artoisMrKeuner: now I haven't personally tried to use Unix software to make one of those cute PDFs with the scan in the background and invisible digital OCR'd text on top, but I'm sure you can do that as well00:00
artoisMrKeuner: tesseract is one that does the OCR, I'm not sure what peripheral features it has00:00
jegarciaEriC^^: i think i didin't explain myself well enough00:00
artoismost Unix apps that do OCR are very Unixy indeed and do only the single job of OCR'ing an image00:00

SeminarianCairo-dock works fine in unity.. When I do metacity --replace there's a big transparent bar covering pieces of the windows . So pieces of my desktop kinda overlap my (f.e.) firefox window.. Any ideas on how I can fix this behaviour?00:12
MrKeunerartois, can you suggest a tool that does --input=Foo.pdf --output=OCRedFoo.pdf00:15
artoisMrKeuner: this looks real promising: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pypdfocr00:17
Rachael_EriC^^, ok boot is now hanging at started update utmp about system runlevel changes00:29

Rachael_EriC^^, I tried with and without the options on post 4 of this link http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=216431300:31
Rachael_EriC^^, i'm contemplating a fresh install :(00:31
artoisMrKeuner: aha00:33
artoisMrKeuner: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=pdfsandwich&searchon=names&suite=all&section=all00:33
MrKeunerartois, thanks I'll try pypdfocr00:35
MrKeunertrusty here00:35
EriC^^Rachael_: if you don't have a lot of info a fresh install is probably better00:37
artoisMrKeuner: anyway, looks like pdfsandwich for the long term, possibly; not that a python app won't work & last for ages, most likely00:37
EriC^^Rachael_: you could always back up your stuff in /home and the list of installed apps by apt-get and backup to your other hdd and fresh install and resore00:37
MrKeunerartois, I'll give it a chance after upgrading to latest LTS00:38
polcukEriC^^: if only backups were easy.00:38
Rachael_EriC^^, just checked I have a backup from Thursday, how do I list the installed apps?00:38
Rachael_EriC^^, thankx heaps for your help with this00:38
artoisbot used to have a clone factoidlet00:38
MrKeunerartois, do you think that package might work on Trusty?00:38
artoisMrKeuner: easy way to find out00:39
artoisMrKeuner: download it and dpkg -i it00:39
EriC^^Rachael_: it's a mouthful00:39
artoislet's see what it's writ in ...00:39
polcukThey should update the distros daily. So on first install. You don't spend hours upgrading.00:39
MrKeuneryes, I'll try00:39

SuperLagIf I've got a system with 64GB of RAM, do I really need 1x swap?00:39
artoisMrKeuner: the python one should almost certainly, of course; checking pdfsandwich00:40
EriC^^Rachael_: you can redirect it to a file with comm -23 .......... > /path/to/file and then copy it to your other hdd00:40
artoisSuperLag: not really, unless you want to theoretically hibernate 64 solid gigs of information00:40
Rachael_EriC^^,  sweet, can I run that from this OS?00:40
EriC^^Rachael_: no, you have to chroot into the install00:40
polcukSuperLag: you would think distros would have swap inside the root partition. It's year 2016 already00:40
artoisSuperLag: you could probably eliminate swap entirely, just deal with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swappiness etc. if you do00:40
artoispolcuk: isn't it an install time option for Ubuntu?00:41
* artois doesn't recall00:41
Rachael_EriC^^, apologies chroot?00:41
k1lSuperLag: do you want to hibernate?00:41
artoisit's useful to have the potentially expendable swap partition space, though00:41
polcukSuperLag: an auto size one to. That shrinks.00:41
EriC^^Rachael_: sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt , then sudo chroot /mnt00:41
k1lpolcuk: you can use a swapfile. since ages00:41
artoispolcuk: just isn't much gain over a dedicated partition, really00:41
polcukartois: it can be done. Not sure if it's an install option.00:42
polcukk1l: make it a default install00:42
MrKeunerartois, dpki -i is a bad choice but gdebi installs it with all the dependencies taken from trusty repo00:43
MrKeunerartois, so it is installed!00:43
Rachael_EriC^^, excellent, tried the comm -23 returned error comm: /dev/fd/63: No such file or directory00:43
k1lpolcuk: that attitude gets the Foss hammer: make it yourself, its open source :)00:43
EriC^^Rachael_: oh, type exit00:43
polcukSuperLag: nah.00:43
EriC^^then type "  for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done  "00:44
Jakey3when i try to connect to a vpn i get the following error00:44

Jakey3how do i resolve this issue00:44
Seminarianso i'm mounting a windows 8.1 iso with furius iso mount tool. All that's in the mount destination is a readme.txt with following content "This disc contains a "UDF" file system and requires an operating system00:44

neonixcoderhay guys.. HISTIGNORE variable is not working in Ubuntu.00:45
neonixcoderBelow is the command I am using.00:45
neonixcoderexport HISTIGNORE='ls:history:pwd:p:w1:r1:su root:man'00:46
neonixcoderBut I can still see those commands in my history command output00:46
neonixcoderAny thoughts?00:46
k1lSuperLag: you dont need a swap if you have that plenty and know you wont use that much swap. like when you dont use hibternation00:46
SuperLagk1l: yeah, this isn't a laptop00:47
Rachael_EriC^^, i've chroot back onto the drive, ran the code, and recieve a list of apps, is this list saved?00:48
artoisMrKeuner: not sure how it's a bad choice, but gj anyway00:49
EriC^^Rachael_: no, you have to add > /path/to/file at the end of it to save it00:50
brainwashneonixcoder: it works fine here. maybe check "echo $HISTIGNORE"00:52
MrKeunerartois, sorry didn't want to blame. dpkg -i doesn't install the package as there is dependencies. dpkg cannot resolve them automatically. gdebi does, that's what I wanted to say00:52
Jakey3when i connect to my openvpn from an ubuntu machine i get the following error. Can't find host 2.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org: Name or service not known (-2), any idea, it connects but no access to the internet00:53

MrKeunerartois, yes it is. Thank you!00:57
EriC^^Rachael_: save it to /tmp/installedapps00:59
EriC^^Rachael_: then exit the chroot, and type sudo cp /mnt/tmp/installedapps /installedapps00:59
EriC^^then type cat /installedapps to see if it worked01:00
Rachael_EriC^^, thnkx again! now to decide it it's worth installing 15.10 or go back to 14.04, any thoughts01:01
EriC^^Rachael_: hmm install 14.04 and then upgrade straight to 16.04 later or fresh install it when it comes out01:03

artoisMrKeuner: what, the output the term produces?01:12
C_minusdid you get CUDA working? did you use the .run installer or .deb package? for me the .deb approach results in nothing getting installed, but the .run forces me to install a driver that causes a mess every kernel update.01:13
brainwashneonixcoder: just want to make sure: the commands in HISTIGNORE will still appear in the history, but they won't be appended anymore once HISTIGNORE is set01:13
brainwashneonixcoder: is this the case? if yes, then it's working fine.01:14
cfhowlettC_minus, I did not install cuda.  seems it came from the nvidia driver package01:14

duderino416toAny PAM gurus on right now? Trying to figure out how to issue sudo once SSHd into a machine that only uses PAM USB for authentication with Unix Authentication turned off. Have setup SSH key and it allows login, but PAM is doing remote authentication for every sudo call. I have the key and hands access to local machine. NOPASSWD in sudoers not an option as it skips sudo authentication when being used locally.01:47

duderino416tomices im all out of ideas here. especially since i can't see what the artifacts are that you are experiencing02:21

