ficusplanetI think epiphany will be more liked after the next release - with the GUI for extensions and gnome-print and whatever else marco and christian cook up.01:46

nodarobertj: Yes01:47
nodarobertj: Actually, sorry, NO. :P01:47
robertjnoda: mozilla has lots of nice stuff01:47
nodarobertj: It's just in testing, so some functionality isn't hooked in yet. But it'll still be much smaller and faster than Mozilla. Unfortunately, at the moment it crashes very often01:47
=== timello [~tiago@] has joined #ubuntu
ficusplanetnoda, I think graphical (thumbnails and searching) history would be awesome.  For bookmarks, too, I guess.01:48
robertjSafari crashes quite often for me01:48
robertjFirefox still crashes some, but not nearly as often.01:48
nodaficusplanet: I've been thinking along the same lines. On the other hand, Beagle might render that unnecessary.01:48
HWolfFirst thing I see on this thing is that it doesn't have the google search integrated, which I think is a must-have. :-)01:48
robertjI'd love to see both backends be able to endure endless streams of garbage html01:48
nodaficusplanet: I was considering implementing a Storage extension... but Storage is kinda dead nowadays and I'm not sure it's the "right" way to do it.01:49
HWolfnoda, sorry for the comment, but it looks a lot like IE to me. Makes me shiver. :-)01:49
ficusplanetnoda, True, if we could feed beagle screenshots, though, that would be amazing.  And beagle won't get widespread acceptance until mono legal are sorted out.01:49
nodaficusplanet: Maybe we can finish Python or C# bindings for Epiphany... that'd get more extension developers I think :)01:49
nodaficusplanet: It already feeds beagle screenshots, doesn't it?01:49
tolstoyThe thing I like about epiphany is that it can be integrated into gnome in ways that don't make sense for a cross platform firefox.01:49
ficusplanetnoda, Oh, I didn't know that.01:49
HWolftolstoy, give me an example. :-)01:49
nodaficusplanet: Actually... maybe not. No, it probably has snippets, like Google01:50
tolstoyHWolf, native widgets.01:50
nodatolstoy: unfortunately, Epiphany doesn't use native widgets with the Mozilla backend. The gtk-webcore backend does, though01:50
ficusplanetnoda, Some kind of RSS integration would be nice/timely/in-with-the-Safari-and-Firefox-fad01:50
tolstoyHWolf, maybe integrated bookmarks with addressbook and GAIM etc.01:50
tolstoynoda, but it could.01:50
nodatolstoy: yeah, we've been thinking about that, too. That'd be cool. But how would it work? :)01:51
=== geppy [~geppy@c-24-0-83-218.client.comcast.net] has joined #ubuntu
tolstoynoda, i mean, maybe it would be too painful to patch native widgets in, but that's the kind of thing I mean.01:51
robertjnoda: Speed is good, memory matters to me almost not at all as long as it doesn't leak01:51
nodaficusplanet: What kind of RSS integration is useful? It seems to me that "automatic bookmarks" stuff is just somebody who was bored and wanted to find something to code. What does it do?01:51
HWolfHey noda, I was wondering, how are the gnome priorities. Is it like A cool, B work, C lean&mean, or another combination.01:51
robertjAutomatic bookmarks are dumb01:51
jdubnoda: try it.01:52
nodaHWolf: 1. It Just Works :)01:52
tolstoynoda, I don't know what neat things could be done with a more "native" browser, but at least you wouldn't have to justify against the needs of windows.01:52
amathishow can I restart the sound server?01:52
ficusplanetnoda, In the least we need clicking an RSS feed to bring up a helper app to subscribe to it - preferrably one that works with all 3 major gnome RSS aggregators.01:52

