TJ-linuxnewbie22: If I recall correctly, on the FreeDos menu, you have to chose the drop to command line, or don't load drivers option - can't remember what it is, but don't chose the CD option00:00
linuxnewbie22pettypierx: My bios driver is a .exe file if that answers your question.00:00
TJ-pettypierx:  it's a real-mode DOS environment that is required to use the Dell Flash tools to do BIOS upgrades. Dell don't provide a flash tool for many of their systems - mostly only for servers00:00
LambdaComplexlinuxnewbie22: It doesn't answer his question.00:01
eclectichedgehogacmeraptor, if its for remote desktop, have you looked at x2go?00:01
LambdaComplex.exe can be either a DOS executable or a NTFS executable.00:01
TJ-linuxnewbie22: you create the FreeDos bootable image on the USB (use 'dd', 'cat', 'cp' for that), then mount the USb file-system and copy to it the flash updater and BIOS image if it is separate, unmount, reboot, boot from USB00:02
pettypierxlinuxnewbie22: you need to make a bootable dos usb with that file on. Then navigate to the file. It's similar to terminal on linux00:02
linuxnewbie22pettypierx: It's a dos exe.00:02
acmeraptoreclectichedgehog: i have not. x11vnc works just fine for me, when i leave myself logged on.  does x2go function like tightvnc?00:03
eclectichedgehogacmeraptor, pretty much i think, i have heard good stuff about it.00:03
linuxnewbie22pettypierx: I got freedos command line to work, but I didn't know how to navigate to the file and run it, and I read the wiki on it.00:04
pettypierxlinuxnewbie22: if RUFUS works in wine00:04
pettypierxlinuxnewbie22: www.howtogeek.com/136987/how-to-create-a-bootable-dos-usb-drive00:04
acmeraptoreclectichedgehog: i'll read up on it, thanks!  tightvnc was the only thing mentioned so far on creating a generic xsession, not just sharing one00:05
eclectichedgehogacmeraptor, np00:05
linuxnewbie22pettypierx: I used unetbootin, which works on linux. I don't think that rufus works on linux.00:05
ainzrufus only work with windows00:06
LambdaComplexdd and possibly installing grub4dos manually would probably work00:06
linuxnewbie22TJ-: I got freedos to work and the command line came up, but I didn't know what commands to use even though I read the wiki on it.00:06
linuxnewbie22TJ-: But i'm going to try wine. I just installed it.00:06
plytrolinuxnewbie22: can't you get a dos boot image from "somewhere" and write that to a disc00:07
pettypierxlinuxnewbie22: www.chtaube.eu/computers/freedos/bootable-usb00:07
TJ-linuxnewbie22: if you've put the flash executable on there, do "dir" to list files to be sure, then run the flash program by name00:07
TJ-linuxnewbie22: did you start from the fdboot.img ?00:08
linuxnewbie22TJ-: No, but should I download fdboot.img and place it on the flashdrive?00:08
=== cynical is now known as cynicist
pettypierxlinuxnewbie22: near the bottom it says he uses it to do bios updates.00:09
TJ-linuxnewbie22: no, follow the guide pettypierx pointed you to... " FreeDOS-1.1-memstick-2-256M.img.bz2" looks like the one to choose00:09
=== marcos is now known as Guest91648
=== Saku is now known as Saku9
linuxnewbie22TJ-: Sure, I used that guide but unfortunately it didn't work out for me.00:10
TJ-linuxnewbie22: we'll follow you through with it to make sure it works00:10
linuxnewbie22Okay thanks guys!00:11
TJ-linuxnewbie22: is it BIOS 2.5.3 you're installing?00:11
linuxnewbie22TJ-: I downloaded the image file, but I downloaded the 2048mb one.00:12
TJ-linuxnewbie22: OK, but there was no need. You only need a very small amount of space for the flash tool00:13
linuxnewbie22TJ-: That's correct, my BIOS 2.5.3 is from 2007, but the dell website says there is a version from 2011.00:13
linuxnewbie22TJ-: Okay, I downloaded the 256mb one.00:14
TJ-linuxnewbie22: before you waste the effort. If there were any difference in the 2 BIOS image, Dell would increment the BIOS version. The "Last Updated" date is for the documentation on the web page00:14
TJ-linuxnewbie22: can you show us what this reports "dmesg | grep DMI"00:15
linuxnewbie22dmesg|grep DMI00:15
TJ-linuxnewbie22: copy that command to a terminal and run it00:16
linuxnewbie22TJ-: [    0.000000] DMI: Dell Inc.                 Dell DXP061                  /0WG855, BIOS 2.5.3  11/22/200700:16
=== Swish[\] is now known as Swish
TJ-linuxnewbie22: I'd make a large bet the installed BIOS is identical to the 2.5.3 on the web-site.00:17
linuxnewbie22TJ-: Yes, it must be the latest update and I simply thought there was a 2011 version for it.00:18
TJ-linuxnewbie22: I've been caught out by those "Last Updated" dates myself... gets yours hopes up until you figure it out :)00:18
TJ-linuxnewbie22: were you hoping to fix a particular problem, or just trying to stay up-to-date00:19
linuxnewbie22TJ-: Have you ever seen a machine go into power save mode in the middle of booting up?00:19
TJ-linuxnewbie22: what do you mean by power-save mode?00:20
linuxnewbie22TJ-: Well, you could also call it hibernating I think.00:20
TJ-linuxnewbie22: how far into the boot sequence does it get... is Linux kernel loaded at that point?00:21
linuxnewbie22TJ-: I can check, to look at what the code says on the screen but a few lines of code and then it hibernates.00:22
=== Corey84 is now known as linux-modder
hellohellohello_I need help00:22
hellohellohello_I can't install anything or update anything00:22
linuxnewbie22TJ-: But when I press the power button, it finishes what it's doing, however it's a blank screen and then the login manager for lubuntu appears.00:23
TJ-linuxnewbie22: if it genuinely goes into hibernation that would be a software command00:23
TJ-linuxnewbie22: if it isn't an uncontrolled crash/power-off, then "/var/log/kern.log" will contain information on what happened00:24
linuxnewbie22TJ-: Thanks, I'll go see what it says.00:24
hellohellohello_how can I update my list of repos?00:25
TJ-linuxnewbie22: if you use these commands you can share it" "sudo apt-get install pastebinit"   and then "sudo pastebinit /var/log/kern.log"00:25
linuxnewbie22TJ-: Okay, I'll share it.00:26
linuxnewbie22TJ-: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12196073/00:28
linuxnewbie22TJ-: A couple lines down it mentions the BIOS00:28
Bashing-omhellohellohello_: Share with us the outputs of terminal commands ' sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get upgrade ' in the pastebin.00:30
TJ-linuxnewbie22: OK, I see from that kern.log that on average there's an uncommanded crash after approx 32 seconds. There is no commanded hibernate/suspend at all.00:32
hellohellohello_Bashing-om: how do I pastebin that00:33
TJ-linuxnewbie22: Experience tells me there's a hardware problem. Further, I'd strongly suspect a power starvation issue. I'd go so far as to be 80% certain the cause is Electrolytic capacitors either in the ATX power supply, or on the Mortherboard, are failing due to leakage and cannot hold charge. When sudden demands are placed on them they fail, and the power supply shuts down.00:34
linuxnewbie22TJ-: My Dad mentioned that to me. I bet you're right about that.00:35
Bashing-omhellohellohello_: 'sudo apt-get install pasteninit ; sudo apt-get update | pastebinit ; sudo apt-get upgrade | pastbinit ' . The result is a URL in your terminal. Pass that link back here in the channel .00:35
linuxnewbie22TJ-: He suspected their could be a problem like that.00:35
TJ-linuxnewbie22: if you're confident with a soldering iron, or know someone who is, have all the Electrolytic capacitors examined for bulging tops and/or leakage around their base, and replace if required. Usually costs a few pennies per capacitor00:35
=== xangua_ is now known as xangua
TJ-linuxnewbie22: the key thing if you replace capacitors is to get good quality replacements (often advertised as 'made in Japan'), and make sure as well as having the same electrical rating they are the same physical diameter and have same pin pitch so their legs fit the PCB vias (holes).00:37
hellohellohellosorry, X crashed00:37
hellohellohelloBashing-om: what did you say00:37
linuxnewbie22TJ-: Thank you, I'll write everything you've said about the capacitors so I don't forget.00:38

Hpamancurious does anybody know if there is functions for traversal of the swap partition/files on the swap is this another type of filesystem or is it simple ext file system that any ext file system read/writer can traverse00:45
linuxnewbie22Tj-: Thank you for your help!00:45
TJ-Hpaman: swap is simply pages of RAM stored on disk00:50
Hpamannever mind stupid question man pages of swapon , swapoff, and mkswap cleared this up for me it can be a volume partition, whole drive , or just a file zeroed out with dd to hold the data00:51
Hpamanso any file system that is already part of linux or formated by linux to host the page/swap file is good enough... and swapoff disables this feature weather through the command line program or thru swap functions in c00:53
Hpamancurious what your guys thought on turning swapoff for all swap devices for your running os's obviously page allocator can only uses main memory for storage of process but how much is this an issue... how often is your physical memory going to by closes to full?00:55
Bashing-omHpaman: Generally, IF you have 8 Gigs of ram or more ( and do not hibernate ) AND no heavy duty number crunching, one can do without swap .00:58
p0pr0ck5getting rid of swap ties the kernels hands a bit when it comes to allocating memory for page cache- its certainly doable, but if youre running in a disk IO-intensive environment, you do lose the ability to swap out low-priority pages for more page cache00:59
Hpamanya i even have this dvd live os's that i am runing with no swap and free and vmstat give me that i still have about 40ish %01:00
Hpamanwhich is still significant and i am running testdisk and other intensive process so 8 gig's must go along way01:01
p0pr0ck5to clarify, i dont quite mean IO-intensive applications, but rather accessing many different files, as the kernel will put these into page cache as it sees fit/has room. obvs. context is important01:03

