stacks88on windows if you ping a host/ip, and there is packet loss, it will say Request timed out. but on linux when you ping, it doesnt show that Request timed out part. instead you have to pay attention to the icmp_seq numbers and notice how they are skipping or not going in order.. to realize its timing out here and there and that some packets arent going through. i know that when you ctrl+c or end02:21
stacks88the linux ping it will tell you the packet loss summary etc. but is there a way to get linux ping to spit out the Request timed out or show when a packet doesnt go through in real time like it does on windows?

dionysus69as there is no vagrant channel may I ask vagrant question here, I am running ubuntu in it anyway07:07
cfhowlettdionysus69, you can try ...07:07
dionysus69how do I make a backup of it? for example host OS explodes and dies I will have a real hard time setting up ubuntu from scratch so how is it done to backup vagrant guests so I can just plug the box into a different host if I wanted to and it would work the same way07:08

bajopickinI'm trying  to install kubuntu 14.04 alongside windows.  I set up one partition of ext4 and one of swap, and I've set the boot loader installation to dev/sda.  But I keep getting the error message "the grub-efi-amd64-signed package failed to install to /target/  .  I have definitely already disabled fastboot and secure boot.07:13

badkeypointsOkay sorry for that.07:14
badkeypointsWell, after I "removed" gnome shell which basically included purge, remove, etc, I got back my lxde and ubuntu desktop as de options in the login screen07:15
cfhowlettbadkeypoints, do you still have the alternate DE installed?07:15
hwpplayer1Hi friends , i need to know how much GB is a distro repository07:16

badkeypointsI can't even see the gnome terminal. I mean, after a fresh installation of Ubuntu, Ctrl+Alt+n starts the gnome terminal app. But now it's all black. And the window border thing07:18
hwpplayer1I need to manage my own distro and i need server Spider_07:19
bajopickinwileee, what's the difference between legacy and EFI?  WHatever you think would work07:19
hwpplayer1I understand that 6 TB x 4 is enough07:20
wileeebajopickin, If you're uefi, you want a uefi install, not to the mbr but the efi partition, I suspect you've seen the wiki, this info might help.07:21

wileeebajopickin, Your error "the grub-efi-amd64-signed package failed to install to /target/"? sda is the HD IE mbr install, UEFI has a partition instead.07:26

ubottubajopickin You mention key things from this wiki, I assumed you've seen it: UEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI07:27
TwirlHackSmash: it just takes time to load the right click options or something07:27

TwirlSpider_: but its unrelated to the issue07:33
wileeebajopickin, Not sure why you would.07:33
bajopickinwileee, I thought I'd need to use boot repair to switch to UEFI or something07:34
bajopickinwileee, what's the part of the wiki you wanted me to read07:34
wileeebajopickin, Nah, what you need I think is someone to look at your setup and help you through is all, things have changed. You could fry your windows you don't flail about, I'm not your help however.07:35

MaxFramesI have a netbook and various applications have dialog windows that don't fit the screen, so I cannot access the bottom part of the window11:06
MaxFramesis there a way to make the window scroll up past the top of the screen so to reveal the hidden part?11:06
MaxFramesan example is the capture options window in wireshark, I cannot access the buttons on the bottom even after resizing the window to the minimum size11:07

flappyApparently mine was an intermittent issue, so :v11:22
mcphailOlotila: does the current proprietary driver support your card?11:24
mcphailOlotila: AMD have a habit of dropping support for cards very quickly11:25
mcphailOlotila: alternatively, support might not have made it in to the current driver yet (no idea if your card is an old or a new one)11:26
cdrw_orgHey, anyone here upgraded from UbuntuGnome 15.04->15.10 yet?11:33
Schwarzbaerp4trix, I assume using 3x3 desktops, and then just using the main cross, wouldn't satisfy you?11:36
SchwarzbaerAlso, there's a compiz plugin that makes your desktops faces of a rotating cube.11:36
p4trixSchwarzbaer, that would be totally fine11:36
p4trixNah, I dont need that11:37
p4trixIts for developping. To have the IDE in the center and other stuff around :)11:37
p4trix3x3 is great11:37
p4trixI just have 2x211:37
p4trixHow do I do that btw?11:37
Schwarzbaerp4trix, there's probably an easier way, but I'd install ccsm, and then you'll find it in it under "General Options", "Desktop Size" tab.11:38
p4trixOk. Thank you. I ll do that11:39

