tomOfFacebookHey guys I just installed ubuntu on this really old computer... Some issues: The computer is extremely slow (i installed 32 bit because I have less than 2 gb of memory), the wallpaper is "glichy", and I think changing the compter from unity might speed the computer up a little00:01
matthewp2hey l1;00:02
matthewp2hey k1l00:02
k1ltomOfFacebook: yes, Lubuntu is the better choice. its made for old and slow hardware00:02
matthewp2im on ubuntu mate but it says doenload sdk for windows what do i do00:02
k1ltomOfFacebook: and amount of ram got nothing to do with 32/64bit. if your cpu can go 64bit use that00:02
k1lmatthewp2: choose other downloads on that site00:03
tomOfFacebookk1l: would I have access to the same kind of repo? I need to be able to install some of fax software on lubuntu00:03
k1ltomOfFacebook: yes. its "just" a more lightweight desktop (and some other settings for old hardware) but the same packages00:03

TBotNikAll, Dropbox installed different directories on last 4 installs.  Trying to find an accurate way of determining which directory is actually active as need to process some files from there.  Any ideas/suggestions?00:10
bob2017k1rk: didn’t work.  the most recent set is when i used an xorg.conf manually made for triple-head.  it detected two monitors (both DisplayPort monitors), but instead of detecting the DVI, it detected the seond displayport twice00:11

SonikkuAmericaTBotNik: Um, is "files" a user on the machine?00:32
k1lTBotNik: so that is a special setup from that admin.00:32
KwiatuszynK1rk yeah i know. I try using this webcam in Windows but there was only black screen.00:33
TBotNikSonikkuAmerica: No just a designated dir for "files"00:33
TBotNikk1l: Yup00:33
SonikkuAmericaTBotNik: Oh, OK. Yeah, you may want to talk to your sysadmin about that. There must be a reason.00:34
K1rkKwiatuszyn, my suggestion is to run "lsusb" first and paste us the relevant line of output, that should have the device identifier for your webcam.00:34
svetlanaTBotNik: it's up to dropbox, ubuntu has no say in how dropbox works or is configured ( apart from dropbox being proprietary and potentially spying on you ) you could read dropbox config to find it out00:34

adrian_1908hello. I'm trying to build "mpv" from source to help test a patch but the config script complains about an outdated development version of libav. It seems the 15.10 package is so old, that it's not even listen on the website anymore, is that possible or am I misreading this?00:35
k1lmatthewjp2: go to the site where you downloaded that software and click "installing the sdk" on the left side.00:36

TBotNikSonikkuAmerica: Anyway regardless of where Dbox has installer issues, so when you go to install, and not the first run, you can not point it to your existing Dbox dir.  Therefore multi dirs and need to find, with my PHP script, which is actually the active one!  Any ideas? symlink doesn't work as all the dirs are symlinks!00:36

SonikkuAmericaTBotNik: If all the dirs are symlinks, can you find out with [ ls -l ] where they point to?00:38
svetlanaTBotNik: steal algorithm from http://dl.dropbox.com/u/340607/pyDropboxValues.py?dl=1 to get the value of the dropbox dir in your script00:39
adrian_1908bazhang: Well, as I mentioned I'm testing a patch, so it's whatever version that is, i.e. something fairly new.00:40
artoisadrian_1908: funny how the sillier choice always has inflated versions :p00:40

miebsterllldino: I think I'm fighting Xubuntus desire to do this graphically, yet the GUIs don't really apply the changes I ask them to03:38
ttthi ... what's the alternative for truecrypt for ubuntu03:38
ttti cannot create more volume in it03:39
cfhowlettttt, veracrypt is a fork03:39
llldinomiebster, You probably have to flush the cache for the card you're trying to change03:39
llldinoWhat is your goal exactly?03:39
anabainwhy a kate window (it also seems to be a (sub)process of its own; at least ps aux shows a PID for it) won't be killed by kill -9 PID?03:39
ttti'll try veracrypt .. but is there any workaround without use other software?03:40
miebsterllldino: I have a 2nd card plugged straight into a device, I need to set its ip statically03:40
miebsterllldino, the 2nd card has 2 ports03:40
gambl0reany other laptop recommendatioons for around $20003:41
tttcan i open truecrypt volume with veracrypt?03:41
llldinomiebster, I'm reading this now: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/network-configuration.html03:41
cfhowlettgambl0re, has #hardware03:41
cfhowlettttt, ask veracrypt support03:41
llldinoIf you jump down to Static IP Address assignment, I think that's what you're looking for03:42
miebsterllldino: do you know how to get xubuntu to reread that file and apply it?03:44
tttcfhowlett, thank you. look like it can mount truecrypt volume03:44
cfhowlettttt, lucky you!  :)03:44
llldinomiebster, I'd give your computer a reset if you can, there's probably a better way using systemctl but I don't know what the command would be03:45
llldinosudo systemctl restart networking.service maybe?03:45
llldinoRather, its NetworkManager.service instead of networking I think03:46

ballmerubuntu mate will not let me use anything but the higher screen resolution on startup and gives an error about not finding the correct video mode, but lets me adjust to what i want when i run mate-display-properties.  any idea why?04:36
Shutem_DownMaybe because the settings aren't being saved to file after you've adjusted them.04:38
Shutem_DownWhat type of video card?  Any additional video card software you're using?  like Nvidias?04:38
ballmerintel built in video04:38

