phlaegelso... anybody tried changing keyboard shortcuts? mod4 (aka super/windows key) doesn't work as a modifier for me. anybody else?02:17
Chriffercheck out the keyboard config applet thing02:19
phlaegelthat's what I'm talking about.02:19
ChrifferI had to mess with it to get my right alt working with a dvorak map02:19
Chrifferthere are some options on the third tab02:19
phlaegelI select a function to map, hit mod4, and it assigns it without another key.02:19
Chrifferthis isnt in the shortcuts this is in the keyboard setup02:20
phlaegelyeah, just realized that's what you meant... looking now02:21
phlaegelonly thing I see there is that by default super is mapped to the win keys, which is what I expected. the problem is the shortcut applet doesn't recognize it as a modifier.02:22

diemanits getting to be fairly complete02:45
mdzzack: more likely it was fixed in debian and hasn't yet been fixed in ubuntu02:46

Kamion(not my strongest area of the installer ...)02:58
zackhmm, it'll be great when debian has an installer that can ask all its questions first :)02:58
Kamionnetcfg is basically a massive state machine of state machines02:58
Kamionzack: that's not really possible, by definition many of the questions rely on hardware detection that takes place after udeb retrieval which depends on earlier questions02:59

Deft_uazeem, could you tell me the sequence that's supposed to happen when I plug in a new usb storage thing, or maybe more useful, this was happens when I try:03:14
mdzelmaya: another possibility is that your system has a second sound device, and the wrong one is found first03:14
Deft_uazeem, running g-v-m in a terminal, it tells me that it can't mount (bas superblock or too many mount fs), but it doesn't create any new mount point that I can see03:15

Deft_uazeem, mount (as root) straight to /mnt, works fine, and then surprisingly opens up in nautilus03:16

mdzapparently, if /etc/modprobe.conf exists, modprobe ignores /etc/modprobe.d03:22

Deft_ujdub, damn, it won't see any usb drive now... and sidenote, you can't kill a system process without a the root password, so that dialog is pretty useless in system monotor03:42
pantz_i have a SD card from my camera that i want to mount at /media/camera instead of /media/sdc103:43
HrdwrBoBRobar: use sudo :)03:43
HrdwrBoBsudo command03:43
RobarJust wondering... I noticed I never setup a root password during the install. I know I can do 'sudo passwd root' to set one, but is this okay to do? Or is there a reason that the Ubuntu devs decided to leave that out?03:43
HrdwrBoBand put in your password03:43

RobarAlso, I have an NTFS volume at /dev/hdb1. I can mount it and read from it as root, but I can't seem to read it or mount it as a normal user, no matter what I do. How can I allow a normal user to read the mounted NTFS volume?03:46
azeempantz_: why do you want to mount it somewhere else?03:46

jdubwe'll have to make it so you can rename devices nicely and stuff03:47
pantz_where is the automount feature getting the path /media/sdc1 from?03:47
jdubhoary ;)03:48
Kamionpantz_: the device name03:48
pantz_i will just change it to /media/sdc103:48
pantz_Kamion, so i cant change it then?03:48
Kamionpantz_: by running pmount yourself, yes, otherwise I think currently no03:48
azeem03:46 < Kamion> you can say 'pmount /dev/hdc3 movies' if you want03:48
Kamionhmm, possibly you can, by configuring udev to have the device show up as /dev/movies03:49
Kamiondunno how feasible/good-idea that is03:49
pantz_lol - ok now things are confused - i just used the movies mount as an example b403:49
matthewjshow do you search for packages with apt-get? like apt-get search mplayer or whatever03:50
Kamionsure, but you get the idea03:50
Kamionmatthewjs: apt-cache search03:50
pantz_i want to mount my SD card (/dev/sdc1) as /media/camera03:50
justdaveor use Synaptic and hit the Find button in the tool bar03:50
Kamionpantz_: ok, so perhaps (warning: offhand idea at 3am) you can make udev cause the SD card to show up as /dev/camera rather than /dev/sdc103:50

