jophish__daftykins: no dice with 35200:00
LonelyDanbowell thanks for all your help and information. I'll try out Steam and keep an eye out on my temperature readings.00:00
jophish__the only change was that ubuntu hung on the splash screen for several minutes00:00
daftykinsjophish__: ok, boot into Windows and install the updated BIOS the Dell site offers, there's one version newer that's a good 7 months newer00:01
daftykinsjophish__: but proceed carefully as a BIOS flash is not a thing to do on a whim :00:01
daftykinsAustin__Wall: do you recall which method you used to try the nvidia proprietary driver?00:02
jophish__no problem, I've still got 10+ minutes before I need to go get the charging cable00:02
jophish__just kidding!00:02
Austin__WallI went to the thirdparty drivers tab00:02
daftykinsjophish__: lol you had me then :P00:02
daftykinsAustin__Wall: cool, do you remember which you picked?00:02
bumblefuzzhow do I set up natural scrolling for my mouse?00:03
bumblefuzzif it already works for my trackpad00:03
Austin__Walldaftykins: NVIDIA binary driver - version 340.96 from nvidia-34000:03
daftykinsAustin__Wall: are you offered any a little older?00:04
Austin__WallThere the legacy 30400:04
daftykinsAustin__Wall: is this a more workstation class laptop, or?00:05
Austin__WallIt's a thinkpad T51000:05
jophish__ok, rebooting, fingers crossed00:06
zalgo_finally got this to work properly00:06
Austin__WallI use it primarially for programming and netflix/youtube but it'd be nice to run some games on it00:06
daftykinsAustin__Wall: could you run "cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | nc termbin.com 9999" ?00:06
bumblefuzzhow do I set up natural scrolling for my mouse if it already works for my trackpad??00:07
jophish__blast! "low graphics mode" again00:07
daftykinsjophish__: is it win10?00:07
jophish__daftykins: yes00:07
daftykinsjophish__: try Super+R -> "shutdown -s -t 1" in 10 prior to booting cold and into ubuntu00:07
daftykinsAustin__Wall: and "cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | nc termbin.com 9999" please00:08
EriC^^bumblefuzz: it's not in settings > touchpad?00:09
daftykinsAustin__Wall: ok; when the last nvidia attempt failed, did you have a method you can easily repeat today (now) if it were to fail again?00:10
daftykinsjust in case my idea does not work00:10
jophish__daftykins: no change after that I'm afraid00:10
bumblefuzzEriC^^, I already selected that00:10
bumblefuzzit works for the trackpad00:10
Austin__WallHmm... I just did purged nvidia-* and reinstalled the xorg thing00:10
bumblefuzzbut it doesn't work for my mouse00:10
EriC^^bumblefuzz: try xinput | nc termbin.com 999900:10
daftykinsAustin__Wall: ok - you only need to purge nvidia* - nothing else; right now the existence of /etc/X11/xorg.conf would have ruined having the nvidia driver on, so if you run "sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old" then go back to installing that nvidia 340.96 driver and reboot, you might have a better result00:12
Austin__WallI followed the instructions here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/206283/how-can-i-uninstall-a-nvidia-driver-completely00:12
Austin__WallOk I'll try that00:12
bumblefuzzEriC^^, type that into terminal?00:13
Ender_Wigginhey friends. total noob here. need a little help with networking stuff00:13
Ender_Wiggindo i need to assign a local static IP if im using a dyndns service like no-ip to host a TS3 server on my ubuntu box?00:14
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: yes, so it doesn't move ruining your port forwards00:14
EriC^^bumblefuzz: type xinput list-props 1100:14
Ender_Wigginim having a little trouble setting up the local static IP00:14
Austin__WallOk, rebooting now, I'll let you know how it goes00:14
EriC^^bumblefuzz: type xinput list-props 11 | nc termbin.com 999900:15
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: 1) edit your router's DHCP scope so there's some 'room' at the end (a network typically addresses from -> 254, where .1 is the router - you bring that scope back to say 250 then you can use 251-254 for your server.00:15
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: alright, what've you got installed on there?00:15
Ender_WigginI need to change the settings for eth0? I'm using a hardwired connection to my router00:15
Ender_WigginATM Im just using default settings00:15
daftykinsubuntu desktop or server?00:15
Ender_Wiggindesktop, running LXDE00:16
Ender_Wigginfrom ubuntu distro00:16
daftykinsok, so you've probably seen mention of editing /etc/network/interfaces right?00:16
Ender_Wiggingot in the directory, didnt know how to edit it00:16
daftykinsdouble check your interface is called eth0 for sure by typing "ip a" and looking for the name that isn't "lo"00:16
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: a nice simple text editor is 'nano'; "sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces"00:17
bumblefuzzalso, is there a way to swap my control and command keys?00:17
Ender_Wigginyeah says 2: eth000:17
EriC^^bumblefuzz: what do you mean by control and command keys?00:18
Ender_Wiggink im at the nano editor for that00:18
Austin_WallIt hung at starting light display manager00:18
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: so where you have "iface eth0 inet dhcp" change 'dhcp' to 'static' then after that line you need "address" for example, then next line "netmask" then "gateway" (example if that's your router IP)00:18
Ender_Wiggindaftykins: http://pastebin.com/QSK9aQJL00:19
Ender_Wigginthats what i have ATM00:19
bumblefuzzEriC^^, I mean press command to tell the system ctrl and press ctrl to press command00:20
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: ok enter twice after 'loopback' then  "auto eth0" next line "iface eth0 inet static" then as above00:20
bumblefuzzso if I want to copy, I press command + c00:20
bumblefuzzinstead of ctrl + c00:21
daftykinsbumblefuzz: heh i know the exact opposite pain when forced to use macs ;)00:21
bumblefuzzI'm just beginning on ubuntu00:22
bumblefuzzso, I want to make it as mac like as possible00:22
Ender_Wiggindaftykins so i should input that command in the nano editor?00:22
Ender_Wigginddint have anything about DHCP in it00:22
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: you're in a simple text editor right now, hang on let me just edit your pastebin as an example00:22
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: you know what your network uses for IPs already, i take it?00:22
Ender_Wiggini think so00:23
Ender_Wigginmeaning DHCP or whatever?00:23
Ender_Wigginsorry haha00:23
daftykinsyeah the IP you receive from your router as its' DHCP allocation - and the IP of your router itself00:23
Ender_Wigginyeah i know that00:23
daftykins"ip route" would say "default via <router IP>"00:23
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13535856/ you'll need to change those IPs depending on what yours are00:24
jophish__daftykins: I'm going to try installing the driver from nvidia's site00:25
EriC^^bumblefuzz: sure, open a terminal and type xev00:25
daftykinsjophish__: guaranteed bad idea :)00:26
Ender_Wigginok thanks00:26
jophish__It's looking as though I'm going to be reinstalling anyway :/00:26
skweekarg! I want to uninstall python3 but it prompts me to remove like 300mg of files00:26
Austin_Walldaftykins: It hung at starting light display manager, do you need any logs?00:26
daftykinsAustin_Wall: what's on screen instead?00:26
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: once you've done the above, there'll be more to do... but change the router DHCP range as mentioned, then reboot this system to get the new IP set00:27
Austin_WallIt was a list of stuff with a bunch of [OK]s and at the bottom it said starting light display manager and didn't do anything else00:28
TechmanIs there a way to get in contact with the folks who run the Ubuntu Pastebin?00:28
whallzhi, how can i disable ubuntu key mappings for the alt key? i need to map some for vim and ubuntu is capturing those00:28
freakyyhow can i install ubuntu gnome on an ubuntu installation?00:28
Austin_WallLet it sit a while and then uninstalled nvidia-*00:28
EriC^^whallz: you mean the hud?00:28
bumblefuzzEriC^^, just xev?00:28
EriC^^bumblefuzz: yeah00:28
whallzEriC^^: yup00:29
freakyynm found it already thanks00:29
EriC^^whallz: settings > keyboard > shortcuts00:29
daftykinsAustin_Wall: ah right, mmm ok ; so nvidia purge method then you could try the 304 instead00:29
TechmanEh, I'll contact their webmaster department00:29
TechmanHopefully that works out00:29
whallzEriC^^: i changed those00:30
bumblefuzzok, what is this?00:30
freakyycan i select which session to run in lightdm?00:30
freakyyif i install ubuntu-gnome-desktop package(s)00:30
whallzEriC^^: i need to find a way to see if xterm is actually sending the signal or what00:30
jophish__daftykins: well, nvidia's driver didn't make things any worse!00:30
daftykinsjophish__: if i were you i would try 14.04.300:30
jophish__daftykins: 15.04 worked well for me too00:31
jophish__and until today 15.10 was fine :)00:31
daftykinsoh i thought it was a new install... perhaps that older kernel was fine00:31
Ender_Wiggindaftykins: sooo haha noob question again, how do i get the hostname i setup on no-ip to talk to my server? I setup the port forwarding for TS3 in my router00:32
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: most routers have DynDNS config pages for you to enter your no-ip details, that's the #1 easiest00:32
Ender_Wigginok thanks00:32
Ender_Wiggindaftykins looks like my router just has a dropdown box for just DnyDNS.org00:34
Ender_Wigginassuming thats different from no-ip00:34
daftykinsah, mine had a few providers on such a dropdown... what make + model router is it?00:34
daftykinsyeah it is unfortunately00:34
Ender_WigginNetgear WNDR400000:34
daftykinshmm surprised if they don't support it, lets see00:34
miroesq_I am trying to configure my wifi through the cli. Entering "iwlist wlan0 scan" tells me that this interface does not support scanning.00:35
MWMI was looking for a lightweight desktop and tried lxde.  It seems buggy, is that normal?  Also it wont run a terminal, is that normal behavior as well?00:35
EriC^^bumblefuzz: ok, press the command key and get the key code00:35
=== wook is now known as Guest61291
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: sure it's on its' own? quick hunt shows - http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/23930/~/how-to-setup-dynamic-dns-on-a-netgear-router-using-www.no-ip.com00:35
jophish__daftykins: would you recommend a clean reinstall, or some kind of funky downgrading?00:36
EriC^^bumblefuzz: like if i hold my ctrl key, it says keycode 37, and Control_L next to it00:36
Ender_Wigginhmm maybe i need to update the firmware00:36
daftykinsjophish__: clean, downgrade is not possible00:36
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: not usually, is this one perhaps supplied by an ISP?00:36
jophish__ok, I'd like to keep /home and /var/lib/libvirt00:36
Ender_Wigginnaw one i bought on my own00:36
bumblefuzzI don't know how to tell00:37
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: ok, you're definitely on the advanced pages there? i know they like to segment and hide a lot of features these days; maybe different browsers show different things too00:37
bumblefuzzthere's a ton of text in the terminal00:37
EriC^^bumblefuzz: hold the command key, and see what it says00:38
daftykinsmiroesq_: sure that's the interface name? try "ifconfig -a" to identify interfaces00:38
Ender_Wigginyeah went advanced>advanced setup> Dynamic DNS00:38
bumblefuzzI found it00:38
bumblefuzzok, now what00:38
miroesq_daftykins: thx00:38
EriC^^bumblefuzz: what's the keycode and name for command and ctrl?00:39
jophish__daftykins: just to be sure, you don't think purging every package to do with x on the system and reinstalling ubuntu-desktop would work?00:39
bumblefuzz133 and 3700:39
bumblefuzzI didn't catch the name00:39
MWMinstead of purging ubuntu-dektop "build-essentials" might be quicker00:39
EriC^^bumblefuzz: ok, get the name00:39
daftykinsjophish__: i wouldn't take that approach myself, the most work i would go to is to reinstall that last kernel, purge nvidia* again and try nvidia-352 and nvidia-prime back on and booting that old kernel; then i'd call it a day00:39
daftykinsMWM: those two things have absolutely 0 to do with each other.00:40
miroesq_daftykins: yes, it's wlan1 because I am trying a second wifi dongle. the first one, which was wlan0 gave me that error, so that's why I tried a second dongle.00:40
daftykinsmiroesq_: cool, any better luck on wlan1? or are you trying to fix wlan0? :D00:41
miroesq_daftykins: same issue with wlan1 as with wlan0. If I fix one, I can fix the other. trying to even connect to a wifi without the scan does not work00:41
bumblefuzzSuper_L and Control_L00:42
bumblefuzznow what?00:42
EriC^^bumblefuzz: ok, type xmodmap -e "keycode 133=Control_L"00:42
daftykinsmiroesq_: tried nm-cli ? what chipset do they both use? ("lsusb" for USB and "lspci" for PCI cards)00:43
EriC^^that'll make the super as ctrl00:43
MWMI just installed lxde and Ive lost Terminal and it seems to stumble over opening programs , is this normal for lxde ?00:43
miroesq_daftykins: the current one is [Realtek RTL8188CUS]00:43
bumblefuzzEriC^^, I did that and made 37=Super_L00:44
bumblefuzzbut the keys aren't doing what they're supposed to00:45
daftykinsmiroesq_: full desktop ubuntu installed? which version?00:45
EriC^^bumblefuzz: hmm00:45
Austin_Walldaftykins: Still not working, took picture http://imgur.com/JGLUTqV00:45
miroesq_daftykins: ubuntu server 14.04. i am using an armv7 machine. odroid xu400:45
MWMI can confirm trouble with the RTL8111* chipset.  there is dowcumentation if you search.00:45
EriC^^bumblefuzz: type xmodmap -pke | nc termbin.com 999900:46
Austin_WallAlso got a couple error report popups when I rebooted00:46
daftykinsmiroesq_: oh. sorry can't help there then, i have no idea of the status of ARM drivers for these wireless devices.00:46
Austin_WallThey didn't say what was wrong though00:46
miroesq_daftykins: thanks00:46

