user139252
Hey there, little squirrel
 
@TheBrownOne Hi
 
Why my answers are getting down voted? I am pretty sure that they are the answers of highest quality and only those who are unable to understand it will down vote it.
 
1:16 AM
idk
 
Is there any moderator over here? I am spending hours searching google and my answers are getting downvoted.
 
Nathan's a mod
And nathan's the friendliest mod there is too!
 
Hello friends :D
 
Hello
 
Hi :D
 
1:26 AM
Place is so quiet
 
yup, its the same most of the time
atleast during this time
 
user139252
@NathanOsman @Seth I'm able to use X2Go to launch a 0ad host on an AWS instance...
 
@SQuirel Hello. :)
 
user139252
@NathanOsman @Seth Nope, scratch that. It didn't work.
 
user139252
X2Go seems to have trouble with OpenGL
 
1:36 AM
@HenryWHHack hi
 
hello from unity 8!
 
Hello from TTY1 :D
I wish... :(
 
1:53 AM
@Mateo Nice! Now charge your battery. :)
 
yep ;)
huh, well that is a bug then
just plugged in - should show charging
oh, there it goes, strange
so mostly works, inconensistant bugs are the hardest to figure out
you can install apps from the store now with a bit of work
 
I'll wait until 16.10 (or whenever ;) but it looks exciting
 
@Mateo Hi ;) you didn't tell me how to take screenshots with cursor ;)
 
there is an option - then you do fullscreen timed, and crop it later
 
I just press prt sc and it clicks. where are options ? you use Ubuntu unity rt ?
 
2:01 AM
the "screenshot" app
should be able to type screenshot in the dash
 
Oh.. I never saw that :D Thankyou
did that, but still not getting the pointer
it only comes If I set delay ???
 
must be a bug then...
 
try running it from the command line. that seems to solve similar problems
 
you use 16.04 ?
 
I always use a few sec delay - so I can get the cursor in place
@SeverusTux Just started today :p
on unity 8 right now
 
2:06 AM
Wow! unity 8
 
so for unity 8 just hold down volume up and down at the same time :)
 
how is that ? I only saw some videos ..
 
It is getting there bit by bit
the tablet if further along, but you can tell there is a lot of work constantly going into it
 
yes, you use touchscreen laptop ? coz I read that they have provided better support for touchscreens on u8
 
nope no touchscreen
 
2:09 AM
ah..
 
they have fixed many of the mouse issues since
and the alt+tab, and meta key shortcuts are there now
user image
2
 
cool :O
 
the content-exchange thing is a briliant idea, it really makes file managment between apps great
I just selected a screenshot from the gallery app to put here - so you pic the app that sends the content - before it was only a simple file selector
so this is what I see after hitting upload here:
so "choose from" comes up, they you can choose to send it downloads from the browser, choose the file manager, or just get a picture straight from the gallery
 
Its similar to ubuntu touch...
 
that is the point ;)
it is the "desktop" mode of the phones/tablets
they are working towards having the same thing on phone/tablet/desktop
and so when you plug your phone into a big screen you get a full desktop
 
2:20 AM
launcher set to autohide by default ?
 
yeah, there is a setting to change that
and the icon size, I just need to look that up on here
did that to the tablet first thing for dekstop mode
 
Can I finally run a desktop off my phone?
Is this what I'm seeing?
 
this is a deksotp on my laptop ;P
hold on let me dig up a pic of my nexus 4 I tried a bit back
 
Oh. :(
Well I want Ubuntu for android
 
the first question is almost yes ;)
 
2:23 AM
Go run my phone, and then load up a docking station
Then bam, monitors and keyboards and real computers
 
Jan 11 at 23:35, by Mateo
user image
 
wooowww...!!
 
then the touchscreen on the phone becomes your mouse/keyboard now too
or you can attach one
 
Sweet
 
Is that HDMI?
how does it detect ?
should we set it manually ?
Will it work smoothly ?? I mean the RAM, processor.. all sufficient ??
 
2:30 AM
it is MHL which sends hdmi over the usb-otg connection
 
guys,, is this link working for you ? elections.stackexchange.com/#askubuntu
got that link from here : askubuntu.com/election/5 it said "More information about the candidates"
 
Ah... after seeing this, I am sue about one thing. Windows is dead!
 
@James I've got a user privately emailing me about being downvoted.
 
@James you might like that video ;)
 
2:35 AM
Would you or any other mods want a copy of the email?
 
once they get a few more key things in place, it's going to be like a tsunami ;)
 
3:30 AM
@NathanOsman telegram? (or gchat if you don't have that)
 
I sent it to you on Hangouts.
I guess that's what gchat is? :D

Q: How to find difference in options that were used for ext4 partitions?

