WelshmanHi everyone 'in' this room. Also, I am a 'new' Linux Mint. But I do have a question about/on PlayDeb, the unofficial Ubuntu games website. My question is: Are the games from PlayDeb safe? Or....Is it safe to download games from the PlayDeb website? Thanks.  :)00:13

Jordan_UMWM: What practical problem are you having?00:15
WelshmanBen64: Yes, I know that. My question is about/on PlayDeb, the unofficial Ubuntu games website! Thanks. :)00:15
slavka`hey guys... if im root, whats the diff between just running a command and running it with sudo prefix? e.g. sudo npm install... and npm install...00:16
Ben64Welshman: unofficial = not supported here00:16
Jordan_Uslavka`: Usually nothing, but you shouldn't log in as root, and even running a root shell is often a bad idea.00:17
bpromptslavka`:    dunno, but I'd think none, sudo is to run as superuser, but "root" is already a superuser, so I'd think the shell will run it, though neverminding the "sudo" part anyway00:18
WelshmanBen64: If that is the case then why is it listed on the Ubuntu website? Also, if you do not mind, I will wait for some else to answer/reply to my "Are the games from PlayDeb safe?" etc! Thanks again. :)00:18

foul_owlLooks like I have isc-dhcp-client installed01:08

foul_owlDo you know how to view active dhcp leases with that package?01:09
daftykinsi'd bet its' logs would be handy01:09
foul_owlHmmmm I can't find any reference to dhcp in /var/log/01:11

foul_owlI was trying "man dhcp" and "man dhcp-client"01:13
daftykinsfoul_owl: should be pretty obvious if any leases have been issued since you've only just set it up and configured it, presumably...01:14

lotuspsychje!info playonlinux | futurama140 sudo apt-get install playonlinux02:59
ubottufuturama140 sudo apt-get install playonlinux: playonlinux (source: playonlinux): front-end for Wine. In component multiverse, is optional. Version 4.2.6-1 (wily), package size 957 kB, installed size 3241 kB02:59
Guest_SeriouslyLaugh: yeah it says that it is a fatal error02:59
OerHeksfuturama140, that old game was that resolution http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/AGI02:59
SeriouslyLaughGuest_ do you happen to have any more information on the error? like are you able to type exactly what it says?02:59
VictoriaXOXOSeriouslyLaugh: I've read that thread, but it's from 2003 and the more updated ones are all using different methods. Hmm.02:59
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: What do you mean?02:59
somsipVictoriaXOXO: and the one I pasted from ubuntu with lots of upvotes?03:00
VictoriaXOXOsomsip: Yes, well, I've seen like 83 different variations of that text line.03:00
futurama140yea i know, but 320x200 is the size of like 4 icons togethr on my screen i need to scale it up so i can actually see it03:00
somsipVictoriaXOXO: did any of them work?03:00
Ben64VictoriaXOXO: iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -i eth0 -j DROP03:00
Guest_SeriouslyLaugh: it says "Executing 'Grub-Install /dev/sda' failed thats it03:00
VictoriaXOXOsomsip: Well, I don't know which one to test. I don't even know how to check for ICMP requests after trying one of them. XD03:01
daftykinsVictoriaXOXO: if you're behind a NAT router, only devices on your local network can hit your host with ICMP queries.03:01
Ben64VictoriaXOXO: then why do you want to block them?03:01
daftykinsBen64: paranoid user that reads things then instantly wants to stop them, happened a lot in the last week or so03:01
somsipVictoriaXOXO: test them all, figure out why you're doing what you're doing otherwise the whole point is moot.03:01
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: This one has nothing to do with paranoia.03:01
Ben64"If you don't know what it's for, don't mess with it" is my philosophy03:02
daftykinsVictoriaXOXO: oh, do tell03:02
VictoriaXOXOBen64: So if a dentist suggests something to you under an operation, and you don't know what it means, you decline? XD03:02
SeriouslyLaughsorry, how is this ubuntu related?03:02
Guest_SeriouslyLaugh: was that for me?03:03
Ben64in that scenario, the dentist is messing with it, and I'd hope he knows what it's for03:03
somsipSeriouslyLaugh: the original query was, but you're right - theory and reasoning is off topic03:03
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: http://pastebin.com/RbVRmRqn03:03
Ben64VictoriaXOXO: doesn't answer the "why?"03:03
SeriouslyLaughGuest_ I don't have any personal experience with that error, but googling it gave me a few forums where people had a similar error and some people posted replies to help them solve it03:03
SeriouslyLaughi can't vouch for any of these links but here is one: http://askubuntu.com/questions/459620/unable-to-install-grub-in-dev-sda-when-installing-grub03:04
VictoriaXOXOBen64: You never follow recommendations from the people that wrote the software you want to use?03:04
Ben64VictoriaXOXO: and turning icmp off on your computer won't affect your router at all03:04
daftykinsVictoriaXOXO: who provided this...03:04
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Pre_Install_Advice#Linux03:05
daftykinsBen64: i think this is more for a VPN VictoriaXOXO uses, again from the paranoia angle03:05
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: Nothing to do with a VPN.03:05
VictoriaXOXOStop spreading FUD.03:05
VictoriaXOXOI just proved you 100% wrong. Lol.03:05
daftykinsthen as i say, ICMP doesn't leap past the router03:06
somsipVictoriaXOXO: and whonix has it's own IRC channel so ask there https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Support03:06
VictoriaXOXOdaftykins: Oh, you always know best. :)03:06
VictoriaXOXOsomsip: Okay. :)03:06
daftykinswell, i understand what ICMP is if that's what you mean...03:06
timmo123Hi lotuspsychje update03:09
lotuspsychjetimmo123: did you got in?03:09
timmo123I followed the recovery mode guide and I now have a terminal open03:09
lotuspsychjetimmo123: from the recoverymode you should choose 'fix broken packages' not the terminal03:10
timmo123Oh, well it didn't quite happen the way the page said03:11
daftykinslotuspsychje: quick disk remount as rw first, no? :)03:11
daftykins<-- hasn't been following so feel free to ignore03:11
timmo123After I chose the recovery mode option it just booted me into terminal03:11
AcidRaini have a linksys wifi adapter, its not showing up in ifconfig. but it is listed in lsusb03:11
AcidRainhow can i solve this issue?03:11
lotuspsychjedaftykins: he upgraded trusty to 15.04 somehow, we testing if we can repair before clean :p03:12
syeekickwww.pastebin.com/2a9M0Hhd      I removed open ssh totally with apt-get purge and i still get this "ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host" error. I've tried googling but it keeps pointing to the same resoultion which simply does not work. Can someone help me please03:12
lotuspsychjetimmo123: reboot again into the recovery and try 'fix broken packages' its an option03:12
syeekickits over a local network and im trying to ssh to my ubuntu machine03:12
timmo123Ok I'll try it again03:13
daftykinssyeekick: your ~/.ssh will have remained.03:13
lotuspsychjeAcidRain: sudo lshw -C network shows driver= ?03:13
syeekicki figured purge would of got rid of them too :-(03:13
lotuspsychjeAcidRain: ubuntu version?03:14
AcidRainlotuspsychje, im on kali03:15
timmo123So first I hit shift which put me into the grub menu, then I selected advanced options, then recovery mode, then there's loading, then it asks for the passphrase to decrypt the disk (I have disk encryption), after that it loads daemons services etc03:15
lotuspsychje!kali | AcidRain03:15

