bad_cablesanyone using a Linksys WPM54G wireless card?00:23
quitttluc_, well, it is not I'm looking for00:24
soldatsquittt, thats the only way to edit the system part of the menu other than that you need to make some .desktop files or edit already made .desktop files00:24
LetsGo67My time is constantly 6 hours late, can someone help me fix this pleas?00:31
soldatsrclick the time app and set to your correct time zone00:31
LetsGo67I am unable to do that, soldats.00:32
soldatswell manually set the clock to the right time and save sassions and restart and see if it help. other wise the normal solution is rclick >> properties >> and set the time zone there00:33
LetsGo67It's Xfce, not Gnome.00:33
bad_cablesyes yes yes01:01
bad_cablesndiswrapper is the best01:01
zoredachebad_cables: I disagree.  I find that buying a supported network adapter is the best01:02
zoredachebuying cheap unsupported adapters just encourages the stupid vendors to keep making them.01:02
bad_cablesthey dont get paid to make drivers for linux do they?01:03
bad_cablesand this adaptor wasn't cheap and it was on the Ubuntu list of supported out of the box wifi nics01:04
bad_cablesi actually did get 2 cheap wifi nics trying to get them to work as well01:04
zoredacheno, but at least in some cases the manufacturers publish the full specs for the card, and don't require that your dirver includes prorprietry firmware01:04
bad_cableswell my nic is the Linksys WMP54G 4.1 with the rt61 driver01:05
bad_cablesthe rt61pci is what xubuntu installed01:05
bad_cablesthat worked but dropped connection on huge downloads, like... apt-get updates and things01:06
bad_cablesthen i worked from the threads and tried a new rt61 driver01:06
bad_cablesthat worked but, when it scanned i saw a 0% on the radio for all the networks01:06
bad_cablesfinally i saw a newer thread that advised the nidiswrapper01:07
bad_cablesuntill there is a better driver, that is what i am stuck with01:07
bad_cablesi dont mind, as long as it is stable01:07

gmcastili'm still new to the way that Apt works and I'm trying to understand the difference between 'update' and 'upgrade'.  The description makes it look as if 'update' doesn't actually make any changes to local Apt database.  Is this correct?02:22

pb_ee1i'm looking for a way to create my own keyboard layout, is there a way to do so with ubuntu or xubuntu?16:19
TheSheeppb_ee1: sure, just copy and edit one of the layout files, they are text files16:20
pb_ee1ho, nice to know that, but... where are those files? :p16:20
TheSheeppb_ee1: /usr/share/X11/xkb/16:21
TheSheeppb_ee1: you probably want to read some documentation on xkb first16:21
pb_ee1Thanks a lot TheSheep, i'm looking into it right now ;)16:21
ubotuTo switch your keyboard layout on GNOME: System -> Preferences -> Keyboard (GNOME) - KDE: K -> System Settings -> Regional & Language -> Keyboard Layout (KDE) - Xfce: see https://help.ubuntu.com/6.10/xubuntu/desktopguide/C/switch-keyboard-layout.html - See also !Shortcuts16:22
pb_ee1thanks for this additional info ;)16:22
TheSheepthis link should get you started, I think16:23
pb_ee1i'll look at it ;p16:23

TheSheepmynyml: it's: options module_name model=ref16:48

BronxAngelhello xubuntu users. i need tips on making xubuntu even faster on older machines19:08
TheSheepBronxAngel: the first tip: use some lighter distribution, like archlinux or even gentoo with proper flags19:11
BronxAngelthe oldest machine i have is 333mhz+256ram19:12
BronxAngelthe installer for archlinux doe snot look too userfriendly for a noob like me19:15
TheSheepBronxAngel: well, if you're not an advanced user, then better stay with xubuntu19:16
TheSheepBronxAngel: you can disable the printing daemon (cups) if you don't use it, and a number of other unused services (like bluetooth)19:17
BronxAngelcool, thanks TheSheep, plus i already installed xubuntu and it is a blessing to this old pc. win98 never ran like this b419:17
BronxAngeli heard that reducing the workspace desk to 1 reduces memory. is this true?19:18
TheSheepBronxAngel: you can also remove some of the autostarted applications, like update notification, crash reporting, etc.19:18
BronxAngelawesome. where is there a nice tutorial with all these goodies?19:19
TheSheepBronxAngel: I don't know any, but I'm sure there are some on the forums19:34
