ubotuAskarii: Ubuntu can be installed in a lot of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall. Don't want to use a CD? Try http://tinyurl.com/3exghs - See also !automate00:02
zoredacheI guess it depends on how you define 'extra'.  I think the who command will show you list of every username that is consuming a TTY00:02

cody-somervillehmm... it seems that enabled sub-pixel hinting fixes the weird font in Xubuntu.00:11
TheSheepcody-somerville: what kind of weird font?00:14
cody-somervilleLike, it is all smushed together.00:15
cody-somervilleBut enabling sub-pixel hinting makes the font clear and sharp.00:15

kebhmm i wonder if there is a text mode install04:34
SubOnethis is the text mode install lol04:34
SubOneis there another kernel on the cd i can try?04:35
kebthere may be a bug in the installation related to low memory. did you check the forums?04:35
SubOnein the livecd? theres supposed to be a certain amount of memory for the live cd to run i forget what it is... sec04:36
kebdunno about kernels04:36
SubOne128mb ram for livecd, but i think =>1mb of it is used for shared video, lol04:37
SubOneis there a better recommended distro for 128/127mb?04:37
kebi got fluxbuntu 7.10rc working in 64MB04:38
SubOnei didnt know there was a fluxbuntu lemme search...04:38

kebfluxbuntu seems to be bottlenecked a bit04:39
SubOneyeah its a compaq04:39
SubOnebottlenecked where?04:40
kebin terms of development04:40
kebStroganoff has made a script that installs xubuntu on low memory machines too, you can find it in the forums i think04:41
SubOnevidd: you have info on compatability issues with Xubuntu and HP machines? I have Ubuntu installed on my HP laptop04:43

selig5 5-6+04:49
SubOneim still not getting it to work :p04:49
SubOneand i've still had no luck getting *buntu on a flash drive04:50
SubOneWhat I don't understand is why the kernel would load the first time i tried but then reboot every other time04:51
kebis the fan running loud?04:52
viddSubOne, i just have an hp pavilion that i had to do it with04:53
SubOnekeb: no04:53
SubOnekeb: i dont see how it would be an overheating issue Windows runs fine04:53
kebwindows underclocks the system if it is a hot laptop04:54
SubOneits a desktop04:54
kebdoes anything else run on that system now? maybe it got zapped with a static charge04:55
kebsomething other than memtest ;)04:55
SubOneno just windows xp... previously windows 98... memtest seems to run fine, but the other options reboot (every option that needs to load a kernel)04:56
SubOnei even tried acpi=off AND pci=noacpi together because F1 mentioned both, but still reboots like halfway through kernel load04:57
kebso it loads some stuff?04:57
kebwhat is the last message on the screen04:58
viddSubOne, just one or the other...not both04:58
viddand drop the pci-04:58
viddand drop the pci=04:58

viddone then the other05:02
SubOnekeb: it says Loading Linux Kernel then gets to an arbitrary amount of loading on the progress bar and reboots05:02
SubOnevidd: i did that but i'll do it again05:02
SubOneoh apci05:02
SubOnenot acpi?05:03
kebthere is no such thing as apci05:03
SubOnei thought so :p05:03

vidddidnt i say b4 i was tired?05:05
kebSubOne is your hard disk full?05:09
kebhmm. noapic is a different option entirely from acpi=off05:22
kebone is about interrupt controllers and the other is power management05:22
viddthe power management is what he wants05:23
viddotherwise, he might want to check to see if his mobo has antivirus protection (protects the master boot record)05:24

DartrunnerHello, I have Xubuntu 7.10 installed on a Compaq Armada 7400. I am having a problem with opening a terminal, I keep getting booted back to the login screen.18:14
=== danielm_ is now known as danielm
Damionso I'm using an ISO that has a hash validated on the ubuntu website18:20
Damionbut as SOON AS I MOUNT IT the hash changes to something different18:20
Damionam I maybe hashing the wrong file?18:21
Damionhashing the .iso gives me a md5sum that starts with 877ae9, and this is the correct one as per the ubuntu site18:21
Damionwhen I mount that ISO and run a md5sum check on :\md5sum.txt18:22
Damionit gives me a hash that starts with 96ca4218:23
DartrunnerOne is a hash of the iso file and the other is a hash of that text file18:24
Damionso if the hash of md5sum.txt isn't a valid sum of the CD18:25
Damionhow do you check the cd once you've burned it?18:25
Dartrunnerthe hash IN the text file should match the hash OF the iso18:25
DartrunnerI've never tried, don't know if there is a way to hash the whole CD18:26
Damionwhich hash in the text file?18:26
Dartrunnerif you open the md5sum.txt file that should contain the hash of a good iso.18:28
DartrunnerHashing is normaly used to ensure that the iso file you downloaded is good18:29
Damionso how do you check that the cd is good after burning?\18:29
DartrunnerI'm not sure, I have never tried, some distros have a check in the boot menu18:30
DartrunnerJust checked and Xubuntu 7.10 has an option of "Check CD for defects" in the boot menu18:34
DartrunnerI have Xubuntu 7.10 installed on a Compaq Armada 7400. I am having a problem with opening a terminal, I keep getting booted back to the login screen. Everything else seems to be working fine.18:38

