Chil1Hello, does anyone mind helping me figure out what is wrong with my amarok...exaile! doesn't work very well, but amarok won't play any songs.12:39
maxamilliondoes exaile work?12:40
=== j1mc [n=jcampbel@157.199.22.99] has left #xubuntu []
Chil1max: It was buggy on my system, I'm running all of my songs off of an external HD, and it would recognize them, but it would slow the system WAY down.12:41
maxamillionChil1: ahhh ... yeah, running songs off an external hard drive through exaile might slow a thing or two down ... not sure what all python has to go through for external storage access12:43
=== maxamillion just installed exaile! and it dominates

Chil1Pumpernickel: Thanks, that should work.12:54
stimzright back again, does anyone know how to place filesystem and home directory icons on the XFCE desktop in 6.10? Young'n is a little linux illiterate12:56
stimzNo?12:58
Chil1No idea stimz, I'm new to xubuntu as well.12:58
stimzwhat do you think of it Chil1?12:58
Chil1I like it, this is the second day I've really used it, or any ubuntu for that matter, and its pretty smooth.12:59
stimznice, how long have you used Linux?12:59
Chil1Equally as long.12:59
stimzHey! WELCOME!12:59

BFTDstimz no problem01:02
maxamillionChil1: that's one step away .... you can hold onto your safety blanket for a while, but you will find yourself eventually thinking "wow, i used to use that?"01:02
Chil1Haha, yeah, xubuntu seems so much more efficient, it looks as pretty as vista but its not near as resource intensive.01:03
kebswitch to Beryl for lots more transparency and 3D fun01:03
Chil1Heh, I don't know if I have the system.01:04
maxamillionkeb: beryl is merging back with Compiz ;)01:04
keboic01:04
kebthat sounds like a Good Thing01:04
stimzheheh, I came across XFCE about three years ago, (no I have not been using linux that long) when I got back to England I found Ubuntu, fell in love and naturally drifted back to XFCE (my laptop is naff)01:04
maxamillionkeb: yeah ... i don't really care either way to be honest, i don't use either but i do think it would be good to get both communities working together towards the same goal intead of bickering over how things should be done01:04
Chil12 gig ram, Gforce 5200 FX 256, 2.9GHZ P4, the video card and the processor are sort of holding me back.01:05
maxamillionChil1: LOL!@#$%#^$! .... that will fly with beryl or Compiz01:05
stimzI'm currently running PII 800 128mb RAM 5mb Graphics and 11 GB HDD!!! W00T01:05
Chil1Okay....I stand corrected.01:05
kebi have 512MB ram, 1.7GHz processor and same graphics, Beryl worked ok for me01:05
maxamillionChil1: beryl+aiglx will perform really well on a machine like that ;)01:05
Chil1I might try it out sometime.01:06
maxamillionChil1: i know someone who rungs beryl on that graphics card with a 350MHz AMD K6-2 and 192MB of ram ... aiglx and the latest nvidia drivers puts all the rendering off on the graphics card and you only lose like 30mb of ram from the system01:07
stimzBFTD is it possible to symbollic-link to filesystem?01:07
Chil1So basically, windows = bloated and unefficient.01:07
maxamillionChil1: now you're getting it ;)01:07
Chil1heh01:07
stimzthats the understatement of the century.01:07
stimzlol01:07
BFTDstimz yes01:07
maxamillionChil1: errr yes, the answer to your question would be "yes"01:08
maxamillion:D01:08
stimzln -s / ~/Desktop should put a sybollic link to / on desktop right? Well it says the file already exists, but nothing on Desktop01:09
stimzoh and another thing, I just got RealPlayer 10 on Xubuntu and it ROCKS.01:10
kebi prefer mplayer01:10
=== maxamillion does too
maxamillionno ... actually vlc then mplayer01:11
stimzcan it stream realplayer?01:11
maxamillionbut i don't do much with media so i don't care01:11
maxamillionstimz: no ... i don't think anything but realplayer can stream realplayer ...01:11
stimzthought so...01:11
maxamillionlol01:12
stimzBFTD: ln -s / ~/Desktop came up with "file exists" no change on desktop01:12
maxamillionagain ... i don't do much with media, just xmms for netradio while i'm at work (which is where i am right now)01:12
kebwhats the stream url, i bet mplayer can01:12
stimzGoogle for one! (man I'm lazy...)01:13
keb:D01:14
maxamillionkeb: i think there is a cool one on sun's site about looking glass from back in '02 or '04... lemme find it01:14
stimz(I can't even be bothered to open a browser for a fellow linux friend. man...) Hang on keb, I'll get one.01:14
stimz(oh well)01:14
keblol not urgent01:15
maxamillionkeb: yeah ... here you go http://www.sun.com/software/looking_glass/demo.xml01:15
Chil1Hmm, anyone play any good free games?01:15
kebwesnoth01:15
stimzv01:15
maxamillionits a cool presentation ... just kinda blows my mind to see what Sun had already done for the 3d desktop (in java of all things) before anyone else01:16
stimzhttp://vodreal.stanford.edu/Jasper/island.ram01:16
stimzChil1: The best open software game I have played is TASpring01:16
stimzIts a complete rework of total annihilation, its just awesome01:16
stimzWesnoth is good too. But I prefer 3D RTS01:17
maxamillionChil1: nexuiz, netpanzer, solarwolf, pydance ... http://doc.gwos.org/index.php/Native_Games01:17
stimzLinux tome is an awesome resource01:17
kebstimz that plays for me if i open it and drop the rtsp: url into mplayer01:17
stimzhttp://spring.clan-sy.com/01:17
stimzdid it work for the sun site urls?01:18
maxamillionChil1: that site i posted to you is geared towards ubuntu users ... its a good source01:18
stimzChil1: look at http://www.happypenguin.org/01:18
Grey_LokiIs there a good website downloader available for Xubuntu? As in, something that can grab the entire content of a domain01:18
maxamillionGrey_Loki: i think there is a plugin for firefox that does that01:19
Grey_Lokimaxamillion, i'll take a look - thanks :)01:19
maxamillionGrey_Loki: np01:20
kebstimz it worked after i wget the original url and get the rtsp: url again ;)01:20
stimzkeb: Awesome, is MPlayer a dedicated video application, or does it play all media and audio? if so what are its other features like? (skins, visualizations, library search, internet radio ect)01:21
stimz?01:21
kebit plays audio as well01:21
kebthere are some skins01:21
kebit doesnt do anything but play media01:21
kebhttp://mplayerhq.hu/01:21
stimzcheers :D01:22
maxamillionstimz: also check out vlc .... http://www.videolan.org/vlc/01:22
stimzWill do Maxamilion01:22
kebyeah vlc is cool, it is more cross platform01:22
maxamillionstimz: there are versions for almost any OS and its in the repositories (universe branch if my memory serves me correctly)01:22

