TJ-cogitation1: My first question, and test, would be: regardless of the GUI, is the media readable and mountable. If not, that might explain why there is no GUI icon00:08

=== Guest38267 is now known as spaceburrito
TJ-cogitation1: open a Terminal so you have a command-line shell, then try "blkid /dev/sr*" - if anything valid is found you'll see something like "/dev/sr0: LABEL="DELL" TYPE="iso9660""00:11
nicekiwiSpider, afaik, no.00:11

nicekiwiSpider, though this project is trying to do it. N good progress on the iPad thought: http://www.idroidproject.org/wiki/Status#iPad00:13
cogitation1TJ-: I'm on a live cd.00:13
Spidercool thanks for the info00:13
TJ-cogitation1: OK, so that might be the Live CD ... which suggests the other drive media can't be read00:13
TJ-cogitation1: hang on, I'm confused. Is the Live CD you're running not the version of Ubuntu you want to install?00:14
cogitation1TJ-: quite possibly.  anything I could be doing wrong with brasero, that it says it burned correctly, but didn't?00:14

cogitation1TJ-: No, I'm making an ISO of Linux Mint 17.200:14

DMackeyNetwork manager was useless, IP's didn't transfer to the ethernet adapter.00:18
TJ-cogitation1: "tail /var/log/kern.log" might indicate some I/O errors trying to read the disc, which would tend to confirm it is now a coaster00:19

BotchlaBcogitation1: If when you find it, something like http://unetbootin.github.io/ may be of assistance.00:22
TJ-cogitation1: There's a rather neat way to do installs rather than burning discs or using USB... that is to create a Virtual Machine from the Live environment, set the physical hard disk as attached to the VM guest, attach the ISO installer image and run it :)00:22
MoonBurstI seem to be having a problem installing ubuntu. It won't boot from my USB, so I tried to do it from the C drive.

BotchlaBcogitation1: A word of warning if you have genuine Windows 7 and are eligible for that free upgrade to Windows 10; Windows 10 has been known to completely nuke the GRUB bootloader, and your Linux installation.00:26

cogitation1Will look into it.00:30
TJ-cogitation1: sorry, was making coffee. Using a VM is pretty straight-forward as long as the system supports VT-x extensions and they're enabled in firmware/BIOS. With that, just "apt-get install virt-manager" in the live env and then configure a VM guest00:31

TJ-cogitation1: There's something going wrong there... if you have access i'd be tempted to shutdown, disconnect and reconnect all the cables00:49
TJ-cogitation1: (for the DVD writers)00:49
cogitation1TJ-:  they're connected on like sata ports 2 and 3 of 0 through 5...there's also 1 and 2 on an entirely separate controller00:49
cogitation1TJ-:  I can do that... I don't have any spare ports though... could a failed hard drive on the other controller be related?00:50
TJ-cogitation1: For 2 drives to suddenly report I/O errors is suspicious.00:50
cogitation1TJ-:  I don't know if it's suddenly...I've had occasional problems with it for years actually.  pretty old drives... but they've both worked, up to today.00:50
TJ-cogitation1: If it has failed in a way that affects the  SATA controller, possibly. If you suspect a failed drive best to disconnect the SATA/IDE cable as a precaution whilst doing the installation work00:50
cogitation1TJ-:  what would you recommend I do as far as connecting cables?  I intended to disconnect that failed drive right after I burned this disc, actually.00:51
cogitation1TJ-:  brasero just said, when I cancelled:  the disc could not be ejected --please eject manually"00:52
TJ-cogitation1: It's worth starting again. Shutdown. Disconnect failed drive. Boot the Live env again, try reading the already-written disc (just in case), then try burning a fresh one if that isn't readable.00:52

cogitation1TJ-:  lol... my dumb mistake, but that's what I thought you said to do...hot-pluggable, etc01:08
cogitation1TJ-:  it seems to have recovered, possibly01:08
TJ-cogitation1: if the file-system isn't part of the essential live OS the kernel can usually cope. It depends on what has/had hooks onto the file-system/device at the time it was disconnected.01:09

bewbznice! thank you DrRoach01:36
lopxone problem I have with ubuntu is that it has stuff I don't ever need and it feels blaoted, tips? I don't want to reinstall (drunk)01:36
TJ-cchildress: what PC is it? I'm wondering if a notebook/laptop with power saving in operation01:36
DrRoachI've never had a bad experience with Linux in over 3 years01:37
jackcomwhere i must write content of ‘syntax on’, ‘set number’01:37
DrRoachbewbz: No problem!01:37
lopxbewbz: did you repartition your drive for linux :P?01:38
cogitation1TJ-:  finished swapping all drives out.. going to reboot now.  thanks again.  Keep up the good work01:38
lopxbewbz: first time I installed, I forgot and it efed up my drive. Good times.01:38
TJ-cogitation1: good luck :)01:38
cchildressTJ-: a possible cause: i have the wrong power adapter. i need the 90W version, and i have the 65W version. i think the cpu is throttling as a result. is that possible?01:38
JayBauI guess I will stay in this channel for a while :)01:38
TJ-cchildress: OK, I scrolled back! Lattitude e6510 :)01:38
cchildressyup :)01:38
Ponyboy902Would the windows boot manager option in UEFI get removed upon install of Ubuntu?01:39
TJ-cchildress: I've never checked if that happens; my Dell's do the same thing though with the boot-time warning of the wrong adapter01:39
TJ-cchildress: actually that wouldn't make sense else it'd almost imply it locks the frequency when running only on battery.... have you tried that?01:39
bewbzlopx: I'm googling repartition01:40
Ponyboy902Also would removing Ubuntu's partitions remove the GRUB option in UEFI boot as soon as i hit delete on the partition or would i have to go in manually and remove?01:40
cchildressTJ-: well, is there a way in software to raise the reported maximum frequency of reallyslowMHz?01:40
DrRoachPonyboy902: Not if you install Ubuntu using the Dual Boot option01:40
cchildressTJ-: the battery is mostly dead, but let me see01:40
TJ-cchildress: There is/used to be a package laptop-mode-tools which might be controlling the freq01:41
cchildressTJ-: no, it seems to be identical on battery01:41
bewbzlopz: i did not partition. I got rid of windows 7 altogether. it wasn't genuine and i was fed up with all the remindres to buy a real version01:41
Ponyboy902DrRoach would it remove gRUb then if i remove ubuntu's partitions or would i have to manually remove the option in UEFI01:41
cchildressTJ-: that package is still around in 15.x01:42
DrRoachPonyboy902: I don't believe so, pretty sure you'll have to remove the Ubuntu partition and edit the Windows one to take up your whole hard drive01:42
lopxbewbz: ah, I think you're ok01:42
andschwaI need to emulate `login -f root` in a script, followed by a command01:42
bewbz                   i thnk so too01:42
TJ-cchildress:  but not installed by default I don't think, so unless it is installed we can ignore it01:42
andschwaI'm using Ubuntu in a container and need /run/utmp populated so that `getlogin()` returns the user's name, not null01:43
Ponyboy902DrRoach so Windows install disc, and startup recovery and repair mbr or Reset windows and let it repartition the drives?01:43
DrRoachPonyboy902: That may not be 100% correct though, I am very confident in what I just said though01:43
cchildressTJ-: it is best not to have it, then?01:43
andschwaSince containers don't tend to use init, /run/utmp is left empty01:43
TJ-cchildress: take a look at the scripts in "/usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/"01:43
andschwa`login -f root` will populate it, but I need to follow it up with arbitrary commands (and an exit)01:44
DrRoachPonyboy902: Is your current Windows install corrupt or broken? Or do you just want to delete Ubuntu?01:44
andschwaany ideas?01:44
Ponyboy902I'm really wanting to intsall ubuntu but that main reason has me scared :P01:44
cchildressTJ-: i'm there01:44
Ponyboy902I had upgraded to windows 10 and guess what? It broke a lot of things.. I had to revert to windows 8 3 days ago01:45
Ponyboy902via recovery drive01:45
DrRoachPonyboy902: Haha I know it can be scary but you'll definitely be safe if you select the "Dual boot" option, I believe it is, I'll check now01:45
Ponyboy902DrRoach so do install alongside windows boot manager?01:45
Ponyboy902it looks like it was selected by default in the installer01:46
cchildressTJ-: i had problems with cpu frequency scaling in my other laptop running 15.04, as well. it was running an older amd cpu though so i thought maybe that made a difference.01:46
DrRoachPonyboy902: "Install them side by side, choosing between them each startup" That is the option you need01:46
DrRoachPonyboy902: Yeah that's what I have01:46
DrRoachPonyboy902: Never had a problem01:46
TJ-cchildress: I've grepped for any indication of freq control scripts - nothing. I also can't find any mention of installed packages that affect the freq. I can't image why the CPU would be limited unless some tool is choosing to do it01:47
TJ-cchildress: really? Let's see if there are any known bugs about that01:47
Ponyboy902DrRoach would anyone here be able to help me remove GRUB in the UEFI if i ever decided to remove ubuntu?01:47
cchildressTJ-: i agree - but the only way for me to tell, is to try another distro (maybe a live cd), or try windows01:47

AndroidHackerso it should be ok?04:33
desmondcan't think of anything that could go wrong, AndroidHacker04:33
wileeeAndroidHacker, Yes04:33
AndroidHackerok thanks guys04:34
AndroidHackerjust checking04:34
wileeeAndroidHacker, Probably a good sized download, is all, different base04:34
wileeede base04:34
AndroidHackeryea no problemo there04:34
wileeecool, carry on. ;)04:34
mate_1.1 g drown done total 3g04:35
wileeeAndroidHacker, I just noticed you said inside, it is a separate desktop, I think you meant that.04:36
wileeehowever they may share apps04:36
desmondmate installed "inside" the system of xubuntu sounds correct to me04:38
wileeedesmond, Only in a vm, you can't install these desktops inside each other.04:39
mate_i put mate in rasp pi04:40
wileeexubuntu de on a mate install, yes, any desktop on any install is athe same04:40
desmondthought xubuntu was the system and XFCE was the DE04:40
wileeedesmond, nothing to do with mate, but yes xfce is xubuntus bas04:41
wileeelxde=lubuntu mate is a fork of gnome 204:42
wileeeit is confusing at first, a lot to know and learn. ;)04:42

