burkey: you can send picture messages with gmail
SnowmanX11
Typos_King: THis is a solution as well, I have VLC and Mplayer
Typos_King: Mplyer is the most configurable one
burkey
histo: not sure i know it does not compress your photo's when you send them
histo
burkey: you just add them as attachments like sendin any other email. You'd have to compress them ahead of time if you want them compressed. All though compressing jpgs might not get your far.
burkey
histo: ok thanks

Does anybody have a laptop with the Atheros 2413 card running in Ubuntu? I can't seem to get mine working and I'm not sure what else I can do.
         

quietone
Rythymbox doesn't like 2 files in my 26G of audio, it wants to load plugins (i tried but non found). How can I figure out which files are the problem?
histo
Roasted: did you check in System > admin > hardware drivers
Appetite
does ubuntu normally have any firewall at all automatically built in/enabled?
Roasted
histo, no.. ha... but the wireless card was picked up automatically in the network manager. I thought considering it picked up the SSID that it meant the driver was installed?
iflema
Appetite its there but turned off by default
psusi
Appetite, no, nor is one needed
histo
Roasted: not if it needs firmware broadcom chipsets will do everything but connect without the firmware
Appetite
so it is OFF by default? good. was making sure thats not my problem with port forwarding here =\
Roasted
histo, do you know if atheros is in the same boat?
histo
Appetite: its off by default.
Roasted
as broadcom, that is
histo
Roasted: it depends on the chipset and card. are you one the machine now?
Roasted
histo, Im booting it up now.
I have to wonder though, histo, I've never had ubuntu NOT prompt me that hardware drivers were available... not getting too excited....
ll_
prima volta su sta chat
Typos_King
Roasted what does lspci shows it as? broadcomm?
ll_
ubuntiana
Roasted
Typos_King, atheros

ubottu
ll_: Vai su #ubuntu-it se vuoi parlare in italiano, in questo canale usiamo solo l'inglese. Grazie! (per entrare, scrivi « /join #ubuntu-it » senza virgolette)
histo
Roasted: lspci may reveal the chipset
andre_
is twitter working ok??can someone tell me??
ll_
/join #ubuntu-it
Typos_King
I guess the chipset is ... atheros?
histo
Roasted: the other thing I would do is search the forums or help.ubuntu.com for your card. They may have it listed in the tested hardware page.
Scotenna
ok
histo
Typos_King: not necessarily i've seen them with broadcom chips
Roasted
histo, the only thing that comes up in hardware drivers is "software modem". This is an older laptop with a 56k modem on it. :(
SeaPhor
Roasted, can you do a lspci -nn and give a better info on it? just the one line?
Roasted
Typos_King, comes up as Atheroes Communications Inc AR2413 802.11gb NIC rev 01
sumoduno
Typos_King: i still cant fix the NTSF file
Typos_King
right
Roasted
SeaPhor, that does the same thing as lspci...
histo
Roasted: let me check something see what the deal is with that card
Roasted
thanks histo
Typos_King
Roasted what about installing the restricted drivers? have you checked yet in the repositories? -> apt-cache search atheros; shows -> linux-restricted-modules soooo
reflect
does anyone have experience with sun grid engine, aka SGE?
spine55
anyone here get ubuntu installed on their ps3?
Roasted
Typos_King, no, I haven't checked. I've ALWAYS had drivers come throguh hardware manager, so not having them there I wasn't sure where else to go.
Typos_King
sumoduno: got borked? tried a disk cheker from the hiren's cd?
Roasted
Typos_King, so I should install restricted modules?
histo
Roasted: do you know who makes the card? like make/model?
Roasted
histo, Atheros AR2413
sumoduno
Typos_King: ok ill try that. ill have to dl it though
Typos_King
Roasted I'd say yes, they come up when I do a search on atheros
histo
Roasted: they don't make cards
Roasted: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WirelessCardsSupported#By%20Manufacturer
Roasted
histo, that's what LSPCI shows me.
histo
Roasted: let me do some searching
Roasted: is it embedded? or is it a card you put in?
Roasted
histo, embedded. this is a laptop.
Typos_King
sumoduno: is only about 200mbs
DarthPuff
i have a minimal system and i just did apt-get install xorg and apt-get install twm. how do i configure xorg now? when i type startx it takes me to a blank screen. the error says something about xkbcomp. there is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf

