GhostvirusBausch: other than making the system font smaller, i don't think so06:20
BauschGhostvirus: I have tried making fonts smaller but the icon sizes stayed the same, http://i2.tinypic.com/4r7s9q9.png06:21
Ben_CsBausch: you can always rize the resolution06:22
BauschBen_Cs: What do you mean? Change the value of my DPI setting?06:23
Ben_CsBausch: yes06:23
Ben_Cslike lets say 1280x1024 or higher06:24
BauschBen_Cs: It's set to 96 at the moment and I have a 1280x1024  17" display06:24
Ben_Cshmmm. why do you want the icons in thunar to be microscopic then?06:25
BauschI just want to be able to see more files in Thunar when viewing in list view06:26
BauschSetting my font size to 6 was just an exageration of what's going on, heh06:26
Ghostvirussounds like you need a way to hide the icons06:27
BauschBut yeah, ideally I want the sizes of icons to be the same height as text at 9pt font06:27
BauschGhostvirus: Is that easy to toggle?06:28
GhostvirusBausch: No. It's not in Thunar's options. I imagine you'd have to patch it or something.06:29
BauschAh well maybe I'll just try to live with it for now.06:30
GhostvirusBausch: is there a particular reason you want to view so many files all at once?06:32
BauschYeah, mostly to browse my mp3 directories because there is no real "good" media player with a media library function06:32
Ghostviruswhat apps have you tried?06:33
BauschI have tried Amarok but it didn't feel "right" in gtk/xfce. So I also installed Meta Tracker hoping it can index all my files so I can search for mp3s easily06:33
BauschBut I can't figure out how to use wildcards, and there's no documentation about wildcards anywhere on the web06:33
Ghostvirusif you haven't already, you should try quod libet06:34
Ghostvirusi used to use it and it was really nice06:34
BauschDoes it allow itself to be controlled from the command line?06:35
BauschI'm used to winamp's global hotkeys and to do the same thing in audacious i can bind a key to "audtool seekrelative +20" etc06:35
Ghostvirushm, i don't know. i never tried.06:36
Bauschhm, well perhaps you can help me with one other question I have06:37
Ghostvirusi use audacious now, mostly because i don't have enough music to warrant using a library-based player06:38
BauschWhen browsing in detailed list view, is it possible to use the keyboard to change what order to sort things by?06:38
BauschI can edit the menu accelerator in icon view to bind key combos, but those keycombos only work in icon view, not detailed list06:38
BauschIf I can make thunar save the view setting for each directory, that would work as well06:39
Ghostvirusi'm not sure thunar can save different view settings for different directories06:40
BauschI think i read the same thing somewhere on the xfce mailing list, that's why I was hoping the other thign I was trying to do was possible06:41
Ghostvirusyeah, thunar's pretty minimal, but then again it's meant to be06:42
BauschYeah but things like integrated search would be really useful06:42
BauschI hate having to start up nautilus --no-desktop every time I want to do something a little more complicated06:43
Ghostviruswell, the whole philosophy behind it is "it's a file manager, and only a file manager"06:43
=== hyper__ch [n=hyper@] has joined #xubuntu
Ghostvirusif you want a gui for searching, catfish is pretty handy06:44

Bausch(and strangely beagle does allow wildcards now, but catfish refuses and it says that wildcards are not supported for that backend)06:45

BauschLike if you right click on a task and press X it will maximize06:47
BauschBut "send to.." does not have this06:47
Ghostvirushm, you like keyboard shortcuts, you're asking the wrong guy! i pretty much use point and click for everything except for text editors and some graphics apps06:48
Ghostvirusso i'm not really knowledgeable about shortcuts06:49
Bauschhaha yeah I like having one hand on the keyboard and one hand on the mouse, but I can live without being able to do ^^^^^06:49
BauschOther than the things I just mentioned I think xfce is perfect06:50

