TorgotonHey all. How can I tell which video driver xubuntu is using at the moment? (My video performance seems slow and I suspect it is using VESA.)01:03
aaroninfidelhow can I use xcalib with xfce?01:23
penguincentralhow do i change the keyboard layout in xubuntu?01:25
charlie-tcapenguincentral: applications -> Settings -> Settings Manager -> Keyboard01:26
charlie-tcaaaroninfidel: Install it using Applications -> System -> Synaptic Package Manager01:28
aaroninfidelcharlie-tca, I am using a macbook pro 3,1 and I have to configure it manually, I don't know how to use the custom profile...01:31
charlie-tcaI don't know enough about Macs to help with that.01:31
charlie-tcaTorgoton: It is given in /var/log/xorg.0.log ; I am looking for something easier01:33

Torgotonthanks, charlie-tca\02:22
Torgotoncharlie-tca: Seems I was wrong. It at least identifies the correct video chip... it's probably just me, and this old PIII laptop has always been this slow.02:25
charlie-tcano problem. Just gotta keep trying.02:26
TorgotonWell, with that sorted out, I'd like to use acpi, but the BIOS is dated 1999. If I add acpi=force to the kernel params, the machine locks up during boot.02:26
TorgotonShould I try again, then capture /var/log/messages? (messages.0 after a reboot, right?)02:26
charlie-tcaCan't do anything with it, most likely.02:27
charlie-tcaI got two of them, both pre-199802:28
TorgotonI know ACPI works with the machine on Fedora... but I'm trying to switch. I'd like ACPI for suspend/resume and battery functions.02:28
Torgotonoooh. Just got a new kernel for jaunty. Trying acpi=force on that.02:29
Torgotonanother problem fixed: The new kernel boots with acpi=force. Two for two.02:31
Torgoton...but suspend doesn't work. bah.02:32
charlie-tcaBut it could by the time Jaunty goes final02:37
TorgotonI suppose... Something's not right: it won't power off after a shutdown either. hm.02:40
sml1226anybody know where I can talk specifically about ps3 xubuntu?03:25
sml1226if not can anybody tell me a dock that is compatible with 9.04 and a ppc processor?03:26
sml1226what ver you using?03:36
sml1226helloooooooooooo! :)03:40
ubottuIt's the middle of the night in the US and Europe, and surrounds.  This means that a lot of people are likely asleep, therefore there are less potential people who can answer your question.  Please be patient, and consider asking at a time when more people will be awake.  This is particularly true in the quieter channels.03:41
sml1226what r u in eur?03:41
sml1226i live in IL and its only about 9:4503:42
zoredachedoesn't really matter, the point is that sometimes you need to be patient03:42
zoredacheparticularly when you are asking about an obscure issue03:43
sml1226well i am just wondering? since u r here now can u help me or r u wasting time talking about it being late???03:44
Torgotonwho's wasting time, sml122603:44
sml1226anybody that is just coming here to say be patient its late not to help and talk03:45
Torgotonfrom what I read, they are trying to help.03:45
zoredacheI am trying to encourage you to be less annoying about waiting for an answer...  If you just state your question and wait, perhaps someone might actually read your question instead if you saying hellloooo... and so on03:46
sml1226well that was just to see if somebody would respond to that instead of my question03:47
sml1226not to sound impatient03:47
zoredachesml1226: so you are the one that is wasting our time then?03:47
sml1226i guess u could take it that way but since i have ppl talking now maybe those ppl could answer my question?03:48
sml1226my first one that is03:48
Torgotonwhy don't you ask the real question instead?03:50
sml1226do you know where i can talk specifically about ps3 linux or 9.04?03:50
zoredachetry #ubuntu+1 for questions related to jaunty perhaps03:51
Torgotonor ask something about them here03:51
sml1226i want to use awn and apt-get (what i used in 8.04 and 8.10) won't work now and there is no new one for 9.04 yet that i know of. is there a dock for 9.04?03:53
sml1226remember that the ps3 is ppc though.03:53
sml1226if nothing i will try #ubuntu+103:54
sml1226also is it just #ubuntu+1 or is there a #xubuntu+1???03:54
zoredachefrom what I have seen ppc really isn't supported well for ubuntu.  I know it is not officially supported03:55
zoredachesml1226: why xubuntu?  awm isn't xfce?03:55
sml1226i used awn in 8.10 ppc03:56
sml1226but my copy of 8.10 was buggy so i upgraded03:56
sml12269.04 is missing compatibility as far as i know with most things but ill look in the other room to be sure03:59
zoredachesml1226: you could always look on http://packages.ubuntu.com/ or launchpad and see if you can find the maintainer, and try and contact them directly...04:03
sml1226Thank you! I got somebody telling me that its in repositories for 9.04 on #ubuntu+1 so ill find out more there.04:06

