the_countBashing-om: Really botched your name above00:00
halexander9000ABBA made some really good music.00:00
Bashing-omhalexander9000: I am pleased that you are up and running .. faith in ubunbtu restored . Open source - 1 for all and all for one . Just help out as you can is the repayment .00:00
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: WOW! The official wiki/guide told me that I can run exiftool from the extracted folder, but when I do, the terminal gives me an error about not being installed. XD00:00
k1l_wait. you installed that from some website?00:01
halexander9000Bashing-om, Thanks again~ Calling it a night here. It's been a suspenseful adventure at 2 am, I'll tell you that. Have a nice one. You're a good man Bashing-om. I am forever in your debt. Take care.00:01
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: No. The website told me that I didn't even HAVE to install it. Just run it from the folder. Look at this. http://pastebin.com/iktDes8K00:01
the_countBashing-om: This was our chat when we previously resolved issues, cut and refined, it looks like partially the same issue to me00:02
Bashing-omthe_count: I did not save our work . so ' xserver-xorg-input-synaptics-lts-vivid ' and let us descend into the dependency chain .00:02
k1l_VictoriaXOXO: did you read the errormessage? it got some "hidden" info in it :)00:02
halexander9000Goodnight all.00:02
Bashing-omhalexander9000: Nighty nite ,00:03
k1l_VictoriaXOXO: and first thing to learn is: i dont load stuff from websites!00:03
halexander9000Bashing-om is the man!00:03
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: So I DO have to install it? Why is the official wiki LYING to me? :(00:03
halexander9000But no, really. Om means man in my native language of Romanian.00:03
k1l_VictoriaXOXO: ubuntu already ships a lot of software made already working with ubuntu. so please use the ubuntu repo first.00:03
halexander9000But he's -the- man.00:03
halexander9000Bye now~00:03
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: I can't find it in the software center, but I can find it in synaptic. Is that okay to install from?00:04
k1l_VictoriaXOXO: the exiftools site cant know you are using ubuntu which ships that already00:04
k1l_VictoriaXOXO: they are all GUIs for the same basecommands: apt and dpgk. so yes00:04
k1l_VictoriaXOXO: just run "sudo apt-get install libimage-exiftool-perl perl-doc "00:04
est31are there any good docs for how to set up wayland for kde to test stuff?00:05
est31and AFAIK wayland didnt run on KDE did it?00:05
skwishyhey guys, can I get advice about how to troubleshoot two different laptops, both running 14.04, they freeze up when I "killall chrome"00:05
est31then at least KDE over XWayland00:05
k1l_VictoriaXOXO: but the reason why ubuntu is not clustered with viruses like windows is, that you dont load and install stuff from dubious websites but use the official ubuntu repo.00:05
TJ-skwishy: "strace killall chrome" and review what it is up to00:05
the_countBashing-om: You're last comment was: 'the_count: Pay attention .. We already know " xserver-xorg-input-synaptics " / So how about ' sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-input-synaptics ; sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics-lts-vivid ' . Reboot and let's see what works. '00:06
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: Yes, I know. Sorry. :( Oh, dang! I didn't include the perl-doc part! What do I do now?!00:06
k1l_est31: its the other way around. kde runs on wayland. or xserver (like it is today still)00:06
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: I only ran "sudo apt-get install libimage-exiftool-perl" and without "perl-doc" after.00:06
Bashing-omthe_count: Yeah, so again " sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics-lts-vivid " and here we go once more . descending into the dependency chain .00:06
k1l_est31: and all desktops are heavy alpha state for wayland support. so you have a desktop and can move a window. if you are lucky.00:07
k1l_VictoriaXOXO: just run my command again. packages that are already installed are not intsalled again00:07
est31k1l_, I've heard fedora 24 wants to use wayland by default00:07
VictoriaXOXOk1l_: Phew! :D00:07
skwishyTJ-: thanks, I'll play with that strace tonight00:07
the_countBashing-om: I believe I said this yeterday, but there are unmet dependencies for this, http://paste.ubuntu.com/13355609/00:07
est31and I want to make sure the application I develop runs smoothly on wayland.00:07
k1l_est31: in their rawhide which is just started its development. and not for kde but for gnome.00:07
est31bc I've heard from users that it _doesnt_ run smoothly00:08
k1l_est31: kde seems somewhat behind on that. see martin graesslins blog or g+ posts to get to know what kde is kapable in the latest plasma 5.5 alphas00:08
mistel_hey guys! :)00:08
Bashing-omthe_count: Yepper, and we start that process to find and resolve the denpency issue . I will be back .00:09
the_countBashing-om: Ok Sir00:09
k1l_est31: wayland doesnt run smoothly :)  but you can setup a wayland + weston. weston is the standard implementation as desktop on the wayland protocol00:09
mistel_can someone help me with a problem involving ubuntu or generally linux?00:09
k1l_mistel_: ask here for ubuntu or ##linux for other distros or generel linux comparisons00:10
Bashing-omthe_count: let's see if I have the direction right, do : sudo apt-get install xorg-input-abi-21 xserver-xorg-core-lts-vivid ' . See what the package manager advises .00:10
est31I don't want to get it run on native wayland, not yet. It were already great if it worked on XWayland.00:11
mistel_my problem is in ubuntu i just cant conect to my wifi, it shows up and the password is 100% but it tells me that my password is incorrect / on windows it works perfectly fine thats why im bound to it at the moment :/ thxfor help :)00:11
est31Any way to convince KDE to use XWayland instead of an X server?00:12
the_countBAshing-om: I believe we install the packages it gave as a result, but not entirely sure, E: Package 'xorg-input-abi-21' has no installation candidate00:12
k1l_est31: xwayland is just a wrapper for running xserver inside wayland for legacy reasons.00:13
TJ-the_count: "sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core-lts-vivid "00:13
k1l_est31: so either wayland or xserver. but not both at one time. for the whole desktop.00:13
Bashing-omthe_count: K; -apt-cache search xorg-input-abi-21- shows it to be a compenent of xserver-xorg-core-lts-vivid . Did it install ?00:14
est31k1l_, I've thought that legacy applications run on wayland using xwayland?00:14
est31similar to xephyr?00:14
orfeoHi folks!00:14
the_countBashing-om: One sec00:15
k1l_est31: so in the long run no one wants xwayland to be used. so better going native wayland on the new toolkits those wayland desktops support.00:15
orfeoWhen I try to run this command : sudo a2ensite sandbox.com.conf I get this error message : https://gist.github.com/anonymous/9dd79a72ce914c86139e could someone help me understand what could be possible happening here please?00:15
truexfan81rofl this is not off to a good start00:15
k1l_est31: yes. but xwayland is a xserver put in a window on wayland. its like a wine window.00:15
truexfan81i downloaded the 15.10 32bit iso00:16
truexfan81did a clean install in a new vm00:16

wxlorfeo: it's telling you that you don't have LANGUAGE or LC_ALL set00:16
the_countBashing-om: It installed00:17
orfeowxl: yes? thats all?00:17
est31why does the "Xwayland" command start with a major letter00:17
wxlorfeo: well, those seem to be warnings. then it complains that the site doesn't exist, so there may eb something wrong with your conf file00:17
est31it joins the damn NetworkManager club... :(00:17
TJ-est31: the X server has always been X00:17
k1l_est31: http://wayland.freedesktop.org/xserver.html    but i would honestly go for the wayland path00:18
Bashing-omthe_count: Reboot, and see if the touchpad functions now .00:19
the_countBashing-om: Rebooting now.00:19
est31k1l_, well, problem is we use irrlicht, and it seems irrlicht devs dont want to use wayland. so it means nothing less than abandoning the largest dependency of the 100k lines codebase. in the long term, perhaps yes, but in the short term, it should at least work with xwayland00:20
wxlorfeo: you should make sure there's a <VirtualHost> block with the same name, if i'm understanding the man page correctly00:20
truexfan81yeah this not going well, i think i'll stick with the lts versions lol00:22
VictoriaXOXOtruexfan81: Down with fancy new stuff! :D00:23
truexfan81VictoriaXOXO: it was making it a pain in the rear just to install vmware-tools00:23

orfeowxl: I am following a tutorial which doesn't have it, and it already worked on a server, now on my localhost it doesn't.00:24
truexfan81VictoriaXOXO: the current lts version works nicely in vmware player00:25

tachyondecayI have a new Dell XPS 15 with an Nvidia GTX960M. I need to use nomodeset to boot the 15.10 live USB (it booted once without this, strangely, but hasn't booted properly without since then).

