krabadorhi , how can i use only a usb wireless card and not the internal, in a notebook ?00:08
wileeekrabador, Be sure it works and use it, many cheap plug and play out there, marked as such in searches00:09
krabadorwileee, it works, but it seems i can't disable the internale, for use only the external00:09
wileeekrabador, Should show in the network manager or what ever your control is on your desktop00:09
wileeekrabador, I believe i will default to the ethernet00:10
krabadorif i try to disable the one, both don't works00:10
wileeekrabador, You will have to give good details, you're not new here.00:11
wileeekrabador, Could it be that you don;t know if the wifi is working, it may not be and ethernet off means you'rs off the net?00:12
wileeeshowing does not always mean working00:13

Guest21111When moving my touchpad, wakeups per second in power manager goes from 100 to 700. I'm on Ubuntu 14.0400:27
Guest21111PS/2 keyboard/mouse/touchpad shows 300+wakeups, and Local Interrupts goes up to 260 when using the touchpad.00:28
wileeeGuest21111, Little loose in the description, can you detail that a bit more, compartmentalize?00:28
Guest21111wileee: I'm using Mate Power Manager. When I go to the processor tab to view Processor wakeups per second, I get an average of 100 wakeups per second when not using the touchpad. When I move the mouse using the touchpad, it immediately jumps up to 600-700.00:29
Guest21111wileee: I'm thinking this may be related to my short battery life. I've looked around on forums, it's a common issue with synaptics touchpads. But I've found no solutions. Apparently it was fixed in Ubuntu 12.04, but I still have the issue in 14.04.00:30
wileeeGuest21111, Thanks, I've not used the app or mate. If it were me I would check does this show in the use and is this just looking for problems, seems high but may be a norm, not sure here. ;)00:30
feneco_worth it upgrading from 14.04lts to 15.04?00:32
wileeeGuest21111, ps2 mouse and keyboard is a bit old hardware, I believe basically shut off on new releases, but still thee.00:32
BotchlaBimho, no. I'd stick with 14.04 LTS till the next LTS comes out.00:32
wileeefeneco_, Your decision.00:32
Guest21111wileee: most laptops still use PS/2 internally for the touchpad. Also, when idle I get 0-1% cpu usage. But as soon as I begin moving the mouse, it goes up to 7-10%.00:33
wileeeGuest21111, Can't say what is normal in this, I would not be worried however if this does not effect the systems running, can't tell if it does for you. Peoplle how can cover this may ask just that question.00:34

squintydatahood,  firefox updates come through via the repo's updating process00:42
feneco_it's weird, so ubuntu 14.04 wont have software updates? like java or firefox?00:42
wileeedatahood, You are using the ubuntu repos on both apps correct?00:42
daftykinsdatahood: and somehow you hop from this to BIOS?00:42
doctorly_It seems like most tutorials are for a fresh install, it would be nice if I could just install grub2 from the install option on the live cd though.00:42
wileeedoctorly, you can00:43
doctorly_wilee: It keeps telling me I need to select a root though, and then it trys to install ubuntu onto the root. Is there something else I can do?00:43
datahooddaftykins< yes...because after I quarantined the virus I realized that I install ubuntu 32 bit instead of 64...somehow I can not reinstall any disc from my drive00:44
wileeedoctorly, some details might help00:44
daftykinsdatahood: sorry that's a crazy leap00:44
wafflejockdaftykins, have been having problems trying to help datahood because it seems the BIOS isn't respecting the boot order or something may be wrong with the installation media possibly but we tried a few things earlier00:45
wafflejockdaftykins, long story short is just trying to reinstall to 64-bit but can't get the bootable media going00:45
doctorly_wileee: there are two devices, a usb and a HDD. HDD has Ubuntu, USB needs grub2 so that I can boot into HDD. USB only needs to have grub2 on it, nothing else.00:45
daftykinswafflejock: righty-o, thanks for the heads up :)00:46
datahoodwafflejock: thanks00:46

nahtnamdaftykins: The home server is running ubuntu00:48
doctorly_wileee: I want it to always be the grub boot, because the bios actually can't boot to the hard drive. It is a eMMC, and is not detectable to the bios, but grub can boot the HDD. It is a really weird use case.00:48
daftykinsnahtnam: ok so setup samba then?00:48
datahoodwafflejock: I did get the boot order to change but did not boot from disc just went to a page that said *ubuntu, advanced options for ubuntu, memory test (memory test 86) serial console 11520000:48

Shed-34046the intel websites says my graphics card don't support linux.. Is that BS?00:50

wileeedoctorly, supergrub should bot it for now, I would hold out for the onboard and you knowing how to do it.00:55

redrum187In the installer dialog I show: /dev/sda7   ext4   131GB   5.6GB used    Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (14.04)03:27
BlasterBut if I edit it and run mount -a it mounts the new addition fine. So I'm confused.03:27
redrum187Is this where I should reinstall?03:27

alpha_I just built a desktop using a ssd to instal ubuntu 14.04, I have two xhds that I removed from their enclosures and plugged into sata3 ports on my mobo. They are partitioned in either fat32 or ntfs because I used them on a windows sys. Is there any way that I can get ubuntu to recognize my files and read/write to the disk?03:29
alpha_Also I just checked my bios and i have two extra hdds installed. 1 is a 1tb and the other a 2tb03:29
=== denbeiren is now known as zz_denbeiren
alpha_only the 2tb is being recognized by the bios so is there also a way to run a disk check like on windows?03:29

redrum187I tried to install on sda7 where it says Ubuntu is already installed and it said no root directory is known03:31
wileeeredrum187, The way your doing this leaves you with the chance for people to just comment, who do not know the issue, I remembered it exactly, you want someone like that or a detailed description to work from03:32
wileeeredrum187, You have your cart about a mile in front of you horse. ;)03:33
redrum187Thank you for the feedback.  I'm not sure how I should form my questions, or what the correct questions are to ask.03:33
wileeeredrum187, Like this basically W8 install, did not know UEFI install scenario, advised to do a reinstall using same partitions from something else (manual) install. Not sure of the instructions in this area.03:35
wileeeredrum187, Note not to detailed, but captures the essence of info needed to start with for a helper to have a general image.03:37
wileeeanyway hope all this helps, we want you to succeed!!!03:39
redrum187I am using a manufacturer installed win8.1 laptop.  Friday I installed Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS from a liveboot disk.  After troubleshooting, it was discovered that a file in /sys/firmware/efi was missing or damaged. I started over from scratch and want to confirm how I am reinstalling at this point (from livebooted Ubuntu).03:39
redrum187Me, too.03:39
redrum187Thank you for the support.03:39
wileeeredrum187, THe mention of the oem is excellent, good job. ;)  no problem helping03:40
niranjanHi, on 14.04, it was working fine until I got last update. After that wifi stopped working.03:41
wileeeredrum187, ON the average the help you want is around in about 3 hours more or less, not a specific person, a hand full of helpers actually03:41
redrum187Followup:  My primary issue is that Ubuntu does not show up in the BIOS boot order menu, nor does GRUB appear, regular boot defaults to windows.03:42
redrum187Ok, good to know.03:42
friedmicroredrum187, I'm currently running a dual-boot with Windows 8 as well...what's the manufacturer of the laptop, some of UEFI implementations are different03:43
wileeeredrum187, Be careful with additional info, put everything in each post, your basic just need to reinstall is the issue, that last post, will have people trying to fix what we know is broken. What happens is if you spread the info around it's hard top follow is all for some of us.03:43
wileeetop=to my bad03:44
wileeeredrum187, You are doing fine though, I will leave you alone, heh.03:44
redrum187No problem, I appreciate genuine feedback.03:45
friedmicroredrum187, I'm not going to give a recommendation that might break something...I'm afraid I don't have experience with Asus, but as wileee said earlier a reinstall is your best bet. Just don't accidentally erase Windows in the process.03:47