timmo123Some fail to load, most load ok03:15
lotuspsychjetimmo123: why did you upgrade to 15.04 exactly?03:16
RonWhoCaresI am getting a VLC error in the video     An Error Occurred   Could not demuliplex stream'03:17
lotuspsychjeRonWhoCares: after doing what03:17
RonWhoCareslotuspsychje: Trying to record a video03:17
RonWhoCaresThen I was playing back the video03:18
timmo123Now it's at the login prompt03:18
lotuspsychjeRonWhoCares: you have the right graphics drivers enabled?03:18
RonWhoCareslotuspsychje: I honestly don't know.03:18
lotuspsychjeRonWhoCares: you can check perhaps03:18
timmo123Nothing came up with a fix broken packages option03:18
syeekickyeah still no luck03:19
syeekicki don't know what im doing :(03:19
RonWhoCareslotuspsychje: I am able to play other videos; just not what is recorded through VLC03:19
timmo123Lotuspsychje: the machine hadn't been updated in a while, it prompted for an update to 15.04 along with other updates, I said yes03:19
RonWhoCareslotuspsychje: Yes, the correct graphic driver is enabled03:21
lotuspsychjetimmo123: then you was on 14.10?03:21
timmo123No, I was on 14.04, pretty sure03:21
daftykinsRonWhoCares: install mediainfo and run it with "mediainfo -all <your file>" then put that in a paste on http://paste.ubuntu.com03:22
lotuspsychjetimmo123: did you see options like these: http://www.hecticgeek.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/recovery-mode-options-in-Ubuntu-12.04.jpg03:22
timmo123No, nothing like that03:22
timmo123That menu never came up03:22
lotuspsychjeRonWhoCares: do you play them with vlc03:22
timmo123It went straight from selecting recovery mode in grub to login03:22
lotuspsychjetimmo123: if recoverymode cant get you in, i strongly advise you clean install mate03:23
timmo123Is there a way I can run it from that terminal?03:23
lotuspsychjetimmo123: you can try several things like updating your system to latest03:23
RonWhoCareslotuspsychje: Yes, I am able to play videos through VLC03:24
lotuspsychjetimmo123: sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade, see if that brings you further03:24
lotuspsychjeRonWhoCares: but not the ones you recorded?03:24
timmo123Ok, I'll try that03:24
RonWhoCareslotuspsychje: Correct03:25
lotuspsychjeRonWhoCares: what extension the video have? .mkv?03:25
RonWhoCareslotuspsychje: It has come up with .avi03:26
syeekickis there a way i can reset my ssh config files to default?03:26
lotuspsychjeRonWhoCares: try what daftykins suggested03:26
daftykins.avi is a video container format, it provides no indication of the codecs used within for audio and video - thus the mediainfo output is needed.03:26
daftykinssyeekick: rename .ssh to .sshold03:27
RonWhoCareslotuspsychje: I was working on this steps while answering your questions03:28
RonWhoCaresdaftykins: This is the paste  http://paste.ubuntu.com/13499110/03:28
syeekickmv /etc/ssh/ssh_config ssh_old   will that do it?03:30
daftykinsRonWhoCares: have you installed "ubuntu-restricted-extras" ?03:30
RonWhoCaresno; I am now installing it03:31
RonWhoCaresdaftykins: Done03:32
daftykinsnow close and reopen VLC and try playing the file again03:33
daftykinsactually i don't know why i said that since VLC won't use what was installed :D03:33
RonWhoCaresdaftykins: I still have that same error.  DO I need to reboot?03:33
daftykinsone moment03:34
syeekickdaftykins, did you look at the paste bin?03:34
daftykinssyeekick: why did you have something to add?03:34
syeekicki don't see why im getting the same error after reinstalling ssh and deleting all configs03:36
timmo123Lotuspsychje: no dice, it says network is unreachable for no reason I can figure out since it's weird03:37
daftykinssyeekick: oh did you paste? didn't see one. "mv ~/.ssh ~/.sshold" .03:37
timmo123Can't ping
timmo123I'm gonna reinstall I think03:37
lotuspsychjetimmo123: did you choose terminal with network support03:37
timmo123Oh, that would be a reason03:37
timmo123Again there were no options03:38
daftykinsRonWhoCares: open a terminal and try "vlc --rawvid-fps 24 --rawvid-width 640 --rawvid-height 480 --rawvid-chroma I422 ~/Videos/Webcam/vlc-record-2015-11-24-22h16m02s-v4l2____dev_video0-.avi"03:38
lotuspsychjetimmo123: right, clean install and make your life easy03:38
timmo123After I selected recovery mode it dumped me into a terminal03:38
lotuspsychjetimmo123: and make the right choice between lts or non-lts03:38
timmo123Thanks for the help03:38
HackerIIgo for 15.1003:38
syeekickhttp://pastebin.com/2a9M0Hhd    yeah this paste bin <03:38
HackerIIit rox03:38
lotuspsychjetimmo123: you never told me why you moved from 14.04?03:38
timmo123Well it probably would have been fine if the machine had been used03:39
Abehello I have a little problem. youtube does not work fullscreen anymore. it's in a wrong resolution since a new firefox update. It now looks like this http://www0.xup.in/exec/ximg.php?fid=89243075 have the html5 player03:39
Bashing-omtimmo123: Networking : ' systemctl enable NetworkManager.service ; systemctl start NetworkManager.service ' .03:39
daftykinssyeekick: oh you've messed with /etc/ssh/ssh_config huh? it's pointing at line 19... i suggest you... look at line 19.03:39
timmo123Lotuspsychje: I haven't used the machine in maybe a year, I'm used to .04 being lts and .10 volatile03:40
daftykinsLTS is only every 2 years :) 14.04 + 16.0403:40
timmo123It prompted me for a ton of updates including 15.04, I figured it was the next lts and hit yes for all03:40
syeekickyeah it says host03:40
daftykinssyeekick: that's useless to me03:40
RonWhoCaresdaftykins: That works.03:41
daftykinsRonWhoCares: \o/03:41
daftykinsaudio too?03:41
daftykinsRonWhoCares: may i ask what webcam created this?03:41
daftykinsand what application03:41
RonWhoCaresThe web cam is the built in HP G6103:42
RonWhoCaresThe video was made by VLC Media Player03:42
daftykinsah ok03:42
daftykinsoh of course, the file name *facepalm*03:42
daftykins'raw' is definitely a bad choice :)03:42
RonWhoCaresWhat would you suggest I use03:42
timmo123Bashing-om: no such file or directory03:42
daftykinsRonWhoCares: i don't have a clue what VLC offers you03:43
syeekickahh shit03:43
daftykinssyeekick: inappropriate language03:43
syeekicksorry about that03:43
syeekickim looking through my bash history and it seems i put "rm -r ssh/"as one of my commands out of frustration03:44
daftykinswell ssh/ isn't a path03:44
syeekickseems my /etc/ssh directory has gone03:45
Bashing-omtimmo123: 15.04 init is systemd .. those are systemd commands to start networking .. recon you are still on upstart ?03:46
daftykinssyeekick: "dpkg -l | grep ssh | nc termbin.com 9999"03:47
timmo123It said 15.04 when booting, but it's in recovery mode with a maybe failed upgrade from 14.04 to 15.0403:47
Bashing-omtimmo123: ' ps -p1 | grep systemd && echo systemd || echo upstart ' see if you are now systemd or upstart .03:48
timmo123You're right, it says upstart03:49
syeekicki put that and it says http://terminbin.com/act403:50
timmo123I found an old install disk that I think is 14.0403:50
timmo123I'm gonna try it03:50
Bashing-omtimmo123: I realy think best at this time to do a clean fresh install .. as you failed to make the translation of the system over to systemd . BUT I could be wrong .03:51
timmo123Bashing-om: Yeah fair enough03:51
timmo123I didn't think I had an install disk before but turns out I did i think03:51
daftykinssyeekick: "sudo apt-get purge openssh-client openssh-server openssh-sftp-server && sudo apt-get clean" then ensure /etc/ssh/ is empty; then reinstall them03:52
syeekickE: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code 103:54
syeekickwait i'll get a screen shot03:55
daftykinssyeekick: no, we don't screenshot text... we pastebin it03:56
daftykinsthough imgur may have popularised images of text being the norm, it's wrong ;)03:56
syeekicki would lol but its on  my headless machien that now has a head03:57
syeekickmy hands were shaking04:00
syeekickhttps://imgur.com/24fiJsn  much better picutre daftykins04:03
syeekickok /etc/ssh is empty but looking at the output of that command it seems nothing was removed or uninstalled04:04
daftykinssyeekick: you know, such situations are easy - you see the part where it fails so you just satisfy those issues then re-run.04:04
daftykinsso what's it saying? /etc/ssh doesn't exist... so i'd create it04:05
daftykinsthat will satisfy the removal script04:05
=== strictlyb is now known as sb
k1l_workaround: just create a /etc/ssh/04:05

syeekickok sweet04:14
syeekickim on track04:14
syeekickok they are all installed and still getting the same error on my client box04:18
daftykinsright but you're meant to move the ~/.ssh on the client end right04:19
syeekickoh i did that on the server end04:19
streamitAll of you suck especially k1l_!! Ubuntu needs to stop pretending it's not Linux! Ubuntu needs to stop being adware for Amazon! Ubuntu sends everything you type in Unity to Canonical! Ubuntu spies on you more than Windows!04:20
syeekickwell that told us04:23
syeekickdaftykins thanks for all your help04:25
syeekickno but i can't bug you anymore it's not fair04:25
daftykinswell at least provide a fresh pastebin so someone knows04:26

