rumpsy
omkar_: how did you upgrade that, who or where did you see updates for video driver
adimania
hi whenever i run apt-get build-dep it says You must put some 'source' URIs in your sources.list. which URIs are we talking about?
acicula
therianthrope: some sensors work afaik, refer to the thread i linked, i doubt theres much pace in the project of integrating it since a finger print scanner is mostly a gimmick and of little value
omkar_
I already had the drivers downloaded from nvidia site
therianthrope
Also, I am still sort of iffy with Grub. I really dislike the beta version, I made heavy use of locking and passwords. Would I be able to downgrade and restore grub from the live CD if something goes swrong?
omkar_
shall i give u the link?
rumpsy
omkar_: no
mickster04
adimania: well in source.list are a list of sources, they can be packages or sources,
pourya
radar3d: you could try going under System->hardware drivers sometimes you may need to enable the driver.....
         

boss_mc
randomusr: weird, that seems broken.... you could try deleting the xorg.conf entirely (KEEP YOU BACKUP THOUGH) and trying nvidia-settings again
rumpsy
omkar_: may be that's the problem
randomusr
boss_mc: http://pastebin.org/126642
acicula
therianthrope: if you have to ask you'd probably leave grub alone, grub doesnt use passwords by default, unless you set it
omkar_
ya but then which drivers should i install
acicula
you'd best
omkar_
I agree rumpsy because earlier it was working so fine
so clean
therianthrope
The version of grub that comes with Karmic does not support passwords like the one that came with Jaunty.
omkar_
but now it is very sluggish
rumpsy
omkar_: goto that site and read the uninstall procedure and uninstall the current driver
adimania
mickster04: yes. I know that. I ran apt-get build-dep deja-dup and got this error. Which URIs should I add
acicula
therianthrope: what do you mean like
randomusr
boss_mc, i'm in /etc/X11 and I don't see a backup of xorg.conf after running that command
radar3d
pourya there are no drivers liste there when I check
omkar_
but then waht abt the display card drivers
iflema
!broadcom | radar3d
rumpsy
omkar_: install proprietary driver from ubuntu src
ubottu
radar3d: Help with Broadcom bcm43xx can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx
therianthrope
Well, with Jaunty's grub you could "lock" a boot entry to require password entry before allowing you to boot to it. I have a dual boot with Windows 7 and Karmic. Password Protection of a boot entry is not permitted in Karmic's version of Grub.

radar3d STA option with no internet
radar3d
acicula can't run update without network access which is the problem
boss_mc
randomusr: I told you to back it up yourself, but as it generated the same thing you got lucky, back it up manually (sudo mv xorg.conf xorg.conf.bak) and try nvidia-settings
technikfreak
radar3d you don't have a wired lan?
crawler
adimania: the command is actually apt-get install build-dep deja-dup

radar3d
technikfreak no i do not have wired

i keep a backup copy of the b43 fw.

hello. I got a problem with the gnome-volume-control-applet... It seems to use a wrong minimum value. As soon as i move the slider to ~33% it completely mutes the sound. Would anyone be so kind and could help me with this issue? =(
radar3d
yes my laptop works fine

C-S-B-N900
radar3d: i think its the wl driver.
adimania
crawler: build-dep is not a package. it is used to get all the dependencies of a package.
randomusr
peace out kids
C-S-B-N900
i prefer b43
acicula
therianthrope: there is an upgrade from grub to grub2, but not a downgrade option, you can either wait untill the feature is added which is hopefully soon, or attempt to manually remove grub2, install grub and make sure it boots etc
boss_mc
randomusr: it seems that the default xorg.conf is not conformant enough to be read by nvidia's program... strange....
crawler
adimania: oops :S
technikfreak
no that don't work for that
he should use the sta
radar3d
I will check out those links guys
what is STA?
technikfreak
a driver for braodcom devices
radar3d
so what is the general concensus?

In gnome-volume-control, the sound is turned off when the slider for Output volume goes under ~33%. I guess my volume control gets a wrong minimum value ... does anyone know something about this issue?