Kamionthere's an APT HOWTO on the Debian web site, which is good bedtime reading03:52
AndyFitzapt-get install unrar isnt my friend atm03:52
HrdwrBoBmatthewjs: sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.lit03:52

pojo_Kamion: I'm using telinit 3 (I want to kill the Xserver so I can install the nvidia driver)03:55
pojo_Kamion: however, the x server continues running, and the runlevel doesn't really change.03:55
HrdwrBoBpojo_: I would have /etc/init.d/gdm stop03:55
tritiumKamion, just use the d-i template?03:56

lamonttesting->warty is (partially) a downgrade...05:43
lamontinstead of main/non-free/contrib05:43
lamontmain is supported, restricted is binary-driver-blob, and universe is (basically) the rest of debian/main05:43
lamontwarty version-froze end of June, so anything that went into testing since then is newer...05:44

lamontthe truly brave are welcome to pin warty > 1000 and cross their fingers, but it's _completely_ unsupported, and likely to fail05:44

lamontafter a fresh install, sources.list only has main & restricted - if you want more, and are clueful enough to add 'universe' to the end of the lines, then you're presumed clueful enough to know taht universe is not supported.05:45
lamontthe version ordering goes: woody <warty<sarge<sid05:46
lamontthe two paths are (1) upgrade from woody, or (2) install warty fresh05:47
FnyarOk - I'm curious exactly how I would upgrade from woody...05:49
FnyarI'm assuming I change my sources.list and then do a dist-upgrade, but what do I add in?05:49
Fnyaror...replace rather.05:49
lamontdeb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu main restricted (and maybe universe?) --> /etc/apt/sources.list05:49

tvon|X31Fnyar: http://wiki.ubuntulinux.org/Archive05:50
punkassdoes universe just contain additional packages, or newer versions of ones in main/restricted?05:50
lamontand the wiki probably has better instrs than my brain at thist point...05:50
lamontadditional - it's everything that's not supported (== the other 9000 packages)05:50
Fnyartvon|X31, lamont: thanks for the info.05:51
punkassah ok05:51
tvon|X31the main ubuntu archive has proven slow for me (since the prerelease announcement), I'd suggest trying a mirror listed on the wiki05:51
lamontpunkass: warty/main has 2146 binary packages (i386), universe has the 10995 others05:51
lamontbetween them, they're roughly sid as of June 28, modulo failures to build, and such05:52
lamontnon-free isn't in the archive, and contrib isn't yet, to the best of my knowledge, but may be considered for universe on a case by case basis.  Probably not for warty though.05:52

az[a] zelMacPlusG3: NetBSD has a project for OS X binary compatibility10:55
MacPlusG3az[a] zel: the big problem there would be the graphics layer... it's not X.10:55

elementalI prefer just having open source apps and the code to look at10:57
elementalinstead of emulating or running ports10:57
Lodurielinsn't it the purpose of GNUstep to have compatibility with OSX?10:57
Loduriel*one* purpose10:58
az[a] zelthey're not implementing cocoa AFAIK, or quartz even.. 10:59
subterrificLoduriel: don't think that has even been a GNUStep goal10:59
Lodurielat least GNUstep apps are working in OSX with the same code10:59
subterrificGNUStep's goal is to implement a free version of the OpenStep spec. GNUStep has been around a lot longer than OS X10:59
az[a] zelthat's the whole underyling /Application /System/Libary/Frameworks sort of thing eh?11:00
az[a] zeland the .app directories ?11:00
az[a] zelok, I don't know what OpenStep/NextStep is then :)11:01
subterrificOpenStep is a framework for building applications in Objective-C11:01
subterrifican API11:01
subterrificvery similar to Java or .NET11:01
MacPlusG3but compiled natively - so faster11:01
MacPlusG3but lots of dynamic features in the language11:02
Lodurielso... since OSX use this API, GNUstep apps can run in OSX, right?11:02
MacPlusG3and you can build an Obj-C gui part to a C/C++ app11:02
subterrificLoduriel: right, Cocoa is based on OpenStep11:02
MacPlusG3Loduriel: well... at least with minimal modification11:02

