xn00bHi all04:30
xn00bCan anybody direct me to some good tuts for setting up networking in xubuntu?04:33
dakunanyone here?04:45
xn00bThey do suggest patience in here, im waiting too :-)04:46
dakunoh, i wasnt being impatient, i was just trying to stur responses04:46
dakunumm, for xubuntu 8.10, will it have xfce 4.6.x on it?04:47
xn00bmission accomplished :-)04:47
xn00bdo you happen to know of tutorials for getting one's network up and running in xubuntu?04:47
xn00bit's not native in the Thunar file manager04:48
dakunumm, if you use samba you can just use the samba, i use smbmount and point it to ~/../share and mount the shared folders from the other computers to those folders. the only drawback i see is that when the other computer isnt connected it laggs the file manager04:49
dakuni havent figured out how the whole permissions thing work with passworded accounts04:50
xn00baha, ok.. thanks for the tip anyway04:50
dakunumm, for xubuntu 8.10, will it have xfce 4.6.x on it?04:50
xn00bi cannot answer that question unfortunatly04:51
dakunits kinda the only reason i want to update to intrepid04:51
xn00bok, I'm a complete newbie04:51
dakunall the package updates will work for hardy for another year after so i dont want to waste another disc04:52
xn00bjust went from ubuntu --> to xubuntu04:52
dakunwell im gonna stop using e17 for a while, wait for them to ad some stuff and then check it out again04:52
dakuni like xubuntu04:54
dakunless extra stuff that i dont use, granted that there is still stuff like that in there04:54
xn00bme to, it's much faster on the laptop Im using04:54
xn00bbut a major con with the lack of browsing ones network04:55
dakunyup, xfce 4.6 is supposed to be even faster04:55
dakunues samba04:55
xn00blike, for music, video etc04:55
dakunjust use the bookmark side bar04:55
xn00bok, the "server"  have is a Synology NAS04:55
xn00bit's does not run Samba04:56
xn00bbut I think it runs windows type of shares.04:56
dakunoh, your running a xubuntu server, not desktop04:56
xn00bno, I'm writing from a xubuntu laptop right now.. and want to gain access to my NAS (synology)04:57
xn00bon the network04:57
dakuni have no idea what a NAS synology is04:58
eirehac1network-attached storage04:58
xn00bsorry,   NAS (network area storage)   Synology is the brand04:58
xn00battached yes04:58
dakuni see04:58
eirehac1xn00b: do you have NFS enabled04:59
dakunhave you enabled nfs settings05:00
dakunbeat me too it05:00
eirehac1haha sorry bout that, ill be quiet. :/ heh05:00
xn00boh, probably now :-)05:00
dakunits ok, the more help the better05:00
xn00bexcellect.. thanks05:00
eirehac1haha good point05:01
xn00bI'm trying to get my linux chops together05:01
xn00bthanks dakun05:01
xn00bnfs vs. smb   who's the winner?05:01
dakunidk if that leads to it working but it might point in the right direction05:02
mconway88nfs! :D05:02
xn00bok mconway88 , is it because it is more transparent?05:02
xn00bsmall networks it should be ok i guess.  but larger ones with  security stuff then?...05:03
dakunpersonas addon for firefox05:06
dakunpretty cool05:06
xn00bwhat is it?05:06
dakunits a sorta themeing plugin only its kinda simplified but its still experimental05:06
dakunits still in the mozilla labs05:07

dakunagh, i cant do anything with gim05:10
XFCEntralyeahh as much as i like the fact its free over Photoshop, it can be a bit difficult05:11
dakuna bit?05:11
XFCEntralhaha may be an understatement yes05:11
dakuni havnt used it for hardly anything but a screenshot or 205:11
xn00bI had that dilemma too..  PS is what i've worked with for years05:12
XFCEntralyeah my girlfriend likes it but i find it wastes space05:12
dakunide rather go and download the .net and use pdn05:12
xn00bits too expensive05:12
dakunthe .net framework? expensive? did ms start charging for dowloads?05:13
xn00bno, Photoshop05:13
dakuni like inkscape best though05:14
dakun• There is no need for users to have separate home directories on every network machine. Home directories could be set up on the NFS server and made available throughout the network.05:19
dakunoh yeah, thats definitly better then smb05:19
xn00bI'm going to split,  thanks for the help05:22

