OneM_IndustriesOk, so now how do I use that?00:01
TJ-romualdo: I suspect you've mixed up the DIMM slot numbers, and left the first slot empty and filled 3 other slots. Try mirroring the layout so the empty slot has one of the 8GB modules and the hext slot has the other 8GB, then the 4GB in the 3rd slot00:01
romualdoTJ-: but why on windows 8.1 this is not a problem ? (i matched the 8gb in the 2-channel slots, and the 4gb alone in the another 2-channel00:02
TJ-romualdo: That is strange... do you have any kernel command-line options that could be affecting the way the memory is mapped? check with "cat /proc/cmdline"00:03

g2000OneM_Industries: Just select the starter (=desktop-file) you just made as the default application for jar files.00:04
romualdoTJ-: this is a fresh install, just installed kvirc until now00:04
neorpheusg2000, thanks alot m8, i wouldnt have thought to look at which driver i was using again. all is well now00:05
TJ-romualdo: Well the DMI info provided by the BIOS is definitely incorrect as to the memory-mapping, so it looks like the BIOS has a bug and Linux isn't aware of it, but Windows drivers probably are00:06
OneM_IndustriesOdd, not seeing the .desktop file anywhere.00:06
g2000neorpheus: You're welcome!00:06
TJ-romualdo: do "sudo apt-get install pastebinit" and then "pastebinit /var/log/dmesg" please00:06

TJ-romualdo: Arggh, that's got systemd logging hasn't it. Hate it! No system text logs00:10
OneMattI am using Lubuntu, which does not use unity, as far as I know.00:10
barnexHey, could someone maybe explain what's going on in bmon? See screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/PF6zGu4.png00:11
romualdoTJ-: a friend said about something called PAE, that deals with large amount of memory, is not the case ?00:11
barnexWhat I don't understand is how p3p1 has no transfer (TX bps) yet it's child (? what it even is?) has some00:11
barnexAnd ifconfig doesn't know about the transfer in p3p1 apparently, it's always at 0.0B for p3p100:12
OneMattNot seeing it, g2000.00:12
barnexAnd the traffic isn't logged in any of the interfaces ;o00:12
TJ-romualdo: I'd hope you're using the 64-bit release (amd64) in which case it won't matter. check with "dpkg --print-architecture"00:13
romualdoTJ-: amd6400:14
TJ-romualdo: Good, so PAE doesn't enter into it that's only for allowing 32-bit systems to access more than 4GB00:14
g2000OneMatt: Oh sorry, i did not know that. But it should be the same directory for all ubuntu flavours.00:15
=== zz_denbeiren is now known as denbeiren
g2000OneMatt: could you paste the contents of your starter at http://paste.ubuntu.com and give me the link, please?00:16
OneMattI can type it into the chat, it is only one line.00:17
g2000OneMatt: Thats why it is not showing up00:17
g2000OneMatt: ill create the file for you (: give me a minute00:17
TJ-barnex: I believe what you're seeing is as expected with a true Ethernet device00:18
barnexTJ-: well, can I get transfer stats off of it somehow?00:18
TJ-barnex: I'm not sure; I would think there's some kind of config for bmon to isolate what you want00:22
barnexTJ-: yeah, probably. thanks.00:22
TJ-barnex: I see the same thing here with the physical Ethernet interfaces00:23
g2000OneMatt: http://paste.ubuntu.com/11996905/ this should do the trick.00:24
OneMattReplace %f with the file path?00:25
g2000OneMatt: Depends on how you want to use the file. Do you want a starter for your specific application or to open JAR files with java by clicking on them?00:27
=== denbeiren is now known as zz_denbeiren
TJ-barnex: looks like the extra info about the queue discipline comes from bmon defaulting to using the netlink input module. Try "sudo bmon --input=proc" that output might be more like what you want00:27
barnexTJ-: thanks00:27
OneMattAh, so keep it as %f to open all different types of java files?00:28
g2000OneMatt: Yes, this should work if you select the starter as the default application to open jar files.00:29
OneMattOdd, still not seeing it under the applications tab...00:31
romualdoTJ-: no idea how can i fix the memory issue so ?00:32
TJ-romualdo: without being able to see the boot dmesg log there's not way to know00:33
romualdoTJ-: and how i enable dmesg log ?00:33
TJ-romualdo: systemd has made the logs binary; you'll need to tell it to dump the dmesg log as text00:35
romualdoTJ-: and how i tell ?00:35

esr_thx anyway01:24
daftykinselisa87: Dell machines _definitely_ are F1201:24
daftykinselisa87: so unless this is a work or education machine where you don't have the right to install another OS, so it's locked down, it really should work.01:25
elisa87I have pressed f12 during the whole restart!!! it didn't work!!! it it driving me nuts daftykins01:25

daftykinsenterprise is only allowed for companies - sounds illegal to me01:26
elisa87I even tried the shut down and advanced setting in PC setting in recovery section. none worked. What did you mean daftykins01:26
elisa87Our department gives us the right to download the enterprise version of Windows8.1 for projects01:27
elisa87I have installed Windows8.1 enterprise in my other laptop in school which is for my other job. It is a Gigabyte notebook and by pressing F2 I can go to BIOS setting! daftykins01:27

daftykinselisa87: you installed 8 in legacy mode? o001:30
Rave1user is asking to boot a live USB freom what I read01:30
elisa87ok I missed that. so by pressing f12 repeatedly you mean I shouldn't put my finger off the f12 button, right?> just to make sure?01:31
tgm4883daftykins: I thought 8.1 required UEFI?01:31
elisa87daftykins: I have no idea what I did, I just burn the ISO into a dvd and followed the step! Literally not sure Microsoft has set up for me01:31
Rave1so if you cant boot win 8.1 in legacy how is it I installed on old machine pre UEFI01:32
daftykinstgm4883: newp01:32

elisa87I don't approve of my Windows knowlege! Back to Windows after quite a while due to some Intel and Microsoft hardwares!! that is all! haha01:33
daftykinselisa87: quite honestly F12 should give a boot menu on a Dell regardless, use F2 to enter the BIOS instead and have a look around - maybe F12 is disabled01:33

Shed-34046Is Ubuntu lighter on resources than windows 802:14

wafflejockShed-34046, well the minimum requirements of ubuntu are about half of that of windows 8 so you can gather what you will from that but they are different systems running different programs and ultimately it depends on those programs how demanding the system is overall on your resources, in my experience it seems faster but you would need to do benchmarking of various tasks to decide scientifically02:21

wileeefirmlyhypervisor, Ubuntu support is all, that is not even close. ;)03:22
firmlyhypervisor@Bocephus my first choice would be PGP for your encryption...last reply didn't make much sense.03:22
redrum187wileee: it said I did not have gksudo, so I ran "sudo apt-get install gksudo"03:23
wileeeRedRum sudo apt-get install gksu  than run gksudo03:24
firmlyhypervisor> wileee :-0 Sorry man, my keyboard has been up a long time.03:24
redrum187Is "sudo apt-get install gksudo" different than "sudo apt-get install gksu"?03:25
wileeeredrum187, gksu is the base for running gksudo basically, you could run gksu03:25
wileeeredrum187, the gk=graphic03:26
redrum187will gksudo and gksu install the same thing?03:26
wileeeredrum187, It is not the install choice this command is for but to call for a password, and run the file in a graphic shell.03:27
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)03:28
wileeeredrum187, Excellent questions, you want to understand, in the word of Martha Stewart "it is a good thing". ;)03:29
redrum187Thanks.  I worry too often I'm not asking the right questions.03:30
redrum187I ran cat /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness and it printed 1015, I thought the ranges were either 1-10 or 1-100?03:30
wileeeredrum187, It gets easier, here you will recognize the people here everyday if you lurk enough and know whom to follow to learn.03:31
wileeeredrum187, you don;t run it but put in the opened file and choose for 1-4 I believe for brightness default.  WE are really just testing if this will work, it can be removed no harm done, if not working.03:34
redrum187I just decided to run the command at lowest brightness and highest brightness.  When in doubt, do tests.  I determined my brightness range is from 78 to 7812.  Weird.03:34
wileeeredrum187, If this changes the default you will have to tweak it how you like by changing that X value03:35
SpeakFreely_Can someone help me. I'm trying to install ubuntu on a usb by running it in a VM. I use the command: "sudo qemu-system-x86_64 /dev/sdb ./Documents/ubuntu-15.04-desktop-amd64.so" and get "unable to mount root fs on unkownblock (0,0)"03:36
wileeeSpeakFreely_, Full install?03:37
SpeakFreely_wileee, What do you mean? I'm running this on my ubuntu laptop if that's what you're asking03:37
wileeeSpeakFreely_, Just can't follow the issue, and wondering why the vm is all.03:38
wileeeend goal maybe?03:39
SpeakFreely_wileee, Oh my end goal is to have a persitent version of ubuntu on a usb03:39
SpeakFreely_wileee, following this guide: http://askubuntu.com/questions/16988/how-do-i-install-ubuntu-to-a-usb-key-without-using-startup-disk-creator03:39
wileeeSpeakFreely_, easier done from any regular desktop, linux, ms or apple. That is a much harder road is all.03:40
SpeakFreely_wileee, care to point me to a tutorial? last one I tried left me with a live cd version instead of an actual instal03:41
wileeeSpeakFreely_, a iso with a persistence is not an actual install, it is still live.03:42
SpeakFreely_wileee, oh, well is there a way to do an actual install on a usb?03:42
wileeeactual install meaning from the live..etc03:42
wileeeSpeakFreely_, two media is all olne to boot and install to the other, which is a usb or HD.03:42
SpeakFreely_WildSoft, are you saying creating a live cd, boot from that and then install onto the usb?03:43
wileeeSpeakFreely_, actual install is way to vague here as well, two basic types, iso live, or full install.03:44
SpeakFreely_wileee, I guess full install in this case03:45
Ben64it will be horribly slow on a usb03:45
wileeeSpeakFreely_, Cool yeah a disk or usb boot of the live, or from your grub, and install to a usb.03:45
wileeevery slow yeah03:45
SpeakFreely_I'm just using it for mining a cryptocoin03:46
Ben64well, don't03:46
wileeeI would follow that advice myself03:46
wileeeI know the users skill level for one, and the issue as well.03:47
Ben64there probably is a livecd that already can do that, running a full install from usb will be very slow03:47
SpeakFreely_Would a livecd be faster or are they both slow in this case?03:48
Ben64livecd is faster03:48
SpeakFreely_Would you recommend any tutorials for livecd with persistence?03:49
ubottuFor information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent03:49
SpeakFreely_does usb-creator-gtk usually take awhile? seems to be hanging on 49%03:55
cfhowlettSpeakFreely_, normal.  be patient03:55
cfhowlettSpeakFreely_, it could do a better job of reporting feedback so it doesn't appear stuck03:56
SpeakFreely_Cool thanks, just wanted to restart it if it was messed up03:57
wileeeSpeakFreely_, building the persistent takes a little time, especially if the full 4gigs.03:59
SpeakFreely_wileee, I made it 1 GB, going to try the resizing trick it talks about03:59
wileeeSpeakFreely_, not sure what would be resized, How big is the usb?04:00
SpeakFreely_wileee, 32 GB04:00
wileeeSpeakFreely_, the casper-rw file resized?04:00
SpeakFreely_wileee,  yes04:01
antiPoPHi, currently I'm using xrdp to copnnect  to a ubuntu computer. It works almost well, but I can't get fixed the keyboard layout issues even after following some tutorials. I have seem some vnc tutorials but they look a mess to setup. Is there some other alternative to remote connection?04:01
wileeeSpeakFreely_, YOu can make a casper-rw partition and use all the usb if you want.04:01
SpeakFreely_wileee, I'll prolly just make it 8 GB04:04
wileeeSpeakFreely_, Never heard of resizing the file, sounds like a really bad idea, but that is an opinion, Be careful and remember that casper-rw is not really easily accessible off the live and all your persistence, if damaged or removed it is all gone.04:06

