salmonhattAnyone know of a good way to run Windows/Steam games on ubuntu?00:00
mranonymoussalmonhatt: you can install steam00:02
salmonhattI know. But it won't run Windows games for Steam, which is mostly what I have.00:02
TJ-OpenSorce: create a shell script to automate the fix, then add a .desktop application launcher to run it00:04

salmonhattI tried PlayOnLinux...it loads Steam fine, but it won't load the game. The display changes and I hear the audio, but it's not playable00:04
=== ejimenez is now known as ejimz
mranonymoussalmonhatt: aha, i can't tell you anything new, imo I think you're out of luck00:06
mranonymoussalmonhatt: others may know more, I think best way is steam and linux games from steam00:07
salmonhattWish I could, but there aren't any good games for linux on steam00:07
mranonymoussalmonhatt: cs go is good :)00:08
adam___Hello I need some help. I have a dell xps 13 developer eddition running ubuntu. I am trying to get it connected to my television. I have a minidv to hdmi adaptor and an hdmi chord. I have them attached and the video works fine. However, I am not getting any audio. It does not even show up as an option in the sound manager00:08
salmonhattProblem is that I've paid for several Windows games, and those are the ones I want to play00:08
TJ-adam___: minidv? is that min-DVI? DVI doesn't transport audio00:09
adam___TJ-:I am sorry i meant minidisplay port00:11
TJ-adam___: Ahhhh... i did wonder. Maybe the PC doesn't output audio on the DP - many don't00:12
mranonymoussalmonhatt: yea i get you, as i said, others may know more, but I think it would be at least very hard to do it00:13
salmonhattI was able to do it on Linux Mint. Don't know why I can't do it on Ubuntu00:13
adam___TJ-: I know that it is possible with the hardware I think it is a driver problem but I dont know how to proceed00:14
TJ-adam___: check "/var/log/dmesg" look for confirmation that the DP audio device is detected and configured00:14
x86iacsalmonhatt: don't you need to use wine for the windows game?00:14
mranonymoussalmonhatt: how did you do it on linux mint?00:14
salmonhattPlayOnLinux is a front-end for Wine. Makes it simpler to use.00:15
salmonhattand on Mint, I used PlayOnLinux00:15
adam___TJ-: How do I do that00:16
TJ-adam___: I prefer the command-line but you can use any text reader/editor. I use 'less /var/log/dmesg" and then "G" to jump to the end, then work backwards00:16
x86iacadam___: i think you need to find out if it needs a separate kernel module?00:17
TJ-adam___: if you want to "pastebinit /var/log/dmesg" we can look at it too00:18
OneM_IndustriesHow do I create the French accent letters in Ubuntu?00:19
adam___how do i do that?00:19
mranonymoussalmonhatt: i don't know, you should be able to get it running in ubuntu too, it's basically the same00:19
TJ-adam___: type the command inside the "  " marks00:19
salmonhattMy thoughts exactly00:19
=== Eggs is now known as Guest79572
adam___TJ-: downloading postbinit now00:22
mranonymoussalmonhatt: sorry man, I don't know, maybe it's display driver or something like that00:22
salmonhattWell...I reinstalled Steam for Linux, and now PlayOnLinux is running it fine. Must've been missing a file or two...hundred00:23
OneM_IndustriesI have tried using the alt+ shortcuts, but it is not working.00:23
mranonymoussalmonhatt: glad you got it running :) gtg bye00:24
TJ-adam___: there's a major problem with errors from the intel i915 video driver, e.g. "i915_bdw: Unknown symbol drm_framebuffer_cleanup (err -22)"00:25
TJ-adam___: as the video driver is responsible for audio on the video outputs, that is the likely cause. Fix that, and you should have audio00:25
adam___TJ-: How do i fix this?00:26
x86iacOneM_Industries: don't you want to use the french locale or just the chars?00:28
OneM_IndustriesI need to be able to type the French special characters while keeping the rest of the computer as English, as I am taking a French course.00:29
OneM_IndustriesSo, things like alt+133 for à
x86iacwhen you find the unicode sequence i'd put them on a   alt-fnskey   (alt-f1 for example) so they can be easily available00:31
TJ-adam___: I'm not sure. The errors are coming from the Intel Broadwell driver (i915_bdw), but not sure why, unless the hardware doesn't match00:31
adam___TJ-: what should be my next step in figuring it out?00:31
x86iacwhat does dmesg really show it is - or lshw etc00:31
habhi i somehow managed to delete my conbections when uninstalling nome keyring via synaptic. I am running ubuntu 14 mate.00:32
TJ-adam___: show us "pastebinit <( lspci -nn )"00:33
habi looked in network settings y there is no tab for connections00:33
habits odd00:34
habwill i need to plug into reinstall connections?00:35
TJ-adam___: the driver is correct for 8086:1616 (i915_bdw)00:35
TJ-adam___: I can find 0 bugs in the bug tracker regarding this00:35
TJ-adam___: what *seems* to be 1 issue is the kernel module i915_bdw being loaded is bilt for a different version of the kernel. "i915_bdw: disagrees about version of symbol drm_framebuffer_cleanup"00:36
TJ-adam___: can you "pastebinit <( modinfo i915_bdw )"00:37
habanyone have a hunch?00:40
TJ-adam___: "3.13.0-62-generic" matches the booted kernel. I'm not sure what is going on. You'd best create a bug report and let the kernel dev's sort it out. It is further complicated because the Canonical kernel team decided to create their own i915_bdw module backported from Linux v3.14/v3.15 into the LTS v3.13 kernel, so there's no telling what they've done.00:42

