zaphod_bDoes anybody know how to set a bash alias to list all my files when I cd into a directory?00:16
Dylan____Hey guys00:17
lnxmenzaphod_b: try to write bash script that takes an argument as path to folder00:18
lnxmenthen cd to this folder and ls -al00:18
zaphod_blnxmen ok cool thank you!00:18
nicomachuszaphod_b: no... just go to ~/.bash_aliases and add the line ' alias cd="ls -la" '00:19
nicomachuscd="cd ls -la"00:20
zaphod_bnicomachus: would that work though?00:20
zaphod_bahh the second makes more sense00:20
zaphod_bcool cool00:20
EriC^^zaphod_b: alias cdls='cd; ls -lh'00:20
zaphod_bYeah my original thought was to set alias cdls='cd && ls- la'00:20
nicomachusEriC^^'s is better, zaphod_b00:20
EriC^^actually it won't stay cd 'd i just tried it00:21
EriC^^function cdls() { cd $1; ls -l; }00:21
EriC^^zaphod_b: ^00:22
lnxmenEriC^^: exactly00:22
zaphod_bthat works exactly how I would have liked it to00:23
zaphod_bThanks everyone00:23
sw0rdfishis there need for a firewall when using ubuntu00:23
sw0rdfishor an anti-virus for that matter00:23
EriC^^zaphod_b: this is better function cdls() { cd "$1" && ls -l; }00:24
ikoniasw0rdfish: wasn't this just answred for you in detail in ##linux ?00:24
EriC^^it takes into consideration white spaces, and doesn't ls if it couldn't cd00:24
k1l_sw0rdfish: no, there isnt00:24
zaphod_bEriC^^: ohh awesome thanks. I had already edited the ; to && but taking into account whitespace is a good idea00:25

sw0rdfishanti-virus question yes, but hey for either of those two, ubuntu experts might have something else to say00:29
daftykinssw0rdfish: no and no00:30
daftykins(if behind a NAT firewall router already)00:30
sw0rdfishthen I shall proceed to install kubuntu for my dad's friend without any security software I guess.00:31
daftykinsconverting others, ooh mistakes will come :)00:31
k1l_educate them to keep their system safe.00:31
HappyHippiewill my USB TV Capture Tuner Card work in a linux Virtual Machine running Windows 10??00:34
tomreynHappyHippie: if that virtualization supports usb device passthrough then i don't see why not, assuming it works on windows 10 natively.00:35
daftykinsHappyHippie: it's not clear what you claim the host or guest OS will be00:36
sw0rdfishindeed ^00:36
tomreyni intereptreted it as ubuntu linux host, windows 10 guest OS00:36
daftykinsthat's nice, but lets focus on what's certain ;)00:36
sw0rdfishI suppose kubuntu 14.04.3 is most recommended.00:37
daftykinsyou might as well wait for the next LTS now ;)00:37
daftykinsdepends on the spec of the target system00:37
tomreyn"most recommended" by whom?00:37
sw0rdfishdaftykins its a bit old like maybe 3-5 years old and its got 2GB of ram with an intel celeron something cpu00:40
sw0rdfishtomreyn by the majority00:40
daftykinsi think KDE would be too much for that00:40
tomreynof? based on statistics generated how and by whom?00:40
sw0rdfishin fact I'm thinking I might have to turn off the fancy kde effects so that it works smoothly on the laptop00:41
k1l_sw0rdfish: LTS is fine, since you dont have to upgrade every 6months. but the desktop to choose is in most times a matter of taste. besides having slow hardware00:41
k1l_sw0rdfish: look at xubuntu or better Lubuntu if its about lightweight00:42
sw0rdfishk1l_ slow/old hardware plus its for a senior citizen whom I want to be able to handle the system with the GUI00:42
sw0rdfishtbh I'm trying to avoid installing windows 7 for him, want him to try with linux00:43
sw0rdfishwithout virus/trojan headaches00:43
ikoniasw0rdfish: this was all explained in ##linux00:43
sw0rdfishno it wasn't, only thing that was settled in ##linux was that I don't need an anti-virus for linux and that firefox + adblocker should be enough.00:44
daftykinsthere aren't any such headaches if you set it up properly ;)00:45
sw0rdfishdaftykins, if I turn off some fancy kde graphical effects, can the 2GB laptop handle it smoothly do you think?00:45
daftykinsKDE is a mistake imo00:45
k1l_and tell the user not to install stuff from website or other untrusted repos if he doesnt know that code.00:45
sw0rdfish95% of the times he only uses skype and facebook00:46
k1l_kde is heavy. if you are worried about perfomrance then see my last advice on that00:46
Dylan____When i boot into ubuntu i get this blackscreen then followed by what looks like a foot like the gnome thing dots00:46
HappyHippieregarding VM .....can you resize the screen on virtual machine? also can i make virtual machine always on top?00:46
sw0rdfishok then, I'll install xubuntu for him, already have the .iso file for it too :)00:46
Dylan____Should be able to happyhippie00:47
Dylan____Though gotta install virtualbox guest additions00:47
Dylan____And reboot00:47
Dylan____Should have a screen like the size of a monitor00:47
Dylan____Sw0fdfish do you know how to burn it etc?00:47
daftykinsHappyHippie: we're still waiting on you asking the first question more clearly.00:47
sw0rdfishDylan____ yes I do.00:48
daftykinsDylan____: did nomodeset help?00:48
sw0rdfishthanks for asking Dylan____ :)00:48
Dylan____Dafty had to reinstall the whole ubuntu os00:49
Dylan____It was too much honestly00:49
HappyHippiedaftykins, i want to run windows 10 in a linux virtual machine00:49
Dylan____Like i stuffed something up00:49
daftykinsDylan____: that's not a "yes i tried nomodeset" or "no i did not" :)00:49
Dylan____I did00:49
k1l_HappyHippie: the linux is too much in that sentence.00:49
Dylan____And it worked when it booted it and things00:49
Dylan____Then when i would boot it without nomodeset i got the low graphics system stuff noveau errors00:49
daftykinsHappyHippie: just VM, or Windows VM... it's not a Linux VM00:50
Dylan____So i just reinstalled ubuntu00:50
Dylan____Happyhippie you will need windows 10 iso from microsofts website00:50
daftykinsDylan____: so you need to install with a propietary nvidia driver to make use on this one, by the sounds of it00:50
daftykinsDylan____: that's not the question.00:50
Dylan____Listen last night i was helped alright i got to the point where it was too complicTed and reinstalled ubuntu00:51
Dylan____Because when i boot automatically the drivers set to xorg00:51
Dylan____For some reason?00:51
Dylan____Brb mac charger00:51
daftykinswhich is the whole point behind booting with nomodeset, to avoid that - then install the proper nvidia driver00:51
daftykinsDylan____: own up to what you don't understand, don't just keep inanely repeating the same statements00:52
Dylan____Can you not try and criticise me off what i cant do ?00:52
Dylan____Im not experieced with ubuntu00:52
daftykinsi think you're taking this too personally and totally flying off the handle00:52
daftykinscalm down.00:52
Dylan____Never had been and only got into using it this year00:52
Dylan____Im been a windows person since i was born00:53
=== PhilCoulson is now known as Sinistral
k1l_no need to get personal in here.00:53
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter00:53
k1l_that is a typical solution for issues with drivers and not beeing able to boot00:54
Dylan____Listen im not going to tell you again i have already reinstalled ubuntu on my own mac alright00:54
daftykinsyeah we already had that convo, k1l_ :)00:54
Dylan____I cant take back what im done00:54
daftykinsugh, mac00:54
OerHekshe disabled that, and now complaints, not sure what Dylan____  issue is00:54
Dylan____Yeah exactly00:54
Dylan____I got no issue00:54
Dylan____Im saying yestaday i screwed up00:54
daftykinsso go back...00:54
OerHeksoh, offtopic talk00:54
Dylan____I had the black screen had to tap shift get into root terminal mount the filesystem00:54
Dylan____Then i deleted nvidia-common or something00:55
Dylan____And i stuffed up there00:55
k1l_Dylan____: listen! if you cant state clear what the issue is and people are asking you for more and clear infos you should tone down your attitude asap.00:55
sw0rdfishis there a program that can be used to open your hotmail/live email account without using a web browser?00:55
sw0rdfishI think there is one for gmail, though.00:55
Dylan____You trying to get lippy with me?00:55
Ben64sw0rdfish: thunderbird, evolution maybe00:56
tomreynsw0rdfish: this is usually referred to as an "e-mail client"00:56
tomreynyour parents used to use such software before everything had to work on your web browser00:56
Dylan____Back to what i needed before00:57
faLUCEhello. I created user "demo" with  "adduser demo". Then, after following a bad manual, I typed "gpasswd -a demo sudo"  ... After that, I can't write to my home directory anymore... how can I fix?00:57
Dylan____Is there a lightweight flash player?00:57
faLUCEI messed up something but dunno what exactly00:57
Dylan____As in like browser00:57
nestor_go back00:57
nestor_no funciono :(00:57
k1l_flash is not lightweight. and since adobe stopped linux support for flash your best bet is to use chrome with build in pepperflash00:58
Dylan____Ahh ok00:58
Dylan____I have mozilla firefox00:58
daftykinsDylan____: i and likely other volunteers are now going to ignore you for the fact that you are acting like a British lager-lout out for a fight on a Friday night, dial back the silly attitude00:58
sw0rdfishthere still is MS Outlook tomreyn00:58
Dylan____Excuse me but im australian00:58
Dylan____And second of all im not looking for a fight on the net00:58
sw0rdfishall hail the aussies!00:59
Dylan____Im here to get help and support00:59
daftykinsDylan____: then cut the drama00:59
tomreynsw0rdfish: i can't find that in ubuntu software repositories for some reason00:59
Dylan____And if your going to support me like that then i best say i probably leave this chat00:59
Dylan____And get help on the fourms instead00:59
sw0rdfishtomreyn it only works on windows00:59
Ben64faLUCE: nothing you showed would prevent you from writing to your home directory00:59
tomreynfaLUCE: the gpasswd command you ran did not create the situation you are discussing00:59
tomreynsw0rdfish: oh then i guess that's off-topic here01:00
faLUCEtomreyn: what could create it? or, better, what can I do to fix it?01:00
Ben64faLUCE: need to know what you did first01:00
sw0rdfishtomreyn, true.01:00
k1l_sw0rdfish: you mean: thunderbird?01:00
faLUCEBen64: I really did not do anything else than installing packages with apt-get (apache, mysql and something other)01:01
tomreynfaLUCE: there are too many ways you could have broken things, it's not possible to give advice unless we know what you did or what your current configzurations are.01:01
ikoniafaLUCE: you'll do well to focus on one channel01:01
ikoniafaLUCE: you're asking this in multiple places and geting a lot of info thrown at you01:02
ikoniapick one and work it through with them01:02
sw0rdfishk1l_ sir yes sir, thunderbird looks good, Kontact on KDE has more options it looks (from the screenshots) but for what my dad's friend needs thunderbird is more than enough cuz all he needs is the inbox :D01:03
faLUCEikonia: let's try with chmod and chown01:03
k1l_sw0rdfish: i dont think any program got more options than thunderbird.01:03
sw0rdfishk1l_, I see.01:05
Dylan____sw0rdfish: evolution?01:05
Dylan____Sw0rdfish try those sylpheed01:06
Dylan____Thunderbirds probably the most used01:06
Dylan____Those are just some examples01:07
daftykinsbear in mind Thunderbird is getting abandoned soon enough01:07
daftykinsmail clients are so 90s :D01:07
Dylan____Never heard that01:07
Dylan____How come?01:07
tomreynit's very unlikely to be abandoned01:07
tomreynsurely ubuntu packages will continue to exist. just the upstream maintainer may change.01:08
Dylan____Hmm ok01:08
tomreynand maybe the product title, too.01:08
Dylan____Kinda sad if mozilla is going to abadon thunderbird01:09
daftykinsno, Mozilla are handing the project over to someone else01:10
daftykinspackaging isn't relevant to that01:10
Dylan____Daftykins about nvidia drivers can i choose whatever one i want when im logged in then when i say shutdown will that use that driver?01:11
Dylan____Cause im always had the xorg opensource driver the default for some reason01:11
sw0rdfishthanks Dylan____01:12
=== pschulz01 is now known as vk5fpaw
daftykinslike i said earlier when you got really defensive, you install the proprietary nvidia one to use that one01:12
Dylan____But by default there already installed01:13
Dylan____No problems sw0rdfish01:13
Dylan____Hmm ok01:13
Dylan____Cause i see my nvidia drivers listed but i havnt installed them01:13
daftykinsno, the open source driver nouveau is.01:13
k1l_if you dont install prop. drivers they cant be used by default01:13
Dylan____But i dont know if im installed them01:14
daftykinsplease try not to spam the channel with many enter key presses.01:14
k1l_Dylan____: where do you see that its using the prop. nvidia driver?01:14
daftykinsit's pretty obvious whether you have or not, because you would have run a command or selected to install something called nvidia...01:14
Dylan____All i know is when i go to the additonal drivers tab it comes up with the 5 nvidia drivers that can be used but have no idea if its installed or not01:14
daftykinsno they are not, those are offers01:15
k1l_Dylan____: that is only listing the drivers from the repo. if you dont check them there they are not installed.01:15
Dylan____Alright can you help me install the drivers please01:15
k1l_click on one driver in that listing01:15
Dylan____Currently its using the xorg server01:16
k1l_that is what we told you.01:16
daftykinsnouveau driver, as mentioned above.01:16
daftykinsessentially the last 10 minutes have been a huge circle where we told you what was what immediately01:17
Dylan____Yes but this is all new to me01:17
daftykinssorry, 35 mins :P01:17
daftykinsyeah but instead of asking what you think is the situation, you should've started with "i'm looking at the list in the additional drivers window..."01:17
Dylan____So those additonal drivers arnt installed yet right?01:17
daftykinsi'm not going to repeat myself.01:17
k1l_Dylan____: so i really suggest you admit yourself that you are a beginner now, again. since the "i use windows since 100 years" is not helping much now.01:18
Kakgood evening01:18
k1l_Dylan____: we answered you that already. its just a listing about what drivers are offered in the ubuntu repos. so mark the nvidia driver you want to use. then click ok(or acccept or such) and it will install that driver01:19
Dylan____im done honestly if you are not willing to support me with infomation with what im asking well like i said this is a channel that has people not willing to give there help to people im going to leave the chat now and go on the fourms ...01:19
k1l_Dylan____: stop making drama!01:20

