Odd-rationalekathryn: what exactly are you having troubles with your wireless? does it not connect? or not find any access points?00:04
JintoIt doesn't see the wireless card.00:04
S-i-Asrry the problem is still her00:05
S-i-Ai can't change the layout!!00:05
S-i-Aany idea?00:05
S-i-Ai mean keyboard layout00:05
Odd-rationaleS-i-A: i remember reading about some bug like that... i don't remember what was the fix...00:06
Odd-rationaleJinto: you mean it is not showing up in the network-manager applet?00:06
S-i-AOdd-rationale, which bug, is many many bug00:06
Odd-rationaleS-i-A: something about not being able to change keyboard layout in xfce...00:07
S-i-Ain launchpad00:07
JintoI'm completely new to linux, where would I find that?00:07
Odd-rationaleJinto: first. make sure that you have a notification area on your panel somewhere... then run "nm-applet"00:09
Odd-rationalekathryn: do you see the applet in the notifications area?00:12
JintoDefine 'notifications area'...00:12
Odd-rationaleJinto: be default. there should be a notifications area (aka system tray) next to you clock in th upper right corner. if not... right click panel, add to panel, and add notifications area...00:14
Odd-rationalekathryn: one more thing to try is to pastebin "iwlist scanning"00:14
S-i-Awhat is mean with XKBOPTIONS="lv3:ralt_switch"?00:15
S-i-Ais Alt to switch or alt+Ctrl?00:16
Aison`hello, can I install normal xubuntu on my eeepc 4g or do I have to use eeexubuntu?00:21
Aison`maybe all drivers are in normal xubuntu now00:21
Odd-rationalekathryn: do you have b43-fwcutter installed?00:21
Odd-rationalekathryn: and secondly, do what do you have in /lib/firmware ?00:24
kathryni do not, and in my attempt to install it says: http://paste.ubuntu.com/99318/00:24
Odd-rationalekathryn: ok. check lib firmware first...00:25
kathrynit says /lib/firmware is a directory00:25
Odd-rationalekathryn: yes it is...00:25
kathrynthats all it says00:25
Odd-rationalekathryn: try "ls -R /lib/firmware" (it might spit out a lot)00:26
Odd-rationaleok. first make sure that you have all apt process closed: update manager, synaptic, add/remove, apt-get, aptitiude, etc... then try "sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter"00:32
Odd-rationalekathryn: ^00:32
Odd-rationaleor do you still get the same error message?00:32
kathrynits updating right now...give me a few minutes00:33
Odd-rationaleJinto: btw, the networkmanager applet looks like this: http://projects.gnome.org/NetworkManager/images/wireless-at-tealuxe.png00:42
Odd-rationaleyou don't have one on your panel?00:42
kathrynwe might after it's done updating...00:43
=== britelite is now known as kathryn
Odd-rationalekathryn: ok. so the next thing i would try is to install b43-fwcutter. "sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter" if you have internet connection, select to set it up as well...00:54
JintoIt's working00:59
Odd-rationaleinternet and all?01:00

ThePubthat a guess?  :)  no, not there.  gnome has something like that.  startup and sessions doesn't seem to give you a configurable list, just says "save running applications" or something like.  which needless to say doesn't inspire much belief.02:01

illmortalnope.... basically before the reformat i had 2 partitions on this SATA drive.07:29
illmortal1 was 50gb for Linux the other was like 410gb for space07:30
illmortali decided to reformat the drive and use the full drive as a storage drive. So I deleted the partition (both were ext2) recreated the partition as ext2, and format to ext207:31

dayo_do gnome themes work on xubuntu? i'm trying to change my theme, but i can't seem to find any except for the ones at xfce-look.org, and those16:07
dayo_they're not what i'm looking for16:07
ThePubdepends on what you mean by "gnome themes".  gnome uses a different window manager so the metacity themes won't work on xfwm that I'm aware of.  icon and gtk+ themes though are not window manager-specific so there should be no issue.17:51
ThePubdayo_: didn't realize how much time had gone by :)17:52
robilei just installed xmms over synaptics but i cant find it in my start menu :o -> where should the  program be located? i dont find it in /usr/bin ]-:18:07
nitro2k01Not sure how linux organizes it files (I'm more into BSD) but try /usr/local18:10
nitro2k01/usr/local/bin even18:11
robilenitro2k01, thx ill take a look18:11