andyworkcan I get some software or configure my terminal to navigate back using only ".." instead of "cd .."?04:40

xangua 10:42 PM <cfhowlett> NoobsterMcTorval, open ubuntu software center. select package. install. / doesn't get easier than that05:47
NoobsterMCTorvalwhat about if the program is not on the software center?05:48
andyworkNoobsterMCTorval: sure you can download and programs off websites, but generally this is not the way to go05:51
andywork* and run05:51
cfhowlettNoobsterMCTorval, you can install 3rd party stuff.  you break it, you fix it, as it will NOT be supported here.05:52

tespryou can find the pepperflashplugin-nonfree in the ubuntu software center06:01
artoisNoobsterMCTorval: you can install random downloads06:01
artoisNoobsterMCTorval: it's just a really bad idea06:01
artoisNoobsterMCTorval: not because you're on Unix, just because it always is06:02
NoobsterMCTorvalso you literally use the software center for EVERYTHING you download. everything on the software center is the offical repositories?06:02
artoisif and when you start doing that, don't expect your Unix system to perform any better than the average horrendous Windows install06:02
artoisI don't, but I do use the package manager06:02
artoisand mostly source code and not precompiled binaries06:02
artoiswhat you should do is: 1) check the ordinary repos 2) check the other repos (contrib, multiverse, etc.) 3) reconsider whether you need this or there isn't something better 4) look for a .deb 5) look for specific awful instructions on upstream site 6) look for any random POS06:03
tesprNoobsterMCTorval: when you download a file from the web ubuntu software center opens the file <---- you asked this question06:03

artoisthings you won't find in the main repos are things like...06:11
artoisextreme bleeding edge development things for developers06:11
cfhowlettNoobsterMCTorval, steam will not fully function in a live usb session.  why do  you not install ubuntu?06:11
artoisand games that were designed specifically for other OSes that just came out or something06:11
tesprsoftware center sometimes malfunctions when you run it from a cd instead of a harddrive06:11
artoisand, most of all: horrible software that you shouldn't want at all06:11
NoobsterMCTorvaldo you have to use the terminal when you install third party repos though?06:12
NoobsterMCTorvalthird party pograms i meant06:12
artoisNoobsterMCTorval: something around 60,000 official packages, and no doubt countless ones you can find laying about06:12
tesprthe errors you get are because you didn't install ubuntu but run it from a cd06:12
artoisNoobsterMCTorval: no you don't06:12
tespryou can install everything from ubuntu software center gui, no need for a terminal or commandline06:13
artoisNoobsterMCTorval: you can just find a .deb (the Debian [what Ubuntu is based off] equivalent of a .exe, let's say), and double click it06:13
artoisyou just have to keep in mind that the Debian equivalent of a .exe is not meant to be, ideally, randomly found, downloaded, and ran; it's meant to be installed via a repo via the package manager06:13
artoisbut at least if it's a .deb it'll still be installed by the package manager06:13
artoisif it's some unicorn like a .run or .bin, you will have no idea what it'll do06:14
NoobsterMCTorvalyeah, i have done that before. but i seem to have to extract the file06:14
artoisand those will be just like a .exe on Windows, doing whatever they please06:14
artoisNoobsterMCTorval: for a .deb file?06:14
cfhowlettNoobsterMCTorval, because clicking .debs does not grab dependencies ...06:14
NoobsterMCTorvalsorry guys, im a special penguin06:15
artoisNoobsterMCTorval: it's possible your file manager hasn't associated .deb with the dpkg frontend for installing them, but I doubt it06:15
cfhowlettNoobsterMCTorval, so WHY do you not install again???06:15
cfhowlettinstall ubuntu, not booting from USB06:16