friendlylaptop1Hi there, I'm looking to find out what the DE is on trusty tahr?04:07
cfhowlettfriendlylaptop1, ubuntu = unity04:08
cfhowlett!flavors | friendlylaptop104:08
ubottufriendlylaptop1: !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.04:08
friendlylaptop1i think it is gnome 2, but I could be wrong. also, where do I find a list of distro's with the DE's?04:08
friendlylaptop1nice, thx04:08
friendlylaptop1so would ubuntu always be unity then?04:09
wileeeSpeakFreely_, I'm not a big fan of this, but it is either a casper file in the OS or a partition. If you have a partitioned casper, you only need a partition just slightly bigger than the iso, as nothing is saved there.04:09
wileeeI would run light, lxde or lubuntu or openbox as lighter.04:09
friendlylaptop1cfhowlett, when I had mint, I was using lxde, right? What would be the benefit of switching to gnome?04:10
cfhowlettfriendlylaptop1, allow me to hijack your question: I'm interested in other DE's.  How can I test them easily?  simple04:11
SpeakFreely_wileee, I see. Hope this works, last time I tried this method it said there was not enough space when I tried updating04:11
friendlylaptop1yes, that's EXACTLY what i want to know....:)04:12
cfhowlettfriendlylaptop1, sudo apt-get install lxde xfce4 kde-plasma-desktop gnome04:12
cfhowlettfriendlylaptop1, then: logout/choose an alternate DE/login      and test to your heart's delight04:12
friendlylaptop1cfhowlett, will i still be able to switch back to unity?04:12
friendlylaptop1cfhowlett, great, thank you sooooo much!!!04:12
cfhowlettfriendlylaptop1, happy to help.04:12
wileeeSpeakFreely_, That is another issue, you don't have the updates like normal, you will miss security updates likely, it is not really designed to be taking all upgrades. Still just the iso but now with an upgrade script.04:13
bigbossiewhat's up all?04:13
wileeeSpeakFreely_, I would run a light vm if it were me.04:13
SpeakFreely_wileee, will I be able to install gfx card drivers?04:14
wileeeSpeakFreely_, probably, kernels are an issue as I remember. I'm not up on every limitation is all, it can be unstable if messed with enough.04:14
SpeakFreely_wileee, alright, well thanks for all the help :)04:15
wileeeSpeakFreely_, You need to travel with this stick?04:15

=== gerald is now known as Guest98436
SpeakFreely_wileee, Nah I just don't feel like dual booting with my windows comp, which is where my gfx card is04:17
wileeeSpeakFreely_, Use a vm, you can run both.04:18
SpeakFreely_wileee, VMs don't degrade access to a gfx card?04:19
wileeeSpeakFreely_, virtualbox has it's own drivers you will give up ram and some cpu04:20
SpeakFreely_wileee, can it access the full amount of RAM on the card though?04:21
=== khaldrogoxl is now known as khaldrogox
wileeeSpeakFreely_,  You split ram off for it, a really light vn a gig will probably do it, not sure though with what you will run.04:22
SpeakFreely_wileee, are you talking about regular RAM or the gfx card's memory?04:22
friendlylaptop1cfhowlett, so I installed them, but now it is asking me to specify a default display manager, with these options: gdm, kdm, or lightdm. which is the one least likely to cause me problems?04:23
friendlylaptop1please and thank you :)04:23
wileeeSpeakFreely_, regular ram, your graphics card will ot be used in virtualbox, they have drivers.04:23
cfhowlettfriendlylaptop1, kdm = kde, gdm = gnome and lightdm for everything else04:23
SpeakFreely_wileee, Okay thank you04:23
friendlylaptop1cfhowlett, ok thanks that's great.04:24
wileeeSpeakFreely_, No problem, just mess around till your happy.04:24
friendlylaptop1cfhowlett, you don't happen to know which distro comes with gnome do you?04:24
doctorlyWhat is the best website for writing tutorials? Like, something that is popular and has really good markdown.04:24
cfhowlett!gnome | friendlylaptop104:24
ubottufriendlylaptop1: GNOME was the default desktop environment on Ubuntu up to 10.10. To install the GNOME Shell, type [ sudo apt-get install gnome-shell ] in a !terminal. For the GNOME-based !flavor of Ubuntu, see !ubuntu-gnome04:24
SpeakFreely_wileee, will do :D wish there weren't 2-3 programs holding me back from switching to linux for good04:25
friendlylaptop1sweet. thx04:25
cfhowlettdoctorly, I believe you'll find wiki is the default here04:25
wileeeSpeakFreely_, most of us dualboot, or at least some, may be linux multiboots, apple, ms.04:25
doctorlycfhowlett: which wiki? Like is there a specific website? Or do you mean the ubuntu wiki?04:26
cfhowlettdoctorly, right. ubuntu wiki type seems to be the standard04:26
SpeakFreely_wileee, hmm maybe I'll have to give dual booting another go. Last time I did it somehow OSs ended up getting corrupted04:27
wileeeSpeakFreely_, Easier to corrupt windows in that scenario, generally not resizing or having the fast boot in a uefi, not so often with ubuntu or linux. Anything is possible though.04:28
wileeeresizing correctly*04:28
cfhowlettdoctorly, I did a bit of digging.  "moinmoin" wiki might be the clue you seek. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MoinMoin04:29
SpeakFreely_Yeah I believe it was windows that corrupted. Again wish these few programs weren't holding me back lol04:29
wileeeSpeakFreely_, Do what you need to do, I have windows for word basically, got it all cheap from academic, really cheap lol.04:30
SpeakFreely_wileee, I'm pretty much only keeping it for gaming and taking notes lol, can't find a note-taking app on *nix that isn't shit04:30
doctorlycfhowlett: Actually both answers don't really do what I need. I need wiki type formating, but somewhere I can easily submit a guide. Can I post a guide on the Ubuntu wiki...?04:31
cfhowlettdoctorly, yes you can post a guide on ubuntu04:32
antiPoPI have an  radeon xpress 1100 IGP and teh driver fails to load in 15.04. has somebody the same issue?04:34

wileeepikawubz, look at man xrandr in  the terminal.05:25
wileeerun just xrandr as a refrence as well05:25

pikawubzwhich is 1920x1080 btw05:28
pikawubzthe main reason im trying to do this is because i want to fix screen tear05:32
wafflejockpikawubz, I kind of feel that's not likely to fix screen tear, screen tear happens cause the video buffer isn't fully updated when the screen redraws, there are a few sync technologies I've heard of pretty recently to fix the issue but I doubt changing refresh rate will help much05:38

darkangelHello i was just wondering in Ubuntu is it possible to limit a folder gb or mb size with a C++ file like quota can?06:11
parapanhi fellows, I need some help with a booting issue ..06:13
parapancan somebody competent support ?06:13
badbodh^ that's insulting. incompetent like me can support too.06:13
badbodhjust ask and wait.06:13
parapanbadbodh: :)) pls don't take it that way .....I have a messy situation with a 3 system boot ....Win 7, win XP and Ubuntu 12.04 . . .06:16
badbodhbeen there, done that. what's the issue ?06:17
parapanit seems that mount points are all over the 3 HDD's I have; XP mount is in sdb1 ( and is reported to be full - causing problem when booting - missing NTLDR error ); w7 is mounted into sdc1, ubuntu 12.04 - I don't know now ...06:18
badbodhparapan, xp does have a nasty habit of placing ntldr in another partition other than C drive. if you installed win7 after it, that probably removed ntldr/boot.ini etc files.06:21
parapanproblem is: when starting the PC I get the NTLDR missing error; I have to manually press F8, choose the second HDD to make it boot to W7; it seems that HDD2 is on SATA 1 on my PC; when booting to W7 I get the grub loader . . but when trying to boot ubuntu 12.04 I get the comman line . .06:21
parapanand the error that HDD uuid is missing ...06:21
parapanbadbodh: You're the man; that was exactly the issue06:22
badbodhbut it appears your issue is more than that. you got bootloaders of three os-s in three diff hard drives. at a time you can boot to only one of them.06:23
parapanbadbodh: Now I have this crazy ideea that I can fix the booting issue with linux/ubuntu ...already booted from USB installed the boot-recovery .. but get the error ob sdb1 (win XP) being full partition and that will create problem when booting; even if I repair the boot, the next reboot ends up with the same NTLDR issue . .06:24
omkar_what is the standard way of installing nvidia drivers on ubuntu 14.0406:24
omkar_is it through the nvidia site or ubuntu has customized driver like fedora has06:24
badbodhomkar_, open software sources, go to the last tab. it lists all third party drivers available.06:25
parapanbadbodh: exactly . . .that's why I said the "competent" thing . . I already tried the usual stuff and didn't worked ...so I think the boot file must be edited manually in order to have a proper fix . .  .06:25
badbodhparapan, you need to solve boot record of each hard drive/os one by one. starting with xp.06:25
badbodhwhat makes you think 'install ubuntu' will fix boot issue ? that's not how any of this works.06:26
parapanbadbodh: I do not need XP anymore ...can I get rid of him ?06:26
badbodhyes you just have to format that partition. as for the boot loader removal/recovery i'll need more info.06:26
badbodhif you have ubuntu live usb, boot to that and we can start from there.06:27
parapanbadbodh: didn't installed ...made the try ubuntu, than added the ppa for boot-repair ...and tried to fix -it this way ...that's because it worked before06:27
badbodhlive usb/cd/anything06:27
badbodhno man, you don't use "apps" to solve boot issues without knowing what caused the issue.06:27
badbodhfact that you have three diff hard drives only complicates it further06:28
badbodhfor now, boot into live and come join this chat.06:28
parapanbadbodh: correct :D and the drives are the same type =))06:28

