age6racerHi all I'm having trouble with my desktop. xfce can't seem to keep control of it and as soon as I change it back it just loses it again. I have no icons or right click menus it's really annoying.15:51
soldatsare you sure your saving sessions on logout. make sure you have the "allow xfce to manage the desktop" and the "save sessions on logout" checked then log out then in and check16:14
soldatshmm i hate it when people ask a question the leave within a few minutes of no answer16:14

Noob_JI'll be installing Gutsy on my old Compaq pentium II in an hour or so and I was wondering if Compiz Fuision is already loaded into Gutsy as I've read.17:29
DaveWhen I put by system into standby mode and come back out of it, by wireless connection does not work.  I am useing a static IP with wpa2 personal connection.  any advise?18:36
nikolamI had the same problem with my USD ADSL modem under linux. I fixed it with making 1. script for shutting down connection and its device device and 2. script for turning device and connection back on. Next, you can make it part of standby/resume script and also you can make them as commands so you can start them manually (+x in /usr/sbin)18:52

ubotuHi! Welcome to #xubuntu!23:29
WebGuest1I poped in looking for a quick answer to a probably stupid question23:30
Rayoif you know it's stupid, please don't ask23:30
soldatsno, the ubuntu community prides itself helping everyone23:31
WebGuest1I was trying out the Liver CD version of xubuntu 6.06.1 and I was just wondering if there were any temp files or anything that might be written to the HD23:31
WebGuest1naw it's probably just stupid bucause I just over looked the answer inmy own searching23:32
soldatsit runs from the livecd only23:33
Rayosomebody ban him23:33
WebGuest1cool didn't think it would but just wanted to check. Thanks23:33
soldatsnp :)23:34
WebGuest1What do most consider the best distro option for running from a CDRW or saving to another external source? Like Puppy.23:37
soldatsWebGuest1: anything you feel comfortable with23:40
Rayosomebody plz ban him =\23:40
WebGuest1why? theis is where your suposed to go for help...Right?23:41
Rayono, not that kind of help...23:41
soldatsWebGuest1: do you use xubuntu?23:42
WebGuest1Ok sorry to bother. I know they are noobish questions but shit I've only been looking into this pretty much most of the day. soldats: I have the 6.06.1 distro today got it burnt and had it up and running. Just have not resigned to do a full install yet.23:44
WebGuest1looked good and i had no problems launching. And about every program I would personally need is allready there. I was happy with it.23:45
soldatsawesome well i hope you stick with it.23:46
soldatsto be a little nicer about it. if you have a question directly related to xubuntu or ubuntu please ask here. if its a general question with linux id suggest asking in ##linux. no offense im glad your using xubuntu and i hope you continue on your learning curve23:47
soldatsWebGuest1: uhh thats to you^^23:47
Angelus_hey guys23:49
Angelus_anyone know where i can set the system beep?23:49
Angelus_i have a piece of software that calls the default system beep but there's no sound because its not set23:49
Angelus_and i can't find where its supposed to be set up in xubunty23:49
Angelus_in xfce there's xfSound i think23:50
soldatswhat app and system beep in what terminal?23:51
Angelus_its a java app i wrote23:51
Angelus_its supposed to beep with the system beep23:51
Angelus_because it calls the default sound bell23:51
Angelus_but for some reason i can't find where in xubuntu this sound is set. and i think its disabled by default23:52
Angelus_it works in KDE and gnome :(23:52
Angelus_so its not an API thing23:52
WebGuest1some of what I read today led me to believe that ubuntu or xubuntu could be set up to run from cd and save to flash drive. is that possible?23:52
soldatsWebGuest1: yes23:53
Angelus_WebGuest1: yes. there's eeexubuntu which can do it for you automatically as well23:53
soldatsAngelus_: gotcha. i think at one point i set my system bell to off but i cant remember where.23:53
Angelus_soldats: nod. Kinda frustrating23:54
soldatswish i could be more help. have you asked in #xfce yet23:55
WebGuest1All right thank you both for putting up with me.23:55