atgarsishello. got one quick question: how to turn-on/off the video-out thing/external monitor?12:54
TheSheepatgarsis: with xrand12:56
TheSheeptry xrand --help, it will show you how to use it12:57
atgarsisdoes work somehow...12:58
atgarsissays 'command not found'12:59
TheSheepwhat version of xuuntu do you have?13:00
atgarsisit's xrandr not xrand. 8.10 is my ver13:06
TheSheepah, sorry, you are right13:06

nikolamwhere do you find information about supoprted driver under linux/ubuntu?14:45
nikolamlike hcl list etc14:45
nikolamor just place where all hardware supported is listed etc14:45
ubottuFor lists of supported hardware on Ubuntu see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport - To help debugging and improving hardware detection, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingHardwareDetection14:46
nikolamknome, great. Only thing some pages are empty etc. Maybe some more linux-general one? Where you go when you want to buy new scanner or modem ot printer or.. whatever for your linux box?14:58
knomei ask my friend or check devices one by one if they are linux compatible14:59
knomean item in HCL is way less than reading forums and seeing which problems people have had with that device in linux, if any15:00
nikolamYes thanks for the answer.15:05
nikolamI was just hoping we had some huge database etc.15:05
knomei think the problem with HCL's are that if a device works, nobody "normal" won't add the device into a hcl15:06
nikolamI don`t think I understood. if device works it is great to be added to some hcl. Why is that a problem.15:08
atgarsissorry, a bit off-topic, BUT does anyone have troubles with google.com at the moment?15:09
nikolamatgarsis, I have15:09
nikolamrefuses to give me pages.15:09
atgarsisme too15:09
nikolamTelling like all sites are bad to my computer15:10
nikolamI was always saying that depending on only one search engine is a bad thing15:10
atgarsisit's probably google messing around not our computers, innit?15:10
knomeatgarsis, nikolam: ^15:11
nikolamatgarsis, google is a company for profit15:11
nikolamit was question of time for something like this to happen15:11
nikolamknome, thanks15:11
nikolamknome, I use seamonkey..15:11
nikolammaybe some petition to include that removal in google itself..15:12
nikolamOne day I wake upa nd world is changed to bad. Again..15:12
atgarsisany good alternative websearches?15:13
nikolamcuil? atgarsis15:21
nikolamthey changed it back to normal..15:24
nikolamseconds ago15:24
nikolambut now we got Forbidden message in every google search15:25
atgarsisi don't see any "forbidden message" thing. where is it?15:28
atgarsisdoes anybody know how can one configure tv-out adapter?15:28
nikolamatgarsis, they removed it again :)15:30
nikolamatgarsis, they seem so play hide and seek with us at google15:30
SiDigoogle's gone crazy, don't worry about the messages saying sites ain't safe15:32
nikolamSiDi, it is maybe great to have that feature. Maybe they can make it like users can turn it on and off etc.  Also one part of me was hoping google changed some of its policy15:41
nikolamAnd gave me excuse to fine alternatives15:41
SiDiwell it most of the time works well and actually saved me once or two15:42