Wugalternatively, you could use tcpdump to capture udp packets on port 53, and just examine where they're going.03:10
arooni-mobileWug, i think its only usuing
arooni-mobileso does that mean its not using googles dns?03:11
_Rocsomsip thank you for your time, Wug you as well03:12
Jordan_Uarooni-mobile: That it is "using" means only that Ubuntu is configured to be running its own DNS server locally, which then simply forwards requests to another DNS server (probably google's).03:12

arooni-mobileJordan_U, how do i know *where* ubuntu is sending those dns resolutions?03:14
xangua (22:09:26) arooni-mobile: xangua, my dns settings arent listed there . yes they are http://imgur.com/TjjeQgg03:16
arooni-mobilei mean they are, but google dns isnt listed03:16
xanguathen just put google's ¿03:17
xanguawhy would they be listed¿03:17
xanguathe solution I give you is actually in the question you posted arooni-mobile , and under it it's the one marked as "best answer"03:17
xangua"I found out that you can change the nameservers that dnsmasq uses by adding the following lines to /etc/dnsmasq.conf:"03:18
arooni-mobileits really confusing to know whether the dns is actually being resolved by google dns03:18
arooni-mobileas everything i tried when i tried that solution resolved to
arooni-mobileand i was confused at how ubuntu's dns caching server was sending requets in the event it couldnt resolve an entry locally03:19
plytroI jump networks a lot and dnsmasq was screwing me up03:19
plytroi just disabled it03:20
arooni-mobilewhats the benefits/drawbacks to dnsmasq?03:21
plytroits a caching dns server in front of your configured servers03:21
plytro"faster" domain name resoltuion for more frequently visited sites?03:21
arooni-mobileis it any faster than google03:22
arooni-mobileim getting an average of < 50ms from google's dns03:22
plytroits instant03:23
plytroits on your machine03:23
plytroso yeah its faster03:23
plytrofor known domains03:23
plytronew domains still go out to google03:23
arooni-mobilehow can i test to see if its being used?03:24
arooni-mobile the important thing for me was getting off at&t's dns resolution03:24
plytroyou're resolving from
Jordan_Uarooni-mobile: Cached requests should be 1 ms or less most of the time. Dig will tell you how long a request took. Try "dig zombo.com" twice. The first time it should show about 50ms, the second it should show 1ms.03:24
plytroyou're using it03:24
plytromy problem was jumping between public and private networks and having stuff cached when I needed the external vs internal name resolution03:25
plytroit was holding on too long03:25
arooni-mobileJordan_U, well i tried putting google's dns servers in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head ... and running sudo resolvconf -u ... and now i dont think im routing anything to the local caching server03:25
arooni-mobileboth times ns lookup was 50ms03:26
Jordan_Uarooni-mobile: If you add DNS servers to resolv.conf then they will be used directly, not through the bind9 caching server.03:26
arooni-mobileso maybe i should go back to using the second solution listed; adding a prepend to etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf03:26
arooni-mobileits just hard to know when you're getting a response from localhost if its even using the google servers03:27
Jordan_Uarooni-mobile: tcpdump / wireshark is a solution to that problem, though clearly there must be a more straightforward way of verifying this (that I don't know).03:29

GAM002cfhowlett: That is the Truth03:39
Jordan_UGAM002: It depends on your needs. VirtualBox is nice for being a Free software that is easy to configure, but the guest additions for linux are of poor enough quality that they officially taint the kernel as they are considered upstream to be "feces". For my purposes qemu-kvm is a much better fit, but I mostly create and fire up tiny VMs with no GUI via the terminal.03:40

DJJeffwho cares what a stupid bot says05:11
DJJeffI am a human being thanks05:11
daftykinsnot from where i'm standing.05:11
B0g4r7_Things were working fine until I ran the "Additional drivers" thing and switched from the open source driver to "fglrx".  I tried that for a while, didn't like it, and switched back.  Now the system won't boot into GUI mode.05:11
B0g4r7_It boots into text mode, but that is unresponsive.  I can however ssh into the system and do things.05:11
DJJeffshould I just wget the 3.12 .deb and install it with # dpkg -i05:12
daftykinsyou're free to risk it, but i wouldn't recommend it.05:12
DJJeffor will that break things and cause dependency issues05:12
daftykinsB0g4r7_: ensure fglrx is gone with "sudo apt-get purge fglrx* "05:12
DJJeffusing 2 year old software cant be any better05:12
DJJeffthe next LTS 16.04 is not for a while still05:13
DJJeffhaving 16.04 come out the same time as windows 10 woulda been funny05:14
daftykinscut the chatter.05:14

daftykinsmmm that one looks slightly borked05:17
daftykinsensure you don't have a xorg.conf05:17
B0g4r7_daftykins, oh wow, purging fglrx appears to have actually fixed it.05:17

daftykinsDJJeff: grow up and drop it. chat in #ubuntu-offtopic05:18
daftykinsno problemo05:18
B0g4r7_I tell ya, I've had about enough of trying to make AMD graphics work nicely.  I'm about ready to go and buy me some Nvidia.05:19
daftykinsdid you try fglrx-updates ?05:19
DJJeffNvidia is worse05:19
daftykinsno, AMD is worse.05:19
DJJeffI have Nvidia GTX 66005:19
B0g4r7_daftykins, I did not.  I understood it was essentially the same thing as fglrx.05:19
DJJefftruing to get 3D Accel with Ubuntu Trusty and Virtualbox05:19
DJJeffis a pain in the !@#05:19
daftykinsbear in mind Canonical has created an official PPA with newer drivers for all setups now, so it should be better to use than what you may have as standard05:20
daftykinsDJJeff: that's a virtualbox problem, nothing to do with nvidia drivers working05:20
daftykinsthus your comment is moot.05:20
cfhowlettB0g4r7_, of the 3 top gpu companies, amd is probably the least linux friendly.  fwiw: nvidia prime works perfect on my dell m3800 with quad k110005:20
B0g4r7_From what I read, Nvidia as a company is bad for open source, but their hardware tends to work better [than AMD] with linux.05:20
DJJeffI do give Nvidia props for that05:20
cfhowlettB0g4r7_, they may be "bad" for opensource (debatable), but they do provide OEM linux drivers.  +1!05:21
DJJeffbetter hardware crappy software05:21
DJJefffrom both Nvidia and AMD05:21
B0g4r7_I also hear that Intel "on-board" graphics work great, but they're not really in the same class as a discrete GPU.05:21
DJJeffwell ATI had the worst software until AMD took over05:22
cfhowlettB0g4r7_, on-board typically = laptop.  you should expect different performance metrics.05:22
DJJeffwhats a good GPU benchmark tool for ubuntu05:23
DJJeffglxgears is too silly for me05:23
B0g4r7_I mean like "Intel HD Graphics 4000" or whatever is built into the newer I5, I7, and whatnot chips.05:23
cfhowlettDJJeff, lots of them listed in ubuntu software center.05:23
DJJeffwhich one is the best05:23
DJJeffor is that just preference05:23

minimecpagios: Ok. So I wiped ChromeOS and use a clean fedora22 installation on it. So I cannot help you with USB related things with Crouton. The ChromeOS kernel should be able to handle USB. Can you plug a USB webcam or so?07:02
pagiosminimec: so mainly you wiped the whole chromeos ?!07:03
FlannelNekoTheCat: Put it somewhere on your PATH (echo $PATH).  If you want it installed for everyone that uses your computer, you'd put it in /usr/local/bin/, if you want it installed just for you, you'd put it in ~/bin/07:03

mikhael_k33hlUbuntu no longer boots up. Tried to run a live Ubuntu via usb and running Boot repair but an error occurred: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12197625/07:33
Mattiasmikhael_k33hl: Do you boot from the correct ssd? Go into the BIOS and try setting the correct one in bootup sequence07:36
lotuspsychje!recovery | mikhael_k33hl try this maybe07:37
ubottumikhael_k33hl try this maybe: If your system fails to boot normally, it may be useful to boot it into recovery mode. For instructions, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode07:37
mikhael_k33hlMattias: during bootup pressed F12 and tried booting up from all available options07:37
mikhael_k33hllotuspsychje: I'll give that a try07:37
lotuspsychjemikhael_k33hl: when did this all start to happen?07:38
mikhael_k33hlJust turned off my computer yesterday, when I turned it back on today, this is what happened.07:38
lotuspsychjemikhael_k33hl: after an update perhaps?07:38
Mattiasan update shouldn't remove grub -.-07:39
MattiasOr can it?07:39
lotuspsychjeMattias: sometimes updates have influence on boot, not specially grub07:40
mikhael_k33hllotuspsychje: Recovery doesn't work, it'll only display the word GRUB on a black screen with the letter C then when I press anything, it says "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key.07:40
MattiasSure, a new linux kernel, but grub should still show the last kernel as an option in case the new one doesn't work. But yeah, maybe it was a new grub update I don't know about.07:41
ikoniaubuntu will always keep at least N -1 kernel in the grub menu07:42
overdrivehi, is there any way to enable back again the setup prompt/ncurses to set ubuntu/system user password at boot time?07:44
overdriveubuntu has root account disabled with no password, and I was wondering if there is any way, not only to set the user password on the first boot, but later on, in an already installed and configured system07:44
tamltnmarcogood morning07:44
ikoniaoverdrive: what is the problem you are trying to solve07:45
minimecoverdrive: 'sudo -i', then 'passwd' wil give you the possibility to set a root password after installation.07:46
Mattiasmikhael_k33hl: And reading that output, there is no real error apart from that it can't find grub on the second ssd and it can't use the second ssd since it is busy. But it does find grub on the first ssd and everything is fine there. Basically it means grub is ok. The second thing to fix is a working linux kernel. Which should be there as an option. If you see nothing under grub, something must have happened07:46
Mattiasto the grub config file. Use a recovery system you can put on the USB and fix all that.07:46
Mattiasoverdrive: highly recommended not to set a root password. it's a security risk. and you don't need it since the user can become root whenever it wants using the user password, if the user has admin rights with sudo07:48
Mattiasoverdrive: so to remove a password from a user, root as an example, you can use "sudo passwd -l root".07:49
Mattiassimilarly, you can set a new password skipping the -l part07:50
mikhael_k33hlMattias: How do I fix it? I'm currently running a live usb Ubuntu mate, hehehe07:50
Mattiasmikhael_k33hl: Well, grub seems to work. So.. try to reinstall all kernels for a start, here is a nice answer: http://askubuntu.com/questions/28099/how-to-restore-a-system-after-accidentally-removing-all-kernels07:51

mikhael_k33hlMattias: can't even get to grub, black screen saying  ""Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key."08:04
MattiasAh, ok, that's your BIOS not seeing grub then. Usually it's the wrong disk selected in bootup.08:05
MattiasIf it's not, then something is wrong with that recovery tool, because it could see it :)08:05
Mattiasshoaib: Looks like Tor is already running. Or something else is already using port 905008:06
shoaibi killed tor and started again, it did something called bootstrapping but same error08:06
shoaibhow can i find out what is using port 9050 and stop it from using it?08:07
lotuspsychje!tor | shoaib08:07
ubottushoaib: Tor is a program to route connections through several servers for anonymity. It is in Ubuntu's repositories, but the Tor Project recommends using their Tor packages due to past issues with Ubuntu's. For setup info, see option (2) of https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en | To use Tor on freenode, see !tor-sasl08:07
Mattiasshoaib: what does this give you?: ss -aln | grep 905008:07

shoaibtcp    LISTEN     0      128                    *:*08:08

shoaibno, shall i do it now?08:09
Mattiassee what happens, not sure if it has a service script though (I don't use tor)08:09
MattiasI prefer using a vpn08:10
shoaibJob for tor.service failed. See "systemctl status tor.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.08:10

