sammyFWorkingOnWise: right on ejer, except for the "old" .. there is a new OSS version out that supports the newer creative labs soundcards, which are NOT supported by ALSA00:04
SlartAutoMatriX: your password.. your user password.. not a root password.. try it00:04
Jangariyeah, ejer, that's true, i forgot i had that set up00:04

tdawgedoggsorry im a n00b whats kde?01:18
prince_jammystdawgedogg: another desktop manager, like gnome01:18
prince_jammys!kde | tdawgedogg01:18
ubotutdawgedogg: KDE (http://kde.org) is the !desktop environment used natively in !Kubuntu. To install from Ubuntu: « sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop », or see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingKDE . Latest KDE version is 3.5.8 for Gutsy and Feisty, 3.5.6 for Edgy, and 3.5.5 for Dapper. See http://kubuntu.org for more information.01:18
tdawgedoggso if im using gutsy im using kde which sucks?01:19
jeffMASTERflexi think different DE's are a tough thing to grasp at first for the noobs. they usually can't believe that you can switch and use an entirely different interface01:19
prince_jammystdawgedogg: no. you are probably using gnome. and whether kde sucks or not is a matter of opinion01:19
rhineheart_mhow to remove user in ubuntu gutsy?01:19
jeffMASTERflextdawgedogg: gutsy comes in gnome and ide flavors. ubuntu and kubuntu, respectively01:19
reikalusikkaIf I chande to KDE, will some programs stop to function?01:19
tdawgedoggjeffmasterflex: I understand the concept but this is my first dayt with linux lol01:19
prince_jammysreikalusikka: no01:20
Grim76tdawgedogg, KDE, Gnome, XFCE Windows manangers are a preference....find which one works for you.01:20
prince_jammystdawgedogg: reikalusikka: you dont even have to change. you can have both01:20
sdsheeksI really have to commend the ubuntu folks.01:20
reikalusikkaso I heard KDE is more powerfull and just simply better than gnome, are there any things I should be aware of before changing?01:20
reikalusikkaprince_jammys: oh ok01:20
reikalusikkahow can I choose between them?01:20
sdsheeksI've been using Linux in some for since 96 and I can say it has come a very long way.01:20
tdawgedogghow do i switch between different desktop environments01:20
prince_jammysreikalusikka: you choose your session when you log in01:21
sdsheeksI have now fully replaced my OS with Ubuntu and couldn't be happier.01:21
ahorriblemessreikalusikka: I just did that, it said "bash: conversation.cpp: command not found"01:21
pfnholy nick-list batman!01:21
=== AskHL_ is now known as AskHL
ahorriblemessreikalusikka: conversation.cpp is the program01:21
reikalusikkaahorriblemess: I think you have to download some library01:21
pfnCheck here if you need the alternate desktop CD. This CD does not include the Live CD, instead it uses a text-based installer.01:21
pfn^^ wtf does this mean?  it's ambiguous01:21
tdawgedoggwhen i log in....so if i click the logg off i will have options for different environements or do i have to download htem01:21
ahorriblemessreikalusikka: man... ok haha.01:21
pfndoes the desktop cd that I need to check for not include the live cd?01:21
reikalusikkaahorriblemess: let me check :D01:22
pfnor does the default download not include the livecd?01:22
crediblepfn: the desktop cd is the livecd01:22
prince_jammysreikalusikka: tdawgedogg:  if you get both, your menus will have many applications, and you'll probably want to edit them.  then you'll have a separate menu for gnome and one for kde.  other than that, everything should work normally01:22
crediblethe "alternate" cd is a traditional installer01:22
pfnthat message needs to be clearer, thanks01:22
jeffMASTERflexpfn: the regular install disk is the livecd. the alternate disc has a text based installer only.01:22
pfnso it's the "desktop cd" and the "alternate desktop cd" the "alternate desktop cd" does not have the live cd?01:22
pfnok, thanks01:23
tdawgedoggyou know how in OSX how when ur in a program all the file edit view and shit goes to the top bar01:23
jeffMASTERflexpfn: correct01:23
pfnI just need a VM I can shell into to test a few things01:23
tdawgedoggis there any way i can get that with ubuntu01:23
* pfn needs a livecd01:23
sdsheekspfn: for install?01:23
jeffMASTERflexpfn: then download the regular desktop disc01:23
reikalusikkaahorriblemess: type 'sudo apt-get install g++'01:23
pfnjeffMASTERflex, yeah, doing that... the checkbox was a little ambiguous, making sure I got the right thing01:23
lakcajtdawgedogg, I really don't think so01:23
reikalusikkait should install the right libraries01:23
tdawgedoggalso the top and bottom bars just look kinda plain...01:24
pfnsdsheeks, no, for booting a VM and testing some pam stuff01:24
ahorriblemessreikalusikka: ok, thanks a lot for finding that out. I was looking on the anjuta site and I read something about g++ but there was a list... I got a little confused I guess. Thank you though01:24
tdawgedoggbesides compiz fusion what graphical tools can u use to snaz up ubuntu01:24
sdsheekspfn: just download the regular desktop install iso then.  It is bootable and goes into the gui.01:24
tdawgedoggcan I install something similar to the leopard dock01:24
pfnsdsheeks, yeah, already doing that, just wanted to make sure I was getting the right disk, the message, as I've stated, is ambiguous01:24
reikalusikkaahorriblemess: or you can go to synaptic packet manager and install from there01:24
jeffMASTERflextdawgedogg: if you want to customize check out www.gnome-look.org01:24
ahorriblemessreikalusikka: I already have it01:24
tdawgedoggwoot thanks01:25
reikalusikkaahorriblemess: well then go to synaptic package manager01:25
sdsheekspfn: Understand.  Yes I would think you have the right CD.  In the GUI it should have some installed apps such as firefox.01:25
hwildecan I use wine to simulate ie for those stinking webforms that wont work in firefox ?01:25
reikalusikkaahorriblemess: and search for 'g++'01:25
jeffMASTERflextdawgedogg: also, appearance settings you can find in System/Preferences/Appearance01:25
TheZealotAnyone know a good battery power monitor package?01:25
pfnsdsheeks, thanks, all I really need is an xterm  :)01:25
ahorriblemessreikalusikka: wait, is the command simply "$program.cpp -Wall -g -o program name" ?01:25
sdsheekspfn: grab the server edition then01:25
reikalusikkaahorriblemess: yeah01:26
* pfn downloads it as well, just in case01:26
sdsheekspfn: lighter weight and keeps you in the terminal01:26
sdsheekspfn: or you could download an already created vmware image01:26
ahorriblemessreikalusikka: ok i wanted to make sure I had it right. I'm going to be afk for a bit, thanks for the help so far I appreciate it01:26
reikalusikkaif nothing seems to happen it compiled it01:26

ablyssPolygon89, few questions for you: are you using the latest firefox? does the audio stop not play at all or just skip, and does it happen on any flash media or just a certain site?02:35
jmdcm1chael - yes, you can boot to the install cd, and you save your files to a flash drive02:35

ablyssPolygon89, i see.  I don't really know what to tell you.  Possibly corrupted libs.. did the install go through w/ out any hitches?02:39
bruenigit isn't as absurd as open office02:39
Dr_willisi use abiword a lot also. :02:39

prince_jammysDZEJMS007: yes02:40
DZEJMS007in ubuntu02:40
Polygon89ablyss, i googled the problem and it says it had something to do with flash not liking pulseaudipo..which i guess ubuntu uses now. I tried installing a package called libflashsupport but that didnt do anything02:40

Dr_willisDZEJMS007,  yes. go get it and try it out first if you want. Its free.02:40

