fk_007using trusty on an acer easystore h340. system load average according to top is around 1.09. Seems like high interrupt activity with continuous ksoftirqd processes. any known issues with this setup or fixes to bring down the load? is it normal or something to be concerned about?00:10
saitoh183im getting a 302 error with apache. what would be the proper grep syntax to get Redirect / RedirectMatch / RewriteRule with [R] / RewriteRule with a fully qualified URL as a target / Location: header returned from application00:14
codepython777how do i update setuptools on ubuntu 14.04LTS?00:15
ikoniaupdate from what to what00:16
ikoniasaitoh183: grep is used to find things, not set things00:16
saitoh183ikonia: i know i was told to use grep to find the redirect info out because im trying to figure out why im getting a 302 error ...where it is coming from00:17
ikoniasaitoh183: just look in the vhost config00:18
ikoniayou don't need to grep, just read the file00:18
codepython777whats the best way to upgrade/install setuptools for ubuntu 14.04LTS?00:18
ikoniacodepython777: upgrade from what to what00:19
saitoh183ikonia: that is the thing...i dont have a redirect line in the vhost...basically i have a nginx in front of a apache and for some reason the only vhost that doesnt work is my nextcloud00:19
ikoniasaitoh183: so it would be nginx doing the redirect, not apache00:20
saitoh183ikonia: that is what i figured but i cant figure out why it isnt working... see here: https://help.nextcloud.com/t/apache-with-nginx-ssl-reverse-proxy-in-front/1650/200:21
ikoniasaitoh183: 302 is not found, so look on your apache errors what it's looking for and why it's failing00:21
ikoniasaitoh183: not sure why you're looking in apache for redirects on a 302 error when the redirect is on ngnix00:22
ikoniajust look at the apache logs, see what its looking for and why it's failing00:22
codepython777ikonia: sudo pip2.7 install --upgrade setuptools --> What is the correct way of doing this on ub 14.04LTS?00:22
ikoniacodepython777: use the package from ubuntu package manager00:22
saitoh183ikonia: cuz the error appeared in the apache log00:23
saitoh183ikonia: but i figured it was nginx00:23
ikoniasaitoh183: yes, it will as apache is erroring00:23
codepython777ikonia: what happens when one runs that on top of setuptools from package manager?00:23
ikoniacodepython777: you shouldn't do that00:23
codepython777ikonia: if i do pip install ansible - it complains00:24
ikoniathen don't do that00:24
ikoniastop using pip00:24
ikoniause the ubuntu package manager00:24
saitoh183ikonia: nginx log also has the 302 error in access log...i turned on debug for error log...00:25
ikoniasaitoh183: ok, so do the same on the ngnix server00:25
alekzantherdon't know if this is the place to ask, but is there a "store" or GUI of some kind for snap packages?00:26
saitoh183ikonia: i turned it on for the ngnix error log but the thing is that i dont know what im looking for..lol00:28
ikoniawhy is that funny ?00:28
ikoniaif you don't know how to read the log files, I suggest you read up on it, or get some tips from the ngnix channel00:29
saitoh183ikonia: well i mean what to look for that would point to why this vhost is acting this way and all the others work00:31
ikoniasaitoh183: read the error log, the error log will show you what it's trying to hit and why it's erroring, then work out why that situation is happening00:31
saitoh183ikonia: i guess i will check with the nginx channel...the browser error is too many redirects and in the log i see the same request coming in over and over but dont see what is causing it00:36
ikoniaprobably a redirect loop00:37
alekzanthersounds like it00:38
saitoh183ikonia: yeah but what is causing it is what i cant figure out00:39
ikoniaread the log00:39
ikoniathe log will show whats been called00:39
ikoniathen look at that "call" in relation to how the config will serve it up00:39
ikoniawork it through00:39

Guest47621hey guys. new to ubuntu, come from another distro. i can't seem to install the openvpn plugins for networkmanager. ubuntu software shows nothing01:07
Guest47621how can i do this?01:07
Guest47621i found tutorials on how to setup an openvpn server, but i just need the client end to i can CONNECT to a VPN service01:07
Guest47621i am totally lost01:08
Guest47621my only option is PPTP it would appear01:08
Guest47621i enabled all the extra repositories as well01:08
Guest47621what am i doing wrong?01:08
alekzantherhave you checked https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OpenVPN ?01:09
Guest47621yep. got that tab open already01:09
Guest47621installing the server.. is that what i want to do?01:10
Guest47621i don't want to run an openvpn server, i just wnat to connect to one01:10
Guest47621this is why i am lost01:10
Guest47621guess i'll keep searching for now01:11
alekzantherwell I guess you've found the tutorials I've already found01:12
Guest47621thanks :(01:12
Guest47621this was so easy in fedora distros, i could just do it all in the GUI01:12
alekzantherdo you have a .ovpn-file?01:12
Guest47621i figured Ubuntu being Ubuntu, you know, that it would be a breeze01:12
Guest47621i have a file from the vpn service01:13
Guest47621that needs to be imported01:13
alekzantherthis url seems to hint at something in that direction: http://askubuntu.com/questions/460871/how-to-setup-openvpn-client01:13
Guest47621it worked ginebut i just need the OpenVPN option to show up in NM01:13

Guest47621alekzanther: checking that link now lets see what it holds :P01:14
alekzantherwell you said you already got it to work, but that you also want it to show up in NM-dropdown i guess01:15
Guest47621no no. i had it working on other distros01:15

alekzantherwell openvpn may not be ubuntus finest hour, but there are some fine hours otherwise01:17
alekzantheralso, have you restarted the networkmanager after installing openvpn?01:17
Guest47621yea i was really looking forward to trying out unit01:18
Guest47621i want to install openvpn from the GUI, if i can't even do that, then ubuntu is not for me01:18

Guest47621SchrodingersScat: besides Synaptic, and without using the CLI, is there really no other way to achieve this?01:22
Guest47621if not, then synaptic it will be! lol01:22
alekzantheryou know which package to get right?01:23
ubottuYou can browse and search for Ubuntu packages using !Synaptic, !KPackageKit, !Muon, "apt-cache search <keywords or regex>", or online at http://packages.ubuntu.com - Ubuntu has about 30000 packages available, so please *search* for an official package before installing things in awkward ways!01:24
SchrodingersScatGuest47621: those are the only two gui i know of, the software center and synaptic.  hypothetically they both use an apt backend anyway.01:24
Guest47621alekzanther: sorry just saw the link you posted. the webchat makes it very difficult to see as i am usually on Hex :(01:25
Guest47621SchrodingersScat: and i can't force Ubuntu Software to show those additional programs?01:25

jon_can i install fresh ubuntu from a stick and not lose any of the data that exists on current install?01:52
alekzantherGuest47621, well the power of your installation is that you own it now. also, I've never used openvpn myself and I still kind of helped you through it, so it's just a matter of using the system long enough - like "winbl0wz" familiarity. also, there's not a "winbl0wz" freenode irc chat for you to ask questions I think :)01:53
alekzantherdamn it all, effort wasted01:53
SkyBellowIs Ubuntu really good?01:55
SkyBellowI mean... the best distribution?01:56
tortibIf you want a working linux distro that most stuff works OOB then yes01:56
tatertots@jon you want to (re)install ubuntu from usb stick without losing data that you have on the hard drive in the "existing" ubuntu installation?01:56
quizzy85SkyBellow: You got the .iso free right so there is a benefit already right. Most things can be done in GUI but make Terminal your friend.01:57
tatertotsSkyBellow the term/phrase 'best' is subjective01:58
tatertotsthe ford f-250 beats the Lamborghini in the race when 2 tons are attached to the back of both vehicles ...remove the 2 tons and the Lamborghini beats the ford f-25001:59
alekzantherSkyBellow, I've used arch, debian, opensuse, fedora, manjaro... and I still fall back to ubuntu because for some reason steam works best there :P02:00
tatertotssee so in the context of that race one can't simply say "well the Lamborghini is best" without knowing if the cars will have to haul a 2 ton load or not during the race02:01
alekzanthertatertots, that's not the best metaphor but... i'll let it slide02:03
linuxfoolCan I used dnsmasq as a total replacement for network manager?02:05
alekzantherlinuxfool, OK let's get an answer to your question then02:05
alekzantherlinuxfool, nope... they serve different purposes i guess: https://wiki.debian.org/HowTo/dnsmasq#Local_Caching_using_NetworkManager02:07
marco^can somebody help me with getting my encrypted ubuntu to boot? grub couldn't find the boot partition and know after i changed some stuff i get a kernel panic - not syncing. http://pastebin.com/rNMZf1yD02:08
linuxfoolThanks, alekzanther. Does network manager do anything that can't be done with built-in commands on the command line? I'm going to be running a wired LAN that's not connected to the internet.02:08
linuxfoolAnd the whole purpose on the LAN is just to boot up some diskless clients.02:09
alekzantherI'm not sure what you're aiming at with the network manager, but it seems dnsmasq can act as a dns forwarder and dhcp host... it can serve names if local machines which are not in the gateway/router dns etc02:13
hiexpooops why'd you encrypt the boot looder02:13
hiexpoback to the drawing board02:14
hiexpoMarco, what made you Encrypt the boot loader?02:16
alekzantherlinuxfool, it seems you'd like a server to act as an dhcp/dns host and forward the clients to the correct server with the image files to boot from I guess02:17
marco^did i encrypt the boot loader? my /boot partition is ext2 and not encrypted02:17
alekzantherjust do it then, shouldn't be too hard since you already got yourself in the position of having some thin clients waiting to boot02:18
alekzanthermarco^, got any other linux distro on the disk you could boot to?02:18
marco^i'm currently on a live usb stick02:19
alekzantheryou should try to update-grub02:20
alekzanthermaybe this link can help you out http://askubuntu.com/questions/145241/how-do-i-run-update-grub-from-a-livecd02:20
linuxfoolalekzanther: Correct. I can't tell if network manager is the problem or something else. Sometimes is works and other times it doesn't.02:20
marco^i already did that using chroot and it displayed no error02:20
alekzanthermarco^, did you mount the drives as stated in the link?02:21
marco^yes i used that exact askubuntu answer a few minutes ago02:22
alekzantherand what does it say when you run update-grub then?02:23
alekzantherand have you followed that tutorial to the letter?02:24
marco^yes i printed some boot options ending with windows (loader) if i remember correctly. i'll try that once more02:25
alekzantherlinuxfool, how is the network setup? Are there more than one DHCP-servers in the network? what does it say when it doesn't work? "Can't reach local-domain-name blabla" or just a connection error?02:25
Bashing-omlinuxfool: In your given situation, why do you even need a network-manager ? I run a stationary desktop .. and I manage networking my self .. no need of a fancy manager here .02:28
marco^alekzanther: here are the results from update-grub http://pastebin.com/P3itpDkf02:28
alekzantherHe doesn't need it, he's just troubleshooting02:28
alekzanthermarco^, are you sure you have the correct boot order in bios/uefi? :)02:29
marco^well yes it's booting from my harddrive into grub, then i select ubuntu, i type in the password to unlock 'swap' and then it shows me a busybox prompt02:31
marco^or atleast it did that before, now it show me a kernel panic before i can type in the pw probably because i messed with fstab/crypttab02:32
linuxfoolalekzanther, Bashing-om , I'm trying to run Porteus Kiosk clients off my ubuntu desktop which is acting as the server. I'm using the script provided by Porteus to get everything running. For example, I've disconnected my internet connection and restarted the network manager then run the script. The script is here: http://pastebin.com/2GtNfavY02:33
alekzantherwhat version did you have?02:33
alekzanthermarco^, maybe you experienced this bug then: http://askubuntu.com/questions/616663/after-new-ubuntu-15-04-installation-startup-asks-for-password-even-though-no-di02:33
linuxfoolAfter I run everything the server simply doesn't have an IP address. When I assign one to it with "sudo ifconfig eth0", which is the IP address the clients are supposed to look for for their PXE boot, the boot fails.02:34
linuxfoolWhen I plug the internet connection back up, it will work sometimes, but not everytime.02:34
marco^no i'm expecting it to ask me for a pw because i installed ubuntu on an encrypted luks partition (following this guide: http://thesimplecomputer.info/full-disk-encryption-with-ubuntu)02:35
linuxfoolAnd it only works when I retart network manager02:35
alekzantherlinuxfool, I'm definitely no expert and I don't think I can dig any further than you in this, sorry02:38
linuxfoolThanks for the effot, alekzanther02:39
alekzanthermarco^, maybe it got f***ed up when you fiddled with fstab etc?02:40
alekzantherlinuxfool, the kiosks are aimed at talking to some DNS?02:41
marco^alekzanther:  yeah maybe, i'll probably just reinstall ubuntu. thanks for your help :)02:42
alekzanthermarco^, hope you get a better experience next run :)02:42
ninguif I have a package installed that is newer than the current apt sources list, is there a way to tell apt-get to remove it and install the latest that it knows about?02:43