stimzoh yeah, I saw Songbird on a friends computer, it is open source right01:23
kebyou can use it to convince people to switch away from windows01:23
maxamillionkeb: yeah, i actually tried it first in v.0.1.4 or something back when i still had win98se01:23
maxamillionkeb: yeah, hand them open office, firefox, pidgin, and vlc ... that's pretty much what 70% of the desktop using world needs right there01:24
stimzmaxamillion: I've never heard of pidgin. whats that?01:24
kebme neither01:24
maxamillionit's gaim01:25
keboh hehe i have that01:25
maxamilliongaim got sued by AOL, they changed their name to pidgin like 4 days ago01:25
stimzoh right01:25
maxamillion:)01:25
keblol01:25
stimzsued for what?01:25
maxamillionstimz: well, gaim started as "GTK+ Aol Instant Messenger" and AOL didn't like that so they changed it to "gaim" and said it didn't stand for anything but AOL still didn't like that and after a few years of debate, gaim's legal advisors thought it would be a good idea to alter the name just for the sake of peice01:27
stimzOh, thats another thing, does either Mplayer or vlc handle burning and ripping cds, because thats one thing I have really found hard with linux.01:27
stimzAOL living up to its name ;)01:27
kebthere are other apps for cds and dvds01:27
maxamillionstimz: burning can be done easily with graveman or gnomebaker and ripping  .... i think exaile will rip01:27
stimzright, will look those up01:27
kebexaile is k3b ?01:28
stimzhowever I will save that for another day, it has turned Tuesday over here, and I need to get some beauty sleep! haha01:28