Valeriy SolovyovI have some set of scripts that create qcow2 file with grub legacy (0.97) with special patch to boot from ext4 and ext4 file system for '/'. When I run those scripts on Ubuntu 12.04/14.04 the VMs works in KVM. But for Centos 7 the grub legacy doesn't load from ext4. The '/' is creating with mkf...

 
@TheBrownOne I might have an idea...
I can get a 6-core machine with 8 GB of RAM for €0.020 / hr.
That should probably be enough to handle the load even with software rendering if I shrink the window down to a tiny size.
I might try that next week.
Don't forget, I did actually get it running on a Digital Ocean droplet. Only problem was that it didn't have enough memory or processing power to make the game playable.
 
user139252
How did you connect to the GUI?
 
user139252
I'm using X2Go, which apparently doesn't support OpenGL applications.

6:07 AM
I feel I am not in a category to compile and build customized kernel(I am a miniature).wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/BuildYourOwnKernel.Everything basics I've learned from Internet.What kind of books should I read I don't ve any motivation.May be I am like a fictitious character in the movie Independence day who sprinkle pesticides over his field.
 
@ParanoidPanda George's next video is done. I'm rendering it out now and it will then be uploaded.
 
@NathanOsman Bro Are you a Musilm?Love the way you moderate everyone.
 
No, I am not. And I'm also not a moderator on Ask Ubuntu.
I'm a moderator on Ebooks.SE, which makes me a chat moderator.
 
@NathanOsman Love the way you react(to idiots like me),Why should one talk about a religion,We all are same,Human's.
 
@NathanOsman have fun ;-P
bye all
 
6:21 AM
@NathanOsman Yoy bro must be working with Canonical and not a Voulnteer
 
No, I'm not working with them. I'm a volunteer.
 
yes you can make me spellbound
I sometimes feel I am bothering to the People busy in bugging out 16.04
I can do my only contribution editing,flagging Will that put an extra load on real people,so should I walk out?
 
6:39 AM
Guys love you all,May GOD gives you an eternal peace and a bless from GOD and I'm your bro,You will find me chanting different mantras If I ever learned them.
 
Oh..man,, This guy is simply going through all the posts adding tags : 16.04 , 15.10, 14.14 .. thats all the edits he is doing. I got almost 10 suggested edits... what to do ????
 
nothing
if you found he is correct accept his edits
 
Nothing ?? I feel like its editing for the sake of editing . So I came back here to get your opinions
 
He might 've edited If you found good for the community ,Then accept or Reject
 
6:55 AM
@SeverusTux Are the tags relevant to the question?
If not, then reject the edits.

@NathanOsman after seeing many of his edits, I think he does something like this : checks if there is any "16.04" in the question is yes, add the tag "16.04". a lot of similar edits. Now I am skipping those edits
 
@NathanOsman sent it just now to Geoge the dev
good morning everyone
 
7:02 AM
@Videonauth Good Morning LionGuy.
 
@Videonauth Is there any meaning for your username ? ;-) Video-Nauth ...
 
well i love to see videos :) and since my former nickname is used almost everywhere i decided to find a new one
and since there are already so many juggernauths :p i became the videonauth
 
comes vrom my aversion agains usernames with numbers behind
 
no the guy could be best may be a pass out from IIT @Hizqeel,@NathanOsman,Do not take opinions of a Guy who does not have any achievements.
@NathanOsman I want to convert in Buddhism or Catholic,I don't like some mad women doing kirtan(not my mother).
I don't like my security guard saying RAM RAM,I feel awkward
 
7:16 AM
@MuditKapil may be. But after approving most of @Hizqeel 's edits my approves are not being taken into account. It says "Waiting for other users to review. " But this does not happen on other reviews . So now I am skipping them. Let others do it. ;-)
 
My best athlete ali has died so would be with Mike

Q: Menu bar is covering the Deletion pop-up

Severus Tux The "Recommend Deletion" pop-up is not fully visible. Yes, this is a minor bug, but it looks clean it this is fixed.

 
owwww the super mouse is here :) good morning
 
morning @Videonauth - how are you today?
 
scared to death because im going to nominate myself, against who know else
12 hours to go and im already breaking a sweat
 
:) nomination is the easy part ... it when you get into the intense Q&A ... and maybe the full online-debate that's when it gets exciting.
 
i guess so, especially im very fresh on the site my account is only 74 days old
 
8:25 AM
good luck!
 
im sure there will be many questions regarding that
 
@StefanoPalazzo - hello hello hello!
 