CreativeWolfheya all04:48
CreativeWolfMy user account on my boxlet is cw and by default the mail has been created as cw@mydomain.com - How do I change cw to something else please?04:48
wafflejockCreativeWolf, what's a boxlet?04:49
wafflejockCreativeWolf, typically you can just use the users panel I believe if you can't find it I'm sure I can dig up the usermod command for it04:49
CreativeWolfwafflejock, linux box04:50
wafflejockCreativeWolf, also what's CW try to keep the acryonms to a minimum04:50
CreativeWolfwafflejock, cw is my username in the server04:50
wafflejockCreativeWolf, ah gotcha my bad I just read that sentence weird04:51
wafflejockCreativeWolf, http://askubuntu.com/questions/170244/usermod-change-the-username that covers doing it at the command line if you're using ubuntu server04:51
CreativeWolfwafflejock, I created a user account cw and I've got exim installed. My email now is cw@mydomain.com which I'd like to be howl@mydomain.com04:51
wafflejockCreativeWolf, otherwise in a desktop install you can use the GUI Users app I think (I believe there's one by default)04:52
CreativeWolfwafflejock, I'd like to retain my username as "cw" but would want "howl@mydomain.com" as my email associated for this account.04:52
wafflejockhmm k I've configured postfix before but never exim04:52

xdb3916hi everyone04:56
xdb3916woow, got someone to talk04:58
wafflejockCreativeWolf, yeah sorry don't know any details on that, think I've used exim here or there to send out some e-mails via gmail, and typically you can just change the from headers on an e-mail but some servers will send those to spam, it helps if you configure SPF and DKIM for the mail server some details here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2782380/best-practices-sending-email-on-behalf-of-users04:59

wafflejockCreativeWolf, the on behalf of thing might not be a problem since it's all going to be coming from the same domain that's more if you have one mail server sending stuff for some other domain I believe05:00
CreativeWolfwafflejock, Yes one mail server multiple domains05:01

wafflejockCreativeWolf, https://wiki.debian.org/GmailAndExim4 <-- I actually had this link saved that may be useful for Exim and I generally used this guide for postfix but it took some fiddling around I couldn't just follow it straight through, still useful to learn to debug some of the things http://flurdy.com/docs/postfix/#config-secure-auth05:04
CreativeWolfwafflejock, Thanks, will take a look :)05:05
wafflejockCreativeWolf, yeah good luck, for me that was definitely a marathon but I am happy to have an e-mail server that is pretty secure and spam-assasin works well and can do all the kind of forwarding or catch all stuff you want pretty easily once it's all in place05:07

cfhowlettmate_, mint is not ubuntu.  mint is not supported here.  at all.05:24
wileeejoral, MY guess from the error it was not built although showing broken, the cache saw it as broken, an update probably would of mattered, just guessing though.05:24

auronandaceTomyWork: don't mix packages from different releases, that is a sure-fire way to create problems07:38
aurorauserand even if it was reboot would have released it anyways07:38
TomyWorkauronandace so what do i do instead? i need blkdiscard because i forgot to turn on discard for my swap partition after dd'ed everything over from my old hdd07:39
k1lTomyWork: why not making a "discard" to the swap line in fstab?07:41
TomyWorki did, does that instantly discard the entire swap space?07:41
TomyWorkit's 32 GB and it's rarely ever used up completely07:42
skittishtriggerAnyone use pugetsystems to build a server?07:42
skittishtriggerJust curious how they are.07:42
k1lTomyWork: and the swap space gets discarded on every boot. so after a reboot its done anyway07:42
TomyWorkk1l can i manually trigger that?07:42
k1lTomyWork: yes, do a swapoff and than a swapon again07:42
TomyWorkdid that already07:43
k1lTomyWork: so? dont worry07:43
auronandaceTomyWork: blkdiscard is in the package util-linux07:43
TomyWorkwhat i perceive as the symptoms of that missing discard flag is still there07:43
TomyWorkauronandace not on trusty07:43
k1lTomyWork: i dont understand that panic07:43
TomyWorkk1l my system becomes unusable as soon as swap fills even a little07:44
TomyWork100 MB into the swap and i can even free up 3 GB of memory but it still crawls07:44
TomyWorkmaybe the untrimmed swap is not the issue07:44
k1li dont think that few amount of swap is causing that even if it wanst trimmed.07:45
TomyWorkwell the SSD wouldnt slow down per partition, right?07:45
TomyWorkit would slow down globally because it's unaware of partitions07:46

skittishtriggerfor an os as awesome as ubuntu (for the primary root/boot partition) is it really that big of a gain in server performance to use ssd there?08:16
skittishtriggerassuming you are using headless and an actual server not a converted desktop08:16
skittishtriggerI ask because I am thinking of re-doing my entire server configuration next time I bring it down for maintence. And I was thinking a regular hard drive might be better for the os and use thessd for one of the game servers instead (seperating some fo them out as there are 5 runnign on one ssd atm)08:18
auronandaceskittishtrigger: i suppose it would depend on the server's function. If it involves a heavy amount of reads and writes then an ssd would wear out faster than a trraditional harddrive08:18
skittishtriggerso maybe an enterprise grade sas type hd for the os and ssds for the game/webservers/sql server and several raid sata style drives mirrored for the backup functions?08:19
skittishtriggerSorry, I am not completely new to ubuntu and servers but I am woeful lacking in the area of efficiency and proper setup of a real server.08:20
auronandaceskittishtrigger: i'm certainly no expert in server setup so perhaps the guys in #ubuntu-server can help out08:22
skittishtriggerya i was mroe curious as to opinions. Seems a lot of this is subjective on a case by case basis. BUt thanks for your input :)08:23

arcskyhello all, does anyone know how i can do my ssh login to use the windows 2008 radius/nps ?08:27
MathisenHello can someone tell me how i should do if i want to automaticly copy all the /home folders to a diffrent HD like once a day, but i dont want it to copy the files that is already there. if you understand i just want it to copy the files that are new08:29
fidel_Mathisen: check rsync08:30
ObrienDaversync will only copy new or files that have changed. i use it every day08:31
fidel_Mathisen: grsync is an UI for it - but if you are fine using the terminal - stick to it ;)08:31
MathisenObrienDave nice, will it remove stuff to ? i want to have a backup so i dont want it to 100 % clone it08:31
ObrienDaversync will remove things that are no longer in your source. if you want it to08:32
Mathiseni will do some reading, thx for the help :)08:32
ObrienDavetry grsync first. then you can copy the commands to terminal for rsync08:33
=== timothy is now known as Guest59553
MonkeyDustMathisen  i guess luckybackup uses rsync too08:34
llutzMathisen: for a nice backup solution, look at rsnapshot (based on rsync)08:34
ObrienDavei have an alias setup (several actually) ;P08:35
ObrienDavealias h2u31='sudo rsync -avs --progress --delete /home/david/ /media/david/USB003TB001/Backup/David/Sony/Vaio/VPCEB/1500GB/Xubuntu/Home/david/'08:35
ObrienDaveworks really good for daily backup08:36

rorylearner: Are you trying to use Ubuntu as a web server to host a website?09:41
learneryes rory09:42
rorylearner: What do you have, and what do you mean by not opening?09:42
MoonBurstI'm having a lot of trouble getting ubuntu to install. I'm pretty sure I'm doing this mostly right though.09:43
MoonBurstI used unetbootin to put the ISO onto a USB drive, and then at startup told it to boot from the USBHDD. But then instead of booting, it just loads windows anyway :\09:43
popeyMoonBurst: unetbootin is a bit broken for many people09:44
MoonBurstI also tried the uni usb installer09:45
jpdsMoonBurst: Tried dd?09:45
MoonBurstdd? no. I haven't seen that yet09:45
learnerrory , i have used windows before working on the linux, i used to download a free template for website but not for the purpose of hosting. But now am in a situation to download a free template website and i need to host that in hosting server. so, i just downloaded a free template website,  its not even opening in firefox web browser.  can you say what the problem is??09:46
MindSparkhi, guys I am running trusty and I am trying to get the mysql client to run using auto-rehashing/completion. For some reason neither adding auto-rehash in the config nor calling it from the commandline using --auto-rehash or issuing the \# and rehash commands from inside mysql are working09:46
rorylearner: What type of file is it?09:46
MindSparkis there a known issue for that?09:46
wileeeMoonBurst, Your doing this is windows right?09:46
MoonBurstYeah. Trying to escape windows 10 from their new business idea about no privacy.09:46
learnerrory : It's a .zip file09:47
wileeeMoonBurst, Cool, just making sure others know.09:47
MoonBurstIt's a shame too, aside from that privacy issue, I really liked windows 1009:47
rorylearner: What happens when you try to extract the files from it?09:47
rorylearner: You can't open a zip file directly in Firefox... a zip file is an archive containing other files. Right click it and extract, or double click it and drag the files out09:48
wileeeMoonBurst, Computers have a boot menu that is for single sessions, with a key press as if you were going to the bios09:48
MoonBurstyeah, bios is del. I press f12 to get to boot options09:48
MoonBurstthen from there I tell it to boot from usb hdd, but it sort of ignores me09:49
k1lMoonBurst: usb-hdds cant be booted in most times as live systems since they are seen as hdds from bios. use a usb pendrive or a dvd09:49
MoonBurstIt's closer to a pendrive anyway, it's a microsd card in a transflash09:49
wileeeMoonBurst, pendrivelinux has several windows usb loaders, you might check the sum of the iso and what you load, all can be done from windows I believe.09:49
learnerrory  yeah, i have extracted and took out the files too, and it has .html file . so i want to run that file, when i try to run the .html file in firefox , its not opening. am using ubuntu09:50
wileee!sum | MoonBurst09:50
rorylearner: Do you see an error?09:50
rorylearner: If you're in Firefox and you do Ctrl-O (open) and browse to the file and open it that way, does it work?09:50
k1lMoonBurst: it doesnt matter what it is at the end of 12 adapters :) it counts what the bios will see it as :)09:50
k1lMoonBurst: regular 2GB usb pendrives are known to work :)09:50

