LangjanHi guys, anybody wanting to help with ubuntu login prob, please? 13:28
superflyLangjan: what's the problem?14:12
LangjanHi superfly  the root password is not being accepted to login14:23
superflyLangjan: why are you logging in as root?14:23
LangjanOK sorry, the username and password are the same 14:24
LangjanI'm currently at the password reset in recovery mode14:25
LangjanGetting Authentication token manipulation error14:26
superflyYou've lost me.14:27
superflyLangjan: again, why are you logging in as root?14:29
LangjanThe system was set to not require a login password, then suddenly it asked for password and I used the password that we registered on install14:30
LangjanWe are using the same password that the system always accepts for login and admin privileges14:32
superflythere's a difference between root (which you shouldn't be using) and a user who can sudo (which is what you should be doing)14:33
superflyalso, you should always require a password for logging in, it's just basic good security.14:34
superflyI gotta go, heading home14:34
LangjanOk sorry, learning - its the password that I use for sudo14:34
LangjanHi Kilos 15:23

inetpromagespawn: you really don't want to convert PDF to spreadsheet21:33
inetprogood evening BTW21:33
inetproPDF is a publishing format and I don't know why people fail to understand that21:34
inetproif you want the data then you must get it from the source before the PDF was generated21:35
inetprotime to hit the sack, good night21:37
magespawnno can do inetpro, i do not have access to the source21:37
inetpromagespawn: get it21:38
magespawnthe company will not give it to me, it is their main price list21:38
inetprodo yourself a favour and open the PDF file with an editor21:38
inetproit's all XML kinda stuff21:39
magespawnokay, is there a foss editor?21:39
magespawnor do you mean any xml editor?21:40
inetprosudo apt-get install okteta21:40
inetprothat ^^ is a hex editor amongst many thousands of editors21:41
magespawnthought you might mean a pdf editor21:41
magespawnalrighty, i will take a look in the morning when i am at work21:42
inetprohaha, I really mean it, open it in a normal editor and look21:42
magespawnwill do21:42
magespawnyou made the right call earlier, bedtime now21:43
inetproif you can't read it at all, it could even be just an image inside a pdf21:43
magespawnsort of like a fake pdf21:45
inetprobut there are other options if you want to be brave21:45
inetprolook at poppler-utils for example21:45
inetproaptitude show poppler-utils21:45
magespawnthat looks very useful21:47
inetproor look at http://askubuntu.com/questions/162037/how-to-edit-pdfs21:48
