Bashing-omscott606: 4 primary partitions is all one can have in the MBR partitioning scheme . Show us in a pastebin what is now present ' sudo fdisk -lu | pastebinit ' .00:05

Bashing-omscott606: ObrienDave has a good point . show us the command you used to get the 'fdisk' output .00:09

scott606my hd went bad .. pulled this one out of the drawer and booted from a live usb to install xubuntu on it .. got as far as pulling up gparted and seeing it says unallocated .. clicking create partition table .. and getting the error00:16
scott606Error fsyncing/closing /dev/sda: Input/output error00:16
ObrienDavecould be another bad drive00:16
scott606is there a way to jog it back to life lol?00:16
ObrienDaveonly with a low-level formatter, afaik00:17
scott606is that something i can install on this xubuntu live stick?00:17
ObrienDavei'm not sure what package would do that. usually done with a program supplied by the drive manufacturer00:18
scott606I see00:19
ObrienDaveyou can usually find such utilities on the manufacturers website. could not tell you if there's a linux version00:20
squintyscott606,  might be an idea to check your connectors   should be two  one for data and the other for power.   also, some drive manufacturers had testing software available at their support web sites.00:21
OerHeksnormally one would go into the bios, after adding a HDD.00:23
OerHeksmaybe the drive is oke, just installing is the issue00:23
OerHeks(maybe the bios has the old hdd as data too)00:24
ObrienDaveis it's a SATA drive, no BIOS tweaking is necessary. if not, yes, you must tweak the BIOS00:24
OerHeksjust in, save & out00:24

cluelessperson_but 255 to turn it on doesn't work, nor 1, 200:31
OerHekscluelessperson_, then boot again, and read the value of /sys/devices/platform/thinkpad_acpi/leds/tpacpi::thinklight/brightness before you changed it?00:32
cluelessperson_OerHeks: I believe it was 0 ?00:33
cluelessperson_OerHeks: I think it was 0 with the keyboard backlight on as well00:33
OerHekscluelessperson_, sorry, that makes no sense. making it 0 turns it off, but it was 0 before that ?00:34
dimitry7Hi there, how can I find words with more than 3 letters 'p' in them?00:34
cluelessperson_OerHeks: it does make sense.  Maybe the driver writes the value to the bios and keeps the value in the file 0.  I turned the keyboard on now and it remains 0.  I echo 0 > brightness and it turns it off again.00:35

Apteryxdaftykins: didn't work :|03:32
Apteryxstill got the pesky login screen03:32
Apteryxwhich for some reason refuse to let my dad in (password is good...)03:32
Apteryxmy idea was to boot to terminal and take a look at dmesg03:33
daftykinsas in you put it after 'quiet splash' ?03:33
Apteryx(no virtual terminals because of sucky AMD closed source driver)03:33
daftykinsoh, well if you want to boot without X what are you hoping to achieve if you have no TTYs? :P03:34
Apteryxdaftykins: oh right. I'd get the same blank screen? :|03:34
daftykinsboot with nomodeset03:35
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter03:35
Apteryxubottu: I'm pretty sure nomodeset is already on, I think the AMD driver would crash if it wasn't03:35
daftykinsthat's rubbish03:36
daftykinsand ubottu is a bot.03:36
Apteryxdaftykins: Well, the blob doesn't support modesetting, right? So if it's active, it ought to cause problems to fglrx? At least I thought I remember I had issues like this last time I had to wrestle with it.03:37
daftykinsnever seen peeps have issues03:38
daftykinswhen you say the password doesn't work, do you really mean it boots you out to the login screen?03:38
ApteryxI think I remember now... If I tried activating modesetting, the open source driver would be loaded up really early and prevent fglrx from being used.03:39
daftykinsthat also sounds wrong03:39
daftykinsanyhow, can't solve imaginary scenarios :)03:40
Apteryxdaftykins: it doesn't say the password is bad; my guess is that it crashes trying to initialize Xorg or some X component... But without access to the logs I can only guess.03:42
daftykinsi think you're ruining this one with assumption03:42
Apteryxdaftykins: Well I can try it on my on machine, entering a bad password. I'm pretty sure there is some kind of message telling me password failed.03:43
daftykinsno that's not even vaguely comparable03:44

radiel892EriC^^: ok, i'll try that now04:08
radiel892EriC^^, i press esc and the 5 dots go red, then i press esc again and the ubuntu logo appears above the red dots, no text shows04:12
EriC^^radiel892: ok, try booting without quiet splash in the kernel line04:13
radiel892EriC^^, do i just erase "quiet splash" from the boot line in grub or do i just erase "quiet"04:16
EriC^^radiel892: erase quiet splash04:16
radiel892EriC^^, without quiet splash, the system boots now :> ?04:18
radiel892and gets to login screen04:18
EriC^^heh :D04:18
radiel892EriC^^, i wonder why that is, i can't login as guest it just bounces back to login screen04:20
EriC^^radiel892: maybe it's a graphics driver problem04:21
radiel892(i havn't been given the password to the main account, it makes things harder to fix)04:21
radiel892EriC^^, perhaps, the last thing i did before it broke the swap was installed nvidia driver from apt04:22
EriC^^try to remove it and install the one it had04:22
radiel892system crashes with novaue(spelling)04:23
EriC^^radiel892: try a different driver maybe04:23

SuperLagresearcher123: /var/cache/apt/archives/04:59
SuperLagresearcher123: all the packages you download are stored there.04:59
ObrienDaveunless you have used auto-remove05:00
researcher123SuperLag: OK. Thanks. Can I install from  /var/cache/apt/archives/ freshly on new laptop?05:00
SuperLagresearcher123: and do a search for --get-selections and --set-selections. I don't remember the exact format, but they're arguments to dpkg05:00
SuperLagresearcher123: copying those file into the same location on your new laptop... that'll keep you from having to download over again05:01
researcher123SuperLag: ok05:01
SuperLagresearcher123: but you still need to get info about what packages you have installed05:02
researcher123SuperLag: I know what packages I have installed05:02
SuperLagresearcher123: do not take my word for it... but I believe you do "dpkg --get-selections > my_package_list" then on your target machine "dpkg --set-selections < my_package_list"05:03

somsiplimbera: I wouldn't use it for that personally. But for dev work and testing it might be easier to get code working and use a more thorough solution in production05:56
limberayou mean you wouldn't use postmark/mailgun?05:56
somsiplimbera: then again, just discovered mailcatcher myself for local dev.05:57
somsiplimbera: If i have a project that sends emails through a provider, I'd use the provider. If I have a project that only sends admin alerts, I may use sendemail as a easy fix05:57

TomyWorkObrienDave it's for a couple of days while i'm using both machines. not going to buy one just for that :)07:33
aukTomyWork: last i checked, synergy is actually open source07:33
ObrienDaveeasiest way i know of07:33
aukTomyWork: you just have to compile yourself for windows07:33
ducasselotuspsychje: i'm kind of thinking that too, was just hoping to avoid it. guess it's worth a shot, since i will need to reformat anyway if it doesn't work...07:33
TomyWorkauk no windows involved :)07:33
aukTomyWork: then synergy should be in the repos, no?07:33
TomyWorkand odd... the first thing on their page is the get button and that shows a sum of money07:34
TomyWorki'll try07:34
aukTomyWork: yeah, they switched to that a while (year?) back07:34