ciapsadmHi, everybody08:34
ciapsadmI have a problem with Xubuntu,08:35
ciapsadmNot detect GPS08:36
ciapsadmI put the USB cable and I shoved in my GPS and nothing appears to Xubuntu to install or configure08:37
ciapsadmLed to the GPS on, but the computer does not detect anything08:39
TheSheepciapsadm: what program are you using to read from the gps?08:39
ciapsadmNot program08:41
ciapsadmI do not use GPS program in Xubuntu08:42
TheSheepciapsadm: then what do you need gps for?08:42
ciapsadmI want to get some music on it, as are the card in it08:44
XFCEntraldo you have a card reader?08:44
XFCEntralmaybe your GPS will let you manage the music and photos on your card on the computer, but that was probably meant for Windows, or Win and Mac. :(08:46
ciapsadmHow do you detect Xubuntu I connect the GPS to the computer?08:46
XFCEntralwhich company made your GPS unit?08:46
TheSheepciapsadm: you can try 'lsusb' in terminal and see if it's listed08:48
ciapsadmCompany is G P S08:48
TheSheepciapsadm: also dmesg may show you some messages related to it08:48
ciapsadmXFCEntral: The problem as not windoze not go08:51
ciapsadmTheSheep: I wrote in terminal lsusb not give me anything appears08:53

Waltman15I have a question.. Im hoping someone can answer.09:16
Waltman15Is anyone here at the moment?09:17
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely answer. :-)09:18
Waltman15Im sorry.. I was wondering if it is considered legal for me to distribute CDs with Xubuntu and Ubuntu burned on to them for the price I payed for the CD?09:18
TheSheepWaltman15: it depends on the licences of the software contined on the cd, but most of it is either GPL or BSD licence, and they permit it09:21
TheSheepWaltman15: actually, they permit you to charge any amount of money for it09:22
TheSheepWaltman15: note that I'm not a lawyer though09:22
Waltman15So if I do sell these CDs i should be in the clear legally?09:22
tapeHow I do this09:24
Waltman15I have to go to bed. Thanks TheSheep! I appreciate the elp!09:25
ciapsadm_I managed to follow, but do not have access to the disk (card)09:47
TheSheepciapsadm_: I don't know, maybe try googling for the model name of your device and 'ubuntu' or 'linux'09:52
ciapsadm_But I managed to follow;)09:54