=== Bray90820_ is now known as Bray90820
bumblefuzzEriC^^, still no00:49
Ender_Wiggindaftykins looks like No-IP has an open source firmware that works for my router, no sure if it'll cause issues though00:49
bumblefuzzis there a way to put all this back?00:49
bumblefuzzsince it isn't changing anything?00:49
Austin_Walldaftykins: are there any logs you need to see?00:51
daftykinsAustin_Wall: i think any important ones would not have been created on the failed boot - then will have been replaced on the successful boot after, unfortunately00:52
EriC^^bumblefuzz: it'll reset when you reboot, you can change it if you want right now though00:52
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: found that page yeah, DD-WRT is an open source thing, not no-ip's work, i wouldn't recommend being that drastic - was there a newer netgear version available?00:52
bumblefuzzI see00:53
Ender_Wigginonly option seems to be to create a free DynDNS and cancel it, i read they allow you to keep 1 domain for free00:53
bumblefuzzso we have to figure out what code to use to get the swap to work before making it permanent00:54
Ender_Wigginthat or just update my server's external IP whenever my ISP changes it00:54
Ender_Wigginnot sure how often that is though00:54
EriC^^bumblefuzz: well, yeah if it works you can add that line so it runs automatically when you login00:54
EriC^^bumblefuzz: dunno why it's not working though, there's also xbindkeys which might work00:54
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: is this ubuntu system the only one you have, or?00:54
Ender_Wigginnaw I have Win10 and OSX00:55
Ender_Wigginive got it set up locally just needed to allow access from outside00:55
cobracommandas soon as you edit a cron in ubuntu, is it automatically enabled?00:55
daftykinsEnder_Wiggin: you could just run no-ip's Windows updater then, if those others are on regularly enough to update the IP00:55
daftykinsi wouldn't recommend modifying the router just for this minor use :>00:56
Ender_Wigginno-ips updater what exactly is that?00:56
Ender_Wigginhaha true00:56
Ender_Wigginahh the DUC thingy?00:56
daftykinsa little Windows program you type your user+pass into, which runs on boot and updates the IP whenever you boot.00:56
Ender_Wigginis there any major issues with the ubuntu version? found it on their site00:57
Ender_Wigginid like to run it on my ubuntu because i leave it on 24/700:57
daftykinsthing is, you're likely going to be on one of the other PCs to be using teamspeak aren't you, since you'll be gaming or whatever...00:58

qubitsmdadm i believe02:04
daftykinsif so, anything BIOS level wouldn't know about a disk being a member or not02:04

Mr_CyclopsHello All, do we have an expert Ubuntu user  here? I am struggling with something and need help02:20
SchrodingersScat!ask | Mr_Cyclops02:21
ubottuMr_Cyclops: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience02:21
Mr_Cyclops:-) thanks02:21
Mr_CyclopsUbuntu 15.10 ... if I delete a file from any file manager (except Dolphin), and that directory is a softlink, the file manager crashes02:22
Mr_CyclopsUpgraded the whole system, up to date, but no change ...02:22
Mr_Cyclopsand I dont get this error at all if that directory is not a soft=linked directory02:22
Mr_Cyclopsany clues?02:22
SchrodingersScat!bugs | Mr_Cyclops, I don't have any clues.02:24
ubottuMr_Cyclops, I don't have any clues.: If you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its derivatives, please file a bug using the command « ubuntu-bug <package> » - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs for other ways to report bugs.02:24
Mr_CyclopsThank you, will definitely try that02:25
Mr_Cyclopsanother issue .... Citrix (which I suppose a known thing ) ... here are the details02:25
SchrodingersScatthunar just now didn't crash while deleting symlinked directory02:25
Mr_CyclopsRight now I am running Xubuntu 15.04 64 bit, and installed the icaclient from the Citrix's official website02:25
Mr_Cyclopsbut when I click on the link that should fork/open the .ica file, it doesn't work at all02:26
Mr_Cyclopsfollowed many blogs n tried various things, no joy. If you could suggest a blog/URL that would help best to resolve this, thanks02:26
Mr_Cyclopsthunar, you tried in 15.10 ?02:26
Mr_CyclopsLast time I tried all file managers was like 2 weeks ago, if this was fixed ... good for me, I will try again in a VM02:27
Mr_CyclopsSchrodingersScat, try not to delete the symlinked directory, but some file inside the symlinked directory, see if it crashes, tx02:28
SchrodingersScatMr_Cyclops: yep, xubuntu 15.10, I've never had that problem, it also doesn't come up for me that much.02:28
SchrodingersScatMr_Cyclops: did a touch 1 2 3 in the symlinked directory, then deleted it in thunar, nothing unexpected happened.02:29
Mr_Cyclopssounds great! I will try again today, tx for trying it out for me02:30
Mr_CyclopsAny suggestions on an effective URL for Citrix/.02:30
rritochWhere can I find the window manager scripts that are executed when a user logs in? (plasma, gnome, xfce, etc)02:32
Mr_Cyclopsrritoch, I think you can to Control Center, or Settings Manager, look for Startup applications, and add it manually02:32
Mr_CyclopsTypically it gives u a dialoge box with 3 text boxes, to choose a Name, Description and command (Suggest to simply the absolute/full path of the command/binary/script) tat you want to run at login02:33
DemannuQuick question: Thinking about using a local box I have here to bring internet in through wireless and then have a DHCP and DNS server share the wireless connection to a different subnet through ethernet. I believe this is plausible yes?02:36
rritochMr_Cyclops: Thanks, but the specific problem is that if I launch "Plasma" manually it works, but if I login to it from sddm the X server goes black during initialization02:37
rritochMr_Cyclops: XFCE login from sddm works, so I believe the problem is with the plasma "start" script executed by SDDM. I just don't know where to find it.02:38
Mr_Cyclopsrritoch, Ok, I am not a KDE user, can't help much with that, hopefully someone else in this forum might, wait and see if someone replies, tx02:39
rritochFound it, finally. /usr/share/xsessions02:42
Mr_Cyclopstx for sharing02:43
rritochDemannu: Yes that is possible. You just need to configure the DHCP server to serve the lan. Typically you would need a DHCP client setup on the wireless device unless you use a static IP outside the wireless DHCP allocated IP range and know the IP address of the wireless router.02:47
rritochDemannu: Beyond that, you probably need to setup your firewall to NAT traffic from the local network to the wireless.02:48
NYTimeshey how can I know if my OS is i686 or x86_64 and what does that even mean ? kinda confused here ;@)02:49
rritochNYTimes: i686 = 32bit, x86_64 = 64 bit. , if you type 'uname -a' in a shell it should tell you which your setup for.02:50
mastershakehey guys im having a tiny issue over here and was wondering if anyone could help..02:50
Mr_Cyclopsgo ahead mastershake02:51
Demannurritoch: I'm looking for this box to travel with me and act as a project bench/network services provider while in the field, so it's assumed DHCP on the wireless network. Want to make a secure subnet for the workbench/dev environment02:51
mastershakei have an important .rar im trying to open that i created on Win8.1 and locked it with a password, but im having trouble opening it now.02:51
mastershakeits just empty when i open it up02:51
Pinkamena_DI have a secondary windows partition. on /dev/sda1 (ubuntu on /dev/sda2) I wanted more room so I got a second hard drive for windows. I used clonezilla to copy over /dev/sda1 to /dev/sdb1. I want to get it working before deleting the old partition.02:51
Mr_CyclopsNYTimes, the command is uname -i02:51
Mr_Cyclopsor better just type uname -a02:51
reisioPinkamena_D: be simpler to migrate Ubuntu02:51
reisiofar simpler02:52
NYTimesrritoch: thank you what a command so usefull thx02:52
rritochDemannu: In that case you setup your wireless connection with DHCP, setup a DHCP server on the lan, and setup your firewall to NAT between LAN and Wireless (internet).02:52
Pinkamena_DGrubcfg makes an entry tor /dev/sdb1 automatically, but for some reason when you select it it actually boots to /dev/sda102:52
NYTimesMr_Cyclops: it returns "unknown"02:53
reisioPinkamena_D: you cloned it, so Windows thinks it's on the first device02:53
reisioPinkamena_D: try switching the drive order02:53
Pinkamena_DI want the bigger (sda) drive for ubuntu.02:53
reisioPinkamena_D: try switching the drive order02:53
mastershakeany ideas ?02:53
rritochDemannu: I beleive there are some "complexities" to setting up NAT to a dynamic IP since firewall rules are by IP address though. It is likely you'll need to code some of your own scripts, or find one online that's pre-built for that purpose.02:53
Pinkamena_Din grub, or bios, or somewhere else?02:53
reisioPinkamena_D: bios if you can there02:54
reisioPinkamena_D: otherwise simply switch the cables02:54
reisiomastershake: about what02:54
rritochNYTimes: At least that is how things were with ipchains some 15 years ago... My linux/unix knowledge is a bit dusty.02:55
rritocherr ^^ Demannu02:55
mastershakereisio, my password protected .rar i created on win8.1 is empty when i goto open it on xubuntu and doesnt prompt for pw02:55
Pinkamena_Dill try it and come and complain if it fails. If the world ends before I am done trying, thanks for the tip.02:55
reisiomastershake: what does 'file' say it is?02:55
mcheleni keep getting "The following packages cannot be authenticated!" even after running `apt-get update` and `apt-key update` any ideas?02:55
reisioPinkamena_D: :)02:55
mastershakeRAR data archive, v6c02:56
EriC^^mchelen: change the mirror maybe02:56
Demannurritoch: I'm just installing Ubuntu server now on the box, I'll experiment with that and see what I can come up with. I know for a fact that a lot of my worksites use wildly different subnet setups, so I may need to automate it somehow.02:56
DemannuI mean, it's not terribly hard once I think about it. Simply grab the current IP and replace in a template then update NAT rules that way02:57
reisiomastershake: I doubt that02:57
mastershakedoubt what?02:58
mchelenEriC^^: ok let me try02:58
reisiomastershake: your answer02:58
reisiomastershake: do you have unrar? dpkg -L unrar02:58
NYTimesrritoch: but at02:58
mchelenEriC^^: ah yep that did it, thanks!02:59
mastershakewhat does that command do?02:59
EriC^^mchelen: no problem02:59
reisiomastershake: lists files if you have unrar02:59
=== Monthrect is now known as Piper-Off
NYTimesleast u know what u talk about which is not my case thank you rritoch02:59
rritochDemannu: Probably, also take a look @ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reserved_IP_addresses which may provide you with some "options". It's fairly safe to assume that your connection points are following "proper" networking policies. So if you bend a few rules, such as using the range, you can fairly safely assume you won't conflict with your connection points.03:01
mastershakeokay reisio it listed a handfull of files in /usr/share03:01
reisiomastershake: how about a binary? dpkg -L unrar | egrep -i 'bin|opt'03:02
Demannurritoch: That's a fantastic avenue, I'll investigate that too. I'll report back once I test it out03:02
DemannuFound a really neat micro form factor computer, traded a client for it. It's only an atom, but it's gonna be a great gateway/services box03:03
DemannuIt's roughly the size of a shoebox03:03
mastershakereisio, it said /usr/bin and then /usr/bin/unrar-nonfre03:03
DemannuBut perhaps 3/4ths of the width03:03
reisiosounds large03:03
DemannuLet me measure.03:03
mastershakei dont understand03:03
reisiomastershake: what's 'unrar l path/to/your/file' say?03:04
mastershakekindly excuse my ignorance, i havent used linux in a while.03:04
Demannu(inches) 14 length, 8 width, 6.25 high03:04
reisiosounds enormous :)03:05
reisiobut no additional cost03:05
coraxxHello everyone ... question .... upgrading Ubuntu from 12.04 to 14.04, how does one upgrade the postgresql data files, so they work with Ubuntu 14.04 postgresql-version (9.3) ?03:05
DemannuI was thinking about scooping a PiZero, I've already got a wireless+ethernet shield that would work with it. That may do everything I need as well for about $2003:06
reisiocoraxx: you'll have to read postgresql's docs for that03:06
reisiocoraxx: or the docs for whatever software you're using the DB/s with03:06
coraxxreisio: The Docs refers to a tool called pg_upgrade that Ubuntu 14.04 will not install :-(03:07
reisiocoraxx: ask apt-file where it is03:07
mastershake"reisio, unknown option l"03:08
coraxxreisio: its in a package that conflicts with the postgresql package.  The package is called postgres-xc ...and requires that "postgresql" is removed upon installation.03:08
reisiomastershake: okay, try this instead: 'unrar-nonfree l path/to/your/file' say?03:09
mastershakegot it thanks reisio !!!!03:10
reisiomastershake: you probably have unrar-free installed; it's useless, run this: sudo apt-get remove unrar-free03:12
freakyywhat is this taskbar icon bar in the lower left in ubuntu-gnome? is there a way i can merge it to the top taskbar or how its called?03:12
reisioand hopefully that, or that plus sudo apt-get install --reinstall unrar will fix your default 'unrar'03:12
Dougie187Anyone ever seen this issue before? http://pastebin.com/aFPX4b2b03:18
Dougie187my laptop won't recognize usb devices.03:18
Dougie187Using 15.1003:19
reisioDougie187: how many ports?03:21
Dougie187Three total03:21
reisionone work?03:21
Dougie187Nope, I'm trying to plug in a usb HDD03:22
Dougie187I can try with a different device though03:22
OneM_IndustriesHey, I am having an issue with drivers.03:22
OneM_IndustriesVideo card drivers*03:22
reisioOneM_Industries: neat03:23
Dougie187Here's maybe some more useful information: http://pastebin.com/CHTt098A03:23
reisioDougie187: so you tried them all03:23
Dougie187That's the full `dmesg | grep usb`03:23
rritochDemannu: Well, I've never tried it, but in theory for a configuration like yours a VPS could greatly help, if the hardware can support a VPS. With the aid of a VPS it should be possible to setup your network as Wireless (Lan) > Virtual Network (Carrier-Grade-NAT IP range) > Eithernet (valid lan), with a configuration like that you  have a valid lan comming in, a valid lan comming out03:23
Dougie187Yes, I tried all of them.03:23
OneM_IndustriesI set it to the x.org drivers, and now the machine stalls after asking if I want to boot into ubuntu or memtest.03:23
OneM_IndustriesIt has a blinking underline on the top left corner of the screen, and is not responding.03:25
Demannurritoch: I believe I could make a lightweight one using a docker container.03:25
Sonderbladelightdm fails to start and i have this message in the log: DEBUG: Seat: Can't find session 'gnome-xmonad' any idea how to solve that?03:25
OneM_IndustriesAnyone know how to set the drivers back to a different set?03:26
rritochDemannu: The only time the system wouldn't work would be if you connected to a carrier grade NAT network which also uses the same IP range as you, as long as you stick with class C lan, the chances of a conflict would be infintisimal. Heck if you coded it as a mobile app such a configuration could theoretically create a global peer-to-peer internet.03:26
Bashing-omOneM_Industries: A  /etc/X11/xorg.conf used to be used and now with open source not required ??03:27
OneM_IndustriesI was using the Nvidia drivers. Then I switched to X.ORG. Now the machine won't boot.03:28
Bashing-omOneM_Industries: Was there  that file in a former proprietary driver install ? open source does not use it amd really messes with X when it is parsed .03:29
OneM_IndustriesI do not know.03:29
rritochDemannu: The only real complexity with a global peer to peer network would be creating the routing policies... It is something I'd love to do, but while I can figure out the connectivity, I don't know any algorithm that could handle the routing.03:29
OneM_IndustriesI can find out though.03:29
Bashing-omOneM_Industries: Boot the recovery console and ' ls -al /etc/X11/xorg.conf ' .03:30
OneM_IndustriesThere is no such file.03:31
JimuW: Failed to fetch http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/wily/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found [IP: 80]03:32