routerllHi. Could someone help me with an audio problem? I've followed a number of troubleshooting guides, but nothing has worked except reinstalling things. After doing that, though, the problem comes back after a few reboots.00:49
adam___still doesnt work00:50
routerllin particular, my headphone jack often doesn't work. Audio will come out of my laptop's speakers, and when I plug my headphones in, the computer detects that, but no audio comes out of the headphones. Pavucontrol THINKS it is sending audio to the headphones, but it isn't.00:51
routerllAlso, everything works fine under Windows. The headphones are fine and the soundcard is fine.00:51
routerllFurther, the headphones are correctly detected and work properly with a liveCD or fresh install. Or if I remove and reinstall alsa and pulseaudio.00:52
x86iaceverything works fine under windows ... nice00:52
routerllBut after a few reboots/updates, the problem returns00:52
routerllx86iac: And with a liveCD also.00:52
x86iacno way?00:52
adam___TJ-: So I am SOL00:53
x86iacare you just shutting the computer down by powering it off?   does your mixer save your settings?  check the mixer00:53
habdoes anybody know how reinstall connections to network settings?00:53
TJ-adam___: report the bug, then it may get attention00:54
routerllx86iac: No, I power down. The mixer does save my settings, including the volume level prior to shutdown. It correctly sets the speakers and headphone output to their own volume level, HDMI as well. As I switch between them, say by plugging in my headphones, the mixer (alsamixer and Sound Preferences) remembers that output's previous volume.00:55
routerllI should mention, this computer has an IntelHDA soundcard using ALC270. It is an Asus that doesn't seem to have its own model name for alsa-base.conf, so I've been using "auto"00:56
routerllor else deleting the model line entirely00:56
routerllthat doesn't seem to affect it00:56
routerllx86iac: By "no, I power down" I meant to say that I click shut down and let ubuntu go through the shutdown process until the computer powers itself off00:58
TJ-routerll: on the face of it, those symptoms suggest some config is being saved somewhere.00:59
routerllTJ: I agree. But what config would make pavucontrol think that it is outputting sound to headphones when it is not?00:59
routerllTJ-: And would this be a pulseaudio config or an alsa config?01:00
TJ-well, PA does write a few config files01:00
routerllSo, simply deleting ~/.config/pulse and its contents does not affect this behaviour.01:00
TJ-routerll: when this hits your primary user profile, have you tried using the guest profile, or creating another user profile and testing it there? That might help determine if this is a per-user config issue01:00
routerllTJ-: I've not tried that, but it's a good suggestion. I'll do that now.01:01
routerllTJ-: The same symptoms exist in the Guest session.01:03
TJ-routerll: so possibly the config is in-memory when it happens. Does it continue if you restart the pulseaudio daemon?01:04
routerllTJ-: Is it enough to run "pulseaudio -k" in order to check that? If so, yes, the problem continues.01:05
TJ-routerll: It used to but I know recently I looked at 'ps' and thought I saw PA running as root01:06
TJ-routerll: nope, I mis-remembered. it is running as $USER01:06
routerllTJ-: "ps aux | grep pulseaudio" only shows me running it01:06
stricksHow to add "-fPIC" to a makefile? I'm trying to compile zathura-pdf-mupdf and it needs mupdf compiled with "-fPIC". Thank you.01:07
routerllstricks: I think -fPIC needs to be immediately after the gcc command in your makefile rule line.01:08
routerllTJ-: Any more thoughts? I agree that it seems like a config issue, I just have no idea which config file to edit, if not /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, and I have no clue why it would sometimes work and sometimes not after a reboot.01:10
stricksrouterll, in the "Makerules" or "Makefile" file?01:10
routerllsticks: In makefile. Find the rules line, the one that starts with gcc, and, immediately after the command gcc, add a space followed by -fPIC.01:11
TJ-stricks: usually you do "make CFLAGS=-fPIC" and it will add to the Makefile, but it depends on how well the Makefile was written01:11
stricksrouterll, TJ- , thank you, will report back.01:12
TJ-routerll: it could be an in-memory corruption issue being saved out, but if it continues after you've deleted the PA config files and restarted the daemon, that suggests an ALSA issue01:12
moyam01does anyone know how to paste from primary buffer into firefox without mouse?01:13
routerllTL-: I'm trying to diff the outputs of alsa-info.sh for each situation, but I haven't managed to get the headphones to work in the past many reboots. If I were to do that, would I be able to figure out what is wrong?01:14
x86iacstricks: just add it to the make command\01:14
routerllTJ-: Meant to address the above to you.01:15
TJ-routerll: when you shutdown/reboot do you ensure the 5V standby is off as well - disconnect from wall, press power switch to drain capacitors etc., then start it? I'm wondering if the hardware is the culprit01:15
TJ-routerll: if a laptop... removing battery01:15
routerllTJ-: Not always. I'd assumed that, since using a liveCD or a different OS seems to solve the problem, it must not be a hardware issue.01:16
stricksx86iac, I get this error "make: PIC: No such file or directory make: *** No rule to make target 'PIC'.  Stop."01:16
TJ-routerll: You've got so many differing results it is hard to figure out where to look01:16
routerllTJ-: I thought I had 4 results. (1) On boot, speakers and headphones work. This has two states: headphones plugged in or not. (2) On boot, speakers work but headphones don't. This also has two states.01:18
TJ-stricks: check the Makefile. It may use EXTRA_CFLAGS. In which case, use "make EXTRA_CFLAGS=-fPIC"01:18
routerllTJ-: So, I thought I'd reboot until I get both results, run alsa-info.sh for each case, and diff them all.01:19
TJ-routerll: I thought you had also that during a session several plug-in/plug-out causes it to fail too?01:19
routerllTJ-: No. Once it's working, it keeps working until reboot.01:20
TJ-routerll: Ahhh, I misunderstood. That makes things simpler!01:20
TJ-routerll:  in which case each time you boot save a copy of "/var/log/dmesg" with a name indicating the state of the outputs, and then compare them when you have all the scenarios captured01:21
TJ-routerll: if the hardware audio pins are being configured differently you'll see it01:21
routerllTJ-: Will do.01:22
TJ-routerll: e.g. here's what I get: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12166185/01:22
routerllTJ-: I'll reboot a bunch of times, save the logs and report back.01:24
x86iacTJ- stricks it would be for cflags not extra_flags01:25
x86iacstricks: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13812185/how-to-recompile-with-fpic01:26
TJ-x86iac: depends on the Makefile; it might do CFLAGS:=$(EXTRA_CFLAGS) ...01:26
stricks,TJ-, x86iac,  yes changed to "make CFLAGS=-fPIC" and worked. Thank you.01:27

hdonhi all :) i have a very strange phenomenon. i'm using ubuntu 14.04. i have a jfs filesystem mounted via fstab. the configuration has not been changed in almost a year. earlier today, the filesystem was giving me EROFS (Read-only file system.) i scratched my head, looked around for anything unusual, didn't find anything, and so i mount -o rw,remount the filesystem. well, it's several hours later, and now i am getting EROFS again! what could be happening?!01:29
hdoncould the jfs module be encountering errors and setting it into ro?01:30
TJ-hdon: check "/var/log/kern.log" in case there are I/O errors from the disk/controller01:30
hdonhmm, i do see some jfs errors in the kernel log01:30
hdonTJ-: yes i just found some :(01:30
hdonbut is this normal behavior for a filesystem to go into ro-mode automatically?01:30
hdoni've been using linux for 13 years and i've never seen this behavior01:31
hdonnot saying i know everything though :)01:31
TJ-hdon: if the errors affect the file-system data, yes01:31
hdonTJ-: huh, thanks. any idea where i can find more info on this behavior?01:31
TJ-hdon: as far as i know it's been standard behaviour in the kernel file-system drivers since... oh the start of Linux! that's why we have the errors=remount-ro option01:32
hdonTJ-: you know, i've seen that option all this time, and somehow i just never questioned it, haha..01:33
routerllTJ-: Okay, I'm back after a reboot in which my headphones work. The only difference between the two dmesg files, re: headphones, is the IRQ.01:33
hdonTJ-: thanks for the help :)01:34
siscclis ubuntu for nexus 5 worth it?  any opinions?01:34
TJ-routerll: when it happens, I wonder if "alsactl init" might poke it?01:34
siscclI don’t dig the UI really but maybe I just don’t get it01:34
TJ-routerll: grabbing at straws until you can find some evidence.01:35
TJ-routerll: it's worth checking the entire dmesg for any signs of other issues that cause a knock-on effect. It could also be influenced by options to snd_hda_intel for example (if that is the driver)01:36
routerllTJ-: That is the driver. Diffing dmesg's is tough, though, since the time codes are all different. Any advice?01:36
TJ-routerll: strip the time codes01:38
routerllTJ-: I should have thought of that lol. Thanks.01:38

rex__what room should I go to get help for an ubuntu partition04:10
Winternetpartion before install or post-install04:12
AHemlocksLieAre there any known issues with the 15.04 installer? The disc I burned kept hanging, so I forced a recheck on the torrent and put it on a USB stick, and it got through all the information collection, but it's moving awfully slow if at all in the actual installation04:15
rex__I need help removing or merging a couple of tiny partitions. I used gParted live and still couldnt resize my main partition to add them.. Picture here>   http://imgur.com/cW9IbvK04:16

edenistrex__, it looks like a lot of work for ony a couple of MB of space to reclaim04:18
edenistor is it just an annoyance kinda thing?04:18
rex__edentist, I was having Ocd about it.. I just dont like seeing so many partitions04:19
goddardhow can i debug a system freeze?04:19
=== cyphase_ is now known as cyphase
edenistrex__, hmmmmm. well the first unallocated space should be able to be merged into the ext4 partition. make sure it is unmounted first, then you should be able to select merge04:23
edenistthe last space will be a bit trickier, as you will either have to expand the recovery partition into it, or move the recovery partition past it, then increase the extended partition, then the ext4 again04:24
neopsycheHi all. Driving me nuts. cant install updates, /boot is full (apparently) deleted all not in use kernels.. still reporting not enough space.04:24
neopsycheubuntu 14.0404:24
edenistive not used gparted for ntfs partition modification before, so YMMV04:24
rex__edenist, ok thanks for the advice. I just wiped win7 from the main partition, so I think I might backup My linux partitions and just start fresh04:26
rex__the recovery is from win7, I believe. i dont need it anymore04:27
AHemlocksLieI think my 15.04 installation froze. It's in the "Creating ext4 file system" phase. Can I safely reboot without worrying about damage to my Windows partition? I worry about my master boot record and partition table04:27
edenistrex__, in that case, it's likely the weird unallocated spaces are from the way the system was setup with windows, especially the placement of the recovery partition. It may be in a weird place which means you may never be able to get rid of the tiny unallocated spaces unless you do a full drive wipe04:27
edenistrex__, ok, in that case, just wipe the whole drive then, delete all partitions when you do a reinstall04:28
rex__ednist, I believe my Ocd has won, and I will do a full wipe. Thanks04:28

