jasabellaStreusel... do you have xev installed?00:00
jasabellaer, strangeland00:00
daftykinsjackoo: sorry for the delay, try setting an administrator password (write it down!) as this may unlock further options that are currently hidden00:00
k1ltachys: but you could just connect the laptop to a lan cable, and then come here and we can try to fix that issue00:00
Streuseluhh no..00:00
tachysk1l: thanks, I will try that to test if a fresh install would fix the internet problem.00:00
AlexQOerHeks: I already have the newest mirror from git, I am just wondering if the files I install with make install won't be overwritten by apt-get when upgrading packages00:01
tachysk1l: My ubuntu installation is on my desktop (not laptop) and is connected via Ethernet cable to my router.00:01
k1ltachys: i doubt it. better to get the facts whats going wrong and solve that. no need for reinstalls00:01
AlexQOerHeks: Should I just remove these packages after building and installing from source?00:01
jackoodaftykins: ok i'm going to try00:01
tachysLambdaComplex: So I ran "systemctl enable dhcpcd@enp2s0.service now" and got "Failed to parse lined 'ow'"00:02
OerHeksAlexQ, you can pinn them00:02
ubottupinning is an advanced feature that APT can use to prefer particular packages over others. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PinningHowto00:02
LambdaComplextachys: -now00:02
LambdaComplexnot now00:02
tachysLambdaComplex: sorry, I meant to say that I did use "-now"00:02
LambdaComplextachys: okay, just try systemctl enable and then do the same thing but with systemctl start00:03
tachysLambdaComplex: "-now" does not seem to be a valid flag for systemctl, based on the man page.00:03
LambdaComplextachys: oh hey, it's --now00:03
AlexQOerHeks: But how can I pin them when there is no alternative package? I mean, there is no package to prefer - I am not building a package, I am just installing with make install00:03
* LambdaComplex is literate, he swears00:03
tachysLambdaComplex: "systemctl: unrecognized option '--now'"00:04
tachysAlso, "systemctl start" results in "Too few arguments"00:04
LambdaComplextachys: systemctl enable dhcpcd@enp2s0.service --now00:04
tachysLambdaComplex: I'm doing this on my arc partition btw.00:04
k1lLambdaComplex: tachys #archlinux for arch support, please00:04
LambdaComplexk1l: wait, i got a thing for this00:05
tachysLambdaComplex: that's the same command I entered, and it doesn't recognize the --now option.00:05
jasabellastangeland... do you have xev installed?00:05
LambdaComplex"we do ask you to stay as helpful as possible"00:05
AlexQOerHeks: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/intel-vaapi-driver - lists only 1 normal built packages: i965-va-driver. So what if I just remove that?00:05
stangelandjasabella, i dont know. its ubuntu with xfce00:05
tachysBut really I'd like to debug the ubuntu partition, if there's some way to troubleshoot it from within ubuntu and not require a reinstall, I'd be much obliged for your help :)00:06
k1lLambdaComplex: i am exhausted of you making a drama everytime. please make sure you read the guidelines and stick to them, thanks00:06
LambdaComplextachys: eh, just do enable and start separately. what's wrong with your ubuntu installation?00:06
k1l!guidelines | LambdaComplex00:06
ubottuLambdaComplex: The guidelines for using the Ubuntu channels can be found here: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines00:06
tachysLambdaComplex: it doesn't have an internet connection.00:06
k1ltachys: is that some sort of special network setup?00:07
LambdaComplexk1l: yeah, that's literally what i just quoted00:07
daftykinstachys: nobody's helped you yet huh? mount the partitions and check for /etc/issue to find your ubuntu's / partition :)00:07
tachysIt's also in a strange sort-of zombie state where it was originally installed at Ubuntu Server Edition, but then i added ubuntu-desktop because I needed GUI for something.00:07
daftykins(not sure if you're still on the partition identification step)00:07
jackoodaftykins: i have nothing more (just a password before  entering the bios)00:08
tachysI'd rather just wipe the ubuntu installation and start over.00:08
SkepticalParrotKDE Plasma just crashed and I cannot sign out. How do I restart sddm?00:08
daftykinsjackoo: ok, try making sure windows is shutdown properly by pressing windows key + R (that's super+R) and entering "shutdown -s -t 1" ; then boot from powered off - and be sure to use a USB 2.0 port if possible, or just try each.00:08
tachysdaftykins: The problem is that I was using Window's disk management program to wipe the partition, but windows can't figure out which partitions are which.00:09
daftykinstachys: yeah it won't be able to read them, so use a live session00:09
k1ltachys: make a live ubuntu usb. you will need that to install anyway00:09
tachysdaftykins: how do I use a live session?00:09
daftykinsas k1l says00:09
tachysk1l: haha, ok.00:09
k1ltachys: on that use "gparted" to sort the partitions00:09
AlexQOerHeks: It seems to be only that file (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/i965_drv_video.so) and some docs. That package breaks only 1 package: libva-intel-vaapi-driver , which is just a meta package installing the appropriate binary package with the vaapi driver, am I correct?00:10
tachysWill do. thanks daftykins k1l LambdaComplex00:10
stangelandhi. i have a lenovo x1 carbon 2nd gen. suddently the mouse buttons on the touchpad stopped working in my ubuntu installation. why?00:11
AlexQOerHeks: So is it okay to remove it before building? That way they will just not be re-installed magically when upgrading I guess?00:11
OerHeksAlexQ, yes, standard.but go ahead wit your git if you think that gives better support, you only need to rebuild with any kernel update i guess.00:11
MACscris ubuntu using systemd yet or are their plans to move to it?00:12
k1lMACscr: its standard since 15.0400:12
bazhang!systemd | MACscr00:12
ubottuMACscr: systemd is the default init system for Ubuntu 15.04 onwards. For information on transitioning from upstart to systemd, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SystemdForUpstartUsers00:12
SkepticalParrot How do I restart a service if the desktop crashes?00:13
MACscrthanks guys00:13
shome2SkepticalParrot: What service ?00:14
shome2service servicename restart00:14
MACscrwhat do you guys think of systemd timesyncd versus standard ntpd?00:14
AlexQOerHeks: Well, it is only video decoding acceleration, so nothing essential. Actually it did wasn't even installed automatically with Ubuntu (vainfo was reporting a problem when trying to open that file), so I had to look that file up and install it manually, but unfortunately it only provides MPEG-2 for my chipset. Well, I think it actually should have been there automatically with libva itself00:15
k1lSkepticalParrot: systemctl restart ssdm00:16
AlexQOerHeks: va-driver-all was removed as well.00:16
LambdaComplexMACscr: timesyncd seems nice for cron jobs. i haven't really used ntpd aside from the systemd ntpd service for keeping my clock synced00:16
LambdaComplexwait, i might be getting timesyncd confused with timers00:16
LambdaComplexi am. forget i said anything :P00:17
jackoodafykins: I tried it but nothing changed , the liveusb is stil unrecognized.00:18
MACscrwell debian 8.2 uses timesyncd versus ntpd and id rather not have to manage configs for two different types. Seems i can just remove timesyncd and use ntpd instead.00:18
daftykinsor stop using two distros and maintain a consistent environment ;)00:19
MACscrdaftykins: ha. i wish. Unfortunately not everyone else feels the same00:20
daftykinsMACscr: bear in mind if you're talking servers, then 15.xx don't belong on servers in production00:20
MACscri prefer ubuntu, but proxmox uses debian and cpanel uses centos. So i have to use at least those 2 or 300:20
MACscrdaftykins: right, im only at 14.0400:20
daftykins*nod* presumably 16.04 will be the first systemd LTS00:20

