Guest98393help me pleaseeeeee05:49
Guest98393can someone tell me how to install themes on xubuntu 9.1005:50
ubottuFind your themes at: http://www.gnome-look.org - http://art.gnome.org - http://www.kde-look.org - http://kubuntu-art.org - http://themes.freshmeat.net/browse/58/ - http://www.guistyles.com - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/ - Also see !changethemes and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuEyeCandy05:50
ubottuThemes for Xfce4 are simply GTK2+ themes which means Gnome themes are also compatible with your xfce4 desktop. To install themes, unpack it in ~/.themes/  To install icons, unpack them to ~/.icons/ - Visit http://www.xfce-look.org/ for all kinds of eyecandy for your Xfce4 desktop! - See also !themes for other GNOME theme sites05:50
Guest98393where is that ~/.themes/  ???05:51
Guest98393i dont see any .themes05:54
knomein thunar, press ctrl+h so you can see hidden files and folders (starting with .)05:55
knomeif you still don't see .themes, feel free to create that directory05:55
Guest98393help. how do i change the panel theme06:11
Guest98393thanks again06:13
genoobieIf I'm going to use xubuntu exclusively do I need a boot loader?06:26
knomegenoobie, it's not mandatory, but i wouldn't suggest ripping it off either06:27
genoobiefair enough06:28
genoobieI'm excited to start using xubuntu06:28
knomegenoobie, :) have fun06:28
genoobiethe thing that used to piss me off about linux was the software management aspect06:30
genoobieI didn't feel like compiling something every time I wanted a bin06:30
knomelol :)06:30
genoobieI was okay with "non-optimized" software06:31
genoobieseems like the xubuntu install is taking some time06:49
knomea bit06:50
Humbucker:P Of course ubuntu is a big operating system06:50
knomeless than windows, though06:50
genoobiewell is xubuntu?06:50
genoobieyeah, funny, they seem comparable in installation time06:50
knomegenoobie, xubuntu shares the base of ubuntu06:50
genoobieI suppose I can strip it down afterward06:50
HumbuckerYes, it is almost the same as ubuntu but without gnome.06:51
knomegenoobie, so yes, even xubuntu is partly "big"06:51
genoobieI like the fact it detected the touchpoint mouse w/o trouble06:51
genoobiehopefully it will do the same for the wireless card06:51
HumbuckerI dont have any experience with wireless & ubuntu :P06:52
HumbuckerBut I think it should work06:52
genoobiewe'll see06:52
genoobieeven XP didn't like WPA in the beginning06:52
HumbuckerI managed to get it working on Arch and arch seems somewhat harder than ubuntu06:52
knomeeverything is solvable. genoobie, did you try the livecd?06:52
genoobieI wanted to install it, I'm done with XP on this machine06:52
genoobietoo slow.  XP can run on 256MB ram, but it's a dog06:53
Humbuckerxp isnt slow, itself ...06:53
HumbuckerMaybe your virus scanner xP06:53
genoobienah, no anti-vir06:53
genoobieit's an old machine06:53
=== edson is now known as Guest56366
genoobieI was debating whether or not to dump another $20 into it for more ram06:54
knome$20 is a little.06:54
Guest56366How do I restore the default settings in Xubuntu?06:54
knomeif you go up from 256, you will get *lots* more than worth $20 :)06:54
Guest56366I messed up my desktop in installing themes help06:54
genoobiebut figured I would try xubuntu first and see if I can get some mileage with a PIII 800 / 256MB06:54
genoobieyeah, but is it *really* worth it?06:55
Humbuckerxfce is much wuicker than gnome, believe me :P06:55
knomegenoobie, yes. :)06:55
genoobieI'd only be going up to 51206:55
HumbuckerI like xfce very much06:55
knomeit is still worth it06:55
knomegenoobie, with 512 you can go few more releases ahead at least06:55
genoobieI installed xfce on an old bsd system06:55
knomeGuest56366, what about going to the theme interface and restore the default theme? (albatross)06:56
HumbuckerWhat means hrm?? xP06:56
knomeHumbucker, "he remains mysterious"06:56
Guest56366ok, theres one more problem06:57
knomeGuest56366, yup?06:57
Guest56366MY PANELS ARE GONEE06:57
knomeGuest56366, press alt+f2 and run "xfce4-panel"06:57
knomeagain, np.06:57
knomegenoobie, seriously, more ram NEVER hurts.06:58
genoobieis 133 usually backward compatible with 100?06:58
knomegenoobie, i don't know. depends on the ram and also if the motherboard wants to play with both 100 and 133 at the same time, even if the other was "downgraded"06:59
knomebut then again, i'm no hardware expert :)06:59
knomei just know how it accets usability, and between 256 and 512 there is quite a bit difference07:00
genoobiewell I'll see how it goes with 25607:01
genoobieif it's a dog07:01
genoobiethen I'll consider 51207:01
Guest56366whats the hotkey for restart?07:01
genoobieI saw some on ebay for $10, but now I can't find it07:01
knomeGuest56366, there's no such key unless you specify one yourself, and i don't suggest that.07:01
knomeGuest56366, use the "action buttons" applet (an arrow + a door)07:02
knomeGuest56366, only takes 2 clicks07:02
genoobieokay I'm looking for wireless settings07:06
ubottuWireless documentation, including how-to guides and troubleshooting information, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs07:06
genoobieknome, supposedly works out of the box...07:09
genoobiebut no lights are on the card...07:09
knomegenoobie, have you checked if it's enabled in the bios?07:09
genoobieit's not a bios option07:10
knomeokay. is it a laptop?07:10
knomeis the wlan adapter builtin?07:11
genoobieit's a PCMCIA card calling for the acx driver07:11
genoobieit appears to be07:11
genoobieI mean the site calls it "out-of-the-box"07:12
knomeis there any buttons to enable/disable wlan?07:12
genoobieit's a separate PCMCIA card07:13
Humbucker0.o Doesn't ubuntu offer out-of-the-box wlan support??? With arch I could activate it in the installer :P07:13
HumbuckerThat's strange in my opinion07:13
knomeHumbucker, it does, but there is problematic cards07:13
genoobieI mean ordinarily the lcds are lit up on the card07:14
genoobieLike i said, it's a ACX driver, and according to the page, I'll need ndiswrapper07:15
genoobiefor wpa support07:15
knomeoh, okay..07:15
genoobiebut the card is not responding07:15
knomei have no experience on pcmcia wlan cards, sorry07:16
ubottuWireless documentation, including how-to guides and troubleshooting information, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs07:16
knomemaybe just browse the forums07:16
genoobieknome, do you have a link?07:35
genoobieor a suggestion on how to get this stupid card to work?07:35
genoobieI'm stuck, I'll admit07:38
knomegenoobie, ubuntuforums.org07:44
knomegonna get a few hours of sleep now ->07:44

