iCEiferhello, how can I get the xfce-dusk theme to work with Ubuntu? can I download it?02:17
zoredachedisconnect the hard drive that is actually in your desktop computer so the laptop drive will be the only drive02:17
newUserhmm thnk :)02:18
zoredachemake sure you install, or at least download everything you will need02:18
zoredacheinstalling software without a network connection really won't work well.  Make sure your laptop will be supported02:18

|Quest|anyone happen to know how to passively decrypt ssl packets from a mitm?04:03
zoredacheit isn't possible unless you can insert a ca certificate on the clients04:05
zoredacheor the clients are dumb enough to ignore the browser warnings telling them the certificates are crap04:06
|Quest|zoredache talking to me?04:06
* zoredache nods04:07
zoredachewhat are you trying to do, or do I want to know...04:08
|Quest| i don't understand how it's not possible,it's confusing.how does the browser decrypt it?04:10
zoredachehere is a video with a metaphor04:11
|Quest|zoredache - why can't i inject something in the client side04:16
zoredachewhat do you mean why can't you inject something client side?04:16
zoredacheI told you.  If you could get the client to install a forged CA certificate then you could intercept things.  But that isn't something that is very easy to do04:19
alex_i installed xubuntu-desktop, and it made my titlebars disappear in gnome, can anyone tell me why?08:34

gerrobleh laptop troubles but I'm back14:32
gerrothink the thing is overheating or something14:33
gerroanyway I read this article about conky and other system monitors I ws wondering what this statement meant " Conky is very flexible and very configurable but because it's defaultly in the root window makes it unsympathic."14:33
stmartinHi! I wanna ask you how to safely plug-out flash memory on xubuntu?14:34
gerrostmartin: when you see the icon on your desktop right click it and choose unmount14:37
stmartinok, thanks14:37
gerrootherwise it might still be writing stuff14:37
stmartinand how to see my files on my win xp drives (c: and d:), I have dual boot14:37
gerroit should be displayed already.. isn't it?14:38
gerroif its not you'd have to add its configuration into /etc/fstab14:38
gerroit might already be there but commented out so you don't accidentally trash your windows drive not knowing what it is14:39
stmartinI receive this error14:39
stmartinerror: device /dev/sda5 is not removable14:39
stmartinerror: could not execute pmount14:39
gerrosda5 is which device now?14:40
gerrodf -H to see a listing of them14:40
stmartinI used diskmounter script14:43
stmartinand it worked14:43
stmartinthanks for the help, anyway14:44
gerroalright is it permanently added into /etc/fstab though?14:45
gerrootherwise you'll have to redo it at every boot14:45
stmartinIt said that they are permanently added14:46
stmartinbut they are read-only14:46
stmartinhow can I paste something in them?14:46
gerroyeah to change that you have to edit it yourself14:46
gerrontfs support has come a long way since then14:46
gerrohmm might not be a good idea giving user access to that drive though14:48
gerrocan't you still write to it as root?14:48
gerrogabkdlly: yo14:49
sigma_123why does xubuntu not have a battery manager for laptops?15:03
sigma_123in the taskbar like how kde and gnome do15:04
gerroit does15:05
gerroright click and choose add new item15:05
gerroscroll down the list to battery15:05
sigma_123ah i see. il try that after its finished installing15:06
sigma_123i also noticed that the shutdown shortcut on the main menu does not work. why is this?15:07
gerrotry applications > settings > sessions and startup all things pertaining to that should be there15:08
sigma_123im refering to gutsy gibbon15:08
gerroyeah of course15:09
sigma_123ok but when you click the menu shortcut it goes nowhere. but the button in the taskbar gives the shutdown options15:10

darkk^what web-browser, IM client and office tools are used in xubuntu ?20:17
darkk^or redirect me to right place please, I tried to find software list at xubuntu website, but found nothing.20:18
viddfirefox, pidgin, abi-word, gnumeric spreadsheet20:20
darkk^Is it possible to change abi-word/gnumeric to OOo without headache about integration? Is it as simple as "aptitude install ..." ?20:23
viddapt-get install [opplication] then (if you want) apt-get remove [other apps]20:27
darkk^Ok, happy to hear that, going to try xubuntu on low-mem (256mb) machine. I know, that OOo will be slow there, but abi-word had lots of issues while reading M$ .doc's.20:30
darkk^Thank you for this metapackage.20:30

Ryukiokay. I have question on STV0689 driver.22:56
Ryukiit's a webcam driver, but I tried to figure out how to get it working.22:56
Ryukiwow really quiet.23:35
castroxguys.. just installed xubuntu on an old laptop.. everything works fine for me except the graphics.. it has a neomagic video card. Seems the installation picked up on this and seemingly installed the driver.. but I cannot "modprobe neomagic" since that module doesn't exist. Any ideas? Shouldn't it exist? xorg.conf has it as a loadable module.23:40
castroxof course lsmod doesn't yield any neomagic driver.23:41
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about neomagic - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi23:41
castroxI'm afraid I've searched the almighty google for quite a while. :-(23:42
Ryukilol me too23:42
castroxhaving problems with neomagic?23:43
RyukiI jsut have problems with my webcam23:43
Ryukieveryone is quiet lol23:43
soldatscastrox, did yousee this i didnt read it but it yet though http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/x11/xserver-xorg-driver-neomagic23:44
Ryuki http://pastebin.com/m4df555a2 It is my decive name, and I did read the webcam site23:44
castroxfunny thing I installed xubuntu on an old Dell the other day.. like a week ago.. has Neomagic aswell.. worked fine - loaded the neomagic module and everything.. this IBM laptop didn't get it :-\23:44
castroxsoldats, checking23:44
castroxsoldats, yeah it's installed in fact. Weird huh.. it only installs a *.so file - and not a *.ko. Don't know what I'm supposed to do with that. Any idea?23:45
soldats .so is the for nameserver for somolia i thought23:48
castroxsearching the system for neomagic only turns up some uninteresting man pages and the exact files listed in the repos.. which includes a *.so file.23:48
soldatshmm wierd23:48
soldatsmaybe try looking for all the packages on the other laptop and see what the other doesnt have and install the missing ones23:49
castroxsoldats, don't have it at home right now.. :{23:50
castroxchecking if anyone had this problem on #ubuntu, thanks for helping soldats23:51
methods[laptop]i installed xubuntu-desktop and ubuntu-desktop together but when my system loads i see the xfce boot image i would like ubuntu to my dominant desktop... how do i change this ?23:52
soldatsnp sorry i havent ever dealt with neomagic so im not too sure23:52
castroxmethods[laptop], you mean at the boot? system startup? or the login manager or what?23:54
ubotuInstructions for using webcams with Ubuntu can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Webcam - Supported cams: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsMultimediaWebCameras23:54
methods[laptop]at boot23:55
methods[laptop]i see xubuntu23:55
castroxmethods[laptop], because you've installed xubuntu, correct? And you have another installation with ubuntu or?23:55
methods[laptop]xubuntu was my cd install... and i used apt-get to install ubuntu-desktop23:56
soldatsxubuntu is ubuntu with xfce so naturally xfce will be the dominant boot image23:56
soldatsubuntu desktop basically installes gnome and nautilus i believe but youll have to make the default boot to gnome for a different image i believe but im not sure how to do it i havent used ubuntu gnome in a long time23:58
