Gapagos: so why are u crying nobody is helping you already
Gapagos

Typos_King
subone: can't say myself... anything you may have done prior to that, install/remove/change something?
JuanMarquez
i need Remote Helpdesk Software for IT Technical Support Staff in Ubuntu
subone
Typos_King: could have done an update, but not sure. isnt there a way i can create a new panel in case this one is corrupted somehow?
Slart
!vnc | JuanMarquez
ubottu
JuanMarquez: VNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely. It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX
iustinian
JuanMarquez: client or server ?
Japsu
What's rewriting /var/run/motd? I've emptied /etc/motd.tail and I'm still getting the default motd.
         

Slart
JuanMarquez: there are probably other solutions out there as well
iustinian
JuanMarquez: try rdesktop for cleint
JuanMarquez
two
Japsu
(This is Lucid Beta1)
Typos_King
subone: tried giving it a sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-panel; yet?
Slart
Japsu: I think I've seen something about it in some crontab
Japsu: I don't think it's a lucid specific problem.. but you might want to ask in #ubuntu+1 just in case.. that's the official channel for lucid
subone
Typos_King: just tried that and restarted it, still frozen
JuanMarquez
other option "Libre" for landscape
roach
i have a php site that works on my vps but i cant get it to work on my home ubuntu server. The script tries to open outgoing tcp connections to socks proxies and my server wont allow it
Typos_King
Japsu: you could try checking with -> sudo lsof | grep -i motd;
roach
ok thank you how can i allow the outgoing tcp connections? its killing me
ive been racking my brain for days now
Typos_King
roach: checkin webmin maybe :P
Japsu
Typos_King: wouldn't I have to do that at the exact time of writing? I don't suppose the culprit keeps it open.
Pici
!webmin | Typos_King roach
ubottu
Typos_King roach: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. See !ebox instead.
roach
thank you i was using webmin
Typos_King
!ebox
ubottu
ebox is a web-based GUI interface for administering a server. It is designed to work with Ubuntu/Debian style configuration management. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/eBox
roach
i suppose that is the problem
subone
Typos_King: any ideas?
         

roach
thank you
Typos_King
hehh there then, check in 'ebox' :)
Berzerker
iustinian: new problem, can't connect to any networks
roach
ill install ebox then post if it worked thank you once again
Gapagos
iustinian: how do I kill X because ctrl alt back space (after I renabled it) just logs me out but I'm still in a gui ready to login
Typos_King
Japsu: right, but I thought it was a constant process, thus :)
iustinian
Berzerker: i get that too, have u tried to delete the configured network and make them again ?
Japsu
at the moment I'm suspecting pam_motd.so because the rewriting of /var/run/motd seems to happen at the exact time of login
Typos_King
Gapagos: sudo reboot; :P
Gapagos
any way to avoid a total reboot?
i just want to restart x
not the whole system
Berzerker
iustinian: yup, can't connect to any at all, not even unsecured.
iustinian
Berzerker: network manager logs ?
mmm
hi
roach
mmm: hey
Slart
Gapagos: ctrl+alt+backspace restarts X.. you can open a tty (Ctrl+Alt+F1) and run sudo service gdm stop
mmm
i have router
Typos_King
Gapagos: I think you can kill .... x server.... but ... ahemm... I think it has a restart option too
guntbert
Gapagos: with ctrl+alt+bacspace X gets killed and restarted
rww
Gapagos: Alt-Sysrq-K while you're inside the X server
ubottu: dontzap | Gapagos, guntbert
ubottu
Gapagos, guntbert: To re-enable the Ctrl-Alt-Backspace combination that restarts your X server see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/DontZap

subone: make a new user and try to see
erUSUL
|resetpanel | subone
Gapagos

erUSUL
!resetpanel | subone
ubottu
subone: To reset the panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »
Typos_King
Japsu: have you checked the logs yet for anything? /var/log/syslog or messages
erUSUL
Gapagos: sudo stop gdm && sudo pkill X
