sml1226favorite file manager???00:41
sml1226other than thunar?00:42
sml1226bsc sucks and thunar is screwed up on my machine00:44
zoredachevifm?  I suppose you where looking for a gui though00:44
sml1226going to try nautilus00:44
sml1226what do you think of that?00:44
sml1226yeah needs a gui00:45
zoredacheI don't really have an opinion00:45
sml1226have you tried nautilus?00:46
zoredachenautilus is the standard file manager you get with a gnome install of ubuntu isn't it?00:47
sml1226think so00:47
sml1226havent used ubuntu though just xubuntu00:47
sml1226i think nautilus will be fine (still not fully installed) so how do you set it as the default file manager00:49
zoredacheif it is the only one running, then it is the default00:51
sml1226well thunar is installed and default now so how do i change that???00:51
sml1226it might do it but it hasn't yet00:53
sml1226nautilus doesn't work either00:59
nikolamsml1226, pcmanfm01:02

nikolami start pcmanfm and other apps with one click with quicklauncher xfce panel plugin.01:03
nikolamof course01:04
sml1226cool will try01:04
sml1226how to set as default01:04
nikolamwhy should you set it as default?01:05
nikolamStart it with on eclick from quicklauncher01:05
sml1226thunar is screwed up and won't work01:06
nikolamit works but have issues.01:06
nikolamwhat is your main problem with thunar01:06
sml1226there is a bug in my ver that keeps it from starting01:06
nikolamonly catch with pcmanfm is that it does not support trash can01:07
sml1226cant access anything with it01:07
nikolameverything you delet is like using rm01:07
nikolamsml1226, what xubuntu u use , version and 32/64bit?01:07
sml12268.10 ppc+ps301:07
nikolamsml1226, also try to use krusader.01:08
sml1226isnt krusader for kde?01:08
nikolamppc :) nice i didnt know they still make one, since i heard that ppc in not supported yet01:09
sml1226dont really need or want to column01:09
nikolamsml1226, did you find soulution to expand RAM to more then 256Mb?01:09
nikolamu can try it. it pulls just kde libs upon install etc.01:10
sml1226and actually the ps3 restricts your use to 192MB01:10
nikolam? 192 ??01:10
sml1226it keeps the rest for itself01:10
sml1226not really sure01:10
nikolamI know about other 256mb ati restrictions and 2 spu restrictions but 192?01:10
nikolamdo you have some software builded espacially for cell?01:11
sml1226yeah it keeps the 9th spu and all but 192mb for running the ps3 w/o apps or oses01:11
sml1226nothing special for cell yet01:11
nikolamI was thinking of using ps3 as main machine 3 years ago. but since there was no way to expand ran i abandoned idea. But it is great to use ps3 that way01:12
sml1226even with the minimal RAM it blows my pc away01:12
nikolamps3 could be even greater machine if one could use more ram with it. etc01:12
sml1226granted the pc is total crap01:12
nikolamyes, shure :)01:13
nikolamok so,01:13
sml1226yah gpu access and 1gb of RAM and this thing would fly01:13
nikolamI use 8.04 LTS 64bit with amdx2 and 2gigs01:13
nikolamyes but i was thinking more 4 gigs and full gpu access, yes01:14
sml1226had 8.04 on my pc but went back to xp because i needed to print01:14
nikolamlike home computer it would blow away01:14
sml1226well those 8 cores at full speed can render some crazy graphics w/o the gpu01:15
nikolamBUT Sony pricks did what they did. But XB360 loosers even can`t start linux. microsoft coded it so it can use only approved software by microsoft01:15
nikolamyes but 192 mb..01:15
sml1226yeah that sucks01:15
nikolambut even with it, it is ok to use linux for office, media, surfing and everything01:16
sml1226yeah ps3 browser sucks ansd isn't fullscreen so 1080p firefox is amazing01:17
nikolamI was using p3-733 with 256mb with xubuntu before. I was content with it.01:17
nikolamI still have it running on 8.04 lts now.01:17
sml1226wish it gave access to the music and pic folders on other partition though01:17