KimmoNOWhy has not Exim in Ubuntu 12.04 not been updated since december 2012? I thought security vulnerabilities would be patched? Or am I missing something?01:25
daftykinshow are you checking?01:25
daftykinsi'd be willing to bet on a repo fail01:25
KimmoNOHere: https://code.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/exim401:26
daftykinsright but on your actual 12.04 install, how are you checking?01:26
daftykinsmaybe a specific major version has been moved on from since 201201:27
daftykinsif you want newer, time to upgrade that LTS.01:27
KimmoNOexim -bV and looking at build date. Also checked the executable.01:27
KimmoNOdaftykins: Yes, clearly. But I was sure that security vulnerabilities would be patched.01:28
tomreynKimmoNO: the application may report the same version as the original source code of this application did when release. use "dpkg -l exim4" to review the actual ubuntu patch level.01:29
daftykins!info exim precise01:29
ubottuPackage exim does not exist in precise01:29
daftykins!info exim4 precise01:29
ubottuexim4 (source: exim4): metapackage to ease Exim MTA (v4) installation. In component main, is optional. Version 4.76-3ubuntu3.2 (precise), package size 7 kB, installed size 44 kB01:29
sw0rdfishI should format a new installation in ext4 right?01:30
daftykinssw0rdfish: yes but you wouldn't have been asked that01:30
tomreynKimmoNO: 3ubuntu3.2 here points to the ubuntu patch level, those are bug fixes and - more likely - security patches made by debian and ubuntu folks to ensure these packages remain secure, even though they are based on an old release.01:31
=== Monthrect is now known as Piper-Off
tomreynKimmoNO: https://code.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/exim4 points at the source code of the official ("upstream") Exim release, it does not show you the patches which were applied to the Ubuntu packages.01:32
sw0rdfishdaftykins I chose to do manual partitioning, only because for some reason I thought of separating / and /home... but this is for a senior citizen with not much to do except skype, facebook, thunderbird, chrome or chromium usage01:33
daftykinsonly 16 months left for precise now though :)01:33
sw0rdfishso maybe I should just let it auto install things and choose the option to install the system with LVM01:33
daftykinssw0rdfish: yeah don't need to know the target user every time ;)01:33
daftykinswhat size disk?01:33
KimmoNOdaftykins: Yes, I also need something better than TLS 1.0 :p01:33
daftykinsi would avoid LVM and do a 20GB / , swap and rest /01:33
tomreynKimmoNO: sorry, it actually does, in the "precise-security" branch, which indeed has no commits since 2012.01:34
sw0rdfishnot sure what you mean there daftykins buddy. soooo, 20GB for / and like 3GB for swap and the rest for /home ?01:35
* daftykins facepalms01:35
daftykinsyeah i meant /home on the end there.01:35
sw0rdfishoh an idea just came to me as you mentioned swap, daftykins, can't I make enough swap like 5GB or whatever so that KDE can run smoothly on a 2GB(RAM) laptop ?01:37
daftykinsthat's not even vaguely what swap is.01:37
sw0rdfishif I recall correctly, swap is used by the system when the actual RAM usage reaches 100%?01:37
daftykinsyep, or to switch out programs that don't need frequent access01:38
daftykinsbut because that's on a rubbish mechanical HDD in the system you're dealing with, it can't polish a turd01:38
daftykins(i.e. make that thing any better)01:38
sw0rdfishso it can't be useful for the situation I described, like if KDE reaches 1.5GB of RAM usage other programs like thunderbird, chromium could maybe use swap?01:39
daftykinssw0rdfish: if you ever used a celeron based computer that's run out of RAM and is dipping into swap on a mechanical disk, you would suddenly develop an urge to kill01:40
daftykinsit's a horrific experience01:40
sw0rdfishwow, haha01:40
sw0rdfishoooooKAY then...01:40
tomreynKimmoNO: http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/2014/CVE-2014-2957.html01:41
ubottuThe dmarc_process function in dmarc.c in Exim before 4.82.1, when EXPERIMENTAL_DMARC is enabled, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via the From header in an email, which is passed to the expand_string function. (http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-2957)01:41
sw0rdfishdaftykins you do know they still sell intel celeron based laptops01:42
tomreynKimmoNO: the other CVE patch is missing though http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/2014/CVE-2014-2972.html01:42
ubottuexpand.c in Exim before 4.83 expands mathematical comparisons twice, which allows local users to gain privileges and execute arbitrary commands via a crafted lookup value. (http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-2972)01:42
KimmoNOYes, that is what I found too.01:42
daftykinssw0rdfish: a celeron from today has a different use-case than the first ever that came out, so you can't apply a statement from one to the other without details01:42
daftykinssw0rdfish: this is also completely off topic and tiresome now :/01:43

