digitalvaldostaEriC^^ I do have another drive that I could make an IMG file to that is more reliable00:39
daftykinsEriC^^: depends if you have the time to help through a ddrescue or similar, the trouble is the actions of reading this disk will likely push it over the edge and finish it off00:39
daftykinsso it depends if digitalvaldosta is willing to take that risk00:39
EriC^^daftykins: oh ok00:40
daftykinsyou could just keep trying the superblocks in order until one works, if you're super brave? :)00:40

EsoRoticaDesktop Thinkcentre m91p00:45
daftykinsdigitalvaldosta: yeah extended is just a placeholder for logical drives (sda5) so no worries there, but sounds like you've got a one partition setup as sda5 might be swap and sda1 / ?00:46

digitalvaldostadaftykins sda5 is the locked partition which contains the install of linux. Yeah I encrypted everything.00:47
daftykinsoh encryption :<00:47
EsoRoticadaftykins: Sorry, I installed with updates, Likely meaning that the kernel is not the same as the install media00:47

digitalvaldostadaftykins, EriC^^ asked if I had ran 'sudo dumpe2fs /dev/mapper/mint-root00:59
digitalvaldostadaftykins I hadn't on this boot but have quite a bit of info now that i have ran it.01:00
daftykinsah ok01:00
EsoRoticadaftykins: Maybe this is a problem best solved with chroot and updates?01:00
daftykinsEsoRotica: you could boot the live session then, chroot the install... lol yes01:00
daftykinsthat's what i'd try.01:00
EsoRoticaOkay, to be sure we're on the same page, make a dir with proc, sys, and dev. the mount --bind the respective directories?01:01
ubottuA chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot01:01
EsoRoticaThanks boss.01:01
daftykinsfully detailed there01:01
hr49__Hey all. I'm having some difficulty getting lightdm to work with xfce4 from Minimal CD. (manual package installation) When I try to logon from lightdm, it reports that it cannot start the session, but I can still start xfce with startx.01:02
EsoRoticadaftykins: Hmm, last time I did this, it was far less steps :)01:02
daftykinsyeah all that extra mount stuff seems to have grown01:03
daftykinsno idea why01:03
daftykinshr49__: have you at any point run 'sudo startx' out of desperation perhaps?01:04
Jordan_Udigitalvaldosta: I'll second the statement that for very important data you should probably leave recovery to the professionals with special *hardware* based tools for recovery, but that said GNU ddrescue is probably about the best you can get for software based recovery of data from failing drives. I would recommend making an image of the entire drive with GNU ddrescue (not to be confused with the inferior but similarly ...01:04
Jordan_U... named dd_rescue).01:05
digitalvaldostaEriC^^ the last time I ran that command (before I got on this chat) this is how I ran it>> sudo dumpe2fs -f /dev/sdb1 | grep -i superblock01:05
hr49__daftykins: No, I've always invoked it without sudo.01:05
digitalvaldostaEriC^^ should I run it this way again but for /dev/mapper/mint-root ?01:06
gagaliciousdaftykins : #docker is quiet01:06
gagaliciousinstead of import export save and load the docker containers.. is it possible that i copy AUFS /mnt/docker to another /mnt/aufs and then i restore with /mnt/aufs -> /mnt/docker... will it still work that way? else what COW file system will work this way?. i mean rsyncing instead of dd01:06

EriC^^digitalvaldosta: i've no experience with that, ask daftykins or Jordan_U01:08
gagaliciousdaftykins : thanks! that's great thing i didnt know01:09
daftykinsJordan_U: if you're active i think you may be better for today's data recovery ticket ^01:09
Jordan_Ugagalicious: Since the S.M.A.R.T data said that your drive is failing (according to others in the channel, I didn't look at it myself) you should *not* be using fsck. With a failing drive you want to stop writing to the drive in any way, and simply make an image of it somewhere else. Then, if needed, you can do an fsck against the image.01:10
digitalvaldostaThanks EriC^^. I just ran it anyways and am able to get the superblock numbers. I will take the risk and attempt to recover them. Thanks also daftykins.01:11
Jordan_Udigitalvaldosta: *NO*01:11
daftykinsi think i mentioned the risk but it was deemed worthy of trying *shrug*01:11
daftykinsin my opinion even imaging up is going to risk the disk01:11
gagaliciousJordan_U : my hdd is not failing01:11
digitalvaldostaJordan_U you have a better idea?01:11
daftykinsgagalicious: he mixed up users is all01:11
Jordan_Ugagalicious: OK, that changes things entirely. My entire objection was based on that.01:12
daftykinsJordan_U: you are correct, but it's for digitalvaldosta01:12
Jordan_Udigitalvaldosta: Since the S.M.A.R.T data said that your drive is failing (according to others in the channel, I didn't look at it myself) you should *not* be using fsck. With a failing drive you want to stop writing to the drive in any way, and simply make an image of it somewhere else. Then, if needed, you can do an fsck against the image.01:13

daftykinsnp :>01:13
EsoRoticadaftykins: Thanks for the help. Just a quick question on these notes for basic chroot, it says lucid and i386, should these not reference Trusty and amd64 for me?01:13
digitalvaldostaJordan_U should I dd or ddrescue to a .img file on an external HDD? I have a 500GB that is newer and reliable.01:14
daftykinsEsoRotica: err the architecture and dist name doesn't bear any relevance to a bunch of mount commands01:14
blzDoes anybody here have experience with setting up a deluge thinclient?  I've followed the instructions on their website and I can log into the web UI, but not via the connection manager of a local GTK client.01:14
Jordan_Udigitalvaldosta: Yes. And you should use GNU ddrescue rather than plain dd. Also make sure that you create a log with ddrescue.01:15
EsoRoticadaftykins: Right on. Just unfamiliar with debootstrap. almost there01:15
daftykinswhen does it say something about debootstrap? o001:15
digitalvaldostaNot sure how to do that Jordan_U01:15
Jordan_Udigitalvaldosta: The GNU ddrescue manual is very good, if you have the time I highly recommend reading sections 1,2,3,4,5 and 7. http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/manual/ddrescue_manual.html01:18

EsoRoticadaftykins: I think I would have been better off trying what I knew first :P almost there01:19
daftykinsEsoRotica: oh you don't want to do any of that crap, just start from "setting up the chroot"01:19
XLVanyone else facing the problem of "acpi pcc probe fail starting option 219" problem with 15.04 and nvidia gpus?01:20
daftykinshmm someone seems to have edited that post to make it less useful01:20
hr49__XLV: yes; from my understanding, it's harmless01:21
Jordan_Udigitalvaldosta: You're welcome. For your purposes, if the LUKS partition takes up most of the drive, I would make an image of the entire drive rather than a single partition. Among other things, that makes it easy to start the image up in a VM later, or restore it to another drive which you can then boot from and use.01:21
EsoRoticadaftykins: Looks like it wants the bin dir too?01:21
XLVhr49__, unless in my case, it really stopped the booting process... fixed it with installing a v4.0 kernel01:21
XLVhr49__, so for future reference, this one http://askubuntu.com/questions/613969/acpi-ppc-probe-failed-starting-version-219-nvidia/614737#614737 works01:23
EsoRoticadaftykins: I've created a dir which has mount -o bind cat proc sys bin  to my chroot dir, Then when I sudo chroot that dir it says failed to run /bin/bash01:23
daftykinsEsoRotica: what partitions does your install have? mount / to /mnt - then *after* you do proc and sys inside it01:24
hr49__XLV: oh, you don't have nomodeset in your grub. I guess a kernel upgrade is another solution.01:24
daftykinsorder being super important01:24
hr49__or do you boot to nomodeset?01:25
=== sl0wz is now known as slowz
EsoRoticadaftykins:  Ah.01:25
XLVhr49__, no, havent tried nomodeset, will try it now with the older v3.19 kernel01:26
daftykins__Myst__: can't see it!01:27
hr49__XLV: yeah, that makes sense; this is a kernel issue01:27
gagaliciousis it possible for multiple client computers to share one nfs host?01:27
hr49__so I guess it works at some point b/n 3.19 and 4.001:27
Jordan_Udigitalvaldosta: Once you have an image saved you can try some recovery on a completely read only copy of it by running "sudo losetup -r /dev/loop0 /path/to/disk.image" then "sudo kpartx -a /dev/loop0". The first command will make a read only loopback device pointing to the image, and the second will make it possible to access partitions on the image via /dev/mapper/loop0pX.01:27
hr49__I remember looking into this when trying to run nouveau, since it beds KMS01:28
hr49__thus nomodeset disabled nouveau01:28
EsoRoticadaftykins: LOL! I chrooted the thumbstick. I'm a genious today01:29
hr49__so yeah, it works on some newer dusts,with Brewer kernel01:29
__Myst__in cron, 0 * * * * is equal to every hour01:29
hr49__anyways, are there any packages required to get lightdm to work with xfce besides those two packages and their dependencies?01:31
daftykinsEsoRotica: 8D01:31
XLVhr49__, hmm, it doesnt work.. tries to load xserver but dumps me again into the gdm01:32
XLVvery borky update, this one to 15.04.. perhaps a clean install would fare better?01:33

pavlos__Myst__, yes ... the columns are: min hour dayofmonth month dayofweek command01:33
hr49__also, what is the Xubuntu minimal installation on the live CD? (versus Xubuntu-desktop)01:33
hr49__XLV: no idea; nomodeset has always worked for me01:34
XLVhr49__, nouveau runs fine.. its the nvidia binary ones that fail in my case01:34

hr49__heh I can't get nouveau to run myself01:35
hr49__although I have no reason to want it01:35

daftykinsEsoRotica: wat? tell me specifically what you type...01:39
EsoRoticadaftykins: one moment. let me cancel current command01:39
EsoRoticasu user \ sudo apt-get update  -> Sufe Eddective uid is not 0, is /usr/bin/sudo01:40
EsoRoticaon a file system  with the nosuid option set?01:40
hr49__is there any special configuration needed for lightdm with xfce when installed from packages?01:40
daftykinsyeah you don't 'su user' because root should not have a password01:40
EsoRoticasorry, sufe eddective == sudo : effective user id not 001:41
daftykinsunless you're breaking ubuntu's core principles :)01:41
EsoRoticadaftykins: doesnt chroot in its very concept break that? Do i need to mount /usr to the chroot as well?01:41
EsoRoticaKeep im mind this is because I've switched to the user of the system01:42
daftykins'chroot' refers to the root file system, not users01:42
hr49__if I'm having issues with lightdm, should I try gdm? or is that deprecated?01:42
EsoRoticadaftykins: It pops me into the command line as root@ubuntu... so...01:42
EsoRoticaI think that was my confusion, Thanks.01:43
daftykinsyeah so you chroot as root, but you don't do any user switching shenanigans01:43
happyfr0ggIf I remove/purge lightdm, will gdm automatically take over?01:43
daftykinsmy bad i forgot the context of the task so of course you'd be root01:43
Jordan_Uhr49__: GDM is not deprecated (it's still the official login manager for the GNOME project, even if Ubuntu doesn't use it by default).01:43
EsoRoticaNo big, I'll ping you when the dist-upgrade is complete.01:43