kokutrory: well it never happened to me until now and i won't tolerate it10:14
k1lGuest84133: a search for "1ee8:0013 ubuntu" brings some italian ubuntu forums and mailinglists. maybe you find the solution there10:14
Guest84133k1l, maybe it could help a lot if you tell me how to use modeswitch10:15
k1lGuest84133: for mobile data usb sticks, you sometimes (in most cases) need to bring the stick into the "mobile data" mode. so it is not seen as a regular usb stick. that is called modeswitch10:15
Guest84133k1l, I see, so what is the syntax of modeswitch10:16
JobbeSo I've configured a pxe boot server, with multiple install options. One of them is Debian, which i have configured to work with a preseed file. Works flawless. Now. I've gone ahead and configured the same for ubuntu, the intaller works, no problem. But here is my problem. On debian i needed to include a firmware package in initrd.gz, so i unpacked it, created the firmware dir and put in the .deb file, then10:16
Jobberepackages it and put back in the pxe dir, debian installs fine without asking for the firmware. But when i do the same procedure on ubuntu, it does not work.10:16
rorylearner: Can you try to open it using the terminal and maybe if there's some error you will see it. Do the following:10:17
rorylearner: first make sure firefox is closed with "killall firefox"10:17
rorylearner: and then open the file with (e.g.) "firefox /home/rory/Desktop/photoprowess/index.html" (obviously your path will be different)10:17
k1lGuest84133: that depends on the exact hardware. i dont know that for every mobile data stick. so please see the italian sites who have done this with that italian hardware stick already.10:17
Guest84133k1l, ok10:18
k1lGuest84133: http://forum.ubuntu-it.org/viewtopic.php?t=40323310:18

Jobbethis is the firmware package https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/firmware-realtek10:18
Jobbecould it be that ubuntu simply does not reconise this package ?10:18
Guest84133k1l, but I ask: why is it so complicated. why I can't activate it direct from the applet of network manager?10:18
Jobbeit's ubuntu 14.04 btw10:18

Guest84133k1l, but the thing is: if I reboot, I connect automatically. why?10:20
learnerrory yes i have typed, it shows firefox : no process found10:21
TJ-Jobbe: when building the initrd.img, initramfs-tools use the function manaula_add_modules() in "/usr/share/initramfs-tools/hook-functions" - that code implies the initrd.im needs both the kernel module and firmware. Did you also ensure the kernel module was included and loaded via "/lib/modules" ?10:21
Guest84133k1l, I mean, I reboot, I do wvdial and everything goes10:21
rorylearner: OK fine that just means firefox is properly closed. Now use the other command I gave.10:21
Guest84133k1l, but It's not very practicle to reboot every time I need to connect10:21
learnerrory sure10:21
Jobbe TJ- I'm not sure about that10:22
Black_Shadowas you can connect to a server ???10:23
JobbeTJ-: how would i go about and check that ?10:23
Jobbedammit, i gotta run for a sec, got a server down - TJ- thanks, I'll try read up on that10:24
TJ-Jobbe: in the initrd, the modules to load are listed in "conf/modules"10:25
k1lGuest84133: could be a firmware issue on disconnect. please see the guys who have experience with that exact hardware10:26
Guest84133k1l, my opinion is, if "enable mobile broadband" would be active by default, everything would be fine10:26

BluesKajHey folks10:37
learnerrory the command is "killall firefox" right ?10:37
Guest84133TJ-, i still have usb_modeswitch10:37
rorylearner: killall firefox is just to make sure firefox is closed10:37
rorylearner: and then open the file with (e.g.) "firefox /home/rory/Desktop/photoprowess/index.html" (obviously your path will be different)10:37
k1lCedric_: come on. gksudo vs gksu10:37
Cedric_rory: I just want to add icon in the unity bar that will be executed as root10:37
learnerrory okay, i'l do it now, pls wait10:37
TJ-Guest84133: Does this command report that device ID? "tar -tzf /usr/share/usb_modeswitch/configPack.tar.gz | grep '1ee8:0013'  "10:38
k1lCedric_: you should be a lot more aware of what you do and read when it comes to root priviledges10:38
ivo34hello I am followind these instructions: http://wiki.winehq.org/Patching  in order to patch a wine installation...but the second part which tells an easy method to revert patches uses git show is there a package needed to get that working?  because it a bash unknown command for my terminal10:38
Cedric_k1l: here's what I want, I want to add icon to this Unity bar, that when I clicked on it, it will be executed as root10:39
roryivo34: you would need to install "git"10:39
Cedric_k1l: not sure what is not clear with the concern :)10:39
roryivo34: What is the complete message you get on the terminal when you try to run the command?10:39
k1lCedric_: and i tell you the 10th time now, that its not gksudo anymore but gksu now.10:39
Cedric_k1l: try in your terminal, gksu or gksudo both works10:40

Cedric_k1l: gksudo is part of the gksu package isn't it?10:40
ivo34command not found in english sorry10:41
roryivo34: yes, you need to install the "git" package (sudo apt-get install git)10:41
ivo34I am using lxc10:41
k1lCedric_: did you change the file in /usr/share/applications/?10:41
roryivo34: you can't run "git" without having "git" installed.10:41
roryivo34: I don't really know what to say/10:42
Cedric_k1l: gksudo subl and gksu subl both works in terminal, but that's not what I want to happen, I want to add shortut in my unity bar that will be executed as root by default10:42
ivo34so I need to install git in the container aswell10:42
roryivo34: Yes.10:42
k1lCedric_: did you pin and unpin it afterwards on the launcher bar?10:42
Cedric_k1l: yes, tried gksudo and gksu10:42

Ahtiubuntu608, nope11:01

AhtiInfact, doing it from live mode allows you greater partitioning control.11:05

Ubuntu908I think I want to use a logical drive. I'll have to check youtube or something to find how though.12:14
Ubuntu908the problem with ubuntu is I have no idea what I'm doing.12:14
Ubuntu908the good part about ubuntu is I learn what I'm doing12:15
x4w3Ubuntu908: :) it's very easy....12:20
Ubuntu908I'm hoping I can do it without too many reboots. Since as of late, trying to get ubuntu up and running has been a huge pain in the butt12:21
x4w3Ubuntu908: if you can't use whole partition in the disk, try to create manually partitions...it isnt difficult.12:21
Ubuntu908I'd like to cut off about 30 gigs for just the OS and run all my programs from my other drive12:22
x4w3you can install where u want, primary or extended.12:22
Ubuntu908SSD for the OS, HDD for the rest12:22

Ubuntu908Yes and no.12:23
x4w3:) you have installed into sdd more things...isnt it?12:23
Ubuntu908I got them at the same time, but installed all my non system files, or as many as I could onto the HDD12:23
Ubuntu908but my drivers, and I think my antivirus items are on the SSD12:24

Ubuntu908is gparted daemon in ubuntu, or is that a seperate program?12:31
x4w3let me check it12:32

Ubuntu908Can I do that with the demo ubuntu?12:35
x4w3let me check if exists by default other one12:35
OerHeksit is standard on the live iso12:35
Ubuntu908because it locked me out of my HDD files before when I was in the demo12:36
OerHeksnot sure why gparted is removed after installation ..12:36
livcdx4w3: i did but there has not been any effect...but hey this is more connected to vagrant12:36
x4w3livcd: paste your full command please...12:37
x4w3Ubuntu908: with live cd gparted is by default and you can use it, why you can mount your data partition?12:37
Ubuntu908I'm not quite sure what you mean, but I'll try and explain the situatiuon a bit better.12:39
Ubuntu908When I try to install ubuntu from the thumbdrive normally, outside of the demo it says I can't due to partitions. and when I try to do it from in the demo version, it basically says I need to wipe everything.12:40
livcdx4w3: vagrant ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL12:41
Ubuntu908I actually thought about just moving all my data to the HDD, unplugging it, and installing that way, wiping my windows out in the process12:41
Ubuntu908I mean, that way by unplugging it, it can't really be knocked out.12:41
x4w3Ubuntu908: excuse i'm trying to understand, i'm spanish....12:43
Ubuntu908That's plenty fine. I can't really be upset over that.12:44
Ubuntu908Well, not reaonably anyway.12:44