jeffMASTERflexPolygon89: are you using hardy?02:41
Polygon89and jeffMASTERflex i cannot specify what folder to install the flash plugin to, it only wants to do it to my profile directory.02:41
Polygon89jeffMASTERflex, no, gutsy.02:41
jeffMASTERflexgutsy does not use pulse audio02:41
ablyssPolygon89, perhaps you can install the flash via synaptic and not manually?  Or have you tried both of those ideas  yet02:41
_Oz_we should ALL be on gutsy now.02:41
faileas_Oz_: not necessarily02:41
_Oz_Is hardy out now?02:42
Polygon89gutsy isnt a lts release.02:42
Polygon89oz, no.02:42
_Oz_I see.02:42
jeffMASTERflexPolygon89: you can install the flash plugin manually. all you have to do is download it from adobe and place the flashplayer.so file into /usr/lib/firefox/plugins02:42
Polygon89jeffMASTERflex, ive seen libpulseaudio updates come into from update manager...02:42
bruenigI hope ubuntu moves to rolling release soon so that it becomes usable02:42
speeddemon8803I still use Dapper, _Oz_ , for my server ;)02:42
* faileas notes some people would prefer to remain on 6.04 LTS cause its got longer support02:42
Polygon89and ablyss thats what i did originally but it didnt work, so i dled the one from adobe and same thing.02:42
jeffMASTERflexPolygon89: gutsy does NOT use pulseaudio, regardless of what you saw in the update manager02:42
_Oz_speeddemon8803: but why don't you use the latest and greatest?02:42
m1chaeli have a builtin sprint mobile broadband card on my laptop.. whats it like configuring ubuntu to use one of those?02:42
_Oz_We should all be up to date.  The more laggards, the more problems, in my view.02:42
speeddemon8803_Oz_ because dapper does what i need it to do :)02:43
bruenig_Oz_: you think you are up to date?02:43
faileas_Oz_: actually i think dapper is supported longer than gutsy will02:43
ablyssI actually had less problems with 7.01 than gutsy.. Gutsy has been the most problematic version of ubuntu I've used thus far02:43
ubotuA higher version number does not mean that it's better. Especially with packages such as the linux kernel. The packages in the Ubuntu repositories are stable and will work fine. You should have a better reason than "newer" when considering compiling from source or using 3rd party repos.02:43
nosemanexist a way to install ossim-framework with php5?02:43
Polygon89_Oz_, ubuntu is behind by default.02:43
Polygon89_Oz_, you are not using the latest and greatest even if you are using gutsy, or even hardy.02:43
faileasablyss: i personally found otherwise, but depends on the system02:43
bruenigubuntu is tremendously behind at all times02:43
_Oz_bruenig: absolutely.02:43
_Oz_Polygon89: nonsense.02:44
* speeddemon8803 looks at the floor02:44
Polygon89_Oz_, lol.02:44
bruenig_Oz_: so you aren't using ubuntu?02:44
_Oz_I am using the latest and greatest supported release.02:44
Dr_willisif you want cutting edge version #'s - a Source based disrto02:44
speeddemon8803im gonna step outta this conversation :)02:44
_Oz_I do not run betas or alpha.02:44
ablyssfaileas, it is almost so bad I'm thinking of downgrading02:44
faileasspeeddemon8803: nothing wrong with an older version02:44
leio_hi, just a test02:44
Polygon89_Oz_, this is the latest version of the kernel02:44
DZEJMS007thanx for help greetings from balkan02:44
bruenig_Oz_: ok well the latest supported release is 4 months behind the rest of the linux world02:44
speeddemon8803I know, thats my point faileas :)02:44
jeffMASTERflexof you want to slit your wrists... source based distros are where it's at02:44
Polygon89_Oz_, from kernel.org:
_Oz_bruenig: it is hte proper thing to do.02:44
Polygon89_Oz_, and doing a uname -r, i get this 2.6.22-14-generic02:45
nasamoHello. how do I play DVD?02:45
Polygon89_Oz_, not the latest and greatst.02:45
mbrush_Oz_ they mean the packages are not the latest released by the devs02:45
mbrushand kernel02:45
nosemanossim-framework with php5, any ideas?02:45
bruenig_Oz_: proper is a funny word, but the point is that you are not close to up to date02:45
* faileas is trying to decide if he should downgrade the install on CT(one of my plaptops). its got a load of issues on gutsy, but less on feisty, mostly to do with the hardware being wirerd02:45
bruenig_Oz_: you are up to date relative to the ubuntu cycle which is way behind so in some respect I guess you are02:45
jeffMASTERflexbruenig: i don't think it's WAY behind... debian is WAY behind.02:46
Trey_nasamo: get libdvdcss202:46
_Oz_bruenig: I am up to date, but most importantly, I am stable.02:46
bruenigjeffMASTERflex: well way is not well defined, way behind with respect to just about every other distribution02:46
prince_jammysi am depracated02:46
prince_jammysdepraved, i mean02:47
_Oz_mbrush: I realize that, but they are hopelessly misguided.02:47
JangariThe hardy alpha 4 liveCD appears to think it's 7.10, anyone had that yet?02:47
bruenig_Oz_: you are up to date in ubuntu terms, you are not up to date in reality, you are probably stable though. However I am up to date in real terms and stable02:47
jeffMASTERflexbruenig: everything is way behind until it is re-released. unless it's a rolling distro like arch02:47
_Oz_Impossible, bruenig.  You are essentially running alpha...  very dangerous.02:47
speeddemon8803I have a question, isnt ubuntu supported for 5 years on the server side?02:47
soulburnerim trying to view an XML file 'its a media server config' what browser/program do i need to view this with?02:48
soulburnerer well an xml address02:48
Trey_speeddemon8803: lts is, not sure about regular02:48
bruenig_Oz_: I do not use any development software, you are behind even with respect to final releases02:48
faileasspeeddemon8803: LTS is02:48
Jangarispeeddemon8803: i think 6.06 is supported until '1102:48
jeffMASTERflexsoulburner: any text editor02:48
nasamothanks Trey02:48
speeddemon8803well, thats great because im running 6.06..on my server :)02:48
_Oz_bruenig: I am not.  Do not be absurd.02:48
bruenig_Oz_: for instance you are on .22, the kernel is on .24, you are behind two kernel versions. .24 is not alpha, it is as final as .22 was when it got installed02:48
soulburnerjeffMASTERflex, well i have to view the file by going to a lan addy02:48
soulburneri dont know exactly where the file itseslf is located02:49
soulburneryou're supposed to go to the localip:7000 and configure the server02:49
_Oz_We are talking OS releases, bruenig, not kernel releases.  You are not stable, sir, and I urge you to rethink your ways.02:49
speeddemon8803Have we not drilled this discussion to the ground yet?02:49
soulburnerbut when i use firefox it just spits out a bunch of stuff doesnt really show anything02:49
faileasspeeddemon8803: if your running a server that needs to be up all the time for the next 5 years, LTS is better ;p02:49
jeffMASTERflexsoulburner: navigate to it with firefox, it can open xml files, then edit the file with a text editor when you get the location02:49
soulburnerjeffMASTERflex,  ok ill try that, thanks02:49
bruenig_Oz_: see you continue to try to confuse the issue by asserting just blankly that you are up to date, I have already conceded that within the ubuntu world you are up to date, but that the ubuntu world is itself behind, meaning that in absolute terms you are behind02:49
optxcan somebody please tell me how to fix this ubuntu-vistaloader problem ??02:50
prince_jammyscarefully crafted statements that invite endless arguments02:50
_Oz_In absolute and relative terms, gutsy is the latest and greatest, and that is the final word, bruenig.02:50
Daisuke_Idohi!  i did something dumb.02:50
mbrushoh man02:50
danbhfiveoptx: whats the problem?02:50
faileasbruenig: just curious, what distro do you use?02:50
karllenzhow bout a good media play armoke?02:50
bruenigfaileas: arch right now, I used ubuntu for quite a long time though, the release cycle annoyed me though02:50
speeddemon8803Ok, im not an op here, but cmon, we have drilled the issue over versions of ubuntu in the ground....past the point of no return and its flipped in its grave ;)02:50
prince_jammyshow to troll 10102:50
Daisuke_Idonot particularly dumb, just wrong.  i copied all my settings and such from my old install to this one02:51
jeffMASTERflex_Oz_: nah man, gutsy IS pretty behind. other distros are indeed ahead and stable, but that's due to the natural release cycle of ubuntu02:51
=== ActiveOne is now known as IdleOne

l7_Trey_: which pages would you check?02:59
icesword_Oz_, ubuntu runs fast in my mobile phone02:59
jeffMASTERflexAnonCon: then just input the information is asks of you02:59
speeddemon8803Jangari, that way we have more room for support and not just users trying to figure out commands for ubotu :)02:59
l7_Trey_: there's a lot of documentation on the macbook, but not much for the imac02:59
wsysvnwho had set up  Voip services on Ubuntu ?02:59
l7_the last documented imac seems to be from several years ago02:59
AnonConthank you, going to try that now02:59
EADGhw00djohn: open a terminal and have a look inside... "less Nautilus-D" tab to have a peek.03:00
Jangarii think the newer range of n series nokia mobiles runs on an operating system based on ubuntu03:00
wsysvnif anyone had set up successfully Voip over Ubuntu, plz shared & talk with me03:00
Jangariwsysvn: you can get skype03:00
speeddemon8803i know my ipod runs linux :)03:00
Trey_I7_: the boot camp method is the same for the Santa Rosa iMacs, and unless you are using wifi, most everything else works "out of the box"03:00
iceswordJangari, really03:00
Jangarirockbox, speeddemon8803?03:00
speeddemon8803Yup :)03:00
speeddemon8803I havent gone back to ipods proprietary stuff since i went to rockbox...03:00
Jangariyeah, is the video supported with a stable build yet? 5.5g?03:00
hw00djohneadg how do i do that?03:01
Trey_l7: of course, there are some quirks, such as the iSight and right-clicking, which can be resolved via clever googling03:01
ObsidianXwhat  package provides the man pages for the standard c libraries?03:01
kidemubuntu doesnt like 8800GTS 512 g92 card :(03:01
speeddemon8803I dont know jangari, as i have a nano :)03:01
AnonConI did that..then selected resolutions I wish to be able to use, then it finished, but nothing happened..did I need to do something different?03:01
AnonConIt's just weird that it worked upon installation, but not today?03:01
l7_Trey_: yeah i've been googling the ATI video cards and ubuntu, but i'm getting confusing results03:01
Ithappenshow would i check for problems with a sudden loss of sound?03:01
AtomicSparkkidem: support will always lag a little. you cant expect a card that was just released to have full support.03:01
icesword!ubuntu moblie phone03:01
karllenzhow do u install screenlets??03:01
wsysvni wana set up Voip system for my company using03:01

karllenzfrom gnome look.org03:01
icesword!ubuntu moblie phone03:02
l7_the imac is unique since they have ATI cards... i really wish apple went with nvidia :\03:02
jeffMASTERflexkidem: you can wait for the next stable release in april to provide the new nvidia drivers that support your card03:02
Flannel!fishing | icesword03:02
ubotuicesword: Please investigate with me only in /msg or in #ubuntu-bots (type also /msg ubotu Bot). Don't use commands in the public channels if you don't know if they really exist. Also avoid adding joke/useless factoids.03:02
karllenznew macs have nvidia cards03:02
iceswordJangari, what keyword should i use03:02
karllenzmacbook pros that is03:02
jeffMASTERflexkidem: or of course, you can try to install them yourself directly from nvidia, but that is not officially supported03:02
kidemi used ENVY which it installed it but the resolution jsut wasnt right, the toolbars were off the screen no matter what i ppicked03:02
prince_jammysicesword just type /msg #ubotu03:02
speeddemon8803without the # in ubotu icesword03:02
EADGhw00djohn: open a terminal, find it under Accessories -> Terminal. Then type "less Nautilus-D" tab key. (tab auto completes the file name :)03:02
AnonConI really need some resolution help if someone is willing.03:03
iceswordya,who should i listen to03:03

