your ssh config.  Never a good idea btw.  just grant your primary user the proper permissions and go from there19:08
daftykinsHappzz: just a heads up, that friend of yours hard disk looked faulty - so don't let them attempt any further fsck operations as it'll likely make it worse! :)19:08

zorak8with the cli19:16
Brayden5234Yeah the hard drive is spinning19:16
daftykinsblakwire: so are you installing from a DVD, or the mounted ISO?19:16
blakwiredaftykins : I am installing from a mounted iso, I mean I also burned the iso file on an actuall dvd and it works fine19:17
blakwireso the iso is fine19:17
ioriaBrayden5234, i don't know your issue, but when i did it turned out that i could only install on 1 primary partition disk, and not a partitioned one. don't know why19:17
blakwireis there a way to help with this issue?19:17
mcphailBrayden5234: there is spinning and there is spinning properly. Check/replace both wires (USB and power)19:18

ioriaBrayden5234, it's slow ?19:22
ioriakokut it's slow ?19:22
zorak8how can i configure the power options to only turn off the screen when is closed with the cli?19:22
kokutioria: yea, now i'm compressing the files to put them in the pendrive but it's stuck in the middle of the operation like something went wrong... could it have a permissions issue?19:23
mcphailzorak8: not sure the CLI does that by default, but I might be wrong. Is your BIOS sending a message to suspend when the lid is closed?19:24
ioriakokut ssh is more  practicable19:24
Brayden5234I had the external hard drive plugged into an extension cord so it is working now plugged into the wall lol.19:24
ioriakokut samba is better19:24
mcphailBrayden5234: thought so!19:25

ioriamcphail, true, i lost one week to understand that i needed a double usb cable19:26
Guest93011Though when I run things like hp-check It continues??19:26
mcphailYes - the problem is the controller doesn't need much power and appears to work correctly. But when the disk needs to spin for a while it all goes horribly wrong19:27
Brayden5234Damn managed to format it partition it as ext4 and now it is saying Input/output error during read on /dev/sdd19:27
ioriaBrayden5234, but it's related to i/o error not with the failed installation, i'm afraid19:28
Brayden5234What does that mean?19:28
Ben64Brayden5234: usually a bad drive19:28
mcphailBrayden5234: your probably still needing power. Is your USB connection going through a powered hub?19:28
Brayden5234What?! Bad drive?19:28
Brayden5234No the hard drive is plugged into the desktop directly19:29
Ben64thats usually what io error means19:29
ioriaBrayden5234, if i may, save what you have on that drive and wipe it19:29
Brayden5234I want to wipe it. Nothing is on it19:29
ioriaBrayden5234, movies ?19:30

noveltyHi. im fairly new to ubuntu and linux and am trying to install digikam on 14.04 LTS server. This question may be more general than to just this application... I managed to install the package on the command line. Do I need to install a GUI on ubuntu for it to run or does the install integrate the necessary parts required to operate?19:34
Brayden5234I did not mean for that to happen.. I thought it would put it in a paragraph19:34
OerHeksnovelty, yes, you need a gui.19:35
Brayden5234What does that mean, thats what terminal said when I typed that sudo parted -l19:35
kokutfor some reason i'm randomly losing internet access in my desktop connected via usb stick en tho it's connected to the network, is there anything i can try?19:35

noveltythanks OerHekx. I installed LXDE-CORE this morning. but haven't had a chance to experiment much since then. Will that suffice or do specific programs need components from specific GUI?19:36
Brayden5234Yes sdd is external19:36
ioriaBrayden5234,  and you cannot wipe it from live ?19:37
daftykinsBrayden5234: so again, fire up gparted and partition that disk as GPT and create some partitions :)19:37

noveltyOerHeks, cool. That's what I read. Thanks for confirming. Now for a really basic questions... do I need a display manager such as gdm or kdm to run LXDE?19:53
OerHeksnovelty, gdm and kdm are old, current is lightdm19:54
noveltyOerHeks, good to know. I will definitely need this to run everything, including the X11 interface offsite?19:55
OerHeksnovelty, if you want to run digikam, i guess so19:56
noveltyOerHeks, I'll give that a try. thanks19:57
b4tm4nnormally, i use uid and gid options in fstab to auto mount a file system. however, ext4 does not support this.  What is the best way to provide a user with permission?19:58