Kalimerocan i ask questions about program running on ubuntu or is it related to their own irc/support ?07:48
* dw1 switches to xterm-256color07:49
ducasseKalimero: what program?07:50
ObrienDaveKalimero, if it's supplied in the official repos, sure. PPAs are not supported here07:51
Kalimeroi am running darkstat as a web-based network monitoring tool on a ubuntu server but it frequently resets the collected data and i want to prevent that07:52
KalimeroObrienDave, good to know thanks07:52
ducasseKalimero: how regularly? could it be a cron job?07:54
Kalimeroducasse, it seems to happen at 4 am every day07:55
ducasseKalimero: sounds like cron. check if there is a job running.07:56
ducasseKalimero: if there is a cron job, that might be because it actually needs it, though07:57
Kalimeroducasse, i already checked but there is no cron named darkstat or something similar07:58
Kalimeroducasse, i dont know where darkstat is getting its data so it might be system related and not caused by darkstat itself08:00
ducasseKalimero: where did you look? both /var/spool/cron/crontabs/ and /etc/cron*?08:00
Kalimeroducasse, i checked only /etc/cron i'll give a try the other one you mentioned08:01
Kalimeroducasse the /var/spool/cron/crontabs is the one you opening with crontab -e?08:03
ducasseKalimero: yes, -u for user08:03
Kalimeroducasse, ok i checked both08:04
ffosis any one reading this?08:04
ducasseKalimero: then i would check the config file. looks like that is /etc/darkstat/init.cfg08:04
Kalimeroducasse, didnt know crontab -e is located at /var/spool ....08:04
ducasseKalimero: yes they are, but i don't think packages are supposed to put jobs there, they should be under /etc08:05
Kalimeroducasse, i also did already nothing there08:05
ducasseKalimero: then i'd guess your best bet would be to ask the darkstat people. i have no idea where it gets data from and how it is stored08:06
ducasseKalimero: or use another program. what are you monitoring?08:07
Kalimeroducasse, just the network traffic and the connected hosts for information purposes08:08
ducasseKalimero: then i would look at ntop or ntop-ng08:08
ducasseKalimero: and use netflow from the hosts i want to grab traffic from, like routers08:09
=== aruns is now known as indistylo
ducasseKalimero: if you want bandwidth monitoring, then vnstat and/or bandwidthd08:10
Kalimeroducasse, i tried ntop-ng already but it was a bit to overloaded and more ressources consuming than darkstat. i found a database file for darkstat that answers at least where it saves its data08:10
ducasseKalimero: old ntop is in the repos and much less resource demanding, it's what i use08:11
Kalimeroducasse, is the port changeable in the config of the old one?08:12
ducasseKalimero: i think it's a command line option08:12
Kalimeroducasse, ok i'll give it a try, thank you08:12

cfhowlettKalimero, set your keyboard to the language you need08:33

arcsky_hey guys i did use unetbooting and write to the usb drive. booted on a server. but after keyboard settings it asked for CD-rom to be mounted. why doesnt it work since its USB ?08:35
Kalimerocfhowlett, i know how to to it on my pc but my notebook has a different layout and i dont want to mess it up and loosen its functionality just for an é . the compose key isnt set yet sadly08:35
cfhowlettKalimero, dw1 had a valid suggestion; enter the utf8 code08:36
EriC^^Kalimero: try pressing ctrl+shift+u as dw1 said, then type 09 and press enter08:36
EriC^^* e9 not 0908:37
Kalimerodw1, it does nothing when i press ctrl+shift+u08:37
dw1guess it's not enabled there08:37
dw1should make an underlined u08:37

EriC^^daschel: no idea09:06
daschelcfhowlett, I'm trying to extinguish all other options before I do that.  but I have noticed that partitioning tools and and the ubuntu installer fail when reading the disk on both ubuntu and windows09:08
daschelbecause I didn't push a handful of commits before I upgraded :/09:08
cfhowlettdaschel, clarify: neither ubuntu nor windows can see your parts?09:08
daschelcfhowlett, gparted displays the entire disc as unallocated.  the ubuntu installer...uhm...I forget exactly how it displayed the disc but it showed no partitions.  and partition magic in windows gives an I/O error when trying to read the drive.09:10
cfhowlettdaschel, yeah, that last should give you a bit of a pucker factor as it typically indicates failing hardware.09:11

cfhowlett!lubuntu | Kriman, 2007?  lubuntu is optimized for older/slower hardware10:22
ubottuKriman, 2007?  lubuntu is optimized for older/slower hardware: lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.10:22
Abeok No Uefi you should be fine then but it's only supported until 2016 or 2017 I think10:22

k1llinocisco: that issue is fixed since 14.04.3 iirc.10:25

vboltonk1l: lxde sorry10:30
chrisss123456ducasse: ok, but there must be something that's a plugin. would surprise me if not!10:30
linociscok1l, so samba configuration will be unusable?10:31

ubottuducasse: The kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds11:48

k1lgrumkard: that sounds like you already have a PPA mess there :)11:50
grumkardk1l I think I have 6 or 7 external repositories added, everything else is from the main one11:50
ducasseyes, i know that, this is for a testing vm. i was just wondering if i could add a repo, set it to low priority, and use apt-get to grab the versions i need. seems like i need to grab them manually.11:50
k1lgrumkard: you can get a list of the packages with dpkg --get-selections11:51
procyonidaePradeep these are the steps if WiFi never works, but it works most of the time, but not if I let my laptop on, while in standby mode for a full night.11:51

TheLinuxManGood Day Everyone! Is anyone able to help me installing my NVIDIA Geforce GT635m Drivers? Google only brings Results that arent working for me.11:58
grumkardTheLinuxMan have you tried with the propietary drivers? http://askubuntu.com/questions/47506/how-do-i-install-additional-drivers11:59
ducassegrumkard: no configs, other than the apt sources and repo keys, plus a list of installed packages11:59

TheLinuxMangrumkard: It says that its using the NVIDIA Binary driver version 346.82. Do i need to specify which programs i want to start with that GPU? Minecraft uses some Ivybridge thing.12:02
grumkardTheLinuxMan if there's more in the list you should get the newest one (also check if it have stable in the end). Is the problem only in minecraft? Maybe the problem is not in your drivers12:03
BluesKajTheLinuxMan:  hybrid graphics like Optimus?12:03
TheLinuxManI dont know, im new to Ubuntu. I wanted to play some Minecraft but the FPS with the Integrated sucks, so i want to use my NVIDIA. grumkard  ill look12:04

TheLinuxManusing the latest, none says stable tho12:05
BluesKajducasse:  we're not sure it's optimus yet12:05
grumkardTheLinuxMan it should be using your graphics card as default. Try with other game, minecraft always used way more CPU than GPU and maybe the problem resides in java instead of something else12:05

ducasserumpy1: no kernel in 14.10 or newer has worked, is that what you're saying?12:25
rumpy1ducasse: yes12:27
ducasserumpy1: try trusty, see if the kernel there works _before_ installing any upgrades. if it does, then gradually upgrade until it fails. if you can determine where the bug was introduced, you have a much better chance of getting it fixed12:28
blackflowGuys, how can I set alt-tab to switch only between windows groups, and when switching from one to another that next alt-tab switches back? Currently it's horrendously broken if you have more than one group of windows active.12:28