okovkoNot a USB stick wireless, I mean to say07:28
hateballokovko: Intel wifi drivers are much improved in later kernels. You have the option of going to 16.04 soon (or to alpha right now), or you can install a more recent kernel in trusty and see if that makes it better07:28
okovkoIn a trusty?07:29
ubottuUbuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) was the 20th release of Ubuntu and is the latest !LTS version. Download at http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/ - CHECK FOR POINT RELEASES at http://releases.ubuntu.com - Release Info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TrustyTahr/ReleaseNotes07:29
hateballokovko: You can install the kernel from 15.10 with: sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-wily07:30
hateballokovko: Then you will be able to pick between that and the regular 14.04 kernel in grub menu if you want07:30
vbotkaokovko, 6300 is ultimate 11n stable since ~2010. Would you post the output of "iw wlan0 link"07:30
okovkoIs Grub the pre-launcher?07:30
okovkoSo I would select the kernel mode during boot-up07:31
hateballGrub is the bootloader, yes07:31
hateballokovko: If you want to go back to the older kernel in case something is not behaving, yes07:31
okovkoThanks for the tip. 14.04 was the experimental version back when I installed it :P moves quick07:31
okovkovbotka: How do I pipe the output of that command into my clipboard?07:32
vbotkatry diodon07:32
hateballokovko: command |nc termbin.com 999907:33
EriC^^okovko: iw wlan0 link | nc termbin.com 999907:33
EriC^^will give you a link to it pastebinned07:33
okovkoWhat's Diodon?07:34
okovkoNvmd I skimmed the man page07:36
vbotkaokovko, MCS-5 is low (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11n-2009#Data_rates) What is the AP?07:38
george4nHey guys, I'm currently looking for way to change the audio device from terminal. eg. from HDMI out to headphones out. This is needs to be in a startup script. Is there any way to make stipulate that a device must be the default sound device? Or an order of devices at least?07:38
george4nbasically, HDMI out always defaults for me, I would like it that if in other devices are present, they should be default and never HDMI out07:38
EriC^^george4n: maybe you can make a udev rule that runs a script when they're plugged in07:39
EriC^^and a udev rule that switches hdmi on when you plug that in07:39
okovkoMy AP is a wireless router07:40
okovkoAre there routers that don't play nice specifically with Linux? I wouldn't imagine they know the difference07:40
george4nEriC^^ ill check that out thanks107:40
EriC^^no problem07:41
vbotkaokovko, specificaly waht type?07:41
SachiruFor 16.04, will Ubuntu give us the option of booting from a ZFS snapshot?07:41
okovkovbotka: I'll go check, I don't remember07:41
OerHeksgeorge4n,  install gnome-media, see these 2 identical answers, http://askubuntu.com/questions/398030/change-default-sound-device/502133 ( with pics)  and http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=224997507:42
okovkovbotka: Cisco Linksys E300007:43
OerHeksit can select the default audiooutput.07:43
george4nOerHeks Thanks, thats exactly what im looking for!07:44
OerHeksgeorge4n, tricky part is the hidden option in the launcher, but the fix is described cleasly.07:44
george4nwait...what hidden option?07:45
OerHeksNoDisplay = true07:46
vbotkaokovko, both the adapter and AP are capable of 5GHz. You might want to configure a channel in 5GHz and set "wireless-N only" in AP. For other devices "2.4GHz" get separate AP.07:47
okovkovbotka: I already have a 5 GHz channel configured :( I think07:48
okovkovbotka: I'm definitely using that one on Windows07:48
vbotkaokovko, E3000 is dual-radio, you  don't need another AP07:48
vbotkaokovko, yourtermbin says "freq: 2412" "SSID: EmeraldShark"07:49
okovkoWait you're right, I'm trying to select the other one and it's failing somewhere along the line07:49
hateballI don't suppose you tried my advice to get a recent kernel07:50
okovkoNot yet, it looks like I'm not even using the 5 GHz band, which would result in awful connectivity07:51
okovkoSomething is misconfigured07:51
hateballThing is you arent supposed to have to configure anything clientside when the driver works properly07:51
hateballokovko: "dmesg" will spit out info if your card tries to connect to an AP and things go wrong07:52
okovkowell that outputted a loooot of info07:54
hateballYes well not everything is related to wifi07:54
hateballBut you'd see things like how it may try auth and fails, etc etc07:55
okovkoit authenticates, associates, and then deauthenticates because of a 15=4way handshake timeout07:57
hateballOh well. I'd just grab a new kernel and test. But that's me.07:59
okovkoi'm going to try that now07:59
vbotkaokovko, Intel 6300, 6205 work fine for me. But, my first step after installation is to disable NM https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NetworkManager#Disabling_NetworkManager08:02
okovkoErrr, how do you manage your connection without the network manager?08:03
vbotkaokovko, with wpa_gui http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/dapper/man8/wpa_gui.8.html08:04
vbotkaokovko, or, manual editing wpa_supplicant.conf08:04
afidegnumwhat's the codename of the current release of ubuntu14.04 ?08:04

HazWardIs there a way of improving the font rendering in URxvt?08:11
HazWardMy font looks amazing in Firefox and Gnome-Terminal but in URxvt it's not as pretty08:11
vbotkaokovko, I'm sure it's not the kernel. My guess is NM. As a first step you might want to disable NM.08:12
Liubuntu is really funny, I'm trying to take a screenshot of bluefish menu and it just disapears whenever I press the PrtSc button ... why would PrtSc has any effect on anything other than doing what it was made for?08:13
somsipHazWard: what font? Mono tend to me better in terminal IMHO, eg: http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/81746/how-can-i-get-better-looking-fonts-in-my-terminal-urxvt08:13

huguangjunI'm using Ubuntu08:14
somsipHazWard: no idea. Well, some links there for you to play with, but I'd suggest using a decent mono spaced font08:14
OerHeksLi start gnome-screenshot, and set timing in seconds, so you can open the menu without interfering with keypresses08:15

huguangjunHow to use this chat software08:20
okovkovbotka: I will try that tomorrow. Some time ago, my father decided I was staying up too late and did some admin shtuff on the router to disconnect my mac address past midnight08:20
okovkovbotka: Of course I just spoofed my mac address, but it might still be working on the 5 band (the deauth seems to indicate that?)08:20
vbotkaokovko, :D08:20
okovkovbotka: I'm too tired to figure out how to spoof it on Ubuntu, now, because now I looove sleeping earlier than later08:20
okovkovbotka: I'll let you know if it 'fixes' itself tomorrow :) thank you for the help; in case it is that I'd feel bad putting you guys through a goose chase08:21