channmani'm having trouble accessing my USB flash drive. I want to make a bootable usb but i can't do anything with it04:38
wileeechannman, What have you tried, and how is it formatted?04:39
channmanwileee I have tried using gparted. how  do I tell you how it's formatted?04:39
wileeechannman, was hoping you knew. ;)04:40
wileeelike is it a fat32, ntfs, linux ext...etc04:40
wileeean apple formatted usb04:41
channmanwell in gparted it says unallocated but it is acting as a readonly folder04:41
wileeechannman, is it unmounted?04:41
channmanwileee as of now yes04:42
wileeechannman, So it says unallocated, is there anything that was there that you need?04:42
channmanwileee nope, can wipe it04:43
wileeechannman, So go to the top and click on make a new partition table, accept msdos, after that finishes, make a fat32 run  it and it should be good to go.04:44
wileeenew table just to be sure we have a basic fresh table is all04:44
channmanwileee i am able to do the new table and msdos, but when I choose fat32 it gives me an error04:46
wileeechannman, Can you say the error or would a picture of it be easier, I like a pic, to see the whole thang?04:48
OneMattIs there a lubuntu help channel, or can I ask here?04:49

Orbitsi was trying to run OBS which is experimental anyway (it's a program for streaming) and everything would work except when I streamed the screen was just black on the stream...

Orbitset me select the original driver i was using :(04:50
Matt_tenigrandpppp, yup i really like XFCE04:50

bishes414how can i view the connected USB device name?04:57
wileeechannman, Strange it should wipe the usb, the error is rather strange I have no idea. As an easy test I would unplug the usb, plugin unmount and try the table then the partition again.04:58
channmanwileee how exactly do i unmount?04:58
OneMattThat might do it.04:58
wileeechannman, You are now, gparted will do it for you on gthe plugin, shutdown gparted before you do any.04:59
bishes414I tried ls /dev and it lists all USB devices but how do I know which one is the one connected? Plz help.04:59
OneMattFor some reason, the filesystem of this drive is "promise_fasttrack_raid_member".04:59
wileeechannman, you can unmount the usb if it is, probably is not mounted, as an unalocated05:00
grandppppMatt_teni: sudo blkid what does that say05:01
Matt_teninot sure05:01
Matt_teniim on unity as for now05:01
grandppppMatt_teni: type sudo blkid in the terminal05:02
wileeechannman, Sorry m=not the best description, since it is unallocated it should not mount, so unplug plugin, make sure not mounted and do the table a partition again. My bad.05:03

HiltonHi, sorry this is long, figured I'd get it all out at once. After getting tired of my kid's inexplicable ability to get Windows infected with dozens of programs despite every attempt to lock it down, I've decided to 'introduce' them to Ubuntu... but I can't get their accounts to work. I initially set up their accounts without passwords, intending to have them log in and set their own. I then...09:19
Hilton...changed my mind and set passwords for them all, but none could log in. Research found they were all part of a 'nopasswdlogin' group or something; I removed them all from that group, but NOW Ubuntu simply says "Invalid password." at all times, right password or not. This does not happen on the two admin account.09:19
k1l_Luyin: yes, that looks better for a start09:20
Luyink1l so I'm going to try remove anything else than that wich works for me and reboot?09:20
cfhowlettHilton, TWO admin accounts?09:20
HiltonI even tried deleting and recreating all their accounts, with no change. Note that if I use su in a terminal window, or switch to a TTY console, I can log in to their accounts just fine.09:21
Hiltoncfhowlett: Set my wife as administrator so she could make policy changes to things like Timekpr without needing MY password.09:21
cfhowlettHilton, :)  niiiiiice.09:21
HiltonFinding a version of Timekpr that worked on 14.04 was a task in itself... 300,000 references to the original that stopped working at 11.x, 1 reference to someone else's updated version that works on 11-15.09:22
HiltonSo, this is strictly a GUI problem not letting the standard accounts log in with the right password. Why!?09:23

lobo_nzHi, Im trying to upgrade an old server from Lucid to Precise and have many errors like this "No candidate ver:" all the things I have tried have not fixed those errors yet, any ideas on what to do?09:52
cfhowlett!eolupgrade | lobo_nz,09:53
ubottulobo_nz,: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades09:53
kreazulleTJ: Done that and I got a list of .ko: bthid, dhd, exfat_core, exfat_fs, hwreg, j4fs, param, rng-core, scsi_wait_scan, vpnclient.09:53
johelishBen64: Is it possible that just the symlink is gone? With fdisk -l I can see the hdds but I don't know how to access them09:53
TJ-kreazulle: So the module(s) you need aren't there. That confirms you'll need to build that same kernel with the required module(s) enabled.09:54
Ben64johelish: check dmesg for errors09:54

nils13is it possible to have help on vsftpd here ?09:56
Ben64nils13: the best thing you can do with vsftpd is uninstall it and use sftp instead09:57
cfhowlettnils13, possible but only if you give copious details.  telepaths use Miley Cyrus OS09:57
kreazulleTJ: Just to be on the safe side, I need to build a new ubuntu image or do I have to have a new Android rom that has the modules? Again kinda noob09:57
nils13ok, will sftp work with Filezilla ?09:57
Ben64nils13: google says yes09:58
nils13ok, I found something googling sftp and understood sftp work only with command line, I was wrong, ok, I remove vsftp and install sftp ... thanks09:59
nils13thank you Ben6409:59
Ben64all you need is a ssh server for it, theres no package called "sftp"09:59
TJ-kreazulle: You'd need to build the exact same kernel but with the config options for the modules you need also enabled. Then you can install those modules into the chroot. I'd *think* the first thing to try would be check-out the android kernel at the same commit as the installed kernel, identify the modules you need, run "make xconfig" to add the modules you'll need, then try to build. If you're new to kernel hacking this will be a tortuous experience due to the10:01
TJ-differences between android and mainline/Ubuntu kernels, and the workflow required, so put aside several days to master it :)10:01
nils13Ben64: I have openssh-server installed, then how do I install sftp if there is not package named sftp ?10:02
Ben64you're already done10:02
kreazulleTJ: Ty for your time and patience. Hopefully after this experience I wil call myself lessnoob :)10:03
nils13Ben64: ok, I have a Filezilla connexion, I can write in my home dir, but still cannot write on /var/www/html/somedir10:03
Ben64you should be able to write anywhere you user can10:04
nils13the user I am using, is the first user created when Ubuntu server install10:04
Ben64can you write to /var/www/html/somedir using that user10:04
nils13Ben64: in a terminal, I use sudo to write anywhere, then, what about FTP via Filezilla ?10:05
dpnuxHi, is there any application on Ubuntu to see what an application doing such as create new folder and settings?10:05
Ben64nils13: you could add your user to the group of the directory, you could take ownership of the directory, theres a few ways to do it10:06
nils13Ben64: I can write anywhere using sudo in a terminal, and look likes sudo is not available via Filezilla10:07