owen1i have ubuntu 15.04 and i try to reinstall ubuntu 15.10. i choose encryption and lvm and enter a security key. then i see: 'configuration of encrypted volumes failed" "an error occured while configuring encrypted voluems" any clues?03:33
lotuspsychjeowen vivid is eol03:33
owen1lotuspsychje: that's why i try to install 15.1003:34
k1lowen1: you can make the online upgrade from 15.04 to 15.1003:35
owen1k1l: great idea. what are the terminal commands that do that?03:35
k1lowen1: "sudo do-release-upgrade"03:36
owen1i always like to do fresh install ):03:36
raphuswhats ur hardware owen103:36
owen1x1 carbon gen103:36
owen1i canceled the install and i can't even reboot now. i see blinking line on the top left.03:38
raphusformat ur harddrive03:40
lotuspsychjeowen1: did you disable fastboot and secureboot?03:40
owen1lotuspsychje: i didn't modify anything.03:40
owen1i could not continue with the install due to some error. so the advice i got is to upgrade from the command line.03:41
raphusis there any sensible or personal data on ur harddrive u wish to recover?03:41
owen1than i tried to reboot (without the usb)03:41
owen1raphus: nope03:41

owen1i just wanted to reinstall ubuntu. i had encryption before so i wanted encryption now as well.03:42

lotuspsychjeowen1: you can try the recoverymode03:43
owen1lotuspsychje: great. how?03:43
owen1i entered the boot menu03:44
lotuspsychjeowen1: but keep in mind that 15.04 is end of life, so recoverymode probably wont do any good03:44

lotuspsychjegreenie2016: are you trying to install ubuntu?03:49
greenie2016Yes, currently I have Ubuntu on desktop but too slow on 512 memory. Read that I can swhich to a Lubuntu desktop so I did (which is on top of Ubuntu. Computer SO SLOW. Want to install Lubuntu.03:51
cfhowlettno need to reinstall! greenie201603:52

lotuspsychjegreenie2016: how did you create your usb stick mate?03:54
owen1i am trying to save some data in my laptop. i can't access my laptop unless i put the install usb. when i do that i chose 'try ubuntu without installing it'. than i can see my encrypted drive. but when i try to access my drive (and i type my password) i get: unable to access '240 GB encrypted'. error unlocking /dev/sda5: command-line 'cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda5........no key available with this passphrase.03:55
greenie2016I'd rather install Lubuntu and not fuss with installing ram or buying any new HD's. I'm a newbie LOL!03:55
lotuspsychjeowen1: didnt test this on encrypted, but you could try to chroot into hd with a liveusb perhaps?03:56
lotuspsychje!chroot | owen103:56
ubottuowen1: A chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot03:56
waters33637greenie2016: webmin if it is just going to sit in a corner someplace03:56
k1lgreenie2016: the difference between ubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu is basically just the installed desktop packages. and you can install a different desktop03:57
cfhowlett!webmin | waters33637 greenie201603:57
ubottuwaters33637 greenie2016: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.03:57

waters33637wow .. i didnt know that ...03:57
greenie2016I created a live cd. The 1st OS was XP, wiped that and installed Ubuntu. But was SLOW.03:57
waters33637might want to look into that huh03:57

greenie2016oh, OK cfhowlett.04:01
waters33637greenie2016: yeah .. i dont know what your doing with it .. but ... untill now .. i would have said ... webmin ... is a cool option04:01
micesk1l: that didn't help04:03
greenie2016I already have a live cd lotuspsychje. It's just that I've tried every which way to get bios to get cd at start up. Plenty of people on forums have same issue with IBM ThinkCentre.04:03
greenie2016I for the life of me can't figure out how I got it to work when I first installed Ubuntu about 3 years ago.04:05
owen1i am suspecting that from some reason the live cd changed the boot priority order in my bios. how do i know which option is my built-in HDD? i see the following: ATA HDD0 intel ssdscmmw240a3l, ATA HDD1, ATA HDD2, USB HDD, USB CD, USB FDD, ATAPI CD0, PCI LAN, ATAPI CD1, and ATA HDD3.04:05
lotuspsychjegreenie2016: ESC, DEL, F2, F8, F10 or F12, if you cant enter try ##hardware please04:05
owen1(my issue is i can't boot anymore)04:05
lotuspsychjeowen1: usb hdd as 1st, ata hdd0 as 2nd04:06
greenie2016OK lotuspsychje. Let me try. And will go to ##hardware. Later all! Thanks for help!04:07
owen1lotuspsychje: what HDD as first? ATA HDD1 or USB HDD?04:07
owen1lotuspsychje: i don't want to boot from my usb stick.04:07
lotuspsychjeowen1: you say you cant boot/login into your current ubuntu 15.04 end of life...04:08
ErroGN :)04:09
lotuspsychjeowen1: so why not install 15.10 with boot usb as 1st?04:09
owen1lotuspsychje: i don't know how to install 15.10. the live usb gave me an error. something to do with the disk encryption04:10
owen1lotuspsychje: i am trying to access my encrypted disk to backup something i forgot.04:10
owen1if i fail, i'll try to install again. the problem is i don't know how to overcome the install error i had earlier.04:10
lotuspsychjeowen1: recoverymode or chroot, but if your encrypted password is wrong or so, might be hard04:11
owen1lotuspsychje: how do i enter recovery mode?04:12
lotuspsychjeowen1: we had some recent issues on users that could not get into encrypted hd anymore after an update04:12