HWolfIs there any real effort to streamline gnome more, code-wise? Most programmers you need to whip into writing sleek code, is my experience.01:53

thoreauputicnoda: I know this is controversial, but I prefer Galeon (although the 1.2 series was better IMO) Why was Galeon not pursued rather than Epiphany? Epiphany seems less sophisticated to me..01:56
nodaficusplanet: So far we have the bookmarks (which may be getting Peter Harvey's cool auto-hierarchical-bookmarks patch merged in)01:56
Mojo_JojoHikaru79, /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin/java01:56
Hikaru79OK :)01:56
Hikaru79Now what distro are you using? Ubuntu?01:56
Mojo_Jojoyeah i'm using ubuntu01:56
Hikaru79Open up .bashrc in a text editor01:56
tolstoyii  epiphany       0.5.1-1        Clone of BoulderDash Game01:56
nodarobertj: What is it? :)01:56
jdubtolstoy: epiphany-browser01:56
tolstoyAh. ;)01:56
Mojo_JojoHikaru79, ok its open01:57
HWolfHm. Under epiphany there is no quick-reply option on the ubuntu forums...01:57
Hikaru79Add this line at the end:01:57
nodathoreauputic: Check the logic on the Galeon web page, it makes sense :)01:57
robertjIt's what the sidebar should be in a spatial nautilus, a gateway to other "spaces" that you can use to drag things between01:57
nodathoreauputic: Basically, because Galeon had turned into a giant flame-fest.01:57
Hikaru79export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin01:57
nodarobertj: I can see that being useful. Those'd be your File Selector shortcuts?01:57
Mojo_JojoHikaru79, do I have to log out then back in after?01:57
thoreauputicnoda: sad01:57
Hikaru79Nah, should be enough to just save the file01:58
nictukujdub, I see. I do not want to start a flamewar here. But does linux/X/gnome miss something to run "fine" in a low end machine, or is it just too "feature-full"? I mean, win98 runs fine here.01:58
Hikaru79And try again01:58
ficusplanetthoreauputic, The epiphany code is also way cleaner/more readable than galeon's.01:58
robertjYup, same as in Save As01:58
nodaficusplanet: Some code.01:58

ficusplanetnictuku, Windows 98 is 6 years older than GNOME 2.8 as well.01:59
nodaficusplanet: Crispin's code in Galeon is great.01:59
jdubnictuku: it's more fun working on new stuff than fixing old code :)01:59
tolstoyhm. epiphany doesn't immediately obey the "text below icons" thing, or the removal of it.01:59
nictukunoda, I know. I use fluxbox, but yet I don't get the same results. I would have to use dillo, and don't even think about listening to mp3. again, this is not a complain, don't get me wrong.01:59

=== Mojo_Jojo [~Mojo@d205-250-56-39.bchsia.telus.net] has joined #ubuntu
nodaficusplanet: When I made my select-stylesheet extension, I copied code from Galeon. It was hilarious -- most of the code was absolutely perfect, and then there were about 100 lines of utter garbage. :)01:59
Mojo_JojoHikaru79, I still get the same problem :(01:59
Hikaru79I think I may know why02:00
nodanictuku: Try skipstone as a browser, maybe? It depends on less than Epiphany02:00
Hikaru79export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin/java02:00
Hikaru79Use that instead02:00
Hikaru79The thing is, I use the SDK02:00
Hikaru79Not the JRE02:00
Hikaru79So I'm not sure exactly what the path is02:00
Hikaru79But it's something similar to that02:00
nodatolstoy: yeah, that's because Epiphany's toolbar is editable. The egg-editable-toolbar does some weird things.02:00
Hikaru79You could probably look around those files yourself to find the right path too02:00
robertjnoda: also, note the following are missing from the links ;) ~/Desktop ~/ and unmounted disks02:01
nodatolstoy: wait a second... no, there's no good excuse for that! Damn :)02:01
Hikaru79The idea is, you have to add that directory to your path02:01
Hikaru79So that Ubuntu recognizes where Java is :)02:01
Hikaru79And then it'll work  ^ ^02:01
Mojo_Jojobut it is in my path...isnt?02:01
robertjnoda: how do you feel about that?02:01
nodaSo, I'll compile a list, then: Things Epiphany Could Use To Be More Awesome02:01
HWolfBtw, to the gnome-devs. Sorry i am a bit agressive. My first impression with gnome years back was that it took ages to download all these massive mozilla libraries, and then when I booted, I had like 3 browsers, and 4 mail clients.02:01
nodarobertj: I'm not sure getting rid of Desktop is a good idea... I keep lotsa windows open :)02:01
nictukunoda, never heard of skipstone. Thanks for that =] 02:01
tolstoynoda, but I can't even remove those redundant text labels using epiphany's toolbar edit!  Hm.  Maybe a bug in this version? Last I used had that sort of thing working.02:02
nodanictuku: It's kind of dead I think :(02:02
Hikaru79Mojo_Jojo, apparently not =/02:02
jdubHWolf: gnome didn't ship a browser in an official release until 2.402:02
nodatolstoy: Sounds buggy. If it doesn't do what you expect, it's buggy. File a bug :)02:02
robertjnoda: why do you need Desktop?02:02
nodarobertj: In case there's no desktop on my screen.02:02
Mojo_JojoHikaru79, so what should I do now?02:02
Hikaru79Did you change the line?02:02
Mojo_Jojosorry...newbie :(02:02
nodarobertj: Like, if I've got a window maximized02:03
tolstoynoda, okay.  I'll have to do a search.02:03