happyfr0ggI mean will GDM automatically take over (no longer running lightdm or lightdm-gtk-greeter).01:49

ablest1980when i had windows on this system it did its a amd/ati drivers02:01
daftykinsi doubt from print-screen pressing02:01
daftykinsablest1980: so you're installing AMD graphics drivers with the hope to control CPU speed...02:01
xanguaHoloIRCUser2: like support for millions of hardware¿02:02
dhrosai'm on a high DPI screen and have the opposite problem most peopel seeem to have? my chrome addres bars are GINORMOUS, like 1/5 of the screen height, and my emacs has a ginormous font02:02
dhrosathi happens at full resolution (3200x1800) and also at just (1920x1080)02:02
ablest1980yes because in windows the amd/ati drivers had that option02:02
HoloIRCUser2Yes xangua ... And driver installation headach02:02
dhrosait's not consistent between programs either02:02
daftykinsablest1980: no this is silly, why do you want this CPU control? it should already be happening...02:02
ablest1980it was a cpu slider thing from 800 to 1900mhz02:03
daftykinsCPUs are load adaptive02:03

dhrosaanyone know how to fix the DPI issues, or at least which folders I want to nuke to delete all display/gnome/unity settings and start over?02:03
daftykinsablest1980: open a terminal and run this: watch -n 0.1 'cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -i mhz'02:03
ablest1980i had that02:04
daftykinsablest1980: you should see the clocks change based on load (i.e. activity)02:04

hr49__so, I could neither start xfce through lighten or terminal02:12
EsoRoticaablest1980: There is a save file button.02:12
hr49__now, when the nvidia drivers weren't installed, I could use startx02:12
daftykinsablest1980: your idea of forcing the CPU to a specific speed to benefit a game is 100% wrong02:13

nicomachushm.. if I install ubuntu on an external hdd--not a live version, a full install--will it have a boot sector?02:31
hr49__which begs the question of how xubuntu-desktop makes it work02:31
daftykinsnicomachus: yip02:31
EsoRoticadaftykins: Still complains about /dev/null ><02:32
daftykinsdid you mount actual /dev to chroot/mount/point/dev ?02:32
nicomachusdaftykins: I tried to use it to boot an unresponsive computer and it said "no boot sector" and refused to boot it. but I can boot my laptop from it... but it still goes to GRUB2 and shows my laptop's HD partitions along with the external HD partitions02:33
daftykinsEsoRotica: read this http://aaronbonner.io/post/21103731114/chroot-into-a-broken-linux-install02:33
EsoRoticadaftykins: mount -o bind /media/ubuntu/uuid/dev /mnt/chroot/dev02:34
nicomachushm... he's where I was last week. hope you don't have full-disk encryption, EsoRotica, getting chroot gets more complicated then.02:34
EsoRoticanicomachus: Nah, too much work to maintain02:34
Jordan_Unicomachus: If you install Ubuntu for UEFI then it won't have any boot sector, as UEFI doesn't use boot sectors but rather files in a fat filesystem.02:34
nicomachusgods... agreed.02:34
daftykinsEsoRotica: nooo, /dev - the one from the live session02:35
EsoRoticaokay, i see.02:35
nicomachusJordan_U: I didn't. It was ntfs, the linux partition on it is ext402:35
Jordan_Unicomachus: So both computers are BIOS based?02:36
hr49__okay, so doing startx starts gnome, so no good. doing xfdesktop tells me that it can't parse arguments (none provided) and open a display02:37
Jordan_Unicomachus: Some broke BIOSs refuse to boot drives that don't have an "active" partition. If you don't currently have any partitions set as "active", try setting a primary partition (doesn't even matter which one) as "active" in fdisk and see if your BIOS will boot it then.02:37
nicomachusI see... the BIOS on the unresponsive pc won't boot from USB, so I'm using plop boot-manager on a cd to boot the HDD. so that could be it.02:38
daftykinsnicomachus: so you finished that rsync, what's the general task here?02:39
daftykinssurely you're not giving someone a machine booting an external disk XD02:39
nicomachusdaftykins: rsync was apparently too much for the old girl. it froze up on a file for 10 minutes, then rebooted, and wasn't able to resume because live disk.02:40
daftykinsthat disk could have issues, have you checked the SMART info?02:40
nicomachusI wasn't able to unwrap the passphrase after that to remount the encrypted partition, I'm afraid it's all corrupted.02:41
nicomachusand SMART said it was fine a week ago... haven't checked it since the fail. but it's not even 3 months old, brand new Toshiba from MicroCenter. I'll check here in a sec02:41
EsoRoticanicomachus: hence my fears of full disk encryption02:42
nicomachusand hence my newfound agreement with you.02:42
daftykinspersonally i'm not afraid of my cat pics getting into the wrong hands02:42
nicomachusit's mostly music, movies and tv shows... but I selected full-disk encryption when I did the initial format/partition/install02:43
nicomachusand there was no going back from there. :/02:43
hr49__is there a way to use gem without gnome?02:43

hr49__daftykins, exactly along the lines of what I was looking for02:46
nicomachusonce again, I am not a smart man.02:46

MarloweI have some questions about how to make a USB bootable. Is anyone able to help, please?05:05
ubottuFor information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent05:06
MarloweI don't want to make Ubuntu bootable from a USB.05:07
MarloweI am having hard drive issues, and need to put the Western Digital diagnostic tools on a USB.05:07
MarloweThe only instructions I have involve using a windows utility to make a bootable USB, and adding the WD files.05:07
MarloweI can't do that on Ubuntu, and I don't know how to make just a plain old bootable USB so I can run these tools.05:08
MarloweIs that something anyone can aid me with?05:09
lokoumI think it would be better to plug your hard drive in USB and work with an another windows05:09

lotuspsychje!mint | bilal05:10
ubottubilal: Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. Please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org05:10
MarloweIt's not an iso. WD offers an exe file inside a zip.05:10
MarloweAnd tells you to download a utility that will make the USB bootable05:10
bilalok thanks05:11
MarloweI have no other systems: just the hard drive in my tower that I need to diagnose, and this laptop I'm on with Ubuntu.05:11
lotuspsychjeMarlowe: then extract the contents of the zip to the usb05:11
MarloweRight. And done.05:12
MarloweI don't need anything else to make my desktop recognize and run it?05:12
lotuspsychjeMarlowe: then boot your usb from bios05:12
lotuspsychjeMarlowe: or burn that content of zip to a cdrom05:12
lotuspsychjeMarlowe: but the easiest way, would be just install ubuntu on your desktop with WD to see if your hd recognizes05:13
lotuspsychjeMarlowe: if it has bad blocks, your logs will surely say so05:13
Marlowelotuspsychje: downloading a new ubuntu iso now to try.05:16
lotuspsychjeMarlowe: if your WD is bad, it wont even show the partitioning from setup05:17
lotuspsychjeMarlowe: and if it has badblocks, but able to run, your syslog will spam messages about it05:17

Vaingloryhackal: xrandar, probably09:09
UbuntuNoob@hackal, your graphics card is only built for some certain resolutions.09:09
k1lhackal: waht video card?09:09
UbuntuNoobif you laptop monitor, and your external monitor are exactly the same resolution (and inches/size etc.) you shouldn't have any trouble.09:09
hackalI also have nvidia graphics card but when I check system details it shows Intel Ivybridge Mobile graphics card09:10

Vaingloryyes, one moment09:10

k1lUbuntuNoob: you installed ubuntu-mate. so you have the mate desktop. unity is shipped as standard on the original ubuntu install media.  but you always can install unity when installing the "ubuntu-desktop" metapackage09:27
UbuntuNoobon windows, you can right click the taskbar, and select the option to view 2 windows side by side. Is there any way to do this in MATE?09:27
k1lhackal: any adapters involved?09:28
hackalk1l: do you mean cable adapters? No I use only VGA cable.09:28
k1lhackal: yeah, hdmi/dvi to vga adapters are known to cause issues. that is why i asked09:29
VaingloryAmm0n: yes09:30
k1lhackal: so the right driver is running. try the nvidia-settings menu to set the right resolution.09:30
hackalI also have one more cable I could use its hdmi -> dvi09:30

