kittyfirekittyi have, pressing SHIFT while doing restart from windows menu takes me to trouble shooting, been there read that, no options explicitly list legacy/csm yadda yadda00:00
xidi think they were suggesting running virtual for doing the ISO operations00:00
xidrather than using windows tools00:00
kittyfirekittygotta get a bootable linux setup for the system (i.e. the iso things) before i can even try to virtualize it00:00
krabadorsupposing i would run urban terror only in a second monitor ,and only on it, how can i do?00:01
polyphagiakittyfirekitty: you're trying to install ubuntu?00:02
polyphagiaand windows says it's 32 bit?00:03
kittyfirekittyi'm trying to boot a live USB00:03
polyphagiashift on bootup is related to windows, it's not going to help you00:03
kittyfirekittyyes windows is 32 bit version00:03
polyphagiaso you burned a 32 bit live usb?00:03
kittyfirekittyno i'm downloading it (3 hours remaining)00:03
polyphagiaoh ok00:03
kittyfirekittythe cpu is a x6400:03
polyphagiaare you sure?00:03
Ben64so download the 64 bit iso...00:03
polyphagiayou're using the OEM windows too?00:03
Razzdollxid do you know how I can autologin to ubuntu desktop?00:04
kittyfirekittyi did download the 64bit, i can't virtualize it and i can't get it to boot from the boot menu00:04
polyphagiawhy doesn't it boot from the boot menu?00:04
Ben64you really don't need to run it in virtualbox00:04
xidRazzdoll: I'm positivie that it's really easy, but honestly I don't know, for Unity. Check google.00:04
polyphagiai mean you say you're on a 64 bit machine but it sure sounds like it isn't lol00:04
kittyfirekittysystem control panel says: 32bit operation system- x64-based processor00:05
polyphagiaso you managed to get into your bios?00:05
kittyfirekittyi don't know hwy it won't boot from the boot menu, it only flickers and brings me back to the boot menu00:05
polyphagiait might be uefi00:05
Razzdollxid will do00:05
kittyfirekittyif i re-enable secure boot, and try the same option it gives me a security error before returning to the menu00:05
BadDreamsounds like the install medium wasnt made bootable00:06
BadDreamor a borked install00:06
kittyfirekittyits listed as bootable in the storage management snap in00:06
polyphagiait's weird it didn't say anything though00:06
polyphagiait should say that it's not bootable00:06
BadDreamwat program did you use to make the bootable iso kittyfirekitty?00:06
kittyfirekittyit is a fat32 partition, it has the /EFI/BOOT directories00:06
kittyfirekittyLinuxLive USB Creator -- as suggested from the uefi liveUSB walk through suggestions00:07
polyphagiahm well pendrive linux is recommended by ubuntu00:07
polyphagiaalthough yeah idk about uefi00:07
BadDreamive had alot of success with unetbootin00:08
polyphagiadon't use unetbootin00:08
BadDreamworks for me00:08
xidseems like we're just guessing that it's a uefi issue00:09
xidtried loading the kernel and mounting everything manually from the grub shell?00:09
kittyfirekittyat what point will i see a grub menu?00:10
xidoh ... i may have missed something00:10
xidso i've used stuff like refind to make it find my EFI voume00:11
xidwhen all else has failed00:11
xidbut it can be accomplished with other tools like gdisk and fdisk00:11
kittyfirekittyso this pendrive linux thing, i don't exactly see a 'download for windows' button anywhere, where would i go to achieve this?00:12
Razzdollxid: 15.04, does this use LightDM? I see instructions on google, just dont know if I have Light DM00:13
kittyfirekittyah they made the universal USB installer instead, reading...00:13
xidDoes unity use lightdm in 15.04? I'm not sure, but if it does, there's a disabled "autologin" line in the default /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf. just uncomment and add your username, i think. something like that.00:15
Razzdollxid; thanks. as you can tell I am a noob, but so far.. I'm happy with it over windows00:16
Razzdollxid, if I feel lost, theres always virtualbox00:17
gill6150Still can't get steam games to run..00:18
xidno problem man. I wish I could help, but I honestly don't have Unity available to me at the moment.00:18
Razzdollxid; no its ok', you're helping plenty. As long as I know some what of where to begin and the correct phrases, chances are I could get the answer, it will take time but I always do.00:19
footoleggocould someone help me set up my proxy connection? :>00:20
gill6150Just downloaded Ubuntu, and can't get steam games to load.00:21
krabadorhow can i run a full game app like a game, only directly on second screen?00:22
UmeaboyWould it be possible to ONLY have Ubuntu installed on a 2015 Macbook Pro?00:24
Umeaboygill6150: What driver are you using?00:25
gill6150No idea.... Honestly, I'm a complete idiot when it comes to Linux.00:26
Razzdollxid; by the way. I got it. It turns out all I had to do was go into User Accounts, click on my name and enter the password and toggle the switch. D'oh!00:27
Umeaboygill6150: Open Settings ->Program and Updates-00:29
UmeaboyThen take a look at the tab called Other drivers.00:29
UmeaboyOr More Drivers.00:30
UmeaboyI use Ubuntu with another language than English so it might differ.00:30
gill6150Umeaboy: It's a Radeon HD 734000:30
UmeaboyThen google that name and add Steam to see if anyone else has had problems in Linux and how they solved it (if there IS a solution that is)00:33
Umeaboygill6150: ^^00:34
gill6150Umeaboy:  Thank you, I'll let you know if i figure it out.00:35
UmeaboyOtherwise you can always switch to the commersial driver from the list and see if THAT works.00:35
gill6150Commersial driver?00:36
polyphagiagill6150: steam isn't opening for you?00:37
xidRazzdoll: nice, I knew there was an easy way.00:37
gill6150polyphagia:  Steam opens fine, But the games within steam won't run.00:37
polyphagiadid you enable the proprietary amd driver gill6150 ?00:38
gill6150polyphagia:  I have no idea what any of that meant, sadly.00:38
polyphagiagill6150: there are two drivers available for AMD cards on linux00:38
polyphagiathe one ubuntu ships with is the open source (free software) driver00:38
xidtrying to configure that driver without any success still gives me nightmares00:38
polyphagiabut AMD has their own closed source driver00:39
gill6150polyphagia:  So tje fglrx one or the fglrx-updates one?00:39
xiddoesn't steam work on the xorg driver?00:39
polyphagiathe open source one is ideal, but it's not nearly as efficient and usually doesn't support opengl at reasonable speeds00:39
polyphagiafor newer cards anyway00:39
polyphagiagill6150: yeah00:39
gill6150polyphagia: I guess we will see if it helps.00:40
polyphagiagill6150: ubuntu should have a GUI for this00:40
polyphagiacalled jockey00:40
polyphagiajockey gtk or something00:40
gill6150Still trying to learn linux at the moment.00:40
wafflejockgill6150, polyphagia additional drivers in the dash00:40
polyphagiaand it will tell you which proprietary drivers you can install00:40
polyphagiabut we already know you need fglrx gill615000:40
wafflejockUmeaboy, are you shopping for a computer or asking for an existing MBP?00:40
gill6150polyphagia:  Alright.00:41
wafflejockgill6150, the dash is just the search thing when you hit windows key00:41
gill6150wafflejock:  I was wondering what the windows key would do on linux, Was scared to push it honestly.00:41
gill6150wafflejock:  Someone told me not too, as a joke obviously. but after that wasn't sure.00:41
wafflejockgill6150, heh yeah don't worry too much you can't break things badly (usually) unless you're using sudo or something asks for your admin password00:42