owen1i didn't update anything04:12
lotuspsychjeowen1: so your on 15.04 and you dont get updates?04:12
owen1lotuspsychje: i am on 15.04. i created a usb with 15.10. inserted the usb. started the install process. but it failed before starting due to some error with encrypting my drive. i remove the usb and try to log back to my laptop but i see blinking cursor.04:14
owen1i can go to the bios if needed.04:15
owen1i can also connect the usb again and try install or 'try without install' etc.04:15
lotuspsychjeowen1: im not the encrypt expert myself, but i presume you getting error ubuntu trying to recognize your hd or /home and its encrypted04:16
owen1when i tried 'try without install' i couldn't access my encrypted drive which is sad since i wanted to backup something.04:16
lotuspsychjeowen1: you can try the 'try live' and then chroot04:16
owen1lotuspsychje: ok. i'll start with 'try live'04:16
lotuspsychjeowen1: read the chroot url i triggered you earlier04:16
owen1thanks a lot04:16
owen1doing it  now04:16
owen1i see 'try ubuntu without installing' twice. why?04:17
owen1which one should i chose?04:17
cfhowlettthat ain't right, owen104:17
owen1i just picked 'boot from first drive' or something similar04:17
owen1let's see what happend04:17
owen1no init found04:18
owen1(after i hit alt+ctrl+f7)04:18
lotuspsychjeowen1: maybe next ubuntu install, try without encryption and make several backups before you go to the next...04:19
braderharthello all. cross-posting from #nvidia. can someone please assist me in getting the nvidia propietary drivers working correctly in linux? nouvea works fine but i'm having an issue with the proprietary driver detecting my screens correctly on a 660m for my lenovo y58004:23
lotuspsychjebraderhart: wich nvidia- version did you try?04:23
owen1lotuspsychje: i am in a terminal using 'live cd'. should i follow 'Creating a chroot' section?04:24
lotuspsychje!chroot | owen104:24
ubottuowen1: A chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot04:24
lotuspsychjeowen1: but keep in mind, i dint test this myself on encrypted, not sure this will work..04:24
owen1lotuspsychje: oh.04:24
braderhartlotuspsychje: ty for responding. i've tried multiple but lately i've been trying https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa04:25
owen1i don't understand that page so i think it will be a waste of time for me. is it possible to reinstall ubuntu or upgrade to 15.10 from the live cd?04:25
braderhartlotuspsychje: 352.79-0ubuntu0~gpu15.10.104:25
owen1(i mean from the terminal)04:25
lotuspsychjebraderhart: hmm i suggest you try ubuntu drivers first, showing at your additional drivers section04:25
braderhartlotuspsychje: i believe that is the latest stable04:25
owen1lotuspsychje: i am in 'try ubuntu without install'04:26
braderhartlotuspsychje: i can certainly try although i've tried those before as well and same issue04:26
lotuspsychjebraderhart: 352 giveing you black screen?04:26
micesgenerally speaking does ubuntu support mobile cpu's?04:27
lotuspsychjeowen1: reinstall fresh is always possible, but to recover your data might get you troubles on encrypted04:27
micesi don't mean arm04:27
lotuspsychjemices: ask your real question mate?04:27
owen1lotuspsychje: i don't mind loosing it.04:27
owen1lotuspsychje: how to fresh install?04:28
owen1i tried already with the live cd and got error with my encrypted drive.04:28
owen1so i am a bit lost04:28
micesi guess you could say i made a mistake maybe, buying a laptop with a mobile cpu04:28
lotuspsychjemices: why?04:28
owen1lotuspsychje: is it possible to fresh install after hitting 'try without install'?04:28
micesany linux distro i toss in the usb slot and boot the display is messed up04:28
owen1lotuspsychje: i have the terminal open inside 'live cd'04:29
lotuspsychjeowen1: how about you try a 14.04 live?04:29
braderhartlotuspsychje: no, just can't get nvidia-settings to detect my screens. get x screen 0 (no scanout)04:29
owen1downgrade from 15.04 to 14.04?04:29
braderhartlotuspsychje: i've tried multiple versions of this driver including the one from the default repo for additional drivers04:29
lotuspsychjeowen1: no, try 14.04 fresh like you trying now04:29
miceslotuspsychje: i'm sorry, i didn't mean the operating system i only meant the gui04:29
lotuspsychjebraderhart: try a lower nvidia version04:30
owen1lotuspsychje: what is the purpose of trying 14.04?04:30
lotuspsychjebraderhart: can you tell me wich driver versions showup on your additional drivers screen?04:30
lotuspsychjeowen1: to maybe bypass your error at setup04:30
miceseven the latest mageia04:31
owen1lotuspsychje: another option is to try installing without encryption04:31
lotuspsychjeowen1: another possible scenario is booting into a datarecovery cd and wipe your hd after, to be able to properly install ubuntu04:31

braderhartlotuspsychje: i can certainly try. any reason in which you suggest a lower version? so right now i see nvidia-361 (open source), nvidia-352 (open source), and nvidia-352-updates proprietary. i can remove the ppa i added and use the defaults but as noted i am am experiencing the same issue regardless04:32
braderhartright now i'm using version 352.7904:32
lotuspsychjebraderhart: you could try 352 updates04:33

cfhowlettcolaro, that helps.  OK, reboot.  at the grub screen, hit <esc> (I think) to trigger the grub edit mode.  then:  From the Grub boot menu editor (i.e. the menu that shows up while your machine is booting), you can try to comment the "load_video" line.04:43

lotuspsychjebraderhart: no, xorg doesnt need any tweaking these days05:19
braderhartlotuspsychje: what should i check for in logs... the nvidia site says it has optimus05:20
lotuspsychjebraderhart: if you really tested all nvidia-drivers, try to file a bug against05:20
lotuspsychjebraderhart: i would suggest remove all ppa's and try every default driver from additional drivers05:20
braderhartlotuspsychje: fair enough. probably would be the correct way to get support. was just hoping someone here couple help fix and then i can submit the bug report, solution and possible patch05:21
lotuspsychjebraderhart: if that doesnt work= bug and try a 16.04 just to test out kernel 4.4, see what it does there05:21
lotuspsychjebraderhart: no patch for grafix drivers, they work good or not05:21
braderhartlotuspsychje: i don't think the issue is with the drivers themselves, but instead the debian package not applying something to the quirks file or whatever else needs to be done05:22
lotuspsychjedebian package?05:22

braderhartlotuspsychje: yes the .deb package that they wrap the drivers in. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Quirks05:23
lotuspsychjebraderhart: no nvidia-340 or 346 showup your list?05:25
braderhartlotuspsychje: yes, and i will try the lowest driver version to see if it is working there. i'm just surprised that it isn't working on the latest stable releases. it is listed in the newer drivers on nvidia's site05:26
braderhartlotuspsychje: i really want to play some xcom 2 :-P05:26
lotuspsychjebraderhart: we having issues on latest nvidia drivers05:27

braderhartfair, but i don't think that is fair to say that we are having issues. i've browsed the forums and mailing list extensively and could not find a lot of information nor an associated bug reports.05:29
lotuspsychjebraderhart: i would surely try a xenial dialy05:29
braderhartlotuspsychje: thank you05:30
lotuspsychjebraderhart: also when installing ubuntu, plug in cable internet + updates during setup to get you best drivers available05:30
lotuspsychjebraderhart: try all drivers default first without ppa's to test vanilla05:30
braderhartlotuspsychje: thanks. tbh i'm past that. i'm just trying to get some help in terms of troubleshooting once i've tried everything else.05:31
lotuspsychjebraderhart: thats why i suggest a 16.04 test, to see if its a kernel thing or not05:32

swenzeltoo many differences oO10:54
alkisgIn the names? Or in the sizes?10:54
alkisgswenzel: try this: lsmod | awk '{print $1}' | sort10:55
swenzelsize is the same as far as I can tell... but it seems as their entries are ordered differently...10:55
alkisgThis only keeps the module name, not the size10:55
alkisgOr, cat lsmod-output.1 | awk '{print $1}' | sort10:55
alkisgif you already have the lsmod output10:55
alkisgOr something like this to save it: lsmod | awk '{print $1}' | sort > /tmp/lsmod-output.110:56
swenzelalkisg, after the sort git diff shows nothing... so they're identical T.T10:57