nils13Ben64: then ?, do I have to create a special user for FTP ?, and how I give this user rights to write anywhere ?10:11
Ben64you don't. read what i said about security10:11
TJ-nils13: If you "adduser $USER www-data" you'll also need to allow the "www-data" group *write* access to "/var/www/" and sub-dirs10:12
nils13ok, I do not understand how to do this ?, allowing one user to write anywhere via FTP, with a strong password ?, not good ?, same issue as ssh connexion as root, no ?10:13
Ben64you don't need to "write anywhere" over ftp sftp or anything really10:13

th3_4dm1nhello world10:14
th3_4dm1nwell fuck you too10:15
nils13TJ, this is a brand new Ubuntu server install, and what I can see, is all www dir belong to root, should I change all this to www-data ?10:15
nils13ok Ben6410:15
TJ-nils13: /var/www will be owned by root, but the entries in it, and sub-dirs, should be owned by "www-data"10:17
nils13Ok TJ- , I changed chown www/* to www-data:www-data10:18
pragomer1how can I do a setting... that allows me executing bash scripts on (all) ntfs partitions I use ?10:19
nils13I've seen I have a user and a group named www-data10:19
nils13now, should I add user nils to group www-data ?, I try ...10:20
TJ-nils13: As far as I recall, "/var/www/html/" is the DocumentRoot for apache, and that already is owned by "www-data"10:21
nils13no, not enough, still cannot write in /var/www/*10:21
nils13TJ-: yes, you are right, this is the case10:21
Ben64you do need to re log in in order to have the group stiff to take effect10:21
Ben64group stuff*10:21
TJ-nils13: /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf:12:       DocumentRoot /var/www/html10:22
nils13ok Ben64 , re log via Filezilla, right ?10:22
TJ-nils13: do "sg touch /var/www/html/hello.txt" and you should see the user has write permissions10:23
nils13no, I re log in Filezilla, but still cannot write in /var/www/10:23
TJ-nils13: you have to set write permissions for the group. The default is read-only. "chmod -R g+w /var/www/html"10:25
nils13TJ-: "sg touch ..." says touch group does not exist, if I touch a file, via ssh, as I did sudo bash, the file will belong to root, I have a test file, that belong now to www-data:www-data10:27
nbusronehi , I wonder why after updated nvidia driver my brightness got reset every restart ?10:27
nbusronehow to permanent set brightness of nvidia ?10:27
nils13TJ-: yes I can see, group can only read, I change it ...10:27
nils13TJ-: it works !!!10:29
TJ-nils13: sorry, the 'sg' commmand needs the group name, too. It's just a good way to test without needing to log-out/log-in, as in "sg www-data touch /var/www/hello.txt"10:31
nils13ok, to summary, no special FTP server is needed, ssh + ftp (native) is enough, user nils do not need to belong to www-data group, right ?10:31
nils13ok TJ- for sg, I understood10:32
TJ-nils13: user permissions will require any user that wants write access to /var/www/html/ to be a member of www-data group10:32
nils13TJ-: yes, I tried, add/remove me from www-data group, it works as you describe it, so thank you very much for your help !10:37
nils13and Ben64 as well, thanks !10:37
nils13when I ps aux | grep ftp I can see /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server, that means openssh has its own ftp server ?10:38

=== carlo is now known as Guest77105
nils13TJ-: man does not tell me if sftp comes with openssh ?, is it a "basic" package of ubuntu server ?10:43
nils13I do not remember to have installed sftp by myself10:43
Luyinnils13 why should sftp have something to do with openssh?10:45
k1l_nils13: it does10:46
nbusronehow to permanent set brightness of nvidia ? for desktop ?10:46
k1l_install openssh-server and you have sftp access too on that machine10:46
nils13Luyin: I don't know ?, I try to understand, because of the S ?10:46
nils13k1l_: so sftp comes with openssh install, right ?10:47
Luyinnils13 no it doesn't.10:47
Guest77105do you know an application for hacker a instagram account (sorry for bad english)10:49
Ben64not here10:49
nils13Luyin: ok, so it comes with Ubuntu server, without having to install it manually ?10:49
Guest77105xx_Kr0nUs_xx: an application for hacker a instagram account?10:50
cfhowlett!hacking | Guest77105, no and we are not going to help you hack anyones account10:50
ubottuGuest77105, no and we are not going to help you hack anyones account: A hacker is a person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system, computers and computer networks in particular, as defined by Request for Comments (RFC) 1392 - i.e. a good programmer  -- crackers on the other hand break systems, see also !piracy10:50
nils13What I checked while installing Ubuntu server was : openssh server / LAMP server / Mail server, anything else, so, sftp comes with one of these choice, or with Ubuntu "native"10:51

XDS2010cfhowlett:  best guess on the other stuff ?10:56
nils13Luyin: when I dpkg -l *ftp* I can read openssh-sftp-server package is installed, so it should had been install with openssh-server install I suppose, as I did not installed it by myself10:56
cfhowlettXDS2010, best *advice* = ask the networking folks about network issues.10:56
Ben64cfhowlett: he's just been going around to a bunch of channels asking it10:56
k1l_nils13: if you install a server image openssh-server is already installed. since that makes sense on a server.10:57

Silenced_v2Guys. I am using wine right now . And its clashing with my GPU drivers. So can i uninstall wine right now ? Will the installed applications work ?13:18
lokany someone knows here how to resize windows permanentrly. what ever i do and start program again, i get default size-resize?13:19
pbxSilenced_v2, windows applications will not function if wine is not installed, no13:21
MonkeyDustlokany  in dconf-editor maybe13:22
pbxbut you can uninstall wine, yes13:22
lokanyMonkeyDust, pls can you be more specific?13:22
lokanyMonkeyDust, where in dconf-edito i can find for window 'decoration" or something similar?13:23

Silenced_v2pbx: Suggest me something that's similar to wine13:24
pbxSilenced_v2, there is nothing similar.  if you want to run windows applications under linux your options are 1) wine or 2) a VM (e.g. virtualbox) running windows13:30
Silenced_v2pbx : What about play on linux ?13:31
pbxSilenced_v2, that's built on top of wine13:31
Silenced_v2So is there any way i could prevent wine from conflicting with my GPU drivers13:32
MonkeyDustSilenced_v2  try #winehq13:33
pbxSilenced_v2, not that i know of. but i'm not a gamer so i haven't pushed the limits at all. i agree, join #winehq13:33

bitcoinassassinonla: I used to use http://www.dban.org/ to wipe a drive. Overwrites everything - mbr, partitions, etc.15:00
Amozbitcoinassassin, you can backup everything as long as you exclude the non-FS parts of the tree I Believe.15:00
peetbogonla "man shred"15:00
Amozbitcoinassassin, but yeah, I usually want a clean install when I do mine, so I have a separate /home partition because of that. And if I backup, I just do a rsync on /home.15:01

onlanot wiping ssd disk, just old hd15:04
daftykinsonla: yeah just run as Amoz says essentially15:04
bitcoinassassinonla: you create a boot disk that will boot into dban's utilities - and wipe from there. Ubuntu version doesn't matter.15:04
onlain any case I should wipe from live usb stick or dvd?15:04