TGYoshiHey guys, I've just installed Ubuntu 15.04, but I'm unable to connect to any wireless network.. It does find networks, after a while asks for the WPA password, then connects for a minute after it gives up.. Any idea? Intel Wireless 3160 card appears to be supported fine11:44
OlotilaAnd I havent installed the driver by hand, only in this windows11:45
p4trixSchwarzbaer, everything worked perfectly. Thx11:45

BluesKajHey all12:05
mirbeauHello. I'm curious to know if it takes more space to have 1000 blank files with names, "a", "b", "c" ... or to have one file that has 1000 lines with "a", "b", "c" ...12:30
hateballmirbeau: ext4 blocksize is 4kb by default12:31
hateballmirbeau: which means a file consisting of 1byte data will still use 4kb12:32
mirbeauSo therefore one big file, containing all those lines is more efficient12:32
mirbeauDo you happen to have a resource on that or did you already know it?12:33
Schwarzbaermirbeau, that's sort of common knowledge for advanced Linux users. However, there's also further considerations to take into account when scaling up. For one, with small files, you'd also run out of inodes quite quickly. OTOH, having a single large file could be bad for seeking content. And then there's filename uniqueness.12:37
SchwarzbaerSo while by asking such an abstract question you have learned about the file system, if you want to solve an actual problem, you might want to take a step back and explain your purpose. :)12:38
hateballSchwarzbaer: Too bad they left before they got your message12:40

daftykinsboxmein: ok so you've just about got enough room for RAM in swap as long as no open programs are creeping into swap12:49
boxmeindaftykins: sudo pm-suspend works, though12:49
daftykinsperhaps it's as simple as sleep being disabled.12:49

EriC^^i get 60 on idle with an i7 and open source amd drivers, with the prop drivers it climbs to 70c13:02
daftykinsat this point i'm going to have to direct you toward ##hardware because as much as i love discussing hardware, it's off topic for this channel really.13:02

Nicholas EriC^^ i have a 3 pin cpu fan, so its almost running at its 100% rpm. be it lower or higher temp it always runs at its full potential. u know what i mean13:18
EriC^^then extend it over the whole disk leaving some space for swap13:18

EriC^^milkcow: because we need to extend the first partition ( that involves deleting the partition and recreating it, and you never know what can go wrong when dealing with partition tables )14:06
popeyfabio: I'd go and poke the realtek website for the source then14:06
fabiopopey, let me be sure14:07
DyzemI've had a number of problems (through my own fault) with Grub and Ubuntu and I'm wanting to make a fresh install. Grub won't start up properly and I have to start the Windows bootloader from the computer's Boot Manager. How can I uninstall both Grub and Ubuntu from Windows and start again? I tried Disk Management but there's like 10+ partitions, most of them unlabelled.14:07
popeyfabio: i have seen other reports that it's realtek too14:07
popeyfabio: https://communities.intel.com/thread/76216 has an iso which you may be able to get something out of14:07
EriC^^Dyzem: type sudo parted -l | nc termbin.com 9999 , it might be a stubborn bios + uefi14:07
milkcowHow much of a sure thing is it that my partition will be wiped? Because I don't have another hard drive14:08
EriC^^milkcow: well, nothing should go wrong, but you never know, power outtage kernel panic etc.14:08
EriC^^if the info is vital i'd back it up first14:08
milkcowIs there a way for me to backup on the BootCD?14:09
k1l!eolupgrades | superkuh look at this for the repo message14:09
ubottusuperkuh look at this for the repo message: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades14:09
EriC^^milkcow: i think you can create a persistent live usb, i've no experience with it though14:09
EriC^^milkcow: another option would be to just use the 50gb as a separate /home14:09
milkcowThat sounds much easier14:10
EriC^^milkcow: ok, type gksu nautilus, browse to /mnt and delete everything except for the /mnt/home dir14:11
k1lsuperkuh: the repos get shut down when a release gets EOL. its not the others to blame that you still want to use a insecure release then. see the bots links to change the repos.14:12
superkuhI think seeing 10.04 must trigger a reflex in most that causes you to become blind.14:13
superkuhLike # but for #ubuntu people instead of compilers.14:13
milkcowIt's a Lubuntu bootcd, so I typed sudo pcmanfm14:13
milkcowBut when I clicked "move to trash", the items doesn't show up in the trash can14:14
milkcowOh boy14:14
milkcowWhat now?14:14
k1lsuperkuh: your are doing it wrong. stop blaming others and beeing such aggressiv14:14
k1lsuperkuh: the 10.04 repos are shut down. deal with it and stop ranting14:14