b4tm4ndaftykins, oh, so just chown after the mount?20:00
b4tm4ndaftykins, the mount options are confusing to me so i've just been using defaults.  if i use the "user" option that implies noexec.  is defaults ok?20:01

docmurMy server just rebooted and now when we try to boot we get a "General Filesystem Error enter maintance mode",  when w do that we can see the / and it's fine.  We can run a fsck and it's fine.  I use a GPT parition table, and I have 1MB at the front for Grub, then 4TB for /, what should I check, becaue I can't find reason this should happen, going to older releases doesn't fix anything.20:17
VlanXHello guys... Anyone knows how to fix the grub of ubuntu 14.04 after I accidently inserted a FreeBSD disk at the startup? Now ubuntu wont boot up by any mean....20:23
EriC^^VlanX: what do you mean by inserted a freebsd disk at the startup?20:24
tatoim a new user20:29
VlanXEriC^^ it means that it was already inside the dvd reader when ive swapped on the machine. Of course ubuntu 14.04 is still on the ssd but i probably have messed up the grub i guess20:29
niklas_eI am helping a friend who has problem with ubuntu. It is some problem updateing.20:29
EriC^^VlanX: no, just remove it from the dvd, or set the dvd's boot priority to be lower20:30
EriC^^niklas_e: what's the problem?20:30
DexterFhi. if I copy firmware to /lib/firmware, will it stay or would any upgrades overwrite/delete them, say kernel upgrades or the like?20:30
VlanXEric^^ unfortunately the dvd is already out. It must have wrote stuff to the mbr or something like that. Is there a guide on how to recover it?20:32
EriC^^VlanX: do you have an ubuntu live usb?20:33
niklas_eit says a lot  of "failed to fetch http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/os/Linux/distributions/ubuntu&ubuntu/dists/saucy/main/source  Sources 404 Not Found [IP: 80]20:33
niklas_eand a lot of simmular20:33
EriC^^niklas_e: which ubuntu version is he using?20:33
ubottuUbuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) was the 19th release of Ubuntu. Support ended on July 17th, 2014. See !eol, !upgrade and http://ubottu.com/y/saucy20:33
EriC^^ok, it's unsupported, he should upgrade20:34
Piciyou have a & where a / should be. also ^20:34
VlanXEric^^ no but i have the ubuntu dvd20:34
niklas_eis lts 13.1020:34
EriC^^VlanX: ok, boot it20:34
k1lniklas_e: no20:34
k1lniklas_e: 12.04, 14.04 (and 16.04 will be) lts20:34
k1lniklas_e: 13.10 sources are shutdown. you need to change them to upgrade to 14.04. see the bots message:20:35
k1l!eolupgrades | niklas_e20:35
ubottuniklas_e: End-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/EOLUpgrades20:35
Asmodeewhat would you think if someone was telling he would need 10 hours to install a ubuntu server on a nas ?20:35
VlanXEric^^ I belive i will need to type smth on the console right?20:35
yuciyuarhi. is it ok using php 5.5 on ubuntu 12.04?20:36
EriC^^VlanX: yeah20:36
EriC^^VlanX: after it boots20:36
dina_OK, I'll ask it here: I try to make my old Lexmark Z815 work on Xubuntu, but cannot find the CUPS files on the internet. Does anyone have them?20:37
VlanXEric^^ I had to leave my parents house where this pc is so I will be able to do this only tomorrow. Could you please give me a hint on what thus command is or how to look for it?20:37

