Sohail-AhmedIs it possible that a calling to program XYZ by /usr/bin/XYZ **.py should be treated as /usr/local/bin/XYZ **.py. I heard some thing about symbolic links in ubuntu, but am confused00:13
Gaming4JCSohail-Ahmed, you can check for a symbolic link by using "file" /blah/that/might/be/link00:14
Gaming4JCsometimes helps.00:14
Sohail-AhmedGaming4JC: But what does symbolic links do??00:15
Sohail-AhmedGaming4JC: same as what I am trying to do??00:15
Gaming4JCSohail-Ahmed, it is a shortcut - so you can use it as a reference to point to another file.00:15

fsir4is it possible to backup a linux os on a vmware and restore it on a NON-Vmware (regular machine)?00:38
LightweighOS2I've downloaded most every desktop environment to test them, and afterwards I deleted the ones I didn't like as much... Except now there's a problem. When I boot up, it says kubuntu. My login manager is the one lxde uses, and when I'm logging it it show's the xfce symbol, and then when I'm on my account it loads unity. It's a weird mix of all the desktop environments.00:40
Jordan_Ufsir4: What version of Ubuntu are you using in the guest?00:41
wileeeLightweighOS2, what is the final de you're using?00:42
LightweighOS2Right now I have Ubuntu selected, however it's still a weird mix of ones that I've uninstalled, or at least seemingly uninstalled.00:42
Jordan_Ufsir4: Yes it's possible, but not particularly easy. Do you have a hard drive with nothing currently on it that you plan to use for this purpose? Have you installed VMware's guest additions? Is the physical machine UEFI or BIOS based?00:42
fsir4Nah I have one HD, the purpose for using VMWARE for me was to switch from windows to ubuntu within a click00:43
fsir4I mean, I could use a KVM switch00:43
fsir4with some mini pc wunning ubuntu, but not sure if it would be fast00:43
wileeeLightweighOS2, not knowing what is left there, heh, you can reload the splash needed. https://askubuntu.com/questions/12394/getting-back-ubuntus-default-boot-splash00:44
Demon_Jesterhey can someone help me out? I am trying to achieve reverse ssh proxy, I did it long ago, and I am being unsuccessful right now.00:44
fsir4Jordan_U: actually I have an empty external HD00:44
pitwalkerfsir4: i have only infos about VirtualBox, if you use the VHD format virtual disk you can "dd" back to physical disk, when you import you must create the tailer section manually00:44
LightweighOS2wileee: Even though I uninstalled them, there's still parts of the uninstalled desktop environments on my machine. How do I uninstall everything associated with it?00:45
fsir4Would it possible to install ubunto on the external hd and run it in vmware?00:45
Jordan_Ufsir4: Yes.00:45
wileeeLightweighOS2, Try running sudo apt-get autoremove ; sudo apt-get auto-clean00:45
usafbeachfsir4: VMs are just a bunch of files.  They can be run from anywhere00:45
wileeeLightweighOS2, sorry sudo apt-get autoclean00:46
fsir4yes, only problem is that they will be on the windows parittion00:46
fsir4rather dangerous00:46
usafbeachWhy dangerous?00:47
LightweighOS2wileee: Thanks, I'll try that.00:47
wileeeLightweighOS2, generall a purge of the desktop and a autoremove gets most stuff, not the best way in the end but do-able, I would save the installlist myself and use them to remove.00:48

LightweighOS2I just booted up after I did what you recommended and I still have a mix of 3 or 4 different desktop environments that I uninstalled.01:14

Guest45913drkjstr: I think I should type something like this in: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mint upstream04:48
drkjstrDevslish: I'm not terribly familiar with it myself, but I think you would need to change it in the init.d if it auto starts.04:48

phunyguysorry about that, guys.  Let's continue with support.  :)04:49
DevslishDo any of you know how to run a service as a specific user04:50

tgm4883Guest45913: where are you getting that from?04:52
tgm4883Devslish: what service?04:52
DevslishIt's emby04:52
DevslishIt's a media server04:53
tgm4883Devslish: how do you normally start it?04:53

DevslishFor some reason I can't add my USB drive as a media source04:53
DevslishI do sudo service emby server start04:53
DevslishWhen I do service emby server status it appears that it's running as user emby04:54
drkjstrGuest45913: This link describes it, but I don't think you can add it to Ubuntu.  Because I don't think it is a public repository. It doesn't seem that usb-imagewriter has a PPA.04:55
tgm4883Devslish: what user do you want to run it as?04:55
DevslishMy account04:55
tgm4883Guest45913: what you're trying to do is unsupportable04:55
bischDevslish, maybe you just need to give user emby some more permissions?04:55

drkjstrGuest45913: What the end goal you are trying to accomplish by using usb-imagewriter?04:56
treeprogramthe problem now is that the Unity Launcher covers the icons that sit on the left side of the desktop04:56
DevslishEvery time I do it logs me out04:57

LambdaComplexGuest45913: Are you trying to make a live cd or usb?05:15
LambdaComplexUSB, I see. Have you tried dd?05:15
Guest45913LambdaComplex: I'm trying to make a usb.05:15
drkjstrGuest45913: Does it shutdown correctly? Those lines you are seeing is the system trying to stop certain processes an such.05:16
kims_hy guys, what are you talking about?05:16
Guest45913LambdaComplex: I have looked at what I need to do to complete it, and I can see very quickly that I won't be able to figure it out as I'm bad at using the terminal, and lack any understanding of it.05:16
LambdaComplexGuest45913: Oh, and also use md5sum to verify your .iso is good05:16
LambdaComplexGuest45913: Using dd is literally only one line05:17
LambdaComplex`dd if="/path/to/file.iso" of="/dev/sdwhatever"05:17
Guest45913LamdbaComplex: If you told me how it worked, I could do it.05:17
allstarsnorks2Hi guys. How do I change the defauly plymouth theme for my system (14.04)?05:18
drkjstrIt was tutorialed in the last link I sent you.05:18
LambdaComplexQuotes are optional for that btw05:18
Guest45913LambdaComplex: funny thing is that I don't understand that one line. I don't know what the /dev/sdwhatever part does.05:18
Guest45913LambdaComplex I understand that I need to type the path to the file, I've done that before.05:19
LambdaComplexGuest45913: The simple version of what dd does is copies something and writes it, bit by bit, to something else. if is the input file and of is the output file. In this case, our input file is a disk image (in .iso format) and our output file is a block device (in /dev/sdx form).05:19
LambdaComplexSo, the usb is going to be a block device. You should be able to find which one with the `lsblk` command05:20
kims_hi skype05:21
LambdaComplexIt's very important you get the command right. Getting it wrong will potentially delete all your data.05:21
skype_jimxlhswho are you ?05:21
Guest45913LambdaComplex: I found out that my flashdrive is in /media/owner/9DF2-6F5705:22
skype_jimxlhsfrom where ?05:22
LambdaComplexGuest45913: That's where it's mounted. We need the actual block device.05:22
kims_sorry, i can't say that skype..05:23
LambdaComplexIt'll be in the form /dev/sdx05:23
drkjstrGuest45913: Like LambdaComplex stated, in a terminal, type: lsblk05:23
Guest45913There's Name, Maj:min, Rm, Ro, Type, and Mountpoint05:23

kims_guys, is that okay if i remove unity DE from ubuntu? i am using xfce4 right now05:25
LambdaComplexkims_: Why wouldn't it be?05:25

ubottuskype_jimxlhs: Please don't spam05:26
drkjstrLambdaComplex: Have you tried using the pastbinit package? It works similarly.05:26
kims_don't know, i just dont really like unity05:26
allstarsnorks2How do I change my Plymouth theme in Xubuntu 14.04?05:26
cfhowlettkims_, its okay but I wouldn't.  unity is tightly integrated.  just don't use it.05:26
LambdaComplexdrkjstr: Nope. I just like sprunge because the instructions are right on the front page :P05:27
Guest45913LambdaComplex: bash: http://sprunge.us/KcWd: No such file or directory05:27
LambdaComplexNot quite sure what happened but removing that colon on the end fixes it05:27
drkjstrCool. I didn't know about it until I started coming in here. It would be used like: lsblk | pastebinit05:28
LambdaComplexGuest45913: So, ~700GB hard drive and 16 GB usb drive?05:28
Guest45913LambdaComplex: haha, no it worked. Open the link.05:28
LambdaComplexdrkjstr: As in, pastebin.com?05:28
Guest45913LambdaComplex: Yes, it's 16 GB05:28
LambdaComplexGuest45913: Alright, so you'll do `dd if=whatever.iso of=/dev/sdb`05:29
LambdaComplexOf course you really should check the md5sum05:29
LambdaComplexWhich is as simple as `md5sum file`05:29
LambdaComplex"file" of course being your iso in this case05:30
drkjstrLambdaComplex: It uses paste.ubuntu.com05:30
LambdaComplexWhat the md5sum command does is runs whatever you give it through some fancy math formulas and then outputs a really crazy string of numbers and letters. But that crazy string lets you verify that the file is what it's supposed to be05:31
LambdaComplexBecause if there were an error in the file, it'd give you the wrong string05:31

