while i am trying to install vuze in my 64bit sytem, i get this error : '(<unknown>:3392): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_window_get_user_data: assertion `GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed
"
cosi
muhammad can you help me through it?
skhater
ok thanks
harishz
any help on the above error
cosi
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward is currently set to 1
Dr_Willis
harishz: you are using some sort of vuze package from where exafctly?
mjsor
question about open ports : I have a small server that I wrote that works fine when I connect from localhost, but outside machines can't connect. I tried the iptables commands I found in the ubuntu docs to open the port, but no luck. Any tips on places to look for info?
muhammad_
cosi, try this http://www.vias.org/wirelessnetw/wndw_07_06_03.html
Dr_Willis
mjsor: the server is connected directly to the internet? or through a router?
mjsor
dr_willis: directly to the internet.
(it's a linode)
harishz
Dr-Willis: i downloaded it directly from vuze site and saved it in documents
Dr_Willis: I am trying to launch it from there
Dr_Willis
harishz: perhaps you downloade ethe wrong version. Check teh vuze docs/forums for starters would be a giid udea
harishz
Dr_Willis: Thanks
muhammad_
cosi, it assumes u ar getting internet on machine 1 via Ethernet and gives access via wlan interface
mjsor
the command I tried was "iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 18888 -j ACCEPT"
Dr_Willis
mjsor: by default thers no blocked ports at all.
mjsor: You could clear out all the firewall rules and see if it then works
!firewall
ubottu
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.
Tamnakz
can anyone reccomend a torrent client for 8,10 that'll allow me to filter out users with ad chunks?
mjsor
hmmm..
Dr_Willis
Tamnakz: most of them these days support the various blacklistz.. ktorrent does. and qbittorrent does.
Tamnakz: then you could use wine and utorrent if you wanted
muhammad_
I have ubuntu 9.10 installed on my pc, when i check the HDD with ubuntu in gparted, it shows all the 232 GB of the disk as unallocated, what is the problem? sudo fdisk -l shows the partitions on the disk
any help please
Tamnakz
dr_willis right now I'm just using bit torrent client that comes with the package. . . I'm getting an about 7:1 (bs data):(useable data) ratio
optimus_prime
did i miss something
Tamnakz
(bs data) : (useable data)
Dr_Willis
muhammad_: so the problem is that the 2 dont match? or is there a bigger issue?
Tamnakz: never noticed that issue under any clients really.. but i dont torrent a lot of stuff
Tamnakz
dr_willis ok thanks for the help!
brush
hello everybody
Dr_Willis
Tamnakz: the default transmission torrent client - is very basic,
brush
join #ubuntu.hu
almoxarife
Tamnakz: do you have the ports open on the firewall?
muhammad_
Dr_Willis, yes, i want to modify a partition using gparted but it does not read the partition table at all
Tamnakz
dr_willis should I be able to dl another client and pick up the old files?
Dr_Willis
Tamnakz: if you do it right you can.
Tamnakz
almoxarife: you've lost me, ports open? firewall? what?
Dr_Willis
Tamnakz: some even have import other torrents features
Tamnakz
almoxarife: can you elaborate?
Dr_Willis
Tamnakz: i always keep the .torrent files handy. and just tell the other torrent clients to use the same download dir/location. they resume
Tamnakz
ok
almoxarife
Tamnakz: you need to open 2 ports on your machine/router to allow you better thruput with bittorent
Tamnakz
I can activate and update a blocklist
would this likely help?
muhammad_
Dr_Willis, can you tell me how can i repair the partition table so that it shows up in gparted ?
Tamnakz
almoxarife, mind a pm?
mjsor
Dr_Willis: boneheadedness on my end. Server was hardcoded to only listen for things from localhost. Doh! All better now... :)
Dr_Willis
muhammad_: if fdisk -l sees it.. and gparted dont. I would suggest a reboot. and THEN see if gparted sees it properly
muhammad_: sounds like a bug in gparted.
muhammad_
i did that, but it dint help
etag
how can i see windows network shared files from ubuntu ?
Dr_Willis
muhammad_: i would check it out with newer gparted-live cd';s and see if it shows then.. show that its a gparted bug or not.
ZykoticK9
etag, places / network
muhammad_

Someguy771
how do people make their terminal window transparent?
daniskami
inertial: unmount it and re-mount it read-only or reboot into a live system to prevent things from being overwritten first
shazbotmcnasty
How do I lower mouse sensitivity in terminal? I've done "xset m 1 1", and even to "xset m 1/100 1" and it's still terribly fast
etag

Hi!
Nalf
when I try to run at my native resolution things are stretching beyond the bounds of my monitor.. is there anyway to fix that?
Someguy771
I can't see sesson option
daniskami
inertial: there are some utilities available such as ext3undel... good luck
Someguy771
profile preferences.......
daniskami
inertial: unfortunately, ext3 makes it hard to recover files
hotxboy
VLC not working on Ubuntu 9.10. Any fix?
inertial
daniskami: yes I know... i'm a bit upset because I thought I had a different window selected when I was deleting
hotxboy
It launches fine but cannot play media files.
Someguy771
isn't ext3 faster than ext4?
Giggel
Hi, is there a more recent howto for converting a single disc system into a raid1 than the 'rootraiddoc'?
ikonia
Giggel: I wrote a forum post on it it, ages ago, but it's still valid
Giggel
does it involve copying one disc on the other using cp -a?
hotxboy
Hi anyone knows how to get VLC working on Ubuntu 9.10?
daniskami
inertial: happens... if all fails, you can grep the disk for parts of files but ext3 makes your life hard at this point
Giggel
ikonia: does it involve copying one disc on the other using cp -a?
datroubler
hotxboy just installing?
ikonia
Giggel
thanks
ikonia
Giggel: don't be put of by the age of it, it's perfectly valid now
datroubler
another question: anybody nows how i can use skins with pidgin
hotxboy
yes, install by the instructions here.http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-ubuntu.html
datrobler: used this command. % sudo apt-get update
% sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc
TheMusicGuy
I'm looking for a way to group icons in the Gnome panel similarly to how the icons in the systray are grouped, ie. I can move them as a single unit, move them to other panels, etc.
datroubler
hotboxy i did it with the normal software center
LeMoNiCe
c'mon vng -.-
TheMusicGuy
the drawer applet is kind of what I want except that I don't want to have to press a button to see the icons, I just want them to be directly on the panel.
so I guess like a panel within a panel...or something.
Giggel
ikonia: I'm trying to convert my OS disk, not just any random disk
ikonia
Giggel: I know, the guide is still valid
hotxboy
datroubler: i cannot play any media file using vlc.
no response.
ZykoticK9
hotxboy, have you installed ubuntu-restricted-extras?
rawDawg
how do i add a static route to the kernel?
ikonia
rawDawg: route add -p
Giggel
mhh
hotxboy

Official channel logs can be found at http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/ - For LoCo channels, http://logs.ubuntu-eu.org/freenode/
ZykoticK9
hotxboy, search in Ubuntu Software Center or Synaptic - or from cli "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras" (you are using Ubuntu right?
rawDawg
ty
hotxboy
yes
Giggel
ikonia: yours is a short version of the rootraiddoc just without the fixes you have to do to make sure the system still boots I think
rawDawg
where is the route gui?
aaron_liuj
where i can get the opensource networktv?
Dr_Willis
aaron_liuj: im not sure anyone knows what you mean.
hotxboy
zykotick9: installed and still not working.
ZykoticK9
hotxboy, sorry man - i don't personally use VLC so no real suggestions