neopsycheanyone know how to make / boot bigger04:59
matjuHi, I seem to have a huge problem of disk cache. Not long ago, I was able to sort the contents of a large file in 27 seconds with Ubuntu 14.04. I bought a much faster computer and installed 15.04 on it, and now the sort is taking many minutes and the disk doesn't stop writing. It seems as if writes are not delayed, which is very inconvenient. How do I fix this except downgrading the OS ?04:59
cfhowlettneopsyche, how large is /boot?  mine is here.  fwiw, gparted can resize, but I'm not sure you actually need to do that.05:02
matju... but dmesg says that the disk cache is enabled for that drive (sda).05:03
neopsychecfhowlett: something like 250mb05:03
cfhowlettneopsyche, sudo parted -l | nc termbin.com 9999           and paste the url here05:03
neopsycheyes i want gparted to make it bigger.. ubuntu keeps telling me too small .. i think because some of the apps like google earth use old kernels?05:03
cfhowlettneopsyche, doesn't work like that.  the apps will use the currently booted kernel.05:04
neopsychegod knows how kernels keep getting in there lol  :-D05:04
cfhowlettneopsyche, sudo apt-get autoermove should clean out old kernels.  keep the 2 most recent versions.05:05
neopsychei tried it a few times.05:05
cfhowlettneopsyche, no change?05:05
neopsycheubuntu update still complaining that ;28mb' needs to be cleared05:05
neopsychei already manually deleted 4 kernels05:05
cfhowlettneopsyche, OK then.  gparted it is.05:05
neopsychegrub must have something in it perhaps.05:06
neopsycheits a bit grubby?05:06
cfhowlettneopsyche, you'll need to free some space on your hdd and then move/join the free space to your /bot05:06
cfhowlettneopsyche, grub should be auto-loading the most recent kernel05:07
cfhowlettmatju, do you have a /swap?05:07
neopsychecfhowlett:  thanks man.  how do i move some space?05:08
cfhowlettneopsyche, select the unassigned free part and move it next to /boot05:09
neopsychecfhowlett: free part?05:09
surgywhats the command line to give permission to every user of the computer to read write and execute a file/folder ?05:09
neopsycheboot is 243mib05:09
cfhowlettneopsyche, you have to free some space.  shrink one of your partitions,05:09
neopsychei need to make space/?05:09
neopsychefascinating.. unused 68.49 mib05:10
neopsyche... ubuntu says 'cant install because need 28?'05:11
cfhowlettneopsyche, kernel = about 100 mb05:11
surgywhats the command line to give permission to every user of the computer to read write and execute a file/folder ?05:11
matjucfhowlett: no file named /swap, but I have a swap partition on the same disk, which is unused because I have much more than enough RAM.05:11
neopsychecfhowlett:  how to make space on encrypted drive?05:11
cfhowlett!swap | matju05:11
ubottumatju: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info05:11
neopsychecfhowlett: no swap05:12
cfhowlettneopsyche, carefully.05:12
neopsychecfhowlett: how?05:12
matjucfhowlett: what about it ?05:12
neopsychecant click on resize / move05:12
cfhowlettneopsyche, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=72672405:12
matjucfhowlett: my swap partition exists and is enabled, but the system doesn't use it, because it doesn't need it.05:12
cfhowlettmatju, OK05:13
Winternethow big your ram is05:13
neopsycheargh resized with a live cd in mulitple steps?!? I need a degree in cryptography to move drive size?!?1 lol05:13
cfhowlettneopsyche, how many kernels are in /boot?05:14
matjucfhowlett: I also notice slowdown of apps trying to write much slower files : write() seems to be blocking the app until the file is completely written to disk.05:14
matjuWinternet: 12Go.05:15
cfhowlettneopsyche, something else is happening then, possibly related to encrypt.  kernels = about 100 mb.  no reason for you to be seeing "out of space" error with only 1 kernel.05:15
cfhowlettmatju, as it's not a /swap issue, I'm over my head.  ask again in channel.05:16

Winternetthis is not a big question about it.05:34
cfhowlettdevhen, sounds like you did something wrong somewhere; missed a software source setting would be my guess.05:35
devhencfhowlett: my sources.list is exactly as described on the EOL upgrades wiki page. https://dpaste.de/jAJ205:36
cfhowlettdevhen, then the system wouldn't even know to look for karmic ... so karmic is still present somewhere05:37
devhenhm. i wonder where ..05:37
lotuspsychjedevhen: the longer you wait to upgrade from an eol, the more dangerous for security flaws, would you trust your server still?05:37
matjulotuspsychje: i don't know what to look for in those files, except "sda". I'll reboot to see whether it makes a difference.05:40
cfhowlettdevhen, I'm sure there are reasons, but were it my box: clean intall 14.04.3, not eolupgrade.05:40

HalelujahMy question: How to install latest radeon driver?05:49
matjulotuspsychje: i rebooted and then the reads got at least 4 times faster and the writes at least 60 times faster.05:49
lotuspsychje!latest | Halelujah05:49
ubottuHalelujah: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.05:49
Halelujahi need latest radeon driver :)\05:50
ubottuIf new updated Ubuntu packages are built for an application, then they may go into Ubuntu Backports. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports - See also !packaging05:50
lotuspsychjeHalelujah: does the driver ubuntu choose not work for you?05:50
matjulotuspsychje: actually, for the writes, it's more like : it wasn't doing delayed writes at all, and now the file is sorted fully in RAM before any of it gets written.05:50
lotuspsychje!yay | matju05:51
ubottumatju: Glad you made it! :-)05:51
Halelujahlotuspsychje it works but latest radeon driver makes my video card faster05:51
lotuspsychjeHalelujah: wich sorce says that?05:51
HalelujahI say it05:51
HalelujahHow can i check current radeon version?05:52
lotuspsychjeHalelujah: if your current driver works good, why experiment others05:52
lotuspsychjeHalelujah: sudo lshw -C video, behind driver=05:52
Halelujahbecause latest driver is faster05:53
Halelujahi tried ubuntu 15 and my video was faster05:53
lotuspsychjeHalelujah: graphics performance doesnt depend on driver only, clean system,tweaking,other flavors05:53
Halelujahi have old video card05:54
lotuspsychjeHalelujah: well, experiment as you wish, its your system right05:54
Halelujahhow to update it?05:55
AldenIsZen_newer is not always better.05:55
cfhowlettHalelujah, get the source from amd, compile and install.05:55
Halelujahfrom amd website?05:56
Halelujahi use open source radeon driver05:56
matjulotuspsychje: thanks, but it's somewhat frightening that anything like that can happen, and that it can be fixed with a plain reboot. I've been using linux for 18½ years now and that's a first.05:57
Halelujahok i guess i need to research this by myself05:57
lotuspsychjematju: all depends what happened exactly in your system/logs05:58
lotuspsychjeHalelujah: 14.04 and 15.04 us the same drivers, if 15.04 was faster its because of another reason06:00
matjulotuspsychje: I had 3 stack traces in syslog, all for a warning named "plane A assertion failure (expected on, current off)", before rebooting, at different times in the evening.06:04
lotuspsychjematju: ok, you can also  view logs in realtime with tail -f /var/log/syslog next time06:05
lotuspsychjematju: seems fine to me besides alot of acpi lines06:09
matjulotuspsychje: I don't know what you see that could be wrong in that number of ACPI lines... they seem to mostly just refer to a damn lot of different hardware parts.06:14
lotuspsychjematju: you could try a no_acpi boot06:15
matjulotuspsychje: what would that achieve ?06:15
lotuspsychjematju: wich ubuntu version was this?06:15
lotuspsychjematju: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions06:17