TJ-mobile3_: through the package-manager (apt-get) like everything else11:27
mobile3_give me the full command11:27
mikubuntui want to make sure i don't mess up the xp space because for now its the only os that will give me internet connectivity11:27
TJ-mobile3_: do you know how the basics of Debian/Ubuntu package management work?11:27
TJ-mikubuntu: !!! how are you getting on?11:27
mikubuntuTJ-: just saw you here! you weren't around yesterday that i could see :P11:28
=== shome is now known as zpad
Rene_xQ: Is there any other place where the desktop-short cut info is saved other then the *.desktop file ? I don't get it how multiple applications are being attempted to start , that I can not find back anywhere.11:29
TJ-mobile3_: As it's a server you need to use command-line tool "apt-get". See this page for details of how package management works: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingSoftware11:29
TJ-mikubuntu: I looked out for you but didn't see you 'alive' so wandered off again :)11:30
mikubuntulots of people helped, but could still never determine why lubuntu (nor ub nor xub) would recognise even a wired connection, even tho when the box is running on xp, it has both wired and wireless connectivity11:30
BluesKajHiyas all11:30
TJ-mikubuntu: Really? So you got it alongside the other PC with a power extension, or are you using a looooong Ethernet cable? :)11:31
TJ-mikubuntu: (looking at your images now)11:31
mikubuntuTJ-: today i've just decided to try to proceed with a side by side of lub 1204, preserving xp until i can dump it off completely11:31
mikubuntuTJ-: no, i'm chatting on my laptop -- the target machine is the hp mini 1000 that someone gave to my sis, but i'm going to have to give it back to her as she is leaving town in few days :(11:33
TJ-mikubuntu: So, you have XP working from a single partition (sda1, 16GB), is that correct?11:33
TJ-mikubuntu: remind how large the hard disk on it is11:33
mikubuntuTJ-: i think, but i'm not literate enough to know that so i wanted some guidance11:34
TJ-mikubuntu: Those images are showing an installation on a 16GB SanDisk SSD, is that inside the notebook?11:35
mobile3_TJ-: when I switched to Apache2 , nothing is working... see the doesnotexst page again11:35
mikubuntuTJ-: it must be, my installation usb is not sandisk -- should i run a term query?11:36
=== sveta is now known as Svetlana
TJ-mobile3_: Remember you'll need to remove the manual installation of Apache2 that you must have done/had done for you, previously, otherwise it and the Ubuntu packages will conflict.11:36
TJ-mikubuntu: well that image shows "ATA SanDisk pSSD 16G" - the ATA suggests its on an ATA interface, not USB11:37
mikubuntuTJ-: so i don't really understand where xp is, and whats free -- but it is asking me to create a root partition11:37
mobile3_TJ-: Apache 2 means  2.4.12 ...11:37
TJ-mobile3_: apache2 just means *any* version of apache version 2.x, as opposed to the apache version 1.x11:38
mikubuntuTJ-: so does that sound about right for a 'netbook' ?? can we just split the space evenly between xp and lubuntu?11:38
TJ-mikubuntu: I'm not sure XP can live in much less, not if it is going to have applications installed into its partition.11:39
mikubuntuTJ-: don't know if you remembered this other little detail regarding partitions on the hp mini -- https://roomforcreativity.wordpress.com/2012/08/06/installing-ubuntu-12-04-on-hp-mini-210-1000/11:40
mobile3_TJ- :I removed  2.2.29 and installed 2.4.12 , but it is not showing on that doesnot exist page11:40
TJ-mikubuntu: Right now you'd have to shrink that existing 16GB sda1 partition using that gparted resizing option to create space for Linux... that'd need a minimum of 6GB and that's going to constrain what can be installed/put on later11:40
TJ-mobile3_: let me check11:41
Ben64mobile3_: where did you get 2.2.29?11:41
Rene_xQ: Is the *.desktop file in the desktop folder, the only place where Ubuntu saves the info for a short cut ? And if this file is edited it should do precisely what is in there ?11:41
mikubuntuTJ-: i would like nothing less than to strangle xp in a bathtub, and let the worms eat it, but i don't want to give my sister a box with no connectivity11:41
mobile3_Ben64: from webuzo apps11:41
Ben64mobile3_: no idea what that is. you should pretty much only install stuff from the software center11:42
pengemismobile3_, help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP11:42
Ben64mikubuntu: xp isn't supported. don't use it11:42
IceBot3000Windows XP doesn't get security patches now, might want to upgrade11:42
mobile3_Ben64: Webuzo is VPS contol panel11:42
mikubuntuTJ-: my sis is not computer savvy (less than me actually!) nor even curious, so she won't be adding software, as a rule11:43
Ben64mobile3_: that's not good11:43
TJ-mobile3_:  "Server: Apache/2.4.12 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.1k PHP/5.5.24"11:43
mobile3_TJ-: from where ?11:43
mobile3_Ben64: why not good ?11:44
TJ-mobile3_: In the Response Header the server sends back, I required it manually using Telnet11:44
Ben64a vps control panel shouldn't be installing things11:44
Rene_xnvm i see the other prog also starting from console ... i guess i messed up my wine bottle, nothing to do with the short cut thanks all o/11:44
mobile3_Ben64: is that wrong? why ?11:45
mikubuntuBen64: no choice for now -- no connectivity (wired or wireless) in lubuntu11:45
Ben64mikubuntu: i don't see how that requires you to use an unsupported windows version11:45
TJ-mikubuntu: I'm not sure what to suggest. My gut feelign is to get (L)ubuntu on it and working and don't worry about trying to dual-boot, but it's your call. As I said the other day you really *need* the mini to be sitting next to your active PC so you aren't shuttling backwards and forwards between rooms to run commands which might be needed to solve the issues it has.11:46
TJ-mikubuntu: If you're using the Lubuntu Live "Try..." option we can attempt some diagnosis as to why the wired connection isn't operating11:46
TJ-mikubuntu: that is usually pretty obvious stuff especially as we already know that XP can immediately bring up wired and wireless connections on the same hardware - tells us the cables, router, etc., are all good11:47
mikubuntuTJ-: TJ- so if lubuntu was side by side with xp, couldn't i fix lubuntu, and then erase xp?11:47
mobile3_okay, I am going...11:48
R13oseHow do I increase my mic voice?  I feel this is super low and people can't hear others most of the time.11:48
mikubuntuTJ-: i know, and if you think you know how to diagnose, that would be great -- but nobody else has seemed to know11:49
Rene_x<R13ose>: go to sound settings , then input tab , make sure you select the right input and adjust the volume11:50
Rene_x<R13ose>: i normaly enter from the unity bar in the pulldown menu where also rhytembox is located top right11:51
mikubuntuTJ-: have to run outside for just a moment, be back in 5-7 mins and i'll let you make the call -- either full lubuntu install, or side by side with xp11:52

Rene_xwill save the settings11:58
R13oseRene_x: okay but I have to change the settings right?11:59
Rene_x<R13ose> if the mic boost goes away after boot then yes11:59

mikubuntuTJ-: ok, just trying to figure out how to give you a birds eye view into the box :(12:01

PwnXHello everyone, someone here that can help me with Conky ?12:02
Rene_x<R13ose> in alsamixer when you press F4 you get input devices, i would look there if you can boost anything12:02
Ben64mikubuntu: xp is not a sane option12:02
TJ-mikubuntu: and is it also correct that installer causes the black screen when it starts, or, does that display correctly?12:02
mikubuntuTJ-: yes, and i have gparted open as you saw in images, just don't know where to proceed12:02

mikubuntuTJ-: lub 1404 went to black screen -- lub 12.04 displays fine12:03
TJ-Ben64: Who cares? it's installed on the device and currently is the only OS that can operate the device's network interfaces!12:03
TJ-mikubuntu: Ahhhh... so it's 12.04... right... thought you'd fixed that glitch yourself :)12:04

Ben64xp isn't any better12:04
Ben64if windows is desired, 7+12:05
TJ-mikubuntu: OK, using 12.04 and the Live "Try..." option you can install openssh-server and give me direct access if you want to do that12:05
Rene_x<R13ose> i think even if you just use the GUI/sound controls and later give a: sudo alsactl store it should store the settings you just setted, else i dont know what to do sorry12:05
Rene_xsudo alsactl store12:06

mikubuntuBen64: this is day 6 of this saga -- i need to get resolution any way i can. my disabled sister is wanting her box back.12:11
Rene_xR13ose not sure ofcause what skype is doing, maybe it's just doing a digital signal boost, and you might need to tweak the ubuntu mic input settings too to get the best results12:11
Ben64mikubuntu: ok so focus on getting ubuntu working then12:12
TJ-Exactly what we *are* doing!12:12
astroboyi have a question, if i have some files in folder, the files is *.mp4 , can i change the extension to *.m4v using terminal? i mean dont need to change one by one...12:12
R13oseRene_x: I might have figured this out, and will try this tonight but if this fails I will be back here for more advice.  Thanks.12:12
Rene_xR13ose best is if possible not to boost the mic too much in ubuntu settings, unless you have an extreemly expensive sound crad for better results12:12
Rene_xno boost = better sound, the more boost the more crackling12:13
agent_whiteastroboy: You just want to change the file name? Or convert the file from mp4 to m4v?12:13
agent_whiteastroboy: There is a big difference.12:13
astroboyagent_white, just want to change file name12:14
R13oseRene_x: none boost seems so low.12:14
cfhowlettastroboy, that ain't the way.  to transcode, use avconv; avconv -i *.mp4 *.m4v12:14
agent_whiteastroboy: What cfhowlett said.  Changing the extension does not change the file's encoding.  ie -- changing a music file's name from "foo.wav" to "foo.mp3" does not change it from a wav file to an mp3 file.12:16
astroboycfhowlett, how about if my files is formatted in mp4, but the files now have no extension at the end.12:16
agent_whiteUsing avconv or ffmpeg would be best.12:16
agent_whiteastroboy: Are you sure they are mp3 files?12:16
R13oseRene_x: thanks again, I have to go12:17
Rene_x<R13ose> yeh it's a question of tweaking,boost enouigh to make stuff audiable, but not too much to avoid cracking sounds, and i gues you have to tweak both alsa & skype, im asuming skype is just digitaly trying to boost the incoming signal12:17
agent_whiteYou _could_ have a mp3 file named "foo.jpg" -- file extensions only help to identify the file quickly, not to determine its type.12:17
Rene_xnp laters12:17
astroboyfoe example, the files now named "abc", awant to change it into something like "abc.mp4", and i have many files that need to change12:17
cfhowlettastroboy,  do this: file FILENAMEHERE and read the properties.  IF the file is actually .mp4 format, then adding the suffix would be permissible.12:18
umbra_now can someone please help me with the wifi drivers?12:22
agent_whiteastroboy: Are you sure that EACH AND EVERY file in that directory is an mp3?12:22
astroboychecked the properties, these all mp4, and now they all have *.0 extension , i only want to change it into *.mp412:23

ZaitzevHi, I have an NTFS drive on the verge of complete failure, currently plugged in via USB on my Ubuntu laptop. When I try copying files, the drive disconnects. Is there a better, more reliable way to rescue my data?12:33
FuchsZaitzev: well, as a first step I'd just dd the whole partition to another drive12:33
agent_whiteumbra_: We need more than "it just doesn't work" to help you.12:33
Fuchsas dd doesn't care about filesystems, this should hopefully work. Then at least you can have multiple attempts at rescuing it without destroying it any further12:34
ZaitzevFuchs: Would you care to elaborate? I have never used dd12:34
agent_whiteumbra_: Things like... what do you mean it doesn't work? how are you enabling it? What do you expect to happen? What's the info on your hotspot you connect to? Can you connect anywhere else or is this the first time you have ever done this before?12:34
ZaitzevFuchs: You may pm me with details if you want, easier to keep track of there12:34
FuchsZaitzev: dd if=/dev/foo1 of=/somewhere/where/you/have/plenty/of/space.backup    (you can also pump it through a compression such as gzip, just will take longer and eat CPU)    replace foo1 with your actual partition12:35
FuchsZaitzev: I don't do pm support for various reasons, nope12:35
Zaitzevthat's alright, I'll just keep that one line copied =)12:35
FuchsZaitzev: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DriveImaging#Backup_with_dd12:35
Fuchsthat is a bit more verbose and adds compression12:35
FuchsZaitzev: unmount the partition first12:36
Fuchsthen launch that, so you have a 1:1 copy of the filesystem  (including errors, but nevermind).   After that, various rescue attempts can be made, because at least you still have an image if it breaks some more12:36
Fuchsan image you could, worst case, even feed to professional data rescue services12:36
mcphailEasier if you don't compress: makes it slightly simpler to mount the image later12:37
Fuchsthe thing after of= can either be a device  (careful with that) or a file12:37
ZaitzevThe files aren't important enough to warrant expensive professional services12:37
astroboyFuchs, agent_white, cfhowlett, thankyou guys.. solved now using 'mmv' .. :))12:37
ZaitzevBut important enough that I'll try what I can to recover :)12:37
agent_whiteastroboy: Good to hear :) Look into bash scripts in the future for an alternative as well.12:37
Fuchsastroboy: you're welcome :)12:38
TJ-Zaitzev: Fuchs For an actively dying drive that is doing I/O disconnects, use 'ddrescue' not 'dd' to grab a recovery image12:38
agent_whiteastroboy: `for file in *.0; do  ...   ` :)12:38
FuchsTJ-: from what I gathered it is the file system that breaks, not the actual hardware. If it is the hardware: yes.12:38
agent_whiteTJ-: LANGUAGE12:38
agent_whiteTJ-: ... Just kidding. ;P12:38
Fuchsagent_white: that is a very bad idea with just a for loop,12:39
Fuchsthis will break on various characters, mostly whitespaces though12:39
TJ-Fuchs: " When I try copying files, the drive disconnects." ... I think that's a dying drive12:39
agent_whiteFuchs: If used correctly, it's not a bad idea at all :)12:39
ZaitzevTJ-: ddrescue huh?12:39
astroboyagent_white, or >> mmv '*.mp4' '#1.m4v'   :)12:39
Fuchsagent_white: yes, and that example is far from "used correctly", thus the friendly warning from my side, before anything breaks12:40
saladin442my caps lock suddently turning on.  then i turned it off but then sometimes it is turned on for unknown reason. I don't press it, that's sure!12:40
saladin442any idea?12:40
agent_whiteFuchs: The example I provided was just to inform him that he could use bash scripting directly in his terminal. Nothing more.12:40