superkuhk1l, I don't want to get updates. I handle it all myself these days. Since you didn't read I'll re-explain. The actual message about upgrading itself, is bugged.14:15
k1lsuperkuh: your attitude stops you from looking into the solution the bot linked you.14:15
jak2000how to assign a ip to my network card: http://pastie.org/10486076    i think is: "Ethernet controller"14:15
superkuhReally? Because I gave you the benefit of the doubt and actually read the irrelevant links.14:15
EriC^^milkcow: they're probably in a hidden .Trash-0 dir14:15
EriC^^press ctrl+h to show it14:15
k1lhttp://superkuh.com/update-manager-version.txt  shows you are still using the wrong repos.14:16
superkuhMy issue isn't about upgrading. It's about the message pop-up, "Your Ubuntu release is not supported anymore." , which freezes the update-manager GUI and prevents it's use.14:16
EriC^^i think it should be in /mnt/.Trash-014:16
superkuhFor non-canonical repos.14:16
EriC^^superkuh: i think you can disable the message from appearing in the software & sources program14:17
milkcowOh wow, you da real MVP EricC^^14:17
milkcowCould I do rm -rf /mnt/.Trash-0/files?14:17
EriC^^superkuh: under updates14:17

superkuhAlright. Trying to set to "never". I'll see if this stops it.14:18
k1lsuperkuh: http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid <<<  that is not going to work anymore.14:18
milkcowNow I can go back to the /mnt/home directory. What do I do from here?14:19
k1lsuperkuh: the only way you can let your package-manager live is with changing it to the old-releases14:19
popeyk1l: you're reading his paste wrong14:19
popeyk1l: that is where the packages came from, not what his sources.list necessarily says14:19
popeyk1l: while his sources.list may indeed be wrong, that's not what you get from that paste14:20
EriC^^milkcow: ok, type sudo mv /mnt/home/* /mnt14:20
EriC^^milkcow: also, type sudo mv /mnt/home/.* /mnt14:20
k1lpopey: the whole package-management will not work with that shut-down repos.14:20
popeyk1l: I didn't say it would.14:21
milkcowThe second one says "device or resource busy"14:21
EriC^^milkcow: np14:21
popeyk1l: I'm saying you are incorrectly inferring something from apt-cache which isn't the case14:21
EriC^^milkcow: type ls -a /mnt/home , make sure it's empty and everything is in /mnt14:21
popeyapt-cache shows where a package came from originally14:21
k1lpopey: yes. i get that14:21
cfhowlettperhaps we can take the support discussion for the no longer supported releases to a private chat?  please?  thank you.14:22
milkcowdu -h /mnt/home has no files and 4.0K space used14:22
milkcowI have no reason to believe everything is not in /mnt14:22
thebwtsuperkuh: what they aren't showing you is http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ if you need a way to fix a system14:22
milkcowWe're okay14:22
EriC^^milkcow: ok, type sudo rmdir /mnt/home14:22
BluesKajmaybe just tell him how to upgrade to a supported release and be done with it "-)14:22
milkcowWhat do I do after that14:23
popeyBluesKaj: he doesn't want to.14:23
superkuhGuys, guys, just drop it. I'm fine, done talking. This is painful to watch.14:23
EriC^^milkcow: type sudo rm -rf /oldinstall/home/*14:23
BluesKajthen he's out of luck14:23
milkcowBut that's where all my files are14:23
milkcowIsn't it?14:23
EriC^^milkcow: no, they should be in /mnt too14:24
milkcowYou terrified me for a minute14:24
milkcowI meant the files in /dev/sda614:24
jak2000how to assign a ip to my network card: http://pastie.org/10486102    i think is: "Ethernet controller"14:24
EriC^^milkcow: nah, we only need to remove the files in the /home there so we have an empty dir to mount the new partition too14:25
milkcowThe /home directory in /dev/sda6 is where I keep all of my vital files14:25
EriC^^milkcow: yeah, but it's in /mnt now right?14:26

