anthonymhey guys, hoping someone can help me.  I've set my network config to static, and now I can't resolve anything..  I've followed every howto under the sun to try to get it working again.  I added the nameserver manually to /etc/resolv.conf and it worked great, but that file gets overwritten all the time.  How do I fix it? thank you00:18
Bashing-omanthonym: Did you have network-manager installed at a prior time ?00:20
daftykinsanthonym: purge resolvconf, reboot, enter a nameserver into /etc/resolv.conf - be happy and enjoy :)00:21

Phrozen_Onedaftykins, are there best practices for those settings? Such as servers only listen locally and other "safe" choices? I'm just curious as to what happens if I were to install apache from the repos for instance.00:42

daftykinsPhrozen_One: i don't understand what you're trying to achieve00:43
Phrozen_Onedaftykins, I'm curious as to what the default settings are for server apps such as Apache when installed. Like does it listen on all interfaces, or just locally? I'm also curious as to what the default config of fail2ban is.00:44
x__tgm4883, 12.0400:44
tgm4883Phrozen_One: apache would listen on all interfaces. The defaults are set by the package maintainer00:44
daftykinsPhrozen_One: so browse to the configs and open them with a text editor to see :)00:44
tgm4883Phrozen_One: the easiest way is to install and look00:45
Phrozen_Onedaftykins, oh so just check out the apps *.conf file? I guess I was overthinking.00:45

haysuseBut on the PC it's just an empty unplayable file02:58
haysuseAnyone that can help with network transfer problems?03:04
wileeehaysuse, Safest way, an opinion is have a shared ntfs.03:04
haysuseThanks for the suggestion; this is sort of a really basic setup I have here03:05
haysuseI have a laptop running 14.04 and a PC running Win 7; with the file manager I can view the files on my Win 7 PC03:05
haysuseI wanted to transfer a file to that PC by just copying it from my local laptop, and pasting it in the Win 7 PC from the file manager03:06
haysuseThe file supposedly went through, and on my end I was able to use it correctly03:06
haysuseBut on the Win 7 PC, the file is just empty (size 0 bytes)03:06
haysuseand it's useless03:06

=== khan is now known as Guest63660

plytroblib: you can take the card out03:14
plytrothat will fix it :P03:14
plytrohaysuse: across networks or on the same network?03:14
plytrowas the file usable on ubuntu?03:15
plytrohonestly my windows/linux transfers always get done with winscp on the windows side03:16
haysusesorry plytro03:17
haysuseUh yeah across networks03:17
haysuseUbuntu -> Win 7 over windows "workgroup" file sharing03:17
haysuseThe file was usable on Ubuntu before transfer, and immediately after03:17
haysuseBut upon reconnecting to the PC the file was unusable after03:17
plytroso the windows machine is on another network03:17
plytrodifferent subnets and the like?03:18
blibhow do I find out if ubuntu server vs desktop is installed on my machine?03:18

haysuseBy now I can't even connect to the PC like I was able to before03:24
plytromy solution is to put winscp on the windows machine and use that03:25

IPhotonHello, I'm stuck in a login loop05:55
IPhotonI don't know what to do05:55
IPhotonI think it happened when I removed pulseaudio05:55
IPhotonWanted to install alsa instead05:55
ObrienDavepulseaudio and alsa are essentially the same. why would you do that?05:56
IPhotonI messed up :/05:58
IPhotonI was trying to play league of legends05:58
IPhotonAnd some guide said some stuff05:58
ObrienDave*face palms*05:59
IPhotonAnyway to get it back to normal?05:59
ObrienDavein terminal: sudo apt-get install --reinstall pulseaudio05:59
cfhowlettIPhoton, boot to the terminal.  reinstall your missing packages.  and be careful when relying on "some" guide to do "some" stuff05:59
ObrienDavei think05:59
IPhotonHow do I know which ones I need?06:00
FatarI found something they basicly said ctrl alt f1 to go to terminal, login then type sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop06:00
ObrienDaveit's a meta package. it will install what's missing06:00
IPhotonI also get the error "unable to connect to x11 display."06:00
cfhowlettIPhoton, you know what did to remove?  reverse it06:01
IPhotonWell I thought I did, but its not working06:02
IPhotonI tried to install both alsa and pulseaudio06:02
IPhotonAnd still did not work06:02
IPhotonI'll reboot now to see if ObrienDave's thing worked06:02
ObrienDavereboot is not needed06:03
IPhotonOh well, still didn't work06:03
ObrienDavethis is NOT windows ROFL06:03
IPhotonWhen the "unable to connect to x11 display. Is $display set?" Is on screen, that means its a video card problem?06:06

bruceleeif i add a ppa to my sources.list so theres a new package of "vim" there, how does apt-get know where to download vim from? what dictates whether "apt-get install vim" downloads from ppa versus the main ubuntu repositories?06:31
wileeebrucelee, ppa's are not supported however the apt looks for the latest package available on a update, in the ppa if the packages are there, grasshopper.06:32
bruceleewileee: what if the "vim" package exists in default ubuntu repos as well as the ppa?06:32
* brucelee bows down to wilee for the wisdom06:33
wileeebrucelee, why would you have the ppa then?06:33
bruceleewileee: like a modified version of vim for instance06:33
bruceleewileee: lets say i fork it, make some changes and created a new package called "vim"06:33
ObrienDavethe PPA is probably newer but official repos strive for stability06:33
bruceleei know ObrienDave but how does apt-get install vim know which one to download it from?06:34
ObrienDavewhich ever is newest06:34
wileeebrucelee, If modified and in a ppa there would be something there a name change probably, I agree newest.06:34
bruceleeObrienDave: how does it tell which is newest? what metadata does it look at?06:34
ObrienDaveversion number, grashopper ;P06:34

wileeebrucelee, I been waiting for you to come back so I could say that, thanks. ;) I use on occasion as a comic bump.06:35
bruceleeglad im of service06:35
ObrienDavebrucelee, when packages are automatically built, 99.999999999% of the time, version numbers increase06:36
bruceleei see06:37
ObrienDavewhether it be version or build number, it goes higher06:37
bruceleeyeah im not too familiar on how the process is, i didnt realize how the version numbers get applied, like if i made a change to a package, concievably someone could just host it without worrying about the version #06:37
ObrienDavethis is true06:37
bruceleebut yeah if its automatic, i guess it makes sense that version numbers should increment automatically06:38
ObrienDavei have several packages that get built every night. the contents might not change but the build number increases06:39
bruceleeah ok makes sense06:39

imrehggoose1244 what brand is it?07:28
aeon-ltd!ufw | irrep07:28
ubottuirrep: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities. 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/IptablesHowTo07:28

aeon-ltdrootware: with the performance hit you'd have to take to run in linux, you would need a high spec pc. and if you had money for a high spec pc you have money for windows. seriously other than 'cool' factor why?07:34

ObrienDaveummm, what make you think that it's adependency?08:19
ObrienDave* a dependency08:19
EriC^^Cholrabli: this is a long shot, but does your card have any switch or setting of some sort? googling says it was a setting on a tv that caused an error for someone08:19
CholrabliEriC^^: dont think so. also, that would mean that the sound wouldn't be working on w8. which is not the case08:20
Cholrabliso it looks like some driver / ubuntu related issue to me08:20
EriC^^yeah, i was thinking maybe ubuntu can't handle that setting or something, anyways nevermind08:21

EriC^^asansola: lilo is pretty old09:07
dylan_can anyone tell me how i get a gui for my mini install09:07

