Jack_Sparrowest28, envy off the web or   envyng from our repos.. there is a difference00:00
raylukole: also, alt+f2, gnome-terminal and system > preferences > keyboard shortcuts has an option to open a termianl00:00
Barridusraylu, no prob.  i gather from the link there is no "shortcut" for a path?00:00
BangersI ran a "cp -rf" that failed towards the end, how do I restart it so it continues on from the last file?00:00
rayluBarridus: er, like i said, ~00:00
geniikole: ctrl-alt-f1   but it's more useful to run it under the Terminal as rww says00:00
Barridusthat failed too00:00
est28Jack_Sparrow: : from web00:00
rayluBarridus: you mean in the gui, don't you?00:00
rayluBarridus: heh.00:01
Jack_Sparrowest28, Not good.. and sorry cant help fix it00:01
Barridusmaybe i should have specified00:01
TriBeCa99can anyone help? "mdadm /dev/md1 --add /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1" is adding the devices as spare, rather than replacing the two missing drives. what do i need to do to get them to replace those drives?00:01
rayluBarridus: there should be a way to bind a key to "nautilus ~"00:01
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about hotkey00:01

jjleenickrud: himm, looking at debmirror source, it looks like it does just fetch these with rsync, so that dir shouldn't be involved... I'll give it a go, though00:01
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about acpi00:01
Austin`1raylu: well I umount'd the fs and I still froze when touching ~/Desktop/sadfsadf. I suppose that I should reboot and then retry?00:01
est28Jack_Sparrow: yes, but the is no way to turn off desktop effects ? maybe I can uninstal compiz ?00:01
raylu!search acpi00:01
ubottuFound: hdbug00:01
Barridushmmm ok cool, i didn't realize i could do that.  thanks raylu00:01
jjleeI'm using rsync.mirrorservice.org, BTW00:02
nickrudjjlee, ah, I thought you were having issues with simple filling of the apt list, not debmirror00:02
Anacranomest28, if this is a new install and nothing to lose, why not re-install ?00:02
rayluAustin`1: no. i'm thinking this is a hard drive issue00:02
AndreasMadriddemilord_78 ok, that one worked. Thank you.  now even the network thing is back!! Thank you very much. Am a beginner and a noob. Sorry for stupid questions. Now I know for next time.00:02
rayluAustin`1: what you could try is editing your /etc/fstab and replacing "relatime" with "noatime"00:02
Jack_Sparrowest28, you can try sudo apt-get remove compizconfig-settings-manager00:02
jjleenickrud: plus, apt-get falls over if I move that dir out of the way00:02
demilord_78y.w AndreasMadrid :-)00:02
rayluAustin`1: also, perhaps "sudo dmesg | tail" or "tail /var/log/messages" has something to offer00:02

ozzloyhow do i get konsole to open links in firefox?00:03
Anacranomest28, i would do a full re-install of 8.10 and if you have to have envy, then do it from the repos, would be cleaner, envy from the web leaves clutter everywhere00:03
ozzloyi don't have kubuntu, just konsole in regular ubuntu00:03
est28Jack_Sparrow: : but what is wronk with envy from web ?00:04
n2diyozzloy: right click them?00:04
Austin`1raylu: that's mostly wlan0 issues. and ppdev000:04
chadeldridgeall .. i need some help with a wireless connection .. i have a iwlagn card but the max i can connect to my router at is 54, however in windows i can connect at the full 300mb ... any ideas ?00:04
Jack_Sparrowest28, envy even from our repos should be considered a last resort00:04
ubottuenvyng is an updated version of the *UNSUPPORTED* envy package. It is now part of the ubuntu universe repository (envyng-gtk OR envyng-qt) we suggest you use envyng if every other (official/supported) method fails! it can have various results from works, to fails!!!  if you want the very latest drivers from the manufacturer you use them at your own risk00:04
Austin`1raylu: I have to 'relatime' in /etc/fstab. want me to pastebin it?00:04
ozzloyn2diy: that opens a new konsole with some text browser00:04
est28Jack_Sparrow: : ok, got it00:04
rayluAustin`1: sure00:05
* Anacranom agrees with Jack_Sparrow , and refuses to use envy, ever again00:05

* est28 thanks Anacranom and Jack_Sparrow for clarification00:06
Austin`1raylu: I'm not good with fstab but 'errors=remount-ro' seems important00:06
rayluAustin`1: that just means to remount the fs readonly if it encounters errors00:06

lusepusterHello channel. I have some problems getting my Ubuntu Intrepid laptop working on my in-laws' router. Their windows machine has no probloem, but it seems Autoeth0 doesn't do it. No hole through to the world. Any good suggestions? Writing from their windows machine now.00:15

groundupHello, I am having some serious sound problems. About a day ago it all started. Not sure what I did but I was trying to get my headphones to work so I could talk on Skype. It is currently making a static noise that starts as soon as the kernel loads. I can hear sounds under the static slightly and I can change the volume of the static by adjusting the in-gain control under the SigmaTel...00:15
canthus14Quick question: I have a desktop-turned-server. If I uninstall X and GDM, will it still start Apache at boot?00:15
groundup...STAC9205 menu in volume control applet. In alsamixer if I turn the capture device off, I lose all sound. I can't change the master volume there. Although, if I hold the master volume slider in the vol control app at its max volume, I can hear music from banshee for a split second.00:15
SanketsuOk, and it won't do any of the upgrades at that time then KenBW22?00:15
Jack_Sparrowchalcedony, Are you running it under ndiswrapper or does it have true linux driver/support00:15
KenBW22Sanketsu: not till you ok it00:15

canthus14nickrud: THanks.00:16

gogereavergoat123 you can install grub from the live cd or using supergrub00:22
Wickedkids in a linux irc room. god help them!00:22

lusepustergogereaver: no, exactly. I never used cable modem before, and mistook it for a router. But I hope this works. Thanks, and bye!01:07
gogereaverlusepuster it should01:07
gogereaverlusepuster done it myself when i didnt have a roughter01:07
gogereaverlusepuster always worked01:07
rxsmas2: what ubuntu version are you using ? graphics card type and can you give the output of uname -a ?01:07
allymariei searched the problem thru ubuntu search, and tried a link that sounded just like my problem and ended up at bugs.launchpad.net.....the got command lines to fix it at https://gtk-gnutella.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/gtk-gnutella/trunk/gtk-gnutella/README.Debian01:07
dougemdomny_devi: I can ping (matt.colyer.name) from my Mac w/o issue and the DNS request goes out. My ubuntu box can ping, but can not resolve matt.colyer.name.01:08
jriballymarie: can you link me to the bug report please?01:08
rxsHi ! I am using ubuntu 8.04 w/ xfce . I wish to use compiz. I have a thinkpad T43 w/ ati x300 64MB graphics card. I use opensource ati drivers. Every thing works fine. I have been able to use dual display with an external monitor connected at 1680x1050 etc .. but when I try to use compiz or elisa with the external monitor, a part of the xternal monitor display is screwed.... anyone willing to help / talk about similar experiences ?01:08
allymarieyes...just s ec01:08
dougemdomny_devi: does your box resolve the address?01:09