AprelCan ffproxy be used to throttle/rate limit?03:33
OneM_IndustriesBashing-om: ls: cannot access /etc/X11/xorg.conf03:33
reisioAprel: I doubt something with 'proxy' in its name has that particular innate purpose03:33
reisioAprel: try trickle03:33
OneM_IndustriesThat is what it returned when I ran that command.03:33
Bashing-omOneM_Industries: Any driver al all loaded ' sudo lshw -C display ' . No xorg file in this instance is a good thing .03:34
JimuWait, why am I getting errors fetching binary-i386 stuff on a 64 bit install?03:34
Viking667'llo all. Is there an image viewer that can take a file containing a list of images as an argument?03:35
reisioJimu: you tell us03:35
Viking667i.e. somemagicimageviewer -f myfileof-imagenames.txt03:35
Aprelhmmm... My mistake. I figured thottling was a common feature of proxies. Looking into trickle. Thanks reisio03:35
OneM_IndustriesBashing-om: About to get you the result of that, hold on.03:35
Viking667it seems eog (my everyday image viewer) is a bit lightweight in that respect.03:36
reisioAprel: in the Unix world (and anyplace sane), an app that does more than a single job is a silly app03:36
Jimureisio: i wish i could. the "About This Computer" says it's 64 bit, I installed it from a 64-bit ISO... do I  need to edit my sources.list?03:36
Viking667reisio: so, that means that most of the "apps" we have today (if you stretch the definition some) would then be "silly"?03:37
reisioJimu: what's the problem?03:37
JimuViking667: don't get into this argument03:37
reisioViking667: yup03:37
Viking667Can't say I'd disagree much there, though most people would03:37
OneM_IndustriesBashing-om: Here you go! http://imgur.com/UyqGVjo03:38
Viking667I guess we've all got too used to fully-GUI applications that sing and dance too.03:38
Bashing-omOneM_Industries: Look'n .03:38
Viking667... instead of stringing together 19 separate commands for one file.03:38
JimuLinux is just so sprawling... it's hard to get a grip on03:38
Viking667mmm. I found that with Windows.03:38
Jimuwhich DE? which DE launcher? Why is this 64 bit version giving me apt-get errors about i386 files? 404 errors, nonetheless?03:39
Bashing-omone ya have a FGLRX driver loaded .. and no config file . What release is this , and again what do you want to do ?03:40
reisioJimu: what's the error?03:40
OneM_Industries14.04, load a driver that actually works.03:40
JimuAlso, I think the Ubuntu Application Updater is not very well integrated with apt-get, so you have sync issues about what needs updating03:40
JimuW: Failed to fetch http://extras.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/wily/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found [IP: 80]03:41

reisioJimu: 404 just means it isn't there03:41

Viking667All I have here is Precise to Utopic.03:42
Viking667(and that's from that site linked above)03:42
reisioJimu: it says 'Packages' and not 'Packages.gz'?03:43
reisiookay, so someone thought they'd be all smart and gzip a file that apps loo for without it being gzipped03:43
reisiolook* for03:43
Bashing-omOneM_Industries: Try: ' sudo amdconfig --initial ' If yoy are at the recomvery console will have to remount the OS for R/W .03:43
Viking667reisio: actualy, that's not the only issue. wily isn't even AT the site.03:43
reisioViking667: irrelevant, it's at plenty of sites03:44
Viking667true, but he's looking for wily "extras"03:44
Jimuwhat counts as "extras" anyway?03:44
Viking667... not multiverse/universe.03:44
OneM_IndustriesBashing-om: How would I remount the OS to do so?03:45
Viking667It almost looks like they removed "extras", I don't have it here in my sources.03:49
OneM_IndustriesBashing-om: Nevermind, figured it out.03:49
Bashing-omOneM_Industries: mount -o remount,rw / (Note there is no space after the comma.03:49
OneM_Industriesamdconfig: command not found.03:50
Viking667weird. so it's saying that the fglrx package never installed?03:51
Bashing-omOneM_Industries: ' dpkg -l | grep fglrx ' let;s see what is installed .03:51
OneM_IndustriesI don't know.03:51
Viking667OneM: try this at a Terminal:  dpkg -l fglrx03:52
reisioOneM_Industries: can always ask apt-file what provides it03:52
Viking667fglrx provides that binary.03:52
Viking667... I just looked it up about 40 seconds ago03:52
OneM_IndustriesI have the output, hold on.03:53
reisioViking667: now he just needs you installed locally03:53
OneM_IndustriesHeh, yep.03:53
Viking667sorry dude.03:54
Viking667I've already been criticised enough times.03:54
reisiohaven't we all :p03:54
OneM_Industries^ The output.03:54
Viking667OneM_Industries: check out your /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*  (i.e. all the files in there) for any referring to "extras"03:55
Bashing-omOneM_Industries: Suits my thought process better to pastebin the terminal putput of ' dpkg -l | grep fglrx ' .03:57
OneM_IndustriesBashing-om: I just posted a photo of that output.03:58
Viking667Seems like fglrx-core installed, but fglrx didn't.03:58

anon2442lol drone is holding down the fort?04:00
Viking667that must be one absolutely HUGE drone...04:00
Viking667OneM_Industries: hm?04:00
OneM_IndustriesInstalled fglrx, ran amdconfig --initial, and it works!04:01
Viking667Right, I'll head on back to my first question.04:01
mardhelloworld(from diy-irc-client, sorry for bother)04:03
Viking667I've got a list of files (png, in this case) in a text file, how do I get eog to show me all those files as one large list? (all the files are scattered throughout multiple directories)04:04
mardyep! only command line without GUI04:06
Bashing-omViking667: Something like ' sudo find / -name "*.png" > myfile ' ?04:06
reisioViking667: could try cat file | xargs eog04:06
Viking667bashingthat's what I did04:06
anon2442i always try ' echo penis ' first04:06
Viking667Bashing-om: that's what I did to get "myoutput"04:06
Viking667I'll try the xargs thing, I'd forgotten about that command.04:07
reisioor eog /dev/stdin < file04:07
reisiokinda depends on what eog does with stdin04:07
Viking667reisio: ha. I didn't think of that either... mind you, eog is having a little trouble, myoutput.txt happens to be 10Mb in size.04:07
reisioif it's a sane app, it'll work like so: cat file | eog04:07
reisioif it's only slightly less sane: cat file | eog -04:08
reisioif it's only slightly less sane: cat file | eog /dev/stdin04:08
Viking667xargs seems to work.04:08
reisioViking667: what're you looking at them for?04:08
Viking667Trying to find a particular picture.04:08
Viking667the images are from mapcrafter, so they're a whole LOT of png tiles for a minecraft mapping program.04:09
reisioViking667: and why're you viewing them04:09
Viking667because I want to?04:09
reisioViking667: oh, then use /usr/bin/justcuz04:10
reisioseriously, do you want to scrutinize them individually?04:10
Viking667nope, no such file04:10
Viking667reisio: seriously, yes. I don't have much choice.04:10
reisioViking667: why not?04:10
reisiooh trying to find a particular picture04:10
Viking667I'm trying to find specifically WHICH tile shows the area I'm interested in.04:11
Viking667I mapped a large minecraft world (10k by 10k blocks)04:11
reisioso it's a screenshot of the world?04:12
anon2442if you get pissed off and need a laugh, program your computer to say "justin bieber is sexy, im a belieber." cracks me up every fucking time04:12

Viking667no way I could put all the PNGs into one folder, as they're all named stuff like 1.png, 2.png etc...04:15
reisioViking667: so?04:15
Viking667If I could have done that (i.e. they all differed by name) then I would simply have used nautilus or something similar04:16
reisioyou can do that, but a list of each file is just as good04:17
Viking667A file browser doesn't do too well being fed that04:17
reisioit could, but that's not the point04:17
reisiowould you rather use nautilus than eog?04:17

Viking667nautilus only shows you one folder at a time, because that's what it was built for.04:18
reisiofolder can be anything you want, however04:18
Viking667It doesn't show you ONE window with x images (at a time) when those images are all scattered around.04:18
reisioViking667: so that's a "yes"?04:19
Viking667I want a gallery, so I can scan multiple images in one sweep, but I'm not going to end up with that.04:20

CyborgCygnus<Bashing-om> Yeah but how would I skip straight to 15:10 then?05:16
Bashing-omCyborgCygnus: Only means then is a fresh install . OR await the release of 16.04. then is a direct upgrade 14.04 to 16.04. LTS to LTS releases .05:18
CyborgCygnus<Bashing-om> Oh so you meant I needed to go from 14.04 > 14.10 > 15.04 > 15.10? Cause I'm on 14.04 & that updater is trying to put me straight on 15.04.05:19
Bashing-omCyborgCygnus: Correct .. and the updater is trying to go to 14.10 whuch is ROL and the repository is not there . ya got to do the EOL upgrade @ 14.10 .05:21
Bashing-omROL/EOL **05:22
CyborgCygnus<Bashing-om> So do I just have to do a clean install of the latest? So is it impossible to do the upgrade that I'm attempting, what would you recommend I do?05:23

testingforreasonOdd idea: I've written a "shell script", (not really, just a list of a handful of commands that take forever), and started running it. While it's running Command 1, I've realized that I have listed command 2 and 3 are backwards. Can I allow it to finish command 1, and stop before running command 2 (really3)?05:24
rritochCyborgCygnus: I can't recommend it, but you CAN technically update your /etc/apt/sources.list file to the latest release, and do apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, apt-get dist-upgrade. It is a dirty business that can make your system unstable. I'm sure that's why my system is unstable because I went from debian to ubuntu trusty up to vivid this way, wily was my first real upgrade and it crashed ...05:24
rritoch@ 66% so I ended up needing to finish the upgrade manually.05:24
badbodhtestingforreason, are you testing our programming skills ? some of us have none. yet better with linux than you are :P05:25
Bashing-omCyborgCygnus: The tutorial gives instruction . you must go the EOL route. Personally ... As 16.04 is but a few months away, I would wait .05:25
testingforreasonNot a programming thing. I've just set a few large files to download, and then unzip them, and so on. I already started this, and then realized I mixed up the order on the later commands about an hour into the download. It's still got another hour to go, which I don't want to waste.05:27
testingforreasonI was hoping for something along the lines of ctrl-z (allow current command to finish running, halt before second command)05:28
testingforreasonthat is, not that ctrl-z does that, but what I'm looking for.05:28
testingforreasonJust looking for a finer control on a running script than I know of.05:30
badbodhtricky, your script is open in bash so can;t edit it without killing bash. and killing bash means your first command dies too.05:31
LonelyDanbouh... how do I find drivers for my motherboard? The official website only has drivers for Windows. I was hoping drivers would allow me to see CPU and possibly northbridge chip temperatures.05:34
gsoLonelyDanbo, Usually "lm-sensors" allows you to do that... I find it often has generic support for most sensors05:35
LonelyDanbogso, the generic support is only showing 1 result for a k10temp-pci PCI adapter, with very low temperatures.05:36
LonelyDanbowell, it has a 2nd result, fam15h_power-pci but it only reports wattage rather than temperature.05:37

LonelyDanbobadbodh, it did show a "yes" result for... family 'ITE'. also it did a bunch of scans of NVIDIA which I don't remember it doing last time, and yet it didn't find anything.05:44
badbodhat final step it basically adds some modules to some config file (or symlinks to /etc/systemd)05:45

bekksLobsterAttack: For doing so, you have to find out which driver is being used in the live session.08:52

LobsterAttackbekks: or can I conceivably just copy the one here and overwrite the one in the other installation?09:18

boobloohey guys does anyone use Snort on ubuntu?10:56
cfhowlettboobloo, answer: yes.  someone somewhere probably does.  refocus your question and include details for a meaningful answer10:57
boobloocfhowlett, Ok sure. I'm currently trying to get a simple ping rule working. Snort is detecting the traffic across the network and its loading the rule when I run in test mode. I've added my rule to local.rules and included it to snort.conf. however the alert never gets hit for some reason. If anyone could help me troubleshoot I'd appreciate it10:59
TJ-boobloo: some earlier rule short-circuiting the processinf maybe?11:00
booblooTJ-, Hmm I've got all other rules commented out?11:01
booblooAs a test I just wrote some gibberish into local.rules but no error was thrown or anything11:04
boobloooo I appear to be missing my so_rules from my rules directory11:07
TJ-boobloo: I've only just joined so missed your earlier commentary but that's the 1st thing I always check, because it has caught me out so many times in many services11:07

alhamdulillahmy wlan0 only supports 5ghz above from channel 36 and above and my router only allows to set channel until 11. is it possible to get 5ghz connections for my wlan0?12:03
=== lotharn5 is now known as lotharn
BluesKajalhamdulillah, depends on the router capability and 3.4.or 6ghz options12:06
BluesKajoops 2.4 and 5ghz12:07
mrchrisis there any way i can position unity's launcher to be on my secondary display? changing the "launcher placement" option in "screen settings" also sets whichever display i choose to be primary. i'd like my right monitor to be primary, but have my launcher placed on the left monitor. thanks :)12:07
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, router does support 5ghz12:08
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, but it only supports 11 channels (1 to 11)12:08
MonkeyDustmrchris  sounds like something you can set in dconf-editor12:08
mrchrisnever heard of that before, i'll take a look at it thanks :)12:09
linociscohi all. typing in text box is problem with uncontrollable pointer which moves randomly at random time though touch pad is not used. how to solve it? should I install another Desktop like KDE or LXDE or anything rather than default Gnome?12:09
EriC^^mrchris: you can drag the picture of the display to the left or right12:09
BluesKajalhamdulillah, yes that's seems standard , but it also depends on your country's broadcast regs12:10
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, I have tried enabling 5ghz and only my android phone can connect to it. my laptop can't see 5ghz but can see 2.4gh.12:11
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, running 'iwlist wlan0 freq' shows 5ghz is for channel 36 and above12:12
BluesKajal for example in Canada , the 5Ghz options are restricted to  11a,11n and 11an mixed12:12
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, what does it mean12:14
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, wlan0 shows 802.11abgn12:14
BluesKajalhamdulillah, so if you have your router set to your country's regulatory setting them you won't be breaking any broadcast kaws12:14
bgardnerlinocisco, sounds like the heel of your hand is brushing the touchpad as you type, which happens to me.  Have you tried disabling the touchpad?12:15
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, I'd be breaking laws if I want to use 5ghz12:16
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, I'd be breaking laws if I want to use 5ghz?12:16
BluesKajalhamdulillah, I havr no idea12:18
BluesKajwhat your country's wifi broadcast regs are12:19
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, neither do I. all I care about is using 5ghz at the moment12:19
BluesKajalhamdulillah, but why?12:19
linociscobgardner, I didn't touch touchpad. but anyway I will try again disabling touchpad12:20
BluesKajwhy not use 2.4 and 5 and let the router decide which is best , alhamdulillah?12:20
BluewolfHi all, my Docky application has vanished after updates. Though installed it will not run at all or appear before my desktop. Any know how I can fix this?12:20
MonkeyDustBluewolf  start by reinstalling it, see if that fixes it12:21
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, I'm using a dlna server and I found out that it doesn't work across different frequencies12:21
BluewolfMonkeyDust: Yeah I did, completely removed it and then reinstalled it. I still won't run. Even when I physically click it.12:22
BluesKajal if you have the 2,4 set at chan 6 which is usuallu the default change to a lower or higher chan to get a signal that doesn't have as much local interference12:24
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, 2.4 isn't a problem. every device works with 2.4 but apparently only my phone can connect to 5ghz and no other devices.12:25
alhamdulillahBluesKaj, the channel is set to Auto in router12:26
BluesKajalhamdulillah, id your phone android?12:26