tkxxxHi. I need to think of a solution for my class I teach. The group need SSH root access to a linux system so that they can perform some simple linux commands (adding users etc) for their assignment. We don't have the money in the budget to buy 60+ USB sticks to run a Live USB, so I was hoping for a suggestion that would mean the students could SSH to a server. It would need to run on a standard computer in my classroom.12:37
=== stereoit is now known as stereoit_
mike112tkxxx: run a live DVD in virtualbox? (download the .iso, attach to a virtual machine's virtual optical drive)12:40
akiktkxxx: one ssh login doesn't take too much ram12:40
tkxxxmike112: We have tried that, although there is not space in the students drive, nor do we have the space to host the image (honestly, the tech support is a nightmare)12:40
ducassetkxxx: set up a vm on your server, give the students putty and keys to that vm12:41
mike112what, you don't have a 1 GB USB stick for an iso? Of course you don't want 60 isos, just 1 and attach it to 1 or 60 virtual machines as you need12:41
llutztkxxx: if you really teach people "ssh root access" it's not only the tech support which is a nightmare (jm2c)12:41
akiktkxxx: oh are you saying that you don't have any linux server to use for this?12:42
tkxxxducasse: The biggest problem here is that I don't have admin access on the network and the guy who does doesn't have a clue and won't let me touch anything. I was hoping to setup a PC in the classroom as the server and have the students connect using portable SSH client12:43
tkxxxakik: Yes, no server space available at all12:43
tkxxxakik: but we do have a few PC's lying around that I could use.12:43
ducassetkxxx: then set up a pc with ubuntu, fire up a virtual machine, and give the students access to the vm, not the host12:43
tkxxxllutz: No, we are not teaching that, although we do want to give the students sudo access to their 'own' install12:44

ducassetkxxx: yes12:44
tkxxxducasse: Awesome. I will try that, seems like a very good solution.12:45

bxxI would like to share a unique ext4 boot partition for multiple distros  I thought to namespace /boot like this: /boot/distro1, /boot/distro2, ... During distroN run I could mount the boot partition to /mnt/boot and bind mount /mnt/boot/distroN to /boot12:50
bxxAt boot it would use /boot/grub/grub.cfg only to select the desired namespace For example selecting "distro2" in menu would set configfile to /boot/distro2/grub/grub.cfg and reload the menu12:50
bxxIs it possible ? Should /boot/distroN/grub/grub.cfg refer to kernel & initrd as distroN/vmlinuz, as distroN/initrd ? What do you think of that, has it been done before ?12:50
mike112bxx: you basically want a custom grub install that chainloads the distro's default grub installs?12:53
=== maucat is now known as Guest39654
bxxmike112: actually not, each distro would have its /boot/grub dir (mapped to /boot/distroN/grub) but I have only one grub target (grub gpt partition)12:55
EriC^^bxx: the mount bind part sounds a little sketchy, the rest seems ok, ask in ##linux maybe12:56
bxxmike112: so I am not chainloading, instead trying to RELOAD GRUB MENU ...12:56
g105bspent the whole weekend recovering from my first rm -rf disaster12:56
mike112bxx, then have a custom grub + menu in the EFI system part. that configfile's the appropriate grubs12:56
bxxmike112: I am MBR booting on a GPT partition scheme12:57
mike112alternatively, chainloading would also work, if you installed the distros' grubs in the respective partition boot sectors12:57
mike112bxx, then just strip the EFI part out of my answer12:58
bxxmike112: distros don't have a distinct partition, they just share the same ZFS pool (on dmcrypt)12:58
mike112bxx, then chainloading is not an option and you would be fine with configfile'ing the various grub.cfg's12:59
EriC^^bxx: why have a separate /boot?13:00
bxxmike112: so yes the idea is to a have a cutom grub whith its config files in (boot_partition)/grub installed in GRUB GPT partition, AND each distro having (boot_partition)/distroN/grub dit13:00
bxxEriC^^: did not manage to make grub open my cryptsetup encrypted pool13:01
Deerhunter102cant you just burn them onto disc's? dvd's are cheap13:01
jjavaholicjust so i can clarify to install ubuntu along side windows 8.0 machine with an i7 I have to download AMD64.iso? for vivid?13:01
mike112bxx: you can load a grub.cfg from within another grub.cfg, that's called configfile13:01
bxxmike112: yeah, will it open a new menu ?13:02
mike112bxx: yes, it will13:02
bxxmike112: great, so the only issue is to patch grub templates in EVERY distro to refer to correct kernel & initrd , eg in (boot partition)/distroN/13:04
bxxmike112: I hoped there would be a grub mapping mechanism to apply my namespaces automatically13:04
mike112bxx: hopefully, one will be developed in the future with btrfs (the mainstream distros already implement your scheme on btrfs, except for the additional grub)13:05
bxxmike112: eg configfile ()/distro1/grub/grub.cfg would automatically prefix linux & initrd commands with ()/distro1/13:06
EriC^^bxx: when you run configfile ()/grub.cfg it will load the other menu that has everything it needs to boot the distro,13:07
mike112uhm, another issue is that you need to update the root= parameter in the linux command line, to reflect the subvolume13:07
bxxmike112: yes my ultimate goal is to automatically generate grub configs for my ZFS roots, even clones from snapshots13:07
mike112bxx: then you have to edit the /etc/grub.d scripts accordingly. I am not aware of an already implemented solution for that13:08
bxxEriC^^: no I think the paths for linux & initrd do not include the namespacing (distroN)13:08
mike112as I said, you may have more luck with btrfs in this respect - the subvol= parameter is updated autopmatically as far as I know13:09
mike112I am not sure about ZFS though.13:09
bxxmike112: in zfs I use the following boot parameters:13:10
mike112uhm, see the root= parameter, it seems the subvolume is already prefixed therein13:12
EriC^^bxx: the path's should include it, cause the menu was built using the distro and it should pick up it's location i think13:12
kibromGot little problem with my DE13:13
bxxEriC^^: the distro does not know about kernel & initrd path on the REAL boot partition, /boot is bind-mounted from /mnt/boot/distroN13:15
bxxmike112: actually what i was hoping is a grub path prefix mechanism i could feed with my distroName13:16
mike112hum, may I ask WHY you are doing all this? seems a bit overkill to me13:17
mike112what is the real problem you are trying to solve?13:17
pradeepseems linuxmint and ubuntu use the same repository13:17
mike112pradeep: yes, 17.* all use ubuntu 14.04 repository + a couple custom packages13:18
pradeepthen they are both the same13:18

OerHekspaultjuh, thanks for the rant: openjdk should work just fine...13:58

k1lpaultjuh: stop it right now! we were very welcoming to your and your not-ubuntu-issue.13:59
k1lpaultjuh: so talk to a) elasticsearch to get their stuff sorted to support actual software  or b) talk to oracle to provide old and outdated and insecure java versions.13:59
Lewixhello guys14:00

paultjuhk1l: I could have accepted an offtopic, except I got attacks on myself because I use elasticsearch which is not friendly at all, now I was trying to explain where I'm coming from which pissed me off, but that is also offtopic, thanks for that, bye14:03

pbxEmanuelNJ, you're saying the ppp server dies entirely when that one windows client connects? any clues in the server logs?14:49
TJ-EmanuelNJ: That sounds as if the Windows clients are using the PPTP connection as their default route, so unless the PPTP server also does Internet routing/masquerading for them, that is expected.14:49
EmanuelNJpbx, No I'm saying the Windows System loses it's connction to the internet. windows says the connection is limited. I believe the guide I used setups the PPTP server to do internet routing14:50
TJ-EmanuelNJ: change the Windows client settings to NOT use the connection as the default route14:51