Valforhey guys, after performing an upgrade from ubuntu 15.04 -> 15.10, during the upgrade (and since), any pip3 installs crash, as well as apt-get commands, with a KeyError:'_convert' in enum34 as per http://paste.ubuntu.com/13499615/04:32
ValforI've tried reinstalling relevant packages, tried install enum with pip, tried reinstalling pip, etc. Does anyone have any further suggestions? I'd appreciate it :)04:33
daftykinsValfor: i'd boot live media, chroot into your install and then dpkg-reconfigure -a04:34
Valfordaftykins: no worries, I'll check it out - thanks04:35
Valforwasn't sure if it was a conflict 3.4 and 3.5 conflict04:35
Valforpython 3.4, and 3.5 **04:35
daftykinsdoes look like it's complaining over that a bit04:35
ValforI'll try it out and see how we go :) I was thinking of removing 3.4, and just going with 3.504:35
syeekickhttp://pastebin.com/2a9M0Hhd  this is the problem that occurs when i run ssh in verbose mode04:35

SentientTootsieRHey All. I'm running a teamspeak 3 server and I got it up and running originally and everything was fine. Since I want the server to execute on startup, I added a crontab -e entry for it. Not, it says the server is running but I can't connect to it for some reason. Any ideas?05:10
twankcan ya ping it?05:11
SentientTootsieRI can connect to the http server no problem05:11
twankmaybe something missing from the cron job?05:12
twankwhat happens if you delete the crom job?05:12
SentientTootsieRI was able to connect to the ts3 server earlier, no i cant suddenly.. hold on, i'll post what I put in the crontab thing05:12
SentientTootsieR@reboot /var/ts/teamspeak3-server_linux-amd64/ts3server_startscript.sh start05:12
daftykinsis this from their own docs of how to do it?05:13
SentientTootsieRnot sure if var is a good place to put it, but i figured it would be05:13
SentientTootsieRkinda.. http://forum.teamspeak.com/threads/67834-How-To-install-TeamSpeak-3-0-0-Server-CentOS05:13
SentientTootsieRit says centos, but there's a section for debian based distros05:14
daftykinscheck the server is listening with "netstat -tuln"05:14

SentientTootsieRhere: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13499906/05:16
SentientTootsieRhmm, let me check something05:16
SentientTootsieRyeah, thats why i love ubuntu. so many helpful people ;)05:16
SentientTootsieRlike you guys, lol05:16
daftykinstwank: we can fix that too ;)05:16
SentientTootsieRi see some of the ts3 ports listed, but not all. for example, voice uses port 9987, but it's not listed. i see 3033 which IS a ts3 port and it's lasted. how confusing :O05:17
daftykinsso your client should have connection logs05:18
SentientTootsieRit was working a moment ago05:18
daftykinskill the ts process then invoke that script manually to test05:18
SentientTootsieRit's saying that it started, but crashed and i need to find a ts log file... hold on05:21
daftykinsyou did kill the existing first right? if you didn't they'll be port binding errors.05:21
SentientTootsieRyeah, i did "kill 681", 681 being the proccess i believe05:22
SentientTootsieRsuppose i could reboot just to be safe05:22
SentientTootsieRok so i removed it from the cronjob and started it manually and it worked o_o05:26
SentientTootsieRand for some reason, i cant view the logs05:26

daftykinspackages.ubuntu.com <-- download them.06:09
daftykinssnag all the deps too06:09
lotuspsychjenitish: you need to get online first to download something06:09
nitishlotspsychje: I can download with ms windows.06:10
lotuspsychjenitish: then see the url daftykins provided06:10

SentientTootsieRnit, what version of ubunt are you running?06:12
daftykinsthere always is06:12
goddardone of my USB ports isn't recognized.06:12
daftykinsgrep your dmesg for any "hci" errors06:12
joeytwiddlei don't think it's that easy to get all the dependencies for wine while you are in windows. it will depend what you have already installed on your Ubuntu.06:13
daftykinsit's easy with the packages.ubuntu.com page06:13
dionysus69hello everyone, I am troubleshooting hibernation with sudo program running, so I noticed that if I leave sudo program running and hibernate, the system hangs on resume. The reason I have sudo program running is I am accessing raw disk using virtualbox, it is a vmdk file couple KB big pointing to the whole SSD. how can I change permissions in order to use that vmdk file without sudo? It needed to be created using sudo so if I chown to the curr06:14
SentientTootsieRyeah it's right here: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ubuntu/ppa/+packages06:14
SentientTootsieRyou just have to search by your ubuntu version06:14
daftykinsand grab all deps06:14
nitishHow can I run 32-bit application from my 64-bit system?06:15
joeytwiddleif i was nitish i would get VirtualBox and use that to boot up Ubuntu, and do the install while still in Windows/AOL06:15
daftykinslike what06:15
daftykinsjoeytwiddle: lot more work for a simple task06:15
daftykinsi'd fix the ubuntu wireless driver so there's no 'bandwidth' problem myself ;)06:15
SentientTootsieRdion, i dont believe you can change permission on a file without sudo06:16
joeytwiddlenitish, install ia32-libs (and maybe ia32-libs-gtk and ia32-libs-sdl)06:16
futurama140hey guys, im having some odd issues:06:16