EriC^^if it's all good, we'll continue14:28

milkcowThe directory is now empty14:30
milkcowWhat now14:30
EriC^^milkcow: ok, type blkid /dev/sda114:30

jan112Hey! I need some help regarding a machine that I can't access physically. I need it to be able to run a X11 session without a monitor connected. Afaik xorg-dummy will get me there, but I don't have internet access to that machine (university network), but can ssh into it when I connect via vpn. So: how do I get the needed packages and configuration on there, or get internet access to that machine to use apt properly? ssh tunneling? if so,15:24
jan112how? only ever used it the other way around and not a expert on it.15:24
jan112oh, forgot: runnung 12.04 LTS because of the used software.15:25
daftykinsjan112: why don't you just X forward? it itself doesn't need a running GUI. hell, why do you want a GUI at all?15:25
barCHello, I have a problem with sound not coming through my headphones, on Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS15:26
jan112daftykins, we're running galicaster on the computer, that's the main purpose. it needs to be run as a GUI. therefore X forward isn't an option because i obviously can't let my machine be connected to it 24/715:26
OerHeksjan112, easy: ssh -X <user>@<ip> -p <password>15:28
daftykinsjan112: why is it running on a box tied in the Uni somehow? run it somewhere more appropriately instead.15:29
jan112daftykins, it needs to be in the lecture hall to capture the video and audio streams. there is no other physical way. also, I sadly can't get in that room anymore until monday.15:29
OerHeksmake sure you have " ForwardX11 yes " in ~/.ssh/config. (client)15:30
daftykinsjan112: so X forward it is.15:30
jan112OerHeks, see above. Would work fine if I need it to just run once, but this needs to be a permanent solution.15:30

jan112not having access is the restriction from the university. yes, i understand that it is not a proper setup but my hands are ultimately tied. what i need is to be able to run the xserver without a monitor attached. that's it. of course i could explain why, why there are such restrictions, why we need exactly this software, but, come on... I've already filtered those options out.15:33
OerHeksjan112, do you have root access in that server ? if no, end of story15:33

jan112daftykins, we use this machine to capture lectures (hdmi input from beamer signal, audio input from lecturers mic) with a combination of galicaster and opencast. galicaster because it is the prefered software in conjunction with opencast and does EXACTLY what we need it do to. sadly, it will only run with a X11 server. whole system should be as autonomous as possible. because of the way the lecture hall is laid out (very old) the only15:35
jan112option is to put the machine in the little cabin above the beamer.15:35

daftykinsyou don't mount with FTP servers? :)15:40
reisioPCatinean: use ssh instead15:40
PCatineanah sorry I mounted inversely15:41
PCatineanNah it's because vsftpd does not allow giving ftp access if the parent dir is not owned by root and readonly or some strange stuff like that15:41
PCatineanthat's why a mount must be done towards a certain dir while keeping the directory structure they want15:41
reisioit's because you should use ssh15:41
pbxoh no not this again15:42
PiciPCatinean: depending on how you have vsftpd setup, either the user who is accessing or the vsftpd user needs to have access to the path in question.15:42
daftykinsthere are indeed users hellbent on making us deal with antiquated protocols such as FTP :)15:43

And I have two choices 1) buy a usb soundcard (with support for linux) 2) Buy a wireless headphone with bluetooth and a bluetooth adapter?. Problem is I dont know what I should buy?

lrsdaftykins, Well, I sent it in the the warranty but they said they needed to replace the whole mb17:23
lrsSo im not buying a new motherboard for it. And soldering, well, not sure about that17:23
daftykinslrs: warranty shouldn't mean you pay :(17:23
lrsdaftykins, Well since it looked bvroken on the outside they said its not a fualt in const ruction , i.e im at fault,17:24
daftykinsah ok, just wear and tear17:24
daftykinsthat figures17:24
lrsYeah, wear and tear17:24
daftykinsi'd find someone competent to solder it personally, i'd not go for some ugly external solution17:25
lrsWell, thing is I was just thinking of getting a remote headphone anyway so17:26
lrsBEcause this happens alot to me17:27
lrsSo its not really that much of a work around17:27
OerHeksA desktop i could solder, but laptop, too much work and sensible to put it all back17:27

My built-in speakers work fine, but my headphones don't produce any sound.  After messing around with the alsa-base.conf file options and setting every possible thing in the alsa mixer to the maximum value I get a very low volume sound in my headphones (which is also somewhat distorted).