TJ-Roland: Does the laptop have Nvidia Optimus hybrid GPUs?15:20
RolandI have a GeForce GTX 860M, so I think so?15:22
rory-Can I set up an ssh config file "dynamically" such that "ssh foo" becomes HostName bastion.foo.blah.com ?15:23
rory-I have a bajillion environments15:24
TJ-Roland: There's probably some issue with the nvidia-prime part that manages switching from integrated GPU to discrete. That can depend on the type of hybrid the laptop model uses: Hardware Multiplexed (MUX) or not (MUXless) - the latter being problematic in many cases15:24
macjackHello everyone15:24
macjackI was wondering does 14.04.3 release yet?15:24
TJ-rory-: Yes. add configurations in $HOME/.ssh/config. See "man ssh_config"15:25
rory-macjack: Yes, it was released on 6th August https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-announce/2015-August/000200.html15:25
macjackrory-: Thanks :)15:25
rory-TJ-: Yes I know where to put ssh configs, but I need it to work for any value of foo15:25
rory-TJ-: Not just ones I specifically configure15:25
rory-If not I can make some little wrapper to use in place of the ssh binary. I just wanted to know if there was a neat way to do it "natively"15:26
TJ-rory-: Use 'default; settings which are then over-ridden if necessary per-host15:26
rory-I'm imagining something like15:26
rory-Host *15:26
rory-    HostName bastion.$host.example.com15:27
TJ-rory-: I think what you want is the Match directive15:27
rory-OK thanks TJ- I'll take a look into that15:27
macjackrory-: I found, however, "README.diskdefines" in each single ISO file which I downloaded will show "Beta" actually15:27
macjackrory-: I verify the checksum is correctly15:28
macjackrory-: is it an error or typo?15:28
rory-macjack: No idea. If the checksum is good then don't worry about it15:30
=== john__ is now known as tables
rory-macjack: Maybe file a bug report against that release15:31
TJ-rory-: "HostName bastion.*.blah.com" is valid but you'd still have to do "ssh bastion.foo.blah.com", there is no parameter expansion as in the shell, although you might be able to leverage shell expansion to achieve it15:31

blackflowGuys, how can I set alt-tab to switch only between windows groups, and when switching from one to another that next alt-tab switches back? Currently it's horrendously broken if you have more than one group of windows active.15:33
rory-TJ-: The driver for my question is this: I have multiple remote environments with a bastion, and it would be very nice for me to just do "ssh preprod" or whatever and have it understand that that means bastion.preprod.example.com15:33
rory-TJ-: I'm thinking a little bash wrapper would be best to be honest15:33
acetakwasreisio, it's a Youtube video downloader15:33
TJ-rory-: I suspect a bash function to wrap it would be the easiest solution15:34

reisioyou can duplicate a partition layout with sfdisk or sgdisk15:52
CarlFKkadiro: you want to copy the files, right ?15:53

k1l_goldiloks: can you rephrase that question?15:56
cfhowlettgoldiloks, but most of us mere mortals find it easier to just install the appropriate drivers for the gpu15:57
goldiloksi mean, could i make this resolution to 1280x800, because on windows it capable to that res..15:57
kadiroyes i clone a disk not in the same order but one by one using gparted and after that i want to copy a mbr from the first to the second disk15:58
goldiloksin linux it just 1280x76815:58
rsvcan i do auto login as soon as i boot the device15:58
jpdsrsv: Yep15:58

rofltechgoldiloks: install the right drivers or just set your resolution.  xrandr -output <display to change> -mode 1920x108015:59
TJ-goldiloks: the X server gets the list of possible resolutions from the display, in a data format known as EDID. If for some reason that isn't available,  or is corrupt, then the GPU driver will chose only known safe resolutions15:59
jpdsrsv: Actually, user accounts in system settings has an option for it15:59
kadiromistralol: i do that but not in the same order the partition from sda1 copyied to sdb516:00
TJ-goldiloks: You may find clues as to whether EDID has been correctly read from the display in "/var/log/Xorg.0.log"16:00
mistralolkadiro: why do you need the mbr copied? its not going to be correct at all in that case16:00

cfhowlettkadiro, why not just copy the DATA, reformat/format the HDD and install then restore the data.16:03
mistralolkadiro: if you just want the data back use a liveusb and mount the cloned partion and copy it off16:04
kadirocfhowlett: I have no space available to do a backup16:04
goldiloksrofltech: is that safe to manually add modes to xorg.conf? How to do that?16:04

cfhowlettkadiro, yeah, this is not going to go the way you think ...16:05
mistralolkadiro: what was on the original drive? and were there a lot of error's when cloneing it?16:05
kadirothank you, i will boot from live usb and install mbr for this problem16:05

UmeaboyHave you tried deleting splash quiet from the Try/Install row?18:19
FaryshtaEriC^^: ok then let me finish purgin alsa, then  will reinstall18:19
UmeaboyAlso try to add noacpi to see if that helps.18:19
jonassmi get what you're saying tj-. i'll try18:19
TJ-xwyfgotitall: Yay! the device shows up! See if you can use it18:19
weliperUmeaboy: huh! it's not installed! I don't have grub right now.18:20
xwyfgotitallTJ-, i can't hear anything through my headphones through the front jacks18:20
EriC^^choice: you can always launch a normal terminal and type sudo -i to get a root prompt18:20
FaryshtaUmeaboy: that advice of removing splash was intended to me?18:21
choiceOerHeks: maybe. im new to ubuntu. use debian and mint normally. my new xps13 came with ubuntu preinstalled. not sure if i will keep it or replace with debian or mint. do i have to somehow pin the terminal to the launcher and then edit it?18:21
TJ-xwyfgotitall: headphones can often be another problem to deal with. Can you test the speaker outputs?18:21

cruceriohi there, my laptop does not recognize the built in keyboard anymore (ubuntu 15.04) what am I to do?18:21
EriC^^choice: and not type the password even?18:21
UmeaboyHighlight Try before install and press Tabulator button.18:21
UmeaboyThen delete splash quiet from the row and press F10.18:22
TJ-xwyfgotitall: also, use the Mixer control to ensure the ALC892 is being used - it is possible the PC is trying to send audio to the HDMI device18:22
weliperUmeaboy: What do you mean for row? They are button!18:22
choiceEriC^^: i expect the password prompt to come up when i start it.18:22
choiceEriC^^: do i have to pin the terminal to the launcher and then edit it?18:22
xwyfgotitallTJ-, I only have a monitor with speakers at the moment so i am playing sound through the GPU. i dont have any speakers to use18:22

ioriaxwyfgotitall, alsamixer is working ?18:23
choiceEriC^^: no visual way to add something to the launcher?18:23
TJ-xwyfgotitall: can you plug your headphones into one or more of the speaker outputs - you should hear something from the front-left/right output which is usually Green, I think18:23
EriC^^choice: no18:23
Umeaboyweliper: You have the same problem using any other Live version?18:23
EriC^^not unless the terminal you install has a .desktop like that preinstalled18:23
choiceEriC^^: you must be kidding me? even debian has a "mainmenu" menu where you can add stuff.18:24
UmeaboyLike using the Live version of Ubuntu 14.10.18:24
=== andre__ is now known as Guest48493
TJ-xwyfgotitall: also, if the monitor is connected by HDMI and you are, by default, hearing sound through those speakers, then plugging headaphones into the other sound device might *not* cause the output device to change18:24