est31so, I got wayland + weston running00:50
est31I can start a shell, everything is fine00:50
est31now I only have to find out how to start Xwayland so that it acts as a wrapper around a program00:50

VictoriaXOXOk1l_: est31: daftykins: Hmm. I guess middle mouse button is easiest.01:14
daftykinsresults are a fine metric01:14
daftykinsfallencl0ud: you wouldn't make an ISO, but you could make an image file with clonezilla01:15
TJ-tachyondecay: that looks like a controller issue; the AHCI RAID ports show up, and there's one port ata2 but no device is found on it01:15
est31seems there is nothing like a clipboard for weston :/01:15
tachyondecayI found a forum post by someone with the same computer as me saying they had to switch to AHCI mode explicitly in the BIOS settings01:16
TJ-tachyondecay: it's possible that is caused by an ACPI bug in the firmware01:16
est31well, I hope it will work later on01:16
TJ-tachyondecay: "[    5.615405] ahci 0000:00:17.0: AHCI 0001.0301 32 slots 1 ports 6 Gbps 0x2 impl RAID mode"01:16
TJ-tachyondecay: "[    5.629819] ata2: SATA max UDMA/133 abar m524288@0xdd100000 port 0xdd100180 irq 125"01:17
TJ-tachyondecay: "[    5.950150] ata2: SATA link down (SStatus 4 SControl 300)"  ... and that's it, the link never comes up, which is why I suspect an ACPI firmware issue01:18
tachyondecayWhat would you recommend?01:18
tachyondecayIf I ultimately have to do a format/reinstall of Windows to install Ubuntu, I will, but then I might as well give up on custom partitioning for now and just proceed with setting up Windows01:21

creycoops missed first line, forgot escape char: /dev/vda5: cannot resize to 3071 extents as later ones are allocated.01:23
TJ-tachyondecay: reading the Intel RST Linux docs, it seems you need to "modprobe intel-rst" module which sits between the AHCI driver and the hardware controller01:25
creycmy root LV is 10G plus a 1G swap, so it shouldn't be a size issue..01:25
TJ-tachyondecay: it is possible that module isn't installed in the Live image, or not loaded by default01:25
tachyondecay"sudo modprobe intel-rst" gives no output01:26
est31yeah its running great now01:28
est31(weston and xwayland)01:28
est31just /usr/share/doc/weston/examples/weston.ini is a bit ... well, not exemplaratory01:29
est31it uses gnome icons,01:29
est31and it even seems to rely on a path which seems to come from a local configuration01:29
TJ-tachyondecay: that means it worked. check it is loaded with "lsmod | grep rst"01:31
TJ-tachyondecay: you'll possibly need to unload/load the AHCI driver, but first check if the device has been recognised now with "dmseg | tail -n 50" see if that intel-rst module has reported anything useful. pastebin the output if there is anything useful01:32
tachyondecayTJ-: lsmod output gives "intel_rst    16384 0"01:36
tachyondecaydmesg output is just a bunch of i2c_designware timeouts01:36
VictoriaXOXOQ: Ugh. My USB stick called "USB" (/dev/sdb1) is read-only. How do I change that? :(01:39
TJ-tachyondecay: OK, then, try "sudo modprobe -r ahci && sudo modprobe ahci" ... if that doesn't report errors that ought to reload the AHCI, which should then be able to search for devices via the intel-rst01:40
tachyondecayNo output from either of those01:41
TJ-tachyondecay: that's expected if they work correctly. most Linux tools only get verbal if something goes wrong01:42
TJ-tachyondecay: check dmesg again: "dmesg | tail"01:42
tachyondecayMore i2c_designware timeouts01:42
TJ-tachyondecay: you should see at least entries for the ahci module re-discovering the chipset01:42
tachyondecayI think those are related to my touchscreen01:43
tachyondecayOK, I reran the modprobe commands and then checked dmesg immediately01:43
tachyondecayAnd I still get "SATA link down"01:43
=== mIKEjONE1 is now known as mICHAELjONES
TJ-tachyondecay: that's a pain. I had hoped having intel-rst in-place would help. Obviously something more is required, or else it is due to a firmware bug. All those complaints on the Dell forums seem to suggest it is a bug01:44
the_countBashing-om: Are you around now?01:45
=== mnepton is now known as mneptok
TJ-tachyondecay: "modinfo -F alias intel-rs" shows "acpi*:INT3392:*" which indicates specific ACPI table support is required, and the firmware isn't revealing that. That may mean it is detecting Linux is the OS and not revealing the same facilities as it does to Windows.01:46
tachyondecayTJ-: Does this mean I should wait for a bit to see if Dell releases a BIOS update that could fix the issue?01:47

tachyondecay(I mean from a dedicated gparted live USB, which I haven't burned yet but could if it's worth trying)01:53
tachyondecayHaha, sorry :P01:53

tachyondecayTJ-: OK. For what it's worth, I don't care if SRT is enabled in the end.02:09
tachyondecayThat sounds like gparted should be able to see my disk (I'm burning a live USB in Windows now)02:10
the_countBashing-om: Have to eat supper again, be back in a bit02:10
TJ-tachyondecay: also, this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=1115702102:12
TJ-tachyondecay: apparently when SRT is enabled in firmware setup, the controller hides the SSD being used as the caching device to prevent it being accidentally written to by the OS02:12
TJ-tachyondecay: and in Windows, special drivers handle the RAID/caching operations, and those aren't avaiable to Linux. On Linux we have similar technologies, like bcache (block cache).02:13
tachyondecayI looked for a way to turn off SRT in BIOS setup and couldn't find it, so I assumed it wasn't on -_-02:14
tachyondecayI must have missed it02:14
TJ-tachyondecay: so that explains - finally - why the kernel cannot see the device02:14
tachyondecayLet me look in the BIOS again and see if I can find something02:14
TJ-tachyondecay: maybe it has some weird name or euphamism as a title, like "super duper wooshing drive accelerator" :)02:15
tachyondecayCannot see anything, searching now. I must be missing it02:18
tachyondecayOh, looks like I need to use a program pre-installed in Windows02:19
TJ-tachyondecay: I think you can assume SRT is Windows-only, and not usable for dual-boot. It seems that the controller being in 'RAID' mode automatically infers 'SRT' mode and therefore the SSD is invisible. So, your ownly solution may be to only operate the device in AHCI mode, not RAID, and have Windows use that and forgo SRT02:21
tachyondecayThat's what I figured02:21
tachyondecayWait, so you mean I _will_ have to switch the mode in the BIOS?02:21
tachyondecayI don't care about SRT at all; but I'm just trying to avoid having to reinstall Windows if I don't have to :P02:22
TJ-tachyondecay: it appears that way, if the firmware is treating RAID==SRT mode, and there is no separate control of SRT02:22
TJ-tachyondecay: it looks like, from that answer by 'Forge', that in Windows you can disable SRT for Windows itself. So you should maybe try that02:23
tachyondecayYeah, I don't see it in this rapid storage technology program on Windows02:23
tachyondecayWell at least I created a recovery disk already02:23