AleksaI mean12:55
AleksaOerHeks, I cannot do ssh to my PC, unless I open 22 port manually on my router.12:55
AleksaI'm writing a tutorial, but I cannot figure it out :(12:56
llutzAleksa: open the port (use portforwarding), connect to your pc using "ssh -X user@host", done12:57
OerHeksAleksa, so you CAN open port 22 .. why do you ask for an other way trough th http port ( 80) ??12:57
livcdx4w3: no difference12:58
BluesKajAleksa:  this shows a couple of options for X forwarding  http://askubuntu.com/questions/35512/what-is-the-difference-between-ssh-y-trusted-x11-forwarding-and-ssh-x-u12:59
AleksaOerHeks, in case on the other side (person using pc i consider remote) does not know how to open port 22 on router.12:59
AleksaMaybe to set SSH to listen on 80?12:59
llutzAleksa: why would port 80 on a router should be open?12:59
Aleksallutz, ok so, what port is usually opened on router? I thought it's 80 for http, classic internet surfing13:00
llutzAleksa: none, you don't need to open port 80 to reach websites OUTSIDE13:01
llutzAleksa: normal soho-routers shouldn't have any open ports. they allow all outbound, nothing inbound13:01
x4w3livcd: sudoers it's very easy, but try with new user --> http://askubuntu.com/questions/7477/how-can-i-add-a-new-user-as-sudoer-using-the-command-line13:01
llutzAleksa: if you don't want to open any ports, use a reverse-ssh-tunnel13:02
=== michaela is now known as Guest84202
x4w3livcd: remember that all members of the group admin, are in Ubuntu by default allowed to use sudo, so the easiest way is to add the user account to the admin group.13:03
x4w3but try with new user better :)13:03
Aleksallutz, thank you a lot! I will google it :)13:04
=== thomas_ is now known as Guest35773
Aleksallutz, one last question: According to one tutorial I am following right now, it is possible to access to PC that is behind router (NAT). It's done with 'ssh -R anyport:localhost:22 user:his_ip'13:10
Aleksaof course that command is supposed to be run on remote pc13:10
ash__hey, i was trying to install LAMP with tasksel and suddenly all my programs started to uninstall ... any idea why?13:11
Aleksaand on source pc, I need to type ssh localhost -p 'the_same_port'13:11
llutzAleksa: sure, thats why it is called "reverse tunnel"13:11
Aleksathe question is: Would all this work if the "source PC" is also behind the router?13:11
Aleksawould this reverse tunnel work with both PC's being behind the router?13:12
=== Tsunami1 is now known as Guest72107
ash__all means almost all .... browsers, ubuntu-desktop...13:12
BluesKajAleksa:  yes it should13:12
llutzAleksa: the same router? then it makes no sense, the can connect direct.13:12
Aleksallutz, not the same. Each PC has it's own router13:12
gnmkwhat is the best way to install .deb packages from directory at boot time ?13:13
llutzAleksa: works too, just one of the router has to allow incoming ssh-connections (port forwarding)13:13
jpdsgnmk: Why13:13
jpdsgnmk: Why would you want to do that?13:13
wtm_iphoneAny one knows how to play videos with framebuffer? Mplayer cannot open the framebuffer(with or without sudo, both cannot)13:13
Aleksallutz, what if neither router allows it?13:13
llutzAleksa: you're lost13:13
Aleksareverse tunneling works on remote pc whose ports on router are closed13:14
gnmkjpds: because there are some requirement which will install basic ubutu rootfs and need to add some packages later .13:14
wtm_iphoneBut my framebuffer device works fine, I can use fbterm on it13:14
Aleksaso, at least one port must be opened?13:14
llutzAleksa: yes,13:14
gnmkjpds: its basically container .13:14
Aleksais there some kind of double reverse tunneling?13:14
jpdsgnmk: You're going to want to look at cloud-init and see how it does stuff13:15
llutzAleksa: i doubt because one side always has to be able to receive inbound connections13:15
gnmkjpds: ok let me see.13:16

k1l_ubuntu824: but you could do it from gparted too. you first need to right click on the sda2 and check "unmount". then rightclick on the sda2 again and resize it (shrink it). then yu need to move sda3 to the left side so all unallocated space is at the end. then you can create the sda4 ext4 partition.13:56

Merdrodsapath: But I just wanna thank you16:43
sapathMerdrod, NP. This is what opensource community is all about.16:44
squintysapath,  did you run that script that Actionparsnip said to download?16:44
OerHekssapath, if that script from Actionparsnip didn; t work, remove corrupted lists and try again:  sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/* && sudo apt-get update16:45
squintysapath,  it clears out the sources list cache and the attempts another update and upgrade. if it worked then you shouldn't see any errors16:45
OerHeksif the keys were bad, you would have a huge issue.16:45
sapathsquinty, I did. It just takes me into an infinite loop of apt-get update an and apt-get upgrade16:45
squintysapath, try OerHeks script to see if it cleared up the sources first16:46
OerHeksthis command is part of that script too, so i wonder ..16:47
sapathOerHeks, squinty , i think this might working. On way.16:47
OerHeksthat script from Actionparsnipperforms several updates and install -f commands, so that is oke16:47
squintysapath,  that will update your sources listings.  if no errors then try upgrade  sudo apt-get upgrade16:48
sapathOerHeks, Doesn't work.16:48
scornflakesis there any way to make a mount in /etc/fstab not "required"? like if it can't do it, just quit and not bother waiting for it?16:49
sapathOerHeks, http://pastebin.com/x1kB45XG16:49
squintysapath,  probably should paste the output from update to pastebin again then so others can see what is going wrong.  that last post had some spurious launchpad and ppa's i believe16:49

squintysapath,  you also need to pastebin  the output of  cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*17:00
OerHeksuse ppa-purge to remove them and return to the original packages, else seek help by the ppa maintainer17:00

squintysapath,   if you have Synaptics package manager, you can also use that to disable/remove ppa's17:05
Amozsapath, one of your sourcelists are malformed17:05
sapathsquinty, the whole point is installing synaptic17:05
sapathGuys, what could be a simple solution to my problem.17:05
squintysapath,   hah  ok   so much for that idea then  lol17:05
squintyuse ppa purge17:06
ubottuTo disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html17:06

NectarIf I install a new ssd, so if i wanted to remove ubuntu would i be left with the bootloader issue. or is non of this necessary?17:35
AmozNectar, if you have a separate disk to use, that would solve the issue17:36
AmozNectar, just be very sure to *not* install the bootloader on the windows disk and ubuntu on the other disk17:37
NectarAmoz> Is that all done in the gui Installation setup?17:37
AmozNectar, can you plug out the windows-disk during install?17:37
auronandaceNectar: you can choose where to install the bootloader in the gui setup17:37
NectarAmoz: no17:38
Nectarbtw, I dont have a seperate ssd, yey.17:38
AmozNectar, just make sure you detect which disk is sda and which one is sdb, and choose to install bootloader on the correct one17:38
AmozNectar, this is all under the assumption you have to disks ^17:39
NectarI have one, but i will upgrade to two if it makes it easier.17:39

adityayes for u17:54
Nectarok. thats.17:54
auronandaceDammitJim: maybe it would be better to have a script that runs after updates that checks how many kernels are installed and removes the oldest ones leaving x amount installed at any given time17:54
JayBauNectar: yes, in my case, I installed Win7 first, then cleared up disk for what I need for Ubuntu17:55
auronandaceDammitJim: i know fedora usually limits it to 3 most recent17:55
DammitJimthanks auronandace17:55
DammitJimshamurai, does your link take care of that?17:55
NectarJayBau: Im doing the same.17:55
shamuraiYes there is a section to configure autoremove after updates17:56
DammitJimI don't see anything on it about removing older kernels17:56
DammitJimshamurai, do you mean AutocleanInterval?17:56
shamuraiDammitJim, if you look at the file they referrence there are comments for configuring autoremove17:57

Koyaanis1i tried installing ubuntu on my raid 0... i just selected the drive, then it gave me some bootloader fatal error, and asked me to install it somewhere else.. i choose the STRIPE again, then i rebooted and nothing happens18:32
Koyaanis1what do18:33
stevessssso.. any version of ubuntu defaults to awesome or blackbox or wmaker or somethign light, and has default applications like emacs-athena and gvim+athena and plain x11 apps?18:33
stevessssand maybe default browser thats cmd-line based with webkit.. like uzbl.. somethign that gives pure unix experience18:33
stevessssinstead of kde/gnome windows-like experience18:34
shamuraiKoyaanis1, whats type of raid controller are you using?18:34
Koyaanis1i dont know18:34
shamuraiIs it onboard or and addon card?18:34
OerHeksstevessss, nope, no such iso, start with the mini iso as base18:34
ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want.  The installer is text based (rather than graphical as used on the Desktop DVD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD18:34
Koyaanis1i only connected my 2 SSDs to the SATA 3 ports..18:34
Koyaanis1oh yeah18:34
Koyaanis1some intel shit18:35
shamuraiOk so its onboard what model motherboard do you have?18:35
shamuraiOr even manufature?18:35
shamuraiHonestly I wouldn't use the onboard marvel controller. It doesn't support trim for your ssd.18:36
OerHeksKoyaanis1, why raid0 ? i would use lvm18:37
Koyaanis1i dont know what lvm is :(*18:37
ubottuTips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto18:37
shamuraiI also wouldn't use software raid with ssd. Oerheks is right, look into lvm.18:38
Koyaanis1so i need an alternate install iso18:39
Koyaanis1so LVM is just a software raid_18:42
Koyaanis1Just to make sure here.. I also have another 3 TB HDD that is currently encrypted, there wont be any problems with its data when i use LVM right_18:43
OerHeksno, logical volume managment. i thought lvm + lvm/encrypted is an option during install ?18:43
Koyaanis1yes it is OerHeks18:43
Koyaanis1but i didnt know what the hell it was so i ignored it18:43
shamuraiAlso to solve your grub error the problem is likely that grub is detecting the raid as /dev/mapper instead of /dev/mappper/name18:44

tgm4883masterkhan: I would think removing the gpu drivers and removing entries from xorg.conf would do that19:59
masterkhansquinty, i don't want to revert to defauly ubuntu - just want to set the graphics configuration back to defauly - can you do that via grub recovery?20:00

mjuszczakHow can I tell Ubuntu to use a different version of ruby than /usr/bin/ruby? I have ruby installed in /opt/rubies but when I symlink /usr/bin/ruby -> /opt/rubies/foo/bin/ruby, any time apt upgrades something that depends on ruby, it reinstalls the system ruby packages and updates the symlnk. Is there an alternatives solution?20:50
wileeejwash, it not like a video where you have control in the browser, never heard of what you want.20:50
TJ-mjuszczak: use update-alternatives20:50
wileeewhy would the advertiser allow that if they could make sure you hear it.20:51
kelledinBluesKaj: 15.04 64-bit20:51
mjuszczakTJ-: I see that, but it doesn't look like there's ruby support in there? Or am I missing something.20:52
Gotolei-laptopBashing-om: http://pastebin.com/19KqjkyV20:53
BluesKajkelledin:  then te regular nvidia 340 recommended driver in additional drivers should work for you, there's no reason to use xedgers version which eventaully breaks due to poor support20:53
kelledinBluesKaj: i suppose it might matter that it's booting via UEFI...but again, I wouldn't expect startx to work either if it's a UEFI compatibility20:54
TJ-mjuszczak: as you're adding non-package-managed software you'd need to configure it manually. You might need to create a 'diversion' for the current "/usr/bin/ruby" too, so that when the package is upgraded it doesn't replace the "/usr/bin/ruby" symbolic link20:54
kelledinBluesKaj: and the default 340 version did the same thing.  hence why i went with the edgers PPA20:55
mjuszczakHow does that work? I don't mind RTFM but is there a direction?20:55
TJ-mjuszczak: see https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ap-pkg-diversions.html20:56