polyphagiaonly be cautious when somebody tells you to use the magic sysrq key :P00:42
gill6150polyphagia:  So, Whats this magic sysrq key? :p00:42
polyphagiayou can use it combined with some other keys to do quite a bit00:43
gill6150wow, you were quick00:43
gill6150So, What's the Ctrl+Alt+Delete of linux?00:43
polyphagiayou can use ctrl + alt + f1-f700:43
polyphagiato switch TTYs00:43
gill6150(Sorry i have had linux for a total of one day)00:43
gill6150What's TTYs?00:44
polyphagiaf7 is the one you're on now00:44
wafflejockgill6150, no problem as long as they're ubuntu support questions it's okay here00:44
polyphagiaanyway gill6150 through a tty you can login to your account and kill/start processes00:45
gill6150wafflejock:  Thanks.00:45
polyphagiayou can use a program called htop for a command line tool like system monitor00:45
gill6150I did it, and i was lost on what to do.00:45
gill6150This driver change is taking forever.00:46
polyphagiayeah it's pretty big00:46
wafflejockgill6150, yeah learning the terminal takes some time but with a few commands you can pick up the rest pretty easily... and yeah the driver change can take a while00:46
polyphagiagill6150: your graphics should be much faster once it's installed00:46
wafflejockgill6150, the man command will bring up the manual for another command so, man man, will show the manual on the manual, use arrow keys to scroll and q to quit00:46
xidI got hopeful when you mentioned Jockey, but I didn't realize that was replaced by the Software Center program. Yeah, fglrx failed horribly for me when I installed it that way.00:47
wafflejockgill6150, major commands are, ls to list files/directories, cd to change into a folder, . is the current folder .. is the parent folder, pwd (print working directory) shows the current directory00:47
polyphagiaxid: yeah jockey is rip :P00:47
Umeaboywafflejock: The latter.00:47
xidsteam works pretty well though00:47
xidwith xorg driver00:47
polyphagiait depends on which card you have00:48
wafflejock!mac | Umeaboy00:48
ubottuUmeaboy: For help on installing and using Ubuntu on a Mac, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MactelSupportTeam/CommunityHelpPages00:48
gill6150xid:  not for me00:48
polyphagiafor some cards the free drivers work great, even with 3d00:48
wafflejockUmeaboy, not sure off hand but that has some info on installing on various mac hardware00:48
polyphagiaand the free drivers are almost always way more stable00:48
polyphagiai had a 7950 though and i had no 3d acceleration with radeon00:48
wafflejockUmeaboy, I would guess if you use RefIt or some boot loader that will work there shouldn't be an issue wiping out the other partition with OS X but never tried00:48
gill6150wafflejock: So, this isn't really a support question but when i was asking whether to download ubuntu or not, i asked for pros and cons. I never got any. What cons are there?00:49
polyphagiapretty much just software compatability and familiarity i'd say00:49
wafflejockgill6150, mostly lack of proprietary software support like Adobe creative suite, games but Steam on Linux has started to quickly solve that00:49
polyphagiaalso sometimes the proprietary drivers can be slower than on windows00:49
xidpolyphagia: same, although another chipset, but in my case Xorg wasn't autodetecting, resulting in using the software graphics driver, so i had to manually configure my xorg.cnf00:50
gill6150polyphagia:  wafflejock  Those were things i already knew, so not too worried about thath. :p00:50
polyphagiawell that's pretty much it gill615000:50
wafflejockgill6150, support can sometimes be hard to come by but people in here can be helpful and you have to pay hand over fist for help on proprietary systems anyhow00:50
polyphagiahonestly wafflejock yeah i agree00:50
polyphagiasupport is not something i'd say as a con00:50
polyphagiaespecially compared to os x / windows00:50
polyphagiapeople act like because windows costs money that you automatically get microsoft support00:50
gill6150wafflejock:  Driver finished, do i need to do anything else?00:50
polyphagiawhen in reality microsoft's support is only there for enterprise :P00:51
polyphagiagill6150: restart00:51
wafflejockgill6150, nope but I believe a reboot is good to make sure everything is sticking and running00:51
gill6150Be right back, then00:51
Umeaboywafflejock: That page isn't updated when it comes to the iMac. ;(00:52
polyphagianot to mention wafflejock with gnu/linux you can talk to people who have actually screwed around in the source00:52
polyphagiaso they might have a better idea on how things work00:52
wafflejockUmeaboy, yeah I know it tends to slack behind part of why I asked about if you already had hardware cause can get systems made for Ubuntu from a few places depending on wher eyou live00:52
wafflejockpolyphagia, yeah that helps when you can get a hold of those experts00:52
wafflejockpolyphagia, also if you can code can dig in yourself sometimes00:52
polyphagiayup i've contributed a bit00:53
polyphagiait's a great way to learn too00:53
polyphagiahaving these completed projects available to learn from00:53
polyphagiainstead of always starting from scratch00:53
wafflejockpolyphagia, awesome, yeah haven't actually contributed anything back code wise yet but I started building some web interface bits that tie in with GNUCash might open source some of that stuff00:53
polyphagiasweet :D00:53
polyphagiado it00:53
polyphagiaand contributing is way easier than i thought too00:54
wafflejockpolyphagia, yeah still need to flesh it out some, right now does CSV import of JPMorgan Chase transactions and selects categories, but depends on using the MySQL datastore option in GNUCash, it seems like the team there is thinking about rebuilding that architecture sometime soon (had a lot of key/value pair stuff saved in the DB for various features)00:55
wafflejockanyhow don't want to stay OT too long in here but yeah it's fun00:55
polyphagiaah yeah i see00:55
gill6150_wafflej0ck: polyphagia  About to load steam up now, hope this works00:55
polyphagiai've never used gnucash but i'm pretty familiar with web stuff and sql00:55
polyphagiakk gill6150_ well the driver is likely already working00:56
Umeaboywafflejock: So, Apple hasn't blocked booting from an alternate media as of the new iMac's?00:56
polyphagiasince you didn't get greeted by an xorg error00:56
UmeaboyThey DON'T want us to use any other OS'es in their hardware nowadays I guess.00:56
wafflejockUmeaboy, sorry just don't know a clear answer on that, but not that I heard00:56
polyphagialol macs have an OS whitelist00:56
wafflejockUmeaboy, yeah before just couldn't use their software on other hardware00:57
gill6150_polyphagia: Still not loading steam game.00:57
gill6150_Guess ill try to delete and re download00:57
wafflejockgill6150_, which game in particular?00:57
polyphagiayou're not even allowed to virtualize os x00:57
wafflejockgill6150_, that might be worth a shot00:57
gill6150_wafflejock:  I have tried two games, Dwarfs F2P & Mount & Blade: Warband00:57
wafflejockgill6150_, some games like Bioshock Infinite they released some files without the executable at first and later released the actual program file00:57
polyphagiahmm gill6150_00:57
polyphagiadoes fglrxinfo in the terminal work?00:57
gill6150_polyphagia:  no idea what you mean soo.00:58
polyphagiasearch the dash for 'terminal'00:58
polyphagiaopen the prog and type00:58
gill6150_polyphagia:  doesn't ctrl+alt+t work?00:58
wafflejockyup that should do it too00:59
