ubottuTo access CPU temperature sensors and detect fan speeds, install the lm-sensors package. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SensorInstallHowto for installation and usage instructions.07:15
RudyValenciaI can't recall if it happened before or after installing the nVidia driver.07:16
RudyValenciaI am not using it at the moment, because I'm back on Windows.07:16

histoRudyValencia: what were you doing when it overheated?07:19
RudyValenciaI was just using it as normal07:19
RudyValenciaalso I was trying to set up Windows in VMware07:19
RudyValenciabefore it shut off the screen went black a couple times07:19
fury__RudyValencia: I have only used it on a laptop but you could install tlp07:23
fury__is very smart and efficient07:23
histoRudyValencia: is this a laptop or a desktop machine?07:23
histoRudyValencia: make sure all your fans are clean. You were probably hammering the cpu setting up the VM07:24
RudyValenciait has a Corsair liquid-cooled radiator attached07:24
RudyValenciaunder Windows at idle I get ~29 deg. C07:24
fury__RudyValencia: lol it is almost definitely a driver issue07:24
histofury__: why do you think that?07:24
histoRudyValencia: check it under linux at idle07:25
RudyValenciasounds like a plan07:25
histosetting up a VM is not idle07:25
fury__setting up some VMs should not cause such a behaviour07:26
fury__RudyValencia: You should also try to set up VM in windows07:26
histofury__: it will peg the cpu to 100%07:26
* histo thinks cooling problem07:27
RudyValenciaI can run VMs in windows without the box going down07:27
RudyValenciadoes it matter that I installed the driver using the nVidia-supplied .run package instead of the nvidia-current package in the repo?07:28
histoRudyValencia: Why do you suspect video to it down?07:29
histoRudyValencia: Your bios doesn't monitor the video cards temperature. Just the cpuss07:29
RudyValenciaI've checked my setup, it stays cool on Windows07:30
fury__so you think it is not the CPU but the GPU? That is a lot more plausible07:31
RudyValenciait has to be something07:31
RudyValenciaunder nouveau I wasn't having problems07:31
RudyValenciabut nouveau doesn't do acceleration07:31
RudyValenciait was when the nvidia driver was installed that it started acting up07:32
RudyValenciaI couldn't get the repo-supplied one to install07:32
fury__I have a GTX650 on my desktop and it worked like a charm with drivers from nvidia07:33
fury__on the laptop however, where I have some AMD thing I lost 3 days makign it work properly, I was overheating too07:34

reconx2Can someone may help me ?08:36
reconx2I use script to run device. The script is: usb_modeswitch -v 0x12d1 -p 0x1446 -M 55534243000000000000000000000011060000000000000000000000000000 -V 0x12d1 -P 0x1436 -s 50 -m 0x0usb_modeswitch -v 0x12d1 -p 0x1446 -M 555342408:39

erhanahmetHi, I have a laptop pre-installed Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS and it is working fine. I am missing some drivers for 14.04 LTS so my question is here: can I continue to use 12.04 LTS after the 5-year-support time ends? How may it effect my personal/home use?09:24
linuxrI suspect its just some library missing, don't know which one though09:24
OerHekslinuxr, you will need lame codecs to record mp309:25
linuxrOerHeks, I'm not recording mp. Its rather decoding mp3 for burning to cd09:26
neurotlinuxr so your wanting to make a cd to play in a cdplayer out of some mp309:31
linuxrprecisely, neurot09:32
linuxrthats what the .cue file is for...its read by the burning software and splits up the mp3 into individual tracks09:33

linuxrneurot, I'd like to avoid k3b as this would pull in almost entire KDE libs...I don't use KDE09:34
OerHeksI prefer k3b over brassero or whatever is available.09:35

DDRHi all. Ubuntu in gnome-classic mode keeps doing this thing where I'm going along, going along, and then my screen turns black, a few seconds pass, and I am back at the login screen with my session apparently killed.11:50
BluesKajHowdy folks11:51
DDRIt happens a few times a day, apparently at random. Last time, a file I had open was corrupted.11:51
DDRHas anyone experienced anything similar? I'm at a complete loss how to debug it. :(11:51
tomtomtomHi, I'm running a NAS on ubuntu with a 4hdd raid5. Last week I was running apt upgrade and got a read failed message on one of the disks thats part of the raid. I checked mdadm and it said that this disk failed, the hdd indication light of the case was disabled, too. I've now checked the drives with seatools on windows (SMART and short selftest), and they all passed.11:52
tomtomtomI'm wondering if that has something to do with grub, bc it happend right after grub configuration11:52
Nokajibazhang: FYI, I looked at a typical example run of regionset, region 1 corresponded to 0xFFFFFFFE, this gave me enough confidence to assume whatever region value is set, is deducted from the number FFFF (Hexadecimal), I did a re- setregion and it confirms I now have region2 set -  now to try my blu ray disc ...11:53