Guest45913Lambdacomplex: Including the grave symbol looking like '05:36

Guest45913LambdaComplex: Haha, right ;)05:37
LambdaComplexGuest45913: ctrl+c will get you out of that05:37
LambdaComplexAnd then run md5sum before you dd!05:37

LambdaComplexAnd get rid of the grave before you dd05:38
LambdaComplexmd5sum openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso05:38
Guest45913LambdaComplex: md5sum: openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso: Is a directory05:39
Guest45913LambdaComplex: I wonder what that means.05:39
drkjstrThe MD% sum you need is: 350b8cb014a4e342cc9a7cc9df891b99  openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso05:40
LambdaComplexGuest45913: file openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso05:40
LambdaComplexRun that. Because I'm confused now O.o05:40
LambdaComplexThe file command just tells you the filetype05:40
LambdaComplexWhich...should not be directory05:40
Guest45913LambdaComplex: file openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso05:41
Guest45913openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso: directory05:41
LambdaComplexWell, allons-y then! cd into it and see what happens :P05:41
LambdaComplexAnd then ls -A05:41
Guest45913LambdaComplex: No command 'md5sum:' found05:41
=== silas is now known as Guest80602
LambdaComplexDoes Ubuntu not have md5sum by default?05:42
drkjstrLambdaComplex: I just did it, and it does05:42
Guest45913LambdaComplex: Oh, so if it's a directory then you can cd into it!05:42
LambdaComplexGuest45913: Of course! cd = change directory05:42
Guest45913Lambdacomplex: It said: openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso05:43
Guest45913 when I typed in ls -A05:43
LambdaComplexAh, okay. So you had a folder named after the iso file05:43
LambdaComplexRun file on that one05:43
Guest45913LambdaComplex: My usb is flashing, so it's reading/writing data.05:44
LambdaComplexDid you run dd? O.o05:45
Guest45913LambdaCompled: I did, haha. Is there a way to ask terminal the arguments for dd?05:45
LambdaComplexNot quite sure I understand what you're asking05:45
LambdaComplexLike, a list of possible arguments?05:45
Guest45913Yes like with the ls -A the -A part is the argument05:46
LambdaComplexman dd05:46
LambdaComplexTrust me, manpages are your new best friends05:46
drkjstror dd --help05:46
=== max12345 is now known as Guest84853
LambdaComplexOr that05:46
Guest45913Is there a website that lists every terminal command?05:46
LambdaComplexWell....you could do "ls /bin"05:46
=== Guest84853 is now known as max12345
LambdaComplexThat'd list every binary you have on your system05:47
LambdaComplexBut "every terminal command" would be a very, very, very, VERY long list05:47
Guest45913LambdaComplex: DD is on there!05:47
Guest45913The ls /bin list I mean.05:48
LambdaComplexNo, it isn't05:48
LambdaComplexdd is though05:48
Guest45913yeah, dd05:48
LambdaComplex*nix is case-sensitive05:48
LambdaComplexSo, you ran dd if=openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdb05:48
Guest45913I did.05:48
LambdaComplexWell, I still want you to run md5sum after that finishes :P05:48
Guest45913I will, might have to find a way to get the md5sum command.05:49
LambdaComplexAlso, drkjstr did mention --help, but not everything has an output for --help. And for the ones that do, the manpage will be much more in-depth05:49
LambdaComplexAnd...you really should have md5sum05:49
Guest45913I can type clear in the terminal, however it doesn't show up in ls /bin05:50
drkjstr^-- --help is usually just an brief help and list of options.05:50
LambdaComplexdrkjstr: Unfortunately SOME things have --help but not a manpage >.>05:50
LambdaComplexadb comes to mind for that05:51
LambdaComplexLuckily its --help is rather verbose05:51
Guest45913LambdaComplex: I'm far behind on using terminal, but I'll always remimber ls /bin05:52
Guest45913And man and --help05:52
drkjstrclear is located in /usr/bin05:52
LambdaComplexGuest45913: If you'd like, I can name some basic terminal commands that you'll want to know05:52
drkjstrdo: which clear05:52
LambdaComplexdrkjstr: I figured they'd be symlinked :P05:52
LambdaComplexAlso, reset is more useful than clear imo05:53
Guest45913LambdaComplex: How did you get so good at terminal?05:54
LambdaComplexGuest45913: By using it :P05:54
ObrienDaveGuest45913, http://ss64.com/05:54
Guest45913LambdaComplex: Sure, but if I didn't know about ls /bin I would have never figured out the different commands I could use.05:54
ObrienDaveGuest45913, http://ss64.com/bash05:54
LambdaComplexLemme see... cd and ls are both important. ls -l puts things in a list (and also displays permissions, among other things). ls -A includes "hidden" files (which start with a .)05:55
LambdaComplexnano is a terminal text editor that's good for quickly editing files05:55
drkjstrI'm out. Have a good one.05:55
LambdaComplexpwd gives you your current directory (but generally you'll have that in your shell prompt)05:55
LambdaComplexcat gives you the contents of a file05:56
LambdaComplexless is similar to cat but a bit nicer05:56
LambdaComplex(it lets you scroll)05:57
LambdaComplexOoh, grep is useful05:57
blunderbrusHey, how's everybody doing?05:57
LambdaComplexGuest45913: ls -l /bin | grep nano05:57
LambdaComplexTry that for fun05:57
Guest45913-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  192016 Jul 16  2014 nano05:58
Guest45913lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root       4 Sep  4 21:50 rnano -> nano05:58
LambdaComplexSo, what grep just did was take all the output of "ls -l /bin" and just give you the lines containing the phrase "nano"05:58
Guest45913LambdaComplex: That's nice. When I try to open text files with millions of characters it always crashes.05:59
LambdaComplexGuest45913: Are they actually text files? O.o05:59
LambdaComplexOr are they executable binaries?06:00
Guest45913LambdaComplex: Yes, like log files on ubuntu.06:00
LambdaComplexSounds like you might want the tail command06:00
LambdaComplexBy default that'll just give you the last 10 lines of a file06:00
Guest45913LambdaComplex: I might want to search for a keyword, though. So I like your grep nano command.06:02
Guest45913LambdaComplex: My usb finished reading/writing :)06:02
LambdaComplexNo, not grep and nano. Nano is an editor, You'd want cat and grep06:02
LambdaComplexOkay, now run md5sum because I swear it should be installed :P06:02
Guest45913I just ran it using the command: md5sum openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso06:03
LambdaComplex350b8cb014a4e342cc9a7cc9df891b99  openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso06:04
LambdaComplexOkay, congratulations. You don't have to redownload :D06:04
Guest45913Thankfully :O It was 5 gigs06:05
Guest45913For a linux distro too. Ubuntu is around 1 gig06:05
Guest45913LambdaComplex: Now I'm going to try and make it bootable using the documentation on: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Live_USB_stick06:06
LambdaComplexAnyways, I generally prefer the terminal because I know what's actually going on. Unetbootin does...who knows what? Heck, you're specifically told not to use Unetbootin for Arch because it overwrites the syslinux.cfg file06:06
LambdaComplex(Which means it takes a perfectly working .iso and makes it unbootable)06:07
LambdaComplexGuest45913: It _should_ already be bootable06:07
LambdaComplex"This situation would happen very rarely"06:07
Guest45913LambdaComplex: You're right!06:08
LambdaComplexAlso, if it's installed, I'd prefer cfdisk to fdisk06:08
LambdaComplexBecause it has a gui...er...tui?06:08
LambdaComplexIt looks prettier :P06:08
Guest45913LambdaComplex: Yep, you can create nice text ui's on Terminal.06:09
LambdaComplexLike cfdisk :D06:09
Guest45913LambdaComplex: Beautiful! Haha06:09
Guest45913I'm going to try out opensuse now :)06:10
LambdaComplexGuest45913: Have fun!06:11
Guest45913LambdaComplex: Do you know any fun commands to destroy ubuntu?06:11
LambdaComplexGuest45913: Well...06:11
LambdaComplexThere is that one command06:11
LambdaComplexThe one that everyone with Linux experience will think of when they read what you just said06:11
Guest45913Might as well go out in flames and glory!06:11
LambdaComplexGuys, am I allowed to say the command here? :P06:12
Guest45913The rm -rf / command doesn't work, I tried it.06:12
LambdaComplexYeah, that one >.>06:12
LambdaComplexDid you use sudo?06:12