forcesjust say it03:12
mental14i just build a new comp, asus m2a-vm mobo with a amd 64 6000 x2 cpu 3.1ghz and xubuntu only detects 1000mhz03:13
forcesthat's the front side bus03:15
forceslike this03:15
forcesSysInfo: Linux | Dual Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270   @ 1.60GHz 1600.000 MHz | Mem: 398/1021M [||||||||||] | Diskspace: 141G Free: 79G | Bogomips: 6384.01 | Screen Res: 1024x600 | Procs: 140 |   | Up:  | eth0: In: 0.00M Out: 0.00M03:15
mental14ok so /proc/cpuinfo only reports fronside bus?03:16
forcesuse pastebin and show me the reports03:17
mental14how do i do that?03:20
forcesmental14, cat /proc/cpuinfo03:21
forcesthen paste in pastebin03:21
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)03:21
mental14ok i pastebin'ed it03:26
forcesmental14, it's ok03:29
forceslook mine03:29
mental14ya i have a acer aspire one 1.6ghz 2 x 800mhz atom cpu, but the laptop shows two 800mhz cores, therefore my anthlon 6000 should show 2 3100mhz cores but only shows two 1000mhz cores03:33
nikolamI am interesting in that how I can update CPU speed to Xfce (and gnome) panel plugins to display actual CPU speed. I overclocked CPU and I want to see real info on panel instead of CPU default info.03:37
nikolamI have amdx2 cpu03:37
forcesI thinks everything is ok, I have another laptop with a centrino duo 1,83 Ghz03:40
forcesand /proc/cpuinfo show me 1000mhz too03:40
forcesbut it's ok03:40
nikolamI guess I should change some cpu info somewhere to reflect new frequencies but I am supprised that MHZ cpu speed was not read from actual machine but from that what cpiud says03:41
nikolamforces, That mught be due to speed  stepping enabled.03:41
mental14cool thanks forces03:42
nikolamIt actually works on lower cpu speed and if it is needed, cpu spid gets higher (ondemand)03:42
nikolammental14, install xfapplet and use it to put cpufreq monitor to panel. displays temperature, cpu speed and you can change speed you want or put it on default`s ondemand or powersave03:44

charlie-tcaIt is probably giving some kind of messages?14:17
TuxNo. It just  boots up text based.14:25

InvaderZimall: hello!22:09
charlie-tcaYes, many are here. Just type your question or issue in and if somebody can help, they will. Many of us are working all the time22:09
charlie-tcahello InvaderZim22:09
InvaderZimall: I was wondering if anyone knew if the Listen Music Player in Xubuntu 8.10 can play FLAC?22:10
InvaderZimcharlie-tca:  hi charlie22:10
Guest8478Thanks charlie. i hope someone can help me. i'm trying to install xubuntu and i get the boot options of safe graphic mode, or non-acpi. i think i need both at once!22:10
charlie-tcaYou might need both, Guest847822:11
Guest8478non-acpi works for a few minutes, a crosshair cursor appears after a while, but then the screen goes blank and never returns22:11
Guest8478can you tell me how to enable both options at once charlie?22:11
charlie-tcaJust hit F6, cursor to the end of the line and type in acpi=off then hilite safe graphics22:12
Guest8478thanks! when do i hit f6?22:12
charlie-tcabefore you type that, I think you need f6 to bring the options line up on screen. Esc gets rid of any extra stuff in the way after you hit it22:13
Guest8478well thanks a lot, i'll go and try that now22:14
charlie-tcaGood luck22:14
InvaderZimdoes anybody know if Listen Music Player in the latest Xubuntu release can play FLAC audio tracks?22:14
charlie-tcaInvaderZim: I don't know enough to answer you22:14

zoredacheI don't know about the version installed on intrepid, but the main project appears to support flac - http://www.listen-project.org/wiki/Features22:20