tambuI'm having a slowdown with systemd on bootup. according to systemd it takes 2mins+ for ifup-wait-all-auto.service to start up. The part I don't get is that my network/interfaces file is all static there is no DHCP.. so how can it be hung up like this?03:17
joeb3_tambu, make sure your hostname is listed in /etc/hosts03:23

C0nfusekiThining: Hey there... I recently saw a video regarding booting Linux hard-drive in another computer. And I want to know if anyone here has had experience with changing the filesystem's UUID in /etc/fstab and /boot/grub/grub.cfg ?  my /boot/grub/grub.cfg tells me that "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE It is automatically generated by grub-mkconfig using templates from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub"... So I'm looking for ideas on how03:26
C0nfuseki to get the UUID from the device on the other computer and configure my settings so I can 'plug and play' between my machines if I wanted.03:26
tomreynC0nfuseki: these UUIDs refer to the file systems. you do not need to change them to move a full disk from one computer to the other.03:28
tomreynthey are also not bound to specific hardware.03:28
C0nfusekihmmm. okay; well, a youtube video seems to depict otherwise: www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_lhqg_p21k03:29
C0nfusekithe guy takes his hardrive out and plugs it into another computer and it doesn't run. Was just checking how I should configure If i wanted to change.03:30
tomreynthis wouldn't be the first incident of someone on the internet being wrong. ;)03:31
tomreynbut i'm not saying he is, i'm not going to watch a 23m video to tell whether or not he is03:31
C0nfusekino worries. that's fair enough.03:31
tomreynit really depends on how you plan to be using the driver you want to swap03:31
tomreynyou didn't go into detail on this, yet03:32
tomreynis this drive you mean to swap going to be the only one to be used on both computers?03:32
tomreynare you going to boot off it?03:33
C0nfusekiyes. I would like to boot on another computer.03:33
C0nfusekithe same diskdrive.03:33
tomreynwill it just be an additional drive while you keep the 'main driver' in those computers at all time? things like these would be good to know.03:33
tambujoeb3_ unfortunately adding the hostname didn't resolve the issue with the boot hang03:33
C0nfusekino. it would be a replacement.03:34
tomreynif it'S the only disk drive on either comßputer then i would expect it to boot out of the box.03:34
C0nfusekion a fresh OS install. yes.03:34
C0nfusekii am was merely asking if anyone had to change their UUID to allow this; and if so, how they managed to do this. It appears that once a UUID is found, the kernel stubbornly tries to find it on boot.03:36
C0nfuseki*look for (i meant)03:36

=== samuel is now known as Guest98542

tomreyndeostroll1: there is a utility called powertop from Intel which you can install and run. It can hint on which application or process draws a lot of power, so you can get an idea of what you need to optimize to extend battery life. don't follow the suggestions the tool makes without reading up opn them closely, though, since as always when you optimize power consumption this can (in the worst case) result in permanent damage to your hardware.03:46

HermitOnAForestalthough there are other shortcuts, what if I wanted to change, just to become the same as in other programs, or do anything similar to change a small detail that annoys me, etc?

HermitOnAForestLike, Ubuntu and Windows?05:30
VeilireaveWindows 10 and Ubuntu 14.04 server.. Which os should do the partitioning05:31
rwwinstall Windows 10, either creating a partition and leaving empty room, or resizing the partition down from within Windows, then install Ubuntu05:32
HermitOnAForestWell, most of the times I did a multi boot system, it stoped working sooner or later. So, are you sure you want to divide a Ubuntu Server with a Windows on the same machine?05:32
VeilireaveI recently had 2 separate drives one Windows 10 and a new Ubuntu 14.04 install.. The new Ubuntu messed up the boot loader on Windows 10.. Which was encrypted and it now messed up05:32

Lurchytake asnapshot of this IDE drive that has my ubuntu installation on it...then copy it onto this SSD drive05:58

tomreynor rather, which ubuntu version created it05:59
Lurchyit was 1406:00
LurchyI just upgraded to 1506:00
tomreyn14.04 LTS?06:00
LurchyI believe so06:00
tomreynmaybe you could run "sudo parted -l", remove the serial numbers and paste it to a pastebin to look at?06:01

sandGorgonhi guys - what is the recommended  docker storage backend for ubuntu  ? I'm not able to figure out whether I should use devicemapper, aufs, etc ?06:02
LurchyI dont understand why you are requesting that06:03
Lurchycant I just copy the image over as I have doen in windows?06:03
Lurchyor is there something different I am not aware of06:03
tomreynLurchy, yes you could boot from a live usb key or a cdrom or some other hard drive and then just copy your existing hard disk contents to the new ssd.06:04
tomreynLurchy: however, this would only work if the SSD has the same or more capacity (or course), and may not allow you to benefit from later improvements to disk partitioning.06:05
tomreyn..as well as file system improvements06:06
tomreynthe reason i suggested you could provide the old disks' partitoning scheme is that it would allow to make a better recomemndation06:06
tomreynthis is not necessary to come up with the rather general statement i just provided, though.06:08
mick_can someone help me please06:31
mick_i am  not able to access my user account, i only have guest access06:33
Ben64mick_: you need to explain your problem in detail first06:33
mick_when i type in my user account password, i dont have access to that account. but when i switch to my guest account i am able to use internet and such, but a window opens up saying, when i log out, all my work that i was looking at for the session will be deleted and my computer willreturn to default when i shut it down06:38
tomreynthe latter is the nature of a / the guest account, so that's working as intended.06:39
tomreynnow for why you cannot login, that's worth a closer look.06:39
tomreynmick_: what are the error messages you get to see when you try to login and it fails? which changes have you made since it worked and when it stopped working? is there a chance you forgot or mistyped your password (caps lock)?06:40
mick_yes but as a temporary. my problem is, i do not have any icons to the left of the screen to work with in my user account06:41
tomreynso you actually can log in to your normal account, it's 'just' that the interface is not as expected then?06:41
mick_i am using the same password that i used when the OP WAS INSTALLED06:42
tomreyndid you mean to write "OS", not "OP"?06:43
mick_OH SORRY OS06:43
tomreynokay so something else must have changed since you last logged in successfully to your normal user account. do you have any idea what might have happened?06:46
tomreyn(sorry if i posted this twice)06:46
tomreynmick_: maybe you would like to reset your https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword06:47
mick_i do not have the disk, tried a reboot still unable to access the account. it shows up on the screen, but when i type in my password, nothing, no icons just the background appear06:48
mick_can i try ?06:48
tomreynwhich disk are you referring to?06:48
mick_the disk to install the operating system06:49

amicrawlerFailed to load UI file; please check your installation06:49
amicrawlertrying to get sound on sheepshaver06:50
amicrawlerbeen working on in it for the last 4hrs  no luck06:51
tomreynmick_: you should not need installation media to reset your password. however, based on what you said last, you are able to login to your normal user account, so resetting your password will not help. you need to find out what is wrong with your window manager and fix this.06:51
Ben64mick_: log in to your user, then hit CTRL+ALT+T, does a terminal window open?06:52

tomreynamicrawler: ...which only exists in ubuntu wily.06:58
tomreynactually the last line is false, sorry.06:58
mick__hey guys ya that control+ alt + T did not work07:03
tomreynmick__: do you know which graphical desktop / window manager you are using? the default one of ubuntu, unity? or gnome, xfce, kde etc?07:04
tomreynalso, which ubuntu version are you on?07:05
mick__14.04 LTS07:05
tomreynthanks for answering one of two questions.07:06
tomreynif you press ctrl-alt-f1 you should get a text login, are you able to login fine there?07:06
mick__i wish i knew how to answer your first question07:07
tomreynokay, that's fine then. i will assuem you installed the default ubuntu and are using the default 'unity' desktop, not xubuntu, kubuntu or the like.07:07
tomreynon the text based loign, you need to type your username, which will be printed on screen as you type it, then your password - which will not be printed on screen at all (not even as stars or dots).07:08
lrsBen64 my question is probably more on how I can save my install and install a new kernel than updating I thibk07:13
tomreynlrs: if you already started the upgrade that's not relevant since you're no longer on a stable release. i can try to help on the other channel in case you could not get help there so far.07:16

kaosuoaulakh: Well, an issue like that could be caused by a wide variety of reasons, but have ran any speedtests to confirm your thoughts?

