FiveStarGandhi

pasalapu
can anyone help me with the issue
shawnboy
I'm still trying to get DVDs to play in Karmic. Any fresh ideas? I'm getting "error cracking code" errors. Only one DVD in a large collection plays.
BaD_CrC
the gnome auto mounter is telling me to run chkdsk /f twice from a windows computer. i don't have a windows computer to do such a thing.
zus
anyone know how to install ubuntu cloud one in kubuntu?
shawnboy
I've done libdvdcss2 and libdvdread4
burkey
running gnome-gmail but when i send something via email its only opening gmail up with a new mail message with no attachment
         

BaD_CrC
shawnboy: did you install ubuntu-restricted-extras? i haven't had any issues with watching dvd movies since i installed that.
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, yes.
resno
is asterisk much different from asterisk@home?
BaD_CrC
shawnboy: do you have both the canonical 'partner' repo and the medibuntu 'free' and 'non-free' repos in your sources.list?
abhi_nav
pasalapu, see if this anyhow helps you http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk this website is down from here now. check if it works from your pc.
pasalapu, its a software to check health of hdd and recover safe data etc etc
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, I don't know. I can take a look. I remember medibuntu showing up on terminal screen at some point though. I'll look at sources.list.
bobboau
all of those seem to be huge computer takeing over items, which is no what I was looking for, I just want a simple widow with an up/down button for the channels and the ability to type in the channel manualy and have the TV signal display in a window that can become fullscreen with a doubleclick. I don't need time shifting or scheduleing or program guides or playing DVDs, CDs or photo slide shows. but that said, I'm going to try
XBMC, if it works I'll be happy.

I'm trying to troubleshoot an ongoing problem here. I installed 9.10 on a laptop with an Atheros 2413 chip. It was picked up out of box, but it won't connect to my network. I tried several things, but nothing worked. However - if I remove WPA security and have NO security, I can connect... why?
Lxndr
I have a Microsoft Sidewinder game pad installed. Is there a way I can remap a button (or buttons) on the game pad to keyboard inputs? If so, how?
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, partner, yes. medibuntu, nowhere in sources.list. I remember reading Jaunty required that, but does Karmic still require medibuntu repo in sources.list?
BaD_CrC
shawnboy: http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/VDtd6jgV
bobboau
ok, just installed XBMC and is segfaulted...
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, so, if I add the medibuntu to my sources.list, then what?
bazhang
bobboau, from the PPA?
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, update, but then what?
BenHoltz
Hello Everyone, I am having problems with my dell computer hooking up to my TV with ubuntu 9.10
ShazbotMcNasty
shawnboy, you have to do 'sudo apt-get update'
bobboau
from the xbmc repositories
BenHoltz
it displays out of sync.
ShazbotMcNasty
shawnboy, then you should be able to get whatever you are looking for
         

BenHoltz
can someone help?
BaD_CrC
shawnboy: if you have the ubuntu-restricted-extras installed already, just sudo aptitude update; sudo aptitude safe-upgrade
bobboau
followed the instructions here: http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=HOW-TO_install_XBMC_for_Linux_on_Ubuntu_with_a_minimal_installation_step-by-step
for 9.10
BaD_CrC
i like safe-upgrade because it won't pull packages that don't properly resolve dependencies
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, ah, so presumably something will upgrade in ubuntu-restricted-extras after I put in the medibuntu.
BaD_CrC
shawnboy: there's a slight possibility
shawnboy: it doesn't hurt to try. if nothing else, you have more media stuffs in your available software list.
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, do I need to add some key for medibuntu from a keyserver?
SilentBoom
1275 nicks. that took a while to load
ShazbotMcNasty
shawnboy, no
shawnboy
ShazbotMcNasty, ok. thanks.
BaD_CrC
shawnboy: you don't _have_ to, but apt will complain that they aren't a trusted source
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, so I could find that by searching for medibuntu I guess?
ShazbotMcNasty
BaD_CrC, it shouldn't if it's the medibuntu repo
shawnboy, when you do "sudo apt-get update" it will tell you if you need a key

ShazbotMcNasty
it will say what BaD_CrC said "is not a trusted source" etc etc
BaD_CrC
ShazbotMcNasty: you're right. had to double check
bazhang
shawnboy, the instructions for adding the keys should be on the medibuntu.org site
BaD_CrC
hehe, self blog reminder. :) http://john-os.blogspot.com/2009/10/apt-sources-day-1-of-3.html
ShazbotMcNasty
Roasted, do you put in the ssid and enter the correct password?
BaD_CrC
i keep forgetting i wrote that
Roasted
ShazbotMcNasty, yes. If I hook up a USB wireless adapter to this laptop, it works fine. But the onboard atheros does not.
bobboau
I guess I'll try moovida now...
BaD_CrC
i still need to fix a $Bitmap problem on a NTFS partition so i can rescue the data
shawnboy
bazhang, looking now. thanks.
BaD_CrC
is there a chkdisk equivalent for linux?
ShazbotMcNasty
BaD_CrC, yes
abhi_nav
bobboau, lol :D :D :D :D keep it up!!!!! Best of luck!!! haa haa haaaaa
ShazbotMcNasty
BaD_CrC, fsck
BaD_CrC
ShazbotMcNasty: don't tell me... ntfsfix? it don't work.
ShazbotMcNasty
fsck
that's chkdisk for linux
BaD_CrC
ShazbotMcNasty, fsck will repair ntfs partitions?
ShazbotMcNasty
lol probably not
BaD_CrC
i didn't think so
ShazbotMcNasty
you can try it though
BaD_CrC
hmmm
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, bazhang , I typed command from medibuntu site and was told it couldn't find any package with that name (medibuntu-keyring)
BaD_CrC
i'm skeptical
LK
harro, How do I change my xchat ctcp VERSION response.
BaD_CrC
shawnboy: it doesn't need one
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, ok.
BaD_CrC
shawnboy: are you running 32-bit or 64-bit?
bobboau
well I got to say I like the GUI of moovida a billion times more than Myth
ShazbotMcNasty
LK, you have you get a plugin
BaD_CrC
shawnboy: if worse comes to worse, fall back to vlc. vlc will play almost anything.
LK
ShazbotMcNasty, So you can't just specify it in ctcp replies?
BaD_CrC
i just don't really care for vlc's UI
abhi_nav
bobboau, you are funny haaa hohh lol :D :D :D :D
ShazbotMcNasty
LK, well you can change it a little bit
bazhang
!lol > abhi_nav
ubottu
abhi_nav, please see my private message
ShazbotMcNasty
but no not without a plugin
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, that's what I've been trying from beginning (for that very reason).
ShazbotMcNasty
it's not hard to get a plugin though
!lol > ShazbotMcNasty
ubottu
ShazbotMcNasty, please see my private message
LK
ShazbotMcNasty, Where I can I dowloade it then?
bobboau
just installed an opened it, still haven't got the tv to work
ShazbotMcNasty
I've never seen this one :D
LK
download*
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, vlc and mplayer both fail due to "code cracking error" so far on all but one DVD. They're older too so shouldn't be problem.
BaD_CrC
shawnboy: that's quite interesting. have you looked at videolan's or mplayer's websites to see if there's any known issues?
ShazbotMcNasty
shawnboy
BaD_CrC, yes I have. Searched those sites and the ubuntu forums and the web in general. No success so far.

!firewall | Zenker
ubottu
Zenker: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW), or 'iptables' (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo). GUI frontends such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist.