alkisgswenzel: which kernel do you have? uname -a11:17
alkisgIs that 15.10?11:18
alkisgDid you try with a different version/kernel?11:18
swenzelwell the problem started with one of the last versions... but I cannot pin down which one since it's far from obvious when it works and when it doesn't11:19
alkisgYou can try with a newer kernel from the kernel mainline ppa and see if it fixes the issue11:20
alkisgGoogle for how to install newer kernels11:20
ikoniarandomly swapping kernels without understanding the problem is not a good idea11:21
alkisgIt's the essense of bisecting11:21
ikoniait's not11:22
swenzelyeah... just I have no reliable way of testing whether the problem exists or not11:22
ikoniarandomly putting PPA kernels on with no reason - is not good11:22
alkisgThere is a reason, no sound11:22
ikoniaalkisg: what's the problem with it11:22
alkisgAnd it's verifiable, even if it takes a few days to see if it works or not11:22
ikoniano - it's not11:23
alkisgIf he doesn't test, we can't know11:23
cfhowlettswenzel, did you *ever* have sound?11:23
ikonia randomly dumping external kernels on is not a good move, unless you have a reason to think you understand where the problem is and see a fix in it11:23
alkisgWell, it worked for me fine for the last 10+ kernel regressions I had...11:23
cfhowlettswenzel, did you have sound on your current version of ubuntu?  15.10 I assume?11:24
alkisgE.g. with 4.3 on trusty I had ext4 failures, which were fixed on 4.4, so I didn't have to bisect, I just downloaded the mainline ppa as instructed by the devs at #ubuntu-kernel11:24
alkisg*on xenial11:24
swenzelcfhowlett, yes I did... I think it started somehwere between 4.2.0-21 and the current one11:24
cfhowlettswenzel, kernel upgrade do not generally frag low level functions like sound.  before you install new kernels, I suggest you 1.  go through your sound settings to verify you did not inadvertently silence or misdirect output and 2. boot an earlier, working kernel to verify sound functionality there11:26
swenzelcfhowlett, It's not that I never have sound... my problem is that it comes and goes11:27
swenzelnot at all11:27
ardianHello I have the following situation with a LAMP server, I need it to be in the www-data group but also be able to edit from a normal user11:27
ikoniaswenzel: why do you think this is kernel related ?11:27
cfhowletttry alternate output options -- headphones or different speakers11:28
ikoniaalkisg: put the users in the www-data group11:28
ardianeither it's working from www-data or from the user, but I can't get it to work for both11:28
alkisgikonia: that was me, I think it's kernel related. I've seen sound, video, file system, mouse, keyboard and acpi regressions in the last couple of years, to name a few. I'm only mentioning those that were solved with older or newer kernels.11:28
swenzelcfhowlett, problem is only with my onboard card11:28
ardianikonia, I have it sysuer:www-data /var/www11:28
alkisgikonia: I think you meant "ardian" there, with the www-data group.11:28
swenzelikonia, in fact I don't know if it's kernel related11:28
ikoniaalkisg: so you have zero reason to actually think it's a kernal problem11:28
cfhowlettswenzel, and are you certain the card itself is not failing?  they do, you know ...11:28
ikoniaalkisg: oops, I did, good spot11:29
alkisgikonia: other than experience, yes, it's just a hunch11:29
alkisgAnd it doesn't take a long time to test that way11:29
ardianikonia, but I can't seem to get wordpress install themes automatically for dir permissions11:29
k1l_ardian: make it www-data:www-data again and put your user into tha www-data group11:29
ikoniaalkisg: so you've not debugged it at all - just assumed a kernel11:29
ardiank1l_, let me try11:29
alkisgikonia: did you read the debugging info above? That was all though, not extensive debugging.11:29
ikoniaalkisg: no, I've not seen it, hence why I'm asking11:30
alkisgI asked him to compare the lsmod output of a working and not working situation11:30
alkisgIt was the same11:30
ikoniaalkisg: as it should be11:30
alkisgThen I asked about dmesg on broken situation, but he could not longer reproduce it11:30
alkisgSo before leaving, I thought I'd tell him my 2 cents from my experience, that it might be kernel related11:31
alkisgI've seen it in a lot of cases to ignore my hunch there11:31
alkisgAnyways, feel free to help him more, gotta go11:31

swenzelcfhowlett, about the card itself... when I start from a startup disk with an older kernel version I've never had problems... same with windows boot11:34
cfhowlettikonia, ?? ^^^ kernel?11:34
ikoniacfhowlett: sorry what, I wasn't paying attention11:34
swenzelcfhowlett, it's not only the kernel that's older... could also be another part of the system11:35
cfhowlettswenzel, what audio card is this?  perhaps a driver issue?11:35
cfhowlettikonia, <swenzel> cfhowlett, about the card itself... when I start from a startup disk with an older kernel version I've never had problems... same with windows boot11:35
lotuspsychjeif someone enables automatic security updates, it wont prompt gui right? download & install on the background?11:36
ditahow to hack wifi friends11:36
k1l_swenzel: what is the output of "uname -a"? what ubuntu are you on?11:36
swenzelAlsaMixer says Card: HDA Intel PCH and Chip: Creative CA013211:36
k1l_dita: that is not a topic for this channel11:36
ardiank1l_, worked perfectly thanks11:36
ikoniacfhowlett: I guess you need to know the "good working start point and move forward from there11:36
cfhowlettdita, we don't support hacking.  ask elsehwere11:36
ikoniaintel sound = great support, so there is no way it's going to be a kernel unless something shows up under more debugging11:37
swenzelk1l_ 15.10 with 4.2.0-2711:37
k1l_swenzel: is "linux-generic" installed?11:37
swenzelk1l_, no it wasn't11:38
k1l_swenzel: ok. so your issues might have come from missing kernel headers which makes your system not able to compile the modules for some hardware drivers.11:38
swenzelk1l_, when does the system compile them?11:39
k1l_in best case when the header files are installed now. or when there is a new kernel update they are compiled for the new kernel.  having "linux-generic" installed makes sure that always the matching kernel header files are installed at the same time as the kernel is11:41
swenzelk1l_, well that was an easy solution then... I'll see in a few days if it worked :D11:42
nobizzleanyone in here who can help me with lvm?11:43
cfhowlett!ask | nobizzle11:43
ubottunobizzle: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience11:43