kushalsejwalcan anybody help me :(18:49
viddkushalsejwal, can that system boot from normal livecd?18:50
kushalsejwalI havent burned the .iso yet I tried18:50
viddhow much ram?18:51
kushalsejwalvidd: xubuntu-8.04.1-desktop-i386 is what I downloaded from xubuntu site I hope its the correct live CD one18:51
viddif your system meets the minimal requirements, and is intel processor or AMD32 processor...should be the right image18:53
kushalsejwalvidd: I have ATI graphic card is that what creating the problem18:53
viddquite possible18:53
* vidd never uses the live cd....18:53
kushalsejwalyeah mine is 32 bit so I installed the i386 which is I gues st the right one18:53
viddits always more trouble thenm its worth18:54
kushalsejwalI do use live CD often but I thought to try Xubuntu this time I have always use only Ubuntu or kubuntu live CDs18:54
vidddo either of those run on that system?18:54
kushalsejwalyeah they do18:55
viddthen the issue is most likely the pendrive image isnt working correctly18:55
vidda proper live cd burn should be fine18:55
kushalsejwalvidd: actually I wanted to check it before wasting a CD that was the primary reason I tried it on pendrive but I guess I have to use a Cd for this18:56
viddthen make a testbox18:58
viddset up qemu18:58
viddthen install the iso onto the qemu18:59
kushalsejwalqemu? testbox?18:59
viddif it fails, the image is bad18:59
ubottuqemu is an emulator you can use to run another operating system - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsXPUnderQemuHowTo18:59
viddit will let you create a sort-off virtual machine on that system19:00
kushalsejwalokay so is it like virtual box/19:00
viddyou mount the iso as the cdrom for the qemu environment and install19:00
kushalsejwalokay I got it I would try it that way19:01
kushalsejwalso vidd you use xubuntu?19:01
kushalsejwalhow is it? as compared to ubuntu19:01
viddi prefer to install from the mini iso19:01
viddi prefer it19:01
viddthe mini iso is < 10 MB19:02
viddonly has the stuff get your network up and running....19:02
kushalsejwaloh minimal installtion I heard about it but dont konw what exactly it is would google about it19:03
viddand you can install any and all *buntu's with the one disk19:03
viddno...not minimal install19:03
viddnet install19:03
kushalsejwalok through internet19:03
kushalsejwallike we install packages thru it19:04
kushalsejwalnever tried it but sounds cool ;)19:04
viddand you can install xubuntu from it, cli-only from it, ubuntu from it, etc19:04
viddso which version you want? 7.04, 7.10, 8.04, 8.10?19:05
viddthey even have dapper19:06
viddkushalsejwal, which version?19:07
viddso i can post the link19:07
kushalsejwalI want 8.1019:07
viddthe file is "mini.iso19:08
kushalsejwalso just boot the pc from this and everything is done19:09
viddno...it will start an installer program19:10
Odd-rationalethe mini.iso downloadas all the packages from the internet19:11
viddyou configure it the way you want, all the packages get downloaded off the internet rather then from the disk19:11
Odd-rationaleso if you have slow internet connection, it might take a while... :P19:11
kushalsejwalokay I understud thanks buddy :)19:12
Odd-rationalethe alternative cd can do a cli install as well...19:12
Odd-rationalecommand line interface19:12
kushalsejwalOdd-rationale: I got cli with the desktop Live CD as well :(19:13

[ifrog]vidd, I installed 2.6.24 and it does not work.19:27
vidddid you reboot afterwords?19:28
[ifrog]vidd, actually i listened and upgrade to hardy which came with that kernel.19:28
[ifrog]Rebooted twice.19:28
[ifrog]vidd, How do you know if that kernel really supports the hardware, is there is list somewhere?19:29
viddnow that you are on the current release you should have an easier time getting that card to work19:29
[ifrog]vidd, how is that?19:30
[ifrog]I though you said the kernel supports it by default.19:30
viddi assumed you had instructions for getting the card to work and you needed acer-acpi to get it to work19:31
viddacer-acpi is fully integrated into the kernel19:31
[ifrog]I read online that with acer packages it works.19:31
viddwhat other acer packages are needed?19:32
[ifrog]But i still cant find that package in the hardy19:32

[ifrog]it actually did it automatically.19:35
viddthen its installed19:35
[ifrog]as i installed from the dvd.19:35
[ifrog]well iwconfig and the tray icon does not show it.19:36

