nclucid: i felt it weird when i tried it, but you can run the 64-bit version on 64-bit windows and 32-bit on 32-bit Linux etc, they don't need to be the same arch. might be worth a try anywho. i run the other way though, windows box where i have the mouse+kb then karmic on the one that connects to the windows box
i use quicksynergy on karmic
KeithChester
daftykins: you wouldnt have happened to have used sage before, right?
nclucid
daftykins: think i should switch to 32 bit on windows?
daftykins
KeithChester: i'm afraid not
nclucid: oh you're already running mixed archs? oh i dunno i was just suggesting that they don't have to be the same... worth a try though :)
nclucid
daftykins: yeah they are running mixed atm... let me try windows on 32 bit
daftykins
nclucid: both PCs wired networking on the same switch yeah?
greezmunkey
daftykins: I could look this up, but in /var/www do all of the riles require root/root permissions?

DanDare: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)

Ah many thanks

Roasted
SeaPhor, I'm all ears. No. Ill try it right now
SeaPhor, prompted me to download 49k of something. I hit yes. Done.
SeaPhor
Roasted, after thats done, you need to update and then prolly a reboot
Roasted
SeaPhor, do another apt-get update?
Capt_Blackwood
Roasted, probably do that...then reboot
SeaPhor
Roasted, that or System>Admin~> update...

greezmunkey
Roasted: That gksu nautilus trick will save me a lot of time, thanks.
Roasted
SeaPhor, and what was I upgrading from sources.list?
greezmunkey, no problem. Use it wisely. Remember - you are ROOT when using that!
SeaPhor
Roasted, your restricted extras repos
Roasted
SeaPhor, oh, so we just enabled it?
greezmunkey
Roasted: I get that :), but for adding pages to the web server, etc - works great. Even gave all of the files root/root.
Guitar-Player
I can`t change the root ' s password? I am using sudo passwd
Can you help me?
Roasted
SeaPhor, booted up... trying to connect...

just applied an update to samba, now my symlinks won't work... anyone have any idea? now running samba 3.2.3

ubottu: sudo | Guitar-Player
ubottu
Guitar-Player: sudo is a command to run command-line ( see !cli ) programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE)
SeaPhor
Roasted, well, sorta,,, if were me i'd do a sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras just to be sure
Guitar-Player
thanks

almoxarife
shingen: me too, samba has been on the fritz since earlier
Roasted
SeaPhor, didn't work. trying again to connect to wifi network...
shingen
almoxarife: crap... I love symlinks in file shares... otherwise I have like 10+ distinct shares :P

Hope they leave the feed up so we can see TWiG
Roasted

ok i isolated the problem somewwhat i removed my SSID...then try to connect to my network name and it prompts me for the WPA key...enter it.....then i get one 'green' dot in the connections and it says its waiting for the network key....and at that point it fails
SeaPhor
no, contains all the closed source drivers, including the atheros
Guitar-Player

Roasted
SeaPhor, wow. are you serious. Am I that much of an idiot? djfaklsdj

Funny howto on changing password: http://www.codetorment.com/2009/11/03/tutorial-change-user-password-in-ubuntu-9-10/
Roasted
SeaPhor, downloading restricted extras now....
rww
SeaPhor, Roasted: ubuntu-restricted-extras doesn't contain any drivers.
Roasted
nooooooooo :(
Capt_Blackwood
Roasted, the "Restricted Extras" is basically, a bag of goodies you won't want to pass up on. I've got them and they are...NICE (which is an under statement
SeaPhor
Roasted, after enabling that, need to update and if needed a restart
Capt_Blackwood
Though, SeaPhor's probably right...there are no drivers...but it's worth downloading
Roasted
Capt_Blackwood, yeah, I always install them, but I was doing about 6 different installs earlier and I guess I missed it on this laptop. However, I wouldnt have suspected that restricted extras has any sort of drivers.... however its sounding like it doesnt......
trying it anyway. crossing fingers.

can anyone help me to reset my network keyring settings? i cant establish a connection with my router...its asks for my WPA key...enter it....then while waiting for the network key it fails

almoxarife: have you tried downgrading to a previous version of samba yet?
hwilde
hello I want an audio program with a cool graphical display of the audio stream
dcnstrct
damn I just realized google chrome is spyware.. just when I was getting to like it. How disappointing.
hwilde
xmms used to have a sweet spectrum analyzer visualization plugin
shingen
dcnstrct: use chromium binaries, no spyware
iksf
get chromium or srware iron
greezmunkey
dcnstrct: spyware?
rww
Roasted: I believe ath5k is in linux-backports-modules-karmic (assuming you're using Karmic). 'swhat https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/Atheros says, anyway.
dcnstrct
shingen, I will check it out.
greezmunkey, yeah it's spyware. according to wikipedia spyware is : Software that secretly monitors the user's behavior... Spyware programs can collect various types of personal information, such as Internet surfing habit, sites that have been visited...
thats exactly what chrome does
SeaPhor
rww, although technically correct,,,,, um,,, yeah, plz don't confuse him any further
Roasted
rww, to your knowledge, if I would install the backports-modules-karmic, would I have to do anything else or would the driver just.... work?
rww
ubottu: ot | dcnstrct
ubottu
dcnstrct: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!
Roasted
SeaPhor, booted up, trying to connect... taking a while... :(
dcnstrct
;) fair enough, thnx shingen
shingen
dcnstrct: you can read this article http://zenhabits.net/2010/03/google-free/ to get 'google free' :)
rww
SeaPhor: I don't understand your point. You told them to install something completely unrelated to wifi drivers, I told them the correct package.
Roasted
didn't work.
Capt_Blackwood
Roasted, try these linux-backports-modules-karmic
greezmunkey
dcnstrct: No kidding, here's what I found also: http://www.favbrowser.com/google-chrome-spyware-confirmed/