Mattiasmikhael_k33hl: Yeah, I've had issues with bootup before on my current computer. Took a while to figure out. Just try everything you can find and hope for the best. The current message you get just means it can't find grub or another bootloader on the selected disk for bootup08:12

overdriveikonia / minimec / Mattias : sorry I was away from keyboard. Really I have a user (not root) with some default password set, and then I configure the system (with some configuration manager). And then, the idea, is in the next boot, set the password for this "new user" (not root) in interactive way for the first user that boots the system, in order to change the "default password" I set initially.08:14

lotuspsychjePudgePacket: ok make sure there all new firmwares are up to date on your ssd08:24
mikhael_k33hlMattias: It's workign now, perhaps grub needed an update? I''m not sure though08:24
Mattiasmikhael_k33hl: something must have happened to grub. well, now you have a fresh kernel and a fresh grub ;)08:24

TJ-Furai: It's simply reporting that the ACPI sub-system doesn't have Power Clocking Control08:47
satellite_Mattias, no, drivers are fine08:47
MattiasAnd don't trust the buffer bar, sometimes it might show more than it has actually buffered. You might not have enough of a buffer. And depending on video, even on a 100Mbit line it might not buffer fast enough. Because youtube might actually be slow :P08:47
FuraiToday it seems as well that upstart had some problems starting. Dunno why, I was sure I was using systemd anyway.08:48
MattiasI've noticed certain videos are faster than others, not sure if it's because of different youtube servers08:48

muellimistralol: good suggestion. How long do you think is appropriate?  What about, say, half a year.  What then?10:33
mistralolmuelli: not sure then. Could raise a bug I guess but i assume you have done that already10:34
abdellahi look woman to mariedd10:34
muellimistralol: check.10:34
mistralolmuelli: there is probably a way to flag the package as abandoned by maintainer10:34
mistralolthen become the maintainer ;)10:34
muellifair enough.  mistralol: do you more about that flagging process?10:35
mistralolmuelli: dunno whats the package?10:36
TJ-muelli: first thing is to ensure your patch and merge request are for the development version, currently 15.10. Once that is accepted and released, request an SRU for previous releases if appropriate (usually only bug-fixes)10:38
mistralolmuelli: also an active report helps too :D10:39
TJ-muelli: it looks as if the lp:pygpgme branch is no longer active; the python-gpgme debian/Changelog shows a new upstream release was packaged in 201410:42
mistralolTJ-: just wondering how do you go about getting a package into ubuntu?10:43

pagiosany idea?10:45
pagiosoutput is same as when not pluggin anything10:45
TJ-mistralol: package it, and propose it via a use-case in a bug report, plus an email to ubuntu-devel@ is a good start10:45

dw1or just the quotes10:49
rorydw1: Yeah I tried that too10:50
roryTJ-: It's my IRC logs. The example I gave is me saying "Foo". I want to grep for only lines I've said, not lines with contain my nick10:50
roryTJ-: Hence "Rory     " not just "Rory"10:50

habbasiHello. My PC boots into a black screen once I select Install Xubuntu. Monitor goes into power save mode,10:56
TJ-rory: Pro Tip. when in doubt "hexdump -C /path/to/file | less" and look at the character codes :)10:56
habbasiKeyboard is responsive, caps lock turns on and off.10:57

jjavah0lici can't deselect using touchpad what can i do to resolve this?10:57
habbasiTJ-: I'll try the ones I can.10:58
TJ-habbasi: sometimes, althought rarely, the wrong monitor output can be selected. The other issue is that the monitor cannot support the resolution being requested by the OS due to the monitor not providing the correct resolution information via EDID10:58
habbasiTJ-: I was thinking resolution too. Is there a way to force it?11:00
habbasiTJ-: (To a specific resolution)11:00
TJ-habbasi: usually if the EDID is invalid the driver will only ask for VESA standard resolutions and timings, which all monitors must support11:00

TJ-habbasi: No. Installation is in the same mode as the installer booted11:16
intalright. give me a moment11:16

intthat's what I read when I googled around for the problem11:18
ImOk-365or unplug at least11:18
TJ-habbasi: OK, so when the installer starts you get a GRUB boot menu, yes? In which case highlight the Install entry, press 'e' to edit it, navigate to the line beginning "linux ..." and at then end of the line, but before any double-hyphens (--) add the word "nomodeset" then press either F10 or Ctrl+X to boot with that11:18

intinteresting video lmOk-365, I'll keep it around11:26
ImOk-365but....i may have missed, why driver updates aren't solving anything?11:26
ImOk-365yeah, that part i linked to is the removal of the wireless card11:26
habbasiTJ-: Important components are a GA-Z97X-Gaming GT mobo and a GTX 970.11:27
hateballhabbasi: I may have missed some information, but you need a later driver than what is in 15.04 to support GTX97011:28
TJ-int: I'm going to guess, from the linux source code, the device ID is 168c:002b11:28
Mattiasoverdrive: never used chage myself so I don't really know.11:29
habbasihateball: Hmm. Is there a way to at least get it to install?11:29
intyep, that's on the list, labeled "Network controller"11:29
intanyway, here's the pic11:29
TJ-habbasi: If the nouveau driver doesn't support that device, then it ought to be possible to use the VESA driver11:30
hateballhabbasi: as I said I havent seen all the info. is the main problem you cant boot the install media at all?11:30
ImOk-365so if testdisk shows my ubuntu partition as "NTFS"  ....that's pretty much hopeless, isn't it?11:30
hateballhabbasi: you should as TJ- says, be able to use VESA driver, then add this PPA https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa and install the latest nvidia drivers11:30
TJ-hateball: From the installer? not possible!11:31
ImOk-365i installed another distro and grubbed everything all up i guess,11:31
habbasihateball: I can't see anything when I hit try xubuntu11:31
habbasiImOk-365: I've had success with TestDisk with worse.11:31
TJ-hateball: habbasi's problem is the UEFI-based boot of the installer is failing11:31
hateballTJ-: No, but he should be able to install and then do that from a tty or just running VESA on the installed version11:31
ImOk-365but how can i ....NTFS --> ext4     without losing all the info on that partition?11:32
habbasihateball: But how do I get the installer to show?11:32
ImOk-365how did it even happen, lol11:32
hateballhabbasi, TJ- so not even the splash to choose kernel options etc?11:32
TJ-habbasi: You say you have other distros on there? how about using one of those, create a virtual machine guest, point it at the hard disk, and attach the installer ISO as a CDROM, and install it that way?11:32
TJ-hateball: we've tried nomodeset so far11:32
hateballTJ-: so that much shows at least?11:33
habbasiTJ-: Not on the USB, no. On the PC, yes.11:33
TJ-hateball: Yes, the monitor is doing DPMS sleep when the X server starts from the sound of it11:33
hateballdid you try blacklisting nouveau as kernel option ?11:33
TJ-habbasi: that is what I mean... boot the PC with a working distro, create a VM there, and install using it11:33
habbasihateball: How would one do that?11:34
hateballTJ-, habbasi you add "nouveau.blacklist=yes" at the boot line11:34
TJ-habbasi: the VM will use a basic virtual GPU so you won't hit the problem... then you can do an install of the required drivers aftewards11:34
TJ-habbasi: try hateball's suggestion11:34
habbasihateball: gfxpayload=keep11:35
TJ-int: Are you still alive?11:35
habbasihateball: Do I remov that?11:35
intTJ-: yeah, I posted the pic earlier11:35
intforgot to put your name in the message11:35
hateballhabbasi: you should be able to press F6 to edit the boot parameters, then just type as you normally do, using backspace etc11:35
inthere it is again:11:35
TJ-int: Yes, it confirmed what I had deduced. Do you know how to boot your PC in Recovery mode?11:35
intnot really!11:36
hateballhabbasi: remove "quiet splash" as well11:36
TJ-hateball: it is a UEFI boot... uses GRUB .. no function keys, needs direct GRUB menuentry edit11:36
hateballTJ-: Ah right, my bad11:36
hateballthen it's... I dont remember the keys11:36
hateballbut they show on the interface do they not?11:36
habbasihateball: If that goes before ---, no dice.11:37
hateballctrl+something to edit, something other to boot11:37
intTJ-: found it in the grub menu, under "Advanced options for Ubuntu"11:37
brumHi. I have question relating to a bash script on ubuntu. Script is called by a .bashrc when a guest user loggs on and it calls another one from within. It works fine (calling the second script) when launched from a terminal but not when started by a .bashrc11:37
TJ-int: In the same way you just got to the GRUB boot menu, hold down the Shift key at boot until you see the menu... then Choose "Advanced sub-menu". There you'll see several entries, some of which will be named "Recovery ..."... choose the first of those and you'll end up at a text console, and should see a coloured text menu with several options.11:37
TJ-int: You need to choose "root shell" and that should get you to a console command line prompt.11:38
hateballhabbasi: I dont have a UEFI boot handy and I dont remember, but TJ- perhaps can guide you how to edit the boot options11:38
TJ-int: I'm hping we can fend off the PC freezing long enough by doing it that way, to give you time to add the blacklist entry11:38
elcrcpwoah! irc still alive :D11:39
habbasihateball: I can edit.11:39
TJ-hateball: UEFI uses regular GRUB boot menu, so highlight entry, press 'E', navigate to line beginning "linux ..." etc11:39
habbasihateball: It says the keys right there.11:39
TJ-int: tell me when/if you get to the command line prompt11:40
hateballhabbasi: so put "nouveau.blacklist=yes" without "" at the end of the line that TJ- said ^ and then boot11:40
intTJ-: OK, dropped to root shell prompt11:40
habbasihateball: It says the keys right there. Already did, no dice.11:41
habbasiCould it be a USB3 issue?11:41
hateballhabbasi: and what happens? just goes black at once or is it when X loads?11:41
habbasihateball: Soon as I select the entry to boot, with or without edits, the monitor turns black and goes to power save after a second or so.11:42
hateballhabbasi: oh ;f11:42
habbasihateball: Aftter maybe one message that disappears too fast.11:43
TJ-int: Type "mount -o remount,rw /"11:43