ubottuYou can use <tab> for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.01:10
rxsmas2: I have not used 8.10 much , but I figure you do not have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf .. do you ? and what do you use for dual head support ? I mean what command do you use ?01:10
allymariejrib...have copied these to terminal...but unsure what source tree means01:10
jriballymarie: one sec, phone01:11
allymariejrib..thanks for the help01:11
mas2rxs: I don't use a command for that. As default It booted with dual and to switch between dual, laptop or external I use the laptop FN + KeyForSwitchScreen key. So it works fine just that I need to change the resolution but it hasn't been detected in Screen Resolution so I can set it.01:11
allymariejrib...i don't use ubuntu enough to remember everything :P01:12

LuXorhey guys tell me a good download manager01:14
Dexihey guys every once in a while my sound from the java web plugin fails and my CPU heats up a good 15c...01:14

allymariejrib...that link comes back 404 not found....but found another link further down that worked01:19

mas2rxs: then I get direct rendering: Yes, OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1300 ( was 2 lines)01:20
allymariejrib....at the launchpad.net one01:20
dr_williseseven73,  boot live cd.. fsck from that if all else fails.. or force the unmount.01:20
tbrockhey guys, is there a problem with flash-nonfree? my firefox constantly turns black and unresponsive and its very very slow when displaying any sort of flash01:20
tbrockanything i can do to fix this, or is this a known problem01:20

jriballymarie: what is the output of 'uname -m'01:21
P4C0bazhang, yes, I already did that... I'm asking about what will be the safest way to do it... I can do it with floppies (if the sarge floppy image doesn't detect my network i will be in troubles)... installing it inside windows seems a bit strange...01:21

tbrockgogereaver, sorry i'm not understanding01:22
bazhangP4C0, this is  ubuntu support only #debian for their support01:22
illmortalHey has the Icons content changed directory in Ubuntu 8.10?01:22
tbrockI installed flash-nonfree, and you are saying that i should not have because it is a restricted extra01:22
TBotNikAll: Is there a WebMaster channel where you can discuss java, javascript, PHP and others, with how they all work together, without someone trying to tell you "Against the rules" for this discussion?01:22

P4C0bazhang, ... do you have anything good to say or are you just trolling around?01:23
gogereavertbrock it comes in the extra package set installing it alone is a bit dated01:23
rxsmas2: did you do anything similar ever ?01:23
* usser hehe01:23
Morpheus972Bonjour Tout Le Monde !!! :)01:23
jriballymarie: just go to a terminal, type 'uname -m' without the quotes, and hit enter01:23
tbrockgogereaver, ah, so i should uninstall and then install ubuntu-extras01:24
tbrockwhat is the exact package name?01:24
gogereavertbrock ubuntu-restricted-extras yep01:24
allymariejrib i68601:24
bazhangubuntu-restricted-extras tbrock01:24
jriballymarie: ok, you want the i386 deb then.  Get that one01:24

allymariejrib...geez, i am a headache01:25
jriballymarie: it's a link, you click it...01:25
tbrockok, i don't seem to see how this is any different than just installing it on its own, why is that dated?01:25
rxsmas2: yes... I have a lappie with a ati x300 card. I was suffering with FGLRX for long and then decided to use the opensource drivers and life is easy now ...01:25
Kuninjrib I followed those directions, so now using evdev, but still no luck (xev and xbindkeys do not register those buttons/wheel)01:26
jribKunin: you restarted X?01:26
allymariejrib..but where is this magical link?01:26
FergatROnHi,  I just installed Ubuntu 8.10 i386 on my new Dell Studio desktop, but after I install it, my keyboard and mouse don't work.  I can do ctrl+alt+f1 on the gui login screen, but nothing else works.  I also did what was suggested on the release notes page to no avail.01:26
jriballymarie: in the bug report in the WORKAROUNDS section01:26
Kuninjrib yes, ctrl+alt+bksp01:26
mas2rxs: so I can use aticonfig commands and they edit the xorg.conf for me? And this works because I got an ATI card and using FGLRX ?01:26
allymariejrib....sorry but this has been going on for months just trying to get my gnutella to work01:26
tbrockgogereaver, i'm cool with java, but i just wanted to know why the other way, with just one package is outdated, it should be the same01:26
rxsmas2: the opensource drivers are pretty stable and everything works great for me ... unless ur a avid gamer and need very great 3d accel .. I would recommen them01:26
illmortalGuys, where's the "start" icon in Ubuntu 8.10 I checked .icons and there's nothing in it01:27
rxsmas2: yes...01:27
jriballymarie: do you understand what you need to do now?01:27
allymariejrib...that link says its not found when i click on it01:27
jribKunin: did you verify it is using evdev by reading /var/log/Xorg.0.log01:27
mas2rxs: FGLRX is not an open source? what should I use insteed?01:27
rxsmas2: the aticonfig has to be done on a terminal as root as it edits the xorg and puts in appropriate sections ...01:27
TBotNikbazhang: Yeah, of no help at all, have industrial strength IE problem and no one know how to fix, but all thumping their chest pretending.01:28
mas2rxs: I see, do I have to run it as a root or can I use sudo ?01:28
jriballymarie: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/g/gtk-gnutella/gtk-gnutella_0.96.5-1build1_i386.deb01:28

FergatROnHi,  I just installed Ubuntu 8.10 i386 on my new Dell Studio desktop, but after I install it, my keyboard and mouse don't work.  I can do ctrl+alt+f1 on the gui login screen, but nothing else works.  I also did what was suggested on the release notes page to no avail.01:38
jerrodwhat command01:38
pinksterrxs: I'm using 8.10, 64-bit. Output of uname -a is01:38
mas2rxs: xrandr is a gui tool for chaning resolutions and such?01:38
rxsFergatROn: so do you get to the login screen and it just hangs there ?01:38
Angiehow do i download an entire website with all directories01:38
bazhangjerrod, sudo dpkg --configure -a01:38

jribAngie: wget01:39
Kuninjrib: does the mouse work better OOB in intrep?  I've put off the upgrade since last time it took days to get things back to normal01:39
mas2rxs: i guess I will give it a try. I can always change back to fglrx if it doesn't work well with my compiz effects and such.01:39
FergatROnrxs, yes. i get to the login screen and the mouse/keyboard doesn't work.01:39
Kuninjrib: no, I have two others01:39