drdozerin the kde mixer, there is a playback device for HDMI and the volume is set to 100%13:36

ioriaTj- seems he has an 'advanced options' menu17:07
EriC^^TJ-: ^17:07
ciaranki do but its only to rescue a broken installation :/17:07
TJ-Probably where it got hidden then17:07
TJ-For future reference, the BIOS and UEFI boot menus for server ISO (14.04) are the same even though BIOS is using isolinux (syslinux) not GRUB17:08
EriC^^TJ-: his installer isn't seeing his ssd17:08
TJ-EriC^^: Firmware controller mode issue - AHCI/RAID/IDE ?  ... UEFI/BIOS ?17:09
ciarankT his motherboard only has bios, no uefi, my nios is detecting my ssd but the installer isnt seeing it17:09
ioriaciarank, i think msdos is deprecated with ssd.... but not sure17:10
EriC^^wth is wrong with flash lately, i get 95'c cpu temps and now irc is in slow motion17:10
ciarankonce i have the usb created i will see what my bios settings are, cant remember off the top of my head now17:10
TJ-ciarank: If it's SATA, which SATA version does the SATA controller on the motherboard support, and what does the SSD support?17:10
TJ-ciarank: I've seen systems where the controller and drive won't agree to talk at SATA 2 (or 3) and have to be forced to use SATA 1 (1.5Gbps link)17:11
* EriC^^ remembers he installed fglrx-updates lately17:11
zzo38The xterm bell also doesn't work when I compile XTerm(271) from source17:11
EriC^^still flash is going bazerk though17:11
ciarankit supports sata 3Gb/s, the ssd im sure is 6Gb/s17:11
zzo38So possibly I misconfigured it and made the same mistake when configuring XTerm(297)?17:12
TJ-ciarank: Checking for that means, in the installer, getting to a root prompt and checking the output of 'dmesg' looking for SATA link negotiation issues17:12
TJ-EriC^^: flash, as in flash memory?17:12
EriC^^ever since the vulnerability update it's been hogging the cpu a lot17:13
TJ-EriC^^: Oh! ... disabled that pile of 0-days ages ago!17:13
ciarankpretty sure theres a solid reason that its getting phased out17:13
TJ-The only thing with more vulnerabilities is Microsoft Windows OS it seems, but vulnerabilities per line of code must be highest in Flash17:14
ciarankim booting into a live ubuntu desktop!17:16
tewardgeneric question, but does anyone know of a USB 3.0 ethernet adapter that works out of the box with Ubuntu without any real additional driver installations?17:17
looseboltonWhy does dual booting have to be such black magic :/ I want to switch from Ubuntu to Arch but I'm afraid I'll mess up grub somehow17:18
looseboltonI guess I could just shrink my Ubuntu partition instead of getting rid of it17:21
TJ-loosebolton: don't allow Arch to install a boot-loader, or remove the Ubuntu GRUB and let Arch's GRUB do it. Don't keep both around else they'll both try changing the same files17:22
looseboltonYes, that's what I'm planning17:22
looseboltonI'll just add arch to ubuntu's menu17:22
Kalkarloosebolton; why would you like to switch to arch?17:23
looseboltonI'd like to learn more about how everything works together, and I think it would be easier to do when everything isn't already set up out of the box17:23
Kalkarloosebolton; then switching to arch is probably a very stupid idea17:24
looseboltonhow so?17:24
vigilant_Hello! I was using steam without problems for many months and today it suddenly wont start and gives me this error: "SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred17:24
vigilant_X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)" help!17:24
Kalkarloosebolton; ubuntu isn't windows, it is linux17:24
Kalkarloosebolton; you can always reconstruct it to your liking17:24
vigilant_I even tried to reinstall steam, after purging and deleting all things steam17:24
Kalkarloosebolton; in the process, you'll learn quite a bit17:24
TJ-loosebolton: When update-grub runs it has a script /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober that scans all file-systems it can find and if it finds a valid OS adds its entry to the grub.cfg.  So you don't want GRUB installed in more than 1 OS else the boot loader config might get confused as both attempt to make changes if they update files (e.g. kernels)17:24
Kalkarloosebolton; trust me17:24
Kalkarloosebolton; reconstructing ubuntu isn't that difficult, considering you have an internet connection and a USB drive with a distro installed since if nothing goes wrong, you can always switch over to the live distro on the USB, find a solution to the problem, and apply it on ubuntu17:26
Kalkaranything goes wrong*17:26
vigilant_X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)" anyone can help? I even reinstalled steam and deleted everything first.17:27
vigilant_Hello! I was using steam without problems for many months and today it suddenly wont start and gives me this error: "SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred17:28