niklas_eThat explained a lot20:38
EriC^^VlanX: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Installing#via_ChRoot20:39
EriC^^VlanX: follow the guide from step 6 probably, sudo fdisk -l or sudo parted -l ....20:39
VlanXThanks so much EriC^^ means a lot20:40
EriC^^VlanX: if you're using uefi you need to mount the fat32 efi partition to /mnt/boot/efi before chrooting20:40
EriC^^VlanX: no problem20:40
yuciyuarsudo apt-get upgrade, upgrades distro or repo?20:41
k1lyuciyuar: neither20:42
EriC^^yuciyuar: it upgrades the packages that are installed20:42
k1lyuciyuar: on ubuntu it just upgrades packages20:42
EriC^^yuciyuar: without the kernel, and some others maybe20:42
bazhangyuciyuar, perhaps you meant dist-upgrade20:42
yuciyuari mean if it will upgrade from 12.04 to 12.04.x its bad for me20:42
k1lyuciyuar: why is it bad?20:43
yuciyuarmy ati card driver, supporting up to 12.04.120:43
k1lyuciyuar: 12.04.2 is "just" a pointrelease. think of it like a servicepack from windows. its a summarized updates state.20:43
k1lyuciyuar: why exactly? because of the kernel? you can stick to the main kernel version it was shipped with20:44
yuciyuark1l, yes, kernel i guess20:44
yuciyuarim new to linux, and dunno settings deeply20:45
k1lyuciyuar: to install updates you need to run the apt-get update commmand to get the updated package list from the servers. but the apt-get upgrade program will update the packages on your system then. but it will not change the kernel version20:46
DexterFyuciyuar: what ati card is that? (by the way, technically should be an AMD card unless it is really, really old)20:46
Asmodeemy ati card is ati and is only 8 years20:47
yuciyuark1l, i tried, and it updated to 12.04 to 12.04.5 with upgrade20:47
k1lyuciyuar: yes. that is correct.20:48
k1lyuciyuar: so does the card stil work?20:48
yuciyuarDexterF, ati mobility radeon hd457020:48
yuciyuarit works with 12.0420:48
DexterFshould be perfectly supported by the open drivers in any recent or semi-recent linux.20:49
k1lyuciyuar: you said you updated your 12.04 which made it 12.04.5 which is actually as intended20:49
=== neorpehus is now known as neorpheus
yuciyuarDexterF, open source drivers work well, but i cant tweak such as contrast settings20:50
yuciyuarand its really necessary for my lcd to reduce contrast20:50
neorpheushello there, anyone know  where i might find some info about relocating programs from the package manager to another partition/hdd? im not entirly sure what im looking for hence my google foo is failing20:51
DexterFyuciyuar: and in .5 the binary ati/amd driver does not support that chip anymore?20:51
yuciyuari can only tweak contrast with amdccc20:51
k1lyuciyuar: so does that card work after you upgraded the 12.04 install: yes or no?20:51
yuciyuarDexterF, yes, up to 12.04.120:51
DexterFyuciyuar: xcalib --contrast [percentage] -- alter20:52
DexterFabsolutely can be done, might not be as gui-click-slider as amdccc, given20:53
k1lyuciyuar: so did you try it?20:53
DexterFwelcome to the console :)20:53
yuciyuark1l, try what20:53
k1lyuciyuar: you said you updated your 12.04 install. is that right?20:53
k1l(so it became a 12.04.5, which is intended)20:54
yuciyuaryeap  i did20:54
k1lso you actually have a 12.04.5 now?20:54
yuciyuarbut i format and install again to 12.0420:54
k1lwhat is "lsb_release -d" and "uname -a" then?20:54
guest2121212hey daftykins^, you here?20:55
neorpheusi guess im asking if there is some way to set up a /usr /bin /etc and what not on /dev/sda2 instead of the default locations on /dev/sda1 which ubuntu created during install20:55
guest2121212i left my laptop sitting overnight and when i just checked it, it seems to have finished installing the desktop, but still sitting at the command line thing where i typed the commands to install the desktop last night20:55
yuciyuark1l, Description:Ubuntu 12.04 LTS20:55
guest2121212is it safe to reboot the system or should i put in another command?20:55
k1lyuciyuar: you cant stay on 12.04 without running updates. actually your system will have security issues that a 9 year old can use.20:55
k1lyuciyuar: so what was the issue on 12.04.5?20:56
k1lyuciyuar: did it change the kernel?20:56
guest2121212EriC^^: ^ are you here as well? or Bashing-om ^ ?20:57
EriC^^guest2121212: what's up?20:57
guest2121212i think the desktop finished installign (its me again), im sitting back at that command line area where i had input the command previously, i just want to make sure i can reboot and dont have to input any other commands first20:58
k1lyuciyuar: i still try to get to know what the issue is. besides "amd says only up to 12.04.1" because that is not really a technical reason. the .1 , .2 ,.3 .... releases are just servicepacks states. they only have a new kernel if you make a clean install with them or manually change the kernel20:58
DexterFwill ubuntu on a fresh install detect SSD by itself and apply trim@boot time, noatime n fstab and such itself?20:58
yuciyuark1ll, i'll give link20:59
k1lDexterF: iirc it will make a cron trim thingy once a week. yes20:59
bekksDexterF: Trim will be applied, noatime will not be applied.20:59
EriC^^guest2121212: yeah you should be able to reboot21:00
k1lyuciyuar: i dont mind what amd/ati says. i want to hear what it was when you tested the upgrade (which is just an update actually).21:00