Kuninjrib: also have an event-kbd and a -mouse, in addition to the -event-mouse01:40

ksierksi just installed fedora 10 and i don't have any sound... can anyone help?01:55
goat|lappyArea52: i would suggest setting up an ssh tunnel to your server, and forward your web traffic through there, but i cant say how to do it exactly,  there are tutorials for that01:55
Area52i have access to my ssh telnet and webmin to my server behind the router i want to access but to access the router i need to make that router think that the  server is sending the info01:55
rxsArea52: if you already have a ssh forward setup in the router and can ssh into the machine on the other side of the router using ur homes global ip, I would suggest using ssh with X forwarding, start firefox on the remote machine and edit ur router config as if you are at home behind it :)01:56
_dennisterdman: from my very limited knowledge of compiz, yes01:56
bazhangksierks, #fedora for that01:56

jriballymarie: 'mv ~/.gtk-gnutella/ ~/.gtk-gnutella.old' should do it.  It's just a directory that starts with a dot.  Those are hidden by default, so you can't see them in nautilus without going to View -> Show hidden files02:20

Flanneljigpe: No, older releases are as a guideline, more stable02:30
jigpeso this is a bug that's why I have no icons and menu in gnome 8.04?02:30

Flannelflaco: yep02:30
bazhangwfire, alternate cd as well? did you md5 the iso02:30
flacoFlannel, I'm asking because this is my xorg.conf: http://dpaste.com/106607/02:31
jigpeFlannel : this happens when I switch to kde environment.desktop icons and menu are gone if I switch to gnome02:31
wfiredidn't do the md5, will do that, but I also tried the alternate and burned at slowest speed02:31
Kuninjrib: Know if intrepid fixed the issue (I think it was a kernel one though) where massive numbers of connections (like having a ton of torrents going) causes a hard lock?02:31
jribKunin: no idea02:31
Flannelflaco: Correct.  Its all done automagically now.02:31

Guest64230Hello, I have a strange problem with graphics card drivers: I made ubuntu use a restricted driver for my graphics card, and it messed up the whole gui--completely white after I login to ubuntu. So I started up in recovery mode, and choose to try and restore the X system. Now I have my gui back, but it's very very slow, and buggy, any ideas how to get the previous settings back ?\02:32
flacoFlannel, :S and there is no way to get the "old style" ?02:32
rxsBaz_: nothing retarted , but whats ur desktop gnome or kde ?02:32

Nekosanwhite screen in remote desktop viewer ... any ideas? ubuntu 8.10 .. works from the other direction fine02:32
bazhangwfire, also do the disk integrity check; alternate works sometimes when live cd with boot parameters specified fails02:32
Flannelflaco: I believe whatever you stick in there (presumably the old stuff) is honored.02:32
Baz_rxs: gnome02:32
Flannelflaco: But, I haven't really kept up on the new X, someone else likely knows more.02:32

NetGearNewbHow do I connect to the internet with NetGear wg111 and ndiswrapper02:57

Guest1466xorg xchat xfum4 thunar excetera02:59
Baz_rxs: the old catch22, need wireless to get the updates, need updates to get wireless02:59
rxsBaz_ if you do so, the machine will recognize the card and automatically install the appropriate drivers .. yes it sounds like a vicious circle .. but its the easiest  way to get done02:59
cwilluKunin, you'd have to do the restore from a livecd, and might have to do a grub recovery (straightforward), but aside from that, yes02:59
Baz_rxs: i will do it!02:59
rcguzon_this is a bit off topic, but does anyone know url_regex in squid02:59

vantraxLogomachist, the livecd lets you edit local files, sudo grub loads the grub terminal and you can find and repair grub, or install it if it is missing03:21
cwillumarabout, use the name that spits back at you03:21
rxs[1]Blue: you are just removing the closed source drivers completely and reinstalling the opensource ones ... thats all you are doing and it affects just the graphics card .. you have the same card as I have in my lappie and you will be fine :)03:22

tenXFlannel: thank you :)03:26
Jack_Sparrowwoli, Not really, it is about that partition..03:26
cwillutenX, the point of privilege separation is to prevent apps running in the context of your user from being able to do things as root03:26
woliJack_Sparrow: 'tis03:26
rxsBaz_1: Ah .. iteresting ... I am lost man :(03:26

Jack_Sparrowwoli, Are you trying to end up with a dual boot or what03:28
rxsBaz_1: good luck03:28
woliJack_Sparrow: correct;;03:28
tenXcwillu: i will not criticize any politics. and i have already stated that basic sudo based usage for newbies in ubuntu is a good idea. talking about people knowing their biz.03:29
maraboutcwillu: perhaps I can do it in reverse, i.e. look up the host name of the (ubuntu) computer to see if the Mac will recognize it and kind of back track from there...?03:29
[1]BlueJust to make sure : when I type lspci I get "05:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV380 [Radeon X600]" as my graphics card. So in the xorg.conf file I should have "PCI:5:0:1", is that right ?03:29
rxs[1]Blue:  are you back?03:29
Jack_Sparrowwoli, have you pastebin'd your fstab as it is now03:29

