Hmm....
I can't SSH to the Pi.
Putting in the password isn't working ...
:P
 
Isn't that something you need to enable with raspiconfig
 
@Mateo Umm...it's always worked in the past...
Hm
ARGH!
!&#&#$(Q@*@(*!!!!!
 
o_O" ??
 
@ByteCommander Having troubles with SSH & my Pi :P
 
12:19 AM
I never had a Pi nor did I use SSH... But that is one reason why I prefer Raspberry Pie to the version without "e"! ;D
 
Dear good gravy am I stupid
That moment when you try to SSH to your own desktop when trying to SSH to your Pi and can't figure out why it's not working
/me:
 
@RPiAwesomeness lol
I remember once I was setting up the firewall on my server and I ran sudo ufw default deny and then sudo ufw reload and then realized my mistake.
 
Oh noes :D
And I'm guessing you don't have Physical access :D
 
No, I did.
But I had to go hunt down a monitor and waste lots of time.
 
Ah :)
I'm probably gonna be taking some real IT classes this next school year.
It's actually going to be a mixture of 4 classes in one day, I just go between them.
Sadly, the programming one is in C# :P and the server software management thingy one is using Microsoft servers.
Game design/3D and the networking/physical server management/build & fix PCs part should be interesting.
Okay. So it's not the adapter, it's the Pi/raspbian itself that's having the issues with the adapter.
Curse you Pi/Raspbian
 
12:31 AM
hey guys
so i installed cmatrix
 
but i dont know how to enable it
 
you mean as a screensaver?
 
yeah
 
I was wondering that too.
 
12:34 AM
someone was talking about it a while ago on this chat
Earlier today
 
yeah I saw it.
 
Oh...Youtube remembers where you were in a video now?
That's cool...ish...I guess...
 
Thats been there for a while lol
 
Shows how much I watch long Youtube videos :D
 
Lol clearly

Q: cmatrix to turn on after a certain amount of inactivity

ToroidalI have got the console screensaver cmatrix, and I was wondering if there is anyway of getting it to turn on after a certain amount of inactivity in the console you are in? OS Information: Description: Ubuntu 14.10 Release: 14.10 Package Information: cmatrix: Installed: 1.2a-5 Candi...

He was wondering the same, so star that question
 
Downloading LibreOffice for Pi 2 testing...
 
Maybe they will find an answer
@pingOfDoom but to use it normal type cmatrix in the terminal
 
This is cool...
 
1:10 AM
Boo. It looks like I'm not going to get to go to the 150th Appomattox reenactment after all :'(
 
1:40 AM
Ah! RPi 2! Love the things.
It's nice that they're powerful enough that you can do some medium-sized project development with tmux, valgrind, gdb, etc.
If I recall correctly, then the Pi 1 Model B wasn't really up to the task of anything larger than a dozen-file project (or so).
Or, rather, it was difficult to develop larger projects with it due to the single-core ARM11 processor.
Not impossible.
 
Argh! I can't get VNC to work on desktop at all
Grrrrr
Every time I try to connect to or from my desktop I get this:
Well. There we go!
Just a thing to note - the Pi 2 cannot run full Minecraft AFAIK.
Just wanted to make that clear :)

Q: hauppauge PCI cards /dev/video0 no longer showing up after hard disk replacement

CarlI had a working MythTV DVR a couple years ago. The hard disk failed, so it sat in the corner for a couple years. Recently, I pulled it out, put a new hard disk in it, and installed the latest Mythubuntu (14.04 amd 64) on it. However, the video cards no longer seems to show up in /dev anymore (...

 
2:57 AM
@Seth Just finished the "We Are Anonymous" book you mentioned a while back. Quite a cool book, really. I very much enjoyed it :D
I can see why you would find that book depressing, people can be really awful under the guise of a virtual identity. Really gosh awful. :P
Now....to become a 133t H4xz0r...
:)
 
3:38 AM
@RPiAwesomeness Yes, yes they can.
You must be able to read pretty fast if you finished that book so quickly :)

cgcgbcbcThe server A has access to the Internet, since I get correct response when I use curl . And I have another server B which is free of this issue, of which /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/resolv.conf are the same(except ipaddress, netmask,gateway, both of them are configured with static ip, but in...