amrX2KHi Fellas, I have a problem with my internet connection. Now the internet is working fine, but when I try to ping any website or ip even its telling me "Network is unreachable"21:09
Bashing-omGotolei: ^^ we are here to get ya the driver and nvidia-settings installed ( maybe we must inplicitly remove BumbleBee ?) .21:09
amrX2KI've tried to disable the firewall with "sudo ufw disable" and reboot nothing changed.21:09
TJ-amrX2K: Sounds like a firewall is blocking ICMP echo/reply packets21:10
amrX2K@TJ-, Sounds correct, but I am not a networking guy to make sure its from the firewall since I disabled it ?21:11
GotoleiBashing-om, i have the driver and nvidia-settings installed. i'm just trying to clean up the resulting mess21:11
Gotoleilike how now when X starts, it's like 1024x76821:11
TJ-amrX2K: How about a firewall in the Internet gateway router?21:11
amrX2KAlso whenever it ping, it send "Request timeout for icmp_seq21:11
Gotolei640X480 *21:12
amrX2K@TJ- will check it right now.21:12
Gotoleiwith no other options :|21:12
amrX2KIts on a minimum security.21:12
Bashing-omGotolei: :) I am concerned that BumbleBee was installed from PPA, and we need to purge BumbleBee and remove the PPA .21:13
TJ-amrX2K: Try this and I'll watch for incoming packets: "ping -c 5 iam.tj"21:14
amrX2K@TJ- done.21:15
amrX2Kamrx ~ $ ping -c 5 iam.tj21:15
amrX2Kconnect: Network is unreachable21:15
TJ-amrX2K: Are you using IPv6 ... I think you've got a problem with IPv6 vs IPv421:16
ubuntu8If I make a logical partition, can I put ubuntu there if I already have 4 primary partitions? Since I don't have extra storage items to plug in, moving things around to try and lower the number is a bit difficult21:16
Bashing-omamrX2K: TJ- " ping -c 3 iam.tj >> 3 packets transmitted, 3 received, 0% packet loss, time 2002ms21:16
amrX2K@Bashing-om how did you know about those 3 packets ?21:18
Bashing-omubuntu8: In the leagacy partitioning scheme, there is a maximum of 4 primary partitions, one of which may be an 'extended' partition, In this 'extended' partiton one may have 128 'logical' partitions. And yes ubuntu is happy to install to logical partitions.21:18
amrX2K@TJ- Tell me the start of the robe and I'll tackle a little bit with it and let you know whats going on. but where do I start ?21:18
Bashing-omamrX2K: That is the return in my terminal, to show there is no problem at TJ- 's distant end, The problem is in your house .21:19
TJ-amrX2K: your current connection is Comcast IPv6 ... if you're trying to ping an IPv4 and your network isn't configure for dual-stack, or needs a tunnel, that would explain your problemsw21:19
Xeno72@ubuntu8: No problem. Ubuntu can be installed that way (unlike windows; it can be installed in primary partitions only).21:19
Gotoleiturns out bumblebee is in universe repo21:19
ubuntu8Then I think I'm doing something wrong. I told it to install on one, but it's not working quite right. perhaps I didn't make it large enough21:19
k1l_Gotolei: bumblebee is old. nvidia-prime is the new one21:19
diaGotolei, http://askubuntu.com/questions/6033/enabling-nvidia-driver-messes-up-splash-screen21:20
amrX2KThat makes more sense since last time this problem occured I was playing with tunneling!!21:20
Gotoleinvidia also seems to think 304 is the new one21:20
Gotoleiremoving bumblebee, anyways21:20
k1l_Gotolei: what ubuntu?21:20
TJ-amrX2K: aha! now we start to make progress... users! :D21:20
Gotoleixubuntu 14.0421:20
amrX2K@TJ-, indeed, Thanks man21:20
Xeno72@ubuntu8: 20 GB is large enough in any case. For further question you have to explain what was / is not working.21:20
k1l_Gotolei: the latest one in 14.04 is nvidia-34621:21
amrX2K@TJ-, @Bashing-om, - will restore what I did and keep you updated.21:21
Bashing-omGotolei: Is Bumblebee on your system installed from PPA ?21:21
Gotoleiwhich is what i have installed21:21
Gotoleino bashing it turns out it's not ppa21:21
ubuntu8I have it at 18.5 GB, but when I run the installer it keeps telling me it won't because I have 4 primarys. which I do, but since I was trying to put it on a logical drive, I thought it wouldn't be an issue.21:22
Gotoleibut i've removed it, and the system is still displaying at 640*480 after reboot21:22
Bashing-omGotolei: :), then we should be home free, Is system updated now ? And maybe now should do some house cleaning ?21:22
EriC^^ubuntu8: you can have 3 primaries and 1 extended with many logical ones21:23
Xeno72@ubuntu8: 18.5 GB works without any doubt. Do you have a swap partition? This is needed unless you have a lot of GB RAM.21:23
joaocfernandesHi everyone what is the best solution for 3d accelerated graphics (intel integrated) on a i7-3520m ?21:23
Gotoleithe system displaying at resolutions unseen since the 80s aren't what i'd call "home free"21:23
Bashing-omubuntu8: Show the channel what the situation is by pastebin the output of ' sudo fdisk -lu ' . The story will be told .21:23
diaGotolei, http://askubuntu.com/questions/6033/enabling-nvidia-driver-messes-up-splash-screen21:23
ubuntu8I don't think I have a swap partition. But I have 12 gigs of ram, so I do have a decent amount21:24
diaGotolei, try putting your res in grub21:24
ubuntu8I actually moved back to windows to try and move things, just because I don't fully understand ubuntu yet, and I didn't want to break something21:24
ubuntu8I'll go over to the ubuntu demo and run the command21:25
Bashing-omubuntu8: We break ubuntu - we learn - we get to keep the pieces and put it back together .21:25
ubuntu8I mean, I don't want to break something and lose my music and whatnot.21:25
Xeno72@ubuntu8: Yes 12 GB RAM is fine. Please note EriCs input because of number of partitions: 3 primarties and 1 extended containing the logicals. If you have really 4 partitions, you have to delete one.21:25
Xeno72@ubuntu8 really 4 primaries I meant.21:26
Bashing-omubuntu8: The beauty of ubuntu, is that if you do not get wild with 'sudo' You will not break Windows, or your files !21:26
doctorlyHow can I map a specific key code to a different key in Ubuntu 14.04. I am having a hard time, I need to map ESC to my SEARCH key.21:27
EriC^^what do you mean by search key?21:27
Xeno72@ubuntu8: Please note you have to make a backup ALWAYS FIRST when you change something in partitions or like that! Really always. Please note if you do not make a backup your files seem to be ... worthless.21:27
EriC^^is it an fn+key ?21:28
doctorlyEriC^^: I mean a physical search key21:28
EriC^^ubuntu8: can you paste sudo parted -l as Bashing-om suggested? it would help immensly21:28
GotoleiBashing-om, ubuntu8 but if you have the audacity to update a driver then expect everything to break21:28
doctorlyEriC^^: I know it's code and need to map it to ESC21:29
Gotoleigranted that requires sudo21:29
Gotoleior at least root pass21:29
EriC^^doctorly: xmodmap -e "keycode <ESC keycode>=<search keycode"21:29
EriC^^doctorly: use xev to get ESC's keycode21:29
Jordan_Uubuntu8: This has been said already, but to reiterate and clarify: You can only have 4 primary partitions. If you want to have logical partitions then one of those primary partitions must be an extended partition. You cannot keep all 4 of your existing primary partitions if you want to add another partition, of any type. This is not technically correct, but may get the idea across: You can can have either 4 primary ...21:30
Jordan_U... partitions and no logical partitions, or 3 primary partitions and any number of logical partitions.21:30
doctorlyEriC^^: Is the first keycode just the word 'keycode'21:30
EriC^^doctorly: yeah21:30
doctorlyEriC^^: could you send that one more time, I actually don't have page up right now, sorry21:31
Bashing-omGotolei: But in all honesty .. A proprietary driver is not ubuntu . It is tacked on to what is ubuntu . We just work with what we have to work with .21:31
Gotoleiunder no circumstances is 640*480 acceptable for a 1600*900 screen21:32
EriC^^doctorly: xmodmap -e "keycode <ESC keycode>=<search keycode>"21:32
Gotoleikinda weird though. plymouth displays fine, login screen displays fine, but once it hits the desktop the screen shrinks down21:33

EriC^^doctorly: no problem21:33
=== schildwaechter is now known as Guest2926
Bashing-omGotolei: Yeah ! Granted, but that resolution is a product of a non-ubuntu driver. A very clever coder makes it work; we have to make it work better ,21:34
Gotoleican't even get mousepad open on this POS21:34
* TJ- suspects the nvidia kernel shim isn't loaded21:35
Gotoleiwhere is xorg.log, it's not in /var/log apparently21:35
TJ-Gotolei: can you access a raw Virtual Terminal (VT) without the X server ( Ctrl+Alt+F2 for VT1) ?21:35
Bashing-omGotolei: Bios has a graphics driver, grub has it's graphics driver, the kerenl has a driver, and now we are loading the GUI and trying to load up the GUI's driver .21:35
TJ-Gotolei: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log*" ... if there's a file ends ".old" that is the likely location of the failed attempt to start with the proper resolution21:36
Gotoleishould i just pastebin the whole thing then b/c i have no idea what i'm looking for21:37