polyphagiai don't remember but it didn't last time i used gnome shell :P00:59
polyphagiabut good thing unity kept it i guess00:59
gill6150_polyphagia: wafflejock display: :0  screen: 0 OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 7340 Graphics OpenGL version string: 4.4.13374 Compatibility Profile Context 15.20.101300:59
polyphagiaok so the driver installed properly01:00
gill6150_Also, It appears Ctrl+C for copy and Ctrl+V for paste do not work, whats the command in Ubuntu? :p01:00
polyphagiathey do01:00
polyphagiajust not in the terminal01:00
polyphagiabecause ctrl + c and ctrl + v mean something else01:00
polyphagiayou can highlight and middle click01:00
wafflejockctrl+shift+c I think works too01:00
wafflejockand shift insert for paste or ctrl+shift+v01:01
wafflejockor select and middle click01:01
gill6150_I used to get like KB/s when downloading on steam, now im getting 10 MB/s01:01
Umeaboygill6150_: You can choose your own settings for the keyboard shortcuts and button combos.01:01
gill6150_Umeaboy:  Where at??01:01
polyphagiagill6150_: does glxgears work01:02
polyphagiain the terminal?01:02
=== badon_ is now known as badon
gill6150_Not installed, install it?01:02
polyphagiagill6150_: if so, what about fgl_glxgears?01:02
polyphagiatry that one first01:02
UmeaboySettings -> Keyboard01:02
gill6150_Some spinning cube popped up?01:03
polyphagiakk great01:03
polyphagiathen steam is the problem, your drivers are fine now01:03
gill6150_Okay, That's good.01:03
gill6150_What do i do about steam?01:03
gill6150_& Can i get out of the spinning cube?01:03
Umeaboygill6150_: Ask in #steamlug01:03
polyphagiagill6150_: use ctrl + c in the terminal01:03
gill6150_Umeaboy: might have too. :p01:03
polyphagiathat it's running in01:03
gill6150_Okay, thanks.01:04
gill6150_polyphagia: wafflejock thanks for the help, im asking over in steam01:06
polyphagiakk gl01:06
wafflejockgill6150_, yup good luck01:06
gill6150_Also, What's a good music radio on here?01:07
wafflejockgill6150_, rhythmbox is the default music player, pithos is a nice option for getting pandora streams01:08
gill6150_wafflejock: I could never get rhythmbox is work, not sure why.01:08
wafflejockgill6150_, check the ubuntu software center or in a terminal "sudo apt-get install pithos" check it out if you need to remove "sudo apt-get remove pithos"01:08
wafflejockgill6150_, yeah I'm not a huge rhthmbox fan either, it's okay though01:09
wafflejockgill6150_, Amarok was always kinda cool but also not super impressive and feels kinda heavy weight for what it is01:09
gill6150_Getting pithos, ill try it for now01:09
OsmodivsHi. I am in Ubuntu 12.04.5 32bits  I upgraded via Software Updater and I think it got stuck, its been like this for hours. It stuck in this part:   run-parts: executing /etc/kernel/postinst.d/zz-update-grub 3.2.0-85-generic /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-85-generic01:10
wafflejockgill6150_, guess kodi/xbmc are cool too if you have a media collection though and for other media streaming01:10
=== tarwater is now known as lazybugg
wafflejockgill6150_, xbmc (renamed kodi recently) is more of a windows media center kind of thing though, typically used for on a TV or the like so it takes over by default01:11
gill6150_wafflejock: That might be useful, but does pandora.com not work on steam?01:11
gill6150_Not sure why i said steam. :p01:11
wafflejockgill6150_, you can just use the site I just like having a separate client for controlling it so I can close out the browser if I need to01:11
wafflejockgill6150_, I do web dev stuff so I sometimes break my browser :)01:12
gill6150_The site keeps saying there a problem.01:12
gill6150_wafflejock: I'm just a basic user.01:12
gill6150_Wish I knew how to do web dev, programming, etc. lol01:12
wafflejockgill6150_, oh you may need Chrome to have flash01:12
wafflejockgill6150_, I just pulled it up here in Chrome01:12
gill6150_wafflejock: I downloaded flash for firefox.01:13
gill6150_wafflejock:  which btw took me about an hour.01:13
wafflejockgill6150_, yeah the Flash you can get for Linux is pretty out dated though, the one in Chrome (even on linux) is maintained by chrome itself and you get a newer version01:13
Ben64thats not how to get flash01:13
Ben64sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer01:14
wafflejockBen64, right but that installs what 11 and in Chrome I have Flash 1701:14
gill6150_Ben64: It's already the newest version01:15
izinucshow do I get irssi to ignore joins parts quits while in the channel?01:15
gill6150_wafflejock: So, How do i install chgrome?01:15
gill6150_sudo apt-get install chrome?01:15
Ben64wafflejock: i didn't say it was newer than chrome01:15
=== xangua1 is now known as xangua
wafflejockgill6150_, eh I'm gonna eat my words here just tried in FF with Flash 11 and that's working fine on pandora.com for me as well01:16
gill6150_haha, Alright. So maybe My computer is just shit & nothing will work. :p01:17
wafflejockgill6150_, you can install chromium using apt-get or the "software center" in the dash, you can get a .deb file for regular chrome from google but then don't get updates automatically01:17
Ben64actually, i think the deb installs the google ppa01:17
wafflejockgill6150_, if you went with chromium here's some quick instructions on adding Flash https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Chromium/Getting-Flash01:17
wafflejockBen42, ah yeah I think you're right01:17
wafflejockBen64, even01:18
Ben64same guy01:18
wafflejockah k01:18
gill6150_What's chormium?01:18
wafflejockgill6150_, just open source chrome typically slightly newer revision I don't think it departs too much though (from a user perspective feels mostly the same)01:18
RazzdollSI know this isnt #cairo-dock, but does anyone have experience with it? I cannot edit it and customize it with certain program icons, etc.01:19
gill6150_wafflejock: Wow, Ubuntu is confusing. I swear i've learned more in the past two days then i have my whole life using windows.01:20
wafflejockgill6150_, eh there is a learning curve to both it's just a lot of new stuff I'm sure and you're talking with relative geeks :)01:20
Ben64its not confusing, its just different. if you used linux your whole life windows would feel the same amount of confusing, or more01:20
izinucsgill6150_: and you won't ever stop learning .. it's an environment that foster exploration01:20
wafflejockgill6150_, I did Windows IT support so when you get in the depths of the registry and the various layers of application caches then linux is relatively simply organized01:21
gill6150_izinucs: I'm okay with always learning, i just want to know enough where i can download a simple program without asking 20 questions. :p01:21
wafflejockgill6150_, well apt-get is the main thing to learn here01:21
Ben64almost every program you'd need is in the software center01:21
wafflejocker software center to faces to the same thing01:21
gill6150_wafflejock: I've got that, i think01:21
Ben64much easier than going through googling, finding a download link, making sure its not a virus, etc01:21
izinucsgill6150_: it gets easier.. for the most part the repositories have most everything you need.  There are exceptions like chrome.. although chromium is installed which is the full opensource version of chrome.. no propiatory bits01:22
gill6150_Ben64: For someone that has always done that, not really.01:22
gill6150_Ben64: Not trying to bash, just comparing to what i know.01:22
jak2000i want add a user as sudoer, but cant: sudo vi /etc/sudoers dit an sae but cant save the message always is:  "E45: 'readonly' option is set (add ! to override)"  how to fix it?01:23