BluewolfHi all, I am trying to install Ubuntu 14.04 Gnome on my laptop Samsung i7-2675QM using a usb drive, but I don't know how to get it to boot of the drive. My settings in the bios are to boot off the usb drive before CD/DVD rom and Hard Drive. Any suggestions?17:41
ioriaNokaji, sorry to hear that17:41
TJ-u0m3: what kind of USB device? usually it requires blacklisting a driver, or do you need something more subtle?17:41

ObrienDaveremove the USB after installing ;P18:00
ioriavigilant_, don't you remember if you installed fglrx or you had the default driver ?18:00
vigilant_ioria: I never installed any driver for this card before today.18:00
vigilant_ioria: it just worked perfect at installtime18:01
ioriavigilant_, sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx*18:01
vigilant_ioria: and then reboot :)18:02
ioriavigilant_, yes18:02
vigilant_ioria: now it looks good again thanks :)18:03
wileeeBluewolf, Besides the bios choice you can do this per-session (boot) of what is booted, This sounds like uefi computer if so state that.18:04
ioriavigilant_, better ask to steam players :-)18:04
vigilant_ioria: where are they hiding?18:04
ioriavigilant_, :-þ maybe here18:04
vigilant_ioria: haha :D18:04
vigilant_Anyone else in here with steam problems today who managed to resolve them?18:05
tgm4883vigilant_: what kind of steam problems?18:05
vigilant_tgm4883: it worked perfect until today when I got this message on startup from terminal : 'SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred18:06
vigilant_X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)18:06
vigilant_tgm4883: and then I do an uninstall purge all files away and then reinstall and same error.18:06
tgm4883vigilant_: nope, running fine here18:06
vigilant_tgm4883: funny thing is that my crossover steam still works ;)18:06
tgm4883just fired it up18:07
vigilant_I can emulate windows steam but not run linux steam, its crazy18:07
Bluewolfwileee: Pardon my knowlage on the laptop, its a friends. There is no option in the bios to directly boot off the device nor will it run on the OS on it when I plug the USB in (The OS currently installed is Ubuntu 14.04)18:08
tgm4883vigilant_: when you say you purge all files, does that include the files in your home dir?18:08
Bluewolf uefi?18:08
vigilant_tgm4883: all the steam things, I read a howto uninstall steam on google and followed the steps18:08
tgm4883vigilant_: odd, nothing else changed?18:09
wileeeBluewolf, Should you be doing this to a friends computer with this little of understanding, personally I'm not gonna touch this anymore.18:09
vigilant_tgm4883: 'sudo apt-get remove steam' 'sudo apt-get purge steam'' rm -rf ~/.local/share/Steam && rm -rf ~/.steam'18:10
vigilant_tgm4883: then I reinstalled18:10
tgm4883vigilant_: I meant nothing else changed from the last time it worked?18:10
vigilant_tgm4883: nope18:10
vigilant_tgm4883: it installed fine, updated lots of files, but then when it wanted to startup the same error18:10
tgm4883vigilant_: what video card?18:11
vigilant_tgm4883: never had this problem before. Amd rv73018:11
Bluewolfwileee: Look, the friend in question knows less than I do. All I am trying to do is reinstall it via USB which its not booting off or even running in the ubuntu OS installed.18:11
TJ-Bluewolf: what is the make/model of PC?18:12
tgm4883Bluewolf: so it has ubuntu on there already?18:13
BluewolfTJ-: Ah the make is samsung, as for the model I'm not sure as it does not say on the machine, is there a command I can enter in the terminal to find out?18:14
TJ-Bluewolf: "dmesg | grep DMI" should do it18:14
vigilant_I am wondering if I should get a new video card either a 'MSI GeForce210 1GB PhysX CUDA Low profil' or a 'ASUS GeForce GT 610 1GB Silent PhysX18:14
vigilant_GDDR3, DL-DVI-I, HDMI' would it be better than my amd rv730 for ubuntu?18:14
fallorewhats the best way to disable mouse acceleration in ubuntu? i've heard that the "xset m 00" is not the best to use18:14
wileeeBluewolf, You are getting support, you need to respect my unwillingness to help you and why.18:14
Bluewolftgm4883: Yes it has Ubuntu 14.04 on it, I want to put Ubuntu 14.04 Gnome as I don't like unity.18:14
TJ-Bluewolf: If the PC is already running Ubuntu, all you need to do is install the additional packages using "apt-get" or the Software Centre18:15
tgm4883Bluewolf: so do it via apt, don't bother with reinstalling the whole OS18:15
Bluewolfwileee: Indeed, and as us wish. Don't mean to bother, thanks for the help. :D18:16
tgm4883vigilant_: open source drivers?18:16
TJ-Bluewolf: as in "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop"18:16
vigilant_tgm4883: the ones ubuntu 15.04 uses automatically, didnt alter them at all18:17
Bluewolftgm4883: TJ-: I want a clean install. As I will be doing a dual boot as well.18:17
TJ-Bluewolf: OK, well if the USB device won't boot then first thing is to check the ISO download wasn't corrupted, by comparing the hash checksum against the list on the download pages18:18
tgm4883Bluewolf: how did you make the usb?18:18
TJ-Bluewolf: 2nd thing to try is if that USB device will boot on any other PC - if not, the image in it is likely corrupt and needs re-writing to it18:18
fallorewhere do i edit my start programs?18:18
BluewolfTj-: I doubt, At the time I downloaded and made my USB bootable I checked. And this os I am talking to you from is installed from that same usb. Also I seem to recall this friends laptop being a pain last time with a reinstall via USB.18:20
tgm4883vigilant_: well something must have changed18:21
Bluewolftgm4883: Startup Disk Creator I think18:21
vigilant_tgm4883: I just ordered the 'ASUS GeForce GT 610 1GB Silent PhysX18:22
vigilant_<vigilant_> GDDR3, DL-DVI-I, HDM' I bet its an amd error, its below the athloon 5000 mark which is where they put the line for updating the drivers the amd bastards18:22
tgm4883vigilant_: maybe. I've got an AMD card on open source drivers though18:22
vigilant_tgm4883: its maybe not as old as my 4650?18:23
tgm4883vigilant_: well WTF18:23
tgm4883vigilant_: thinking about it, I didn't start it on my AMD card previously. I've got the same error18:23
TJ-Bluewolf: without the model of the PC we're in no position to help since the issue is the PC - you're in front of it and have access to the firmware setup, we don't,18:23
tgm4883vigilant_: and there was a steam update last night...18:23
athanHey everyone - I can't seem to sign-in to my ubuntu desktop through ssh. I've installed openssh-server, but for some reason Doing `ssh athan@ip` won't accept my password18:23