kappututhanks Hiky :-)02:03
robertjNoda: one time fix. Go to Documents, select View Parent, drag Desktop into Documents02:03
HWolfI've got no idea which I first installed. I used KDE for a bit, after that Gnome was a massive improvement. I just feel that linux is about options, and thus you should get something that works shipped standard, but allow it to be replaced rather then have people run something different besides.02:03
Mojo_JojoHikaru79, actually I left both lines in there haha02:03
robertjBam, no need for Desktop anymore02:03
nodarobertj: True dat02:03
Hikaru79=P Err02:03
Hikaru79Should be OK02:03
Hikaru79Now just try again02:03
Hikaru79If not, just get the SDK02:04
nodaI used to use Blackbox, then KDE... when I tried GNOME 2.0, I never went back.02:04
Mojo_Jojodamn...where can I get the sdk? I didn't see it on the site?02:04
nictukuthere is another doubt I have and I can't ever get a good neutral answer: is X really "slow"? from my user point of view, it has a bad latency. Is that so, or only a repetitive mantra between some users (X is slow) ?02:04
Mojo_Jojooh how do I remove the old one??02:04

=== liar_ [~liar@] has joined #ubuntu

Hikaru79As for deleting the old one just remove the files02:04
nodaspacey`ki: It is. Well, gnome-terminal is fine, but its backend is crappy02:04
tolstoyI started using gnome pre 1.0. ;)02:05
nodanictuku: No, X is not slow.02:05
Mojo_Jojook so just remove the /usr/java??02:05
jdubHWolf: linux is about cloning unix and providing an interface to your hardware. it's a kernel.02:05
robertjSo the guestion remains: why do we have a Desktop?02:05
tolstoyKDE was much more solid, but I just couldn't stay away from gnome, for some reason.02:05
spacey`kinoda, especially with a lot of output terminal can take up to 70% cpu. ;p what backend is that?02:05
nodaspacey`ki: Erm... vte I think02:05
spacey`kinever heard of it :p02:05
nodaspacey`ki: It's annoying, I know. It takes more processing power to actually print 'make' output than it does to comiple :P02:06
spacey`kiuhu :)02:06
nodaspacey`ki: It's been around forever. Before that there was another one which was fast but crashed.02:06
jdubspacey`ki: vte is the terminal emulation library that gnome-terminal uses.02:06
Mojo_JojoHikaru79, which one do I download? http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/download.html#sdk02:06
spacey`kiwell they should drop it then :P02:06
jdubnoda: no, zvt was difficult to read (codewise) and didn't do i18n/utf-8 or a11y.02:06

jdubMatt|2: no02:45
WWalf: Try right-clicking in a submenu under Applications.  You'll see several options.02:46
Matt|2jdub, how about with reverting to the old artwork? Synaptic says that if I force the package to be the older version, I have to remove mozilla-firefox02:46