It's the Asus X205TA, specifications can be found here: https://www.asus.com/us/Notebooks/ASUS_EeeBook_X205TA/specifications/ I know that there are tutorials online but not for my particular needs and as someone who is relatively new to Linux I am having trouble applying the info I can find online to my situation.00:28
KageNoOniAnyone know how to restart cinnamon w/o the menu or panel?00:29
KageNoOniIt disappeared after my computer locked from being afk.00:29
AziCtrl + Alt + 1 to get tty1, sign in and issue the poweroff/reboot command?00:29
AziShould work00:29
daftykinsthat's not what was asked ;)00:30
KageNoOniThat's rebooting the whole computer.  I can do that if I have to, but honestly, it's easier to sign out and back in (I can hit Super to make the menu appear)00:30
k1lKageNoOni: you can restart the xserver but this will kill all running programs00:30
jackooDafykins: thanks for trying to help, i will try later.00:30
KageNoOniI just need cinnamon itself restarted.00:30
k1lKageNoOni: sudo lightdm restart00:30
KageNoOniAnd I do have access to the command line as well as the menu, if needed.00:30
AziFor Gnome it would be sudo restart gdm, something like that should be available for cinnamon too00:30
daftykinsAzi: so did you prepare a USB flash drive with 15.10 64-bit desktop on? and are you keeping Windows as i asked earlier?00:31
Exagone313Hi, I want to redirect an input port (from internet) to a local port (this is to use a port under 1025 without root).