OerHekschoice, i thought you wanted the terminal passwordless in root..18:25
FaryshtaUmeaboy, EriC^^ restarting, back in a minute.18:25
TJ-xwyfgotitall: in other words, you may have to manually change the output device if you want to use headphones, from the HDMI to the Analogue18:25
UmeaboyYou only said 12.04 and 15.04. :)18:25
choiceOerHeks: yes, im hanging at step 1 "Pin the application to the launcher as normal." - what does that mean?18:25
UmeaboyTJ-: I've had the same problem with that for a while.18:25
EriC^^choice: that's to do with the DE not debian/ubuntu18:25
weliperUmeaboy :)18:25
choiceEriC^^: i found it: start the app, then right click the icon and click "lock to launcher"18:26
Umeaboyweliper: Try the mini.iso. ;)18:26
xwyfgotitallTJ-, which card should i use?, digital output (S/PDIF) or Line out18:26
OerHekschoise, in this case, open terminal, then right klick, add to launcher18:26
UmeaboyThat might help.18:26
choiceEriC^^: yes, unity. never used it before. well, used it and decided i hate it. but since its preinstalled now i will give it another shot.18:26
UmeaboyJust try it and see.18:26
EriC^^choice: ah, i was referring to your question regarding doing it via a visual way (adding a root terminal)18:26
UmeaboyIt's a text-based installation, but still works.18:26
OerHeksbut that would be the same as the launcher in usr/share/applications/18:26
weliperUmeaboy: It needs internet. I need to install it offline :(18:26
TJ-xwyfgotitall: it should be Stereo analog - line-out is non-amplified for driving an external amplifier18:27
xwyfgotitallTJ-, it was only a minor set back. my volume was at 0% ;)18:27
TJ-xwyfgotitall: LOL18:27
Umeaboyweliper: Right.18:27
OerHekschbest way now is to make your own launcher, and name it root-terminal or something18:27
TJ-xwyfgotitall: OK... so where are you at now? Is it working?18:27
Umeaboyweliper: Can't you enable a WiFi hotspot with your cellphone then?18:27
UmeaboyI use that now and then.18:28
weliperI semi-loads! untill the window we choose via Try/Install button!18:28
BluesKajxwyfgotitall: on most modern soundcards the green output connector is the "front" volume ctl in alsamixer, and both digital and analog outs are usually active if you have the hdmi connected as well18:28
weliper.It semi-loads*18:28

Bashing-omJesusIsAwesome: If your system is updated. You have the latest that is available from the software repsitory . terminal command ' lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga ' to see the card; and ' sudo lshw -C display ' to see what driver is loaded .18:52
KorejoraI'd like to try Ubuntu, but I'm unsure of how to partition it. Any advice?18:54
rory-Korejora: Will you be dual-booting with Windows?18:54
KorejoraYes. Last time I tried this, though, grub destroyed Windows' MBR and I had to reinstall both OS, so this time I have a separate 256GB SSD for Ubuntu.18:55
rory-Korejora: During the Ubuntu installation, you can use a graphical interface to choose how much disk space is allocated to Windows, and how much to Ubuntu. The installer will then do the partitioning for you. You don't have to manually partition unless you want to.18:55
MonsieurBonI'm trying to log all dropped outgoing packets from iptables. These are my iptables-rules: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12186121/  and this is /etc/rsyslog.d/00-my_iptables.conf: :msg,contains,"[netfilter] " -/var/log/iptables.log18:55

MonsieurBonWhy am I not seeing anything in /var/log/iptables.log? The file isn't even being created.18:56
MonsieurBonBtw, this is on a virtual server.18:57

OerHeksKorejora, yes, the installer calculates your rax x 2 + some kb for caches.19:02
Bashing-omKorejora: Yeah, if you choose "erase diak and install ubuntu" the installer will take care of all details. All you need to do is tell the installer where you are in the world, identify the keyboard and set a username and password. The installer does all the rest .19:02
OerHeksKorejora, see what it does in automatic mode19:02
KorejoraOK. Thanks, guys!19:03
akikKorejora: i wouldn't trust anything automatic in your case if you had a bad experience last time19:05
Bashing-omKorejora: 'sudo parted -l' to make sure you know what the SSD is identified by the system as . Would not want to install to the wrong hard drive . - an ounce of prevention !19:05

snapfractalpopanyone have experience with ufw?19:05
rorysnapfractalpop: ask your next question (your real question) and find out :)19:05
MonkeyDustsnapfractalpop  i'm sure it's really about iptables19:06
snapfractalpopI'm looking to use ufw as a kill-switch for pia vpn. is this a good idea?19:06
r1k1_snapfractalpop what you need to do with ufw?19:06
rorysnapfractalpop: sure that would work fine19:07
Korejora@akik: That's what I was concerned about. Mostly I just don't want to lose the ability to boot into Windows if Ubuntu screws up or needs to be removed.19:07
rorysnapfractalpop: assuming you mean to block access to the port(s) the VPN uses, in order to cause it to stop working?19:07
snapfractalpoprory: I mean, sometimes the internet in various places cuts out, and my connection to the vpn is killed along with it19:08
snapfractalpopwhen my connection comes back, it's without vpn19:08
rorysnapfractalpop: So you want to be sure that you can't make connections without the VPN?19:08
rorysnapfractalpop: What software are you using to connect to the VPN? Built into Ubuntu network manager?19:09
akikKorejora: you can install the boot loader to the beginning of your linux partition and then use dd to copy it to a file, then add it to windows boot loader with bcdedit. it's not easy but it's possible19:09
rorysnapfractalpop: you could configure the firewall to only allow outbound connections to the IP address(es) of the VPN service19:10
Korejora@Bashing-om: Will this be available in the installer, or will I have to run Ubuntu off the USB and run a terminal before installing?19:10
snapfractalpoprory: so, is vpn an interface, that I would "allow" with ufw?19:11
roryIn my mind I'm picturing all outbound connections blocked by default, and then allowing outbound traffic to your VPN endpoint(s)19:11
akikKorejora: the installer allows you to manually create your partition scheme, showing your disks19:12
EriC^^Korejora: you could dd the mbr and copy it back if you want to restore the windows bootloader, if you don't have a windows cd19:12
roryBut if you can do it by interface, that would work too19:12
EriC^^Korejora: are you using uefi though? or mbr/legacy?19:12
roryThere is an option to automatically connect to VPN though I think. Might be worth clicking through the settings dialogue of the VPN connection to see if there's such an option19:12
snapfractalpoprory: that's what I was thinking.. I guess I just have to learn how to use ufw19:12
snapfractalpoprory: I'll check that too19:13
Korejora@EriC^^: I have a Windows CD. The problem is that all attempts to repair it via the Windows CD failed using bootrec, etc. failed.19:13
EriC^^Korejora: oh, bootrec /fixmbr /fixboot etc ?19:13
Korejora@EriC^^: Yes, those.19:14
EriC^^windows 7?19:14
roryKorejora: I've seen situations like this before when you have multiple hard drives. The Windows bootloader is installed to one drive, and then Grub installs to another and things get funky19:14
Bashing-omKorejora: Boot the liveUSB -> try ubuntu mode -> activate a terminal . and run 'sudo parted -l ' .. many times the USB is refognized as 'sda' where as 'you' might expect that the DDS is to be recognized as 'sda' . This confuses many peiple . from the desktop - when you are ready to install you can click on the install icon .19:15
snapfractalpoprory: you are right!!19:15
roryKorejora: There's an option in the same screen in the installer that partitions, that lets you choose which drive to install GRUB19:15
KorejoraEriC^^: Yes, although because the MBR seemed unrecoverable I just wiped the disk and installed Windows 10 instead.19:15
snapfractalpopthere *is* a way to make the connection automatically use vpn19:15
EriC^^Korejora: does win10 boot?19:15
rorysnapfractalpop: Always better to come in and say what your problem is, rather than some detail of a solution you've come up with that may not be optimal :)19:15