tgm4883Bad valve! No biscuit18:23
athanit's asking for the password to the user, but rejects the correct one :\18:23
athanis there some group I need to add `athan` to?18:24
athan(This is on 15.04 btw)18:24
vigilant_tgm4883: so its a bug, I have no idea how to report those18:24
BluewolfTJ-: okay, how do I get the model number, where do I get it from the software side?18:24
tgm4883Bluewolf: 'sudo dmidecode | grep -i Product'18:25
TJ-Bluewolf: As I said before: "dmesg | grep DMI" should do it18:25
BluewolfOkay one moment18:25
BluewolfTJ-: tgm4883: Okay here - Product Name, 700Z3A/700Z4A/700Z5A/700Z5B18:29
tgm4883Bluewolf: and you want to dual boot what?18:30
TJ-Bluewolf: so this is thw Win8 user manual for that model I think http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201210/20121028104609083/Win8_Manual_eng.pdf18:31
tgm4883vigilant_: when is the last time you successfully started steam? come to think of it, I probaby didn't start steam on my AMD card yesterday18:31
Bluewolftgm4883: Windows 7 which appears to already be there, I guess I won't go through the hassle of reinstalling that as I don't have a windows disk.18:32
boot13Anyone know how to fix an unbootable system that shows error: symbol not found: grub_divmod64_full?18:32
vigilant_tgm4883: I definitevely started it yesterday18:32
TJ-Bluewolf: See page 10218:33
vigilant_tgm4883: was trying out some new humble jumbo bundle stuff :)18:33
tgm4883Bluewolf: I'm super confused now. It's already dual booting, you've got a working install of Ubuntu on there, and you said yourself that the laptop is a pain to install on. Why not just use apt to install gnome shell?18:33
TJ-Bluewolf: The clue is in "If you need to boot to DOS using a USB device, enter the BIOS Setup, select Advanced menu and set the Fast BIOS Mode item to Disabled"18:36
tgm4883vigilant_: ok, I've got a fix18:37
vigilant_tgm4883: I tried to contact steam support, but it feels like a maze of sh't18:37
vigilant_tgm4883: :D :D :D18:37
vigilant_tgm4883: hurra18:37
Bluewolftgm4883: And that would completely remove every trace of unity?18:37
tgm4883vigilant_: "find ~/.steam/root/ \( -name "libgcc_s.so*" -o -name "libstdc++.so*" -o -name "libxcb.so*" \) -print -delete" from https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Steam#Steam_runtime_issues18:37
tgm4883Bluewolf: you could purge the unity stuff yes. This isn't windows where you need to reinstall the OS to fix 40% of the problems18:38
vigilant_tgm4883: I should run this command 'find ~/.steam/root/ \( -name "libgcc_s.so*" -o -name "libstdc++.so*" -o -name "libxcb.so*" \) -print -delete'  ?18:38
BluewolfTJ-: Page 102 is about changing the boot password, I dont get it. And the perpose of the Fast BIOS mode?18:39
tgm4883vigilant_: you're running 15.04 on open source amd drivers?18:39
=== NGC_6205_1 is now known as NGC_6205
vigilant_tgm4883: thats me18:39
wileeeunity is a tiny plugin in compiz sitting on top of gnome 3 that is a bad idea, has most of the shell already in place.18:39
vigilant_tgm4883: and then reboot?18:40
tgm4883vigilant_: ni18:40
Bluewolftgm4883: Old habits, truth is that I haven't been playing with this stuff for ages and have forgotten all the installation stuff. I feel bad :D18:40
TJ-Bluewolf: the BIOS config details start there, what little there is, and goes on to discuss the boot order options and the hint aobut disabling "Fast BIOS" mode which might the problem - Fast Boot (BIOS) mode usually means the default boot entry is loaded without first checking the boot devices for alternative boot loaders18:40
tgm4883vigilant_: just start steam after that18:40
vigilant_tgm4883: wooooow it woooorks :D :D :D18:40
vigilant_tgm4883: going to have to play all my adventure games to where I was before now though lol18:41
BluewolfTJ-: Okay should I go ahead and give it a try quickly?18:41
tgm4883vigilant_: it's just removing the steam libraries that point at the old mesa. It's using system libraries now18:41
TJ-Bluewolf: seems like a lot of un-necessary hassle if all you want is Gnome!18:41
=== Betal_j is now known as Betal
TJ-Bluewolf: but it might be useful as knowledge for the future to know if that is the cause18:42
tgm4883vigilant_: which means that A) a steam update in the future might mean you need to do that again, and B) it's possible you'll have some game instability since it's using newer libraries18:42
BluewolfTJ-: I find it easier, but yes it is useful to know. I'll give it a try18:42
vigilant_tgm4883: ahh, I think I might just buy me that nvidia. I dumpstered this whole computer :)18:43
vigilant_tgm4883: maybe the graphic card is too old18:43
tgm4883vigilant_: well to be fair, the newer libraries might give you better performance as well. But it's always nice to have new hardware18:43

