MaxFramesi don't understand... i've removed the italian language support, i've set the default language to english, i've set the session language to english, and yet most of the menu items are still in italian :(01:17
MaxFramesis it a bug?01:17
graziebuon giorno MaxFrames. I dunno if it's a bug...have you searched launchpad?01:19
MaxFramessei italiano?01:20
grazieno. sono inglese01:22
MaxFramesi think the xfce menu file must be recreated?01:23
MaxFramesit contains mixed language items01:23
MaxFrameshalf italian half english01:24
graziethat sounds like a definite bug!01:24
MaxFrameschanging the language to english did not restore it01:24
MaxFrameswhat i did was this:01:24
MaxFrames1) add support for italian in the language support panel01:24
MaxFrames2) make italian the default language for new users01:25
MaxFrames3) make italian the current language for my current user01:25
MaxFramesimmediately, i noticed that not all the menu items and choices had been translated... some were still in english01:25
MaxFramesso I changed back the default language to english, both for my current user and for new users01:26
MaxFramesthis reset most things to english, except for the xfce menu which still contains items in both languages01:26
ormirethave you logged put and back in? (in case there is a cache that needs cleared)01:26
MaxFramesyes, multiple times01:26
grazieI think you should search launchpad for a bug that describes this...there may be a solution. If one is not already raised, report it yourself01:27

somerville32Try the alternative cd?06:42

=== somerville32 agrees.
grazieR2J2: freezes while running the partitioner from the installer don't seem that uncommon....I've seen it myself. You could maybe try setting up the partitions before starting the installatiion?06:45

=== hyper_ch needs professional help about a "home entertainment media server" :)
=== maxamillion knows nothing of the sorts and would not be a good source for help :P
hyper_chbasically what I was thinking off today is that I get some computer with a video out and network it also07:22
hyper_chthen I can plugin the tv at the computer07:22
hyper_chand then I rip all the DVD on the harddisks in there07:22
hyper_chso I that I won't need to use the dvd player anymore but can view whatever I want from the computer07:23
maxamillionhyper_ch: mythTV?07:23
hyper_chmaxamillion: what does it do? *smile*07:24
ubotuMythTV is a TV framework for Linux - Instructions for using with Ubuntu at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MythTV07:24
hyper_chmaxamillion: the reason for this is that I lend my dvd to people and I don't keep track who got what and I'm quite missing a few dvds07:24
maxamillionoh ... that's no good07:25
hyper_chso I thought why not get some computer and have it hooked up with the tv and then just rip all the DVDs onto the harddisks07:25
hyper_chthey don't cost much07:25
maxamilliontrue ... very true07:26
hyper_chmythtv is like watching tv through the computer?07:26
maxamillionhyper_ch: yes, but you can also stream saved video to the tv ... its like a linux tivo implementation with more flexabiltiy07:27
hyper_chI dno't know what tivo is07:27
maxamillionoh ...07:27
maxamillionhyper_ch: you know what a DVR is?07:27
hyper_chmaxamillion: nope...07:28
maxamillionhyper_ch: oh ... uhmmm... yeah, just read about MythTV, i think it will do what you want and a little more07:28
maxamillionhyper_ch: or check out GeexBox (its a linux distro all its own)07:28
hyper_chmaxamillion: and what tv/graphic card is required?07:29
maxamillionhyper_ch: no clue ... never done it myself07:29
maxamillionhyper_ch: they should have documentation on their site07:29
R2J2it really doesnt work to set partitions to install xubuntu :( tried running chkdsk as it told me, also running the disk partitioner before starting the installation.. what more can i try?07:29
hyper_chmaxamillion: cool :) thx for the info07:29
maxamillionR2J2: what version?07:29
maxamillionhyper_ch: anytime :)07:29
hyper_chR2J2: what system are you using? dapper? edgy? feisty? and what install? live/desktop? server? alternate?07:30
grazieR2J2: the alternate cd does seem to be much more reliable07:30
R2J2hyper_ch: 6.10 live07:31
grazieR2J2: the minimal cd is also good if you've got fast connection07:31
hyper_chgrazie: not on feisty :) the altnerate is still bugged with the partitioner I think07:31
R2J2hm, k ill try alternate07:31
grazieno we're edgy here07:31
hyper_chR2J2: did you do the "check cd for faults" at bootup?07:31
hyper_chfor defects :)07:31
R2J2hyper_ch: ye it was ok07:32
hyper_chR2J2: then try the alternate :)07:32
hyper_chthe text based install means only not to have such fancy graphics as in the livecd :)07:32
hyper_chR2J2: but not that you need to enter commands yourself :)07:32
R2J2yea well, just rly strange the it behave that way :( hehe07:34
grazieR2J2: think it took me 3 tries to install xubuntu from the live cd on x8607:35
hyper_chwell, for me the livecd always worked... but I know quite a few others who had troubles07:36