agent_whiteumbra_purus: Unfortunately,that isn't helpful... we don't know what/where/why you installed that package you are trying to build, only that you can't build it. For starters, maybe a pastebin of the output of `lspci -v` would be good.12:46
agent_whiteumbra_purus: Lets start from the beginning and figure out the details of your wifi card as your computer knows it.12:46

TJ-Zaitzev: But with ddrescue you can restart it where it left off. You'll need to read the documentation but its pretty straightforward12:51

TJ-Zaitzev: although you'll probably get fed up reconnect the drive constantly. Myself, I'd connect the drive directly to the PC using SATA or IDE, because most of the incidents of your description I see are caused by a failing USB<>disk controller, not the disk itself12:52
ZaitzevTJ-: The drive used to be connected to a SATA port (It was the datadrive on my home PC), I just put it in the USB case to try it on the laptop12:53
TJ-Zaitzev: Ahhh, so it had already shown failure symptoms?12:54
ZaitzevYeah, a couple of days ago it started. I then disconnected it to put it in the USB case I got today12:54
ZaitzevTJ-: Can I use dd/ddrescue to try and save just a specific directory instead of the entire drive?12:55
ZaitzevTJ-: The drive is 500GB and almost full, but I just really "need" to save about 10-12 GB of it12:56
TJ-Zaitzev: No. dd's work on a block, not file-system, level. If the drive is resetting itself something very serious has happened to it12:56
TJ-Zaitzev: This is why backups of important data are essential12:56
ZaitzevI keep the most important in the cloud, but I had this drive as a backup drive at one point, and had kind of forgotten about those files that I want to save until now. My luck. :p12:58
seijirouHello.  I've got emulex HBAs on ubuntu 14.04 and I'm wondering if it's possible to configure them in target mode and use SCST or LIO or something else to expose a target.  I've found some info on qlogic but almost nothing on emulex.  I believe the driver shipped with 14.04 is lpfc but I can't find any information on lpfc configurables to switch from initiatior to target.12:59

pbxastroboy, you could install and use xbacklight to set it...13:10

PazoozaI have that issue too, astroboy.13:11
astroboypbx, thx, but can i just configure a specific file to set the brightness to certain value on reboot?13:13
pbxastroboy, you'd add something like `xbacklight -set 100` to one of the startup scripts. don't know the 'right' place for it though. if you're the  only user you could do it in e.g. .bashrc13:15

ubottuMultiple stack-based buffer overflows in ntpd in NTP before 4.2.8 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted packet, related to (1) the crypto_recv function when the Autokey Authentication feature is used, (2) the ctl_putdata function, and (3) the configure function. (http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-9295)16:37

TJ-orion: The package is patched16:40
orionTJ-: Why don't they bump the version?16:40
TJ-It is16:40
TJ-orion: see the package's changelog16:40
orionTJ-: http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/ntp 1:4.2.6.p5+dfsg-3ubuntu2.14.04.316:41
ballardboyI have install grunt-cli on 14.04 and the install worked but when I type in grunt I get the following message /usr/bin/env: node: No such file or directory. Has anybody else had this problem and how do I fix it?16:41
TJ-orion: and?16:41
orionTJ-: I'm expecting it to say 1:4.2.8... not 1:4.2.6...16:42
TJ-orion: why? we don't update wholesale we just patch specific known bugs16:42

SholiraI ran into a problem with my dual boot ubuntu laptop, after a software update it's stuck in a login loop, I tried reinstalling ubuntu and many other options from the internet. When I check the .xsession-error it gives this message: http://paste.ubuntu.com/11678071/16:52

bugsonubuntuCan you help me?16:54
SholiraI'm quite new to ubuntu myself tbh16:54
SholiraSo I haven't ran into a lot of stuff yet, so sorry :(16:55
TJ-Sholira: Have you tried deleting the "/home/$USER/.Xauthority" file?16:55
SholiraTJ- , yes16:55
ioriaTJ- you know what   ~/.config/dconf/user    file is ?16:56
TJ-Sholira: You were able to delete it, and the loop continued? sometimes that file gets owned by root and the $USER cannot delete that file without using "sudo"16:56
SholiraTJ- , I deleted it without using sudo and the loop continues16:57
TJ-Sholira: OK, that's always the obvious cause so worth checking :)16:57
TJ-Sholira: I looked at your .xsession-errors but it didn't suggest anything to me other than that.16:58
TJ-ioria: I think it's dconf's settings file isn't it?16:58
SholiraTJ-, I tried a lot of the stuff already from other people with the same symptoms, but nothing has helped so far =/16:59
SholiraI can also check other stuff if that might help16:59
Sholirafor you to help16:59
TJ-Sholira: I'm wondering if it could be a lightdm session issue. There's usually log files created in "/var/log/lightdm/" that I investigate for these type of issues17:01
SholiraTJ-, what should I look for in those files?17:04
=== hxm is now known as Guest63544
TJ-Sholira: any indication of an error :D I have no idea specifically, but usually you can separate regular informational messages  from the warnings/errors17:05

schnitzneed help with graphics problem17:22
schnitzrunning ubuntustudio 15.0417:22
schnitzrate is 60 Hz only, tried lots of things17:23
schnitznot a Linux pro, just a user17:23
TJ-Sholira: long shot but I vaguely recall having an issue with the lightdm .Xauthority file. Can't remember if it allowed the system to get as far as beginning a user-login though. There's a "/var/lib/lightdm/.Xauthority" file I had to delete. Requires switching to a VT using Ctrl+Alt+F1, log-in, then "sudo service lightdm stop" then "sudo rm /var/lib/lightdm/.Xauthority" then "sudo service lightdm restart" ... I think there's only a 2% chance that'll affect it thou17:23
schnitzupdated to 15.04 and am not so deeply involved with Linux, but everything worked well for many months. Now suddenly, I have only 60Hz whatever I do17:24
schnitz<schnitz> (yes I'm running an old school monitor)17:24
schnitz<schnitz> Problem is, I have a onboard APU with an additional graphics card. Both AMD / ATI ... under Windows, with ATI drivers, they work together well, do multi-GPU load balancing17:24
schnitz<schnitz> under Ubuntu, they seem to collide now17:24
schnitz<schnitz> Since I'm not doing anything graphics intense, I was wondering whether I could *disable* and additional grafics cards hardware-wise under Linux17:24
schnitz<schnitz> aticonfig is not working properly under Linux, tried lots of configs, it mostly crashes and doesn't help at alll17:24
schnitzHow can I completely deactivate an additional graphics card so ubuntu is forced to only use the onboard GPU on the APU / Mainboard?17:27
schnitz(w/o physically pulling it out of the PC ;-)17:27
Zack263do you guys have a recommend torrent client for ubuntu?17:28
TJ-schnitz: if the GPUs don't share the same driver, blacklist the driver17:28
schnitzTJ- perfect, how do I that?17:28
schnitzhow do I do that...17:28
TJ-schnitz: identify which driver(s) the GPUs use first: "lspci -nnvvv" look at the "driver in use" line17:29
schnitzok will do thx17:29