Genawell i have generic and lowlatency of three different kernel releases08:29
Genaso six in total, and i am given to understand that dkms will manage kernel modules for all installed kernels08:30
Genai tried one other kernel just in case it might work, but it didn't. iwconfig doesn't find any wnics08:30
jancekjancekhello guys! i'm configuring ubuntu server and i want to install postfix for the first time. i'd only like to use it to send internal mail and as virtual mail service (so when i get mail to @mydomain.tld it redirects it based on config files). What security whould be applied to prevent spamming through my mail in this case? Thank you very much for help in advance! :)08:35
ikoniayou need to lock it down tight - the security will depend on your specific setup08:35
Genajancekjancek, when you say "send internal mail" do you mean a closed email system that can't send/receive in/out of it? or do you want to be able to receive email from the general Internet population, and you mean something else?08:37
Genajancekjancek, spamassassin is a popular option. i began using it some time ago (in debian) but the default configuration is still letting a lot of spam through undetected (specifically it gives very generous spam scores to the waves of spam coming out of the new TLDs like .science, .review, .xyz, etc)08:38
jancekjancekGena: internal mail as mail from services... along that i just want to forward mail which came to, lets say contact@mydomain.tld, to @gmail08:39
ikoniawhy don't you just let gmail manage that08:39
ikoniaan extra leg in the relay makes things more complex08:39
ikoniamore so if you're new to mail systems08:40
m1dnight1Hello guys. I have an usb drive that I mounted via fstab but it is not showing up in df. any tips?08:41
ikoniais it mounted ?08:41
jancekjancekikonia: i believe you're right, but i'd like to configure it without external mail providers08:42
ikoniajancekjancek: why ?08:42
ikoniafor what benifit ?08:42
m1dnight1ikonia: yes, i can navigate to the drive. but further inspection shows thats it is not listed in /proc/mounts eithers08:42
ikoniayou're making a system over complex and risking other issues, such as relay black listing,08:42
ikoniam1dnight1: can you post the output of the command "mount" in a pastebin please.08:43
Genajancekjancek, mail from services? like, daemons on your system/network?08:44
jancekjancekGena: yes08:44
Genajancekjancek, gmail can be configured to pull email via pop (and i think imap, too)08:45
Genajancekjancek, i would recommend trying to take gmail out of the loop. is it so that the email gets to your phone or something like that?08:45
ikoniagmail will be an email end point,08:46
ikoniajust configure it in gmail, and point the mx record at it08:46
ikoniasimple solution08:46
jancekjancekGena: i'd like to get 'rid' of telling my long gmail address, so i just need to forward everything that comes to contact@mydomain.tld to my actual @gmail address08:47
jancekjancekGena: and to get mail notifications from system daemons08:48
ikoniajancekjancek: 1.) configure gmail to accept mai from your domain 2.) point your MX record at gmail - job done08:48
ikoniaputting a relay step in the middle will make a complex solution08:48
jancekjancekikonia: there is not much to do to achieve what i want -> http://www.binarytides.com/postfix-mail-forwarding-debian/ ... but the problem is security if I enable this...08:49
ikoniajancekjancek: there is quite a lot to doing what you want08:55
ikoniasuch as valid secure handshake for the google relay, making sure you're not prone to scatterback-spam from your relay08:55
ikoniajancekjancek: any idiot can write a weak "how to" on the internet, the trick is to not be the idiot that blindly follows it08:55
Genajancekjancek, IMHO that is a very silly reason to set up this more complicated system you propose08:56
Genaikonia, i thought you had to pay for that service08:57
ikoniaGena: no idea, actually, I didn't think you did, but I don't keep up with pricing policy08:57
Genaikonia, you're probably right. the last time i knew anything about it was like, seven years ago08:57
jancekjancekikonia, Gena: how can I set up the gmail in front of everything then?08:58
ikoniajancekjancek: check the gmail docs08:59
ikonia(official docs)08:59

MrElendigbobsterman: https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/input/event-codes.txt too11:07
MrElendigxchatter: localhost:63111:08
MrElendigxchatter: sounds more like a hardware issue though, depending on just how the paper looks11:08
bobstermanMrElendig, thanks, this website is a goldmine11:09
xchatterPaper looks very nice. Good print. ALmost in the middle of a page I get a horizontal line which is weak and stronger towards the edges of the paper.11:09
MrElendigbobsterman: it is just the documentation bundled with the kernel source11:10
MrElendigxchatter: take a picture11:10
MrElendigor scan11:10
xchatterI just did a selftest printout. It says "if you can read this you are using the wrong driver for your printer"11:17
xchatterOn this sheet the line is 3/4 down the page.11:17
xchatterSo before I scan the page maybe I should try a different printer. I have the Samsung CLX-3185FW11:18

xchatterI will search for Samsung CLX-3185FW ppd11:19
MrElendigxchatter: samsung usually provides it, or you can extract it from the windows driver11:20
TangurinI agree! but when my client who want to upload files to their site wants access, I don't want them to use sftp right?11:20
MrElendigTangurin: you do11:20
TangurinI do...11:20
MrElendigTangurin: if you actually care about security11:20
xchatterMrElendig, http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/CLX-3185FW/XAA No Linux driver11:20
TangurinSo I should uninstall this FTP module and only use SFTP?11:21
MonkeyDustTangurin  keep calm and use sftp11:21
MrElendigTangurin: that or use http11:21
TangurinI thought SFTP gave accessed to the whole server. How can I restrict the user to only access its home directory?11:22
ducasseMrElendig: Yes, there is - Printing & Scan Driver (Driver) ver.V1.00.27.04 - Linux (MULTI LANGUAGE, 15.44 MB)11:22
MonkeyDustTangurin  the S means Safe, not Server11:23
Tangurinhaha yeah I got that but I thought it was the connection/data transfer which was safe. Now when I login via SFTP as a user, I can go to the root which can't be allowed11:24
MrElendigTangurin: https://bpaste.net/show/6a9eee5c310311:24
MrElendigTangurin: read the manual for details11:24
ducassexchatter: go to the page above, and download the driver there. it's a tar.gz, no idea what is inside...11:24
MrElendigTangurin: also you really should be running a MAC too11:25

What I want next is to have like "plugins", which have a function to send a message and to fetch messages. This for sms, jabber, emails, and so on (generic). Is there somethi11:36
bluenemong like this out there yet? Preferably in py or ruby. An example config for my idea: http://paste.debian.net/303967/ (very basic, but you might catch my drift). the example means fetch mails from the "fetch" email account, look in the message body on how to use them (or set overridable defaults in config) and send that via jabber.11:36