motaka2akik: now? :qw ?13:09
akikmotaka2: ZZ saves the file. then "sudo update-grub"13:09
akikor no sudo if you are root13:09
ioriaLobsterAttack, can you post the exact model ? lspci | grep VGA13:10
LobsterAttackioria: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 661/741/760 PCI/AGP or 662/761Gx PCIE VGA Display Adapter13:11
motaka2akik: :wq says readonly option is set13:12
LobsterAttackI know it's a total piece of shit, but my desktop's motherboard melted down and I just badly need something to at least access the internet and stuff until I can afford to build a new one.13:12
akikmotaka2: :wq! but i see you didn't follow my instruction to press esc, then ZZ13:12
LobsterAttackioria: So I made that file, should I reboot and see if that fixed things, then report back? Or wait for a sec?13:12
motaka2akik: esc + ZZ also gives the same error13:13
akikmotaka2: try :wq!13:13
ioriaLobsterAttack, yes... you can try also with this : http://paste.ubuntu.com/13542041/13:13
akikmotaka2: i'm not sure if you need to "mount -o remount,rw /" to make the root file system writable13:14
motaka2akik: cant open file for writing13:14
LobsterAttackioria: that's for the exact model of card in this laptop then, you think?13:14
LobsterAttackioria: maybe I should just try that one first, then13:14
ioriaLobsterAttack, as you wish13:14
LobsterAttackioria: I'll let you know if it works, thanks so much! I've been working on this for hours, haha.13:14
ioriaLobsterAttack, no problem, good luck13:15
akikmotaka2: if "touch /test" fails, you need to use the mount command13:16
motaka2akik: evrything is gone13:18
akikmotaka2: probably because the root file system was not writable when you tried to edit the file13:19
satyenhello there13:19
motaka2akik: Could you please tell me what i should do again? I ran the remount too13:20
akikmotaka2: can you now run "touch /test" succesfully? you can rm /test if the touch command is successful13:21
akikmotaka2: make GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT= and GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET= have an empty value, remove "quiet splash" and uncomment GRUB_TERMINAL=console (in /etc/default/grub)13:22

mobile3anyone there to help?13:24
MonkeyDustmobile3  start with a question13:25
motaka2akik: nothing13:25
mobile3I have a linux server somewhere... I use that through shell... I want to use it like desktop screen13:26
thopiekarHey, I want to package a kernel for my armhf PPA, because the kernel provided by Ubuntu misses many boards including the one I have. Do you have an idea were to start? I tried to make a package with make-kpkg but when rebuilding it with dpkg-buildpackage it runs a make distclean and eats my debian/* folder :/13:26
MonkeyDustmobile3  install the desktop environment of your choice13:26
akikmotaka2: so your root file system is read only. is this a hard disk or some other storage device?13:26
mobile3MonkeyDust: I have bought a vps where I have installed ubuntu, I use it through ssh, I want to use it as desktop how to ?13:27
motaka2akik: What do you mean ?13:27
akikmotaka2: i'm just trying to understand why the remount,rw didn't work13:27
MonkeyDustmobile3  so you want to learn ssh?13:28
motaka2akik: it returned no error so I think it was succeesful13:28
mobile3MonkeyDust : No, I want to use that remote sever visually not through shell13:28
akikmotaka2: are you using the root account now in the recovery mode?13:29
mobile3MonkeyDust: I am using windows at my home13:29
motaka2akik: yes13:29
MonkeyDustmobile3  then you need a client in windows, ask in ##windows13:29
akikmotaka2: if you run "mount -o remount,rw /" and then "echo $?" right after, it should say 0. can you confirm?13:30
mobile3MonkeyDust: but I have to access that remote server where ubuntu is installed13:30
MonkeyDustmobile3  yes, but you're working in windows, we can't help with that13:31
mobile3I heard something I need to install there... something like vnc13:31
ubottuVNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX13:32
akikmobile3: you can install x2go server on the vps and x2go client on your client machine13:32
motaka2akik: no it gives a long list13:32
thedoctor46hi all13:32
akikmotaka2: use pastebin.com to show the output13:32
thedoctor46I need a good reason to delete Windows 10 forever and keep using ubuntu :)13:33
akikmotaka2: it might be hard if you don't have network access :p13:33
motaka2akik: I dont have a network access13:34
akikecho $? just shows the return code from the previous ran command. it shouldn't print out a long list13:34

badbodhlogglog, that ppa is defunct, disable/remove it13:44
akikmobile3: try to install x2go server on the vps and we'll see how it goes13:44
badbodhlogglog, or maybe tualatrix ppa isn;t updated for 15.10, give it some time13:45
akikmobile3: x2go client uses ssh for all network connectivity so you need to open the ssh port on the vps iptables13:45

KiborgHello. I have Ubuntu 15.10 64 bit with Geforce GTX 970. I am using Nvidia propertary drivers form additional drivers. Until recently it has wokred like charm, but after the latest update I am unable to even log in, I get login loop.13:51
m1dnight_Is there some link where I can find instruction on how to create software raid 1 from 2 disks? But not as boot disks, as storage disk.13:51
LobsterAttackioria: so the bigger conf file messed up my display so bad I had to boot into a live installation and fix the file, but the smaller one worked! Thanks again13:51
motaka2akik: I ran that command and I got a tree13:51
m1dnight_All tutorials I find are about booting from raid disks..13:51
ioriaLobsterAttack, good... god job13:51
ioriaLobsterAttack, but you don't need a live, just open a console and remove xorg.conf from 7etx/X1113:52
LobsterAttackioria: will changes I make in xrandr typically be gone after a restart?13:53
ioriaLobsterAttack, yep, i think so13:53
akikmotaka2: is the error you received "Error: Can't have a partition outside the disk!" ?13:53
LobsterAttackioria: darn... I was going to mess around with the modes because it's always defaulting to 61hz instead of 60, and I see tiny little weird tearing and artifacts every second or so13:54
TJ-m1dnight_: "mdadm --create /dev/mdX --level=1 --raid-disks=2 /dev/sdY /dev/sdZ"13:54
LobsterAttackioria: guess I should just leave well enough alone13:54
ioriaLobsterAttack, cat /etc/issue13:54
motaka2akik: running sudo lsblk doesnt give any errors but a tree with the root sda, there is no term like fail or error in it13:54
LobsterAttackioria: huh?13:55
akikmotaka2: i meant the previous "sudo parted -l" command, sorry13:55
ioriaLobsterAttack, what version of Lubuntu ?13:55
motaka2akik: it scrools to the second page13:55
LobsterAttackioria: newest possible? I think?13:56
ioriaLobsterAttack, cat /etc/issue13:56

TJ-motaka2: did you configure that system with a RAID array ?13:58
motaka2TJ-: Whats a raid array ?13:58
TJ-motaka2: multiple physical disks combined to form a single logical drive the OS sees13:58
LobsterAttackioria: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13542491/13:59
TJ-motaka2: "partition outside disk" is a common issue with a RAID-0 stripe when the disk gets 'mixed up'13:59
motaka2TJ-: I have just one hard drive connected. I am normal user13:59
ioriaLobsterAttack, ols stuff, hu ?13:59
LobsterAttackioria: old AND shitty14:00
akiki'm not sure if this causes data loss, but the partition table should be fixed somehow14:00
ioriaLobsterAttack, i would try with Lubuntu 14.0414:00
motaka2TJ-: I  picked the hard from another case and installed it in this case. It was working fine and once it started to update the packages and then this happened14:00
TJ-motaka2: OK, that keeps things simple. Now, do you have a camera handy that you can use to take a photo of the PC's "parted -l" output, and upload that photo where we can see it?14:00

TJ-motaka2: aha! you see the second block on the 1st image? /dev/mapper/nvidia_afeicaag5 ... that naming tells me that there's a disk taken from a motherboard that had an onboard Nvidia  'fake' RAID controller, and the disk was part of a RAID array14:26
motaka2TJ-: Yes, I have used  another hard drive in this case. What should I do ? It was working for a while14:27
motaka2TJ-: by another I dont mean two. I have just one hard drive that I took from another case to this case14:28
TJ-motaka2: right, but on the original PC the disk was connected to the nvidia 'fake' RAID controller and used to create a RAID-0 array using the single disk. That means the controller writes metadata to the underyling device and the 'RAID' array appears slightly smaller than the underlying disk.14:30
motaka2TJ-: :( I dont understand even a single word. But is there a solution ?14:31
TJ-motaka2: the output from 'parted -l' isn't very accurate, we need to redo it so I can see the actual sector start/end numbers. Use "parted /dev/sda unit s print" and photograph+upload again please14:36

akikmobile3: hold on, i'll check if unity is supported14:53
akikmobile3: x2go client has an entry for both gnome and unity14:54
TJ-motaka2: OK, that is starting to confirm my hypothesis. The raw drive has 160,086,528 sectors (~80GiB) but the last partition ends at 150,055,594 - suggesting the RAID meta-data is using the final 30,934 sectors. Let's check that with another photo! "parted /dev/mapper/nvidia_afeicaag unit s print"14:54
akikdoes ubuntu desktop equal to unity, i don't know14:54

blueberr_join #java15:00
motaka2TJ-: Can you see it ?15:01
TJ-motaka2: that's good, you can see that this 'fake' RAID device is 2 sectors smaller than the raw device /dev/sda , this has 160,086,526 sectors15:01
TJ-motaka2: so, at least now we know precisely what is going on. Now to figure out the best way to work around it15:02
TJ-motaka2: OK, as for the 'parted' message "Can't have a partition outside the disk!" we can ignore that. That is a false error, due to parted trying to treat a file-system partition (partition 5 of the fakeRAID device) as a raw disk.15:05
TJ-motaka2: So, as I missed your description of the original fault, can you explain what happens at boot-time?15:06
TJ-oh drat! he lost the connection15:06
motaka3TJ-: I am here15:07
akikTJ-: his computer didn't boot but to the recovery mode, the file system was read only even with remount,rw15:07
TJ-motaka3: haha great15:07
motaka3TJ-: While starting ubuntu 12.04 after seeing the grub os selection page , I see the mouse pointer for a secons and then I see a black screen. I tried to load by editing the grub with nomodeset by pressing ctrl+e and then then changing it and then pressing ctrl+x15:07
motaka3but not only nothiing changed but also after the restart I see nomodeset is removed from the grub15:07
TJ-motaka3: firstly, edits to the GRUB menu done at boot-time only affect that boot - they aren't saved15:08
TJ-motaka3: so don't concern yourself on that point15:08
motaka3TJ-: So what should I do step by step to get my desktop back ?15:09

_cbIf I am writing a program where there will be a large number of users but only fileA and FileB per user is it better to have a user folder and inside it File A and File B (many folders, few files per folder) or a FILE A folder, and a FILE B folder and inside a user file (Few Folders but many files per Folder) or it does not matter?15:13
TJ-motaka3: there should have only been one line from that command which you can just type here... you only need use photo upload/pastebin for lots of lines. Whilst you're stuck in Recovery with no network, we'll be lenient on that rule though :)15:13
motaka3TJ-: Please check15:13
motaka3TJ-: :)15:15
TJ-motaka3: ahhh, you got lots of lines because you didn't notice I had a space in the grep: '/ ' so it would only match that first line you see there. So, the root file-system is coming from the fake-RAID device15:16
TJ-motaka3: make sure you have the space this time and show us the result of "grep '/ ' /proc/mounts "15:17
motaka3TJ-: Sorry /dev/mapper/nvidia_afeicaag5 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro)15:17
mobile3akik: are you there ?15:18
akikmobile3: here15:18
TJ-motaka3: OK, and now show us what that last command gives you. it should be similar but not entirely the same15:18
mobile3akik: I installed it on server and also in windows. Now what to do ? How to connect ?15:19
akikmobile3: did you open the ssh port on the vps iptables?15:19
mobile3akik: how ?15:19
akikmobile3: do you use ufw to handle iptables?15:20
mobile3akik: I don't know what is ufw15:20
mobile3akik: I do not manage iptable, by default whatever is there is there15:21
akikmobile3: ok you can run "sudo ufw enable" and then "sudo ufw allow ssh/tcp" to open the ssh port15:21
motaka2TJ-: uploaded15:21
mobile3akik: -bash: ufw: command not found15:21
akikmobile3: i'm not sure what you mean by whatever is there. are you in control of the vps?15:21
sulinWhat's this?15:21
mobile3akik: I installed Webuzo control panel which do it15:22
sulinXchat 是用来干什么的?15:23
akikmobile3: "dpkg -l | grep ufw" does that return a line about ufw ?15:23
mobile3akik: no result15:23
akikmobile3: the other choice is that there are no ip filtering rules. you can check with "sudo iptables -L -n -v"15:24
sulinIs there someone tell me what's this for15:24
akikmobile3: which ubuntu version is installed there?15:24