SentientTootsieRbit im helping other people instead lol06:17

FlechasHey guys, quick question. Long story short, I'd like to know how can I revert to Nouveau from recovery. from the command line. Basically i'd like to try to switch to nvidia proprietary drivers and last time it wouldn't get past the purple screen. any way to boot into recovery and revert to Nouveau driver?06:18
SentientTootsieRjoey, try "dpkg --add-architecture i386" firsty06:18
lotuspsychjeFlechas: recoverymode/fix broken packages can help06:18
lotuspsychjeFlechas: or manually remove nvidia driver and reinstall nouveau06:19
Flechasbut I can do all that from recovery, right?06:19
daftykinsFlechas: sudo apt-get purge nvidia*06:19
lotuspsychjeFlechas: if things go right yes06:19
FlechasI'll google how to do that. Basically I want to try all the different drivers and see which one works best, but last time I tried, I couldn't find a way aroaund. eded up reinstallind. that takes too long :P06:20
daftykinswhat card do you have?06:20
lotuspsychjeFlechas: ubuntu version and card chipset?06:20
daftykinsversion chasing is pretty pointless06:20
Flechasthere might be something else to the problem as well. I'm dualbooting osx and ubuntu06:21
daftykinson a mac or...06:21
Flechas15.10 Geforce GT 330M06:21
futurama140hello? am i connected?06:21
SentientTootsieRcould be some propietary apple bs interfering06:22
Flechasnaaa, just dualbooting with Refind06:22
OerHeksSentientTootsieR this is wrong > joey, try "dpkg --add-architecture i386" as ubuntu is already multiarch06:22
futurama140oi. i have no idea if my question even posted because i keep getting DCed06:22
SentientTootsieRThen maybe he needs to add something to the repository?06:22
Flechasalso, its a mid 2010 and the GPU messes up with the logicboard already in osx. thats why I installed ubuntu. couldn't take the crashes anymore :P06:22
joeytwiddlemaybe you don't want to use hardware accelerated drivers at all!06:23
futurama140i hope this isnt spamming06:24
Flechasthats correct as well. maybe I don't. it just adds new pretty features :P06:24
Flechasit would be nice. just want to try and revert easy06:24
joeytwiddlefuturama140, none of us can hear you :(06:24
joeytwiddlefuturama140, j/k.  we didn't see your odd issue, just that you had one ;)06:24
daftykinsFlechas: then it's got hardware issues, an OS Isn't going to avoid that06:24
futurama140im in a hotel, and using a laptop with 14.04 and a monopiece wireless N adapter06:25
futurama140my wifi is intermitent at best06:25
futurama140the router is a netgear home router ssid: NETGEAR60 and is located probably 50 feet away06:25
futurama140when i try plugging the usb wifi into a usb extension cord it will not connect to the network at all.06:25
futurama140neither the pie tin parabolic antenna nor a pringles cantenna are boosting my signal at all, most likely because i just get no connection period when the wifi is on a usb extension06:25
futurama140anyone have any idea why im getting any of these problems?06:25
joeytwiddlethat is spamming though.  the bot says so!06:25
SentientTootsieRyeah looks like your hotel's shitty wifi can't transmit anything quickly enough06:25
daftykinsyes, cheap USB extension = can't provide enough power06:25
daftykins!language | SentientTootsieR06:25
ubottuSentientTootsieR: The main Ubuntu channels require that you speak in calm, polite English. For other languages, please visit https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList06:25
Flechasdaftykins: I hear you, but so far it has done just that. when I'm on OSX, it crashes at very specific instances (certain websites, external monitor conect), but in Ubuntu, I'm just hanging out. no crashes. its great06:26
daftykinsspeed has nothing to do with signal.06:26
Flechasnow it would be nice to use the extra features of the GPU06:26
joeytwiddleoooh there was a command i used to send to our dodgy WiFi USB to tell it to draw less power06:26
futurama140is there any way to work around this?06:26
daftykinsless power is just going to make the signal weaker ¬_¬06:26
daftykinsyes buy a better adapter06:27
daftykinsFlechas: not sure if so ancient a chip can be used with prime, you'll need nvidia-331 or newer with nvidia-prime installed06:27
SentientTootsieRit might. have you used public wifi? it sucks06:27
Flechassomething like that I've been reading online. yessss06:27
joeytwiddledaftykins, in our case it stopped the device from failing altogether06:27
futurama140i tried increasing the power to the usb wifi to "30" (whatever that means) but the hardware wont allow it06:28
futurama140im having the same issues with my cyanogenmod nook tablet as well.06:28
daftykinssounds more like you're talking about disabling power management, not reducing power06:28
daftykinsfuturama140: move room...06:28
daftykinsi really don't see how anything OS based can do anything for you06:28
SentientTootsieRask the front desk person to reset the router?06:28
futurama140daftykins: yea i wish06:29
joeytwiddlefuturama140, i think this was the command we used.  try out less imo.  http://askubuntu.com/questions/328418/how-to-increase-power-of-wifi-adapter06:29
daftykinswhat's so dream requiring about changing a room o006:29
joeytwiddledaftykins, it worked.  i was there.  you weren't.  :P06:29
daftykinsjoeytwiddle: well that's nice06:29
daftykinsunfortunately anecdotal evidence is worth 0 in the real world06:29
futurama140my hotel is packed06:30
futurama140its where parole puts people who just got out of prison so its always packed06:30
SentientTootsieRif it's anecdotal, is it really evidence?06:30
OerHeksmessing with txpower does not work that way.06:30
futurama140sure, just not scientifically accredited evidence06:30
ApteryxIs Nautilus using samba to connect to smb:// adresses? I tried using the "Connect to server" button to connect to a Windows share, and it always fail with: Unhandled error message: Failed to mount Windows share: Invalid argument06:31
functionoverformmessing with txpower via a power supply and homemade antenna on the other hand...06:31
ApteryxBut if I try on the command line using smbclient, it works!06:31
daftykinsApteryx: did you type smb://IP address/sharename ?06:31
Apteryxdaftykins: I used the domain name06:31
daftykinsyou mean host name?06:32
ApteryxBut I did try using the IP, and got the same error. I'll try again just to make sure.06:32
Apteryxdaftykins: yes, sorry, host name.06:32
SentientTootsieRWould \\hostname\folder work?06:32
SentientTootsieRjust a guess06:32
ApteryxSentientTootsieR: Actually I have no choice to use a folder, because the root is restricted.06:32
daftykinswell, wrong direction slashes and i don't think nautilus behaves like explorer on Windows, no06:32
futurama140joeytwiddle: Error for wireless request "Set Tx Power" (8B26) :06:33
futurama140    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not permitted.06:33
SentientTootsieRah ok06:33
Apteryxdaftykins: the annoying part is I have to leave irssi to test (VPN on a network that blocks irc port... duh)06:33
daftykinsyou have to create a registry key called LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy and set it to '1' on win7+ to allow users to auth remotely against admin shares such as host/c$06:33
daftykinsnot that i've memorised that or anything... *whistle*06:34
Apteryxdaftykins: OK, but this is a corporate network, I cannot change the settings freely :)06:34
Apteryxdaftykins: the strange thing is I could connect using smbclient.06:34
daftykinshow come you're file sharing then o006:34
daftykinswell you could just mount it via CLI06:35
Apteryxdaftykins: What do you mean. The drive is there. I'm supposed to be able to access it as long as I have valid credentials. I don't think I read I had to use Windows exclusively to access it anywhere.06:35
daftykinssudo mount -t cifs //IP/share /mnt -o username=blah,password=blah,iocharset=utf806:35
daftykinssudo mount -t cifs //IP/share /mnt -o username=blah,password=blah,iocharset=utf8,uid=1000,gid=100006:36
daftykinsah well it's your job not mine :>06:36
Apteryxhaha, OK, let me try that. But do you know what Nautilus is doing under the hood? I'd like to understand why it fails... I'm not even sure what logs it would output to.06:37
futurama140no way to make my wifi better then, eh?06:37
daftykinsfuturama140: doubt it's the OS's fault06:37
daftykinsmove room or buy a better adapter06:37
daftykinsApteryx: does nautilus even get as far as prompting for login details?06:38
Apteryxdaftykins: yes06:39
daftykinsand you enter DOMAIN\username and password?06:39
Apteryxdaftykins: There is a field for DOMAIN, so yes, I enter it.06:39
daftykinsand you could run nautilus from the terminal to see error output06:40
Apteryxdaftykins: that's a good idea06:40
ApteryxLet me try these 2 things... I'll have to quit irc for a couple minutes.06:40
ApteryxThanks for the help if I don't see you again :)06:41
daftykinsit's pretty much law you have to report back!06:41
Apteryxdaftykins: hehe alright :)06:41
Apteryxdaftykins: It seems it cannot resolve the IP based on the host name: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13500652/ (I found this in /var/log/kern.log after trying to mount the share with mount.cifs07:01

OpenSorceI mean I can edit files and reboot to get it done, but no way to do it on the fly?08:03
geirhaKartagis: Hm. Ok. Could also be mkdir is an alias or function that does something different, or it could be fd 1 (stdout) has been redirected elsewhere08:03
futurama140yea i know. ive extracted the tar file. what do i do with the stuff in it?08:03
VenomBytefuturama140: depends, what did u download?08:04
Kartagisgeirha: mkdir is hashed (/bin/mkdir)08:04
VenomByteOpenSorce: yes you can switch audio output on the fly08:04
VenomByteOpenSorce: what are you trying to edit?08:04
futurama140venombyte: CRDA and wireless-regdb08:05
OpenSorceVenomByte, how would I do that? I haven't found that functionality in Unity.08:05
geirhaKartagis: Hm. Then maybe the filesystem is the weird one out08:05
OpenSorceVenomByte, the editing comment was refering to using ALSA08:05
imran_has any one over here replaced pulse audio with Alsa ? in 15.1008:06
VenomBytefuturama140: after you did extract the files can u see something like a install.sh or make file?08:08
VenomByteOpenSorce: I don't really get what you are trying, is it changing your output device or making edits to unity??08:09

TJ-futurama140: first of all start from the directory where the project is, secondly, the file is likely called "Makefile" not "makefile", 3rdly you may need to run 'automake' to create the Makefile from a 'Makefile.am', or if there's a 'Makefile.in' you'll need to use "./configure" ... if that doesn't exist you'll need to generate it with "autoconf" ... etc. etc.08:58

ashleyhindleHi - how can I find out how libapache2-mod-php5 is installed, and where it gets its php.ini from?09:09
klejphi guys. I just plugged in a mouse but it will not fire up. No red light at the bottom. Is there a driver for a plexgear mouse in the ubuntuverse?09:09
embeddedthe /home is in a different partition09:09
ashleyhindleAs far as I can tell there isn't a php.ini in that .deb, or php5 or php5-common, though php5-common has default php.ini files (like -development), so I just wanted to see if it gets it from there09:10
TJ-futurama140: what was the point if wanting to build CRDA?09:10
futurama140TJ-: my wifi is rancid and i'm swiftly runing out of options. so: http://askubuntu.com/questions/597546/iwconfig-wlan0-txpower-30mw-not-working09:11
TJ-futurama140: are you trying to overcome a crowded frequency band, or some interference you've identified?09:15
TJ-ashleyhindle: it may generate/install the php.ini it used in the package .postinst script09:16
ashleyhindleThanks TJ- I'll gander09:16
TJ-ashleyhindle: you'll find that (and other packages conf files) with  "ll /var/lib/dpkg/info/libapache2-mod-php5.*"09:17
futurama140TJ-: not that i'm aware of. i figured if i can increase power to my wifi dongle i'll pick up signal better. as it is, my signal drops off intermitently and when i do have signal its super slow09:17
TJ-futurama140: increasing Tx power isn't going to help if the problem is received signal strength09:18
futurama140TJ-: look, obviously i have no clue what i'm doing and i'm grasping at straws. someone suggested this method so thats what ive been trying. please, do you have a better idea that doesnt involve money?09:19
OerHeksfuturama140, told you before: messing with txpower does not work that way.09:19
TJ-futurama140: USB devices typically don't have very effecient antennas09:19
TJ-futurama140: Yes. Read the logs, gather *evidence* as to what is going on first, then act on that evidence. Don't try random things, you'll just get confused, frustrated, and possibly break the system especially building code locally09:20
futurama140TJ-: i have a pringles cantenna and a pie-tin parabolic antenna but when i plug the wifi dongle into a usb extension cord i cant even get any signal ever09:20
futurama140TJ-: i've tried two seperATE USB EXTENSIONS09:20
futurama140TJ-: what logs?09:21
TJ-futurama140: start with /var/log/syslog. Network Manager, which maages wpa_supplicant (which is responsible for maintaining a Wifi connection) are quite verbose in reporting what's going on09:21
futurama140TJ-: ok, i have no idea what anything means. pastebin here?09:22