=== Grey_Loki continues with ze research!
Grey_Loki( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3184 )01:29
maxamillionGrey_Loki: really? ... you can write windows only plugins for firefox? ... didn't know that01:29
Grey_Lokiwell, I don't really use firefox - i prefer Opera. I look in the 'versions' link on that page, and it says 'plugin for windows' or words to that effect.01:30
maxamillionkeb: but i think they are doing a really good job of competing especially since the project is so new ... its _really_ nice (its in the feisty repositories)01:30
maxamillionGrey_Loki: interesting ...01:30
keblooks good01:30
maxamillionyeah ... i actually mainly use xmms because all i do is listen to net radio and it uses minimal system resources, in the event i did have a music library ... exaile would be where its at01:32

Grey_LokiChil1, TA-Spring?01:36
Chil1Yes.01:36
maxamillionLOL: http://fanboys-online.com/comic.php?cid=13801:36
Grey_LokiChil1, I believe there are installation instructions on their website, if they have a linux binary01:37
Chil1One of the lines I have to add is01:42
Chil1deb http://www.osrts.info/~tvo/deb edgy spring # Ubuntu Edgy Eft...01:42
Chil1Would I change Edgy Eft to something else since I'm running Feisty?01:42
Chil1Its the line to add it to the repository01:42
Grey_LokiI can't say, i'm afraid.01:44
Grey_LokiI can't think of a reason why it wouldn't work - I should think that Feisty is backwards-compatible with Edgy stuff.01:44
maxamillionChil1: if they don't have a feisty branch on their server yet, it would just error out when you do a "sudo aptitude update" so i say just try it01:45
maxamillionGrey_Loki: yeah, true .... it "should" be01:45
Chil1Okay.01:46
Chil1Okay, there's a step that says  Create directories for data files: mkdir -p ~/.spring/{maps,mods,base}01:53
Chil1So, that just means make a new folder right? lol01:54

Artemis3Hello there: Today i have done this: Installed ubuntu-server (7.04 beta), then did apt-get install xubuntu-desktop. When booting, i get no splash, X loads and a graphical login appears, after login the wallpaper changes and some icons appear. Thats it. No XFCE to be seen anywhere... Did i miss something?02:56
kebwhen you right click on the blank area, do you get a menu?02:57
Artemis3a small one iirc desktop related02:57
malnilionYou sure you're in xfce?02:58
kebyou should see one that has Settings, Accessories,..., About Xfce, Quit02:58

Artemis3maybe not? i simply installed xubuntu-desktop meta...02:58
Artemis3no i dont get those02:58
WaxyFreshi loaded the sources.list for fiesty yet sudo apt-get dist-upgrade isint working any ides?also how do i set up transparent windows?02:58
malnilionTry logging out and logging in making sure you're in xfce session02:58
Artemis3ubuntu-server default install, then xubuntu-desktop package02:59
Artemis3i did02:59
malnilionOkay02:59
Artemis3well i cant log out02:59
Artemis3the option doesnt appear02:59
Artemis3so ctrl-alt-backspace..02:59
malnilionctrl-alt-backspace :S02:59
kebWaxyFresh did you "sudo apt-get update" before the dist-upgrade?02:59
WaxyFreshyup03:00
Artemis3so nobody tried this route?03:00
QewArtemis3: tried alt+f2 then type "xfce4-panel" into the dialogue box?03:00
WaxyFreshnm a restart fixed the upgrade issue03:01
kebcool03:01
Artemis3no i havent tried but that seems a good idea03:01
WaxyFreshhow do i see how much free space i have?03:01
kebdf03:01
malniliondf is a good command :)03:01
Qewif that works, then you can right-click the panel to customise it.03:01
Artemis3how do you normally invoke xfce? whats the script or binary that loads it?03:02
malnilionArtemis3, that's a good question03:02
malnilionI used to know the answer03:02
Artemis3oh well ill try tomorrow, the machine is not here at home anyway ^^03:03
Artemis3just wondered if anyone tried the same03:03
QewArtemis3: startxfce, but you should have had gdm installed03:03
Artemis3i get the graphical login with the xubuntu logo, i suppose thats gdm...03:04
WaxyFreshxfce supports psudo-transparancy right?03:04
malnilionWaxyFresh, yeah03:04
kebthere is a transparency command called transset03:05
WaxyFreshso how much free space do i have?Filesystem     1K-blocks  Used Available Use%        3426896   2743680    509136  85% /03:05
malnilionThat would be in bytes, I think03:05