wafflejockCholrabli, not sure what you've tried but have you looked at the alsamixer or aplay?09:18
=== iulian is now known as Guest71401
wafflejockCholrabli, looks like someone mentioned it above but I don't see a response from you on that09:20
wafflejockCholrabli, when I've had audio issues getting that working first seems to be the first step09:20
Cholrabliwafflejock: no idea what I shuld do in alsamixer or aplay09:22
CholrabliI guess simply starting the program will not solve my issue?09:22
ObrienDavealsamixer will allow you to adjust volume levels to eliminate that potential issue09:23
dylan_hi guys09:24
dylan_the gui didnt show up afterall09:24
dylan_had to install startx09:24
dylan_so the minimal install is bad afterall:(09:24
dylan_i wanted to install xubuntu09:24
dylan_i installed using sudo09:24
dylan_reboot and no gui09:24
dylan_what have i done wrong09:24
k1l_dont use startx09:25
shiblydylan_: What commands did you run?09:25
dylan_i ran sudo apt-get xubuntu desktop09:25
wafflejockCholrabli, aplay just plays an audio file but doesn't depend on pulseaudio or any of the stuff above ALSA for doing the playback so good to be sure that's working or nothing else probably will... in the alsamixer you can unmute devices or adjust their levels, sometimes things get muted09:25
dylan_and it done everything i reboot09:25
k1l_dylan_: what did you install? did you install the *dm ? did you install the desktop you want?09:25
k1l_dylan_: xubuntu-desktop ? or without the - ?09:26
dylan_i installed sudo apt-get xubuntu desktop right09:26
dylan_and i reboot09:26
dylan_and no gui09:26
wafflejockCholrabli, they're just things you can run at the terminal, for alsa mixer you'll need to install alsa-utils I believe (sudo apt-get install alsa-utils)09:26
dylan_so i cant figure out why09:26
k1l_dylan_: did you install a lightdm?09:26
dylan_i just told u09:26
dylan_it didint boot into grapical09:27
dylan_it booted into a stupid terminal09:27
k1l_dylan_: listen, the minimal install is a advanced install. so if you dont have a clue use the proper xubuntu iso and make the regular install. that is for beginners09:27
Cholrabliwafflejock: aplay myfile.mp3 = no sound09:27
wafflejockCholrabli, give alsamixer a shot09:27
wafflejockCholrabli, it should show your device outputs that the system sees, maybe that will shed some insight09:27
dylan_ugh i wanted to install xubuntu on mini iso09:27
Cholrabliwafflejock: already did, you can see a screenshot of alsamixer above09:28
wafflejockdidn't sorry can you link me again?09:28
Cholrabli(sorry my history is gone because I rebooted my pc, so I can re-post the link)09:28
wafflejockah k09:28
k1l_dylan_: xubuntu desktop without the - is plain wrong. so there is the issue. and maybe you need to install the lightdm anyway yourself on the minimal install. but as i said, that is a advanced intall. if you want a "one click and all is done" install use the regular xubuntu iso09:28
shiblydylan_: http://askubuntu.com/questions/98561/how-to-install-xubuntu-complete-version-from-the-terminal09:28
MonkeyDustCholrabli  i havent followed ... try this, do you hear anything?   play /usr/share/sounds/alsa/*09:28
naftilos76Is there a way to capture events of buttons being pressed on my bluetooth headset?09:29
CholrabliMonkeyDust: nothing :(09:29
wafflejockCholrabli, okay yeah just read back some of that didn't see the link but basically you don't see much in terms of devices in alsamixer is the gist?09:29
wafflejockCholrabli, you can hit F6 in there to choose a different audio card09:30
wafflejockCholrabli, does it show your audio device in there?09:30
ytixdecafI accidently deleted my seagate file on my external HDD. My Ubuntu isn't opening my external HDD now. Any solutions?09:30
Cholrabliwafflejock: http://i.imgur.com/BBQCs0W.png <- alsamixer screenshot09:31
Cholrabliwafflejock: F6 -> shows me HDA Intel PCH and HDA Nvidia09:31
Cholrablihda nvidia works but thats not what I want (since it sounds terrible to my monitors loudspeakers)09:32
wafflejockCholrabli, are you on 14.04?09:32
EriC^^ytixdecaf: try testdisk09:32
wafflejockCholrabli, er which version09:32
ytixdecafEric^^: testdisk?09:33
EriC^^ytixdecaf: yeah sudo apt-get install testdisk09:33
wafflejockCholrabli, are you dual booting?09:33
Cholrabliwafflejock: yep09:33
wafflejockCholrabli, well I've got just the bug report for you :) https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/135772309:34
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1357723 in linux (Ubuntu) "No sound after rebooting from Windows (ALC1150)" [Medium,Fix committed]09:34
ytixdecafEric^^: I installed it. No what?09:34
Cholrabliwafflejock: hmmm interesting.... but thats from 2014... still no fix?!09:35
EriC^^ytixdecaf: type sudo testdisk09:35
EriC^^then no log09:35
wafflejockCholrabli, it says fix committed I'm not sure how to tell when where it was pushed into a package though09:35
wafflejockCholrabli, also says though it's swapping the ports is that a possibility with your card?09:35
wafflejockCholrabli, just to verify it's the same problem09:36
ytixdecafNo log? New Log?09:36
Cholrabliwafflejock: yep, actually it worked a few days ago when I swapped the ports at the card, which ofc sucks because I have to swap it back on windows. however, since I resitalled pulsaudio & co (and pruged the config), nothing works at all (except the HDMI /nvidia sutff)09:36
Cholrabli"Kernel 3.18 has fixed this bug." <- so I have to wait for that kernel...09:37
wafflejockCholrabli, it looks like it's in vivid09:38
wafflejockCholrabli, I mean 15.04 but that's not LTS unfortunately09:38
Ben64can use the enablement stack09:38
Cholrabliwafflejock: likely stupid question: will kernel 13.18 ever come to 14 LTS?09:39
Ben64it already is09:39
wafflejockyeah listen to Ben64 here I'm not sure but he'll know09:40
CholrabliBen64: hmm do you have specific instructions on how I can get that stuff running here?09:41
Ben64probably install something like linux-generic-lts-vivid09:43

wafflejockCholrabli, check out aplay again before trying other things09:50
ytixdecafEric^^: Yes, I finished installing it.09:50
[twisti]is the phpmyadmin package for LTS 12.04 broken ? the install fails with "apache2: Syntax error on line 234 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Could not open configuration file /etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf: No such file or directory" which indeed points to /etc/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin.conf which doesnt exist09:51
Cholrabliwafflejock: aplay myfile.mp3 -> no sound09:51
wafflejock[twisti], dpkg -L phpmyadmin | grep /etc         will show you anything the package put in /etc it should be fine though09:53
wafflejock[twisti], you can sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin --reinstall, if you think something went awry09:53
robert_c Hi to all. I have Ubuntu 14.04 installed on my Dell Inspiron laptop for a year. These days, I have a problem.09:53

robert_c Sometimes (mostly when I try to move my laptop) wireless gets disconnected AND apart from that, my laptop freezes!09:54
robert_c And it does not get back to normal unless I restart it.09:54
robert_cDo you know what the problem might be and how to fix it?09:54
Cholrabliwafflejock: :( sucks donkey balls09:54
MonkeyDustCholrabli  no such language here09:55
CholrabliMonkeyDust: sorry09:55
=== fakir is now known as an0nmat1r
Cholrabliso frustrating :(09:56
[twisti]wafflejock: same error. the dpkg line shows a bunch of files that do not actually get put in /etc09:56
wafflejock[twisti], not sure what to tell ya http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/all/phpmyadmin/filelist think it should be pointing at that apache.conf not a phpmyadmin.conf file but you're saying you have no /etc/phpmyadmin after installing?10:01
[twisti]i do, but there is only config-db.php in there10:01
Cholrabliwafflejock: I'l try to get help in the ubuntu, if that doesn't work I'll take into consideration switching to an alternative linux distro. thanks for you help!10:02
[twisti]presumably the other files would have gotten installed after the error happens10:02
wafflejock[twisti], oh strange okay yeah I didn't completely follow that it was during installation you got that error not after installing and trying to run the server10:03
[twisti]and my bad, it does indeed point to apache2.conf10:03
wafflejocktypically you only see those errors from apache when starting up or using apachectl to test the config10:03
[twisti]phpmyadmin.conf -> ../../phpmyadmin/apache.conf10:03
[twisti]yeah, that apparently happens during the installation10:03
codeichello all10:03
wafflejock[twisti], still strange I dunno I have a walkthrough on setting up lamp on YouTube using 12.04 I didn't have a problem at the time... I know some things in apache 2.4 have changed in terms of directory structure but don't think it affected that10:04
dczhello guys, i want to parse hastebin.com and send data to it and save and get the url . how can i do this ?10:04
wafflejock[twisti], here's my walk through it's long but jump points in the description and I cover a lot of other stuff, can maybe compare what's going on but I just did a full lamp install https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQNbsCTFrAA10:05
[twisti]ill check it out, but presumably there isnt that much that one can do wrong when writing "sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin"10:05
[twisti]my guess is that the package is indeed screwed up and only installs over existing older versions of the package10:06
wafflejock[twisti], yeah at worst though you can grab the package from the downloads/packages site I linked there and just manually install it, if there's a .deb can just dpkg -i thedeb.deb, but might be problematic with regard to getting updates10:06
wafflejock[twisti], basically phpmyadmin is really just a bunch of php files and that config.inc.php file has the settings for connecting to the DB and the .conf file has some apache configuration for the path10:07
=== moz is now known as Guest24035

[twisti]i know, the only reason im going through apt is for the automatic updates10:08

=== ch3f is now known as panosk
wafflejock[twisti], I suppose you could try just putting that one configuration file in place and seeing if it gets past the error10:10

tzzun__any1 der10:17
lotuspsychjetzzun__: 1600 users are10:17
tzzun__i use ubuntu 14.04 LTS10:18
tzzun__is it possible to get unity 810:18
tzzun__for my ubuntu10:18
k1l_tzzun__: unity8 is still in development for the desktop.10:18
tzzun__so wen will it be released10:18
k1l_tzzun__: best is to test the "desktop next" iso10:19
k1l_tzzun__: "when its done" :)10:19
k1l_tzzun__: target was 16.04 iirc, for the desktop10:19
tzzun__so how is "desktop next" related to unity?10:19
k1l_tzzun__: its a seperate .iso with unity8 and MIR running. for developers to have a test and dev system.10:20
tzzun__what is dis MIR?10:20
k1l_tzzun__: so you want unity8 and dont know what MIR is? MIR is a new xserver that will be the base for unity810:20
wafflejock[twisti], yeah this is what's in the postinst http://paste.ubuntu.com/11985491/ that restarts the web server and might show that error if the configuration didn't get put in place, but I have no idea why the package wouldn't have already put the file in place by the time it runs the postinst10:21
tzzun__ok....can u tell me why der is a problem in fily copying in ubuntu.... imean sometimes it shows "0 seconds left" and it goes on for a while10:21