chrisawraylu, eeebuntu (with gnome) installed fine04:07
rayluPooky: why do you have a usb drive formated as HFS+?04:08
rxsToadlips: go ahead04:08
chrisawBaz_, desktop environment...gnome or kde04:08
ToadlipsMy installation went OK, but the screen freezes after a few seconds with some random garbage on the screen04:08
maraboutDracie_: Probably not it just took way too much time to get Ubuntu isntalled on this machine due to the video card (driver) issues. Dont think I want to relive that again. For example:04:08
Pookyraylu: because I primarily have macs, with a small handful of linux boxes, for things like file sharing and such04:08
ToadlipsI'm running SLI, so I assume that's part of it...I just don't know how to download drivers when the install won't give me enough time!04:08
ToadlipsUnless you think it might be something else!04:09
rxsToadlips: okay .. so you have installed the os and you are start the machine as usual .. yes ? and what is the os u have installed ?04:09
marabout"anyone on the forum have anything good to say about via chrome9 hc igp driver and Ubuntu?"04:09
Baz_chrisaw: ah... so whats not a DE and not command line?04:09
ToadlipsYep, Ubuntu 8.10, and I can always log in just fine.04:09
Dracie_marabout, oh... the worst video driver issue i had was gentoo live 2008.1 set my X with radeon drivers which doesn't work with my card04:09
ToadlipsI can also move the mouse, but CTRL-ALT-BS no workie...04:09
Sorcererbobhow many of you do support on the forums too?04:09
Dracie_so X wouldn't start unelss i changed it to vesa04:09
qqxcowbud: edit what?04:10
rayluPooky: according to http://sourceforge.net/projects/linux-hfsplus, this project has been dead since 200304:10
chrisawBaz_, generally known as a "window manager"...fluxbox, wmii, dwm, ratpoison.04:10
rayluPooky: and i believe it's a read-only deal04:10
rayluPooky: http://www.ardistech.com/hfsplus/ is beta but supports non-journaled writes04:10
Dracie_i think you can read write to hfs04:10
rxsToadlips: so you can logon and things work, okay .. are using Nvidia drivers ?04:10
Toadlips2x 7800GTs...some others seemed to have some driver issues with the same setup, but I can't even download the drivers to try my luck...04:10
ToadlipsNo, I'm using whatever the OS originally came with....04:11
cowbudqqx write-catalog.c at the line that is reported in the error04:11
Pookyraylu: oooooh, I bet someone turnedon journaling04:11
rayluPooky: wait, ew. they both named their drivers "hfsplus." that's annoying04:11
rxsBaz_: xfce is good too04:11
WingardWell, this is great.04:11
rayluPooky: no, you should be able to mount a journaled filesystem without journaling support04:11
Dracie_Wingard, whats great04:11
qqxcowbud i have no idea what you're talking about :(04:11
WingardNow I'm stuck on 800x600, xrandr won't read xorg.conf's Modes line, and my Windows XP disk doesn't want to work.04:11
rxsToadlips: can you see if the system suggests any closed source NVIDIA drivers as part of the restricted manager ?04:11
maraboutDracie_: no such luck here with vesa or openchrome. Had to do a text based install with Hardy alternate CD then do update via terminal/console all the while my  by hands were being held these great chaps on the forum...04:11
WingardUbuntu has to be the worst distro yet.04:11
Baz_rxs: xfce is considered a DE or WM04:12
[2]BlueBack with the drivers issue : upon logging out, I got a "low graphics" interface that wanted me to choose my screen from a list, as well as a driver for the graphics card (did I mess up the xorg.conf, or is that normal?) I then logged in again, this time it was not slow and buggy as it was before (great!) but the resolution was at 800x600 and I couldn't get it higher. After a full reboot, the resolution is normal again, direct renderi04:12
rayluchrisaw: still waiting on you to finish explaining04:12
marabout*by these great chaps04:12
ToadlipsIt did recommend that on my initial boot, but since then I cannot download anything -- the system freezes first :(04:12
rxsWingard: please wait .. dont bad mouth04:12
karlpWingard: eh, imho, it's not the best for pretty much anything, but it's up there. certainly not on the low end of the list anyway04:12
cwillurxs, I was just going to add him to my ignore list :p04:12
cowbudqqx: then you probably shouldn't be doing what you are doing there04:12
karlpWingard: it has a package manager that works at least.04:12
ToadlipsI never actually had the chance to download the drivers before it all crapped out on me...04:12
Dracie_hmm well with debian etch i installed gnome on my imac g3 just fine04:13
Dracie_so i dunno04:13
rxsBaz_ xfce - DE , xfwm - wm04:13
qqxcowbud i want to configure BlueZ and this is a prerequisite04:13
Wingardkarlp: For me, it's the lowest, considering in it, xrandr can't manage to read xorg.conf. And most distros have a package manager that works.04:13
rxscwillu: go ahead... :)04:13
rayluPooky: try mounting it as "hfs" instead of "hfsplus"04:13
Dracie_the thing with debian is its actually supporting officially Powerpc so you can except better a better install04:13
chrisawraylu, sorry.  basically I know I can get a comfortable install going on just 2 GB, but I need to do a minimal install, and from there add fluxbox or LXDE...and I'm thinking about 1, 1.5 GB used then.04:13
cwilluWingard, xorg doesn't use modelines anymore, if you have an old xorg.conf file (pre xrandr1.2) you'll need to rework it.  Far simpler than it used to be though04:14
cowbudqqx: it seems more like you want to install it from source which is a bit different04:14
ToadlipsRsx, do you think I need the official NVIDIA drivers?  If so, how can I patch them in when I can't use the gui?04:14
Dracie_chrisaw, do a compressed /usr filesystem04:14
qqxcowbud just pm me04:14
Dracie_you'll save so much space04:14
rxscwillu,[2]Blue: if [2]Blue had correctly followed https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver , he shouldnt have issues04:14
maraboutDracie_: Linux is still a new world for me so I want to tread slowly. My intention is to get my children used to using Ubuntu/Edubuntu as well the Mac & PC so I'm concentrating on Ubuntu for now.04:14
Pookyraylu: it tells me it's the wrong fs type04:14
Wingardcwillu: I tried both adding Modes "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" to the end of the Display subsection in the Screen section and using a modeline. Neither worked.04:15
chrisawDracie_, yeah, but how to do so?04:15
Pookymeh, this has been working  for 3 months, and suddenly now it's borked :/04:15
Dracie_marabout, good idea, is there a big difference with edubuntu than ubuntu?04:15
rayluchrisaw: i _think_ the alternate cd lets you install desktop edition without a DE04:15
cwilluWingard, pastebin your xorg.conf, tell us which card you're using, and what resolution you want04:15
Dracie_chrisaw, check out www.eeeuser.com - all the documentation you'll need04:15
rayluchrisaw: no idea if there's an eeebuntu alternate, though04:15
DaveDixonIIwhere can i download the default GNOME theme?04:15
maraboutDracie_: do you know of any resources for mac users entering into the Linux/Ubuntu environment. It may be easier to get some work down by mimicing the OS X environment in the beginning04:16
Wingardcwillu: This is the current broken xorg.conf: http://paste.ubuntu.com/102014/ I have an nVidia GeForce 6200 and I (rather obviously) want to run 1600x1200.04:16
chrisawraylu, yeah, I figured I'd pop in the alternate CD now and do the array.org custom kernel later...but I'm not seeing any customization options, even on the expert install. Maybe I should try the netinstall?04:16
gordtz1cwillu; can you help with my xorg.conf config?04:16