Gotolei-laptopok so what do those mean in english21:40
JOWCan anyone give me a good linux/ubuntu beginners chat21:41
Gotolei-laptopi get that it's switching the resolutions there but i don't see a why21:41
k1l_what video card was that again? seems like the issue is the switching form the nvidia card to the intel CPU video driver.21:41
TJ-Gotolei: those mode changes separated by about 26 seconds... was that whilst the driver was trying and failing to log-in?21:41
ubuntu8J0W, I think this is the beginners chat.21:41
bprompt!ot | JOW  maybe this one21:41
ubottuJOW  maybe this one: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!21:41

k1l_JOW: this channel here is free ubuntu support by volunteers from the ubuntu community.21:42
squintyyes here21:42
Bashing-omTJ-: Gotolei I need to be away for a bit, I be back soonest .21:45
TJ-k1l_: Chuckle-worthy logging:  "[    32.004] (II) NVIDIA(0): Built-in logo is bigger than the screen."21:45
GotoleiTJ-, k1l_ and whoever else: as said before it displays fine at logon, after putting the pass in it changes res21:46
k1l_Gotolei: the starting stuff doesnt load 3d drivers. after login its the first time it needs 3d drivers. but it seems to want to switch to the intel card (which is fine for the hybrid cards) but it changes the resolution.21:47
Jordan_Uubuntu8: You cannot make a logical partition if you already have 4 primary partitions (unless one of those 4 primary partitions is also an extended partition, which from your question I am assuming is not the case).21:48
k1l_Gotolei: so i guess there is still some issue with the driver so its not properly making the switch21:48
Gotolei-laptopmight just reinstall at this point21:48
Gotolei-laptopit's only gotten an order of magnitude worse since i got onto this channel21:48
k1l_please show the command output of "pastebinit <( dpkg -l 'nvidia*' )"21:49
TJ-Gotolei: I suspect the issue is when the system switches from the Intel to Nvidia GPU, since "[    31.917] (II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 640 x 480"21:50
Gotolei-laptopi still don't get what that means21:51
Gotolei-laptopare the intel drivers broken as well now?21:51
TJ-Gotolei: show us "pastebinit /etc/X11/xorg.conf"21:51
k1l_nvidia-settings is 331. there is a 346 one in the backports repo21:51
kelledinok, so now it comes down to this: what triggers lightdm to insist that "the system is running in low-graphics mode"?21:52
TJ-Gotolei: That PC has a hybrid (think cost-saving) graphics hardware. It uses a single low-power GPU (Inel) to drive the monitor outputs. When more intensive video output is required the system is supposed to switch instantly to the Nvidia GPU, but the output is still routed through the Intel's outputs. This is why the Bumblebee/Prime 'kludge' is required - to handle the hardware switching between the 221:52
Gotolei-laptopbumblebee which i had before, yes21:53
TJ-Gotolei: OK, xorg.conf  looks fine.21:53
kelledini just went through a complete reinstall, booted with systemd.unit=multi-user.target, installed nvidia-340, ran "nvidia-xconfig", and rebooted...and it's right back to there21:53
Gotolei-laptopbefore the entire system was running fine on intel, and i only had to enable the nvidia gpu for games21:53
Gotolei-laptopand it would deactivate afterwards21:54
Pop-TartHi! I recently got an Ubuntu VPS, and I'm liking it very much. I tried to make a SSH tunnel using ssh -D 8080 user@my.vps.ip.addre.ss, and I configured Firefox to use it as a proxy server for all protocols, but when I try to go to a website, I get an error: Secure Connection Failed. I haven't found anything after a quick Google search, any suggestions?21:54
TJ-Gotolei: Yes. Bumblebee is the name of the open-source project to manage these "Optimus" hybrid GPU hardware solutions. nvidia-prime is Nvidia's implementation and the preferred way of doing it now21:54
kelledinand i'm now 100% certain it's FOS, because it even flashed the nvidia logo before it gave me the "low graphics" dialog21:54
Gotolei-laptopi have nvidia-prime installed, but evidently it's not working21:55
TJ-kelledin: look at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old" for clues - that *should* be the log created when the X server tried to start in high-res mode21:55
TJ-Gotolei: So far I can't see any indications of a major problem in the log. However, I've always stayed away from these Optimus systems due to the complexity of the software drivers, so not 100% sure I'd spot a clue if it were in front of me21:56
Gotolei-laptopi don't have the patience for this, this install's getting old anyways21:57
EriC^^Gotolei-laptop: did you install the nvidia-prime package?21:58
Gotoleiit's been installed, rebooted, still broken21:59
EriC^^did you check the configuration program?21:59
Gotoleiwhat configuration program21:59
TJ-EriC^^: log's look fine. The issue appears to be that the nvidia driver is initialising wth 640x480 since there's no output for it to read EDID from21:59
EriC^^open the dash and type nvidia21:59
TJ-Gotolei: "nvidia-settings"21:59

Gotoleiassuming there's someone here that actually knows what they're talking about regarding optimus22:01
EriC^^that's pretty far fetched22:01
OerHeksGotolei, howecome you have nvidia-settings 331.20-0ubuntu8 and driver 304 and 346 ... ?22:01
Pop-TartNectar: add screenfetch to your .bashrc22:01
Nectarjust "screenfetch"22:02
Gotoleibecause this channel in general, i just purged everything nvidia* like half an hour ago22:02
Pop-TartOpen .bashrc with a text editor, and append 'screenfetch' to the bottom, no quotes.22:02
Pop-TartWhen you open your terminal, screenfetch should run automatically.22:02
Nectarill try. thanks22:02
kelledinTJ-: all I saw were Xorg.failsafe.* logs22:02
kelledinwhich all detailed fallback attempts (which used nouveau)22:03
SuperLagI don't understand how RDP can work into a box when you're remote, but a person sitting at the keyboard gets a black screen with a "No screens found" error in the Xorg log, and the Nvidia driver unloads.22:03
kelledinhowever, IF I reboot, go back to multi-user.target, and run startx from the console...I get a proper X screen22:04
kelledinfrom which I can then view /var/log/Xorg.0.log22:04
Pop-TartAnyone have ideas on why my SSH tunnel isn't working?22:04
TJ-Gotolei: Does nvidia-settings show you something like this? http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-tzkJfRoEUv0/UzPxLPdSMEI/AAAAAAAAR98/_BH6cZ5f-18/s1600/ubuntu14.04-nvidia-settings-prime.png22:04
kelledinand verify that it has successfully loaded the "nvidia" driver22:04
OerHekssudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall # is so much easier on 15.0422:05
TJ-Gotolei: that's reassuring, confirms settings sees the Prime facility22:06
kelledinso either the nvidia driver only fails when started from lightdm (which then stupidly wipes the relevant Xorg log)22:06
kelledinor lightdm is spitting out the "low-graphics" warning without legitimate cause22:06
TJ-Gotolei: on the "X sever display configuration" does it show the monitor with the correct resolution? And secondly, does it still show that correct resolution if you select the Nvidia GPU for Prime?22:06
TJ-kelledin: See "/var/log/lightdm/*" for the Xorg logs from the DM and greeter22:07
TJ-Gotolei: any change if you press "Detect Displays" ?22:08
TJ-Gotolei: because that screen capture shows the problem as is... because the nvidia side has not found a monitor it adopts a very small default physical dimension and pixel resolution22:09
kelledinTJ-: also empty22:10
EriC^^Gotolei-laptop: what does xrandr output?22:11
TJ-Gotolei: I've found a lead. Apparently, for prime, a config file in the user's home directory contains commands that should be run at log-in. Can you "pastebinit ~/.xsessionrc"22:12
notfowlaudio skips in ubuntu 15.04 how what do i fix it22:12
Gotolei-laptopi don't have an .xsessionrc22:13
TJ-Gotolei: hmmm, can you "pastebinit ~/.xsession-errors"22:13
EriC^^Gotolei-laptop: type xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1600x190022:14
Gotolei-laptopok so now i'm 1600x90022:15
kelledinoooh...wait a minute22:15
TJ-Gotolei: right. The clues I found suggest the commands to do that are supposed to be in .xsessionrc... but it isn't clear what is supposed to create that file, or keep it updated22:16
kelledinapparently lightdm.conf was broken22:16
TJ-kelledin: well spotted :)22:16
EriC^^Gotolei-laptop: you don't have those resolutions in settings > display?22:17
Gotolei-laptopi didn't have them before22:18
GerowenOne observation I've noticed with Ubuntu 15.04 compared to 14.04.  When the system is under load by one application, the whole GUI (Unity/LightDM) seems to hang up, mouse stops moving and everything.  CTRL+ALT+F1 works find and is responsive.  Any ideas as to what changed to cause this?22:18
Gotolei-laptopso what now, i expect it'll revert to 640x480 once i reboot22:19
EriC^^set it from settings > display22:19
Gotolei-laptopit is set22:20
Gotolei-laptopnow it is at least22:20
EriC^^set something, then set it again22:20
TJ-Gotolei: Did you say you're using Xubuntu/XFCE?22:21
TJ-Gotolei: OK... that depends on lightdm. I'm not sure how relevant this is, but I've just read that one of the requirements for 14.04 Nvidia Prime is lighdm - which might infer that some additional lightdm configuration/scripting is done to support the hybrid graphics ... which may not be working for you22:23
TJ-Gotolei: did you install 14.04 fresh or is it an upgrade from a previous release?22:24
Gotolei-laptopfresh, albeit eight months ago22:24
TJ-Gotolei: Good :) .. and you had Bumblebee on originally22:24
Gotolei-laptopas far as i understand lightdm is a Unity thing22:25
TJ-Gotolei: I noticed that nvidia-prime installs /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/90-nvidia.conf - can you pastebin that file for us?22:25
TJ-Gotolei: no, Light(weight) Display Manager (DM)22:25
TJ-Gotolei: OK, that looks fine22:27
Gotolei-laptopso i want those commands to run when i log in, is what i'm gathering22:28
Gotolei-laptopor whatever the command equivalents are22:28
ubuntu130I just installed ubuntu, but now it's updating to 15.04. Will that also fix my sound? In unbuntu my sound isn't working. Perhaps it didn't read my drivers?22:28
TJ-Gotolei: Those commands are executed when the X server starts. From what I'm inferring, the 'xrandr --output ..." command EriC^^ gave you is probably needed when the user session starts, but it's not clear - can't find documentation on it22:29
wileeeubuntu130, No auto updates in ubuntu, are you sure of the install release, or hit an upgrade?22:29
TJ-Gotolei: I'm wondering if there's any leftover from Bumblebee interfering here. Can you "ls -al /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/"22:29
skinuxIs there a library for using Java with Ubuntu to build panel Applets?22:30
wileeeubuntu130, Sorry auto release upgrades22:30
ubuntu130I started with an older version, but almost as soon as I finished installing, it threw "upgrade to 15.04" at me22:30
ubuntu130So that's running22:30
TJ-skinux: I've never seen or heard of anything along those lines22:30
Gotolei-laptopin what way is nvidia-prime 'preferred' if it doesn't work without a million extra steps22:31
ubuntu130Of course, an update is always good, I'm just wanting to get my old everything working, sound, browser, etc before I really do a whole lot else22:31
TJ-Gotolei: OK, and how about the package-installed alternative: "ls -la usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/"22:31
kelledinlol, apparently an internal preseed generated a broken lightdm.conf22:31
wileeeubuntu130, that is just done depending on how you have the computer set, you don;t have to upgrade? Unless you installed an eol, what was the install?22:31
ubuntu130I don't have any reason to not upgrade at this point.22:32
TJ-Gotolei: Usually it does work with a clean install... problems mainly seem to be when driver versions are changed or bumblebee has been used previously. The whole area of hybrid graphics is a minefield though22:32
wileeeubuntu130, Well 14.04 is supported 14.10 id eol, which is it?22:32
Gotolei-laptopthe driver automatically upgrading is what broke things in the first place22:32
TJ-Gotolei: Good, no obviously stray files there. What we need is someone with a working prime config we can compare against22:33
Gotolei-laptop331/bumblebee worked fantastic for eight months straight22:33
wileeeubuntu130, We are running in circles, is i you want us to guess if this upgrade fixes your problem?22:33
ubuntu130No, not really. That's way unreasonable to ask.22:33
TJ-Gotolei: yeah, it's damned annoying22:33
wileeeubuntu130, Than if you can give adequate details and an end goal, we are going nowhere. ;)22:34
ubuntu130I'm just new to it and trying to figure out what all the things are. Like getting a new came control, everything just feels weird for a while22:34
ubuntu130game control*22:34
=== CodfishCatfish is now known as M0STO
wileeecan;t help there, best of luck takes a bit to get orientated, you will be fine. ;Z)22:35
ubuntu130I hope so. I figure it can't be THAT hard. It will probably be easier once the new version is installed and I can look at things a bit more.22:35
EriC^^Gotolei-laptop: try rebooting, who knows, if it doesn't stick you can always run the command by putting it in ~/.profile or so, and in the mean time TJ- could very well get to the bottom of the problem22:35
ubuntu130It's a pretty big update though, it's been loading for 20 minutes or so22:36
ubuntu130Then again, that's not too surprising given that I just added the OS22:36
TJ-Gotolei: I've just listed all the files in bumblebee since my hunch is that one or more is left behind and interfering. This command "pastebinit <(apt-file list bumblebee)" gives this list http://paste.ubuntu.com/12010261/22:36
wileeeubuntu130, takes about 3-4 hours here on an upgrade, I just do fresh installs.22:37
skinuxWell, I downloaded and installed an "Applet" in Python that puts weather at the top....like to be able to do that using Java.22:37
ubuntu130Guess I've got some time to kill22:37
skinuxNot specifically the weather part.22:37
kostkonskinux, you could also ask in #ubuntu-app-devel22:37
skinuxOh, okay.22:37
EriC^^TJ-: maybe apt-get purge bumblebee to remove the config files?22:37
EriC^^TJ-: or dpkg -P perhaps?22:37
TJ-Gotolei: I suggested checking that the first 10 files at least, are no longer in your system, since some may be used when the X server starts22:38
TJ-EriC^^: Yes, but it would be nice to know which, if any, are present and causing this. We see users suffer this from time to time and never pin-pointed the cause22:38
wileeeubuntu130, If all goes well, it should, you will be asked at the end to discard any apps/packages replaced b y new versions and not supported, you can go yes or no, not a huge issue.22:38

