knomeif you want, you might try an older version or then the minimal cd00:00
ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD00:00
Pato1it is mostly a ram issue?00:00
knomeif you can upgrade your ram to something like 512, you are in a way better position00:01
knomethen i could suggest 9.04 for you00:01
Pato1does this type of instalation recognizes wpa2 wireless connections?00:01
knomeno problem, if the wifi card is supported00:02
Pato1ok, thanks00:02

MoochI just can't connect its begin to be a nightmare02:38
Moochpppconfig utility on my pc for some reason is not working02:38
MoochI am trying to get wvdial to work and no luck with that02:39
Moochbad enough my Usb PCI didn't work02:39
MoochI don't know if I should download gnome ppp or are there other options?02:41
Moochanyone have any suggestions?02:43
Moochany suggestions for dial up anyone?02:46
MoochI can't use ppconfig because something is wrong with the utility so and wvdial won't work because the terminal says Configuration does not specify a valid phone number Login name and paswword02:51
Moochcould it be because I have too many wvdial.conf files?02:51
MoochProbably major of you have broadband and dial up is porbably the last thing on your mind02:53
MoochI don't like dial up myself but I am stuck with it and the looks of it I wish I had broadband02:54
MoochBut if there is someone that can help me please let me know02:56
Moochwell ummmmm I guess no one wants to help I hate bother anyone but I am just trying resolve this issue so I can get gnome ppp02:58

dbdii407Why does xUbuntu 9 Just freeze? I wouldn't say freeze but will not let me click, drag, or move anything? (I can still type on the current window but that's it)03:12
sml1226Export GTK_MODULES=globalmenu-gnome in your profile.  HOW?  What does it mean?  To it or from it?03:17
sml1226Actually I am not sure thats the problem because it gives another option and it sort of works03:34
sml1226Instead of laying the menus on the panel like it should I get a drop-down menu with the menus in it.03:34
sml1226It works in the gnome panel but only partially in the xfce panel03:34
sml1226would exporting get it to work with xfce?03:34

GINZHi, I have installed the latest version of XUBUNTU from a bootable CD burnt from a torrent my son sent me. IT seemed to be fine , booted, logged in etc but the quit button just removed the task bars and left the desktop and icons .09:30
GINZI right clicked on empty spage and did applications/logout and got the shutdown panel. I chose restart, and it got past login to the bluey screen and hung there09:31
GINZ Any suggestions?09:31
GINZI used the red and black buttons oon the front of the tower to close down09:31
GINZ Next time I booted, it got past login to the blue screen and hung again09:32
GINZWould it make sense for me to get  the XUBUNTU dowonload on this Windows machine, Burn the bootable CD here and use it to reinstall?09:33
GINZOh are you here?09:49
SiDiGINZ, we're there yeh09:50
GINZI typed a problem here a few minutes ago09:50
SiDiso you get a blue login screen when logging in, now ?09:50
GINZyes that is correct09:50
GINZ I am typing on my XP machine09:51
SiDiit's likely this bug09:51
GINZThe login was normal but after that  it went straight to the pale bluey grey screen09:51
SiDiYeh, the session cannot fully load because of a bug in the opensource drivers, apparently09:52
SiDiGINZ, does Alt+F2 work on the blueish desktop ?09:52
SiDiif so, please type "xfce4-panel in it"09:52
GINZ I did see something during bootup about "fails cutoff" and "Acpi=force is required"09:53
SiDiI'm not the most experienced guy with those things (ie. i dont understand that bug :p) but i'll try to see with our developers if they can have a look09:53
GINZlt and F2 got me a "Run Program" panel09:54
GINZhmm did you mean the in it to be in that quote?09:56
SiDiOk, GINZ09:59
SiDitype xfce4-panel -r10:00
SiDiinside that run window10:00
SiDiand tell me if the panels popup :)10:00
GINZnothing  just returns to the panel10:01
GINZah  running xfce4-panel  does bring back the task bars10:02
GINZt only those, not the desktop10:02
SiDirun "xfdesktop --reload"10:03
SiDiim trying to find out all the things that need to be booted :p10:04
GINZnothing happens10:05
SiDixfdesktop alone then ?10:07
GINZyes that brought desktop up10:08
GINZSo is there a way to set these to work automatically or will I need to runo those two  things every time I boot up?10:12
GINZDo you also have any advice for getting the quit button to shut down the computer, instread of just hiding the taskbars?10:19
SiDiill write you a quick script that'll boot those two things10:20
SiDitry to see if there appears to be something "missing"10:20
SiDiGINZ, i think the quit button not working is more or less the same bug :]10:21
SiDiput the 5 lines of this file into a file named ".initrc" (dont forget the .)10:23
SiDiand then type chmod +x .initrc in a terminal10:23
SiDiit's a *dirty* workaround. When the bug will be fixed you'll have to remove it ;p10:24
GINZshall I need to put "sudo" in front of the "chmod "10:29
GINZDoes that file need to be in a particular part of the file system?10:33
GINZor just on desktop?10:33
_Pete_GINZ: it should be in your homedir10:39
GINZI followed these instructions. but got errors. please see http://paste.ubuntu.com/183542/11:04