guest2121212ok, just like, turning the thing off and on with the power button, right? no need to reboot via command?21:01
EriC^^guest2121212: no, don't do that21:01
Bashing-omguest2121212: I just arrived, playing catchup .. OK, booting to a terminal, at the terminal what results ' sudo service lightdm start ' ?21:01
EriC^^guest2121212: always reboot using the menu or sudo reboot21:02
guest2121212oh man21:02
guest2121212that explaisn so much21:02
guest2121212ok so i should just go hit sudo reset on it now right?21:02
EriC^^sudo reboot, it won't harm, let it boot into the new kernel21:02
EriC^^you did type sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade as daftykins suggested, right?21:03
yuciyuark1l, i used update manager, and click update as i remember21:03
b00b00i am trying to create a script to install nagios as auto install, how can i do it so nagios will receive postfix, admin pass and so on needed details when installing from within the script? thanks21:03
Bashing-omguest2121212: Will not hurt to 'sudo shutdown -r now ' and see what results . A hard reboot from button is a bad bad thing ! as it leaves files open and liable to file system corruption .21:03
guest2121212ok, will do21:04
yuciyuar even i dont remember i used upgrade21:04
Pathfinderb00b00: Lol...wanted to ask the exact same thing21:04
b00b00Pathfinder: good, lets create a channel dedicated for that :)21:04
k1lyuciyuar: like i explained. that apt-get upgrade command is actually doing an update. and you need to do that to get security updates.21:04
k1lyuciyuar: so i still dont know why you dont want to run that updates besides someone saying its only supported up to 12.04.1. which technically is wrong without any further reason21:05
guest2121212haha, so21:05
guest2121212remember that black screen with the blinking cursor? its back21:05
EriC^^guest2121212: boot using nomodeset21:06
yuciyuark1l, the reason is that. nothing more; Automated installer and Display Drivers for Xorg 6.9 to Xserver 1.12 and Kernel version up to 3.421:06
=== jeremy_ is now known as Guest64842
k1lyuciyuar: see this picture: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack#Kernel.2BAC8-Support.A12.04.x_Ubuntu_Kernel_Support that are the available kernel versions. but you dont need to upgrade to 3.13. you still can run with 3.221:06
k1lyuciyuar: see above.21:07
guest2121212i'll try to, like i said last night, the black screen shows up whenever i turn the thing on, im trying to maybe get to grub by a boot device21:07
guest2121212what was the command again21:07
EriC^^hold shift to get grub21:07
wafflejockguest2121212, tap shift to see the grub boot menu if you aren't already getting to it, e to edit, add nomodeset where you see quiet or nosplash, x to boot21:07
EriC^^press e, add nomodeset21:08
guest2121212ok so the only boot option i can get is the usb21:08
guest2121212wait a minute21:08
yuciyuark1l, u're right, if i can disable updating kernel and xorg properly, i will try21:08
guest2121212I'M AT MY DESKTOP21:08
Pathfinderb00b00: Haha..cool..lol..what would the name even be ... :o !!!21:09
guest2121212i just have to boot from usb for some reason21:09
guest2121212i cant believe its finally fixed21:10
k1lyuciyuar: read the page i linked: "Anyone running an original Precise stack will NOT be automatically updated to the new Trusty HWE stack. Users can electively choose to install the Trusty enablement stack meta package if they wish to do so."21:10
yuciyuark1l, right, i didnt choose, but anyway it updated to 12.04.0521:11
k1lyuciyuar: so you did that upgrade manually last time. if you have a 12.04 or 12.04.1 install it will stay on the "old" kernel and x stack.21:11
k1lyuciyuar: its is called 12.04.5 every time21:11
yuciyuarand i didnt know how to manually choosing and didnt checked what it make update21:11
k1lyuciyuar: its not naming the kernel or x stack. dont mix that21:12
Bashing-omyuciyuar: Background: Existing restricted drivers from AMD won't work either, because they require X-server v1.12 and Ubuntu 12.04.2 ++ uses X-server v1.13 ; That's because, starting with Ubuntu 12.04.2, the X-server version was updated to a newer version that is now incompatible with the HD 2x/3x/4x series AMD cards. Terminal command ' X -version ' to determine the x-server version.21:12
k1lyuciyuar: every 12.04 install will be named 12.04.5 now. no matter if the old kernel or the new kernel is used.21:12
yuciyuarBashing-om, right21:13
yuciyuark1l, i get you. i'll try21:14
yuciyuarin fact, i dont really need 12.04 if i can tweak lcd contrast via an open source driver21:15
yuciyuarthe reason why i use this version is, amdccc work and i can tweak lcd contrast with it21:16
k1lyuciyuar: not running the updates is not an option because you will not have security updates like shellstorm or heartbleed then.21:16
OerHeksyuciyuar, twesk contrast on the lcdmonitor itself?21:16
yuciyuarbtw, i rly need for twak contrast, not brightness setting, coz my lcd making humming noise if i reduce via brightness21:17
yuciyuarOerHeks, i use laptop and it doesnt have any contrast button21:18
OerHeksoh i c21:18
b00b00Pathfinder: i asked here because of apt-get, i assume if we install (compiling) .tar.gz version, so it easier21:23
b00b00but longer install ofcourse21:24