Bashing-om!ppa-purge | ningu02:46
ubottuningu: To disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html02:46

SchrodingersScatningu: just uninstall it?02:46
ninguSchrodingersScat: yes, I will do that02:46
ninguI was just wondering if there was a better way, that's all02:46
SchrodingersScatI don't think you need anything special to remove a package and not install a version that apt doesn't know about02:47
Bashing-omningu: Then that begs the question, how you got an elevated version installed ?02:47
ninguBashing-om: I was testing a beta version of postgresql and now I want to go back to the 9.5 version of libpq. I can do it manually, the question was not how to do it at all but how to do it by only specifying the package names and nothing about the specific versions02:47
ninguapt should be able to know what the latest libpq is in its sources list and install that. but apparently it isn't any sort of default-supported option so I'd have to script it02:48
Bashing-omCLI is your feoend .. but if ya got synaptic installed .. synaptic should be able to handle removing a package that the package manager is aware of .02:50
ninguof course, you're missing the point. why should I have to look up the latest version of libpq and whatever other packages and copy/paste it? it's clearly something that could be automated and I wanted to know if someone had already done it02:51
ningubut since they haven't I will just write something myself, probably02:51

lickalottanyone have any idea why 3 other systems (all different OS's) would be able to mount an NFS share except my ubuntu laptop?  I just had to rebuild the server and re-share out the folders.  Is there some caching that happens with NFS on the client side??03:42

I was wondering beetwen a normal install and a persistent live install. I'll have to runs VMs, c code with OpenMPI and 64bit simulation. Currently my external hd drives with ubuntu is dying so i need to switxch fast08:43
ikoniaso neither of those options are good options08:44
edenrozikonia: I would hate two full instal on the 2 laptop08:44
ikoniathats up to you,08:44
ikoniabut running from an external USB device and running VM's is a bad idea, running a live persistant setup and doing that is even worse08:45
edenrozikonia: with this usb3.0 hd external install i was running very good, a bit sloow but okay08:45

aquarius_hey, gang. As part of a normal package update, my 14.04 machine has popped up a debconf window saying "Disable UEFI Secure Boot?". The help dialog says that "Secure Boot is not compatible with the use of third party drivers". I don't think I have any third-party drivers; the Additional Drivers window doesn't show any. Why am I being asked to disable Secure Boot, and do I need to do it even though I shouldn't?09:36

SnoopyDggHello! Couldsomebody explaint to me, why my crontab didn't run? '25 9 * * SUN mysqldump -u root -pPASSWORDHERE --all-databases --routines --triggers > alldbs.sql' I'm on Ubuntu 14.04. It runs fine when I do it from SSH.09:41
PandraHello, has anyone used tigthvnc extensively? I found, and quote, "In TightVNC, this is the default mode, allowing you to share the desktop with other clients already using it." But how do i actually do the sharing?09:42
ikoniaSnoopyDgg: you don't just run commands from cron09:42
SnoopyDggikonia, how do I do it?09:42
ikoniaSnoopyDgg: the cron shell is quite limited, so you have to make sure the environment is setup, most people call a script for that reason09:42
ikoniaSnoopyDgg: why is the word "Sun" in your cron09:42
SnoopyDggikonia, so it's run on sunday09:42
ikoniayou put the day number, not the name09:43
Daleducasse: are you still here09:43
SnoopyDggat 09:2509:43
SnoopyDggikonia, http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18919151/crontab-day-of-the-week-syntax09:43
ikonianot interested in that09:43
SnoopyDggikonia, exactly from wikipedia "Saturday, or use names; 7 is also Sunday)"09:44
ikoniaright, the names aren't always supported09:44
ikoniait depends on the version09:44
ikoniaso be safe, use the numbers, but it's up to you09:44
SnoopyDggikonia, so it didn't run because of SUN or something else? You said "you have to make sure the environment is setup, most people call a script for that reason" what does that mean?09:45
ikoniaSnoopyDgg: no, I explained to setup the environment09:45
ikoniaI'm just offering you advice about the name SUN on the side, you can ignore it if you want, it's all up to you09:46
diskinfrom man 5 crontab: 'Months or days of the week can be specified by name'09:46
SnoopyDggdiskin, but why it didn't run?09:46
ikoniaSnoopyDgg: I've just told you09:46
ikoniaSnoopyDgg: the cron environment is minimal09:47
ikoniayou need to setup your enviornment - thats why a lot of people wrap it in a shell09:47
ikoniaSnoopyDgg: also look at the cron log, did it try to execute and fail, or not try to execute09:47
SnoopyDggikonia, where is cron log located?09:47
ikonia /var/log - where all the logs are09:47
ikoniacome on, this is basic cron and basic debugging09:48
ikoniayou can't expect to use tools without this level of basic understanding09:48
SnoopyDgghow else am I supposed to learn?09:48
ikoniaby doing it and reading09:48
SnoopyDggikonia, that's exactly what I'm doing, isn't it?09:48
ikonianot just saying "it's broke" "how do I" "where is that"09:48
ikoniano, you're just asking for people to fix it09:48
ikoniayou've not even checked the logs, you've not checked if cron logs, you've not checked crons shell env09:49
ikoniaall of this would be clear steps if you'd not just read the headline of a wiki to look at the format for a cron entry and done it09:49
SnoopyDggI don't even know how to do it09:49
ikoniadon't know how to do what ?09:49
Daleread logs i guess09:49
kromwellIn VirtualEnv I install BeautifulSoup4 and it says it installed, but when I go to terminal and try to import it, it says no such module exists.09:58
kromwellThe path it refers to is /usr/local/lib/python3.4/dist-packages09:58
kromwellwhen it says it is installed09:58
kromwellEach virtualenv should store modules in a specific location and not in /usr/local/lib/python*/dist-packages, right?09:58
kromwellSo why isnt mine doing that?09:59
kromwellI'm using pip09:59
kromwellbut I read that pip is compatible in virtualenv and that setup.py install isnt necessary10:00
sacarlson2SnoopyDgg: I'm not sure but in many cases I have had to put the full path to what I run in cron as the shell is not setup the same at the account you use normaly10:02
kromwellNevermind.It turns out it was installed but I invoked it under an incorrect name.10:04
sacarlson2also SnoopyDgg: I've never seen SUN used in cron,  numbers 0 - 6  are used with "0" being sunday10:11
SnoopyDggsacarlson2, what shell would look like in my case?10:12
ikoniait's not a shell10:12
ikoniait's the shell environemnt10:12
ikoniaa user shell env is a lot more complete than the stripped down cron10:12
ikonianow I've told you that - research it10:12
sacarlson2SnoopyDgg: if you want to see what your default env for your normal system is as far as path you could try >echo $PATH10:13
sacarlson2but no need to setup path if you just enter the full path the the file you want to run10:14
Daleanyone know why my autologin wont work after updating my kernel10:14