MyWayhello, can I convert a linuxmint installation to ubuntu? e.g. from linux mint 17.3 to ubuntu 14.04.3 by changing sources somewhere?09:23
B_l4ckcompanies too09:23
MyWayas it's the same base I thought maybe I don't need reinstall anything inside /09:24
llldinoMyWay, You can change your repo sources in /etc/apt/sources.list09:25
l_but it's not easy for not just about some desktop envoriment09:25
MyWaybut on Linux mint, inside /etc/apt/sources.list, there are no ref to linux mint09:25
llldinoI believe Linux mint just uses the ubuntu repos09:26
llldinoYou'd be better asking in #mint though09:26
MyWayyes, they use a mix, I think09:26
l_is that really people like mint more09:28
OerHeksMyWay, no, do a fresh install, no guarantees09:29
MyWayoh :(09:29
OerHeksl_, no reason to choose mint, ubuntu provides cinnamon desktop too nowadays09:30
MyWayI have to say I liked it, but I don't like the fact I can't use gnome-shell on mint09:30
MyWaybecause they block gnome dependencies from what I've understand09:30
MyWayand I prefer gnome desktop to cinnamon/mate09:31
l_It confuses me a not09:31

rana_arcaicahow do i format a pendrive on lubuntu?09:38
cpmxrun “sudo apt-get install gparted” and follow the instructions to format it09:39
OerHekslubuntu should have the disks utility too, see system programs in the menu09:39
l_you can use fdisk for instead09:39
cpmxyea but the disk utility isnt as good09:40
l_for what? on windows?09:40
cpmxits not as advanced, I dont think you can change the partition table09:41
l_fdisk has higher rank than g09:42
Zulu_TooOerHeks speaking of Lubuntu, I installed it today and it is the best distro I have ever used. Fast install and fast response with computer. The only thing that I would hope the programmers would consider is the installation time delay when choosing TIME ZONE, if you sit there and wait it rushes to the next install application. Not a bad thing, but if you do unatended install, that means more time. Otherwise what a great piece of art 09:42
l_you can mkfs to any format by solving utility09:43
cpmxisnt fdisk all comand line, so it is a lot harder to use09:43

Ad1dschense: anyway you can use this printer with USB connection, and share it in your network11:23
Ad1but then your computer must be turnet on, when somebody want to print something11:24
dschenseyear, thats right. thinking about going back to 14.04.. LTS for the wunnin11:24
dschenseany hint for me for rolling back nicely? getting all installed apps back and so on ?11:24

AlbertoAd1 One last thing... If the name of the shared folder has two words... How should I type it in /etc/fstab?11:25
piotrek334Ad1: drivers are loading fine, all channels are there but im experiencing strange noise, all hollow and in general metallic-like .. been fiddling with the modprobe options ("/etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf"), but had no luck so far .. strange is that there's the same behaviour under windows which could mean theres a hw-defect .. ubuntu is my last effort to see if it can work :)11:25
piotrek334ill just give booting the liveiso a try :)11:26
OerHeksAlberto, shared folder with a space? ugly .. try "folder\ name"11:26

Xanolotuspsychje, They're stale because of a VMWare bug, so I figure I just have to use Ubuntu to remove them. The VM itself is gone, so there's nothing VMWare can do about this anymore.12:05

hateballmalex__: It all depends on how you use your machine, only you know this. The upside is that as long as you separate /home you can always resize things later on using gparted-live12:30
wahyui dont know about > -f install12:30
malex__i have already installed ubuntu 14.04.3 and im afraid that i did the partitioning wrong 1-root 25 gb 2-home 900000 gb 3-swap 2 gb its corect?12:32
k1lwahyu: "sudo apt-get install -f" tries to install all packages that got canceled due to an error12:33
k1lmalex__: swap = ram size. if you want to do hibernation(suspend to disk). the rest looks good12:34
hateballmalex__: depending on how much software you install you may need to have larger root, but as I said you can always adjust this. For a "normal" user it should be plenty.12:34
hateballmalex__: If you do not use suspend, and have a lot of ram, well... you dont need swap at all12:34
k1l25GB is very plenty. i suggest using 15GB for /. so he should be fine12:34
malex__4gb ram12:35
hateballThen you'll want to have some swap12:35
k1lmalex__: so make swap 4gb.12:35
malex__ok thank you very much guys12:35
wahyukil : yes i know that to instal a package must be complete with a dependency. but i dont know, what a instruction > -f install.12:44
k1lwahyu: "sudo apt-get install -f" you dont need to put a package name at the end12:45
k1l(if i understand you correctly)12:46
malex__a terminal comand to see what drivers ived got installed?12:47
hateballmalex__: there are plenty, anything in specific you are looking for?12:48
malex__doesnt work12:49
hateballmalex__: if it needs restricted drivers, then you can use the ubuntu-drivers command12:49
hateballmalex__: "sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall" will installing anything deemed needed and missing12:50

logikosTJ-: regarding the identity file: http://www.variux.com/sshfs-automount-at-boot-with-fstab-on-ubuntu-14-04/13:03
logikosi used that as an example when setting up my fstab13:03
lotuspsychjeladrua: maybe the #openstack guys know howto?13:03
OerHeksmalex__, oke, see the 1st answer, use the PPA >> http://askubuntu.com/questions/607339/rtl8723be-bluetooth-does-not-work13:03
logikosright or wrong i dont know, but they referenced the private key, i assumed it knows where the public key is as it is the same path just with .pub13:04