TJ-futurama140: if the PC has intermittent reception problems, the root cause is likely either the location of the AP it is connecting to, or other APs/devices in the unlicensed frequency band causing interference - things like Wireless CCTV, Baby monitors, burglar alarms, microwave ovens, all use the same frequency band and don't have to cooperate09:23

voozeHi, i'm trying to compile my "own" kernel, in order to apply this patch: https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/423494/ - Following this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile - I have done all the steps until it says "patch kernel" but It only says: "read the instructions from the patch provider to learn how to apply it." but the patch does not say. Any ideas? :)10:56
TJ-futurama140: that's helpful. line 818 is an example of why its disassociating10:57
futurama140TJ-: so is it something fixable?10:59
TJ-futurama140: now report this: "pastebinit <( iwconfig wlan0; sudo iwlist wlan0 scan )"10:59
Priceyvooze: `patch < the.patch` is usually a good start.11:00

voozePricey, should I place the patch a specific place? like ~/kernel/linux-lts-wily-4.2.0/debian.master or something? or does that not matter?11:01

voozePricey, oh :D11:07

EriC^^ddr_: what's up?11:11
TJ-futurama140: The good news is you don't appear to have other APs locally causing interference (although non-Wifi devices could be - microwaves, etc.). From lines 617/619 of the syslog pastebin I'd suspect the r8188eu dirver for the device is the cause. e.g. "r8188eu: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned."11:12
futurama140TJ-: so what are my options for fixing it?11:13
TJ-futurama140: is the PC using 15.04 Vivid?11:14
futurama140TJ-: 14.04 LTS11:14
TJ-futurama140: ahhh, with the LTS Enablement pack11:15
futurama140TJ-: in the software center?11:16
EriC^^ddr_: can you boot a live usb?11:17
TJ-futurama140: I just checked the kernel source; there have been 196 patches to the rtl8188eu code since v3.19 which is the kernel version currently installed. I'd suggest testing the system with either the 15.10 Wily v4.2 kernel, or a recent mainline kernel build11:17
futurama140TJ-: how d i go about doing that?11:17
voozePricey, I can see /kernel/linux-lts-wily-4.2.0/drivers/rtc/class.c and /kernel/linux-lts-wily-4.2.0/include/linux/rtc.h like the patch says, but the patch is saying like a/ and b/ but I cant find those. You have an idea?11:17
voozePricey, like it says: diff --git a/drivers/rtc/class.c b/drivers/rtc/class.c11:18
TJ-vooze: from the base of the kernel source-code tree: "patch -p1 < path/to/patc/file.diff"11:18
Priceyvooze: ignore a & b, those are the before and after versions. As long as you're in the bit with the next part of the path it should work.11:19
TJ-vooze: "man patch" you'll see '-pX' strips off X path directory components11:19

eahmedshendymay be I am missing something11:23
Priceyvooze: That likely means your tree has been modified since the patch was authored. So what the patch suggests changing doesn't match up with what's already there. Resolution will likely require looking at the source and patch and applying manually.11:23
cursesis the wheel group used at all on modern Ubuntu?11:23
voozePricey, ah okay, I'll give it a try :) thanks for your help so far.11:24
voozePricey, could it be that the ubuntu kernel is a bit modified and I should try a "clean" kernel?11:25
ddr_eric, already bootesd11:26
Priceyvooze: It will be the case, it may even be that that patch has already been applied and you're trying it a second time. If you use a vanilla kernel you will likely break features ubuntu relies upon.11:26

wootehfootTJ-, thank you, this is the answer I was looking for.13:04

wootehfootTJ-, that security concern can't be seen from the bug data alone13:05

TJ-wootehfoot: the greeter runs as the root user, but a login session starts once the password is authenticated. It is possible for the X server user session to crash but the login session to remain, so rather like when you repeatedly 'sudo ...' the password is only needed the first time13:11

AtuMikonia, true.. but some sort of basic integration would be nice. I'm doing a class on how to do this, so I will explain the basics on how things work.. I will then have to say that integration is a project, not a procedure.13:27

ikoniahrobi123: is there an ubuntu package for the newer drivers ?14:19
hrobi123ikonia:  ehm this is not canonical drivers, no.14:19

deskwizarddweidler, try in #ubuntu-mate15:09
TJ-dweidler: but all the montors are identical resolution. It sounds like a scaling/panning issue15:09

dweidlerthe latest one. How to set a screen to primary? Can't see any option in screen settings15:10

deskwizardor that yeah15:11
deskwizarddweidler, https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-control-center/issues/17 (jarrpa, 08-04-2013)15:12
TJ-dweidler: either "--noprimary" or "--primary" depending on what experiment you want to do, and which R&R version is supported15:12
dweidlerChanging the primary didn't help. I guess the only solution is to move the smaller screen's top to the bigger screens top. But when having more icons that could fit vertically, the will still exceed the display size15:16

maxtimboMWM, you're encountering the same problem i had. Use this bash script: http://pastebin.com/Gs4nGSJU17:03
dev__i want to know which all udev scripts create nodes inside /dev folder17:03
functionoverformMWM, there's lots of bash books, the manual, etc. if you're in a hurry you should figure out exactly what you want to automate, then go from there.17:03
functionoverformbut basically just write what you want to a file, chmod +x filename17:03
functionoverformand put it in /bin/bash if you want to create a custome command.17:04
maxtimboMWM, use the command  "sudo chmod 755 network-restart.sh" to change the permissions.17:05
maxtimboMWM, move the script to /etc/init.d17:05
MWMis "+x" the actual argument or meant to be a variable for whatever permissions I want to set?17:05
dev__i want to know which all udev scripts create nodes inside /dev folder??17:05
dev__can anybody please help me?17:05
MWMAhhh.  thanks guys.  Ill drop back in if it doesnt work :)17:06
n1n0hiwk just returns "unknown command"17:06
maxtimboMWM, finally make sym link to /etc/rc4.d and append S07 or something like that17:06
MWMthanks for the link BTW17:06
PeanutHi - is there an online repository where I can see the history of a particular file in a particular package? How does Ubuntu track its source internally, do they use e.g. git?17:06
maxtimboMWM, http://askubuntu.com/questions/228304/how-do-i-run-a-script-at-start-up17:07
nicomachusPeanut: http://packages.ubuntu.com/17:07
Peanutnicomachus: thanks. That gives me the per-release versions of the packages, but I would like to see the inside of those packages.17:07
TJ-dev__: the list of installed udev rules is got with "dpkg -L udev"17:08
dev__thanks for the info17:09
dev__will check it17:09
nicomachusPeanut: search the package you want, then select the version you want, then you can view the changelog, download the source, whatever you want.17:09
mcphailPeanut: have a look on launchpad.net. Most packages are versioned using bzr, but there is support for git now so some may have switched17:09
Peanutmcphail: ah, that might be useful, thanks.17:10
tewardPeanut: any specific package in question you're looking for?  We can point you where you need to go17:10
Peanutnicomachus: I was hoping to prevent that, but that would work as well, yes.17:10
tewardPeanut: though, to determine changes to a file that are *outside* the packaging itself (i.e. changes made upstream in the source code by the people who develop that program), you'd have to check those repositories and changelogs17:10
Peanutteward: the partman-auto udeb package. Something seems to have changed between Precise and Trusty which I'm trying to track down.17:10
mcphailPeanut: https://code.launchpad.net/partman-auto17:12
mcphailPeanut: does that help?17:12
Peanutmcphail: great, that seems to be just what I was looking for.17:13
n1n0hiwk had to "sudo sh amd-driver-installer-x86.x86_64.run" (space btw sudo and sh), but returned ""sh: 0: Can't open amd-driver-installer-x86.x86_64.run".17:13
MWMive got no rc4 driector in /etc/init.d .... create it?17:13
tewardPeanut: that should help you then, that link, note that between Precise and Trusty you're talking about two years of time, so finding the specific change/commit may be difficult17:13
n1n0hiwk should I have the "uni/multiverse" repository thing enabled somewhere?17:14
Peanutteward: I realise that - but I think I know which file has changed, so this should allow me to track the history of just that file, I hope.17:14
tewardPeanut: indeed.  Good hunting, and good luck!17:16