bitcoinassassinI believe this is what they're saying, anyway15:07
onlasounds kinda shady input some mysterious command, when I could just delet partitions from gparted on live usb stick though. Is this command method better against trying to retrieve data like dban?15:07
Amozonla, the partition deletion will not clear the actual data15:07
Amozit will just remove the partition layouts15:07
onlaand with this dd command I am not breaking the hd either I guess15:07
onlaand it will be detected and I can format it later, ok15:08
Amozdetected? format?15:08
bitcoinassassinonla: for the record, dban doesn't retrieve data; is free erasure software15:08
daftykinsonla: deleting partitions doesn't do a thing.15:08
Amozthe dd command I wrote will clear the whole disk, write zeroes *everywhere*15:08
bitcoinassassinAmoz: but from a live usb or dvd, right?15:09
onlaafter that dd, when the buyer goes to some partition manager, he can see the 1tb disk, and he can choose to format it as ntfs or ext3 or such?15:09
daftykinsonla: yeah because it's a hard disk...15:09
daftykinsit doesn't stop being a hard disk15:09
onlayea I dont want it to erase the data on that live usb, but the hard disk15:09
Amozonla, when you're in a live environment, /dev/sda is *probably* your USB drive15:10
daftykinsAmoz: nope15:10
onlaokay, so I shouldnt run the command then with /dev/sda but replace that with the path to the 1tb disk15:10

cfhowlettTrudko, go into your admin account and delete the other user15:11
bitcoinassassinonla: yes, you need to run the command with the path to your 1tb disk or whatever else you want to erase15:12
daftykinsonla: just run "sudo parted -l" on live session boot to confirm which disk is which15:12
Trudkocfhowlett: how do I go into admin account when I only have one account which I want to delete?15:13
OerHeksmircx1, nope. you might want to ask in #mircx on undernet for build support, their homepage does not give any clue either15:13

kulelu88what about XFCE?15:34
Amozonla, a HDD is very slow latency wise, so it's good to put big blocks of data to the write queue at the same time15:34

daftykinsvubuntor: i'd boot a live session and chroot the install, then run update-grub perhaps15:37
Amozdaftykins, if he uses dd of=dev then it will be very close to linear access I think.15:37
vubuntordaftykins: i didn't found anything, other entries in the bios/uefi settings are blank.15:37
vubuntordaftykins: the point is i can't even boot into any live sessions15:37
EriC^^vubuntor: why not?15:38
vubuntorUEFI blocks me because it sticks with the WBM,  no other entry15:38
EriC^^is the usb first in the boot order?15:38
daftykinsvubuntor: shutdown from Windows properly first, "shutdown -s -t 1"15:38
Amozvubuntor, so you can't even get to a boot-menu by ESC of F2 or delete ?15:38
vubuntorAmoz: i did get boot menu,but the only entry on that menu is Windows Boot Manager, no entry for USB or DVD15:39
onlamaybe that shred is faster shred -n 5 -vz /dev/sda15:39
vubuntordaftykins: isn't that the same to disable fastboot?15:40
daftykinsdoesn't hurt to try in case something is funky15:40
daftykinsi think you have bigger problems if your flash drive isn't showing up in a boot menu15:40
Amozonla, it will definitely not be faster.15:40
vubuntorI will try and come back later15:40
EriC^^vubuntor: there's also fastboot in the bios, if it's enabled disable it15:41
daftykinsonla: waste of time, 3 users gave you the same advice - you should take it.15:41
vubuntordaftykins: this is the biggest problem since my computer is EFI only,no legacy.15:41
Amozonla, 5 times rewriting and a zeroing out in the end. That will take about 24h at least.15:41
vubuntorEriC^^: my bios has no fastboot option15:41

daftykinsonla: why do you keep saying chunk? if you mean the bs= then that's blocksize, thus it has a name15:43
onlaoh ok15:44
daftykinsyour write speed on a hard disk slows from start to end, so no point calculating it as a fixed figure15:44
daftykinsanyway all this time spent talking about it, you could be running it...15:44

Abhijitexecuted both commands given on that page.15:48
OerHeksAbhijit, i had that issue too, i have nvidia, and needed to set vlc - preferences - video - output to VDpau ...15:51
Abhijiteven if wont play due to codecs, atleast it should appear in the file manager right?15:51
AbhijitOerHeks, my vcd is not detected at all.15:51

AbhijitOerHeks, it plays that way.15:54
Abhijitbut ubuntu is not asking me when i insert cd and also its not appearing on my filemanager?15:54
MonkeyDustOerHeks  +115:54
Abhijitthanks for that btw OerHeks :-)15:54
daftykinsdoes it really need to?15:54
daftykinsyou know when you put a disc in, because... you put a disc in15:54
OerHeksdoes it appear in filemanager as removable?15:54
Abhijitdaftykins, yes. how will i use cd drive in future?15:54
AbhijitOerHeks, no15:55
daftykinsAbhijit: depends on the task15:55
onlawhat the.. the bios has the usb mass storage set as 1 boot option, but it wont boot it but goes to grub. Now I removed the 2nd option of SATA disk altogether frmo 2nd option, and still boots to grub menu15:56
vubuntorstill no USB on boot menu15:56
OerHeksAbhijit, I hope you didn't choose 'do nothing' and 'remember my choise´ once, so that menu never turns up again15:56
onlavubuntor: was that to me?15:56
vubuntoronla: no15:56
Abhijitdaftykins, yeah but how can I leave it like that? all the things need to be in working condition in new laptop no?15:57
AbhijitOerHeks, no. it never asked any prompt.15:57
AbhijitOerHeks, where do I do that setup?15:57

daftykinsthis is way beyond ubuntu relevance right now though15:58
OerHeksthere is also an option 'other media'15:58

AbhijitOerHeks, ok. will try. thanks.16:00
daftykinsonla: if you wouldn't mind reducing the running commentary...16:00
onlaI guess my ubuntu usb stick is not working. I tried 3 different ports, but it wont boot to the live cd.16:02
onlasorry. so I add to this that if anyone have any ideas if something else is up :)16:03
daftykinsonla: so remake it16:03
Abhijitonla, checked everything from bios settings? enable usb booting thes set usb disk on first priority etc?16:03
daftykinspriority is a waste of time, there's no need to adjust boot order16:04
daftykinshasn't been for years16:04
daftykinsjust use one-time menus :>16:05
onlaah yes. Now it boots. I tried with usb 3 ports first, and it didnt work. Modified the boot menu and tried again no avail, then after switching to usb2 slot, the boot menu option had moved the usb down on priority16:06
onlanow for the scary dd command :)16:07
Abhijitwhy do you need dd after booting into live ubuntu usb?16:07
onlaI gonna wipe 1tb disk16:08

HiltonHi, sorry this is long, figured I'd get all the information out at once. I'm getting a "incorrect password" errors in the GUI. I just did a fresh install of 14.04 on a PC and set up 6 accounts; my wife and I (admin) and 4 for the kids. I initially set up their accounts without passwords, intending to have them log in and set their own. I then changed my mind and set passwords for them all,...16:09
Hilton...but none could log in. Research found they were all part of a 'nopasswdlogin' group or something; I removed them all from that group, but NOW Ubuntu simply says "Invalid password." at all times, right password or not. This does not happen on the two admin account. Note that using 'su' in the terminal, or switching to a TTY console, I can log in to any of their accounts just fine.16:09
daftykinsthen if can also get progress reports by "sudo killall dd -USR1"16:09
HiltonWhat could the problem be!?16:09
daftykinsHilton: nuke those accounts and start again.16:10
jwashhi everyone, i'm on 14.04, is there a way to make the behavior of 10 min of inactivity not lead to the login screen and stoppage of play for media like youtube and online radio. does anyone know how to make it not do this?16:10
onladaftykins: I will choose 4MB bs16:11
onlaif it would be a bit faster16:11
Hiltondaftykins: I did. Same problem.16:11
onlaif I kill the dd while it is in progress, I would need to start from begin, no?16:11
Amozonla, FYI, you can check the speed and/or written amount later by sending a signal to dd16:11
onlaso I need no sudo for dd command16:11
daftykinsHilton: what about delete them, create one... log into one, set the password... then try?16:12
daftykinsonla: no kill with -USR1 prints progress16:12
HiltonDoes it make any difference if I use the User Accounts app, or the Users and Groups app I installed? (forgot the actual name...)16:12
Amozthat way you can check e.g. after 1 hour it has writen X amounts of data, and IF it is interrupted, you can use the "skip" argument to dd if you start again. That way you dont have to start over completely16:12
daftykinsonla: i wouldn't have told you to do it if it stopped it, would i? :)16:12
Abhijitjwash, its in the brightness and lock settings in system setting16:13