ThetaOrionisHey guys, I intend to keep a portable Linux installation on a pen drive, for secure browsing and related stuff. I tried Xubuntu, but it's somewhat slow. So, should I switch to Puppy slacko, or is there any lightweight *buntu that works?02:24
TJ-ThetaOrionis: probably the issue is the USB device being slow02:25
k1l!lubuntu | ThetaOrionis02:25
ubottuThetaOrionis: lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.02:25
TJ-ThetaOrionis: you might want to create a persistent Live image, where it mostly runs from RAM but can save changes to a writeable overlay file-system02:26
ThetaOrionisTJ-: I see...02:26
OerHeksit might be slow, but it is secure. and workable.02:26
k1lThetaOrionis: but maybe the usb and/or the pc was just slow. keep in mind that all system needs to sit in ram now so there is not much left for the programs02:26
ThetaOrionisTJ-: But, won't a persistent live image be hard to upgrade? I mean, kernel upgrades, etc.02:26
ThetaOrionisRight, that makes sense, thanks k1l. I guess I need to try once on a different pendrive02:27
TJ-ThetaOrionis: yes, that is part of the downside, but your current issue is likely the read/write speed over the USB. disabling file-system metadata timestamp updates with noatime etc might help02:27
the_count Bashing-om: Back, so, which shall I do first? mount or install?02:27

the_countBashing-om: What if we tried that for me? reinstalling xorg for me... Or was that message for me?04:03
daftykinsMrCeeIII: shouldn't need to04:03
Corvus`daftykins: Turns out, they just move them to old-releases.ubuntu.com04:03
Bashing-omthe_count: Yeah .. was for you . my apologoes to CountessBathory for the highlight .04:04
Corvus`Which is just awesome, why not leave them where they are?04:04
Guest55397I have downloaded the drivers and installed okay, but nothing comes out of the printer?04:04
zykotick9Bashing-om: <sidenote re:synaptic driver> if the user can run "synclient" there is a _very_ good chance they have the "synaptic" driver installed04:04
Guest55397Windows 7 and Mac print ok.04:04
Guest55397so it's not the physical printer.04:04

MrCeeIIIdaftykins: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13359191/04:05
wafflejockGuest55397: how is the computer connected to the printer? USB, network, wireless?04:05
daftykinsCorvus`: because people such as yourself will keep using a dead release for months after and not realise something is very seriously wrong.04:05
Bashing-omzykotick9: Can use all help here we can get . That is the thing, driver is installed but "synclient" is non-functional .04:05
the_countBashing-om: Reinstalled and rebooting04:05
daftykinsMrCeeIII: "dpkg -l | grep libavcodec | nc termbin.com 9999"04:05
CountessBathoryyour apology accepted =)04:06
Corvus`daftykins: for what it's worth, you're right, I should've installed an LTS release, then I'd have this PITA 5 months later in april 2016.04:06
daftykinsCorvus`: no 14.04 is good until 2019.04:06
Corvus`Really? Okay.04:07
daftykinsthere was sanity in my comment :)04:07
Guest55397wafflejock, I'm using a networked printer, and Ubuntu has found the IP and installed nicely.04:07
zykotick9Bashing-om: ahhh, sorry for dropping in mid stream then.  i've got nothin' for failed synclient itself, sorry.  synclient is how i toggle disable/enable of my touchpad on my thinkpad (i also have the red mouse-button on the keyboard, so the touchpad just gets in the way sometimes while typing)04:07
Corvus`daftykins: Yes, there was. I just don't want to downgrade. I'd much rather upgrade again in april.04:07
the_countBashing-om: Still no luck, say I booted into an older kernel, do you think that would have any effect?04:07
Guest55397I suspect something with the drivers, but that low down level is complex to find what line of code might need fixed?04:08
daftykinsCorvus`: 15.04 will be dead by the end of Jan, so you'll need to do two afaiui04:08
Corvus`daftykins: what about 15.10?04:08
MrCeeIIIdafty... what did that do?04:08
daftykinsMrCeeIII: create a URL to paste here04:09
ubottuUbuntu releases a new version every 6 months. Each version is supported for 9 months to 5 years. More info at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases & http://wiki.ubuntu.com/TimeBasedReleases04:09
wafflejockGuest55397: some commands you can try here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingPrintingProblems#Network_printer04:09
daftykinsMrCeeIII: you just pastebin'd a pastebin URL04:09
daftykinsno no, i got the URL the first time :P04:10
Corvus`daftykins: So, I can install 15.10, and have it covered till 16.0404:10
MrCeeIIIoh ok04:10
Bashing-omthe_count: Booting an older kernel may well be productive . Try and advise us of what results then with the display and the touchpad .04:10
daftykinsCorvus`: if you upgrade twice right now, sure04:11
daftykins(if you survive ;) )04:11
the_countBashing-om: I will try that, how far back of a kernel should I try04:11
wafflejockGuest55397: if none of those commands help you could also try to watch with wireshark on the the ethernet interface and see if there's any communication going on back and forth between the printer and your computer but nmap and the like shown on that page should help to see what's going on as well04:11
the_countBashing-om: I have from 3.16 to 3.1904:11
Corvus`daftykins: we all might not survive. :-)04:11

Bashing-omthe_count: Ya got an original 3.13 kernel ?04:12
daftykinsMrCeeIII: try "sudo apt-get install libavcodec54"04:12
the_countBashing-om: I installed it after then, so I don't think so... Maybe we could install one... or that may break more stuff04:12
Guest55397wafflejock, thanks, will walkthrought. Yes, I thought about transmission analysis, but wasn't sure if I had to go that low into the abyss.04:13
MrCeeIIIdaftykins: whole bunch of stuff happening now04:13
Bashing-omthe_count: Naw .. as you installed with HWE ( utopic) we do not want to re-introduce trusties kernel . try the 3.16 kernel .04:14
Corvus`daftykins: so. What are the chances it survives the downgrade? Comparing to two upgrades in a row?04:14
Corvus`yeah. Thought so.04:14
MrCeeIIIwhat did that do?04:14
daftykinsCorvus`: downgrades aren't supported04:14
the_countBashing-om: Right, I didn't think of that, rebooting now04:14
Corvus`daftykins: Oh, even better.04:15
MrCeeIIIshall i attemt to open the file now?04:15
daftykinsMrCeeIII: are these files from a cheap camera?04:15
MrCeeIIIno it was pretty decent in its time... just some home movies of the kiddos04:16
Corvus`home movies. Okay.04:16

daftykinsdon't ask me.04:21
daftykinsthat'd be 100% wrong for servers.04:22
Corvus`yeah. Because servers love to be reinstalled every once in awhile.04:22

Corvus`I don't mind admitting it. :-D04:23
django_how do i use my cam to take ictures lol04:24
Corvus`daftykins: they just didn't have any rolling-release distros in stock for jump-starting VPS, and I didn't care enough to change the OS.04:24
Corvus`I still don't.04:24
the_countBashing-om: Intersting, The oringinal 3.16 kernel actually detected the keyboard shortcuts, as well as having synaptics configured as it should be, Although anything prior to this kernel is extremely slow. After the origional kernel that was installed, synaptics settings did not stick, Initial renederd the display correctly except for the scaling, everything else did not04:25
=== anonymous is now known as Guest10495
daftykinsCorvus`: i understand where you're coming from, fwiw i run LTS until maybe 6 months before it's about to go EOL... then i install the new version side by side and migrate my data - power off the old VM, then delete it once everything's comfortably moved.04:25
daftykinsi write notes of how to set up that newer release at the same time04:26
Corvus`daftykins: that's a viable approach.04:26
Bashing-omthe_count: Think'n . Nother thought popped to mind .. as you have several kernels installed .. disk space ? what returns 'df -h ' ?04:26

Corvus`daftykins: can you choose the version you're dist-upgrading to?04:28

daftykinsCorvus`: sort of, in that LTS tends to only upgrade to LTS (best not to say dist-upgrade as that doesn't change release, of course) and non tends to upgrade to anything04:29

