Rene_SHmm dunno girl, might wanna check that out02:37
visordo you people have problems with rhythmbox taking too much time to load the songs and build the playlist?02:38
LifesizeKenDollvisor: mine seems fine, it takes about 5 seconds for 11 gigs02:38
Rene_SNo i dont have anyproblems with rythmbox02:38
hypa7i1haven't tried that, bob202:38
hypa7i1oooh and i am able to boot into the full livecd but it dies after like 2 minutes02:38
lemsx1mirak, lol. i get your point... ... you might be able to do a simple script that creates a .desktop file for all files in /usr/bin :-) and then put the .desktop files in /usr/share/applications ;-)02:39
hypa7i1like, gnome loads, i open firefox, i open the terminal, poof, it reboots02:40
visorLifesizeKenDoll: uhmm then i shall figure it has something to do with either samba or characters in spanish :S02:40

Temetsorry LifesizeKenDoll , I can't02:50
LifesizeKenDollTemet: why not?02:51
bluefoxicybob2:  Just a passing thought, rather than sitting through the installer, maybe actually boot into a usable system and install leasurely02:51
bob2wasabi_: that's debian, not anything to do with the netinst side of it02:51
wasabi_I want to plop the ubuntu cd into the server, run a command which asks me config questions, and have clients work instantly. ;)02:51
lemsx1mirak, once you have a terminal the possibilities are limitless02:51
Temetconfigure button in xmms is not active LifesizeKenDoll02:51
wasabi_bob2, i mean setup of the net install process.02:51
wasabi_actually, i know little about d-i02:51

mirakwithout nautilus you can't do much in gnome02:52
bluefoxicybob2:  yes, it would; except that also you don't need a big CD full of installation data.  I prefer the concept of LiveCD with Installation Process available so the user can keep one CD around.02:52
miraklemsx1: nautilus don't work02:53
bob2bluefoxicy: ok02:53
lemsx1mirak, you have to first get to gnome (gnome-session) and then from a session you will be able to fix gnome completely... don't worry too much... its simple02:53
wasabi_bluefoxicy, you'd have to package the software on one CD twice. Once as packages for the install, and again for the bootable os.02:53

bluefoxicyImagine that the Ubuntu LiveCDs gave two main:  "Ubuntu LiveCD," "Ubuntu Installer."  The Ubuntu Installer would be a Curses (or X11 if you fancy) Debian-Installer doing Net-install; while the "Ubuntu LiveCD" would be a LiveCD from which you could either do liveCD things or run a GUI based Debian-Installer.02:55

bluefoxicyhypa7i1, gen:  Alright, but consider the LiveCD just being augmented.  It would gain possibly 20-40M in its image size, correct?  This could be ignored if you prefer a separate CD (you may want to just download the 20-40M netinstall CD for example, or you may want CD based installs); but it would follow the "Swiss Army Knife" philosophy: you may just be interested in a knife, but there's a saw and a screwdriver there if you need02:58
bluefoxicyit.02:58
lemsx1mirak, k, did the panels came back? if so, try adding things to it (like the Gnome menu)02:58

JDahlbob2, you cannot build documention with latex2html (e.g., try cd /usr/lib/python2.3/doc/templates; sudo ../tools/mkhowto howto.tex). For that to work you need to manually copy the "html" directory from the python source to /usr/lib/python2.3/docs07:46
Tsjoklatwant more Chris? :)07:47

JDahlbob2, no - the packager simply forgot to include the "html" directory - and I expect he has a link to the python source html directory (or setup and environment var), that's why it works for him07:50

djtansey_is there a way to do a network install of ubuntu? preferably a network install CD -- i have no floppy and don't wnat to download all the stuff i don't need. thanks08:47
hypa7iadjtansey_: not at the moment afaik08:48
visorkoko775: well something maybe that has to do with libraries, i have warthy08:48
arun--koko775: if you want to execute the application from anywhere, you need to define a $CLASSPATH env and add the jar file ot the classpath08:48
hypa7iafor now i'd just grab the iso djtansey_08:48
punkassif u wanna use java-package here is a great little howto08:48
punkasshttp://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/25159308:48
koko775how do i define those?08:48
punkassthat sets up all your paths etc08:48
djtansey_hypa7ia: i am... again. PITA -- downloaded it from the primary UK site and the iso was corrupted! quit after recording just a bit of it. happen to know any good US mirrors?08:49
Treenaksdjtansey_: take the "broken" ISO and use rsync to fix it08:49
djtansey_hypa: that can get more than the 115 K/s i'm getting from using archive.ubuntu.com's jigdo file08:49
Treenaksdjtansey_: or use the .torrent08:49
djtansey_Tree: tried the torrent. after a few hours it was only downloading at 2.5 K/s08:50
TsjoklatTreenaks: torrent junkie :P08:50
Treenaksdjtansey_: I'll seed :)08:50
punkasskoko775: at the bottom of the page is the one you want08:50
hypa7iai found the spain mirror to be good08:50
djtansey_Tree: how might i do rsync? would it just rewrite the file? how does it fix it?08:50
koko775gtg08:50
hypa7iadjtansey_: rsync syncs only the different bits08:50
TsjoklatI usually use the German ones08:50
djtansey_Treenaks: if you feel like it. can i just use the regular torrent?08:50
Treenaksdjtansey_: afaik it does checksums of chunks or something08:50