EriC^^Korejora: ok, well boot the live usb and see if you're using uefi or not, if you're using legacy then install ubuntu to the other hdd and the bootloader there too, and ubuntu's bootloader will boot windows19:20
ioriaKorejora,  run  MSINFO32 in win10 and check BIOS MODE19:20
EriC^^if you're using uefi, the bootloader isn't installed in the mbr, it's in a separate partition on the disk, so if you want ubuntu to be a standalone install you can have it create it's own efi partition on the other hdd to boot it19:20

Korejora@ioria: OK, thanks.19:25
ioriaKorejora,  but efi motherboard are all different ...19:25

NikeshKion: On the receiving machine? No, I wasn't told that yet. The sending machine is showing some output from rsync and I can see that there are new files on the receiving end, so it looks like it's going well20:10
KionNikesh: on the server machine, that command will print a list of all the listening programs, just see if you can find sshd there20:11
NikeshKion: OK, yeah, I see sshd there. Thanks :)20:12
KionNikesh: sorry a list of all the programs listening and in which port they are, it is also good to check that once in a while to make sure there are no programs waiting for connections that you do not want20:12
KionNikesh: That means that sshd is listening and waiting for connections, now check your firewall rules, and lastly your configuration for authentificating on the server20:13
NikeshOK so next issue to investigate is.. what is causing my CPU so much activity? In the 'System Monitor' (GNOME) I see a constant activity of 15-25% on all four cores, even when all I have open is a terminal and the 'System Monitor' itself20:15
NikeshBut when I click the Processes tab and sort by CPU, the top listed process is the 'System Monitor' with only 6% usage20:15
trijntjeNikesh: close system monitor ;)20:15
Nikeshtrijntje: Is there another way to check CPU usage that doesn't skew the results so heavily, then?20:16
trijntjeTop in the terminal20:16
NikeshThough in contrast with other machines 'System Monitor' generally shows just 0-3% usage across the cores20:17
OerHekshtop is my favorite20:17
Delta706apart from Squid, is there an easy-to-configure web proxy that supports modifying the data being passed through?20:17
OerHeksis that 3% bad ?20:17
KionNikesh: for CPU usage type w on your terminal20:18
KionNikesh: that is a very light weight way of watching your CPU usage20:18
NikeshOerHeks: No, but seeing 15-25% usage when all I have open is a terminal and the GNOME System Monitor concerned me, i.e. what was causing such relatively heavy usage?20:19
trijntjeCould be the CPU taking over for the video card, drawing stuff. Do you have the latest graphics drivers?20:20
Nikeshtrijntje: I'm not sure!20:20
Nikeshtrijntje: This is a fresh 14.04 install20:20
zerowaitstateNikesh: try htop instead.20:21
zerowaitstateNikesh: and run htop under sudo, so you see everything you need to20:22
OerHeks!info htop20:22
ubottuhtop (source: htop): interactive processes viewer. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.0.3-1 (vivid), package size 62 kB, installed size 194 kB20:22
Nikeshtrijntje: It seems like something is up with my touchpad drivers, too, because occasionally the mouse will move all around the screen on its own clicking things20:22
Nikeshzerowaitstate OerHeks Ah thanks!20:22
honkoHello! How do I use CAPS LOCK as ESC in Ubuntu?20:23
NikeshSo how do I begin looking into my touchpad and graphics drivers?20:24
OerHekshonko, i would switch them caps<>esc, like here, or see 2nd answer with dconf http://askubuntu.com/questions/363346/how-to-permanently-switch-caps-lock-and-esc20:24
zerowaitstateDelta706: take a look at varnish20:24
zerowaitstateDelta706: although varnish is actually a reverse proxy20:25
honkoOerHeks: i prefer to have ESC on both keys20:26
OerHekshonko, copy the esc code with dconf i guess20:27
honkok... unbelievable, how much harder it is to configure unity compared to gnome.20:27
honkoso what does it mean to "copy esc code with dconf"?20:28
k1l_honko: that task is not different on unity than on gnome-shell since both share the same base20:28
Delta706varnish seems to be a proxy but I cannot find anything on the wikipedia page to say it can modify data20:29
honkok1l_: in gnome (as it comes with mint) there is a checkbox in the system menu where you can simply say "use caps lock as an additional escape key"20:30
Nikesh/usr/bin/X and firefox up to 50% CPU usage! Could this indicate needing to update graphics card drivers?20:30
honkok1l_: also i think in debian it is that way.20:30
k1l_honko: what comes with mint is either mate or cinnamon. and if you name the program that they use, you can use the same on ubuntu20:30
honkohonko: because i have a debian laptop and a mint desktop and i set it like that on both without editing config files.20:31
honkok1l_: dont know what program. its just under the main menu "keyboard settings".20:31
honkoso how do i do it with dconf?20:31
honkois it a good idea to install these dconf-tools?20:32
OerHeksAs you request a specific key setting, it is usable.20:33
honkomaybe gnome-tweak-tool is better?20:34
honkoim confused as to what gnome has to do with unity20:35
k1l_honko: unity is a shell for gnome3. like gnome-shell is a shell for gnome3-20:35
TJ-honko: "apt-cache depends unity" ===> "Depends: libgnome-desktop-3-7"20:35
k1l_honko: cinnamon (the mint thingy) is a shell for gnome3 too.20:36
k1l_honko: http://askubuntu.com/questions/363346/how-to-permanently-switch-caps-lock-and-esc20:37
honkoso i think the gnome-tweak-tool is the way to go?20:37
honkohonko: i dont want to switch them20:37
honkok1l_: ^20:38
honkoi just want to use caps lock as an additional escape key.20:38
k1l_honko: did you read the answer before saying it doesnt help you?20:38
EriC^^honko: use xmodmap -e "keycode <caps lock code>=Escape"20:39
honkoEriC^^: would that work system wide or just in the terminal?20:39
honkoEriC^^: how would i make that work on boot?20:39
honkoEriC^^: i think thats not what i need.20:39
EriC^^what do you need?20:40
honkoEriC^^: where would you put that line?20:40
EriC^^in startup apps20:40
honkowhats that?20:41
EriC^^open the dash > startup20:41
OerHeksit is all there honko. http://askubuntu.com/a/365628 from the same page .. keycode and all ..20:41
OerHeksit is a rich helppage20:41
honkoEriC^^: and paste it just as you typed it?20:42
EriC^^open a terminal, type xev, then press caps lock and get it's keycode20:42
honkocan i try it in the terminal first to see if it works?20:42
honkoEriC^^: that gives me: ^[20:43
EriC^^honko: what does?20:44
ash_workoops! I did ^- accidentally and shrank the terminal20:45
ash_workhow do you revert?20:45
honkoEriC^^: hmm.. or maybe it gives me keycode 9?20:45
k1l_ash_work: press ctrl+c ?20:45
ash_workk1l_: nope20:45
ash_workthe terminal is literally smaller20:45
ash_worklike the whole thing20:46
ash_workas if someone took the corner and dragged it smaller and all the aspect ratio was maintained20:46
honkoi think i will install the gome-tweak-tool20:46
OerHeksash_work,  alt + mousewheel20:46
EriC^^honko: ok20:46
ash_workDerHeks that didn't work20:47
ash_workDerHeks, I can't auto complete your name20:47
ash_work:: shrug ::20:47
honkognome-tweak-tool looks completely broken20:47
honkomaybe nobody ever started it under unity?20:47
k1l_ash_work: its a O not a D :)20:48
EriC^^honko: the keycode is 66 here20:48
EriC^^honko: try xmodmap -e "keycode 66=Escape"20:48
ash_workk1l_: still doesn't work 0erHeks20:48
honkoEriC^^: well, gnome-tweak-tool seems to have done the job.20:48
k1l_honko: iirc it doesnt work properly on unity. but you could already be done with all that if you would have looked 30sec. on the page i linked.20:49
ash_workit's an O - oscar20:49
ash_workI thought you were saying zero20:49
k1l_ash_work: you are still mixing O and 0 (one is a letter, one is number)20:49
ash_workfigured it ouy20:49
ash_work(as opposed to shrinking which was just ctrl+minus20:49
honkois it possible to resize / while its mounted?20:50
ash_workthanks though20:50
honkogparted seems to not let me.20:50
k1l_honko: no.20:50
honkok1l_: so i need to boot from an usb stick and then resize it?20:51
k1l_honko: yes20:51
NikeshHow can I 1) find the brand/model of my touchpad and 2) investigate if it needs new drivers? I'm trying to resolve an issue where on occasion the mouse cursor moves around the screen clicking things on its own until I disable the touchpad with FN+F720:56
OerHeksNikesh, lspci or lsusb or lscpu or lshw are hardware identify tools21:01
OerHeksi think the 1st one,lspci21:02
OerHekswith the 8 digit hexcode 1234:abcd you can search for more details21:03
NikeshOerHeks: Hm.. I don't see anything that mentions a touchpad in that output21:06
diooTrying to debug lxterminal (cursor is twice as big as usual only in certain applications) and I can't get gdb to behave.21:06

