CyberMadhow to protect panel on desktop from changing? one of our office staff, sometime remove the panel.. and it really waste our time to fix it08:13
ablomenyou could try making the panel files ro or something like that08:17
CyberMadablomen how is that? from /home/username/.config/xfce/panel ?08:21
ablomen~/.config/xfce4/panel/panels.xml << if you chmod that so they dont have write rights i guess they cant change the panels08:23
ablomendunno if xfce shows up errors then, you should just try i guess08:23

kwhki need to run ssh commands in Terminal from time to time in order to connect via internet to some different computers located at another location.  can i save the commands so that i can save typing the command every time?15:21

Asbanolhello @all, I can't get my soundcard to run. I'm using Xubuntu 7.04 on an ASUS M2N-VM DH (nVidia nForce 430). The chip should be HD audio with an AD1988 codec16:24
ubotuIf you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php?page=DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP316:41
kwhkTheSheep: just did some searches about .bash, doesn't seem to be something simple to me. but will certainly try. thanks.17:10
TheSheepkwhk: just add a line to .bash_profile in your home directory17:12
TheSheepkwhk: somethin like  'alias foo="some long and twisted command"'17:13
TheSheepkwhk: then you can call it by typing 'foo'17:13