gartralok all, mild emergency... I have a studio system running 14.04 and it's updating, thghe problem is it's trying to install a lot of old kernals and /boot is running out of space... how do I make it unly install the most up to date kernal and keep the currently running one?06:43
badbodhgartral, open synaptic or software center, search for "linux image generic" see what comes up. remove older versions.06:44
wileeegartral, Never seen but one kernel set at a time, the studio release has low latency.06:44
badbodhsorry just "linux image" not generic06:45
gartralbadbodh: problem with that is every other kernal is failing to install cleanly and synaptic is being retarded and not remove the broken packages06:45

gartralwileee: /boot only has 228 MB, set by the installer06:45

badbodhsorry gartral , can't get bacon without pigs06:53
gartralagent_white: I can not, as this machine has no cd/dvd rom, and the only two USB ports are used by the keyboard and mouse06:53
badbodhparapan, in your bios check your boot device order. whichever is on top will be booted first. if it has grub, grub comes first.06:54
gartralalright, i'll go through the HARD way, uninstalling all kernals except the running one and re-install the newest06:55

gartralbadbodh: yes, I have internet on this machine06:58
badbodhdo you have pen drive ?06:58
gartralagent_white: i think your command syntax is off "E: Command line option --purge is not understood"06:59
gartralbadbodh: I do, but no free USB ports06:59
parapanbadbodh: anyway, plugged the USB, booting ... on my way to 12.04.live ......06:59
badbodhgartral, then remove your keyboard, boot to live. do the things. ubuntu has onscreen keyboard, use that.07:00
badbodhwhere there is will , there is way. stop assuming we are too stupid to solve your issue.07:01
parapan2badbodh: on the troubled PC bad(dog); waiting instruction; over :D07:01
agent_whitegartral: Woops! My bad. I believe it's just `apt-get autoremove`.07:01
badbodhgartral, have you run apt-get commands i gave you? have you removed older kernels ? do something man.07:02
badbodhparapan2, yeah man, you on live ?07:03

badbodhparapan2, open terminal, run "lsblk" "sudo blkid". paste the results on pastebin. then open gparted from dash. take a screenshot of your partitions. share that on postimage.org07:05
agent_whitegartral: If you're removing old kernels... just BE SURE not to remove the one you're using :P07:05
badbodhnot sure if you can remove the one your are using, you know, since you are using it :D07:06
wileeeyes you can07:06
agent_whiteYou can. After a reboot it will be very apparent you did so :P07:06
agent_whiteJust like rmrfing a system while in use.07:06
wileeeeasily fixed like this problem is07:07
agent_whitegartral: But, as badbodh said, really the best solution is to just remove your mouse (you don't need it to run a live-cd and resize), and plug in a usb with a live image on it to do the resizing.07:07
badbodhhey hey, i said keyboard :P07:08
agent_whiteWell... take your pick I spose! Haha!07:08

badbodhwell, i'm not judging. you like ugly things like twm. no problemo.07:11
agent_whiteHeheh I do! All I got going for me is adding transparency to my terminals so I can see my background :P07:12

spagetti, im runng the software updater and i keep getting a message "Please enter passphrase for disk ubuntu--mate--vg-swap_1 (cryptswap1) on none!" seeing as i never set up a password for my swap partition i press enter and continue on only to be prompted again... and again.. and again..07:17

badbodhparapan2, ok i see a 'boot' partition on sda1, what does that contain ?07:20
parapan2badbodh: hell knows !07:20
badbodhgot to know man, if there's a boot flag can't ignore it.07:21
wileeebadbodh, same as the boot folder in your root07:21
parapan2badbodh: aaaa ..wait a sec ...now the sda is basically the second HDD ...let me look07:21
badbodhopen that drive and see the contents. there are 3 'boot' flagged partitions overall, each containing one os.07:21

wileeebadbodh, Ah, my mistake, sorry about that.07:23
wileeethanks I will loook07:23
badbodhx4w31, it means some one is trying to stalk you, check your ip and stuff07:24
parapan2badbodh: So, sda1 is nothing . . I guess . . .it's labeled test area and it's basically a storage space or smth where I test some ftp servers . . .07:24
badbodhthen why the boogers is it a 'boot' ? you need to be more careful with your partitioning07:24
parapan2badbodh: where else are the boot flags ?07:24
parapan2badbodh: sdc is the one that counts . . here I have the W7 and the Ubuntu stored . . .07:25
badbodhparapan2, what's on sdb1 ? it's a 'boot' too07:26
parapan2badbodh: sdc1 is the W7 install . . .and the Ubuntu 12.04 too . .07:26
parapan2badbodh: it's a storage HDD . .. ntfs format only movies ...07:27
badbodhwhere was your xp parition ?07:27
wileeebadbodh, So if sdc is read first no boot?07:27
parapan2badbodh: don;t have a clue now ..w7 I've installed on the older XP partition, overwritting everything ...07:28
wileeeparapan, ^^^ you to07:28
parapan2XP doesn't exist anymore ...only the boot of him, taken on the grub ...07:28
parapan2wileee: nice joke, If I knew, I will be outside paying :D07:29
badbodhok parapan2 . do you have windows 7 dvd ?07:29

wileeeparapan, Not a joke.07:29

badbodhany install media for win7 ?07:29
badbodhyou need to use 'recovery mode'07:29

parapan2badbodh: Can't we fix the grub only ? by removing the XP from boot ? and fixing the start of 12.04 ?07:31
wileeeparapan2, Download supergrub boot 12.04 and then you have an easy fix.07:31
badbodhno wileee , apps won't help him. too messy to begin with.07:32
wileeebadbodh, It is not an app install, it iks a tiny boot iso07:32
wileeelooks pretty straight forward really, yes it's a mess, any way best of luck07:33
parapan2badbodh: so you think I should fix w7 anyway ?07:33
badbodhparapan2, was your xp in sdc1 before overwriting it with win7 ?07:33
parapan2badbodh: maybe making a bootable USB ?07:33
parapan2badbodh: exactly on the same place ..I've installed 7 over the XP partition C:\07:34
badbodhand in your bios you have chosen sdc as the first choice to boot ?07:34
gartralok, got the kernal problem solved, not I got another issue... VLC won't play DVDs07:36

gartralagent_white: the "Top Menu" loads and I can't click on "Play Movie"07:40
wileeeparapan2, Run sudo blkid identify sdc07:42
badbodhparapan2, ok let me lay this out if you, try to figure it out yourself. 1) if your sdc1 has windows7, it should be 'boot' flagged. in your screenshot it isn't. that's one anomaly. 2) your sda and sdb has a 'boot' flagged partition each, hard to tell which one has residual xp boot files. 3) using gparted see if you can remove the 'boot' flags in sda and sdb without formatting. it shouldbe possible, i haven't done that yet. 4) using windows 7 install07:42
badbodhdvd, go to recovery mode and restore win7's mbr. in dos run "bootrec.exe/fixboot" "bootrec.exe/fixmbr" "bootrec.exe/fixboot" again and reboot. you have lost your grub now. 4)boot to ubuntu live, install grub in sdc "sudo grub-install /dev/sdc" (verify if that command is correct in ubuntu's wiki)07:42
badbodhwell that's some info to begin with. happy troubleshooting.07:43
wileeethat command is correct badbodh same thing I was trying to do07:43
badbodhbtw after step (3) remove other hard drives from their ports before booting07:44
gartralbadbodh: how drunk are you?07:44
badbodhgartral, you got some ideas ?07:45
badbodhwileee, actually his windows xp residue is interfering. unless he fixes that grub will keep thinking xp is there.07:46
gartralbadbodh: the only two ideas I have are either 1) you're drunk. Or 2) you're an idiot...07:46
parapan2wileee: it gives me no info ....07:46
badbodhhis partitioning is messed up to begin with anyway07:46
wileeebadbodh, probably, the bootscript would tell you, makes sense, only boot flag need, you are correct overall. ;)07:47
wileeeonly one boot flag*07:47
badbodhwell i'll take your word for it. i haven't dealt with bootscript so can't say.07:48
wileeebadbodh, I just use supergrub to get in rather than a chroot07:48
parapan2badbodh: it seems I can manage flags with gparted . .I assume I can place them again if smth is wrong . .07:49
parapan2wileee: that command of yours it gives me no output ..07:50
badbodhparapan2, no need. better use your win7 and ubuntu dvd's for proper flogging07:50

ubottuethMiner,: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo09:28

badbodhyes, but don't09:30
k1lethMiner: you dont run the desktop as root09:30
ethMinerim not even running x on root09:30
ethMineri just want it to execute the 3 commands it supposed to09:30

k1lethMiner: you could make it autologin into a user and start the desktop. and then make a script autostart09:30
k1lethMiner: what commands are we talking about?09:31
badbodhbujji, just play with lsusb, lsblk and xinput. for wifi dongles use ifconfig, iwconfig. caution advised :)09:31

k1lethMiner: so you dont need a desktop. put that script with the commands into rc.local and go09:32

BlackDalekDoes anyone here have any experience with getting a Fuji Xerox printer working in Ubuntu? (It is not listed in the printer settings but a linux driver DOES exist on the manufacturer's website).09:58
badbodhthen you should install the driver. unless the driver is very old and throws up 'dependency not satisfied' error, you are goo to go BlackDalek10:00
BlackDalekbadbodh, it's not that simple. Running the installer as per the instructions throws up errors. The only other place that has drivers has it available as an RPM package. I can't use that because Alien can't convert it to a DEB package because the RPM is fr 32bit and my Ubuntu OS is 64bit.10:07
badbodhthat means your printer isn't supported for ubuntu.10:07
badbodhunless you can grab the source code and compile one yourself, you need to look for some inefficient generic printer drivers online10:08

zeorinHi all, I'm having a problem suddenly where I cannot log in graphically. Ubuntu 15.04. Lightdm seems to start just fine. .xession-errors tells me that upstart couldn't spawn upstart-udev-bridge. Yet my system uses systemd...10:40
zeorinI'm stumped10:40
zeorinThe behaviour I'm getting is that the login prompt and the 'dots' on the background disappear and then the process stops. It's not frozen, but it doesn't continue...10:43
BlackDalekbadbodh, I don't see the printer name listed anywhere in printer settings still. I would not be able to test it tonight anyway as I am at home and printer is at work.10:44