I see youre gaining signees yourself for your cause :)
 
@fossfreedom Morning!
 
8:40 AM
This chatroom has gone completely silent.
Hello Everyone! :)
I hate typos.
 
9:06 AM
Ah... got it
 
9:37 AM
well since i used my medication two days in a row I need to catch up with the site :)
 
man adduser
fopen: No such file or directory
Cannot open man page /usr/share/man/overrides/man8/useradd.8.gz
^That's nor right, right?!
 
defectively not right
 
hhhmmm
 
thanks @muru
 
@fossfreedom no problem. I left a message here since neither of those posts by themselves really look like spam.
 
@ muru what whas your what question yesterday? this really confused me
 
@Videonauth meant to post this link: askubuntu.com/review/suggested-edits/573744
 
ah now it makes sense, yes i wasnt sure at that , tho seems as i made a mistake there
good you rolled it back
 
 
1 hour later…
11:26 AM
@ThomasW. I look at that I feel it: then will follow the comments and edits, and before you know it, you're helping the guy set up a Puppet server. :/ I'll just close it as unclear.

Q: Getting a Windows 7 installation to run virtualized under Ubuntu?

Andre MohrenI've currently installed Windows 7 and Ubuntu via dualboot. To avoid switching the OS by rebooting, i want to be able to start my Windows 7 via a virtual machine. It is important to be able to boot Windows directly. Windows itself is configured via domain by my employer. However these restrictio...

 
12:00 PM
@muru Time to use a page out of my book, "Thomas Ward's Guide on How to be a Stubborn Hard-Ass in the World of IT Help Desk": "If they say 'but how do i do it then', you tell them 'I am not going to help you fix your server; the issue is that your Puppet class is bad, that's the extent of the issue in this question, and you have to fix it. If you really need help setting up Puppet classes, ask that as a different question.'"
hate to say I"ve used this page, but I actually have in several cases before
@fossfreedom y'know... I WOULD... except that you require us to put our testimonial in a Google Document, and not on the wiki directly... so............ do I support you for membership? Yes. Am I going to put a testimonial on your wiki which requires me to first dump data onto a google document? No. I have a thing about Google recently. Happy to send my testimonial to the membership board if you tell me which way you're applying though :P
 
@ThomasW. they locked the wiki down recently. People who are not already Ubuntu members cannot edit wiki. I guess you can go ahead and add the testimonial directly to his wiki page.
 
@ThomasW. done
 
and it seems like Stefano has also done the same and added his testimonial directly to the wiki page.
 
Hi @ThomasW. - yeah - sorry about that - out of my control. @Seth did say that if you send him directly anything he'll copy-paste for you.
 
Didn't Ubuntu have an etherpad instance?
Sounds like this would have been a nice use for it
 
12:10 PM
they do
yeah, it was setup but we went with Google docs anyway.
 
@ThomasW. - there is also an email address at the bottom of this page that you can use to do private submissions - wiki.ubuntu.com/Membership/Boards
 
@jokerdino That's gotta be a really recent change; 90% of the people who have edited aren't members... adds "Ask Canonical IT about that" to his list of things to do
 
> * The wiki is currently in editing lockdown due to spam attacks; only members of the ~ubuntumembers team on Launchpad can edit it directly.
 
@fossfreedom Yeah, I was going to inject my two cents by one of the members of the membership board heh
ahhh ok
 
right at the bottom of his wiki page.
 
12:13 PM
oh snap, almost out of power in my laptop oopsies
@jokerdino indeed.

Q: What is an unregistered user?

anonymous2Just what is an unregistered user? Example: http://askubuntu.com/users/15736/yourmother It obviously is not one who cannot answer a question, as that user has answered a question.

 
1:23 PM
The site seems to be slow today, somehow some actions like saving an edit etc takes a good amount of time to go through.
 
@Videonauth speedy here
 
weird maybe the route then
 
1:43 PM
@Zacharee1 Why don't you run?
 
I don't have time to do that
I also don't have the patience yet
 
@James @Zacharee1 wants to give me a chance ;)
 
heh
 
Well, you should consider it.
everyone who hangs out here should, really.
 
you too @James
 
1:52 PM
lol
 
surprise @jokerdino what do you mean? Aren't I doing enough by taking care of flags periodically?
 
askubuntu.com/review/low-quality-posts/575551 phew what to do with this, i normaly let the answers from OP alone but this !?
 
Close as the problem went away on its own
Because, well, he reinstalled :p
wait
I actually think it might be valid
 
its valid but, a community wiki? seriously?
 
dunno
 
1:56 PM
well i see two people here with blue names? so what would you do on that ?
 