Cysiolandk1l_, but it powers down disk, which is undesired, because I use hardware encryption09:55
Cysiolandk1l_, suspend to disk work OK, because then computer boots up the decryption software09:55
k1l_Cysioland: where is the issue with power down?09:55
Cysiolandk1l_, because when power to the disk gets cut off, disk gets encrypted, and when I resume from suspend, there's no way to boot PBA software, so it just shits out because suddenly disk doesn't respond to writes09:57
CysiolandSo I have to cold boot it, then PBA boots, I enter password and it proceeds further09:57
kaosuoaulakh: The output looks fine. Honestly, I am out of ideas to try and help. It sounds like this is either going to be some sort of problem with the driver for your wireless adapter or some obscure software-related issue. At this point, if it were me, I would load an Ubuntu LiveCD and see if the problem persisted.09:57

Cysiolandk1l_, still better than on #ubuntu-pl, where they suggest me to ask Arch Linux people, because they often have crazy ideas09:59

cfhowlettHappyHippie, by default, the most recently installed OS writes a new bootloader.  Hopefully it will play nice with the other OS.  Windows doesn't even try and just wipes those entries from boot options.10:37
ikoniawhen you install a distro it normally puts the boot loader on the mbr, so normally the last one thats left10:37
k1l_dafb: and most machines are one-user machines or the other users have physical access so they can evade that setting easily. so it was set the way it is for user convenience.10:37

EriC^^and photorec searches for specific file types you give it and recovers them10:46
EriC^^( it's part of the testdisk package )10:46
dafbemx_: the reason why it's file type based is because you're looking for file headers in your drive, don't make any new files or you may delete your data10:46

ilmaisinhi, has ubuntu 15.10 had problems with partition table getting lost11:35

tomreynanj7: placing "options rtl8723be fwlps=N ips=N" in "/etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf" and rebooting is what i'd try first of all.11:37

mxOahaa, but was this a linux side problem?12:56
mxOTJ-: and it's working on windows (dualboot) so shouldnt it work on linux ?12:56

TJ-frankchen_: Yes, as I thought. That's not the best way to fix it permanently. If you insist on building a replacement driver then the DKMS (Dynamic Kernel Module Supprt) is the best way since it works automatically to build the driver for newly updated kernels. Other than that a simple boot-time script loading the rt2800usb driver and writing the USB device ID to it would also work for all kernel versions13:37
frankchen_so what can i do for newer kernel to support it??13:39
frankchen_how do i  play a mp3 file in amarok IN KDE??13:39
TJ-frankchen_: I'd first prove the kernel's existing rt2800usb driver can control the device using the 'echo ID > /sys/..." method, and if so, I'd add those manual commands into the system's boot configuration13:42

anticoregreetings. i have two bugs happening on conky. i'm on ubuntu 15.10. one is: when i start my computer and login to my account, conky starts with a border. i'm using window type override and transparent yes.13:46
anticorethe other one is: when i right click on the desktop, and then click to close the menu, conky starts opening windows over itself. the conky config i have is slightly transparent so you can see them piling up.13:46
anticorehow can i fix both of these things?13:46
TJ-lo0open: also, as the GUI component would probably not be shown if the NM-openvpn component isn't running, might be worth checking /var/log/syslog for indications of whether NM loaded it13:46

TJ-lo0open: you create a NEW VPN connection first, it's separate from the current connections14:08
TJ-lo0open: VPN connections are separate entities, alongside (not subsidary to) other connections14:09
lo0openTJ-: I don't have any VPN connection added, is this required for the VPN tab to appear?14:09
TJ-lo0open: as far as I recall there is no 'vpn' tab as part of an existing connection. There is a drop-down combo box to select a VPN connection to activate when a physical connection is activated14:10

terentolerThat's exactly how I would do that14:50

In /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ they have comments that they were disabled, but uncommenting and doing an apt-get upgrade, dist-upgrade, and explicit install <package> still doesn't find new versions, even though there have been several new versions released.15:26
Skyriderusing trusty ppa's?15:26
k1lB0bsF1sh: that is the wrong way15:26
k1lB0bsF1sh: first: apt-get update will read all the repos and get the latest packages lists.15:27
k1lB0bsF1sh: then there could be the case that the PPA doesnt have packages for the new release. so that will give you errors. so better check before what PPAs do work at all15:27

SkyriderOdd though, dual = 2,4 and 5ghz, correct?15:29
B0bsF1shWell I'm being told my version is out of date and I need to upgrade, and others using Ubuntu are able to upgrade, so I don't think it's because there's just no update available15:29

SkyriderCould try15:30
k1lB0bsF1sh: you are now talking about a different issue?15:30

TJ-Skyrider: "pastebinit <( tail -n 500 /var/log/syslog )"15:31
k1lB0bsF1sh: TJ- the PPAs get disabled while the upgrade. you need to manually enable them again. but often there are no packages for the new release or you dont need them anymore since the new release got the wanted version anyway. so check the PPAs.15:32

TJ-Skyrider: the source-code of wpa_supplicant indicates that error occurs if the internal WPA driver has a problem16:00
SkyriderSo what do I do now.16:00
B0bsF1shk1l: I am on Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS. There is no error, it just says the package "is already the newest version." http://apt.sonarr.tv/ master main16:00
k1lB0bsF1sh: what package?16:01
TJ-Skyrider: 1st check which drivers it supports: "wpa_supplicant -h | grep -A 8  ^drivers: "16:01
B0bsF1shOh package name is nzbdrone16:02
k1lB0bsF1sh: "sudo apt-get update && apt-cache policy nzbdrone" in a pastebin service please. link it here16:03
TJ-Skyrider: that forum post isn't talking about Infrastructure mode; only that the device worked on Ubuntu 12.0416:03
SkyriderSo 5ghz mode works on 12.0416:04
k1lB0bsF1sh: and since that 3rd party repo doesnt use ubuntu releases. there is no new version now. so the version of the program is the same as on the old ubuntu16:04
B0bsF1sherrrmmm. So, wonder why I'm told the version is so old and I need to update ... is there a different repo? etc. I'll try to find out.  http://paste.ubuntu.com/14370295/16:06
k1lB0bsF1sh: so what ubuntu version you were using before?16:06
B0bsF1shWhoah whoah wait a minute16:06
TJ-Skyrider: there's no mention there of 802.11a; just that the driver 'works' - that was all when that device was new and chipset support wasn't widely avaliable in the kernel16:07
B0bsF1shIt actually upgraded at some point in all these commands I've been running. I was on and now it says I'm on So it did upgrade. Maybe it was the dist-upgrade, but I missed any messages telling me that it did16:07
B0bsF1shI was on 12.04 LTS now on 14.04 LTS16:07
B0bsF1shk1l: So um, thanks for the help and info, I bumbled around enough that I got it going.16:08
k1lB0bsF1sh: no. you need to run apt-get update to get the latest packages list from the repos first.16:08
SkyriderSo because of tha kernel.. i am screwed :p16:08
Skyriderunless I downgrade?16:08
TJ-Skyrider: no, probably due to the firmware binary blob16:08
SkyriderI assume I cannot use 5ghz mode regardless./16:09
TJ-Skyrider: you've already proved the driver can do infrastructure mode16:09
SkyriderWell, you did.. in the end16:09
TJ-Skyrider: Never assume. Do you have a 5GHz access point operating nearby you can spot using "sudo iwlist <DEV> scan" whilst in 802.11a band?16:09
TJ-Skyrider: are you able to make your smartphone operate as an 802.11a AP?16:10
TJ-Skyrider: that would allow you to prove the device can see and connect on 802.11a, then you've reduced the problem to being AP mode on 802.11a for sure16:11

olpirnI tried shutting down my system and it got stuck (black screen, no response, but computer still on). I forced it to shut down through the hardware. I've switched it on again, but it doesn't behave normally. Every few seconds it gets stuck for a few seconds, the mouse cursor keeps disappearing and reappearing, windows keep changing their appearance16:40
olpirn(as if fluctuating between two themes). There are some applications I can't start (like the system monitor and some of the system settings), and the system does not react to my keyboard shortcuts (such as ctrl-alt-T to open a terminal). I have no idea what's going on, but I think Unity is not setting itself up properly: ps shows /usr/lib/unity-sett16:40
olpirnings-daemon/unity-settings-daemon, each time with a new pid, and there are hundreds of instances of usd-locate-pointer. It seems to me that Unity keeps running some setup, never completing it and always rerunning it again and again. Does this make sense? And does anybody here know what might be causing this and how to solve it?16:40