zeorinDoes anyone have any idea of where I should be asking this? I feel like I'm talking out to the ether where no one can hear me scream :-)11:33
badbodhmaybe the upstart remains for compatibility purpose. if you run upstart and sysvinit things, they get piped to systemd11:33
badbodhthen systemd does the rest11:34
ioriaas far as i know the transition to systemd it's not completed yet...11:34
zeorinOK. I don't event know what the real problem is yet because I'm not sure which error relates to what11:35
ioriawe would say that is "hybrid"11:36
zeorinBasically, I can't login to the desktop. No error messages, after entering my password the login prompt and the 'dots' just disappear, and then the process stops (although the mouse is still responsive and I can access the vtty's)11:36
badbodhnot really, systemd does everything. all upstart commands get sent/translated to systemd.11:36
zeorinChoosing a different session (e.g. Xfce instead of Unity), makes no difference.11:37
ioriazeorin, and you think is related to systemd ?11:37
zeorinI have no idea what it's related to... It was working fine, and after a reboot it was not11:38
zeorinNo packages were updated since the last reboot11:38
badbodhzeorin, what were yuou doing prior to this problem.11:38
zeorinI was configuring my zsh startup scripts11:38
zeorinSpecifically, editing /etc/zsh/zshenv11:38
zeorinWhich ought to have absolutely no bearing on this problem... but there you have it11:39
badbodhthere you go. that's something. startup-scripts = not startup :D11:39
ioriazeorin, check .profile11:39
badbodhremove zsh from tty shell and reboot11:39

zeorinIf I remove it and restart lightdm it's just recreated11:44
zeorinyeah sorry that's what I meant to type11:45
ioriazeorin,  .ICEauthority , the same ?11:45
zeorinI've been bitten by the .Xauthority file being owned by root a couple of times. Yup .ICEauthority is the same11:46
badbodhjust chown the damn home folder and get over it :D11:46
zeorinbadbodh: I was installing Nvidia CUDA before the zsh thing, but I had many restarts after I had installed it without issue11:48
badbodhso it boils down to zsh thing. apt-get purge and check. you can always install again. deb files will still be cached in /var/vache11:49
badbodhyou can 'cat ~/.xsession-errors' and see any error messages11:50
zeorinseems strange that it would be zsh... All I was doing was configuring the PATH env variable. As far as I know the only time Unity cares about what's in my zsh startup files is when I launch a virtual terminal11:51
zeorinanyway will try a reboot11:51
ioriazeorin,  and run  ls -al /home/user ... maybe something else owned by root11:51
badbodhtouch -R will also indicate root ownership, with less ouput :311:52

madonna_1hey guys, which is the best VPN app for ubuntu ???12:21
zeorinioria, badbodh: so the issue was that the PATH wasn't set correctly in /etc/environment. It had escaped me that I had commented a line out there because I'd read that the preferred way to set environments is in /etc/login.defs, and that /etc/environment is supposed to be deprecated.12:22
zeorinGuess what I read was wrong :-(12:22
rorymadonna_1: Ubuntu comes with VPN support built into the network manager12:22

badbodhzeorin, so it was you. which makes it even worse.12:23
badbodhyou owe us apology12:23
badbodhlinux doesn't stop working by itself (except arch) , it's always something you do that's to be blamed.12:24
rorymadonna_1: Ubuntu comes with support for PPTP type VPNs out of the box. You can install openvpn support within network manager by installing the "network-manager-openvpn" package, and logging out and in12:24
madonna_1rory : tanqqqqqqqqqqqqq. ;-)12:25

daftykinsi thought you said you did that already15:13
daftykinsGiwrgaras: i'm waiting for "lspci | pastebinit"15:13
Giwrgarasdaftykins: what is that?15:13
daftykinsa command to run to show your hardware15:14
daftykinsi typed it ages ago and asked you to run it, but you still haven't15:14
k1l_Giwrgaras: you said the wifi card did work already and you bought a new router?15:15
Giwrgarask1l_: i just bought it the wifi15:21
k1l_Giwrgaras: router or wifi card?15:22
Giwrgaraswifi router15:23

k1l_Giwrgaras: is it running? is it seen by other laptops, smartphones?15:24
Giwrgarasit cant see anything15:25
Giwrgarasor i cant see it on the upper corner15:26
daftykins"lspci | pastebinit"15:26
k1l_Giwrgaras: please make sure to not make such short and confusing answers. "yes", "no", "i cant see it"... so you got a new router and the old wifi card on that ubuntu 12.04 cant see it?15:27
k1l_Giwrgaras: so is the router sending on a frequency the old wifi card doesnt work with? please make sure tha hardware is alright15:27
Giwrgarasno i just cant see it15:29
Giwrgaraslike it doesnt exist15:29
Giwrgarasi tried the pastbinit15:29
Giwrgarasbut i dont have the prog and cant install it15:29
daftykinswhy can't you install it?15:29

I'm attempting to set up a proxy server using Squid3 using these steps: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/Proxy - I'm fairly certain I was successful in this as I'm able to configure my network settings on my MAC to use it. However, I'm trying to configure another Ubuntu server to use it to no avail. I have the following in my /etc/environment: http://pastebin.com/R12E8Wtu - I try doing various network activities on the second serve15:34

OerHeksF6F7, all i know is that hybernate does not work on encrypted drives, the code cannot be read from encrypted swap.15:35
OerHeksmaybe i am wrong ..15:35
F6F7OerHeks: alright, thanks for letting me know15:35
daftykinsGiwrgaras: i linked you to the site where to paste it...15:35
F6F7however, on a debian laptop i can always wake it up from hibernation despite full disk encryption15:35
F6F7so maybe it is indeed graphics driver related. is there a wayto find out?15:36
F6F7i have a nvidia gpu15:36
daftykinsGiwrgaras: is the wifi device a USB dongle plugged in?15:37

hfpHi all, I have a MacBookPro5,3 (mid-2009, core2duo, nvidia 9400+9600m gt) and I can't get any Ubuntu LiveCDs to boot. I get into the bootloader, choose Try Ubuntu or Install Ubuntu (tried both, same outcome). Ubuntu starts to load, I see the Ubuntu screen and it eventually hangs. The only way to get out of it is to reset the computer. What am I doing wrong? Is there an issue with this particular laptop/gfx car15:38
hfpd? I tried several Ubuntu versions, derivatives and ...15:38
hfp... ISOs: always the same issue.15:38
daftykinshfp: is the disk blank or do you have an OS X on there?15:38
B-Maxnevermind my previous question...bad test15:38
daftykinshfp: i don't think it likes seeing both cards.15:39
Giwrgarasthats the new one15:39
OerHeksF6F7, intel microcode is for intel CPU' s, nothing to do ith nvidia .. for your previous Q: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnableHibernateWithEncryptedSwap15:39
Giwrgarasi cant see it and ive upgraded my dist15:39
daftykinsGiwrgaras: they're identical and show no wireless card15:39
daftykinsGiwrgaras: try "lsusb"15:39
hfpdaftykins: I have OS X installed. There is no way to turn off one card, it's one of those systems where you can switch between integrated for battery power or discrete for intensive applications. When I was running Windows, it could only every see the discrete card and I couldn't switch between integrated and discrete. As far as Win was concerned, there was only one gfx card in this system15:40
F6F7OerHeks: thanks for the link15:40
daftykinshfp: not turn off, you need to boot with nomodeset i think15:40

AmozRamzi, just make sure you have all dependencies etc.15:52
Amozit would certainly help if you could tell us what package you're referring to15:53
RamziHow can I include all of the dependencies?  Like can I just copy a particular directory from a system that has them and put them in the same dir on the other system?15:53
fenecois there anyway to make ubuntu display the whole <select> in pages like os x?15:53
OerHeks!offline | Ramzi for dependencies., you didn't mention it, use this method:15:54
ubottuRamzi for dependencies., you didn't mention it, use this method:: If you need to download Ubuntu packages using another machine or OS, check the desired packages in Synaptic and select File > Generate package download script. See also !APTonCD15:54
MonkeyDustfeneco  select from what and display where?15:54
fenecoMonkeyDust from webpages, on browsers. on ubuntu and windows, when the <select> is too big, it shows just some options, while on osx, it shows a big list of options15:55
Ramziit sounds like that method may require an internet connection... what if the box is offline, i.e. I want to just copy all of the packages from one system to another via USB stick...15:55
feneconot sure if you get what i mean15:56
MonkeyDustfeneco  what is the <select> exactly?15:56
RamziI know it's easy if there's just one or two packages, I can just install the dpkg file, but how can I accommodate the dependencies, is there a location where dpkg will look to find these first?15:56
RamziLike in FreeBSD I can place dependencies in a directory and when installing it will check there before trying to go online to download them...15:56
daftykinsfeneco: yep no idea what you mean15:57

fenecoMonkeyDust the thing is, on ubuntu it doesnt show like that16:00
fenecoits not about the html tag i guess16:00

TJ-Finally discovered why Firefox is rendering its interface with oversized elements as this shows: http://imgur.com/x4yuvZb    It has suddenly decided it's using a high-DPI display (display hasn't changed). The fix is to change the user preference "layout.css.devPixelsPerPx" to "1.0" scaling rather than the default "-1.0" which allows Firefox to alter the scaling factor.16:46

austinprog<bomberman> WIndows 10?16:52
TJ-austin: If the current Ubuntu install is using LVM then you could over-write the start of the Windows partition file-system to stop tools seeing it, then add that partition as a LVM Physical Volume to the existing Ubuntu Volume Group, and then assign the space as you require for Ubuntu. Also, after wiping out Windows do "update-grub" so it is removed from GRUB's menu (os-prober will no longer find it)16:53

daftykinsi think that's the point made, yeah17:04
Black_StarI don't speak english :( :(17:05
bomberman<daftykins> So i don't need that installation?17:05
Black_Stari speak italian17:05
daftykinsBlack_Star: what do you speak?17:05
ubottuVai su #ubuntu-it se vuoi parlare in italiano, in questo canale usiamo solo l'inglese. Grazie! (per entrare, scrivi « /join #ubuntu-it » senza virgolette)17:05
daftykinsmight be someone there, Black_Star17:05
daftykinsbomberman: no, you don't need CPU drivers - that's not a thing :)17:05
daftykinsnot on any OS o017:05
Exagone313Hello, is there a dns server that uses root servers which allow fixed address for a specific subnet? I want my users through my VPN (192.168.42/24) to have my domain names resolved to and the connections out of the VPN to have the correct IP address. Also I have thousands of domains to set to for all users. Actually I use dnsmasq, no root server, and only for the VPN (and the server itself). Thanks for helping.17:05
bomberman<Amoz> fglrx that is command ?17:06
Amozbomberman, what exactly are you trying to do? I suppose you want the GPU module, no?17:06
daftykinsbomberman: no fglrx is the name of the AMD graphics driver module17:07
daftykinsAmoz: nope re-read :)17:07
daftykinsbomberman was just after a non-existant thing, all is well17:07
bomberman<daftykins> Ok, i got it , thx for helping17:07
Amozdaftykins, he probably is after *something*, it's just that his tech-abilities confused him ;)17:08
daftykinsAmoz: yeah but it was clear to me *shrug* :)17:08

delta9sorry for caps17:10
shamuraiDelta9, you could edit your /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades file but probably not suggested.17:12
OerHeksdelta9, open dash: software & updates, and see 3th tab updates "download and install immediatly'17:12
shamuraiDelta9, heres a link with more info. https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/automatic-updates.html17:12
delta9OerHeks, thanks17:14