tzzun__ok..... i heard dat debian is more stable dan ubuntu.....is it true?10:22
k1l_tzzun__: no. ubuntu offers LTS which got the focus on stableness, too.10:23
OerHekswhere do you hear that, tzzun__ ? and why do you believe them?10:24
tzzun__k1l... is der a way to recover if ubuntu hangs10:24
k1l_tzzun__: that depends on the exact issue10:24
tzzun__i mean der is nothing like CTRL + ALT+ DELETE wich is der inj windows10:24
tzzun__sometimes wen i watch moviez in ubuntu it hangs10:25
k1l_tzzun__: ubuntu uses sysreq10:25
tzzun__den im forced to restart10:25
[twisti]wafflej0ck: creating empty files with the proper names make the install go through, but the /etc/phpmyadmin directory still doesnt contain the files listed in the package10:25
k1l_tzzun__: so look into the logs what was causing that hang. so you can remove the issue10:25
tzzun__wer can i find the logs?10:25
k1l_ /var/log10:25
tzzun__ok.....r u too using "irssi"10:26

motzhi, I can't get my usb internet key working. Can anybody help me?10:28
wafflejock[twisti], you can try something like this http://askubuntu.com/questions/30482/is-there-an-apt-command-to-download-a-deb-file-from-the-repositories-to-the-curr or just download the .deb from the packages.ubuntu.com site directly and open it with a zip program (file roller) and open the /etc/ folder in there and check it out, the files are in there from what I've seen not sure why apt-get or dpkg or whatever isn't installing them10:29
wafflejock on your system10:29
k1l_maybe the usb is that slow, that its causeing the system to use all ram.10:29
[twisti]wafflej0ck: its no good, something in that package is fucked up, during install i get "A new version of configuration file /etc/dbconfig-common/phpmyadmin.conf is available, but the version installed currently has been locally modified." even if i manually delete that file before installing, same for the things in /etc/phpmyadmin10:30
tzzun__nope....i have check it in system monitor....it does not show any change in MEMORY usage wen i copy files10:30
[twisti]i think im going to go with the traditional install10:30

EriC^^59 to 60%?11:30
ashiq_akWhen i use acpi -i command, it shows Battery 0: Unknown, 59%11:30
ashiq_akBattery 0: design capacity 176 mAh, last full capacity 168 mAh = 95%  EriC^^11:30
EriC^^did you make a typo?11:30
=== QuantumMechanics is now known as TheBigDeal
EriC^^what's the difference between 59 and 60?11:30
ashiq_akwhen i was on windows i used lenovo energy management tool, and set battery charge only to 60%, as it healthier while using laptop under ac power for long time. Now when i installed ubuntu its charging only to 59% not to 100% Eric^^11:32
ashiq_akNot typo, the truth:p11:33
ashiq_akDid u saw the result when i use acpi =i command EriC^^11:33
ashiq_akacpi -i*11:33
EriC^^ashiq_ak: you're not being very coherent11:34
EriC^^so it's charging to 95% you want it to charge to %100?11:35
EriC^^it sounded at first like you wanted it not to charge to 59% but 60%, you can understand why that sounded kind of silly11:35
OerHeksEriC^^, he needs that lenovo tool to reset the charging limit.11:36
ashiq_akSorry, I am not that good in English. I respect everyone11:36
ashiq_akyeah i need to charge it to 100%.11:36
OerHeksi answered he needs to go back to windows for that, but he has no windows anymore.11:36
EriC^^why doesn't he have windows anymore?11:37
* OerHeks found no unix tool or howto11:37
EriC^^he uninstalled it?11:37
ashiq_akonly freya now11:37
ashiq_akfresh install11:38
EriC^^ashiq_ak: http://askubuntu.com/questions/34452/how-can-i-limit-battery-charging-to-80-capacity11:38
EriC^^try that11:38
Mandeep_SinghEriC^^, I referred him to the same link :)11:39
ashiq_aktried that one yesterday, when doing the second command it shows, modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'tp_smapi': No such device11:39
FjorgynnWelcome to Ubuntu11:39
EriC^^ashiq_ak: did you install the package before it?11:39
EriC^^ashiq_ak: type dpkg -L tp-smapi-dkms | nc termbin.com 999911:40
ashiq_aktp-smapi-dkms ==>this package?11:40
ashiq_akthat was successful, the second command after that.11:40
MonkeyDustashiq_ak  the command suggested by EriC^^ returns a url ... paste the url here11:41
ashiq_aklet me see11:42
EriC^^ashiq_ak: do you have an ideapad or thinkpad?11:42
ValidusHey guys I was on here last night, but I'm still having issues logging into my machine. Last night I just installed an update, rebooted and when at the login screen it looked like I could login but then it wouldn't go to the desktop and just put me back at the login.11:42
ashiq_akideapad s30011:42
EriC^^ashiq_ak: oh, it only works for thinkpads11:42
ValidusLooking into it, it seemed to be a graphics issue so I updated to the Nvidia 331 drivers and that has only made things worse as now I can't even get to the GUI login screen and I'm presented with a terminal to login to11:43
ashiq_akhttp://termbin.com/nskf EriC^^ Mandeep_Singh11:43
ValidusReading /var/log/Xorg.0.log tells me that it couldn't open module vesa11:44
Validusmodule does not exist, 011:44
Validusno drivers avaliable.11:44
Validusno screens found11:44
EriC^^ashiq_ak: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Tpacpi-bat#Ubuntu_.2F_LinuxMint11:45
ValidusI would continue using google as my help, but that has only seemed to make things worse11:45
EriC^^there's a ppa you can use11:45
ValidusHas anyone got any idea what I can do?11:45
Validus(sorry for the essay) :)11:45
EriC^^ashiq_ak: can you access the bios?11:45
ashiq_akokay. is my tp_smapi installation complete11:46
EriC^^ashiq_ak: tp_smapi only works for thinkpads, and not all of them11:46
EriC^^ashiq_ak: there's a ppa on the second link above, which should work, preferably if you can access the bios you can change it there as well11:47
ashiq_akSaw this description on ppa page u gave, PPA description11:47
ashiq_akThinkPad battery charge threshold management scripts for newer models not supported by smapi.11:47
wafflejockValidus, can try sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-vesa11:47
wafflejockValidus, typically vesa is the fallback used if you have nomodeset in your boot params11:47
ValidusI'll try that, just had to get my network working again.11:48
ashiq_akEriC^^ Saw this description on ppa page u gave, PPA description "ThinkPad battery charge threshold management scripts for newer models not supported by smapi.11:49
Validuswafflejock: should I just reboot once installed?11:49
EriC^^ashiq_ak: yes, i think they mean it works for thinkpads/ideapads which don't support smapi11:49
EriC^^newer thinkpads or ideapad etc.11:49
wafflejockValidus, yeah can give it a shot not sure why it would have erased the vesa drivers but sounds like that's what was missing from the error11:49
Validusso I did, sudo service start lightdm11:49
ValidusAnd that has brought em to a login11:50
ashiq_akokay, how is that done PPA? idk how to do it'11:50
Validusbut I must have done something crazy last night as its giving me the debian login, rather than ubuntu, I also noticed my grub had been updated to debian11:50
ValidusI also still get the same login loop issue11:51
wafflejockValidus, you can have a terminal with dmesg running when you try to login11:51
wafflejockCtrl+Alt+F1 to get to a terminal11:52
EriC^^ashiq_ak: you didn't answer about the bios.. are you able to access it?11:52
wafflejockCtrl+Alt+F7 to get back11:52
EriC^^ok, you should be able to reset the power management there11:52
ashiq_akno.  option like that11:53
EriC^^battery saver/optimizer?11:53
EriC^^smart power management for the battery or something..?11:53
ashiq_aknop ):11:53
ashiq_aknop :(11:54
wafflejockValidus, it might give some insight into what's failing I've also heard of people needing to manually delete their ~/.Xauthority file not sure exactly why though11:54
Validusyeah I deleted that last night and it didn't do anything11:54
ValidusPeople also chowned their home directory but that didn't do anything11:54
ashiq_aki even tried resting CMOS yesterday..didnt seems to work11:54
wafflejockValidus, see anything with dmesg? or can tail -f /var/syslog11:54
wafflejocksorry /var/log/syslog11:55
ashiq_aki even tried resting CMOS yesterday..didnt seems to work EriC^^11:55
EriC^^ashiq_ak: ok, type sudo add-apt-repository ppa:morgwai/tpbat11:56