ToadlipsThere are a lot of "buffer io" errors on bootup, but they flash by so fast I can't really tell what they are during the text mode bootup04:17

cwilluWingard, http://pastebin.com/f11d379af is my xorg.conf with an nvidia, although you can drop the twinview line obviously04:18
chrisawraylu, ok, thanks for the help anyway :)04:18
Dracie_marabout, there is a project to make a linux machine look like a mac graphically04:18
wfireoh man, I finally got ubunut all loaded and then I ran the updates and when I rebooted all it comes up with is GRUB, can someone tell me what that is?04:18
cwilluWingard, stick that one in, and then run nvidia-settings04:18
chrisawraylu, I',m in the standard alternate install now, not the eeebuntu one04:18
rayluchrisaw: oh04:18
rxswfire: do you see any lines in grup ? i mean kernels as boot options ?04:18
Dracie_marabout, i would do a dual boot ubuntu and mac os x system04:18

cwilluBaz_, not really, it won't break anything04:19

maraboutDracie_: meaning install OS X (10.5) onto this laptop (everex stepnote NC1502)?04:19
maraboutPooky: Why is that? What happens?04:19
cwilluWingard, once you have nvidia-settings open, go to "X Server Display Configuration", and tweak it from there04:20
rayluPooky: woah. http://linux.die.net/man/1/hfs04:20
cwilluWingard, nvidia's driver doesn't support xrandr 1.2 extensions, but uses its own lines that are similar.  nvidia-settings will get you started (in fact, running it as part of your session will restore the settings even without an xorg.conf file, as long as the nvidia driver itself is being used)04:20
DaveDixonIIAmazing how everyone else recieves support. :(04:21
wfireweird I shut it off to take out cd, now it works fine04:21
[2]BlueI followed the instructions from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver, it seems to work fairly well (and the direct rendering works) but it doesn't seem like it's the same driver as before since "fancier" things ask me to update the driver to xorg-driver-fglrx where as before it didn't.04:21
Wingardcwillu: nvidia-settings doesn't like to work for me, all it allows me to change is Panning, which doesn't really do much other than make things not work.04:21
rxsDaveDixonll: whats up ?04:21
Pookymarabout: for me, it's just support for all the weird mac hardware.  smc controls and such were bonked the last time I tried it, so I could either be carrying a jet engine or a lap cooker.04:21
rayluDaveDixonII: try the gnome irc channel04:21
DaveDixonIIThe channel is?04:21

raylutyta_linux: iptables -F04:29
cwilluWingard, one sec, people bugging me04:29
tyta_linuxthanks raylu04:29
kaushalwhen i do dpkg -l mysql it does not list04:29
raylutyta_linux: of course. also, "man iptables" should help04:29
marabout!hello | kaushal04:29
ubottukaushal: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu!04:29
kaushalis there a way i can find out04:29
Toadlipsrxs: Is there a command to initialize eth0?  I tried ifconfig up04:29
nickrudkaushal, try dpkg -l '*mysql*'04:29
cwilluWingard, are you around in a couple hours?04:29
aprilharequestion: i have a graphics card that I want to shutdown whenever it gets over a critical temperature. problem is, it's whenever I'm playing a game that prevents gksudo from taking over. is there a way to force shutdown I don't know about that doesn't require su or sudo?04:29
tyta_linuxmy iptables keep me from accessing gmail04:29
jribqqx: why are you compiling gettext?04:30
Wingardcwillu: Probably not, by then I'll probably have thrown this computer out of the window.04:30
aprilharethe command i was trying was gksudo "shutdown -h now"04:30
DaveDixonIIThis is the theme i want: http://live.gnome.org/Nibbles?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=nibbles.png04:30
rayluaprilhare: sudo should be sufficient for shutdown04:30
[2]Bluerxs : well, yes, it runs fast, but I think it's still missing something since if I choose "Normal" from the "visual effects" tab of the "Appearance Preferences" it won't do it, but instead says I need to update the driver to an accelerated ATI one (more precisely "xorg-driver-fglrx"), the exact driver that caused all the trouble. Where as before I installed that driver (and messed everything up) I could choose the "Normal" or even 04:30

ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto04:38
Flannelpeepsalot: so people with the old package name (gaim) upgrade to the new gaim (transitional) which depends on pidgin, so they now have pidgin04:38
nickrudpeepsalot, that transitional package will depend upon the new package, making sure the new one gets installed when upgrading to the new release04:39

maraboutraylu: how do I replace gnome-screensaver with xscreensaver and how will i know if i should?05:03
OmnipotentEntityraylu, I'd like to copy the output of a program and paste it somewhere, but it's too unwieldy to copy the output from the terminal.05:03
pg_quesSaiki: I used apt-get purge and then apt-get install05:03
rayluLogomachist: you can't install grub from windows anyway...05:03
rxstonyyarusso: how are you doing ? any progress.. i want to go offline shortly05:03
ogahyellowthe issue was it was a usb drive, so it lost power yet the computer (laptop) did not.05:03
SaikiI don't want to purge them05:03
pg_quesraylu: same thing happened with mysql05:03
rayluLogomachist: and sdc4 implies you have an sda and sdb. perhaps you're forgetting about a usb drive or something?05:03
Meshezabeeljustin_ -rwxr-xr-x05:03
tonyyarussorxs: yeah - just keep giving steps and I'll let you know if they don't work05:03
pg_quesraylu: for mysql I installed mysql-server and mysql-client05:03
rayluOmnipotentEntity: you can redirect the output of a program to many places. again, can you be more specific about where you're pasting it?05:03
OmnipotentEntityraylu, a webpage05:04
rayluOmnipotentEntity: a... pastebin?05:04
OmnipotentEntityin this case yes.05:04
raylu!info pastebinit05:04
ubottupastebinit (source: pastebinit): command-line pastebin client. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.10-1 (intrepid), package size 9 kB, installed size 88 kB05:04
justin_Meshezabeel, so it is excutable. when running from the command line does it give any output at all05:04
OmnipotentEntityraylu, is there a general solution though?05:04
raylumarabout: you'd have to poke the screensaver changer again. and you can just install xscreensaver05:04
rayluOmnipotentEntity: probably. one sec05:04