jdubMatt|2: the artwork is unrelated to your aterm issue02:48
jdubtolstoy: yes02:48
jdubtolstoy: (it shouldn't be in the menu anyway, but that does need to be fixed)02:48
Matt|2jdub, i have understood that. But I simply like the older artwork more. Do you know why firefox depends on the new artwork?02:48
jdubMatt|2: because it includes the default homepage02:49

holycowwould it be fair to characterize ubuntu as a subset of customized debian packages?04:09
HrdwrBoB no04:09
HrdwrBoBubuntu is <304:09
mhesshas anyone tried Expocity?04:09
holycowhow much customization is there actually? seems like quite  a lot, however, ideally one would hope it would be simply an adjunct repository that replaces/upgrades certain packages no? or are is the customization much deeper?04:10
HrdwrBoBwell, especially given that ubuntu uses GNOME 2.804:11
HrdwrBoBand as well as a whole host of other stuff04:11
HrdwrBoBthe core is quite different04:11
Pizbitholycow: They took a snapshot of sarge around june, then brang in selected updated packages and added customisations for the sake of usability and whatnot04:11
jncare there problems with ubuntu and windows networking?04:11
PizbitOR something along those lines.04:11
HrdwrBoBthe 'universe' packages, however are simply debian packages04:11
Pizbitjnc: Nope, samba:)04:11
HrdwrBoBrecompiled to suit ubuntu04:11
jnci need to print to an epson 870 that is share from a windows XP box04:11
jncon debian sarge, i tried configuring it in CUPS04:12
jncbut it was not authorized04:12
holycowokay interesting04:12
jnci don't know why but it thought it required a password04:12
jncand i could not find where to provide one04:12
holycowi'm trying to wrap my mind around the idea of not running debian proper04:12
holycowi love the updates in ubuntu, i have a hard time letting go of debian04:12
HrdwrBoBholycow: I didn't have a hard time04:12
HrdwrBoByou install it just once04:12
holycowafterall ians company tried the same thing04:12
HrdwrBoBand you see the niceness :)04:12
mdzholycow: Ubuntu is a complete Debian-derived distribution which includes carefully chosen defaults and enhancements from the installer through the desktop and more04:12
mdzholycow: it's more than just a some customized packages04:12
mdzs/a some/some/04:13
Stalione I have few wireless networks accessible (lucky me) but I want to only connect to mine. During my initial install I left the wireless card pick whatever was accessible (linksys network in this case).  I think becasue of that its using it as default. what config file do i edit to be able to specify my wireless network settings?04:13
=== willys [~willys@] has joined #ubuntu
mdzStalione: computer->system configuration->networking04:13
holycowhow much of the customization is being submitted back to debian proper as proposals? ubuntu has a lot of great ideas04:13
MagicFabjnc> still there ?04:13
TheMusomdz: How would one go about setting up wireless on the console?04:13
TheMusoTo save settings.04:13
mdzjnc: stock cupsys does require a password; Ubuntu cupsys is modified to allow administration by users in the lpadmin group04:14
MagicFabjnc> I searched the forums for "network install", there was this:04:14
mdzTheMuso: /etc/network/interfaces04:14
MagicFabjnc> http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2068&highlight=network+install04:14
jncMagicFab: thanks!04:14
TheMusomdz: Thanks.04:14
Stalionemdz, :-) That was the first thing I treid but it errors out saying "Failed to run network-admin as user root: Child terminated with 1 status"04:14
kapputumdz: how do I keep my wireless connection from dropping ?04:14
holycowoh i see right, a lot of ubuntu will never make it into debian proper because of the debian social contract and security and organization04:14
mdzholycow: we send all of our bug fixes upstream, other things on a case-by-case basis where they make sense04:14
holycowokay makes sense04:14
mdzStalione: did you remember to type your login password?04:14
HrdwrBoBStalione: did you enter your password?04:14
holycowmdz, cool04:14
Stalionemdz, however if I use iwconfig, I can change the card settings04:14
Stalionemdz, yes.04:15
jncwould it be fair to characterize ubuntu as a spawn of debian?04:15
mdzholycow: right, many of the choices that we've made are distribution-wide policy changes, and so Debian would need to make a decision as a group to go in that direction04:15