KageNoOniNormally I can right-click on the panel, select Troubleshoot, then Restart Cinnamon.00:32
Exagone313I tried to scan this port with nmap and it appears filtered00:32

cheetahw26_apparently I'm doing a stupid idiot tonight... I've been trying to port a solution from 12 to 14 and overwrote the group file, then rebooted... the current (overwritten) group file doesn't have the same login user in the sudo group and I never set a root passwd... how can I get to root?00:34
Exagone313cheetahw26_: chroot00:35
daftykinsAzi: as above, keep the chat in here please.00:35
cheetahw26_I've used chroot to jail users and to compile a custom linux distro within another, but I don't know how that could help me right now00:36
ldshHi, I try to run ubuntu-gnome on a M2 NVMe ssd formated in F2FS. I'm folowing this tutorial: http://www.richud.com/wiki/Ubuntu_1504_Vivid_Install_To_F2FS_Filesystem00:36
Azidaftykins: I am sorry I do not know how to pm someone, /msg <name> does not work00:37
daftykins_don't_ PM.00:37
daftykinsi said don't!00:37
Exagone313cheetahw26_: if you have an access to the drive, you can mount it, then edit a file or chroot00:37
AziOh, don't. I am sorry it's late.00:38
Exagone313with chroot you will be root00:38
ldshI made some adaptations (like the first "update-initramfs -u" was not successful but after installing f2fs-tools before copying from the ext4 to the F2FS, it worked.00:38
k1lldsh: thats not an ssd but a nand flash orientated filesystem00:38
cheetahw26_eh... it's like an Intel ComputeStick... not sure if I can just boot to another distro and then mount/edit... (that would be easy/awesome)00:38
cheetahw26_in such case, I don't think I'd have to chroot, right?  I could just mount the drive and modify the group file...00:39
ldshMy problem now is that it stop at startup with "A job is running for Wait for...en to Quit (time/ no limit)00:39
daftykinscheetahw26_: boot recovery mode00:39
ldshk1l: yes, friendly to flash file system00:40
cheetahw26_that might work, if there's an option... how, I can't remember off the top of my head?00:40
k1lldsh: ext4 works fine on ssds00:40
ubottuIf your system fails to boot normally, it may be useful to boot it into recovery mode. For instructions, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode00:40
ldshk1l, in deed, this is why the tutorial first install on EXT4.00:41
Azidaftykins: So what I did when I was actually getting Ubuntu to boot and all was I installed a seperate boot loader which I downloaded from the internet (bootia32.efi) on the ESP (/efi/boot/). When I did that the installation failed when the installer was executing grub-install00:42

daftykinscheetahw26_: did you say this is not ubuntu but some custom hacked up thing of your own creation?00:44
Azidaftykins: I did download the one the guide(s) was suggesting, that is the one that I installed on the ESP00:44
cheetahw26_it's intel, but not a regular computer...00:44
daftykinsi know what the compute sticks are00:44
daftykinsAzi: yes but that's only to boot the flash drive, you have to install 32-bit GRUB on the actual installation...00:44
ldshI have this message <<F2FS-fs (nvme0n1p4): Unrecognized mount option "errors=remount-ro" or missing value >> that leads to a [FAILED]00:45
cheetahw26_nope... I did not say that... this is definitely ubuntu 14, just porting over some custom software... I'm just an idiot and manually modified the /etc/group file incorrectly, then rebooted... now I don't have any valid users in the sudo group00:45
daftykinsldsh: remove that from /etc/fstab00:45
ldshDoes it meens that F2FS does not suport this mounting option and I should simply remove it from my fstab, or that there is an other failure before and that it is not even able to remount00:46
daftykinsldsh: 'unrecognised' says 'remove me' to me.00:47
ldshdaftykins, Ok, at worst I can still format the F2FS partition and copy again from the EXT4 (in case it would damage the file system)00:47
cheetahw26_and I never set a root password, so I can't use su -00:47
ldshdaftykins, Ok ;)00:47
cheetahw26_eh...  woe is me00:47
daftykinsldsh: i genuinely think it's a big waste of time trying to use this file system.00:47
daftykinscheetahw26_: do those things not support booting a live session?00:47
ldshdaftykins, Oh, and I just saw he removed it in the tutorial, sorry00:47
cheetahw26_they might... and I hope so, I've already done a bunch of work, hate to lose it all...00:48

daftykins"sudo update-grub" perhaps, although if one installation is EFI and the other is not, then you'll be in trouble01:05
ldshdaftykins, already made the update (needed to find the f2fs partition), I would have expect both OS (W10 and Ubuntu gnome) to use EFI.01:07
daftykinswell that's only going to happen if you booted and installed as EFI01:09