OerHekstechkamar, use parted16:35

ubottuparted (source: parted): disk partition manipulator. In component main, is standard. Version 3.2-7ubuntu1 (vivid), package size 43 kB, installed size 183 kB16:35
techkamarso itz not possible with "fdisk"?16:35
horatiohbI assume the installer is using something like GParted, but it will allow me to create a new partition table only for the USB stick I'm booting from. How do I get it to see and partition my hard drive?16:36

daftykinshoratiohb: unless you hit ctrl+alt+F1 maybe?16:39
horatiohbOerHeks: ^^16:39
xx_Kr0nUs_xxdo you know a program for Linux 14.04 for open .zip files?16:39
horatiohbIt seems I'm not being clear. Ubuntu is asking me to define a new partition table, but it won't let me do so for my hard drive. This is the process one has to follow before installation can actually begin.16:40
MonkeyDust!zip | xx_Kr0nUs_xx16:40

artoisonla: dunno, maybe it's just old hardware?17:31
artoisfsociety_: with free _partition space_?17:31
MonkeyDustfsociety_  boot from the live usb/dvd and run gparted17:31
artoisbrothersome: why puppylinux, hate yourself?17:31
fsociety_artois: Yup.17:31
artoisfsociety_: okay, if you have enough free partition space for Ubuntu, then just install it to that space17:31
brothersomeOh writing zeroes at a disk is easier with shred17:31
artoisideally it will all 'just work'17:31
artoisbrothersome: nope17:32
onlaartois: yeah. I hope so. It did dd some 100GB already in some 15-20 minutes, and now some 80minutes has passed, so if it kept that pace and it is still doing it, it shouldn't be done yet17:32
brothersomeartois, just a choice17:32
MonkeyDustfsociety_  partitioning is the hardest part when you're new to linux, what follows is very easy and swift17:32
artoisonla: you can kill -USR1 the pid and get some output17:32
fsociety_artois: That's the part I don't know how to do. I've always installed Ubuntu alone, never alongside another OS, so I've never had to create partitions manually before.17:32
onlaartois: yea I used that, but the screen is dark now and I cant get to the terminal17:32
artoisfsociety_: you don't have to create partitions manually17:32
artoisfsociety_: just point the installer at the empty space, not the already-used-by-windows space17:33
artoisonla: CTRL+ALT+F2?17:33
fsociety_artois: In the installation, I have to select "something else," correct?17:33
artoisonla: why'd you want to wipe the disk?17:33
artoisfsociety_: which version of Ubuntu?17:33
fsociety_artois: It's 14.04.0217:34
onlaim selling the pc and I wanted to format it or such. ctrl alt f2 not giving me terminal window or anything either17:34
brothersomeonla, shred is much easier and faster17:34
artoisfsociety_: I imagine the first 'alongside' option will suffice17:35
artoisbrothersome: shred is both slower, more pointless, and not applicable to his situation17:35
keithmorgI think I put too much info in my original request. My main problem is nothing can get to my shares on the server. Connection refused. All raids are mounted and accessible locally.17:35
fsociety_artois: What does that option do?17:35
artoisonla: k17:35
=== cam is now known as Guest80207
artoisonla: dunno, I usually use http://www.sysresccd.org/ with kms off for such things, much less overhead, much less to go wrong17:35
artoisfsociety_: it'll say something like 'install Ubuntu alongside Windows: be able to use either'17:35
=== feneco_ is now known as lupado
fsociety_artois: I've heard that option sometimes messes things up?17:36
=== lupado is now known as vulpes
artoisfsociety_: what've you heard never messes things up?17:36
fsociety_artois: If I were to install it using the "something else" option, what would I have to do?17:37
artoisfsociety_: more work17:37
artoismore opportunities to mess things up yourself17:37
MonkeyDustfsociety_  then you can create a seperate /home partition17:37
artoisyou could if you wanted to, at that17:37
artoisa separate one, anyway17:37
fsociety_artois: If I do the correct things, I won't mess things up. I just have to know the correct steps..17:38
artoisthat's true, if you don't mess things up, things aren't messed up17:38
xprophetxthere are plenty of guides how to set it up the way you need it to be17:38
artoisso, so true17:38
daftykinsfsociety_: is your win10 install legacy or EFI?17:39
fsociety_daftykins: EFI17:39
daftykinsfsociety_: make sure you boot the ubuntu flash drive as EFI then17:39
keithmorgAfter upgrade to 15.04 none of my local area network client computers can connect to the shares on the server. All disks are mounted and shared. All disks are accessible locally. Connection refused on all clients.17:39