radar3d in a terminal what is the output from lspci -vvnn | grep 14e4
spunk
Hello! My samba share broke down due to a recent update. I previously shared a mounted filesystem via Samba. Isn't that possible anymore due to the patch?
acicula
spunk: did you try resharing it?
Dr_Willis
spunk: hmm.. you dont share Unmounted fileysstems.. so if you cant share 'mounted' ones - you couldent share anything...
spunk
acicula, I've rebooted a couple of times.
Dr_Willis
spunk: these shares are in /etc/samba/smb.conf ? or user defined shares?
spunk
Dr_Willis, true. The file system is a bit special though; it is a virtualbox shared folder.
Dr_Willis, user defined share. Using Nautilus.
Dr_Willis
spunk: you are using samba in virtualbox? or the Special VIrtualbox 'share' feature thatyou get with the vbox guest addations?
I find it easier to just set theusers HOMEs to all be shared in smb.conf and not use the 'user defined share' stuff
jorgiito
hello
spunk
Dr_Willis, Im running the samba server in a vbox client. And that client has a vbox shared folder mounted. Previously I was able to serve from this client
radar3d
iflema will have to reinstall and check i was frustrated to I wiped the drive to start over
ptrxyz
I guess I have the same issue like this one: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=499719
(gnome volume control mutes sound at ~33%, not at 0% like it should)
That post is way old and doesnt show a solution, but maybe one of you knows something about it? Could anyone be so kind and help me with it?
jorgiito
my computer is muy lento
radar3d
so if I am putting it on a netbook shouls i use the netbook remix or go for the desktop version???
jorgiito
yes
ok
cenquiu
resno
whats the best way to lock a desktop user's access up, restrict apps they can use for example
mickster04
radar3d: its more of a question about personal preference:/
Dr_Willis
spunk: so your samba share is the 'vbox' special share. :) You may need to double check the permissions of the special share
kerim
resno : use guest mode
resno : at the right corner of desktop
spunk
Dr_Willis, correct. I mount the vbox shared folder to folder "a", say, and then i share folder "a" with samba.
radar3d
what is the diff i would like to keep them the same but the netbbok drive is a 16g ramdrive
kerim
resno : u will see
resno
kerim: i see that, but it doesnt login, i just logs me out
kerim: so i am not sure if i am doing something wrong
kerim
resno : as u guess normally use for shutdown
spunk
Dr_Willis, I'll try to fiddle a bit with permissions and such. Thanks for your help!
kerim
resno : if u see guest session
acicula
radar3d: netbook remix is ubuntu for small screens and small <4gb disks if neither applies then normal ubuntu will work also
kerim
resno : this protects u
resno : ok ?
resno
kerim: i see guest seesion. but it doesnt login into the guest session
kerim: currently it only locks my screen
kerim
resno : hmmm . It must do
iflema
radar3d very little difference..... mainly optimizations to make thing fit on a small screen
radar3d
acicula, ok thanks iflema I think i will go with desktp version to keep them the same
kerim
resno : another solution press "ctrl + alt + L" at the same time while leaving ur computer
resno : this will lock ur computer
resno
kerim: yea, i dont need that. i am trying to create a secured user.
kerim
resno : ok focus on guess session
iflema
radar3d you can convert Ubuntu to UNR basically with tha addition of 3 packages
kerim
resno : ur question must be guess session
guntbert
!u | kerim please
ubottu
kerim please: U is the 21st letter of the modern latin alphabet. Neither 'U' or 'Ur' are words in the English language. Nor are 'R', 'Y', 'l8', 'Ne1' or 'Bcuz'. Mangled English is hard for non-native English speakers. Please see http://geekosophical.net/random/abbreviations/ for more information.
resno

iflema acicula 2 more easy questions. I have 4 ubuntu boot options and shouls only have two. Looks like I have 2 diff versions installed but I do not that I know of how do I figure it out and get rid of one. Second question how can I change my system to autologin since I selected to used password during install?
kerim
guntbert : ok i will try but i don't give you promise.Because this is my habit
guntbert
kerim: please try :-)
kerim
guntbert : i will try but not promise
iflema
what version of ubuntu? should only have two?
acicula
multiple kernels
radar3d
well ok that was an assumptionon my part but why woudl it be like that? and I found out the auto login already
acicula
autologin is a feature of gdm, set it under system->administration->login screen
radar3d: as a convention updated kernels are added but not removed
you get two options for every kernel, normal boot, and rescue boot
or safe mode, dunno how it is labelled in grub
fuleo
capis
radar3d
how do i remove the older unused kernels so there will be only 2 options?
iflema
(Action) :)
ortsvorsteher
radar3d, try to remove them by using synaptic
iflema
(Action) goodone
guntbert
radar3d: its usually good to keep at least the newest of the "old" ones

I am a bit confused on how to set windows 7 to be the first entry in grub when i boot up
I have applied updates to ubuntu and right now i have 4 entries of ubuntu (newest version, rescue, old version, rescue and windows 7)
radar3d
ok thanks, will be back once I get the netbook reinstalled to get the wireless figured out will try out the links posted earlier first
acicula
z3rongod: you can install an application called startupmanager, that gives you a gui where you can select a default
switch10_
z3rongod: install startup manager,
DasEi
z3rongod: edit /etc/default/grub as root, then run sudo update-grub
acicula
once installed you can find it under administration
wrapster
where can i download skype for i386
gartral
umm.. is lshw borked?
acicula
gartral: no its not
switch10_
wrapster: the skype website
z3rongod
Ok i'll search for startup manager then
wrapster
it has the amd64 version
gartral
acicula: it is when it comes to the i7 860..
acicula
z3rongod: you can install it via synaptic or from a console
ACKT1C

+1 feature that i liked is booting from live cd installing ubuntu and surfing the net at the same time :-D

gartral: then please file a bug on launchpad
switch10_
wrapster: i have it installed on my 9.10 install and it works great....
BenHoltz
hey everyone i need some help with my ubuntu instalation. I have upgraded to the 10.04 version and I'm having problems with grub loading. Can someone point me in the right direction to re-configuring grub?
acicula
BenHoltz: best ask in #ubuntu+1 for beta support
gartral
http://gar.pastebin.com/kQcKbDCB acicula look that over
TViYH
can anyone here tell me the screen parameters to create a screen session, run a command inside that session, and then detach the session
z3rongod
Done! Thank you!
radar3d
the grub you pointed to /etc/default/grub does not have a list of boot options in it to edit
acicula
TViYH: screen and screen -r etc, type man screen to read the documentation
wrapster
switch10_: thats strange.... http://pastie.org/892176
resno
i want to make a user who only has access to programs i allow them to use

wrapster
ah...
ACKT1C
oh the interpid version
BenHoltz
acicula: thank you
abhi_nav
resno: try apparmour
jrib
TViYH: why do you want to do this?
acicula
TViYH: well you can try piping in screen commands, but it seems kinda odd what you are trying to do
TViYH
jrib: so i can initiate a screen on startup