ElixStill not having luck with Pilot. I have 6 USB ports and I'm using a USB mouse. Are the ttyUSB# ports assigned in order, whenever they're requested, or does each specific port get the same number? According to lsusb, my mouse is on Bus 002 Device 003, and my palm is on Bus 001, Device 007. Should it still be using ttyUSB0 or ttyUSB1? Thanks.11:51

ElixSigh... I'm getting confused. Each time I press the sync button on my Palm, the Device number listed by lsusb gets incremented by one... Does that device number have anything to do with the device name in /dev? I've created ttyUSB2 through 10 (using "mknod /dev/ttyUSB10 c 188 3", "chown root:dialout /dev/ttyUSB*"), though they don't magically disappear like ttyUSB0 and 1...12:03

martinkscaroo: no, gnome-print12:49
mteiraWhat does it mean?12:50
mteiraIt's really anoying to create a document in a little free region on the desktop, and them have to minimize tons of windows looking for the new file.12:50

Kamionminghua: only if you really want to, it's unlikely to make things happen any faster :)02:38
az[a] zeljdub, just curious if there is a plan for 32 bit GTK+ 2.0 libraries for AMD 64 ? Also, a 32 bit mozilla (For proprietary plugins, e.g. flash).. one could always run the 32bit firefox from mozilla.org, but that requires 32 bit GTK+ 2.0 libs02:39
minghuaKamion: I won't bother then.  thanks.02:39

Kamionjdub: I have so many machines around here I get very confused about which is which :)02:41
jdubKamion: use case? remote logins?02:41
az[a] zelKamion, good 32 bit support on AMD64 distros hasn't been handled elegantly by any of the AMD64 distros yet, IMO.. debian/ubuntu seem to be on the right track though02:41
Kamionremote logins is another, certainly02:41
jdubKamion: 'unidentified keyboard logins' ;)02:41

Maydayi dont want universe, i want main :)02:42
jdubMayday: :-)02:42
jdubMayday: by final release, the version of firefox we'll ship will have rss stuff in it02:43
sanxiyngiard: swfdec cooperates with GStreamer (to-be-freedesktop.org-supported media framework)02:43

sanxiynrobertj: I think Debian configures X with DDC(Display Data Channel)?03:18
[Scizo] tseng, i know it's Dell's fault .. but still .. it's the main reason i can't run debian on it (that and ACPI < 2.4.24)03:18
Kamionmteira: we're not using prelinking, no03:18
sanxiynrobertj: It means the monitor manufacturer thought 1600 is good for it.03:19
tseng[Scizo] : https://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/show_bug.cgi?id=132203:19

jdubmteira: we do two optimisations, which will provide a leeeetle bit of help03:20
sanxiynrobertj: Debian should do same as Windows or Fedora or whatever, since resoultion detection is standard.03:20
robertjIMO, unless its the difference between 640x480 & 800x600 or 800x600 & 1024x768, refresh rate should trump all03:20
robertjsan: I bet they are doing some checks to weigh in refresh rate over manufacturer recommendation03:20
robertjwhich certainly seems sane in this case03:21
jdubmteira: first is compiler optimisations for the cpu - it works on i486, but is tuned for k7 and pentium403:21
Kamionsanxiyn: judging from Daniel Stone's periodic "aargh" screams about resolution detection, I don't think it's that simple unfortunately03:21
jdubmteira: second is linker optimisation, which can help apps start faster03:21
sanxiynKamion: Unfortunately. But it should be simple. :(03:21

_Hiro_[Scizo] , I'm more convinced that it's the hardware :/  a shuttle SS40G03:54
neillKamion: ok. Where can you get daily builds from?03:55
Deft_u_Hiro_, you can add drive icons to the desktop independently of home and computer or whatever, it's in App/Nautilus/Desktop in gconf03:55
Kamionrobertj: the current artwork isn't final, you'll be glad to hear03:55
Kamionneill: I posted links to ubuntu-users last night03:55
[Scizo] _Hiro_, i tried the redhat gnome mount thingy out on a box i setup for some newbs ... crashed 8/10 times, the rest of the times it wouldn't unmount03:55
robertjKamion: yeah, I know. I don't mind it except for the color03:55
_Hiro_ah, nice. I didn't knew that, thx Deft_u 03:55
Kamionneill: http://archive.ubuntulinux.org/cdimage/daily/current/, rsync access also available03:55
robertjScizo: Works fine in Core 203:55