boodllebatducasse: cannot find -lamth11:52
MrElendigboodllebat: there are a lot of libs that provides those, incliding glibc11:53
ducasseboodllebat: -lm11:53
MrElendigboodllebat: man 3 sin11:54
boodllebatMrElendig: yes11:54
MrElendig"Link with -lm."11:55
TangurinMrElendig: debug1: Exit status 1 when I used the flag -vvv11:56
TangurinMrElendig: and a lot of other rows, don't know where to start11:56
boodllebatMrElendig: port audio is looking complex to me i should switch to ALSA i guess11:56
MrElendigboodllebat: you just want sound output in your app?11:56
TangurinMrElendig: isn't it because i set the shell nologin for the user ?11:56
TangurinMrElendig: maybe that's why I cant login via ssh?11:57
boodllebatMrElendig: yes working on a mp3 player , but i wanted it from scratch11:57
MrElendigboodllebat: gstreamer will make your life *a lot* easier11:57
MrElendigTangurin: try /bin/false instead11:57
MrElendigTangurin: and yes, it will prevent plain ssh login, which is what you want11:57
MrElendigthough ForceCommand should do that too11:58
dinetI have a quite annoying problem. Have three vhosts in apache and after a while apache stops responding. I got the sites to work yesterday but now it broke again11:59
MonkeyDustdinet  is that a server? if yes, there's also #ubuntu-server11:59
MrElendigboodllebat: gives you support for about any sound format out there "for free", and also seeking etc11:59
dinetthe sites is stored in ~/www/sitename with a link in /var/wwww11:59
TangurinMrElendig: that is very true! okey so it is a good sign I can't login via SSH, good! the bad sign is that I can't login via SFTP, is there I way to see why :S12:00
dinetMonkeyDust: dual purpouse12:00
MrElendigTangurin: test with scp12:00
MrElendigTangurin: also you can enable normal login agian to test that ssh itself works12:00
xchatterI deleted the printers and restarted printer. Now when I want to print a test page I get "Unable to add document to print job."12:00
boodllebatMrElendig: but i wanted to learn mp3 , as my thing is no more than mp3 so atleast that is the minimum thing which i should create from scratch rather than using full lib support12:00
xchatterAny idea?12:01
xchatterIn Cups it says: Samsung_CLX-3180_Series_on_192.168.0.13 (Paused, Accepting Jobs, Not Shared)12:01
TangurinMrElendig: what is normal login, to change to another shell? I can login via ssh as root12:01
MrElendigxchatter: read the cups log12:01
xchatterHow can I unpause it?12:01
ducassexchatter: you set up a new queue with the driver you downloaded? paused just means it's not printing now12:02
MrElendigTangurin: set the shell for the user to /bin/bash and commend out the ForceCommand12:02
ducassexchatter: "Accepting jobs" means it should print when asked to12:02
xchatterducasse, http://pastebin.com/cuYfxaw112:03
TangurinMrElendig: Ahh! I think we getting somewhere now! If I set shell - bash, I can login via SFTP and SSH, but If I set shell -  bin/false i cant login via ssh or sftp12:04
boodllebatMrElendig: hey i was trying to compile a port audio example code but it gives me erroe like this but first here is my compile statement "gcc -lrt -lasound -ljack -pthread -o test2 test.c -lm libportaudio.a" errors [ERRORS] http://paste.ubuntu.com/12170911/12:05
MrElendigTangurin: scp should work with shell set to false/nologin12:05
MrElendigunless silly things have been done in pam12:06
xchatterMe and my buddy from work had an argument a month ago. Windows vs Linux. He said that one needs a computer science degree in order to print out a document. And I defended Linux .... But only because usually I never printer as I am just learning.12:06
TangurinMrElendig: I don't have SCP in transmit, can't I get it to work with SFTP12:06
ducassexchatter: what directories do you have under /usr/share/ppd?12:06
xchatterI can now understand what he meant. :P12:06

TangurinMrElendig: http://serverfault.com/questions/420068/shell-bin-false-allowing-sftp-access-ubuntu-12-04 may this be something? I don't understand it by my self but maybe you do?12:08
ducassexchatter: ok, and under uld-samsung, do you have anything like *3180*?12:08
MrElendigTangurin: sure you remembered to add the forececommand etc to the config?12:09
=== Tsunami1 is now known as Guest73837
xchatterducasse, http://pastebin.com/2xdwqDqW12:10
ducassexchatter: try running 'cupstestppd /usr/share/ppd/uld-samsung/Samsung_CLX-3180_Series.ppd'12:10
TangurinMrElendig: no I am not sure I did! I'm sorry, it's my lack of knowledge which making this so difficult for me and not for you haha =) I copied your config snippet and pasted into sshd_config, where you have ForceCommand internal-sftp12:11
MrElendigTangurin: might need Subsystem       sftp    internal-sftp too12:11
TangurinMrElendig: I got this line wich is not a comment: Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server12:12
MrElendigTangurin: change that to sftp-internal12:12
xchatterducasse, http://pastebin.com/3RGu5aPv12:12
TangurinMrElendig: gahh! doesn't work! When i try to login transmit say it might be wrong username or password which is not12:15
* MrElendig runs off for dinner12:15
ducassexchatter: that looks good. the warnings are irrelevant. and this looks like the right ppd from what I can see. why it complains about the 'driver information file' in the first log I have no idea, and I don't know how to test them. how did you set up this queue - did you select the ppd manually?12:17
Saulo(away) not here.12:18
xchatterducasse, I deleted the printer because it was paused all the time and installed the other option (Samsung CLX-3180 Series (SEC001599964B16) (Samsung Samsung CLX-3180 Series))12:20
xchatterNow I can print again. Same problem, though. Black line12:20
xchatterI was trying to scan. But now I can not scan anymore to USB12:20
ducassexchatter: that could be because this is the same driver you were using before. _or_ it could be a hardware issue, a clogged nozzle or whatever.12:21
ducassexchatter: what are you trying to scan with? xsane? when I do that I need to select a different driver for USB than for over the network, but that is Epson.12:22
xchatterI can not scan again. Where can I upload the pdf?12:23
xchatterraphishshare is no longer12:23
xchatterducasse, http://www.xup.in/dl,27067062/185401.PDF/12:25
xchatterducasse, now there is two lines bottom and top12:25
xchatterthe other smudged don't exist on the pager12:25
ducassexchatter: is the line always in *exactly* the same place?12:27
xchatterducasse, no12:27
xchatterducasse, but I am just seeting that part of the text is also cut off12:28
xchatterducasse, look at the make and model line12:28
xchatterducasse, it only says recommen12:28
Linnakhi, I use docky and i'd like an application menu launcher on it. is there an app for that?12:29
ducassexchatter: yeah, but I've seen that on other printers that have worked just fine otherwise, probably just a bug in the layout of the test page12:30
ducassexchatter: the smudge thing looks sort of like a physical problem, ink/toner smeared on a roller or something12:30
ducassexchatter: you could try booting from a live cd, preferably one that doesn't use the same version of drivers and print from there12:32
MonkeyDustLinnak  find ratmenu in the repos12:32
xchatterducasse, I just printed the first page of the Samsung user manual/pdf). The line is there. :( http://www.xup.in/dl,46673444/190354.PDF/12:34
ducassexchatter: yes, but nothing is cut off like on the test page. as I said, the line looks like a physical problem. the best way to make sure would be to try printing from osx or windows and see if the line is still there. do you have a machine with either?12:36
ducassexchatter: or a windows vm?12:36
xchatterNo, only Linux12:37
xchatterWhy does the Samsung have a self cleaning mechanism.12:37
xchatterWeird, there is nothing in the manual about it.12:38
ducassexchatter: then you basically have no way of knowing... even if it has a self cleaning mechanism there could be something on a roller that causes this and doesn't get cleaned - that's what it looks like.12:38
TangurinHow can I restrict access via SSH but allow access via SFTP12:39
ducassexchatter: consider installing windows in a vm if you can, or get a copy of the hiren boot cd. it has xp pe on it that you can boot into, install a printer driver and try it12:40
soupnanodesukarTangurin, run ssh on a different port, or simply don't use a ssh server. :)12:40
Tangurinsoupnanodesukar: But I want ssh for the root?12:41
soupnanodesukarTangurin: then use a different port12:41
xchatterducasse, ok. Maybe another day. I have to print out resumes urgently and probably have to go to the office. Thx for all your help.12:42
Tangurinsoupnanodesukar: I have shell: bin/false on the users, so I cannot login via SSH now, and not via SFTP either, how would it help to change port now?12:42
ducassexchatter: sorry i couldn't help :(12:42
LinnakMonkeyDust I've installed ratmenu but I can't even find it12:45
xchatterducasse, one last thing: I just found this: https://de.ifixit.com/Guide/Repairing+Samsung+clx-3175+Colour+Laser+Printer+Fix+black+vertical+lines/918312:45
xchatterducasse, what do you think. The lines on my paper don't look similar, though12:45
xchatterducasse, also they are vertical12:45
ducassexchatter: I really don't know if it's related, but it looks like something similar is causing your problem. it looks like a smear on a roller or something - i can't tell without knowing more about the physical layout inside the printer12:47
xchatterducasse, ok. thx for your help12:47

paffyHi. I have a harddrive which used to have OS on it. I formatted it in windows using right-click on the drive then "format". But as I understand, that does not remove the bootloader on it. How can I remove that as well? (I'm on linux now)12:53
MonkeyDustpaffy  ubuntu linux?12:54
paffyMonkeyDust: yah via USB12:54
MrElendigpaffy: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/whatever bs=446 count=112:54
MrElendigI smell a xyproblem though12:54
MonkeyDustpaffy  open gparted, delete the partition you need... careful, don't delete too much12:54
MrElendigMonkeyDust: gparted doesn't do what he asked for12:55
gott3rfunk3n83Gparted easy to use with gui12:55
MonkeyDustMrElendig  the idea the make a complete clean partition, guess i misunderstood, then12:55
LinnakMonkeyDust What did you do with that?12:56
MrElendigthe bootloader usually lives in the mbr12:56
MrElendigfirst 440/446 bytes12:56
MrElendigif grub then it also embeds in the space after the mbr but before the first partition12:56
boodllebatwhat is ubuntu package for libasound2-dev ?12:56
MrElendigor on a ef02 type partition12:56
MrElendigsince it is too large to fit entierly in the mbr12:56
paffyMrElendig: ok so the drive is "/dev/sda". GParted says the first sector of the partition in it is "2048".12:57
boodllebatMrElendig: what is ubuntu package for libasound2-dev ?12:57
MrElendigthat is normal12:57