SkyriderI can scan now16:56
SkyriderWhat am I looking for? list is quite big16:56
SkyriderAh, Freq.16:56
TJ-Skyrider: Yes, check if you can get it to use the 802.11a 5GHz band, and do a scan that sees an 802.11a access point16:57
SkyriderFrequency:5.58 GHz16:57
SkyriderFound one16:57
olpirnBy removing my .config directory I managed to cause the problem to disappear immediately: the ongoing setup process ceased, and things started working normally (except I didn't have everything set up properly, but that's not that big a deal). However, the minute I logged out and logged back in, the same problem returned (in addition to me not havin16:57
olpirng any of my old settings).16:57
SkyriderOke, so it can scan for a 5ghz freq.16:57
k1lolpirn: yes, the old settings are stored in .configbackup now. but to rule out what is causing that issue we needed a clean setup.16:57

SkyriderTJ-: Running sudo iwlist frequency shows me a list of channels.16:59

olpirnWhen running ps I see among the processes: /usr/lib/unity-settings-daemon/unity-settings-daemon. When I run ps again and again, I keep seeing it, always with a different PID. I think something causes it to run again and again.16:59
TJ-Skyrider: YAY!16:59
SkyriderSo why cant it use 5ghz through the kde network manager.16:59
TJ-Skyrider: so, you've narrowed it down to a problem when trying to operate infrastructure mode in the 802.11a band16:59
SkyriderSo it appears.17:00
olpirnWhen I remove .config this stops: from that moment on I see it with the same PID all the time, and my system behaves normally.17:00
makkolpirn, is journalctl -f reporting somethinkg over and over again?17:00
TJ-Skyrider: You can, if you configure a regular wireless client connection to an xisting 802.11a AP17:00
nopel0rdTJ: There's so many gcj's. Which one should I choose to install?17:00
k1lolpirn: are you sure your system is in a good state? hardisk, ram, etc?17:00
TJ-Skyrider: your issue is the 802.11a + infrastructure mode17:00
SkyriderIm lost.17:01
makkSkyrider, the best solution might be to get a nother wirlestick :-)17:01
SkyriderI get the second line though.17:01
olpirnk1l: lemme logout and login again so I can tell you.17:01
SkyriderI have another.. but..17:01
Skyridernot sure if that supports 517:01
olpirnOh wait, before I go: something else that has happened in this last login is that I don't have the top bar anymore!17:02
makkSkyrider, because it looks like that the hardware you are using dies not support the mode you trying to run in with the supported driver for ubuntu. But maybe a nother wirlessstick has less problems17:03
TJ-Skyrider: the driver can only do infrastructure mode if the firmware binary blob (no source code available for it) supports it. It looks like it doesn't. That is understandable due to the stiff legal requirments for preventing interference in 802.11a17:03
k1lolpirn: check the dmesg/syslog if that system is healthy at all17:03
olpirnk1l: How do I check that? Where do I find it?17:04
k1l"dmesg" is the command and syslog is in /var/log17:04
SkyriderWould you guys mind sharing the cmds to see the new USB network adapter I plugged in?17:05
olpirnI've tried dmesg. Got a long list of segfault's and a few other things. Anything in particular I should look for?17:05
k1lolpirn: "a long list of segfaults" that doesnt sound like a good shape.17:06

makkIf you need dual than thats maybe not the best one^^17:10
TJ-Skyrider: which uses the very same driver, and firmware, so you'll be no better off17:10
Skyriderneed? not exactly.. want? ya.17:10
TJ-Skyrider: however, if that device will work with 802.11a + infrastructure mode, then you know the WUSB600N has a problem17:11

olpirnSo I don't think I have.17:13
SkyriderSo ya.. I'm quite lost.17:13
makkSkyrider, if the usecase you need this is ok with 2.4GHz than you ok, but if not you might have to look for another device.17:14
TJ-Skyrider: right, as I said earlier, 802.11a requires DFS (RADAR detection) functionality. Apparently that device doesn't support it though it claims to17:14
k1lolpirn: any themes or fonts or curser themes?17:14
makkSkyrider, i guess there are devices out there who can handle what you need, you just have to look them up in the internet.17:15
olpirnI don't think I've done anything unusual.17:15
TJ-Skyrider: to do DFS wpa_supplicant needs to be using the "nl80211" driver, not the "wext" driver. So, check which it is using17:15
olpirnWas just "minding my own business".17:15
ioriaolpirn, have you made a back-up  of ~/.config ?  if yes, try to back-up  also ~/.compiz17:16

makkk1l, does the hd and the ssd has to be at the same size?17:35
daftykinsLurchy: i'd use clonezilla instead17:36
Lurchymy IDE is 500GB the SSD is only 64GB...and I want to make the 500GB one of two mirrored drives on a RAID17:36
k1lmakk: well, you can resize and move them afterwards. but best is if the ssd is not too small.17:36
k1lLurchy: well, that sounds like more than "just putting the old install onto a ssd"17:36
daftykinsLurchy: makes more sense to clean install to the SSD then, and remake the mechanical disk as /home17:37
BluesKajif the target partition is smaller then the source partition dd copy will fail17:37
k1li i think a raid ist just not right in that setup17:37
k1l*and i17:37
daftykinsRAID is only right if Lurchy means there will be 2 x 500GB mechanicals to either stripe or mirror17:37
Lurchywell...I want to make the ssd the boot and OS drive...and the dual 500GB the archives....17:38
daftykinsstripe (mode 0) would be a mistake there17:38

ioriaolpirn, good job, mate !17:39
Lurchywell crap17:39
makkolpirn, nice! What was the fix to the problem?17:39
daftykinsLurchy: so make a package list of what's installed now, save it - clean install to the new SSD, import the package list and install those, then set up the RAID storage and move /home17:39
LurchyI guess I need to reinstall onto the 64GB SSD17:39
daftykinsnot reinstall, *install*17:39
alepandohello Ubuntu Word... i'm testing Mate with VirtualBox in my debian17:39
Lurchydafty...how does one make a package list?   pen and paper?  or is there a util that I use?17:40

LurchyI use belarc in windows......17:41
daftykinsLurchy: dpkg --get-selections > file17:41
daftykinsi think ^17:41
Lurchykk...sounds like a plan...perhaps it can help if i reinstall apache and php it will help me figure out zoneminder also17:43
olpirnIn case someone is interested: the problem was not .config or .compiz - I looked at the dmesg logs more closely and saw that not only unity-settings was sefaulting, but also the keyboard indicator. I then remembered I added a new keyboard layout recently (apparently after the last reboot). I restored the file /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml (whi17:43
olpirnch, among other things, maintains a list of keyboard layouts) to a previous state, and that solved the problem. I guess something was wrong in the new version of the file (though I still don't know what it was, it all seemed perfect to me), which caused indicator-keyboard to crash (why crash? why couldn't it be a nice error message?), which caused17:43
olpirnthe whole unity-settings-daemon to crash (why crash? why couldn't it be a nice error message and running without the keyboard indicator), and I guess something kept causing it restarting again and again, causing the whole system to falter.17:43
olpirnEverything's back to normal now, and I'll try and see how I can add this new layout _without_ crashing the system.17:44
TJ-Skyrider: You can check on which frequencies (and DFS) are supported with "sudo  wpa_cli get_capability freq"17:44
olpirnThanks again!17:44
Lurchythx for info guys....17:45
TJ-Skyrider: Try configuring your AP mode to use a channel from the Mode[A] channels that does *NOT* require DFS17:45

olpirnmakk, it is indeed strange.17:48
olpirnI think there's a lot to improve in there...17:48
TJ-Lurchy: you could shrink the file-system(s) on the HDD first, so they would fit on the SSD, then copy them over17:48
daftykinsthe guy wants to add RAID for /home anyway so it sounds like a clean approach would be handy to me17:49
makkoh home as raid, i dont got this than it will not work17:49
TJ-I thought it was 'archives' on the RAID array?17:51
daftykinswho knows what that means :>17:51
daftykins64GB certainly won't be enough for all17:51
Lurchywell....I plan on makign this a media server...among other things17:52
Lurchywant to keep media archives on another disk...since I have 150GB+ of MP3s and such17:53
daftykinsbest way is full install to the SSD then, with /home/username/$media_folder symlink'd to the mechanical storage17:54