Jangarihang on03:04
jeffMASTERflexDezine: try hitting alt + f2 then typing gimpshop03:04
wsysvn<Wasney> I need some help...it seems someone in my family crashed my laptop while ubuntu was doing something...now I cant boot grub or ubuntu, and all a boot disk can get in windows running---> you must reinstall Grub03:04
Trey_member:l7_: older MacBook Pros have ATI cards, try this wiki https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MacBookPro, it has a video section with some suggestions and several links03:04
Jangariit's not bad, hw00djohn03:04
Daisuke_IdoEADG: okay, stellarium is awesome.03:04
EADGhw00djohn: oh.. hehe. Sec.03:04
DezineDoesn't open it jeffMASTERflex. Should I uninstall and try to compile it?03:04
Flannel!grub | wsysvn03:04
ubotuwsysvn: grub is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost grub after installing windows: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows - Making GRUB floppies & other GRUB howtos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto03:04
DezineFrom source that is03:04
Flannelwsysvn: first link talks about reinstalling grub03:04
kidemAnonCon   no i jsut installed ubuntu new system03:05
jeffMASTERflexDezine: or in a terminal you can type "whereis gimpshop"03:05
nanbudhguys would gnome and kde work well as parallel installs?03:05
Jangarinotice icesword http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maemo03:05
speeddemon8803Can I ask why a grub floppy would be useful on a computer with no floppy drive, but just a cd-rom?03:05
prince_jammysnanbudh: yes03:05
Jangarisorry, forgot the /03:05
Trey_Daisuke_Ido: Indeed03:05
AnonConI just installed yesterday, and it worked fine last night, not today though..any ideas?03:05
iceswordJangari, yeah thx03:05
AnonCon*the resolution03:05
Wasneywsysvn - I have the super grub disk, but I cant get it to re install...I followed the sites guide and no luck03:05
DezineIt replies, gimpshop:03:05
Flannelnanbudh: don't do parallel installs, just install them both.  (install ubuntu then install the kubuntu-desktop package, or install kubntu then install the ubuntu-desktop package)03:05
kidemno my brain is squishy now :P03:05
jeffMASTERflexDezine: try "which gimpshop"03:06
woodwizzleAt work I have access to a Windows XP machine. I would like to be able to access my home PC from that machine if I want to transfer files. Start downloads, etc. What do I need to do that?03:06
EADGhw00djohn: Junk. Don't need. It's not sys critical. Delete or keep it... it's really small, and I can't see it growing...03:06
kidemim been trying to get mine to work using different drivers etc03:06
nanbudhFlannel: okay, thats what i was planning. is there any other way too?03:06
prince_jammysnanbudh: when you install the second one, you will have many apps in both menus (kde and gnome).. you can edit the menus and seperate menus for each. other than that, everything works fine03:06
Dezinenothing happened03:06
Jangariwoodwizzle: probably better asked in #windows03:06
macogwwoodwizzle: your home pc runs ubuntu?03:06
nanbudhprince_jammys: thanks03:06
Trey_woodwizzle: search google for VNC03:06
Jangarithough vnc viewer might work03:06
caneno sound device can someone help03:06
EADGDaisuke_Ido: What are the stars? I'm googling my lat/long atm03:06
jeffMASTERflexDezine: it didn't install correctly then. there is no executable for it03:06
Flannelnanbudh: Those are the only sane ways, but this is linux after all, you can do it probably a thousand different ways03:06
AnonConI didn't change a thing with the resolution settings, or drivers...i am stumpued03:06
prince_jammysnanbudh: *have separate menus for each03:06
woodwizzleYeah I'm running 7.10 at home03:06
macogwwoodwizzle: if you install openssh-server on the ubuntu one, you can use WinSCP to SFTP into your home box and transfer files03:07
EADGDaisuke_Ido: err, I mean planets.03:07
DezineAlight, thanks for the tips they'll be useful03:07
woodwizzleI know I could SSH in but I'd prefer some graphical interface03:07
kidemi gave up for the night.... will try tommmorow03:07
macogwwoodwizzle: WinSCP has a graphical interface03:07
Trey_woodwizzle: there are SSH GUI frontends03:07
G1015I'm using CD/DVD creator to burn 4 gigabytes of files to a dvd from an external USB 2.0 hard drive... and the estimated time to do so is 1 hour 14 minutes at full speed... is there a reason for it taking so long?03:07
macogwwoodwizzle: it lets you click through the directories and grab a file then I think you hit an arrow button to send it to the other comp, but it might be drag & drop03:08
iceswordJangari, cannot open it,maybe it refused my ip03:08
rraajjWhere are gutsy's old kernels located? It seems that after I upgraded to the latest kernel, the previous kernels are being wiped out. I really needed to test an old kernel. Does anyone have any clue where they can be installed again?03:08
jmazaredocan anyone point me to a dual gateway03:08
kidemu know what really sucks is all the menus at the login the wors are un readable....cant even see my username typed in03:08
AnonConI can still see in 800X60003:08
macogwG1015: 1) USB isn't very fasts 2) burning things at a slow speed helps ensure the data's integrity...otherwise you get a coaster03:08
kidemi can see once im in...at that too03:08
woodwizzlemacogw: I mean I would like access to my X server so I can edit settings in my GUI programs03:08
Jordan_Uwoodwizzle, ssh -X03:09
jeffMASTERflexkidem: what kind of video card do you have?03:09
macogwwoodwizzle: oh.  umm if you install Cygwin on Windows it puts an X server on Windows so then you can use ssh -X to forward the X apps over ssh to the windows box03:09
macogwwoodwizzle: other than that, what they said about VNC03:09
kidemeBGA 8800GTS 512 G92\03:09
woodwizzleJordan_U: That'll work from a windows machine? I didn't know that.03:09
Jordan_Uwoodwizzle, ssh -C -X to compress ( may help speed )03:09
G1015macogw, but 1 hour and 14 minutes? Does that not sound a little long for burning anything?03:09
Jordan_Uwoodwizzle, If you have a windows version of X11 installed03:10
jeffMASTERflexkidem: you need the new nvidia drivers for proper support. all envy does is tear a new one into your system and is never recommended03:10
woodwizzleJordan_U: ah, i getcha.03:10
kidemwell i seen envy go get the new drivers 169.03:10
ph0rensicwhats the command to open the emerald theme manager from the command line?03:10
macogwG1015: ummm well i usually burn CDs at 2x and that takes about 15-20 minutes, I guess03:10
Rev_Slid3rhey folx ... anyone ever hit the glitch where you hit backspace and hold it down ... and it does not repeat?03:10
Rev_Slid3rlike just one backspace per press03:10
credibleph0rensic: emerald-theme-manager03:10
macogwph0rensic: if you just type em then hit the tab key twice, itll list all possible commands that start with em03:11
Azodonlunar eclips03:11
macogwG1015: CDs are a lot smaller than DVDs03:11
ph0rensiccredible, thanks you03:11
AnonConha..figured it out, and it only took an hour03:11
ph0rensicmacogw, thanks bro03:11
G1015macogw: It's just strange it use to take me around 10-15 minutes to burn a dvd03:11
macogwph0rensic: girl03:11
ph0rensicmacogw, Pardon me03:12
macogwG1015: check your burn speed settings03:12
macogwG1015: and the USB transfer speed could be factoring in...that can really take a while03:12
NativeAngelshow can u check what ports are bein used please03:12
NativeAngelson a linux shell03:12
Trey_NativeAngels: you mean like this http://dir.filewatcher.com/d/Ubuntu/i386/net/doscan_0.2.9-1_i386.deb.62718.html03:13
NativeAngelsno from the kernal03:13
G1015macogw, I think the problem is it's copying the files to the folder... which takes more time.. and then it burns from there... If it burned directly from the hard drive without copying it would probably be faster but I don't know how to make it do that03:13
NativeAngelsis there a command to list what ports are being used03:14
macogwG1015: what directory is it copying to?03:14
prince_jammysNativeAngels: netstat -a    i think03:14
luca_I'm trying to install ubuntu from an USB drive03:14
luca_I've followed this instructions: http://learn.clemsonlinux.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Install_from_USB_drive03:14
G1015macogw, CD/DVD creator03:14
macogwNativeAngels: from the kernel??  you can see your firewall (iptables...it's in the kernel) config like this: sudo iptables -L03:14
EADGNativeAngels: netstat -tup might help... not sure though.03:14
luca_but I'm getting a "/linuxrc: not found" error and then a kernel panic03:15
macogwG1015: the Nautilus one?  yep, that'd slow ya down.  you could just use something else for burning.  I like GnomeBaker, but others recommend Brasero on GNOME or K3B on KDE03:15
soulburnerwhat are those little things you can add to the desktop to view system resources?03:15
soulburnercpu proc/load/mem info03:15
macogwG1015: K3B is probably the one with the most configuration options since it's from KDE, but it can be used on GNOME just fne03:15
macogwsoulburner: conky?03:15
G1015macogw, cool I'll give one of those a try.. I thought it would be cool to just use what came installed in ubuntu without having to install anything else but thats cool03:16
soulburnermacogw,  perhaps let me search that and see03:16
macogwsoulburner: gkrellm?03:16
soulburneryes gkrellm03:16
jeffMASTERflexsoulburner: conky, but you can also use a system info applet on your panel03:16
soulburneri remember using that a long time ago03:16
macogwsoulburner: thats what i use03:16
soulburnerjeffMASTERflex, can it be made to be transparent and always shown on the destop?03:16
luca_I looked at the initrd.gz and the linuxrc is missing there is a "init" script though, but I changed syslinux.cfg to use that and I get a new error: mount: Mounting none on /proc failed: Device or resource busy03:16
luca_any ideas?03:16
Trey_luca_: I'm not sure what directions you used, but I know the ones at pendrivelinux.com work, you may want to see if there are any obvious differences that may screw things up, or just try the ones on the site.03:16
soulburnermacogw, gkrellm?03:16
jeffMASTERflexsoulburner: i think you are looking for conky. gkrellm is atrocious03:16
AnonConQuick question...what program should a budding C++ user look for?03:16
soulburnerah ok03:16
EADGNativeAngels: install iftop if you want to watch connections and ports r/t.03:16
icanhasadminanyone familiar with dsdts?03:16
macogwsoulburner: yes, thats what i use.  as far as transparent goes though...do you want something like the widgets on the OSX Dashboard?  Screenlets is the closest thing to that03:17
AnonConwanting to write some code03:17
luca_Trey_: I'll take a look to that, thanks03:17
macogwAnonCon: a text editor?03:17
soulburnerok ill check out conky first03:17
prince_jammysAnonCon: you mean text editor?03:17
Trey_AnonCon: I just go with a text editor03:17
jeffMASTERflexsoulburner: conky does transparancy and it can be customized and embedded on your desktop03:17
Trey_AnonCon: Ed is the standard :P03:17
AnonConmacogw: hmmm...I thought i needed a compiler03:17
prince_jammys!editors | AnonCon03:17