BluewolfTJ-: Here is something interesting, there is no Fast boot in the bios, in Advanced. I do see Legacy USB support and UEFI Boot support (Which I don't know what it means)18:47
TheEagerPadawanif i would like to study for LPIC-1, what whould be a good source to start with?18:47
TJ-Bluewolf: Sounds like that 'Windows' user guide is as bad as it looked, with no real details and inaccurate info. "Legacy USB support" means the firmware provides drivers to access USB devices like keyboard/mice/mass-storage for the boot-loader to use until the operating system takes over18:49
TJ-Bluewolf: "UEFI boot support" probably means whether the system tries to boot first in UEFI mode, or tries Legacy BIOS mode18:49

=== roberto is now known as Guest93408
karmousy a quelqun18:54
TJ-Bluewolf: It sounds as if the machine is preventing the user from booting from removable media in some way, and the manual appears to contain incorrect information... I'd start with that. However, in the time you've spent messing about with this you could have done the "apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop" 100 times!18:54
tgm4883rebs: there appears to have been a change of bash between 14.10 and 15.0418:55
tgm4883rebs: a minor change though. It would probably help if we knew why you wanted to know that18:56
BluewolfTJ-: Okay fine, I'll do it. But that includes completely removing all traces of unity.18:56
rebswell its a bash question, so it would be off topic here18:57
TJ-Bluewolf: plenty of folks here can tell you how to remove Unity :)18:57
rebsor can i ask bash questions here18:57

AppAraathi, I am trying to automatically login to an LXDE session. The user has a password but I would like to get to the desktop after boot without password prompt.

mintuxthe output of libreoffice 4.* in jpg is broken. are there any same experience ?19:39
wileeeBluewolf, You're chasing a supposed street cred social/cultural bogus idea. Unity is tiny, it is a plugin in compiz, it is on top of what you just finished loading. It is just a DE not a political event, and removing it could really mess you up if done wrong and this is not even your computer. Only this is what I see.19:40
mintuxare there anyone have libreoffice 3.6 installation ?19:41
AppAraatthanks wileee, apparently it was using lightdm. It didn't have a /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf so I created it with "autologin-user=user" and "autologin-user-timeout=0" as the only two entries.19:42