slayeranyone ever faced a not working usb 3.0 port in Ubuntu 12.04?17:30
histoslayer: what's not working it's not showing any devices or the speed?17:30
slayerno devices17:30
histoslayer: new mobo?17:31
histoslayer: mother board17:31
slayernope, its a laptop17:31
slayerpreinstalled Ubuntu17:31
histoslayer: preinstalled by whom?17:31
histoslayer: That's odd. Maybe try a live cd and see if they borked something up with their configuration17:32
schnitzTJ- thanks, I found both GPUs in that list, unfortunately they both use the same kernel driver 'fglrx_pci'17:32
histoslayer: if not perhaps the hardware itself is bad.17:32
dionysus69hey guys, I have this thing to do, right now my ubuntu partition is at the end of the hard drive, is it possible to move it in front??17:34
TJ-schnitz: OK, so you'd have to use the ATI specific config tool ... which from what you said earlier, doesn't work!?17:34
SholiraTJ- I tried your option but it didn't work...17:35
slayerhisto: the hardware is okay17:35
slayerit worked fine few few days earlier but today it completely stopped17:36
TJ-Sholira: it was a very long shot17:36
khaldrogoxis there an official channel for cannonical openstack + maas?17:36
slayerhisto: it was dropping usb mouse connection but pen drives were working fine17:37
SholiraTJ- any shot is a shot for me, do you have another suggestion?17:37
slayerhisto: though i managed to fix it by blacklisting module "uas"17:38
schnitzTJ- it mostly crashes, I can do changes, but then after reboot ubuntu tells me it crashed during startup17:38
slayerBut I wonder what could have done this behavior... I didnt even did any changes to system recently17:38
zero-1hi everyone, quick question, I'm on a fresh install and my keyboard is going crazy repeating keystrokes randomly, I thought i could be my mechanical keyboard, I connected a different keyboard and the problem persist17:39
TJ-schnitz: does the crash report give you an option to examine the details of the crash? that might help fix the crash entirely17:39
schnitzyes it does I just chose to ignore it :-)17:40
zero-1I checked accesibility settings everything is off, what can I do to fix this, trying to code like this is super annoying and time consuming17:40
schnitzno I did read it, it was just beyond my knowledge17:40
schnitzfrom what I could tell it seemed to have memory allocation issues17:41
TJ-schnitz: usually best to fix or workaround the root issue17:41
poacheRHello. I have a question that's been bugging me for years, but I never set out to answer it properly. What do people generally do if they need to install a package but it relies on newer libraries than those installed on your system?17:41
voozeI'm trying to change the lightdm unity-greeter GTK-theme. I have found the options in dconf under unity-greeter, but it does not seem to have any affect at login. What could I be doing wrong?17:41
proderlinorHow do i remove xfce4 without removing any installed software17:41
poacheRIdeally I would love to find a way to create a 'static' deb ... but the only instance of a static .deb I've ever come across was from skype. People do not tend to package their .deb files as static or offer that choice in general.17:42
TJ-proderlinor: that doesn't make sense. how can you remove it without removing the software?17:42
poacheRI know there's a way, *if* you have those other libraries installed somewhere else, to point  LD_LIBRARY_PATH to them and run your file17:43
poacheRand presumably to install it in the first place you might have to do something like dpkg -i --force-all17:43
poacheRbut then there's the question where do you get all the library files in general17:43
MonkeyDustproderlinor  xfce *is* software17:43
poacheRdo you hunt them down one by one?17:43
TJ-poacheR: build the software inside it using static linkage rather than dynamic shared objects17:43
poacheRdo you add a newer repository? doesn't that break the old one?17:44
zero-1could erst_disabled and acpi=off in grub be the cause of my keyboard issues?17:44
poacheRTJ-: can you elaborate a bit more? Is this standard practice, or your suggestion?17:44
TJ-zero-1: Yes17:44
lufei 大家好17:44
schnitzTJ- total agreement, its just that understanding the error report upon start-up/crash needs to happen first17:44
lufei大家 好,有没有人在用VNC?17:44
genewitchI'm getting a certificate error from a baltimorecity.gov website in curl and wget (http://projectftm.com/index.php?1849f6 errors); is this a possible ubuntu CA issue or is this the website/godaddy issue? who should i call?17:45
zero-1TJ - which one would be? both? I added those options to  get rid of some of the errors at boot17:45
genewitchbecause that cert doesn't look self signed, it looks signed by godaddy17:45
TJ-poacheR: When building binary executables there's 2 options for accessing code from other libraries: 1) dynamic linking to shared objects and 2) static linking to the libXXX.a files which are included inside the binary executable so it does not need to load any external code17:45
zero-1brb rebooting with those options removed from grub17:46
TJ-zero-1: erst_disabled only affects MCE log access via ACPI I believe, so acpi=off is going to affect a LOT of things17:47
poacheRTJ-: oh, I see, sorry, no I don't mean anything to do with building. If I'm building something myself in the first place, I can get it to run anyway. I'm talking about getting a deb file from the internet, which on installation complains that I don't satisfy the dependencies because my ubuntu is old.17:47
TJ-poacheR: Ahhh, in that case you're stuck, unless you create a container using LXC (think Docker) and install just what's needed in that17:47
TJ-poacheR: LinuX Containers17:48
poacheRI'll look that up, thanks. So, there isn't a "standard" way of dealing with this problem?17:48
TJ-poacheR: Yes... only use the distro's archives :)17:48
TJ-poacheR: Or else, use a bleeding edge distro that tracks upstreams or builds everything for your system17:49
poacheRTJ-: on my home computer, this is what I'd do. The problem comes more when I need to use a package at work, but our IT department doesn't allow us to upgrade the distro in general (because they don't "offer support" for it).17:49
poacheRSo I'm stuck with a version of ubuntu which is 6-versions behind, but need to install, say, the latest octave17:50
TJ-poacheR: which is a very sensible rule to have17:50
poacheR(ok, octave is a bad example, because that's better built from source anyway)17:50
TJ-poacheR: Are you able to run virtual machines?17:50
poacheR(but you know what I mean)17:50
poacheRyes, but I was wondering if there's a standardized solution to fetching newer libraries and running a .deb that requires them, that I wasn't aware of17:51
TJ-poacheR: or create a chroot (change root) and install the distro release required in that17:51
poacheRseems to be a very frequent problem, and one that would scare newbies away ... I'm fairly confident in linux and I still just say "eh, fukit, I don't really need this then" when that happens17:51
TJ-poacheR: No... the LXC/Docker approach has in a general way come out of what you're describing.17:51
TJ-poacheR: allowing single apps to be isolated from the rest of the OS with their own dependencies17:52
=== casper_ is now known as TheFriendlyGhost
poacheRI remember this "linux static installation process" project a long time ago ... can't remember the name now, but it was going to be packaging things statically into 'keys' or sth. or 'bottles'. or something like that17:52
poacheR(no, not wine)17:52
poacheRyeah. thanks, I'll have a look at that17:53
poacheRThat still means tracking down the libraries by myself on the interwebz though, presumably, right?17:53
poacheRlike, packages.debian.com or sth17:53
poacheRsolving this problem would be a nice little 'app' actually ...17:54

histodionysus69: linuxatemyram.com17:55
poacheRhisto: tl;dr general approach to installing a .deb with newer dependencies on an older ubuntu17:55
zero-1can anyone enlighten me as to why those options could make my keyboard go crazy? (erst_disabled acpi=off  on grub)17:55
histopoacheR: lxc or docker.  or the new snappy packages that are proposed17:56
poacheR(or, a newer package on an older linux distro in general)17:56
dionysus69histo: haha thats funny ;P but I am sure its not supposed to get laggy at points ?? :S17:56
genewitchI'm getting a certificate error from a baltimorecity.gov website in curl and wget (http://projectftm.com/index.php?1849f6 errors); is this a possible ubuntu CA issue or is this the website/godaddy issue? I called the OIT of that government, but i want to be sure i'm not an idiot, too.17:56
poacheRhisto: yeah, thanks, I'll have a look at that. It's weird that you'd need containers in the first place though ...17:56
poacheRhisto: essentially bringing the newer libraries in the same folder and linking to them is the windows approach, right?17:57
poacheRhisto: I don't see why you'd need such a specialised structure just to put things in one place and ask the executable to use those instead of the system ones.17:57
poacheRhisto: anyway, I'll have a look. thanks!17:57
histopoacheR: check out snappy sounds exactly liek what you are talking about17:58
genewitchpoacheR: if you want something like that you either need containers /etc/alternatives maybe17:58
histopoacheR: http://www.ubuntu.com/cloud/tools/snappy17:58
poacheRhisto: cool thanks!17:58

The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | GUI frontends such as gufw and ufw-kde also exist. | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo18:43
poacheRTunaFish: not as "matlabish" as fish, but still good. I admit I didn't know about it until after I tried fish and checked if bash had the same too18:43
pavlosSebaaas, it expects address/mask18:43
TJ-Samul`: From what I can see, the cause is a problem with one or more of the plugins18:44
Sebaaasthen if i put 1/0 , i expect only the address?18:44
TunaFishpoacheR, I think I know, with tab right? I'll check it out to confirm if it is good or not for me.18:45
poacheRTunaFish: no, with Ctrl+R18:45
poacheRTunaFish: and there's reverse search too, but a feature of modern linuxes fucks that up, and you'll have to edit your bash.rc first if you really want it18:46
poacheRTunaFish: http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/73498/how-to-cycle-through-reverse-i-search-in-bash18:47
TunaFishpoacheR, Ctrl R opens up reverse search, not auto complete? but I didn't know about reverse search, it look good.18:47
=== fool is now known as rika
TunaFishpoacheR, Nice, thanks, look quite useful. I need to read the fucking manual.18:48
SebaaasIts okay now i understand18:49
poacheRTunaFish: well, if you press ctrl+R after you've already typed something, it's like an autocomplete from history18:49
SebaaasThanks you guys, especially pavlos18:49
poacheRand obviously, normal autocomplete exists with tab18:49
TunaFishI think I've fallen in love with fish's webconfig, and colorful default config. though I already colored my bash, it looked cute :318:50
SCHAAP137Sebaaas, 0/0 stands for i think18:50
HelpeRXim currently using webchat.freenod.net and the text box to type is so small how do i increase the size im on the latest ubuntu18:50
SebaaasTHe first 0 for the IP18:51
Sebaaasand the t18:51
Sebaaasand the right 0 for the mask18:51
SCHAAP137most probably, yes18:51
Sebaaasthen i can put
SCHAAP1371/0 or 0/1 makes no sense18:51
SCHAAP137no, a specific IP is always a /3218:51
SCHAAP137learn about subnets18:52
bekks /0 doesnt make sense.18:52
SCHAAP137i've seen it before in firewalls18:52
Sebaaasi see in the manual the 1 means a 24 mask adress18:52
SCHAAP137ah rly?18:52
Sebaaassee man iptables18:52
Sebaaasmy english is not so good so if you can explain me more18:52
SCHAAP137i don't know iptables that well18:53
HelpeRX my english is not so good so if you can explain it to me more18:53
HelpeRXwould be the correct way to say that18:53
bekksSebaaas: Where does it say that in "man iptables"?18:53
SCHAAP1370.0.0.0/0 = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Default_route18:53
Sebaaasok ty helper xD18:53
Sebaaasgo man iptables18:54
Sebaaasit is shows that18:54
bekksSebaaas: I did. And I found only ONE reference of "24".18:54
bekksSo where does it say that /1 means ?18:55
Sebaaasi think so18:55
SCHAAP137makes no sense18:55
bekksSebaaas: It doesnt say that at all.18:55
SCHAAP1370.0.0.0/0 is more likely, meaning default route18:55
SCHAAP137all my iptables entries are in CIDR notation, it can reasonably be assumed that 0/0 is short for
Sebaaasand what i need to put in the right side18:56
Sebaaasthe 0 means?18:56
poacheRTunaFish: I liked fish very much, but in the end, the non-standard way of doing scripts was a no-no for me18:57
poacheRTunaFish: if I remember correctly, anyway.18:57
zero-1TJ - What about erst is that safe to disable?18:57
Sebaaasim not so good in english18:57
Sebaaasso what it tells18:57
SCHAAP137i'm tired of repeating myself; use Google18:57
poacheRTunaFish: because it meant that I can't just run a bash script straight in the terminal18:57
TunaFishpoacheR, yeah that's why I think I'll stay with bash for now18:58
SebaaasThe subnet mask is given as /0, which effectively specifies all networks18:58
poacheRTunaFish: But yeah, I remember fish just like that: Lots of good ideas that I wished bash would adopt, but in the end, not 100% compatible with bash stuff, so you can't really 'just switch'.18:59
joukI've edited an /etc/init/blah.conf file. Do I need to do anything to upstart before those changes can take affect?18:59
jouk(because right now, the changes aren't taking effect)19:00
Sebaaas192.168.2.0/24 for IPv4, and 2001:db8::/32 for IPv6.19:00
TJ-zero-1: Yes, some systems require that to boot successfully, if their ACPI MCE ERST logic is broken19:00
joukto be clearer, when I sudo stop foo, the changes I've made to /etc/init/foo.conf aren't showing up.19:01
zero-1alritghty then I guess that's my next attempt19:02