Guest55397wafflejock, yes, I am using the IP, but the command $ avahi-browse -a -v -t -r showed IP addresses, but not the printer's IP.04:36
wafflejockGuest55397: ideally if your router lets you set a static IP for a device you can just set it there and connect by IP04:36

daftykinsowen1: anyway to upgrade just chromium, close all open windows ideally and run "sudo apt-get install chroium-browser" or better yet, run "sudo apt-get upgrade"04:40
owen1daftykins: i'll do the latter. thanks04:40

owen1can i keep my browser open?04:41

daftykinsi'd avoid it if possible, you'll need to relaunch it to start v45 anyway04:41

daftykinsowen1: you could bookmark all your tabs, or change the options so it keeps them open04:41
daftykinsmehdi__: try from the terminal; "sudo apt-get update" to start with (first up though tell me what "cat /etc/issue" says04:42

eddwhat is the best way to backup in ubuntu 15.10?04:44
ubottuThere are many ways to back your system up. Here's a few: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DuplicityBackupHowto , https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HomeUserBackup , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MondoMindi - See also !sbackup and !cloning04:44
eddI am not getting how the backup s/w in ubuntu works04:44
wafflejockowen1: typically the program will be in memory and the changes won't affect it but doesn't hurt to close it to make sure none of the changes of closing the program overwrite upgraded config or anything (not typically a problem though)04:45
Corvus`daftykins: you have commands for everything, don't you?04:45
owen1wafflejock: got it04:45
daftykinsCorvus`: just not trolls ;_;04:45
Corvus`daftykins: actually, I'm pretty sure you have commands for that too.04:45
eddthe backups program has its buttons greyed out04:45
edddaftykins, so should I not be using the already supplied Backups tool that comes with Ubuntu?04:46
=== annie is now known as Guest3066
mehdi__daftykins its on paste.ubuntu.com ill try the sec command now04:47
wafflejockedd: if the backup location is setup and there isn't a backup running right now the button shouldn't be greyed out, that said you may want to just use rsync or grsync if you want a GUI to make the configuration for rsync04:47
daftykinsmehdi__: i need the specific URL pasted, as unfortunately guessing the several digit URLs takes time :)04:47
eddwafflejock, I liked how the macosx would keep doing backups behind the scenes. I saw that Backups "claims" to do the same at least :)04:48
mehdi__daftykins: im on Ubuntu 10.10 \n \ :S04:48
eddjust cannot see a backup location it writes to04:48
wafflejockedd: it does pretty much do the same but you have to configure the backup location either a network share or otherwise04:48
eddand I have a external USB drive that it can write to.. but then I might get lazy and not backup everyday04:49
Corvus`daftykins: I think it's time for your EOL lecture once again.04:49
wafflejockedd: should be in storage location04:49
wafflejockedd: I backup like weekly but have git for remote code being "backed up" and backups automated on my servers but don't take it as seriously on my personal machine either04:49
eddbest would be if I had a remote location to store all this :(04:49
mehdi__daftykins: what can i do for now?04:49
eddwafflejock, I have a lot of PDFs and books that I download that I need to keep and wouldn't want to lose them04:50
daftykinsmehdi__: that's been dead for 3 years i think.04:50
wafflejockedd: there are lots of remote options the backup tool here shows S3 or Rackspace as options, personally using a FreeBSD NAS04:50
daftykinsmehdi__: backup and clean install 14.0404:50
Corvus`daftykins: See? Mine been dead only for a couple of months.04:51
wafflejockedd: have an external USB I configured with Clonezilla I use when I setup new systems but the more regular backups for my machine just go to the NAS that has RAID setup to mirror the data I feel pretty confident about that, but daily changes in code all go out to remote git server that has daily snapshots at AWS, all depends on how often you update things or make new data how often you need to backup though04:52
ubuntu-matenoob here. can I mount a /target from wubi.exe /ubuntu/disks/root.disk ext4 ??04:52
wafflejockedd: rsync is nice though cause can work over SSH (think locally too) and can recover from interruptions and do incremental backups (only sync things that have changed access/modify times)04:52
eddyeah I think a weekly one is enough.. the code etc can just go to a git repo or I use Dropbox for that04:53
mehdi__daftykins: am i suppose to install 14.04 by a USB driver? by downloading it from the website ?or there is a way to install it via the terminal?04:53
eddthough with rsync I will have to write a script and run a cron job or something yeah?04:53
eddapparently Dejadup isn't that good.. looking at the reviews it doesn't look good at all04:53
eddrecovery doesn't seem to work very well04:53
Corvus`mehdi__: 14.04 is also dead.04:54
daftykinsmehdi__: you might be able to put the ISO on your /boot if it's a separate partition ; DVD or flash drive would be best04:54
Corvus`as is 14.1004:54
daftykinsCorvus`: nope04:54
ubottuUbuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) was the 20th release of Ubuntu and is the latest !LTS version. Download at http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/ - CHECK FOR POINT RELEASES at http://releases.ubuntu.com - Release Info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TrustyTahr/ReleaseNotes04:54

Corvus`Oh, 14.04 is an LTS?04:54
Corvus`Ok then.04:54
wafflejockedd: yeah DejaDup has been fine in my experience but the file format isn't as simple as a tar.gz of your data04:54
daftykinsyep that's what i suggested installing :)04:54
mehdi__Corvus': i should go with what then?04:55
wafflejockedd: grsync helps you get the commands can basically be like a 1 or two line script depending on what you're wanting to do exactly04:55
mehdi__daftykins: Well thx m8 :)04:55
Corvus`mehdi__: I was wrong initially. 14.04 is an LTS release.04:55
eddwafflejock, just want to backup a few folders like /home04:55
wafflejockedd: but yeah would basically just be a small script with the source, target, and any ignores or whatever and a cron job to run it04:56
mehdi__Corvus': Oh ok thx m8 :)04:56
Corvus`mehdi__: as I've heard it's good till 2019.04:56
Corvus`sounds like a lot of work, btw04:57
eddwafflejock, that should be enough I suppose04:57
eddjust wondering how best I can do it automatically to write to my USB drive04:57
mehdi__Corvus': Well, it will do the job then :) See ya!04:57
wafflejockedd: regarding backing up your home you might want to exclude .cache or if you use thunderbird might want to exclude that unless it's important to you since those files all change a lot04:57
eddam missing my mac already :)04:58
eddI could pick up files from like an hour or two ago that I had accidentally messed up04:58
eddshould I be making local backups?04:58
wafflejockedd: eh there are trade offs, more customization sometimes means more work to get things how you want them too04:58
eddand then copy these backups to my USB drive?04:59
wafflejockedd: believe ZFS snapshots can give you the kind of functionality to roll back but haven't tried running it on my laptop/desktop yet just as a NAS04:59
eddI don't have another server to which I can remotely backup my files.. just a usb drive04:59
eddshould I then do local backups and periodically move them manually to my usb?05:00
eddor make copies to my usb periodically05:00
wafflejockedd: eh I don't worry about having local backups just backup to the USB or NAS or whatever is available typically editors will have local history baked in as well, like IntelliJ for things that were like an hour or a day ago05:00
bqllpdI swear... google is completely useless now... can someone help me find a list for missing devel dependencies for installing rpl/2 from rpl2.net?05:01

eddthen I have to fix all the formatting screwups05:02
eddok will just use grsync05:02
wafflejockedd: hmm yeah haven't had a great time with libreoffice present stuff myself typically I lean on Google Drive for the office tools05:02

wafflejockedd: writer, draw and calc have been good but present does seem to still have some problems05:03

eddoh so you use their online ppt tools?05:03
bqllpdI found a site a while back that lists the missing dependencies from google, but it seems more and more often that google is censoring stuff so I can't find it again.05:03
k1lmeeeen: not an official ubuntu version05:03
wafflejockedd: yeah have used the Google Slides, it's pretty good, not great but not terrible for my uses05:03
eddor you just upload your stuff to gdrive from time to time05:03
eddsometimes I end up using the ppt drawing tools05:04
eddI think I too will give google ppt stuff a shot05:04
eddbetter than Libreoffice screwing me over05:04
meeeenk1l: oh ok thx :)05:04
Corvus`I have an idea! I'll wait till 16.04 and then upgrade, how about that?05:11
reisiosounds silly05:16