Meshezabeeljustin_ it simply says: "no such file or directory"05:05
maraboutraylu: as in "apt-get install xscreensaver" ?05:06
raylumarabout: yes. apt-cache search xscreensaver first, because there are a few other packages with extra tasty screensavers05:06
rxs[2]Blue: good luck ...05:06
justin_Meshezabeel, it it says that then it's not finding the file05:06
raylumarabout: er, make that tasty extra screensavers05:06
Meshezabeeljustin_, I just installed ia32-libs to see if that would help, it seems to now detect the program, but I get errors saying: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS6405:06

shogbinAll right, I was able to use wvdial to start a ppp connection to a dial-up provider.  I needed to tell wvdial to use the local conf file and not read the /etc/wvdial.conf file.  It seems that gnome-ppp automatically uses the /etc/wvdial.conf file which is why gnome-ppp is not connecting for me.05:14

Roastedrxs - I assume pulse audio works. I mean, I never did anything to change my sound settings.06:05
rayluqqx: again, it's in the repositories. aptitude search bluez06:05
rayluRoasted: a very bad assumption06:06
qqxraylu, again the BlueZ firmware is not in the repositories06:06
Roastedrxs - the only thing I did was I have to select my PCI sound card to be used in Ubuntu, because I leave my onboard card activated since Vista lovlingly doesnt support my PCI sound card. So I essentially use onboard for Vista, PCI sound card for Ubuntu. Only trick is I need to select it when I boot up.06:06

rxsRoasted: PA has been a bit odd in 8.1006:06
rayluqqx: yes it is06:06
Roastedraylu - then how do I figure out if pulse audio works? I mean, why is that a bad assumption? My sound worked. It was fine. I had no problems. SOMETHING obviously worked.06:06
RoastedI just don't understand why I had to change my output engine in Amarok just now.06:06
rayluRoasted: oh. it used to work :P06:06
tenXSoorlag: it worked out for me but still is a ridicule. imho sound support for linux is an inside job06:07

Logomachistraylu: Ah ok06:17
rxssaler: can you please paste bin your error ?06:17
VozivtenX::: Sorry I think I typed that wrong, seting up the domain, I'm using ISPConfig, a variation of cpanel, and to add a dns entry, it's asking for a nameserver for the domain. It's requesting for the Domain name, ip address, and then NS1 and NS2, and an email, so I'm trying to figure out what to put for NS1 and NS2 since this is my own server, I don't have dedicated nameservers06:17
rxsRoasted: pulse audio keeps me wondering at times06:18
tenXVoziv: i'd think you should use nameservers given by your provider?06:18
Roastedrxs - I don't really understand the point of it. Everybody told me it's so you can run youtube/amarok (or whatever) at the same time.  Yet, I never had ANY problems with Alsa at all.06:18

Roastedrxs - it sounds like pulse audio is for more top end stuff, but can also be used for everyday stuff for the typical user. Regardless, it's based on alsa from what I understand, and alsa is still easily usable and whatnot.06:21
proqesiraylu: parseInt("a 5") => 5, because it knows the difference between a number and a char06:21

mib_5860bsoqHi .. when I do apt-get update .. i see this at the end06:22
mib_5860bsoqW: GPG error: http://wine.budgetdedicated.com hardy Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 58403026387EE26306:22
RoastedI have had far less issues with intrepid than with any other distro or release of ubuntu in itself, so I'm quite happy with it. I'm just not understanding the full mentality behind the "requirement" some people have for pulse audio.06:22
rayluproqesi: to mean, that's insane. that should throw an error06:22
mib_5860bsoqwhy? and how do i fix it?06:22
raylumib_5860bsoq: why are you using budgetdedicated.com as a repository?06:23
tenXVoziv: in that case you'll have to define an * dns server. damn i am missing the word.06:23
mib_5860bsoqumm .. i dunno06:23
rxsRoasted: to me pulse audio was a drastic inclusion in unbuntu .. they should have waited ....06:23
Flannelmib_5860bsoq: You don't have the GPG key for the wine repository.  It's not the end of the world (except the packages that come from there won't be verified, and could potentially be tampered with).  You need to addthe wine package key to your keyring.  The winehq site should have instructions.06:23
raylumib_5860bsoq: could you pastebin /etc/apt/sources.list?06:23
Dr_willisfor the latest wine.06:23
Flannelraylu: That's not necessary.06:23
ksa-24wireless to void06:23
tenXVoziv: a dns being consulted in case your bind doesnt know the answer06:23
salerrxs,Flannel , i type groups i found my user in the list06:23
proqesiraylu: no, it works fine06:23
Roastedrxs - I heard fedora supports pulse, so I'm sure it was some sort of "keep up with everybody" movement.06:23
* raylu sees06:24
jmd9qs_anyone know a good channel for audio/video support?06:24
spasticteapotHow do I run a ".x86" file? It's ./fubar.x86 in the command line, right?06:24
Vozivso like configuring the nameservers on the server itself, so it can query an external NS?06:24
Roastedrxs - but like I said, I just dont get how I was autodetect and BAM, now I need alsa. Unless I WAS alsa and it somehow reset itself to autodetect, which I cant see happening. Ah well.06:24
Flannelsaler: right, but do you see 'admin'?06:24
tenXVoziv: exactly06:24
Flannelmib_5860bsoq: http://www.winehq.org/download/deb  the second part (trusting the repository) will solve that issue06:24
VozivtenX::: Alright, I'll get right on it, thanks for putting up with me :)06:25
salerFLannel,i found adm06:25
ksa-24im wireless to void06:25
rxssaler: are you able to  gain admin preveliges ?06:25
tenXVoziv: no problem, wonder if that nonsense could be any help06:25
Flannelsaler: That's not the same.  Is this the same user that you created during the install?06:25
mib_5860bsoqok thx Flannel lemme give it ashot06:25
VozivtenX::: I'll let you know how I make out06:26
salerFlannel , icreate "ad"06:26
Flannelsaler: Right, so this is a new user?06:26
tenXVoziv: as for my small setups with bind - i succeeded setting up bind for the systems to be defined but still defined a nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf06:26
=== leonut is now known as leonut2
idea4gudhow do i check available wireless networks06:26
=== leonut2 is now known as leonut
Flannelsaler: Right, you'll need to log out, go to your old user, and do sudo adduser ad admin (where 'ad' is the username of your new user)06:27
mrhany ideas anyone?06:27
Dracie_idea4gud, are you using gnome?06:28
tenXVoziv: through distribution given root domain servers, bind probably works its way06:28
raylumrh apt-get or aptitude?06:28
Logomachistraylu: It worked! I have my first Linux distro up and running.06:28
mrhraylu: apt-get06:28