gill6150_izinucs: What does "no propiatory bits" mean?01:23
Ben64really? opening up the sofware center, typing in a program name and clicking install isn't easier than that?01:23
gill6150_Ben64: Talking more the "sudo apt-get" thing.01:23
Ben64has the same effect01:23
izinucsgill6150_: there is a mental shift.. it's aquard getting out of the "windows" mentality.. propiatory bits code that isn't opensource01:23
wafflejockgill6150_, yeah that's just something us who use the systems a lot use cause it's faster when you know the names of what you're looking for and you want to install a few things at once01:24
gill6150_izinucs: I figured i'd get on a few peoples nerves, but It'll take some time to adjust.01:24
polyphagiajak2000: use $ sudo adduser username sudo01:24
polyphagiathen relogin01:24
polyphagiayeah gill6150_ you'll find the programs that are annoying to install or don't work quite right are usually proprietary01:25
polyphagiaclosed source01:25
wafflejockgill6150_, also if you are remotely administering machines (which a good amount of us do) then you need to do it in the command line, also it's not different regardless of which graphical interface you're using (there are lots of graphical shells for linux)01:25
izinucsgill6150_: no worries.. everyone starts someplace.. I dropped my win machine for linux with one of the original ubuntu releases.. still feel like a novice01:25
gill6150_polyphagia:  makes sense, As linux is an open source01:25
gill6150_izinucs: Still got windows, Don't have the guts to drop it yet..01:25
wafflejockgill6150_, I held on for like 6 months before switching to just using windows in a virtual box when I need it01:26
psusijak2000, check dmesg for any disk errors that resulted in your filesystem being remounted read-only01:26
izinucsgill6150_: there's a tool for everything.. sometimes that tool is only available on windows (ie usually business apps).. but with my business I've found it easier on linux.. kde is my desktop of choice.01:26
polyphagiapsusi: i'm pretty sure it's just because he didn't use root to edit the file01:26
polyphagiabut using adduser is a much cleaner method then using visudo or something01:27
gill6150_wafflejock: I just have a dualboot. Debating on when I build my computer if im gonan do the dualboot or just windows or just linux.01:27
psusipolyphagia, he said he used sudo01:27
gill6150_izinucs:  What's kde?01:27
polyphagiai think that file may be special though psusi01:27
polyphagianeeds to be edited using visudo01:27
polyphagiabut adduser is simpler01:27
wafflejockgill6150_, yeah I like the Linux with windows in virtual box cause Linux boots fast and does 99% of what I need then if I need to test in IE or open a PSD or something I just start up the Windows vbox instance01:27
polyphagiaif cs2 is all you need, it works in wine01:28
izinucsgill6150_: what you look at for a gui is called the desktop.. there are many different ones to choose from.  kde is probably the easiest to use coming from windows.01:28
psusidoesn't have to be... yes, adding the user to the group is simpler, but the fact that he got a read only error editing a file as root points to the whole fs being read only01:28
gill6150_How would a windows in virtual box work?01:28
IRC84181kde is desktop environment01:28
IRC84181stands for k desktop environment01:28
psusiwhich means something bad happened01:28
IRC84181used to stand for kool desktop environment01:28
gill6150_izinucs:  & How do you change?01:28
polyphagiapsusi: i just don't think it's likely01:28
IRC84181gill6150 ^^ read01:28
IRC84181use apt-get install <desktop environment>01:29
IRC84181depends on environment though01:29
polyphagiathat file needs to be changed using visudo01:29
wafflejockgill6150_, it works well actually even with a intel laptop GPU I can run photoshop without a terrible amount of lag01:29
izinucsgill6150_: google kubuntu and you'll get some screen shots.. you can have 2 desktops installed at the same time if you want.. sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop.. then log out and there will be an option to switch to kde on the login screen01:29
gill6150_wafflejock: How would I go about that?01:29
gill6150_izinucs:  I really like that idea.01:29
polyphagiaKDE5 looks really great01:29
wafflejockgill6150_, just download VirtualBox from the software center, then you start up VirtualBox's management interface and hit new and creates a "virtual disk image" you can just follow the defaults basically for all of that01:30
gill6150_wafflejock: Thanks, & Downloading that desktop right now01:30
wafflejockgill6150_, I did a video here with virtual box at the beginning https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQNbsCTFrAA but I'm installing linux in a vbox in linux just to show people how to use vbox on whatever01:30
psusiroot can edit any file he wants... how do you think visodo manages to do it?  it just sudos to root and touches a lock file to prevent multiple people from doing it at the same time01:30
izinucsgill6150_: virtualbox is a whole nother adventure.. but works great01:30
gill6150_izinucs: I think i might be biting off more then i can chew.01:31
wafflejockgill6150_, wouldn't dive into everything at once take it slow but it's good to ask the questions when you're trying to figure out what to run01:31
gill6150_izinucs: wafflejock I've learned when i browse the web I use Ubuntu. It's WAY faster on my computer01:31
izinucsgill6150_: easier to just install kubutu-desktop. they (ubuntu and kubuntu) live easily together.. on boot you get to choose which one you want to use at that time.. switch back anytime01:32
wafflejockgill6150_, yeah it tends to use a lot less CPU doing background tasks, modern windows is constantly indexing things for search and just doing endless tasks01:32
gill6150_wafflejock: My computer has got so slow, I barley wanna play it anymore. I used to not lag when playing games, but now i do on the same games.01:33
jeeves_mossI'm following http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=263136, and I can't seem to join my wireless network.  is there a way to make the card connect with the ifconfig?01:34
wafflejockgill6150_, yeah somehow it seems every version of windows still suffers from bloat over time and slows down, maybe they'll change with Win10 but can discuss that in #ubuntu-offtopic if you want since it's not support and the ops here like to keep this room open for questions01:34
gill6150_wafflejock: My bad, i'll head over there01:35
IRC84181when you mount a partition eg /dev/sda1 with the /mnt part, the /mnt part is used as a reference point right?01:39
psusiIRC84181, define "reference point"01:39
IRC84181liek a shortcut that you can use for changing directory into via terminal, eg cd /mnt or chroot /mnt01:40
psusiIRC84181, not really.. that simply is the location where that filesystem *is*01:43
IRC84181ok thanks01:43
psusishortcut implies it actually is somewhere else01:44
histoirc8418 cd to the mount point is not chrooting there01:44
izinucsIRC84181: are you referring to .. say .. a usb sitck?  cd /media/<username> then ls to view what's there.. then cd <name-of-folder>01:47
IRC84181i know but i meant is it used as a reference point, like can you just use /mnt instead of /dev/sd[Xyz](eg dev/sda1)01:48
reisio/mnt would describe a path you'd mount a /dev/(ice) _to_01:48
reisiothe /mnt can be most anyplace01:48
reisio/dev/foo is how the system sees the device, and will change less frequently01:49