* MalfermitaKodo needs some help troubleshooting a sound problem. I had it working out of the box, did some optimizations, I found in the ubuntu wiki for the Acer Aspire and now it does not work anymore... well, works like a buerocrat: you get no output even though everything seems to be fine21:01
viddhello Ben_Cs21:09
Ben_Csxubuntu comes with Transmission preinstalled. For some reason, Transmission downloads A LOT slower than Deluge. Any ideas why?21:09
Grey_LokiBen_Cs, perhaps a port forwarding issue?21:09
Grey_LokiHave you tried it with the same torrent?21:09
Ben_CsGrey_Loki: same port same torrent21:09
Grey_LokiMalfermitaKodo, obvious things first - while you were tweaking, you didn't accidentally turn down the sound either on your laptop, or within linux anywhere?21:09
viddwhat is the comand to install via apt-get to auto-include recommends?21:10
MalfermitaKodoGrey_Loki: I didn't... I checked alsamixer... and, well, I did reboot to use different kernelparameters, in case this is relevant21:12
Grey_LokiMalfermitaKodo, it could be - have you tried rebooting again and not giving the kernel parameters?21:12
MalfermitaKodonot yet... will do now21:13
MalfermitaKodohmmm elevator=noop should but interfere with sound but apparently does21:25
Grey_LokiThat gives you something to google with, at least - I don't know anything about acer laptops, and I only know a little about linux in general21:26
viddhello Linuxica21:36
LinuxicaI want to delete some files from a pendrive, using thunar, but I can't.21:37
Linuxicawhere I can configure that?21:37
viddin terminal, type "sudo thunar"21:37
viddthen you have god-rights to thunar21:38

LinuxicaI usually delete them from the terminal , con "rm"21:39
Linuxicabut i'd like to delete as user21:39
viddthen chown the pen drive to the user21:39
Linuxicaany time I use the pendrive?21:40
Linuxicasorry, you're very kind but i'd like to control the pendrive as my hard disk21:41
Linuxicado you know how I can?21:41
viddanything you write on it from that user is chowned to that user automatically21:41
viddsince the data was written elsewhere, it is chowned to a user that this computer doesnt know21:42
Linuxicayes bit it is owned by root group21:42
LinuxicaI delete the files then the files are there again!!21:42
viddbecause root owns everything not owned by another group21:43
viddwhat file structure is the pendrive using?21:43
Linuxicafat I suppose21:43
Linuxicafat 32 or 1621:43
Linuxicabut I added a hd with ext3 and it's the same21:44

LinuxicaI'm confused...21:46
viddso am i21:46
LinuxicaI don't understan very well the new fstab I used debian before.21:47
viddif the user can remove the file in terminal, then shift+del (bypassing the trash can) should work in thunar as well21:47
Linuxicaanother thing, the trash in the pendrive is a hidden archive21:48
LinuxicaIt happens with every usb unit.21:49
viddyeah....wich would indicate issues if you dont hold the [shift] key when you delete21:49
Linuxicade camera, de pendrive, and my ide new HD21:49

owen1how to make fnc+f7 (video out) work on vaio?22:08
viddowen1, one moment22:11
owen1vidd: are u talking to me (xrandr)22:17
viddowen1, yes22:18
owen1vidd: what about xrandr? i run it and it shows me my resolution.22:18
viddinstall it and the bios option works22:19
owen1vidd: i just ran it so i assume it's already installed.22:19
owen1vidd: what bios options? will i be able to do video out by changing somthing in the bios?22:20
viddFN+[something] is a bios-enabled function22:20
owen1vidd: how do i get to the bios? rebbot and 'f8' while rebooting?22:21
viddxrandr lets linux pass those commands to the bios so the bios does what it needs to22:21
owen1vidd: ok. i have xrandr. what is my next step?22:21
vidduse the fn+ functions22:22
viddthey should work22:22
owen1vidd: please elaborate...what is my next step? run xrandr or rebbot and going to bios?22:23
viddthere is no next step22:24
viddas long as xrandr is installed, they keys should work22:24
owen1vidd: the brightness works (fn+f5/fn+f6) but when i connect external tv and hit fn+f7 i don't see anything on the tv.22:25
viddis the tv set to recieve?22:26
owen1vidd: as soon as i connect my desktop to the tv, i can see the desktop on the tv. so i assume the problem is not the tv.22:27
viddthen your bios must need to enable that feature22:27
viddwell...i have to go home now22:28
owen1vidd: ok. thanks!22:28
viddi should be back on tommorrow22:28
owen1vidd: np. thanks a lot.22:28
owen1i can't find anything in the bios..i tried 'LCD Screen Expansion' but it didn't help22:43