CharcoalfireBashing-om: Home backup and installation of 14.04 went successfully.02:16
Bashing-omCharcoalfire: Outstanding ... much improved, no ?02:17
daftykinsmo78: did you install with updates?02:17
N1sMdaftykins: It seem's that I have very poor performance. maybe i shouldn't have been so optimistic about installing on older core 2 processor02:17
daftykinsN1sM: what're the rest of the specs? something like lubuntu or xubuntu would be better on there, not full ubuntu - Unity is too demanding02:18
mo78yes I allowed updates to instal during installation02:18
daftykinsmo78: then that's something to try without :)02:18
N1sMdaftykins: It's mostly the graphics bit, however i believe its partly due to the amount of system ram.02:18
daftykinswhat are we talking, 2GB?02:18
CharcoalfireBashing-om: Yes! Everything seems really fast now.02:18
[Relic]any idea where I can see the path settings for things like PYTHON_LIBRARY ?  Trying to figure out why this program can't seem them02:18

mo78kk, try basic instal/ then try updates post instal. ty will give it a shot now.02:18
mo78but one more Q before I try02:19
cfhowlettN1sM, you can run ubuntu on that, but you'll almost certainly get better performance from lubuntu as it's optimized for low spec and legacy hardware02:19
mo78if the basic instal dont do it can I select drivers during instal?02:19
daftykinsN1sM: that's plenty, i'd just try xubuntu instead02:19
daftykinsmo78: what drivers02:20
Bashing-omCharcoalfire: Pleased it has all worked out . Worth all the effort .02:20
N1sMdaftykins: I am currently running Ubuntu Gnome02:20

sorin-mihaianyone knows how "safe" would it be to install linux-image-virtual-lts-wily in a 14.04 server?02:21
daftykinssorin-mihai: i don't see any point at all to run the wily kernel in trusty.02:22
N1sMwow Lbuntu looks horrid :( guess its finally time to dump my laptop for a new one...02:22
cfhowlettsorin-mihai, I can think of lots of reasons NOT to run the wily kernel in trusty02:22
sorin-mihaiis just that virtualmin isn't supporting wily, so I have to stick with trusty for a while...02:22
N1sMdaftykins: lbuntu looks like windows 3.1, is that normal?02:23
daftykinsN1sM: xubuntu is much nicer.02:23
N1sMdaftykins: does xbuntu support cairo-dock and various other things?02:23
daftykinssorin-mihai: i'm not familiar with that, but newer kernels are more relevant for up to date bleeding edge desktop or laptop hardware, not servers.02:23

TracedSo uhm.. is anyone willing to possibly help a fellow out Dual Booting Windows 10 and Ubuntu under UEFI? I've run around to multiple places today searching for an answer and have wound up reinstalling windows etc at least three times.02:38
cfhowlettTraced, see ##windows for windows installation support.02:38
kingplusplusdaftykins http://imgur.com/a6UaLhb02:38
TracedSome places say start from scratch with Ubuntu, others say start from windows02:38
cfhowlettTraced, windows first.  always.02:39
TracedRight. Disregarding the other information now.02:39
TracedI've Dual Booted Windows 7 and older Ubuntu before but I had a friend helping then as well.02:40
cfhowlettTraced, win7 and win10 are worlds apart due to uefi ... but you already know that.02:40
TracedI have a generic Win 10 pro USB and the Ubuntu 15 USB ready to try again as soon as Windows finishes "Getting Ready" -.-02:40
Tracedcfhowlett: Oh, definitely.. XD02:41
daftykinskingplusplus: bit messy, you're going to have to boot a live session in the VM ideally, (as in the ubuntu desktop ISO) then delete the swap and extended partitions (sda5 and sda2) then resize sda1, recreate a swap partition, edit the /etc/fstab file on sda1 and then boot back into it.02:42