Stroganoffi'll be back in 20 minutes if you have any questions regarding my easy to use install script18:44

Stroganoffonly the xfce terminal should be affected by your bug18:47
DartrunnerStroganoff, could I bug you for a little more help?19:03
StroganoffDartrunner shoot19:07
DartrunnerThe reason I was trying to get a terminal was because the sound wasn't working19:08
DartrunnerI found a post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=4690891#post4690891 that had a little about it19:08
DartrunnerI installed the linux-backports-modules-generic with apt-get, but now what do I do?19:09
DartrunnerI am just learning linux, and picked up this laptop for free, so trying to make it work19:10
Dartrunnerand changing the depth to 16 also worked, thanks19:12
StroganoffDartrunner: try installing this: http://www.4front-tech.com/release/oss-linux_v4.0-1015_i386.deb19:16

Dartrunnernot sure what "run in terminal:lspci" means19:20

Stroganoff"lspci" is a command19:21
Stroganoffrather a cli tool19:21
Dartrunnerkk  : )19:21
Dartrunnerdoesn't show a soundcard19:23
Dartrunnershould I just start over now, if your setup will run faster19:24
Stroganoffhow much ram have you got?19:24
Stroganoffok but its still considerably faster :D19:24
Stroganoffxubuntu boots up to 80mb usage, my script to 25-40 (depends on chosen bootup services)19:25
Dartrunnersimilar look and feel?19:26
Stroganoffi wouldn't hope it fixes your sound though. maybe the onboard soundchip is disabled in bios? :D19:26
DartrunnerI used a suse live CD and the sound worked, but it was dog slow19:26
Stroganoffwell you see the screenshots, dartrunner. the desktop and filemanager are from ubuntu. the panel might not have that many fancy plugins as xfce does, but its much faster and you can use the WINKEY to open the menu :D19:27
Dartrunnerno winkey on this old thing   lol19:27
Dartrunnerthe next test is my wireless card19:28
StroganoffDartrunner see this thread for sound: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=11449319:31
DartrunnerWell I'll give it a try, downloading the Ubuntu Alternate ISO now19:32
Stroganoffwhat about your wireless?19:36
v0lksmanhey all! quick and likely easy question: how do I move a panel config from one user to another? basically I have a panel design I want all new users on my system to get by default19:37
v0lksmanI'd prefer to copy my main panel config to a central location that xfce will use when creating a new users desktop19:37
Dartrunnerit doesn't work, but I haven't started looking at that yet, just tackling one thing at a time19:37
Stroganoffv0lksman you panel config is somewhere i ~/.config/19:39
Stroganoffcopy it to /usr/share/xfce or something19:39
Stroganoffuse tab completion to find out the exact locations19:39
v0lksmanyeah.....config/xfce4/panels  however simply copying that to another users profile doesn't work....the default panel still shows when I log in as that user....19:40
MidtronicHowdy -- I just installed Xubuntu hardy, and I love the background image that's used for the installer.. I can't find it on the CD, though.  Any idea where I might find it?19:40
Stroganoffv0lksman might be .config/mcs-settings or something like this19:40
Stroganoffcopy MOAR ;)19:40
v0lksmanhehehe...I tried copying the entire .config from one user to another...still no fly....doesn't make sense though...they are simple xml files and they don't reference folder locations at all....19:42
Stroganoffhave you chown'd them?19:44
Stroganoffchown -R newuser:newuser /home/newuser/.config19:45
v0lksmanyep...no difference19:45
v0lksmanI mean ideally I want to edit the "default" panel so that when xfce creates the .config structure it includes my changes....but can't find anything of the sort....19:46
Stroganoffyou'd have to use /usr/share/xfce4 for that (better use /usr/local/share)19:47
Stroganoffbut I don't get why its not working for you the way you tried19:47
v0lksmanif I use /usr/share/xfce4 do I just drop my panels.xml and all the launcher.*.xml files in there or does it require a special directory?19:57
Stroganoffa special directory19:58
Stroganoffscrap that, it is in /etc/xdg/xfce4/19:59
Stroganoffi dont use xfce myself so i just guess sometimes :D19:59
v0lksmanhahaha...good place to hang out then!  :)20:00

redwhitewaldoi downloaded the, um, ubuntu-extra-codecs or soemthing like that.20:05