_Hiro_if only supermount would work :P03:56
robertjIts in Ubuntu as well03:56
robertjHiro: umm, what?03:56
[Scizo] _Hiro_, so they got a few nice cd mount icons in their toolbar instead03:56
_Hiro_you know, supermount, the kernel option03:56
robertjHiro: thats old news03:56
robertjout of date03:56
[Scizo] robertj, well .. this was just around the time that FC1 was about to be released03:56
robertjhal/dbus does that in a non-broken fashon in Fc2 and Ubuntu03:57
[Scizo] besides . FC is rpm based *shudders*03:57

robertjGawsh, once composite hits standard i'm sure the bottom bar is going away for alot of people03:59
[Scizo] nice touch to include firefox as the default browser03:59
_Hiro_jdub but what if you minimize a window?04:00
jdub_Hiro_: i don't :-)04:00
robertjalt+tab ;)04:00
az[a] zelshould have a dock like OS X :D04:00
Deft_uI make the top bar autohide so I only have the bottom one on the screen most of the time04:00
[Scizo] jdub, naah .. i keep the workspace switcher ... ws1 for terminals and xchat, ws2 for evolution, ws3 for browser, ws4 for komodo and/or anjuta04:00

_Hiro_I suppose there is04:01
tseng[Scizo] : on the panel04:01
tsengtrash applet04:01

jdub[Scizo] : bottom panel, on the right04:01
[Scizo] _Hiro_, there is .. not sure if it's in universe though04:01

_Hiro_is there bootsplash support ?04:02
[Scizo] i really love how gnome is getting closer to OS X with every release04:02
az[a] zelwith a lot of laptops going wide screen these days.. it's good to have the panel on the left or right I reckon.. on OS X I have the dock on the left hand side04:02

Kamionlosing the bottom panel is definitely a win on smaller laptop screens04:03
[Scizo] robertj, it is .. but in it's own gnome way :)04:03
az[a] zelnah gnome still isn't like OS X.. it is in some ways, like the instant apply stuff, and the button ordering04:03
robertjI wish Gnome would team up with the EFF to take on spring-loaded folders04:03
[Scizo] well .. the gnome panel is a lot more usefull than the OS X panel04:03
Kamionneill: with a daily build?04:03
jdubDeft_u: yes, known bug04:03
az[a] zelbut it's like windows in other ways, like the tree menu for applications04:03
robertjOS X file navigation is a wonderful blend of browse & spatial04:03
[Scizo] and takes a lot less space04:03
az[a] zelyeah it would be great if nautilus worked like finder 04:04
[Scizo] robertj, az[a] zel : and then again .. not04:04
_Hiro_the ubuntu 6 month release cycle, does it mean that the repository of packages is frozen and every 6 months new tested ones are added?04:04
az[a] zeland if ejectable media had an eject icon embedded in the media icon (since pressing the eject button the cdrom doesnt work)04:04
robertjThe #1 (one, 1, uno) thing Gnome needs to do is take the bookmarks from FileOpen and stick them on the left hand bar for drag and open targets04:05
Kamion_Hiro_: fairly soon we'll open up hoary, which will be a development repository until it freezes; you'll be able to track it while it's in development04:05
robertj"That's not spatial," but it sure is useful.04:05
Deft_uaz[a] zel, right click, eject...04:05
_Hiro_Kamion, but for instance if you have gaiml 1.0.0 in the repos and a month later they release 1.0.1, what happens? you need to wait another 5 months?04:06
az[a] zelDeft_u, I've watched my g/f use the computer, and I don't think I have *ever* seen her right click, or command->click in OS X.. sticking the eject button on the icon makes it more obvious for those people04:06

robertjin 10.3 when you put in a CD-R it has the little burn icon on the disk04:07
Kamion_Hiro_: it's in universe04:07
_Hiro_woohoo :D04:07
az[a] zelI think there really isn't a need for a CD burning application..... there should be a burning API, so any app that wants to burn to CD can do so in its own interface04:08
neillKamion: don't think it's daily04:08
Kamion_Hiro_: not what you might call heavily tested, though; it only became installable a couple of days ago04:08
az[a] zelfor burning files, just use nautilus04:08
neillKamion: it's the default amd64 iso04:08