Guest45913It won't let you even with sudo.06:12
LambdaComplexDid you try /* instead of /06:13
ubottuThe Unix 'rm' command removes files and directories from the filesystem. It is an extremly powerful tool, and you should not run 'rm' commands unless you fully understand them. Do not run arbitrary 'rm' commands you see online. For a beginning guide on using terminal commands, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal and for a cautionary story about 'rm' see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EL_g0tyaIeE06:13
Guest45913If I disconnect all of a sudden, you'll know it worked.06:13
LambdaComplexYou do realize that will delete everything on your system, correct?06:13
LambdaComplexIncluding any mounted hard drives06:14
LambdaComplexAny mounted USB drives06:14
Guest45913oh shiz06:14
Guest45913it's working06:14
ObrienDavebeen nice knowing you ROFL06:14
LambdaComplexI hope you unplugged your usb drive :P06:14
LambdaComplex(shouldn't be mounted anyways though)06:14
LambdaComplexHaha, I did rmrf on a virtual machine once06:15
LambdaComplexThen I stopped it. Tried to do it again.06:15
LambdaComplexExcept I couldn't because rm didn't exist anymore.06:15
Guest45913lol! it deleted the unity taskbar's!06:15
ubottuDO NOT RUN THAT COMMAND! That particular command is DANGEROUS and shouldn't be uttered here. REST OF YOU: DANGER, WILL ROBINSON, DANGER! Do not use the command or utter it here thank you!06:15
ObrienDaveJUST a bit late LOL06:15
LambdaComplexObrienDave: Okay, fine! dd if=/dev/zero :P06:16
Guest45913I'm still alive! haha It said operation not permitted for the essential stuff.06:16
LambdaComplexGuest45913: This is the part where you either thank or curse Ubuntu for being "idiotproofed" for lack of a better term06:16
Guest45913LambdaComplex: It's funny, it didn't close the applications I had open, but it deleted everything else other than the essential stuff like I said.06:18
LambdaComplexGuest45913: That stuff is probably in RAM or something like that06:18
ObrienDavebecause what you see is in RAM06:18
LambdaComplexIf you close the applications you have open, I'm willing to bet you won't be able to reopen them06:18
Guest45913This is the ultralxde desktop environment, actually.06:19
Guest45913It's as lightweight as it gets, as everything is in ram.06:20
LambdaComplexThat's optimism if I've ever seen it06:20
LambdaComplexAnd now you're gonna go from super SUPER lightweight to something that takes a 5 GB iso06:21
Guest45913I feel for all the poor linux noobs that got tricked into running that command, though. Haha.06:22
LambdaComplexAnd that's why (as the bot says) you should never run a command unless you know what it's doing06:22
lotuspsychjegood morning to all06:23
Guest45913It's been fun all, I'm going to try and boot up Ubuntu for fun and see what happens, and then I'll try out my bootable usb for Suse.06:24
LambdaComplexGuest45913: Feel free to message me here (or /query me) any time06:24
Guest45913LambdaComplex: Okay! I'll make my username something like LightweightOS06:25
Guest45913This will give new meaning to that username, though.06:25
LambdaComplexI really hope you're not expecting that thing to boot :P06:26
Guest45913Lambdacomplex: Hey, if it's idiotproofed it might ;)06:27
Guest45913I could try the recovery mode.06:27
Guest45913There's a mode similar to that.06:27
Guest45913Ok! I'm rebooting now :)06:27
bin0x58Hi, can anyone give me advice about how to learn06:28
LambdaComplexbin0x58: Read everything and asks lots of questions06:28
bin0x58unix that is06:28
LambdaComplexBut learn how to ask good questions06:28
lotuspsychje!manual | bin0x5806:28
bin0x58ya sorry06:28
ubottubin0x58: The Ubuntu Manual will help you become familiar with everyday tasks such as surfing the web, listening to music and scanning documents. With an emphasis on easy to follow instructions, it is suitable for all levels of experience. http://ubuntu-manual.org/06:28
LambdaComplexGuest45913: Godspeed06:28
bin0x58What is the best book in your opinions?06:29
ObrienDavebin0x58, http://ss64.com/bash06:29
LambdaComplexI wonder if recommending the Bandit wargame to people would be a good idea06:30
bin0x58Im currently reading "The Linux Command Line" by william shotts06:32
ObrienDavewargame? i got into WoT for a while06:32
LambdaComplexI think we're talking two different kinds of wargames06:33
LambdaComplexObrienDave: http://overthewire.org/wargames/bandit/06:33
ObrienDavehmmm, interesting :)06:35
LambdaComplexObrienDave: Definitely seems like a decent way of teaching basic skills. Like, the first level just takes using cat on a file. Then level 24 is "A daemon is listening on port 30002 and will give you the password for bandit25 if given the password for bandit24 and a secret numeric 4-digit pincode."06:38
LambdaComplexBasically there's nothing horribly difficult, just a lot of "basic" stuff that could be useful06:39
ObrienDavemost of that security stuff is quite interesting but i have not been able to find a good way to learn the basics06:41
ricardis best HDMI DVI-D 18 + 1pin cable or a VGA cable06:41
ricardObrienDave, hdmi dvi?06:43
ObrienDavehdmi > vga06:44
LambdaComplexDVI > HDMI > VGA06:44
LambdaComplexThough HDMI does have the benefit of transmitting audio (if it's HDMI 5.1)06:44
ricardthe cable is hdmi dvi-d06:45
LambdaComplexLike, HDMI to DVI?06:45
LambdaComplexHDMI on one end and DVI on the other?06:45
ricardyes hddmi and dvi on the other06:47
LambdaComplexYes, that is better than vga06:48
ricardthanks LambdaComplex06:48
TJ-Do we have a hexchat package for theme management? Not been able to find anything in the archive06:53
ObrienDaveare they going to FINALLY include HexChat and can Xchat?306:55
TJ-ObrienDave: I prefer xchat; TCL is fun :)06:55
LambdaComplexTJ-: http://hexchat.readthedocs.org/en/latest/building.html#building-theme-manager06:56
LambdaComplexWell, there's that06:56
ObrienDaveXchat is not maintained anymore. why keep it?06:56
LambdaComplexThere's also an AUR package for it apparently06:56
TJ-LambdaComplex: That's not what I call a theme manager; it requires Mono just to use it - it was written and targeted at Windows with .net, ughh.06:56
* ObrienDave takes aim at LambdaComplex ;P06:57
TJ-ObrienDave: We have hundreds of packages not actively developed by upstream; it doesn't prevent them being useful to some users.06:57
LambdaComplexObrienDave: What? :P06:57
LambdaComplexTJ-: I suppose if you're comfortable with git you could use stow for version control of your hexchat config files06:59
* ObrienDave SMH and sighs ;P06:59
LambdaComplexObrienDave: Again, what? :P06:59
TJ-LambdaComplex: I think I'll dump hexchat and use irssi :)06:59
LambdaComplexTJ-: Pfft, weechat is better ;)07:00
* LambdaComplex waits for ObrienDave to sigh07:00
* ObrienDave thinks you're both wacked LOL07:00
=== ircmaxell is now known as giantwaffeldonke
TJ-LambdaComplex: either will do I guess; My main issue with hexchat is there is no way to test/apply darker themes so the screen isn't mostly glaring white background. I want a neutral grey so my eyes aren't getting burned07:02
cyberalex4lifeTJ-, there are themes07:02
cyberalex4lifeTJ-, https://hexchat.github.io/themes.html07:03
ObrienDaveLED screens can't burn your eyes like a CRT ;P07:04
LambdaComplexTJ-: http://sprunge.us/YcOM07:04
LambdaComplexThat's what I use07:04
TJ-cyberalex4life: Yeah, I was looking at them, but if I've got a GUI client I'd rather expect it to provide an easy way to test/alter the theme from the GUI07:04
cyberalex4lifethese you have to unzip theme, restart hexchat and see07:05
TJ-ObrienDave: They do mine for the number of hours I use them. I have all the other screens with other applications using dark themes, so hexchat stands out all the more.07:05
ObrienDavethey have brightness control ;P07:05
TJ-hexchat doesnt :)07:06
LambdaComplexTJ-: Do you have redshift?07:06
ObrienDaveyour screen does ;P07:06
TJ-No, I don't use gnome07:07
LambdaComplexI think that's a non sequitur07:08
ObrienDavei don;t use gnome either and my LCD has brightness control ;P07:08
LambdaComplexRedshift is amazing though07:09
ObrienDaveyou know, the little menu button ;P07:09
TJ-Oh, you mean the colour adjustment widget. It's not a monitor issue, it's an application issue07:09
ObrienDaveSMH mountains out of mole-hills ;P07:09
LambdaComplexYou're welcome to try that config file I linked you to07:10