spasticteapotFaster, and GORGEOUS.10:50
posingaspopularspasticteapot, yea i just installed it the other night10:51
spasticteapotI swear....it's awesome!10:51
spasticteapotStill can't click-drag-select on the desktop, though.10:52
posingaspopulari wonder how kubuntu feisty will look10:52
posingaspopularand feel10:53
kalikianaspasticteapot, planned for xfce4.6 ;)10:53
spasticteapotAnd kinda annoying.10:53
posingaspopularyea i like kde much more than gnome10:53
posingaspopularim mostly new to xfce10:53
spasticteapotkalikiana: Are you one of the devs?10:53
spasticteapotposingaspopular: It rocks.10:53
spasticteapotVery elegant - kinda like Mac OSX, which I used quite a bit.10:54
kalikianaspasticteapot, Not quite, only testing and bug filing :)10:54
posingaspopularit's pretty good, havent gotten to the net on feisty xubuntu yet, my modem hates linux10:54
spasticteapotkalikiana: Well, thanks anyways!10:54
spasticteapotposingaspopular: What's up with your modem?10:54
spasticteapotDial-up, I presume?10:55
posingaspopularspasticteapot, no its dsl, it just hates linux or ubuntu, not sure which one it is10:55
spasticteapotEthernet or USB connection?10:55
posingaspopularit drops my connection to the internet all the time and is just weird10:55
kalikianaI have a dsl modem which will freeze usb detection, too :/10:55
spasticteapotkalikiana: What are the keys that allow me to tile my windows?10:55
spasticteapotposingaspopular: That should'nt happen.10:55
spasticteapotTry ifconfig.10:55
kalikianaspasticteapot, alt+f6 and alt+f7 you mean?10:56
spasticteapot...that's probbably it.10:56
posingaspopularspasticteapot, i did, i tried that and it didn't return anything in the terminal10:57
spasticteapotThat's a problem, then.10:57
posingaspopularwell no i tried 'sudo pppoconf' then i did 'pon dsl -provider' 'poff' 'plog' and 'ifconfig ppp0'10:57
spasticteapotOy vey.10:57
posingaspopularand the last four commands didn't return anything10:57
posingaspopularthats all i tried10:57
spasticteapotposingaspopular: I'd try getting a modem with a built-in router.10:58
spasticteapotThey're standard issue over here.10:58
spasticteapotYou configure all the DSL stuff through a browser-based menu, and don't need to worry about any configuration on the actual PC.10:58
posingaspopularspasticteapot, i have another router. gonna try to piggyback off the modem and see what happens. imj just waiting for my brother to come and help me out later this week10:58
spasticteapotNot gonna work.10:59
spasticteapotSome modems require config information and such from a PC. Others can send it themselves.10:59
spasticteapotOne of the reasons I like cable is that the modems act as gateways.10:59
posingaspopularyea i really just want to get all my comptuers online11:03
spasticteapotposingaspopular: Get a cheapo machine (P1 or even a 486 should do it) and have it act as a gateway for your system.11:03
posingaspopularwhat do you mean by gateway?11:04
spasticteapotHave the router connected to it, and make sure that all the settings are correct - run windows, if necessary.11:04
spasticteapotIt's the computer on the network that all the other computers connect through.11:04
spasticteapotYou'll need to set up Masquerade for IPtables postrouting...which is a huge pain in the kiester.11:04
spasticteapotHowever, it's the best way to get internet on your network - I spent three weeks before I found out how to do it.11:04
spasticteapotPlus, there are dozens of tutorials.11:05
posingaspopularahh see, i was just going to hack the systems to ninja the internet through the router i have11:06
posingaspopularthat i have to set up11:06
posingaspopulari duno11:06
posingaspopularthis wouldn't be an issue11:06
posingaspopularbut i REFUSE to run windows anywhere11:06
spasticteapotI don't blame you.11:06
spasticteapotThe problem with your type of modem is that it needs to be connected directly to a computer - not to a router or switch.11:07
spasticteapotHence, one computer can share the internet with the others.11:07
spasticteapotHowever, if that computer is not on 24/7, you're stuck. And it will slow it down a bit.11:07
posingaspopulari'll figure something out11:07
spasticteapotWell, the best solution is just to have a PC that's on 24/7 for the sole purpose of connecting to your modem - a Gateway.11:08
spasticteapotI spent a few weeks on this exact problem.11:08
spasticteapotAs an added bonus, using a seperate PC as a gateway will let you also add a firewall to your system, which is dandy.11:08
posingaspopularyea well the comp im on is always on. and its an xp machine, but i want to get rid of it for obvious reasons11:09
spasticteapotWell, then I'd set up an old machine with Linux (no GUI) and configure it.11:09
posingaspopularit would be alot easier if people would support linux11:09
spasticteapotNot enough money in it, though.11:09
posingaspopularspasticteapot, yea im going to install server ubuntu on a box and use that11:10
posingaspopularbecause i need a server for a project im working on11:10
spasticteapotThat'll do it.11:10
posingaspopularneed to get a stable connection though...11:10
spasticteapotYou can set up a combined gateway/firewall.11:10
spasticteapotOr just get a new modem.11:10
spasticteapot(I like option #2.)11:10
maxamillioncan also make it a router with GNU/Zebra ;)11:10
posingaspopularspasticteapot, im going to have to pm you for real info in a few days, when i have all my stuff together11:10
=== maxamillion goes back to his BMR relations
spasticteapotI spent three weeks setting up something identical to this - I'm no expert on Linux, but you managed to find the one thing I DO know how to do.11:11
posingaspopularspasticteapot, ha, yea i love when that happens11:11
posingaspopulari usually end up doing a !command in the support channels11:11