six86Hello. I hve problems creating a usb install stick. No matte what I try, I get "boot error" when trying to boot. I tried the startup disk creator on ubuntu 15.10. What I want to create is a 14.04 install stick. I also tried unetbootin, which took much much longer to create, but resulted in the same error...18:10
julien12six86, did you try to format the stick before ? I had the same problem18:11

olpirnioria, I sure can. But I've got some specific issues. For example, when changing the layout list in evdev.xml, the changes don't seem to take effect until I logout and login again. Is there a way to restart indicator-keyboard without having to logout and back in?18:15
Lurchymy wife...not yours18:15
TJ-Skyrider: try to use a channel that doesn't have "NO_IR DFS" after it18:16
Skyrideroke.. trying.. 3618:16
TJ-Skyrider: if it still fails doing that, it suggests that the problem isn't directly due to missing support for those functions18:17
TJ-Skyrider: but as we're talking about a very thin layer of code in the kernel that is passing requests to the chipset's firmware blob, we can't know for sure what is going on18:17
six86julien12: I tried two different sticks and formatted/partitoned them with gparted18:17
ioriaolpirn, well, i could be wrong, but that file it's not supposed  to be edited .... you do what you need from System Settings -> language Support   ( i know that not an answer to your q)18:18
TJ-Skyrider: I couldn't find any mention of 802.11a infrastructure-mode working, or not working, for the WUSB600N/rt2800usb18:18
six86ioria: It's just "Boot error" after the line that shows some Info: "SYSLINUX 6.03 EDD [...] Peter Alvin et al"18:19
Skyriderno ide18:19
TJ-tgm4883: I tested cdimages. ... was getting full speed on my link18:19
ioriasix86  you did the usb with startup disk creator ?18:20
six863 times on 2 Systems. And then one time with unetbootin.18:20
olpirnioria, one needs to change that file when installing new layouts (not just choosing existing ones to use).18:21
ioriaolpirn, ah... i see18:21
makksix86, i got this problem a time ago with archlinux and i hade to use dd command to get the iso on the usb18:21
TJ-six86: "boot error" is a Syslinux report (the boot-loader) and can be caused by certain bugs in the BIOS/firmware. Try holding down the Ctrl key as the system is booting to cause one of the inbuilt workarounds18:21
Skyriderweird stuff that it aint working.18:21
TJ-Skyrider: the error report in the kernel log is triggered directly via a call into the kernel, which calls into the device itself and passes back the error report18:22
sudomarizehow would i create an alias like "cat myfile.txt | somefunction"? where i can just call "newfunction myfile.txt"?18:22

nicomachuslooks like spotify needs libgcrypt 11, but ubuntu only has 20.18:26
TJ-As well as creating aliases, you can create shell functions that are in the .bashrc or similar. E.g. "function newfunction() { cat "$1" | "$2"; }" and then be able to call it as "newfunction myfile.txt somefunction"18:26

ubotturavster: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.19:50

OerHeksseems like the releasebug is solved, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WilyWerewolf/ReleaseNotes#Known_issues19:58
OerHeksGoChargers, so ... vnc + vino?19:59
GoChargersOerHeks:  just tried to start vino, and it says "The desktop sharing service is not enabled, so it should not be run"20:01
ioriaGoChargers,  try /usr/lib/vino/vino-server20:02
Finetundramakk: that yields floppy 55416 120:02
GoChargersioria:  That's how I launched vino.20:02
ioriaGoChargers,  ps -A | grep vino20:03
GoChargersioria:  no output for that command.  When launching vino, I get this:  ** (vino-server:5590): WARNING **: The desktop sharing service is not enabled, so it should not be run.20:03
Finetundraioria: doing it that way it does run but it says 0 bytes copied20:04
ioriaFinetundra, what .img is ?  is good ?20:04
lotuspsychjeGoChargers: cant you use openssh for the management? vnc is a danger to use20:05
Finetundraioria:  for the rhapsody beta OS from apple(circa 1997). As best I can tell, yes it's good, though I don't know how I'd check it20:06
MiningMarshFinetundra: what command did you run?20:06
ioriaGoChargers,  go in dash and type vino20:06
FinetundraMiningMarsh: I cd'd over to the directory with the .img and did "sudo dd if=<long disk name>.img of=/dev/fd0"20:07
=== Tat-Tvam-As is now known as VAsanAs
ioriaFinetundra, so you can format the floppy with Disks and try again dd20:07
MiningMarshFinetundra: yeah, like I said, I was wrong, /dev/fd0 is not in fact a floppy disk20:08
MiningMarshas far as I can tell20:08
MiningMarshon my system at least, it is a symlink to /dev/ptc20:08
ioriaMiningMarsh, no, it is20:08
ioriaMiningMarsh, i just did it20:08
MiningMarshioria: Oh okay. I went to double check and my /dev/fd was linked to /dev/pts/*20:08
MiningMarshioria: Good to know then.20:09
GoChargersioria, lotuspsychje:  vino is fixed now, turns out I just needed to go into vino-preferences.20:09
ioriaMiningMarsh,  not fd  /dev/fd020:09
MiningMarshFinetundra: try ddrescue maybe to see if it complains about bad sectors?20:09
GoChargersstill no luck with the media sharing though.20:09
MiningMarshioria: Yeah, I see.20:09
ioriaGoChargers,  gooooooodddddddddd20:09
MiningMarshioria: I thought fd0 was floppy, wasn't 100% sure20:09
ioriaMiningMarsh,  yeah20:10
ioriaFinetundra, it's also possible that your floppy (as many of mine) is old  and ruined ....20:10
daftykins^ i had to repeatedly read over 15x from the last floppy i used to remagnetise the thing (my assumption) before it'd get data off a disk again20:11

atif089Hey guys, I understand this is an official Ubuntu channel and I'm here to ask a question that might be to specific for my needs and not relevant to most of the users here. Can anyone recommend me a right channel to seek advice for my Ubuntu based remote desktop setup?20:14

ioriaFinetundra, i'm afraid , yes20:15

daftykinsatif089: just ask the question, as long as it's really ubuntu it's fine.20:15
ioriaFinetundra, it's not a cd, it's mylar (like the old music cassette)20:16
ioriaFinetundra, that's why i told you to format it again20:16
Finetundraioria: using?20:16
ioriaFinetundra, Disks20:17
Finetundraioria: shold that be preinstalled?20:18
ioriaFinetundra, yes20:18
Finetundraioria: what would the terminal command be?20:18
daftykinscall me crazy but try just formatting the diskette and putting a text file on it before trying the intended data, whatever form it may be in20:19
daftykinsFinetundra: disks is a GUI program20:19

atif089daftykins: Thanks.20:22
atif089I have a Windows laptop on which I want to install Ubuntu so that I can use it as my development laptop for developing Android apps. The reason I want to install Ubuntu is because I want to connect remotely from a desktop on same network. If all of this doesn't sound stupid, here are the few questions?20:22
atif089* Is Ubuntu a good choice or should I go with some other OS?20:22
atif089* Can multiple users connect on Ubuntu like RHEL5? I remember using NoMachine on RHEL5 where I could get 2 GUIs, 1 on the original PC and 1 on the remote PC?20:22
atif089* Is VNC also same as NoMachine?20:22
bekksFinetundra: Still on putting an img onto a floppy?20:22
atif089^^ sorry about white spaces, I typed in a different editor and it added extra line characters I think20:23
MiningMarshatif089: Yes on the first two questions.20:23
Finetundrabekks: yes. ioria has advised me to format the disk20:23
ioriaFinetundra,  or change it, if you can20:23
MiningMarshatif089: and apparently nomachine supports VNC sessions.20:23
bekksFinetundra: What for? using dd and putting a file on it destroys and overwrites every format.20:23
bekksFinetundra: Which dd command did you use?20:23
MiningMarshFinetundra: try ddrescue.20:24
MiningMarshI imaging the issue is probably a dead disk.20:24
bekksFinetundra: No need for ddrescue.20:24
deskwizardHi :)20:24
Finetundrabekks: sudo dd if=<long disk image name>.img of=/dev/fd020:24
bekksFinetundra: And what is the output of that command?20:24
deskwizardquick question for you knowledgeable people... on 14.04, the volume change popups... anywhere I can change the timeout for those ?20:25
atif089MiningMarsh: in laymans terms, I can connect to that computer and do my work without disturbing my wife's web browsing activity (except consuming all the CPU of course)20:25
MiningMarshatif089: Yeah, that shouldn't be an issue.20:25
deskwizardwell, all those kind of popups20:25
MiningMarshatif089: Any linux distro should support that no-problem.20:25
ioriaFinetundra,  if the format fails, could mean that the disk is bad ....20:25
bekksioria: Only if you used a full format using badblocks before.20:26
atif089MiningMarsh: perfect! Thanks for saving my $1000 on a new computer. I have an AMD desktop which truly sucks for Android Development. I was contemplating in getting a new i7 but I have an i5 laptop lying around. So I can use it now :-) AWesome!20:26