MrElendigor use apt12:59
chrinuxciao a tutti12:59

gregi’ve broken the login process on my 15.04 desktop computer. in trying to get a usb headset working i saw it suggested to delete ~/.config/pulse and let it rebuild itself on next login, so i deleted the folder and logged out. when i tried to login the system won’t leave the password screen. it will return to the screen with error if i enter the wrong password. but with right password the password field disappears and nothing13:45
gregelse happens. no desktop background or icons, no shortcut bar, no icons across the top of the screen. i’ve reinstalled pulseaudio and alsa-base and now have a ~/.config/pulse folder with files in it, but that hasn’t changed anything. i’ve also done apt-get install —reinstall ubuntu-desktop and unity, but still no progress.  I can access the box through another tty and it works fine, I even created a new user and tried13:45
greglogging in as them, but got the same result through the UI.  I’ve looked in /var/log/syslog and don’t see any obvious errors about what might be going wrong. I’m open to any ideas/suggestions on things to try to get this fixed. Any thoughts? TIA13:45

greg.xsession-errors has a message in it, checking that out13:52
cfhowlettgreg, then whatever you did is not trivial.  personally, I'd reinstall.13:52
ElectricAlanI theoretically know my way around a unix machine, but I'm hardly as experienced as I might like to be13:52
gregcfhowlett: yeah, thinking i’ve really horked it. hoping i don’t have to reinstall, but it’s looking more and more like i will13:53
ducassegreg: if you do need to reinstall, consider using something like apt-clone to replicate your package status to the new install, so you don't need to install all your software manually. but take a good long look at ~/.xsession-errors and the X + lightdm log files first13:55
gregducasse: wasn’t aware of apt-clone, will look into it. looking at .xsession-errors now. where can i find the X + lightdm log files?13:56

ElectricAlanI actually only just now did the installation, this is a fresh ubuntu iso I got from mirror.internode.on.net/pub a week or two ago14:12
ducasseElectricAlan: it's not installed by default on the desktop version, and if you haven't installed it, then it's not really surprising that you can't connect :)14:12
ElectricAlanam I going to look stupid now for not realising I'd missed an obvious step14:13
CtrlCHow can I call the library docs installed using apt-get?14:13
ducasseElectricAlan: you can just install the package 'ssh', it depends on both client and server14:14
ElectricAlanfor some reason I thought ssh would be installed by default14:14
ElectricAlanthat reason is probably that I'm an ignorant fool who has been out of the game for far too long14:14
* ElectricAlan is unemployed14:14
CtrlCthey're in /usr/share/doc/ but should I call them manually?14:15
ducasseElectricAlan: it's actually not too surprising that a server process is not running by default on a desktop distribution, I think, although I would guess quite a lot of people tend to install it.14:16
ElectricAlanok, so I installed the ssh package14:16
ducasseElectricAlan: do a 'ps ax | grep sshd' to check that the server is running14:16

m1dnight1CtrlC: what is the problem?14:18
CtrlCm1dnight1: "CtrlC: How can I call the library docs installed using apt-get? "14:18

ElectricAlanwell it looks like the ssh service is running in my vm, I can connect to localhost from inside the vm, but not from putty14:18
m1dnight1port 22 needs to be accessible?14:19
m1dnight1what library docs?14:19
CtrlCm1dnight1: for example libbox2d-doc14:20
ducasseElectricAlan: then I think there is a problem either with your vbox setup or on the windows side. desktop ubuntu doesn't have any iptables rules by default, so nothing should be blocking it.14:20

RedBlueHello, can I use a livecd like an alternate cd? e.g. can I just install ubuntu with the old fashioned dos-like interface without having to go into live mode with the desktop environment and everything?15:20
ducasseRedBlue: use the server installer15:20
cfhowlettRedBlue, server has a cli interface.  I think mini does as well15:21
ducasseRedBlue: just make sure you install a desktop if you want one, the server installer doesn't do that by default15:22
arthyreAlecTaylor: maybe  env DISPLAY=:0.0 gksudo ?15:22
RedBlueducasse, cfhowlett but does the server install come with everything the normal cd comes with? e.g. I don't want to miss any packages but I don't want any extra server administration packages. ducasse ok how do I choose to install "desktop" using a server cd?15:22
AlecTaylorarthyre: Same error15:22
cfhowlettRedBlue, no.  thus ducasse suggest to install the desktop packages.15:23
ducasseRedBlue: you can choose desktops in the server installer15:23
ducasseRedBlue: and just don't select for instance 'file and print server' and you won't get them15:23
cfhowlettducasse, sever includes desktops?  really?15:24
RedBluedo I get to select that in the first steps or in the last steps?15:24
MonkeyDustafter server installation, you can install a GUI, if you wish15:24
ducassecfhowlett: yes, i'm pretty sure you can install the common desktops directly from the menu15:24
MonkeyDust*after* server installation has finished, that is15:25

MonkeyDustRedBlue  a server installation has no GUI, but you can install it15:27

AlecTaylorarthyre: I am in GNOME Terminal running bash15:28
arthyreAlecTaylor: type xeyes ;)15:28
MonkeyDustRedBlue  i guess that would come down to the same15:28
AlecTaylorioria: Correct. So what's the solution?15:28
AlecTaylorarthyre: :P15:28
RedBlueMonkeyDust, I'd rather install the desktop during server install15:29
MonkeyDustRedBlue  you can also install a server inside a desktop, with tasksel (task select)15:29
ioriaAlecTaylor, take a look ... http://askubuntu.com/questions/541926/blank-screen-on-tty7-after-upgrading-from-14-04-to-14-1015:29
RedBlueMonkeyDust, do you mean I can install a server using a desktop cd?15:29
MonkeyDustRedBlue  yes, apache etc, but after the base installation has finished15:30
ioriaAlecTaylor, it's a different issue ... but the error is the same15:30
ducasseRedBlue: you need to choose 'manual package selection' during the install, or use apt-get after booting it up.15:31
=== mg__ is now known as mg-
MonkeyDustRedBlue  what do you want to achieve? why can you not decide to install desktop or server?15:31
RedBlueWhat I really want is skip grub installation. I heard you can skip this only in the alternate, dos-like installers, hence I'm looking for that15:32
hwpplayer1I'll be back15:32
RedBlueremember older ubuntus had a "skip bootloader installation" box?15:33
cfhowlettRedBlue, see this is where clear communication matters.  a LOT. had you simply asked that question in the first place ... YES you skip botloader.15:33
AlecTaylorioria: SO I should install gnome-shell?15:33
reisioRedBlue: I bet you can just alias grub-install to true15:33
RedBluecfhowlett, sorry I didn't choose the best question. So how do you do it?15:33
cfhowlettRedBlue, I believe it's on the choose install type screen advanced options?15:34