BluesKajHi all11:48
ardianIs ubuntu supporting PHP7 ? or should I stay with php511:49
Ben64ardian: php7 will be in 16.0411:50
ardianBen64, so if I install from external repositories will there be all the modules that are in php5 now ?11:52
incognito-dgCan I log into a different user in a different workspace?11:52
lotuspsychjeincognito-dg: i think workspaces are bound to the user logged in11:54
lotuspsychjeincognito-dg: you want 2 users active on 2 screens perhaps?11:54
lotuspsychjeardian: its not recommended to add external ppa's, stick to package versions for your ubuntu version11:55
ardianlotuspsychje, alright thank you.11:56
incognito-dglotuspsychje so you can actually do it on different screens? Is there any particular application required to do that?11:56
lotuspsychjeincognito-dg: what is you really wanna do? can you explain a bit11:56
incognito-dglotuspsychje On my computer I have work related projects and I have a non work related project. So I want to put it in a different user for files and google chrome bookmarks.11:58
lotuspsychjeincognito-dg: why not just create 2 users on your system, work/personal?11:59
incognito-dglotuspsychje I know that occasionally I will be working and an idea will come to me for the non work project and I will want to open the other user.11:59
MonkeyDustincognito-dg  i guess Vagrant is what you want11:59
lotuspsychjeincognito-dg: after you created users, its possible ton use gksu line to run stuff from the other user also12:00
incognito-dglotuspsychje Yes I will do that, but I don't want to sign out of one user so I can access the other. If I am in the work user, I want to be able to access the non work project without having to sing out. At times I will want to have both open.12:00
gear4why ?12:01
MonkeyDustgear4  why what?12:01
gear4read paste12:01
MonkeyDustgear4  what's in the paste, i cannot open links12:01
cfhowlettgear4, no context, no reading12:01
cfhowlettalso ... courtesy12:01
incognito-dgMonkeyDust ... that's a good idea.... but I would probly want to use Docker12:01
gear4Lua with apt-get12:02
lotuspsychjeincognito-dg: i used to work with suX before, but gksu can do the same12:02
gear4"debug.getinfo(2, "nlS")" returns nil12:02
MonkeyDustincognito-dg  Docker is going to drop ubuntu, try LXC12:02
gear4so, why ?12:03
gear4I install from source and it works12:03
gear4but not from apt-get12:03
incognito-dgMonkeyDust why the heck is Docker going to drop Ubuntu? That's bad news for me because I'm a web developer and I want to run on linux.12:03
gear4incognito-dg, arch > ubuntu12:03
k1l_they are going to drop ubuntu as standard image. but it will still be available12:03
MonkeyDustincognito-dg  it's not clear http://news.softpedia.com/news/docker-has-no-plans-on-ditching-ubuntu-in-favour-of-alpine-linux-report-500244.shtml12:04
gear4so no answer for me then ?12:05
MonkeyDustgear4  start with a question, in one line, so you can easily repeat it12:06
cfhowlett!patience | gear412:06
ubottugear4: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/12:06
k1l_please dont read softpedia. that got just bad informed articles.12:06
gear4cfhowlett, I have patience12:06
cfhowlettgear4, you waited 2 minutes and asked for an answer.  patience --- not so much12:07
ikoniagear4: explain the problem12:07
gear4ikonia, I did, above12:07
ikoniagear4: you've done a paste with no context, what version of ubuntu, what problem, what's your thoughts/opinion, what help are you looking for12:07
ikoniagear4: I've not seen it - I've just seen a paste with no context12:07
gear4it's supposed to be #ubuntu, explaining why stuff doesn't work with apt-get should be a de facto standard12:07
MonkeyDustgear4  what brings you here, it's not clear12:07
ikoniagear4: drop tehe attitude, explain the problem you see and we can try to help12:08
ikoniagear4: what are you trying to install, what version of ubuntu, what's the issue, any additional info12:08
gear4debug.getinfo(2, "nlS") doesn't work with LuaJit installed from apt-get 15.10 but does from source12:08
gear4that's all I can say from any logs12:08
k1l_gear4: drop that attitude asap. this is volunteers helping you. so either you pay someone to be nice to you when you act like that or you change your behaviour12:08
ikoniagear4: ok - so you've install luajit yes ?12:08
incognito-dgMonkeyDust You scared me for a minute there, but after reading that article it seems they won't be dropping Ubuntu. I don't see how they could drop ubuntu. In the linux world ubuntu is one of the leaders for web developers and there are many very popular distros such as Mint based on ubuntu.12:08
MonkeyDustgear4  and where/when do you get that, what are you doing12:08
gear4ikonia, yes, thrice, from apt-get, source and apt-get again12:09
ikonia!info luijet12:09
ubottuPackage luijet does not exist in wily12:09
ikoniagear4: what's the name of the package you installed (exact name please)12:09
gear4MonkeyDust, what do you mean where/when ? on a server, right now12:09
incognito-dggear4 arch is definitely a distro I want to dive into12:09
gear4ikonia, luajit12:09
ikoniagear4: what repo did that come from ?12:09
gear4incognito-dg, it's my main, much better than ubuntu12:09
k1l_incognito-dg: they will base their standard image on alpine linux instead of ubuntu. but ubuntu will still be available on docker. so move on please.12:09
MonkeyDust!info luajit12:09
ubottuluajit (source: luajit): Just in time compiler for Lua programming language version 5.1. In component universe, is optional. Version 2.0.4+dfsg-1 (wily), package size 208 kB, installed size 453 kB12:09
gear4ikonia, the digitalocean mirror12:09
ikoniagear4: what repo though, I don't see it in the official ubuntu repos (I could be wrong though as I'm still looking)12:10
k1l_incognito-dg: and i would not listen to people saying other distros are way better when they come in here and need to ask for help :/12:10
ikoniathanks MonkeyDust12:10
BluesKajluajit  is the correct spelling12:10
ikoniagear4: the version you install from source, is it the same version as the package you're installing ?12:10
gear4ikonia, yes12:11
ikoniagear4: have you looked in the package to see if there are patches being used, something to make it different than the upstream source build ?12:11
gear4ikonia, ye12:11
gear4it's just a mirror12:11
incognito-dgMonkeyDust nice to learn about LXC. That's a new one for me.12:12
ikoniawhat do you mean it's just a mirror12:12
ikoniathe deb package can't be a "mirror" of the upstream version12:12
gear4it's made the same way but installed from a different server12:12
ikoniawhat do you mean it's made the same way ?12:12
ikoniagear4: I'm talking about the deb package you've installed via the apt-get command, against the upstream version you've manually compiled12:13
ikoniahave you checked if the deb package has any patches applied or changes ?12:13
gear4ikonia, oh ok12:13
gear4it's 2.0.412:13
gear4same as I downloaded, compiled and installed12:13
gear4and yes I have12:13
ikoniagear4: ok - so lets step back12:13
=== Guest75639 is now known as mosene
ikoniagear4: so the deb version and the compiled version are they exactly the same version yes/no12:14
ikoniagear4: does the deb package have any patches applied ontop of the source ?12:14
gear4as far as I can see no12:14
ikoniagear4: how did you check12:14
gear4downloaded the package sources12:14
ikoniagear4: how ?12:14
gear4what do you mean how12:15
ikoniagear4: how did you download the deb package source ?12:15
gear4apt-get lets me get the sources and I checked the deb file12:15
ikoniagear4: how did you download the deb package source12:15
ikoniagear4: I dont have an ubuntu box here to check, so I'm checking how you verified so we can move forward12:15
gear4what do you mean with "how"12:16
ikoniaok - I'm going to leave this alone now, as it shouldn't be this hard to request information, sorry gear412:16
gear4.. useless12:16
Hyrulewhat is the correct way of using $VARIABLE in PATH in /etc/environment? mine doesn't get expanded12:18
ikoniaHyrule: show us the line you've put in12:18
Azisgear4, since when u started using ubuntu?12:21
Hyrulecan't copy it right now (using ubuntu as VM guest), but its like JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/java/jdk{v} and PATH=/usr/local/sbin:{other locations}:$JAVA_HOME/bin12:21
gear4Azis, 201012:21
Woopwoophey can somebody help me out with an issue im having on my laptop with ubuntu? i want to remove it and install windows xp but it erase itself for some odd reason12:21
Woopwoopit wont*12:21
ikoniaHyrule: so that should work,12:22
ikoniaWoopwoop: what wont erase12:22
gear4Woopwoop, just wipe Ubuntu using the Windows intaller12:22
gear4or download gparted on a live disk12:22
ikoniaHyrule: basically if you do $PATH=$PATH:$your_additional_path_variable it should work12:22
Woopwoopikonia : i wanted to remove ubuntu from my acer aspire one, the weird part is is that i received it with Lubuntu and kodi12:22
Hyrulewhen I type export, it says PATH="{others}:\$JAVA_HOME/bin"12:22
ikoniaHyrule: try evaluating $JAVA_HOME with an "echo" statement first12:22
ikoniaHyrule: ok - so the \ is killing it12:23
WoopwoopI tried to remove ubuntu with boot-repair-disk but it didnt work12:23
k1l_Woopwoop: so there is only ubuntu installed and you want to have windows using all the disk?12:23
ikoniaHyrule: echo $JAVA_HOME - confirm it's being set,12:23
Woopwoopikonia : yes12:23
cfhowlettWoopwoop, boot repair disk is for windows not for ubuntu12:23
ikoniasomewhere a "\" is being slipped in and being used as an escape char, escaping the $ sign12:23
Hyruleikonia: yes it prints the correct path12:24
AzisBackup your file using linux life cd12:24
ikoniaHyrule: so you need to find where that escape char is comgin ing12:24
BluesKajWoopwoop, you need to reformat the drive to ntfs first then install windows otherwise windows won't see the ext file system/partition12:24
WoopwoopBlueskaj : how can i do that ?12:24
Azisand then download cd tools called hiren12:25
BluesKajeo with gparted live media12:25
AzisTry to make a new partition with Hiren, google is your friend12:26
Woopwoopblueskaj : my notebook has no disk drive by the way, so the only thing i can do at this moment is live usb12:27
Gassgparted is on ubutnu live12:27
k1l_<k1l_> Woopwoop: so there is only ubuntu installed and you want to have windows using all the disk?12:27
cfhowlettWoopwoop, y not boot windows and format the entire disk12:28
Woopwoopthats right, i want windows using the entire disk12:28
Woopwoopit wont let me12:28
Woopwoopi tried multiple times12:28
k1l_Woopwoop: then this is a ##windows issue12:28
Woopwoopand it takes me to ubuntus GNU Grub12:28
AzisI see the whole picture now12:28
PR0rI'm using Ubuntu 14.04 desktop and over the last few months, every time the system wants to update it basically removes all my installed applications? anyone know why this might be happening?12:28
cfhowlettWoopwoop, yep.  ##windows is the place for this question12:28
OerHeksahci issue, in your bios, join ##windows for that12:29
Woopwoophow would it be a question for windows if ubuntu is the OS im using.. it wont let me switch over because of the way its set up..12:29
MonkeyDustPR0r  maybe it deletes obsolote packages12:29
OerHeksWoopwoop, google for ahci + windows, lots of topics12:29
k1l_Woopwoop: you need to boot the usb-pendrive with the new OS on it. make sure that works. that is ##windows task now.12:30
tabuhello! the mouse pointer disappears when I boot with two monitors connected VGA+DVI, booting with only one monitor and then plugging the other solved it, but is there other workaround? I'm using a Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller12:30
k1l_Woopwoop: if you see grub, that means it booted from the disk. and not from the usb.12:30
tabulogging in, then out and then in again solved it as well12:30
PR0rwhat would make it obsolete? the programs are used to serve media, run downloads etc12:30
k1l_PR0r: could be that you removed a big meta package. and now all desktop packages are marked as "not needed anymore"12:31
AzisHmm wop wop there are many tools out there to install Gnu/linux or another os via usb12:31
Woopwoopwell if my drive is already set to ahci mode then what would be left to do :\12:31