TracedI've read someplace that EasyBCD and windows with EUFI are bad and "outdated"..?02:44
cfhowlettTraced, gl/sad to say, I decided not to dualboot as I use ubuntu 98% of the time.  I installed virtualbox to ubuntu and put win7 in a virtualbox.  see !wfm02:44
daftykinsTraced: yes don't touch easyBCD02:45
TracedI'm not a total Linux newbie but as far as setting up a proper Dual Boot (especially with Windows' weird UEFI load.. I'm simply lost02:46
Traceddaftykins: Righto02:46
daftykinsit's pretty simple, install 10 with some space left over, or resize the disk... then boot ubuntu as EFI and install beside02:46
kingplusplusdaftykins thanks, is this the only option? My pain is that i deleted the iso and i have limited bandwidth 10gig monthly which is almost out :)02:46
cfhowlettTraced, best practice: get windows sorted out first.  fully installed, updated all that.  THEN set up buntu.02:46
daftykinskingplusplus: pretty much02:47
TracedI saw also that I should disable Fast Startup for Windows until after GRUB2 is set up proper02:47
kingplusplusdaftykins i wouldn't loose all the installed updates, and files right? it took me sometime to get this os setup02:48
daftykinskingplusplus: no02:48
kingplusplusok thanks02:48
daftykinshave some faith in the advice given :P02:48
cfhowlettkingplusplus, but you DO have your stuff backed up anyway ... right?02:48
daftykinscertainly wouldn't be hard with a VM :>02:49
kingpluspluscfhowlett note really anything that matters just the cost of re-installing things in terms of paid bandwidth :)02:49
Bashing-omTraced: "fast boot" is a Windows Hibernation. such that the hard drive is "in use" . Then ubuntu can not access it .02:50
kingplusplusdaftykins, how about taking a snapshop?02:50
cfhowlettkingplusplus, understood.  Humbly suggest that as you are a buntu user, you should always have an install USB with you as a best practice.  I keep my silver Kingston USB quite stylishly mounted on a lanyard around my neck.  Cuz you never know ...02:51

cfhowlettstuartyeates, happy2help!  fwiw: ffmpeg and libav-tools have kissed and made up.  ffmpeg will return to ubuntu in 16.04.  yay!02:54
daftykinskingplusplus: i'd copy the full thing before attempting the resize personally02:56
TracedWhat will Ubuntu's naming convention after Z is reached become?02:56
zykotick9cfhowlett: could ffmpeg/libav change be because ffmpeg is in both debian's unstable & testing branches?  ;)02:56
cfhowlettTraced, zesty zulu and then we don't know what's next02:56
TracedEnd of everything ;-;02:57

daftykinsfinetundra: you can't, because PuTTY doesn't have any X libs to draw anything on the Windows host... you have to use something like xming03:37

LonelyDanbo.... WTF? I guess "primary display" isn't where it puts my taskbar and such. Can I fix THAT?03:40
LonelyDanboI mean... I guess it's kinda nice to have less clutter on my main display... the clock's on the right side of my left display...03:41
Luterodaftykins: Right. I'll try that then03:41
LonelyDanboaw crap. my applications are all launching on the secondary display because it's on the left. I hope this won't be a problem. I noticed when I changed my game settings from OpenGL to D3D, it would totally crap the bed when I'd try to resize the window. I'd have to close the window because I couldn't see to exit the program.03:52

Pinkamena_DI have been trying to figure out the best way to save a few monitor configurations. I have a laptop with two docks. One I use at work, with one ext monitor and the laptop monitor itself, to the left. The other is at home where I don't use the laptop monitor, but I have two external.05:11
Nlh1901i can install linux on my playbook05:11
Excltrue daftykins, but it is a pretty OS05:11
SeriouslyLaughi disagree, and use it as a daily driver. but that's neither here nor there.05:11
Pinkamena_DI don't know if it is possible to save config based on connected monitors. IT seems online that some people say this is what is supposed to be, but it does not always work, it seems to be based on the way the docking is connected.05:12
daftykinsExcl: you're beginning to make me think you still use it :P05:12
Nlh1901hey guy i need help plzzzz05:13
Pinkamena_DAlso one big issue I have is that if I have the laptop monitor off, and I sleep, and then remove the laptop from the dock, if I turn it back on usually it stays black and I have to force poweroff.05:13
asdopas(Lubuntu 15.04) I can't install SMplayer. I get broken dependencies, which I've listed here: https://bpaste.net/raw/dac5cd23e3b605:13
SeriouslyLaughNlh1901 I don't understand your question -- did you have an issue installing?05:13
Pinkamena_Danyway, does anyone have any monitor config software they would recommend?05:13
asdopasDo I have the wrong kernel version?05:13
SeriouslyLaugh!lubuntu | asdopas05:14
ubottuasdopas: lubuntu is Ubuntu with LXDE instead of !GNOME as desktop environment, which makes it extremely lightweight. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu - /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.05:14
asdopasThat channel is too slow, and besides, Lubuntu uses the Ubuntu kernel base. I thought I'd get a faster answer here, especially since I don't think LXDE is the issue.05:15
Nlh1901can i install linux on my blayberry playbook?, thanks05:15
SeriouslyLaughfolks here aren't too keen on helping with any distribution that isn't pure Ubuntu, asdopas05:15
=== sireebob is now known as Yuna
asdopasBut I don't get it. This is an issue with APT dependencies. It would be the same if it was pure Ubuntu.05:15
SeriouslyLaughyeah i agree. but it helps to keep the channel clutter down. there are approx 2k users here at any given time.05:16