OGDAis it possible to install that system upgrader/degrader thats in feisty?10:09
malnilionOGDA without getting feisty?10:09
OGDAyeah10:10
OGDAin 6.06.1 if possible10:10
malnilionProbably, but is there a specific reason?10:11
BFTDso I can upgrade it easily10:11
BFTD:p10:11
malnilionOh...I thought the upgrade manager was in edgy as well...10:11
BFTDnope10:12
malnilionThat's weird...10:12
BFTDanyways this is dapper not edgy10:12
malnilionIs it possible to upgrade from dapper to feisty?10:12
BFTDI'm pretty sure it is10:13
malnilionhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/FeistyUpgrades10:14
malnilionIt says that you can only go from edgy to feisty :/10:14
hyper_chmalnilion: then go dapper --> edgy --> feist10:15
hyper_chy10:15
malnilionExactly10:15
hyper_chbut then I would install feisty directly10:15
malnilionBFTD, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EdgyUpgrades10:15
malnilionBFTD, you should have the update manager there in dapper10:15
malnilionHonestly, I find it kind of a pain to have to upgrade to an intermediate version of Ubuntu; a lot of packages would need to be redownloaded.10:17
hyper_chmalnilion: then don't upgrade and isntall feisty directly10:18
malnilionhyper_ch, I've got Feisty, I'm trying to help BFTD here :P10:18
hyper_chah ok :)10:18
malnilionIf I were you, BFTD, and I could reinstall linux, I would10:19
Catoptromancydoes Feisty make it easier to install drivers for USB wireless adapters that have no drivers ?10:19
hyper_chif there are no drivers what do you want to install then?10:19
hyper_chbut generally Feisty has a better hardware support so you may try if feisty supports it10:19
CatoptromancyIve found a few possible drivers10:20
malnilionI've yet to have something not work10:20
malnilionUSB works pretty damn well these days10:20
malnilionAlthough, I need to try my Saitek USB controller again.10:21
malnilionHaven't tried it since the upgrade to Feisty, but it registered in Edgy as a joystick, so it should work.10:21
BFTDthis song sucks10:21
malnilionWhich song?10:21
hyper_chCatoptromancy: you can try feisty... either it works or not... you have nothing to loose in that case10:22
Catoptromancygoogle has concluded that installing 2wire amoung other USB wireless adapters to be a pain10:22
malnilionOh, wireless via USB could be interesting10:22
hyper_chnext weekend I'll have to have a look at truecrypt in feisty :)10:23