ladrualotuspsychje: I think this is autopilot specific..13:04
lotuspsychjeladrua: ok no sweat, just trying to give you more options13:05
TJ-logikos: presumably yes. does the same command work from the command line when run as root/UID 0?13:05
ladrualotuspsychje: thats good, thanks :)13:05
logikosTJ-: the fstab line? .. i did not know you could take that line and execute it as a command13:06
logikosand you cant ...13:07
logikoswhat do i need to prefix it with?13:07
logikosif i do ssh -i /loc/of/identity/file user@remothost13:07
logikosit works fine13:07
logikosand if i fusermount -u to unmount these incorectly mounted items then click on them in thunar they then mount correctly with the current fstab entries13:08
TJ-logikos: "man sshfs"13:08
logikossshfs works13:09
logikosthough i do not pass all those options13:09
TJ-logikos: copy the options as-is; see if you get an error. Run "sudo sshfs ..." to use root in case that makes a difference.13:10
TJ-logikos: at boot-time the shell environment will be different too; so it could be down to something required in the env13:10
ladruais there maybe a channel for OpenStack Autopilot?13:12
TJ-logikos: you need to preceed all those options with "-o "13:13
logikosso replace the ',' 's with ' -o '13:14
TJ-logikos: no, just put "-o " before the list of comma-separated options13:14
logikoswhat about the final 0 013:14
logikostake them off ?13:15
TJ-logikos: yes, they're specific to the fstab fields, not sshfs13:15

logikoson boot it doesnt work but if i fusermount -u it then click it again in thunar13:22
logikosit re executes the fstab mount then works13:22
logikosso it must be the environment as TJ- said13:23
logikosall of these fstab entires worked when i first added them yesterday13:23
logikosi only noticed an issue when i rebooted13:23
logikosafter i added them and then click on the location in thunar they mount and work fine13:23
logikosbut on boot for some reason.. its all messed up13:23
baboon`I had a problem like that, on mounting at boot. It's simply that it tried to mount before the network is up.13:27
TJ-logikos: check in /var/log/auth.log whether thunar is using the complete (options) from the fstab entry. Generally user-session tools will use something like udisks (system<>user-session interface)13:27
logikosTJ-:  you mean /var/log/auth.log on remote system or local?13:32
logikoson local system i dont see anything in there when thunar does the mount13:32

reese_nothing works with ios compatibility anymore XD13:45
iorialogikos, maybe it does not  umount correctly  ....13:45
DJonesjophish: Doesn't look like you can, While the minimal iso image is handy, it isn't useful for installing on UEFI-based systems that you want to run in UEFI mode. The mini iso lacks the proper files for booting the computer in UEFI mode. Thus, the computer will boot in BIOS compatibility mode, and the installation will be in BIOS mode.13:46
DJonesjophish: Thats from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD13:46
jophishyeah, I read that. I was hoping someone in the channel had a solution :)13:46

hateballhilkert: It could be the wifi chipset you're using does not work with the kernel in trusty. You have a few options to test it14:26
hateballhilkert: one is to "sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-wily" which installs the kernel from 15.10. You can then reboot and try that14:27

mrkiei just did a fresh ubuntu installation, when i did the installation i did enter the user mark (so it's the superuser), now i installed apache and only root can write to /var/www/html, is that normal?16:28
bonzibuddymrkie yep thats the default16:28
bonzibuddymrkie for better or worse ;)16:28
icansmellyou_mrkie, yes that is normal16:28
BoingI finally got the Windows.. to be shut down, but it was NOT in hibernate16:29
BoingAnd, looking from Ubuntu at windows, the Ubunto saying my NTFS is not mounted16:29
icansmellyou_Boing, your running ubuntu and windows? is that correct?16:30
OerHekspatch is out, please update http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/2016/CVE-2016-0728.html16:30

icansmellyou_is the ubuntu a fresh install?16:30
mrkieicansmellyou_/bonzibuddy/others: it hasnt to do that when i did the install i entered / as being a mount point?16:30
bonzibuddymrkie: nope - thats just the way ubuntu sets it up by default16:31
Boingfrom the image downloaded burnt to disk then run from disk, and installed by the on disk16:31
mrkiecan't remember it was like that before16:31
bonzibuddymrkie: other distros will do it differently16:31
icansmellyou_i would try to remove grub and ubuntu and reinstall. you need to be careful when removing grub though because it can jack up windows if it is done wrong.16:32
BoingFresh?  I have installed other stuff, and have data16:32

kuru@nicomachus - it may be related to jenkins server that us shutting down16:52
nicomachuskuru: check for suspicious processes in htop, and perhaps check for rootkits with chkrootkit. That does sound somewhat suspicious.16:53
nicomachusbulletxt: 12.04 should be on kernel 3.2, which is unaffected. You can check your kernel number with uname -a. that security hole only affects kernels 3.8 and higher.16:54
bulletxtnicomachus:  ? ubuntu 12.04 is on 3.1316:55