porchohi there. I've just update to mate 1.8.1 and I'm facing some problems with caja. right after I log, tons of instances start up, and I see lots of "Starting Caja" icons. already tried adding "-n" and "--sync" options to the Exec lines of caja*.desktop files, but that didn't work.19:06
porchoI see tons of "caja: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/caja/extensions-2.0/libcaja-actions-tracker.so: undefined symbol: g_type_add_instance_private" in my .xsession_erros file, also19:06
porchocan anyone help me?19:06
lotuspsychjeporcho: maybe the #ubuntu-mate guys can help you?19:06
Helperxwhat font is recommed for web browsing?19:07
porcholotuspsychje, I'll ask them. tks19:07
bekksHelperx: One which your readers can read.19:07
Helperxno i mean for just general browsing19:08
Helperxsomething compatible with everything19:08
bekksHelperx: There is no such font.19:08
Helperxdang lol19:09
Jordan_UHelperx: What problem are you trying to solve?19:09
Helperxsmall text box right now on webchat.freenode.net19:09
xor_ax_axwhat are the rules to peaknuckle?19:09
lotuspsychjeHelperx: use an irc chat client19:10
Helperxthat wont fix the problem though of why it is like this currenltly19:11
delinquentmeI assume that linux / ubuntu has some kind of internal DB it uses ... if thats correct ... just out of curiosity .. what db is it19:12
lotuspsychjeHelperx: this is not really an ubuntu issue right, check your webchat options, maybe you can bigger the fonts19:12
Helperxyes it is lol since when i log using windows its not an issue19:13
TJ-delinquentme: I think you assume wrongly, unless you can be more specific19:13
delinquentmeTJ-,  where do things like passwords get stored?19:14
lotuspsychjeHelperx: wich ubuntu version? wich browser?19:14
TJ-delinquentme: yes19:14
Helperxopera vivid19:14
MonkeyDustHelperx  consider using another irc client19:14

tyteen4a03Hi, I'm trying to install Ubuntu Server and want to set up RAID. I have 4 disks (imgur.com/zEYT9tS) but the installer keeps telling me only 3 are available19:15
MonkeyDustdelinquentme  that's for #ubuntu-offtopic, or #ubuntu-discuss19:15
lotuspsychjeHelperx: did you try firefox or chromium?19:15
xor_ax_axdelinquentme, nice trollbait19:15
lotuspsychje!raid | tyteen4a0319:15
ubottutyteen4a03: Tips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto19:15
delinquentmexor_ax_ax, it was just a thought that came up in passing -- apologies19:15
MonkeyDustHelperx  instead of struggling with it, try something else19:16
lotuspsychjeHelperx: if all fonts are same on the browsers you tested, you sure you have same screen resolution as on windows?19:16
Helperxeverything else is perfect19:16
Helperxalso anyone have any fix for graphics accelration for the gma95019:17
TJ-Helperx: is there any real acceleration for the GMA950?19:18
Helperxeh not really but on windows there isnt any issue19:18
Samul`TJ-: I'm back right now19:18
Samul`so you said the cause may be a plugin(s)?19:18
Helperxsuch as using chrome but on ubuntu when opening and going into the chrome store it crashes the computer19:18
Helperxif i untick hardware accel it works but i dont understand why19:19
Jordan_Utyteen4a03: That picture shows the installer listing what appears to be all 4 2 TiB drives. What do you mean by the installer "only telling me 3 are available"? Can you post a picture of that?19:19
TJ-Helperx: I've been helping someone with the same chipset with other issues, and the research I did suggested it's a wrapper around a PowerVR core, and not well supported by Intel - I think that covered the GMA950 as well19:19
TJ-Samul`: That's what I read on the livemix forums19:19
Helperxand when i try to do a x server config it says the number of screens does not match the number of display19:19
Helperxso what should i do?19:20
Samul`by plugin do you mean L2V or similar (common plugins used in DAWs for reverb, eq, etc.) or another kind of plugin?19:20
Helperxi mean i tried doing sna accel and uxa19:20
Helperxdid dri no 3d accel19:21
TJ-Samul`: I assumed you'd know what that meant - I've never used livemixx myself19:21
Samul`okay probably they were talking about that kind of plugins19:21
Samul`but since I have 1000+ plugins installed on my system, let's move onto the next piece of software ^^"19:22
TJ-Samul`: this is where I read that info: http://www.hydrogen-music.org/hcms/node/53119:22

Dumle29I'm trying to use ubuntu, to make a bootable USB stick, containing windows.19:36

OerHeksDumle29, ask in ##windows and they will tell you about rufus19:37

daleon 15.04 my applications free the system when I drag them across workspaces, if I switch them using the commands (move right, move left, etc.) they work okay?19:43
dawnsonis there a way to install ubuntu server on a remote computer without mouse/keyboard? via ssh maybe?19:43
dalethat's freeze, not free19:44
dawnsonbecause the installer does not detect any keyboards we have. and i have tested 8.19:44

urandom-devdawnson: the process is tricky, but there's some documentation online19:44
Dumle29neurot: Won't work, there's no PPA for 15.0419:45
dawnsonurandom-dev: alternatively i would like to have my usb keyboards working during setup if that is easier :D19:45
OerHeksDumle29, no, you have to change trusty to vivid > sudo sh -c "sed -i 's/vivid/saucy/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/colingille-freshlight-trusty.list19:45
urandom-devdawnson: you basically pre-answer the questions in a config and install from whatever you're booting off of19:45
OerHeksstill a bad idea19:45
Dumle29OerHeks: Yeah19:45
dawnsonurandom-dev: that would work great19:45
urandom-devdawnson: it used to be pretty tricky. I used it to setup a headless machine back in the day of 10.04. let me see if i can dig up the docs for you19:46

dawnsonit is? :D19:48
dawnsonit looks like i need to create a kickstart file19:49

dawnsonbut i dont know how to create such a file on os x :o19:50
dawnsonhm maybe that tool is available on archlinux19:50

dawnsonTJ-: yes, i dont have any other option on this pc19:53
dawnsonno PS219:53
TJ-dawnson: and are you trying them on different USB ports in case 1 port is dead?19:54
TJ-dawnson: Have you enabled 'Legacy USB' in BIOS?19:54
dawnsonall ports working fine, i can even boot from every usb port19:54
dawnsoni can select the boot option from the usb stick19:54
TJ-dawnson: which release of ubuntu are you trying to install?19:54
dawnsonbut then at the language select option nothing works anymore19:54

dawnsonive had this issue with every server release since at least 12.1019:55
dawnsonon all of my pcs19:55
dawnsonit works just fine with ubuntu desktop though but i dont want all that19:55
dawnsoni just want ubuntu server on there :)19:55
TJ-dawnson: in the installer boot screen, you can use F6 I think to  edit the kernel command-line. I'm wondering if one of the ACPI sub-options might help. Can you tell me the make/model of the system?19:57
dawnsonit is the newest i5 Intel NUC19:58
dawnsonlet me get the box and i can tell you more19:58
acz32any benefits to using kubuntu instead of ubuntu and installing the DE through the package manager?19:58
Jordan_Udawnson: Can you only use your keyboard in X from the Ubuntu desktop CD? It's odd that your keyboard would work in what but not the other, given that they share the same core.19:58
TJ-acz32: avoiding Unity, getting to choose your desktop layout :)19:59
dawnsonJordan_U: yes, i can, but i want ubuntu server on there as it will be running a headless plex server19:59
Jordan_Uacz32: If I undestood your question right, one advantage is that you're left with only Kubuntu packages, rather than having a lot of non-kubuntu packages taking space, update bandwidth, and cluttering your menus.19:59
dawnsonTJ-: Intel NUC NUC5i5RYH19:59
Jordan_Udawnson: I mean can you switch to another tty from the Desktop DVD/USB and does your keyboard work there if you do?20:00
N3X15acz32, despite whatever the website says, Kubuntu 15.x is far from stable, so stick to 14.x20:00
dawnsonJordan_U: yes20:00
dawnsonTJ-: it is an i5-5250U according to lscpu20:01
dawnsonnot sure if you need any more information20:01
TJ-dawnson: I'm reading hints that there are problems with APIC (Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller) ... you could try "noapic" on the kernel command line20:01
dawnsonit is currently running archlinu but the plex server package has some problems there and ubuntu is officially supported20:01
dawnsonTJ-: i will try that, one moment20:01
acz32N3X15: is all 15.x unstable or just 15.2 which it shipped with? i heard 15.3 is better20:02
Jordan_UTJ-: Wouldn't you expect such a problem to affect all flavors of Ubuntu equally though?20:02
acz32well somoene could just to a minimal ubuntu install and choose the DE in the install process20:02
dawnsonTJ-: i add that to the linux line? after "quiet ---"?20:02
N3X15acz32, all I know is that I've been unable to edit settings for KDE on two seperate installations and the non-breeze themes are just totally broken20:02
TJ-dawnson: Jordan_U: Might be a BIOS config issue - I was going to suggest doing a BIOS load factory defaults20:02
dawnsonit is all factory default, i just got this pc yeterday :)20:03
TJ-dawnson: Yes... but unless there is something special you've set in BIOS I'd strongly recommend trying BIOS default settings first20:03
dawnsonwell except for disabling bios boot, it is going to be efi only20:03
TJ-dawnson: The thing is, NVRAM can get weird settings in it and only a factory reset will clear them20:03
acz32N3X15: ya i've heard a lot of complaints. i use debian which has kde 4.x20:03
dawnsonnoapic does not work either20:03
N3X15Also, I'm considering just dropping KDE altogether since their developers would rather bicker over politics rather than fix serious issues20:04
dawnsonN3X15: thats why i am using gnome 3 until papyros-shell is ready :)20:05
N3X15dawnson, I highly doubt that will ever happen, given the current glacial pace of development with them.20:05
N3X15You'd be better off asking Valve to made a DM.20:06

dawnsonhmm is it possible to mount a "write protected" partiotn as rw?20:07
acz32i know nothing about the politics behind the team20:07
Jordan_Udawnson: How is it "write protected"?20:08
dawnsonJordan_U: i am not sure, it is the ubuntu server installation usb stick20:08
dawnsonit says mount: /dev/sdb1 is write-protected, mounting read-only20:09
Jordan_Udawnson: Did you use dd to prepare the USB?20:09
dawnsonJordan_U: yes20:09
dawnsoni want to edit some files so i dont need the keyboard during setup20:09
Jordan_Udawnson: Then it's a read-only iso9660 filesystem. You can't modify it without re-creating the entire FS.20:09
dawnsonthen it will be a lot harder than i expected20:10
dawnsonhow am i supposed to do that? :(20:10
Jordan_Udawnson: What files are you trying to edit?20:11
Jordan_Udawnson: If you use a tool like USB startup disk creator or Unetbootin you will get a fat32 filesystem rather than iso9660.20:11
dawnsonthe /isolinux/langlist file for example20:11
dawnsonbut unetbootin does not support efi boot20:12
=== maxim is now known as Guest28403