ikoniadon't pastebin it10:19
Dalei did read it10:19
ikoniayou're just asking us to do the work for you10:19
ikoniaDale: ok - so what stands out in the log10:19
Dale id say /usr/sbin/lightdm-session line 29 no such file10:19
ikoniaDale: so if you look at that log - there are a good few errors you need to fix10:19
ikoniaset about fixing those errors10:19
Daleis there another log location specifically for lightdm10:21
ikoniayou've just got the info10:21
ikoniawhy are you looking for another log - rather than fixing those issues10:21
sacarlson2Dale: might look at /var/log/system see maybe some disk failed to mount or ??10:22
ikonia /var/log/system ??10:22
ikoniathats not even a log file10:22
sacarlson2sorry /var/log/syslog10:23
ikoniawhy would he look at that ?10:23
sacarlson2I see permision problems on /tmp dir so maybe tmp is mounted to ??.  maybe I didn't look back into what he's doing10:24
ikoniayou don't need to look at a log10:25
ikoniajust mount or touch /tmp/test10:25
ikoniabut fix the errors in that log - the startup looks to be a mess10:25
sacarlson2yes touch /tmp/test would prove that it is mounted.  so maybe the user that runs lightdm doesn't have perms to access or create files in it10:26
sacarlson2on my system /tmp is setup with perms of 777 that you would expect all could write and read from10:28
Dalei have no idea whats wrong. im about to just nuke the entire thing10:28
ikoniathe logs show you what's failig10:29
Desusacarlson2: should be 177710:34
Desufor obvious reasons10:34
Grorcohello all10:34
sacarlson2Desu: you are correct as I just looked at drwxrwxrwt  and didn't count the 110:35
Daleive adjusted perms it didnt help. like i said im at a loss10:35
Dalei never said lightdm didt work, i merely said it doesnt autologin anymore10:36
sacarlson2yes so that means you manualy can login if you enter user pass?10:36
Dalei could if i had a keyboard possibly10:36
sacarlson2so you have not proven if you can login at all10:37
Daleunless i can do it over ssh i cant do much of anything10:37
sacarlson2how do you see the logs if you don't login?10:37
ahrc333ffThat's a login :)10:38
sacarlson2oh create a new user with ssh and try login to that10:38
Daleim already logged in through ssh10:39
sacarlson2create a fresh new user10:39
Dalewhy would i do that10:39
sacarlson2to get rid of all the changes made in your preset account and start from a default one.  just a hunch10:39
bekksFor testing autologin.10:39
sacarlson2I assume you can't login to X your just login on ssh to text10:40
Dalenot that i know of10:40
bekksDale: Pastebing "mount" please.10:40
bekksMaybe you have a readonly system currently.10:41
sacarlson2bekks: good point10:41

ducassethe perms on /tmp are screwed up, at least.10:51
ducasseafaik kodibuntu is not an official flavor10:51
bekkshttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuFlavors does not list kodibuntu, so it isnt an official flavor.10:51
bekksYeah, perms on /tmp are not 1777, as can be seen.10:52
Dalewhat would i do to ajust the perm10:52
ducasseDale: 'man chmod'10:52
bekksDale: you have been told to run chmod 1777 /tmp already.10:52
Dalesweet. that fixed it10:53
Dalethank you so much10:53
Dalei guess installing a diff kernel messed with the /tmp permissions10:54
bekksYou did that, and you didnt fix permissions as you stated earlier.10:54
Dalei said "guess" not did10:54
Dalei did it when10:55
bekksNo, as can be clearly seen you did not set 1777 earlier.10:55
Daleim just stating i never changed the perm from the earlier install.10:55
Dalei thought 777 was the correct perm to use10:56
bekksAnd you did not set them to 777 earlier.10:56
bekksThat can be clearly seen in you pastebin.10:56
Dalei attempted to10:57
Dalehere we go if ound it10:58
Dale"sudo chmod 777 /tmp"10:58
Dalei tried that earlier10:58

egrainSeveas, some weird photo book editing thing. CEWE fotobuch.11:36
bekksegrain: https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Fotobuch/11:37
Seveasegrain: looks like that file does not exist in any ubuntu package, apt-file returns nothing11:37
kromwellSeveas, sudo apt-get install phantomjs, the second error listed there is because I used export DISPLAY:10 when I was trying to run firefox headless11:37
Seveashm, that *should* install all the dependencies as well11:37
egrainwell, doesn't. the whole package is fucked up. gives you hardly any documentation how to install it. if i didn't know where i had to look for, nothing would have happened.11:38
egrainyou first need to chmod +x the .pl file. nothing about that on the download page, nor that you have to start it in the terminal. and then when you start the "mein fotobuch" thing like you are supposed to, it tells you: library not found.11:39
bekksegrain: Unoack the tarball, make the install.pl executable, run it.11:39
egraini got all that.11:39
egrainoh! it gets better. for the EULA you need to know the man page / vi commands.11:39
bekksAnd there are even screenshots on the download page :)11:39
bekksegrain: you can use a graphical text editor as well.11:40
bekksNo need for "man" or "vi".11:40
egrainnot when you install it.11:40
bekksYou could even use LibreOffice for reading it.11:40
kromwell<Seveas> hm, that *should* install all the dependencies as well11:40
kromwellI'll try reinstalling and then linking to the binary path when I call PhantomJS through Selenium11:41
egrainif start the install.pl file with "execute program" (don't know the exact english word. everything is german here), nothing happens.11:45
jattperl install.pl11:45
egrainonly if i do it via terminal, which brings me back to the needing to know that "q" exits the EULAS wehn i few them.11:45
bekksegrain: And whats the problem at that point, since you do know it?11:46
egrainthat after i installed it it tells me it can't find the libCWCore.so.1.11:47
egrainwhich brought me here.11:47
egraingoogle told me nottin.11:47
bekksegrain: This is the totally wrong place for complaining about a 3rd party software which isnt shipped by Ubuntu. :) Point your complaints to the authors of that software :)11:47
bekksegrain: So whats the output when running the installer?11:47
egrainoh, that's all good. installs and everything.11:48
egrainbut when i start the foto buch thingy, it gives me: "error while loading shared libraries: libCWCore.so.0: cannot open shared oject file. No such file or directory.11:49