daftykinsonla: just watch the disk activity LED.17:40
OneMattI am having an issue.17:40
Amozkeithmorg, verify that samba is running, try to connect locally with cifsclient?17:41
OneMattI have a computer that will not install lubuntu if the drive is connected.17:41
daftykinsOneMatt: what kind of system? and define 'will not install' - what happens?17:41
MikeRLBack. I noticed I'm only having issues it seems with the show desktop shortcut.17:42
OneMattHodgepodge collections of parts, but an old AMD and some ddr1 sticks.17:42
MikeRLIf I assign a combo, like CTRL+ALT+D to show the desktop, it will work only once if I switch via ALT+TAB to show the desktop and press CTRL+ALT+D immediately. After the first keypress it doesn't work at all until I select it from ALT+TAB again.17:43
keithmorgAmoz, is that the actual command line argument?17:43
=== xangua_ is now known as xangua
daftykinsOneMatt: 'desktop' would have sufficed :) so what happens?17:43
MikeRLI wonder if Unity's ALT+TAB is conflicting with it or something. Anyone have any ideas?17:43
MonkeyDustMikeRL  try windows-key D to show the desktop17:43
OneMattIt gets stuck at the loading screen, and will either a) exit to shell, b) go into kernel panic after 20+ minutes of the loading screen, or c) stall at the loading screen, sometimes for up to half an hour plus.17:44
MikeRLIs that the default?17:44
MikeRLMonkeyDust, what exactly does Win+D do?17:44
MonkeyDustMikeRL  shows the desktop17:45
Amozkeithmorg, I don't rememeber. But you can surely check the logs as well.17:45
Amozfor the samba server, that is.17:45
MikeRLMaybe I've screwed up keyboard shortcuts by now. I could do a unity reset.17:45
MonkeyDustMikeRL  instead of asking, try it yourself17:45
OneMattIf needed, I can give the specs of the hardware.17:45
daftykinsOneMatt: so rather than it won't install, really it's the live session that won't boot?17:45
MikeRLSeems to be hit and miss.17:46
daftykinsOneMatt: check the disk and run memtest before going any further17:46
OneMattInstall or live boot.17:46
OneMattUm, what exactly is memtest?17:47
MikeRLMonkeyDust, Still doesn't seem to work.17:48
molgrumwhat's the difference between fglrx-updates and fglrx?17:48
AmozOneMatt, checking memory, you can find it in the bootmenu for ubuntu17:48
OneMattBecause I am at 70k+ errors and counting...17:48
OneMattMake that 100K.17:48
Amozmolgrum, probably newer modules for the GPU17:48
AmozOneMatt, sounds like it's borked17:48
daftykinsOneMatt: what, on running memtest? so your RAM is bad.17:48
MikeRLIs there a terminal command I could use to simulate showing the desktop? That may help.17:49
keithmorgAmoz. I have verfied that Samba is running (Samba on the command line).  I am suspicious that it has something to do with defaults being set after the upgrade and I need to define something. I am not a linux person but I can use the terminal17:49
daftykinsnot odd for some old DDR1 you cobbled together ;)17:49
OneMattThe supremely odd thing is that winXP was working on this thing just yesterday.17:49
AmozOneMatt, have you recently touched/reinserted the RAM?17:49
keithmorgPossibly in localhost....just a guess from a novice.17:49
AmozOneMatt, reinsert it then17:50
OneMattWell, bother.17:50
daftykinsOneMatt: sounds like you fried it with static perhaps17:50
Amozit might be halfway connected as well17:50
daftykinsAmoz: nope17:50
daftykinswouldn't have POST'd17:50
Amozdaftykins, oh, really?17:50
daftykinsunless it's entirely out :)17:50
Amozdaftykins, are you sure?17:51
daftykinsbeen dealing with hardware for 20 years now17:51
OneMattOdd, thought that static at 60+ percent humidity would not be an issue.17:51
=== user is now known as Guest24408
Amozdaftykins, I'm not convinced. I recently removed my RAM to try out another MB, and I got the same errors for one of the sticks. Reinsertion solved the problems.17:52
MikeRLTHat's odd. If I add show desktop to the launcher, and use it once, the keyboard shortcut works more often.17:52
daftykinsAmoz: oh well :)17:52
OneMattLooks like it is the 256MB sticks I got out of the dell at fault, oh well.17:52
daftykinsOneMatt: cleaning the connector pins with a pencil eraser before reinsertion is always good, as is taking a toothbrush to the slots17:53
daftykinsanyway, knew that wasn't ubuntu at fault ;)17:53
OneMattYeah, I kind of suspected it was a hardware issue.17:53
OneMattIs it ok to turn off the power in the middle of memtest?17:54
AmozOneMatt, yes17:54
daftykinsif you did you wouldn't have come in here, an OS support channel17:54
AmozOneMatt, can you boot it now when the faulty sticks are removed? Did you try reinsert and memtest again?17:54
OneMattIt is still running the first memtest, but not for long.17:54
daftykinsit's always frustrating when someone claims they knew what was wrong all along.17:54
MikeRLVery strange. It doesn't seem to like it if I'm quick with showing the desktop. But the behavior improved a lot when I added the Show Desktop buttonn to the Unity Launcher.17:54
keithmorgI don't17:54
OneMattIf you were here last night, you would have seen me blaming the HDD.17:55
OneMattWhich was still wrong, but not lubuntu's fault.17:55
MikeRLGuess I was too used to how Windows was by default. If I slowly press Win and then D a few seconds later, everything works.17:57
pochecheCould somebody help me, Im stuck with this for a week without system. Please help. Thanks a lot any way17:58

RustySha1kleforddo we have a good solution for google drive yet?18:04
fathomWhen programs will not launch, normally I switch distros but figure I would ask around to see if a fix exists. Otherwise it may mean that the OS is unstable.18:05
MonkeyDustRustySha1kleford  define "good solution"  http://askubuntu.com/questions/544646/how-to-install-google-drive-on-ubuntu-14-04#54465018:05
RustySha1klefordan excellent solution would be an official app18:06
daftykinsfathom: got any user configs that could be conflicting? i don't do any audio stuff so can't comment on that18:06
RustySha1klefordI guess good means one that works without hickups18:06
daftykinsRustySha1kleford: right, for a proprietary product from Google - for a free OS18:06
RustySha1klefordhiccups, even18:06
RustySha1klefordmeh, I'd rather get the official tool. Free as in beer is good enough for me18:06
fathomdaftykins, I do not know.18:07
Amozfathom, really looks like you have errors related to PA/ALSA etc.18:07
daftykinsfathom: well either look or try running it in a guest session / different user18:07
MonkeyDustRustySha1kleford  dirty workaround: I installed Chromixium, a Chrome OS clone, in VMware... it has google drive18:07
fathomAmoz, How would I fix?18:07
fathomAmoz, Or work around?18:07
RustySha1klefordMonkeyDust: how do you live with that lol18:07
Amozfathom, no idea. Best advice is to join PA/ALSA channels and confirm the error, and if so let them guide you18:07
MonkeyDustRustySha1kleford  i don't use google drive18:08
fathomIs  Verveta  dev version?18:08
daftykinsfathom: no18:08
RustySha1klefordI'm pretty invested in the Google platform. Android works best if you embrace it all18:08
daftykinsfathom: 15.04 = year.month, that's when they come out18:08

daftykinsgoddard: which hardware is this too?19:06
TJ-ioria: not having a lot of success. The system already had a /home/ftp/ and an ftp user from a previous OS release, but vsftp doesn't seem to want to play so far19:06

nothingmuchHi, I have a version of libglapi-mesa that seems to conflict with vlc: http://paste.ubuntu.com/11995154/19:08
nothingmuchI think it got in there from a ppa which I did not properly run ppa-purge on, but I don't know it was a while ago19:09
nothingmuchapt-get install libglapi-mesa=10.5.9-2ubuntu1~vivid1 wants to reinstall half my system19:09
nothingmuchand remove the other half19:09
TJ-ioria: OK, solved! somehow there were 3 instances of vsftpd running!19:10
TJ-cryptodan_laptop: Looks like it was vsftpd before, too :)19:10
ioriaTJ-  gooooood19:10
daftykinsgoddard: you probably won't be catered for well by either of those repo drivers.19:10
OerHeksnothingmuch, add that ppa again, update, and remove it with ppa-purge.19:11
silvaioria lol, just noticed your last comment. Can't really install any more ram because it isn't manufactured for my particular mobo anymore... the few people still selling it charge too much money for a tiny amount of ram per stick.19:11
ioriaTJ-  i was suggesting you to check /etc/group19:11
nothingmuchOerHeks: how can I find out which ppa it was? it could have been xorg-edgers but I'm not sure19:11
goddarddaftykins oh? what is recommended?19:11
daftykinsgoddard: probably latest from AMD if you game19:12
ioriasilva i see....   maybe a good swap file19:12
OerHeksnothingmuch, maybe apt history, or softwarecenter history19:12
goddarddaftykins not to worried about gaming just dont want to it to go black and id like the performance increases as opposed to the open drivers that work great but aren't as fast19:12
daftykinsyeah, up to date from AMD then19:13
TJ-ioria: Yes, I had checked /etc/{passwd,group} to ensure ftp was configured correctly.  Instructing the CDU to reboot and fetch the firmware over FTP now... here's hoping19:13
ioriaTJ-  good luck19:14
TJ-ioria: thanks... funny thing is, looking at the installed /home/ftp/pub/ it contains older firmware for these same CDUs ... so obviously I used vsftpd to upgrade the firmware some years ago :)19:15
jwashnice, vsftpd working?19:15
TJ-jwash: thanks... yes, eventually.19:16