SeerKan`Hi guys11:44
intTJ-: Ah, okay11:44
TJ-int: type "ls /etc/modprobe.d/" so you get an idea of the files there11:44
SeerKan`Any gluster expert around, have a question I can't seem to find an answer too anywhere..11:45
TJ-int: now you're going to create the blacklist file: "echo "blacklist ath9k" > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-ath9k.conf"11:45
TJ-int: now do "ls /etc/modprobe.d/" again, you should see you file there now11:45
SeerKan`If I mount a gluster volume from server1 with server2 as backup with the fuse mount, I understand that once server1 is down it will use server2 automatically. But what happens when server1 is back ? will it start automatically use server1 even if it doesn't have the latest data or keep using server2 until it goes down and then go back to server1 ?11:46
TJ-int: and check its contents with "cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-ath9k.conf"11:46
TJ-int: type "sync" to ensure the disk is updated11:46
TJ-SeerKan`: That might be a question for #ubuntu-server11:47
SeerKan`ok thanks TJ-, I will try11:47
brumHi. I have question relating to a bash script on ubuntu. Script is called by a .bashrc when a guest user loggs on and it calls another one from within. It works fine (calling the second script) when launched from a terminal but not when started by a .bashrc11:48
intTJ: it returned "blacklist-ath9k". I guess it worked11:48
intoops, I meant TJ-11:48
TJ-int: ahhh... error... that should be "blacklist ath9k" (a space separater)11:48
intTJ-: oh, there isn't a space. my phone just autocorrected it to that for some reason.11:49
TJ-int: if that shows a hyphen separator, redo the command:11:49
intphones are the worst11:49
TJ-int: Ahhh, DestructivePrediction :)11:49
intTJ-: you know it11:49
TJ-int: OK ... you've fixed it (if the WiFi is the problem), you can type "exit" and the choose "resume boot" or whatever the top entry is11:49
TJ-int: or you can do a complete reboot11:50
intTJ-: I'll do a clean reboot for the sake of it11:50
U^1I am trying to record my screen with recordmyscreen. the audio doesn't sync with video. why?11:52
intTJ-: hell yeah, wireless doesn't appear in my Network list11:53
intTJ-: I think it should be solved now11:53
intTJ-: thanks so much, I really appreciate it!11:54
TJ-int: if you're going to open the laptop up you might consider simply buying an identical model adapter and replacing the existing one, so you have internal workign Wifi again11:54
intTJ-: I'll definitely consider it. I've been itching to learn how to mess with hardware for months now but never really bothered. This is a good excuse to, I guess.11:55
TJ-int: see http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=N53s+wifi&_sacat=011:56
intTJ-: oh, they're a lot cheaper than I thought they'd be11:57
TJ-int: exactly. Just try to be sure you get one with the same Atheros AR9285 chipset, some will be Intel or Ralink or whatever11:58
TJ-int: although the chipset won't stop it working, the different cards might have different functions, or lack some you expect, such as dual-band, or 802.11n11:59
intTJ-: Alright, noted. When I do replace it, I'd only have to delete hat blacklist-ath9k.conf file to reverse the block, right?12:00
TJ-int: correct12:00
intTJ-: Nice.12:00
TJ-int: that Intel card top of the listing looks good; I just checked its specs12:00
TJ-int: search for "Intel 112BNHMW" and that will bring up many more options for a compatible card12:02
BluesKajhiyas all12:04
intTJ-: Yeah, I might get one of those. the other listing you posted were all international items with pretty expensive postage prices12:04
TJ-int: yeah... I was trying to find you model-specific details to get an idea of compatible devices first, then widen the search based on what was discovered12:05
habbasiTJ-, hateball: Installing with iGFX for now. Thanks for all the help, mates.12:05
intTJ-: Ah, alright12:05
TJ-int any mini-PCI Express half-length card should do of course12:06
hateballhabbasi: good luck. you should be able to add the nvidia PPA as I mentioned tho, and go from there12:07
intTJ-: I'd imagine so, the chip itself is a pretty generic wireless card from what I know.12:07

walachi, my wired network stopped to work after an update yesterday, I cannot even ping my router. I setup eth0 interface and routing table by hand but it didn't work. dmesg shows no problem. Anyone experiencing this same problem?13:12
OerHekswalac, wired, that is strange, tried to reset your router ?13:13
walacOerHeks: yep, I have a Windows installation in another partition, and it works fine13:13
TJ-walac: probably the ethernet interface has changed its name13:14
FlamesHi can anyone help me with a ubuntu installation problem13:15
EriC^^Flames: what's the problem?13:15
walacTJ-: let me check13:15
FlamesBasically I installed Ubuntu on virtualbox and just finished the installation. It asked me to reboot and I did and then asked for password13:16
FlamesWhen I enter the password it just shows a purple screen and goes back to the login screen13:16
walacTJ-: nope, it is still the same13:16
TJ-walac: what kind of upgrade was it? did it include a kernel upgrade?13:17
TJ-walac: also are you able to pastebin the result of "lspci -nnk" ?13:17
walacTJ-: I didn't check, I did it through automatic update13:17
EriC^^Flames: ok, did you checksum the .iso?13:18
TJ-Flames: EriC^^ sounds like a Unity/no GPU 3D acceleration issue13:19

EriC^^Flames: are you using virtualbox?13:20
EriC^^TJ-: yeah, but i usually don't choose any non-default options13:21
TJ-EriC^^: does VB provide GPU acceleration by default, or does it need support in the guest?13:21
EriC^^Flames: try going to settings > display and set the memory to 128M and maybe enable 3D if it doesn't work13:21
EriC^^TJ-: there are some drivers you can install later, but usually i just install with the default settings and it works13:23
FlamesThanks, i'll try and let you know13:23

walacTJ-: yes, I am. No vlan involved13:43
TJ-walac: "sudo tcpdump -vvni eth0" might give you a clue if there are any IP packets on the link13:43
TJ-walac: you may see STP adverts and other packets, which would confirm the link is alive and working13:44

habbasiXubuntu screen going to power save after spinning boot screen and message "Starting version 219".13:45

TJ-walac: Hmmm... well, put something on the other end of the cable and use tcpdump there to see if it is receiving packets13:46
EriC^^Flames: try cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | nc termbin.com 999913:46
EriC^^paste the link here13:46
TJ-walac: another issue could be some kind of power-save mode the interface has been put into, but as you've got a link up and can see packets I doubt that13:48

TJ-walac: you haven't got some local firewall rules blocking everything have you?13:48

U-bantui am having  a installation problem . ubuntu-15.04-desktop-i386 , i am new to UBUNTU i tried downloading power iso and installing using it . UBUNTU did not install . I removed teh power iso software an now i do not know how to install the os on my windows? can i get any help here?15:02
minimecpagios: I see. So that crouton 'thing' is rather good...15:05
Norbinam i better off with 15.04 for a new skylake rig ?15:05
mkanyicyU-bantu: you should write the ubuntu iso to the DVD and use that to boot ubuntu and try it out without installing it first15:06
auronandaceU-bantu: you burn the iso to a disk then boot from it, you don't install it from inside windows15:06
mkanyicyU-bantu: then you can continue installing it using the DVD if you wish to do so15:06
mkanyicyU-bantu: but you need to shutdown windows and start the computer and boot from disk (you might need to press F2 or F8 or F12 or Del) depending on your machine and choose boot from disk on Bios settings15:07
U-bantuauronandace: mkanyicy: thanks for the response but i get that  there is a way to install in from inside windows  do you know any thing about it?15:09
auronandaceU-bantu: you could install it in a vm. virtualbox is a good place to start15:10

EriC^^yes try the command with rmdir15:52

ActionParsnipU-bantu: wubi is dead. It hasn't been deveoped for over 5 YEARS15:54

auronandace!usb | U-bantu15:54
ubottuU-bantu: For information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent15:54
TJ-Nokaji: OK. first check the *exact* name of the mountpoint directory, if it still exists: "ls -l /media/tris/"15:55
EriC^^U-bantu: get 2 usb's one for the live usb, and the other to install ubuntu to, and in the installer choose Something else at the bottom when it asks how to install and install it to the usb15:55
TJ-Nokaji: then if it does exist do "sudo rmdir /media/tris/<name-here>"15:55
TJ-Nokaji: then check the directory has gone: "ls -l /media/tris/"15:56
EriC^^Nokaji: use quotes, sudo rmdir "/media/tris/....."15:56
TJ-yeah that ^^^^15:56
U-bantuauronandace:ubottu: EriC^^:  Ok15:56
TJ-EriC^^: what is the actual problem here anyhow? :D15:56
TJ-EriC^^: It mounted correctly15:56
EriC^^TJ-: i think he used disks to mount a fresh partition and he can't create, checked the mountpoint in /media it's owned by root and persistent15:57
NokajiTJ-: not showing up wit ls -l ... proly as unmountedf15:57
EriC^^so i guess disks created the mountpoint as owned by root or something15:57
TJ-EriC^^: for ext* that is expected behaviour. The mountpoint adopts the ownership of the root directory of the file-system, which after creation will be root:root15:58
ActionParsnipU-bantu: if you want to test the OS you can use virtualbox15:58
EriC^^TJ-: ah really?15:58
EriC^^i thought it would get the permissions of the mountpoint and the subdirs just persist15:59
TJ-EriC^^: Only permission-less file-systems such as FAT mount with user ownership since they don't have any ownership info of their own15:59
NokajiTJ-: oops, did rmdir anyway without noticing the clause - it wasn't there to begin with15:59
kasperHi, how do i run a .py script in my downloads folder?15:59
TJ-Nokaji: that's OK - can't rmdir what isn't there15:59
kasperWhen finished go to your Downloaded items and run the application using the following command:15:59
kasperpython SecureW2_JoinNow.py15:59
TJ-Nokaji: I think you may have been chasing a red herring15:59
EriC^^TJ-: it doesn't make much sense though, if you have a dir owned already by a user, and you mount under it, the perms of that dir would change?15:59
kaspergot these instructtions to get acces to my univeristy wifi network...but no idea how i can run it16:00
EriC^^and when you unmount the fs, the dir changes back?16:00
NokajiTJ-: I read somewhere to avoid this perhaps i should have configured the drive whilst logged on under sudo, to retain ownership - maybe not16:00
EriC^^Nokaji: i guess you have to do sudo chown tris: "/media/tris/V 250GB BU"16:02
NokajiEriC^^: External drives are treated differently, from what I've scoured on the net16:02
Nokajitrying it ..16:02

TomyWorkActionParsnip less than i have available on the new machine :)16:08
EriC^^Nokaji: as TJ- said the fs has a root dir, like "/" and that dir is set to root as the owner16:08
ActionParsnipTomyWork: but do you have that amount of space on a USB drive etc?16:08
TomyWorkno, but there's sshfs16:08
TomyWorkor nfs if i want to hurt myself :)16:09
EriC^^Nokaji: so whenever you mount it, it'll be owned by root even if your user mounts it, it should always work now though as you chown'd the dir16:09
ActionParsnipTomyWork: you could tar everything except /home and /var/log    then if you need anything from the old system you can extract it from the archive16:10
Nokajiokay EriC^^: I'll save the log for this one and go through it again at my leisure - I see roughly what you are saying, though - many thanks indeed16:10