ubotuAnonCon: Compiling software from source? Read the tips at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingSoftware (But remember to search for pre-built !packages first)03:18
macogwAnonCon: if you install build-essential, gcc and all the other compilers will be installed03:18
G1015macogw,  do you prefer GnomeBaker or Bresero?03:18
macogwG1015: gnomebaker03:18
jeffMASTERflexAnonCon: you basically need a text editor and install build-essential . that's basically it03:18
soulburnermacogw, conky can be visable on the desktop at all times yes?03:18
G1015macogw,  K thanks man for the help sorry for all the questions03:18
kidemanyone familiar with AHCI?03:18
macogwsoulburner: conky sort of stays embedded in your desktop...so it looks like its right on the wallpaper03:18
jeffMASTERflexsoulburner: yes it can. but last i remember it had problems being used in tandem with compiz. not sure if that's been resolved ot not03:18

jeffMASTERflexsoulburner: conky is customized through a .conkyrc file. it's a little complicated. might want to search around online for others to get a feel for it03:22
rraajjDid Gutsy use the 2.6.22 kernel line from the beginning?03:22
macogwAnonCon: then you need a text editor in which to type the code. i use vim, which is a command line text editor. if you're used to Visual Studio, you'd probably prefer to install Eclipse and the C++ plugins03:22
macogwAnonCon: itll just download it from the internet and install it all at once03:23

macogwAnonCon: if you just type "sudo apt-get install build-essential" without quotes in the terminal, everything you need to compile code will download & instsall03:24

prince_jammysAnonCon: are you confused about how things are installed?03:24
NativeAngelshow do u list all processes in linux03:24
jeffMASTERflexAnonCon: "sudo apt-get install build-essential" that's it. then you type your code in an IDE or text editor. you can use eclipse, geany, vim, emacs, w/e you want to type it in03:24

jeffMASTERflexrilo: azureus now contains a non free component, so it's possible that they won't be packaging newer versions, but don't quote me on that03:27
macogwAnonCon: you can also install build-essential from system -> admin -> synaptic package manager (on gnome....it's called Adept and I don't know where it hides on KDE), but copying and pasting the commands we give you is faster than hunting down the package in the GUI :p03:27

ubotupen: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, join #ubuntu-bots and ask there.03:27
soulburnermac thanks for the suggestion on conky03:27
soulburneri like it03:28
CVD-PREADG, command not found03:28
macogwsoulburner: nohup means "no hang up" so when you close the terminal it doesnt close the program, and the & backgrounds the task so you get back to a prompt and can close the terminal03:28
TrustNoOnerilo, most private sites allow you to use azureus if it is past version, but transmission is also becoming more popular and more widely used and most private and public trackers allow that client as well03:28
yurimxpxmanhow do you redirect standard output to two files?03:28
EADGCVD-PR: I stand corrected.. acpi -V03:28
CyDcan I reconfigure an ubuntu install without re-installing when moving to new hardware?03:28
prince_jammysyurimxpxman: tee, probably03:28
CVD-PRsame thing03:28
pengot it03:28
EADGCVD-PR: hmm.03:28
JangariCyD: you could migrate your current installation to your new hardware03:28
bazhangpen miro is largely a rss scraper that also has a torrent engine, others such as azureus are only torrent clients03:28
soulburnerohhhhhhhhhh ok03:28
soulburnerthanks mac, im new back to linux havent used it in a few years03:29
soulburnerso i really appreciate the help03:29
penthen I'm sorry I asked the wrong question03:29
ryakufoxCan someone help? I think I'm missing something...I tried to sh something, but this is all I got. "cat: /lib/modules/2.6.22-14-generic/build/include/linux/version-*.h: No such file or directory"03:29
TrustNoOneanyone know a good site to get some cool bootloading screens in higher resolution?03:29
penhow about mutorrent and azerues?03:29
riloTrustNoOne: yea, I just like Azureus. So my question is, how can I install the newest Azureus cleanly? I know how to get it running, but as far as doing it "properly" I'm not exactly sure03:29
CyDJangari: i was wondering if dpkg -reconfigure kernel or some such might be enough03:29
faileaspen: utorrent runs fine in wine03:29
Trey_TrustNoOne: there is always GNOMEart03:29
jeffMASTERflexsoulburner: if you want to start up conky when you log in, add it to your System/Preferences/Sessions03:29
EADGCVD-PR: well, lets install acpi. sudo apt-get install acpi.03:29
macogwsoulburner: np  that's something even a lot of experienced users probably dont know about... one of the other UF mods was all "omg seriously??" when i told him that on the phone :p03:29
penfull functional?03:30
bazhangpen this is not really a chat channel; there are several sites that rate the various torrent clients03:30
prince_jammys!themes | TrustNoOne try here03:30
ubotuTrustNoOne try here: Find your themes at: http://www.gnome-look.org - http://art.gnome.org - http://www.kde-look.org - http://kubuntu-art.org - http://themes.freshmeat.net/browse/58/ - http://www.guistyles.com - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/ - Also see !changethemes and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuEyeCandy03:30
CyDJangari: or is there some sort of migration tool?03:30
TrustNoOnerilo,  there are instructions when you download azureus, it is a deb package I believe so it should install itself, personally I had a problem getting the new azureus running (it would crash on startup) so I am just using 2.5 version as most of my private trackers allow that client and its pretty much the same thing as the newer version minux a few extra's03:30
soulburneris ther ea way to change where its at on the desktop03:30
soulburnerwhere is the conf file located for this?03:30
macogwryakufox: the script you ran is looking for a file that doesnt exist03:30
jeffMASTERflexsoulburner: .conkyrc it's a hidden file in your home directory03:31
geniusHello everyone, please help, how to enable external monitor?03:31
macogwsoulburner: ~/.conkyrc03:31
ryakufoxmacogw: Any clue what it is?03:31
macogwsoulburner: ~ means your home directory, and . makes the file hidden03:31
soulburnerok great, ill have to look around through search engines for config helping03:31
riloTrustNoOne: so I just toss the .deb in /home/rilo and install it03:31
Jangarihay macogw, that's quite a nice command, i might employ that when initiating huge jobs over a ssh connection, i could initiate them, then close the terminal and shutdown, groovy03:31
soulburnerahhhhhh ok03:31
bazhanggenius dvi vga or what--plugging it in would be a good first step03:31
macogwsoulburner: check on ubuntuforums.  there's a thread called something like "show us your conkyrc" and so its full of screenshots with config files03:31
Trey_genius: did you try the monitor conf tool in the preferences panel (if you use GNOME)?03:31
Jangarii don't know, CyD, there are plenty of ways03:31
riloTrustNoOne: I know using Synaptic it will set it up in /usr/bin/03:31
soulburnerokay sweeet03:32
CyDok thanks Jangari03:32
JangariCyD: what's the new hardware?03:32
geniusI use Gnome, i've tryed monitor conf tool. But it does not help. I have notebook03:32
macogwryakufox: itd be the one that's listed before "no such file or directory" :P03:32
pendo anyone know why fullscreen any window ubuntu will become weird?03:32
Jangarithat's not very descriptive, pen03:33
penlike firefox or games or apps03:33
serachtHow do I remove the bottom bar in ubuntu03:33
serachtI have AWN installed and want to remove that one03:33
penfor example03:33
NativeAngelshow do u kill all processes in linux03:33
geniusIt was not easy on OpenSUSE. Looks like it is harder here too03:33
Jangariseracht: right-click it and hti delete this panel03:33
jeffMASTERflexNativeAngels: in a terminal type killall process03:33
macogwryakufox: actually, looking at my system, it's called version.h not version-something.h03:33
nickrudseracht: right click it, and select delete03:33
penfirefox will flicker when fullscreen, games fullscreen will do a hard crash, other apps will just plain crash and freezes03:33
macogwryakufox: so if you edit the file and change that line to point to version.h it might work03:33
riloTrustNoOne: well, Azureus gives you a tarball, but apparently this getdeb.net site has it03:33
prince_jammysNativeAngels: kill PID (process id) . to kill by name, do what jeffMASTERflex said03:34
CyDJangari: moving from nforce2 chipset to nforce4/69003:34
Ububegini dont want to enter sudo command everytime as i have to key the password... how do i log in as root... what is the command03:34
CyDlan usually seems to be a prob in this move03:34
serachtnickrud:  can I add it back easily though?03:34
bazhangpen sounds like a hardware issue fullscreen works fine here03:34
ubotuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo03:34
macogwUbubegin: sudo has a 15 minute timeout set by default03:34
JangariCyD: presumably your install is on a local hard drive?03:34
nickrudseracht: yes, right click another, and select new panel03:34
penbazhang: hardware?03:34
CyDJangari: yep03:34
penbazhang: what do you mean?03:34
bazhangpen specifically video card03:34
Ububeginmacogw: how to increase it to few hours...03:34
Jangarijust keep it then,03:34
Jangarino reinstallation necessary03:35
CyDJangari: just minor things like needing a diff lan driver or such is usually what happens03:35
macogwUbubegin: if you want to keep a terminal open as root, you can make it a root shell with "sudo -s" or "sudo su" (which are like "su") or "sudo -i" or "sudo su -" (which are like "su -" since they go to root's environment)03:35
penbazhang: I use NVIDIA go 760003:35
Ububeginmacogw: or do u know , how to login as the root03:35
penbazhang: is it not supported?03:35
Jangarioh well, CyD, cross those bridges when you come to them03:35