redwhitewaldoinstalling w32codecs didn't help20:14

v0lksmanthis is a divx or xvid file you are trying to play right?20:15

v0lksmanahhh....you need to make sure that the plugin for firefox has been loaded for a mediaplayer that has access to that codec...I think mplayer has a ff plugin20:17
redwhitewaldov0lksman: but i'm saving the file to desktop. and totem (standalone. not plugin) is playing the file20:17
v0lksmanyeah....its the plugin that is failing to play it....I know I've messed with that before...can't remember the fix off hand though....20:18
v0lksmanI'm pretty sure you either need the gstreamer plugin or mplayer....one of the two will fix it....20:18
redwhitewaldov0lksman: we seem to be not understanding each other. It is NOT a plugin.20:18
redwhitewaldoNOT a plugin20:18
redwhitewaldofirefox is NOT playing the file.20:19

v0lksmanlinuturk: delete ~/.config/xfce420:19
Linuturkso, that's controlled in /etc/skel ?20:20
v0lksmannot sure...that's why I'm here...hahaha...but the .config structure holds your settings20:20
v0lksmanredwhitewaldo: not sure then....the codecs should have made it work....I can only suggest trying VLC or mplayer....see if they do the same thing (they use different codecs)20:21
Stroganoffredwhitewaldo what he meant is that totem uses distinguished backends for decoding the movie. either gstreamer or xine.20:21
Stroganoffyou can try mplayer (standalone) or vlc, they have their own backends20:21
redwhitewaldook. i 'll try vlc20:22
redwhitewaldoi do prefer totem to do everything, though20:22
Stroganoffi prefer neither for none is able to place .srt subtitles below the 16:9 frame without some displacing voodoo20:24

Stroganoffyou run: ls22:59
Stroganoffls shows files/folders in your current destination22:59
Stroganoffok its working now23:01
Dartrunnerya I got the basic ls figured out   lol  not much more, also learned how to use top to find services to shutdown on a server I had to run a radio station from23:01
Stroganoffyou dont use top to shut down services23:02
Dartrunnerand the kill23:02
Dartrunnerto find the pid23:02
Stroganoffyou use: sudo /etc/init.d/servicename stop23:02
Stroganoffthats the proper way23:02
Stroganoffyou can kill programs with: killall processname23:02
Stroganoffexamples: sudo /etc/init.d/samba stop23:02
Stroganoffkillall Thunar23:02
Dartrunnerkill seemed to work most of the time lol  if it didn't I just rebooted  lol23:02
Dartrunnerhopefully I will learn the right way now23:04
n-iCehello any disk partition software??23:13
Stroganoffn-iCe: sudo apt-get install gparted23:13
Stroganoffthere is a livecd with gparted (and ntfs support) as well23:14
Dartrunnerso should I give it another try?23:15
Stroganoffyes Dartrunner23:16
n-iCeStroganoff,  ok, I cannot create a new partition, why?23:17
Stroganoffno available space?23:17
n-iCeext3 has 33GB free23:18
n-iCeI just can't selecte partition >> new23:18
n-iCeis like blocked23:18
skarfaceis there a setting somewhere for default browser in xfce?23:21
Stroganoffn-iCe ext3 is a partition23:22
Stroganoffyou cant create a partition INSIDE another partition23:22
Stroganoffyou have to resize the first partition before creating a new one.23:22
n-iCeI wan't to create a new one, to install windows, how?23:22
n-iCeI just can't select create a new partition23:22
Stroganoffyou should have been able to figure that out seeing that there is a resize button..23:22
n-iCeI can't select it either23:23
n-iCehas a lock23:23
Stroganoffyou cant resize the partition you are running from23:25
Stroganoffuse the gparted livecd for that23:25
Stroganoffits not voodoo magic like partition magic but it works23:25
Stroganoffby the way: windows will disable you from booting to ubuntu. you have to recover Grub after windows installation. print out this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows23:27
aubadeIs there a reason for Thunar not to co-operate with fuse mount points or has that gone unresolved?23:28
Stroganoffgenerally it works for me, aubade23:29
Stroganoffat least fusesmb23:29
aubadeHappens to do it with fuseiso, haven't tried custom actions with any other modules.23:30
aubadeLooks as though it's going to open the directory then slings back to the parent after displaying the contents, almost as if it's teasing me.23:31
Stroganoffaubade i just mounted an UDF iso with fuseiso and thunar is able to browse23:40
Stroganofffuseiso example.iso /media/iso/example.iso/ -o allow_root23:40
aubadeWhy the '-o allow_root'?23:41
DartrunnerStroganoff, I keep getting E:Couldn't find package swiftfox-IceWM23:43
DartrunnerSomething horrible happened. Press Return to try again.23:44
Stroganoffcrap :D23:44
Stroganoffi'm sorry again23:44
DartrunnerI hit return and get the same error again23:44
Dartrunnerhow do I get out of it?23:45