wafflejockstanreg: probably safe to say it's going to be better in most cases than dipping into swap space so if you use, free -m and see you're dipping into the swap it might not be a bad idea05:50
reisiostanreg: https://timos.me/blog/zram-to-enable-or-not-to-enable-229/05:50
wafflejockstanreg: personally use a chrome extension called the suspender for pausing tabs I have open in the background I want to be able to go back to but haven't viewed recently, can help to keep the browser memory usage more reasonable05:52
* reisio uses bookmarks05:53
stanregreisio, your link mainly discusses zram in the context of mobile phones; apples/oranges.05:53
stanregwafflejock, hmm, you would think that browsers would compress the tabs you are not actively viewing... don't they?05:54
reisioyou give them too much credit :)05:55
wafflejockstanreg: typically all the browser tabs in chrome (believe firefox too) run as separate processes but they don't actually suspend everything on the page when you switch tabs so video processing or whatever can resume on those pages in the background, hence the extension :)05:55
stanregwafflejock, how does 'pauser' make the memory usage more reasonable? does it 'compress' the tab's space in memory when you pause it?05:57
stanreggotta google that shit05:58
wafflejockstanreg: no just saves the URL and closes the process down for rendering and all I believe, you can tell it not to ever suspend certain tabs too or ones that have script on them seem to stay active like plnkr05:58
wafflejockthen when you click in the tab body it reloads the page05:58
stanreg...so it's just saving cpu-attention to that particular tab you paused.05:59
stanregwafflejock, is that extension from the google library? Can't find it.05:59

Lihow to add androind studio starting file to unity menu and stop using the command .. sh studio.sh?06:04
wafflejockLi you basically want to make a .desktop file for it, there's a handy program that helps with making them called alacarte, can sudo apt-get install alacarte then should be able to create the .desktop file there06:05

stanregwafflejock, what if you 'suspend' the tab while watching a video, and then reload it. Does the video resume from the same position?06:12
wafflejockstanreg: not sure about that honestly don't recall it being a problem so I think either it doesn't suspend those or Youtube is smart enough to resume otherwise think I would notice, I watch mostly short form stuff on YouTube though06:14

azi`hm. I did sudo apt-get remove wine* and now when I log into the system I don't see the toolbar and all the gnome things11:37
azi`is there a way I could undo this?11:37
hateballazi`: check /var/log/apt/history*11:39
Ubuntu-LuckNow@nya I think the dependent packages got deleted by you11:39
hateballazi`: then you can see what was removed, if there are obvious gnome packages missing11:39
azi`hateball: thanks11:39
azi`hateball: is there a way to redo the last remove? or a way to quickly install whatever is listed in history.log in /var/apt?11:41
hateballazi`: None that I know11:41
Ubuntu-LuckNowuse synaptic package manager to download the stuff to a separate folder11:42
azi`hateball: I have the list of packages but i cannot directly do apt-get install. i'd need to parse it a bit :/11:42
Ubuntu-LuckNowthat way synaptic is useful for re-use of packages11:42
hateballazi`: http://askubuntu.com/questions/247549/is-it-possible-to-undo-an-apt-get-install-command there are scripted solution11:43
hateballazi`: but yes, that's all that exists. parsing the log. there's nothing built-in to apt11:44
=== ron__ is now known as defcon6
azi`hateball: unfortunately i am not under X atm =)11:45
hateballazi`: right, well it just lists various grep's, but they are for removing what was installed. not the other way around11:47
hateballazi`: anyhow, I dont know the meta-package for gnome, but cant you apt-get install --reinstall it?11:47
cyberalex4lifeazi`, the meta for gnome used to be ubuntu-gnome-desktop11:48
cyberalex4lifeazi`, you can also install tasksel, then 'sudo tasksel install' and choose from menu Ubuntu Gnome11:49

EriC^^give it a shot12:15
AQLIVEwell another issue is that I now went from Grub to MBR and now nothing will boot. Now it want me to insert the windows 7 media and I guess I'm now 100% stuck untill I get that media right?12:17
AQLIVEog can I somehow get back into ununtu12:17
EriC^^grub to mbr?12:17
AQLIVEI used Gparted and edited the grub loader to MBR instead12:17
unrarHave you tried something like SuperGRUB Recover?12:18
unrarI use it when my MBR goes nuts and I have to boot into Ubuntu to fix everything, it's like "GRUB on a disk"12:18

EriC^^AQLIVE: i dont think you have UEFI12:18
unrarcheck it out --> http://www.supergrubdisk.org/12:19
AQLIVEBut is that a way - now to get back into ubuntu12:19
EriC^^AQLIVE: you can use a live usb to get into it12:19
EriC^^AQLIVE: still unclear as to what you did though..12:19
unrarWhat's your problem AQLIVE, you can't boot into neither Ubuntu nor Windows?12:20
EriC^^grub wasn't adding windows12:20
AQLIVEI used this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI12:20
EriC^^so he probably needed to make an entry manually, not sure what he did though12:21
unrarIf that's so, use Supergrub disk to boot into Ubuntu and then run `sudo grub-install /dev/sda` and `sudo update-grub` and it'd probably be fixed.12:21

KadshI don't know but I can live with it13:04
cyberalex4lifeMrCeeIII, don't count on that. Anyway I use smplayer for video and youtube and audacious for audio. The thing you should try is start some players in command line playing your files13:04

ikonianhyk: a key press is a key press if you want 2 characeter, you press it 2 times, why would you need to press it 4 times13:06

nhykikonia, it also works if i press the "^" key and after that the space key ... or if i press the ^ key once and then a it "transforms" to â ... but i would like to have it like in windows ... press the "^" key twice, "^^" is coming up ... under ubuntu i have to press it 4 times or "^" key>space>"^"key>space to have it appear as "^^" ... sorry for my bad english btw13:10

k1l_demarco: so there is the issue. you still got a lot of 15.10 files and stuff in your system. like the old 15.10 kernel 4.2 and since your system doesnt know that is installed but the grub is using that since its installed, you have a mixed system now.14:14
cfhowlettdemarco, wouldn't hurt to clean out most of those old kernels14:15
k1l_demarco: that is the reason why we dont support downgrades (you did a downgrade and not a clean install)14:15

demarcohow will i do that guys, please help14:17

demarcoTJ i have two partitions14:18
demarcookay let me do it14:18
TJ-demarco: if there's a separate partition for a /boot/ file-system, and when you run the installer you choose NOT to format that /boot/ FS, then what we see there is expected. The reason the system boots with the 4.2 kernel is update-grub scripts use the latest kernel version as the default GRUB menuentry14:19