* wileee slips a few espresso shots to add22:40
ubuntu130I suppose till that happens, I'll lay down or play mariokart. Best not to poke at things that are changing things22:40
wileeeubuntu is pretty good for easy running and has all the tools to break and fix at will ;)22:42
JOWhey guys, I wanna set an environmental variable permanently, how do I do that?22:42
JOWwhen I use export it is set only temporarily22:43
Gotoleiyay, everything crashing to high heaven22:43
EriC^^JOW: just for your user?22:43
JOWhummm yes Eric22:43
JOWactually for any users22:43
EriC^^JOW: oh, add it to /etc/environment22:44
JOWwhat file?22:44
EriC^^sudo nano /etc/environment22:44
JOWEric, it opens an open file22:47
JOWsudo nano /etc/environment opens an empty file22:47

doctorlyI am using Ubuntu 14.04, how do I map keys by keycode?22:48
EriC^^JOW: are you using ubuntu?22:50
EriC^^add it to /etc/bashrc.bashrc i guess22:51
JOWisn't it setup.bashrc or something?22:51
TJ-remember that the shell-specific  won't apply system-wide if an alternative shell is used22:52

miosoWhenever I am prompted for a Keyring password, should I be updating or changing it?22:59
EriC^^JOW: np :)22:59
badbodhmioso, keyring shouldn't ask for it if you don't keep changing it23:00
miosoI've never changed it/updated it? It just started showing up23:00
badbodhgnome's keyring by default uses your user password, unlike kde's wallet that needs separate pass23:00
badbodhif you changes your user pass, it will ask once23:00
miosoI don't know what it is and I'm hesitant to just type in a password from something that's unknown to be but it sounds like I should just do whatever the keyring prompt asks me to do23:01
badbodhenter your user pass once, that should shut it up. it shows up on login or any specific app triggers it ?23:03
nimbioticsI have an Ubuntu 14.04LTS VBox. A while ago I accessed it via ssh with Putty and all went well but now I cannot access my ubuntu VBox. I enter my passwords, it plays the music indicating I'm logged in, clears the screen and then goes back to the login screen. I can still access my VBox via ssh with Putty, but I cannot access it directly. Any ideas how to fix this? TIA!23:03
TJ-mioso: If the user account password is no longer in sync with the keyring password you'll have to be asked for the keyring password when things like the WiFi passphrase are required23:04
=== The_Yeti is now known as The_Yeti|AFK
miosoTJ I've always just pressed cancel and nothing happens. I'll type somethign in next time.23:05
badbodhdoes this channel handle vbox, ssh and putty stuff ?23:06
TJ-mioso: Have you changed your user account password at some point since the account was originally created? That is the usual cause23:06
miosoNo. I just installed 15.04 two days ago23:06
TJ-nimbiotics: sounds like maybe the $HOME/.Xauthority file may need removing23:06
earl__does this channel do help?23:07
TJ-mioso: OK, so it looks like the keyring hasn't had its password set. I recommend setting it to the same as the user account... that should stop the manual prompts23:07
Bashing-omearl__: Yeah, ubuntu help is what we do .23:09
earl__Awesome. So I am running windows 10. I created a live Ubuntu USB, and through a long, difficult process have installed Ubuntu.23:10
badbodhlong and difficult :D you should try gentoo or arch sometime23:10
earl__Now, I have a few issues. When I boot, I'm met with a "grub> " command line and I have to type "exit" to get out and get to windows23:11
EriC^^earl__: are you dual booting?23:11
badbodhturn off secureboot23:11
miosoTJ I type in keyring in the search and there's like PGP, private key, GnuPG, OpenSSH, etc? Should I type in the same password for all of those?23:12
earl__Good question. I installed Ubuntu to an external hd. when i installed, I made a EFI partition, a swap partition and an etf4 partition23:12
TJ-mioso: I think the keyring we're on about is controlled by the application "seahorse" - try searching for that23:12
earl__the short of it is that it is on an external hard drive. Secure boot is set to off23:12
badbodhmioso, no. just the first one named 'login' needs your user pass23:13
EriC^^earl__: boot a live usb and come back here23:13
EriC^^earl__: did you install ubuntu twice?23:13
TJ-mioso: if you're already in Seahorse then see what badbodh said above23:14
earl__EriC^^, I am currently on Ubuntu on the ext HD, so it's working. Also, interesting question. I went into the UEFI settings and there were two identical ubuntu boot options it seemed23:14
earl__so i could have installed twice, possiblt23:14
EriC^^earl__: that's normal, one is for nonsecureboot the other is for secureboot23:15
miosoI don't see seahorse23:15
EriC^^earl__: how did you boot into ubuntu on the ext hdd?23:15
miosonothing named login23:15
nimbioticsTJ-: How can I fix that?23:15
earl__Power on, grub> comes up, I typed exit, select Ubuntu23:15
TJ-mioso: I assumed when you said "search" you meant from the Desktop dashboard, is that correct?23:16
EriC^^earl__: oh, type sudo apt-get install pastebinit23:16
EriC^^then sudo parted -l | pastebinit23:16
earl__EriC^^, ok one second..23:16
earl__EriC^^, done23:18
earl__The Seagate would be the External HD EriC^^23:19
GerowenAnybody have any ideas why Unity seems to be incredibly laggy after a clean install of 15.04 compared to how it behaved in 14.04?  If the system is under any significant load, the whole desktop gets slow and jittery.23:19
arthurfiggishello :) i'm wondering if anyone has run into the following problem, in every flavour of ubuntu 15.04 i've tried so far, if full disk encryption is enabled, i can't type in the password to decrypt with a wireless keyboard...it will only work with a wired USB keyboard, once getting past that screen the wireless one works as expected?23:19
EriC^^earl__: what else is on it?23:19
TJ-mioso: OK, I'm not sure what Unity might be calling it, but the underlying application for managing key pairs and passwords is "seahorse"23:19
earl__Nothing EriC^^, after much trouble, I caved and cleaned it off. If I need to wipe it it's fine23:19
i_am_a_duncehi guys23:19
badbodhGerowen, make sure you have correct gcard drivers. also go to controlcenter>privacy> turn of online search23:20
i_am_a_duncedoes anyone know how to get the OUTPUT of the most recent bash commands?23:20
i_am_a_duncei tried scrolling up23:20
i_am_a_duncebut don't have enough of it23:20
EriC^^earl__: are you sure csm legacy mode is disabled?23:20
TJ-mioso: there's an overview of what to expect here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UserDays/01232010/SeahorseGPG23:20
badbodhGerowen, you can also disable dash plugin/scopes you don't use.23:20
earl__EriC^^, no idea.23:20
EriC^^earl__: usually uefi is used with gpt partitions23:20
earl__I am a bit of a newb.23:20
i_am_a_dunceif it's not available when i scroll up, does that mean it's gone forever?23:21
Gerowenbadbodh: Intel card, drivers seem to work good, because I can play my Steam games with no issues, and the online search is disabled.  It's not just the menu, it's the whole interface.  The mouse and everything will slow down to a crawl, even CTRL+ALT+F1 will take 30-45 seconds to respond sometimes.23:21
EriC^^earl__: ok, well as it is ubuntu is dependent on your other hdd to boot23:21
Gerowenbadbodh: No additional drivers listed under Software and Sources.23:21
miosoTJ thank you. I'll look through that.23:21
EriC^^earl__: my advice would be to make a new partition table that's gpt, and install ubuntu there using its own efi partition and have the bootmanager boot it23:21
badbodhGerowen, ok. then install 'htop', if things lag got to tty shell, run htop and check what's eating up.23:21
EriC^^and then select windows from grub23:22
earl__The goal was to make it so that, if I plugged in the ext HD before boot, my computer would boot to Ubuntu. If I left the ext HD unplugged from USB, then I'd boot to windows @ EriC^^23:22
Bashing-omi_am_a_dunce: The file is at " /var/log/apt/history.log " .23:22
EriC^^earl__: yeah that'll work23:22
badbodhGerowen, you can also install lm-sensor, run 'sudo sensors-detect' to set up temperature monitor. check if cpu is running hot.23:22
earl__From what I understood, I wanted to put the ubuntu boot manager on the ext HD23:23
i_am_a_dunceBashing-on: that appears to just be the apt log?23:23
i_am_a_duncei ran an ls command23:23
i_am_a_dunceand would love to see its output23:23
ElDiablitoi_am_a_dunce: cat .bash_history|less23:23