OrionistiHello03:38
OrionistiI need some help in getting a weird device working in Xubuntu03:38
OrionistiI have a 170 MB PCMCIA Hard disk drive  "Viper 170"   that I can't access.03:38
OrionistiI can plug it in the laptop and it starts spinning but I can't access the drive03:39
OrionistiAny ideas?03:39
OrionistiHeh, maybe I'm asking for the impossible...03:41
OrionistiI got the hard drive inside a Canon Powershot 600 - a digital camera with half a megapixel from the year 199703:41
h3sp4wnI doubt it is impossible03:41
Artemis3its pccard ata drive?03:42
OrionistiYay, a speck of light =)03:42
Orionistiall it says is PCMCIA hard disk drive03:42
reaVeris anyone having problems with amsn lately?03:42
Artemis3wait, you said canon camera? you sure its not cf?03:42
reaVerlike, having it lock up?03:42
Orionistiwell the connector is PCMCIA and it says PCMCIA sooo... I'd guess it is pcmcia03:43
Orionistiand it is 10 years old - was cf around at that time?03:43
Artemis3i dont remember seeing canon cameras using pccard devices...03:43
Artemis3let me check., these conectors are very simillar03:44
OrionistiViper(tm) 170E03:44
h3sp4wnI don't remember seeing a digital camera in 199703:44
OrionistiModel 8170E03:44
OrionistiYeah, this is very antique03:44
Orionistithe HDD has a date of April 199703:44
Orionistiand it spins when I plug it in, cf cards don't spin, do they?+  ;-)03:45
h3sp4wnOrionisti: Are you certain the laptop you plug it into supports pcmcia ?03:46
Artemis3does dmesg shows your drive? apparently other pcmcia hds work03:47
Orionistithe laptop has a pcmcia network card so it supports it alright03:48
Orionistihow do I access dmesg?03:48
h3sp4wnOrionisti: pcmcia and cardbus are different though03:48
h3sp4wnanything un ancient would be cardbus03:48
OrionistiIt's HP Omnibook XE3 gc-cl if I remember correctly03:49
Orionistiok, do the old cardbus devices still state they are PCMCIA?03:49
h3sp4wnOrionisti: is the network card in lspci03:49
Artemis3Orionisti, just type that command in a console03:50
Orionistiispci...?03:50
Artemis3you might want to use dmesg | less03:50
Orionistinetwork card states to be pcmcia also03:50
Orionistiok I'll check it out03:50
h3sp4wnIf its in lspci its not pcmcia (afaik)03:51
Artemis3maybe a message like "pata_pcmcia"03:52
Artemis3eg: "scsi5 : pata_pcmcia"03:52
Orionistican't see such a line03:53
h3sp4wnYou need to specify base addresses etc with pcmcia03:53

Rich_li_nysorry I should have stated.04:03
Rich_li_ny6.1004:03
OrionistiI have 6.1004:03
Orionistiok I'm at a standstill again04:05
Artemis3Rich_li_ny, sounds like a refresh rate issue..04:09
Rich_li_nyOK..04:09
Rich_li_nyI went reconfigure the Oxor..04:09
Artemis3can you get your monitor refresh rates?04:09
Rich_li_nybut couldnt,, maybe I am tyopingt in the command wrong.04:10
Artemis3id rather edit a couple of lines in xorg.conf instead...04:10
Rich_li_nyI also wrote down the viseo settings that worked whenusing Puppy linux.04:10
Rich_li_nyoff a live CD.04:10
Rich_li_nyYeah.. this is what worked in Puppy (puppys auto config).  53.7214 Horizontal khz04:11
Rich_li_ny85.1369 Vertical Hz .. 24 Color04:11
Artemis3hmm04:11
Artemis3you dont have the ranges?04:11
Rich_li_nyNo.. thast all it said..04:11
Rich_li_nyI dont know how to see or get ranges.04:11
Artemis3monitor manual?04:11
Artemis3google search?04:12
Artemis3when you get those, just edit xorg.conf in /etc/X11 in the monitor section04:12
Rich_li_nyWhen I looked at display.. it told me what it was set for .  I know it would be easier if It had ranges.. but with those number I was hoping to make some up.04:12
=== Arkh [n=Arkh@62.152.122.140] has joined #xubuntu
Artemis3its better with ranges04:12
Rich_li_nyYou know.. Ive been googeling around almost every day for 2.5 weeks now.. and its teh only thing I didnt look up was the monitor.04:13
Artemis3search google for specs of that monitor04:13
Artemis3hahaha04:13
Rich_li_nyI tried THree different monitors  though and had teh same problem.04:13
Rich_li_nyOK04:13
Artemis3when you get the ranges, you simply add 2 lines like:         HorizSync       30-8504:13
Artemis3        VertRefresh     47-16004:13
Artemis3 in the Monitor section04:13
OrionistiRight, how do I mount the sda device again?04:13
Artemis3and thats it...04:13
Artemis3much faster than the alternative04:14