edulixwell I'm going to reboot and start trying configurations: nolapic, noapic, acpi_irq_isa=7 ...01:01

bob2in what?01:31
bob2aka "it's not a general setting, each app has to support it"01:31
Thijsin gnome01:31
bob2more specific01:32
Thijsi've seen some cool screenshots of firefox being transperant, and filebrowsers etc.01:32
ThijsI was wondering how to do that, but couldn't find any info :(01:33
sjoerdyou can use transset to make whole windows transparent01:33
sjoerddon't know if it's package for hoarty yet01:33
Thijsyes, but where do I get transset?01:33
Thijsno it's not i suppose, apt-cache search doesn't spit out anything01:33
bob2it won't be packaged01:33
bob2since x.org only entered ubuntu 7 days ago01:34
Thijsso can it be installed from sourdce?01:34
sjoerdyou can always get it from X cvs.. but it's just a toy to make nice screenshots :)01:34
willis it beneficial to use x.org instead of xfree86?01:34
bob2it supports some hardware better01:34
bob2it's probably not worth upgrading from warty for it01:35
Thijsits just to look cool really, I suppose its still too unstable to call it benificial01:35
Thijsi've been running hoary for about 3 days now, but no complaints yet, just had to do some tweaking while doing the distupgrade, and some Xconfig stuff got messed up01:36

seb128Tsjoklat: yeah, that's a devel version of gtk+ released yesterday with some problems (static build doesn't work and gdm doesn't start)02:38
Tsjoklatseb: so I wonder if there is a fix02:38
seb128Tsjoklat: if you want to fix it feel free, patches are welcome02:38
mirakbob2: well, I see the point of ubuntu, wich is to provide a set of well supported applications etcetera, but what is nice in linux is to have "options". But I agree that for the basic end user target, he doesn't have to be bloated with unecessary stuff. That's what debian menu is made for isn't it ? end of the rant :)02:39
Thijsogra: deb http://people.ubuntu.com/~daniels/ xcompmgr/, is that all i have to write?02:39
seb128bob2: that's a sensible question. We don't want to reacreate the mess of the debian menu ...02:39
bob2mirak: yes, you obviously have options, gnome in debian uses the debian menu02:39

bob2seb128: hehe, right02:39

mirakbob2: I consider this as a really small feature02:46
Tsjoklatmirak: ubu has been pretty good with adding launchers.. so far I only had to add one02:47
xf_ok, i assume things in universe don't create menu items, then?02:47
seb128xf_: if you think than an app should have a menu entry fill a bug report about it (the app has to provide a desktop file)02:47

bob2thoreauputic: that sounds reasonable to me, dunno how feasible it is, code-wise02:48
xf_almost none installed menu items02:48
seb128xf_: the debian menu is a mess, too much useles stuff for the standard users02:48
Thijsogra: I did, came up with only some /usr/share/doc and /var/lib/apt things02:48
mirakseb128: I am a standart user02:48
xf_i agree, but that's why i liked the fact debian had two menus02:48
seb128xf_: the standard user doesn't want "xdvi" in his menu02:48
xf_and it put the 'mess' inside a submenu02:48
ograThis: try: or dpkg --listfiles transset|grep bin02:48
xf_sure, but a standard user is going to get lost if they install something via synaptic and then they can't find it02:49
seb128mirak: and you probably don't want xdvi in the menu :)02:49
mirakseb128: soon you will see standart users bitch about having to manually create icons to applications they just installed02:49
Thijsogra: nothing02:49
xf_mirak: 100% agree02:49
mirakseb128: probably, but if I install amarok or umbrello or eclipse, I want to have them in the menu02:49
seb128mirak: that's a transition to a common menu in the freedesktop standard between GNOME/KDE/..., we just need to provide .desktop files for apps which need it02:49
ograThijs: probably its not ready yet.....i will try it on my hoary box later today....02:49
Thijsogra without the grep I only get /usr/share/doc02:49
seb128mirak: transitions need work and bug reports to point the problems02:49
thoreauputicseb128: the problem is the "standard user" expects to find a menu entry, and thinks something is broken when he/she doesn't02:49
Thijsogra: right, ok.02:50
Tsjoklatagwibowo: apps02:50
bob2seb128: can we just get debian to include the desktop files and then get menu items for free in ubuntu?02:50