macogwkarllenz: the .x, you mean? it means version >=2 but < 303:36
nickrudkarllenz: the libraries that draw the stuff inside the window borders03:36
prince_jammys!gtk | karllenz03:36
ubotukarllenz: GTK is the !GIMP toolkit, which forms the base of !GNOME and is used by many applications to provide a !GUI03:36

bazhanguhoh envy pen03:38
penbazhang: is it not good?03:38
ubotuenvy is not needed or supported. Use the Resticted Manager to install binary drivers and see « /msg ubotu binarydriver »03:38
prince_jammysubotu to the rescue03:38
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about to the rescue - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi03:38

DaveyJbut to no avail03:39
karllenzdrag and drop does not seem to work03:39

jeffMASTERflexpen: because it is unsupported, unstable and tends to do more harm then good03:39
ryakufoxmacogw: I fixed the file error, but now it's saying "Error: could not resolve matching ip-library." You know what might be wrong?03:39
penjeffMASTERflex: really?03:39
bazhanguse the ubuntu way of doing things pen ;]03:39

karllenzit says them engine is needed03:40
bazhang!nvidia | pen03:40
ubotupen: To install the Ati/NVidia drivers for your video card, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto03:40
karllenzi need to complie it03:40
macogwkarllenz: which one?03:40
icanhasadminanyone familiar with the SB450 ati sound card issue?03:40
jeffMASTERflexkarllenz: for some themes you need a particualr themeing engine installed. find the ones you need in synaptic03:40
macogwkarllenz: if you install gtk2-engines it should install all of them03:40
YeTr2I'm currently running compiz. is there a way to change the behavior on double clicking the title bar to make it maximize instead of scroll up?03:41
YeTr2I mean roll up03:41
macogwYeTr2: yes, that setting is in ccsm03:41
YeTr2macogw: where?03:41
bazhangpen really good the way ubuntu does it, and they will keep your card uptodate with new kernel updates whereas envy needs to be run again and again and again etc03:41
JouvaI just tried to specify a FULL path to Gnome (or nautilus or whatever is handling it) for a mount point of drive of mine that I wanted to mount in a specific location and now it yells at me for doing so. How can I REMOVE said specified mount point from GNOME?03:41
macogwYeTr2: the settings thiing03:41
macogwYeTr2: compizconfig-settings-manager if you dont have it installed03:41
CVD-PR sensors = 32c, acpi -V = 40c?03:42
macogwYeTr2: it should be either in the general settings or in window manager settings, i think03:42
penbazhang: but then how do I choose what drivers I want to install?03:42
bazhang!ccsm | YeTr203:42
ubotuYeTr2: To enable advanced customization of desktop effects in Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy), install 'compizconfig-settings-manager'. A new option will appear in your appearance properties - See also !compiz - Help in #compiz-fusion03:42
nickrudJouva: you'll find it in    gconf-editor (run from the terminal)  , look for storage in the left pane03:42
YeTr2macogw: if you having looked at the configuration options in ccsm recently, it's freaken complex. where in this nice area of 50 something mini menus is it?03:42
soulburnermac, i've mounted another drive but it doesnt configure into conky as the diskspace, do i need to configure the other drive in03:42
soulburnerfor it to show?03:42
nickrudJouva: /system/storage that is03:42
macogwYeTr2: either in General or in Window Management03:42
bazhangpen the restricted driver manager should take care of that for you we can help with reconfiguring x server if need be ;]03:43
macogwYeTr2: i dont have compiz on this computer, so i cant really be exact03:43
Jouvanickrud: Ahh no direct way then eh? That's kinda dumb that they DIDN'T tell the user that it needs to NOT be a full path and then not allow one to back out gracefully03:43
macogwsoulburner: i dont know. i dont use conky, i use gkrellm03:43
penbazhang: but I found out that the current 100 series driver is not for my laptop03:43
soulburnerahhhhh ok03:43
nickrudJouva: been bit by that myself03:43
penbazhang: it's too beta03:43
pentoo bugy03:43
penbazhang: so I downgrade to 90 series03:43
JouvaAlso I don't see it in there03:44
thechitowncubsAnyone know of a way to fix my ext3 partition through windows?03:44
penbazhang: and I remember that NVIDIA changelog says 100 series are for 8xxx cards03:44
nickrudJouva: it will be under /system/storage/_org_fredesktop -etc03:44
mjw-thechitowncubs boot with a livecd and check it from there03:44
Jouvanickrud: I see default options for various file sysytems03:44
thechitowncubsAfter last kernel upgrade it borked my partition i guess03:44
bazhangpen well if you use envy you need to look to the envy people for support; as far as I am aware envy is not supported here--I dont make the rules (sadly)03:44
thechitowncubsmjw-, thats what i thought, im having trouble burning the iso i just downloaded tho03:45
penbazhang: oh03:45
reasonsthechintowncubs, what is wrong with it?03:45
penbazhang: then do you know how to downgrade or do something like restrict new drivers to be install?03:45
cmuellerwhats the best linux bit torrent client03:45
serachthi guys with Vista you have a lot of control over different things regarding power, like strength of WiFi, max CPU speed etc. Is there an app similar to that for Ubuntu?03:45
bazhangthechitowncubs: what specific problem with burning please be precise03:45
nickrudJouva: arg, /system/storage/volumes/_org etc that is03:45
JouvaI can't find volumes03:46
thechitowncubsbazhang, well, i downloaded one of the dvd iso's and it 2 of my burning apps(CD Burner XP, Power ISO) say that my ISO is not valid.03:46
JouvaI only see default_options under /system/storage03:46
bazhangcmueller: that is an argument for the ages ;] transmission, deluge and a few others are good clients03:46
cmuellerno golden one like utorrent then:/03:47
bazhangthechitowncubs: try isorecorder203:47
penbazhang: no ideas?03:47
ToddEDMhey guys, i got a couple quick questions.... is there a way to shut down a PC(ubuntu) on my network, from my laptop03:47
nickrudJouva: you can do   gconftool --recursive-unset /system/storage/volumes , that will unset all your custom mounting stuff, and then you can redo03:47
bazhangcmueller: utorrent works under wine03:47
DG19075thechitowncubs: Try using BurnCDCC03:47
thechitowncubsthank you03:47
thechitowncubsi will03:47
cmuellerlets see...03:47
DG19075I've used it to burn ISO's under Windows and it works like a charm03:48
bazhangpen you want advice while still using envy? not sure what you are asking here--the restricted manager will choose the one that ubuntu teams has selected not sure about downgrading though03:48
EADGseracht: Not one all-inclusive app as far as I'm aware, but there are seprate programs; iwconfig for txpower, cpufreq-set for speed...03:48
reasonscmueller, I use rtorrent though deluge is nice if you want a GUI03:48
_Oz_ToddEDM: I wish there was a way to do that.  I'd do it if so.  But no, it is impossible...03:48
karllenzhow about screenlets how do they get installed?03:48
Jouvanickrud: THAT didn't do it EITHER... weird.03:48
serachtcool EADG, I'll check that out03:48
penbazhang: I thought restricted manager will always choose the newest driver?03:48
penbazhang: and the newest now is 100 series?03:48
serachtalso, do you guys know anything like widgets to what mac has for ubuntu03:48
ToddEDM_Oz_:  damn, my PC has alot of fan noise, and is bothering me rigt now, as im in bed03:49
=== badboy is now known as badboy[away]
Jouvanickrud: I mean I know you're telling me the right thing for what I am speaking of: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-mount/+bug/10766803:49
nickrudJouva that is very strange, that's how the custom mounting stuff gets done03:49
jeffMASTERflexpen: it will choose the newest availabel driver supported by ubuntu03:49
yurimxpxmanis there any way to slow down the output of cat?03:49
cmuelleri like command line actually03:49
penjeffMASTERflex: but how about my hardware?03:49
cmuellercan load stuff up from work easily then in a screen session03:49
bazhangpen well there will always be some lag time for when nvidia releases new drivers and ubuntu packages them for use in the restricted manager03:49
cmuelleri think i used somethign liek bit tornado before03:49
reasonscmueller, rtorrent is CLI and is amazingly powerful03:50
thechitowncubsrtorrent is the best, by far performance and features03:50
EADGseracht: I'd recommend to you the search feature in Synaptic. Surprising what you can find in the Ubuntu software repositories. Dead easy to install - and remove if it's not to your liking.03:50
nickrudJouva: are you running gconf-editor as root?03:50
JouvaI JUST noticed that03:50
riloso how do I set Azureus to be my default bittorrent application? I used a .torrent's properties to open with Azureus, but all the programs still see gnome-btdownload as the default.03:50
serachtwhat is synaptic03:50
JouvaI figured I needed to run it as root for administrative purposes03:50
nickrudheh. I always start at the bottom of bug reports03:50
riloseracht: the package manager... how you install new applications03:51
bazhangseracht the package manager gui03:51
nickrudJouva: gconf controls your custom settings03:51
serachtoh, I have been doing apt-get lol03:51
Jouvanickrud: Ok. And I found it and changed it and testing now03:51
EADGseracht: It's akin to Add/Remove Programs in Win, but much more powerfull/usefull.03:51
jeffMASTERflexrilo: right click on a torrent file and click on properties. go to open with to change associations03:51
gmcastilhow do I use dpkg to list all packages available in a remote repository?03:52
rilojeffMASTERflex: I did, it didn't work. If I reopen the .torrent file, it's still selected as Azureus. That's what I said I did03:52
JouvaAHH much better03:52
jeffMASTERflexrilo: uninstall that gnome-bt download garbage03:52
EADGseracht: You can spend a few days poking around in Synaptic...03:52
serachtscreenlet isn't on there03:53
iceswordgmcastil, synaptic03:53