Jordan_Udawnson: I think that the resulting USB drive will boot via UEFI, simply by virtue of having a /EFI/BOOTX64.efi on a fat32 partition. If not, then ensure that you're using GPT and mark the fat32 partition as an EFI System Partition and it should definitely work.20:15

Jordan_Udawnson: Use Gparted to create a new partition table on them, be sure to use GPT, then create a single FAT32 partition and give it the "bootable" flag (or whatever GParted calls giving a partition the appropriate GUID for an EFI System Partition).20:27

=== me is now known as Guest37550
Jordan_Udawnson: Is there a bug report filed about this particular problem?20:43
dawnsonJordan_U: i found 2 or 3 for older ubuntu version the last time i searched20:43
dawnsonafter about 3+ hours of research20:43
dawnsonso they are a bit hard to find, but if i should come across them i can send you the link20:43
dawnsonunfortunately i have to work at the moment, while also trying to get this stupid release to install :D20:44
kris27mcI solved the problem using wget and dpkg. Thanks for the help20:44
Jordan_Udawnson: Another option for installing would be to boot from a LiveCD/USB, install kvm, then run "sudo kvm -hda /dev/sdX -cdrom /path/to/ubuntu-server.iso". Then you would just have to ensure that you don't mount any of the partitions on your internal drive during the installation.20:45
amariHow do I configure a slideshow for the background in Unity?20:46
Jordan_Udawnson: Probably want to add a "-boot d" to that kvm command so that it boots from the server iso rather than your internal drive.20:47
dawnsonJordan_U: that way i would need a live stick that also includes the iso file, right? >_>20:47
Jordan_Udawnson: Correct.20:47
dawnsonhm. why is this so complicated? T_T20:47
dawnsonediting the file on the unetbootin stick did not seem to work20:48
Jordan_Udawnson: What file did you edit, and what change did you make?20:48
dawnsoni changed /isolinux/langlist to only include the line en20:48
dawnsonwhich should skip the language select option20:49
Jordan_Udawnson: When booting via UEFI you're using grub, not isolinux.20:49
dawnsonhm hm hm20:49
dawnsonthen i need new instructions on how to make the installer unattended from OS X20:49
dawnsonor from archlinux20:50
dawnsonunfortunately it wants me to install the system-config-kickstart package which is not available on archlinux or for os c20:52
dawnsoncan someone install it and create a kickstart file for me with this command? >_> system-config-kickstart20:52
weeti thought you meant a kickstarter campaign20:52
weeti was like wat20:52
dawnsonit looks like it is more complicated than that20:53

samthewildonebekks, it keeps giving me an error, I'm unable to configure it.21:00
Jordan_Udawnson: If not, the kvm method will definitely work, just be sure to install ssh in the VM before trying to reboot in case your keyboard doesn't work in the installed system either.21:01
bekkssamthewildone: Which error prevents you from opening the config file with a text editor?21:01
samthewildoneok configuring21:01
samthewildonebekks, which file do I edit ?21:01

dawnsoni tried several cheap and not so cheap logitech ones, wired and with a usb dongle as well as some razor and roccat ones21:30
=== Smither_ is now known as Smither
Jordan_Udawnson: Your problem likely is caused by needing a kernel module which is available in /lib/modules/ but isn't included in the initramfs. That would explain why the installer failes but the Live system doesn't. That would mean that once installed, Ubuntu server would work with your keyboard.21:33
Guest9568can anyone here vouch for boot-repair? I ran ntfsfix on my Windows 8 drive and now I can't boot to it21:33
Jordan_UGuest9568: Use Windows' chkdsk for repairing ntfs filesystems.21:33
dawnsonJordan_U: yes, (but the deskop installer works fine as well), thats what i am trying to do. I hope that the installer stick i am creating now will work correctly. previously i had edited a wrong file and overwritten the values in there, now i have to start over21:34
dawnsonunfortunately it takes forever, because the image includes a lot of crap i dont need21:34
Jordan_Udawnson: The desktop installer uses a full root filesystem rather than staying within the initramfs, that's why it works.21:35
__Myst__Why does setting $DISPLAY to "localhost:0.0" case an infinite log-in loop?21:35
dawnsonJordan_U: and why are these not included in the initramfs?21:35
__Myst__Every time I try to log-in It sends me back to the log-in screen21:35
__Myst__Removing the "export DISPLAY='localhost:0.0'" line fixed it.21:35
Jordan_Udawnson: Oversight most likely.21:36
dawnsonJordan_U: any ideas if/when this might get changed?21:36
k1l___Myst__: is that a setting that should work at all?21:36
__Myst__k1l_: I wanted to set $DISPLay for feh21:37
__Myst__Cause feh doesn't set my display when I run it from cron21:38
Jordan_Udawnson: If you can figure out what module needs to be added to support your hardware and file a bug report with that information it should be a one line fix (which wouldn't immediately take affect in the installation media).21:38
k1l___Myst__: i dont think the xserver is listening for tcp connections at all21:38
dawnsonhmm no idea what that would be21:38
__Myst__k1l_: How do I change my wallpaper periodically then?21:39
__Myst__Also, what is ctrl+alt+f1 useful for?21:39
__Myst__I mean, I just used it to remove that line from my .bashrc; But I see no other use.21:39
k1l___Myst__: ctrl+alt+f1 is tty121:39
k1l___Myst__: what desktop are you running?21:40
__Myst__k1l_: Yeah, I know it's a terminal. But whatis its purp?21:40
Jordan_Udawnson: If you can figure out how to do so without the keyboard working, running "lsmod" in the initramfs then again after switching to the full filesystem (with the keyboard then working) and comparing the two it would proably be obvious which additional module relates to your USB keyboard.21:40
__Myst__k1l_: I3 is what my WM is. is that related?21:40
k1l___Myst__: of course its related if you ask about trouble with setting the wallpeper21:40
__Myst__k1l_: I'm running i3.21:40
dawnsonyes, but how can i run lsmod without the keyboard working? its an egg/henn problem, isnt it?21:41
k1l_but if you know everything and just rant about stuff you dont understand i loose motivation to help you21:41
__Myst__k1l_: me?21:41
=== adante_ is now known as adante
Jordan_Udawnson: You could pass "init=/sbin/lsmod" as a kernel parameter, which will cause lsmod to be run (followed by a kernel panic when it exits :).21:43
__Myst__KernelPanic? What's that?21:43
TJ-dawnson: You can break inside the initrd, using "break=XXXX" on the kernel command-line, where XXXX is some place to break21:44
traekiliinit=/bin/bash ?21:44
TJ-dawnson: to discover the active XXXX options you can choose do: "grep maybe_break /usr/share/initramfs-tools/init"21:45
traekilithen lsmod21:45
TJ-dawnson:  I'd suggest "break=modules"21:45
Jordan_UTJ-: Then how would dawnson run lsmod, given that they at that point will have no ability to use their keyboard? For some background, we think that their keyboard requires a kernel module that is included in /lib/modules/ but is not included in their initramfs, and we want to figure out what module that is.21:45
xmountso im new to web developing and would like to learn how and know what the best way to learn it is?21:45
Jordan_Udawnson: Actually, from archlinux (or an Ubuntu LiveCD/USB) on the system in question please run "lspci -k" and "lsusb".21:46
dawnsonok, one moment21:46
TJ-Jordan_U: At that point, if dawnson is lucky, the BIOS Legacy USB driver will still be active21:46
dawnsoni finish up the usb stick then walk over and run the command and try to set it21:46
dawnsonTJ-: it is active21:46
dawnsonJordan_U: how do i get the output to you from that machine? :s21:49
dawnsonis there a way to pipe it to pastebin or something?21:49

Jordan_Udawnson: Ubuntu 15.04 does *not* have xhci-pci included in its initramfs, so that is almost certainly the problem you're hitting. The bug has been fixed upstream in Debian, and therefore will be in the next release of Ubuntu. If you'd like it backported to Ubuntu 15.04 please file a new bug report with "ubuntu-bug initramfs-tools" and say that you are hitting Debian bug #773250 and that you would like the fix applied ...22:19

OerHeksNightKhaos, i believe the server needs resume enabled, clients are usually ready22:20

schnitzgeneral question: how does ubunutu / ubuntu cope with changing mainboards 'under its feet'? Both AMD boards, but different sizes / versions.... thinking of just swapping boards... will I need to completely reinstall ubuntu?22:30
reisioschnitz: no, but you may need to reconfig22:30
schnitzit should still boot though, right...22:30
reisioschnitz: any onboard devices you're relying on, audio, graphics, etc., disk controllers22:31
reisioit may well still boot22:31
reisioif it doesn't you can fix it from your install media (without reinstalling)22:31
schnitzof course, no garantuee22:31
schnitzhave no install media... will an ISO do?22:31
reisiothe kernel is very fat, made for lots of hardware22:31
reisiomost any Unixy live OS, yes22:31
schnitzseems worth trying... thanks for letting me know :-)22:32
ObrienDave__Myst__, TTY222:33
ObrienDave__Myst__, can do #1 thru 6. iirc22:33
__Myst__ObrienDave: How do I choose?22:36
dawnsonJordan_U: do you think adding an insmod line to grup will work?22:37
sarkie(since no one replied in elementary)  hi all, ive managed to mess up my elementaryos, with nvidia uninstaller and apt-get, so now I've lost network-manager I think so can't connect on it, I'm dual booting with windows, is there a way I can overwrite the installation with the live cd so I don't lose /home and whatever? maybe apt-cdrom?22:38
bekkssarkie: We have no clue about Elementary OS.22:38
ubottuElementary OS is an Ubuntu derivative which is supported in their IRC channel #elementary on irc.freenode.net - http://elementaryos.org/ for more information on this distribution.22:38
ObrienDave__Myst__, CTRL-ALT F1 thru F6 are the terminal shortcuts22:38
__Myst__oh okay22:38
__Myst__What can I use them for?22:39
sarkiebekks: imagine if it was ubuntu, is it possible?22:39
bekkssarkie: My imagination is sufficient to magically make Ubuntu out of ElementaryOS.22:39
LavaLampShade_Guest12955_, silly question, but did you make that window sticky to all windows?22:40
dawnson:O it is installing the system. i hope it finishes :322:45
dawnsonso close. but i hope i can fix this one22:46
kokuthello, anyone knows if clamv is really needed? how can i remove it?22:47
Bashing-om!virus | kokut22:49
ubottukokut: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to Windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus22:49