=== vim is now known as Guest75621
mobile3akik: I have started it15:27
zykotick9jackcom: do you mean, get security updates or do you mean update to a new release of ubuntu?15:27
TJ-motaka2: first, let's try making it read-write with "mount --no-mtab -o remount,rw /"  then do "grep '/  ' /proc/mounts again and just tell me if it now shows it as 'rw' not 'ro'15:27
jct500thzXfce has this stupid glitch that's happened  before... but I forgot how to fix it.15:28
akikmobile3: on the first page it asks for about the connection, hostname, username, desktop15:28
akikmobile3: those are for the vps server details15:28
jct500thzWhen I log out, and log back in later, it launches all the apps that I had up last time, but I don't want that.15:28
jackcomzykotick9: both15:29
zykotick9jackcom: pick one ;)15:29
jct500thzI want it to NOT use the last session that I had.15:29
jct500thzBut it doesn't give me the option.15:29
jct500thzIs there like a Terminal command I can use instead?15:29
mobile3akik: there is session type, what should I give, unity ??15:30
akikmobile3: i guess "ubuntu-desktop" means unity. can someone confirm?15:30
mobile3akik: or gnome, kde15:30
jackcomfirst zykotick915:30
jct500thzI want to disable the session-restore on Xubuntu15:30
motaka2TJ-: I hate linux15:30
ikoniaakik: ubuntu-desktop is unity15:30
TJ-motaka2: I love it :) - can't do diagnosis like this on Windows :)15:31
jct500thzWhereas it doesn't give me an option anymore, I want to disable it anyway, because I don't want it.15:31
ioriajct500thz, take a look here maybe : http://askubuntu.com/questions/382331/xubuntu-reopens-last-session-applications-even-though-it-shouldnt15:31
zykotick9jackcom: to get security updates for your current install, one method - from terminal, is "sudo apt-get update" followed by "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade".  for the release-to-release updates... someone else should answer.15:31
akikmobile3: but it could be that this setup is not made with the 3d/hw acceleration in mind. so if your connection is too slow, you should install another desktop environment15:32
motaka2TJ-: :) I have uploaded the new result15:33
mobile3akik: I have good connection, do I need to start something on server like startx ?15:33
akikmobile3: no15:33
TJ-motaka2: OK, you see its now 'rw' ? So that worked15:34
motaka2TJ-: cool, what is the next step ?15:34
jackcomthanks zykotick9 :)15:34
TJ-motaka2: all of this tells us the root file-system is not damaged, so the main issue left to diagnose would seem to be the black screen when trying to log in as a user in the GUI, is that correct?15:35
motaka2TJ-: I dont even see the login page15:35
mobile3akik: I gave all the details, then password, now it is connected and again disconneced15:36
akikmobile3: on the tab connection, select wan and on the compression method: select 2m-png15:36
TJ-motaka2: At this point we need to get that PC on the network so you can pastebin some logs. Is that PC wired to a network, or does it rely on a wireless connection?15:36
motaka2TJ-: the graphic cards differ from the old case to the new. But as I told you untill not upgrading the packages it was working fine15:36
akikmobile3: are you able to login via ssh with these same credentials?15:36
motaka2TJ-: It is wired to a network15:37
Guest75621did ubuntu has a small one? i mean no desktop.15:37
mobile3akik: no my speed is not so fast, it is 128 Kilo Byte Per Second15:37
mobile3akik: should I select 256 jpeg?15:38
akikmobile3: i didn't ask about the speed but are you able to login from your client machine via ssh with these credentials?15:38
akikmobile3: the 2m means 2 million15:38
_DBhey guys I just installed ubuntu15:38
akikmobile3: it's about number of colours15:38
MonkeyDust_DB  great15:38
_DBmy HDD recently died (windows 10 locked me out of it cant even access it on linux)15:39
TJ-motaka2: so in theory we might be able to bring up the network manually. First we need to know which interface is the wired interface, then we need to determine the correct method for making it active. Start off with "ifconfig -a" (don't photo the results, just analyse them yourself) and identify the wired network device - probably 'eth0'15:39
_DBim using a usb to run ubuntu, was wondering I have another usb thats empty, can I install programs into that?15:39
_DBor somehow use it so I have more space for software15:39
TJ-motaka2: then "cat /etc/network/interfaces" and check whether there are any entries in that file for the network device you identified. If there are not, that tells us that Network Manager is responsible for managing the devices15:40
_DBtil i buy a new HDD or fix my other one15:40

mrbrdohey guys. I have a /64 block of IPv6s and want to bind all of them to my ubuntu server. I only found instructions on how to add specific IPs but not how to add the whole range. Since these are billions of IPs, is there a way to add the whole range instead of individual IPs? Could someone point me in the right direction?15:42
MonkeyDustmrbrdo  try #ubuntu-server15:42
zykotick9_DB: note, you could (with two usbs) do a real install from a liveusb to the other usb...  that would give you a little more control15:42
Swishmrbrdo, what do you mean "bind them" ?  You can't route all those IPs without them being in the routing table15:42
motaka2TJ-: the result is auto lo and on the second line iface lo inet loopback15:43
Swisherm.  If your machine is an endpoint for them, they all have to be listed explicitly, don't they?15:43
mrbrdoSwish: I mean so I can use them to make connections15:43
mrbrdoI don't need to open incoming ports though15:43
TJ-motaka2: OK, that means Network Manager handles the network devices. Do "initctl start network-manager" - hopefully you'll see messages indicating it has started15:43
_DBoh no i have a real install of ubuntu15:43
_DBits persistent15:43
mobile3akik: no message the desktop window is just going to start then closes and session is getting disconnected15:44
Swishmrbrdo, yeah.  As far as I know, you'd have to list each of them explicitly15:44
jct500thzI'm working on all the Ask Ubuntu answers that I15:44
jct500thzI'm reading over15:44
akikmobile3: you will find the logs in /tmp/.x2go-username/C-username* on the vps15:44
zykotick9_DB: ahhh, persistent Live != full install15:44
_DBi just need more storage space, my usb are both 8gns and unity editor is 3 gbs plus 1 gb for install package15:44
_DBwhich is why i need the other usb15:44
_DBI used the starup disk creator15:44
_DBahh ok! lol15:44
MonkeyDust_DB  you didnt install ubuntu on your pc, but on a usb stick?15:45
motaka2TJ-: So many entries starting with modem manager [] could not get the system bus15:45
_DBwasnt aware persistent didnt mean full install XD15:45
TJ-mrbrdo: you'd configure a netfilters rule using ip6tables to redirect all connections to the IPv6 sub-net to a single IPv6 address on the network interface15:45
mrbrdoSwish: hm okay. so no way to route the whole range to the same if? I also saw something about an "AnyIP" feature but I don't understand it15:45
_DByeah my HDD wasnt comaptible i have no idea what windows 10 did to it15:45
akikmobile3: not sure if it's easier to install for example lxde and try opening a lxde session in the x2go client15:45
etronikHi all, I'm trying to run LongoMatch under Ubuntu 14.04 but it keeps complaining some codec is missing, just doesn't tell me which one. Anybody familiar with this and how to solve it ?15:45
_DBbut i font want to format it since i hvae important files15:45
mrbrdoTJ-: that sounds like something that could work. so when I make a connection I can specify any IP from the range and the remote endpoint will see that IP?15:46
TJ-motaka2: ahhh, maybe we need to start DBus first! we're having to pretend to be the init system ourselves here. I think maybe we'd be better off actually restarting the PC in normal multi-user mode but telling it not to start the GUI.15:46
SwishHey everyone, question about an out-of-memory kill that keeps happining on my ubuntu 14.04.3LTS desktop.  In /var/log/syslog I see the line "Unable to purge GPU memory due lock contention." right before it starts OOM-killing my vmware-vmx process.  This URL shows where that line is printed, but I am trying to figure out the cause (and if the i915 graphics driver is a red herring or related):15:46
_DBso i installed it onto my usbstick XD15:46
Swishmrbrdo, lemme google this AnyIP thing...15:46
TJ-mrbrdo: you'd have to have some connection tracking going on, effectively reverse-NAT15:46
motaka2TJ-: :)15:46
TJ-motaka2: so, hang on one moment whilst I describe what you need to do...15:46

Swishmrbrdo, that's going to require you to recompile some things.  It's not a normal way to use the TCP/IP stack15:49
trisquelmotaka2, "sudo apt-get purge" is shorter15:49

akikmobile3: btw. don't use root account always16:28
jackcomapt-get cach ?16:28
jackcomapt-get cache16:29
akikmobile3: "echo $PATH" should return something like "/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin"16:29
jasabellahi :)16:29
jackcom Invalid operation cache16:29
cyber37TJ- the -D option isn't working (need octal number to debug ? wtf ? )16:29
TJ-jackcom: what? do you mean "apt-cache <some commands>" ?16:29
jackcomyes TJ-16:29
motaka2TJ-: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1354435016:29
cyber37But i  don't find where i can download source of the REAL tftp software (not the one provided by ubuntu ..)16:30
jackcomapt-get cache program16:30
mobile3akik: any problem using root account? Okay will talk on this later... How to change to correct directory?16:30
TJ-cyber37: which package supplied /usr/bin/tftp according to "dpkg -S " ?16:30
mobile3akik: /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/b16:30
zykotick9jackcom: what are you trying to do?16:30
TJ-jackcom: why are you typing "apt-get cache" rather than "apt-cache" ?16:30
MonkeyDustcyber37  i installed tftp in a vm ... when you see the prompt, type ? to see the possible commands16:30
jackcomapt-get cache16:31
cyber37mathieu@mathieu-fixe-ubuntu:~/workspace/stm32f4_board_2$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/tftp16:31
cyber37tftp: /usr/bin/tftp16:31
zykotick9jackcom: there is no "apt-get cache" command!16:31
cyber37MonkeyDust i understand that16:31
SchrodingersScatjackcom: you want apt-cache search name.*orPHrase  ; apt-cache is its own command16:31
cyber37MonkeyDust, i want to use TFTP commands without going in the prompt16:31
cyber37Like as they said in the MAN16:31
akikmobile3: you should normally use your non-privileged account. then if you need to run commands which require root access, use sudo. if you need to change to the root account for many successive commands, you can use sudo -i16:31
TJ-cyber37: that explains it! You should have used "apt-get install tftp-hpa"16:31
cyber37MonkeyDust can you try it : "tftp -c get foobar" ? please ?16:32
mobile3akik: from next onwards I will do so... how to change to correct path ?16:32
SchrodingersScatjackcom: then you can also use apt-cache show packageName to show more details about individual packages16:32
cyber37TJ- I don't understand how you see that, but yes i have it installed16:33
akikmobile3: if you use sudo -i from your non-privileged account, you can probably see the correct path with "echo $PATH"16:33
TJ-cyber37: there are 2 packages that provide /usr/bin/tftp (client), one is 'tftp' the other, better, is 'tfpt-hpa' (hpa = H. Peter Anvin, the legendary Intel core tools developer (responsible for syslinux etc., too)16:33
cyber37But sudo apt-get install tftp too .16:33
jackcomapt-cache search python-numpy16:33
SchrodingersScatjackcom: yep, that brings up some python packages16:34
ioria!info tftpd-hpa16:34
ubottutftpd-hpa (source: tftp-hpa): HPA's tftp server. In component main, is extra. Version 5.2+20140608-3ubuntu1 (wily), package size 39 kB, installed size 141 kB (Only available for linux-any; kfreebsd-any)16:34
jackcomthanks SchrodingersScat16:34
cyber37TJ- Maybe thegood one is the HPA because it's the name of the guy in the MAN PAGE16:34
SchrodingersScatjackcom: welcome16:34
TJ-cyber37: if you have tftp-hpa also installed that suggests the update-alternatives for /usr/bin/tftp is set to the one from the 'tftp' package. Do "ls -l /usr/bin/tftp*" and you should see all the executables, and be able to directly use the 'hpa' version16:34
TJ-cyber37: correct :)16:34
TJ-cyber37: I'd bet /usr/bin/tftp is a sum-link to /etc/alternatives/16:35
motaka2TJ-: Did you noticed I sent the new link? in case not here it is:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/13544350/16:35
akikmobile3: the path is set in /etc/environment16:35
=== GSilva is now known as gsilvapt
TJ-motaka2: no, i didn't; thanks for reminding me :)16:35
motaka2TJ-: Thank you16:36
cyber37TJ- I need to reboot i come back.16:37
TJ-motaka2: hehehe is the time on that system jumped forward to 2016? check with "date" to be sure - those last 4 files in /var/log/ have unusual timestamps16:37
motaka2TJ-: I really dont know what happened16:38
TJ-motaka2: "date" and check it says 201516:38
TJ-motaka2: it won't hurt too much but it affects how we read the log files, and which ones we pick16:38
motaka2TJ-: It is 201516:38
mobile3akik: I got this using account other than root -- /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/16:39
TJ-motaka2: OK, at some point the time jumped forward a day to 29th November then16:39
TJ-motaka2: your local time now is around 19:40 or so?16:40
akikmobile3: what's in /etc/environment ?16:40
motaka2TJ-: it is 20:10, I am in Iran16:40
TJ-motaka2: ok, you have a 1/2 hour in your timezone difference. Thanks, that helps me figure out what I'm seeing16:41
mobile3akik: cd /etc/environment or vi /etc/environment ?16:41
akikmobile3: i think you have changed something somewhere as you have the root directory / in your path16:41
motaka2TJ-: Yeah that's right +3:3016:41
akikmobile3: /etc/environment is a text file, one line. you can cat /etc/environment16:41
TJ-motaka2: so according to what I see, the last time you tried to start the GUI was around 19:23 ?16:42
motaka2TJ-: :) I really dont know, maybe16:42
mobile3akik: PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/game16:42
TJ-motaka2: OK, well let's assume that, because it points to the file I need to see. "pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log"16:42
akikmobile3: that line is not complete16:43
mobile3akik: what to do ?16:43
akikmobile3: edit it so that it ends with :/usr/local/games"16:44
LobsterAttackDespite having all the listed dependencies installed I can't seem to get Darf Fortress Lazy Newb Pack running... Anyone know about it?16:44
jasabelladoes mini install the lts version or whatever's latest? i.e. 15.10?16:44
motaka2TJ-: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13544533/16:44
TJ-motaka2: that looks good. now "pastebinit /etc/X11/xorg.conf" please16:44
mobile3akik: do I have to add this at the end of line :/usr/local/games ?16:45
Delta706Can anyone suggest a free VM provider? I have tried virtualbox but it requires a setting for 64-bit which I cannot enable16:45
ikoniaDelta706: what do you mean requires a 64bit setting ?16:45
akikmobile3: so that the line ends with a "16:45
ioriajasabella, yes, if downloaded the wily iso https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD16:45
Delta706vt-x a bios setting16:45
ikoniaDelta706: thats nothing to do with virtual box16:45
ikoniaDelta706: thats the hypervisor in general wanting to use virtualization options on your chip16:46
mobile3akik: didn't understand16:46
akikmobile3: you're missing a " at the end of the line16:46
Delta706it is a requirement for vbox16:46
motaka2TJ-:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/1354456316:46
ioriajasabella, but 15.10 it's not lts16:47
mobile3akik: sorry I missed copying it , but it is actually there PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games"16:47
ikoniaDelta706: you're going to be running in software mode without it,16:47
TJ-motaka2: right, so far so good! now "pastebinit $HOME/.xsession-errors"16:47
ikoniawhich will be very slow16:47
akikmobile3: when you login to your vps with ssh with your non-privileged account, run "echo $PATH", then "sudo -i", then run a "echo $PATH" again. something has messed your path up16:48
Delta706as long as it is not too slow, this is fine with me16:48
motaka2TJ-:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/13544605/16:48
mascot66991hey Guys I migrated from 15..04 to 15.10 and I used to be allowed to increase volume above 100 from top menubar control now I can reach till 100 after which i need to right click and go to setting and increase further.. is this known.. can i change somethin to be able to chane above 100 directly without opening settings each time ?16:48
ikoniaDelta706: it will be too slow16:49
ikoniaDelta706: thats why the virtual machine hypervisors depend on it16:49
zykotick9ikonia: i believe Delta706 is trying to install a 64bit guest VM, and i do think VBox requires vt-x to do that... 32bit should be fine.16:49
motaka2I am hungry16:49
Delta706How many times slower would it be? 10 times, 100?16:49
ikoniazykotick9: the docs suggest it's 64bit only, but reading the general hypervisor documentation, he's going to struggle without it full stop16:49
jasabellaooohh ok, there's different one16:49
TJ-motaka2: finally we have some clues, at the end of that last log file16:49
motaka2TJ-: greate16:50
ikoniacertainly try it with a 32bit VM, see how it goes16:50
Delta706zykotick9: 32-bit is limited to 4 gigs16:50
ikoniaDelta706: this is silly16:50
ikoniayou're VM needs more than 4GB of ram - so it obviously has some performance requirements16:50
zykotick9Delta706: true, but are you really giving your VM more then 4GB?16:50
ikoniaso then not using hwardware hypervisor support on the chip, does matter16:51
ikoniaDelta706: what are you trying to run on this VM16:52
ikonialets get some context16:52
TJ-motaka2: is there a mix of Gnome and KDE on that PC?16:52
mobile3akik: I got this when run sudo -i  softfile is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported16:52
mascot66991hey Guys I migrated from 15..04 to 15.10 and I used to be allowed to increase volume above 100 from top menubar control now I can reach till 100 after which i need to right click and go to setting and increase further.. is this known.. can i change somethin to be able to chane above 100 directly without opening settings each time ?.16:54
KiborgHello. I have Ubuntu 15.10 64 bit with Geforce GTX 970. I am using Nvidia propertary drivers form additional drivers. Until recently it has wokred like charm, but after the latest update I am unable to even log in, I get login loop.16:54
akikmobile3: add your non-privileged account to the sudo group, then try again16:54
jasabellaselect and install software fails for some reason hmmm16:55
MonkeyDustjasabella  what's the output of   cat /etc/issue16:55
akikmobile3: this channel expects you to run ubuntu as it's designed16:56
JuanDaughertyi wonder why they removed the apache imagemap module?16:56
TJ-motaka2: the log-file has a suggestion to run "sudo sh -c 'pango-querymodules > /etc/pango/pango.modules' "  to fix a configuration error16:57
mystupidnickcan anyone tell me what kernel driver is required for nic Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411?16:57
motaka2TJ-: :D I dont think so, but because it was slow , I installed something like unity 2d if I rember well16:57
jasabellanothing there, i went into /var/log/syslog16:57
jasabellapkgsel failed with code 10016:57
ikoniajasabella: please show us the output of "cat /etc/issue" in a patebin16:57
JuanDaughertymystupidnick, you can see it in the kernel config menus16:58
motaka2TJ-: Should I run that ?16:58
ikoniaas motaka2 asked16:58
TJ-motaka2: Yes16:58
ikoniaor MonkeyDust even16:58
mystupidnickJuanDaugherty: i cant run that16:58
jasabellano such file, i'm installing into vmware :)16:58
ikoniajasabella: that means nothing16:58
ikoniajasabella: a vmware install would have the same as a physical install16:58
jasabellait's a fresh install, i've dropped down to shell in the install program16:59
mobile3akik: I got this with non-root   /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games16:59
ikoniajasabella: please show the output of the command "cat /etc/issue"16:59