TJ-demarco: All that seems to suggest you didn't reformat the file-system in /dev/sda1 when you install from the ISO installers, which means files from different Ubuntu releases are blindly over-writing existing files. The fact that /dev/sda1/boot/ contains so many different kernel versions confirms what k1l_ said earlier; the system is in a mess14:29
demarcoso is it the reason why my sound, wireless and usb are not working in 15.04 partition but working in 14.04?14:30

demarcothe system is okay and fine, except for my voice, wireless and usb @TJ14:30
TJ-demarco: that is NOT 'okay and fine' when such major parts are broken!14:30
demarcookay i understand TJ, the only issue i have is with sound, wireless and my usb ports, can it be resolved please ?14:31
TJ-demarco: if you have any personal files in $HOME/ or elsewhere I'd recommend backing them up to either another partition, or another device, then reinstalling cleanly into /dev/sda114:31
TJ-demarco: yes. install cleanly.14:31
demarcookay TJ, can I shrink my drive and allocate more partition to my 14.04...so I will transfer all my files to 14.04 partition and just delete 15.0414:34
demarcoi think its easier that way14:34
cfhowlettdemarco, LTS generally leads to far fewer heartbreaks.  bleeding edges are bloody14:35
TJ-demarco: drives cannot be shrunk :) And I'd recommend against trying to shrink an existing file-system and partition, you'll break it more14:35
demarcobut that was how i partitioned the 14.0414:37
demarcookay TJ14:37
TJ-demarco: if it were me and wanted to use multiple releases, I'd have partitioned the drive with 3 primary partitions: 1. /boot/ = 1GB, 2. swap = 4GB, 3 = the remaining space. Then I'd assign sda3 to an LVM VG, and create LVs within it for the various releases, so I could easily assign/grow/shrink/re-assign disk space to the various releases, and have separate /home/ LV shared amongst them14:38
TJ-demarco: but as you know have a fixed partition drive, you need to put a clean install in /dev/sda1, which means backing up all the important files, configurations, and programs you have there, to another location. If there isn't space in the 14.04 file-system you'll need an external device (maybe a USB mass storage device)14:39
TJ-s/know have/now have/14:40
demarcobut my USB ports are not working?14:41
TJ-demarco: do it from the 14.04 install14:41
TJ-demarco: mount /dev/sda1 inside that to access the files14:42
demarco14.04 cannot detect all the files in 15,.0414:42
demarcothats the issue14:42
TJ-demarco: errr, that makes no sense.14:42
demarcocan I manually mount the external drive via terminal14:42
TJ-demarco: I have to leave now; others can give further advice on accessing files14:43
demarcookay thanks TJ14:44

krcevinaHi. When writing or reading from/to disk via samba, i.e. from another PC, is DMA used during the writing/reading operation?15:41
skinuxI'll talk about it in #linux15:41
k1l_skinux: the issue is, that you need to patch a lot of gnome files for using unity. and on non-ubuntu systems its hard to maintain that patches because its a lot of work. so most other distributions dont ship unity.15:41
skinuxWhat is so different about Unity apps versus non-Unity apps?15:42
skinuxI mean Unity IS Gnome but with no top-panel menus and having the left-side panel15:42
cfhowlettunity is absolutely not gnome15:43
skinuxWell, when I read about Unity it said Unity was built on top of Gnome15:43
k1l_skinux: unity is another gnome-shell. but instead of the gnome-shell (which most people call gnome3) its not using mutter but compiz. and got another arangement of panel and indicators.15:43
truexfan81kinda funny tho, inxi -Sx on unity says its using GTK2 lol15:43