CruelDualBootMainly, I need to know: If I was able to start a Live Session from a flash drive without any trouble on a UEFI machine, does that mean that it's already a UEFI version of Xubuntu, or do I have to go through the steps listed here (http://linux.about.com/od/howtos/ss/How-To-Create-A-UEFI-Bootable-Ubuntu-USB-Drive-Using-Windows.htm)?20:59

CruelDualBootTo put it another way, since I used unetbootin to make the flash drive, does unetbootin automatically make the ISO image "play nice" with UEFI?21:00

BenLubarIf I do sudo do-release-upgrade -d, can I go from that to the released LTS in April or am I stuck on development versions?21:19
nicomachusliam: what's your exact sound problem?21:19
senapsdaftykins : i can't lower my brightness from power options too, that make any difference?21:19
bekksBenLubar: Depends on which version you are on, currently.21:19
BenLubarbekks: I'm on 14.04 LTS21:19
daftykinsBenLubar: that takes you to 16.04 because it *is* the current dev version, but it's generally not advisable to use.21:19
Bashing-omBenLubar: The 'd' argument is for (D)evelopment version .21:19
bekksBenLubar: Then you can use do-release-upgrade in April an update to 16.04 directly.21:20

liamlol.....fair enough21:21
liamnico...my apologies, its a long time since i was on this21:22
liamMy sound is muffled and patchy at first until i turn volum up, then it becomes clear. Also, the earphones are not automatically selected21:23
liam<liam> I have to manually choose between earphones and speakers, and to get them to work properly I need to run at full volume to kick in21:23
nicomachusliam: what's your ubuntu version?21:23
liam14.04LTS the complication is i am running on a Chromebook21:23
nicomachusliam: ok, so it does work it just sounds bad at low volume?21:25
liamYes, that's right...it sounds bad, until you push it to full volume, then it sounds fina and can be varied without problem. Also, it will not auto connect to earphones, it has to be manually chosen21:26

k1lSpaceAce: lm_sensors is the thing to use22:05
nicomachusSpaceAce: lm-sensors22:05
daftykinsSpaceAce: install lm-sensors and run 'sensors' - but it needs to be a real bare-metal OS22:05
SpaceAcethanks guys22:05
climjarkahh thanks.ill check that out! im a computer science enthusiast and want to learn as much as i can haha22:05
[Mew2]did U read it?22:06
[Mew2]cuz it aint got what im asking22:06
nicomachusno [Mew2] I didn't, that's your job... I don't need to learn about fail2ban22:06
[Mew2]it doesnt have what im asking22:07
k1l[Mew2]: there is still the official fail2ban docs: http://www.fail2ban.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page22:07
[Mew2]i looked there also, nothing22:07
nicomachusI'm sure there's something. look again.22:07
MiningMarshSpaceAce: If you want to script something using temperature, `find /sys | grep temp`, most newer systems I see use coretemp at /sys/devices/platform/coretemp.0/hwmon/hwmon1/temp%i_input22:07
[Mew2]why dont you verify yyour statements before making them22:08
MiningMarshSpaceAce: Can be a bit faster than trying to parse the output of `sensors`22:08
SpaceAcethanks MiningMarsh. running sensors has given me enough info, though :)22:08
nicomachus[Mew2]: because this is a troubleshooting and support forum, not a teaching one.22:08

stacks88if i want /home/file.sh to be launched upon system startup, do i add it to /etc/rc.local ? if so, ive got a freshly installed 14.04 system, do i add /home/file.sh BEFORE the exit 0 or after ?22:13
daftykinsden-3local-den: ask in #bash22:14
daftykinsden-3local-den: ah nm i should've finished reading before pointing ;)22:14
Ben64stacks88: depends what that script is and what it does22:14
k1l[Mew2]: did you actually read the config files? they got extended explanaition itself. even the ubuntu wiki help page had lots of info. so what is your specific issue now?22:14

k1l[Mew2]: what options?22:15
k1l[Mew2]: its self explaining.22:16
stacks88k1l but should things be placed before the exit 0 ? i am assuming so22:16
Ben64stacks88: you're likely doing it very wrong22:16
k1l[Mew2]: where is your specific issue? did you read the header of the file? what dont you understand?22:17

senapsPlease comment on if the brightness changes.     so the brighness changes but how and where should i make a comment?22:18
stacks88Ben64: so there you have it, im likely doing it wrong, whats the right way? if thatst what is inside the .sh file22:18
Ben64stacks88: what are you trying to run22:19
stacks88i just told you.. /home/test.sh i want to be ran upon system startup.. and inside test.sh is 1 line: ( while true ; do uptime >> /home/sites/$(hostname)/public_html/uptime.txt ; sleep 25 ; done ) &22:19
daftykinssenaps: write up some info on http://paste.ubuntu.com to tell us what's working maybe22:19
stacks88ive already got /home/test.sh in /etc/rc.local before the 'exit 0' line.. and it works fine.. but you say im doing it wrong, so what is the right approach ? to launch /home/test.sh upon system startup22:19
okay19I have some questions about fixing bugs. Is this the right place to ask them?22:20
Ben64stacks88: ooh yeah don't put that there, put it in cron22:20

stacks88what is the downside to putting it in rc.local ?22:20
stacks88or why not rather*, just trying to understand the mistake22:20
Ben64stacks88: you're running some weird crap as root every 25 seconds22:20

[Mew2]im tryign to get an explanation fo these item in the config file22:27
daftykins[Mew2]: i ask myself the same of how you can't work out how to use the program from its' documentation.22:27
Ben64so explain yourself22:27

Ben64HoloPed: for windows, right22:37
daftykinsamanojaku: definitely not good. which kernel? "uname -r" (it's one line so you can paste here)22:37
nicomachusamanojaku: it sounds like you're getting a lot of the errors I got when I was running on bad RAM.22:38
bob3247kll, i just needed to do a sanity check to make sure they were correct, which they were, thx for checking for me22:38

amanojakudaftykins, Perhaps a later version of Ubuntu is called for instead of LTS?22:39
nicomachusamanojaku: 3.19.0-42 isn't LTS. what's the output of "lsb_release -a"?22:39
daftykinsamanojaku: that or a newer graphics driver, something is definitely sick - i'm assuming a memtest is fine also22:39
nicomachusah .3 IS the 3.19. oops.22:39
Ben64HoloPed: http://www.karlrunge.com/x11vnc/ssvnc.html22:40
amanojakudaftykins, Yes, the memtest is fine22:40
senapsdaftykins : i add this like after that splash thing right?22:41
daftykinssenaps: yep22:41
KNNNIWhen I make a startup disk22:41
KNNNIdoes it delete everything on the USB stick?22:41
amanojakudaftykins, You know, it could also just be a matter of filing aseries of bug reports with third party providers and Ubuntu forums22:41
daftykinsamanojaku: "sudo apt-get install pastebinit && dpkg -l | grep fglr | pastebinit"22:41
KNNNIOr can I leave my files there and still make it work as a bootable USB?22:41
HoloPedBen64, that worked. thanks.22:42
gaby_Hi everyone :) I'm currently facing some problem with the installation of a PPA, and I wanted to know if someone could help me with it (I don't think it's a big deal, I'm just told that the package couldn't be found)22:42
daftykinsamanojaku: i'm focussing on what can be done in the here and now rather than the long-game really ;)22:42
nicomachusgaby_: did you run "sudo apt-get update" after isntalling the ppa?22:42
Ben64HoloPed: :D22:42
amanojakudaftykins, http://paste.ubuntu.com/14376900/22:42
Dylan____Is LIbreoffice 4 the latest version for ubuntu 14.04 or can it be updated to 5 through a ppa?22:42
gaby_nicomachus: yes I did :)22:42
KNNNIWhy do so few Ubuntu users use GNOME?22:42
amanojakunicomachus, Indeed, I did. I am pretty vigilant about updates22:43
tsapiiit appears that chkdsk gets stuck at 10% when fuxing the disk22:43
nicomachusgaby_: what's the ppa, and what version of ubuntu are you on?22:43
daftykinsamanojaku: and "pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log" ?22:43
tsapiithe drive may be more faulty than i anticipated..22:43
Ben64Dylan____: there might be a ppa, but ppas aren't supported here, you're on your own with that22:43
k1lKNNNI: its some sort of taste. and the typical gnome distribution is fedora.22:43
Dylan____Hmm ok thanks ben22:43