someone235Hi, I want to reinstall ubuntu because of an accident, I read that I can reinstall without deleting my /home. But I run the live-usb I see this message: "This computer currently has no detected operating systems. What would you like to do?" Someone know how to deal with this?16:59
bonzibuddysomeone235 that generally only works if /home was specified as a separate partition to my knowledge17:00
bonzibuddysomeone235 what was the accident? hard drive problem17:00
rwwbulletxt: not sure, looking into it more17:00
nicomachusbulletxt: I did just pull the upgrade to 3.13.0-76 on my 14.04 machine. so they've patched the 3.13 kernel where needed.17:01
someone235bonzibuddy, I've chown -R /usr to current user17:01
bulletxtnicomachus: ok but not on 12.0417:01
nicomachusbulletxt: I can't speak to that, don't have any 12.04 machines at my disposal.17:02
bonzibuddysomeone235: did you put /home on its own partition during install?17:02
bulletxtrww:  should I post on that launchpad link you provided and ask there?17:02
rwwbulletxt: the default kernel for 12.04 is 3.2. are you using one of the linux-lts-* packages?17:03
Ghosty11 Just installed ubuntu on my asus laptop. worked fine.  updated everything then restarted. it wouldn't restart properly and I had to hold the power . Now the wireless won't detect anything.  Restarting network manager just hangs17:03
rwwbulletxt: oh, nicomachus covered this already17:03
bulletxtrww:  http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise-updates/kernel-image-3.13.0-74-generic-di17:03
someone235bonzibuddy, I did the default installation. I don't think it does that17:03
arcskyrom1504:how do i do that ? " < rom1504> arcsky: did you create the tun0 interface ?"17:03
rwwbulletxt: that's not the actual kernel package. anyway, if you're on 3.13 you're on a hardware enablement kernel, and those should be getting security updates coming down the pipe17:04
nicomachusbulletxt: I'm assuming you did update && dist-upgrade?17:04
bulletxtnicomachus: yes latest kernel is this   http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise-updates/kernel-image-3.13.0-74-generic-di ,17:05
rwwbulletxt: the packaging work on this was started about 3 hours ago and is ongoing, so you might need to wait a little bit :P17:05
rwwbulletxt: that bug report I linked should be updated as it progresses17:05
bulletxtok great, I'll wait tomorrow then and check again17:05
someone235bonzibuddy, So I guess my only choice is to reinstall without keeping /home, right?17:06
hiwknevermind, will just reinstall17:06

This may be a transient network problem. You may want to try again later.

Jamie_1and i am not fully wiping17:34
SchrodingersScatLaice: I've hit the same error, except mine was on the way to 15.04, so that's odd.  You have some options, you can accept unauthenticated packages, but it's less of a mess to just install straight to 15.10 if that's what you want, imo.17:35
nixguyJamie_1: Yeah tell me about it.  can you CTRL-C and try again?  do you have a spare usb stick to format?17:35
SchrodingersScatLaice: I'm actually finishing up a netboot to 15.10 because of that exact problem :^)17:35
Jamie_1nixguy: yes one sec, it should be done it seconds if i start it, its 1gb17:35

nixguyIf name brand, google it, see if it's an option.  If custom built (Gigabyte; MSI; ASUS; EVGA) take a peak inside and see if you can't get the model #, if not, each motherboard must carry an FCC ID by law.  With this, you can Google the ID and find the exact specs.18:12
Jamie_1nixguy: im currently looking for the jumper18:14
nixguyJaime_1: Hmm, unless you have a manual, good luck :D  I'd look for identifying info and Google it first.  Jumpers can be plentiful, but I'll trust you know what you're doing, man.  Best of luck there, and hopefully there *is* a jumper ;)18:17

JustMozzyhey everyone. I am using Ubuntu 15.10 with kernel 4.3 patched by noreeps (github.com/noreeps). Whenever I have high network throughput, my network connections and bluetooth connections drop. they still show that they are connected but nothing is happening. pinging the router also results in a Unreachable Host. Any ideas how I could debug this?19:12
TheAmorphousIf I run a mysqldump as root from /etc/crontab, obviously it creates the file with root as owner.  Is there a proper way to create that file with 777 permissions?19:13
JustMozzyTheAmorphous: why would you want 777 permissions?19:13
MonkeyDustJustMozzy  did it work with 4.2 ?19:14
JustMozzyTheAmorphous: I think you need something like this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8475694/how-to-specify-in-crontab-by-what-user-to-run-script19:14
JustMozzyMonkeyDust: not sure. On my other machine 14.04 kernel 3.? I have a similar problem.19:15
nicomachus15.10 shouldn't be on 4.3 unless you manually installed it19:15
JustMozzynicomachus: yes, I did and patched for surface pro 3 support19:15
TheAmorphousJustMozzy: The file needs to be readable and deletable by other users.  Is there a permission other than 777 I should use?19:16
JustMozzynicomachus: but the patches do not touch networking, afaik19:16
MonkeyDustJustMozzy  sounds complicated then... start from the beginning, when did the issues start; what did you do prior to it and since etc19:16
JustMozzyTheAmorphous: Best way is to have those users in a group and let the group have the permissions19:16

lernerTJ-, I dont know, because im a beginner20:20

lerneryumbox, next time I "ls -l" instead of seeing "root   root    4096 Jan 18 20:49 c844f5a2-ff5f-4b09-a946-cfurueeueue" id like to see "root   root    4096 Jan 18 20:49 unit2"20:22
lernerTJ-, is what I just wrote fake names?20:23
TJ-lerner: yes, since the LUKS metadata doesn't include a 'name' field (only a UUID) you have to fake it by having a udevd rule that matches on the known UUID, and creates a 'fake' name the kernel stores. It's not ideal making it the ID_FS_LABEL since the "FS" infers its a valid file-system20:23
lernerTJ-, "It's not ideal making it the ID_FS_LABEL since the "FS" infers its a valid file-system" < I dont understand that what is in this case the ID_FS_LABEL?20:25
TJ-lerner: imagine it in terms of containers within containers: partition contains LUKS, which contains file-system20:25
TJ-lerner: so ideally you want either 'partition' or 'LUKS/dm-crypt' to have the attribute, since the (unlocked) file-system will have its own valid value20:26
TJ-lerner: udev has ID_PART_ENTRY_NAME for such things, which - if Gnome behaves correctly - should be sufficient20:26
TJ-lerner: but, the article you link to will do the job. Just be aware there may be (rare) regressions for some tools that it confuses.20:27