docmur_2The live cd version is the same, should I move from live 12.04 to live 14.0421:37
daftykinsnah just hoping they matched closely21:37
Bashing-omyuciyuar: What you can do is install 12.04.1 from: http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/12.04.1/ . Do Not enable the HardWare Enablement stack, update and upgrade as nornal, you will remain on the supported Xserver version . ( I too fall into that catagory, so I do know ) .21:37

skinuxMust be a few old PPAs21:49
skinuxNo, I'm not doing a fresh install.21:49

skinuxI'm guessing the connection errors are because it's trying to pull from repositories that no longer exist.21:50
k1lskinux: see at your sources.list file. on line 62 and 63 its a maverick source.21:50
k1lskinux: then the nemh-gambas3-trusty ppa doesnt exist anymore21:50

k1lign means: no new stuff21:54

k1lkokut: ssh gives sftp login. but sshfs is slower on network due to overheat. easiest would be samba which is somewhat faster. fastest is nfs.22:08
kokutmight give it a try, now i need to find a way to configure ftp like you use with hosting providers and stuff22:08
daftykinssomeone suggested kokut browse the second system via nautilus with SFTP earlier, but was unable to help get it working i believe22:08
OerHeksfilezilla works great to connect to a ftp-service22:09

kokuttgm4883: u have any guides22:13
daftykinsluisalonsocn: and what situation leads you to consider it's overheating / getting too hot? just physical case temperature vs. windows?22:14
Jordan_Ukokut: sftp is actually easier to setup than FTP. That's partly because everyone knows that putting an FTP server on the public internet is a terrible idea, no matter how "temporary".22:14
tgm4883kokut: any guides for what? Step 1) Install ssh "apt-get install ssh" on the server. Step 2) connect to it with something like filezilla22:14
Jordan_Ukokut: tgm4883: While installing filezilla from Ubuntu's repositories is perfectly safe, the fact that their sourceforge download for Windows includes malware prevents me from ever recommending it.22:16
tgm4883Jordan_U: what malware?22:18

ironhoofI accidently had the ATI-update drivers installed, and it updated the update had some problems but it still seems to work, but the driver it updated too has skinning issues, is there a way to gt the old drivr back? I tried switching it back from updates to fixed, but it keeps the old driver it seems.22:40
daftykinsironhoof: you mean AMD, manual download or packages from default repos?22:41
ironhoofI used the drivers in settings, so which ever that uses.22:41
daftykinsfglrx packages then22:41
daftykinsgo back in there and try switching to the other, it should offer you fglrx and fglrx-updates22:42
ironhooffglrx-updates is the one i had on, it did update the driver it gave me has issues, so I switched to to fix where I thought I had it, when it did install though it said something about replacing a document gave me a window keep-replace i put the password in, and it didnt proceed, so i rebooted and fixed the packes through dkpg. I was kind of wanting the original driver back though.22:44
HoloIRCUserHello there. I am having some trouble with my TTY after installing the package kubuntu-desktop. Can anyone help me?22:44

kokutdaftykins: what program?22:46
daftykinswhatever one you're using to connect22:46
ironhoofHas the same issue, but it didnt prior, im wondering if i should use the open driver, and purge reinstall it again.22:46
kokutdaftykins: i dont know if you can do that in filezilla22:46
daftykinsironhoof: worth a go, just run sudo apt-get purge fglrx*22:46
daftykinskokut: _yes_ read the readme/manual for the program it will describe how22:47