onlahey. I erased data from disk with dd. now when I open gparted, it says I don't have a partition table. I need to create one before I could create partitions. There is 9 different partition table types to choose from: aix, amiga, bsd, dvh, gpt, mac, msdos, pc98, sun and loop. Now I am not going to install ubuntu here, but if I would boot with win7 installation media, can its OS installer install the partition table, or can I do that from this gparted?20:21
bekksonla: If you are going to install windows, install windows. No need for gparted.20:22
impalle@onla msdos and fat3220:22
daftykinsonla: i thought you were selling it wiped.20:22
onlaI am selling, but I was wondering whether a hd bought from a store is equipped with some partition table already, and the windows installation media wouldn't have skills to install partition table but I guess it can :s20:23

daftykinsthey are totally blank20:23
daftykinsyes, any OS can :)20:23

ubottuShed-34046: Wubi was a way to install Ubuntu from within Windows, but it is no longer supported in recent versions of Ubuntu and was never well maintained even for Ubuntu 12.04. Do not use Wubi. See !install for other options for installing Ubuntu.20:25
daftykinsWUBI is dead.20:25

daftykinswileee: i don't care for your opinions, this is support20:26
wileeedaftykins, That is a two way street, I only stated what is a standard procedure, you don;t run others install, and you had to harass me.20:26
Shed-34046bekks and ubottu if i install ubuntu alongside windows will i have to manually partition the drive for it, I know about GRUb but if say 8 months later i don't want ubuntu anymore would windows bootloader restore itself?

cyberalex4lifewileee, the truth is that as much as I don't like window, sometimes you need it: like to update an android phone20:30

wileeecyberalex4life, Same here, I started on opensource anyway.20:30
AmozShed-34046, if you do the normal ubuntu install, GRUB will overwrite the Windows bootloader in MBR20:30

daftykinsdarrenlooby: which mirror is it trying to hit?21:50
wileeecihhan, Not a big deal, but is a different install slightly. I see 4 partitions, under a msdos that s the max primary partitions, you can have. It may be you have msdos partitions from the look with gpt remnants in the table, hard to tell at this point.21:50
darrenloobyHere's an example message: Err http://security.ubuntu.com quantal-security/restricted i386 Packages   404  Not Found [IP: 80] daftykins21:51
daftykinsdarrenlooby: well, quantal was 12.10 so that's a bad repo right there - if you're trying to upgrade, i reckon you've got it trying to go to 12.10 instead of 14.0421:52
cihhanwileee, i see. i would say that it should have at least show the drives in the installation page21:52
cihhanwileee, let me try to hard format it21:53
daftykinsdarrenlooby: i think you'll need to specify LTS only21:53
wileeecihhan, I don't think a full HD, with max partitions will show.21:53
darrenloobydaftykins: Well, currently, I'm just trying to do sudo apt-get update. No release upgrade just yet. So, I can't even go that far. Do I need to redirect my repo?21:53

cihhanwileee, btw, i just bought another ssd with nothing on it. and it didnt show it either :(21:54
wileeecihhan, You need a new table to hopefully remove the gpt, if that's the goal.21:54
wileeecihhan, no table on second will be a no show21:54

CraytorI have a question. Are y'all familiar with Ubuntu Server? (I'm assuming so)22:11

CraytorI do have a question. I'm currently working on a project, and I'm wondering if I could set up a VPS and use FFMPEG to stream the display.22:12
OneMattAh ha, found the partition.22:13
CraytorI have FFMPEG all set up, but when I do this, all the stream gets is a black screen. I think it has to do with it not having an actual monitor. I'm wondering if there would be a way to get this to work.22:13
OneMattMount does not want to mount a LVM2_member filesystem type though.22:14
bekksOneMatt: Because that not a mountable filesystem, but a container.22:14

bekksMount the LVM volume.22:15
OneMattI tried.22:15
OneMattsudo mount /dev/sdb2 /media/william/HDDPART222:15
Craytor^ that was my question bekks :P22:16
bekksOneMatt: You cannot mount a LVM physical volume. You need to activate the LVM volume group and mount the LVM volume.22:17

AnthaasI am being asked for the password to access my key when connecting through ssh with a public key?22:24
g2000Anthaas: That's normal behaviour22:26
AnthaasBeing asked for the password to the public key rather than just the password to connect seems a bit....redundant?22:27
AnthaasWhy bother with the public key if I wanted to enter the password?22:27
g2000Anthaas: yes, ssh is asking for your key password, not the server you are connected to.22:27
AnthaasYes - is there a way I can prevent the need?22:28
AnthaasSurely if there is a key on this computer, and a matching key on that computer, the need for a password is gone?22:28
bekksAnthaas: No. Since you can protect your key with a password.22:28
AnthaasOk, not gone, but knowing I am the only person on the 3 machines involved, and that the passwords and other access to them is secure, I can reduce the need.22:28
=== zipp0man is now known as zippoman
bekksAnthaas: Just generate keys without password protecting them, then.22:29
AnthaasI have another ssh connection with a password protected key, and I can still do it22:29
AnthaasI am wondering why not on this instance.22:29
Anthaasi.e. on one connection I can do ssh 'user@host'  and it connects, but on the second connection, it asks for a password22:30
AnthaasI am on computer A connecting to B, to connect to C. A -> B -> C22:30
AnthaasA -> B is fine, but B -> C is asking for a password22:31
mancomunadoAlready reinstalled firefox, but lightspark lib (yet removed) crashes YT-player and only by viewtube VLC is possible to watch videos. Is there any easy fix or should I use another browser?22:35
netnomadAny tips for constantly crashing Flash plugin in Firefox?  I know.  I know.  Flash sucks.  But I still need it, and I'd rather run Firefox than Chrome.22:36
wafflejockAnthaas, as already described the password is for the private key, if you don't use a password when making the private/public key pair then you won't be prompted for one when using that private key22:36
wafflejockAnthaas, the disadvantage here being if someone manages to get your private key they don't need a password to have access to your server22:37
AnthaasThere are numerous other things in place to prevent any unauthorised connection with my key22:37
bekksAnthaas: Name three :)22:37
wileeemancomunado, there is an on board minitube, just info. Is YT-player this app?22:38
g2000Anthaas: Maybe A -> B key is not password protected22:38