lifelesshaha. 'spawn of'04:15
mdzStalione: and you can set all of the same options in /etc/network/interfaces04:15
willysHave a HP PSC-750, the printer part work fine. Can't get the scanner to work or see anyplace to set it up. On other distros I use ptal-init, doesn't seem to be there. Any ideas?04:15
mdzStalione: /usr/share/doc/wireless-tools/README.Debian04:15
Stalionemdz, thanks. thats what I was looking for...good old config files.04:16
lifelessI so need that on a t-shirt. Warty, as a charicature, with the caption 'spawn of debian'04:16
mdzjnc: that would be fair, yes04:16
holycowmdz, has any discussion been had around getting together with other organizations and putting together something along the lines of active directory (in the sense that ad is more than just ldap) ... gnome/ubuntu/ad would really be superbly killer04:16
mdzjnc: you could also think of it as an evolutionary step :-)04:16
holycowthe reason i ask is the thought occured to me that all debian packages that have the need could be patched up to support ldap to various degrees for example04:17
jncmdz: debian is kerry, ubuntu is edwards ?04:17
holycowand ad style permissions/environment controls, could really be killer as an idea anyway04:17
mdzholycow: I'm not intimately familiar with active directory; what does it provide beyond authentication/account management?04:17
ljlaneDoes ubuntu straight out-of-the-box handle floppy disk automouting?04:17
HrdwrBoBfloppy disks?04:18
holycowi'm a newb as well, but ad provides dhcp controls as well as environment and profile management which affects the users accounts04:18
PizbitHrdwrBoB: Those things on the 5th floor of the world computer museum:)04:18
jncnot sure what ad is04:18
jnci will find out eh?04:18
holycowi.e. one can control the start menu, and various apps that support it04:18
HrdwrBoBactive directory ?04:18
mdzljlane: if by automounting, you mean automatically mounting when a disk is inserted, I don't think that can be done with floppy hardware except by continuously attempting to access the disk (there is no way to detect the presence of a floppy in the drive)04:18
MagicFabHow do I make Ubuntu mount my USB key ?04:18
ljlanemdz: ah04:19
PizbitMagicFab: Should be automatic04:19
mdzholycow: hm, so site-wide configuration04:19
HrdwrBoBljlane: which on PC hardware is retarded04:19
mdzholycow: yes, we've talked about some similar ideas04:19
MagicFabA "usb0" disk is detected in "Computer disks" but I can't access it04:19
holycowso for example, one could theoretically add a push model to gnome/ubuntu/debian, push apps, customize users environment, control systems via schemas, etc.04:19
holycowmdz, cool, just curious04:19
holycowmdz, i would be willing to pay for such a feature04:19
HrdwrBoBholycow: many people do that now in theiur own environment04:19
mdzMagicFab: should be automatically mounted and a window opened on the desktop04:19
holycowwith even a limited number of apps supported04:20
jncMagicFab: crap.  it describes using PXE / etherboot04:20
jncnot supported with USB-ethernet04:20
mdzMagicFab: what kind of filesystem do you have on it?04:20
MagicFabmdz> FAT1604:20
holycowHrdwrBoB, i run 175 systems accross 4000 kms worth of land area *ie. coast to coast*04:20
MagicFabmdz> It's a JumpDrive Trio04:20
holycowhaving a unix environment that has the ad style capacities would be very helpfull as we are at the very least moving to debian04:20
holycowperhaps ubuntu depending on research :)04:21
MagicFabmdz> running on ubuntu without any upgrades (yet)04:21
holycowand considering its all open source.... we can far outstrip even microsofts wildest dreams of an integrated environment04:21
mdzMagicFab: did you upgrade from Debian or install fresh?04:21
mdzholycow: are you looking at commercial support options?04:21
MagicFabmdz> fresh install, no updates after that (haven't got the Wifi installed yet)04:22
holycowmdz, yes, but novell is out of the question vis a vis suse04:22
mdzMagicFab: assuming you installed the final 4.10 release, there are no updates except security fixes04:22
holycowit has to be debian or debian based04:22
mdzholycow: I meant support options for Debian04:22
MagicFabmdz> ok - strange it doesn't mount04:22
max_my wireless connection only works if its not encrypted...any ideas04:22