Orionistithis is 170 MB and huge (physically04:38
OrionistiOne more question04:38
Artemis3on the other hand i do have a working 80mb pata disk stored04:38
Orionistido I have to mount this again every time I reconnect it?04:39
Arkhyes04:39
Artemis33 1/2" and all..04:39
Arkhunless you do edit /etc/fstab04:39
OrionistiI've used a 25 MB ISA disk04:39
Artemis3what do you mean isa?04:39
OrionistiISA as in the ISA in motherboard, before PCI04:39
Artemis3the black one with the controller?04:39
Orionistimhm04:40
Orionistinow, how to edit the /etc/fstab04:40
Artemis3fstab will shorten your mount command, dont automount unless you plan to leave it always connected04:40
Orionistialright04:41
OrionistiI guess this is fine04:41
Artemis3it will save you from typing many mount options everytime04:41
Artemis3something like mount /media/sda will do if you configure fstab04:41
Artemis3now why would you use a 170mb disk for?04:42
Artemis3isnt a pendrive much easier?04:42
Orionistibecause it's the only thing the digital camera accepts =P04:42
Artemis3ah...04:42

Rich_li_nyBug on 6.10 causes problems with PCI /AGP cards and no video on monitor.  Per forums and IRC I was told I need to change to vesa or download 7.04 .  How do I download and install vesa drivers from a command prompt?   (cant d/l the 7.04 ISO I don't have enough bandwidth).  ???09:25
TheSheepRich_li_ny: they are already included09:26
TheSheepRich_li_ny: just do 'sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf' and change the "driver" line in it to say "vesa"09:27
raig1It is just my problem that in editing /etc/networks/interfaces, I do now know which interface is eth0/eth1/eth2. Background: I have to load a different driver for the wlan, so the wlan is also named ethx. There should be something in udev, I learned meanwhile, but how?09:28
maxamillionraig1: my wireless for my laptop is actually seen as eth1 also .... i never bothered with it because it was consistent09:30
Rich_li_ny.09:31
raig1seems to be a race condition which card is earlier. But I found the solution meanwhile under http://www.debianadmin.com/rename-network-interface-using-udev-in-linux.html, so that I could associate the name with a MAC address. Thanks.09:32

h3sp4wnmaxamillion: It seemed obvious from the start compiz had the programming talent to me11:46
maxamillionArkh: i dunno why, but i had it installed and working in edgy and all i did was updated my sources.list to feisty repos and upgraded and now when i test either and open an application it seems like the window manager isn't working correctly, but the effects work on the panel menus so its "kinda working" ... i've even releaded to the wm a few times trying to look for crashes or errors and i didn't really see any11:47
maxamillionh3sp4wn: and the funding11:48
Arkhmmm very weird11:48
maxamillionArkh: yeah ... oh well, i don't _really_ mind because i don't use it but i'm sure that is going to come up when feisty releases stable11:48
maxamillionh3sp4wn: one thing i will give beryl credit for is the control panel application, but i think compiz is faster and more stable11:49

h3sp4wnyep - the subpixel one doesn't actually seem to immediately affect anything11:56
h3sp4wnwhereas the others come into effect straight away11:56

h3sp4wnmaxamillion: quite a few of the libraries are released now (its not all just cvs anymore)11:57
maxamillionh3sp4wn: ah ... that i didn't know11:58
maxamillionh3sp4wn: i did think it was interesting how terrasoft put e17 as default in the ps3 release11:58
h3sp4wnmaxamillion: To me imlib2 is more impressive than compiz and co - hand optimised sse or mmx assembler for the things it does nothing is faster12:01
h3sp4wnmaxamillion: I think its good for it to get a little more exposure (won't help it be released any faster I don't think)12:01
maxamillionh3sp4wn: i thought it was just emulated 3d and that it couldn't cast shadows on anything back the desktop background12:02
maxamillionh3sp4wn: i will say this though: e16 is horrible .... e17 is a massive improvement12:02
maxamillionstable or not12:03
h3sp4wnmaxamillion: Its not imlib2 that does that its evas I think it does support true transparancy but only for applications written using the e libraries12:04
h3sp4wnI would rather use the old enlightenment than metacity or sawfish12:04
maxamillionh3sp4wn: as just a window manager? yes, old e is better than metacity or sawfish but i would have to mix it with xfce or gnome12:05
maxamillionbut with xfce i really can't find a complaint with xfwm412:05
h3sp4wnmaxamillion: It is also 8 years old12:06
h3sp4wnthe last stable version12:07
h3sp4wn(major release)12:07
maxamillionh3sp4wn: wow ... i knew it was old but i didn't realize it had been that long12:07
maxamillionh3sp4wn: lets move to #xubuntu-offtopic12:07