pbxmarjinal1st, i don't know mint/cinnamon, but for what it's worth you can use Compiz's grid plugin to throw windows around with the keyboard. including moving from one monitor to another.17:52
pbxi suspect that's different from what you were asking for, but it's something useful in the same ballpark17:52
christo_mis it possible to setup an adhoc connection without having two network interfaces17:54
christo_mim using it temporarily to connect another device which will send other wifi creds for that AP to connect to.17:54
marjinal1stpbx: I'll give it a try, thanks.17:55
christo_mthe machine i want to use as an AP is ubuntu.. and ive set up a wifi adhoc connection but it just ajax swirls then fails17:55
daftykinschristo_m: so you want the same wireless adapter to be both an AP and connect to a network?17:56
christo_mdaftykins: heres the situation, the machine is a small intel compute stick.17:57
christo_mi want to mimick the chromecast setup.. when you first use chromecast it is an AP that you connect to and pass network info to17:57
christo_mthen the chromecast stops being an AP and connecst to said wifi. i want to mimick this behavior with ubuntu on the stick17:57
christo_mdaftykins: the issue is i cant even get the AP part to work17:57
daftykinsare you using hostapd?17:57
christo_mdaftykins: no im just using the gnome network manager thing17:58
pranhow does fprint work?17:58
christo_mdaftykins: is it not possible to do this with iwconfig and a simple bash script? is a program necessary?17:58
daftykinsok and what's the other device? why are you wanting to connect ad-hoc?17:58
christo_mdaftykins: i told you why.. i want to be able to pass my wifi information to the device17:58
prandoes it really work any way?17:58
christo_mso on first bootup, its AP.. then i connect with another device to it and pass the wifi details17:58
pranyup I use hostapd17:58
daftykinschristo_m: i saw you say *like* the chromecast but not really that it's actually one :)17:59
christo_mdaftykins: it isnt one.17:59
christo_mits an intel compute stick.17:59
daftykinsoh ok that thing, well now we're making some actual progress17:59
daftykinsno i would say hostapd is the wisest approach.17:59
daftykinsseems odd to me though that this approach is really how they want it to be configured...17:59
christo_mi mean i also did mention earlier that it was an intel compute stick and that i wanted to mimick chromecast but ya18:00

daftykinsnor what makes it an ubuntu problem to be frank18:15
christo_mdaftykins: im running ubuntu on the stick..18:16
christo_mi dont see why it matters what the device is for.. its running the Ubuntu OS18:16
christo_mits almost like you arent reading anything im saying18:16
daftykinsbecause often people come to us wanting to do x, but really they should've asked to do y - but they didn't know that at the time.18:17
christo_mwell, the exact problem is what i said it was, but i will try hostapd as per your recommendation and get back to you18:17
daftykinsso your idea is to supply people with this stick running Ubuntu... and somehow you want to simplify getting it on wifi - but if they still don't have user input devices, what use is it to them?18:17
christo_mdaftykins: because their mobile device is a remote control for it18:18
christo_mits a stick that plays media18:18
christo_mand honestly thats already divulging too much as im under NDA but whatever18:18
daftykinsso your idea is to make it a Kodi/Plex device or similar?18:18
christo_meither way the purpose doesnt matter, the issue remains18:18
daftykinsit actually does since it makes the task more understandable and alternative approaches can be thought up18:18
christo_mthe only alternative approach is using bluetooth instead of wifi18:19
daftykinsas fun as being led around in the dark by a question asker :)18:19
christo_mto pass the cerdentials18:19
christo_mtrust me, ive thought about this for you.18:19
daftykinsto be quite honest it's a pretty rubbish choice of device for the task18:20
christo_mdaftykins: and why is that?18:20
daftykinsthere are far more capable devices with remotes built in capable of more than likely, better accelerated video decode18:20
OerHekscomputestick first use act as an AP that you connect to and pass network info to .. you might want to put this on askubuntu18:21
OerHekstons of more readers18:21
christo_mdaftykins: im not trying to sell hardware remotes, im trying to turn the mobile device into the remote.18:21
christo_mand ive already tested the device with h264 media and pretty much everything on the web and it works18:21
christo_mand most other devices are ARM , im also using node webkit and that doesnt have an ARM build thats quite ready tbh18:22
christo_mso i need intel atom for x8618:22
daftykinsbut H.264 has already been superseded.18:22