jeeves_mossreisio, I'm installing it on a BeagleBone Black.  storage is a concern.  I just need it to run a web interface, an on-screen keyboard, and use the resistive touch screen02:06
IRC84181its 50MB so can be installed almost anywhere02:06
reisioIRC84181: that's a distro, not a desktop environment02:06

reisiokrabador: just '3.14'?02:31
kittyfirekittyreisio yes, and i just said it'll take about 3 hours to download 438Mb, it says that if the utility they offer dosn't work, then to use the linuxliveusbcreator02:31
reisiokrabador: there should probably be a third version number02:32
reisiokittyfirekitty: I find it unlikely you used sysresccd's own custom imaging utility for sysresccd alone... for an ubuntu image already02:32

wafflejockgill6150, yeah at the initial login screen you should see a drop down with Unity and KDE in it now if you installed kubuntu desktop alongside the default Unity desktop02:34
krabadorreisio, major settings don't change between .1 and .202:34

zacharypchhi, i installed ubuntu 15.04 alongside windows 8 on a new laptop.  when I boot windows, windows takes over the bootloader and renders ubuntu not bootable.  I do unfortunately need both to work.  here is the paste from boot-repair:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/11486870/02:55
zacharypchi'd really appreciate any suggestions02:55

yamoonsunAm so confused, going to see if there's a clamav tutorial04:28
lotuspsychjeyamoonsun: man clamav in terminal to see start command04:29
lotuspsychjekarmeeko: dont think there's a codename yet04:29
lotuspsychjekarmeeko: but ive read articles, that will be the best ubuntu ever04:29
karmeekoHeh prolly assume shortly before 14.04 lts expires04:30
karmeekoI hope their upgrade process works better than 15.04 did for me04:30
yamoonsunDoes it automatically update?04:30
lotuspsychjeyamoonsun: you just installed, so should be up to date database04:31
lotuspsychjekarmeeko: well lts to lts should work smooth04:31
yamoonsunIf I run clamscan in the future, will it automatically update before scanning?04:32
lotuspsychjeyamoonsun: http://askubuntu.com/questions/114000/how-to-update-clamav-definitions-database04:33
lotuspsychjeyamoonsun: freshclam command shows in man clamav?04:34
yamoonsunAppreciate it, dude.04:34
lotuspsychjeyamoonsun: np :p04:34
knocktwicebojan: http://linuxcommand.org/learning_the_shell.php04:35
yamoonsunI should be able to just run 'clamscan /' as root right? That will scan the whole filesystem?04:36
lotuspsychjeyamoonsun: use sudo, not root04:37
yamoonsunWhat's the difference? lol04:38
lotuspsychje!sudo | yamoonsun04:38
ubottuyamoonsun: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo04:38
yamoonsunI mean, sudo vs sudo -i *shrugs*04:39
yamoonsunSame thing, no? I just have to type sudo less times?04:39
=== it is now known as Guest21485
knocktwiceif you only use sudo (not sudo -i) you are less likely to shoot yourself in the foot04:40
knocktwicethen again, in '96 I deleted my system with a poorly place rm -rf, and I've been careful ever since04:41
knocktwiceso there's some good things that come from shooting yourself in the foot04:41
=== jackie is now known as Guest12865
yamoonsunI love that command - Used to troll people in image boards with it.04:42
knocktwicemy fingers get scared when I start typing it.04:42
knocktwiceactually the biggest danger of running around as root is creating files with the wrong owner.04:43
=== miguel_ is now known as Guest83610
yamoonsunWhat do you mean? Example?04:45
knocktwiceIf something doesn't need to be owned by root, it shouldn't be.  That can be a security hole.04:47
lotuspsychjeknocktwice: +104:47
knocktwiceIf a script is owned by root and executable, and someone gets access to it, instant root access.04:47
yamoonsunFair enough =304:50
yamoonsunHow do you show a process in terminal after you've closed the terminal it was previous in?05:00
knocktwiceHm..  oridinarily if you ran a program from a terminal, then close the terminal, all the programs that came from that terminal are killed.05:01
knocktwicethere are plenty of exceptions though.  'ps ax' and 'top' come to mind... but once a program is disassociated from the terminal I don't think there's a way to find its history.05:02
yamoonsunClamscan appears to be running in the background, so I just did sudo kill clamscan05:02
yamoonsunStill seems to be running05:02
knocktwicekill needs a pid05:02
yamoonsunI won't recognize the 'command'? I'll try the pid05:03
yamoonsunThat did it, but it's still odd that it didn't close by command05:04
knocktwicelately there's been a nasty bout of people writing programs that respawn when killed.  I think that's poor form.05:04
knocktwicekill -9 should mean 'die now'05:04
robhol"die and, this should really go without saying, freaking STAY dead"05:05
knocktwiceit's called SIGKILL for a reason, after all05:07
snkcldyes but to be killed does not mean to be reaped05:18