Validuswhich makes sense I suppose :P11:56
wafflejockValidus, https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/Bumblebee/issues/232 some bug not sure if it's right or not11:57
ashiq_akOkay. EriC^^11:57
wafflejockValidus, would do some googling based on what you see there11:57
ashiq_akDone!! EriC^^11:57
=== ob1mod_ is now known as ob1mod
ValidusYeah just started, I'll have a look at that conf, cheers :)11:57
wafflejockValidus, try to get the exact version number of everything in there ideally to be sure you're not looking at some other issue11:57
wafflejockValidus, yup gl11:57
EriC^^ashiq_ak: type sudo apt-get update11:57
ashiq_akdone already11:58
ashiq_akEriC^^ Done11:58
ValidusAt this point I'm just considering backing up my home directory and re-installing.11:58
MonkeyDustValidus  backup is always a good idea11:59
EriC^^ashiq_ak: type sudo apt-get install tpacpi-bat11:59
ValidusIts just slightly annoying that a normal update did this and I have only made things worse :)11:59
TandyUKhi, anyone able to help me with iscsi on ubuntu, i have created a lvm volgroup, and a volume, which is exported via iscsi. but i see the process[istd1] taking 100% cpu, and my esxi server can connect ot he servr, but not see any targets, doing a rescan takes about 5 mins. also the server is resistant to rebooting 'sudo shutdown -r now' three times now has failed to reboot the ubuntu server11:59
MonkeyDustValidus  you can also create a separate /home partition, so you can easily reinstall without touching your personal files11:59
ashiq_akDone EriC^^12:00
qdiihey guys. I am creating my first .deb, is there a way to sign it? or how does the OS ensures that the package comes from the right hands?12:00
ValidusI'm not sure if I did that when I installed, I know I spent some time deciding my partitioning scheme as I wasn't sure what flavour of Linux I wanted12:00
ValidusSo it may already be like that :)12:00
Mandeep_SinghEriC^^, will the same work for HP notebook?12:00
EriC^^ashiq_ak: type sudo tpacpi-bat -s SP 1 10012:00
ashiq_akReturns an error! "missing or invalid value for <percent>" EriC^^12:01
EriC^^Mandeep_Singh: i dont think so12:01
MonkeyDustValidus  what's the output of    lsblk | nc termbin.com 999912:01
Validusnc: getaddrinfo: Name or service not known12:02
Validuscan't type :)12:02
EriC^^ashiq_ak: try 99 instead of 10012:03
Validushmm, nope still getting that12:03
MonkeyDustValidus  take off those winter gloves12:03
ashiq_akNow fine. Done that. EriC^^12:03
EriC^^ashiq_ak: ok12:03
Validusgave me the same result MonkeyDust12:04
ashiq_akLOL MonkeyDust and Validus12:04
ashiq_akWhat next? EriC^^12:07
ValidusAh I forgot to reset my eth0 again...12:07
EriC^^ashiq_ak: is it charging more than 95%?12:07
ashiq_akstill at 59% EriC^^ not 95%12:07
EriC^^type upower --dump | nc termbin.com 999912:08
BBLLCCcan I purge pcman?pcman is a file manager, I got rid of it, in the repos it appears as not installed, but there is still an icon on the menu12:08

Novice01yHello. I don't have sound on Lubuntu from installation. Is there other way to solve this than installing pulseaudio>12:08
ValidusMonkeyDust: http://termbin.com/c0vo12:09
ValidusThat site is awesome btw.12:10
EriC^^ashiq_ak: try restarting, are you using uefi by the way?12:10
ashiq_akyes EriC^^12:10
EriC^^ok, try to restart12:11
EriC^^i was going to suggest reseting the bios, but it would probably delete the uefi entries too12:11
ashiq_akwhile plugged in or /out?12:11
ashiq_akAC power chord?12:12
EriC^^just restart12:12
wafflejockBBLLCC, try ls /usr/share/applications/pcmanfm.desktop12:13
wafflejockBBLLCC, if there's a file there then it didn't remove it's entry used in the menus otherwise perhaps the menu just hasn't refreshed yet12:13
BBLLCCshould I use pcman instead of thunar?12:13
wafflejockBBLLCC, whatever works for you, I use nemo most of the time personally12:14

wafflejockkondratov, np if it comes down to something you can't figure out in ubuntu itself or problems this is the place just fringe things people typically don't guide on in here just things the distro ought to do out of the box12:19
BBLLCCwafflej0ck, how do I update the main menu? there is no directory for pcman to be uninstalled12:19
BBLLCCyour command did nothing12:19
EriC^^ashiq_ak: try with sudo12:19
wafflejockBBLLCC, is this the package you had installed? http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/amd64/pcmanfm/filelist12:19

BBLLCCwafflej0ck, what I found on the repos12:20
wafflejockBBLLCC, typically Alt+F2 then R then enter will restart the interface but I use Gnome12:20
wafflejockBBLLCC, the .desktop files are used regardless of the GUI used for the menu basically but restarting them varies slightly I believe12:20
BBLLCCalt+f2 opens the application finder12:20
wafflejockBBLLCC, okay not that then... what're you running?12:21
ashiq-akEriC^^ what now?12:21
BBLLCCxubuntu 15.04 64 bits12:21
ashiq-aki was blocked lol did not see three copies of the same message12:21
wafflejockBBLLCC, yeah not sure on there but a couple people suggest alacarte I've found that useful as well12:22
pkg_addD-unit: nice gangsta name douchebag12:22
wafflejockBBLLCC, alacarte is just a GUI for managing which entries show up or deleting them12:22
wafflejockBBLLCC, still if there is no .desktop file from the package you installed then you shouldn't see it in the menu as soon as you reboot12:22
BBLLCCthats the name I forgot, I use alacarte, but the pcman icon is not listed there either. Oddly enough, in the main menu the icon DO appears12:23