choiceWhen you guys download a program, where do you put it? Do you create a directory like /home/yourusername/software/ or something?21:20
k1l_choice: yes, or put it into /opt21:20
choicek1l_: interesting. never heard about /opt21:21
choiceanother idea would be to just have /home/myuser/desktop/mystuff/21:21
choiceand have everything there.21:21
k1l_choice: depends on the programs and if its system wide or not21:21
choicek1l_: in this case, its firefox21:22
k1l_well firefox is in the repos. i would not mind installing a extra one21:22
choiceisnt the one from mozilla.org newer?21:22
k1l_choice: no21:22
choiceyou would do apt-get install firefox?21:22
choiceor use that appstore thing from ubuntu?21:22
k1l_the one on the official repos get the same updates21:23
OerHeksfirefix is already there21:23
OerHeksor fox :-D21:23
k1l_choice: your choice if cli or gui.21:23
choicethat appstore thingy is a gui for apt-get?21:23
k1l_choice: it should be the first choice to see if the program is in the official ubuntu repos.21:23
k1l_choice: yes21:24
OerHeksfirst thing i do is update & install synaptic21:24
choiceok, installing via that ubunt software center.21:26
choicemeanwhile im downloading the latest mint with mate. is it save to just install it alongside ubuntu?21:26
OerHeksThat would be a mint-support question21:27
k1l_what do you mean with "safe"?21:27
choicek1l_: good question. i wonder if ubuntu will still work when i install mint in a second partition.21:27
k1l_should do.21:27
OerHeksBackup your data :-)21:27
choicealso i want to install mint with full disk (or full partition) encryption. not sure how that will impact ubuntu.21:27
choiceOerHeks: new laptop, no data :)21:28
mcphailchoice: it will work, but a tiny kitten will cry21:28
choicein my experience, encrypting the root partition while having multiple OSes on the machine creates headaches sometimes.21:29
choicebut i did not do it the last year or two. so maybe things got better meanwhile.21:29
OerHekswith your new laptop?21:29
choiceOerHeks: yes21:29
choiceOerHeks: not sure what your question was refering to though :)21:29
choicewhen i shrink the ubuntu / partition, how much space should i give it? is 10gig enough?21:30
choicethis machine has a whooping 256gig ssd. amazing :)21:30
k1l_10gb is quite short for a full desktop. it can work but depends on how much stuff you install on / and if you have a seperate /home21:31
choicek1l_: i never use /home/. i have all my stuff in its own partition.21:31
choiceguess i will give / 30gb. why not. i have it :)21:32
k1l_choice: you can have /home as a seperate partition21:32
choicek1l_: yeah, but i dont like programs to fiddle in "my" partition.21:32
choicek1l_: and many applications do stuff in /home/21:32
choicek1l_: so i just stay away from /home/ completely.21:32
k1l_that sounds really strange21:33
choicek1l_: i dont want stuff to appear in "my" directory without me putting it there.21:33
k1l_its a linux standard that program put the user configs into the /home folder.21:33
choicek1l_: yes. but when i think about "my stuff" i mean my letters, my photos etc.21:33
choicek1l_: i only want *my* files in *my* directory. not config files some application puts there.21:34
bekkschoice: You have to live with the fact that programs will store its user-config in the user home, too.21:34
choicebekks: they can store as much shit as they want. i just dont want to have anything to do with it.21:35
TJ-choice: programs will write  per-user configuration and documents to $HOME/ by default21:35
choicefind /home/myuser/ | wc   ------>   5908 files :)21:35
bekkschoice: you dont have anything to do with it.21:35
choice5908 files i have absolutely nothing to do with it.21:35
choicei dont want them among *my* data.21:36
TJ-choice: I simply have a directory $HOME/Documents and keep all my own creating documents in it21:36
choiceso i use a partition for my stuff and stay away from /home/.21:36
choiceTJ-: yes, that might be a solution too.21:36
TJ-choice: " mount /dev/mapper/VG-MyDocs /home/tj/Documents"21:37
choiceTJ-: sure. thats possible.21:37
miguelnegraoCan someone tell me what permissions should I set to a user folder in /home ?21:37
choiceTJ-: i never really saw the benefit of volume groups by the way.21:37
MonkeyDustchoice  the hidden .config folder is placed automatically in /home and some programs go look there21:37
miguelnegraoIm trying to restore from backup but only have backup of contents of /home/miguel so neet to create /home/miguel myself.21:37
k1l_miguelnegrao: excpet for .ssh everything could be 75521:40
Bashing-ommiguelnegrao: sysop@1404mini:~$ ls -al /home >> drwxr-xr-x 29 sysop sysop  4096 Aug 24 14:48 sysop .21:40
miguelnegraoBashing-om: so sysop owns sysop ?21:40
miguelnegraothe directory21:41
TJ-choice: LVM allows easy migration, snapshots, extend/reduce, temporary file-systems, RAID, and more21:41
TJ-one of LVMs biggest benefits is there is no need to pre-allocate space that may be wasted, file-systems can be extended on-demand21:42
Bashing-ommiguelnegrao: 'sysop' is my username on the system. so yes 'sysop' owns the directory .21:44
choiceMonkeyDust: another reason to stay away from it.21:46
Guest76664i need antivirus for ubuntu21:47
MonkeyDust!av | Guest7666421:47
ubottuGuest76664: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux, except where files are then passed to Windows computers (perhaps using Samba). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus21:47
choiceTJ-: i only get the last benefit you mentioned. but i can also rather quickly resize with gparted.21:47
k1l_choice: honestly, you are making drama where its no need to.21:47
k1l_Guest76664: to scan a windows partition?21:47