bob2021TJ- This is bob2017.  I think I finally got everything working.  The key was installing the nvidia drivers not using aptitude, so the nvidia opengl drivers didn't get installed20:32
bob2021tj- that, and an xorg.conf that identifies monitors and devices, but no screens20:32
bob2021so on the theory that i may actually have a working ubuntu installation... anyone have advice on basic apps to install?20:34
lernerTJ-, so it would be better to leave things like they are?20:34
TJ-bob2021: that sounds correct. aptitude probably pulls in packages for recommends and even suggests.20:35
TJ-lerner: If you find it better to give those partitions labels then go ahead, I'm just making you aware there may be some - rare - unexpected side-effects with some tools. As long as you keep that in mind if you get weird behaviour, you should be fine20:36
bramgnbob2021: what will the computer be used for?20:37
bob2021TJ- its not the recommends or suggests, its just that the only version of its binaries that nvidia makes available that way forces opengl and mucks around with drivers20:37
bob2021bramgn:  deep learning, in particular using the fbcunn extensions.  but its also my main machine, so i want to be able to do stuff while the nets are training20:37
lernerTJ-, will labelling partitions affect the information stored in the unit? do I need to label before copying files?20:37
bramgnbob2021: what did you use before?20:37
TJ-bob2021: is it the nvidia-<VERSION> depends on "xorg-video-abi-*" then?20:38
bob2021is ubuntu always going to ask me to authenticate so it can change my own user data every 3 seconds?20:39
TJ-lerner: no, it won't affect anything on-disk. If you follow that article you're creating a boot-time userspace device manager (udev) rule that will label the partition *in-memory* but that won't be retained on-disk - each boot it will be re-created20:39

bob2021TJ-  I think its actually the nvidia_352, but i'm not positive.  nvidia insists on a lot of packages at the same time.20:39
TJ-bob2021: makes sense for the common use-case of the driver20:40
bob2021TJ- And its a pain in the ass.  I may have to send them a strongly-worded email.20:40
bob2021TJ- Sure, but they also want developers...  I mean, at this point, deep learning has the be the majority of Nvidia's income20:40

docmurI have a situation where i need to give a box with Ubuntu Server installed to a client.  I'll hold the an admin account and they get a user account.  The box is terminal only and my company stores an appication they will use on it.  The problem is that I want to prevent any possiblity of them mounting the drive live a LIVE session and changing the admin password. Is there a way to do this, possibly with ful20:46
docmurl disk encryption and assure they can't get in?20:46
tgm4883docmur: full disk encryption would do it, but then you'd need access in order to boot the box20:46
docmurright and that's what I was thinking, so is there a way to store a key for the encryption that they can't access, kind of like a once time use USB device that is read only?20:47
tgm4883docmur: I don't believe so, but IDK20:48
freeone3000docmur: If they can't access the key, how do they use it to boot the box?20:48
docmurI've considered making my own hardware key, which could do this, paired with a kernel module, if I have to, but was hoping there's another wya20:48
docmurwell the key could be read by the kernel but no mounted seperatly to extract the key file20:49
lernerTJ-, hope this is the last question. I do have to cd to the udev directory, find an udev file and edit it, is that so?20:49
tgm4883freeone3000: well I think his question was, is there a way to make add a one time use decryption key20:49
freeone3000tgm4883: TPM should do it, if you're on Intel.20:49

docmurbut if I could, that would be awesome!20:55
freeone3000Fhhbv: Okay. So your problem is you uninstalled the network manager from Ubuntu, and you lost internet as a result. have you tried reinstalling the network manager?20:55
bonzibuddydocmur: don't encrypt the whole box, just encrypt like /opt/docmurco/app or w/e your application is20:55
freeone3000docmur: If it's an encrypted partition instead of a volume, you have to specify the key at mount time, not boot time.20:55

ballmeri've had random video issues with mate and unity, they were fixed by installing gnome 3, which i never liked before, but it isn't that bad now22:06

mozaYou mean, like blocking or opening ports?22:47
nicomachus!ufw | moza22:47
ubottumoza: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | GUI frontends such as gufw and ufw-kde also exist. | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo22:47

RansomTimeI like quassel myself for IRC - IRC clients are personal preference I feel22:48

Guest59229nicomachus, i had no idea. why is it still in repos? I will switch tho.,.thanks.22:52
mozaEriC^^ : fail2ban doesn't ring any bell. I don't remember changing iptables rules.22:53
mozaBut the machines are within a university network that I don't control.22:53

nicomachusGuest59229: not sure why it's still in the repos, but it's abandoned since 2012: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XChat22:54
EriC^^moza: try sudo iptables -L22:55
mozabramgn : yes.22:55
bramgnmoza: do you remember what you changed with iptables?22:56
mozaI only have "ACCEPT" rules in iptables22:57
bramgnmoza: what message do you get when you "ssh server2"? Timeout or connection refused?22:57