premorphoshey im on a wifi office network and i want to see all computers and shared folders. question: how?12:48
premorphosis there some thing like "my network places" from windows in xubuntu?12:53
GINZPremorphos, In Places do you see anything that looks similar to Network places?12:54
GINZLook in Applications/ accessories and I think there is a networks thing there12:54
GINZthat may be where12:55
GINZLike you I know it from Windows12:55
premorphosGINZ: tnx for youre reply... but no thing like that.12:56
GINZMy Xubuntu is not yet set up so I cannot check for you12:56
GINZI think you 'll have to kust look into everything in Applications and Accessories maybe even system (but be careful there) and see if there is anything that looks like network or interneet12:58
premorphosyes that is the problem.. im so used windows.. what do you use and on what os12:58
premorphosto find network places12:58
GINZI know I was asking recently how to see the LAN and it is in there somewhere12:58
GINZI usually use Win XP12:58
GINZ but am setting up an old computer in Xubuntu on the LAN12:59
premorphosi got to say.. xubuntu sure rocks..13:00
GINZwell the newest upgrade has hit the rocks as far as I am concerned13:03
GINZgot a bug or maybe several13:04
GINZI am firing it up to see if I can remember where to look for the LAN13:05
GINZMy son told me in an email but all the emails have the same subject which makes it hopeless finding things13:05
GINZnah  I will have to reinstall the whole thing13:08
GINZwon;t open13:08
GINZbut I am sure it was in one of those menues13:09

