ipatrol: Avoid your questions being followed by a trail of "Please, help me", "Can nobody help me?", "I really need this!", and so on. This just contributes to making the channel unreadable. If you are not answered, ask again later; but see also !repeat and !attitude

@cellofellow Yes but in 10.4 this launcher takes care of this, so I would have to execute manually wine but I'm looking for a more elegant solution :D

Cyoor: Some tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel
blakkheim
veleno: why can't you check ifconfig, that would be the easiest way
acicula
first link
aetaric
ipatrol: what does dmsg say about the card?
ipatrol
cellofellow: That's not an option, wifi card or windows
acicula
cellofellow: that one does not work well with N
frankenjesus_
oh wow, I can't believe I didn't see that before
ipatrol
aetaric: Nothing!
veleno
blakkheim: i do that inside a bash script
cellofellow
ipatrol: no, the point is that that's a possible card.
frxstrem
can I encrypt files using a PGP key in Ubuntu?
blakkheim
frxstrem: yes
guntbert
kevalmighty: if you want graphical apps display on your windows machine you need to run an X-Server there

acicula: why would ZaReason sell it then?
frxstrem
blakkheim: how?
undeniably
Someone tell me how to disable the system beep real quick (comand line)
ipatrol

acicula
cellofellow: hell if i know
cellofellow
frxstrem: yeah, that's built in.
frankenjesus_

aetaric
ipatrol: if it says nothing, it is likely the card

frxstrem
cellofellow: I've tried it
blakkheim: I'll try that
blakkheim
veleno: "almost" ok?
aetaric
ipatrol: why do you need N? won't G work fine?
guntbert

hey tonyyarusso would you mind doing a pastebin of '/usr/share/nautilus/ui/nautilus-navigation-window-ui.xml' for me?
acicula
anyway afaik any ralink/atheros/intel chip should be well supported or supported in the future
ipatrol
blakkheim: I *did* that and it failed
fiona_
tonyyarusso, Its "Paddy_NI" btw using my gfs computer :P

acicula
ipatrol: this channel is ussally served by people with technical skills and spare time, something which is normally expensive and hard to come by, so please make some time and patience if you do not at first get the answers you seek?
autoclesis__
are there less problems if you don't dual boot?
ipatrol
acicula: I just want an explanation, if not an answer
Does *anyone
fiona_
Hello would anyone mind doing a pastebin of '/usr/share/nautilus/ui/nautilus-navigation-window-ui.xml' for me?
acicula
ipatrol: how about you ask, instead of demand
aetaric
ipatrol: are you working on a laptop?
ipatrol
acicula: Sorry, im very frazzled
aetaric: No
aetaric
ok, is it a usb wifi card, or pci?
braulio
While executing gem ... (Zlib::GzipFile::CRCError)
ipatrol
aetaric: USB
braulio
invalid compressed data -- crc error
acicula
ipatrol: i understand that, but an attitude wont get you help faster
guntbert
kevalmighty: thats actually windows support - but ... there are several - I use mobaXterm
ipatrol
Sorry
aetaric
awesome. open a terminal
ipatrol
ok
kevalmighty
guntbert: would be eaiser if I can onnect to my server via ubuntu instead of windows?
sine`
what port is ssh and how do i connect from the cli
ipatrol
what next?
braulio
Anybody know what is the problem?
acicula
ipatrol: now i had a look and from what i can tell ralink/atheros/intel chipsets should work well or get support in the future, since their drivers are mostly if not all open source and gpl. I cant recommend a specific model unfortunatly.

Hi! I have ubuntu 9.10 and wine 1.1.41 and Microsoft Windows 2007 enterprise installed. Its working fine, however when I open "my document.docx" word tries to open my.docx and document.docx. Anyone knows a fix for this?
aetaric
ipatrol: unplug the card. plug it back in, and in the terminal type dmesg |tail
ipatrol
acicula: terminal opened
guntbert
kevalmighty: yes - on ubuntu everything you need is already on board
kevalmighty
guntbert: so what i need to do if im on ubuntu?

Yo! Anyone here who has gotten darkstat to work? I have tried, but when I try to load that stat page in firefox, it just loads indefinitly.
kahen
ok... `unzip' is braindead and sets mode 777 on extracted directories. anyone has a suggestion for a (preferably commandline) unzip tool that's NOT braindead?
guntbert
sine`: 22 and you just type ssh -l <user> <target host>
ipatrol
aetaric: ok, done
guntbert
kevalmighty: are you right now?
aetaric
ipatrol: if you could patebin the output...
ipatrol
aetaric: I can't
kevalmighty
guntbert: well dual boot , so windows + linux
ipatrol
Im on an itouch
aetaric

ipatrol
It shows ndiswrapper working, then a USB disconnect
then a reconnect
aetaric
ndis....
kahen
nevermind, 7z wins
frxstrem

kahen
time to uninstall unzip!
aetaric
sorry, that took me back a few years...
guntbert
kevalmighty: on ubuntu you type ssh -X -l <user> <target host> (its a big X) - and then you can execute any graphical app you like -- start with xeyes for fun

backtrack is awesome on the live disk, how well does it run when installed, good enough for a primary OS?
netspooof
ya
ipatrol
aetaric: It did not work
abhi_nav
!backtrack

There are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mintsupport), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), CrunchBang (support in #crunchbang), BackTrack (support in #backtrack-linux)

backtrack is my primary os
and it works fwell

ipatrol
On those installed windows drivers

netspooof
ya i have tried wine
aetaric
wine isn't really for hal....
running_rabbit07
netspoof, thanks, I may give it a try soon.
netspooof
but it is unstable
yourmghq
np0w3r: can you tell me why, when i try to burn like 2gb onto my 4gb disk it says not sane space
acicula
backtrack is not an os meant for permanent use
and is supported in #backtrack-linux
ipatrol
aetaric: This was supposedto work out of the box
acicula
some would call premanent use unsafe even
ipatrol
Am I missing a package or something?
aetaric
ipatrol: this might sound a bit crazy, have you tried reinstalling?
ipatrol
reinstalling what?
aetaric
ubuntu...
netspooof
we can discuss hacking here?
acicula
netspooof: no
aetaric
ipatrol: also what was that model number?
ipatrol
it works on etherbunny
DaZ
netspooof: depends what do you mean by hacking :f
aetaric
ipatrol: you mean an app sees the card?
jason_
mmm, hej, guys, may I ask a question?

i would like to share some techniques of hacking
acicula
ipatrol: find a network cable, plug it in and update to the latest version, maybe that will help