aztec13baush i use xfce religiously and never had any problems mounting it's UN mounting ive had trouble06:53
BauschI use rockbox btw06:54
BauschI thikn what's going on is the ipod's firmware gets mounted as a separate device06:54
BauschBecause whatn it finally gets mounted I see two devices and there's some reports of the same bug happening06:54
aztec13i cant get it to properly unmount that the player's screen returns to useable view06:54
aztec13like it did under Xp06:55
Bauschaztec13: does the ipod show up as two devices when you mount it? are you using apple's firmware?06:55

aztec13 and i cand find how to reformat under ubuntu?06:58
GhostvirusBausch: yeah, upgrade your firmware!06:58
aztec13i do have a couple of commands to get me started from someone06:59
aztec13but thats it06:59
aztec13i went and checked them out in manpages and it said one of them wasnt for mountable discs so i dont know why i was given it07:00
aztec13it made me think twice about the advice all together07:00
Ghostvirusaztec13: you mean reformat your ipod?07:00
aztec13chipod yes reformat my chipod?07:00
Bauschis it fat32?07:00
BauschDon't most chipods just behave like an ordinary usb drive?07:01
aztec13that would be widows07:01
Ghostvirusmost usb devices are formatted for fat3207:01
aztec13 and actually i took it down the mountain to the internet cafe and did it with xp and it said it worked but just as qik a box popped upen saying it was done07:02
BauschI think that's normal for doing "quick format"07:02
aztec13i have done it before so i know what it looks like when it really is done and this wasnt it07:02
BauschMaybe you should try the thorough (?) mode07:02
aztec13so i really want to try under linux somehow since xp didnt do anything07:03
=== CoRnJuLiOx [n=jrtuvera@cable-202-8-239-207.d-one.net] has joined #xubuntu
aztec13i think possibly it coulld be due to the fact i forget to unplug my player when i turn my system off and start it up.i know thats not good for it07:04
aztec13whats the thorough mode?07:04
Bauschtry "fdisk -l" as root07:05
Bauschit will tell you the file systems of your drives07:05
Bauschaztec13: iirc windows let you format things in two ways the fast one just creates a new file system and the other one does something more, i'm not too experienced with this07:05
Ghostvirusi found this link. seems a little in-depth: http://www.3till7.net/2007/04/19/how-to-reformat-your-pen-drive/07:06
BauschBut I suggest checking what file system your chipod uses, if it's fat32 then format it as if it's an ordinary fat32 drive07:06
BauschI hope he didn't crash lol07:07

KilrooI wasn't under the impression that it was doing this indexing business...I gave it a directory and a string to match and said "go." But I suppose it might have been.04:47
KilrooFar as I can tell, it disappeared when I did a sudo aptitude -f install due to having misunderstood part of a guide for accomplishing something or other.04:48
KilrooI had kind of hoped that at least finding out what it IS would be fairly simple if anyone had a fresh enough install of Xubuntu that the utility was still there.05:00
TheSheepKilroo: metatracker?05:03

=== siofwolves [n=s@unaffiliated/siofwolves] has left #xubuntu ["<SP1>]
KilrooI suppose my best guess so far is that it was Catfish, I think. The screenshots seem the closest. I just really hadn't thought it was using an indexing thing (don't know WHY I assumed that, really) and I haven't come across any way to make Catfish do a full-text search without some sort of indexing thing. If Catfish would use fgr that'd be just about perfect for my purposes.05:07

wlfwhiterabbithi! how can i see how much ram is being used?05:10
TheSheepwlfwhiterabbit: linux always uses all the ram available05:12
wlfwhiterabbitif i write "free" in a shell and then press "enter" i have the answer i'm searching for05:13
KilrooThere's the system load monitor for the xfce toolbars...05:13
TheSheepKilroo: I think that catfish can use metatracker under the hood, which in yurn uses index05:13
Ben_CsTheSheep: eventually yes05:13
TheSheepBen_Cs: no, it always uses all the ram05:13
KilrooBut for some reason it can only show these little graphical representations. I kinda miss xLabel and xStatsClass.05:14
Ben_CsTheSheep: it doesn't cache all the MEM at once. When you use apps, then it casches. no?05:14
TheSheepBen_Cs: "cache"?05:14
TheSheepBen_Cs: linux doesn't cache the memory, it caches *into* the memory05:15
Ben_CsTheSheep: that's what i ment05:15
TheSheepBen_Cs: it uses all the memory for buffers and cache05:15
TheSheepBen_Cs: always05:16
TheSheepBen_Cs: when you run a new application that needs additional memory, the buffers and cache are made smaller05:16
Ben_CsTheSheep: but sometimes i look at the memory usage and i see that some of it used by apps, some by cache and some buffered, but some is free aswell05:17
TheSheepBen_Cs: the free part is very small05:18
TheSheepBen_Cs: it's left there to have some margin, so that the system doesn't have to change the cache size all the time05:19
Ben_CsTheSheep: that's what i said: at the beginning it's very big. "eventually" it's small :)05:19