maldridgegreetings all; I'm struggling to install drivers with ubuntu-drivers autoinstall, I want it to install proprietary drivers if there are any, otherwise install what is recommended, is there a way to do that?19:46
dawidd6maldridge what vendor?19:46
maldridgedawidd6: fglrx (amd)19:46
dawidd6maldridge: sudo apt-get install fglrx19:47
maldridgedawidd6: I have some machines that don't need fglrx though, which is why I was using ubuntu-drivers; is there a side effect to having it installed when not necessary?19:47
wileeeBluewolf, I don't doubt you're intentions are honorable, I just find them questionable in you taking the responsibility is all. that is all I will say, best of luck you will probably be fine.19:48
fallorewhen i play dota 2, using the alt button (which i use frequently) causes all sorts of trouble. it minimizes the game, it opens the right click dialog, etc. is there some way to disable all these shortcuts? i've looked in the keyboard settings menu but i dont see a lot of the problematic shortcuts19:50
wileeefallore, Unity desktop?19:50
dawidd6maldridge: i don't undestand you well, but i think it's not wrong to have proprietary and opensource drivers along side19:50
fallorewileee, i think so. fresh 14.04 install19:50
prwilsonanyone know how up-to-date fglrx-updates is compared to the amd catalyst download (current is 15.70)?  seems like ubuntu's version #s aren't in sync with amds19:51
DevilusHello, I recently bought 4 memory sticks of 8gb(32gb total), still ubuntu will detect only 16GB ram, what can I do?19:51
wileeefallore, menu on left of screen?19:51
fallorewileee, yes, which i hate :(19:51
transhumanhi how do i find the lvmid of a volume (I had to copy the boot sector from another install in order to recover19:51
prwilsonDevilus: sounds like an issue with your hardware.  the extra ram doesn't show up in the bios, does it?19:51
Devilusprwilson: actually it does, I looked up the setup, and it is there19:52
fallorewileee, i guess the problem is generally that the alt key is almost like the super key in windows? i think if i could change that most of my problems would go away19:52
Devilusprwilson: I also tried using lshw also shows it19:52
wileeefallore, Cool, there is a compizconfig setings manager you would install, the keybaord would be changed there, be very careful.19:52
wileeecareful with that manager overall19:52
maldridgedawidd6: I manage a large lab, some generations of hardware need fglrx, some don't.  I intend to use a single bootstrap script to get most of the system software installed and I was concerned if there are any adverse side effects to having fglrx installed when not needed19:53
prwilsonDevilus: what's not showing it?19:53
Devilusprwilson: free -m19:53
Devilusprwilson: I also tried gnome-system-manager, it is not shown there as well19:53
fallorewileee, is there like an overarching setting i can change so that alt doesn't do everything it does now? like could i make it the right alt, instead of left alt?19:53
prwilsonDevilus: are you running 64 bit ubuntu?19:53
Devilusprwilson: yep19:54
transhumanmaldridge it seems to work great, but I have noticed some things that concern me with the security of that solution. I could be wrong..I installed it on my kids machines but all of them failed a couple weeks after (just make sure you have a backup)19:54
wileeefallore, Not that I know of, as far as I know you have to hit each individually if customizing, however I have not had any issue needing this.19:54
Devilusprwilson: Not sure if it helps, but "sudo dmidecode --type memory" will also show all memory sticks19:55
fallorewileee, do you think getting rid of unity and using something else would fix the issue?19:56
Devilusprwilson: free -m will show only 16GB =/19:56
transhumananyone able to tell me how i find the lvmid?19:56
prwilsonDevilus: you aren't using xen are you?19:56
maldridgetranshuman: thanks for the info, my site keeps very good backups after a windows dc took a fileserver with it a few years ago19:56
mgolischtranshuman: what do you mean by that?19:56
transhumanwithout peeking at the one thats wrong in grub19:56
Devilusprwilson: I don't think so, what is xen?19:56
prwilsonDevilus: also make sure yoiu have the latest bios19:56
wileeefallore, I would not worry about unity being there personally, but for gaming I assume the lightest usable de would be my choice, but I don't game.19:57
mgolischwhy dont you just boot a livecd and let update-grub fix stuff?19:57
Devilusprwilson: I have the latest bios19:57
transhumanas I said I had concern over multiple failures on machines that I installed it a couple weeks later19:57
mgolischor what exactly is your issue?19:57
fallorewileee, do you know what the 2nd most common alternative might be? is openbox an alternative or does that replace something else?19:57
transhumancould be something or it could be nothing19:57
fallorealso does anyone know a good support channel specifically for ubuntu or linux gaming?19:58
maldridgefallore: you could try the planonlinux channels19:58
transhumanmgolish the whole first 1000MB of disk was wiped19:58
prwilsonDevilus: i don't know.  weird problem.  try resetting your bios and reseating your ram19:58
Devilusprwilson: It is also worth noting that the motherboard automatically sets the memory frequency to 1333, I have to set it to 1666 manually19:58
wileeefallore, Not sure really, that is sorta your area of investigation, although you will get subjective opinions on this.19:58
mgolischand there was nothing on that?19:59
prwilsonDevilus: see if it works at 1333.19:59
falloreof course wileee. thank you for your help, i'll start doing some research. was just hoping for a jumping-off point :)19:59
Devilusprwilson: k, let me check19:59
transhumannothing on what mgolisch19:59
mgolischlike iam not sure your lvm stuff will work if the lvm pv was partialy on those parts that were erased/overwritten19:59
transhumanthe first 1000 MB was wiped by an error19:59
wileeefallore, Sure I understand, best.20:00
transhumanI have created another disk with the same layout and same names only thing that remains wrong is the lvmid20:00
falloremaldridge, is playonlinux an app or a community?20:00
darkan app20:00
mgolischi think the lvm metadata is stored somewhere on the begining of the partition of the physical volume20:00
mgolischso its probably lost20:00
mgolischor do you lvm volumes actualy work?20:01
mgolischlike you can mount them successfully20:01
Devilusprwilson: Kind of helped, now at 1333MHz it recognizes a little bit more memory20:01
Devilusprwilson: 24GB20:01
mgolischlike if you do pvscan or vgscan or lvscan does it actualy list anything?20:01
Devilusprwilson: Seems like it somehow hardware related huh?20:02
prwilsonDevilus: yeah definitely.  at least you've got it recognizing more now.  i'd try reseating the ram and switching the chip locations when you do it.  you may also want to reset your bios.20:02