ThePubif you've installed xmms it should be listed in the package database.18:17
likemindeadRhythmbox, Banshee, Amarok, or _________ ? What do you prefer in Xubuntu?18:17
ThePubquickest way to tell from the commandline would probably be dpkg:  dpkg -l xmms18:17
ThePuband dpkg -L xmms would list the files and their locations18:17
ThePublikemindead: mpd, it works anywhere I am ;)18:18

The-Kernellol no problem18:20
sinboxOK I haven't tried xmms2 robile  so can't really help, I guess you'll have to RTFM on this, but same as mpd it's a demon and you need a frontend to tune into it if I read correctgly18:22

ron_ono, the command.19:44
ron_oI can type 'ctrl + f1'19:44
ron_oto 'f4' and it will work.19:44
ron_oI know that xfce is trying to be gui based. But sometimes a simple file is just plain easier to manipulate like in fluxbox.19:46
ThePubSettings -> Settings Manager -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts tab19:51
ThePubTo edit the default set you have to first click "Add" and name the changes.19:52
ThePubwell that's not what you want, sorry19:52
ThePubsame concept, but it's "Window Manager", then the "Keyboard" tab :)19:52
likemindead(I'm using Compiz, BTW...)19:56
ron_oThePub, I'm asking for the command. you can't do anything without a command. i know all that.20:17
ron_oin my shortcut keys file I see nothing suggesting the command to change desktops.20:17
sinboxadd one?20:18
ron_ono, chage desktops with shortcut key.20:19
ron_othere is one built in, but I'd like to change it to my own.20:19
ThePubunlike fluxbox, xfce actually has a good shortcut editor if you use it.  there's really no advantage to editing the file.20:19
ron_oThePub, I am.20:19
ron_owhat's the command for changing desktops. :/20:19
alienkidHi I just installed xubuntu and My external speakers aren't working20:20

charlie-tcajuanantonio: what version of Xubuntu are you using. Normally, right-click the panel and select "Add new item"21:11
juanantonioYes, but I can't see it21:12
juanantonioI use 8.04 and click that21:12
charlie-tcashould be volume control21:12
juanantonioYes, but I click and nothing happens21:14
charlie-tcaLooks like a speaker with a line along side it?21:14
juanantonioI can see up a door, time, transmission item, network and date21:14
charlie-tcaI believe that is a bug then21:15
charlie-tcaYou could report it in launchpad, if it is not already21:15
juanantonioI don't know, if I enter my nephew's session, I can see it ;)21:15
charlie-tcaIt may be conficting with another applet.21:16
j1mcjuanantonio: can you try adding the volume applet to the panel?21:16
juanantoniocharlie, but you know what, I have kubuntu and downloaded Xubuntu desktop, and you know it is not completely compatible, or i think so21:16
sinboxshouldn't really make that much difference as you only run one at a time though (or am I over-positive on this?)21:17
juanantonioI have dragged the item and now it is working, thank you21:17
alienkidHi back again21:17
j1mchi alienkid21:18
j1mccharlie-tca: hello.  :)21:18
charlie-tcaHi j1mc21:18
juanantonioSinbox, that's not correct, I exit and open one or two sessions depending on the programs I am using ;)21:18
alienkidRight now I am trying to network with my brothers Windows XP computer21:19
sinboxoh ok juanantonio21:19
juanantoniofor instance, I prefer instant messeging from KDE and Kopete, but if I am downloading something or web browsing, Xubuntu is very efficient21:19
charlie-tcajuanantonio: I hope it stays when you restart. I remember seeing a bug report on that, and they have to drag it to the panel each restart21:19
juanantonioNo problem, last time it started and the only difference is that I entered KDE session before sliding to Xfce21:20
alienkidfollowing the guide in the xubuntu doc I type "$sudp smbpasswd -1 [myuesrname]" it then asks for my password but I can't type my password(i.e the only key that works is enter)21:20
sinboxalienkid: the password does not appear, just type it and then press enter21:21
alienkidI have but it refuses it21:21
alienkidwould a reboot help?21:22
alienkidok I am just going to stop bugging you guys becuase it seems I have to do everything 3 times before it works21:23
alienkidso bye again21:23
sinboxyou're not bugging us alienkid21:23
juanantonioYes, it is perfect now. The only difference now between KDE and Xfce sessions is only that in KDE I have Compiz running and customized21:23
