craigbass1976Perhaps this isxfce, maybe OOo...  Why are my menu fonts so large in OOo?  They weren't in regular ubuntu, and I can't see where to change it.02:44
juanantonioHello. There someone?02:50
craigbass1976juanantonio, you stuck on something?02:51
juanantonioStuck? No, not at all, hehehe. Thing is, I have Kubuntu 8.04 customized to me02:52
juanantoniobut thing is, it could be faster when I turn on the PC just to download. So I installed LXDE desktop02:53
juanantonioand today, I have installed Xubuntu desktop from the official repos, I'm in a Xfce session now02:53
juanantonioMy question is: have I updated something in the PC or just the environment and not only the desktop as with LXDE?02:54
juanantonioI mean kernel, inner version and so on02:55
juanantonioCan anyone tell me something about that?02:59

=== jaYVas_707 is now known as baYVas_707
baYVas_707I need help with a compatibility issue...any takers??06:30
* ball hides behind the sofa06:31
baYVas_707I have a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5899 with an Atheros internal wireless adapter and xubuntu doesn't seem to recognize it.06:32
* baYVas_707 wants to point out that it is indeed a laptop.06:32
baYVas_707I'm using the laptop right now to talk to you all, but I had to plug in a dongle.06:34
ThePubinteresting, idk how xubuntu tracks to ubuntu proper but I just did an 8.04 install and upgrade to 8.10 with my atheros-based card working out-of-box.  not that this is much help, I really wouldn't know where to begin tbh :)06:35
baYVas_707ok...well, that definetely does not help me. Anybody have any suggestions?06:36
xubuserHello People.06:37
baYVas_707I'm looking at a web page right now that tells me how to fix it, but I'm not that familiar with the terminal.06:37
xubusergot an S-video issue. Does anybody have any experience? How do I enable the output. I am using xrandr -q and it shows S-video, VGA-0 and DVI-0 as disconnected. I have connected the cable.06:38
ThePubthe terminal is as easy as typing ;)06:38
baYVas_707then explain to me step-by-step how to work the following:06:39
baYVas_707#! /bin/bash06:39
baYVas_707mkdir /etc/lib/wireless/06:39
baYVas_707cd /etc/lib/wireless/06:39
baYVas_707apt-get install build-essential06:39
baYVas_707wget http://snapshots.madwifi.org/special/madwifi-ng-r3366+ar5007.tar.gz06:39
xubuserhow do I enable the the s-video to the TV? I am not having any success. Booting off of the Ubuntu CD worked just fine. But my xubuntu installation didn't allow me to do xrandr --output VGA-006:39
baYVas_707tar xfz madwifi-ng-r3366+ar5007.tar.gz06:39
baYVas_707cd madwifi-ng-r3366+ar500706:39
baYVas_707make install06:39
baYVas_707modprobe ath_pci06:39
baYVas_707so...ThePub , what's your answer??06:45
ThePubto what?06:47
baYVas_707here, I'll paste it again...06:47
baYVas_707then explain to me step-by-step how to work the following:06:48
ThePubyou should be using pastebin or some other service06:48
baYVas_707#! /bin/bash06:48
baYVas_707mkdir /etc/lib/wireless/06:48
baYVas_707cd /etc/lib/wireless/06:48
baYVas_707apt-get install build-essential06:48
baYVas_707wget http://snapshots.madwifi.org/special/madwifi-ng-r3366+ar5007.tar.gz06:48
baYVas_707tar xfz madwifi-ng-r3366+ar5007.tar.gz06:48
baYVas_707cd madwifi-ng-r3366+ar500706:48
baYVas_707make install06:48
baYVas_707modprobe ath_pci06:48
ThePublooks like a bash script to issue a set of commands.06:49
baYVas_707Are you actually trying to help me or what?06:49
ThePubso do you have the ath modules installed?06:49
baYVas_707what are they?06:50
ThePubif you have a terminal open, you can do this:  cat /proc/modules| grep ^ath06:50
baYVas_707with the dividing bar connected to the word "modules"?06:51
ThePubor add a space, it doesn't matter.06:51
ThePuband it's referred to as a pipe, just for future reference.  we're taking the information spewed from cat and filtering it through grep.06:51
baYVas_707it didn't do anything.06:52
ThePubcould just try directly loadng them to see if they're there.  i.e:  sudo modprobe ath_pci06:54
ThePubI'm really surprised they're no there though06:54
baYVas_707after i typed in my password, again, nothing happened.06:55
ThePubthat's actually good, try the last command now :)06:55
baYVas_707vasman118@vasman118-xubuntu:~$ cat /proc/modules | grep ^ath06:56
baYVas_707ath_pci 99096 0 - Live 0xf916100006:56
baYVas_707ath_hal 198864 1 ath_pci, Live 0xf961a000 (P)06:56
ThePubso the modules are there, they're just not automatically loading.  iirc, ath_pci is the main driver to run atheros using the madwifi driver.  although I'll be honest, it's been over 2 years since I've tinkered with that stuff, and it wasn't even on a debian machine.06:57
ThePububunutu, xubunutu, whatever.. all the same in the end :)06:57
ThePubbaYVas_707: so what you need now is someone to step you through how to get that stuff loading at startup06:58
baYVas_707ok...ya think there's anyone in this channel with such know-how?06:59
ThePubI wouldn't know :)  Joined not too long before you to just hang out and see what got chatted about.  May have a better chance in #ubuntu.07:00
ThePubat least it's more active.  have you checked the xubuntu and ubuntu wiki/forumn?07:00
baYVas_707yeah, but I don't have the patience to wait around for replies :-(07:01
ThePubbaYVas_707: out of curiousity, what does the command iwconfig say?07:01
baYVas_707lemme check...07:02
ThePubthat's usually not a compatible character trait for this stuff, heh.07:02
ThePubshould have listigns like "lo", maybe some "ethX" enteries, is there an "ath0"?07:04
baYVas_707I know, I'm getting more and more patient these days though...I'll be on the right level for it soon enough. Eh, ok here's what the result of iwconfig was:07:04
baYVas_707vasman118@vasman118-xubuntu:~$ iwconfig07:04

