box9hey - nothing happens when I press prnt scrn - is this normal for xubuntu?07:56
j1mcbox9: yeah, i think so08:07
j1mcbox9: i don't think that key is mapped by default somehow?  not sure how to do it myself, unfortunately.08:07
box9mm - just had a look at gnome-screenshot and it's part of a package which isn't installed08:08
box9I don't want to install it though incase the gnome components slow things down08:09
greatcaffeineHello, I just installed the Xubuntu 9.04 alpha, and I can't seem to reach the desktop...  After the login window, I just get a blank screen.  Any ideas?08:37
jarnosgreatcaffeine: That really seems to be alpha then :( I had similar problem with guest session with Xfce 4.6beta1, but it vanished after I changed session to Xfce in gdmsetup.08:46
greatcaffeinehehe, I was expecting it to be a little buggy, but I at least hoped to make it to the desktop.08:46
greatcaffeineApt tells me that there's an update for xfce4-session though, so I'll see if that helps anything.08:48

Pres-GasI was installing Ubu and throwing the xfce stuff on top of it so I can refer back to gnome for helping my inlaws, but I think I will switch them to xubu when next they need an upgrade.  Keeping it on Ubu 8.04 for now.14:45

jarnosI just segfaulted firefox in gdb (run by "firefox --debug"). What can you tell about the segfault in gdb?15:24
jarnosCan you get the name of the file in which segmentation fault happened?15:27
charlie-tcajarnos: yes, you can get the name. It is in the apport logs15:31
jarnoscharlie-tca: /var/log/apport.log is empty.15:33
jarnoscharlie-tca: I get some backtrace from gdb15:35
charlie-tcawhat about /var/crash15:35
jarnoscharlie-tca: nothing there. maybe because I ran firefox inside gdb.15:36
charlie-tcacould be.15:37
charlie-tcaYou can file a bug if you get a backtrace. Mozilla team won't work the bug without it15:38

dvdmhow can I make a application (like firefox) stay in one workspace?19:21
Pres-Gasdvdm, and have it open on THAT workspace on each start/login?19:22
dvdmPres-Gas: I do not mind where it is on startup...19:22
dvdmlike firefox, when I hit hyperlink in thunderbird19:22
vinnldvdm, it's not supposed to switch workspaces by itself in the first place19:22
dvdmthen firefox is moved to the workspace that thunderbird is running in19:23
dvdmI want firewof to stay in workspace #219:23
dvdmvinnl: it does not "all by itself", but like the example...19:23
vinnlWait, let me try to click a link in one desktop19:24
charlie-tcadvdm: add by hand to your ~/.config/xfce4/xfwm4/xfwm4rc file. You may have to create this file. "activate_action=none"19:25
charlie-tcaCheck the docs in /usr/share/xfce4/doc/C19:25
vinnlAh. it does indeed, odd19:25
charlie-tcaThat forces the windows to quit moving19:26
dvdmcharlie-tca: that look *exactly* like what I need... thanks19:28
charlie-tcano problem.19:29
dvdmit is actually even on the wiki!19:29

jon_snowi have a question: have Xubuntu 8.10 the same Network Manager of Ubuntu 8.10?20:49
Pres-Gasjon_snow, yes, it does20:50
jon_snowPres-Gas: sorry for my english. I want to know it because i want to install a Internet Key (model Huawei) and it in Ubuntu is possible20:51
Pres-Gasjon_snow, your english is fine, do not worry about that, we are all a team :)20:52
jon_snowok thanks20:52
jon_snowi like xfce :P and i like ubuntu20:53
jon_snowbut i like also zenwalk (xfce distro)20:53
Pres-Gasjon_snow, if you see documentation for that for Ubu, it should work in Xubu the same way...now if you used Kubuntu, it uses knetworkmanager which may be a bit different.20:54
jon_snowok thanks, Pres-Gas20:55
Pres-GasCome back if you still have issues with the Huawei device and hopefully someone here will be able to help out.20:56
glenndHi I have a question relating to screen resolution settings can you help?20:57
jon_snowPres-Gas: can you suggest me a good mirror to download Xub from torrent?20:57
jon_snowreleases.ubuntu.com/8.10 or other?20:58
Pres-GasWell, if you use the .torrent file, you can get that anywhere because it is small.  Then the bittorrent protocol will download the .iso file from all over the world.  So, releases.ubuntu.com would be fine for the torrent20:59
Pres-GasWhere you from, jon_snow?20:59
jon_snowsicily :D21:00
Pres-GasThere looks to be 5 mirrors in Italy if you choose to download the .iso directly.21:00
Pres-GasHey, Lolek_FM21:08
Lolek_FMdo you know anybody how i change or disable menu hide time when i open xfce menu ?21:11
bowgartHello I have a question regarding screen resolution settings21:36
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)21:39
bowgartCan you tell me how I can increase the resolution above 600x80021:44
ubottuThe X Window System is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart your X, type « sudo /etc/init.d/?dm restart » in a console - To fix screen resolution or other X problems: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution21:44
bowgartscreen resolution21:45
knomebowgart, maybe those links would help for beginning?21:45
Lolek_FMfor my question is not any command? :D21:45
jarnosWhere can you find information about installing development version of Xubuntu 9.04?21:45
knomeLolek_FM, i don't know what you are trying to say?21:46
ubottuJaunty Jackalope is the code for Ubuntu 9.04, due April 2009 - Lots of breakage between now and April - Please join #ubuntu+1 for discussion and support.21:46
knomejarnos, http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/jaunty/alpha-2/ ?21:47
knomejarnos, you can also select to upgrade to dev versions in synaptic21:48
knomejarnos, then update manager will notify you of new dev releases, like jaunty atm21:48
Lolek_FMknome: 1. open main menu, 2. wait around 10 seconds and menu is closed.  Do you know how i disable it? :)21:49
knomeLolek_FM, not really. why do you need such a long time?21:49
knomeLolek_FM, i mean, the timer should at least reset always when you move the mouse/press arrow keys21:50
Lolek_FMwhen i can not find application :)21:50
knomeLolek_FM, i'm not currently running a xubuntu machine, but this sounds really weird. are you sure you haven't clicked off-menu or sth?21:51
Lolek_FMno, key & mouse is ignored21:51
knomeLolek_FM, what do you mean by ignored?21:52
jarnosknome: How do you select to upgrade to dev versions in Synaptic?21:53
Lolek_FMi may move with cursor or pres key but menu is close..21:54
knomeLolek_FM, maybe ask JPohlmann once he gets here.21:55
knomejarnos, hard question, because i'm not running any system i can run synaptic on21:55
Lolek_FMknome: ok, thx21:56
knomejarnos, it might've also been in update-manager itself, but i doubt that.21:57
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes21:59
knomejarnos, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IntrepidUpgrades?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=intrepid_upgrade2.png22:00