mobile3akik : I got this with root   /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin16:59
akikmobile3: ok, now apt-get should work16:59
TJ-motaka2: then you can try starting the GUI and logging in. If that fails, we'll again look at the new log files to look for more certain failure indications. To start the GUI do "sudo service lightdm start"16:59
jasabellano such flie or directory16:59
jophish__How can I reinstall ubuntu without it trying to "reinstall previously installed applicationa"17:00
ikoniajasabella: re-install, your ubuntu install is missing basic files17:00
ioriajasabella, how did you do the iso ?17:00
mobile3akik : which account should I use ? root or non-root ?17:00
akiknon-root with sudo and root without sudo17:00
jasabellai just used the mini.iso file straight off ubuntu's servers17:01
jasabellamd5sum checks out17:01
jophish__I have something very wrong with my ubuntu installation, and the reinstaller just puts me right back into that state I think17:01
ikoniawhy are you using the mini iso and not a standard install ?17:01
jasabella'expert mode' in standard install does autonetwork configuration which i dont want17:02
ikoniajasabella: what configuration does it not do ?17:02
motaka2TJ-: It gives two errors, do you need them ?17:02
jasabellai want to set a static ip address17:02
ikoniajasabella: you can do that in the standard install17:02
ikoniayou do not need the mini iso for that17:02
ioriajasabella, and what's the problem ?17:02
TJ-motaka2: is "it" the "pango-querymodules" command?17:03
ikoniajasabella: please do a standard install17:03
jasabellai've instatlled an (older) version of ubuntu before and things are weird17:03
motaka2TJ-: the secon one yes , says not found17:03
ikonianot interested in an older version17:03
ikoniajasabella: please install a standard current ubuntu install17:03
ioriajasabella, which one ?17:03
mobile3akik: I got, Thank Thank Very Much!!17:03
TJ-motaka2: hmm, ok, lets leave that for now then. Move on to starting the GUI17:03
jasabella12.04 lts, expert mode, i know what i'm doing (of sorts)17:04
TJ-motaka2: do "sudo service lightdm start"17:04
jasabellai just want a minimal server17:04
akikmobile3: i hope you haven't enabled root logins through ssh...17:04
ioriajasabella, so ubuntu-server17:04
ikoniajasabella: so install the standard server install17:04
mobile3akik: I am using non-root account now17:04
ioriajasabella, you can select software in there too17:04
jasabellai dont want any software apart from the base system17:05
ioriajasabella, anyway, the mini should work....17:05
ikoniajasabella: use a standard ubuntu install17:05
ikoniajasabella: it's clear you're not really sure what you're doing17:05
jasabellai just want to hit no so hopefully it cleans things up17:05
akikmobile3: let's change that one setting in the x2go client17:05
ikoniaa standard ubuntu server install is good enough for %90 of the community17:05
jasabellait's downloaded things17:05
ikoniait should meet your needs just fine17:05
motaka2TJ-: just a black page17:06
jasabellacan ubuntu server (minimum) run on 256mb of ram?17:06
TJ-motaka2: OK ... now press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get back to the text console and we'll investigate the logs17:06
ikoniajasabella: yes17:06
mobile3akik: yes tell me17:06
ikoniajasabella: and to be honest - if it can't, the mini wouldn't either17:06
ioriajasabella, i installed on a hp nc6000 ....17:07
akikmobile3: go to options/settings/x.org server settings, click on use custom x-server, then click the button on the executable: line at the right17:07
motaka2TJ-: it seems  it doesnt go anywhere17:07
jasabellai'm gonna skip that and go straight to putting on a bootloader17:07
ikoniajasabella: please stop ignoring advice17:07
ikoniajasabella: please do a STANDARD ubuntu server install17:07
TJ-motaka2: did the original system that hard disk came from have 2 monitors?17:07
akikmobile3: then browse to "C:/Program Files (x86)/x2goclient/VcXsrv/vcxsrv.exe"17:07
motaka2TJ-: no17:07
jasabellawhat's the difference between them?17:08
ikoniajasabella: one will work and be stable, the other will be a mess you create17:08
jasabellai'll be responsible for my own mess then :D or go back to debian heh17:09
ikoniajasabella: clearly not as your in this channel with total lack of understanding and asking for help17:09
akikmobile3: then add -wgl to the command line options on the next line17:09
TJ-motaka2: OK, you've got a Samsung Syncmaster connected to the VGA output, is that correct?17:09
jasabellai dont know how your install program works, for some reason it jumps around17:09
akikmobile3: you need to close the x2go client and start it again for this setting to come active17:10
ikoniajasabella: use the STANDARD ubuntu server install17:10
ikoniajasabella: and people can guide you if there is anything unclear17:10
jasabellai do, i select expert mode and it auto configures everything17:10
ikoniajasabella: no it doesn't17:10
motaka2TJ-: Sumsung syncmaster 920N , with a cable like other monitors connecting to graphic card17:10
jasabellaincl. netowrk17:10
MonkeyDustjasabella  you could have avoided all this, if you installed standard ubuntu server17:10
ikonialost interest now17:11
jasabellai wish i could screencast something17:11
jasabellaand show you want happensw hen i start expert install17:11
TJ-motaka2: I'm making sure there's no config inherited from the last PC the hard disk was in, to cause this. So far I've seen no evidence of that which is good17:11
mobile3akik: done, what is the benefit of doing this ?17:12
akikmobile3: this was needed if you run the x2go client from a linux client and a windows client and want to connect to the same disconnected session17:12
=== xubuntu is now known as Guest22976
akikmobile3: it could also help if the unity session did not start before17:13
akikmobile3: can you try starting up the unity session again?17:13
motaka2TJ-: As I told you this system with the new hard was working fine till It started to do some updates and then asked me to restart and then it ended to that bloody black page17:13
mobile3akik: Ya sure!17:14
TJ-motaka2: I did notice mention in the Xorg.0.log that the current output resolution is 1280x1024, but another suggestion that it was expecting 1280x720 - does that sound like the current monitor (128x1024) and the monitor of the previous PC (1280x720) ?17:14
FreakErnis it possible to create a bridge in interfaces using for example eth0 and the host can still use eth0 for network and internet? when i create br0 the server has no network and internet. maybe someone can help me with this?17:14
FastZI have been studying for the Linux+ exam and plan to take it by the end of the year. Does anyone here know of a good practice exam online that I can take before actually sitting for the exam?17:14
motaka2TJ-: Both systems were using the same monitor, I disconnect one to connect it to other, I just have one monitor17:15
TJ-motaka2: Strange. OK, anyhow. right now it is still showing a black screen? Is the monitor still actively receiving a signal (should be showing a green LED) or has it gone into standby mode (often the LED will flash, or show orange) ?17:16
MonkeyDustFastZ  #ubuntu-offtopic17:16
TJ-motaka2: I think what we need to do now is to configure that PC to have openssh-server installed and running, so you can connect to it over the network from the PC you're using for IRC. That way it doesn't matter if the screen goes black, we can actually look at the logs and figure out what state it is in17:17
TJ-motaka2: is your IRC PC also using Linux?17:17
jasabellaso i select my keyboard in the server iso file and it configures my entire network for me17:18
jasabelladoesnt ask me for a domain name, just a hostname17:18
mobile3akik: I tried unity, it get connected, the desktop window opened and closed as like before and it get disconnected17:18
jasabellaasks me for a user name now17:18
akikmobile3: look into the /tmp/.x2go-username/C-* session file17:19
mobile3akik: where? from terminal?17:20
motaka2TJ-: Sorry, It is not a pc, it is laptop running windows vista17:20
akikmobile3: yes. there's also a .xsession-x2go-errors file in your $HOME17:21
MonkeyDustmotaka2  so it's a laptop pc17:21
akikmobile3: if you can pastebin those, we might be able to find the reason why it doesn't work17:21
TJ-motaka2: OK, you'd need to install and use the Windows SSH client Putty17:21
BluesKajas opposed to a desktop pc I reckon :-)17:22
motaka2TJ-: I think I have putty, lemme check17:22
akikmobile3: my guess is that unity expects those 3d acceleration properties that are not there in x2go17:22
TJ-motaka2: can you remember if the Ubuntu PC already has openssh-server installed? If it does, it should be listening for connections right now and we can avoid having to put it through a reboot17:22
mobile3akik: well in the x2go clients, some logs are showing can I paste that ?17:22
akikmobile3: sure, put them into pastebin17:22
=== Piper-Off is now known as Monthrect
motaka2TJ-: I dont remeber installing such a thing on it17:23
motaka2TJ-: Cant I do something with LIVE DVD ?17:23
TJ-motaka2: OK, to save us messing about then, reboot the Ubuntu PC, goto the GRUB boot menu as before, add the " text" again and boot it to the text console. Then we can find out the PC's IP address (which you'll need to connect to it from Putty) and install the openssh-server package17:24
motaka2TJ-: ok17:24
akikmobile3: i think gnome shell with some kind of fallback still exists when you don't have 3d acceleration17:25
motaka2TJ-: I dont have putty on windows let me installl it17:25
zykotick9akik: ahhh, i'm not sure fallback exists in gnome anymore...17:26
akikzykotick9: so no way to run either gnome or unity without 3d acceleration anymore?17:26
motaka2TJ-: :D I wonder why life  is so difficult17:27
zykotick9akik: i'm not sure.  so don't take my word for it!17:27
TJ-motaka2: it's a learning experience :)17:27
TJ-motaka2: I think the cause is something very simple, but without remote access, diagnosing these things using IRC and pastebins takes about 100x longer than it would17:27
motaka2TJ-: :) ok17:28
akikmobile3: kde still works with x2go. you can install it with "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop"17:29
motaka2TJ-: I have putty from 2012 can I install that ?17:29
motaka2TJ-: or I need a fresh version ?17:29
TJ-motaka2: yes, SSH is SSH it doesn't change that much... as long as Windows doesn't complain :)17:29
motaka2TJ-: ok it is running, how can I find the IP ?17:30
linociscohi all,17:31
linociscoI need to access one forum which has banned our country IP, which is the most secure and fastest way to access it? some suggested VPN, I dont know which is better for faster access17:32
TJ-motaka2: the Ubuntu PC you mean? you've logged in to the text console?17:32
mobile3akik: http://pastebin.com/BHZFVRaM17:33
TJ-motaka2: "ifconfig eth1" will tell you the IP address (I seem to recall the network was on eth1)17:33
motaka2TJ-: Yes I have logged17:33
WaynesKaffeHello folks! my cpu-indicator (unity indicator) has stop scaling the cpu. It's on powersave mode all time since 2 days ago.17:33
TJ-motaka2: make a note of the Ubuntu IP address ready for Putty,  and then do "sudo apt-get install openssh-server"17:34
heb12did anyone know ,how to access the su password17:34
motaka2TJ-: inet addr: ? is that it ?17:34
akikmobile3: that doesn't tell me anything. you might change the settings in the client connection tab from adsl to wan and 2m-png as the colour mode17:34
akikmobile3: the error from unity might be in $HOME/.xsession-x2go-errors17:34
TJ-motaka2: Yes. On Putty you can be creating a connection with that as the hostname/IP address, and put your Ubuntu PC username as the connection username. I've not use Putty in 10 years so you'll have to figure out the connection settings yourself :)17:35
TJ-motaka2: after 'openssh-server' is installed it will auto-start. Then you can try connecting from Putty, and make sure that is working nicely17:36

linuzoAnyone here have an idea how to change the audio driver in ubuntu 15.04 ??  I want to use another driver because currently my subwoofer doesn't work with this one but on  Linux Mint 17.2 it uses the Lynx Point HD Audio driver and works. So I'm assuming if I update the driver it should work on my current machine Lenovo Y50 - 201517:40