ActionParsnipkadiro: if the fsck fixes the disk then no...16:28
TJ-kasper: England16:29
kasperah that's common law...covering that in october16:29
kadiroActionParsnip: the system said that my programs are not installed16:29
kasperso all good as long as you stay out of jail till after the december exams TJ-  :D16:29
kasperafter that i can help you out :D16:30
kadiroafter booting from live lubuntu and reinstalling the system this problem happen16:30

ubottuTJ-,: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!16:30
TJ-Normal service will resume shortly16:31
kasperTJ-, as long as you don't give them shelter and lie to the cops about it you should be fine16:31
kadiroI think linux system have no reinstall16:32
mavensaysGuys should i switch to KDE from unity what are your pro's and con's and do you suggest any other DE (cinnamon maybe)?16:32
kasperso TJ- any experience with ubuntu and win7 dual boots? can i do a fresh iso reinstall of win7 without messing things up in ubuntu?16:32
kadiroi followed some web site and said it will do but not16:32
kasperor is this off topic? sorry16:32
cfhowlettmavensays, install them, test them, and decide for yourself.16:32
kadiromavensays: Unity take more RAM than gnome3, gnome2, and finally kde, so kde is best for you16:33
mavensays@cfhowlett true, i am a big fan of gnome 2 who switched to unity with gnome 2 fallback & i have used KDE before was not very happy with it but off late friends are recommending KDE 5+16:34
cfhowlettmavensays,  unless your friends are using YOUR machine, you might find it more informative to just --- test them for yourself.  free and easy to do.16:34
TJ-kasper: on BIOS/Legacy installs, GRUB's bootstrap code in the MBR will be replaced by Windows, so the best thing to do is save it first with "sudo dd if=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1 of=/home/$USER/mbr.bin" then you can boot from a live ISO later, mount the file-system, and write that file back with "sudo dd if=/<montpoint>/home/<username>/mbr.bin of=/dev/sdX" where X is the drive letter16:34
cfhowlett!flavors | mavensays16:35
ubottumavensays: !Ubuntu-GNOME, !Kubuntu, !Xubuntu and !Lubuntu are simply flavors of Ubuntu that come with GNOME, KDE, Xfce, and LXDE (respectively) installed as default, instead of Unity. Other specialized flavors of Ubuntu include !Edubuntu, Ubuntu !Studio, and !Mythbuntu.16:35
kasperTJ-, thanks!16:35
RustyShacklefordso I'm having an issue with my digital ocean node16:39
RustyShacklefordit has been quite a while since I updated16:39
daftykinsRustyShackleford: they have great support then, since you pay them...16:40
daftykinsi would speak with them first.16:40
RustyShacklefordwhen I run "sudo aptitude update", I get some rather wierd output16:41
RustyShacklefordyeah I guess I'll see what kind of support they have16:41
daftykinswell "sudo apt update" would make more sense16:41
daftykinsand you can't really say that without a pastebin :)16:41
RustyShacklefordyeah I'm working on it haha16:41
daftykinsbut yes, consult the people you pay before you ask volunteers for their time.16:41
RustyShacklefordI prefer aptitude, but I could try apt-get and see if that makes a difference16:41
RustyShackleford Failed to fetch http://mirrors.digitalocean.com/ubuntu/dists/utopic-backports/universe/source/Sources: 404  Not Fo16:42
RustyShacklefordund [IP: 80]16:42
daftykinsutopic, good lord16:42
daftykinsyeah your release is dead.16:42
ubottuUbuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) was the 21st release of Ubuntu.  Support ended on July 23rd, 2015. See !eol, !upgrade and http://ubottu.com/y/utopic16:42
daftykinsyou shouldn't be using that :)16:42
RustyShacklefordso... is that the reason for a 404 error?16:42
daftykinsthey've likely taken down those sections since utopic is dead, yes16:43
daftykinswhich would likely be in their help...16:43
RustyShacklefordand can I upgrade to a newer version of ubuntu without having my current install up to date?16:43
daftykinsnot ideal16:44
daftykinsbackup + create a new droplet then migrate the data16:44
daftykinseasiest way16:44
RustyShacklefordi'd really rather not spin up a new instance... but I suppose you're right16:44
RustyShacklefordbetter start backing up my config files16:45
p0pr0ck5shouldnt have ignored LTS then ;)16:45
daftykinsRustyShackleford: you should be on 14.0416:45
RustyShacklefordshould I install 14.04 instead of 15.04?16:45
daftykinsi just said16:46
RustyShacklefordthe plan was to keep it up to date haha. Its funny how that didn't happen16:46
tewardRustyShackleford: 14.04 is the LTS.  I would advise NOT upgrading until the next LTS comes out16:46

championofcyrodihello.  Question.  I have a clone of the amd64 archive.ubuntu.com, but of course my client needs some i386 packages.  I'm cloning w/ a tool called cobbler, which uses debmirror under the hood..17:06
championofcyrodithe question i have is,17:06
championofcyrodishould i replicate the i386 repo in the *same* path as my current amd64 repo url?17:06
championofcyrodior can i specify a seperate repo for i386 in /etc/apt/sources.list17:07
TJ-championofcyrodi: you can do either17:07
championofcyrodiTJ- which would you do?17:07
championofcyrodii'm okay w/ dumping it all in 117:07
championofcyrodisince its all 'trusty'17:08
TJ-championofcyrodi: if you want to limit a deb: entry to a list of architectures simply use the form  "deb [arch=i386,amd64] http..."17:08
championofcyrodii think i might like the modular approach to having my 32 bit repo separate17:08
TJ-championofcyrodi: you could have 2 deb: lines, one for amd64 and the other for i386, if you wished17:08
championofcyrodigotcha. that is what i was looking for...17:08
championofcyrodithe deb [arch] optional flag17:09
drethyAny suggestions for an alarm clock for ubuntu?17:09
championofcyrodimaybe i should have done 'man sources.list' or something17:09
Hamiltonian__Hi, how can I kill all of the processes that show up after the following command: ps aux | grep libreoffice17:09
daftykinskillall libreoffice ?17:09
championofcyrodiTJ- thanks again17:10
Hamiltonian__daftykins: did not know that there was a killall command, looking it up17:10
Hamiltonian__daftykins: I get: libreoffice: no process found17:12
Hamiltonian__daftykins: but if I run ps aux | grep libreoffice, it shows 6 processes17:12
EriC^^Hamiltonian__: try pkill libreoffice17:12
daftykinsit has to match the actual binaries, so if it's the beginning or end you might add a *17:12
Hamiltonian__Eric^^ that did not run into an error, but did not kill the processes17:15
Hamiltonian__When I run ps aux | grep libreoffice, this is what I see: http://i.imgur.com/ZJFhPgS.png17:15
TomyWorkHamiltonian__ be careful with killall17:15
TomyWorkon solaris it really kills all17:15
EriC^^Hamiltonian__: you could try pkill /usr/lib/libreoffice17:16
TomyWorkand pkill is usually the better choice anyway17:16
Hamiltonian__TomyWork, haha looks like I got lucky, everything's still running ;)17:16
beakyhow do i do middle-click paste in ubuntu17:16
beakyon a device with a trackpad17:16
beakybut no mouse17:16
TomyWorkHamiltonian__ lucky... or not on a solaris17:16
EriC^^beaky: shift+insert17:16
TomyWorkEriC^^ that's not the same17:17
beakyEriC^^ wow thanks17:17
Ultra4Hi all17:17
Hamiltonian__EriC^^, I would like general method that can take the output of ps aux | grep XXX and kill all of those processes, is it possible?17:17
Kasper-irssiwow this is seriously old skool17:17
TomyWorkbeaky look up "3 button emulation" or something on google17:17
beakywow after 4 years of using ubuntu i just learned how to paste17:17
beakywithout middle clck17:17
TomyWorkctrl-v in most applications17:17
Ultra4Have been 10.04.3 LTS support ended? Can't undestand this at full https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases17:17
EriC^^Hamiltonian__: you could kill them from htop i think17:18
TomyWorkterminals require shift-ins (or ctrl-shift-v on some terminals)17:18
cfhowlettUltra4, yes it's done17:18
Ultra4cfhowlett: thanks17:18
tewardUltra4: all 10.04 versions are EOl now17:18
TJ-If the processes are stuck, you'll need kill -KILL not the default kill -TERM17:18
tewardUltra4: if the version you look at is under the "End of life" category, it's got no more support17:18
Ultra4teward: ty17:18
TomyWorkyou say "kill=$(pgrep libreoffice)" and then you can say "kill -KILL $kill"17:19
beakyheh overkill17:19
daftykinsHamiltonian__: ah so the actual program is oosplash.17:20
daftykinsHamiltonian__: killall oosplash17:20
EriC^^TomyWork: yes it is, shift+insert is like pressing the middle mouse to paste, no?17:20
EriC^^what do you mean nope?17:20
EriC^^highlight something, press shift+insert, eh voila17:21
TomyWorkmiddle mouse pastes the primary selection, shift+ins pastes the clipboard17:21
EriC^^no, shift+ctrl+v pastes the clipboard, shift+insert pastes the selection, as does middle mouse button17:21
EriC^^try it ;)17:21
Hamiltonian__daftykins, killing oosplash did it, thanks man!17:22
TomyWorki told Konsole to copy to both :D17:22
TomyWorkEriC^^ the only application i have that does that is xterm17:23
TomyWorkeverything else behaves like i said17:23
EriC^^you've modded it that way i guess17:24
TomyWorkKDE behaviour i guess17:24
TomyWorkand i'm glad it's that way17:24
TomyWorki use ctrl-v and shift-ins interchangably17:24
TomyWorkwhatever is closest17:24
championofcyrodiin vi it's just p/P17:25
TomyWorkthat's a 3rd clipboard :)17:25
championofcyrodithe thing i like about vi, is that it tells you to basically go home when your brain is tired, by frustrating the hell out of you.17:26
championofcyrodiunless you work at home, then you go make a sandwich i guess17:27
TomyWorki use mcedit whenever i'm forced to use a console. kate otherwise17:32

neyder_hi there17:33
AndriusBartulisI have a question: one of my monitors is a really low end iiyama monitor and looks horrible when not callibrated. On windows I used to use the built in calibration tool which used to work (no hardware needed just "by eye" calibration). However I can't seem to figure out how to do this on a gnu system. Any ideas? I tried installing dipscalGUI but it required calibration hardware which I do not have. Any thoughts?17:33
TomyWork404 Not Found17:34
TomyWorkAndriusBartulis a gnu system is basically just the console, i think you mean X, right? :)17:34
TomyWorkyour desktop environment probably has some kind of tool to help you17:35
TomyWorkwhich one do you use? gnome? kde? xfce?17:35
AndriusBartulisTomyWork, depends how you look at it, but yeah. Unity has Device Color Profiles tool but it only allows me to load profiles, as the calibrate button is grayed out (because I guess it needs hardware again, but I want software only calibration)17:36
neyder_how can I use geometry on a program that doesnt support '-geometry HxW+v+h' parameter?17:36
shambatnoticed my server went into read only mode, so I rebooted, and now fsck finds errors. However, its asking me to "Press F to attempt to fix the errors", this does nothing (in fact none of the options do anything). I tried booting into recovery mode, but there it just hangs after a bunch of system messages. How can I run fsck properly?17:36
EriC^^!info devilspie | neyder_ or maybe ccsm17:37
ubottuneyder_ or maybe ccsm: devilspie (source: devilspie): find windows and perform actions on them. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.23-2 (vivid), package size 42 kB, installed size 322 kB17:37