cfhowlettPR0r, more data needed.  simulate (NOT execute an upgrade and paste the outcome) apt-get -s dist-upgrade12:31
k1l_Woopwoop: 1. make sure the windows usb pendrive works correctly. 2. make sure your bios boots from usb and not from hdd.12:31
MoziMi deleted the .list file it was talking about and the same error message pops up, any way to update dpkg? or do i have to use updatedb?12:32
PR0rstrange, I never uninstall anything. from time to time I get prompted with partial upgrade available12:32

WoopwoopIDE would help my USB load the windows installation on it?12:32
cfhowlettWoopwoop, for windows support, ask ##windows           !!!12:33
Woopwoophow is it windows support? because i said the word windows?12:34
OerHeksit feels like a crime, supporting XP ..12:34
Woopwoopim just asking if IDE mode will help my USB load..12:34

HyruleOK, so setting PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME in /etc/environment prevented me from logging in into ubuntu as they didn't expand also. Had to revert the changes to being able to login again.12:46
k1l_PR0r: hmm, not any hints for removing ubuntu-desktop12:46
k1l_PR0r: maybe way before that12:47
cfhowlettPR0r, here's a workaround sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop12:47
Hyrule"Note: Variable expansion does not work in /etc/environment." that remark somewhat I overread.12:48
Zedxasus usb ac 51 how to let it work?12:49
PR0rill give that a shot cfhowlett. The system wants to install updates and reboot but obviously I'm not going to as it is hours of setting back up. Should this workaround allow me to do the update and reboot do you think?12:51
PR0rwithout loss of applications12:52
OerHeksZedx, AC51 wifi ? maybe this page is any help http://askubuntu.com/questions/553097/how-do-i-install-the-asus-usb-ac51-wireless-adapter12:52
cfhowlettPR0r, removing the packages and then immediately reinstalling ubuntu-desktop (note ONLY installing ubuntu-desktop) while in a single terminal state means it won't even think to reboot until the reinstall is complete.  even then, a simple logout/login should get you going, not a full reboot12:53
PR0rIf only Ubuntu could keep updated without needing to restart :|12:53
ikoniaPR0r: no OS can do that12:53
ikoniaif you have a software component thats in use, how can you update it while it's loaded in memory12:53
cfhowlettI cannot remember a single time when ubuntu demanded a restart after an update12:53

Tachyon_Hello. I am now trying to install ubuntu 15.10 dual-booting with Windows. I made 100 gb free space to create a new partition for ubuntu, I did selected Something else in Ubuntu install, and  now I wonder what settings should I choose for the new partition. Help please ! Thanks.12:57

k1l_mifritscher: or use this link, which needs you to fill in more info manually: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+filebug/?no-redirect12:58
cfhowlettTachyon_, 10 gb should be more than enough for the root system /            and a /swap = Ram X 2        and put the remainder in /home12:58
mifritscherk1l_:  ah, no-direct was the trick - thanks!12:58
Tachyon_bekks: In partition settings, I selected free space and click plus and it ask me for things like: primary, logical, begginig of this space, end of this pace, use as, mount point12:59
k1l_Tachyon_: 10-15Gb for /, 1xram=swap (if you want swap at all), rest for /home12:59
Tachyon_It's a dual with windows.. never installed a linux :(12:59
bekksTachyon_: So pastebin the output of "sudo fdisk -l" please.12:59
k1l_Tachyon_: so make that partition a "extended partition" and put that 3  ubuntu partitions into that13:01
Tachyon_Isn't possible to put everything in a single partition ? Thank you for your patience, only used linux in virtual machines13:02

k1l_Tachyon_: i dont have the installer in front of me. i dont know that out of my head13:07
ppfif_gaga0: i did all those things13:07
k1l_Tachyon_: you can only make 4 primary partitions. and your windows is already using 3. so there is only one partition left for ubuntu. so make an extended one to make a proper setup13:07
if_gaga0ppf: ping use /etc/resolv.conf for get dns nameservers for resolving hostname, nmblookup use wins server13:09
k1l_Tachyon_: eventually you need to stop the installation. then use "gparted" and make that "extended partition manually with that partition program. then start the installer.13:09

tabuhello! the mouse pointer disappears when I boot with two monitors connected VGA+DVI, booting with only one monitor and then plugging the other solved it, but is there other workaround?

cfhowlettlooks good Tachyon_13:20
randssdi cannot find any syntax error in my statsoverride file13:20
randssdany ideas?13:20
k1l_Tachyon_: yes. and on the installer you need to mark that parittions and choose "use as" for /, swap and /home13:20
k1l_Tachyon_: dont forget to clikc on the green checkmark to let the actions take place.13:21
Tachyon_the installer has detected that the following disks have mounted partitions: /dev/sda. do you want the installer to try to unmount the partitions on these disks before continuing ?13:22
Tachyon_yes, I did clicked13:22
k1l_yes was right.13:22
k1l_Tachyon_: but you need to "run" the choosen changes in gparted first. if you just closed it after the screenshot the partitions might be not created. that was my point13:23
Tachyon_I clicked that button13:23
k1l_the yes is right.13:24
Tachyon_so I click yes13:24
Tachyon_ok I found where I choose for swap13:28
Tachyon_but for home and the other one ?13:29
k1l_choose "ext4" for them and then "use as" or "mount as" / and /home13:29

mifritscher@launchpad: is there a way to assign a bug to multiple packages?14:17
mifritscherfor example, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/tinyca/+bug/1545276 : the bug occours tinyca, but some symptoms (the crash itself after the error) seems to be in perl or in its gtk-module14:19
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1545276 in tinyca (Ubuntu) "16.04: Crash on start after selecting CA (created with 14.04)" [Undecided,New]14:19
OerHeksmifritscher, maybe the packages are related, or there is one bug causing an avalanche14:19
OerHeksand for 16.04 join #ubuntu+1 until release14:20
mifritscherOerHeks: yes, but the question itself doesn't relate to any specific ubuntu version ;-)14:20
mifritscherOerHeks: it is a perl script (no native code) - perl shouldn't be crash the hard way (access violation) whatever the script is trying to do ;-)14:21
BluesKajOerHeks, cfhowlett, it's interesting that PIA is mentioned with thanks in the server connection log, but card.freenode won't connect me to freenode if I try to connect with PIA vpn :-)14:23
OerHeksmifritscher, yes it does, it is a 16.04-version is in that bugreport, even if the CA created with 14.04.14:23