TJ-mioso: try pressing Alt+F2 and then the command "seahorse" ... that should start it, and if the password required to unlock its keyring isn't the same as the user password, it will ask you to type the password. Once done, edit the Passwords > Login entry, and set it to the same as the user account password23:24
i_am_a_duncei'm trying to see the output of an ls command23:24
badbodhGerowen, run "acpi -V" to check temp23:24
i_am_a_duncei know what command I ran23:24
i_am_a_duncebut the contents of that directory somehow changed, not sure how23:24
i_am_a_dunceand i would love to compare the old contents to the new contents23:24
Gerowenbadbodh: Just ran sensors, running about 40 celsius right now, but right now all is well.23:24
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: if the terminal scrollback buffer no longer contains the output, then it has gone23:24
i_am_a_duncefuck me sideways.23:24
xochilpilihi all23:25
badbodhGerowen, ok. usually mouse lag occurs when temp id too high or ram is too low23:25
i_am_a_dunceexcuse my language23:25
TJ-!language | i_am_a_dunce23:25
ubottui_am_a_dunce: The main Ubuntu channels require that you speak in calm, polite English. For other languages, please visit https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList23:25
i_am_a_dunceI apologize.23:25
Gotolei-laptopback again23:25
i_am_a_dunceI just lost like, 300+ files, and don't even know what those are at this point23:25
Bashing-omi_am_a_dunce: Lemme check. This is a file for the history . Be beack soonest.23:25
earl__So EriC^^ pardon my limited knowledge, but what should I do for next steps23:25
miosoI'll have to find a keyboard F keys. I have a ducky mini :(23:25
Gotolei-laptopthings are running more or less well, but how is nvidia-prime preferred over bumblebee?23:25
ElDiablitoi_am_a_dunce: ls <your parameters> > output.txt23:25
badbodhi_am_a_dunce, you cannot see past outputs of bash, you can however see past commands by pressing 'up' key in terminal23:25
Gotolei-laptopit's worse in every way as far as i can tell23:26
Gerowenbadbodh: I had already installed htop in an attempt to find the culprit earlier, but I'll just try to narrow down the culprit best I can.  I've got 4 GB of RAM, so surely it's not low RAM, then again if I'm extracting a 6.2 GB archive, maybe that is it, I've been recovering all my personal files from the upgrade, and they're stored in fairly large tarballs.23:26
i_am_a_duncei know I should have done that. but i didn't think anything would happen so i didn't output them like an idiot23:26
i_am_a_dunceif the terminal scrollback doesn't have them, they're gone forever?23:26
EriC^^earl__: boot the live usb, make a fresh partition table using cgdisk, create the efi partition, 300mb, hexcode ef00, run mkfs.fat to make a fat32 filesystem there and in the ubuntu installer select Something else, make a root partition, select the hdd's efi partition you made, make sure th bootloader location at the bottom is correct23:26
ElDiablitoi_am_a_dunce: I guess they are gone, you're right ...23:26
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: unless you've got some form of back-up in operation, yes23:26
badbodhGerowen, hard disk usage also eats up cpu, if you have ntfs volumes notice 'mount-ntfs' or 'mount-ntfs-3g' in htop will be high cpu eater23:27
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: a better question is, how did you delete those files?23:27
i_am_a_dunceI tried using a Rhythmbox plugin called 'File Oragnizer'23:27
i_am_a_dunceShould've backed up first23:27
i_am_a_dunceI have no idea where they disapepared to23:27
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: "Fileorganizer is a Rhythmbox Plugin that will move and rename files according to your tags and then update the database so you don’t lose your ratings and play counts. "23:28
badbodhi_am_a_dunce, likely you lost them forver. some apps do save log, they are usually in /var/log.23:28
i_am_a_dunceYes, but my directory had 600 files and now it has 450 so I'm very confused lol23:29
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: So, my reading is your files are somewhere better organised! What directory did you 'lose' the files from?23:29
badbodhit may have deleted duplicate ones. do note 'untagged' files may be mistaken as duplicates too23:29
earl__EriC^^, so essentially reinstalling Ubuntu23:30
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: I suspect that FO may have renamed the files based on their ID3 tags, and maybe moved them under $HOME/Music/23:30
i_am_a_duncewoooooooow TJ great call man23:30
i_am_a_dunceall of the files somehow ended up in one directory in Music23:30
EriC^^earl__: yeah23:30
nimbioticsTJ-: Sorry, I had not read your comment properly. Now I do not have a $HOME/.Xauthority file. Any other ideas?23:30
i_am_a_duncebut definitely not based on the tags lol23:30
i_am_a_duncemy tags are proper23:30
i_am_a_duncebut anyways, yeah, taht was the issue23:31
i_am_a_duncethanks guys23:31
i_am_a_duncesaved me from a maaaaajor panic attack23:31
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: See this link http://askubuntu.com/questions/112668/how-do-i-force-rhythmbox-to-automatically-organise-my-music-files-into-folders23:31
i_am_a_duncesee but here's the weird thing23:31
i_am_a_dunceall the files are properly tagged in rhythmbox23:32
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: it shows a config dialog box with a log-file ... if you lose files again just check that log-file!23:32
earl__EriC^^, well I'll try to understand all those steps :p. Thanks for the help! I'll be back hopefully23:32
i_am_a_dunceor anyways, appear to be23:32
i_am_a_duncebut when i move them23:32
i_am_a_duncewith fileorganizer23:32
i_am_a_duncethey all moved to the same directory23:32
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: there are several versions of ID tags.. some files may have differing versions or more than 1 version attached, and the tools have different heuristics on deciding which to use... So a tool expecting IDv3 processing a file with IDv2 sees no tag23:33
=== sythe is now known as sythe-afk
i_am_a_dunceright on. any way i can get the tags that rhythmbox sees to be the ID3 tags?23:33
i_am_a_dunceevery song is properly tagged with Rhythmbox (i did so manually)23:33
j3r0guys in a dual boot how do I reinstall ubuntu ?(after format)23:33
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: Years ago I used a tool that would correct all the tags and ensure each version of ID was present, and it was very programmable. Can't remember its name now23:34
i_am_a_dunceI'll look into it23:35
i_am_a_dunceThanks guys :)23:35
Johnny_Linuxeasytag or entagged23:35
TJ-I think I'm thinking of around 2001 ... Tag&Rename on Windows :)23:35
i_am_a_dunceeasytag didn't really work for me23:36
i_am_a_dunceor anyways, didn't pick up the files i tagged with rhythmbox23:36
i_am_a_duncelike, according to rhythmbox, all my songs are properly tagged23:36
i_am_a_duncebut not according to easytag23:36
i_am_a_duncethis is so bizarre23:39
xochilpilii came here, because i couldnt find anything about this: i have a preseed file im trying to make an unattendant installation but no desktop just minimal, i have set this : tasksel tasksel/first   multiselect; but i got this : "Package selecction" then when i hit enter: debian-installer menu select; how can i fix this?23:42
xochilpilisorry by my english23:42
ubuntu383Alright, so 15.04 finally managed to update and install.23:42
xochilpilior how can i skip this select packages to install?23:42
i_am_a_duncehow can i find all files with no extensions?23:45
i_am_a_duncei think that might be the issue; some of the music doens't have an extension for whatever reason23:45
wileeexochilpili, debian?23:46
xochilpiliwileee, ubuntu23:46
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: "find /path/to/base/dir -regex '.*[^\.].*'  "23:47
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: scratch that, wrong :)23:48
i_am_a_duncesee the thing is, a lot of these files do have .'s in them23:49
i_am_a_dunceso it's probably not doable23:49
i_am_a_duncei'll just do it manually (filter out mp3's and mp4a's first)23:49
ubuntu383is it probable that after installing ubuntu, my drivers will need changed for things like sound or graphics?23:49
TJ-i_am_a_dunce: "find /path/to/base/dir  -regextype posix-extended ! -regex '.+[.].+'  "23:53