anyone try downgrading samba to fix the symlink issue introduced by the latest vulnerability fix? I think the symlink issue I have is because of this new patch ->> http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&ved=0CAYQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.securityfocus.com%2Fbid%2F38111&ei=XryuS9anCsL6lweky6SQAQ&usg=AFQjCNGspQ6_t_my32bUyA17JJAyommd1A&sig2=klpLn1Fl0sBeZg7a2Z2c2w
Roasted
Capt_Blackwood, I am. I assume I just download whichever match up to my kernel version? UI see 14-20 here.
Capt_Blackwood
probably...
SeaPhor
roasted, i didn't say that was the cure, just that that needed to be enabled to see if it was there,,, look now in System>Administrator> Hardware Drivers
Roasted
Capt_Blackwood, nevermind. Always read the bits of info. I clicked ont he one for my kernel and they advised not to download this, to download the entire meta package, which was located further down in synaptic
SeaPhor, nothing there man. :(
po1ter
greezmunkey, just run chromium instead of chrome
nishanth
my ubuntu has been freezing a couple of times today can anyone help me with this issue
SeaPhor
if not then choose the backports that rww and Capt_Blackwood are suggesting
moosekak1
ok i think i may know the problem i tried to install libpam-keyring
Roasted
rww, I just installed it, and it's pulling down .20, which is the kernel version I have. What if .21 comes out? Will my wifi be un-useable?
rww, until I get the newer backports that is. Or dot hey auto come down for newer kernels too?
Capt_Blackwood
Roasted, just switch to it when it comes out bro
greezmunkey
po1ter: dcnstrct: More like the auto complete feature...hmm
Roasted
Capt_Blackwood, yeah, but this is my mother's laptop. I'm just wondering if this is anything I'll have to worry about if she ever does an update and the kernel comes down with it.
greezmunkey
po1ter: FF here.
Roasted
Capt_Blackwood, if it were me, I'd just do it. But when it's somebody else's problem I want to know :P
SeaPhor
Roasted, the point is that you always make sure all that is available is enabled before you resort to a backport, and a backport before you resort to a "ndiswrapper"
Capt_Blackwood
Roasted, (Forgive my language) once you get to know what you're doing, Ubuntu'll be your bi**h
rww
Roasted: when a kernel update comes out, linux-backports-modules-karmic gets changed to depend on the new versioned package, so it should all be automatic.
nishanth
someone help plz
Roasted
SeaPhor, I understand, and I appreciate you bringing that to my attention anyway becuase I wouldn't want to pass off this laptop without restricted extras anyway.
rww, awesome, thanks.
rww, got them installed. rebooting...
moosekak1
damn it still doesnt work
Admin_

moosekak1

SeaPhor
Roasted, how did u install the driver?
shishirdwivedi20

jacksnively
does anyone know how to get my graphics to work in high res in ubuntu notebook with dell mini 10
nishanth
can anyone help with some ubuntu freezing issue ?
SeaPhor
Roasted, still need to find the driver, .... do you understand what a "backport" is?
shingen
how can I downgrade to a previous version of a package using synaptic? I only see two available versions
shishirdwivedi20
plz reply
Roasted
SeaPhor, you know, I've used ubuntu for a few years... and uh... no. I dont.
SeaPhor
its ok Roasted .....
Roasted
shishirdwivedi20, you do that under system - admin - users and groups. Unlock it, put in root password, and handle it there.
shishirdwivedi20
roasted ok
enriquei

yeiks
i'm using ubuntu 9.0.4 and i will like it to really look cool to the eyes i tried ubuntu studio through synaptic but it is not givin me that cool and slim fell, wat should i do?
SeaPhor
Roasted, try to think of it tis way.... something that doesnt work right-off with the current kernel,,, but is fixed in the next kernel, they "backport" it for the earlier kernel,,, just because you enabled backports doesnt mean you identified the "driver to backport"
yeiks
*feel
Roasted
SeaPhor, oh, I understand. So since I have kernel .20, you're saying theres a newer kernel out than that may have a fix?
jack
does anyone know a good player for .ape files?
this one crashes mpd all the time...might be libavcodec51's fault
jacksnively
guess no one has an answer
blakkheim