mozaI have three chains, all of them with default policy accept22:58
mozano specific rule added.22:58
mozabramgn : they are both on my university network. I'm using a tunnel to connect to both of them, I'll try the ssh from one to the other, that's a good idea :)22:59
mozabramgn : Yay! that worked22:59
mozaI'm unsure how or why, but it worked ...23:00
bramgnmoza: ok, great23:00
mozaAny idea to what might be the cause?23:00
bramgnmoza: well, for starters, check IP address you're trying to connect to with the actual configured IP on the server23:01
mozabramgn : I didn't configure a specific IP on that server23:02
mozabecause I wasn't given one23:02
bramgnmoza: what instructions did you get?23:03
mozaI just got given an access to a console to it via an admin tool23:04
bramgnmoza: but you used an address to connect to both servers, right? Like an IP address, or a hostname23:04
mozaand I can ssh to it with the domain name23:04
Guest2Is it any linux i can download and install of a smartphone ?23:04
mozaa hostname23:04
mozanot an ip23:04
ddybingGuest2: Do you mean install it FROM a smartphone, or TO a smartphone?23:05
mozasomething that gets resolved later on to an IP (or in the case of the admin tool, it was just a shortened name, not an IP nor the full name.23:05
k1l_Guest2: #ubuntu-touch for that23:05
Guest2ddybing: I like to install it on a smartphone.23:05
bramgnmoza: looks like the hostname doesn't resolve or perhaps resolves to wrong IP from that console23:06
ddybingOkay. I would join the channel #ubuntu-touch, as kil_ suggested23:06

bramgnmoza: the one from the admin tool, if i understood correctly23:08
mozaok, I'll have to try that when I'm at my office23:08
mozaor i can try that while i'm logged in right now on that machine (via tunnel via ssh on server1 and then ssh on server2...)23:09
Zulu_TooMoza tunneliing is great with SSH. It is the only way now. Privacy is so important.23:11
Guest2Is Ubuntu touch for all smartphones and is it easy like to install linux on a computer ? Tought it was ubuntu phone.23:11
mozaok, thanks bramgn, now I got server2's IP adress, as given by host :)23:12
xanguaGuest2: no and no23:12
Guest2Hope it will be in the future. So i dont have to sign up for a gmail.23:12
xanguaYou can use Android without Google23:13
Zulu_TooYou don't need gmail. Set up your own server and bypass the hooplahh.23:13
Guest2xanga. yes but i dont get the updates and new apps.23:13
k1l_Guest2: if someone did make a port of ubuntu-touch for your device already it should be easy to install. but that is the topic for #ubuntu-touch23:13
xanguaYou just basically have to install a custom Rom and use only open source alternatives23:13
mozaok. The IP adress returned by host from the machine itself doesn't seem to answer to ping (timeout) from my home computer.23:15
mozathat ip adress answers perfectly to ping from server1.23:16
bramgnmoza: you're using a VPN to connect to the university network, right?23:19
mozabramgn : yes23:19
mozabramgn : ok, my vpn seemed to have stopped working. Apparently one server is accessible without the vpn and the other is not. Let's try again while checking the vpn is up and running23:21
bramgnmoza: could it be that you're accessing server 1 on a public IP and server 2 on a private IP? (192.168.x./10.x.x.x/..)23:22
mozaIt doesn't seem that way, but I need to check the masks to be sure23:22
mozaThey both start the same (x.x.y.y => the x are the same)23:23
Zulu_TooMoza make sure the Hostname is not identical. That could be a problem.23:23
bramgnmoza: and you said that without VPN you can still access server1?23:24
mozabramgn : yes23:24
mozaand from it then access server2....23:24
mozaZulu_Too : i do need to check how I've configured the hostname23:25
mozaon server223:25
bramgnmoza: okay, well, i suggest to check with the network folks at your uni at the situation23:25
Zulu_TooMoza many Webmasters use the same code and forget that the hostname is very important on a network. Conflicts take over.23:28
mozabramgn and all : thank you for helping me. I feel a bit better bothering them after having tried to see if i didn't make errors on my own.23:29
bramgnmoza: :) good luck23:29
mozaThanks. :)23:29
mozaSo 1) check hostname 2) talk to uni. And I managed to do the night-time reboot without having to schedule daytime downtime :D Yay! Thanks a lot !23:30

Zulu_TooMy deepest thanks is to K1I for his input. Give that man another beer.23:36
nicomachuswhy would you decide on lubuntu for a server? why not ubuntu server?23:39
Zulu_TooHey guys, if you all want a faster internet connection, Motorola has a Surfboard MODEM with DOCSIS SB6141. Buy it. It has the capabilities to up and download 300 mb/s. It is  a great MODEM. Service IP's don't like it but the hell with them.23:40

AVeryLostSoulHmm... I suppose the better questino would be does anyone know how to boot a usb from grub23:54
nicomachusAVeryLostSoul: you don't use Grub to boot a USB, you use your system's BIOS23:54
NoobsterMCTorvaldoes anyone know if there is a setting that  automatically moves applications to the desktop after installation? thanks23:54

tewardAVeryLostSoul: BIOS is firmware, it loads long before Grub, loads all the basic hardware, etc.23:55
tewardAVeryLostSoul: Grub is a bootloader, and is only loaded at boot time LONG after BIOS checks are completed23:56
AVeryLostSoulAh, I see... Well, I'll go back to my original question, how can I boot from a usb?23:56
BiilD73AVeryLostSoulwhen you boot the system you should see an option for boot options (del/esc/f12 etc) which give you other medium then installed hdd i.e cd/dvd/usb23:56
NoobsterMCTorvalkll_ sometimes applications do that in windows after they are done installing23:57
BiilD73AVeryLostSoulobviously the bios should support booting from a USB stick that you would have writtend a bootable image to23:58