noizexanyone using clang with Ubuntu 16 and being able to compile with -std=c++11 ?12:31
noizexseems like it's all messed, can't figure out what I need12:31
\9noizex: it works fine for me12:31
noizexeither missing headers, or it's unable to link12:31
hxr1success, at least I've logged in to LIVE version12:32
hxr1nomodset resolved that :)12:32
ikonianoizex: "compile" is generic12:32
ankitsacaelson2: laptop speakers are not working12:32
ikoniait depends what you're compiling and how12:32
ikoniait's not a generic "this works, this doesn't"12:32
noizexikonia: anything really, I have problems compiling a file with #include <iostream> int main { std::cout << "foo"; }12:33
ikonia"a problem"12:33
sacarlson2ankit: I think I see a solution here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/117842/no-sound-from-speakers-but-headphones-work12:33
noizexcan't find iostream12:33
ikoniayou must understand people need details to actually be able to help12:33
ikonianoizex: ok - so thats it not able to find the header12:33
noizexit's picking Selected GCC installation: /usr/bin/../lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/5.4.012:33
ikoniawhat has that got to do with it12:34
ikoniait can't find a header12:34
noizexprobably version of headers it will be looking for12:34
juanonymousis it possible to have two different hostnames?12:34
ikoniawhere is it looking for the header12:34
ikoniajuanonymous: in what respect ?12:34
sacarlson2ankit: as it says this: sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf;  Now add the following line at its end: ;  options snd-hda-intel model=generic12:34
ikoniajuanonymous: can you give the usecase12:34
noizexthough it doesn't include 5.4.0 path to include12:34
juanonymousi saw a user in irc have a hostname of this -harfox (~harfox@Playboy.Kab.el.Gy) has left #bacolod (SailingTheSevenSeas)12:35
juanonymousbut when i tried checking the real hostname12:35
noizexikonia: I asked a general question because I thought it may be usual problem, I found some posts that it's broken for Ubuntu, if anyone can try and help I will provide sample code or whatever is needed12:36
juanonymousit points to - khusus.dewasa.yang.bisa.nonton.xxx-online.video.12:36
ikonianoizex: where is it looking for the headerts12:36
\9juanonymous: that doesn't have anything to do with ubuntu. take it to the channel ops12:37
noizexikonia: http://paste.ubuntu.com/19761117/12:37
ankitsacaelson2: i tried this one, also not working out :(12:37
ikonianoizex: don't want a paste,12:38
ikonianoizex: just an answer, where is it looking for the header12:38
\9the paste has the list of paths12:38
ikoniaright, but where is it looking for the header you need12:38
\9in.. those paths?12:39
noizexok, I'm confused12:39
noizexI gave you list of paths compiler tries to look in for iostream12:39
ikonianoizex: where is the physical header file12:39
noizexwhich is in /usr/include/c++/5/iostream or /usr/include/c++/4.9/iostream12:39
noizexand I have no idea why it won't look there12:39
ankitanyone help me to fix ubuntu 16.04 no sound from speakers but headphones are working fine12:39
ikonianoizex: have you told it to look in there ?12:40
noizexit seems like it uses GCC headers and it should just pick these12:40
\9shouldn't need to tell it to look there12:40
\9it's a standard header in a standard location12:40
ikoniaif you look at the search path - it's not looking there12:40
ikoniaso is the environment screwed up ?12:40
ikoniatell it to look there and see if it works12:40
\9that's what i'd think too12:40
\9ankit: are you sure your speakers are not physically broken?12:40
noizexikonia: I tried adding it by hand, but it feels wrong and got another error: /usr/include/c++/5/iostream:38:10: fatal error: 'bits/c++config.h' file not found12:41
ankit\0 i don't know actually, they are fixed into laptop :)12:41
ankit\9i don't know actually, they are fixed into laptop :)12:41
\9i see12:41
cerionhi. I use redshift-gtk. It automatically added a .desktop file in ~/.config/autostart. But that does not launch it at login. In fact, X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled was set to false in the .desktop. SO i set it to true. But nonetheless, redhsift-gtk is not launched automatically. What's wrong ,12:41
ikonianoizex: ok - so now it's looking for a different header12:41
ankit\9  don't know actually, they are fixed into laptop :)12:41
ikonianoizex: where is that header ?12:41
codepython777has anyone made a deb file here recently?12:42
ikoniacodepython777: just ask your real question12:42
codepython777I was thinking of making a .deb file to install cmake in /opt12:42
noizexhere: /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/c++/5/12:42
paranoidabhiI am new to linux. I wanted to automate upgrades. I tried this solution https://github.com/abhigenie92/unattended_upgrades_repos. If possible can anyone give me suggestions on how to improve it. Or suggest better solutions.12:42
ikonianoizex: ok, so from your path, iut's not looking there - so you can expect it to fail12:42
noizexI tried adding it too then it comes to linker errors12:42
sacarlson2ankit: I'm sure you tried this: up vote         0         down vote                                         I had the same issue. Go to "System Settings" select "Sound" and then  select "Headphones" as the option in the the "Connector" drop down menu  list.12:42
codepython777does anyone have a simple way of doing that? I've a script that compiles and installs it in /opt12:42
ikonianoizex: so that means it's working then12:42
\9ankit: try use 'alsamixer' in console, press F6 and go through the devices listed12:42
sacarlson2ankit: like it might be reversed12:42
ikoniayour build environment is just wrong12:42
\9maybe it's just muted?12:43
ankit\9 there are two options default, HDA Intel12:43
codepython777I was looking at this: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=910717 - how do you put a compiled package into this form?12:44
\9so you just have one device12:44
noizexikonia: I don't know, it's fresh installation and I thought it should work out of the box, I installed clang packages and just can't get it to work12:44
ikonianoizex where did the clang package come from ?12:44
\9ankit: are there any volume bars present? are the headphones currently plugged in?12:44
ikonianoizex: you can't get it to work as your environment is not looking in the right places, setup your environment12:44
ankit\9 yes12:45
\9so it's there, and is not muted?12:45
\9your 'yes' doesn't really tell which question you said yes to12:45
ankitvolume bars are presents and headphones are plugged in12:45
sacarlson2codepython777: I've only made 2 deb files but it's been some time.  the methods should still be in my github on those projects12:46
ankitand Headphone is not muted in alsamixer12:46
\9what if you unplug the headphones?12:46
pavlushkasuddenly my ram and swap is getting saturated, so I closed the browser and other apps, now running only Hexchat, file browser and terminal, but the resource is still almost zero, have 2 GB ddr2 ram, 2 GB swap on intel celeron 540m processor, running Xubuntu 16.04, 64 bit.:(12:47
ankit\9 headphones gets muted and speaker bar gets unmuted12:47
\9ok so the sound card is working fine12:47
Tex_Nickankit: yeah unplug the headphones, they usyakky mute the speakers12:47
\9my guess would be physical damage if they don't work while headphones are unplugged, but i cannot tell for sure12:48
\9we've reached the end of my knowledge12:48
noizexikonia: will check what libs it links and why it doesn't find standard library defs, thanks anyway12:48
ankitTex_Nick any idea??12:49
Tex_Nickankit: let me scroll up a bit to see what your original post was12:50
ankitTex_Nick sure12:50
sacarlson2codepython777: I used a very simple script to make a deb file https://github.com/sacarlson/Backdoor/blob/master/make_deb_git.sh12:51
codepython777sacarlson2: if i want to install in /opt, - how can we change it?12:52
sacarlson2you basicly just setup the package dir as if it was root and put /opt/... whatever contents you want12:53
sacarlson2then run the script as far as I recall12:53
egrainare there ia32-libs packages? i found some tutorial for my CEWE Fotobuch problem, but the packages they want me to install she doesn't find. like ia32-libs-multiarch and ia32-libs-gtk. so i'm guessing i need to add another repository. i would appreciate the help, obviously.12:53
Luka00Hello people what is harmful intel_idle.max_cstate=1?12:53
sacarlson2the other part are the startup script and the remove scripts12:53
codepython777sacarlson2: i want to build it for cmake. How do i make sure that ubuntu does not execute apt-get install cmake once my package is installed?12:54
Luka00I continue to have freezing problems and would like to try this solution12:54
sacarlson2you can expand on the script so that it does the compile first then moves the bin into the location you desire12:54
ankitTex_Nick any idea??12:56
Luka00trying not to burn my laptop12:56
ankitTex_Nick ubuntu 16.04 no sound12:56
codepython777sacarlson2: does apt-get compare metadata ?12:57
ioriaankit, have you tried to boot a liveCd 16.04 and test it ?12:57
ioriaankit, try12:58
sacarlson2codepython777: apt-get just uncompresses your set of files and puts them into the locations you setup in the deb file.  it also runs some the scripts that do the init of the setup and also the option to remove12:58
Tex_Nickankit: so you say you only have 2 options, default & HDA Intel, is that in sound settings ?12:58
_28_riaHello, "env|grep XDG_DATA_DIRS" gives some systemwide data dirs (in Ubuntu 16.04), but, when I tried it in Ubuntu 14.04. It doesn't have this env variable, Is there something similar, I could use for this in Ubuntu 14.04? maybe some core utility or some text file in the /proc, or something?12:58
ankitTex_Nick yes12:59
ioriano, in alsamixer12:59
geirhasacarlson2: line 10 may remove more than just ".git files". You should drop the use of grep and xargs12:59
ankitTex_Nick third one is enter device name12:59
codepython777sacarlson2: if a user tells apt-get install cmake, when my cmake is installed - how does it compare the version number? using meta data?12:59
sacarlson2geirha: if it could it didn't seem to remove anything needed as it works fine13:00
sacarlson2codepython777: you specif the version number in the config files.  I would have to read it to remember I wrote this years ago13:01
geirhasacarlson2: It's a bug waiting to happen. The cd commands too, but those are much less likely to occur13:01
ankitioria yes in alsamixer settings13:02
Tex_Nickankit: in system setings.sound you should see some tabs ... Output, Input, Sound Effects ... ??? do you see that ?13:02
ankitfour tabs13:02
Tex_Nickok so on the output tab is that set to analog output ?13:03
ankitOutput, Input, Sound Effects, Applications13:03
codepython777sacarlson2: i was hoping there are better tools for this now...alien?13:03
sacarlson2codepython777: the version is specified here: https://github.com/sacarlson/Backdoor/blob/master/backdoor.debpackage/DEBIAN/control13:03
sacarlson2codepython777: ya there must be as this was the method 2 years ago and I didn't research much when I wrote it as I was in a hurry13:03
kromwellHow do I add a binary I just unpacked to path?13:03
ankitTex_Nick http://imgur.com/XMmh6M213:04
Tex_Nickankit: Output tab ... Play sound through ... Analog Output ?13:04
ankitTex_Nick http://imgur.com/XMmh6M213:04
Tex_Nickok i see the pic13:04
kromwellwhere ~/otp/bin is my binary13:05
kromwellis this correct?13:05
kromwellTo add a binary to the path13:05
\9that is right13:05
\9you should add that to your ~/.bash_aliases13:05
sacarlson2geirha: you are welcome to put in a PR as I no longer support it13:06
codepython777sacarlson2: seems like alien --to-deb is the easiest way13:06
codepython777can't figure out how to tell it to install in /opt though13:06
codepython777also, not sure if alien compiles and then installs or is it a source .deb file that i've to compile?13:07
sacarlson2codepython777: why must it be in /opt?  you can add to the init script to move it I guess13:07
Tex_Nickankit: what is that switch at the right side of the volume control ?13:07
Tex_Nick"Output Volume"13:08
ankitTex_Nick Mute/unmute13:08
codepython777sacarlson2: I'm using everything from /opt - so need it all in /opt13:08
Tex_Nickyeah so it's in unmute ?13:08
ankitTex_Nick yes13:08
sacarlson2codepython777: create a simbolic link in /opt or move it13:09
codepython777sacarlson2: do you know what alien does, when i do alien --to-deb cmake.tar.gz?13:09
codepython777where does it install things?13:09
sacarlson2codepython777: no I don't recall what alien does13:09
codepython777it generated cmake_3.6.0-2_all.deb ?13:09
codepython777how do i peek into it?13:10
sacarlson2I only have a full understanding of how debs work13:10
codepython777how do i look into this .deb file?13:10
sacarlson2you can open a deb file with your file manager from arkive  it's just a standard compressed file13:10
EriC^^codepython777: dpkg -c /path/to/deb13:11
codepython777sacarlson2: it only has ./cmake/Source files it seems13:11
codepython777I want it to have compiled version of cmake13:12
Tex_Nickankit: above ioria asked if you had tried booting into a live dvd, i think that;s a good idea, it would be my first step at this point13:12
sacarlson2no it has to have the standards of deb in it13:12
codepython777how does one convert package-src.deb to package.deb?13:12
codepython777EriC^^: Thanks.13:13
EriC^^codepython777: no problem13:13
ankitokay I will download 16.04 and make a bootable usb13:13
Tex_Nickankit: boot into a live session and hit the "Test Speakers" button13:13
codepython777I want to get a .deb file that has compiled cmake inside it, and installs it in /opt13:13
sacarlson2codepython777: the DEBIAN directory would have to be in the *.deb file or it would not be considered a deb file13:13
ankitis there a way to boot live session without downloading 16.04??13:14
Tex_Nickankit: there is a switch on the headphone jack that disables/enables the speakers, it that switch isn't making good contact, it could keep the speakers disabled,13:15
sacarlson2Tex_Nick: good point ankit it could be a hardware problem not a software one.  any other booted iso to try to verifty that?13:16
egraini think i got i!13:16
egrainthanks for your help, i guess.13:16
dumasis there a known bug in 16.04 with audio? my speakers stop producing sound and i have to log in and out to get it back13:17
sacarlson2dumas: well ankit has been complaining just seconds ago of no sound from speakers but sound with headphones on 16.0413:18
Luka00anyone can tell me how to set intel_idle.max_cstate=1 and how dangerous it is?13:18
Lewoco_Completely off-topic, but is anyone able/willing to answer some questions related to finding rental accommodation is the USA?13:19
cfhowlettLewoco_, ask in #ubuntu-offtopic please13:20
dumaslol my problem is when i unplug my headphones sound doesn't come from my laptop's speakers13:20
ducassedumas: if it works with a relogin you could try restarting pulseaudio. maybe it doesn't properly detect the switch.13:22
Tex_Nickankit: i understand that you want to get it fixed fast, and prefer to not have to burn a live dvd, however a live dvd can sometimes be your best friend13:23
ankitsure thanks13:23
dumasTex_Nick, ducasse: could this maybe help? >https://github.com/yktoo/indicator-sound-switcher13:26
sacarlson2Tex_Nick: you still use dvd?  doesn't everyone use at least a usb flash to install?  it's even faster to install an iso direct off a standard sata drive13:27
Tex_Nicksacarlson2: lol good point sir, yeah i still burn an optical disk of all my distro installs13:28
sacarlson2Tex_Nick: to each his own, besides saving 30 cents it installs 10X faster.  I haven't had a working dvd reader on my system in some time.  they don't seem to last or just get dirty13:30
Tex_Nicksacarlson2: hmmm well i have some optical drives that are 10 or 15 years old and still work & several hundred dvd disk backups maybe 20 years old or so, that i still read data from at times, autocad files13:32
Tex_Nicksacarlson2: but you're right i shouldn't tell other people to burn dvds HaHa13:33
curlyearsgreets.  Yet another insane booting problem.13:52