bazhangseracht: they have their own site03:53
penhow do I do it?03:53
gmcastilicesword: i prefer the command line tools actually03:53
jeffMASTERflexrilo: ubuntu-desktop is not a required package. it is a meta package and is safe to delete03:53

gmcastilicesword: apt-get handles all the repository interactions, doesn' it?03:54
metasyntaxI tried loading it with gdb `symbol-file' but then gdb seg faults.03:54
nickrudseracht: not yet in the repos, will be for hardy03:54
cmuellerrtorrent is my baby then03:54
jeffMASTERflexrilo: nothing. it's a pointer package. it points to other packages but doesn't really do anything on its own. uninstalling it will have no affect03:54
nickrudJouva: you would have found it, you had the bug report.03:54
EADGCVD-PR: acpi got installed succesfully I see.03:54
CVD-PRbut waht is the Core0 Temp?03:54
rilojeffMASTERflex: but I still want to set Azureus as the default. ok about the ubuntu-desktop03:55
icanhasadminmy acpi is so screwed right now03:55
nickrudCVD-PR: the temp in your first processor03:55
EADGCVD-PR: I dunno. You running a duo core?03:55
geniusI still have problems switching to external monitor on my notebook. I've tryed millions of times to set Monitor 1 to default with different settings.03:55
jeffMASTERflexrilo: if it's the only package that can open up torrents, that would make it the default, wouldn't it?03:55
Jouvanickrud: True but it's sometimes easier for me to talk to somebody, even if they don't end up being the one that helps directly. Sometimes I need to ask somebody a question before my brain kicks in ;)03:55
CVD-PRnot just AMD64 EADG03:55
RangdeBasantihow to do some thing that automatically checks wheather a proccess has not been runing for a specified time. if it isnt, runs it and logs in a file that it has made it run.?03:55
geniusIt does not save settings at all! :(03:55
jeffMASTERflexrilo: and if you are wondering how to do it directly from firefox, just go to preferences/applications in firefox and change the default for torrents03:56
penanyone? envy to ubuntu?03:56
ubotuenvy is not needed or supported. Use the Resticted Manager to install binary drivers and see « /msg ubotu binarydriver »03:57
nickrudRangdeBasanti: monit is one of many apps that do that03:57
EADGCVD-PR: ahh, dunno man. I have same on this lappy and all I get is CPU xx. I wouldn't loose sleep over it though.03:57
rilojeffMASTERflex: that's what I was thinking when I tried it before, but that's obviously not the right way to do it. I use Opera and have that menu open... just trying to change what comes up in the default field03:58
RangdeBasantinickrud monit ?03:58
nickrudRangdeBasanti: take a look at the description in synaptic, or  apt-cache show monit03:58
bazhangpen I gave you a link earlier; you can /msg ubotu nvidia for the link again03:58
penbazhang: I opened the link already03:59
jeffMASTERflexrilo: i have never had a problem changeing file association by right clicking on a file, properties, and changing the default in open with. i use transmission, even with other torrent apps installed, and don't havea problem with file associations03:59
penbazhang: it only says open up restricted manager03:59
thunderchicken_anyone know if its possible to mount --bind multiple folders into one?03:59
RangdeBasantinickrud ok. monit will run it. if its not run for the last 2 hours. (specified time) ?03:59
rilojeffMASTERflex: yea, I don't know why it's not working. That's the first thing I did.03:59
nickrudRangdeBasanti: yes, among other things03:59
mbrushthunderchicken: i tried this a while ago03:59
bazhangpen and then what is the issue?03:59
penbazhang: if I enable the driver, what should I do with envy?03:59
penbazhang: leave it there?04:00
penbazhang: will it cause problem with x?04:00
thunderchicken_how did it work out?  everytime i load another folder it gets rid of the first folder i bound04:00
jeffMASTERflexrilo: the easiest way, of course, is to get rid of the bt-download program and it's associated packages04:00
penbazhang: I was worrying about the questions it might happen if I enable it in the manager04:00
tdawgedogghey when i try to enable nvidia under restricted driver manager i get this error "E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.04:00
tdawgedoggE: _cache->open() failed, please report.04:00
mbrushi ended up using UnionFS to unite the two bind mounted dirs04:00
zerodamageI remember some older linux/unix systems that I've used had a local email system on it that would let you send email from one user to another locally only and would notify you when you logged into the system.  Is there something like that for Ubuntu for the command line?04:00
TrustNoOnerilo, sorry about the delay i was on the phone, download the tar file, extract to wherever /usr/bin is fine, then go into terminal, go to that directory and run ./azureus and it will start up04:00
nickrudzerodamage: you can install exim4 or postfix, they provide local mail delivery04:01
thunderchicken_mbrush ive been reading about unionfs but i cant seem to get it to work if i try and unionfs two folders to another folder the folder i want them to bind gets deleted04:01
penbazhang: what do you suggest?04:01
riloTrustNoOne: I used the .deb from that other site and dpkg'd it in my /home/rilo04:01
riloTrustNoOne: just trying to associate it with .torrent files now04:01
mbrushthunderchicken_ bind mount two seperate dirs and then unionfs them together in a third dir04:02
reasonsWhile I doubt I'll get an answer here, I'll try. In every file manager I use there is the gnome footprint in the top right corner. Is there a way to remove or change that icon?04:02
tdawgedoggE: _cache->open() failed, please report. any ideas???04:02
zerodamagenickrud: I looked at postfix but it did not seem to do what I wanted.  I want whatever did what I remember from way back when.  Maybe there isn't something but I recall logging into the system and having the system notify me I had some messages and I could read them and reply if I wanted.  I want to do that on ubuntu server without an overly huge hassle.04:02
TrustNoOnerilo,  just right click a torrent file, go to properties, go to the "open with" tab and add azureus in there, click ok or close and it should be associated with it04:02
thechitowncubsHello, can anyone help me repair my fileysystem, I got into the live cd finally04:03
bazhangpen not sure as I have never used envy--I would suggest backing up on a regular basis as stuff like that (third party) who knows what will happen--enable the drivers in the restricted driver manager and then follow the rest of the instructions from that link04:03
NativeAngelshow do u find whats running on what port in linux04:03
bazhangpen if you need help configuring resolution once that is done then we can likely help out04:03
thechitowncubsNativeAngels: nmap04:03
penbazhang: ok04:04
nickrudzerodamage: probably was a custom setup for that old distro. Personally, I think that exim4 (set for local delivery only) , and mutt would do what you want04:04
thechitowncubsnmap <host>04:04
penbazhang: btw, will enabling the driver change the xorg.conf?04:04
metasyntaxNativeAngels: netstat -anp <- run as root04:04
zerodamagenickrud:  thx.  I will take a look at those two04:04
penbazhang: or errors with the kernel?04:04
bazhangreasons it would easier if you used xfce to customize things (put an Apple there for example ;] ) though it is also possible under gnome04:04
riloTrustNoOne: yea, that's what I did, but no worky04:05
thechitowncubswhen I try to run fsck from the live cd i get: fsck.ext2: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/hda04:05
thechitowncubsCould this be a zero-length partition?04:05
riloTrustNoOne: well, when I closed and opened the properties, Azureus was still selected, but other programs still see the old client as the default04:05
nickrudthechitowncubs: did you fsck /dev/hda ?04:05
TrustNoOnerilo, im a little busy doing other stuff but im working on the new version of vuze as i would like to get that one working as well, so ill let you know04:05
bazhangpen not sure how that could make errors in the kernel, but dont you want your xorg conf file to be changed? was that not the point of this whole exercise?04:06
riloTrustNoOne: it's working great for me... just had to remove that Vuze content layer04:06
TrustNoOneoh ok04:06
penbazhang: I think I have a working one already04:06
thechitowncubsnickrud: yes04:06
penbazhang: I don't want to create panic04:06
amicrawlercan any body tell me what i need to do  for k3b in makeing the data burn as date and time04:06
penbazhang: that doesn't feel good04:06
nickrudthechitowncubs: you fsck partitions, not disks. Like  fsck /dev/hda104:07
bazhangpen then load it up and see what happens--using the restricted drivers is the safest bet though04:07