cyberalex4lifeI tried red-shift, didn't like, would prefer a screen filter, such like those on android, rather07:11
cyberalex4lifebut there is none07:11
* LambdaComplex should probably go to bed07:12
TJ-The problem I have is hexchat in a section of 1 monitor glaring which makes focusing on terminals on the same monitor uncomfortable07:14
cyberalex4lifeI honestly don't like to orange icon, I am more a blueish guy07:19
LambdaComplexTJ-: http://i.imgur.com/Vufohe7.png07:20
cyberalex4lifeeven the red from xchat I prefer more, but the icon disapears after a gnome shell restart07:20
TJ-Some people can be hyper-sensitive to colour schemes too, especially if they have some degree of colour-blindness, or other acuity07:20
TJ-LambdaComplex: Yes, that's definitely where I'm headed.07:21
TJ-LambdaComplex: LXDE?07:21
cyberalex4lifeTJ, yes and I have such problem, I don't like playing games at high settings because of that, and that is why I like gnome shell07:21
LambdaComplexTJ-: BSPWM with xfce4-panel07:21
wisehows everyone07:22
cyberalex4lifeI guess we're good07:22
wiseyou guess07:23
TJ-Ahhh... I don't know whether I'm just becoming reactionary, but I've got so fed up with the way Gnome/Unity/KDE have gone I'm finding myself sticking with lightweight DEs and terminal applications more and more.07:23
cyberalex4lifethat's because I'm good, I don't know about the others :P07:23
mehdi_hey guys how can i create iso from my current OS and installed on some other PC?07:24
TJ-mehdi_: *create* the ISO, or simply write an ISO image to a device?07:24
LambdaComplexTJ-: My ricing is a never-ending process. I'm probably gonna start seriously learning about lemonbar scripts within the next week07:24
cyberalex4lifemehdi_, there are some tutorials there, even videos, but you have to be carefull to dependencies07:25
LambdaComplexEither lemonbar or dzen2. Haven't really seen any advantages or disadvantages either way07:25
mehdi_create the ISO of my current system and then boot it up and install it on another computer07:25
mehdi_i  dont want to go through some package installation again07:26
TJ-mehdi_: You, mean make an image of 1 system and deploy it to another07:26
TJ-mehdi_: You can use something simple like 'dd' or more intelligent like 'clonezillla'07:26
cyberalex4lifemehdi_, http://lifehacker.com/5921054/ubuntu-builder-lets-you-build-your-own-customized-linux-distribution07:26
mehdi_@ TJ- there used to be an application called remastersys07:26
TJ-mehdi_: In the archives? I don't recall it07:27
cyberalex4lifemehdi_, https://www.maketecheasier.com/build-your-own-ubuntu-based-distro-with-novo-builder/07:27
cyberalex4lifeI believe there are quite a few ways07:27
TJ-mehdi_: imaging one system to another with Linux is simple - unlike Windows there's no tie to the installed hardware; it is all auto-discovered at boot. If you can do it, hook up the target drive to the donor system, boot a Live image, and copy file-systems across.07:28
TJ-I say 'file-systems' since disk sizes and partitions may (need to) be different on the target07:29
TJ-I've found using LVM mirroring a great way to clone a system07:30
mehdi_@ TJ- the project discontinued07:31
TJ-mehdi_: I guess there isn't tremendous call for it when most people have such abundant bandwidth, but I share your dislike of needing to install via package-manager simply to create clones07:32
TJ-I've been working on a GRUB bug, the symptom of which is in nativedisk mode it fails to activate a SATA controller because it needs to force the link speed lower, and doesn't. My favourite error message: grub_dprintf ("ahci", "Couldn't put AHCI in AHCI mode\n"); (first 'AHCI' should really be 'SATA controller')07:34
shafoxHow can I install ctypes ?07:34
mehdi_@ TJ- im not as professional as you07:35
TJ-mehdi_: I'm trying to suggest 'easy' ways to achieve the same result ... can you connect the target drive to the source PC temporarily, or visa-versa?07:38
TJ-mehdi_: depending on how much space is used by the donor installation, it might fit on a USB flash device07:38
cyberalex4lifemehdi_, maybe an external hdd, if any (formated in ext3/4)07:38
cyberalex4lifeand a live image to be able to do this stuff07:39
TJ-mehdi_: A neat trick is, from a Live image boot, to shrink all file-systems on the donor to their minimum size, lzma compress them to images on a USB device, and then reverse the process on the target. Oh, and resize the donor's file-systems back to normal afterwards :)07:40
cyberalex4lifeTJ-, it may be too overwhelming for a new guy07:41
cyberalex4lifefor example, manjaro is ok for me, but to start to build everything in arch, neah, too much wor07:43
TJ-cyberalex4life: I know. I'm just offering alternatives, if the aim is to reduce time/downloads required for cloning.07:43
cyberalex4lifelet him do the more easy stuff, in time he'll search for other ways07:43
cyberalex4lifeand it took me 3 days to port all the stuff I needed from ubuntu07:44
TJ-cyberalex4life: I've never understood the desire to rebuild everything instead of using pre-built binaries. In the majority of cases, building for a specific CPU won't gain much if anything in the way of improved performance, but it sure does waste a lot of time and energy07:44
cyberalex4lifeI used to finish installing ubuntu in half a day07:45
TJ-There's a quick way on Debian/Ubuntu systems to extract the list of packages required to duplicate the config, and it's not "dpkg --get-selections", it's "debfoster" - which identifies the top-of-tree packages only, which when installed on another system retain the 'automatically installed' status of all their dependent packages07:46
mehdi_@ TJ- @ cyberalex4life  it seems that i wasnt clear enough , for example take ubuntu image and and booting on a usb and install it i want, instead of ubuntu image be the OS that i want07:46
cyberalex4lifeI don't like it either, because it's too much work, 3 days is a lot, but I got bored of ubuntu, and since opensuse had some thing with nvidia and intel07:46
cyberalex4lifemehdi_, unetbootin works from from every OS I think07:48
TJ-mehdi_: When you say 'ubuntu image'. do you mean a standard installer/Live ISO image, or the image of an installed Ubuntu system?07:49
cyberalex4lifelater I found out that ubuntu-mate way also works from every distro: sudo ddrescue -d -D --force ubuntu-mate-15.04-desktop-amd64.iso /dev/sdx07:50
cyberalex4lifewhile Disk Creator gives problems from time to time07:51
mehdi_@ TJ- standard installer/ISO image07:51
cyberalex4lifemehdi_, what OS are you using now?07:51
mehdi_@ cyberalex4life unetbootin create yhe bootable usb from ISO , i wanted to create the ISO07:51
EriC^^round and round we go..07:52
mehdi_@ cyberalex4life ubuntu 14.0407:52
cyberalex4lifemehdi_, maybe this will help : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization07:52
cyberalex4lifeI can't find "that" video I watched once on youtube07:54
TJ-mehdi_: I'm lost. I think we have an English comprehension problem here, for which I apologise. When you said "how can i create iso from my current OS" and I asked "*create* the ISO, or simply write an ISO image" you said "create the ISO of my current system and then boot it up and install it" ...07:54
TJ-mehdi_: ... I understood you to mean you had an existing Ubuntu installation on 1 PC that you wished to clone/copy/install to another PC.07:55
mehdi_@ TJ- exactly07:55
EriC^^why did you say standard ubuntu iso?07:56
TJ-mehdi_: Ahhh! OK, so I wasn't as a confused as I thought :D07:56
EriC^^that's what confused me07:56
TJ-mehdi_: OK, so all my previous suggestions are valid hehehe07:56
mehdi_@ EriC^^ tj- asked07:56
mehdi_tanx fellas07:56
cyberalex4lifeit's a bit of info to digest, but I avoid this stuff usually because of the updates that appear all the time, I think I better install the genuine, update it, than strip what I don't want and install what I want07:58
cyberalex4lifeI've been using this app: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/10/y-ppa-manager-0092-released-with-new.html; for repo backup, it's usually what I need, than sudo apt-get install all the way07:59
TJ-grrr, weechat documentation organisation is terrible. I feel a patch coming on!08:15
Johnny_Linuxit should be called patch-chat08:19
TJ- It would make sense to provide a single index.html page in the weechat-doc package so users can actually navigate the installed pages, and to break out the per-language files into directories rather than embedded it in the filenames.08:22