alienkidok i'll come back if I need more help21:24
sinboxcompiz: wow, I can't run that on the machines I've got :)21:25
NallemanHow is system sound turned off21:27
Nallemanthe annoying "beep"21:27
j1mcNalleman: do you mean the beep?21:27
juanantoniosinbox, I have a powerful machine, but Vista is like Sauron: its needs have no end21:28
j1mcNalleman: this page explains how to do it:  http://tinyurl.com/29kuqw21:29
j1mci've done that myself, and know that it works.21:29
juanantonioand besides, I had a worm in Vista and shifted to Linux, i don't want to know any more of Vista...only, to play ;)21:29
j1mcNalleman: I recommend adding, "blacklist pcspkr" (without the quotes) to your /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file21:30
j1mcyou can just add "blacklist pcspkr" to the end of that file.21:30
j1mcthat will keep it away between reboots.  if you want it to go away now, just enter, "sudo modprobe -r pcspkr"21:31
sinboxI like this best on your link j1mc : “the system beeps for a reason–it’s trying to tell you something–you should leave it on.”21:31
Nallemanjlmc thanks21:31
alienkidI set up my SMB password but the network places folder isn't in places21:33
alienkidalso I can't find network settings in applications -> system21:34
charlie-tcaalienkid: network settings in not used anymore starting with 8.1021:34
alienkidah outdated doc then...21:35
charlie-tcaRather, Network and Network Tools21:35
j1mcalienkid: you can install gnome-network-admin21:36
sinboxI find samba very hapahazard on my 7.10 :/  I haven't given it a proper try on 8.04 yet21:36
j1mccharlie-tca: what is Network Tools?21:36
charlie-tcaUsed in 8.04 and below to ping, whois, check what the connection is, etc21:36
charlie-tcaIt installed in Applications -> system21:37
alienkidso is there any way to follow along with the doc using the new tools and if so which ones21:37
charlie-tcaWhat doc21:37
alienkidxubuntu doc21:37
robilei installed xmms2 over synaptics but there is no GUI - what can i do? :-(21:38
charlie-tcaWhat is the URL?21:38
alienkidform the Firefox addressbar21:39
NallemanNow i would like to turn of the "drums" and those sounds. i suppose its in a menu somewhere but I cant find it21:39
charlie-tcaConnecting to the internet?21:39
sinboxrobile, check this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=16236921:40
robilesinbox, thank you21:40
sinboxah those drums........ loging sound are great not21:41
charlie-tcaalienkid: do you have the Network manager in the panel?? Looks like two computers...21:41
j1mcNalleman: "sudo aptitude remove ubuntu-sounds"21:42
charlie-tcaright click it and left click "Edit connections"21:42
charlie-tcaShould be one for eth0?21:42
alienkidauto eth0 yes21:43
sinboxj1mc, how would you go about changing the login sounds though (and ideally make them user specific)?21:43
charlie-tcaLeft click it, then click edit21:43
charlie-tcathen click the last tab, change from auto DHCP to manual21:44
j1mcsinbox: applications > settings > login window  (will require you to enter a password) > accessibility21:45
charlie-tcaclick in the addresses window, then click Add21:45
j1mcsinbox: not sure if it can be set user-specific, but i don't think so21:45
charlie-tcaType in the ip address, click in the hilight under netmask, add it, click the hilight under gateway and add it21:45
sinboxwoldn't have thought so either but I thought I'd ask j1mc21:46
charlie-tcaThen click in the white area of addresses again or it won´t save the gateway21:46
alienkidhow do I figure out the gateway and and netmask? Also of which macine??21:47
charlie-tcaIf you are using Static IP, you assign it. The gateway is the ip of the router you use21:48
charlie-tcaNetmask is normally
alienkidhow would I find them though?21:49
Nallemanthunar does not seem to support tabs, is there any other file browser application that does (still lightweight)21:49
charlie-tcaalienkid: I don´t know. You should be able to enter the router configuration and find it there. You can try21:50
charlie-tca192.168.0.1 for most routers, for Linksys21:50
alienkidalso what is it for the machine running Ubuntu or  the one running windows(the IP address I mean21:51
charlie-tcaj1mc: The docs are out of date for 8.10 Connecting to the Internet.21:51
charlie-tcaGateway and netmask stay the same for both21:52
=== _RandyboY is now known as RandyboY
juanantonioNalleman, try PC Man Folder21:52