daftykinsSeriouslyLaugh: you're wrong, flavours are supported just fine05:17
ubottu!Ubuntu-GNOME, !Kubuntu, !Xubuntu and !Lubuntu are simply flavors of Ubuntu that come with GNOME, KDE, Xfce, and LXDE (respectively) installed as default, instead of Unity. Other specialized flavors of Ubuntu include !Edubuntu, Ubuntu !Studio, and !Mythbuntu.05:17
ExclI abandoned it for Ubuntu 3 weeks ago lol daftykins05:17
SeriouslyLaughdaftykins then can we update the !lubuntu factoid?05:17
daftykinsno, because the specific channels still exist, but here is also fine.05:17
=== sireebobSF is now known as sireebob
asdopasFor some reason, the added strings after the version number are throwing APT off. libgcc1 1:5.1~rc1-0ubuntu1.1 should satisfy libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1)05:20
asdopasI think05:20
SeriouslyLaughi've seen people ask for help on each of those flavors and told to ask in their respecitve channels, so i'm just a little confused on what the rules are05:20
asdopasAre you really going to die on this hill SeriouslyLaugh? I'm not asking anything super complex05:21
SeriouslyLaughhaha nope, I just like helping and I feel bad when I give someone the wrong advice05:21
asdopasdaftykins do you have any suggestions? I remember you from when you helped me with the rtl8192cu (Belkin USB dongle) and NVIDIA ancient video card kernel module mix up.05:22
jaydrohey can someone answer my question as to weather i should replace ubuntu 14.04.1 with ubuntu mate or INSTAL MATE INTO 14.04.105:22

jaydroDoes anybody have ubuntu knowledge to give me05:24
daftykinsjaydro: this is a support channel, not an experimental memory transfer lab unfortunately05:24
jaydroshould i replace 14.04 lts with mate or just install it onto it05:25
e66So I have a package p with version 3. p-3 in server. Local pc is using p-3. Then the devs upload p-2 to apt-server. Now how can I install p-2 without mentioning the version name? Dont want to mention version name because devs can upload any version anytime.05:25
SeriouslyLaughdaftykins no one here is getting paid, mate. we're all trying to help. relax.05:26
daftykinsyeah i've been here for years helping :) i know that05:27
daftykinsi'm also perfectly relaxed, i just find it annoying when you give bad advice off google results05:27
asdopasdaftykins: I tried --remove on the SMplayer PPAs I had, but it didn't work05:28
asdopasStill getting the unmet dependencies error05:28
ubottuTo disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html05:28

daftykinsok so that's the 15.04 default archive package, seems alright05:31

daftykinsPinkamena_D: do not do the above05:38
daftykinsnever, ever install anything after the fact for intel graphics.05:38
Pinkamena_Dwoah, ok05:38
daftykinsit will make a mess of your system and is a complete waste of time05:38
daftykinsas long as your install is up to date that's the best you can really do05:39
Blue1daftykins: good to know.  I have had to install drivers for ati and they are a pain.05:39
Pinkamena_Dthose sneaky people over at intel! grr05:39
daftykinsyeah AMD and nvidia require / or at least can use proprietary drivers added after, but it's not really the approach for intel05:40
daftykinsi mean sometimes you can get better support with newer kernels...05:40
daftykinsbut sandybridge is pretty old05:40
daftykinsi should know, i'm typing from one05:40
Pinkamena_Dbut yeah, I had three monitors working a loooong time ago, but something has happened in the middle and it stopped. I only use two monitors actually, but I want the third active because if the laptop screen it not running, then if I wake the computer after undocking, the screen never comes on at all.05:41
Pinkamena_Dwhile asking the question a new error came up from the display config. a pop up box comes which says "Failed to apply configuration: %s" - Looks like someone forgot to provide the actual error message to print/printf? \05:43
Pinkamena_DHowever the error looks like it is generic, no search results look like my situation exactly...05:43

asdopasFor some reason, it wants ~ubuntu6 and not ~ubuntu6.105:46
daftykinsJuggie: so you think because you'd get 10MB/sec download off one, that it's somehow slow?05:47
Canonanyone know the package that contains minicom05:47
daftykinsapt-cache search minicom05:47
Juggiedaftykins, its not slow if im the only downloader05:50
Juggiebut i kept getting 200kb/s05:50
Juggiechanged mirrors, downloaded at 15mb/s05:50
Juggiebig difference05:50