djtanseydoes anyone here know of a sync (one-way) utility that would let me sync my HD (or just some directories) to an external (USB) drive? only one way though (so it doesn't copy it back to my harddrive if it is on my external but does copy from my harddrive to my external)04:27
Pizbitwillys: If you mean virtual desktops then yes, and you can add to the taskbar "Work Space Switcher"04:27
holycowsweet, i think with debian you guys will be able to offer many price points, and unique product in comparison to say redhat04:28

timothyrushibhai: dunno if it's parallel, but one thing you might try if you're running into the same thing with K3B that I just did yesterday: if you can make an image (which shouldn't need it to see your burner at all), see if you can then select "Burn CD Image" (go to the Tools menu at the top of the K3B screen, then select the CD submenu, and "Burn CD Image" should be the bottom choice of the...07:41
timothy...resulting submenu.)07:41
timothyMy K3B worked fine one day, then the next day decided that it could not detect a suitable burner, but I found that the above worked for me; for some reason it could see the burner fine when burning a previously prepared ISO, just not when burning a new CD assembled with its cool disc-content editor.07:42

thewolfHmm, one thing lacking from the website: images of the product. Are there any?10:33
p0windahI didnt copy anything into ~/.fonts/10:33
p0windahI just drag & dropped from my home folder into the fonts:/// folder10:33
stvnp0windah: copy the font to ~/.fonts/10:33
jdubp0windah: by copying into the fonts:/// window, you *did* copy it into .fonts :_)10:33
jdubp0windah: and a few moments ago, you verified that it was there :-)10:33
jdubp0windah: if there's an error when you double-click the font, that indicates that something might be wrong - what was the error?10:34
p0windahwell I can see it in ~/.fonts/ with another file called .vfs-write.tmp10:34
stvnjdub: sure? because my font in .fonts doesn't appear in fonts:/// but it does appear in the lists10:34

PunkBuster_not quite sure, the bootloader wont load it, and windows install doesn't find it either12:40
|trey|PunkBuster_, thats cuz they default to not repartition... SUSE and Mandrake care so much that they decided to even make it easier for you to have a shitty OS installed...12:41

ograrapha: cs423x is for you04:28
mjrrapha, I'd recommend setting it yourself via the BIOS then, and tell the setting to the proper module manually04:28

raphaogra: There are many options for that driver. I know I can configure an AdLib port, a "just a port", and an SB port in the BIOS, plus two DMA channels and an IRQ. But the BIOS says nothing about DMA sizes, which are driver options, too. Any idea what the driver might expect here?04:31
edulixwell, then if I try to use one, that would be the swsusp 2.1 for 2.6.9, I guess04:31

poin_tajross_: cool. what controller is it hooked on? how's the performance compared to PATA and SCSI?04:49
despI'm trying to find out if  the ubuntu installer is always supposed to generate an initrd04:49
Mithrandirdesp: it is04:50
despMithrandir: ah. do you know where should it place the generated initrd?04:50
ajross_poin_t: I cant compare it to scsi as I dont have a scsi drive but i can say its definitely worth going SATA over PATA04:50
Mithrandirdesp: /boot/initrd-$version04:51
ajross_I have a KT8 VIA board (ABIT) it works great04:51
poin_tajross_: why? what's the improvement that you feel on yours?04:51
ogradesp: still trying with your old world ppc ?04:51
ajross_i have two similar vintage 120GB drives, one sata one pata, sata is best04:51
Mithrandirpoin_t: the cabling is a lot easier to handle.04:51
despMithrandir: on my system the partitioner doesn't automatically create a /boot partition. do you think that if I create one by hand, the initrd will get placed there?04:51
despogra: yup04:52
Mithrandirdesp: then it's on your root partition, in the /boot directory.04:52