ToStItOsIf my dial up modem initializes but then the terminal says 'Configuration does not specify a valid phone number login and so forth what does it mean?16:35
_Pete_maybe what the error says?16:37
ToStItOsWell I have all the info in there already so I stumped on why16:38
_Pete_so recheck every info you have is configured in correct place in your Configuration16:39
ToStItOswhen I created my ISP record I used the sudo wvdial /etc/wvdial.conf and I tried to save the file then I got a error about root not being a directory so I put the wvdial record in the root directory16:42
_Pete_are you sure it was "root not being a directory" ?16:43
ToStItOsyeah said root no such file or directory so I put the wvdial.conf file in the root directory and my modem almost worked then16:44
_Pete_what exactly are you trying to do?16:45
ToStItOsI want to delete the wvdial.conf duplicate files and see if my modem will dial out16:46
_Pete_with modem you mean "old school" ones that actually dial via teleline ?16:46
_Pete_then I am out of knowledge16:47
_Pete_or better said forgotten all that16:47
ToStItOsok but do you know how to delete duplicate files with gksu gedit16:48
_Pete_what do you mean with duplicate files ?16:48
ToStItOsI have wvdial.conf duplicate files that were created when I was trying to create my ISP info16:49
ToStItOsI have about 4 files16:50
ToStItOsI just want to delete them16:50
DetroitLibertyPein buntu is there an option to run LXDE insted of XFCE16:51
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about lxde16:51
TheSheepDetroitLibertyPe: I think you can apt-get it16:52
DetroitLibertyPeright, but once I do that, how do I change it so that when I boot it boots into LXDE instead of XFCE16:52
DetroitLibertyPewould the LXDE package automatically ad something to GRUB forcing me to choose each time, or what?16:53
ToStItOsAnyone know how to delete files in gedit16:53
TheSheepToStItOs: use a file manager instead, gedit is just a text editor16:53
TheSheepDetroitLibertyPe: it will add an option to your login screen16:53
ToStItOsI didn't think about that duh16:53
TheSheepDetroitLibertyPe: under 'sessions'16:53
TheSheepDetroitLibertyPe: just like installing gnome and kde does16:54
DetroitLibertyPeTheSheep: didn't know that either16:54
DetroitLibertyPemy 10 year old machine doens't like Gnome or KDE16:54
DetroitLibertyPeWindowmaker, now that's where its at!16:54
ToStItOsTheSheep but even if the file is a wvdial.conf file16:55
TheSheepDetroitLibertyPe: there is wmaker for xubuntu too16:55
ToStItOsTheSheep I won't need admin privileges to delete the files I don't need correct?16:56
TheSheepToStItOs: depends on where the files are and who owns them16:58
ToStItOsTheSheep the files are in the etc folder so you said use a file manager and will it let me ?16:59
ToStItOsdelete the files that way16:59
TheSheepToStItOs: start it with 'gksu thunar' command, then it works as root -- be careful, you can break your system easily working as root17:00
ToStItOsHows that ?17:01
TheSheepyou will be able to delete and change stuff that's part of the system17:01
vinnlToStItOs, which files are they? Are you absolutely sure it's safe to delete them?17:01
ToStItOshmmm well its the wvdial.conf files17:02
vinnlWhat do they do and why do you want to delete them?17:03
vinnl(Just making sure you're not doing anything potentially harmful, I wouldn't like that for you to happen ;-)17:03
ToStItOsvinnl I want to redo my ISP info because something is wrong with the configuration17:04
vinnlWhy don't you just edit the existing files then?17:04
ToStItOsbut doesn't create another file afterward17:04
ToStItOsWhen I edit the file doesn't it create another file?17:06
vinnlEhm, no... It edits the existing file17:06
ToStItOsI was looking at the file I check the configuration and it looked ok but the terminal keeps telling me that theres no valid phone number and so on17:07
ToStItOsthis is the message I get 'The configuration does not specify a valid phone numver log in name17:08
vinnlToStItOs, do you happen to have a .wvdialrc file in your home directory? That might overwrite your configuration17:09
vinnlAlso, why are you doing this manually? Xubuntu includes an graphical application to manage your network connection17:10
ToStItOshmmm let me check my other pc brb17:10
ToStItOswell long story but I basically I have ubuntu I want to migrate to Xubuntu 8.10 but without a connection I am at a loss17:11

puffandstuffanyone tried to install kdevelop under 9.04 ? when i've installed it it contains only project templates for qt application when i try to create new project :(21:45
knomepuffandstuff, what should it contain?21:46
CarlisI need to install the flash version for firefox xubuntu21:46
puffandstuffknome, autoconf is the most missed feature21:46
artistxeCarlis, you would need to uninstall ( not wise) your current version . and then find a deb package somewhere of the version you do want. even then may not work . again the site may be windows specific ( as in the viruses they want to place on your computer need a path to install)21:47
knomepuffandstuff, did it work earlier?21:47
puffandstuffknome, i need to be able to create an autotool project, but as i've said it only provide template for QT ! kdevelop 3.9.9121:47
puffandstuffknome, on 8.04 LTS all was fine and work great21:47
knome!attitude | puffandstuff21:48
ubottupuffandstuff: The people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines21:48

puffandstuffknome, whe i said i need i didn't want to say "you must provide me such a fonctionality" i know that people are volounteers, i'm a colunteer too :/21:49
artistxethere is something that you are misunderstanding here.21:49
puffandstuffme ?21:50
puffandstuffI would like just if someone can verify on it's installation if it's possible to create an autotool project using kdevelop 3.9.91, and thank you in advance.21:51
knomepuffandstuff, i suppose asking #kubuntu first would be wiseish, because they know about "k"(de) more21:53
puffandstuffknome, than you21:53
knomepuffandstuff, if it works for them and not you even after trying what they suggested, come back here21:53
knomepuffandstuff, then we can sort out if it's a xubuntu problem or a problem on your machine and jaunty21:54

knomeyou can ask #ubuntu22:01