OerHeksshamurai, yes17:16
lordievaderx4w3: Do you see anything in the systemlog when you plug it in?17:17
shamuraiI guess I thought delta9 was asking for all updates17:17
OerHeksSharkMa-san, there is no such option, i wish there is, with the optional dist-upgrade too17:18

x4w3lordievader: nothing strange http://paste.ubuntu.com/12001373/17:20
JayBaumy laptop have this switchable graphics, it has Intel and NVidia, but in the software updates, I can only see NVdia and everytime I chose a proprietary driver for it and try to adjust the brightness, it will go very deem and won't be able to adjust it back. so I am using the default driver instead.17:21
bitwigglerwonder where apt keeps getting it on a fresh install. perhaps 12.04 is no longer supported?17:21
daftykinsJayBau: nvidia will install fine with nvidia-prime, which version of ubuntu is this?17:21
JayBauI am using 14.04 LTS17:21
daftykinsJayBau: standard unity desktop?17:21
JayBauthis is what I have in lspci17:21
daftykinsdon't paste D:17:22
JayBauyes, standard, nothing changed or customized17:22
OerHeksOh, 12.40 is not EOL yet, my bad17:22
daftykinsJayBau: i don't see any nvidia there at all17:22
urist_12.4 is still supporteD?17:22
JayBau(although I tried some solutions already)17:22
lordievaderx4w3: Do you have usbutils installed?17:22
daftykinsurist_: yes17:22
tgm4883urist_: yes17:22
urist_cause my 12.4 server hasn't been getting updated for a while now17:23
tgm4883urist_: you should check that out then17:23
JayBauthat's actually strange because in my software updates tab, I can only see nvidia17:23
bitwigglerso 12.04 it is17:23
bitwiggler12.05 rather17:23
tgm4883urist_: it's supported until 201717:23
daftykinsno 12.0417:23
urist_i didn't know... ty17:23
daftykins12.04.5 :>17:23
x4w3lordievader: yes i have.17:23
JayBauso that means, I should force my machine to use intel driver even if nvidia shows in sotware updates tab?17:23
daftykinsJayBau: can you pastebin /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?17:23
tgm4883daftykins: which is 12.04 plus updates17:23
daftykinstgm4883: trust me, i don't need it explained17:24

JayBau@tgm4883 System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers Tab17:26
JayBauyes, pretty sure17:26
tgm4883bitwiggler: 'sudo apt-get update'17:26
JayBauthis is Lenovo Z50017:26
daftykinsJayBau: weird, maybe the BIOS/EFI is set to a specific chip and not hybrid mode17:27
lordievaderx4w3: lsbusb != usb-devices17:27
daftykinscan't explain it not showing up in lspci17:27
bitwigglertgm4883:  doing that. and it's still insisting on installing an old version17:27
JayBaunot really sure when this Nvidia will be used, I am trying to screenshot the driver tab to show17:27

x4w3lordievader: how can i load it to this device?17:31
JayBau@daftykins http://paste.ubuntu.com/12001442/17:31
lordievaderx4w3: The problem is the linux kernel doesn't have a driver available for that device, else it would have loaded it.17:31
JayBauI have updated and cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log17:31
x4w3lordievader: ok i build again...17:32
daftykinsJayBau: was it disabled?17:32
daftykinsJayBau: "dpkg -l | grep nvidia | pastebinit" (with 'pastebinit' installed)17:32
lordievaderx4w3: The driver?17:32
JayBauyes, I disabled it earlier because if I accidentally adjust the brightness, it would go deem17:32
x4w3lordievader: kernel17:32
JayBaushould I install prime?17:33
daftykinsJayBau: ah well if you're going to reinstall anyway, not much point fighting it now17:33
daftykinsit already is on17:33
lordievaderx4w3: Do your sources contain the driver?17:33
daftykinsJayBau: but your nvidia driver isn't in use17:34
daftykinsJayBau: fresh lspci ?17:34

kadiromy only problem i think in lubuntu is update-grub take a long times and the boot too ( with or withou deleting quiet splash )17:46

Amozkadiro, define "long time"17:47

daftykinsJuJuBee: share a pastebin of "sudo parted -l" and also have you checked the health of sdd recently? is it a mechanical disk?17:47
aarobchi! so, I can't figure out how to start a terminal based on a udev rule17:47
kadiroabout 3 to 5 minute for update and 10 minutes to boot17:47

skinuxCan anyone tell me what package I need so Apache/PHP has AES encryption support?17:47
kadiroI'm not now from ubuntu to check17:47
JayBaudaftykins: I bought this laptop 2years ago with a Win8 on it. After the warranty period, I decided to install Ubuntu on it and facing this problem17:48
Amozskinux, AES?17:48
daftykinsJayBau: ok, that doesn't affect anything though17:48
artoisany way to get at /proc/config.gz or equivalent from 15.04 image?17:48

JayBaunext time, I will buy something that has ubuntu loaded on it to avoid these problems17:48
kadirocan be a problem in my IDE cable cause that?17:48
lordievaderx4w3: You could try to see what udev says about it when you plug it in.17:48
JayBauatleast, I will be sure that Ubuntu works fine :)17:48
Amozkadiro, sounds like you have a very old drive :P17:49

JuJuBeedaftykins: it is a 2T sata drive internal\17:49
skinuxAmoz: Why is that surprising?17:50
x4w3lordievader: by default in ubuntu udev is not debugging, isnt it?17:50
daftykinsJuJuBee: "dmesg > /tmp/test" then "pastebinit /tmp/test"17:50

TJ-skinux: apache2 uses libcrypto++/libssl - to specify specific algorithms uses apache's SSLCipherSuite17:55
JayBauhdaftykins: ttp://paste.ubuntu.com/12001616/17:55
Amozskinux, you probably just need the normal packages for SSL support, and then set your conf to exclusively use AES in that case.17:55
kadirothk's guys for yours suggession but i searched before with no answer ( my internet is very slow to do a lot search too )17:55

JayBaudaftykins: once you adjust the brightness, down or up, it will be deemed17:59
Amozkadiro, it's hard to say why. You could try another distro/version/fresh install, or you can install bootchart and check where the time is spent.17:59

BotchlaBLeverquin_, use something like UNetBootin to make a USB bootable from an ISO file.18:06
Leverquin_my computer is around 6years old.18:06
BotchlaBLeverquin_, when your computer turns on, during the POST, see if you can press F12 or something to see which devices it can boot from.18:06

ramsub08hello, my system is connected to a router and that router is the part of LAN. How do i scan other systems that are part of the LAN to which my router is connected ?18:13
AmozLeverquin_, Ubuntu is a completely different OS, nothing you see in windows will be "available" in Ubuntu, except for the actual Windows filesystem, which you can mount to e.g. reach files.18:13
ramsub08*scan using nmap18:13
BotchlaBLeverquin_: You'll need to get HexChat for your separate Ubuntu install, yes; I am sure there's a way to save configurations though.18:13
Leverquin_so i need to install every thing again?18:13
AmozLeverquin_, it's a different OS, of course you have to setup everything there.18:14
kadiroramsub08: good question i hop some one give an answer18:14
MonkeyDust!pm | thepatze118:14
ubottuthepatze1: Please ask your questions in the channel so that other people can help you, benefit from your questions and answers, and ensure that you're not getting bad advice.18:14
AmozLeverquin_, have you never reinstalled Windows before?18:14
Leverquin_i did.18:14
AmozLeverquin_, did you lose all your data and programs back then?18:15
Amozas in, did you have to reinstall stuff?18:15
Amozthink of a fresh install of Ubuntu as the same thing18:15
Leverquin_oh i see.18:15
Leverquin_thank amoz18:15
kadiroLeverquin_: installing ubuntu you will have two systems without loosing anything in windows exept if you do an format or an mistakes when installng it18:15
p1l0tkadiro: It's still saying "database has been closed"18:16
Leverquin_i hope i iwll not18:16
AmozLeverquin_, although, a good thing with Linux is that you can easily have two separate partitions, such that your personal data in /home can stay, while the system is reformatted.18:16
kadirop1l0t: and the other message error disapeered?18:16
p1l0tkadiro: yes18:16
Leverquin_what version of ununtu to get?18:17
kadirofor a message about database i have no idea, but i like to know what the application is about?18:17
thepatze1latest lts i figure18:17
AmozLeverquin_, depends on what you want, but I'd recommend 14.04 for stability.18:17
BotchlaBLeverquin_: For people new to Ubuntu, 14.04, the current LTS, seems to be the best bet.18:18
Bashing-omLeverquin_: "what version of ununtu to get?" for a new user 14.04 !18:18
thepatze1I can sign that18:18
Leverquin_ok so no 15.0418:18
thepatze1lts is best bet18:18
urist_im sure 15.04 is fine but if you are new you want something stable18:18
urist_i still use 14.04 and it works very well18:18
kadiroah i see your browser can't connect to internet? p1l0t18:18
urist_im curious to try ubuntu mate though... ppl seem to love it18:19
p1l0tkadiro: the browser won't even load18:19
p1l0tkadiro: neither firefox or chromuim18:19
Bashing-omLeverquin_: Release 15.04 is an interim release, support ends in 9 months from date of release. That EOL is Jan . Not much time to learn the ropes .18:19
thepatze1mate mimics the old gnome2 desktop18:19
thepatze1i like that18:20
Leverquin_in my country there are wise words: even God loves when it free :)18:20
urist_yeah... supposed to be pretty light too... maybe not as light as fxce18:20
urist_but pretty good18:20
thepatze1i prefer xfce18:20
urist_don't know if i want to replace my xfce install18:20
urist_i like it a lot18:20
p1l0tkadiro: I don't know what zeitgeist-fts is, I'd google it but I can't. I assume if I reboot I might be alright I just dual monitors and 4 workspaces up and don't want to loose everything18:20
kadirop1l0t: surelly something about your utf i think18:20
urist_thepatze1: u use Xubuntu?18:21
kadirofirewall* utf18:21
p1l0tOh wait my phone.. haha I can google on my phone browser18:21
thepatze1xfce is my desktop and wm3 is nice aswell18:23
MonkeyDustp1l0t  i guess zeitgeist is what is used to have access to "recent files" in apps18:23

slayerIm new18:25
thepatze1I dislike ubuntu because of its unity comercials18:26
thepatze1is gnome-fallback even possible anymore?18:26
artoisif you want old GNOME, you should probably go with MATE instead18:26
artoisor Xfce18:26
tonyyarussothepatze1: I haven't tried 15.04, but it is in 14.04, renamed flashback instead of fallback.18:27