ThePubthat's good :)  so really it's just a matter of getting those modules to load at startup.07:05
baYVas_707Keep in mind I am currently using my usb dongle to talk to you right now.07:05
ThePubidk how xubuntu does network configuration07:07
ThePubbut it may be as easy as adding ath_pci to /etc/modules07:07
ThePubthere are instructions in the file on how to use it.07:07
baYVas_707which file?07:08
baYVas_707oh, ok.07:08
ThePubI would take this as the worst grade advice since I'm just stabbing in the dark :)07:09
baYVas_707that's alright. I appreciate the help thus far. :007:10

peabodyI've just installed eeexubuntu on my eee pc 1000 netbook, and after the default install, I have no network adapters listed under ifconfig13:16
peabodyI don't even know how to start troubleshooting that13:16
peabodyI have 2 entries in /etc/network/interfaces : auto lo, and iface lo inet loopback13:20
nikolamguyiom, peabody TRY: http://www.eeeuser.com/13:21
peabodyyeah I've gone over the wiki13:21
peabodythere's nothing on it13:21
nikolamAlso take care that automated scripts mentioned there mostly work with 70113:21
peabodyI don't know why mine hates me13:21
nikolampeabody, try forum, also13:22
nikolamI am with 701, I think that modules for it are even included in 8.10.13:22
nikolamalso I think there is even precompiled kernel for eee`s but I don`t know about separate 90x and 1000x versions13:23
nikolamAlso I think it is always better to use normal updates and to refresh drivers yourself13:23
peabodyyeah, so I want to isntall eeebuntu13:33
peabodyeeexubuntu is an old distro for the original eeepcs and eeebuntu is based on 8.1013:33
peabodyThe forums search sucked but I managed to find references to the other builds on array.org13:34
peabodywhich deals with the eee specific kernel13:34
nikolamI use normal xubuntu with drivers installed. I have eee 701 4G13:42
nikolamalso one can use eeebuntu with custom kernel and install xfce on it and get the same thing13:43
nikolambut I want to keep disk usage low and I use xubuntu default /Hardy with that script and no custom kernel13:43

sinboxnope sorry16:16
likemindeadWhat do you recommend for a good Linux-friendly printer/scanner? Is HP my best bet?17:10
likemindeadI don't need anything too fancy. Just to print black and white and scan papers occasionally.17:11
sinboxI think linux support is pretty good with HP from what I read17:15
likemindeadThought so. Had an Epson that was no bueno. Thanks.17:16
sinboxif you search you can probably get it to work, I managed to find drivers for my canon after some searching17:18
likemindeadYeah, I found a driver, but only to print--no scan. Printer sucked anyways. Used too much ink.17:26

lufchi Ive just installed 8.04.1 alternate on an old Sony Laptop and the dsktop is like a 10" square in the middle of the screen. ANy idea how I get it bigger fullsize18:54
lufcwell not 10" but like its on a 10" monitor18:54
ThePubchecked your display settings?  (first place I'd check anyhow)  Settings -> Settings Manager -> Display18:57
lufcyes Ive got default, 800*600 and 640*480 (I presume default = 1024x768) none of them change the size of the actuak " screen"18:59
lufcif it was windows I'd be loking at the videoi card driver19:00
lufcno idea wher to start in xubuntu19:00
lufc(of course, this laptop screen worked pefectly in XP - if bloody slow!)19:01
ThePubso you have a square showing video which is smaller than the actual physical screen?19:01
ThePuband what type of laptop/vintage are we talking about?19:02
lufcsony vaio PCG-R600HEk Pentium III, 20GB HD, 12."1 XGA (1024*768) TFT Display19:03
thekingHow do you generate SSH keys?19:03
ThePublufc: apparently similar issues can happen in XP :) http://www.techsupportforum.com/microsoft-support/windows-xp-support/270612-sony-vaio-display-not-fullscreen-after-xp-install.html19:05
lufc:-) see he didnt get an answer :-(19:06
ThePubI won't have an answer for you, but here's an educated guess:  a) driver incompatibilities as you've already indicated; you're going to have to check to see if the xorg driver being used supports what you're running.  /etc/X11/xorg.conf has that information in the "Device" section, should be a Driver line.  b) default install is probably using xrandr and it's not detecing the full capabilities of the screen, so you'll probaby have to enter tha19:10
ThePubI wonder if this might be a good start though: http://www.damia.net/vaio/19:12