Tsjoklatso far only Alexandria didn't get in the menu02:51
Tsjoklatbut easy fixed I say02:51
seb128mirak: that's easy, all the file in /usr/share/applications/*.desktop are added to the menu according to the Category used in the .desktop02:52
seb128xf_: I disagree, I don't want "xdvi" in my menu02:52
JanneMso in principle there is no obstacle to have one .desktop file that will place the app correctly across several desktops and distributions02:52
agwibowoTsjoklat: thx!02:52
xf_seb128: is a standard user going to install xdvi?02:52

JanneMseb128: then it's a bug if it shows up in the menu02:53
Tsjoklatzenwhen: greeter job today02:53
mirakseb128: I don't want either, however, having a menu with all apps that you just drag and drop in the menu would be nice. I though it was the purpose of the debian menu. I talk about the concept, not how it's implemented. I don't know how it is handled in debian menu, but *.desktop files seems a nice way to do that02:53
seb128JanneM: it's installed because of some depends02:54
JanneMstill a bug, I'd think02:54
seb128JanneM: why ? the binary is installed02:54
Tsjoklatmirak: I find the debian menu rather hidious.. it tosses everything and anything in it02:54
JanneMan app that needs a dvi viewer should have dependencies that can be satisfied by whichever one you happen to have installed02:54
RubenVanyone else experiencing freezes when modprobing ndiswrapper on boot?02:55
seb128xf_: you think that the debian menu is nice ?02:55
thoreauputicseb128: I guess if you installed, say, lyx, you would end up with xdvi in the menu, right?02:55
xf_seb128: it's not, but it's better than not having the menu item there02:55
JanneMbut once it is on the system, it should of course be in the menus by default02:55
bob2RubenV: you need to talk to the ndiswrapper people02:55
seb128xf_: so we disagree on this02:55
seb128xf_: I've no problem at all with the current menu02:55
xf_seb128: cool, disagreement is healthy02:55
seb128xf_: but I agree than some apps out of main need a desktop file02:55
RubenVbob2: ok, but i was wondering if it's an ubuntu thing02:56
RubenVoff to the ndis channel then02:56
seb128xf_: I just don't want all the entries you can find in the debian menu02:56
mirakTsjoklat: me too. But as I said what I like is that I can just drag launcher items, and put them in the normal menu. KDE have this kind of menu handling system, and that's usable.02:56
JanneMseb128: there is no way for the xdvi package to magically know if you want to have it in the menu or not - but it is a lot easier to remove a menu entry than to add one02:56
xf_seb128: me either02:56
Tsjoklatmirak: that is true02:56
seb128mirak: I've said that 10 times before, just use applications:///02:56

bob2xaero: what are you trying to do?02:56
seb128xaero: you can't02:56
JanneMxaero: preferably not at all02:56
mirakseb128: IF the menu debian was available in debian:/// and that you could just drag the icons, in applications:/// , would you find this acceptable ?02:56
xaerobob2: install nvidia-glx in my ia32-chroot02:56
bob2xaero: the dependencies are there because it really really needs them02:56
xf_seb128: applications /should/ create menu items by default, like in debian, though.  a bug should be filed if you don't really want the app there, imho02:57
Tsjoklatbut I did find the older way of setting prefences in gnome nicer02:57

johnnybezakis there a way to open new window inside the old window? on mac os 9 where i suppose the finder was "spatial" you could option click and it would open inside the old window, can you do this with nautilus?02:59

ograbob2: i pull them from firefox typeahead ;)03:00
JanneMjohnnybezak: I didn't even use a graphical filemanager until s0patial nautilus03:00
mjrjohnnybezak, I don't think so, but you can do shift-doubleclick or doubleclick with middle button, and the old window is closed simultaneously03:00
johnnybezakJanneM: yeah its nice and basic, ive only used kde up till now but gnome is pretty nice: simple and effective03:00
stvnjohnnybezak: you could either use the browse mode or use shift-click/middle-button-click this will close the parent window03:00