nname31have any manual methods???18:25
daftykinsno it truly did :)18:25

daftykinssure is.18:25
MonkeyDustchristo_m  maybe *only* a chromecast can do it18:25
christo_mMonkeyDust: lolol18:25
daftykinsone approach you've got is to modify network-manager to parse wifi config from the microSD card, then provide configs on there18:26
daftykinsstill involves user input though18:26
christo_mdaftykins: it should be enough to establish an adhoc connection with ubuntu on the stick.. have my cordova app create a tcp connection and funnel the details across18:26
nname31i try and dconf but dnot have any "search"18:26
christo_mmy node webkit app is on the other side receiving the details and using a bash script to configure iwconfig18:26

daftykinsand you're still presenting that really poor attitude, so i think i'm done18:28
christo_mwhat i just said makes sense in theory.. the practical aspect is proving difficult since ubuntu is having difficulty being a hotspot18:29
christo_mmaybe driver issues though because of the restricted chipset18:29

theShirbinypreparing the disks manually and using the installer is not working19:31
ubuntuUsernetlar: ssh user@host19:31

ubuntuUserhi all, I've an ubuntu server with openvpn (LAN IP adress is 192.168.X.X with netmask and at a client in a distant network with an ip in range 192.168.1.X with mask What is the best way to acces to computer on openvpn server lan network with the client ?19:33
netlarubuntuUser: That is where I am a bit confused, I have three computers on the same network, how can I connect to just the one I want to19:33
ubuntuUserin the server you tip "ifconfig" to get the server ip adress19:34
theShirbinynetlar: and you don't know the ip of the one you want to connect to?19:34
netlartheShirbiny: The local IP?19:34
netlarOr the public ip19:34
theShirbinyyes the local ip, if you're connecting on the same network19:34
ubuntuUserthe server is on your lan network ?19:34
netlarHow can I find that?19:35
ubuntuUseror it's a remote server ?19:35
netlarubuntuUser: No, for now, it is my lan network, but will want to do remote later19:35
ubuntuUserif the server is in your lan network, tip "ifconfig" on it and get the lan ip address near inet adr on block eth0 if your pluged with RJ45 or wlan0 if you use wifi19:37
netlarubuntuUser: ok, that part makes sense19:38
ubuntuUserthen on client, tip "ssh USER@IP_ADDRESS"19:38

theShirbinynetlar: router port forwarding19:56
ubuntuUsernetlar: it's not easy19:57
ubuntuUserthe best way is to use a VPN network19:57
theShirbinyit is as easy as mapping ports on your router19:57
Guest94233im having trouble connecting my eleduino 3.5 inch touch screen to my raspi 2 with ubuntu MATE 15.0419:57
netlartheShirbiny: Mapping router ports to each computer?19:57
Guest94233i just camt figure it out19:58
ubuntuUserport mapping is the easy way but is less secur than VPN19:58
_Nectar2baizon: still not logging me on19:58
theShirbinyyes, you basically tell the router to forward the connection to a specific computer on your network19:58
baizon_Nectar2: try creating a new user19:58
netlartheShirbiny: Like 3000 for one, then 3001 for another comptuer and so on?19:59
theShirbinynetlar: IP forwarding  allows you to direct incoming traffic from WAN side (identified by Protocol and External port) to the Internal server with private IP address on the LAN side.20:00
netlarubuntuUser: Why is that less secure?20:02
theShirbinynetlar: it may have a different name on your router as "Virtual Servers" or something20:02
netlartheShirbiny: I have an apple airport, they call it port mapping I think20:02
_Nectar2baizon:  the new user work but still not my existing one.20:03
netlartheShirbiny: Is that the only way to remotely connect to a computer, beside VPN?20:04
ubuntuUserit's not really less secur20:04
=== max is now known as Guest50935
netlarubuntuUser: I am going to used public/private keys too20:05
ubuntuUserand it's more easy than set up a VPN networks20:05
theShirbinyjust remember you're exposing your computer to the internet so you want to secure it20:05
netlartheShirbiny: I thought ssh is secure?20:05
ubuntuUserit's just less pratical but for your usage they are no problems20:06
theShirbinyban2fail/permit root login/use only keys no passwords20:06
netlartheShirbiny: Yes, I saw that in the config file20:06
netlarBut the biggest problem I have is I am sending a computer to another state, and will not be with the computer20:07
netlarTo set it up20:07
theShirbinyyou'll also need ip reservation if you're using dhcp20:07
netlarI am trying to set it up as much as I can before I ship it20:07
ubuntuUseruse a vpn20:08
netlarubuntuUser: Instead of ssh?20:08
ubuntuUserinstall openvpn server on your personnal server and openvpn client on the computer you will send20:09
netlarubuntuUser: or the other way around?20:09
netlarubuntuUser: I will be connecting to the sent computer, they are not going to connect to me20:10
_Nectar2baizon: what's the default password. I changed it to empty but cant login now, maybe its the default now?20:10
ubuntuUsernetlar: if you want to send a computer and be sur to keep a link with it, the best way is the vpn client/server20:11
syntroPiare there any quick replacements for pulseaudio? or is it a big effort to replace pulseaudio ?20:12
netlarubuntuUser: But I would be connecting the openvpn server from my place right20:12
ubuntuUserand the client is the remote computer20:13
netlarI thought the server would be the remote computer20:13
netlarI want to have access to the remote computer and login to it20:13