nickrudRangdeBasanti: if it runs as a root process, only root (or admin) can stop it. And it will restart programs that have stopped, yes04:09
bazhangpen hmm no way of knowing until you try correct? envy was the issue and now we will have to see04:09
AtomicSparkkdc1956: flash movies?04:09
cannonballNativeAngels: If you change that netstat to 'netstat -ltunp' it will show all processes listening on tcp and udp ports only, including the process name.  -a shows all open sockets, both network sockets and unix sockets, including open streams, which is a much longer list than the -l version.04:09

Newbuntu2can someone help me start my RAID array? I switched to ubuntu and I'm not sure how to start it back up04:13
Newbuntu2(software RAID 5)04:13
TrustNoOnerilo, did you have older azureus installed prior to installing vuze? you can get vuze running by running the shell script, but for the file associations to be moved from the old one to the new one, you said you did something?04:14
Staggerhello, i am facing a weird connection issue here. My connection works fine other than when i try to use XChat, Pidgin (or aMsn, no difference), or synaptic. It works if I manually set the DNS - it wont work if I leave the DNS on (my router, a dlink, has DHCP and automatic DNS enabled by deafault). Now, if I edit resolv.conf to set my DNS of choice and restart, internet wont work. Same is true if I set DNS manually on the DLi04:14
Staggernk. I have noticed that before returning the error message, XChat tries to connect to What is going on? thanks :)04:14
prettyrickyYep I just realized it,, do i have to unistall it cause it gave me an error message04:14
AtomicSparkNewbuntu2: software raid 5? i don't believe it!04:15
riloTrustNoOne: I right-clicked the torrent and changed the "open with" to Azureus04:15
TrustNoOneya but i already have the older version installed right, so it opens with old version, im guessing you didnt have the old one installed, or you removed it04:15
hatterStagger, when you reboot you are getting dns from dhcp,04:16
Newbuntu2atomicspark: Should I past my raidtab file? ;)04:16
lynxxanyone else get an io-apic error on boot?04:16
hatterthe routers as dns servers are crappy04:16
tdawgedoggnickrud: thanks a lot man it worked ur the man04:16
hatterchange the dns server you use in the dhcp server04:16
AtomicSparkStagger: keeping your dns on your gateway works for most routers. they just forward the information on.04:16
nickrudtdawgedogg: heh. I read the error message :)04:16
fooerr, firefox is crashing with this: Segmentation fault (core dumped) .. it crashes when I'm not doing anything. It's crashed 4 times in the past hour. I have a fresh install of 7.10 ... any ideas?04:16
hatterpfff, i have used plenty, they are unreliable04:16
tdawgedoggi typed it in terminal just without sudo04:16
hatteras dns servers04:16
AtomicSparkwell. i use reliable routers *cough*04:17
macogwStagger: you mean because the resolv.conf changes when network manager connects and tries to set it to what it thinks is right?04:17
nickrudtdawgedogg: ah. with dpkg and apt-get , like all system commands, you need sudo04:17
NativeAngelsim gettin an error binding to a port04:17
NativeAngelsbut i cant see anything runing there04:17
hatterAtomicSpark, :)  I am sure there are reliable ones, but here in Australia, the cheap d-link, netgear, etc are not so great04:17
macogwStagger: you *could* "sudo chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf" to make that file immutable.  it won't be able to be changed, deleted, renamed, or have its mode (read, write, execute settings) changed.  to undo it, you'd use "sudo chattr -i /etc/resolv.conf"04:17
jeffMASTERflexfoo: try deleting the .mozilla folder in your home directory and reinstalling firefox04:17
nickrudhack alert!04:18
Staggermacogw: yes i have used the chattr command04:18
NativeAngelshow can i clear port 806704:18
AtomicSparkNewbuntu2: anyways, i would advise to never run a software raid. if your software gets corrupt for any reason (your os is down) you risk losing everything, which defeats the point of raid.04:18
macogwStagger: it manages to change the file again even after you chattr +i?04:18
AtomicSparkNewbuntu2: anyways if you used a hardware controller for it, you can just use ubuntu to set up LVM on it if you want the feature to expand in the future.04:18
hatterAtomicSpark, i have been using s/w raid for quite a few years with no problems04:19
Staggermacogw: no, after that the file stays the same but connection fails completely. i wont even get through to my router04:19
riloTrustNoOne: I had run apt-get remove azureus so I thought it was removed... but it apparently wasn't. I opened Azureus up through the menu, and it was the new version. Then, I noticed in Synaptic Azureus was still there, so I removed it... then the Azureus link in the menu disappeared04:19

Staggermacogw: pardon i do get to my router but not to the internet04:19
macogwStagger: do you get an IP from the router?04:19
TrustNoOnerilo,  ok so you didnt remove with synaptic then04:19
hatterAtomicSpark, :) Of course04:20
Staggermacogw: yeah04:20
riloTrustNoOne: nope04:20
macogwStagger: can you ping your DNS servers?04:20
Staggerhow do i check that?04:20
macogwStagger: ping the IP addresses you put in resolv.conf04:20
Staggermacogw: ok I will do that and be back in min04:21
Staggermacogw: thanks :)04:21

ubu2I've been having trouble with getting the console resolution to stay at 1024x768.  I added nvidiafb to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and un-blacklisted it... and it worked beautifully, but then X didn't.04:21

warriorforgodOk.  Next question.  When I type ifconfig in a terminal, none of the interfaces shows an ip address, however I have full internet access.04:28
EADGubu2: K, Gutsy did some things ab it diffrent than previous releases in that the framebuffer is disabled by default. So what ya need to do is re-enable it. Pretty easy, but you need to edit 3 files.04:28
EADGubu2: gimme a couple minutes to track down a url for you.04:29

gavoyep   ill just add it to the end of the standard entries   brb04:41
Jouvausr13: That's the problem. I do have it on my desktop, but my laptop I HAVE to keep Windows on.04:41

nrossinOkay, for some reason everything in Ubuntu is crashing all of a sudden.  No sound, XChat crashes, Firefox crashes, Amarok and Exaile both crash...  Even restarting X hasn't solved anything.  I haven't installed anything... was just watching videos online and suddenly lost sound... Anyone know how I can fix this without rebooting?04:42
penbazhang: so tell me what should I do next?04:42
usr13Jouva: Dual boot. How big is the drive?04:42
bazhangsudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg in the terminal pen04:42
cakedonkeyHey all.04:42
TrustNoOnerilo, i didnt get the deb, i got the tar... and it WORKS i just need the icon, mind sending it to me?04:42
bazhangnrossin: what extra repos you got in your sources list?04:43
riloTrustNoOne: I thought there was some residue from the old installs so I just did it all over again... there was that Azureus script in the directory after I installed from the .deb the first time and it removed things so I didn't the second time... alright04:43
Jouvausr13: Not big enough to dual boot really. I do some custom Windows software development for a consulting firm, so I kinda need Windows for that and need the space ;)04:43
nrossinbazhang: Uhm, nothing out of the ordinary.  I don't actually think I have ANY extra repos.04:43
TrustNoOnerilo, if you wouldnt mind just throwing it on megaupload or some sharing site and sending me the link, id appreciate...04:43