I have connected my android device in Ubuntu 14.10
but the problem is that I get mtp error when previewing media without first copying them to the hard disk. Why is that?
 
@Oli In response to your question to me, I decided that it made more sense to convert my answer into a comment below the question, which also has the reply to your comment in it.

@karel I'd keep it as an answer. Just add in a " no" in the beginning >:)
Ha! Voted to undelete >:) Never used that option
 
Anybody got experience with the Event Manger WordPress Plugin?
Need some help with it
 
@blade19899 the last program I used with the acronym WP was WordPerfect.
 
@Rinzwind Crap :(
 
8:31 AM
lol
 
@Rinzwind Was asked to modified it, and me and a co-worker said, yes. He's gone, and i don't have enough experience with WordPress or Event Manager, to modify its php code.
 
There you go with the 3 letter swearing >:-D
Friends do not let friends use PHP >:-D
 
Oli
@karel Yeah that's still an answer to the question - it should be in the answers section.

Q: When asking for advice, How can I make my questions more clear?

LiverianI have asked a few questions already, and I get at least 1 comment saying that I was unclear, or didn't provide enough information. I'm very new to ubuntu, and I'm hoping to learn and get better, and I understand most Linux users are more advanced and don't want to deal with people who don't know...

 
Oli
@blade19899 It has a "Support" tab on that page. That's probably the best place to get support for it.
 
8:41 AM
@Oli They don't provide support when you edit their php code. Not in there "Support Policy" :(
 
Oli
That's not a universal policy. Many plugin authors I've worked with in the past have been more than happy to help... Sounds like your co-worker needs somebody who knows PHP.
 
@Oli My co-worker doesn't work here anymore, and i bin left with this task. Even though i said i'm novice in php. And i already talked to the author of the plugin. He said, " ...not in our Support Policy..."
 
Oli
@blade19899 Okay, so you need somebody who knows enough PHP to get what you want accomplished. It sounds like a poor candidate for StackOverflow and only tangentially within the remit of WebApps... You either need to go on an 80s-style training montage, have it uploaded into your brain, or hire somebody. Lots of freelancers out there who do little jobs like this - just make sure they have references.
 
9:15 AM
@reversiblean mtp is just full of bugs - especially the android implementation of the protocol. libmtp is the library linux uses for mtp sources - looking at the code there are lots of workaround to get around android issues. 14.04 & 14.10 use a relatively older version of libmtp. You could try a newer version ... or just workaround it as you have noted by copying stuff to your hard-disk
 
@Oli Posted on Stackoveflow, and don't have time to hire a developer. Plus, I'm the new developer they hired...
Meaning id just pissed them off if i say hire another developer.
 
Pay someone to work with you on weekends, like hiring your own teacher?
 
Oli
I don't mean as an ongoing engagement, I mean hire somebody to do this task, nothing else. PeoplePerHour, Freelance.com, etc...
 
@Oli payperminute >:)
 
@Oli @Rinzwind never heard of those. Let me check them out. Thanks!
 
9:23 AM
lol
 
9:50 AM
@fossfreedom is there a ppa to get the latest version of libmtp? I tried to install go-mtpfs, but it seems that they don't have a package available for 14.10

Q: How can I install the latest version of libmtp?

coversnailIn the latest version of the libmtp library there are fixes for my Android device so I would like to install the latest version I'm just not sure how! I would assume that this would pushed into the official repositories at some point, so the smart advice would probably be just to wait, but I woul...

 
@Rinzwind I saw that. just wondering if there is ppa or something for ease of installtion
 
see the 2nd answer @reversiblean
it has a link to webupd8.org/2012/12/…
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install go-mtpfs
 
@Rinzwind go-mtpfs does not have a package for utopic
 
But that might be the one you are already using(?)
@reversiblean that might mean there have not been changes for utopic.
or it got dropped :X
But I would start with the accepted answer; its not that difficult ;)