cyberalex4lifethis should set stack size for group users to 1024009:22
TyrealTJ- that ping worked09:22
Tyrealand no worries09:23
TJ-Tyreal: OK, so that confirms the system doesn't have DNS resolution. Did the installer get it's network automatically via DHCP?09:23
TyrealTJ- yes09:23
TJ-Tyreal: so either the DHCP server didn't provide a nameserver, or the system isn't using it09:24
Tyrealok so how do i go about fixing that09:24
cyberalex4lifeOre5ama, ulimit is not available with sudo for me like TJ- said is user based09:24
TJ-Tyreal: with DHCP in the installer I've never known it to not configure correctly if the DHCP server is handing out the options09:24
TJ-Tyreal: You have a shell prompt you're working from?09:24
TJ-Tyreal: Try "cat /etc/resolv.conf" see if there is a "nameserver ..." entry09:25
sachin_a /msg NickServ identify mylifeisubuntu09:25
Ore5amacyberalex4life, i get bash: ulimit: open files: cannot modify limit: Operation not permitted09:26

TJ-Tyreal: really, "name<space>server ..." ?09:26
Tyrealsorry that was an accident09:27
Tyrealthere is no space09:27
TJ-Tyreal: phew!! :) ... OK so the DHCP server has told your system to use 2 DNS resolvers. Test them, first ping their IPs to prove they are available09:27
Tyrealusing the same command i used before?09:28
TJ-Tyreal: Yes 'ping -c 5 a.b.c.d'09:29

atralheaven_Hi, can I use "Password and Keys" on ubuntu for enabling ssh-agent for my ssh keys? my ssh key type is ed2551909:31
TJ-Tyreal: I guess the missing is the problem since it is listed first. So that needs removing. I'm not sure if there is a text editor available in the installer environment so it might be easier to simply re-write the /etc/resolv.conf file. Do you want to check for an editor first, before we do that?09:32
Tyrealwhich ever is preferable09:33
Tyreali don't min09:33
TJ-atralheaven_: Just FYI "Password and Keys" is usually the "Seahorse" application - in case you want to search some more about that specific issue09:33
TJ-Tyreal: " echo "nameserver" > /etc/resolv.conf "09:33
TJ-Tyreal: then try pinging a public hostname again09:34

burhanso why is it that gnome-terminal cannot display full-color unicode glyphs?09:44
TJ-Tyreal: We know routing is OK, we know .34 is good and .1 is bad. I can only assume the DHCP server is handing out incorrect nameserver options09:45
Tyrealso should we edit the resolve conf09:45
TJ-Tyreal: do you have 'nslookup' or 'dig' on there "which <program-name>" will tell you09:45
Tyrealboth say /usr/bin/nslookup or dig09:46
burhanif your DHCP server is ending out bogus resolvers; you can configure your DHCP client to ignore the resolvers sent by the server.09:47
TJ-Tyreal: Good, that means they are installed. Try "dig www.google.com @"09:47
Tyrealit ran and sayid connection timed out; no servers could be reached09:49

TJ-Tyreal: Now try "dig www.google.com @"09:50

TJ-loa: The current 15.10 development of Ubuntu10:14
loaTJ-, it is bad to update stable version to development?10:15
TJ-loa: If you need very recent functionality, or functions not compiled into the packaged versions, it can make sense to keep a local backport of the latest package.10:15
loawhat is "local backport"?10:15
TJ-loa: Don't do it! I'm talking about using a single package - ffmpeg - from 15.10 as the basis for maintaining the package as close to the Ubuntu configuration as you can, rather than using checkinstall10:16
TJ-loa: When you build the package yourself locally, to provide some function the Ubuntu package doesn't contain10:17

alocerTyreal12, systemd dosn't do  runlevel .10:39
Tyreal12when i type sudo apt-get install sysv-rc-conf it states: reading package list, building dependency tree, reading state information done, package sysv-rc-conf is not available, but is referred to by another package. this may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source10:39
not_starkTyreal12: the only config tools for systemd that I know of are graphical10:40
alocerTyreal12, yes dat package is obsolete10:40
Tyreal12what do you mean by systemd does do runlevel10:41
bekksTyreal12: systemd doesnt use the concept of runlevels.10:42
baizonalocer: systemd uses targets which serve a similar purpose as runlevels but act a little different. Each target is named instead of numbered and is intended to serve a specific purpose with the possibility of having multiple ones active at the same time. Some targets are implemented by inheriting all of the services of another target and adding additional services to it. There are systemd targets that mimic the common SystemVinit runlevels so you can10:42
baizonstill switch targets using the familiar telinit RUNLEVEL command.10:42

NokajiTJ-: Thanks but the specs say it does a much higher resolution 1020p I can only get 960x72013:15
TJ-Nokaji: 1020p? It could be an interpolated mode. Check with the uvc tools it could also be that some modes don't support the pixel formats the client does at high res, or at certain refresh rates13:22
NokajiTJ-: It does vary if I shift from viewing in MJPG, YU12,  RGB3 etc - I'll take at look at your tool and see if I can find a manual online - thanks13:25

TJ-Nokaji: Have you tested it with uvcview - that usually shows every UVC function that is supported13:32
alistairhello im on ubuntu 15.04 using a vga monitor and hdmi screen, the displays are mirrored in settings, however when i boot up the boot menu only appears on hdmi and the login screen only on hdmi, after login it is fine but i want it to be an exact mirror all the time how can i acheive that, thanks :-)13:32
TJ-alistair: That is controlled by which output is set as the 'Primary' - often that can be set in the PC firmware/BIOS Setup13:34
BuzzardBuzzalso the video card may not support that, depending on its feature set13:34
NokajiTJ-: I currently have it on GTK UVC Viewer (presumably the same thing) but I could try other viewers - I just found a 'getting started' manual too, It's second hand so wondering if USB 3.0 is needed but it is too old to expect that13:35
alistairok i will have a check in the bios, many thanks :-)13:36
TJ-Nokaji: Yes, thats guvcview I think13:37
NokajiTJ-: Interesting, uvc viewer was playing at 720p, 15 frames, VLC plays at 800#600, 25 frames - an option not even offered by UVC-V13:38
TJ-Nokaji: As I said, it may depend on what pixel formats are supported. That may depend on compile-time options rather than run-time dynamic linking, but I've not looked at uvcview for years now so not sure13:39
NokajiTJ-: Well, you've given me a few things to try so thank you. Maybe I can find a more detailed manual on it too, in case there is some inscrutable setting involved13:44

NokajiTJ-: getting    [bash: !info: event not found]    but i'll web-search for similar commands13:55

papy_Hi! I am unable to connect to a linux (ubuntu 14.04, smb 4.1.11) samba share from a w10 client. Connection from a w7  client works. I'd be really happy if someone could tell me how to troubleshoot the issue.14:38
papy_I know this could be a windows issue, but maybe I can check the linux side first...14:39
cfhowlett!samba | papy_14:39
ubottupapy_: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/samba.html14:39
TJ-papy_: check the Windows Event Log, and the samba logs under /var/log/samba/14:39
papy_More info: the windows diagnostic just says: "file sharing resource (<url>) is online but does not answer to  connection attempts" (translating from french)14:39
papy_TJ-: there are many many files in /var/log/samba, which do I check?14:40
TJ-papy_: The files specific to the windows client hostname/IP address, the smbd and nmbd files I see to recall14:41

papy_Ok I have more information (pinging TJ- ). Debug log levels 3 are very different between a w7 connection and a w10 connection attempt.15:18
papy_w7 selects protocol SMB2_10 immediately, then there is some security negotiation, and then it works.15:18
papy_w10 starts with "switch message SMBnegprot (pid 2855) conn 0x0", then requests plenty of protocols before SMB2_FF is selected.15:19

BernzelMy post holds all the information. Too much to type here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/670538/graphic-issues-playing-games15:38
snowkidindok i have an existential question. In my experience a lot of people are developing in ruby / django etc on their home computer and then "pushing to heroku" which is sort of lame in my opinion. You don't get the real experience, and i like seeing my work in real time. I have an ubuntu server that serves webpages on the "real" internet with domain names and dynip hosting.  Getting ruby to work in production mode was a learni15:39
snowkidindexperience and django is being equally - if not more - difficult to get a grasp on. As a developer who is dealing with web technologies in general, how should I be utilizing my development machine? I currently have a project that is live, being served for a business application, and i have several reasons to keep it connected to the public internet. Must i get yet a second server to putz around with new technologies to15:39
snowkidindcontinue moving forward? it's pretty much configured as a production server.15:39
norbinTJ-: done, restarting to verify15:40
LambdaComplexsnowkidind: Couldn't you keep the public stuff public and require a user/pass for access to the "testing" area?15:41
snowkidindim doing all that with .htaccess15:42
wafflejocksnowkidind: it's pretty off topic here, but typically I personally just use VPS services like AWS or digitalocean or linode or whatever to have small server instances that can handle the load for public sites, I typically also have a staging location where any of my changes to a develop branch get pushed then when they're merged into master they get pushed over the live site15:42
snowkidindi guess im burnt from ipage because the lag time is ridic15:43
snowkidindi guess my biggest issue is that im always twerkin the config files and its starting to make me a bit nervous what else i am breaking15:45
snowkidindi dont know quite enough to be confident at that knowhatimean15:45
BernzelWhere do I find System -> Administration =15:45
wafflejocksnowkidind: yeah can maybe check out doing things with docker for building out your set of apps and config you need for the server that way you don't have to worry about it so long as you're changing things in the container you can deploy the whole container to another server and it shouldn't be affected really15:46
NorbinThat fixed it, ayy :)15:47
NorbinHow did you come up with finding it though, Just so I will try myself next time, since I did Google beforehand.15:47
MonkeyDustNorbin  what were you struggling with?15:47
snowkidindyou are helping me make this decision - the one project has gotta gget on a prod server stat15:47
TJ-Norbin: thanks for confirming, I'll upgrade that bug report15:47
TJ-Norbin: I searched all bugs for 'invisible cursor' and identified likely culprits based on title15:48
snowkidindis it normal for servers to have rails and django installed simultaneously?15:48
NorbinMonkeyDust, invisible cursor on a fresh LTS install15:48

TJ-Norbin: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/15:49
BernzelCan I remove every single driver with some command?15:49
wafflejocksnowkidind: in terms of apps you run together it's just a matter of resource usage really shouldn't be a problem so long as the rails and django apps aren't eating all the RAM or otherwise maxing out any of the resources15:50
snowkidindnot an issue, i am studying both; want to be able to see both in action15:51
wafflejocksnowkidind: yeah I mean most systems have ruby and python by default I think now, problems can happen if you have things that need various versions of those (python 2 vs 3) but there's things like rvm (ruby version manager) or for node nvm so you can easily have multiple versions and switch between which is active15:53