Guy1524guys, is there a way for me press a button to toggle whether or not the mouse cursor is displayed on my screen?17:20
Guy1524I need this for a workaround for a game called Unturned which fails to hide the system cursor17:20
nicomachusGuy1524: are you running it in Wine?17:21
Guy1524I am running the native version17:21
nicomachusok. come on over to #gamingonlinux and we can help you out there. this isn't really an ubuntu question.17:21
Kartagiswhy would I be getting Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) as a result of apt-get install or autoremove?17:21
Guy1524ok, well I thought it would because I dont want to do anything directly with the game, disabling the cursor would be an OS question right17:22
nicomachusnah it's most likely in-game.17:22
nicomachusKartagis: try 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' and then run your install again17:23
Guy1524I know that the problem is with the game, but the solution I want has nothing to do with the game17:23

Bernzelhmm didn't work daftykins18:23
geniilickalott: Check in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf to make sure managed=true is there in the [ifupdown] section18:25
zuippoI'm using the ubuntu minimal cd to install ubuntu. During the network configuration the installer forces me to use WLAN, but i want to use LAN. I have the cable plugged in and the router reports that he has assigned an IP to my device. But the installer forces me to enter WLAN stuff.18:26
lickalottgenii, it was false.  I changed it.  But why all the sudden would that be an issue, what would cause that?  BTW:  Thanks for the assist!18:28
TJ-genii: lickalott "managed=false" is how it should be; that controls whether NM tries to interfere with interfaces declared manually in /etc/network/interfaces18:30
TJ-lickalott: if the NM service doesn't start at boot-time, check it is enabled to auto-start, and if so, check the syslog or (with systemd) the journalctl log for that service18:31
lickalottTJ-, so keep it false in the .conf - copy.  How can i determine if it is enabled to auto start? systemctl?18:32
geniiTJ-: Ah, I thought this usarder was the one who altered his interfaces file to use the external USB->LAN adapter as the default instead of the onbo18:32
TJ-lickalott: which Ubuntu release is it?18:32
TJ-lickalott: we have *three* init systems to work with :) ... you sure? 15.10 means systemd then18:33

TJ-lickalott: best to pastebin the entire log: "journalctl -u NetworkManager.service | pastebinit"18:43
zuippoBashing-om: ip link show tells me it detects only a single network device. The minimal installer tells me it failed to scan for wlan networks and asks me for an SSID and if it's WPA/TKIP or WEP. I think the installer detects the ethernet card as wlan... It is a laptop, i will try to switch wlan of and run ip list show again18:43

TJ-lickalott: right, let's check the service status: "systemctl status NetworkManager.service" tell us what the 3rd line "Loaded: ..." shows18:50
TJ-pers3us: none as yet, I need to figure out how to report it... diplomatically18:50
pers3usTJ-: Oh, that kind of a bug :D18:51
zuippoTJ-: was that directed to me? I don't have systemctl since I'm in a minimal cd (only have a CD and no usb stick here...)18:52
TJ-pers3us: summing it up though, 'tar' used to create the .deb packages doesn't use "--numeric-owner" when creating the packages, which means on a system where root != UID 0, things break in interesting ways. Just got hit by it using deboostrap, for example18:52
TJ-zuippo: no, that was for lickalott18:52
zuippoTJ-: sorry thought you confused name since it also sounded network related :x18:52
TJ-zuippo: so, the problem (bug) is udevd thinking that 14e4:1629 is wireless and giving the i/f a "wl" prefix18:53
lickalottTJ-, http://paste.ubuntu.com/13504913/18:53
zuippoTJ-: and there is no way to force the minimal cd to treat it as an ethernet connection?18:53
pers3usTJ-: That is weird. Why would they assume that root will always be UID 0?18:54
TJ-zuippo: ok, see "man systemd.link" for an explanation. That also hints at some boot-time over-rides you may be able to use to work around it18:54
TJ-pers3us: I've been hitting a few of these issues since I started building an unconventional distro spin and one thing I do is have root != 0, just to spoil the fun of some immature malware code.18:56
TJ-lickalott: how do you determine, at boot-time, that network manager isn't running?18:57
foul_owlDoes Ubuntu release a dhcp lease when the system is shutdown with the "shutdown -h now" command?18:58
TJ-lickalott: That systemctl output shows the service is enabled for auto-start "enabled; vendor preset: enabled" ... and the log doesn't show any problems with it starting.18:58
foul_owlOr do I have to manually release the dhcp lease before shutdown?18:58
TJ-foul_owl: generally it keeps the lease. I think you can custom-configure dhclient to release18:59

foul_owlAnyone know how to manually release DHCP leases from a dhcpd server?19:58
k1lfoul_owl: reconnect to the network on networkmanager, erstart whole networking, ....20:00
k1lfoul_owl: sudo dhclient -r20:01
foul_owlThe client no longer exists, I'm talking about from the _server_20:02
foul_owlie, I've been creating and nuking vms all day, now my dhcp server is out of leases20:03
foul_owlSince ubuntu doesn't release the lease upon shutdown...20:03
k1lfoul_owl: what server is that? a router?20:04
geniifoul_owl: /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases  or if using dnsmasq to assign them, /var/lib/misc/dnsmasq.leases20:05
k1lfoul_owl: today some(most?) routers/dhcpservers) are set to reuse the same ip for the same mac adress. so make sure that setting is off if you dont want that20:05
foul_owlIt's a dhcp server, that's all20:06
foul_owlRouter is a separate device20:06
MannyLNJHello. Using the guide at http://www.instructables.com/id/Host-Your-Own-Virtual-Private-Network-VPN-with-O/?ALLSTEPS I am having a problem installing OpenVpn . I get to step 5 and then I get the message  cp: cannot stat ‘/usr/share/doc/openvpn/examples/easy-rsa/2.0/*’: No such file or directory20:08
foul_owlOk so I find the relevant lease {} block, remove the block and then?20:08
foul_owlDo I restart dhcpd or is there a reload command?20:08
ioriayou cannot flush them ?20:09
foul_owlIs flushing different from releasing?20:09
ioriano, i think basically not20:12

lickalottsorry TJ- my battery died and I didn't have my laptop plugged in.   I see a message (i'd have to grab it from the system log), but mostly I notice that from within the desktop it's not enabled.  I have to manually start the process.20:24
eFfeMhi, i want to install the fglrx driver but it tells me fglrx-core depends on lib32gcc1, but this is on a 64 bit system, what is wrong  here and how to fix ?20:25
umdxhi, how do i install the graphic driver for Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller. it won't let me watch twitch tv without lagging20:29
Jordan_Uskasturi: On BIOS based systems the boot firmware doesn't know anything about partition tables at all, let alone boot flags. The BIOS will read the first sector of the drive, the MBR, into memory and jump to it. So you need to be sure that you have a bootloader installed to the mbr, /dev/sda , not to a partition like /dev/sda1.20:29
Jordan_Uumdx: Intel graphics should be configured with the correct driver by default, do you have issues with other video playing applications?20:30
cadoIs this an appropriate venue to ask questions about headless booting of 15.10? I have an odd issue where only when the graphics card is removed, my networking seems to fail. I have noticed the names ubuntu renames the interfaces to are deterministic but different between video card present versus removed. I attempted to define a consistent naming scheming in udev/rules.d but that didn’t seem to have any affect even when adding arguments to the boot list. I do 20:32
cadoknow if that is the point of failure, but I figured I would try to isolate it as not being the problem if possible.20:32
umdxanyone here uses i3/?20:34