OerHeksmifritscher, still an 16.04 problem to me14:39
micesk1l_: not14:40
micesk1l_: could it be not enough ram14:40
mifritscherOerHeks: the bug itself? yes. The question how to use launchpad? no ;-)14:40
micesk1l_: this laptop ships with 4gb ram but i only put in 214:40
k1l_mices: can you put 4gb back in?14:40
micesk1l_: i have to go buy it14:41
k1l_mices: hmm. you could test with an Lubuntu.iso on a usb drive in a live system14:41
k1l_because Lubuntu uses lxde as desktop which is made for slow and old hardware. just to rule out the ram topic.14:42
k1l_mices: the intel video card(cpu) is known to work without issues on ubuntu. unity can run on systems with 2gb.14:43
miceswhat's unity?14:43
truexfan81ok i am convinced these tomcat issues i'm having is caused by something ubuntu has done to it, cause i have a copy of my setup in a fedora 20 vm and it works perfectly14:43
mijkhi, so I'm trying to customize my Live USB of 14 LTS and the TTY's always seem to revert back to the ubuntu auto logging in14:43
k1l_mices: so i think there is a hardware issue.14:43
k1l_mices: unity is the desktop you use on ubuntu14:43
k1l_truexfan81: could be a tomcat version issue?14:44
truexfan81k1l_: idk but after 2 days of fighting with it i'm about ready to just shut the game server down and walk away14:44
OerHeksmifritscher, i know no way to put multiple package as one in your report, you can name them manually i guess.14:46

gemitaHi...am having trouble finding the config file of a program I am using. How do I navigate to this? Looked in etc and can not find anything. I am looking specifically for  ~/.config/my-weather-indicator directory18:23
popey ~ means your home dir18:23
gemitaFirst time trying to navigate anywhere past storage files in terminal18:23
popeyso /home/alan/.config/fooo...18:23
popey(for me)18:23
gemitaill try that thanks18:23
k1l_gemita: using terminal or nautilus? in the nautilus you need to press ctrl+h to let it show hidden files and folders (the ones with the . at the name)18:24
InSyncthis is my first time using irc and i feel kinda lost lol18:25
popey(or in nautilus press CTRL+L and type .config - it will show it even if you have hidden files hidden)18:25
gemitakil, using terminal18:25
popeygemita: you can just type the ~18:26
popeycd ~/.config18:26
k1l_gemita: since the terminal starts at your home already. you can go with cd .config/.....18:26
DChapmancd $HOME :)18:27

ElLocoHi, I have a Lubuntu Netbook Atom n450. When I do in terminal uname -mpi I obtain i686 i686 i686. But the packages that install are i38618:27
gemitathanks Kil, that did it18:27
ElLocowhat can be the reason to do that?18:28
popeyElLoco: it's a legacy18:29
KimseHow to find all preseeding questions for a given package ?18:29
popeyElLoco: i386 packages are 32-bit ones, and run on any intel/amd compatible CPU18:29
OerHeksi686 is widely used to describe 32-bit P6 processor architecture which is compatible with Pentium Pro/II and has it's instruction set.18:30
artoisi386, i486, i686... hence "x86" :)18:30
gemitaOne more thing..how to delete a config file? By deleting it, it restores it to default, am I right?18:31
popeygemita: it might restore the app to default, depends on the app18:31
OerHeksgemita, not always, like xorg.conf18:31
ElLocoIf I try to use a i686 distribution it will download i386 packages?18:31
popeyElLoco: if you install an AMD64 (64-bit) distro, you'll get amd64 packages (64-bit)18:32
tewardElLoco: i386 as an arch abbreviation includes iX8618:32
OerHeksElLoco, there is no i686 distro version of ubuntu18:32

Pinkamena_D_I want to install three linux distros on a new hard drive I bought. kali, kubuntu, and ubuntu. I imagine that I could make the three primary partitions and swap manually, but I saw this other option 'LVM' when installing previously that looked like it might be relevant. Should I try to use LVM for this task?18:50
ikoniaPinkamena_D_: LVm will not work well for you18:50
ikoniaPinkamena_D_: I'd suggest you keep it simple18:50
ikoniaone swap partition shared between the 3, and 1 root file system each18:50
ikoniayou're going to have a very hard time managing grub though18:50
sandeepshey there, i am in a bit of trouble. Only the preinstalled softwares work in ubuntu the manually installed ones donot start18:51
Pinkamena_D_yes, but to clarify, this means that the space allocation for the first two partitions can not be modified, correct? this is not a hugh consideration, I was just wondering.18:51

ikoniayou're using terrible install methods for tools18:53
k1l_katoolin makes your system a kali linux18:54
ikoniaand to be honest - I don't know how katoolin works other than manipulates the sources to kali and pullin the packages18:54
ikoniaas kali is now based on debian this will cause a certain amount of risk18:54

eli--ive been getting in to penetration testing recently so to continue learning i changed from windows to unbuntu any e-books i should read to get used to linux/unbuntu18:55

ikoniathe sooner you accept it and move to a clean install and move forward with more sensible tools, the quicker you'll be working19:06

ikoniayou should really apply more thought before doing random things on your machine then19:08
sandeepsi found katoolin was ok but i never knew it could end up in a waste of time19:09

sandeepsi mean it was the only tool which could help me install kali tools on ubuntu19:10
ikonianot at all19:10
ikoniapretty much all the tools are available direct from ubuntu repos or other trusted repos19:10
ikoniaand the fact that kali is based on debian - not ubuntu, didn't ring alarm bells for you, is a bad sign19:11

OerHeks"Delete everything in /var/log, you will most likely end up with tons of error messages in very little time, since there are folders in there which are expected to exist. There are some services or applications that will *NOT* create their log files, if they don't exist. They expect at least an empty file to be present. So the direct answer to your question actually is "Do not do this!!!". i guess reinstall20:08

Rachael_Hi all, my password doesn't load GUI after fresh install and backup restore, although does work in tty, any ideas?20:51
sruliRachael_: is ur account encrypted with ecryptfs?20:51
spacecubhi all20:52
Rachael_sruli, i didn't encrypt my current OS but the original one may have been20:52
scuba323akik: Set that on my vps or my cygwin term20:53
spacecubtrying to execute a script via xterm, it just tells me its uncompressing the file?20:53
spacecubfile inst compressed to my knowledge20:53
akikscuba323: i guess by default your cygwin sets it locally to cygwin. you can check the value after logging into the vps by "echo $TERM"20:53
sruliRachael_: so on ur current install ur home dir is not encrypted? how did u restore backup? u copied old home dir to new install?20:55
akikscuba323: i always use screen, so i set TERM=screen and haven't come by an app that misbehaves20:55
Rachael_sruli, I restored home via deja dup20:55
Rachael_sruli, and no i don't think it is encrypted20:56
Rachael_sruli, I can log in via tty so know the password is correct, I've even changed it again to ensure it's right20:57
sruliRachael_: i dont know, the login fail on GUI sounds like a ecryptfs problem, might be something else, not sure20:57
PenorsaurusI am trying to use lftp to download a file to a remote directory20:57
Penorsaurusthe remote directory is a mounted CIFS drive.20:57
Rachael_sruli, yeah it worked ok before the restore20:57
Penorsauruswhen I download it, it says permission denied.20:57
scuba323akik: It's such a pain to have all the possible term types :P thanks though :) I will keep testin20:58
Penorsaurusgot it.20:58
sruliRachael_: on tty do "ecryptfs-recover-private" see if it finds something20:58
Rachael_sruli, are there known issues re restoring encrypted home dir's?20:58
Rachael_sruli, I'm on the same machine now, differnt Ubuntu OS, can I mnt the drive and check from here?20:59