AlecTaylorSame error15:35
ioriaAlecTaylor, no, unity comes with ubuntu-desktop15:36
cfhowlettRedBlue, pretty sure all the installers offer the no-grub option.15:36

m451hi guys. I need help with my 14.04 xserver config. I'm running ubuntu on a ESXi 6.0 env and using PCI Passthrough for my GPU. I already tested the GPU to be working with the proietary ATI drivers on a not virtualized Ubuntu 14.04. Everything works, Ubuntu does recognize the GPU and is able to install the drivers. After the reboot the login screen comes up, but when I try to login after a few seconds of black I get pushed back to the login screen.15:37

biblasHi, I'm having trouble changing my monitors refresh rate, I'm trying "xrandr -r 120", it sais the current refresh rate IS 120 but looking in my monitors menues it sais it's only 60?15:39
RedBluecfhowlett, well, I'm on ubuntustudio (xubuntu) and I didn't see any option anywhere to skip grub installtation. All I can do is select a partition for grub installation, but not even "none" is given. MonkeyDust I'm trying not to install grub from distro because I know for a fact that this distro's grub installation will cause problems later, problems like lots of entries, invalid entries, duplicates and so on. I don't know why but it has happened always w15:40
RedBlueith Ubuntustudio, so what I want to do instead is install Ubuntustudio without grub, and then go to one of my already installed distros and run sudo update-grub.15:40

ben_gWhat would be best for that? Starting from a server version and installing a GUI, or starting from a client version and installing the server software?16:26
MonkeyDustit's always 'the cousin'16:26
tallesSo, Ubuntu is a good option16:26
yuniorhas anybody experience with amazon ec2??16:27
ben_gYeah, I previously used Ubuntu (the client version) and I found it very user-friendly, so that's why I want to put some version of Ubuntu on it.16:27
tallesanyone knows some channel about series, or MR. Robot?16:27
SchrodingersScat!alis | talles16:27
ubottutalles: alis is a services bot that can help you find channels. Read "/msg alis help list" . For more help or questions relating to alis, please join #freenode. Example usage: /msg alis list #ubuntu* or /msg alis list *http*16:27
SchrodingersScat!ask | yunior16:28
ubottuyunior: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience16:28
yuniorok i understand16:28
yuniori have an application server running in ubuntu 14.0416:29
SchrodingersScatben_g: imo it would be easier to start with the gui/flavor you want16:29
yuniorit is WSO2 Applitacion Server16:29
yuniorit runs in port 9443 and 976316:29
yuniorbut i see is open from inside my system16:29
yuniorbut from outside is not16:30
yuniorwhat can i do?16:30
ben_gSchrodingersScat: So the client version is completely suitable for use on a server?16:30
m451anyone aware of the mapping of the the BUSID output from lspci to the xorg.conf BusID within the Device Section? E.g. lspci will give me 0b:00.0 but xorg uses a format like "PCI:11:0:0"16:30
yuniori noticed is listening at that port but in an ipv6 address16:31
arthyretalles: don't start studying internet protocols with irc .. i suggest start smaller -> gopher16:31
SchrodingersScatben_g: not exactly, but if you want something like xfce then it would be imo easier to install xubuntu then add on any software you want, than to install ubuntu-server and add on xubuntu-desktop or similar.  in the end it's probably not that much different but I would suspect less issues going the former route.16:32
tallesLubuntu is pretty good with xfce16:33
ben_gOk, thank you.16:33
catalasei cannot edit /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json because it is owned by debian-transmission16:34
catalasedoesn't make any sense even when i run sudo i cannot do it16:34
ben_gAnd for a server, I guess the most lightweight OS is best? So Lubuntu?16:35
catalasenor can i stop the process transmission-daemon16:35
yuniori have an application server running in ubuntu 14.04 it is WSO2 Applitacion Server it runs in port 9443 and 9763 but i see is open from inside my system but from outside is not i noticed is listening at that port but in an ipv6 address16:35
arthyretalles: in the channel so you can get others input :)  i now think http would be better for you to start on .. more for the future then the past16:35
mlvmhnhello, how do i updtae my qbittorrent program using Terminal?16:36
SchrodingersScatben_g: that reasoning makes sense, or if you're partial to one over the other.16:37
ben_gI actually have never used any version other than normal Ubuntu, but I guess they're quite similar in useage?16:38
SchrodingersScatben_g: pretty much, in my experience they're close enough anyway.  especially if you're trying to go more cli, some package differences with file managers, text editors, etc.16:40
ben_gOk, thank you.16:40

stangelandwhen i untar a file tar -zxvf, does the ordering matter?16:46

SchrodingersScatdoes f matter since it takes a parameter?16:50
m451I keep getting the "fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0@11:0:0) found" error in my x-0.log even thought my xorg.conf has no PCI:0@11:0:0 device configured ANYwhere16:50
m451log sais it's using /etc/X11/xorg.conf but if i check that config there is no PCI device with that BusID16:51
m451is lightdm using any other xorg.conf?16:51
AeyesiHai, question for active ones, ...When it comes for parrents.... LTS 14.04 or better 15.04 ?16:58
MonkeyDustAeyesi  14.04 has longer support16:59
Aeyesii am asking just cuz some folks on sum forum said that LTS is mainly more bugfree instead of short-term ones ~17:00
Aeyesiunsure then, didnt tried those *yet*17:01
ObrienDave!lts | Aeyesi17:01
ubottuAeyesi: LTS means Long Term Support. Until 12.04 LTS versions of Ubuntu were supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; since 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) LTS versions will be supported for 5 years on the desktop and server. The latest LTS version of Ubuntu is !Trusty (Trusty Tahr 14.04)17:01

roboguy`Hey, I was messing around with my keyboard settings yesterday (mostly trying some different things with capslock) and now I'm running into some issues17:01
dangoo87hey there, I'm having issues getting ubuntu to recognise my soundcard - the only device listed is the hdmi monitor speakers, I've tried a few fixes from this: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/11/fix-hda-intel-realtek-alc887-no-sound.html and linked threads: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=314383 but so far I'm having no luck, does anyone have any experience of this and how to resolve?  My mobo is the ASUS Z170-A with onboard sound17:02

ObrienDavedangoo87, sudo apt-get install alsamixer17:05
SuperLagIf you do, and there's a package you want to keep at a certain version, and excluded from updates, is "pinning" how you accomplish that?17:05
dangoo87ObrienDave, unable to locate package.  It's 14.04.03 if that helps17:05

dangoo87ObrienDave, alsa utils said already installed to latest version17:12
abb0and when i extracted the file i dled...i try to move it to the usr/share/themes folder and it wont let me17:12
abb0there are no permissions allowed to mess with that folder i guess, iwas wondering if there was something i could do17:12
xanguaabb0: creathe ".themes" directory in your home17:12
ObrienDavedangoo87, sudo apt-get install --reinstall alsa-utils17:12
abb0how exactly would i do that just curious. is there a cmd or just right click and create folder17:13
ObrienDavedangoo87, now try alsamixer17:14
dangoo87same issue, no such file or directory17:14
ObrienDavereally weird17:14
dangoo87i just tried searching for alsa in the main unity search thingy, and i get alsabase.conf (something I've tried to edit to fix it), and alsa-utils.service17:15

abb0hopefully thats correct17:17
abb0im stilla noobie17:17
ObrienDavedangoo87, i'm out of ideas. stick around. someone can help you fix it17:18
roboguy`unity-control-center also crashes with this error when I try to go mouse settings: Settings schema 'org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.touchpad' is not installed17:18
dangoo87thanks for trying ObrienDave, should I periodically just ask for help then, every 10 minutes or so incase someone new appears with more ideas?  I'm not sure what the best etiquette is for this IRC17:19