EriC^^boot sector? or mbr?20:05
maldridgefallore: its a package that helps make wine work for a ton of stuff, but they have a decent community20:05
fallorethanks maldridge, i asked my question, hopefully i'll get a response :)20:06
fallorewhats the best way to make ubuntu work more like windows/linux mint, where you have a panel, your windows on that panel, and a "start menu" of sorts? am i looking for a windows manager, a different desktop environment, or what? just need to know some basics so i can point my research in the right direction20:06
transhumanmbr and first 1000 MB which had boot volume20:06
transhumanI am sure I can get it working with the lvmid20:07
maldridgefallore: you're looking for a different DE, lxde is lightweight, cinnamon is very windows like if you're not in a networked environment20:07
mgolischchroot into the install, run blkid to get uuid for the /boot fs add it to correctly to your fstab and run update-grub20:07
maldridgeboth will be more windows like20:07
falloremaldridge, what exactly do you mean by networked environment?20:07
mgolischor manuyl add it to your grub.cfg20:07
maldridgefallore: network logon20:07
falloreah ok maldrige, thanks a lot. i was using and enjoying cinnamon on linux mint so i might try that again20:08
transhumanalready did the uuid no problem20:08
transhumanso I guess I will chroot into install problem is its on lvm20:08
maldridgefallore: cinnamon has a huge bug for networked environments right now, if you don't have that its great;  you can get it from a PPA20:08
mgolischthen all should be golden20:08
mgolischgrub would only need to access /boot to load its config and the kernels20:08
falloremaldridge, is lubuntu a different distro or just a reference to ubuntu using that specific DE?20:09
mgolischit shouldnt realy care for any of your lvm stuff20:09
maldridgefallore: both, it is an officially supported respin of ubuntu, but you can install lubuntu-desktop on regular ubuntu and get pretty much the same thing20:09
mgolischunless /boot was actualy within that20:09
fallorethank you for all the help maldridge. i'm going to jump in and do that, hopefully all goes well :)20:11
maldridgefallore: good luck; have fun!20:11
mgolischmaybe just run grub-install again just to be sure and update-grub to fix your grub.cfg from within the chroot20:11
Devilusprwilson: Good news :D20:12
Devilusprwilson: I just switched the chip locations, reseted the bios, all is running just fine, thanks a lot!20:12

bekkspaulmadore: Yeah.20:47
paulmadore2mins (thanks for yr help btw)20:47
maldridgeyeats: more like each user has an individually accessible share that is nfs based, and how else would you do homes on remote storage than nfs20:47
yeatsmaldridge: I've never been put in a situation where I would need to do that, so I don't know.  Perhaps someone else can help with that, but I would definitely recommend putting home directories on local storage in general20:49

RaulwynnI have a ubuntu support question: How can I get Steam to launch? I click and it does nothing. when I look into the issue it says I need 32-bit library so I type "sudo apt-get install ia32-libs" but I get this error "Package ia32-libs is not available, but is referred to by another package.20:50
RaulwynnThis may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or20:50
Raulwynnis only available from another source20:50
RaulwynnHowever the following packages replace it:20:50
Raulwynn  lib32z1 lib32ncurses520:50
maldridgedaftykins: nothing in the logs that I can see, but firefox and libreoffice are very slow, i assume that is related to them building profiles on disk, but I don't know how to confirm that20:50
RaulwynnE: Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate"20:50
yeatsmaldridge: this may provide some ideas: http://serverfault.com/questions/19323/is-it-feasible-to-have-home-folder-hosted-with-nfs20:51
daftykinsmaldridge: best test, quickly try a guest session which presumably would create a /home outside of your NFS mount (unless you mount the whole of /home there) then see if it behaves?20:52
paulmadorebekks: so now it doesn't throw that error when i load 3.19.0-15. i thought maybe i should try *-21 again, and i got th same thing. no reasoning, just put you over here into intframs where you don't know what you're doing paulmadore.20:53
paulmadorebut -15 is still working. which is fine by me, except there's a lot of updates that won't install at this point. i'm worried.20:53
maldridgedaftykins: firefox loads much faster, but libreoffice still feels sluggish (though it is an older version than I'm familiar with)20:53
maldridgeRaulwynn: you need to install the packages it said replace it20:54
paulmadorei noticed the new libreoffice is much cleaner on ram usage maldridge20:54
paulmadore4x i think it is20:54
paulmadorei use it daily for work20:54
wileeemaldridge, libreoffice is much faster in later editions.20:54