daniel72-72Hi guys. Is there anyway to reset my router password. Not the wi-fi, the internal password so I can change its configurations17:38
daftykinsdaniel72-72: that is not even vaguely an ubuntu issue, try ##networking17:39
mcphailAndriusBartulis: just buy a calibrator. You get get a second-hand spyder2 for a couple of pounds/dollars from ebay as there are no drivers for modern Windows. Works a treat17:39
daniel72-72I'm asking because I know how to on windows nor on ubuntu17:39
daftykinsdaniel72-72: that doesn't make any sense. routers are accessed via web admins - that is platform agnostic17:40
neyder_EriC^^, reading ty17:40
daftykins(or telnet which also is)17:40
Picidaniel72-72: refer to your router's documentation17:43
AndriusBartulismcphail, ok I guess that's the only option then. Wanted something quick for the next week while the calibrator arrives (color balance is horrible)17:44
mcphailAndriusBartulis: spyder + dispcalgui is what I use17:44
AndriusBartulisWhich spider?17:44
AndriusBartulis1 or 2? or 317:44
mcphailAndriusBartulis: 2, iirc17:44
AndriusBartulismcphail, ok thanks17:44
mcphailAndriusBartulis: as far as I know, the others work as well17:45
mcphailAndriusBartulis: The spyder 2 needs the windows install disk so you can extract the firmware, but that process is simple17:45
AndriusBartulisDoes anyone know why ubuntu might have this weird password thing when on a fresh install the password will either work for login OR for sudo authentication, but not both, for example, when I just installed it, I set a password to something, then it didn't work with sudo or software centre, then I changed it with pkexec passwd and then it started working for sudo tasks but stopped working for login tasks. Any17:47
daftykinsAndriusBartulis: "set a password to something" = ?17:48
daftykinsi think you're performing non-standard reconfigurations and trashing the install.17:49
AndriusBartulisdaftykins, no, I literally installed ubuntu, and chose a password in the install wizard. Then, without doing anything else at all, it started doing that17:50
AndriusBartulisIts a completely fresh install. Tried reinstalling it twice.17:50
AndriusBartulisSomething to do with my disk image maybe? some hardware?17:50
AndriusBartulisMaybe ubuntu updates?17:50
AndriusBartulisIts weird17:50
daftykinsright but what's this "set a password to something" = ?17:51
daftykinsoh as in that was the installer step, ok17:51
daftykinsvery obscure language :P17:51
daftykinstry installing without updates maybe17:52
AndriusBartulishmm ok17:52
AndriusBartulisI did have the Install updates automatically checked, so maybe that messed something up.17:52
daftykinsis this 15.04 ?17:53
AndriusBartulisOk I know what you gonna say... use LTS :D17:53
daftykinsnope just curious where the quirk lies17:53
daftykinsmaybe you have newer hardware so LTS isn't quite so appropriate, so i wouldn't just say that17:53
AndriusBartulishmm... maybe it uses one key map before loggin in and another one after?17:54
AndriusBartulisdaftykins, its a lenovo thinkpad t410 so not that new17:54
daftykinsthat's possible depending on what region you're in17:55
oaulakhhow to install libusbx17:56

AndriusBartulisioria, Just default Unity fresh install17:57
lotuspsychjeoaulakh: did you try the newest version?17:57
AndriusBartulisI installed it on 3 pcs today and only this one has the problem, maybe some new update that just came out a few h ago or something...17:58

sokolldaftykins: close and reopen what?19:00
SCHAAP137arooni-mobile, http://www.webupd8.org/2014/01/enable-hardware-acceleration-in-chrome.html19:00
daftykinsthe same terminal you're logged into trying to perform that copy19:00
daftykinsoften you must log out and back in before group changes apply19:00
sokolldaftykins: ah, no, but I'm sudo'd as the user that's having the issue19:00
arooni-mobileSCHAAP137, followed that and its still showing gpu isnt being used19:00
sokolldaftykins: that's not the issue19:00
daftykinssudo? o019:00
daftykinsthe permissions angle isn't relevant if you're doing that19:01
sokolldaftykins: I am an admin, I have a user who is unable to copy a file from his home directory, to a team directory.19:01
daftykinssokoll: a bit of output in a pastebin would be handy19:01
beakyhow do people deploy ubuntu in production19:01
fwolfarooni-mobile: works on my t520 .. so there's no reason why it shouldnt work on your t420 ;)19:01
sokolldaftykins: cp: cannot create regular file {filename}: permission denied19:01
Saulo(away) not here.19:01
fwolfmaybe try SRWare Iron as an alternative, though19:01
daftykinssokoll: that's not helpful, "ls -al" of the destination, groups of the user etc etc. would be19:02
arooni-mobilefwolf, what am i doing wrong?19:02
sokolldaftykins: k, apologies, one sec19:02
fwolfarooni-mobile: what ubuntu install with what version of chrome?19:03
sokolldaftykins: destination permissions: drwxr-xr-x   3 www-data {groupname} 4.0K Aug  3 20:04 public_html19:03

sokolluser is in {groupname}19:03
daftykinssokoll: i mentioned a pastebin such as http://paste.ubuntu.com to avoid unreadability in channel19:04
daftykinssokoll: ah can already see your group doesn't have write perms then.19:04
SCHAAP137arooni-mobile, you could try adding this to the Chrome startup command: --disable-gpu-sandbox19:04
SCHAAP137it might forcibly enable some of the missing GPU acceleration settings19:04
sokolldaftykins: so it needs drwxrwxr-x?19:05
SCHAAP137but, on the other hand, Chrome might become unstable because of it19:05
daftykinssokoll: sudo chmod -R g+w /path/to/public_html (assuming you're ok with the whole path recursively being set)19:05
sokolldaftykins: that's fine :)19:05
arooni-mobileSCHAAP137, Software only. Hardware acceleration disabled19:05
SCHAAP137hmm, unfortunate19:06
yabbessorry to report back, guys.. im the one with the reboot grub issue (no shutdown via gui) ive tried adding all three acpi=force then reboot=bios and then reboot=pci in my /etc/default/grub but no positive result :/19:06
EriC^^yabbes: did you update-grub after adding them?19:07
muelliyabbes: hm. you need to regenerate your grub, I guess.19:07
yabbessometimes my syslog doesnt even give me any info when i try rebooting19:07

yabbesthen reboot . try. and another time19:07

GTFr0general question about network interfaces:  in systems with multiple NICs, how does ubuntu determine which NIC is eth0?19:07
GTFr0(this maybe more of a kernel question than specific to Ubuntu)19:08

GTFr0daftykins: thanks, I'll give that a try19:11
fwolfarooni-mobile: already dug into the thinkwikis? the German suggests there might be a throttling issue with later BIOS versions, which also decreases the "power of the integrated GPU"19:11
fwolfmy t520 is from an early batch, so it might still be using an older BIOS version19:12
ioriayabbes, try in    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX "acpi=force"19:13
yabbesi did, but i will again :P19:13
arooni-mobilefwolf, interesting ; i did upgrade my bios to latest version as i recently installed a new ssd and wanted it to work out of the box.  what a gip a decrease in gpu power for upgrading the bios :\19:13

noobsterHi all... I was wondering if there was a way to use Ubuntu 15.04 that boots into UEFI bios to chain boot an acer recovery partition? I have one in a boot loop because a client decided it was a good idea to install win10 without me. I need to get into the win8 factory default partition and run that tool. I have tried many recovery live CD like Hiren's but they will not boot in UEFI bios mode....19:27

EriC^^noobster: boot your os (ubuntu) and create a custom entry for the recovery partition19:39

GTFr0ok, rather stupid question:  any idea why I would be getting an IPv6 address for an interface even though I've disabled IPv6?19:40
GallomimiaGTFr0: my trip thru the bios was much more informative! if only i could find the package my ram came in :P19:40
reisionoobster: if you can get to the grub screen during bootup, you can point it at anything19:40
noobsterdaftykins: that worked, now I get a list of partitions... I guess I should start going through them to see if one will allow to recovery19:42
daftykinsnoobster: it'd be the largest i'm sure :) (besides the C: of course)19:43
EriC^^noobster: type ls -l , it should be a ntfs partition at the end most likely19:43
daftykinsnoobster: just a thought though, you said this user upgraded to 10 - you know you can reverse the process if they haven't already deleted the backup?19:43

daftykinsGTFr0: ##networking19:48

EriC^^noobster: you try to chainload (hda1,gpt2)/EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi i think19:49
akikGTFr0: you can use echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv619:49

jxfnoobster: That's my current bash_history. Not sure how that's going to get me the *default* .bash_profile.20:48
RevertToTypeso i've gotten the wpa_supplicant.conf file to read happily when i through in wpa_supplicant -B -Dwext -i wlan0 wpa_supplicant.conf but how do i get this to auto-connect on boot?20:48
Ben64jxf: cat /etc/skel/.profile20:48
EriC^^jxf: ubuntu doesn't have a .bash_profile by default, it does have a .profile though20:49
jxf@Ben64: Ah, awesome, thanks! and <3 EriC^^20:49
EriC^^noobster: boot the live usb for a sec20:49
OerHeksnoobster, so you end up with obtaining the win8 dvd legally, it can be done with a free download, so you might be able to use the restore option. or replace the whole thing.20:50
akikRevertToType: you can put the wlan configuration data into /etc/network/interfaces20:51
RevertToTypeit seems there... it has a pre-up do i need to kill the eth0 auto-up and all that lines?20:51
RevertToTypeis it just putting preference to eth0 over my wlan0 devices or does it cycle?20:52
akikRevertToType: i've used pre-up in interfaces to bring up wifi nic20:52
akikRevertToType: i mean to run wpa_supplicant20:52
RevertToTypedoes /etc/network/interfaces just read the first interface though (well first after l0)?20:53
akikRevertToType: what do you mean with preference?20:53
EriC^^noobster: when you boot the live usb, let me know20:53
RevertToTypeor will it read all the way down20:53
akikRevertToType: it's all the way down :)20:53
RevertToTypehrm no reason why it shouldn't already be working then20:53
akikRevertToType: it's the auto stanza20:53
RevertToTypeI can just put autoup dhcp iface wlan0 and the next line being the wpa_supplicant command yes?20:53
akikRevertToType: it's auto wlan0 on one line20:54
akikRevertToType: then iface wlan0 inet dhcp on another20:55
sharkasdfi just built my first pc and now im trying to update my mobo firmware using 'dos'. Do i just unzip the contents and put it on a usb and reboot?20:55
RevertToType@ akik it's line 1: auto wlan0   line 2: iface wlan0 inet dhcp  line 3: pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -i wlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf20:56
RevertToTypeand it's totally not connecting automatically20:56
daftykinssharkasdf: that's not ubuntu support, you only need to update if you're experiencing problems.20:56
akikRevertToType: RevertToType i dunno if you need the -D wext option, i had that20:56
daftykinssharkasdf: most boards update direct from flash drives these days20:56
noobsterBashing-om: yea not sure, while the bios is in UEFI mode with secure boot off I can get to that exact screen of kernal boot off of the live cd, press "c" and do ls -lah to see all the partitions, I see a NTFS part (hd1,gpt1) with files in it like Recovery, Factory, OEM, etc but no EFI/Boot/bootx64 files. So my thinking was that the recovery partition needs to have the bios set to Legacy Mode...20:57
noobster...to chainload (hd1,0)+1 but I can not see the kernel selections of grub in Legacy mode, it goes directly to language select.20:57
sharkasdfi am experiencing problems. im getting a cpu fan error,  apparently updating will fix that20:57
akikRevertToType: and also if you should disable networkmanager, don't know, maybe?20:57
daftykinssharkasdf: sure you didn't just plug the fan onto the wrong motherboard header? :)20:57
RevertToTypei mean maybe/maybe not if i put that in bash it connects, but it seems network/interfaces isn't doing anything20:57
RevertToTypelike it's def not firing up at least that :/20:57
EriC^^noobster: if it uses gpt it mostly is uefi20:57