BBLLCCwafflej0ck, the first one12:26
wafflejockBBLLCC, okay search for .desktop here http://packages.ubuntu.com/vivid/amd64/pcmanfm/filelist12:26
wafflejockBBLLCC, you should see the files it puts in place12:26
wafflejockBBLLCC, those point to an icon and an executable file to run (usually in /usr/bin)12:26
wafflejockthen all the other menu stuff uses that to know what to show12:27
wafflejockif your menu is still showing some old stuff and the .desktop file isn't there you just need to restart the menu app itself somehow, with Gnome it's just Alt+f2 then R in the box and enter, but not sure on XFCE12:27
EriC^^ashiq-ak: try sudo tpacpi-bat -g SP 012:27
EriC^^ashiq-ak: do you have a live usb by any chance?12:28
ashiq-akYes. I have the live usb. And that cmd returned this : Cannot specify 'either/both' for reading SP12:28
EriC^^ashiq-ak: please use paste.ubuntu.com to paste12:28
ashiq-akOkay.! EriC^^12:29
MonkeyDustValidus  i was away, so you do have a separate /home partition, ok12:29
wafflejockBBLLCC, you can also just try browsing around in /usr/share/applications since they're all somewhere in there but based on the file listing it's usually easier to find things12:30
wafflejockBBLLCC, or know something is already deleted that was in the package12:30
ValidusMonkeyDust: I might just re-install, I'm having no luck with my original issue and I think I had made things worse with this debian grub and login screen :S12:31
wafflejockValidus, yeah would typically recommend just using the additional drivers dialog for installing drivers12:32
ashiq-akEriC^^:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/11986100/12:32
ValidusInstalling drivers didn't cause the issue originally, I just did a standard update and couldn't login.12:32
wafflejockValidus, in some cases you have to go with the proprietary from nvidia but people tend to run into problems with that more often than not and then have no way to upgrade or easily remove it seems12:32
Validusyeah, I'm trying to remove the damn thing now and its not the easiest12:33
Validusapt-get doesn't even think there is an nvidia driver installed.12:33
EriC^^ashiq-ak: ok, do you have a live usb?12:33
ashiq-akNo. can make one if we need one EriC^^12:34
EriC^^ashiq-ak: ok, how did you install ubuntu, just as usual, nothing more?12:35
ashiq-akjust 10 min of time needed. EriC^^12:35
ValidusInteresting, I seem to have gotten rid of the nvidia drivers12:35
ashiq-akusual EriC^^12:35
Validusnow I'm just back to a login loop12:35
Validusanyone got any ideas for my original issue? Haha12:35
EriC^^ashiq-ak: ok, make a live usb, see if it works12:36
ashiq-akBy deleting the windows partition and using the entire disk EriC^^12:36
ashiq-akOkay. Will be back! EriC^^12:37
EriC^^ashiq-ak: ok, so you did not use any special efi or git drivers etc. to make it boot?12:37
ashiq-akno. Just using F12 key EriC^^12:37
ashiq-ak10 min i will be back EriC^^12:38
ashiq-akthank you so much for helping me EriC^^12:39
ValidusAlso does anyone have any idea how to fix this debian grub and login screen :\12:39
wafflejockValidus, not sure what you mean by that what makes you think it's debian?12:39
lshknHi, i have a acer laptop and i want to update bios. But, bios load only availibe for Windows, I mean *.exe. Is there any variants for bios update without Windows?12:39
Validusits got a debian logo on it :P12:39
Validusprobably just a theme or something, no idea how I got it12:39
MonkeyDustValidus  how did it get there in the first place12:39
Validusdunno, I did so much last night to try and get my system working again, it could be anything12:40
ValidusI've run a lot of apt-get upgrades and stuff, not sure if that would pull something like that down?12:41
brainwashValidus: did you install the package "desktop-base"?12:41
wafflejocklshkn, this page may be helpful https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIOSUpdate12:41
Validusdpkg says its installed12:42
ValidusI assume I must had done12:42
brainwashI guess so12:42
Validuscan I just do a sudo apt-get remove on that?12:42
lshknwafflejock, thanks!12:42
brainwashValidus: try it and see if it wants to remove additional packages12:43
ValidusJust ran it, seems to have fixed me grub but can't get to the login screen now. This is probably the reason I installed it.12:44
MonkeyDustValidus  is this useful   sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth12:44
ValidusMonkeyDust: its come up with a 2 choices12:45
Validusauto mode and manual mode, I assume I want auto12:46
MonkeyDustValidus  proceed12:46
Validusok, I'll give it a reboot12:46
Validushmm so I still have the debian style login screen but grub is fixed12:47
cylonmathGuys I have Ubuntu14.04LTs, GT640M + Intel GPU card laptop. I wanted to install cuda and NVIDIA drivers (331binary). I guess I succesfully did, since I can run CUDa samples and device query returns my gpu. Also lsmod shows nvidia module. However I can't start lightdm anymore, it says "job failed", I can't boot GUI, is there any easy fix for this?12:47
Validuscylonmath: welcome to the club of failing Nvidia drivers.12:47
MonkeyDustValidus  try this   sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm12:48
ValidusMonkeyDust: didn't do anything after restarting lightdm12:48
Validusit has seemed to remove the background wallpaper though :s12:48
Validuscylonmath: do you have to have the Nvidia drivers rather than the default?12:50
=== Senj__ is now known as Senji
rorycylonmath: There are some log files in /var/log/lightdm I believe, that might give you a more descriptive message12:51
wafflejockValidus, for the CUDA support you need the proprietary version12:51
BotchlaBValidus, I can't speak for Ubuntu, but on Debian I found it necessary -- the noveau drivers made the GPU idle at 92C. The proprietary drivers fixed that. Could be a similar issue here.12:51
BotchlaBWait, actually, on Lubuntu the same happened.12:52
BotchlaBSo, yeah.12:52
Validusfair enough, installing them here has caused a world of trouble.12:52
BotchlaBYour mileage varies, I guess.12:52
Gl33Dhey can anyone here give me some help?12:52
Validusyeah standard nix12:52
MonkeyDustGl33D  star with a question12:52
Gl33Dim running ubuntu and have installed the windows version of steam via play on linux and pointed steam to my steam library on my external hard drive but whenever i start any game it comes up with "unknown error"12:53
ValidusGl33D: probably best to never play a game from an external hard drive anyway, the data rate over USB isn't quick enough.12:54
BotchlaBValidus, not even USB 3?12:54
Gl33Dthe only game that gets passed that is MW2 but that just gives me a video card error12:54
plytrothe windows version of steam, not the linux version of steam?12:54
Gl33Dit works fine in windows12:54
wafflejockGl33D, my guess would be playonlinux doesn't have all the windows dependencies needed to run the games12:54
Gl33Dyeah there is no linux version of the games i want to play12:55
roryUSB3 is plenty fast for things like that; I run entire virtual machines off a USB3 drive.12:55
plytrohave you tried wine?12:55
wafflejockGl33D, typically I believe Wine is the answer if there is oen12:55
Gl33Dwine is play on linux12:55
wafflejockwell I think the other way around maybe12:55
roryplayonlinux is wine with some OOTB configs for each game12:55
plytroPlayOnLinux is a graphical front-end for the Wine software compatibility layer which allows Linux users to install Windows-based video games12:55
OerHeksi think your issue is the partition on your extended hdd, NTFS?12:55
plytroThe More You Know! RAINBOW12:55
roryjust installing Steam through it doesn't guarentee that every individual game in your Steam library will play12:55
rorySome games have no compatibility at all12:56
Gl33Doh the only games i really want working is ARMA 3 GTA v and Call of DUty Advanced Warfare12:56
wafflejockGl33D, good to search here https://appdb.winehq.org/12:56
roryyou might be out of luck with how recent they are12:56
plytrotoo slow12:56
Gl33Ddammit so should i just install windows on another drive in my pc>12:56
roryGl33D: I found this that might be useful https://gist.github.com/BeauBouchard/c496fcd231c3d06fced512:57
BotchlaBGl33D: I'd run a VM before doing that, imho12:57
roryGl33D: The only way to get 100% compatibility with Windows programs is to use Windows12:57
wafflejockGl33D, I have my desktop dual boot still so I can play some games on Win without hassle, some things have been coming over to linux I like too though like KSP and borderlands12:57
BotchlaBjfg, successful.12:57
ValidusYeah I just dual boot for games12:57
Gl33Dcan a VM run games i know thats a thing on mac (i think)12:57
plytroit can12:58
plytrobut probably not well12:58
BotchlaBGl33D: I don't see why not; just make sure it picks up the necessary hardware (GPU, enough memory assigned, cores, etc.)12:58
wafflejockdon't think you get graphics card passthrough at least not with VBox12:58
BotchlaBwafflejock: Oh?12:58
ValidusThe virtual graphics drivers might not be good enough12:58
wafflejockyou get a virtual driver12:58
plytroeven with xen?12:58
wafflejockI think maybe VMWare or some other ones might do it12:58
wafflejocknot sure12:58
Gl33Di know people used to use vm's on mac to get windows games working? i know my friend used to12:59
plytromint but the same12:59
plytroGl33D: it all depends on the game12:59
wafflejockI know the guys on the jupiter broadcasting show were complaining about it for video editing12:59
plytroand the hardware resources it needs12:59
Gl33Disnt mint based on ubuntu? so surely it sould work12:59
plytrodon't assume that12:59
Gl33Dhow come?13:00
MonkeyDustGl33D  mint is too different from ubuntu13:00
plytroubuntu is based on debian and the guides don't always match one for one13:00
plytroits worth a shot13:00
plytroxen is probably you best virtual machine env to try it in13:00
vervoidHi nixers! I'm moving to a bigger HDD and I need some help. I want to multi-boot different OSs. I want to clean install Win7, somehow migrate my current Ubuntu setup, and install Arch. What do?13:00
Gl33Dyeah ill try now13:00
MonkeyDust!clone | vervoid for ubuntu13:01
ubottuvervoid for ubuntu: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can use the !software package "apt-clone" - See also !automate13:01
plytrovervoid: have you looked at docker for arch/ubuntu at the same time?13:01
plytroremove one dualboot?13:01
plytroI don't know what you're trying to do with arch so it may not be good for you13:01
wafflejockplytro, if you do that are they sharing a kernel?13:02
wafflejockplytro, if so is that a problem?13:02
plytronot really13:02
plytroyes they share a kernel13:02
plytroI run nearly everything in docker instances on my home server now13:02
vervoidThanks everyone! Should I install windows first?13:02
ubottuTo replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can use the !software package "apt-clone" - See also !automate13:02
wafflejockplytro,  but ubuntu will be fine with a newer kernel if arch is the base or vice versa?13:03
plytrothe host holds the kernel version13:03
wafflejockright so I'm saying though does it matter which one is host?13:03
plytroI am running ubuntu 15.04 docker instances on a 14.04 host without problem13:03
wafflejockI've only run ubuntu with docker instance of ubuntu too13:03
plytroand a debian jessie instance with a 14.04 host13:03
TandyUKdoes iscsi target work in ubuntu 15.04?13:04
MonkeyDustvervoid  yes, 'first win, then lin' ... windows would ruin the grub menu13:04
vervoidAnd grub2 is okay for arch+windows+ubuntu?13:05
plytrojessie runs 3.18, 14.04 runs 3.13, unsure what 15.04 runs out of the box13:05
Gl33Dbollacks my intel CPU dosent support VT-D wich is required for direct I/O virtualisation (assentially getting my graphics card running fully in a VM) so im screwed i will have to install windows on a seperate drive13:05
TandyUKit 'works' on my 14.04 box until something connects to it, then my entire system semi-hangs until i hard reset it, by semi-hangs i mean guis etc is responsive, but no external connections are possible, and from an ssh/console session "shutdown -h now" fails to shut the system down13:05
plytroGl33D: what cpu do you have?13:06
TandyUKwith windows / debian / centos o nthe same hardware, i dont have the same problem13:06
Gl33DIntel Core i3-415013:06
MonkeyDustGl33D  drop the profanities, it's not the first time you're using them13:06
Gl33DThats just what it says on the box xD13:06
Gl33Di read that wrong13:07
vervoidAnd with "apt-clone" do I need to use a same sized partition?13:07
TandyUKGl33D: cat /proc/cpuinfo13:07
Gl33Di never said any "profranities"13:07

TechMongerping seems to work fine13:12
vervoidAre you running windows right now?13:13
TechMongeri just had to restart tho13:13
TechMongerbc every thing got slow then froze13:13
wafflejockGl33D, the processor will be able to be used directly but that doesn't include the gpu there's some discussion about it here http://askubuntu.com/questions/202926/how-to-use-nvidia-geforce-m310-on-ubuntu-12-10-running-as-guest-in-virtualbox13:13