TJ-motaka2: the important thing here is to get a remote connection the Ubuntu PC so when the screen goes black we can actively investigate, rather than try to reconstruct events from log files that may not capture the issue - especially if as far as the system is concerned it is running fine and its not aware you can't see its output18:05

jasabellaRafibd01717... which fim18:23

jasabellaif it is a link, readlink -f $(which vim)18:25

Rafibd01717jasabella you recommend me to remove the dir/file manually?18:29
ikoniaRafibd01717: why do you want to remove vim /18:29
jasabellait's probably a link provided by the alternatives system18:29
Rafibd01717ikonia: I explained it buddy18:29
jasabellait's nto the actual program18:30
ikoniaRafibd01717: I've not seen any explination18:30
zykotick9Rafibd01717: be careful!  you're probably messing with the "alternatives" system!  vi is a posix requirement, so some form of vi(m) _is_ required on your system.  "sudo apt-get purge vim" is the most complete uninstall of vim you can do.  vim-tiny is still going to be installed though.18:30
jasabellait's debian/ubuntu's way of makig it easier to configure your system to have multiple packages do the same thing18:30
jasabella(in this case, provide a text editor)18:30
zykotick9Rafibd01717: again, it's the setting in your home directory you should be worried about.18:30

jasabellaRafibd01717... do you know what a symbolic link is?18:31
jasabellait's like a shortcut on windows or an alias on the mac18:31
Rafibd01717jasebella: no18:31
jasabellait isnt the actual program18:31
zykotick9Rafibd01717: ubuntu-desktop metapacke is going to keep vim-tiny (which is vi really) installed on your system!18:31
jasabellait just sits there to "assist" programs which want to start vim when vim isnt installed18:31

MrSpockmystupidnick: you might want to try the out of tree 8168 instead, depending on just what card you have18:38
MrSpockI doubt that your kernel is missing that module though18:38
mystupidnickit is because lsmod doesn't list it18:39

motaka2TJ-: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13547464/19:47
TJ-motaka2: 'sudo' credentials are usually cached for about 10 minutes incase you want to use it again, without needing to re-enter the password constantly19:47

TJ-motaka2: line 32 (and others) "[+2804.25s] DEBUG: Failed to start greeter" looks to be the problem,19:49
motaka2TJ-: And?19:50

motaka2lightdm start/running, process 366519:53
TJ-motaka2: any sign of the display?19:53
motaka2TJ-: no19:53
TJ-motaka2: that is weird. "sudo service lightdm stop" then "pastebinit <( ps -efly )"19:54
ioriamadmanwithabox, maybe the culprit if the mac filter, but can't help you on that, because i have never used it19:54
Bashing-omthe_count: Lots of factors in the 'speed' . Where are you copying from and to and what means ? USB speeds are much slower USB2 as opposed to USB3 .. or maybe the bottleneck is the network if you are backing up off-premise .19:54
motaka2TJ-: ttp://paste.ubuntu.com/13547571/19:54
TJ-motaka2: I'm going to have to hadn you over to someone else now; I have to leave. The place to focus is on the /var/log/lightdm/ log-files, especially x-0.log and x-0-greeter.log19:55
madmanwithaboxioria, hmm, okay. thanks for the help anyway :)19:55
motaka2TJ-: dont go19:55
ioriamadmanwithabox, good luck19:55
TJ-motaka2: there is no X server running which is good. Now do "sudo service lightdm start" and it should show the GU, if it doesn't, those logs *should* reveal a clue19:55

motaka2 TJ-:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/1354757119:56

madmanwithaboxlotuspsychje Okay, I'll join that right now and ask19:57
lotuspsychjemotaka2: wich ubuntu version is this?19:57
TJ-motaka2: make sure another helper knows you're working over a remote SSH session, else they may make some incorrect assumptions19:57
madmanwithaboxlotuspsychje Thanks everyone :)19:57
motaka2lotuspsychje: it is 12.0419:57
TJ-motaka2: right, so something is wrong with the drivers. I wonder if /var/log/kern.log might have some clue19:57
lotuspsychjemotaka2: fully updated system?19:58
motaka2TJ-: so what do you suggest ?19:58
motaka2lotuspsychje: I updated it and restarted and I couldnt see the greeting page anymore19:58
motaka2lotuspsychje: no I have ssh access to it using putty on windows19:59
lotuspsychjemotaka2: what graphics card does the system have19:59
motaka2lotuspsychje: I dont know, how can I check ?19:59
TJ-lotuspsychje: the hard drive in this PC came from another PC, it did boot OK until a recent set of package upgrades. Now, after the initial GUI greeter display, after trying log-in the monitor goes black and remains that way, the /var/log/lightdm/ lightdm.log suggests the greeter fails after initially being shown. The user is NOT logged in, no user session is active, the X server remains running but lightdm20:00
TJ-itself has failed. Stopping the X server and restarting lightdm doesn't show the greeter GUI from then onwards20:00
zykotick9motaka2: "lspci | grep -i vga" might be more manageable.20:00

motaka2lotuspsychje: how?20:25
lotuspsychjeKevin-_-: did you check additional drivers section?20:25
ioriamotaka2, sudo lightdm restart ?20:26
ioriamotaka2, sudo service lightdm restart ?20:26
lotuspsychjeioria: TJ already tested that, back to black screen20:26
LogicalDashI got a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series on the understanding it was officially supported by Ubuntu. I installed it all right, but when I log in the mouse goes invisible. I can still click things, kind of, but I can't tell where I'm about to click.20:26
iorialotuspsychje, ok20:26
Kevin-_-lotuspsychje: I did a month ago, looking to find that again.20:27
lotuspsychjeLogicalDash: might be an acpi issue, wich ubuntu version?20:27
LogicalDashlotuspsychje: 15.1020:27
lotuspsychjeLogicalDash: try 14.04.3 lts20:27
ioriamotaka2, cat /etc/issue20:27
motaka2ioria: but I restarted the lightweightdm you mean do that from putty ?20:28
LogicalDashok, now I can *see* the mouse but not *move* it20:28
ioriamotaka2, putty ? are you ssh 'ing ?20:28
lotuspsychjeLogicalDash: usb keyboard and mouse support enabled in bios?20:28
LogicalDashlotuspsychje: checking20:29
motaka2ioria: not with commands you gave me20:29
LogicalDashlotuspsychje: should they be?20:29
motaka2ioria: but I have ssh access too20:29
ioriamotaka2, can't you access directly your box ?20:29
lotuspsychjeLogicalDash: in bios you can mostly choose bios/Os20:29
LogicalDashlotuspsychje: you didn't answer my question20:29
motaka2ioria: Yes in text mode yes20:30
motaka2what is box?20:30
motaka2ioria: donkarlo@mohammad-desktop:~$ cat /etc/issue20:30
motaka2Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS \n \l20:30
motaka2the above is done in ssh20:30
ioriamotaka2, try again sudo service lightdm restart20:31
lotuspsychjeLogicalDash: try bios20:31
motaka2ioria: from putty ?20:31
ioriamotaka2, no, directly20:31
motaka2ioria: then I have to restart and then text mode wait20:32
ioriamotaka2, ok20:32
motaka2ioria: TJ- told me not to purge nvidia20:33
ioriamotaka2, why ?20:33
motaka2ioria: Are you sure it was a right thing to do ?20:33
askmemy gosh i feel like an idiot listening to this. im 40 and have 2 computer degrees and havent messed with linux seriously since they got a gui20:33
motaka2ioria: he said things might got worse20:33
askmedamn it... is there hope?20:33
Kevin-_-lotuspsychje: so I'm not seeing the additional drivers for this laptop.  I'm looking on here: http://us.msi.com/product/notebook/support/GS60-Ghost-Pro-4K-6th-Gen-GTX-970M.html#down-help-desk20:34
ioriamotaka2, i did a lot of tiems on my pc : -)20:34
motaka2ioria: lightdm restarted20:35
motaka2again the same issue20:35
ioriamotaka2, again sudo lshw -c video20:35
motaka2ioria: from putty ?20:36
TJ-ioria: motaka2 I said that at the start before we knew what might be wrong, didn't want to do random things20:36
lotuspsychjeKevin-_-: wich ubuntu version is this?20:36

ubottucannon2: Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. Please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org20:36
TJ-ioria: the Ubuntu PC goes to a black screen after greeter fails20:36
motaka2ioria: What should I use?20:36
ioriaTJ- ah, ok20:37
lotuspsychjeTJ-: did you try previous kernel with him?20:37
Kevin-_-lotuspsychje: I was thinking 15.1020:37
TJ-ioria: the SSH session allows us to see what is going on when the GPU output has failed. 'black-screen' is permanent after greeter fails20:37
lotuspsychjeKevin-_-: normally 970 gtx should give you additional drivers20:37
=== GSilva is now known as gsilvapt
TJ-lotuspsychje: No, it took a long time to get the remote SSH configured. Earlier we were checking the file-system was okay via recovery with no network.20:38
lotuspsychjeKevin-_-: did you install with internet enabled?20:38
motaka2TJ-: after purging the nvidia sometimes it blinks with some text in it20:38
ioriamotaka2, ok, you did an upgrade to 12.04 ?20:38
motaka2ioria: I tried20:38
ioriamotaka2, and failed ?20:38
motaka2ioria: I think so20:39
ioriamotaka2, from what version ?20:39
motaka2ioria: I have a live 14.04 DVD, would that help ?20:39
ioriamotaka2, absolutly20:39
motaka2ioria: from 12.04 to 14.0420:39
TJ-ioria: the hard disk came from a different PC with slightly different hardware, but I couldn't find any log signs of difficulties due to that. The original PC had nvidia fake-raid, and although this PC doesn't the system sees and uses the fake-RAID metadata to boot from correctly.20:39
TJ-OK, I have to leave now. Good luck.20:40
Kevin-_-lotuspsychje: I haven't installed yet, was just curious if there are any potential problems that I'll run into.  i.e. Killer lan problems.20:40
ioriaTJ- sounds very complicated then ....20:40
Kevin-_-don't want to get all the way through and then roll back to windows20:40
lotuspsychjeKevin-_-: ubuntu runs on most machines mate, some might need bit solving20:41
ioriamotaka2, again sudo lshw -c video , please20:41
lotuspsychjeKevin-_-: if you run into issues, come back to us ok20:41
ruidanyone know how to prevent ubuntu server from sleeping....20:42

lotuspsychjeafter update greeter fails20:48
iorialotuspsychje, ok20:48
motaka2ioria: I tried but it failed. but still I could see and use my compuer. then to use xmind seven it suggested me to upgrade some packages and then after restart it ended to a black screen20:49
k1lruid: so cli only?20:49
motaka2k1l: what do you suggest ?20:49
ruidk1l, yes20:50

wizzkiddhi i recently performed a reinstallation of ubuntu 15.10 over the top of my current 15.10 install which I was having problems with.  I'm just reinstalling some of the programs I had previously, however I think my previous OS had a newer kernel, uname -r shows me "4.2.0-040200-generic" but I think when I compile anything, it is using the currently installed kernel which is "4.2.0-18-generic".  Can anyone assist me out of this sticky20:51
ioriamotaka2, ok, did you use the GUI or do.-release-upgrade ?20:51
motaka2ioria: I tried do release upgrade in those days, but not today20:52

Bashing-omwizzkidd: Have you updated the system since the new (re-)install ? ' sudo apt update ; sudo apt full-upgrade ' .21:00
VFDPrimi have a HP printer that takes comands prints a test page perfect but when i tell it to print a word doc it spits out a blank page ... any ideas21:01
zetherooI am back on the trail of troubleshooting why my Wifi speeds are so low - about 1 - 2 MB/s21:01
kornyon1Anyone available to help me trouble shoot?  I'm getting an error while booting, ubuntu is trying to mount the extended partition on 2 drives that contain a swap partition, I've never had this before21:01
wizzkiddBashing-om: just a dist-upgrade21:01
lotuspsychjeVFDPrim: did you install hplip tools?21:01
lotuspsychjezetheroo: wifi chipset and ubuntu version?21:01
zetherooI followed this (http://bernaerts.dyndns.org/linux/74-ubuntu/322-ubuntu-trusty-intel-centrino-6235-slow-freeze) and my wifi speed went from 1MB/s to 2MB/s21:01
wizzkiddBashing-om: just tried apt full-upgrade and i have 0 to upgrade, 0 to install, 0 to remove21:02
VFDPrimi did before and it actually was worse then when i dont have it (have two of same printers on two ubuntu comps one had hplip and does not the one that does not works perfect21:02
motaka2ioria: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13548633/21:02
zetheroolotuspsychje: Centrino 6205 - Ubuntu 14.0421:02
ioriamotaka2, ok, then21:02
lotuspsychjezetheroo: updated to latest 14.04.3?21:03
zetheroolotuspsychje: sorry, 15.0421:03
ioriamotaka2,  sudo apt-get install linux-generic21:03
zetheroofully updated21:03
lotuspsychjezetheroo: try lts for more stable mate21:03
lotuspsychjezetheroo: try a 14.04.3 liveusb, and test the wifi speeds there21:04
motaka2ioria: that takes long time21:04
ioriamotaka2,  i'm sorry about that ...21:04
kornyon1Any takers?21:04
lotuspsychjeVFDPrim: try the hplip tools anyway and try a testpage from the control center21:04
motaka2ioria: ok running21:04
zetheroolotuspsychje:  I upgraded thinking it would solve the issue :)21:04
lotuspsychjekornyon1: how did you create partitions?21:05
ioriamotaka2, what i see is a failed trusty installation, with still the old kernel of pangoline21:05
VFDPrimi did the test page from the controle center withought hplip and worked PERFECT21:05
Bashing-omwizzkidd: K; well ! What is installed for kernels ' dpkg -l | grep linux- ' ? in a pastebin .21:05
kornyon1I didn't that the thing21:05
VFDPrimI did everything i could with hplip and it just kept messing up and would not print at all when told to21:05
kornyon1This *was* a running box, I just added a hard drive, had not done anything to it21:06
ioriamotaka2, so, if you do a release-upgrade to trusty you should have at least a 3.16.0-xx-generic21:06
motaka2ioria: i dont think that would fix the issue, but I let that continue21:06
lotuspsychjeVFDPrim: any documents blocked in your printer list?21:06
VFDPrimnope it was cleared21:06
kornyon1Even the swap is loaded, whats erroring is its like its trying ot mount /dev/sda221:06
ioriamotaka2, the upgrade failed to update the kernel, that's for sure ....21:06
zetheroowhats the relevance of the number 8 in "11n_disable=8"?21:06
kornyon1but the swap on sda5 is mount and functioning21:07
motaka2ioria: ok it is 14 percent so I go out for dinner21:07
ioriamotaka2, me tto, sorry :þ21:07
ioriamotaka2, good luck, mate21:07
Bashing-omkornyon1: Show the channel what dstab is telling the system to mount ' cat /etc/fstab ' into a pastebin . Let's see what tale is told .21:07
VFDPrimwith hplip it just kept holding them and would not release them EVER so i removed it from the comp and deleated the printer reloaded the printer it found proper hard ware, did a test page worked perfect then tried to print a sentince from libra office and it acted like it was gunna print then tossed out an empty page oddest thing ever with this printer21:08