_Pete_just ask13:54
ubottuPlease 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. :-)13:54

memetmorning all15:16
memetI'm trying to get apturl to work with FF315:16
memetgood morning15:39
memetI just installed xubuntu and I'm having some small problems15:39
memet1) the performance is terrible15:39
memetI thought the OS would outperform windows15:39
knomememet, with what hardware are you running xubuntu?15:45
memetknome, 256MB ram + PIII 800 MHz, S3 graphics15:47
memetwinxp runs faster than this15:47
knomememet, 256 ram is somewhat little. do note that xubuntu 9.10 is an OS from 2009, xp is not15:47
memetthat's true, but even still15:47
knomethere's not but :P15:48
memetwell, then I need a different OS15:48
memetor just switch back to XP15:48
knomehave you got any chance to upgrade your ram?15:48
knomememory is cheap now.15:48
memetI'm sure I could15:48
memetbut why would xp >> this OS?15:48
knomeeven upping to 512 would make a difference15:49
knomesorry, can you rephrase?15:49
memetwell, it seems strange that winxp would run better than a linux + xfce15:49
knomesome linux distributions will run faster on that hardware, i suppose15:50
knomelike damn small linux or puppy linux15:50
knomethe drawback is that they are not as easy to use15:50
memetit just seems strange that launching an app is taking minutes instead of seconds15:52
memetrt-click on the desktop is *slow*15:52
memeteverything is slow15:52
knomei'm sorry, but complaining doesn't fix it.15:52
memetno I know, I'm just not sure where to look to fix it15:52
knomeinstall an older version of xubuntu, eg. 8.04, they work better with 256 ram15:53
memetwhat does version 9 give you that 8 doesn't15:53
memetI need WPA for instance15:53
knomeyou could also try the minimal cd, where you can select what software to use, and might be able to slim down the system a bit15:53
memetit's still 2.6, correct?15:53
knome(x)ubuntu has 2.6.2415:54
knomewpa should work in 8.04, however, the hardware compatibility list is smaller15:54
memetyeah, it just is slow15:54
knomeif you don't need to upgrade, you can consider installing even older versions, but that is totally NOT supported nor suggested.15:55
memetyeah, that's fine15:55
memetI can't use this desktop15:56
knomeconsider the possibility of buying some new memoery15:56
memetI suppose I could just buy the ram and reinstall xp15:56
knomewell, once you buy the ram you should test xubuntu first. if it is fast enough then15:56
knome(at least as you already have it installed)15:57