b3h3m0thIs it possible to create a wifi hotspot with custom network IP address in ubunut ?11:29
b3h3m0thCurrently when I do the "Use as hostpot", a hotspot gets created with IP range. But I am already on an ethernet network with same range. So I need to use different network address for the hotspot11:31
ikoniait's creating the hotspot with that range because you're on that network11:31
ikoniayou'd need to bring up a different interface do host the other range11:31
ikoniathere maybe a setting within network manager to change the range of the hotspot11:32
b3h3m0thobviously they are different interfaces11:32
b3h3m0thwlan0 and eth011:32
b3h3m0thikonia: yes, and I am looking for what that setting is11:32
b3h3m0thwhere to do that and how11:32
ikoniano idea without looking11:33
ikoniaI suspect it's taking the range of your WIFI interface to extend it11:33
ikoniathats how it's creating the hotspot, to join in to the existing rang11:33
ikoniathis is interesting, if you set up the hotspot like this, you maybe able to set the range inthe ipv4 tab as it looks like it uses dnsmasq to host the dhcp range11:35
nubhave you got to be very good at programmimg for google code in11:36
ikonianub: pardon ?11:36
b3h3m0th_did I miss anything ?11:37
ikoniathis is interesting, if you set up the hotspot like this, you maybe able to set the range inthe ipv4 tab as it looks like it uses dnsmasq to host the dhcp range11:37
ikoniahave a read on that, and see if you can set the hotspot that way and set the ipv4 settings, I think dnsmasq will use those settings to setup the range11:38

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.12:34

ikoniayou can't have a new user usign different drivers from another user12:58
ikoniathey are kernel level modules and configured in the X server  not per user12:58

KiborgAssumed wrong then12:58
ikoniawhy did you assume the new user was using noveau ?12:58
KiborgI checked12:58
KiborgHe does12:59
ikoniachecked what ? how ?12:59
k1lKiborg: loginto the terminal with that user (ctrl+alt+t) then make "mv .config .configbackup"12:59
k1lthen relogin to that user.12:59
KiborgUnder the additional drivers, the noveau are chosen12:59
ikonianoveau is not an additional driver12:59
ikoniait's part of the kernel13:00
ikoniaI'm not really confident with the information you're giving me13:00
KiborgSorry about that13:00
ikoniathe nvidia "drivers" are system wide and confiurd in the xorg server,13:00
ikoniaI suggest you skip to the solution as k1l suggested13:00
ikoniaremove your user config from the broken user, login, make sure the problem is gone, and then rebuild your personal settings13:01

agent_whiteRafibd01717: Really, you don't _need_ to do this, but you can for good practice.16:22
agent_whiteRafibd01717: If that didn't work, do `gpg --list-keys` and find the one relating to mongo.16:23

daftykinsi would not recommend using standard ancient FTP on a server in 2015 regardless, Ricky_Rat500518:42
Ricky_Rat5005daftykins - I need either tftp or ftp for Freepbx. What would you recommend for that?18:44
daftykinsnever used any phone systems.18:45
daftykinsso it's solely for the software and config update provision via trivial FTP?18:45

gt8ost4li need help i accidently deleted documents and all my files are gone can someone help me recover this file20:21
ubottuSome tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel20:22
k1l_gt8ost4l: on the terminal?20:22
gt8ost4lk1l: what20:23
k1l_gt8ost4l: how did you delete that documents? on the terminal? on the desktop? did you look into the trash?20:23
gt8ost4lyes itwas a mistake cause i thought mega nz upload it so i peremently deleted it20:24
gt8ost4lcan i somehow get it back?20:24
k1l_gt8ost4l: see the bots message20:25
ioriagt8ost4l, in addition you can try with photorec in the testdisk package , but it will recover a lot of files20:25
k1l_gt8ost4l: in short: not without massive work, and not with a 100% chance.20:26

gt8ost4lso what can get back my documenrts20:27
Dredd|I've never even chatted there.20:28
k1l_Dredd|: ask in #freenode20:28
SlidingHornDredd|, You can ask in either #freenode or ##linux-ops.  Not really a topic for here though20:29
k1l_gt8ost4l: there is not a "click here and get all files back" button. so you need a lot of work20:29