_Hiro_Kamion, well I just need a little something to burn dvdr, k3b did that fine before :)04:08

bolivaralbert001122: http://www.ubuntulinux.org/ubuntu/components/document_view05:33
Deft_uthat's the easy way, it's linux...restricted something or other, just search for restricted in synaptic05:33

hermes88Deft_u should I get nvidia-glx?05:35
Deft_uignroe them, just get the restricted modules package, it'll ge you all the things you need05:35
hermes88I think I already have it installed for 38605:36

hermes88Deft_u I alrady have restricted-modules installed05:37
hermes88Deft_u after installing nvidia-glx, do I have to make changes to etc/X11?05:37
Deft_uok, then you just need to run sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree8605:37
Deft_uselect nvidia as your driver, unselect glx and dri (?!) in the modules list thing, and accept everything else as it is05:38
scarooyep dri should be disabled05:38

Jaywe need to promote the Ubuntu, current giving CD away for FREE is a good way too06:29
Jaybut we now need to impress ppl by first sight, I think we need to redesign the website, just look some website like redhat.com06:29
toothpickseb128, for example crafty wasn't available via the sources provided so I just added sid's from debian.06:29
_Hiro_is there anyway I can download a package before installing ubuntu? I'd prefer not to mess with wires and I need the madwifi drivers and openvpn installed for that :/06:29
Jayppl first think about professionality06:29

seb128toothpick: the debian version is not compatible06:30
sladenJay: USB flash ?06:30
seb128toothpick: in /etc/dbus-1/event.d/hal remove --drop-privileges if you want06:30
Jayyeah!! USB flash is a good idea!06:31
Jaywe need some sponsor and some talente designer to design the shell for USB Flash06:31
=== renate [~renate@p54802724.dip.t-dialin.net] has joined #ubuntu
Jayjust think about selling a slick and pretty special shell USB Flash06:31
Jaywe also need a MASCOT for our distro06:32
sladenJay: hehe06:32
sladen_Hiro_: USB flash /06:32
Jayand we can order some cute puppy bear toy and sell them06:32
Jaycool idea heh?06:32
JanneMa flash stick with a ready-to-boot distro would be a little sweet actually06:33
Jaytrue true06:33
sladenyeah.  Net-install  on a 32MB/64MB flash06:33
JanneMplug in to any machine - x86 or PPC - and run06:33
_Hiro_damn don't have that :/06:33
SeTh_thE_SinNeRfollow others steps06:33
Jaybut the flash must have a good design shell!!06:33
JanneMrather, a "LiveCD", but flash, 06:33
sladenJay: and say `Hip2Bcool' on it06:33
_Hiro_sladen but where could I get the packages?06:34
JanneMwhere real system config changes are backed up on the flash device06:34
Chriffera bootable flash drive wouldnt be too tough06:34
JanneMbut transient stuff are ram only06:34
sladen_Hiro_: archives.ubuntulinux.org/.../pool/main/o/openvpn*/06:34
ChrifferJanneM, morphix can already do all that06:34
Chrifferanssuming the USB boot works right06:34
JanneMso, once you boot the flash device, settings of your mail accounts and so on will be updated on the device06:35
toothpickI'll play with some graphics ;) maybe I can help out there.06:35
Chrifferthat could be a 5 minute project almost06:35
toothpickI did a splash once for kanotix06:35