What's the question?
 
ok, so in the low quality queue there is an answer.
 
normalyy i edit the ops answer only to make it clean but this he posted as community wiki
 
(I'm trying to walk you through how moderators of the elected and non-elected variety think about these issues)
 
2:00 PM
so not knowing what to suggest a deletion seems improper action
 
What we're looking at is closing it as "Off Topic"
> This describes a problem that can't be reproduced that seemingly went away on its own or was only relevant to a very specific period of time. It's off-topic as it's unlikely to help future readers.
so the answer is LQ, but we'll ignore it, because the question needs to be closed.
 
ah ok
makes sense
i actually just cast my close vote on the question
 
cool. i went in and supermodvoted.
 
:)
I'm really curious who else will nominate at the election
Even if i think i have much chance, im going to step up and at least try it

2:11 PM
Hello buddies :D
 
Hiho Tux :) hows life today?
 
Life is exiting as days go... Exams on 13th
 
Guys need help, I m in initramfs and need to run fsck manually. So I guess I need live CD or flash drive with Ubuntu. I have flash drive with Ubuntu 15.10 but my machine have Ubuntu 16.04... is it okay
 
I presume its the same for you ;) Election in a week
 
@James Oh, so I was right! :D
 
2:14 PM
@Freddy should be still ok
 
@muru they do, but it requires membership of the ~etherpadusers team on LP
@ThomasW. If you read it again it says "if you are not already an ubuntu memeber.. user the google doc". It even has an explanation ;)
 
if anyone deserves the membership, it's fossy btw.
 
membership for what?
oh, ubuntu?
 
Oh, the chat-room is active. Nice :)
 
@Zacharee1 it's like an open source club that only lets in nice and productive people... which makes it the opposite of a lot of other open source clubs for one reason or another ;)
 
2:22 PM
lol
Can anyone edit the Ubuntu Wiki?
Because there's a command splice right in the beginning here wiki.ubuntu.com/Membership
 
eh?
Usually anyone can edit the wiki, but it's locked to just ubuntu members atm
 
actually, it's just awkward
Although it should be a semi-colon at least.
 
@MadMike its mostly active at all times
 
We help to build Ubuntu, the most popular Free Operating System out there, [(<-- this comma here)] we do
 
idk, I put up an edit to get Doom running on Ubuntu a couple of years ago and had to get a community member to approve it.
 
2:24 PM
hmm
 
@Videonauth Oh dear. Another thing that will tempt me to procrastinate... damn you stackexchange ;)
 
hehehe
 
this was a nice talk about that
 
@RobotHumans Looks nice. I will definitively give have a look at it. Thanks :)
 
Thank you @Videonauth it worked
 
2:28 PM
@MadMike basically, it says "dyed in the wool procrastinators are actually bipolar. and an oncoming deadline triggers a manic phase for fear of the panic monster"
 
@Freddy you're very welcome
@RobotHumans Indeed i watched it as you posted it earlier :)
 
Yes. I bring it up every time someone says "I'm procrastinating"
 
@RobotHumans you must be an actual bot
 
@Zacharee1 Would that I could replace my organs with swappable parts.
 
I'm downloading it to my kodi-media-thingy to watch it @ home later.
 
2:35 PM
@RobotHumans The first modular human. Google Huma
 
Nice. I can correct my spelling errors even after posting them. Cool :)
 
later. time for the day job
 
Bye

@Videonauth oh no, you're adopting cheesy English idioms

did they at least speak English correctly?
 
hard-line Oxford English only, with no real connection to use cases
 
:p
For a language that has a strong base in German, English sure is different
 
user139252
English is probably the worst language ever.

@NathanOsman are the voices are digitally processed?
And actual subtitles! :D
That earns my subscription

@Zacharee1 :)
@TheBrownOne yes.

3:36 PM
Interesting. Well, I'll have to try re-tracking her when I get home, then.
 
@Zacharee1 yes, but only George's. The monkey and the tiger's voice are left alone.
 
It sounded like that
 
I bump George's voice up 30% of an octave.
 
lol
@TheBrownOne out of context that sounds great
 
@NathanOsman have you read georges email from launchpad?
urgs 1/3 of that mhmm ok seems i have to improvise it as soon i see what length is possible :))
I will know in 4 hours

and wood where there should have been glass
and the bottom corner was blown up
I fixed it, thanks to WorldEdit
 
@Zacharee1 what i have as a a nomination draft is to long regarding the information i got from nathan :) seem i really have to improvise when i finally be able to see the possible length