=== Dredd| is now known as Dredd
MonkeyDusta gui to do it would be nice, unfortunately, i lack the skills to create one20:31
k1l_gt8ost4l: so see the answers you already got.20:31
ioriagt8ost4l, lets say that you removed mp3 files, you install testdisk, run sudo photorec , look for filters in Files Options,  and select only mp3, then it'll ask you where to save the files. but they are recovered under anoymous name  and you don't know if they are the files that you lost or files that you voluntary deleted20:33

ablegreenAlright guys, need some help. I have a linux laptop. It's got wifi. It has no problem connecting to two of my wifi networks (each has a diff wifi brand router). However, for one of them, I have to reboot the dhcp server on the laptop to get an ip address every time I connect. Any ideas?21:08
motaka2ioria: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13565651/21:08
ioriamotaka2, ok, sudo apt-get update  && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade21:08
bekksablegreen: It sounds pretty pointless to have a dhcp server running on your laptop when trying to connect to a wifi network.21:09
bekksablegreen: your laptop needs a dhcp client, not a server.21:09
ablegreenbekks: Sorry, I meant dhcp client21:09
ablegreennot server, correct.21:09
bekksablegreen: So what do you mean by "reboot the dhcp client"?21:09
ablegreendhclient -r21:10
ablegreenNot exactly "reboot"21:10
ablegreenbut forcing it to get a new ip address21:10
ablegreenthen dhclient21:10
bekksWhich is totally different from "rebooting".21:10
nmatrix9Hey all just did a xubuntu update and for some reason my audio is now borked - I no longer can get sound and my audio card is no longer detected.21:10
daftykinsso you open a terminal and run "dhclient <interface_name>" ?21:11
bekksablegreen: So which IP does your laptop have prior and after connecting to that particular network?21:11
MonkeyDustnmatrix9  in a terminal, type    alsamixer    see anything unusual?21:11
ablegreenbekks: None.21:11
daftykinsi bet the first is APIPA :>21:11
=== Numline1 is now known as Guest59086
nmatrix9MonkeyDust, cannot find file or directory21:11
bekksablegreen: "none" for which part of my question?21:12
ablegreenbekks: No ip address before attempting to connect to the network21:12
bekksablegreen: And after?21:12
ablegreenbekks: wpa_cli status says it's "Connected" but there's no ip address in ifconfig. Just says "BROADCASTING" or something.21:13
bekksablegreen: That doesnt answer my question.21:13
ablegreenbekks: : No ip address before nor after.21:13
bekksablegreen: then your wifi is not providing a DHCP server.21:13
MonkeyDustnmatrix9  install alsa-utils, then try alsamixer21:13
daftykinsi reckon the timing is just off21:14
ablegreenbekks: Works fine with my Macbook though?21:14
daftykins*other laptop21:14
bekksablegreen: then how do you get a valid IP on that network?21:14
nmatrix9MonkeyDust, Hey FYI, I reinstalled my alsa-base, just recently not sure if I should reboot though.21:15
ablegreenbekks: I just told you earlier. By doing dhclient -r and then dhclient.21:15
ablegreenOn my Macbook, I don't have to do that.21:15
bekksSo name the IP you get after that.21:15
nmatrix9MonkeyDust, I have alsa-utils installed but I'm reinstalling again.21:15
bekksThats what I asked you to do, earlier.21:15
bekksablegreen: arent you using NetworkManager for your wifi connection management?21:16
ablegreenbekks: No this is ubuntu server21:16
bekksWhich is not a valid argument against using NetworkManager.21:17
nmatrix9MonkeyDust, I'm gonna reboot21:17
ablegreenbekks: Maybe there is something wrong with the router being configured wrong, idk21:18
daftykinsablegreen: are you using a hardcoded config in your interfaces file which calls wpa_supplicant to connect from this host?21:19
ablegreendaftykins: Yes but I use wpa_cli for controlling pa_supplicant to disconnect and connect from certain networks  as well21:20

daftykinsalso, servers on wireless make me chuckle21:25
ablegreendaftykins: Ah okay.21:25
ablegreendaftykins: If it works, maybe I can look into its source to figure out why I can't get wpa_cli to connect & give me an ip address21:25
ablegreenThanks dudes21:26
daftykinsi reckon it's timing21:26
ablegreendaftykins: Timing between what?21:28
ablegreenI wonder if nmcli uses wpa_cli21:28
daftykinsnetwork association and DHCP query firing off21:28
daftykinsi'd write a script to associate manually then run dhclient; if it fails and yet works with a brief delay between, you know you're onto something21:29
bekksI'd just use nm-cli21:29
daftykinsi said that XD21:30
bekksdaftykins: :)21:30
* daftykins pats his box of cat6 UTP21:31
ablegreendaftykins: It already works with manually associating and then using dhclient. The problem is that why do I have to use dhclient? Should just get an ip address automatically like it does with the other network.21:31