Jouvausr13: Oh a bigger one. I see. No. Can't afford it right now and don't have the urge to dual boot for the most part anyway, and would put extra space to Windows' use anyway :/04:44
bazhangnrossin: did you install something like awn or other? are you running compiz? have you tried disabling it if so?04:44
nrossinbazhang: I've tried restarting X, but that hasn't helped either.04:44
fredmvNot sure how re-hashed of a topic this is, and I've searched around, but how should I go about fixing "Unable to initialize SDL: No available video device". Anytime I launch a game (that preseumably uses the SDL libs) I get this error.04:44

n8tuserhatter--> you did not answer me, can your ISP dns server resolve a 192.x.x.x address?04:56
pen_bazhang: why?04:56
gavohey all  i was here before... urmmm figured out my problem   ... does 64bit kubuntu support Core2Duo processors? because the 32bit version is working without the black screen and kernel sync problems ive been having...04:56
UnIdioti can disable it temporarily though04:57
bazhangpen_: what happened in the restart?04:57
s_unixUnIdiot: in X -> xset -b04:57

NaisenuHi. I am trying to get dual monitor setup working on Ubuntu. Using an nVidia GeForce 6600GT (no problems with the driver previously.) Went through "sudo dpkg -reconfigure xserver-xorg". It appeared to "switch" primary monitors around. Now one monitor is only showing "blue" and the other one has "no signal". Connecting the "no signal" with VGA. Blue screen is DVI.05:20

bazhangprettyricky_: with compiz or without05:26
n8tuseryell0w--> dont know, i thought you want a really bleeding edge, and i suggested those two05:26
FourX4LuvnUnIdiot: I think it's bash.  Look for .bashrc in your home folder.. If you do add "set bell-style none" to it.  That should stop the speaker in the terminal.. and the other setting in gnome should stop it from any graphical programs.05:26
prettyricky_I currently have compiz05:26

brambothere is no way around it? cuz it seems most every thing i get in  .deb dont work05:41

bazhangpen you have done so much customization with the hardy libs and envy I am not sure how you can get back05:59
penploom: I want to downgrade some packages05:59
ploompen, usually its easier to fix them and install new versions ;-)05:59
penbazhang: easy, just downgrade the libs05:59
g35cusr13: do you know if there is a way to open a shell via a shortcut of some sort in fluxbox, i have no icons in my fluxbox desktop and i dont know how to open a shell.05:59
penploom: but with the new packages, they conflict with the dev files05:59
usr13StaggerLee: Verify your nameservers.  Plug them in one at a time and do host av.com   or   host yahoo.com  or  host google.com  and verify that each one is resolving domain names.05:59
ploompen,  anyways - aptitude is my friend in doing just that06:00
n8tuserStaggerLee--> paste into pastebin the contents of your /etc/nsswitch.conf06:00
bazhangpen then have at it; but that kind of customization is just what this channel abhors and often leads to troubles like your own06:00
njolhow to "make, make install" debian way?06:00
penbazhang: so how do I downgrade packages?06:00
usr13StaggerLee: See how fast they resolve a domain name for you.  One may be responding very slow.  The fastest one should be first in the list.06:00
ploompen, it provides nice suggestions to choose from - even when downgrading06:00
penwhat should i type in ploom06:00
n8tusernjol--> no difference to others, if you have the Makefile and the targets for it06:01
usr13StaggerLee: Try using the router's IP address.  (Most routers have caching name server enabled, and if it is not, enable it, and use it for  primary nameserver.)06:01

ubotuThe Alternate CD is a classical text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate checkbox on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal06:23
n8tuserxUFOx--> tried  removing the splash ?06:23
xUFOxthats deleting the 'splash' from that command line right?06:23
xUFOxif so,  yes06:23
ubotuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD06:24
xUFOxahh..ill try that out..thanks!06:24

ere4si!cron | syndr006:27
ubotusyndr0: cron is a way to schedule execution of software/scripts. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CronHowto  -  There is also a decent Howto at http://www.tech-geeks.org/contrib/mdrone/cron&crontab-howto.htm06:27

FourX4LuvnTrustNoOne: If you want an IRC client that supports scripting, aliases, popups, etc.. like mirc, check out x-chat if you haven't.  It's pretty much the *NIX version of mirc06:30

pen_Jangari: k, thx06:31
FourX4Luvnz3x: Don't know how to disable BT.. but would it be possible for you to use the server CD instead?06:31
ubotunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like Freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit06:31

syndr0whats the file type that you would save acron file as06:42
Slurpeei could never get my alsa sound drivers to work. i was playing with alsa settings trying to install the drivers and get sound to work.  i reboot and now i am stuck wit the "your session only lasted 10 seconds" menu.  i can only boot to the command line.  any ideas ?06:42
luisajewsus_ you probably need to replace it by the other version (open vs restriscted, someone correct me if I'm wrong)06:42
Jewsus_Where can I find the other version?06:43
musikgoatbrambo: then go to the updates tab, and check unsupported updates (backports)06:43
paltemaltei have a dell inspiron 1100 that i finally got working (ubuntu does not correctly detect its video card) .. but now ubuntu starts up, and gdm starts up, and everything is fine - until i use it for a few minutes, start a few programs etc.  then the whole xserver becomes so slow not even the mouse pointer can move without hacking. does anyone have any idea of what might be wrong?06:43
musikgoatbrambo: then close it and press reload06:43
luisajewsus_ http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=67950006:43
musikgoatbrambo: then back in teh terminal, do the same, and you should have -granparadiso06:44
Jewsus_thanks for the link luisa06:44
paltemaltethe video card is particularly crappy, with no ram memory of its own, rather it shares the machines memory.  but the thing is windows xp can handle this alright, so i was hoping and assuming ubuntu could too06:44
luisapaltermalte might want to check that link too06:44
bullgard4What programs utilize or evaluate the contents of the file /var/log/udev for what purpose?06:44
bramboah its getting it now thanks all06:45
paltemalteluisa: hmm, xgl, don't think that is enabled as it is06:45
iceman_hello all06:46
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about gdm - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi06:46
brambothe new firefox over writes the old one?06:46
ol_dude67paltemalte, what video card and how much ram are you using?06:46
presumptious85z3x, u still here?06:46
luisabullgared4 udev is the device manager for the Linux 2.6 kernel series. Its primary function is managing device nodes in /dev. BASICALLY it tells your computer your hardware. Basically :P06:47
paltemalteol_dude67: its a an inte 82845G/GL, and i can set the amount of ram it can use with VideoRam (actually i must set it)06:47
musikgoatbrambo: no06:47
paltemalteol_dude67: it seems to work the longest when i use exactly 64 mb06:47
ubotuVai su #ubuntu-it se vuoi parlare in italiano, in questo canale usiamo solo l'inglese. Grazie!06:47
paltemalteol_dude67: which is the recommended level too, when having 256 mb in total06:47
iceman_does anyone know how to install ubuntu on a computer with nvidia graphics?06:48
bullgard4luisa: I know already what you have told me. My question was more specific and not general.06:48
bramboi have the first try i hav nvidia graphics06:48
ol_dude67paltemalte, the problem is i think that you need at least 256 to run ubuntu as well not including the video how much swap?06:48
ol_dude67i run a intel 945gz at 64 and it is good but i have over a gig of ram06:49
paltemalteol_dude67: i never got the opportunity to set the swap size i don't think, but it doesn't seem to start using the swap anyways06:49
bramboi dont see a difference is the new firefox any different looking?06:50
paltemalteol_dude67: i didn't realize ubuntu required that much ram, but if that is the case, then i might as well stop trying now :p06:50
ol_dude67paltemalte, try using the xubuntu instead.06:50
ol_dude67less ram required06:50
presumptious85u were trying to help me out earlier06:50
presumptious85but my lights went off06:50
paltemalteol_dude67: oh yeah?  i'll check it out06:50

musikgoatbrambo: the graphics of beta 2 are not different (at least in ubuntu currently, i haven't looked into why), but are on windows06:51
ol_dude67paltemalte, its the same with windows now, if your running vista with that amount your going to go real slow as well.06:51
musikgoatbrambo: but its MUCH speedier06:51
apersonI just installed Ubuntu from Vista. I didn't back anything up and don't even have a windows back up CD. What I Want to know is how can I get back to Vista, my biggest fear is that ubuntu formated my HDD and installed itself. I've tried using the boot menu then hard drive boot but all that comes up is Ubuntu which I currently don't want.06:51
presumptious85and i saved the file to be extracted in my documents folder06:52
musikgoatpresumptious85: yes, I remember,  did you follow the commands I told you?06:52
AntiUSAcan anyone help me with getting a generic laptop webcam to work? I will pay you $10!!! maybe even more06:52

musikgoatpresumptious85: cd Documents06:52
paltemalteol_dude67: oh yeah no doubt with vista .. i was still hoping i could squeeze ubuntu onto this old machine though. it belongs to a friend of mine, and she thought ubuntu looked cool on my other machine06:53
apersonUmm it's a HP media center, not sure what model.06:53
malnilionaperson, unless you manually partitioned your hard drive (shrunk the vista partition and installed ubuntu on a new partition you created), you're data's gone from everything but something a data recovery service could recover06:53
musikgoatpresumptious85: did you register?  it would be easier to follow along by PM06:53
mysteriosois there a way to save all pref. and internet bookmarks and EVERYTHING on a cd?  i already have aptoncd.06:53

paltemalteol_dude67: just trying to find some sort of requirements page for xubuntu .. something that tells you the recommended amount of ram etc. you wouldn't happen to know about a such page?06:54