charlie-tcaalienkid: Are you running both machines at the same time21:52
juanantonioor something like that, it is the one coming with lXDE desktop21:52
juanantonioNalleman, PCMan File Manager21:53
adrifthello everyone. I have a few issues I was hoping someone could help me with in Xubuntu, and please excuse my chat etiquette as I don't use IRC all that much anymore. Problem 1: I just lowered the resolution and I'm finding that the wallpaper now looks sorta fuzzy, as though the color settings have been set lower with the change in resolution. Is anyone aware of this sort of issue, and is there a way to fix it?21:53
Nallemanjuanantonio, ok, will do21:54
juanantonioNalleman, it works very fast, and lloks similar to Thunar21:54
charlie-tcaadrift: is it an LCD?21:54
adriftits an old Dell laptop21:54
charlie-tcaA lot of LCD's have fixed resolution for the best image. Any change makes it fuzzy21:55
adriftdarn. the fixed resolution was just too tiny.21:55
adriftok well thank you Charlie21:55
charlie-tcago in and change the dpi setting.21:56
alienkidcharlie both machines are on21:56
adriftthe dpi setting? where would that be?21:57
charlie-tcaadrift: Applications -> Settings -> Settings Manager -> User Interface21:57
alienkidI found the command to see IP address and things it's "ifconfig"21:57
alienkidin a terminal21:57
charlie-tcaadrift: Font DPI21:57
charlie-tcachange the number to bigger for bigger fonts, I think21:57
adriftcharlie-tca ok i'll try that. thank21:58
charlie-tcano problem.21:58
charlie-tcaalienkid: Yes. Does that give the gateway and IP you wanted?21:58
alienkidI can't understand what it printed out21:59
ubottupastebin is a service to post multiple-lined texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic)21:59
charlie-tcaPaste it to pastebin and I'll look at it21:59
charlie-tcaNormally for two systems, either you let DHCP handle it or you assign the IP addresses yourself22:00
charlie-tcaAccording to that, you are connected using IP, Netmask is, I don't see a gateway22:02
charlie-tcaYou should have the internet up and running22:02
charlie-tcaYour gateway is probably by that, since the Broadcast Address is
alienkidinternet is but I can't see my windows machines22:04
charlie-tcaThat's different. Install pyneighborhood22:05
charlie-tcaThen I don´t know how to make it work after that.22:05
alienkidso I can change method back to automatic22:06
charlie-tcaIf that works, yes.22:06
charlie-tcaJust hit cancel if the window is still open22:07
alienkidalso how can I stop ubuntu from beeping every time I try to move past the end of a line of text22:07
charlie-tcaMine don´t beep. Which program? or is it all of them?22:07
alienkidand search boxes in firefox22:08
charlie-tcaXChat is Settings -> Preferences -> Sounds; turn off the item you don´t want to hear.22:09
juanantonioGo to KDE, bye22:09
charlie-tcaFirefox I don´t know.22:09
charlie-tcaTo turn off the speaker, scroll xchat up to j1mc telling how.22:10
alienkiddinner bye22:11
charlie-tcaYou´re welcome. I´m glad I could help. Good luck22:11
adriftcharlie-tca: I changed the dpi and it looks a lot better now. Thanks. ok I have a second question. I'd like to add an icon or two to the desktop. As far as I can tell though, there are only a select few file/launcer icons that you can add to the desktop. Is there a way to add more?22:14
Nallemannow that i downloaded my new file browser (pcmanfm) how can i make it default?22:20
robileis there a way (plugin?) to get xmms to show a window in which other playlistS are shown? to be able to switch between the playlists?22:26
ThePubadrift: what do you mean by "an icon"?  you want to put folders, files, or something on the desktop?22:29
Nallemancan I make click default for opening files?22:30
Nallemansingle click that is22:30
adriftThePub, essentially, yes22:31
adriftah he's gone22:31
adriftwelcome back ThePub22:32
adriftanyways, to answer your question. yeah, that's sorta what i was getting at. I wanted to be able to launch swiftfox from the desktop.22:32
ThePubI've never had occasion to want to do that, and it doesn't appear as easy as dragging from the menu.  Although you can drag any file from the file manager to the desktop as a copy, link, or move.22:36
adrifthmm... i guess the question then is how to add swiftfox to the file manager so that I can drag it from there to the desktop.22:38
juanantonioHello, I am back again23:05