ThinkT510Bernzel: without knowing how they were installed it would be difficult to tell you how to remove them16:52
bekksBernzel: Follow the uninstall instruction from where you downloaded the drivers.16:53
lrsI mean it borking worked16:53
ioriaBernzel, try to find the installer ... locate amd-driver-installer-catalyst16:53
BernzelThinkT510, hm okey. bekks , that's impossible since I can't remember. I must re-install Ubuntu I guess16:53
bekksBernzel: you said you installed the drivers from the AMD website...16:54
lrsEriC^^, BluesKaj: Awesome. It worked. Maybe I should uninstall xubuntu too so it doesnt crap up eventually.. Do you know how I do that?16:54
Bernzelbekks , ehm okey. Then I did I guess.16:54
bekksBernzel: At least thats what you said.16:55
EriC^^lrs: you could get the packages it installed from /var/log/apt/history.log and uninstall them16:55
BluesKajlrs, are yo on ubuntu now, with unity DE ?16:55
lrsomfgggggggggggggggggggg steam works too. Not sure if the performance driver kicks in when it is needed or do i need to select it in nvidia-settins?16:55
lrsBluesKaj, Yeah16:55
lrsAnd it looks different too. Very strange. I think this driver and setting i have no is the one I really need to have16:55
BluesKajlrs, why xubuntu then ?16:55
EriC^^lrs: or purge xubuntu-desktop, but you'd still have packages from it though16:56
lrsThe old stuff was something I just magically managed to work by like, luck16:56
lrsBluesKaj, Thats the only way i could enter an x enviroment before16:56
lrsI had to chat with EriC^^ on my phone before. lol16:56
lrsEriC^^, Like, abiword and whatever? and the theme stuff?16:56
Jake___Hi, is there someone using IRSSI? I had one little question, can i disable te server outputs like 'user has joined #ubuntu', to make it more clear to read?16:56
lrsBUt it is removed from the login screen and makes it possible to crap something up?16:57
EriC^^yeah, maybe the notification stuff too etc.16:57

BluesKajBBL, errands16:59
EriC^^yeah it just removes the metapackage16:59
lrsWhat about purge?16:59

josePHPagodaHello everyone!  I hope you are all having a good day.  I am trying to migrate an Ubuntu server running under VMWare to KVM.  The copying of data seems fine and it starts to boot, but fails saying it can't find /dev/mapper/SERVERNAME--vg-root18:39
josePHPagodaany ideas?18:39
bekksjosePHPagoda: Did you recreate the physical volumes, volume groups and logical volumes?18:39
bekksjosePHPagoda: prior copying data?18:40
josePHPagodai used clonezilla and cloned the entire dist18:40
unknown_artist\join #p2p-TIP18:40
josePHPagodaerr disk18:40
josePHPagodaso everything should be copied and configured identically to the source18:41
josePHPagodadoes that make sense bekks?18:42
KanchelsisSo if I have a complex laptop and two hard drives and a mismounted ubunutu partition on the secondary hard drive that I want to write over with the latest version of ubuntu, who should I talk to?18:43
josePHPagodaKanchelsis: what do you mean?18:43
KanchelsisI have two hard drives18:43
josePHPagodayes. continue :)18:43
KanchelsisPrimary has windows18:43
bekksjosePHPagoda: I would have migrated the vmdk file.18:43
Kanchelsisand secondary has two partitions18:43
Kanchelsisone of the two is ubuntu18:44
josePHPagodabekks: it's just a pain to copy things from the vmware datastore that's local, i'll see if I can do it though18:44
Kanchelsissomething is wrong with the way it is mounted and the partition is buggy18:44
Kanchelsisdrivers are not working18:44
bekksjosePHPagoda: export the vm as ova, and unpack the ova later on.18:44
KanchelsisI want to write over it with 15.* version of ubuntu18:44
Kanchelsisand make sure drivers work18:44
bekksKanchelsis: Why do you think "something is wrong with the way it is mounted and the partition is buggy"?18:44
Kanchelsisand that when I load from grub it does not ask about mounting18:45
bekksKanchelsis: grub shouldnt ask about mounting :)18:45
KanchelsisIt asks if I want to mount everytime I boot18:45
Kanchelsisand let ubuntu boot18:45
josePHPagodabekks: yeah, it's just a pain to do it.  i've already migrated the two other vms off of this host using clonezilla, would have been nice to finish it up18:45
bekksKanchelsis: It should not ask :)18:45
josePHPagodahacker-of-honor: please do not flood18:45
KanchelsisLemme see if I can find what I am talking about18:46
mateusz_how can i disable notification like someone join or quit18:47
KanchelsisI can't quit find it but I think when I boot it, it is asking if it can mount my primary hard drive18:47
Kanchelsisthat has windows on it18:47
Kanchelsisand I want it to stop asking18:47
Uptimemateusz_: depends on client.18:47
Kanchelsisbut the more important issue is the drivers failed18:48
Kanchelsisand I have no idea why18:48
Kanchelsislike one boot it was fine18:48
mateusz_Uptime: I'm using hexchat and can't find this option18:48
josePHPagodabekks: i'm just going to pluck out the vmdk and mount it directly18:48
Uptimemateusz_: For global (all channels): settings > preferences > Chatting > general > hide join and part/nick change messages. For a per channel basis, right click the channel name on the left-hand side > settings > hide join/part messages18:48
Kanchelsisand the next, none of the drivers were working18:48
josePHPagodaonce that's working i'll convert it to qcow2 like the rest of my machines18:48
KanchelsisMaybe I am wrong18:49
Kanchelsisnot that experienced18:49
Kanchelsisjust know it is not working and the mounting message happened at the same time18:49

KanchelsisOr do I have to wipe the secondary drive completely?18:52
btorchwhat is the difference between the %post on a ks.cfg and the late_command on the ubuntu.preseed ?18:53
derek01annnnd Im back.18:55
KanchelsisCan someone please help?18:55
derek01So not sure whos around, but I had been having a problem with Gnome, and Nautilus crashing.18:55
derek01Whenver you drag and drop a file, it crashes nautilus18:56
derek01Most prople suggestions was that I nerfd the install, Im on a fresh 15.04 install, and it still occurs.18:56
ioriamaybe compiz settings18:57
KCmetrocompiz is why i want to get rid of unity18:58
KCmetroreplace it with my personal fav. win.mgr. fluxbox18:58
KCmetrousing an older computer, which really does not like compiz18:58
ioriaKCmetro, you can install another De and select it from the login screen18:59
gambl0recan anyone help me install imagemagic?18:59
KCmetrohmm, strange, i tried that didn't work18:59

ioriaKCmetro, don't know much about vm18:59
ptlsajanand i have some question , can anyone help me?18:59
KCmetrowell i am running VMs but not as the core system19:00
ioriaKCmetro, what command did you use to install fluxbox ?19:00
KCmetrowm, window manager (fluxbox), is my personal preference over all the desktop environments, it lets me set things up how i like them19:00
KCmetroat least, it does so in a more open format, even if the otehrs do they also have their own general styles that I don't really care for19:01
gambl0rehow would i go abouts installing imagemagick using ubuntu19:01
KCmetrooh i can't remember, it was the other day, probably just sudo apt-get install fluxbox (nothing else) and i haven't config'd anything w/ it yet19:01
gambl0reinstalling using npm didnt work19:01
KCmetroi think i might have to19:01

KCmetroi have a fresh install of the most recent ubuntu (15.04?)19:07
ioriaKCmetro, Unity then.... yes you have that option :-)19:07

gambl0reim asking a question19:18
bekksgambl0re: You are.19:18
Flannelgambl0re: because "imagemagick" isn't the name of an executable.  Imagemagick is a suite of libraries.19:18
gambl0rehow am i ranting?19:18
Flannelgambl0re: More importantly, what are you ultimately trying to accomplish?19:18
bekksgambl0re: And you are not listening to what people tell you.19:18
gambl0renot listening is not the same as ranting...but anyways19:18
k1l_yes. you are just ranting because you dont know why you dont find "the program" which is not a single program at all19:18
bekksgambl0re: thata why I said "and".19:18
gambl0reim obviously a beginner at this, thast why i  seemed confused19:18
Flannelgambl0re: What are you trying to accomplish?  (What is your ultimate end goal? modifying an image? what?)19:19
gambl0reexactly which line was i ranting?19:19
gambl0redo you know what ranting means?19:19
gambl0rebut anyways...i dont want to get into an argument19:19

