yotuxis open office a heavy program16:37
yotuxI noticed that it is not installed in xubuntu16:37
sinboxfairly so16:37
yotuxIs that why it was not installed or used by default for xubuntu16:38
charlie-tcayotux: It takes a lot of memory to run smoothly16:38
yotuxI like xubuntu the most seems that fastest to me16:38
charlie-tcaWe use AbiWord and Gnumeric because they are lightweight compared to OpenOffice.org16:39
yotuxthey do the same for the most part16:42
charlie-tcayes, but memory and cpu can be smaller16:43
yotuxthe only thing that I have problems with is crossover office16:44
yotuxand they do not support XFCE with an automatic menu16:44
charlie-tcaI see. Menu issues are being worked on by Xfce.16:45
jxanderwhen i right-click on the menu button from the panel and click on edit menu, i don't get all the menu items, how could i edit the whole menu? where is the menu file located?17:38
rhavennjxander: they're pulled in by the "systems" menu item17:40
jxanderrhavenn: maybe i'm too tired, but i did't understand what you said... where is the systems menu item? i still don't know how to edit the entire menu :(17:43
jarnosjxander: You can add to System menu by adding a submenu named System and then adding an item there.17:46
jarnosjxander: Not very elegant, though.17:47
jxanderbut how do i add an item to multimedia?17:48
Odd-rationalejxander: http://wiki.xfce.org/tips#how_to_add_or_remove_applications_in_the_system_menu17:50
Odd-rationalei think they are working on a better menu editor for xfce 4.6 ...17:51
jarnosjxander: Make submenu called Multimedia and add an item to it.18:02
jxanderjarnos: will it appear in Multimedia with the rest of the items?18:02
jarnosjxander: yes.18:03
jxanderjarnos: thanks a lot, trying right now :D18:03
jxanderjarnos: it did the trick, a bit uglier than gnome, but works... thanks!18:11
jarnosjxander: good :) I have not tried the gnome way. I hope Xfce people get a better way to edit menu.18:15
jxanderare you using gnome?18:16

retourwhy in my /media I have mounting points with ~? I.e. /cdrom0 AND ~cdrom. Can I delete it?23:23
jarnosretour: With ~?23:27
jarnosretour: no need to delete cdrom items.23:28
retourjarnos: ~cdrom and again /cdrom0. Why? can I delete both and make my own mount point /DVD-ROM23:28
jarnosretour: cdrom is symlink to the other23:29
jarnosretour: and /cdrom is symlink to /media/cdrom23:30
retourjarnos: OK do I need it? Is it generate automatically? Can I create own mount point and delete default ones?23:30
jarnosretour: I don't know. Maybe the default ones are used by some applications.23:31
jarnosretour: Why don't you create another symlink named DVD-ROM (if you really need that)?23:33