ikoniasaying "cannot boot" doesn't help anyone13:53
curlyearsThe BIOS has two places to affect boot priorities.  Ibn the first, it offers a slection of the 250GB ssd, or "other bootable cards inserted" I have the SSD sel;ected.13:54
madhu__f10 : hi13:54
madhu__pintman : Hi13:55
curlyearsin the other, it allows me to select the first, second and third boot priorities.  I hyave all 3 set to "USB-HDD" which is the closest description to what I actually have here.  It still keeps booting from the SSD13:55
madhu__how to install drivers while installing server os 12.0413:55
ikoniacurlyears: most bioss will allow you ro override boot order with F1213:55

ikoniait's not an ubuntu problem13:56

madhu__Popey : Hardware raid controller Megaraid M1115 controller drivers14:02
popeymadhu__: are they not supported by a recent kernel?14:02
=== Murzzilka is now known as murzzilka
madhu__Popey : yes14:02
popeymadhu__: so why do you need drivers?14:03
madhu__Popey : to detect Raid array14:03
curlyearsOK, using CD/DVD creator, how do I tell it to use a .iso to create a bootable install disk?14:03
popeymadhu__: why not 14.04 or 16.04? 12.04 is a touch old.14:03
popeymadhu__: 12.04 goes out of support in less than a year.14:04
madhu__Popey; it is x3100 M5 v3 series. 12.04 will support m4 servers14:04
curlyearsmadhu:  so will all the newer versions14:05
popeymadhu__: you are way better off using a newer version.14:05
OerHeksmadhu__, but you already know it is a fakeraid device14:05
popeyoh, ew14:05
madhu__Popey: My boss said add controller and go head14:05
popeymadhu__: is this an existing 12.04 install? Can you explain?14:06
popeyor a new install?14:06
madhu__fresh install14:06
popeygreat, so use a newer iso14:06
curlyearsgo with 16.0414:06
madhu__The existing software tested in 12.04.14:07
curlyearsmadhu__: how do you have existing software on a fresh install?14:07
madhu__In ubuntu hardware certified. there is not hardware14:07
popeycurlyears: I assume the software they want to install on 12.0414:08
curlyearsmadhu__: how old is your hardware?14:08
madhu__New one x3100 M5 v314:08
\9sounds like you should invest in testing it on 14.04, lest your software winds up depending on an unsupported operating system version14:08
curlyears\9, good point14:09
curlyearsmadhu__: nice model number, who is the manufacturer14:09
madhu__I will check with my vendor14:09
curlyearsOK, using CD/DVD creator, how do I tell it to use a .iso to create a bootable install disk?14:10
ikoniacurlyears: I don't hink you do14:10
ikoniait's a CD/DVD creator14:10
ikoniaare you trying to make a CD/DVD or another usb ?14:10
curlyearsOkonnia:  OK, then how do I use a /iso to create a bootable install DVD?14:10
\9curlyears: if you're on linux right now you can just use dd to create it14:10
\9er, install dvd?14:11
\9wasn't this about usb?14:11
sukhjitsup guys14:11
ikoniacurlyears: ok, so you're making a DVD now14:11
ikonia\9: yes, we randomly jumped to DVD, keep up14:11
madhu__please give me steps14:11
curlyearsikonia:  since I can't get the existing USB to boot, I am going to the obvious backup route, yes14:11
ikoniacurlyears: so if you right click on the DVD image it should give you an option to burn it14:12
curlyearsdo you mean the .iso?14:12
=== alexandr1 is now known as alexandros-C
=== alexandros-C is now known as alexandros_c
curlyearssee, I am hopeless with GUIs.  I never had this much trouble getting along with the CLI14:12
ikoniaplease don't use that excuse14:13
ikoniaas you've struggled to do what we've asked on the command line too14:13
ikoniayou can burn a dvd from the commandline if you want14:13
madhu__Please let me know. How to create ISO with adding new drivers and kernel14:13
madhu__So that I can able to install in the future14:14
sarbojitmadhu__, you dont need to create an ISO... ubuntu comes with a bootable iso.14:14
sarbojityou can use usbnetbootin to create a bootable usb stick though14:15
madhu__Sarbojit : Some times we need to add new hardware drivers and new kernal14:15
madhu__in case if not support exising releasaed image14:16
sarbojitmadhu__, it is "kernel" and not "kernal" :-) by the way what exactly you're trying to achieve ?14:16
curlyearsOK...when I click on the .iso, it pops me up in CD/DVD Disk Creator.14:16
ikoniamadhu__: lets try to make this easy14:16
ikoniamadhu__: have you tried installing 16.04 on your current hardware, yes/no14:16
madhu__No yet14:17
Desucurlyears: do you want to use a usb stick?14:17
ikoniamadhu__: do that14:17
sarbojitgood old flowchart way !14:17
ikoniamadhu__: if it fails/has problems - tell us about them14:17
madhu__thank you14:17
curlyearsWhen I choose the USB as the source, it shows mwe the contents of the USB, which appear upon casual inspection to be correct for an installer disk14:17
ikoniacurlyears: can we cut to the chase here14:18
ikoniawhat do you need help with ?14:18
madhu__Last question; there is a possibililty to add third party drivers while installing os.14:18
ikoniamadhu__: yes,14:18
madhu__Like that any ption in ubuntu14:18
ikoniamadhu__: in ubuntu ? are you not using ubuntu ?14:18
curlyearsbut it won't let me select the DVD drive, even though there is an empty DVD loaded, and the system will show me the blank directory of the DVD.  The system, when I place the DVD in the tray and close the rtray, tells me it can't open the drive, it is already selected.14:19
ikoniacurlyears: burn it on the command line14:19
sarbojitmadhu__, what is the distro you're using?14:19
ikoniacurlyears: you say you're happy with that - do that14:19
ikonia!install | curlyears14:19
ubottucurlyears: Ubuntu can be installed in lots of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall - Don't want to use a CD? See http://tinyurl.com/3exghs - See also !automate14:19
sarbojitand to answer your question, it is possible to add 3rd party drivers while installing the OS but make sure proper config files are done so new OS finds them after a reboot14:19
ikoniacurlyears: read the URLs - and I mean read them rather than skim them14:19
curlyearsikonia:  using dd?  I don't think I have ever burned a DVD using dd14:19
ikoniacurlyears: no, thats not how you burn to a cdrom14:20
madhu__I try both 14.04 and 16.414:20
popeygood idea madhu__14:20
madhu__Update you after installation.14:21
madhu__Thank for all14:21
neil_where would I ask about a java problem?14:21
ikonianeil_: or ask #freenode how to use alis and search for channels14:21
neil_ikonia, thanks14:22
jattin #java14:23
curlyearsikonia:  those pages don't cover upgrading from 14.04 to 16.0414:23
ikoniajatt: no - in hava14:23
ikoniacurlyears: thats not what you said you where doing14:23
ikoniacurlyears: you said you wanted to make bootable media14:24
ikoniacurlyears: then it jumped randomly to dvd14:24
ikonianow it's randomly I want to upgrade14:24
curlyearswell, that is what thefirst link pulled up, instructions on upgrading14:24
ikoniacurlyears: you need to give real inforamtion14:24
ikoniacurlyears: right - so thats not what you are doing, so ignore that, and move to the next one14:24
ikoniacurlyears: are we really having to filter documents for you ?14:24
curlyearsikonia:  I went to second URL, followed the directions step by step, ran into the same problem as before.  It won't let me select the DVD drive the blank disk is in.  The DVD is listed in the choices pulldown, but it is greyed out14:28
ikoniacurlyears then either your device is not a DVD burner, or the media is not usable14:29
ikoniacurlyears: you can use the command line if you want to make it happen and see what error you get14:29
curlyearsikonnia:  and yet the DVD burner exists in the launcher bar, and when I click on it, I see an empty disk14:29
ikoniacurlyears: doesn't mean it sees it as a burner14:30
ikoniait can read, can it write....14:30
curlyearswhat conmand line is that?14:30
ikoniacurlyears: I'm sure you can look it up14:30
ikoniayour familier with using the command line more than the gui14:30
curlyearsWhy would it not see it as a burner?  It *IS* a burner14:30
ikoniacurlyears: did you check the media ?14:31
ikoniacurlyears: is it a CD or a DVD14:31
ikoniado you have another one to verify14:31
curlyearsi pointed out that that was in the past (about 6 years in the past)14:31
curlyearsit's a DVD blank.  Yes, let me try swapping the disk for anopther14:31
ikoniacurlyears: you absorb an awful lot of time with your problems and the way you address them, so I'm not going to do the leg work for you - I'll help you, but I'm not going to read documents for you14:31
curlyearsswapped another disk in.   No joy.   System sees it, recognizes it as a DVD+R, but the burner I get when clicking on  the .iso has that drive greyed out in the selection menu14:34
curlyearsikonia:  I looked at the two documents you linked, nothing in them helped.  You tell me to use the command line, I say "How do I do that?"  and you start complaining about doing my reading for me.  Point me to a doc or tutorial14:35
ikoniacurlyears look up the command yourself14:36
curlyearsWHAT command?  I know of no way to look up a man entry by describing what you want to do.14:36
ikoniacurlyears: ahh it's not mounting the usb is it14:36
ikoniacurlyears: google how to burn dvd's on the command line14:36
ikoniacurlyears: sorry - the DVD14:36
ikoniacurlyears: you wont be able to burn to it, if it's trying to mount it14:37
ikoniaeg: when you click on it to see if it's empty,14:37
curlyearsthe USB is the source of the .iso.  it is mounting it and reading it just fine14:37
ikoniacurlyears: check this http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/burn-a-dvd-on-ubuntu14:37
curlyearsit automatically shows a DVD or a USB in the launcher when you  insert them.   How do I disabl;e that?14:37
ikoniaI assume you're using 16.0514:38
skinuxI just tried executing a JAR, I got a dialog telling me to set executable bit. I forgot how to do that. Help please?14:40