m8hallo :-)21:19
=== m8 is now known as Guest99901
iNshello there. feeling kinda ashamed in here since goin thru with simple pptp connection (dont ask why ppt, its for test/benches purposes for my MA thesis ;)) is something i didnt expect to have problem with, but yea, the simplest configuration and thats what i end up with in logs http://paste.ubuntu.com/12202197/21:19
noobsterok so I need to back that up and google restoring a wim file then correct?21:19
aoteadaftykins: Great works like a charm! thanks21:19
iNsso the question would be: has anyone managed to get it working lul?21:22
EriC^^noobster: no, well you're options is to try to use grub to boot the recovery21:22
EriC^^but it might not work if the partitions have been altered, so if you get a recovery usb that has a command prompt (you need dism) you can extract the image21:23
daftykinsiNs: what's the host for this PPTP?21:23
BerryHello, I was wondering if anyone could help with a small, yet very troublesome issue I've been having. See, for some reason, no matter which flash drive I put in to my 14.04 Ubuntu desktop (64 bit), I don't have permissions to read it.21:23
iNsdaftykins, what do you mean exactly?21:24
daftykinsBerry: look at "dmesg | tail" when plugging one in, and also "mount" output (throw both in a pastebin)21:24
daftykinsiNs: OS + server software configured for this21:24
EriC^^noobster: i was thinking if you could just extract it, as you can open the .wim in ubuntu if you open it with archive viewer but dism uses indexes (the image has 3-4 indexes like index1 is a less bloated install etc.) so i dont think it would be that easy to use ubuntu to extract the image21:24
iNsits 14.04 with default pptp daemon ;)21:24
iNsit is ubuntu channel after all isnt it :P21:24
daftykinsiNs: you'd be surprised, we get queries about peoples dishwashers on the fritz but they run ubuntu so it's ok.21:25
EriC^^noobster: try to see ls /mnt first, you need to chainload the EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi file i think, if that works you might be able to restore as usual using the recovery21:25
daftykinsiNs: #ubuntu-server might be more useful on the off chance21:26
iNsdaftykins, :D which is why im all dafuq in here. i dont even neeed masquerading for now and all, i just need to server-client connection going on21:26

gzcwnki tried editing interfaces but its being ignored21:28
daftykinsBerry: ls -al /media/21:28
akikgzcwnk: nmcli but you could take a look at using dns-nameservers in /etc/network/interfaces21:29

gzcwnkalso resolvconf/ tail21:31
fishcookeri have keyauth on sshd config enabled21:31
gzcwnkwell if it doesnt work according to docs21:31
EriC^^noobster: looks like you can extract wim files in ubuntu http://sourceforge.net/projects/wimlib/21:31
tgm4883gzcwnk: this is ubuntu server? Can you pastebin your config?21:31
gzcwnkits a graylog ova21:32
EriC^^noobster: if you do extract it, you'll want to extract the ESP.wim to that fat32 partition you have right now too, that's what boots windows21:32
noobsterok I will look and mount all the partitions in o ro and let you know all the ones that have a efi/boot folder brb21:32
tgm4883gzcwnk: maybe  you should tell the graylog people to stop futzing with the underlying OS?21:32
EriC^^noobster: the EFI/Boot should be in the same recovery partition you have mounted right now21:33
gzcwnktgm well i think its more to do with networkmanager21:33
tgm4883gzcwnk: maybe  you should tell the graylog people to stop futzing with network manager?21:33
daftykinsBerry: did you pastebin it?21:34
gzcwnkif the setup isnt alterable its not graylog's issue I suspect21:34
Berrydaftykins: Yes, I pasted it to you. http://pastebin.com/V3ZFXwQz21:34
daftykinsBerry: ok and "ls -al /media/berry/" ?21:34
Berrydaftykins: http://pastebin.com/GnvAGA7V21:35
daftykinswow that's... interesting21:35
daftykinsBerry: and prefix sudo to the last command?21:36
tgm4883gzcwnk: so you're telling me that graylog released an OVA that uses ubuntu as it's base, the ubuntu documents that you've referenced don't work for you, and you DON'T think that is graylogs fault?21:36
noobstersda2 is the only partition with a EFI folder... also has BOOTSECT.BAK21:37
tgm4883gzcwnk: you're right, it's far more likely that ubuntu documentation is broken21:37
gzcwnktgm well there are sevral possibilities starting with me21:37
gzcwnkive used google and several sites21:37
Berrydaftykins: It should be noted that when I boot up, the computer tries to mount three things. I messed around with my second hard drive, trying to get ubuntu installed on it, but it wasn't met with success. http://pastebin.com/R0hdvSpA21:37
gzcwnkso its possible its graylog but then the Q is why21:38
tgm4883gzcwnk: have you tried #graylog21:38
backsupxgzcwnk: Google it21:38
tgm4883backsupx: don't. That isn't helpful21:38
gzcwnkmost channels in here are asleep at this time21:38
daftykinsBerry: did that include playing with /etc/fstab ?21:38
gzcwnkits dead21:38
tgm4883gzcwnk: their channel being dead makes this a Ubuntu issue how?21:38
Berrydaftykins: No, just messing around with the partitions on it21:38
Berrydaftykins: Through software, not through the console21:39
unkn-errorhello... I need some help changing the default user shell from bash to fish (when I open the terminal, I wish to start without needing to type "fish") |cshs -s is not working http://pastebin.com/vrmE9wE321:39
gzcwnktgm im looking at th OS and trying to see what I am doing wrong21:39
tgm4883gzcwnk: and my point is that graylog devs futzed enough with it that it should no longer be considered Ubuntu21:39
daftykinsBerry: well that one is going to require someone with more experience than me perhaps, you can see udisks is auto mounting the drive yet despite you owning it it requires sudo to even list the mountpoint - which is bad21:39
noobsterEriC^^: it is not... it is located in sda2 but the image is in sda621:40
gzcwnkoh i c21:40
noobstersda2 is also fat3221:40
noobstersda6 is NTFS21:40
EriC^^noobster: that's odd, i have an EFI dir in the recovery partition which i think is what it uses to boot the recovery process, i also have an ESP.wim which is the efi partition for the install21:40
tgm4883gzcwnk: however, at this point. It sounds like they've completely broken/disabled resolvconf, so you should be able to just put the lines directly in /etc/resolv.conf21:41
ubottuPor favor, use #ubuntu-br para ajuda em português. Para entrar no canal por favor faça "/join #ubuntu-br " sem as aspas. Para a comunidade local portuguêsa, use #ubuntu-pt. Obrigada.21:41
Berrydaftykins: I mean, I could just reinstall ubuntu if needed21:41
EriC^^noobster: maybe the ESP.wim is in the install.wim in yours, as it uses indexes, maybe it's like index1 is the ESP for instance21:41
gzcwnktgm that's what I was thinking until u told me they'd changed things21:42
daftykinsBerry: bit extreme. try "sudo chmod -R 755 /media/berry/"21:42
EriC^^noobster: try that wimlib package, if you can view the contents of install.wim you can just extract them to the big NTFS, and extract the ESP to the fat32 one and reboot21:42
Berrydaftykins: Wow, why didn't I even think to try that21:43
daftykinsBerry: any result though?21:44
gzcwnknm is overriding resolv.conf21:44
Berrydaftykins: It 100% worked21:44
gzcwnkso that didnt work21:44
Berrydaftykins: I feel like an idiot now ._.21:44
owen1i have a script file that starts with #!bin/sh when i run it i see: bash: ./foo: bin/sh: bad interpreter: No such file or directory21:44
owen1any ideas?21:44
daftykinsgzcwnk: still not Ubuntu- but resolvconf will fight resolv.conf edits.21:44
daftykinsgzcwnk: i personally purge it, reboot, then hardcode DNS on all my server VMs.21:44
gzcwnkdaftykins yes21:44
daftykinsyes what?21:45
EriC^^noobster: you could try setting the recovery partition with the boot flag, and try booting in legacy mode, it might boot it, but you'd install windows in legacy mode i think21:45
gzcwnkim sort of using this as a learning point21:45
daftykinsBerry: cool - to be honest i find it odd that lacking group perms stopped you handling it21:45
gzcwnknot blindly doing that21:45
daftykinsgzcwnk: well don't learn on unstable junk :)21:45
gzcwnki have not used debian/ubuntu much for years21:45

coscdaftykins: I put every setting on "never" on the power save settings. No luck.21:50

coscVMWare Player 6.0.7. Linux ubuntu 3.16.0-45-generic #60~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP21:51
daftykinsthat's a kernel not a version21:52
daftykinsah it was hiding at the end :D21:52
daftykinshrmm 3.16 comes from a deprecated distro now21:52
daftykinsrelease version, not distro21:52
daftykinscosc: we're also up to 14.04.3 so your install is out of date to my mind21:53
daftykinscosc: boot a 14.04.3 download and see how it fairs in the live session21:53
daftykinsbut you get what you pay for with vmware player ;)21:53
staples23it seems most proprietary products concern themselves more with making things as easy and fast as they can for their customers21:53
coscdaftykins: Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS21:53
staples23i think this sort of predicting what people want before they even want it thing, is   appealing to a lot of people, and why most probably dont use open source products as much, i mean when windows monitors the amount of time i spend in certain folders etc. to order them accordingly & also scans my offline txt/doc files to adjust my searches on bing, it makes a lot of my research faster and more productive21:53
staples23for example when im buying stuff on amazon or youtube whatever all the algorithms designed to reccomend me stuff21:54
staples23a lot of it ends up being helpful21:54
staples23and if its not i just dont click/buy or use it21:54