dStructquick question for you guys relating to SSH, I have a -L local port forward I use and I fully understand I could simply script something up in say Bash to shorten my command string up, however is there a way I could automatically setup a port forward when the user logs in, say using command= in my authorized_hosts perhaps?14:46
SchrodingersScatdStruct: could that be something for cron? or may be other startup script methods14:48
dStructSchrodingersScat: I guess my question is more, how can you "add" a port forward to an existing SSH session?  is there some command line magic to make that happen?14:49
SchrodingersScatdStruct: oh, not afaik after it's connected14:49
dStructSchrodingersScat: maybe my question is better asked in #OpenSSH as the only way I can find to initiate a port forwarding is via initial command line from the client connecting in14:50

dStructsomsip: hmm interesting, i'll have to check into that..14:54
somsipdStruct: ControlMaster14:55
dStructioria: I don't believe that would work for my topology, I have basically a public server with firewalled ports, and I use SSH tunnelling to gain access from various clients across the interwebs from somewhat random IPs14:55
ioriadStruct, i see14:56
dStructioria: unless you can see a way to do what your link suggests without 3 hosts..14:56

voiterhow do i install gtodo? https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/precise/gtodo/14:58
somsipdStruct: I've used it for multiple connections before I discovered tmux. So I'd connect to a server, slowly through negotiation. Second ssh to same server would be instant. No idea if it helps you on your query any14:58
dStructsomsip: sorta, basically I just want when I SSH into this server once I'm authenticated it will automatically build my tunnel/port forward, essentially just simplifying my ssh user@host -i /what/ever/key14:59
somsipdStruct: I understand, but have no idea if it will work like that which is why I pointed at the man page14:59
jpdsdStruct: You want to SSH to a host, via another host?14:59

mgolischdid you select an image?15:13
mgolischapplication images are usualy in /usr/share/pixmaps/15:14
Razzdollmgolisch, I selected the program in /usr/bin itself. Cairo will only let me select one command line (image or application path).15:14

blackflowGuys, why is Steam not available through Ubuntu Software Center? I type in "Steam" in the search bar, and it doesn't give me something to install (yes, I know I can use command line apt-get).17:00
blackflowThis is on 15.0417:00
OerHeks!find steam17:02
ubottuFound: steam, W:, W:, W:17:03
OerHeksit is in the multiverse repo17:03
blackflowOerHeks: I have that enabled17:04
OerHeksmaybe the partner/nonfree ?17:05
blackflowOerHeks: I do get the icon in the Ubuntu Software Center when I searh for Steam, but when I click it I only get a "More Info" button, no install.17:06
blackflowand IIRC it was fully installable like that when I tried it last time in 14.04, I wonder what changed. I see I can download and start the launcher from steampowered.com17:06
OerHeksthe steam package is just a installer of the steam.deb from their website. that deb installs a package and adds a repo to your sources17:07
OerHeksso if you take the one from the website, it is fine17:07

wafflejockbishops, did you do a big update to the system recently including any kernel updates you're aware of or might have happened since last rebooting or is this a persistent problem?17:54
wafflejockbishops, it seems we may have lost the top part of your intended paste as well but the missing USB device got me to a thread where the issue was solved by a reboot and was due to some kernel updates that hadn't fully taken effect17:55

lambduAlright, thanks for the help guys :)19:13
MonkeyDustbray90820  yes19:14
bray90820MonkeyDust: What I want is for the source and destination to be a mirror of each other but not delete anything if the drive goes down if that's possible19:15
tgm4883bray90820: then you need to craft your rsync command/script to ensure the drive is up19:15
OerHeksbray90820, don't touch the --delete option then19:16
tgm4883bray90820: either A) put it in a script that checks if the drive is up first (maybe it looks for something that is always there), or B) (untested) you have the content of the drive be a folder deep on the drive, then if the folder doesn't exist (because the drive isn't mounted) rsync should (in theory) just error out19:17
superbuntubray90820,  add a test condition before executing your rsync command is another way?19:17

ock_Hi Bashing-om , I have a normal Bios system. I followed the instruction guides on the offical website and loaded the iso data on a usb stick(16gb). When i start my system i can choose several options like "try ubunutu" or "install"21:32
pertplushi, is it normal that certain folders in / have an older date than the date i installed the system?21:32
pertplusi.e. the /srv/, /mnt/ and /selinux/ folders have dates from 2012 even though the rest have the date in 2013 i installed the system21:33
ock_The problem is, if i choose install i can choose the language, connect to wifi and choose the installation i want(alongside windows). But i cant clikc Next/continue , only continue by restart.21:33
geniipertplus: That's entirely normal.21:33
ock_and then it all begins from the beginning21:34
reisioutu8o: problem with their website21:34
pertplusgenii: why does it do this? related to when the install cd was prepared, or ?21:34
sebastien__EriC^^, it's updating, i have a bad connection... lol21:34
almarkock_  there should be some partition option stuff afaik21:35
geniipertplus: The files preserve the timestamp of when they were created, which means their original creation date, not when they were copied someplace21:35
geniipertplus: Their timestamps only usually change if they are altered21:35
ock_alamark: yea it should ... that part is missing :/ and i have no clue why21:36
almarkperhaps your installer media is faulty sortof ock_21:37
Bashing-omock_: That is a strange issue. NOT normal ... Maybe we best look at what the hard drive partitoning is presently ? In "try ubuntu" mode activate GParted and show us a screenshot from the utility depicting the hard drive that you will install ubuntu onto .21:38
pertplusgenii : i see, thank you21:39