MonkeyDust!debootstrap | theShirbiny20:23
ubottutheShirbiny: debootstrap is used to create a !Debian or Ubuntu base system from scratch, without requiring the availability of !dpkg or !APT. It does this by downloading !.deb files from a mirror site, and carefully unpacking them into a directory you can eventually !chroot into.  See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebootstrapChroot for more information20:23

tewardubuntuUser: if they're the same network you don't20:27
ubuntuUserit's different network20:27
tewardubuntuUser: ideally they're not the same network, but in cases where they are, then you would have to change your routing to say which interface you want data to go over by default20:27
tewardubuntuUser: you can't have two conflicting IP ranges - not safely, but in any case say you did - you would have to problems:20:28
angelpati have a problem20:28
teward(1) local network IPs would never be reached safely because the networks have identical ip ranges and you nuke the capacity to route20:28
teward(2) you can reach 'out' but not necessarily sanely, if you change your ip route to say "All traffic goes over interface abc"20:28

_Nectar2i might just reformat :(21:31
waters33637Yep ;o)21:31
wileeeguest6661, Hope there is an option, if not though there are cheap plug and play wifi for linux out there, most does, in the mean time if needed.21:31
EriC^^_Nectar2: what's the problem?21:31
Ben64daftykins: oh that person.21:31
Ben64daftykins: waters33637: someone posted a link to a bug thing which showed a solution, was that tried?21:32
waters33637lol .... yep .. that person .... ;o)21:32
daftykinshmm i linked a bug on freedesktop but didn't see a solution in it, it was also referring to ancient 2.6.x kernels21:32
guest6661oh, :( , so the only choice is waiting? or and adapter?21:32
waters33637Ben64: only thing i found was a patch from 2009 ///21:32

_Nectar2EriC^^:I managed to create another account, i can login into that21:33
daftykinswaters33637: mind you, xrandr can add modes - i wonder if you could add 1680x1050 to it and try to switch to that resolution.21:33
EriC^^_Nectar2: ok, from that account type sudo find /home/<your user> ! -user <your user>21:34
daftykinswaters33637: can you give me "xrandr | pastebinit" again?21:34
waters33637idk ... Im a newbie .. and will try and google that21:34
daftykinswaters33637: well i found it here - http://askubuntu.com/questions/377937/how-to-set-a-custom-resolution21:34
_Nectar2EriC^^:Should that command be written with the user im on or user which i cant logg into?21:35
waters33637http://pastebin.com/yGAVBT5n - xrandr21:36

mikodoHi everyone. Long time since I have been here. Anyways, I am thinking for my future only. I use /mnt/data for my user data on a different partition of the same drive as my root intall of Xubuntu. Then I symlink to it from my ~. Could I use ecryptfs to *only encrypt my /mnt/data/, data only by using it as secret folder to open after I have started the OS and then unmount with ecryptfs to decrypt it. See what I mean from bodhi.zazen's page under "Make an Enc22:07
mikodorypted Directory here:22:07
_Nectar2EriC^^:should i be doing this from the login (alt + ctrl + f1) or the alternate working user?22:07
daftykinsmikodo: not much point, one area of the disk being encrypted it'd be obvious it's there.22:08
mikodooops: link: http://bodhizazen.net/Tutorials/Ecryptfs#Unique22:08
mikododaftykins, I just want it encrypted, not secret/anonymous22:09
EriC^^_Nectar2: as long as you put /home/<non working user> it's fine22:10

EriC^^_Nectar2: try mv /home/<user>/.bashrc{,.old}22:12
