homebrewciderread somewhere to get my walkman mounted to use pmount, worked okay but every time i attached it, it got mounted in another directory in /media. Now i have numerous folders there, sdc1 through to sdj1, all with a created by pmount document in it01:03
zoredacheI don't know anything about pmount, but the obvious question is.  Are you unmounting things correctly?01:07
homebrewciderthought I did, this happened yesterday, but doing the umount command says nothing is mounted01:09
homebrewciderok, I just did it again, it seems to have started from sdc1 again, instead of tacking it on the end01:14
homebrewciderand making it sdk101:14
homebrewciderit seems i wasn't unmounting it01:14
homebrewciderbecause i unmounted it then, reattached and it was sdc1 again01:15
homebrewciderok, so my bad BUT01:15
homebrewciderhow do I get rid of these redundant entries?01:15
homebrewciderand how can I get this to automount? In Xubuntu 7.10 it used to mount automatically, however, in Xubuntu 8.04 it doesn't01:21
cody-somervilleHello Folks :)01:24
homebrewciderhow do I get rid of these redundant entries? rmdir does nothing02:05
charlie-tca_homebrewcider: I don't use pmount, it is not on my system, but can you use rm -R or sudo rm -R to remove those?02:19
homebrewciderrm -R  ???02:20
charlie-tca_man rm; removes directories and files under that directory02:21
homebrewcidersounds dangerous02:23
hadsIt can be.02:23
charlie-tca_It can be. Should be able to use the same syntax as rmdir, though.02:23
hadsYou can `rm -ri` which will prompt you on every file.02:24
hadsIf you are using globing (e.g. rm -r foo*) then trying with ls -l foo* first is good assurance that you're getting the right target.02:25

giacomo_hey folks, quick linux newbie question: from Terminal, how do I edit xorg.conf with admin priveleges?03:20
cody-somervillegiacomo_, append sudo to your command03:20
cody-somervilleso: sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf03:20
cody-somervillerunning the following will auto-generate it for you: sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg -phigh03:21
giacomo_thanks, I didn't know what the default editor was for xubuntu!03:21
zoredachevi is available too if you like that better03:22
giacomo_I'll try both, thanks03:23
zoredacheif you have never used either before use nano...  Vi has an insanely steep learning curve03:23
giacomo_how do I save changes in vi?03:25
zoredacheget into command mode then send a ':w'03:26
giacomo_k, I'm going to use nano afterall. how are changes saved with nano? in 'command' mode?03:27
gaurdrofor nano save is ctr-x03:28
gaurdroand there's no command modee03:28
giacomo_great thanks a ton guys03:28

holyguyverHello I have for some reason never been able to get Audacity nor any recording software to work on my computer in Ubuntu, so it must be a driver problem, yet my soundcard works in Ubuntu as I am able to listen to music. So is there some form of salution?09:00
ablomenholyguyver, you have to set the drivers in audacity by hand, or at least it used to be that way09:04
ablomenso you have to just do some trail and error with the configuration09:05
holyguyverI have tried that, it hasn't seemed to change anything, but I am not talking about audacity09:05
ablomenoh srry just your sound input device09:06
ablomencant help you with that09:06

Odd-rationalerockyrock: one way would be to open your file-manager (thunar) and then go to View --> show hidden files (or press ctrl+h) then select the .config folder and rename it.13:09
Odd-rationaleor you can execute "mv -r ~/.config ~/.config.bak"13:09
rockyrockwhere can i find the config folder???13:10
rockyrockin wich directory?13:10
Odd-rationalein your home dir13:11
Odd-rationale~ or /home/<your_username>13:11

zoredachehrm... that is an interesting question.  But I don't know the answer.  You might see if glxinfo tells you anything22:04