histo, I tried madwifi with WICD.......
histo
Roasted: You need to disable something in HAl I believe let me find the forums link
Typos_King
sumoduno: well, you can always watch 'the english patient' again while waiting :)
Roasted
thanks histo
histo
DarthPuff
aha, it failed to load module i810
sumoduno
Typos_King: haha. so after dling it, i burn it on a CD? and run it like a livecd?
Roasted
hmm...
Typos_King
sumoduno: yes, is a bootable iso, it has several choices, actually, boot to mini-xp, which is the live-xp one, or go to the hiren's booot, which is the bunch of other utilitties you can run without full GUI, it has other optioins like load with ntldr, in case ntldr went south and such, so, there you choose which :)
Roasted
how do I get the latest madwifi? Are they in the repos?
Typos_King
(Action) dashes
sumoduno
Typos_King: oh, ok thanks! ill try them.
Roasted
histo, what exactly do I do here? It says disable HAL, but doesn't say how. Install newest madwifi, but doesn't say how...
also, network manager shows up as a black box I cannot click......

Roasted
is atheros one of those companies to avoid if at all possible?
airtonix
Roasted, not really.
Roasted
airtonix, realy? It's looking to be that wtay. Even BROADCOM of all companies works easier than this.

#ubuntu+1 #ubuntu-motu hello, i have a question: i was running a karmic installation.. i somehow managed to change change my release type to eeebuntu after adding some package repos. Recently i added lucid repos and updated most packages. Is there any way to change the distribution release type ? lsb_release -a tells me im still running eeebuntu.
C-S-B-N900
i think a blank keyring migh work.
moosekaka
thats what i did and then i dont get wireless anymore
C-S-B-N900
but goodbye security.
your keyring is blank to unlock?
Tom22
Can someone help? In gparted, from the livecd, I am unable to apply changes after having deleted my windows partiton, it says "/dev/sda1 File System: Unknown" ~ "An Error occured while applying the operations."

C-S-B-N900
moosekaka: tbh, it doesn't sound like an ideal setup.
steven_

almoxarife
greezmunkey: you have synaptic?
moosekaka
ok fine....prob is now i cant get wireless whatsoever
my local roaming is on
what else can i check
steven_
pionar: wgat Qt designer for
greezmunkey
almoxarife: yes, if I remove - purge it there, will it remove all of its dependancies as well?
C-S-B-N900
moosekaka: do you have a blank pw when you goto toaccesories-passwords and enc keys, passwords.
Roasted
my network manager keeps coming up as BLACK. Its just a black square over where it would be in the panel. Why?
almoxarife
greezmunkey: what some point it will break one of the ubuntu-(min/std)
Roasted
cancel that. fixed it.
C-S-B
Roasted, I had that, never did sort it. only on one of my computers.
Roasted, how did you fix?
Roasted
C-S-B, I just removed the notification area from the panel and re-added it.
C-S-B
it will happen again, im sure.
Roasted
C-S-B, it disappeared when I uninstalled NM/installed WICD, then went back to NM.
C-S-B
it did with me
moosekaka
ok i was under the wonr menu i was in the systems-encryption and keyrings
Roasted
C-S-B, I'll reboot a few times and see what kind of luck I have :P
moosekaka
not i see the accessories -passwords and keyrings -passwrods.
C-S-B
Roasted, I got it *sometimes*
its was unclean.
moosekaka
under passphrase for wireless
greezmunkey
almoxarife: huh! What do you mean?
C-S-B
moosekaka, you need it to have the right passphrase there.
but right click the keyring and change to blank.
if it isnt already
but it will mean that none of your stored passwords are protected
but nm will work with autologin without unlocking the keyring )

C-S-B
airtonix, sorry.
keres
thank you, C-S-B
C-S-B, for a command. Thunar is the my file manager, so i use the cmd "thunar" to fire it up. I configuring firefox to use thunar. How would I find thunar?
almoxarife
greezmunkey: some of the packages are actually pointers to a collection of other packages, ie ubuntu-standard , you can see when you select a package for removal what other pckgs will be involved, so you can decide to or not too based on what it breaks
Roasted
are laptop wireless adapters typically change-able for other modelS? I'm wondering if I can drop in an RTL 8187B card from 1 toshiba satellite tha's dead and put it in place of this BS ATheros card that wont work in another working toshiba...

almoxarife: In other words, get ready to do some reading, right! :)