derek01bekks: that would be why then ahaha19:35
bekksderek01: sde is not a valid filesystem, sde1 is.19:35
linuxnewbie22If I removed a package, such as wine from the synaptic package manager and realized I wanted to fully delete it... I now can't do sudo apt-get --purge autoremove wine. So what should I do to fully remove it? It just says that I don't have it installed when I run that command.19:35
Seveaslinuxnewbie22: sudo dpkg -P wine19:35
TJ-linuxnewbie22: "sudo dpkg --purge wine"19:35
Seveaslinuxnewbie22: to find all package that have been removed but not purged: dpkg -l | grep ^rc19:35
Seveasand to remove them all: dpkg -l | awk '/^rc/{print $2}' | xargs sudo echo dpkg -P19:36
Seveas(remove the echo after confirming it works)19:37
derek01bekks: but sde1 is already mounted19:37
bekksderek01: Then why are you trying to mount sde?19:37
ffoxxIn firefox, in the youtube html5 player, media source extensions, mse & h.264, and mse & webm vp9 are disabled. how do i enable them?19:37

derek01bekks: Am I being stupid and missed something lol19:37
dirtyomlet_sup everyone19:38
ffoxxi'm using ubuntu 14.04.19:38
bekksderek01: I want to know why you are trying to mount sde, while sde1 is an already mounted filesystem.19:38
linuxnewbie22Tj-, Seveas: It says "warning: ignoring request to remove wine which isn't installed" I ran the command sudo apt-get --purge autoremove wine1.6-i386   earlier which became a broken package.19:38
derek01bekks: Shoot, im sorry I left out a 2, i was mounting /dev/sde219:38
bekksderek01: sde2 isnt a partition containing a valid filesystem.19:39
TJ-linuxnewbie22: what do you mean by 'fully delete it' - if it has been uninstalled it has gone19:40
ffoxxanyone know how I can enable em?19:40
Seveasderek01: sde2 is an extended partition, which doesn't contain a filesystem but more partitions (in your case sde5)19:40
Seveasderek01: sde5 is a swapspace though, not another partition.19:41
bekksSeveas: It is a partition, used as swap space.19:41
bekksIt isnt a mountable filesystem, though.19:42
Seveaserr, I meant filesystem  in that sentence :)19:42
linuxnewbie22Tj-: Last time that I installed a bunch of desktop environments to test them on Ubuntu, and then uninstalled them later, it messed up my system to the point where I had to re-install it. I believe that not everything for those desktop environments was erased from my system.19:42
SeveasTJ-: 'apt get remove' will leave configfiles in place. 'apt get remove --purge', or 'dpkg -P' will remove even those.19:42
derek01bekks: Seveas: it doesnt really matter I suppose, Unless it could be causing the nautilus bug im experiencing19:42
TJ-linuxnewbie22: It will only 'mess up' if you try to 2nd-guess the package manager by removing packages it wouldn't remove itself19:42
bekksderek01: It has absolutely nothing to do with it.19:43
Seveaslinuxnewbie22: unlikely. Those settings are stored in your homedir, which even an apt-get --purge will not touch.19:43
derek01bekks: I didnt think so hahaa, thanks for the info though19:43
linuxnewbie22Seveas: When I booted up it showed the Kubuntu logo, when I got to the login-manager it was the one lubuntu uses, when I was logging in it showed the xfce logo, and when I was logged in it used unity. Despite me uninstalling kubuntu and xfce, although I did keep lxde.19:45
Seveaslinuxnewbie22: that does sound messed up. Nothing that's not fixable, but I understand the frustration.19:46
TJ-linuxnewbie22: That's the various session-managers and supporting packages :) The easiest way to overcome that is to "sudo apt-get --reinstall --install-recommends install <preferred-DE>"19:47
linuxnewbie22Seveas: So what I wanted to learn the second time around, was how to fully delete things so they didn't linger on my system. However, I got some info online that it's more stable to not mess with other desktop environments.19:47
neldogz I was having some general problems and re-installed my OS. When I opened gnome files I noticed that my raid 1 array I had previously setup was ready to go. Is there anything else that needs to be done to the array or can i simply continue using it nornally?19:47