Sysifedora and centos17:06
_Pete_I am using 9.10 with kde317:06
Sysithere are xubuntu livecds17:06
_Pete_and on servers debian17:06
Ov3rf10w_Pete_, 9.10 is shit xD17:07
Ov3rf10w9.04 is the best version17:07
_Pete_Ov3rf10w: works for me17:07
Sysiit works in some cases yeah17:07
halwhat is the difference of xfce vs xubuntu?17:07
_Pete_hal: xfce vs gnome17:07
Sysixubuntu in ubuntu with xfce17:08
ubottuXubuntu is Ubuntu with Xfce instead of !GNOME. More info at http://www.xubuntu.org and http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/ - To install from Ubuntu: « sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop » - Join #xubuntu for support - See also: !Ubuntu and !Xubuntu-Channels17:08
Ov3rf10wi tryed 9.10 and do not like it17:08
halxfce is less bloated i imagine17:08
_Pete_hal: thats the purpose of it17:08
Ov3rf10wxfce is maked for performance17:08
Sysibut it seems to fail a bit :/17:09
_Pete_but as a developer17:09
halon what?17:09
_Pete_they both use same code base17:09
Sysixubuntu could be lighter17:09
_Pete_what can really be difference17:09
hali tried puppylinux. now thats is lighter, and DSL but they are missing much17:10
_Pete_with my quadcore/8G&/some nividia card17:10
_Pete_there is no difference17:10
Sysii may get 10.04 if it's great, otherly i wouldn't like to use apt17:10
_Pete_except with KDE417:11
_Pete_that is noticably slower17:11
halKDE is nice but bloated17:11
halfor my system anyway17:11
_Pete_I like kde317:11
_Pete_it has ALL the tunes youn can twiddle with17:12
Sysii've never liked any kde17:12
halso do i..but my unit is a little old17:12
Sysixfce is easy to get look good and be nice to handle17:12
Ov3rf10wkde is kde is sucks17:12
_Pete_but me being HC nerd17:12
_Pete_no wonder17:12
hali may try xfce17:13
Sysireal nerd use openbox :b17:13
Sysihal: how old?17:14
TheSheepreal nerd write their own wm17:14
_Pete_does they also use n900 ?17:14
Sysilubuntu or crunchbang should be good17:14
hal05 i think. dell 24017:14
Sysi_Pete_: some of them17:14
hal1gig on ram17:14

Sysi_Pete_: that sounds nerd17:16
_Pete_Sysi: 5p hint17:16
_Pete_I am the one of those17:16
halcan xubuntu use openoffice?17:17
Sysiyou just have too much time :P17:17
Sysihal: of course17:17
hal9.04 is better you said right?17:17
Sysiwell, for me it was17:18

Aquinahy! I wanna upgrade one of my personal systems from K7 (MSI KT6 Delta FISR w. AMD Athlon XP 2600+ and DDR-SD-RAM) to K8 or K9. Everything else will be the same. Do you think my cusomized Xubuntu 8.04.3 will handle that?18:07
AquinaAre all drivers in kernel? Should I uninstall the non-free ATI driver for my Radeon 9550 Pro in case I choose a new Mainboard with onBorad graphics? What about my audio chipset. I'm using some AC97 VT82?? chip. Will I have to reconfigure lots of things regarding that?18:22

nickybattsWhat's a good ftp client?23:06
TheSheepinstalled by default23:06
Ov3rf10wnickybatts, filezilla23:06
nickybattsfilezilla... yea23:06
nickybattsI've heard of that23:06

nickybattsDoing it now... thanks :)23:07
nickybattsAnybody here gotten EVE online to work with Xubuntu?23:07
SiDiHi there23:09
SiDinickybatts, you may want to ask for help in #wine23:09
SiDiit should basically be all the same than under another distro23:10
nickybattsThought so, not too familiar with WINE however23:10
nickybattsOkay, I will check it out thanks23:10
SiDinickybatts, EVE online used to have official support but it doesn't anymore, so this may mean its not working for everybody anymore. ANyway I advise you to have a look at appdb.winehq.org23:10
nickybattscool thanks23:11
nickybattsHa.. I have so many desktop.ini pics in all my backed up files23:11
SiDiits files automatically created by windows23:12
SiDienjoy :/23:12
nickybattsCan I delete them easily>23:13
SiDifind -name desktop.ini | xargs rm23:13
SiDiit will go through your whole home23:13
SiDimay take a while23:13
nickybattsI did a seach using the built in app, but I can't interact with them23:14
SiDiI prefer the command line way xD23:15
nickybattsIs that the exact command?23:15
SiDifind -name desktop.ini will search through your whole home directory for all files named desktop.ini23:17
SiDi | xargs <appname> will take the result of the command on the left and give it as a parameter to <appname>23:18
SiDiso | xargs rm will remove the files that were found23:18
SiDi(that works only if the files dont have spaces in their names though - there's an extra bit to do for files with spaces)23:18
SiDiThe correct command would then be: find -name desktop.ini -print0 | xargs -0 rm23:19