paulmadoreone second bekks20:55
wileeeopening anyway, strange to be sluggish in use.20:55
maldridgepaulmadore: wileee: I agree, I plan to update as soon as I can confirm it won't break anything20:55
paulmadoreThe upgrade needs a total of 69.0 M free space on disk '/boot'. Please free at least an additional 12.6 M of disk space on '/boot'. Empty your trash and remove temporary packages of former installations using 'sudo apt-get clean'.20:56
maldridgeso emacs loads files from the shares with no perceptible lag, it seems like its only things that are writing profile data20:56
bekkspaulmadore: So free up space by uninstalling old kernels.20:56
paulmadoreis it possible to uninstall say 21 whilst leaving 15?20:57
daftykinspaulmadore: yes, confirm package names with "dpkg -l | grep linux-image" bearing in mind corresponding -extra- packages must be removed prior to the main generic kernel packages20:57

ErfanBsEriC^^: There is nothing named history.log22:06

soulissonk1l_, ok, do you know what arguments are passed to systemd?22:07
EriC^^ErfanBs: my bad, /var/log/apt/history.log22:07
k1l_soulisson: that depends on the systemd scripts that are called for that service.22:07
soulissonk1l_, can you give me a simple example, when the service only requires one script?22:08
ErfanBsEriC^^: oh men, i can't work with XTerm, how i can get back Terminal ? i can't even copy and paste in XTerm :|22:08
OerHekssoulisson, good start to read http://www.howtogeek.com/216454/how-to-manage-systemd-services-on-a-linux-system/22:09
EriC^^ErfanBs: highlight the text, then press middle mouse button to paste, or shift+insert22:09
k1l_soulisson: i dont know what you are on about. every service need a script that tells the init what to do. that is still the same as upstart or init.d . its just different in the details where it looks for it and what it expects, see the link from OerHeks22:10
EriC^^i think you need to modify the list from history.log first to remove the ","22:10
metempOerHeks, Do you know it can/should be visible as a ttyUSB device ?22:10
EriC^^ErfanBs: if you have gedit paste the list there, and use the search & replace feature to replace the "," with ""22:11
soulissonk1l_, i just want to know if in this case systemctl calls the systemd executable, i know that systemctl is used to manage services22:12
OerHeksmetemp, sure, open terminal: lsusb, and it should show something like "Bus 002 Device 005: ID 072f:90cc Advanced Card Systems, Ltd ACR38 SmartCard Reader"22:12
k1l_soulisson: what "systemd executable"? systemd runs all the time, that is the sense behind an init system.22:13
EriC^^ErfanBs: you need to remove everything between the () too22:13
soulissonk1l_, /bin/systemd22:13
ErfanBsEriC^^: what about name:amd64 ?22:14
EriC^^that's ok22:14
OerHekssoulisson, i think it does not call systemD executable directly, it adresses to the service.22:14
EriC^^ErfanBs: do you need help with the brackets?22:14
soulissonOerHeks, thanks22:14
soulissonOerHeks, through a unix socket or something like that, right?22:15

sjmikemfirmware is iwlwifi-7260-10.ucode if that matters22:53
TJ-sjmikem: iwlwifi had a LOT of bugs with dropped connections and packets until recently; I'd suggest trying a mainline kernel build, v4.0 or v4.122:53

OerHeksmetemp, yes, lsusb shows you22:55
TJ-sjmikem: prior to the bugs, the module parameter 11n_disable=1 was supposed to work around most of the issues. With recent kernels that isn't needed and I find the devices use the full MIMI potential with few problems22:55

sjmikemalso some sites suggest it should be =8 instead of 1...23:00

sukuis there any way to force a monitor to display past its native resolution? i have an older netbook that has a 1024x600 resolution and it causes issues seeing menus fully - would love to try to force it to 1024x768 without panning and understand it would look stretched23:04

sjmikemfixed that and now "n" is no longer showing23:05
sjmikemstupid me23:05
ObrienDavesuku, LCD, no, CRT maybe but will probably cause damage23:06