tsapiithe laptop wad once spilt drink on and recently came back to life22:44
tsapiiso this doesn't really surprise me22:44
gaby_@nicomachus: the ppa is the following: ppa:iacobs/au6601 ; I'm currently on the 15.0422:44
daftykinstsapii: this the win8 factory install still? can you run crystaldiskinfo on it (Windows) or run some commands from an ubuntu live session?22:44
nicomachusgaby_: it doesn't appear that ppa has a version for 15.1022:45
tsapiithe laptop saw use for 3 weeks before the incident22:45
tsapiii believe that windows was installed on it once only22:46
daftykinsamanojaku: yep looks like many graphical issues are being caused by a bad driver22:46
tsapiii can mount the drive from a live sessio22:46
gaby_@nicomachus: so ut explains that I can't install it? It's a patch made to fix a bug with a card reader (card not detected)22:46
amanojakudaftykins, Maybe I need to try the beta graphics drivers...22:46
amanojakudaftykins, Thank you very much for isolating the issue22:47
nicomachusgaby_: no, you can't install that. sorry.22:47
daftykinsamanojaku: np, good luck22:47
gaby_@nicomachus: aargh, ok thank you very much, I'll keep looking for other solutions then22:47

daftykinstsapii: a couple of commands from the ubuntu live session would be easier to get an idea if the disk is damaged22:55
KNNNIIs Fedora preferred for GNOME than Ubuntu GNOME?22:56
tsapiiwhat kind of commands?22:56
daftykinsKNNNI: ash in #gnome22:56
daftykinstsapii: depends, do you have a live session booted on that system right now?22:57
tsapiiKNNNI: ehy are you asking in here about it?22:57
tsapiidaftykins: not at the moment. it is shut down22:57
KNNNItsapii: Because I'm thinking of switching to Ubuntu GNOME22:57
daftykinsuser is struggling with channels for appropriate support ;)22:57
KNNNItsapii: But now I found out that Fedora is the Gnome distro most love best.22:57
daftykinsthat would make #ubuntu an unwise channel to discuss it, then22:58
Bashing-omamanojaku: After the driver was installed, did you ' aticonfig --adapter=all --initial -f ' ?22:58
tsapiiwell i'd suppose that people in here would have some bias as to what they would find their most suitable os to be22:58
amanojakuBashing-om, I used 'settings' and 'additional drivers'22:59
daftykinstsapii: yeah hence trying to direct to the right channels to ask22:59
tsapiianyway i can boot to both windows and the live session when i get to the laptop again23:00
lyzyai use lubuntu 15.10 ... i installed "browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash" and "pepperflashplugin-nonfree" ... is pepperflash stuck to a version23:00
daftykinstsapii: when'll that be?23:00
tsapiii remain curious as to what the commands are23:01

Malgorathdo you guys think a dual core amd at 1.8Ghz 3G Ram and a 60G SSD is good enough to run ubuntu 15.10?23:04

daftykinsMalgorath: it's idiotic23:07
Bashing-omamanojaku: That syas no driver is loaded .. How have you tried to install the proprietary driver ? does ' /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh ' apply ?23:07
Guest31374Que onda!23:07
KNNNIkll: The actual GNOME team is behind GNOME for Ubuntu?23:08
lyzyanewest pepperflash is and mine is and won't update to a newest by command ... does anyone know why23:08
amanojakuBashing-om, I used the GUI graphical drivers installer23:08
KNNNIkll: In your opinion does Ubuntu GNOME run slower than Ubuntu MATE?23:08
Malgorathdaftykins, do you have some logic or data to back that up? or is that just a personal opinoin?23:09
ssfdre38i am trying to set up a vhost on apache but im getting an error 403 and i did set it up right to read the vhost to send to the right docroot23:09
daftykinsssfdre38: you moved the default config and edited it to reflect the new vhost yes? or were there already multiple on this server?23:11
k1lKNNNI: dont know about actual comparisons in speed of gnome-shell and mate.23:11
daftykinsssfdre38: the facts speak for themselves - since it doesn't work, you can't have done it right ;)23:11
amanojakuBashing-om, But you make an interesting observation.23:12
KNNNI"Even to this day people keep complaining about GNOME 3, how the interface doesn’t make sense, how the developers don’t listen, and how the design is brain-dead."23:12
KNNNIAppears GNOME 3 should be relegated to a niche segment. Most dislike it.23:12

ssfdre38daftykins, i made a copy of 000-default.conf and changed all the variables to match what im trying to do and it is no longer reading the default doc root but it is just showing a 403 error code23:12
amanojakuIam gonna reboot and see what happens23:13
k1lKNNNI: its the same with unity. you only hear the loudest voices complaining.23:13
daftykinsssfdre38: you then enabled the site by name? so it's present in both sites-available and sites-enabled?23:13
daftykinsssfdre38: restart apache2 and see if it errors out23:13
KNNNILook at this:23:13
ssfdre38already did several times23:14
KNNNI"Happy GNOME 3 user here. I would go so far as to say I don’t think I could go back to GNOME 2 at this point, and if GNOME 3 were to change rather drastically I’d probably look for something with at least some similar to GNOME 3 (although unfortunately Unity is the only thing I’m aware of and it’s still not even close)."23:14
daftykinsssfdre38: wouldn't be surprised if the apache user hasn't got the correct permissions on the path you set it to23:14
daftykinsKNNNI: you're going way too off topic now, this is support not desktop religion23:14
k1lKNNNI: do you have an actual ubuntu issue? else i would ask you to switch to #ubuntu-offtopic to chat about gnome.23:14

daftykinsssfdre38: drop the www. ; add yourself to the group 'www-data' then own the docroot as www-data:www-data and restart apache23:26
daftykinsssfdre38: and for the love of Tux, use http://paste.ubuntu.com or pipe commands into "pastebinit" in future, full desktop screenshots of text are horrific23:26

daftykinstsapii: looks like someone's been dropping that thing :P no issues though, purely file system related by the sounds of it.23:39
tsapiiwell it has been spilt drink on. i suppose that's equivalent23:40
* zykotick9 notes he is also an ass, and has guest* set to ignore... nick is your friend.23:40
tsapiianyway, if chkdsk.exe cannot complete, then the partition must be corrected by something else23:41
daftykinstsapii: the whole laptop? yeah i'd put the disk in another system and chkdsk it there ; no other program is going to help23:42
tsapiihmm i came to this while googling: http://askubuntu.com/questions/47700/fix-corrupt-ntfs-partition-without-windows23:42
tsapiithe case seems mostly the same23:42
OerHeksi would use the ultimateboot-cd *if* i had no windows23:43
tsapiiwell with the exception that the smart diagnostics say the disk is fine23:43
daftykinstsapii: boot Windows install media, shift+F10 to run a command prompt, then chkdsk it from there... however this topic will need to be moved to ##windows since it's not appropriate here23:43
OerHeksopensource, legal, and enough bios mbr file tools to choose from23:43
tsapiiOerHeks: i'll keep that in mind23:44
tsapiidaftykins: i don't have any windows install media at hand currently. i'll give this ntfsfix a try in case something spectacular happens23:44
daftykinsno, that's a really BAD idea23:44
tsapiiwhy so?23:45
daftykinstsapii: just download one, it's freely available to grab a boot CD.23:45
tsapiiwell then. i'm going to need something to install it to23:45
daftykinsbecause those utils may not have been worked on recently enough to factor in windows 8 and 10's changes to how things work23:45
daftykinsno as i said above you can chkdsk it solely from the preinstallation environment23:45
OerHeksoh, nice, better way23:46
tsapiiwhat does the preinstallation environment mean here?23:46
daftykinsthe thing you're looking at when you boot win7, 8 or 10 install media23:47
daftykinsas i say cmd can be run from inside it23:47
daftykinsshift i think23:48
lmwyes, correct23:48
tsapiibut i do not have the install media at hand23:48

daftykinsalso bcdedit seems to have claimed many folks installations :P23:50
akikdaftykins: tsapii by enabling the boot menu you gain access to the same preinstallation environment without having to use the install dvd23:51
k1lmultimedia: and since kernel 3.16 there is no -pae kernel package, because all kernel have pae then. you cant boot a non-pae system anymore.23:51
multimediak1l: good thought, but 1G OF RAM? It has like a 1MB or 8MB option IIRC, -- anyway I'm using standalone graphics anyway23:51
daftykinsakik: but the fs is creamed, so it's not worth risking23:51
OerHeksmultimedia, if your motherboard supports up to 4 gb, your missing space is occupied by your videocardmem/controllercache/processorcache.23:52
multimediak1l: how could I confirm this via OS?23:52
daftykinsmultimedia: why did you install 32-bit? that makes no sense on such a system in 2016.23:52
akiktsapii: you said that you're able to boot windows?23:53