euti'm having trouble trying to change the brightness level on my laptops monitor. in the past whenever the fn keys werent supported i'd just echo 100 > /proc/acpi/video/VID/LCD0/brightness and it would go to the maximum level. but thats not working for me now. any ideas?16:14
euti'm only experiencing this problem after upgrading from 8.04 to 8.10 (fresh install)16:14
j1mceut: that command works for me, but i must execute the command as root.16:18
j1mcnot even sudo will do it16:18
eutthats what i'm doing16:18
j1mchm... not sure what the issue may be, unfortunately16:19
eutmy laptop is a lenovo x61 if that helps any.16:19
j1mcinteresting... i'm on a t6016:19
eutwhat is the output of your cat brightness?16:20
eut(the levels)16:20
j1mclevels:  100 30 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 10016:20
j1mccurrent: 10016:20
eutmine looks like: levels: 100 100 20 25 30 25 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 85 90 10016:20
j1mcas we can see, my cat is very bright, but my cat does not have as many levels of brightness as your cat.16:24
j1mc... sorry i can't be of much more help16:24
eutthats ok.16:24
euti find the first 2 100's odd16:24
eutcd /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video016:31
eutmax_brightness: 1516:31
eutwhat is your max_brightness?16:34
j1mceut: glad you found it.  :)16:35
eutbut thats not a solution :/16:36
euteven if i modify brightness and actual_brightness changes it still doesnt change brightness of the screen16:36
euti think that max_brightness should be 100, not 1516:36
j1mcroot@lighbulb:/sys/devices/virtual/backlight/acpi_video0# echo 6 > brightness16:38
j1mcroot@lighbulb:/sys/devices/virtual/backlight/acpi_video0# echo 6 > brightness16:38
j1mcmy max brightness is 716:38
j1mcand entering the above command does work to change my brightness16:38
j1mcroot@lighbulb:/sys/devices/virtual/backlight/acpi_video0# echo 5 > brightness16:38
j1mcbrings it even lower16:38
j1mceut: why don't you just use the function keys, though?16:39
eutthey have no effect16:39
j1mcthey do work for me16:39
eutby any chance did you do a fresh install of 8.10 or did you upgrade from 8.04?16:40
charlie-tcaeut: I thought they fixed that with an update to 8.10. Did you apply the updates already?16:40
eutcharlie-tca, yes16:40
SiDieut: in /proc/acpi/video/blabla did you try to cat brightness ?16:43
SiDithe max value is usually 70 not 10016:43
eutit reflects the value that i set it to16:43
eutbut the screen's brightness doesnt change16:44
SiDidon't know then :/16:45
eutvery weird16:45
eutwell i have to go now, but thanks for your time16:45

SiDiin fact i'm using latex for my docs now :)21:23
owen1SiDi: is there lightweight alternative to oo?21:23
SiDiowen1: yes. try gnumeric and abiword21:24
SiDiit's really uberlight and sufficient if you need only the very basic functions.21:24
sml1226just for word processing ill stay with abiword cuz im lazy and its installed21:24
owen1SiDi: but gnumeric requires gnome, no?21:24
SiDiowen1: i don't think so21:24
SiDignu refers to gnu, not gnome21:24
SiDiyou're under GNU/Linux ;)21:24
sml1226gnumeric is already installed in xubu isnt it?21:25
SiDii think it is21:25
SiDii use it when i want to check an .ods. it's cool to have it opening instantly on a 800mhz cpu :)21:25
sml1226i have it and havent manually added it but im in 9.0421:25
sml1226it still opens instantly on a 600mhz cpu21:26
sml1226(my old celeron)21:26
owen1SiDi: it's say on the website that it's part of the gnome desktop. not sure what it means.21:26
owen1SiDi: i'll give it a shot. let's hope it's not going to install all the gnome libraries.21:26
SiDiowen1: sorry then ive said something wrong :)21:27
SiDiit opens instantly tho, don't worry owen121:27
owen1SiDi: no worries..21:27
SiDicorrect me if i'm wrong ... alt+F3 is not used under xubuntu ?21:28

Moodanyone use x11vnc on xubuntu? does the server + client machines need to have the same X server?21:46
SiDiMood: i think you can use vnc for windoz too, so i guess its not needed to have the same X serv21:47
MoodSiDi: so i can use vnc to connect, let's say, a winXP machine to view the desktop of a xubuntu desktop?21:47
Moodor any mix of win/osx/*nix for that matter21:48
kahrnyou can also use XDCMP21:49
SiDiMood: you can as long as you have a VNC client/server for this OS21:49

caspix1i'm not sure is it possible...22:20
caspix1i think it's not...22:20
Jessica123i think it is.  there are various web references to doing exactly this.  unfortunately, there are little or no details22:21
Jessica123anyone in here who can help?22:21
ubottuA/V software is available, however read this to understand why Linux does not have a virus problem: http://librenix.com/?inode=2122:25
caspix1why don't u just install linux to your friend?22:26
Jessica123TheSheep:  thx for the info.  It was a friend who got bit.  they don't know safe computing for shit.  I realize that linux is safer, but I'm trying to dig them out of this hole22:26
TheSheepI was hoping that would link to some virus scanner22:26
TheSheepfrom what I know, most linux virus scanners are for mail22:27
kahrnyou can use clam-av22:27
Jessica123clam is for email, isn't it?22:27