wlu5tarHi. When will the next LTS release of Ubuntu come out?21:48
MonkeyDustwlu5tar  april 201621:48
miguelnegraoBashing-om: thanks, got it.21:48
Bashing-ommiguelnegrao: Great ! :)21:48
k1l_choice: the "omg /home !!!11111" thingy. thousands of user use /home like its meant to be (or do we have millions of linux users? :) ) i dont get why you dont want to.21:49
wlu5tarMokeyDust: Okay.21:49
Guest76664clamav is good21:49
MonkeyDustchoice  have to admit, i havent followed... what's wrong with /home ?21:50
TJ-choice: repartitioning is nowhere near as flexible as LVM. You can't join 2 disjoint partitions into one volume, but with LVM you can add any block devices as physical volumes to a Volume Group, no matter where they are21:50
wlu5tarAre there any major differences in Ubuntu 14.04.03 as compared to Ubuntu 14.04.02?21:50
choicek1l_: i just dont use /home/. no drama.21:51
choiceMonkeyDust: nothing. i dont use it.21:51
MonkeyDustwlu5tar  no, exciting new wallpapers, maybe21:51
k1l_wlu5tar: think of it as a servicepack like windows calls it.21:51
k1l_wlu5tar: and it ships a new kernel and xorg (the ubuntu 15.04 backports one) on a new install.21:51
TJ-wlu5tar: the release notes will show anything dramatic. Mainly the point release is publishing an updated installer  image21:51
MonkeyDustchoice  how can you 'not use' /home ?21:51
choiceMonkeyDust: i just never put any files into it.21:52
MonkeyDustchoice  fair enoughn but /home is not for personal files only21:52
dandanhttp://imgur.com/lEr3ExP I'm having this after few second at splash screen there is any way i can fix it ?21:52
choiceMonkeyDust: true. there are over 5000 files in there right now. 5000 files i dont want to think about :)21:52
wlu5tarI had several problems with Ubuntu 14.04.02 so I was wondering whether the latest relase might've fixed those.21:53
=== alin is now known as Guest93838
TJ-dandan: that looks like the startup 'Plymouth' splash-screen. Pressing Esc should usually show a terminal with progress messages21:53
k1l_wlu5tar: depending on the issues, but if its hardware issues the new kernel might help21:53
OerHekschoice, good choice, then don use a desktop environment.21:53
OerHeksdon't *21:54
MonkeyDustchoice  you mean the files that make your computer run21:54
k1l_OerHeks: even cli programs like irssi put the stuff into ~ :)21:54
choiceOerHeks: seem like the DE works without me thinking about those 5k files in /home/.21:54
wlu5tarWhat's the Kernel's version in the latest release?21:54
k1l_wlu5tar: 3.19 in 15.04 and 14.04.321:54
TJ-OerHeks: Why not? The point is very valid. Backing up/version control of a separate hierarchy is much easier if you don't have to cope with hundreds/thousands of $HOME/.XXXX files/directories21:55
choiceis making a bootable usb stick from an iso file just "dd if=the.iso of=/dev/sdb"?21:55
choiceand is dd better then cat?21:55
TJ-dot-files have gone crazy; they should all be put in one sub-dir of $HOME, e.g. $HOME/.config/21:55
k1l_choice: works for ubuntu images since they are hybrid images21:55
Scott606someone in here helped me out a couple hours ago with my video card .. and sent me a link to download windows 7 to use in virtual box .. well its done installing and i made the bootable usb and it boots up but says there are drivers missing and wont let me install..21:55
TJ-choice: if you use blocksize with dd it'll be faster. E.g. "bs=100M"21:56
wlu5tarBy the way, when using Ubuntu, are you able to play 1080p videos in Firefox?21:56

choiceTJ-: it's 1.6 gig21:57
choicelinux mint21:57
EriC^^choice: yeah, sudo is required obviously21:57

cristi1313ok.. so i fresh installed xubuntu 15.4(tried to contact xubuntu irc but no one is there) and after some ppa adding and some apt-get update apt-get upgrade i have no sound and when i  enter pulseaudio in terminal i get E: [pulseaudio] pid.c: Daemon already running.22:31
cristi1313E: [pulseaudio] main.c: pa_pid_file_create() failed. but the strange thing  is that when i try to play an youtube video or downloaded movie it gets delayed like 10 seconds and then it starts playing with no sound. can anyone help me please, i am new to linux thanks22:31
OerHeks'adding some ppa' .. what ppa exactly?22:31
k1l_cristi1313: please show a "ls -al /etc/apt/sources.list.d" in a pastebin22:32
cristi1313wait a minute to check22:32
cristi1313i have ppa from smplayer , wine , mozilla, vlc, gnome3team and numix, i will k1l_ in a second22:33
k1l_cristi1313: ubuntu-audio-dev-ubuntu-pulse-testing-vivid.list22:35
k1l_that sounds like its made for breaking sound22:35
k1l_!ppa-purge | cristi131322:35
ubottucristi1313: To 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.html22:35
cristi1313i installed it after i had sound break... I thought that it will help22:36
k1l_ubuntu-audio-dev-ubuntu-pulse-testing-vivid.list  got a lot of pulse and other stuff in it too.22:37
k1l_cristi1313: so since you had proper sound and it broke after you added the 3rd party ppas, i would consider using ppa-purge and see what ppa breaks it22:38

OerHekscristi1313, there is a guide for audio issues, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshootingProcedure and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Audio23:08
xanguadoesn't really matter what dm you use michel23:08

michelEriC^^, thanks that showed what i need to know23:16
RevertToTypealso setting grub command line to tty12 doesn't hide all the linux messages on boot like it's supposed to23:17
TJ-RevertToType: because we stop at tty7 :)23:17

bennypr0faneHello, it seems I can't boot into my Bios anymore - whenever I reboot, grub comes right up, there is no bootsplash from the pc manufacturer with startup options like boot menu etc.23:34
neopsycheJust wondering anyone know how to install OPENGL 3.2 for ubuntu 14.0423:34
neopsycheif I do dist-upgrade it will also push it to 14.10?23:34
bennypr0faneI've never seen this behavior before, it's like Bios has disappeared. How can I get it back?23:35
squintyneopsyche,  no23:36
Nikesh_My power went out and subsequently my router turned off in the middle of an 18GB rsync transfer :( Is there someway to continue where it left off?23:36
neopsycheaok thanks squinty23:36
RevertToType@ squinty ; so i have things kinda half working but i can't seem to connect to anything, i can scan via iw, ifup/down work fine, put the appropriate mess in my wpa...conf file but no dice it seems23:36
RevertToTypei've looked through like 20 tutorials online23:36
RevertToTypeif i throw ifup wlan0 i just get a neverending dhcpdiscover23:37
aeden__dneopsyche, are you already using openGl? try  glxinfo | grep version23:37
squintyRevertToType,  sorry never played with that particular angle before.  hopefully someone else will be able to chime in23:37
neopsycheprogram throws 'need 3.2' I have 3.0 when checking grep23:38
RevertToTypewhoever makes a cli closer to automatic network management app is gonna be a solid champion (and someone who streamlines adding new resolutions/modes/lines in xorg)23:38
tgm4883RevertToType: automatic network management app?23:42
RevertToTypesomething like that would be nice23:43
RevertToTypei'm like on my 20th tutorial on how to connect to a network via command line and not a single one has worked23:44

lasindiHi all, I'm trying to connect my ubuntu desktop to my university's network, which appears to be IPv6 only. It appears to work under Windows 7 fine, but Ubuntu takes a long time to configure, and then says I'm "connected" but I can't ping google.com. Any ideas?23:53

ubottuSaulo: Please do not use noisy away messages and nicks in Ubuntu channels. It is annoying and unnecessary. Use the command "/away <reason>" to set your client away silently. See also «/msg ubottu Guidelines»23:58