BottomNotchI found my touchscreen on ttyS418:40
BottomNotchI try to attach and a few sorta work18:41
MeatPopsiclewas it really that stupid of an error -____-18:41
BottomNotchbut no make it usable18:41
BottomNotcheven with callibration18:41
g2000MeatPopsicle: I know that feeling :D18:42
pbxBottomNotch, mine "just worked" with a standard 14.04 install so i'm afraid i'm no use to you18:42
MeatPopsicleim not a smart man sometimes18:42
MeatPopsicleNow to fix my other laptop and toss something on it, maybe Ubuntu Mate18:43
g2000BottomNotch: What do you mean by "sorta work"?18:43
BottomNotchg2000, with mtouch when I touch the screen it goes crazy and it like i'm pressing everywhere at once and calibration doesn't fix it18:44
kadiroI have question about DE, between lxde and xfce who is best? ( I'm using lxde for both lubuntu and fedora )18:44
MonkeyDustkadiro  "best" depends on what you prefer18:44
p1l0tSo I did a zeitgeist-daemon -q and then attempted to start it again. I got this: Could not access the database file.18:45
urist_i think lxde and xfce are pretty comparable... I personally like fxce just cause it looks a bit nicer18:45
p1l0tPlease check the permissions of file /home/p1l0t/.local/share/zeitgeist/activity.sqlite.18:45
p1l0t/home/p1l0t/.local doesn't even exist18:45
g2000BottomNotch: I have never used any touchscreen device with Ubuntu, but are you sure that there is no hardware error?18:45
kadiroMonkeyDust: thk's, i just want the lighter one18:45
kadirothk's urist_18:46
urist_lxde is the lightest one of the 2. but i think there is something even lighter18:46
Ramziis there a way to use the contents of a file as input to apt-get without writing a loop? I was hop there was a command that would output the contents of a file in a way that it could be piped into apt-get.18:46
BottomNotchg200, it works fine in windows 8.1 Pro18:46
urist_whatever arch comes with usually18:46
kadirop1l0t: what you means about .local is not exist?18:46
mcphailp1l0t: you do know that /home/p1lot/.local/ is a hidden directory?18:46
kadirourist_: exist others DE lighter than both?18:47
EriC^^Ramzi: xargs18:47
p1l0tkadiro: mcphail: I tried using sudo ls -a doesn't appear in there18:47
kadirop1l0t: try to add it18:47
mcphailp1l0t: fair enough. It is a directory that tends to get added quickly as a lot of programs write to it18:48
BottomNotchmaybe I should downgrade to ubuntu 12.04, I here the touchscreen on my laptop works out of box on 12.0418:48
urist_kadiro: I've never used it. but I believe the DE arch uses is lighter but I think it's also a bit bare bones. i think it's called openbox18:49
g2000BottomNotch: I'd recommend trying that out on a live cd / thumbdrive first.18:49
kadirooh yes thk's urist_ i heared that from someone tell me that too18:50
g2000BottomNotch: If it is working on 12.04, there are good chances to get it running on the latest Ubuntu version, too.18:50
BottomNotchg200, good idea, I don't really feel like it right now though.  I would also much rather figure out how to get it working on 14.0418:51
Rave1urist_,   openbox is a window manager  in fact it is the window manager used by LXDE'18:51
pbxBottomNotch, mine "just worked" with a standard 14.04 install so i'm afraid i'm no use to you18:51
BottomNotchpbx, it's ok18:51
g2000BottomNotch: But I doubt I can really help you because I never used any touchscreen device with Ubuntu /:18:52
BottomNotchg2000, thanks anyways18:52
kadiroRave1: so that means there is no DE lighter than both xfce and lxde?18:52
Rave1urist_,   and you could have any DE or window manager you wish on most distros18:52
urist_Rave1: oh thank you for clarifying this. i've never actually used it before18:53
Rave1kadiro,   I bet google knows18:53
TJ-BottomNotch: best advice is 'read the logs' - for the basic "input" device(s) see "/var/log/kern.log". For the Xserver GUI input device detection/configuration, see "/var/log/Xorg.0.log".18:53
kadiroRave1: thk's anyway18:53
BottomNotchTJ-, i'll take a look18:54
wafflejockkadiro, I believe lxqt is a contender on the lightest desktop front but not sure how the tiling window managers compare, something like Awesome TWM might be lighter18:54
kadiroRave1: google confuse me some users said that this DE is lighter than other and other said something else so google give me nothing18:54
wafflejockkadiro, you need to look for benchmarks18:55
MeatPopsicleI thought MATE was the lightest?18:55
wafflejockkadiro, not opinions :)18:55
kadirooh cool thk's wafflej0ck_18:55
TJ-BottomNotch: if the device is 'sort-of' working with the X server then the latter might reveal something. As always, use the things you find that are relevant as keys to further web searches for documentation.18:55
RamziEric^^: Muchas Gracias!!!18:55
EriC^^Ramzi: no problem18:55
kadiroi tried it ( lxqt ) but still uncomplet ( under develloping i think )18:55
wafflejockkadiro, yeah believe it's pretty new18:56
BottomNotchTJ-, what do you mean by X server?18:56
BottomNotchI'm a bit of a newb :P18:56
kadirothk's again wafflej0ck_18:56
wafflejockkadiro, np18:56
TJ-BottomNotch: The X server is what drives the GUI18:56

kadirothk's you very much Mr wafflejock19:00

xanguax4w3: if it's incompatible with any future release also, consider investigate next time the hardware is linux compatible19:00
BottomNotchTJ-, I don't see anything that looks helpfull in the X server log and I'd rather not have touchscreen than weed through the kernal log19:01

BottomNotchkadiro, do you know how to get a serial toucscreen to work on ubuntu 14.0419:03
x4w3lordievader and xangua i run it with sudo modprobe rt2800usb :P19:03
x4w3and run now!19:03
OerHeksmersa, reboot. or next time: stop the service first, before removal.19:04
kadirosorry BottomNotch never heard that , but i think you have to look in /dev/ttyS0 .. ttyS1 .. ttyS2 ...19:05
wafflejockNectar, ah didn't know what you were asking there I guess that's an interesting one... the motd lets you run some commands to show system stats or whatever when someone logs in to a terminal19:05
mersaOerHeks: so you mean removing the wine program will stop this service19:05
BottomNotchkadiro, I have allready found it in ttyS419:05
OerHeksmersa, no, linux keeps it running in memory.19:05
mersaOerHeks: I mean after rebooting19:05
mersamy fear is it won't go away and I need to remove something else19:05
JustAPersonAnyone have experience using a Wiimote with ubuntu? I found a random USB bluetooth receiver, but I can't pair with my wiimote. It briefly flashes a screen saying "enter this pin xxxxxx" but quickly says pairing failed19:06
OerHeksmersa, no, if ther server is running on wine, and you removed it, it will not return19:06
BottomNotchI could buy a capacitive multitouch layer that uses USB19:06
mersaOerHeks: besides wine package, is there any other package related? like wine-server, I don't know..19:06

BottomNotchkadiro, maybe, also I don't know for sure if it works in 12.04, it's just what I've heard19:18

wafflejockMoonBurst, you can check reviews or just try them out, using virtual box is an easy way to check out different distros or desktop environments for yourself but good to keep in mind they will run slower in there and you may have some issues a regular install wouldn't have19:44

JayBaual2o3-cr: yes, and you can check here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12002426/19:56
kadirook BottomNotch nice choose19:56
wileeeMoonBurst, You might dualboot or use a vm as suggested, depending on your needs and skill level a switch to linux only has a learning curve.19:57
MoonBurstDualboot for sure. I did try a linux before a few years back, but I had quite a bit of trouble getting it to work.19:57
BotchlaBMoonBurst: Try a few LiveCDs out, pick one you like.19:57
MoonBurstSimply because it wasn't as user friendly as other big name OSs.19:58
MoonBurstBut I suppose that's sort of the point19:58
JayBaual2o3-cr: I will just reinstall this one, maybe something would work if I installed the OS having the secondary card disabled :)19:58
JayBaual2o3-cr: thanks19:58
p1l0tMoonBurst: I think you'll be pleasantly surprised how far it's come.19:58
BottomNotchkadiro, ok, i'm on the hunt for dependencies, one of the downloads from the forum post gives me a 404 page19:59
al2o3-crok, np19:59
BotchlaBMoonBurst: Well, yes and no -- desktop environments these days are every bit as friendly as Windows or OS X; and if you ever want full control, pop open a terminal, and get typing. ;)19:59
wileeeMoonBurst, I think ubuntu is a great start, very user friendly in several ways including a large support base.19:59
BotchlaBBest of both worlds.19:59
MoonBursta large support base is a strong point for any new task I'd think.20:00

kadiroand go back to the link i shared before20:00
MoonBurstI'm just hoping my programs are all compatable. I've heard some things just don't like Linux.20:00
BotchlaBMoonBurst: Definitely. I'd say all of the major distros (the first 20 or so on DistroWatch) have very active support communities.20:00
BotchlaBMoonBurst: These include Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Arch Linux, etc.20:00

t4nkdHey ubuntu, this is probably something dumb that I don't understand about packages, but, I found a package I really want to use, here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/p7zip-rar -- and I've build a ubuntu:trusty docker container (which has this sources.list - https://gist.github.com/anonymous/6d433829c8b24e2c4dea) but I still can't seem to find or install p7zip-rar, what am I missing?20:01
MoonBurstThe ones I've heard of are Ubuntu, Mint, and Wine. Though I heard Ubuntu is a good base for getting your feet wet with Linux. Or something like that.20:01
BotchlaBMoonBurst: "Wine" isn't a distro in and of itself, it's a layer of sorts that allows you to run Windows applications, to a degree, within GNU/Linux distributions.20:02

t4nkdNo, thing is, the package is in multiverse because it uses non-free stuff20:04
OerHekst4nkd, it is part of universe,make sure you have that enabled20:04
MoonBurstJust for support and ease of use, I'm going to go with a dualboot of ubuntu. Thanks for the help and suggestions. I think I can install it easy enough, if I can't... then I probably shouldn't be messing with Linux anyway.20:04
BotchlaBMoonBurst: It is very easy to install, and if you run into issues, this channel is always around anyway. ;) Good luck!20:04

wileeeMoonBurst, Be sure to resize the windows from the windows partition manager leaving the unallocated for ubuntu, and restart windows to make sure it's good. You can do it with the install, however it is nice to see the windows resized and running before installing linux.20:08