TechMongerit happens randomly... at least to me. thats why i would like to find the trigger... if there is one13:14
vervoiduse this: lspci | grep -i net13:14
vervoidin terminal13:14
plytroTechMonger: you need a ping to run all the time13:14
plytrowhen things get slow see if ping is ok13:14
plytrowe have a problem at work13:14
plytrorandom slowness13:14
Gl33Dim using an r9 270x i think the r9 2xx series is just a rebranded 7xxx series (from memory of when i tried to hackintosh this machine)13:15
plytroit occurs for about 10 minutes once or twice a day13:15
TechMongerok... ill try all of this13:15
plytroI have a terminal open continously pinging the dns server in the office13:15
plytrowhen things get slow my response times go up to 5000ms+13:15
plytrothen 10 minutes later ping looks fine again13:15
plytrothis is windows and linux both though13:15
wafflejockGl33D, yeah the passthrough is described here but requires some particular hardware apparently http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch09.html#pcipassthrough13:16
plytrothey're trying to troubleshoot at the AP level13:16
wafflejockoh sorry13:16

wafflejockthat's just a fancy name for the VT-d13:16
wafflejockor vmx you verified is available13:16
vervoidl found these13:17
Gl33Dmy card is compatible with pci pasthrough (i think) because the 7870 is compatible and the r9  270x is a rebranded 787013:18
ashiq-akOMG how unfortunate i am. My Desktop just broke while copying to my usb :( strange. Is there anything that i can download to make live usb (small size) EriC^^13:18
TechMonger<opens browser after restart> <all previous tabs come flying back>13:18
MonkeyDustashiq-ak  puppy is small13:18
EriC^^ashiq-ak: what do you mean by broke?13:19
wafflejockGl33D, yeah I take back what I said there, apparently from this documentation you just need the VT-d support and a new enough kernel with the right flags set, the kernel should be new enough just not sure if the flags are set for ubuntu's build if so looks like you can just use that VBoxManage command to attach a device13:19
ashiq-akEriC^^ its not turning on!13:19
EriC^^ashiq-ak: try to remove the line to the power supply and turn the power supply's button on off13:20
Gl33Dmy cpu dosent have VT-d support but does support VMX13:20
Gl33Dbrb guys13:20
TechMongeri have no idea what this iptraf-ng is doing13:21
fwaokdaanyone know what I could try to troubleshoot why my bridged network connection drops out after ~5-60 seconds? It works when I first establish the connection but then stops.  Also it Ubuntu as a guest os in VMWare Workstation 11.  I can still access my host computer, but not the internet after the initial connection drops out13:21
ashiq-akwill fix that later. thanks for the advice though :) EriC^^13:21
ashiq-akLet me make a live usb first! EriC^^13:21
EriC^^ok, there are iso's at releases.ubuntu.com13:22
cylonmath rory validus: yes... I gotta use them for my research. And I tried dpkg-reconfigure, didnt help. lightdm.log says "lightdm process 2084 exited with return value 127" and then display server stoped.13:22
cylonmathrory validus, not proud to be part of nvidia failers club :}13:22
wafflejockcylonmath, yeah I got the OpenCL stuff working to run Agisoft but it took a few trial runs and failures so can't really clearly guide ya13:23
Gl33Dso is it possible to get my Graphics card working in a VM?13:24
Gl33Deven if my cpu dosent support vt-d13:24
wafflejockit would appear to be no13:25
Gl33Dso is a windows partition my only hope13:26
wafflejockhttp://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch09.html#pcipassthrough <-- this has VT-d as a requirement so if we're missing that piece it probably isn't going to work, so if you can't find the games in WineHQ and get their dependencies running then for running games compiled for Windows that's going to be the best option probably13:27
Gl33Dah ok :( looks like its off to install windows for me thanks for the help guys!13:28

daharonAnyone have an idea on how to get a list of the security updates for a package?13:33
Gl33Dhmm? what is it detecting when it asks you where to install ubuntu13:33
jbv"This computer currently has no detected operating systems. What would you like?" --erase disk and install ubuntu. Doesnt detect anything13:33
ashiq-akCheck ur Private message. EriC^^13:33

jbvstandard install normally13:34
Gl33Dweird im stumped tbh maybe someone else here can help you13:34
jbvHmm alright thanks anyways13:35
plytrodaharon: apt-cache policy ?13:39
daharonplytro: I'm already upgrading packages with security updates automatically.  I'm just trying to find the USN/CVE that explains the security vulnerabilities that were known in all the kernels versions I am currently running.  So I have a list of package-version, and I want to correlate it with vulnerabilities.13:41

Validushas anyone got any suggestions as to why I'm not able to get past my login screen? It looks like it goes to login but then takes me back to the login screen13:55
ValidusI've checked .Xauthority is owned by me, reinstalled lightdm and checked /tmp is rwx for everyone13:56
Validusthese seem to be the standard issues13:56
jzp113hi guy14:02
roryjbv: I had this before. In Windows 7, do a boot-time chkdsk on all your volumes, and then once that completes, reboot once again14:05
roryjbv: you have to reboot again into Windows, before you can do the Ubuntu install. At least that's what I found.14:05
AnthaasHi guys, I want to ssh into my computer remotely, and run a script which takes a long time to complete14:06
roryjbv: There was a sensible reason why this works, but I can't remember what it was; it was a while ago.14:06
AnthaasI want this script to run, and persist, beyond the length of the ssh connection14:06
AnthaasIs this possible?14:06
roryAnthaas: Look into "screen" or "tmux"14:06
EriC^^Anthaas: yes, use screen14:06
roryAnthaas: They are terminal multiplexers14:06
roryAnthaas: run "screen", then run your script14:06
AnthaasAhhh thanks14:06
roryAnthaas: Then next time you connect you can do "screen -dr" and it will reconnect you to the screen session14:06
AnthaasIs it possible to allow the SSH connection to use all the resources available to the machine?14:07
plytroI recommend tmux14:07
plytrothe config file is more sane14:07
roryAnthaas: What do you mean?14:07
Anthaasi.e. is there some limit as to the resources available through an SSH connection?14:07
AnthaasAhhh good :D14:07
AnthaasIll look into screen and tmux now14:07
plytroI converted from screen to tmux about 2 years ago14:07
jzp113hi someone know how to set Shadowsocks?14:07
roryI converted from screen to tmux as well14:07
EriC^^side note can you lock in tmux?14:07
rorybut screen comes with most distros. tmux doesn't14:08
plytrotmux has been in debian based distros for at least 5 years14:08
jzp113when I  run the SS ,it's show me that socket.error: [Errno 99] Cannot assign requested address14:08
plytroEriC^^: lock how?14:09
rorylike Ctrl-A x on screen14:09
AnthaasSo, just to confirm, I install screen on my local machine, connect to my remote machine, run my script, and I can shut my local machine down, and the task continues to complete on the remote machine?14:10
EriC^^Anthaas: screen has to be installed on the remote machine14:10
EriC^^after you start screen, run the command, then press ctrl+a then press d to detach14:10
roryAnthaas: screen and ssh are separate beasts here14:10
EriC^^screen -ls lists the sessions, screen -r to resume14:11
Validusearlier someone told me to remove ubuntu-desktop, what's the reason for that?14:11
roryValidus: What was the context, why did you need to remove that?14:11
roryValidus: ubuntu-desktop is a metapackage, that is, it contains no binaries of its own, but it depends on a number of other packages (in this case, all the packages that come installed)14:12
roryValidus: removing it won't remove those dependencies though14:12
AnthaasIs there any performance overhead on the script with using screen?14:12
ValidusSo I have two issues, one is my login screen looks like a debian login, and two I am in a login loop I.E i'm loging in and just getting put back at the login screen14:12
roryAnthaas: No14:12
AnthaasIt is performance sensitive14:12
AnthaasAhhh thanks14:12
ValidusI think they were trying to fix the first issue14:12
Validuswhich they go rid of the debian grub theme14:12
rorythey might have got you to RE install it14:13
roryIMO you should install it again14:13
Validusso is it strange for apt-get update to be going to debian servers?14:14
bazhangValidus, do you have debian repos on that14:14
plytroAnthaas: http://www.pixelbeat.org/lkdb/screen.html14:14
ValidusI may have added them in my battle last night, but before then I would have just had the default.14:15
bazhangValidus, never do that14:15
plytroEriC^^: tmux does have locking in its man page http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/man.cgi/OpenBSD-current/man1/tmux.1?query=tmux&sec=114:15
ValidusI'm just wondering if that is the reason for my login screen looking like debian as a apt-get upgrade may install them.14:15
cfhowlettValidus, let's see: more /etc/apt/sources.list | pastebinit14:15
AnthaasRight, thats my script running - thanks guys14:15
Validushow do I see if my repo list is different?14:15
AnthaasNeeded to run my benchmark on a remote machine, but am at a conference currently.14:15
AnthaasLife savers!14:16
bazhangcat /etc/apt/sources.list and see Validus14:16
ValidusThat would do it I suppose14:16
Validusshould I just make that empty?14:16
plytroValidus: I run etckeeper to be able to find out if things change14:17
bazhangValidus, why would you ever add debian repos14:17
OerHekstime for reinstall :-)14:17
Validustbh, I was trying to fix this last night after a few beers so probably just a noob move14:17

k1l_<PanV> 2 reasons: GRUB broke my windows OR Trojans   << why should grub brake it?14:33
PanVkIl_ since this happened around the time I installed Ubuntu14:33
k1l_PanV: grub doesnt change windows. (or is it a wubi install?)14:34
PanV(Not a Wubi Install, I was aware of the problems)14:34