ubottuLogomachist: Glad you made it! :-)06:28
idea4gudif that what you refer to06:28
tenXmrh: why apt-get?06:28
raylumrh: have you tried aptitude, then?06:29
VozivtenX::: alright, I'll keep that in mind, is it in resolv.conf or net?06:29
mib_5860bsoqFlannel: ok tt worked .. I got the key for budgetdedicated and installed it06:29
rayluLogomachist: what he said.06:29
mib_5860bsoqFlannel: thanks06:29
mrhtenX: all I know right now06:29
peepsalotwhat is the advantage of aptitude over apt-get?06:29
mrhraylu: no, I haven't06:29
Flannelpeepsalot: there is none06:29
Flannelpeepsalot: aptitude will give you a TUI if you run it with no arguments.  So if you prefer a GUI and only have ssh, you can have one06:29
U-b-u-n-t-uanyone know a good vid converter for ubuntu?06:29
rayluFlannel: i thought aptitude kept track of automatically installed dependencies?06:29
raylupeepsalot, Flannel: also, don't forget about the super cow powers06:30
tenXmrh: okay. back in the days i used apt-get. at one point one was told to use aptitude. presently apt-get seems to be more encouraged. for whatever reasons06:30
Flannelraylu: apt does too now.06:30
rayluFlannel: oh. but apt-get lies about its super cow powers06:30
rayluFlannel: clearly a bug.06:30
Flannelraylu: Clearly offtopic ;)06:30
rayluit's related :(06:31
mrhtenX: I see. Also, when I try to open synaptic through the GUI it opens up and crashes (shuts down) a second later06:31
tenXin between aptitude was said to resolve dependencies better06:31
usr13mrh: I dono but, From: http://www.deanlee.cn/linux/apt-get-segmentation-faulty-tree/  "rm /var/cache/apt/*.bin"06:31
tenXmrh: as for me i'd never use a GUI for that06:31

shamshow can i gzip a file with gzip command?06:32
rxssaler: ?!06:32
Flannelsaler: Which command did you do exactly?06:33
mrhtenX: I like the CL but still mostly use the GUI06:33
spasticteapotDoes anyone here know how to run Enemy Territory?06:33
spasticteapotOr at least how to run a .x86 file?06:33
Flannelshams: You usually use tar in conjunction with gzip, is that what you want to do? tar and zip? or just zip?06:33

mrhI am going to try the solution in the link that USR13 kindly provided06:35

tenXmrh: yeah i like aptitude/apt-get comfort. for my own desktops i use gentoo06:35
rxstenx: i like emerge better :)06:35
Flannelshams: Just gzip [file]06:35
raylutenX: then perhaps you would be interested in adding colors to aptitude?06:35
SoorlagHI all.. ive a problem: my micro is only recording when its turned to be heard.. if i mute it it does not work.. why is that?06:36
roger_i right click in nautilus and there is option to create archive, maybe that be lil easier way, just an idear06:36
=== dragon_flam is now known as c_webkit
rxsSoorlag: where do you mute and unmute ur mic ?06:37
tenXrxs: so do i but maybe i have not read into aptitudes man pages deep enough. determining to run specific versions of a package i just love the files in /etc/portage06:37

rxsSoorlag: commandline ? or the gui :(06:37
tenXraylu: yeah sure! as long as its not more than 16 colors? ;)06:38
Soorlagrxs gui06:38
ksa-24rxs (wireless to void since it never installed the system (ubuntu)06:38
rxstenX: yes, i like portage and ebuilds .. but I dont have the patience to build gentoo from scratch and my desktop has been abused much :) .. hence start with sabyon pod and recompile impotant libs :)06:38
rxsSoorlag: are you comfortable working with terminal ? then I can help you quick06:39
Soorlagrxs kinda06:39
Soorlagrxs should be fine06:39

tenXrxs: sabyon pod?06:39
Soorlagrxs jop06:39
mrhI shall be back06:40
rxsSoorlag: good .. now do you see mic ?06:40
Soorlagrxs this is where i mut/unmute06:40
Eber__guys... i'm running 8.10... i can't install curl-dev... when i hit apt-get install culr-dev it says the package doesn't exists... what do I have to do?!?06:40
Soorlagrxs thought thats kinda an gui06:40
=== Eber__ is now known as Eber
Dr_willis!find curl06:40

rxsSoorlag: do you see mic boost ? press m to mute unmute it .. and use arrow keys tomove about .. and use tab to go between different sttings .. out in and both06:41
tenXDr_willis: still an authority that man..06:41
Dr_willisEber,  i woudl guess ya got the package name wrong..   try an apt-cache search curl ?06:41
rxsSoorlag: yes kind of gui .. but its better organized than the alsa-mixer-gui ...06:41
rxstenX: yes sabyon pod06:42
tenXrxs: not "yes", what is it? ;)06:42
rxsksa-24: is ur system detecting ur card ?06:42
nickrudEber, you need libcurl3-gnutls-dev06:42
Soorlagrxs hm.. thatb does not quite solve the problem06:43
rxstenX: Sabayon is a gentoo derivative as u already know, and the pod is a thin version of sabayon which normally comes loaded with all the apps and about 12 gigs when expanded ..06:43
Ebernickrud: uhmm, right! i'll try that!06:43
Soorlagrxs its just less loud, but still not recording when muted06:43
tenXrxs: thx for that info, i didnt know. dont care too much about distro variations.06:44
ryanCHi cannot believe how buggy and bad looking KDE 4 is now :(06:44
rxsSoorlag:.. wait .. and do you see other places that mentions mic ? do you see 00 over mic or a green colored space ?06:44
Ebernickrud: can i get libcurl4 ? i seems that it is the only one available...06:44
Dr_willis  thin  12 gigs06:44
Dr_willisHmm.. thats a odd definition of thin. :)06:44
tenXrxs: never have the time for that06:44
Soorlagrxs 0006:44
nickrudEber, hm? intrepid? I have libcurl3-gnutls installed (very vanilla installation)06:44
ryanCHeverytime i end X11, it starts back up, how do i prevent it from doing so?06:44
rxstenX: I like my distro thin ~ 3- 3.5 G max.. hence always go from the thinnest and build over ... so the pod when installed is about 2 G06:45
Dr_willisryanakca,  thats kdm/gdm restarting X.. stop the kdm/gdm service06:45
Flannelsaler: what's with all of the blank lines?06:45
rxsSoorlag : so its not MM on any of them ...06:45
ryanCHDr_willis: with the "ps" command?06:45