BottomNotchoh, kadiro, you want me to find install instructions right?20:18
NGC3982 /home/ contains the only data i'm interested in.20:18
NGC3982That said.20:18
omgitsmitNGC3982: i usually just remove the boot flag from the partition20:18
wileeeNGC3982, long as it is not read first, or your grub breaks you should be fine20:18
omgitsmitNGC3982: using gparted or some other util20:18

kadiromake install with root20:19
wileeeomgitsmit, nope, but it is no biggie.20:19
NGC3982In the Ubuntu disk settings, i can mark it "[X] Bootable". Should de-marking that one solve my issue?20:20

omgitsmitNGC3982: apparaently it wont20:20
zykotick9!checkinstall | BottomNotch a suggestion...20:20
ubottuBottomNotch a suggestion...: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!20:20
wileeeomgitsmit, If you have two linux OS, it is which has the grub control, it is the first kernel in grub having the control, unless modified.20:21

FancypantsQuick question guys. I have an SSD for my Windows install, I have a big 1tb dump drive for extra storage. Can I make a partition on that dump drive to install linux without erasing the drive or anything? I'm not sure how all this works.20:55
kadiroBottomNotch: and only /dev/ttyS4 gives you an answer if i understand20:55
BottomNotchI believe so, I havn't tried anything beyond S4 though20:56
BottomNotchwant me to see if I ge an answer from anything beyond S4?20:56
mcphailFancypants: usually, yes20:57
Leverquin_i like that game fancypants XD20:57
FancypantsHeh, thanks. mcphail: What would I need to do that? Sorry, I'm a giant scrub when it comes to this stuff.20:57
kadiroBottomNotch: yes just to see what's happen20:58
FancypantsOr if you could point me to a guide online, that would be mega rad too.20:58
BottomNotch just went all the way through S12 and nothing20:58
kadiroah i see surelly S4 is a right one20:59
mcphailFancypants: the installer should let you shrink your data partition and create space for Ubuntu21:00
mcphailFancypants: make sure you have a backup, though21:01
badbodhjust make sure you choose that same drive for installing mbr21:01
Fancypantsmcphail: Oh, I didn't even think of that. I was thinking I'd need a partition program and jigger around with that a ton. That's an interesting idea. Thank you.21:01
kadiroBottomNotch: you said about: sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-wacom that gives you some errors, can you paste them?21:01
badbodhmcphail, that's a 1tb drive, back up where ? :D21:01
jwashFancypants: you should use the gparted live cd21:01
BottomNotchkadiro, just issues with dependencies21:01
mcphailjwash: that is not necessary21:02
jwashFancypants: i've used it several times to do a shrink with success21:02
kadiroBottomNotch: sho me21:02
BottomNotchso, I guess I should install the dependencies21:02
jwashit's easier than the built in partitioner during install21:02
derichmy system (15.04) can't display chinese and other unicode characters, any idea? :|21:02
Fancypantsmchail jwash: Using gparted or something like that is what i was afraid of. I'm not too confident in my skills to not bugger this whole thing up.21:02
mcphailjwash: if gparted is needed, it can be run directly from the ubuntu install disk21:03
jwashFancypants: it really isn't a big deal21:03
jwashjust defragment first21:03
mcphailFancypants: gparted is simple enough, but the installer _should_ be enough in itself21:03
=== lei00 is now known as Lei00
jwashit's pretty hard to screw up if you make sure and defragment first21:04
Fancypantsjwash mcphail: Right on. Thank you guys. I appreciate the help. I'll see what I can do here.21:04
FancypantsOooh one last thing...21:04

FancypantsI have Windows 8 on my SSD and that's what it always boots into first. When I install, do I need to install grub onto the SSD as well so I can choose which to boot?21:04

wileeeFancypants, awesome, carry on. ;)21:05
jwashi typically don't change the bootloader on my windows disc, so i can always switch back via BIOS21:05

derichmy system (15.04) can't display chinese and other unicode characters, any idea? :|21:18
CosmicNoisesmp_se, in the display settings there is usually an option to have launcher span monitors.21:19
CosmicNoisesmp_se, but tell us more about your setup. You have a laptop with two external video outs?21:19
columboPlaces yesterday a SSD, ubuntu is flying now!!21:20
CosmicNoisescolumbo, yes. Works very well on SSDs now.21:20
mp_seyep, one  is on connected via vga, and the second one via hdmi21:20
CosmicNoisesmp_se, and you see output on both monitors?21:20
CosmicNoisesmp_se, http://i.stack.imgur.com/XN5c1.png21:21
columboI added noatime to my partitions, but are there more options to optimize SSD?21:21
jwashmp_se install arandr21:21
columbolike TRIM21:21
jwashit is a graphic tool which will help alot21:21
CosmicNoisesmp_se, should see something like that in the display settings. Launcher placement should have an option for both displays.21:21
CosmicNoisesjwash, true in general, but I don't think it has options for launcher placement.21:22
=== panos is now known as Guest93899
mp_seyes, everything is fine with that, but I need upper menu (Aplications, Places) and bottom with opened programs on both monitors21:22
lickalottSpider, 1 copied over 7 in progress.  May have been the other two cables.  They were the OEM cables21:22
CosmicNoisesmp_se, you're not using unity?21:22
CosmicNoisesmp_se, what DE?21:22
jwashi use xfce and just change it in the panel settings21:22
OerHekstrim is enabled by default21:22
ubottuMany Solid State Drives support TRIM, which allows the drive to do garbage collection and improves performance. Ubuntu 14.04 activates it by default. For older versions, see http://askubuntu.com/a/19480 for information on activating it.21:22
mp_sehow to see that :(21:22
mp_seI think it's gnome21:22
jwashdid you just download the ubuntu iso burn and install?21:23
CosmicNoisesmp_se, what version of ubuntu are you on? Just plain ubuntu? Or Xubuntu? Or Kubuntu?21:23
mp_sebut how to be suer?21:23
columboCan you check it? I'm running 15.0421:23
jwashif yes then it is gnome21:23
Jeff__how do i open a file without opening it - this way i can trick watchers (like inotifywait) to execute21:23
mp_seubuntu 14.0421:23
jwashlikely gnome21:23
CosmicNoisesjwash, how? Unity is standard.21:23
jwashyou didn't download xubuntu or kubuntu?21:23
jwashCosmicNoises: i use Xubuntu21:23
Spidercables can cause lots of issues I have had my fair share of bad cables.21:23
CosmicNoisesjwash, me too. But standard ubuntu uses unity as standard, not gnome.21:24

wileeeCosmicNoises, unity is a plugin in compiz sitting on top of gnome 3.21:25
CosmicNoisesmp_se, there's two links in that message, in case it's not clear.21:26
CosmicNoisesOkay, so not unity then.21:26
CosmicNoisesGnome indeed.21:26
wileeewe just want accuracy here is all, it is all good21:26
CosmicNoiseswileee, ofc.21:27
mp_semaybe because I have one monitor 22" and the second 23"21:27
mp_sebut they're on the same resolution, and I've selected that content fits with smaller monitor21:27
CosmicNoisesmp_se, shouldn't be an issue. Although you will probably end up with 'dead space' on your desktop, so watch out for that.21:27
CosmicNoisesBut shouldn't cause issues with launcher placement, etc.21:28
mp_seyep, I know21:29
CosmicNoisesmp_se, I personally don't understand why you'd want the launcher duplicated on two screens though :P21:29
CosmicNoisesmp_se, well, if the display options ain't doing it for you, try compiz settings.21:29

omgitsmitkadiro: IRC Guidelines http://ubottu.com/y/gl21:59
CosmicNoisesmp_se, to be fair, dual screen support is not as good as it could be. There's a lot of functionality not allowed for, and it's an issue I've found myself "giving up" on for a few years now.22:00
omgitsmitCosmicNoises: running quad display with dual SLI without issues here.22:00
CosmicNoisesomgitsmit, absolutely. But there's just certain NICHE things you might want to do that I've yet to find a solution for.22:01
CosmicNoisesFor example, I have a small monitor above my main monitor, and it's centered above it.22:01
CosmicNoisesThis results in deadspace to the left side of the desktop, where icons gather unseen.22:01
MoPacHello. I'm wondering if there are tools in Ubuntu (or really in any environment) that I could use to readily swap the assigned locations of partitions and empty space on my SSD, which is quite full, complicating any wholesale movement of existing ones. Since it's an SSD, after all (and using GPT), is there some way to just arbitrarily move unallocated space or assign to a distant partition?22:02
CosmicNoisesYet to find a fix.22:02
omgitsmitCosmicNoises: i see22:02
mp_sethanx for help22:02
omgitsmitCosmicNoises: i'm just doing vabilla landscape, nothing fancy here22:02
CosmicNoisesomgitsmit, yeah, it works great for basic set ups. Multiple monitors all the same size? Not an issue.22:02
omgitsmitCosmicNoises: two different sizes, i just had to bump the position around so my mouse wouldnt jump 6-8inches22:03
greyback_MoPac: gparted the best choice you've got for resizing partitions22:03
CosmicNoisesmp_se, I recommend XFCE as a desktop environment which is COMPLETELY customisable across multiple monitors if you like.22:03
kadiroubuntu look better than mint22:03
MoPacgreyback_: I've tried using gparted, but it doesn't seem to have that kind of power right out of the box.22:04
kadiroalso the users here are very good22:04
CosmicNoiseskadiro, it ain't no pissing match./22:04
kadiroCosmicNoises: what you means?22:04
CosmicNoisesmp_se, you can choose as many panels in as many locations as you like, completely customise them, etc.22:04
greyback_MoPac: it's a tool you need to control. I can resize and move partitions, but it won't figure out the best scenario for you.22:04
MoPacThe situation looks a bit like: [stuff] [unallocated space] [giant LUKS-crypt partition] [small Windows partition that could really use some extra space]22:04
CosmicNoiseskadiro, just saying, it's not a competition :P22:05
CosmicNoiseseven though it is.22:05
CosmicNoisesmp_se, and the xubuntu flavour is officially and very well supported.22:05
omgitsmitwhat it is it aint, and what it aint, it is.22:05
CosmicNoisesmp_se, not that you need to reinstall a new distro - just install xfce and enable as your DE.22:05
kadiroI'm banned from all chanels from mint just saying one word22:05
CosmicNoiseskadiro, what word?22:05
greyback_MoPac: gparted may be unable to resize ntfs however. But try resizing stuff so you've free space around the windows/ntfs  partition. Then use window's disk manager to resize the ntfs partition to use that free space up22:06
kadiroCosmicNoises: can i say it here ( swear word ) ?22:06
CosmicNoiseskadiro, nope.22:06
omgitsmitkadiro: IRC Guidelines http://ubottu.com/y/gl22:06
CosmicNoiseskadiro, I'm surprised I got away with pissing.22:06
greyback_MoPac: so use gparted to move your LUKS partition, then have window expand its partition to suit22:06
CosmicNoisesI think the idea is to keep the IRC child-friendly. Most children I know swear more than I do.22:06

radian_hey im new in ubuntu mate for raspberry pi 222:09
MoPacgreyback_: The point of my original question was: since this is an *SSD*, and therefore I assume that the "locations" of the partitions are totally arbitrary, is there some tool to take advantage of that rather than treating them like they're on a magnetic disk?22:09
omgitsmitMoPac: data is data, i would think it could move the bits over without issues.22:10
omgitsmitMoPac: im lazy and just clonezilla everything these days hahaha22:11
MoPacomgitsmit: You mean re: the LuKS thing?22:11
omgitsmitMoPac: yeah22:11
MoPacomgitsmit: http://gparted.org/features.php22:11

