pizzaboyhi. i'm on ubuntu. i wanted to make some changes to the menu. but i can't see where. can anybody help me?03:48
pizzaboyi want to change the actual menu items, like rename 'Network' to possibly 'Internet'03:49
pizzaboyi already looked in /usr/share/applications but that doesn't let you change category names03:49
j1mcpizzaboy: are you on Xubuntu or Ubuntu03:49
j1mcpizzaboy: there's a menu editor, but . . . it's not perfect.03:49
pizzaboyoh, no.03:50
j1mcSettings > menu editor.03:50
pizzaboythat doesn't let you do it.03:50
pizzaboyit just has 'include' where all your applications are03:50
j1mcyeah, it does, but . . . you have to use it to open up a separate file that contains the menu information.03:50
j1mcand then, the changes you make don't really stick like they should.  :(03:51
pizzaboyhow do i do that?03:51
pizzaboywell there must be a way03:51
pizzaboyto rename categories, add new ones03:51
pizzaboymove stuff between them03:51
j1mcpizzaboy: i'm pretty sure that the only way to make the changes stick is to change the information in the .desktop files.03:51
j1mcbelieve me, i've tried.03:51
j1mci tried changing up the menus, but every time i did, they would get reset after i did some updates.03:52
Danger_what is the file thast is editd by the autosart applications03:52
j1mcDanger_: good question . . . i'm not sure.03:53
pizzaboyoooh, yeah03:53
pizzaboythat makes sense. updates would put it right back03:53
pizzaboyok, that answers my question03:53
Danger_i have two instances of the camera controll03:53
pizzaboyepic lulz03:53
j1mcthe changes need to be made in the .desktop files for xubuntu, at least in it's current setup.03:53
pizzaboyi enjoy epic lulz on a daily basis03:54
Danger_and yes the eee-pc keys are tiny03:54
pizzaboyis there no synaptic in xubuntu?03:55
pizzaboyor anything similar?03:55
Danger_ys  there is synaptic03:55
pizzaboynot under settings03:55
AzMooHey, I've got an ltsp setup in my office here that's working great, but when I take the client off-site to another one of our branches it wont finish booting. It gets the IP and the boot image, shows the Ubuntu loading splash, and then drops to a blank screen (completely blank, like the monitor's turned off). If I ctrl+alt+f1 then I can see a linux console so it's obviously booted and stopped. Does anybody know where I should be looking?04:48
ubuntuhey. how do i select the packages that i would like to install when installing xubuntu for the first time?05:07
ubuntui didn't get a prompt for that when using the live cd...05:07
ubuntuwow, i got the nick ubuntu. i guess the live cd defaults to that...05:09
AzMooubuntu: it sure does. I'm pretty sure you can't select packages at install. After installation is when you configure that stuff.05:11
ubuntuso, i HAVE to install the packages it comes with, and then remove them later on.05:11
ubuntuthat seems silly05:11
ubuntuand not as clean05:11
ubuntuwhen i remove all those programs05:11
ubuntualright, thanks anyways.05:12
ubuntubye bye05:12

kwhkit's simply too quiet .....14:01
maxamillionkwhk: it often is14:01
maxamillionkwhk: on one hand we can interpret that as good news, on the other ... as bad ... all depends on how you look at it :)14:01
kwhkmaxamillion: oh yes, you're right.14:02
kwhkmaxamillion:  other rooms, like ubuntu, gnumeric, are not as quiet as this one.14:03
kwhkmaxamillion: do u use pidgin?14:04
maxamillionkwhk: very true, and part of me says its because they have a much larger user base which i'm sure plays a big part in that fact but at the same time i like to think we have less issues here14:04
maxamillionkwhk: yes, but not for irc14:04
kwhkmaxamillion: do u need to type "kwhk" yourself when u talk to me?14:06
maxamillionkwhk: nope, just type k and then hit the tab key14:08
kwhkmaxamillion: oh yes, thanks.14:09
maxamillionkwhk: i use irssi because i'm somewhat of a command line junkie14:09
kwhkmaxamillion: i was so stupid.14:09
maxamillionkwhk: naw, no worries14:10
deepsthat's not very smart14:19
deepsi just used the software update manager to apply some updates14:19
deepswhich included a new kernel14:19
deepsand there's nothing warning me that i need to reboot for the changes to take effect14:19
deepsinstead leaving me to believe that my system is safe14:19
kwhkdeeps: if i remember correctly, there was an icon appearing at the right-top corner telling me that i need to reboot the system to effect the changes.14:21
kwhkdeeps: that was an icon with two blue arrows.14:23
maxamilliondeeps: do you know for how many years that feature never existed ... that is something that package managers only started doing in the last 8-12 months14:23
deepswindows does it *-)14:23
maxamillionwindows also makes you reboot after installing a driver for _anything_14:24
maxamillionbut we are by no means going to begin a windows vs. gnu/linux flamefest in this channel14:25
kwhkmaxamillion: u still there?14:34
maxamillionkwhk: yeah14:35
maxamillionkwhk: i'm at work so i kinda come and go ... but i'm here at the moment14:35
maxamillionkwhk: what's up?14:35
kwhkmaxamillion: i have one question about thunar. it doesn't show exactly the date and time of the file modified. instead, it tells only like today, yesterday, wednesday, ... .  right?14:37
maxamillionkwhk: i think there is a setting to change that14:44

yishanyone there?20:18
maxamillionyish: hi20:19
yishoh hi maximilion20:19
yishyou're the only one on here?20:20
maxamillionyish: its possible that i'm the only one not idle20:20
yishoh ok.20:20
yishI'm relatively new to IRC.20:20
yishso if they are idle they can't see the conversation?20:20
maxamillionyish: they can still see the conversation, they just probably aren't active on their computers right now or not paying attention to the channel20:21
yishare you one of the developers of xubuntu? or do developers monitor this list?20:22
yishAlso what are the best times of day with the most activity on this channel?20:22
maxamillionyish: i used to be a contributor developer, but not an "official" one ... i don't have the time for it anymore, but some of the developers do monitor here from time to time20:24
maxamillionyish: why do you ask?20:24
Sadiehi.. on my applications menu the "Quit" button used to give me a list of options on what i wanted to do.. it now just logs me off.. any idea why it does this?20:28
duck_what filesystem should a bootable xubuntu usb drive use?20:32
manchickenSo, are folks playing around on Hardy yet?20:42
yishi'm back20:59
yishis there an irc channel where I can talk to the developers of xubuntu?21:00
yishI am blind21:00
yishand I want to use xubuntu21:00
yishbut the Orca screen reader doesn't work with it as of now21:00
yishorca uses at-spi for accessibility21:00
yishalso are there any audio games for xubuntu?21:01
manchickenI don't think so...21:01
manchickenI think there may be some of the old-time text-based games in the repository that would work in the terminal with Orca.21:02
manchickenBut that's the closest thing I can think of with that.21:02
yishaudio games have no pictures, graphics or animation in them. blind people play them using sounds only. sounds in the stereo field for example, I have to center an enemy in order to kil it. every keypress in the game usually talks where applicable and uses stereo and volume changes to play games. but there are no audio games for ubuntu or xubuntu21:02
manchickenI don't think so, have you tried happypenguin.org?21:03
yishI would like to talk to the developers of xubuntu about orca, audio games and things because I bet xubuntu would run really fast on my system with 512mb ram 2.0 ghz processor and 80gig hard drive21:27
t105hm... just found a bug in a xfce-addin... dunno how it is called in english, maybe quicklaunch? it apparently is french origin.. well i inserted an item, but didn't enter the right command... then saved and *poof* all my menubars disappeared21:29