truexfan81nitish: sudo apt-get upgrade16:50
inthl-info says: CPU frequency is 123Mhz (assertet by call to hardware)16:50
truexfan81nitish: that will update all your vlc related stuff to the ppa version16:50
inthlhardware limits: 800 - 2100 Mhz16:50
syntroPiinthl, what does "cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/scaling_governor" say on your system?16:50
hampirpunahSudo apt-get upgrade16:51
hampirpunahSudo apt-get update16:51
nitishtruexfan81: I am wondering that how much data will be needed to upgrade16:51
truexfan81nitish: it will tell you when it asks you to confirm that you want to do it16:51
nitishtruexfan81: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade was alerting for 380 mb. My net speed is not enough for that.16:52
inthlperformance, but that was after I set it manually to performance via cat .. >, but before that it was powersafe16:52
oaulakhanyone know what problem is with pulse audio http://paste.ubuntu.com/13368405/16:52
truexfan81nitish: dist-upgrade is not needed for vlc16:52
chinesesausagewmorri, for example: "sudo ppa-purge kubuntu-default-settings-trinity" ?16:53
oaulakhand my microphone is not working either16:53
wmorrichinesesausage, if that is the name of the ppa then yes16:53
nitishtruexfan81: ok i will run sudo apt-get upgrade. but how to update vlc after it?16:54
BottomNotchI'm having an issue with the android SDK manager.  for some of the packages I'm getting an error.  Download interrupted: Unknown Host dl.google.com: Name or service not known16:54
syntroPiinthl, so the governor is performance and the cpu frequency is still 122 MHz?16:54
chinesesausageno, I do not have have a ppa for that. I installed it by adding the sources16:54
truexfan81nitish: you won't have to, the apt-get upgrade is going to update your vlc for you16:54
chinesesausageand then sudo apt-get install kubuntu-default-settings-trinity16:54
inthlI wonder about that, since cpufreq-info says that the range is 800-2100 anyways, but it is 122-123mhz all the time and works somewhat slow all the time16:55
wmorrichinesesausage, if you just added the sources you can edit your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and then run a purge for the program.16:55
nitishtruexfan81: sudo apt-get upgrade is showing Need to get 416 MB of archives. unable to provide such data :(16:56
oaulakhanyone know what problem is with pulse audio http://paste.ubuntu.com/13368405/16:56
syntroPiinthl, indeed weird behaviour. maybe a thorough investigation of the output of dmesg could hint where the problem is?16:56
truexfan81nitish: ok try sudo apt-get install vlc, see what it says16:56
icerootinthl: sounds like you have a laptop which is not connected to the power line, then the cpu is putting on the energy safe mode16:56
chinesesausageok. Will that remove all of the software TDE added? i.e. Kaffeine, LibreOffice, etc. ?16:57
=== popey_ is now known as popey
nitishtruexfan81: sudo apt-get install vlc is asking for 10 mb. Will it be update after it.16:57
inthlit is connected by wire. but dmesg states: Package temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled16:57
inthlI wonder how overheating could occur at 122mhz.16:57
truexfan81nitish: it should yeah16:57
syntroPiinthl, try cleaning it carefully with a vacuum cleaner to suck out any dust of it16:58
inthland yes, the CPU appears to be hot, the fan is working16:58
HackerIIuse a can of air, not a vacuum, el oh el16:58
=== wook is now known as Guest81637
BluesKajI use both16:59
nitishcan anyone tell me that how can I configure cyberoam in ubuntu?16:59
inthlthis is way too weird. a how cpu, at 122mhz, a working fan, still remains hot, still at 122mhz17:00
HackerIIinthl,  check htop to see whats eating it up17:00
HackerIIgraphics are ok ?17:00
inthltop itself consumes 40% of cpu, since obviously the frequency is just 122mhz17:00
inthlyes, everything else is completely fine17:01
oaulakhi duno why my ubuntu settings not showing somehow :(17:01
HackerIIhuh, maybe at 122mhz the fan isnt running at high speed17:01
chinesesausageok wmorri, I did a "sudo apt-get kubuntu-default-settings-trinity* kubuntu-desktop-trinity*" and it will remove those two apps. For the rest apparently a "sudo apt-get autoremove" will do17:01
syntroPiinthl, you could watch cpu temp with lm-sensors http://askubuntu.com/questions/15832/how-do-i-get-the-cpu-temperature17:02
cgs_bobhello all.  I'm trying to upgrade to 15.04, but the "Distribution Upgrade" program is no longer responding.  What can I do now?17:02
inthlwell, whatever. I have an unusable machine here, and atm it is the live system, the installation takes 1 hour here just to break at the end because of http://askubuntu.com/questions/499845/ubiquity-appears-to-hang-installing-dual-boot-osx - a similar error, but it is about ms windows. there is as usual a software requirement which forces that guy to have windows installed.17:02
MonkeyDustcgs_bob  what version are you in, now... cat /etc/issue17:03
syntroPiinthl, even if the fan works if it wouldnt provide airflow it cant cool the cpu hence my suggestion to remove dust17:03
inthlsyntroPi, I'd have to install lm-sensors as well, no binary here. that could take a while again17:03
inthlthere is air flow, I can feel heat blowing out pretty much good17:03
wildc4rdis there any reason my resolution might not work properly? running a 1920 x 1080 monitor, but if I change to that resolution in settings its 'off the edge of the screen', at 1680 x 1050 it seems to work OK17:03
wmorrichinesesausage, okay17:03
oaulakhi duno why my ubuntu settings not showing somehow :(17:04
cgs_bobMonkeyDust: this is strange.  it says "Ubuntu 15.04 \n \l"17:05
wmorrioaulakh, are you talking about your settings panel?17:06
nitishI am using Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS. Is there any latest version than this of 14.04 lts?17:06
truexfan81nitish: if you were to be able to do apt-get upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade after a reboot you would be running 14.04.317:07
wmorrioaulakh, are you using unity, gnome-shell, kde?17:07
zludeHello! I'm trying to use gsmsendsms over ubuntu 14.04, however I can't find which /dev/??? is mine usb smartphone running on. How can I figure out?17:07
MonkeyDustcgs_bob  then do-release-upgrade should upgrade to 15.10... but it's very slow17:07
oaulakhwhen i remove pulseaudio and alsa-base to get working my microphone after i dunno what happen it make uninstall many other packages too, so now i cant install pulseaudio and can't even open my ubuntu settings17:07
nitishtruexfan81: whats the difference between apt-get upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade?17:08
BottomNotchI'm having an issue with the android SDK manager.  for some of the packages I'm getting an error.  Download interrupted: Unknown Host dl.google.com: Name or service not known17:08
truexfan81nitish: apt-get dist-upgrade installs the newer linux kernels, and other packages that apt-get upgrade holds back17:08
L3owsHello Guys17:09
nitishtruefan81: what should be done first? upgrade or dist-upgrade?17:09
breadmonsterHey. I've got a Lubuntu ISO. How do I burn it to a flash drive?17:09
MonkeyDustbreadmonster  use disk-creator or unetbootin17:10
breadmonsterI'm on Fedora 23, so the Universal USB installer won't work.17:10
cgs_bobMonkeyDust: so should I kill the "Distribution Upgrade" program and try your method?  like I said this program seems to be hosed.  I just see a blank window17:10
truexfan81nitish: i tend to do upgrade first then dist-upgrade17:10
darkhawkHey Guys, running 15.10-x64 on a lenovo thinkpad t450s with intel vga. 2 external monitors (Eizo 23" fullhd), conected by displayport and dvi, booting up the system and everything is fine...dual monitor is running.....after pressing the windowskey+L for locking screen (or clicking in the right corner on lock screen) both screens went black....after some time...a minute or 30 seconds i come back and log-in again only one external monitor is coming17:10
L3owsapt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade17:10
nitishtruefan81: will there would be any bad effect to my currently instlled program?17:10
breadmonsterMonkeyDust: I'm on Fedora.17:10
MonkeyDustbreadmonster  then ask in the fedora channel17:10
truexfan81nitish: they would just be updated to a newer version17:10
rickbhello. I have an alienware laptop and since the latest batch up kernel updates it kernel panics on boot, even when I attempt a complete reinstall, the damn thing kernel panics before a full loadup, I've formatted the usb drive, used dd, unetbootin and liveusb-creator... centos 7 is working for me for now but any ideas?17:10
breadmonsterMonkeyDust: Oh okay, cool, I thought Ubuntu had some binary.17:10
* darkhawk is running 4.2.0-19-generic17:10
k1l_breadmonster: dd works17:11
MonkeyDustbreadmonster  that binary would be useless in fedora17:11
MonkeyDustah, dd, yes17:11
L3owsIs possible run IE8 in ubuntu linux?17:11
nitishtruexfan81: I don't want to go to 15.04 or 15.10. will it changed to these?17:11
truexfan81L3ows: possibly in wine, but why would you want to?17:11
truexfan81nitish: no there is a seperate command to do release upgrades like that17:12
k1l_breadmonster: dd if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdX    where X is the usb, make sure not to use dev/sdx1 or dev/sdx2 or such17:12
L3owstruexfan81, humm.... i look playonlinux by ubuntu17:12
L3owsapt-get install playonlinux17:12
breadmonsterk1l_: Okay, fantastic.17:12
L3owsit is framework from wine to install IE817:12
truexfan81L3ows: playonlinux is a gui for wine but yeah maybe you can install it that way, i've never tried17:13
chinesesausagethank you wmorri17:13
wmorrichinesesausage, your welcome :)17:13
L3owstruexfan81, ok.. i going to testing.. it...17:13
nitishfew years back when I used 10.04 there was screen saver but unable to find it in 14.04. Is there any external application for screen saver?17:13
chinesesausagethanks to people like you, Linux will remain the best17:14
cgs_bobMonkeyDust: so should I kill the "Distribution Upgrade" program and try your method?  like I said this program seems to be hosed.  I just see a blank window17:14
MonkeyDustcgs_bob  you mean a graphical upgrade?17:14
=== ^CJ^ is now known as ^cj^
truexfan81cgs_bob: at the time that it became "hosed" was it still downloading the upgrades or had it started installing?17:15
MonkeyDustcgs_bob  i guess you better backup and fresh install17:15
zludeHello! I'm trying to use gsmsendsms over ubuntu 14.04, however I can't find which /dev/??? is mine usb smartphone running on. How can I figure out?17:16
L3owstruexfan81, yea... i installed... IE8 by playonlinux is successfull running17:16
nitishkostkon: I think there should be any application for that.17:16
cgs_bobMonkeyDust: I did a graphical upgrade.  it downloaded all the packages.  it looked like it started to install.  then it stopped responding17:16
truexfan81cgs_bob: yeah what MonkeyDust said start backing up your data17:17

cgs_bobtruexfan81: I was afraid of that.  will my computer come back up if I put it in suspend mode.  I need to get my computer to work17:18
truexfan81cgs_bob: probably, just make sure it doesn't shut down17:18

TheWardendaynaskully: well there has to be because I downloaded ubuntu from the ubuntu.com and installed via usb. This is the user I got by default.19:06
TheWardenit auto logins to the desktop19:06
TheWardenmmm maybe my mind is going... maybe I was prompted to enter a username mmm but if it did it would have asked for the password as well. crap.19:07
akikTheWarden: not sure what you've installed but you can change the password with "sudo passwd kiosk"19:07
akikTheWarden: from your normal user account19:08
TheWardenmmm sorry me being dumb... I got it working. unreal. so stupid of me.19:08

SlidingHornchr0ma, I actually just did a setup like this today - I had problems with the server version, and the minimal isn't compatible with UEFI (i guess?), so what I ended up doing was installing xubuntu, ripping out any trace of xfce/xfwm, etc, and then installed xdm & openbox19:54

stupid_adminI did rm -rf /etc/davfs2 by mistake; now when I do `sudo apt-get remove davfs2 && sudo apt-get install davfs2` I don't see the configuration file. How do I get back configuration files for davfs2?20:29

Yaiyandaftykins, I think it's obvious what he meant, no need to be pedantic20:30

noeliadaftykins How can I find out about that?20:33

ioriastupid_admin, have you tried with purge ?20:33
OerHeksnoelia, 30MB/s x 8 = 240 mbit .. sounds pretty oke for a 300 mbit wifi adapter20:33

stupid_adminioria: nope, I just tried `sudo apt-get remove davfs2 && sudo apt-get install davfs2`; how do I `purge`?20:33
noeliadaftykins It's a laptop20:34
ioriastupid_admin, replace remove with purge20:34

noeliadaftykins My wi-fi card isn't compatible with Ubuntu 14.04 perhaps?20:38
daftykinsnoelia: 14.04.3 is the current version; so your output above suggests your installation is not up to date; so it'd be handy if you'd run the above commands :)20:39
OerHeksnoelia, it works fine, 30MB/s x 8 = 240 mbit .. sounds pretty oke for a 300 mbit wifi adapter20:39

daftykinsbut i am yet to get a clear answer on that20:39

OerHeksnicomachus, take a look at ClientAliveInterval TCPKeepAlive and ClientAliveCountMax in /etc/ssh/sshd_config20:44

daftykinsnoelia: "lshw -C network" would also be great20:44
nicomachusthanks OerHeks, there now.20:44
stupid_adminioria: strange; groups returns `groups #users sudo afspag-1106262091`20:45
nicomachusOerHeks: ClientAliveInterval and ClientAliveCountMax aren't in the file. TCPKeepAlive is set to "yes"20:46

daftykinsnoelia: no, updating to 14.04.3 with the latest kernel and software packages20:51