DarthFrogHi folks.  With the new 3.19.0-25-generic kernel, is safe to turn trim on again in fstab for my Samsung SSD drives?22:13
MoPacBut again, I'm sitting here thinking: "Is it really necessary for me to be going through all of that to get the unallocated space located 'adjaect' to a certain partition when on an SSD there's no physical meaning to that?"22:13
greyback_MoPac: yep, unless you're gonna hack the firmware of the SSD ;)22:15

M1ST1CI got problems with my graphics driver on my dell inspiron mini 1011.  http://imgur.com/nLzntK922:32
k1l_mioso: ok, your video card is that old, that its not supported by amd driver since 14.04. you you can only use the free dirver (which runs automatically)22:33
omgitsmitM1ST1C: did you check for additional drivers?22:33
wileeeM1ST1C, Is the OS running fine graphics work fine? lspci in a terminal will tell you the graphics22:34
k1l_M1ST1C: please pastebin a "lspci"22:34
bitwiggleris there anyway to force "apt-get upgrade" to actually pull a newer valid package list from archive.ubuntu.com? and avoid the 404 on apt-get upgrade22:34
miosok1l: Thank you. Any advice on improving that video card?22:34
k1l_mioso: yes, buy a new one22:34
omgitsmitbitwiggler: just apt-get update?22:34
wileeeM1ST1C, gotta be intel  most likely22:34
wileeeM1ST1C, Do the lspci pastebin as suggested if you can22:35
k1l_M1ST1C: that is really really low memory in there. i would not hope that its running "usable" on any other ubuntu than the Lubuntu.22:35
bitwiggleromgitsmit: wish that was fixing it. :P22:35
omgitsmitbitwiggler: i mean you could just remove the sources that are 404'ing out22:36
M1ST1CI will I have to go to work22:36
k1l_bitwiggler: run a apt-get update.22:36
M1ST1CYou guys are on 24/722:36
omgitsmitbitwiggler: but if you want to refresh the software it's pulling down from archive.ubuntu.org just apt-get update22:36
k1l_bitwiggler: that will get you a proper new package list from the servers22:36
wileeeM1ST1C, yeah, the memory is low lubuntu will be better22:37
k1l_bitwiggler: if you get any errors, please put all that output into a pastebin and show the link here22:37
bitwigglerapt-get update + apt-get upgrade is what is breaking22:37
omgitsmitbitwiggler: you most likely have some sources that are no longer available (404), run the command and pastebin the errors22:38
k1l_bitwiggler: put it all into a pastebin and show the link here22:38

bitwigglerapt-get update then apt-get install is hitting the 404 on old libsqlite package22:42

miosoBefore I purchase a GPU, Would I have this same problem with other xubuntu or kubuntu, etc? I'd rather not buy anything22:43
k1l_mioso: that pc seems quite fast with enough ram and a ssd. i really think the old video card could be the issue22:44

omgitsmitSpeakFreely: i import from terminal, otherwise i think you need a package for it to show up in nm-manager22:58
AndroUserWhat desktop environment do you guys use?22:58
SpeakFreelyomgitsmit, well I downloaded network-manager-openvpn. How do I import from terminal?22:58
Bashing-ommioso: I run an older ATI card . That also no longer has ATI support. BUT, a bit newer and have no problems with the 'radeon' open sourcse driver. Paid $15 US for the card .22:58

AndroUserHi there23:00
joker_89I have a doubt, I want to have a Ubuntu server and 2 windows clients. How can I add users to the ubuntu server? LDAP, SAMBA, ...?23:01
WarAndGeeseMy second ubuntu live usb seems to have broken !g23:02
joker_89to autenticate the users23:02
WarAndGeeseignore that "!g"23:02
AndroUserJoker: depends what functions you want23:02
omgitsmitSpeakFreely: this is what i have bookmarked for my setup - https://goo.gl/c8M3Ri23:03
omgitsmitSpeakFreely: it let me get it working in the network manager23:03
joker_89[andatche] i want only to share files with samba23:03
AndroUserJoker: Do you want to control the computers and users, like in active directory,  or only share files?23:03
joker_89which is the solution for each one?23:04
WarAndGeeseIs that a thing? ubuntu live usb's breaking a lot? I followed what seemed to be the most recommended instructions, and got the distribution from a legitimate source23:04
AndroUserI use samba myself for my homeserver. I think it's the best way to go.23:04
joker_89if i want both f23:04
SpeakFreelyomgitsmit, Alright thank you, going to try it now23:04
joker_89and if i want to use as an active direcotry?23:04
AndroUserI only need file sharing, so it works Great for me.23:04
omgitsmitSpeakFreely: love openvpn, i set up the "access server" package so i can easily browse, download, import and connect23:04
squintyWarAndGeese, best way to download in my opinion is torrent (psp) from the ubuntu site.  check the md5 sum to test the integrity of your download23:05
AndroUserI haven't tried that out, but i've heard it's pretty straight forward. I think Google, or other participents of this channel,  are a greater help than me in that case.23:05
WarAndGeeseThat's what I did, from the ubuntu site23:05
WarAndGeeseor a linux site, whatever the official one was23:05
SpeakFreelyomgitsmit, what is the "access server" package?23:06
skittishtriggerok, so I tried    * * * * * du -hs home/user/ > home/luser/spaceused.txt and evern after restarting cron it does not seem to be updating. running the base command from term updates it.23:06
omgitsmitSpeakFreely: https://openvpn.net/index.php/access-server/overview.html23:06
joker_89thanks andatche23:06

area51pilotI have a Dell Inspiron 15 with Synaptics touchpad and its too sensitive when using the touchpad input. I need to increase the pressure and palm detection but everthing I try doesnt seem to work. When I use the touchpad, just moving my finger selects text and scrolls a page without clicking. When in Nautilus, it grabs the resizing bar and shortcuts/bookmarks/folders and attempts to drag them. Can anyone help me23:07
LtLskittishtrigger: try a / slash before home23:07
omgitsmitSpeakFreely: gives me a landing page that auto detects what im browsing on (android, windows, linux, osx) and gives me the openvpn profile to import for that platform23:07
AndroUserJoker: No problem. Happy to help23:07
SpeakFreelyomgitsmit, oh wow that's cool23:07
skittishtriggerin both cases?23:07

skittishtriggercuess I could su in as user then make the cron there to run command23:10
cogitation1Can anyone help?23:10
squintyWarAndGeese,  http://www.ubuntu.com/download/alternative-downloads  for torrent download    also check your md5sum23:10
skittishtrigger* * * * * du -hs home/user/ > home/luser/spaceused.txt should output directory size every 1min23:10
WarAndGeesesquinty: pendrivelinux is the one I used, using the universal usb installer. Maybe I'll try the other one23:10
WarAndGeeseand yes, I used the torrent directly from the ubuntu site23:10
omgitsmitskittishtrigger: you're missing a slash before "home"23:10
skittishtriggerthat was the up arrow trick. cron has slashed before both homes now23:11
AndroUserWarandgeese: I use Rawrite23:11
AndroUserWorks every time.23:11
omgitsmitskittishtrigger: also, when im having cronjob issues - to quickly troubleshoot i run the cron line manually to see if it even works23:12
omgitsmitusually its a syntax issue23:13
skittishtriggerthe base command works but I have not tried it with the * * * * * arguments23:13
toshibaas usual this room BLOWs for help23:13
omgitsmitwithout the *23:13
skittishtriggerI am thinking a user issue because my other cron job in that file seems to work23:13
WarAndGeeseMaybe I'll try rawrite too23:13
omgitsmitskittishtrigger: the stars are just the timing, check out this cronjob calculator http://cron.nmonitoring.com/cron-generator.html23:14
skittishtriggernice utility. :) It output the exact think I had in cron the first time. lol23:15
omgitsmitskittishtrigger: from what you pasted, i see missing slashes for /home/user and /home/luser23:15
skittishtriggercron job utility suggested without it. I have tried both ways so far23:16
KoningDoes anyone in here know a way to make the terminal background blurry?23:16

k1lKoning: did you try the settings of the profile from the gnome-terminal?23:17
Koningit only supports transparancy23:17
Koningbut a nice guassian blur would help with readability, if you know what I mean23:18
Koninga transparant terminal over a window with text ins't really comfortable23:18
k1lKoning: adjust the transarency to your needs?23:18
Koningthat's not enough xd23:18
KoningI was able to do it in i3 using compton23:19
TJ-skittishtrigger: I'm wondering why you need to report that info so frequently. It begs the question have you considered using Quotas which incidentally provide tools for querying the user quota vs used values23:21
skittishtriggerit was just a temporary thing so they could keep track themselves. Letting them use my private ftp to back a laptops info before getting shipped out. they are jsut curious really23:22
carpediembaby_Hi. Is there some unified place where a proxy can be set and also offers a bit of control? I am using the standard network proxy switcher available with ubuntu but it doesn't have an option to exclude addresses23:22
skittishtriggerI can do it manually running the command but ehh. too lazy to stay here all night updating. lol23:23
omgitsmitcarpediembaby_: i ended up using a proxy switcher extension for chrome23:23
carpediembaby_I tried updating the setting of excluded addresses in dconf-editor and added for local addresses but it apparently doesn't work in chrome ..23:23
TJ-skittishtrigger: I'd suggest 1 minute intervals is too frequent. That's a lot of dirent reads and potential I/O to slow down the system and pollute the cache23:24
colincolbyanyone have a guide for 14.04 setting up email servers and also hopefully23:24
skittishtriggerya, that was more for testing to see if it was updatign the file. was going to set it at 10min intervals once working23:24
omgitsmitcarpediembaby_: yeah the extension has white/blacklists that you can tell it to say, always push ubuntu traffic over proxy23:24
omgitsmitcarpediembaby_: but my gmail web page wont go over proxy23:24
colincolbyssl certs23:24
carpediembaby_omgitsmit: which extension? even though i would like to avoid setting proxies for everything individually..23:25
omgitsmitproxify or something, lemme google23:25
colincolbyand a web based login too. one newbie can do all that in about a day i hope23:25
carpediembaby_omgitsmit: the default proxy works fine with chrome, i can access everything except my own machine :)23:25
colincolbyi tried squirrel once... meh23:25
skittishtriggerNo, I saw a squirrel...23:26