seb128xf_: if you don't remove it you don't move forward03:02
johnnybezakJanneM: yeah i use flux as my WM so i just tab them03:02
mirakseb128: is that you ebastien Bacher ?03:02
seb128mirak: yes03:02
=== ogra is just improving his python skills
xf_seb128: i guess the mentality is to force package maintainers to add the new freedesktop .desktop files?03:03
seb128xf_: sort of yes03:03
mjrjohnnybezak, oh, and of course, there's the browse option in the file menu03:03
seb128xf_: at least to get bug report if stuff are missing for user and to add them03:03
ogradoes anybody think its worth to follow this path ? --> http://www.grawert.net/startup-settings.png03:03
xf_ok, understand that, but i'm sure there's still a better solution to the problem03:03
seb128xf_: the freedesktop standards should give a common menu between desktops03:03
JanneMI had no idea that debian hadn't already moved to the freedesktop menus long time ago03:03
xf_with debian it won't matter a whole lot because unstable is a moving target, and i'm guessing sarge will be frozen before this happens03:03
xf_but this affects you guys for the next 6 months, at least03:04
bob2xf_: there really aren't that many people complaining03:04
seb128JanneM: the debian menu has moved to the freedesktop format now IIRC03:04
bob2at least judging from here and the user list03:04
mirakseb128: where is located the content of applications:// ?03:04
xf_you probably will once adoption rates increase03:04
seb128mirak: that's a real mess, you don't want to know :p03:04
JanneMheh03:04
xf_and it'll probably scare off users. i'm already installing fedora core 3 on a machine i was installing ubuntu on now, for example03:04
mirakseb128: yes I want :)03:04
bob2xf_: really, most people don't care03:05
RubenVogra: if it uses the debian kernel things correctly, yes, looks great03:05
johnnybezakxf_: cos of the menu?03:05
bob2xf_: and I hope you filed bugs on the packages you think should have .desktop files03:05
JanneMxf_: I have fc3 on one machine as well. It feels good to be spoiled with excellent gnome-based distros :)03:05
johnnybezakdebian must have one hell of a menu03:05
ograRubenV: thanks....:)03:05
xf_johnnybezak: yes. it sounds stupid, i'm still sticking with ubuntu on my 2nd desktop machine, but this is for an install where users will drive the package manager to install things03:05
xf_yet they're not adept enough to use the command line, or find binaries03:05
seb128mirak: /usr/share/applications/, /usr/share/control-center-2.0/capplets/ and gnomevfs vfolders in ~/.gnome2/vfolder/03:05
RubenVif the debian menu makes it's way into ubuntu then i'm back off to gentoo03:05
xf_JanneM: heh, choice is good :)03:05
johnnybezakxf_: do these linux users actually exist?03:05
bob2RubenV: why?03:06
JanneMxf_: really, the only surefire way is really for you to babysit the installations03:06
TsjoklatRubenV: so am I03:06
xf_sure do, clients of mine03:06
RubenVthe debian menu is imho a perfect example of a horrible menu03:06
ograRubenV: the menu will be dropped in debian also :)03:06
JanneMjohnnybezak: yes - I have a couple too03:06
xf_installation isn't a problem, it's the users wanting to add new software later03:06
seb128xf_: how does fedora handle that ? they have a sort of debian menu ?03:06
xf_most users can drive synaptic fine03:06
RubenVusability below zero :)03:06
wfxhmmm, totem and rhythmbox makes always pobs...03:06
mirakhuh -> /usr/share/applications/kde03:06
JanneMseb128: they handle it the same way - ie. not at all, really03:06
bob2RubenV: a single submenu at the bottom of the gnome menu is enough to make you switch operating systems?03:06
xf_seb128: well, no, but they've ensured packages do actually add menu items03:07
Tsjoklatbob2: yes for me it will be.. going straight back to gentoo03:07
johnnybezakJanneM: i only did it on my one house mates comp, but it scared him too much hehe (i was sick of fixing windows for him :P)03:07
seb128xf_: as we do03:07
bob2Tsjoklat: why?03:07
mirakseb128: how can I add a new menu entry into the applciation menu ?03:07
xf_yeah, but not for universe03:07
seb128xf_: the supported part has meny entries03:07
Tsjoklathaving no menu; no locked menu was for me the reason to go to ubu03:07
seb128xf_: that's not the supported part ...03:07
RubenVbob2: that and the slow release/development kept me away from debian03:07
JanneMxf_: since my users are friends and coworkers, I have conditioned them to check with me when they want to add something03:07
TsjoklatRubenV: are you my twin?03:07
agwibowois that Ubuntu CD delivery for real?03:07
xf_seb128: sure, but there's plenty of software there that people will want to use03:07
bob2agwibowo: of course03:07
johnnybezakagwibowo:yup03:08
seb128mirak: open a applications:/// window in nautilus and create launcher here or drag&drop existant ones03:08
xf_and there's stuff in there that fedora ships, or one of the well known third party repo's maintain03:08
agwibowoi have ordered it, but haven't received it yet... almost 2 weeks now...03:08
bob2agwibowo: it's canonical's way of saying sharing the love03:08
Tsjoklatbob2:  I don't like it to be force fed something03:08
xf_yes, i realise it's a different angle, but i'm talking from the end user's perspective there03:08
agwibowoic...03:08
xf_it sounds stupid, but not having menu items for applications will scare off users03:08
RubenVTsjoklat: possibly although it seems very unlikely :)03:08
bob2agwibowo: yes, they're on their way03:08
agwibowooh03:08
bob2agwibowo: or will be soon03:08
agwibowohas anyone got it?03:08
bob2agwibowo: yes, some high priority orders have already arrived03:08
seb128xf_: we have menu items for useful apps (ie: the main part) and for some apps in universe03:08
bob2agwibowo: if you ordered after the first batch, you'll get yours mi-december or so03:09
TsjoklatRubenV: you named all the reason that made me leave too.. ex gentoo yourself?03:09
JanneMremember, this "not knowledgeable, but enthusiastic" user is only going to become more and more common03:09
agwibowoi see..03:09

