R1cochethow do i back up a dvd to x264?02:42
CarlFKhow much disk does xu need?03:11
CarlFKI have a 3g drive - hoping it will fit03:12
R1cocheti dont think so, but i installed from live cd03:13
R1cochetbesides it needs a swap partition i believe03:13
CarlFKgood point03:14
R1cochetagain im not sure03:15
gaurdroit shouldn't NEED a swap partition only it will be terribly unstable when it runs out of memory.  i'm not sure how much room it requires (google is your friend) but perhaps puppy linux or damn small linux might be better suited03:17
CarlFKall I really need is x and build-essential - i can install just u-standard and then apt-get the other stuff03:18

owen1xsane does not recognize my canon scanner (usb, new model) any idea? btw, i installed libsane-extras03:58
CarlFKowen1: did you run xsane from the command prompt?03:58
CarlFKsomewhere I will see "can't find firmware file" - my hack is to plug the scanner into a xp box which uploads the firmware03:59
owen1CarlFK: no. let me try04:00
owen1CarlFK: i just run xsane and got 'no device detected'04:01
CarlFKcarl@dell29:~$ scanimage -L04:02
CarlFKdevice `snapscan:libusb:002:004' is a Acer FlatbedScanner23 flatbed scanner04:02
CarlFKtry that04:03

CarlFKBus 002 Device 004: ID 04a5:20b0 Acer Peripherals Inc. (now BenQ Corp.) S2W 3300U/4300U04:03
owen1CarlFK: No scanners were identified.04:04
CarlFKsee the device in lsusb?04:04
owen1CarlFK: not sure what lsusb is. it's only one usb, no need for power.04:05
owen1CarlFK: canon canoscan lide 20004:05
owen1CarlFK: any clue?04:14
owen1CarlFK: it's a new model. i hope i'll find a way to use it.. thanks04:16
owen1CarlFK: lsusb returns: Bus 005 Device 011: ID 04a9:1905 Canon, Inc.04:17
CarlFKgood.  sometimes I plug things in and they arn't seen there, so I unplug /plug and they show up04:17
owen1CarlFK: but scanimage -L can't find any scanners04:18
CarlFKman scanimage "The list is not complete since some devices may be        available, but are not listed in any of the configuration files  (which        are  typically  stored in directory /etc/sane.d)04:20
owen1CarlFK: i am not sure i understand what u just said, i tried reading the man page but couldn't see anything important.04:25
CarlFKowen1: total longshot here...04:29
CarlFK echo "usb 0x04a9 0x1905">/etc/sane.d/canonlide200.conf04:31
CarlFKIll let you figure out how to do the permissions04:31
owen1btw, i just run sane-find-scanner and it found it. what does it mean?04:32
owen1CarlFK: bash: /etc/sane.d/canonlide200.conf: Permission denied04:33
CarlFKIll let you figure out how to do the permissions04:34
owen1chmod 777 on this file?04:34
CarlFKif sane-find-scanner found it, then I guess there is something that knows it is a scanner, so not sure you need it04:35
CarlFKi would do  sudo vim /etc/sane.d/canonlide200.conf04:35
owen1CarlFK: i just went to the /etc/sane.d folde and i don't see canonlide200 file ..04:37
CarlFKwhat is the #media-u channel?04:37
CarlFKcreate it04:37
owen1CarlFK: maybe it's for ubuntu media edition?04:37
CarlFKecho foo>bar.txt creates bar.txt04:37
CarlFKyeah - what is the name of the channel?04:38
owen1CarlFK: don't know, i can look for it. 1 sec04:39
CarlFKwait... -studio is what I was thinking04:41
owen1ohhh, ok04:42
owen1CarlFK: ok, i created a new file - canonlide200.conf04:43
R1cochetis there a program like image grabber for linux?04:43
R1cocheti need to make contact sheets of movies04:44
CarlFKR1cochet: grab from where?04:44
R1cochetfrom a video file04:45
owen1CarlFK: what should i do now (after i have this nes file)?04:45
owen1CarlFK: nes=mew04:45
CarlFKR1cochet: i think cinelerra - I have done it about 6 months ago, forget exactly how04:47
CarlFKowen1: scanimage -L04:47
owen1CarlFK: the same message - no scanners identified.  do u need to give permissions to the new file?04:48
CarlFKit should match the usb device with what is in that file.  no clue how that makes it work, jsut folloing what I saw in man scanimage04:48
R1cochetim not finding this in synaptic04:48
R1cochetcould it be a diff name?04:48
CarlFKR1cochet: use this repo: deb http://cp600:3142/akirad.cinelerra.org/ akirad-hardy main04:49

CarlFKdeb http://akirad.cinelerra.org/ akirad-hardy main04:49
R1cochetcarlFK: Thank ¥ou04:56
owen1CarlFK: any idea what can i do now?04:57
CarlFKowen1: no clue - sorry04:59
CarlFKowen1: I wouldn't give up hope - google sane-find-scanner and see what you should do next04:59
owen1CarlFK: np. thanks for all the help.05:00
CarlFKR1cochet: cin is probably not what you want05:19
CarlFKit has nice controls for moving foward/back, but no quick 'save as' .. from #cin.... (11:15:54 PM) cehteh: render that single frame or a jpeg sequnece .. should work well05:20

R1cochetwill do08:35
R1cochetok its there now what?08:37
nikolayou can also use synaptic package manager and with search option find and install software in repositories08:46
nikolaalternatively you could download *.deb for your platform/distribution version and install it with dubleclick on *.deb08:46
nikolaIf package/program you want is newer version and is present in repository of newer xubuntu release then you use, you can try to compile package yourself08:51
nikolaIf you are compiling package yurself use commands sudo apt-get build-dep _package_08:51
R1cochethow do i log in as root?08:52
nikolaand install documentation for build with sudo apt-get install debian-reference08:53
R1cochetok when i open synaptic and it asks for pass, thats the same as root pass right?08:54

TheOneBlackMagehello, I was hoping someone might be able to give me some advice on troubleshooting a network problem17:46
TheOneBlackMageMy Xubuntu maching on 8.04 (Kernel  2.6.24-19-generic) when I'm doing a lot of file transfer, the networking stops working.  I can ping machines on the same subnet, but nothing external.  I don't believe the gateway is accessible either.  If i run /etc/init.d/networking restart, it starts working again.  I've checked /var/log/messages, and can't see any errors.  Is there a way to turn on more logging?17:47
Odd-rationalecan you describe it?17:47
Odd-rationaleyou might want to try the main #ubuntu channel for that one...17:48
TheOneBlackMageok thanks17:48
TheOneBlackMageit did sound more generic, but I am running XFCE17:48
Odd-rationaleit's just another way to say, "I don't know" :P17:49
TheOneBlackMageno worries, i'm stumped myself17:49

cody-somervilleDo you have an nvidia card?19:14
nparafecody-somerville i do if i am the one who you refer19:17
cody-somervillewell, you can use the nvidia-settings tool19:17
cody-somervillealthough, you'll probably have to hack the xorg.conf file afterwards, lol19:17
cody-somervilleand it has to run as root to save the settings, lol19:18

vinnlAhtenus, well, you can then select "Properties" of your wireless device, and you can then uncheck "Enable roaming mode"19:54
cody-somervillealyawn, I'd visit #ubuntu-server for more detailed assistance19:54
vinnlAnd then configure it there and see if it'll work there... Or is that what you already did?19:55