Leverquincuz everyone talk that unity is bad?>21:55
k2everest_Everyonw who?21:56
coscdaftykins, 14.0.3 LTS is what lsb_release shows21:56
daftykinscosc: ok, still an out of date install that's been upgraded over time i suspect21:57
Leverquinall i want is OS who is stable, can use few addons like notes on desktop.clock calendar. i just can't use this win 7 anymore. everytime i use skype webcam or dota2 i just got blue screen21:57
k2everest_DOnt have better or worse, have what work for your needs21:57
k2everest_Leverquin start with ubuntu, do u know why?21:58
Leverquinno? please tell me21:58
k2everest_Because everybody is using ubuntu, u can check this room is most fully in IRC, and u will get free and nice support for an opensource software, or u think that u will found easy help, now is the time to DIY21:59
soreauHi, is there a way to stop xscreensaver from running when a fullscreen window exists?21:59
Leverquinok. then shall i get Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS or Ubuntu 15.0422:00
drkjstrsoreau, check http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/96127/disable-xscreensaver-when-program-is-running22:01
tuchoIs anyone there?22:01
k2everest_I am using buntu 14.04 LTS22:01
tuchoCool, I'm using 15.0422:01
daftykinstucho: yes, ask away if you have a support question22:01
tuchoI have no support questions at the moment22:02
EriC^^Leverquin: i'd recommend 14.0422:02
tuchoI just came to see what's up22:02
soreaudrkjstr: thanks, is that installed by default on say 14.04?22:02
EriC^^i'm using it as well, it's stable and nice22:02
rorytyan: come chat in #ubuntu-offtopic :)22:02
tuchoI've just recently gotten into Linux22:02
k2everest_I dont recommend 15.04 because I never used it, but look like it is fine and stable22:02
tuchoIt's fine to me22:02
tuchoI've had no troubles, just installed it a few days ago22:02
roryyeah, "I don't recommend" doesn't mean "I recommend not using"22:03
tuchoI see22:03
roryjust means "I'm not able to personally recommend"22:03
drkjstrsoreau, I'm pretty sure it is not.  It might not be in the respository either.22:04
roryFWIW I use 15.04 (Ubuntu Mate) on my work laptop since April and it's been solid as a rock.22:04
Leverquinok ok so 14.04 . thanks. well i would like to try mint and ubutu too. but when i check on mint there is like KDE/cim,MATE just can't choose22:04
roryLeverquin: There's Kubuntu, Xubuntu, et al for Ubuntu too, so the choice is there for both Ubuntu and Mint22:04
Leverquinrory you want to say that ubuntu 14.04 is mate not unity?22:04
roryLeverquin: I mean to say I'm using a version of Ubuntu called "Ubuntu Mate", which uses Mate instead of Unity22:05
LeverquinJesus. now i will never choice linux cuz i can't choice witch one to take22:05
roryLeverquin: Might as well just pick one at random then. Probably default Ubuntu (unity)22:05
drkjstrLeverquin, Mate is a fork of the old Gnome2.22:06
roryLeverquin: Mostly because the community support is there for default Ubuntu, and some people in this channel won't help you if they figure out you're on K/X/L/buntu22:06
Leverquinjesus. and maria! so much k x l22:06
roryLeverquin: You can also install multiple desktop environments on the same system, and choose which one every login22:06
Leverquini actually tried lubuntu on old machina22:06
soreaudrkjstr: I wrote a script to do it with wmctrl but it seems like this would be in code.. somewhere by default. I think it's up to each app to disable/re-enable it if they care to but never mess with it because it's not just a single function call22:06
roryLeverquin: So it's not like you HAVE to tie yourself into using a particular one22:06
roryLeverquin: You can try them all out and then uninstall the ones you don't like.22:07
Leverquinlinux looks like nice guy.22:07
roryLeverquin: Yes. The kubuntu-desktop, xubuntu-desktop etc packages will grab all the packages needed22:07
roryLeverquin: IMO just install standard Ubuntu, familiarise yourself with it, and then install others if you get bored22:08
Leverquinok i will download ubunty 14.04 and keep it in folder with all mint versions :S till i remove this devil and clean all stuff from pc :@22:08
Leverquinbtw rory how to send private messages XD22:08

drkjstrsoreau, I agree, but I don't see it as an option in the manual.22:09
NikeshHow can I check if the iso of 15.04 I have is the latest?22:11
tgm4883!md5 | Nikesh22:11
ubottuNikesh: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows22:11
bekksNikesh: There is only one 15.04 iso.22:11
NikeshOh OK :D22:12
ArmadillosNikesh: Doesn't really matter.  Once you install the software, it will do a software update check, and you'll get the latest updates.22:12
NikeshWow, Ubuntu Phone in India!22:12
drkjstrNikesh, you'll just have to either check the install updates option during installation, or just do a "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade" after the installation.22:12
NikeshThat's so exciting22:12
Nikeshtgm4883 bekks Armadillos drkjstr Thank you all! :)22:13
noobsterEriC^^: I will try again after kid goes to bed. 15.04 doesnt have something correct on the live cd about libxml and there is not a repo with wimlib in it for 15.04. I am burning 14.04 that has a repo with dependance so it might be easier to do on that.22:16
noobsterThanks everyone for your help22:17
siloxidI installed ubuntu 15.04 from usb stick.  grub installation failed and I had to install lilo.  now it drops into busybox stating that it can't find /dev/sdb1 - which is true, lilo should have been set up pointing to /dev/sda1.  how do I reconfigure lilo?22:19
wileeesiloxid, install again correctly22:20
siloxidI never told lilo which device to point to - it will do the same thing again and that isn't an option22:21
wileeesiloxid, Install ubuntu again, lilo should auto see it, two boot app failures is not a good sign22:21
daftykinssiloxid: +1 to wileee - going off GRUB is a sign of other issues, LILO is not the answer22:22
ChangaHi, I cannot control my laptop's screen brightness from my keyboard shortcuts. the gui appears but the brightness doesnt change22:28
ChangaI'm using Acer Timeline-X I don't know what to try. I tried installing backlightx and creating 20-intel.conf file22:28
daftykinsChanga: tried any of the stuff that refers to adding kernel boot parameters like "acpibacklight=" ?22:29
ChangaI should, saw that somewhere22:29

MrJonesis there some graphical partitioning tool that supports LUKS and resizing?22:33
MrJonesgparted doesn't seem to support LUKS, gnome disks doesn't seem to offer any option to resize22:33
daftykinsMrJones: fwiw i probably wouldn't trust it anyway, i'd backup + recreate22:34
Leverquini don't see why ubunty doesn't come with flash, java codescs vlc gimp like mint :(22:34
daftykinsLeverquin: good reasons22:34
MrJonesdaftykins: trust in what way? I'm on a live system right now, it's not like this is an infected windows machine or anything..22:34
MrJonesor the live ubuntu would store my encryption pw forever22:35
daftykinsMrJones: well i assume you care about your data.22:35
daftykinsi think you grabbed the wrong end of the stick there22:35
MrJones"how can I resize my partition?" - "i think you grabbed the wrong end of the stick here"22:35
MrJonesjesus it's 201522:35
MrJonesand yes I do have backups22:35
MrJonesnow is there a capable graphical tool or not/22:36
MrJonesI can go the command line way but I just rather wouldn't22:36
daftykinsthat is an extremely poor attitude.22:36
MrJonesI think fedora's anaconda actually supports all of this, but sadly I'm on an ubuntu live disk22:36
daftykinswell you're free to go make one.22:36
MrJoneswhat is your problem?22:36
MrJonesI just asked very regularly if there is such a tool22:36
MrJonesI'm not asking you to magically make one ..22:37
daftykinsright and i pointed out a friendly warning and you're flying off the handle22:37
MrJoneswarning to trust no graphical tools to ever resize something even if I have a full back?22:37
Didge-Heya folks, Does Ubuntu have a Mobile Devices based IRC channel?22:40

Didge-Niceone! cheers dude :D22:42
daftykinsnp :)22:42
Didge-That's a nice feature mate ;) Nice to meet you btw :D22:43
MrJonesgnome disks doesn't have a hidden resize button somewhere does it? so far I can only spot delete and recreate and such22:46
MrJonesit seems pretty capable otherwise but oddly enough doesn't seem to have a resize functionality..22:46

MrJonesdaftykins: fwiw, it appears blivet has just had lots of git commits activity to implement luks resizing as recent as june. doesn't really look like they're done tho.. and strangely gnome disks doesn't do resizing?23:04
MrJonesso I guess at this point no tool supports it23:04
MrJonesotherwise I'd give blivet-gui a try, but I guess I'm a year too early ;(23:04
daftykinsah you calmed down, cool.23:05
MrJonesdaftykins: more like, I googled a bit myself since nobody here had a good idea23:06
MrJonesI'm still not sure if gnome disks really has no resize or if I'm just missing it23:07
daftykinsi wouldn't even try to use that one23:07

AlternativElitehi all, I recently installed thightvncserver and all works well. but I would like to see the log files to see who logged in. search with google, but no luck23:12
daftykinsthight or tight?23:12
AlternativElitesorry, tight of course23:12
daftykinsAlternativElite: the config files may speak of a log file path, if not /var/log somewhere23:12
AlternativElitedaftykins, thanks, I'll have a look23:13
AlternativElitedaftykins, I found the .log file of vnc server. It turned out that there were many authentication failures from an IP from China. LOL;) seems I need to make a harder to crack password...23:24
daftykinsoops :)23:24
daftykinsAlternativElite: non-standard port numbers are always handy too, though not a true form of security - they can cut down on portscan based bots like those23:24
daftykinsso 5900 i think it is for VNC, maybe change to something in the tens of thousands23:25
AlternativElitedaftykins, I will do that. Definately tomorrow, here it's already 1:25 AM...but I will stop vnc-server until some changes are made.:)23:26

daftykinsxubuntu666: when you say hardware, what items do you mean? graphics cards or pretty much anything?23:45
TJ-xubuntu666: I generally install the LTS + the updated Hardware Enablement kernels to the USB device, and boot each PC from that... you have all the tools and can keep it updated without jumping through hoops23:46

xubuntu666TJ-, so an install is preferable?23:46
Danskmand...Is broken or not fully installed....23:47
TJ-xubuntu666: I find it so... you have all the benefits of package upgrades, can install additional packages with tooling, without needing to mess about with a persistent Live image23:48
daftykinsDanskmand: "dpkg -l | grep mysql" in a http://paste.ubuntu.com please23:48

xubuntu666no? I didn't go in depth, but I just read about many more writes on install compared to live23:50

gabmushello everyone, I have a little question: I made an app with python and gtk (using glade) and I wanted to package it for some distros. but then I tought: I run this app just by running the executable python file, that loads the .glade file real time. where am I supposed to put those files in my fs?23:50
Danskmanddaftykins: Purging:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/12202911/23:52

xubuntu666putolov, if your caps lock light is flashing, you have a kernel panic. Probably faulty hardware or a loose connection. Use power button. If you were answering the second question, ignorre all that23:59