Jaythen toothpick, do a good one for ubuntu then06:35
Jayoh! It reminds me about the rise of glory RedHat 8!!!!06:35
Jaylike BlueCurve!06:36
JanneMmore like a user-updateable lieCD06:36
Jayb/c of BlueCurve, many ppl use RedHat06:36
JanneMBluecurve is pretty good06:36
tvon|X31I was never into bluecurve06:36
Jaythen now we need some talented gfx06:36
ChrifferJanneM, there is a Ubuntu liveCD around right?06:36
sladenhas anyone done anything about getting the KDE libs in Ubuntu using the GNOME theme ?06:36
Jayhow about we make a POLL ob website06:36
Chriffermade by alex?06:36
Jayabout what things ppl like about unique theme?06:37
JanneMChriffer: think so, ye06:37
toothpickThe default terminal icon I put on the gnome desktop is too big.06:37
Chrifferadd the CD persisiten minimod from the morphix website to that06:37
Jaythen make POLL, collect ppl opinions06:37
Jayand design our own theme06:37
tvon|X31sladen: not that I know of...full kde support is not on the drawing board, so I'm not sure how much work anyone is going to put into the theme matching06:37
JanneMwould be a mistake to push a unique theme "just because206:37
Chrifferand you can save all the temporary files to a multisession CD06:37
Chriffertheres a hewto around06:37
JanneMthere are several good themes around06:37
JanneMuse one of them06:38
tvon|X31IMO Ubuntu should just ship SmoothGNOME, but whatevas06:38
JayI know what u means JanneM06:38
JanneMSmooth is good, though a little more HIG love is needed06:38
Jaybut let thinks about real biz here06:38
Jaya distro that live forever06:38
Jaymake ppl remember06:38
JanneM"different" != "good" when it comes to business06:38
Jayis the one that has unique thing!06:38
JanneMmay be good for the /. crowd06:39
Chrifferfor a USB stick someone would need to smash Ubuntu into 220MB or so probably06:39
Jayand RedHat has done it06:39
JayBlueCurve is the one!06:39
Jaywe need our one06:39
Jaywe can tweak the Smooth06:39
Jaybut we need to design our icons06:39
tvon|X31I disagree, I think peple put to omuch stock in 'unique' themes06:39
JanneMJay: rehat has done it - once, as the undisputed leader, and still got a lot of heat from it06:39
tvon|X31An icon theme is a big project06:39
JanneMaim for using the Gnome default theme06:39
Jaythat's why we need some talented gfx designer06:40
Jayvolunteer one06:40
JanneMand fix problems with it and move upstream instead06:40
SeTh_thE_SinNeRqnx made it to 1.44Mb06:40
tvon|X31YOu will get someone with some intereste who will develop half a theme and then lose interest06:40

Jayyou know what?06:40
JayGarret, the one done the BlueCurve06:41
JanneMI mean, that's half of being a good citizen in this field06:41
tvon|X31eg, CleanView Base (the SmoothGNOME icon theme) basically does that, but is more based off of Industrial than GNOME icons06:41
Jaysomehow he has motivation06:41
Jayon his project06:41
tvon|X31JanneM: seriously06:41
JanneMeither SMooth or Indubstrial are good choices06:41
sladentvon|X31: ah, but eventually (eg. Umbrello), something will want to pull in and use the Qt widget set06:41
Jaybut loose interest at the end06:41
JanneMwhich one is a matter of taste as much as anything06:41
sladenChriffer: liveCD on multisession CDRW sounds interesting06:42
JayOK, for now... I think we should stick with Smooth06:42
JanneMpersonally, I'm partial to LightHouseBlue, but I'm strange in many ways06:42
SeTh_thE_SinNeRsladen very much06:42
JanneMgo with gnome defaults unless there are pressing reasons not to06:42
JanneMand then, consider if a patch upstream may not solve it better first06:43
=== SeTh_thE_SinNeR is now known as SeTh
=== SeTh is now known as Se7h
Se7hbetter now06:43
ChrifferMaybe I will play with some live CD's and flash based things06:43
Jaystock GNOME is good for now06:44
ChrifferIs 256MB the normal size for a flash drive?06:44
Jaydesign some good CD face06:44
ChrifferI'm not exactly the draw on a CD kind of person06:44
Jaysame here lol06:45
pepsianybody know why my keyboard doesnt work in the installer? im using a g4... the keyboard works fine in the bootloader, but then in the installer, it doesnt recognize keystrokes unless i hold the key down, and then the key sticks :(06:45
