nikolam nikolam nikolam zoredache, terminating gui of an app does not kill app on most cases. 00:16 one should use ps -A | grep app to find app (or in top) and use kill or kill -9 command to kill it 00:17 or with system monitor gui 00:17 has anyone checked out the ubuntu pocket guide yet? 00:25 (http://ubuntupocketguide.com) 00:25 favorite file manager??? 00:41 other than thunar? 00:42 bsc sucks and thunar is screwed up on my machine 00:44 vifm?  I suppose you where looking for a gui though 00:44 going to try nautilus 00:44 what do you think of that? 00:44 yeah needs a gui 00:45 I don't really have an opinion 00:45 have you tried nautilus? 00:46 nautilus is the standard file manager you get with a gnome install of ubuntu isn't it? 00:47 think so 00:47 havent used ubuntu though just xubuntu 00:47 i think nautilus will be fine (still not fully installed) so how do you set it as the default file manager 00:49 if it is the only one running, then it is the default 00:51 well thunar is installed and default now so how do i change that??? 00:51 it might do it but it hasn't yet 00:53 nautilus doesn't work either 00:59 sml1226, pcmanfm 01:02 starts in a second 01:02 i start pcmanfm and other apps with one click with quicklauncher xfce panel plugin. 01:03 gui? 01:04 of course 01:04 cool will try 01:04 how to set as default 01:04 why should you set it as default? 01:05 Start it with on eclick from quicklauncher 01:05 thunar is screwed up and won't work 01:06 it works but have issues. 01:06 what is your main problem with thunar 01:06 there is a bug in my ver that keeps it from starting 01:06 only catch with pcmanfm is that it does not support trash can 01:07 cant access anything with it 01:07 everything you delet is like using rm 01:07 sml1226, what xubuntu u use , version and 32/64bit? 01:07 8.10 ppc+ps3 01:07 sml1226, also try to use krusader. 01:08 isnt krusader for kde? 01:08 ppc :) nice i didnt know they still make one, since i heard that ppc in not supported yet 01:09 dont really need or want to column 01:09 2* 01:09 sml1226, did you find soulution to expand RAM to more then 256Mb? 01:09 nope 01:09 u can try it. it pulls just kde libs upon install etc. 01:10 and actually the ps3 restricts your use to 192MB 01:10 ? 192 ?? 01:10 it keeps the rest for itself 01:10 not really sure 01:10 I know about other 256mb ati restrictions and 2 spu restrictions but 192? 01:10 do you have some software builded espacially for cell? 01:11 yeah it keeps the 9th spu and all but 192mb for running the ps3 w/o apps or oses 01:11 nothing special for cell yet 01:11 I 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 way 01:12 even with the minimal RAM it blows my pc away 01:12 ps3 could be even greater machine if one could use more ram with it. etc 01:12 granted the pc is total crap 01:12 yes, shure :) 01:13 ok so, 01:13 yah gpu access and 1gb of RAM and this thing would fly 01:13 I use 8.04 LTS 64bit with amdx2 and 2gigs 01:13 yes but i was thinking more 4 gigs and full gpu access, yes 01:14 had 8.04 on my pc but went back to xp because i needed to print 01:14 like home computer it would blow away 01:14 well those 8 cores at full speed can render some crazy graphics w/o the gpu 01:15 BUT Sony pricks did what they did. But XB360 loosers even cant start linux. microsoft coded it so it can use only approved software by microsoft 01:15 yes but 192 mb.. 01:15 yeah that sucks 01:15 but even with it, it is ok to use linux for office, media, surfing and everything 01:16 yeah ps3 browser sucks ansd isn't fullscreen so 1080p firefox is amazing 01:17 I was using p3-733 with 256mb with xubuntu before.

It just requests name again. 13:49 Does anybody know why when I boot into Xubuntu why it could be going into what I call DOS like and my brother calls "Text based"? 14:14 It is probably giving some kind of messages? 14:17 No. It just  boots up text based. 14:25 hi guys Tux os my brother 14:26 is 14:26 how do you know if there is no text? 14:26 There is text. 14:26 there is text 14:26 What does the text say? 14:27 it says things  then over on the right of the screen it says "[ok]" 14:27 Too much to say.

It's doing it with the normal boot up screen then changes to text based. 14:31 The freezing only happened once. 14:31 And the text goes away and you get a login screen? 14:31 Once it just froze when loading the login screen like Windows does sometimes. 14:32 Yes. 14:32 hes in right now actully 14:32 Sounds like a slow system to me. 14:32 Why? 14:32 How? 14:32 512MB RAM? 14:33 504. 14:33 My 400MHz and 866Mhz both show that text before login 14:33 I'm running Xubuntu. 14:33 How do I find my system specs in Xubuntu? 14:33 It's part of the startup process 14:33 how do we cheek system specs in Linux 14:33 ok so nothing like "dxdiag" in windows? 14:34 alienkid: lshw 14:34 lspci gives the hardware 14:34 ok 14:34 Intel Celeron 2.70 GHz. 14:38 mine is intel celeron CPU 440@2.00GHz 14:39 could that be it or is it his RAM? 14:39 Also, does anybody know why when I use the Mac4Lin Metacity theme it doesn't change my header? 14:41 It says 494 MiB of RAM. 14:41 anyone here that can help? 15:24 !question 15:25 Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily).