parapank1l_: no chance . . corporate rulles, bullshit and stuff :D20:49
mtnztane, you keep adding things to the original question :(  you aren't going to be able to rewrite the partition table of a running os20:49
allizomparapan: can you boot from optical drive?20:49
parapanjatt: pls tell me more :D20:49
parapanallizom: nope, unable to change the boot order or to access boot- it is passwrd protected20:50
mtnztane, hope you have backups20:50
ztanemtn: I am, the info is in /sys/block/sda20:50
ztaneoh well20:50
bekksztane: /sys/block/sda contains a current state only, no backups.20:51
TJ-ztane: what type of partition table was it (MBR, GPT) ?20:51
ztanebekks: I have a running system20:51
bekksztane: Do you have backups?20:51
ztaneTJ-: cant remember :P20:51
ztanebekks: obviously not, wasn't going to overwrite the first block of sda :D20:51
parapanjatt: it has to be installed first ..the hyper v ...20:52
linuxnewbie22So, I just ran the command: sudo rm -rf /media/owner/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_640051   It's saying cannot remove (filename): Operation not permitted. How do I delete the things that aren't permitted.20:52
jattparapan: is available in windows 820:52
Bashing-omztane: There are back up partition tables . what returns ' sudo dumpe2fs /dev/sda1 | grep superblock ' Where "sda1" replace with the current '/' partition designation .20:52
TJ-ztane: If it is GPT over-writing sector 0 doesn't matter20:52
jattparapan: but not for windows 720:52
ztanethis is the tenth time in my life I do this, but this is the first time on a running system so20:52
ztaneI believe it wasnt GPT though...20:52
TJ-ztane: if it is MBR, or a hybrid-protective MBR that can be recreaed by tools such as gdisk20:52
parapanjatt: got it ..I am stucked with W7; no upgrade on my laptop - maybe the next one in 2 years :D20:53
linuxnewbie22Is there a command more powerful than sudo -rm -rf that will delete anything, even if it isn't permitted?20:53
bekkslinuxnewbie22: If it isnt permitted, you cannot delete it.20:53
linuxnewbie22bekks: These are files on my flashdrive, there must be a way to delete them.20:54
TJ-ztane: If it is pure MBR, you can recreate it from /proc/partitions or /sys/block/20:54
bekkslinuxnewbie22: Gain the permissions, delete them.20:54
EriC^^linuxnewbie22: what does the error say?20:54
linuxnewbie22EriC^^: Here's one error: rm: cannot remove ‘/media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_640051/home’: Operation not permitted20:55
EriC^^is this a cdrom?20:55
EriC^^type mount | grep /media20:56
linuxnewbie22EriC^^: It's a USB flashdrive.20:56
linuxnewbie22EriC^^: That command's output was : /dev/sdf6 on /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_640051 type btrfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,space_cache,uhelper=udisks2)20:56
ztaneah gdisk -l says no gpt so must be mbr20:57
ztaneTJ-: yeah, I'd been wondering if there is any tool :P20:57
ztaneto make sure I do not fsck up things20:58
linuxnewbie22bekks: How do I go about gaining the permissions?20:58
bekkslinuxnewbie22: sudo chmod e.g.20:59
=== trabbit_ is now known as trabbit
ztaneah I'm doing with gpart, going to be slow tho20:59
TJ-ztane: testdisk21:00
ztaneif any of these tools actually cared to check if the /sys/block things made sense :d21:01
TJ-ztane you already have the sizes and starting sectors21:01
TJ-ztane: The tools are designed for forensics recovery of offline images, rather than saving a live system21:02
TJ-ztane e.g. "grep sda /proc/partitions" will get you the starting offsets. You can calulate sizes from those numbers too.21:03
Tyrealgood morning all21:03
linuxnewbie22bekks: All of the files say that no user group may change the content, however it won't let me change that. Is there a way for me to make anyone be able to change them?21:03
bekkslinuxnewbie22: sudo chown / sudo chmod21:04
burk_20TJ-, thanks :-)21:04
linuxnewbie22bekks: I think chmod changes who many modify the file.21:06
bekkslinuxnewbie22: Yes.21:06
bekkslinuxnewbie22: and chown changes ownership, so you could take over the ownership and delete the file.21:07
gregtom6I have tried keyboardtester.com and letter "c" is recognised under ubuntu (just clicked, because some kind of error the keyboard original layout was gone), but in windows the website doesn't recognise the "c"21:07
bekksgregtom6: How are we supposed to know how and why windows behaves as it does?21:08
gregtom6bekks: are you a bit nervous about something? please rest then and stop this style21:09
gregtom6bekks: if you can't behave normally then please do not answer21:09
bekksgregtom6: I am sorry that you take our lack of knowledge of windows as offense.21:09
gregtom6bekks: just the "how are we supposed to know" part21:11
linuxnewbie22bekks: I just changed the permissions from noone to only owner. What could I use to change it to anyone?21:11
gregtom6bekks: I don't think everybody uses linux in here for work and doesn't touch windows21:11
bekksgregtom6: Which doesnt make this a windows support channel - thats what ##windows is for.21:12
bekkslinuxnewbie22: chmod21:12
auronandacegregtom6: you're asking why something doesn't work while on windows, this channel is for ubuntu support21:12
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!21:12
gregtom6bekks: in ##windows people may answer to me for example "how are we supposed to know about linux"21:12
k1l_gregtom6: please ask in ##windows for issues with windows. we cant solve that in here. thanks21:13
linuxnewbie22bekks: I used the command: chmod o+w /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64005121:13
bekkslinuxnewbie22: Which will not grant you permissions to delete the file.21:13
bekkslinuxnewbie22: sudo chown ...21:13
linuxnewbie22Bekks: Is this a good idea? sudo chown root /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64005121:15
bekkslinuxnewbie22: That will not solve your problem with deleting /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_640051/home21:16
linuxnewbie22bekks: How about this: chown owner-user:owner-group /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64005121:18
bekkslinuxnewbie22: No.21:18
minitruegregtom6: whats your problem? i have a dualboot system.21:18
linuxnewbie22bekks: I'll figure it out, haha.21:18
bekkslinuxnewbie22: That will not change permissions on /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_640051/home21:18
linuxnewbie22bekks: There's no /home part at the end.21:19
bekkslinuxnewbie22: Thats what you wrote regarding your error message.21:19
ztaneTJ-: I wish, but somehow fdisk now keeps adjusting the partitions strangely21:19
ztaneallocates more sectors etc...21:20
linuxnewbie22bekks: Oh, I was going to change the write permission for the entire directory. All the files aren't writable21:20
gregtom6minitrue: the problem was certain keys didn't work neither on windows nor on ubuntu. I tried to fix that on windows, but can't (with asus atk control app)21:20
gregtom6or something similar it's name21:20
bekkslinuxnewbie22: Then change them recursively.21:20
Kamuelahow do I decompress a .zip from the command line?21:20
bekksKamuela: unzip ...? :)21:20
minitruegregtom6: gpg keys?21:21
Kamuelabekks: genius21:21
gregtom6minitrue: finally I recognised that it's with the Fn key I think, what is stucked, but not physically21:21
minitrueahhh keyboard keys21:21
linuxnewbie22bekks: Something like this: Sudo chown owner-user:owner-group /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64005121:22
bekkslinuxnewbie22: No...21:22
gregtom6minitrue: all in all the normal letter keyboard keys and ctrl, shift, etc. is working (I think F keys are not, but that's not problem)21:22
linuxnewbie22bekks: I mean, sudo chwon -R chown owner-user:owner-group /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64005121:22
ztaneI guess I just need to create with last sector instead21:22
bekkslinuxnewbie22: that looks better :)21:22
gregtom6minitrue: so every key almost works, except the c, if I activate num lock21:22
bekkslinuxnewbie22: But isnt correct, still :)21:22
bekkslinuxnewbie22: sudo chown -R ...21:23
linuxnewbie22bekks: sudo chown -R owner-user:owner-group /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64005121:23
gregtom6minitrue: except the c. The ubuntu recognised the c button pressing, so I was able to program the c letter to that keycode21:23
gregtom6minitrue: windows doesn't recognise the c button itself21:23
gregtom6minitrue: so I just programmed that to right control21:23
linuxnewbie22bekks: I don't know what the owner-user:owner-group part will do, though.21:23
bekkslinuxnewbie22: you need to change ownership to a user you have access to. e.g. your user, your group.21:24
minitruegregtom6: you can use xev to test if they key works or not21:24
ztaneoh welllllll21:25
linuxnewbie22bekks: I'll try sudo chown -R owner-ross:owner-ross /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64005121:25
bekkslinuxnewbie22: No.21:25
bekkslinuxnewbie22: not owner-ross, but ross.21:25
gregtom6minitrue: it worked after reprogramming the letter to that keycode21:25
gregtom6minitrue: but windows doesn't recognise the key itself21:25
linuxnewbie22bekks: I'll try sudo chwoner -R ross:ross /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64005121:26
gregtom6minitrue: ubuntu wrote something about the key but I don't remember21:26
gregtom6minitrue: something was false in there21:26
gregtom6minitrue: maybe there were no programmed letter or function for that keycode, I don't know21:26
linuxnewbie22bekks: sudo chown -R ross:ross /media/ross/openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64005121:26
minitruegregtom6: but the key works?21:26
minitruesorry but i dont understand the prblem21:26
santosxenguys! how to change the shortcut for switching the language to shift + alt? That doesnt work for me21:28
gregtom6minitrue: Fn seems to be stucked somehow in the notebook, because even if I reinstall the whole computer it doesn't work...num lock activates without fn and for example k, l and j letters written with activated numlock.21:28
TJ-ztane: Solved it yet?21:28
minitruegregtom6: ok run xev in a shell21:28
gregtom6minitrue: if I disable numlock, the letters will be pagedown, home and up arrow21:28
gregtom6minitrue: I ran that previously21:28
ztaneTJ-: no21:29
minitrueif fn is pressed when you click for example j you will see kp_end or something like that21:29
TJ-ztane: what are you stuck with?21:29
minitruetry pressing j and see whats there21:29
minitruethen try pressing fn + j21:29
gregtom6minitrue: well, every important keys are working with activated numlock, only the c letter didn't work, but I reprogrammed that with xsomething21:29
ztanewhen I create the extended partition, the first available sector within it is greater than which it was originally!21:30
minitruegregtom6: first lets see if fn works21:30
gregtom6minitrue: the user who will use that notebook is my mother and she won't use fn keys and function keys21:31
TJ-ztane: Change the disk alignment value in the fdisk expert settings I think it is21:32
minitruegregtom6: what are you trying to achieve?21:32
gregtom6minitrue: nothing for now. As I said, the important keys are working for my mother21:33
gregtom6minitrue: she prefer to use windows, I think I will only use the ubuntu on that, but windows doesn't recognise if I pressed the letter c or not21:34
gregtom6minitrue: but I could reprogram that to other key (right control)21:34
ztaneTJ-: couldnt find it there either :D this is sucky, the disks were created by ubuntu installation partition resizing21:34
ztane*i mean you can edit C/H/S there but I guess the installer did this with no regard to any C/H/S21:35
TJ-ztane: CHS aren't use; it used LBA21:35
TJ-ztane: but the disk alignment is usually infered from the geometry/size, and defaults to 2048 sector boundaries21:36
linuxnewbie22So after deleting everything on my flashdrive I have a new problem: Ubuntu isn't recognizing it after I plug it in.21:36
minitruegregtom6: ok, so if you press c21:37
minitruewhile on xev21:37
minitruewhat happens?21:37
gregtom6minitrue: as I said, I could reprogram that on ubuntu, so now it works, writes 'c' character in a text editor21:37
ztaneI need to use the "last sector" way of entering stuff...21:37
gregtom6minitrue: previously it didn't work21:37
gregtom6minitrue: some other function keys didn't work correctly, but that's not a problem, since my mother won't use them21:38
linuxnewbie22So my flashdrive disk is sdf and the part is sdf1, but somehow I need to find a way to reformat it.21:39
gregtom6minitrue: is my english is bad?21:39
linuxnewbie22Including the undeletable content that's still on it.21:39
TJ-ztane sfdisk allows reading a text 'script' file that describes the partitions, you could write that and import it21:40
k1l_minitrue: he will not solve that ubuntu issue and we cant support windows in here. so its done.21:40
minitruegregtom6: no, but i want to know if the c works or not21:40
TJ-ztane: if you can 'pastebinit /proc/partitions' I can format it for you21:40
gregtom6minitrue: YES, it works :D21:40
ztaneTJ-: and now you say, I think I got it right now :D21:40
TJ-ztane: triple-check :)21:41
minitruegregtom6: ok if the c works in ubuntu, the c works in the computer, you probably want to ask some guys in #windows or other place like that  how to trouble shoot that21:41
minitruemaybe is the keyboard layout, or something like that :P21:42
minitruebut here is probably not the best place21:42
ztanethe last partition got automatically the correct size so21:42
cliff777 I installed Ubuntu along side windows 8, and I am not unable to boot into the windows boot loader. Are there any fixes for this?21:42
ztanethe extended container isn't at the same position but hardly matters21:42
gregtom6minitrue: I have already said that a few other keys DIDN'T work for now, but that's OKAY21:43
gregtom6minitrue: since my mother WON'T use them21:43
gregtom6minitrue: I mean they don't work in UBUNTU21:43
gregtom6minitrue: but that's OKAY :)21:43
linuxnewbie22What do I do if I type df in terminal and it doesn't show my flashdrive there?21:44
ztane(the sda5-sda7 have correct start sectors and sizes)21:44
mtncliff777, doesn't the linux boot loaded see windows? or is some other problem?21:44
TJ-ztane: as long as it doesn't overlap the previous allocation21:44
cliff777mtn, there is an error, ill try to get a picture of the output21:45
ztaneit doesn't (the fdisk is at least smart enough to detect *that*)21:45
cliff777mtn, it says it cannot load the image21:46
TJ-ztane: You're sure the partition before the Extended container is the correct size? That'd be the worry, if it was smaller than previously21:46
mtncliff777, the windows image? maybe something went wrong with the windows install21:46
cliff777mtn, yes it cannot find the windows image. But windows was installed before ubuntu21:47
ztaneTJ-: no, larger21:47
mtncliff777, run update-grub while in ubuntu, see if it sees windows. then reboot and try again.21:47
cliff777mtn, will do, thank you21:47