Can someone please help me out? Till now I've susccessfully compiled mesa. But I have a feeling this isn't eneough....21:06
MonkeyDust!hwe | frojnd try this21:07
ubottufrojnd try this: The Ubuntu LTS enablement stacks provide newer kernel and X support for existing LTS releases, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack21:07
xanguafrojnd: what's there for compile¿ it's just a deb file21:09
frojndxangua: what? Where I don't see it :S21:09
xanguayou also want the graphic installer https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/intel-graphics-installer-linux-1.2.0 frojnd21:09
frojndxangua: I don't see it for Ubuntu 14.0421:11
gagalicioushow do i find and replace only ascii file? "find . -type f -exec sed -i 's/this/that/g' {} \;" <-- is what i have now but it doesnt detect ascii21:11
frojndxangua: Ubuntu* 15.04 was released in April 2015. Support for Ubuntu* 14.04 ended when the Graphics Installer v1.1.0 was released (10 Jun 2015). What does that mean?21:13
frojndxangua: can you help me out?21:13
Bashing-omfrojnd: Intel also advises no no : https://01.org/linuxgraphics/forum/graphics-installer-discussions/do-not-use-ubuntu-14.04 .21:13
frojndBashing-om: ok..21:14
frojndso no graphic installer..21:14
frojndI didn't use it in a first place21:14
frojndbut how do I install latest drivers?21:14
xanguawhy do you want to install latest drivers¿21:14
Bashing-omfrojnd: Intel provides the best they have to us .. and it is in the kernel . Now for new harfwar, a different story .21:14
frojndxangua: eh.. for my wife laptop can't reboot, poweroff hibernate,... I Found out it's because the intel driveres aren't latest21:15
frojndBashing-om: it's not new hardware21:15
xanguayou found out where¿ if this is really the case then install latest Ubuntu release21:15
frojndxangua: I can't I'm on Elementary OS - Freya which uses ubuntu 14.04.321:16

xanguafrojnd: elementary is not supported here21:16
frojndI'm not askign directly for elemetnary..21:17
frojndI simply asked how to install latest drivers for ubuntu 14.04.321:17
Bashing-omfrojnd: Then in that case, Intel provides .. there is no other than what Intel provides . As advised . What you can do to get a differnt driver _ not an advocate - os to go with the HWE stack. gets a new kernel, xerver and graphics driver .21:17
frojndBashing-om: ok21:17

Roger_The_BumHey guys! I have an older computer that I've been trying to install ubuntu on. Since I can't boot the laptop with external media (no USB boot, no floppy or cdrom drive), I tried to install it using a virtual machine with raw disk access. It boots and logs in fine, but I get a ton of errors and my networking isn't working properly. What's the best way to force everything to reconfigure or the best way to do as minimal of an ins21:28
Roger_The_BumThe errors I'm getting in particular are a 'DDC responded, but no EDID for DVI-D-1' message. I looked it up, but I'm not sure how to resolve it.21:29
bpromptRoger_The_Bum:   is that  a desktop or a laptop, you're trying to install it to?21:29
Roger_The_BumIt's a laptop. I tried with the minimal server install, and a xubuntu minimal install.21:30
Roger_The_Buma 2005 Toshiba Portege M20021:30
Roger_The_BumI wanted a challenge ;)21:30
bpromptRoger_The_Bum:    isn't that a single-core one?  like 1.7ghz or thereabouts?21:30
Roger_The_Bumprobably. I know it's 32-bit, and it's got a centrino processor according to the sticker21:31
Roger_The_BumTo clarify, it's a portege m200-s83821:31
Roger_The_BumIs it wrong to think that a lot of the errors come from trying to do the initial install on a Virtualbox instance?21:32
Jordan_URoger_The_Bum: My guess is that those errors aren't related to the way you installed Ubuntu.21:32
bpromptRoger_The_Bum:    anyhow, there are a "few" dual-centrino mobiles, but most centrinos are single-core   hmmm so ... no cd?   from 2005?  it would have a dvd I'd think21:33
Roger_The_BumOk, well at least that's a relief.21:33
Roger_The_BumCorrect. No CD (it's a tablet PC), because it apparently is included on a docking station.21:33
bpromptRoger_The_Bum:   well, easier way to install ubuntu is, take out the hdd, plug it elsewhere, install ubuntu to it, unplug it, replug it back in the laptop, it will reconfigure after a boot when it picks up the "new" hardware21:34
Roger_The_BumThat's what I did to get it to install, albeit through a virtual machine21:35
bpromptRoger_The_Bum:   I'd think is not the same a native install though21:36
Roger_The_BumThat makes sense. I can give that a shot. Will the mini.iso netinstaller be able to install on a USB-connected external hard drive, generally?21:37
Jordan_URoger_The_Bum: What release of Ubuntu did you install?21:38
bpromptRoger_The_Bum:   you can install to an external device, yes, just don't forget to install Grub2 to the external device as well21:39
Roger_The_BumJordan_U: 15.10, using mini.iso I tried the basic server installation and xubuntu-minimal21:39

OerHeksspacecub, are you using ubuntu 32 bit?22:42
spacecublubuntu 64 bit22:42
markwaltcan anyone recommend a decent irc client?  I'm using xchat and I kind of hate it.  By decent, I mean something similar to mirc, for a guy (me) who hasn't been on IRC in almost 15 years.22:42
OerHeksspacecub, oh, then i have no idea, not the 32 bit issue like this http://www.liflg.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=110322:43
rwwmarkwalt: for starters, xchat development stopped a while ago and you should look into hexchat instead22:43
NginUSmarkwalt: I use KVIRC unless I'm on Sabayon, which has a rendering bug that prevents the window from restoriing- now I'm on Quassel & like it almost as well.22:43
rwwmarkwalt: for a second, mIRC is generally considered terrible by non-mIRC users, so there's not a whole lot like it out there :\22:43
NginUSdunno anything re mirc tho- sry if im being irrelevant22:44
rwwmarkwalt: that said, the usual suggestions IRC-wise are hexchat/kvirc/quassel/konversation on the GUI side, or irssi/weechat on the terminal side22:44
k1l_markwalt: the times of the irc clients who play mp3, run scripts and make coffee are over :)22:44

* NginUS wonders if we'll ever have IoT chatbots one day22:45
NginUSGrande mocha with an extra shot & vanilla syrup pleez22:45
markwaltThanks for the suggestions22:46
markwaltIs hexchat a fork of xchat?22:46
rwwmarkwalt: yes22:46
markwaltthen I might skip it.22:46
spacecubsomebody said change sh to bash on the first line sorts it, =however, the installer complained on the checksum22:47
NginUSmarkwalt: kvirc lets you separate the joins/quits/etc-type messages to a split screen above the real meat & potatoes of conversation, but you have to configure it to open the channels you want at startup, whereas Quassel remembers what channels were open when it closed & reopens them when it restarts & you can disable totally those needless messages from ever appearing- i kinda liked having the split screen for those tho- whatever- test22:48
NginUS some over the w/e22:48
markwaltkvirc must be for kde.  I'm running xubuntu, and kvirc wants to install almost 300 megs of stuff.22:48
NginUSthen theres that22:49
markwaltquassel's a little smaller, only around 200 megs22:49
* NginUS remembers the good ol days of 'Blueflops'22:49
k1l_that is the issue with kde programs. you need some kde depencies if you are not using kde.22:49
k1l_markwalt: http://askubuntu.com/questions/8015/what-irc-clients-are-available  here are some with screenshots22:50
markwaltI might do it anyway, but now I want to try hexchat22:50
rwwyeah, at minimum move to hexchat while you're evaluating alternatives22:51