Flannelsaler: Did something go wrong during the install? did it finish without errors?06:48
nickrudEber, and why not use the lighttpd from the repos ?06:48

daredeviltherebingungaja: use command usermod07:06
tenXchristoz: dd if=/dev/zero the partitions to be deleted?07:06
daredeviltherethat would help07:06

nickrudchristoz, what do you plan on doing with the ubuntu partition?07:08
nickrudedwardchuajh, I read back, and see you weren't talking about the package lists per se. I ended up turning off tracker (the indexer) completely in 8.1007:09
maraboutcan anyone help me figure where my HD space has gone. I'm missing about 15gb07:09
daredevilthereLtL: No problem i m still learning all the commands i use07:09
slim__Hi Ubuntu. How can I change my mouse cursor? The options are not where they're supposed to be in the mouse menu.07:09
nickrudmarabout, is that about 5% of the total space?07:09
tenXmarabout: man du07:09
LtLdaredevilthere: i totally forgot usermod, doh07:09
daredevilthereLtL: Oh07:09
rxschristoz: you can .. just install ubuntu / in a separate partition and .. mount the home as home while installing .. but do not mark as format the drive07:09
edwardchuajhnickrud, so will that help?07:10
rxsmarabout: have you tried looking with gparted ?07:10
maraboutnickrud: no more than that. Contents is using 3gb free space is 64gb HD total is 8007:10
nickrudedwardchuajh, by turning off the tracker, I meant disabling that quick search completely07:10
Kuninwhat version of Xorg does 8.10 use?07:10
slim__How can I change my mouse cursor style?07:10
bingungajarxs: both username and password07:11
christoznickrud, i was womndering if it is possible to extend the home's partitions adding to it space from the unistalled partiotion where the ubuntu's filesystem is now exists07:11
maraboutrxs: no I have not I need to check if it is installed on my system unless it is installed by default (in Hardy)...07:11
bingungajadaredevilthere: how can i do it ?07:11
RonPauljumping right in here:  what can i use to mount .img files?07:11
christoz(i know my english are poor)07:11
rxsmarabout: if not install using $sudo apt-get install gparted07:12
LtLslim__: X.Org X Server 1.5.207:12
daredeviltherebingungaja: sudo usermod --login NEW_LOGIN07:12
rxs!gparted | marabout07:12
ubottumarabout: gparted is a !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php07:12
edwardchuajhnickrud: how do i go about doing that?07:12
bingungajadaredevilthere: let me try it first07:12
nickrudchristoz, sure, you can use gparted to delete the ubuntu partition, move the home partition, then extend the home to the rest of the space07:12
edwardchuajhnickrud, i tried reinstalling synaptic but the "quick search" is still broken07:12
maraboutactually the weird things is that contents size keeps growing. It was 3gb now its at 4.1gb and I have no files whatsoever except the (hardy) install07:12
slim__LtL:  what does that mean?07:12
LtLslim__: sorry wrong nick07:12
bingungajadaredevilthere: do i need to restart with this ? and this change both login and password ?07:13
daredeviltherebingungaja: if u do not understand c its help usermod --help07:13
nickrudedwardchuajh, two different things07:13
LtLKunin: 8.10 uses X.Org X Server 1.5.207:13
edwardchuajhnickrud, oh?07:13
daredeviltherebingungaja: no this changes just the login name than use passwd command to change the password07:13
LtLslim__: i answered you instead of someone else.07:13
nickrudedwardchuajh, yes. The quick search bar is run by tracker, which is a disk indexing program. synaptic is a package manager07:14
bingungajadaredevilthere: ok i try it first, thx07:14
nickrudedwardchuajh, anyway, system->prefs->sessions , untick tracker and tracker applet07:14

crdlbKunin: in that case, you'll need to talk to nvidia about their buggy driver or continue using hardy :/ 169.12 is probably not compatible with intrepid's kernel and/or xorg07:39
macoclick170: its called Hardware Drivers in newer versions07:39

rxsmarabout: have u hence unlocked the keyring ?07:53
Flannelrxs, marabout: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NetworkManager#Automatic%20Keyring, use the second ('how to reset the password') to set it to something known (presumably your login password)07:53

UbuntuUser_hi all07:54

ksbalajiWith super ubuntu, someone mentioned that regular updates is messy. We have to install and do a bit of tinkering to enable updates.08:02
A[D]minSadam7 yes08:02
adam7A[D]minS: that's not grepping :) cat * > fileename08:03

Lou_Is there a way to start x-chat-gnome from the console with a command to join several channels?08:03
_anurxs : i can't copy them in mIRC08:03

adam7Trenter: system -> prefs -> appearance -> visual effects08:03
rxs_anu: i get what your sayin .. brb08:03
mib_ggaaciaj@Newbie  you should try ubuntu studio08:04

maraboutrxs: now that I am back in the machine I guess I should install ssh for future problems? would that be "apt-get install ssh"  ?08:04
mib_ggaaciajfor better appearence08:04
Trenterubuntu studio?08:04
ksbalajisidney__, yeah! your opinion then will be of much use here!08:04

rxs_anu: install  xfonts-intl-chinese08:05
bingungajaadam7: thx08:05
mib_ggaaciajyaa , its appearance is awesome08:05
ksbalajisidney__, one information - you get hold of a latest superubuntu torrent file and then download. It will be faster than from a single site.08:05
maraboutrxs: okay will do. Didnt fully get the keyring psswrd thing but it sounds like for security purposes it might be a good idea to have different psswrd for log in and for keyring. Is that about right?08:05
jaapvisserLukaz: don t know exactly what you mean but you can hit : ALT + F2 and type the name of a program to launch it08:06
sidney__ksbalaji_. just hope it's worth the trouble of removing a hard drive to install a dvd08:06
TrenterBaz: There ain't compiz configuraton manager in synaptic package manager08:06
adam7marabout: yes, but you will then have to enter both the login password and the keyring password on login IIRC08:06
adam7Trenter: there is08:06
adam7Trenter: compizconfig-settings-manager08:06

ksbalajisidney__, since it is live bootable, you need not remove your existing OS. Check up the site info before installing. Sorry I forgot the site link.08:07
sleepy_catnew song by backstreet boyz08:07
ross`it doesnt work because the /boot/grub isnt the same as /media/disk/boot/grub08:07