Grimm_Hi, I'm trying to install Ubuntu 15.10 on my other computer (it runs Windows 7 and is 32bits) but it keeps giving me an error: 'Boot Error'.  I'm installing from a bootable flash drive made Ubuntu 15.04's Start-up disk creator20:51
Grimm_Please how ddo I fix this?20:51
Grimm_ *do20:52
TJ-Grimm_: "Boot error" is a report from the syslinux boot code, meaning it cannot find the rest of the boot-loader20:52
ioriaGrimm_, can you type   help  ?20:52
Grimm_ioria: Please ioria, I don't understand what you mean20:54
TJ-Grimm_: this is a known bug, due to being built by GCC v5 ( previous releases used GCC v4.9)20:54
ioriaGrimm_, after Boot error , do you have a prompt ?20:54
TJ-Grimm_: I committed the bug-fix yesterday but it'll be a while until it gets into the archives20:54
TJ-Grimm_: bug 150700220:55
ubottubug 1507002 in syslinux (Ubuntu) ""boot error" due to gcc v5 transition" [Critical,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/150700220:55
Grimm_After the Boot Error when I press any key it beeps and the error is written again20:56
ioriaGrimm_, try    help20:56
TJ-ioria: it's no good; it won't do anything. the fix is not yet in the archives20:56
ioriaTJ- i had a similar issue with start-up disk creator... i type help ann then enter and the system booted...20:57
ioriaTJ- i admit... i don't know why20:58
TJ-it can depend on the host CPU, the issue is the data structure alignment changed due to GCC 521:01

ubottuqu4nt1n: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)21:01
ioriaTJ- it was a pentium 4, ibm netvista21:02

Grimm_So how do I fix it21:03
TJ-Grimm_: you'd need to build syslinux yourself with the patch attached to the bug report, or wait for the fixed packages to get into the archives21:05
TJ-Grimm_: there's a version in my bug-fixes PPA if you want to test it https://launchpad.net/~tj/+archive/ubuntu/bugfixes21:06

k1lofficialdellacry: nvidia-current installed?21:45
officialdellacryI'm not sure.21:45

DanielLakik: you can download steam os as an iso file. burn it to a disc or usb flash drive21:50
TJ-asad_: I'd look at /var/log/kern.log for clues, and possibly /var/log/syslog. Look for anything mentioning the synaptics (touchpad) driver. Also, possibly /var/log/Xorg.0.log (that's the GUI X server log)21:50

thecheshirecat_in grub22:00
thecheshirecat_but it hasn't changed the problem22:01
thecheshirecat_solved* (scuse my poor english >>')22:01
TJ-thecheshirecat_: you were on the correct lines with "acpi_osi=" but my bet would be you need to set that to one fo the Windows versions that ACPI DSDT supports22:01
TJ-thecheshirecat_: the usual problem is that the firmware doesn't provide full services when the OS is Linux, so it has to pretend to be a Windows version instead22:01
TJ-thecheshirecat_: what's the highest Windows version reported with "sudo strings /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT | grep -i windows" ?22:02
asad_TJ-: So there is nothing I can do?22:02
TJ-asad_: if the model is certified that suggests there is something unique that has changed on your particular PC, possibly the firmware version?22:03

thecheshirecat_ok ><22:09
thecheshirecat_hard to recognize irony in english22:10
TJ-thecheshirecat_: I'd suggest trying "acpi_osi=Windows 2016"22:11

daftykinslmmx: okie dokie, just checking22:12
lmmxCould anyone on Ubuntu 14 check for me please? e.g. Ctrl + Shift + U + 2022 will give a bullet point symbol22:12

adrian_1908hello. I have a problem. I'm mounting /tmp as ramfs. So far I ran into no issues but now that Ubuntu wants to do an update, it reports "not enough space in /tmp". I have no shortage of RAM and can copy gigs of data onto there.22:14
tgm4883daftykins: lol22:14
lmmxheyyyy haha22:14
Bashing-omlmmx: my result : sysop@1404mini:~$ ) .22:14
daftykinsadrian_1908: "mount" would probably show you /tmp is small though no? surely you have to define a size to use22:15
lmmxthanks all, I'll take it back to mint :-)22:15
TJ-adrian_1908: using tmpfs is a better bet for /tmp/22:15
thecheshirecat_TJ-: thank you very much :22:16
adrian_1908These are my fstab settings: ramfs    /tmp    ramfs    defaults,noatime,mode=1777,size=16G    0    022:16
thecheshirecat_i'll try this solution and i come back later to say if the trouble is still here22:16
adrian_1908TJ-: tmpfs won't use swap unless it's the very last resort, correct?22:16
adrian_1908I have plenty of ram and don't want linux to be stupid about it.22:17
TJ-One downside of ramfs is you can keep writing data into it until you fill up all memory, and the VM can't free it because the VM thinks that files +should get written to backing store (rather than swap space), but ramfs hasn't got any backing store. Because of this, only root (or a trusted user) should be allowed write access to a ramfs mount.22:17
Jordan_Uadrian_1908: According to "man mount" ramfs doesn't accept any options, it really looks like you meant that fstab entry for tmpfs.22:17
adrian_1908TJ-: I see, I wasn't aware of that.22:18
TJ-adrian_1908: just switch it to use tmpfs :)22:18
adrian_1908Jordan_U: Ok, my mistake. I'll switch over to tmpfs then.22:18
lmmxcan anyone give me the value of `echo $GTK_IM_MODULE` on Ubuntu please?22:19

lmmxhmm.. okay that's what I have..22:20
Bashing-omlmmx: xfce4: no return for " echo $GTK_IM_MODULE " .22:21
lmmxBashing-om: sounds like you have problems with your setup from those last 2 outputs22:21

MonkeyDustjedininjarob  why not edit the document in the terminal?22:29
adrian_1908Jordan_U: Sorry to bug you again, but looking at the mount manpage section on tmpfs, are the options listed there in addition to the ones mentioned early on in the page ('noexec', 'relatime' etc.)? Do you happen to know?22:29
adrian_1908(Or are they the only ones that apply)22:30
Jordan_Uadrian_1908: They are in addition to. So noexec and relatime do apply to tmpfs.22:31

MonkeyDustjedininjarob  in a terminal, type    nano [your document]22:34
thecheshirecatit's a nightmare22:34
TJ-thecheshirecat: right, so try some of the other values; maybe "Windows 2015" and work backwards. Each of those values causes the firmware to configure different functionality22:35
TJ-thecheshirecat: generally, the more recent the Windows version, the more functionality provided22:35
Jordan_UMonkeyDust: I don't see how that actually helps jedininjarob get any closer to closing and saving all text files they're editing with a hotkey.22:35
jedininjarobwhat i am asking round about is if the mouse can do it with just a click why could there not be a way to exacute that via terminal?22:35
thecheshirecatok, i'll try 201522:35
guest-HrN9Nxhelp me22:35
akikjedininjarob: there's a tool called xdotool which you can use to simulate x11 events. maybe that could be used22:36
jedininjarobhmmm ok22:37
jedininjarobseems so simple22:37
jedininjarobwounder whys it hard22:37
jedininjarobill look into the xdotool thanks akik22:37
thecheshirecatno differences with 201522:39
officialdellacryHello, I'm trying to get steam running on Ubuntu 15.04 and i was here before and was told to install nvidia-current and restart.22:39
officialdellacryI tried doing so22:39
officialdellacryIt worked. Steam started, but every time it started the machine hung completely.22:39
akika big part of learning is trying out tools and what they can do22:40
officialdellacryI had to hard reboot every time.22:40
Jordan_Uthecheshirecat: What is the output of "cat /proc/cmdline"?22:40
meisth0thi'm trying to make a deb package with dpkg-deb. the application i am trying to package is a daemon. and i don't understand how can i build package to work with both upstart and systemd. is there a documentation on this?22:43

jedininjarobwhat about putting window focus on gedit and from the command line running a keyboard script that will simulate the   cntrl-S  and cntrl-Q?22:45
OerHeksmeisth0th, for a start, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SystemdForUpstartUsers and maybe this channel can be a help #ubuntu-packaging22:47
Jordan_Uthecheshirecat: That looks correct. Not sure what to try next.22:48
officialdellacryHello, I am running Ubuntu 15.04 and trying to get Steam to start but the system hangs everytime i start it.22:48

cadoAnyone seen networking failures related to dynamic names for ethernet interfaces when switching from headed to headless ubuntu 15.1022:49
akikjedininjarob: did you even read the xdotool page? it is able to search for a window and select it. to call the xdotool script you can bind keys in your desktop environment's settings22:49
thecheshirecatthank you very much, especially TJ- and Jordan_U22:49
jedininjarobi am reading now22:49
thecheshirecatgood bye everyone22:49
Jordan_Uofficialdellacry: Do you know if it's a kernel panic or just X crashing? Does your capslock key flash? Can you use alt+sysrq+k to kill X?22:49
officialdellacryNo, Nothing works at all.22:50
Jordan_Uofficialdellacry: What happens when you try to use sysrq magic to cleanly unount and reboot?22:50
officialdellacrywhat is sysrq magic, what keys22:51
OerHekscado, unlikely network interface name changes by enable/.disable monitor, there are changes when you upgrade http://askubuntu.com/questions/689070/network-interface-name-changes-after-update-to-15-10-udev-changes22:51