curlyearsno, I am using 14.04.4, as I have stated repeatedly.  I am attempting to upgrade to 16.414:41
ikoniacurlyears: there is no upgrade path until 16.04.114:41
paranoidabhiI am shifting from hdd to ssd on the same very machine. I need to reinstall packages. How can I do this with apt? That is create a list of a packages and then install again.14:41
curlyearsikonia;  well, then, I guess I'm trying to INSTALL 16.04 over 14.04.414:42
ikoniacurlyears: so you want to do a clean install ?14:42
curlyearsikonia:   yep14:42
ikoniacurlyears: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/burn-a-dvd-on-ubuntu so that is still valid14:42
curlyearsikonia:   step two contains the following:  16.04 LTS no longer comes with a CD/DVD burner, so using the Ubuntu Software Store, search for ‘Brasero’ and click ‘Install’.14:43
ikoniacurlyears: right - so again, ignore that step14:43
ikoniabut it wouldn't hurt to verify14:44
ne8cfldid I do this smart ctl test right? are those values ok? http://paste.ubuntu.com/19773389/ i can't read anything out of it14:46

ikoniacurlyears: how about the full dtails14:47
ikoniacurlyears: as I've asked you14:47
Desuthat can probably be fixed14:47
ikoniacurlyears: what is the exact name of the image14:47
curlyears...amd64.iso is all Braseros is showing me.14:48
ikoniacurlyears: what is the name of the iamge14:48
curlyearsI can't seem to copy it from the USB stick, ikonia.  WHen I try to highlight the filename for a copy, it just selects the entire image, including the little icon of the DVD.  I don't think I can paste that here. can I?14:49
ikoniacurlyears: what is the name of the iamge14:49
curlyearsubuntu-16-04-desktop-amd64.iso     (I had to switch back and forth between the windows and manually copy that, copy & paste wouldn't work14:51
ikoniayou could just type it14:51
ikoniait's 30 chars14:51
curlyearsikonia:  it's too long for me to remember accurately14:51
ikoniacurlyears: have you checksummed the image14:51
curlyearsI *DID* just type it14:51
ne8cflidk I think I got hdd problems. since i reinstalled my os I just get problems. yesterday my system wouldn't boot up anymore [initctl: Event failed]. after another reinstall ubuntu keeps freezing on me14:51

curlyearsI had strongly hoped that instaling 16.04 would have gone much more smoothly than this )-:15:12

* curlyears smakcs ikonia around a bit with a small trout :p15:13
ikoniaerrr no15:13
ikoniaI'm not messing around15:13
ducassecurlyears: just curious - why can't you always copy and paste long file names?15:13
ikoniayou need to tighten up how you use your system and how you request help15:13
curlyearsducasse:  when I am looking at, for example, the USB stick from the GUI, if I click on the name under a file, it insists on highlighting the small icon above it.  That won't work if I try to paste it to a command line.15:14

brohanHello. I have a laptop that the hdd failed. I am getting ready to do a fresh install of ubuntu with a 120GB ssd, and 750GB hhd. This computer has uefi / secure boot. What is the best setup for me on install?15:16
curlyearsI understanmd what you're telling me about tightening up how I ask for help, but have no clue what you're telling me about "tightening up" how I use my system, Ikonia15:16
ikoniacurlyears you make a lot of mistakes, your system appears to have problems, etc15:17
brohanThere will be NO dual boot with Win etc. Do I disable secure boot? I figured 1GB for /boot, 16GB for swap, the rest (113GB) for / and then /home on the 750 hdd15:17
ikoniabrohan: 1GB for boot is crazy big15:17
curlyearsikonia:  yes, I do make a lot of mistakes.  I am a disabled 63 year old Olde Phart.  So sue me.15:18
ikonia16GB for swap is a huge ammount, are you using syspend15:18
brohanikonia: ok. What do you recommend15:18
sacarlson2brohan: it's been some time for me but it seemed easy on my last install with 14.04 for uefi most important was to setup my bios to be in that mode I think.  the boot auto detected it and did most of the rest15:18
curlyearsMy system does have a lot of problems, most of which are NOT my fault (some of which are, though, to be honest)15:18
ikoniacurlyears: ok, so you need to tighten that up15:18
ikoniacurlyears: pay closer attention15:18
brohanikonia: my laptop has 12GB memory, I thought swap should double that?15:18
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest29806
ikoniabrohan: no no no, thats a long dead model15:18
brohanikonia: ok, how much for boot and swap so you recommend, given the 120GB ssd15:19
ikoniabrohan: no more than 500mb for boot - max15:19
curlyearsIknoia:  I have tried to do everything you (and others) have told me to do as you have told me to do it.  It doesn't always result in the expected results.  How is that my fault?15:19
ikoniabrohan: are you planning on ussing syspend/hibernate15:19
brohanikonia: yes15:19
rypervenchecurlyears: If you click on a file, then press F2, it will let you rename it, out it also highlights the file name, so you can then copy it. After using ctrl+c, you can click off of the file or press enter or esc I think to not rename it15:20
ikoniacurlyears: it mostly doesn't result in the right result because you don't do exactly what you are told/read the instructions properly15:20
brohanikonia: or . .  maybe not since I now have the SSD15:20
=== Guest29806 is now known as involved
ikoniabrohan: ok, so if you need to use suspend/hibernate, you need 12GB so it can dump all your ram into swap, if not, no more than 3 GB of swap15:20
involvedi am in a live session of ubuntu15:20
involvedi am going to install that and in the first step i get this error15:21
rypervencheinvolved: H there. Can you ask your question in one message? (It makes it easier for people to follow)15:21
brohanikonia: Gotcha.With having my size ssd, it wouldn't hurt to have that much swap would it?15:21
involvedThis machine's firmware has started the installer in UEFI mode but it looks like there may be existing operating systems already installed using "BIOS compatibility mode". If you continue to install Debian in UEFI mode, it might be difficult to reboot the machine into any BIOS-mode operating systems later.15:21
involvedIf you wish to install in UEFI mode and don't care about keeping the ability to boot one of the existing systems, you have the option to force that here. If you wish to keep the option to boot an existing operating system, you should choose NOT to force UEFI installation here.15:21
ikoniabrohan: define hurt ?15:21
ikoniabrohan: it will use up your space, how much space you have on your system is your risk/problem to manage15:21
involvedForce UEFI installation15:22
brohanikonia: cause me to now have enough space on ssd for /boot and /15:22
ikoniabrohan: ???15:22
involvedwhat should i do in this step ?15:22
ikoniabrohan: you have 120GB ssd, you use 12GB on swap, you have 120GB - 12GB15:22
ikoniabrohan: surely you can work if you have enough space for your other file systems /15:22
brohanikonia: exactly, 108GB for boot and / seems enough to me15:23
ikoniabrohan: so you know boot is 500mb15:23
brohanikonia: /home will be on my 750GB hdd15:23
ikoniabrohan: so you've got 120 - 12GB, -500mb15:23
ikoniabrohan: so do you think your root file system will fit in over 100GB of SSD ???15:23
brohanikonia: correct, seems plenty for root to me :-)15:23
brohanikonia: given that I understand ssd work best when less than 50% of space is used15:24
ikoniabrohan: I don't think thats true15:24
rypervencheinvolved: Do you need the other operating systen or are you wiping the whole drive?15:24
sacarlson2involved: hard to answer that without knowing what you have left on the drives that you might want to keep15:24
curlyearsikonia:   you have been extremely helpful to me over the past several months, and for that I thank you.  I do the best that I can, rather than just roll up in a ball and wait to die as many people in my circumstances do.  I apologize fornot being right smack on top of things.15:24
ducassebrohan: you don't need swap for suspend, but you do for hibernate.15:24
ikoniacurlyears: you don't have to be on top of things15:25
brohanikonia: if you had that drive setup and were installing a fresh ubuntu, how would you set it up15:25
ikoniacurlyears: you do need to pay more attention and do more research15:25
involvedsacarlson2, i need to other operating systems also15:25
ikoniacurlyears: eg: you hadn't really done anything before coming here and asking "why can't I boot"15:25
brohanikonia: I don't do anything out of the ordinary,not a gamer, video editor, etc15:25
sacarlson2involved: oh like dual boot windows or something?15:25
rypervencheinvolved: Then DON'T choose to force UEFI.15:25
curlyearsikonia:  I do pay attenion.  My high levels of untreated chronic pain make the sort of accuracy and precision needed to this difficult for me to accomplish.15:26
involved acarlson2, i have windows  7 and ubuntu 14.0415:26
ikoniacurlyears: I don't believe you do pay attention, thats just my personal opinion though15:26
sacarlson2involved: ya I have to agree with rypervenche if you plan to boot any other systems you should abort this install15:26
ikoniabrohan: something like /=25GB, /boot=500mb, swap=12GB, /home=the rest15:26
ikoniathat way you system will be fast,15:27
involvedsacarlson2, what should i do then ?15:27
ikoniathen mount your big disk on other directories, like /home/user/media (if you wanted somewhere to put your videos for example)15:27
sacarlson2involved: does windows boot from uefi?  I don't know enuf about windows 7 to help any farther15:27
curlyearsikonia:  thqt is NOT true!!!!   I spent *DAYS* tyring to figure out what the problem was.  It never occureed to me to unplug the 3TBdrives and set the BIOS out of EFI mode, since when I installed th drives, not being in EFI mode caused TONS of troubles15:27
brohanikonia: Thank you :-)15:27
ne8cflcd ..15:27
ikoniacurlyears what about today with your non-booting usb15:28
curlyearsI folloed dozens of suggestions from the more knowledgeable members of tyhe channel, all to no avail.  Not their fault, and not mine.  Apparently this MB has a strange BIOS on it15:28
involvedsacarlson2, i installed one time and it is my twice times because i got this error that grub cant install in the end of installation15:28
curlyearsikonia:  I fought with that all yesterdfay afternoon, and all this morning15:28
ikoniacurlyears but what have you actually done15:29
Dandelsikonia, stop being an asshole15:29
ikoniaDandels: please don't call me names, and don't use that language15:29
sacarlson2involved: does windows still boot in this present bios mode?15:29
curlyearsI asked one question that, I believe, you resp[onmded to with "We don't support your BIOS here."15:29
involvedi cant boot with my other OS now i just can use live session15:29
ikoniacurlyears: right, but you hadn't tried the other things, eg: verifying the usb, verifying the image, building a DVD, etc15:30
sacarlson2involved: most bios are setup to run in compatible mode (old mode)15:30
involvedsacarlson2, i cant boot any of my oSs15:30
ikoniacurlyears: it's ok not to know, but you would really benifit from trying a little more on the actual understanding of how something works/the fix, rather than just asking for a fix15:30
ikoniacurlyears: everyone learns, so it's no problem starting at the bottom of the information tree,15:30
involvedi have my drivers from ubuntu and windows7 but i cant boot to them15:30
rypervenchecurlyears: See my private message, please.15:31
sacarlson2involved: sounds like you changed your bios to uefi and now windows will no longer boot.  you would have to put bios back in compatible mode to get windows working first. then install ubuntu in that mode not uefi more15:31
curlyearsup until today, I *COULDN'T* nuild a DVD, I didn't have an available DVD writer drive.  As for "verifying" the USB, as I have tried to explain, I am alone ehere with *ONE* computer.  I have no one I can just pop in on and ask to use their computer to check my USB thumb out15:31
involvedi looked for uefi mode in bios setting but i couldnt find that15:32
ikoniacurlyears totally understand that, but you didn't try a DVD, until told to, you didn't check the iamge, until told to etc,15:32
sacarlson2involved: the other posibilty is you corupted the /boot section of uefi to make windows not boot if windows was installed that way. in that case I'm not sure what you should do.  as I said I'm not a windows guy15:32
involvedin advanced mode15:32
ikoniacurlyears: again, it's not a problem to not know, but you'll knwo a lot more if you read a full article for example and discard what you don't need, rather than just cut to the bit you want15:32
involvedsacarlson2, i didnt do any change on bios setting15:33