nikolamDo anyone of you actually use some form of /home directory encryption ?11:09
Jester45i dont but it would be easy11:15
zoredachenikolam: I do11:17
nikolamWhat method do you use?11:17
zoredachecrtypsetup with luks, and pammount11:18
zoredachebasically I have a 8gb file which gets mounted through a loopback filesystem whenever I login11:19
nikolamAs I see there is no way on linux to make encryption work throught file system, like ntfs on win11:22
nikolamIf we dont have Raiser4 unstable on mind11:22
zoredacheso you want total encryption?11:22
nikolamWhole partition or file and then mount11:22
nikolamI would like ntfs behavior. only for some files11:23
zoredacheyou can get total encryption, it is a pain though11:23
nikolamzoredache: Do you have ability to make that file which is encrypted dinamically sized?11:23
zoredachethe ntfs way isn't partiuclarly secure... There are many ways that it leaves unecrypted fragments of files around where it can be seen11:23
zoredacheno, but resizing it wouldn't be that painful...11:24
nikolamCould resizing be done?11:24
zoredacheI don't know about dynamically...11:25
zoredacheit would take a little work11:25
zoredacheI suspect it probably can be done, I just don't know how11:25
nikolamI suppose that it could be: make new file with encryption, copy data, delete old one.11:26
zoredacheyeah, that is what I was thinking...11:26
nikolamDoes anyone use LVM, I setup software raid without lvm11:26
zoredacheit should be possible to just make the file bigger, then do a ext3 resize11:26
zoredachebut if you do the commands wrong you loose everything11:27
zoredacheI use lvm on a couple servers11:27
nikolam"ext3 resize"? hmmm11:27
zoredacheit is really nice to be able to make filesystem snapshots11:27
nikolamHmm snapshots nice11:27
zoredachenikolam: resize2fs11:28
nikolambut lvm+raid+encryption11:28
nikolamBut could win run on same disks where is lvm?11:28
zoredachesure, but windows, couldn't be on the lvm partition11:29
nikolamI thought to run win in kvm akyway but just a thougth11:29
zoredacheso you need your windows partition, your boot partition, and then lvm11:29
zoredacheoh, and if you do use lvm, that will let you resize things pretty easy11:30
nikolamI currently have raid without lvm11:30
nikolamsomeone was saying that if lvm broke i could lose all11:32
nikolamso i stayed away11:32
zoredacheyes, it is possible that if lvm broke you could loose everything11:33
zoredachebut then if software raid broke you could loose everything, if ext3 broke you could loose everything11:33
=== uptownben [n=uptownbe@line102-144.adsl.actcom.co.il] has joined #xubuntu
zoredachethe answer to it all iis to simply make backups of important data because things can break11:34
zoredacheIf you don't have a good backup system in place, then playing around with partiitioning and encryption isn't wise11:34
nikolamOk, let me say I thought to use UDF formated DVD+RW disks for backups, like on Win with nero Incd11:38
nikolamBut I think that Linux now supports only 2.0 version of UDF and many my disks are formated on 2.6 or 2.511:39
zoredacheI don't know much about that...  I make my backups to hard drives these days.11:40
zoredacheUsb drives are so much easier to deal with11:40
nikolamYes. One nice external hd on usb 2.011:40

RamlaI think the easiest way is to use dd to read a partition into a partition image. The problem is it saves a lot of empty space and you need a partition of the exact same size to restore it.12:10
RamlaWell, a bigger one might work. I'm not sure.12:10