Extreminadoryehh will try with that one...23:00
Raccoon1400is it a bad idea to add a windows install to grub manually? When I learned this I'd just go into menu.lst. Stuff I've read says now there are more automated utilities to do this, and that it could harm my computer editing the files?23:01
cadoThese wild network naming changes should probably be pulled and better tested before integration23:02
Jordan_URaccoon1400: If your Windows installation isn't being detected and added automatically, there's probably something else wrong with it.23:02
Raccoon1400I liked the manual way before, it was efficient and hard to break your sytem as long as you had some idea what youare doing23:02
k1lRaccoon1400: menu.lst is old grub1. we have grub2 now23:02

kosaqhow do i create a live usb squashfs and overlayfs with only dash, X and GFX driver pkgs?23:21
kosaqanyone have a script for this?23:21
daftykinskosaq: what are you trying to achieve?23:22
kosaqdo i need anything else? like systemD or is it enough to get it booting?23:23
daftykinsi refer you to my above enquiry :)23:23
kosaqdaft: custom live usb start with minimum of pkgs23:24
kosaqisnt there anyone capable of creating a working script for this job?23:24
daftykinsi doesn't see the point23:25
daftykinser, i don't*23:25
k1lkosaq: that is more a question for ##linux then for #ubuntu, right?23:25
LambdaComplexkosaq: i really don't think ubuntu is the right distro for that23:26
LambdaComplexkosaq: sounds more like something you'd wanna use gentoo or arch for tbh23:26
k1lubuntu ships a minimal iso for those who would like to start small. there even is  a netboot iso.23:26
daftykinsi'd say it sounds more like something you shouldn't need to reinvent the wheel for23:27
kosaqthe thing is im not a linux expert so i need to have it easy23:27
k1lkosaq: then use the minimal iso. add what you need to it.23:27
kosaqdafty so there can i find this kind of distro?23:27
kosaqiwe searched the hole net, after live linux with only Xorg = NO answer23:28
daftykinskosaq: if you want it easy, why don't you just create a live USB of ubuntu with persistence and install some packages... no point in pursuing this lightweight approach you have in mind.23:28
daftykinsi find that hard to believe given the number of bootable distros out there designed for certain tasks, but again - if we knew why you want this then it might help.23:29
* LambdaComplex stills says arch or gentoo 23:30
LambdaComplexarch would be easier23:30
* SlidingHorn votes arch here, too....23:30
LambdaComplexjust figure out the bare minimum packages you need23:31
SlidingHorntheir documentation is pretty impeccable, too23:31
kosaqkill: can i run the minimum iso with try ubuntu menuentry? like only on squashfs/overlayfs or is it installed on the usb?23:31
k1lLambdaComplex: SlidingHorn you have seen the "i am not a linux expert"?23:31
daftykinsthey have not (:23:31
SlidingHornthat I didn't.....lol, sorry23:31
LambdaComplexbut this isn't exactly a beginner problem...so, oh well23:32
kosaqlamba: because the damn distro is at least 1 000 pkgs23:32
LambdaComplexkosaq: which?23:32
zykotick9kosaq: fyi, you _might_ find this page http://live.debian.net/ helpful, if you want to create a debian-based livecd?  ymmv.23:32
LambdaComplexHeck, Arch's base group isn't even that big23:33
LambdaComplexOnly 50 packages23:33
kosaqok so no easy scripting to get it up and running ?23:33
kosaqlamda: that the minum iso right?23:34
LambdaComplex(or remove)23:35
LambdaComplexoops, i was scrolled up. my bad23:35
LambdaComplexkosaq: no, Arch Linux's base group contains 50 packages23:35
LambdaComplexAlthough you don't _need_ all of them23:35
mcphailkosaq: you do realise that having X without a window manager (at least) is fairly useless?23:35
kosaqthe other thing is the kernel modules, its way to many of them23:35
LambdaComplexDon't need nano or vi or sed or which or gawk or bash.23:36
LambdaComplexI wouldn't wanna uninstall them, but you don't _need_ them23:36
mcphailkosaq: http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Barebones?redirect=no might bring you closer to what you need23:36

* zykotick9 notes vi is a posix command, so if your install doesn't have it - it's broken ;)23:37
kosaqhell i tink Arch Linux is the thing, but now i know how debian/ubuntu works23:37
LambdaComplexzykotick9: But the system _will_ boot without it :P23:37
zykotick9LambdaComplex: yes, boot a "broken" system ;)23:37
kosaqkll: damn why can i try it? sucks to install GRUB etc23:38
mcphailkosaq: and have a look at busybox instead of the gnu utilities23:38
LambdaComplexpacman -S neovim && echo 'alias "vi"="nvim"' >> ~/.bashrc23:38
LambdaComplexzykotick9: Good enough? :P23:38
k1lkosaq: well, good luck with that then as a linux beginner. but  we can put the arch talk then into the arch channels or ##linux23:38
* zykotick9 also notes this is #ubuntu and arch isn't really on topic...23:38
daftykinsyep it'd be great if all the non-ubuntu talk headed off to relevant channels :)23:41

LambdaComplexit's not even real, man23:42
frank1eanyone knows if there is some way to give some specific texts in terminal specific colors?23:42
LambdaComplexfrank1e: tput?23:42
frank1eI am controlling my bitcoin wallets via terminal and it all looks boring and gives me anxiety lol23:43
LambdaComplexis it like, a shell script?23:43
frank1eLambdaComplex what is tput please, am not that familiar with terminal in general and everything23:43
frank1eLambdaComplex uh23:43
frank1eit is to be exact:23:43
frank1ethe same like the bitcoin gui client (aka bitcoin core - the qt gui) but just in terminal23:44
frank1ehold on23:44
frank1eam bad at explaining and also not familiar with customizing ubuntu or similar. especially terminal. but I need some more color going on in here. this could also help finding for example wallet adresses, balances etc more easy for me23:45
LambdaComplexare you asking about coloring specific parts of the output of a command?23:46
Extreminadoris this tuturial is still right23:46
frank1eyes somehow23:46
frank1eand also23:46
frank1ecoloring specific things in general like23:46
SlidingHornfrank1e, try to keep your responses to as few lines as possible.  Makes things easier to keep track of23:47
frank1eeverything that stands in between a { and a }, where special custom colors like adresses/balances override these colors23:47
LambdaComplexeh, that'd require either modifying the command itself (which may or may not be feasible) or making a custom script to format the output23:47
LambdaComplexwhich wouldn't be easy either23:48
frank1eyes, custom script to format what is printed in my terminal23:48
LambdaComplexwell, the script would have to run the command, look at its output, format it accordingly, and then print it23:48
frank1eI remember having special color themes for php, css codes etc in text editors. thought something like this would be exist for ubuntu terminal23:48
frank1eLambdaComplex, http://www.webupd8.org/2011/04/solarized-must-have-color-paletter-for.html the screenshots I see there look perfect23:54
frank1edoes that work for ubuntu trusty with my case of terminal usage to color things up a little?23:55
LambdaComplexfrank1e: Is everything in your terminal currently a single color? O.o23:56
frank1eLambdaComplex, Yes, I use elementaryOS which is based on Ubuntu Trusty if that helps.23:58
ubottuElementary OS is an Ubuntu derivative which is supported in their IRC channel #elementary on irc.freenode.net - http://elementaryos.org/ for more information on this distribution.23:58
daftykinsif you guys want to talk it, please go to their channel23:58
daftykinswe don't support it here23:58
frank1e(the helpchat makes it impossible to get help there, nobody helping)23:58
frank1eso I ask here, since this is basicly exactly the same as Ubuntu, just with a different optical style23:59
tgm4883frank1e: no, it's not23:59
daftykinsno. elementary has its' own problems, such as a lack of community23:59
LambdaComplexdaftykins: I think he's noticed that part already :P23:59
frank1etgm4883 well all terminal commands so far worked exactly as in ubuntu23:59
