xtrailzhi, anyone got a link to a page showing how to get compiz-fusion running on Xubuntu ?  i've googled but much of the info seems out-of-date17:53
TheSheepxtrailz: just use the fusion-icon to switch the managers17:55
siggjenthere is atleast 2 relevant hits when googling compiz xubuntu17:55
siggjenamong top 517:55
siggjeni prefer this one: http://xubuntublog.wordpress.com/2007/12/09/xubuntu-compiz-pretty-pretty-xubuntu/17:56
xtrailzi tried it on my desktop (nvidia) but there seemed to be a conflict between Xfce and Compiz when switching.   Had to disable Xfce compositing completely to get it working at all.    was using compiz --replace at the time.17:57
siggjeni've had no problems with compiz on nvidia17:58
xtrailzthx. i'll follow the blog post and see how it goes this time17:59
TheSheepxtrailz: if you use nvidia, you need to add a line to your xorg.conf18:00
TheSheepxtrailz: ask about it at the compiz channel18:00

matteo_could someone help me?18:43
zoredachematteo_: I don't believe that it is possible...  What would you expect if it did show up as an icon?18:44
zoredacheyou can't mount an audio cd18:44
matteo_I can't explore it like data cd?18:45

zoredacheTheSheep: ah. neat...19:02
zoredachematteo_: so you could make a launcher with a command like this "xmms /dev/cdrom"19:02
TheSheepI think the command is different19:03
TheSheepnot sure, don't have xmms installed19:03
zoredacheTheSheep: I am pretty sure it is right... I had just tested it19:07
TheSheepzoredache: great, I faintly remember there was some special option for loadig cds19:08

beakergeek724I installed Xubuntu 7.10 for a friend.  In his login, running at 800x600, the font for the Applications and File menus keeps changing to something like 9pt.  In my login, running at 1024x768, I've had no trouble at all.  The only way I was able to get things back was to delete the existing config files.  Ideas?19:19
TheSheepbeakergeek724: badly detected dpi19:24
TheSheepbeakergeek724: http://scanline.ca/dpi/19:24
beakergeek724But if it's the DPI being detected incorrectly, wouldn't it affect the size of the other fonts too?  Or am I missing something?19:26
TheSheepbeakergeek724: wait, you mean it's on the same computer?19:27
TheSheepbeakergeek724: technically you can configure dpi per login19:27
TheSheepbeakergeek724: in .config/xfce4/xft.conf or some such19:27
fiXXXerMetCan much can I tweak xubuntu?  I want to remove as many unnecessary services as possible and as much unneeded programs as possible.  I want to make it very fast.19:27
TheSheepfiXXXerMet: you can tweak to your heart's content, until you break it19:28
beakergeek724TheSheep: I think I tried that, but I can look again.  But again, if it were a DPI issue, wouldn't it affect all of the fonts?  This problem is only with the fonts in menus.19:29
TheSheepfiXXXerMet: note however that you can't probably make it much faster without losing some functionality -- otherwise the developers would already have done it19:29
fiXXXerMetOnly using 85mb of ram...  sounds pretty good already19:31
ere4sifiXXXerMet, you can start off with the minimal cd and install fluxbox and only the apps you want and have it smaller and faster19:33
fiXXXerMetere4si: I will try that - thanks.19:34
fiXXXerMetere4si: I only see alternate and desktop?19:36
ere4siI'll get the link fiXXXerMet19:37
fiXXXerMetAre you talking about debian?19:37

whabohello i have the linksys WUSB54G wireless adapter on this computer .... how do i set it up to work wireless???? ANy help would be appreciated .. thank you.20:39
Tony89I am having a problem. I installed a second hard disk (I used killdisk to completely reformat and delete everything on the new disk). When I boot up the computer, Xubuntu won't go past "Mounting boot drive." The error light on the front of my tower lights up and stays lit. Not sure if this is a hardware or software problem, but does anyone have an idea of why it is doing this?20:40
Tony89Other important information: When I hooked up the second hard drive it is on the same IDE cable as the CD drive, and in the BIOS it says that the second hard drive is the 2nd master drive. (Before it said that the CD-ROM drive was the second master drive)20:41
totalwormagewhabo: would this help? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=51664920:41
Tony89And when I disconnect the hard disk, everything works fine.20:41
totalwormageyou could autodetect your harddisks in the bios20:42
Tony89That is the way I have it set up, but it still doesn't work.20:42
totalwormageand also you can edit your /etc/fstab, to not try and mount partitions on that disk that aren't there anymory20:42
Tony89I never had the hard disk there before, but would it still try and mount the new one?20:43
totalwormageah oh sorry i didn't read that part about it being new hehe20:44
Tony89That is why I thought it was odd that it stops working as soon as it attempts to mount the boot drives.20:44
totalwormageTony89: did you ehm put the second hdd on 'slave' with the jumpers on the back of your harddisk?20:45
totalwormageand your cdrom player on master?20:45
totalwormageor the other way around, but not with two masters?20:46
Tony89I am a little confused by that... do certain spots on the same IDE cable make one drive master and one slave?20:46
zoredacheTony89: no, there are jumpers... little black plastic things that connect different pins20:47
totalwormageTony89: yes, on the back of your harddisk and on your cdrom-player there are a few pinns20:47
totalwormage(i mean no indeed :P)20:47
zoredacheTony89: something like http://www.mysuperpc.com/hdu/jumpers_master_closeup_cr.jpg20:47
=== culb is now known as cbsd
totalwormageyou should set one on 'master' and the other one on 'slave'20:47
=== cbsd is now known as ctop
Tony89Let me check that.20:48
Tony89COuld it be that they are both set for master that would be causing the problems?20:48
zoredacheTony89: yes, if they are both master, or if they are both slaves you will have problems20:49
zoredacheon a single ide channel there should only be a master, and a slave20:49
zoredachewifi | whabo20:51
zoredachewhabo: it looks like that you'll probably have to go with ndiswrapper for that device20:51
Tony89Thanks everyone for the help. It is up and working now.20:59