reisiokokut: remove it as with any other app22:52
dionysus69hey all i have an emergency, first I edited something I shouldnt have in disk util, I changed "identify as" values of the partitions including the root partition and now it drops me to some root of some weird dir, basically I can assume it cant even mount the root partition, so now I booted with the advanced option called "upstard" in the grub menu, how??? what is upstart and how do I change the values back so I can boot regularly???22:53
dionysus69upstart* i meant22:53
Dumle29i know nothing, other that I'd just boot with a live CD and revert the things I did in your case22:54
dionysus69Dumle29: I dont have to boot live cd, I am in the system I could only boot using the upstart option in grub22:55
dionysus69i dont even know what is upstart before there were only two options, regular and recovery22:55
Dumle29dionysus69: No idea what that is :P Upstart is the service management system (that they replaced with systemmd in 15.04)22:55
dionysus69well I dont know what upstart is in my case but i have heard about that when I googled22:56
Dumle29Again. I'd just boot with a live cd (or usb) and fix it from there22:56
dionysus69can you tell me how you have it there22:56
dionysus69open disk util22:57
dionysus69change mount options22:57
dionysus69what is there written for "identify as"22:57
dionysus69i ll try selecting the same option i just dont remember which one was by default22:57
Dumle29For my main disk?22:57
dionysus69i mean for the root partition yes22:57
dawnsondoes the installer write a log file to the disk if an error appears, even if you just reboot the PC without exiting the installer?22:58
dionysus69do you use efi partition too?22:58
Dumle29dionysus69: http://imgur.com/5ctMlaS22:59
dionysus69does it say same for "matches the device with the given uuid" for efi partition?23:00
Dumle29I'm not entirely sure what you are asking23:01
dawnsonhmmm ok, the installation completed, then i got a "bootin in insecure mode" message and now i have a black screen23:01
dionysus69well your root partition is identiffied by the uuid23:02
dionysus69thats what it said below the line you deleted in the screenshot23:02
Dumle29dionysus69: That's just the UUID of my harddisk23:02
dionysus69ye i know but i changed the indentify option of my own hard dist to something else than uuid23:02
dionysus69was wondering what i had to put it back to23:03
dionysus69problem is that i change efi partition too haha23:03
Dumle29dionysus69: I have 5 options, 4 of which start with /dev/ the one selected in there just starts with UUID23:03
=== bazhang_ is now known as bazhang
dionysus69ye will try with that one now23:03
Bashing-om!nomodeset | dawnson Maybe ?23:03
ubottudawnson Maybe ?: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter23:03
dionysus69thanks :)23:03
dawnsonhm somehow it worked now23:04
dawnsoni hope it works always now23:04
Bashing-omdawnson: Is that a YAHHH !23:04
dawnsonlet me try a reboot :D23:05
dawnsonthen we can get excited23:05
dawnsonbut first i will isntall the available updates23:06
usermehello how do u test mtu on linux23:08
=== dio is now known as Guest28410
bekksuserme: Just take a look at "ifconfig".23:10
usermethe what mate23:10
usermethanks mate got it23:12
usermeits telling me a number can i test it for correct size23:13
sixunhuitGot a question, should I just "ask away"?23:13
tewardsixunhuit: yes, just ask23:13
teward(don't ask to ask)23:13
usermeu can ping a mtu size but not sure how on linux23:14
bekksuserme: "ping a mtu size"?23:14
bekksThat doesnt make sense.23:14
usermeyeah like on windows u can do open a command and type likw google and a size 1472 and says fragmemted or not23:15
bekksuserme: So you want to produce packets with a specific MTU size?23:16
usermein my ps4 downloads going slow and i am trying find correct mtu size on it was 1500 before23:17
TJ-userme: "ping -M [ do | want | dont]" - see "man ping"23:18
bekksuserme: So just use 1500 if you are using a local network.23:18
darthanubisuserme, are you using ppoe as an internet connection?23:18
usermeive tried from 1472 upto 1500 and like 2 gigs 4hrs23:19
usermeim on fibre optic23:19
bekksuserme: The PS4 has no fibre optic network interface.23:19
darthanubisthen leave it at 1500. MTU is not your issue23:19
darthanubisps4 doesnot need a fibre connection23:20
darthanubisit's plugged into his lan23:20
bekksSo he has a local network and should not change the MTU of 1500.23:20
usermeps4 to fibre router with ethernet.  on ps4 network settings can set mtu, dns, static ips.  as the downloads was going slow on some sites say use correct mtu like 1472, 1492. 1500. so im on my laptop findin mtu on linux23:22
darthanubismtu is not your problem23:23
usermedoes speed downloads up if u can find what isp using23:23
darthanubisno one changes from 1500 since about 2000, maybe 199923:24
darthanubisbut on fibre, that's the least of your concerns23:24
usermethat ifconfig just said 150023:24
sixunhuitI switched to ubuntu recently, and I used to trouble shoot my windows quite often, even if no problem was apparent. I would like to do the same thing : keeping an eye on the logs for example. That doable? I tried but figuring out stuff that should be there from stuff that should be investigated is not yet in my skill set.23:25
__Myst__Man I love vim23:25
psusiuserme, tracepath will probe the path MTU23:25
__Myst__I just split a string into three columns and made it a list of cha23:25
__Myst__('x', 'y', 'z')23:25
__Myst__In like three commands23:25
dionysus69I fixed it, I just had to put mount point at / instead of /mnt/UId etc... not my fault disk util changed it itself while I changed different thing :S23:26
TJ-userme: the MTU is set by the encapsulation used ... if the link is encapsulating in PPPoE then 1492 is the usual setting23:26
psusidarthanubis, gigabit ethernet supports jumbo frames so a larger mtu there is useful at least for local communications23:26
usermeon my old adsl was 1500 now on fibre saying 1492. 1472.23:27
darthanubispsusi, yeah, but he is worried about non lan connections If I understand him/her23:27
usermeim a him23:27
psusiuserme, your ISP must be using the stupid pppoe protocol, which adds its own 8 byte header23:27
usermeoverheads of 2823:27
psusii.e. you have to "dial up" with a username and password to establish internet connectivity23:28
TJ-userme: yeah, baby jumbo frames aka EFC4638 allowed 1508 for the Ethernet frame so that the PPP payload could be a full 150023:28
darthanubis"The normal MTU (Maximum Transmit Unit) value for most Ethernet networks is 1500 Bytes, or 1492 Bytes for PPPoE connections. For some ISPs you may need to reduce the MTU ,but this is rarely required, and should not be done unless you are sure it is necessary for your ISP connection."23:28
usermethere is good program tcp optimizer dont work on linux23:28
darthanubislast used that in 199723:28
darthanubisin windows xp23:29
Nothing_MuchI have a question, when will Audacity 2.1.0 be introduced into Ubuntu?23:30
TJ-userme: Are you on FTTH or VDSL (FTTC) ?23:30
TJ-userme: OK so the modem will be using PPP23:31
psusiNothing_Much, possibly in 15.10 assuming someone bothers to package it23:31
Nothing_Muchpsusi, Blah23:31
sixunhuitusing : sudo reboot results in black lines (with bits of colors) over the ubuntu logo23:35
leafybasilI'm referencing a shell script in a .desktop file to load DWM with some config before hand, for some reason xmodmap and setxkbmap are not being run/applied, anyone know why?23:35
reisioleafybasil: from within X?23:36
reisiomight need to use DISPLAY=:0 (etc.)23:36
leafybasilreisio, sorry can you give a bit more detail and I can look it up?23:36
reisioleafybasil: try: DISPLAY=$(ps aux | egrep -o 'X :[\.0-9]+' | head -1 | cut -d ' ' -f 2) script23:39
asmodai_hi I'm having an issue with my wallpaper. each time I switch back on my screen forgets the one I set.23:40
leafybasilsorry reisio i have no idea what that would mean.23:40
reisioreplace 'script' with your script23:40
jeeves_mosswhat is the simplest way to jail a user to their home dir?23:41
ObrienDavelock 'em up ;P23:41
reisiojeeves_moss: to what end23:41
asmodai_remove permissions for that user23:41
leafybasilreisio, sorry i missed that, i'll give it a whirl shortly23:41
jeeves_mossI would say slap 'em23:41
reisiojeeves_moss: ...uhyeah?23:42
jeeves_mossreisio, we have some web programmers who are being difficult and claim they want shell access.  The manager is an idoit push over, so I'm being pushed into giving them access.  The last programmer made a MESS out of the OS, so I need to keep them jailed into their home dir (ie. the web root of the project they're working on).23:42
reisiohow'd he make a mess of the OS without root?23:44
leafybasilreisio, "ps aux | egrep -o 'X :[\.0-9]+' | head -1 | cut -d ' ' -f 2" on it's own returns nothing23:45
jeeves_mossreisio, they started to reference OS files in their web code, etc.  lets just say I ended up with this mess dropped on my desk.23:45
reisioleafybasil: then X probably isn't running23:46
reisiojeeves_moss: so they didn't make a mess of the OS, they just told your boss that they needed more access because no workie blah blah?23:46
reisioasmodai_: I'm a one23:46
leafybasilreisio, how comes I can use xsetroot and xset ?23:47
asmodai_lol you sure?23:47
ObrienDavei'm not any ;P23:47
reisioleafybasil: probably because X is running23:47
jeeves_mossreisio, yea. I know this guy is a lazy joke, so I'm being forced to jump through hoops in order to prove he's full of it so I can fire him23:47

linuxuz3ri hope someone can help me23:48
reisiojeeves_moss: what if he complained about his jail?23:48
jeeves_mossthen I tell him to suck on it.23:48
reisiocouldn't you do that already and save yourself the trouble?23:49
TJ-linuxuz3r: that looks pretty serious, has the system had bad RAM modules that have caused disk contents to be corrupted?23:49

intekit wont allow for install23:50
asmodai_ahh think i got it. I remember what I did wrong23:51
leafybasilreisio, you're not making much sense, in the same file, three lines before I can use xsetroot, but I xmodmap does nothing.  Surely X is loaded?23:52
Zack263are there any free magazine on webdesign or coding in the ubuntu store?23:53
OerHeksZack263, no, but there are on fullcirclemagazine23:53
Zack263oh yes i see it, thanks i'll check it out23:54
reisioleafybasil: surely23:54
Zack263i should make a free magazine we need more23:55
Zack263oh snaps its not free23:55
OerHeksFCM are all free.23:55
OerHekshttp://fullcirclemagazine.org/downloads/ and http://fullcirclemagazine.org/special-editions/23:55