ock_Bashing-om: yes 3 packets transmitted, 3 received21:50
reisioutu8o: try using freshplayer21:50
OerHeksock_, oke then there might be an other problem, you cannot install alongside windows, did you make space for ubuntu? from within windows preferrably21:52
Bashing-omock_: Good, we are back to examining the hard drive, see if we can spot a problem; a screenshot from GParted ( partition editor) is the fastest means to 'see' .21:52
OerHeksyeah, 4 primairy maybe21:52
ock_OerHeks: I did no space for ubuntu, just tried with "alongside windows", but there is enough space on my harddrive21:54
ock_Bashing-om: im going too install it and make a screenshot21:54

sebastien__Bashing-om, talking with french in ubuntu-fr. a bit easier to me22:06
Bashing-omock_: OK, the problem is that there is a 4 primary partition limit in the bios partitioning shceme. Windows presently occupies all 4 of them . Will have to xfer the data from one of those partitions, and repurpose that partition as an 'extended' partiton and in this container make provision for ubuntu .22:06

bvHi, I want to increase a value for each found file. I tried: `find . -name "*.ext" -exec echo $i; i=$((i + 1)) \;` but it didn't work. Any suggestions?22:14
Bashing-omock_: Often times the partions are labeled. linux terminal command ' sudo fdisk -lu ' may reveal that there is a "recovery partition" that you could copy off to a DVD. Repurpose that partition for ubuntu . - is but one way .22:15
bvSorry, I tried this" `find . -name "*.ext" -exec bash -c "echo $i && i=$((i + 1))" \;`22:15

ock_Bashing-om: I still have a Laptop with Windows. I spend too much time for gaming anyway... so i would be able to concentrate more on programming and learning.22:27
sebastien__EriC^^, also tried, and then nothing cause "no package pam_kwallet" found22:27
Bashing-omock_: For a 'beginner' you have the right of it . Dual boot Windows and ubuntu . Whne comfortable with ubuntu, then dump Windows .22:27
EriC^^sebastien__: it's pam-kwallet not pam_kwallet22:27
sebastien__EriC^^, really?22:27
almarkBashing-om imo the unity interface is more straigtforward than windows22:28
Bashing-omock_: Outstanding then to use this machine solely for ubuntu and learning ! .. I then have no reservations .22:28
sebastien__EriC^^, oh god... it's done. i check22:28
sebastien__EriC^^, ew, still the same black screen and back to the login22:29
EriC^^sebastien__: check /var/log/auth.log22:29
almarkock_ it's weird to have a complete linux on a ntfs fs though22:29
EriC^^same error?22:29
Bashing-omalmark: ock_ I so have a high degree of appreciation for the unity interface . But does not fit my meager work flow . I boot to terminal myself.22:30
ock_Bashing-om: Hmm when you guys say so its maybe not such a good idea to do that22:30
EriC^^sebastien__: try sudo apt-get install libpam-gnome-keyring22:31
almarkif you really want to get the feeling of unix/linux you shouldn't have ntfs ock_22:32
Bashing-omock_: When I relooked, I did see partitions as NTFS and then I saw " /media/ubuntu/XXXX " Beats me how things are working on this hard drive. ubuntu file system is ext4 by default; Windows is NTFS .22:33
EriC^^that's the live session i think22:33
ock_almark: so thats a against Windows and linux at the same time right? :)22:34
ock_Bashing-om: I have no idea to be honest...22:35
Bashing-omEriC^^: Thanks, IF the liveUSB is 'sda' then that will go a long way in expalining, huh ?22:35
sebastien__EriC^^, nothing new with the libpam22:35
almarkwell you can have a windows ntfs partition and a linux partion if you want22:35
sebastien__and now in the auth.log, the issue has changed22:35
EriC^^Bashing-om: where's the link you guys are talking about?22:35

Bashing-omEriC^^: ock_ Attempting to install ubuntu to hard drive .22:36
EriC^^that looks like the hard disk, from gparted booted in a live session22:37
sebastien__EriC^^, lightdm : pam_ck_connectore (lightdm-greeter:session): pam_kwallet : open_session called without kwallet_key22:37
EriC^^and the hdd's are mounted by the try ubuntu user22:37
EriC^^ock_: do you need any info from windows? if not just install ubuntu as usual22:38
ock_EriC^^: so its normal?22:38
EriC^^ock_: yeah, you still have the ntfs partitions of windows22:38
sebastien__EriC^^, requirement "user ingroup nopasswdlogin" not met by user "sebastien"22:38
EriC^^but it looks like you merged your windows install to the "boot"  partition windows has ( just a guess )22:39
ock_EriC^^: I dont need22:39
EriC^^ock_: ok, then just install as usual22:39
EriC^^"wipe hdd and install ubuntu"22:39
EriC^^sebastien__: i think it would be solved if you added your user to autologin22:40
EriC^^as a temporary fix22:40
ock_EriC^^: Sorry , i wanted to say : Win7 was preinstalled on my PC. I would install it as ususal but Bashing-om suggested me not to do it because it will be quite a shock22:40
Bashing-omEriC^^: ock_ That is all true, but IF 'sda' is the hard drive AND all partitions are NTDS, I get concerned seeing the mount points for 3 partitions as "/media/ubuntu" . Not what I had expected to see; for an internal hard drive .22:40
EriC^^sebastien__: it would login by itself without a password when ubuntu starts22:40
gh0striderhey guys i have a weird problem that just started occuring...22:41
EriC^^Bashing-om: those are partitions he's mounted in nautilus i think22:41
gh0striderokay so when i try to log into ubuntu 14.04 from the gui login screen when i enter the password the screen flashes the background changes and then it goes back to login screen22:41
gh0striderit does not say invalid password22:41
EriC^^Bashing-om: he's not installed ubuntu yet, you mean it's odd that he can mount the recovery partition from nautilus?22:42
gh0striderwhat is weird is that i can use the "guest login" and it loads my desktop manager22:42
gh0striderbut for some reason i can't log in as my regular user...22:42
EriC^^gh0strider: type ls -ld ~/.Xauthority after pressing ctrl+alt+f1 and logging in22:42
knocktwicegh0strider: sounds like your window manager is crashing.22:42
Bashing-omEriC^^: Nah, all explained now to my simple mind . I can now understand what I am looking at from your description .22:43
gh0striderknocktwice: okay i just logged in...22:43
nicomachushey guys, I just got done upgrading to 15.04 from 14.10, and rebooted. But now I'm stuck on GRUB22:43
gh0strideri keep getting this message pop up22:43