k1l_tomhank: no14:50
MonkeyDustAlexPortable  vacuum cleaner is unrivalled when it comes to keyboard cleaning14:50
AlexPortablecfhowlett: I just found this. seems to be this issue i think14:50
k1l_tomhank: dont just use sudo just because you dont know what the issue is. that is going to make more trouble14:51
AlexPortableMonkeyDust: not when the hardware is just unboxed14:51
EriC^^ashiq-ak: oh ok, you're using legacy not uefi14:51
cfhowlettAlexPortable, try the fix and report back.  I'm curious.14:51
tomhanknice i got it to delelete thanks guys14:51
AlexPortableMonkeyDust: and the keyboard gets dirty after booting to ubuntu, and then a reboot to windows and then it's fine14:51
k1l_tomhank: do you use tab-completion?14:51
tomhankhow about for a mp3 file that uses spaces fill the spaces with _?14:51
ashiq-akOh I see EriC^^14:51
plytrouse tab14:51
OerHeksValidus, rary asked you if you installed desktop-core, and with the 1st part of removal you could see what it deletes also .. that is the point where you didn't answer14:51
ashiq-akSome people are saying I am not supported here ? EriC^^14:52
AlexPortablecfhowlett: only thing i wonder is where is the file sudo nano 85-keyboard-configuration.rules14:52
plytrootherwise it is rm artist\ name\ -\ song\ name\ is\ really\ long.mp314:52
cfhowlettAlexPortable, should be in your /home I would think14:52
plytroashiq-ak: the people here only support vanilla ubuntu14:52
AlexPortableits not14:52
plytroxubuntu and other flavors aren't supported14:53
ValidusOerHeks: Nah he just told me to re-install it as I had removed it14:53
ashiq-akme too supports vanilla ubuntu ;)14:53
cfhowlett!flavors | ashiq-ak, if your're using one of these, you're supported.  if not, sorry.14:53
ubottuashiq-ak, if your're using one of these, you're supported.  if not, sorry.: !Ubuntu-GNOME, !Kubuntu, !Xubuntu and !Lubuntu are simply flavors of Ubuntu that come with GNOME, KDE, Xfce, and LXDE (respectively) installed as default, instead of Unity. Other specialized flavors of Ubuntu include !Edubuntu, Ubuntu !Studio, and !Mythbuntu.14:53
k1l_plytro: that is false. flavors are supported in here14:53
plytroit makes the support matrix too big14:53
plytrosome people are cool and try to help14:53
plytroothers just say "sorry not supported here"14:53
Validusmy search of the chat only seems to show you mentioning desktop-core14:53
tomhankwell it has spaces how do i put a space in terminal when deleting a file14:53
EriC^^ashiq-ak: which ideapad do you have?14:53
EriC^^maybe you can hard reset it somehow14:54
ashiq-akLOL plytro14:54

ValidusOerHeks: I don't have desktop-core installed btw14:54

AlexPortablecfhowlett: somehow it seems to freeze keyboard input all together when I press the fn keys14:55
plytroescape with \14:55
tomhanki see so every space \ thank you14:55
cfhowlettplytro, non-official ubuntu flavors are not supported here.  if YOU choose to provide support anyway, please do so in a /msg box outside of main channel.  thank you.14:55
Validusshould I install desktop-core?14:55
plytrotomhank: tab completion to see how things works on the cli is helpful14:56
cfhowlettAlexPortable, might be reported in your logs somewhere.  try running dmesg and read the output14:56
plytroyou can see what the shell does14:56
AlexPortablecfhowlett: i have to reboot every time14:56
AlexPortabledont the logs get wiped then?14:56
AlexPortableevery time i fn+volumekey, i cant open menus or type anything14:56
EriC^^ashiq-ak: you already tried to remove the battery and hold the power button for 10 secs right?14:56
tomhankthanks everyone got my computer to finally boot up the data was too full to boot as always thanks everyone14:56
cfhowlettAlexPortable, on liveboot?  yes.  on normal install?  nope14:56
AlexPortablenormla install14:56
OerHeksValidus, good luck with that, you messed up your system, added debian stuff, i suggest do a fresh install, as any step can give you issues now14:56
Gl33Dahh! ive installed windows 10 on a second drive and now i cant boot into linux! what do i do!14:57
cfhowlettValidus, clean install +114:57
plytroGl33D: boot from a live image and reinstall grub14:57
ValidusAlright, probably easier in the long run anyway14:57
ashiq-aki did like remove battery, unplugged power chord, and holding power button for 40 sec. for all lenovo's to reset CMOS this is the way "says some site EriC^^"14:58
Validusshould I stick with 14.04 or go to 15?14:58
AlexPortablecfhowlett: can't find aynthing in dmesg about it, because its flooded with other stuff14:58
Gl33D14.04 works better with graphics drivers14:59
EriC^^ashiq-ak: try to remove the power plug and type upower --dump | nc termbin.com 999914:59
EriC^^ill brb 1 sec14:59
AayushValidus: With 14.0414:59
Validusok thanks14:59
Gl33Dwell whenever i installed them on 15.04 mt install crashed but didnt on 14.04 LTS14:59
cfhowlettAlexPortable, should be one of the more recent entries14:59
ashiq-akbrb 1 sec means? is that meant for me? EriC^^15:00
AlexPortablecfhowlett: wlan links becomes ready15:00
EriC^^yes im back :D15:00
EriC^^ashiq-ak: usually how long does the battery last?15:00
AlexPortablecfhowlett: modifier keys keep working, but the rest of the keyboard doesn't15:01
AlexPortableso I need to get this to work and my subwoofer15:01
cfhowlettAlexPortable, this is as laptop/desktop?15:01
EriC^^it could be that the battery is used to charging til 59% and its showing that as maximum cause it says 3hours til discharge15:01
ashiq-akshow 59% percent and time remaining as 1.45 and all of a sudden like after 10 -15 mins to 6 %. EriC^^15:01
AlexPortablegot the touchpad to work though15:01
EriC^^ashiq-ak: i read on a site that that happens, and leaving the battery fully drain or something helps15:01
EriC^^ashiq-ak: hmm, type upower --dump | nc termbin.com 9999 again15:02
ashiq-aksaw something similar EriC^^15:02
ashiq-akwithout plugging power source? EriC^^15:02
AlexPortablecfhowlett: laptop15:02
EriC^^yes ashiq-ak15:02
EriC^^keep it unplugged for a bit15:02
cfhowlettAlexPortable, just a thought: try an external keyboard15:03
artoisthat's a pretty cute pastebin site—is netcat standard on Ubuntu?15:03
EriC^^then type upower15:03
AlexPortablecfhowlett: and see if it works there15:03
EriC^^artois: yeah15:03
artoisand wget, right? But not curl?15:03
EriC^^both wget and curl15:03
AlexPortablecfhowlett: works fine there15:04
artoisoh really, real nice15:04
EriC^^i think debian doesn't have curl by default15:04
cfhowlettAlexPortable, "there" = external keyboard?15:04
AlexPortablecfhowlett: yes15:04
artoisa fair amount don't, even though it's wonderfulness15:04
no-name_Lets make Ubuntu AI15:04
EriC^^arch has curl by default but no wget15:04
artoisit'd be nice if we could get all distros to have a preinstalled 'pastebin' wrapper with certain standardized behavior, regardless of backend15:04
cfhowlettAlexPortable, well, that suggest your keyboard isn't quite configured properly.15:04
AlexPortablecfhowlett: how can i fix it?15:04
MonkeyDustdebian also doenst have sudo by default15:04
cfhowlett!keyboard | AlexPortable15:04
ubottuAlexPortable: To switch your keyboard layout on GNOME: System -> Preferences -> Keyboard | KDE: System Settings -> Regional & Language -> Keyboard Layout | XFCE: Settings -> Settings Manager -> Keyboard, Layout15:04

artoisMonkeyDust: not really sure anyone _should_ have sudo by default, but yeah, darned discrepancies15:05
AlexPortableit says something about repeat keys cn28h15:05
AlexPortablecfhowlett: *15:05
cfhowlettAlexPortable, do a search for ubuntu + multimedia + function keys15:05
ashiq-akHope this helpshttp://paste.ubuntu.com/11986973/15:05
EriC^^ashiq-ak: ok, i guess the 59% is correct, it's supposed to last for like 3 hours or so right?15:05
ashiq-akHope this helpshttp://paste.ubuntu.com/11986973/  EriC^^15:05
cfhowlettAlexPortable, I've no idea about that error15:05
AlexPortablecfhowlett: its not an error thats what comes up15:05
MonkeyDustAlexPortable  is this useful    sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration15:06
ashiq-akyeah. manufactures say it lasts for more than 4 hours. EriC^^15:06
AlexPortableMonkeyDust: what should i set it to? its not on 105-keys (international) PC15:07

AlexPortableMonkeyDust: how can i find out whatever suits my keyboard?15:08
AlexPortableMonkeyDust: cfhowlett reconfigured the keyboard, keys still dont work properly15:10
AlexPortableshould i reboot for the changes to apply?15:10
cfhowlettAlexPortable, http://askubuntu.com/questions/159857/function-key-on-my-acer-laptop-is-always-pressed15:11
AlexPortablecfhowlett: thats not the issue15:11
AlexPortablecfhowlett: that's when you press f11 and it does volume down15:11
AlexPortableinstead of fn+f11 for volume down15:11
AlexPortablethis is I press fn+f11 (volume down) once, and it keeps holding it15:12

AlexPortablewhat are dead keys?15:19
ashiq-akIs this because of that wrong data? EriC^^15:19
artoisAlexPortable: when you tap a modifier and then another key to get a different char than the default15:20
artoisAlexPortable: used more often outside of the anglosphere15:20
AlexPortableso i should select dead keys?15:20
AlexPortablelike alt gr + 5 = €15:20
artoisAlexPortable: for what, us int?15:20
AlexPortablei can select us int or us int with dead keys via altgr15:20