agwibowoconvert them from micro$oft product to ubuntu03:09
bob2JanneM: some people need to balance those a bit ;-)03:09
RubenVgentoo for a long time, but tired of the build problems and the slow development of gnome packages03:09
mirakseb128: how to apply the modifications ? I must restart a session ?03:09
Tsjoklatbob2: yes... I mailed numerous ppl at debian and they told me they locked it on purpose so ppl couldn't mess with it anymore and they didn't have to deal with 'bug' reports...03:09
JanneMbob2: yep. people like us.03:09
xf_seb128: said in here before i'm more than happy to help, where do i sign up?03:09
xf_hmm, are universe packages 'frozen' like they are with the main distro?03:10
TsjoklatRubenV: same here03:10
xf_i.e. would adding a .desktop file be constituted as a change outside of that freeze?03:10
seb128xf_: yes, in warty but hoary is active03:10
Tsjoklatbob2: do a google about locked submenu.. you'll be amazed03:10
JanneMis there a good document on how to build .deps for ubuntu?03:10
seb128xf_: just filling bug report with a desktop file attached should be a good start to help :)03:10
bob2Tsjoklat: well, ok, but you seem to be biased against debian to begin with03:10
RubenVJanneM: looking for that one too03:10

wfxhmmm, also gnome-system sound are gone ???03:11
Tsjoklatbob2: after screwing around for two weeks.. being tosses around for another two weeks... wouldn't you be???03:11
RubenVbob2: nothing wrong with a bias against debian, as long as its justified03:11
bob2Tsjoklat: because you refered to all Debian developer's as "assholes"03:11
bob2RubenV: erm, whatever03:11
agwibowoby the way... i forgotten my login in ubuntu website, and their password reminder page is broken...03:11
Tsjoklatbob2: and for your information I run Sid and Sarge on two machines.. and I said arseholes not assholes03:11

bob2Gcc: as I said, 00:38:55           bob2 | you want 00:37:41           bob2 | Gcc: linux-source-2.6.8.103:41

bob2erm, was I wrong?03:42
Tsjoklatbob2: no03:42
bob2I'm 99.9% certain linux-source-2.6.8.1 is the kernel source in ubuntu03:42
matogra: was about to. I just hope this won't induce any problems since it includes packages I have installed from elsewhere (like marillat for instance, which I need for libdvdcss)03:42
thoreauputicbob2: the guy really didn't deserve any help - you were extremely patient03:43
ogramat: may be....libdvdcss2 is in the repo.....03:43
JanneMjohnnybezak: when I got mplayer, I had Marillat's repo and universe in my repo list.03:44
bob2JanneM: on ppc, it's harder03:44
bob2JanneM: since they're only built for unstable03:44
deFryskbob2, I'll ad that .01% for you to make it a 10003:44
bob2deFrysk: yay, thanks03:44
JanneMbob2: ahh, didn't realize it was a different arch03:44

bob2it's not too hard to rebuild, but I'm far too paranoid to distribute them03:45