kornyon1I'm sure there are some suboptimal settings, but I've never had this error before21:14
kornyon1I should clarifiy, the machine DOES boot, just the gui is not booting due to an error21:15
wizzkiddBashing-om: I believe you are correct, however when I type uname -r it shows up as: 4.2.0-040200-generic (which is different from the dpkg - l output)21:15
Bashing-omkornyon1: Let us compare UUIDs ' sudo blkid ; mount ' to what is in the fstab file.. see what is and what is to be mounted .21:17
Bashing-omwizzkidd: Ouch .. Now that is beyond my skill level to know what is being parsed to get that " 4.2.0-040200-generic " output .21:18
kornyon1Bashing-om:  the uuids are correct hold on http://paste.ubuntu.com/13548865/21:18
kornyon1I didn't touch the fstab file when this error happened, what I am wondering is if this is a silent error that I didn't see before, I also just install a nvidia card, let me poke around a bit21:19
TJ-Bashing-om: wizzkidd that looks like a kernel PPA mainline build with the 040200 in the version21:19
TJ-Bashing-om: wizzkidd http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.2-wily/21:19
VFDPrimhmm cant find where the dpi settings for the printer are21:20

lotuspsychjemotaka2: install 14.04.3 on your system and make it easy for yourself21:25
TJ-wizzkidd: what is the problem exactly; I've read back but its not clear to me.21:25

VFDPrimlotuspsychje: yup the same version of ubuntu21:25
lotuspsychjeTJ-: he had 15.10 and have issues, then installed another 15.10 over his previous21:26
TJ-motaka2: what is happening now? before I went for dinner I noticed ioria discovered the system was in a partial upgrade state from 12.04 to 14.0421:26
lotuspsychjeVFDPrim: smells like one printer connected and the other not?21:26
VFDPrimif it was not connected then i would not get a test print21:26
motaka2I ran the last command he told me but still the same21:27
motaka2lotuspsychje: If I upgrade would I lose my data?21:27
TJ-motaka2: If I'd have know that I'd have suggested completing the upgrade, since it will have caused the system to have a mix of incompatible packages which likely would lead to the strange symptoms on that system.21:27
TJ-motaka2: what was the last command you executed?21:27
TJ-wizzkidd: Do you want to continue with the kernel PPA kernel, or just use the standard archive version?21:28
lotuspsychjemotaka2: on upgrades you can save your /home21:29
motaka2TJ-: sudo apt-get install linux-generic21:29
TJ-motaka2: OK, and if I read the previous messages correctly the system's /etc/apt/sources.list is pointing to the trusty (14.04) archives, not precise (12.04)21:29
wizzkiddTJ-: I had the "4.2.0-040200-generic" kernel previously installed. I performed an over-the-top reinstallation of Ubuntu 15.10 and it seems to have installed/overwritten the existing with the "4.2.0-18" kernel.  Some of my previous programs were compiled against "4.2.0-040200-generic".  I've tried to recompile the program, but it is now compiling against "4.2.0-18" and fails to work.21:30
Grimm_please how can the home folder be saved during an upgrade?21:30
TJ-wizzkidd: compiled against the kernel? you mean out-of-tree kernel modules?21:30
ruidk1l, turns out this is the solution: http://askubuntu.com/questions/141866/keep-ubuntu-server-running-on-a-laptop-with-the-lid-closed21:30
k1lruid: ah, you didnt say you were closing the lid21:31
=== skasturi is now known as okulkarni
motaka2TJ-: What do you suggest ?21:31
wizzkiddTJ-: excuse my terminology, im trying to make sense of what I'm saying myself.  I'm not sure how to correctly articulate what I am saying.21:31
ruidk1l, what was interesting is that the suspend or hibernate (not sure which it was doing) would happen a while after I close the lid21:31
TJ-wizzkidd: the reason the system is booting with that PPA kernel is simply its alphabetical version naming causes update-grub to sort it first. You can remove that kernel's files from /boot/ and redo the GRUB config and reboot and you'll be on the regular 15.10 kernel21:31
lotuspsychjeGrimm_: setup asks you to spare the /home21:32
TJ-wizzkidd: I get what you're saying, and your terminology is fine, I'm just trying to understand precisely what it is you're building21:32
Grimm_would I need a flash drive to copy the docs in the /home dir?21:33
wizzkiddTJ-: which is the newer kernel "4.2.0-18" or "4.2.0-040200-generic" ?21:33
Bashing-omkornyon1: So far " 6207faf9-dc89-4e5c-9d1a-86b05befa6d4 ' in fstab // not mounted .21:33
DarwinSurvivorGrimm_: No, if you select the option during the install to save /home, it the installer simply doesn't remove it (leaving the files right where they are)21:33
TJ-wizzkidd: the one in the archives21:34
wizzkiddTJ-: erm, the archives being?21:34
DarwinSurvivorGrimm_: think of "save" as "preserve" not "back-up", though a back-up is never a bad idea21:34
TJ-wizzkidd: "ls -latr /boot/*040200*" should show you the vmlinuz, initrd.img, config and other related files for that version21:34
lotuspsychjeDarwinSurvivor: +121:35
TJ-wizzkidd: The Ubuntu repository archive for 15.1021:35
TJ-wizzkidd: the one used by 'apt'21:35

ruidlotuspsychje, ah... good to know21:35
kornyon1Bashing-om: I belive thats the new drive, seagate921:36
VFDPrimthanks guys for the help with the printer i will try unplug and repluging it in along with a few other things then probably have to try the HPlip yet again even though i HATE that program i might not have a choice with this other computer not sure why it wouldent work when everything is the same on both comps but oh well grandma needs her printer lol21:36
lotuspsychjeVFDPrim: good luck21:37
lotuspsychjeVFDPrim: come back to tell us what the issue was21:37
TJ-motaka2: It seems the do-release-upgrade process aborted at some point, leaving the system with some 12.04 files and some 14.04 files. To stand a chance of recovering that process needs to complete. It *might* continue if you do "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" since that should fetch all newer packages21:37

zetherooI am getting about 3MB/s data transfer speed over wifi - should be a bit better than that no?22:31

ubuntu899Hi.My USB is not recognizied at all, nothing in gparted ,dmesg | grep  USB,lsblk,lsusb.Please help.Thanks.:(22:33
zetheroodaftykins: intel 6205 - I believe it's an N22:34
daftykinszetheroo: just because the device is doesn't mean the network is22:34
daftykinscheck what it's actually connected at - and also what are you taking this 3MB/sec value from? internet based or local wired LAN to wireless transfer? it all matters22:35
zetheroodaftykins: from the same source PC to the same destination PC over Ethernet I get about 10 MB/s22:35
zetheroono, nothing to do with Internet22:35
daftykinssounds like a cheap router with 100Mb ports.22:35
daftykinsgood stuff22:35
zetheroodaftykins: the 10MB/s might be because it's going through a POE device22:36
zetheroowith a Windows PC to the same destination I get about 5MB/s on the wifi22:36
daftykinsnone of these statements actually make much sense beyond yourself, who knows your own setup22:37
daftykinsi don't know what's connected to what, or how22:37
m1dnight_Hmm it seems like my array has disappeared22:38
m1dnight_Can anyone point me to a proper tutorial on mdadm? All the ones I follow have invalid commands22:38
m1dnight_Its kind of frustrating22:38
zetheroodaftykins: not sure what to say ... I know the speed issue is not on the destination end as over Ethernet it's up to 10MB/s22:39
Bashing-om!raid | m1dnight_ Have you seen22:39
ubottum1dnight_ Have you seen: Tips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto22:39
=== user1_ is now known as istanbul
=== istanbul is now known as istanbulss
=== istanbulss is now known as istanbul
m1dnight_Yes I have seen those22:40
daftykinszetheroo: you're saying that when both source and destination are connected via wired it's got a 100Mb link, yet over wireless it's slow... so why aren't you stating what speed your router's access point runs at?22:40
m1dnight_But I just have two secondary disks as raid.22:40
daftykinszetheroo: or identifying the line speed from the laptop whilst on wireless?22:41
zetheroodaftykins: The wireless AP is N and the router is a gigabit router22:42
daftykinsthen you must have an intermediary device because 10MB/sec is not gigabit :>22:42
zetherooyes, the POE I mentioned22:42
zetherooit's inbetween22:42
zetherooit's not gigabite22:42
daftykinsthat makes 0 sense, power over ethernet doesn't incite a speed reduction, what's the device?22:43
daftykinsi've seen a lot of intel cards get used at slower than N speeds as it'd be the only way some of them work under Linux, so i'd check what mode it's associating and connecting at22:43
zetherooNetgear something ... max speed 500 Mbps iirc22:44
daftykinsdo you mean a powerline adapter, that networks over mains wiring... not power over ethernet? because that's not the same :D22:44
zetherooI already did this (http://bernaerts.dyndns.org/linux/74-ubuntu/322-ubuntu-trusty-intel-centrino-6235-slow-freeze) and then speeds were at 3MB/s instead of 1MB/s22:45
zetheroo daftykins: sorry, yes22:45
daftykinszetheroo: wow you mention this NOW? look at the '11n_disable' bit, that might have some bearing22:46
daftykinsi'd be willing to bet you've applied edits that trash 'n' entirely and so you're connected at 'g' speed, wherein 3MB/sec is the best you're likely to see22:47

zetheroodoes this help? http://paste.ubuntu.com/13550136/22:49
daftykinsshome2: talking in the #vbox channel about how to edit the path your VMs get created would make sense to me. no idea what BDR is though22:49
shome2daftykins: Thanks. I didn't really review the channels much yet.22:50
daftykinsah, well a topic is indeed best suited to the channel for it :>22:50
daftykinszetheroo: claims to be single stream 'n', 135Mb... so assuming you have good signal to this AP, it could do better - but it's Linux so you're lucky to get what you get22:50
zetherooI am a room away from the AP22:51
KageNoOniThe problem is that list of channels is huge.  It's hard to know ahead of time, if you don't know the channels, which one is going to be appropriate.22:51
KageNoOniI can see why he didn't notice #vbox immediately (I tried going through that list and didn't notice that one myself either)22:51
KageNoOniBut then again, my problem has nothing to do with running VM's.22:52

tachysLambdaComplex: the disk management utility doesn't list the file systems of the non-windows partitions. They are just blank.23:53
LambdaComplextachys: Uh....are we still talking about from Arch?23:54
tachysLambdaComplex: No, I was talking about from windows.23:54
KageNoOniDon't try to determine which is which from Windows, it can't detect linux partitions.23:54
k1ltachys: to install ubuntu you need an live ubuntu anyway.23:54
LambdaComplextachys: Well, what are you trying to do anyways?23:54
tachysI could do it from arch, but I'm worried it will be more complex and thus more prone to erasing incorrect partitions.23:54
LambdaComplexUh, how?23:55
LambdaComplexGparted is pretty easy to use23:55
k1ltachys: easiest way: see to which partition the grub entry links to23:55
LambdaComplexAnd it's not gonna be "prone to erasing incorrect partitions"23:55
LambdaComplexWhatever you're using is gonna do what you tell it to do23:55
AlexQdaftykins: What are you actually talking about? I think H.264 is still just disabled in mainstream intel vaapi-driver for G45, if the branch is still there directly on freedesktop.org's git23:55
KageNoOniFrom arch, use Gparted, select the ext4 partition that ISN'T mounted, and that's the correct one you want to install Ubuntu onto.23:55
tachysLambdaComplex: for some reason I have no internet connection from either ubuntu or arch. I cannot use pacman or aptitude to install the necessary partitioning software.23:55
AlexQOerHeks: And how do I select branch? I actually wanted to finish my question by asking how do I build and install in a way that will prevent apt-get from overwriting these files on upgrade23:56
LambdaComplextachys: Well, wired or wireless?23:56
tachysI'm reinstalling to try to fix the problem with no internet connection.23:56
tachysLambdaComplex: Wired.23:56
stangelandhi. i have a lenovo x1 carbon 2nd gen. suddently the mouse buttons on the touchpad stopped working in my ubuntu installation. why?23:56
k1ltachys: its not windows. reinstall doesnt solve issues magically :)23:56
KageNoOniTachys, do you have the same issue with a live disk?23:57
KageNoOniA live disk will use default settings, so if there's still an issue, the issue isn't with your installation.23:57
tachysKageNoOni: I have no tried a live disk. Is that a burnable medium that I can run the OS from?23:57
k1ltachys: the thing you used to install ubuntu23:57
LambdaComplextachys: ip link + systemctl start dhcpcd@[interface].service -now23:58
LambdaComplextachys: That'll (hopefully) do the trick for Arch23:58
tachysLambdaComplex: Cool, I will try that on arch23:58
LambdaComplextachys: wait, enable23:58
LambdaComplexnot start23:58
finetundraHey folks, what should I do if banshee media player is crashing?23:58
finetundrait crashes while trying to change tracks23:59
daftykinsfinetundra: reset your home folder config of it23:59
OerHeksAlexQ, i think that package is installed already23:59
LambdaComplextachys: use ip link to get the interface name. e.g. mine is enp4s0. so i'd do "systemctl enable dhcpcd@enp4s0.service -now"23:59
finetundraI have, oh and it also won't play mp3 files after a crash23:59