involvedsacarlson2, what is problem then ?15:34
involvedsacarlson2, at first i could choose between uefi and bios mode but now i cant choose15:36
curlyearssacarlson2: what do you mean, exactly, by "now I can't choose?"15:37
involvedcurlyears, when i enter f12 i directly see install ubuntu15:38
sacarlson2curlyears: I don't remember saying that, can you give me a time stamp?15:38
involvedcurlyears, i cant choose between uefi and bios mode15:39
curlyearssacarlson2: you didn't, involved did. Apologies15:39
curlyearsinvolved:  are the choices greyed out?15:40
sacarlson2curlyears: np15:40
involvedcurlyears, i cant see choices i just see try ubuntu and install ubuntu after f1215:41
curlyearsOH!   you're looking in the wrong place, I think, involved.  You need to reset your system, and hold down the "delete" key until you see a message that says something like "prepare to enter setup"15:41
curlyearsthen you have to find which setup menu has the UEFI selection in it15:41

involvedcurlyears, i didnt see EFI there in advanced mode15:59
sacarlson2involved: all I could find in short notice that should be similar to what you would need to do to boot both windows 7 and ubuntu16:00

curlyearshmmm....UEFI was around before 2012, for sure.  Strange.16:01
involvedcurlyears, what is your idea ?16:02
sacarlson2involved: it's also posible you might be able to flash the bios, but that could be risky16:02

sacarlson2involved: this give you some clues for bios flash https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qqf45klqvUA16:05
ducassedstarh: vnc does not work with unity16:05
curlyearsinvolved:  you'd need to go to the Website for Phoenix, look to see if there is an update available for your specific BIOS versino  number, download that and probably a special program to install it.  *WARNING*  if *anything* goes wrong with a BIOS flash attempt, your comuter essentially becomes a brick16:05
dstarhducasse thanks was coming to that conclusion16:06
dstarhguess I'll fire up gnome16:06
ducassedstarh: not gnome or kde either, you can't have 3d accel.16:06

involvedsacarlson2, you mean i should install new version ?16:22
sacarlson2I don't think I would as windows ran ok with what you had.  if you have any hope to get what you already have running it's best to keep the original biow16:23
ducasseinvolved: only idea i've got is to load setup defaults, that should return it to a sane state16:23
sacarlson2involved: I had to flash mine one time I forget why oh was to get some virtual mode working that old bios doen't support16:24
sacarlson2I needed virtual modes to better support docker16:24
involvedducasse, i did factory defaults but any result16:24
involvedsacarlson2, it is not a risk ?16:25
ducasseinvolved: what happens when you try to boot from the hard disk?16:25
curlyearsinvolved:  flashing your BIOS is *ALWAYS* risky.  ANy errors will lead to your computer essentially becoming an expensive briick16:25
sacarlson2it's a bigger risk if you hope to get a drive that is already installed to work on another bios.  a new install will sense the bios and adjust what is needed at install time16:25

brmmm3Hi, what is the best practice to manage shared data on a multiuser desktop? I've got a desktop for several users, encrypted homes, and a separate partition with shared data (pictures, music, videos, documents, etc.). Problems are always wrong access rights for new files. When user foo creates a file then file has user and group foo. Because user bar has wrong group then this user can't access this file. How do I solve such problems?17:44
MrMessy_after installing TLP for battery saving on laptop, xrandr can't detect my HDMI monitor. I uninstalled TLP and  it still not working. Tried 2 different monitors with different cables. Everything was working before TLP install. Any ideas?17:45
sacarlson2brmmm3: maybe setup groups that all your shares will be a part of and setup ssh servers on each that have a shared user name that is part of that group17:47
sacarlson2brmmm3: with ssh you can use sftp to move or sync files between units17:48
chudakGood morning all!  I am wondering if RAW ubuntu desktop image can be found somewhere?17:49
brmmm3Why use ssh or sftp when all drives are on the same computer???17:49
sacarlson2brmmm3:  oh when I saw multi user I assumed more than one computer.  then all the same with the groups17:50
sacarlson2brmmm3:  just skip the ssh part17:50
sacarlson2brmmm3: create a share group and any file that a user wants to allow other to share they would set that file to that group17:51
brmmm3I currently have "solved" it using a unique group for all users. The setup is that user foo is member of groups foo and users and group bar is member of groups bar and users. But every time a user, e.g. foo creates a file the file gets user and group foo.foo.17:51
brmmm3So user bar cannot access this file17:51
brmmm3How can I force Linux to create all files on the special partition for shared data to have always group users17:52
dharmaHi, i rebooted ubuntu in recovery modebut now i have a prompt and no clue17:53

dharmaor i'll just wait til i get my new bigger HDD so i can actually get a newer Ubuntu and install more stuff18:46
GentooisDeathI was thinking maybe tere was some error I didn't notice, which made it unable to boot from USB. And therefor it copied itself to my HD. But it seems like there would be some space used on my HD. And also it took only moments to reach the command line. If it formatted, and repartioned, it seems it would have taken longer18:47