I've tried to do it like this: `diff --recursive --brief --exclude='var/cache' / /mnt/backup-of-server`. However, diff seems to kind of ignore my exclude-statements, and still compares the contents of some of the directories (but it seems not all of them). What is happening here?16:03

CompuChipHi, I installed GRUB for my Win8/Ubuntu dual boot system to the MBR, but now Windows cannot do an upgrade that is needed before it offers Windows 10. Can I move GRUB to the Linux partition, use the Windows bootloader to select an OS, and can I then upgrade Windows while keeping my Ubuntu system working? Any positive experiences? :)16:37
EriC^^ashiq-ak_: try powertop16:37
ashiq-ak_powertop ? whats that? EriC^^16:38
EriC^^ashiq-ak_: a program16:38
EriC^^CompuChip: that's pretty odd16:38
CompuChipEriC^^: Which part of it? :)16:39
EriC^^CompuChip: you can't move grub to the linux partition, it's in the mbr16:39
EriC^^the part where windows refuses to upgrade cause grub is in the mbr16:39
EriC^^CompuChip: what did windows complain about exactly?16:39
CompuChipEriC^^: It is an EFI partition, so I guess Windows does not like that it doesn't own the MBR anymore or something. It keeps rolling back one of the upgrades.16:39
EriC^^if it's an efi partition then the mbr is pretty irrelevant16:40
EriC^^you should just have an ubuntu dir inside the efi partition, and your bios is set to boot ubuntu's efi file16:40
genii_diego_: I might try adding the xorg-edgers PPA and updating the video drivers to what they have available16:41
CompuChipEriC^^: Sorry before I got this laptop I had never heard of EFI before. I just installed GRUB to /dev/sda as that seemed to make sense. I don't really understand EFI tbh. But I read that using the windows bootloader to select an OS gives Windows less issues.16:41
EriC^^CompuChip: i think it's pretty much the same thing, you chainload the windows .efi file from grub16:42
brainwashgenii: you would need to update the kernel and see if the drm error still occurs16:42
ashiq-ak_EriC^^, How to install and use it? Also now take look at these. http://termbin.com/juxp  -time to full? why so? its just 26% now. also when i convert Wh rating to mAh, it shows same output as acpi.16:42
CompuChipEriC^^: I was thinking of just grub-install-ing to /dev/sdaX and then using Windows Restore or something to restore the Windows bootloader.16:43

EriC^^CompuChip: well, you can't install to /dev/sdaX, grub isn't in the mbr it's in the efi partition in an ubuntu dir16:43
EriC^^CompuChip: if you want, you can set windows efi file to boot first in your uefi menu and move ubuntu's dir out of the efi partition if you want16:44

Validusas plytro said, Javascript is the worst offender when browsing, so you could install noscript17:56
daftykinsnot on my watch17:56
Validusthat will stop all scripts running on your page. Install adblock plus to stop malicious adverts.17:56
Validusand that should cut it down a lot. Noscript is quite a pain to get used to though as pretty much every web page will be running scripts17:57
Validusno antivirus or cleaner or whatever will really protect your now days, as that means the infection is already in and will usually find a place to hide17:57

daftykinsi'm guessing sda5 for / and possibly sdd3 or sdd5 as /home18:11
daftykinsyeah sdd5 then ;)18:12
daftykinsyour sdd3 seems to do nothing on that install18:12
ValidusI think it might be a media partition18:14
daftykinseasy way to find out, mount it18:15
Validusah its my AOSP partition18:17
Validusso in my home directory is a .ecryptfs I assume this means my home directory is encrypted?18:18

ubottuValidus or at least the repos: Ubuntu and Debian are closely related. Ubuntu builds on the foundations of Debian architecture and infrastructure, with a different community and release process. See https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/installation-guide/i386/what-is-debian.html - Remember, !repositories meant for Debian should NOT be used on Ubuntu!19:51

pantato_http://askubuntu.com/questions/452282/arista-transcoder-not-working <--- also this repo given here doesn't work20:39
pantato_it 404s as well20:39
datahoodUNIm95< what was wrong?20:39
wafflejockdatahood, ah didn't even know legacy grub was still an option,like UNIm95 said you'd want grub220:39
datahoodso whats the sudo command for grub 2...nevermind20:40
OerHekspantato_, do you really want such ancient software? http://transcoder.org/downloads/20:40
datahoodthe real problem is that I installed a 32 bit instead of 64...20:41
UNIm95datahood: than you need reinstall you system with liveCD|USB20:42
pantato_OerHeks: I tried that. Those links are all 404s as well.20:43
datahoodi can not reinstall..thats why Im in here trying to get help20:44

datahoodpaste bin= http://pastebin.com/Q8SUXtn620:44
OerHeksI don't need more than handbrake, avidemux or vlc to transcode.20:45
pantato_can i use vlc to hard code subs onto video???20:45
datahoodwhere it says devices in the file system, my cd/dvd drive want show and I can not reinstall any software from f-12 boot menu20:46
OerHekspantato_, i think not.20:46
datahoodUNIm95<< did you check out pastbin link?20:46
MonkeyDust_pantato_  want to create subtitles? i guess you need to make a srt file20:46
OerHeksdepends on the format really, maybe the guys in #ubuntu-studio can tell you more20:47
pantato_MonkeyDust_: no.20:47
UNIm95datahood: Yes. I saw that you installed wrog grub. But is you what to use 64-bit system you need to reinstall system20:47
pantato_I want to hard code an srt file on to an avi file20:47
pantato_i'm not creating the subs20:48
pantato_i have an avi file and an srt file20:48
marvinousHow can I watch rtmp streams in Ubuntu, properly?20:48
wafflejockUNIm95, they reinstalled grub2 in the second pastebin20:48
datahoodUNIm95< it want let me reinstall anything is what I been trying to tell you all...I reinstall grub2 like you asked, now Im about to go and reboot to see if I can reinstall 6420:49
wafflejockdatahood, there shouldn't be a reason you can't re-install though the OS isn't going to stop the BIOS from letting you choose a boot device20:49
datahoodfor some strange reason I can not reinstall anything...20:50
wafflejockdatahood, if it doesn't go to your bootable device or show it in the boot menu try going into the BIOS setup and change the boot order there20:50
UNIm95datahood: to select boot device on toshiba laptop you need to go to bios/uefi end disable fast(quick?) boot20:51
datahoodUNIm95<< I did change boot order still nothing..can I download a new 64 ubuntu bversion while here online or do I need to burn a copy?20:51
wafflejockdatahood, it's much easier to install from a media than try to get it to install from an existing system especially when you're trying to replace that system20:52
pantato_I give up. I'll just use windows20:52
UNIm95datahood: you need to download 64-bit install image, write it to usb stick or CD or DVD and make usual ubuntu installation.20:53
datahoodok.so I need to download 64 bit version and reinstall from that?20:53
datahoodI tried that all day yesterday and it would not burn copy of download nor add to usb stick20:54
Tex_Nickpantato_: have you looked into HandBrake ? It would transcode your AVI file & include the SRT file, however the output file would be MP4 (M4V) or MKV ... not sure if you want AVI output20:54

k1l_cylonmath: some video card and driver combitnations need the nomodeset kernel parameter21:11
k1l_!nomodeset | cylonmath21:11
ubottucylonmath: 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 parameter21:11

ValidusI'm trying to select my current home partition when installing ubuntu but it seems the only way I can select it is to - the partition and re-create it which obviously I don't want to do. Anyone done this before?21:13
OerHeksor maybe you don't trust them either ?21:13
Validusoh no wait, I just choose "change" and select it as a ext4 then say it should be /home21:14
MonkeyDust_Validus  i di it all the time, you have to create a / partition and format it ... bind the appropriate /dev/sdX to /home and DON'T format it21:15
OerHeksValidus, do you want to keep settings and cruft from your previous install ? select the manual mode, and un-tick 'format'your home partition in that menu21:15

onemansubmarineI already added the relevant codes to .baschrc but it is still not working21:28
wafflejockdatahood, it doesn't happen often but sometimes things can get corrupted in the download or transfer process21:28
wafflejockdatahood, do you see the boot media you're trying to boot from in the boot device order in your BIOS?21:28
datahoodwafflejock<  do I type in the terminal !md5sum?21:29
wafflejockdatahood, no see the links there21:29
wafflejockthe !thinghere is a command to ubottu to spit back some links and info21:29
wafflejockdatahood, should just be md5sum somefile.iso21:30
wafflejockdatahood, on the place you downloaded the iso it should also have the md5sum listed21:30
wafflejockdatahood, if they seem to match then they match and it's the same data21:30
wafflejockotherwise they'll be very different21:30
datahoodok...I only download from ubuntu.com21:30
wafflejockdatahood, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes21:31
datahoodbefore I installed the software I checked to see if it said copy is ok with no errors21:32
wafflejockdatahood, lots of places will list the md5sum with the download looks like ubuntu.com actually hides it for the sake of design I imagine but just match the iso you have with the hash there in the list that should be the output of md5sum21:32
ValidusRight anyone got any idea how to restore an encrypted home directory?21:32

Comstockmy knowledge is limited at best21:49
wafflejockbut aside from checking that everything downloaded correctly and just opening up the install media after transferring the iso to it to see that it has the files and maybe checking that it's marked bootable are about all I can think of21:49