ock_Bashing-om: EriC^^ i rebooted and made another screenshot: imgur.com/XevK8yp22:44
knocktwicegh0strider: I seem to remember having a similar problem -- something to do with a new kernel module to handle new out-of-band bus interfaces22:45
knocktwicegh0strider: but I don't think that's related to the WM crashing.22:45
gh0striderokay i am going to try to disable that with the blacklist22:45
gh0striderlet me run the command you said first..22:46
Bashing-omock_: Yeah, that is more in-line with what I expect to see. We still have that 4 primary partition limit . Will have to make provisions to install ubuntu .22:46
gh0striderknocktwice: after running the ls =ld ~/.Xauthority22:46
gh0striderhere is the output22:46
knocktwicegh0strider: yeah, I've blacklisted the mei-me module22:47
gh0strider-rw----- 1 root root /home/user/.Xauthority22:47
EriC^^ghostwalker: ok, type sudo chown <your user>: ~/.Xauthority22:47
EriC^^sebastien__: you there?22:48
ock_Bashing-om: Is there a way to delete one Partition (i dont think i need the recovery anymore, because i can get a license) and "get some" storage from another partiton without to delete something? ^22:48
gh0striderknocktwice: do you know how to restart the modprobe file blacklist.conf so i can stop getting those annoying outputs of mei_me22:49
knocktwicegh0strider: not off hand, no.22:49
nicomachus_repeating my question just because I dropped my connection: hey guys, I just got done upgrading to 15.04 from 14.10, and rebooted. But now I'm stuck on GRUB22:50
nicomachus_I think this happened when I upgraded to 14.04. but I don't remember what I did to reload grub22:50
bray90820If I was gonna setup a con job to happen every 12 hours would I have to setyo one for 0:00 and another one for 12:0022:51
knocktwicegh0strider: try modprobe --remove mei-me22:51
Bashing-omock_: Best paractice is to cipy off the "recovery partition" . delete it in Windows, defrag twice, chkisk twice. Then in that unallocatd space in ubuntu installer, install to that unallocated space.22:51

gh0striderknocktwice: do you think the .Xauthority file got changed when i did a system upgrade?22:53
bray90820Wouldn't that only happen once a day thi22:53
EriC^^bray90820: no, every 12 hours22:53
almarki keep a very small windows pc for stuff that i use that only runs on xp/722:53
bray90820EriC^^: so it's not what time but how often?22:53
EriC^^bray90820: you can set the time, or use */ which means every , like */4 * * * * means every 4 mins22:54

bray90820EriC^^: Thanks23:05
Bashing-omock_: I was on smoke break, Yeah in Windows is a "check disk" command 'chkdsk" (?) . Run it twice to make sure Windows partition table is intact .23:06
ock_Bashing-om: Oh okay, found it. automatic correction i guess?23:08
Bashing-omock_: Unable to advise on that, as it has been years since I booted Windows . My memory will fail on Windows commands .23:09
ock_Bashing-om: Okay :) I think it worked, no i have a completly empty drive, ready too use.23:10
Bashing-omock_: Then just "erase disk and install ubuntu' option will work nicely for your use case .23:12
sebastien__EriC^^, instead of my password, there is a "log in" button, but still nothing happen :/23:12
Bashing-omock_: ^^ caveat I am looking at "  completly empty drive " , such that Windows is no longer a consideration .23:14

ock_Bashing-om: As was should i use this partition im now creating? Fat16,32 ext4?23:34
Bashing-omock_: How much ? as there was a small amount of 'free space' prior to removing the recovery partition. We do not want to confuse with that 1.00MiB space .23:35
Bashing-omock_: The installer will take care of formatting the partition . The default is ext4 .23:36
ock_Bashing-om: Yea the  freespace is 42949 MB , so it worked. What type of partition should i make? Primary or Logical? And as what should i use it-> Ext4,Ext3...Fat16/Fat32?23:37
ock_Bashing-om: okay ext4.23:39
Bashing-omock_: I do expect the installer to take care of these details, but the partition will be "extended" and in this extended partition will be a minimum of a '/' and 'swap' partitions of type "logical"23:39

Bashing-omock_: Just to make sure we are always on the same page :) .23:49
Bashing-omphix: Can you boot to the grub menu ? and from there -> advanced options -> recovery mode ?23:50
phixBashing-om: nope, no grub23:51
ock_Bashing-om: Thanks A LOT!! Installing right now :)23:51
Bashing-omphix: backup a bit, then, and regroup . Is this an UEFI system ?23:51
phixBashing-om: Toshiba L650, it may be an ACPI issue so I am trying to apply an updated BIOS however I cannot find a flashing tool for it that will run off a boot disc / win pe image23:52
phixBashing-om: no23:52
Bashing-omock_: See ya on the other side !23:52
phixBashing-om: 14.04 LTS worked on it23:52
Bashing-omphix: Humm .. Dual booting and both systems are installed onto the same hard drive ?23:53
phixI am not dual booting23:54
phixI installed 14.04 first, it ran fine then I applied the 14.10 update, rebooted and black screen23:54
Bashing-omphix: Let's see if we can get ya to the grub menu . Reboot and as soon as the bios screen clears depress and hold the right shift key -> grub menu . Yes ?23:55
phixBashing-om: I tried using flashrom to update BIOS but it recommends I don't use it23:55
Bashing-omphix: Flashing rom is done from a DOS base . OEMs do not support us in that respect .23:56
phixBashing-om: I don't have a flashing tool23:56
phix(that will work in DOS, the one that Toshiba ships requires windows with VC++ and other unneeded libraries for a flashing tool)23:58
Bashing-omphix: IF ( and you are aware there is hazard in this ) you want to flash your bios there are ways to do it by building a DOS disk to do so .23:58
phixBashing-om: ok where do i get the flash tool from?23:58
ock_Bashing-om: again thanks a lot and good night. youre the real mvp - greeting from europe.23:59