=== crazybluek is now known as Blueking
g2000Anthaas: I'd recommend to just generate another key without a password^^22:45
wafflejockSmokie, it's typically not a good idea to backup a live system since things on disk can be changing22:46
ipfaffySmokie: Not really.  DD is the best way to do that22:46
wafflejockSmokie, there are backup programs to backup your documents etc. built in but if you want a snapshot I personally just use clonezilla22:46
Smokieso its not like Windows?22:46
BlackDalekwileee, no driver for it is listed. There is driver here for linux http://onlinesupport.fujixerox.com/processDriverForm.do;jsessionid=13F1D9969494DF481B2132C5FD8AB4CB.worker4?ctry_code=NZ&lang_code=en&d_lang=en&corp_pid=APIIIC5500&rts=null&model=ApeosPort-III+C5500&type_id=2&oslist=GNU+%2F+Linux&lang_list=en but can't figure out how to install it.22:46
Smokiewafflejock, im trying to avoid turning it off while i need a backup22:46
wileeeBlackDalek, Have you checked printers?22:47
wafflejockSmokie, well what I said is true by default, there are more advanced filesystems like ZFS that can take live snapshots and really push that feature22:47
Smokiei mean to create a backup22:47
bprompt!clonezilla | Smokie22:47
Smokiebprompt, clonezille is a live cd22:47
wileeeBlackDalek, I assume you mean none listed in printers?22:47
impalle@Smokie, do u mean just copying the contents on the desktop?22:47
bpromptSmokie:     I'd get a clonezilla iso, run a liveusb session, and do it from there22:47
BlackDalekwileee, yes. It is not listed when you add new printer.22:47
wafflejockSmokie, you can use rsync to just backup all of your critical files (your home folder, your /etc your /var/log maybe) but in terms of a full snapshot the regular filesystem doesn't support it22:47
Smokieimpalle, no, i mean a full backup of the whole thing22:47
JRogersSmokie: its not like windows you can deploy your back up on another machine wioth out having to call ms for rearming22:47
BlackDalekwileee, not listed under fuji xerox nor under xerox list.22:48
SmokieJRogers, not to another "machine", to another HDD if needed22:48
JRogerswhat if the machine dies22:48
Smokiebprompt, im trying to not boot to a livecd every couple of days to create the backup22:48
bpromptSmokie:    because?22:49
wafflejockSmokie, your regular backups should just be of your critical files you would need to restore22:49
SmokieJRogers, im trying not to think of that heheh22:49
wafflejocklike JRogers indicated what if the system fails22:49
Smokiebprompt, for various reasons22:49
Smokiemainly cuz i have a LAMP running on it and its on 24/722:49
wafflejockSmokie, take a snapshot from the get go with Clonezilla once things are stable, then for your dailys just have it backup files you use22:49
wileeeBlackDalek, I see multiple manuals in the zip.22:49
wafflejocker dd whatever22:50
wafflejockclonezilla just makes it easier22:50
Smokiewafflejock, i assume that works for LAMP settings too?22:50
wileeeBlackDalek, Not an area I can confidently help otherwise, sorry about that.22:50
bekksSmokie: For "LAMP settings" just use rsync.22:50
bpromptSmokie:     likely none of them unworkable, as wafflejock  pointed out, safest way is to do it no when the partition or hdd is running processes and doing lots of i/o,  but when is idle and all you're doing is reading it22:50
Smokiewell.. the way you said it now might work for me wafflejock22:50
bekksSmokie: Export/dump your databases as well, done.22:51
wafflejockSmokie, works for me :)22:51
JRogerswafflej0ck_: what linux need is a way to backup all files to recreate the same environment after reinstall22:51
wafflejockJRogers, yeah would be nice22:51
Smokieso basically do full backup with clonezilla.. then daily backups of my critical data.. if i change any LAMP settings, like for apache or php, i just do another clonezilla backup when i can22:51
bekksJRogers: Those "ways" exist for decades.22:52
wafflejockhave seen hacks for how to save the programs you installed with apt-get but some sort of restore for that and config would be nice22:52

=== denbeiren is now known as zz_denbeiren
wafflejockSmokie, regarding lamp settings clonezilla will get everything if you just backup your /etc too you'll get all your program config22:52
bpromptSmokie:     note on using "dd", dd takes a full  raw snapshot, if your hdd is 250gbs and only 50gbs in use, dd will not do 50gbs only, is 250gbs or bust, whilst clonezilla will only take the used space, besides all other geometry data in the hdd or partition22:52

wafflejockGhhos7, you can, sudo killall nautilus, then sudo apt-get purge nautilus -s, if everything it just says its removing nautilus or nautilus and a few packages that depend on it you should be okay to not have a bunch of packages get removed on you again23:23

g2000OneMatt: Use "Exec=/your/path/to/java -jar %f"23:28
TJ-Any ideas why the Firefox chrome and content is being rendered abnormally large (even with new profile), as if the display DPI is low, whereas Chromium renders correctly (145 DPI, 1920x1200px) see http://imgur.com/x4yuvZb23:36
OneM_IndustriesSo, one router crash later.23:38
g2000TJ: tried safe mode?23:40
bewbzDo you guys trust this site for setting up my USB to boot from. http://www.pendrivelinux.com/testing-your-system-for-usb-boot-compatibility/23:41
bewbzI want to give this another shot23:41
Spiderwhy don't you use terminal command instead?23:43
TJ-g2000: Yes, tried everything I can think of. I suspect it's something to do with Firefox using the gtk-2 libraries/theme, but not been able to track down what might cause it. It only started when I moved the laptop from its usual position on the workbench where it usually drives 6 monitors over 3 GPUs, and I had something similar but that was when a display was rotated and the DPI calculated incorrectly. I've checked that and its fine.23:43
romualdoHi, I have 20gb ram, and my BIOS recognize it, but ubuntu just recognizes 11,2gb ram, someone can tell me how fix it ?23:44
artoisromualdo: what makes you think Ubuntu only recognizes 11,2?23:44
=== zz_denbeiren is now known as denbeiren
TJ-romualdo: can you "pastebinit <(sudo dmidecode)"23:45
romualdoartois: when i go to: About this computer, show only 11,2gb23:45
romualdoTJ-: ok, one moment23:45
neorpheushey does anyone know if there is a working solution to steam not working in 64 bit ubuntu with nvidia (non optimus) graphics23:46
AndroidHackercan u use the shred command on block devices... ie shred /dev/sdc23:47
artoisdoubt it, but you could try it23:48
artoisshred without -n 0 is a waste of time, though, FYI23:48
g2000neorpheus: What in detail is not working?23:48
AndroidHackerartois, i know -n but i just mean shred in general, regardless of options23:49
artoistry it and see23:49
AndroidHackerbut thanks23:49
neorpheusg2000, specifically, upon launching steam i am greeted with a window stating "OpenGL GLX extension is not supported byt the display"23:49
ziggySobotkaterminator vs screen?23:50
romualdoTJ-: pastebin.com/6wCyMsCv23:50
TJ-AndroidHacker: The best way to randomise a block device is do "cryptsetup LuksFormat /dev/sdX" then "cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdX blat" then "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mapper/blat" << (this step is very fast randomisation) ... then "cryptsetup luksClose blat" and wipe the LUKS header with "dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sdX bs=2M count=1"23:50
AndroidHackerill try it out.. thanks23:51
bewbzis this a safe site?23:52
neorpheusyes imo23:52
squintyyes well known23:52
squintywith lots of great info23:52
bewbzanyone here ever build a PC? I'm trying to rectify a horrible build with a 64 bit OS : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/66kV8d23:53
bewbzcurrently have windows 723:53
squintyziggySobotka,  by any chance do you mean "terminal" rather than terminator?23:53
ziggySobotkaI meant terminator23:54
ziggySobotkathe multiplexer23:54
neorpheusg2000, i can provide full system specs if nessecary23:54
g2000neorpheus: Sounds like a driver issue, are you using nouveau or closed-source nvidia drivers?23:54
TJ-romualdo: That looks as if you've got incompatible bank config, if you look at the address mapping of the first DIMM it overlaps the mapping of DIMMs 2 and 3... which together 8+4 = 12 GB which is what you're seeing23:55

OneM_Industriesg2000: so I have made a .desktop file, how do I use it?23:56
romualdoTJ-: The Range Size of one of the two 8gb slots appears 1kb23:57
romualdoTJ-: how can i fix this bank config ?23:57
neorpheusg2000, i am glad you asked about the drivers. i thought i had selected the proprietary drivers for my 2 cards. but apparantly i did not select them for my quadros which are the ones im trying to render steam on. i will select the proprietary drivers and reboot23:57
g2000OneM_Industries: Just copy it into ~/.local/share/applications/23:58
OneM_IndustriesDone. How do I use it?23:59
OneM_IndustriesActually, there is no .local folder...23:59
squintyhave you turned on hidden files?23:59
TJ-romualdo: It looks to be as if the mobo requires matched pairs, and you've only got 1 DIMM in the 1st bank23:59
OneM_IndustriesOh, found it.23:59