xanguaso I exist¿17:22
ObrienDavein the 5th dimension ;P17:22
abb0lol i did what you asked17:22
wafflejockdangoo87: if you run alsamixer in the terminal it's not running is that the issue?17:23
abb0but uhhh still having trouble17:23
wafflejockdangoo87: you should have it in /usr/bin/alsamixer17:23
dangoo87wafflejock, that appears to be the case - it's not running17:23
dangoo87let me check that directory17:23
reisioxangua: donc je suis17:23
dangoo87"is not a directory"17:24
abb0im bout to give up ef it17:24
abb0thanks anyways17:24
wafflejockdangoo87: if you run, dpkg -L alsa-utils, it will print a big list of all the files the package has in it and should include that path near the top17:24
VoyageHow to calibrate display? Can someone please help me fix the brightness and contrast of my lcd. I really am pissed. (our of 100 I guess) what are the optimal values for long time usage. Using kubuntu17:24
wafflejockdangoo87: it should be a file17:24
wafflejockdangoo87: /usr/bin is the directory17:24
wafflejockdangoo87: but alsamixer should be in there if you do, ls -al /usr/bin/alsamixer17:24
RedBlueNot directly ubuntu-related, but probably folks here know the answer: when I create an image using clonezilla, can I then move that image to another hard drive/partition and restore from there, or does it have to be where I specifically told clonezilla to make in order for the recovery to work?17:25
dangoo87ok, working through this now wafflejock - thanks for this help17:25
wafflejockdangoo87: if it's there then just running it on the command line should work cause /usr/bin is in your PATH environment variable17:25
wafflejockdangoo87: np17:25
xanguaabb0: now you extract the theme in ~/.themes and you might also need unitytweak tool to select a theme other than ambiance/radiance , for icons you need the .icons directory17:25
AttoxI have a big problem regarding my keyboard layout17:27
dangoo87http://paste.ubuntu.com/12175579 @ wafflejock - is that the desired outcome for that command?17:27
wafflejockdangoo87: if you don't see the binary with ls -al /usr/bin/alsamixer, then something got corrupt with the install, you can sudo apt-get install alsa-utils --reinstall17:27
AttoxI use a German keyboard and I can't get the left alt key to work17:27
wafflejockdangoo87: yeah on line 12 in your pastebin it shows that binary17:27
AttoxI used xbindkeys and a command line dpkg tool, didn't work17:27
wafflejockdangoo87: so the package seems to have the file but verify the file is there on your filesystem if so you shouldn't have an issue running it17:28
dangoo87it's there, or something is there anyway (i just browsed to it), should I just cd to that directory then try to run alsamixer?17:28
wafflejockdangoo87: yea you can try that probably run ./alsamixer while in /usr/bin but typically /usr/bin is set in your PATH so you can just run those binaries from anywhere17:29

AHemlocksLieObrienDave: and coincidentally bad DVD?17:36
AHemlocksLieI mean, possible17:36

AHemlocksLieI'm setting ImgBurn to verify it against the ISO file now17:38
ioriaAHemlocksLie, hd is good ?17:40
AHemlocksLieioria: the last time I tried was the furthest it got, and it was just trying to set up and format the ext4 partition. It usually didn't even get that far.17:41
AHemlocksLieImgBurn just finished verifying, and the disc is perfect17:41
AHemlocksLieSo media is good, hard drive shouldn't be an issue because it often hangs before even TOUCHING the hard drive17:41
ioriaAHemlocksLie, when hangs , exactly ?17:42
AHemlocksLieWell, it has managed to carve out the partitions before, but it never got to the point of doing any actual formatting17:42

huschkesome question...i have 64 bit system with 4gb ram but taskmanager only shows 3919mb ram ...is that normal ?17:44
ObrienDavehuschke, yes, that's normal17:44
AHemlocksLieTJ-: the memory issue actually sounds pretty plausible. Load to bad RAM, then fail to read from it because it's bad. But I never have any issues with it otherwise17:45
huschkeObrienDave:  why ??? 4gb is 409617:45
huschkeand why only 3919mb17:45
AHemlocksLieioria: amd 64 bit 6 core processor, 16 GB of RAM, 1 TB hard drive, GTX 570 graphics card17:45
TJ-AHemlocksLie: I've seen modules go funny without obvious cause. memtest86+ usually reveals the problems. Mostly I find simply firmly reseating the modules is enough to fix it too17:46
huschkeObrienDave: windows shows in systemsettings full 4gb17:46
ioriahuschke, pretty good17:46
drkjstrhuschke: a small amount of ram is always reserve for the OS, so it will never show the full amount you have installed as available.17:46
huschkeioria: why does it shows only 3919mb on 64bit system17:46
ioriahuschke, sorry ... it was for AHemlocksLie17:47
ObrienDavehuschke, just a math conversion issue. not to worry17:47
drkjstrhuschke: if it was a 32-bit system, it would show 3.0 - 3.5 GB available, if it is a non-PAE kernel/17:47
huschkewhat you all mean ?17:47
TJ-AHemlocksLie: if you want to verify the hash on a USB device (where the device size is usually larger than the ISO size) here's a shell fragment I use to do that (adjust initial variables as required)17:47
TJ-AHemlocksLie: USB=/dev/sdc; ISO=/var/lib/libvirt/images/iso/ubuntu-14.04-server-amd64.iso; SIZE=$(sudo stat -c %s ${ISO}); sudo dd if=${USB} bs=${SIZE} count=1 | sha1sum17:47

huschkedrkjstr: 32 bit sy<stem shows me 4010mb and 64 bit system always 3919mb17:48
AHemlocksLieOkay, thanks for the advice, TJ-, ioria, ObrienDave17:48
huschkewhats wrong there17:48
TJ-huschke: With a 64-bit system the kernel has to reserve some memory for a DMA 'trampoline' for devices that cannot address > 4GiB17:49
ObrienDavehuschke, NOTHING is wrong. it's just a math conversion issue. sheesh17:49
TJ-huschke: if you want to know how memory is allocated, read "/var/log/dmesg"17:49
ioriahuschke, also check /proc/meminfo17:51
AEL-HDoes ubuntu have something similar to the 'host' command? It is not available on ubuntu 12.0417:59
pauljwhuschke, what you should take away from this is that as long as you have sufficient memory on your system, linux is going to efficiently manage it for you.  just ignore the numbers.  as long as you aren't having system problems, leave the driving to linux.17:59

squeakynebHow does one upgrade an unsupported Ubuntu (13.10 specifically) to a newer version that IS supported? It's just giving me a "no new release found" when I do the release upgrade thing. We've tried many google-able suggestions, mostly from out-of-date forum threads and wiki articles. What should we do?23:13

ObrienDavek1l_ is good at that ;P23:16

ubottusqueakyneb: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades23:16
k1l_squeakyneb: /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades would be the cli config for that23:16
wileeeUdita, You will get help, just takes a few when you have a 2 tb HD with data needed not working as is expected, if empty we would be done, or backed up.23:16
squeakynebthat EOL wiki page didn't help a whole bunch, already tried the old-releases repo :(23:19
squeakynebthis isn't my laptop either so it's possible that the user of it broke something >.<23:19
k1l_squeakyneb: can you put that outputs in a pastebin? lsb_release -d, uname -a, cat /etc/apt/sources.list, cat /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades23:20
=== lolcat1 is now known as lolcat
squeakynebk1l_: hilarious story: colleague apparently got the upgrade to work in the last 5 minutes of the day before we clocked off on friday, so it is running 14.04 but the packages are broken as hell23:24
squeakynebwe need to use more sticky notes :D23:24

cluelessperson_hey guys, I'm trying to figure out how to control my keyboard backlight with linux and windows.   I've found I CAN shut it off by running the command.23:33
cluelessperson_echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/thinkpad_acpi/leds/tpacpi::thinklight/brightness23:33
cluelessperson_however, I can't seem to turn it back on without doing the keyboard key combination.  Fn+Space, that I suspect is bios triggered or something23:33
cluelessperson_cat max_brightness   shows 255.23:33
cluelessperson_cat max_brightness > brightness     doesn't do anything23:34

David_W617Can someone tell me why my /boot partition (/dev/sda5) is not recognized by grub? http://paste.ubuntu.com/12179784/23:54
Bashing-omUdita: On sda drive there is no efi partition to support UEFI; what results when you change in the firmware to boot 'CCSM' and try and boot the system ?23:56
Bashing-omscott606: " Input/output error " could be from a number of reasons. How many 'primary' partitions on on the hard drive ? - in the MBR scheme there is a maximum of 4 .23:59