iorianautilus -> preferences -> behavior19:46
MonkeyDustmkquist  open nautilus ... edit, preferences, behaviour19:46
MonkeyDustioria  was faster19:46
dharmai think i should make the recovery CD for vista, and get all my data off, and try a light Ubuntu install19:47
dharmadoes anyone know if Vista or Ubuntu gets installed first?19:47
mkquistMonkeyDust: that's the thing... I dont find preferences...19:47
SourceSlayerAaron, it's still trying to output to nonexistent headphones19:47
MonkeyDustmkquist  under Edit19:48
AaronSourceSlayer, did you put the right user name?19:48
MonkeyDustmkquist  what filemanager is it?19:48
SourceSlayerAaron, my audio used to work fine, could it be a screwed up port?19:48
ducasseSourceSlayer: run pavucontrol and amixer and check the settings19:48
dharmaok vista goes first19:49
mkquistMonkeyDust: nautilus I believe... default for 16.0419:49
dharmamwd can i install LUKS at any time or does it have to be at install?19:49
ceed^mkquist, Menu > Edit > Preferences19:49
ioriamkquist, hover the mouse on left corner19:49
MonkeyDustmkquist  maximimze the window, then click Edit19:50
ducassedharma: if you want to encrypt the root fs you need to do it at install time19:50
dharmai can always put the important data back on the drive, leaving enough space19:50
dharmaducasse, oh19:50
curlyearsBrasero doesn't work,. clicking on the .iso to write a DVD doesn't work, I am told dd won't do it, how in &^%^&$%&*$%*$%   do I do it.?  I've tried what the documents on the ubuntu site have recommended, none of it seems to work19:51
curlyearsI am in 14.04.4 trying to build a usable 16.04 install DVD from a .iso19:51
ioriacurlyears, i don't know why brasero not working, but on cli you can use wodim19:51
mwddharma, luks runs below your fs, so at install, assuming you mean for your system partition19:52
curlyearseither I can't specify the output I want19:52
mkquistioria: no luck.. this is just silly, never had a problem with previous releases..19:52
ioriacurlyears, man wodim19:52
ioriamkquist,  you mean you don't have File Edit View ? etc19:53
ceed^mquist, Do you have Ubuntu set to show the menu in the window bar or the top bar? Try hover the top bar with Nautilus in focus19:53
mkquistioria: nope... doesnt appear to be...  looking19:53
MonkeyDustmkquist  can you show a screenshot ... http://imgur.com/19:54

jingoHello, I've installed Ubuntu on my computer (windows 10) and now after the installation I get: error no such partition entering rescue mode. any idea how to solve this issue?19:55
dharmamwd, thanks that's what ducasse said i think19:55
curlyearsthere are an awful lot of options in wodim, almost none of which make much sense to me.  And how do I specify the input file and the output device?19:55
dharmai have to unencrypt my truecrypt stuff before migrating, right?19:56
mkquistMonkeyDust: http://imgur.com/AUMMN9s19:56
ducassecurlyears: you could try bashburn for a simpler way19:56
ioriacurlyears, wodim -v -eject dev=/dev/cdrw  (or sr0, or dvd) speed=8 image.iso19:56
mkquistMonkeyDust: I must have set something incorrectly...19:57
MonkeyDustmkquist  looks different from my nautilus, in unity ... the arrow icon on the right, what is that19:58

Anygma`i would like help finding python on ubuntu 16.421:50
\9what does finding python mean here?21:50
tgm4883Anygma`: 'which python'21:51
Anygma`python 3.5.221:51
k1l_Anygma`: its already included. what is the real issue?21:51
Anygma`how to find it, it's not in the menu21:51
bekksAnygma`: python is a terminal application, its not in the menu.21:51
k1l_Anygma`: what do you want to do? python is not a program like a brwoser21:51
Anygma`i understand it's supposed to be there but i'm not a programmer, my son wants to learn...21:51
\9it is there21:52
\9every system has python21:52
Anygma`and idle?21:52
\9that you'll have to install21:52
multifractalbuild failed with: "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lboost_thread". But according to this I have boost http://paste.ubuntu.com/19825094/. How do I proceed?21:53
Anygma`i looked on the net and there are direction for installing idle on ubuntu 14 but i did search for idle for 16.4 and it's not in the software list21:53
ikoniamultifractal: what are you building21:53
tgm4883!info idle | Anygma`21:54
ubottuAnygma`: idle (source: python-defaults): IDE for Python using Tkinter (default version). In component main, is optional. Version 2.7.11-1 (xenial), package size 2 kB, installed size 19 kB21:54
multifractalikonia Caffe ML library21:54
ikoniamultifractal: is there an ubuntu package for it already21:54
reisioAnygma`: it's in the default repos, AFAIK; apt-cache search idle; apt-get install idle21:54
ikoniamultifractal: so you need to what it's trying to link against, it will probably be something that it's building itself, thats failing, so it doesn't exist, so it can't link to it, or it could be just a generic library thats missing21:55
ikoniamultifractal: also look where it's trying to find the library21:55
Anygma`wow, i though ubuntu 16 was using python 3, but typing python in the terminal told me it's using 2.7.1221:56
ikoniaAnygma`: parts will use python 321:56
ikoniasome apps will depend on python 221:56
tgm4883Anygma`: if you want python 3, type python321:57
\9Anygma`: the python command is python 2, to use python 3, use python321:57
\9there's two versions of python installed on the system (unfortunately)21:58
Anygma`ah k21:58

Jordan_Usnkcld: Pulseaudio in Ubuntu is run as a user service rather than a syatem wide service, and it looks like upstart is stuill used for managing user sessions / services (though I may be misunderstanding that last bit).22:27

_28_riareisio: like, in Ubuntu, global settings dir is /etc, but on some other unix system, I forgot, some bsd type it's /var/etc, On ubuntu - mounted disks show up under /media, but on some unix systems they show up under /mnt. etc. I need some way to determain it, so my program, that I write, knows where to put different types of files crossplatformly.22:30
Jordan_Ujohntittor2000: Try changing the boot order in your BIOS. Explicitly try booting from each drive, even if you don't think that drive could have grub installed on it.22:30
johntittor2000Jordan_U: But it boots my other OS’s22:31
Jordan_Ujohntittor2000: Unless it's prohibitively difficult it's usually an easy thing to try that will often get you back into Ubuntu where we can diagnose and properly fix the problem permanently.22:32
johntittor2000Jordan_U: I tried, but it only boots my other linux. I’ll try to probe ubuntu from my other linux’s grub22:34
Jordan_Ujohntittor2000: If it is prohibitively difficult then please boot a GNU/Linux system (like an Ubuntu liveUSB) and run boot info script: https://github.com/arvidjaar/bootinfoscript and pastebin the RESULTS.txt it produces.22:34
wheathhi all I installed lubuntu and it sees my wifi, I connect, it asks for password, I give it, then nothing happens22:35
wheathany ideas what I doing wrong?22:35
ax562can someone help me with this?22:38
ax562usually if I had that problem, turning off fastboot would resolve the issue22:38
ax562but at the moment fast boot is off22:39
ax562any ideas?22:39
OerHeksax562, if you claim that the 1st clue 'fastboot/hybernate' is not the issue, then the 2nd one: The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state.22:41
OerHeksgo back in windows and filechk the drive22:41
ax562yeah I went into power options, change what power button does, and fastboot is off22:42

johntittor2000Jordan_U: I successfully probed ubuntu from the other OS, now I’m booting on Ubuntu.22:45
johntittor2000Jordan_U: that should I do once inside Ubuntu?22:46
reisio_28_ria: 'mount' is probably utterly cross platform22:51
reisioI would be surprised to see something other than /etc/ used, but I'm not sure it really matters22:51
reisioif you're making a package, you should make it for the specific package manager22:51
reisioand it won't be an issue22:51
NomadJimIf you're working with multiple screens or terminals, do you need to start an ssh-agent for each one? None of my new terminals can get a connection to the authentication agent if I start a new terminal with screen or start a new terminal with ssh22:53

meggercatHi, I'm trying to find/install Microsoft fonts so my LibreOffice will save my .docx files without any problems. Does anyone know how to do that?22:59
=== rax- is now known as RAX
YankDownUndermeggercat: You can look into downloading WINE/Wine-tricks => in the "WINE Tricks package, heaps of core MS fonts are installed. Otherwise, there are "grey" ways of dealing with the situation.23:01
Khali need register channel23:02
meggercatYankDownUnder, are there no font files available for download?23:02
PiciKhal: see /msg chanserv help register and #freenode.23:02
KhalThanks Pici x)23:03
YankDownUndermeggercat: Check out this particular article...hmm...it might tell you a bit about what you're wanting to know, eh? : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Microsoft_fonts23:03

_28_riareisio: so, I am not aware, using mount, I can determain per/system standard systemwide data paths?23:17
reisio_28_ria: no but you can determine mounted FSes, which I believe you also mentioned23:17
reisiounless that's what you meant by data paths23:17
reisio_28_ria: what are you trying to accomplish more generally?23:18
johntittor2000_Jordan_U: http://pastebin.com/eUYpbcaf23:19
_28_riareisio: no, first of all not everybody partitions their drives and I need to determain not mounted partitions, but standard system dirs. Like global settings go to /etc, executable files go to /bin, profile folder /home, etc. (for example).23:19
kylelazellhow are you all23:20
_28_riareisio: Different (u|li)n[iu]x|bsd systems have different systemwide datapaths defined, and I need to be able to dtermain them, crossplatform23:20

johntittor2000Jordan_U: can’t I just reinstall grub?23:24
oliveira_first time using hexchat23:32
johntittor2000Jordan_U: maybe run boot-repair23:34
reisiooliveira_: hi23:37
reisio_28_ria: /etc and PATH are pretty universal23:37
reisio_28_ria: $HOME should be, too23:38
reisio_28_ria: why do you need to determine them?23:38
theoremhmm, gnome-screensaver doesn't seem to trigger a screensaver.  it does seem to find the correct idle message ---23:38
theoremwhat does gnome-screensaver drive to call a screen blanking and the login after the screensaver ?23:39
reisioyou should only have gnome-screensaver _or_ something else running, not both23:40
theoremreisio: how do I know if something else is running ?23:40
reisiotheorem: ps aux | egrep -i 'screen|lock'23:41
love3Ubuntu makes me cry23:41
Jordan_Ujohntittor2000: Did you ever run boot info script? Re-running grub-install will probably solve the problem, but without diagnosing why it broke in the first place it may just happen again.23:41
theoremreisio: nothing else23:41
reisiotheorem: okay, what's the problem again?23:45