BottomNotchWiFi, I can go on wired LAN if I need to though.21:25

noeliadaftykins But internet speed used to be high with Ubuntu 15.0421:34

daftykinsnoelia: one way or another, you need to get up to date.21:34
daftykinsnoelia: running an older ubuntu is not going to make your computer any faster in games though21:35
noeliadaftykins If not 14.04.3... which Ubuntu version do I have installed in my computer?21:36
nicomachusdaftykins: that actually depends on the game... if it's in Wine, sometimes 14.04 is going to be better than 15.1021:36

daftykinsnoelia: sounds like your wired interface doesn't even have an IP21:48
noeliadaftykins That's right, it doesn't even get an IP via DHCP21:48
daftykinsnoelia: do you have access to another computer? it'd make life a lot easier to just download 14.04.3 and get it installed on there21:48
ich_daftykins, yes. I don't know why I am not a guest any more :) is it ok if it prints something like "building for 3.19 and 4.3... building init module for 3.19" ?21:49

timg___thanks, i am going to take a look22:18
BottomNotchDaftykins: yeah, I can see that. I wonder if I would have these issues if I hadn't purged unity after installing xfce22:19
ich_daftykins, mby. I installed the 4.3 kernel. inside the "additional dirvers" window I selected the nvidia (proprietary, tested) driver. after a restart and a black screen I purged nvidia*. after that I tried nvidia-352... purged it... so yes I think so22:19
OerHeks..good to tell that afterwards.. removing unity22:20
daftykinsBottomNotch: ah. didn't know that part :D22:20
daftykinsOerHeks: +122:20
daftykinsich_: oh and that's it? odd. i don't think the Lenovos tend to play ball with hybrid graphics so much. can you share a "dmesg" ?22:21
BottomNotchDaftykins: yeah it just now occured to me to mention that22:21

zidsalI've got another quick question. I've installed ubuntu on my dell xps and there is a known issue where you cannot get internet on it until you install bcmwl-kernel-source. However when I try and install the .deb files I get errors. I was wodnering if anyone knew an alternative way I could quickly get internet e.g. via my phone? so I can install the file from apt-get22:59
hubbunnydaftykins perhaps thats the issue, I followed a guide using usbinstaller to set the usbdrive as bootable. should I do it a different way to avoid using the Wubi.exe?22:59
daftykinsbprompt: no it already has 4 is the point, already got this one in hand :)22:59
daftykinshubbunny: well you need to restart out of Windows and then boot the PC from that flash drive - is that what you did, or?23:00
hubbunnydaftykins yes thats what I did23:00
Bashing-omthe_count: I jere too .. OK.. We clean up the /boot partition . We want to keep the kernel that the touchpad is compatible with . Do you know which it is ?23:00
daftykinshubbunny: it'd be handy if you could come back on here to run a few commands from ubuntu - you can use webchat if you're not already to get on here23:00
the_countBashing-om: Is there any way we can get a list of installed kernels so I don't have to shut down and restart again?23:01
pilnehas anyone gotten steam to work without command line fuckery in 15.10 yet?23:01
hubbunnydaftykins, I'm using xchat so I can switch to web. So if I simply select try ubuntu vs install will that work?23:02
daftykinshubbunny: yeah it'll start a live session to work from23:02

bpromptzidsal:    http://ftp.psu.ru/linux/ubuntu/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl/   <---- you could try installing manually, the 6.30 would be the lastest one, use that and do a -> sudo dpkg -i YOURFILE.deb <- to install it23:03

cheetahw26I'm upgrading some custom software from ubuntu 12 to 14, but it seems a lot of the packages we were using are not available... is there a way to add the old repository to install some of them?23:06
hubbunnydaftykins: Back in live session now23:07
daftykinshubbunny: if you run the terminal program, "sudo parted -l | nc termbin.com 9999" will produce a link to share here23:07
the_countBashing-om: The origional and working kernel is 3.16.0-30-generic and current is 3.19.0-33-generic23:07
hubbunnydaftykins: http://termbin.com/qtlz23:08
bpromptcheetahw26:    I'd say nope, can you include the old repository? yes, will the package work with new libraries in 14? nope, the older apps may require specific versions of the library, and the 14 install may have a newer version, or may do without it since it's functionality may have been grouped onto another lib23:09
zidsalsweet got it working via usb tethering23:09
daftykinshubbunny: mmm so it is indeed as you feared, you'll either need to backup your data; try using a GUI partition tool on ubuntu there to delete partition 2 and then move the resulting ones back to the front of the drive so you only have 3, or just wipe the lot and start from scratch23:09
daftykinshubbunny: you might have a factory recovery disc set to burn to DVD / create ISO files from on that Windows install from that current 21.5GB partition 2.23:10
daftykinshubbunny: though personally i just clean install from official vanilla windows 7 media23:11
Bashing-omthe_count: K; so we need a list of what is installed . ' dpkg -l | grep linux- ' and we then remove old kernels.23:11
hubbunnydaftykins: hmm ok thanks for looking. I presume I can just download a win7 iso and install fresh and ubuntu after23:12

the_countBashing-om: Good, and do you know at the moment how to speed the pointer up, this is very handicapping.. It is at max in settings, although it may be a part of the xorg problems we were dealing with, I would suppect it is as with the origional kernel, the pointer is at normal speed23:26
Bashing-omthe_count: Ouch .. see this "rc  linux-image-extra-3.16.0-30-generic" the start of the problem . where 'rc' is removed - yeah thge kernel that works ! but config files remian . When we can we will RE-Install this one .23:26
the_countBashing-om: What does that mean/imply?23:27
Bashing-omthe_count: As to the pointer . must be in the settings for the touchpad, that at this time you can not access .. - my best guess - .23:27

AlexQHi. After upgrading to Xubuntu 15.10, booting freezes after some time. However, I can successfully boot into Recovery mode, and from there boot even further to desktop, although with an enormous number of "System problem detected" windows on top of one another that are there from the very beginning.23:33
AlexQSo, I guess a good starting point would be checking the boot log from the normal boot. How can I do that? When booting normally, the splash screen freezes and I can't switch to another vterm usint Ctrl+Alt+Fn23:33
Guy1524hey guys, so I uninstalled bumblebee today and now I cant use my gtx 960m23:35
the_countBashing-om: And, there is another couple ' rc ' further down the list as well23:35

telldrakSo, I'm relatively new to Ubuntu, but have managed to sort out a lot on my own. I've got to a point where I could use some assistance. I have a web-server running on Ubuntu 14.04 on Digital Ocean, and have Apache2/MySQL/PHP5 on it. I am trying to get sendmail set up for it. I have three domains running, and need to get mail going for two of them23:39
bpromptAlexQ:    I'd think it'd be at /etc/X11/Xorg.0.log    which IIRC you can just get by using "dmesg"23:39
telldrakI'd greatly appreciate some resources if you have some that you think would be helpful23:40
Bashing-omthe_count: Look'n at http://paste.ubuntu.com/13378229/ . yeah .. just substitute the correct version version number . should be clear at this point fot the 'rc' kernels .23:41
AlexQmicronottee: I don't think so, it uses standard input/output mostly, so limited by the filesystem I guess23:41
bprompttelldrak:     did you mean to post that at #ubuntu-server ?23:42
AlexQbprompt: Nothing there. I think Xorg logs are somewhere else. What is IIRC?23:42
