xenoli am interested in how does xubuntu deal with displaying battery state notifications02:18
xenolis there any patch for xfce4-power-manager?02:19
cody-somervillexenol, you just need to be running a libnotify compatible notification daemon I think02:33
xenolcody-somerville: when i insert battery or AC it sends notification. tho i am looking for something similar to this02:35
cody-somervillethat wasn't implemented02:36
xenolany patch?02:36
xenolcody-somerville: any patch for it which will implement that feature?02:42
cody-somervillenot as far as i know02:43
xenolit works only in crappy ubuntu?02:43
xenolpardon my language though :)02:43
sanubuntuarmageddon09: ok, i think i found what you're talking about, looks like the right thing .. i'll have to log out to the other user and try it03:22

antonio_a l'aide svp!08:14
antonio_je suis toujours a l'ecoute hein!08:16
BesogonYou use xfce4-display-settings for changing resolution don't you? So If your system has driver for graphics card and you are interested in another resolution you should make xorg.conf08:16
antonio_the pb is that my xorg.conf file is empty08:17
antonio_and when i change it08:17
antonio_it bugs08:18
antonio_when i restart08:18
Besogonantonio_, xorg.conf is easy to change.08:20
antonio_i know it is08:21

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/Resolution08:26
antonio_thbaks a lot08:30

antonio_try this12:50
antonio_go on the site of VLC u will have the exact command12:51
antonio_my connexion is very baaaaaaaaaad!!!!12:58
_YeahRightmessiah: the codecs are in xubuntu extras package or something13:27
wrgbmessiah: the package you need in Synaptic package manager is xubuntu-restricted-extras , this will install mp3 and flash support14:33
CarabasI have the following issue: I set xubuntu to boot into commandline. Now when I start X using the "startx"-command I have no sound in X. When I swich to a tty I can hear what is being played back under X. - Stange.15:11
CarabasDoes anyone know how the sound is started in Karmic? I.e.: What scripts, what loads the driver (pulse)?15:50
vinnlXubuntu doesn't come with PulseAudio15:54
vinnlIt uses Alsa I believe15:54
Carabas"sudo /etc/init.d/alsa restart" results in "command not found". I guess it's pulse.16:10
vinnlProbably because Upstart is used instead of init16:11
CarabasNevertheless; How do I start it manually?16:11
vinnlAnd: sorry, don't know yet :(16:11
CarabasI'd like to read in detail about upstart.16:12
ubottuUpstart is meant to replace the old Sys V Init system with an event-driven init model.  For more information please see: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/16:12
cody-somervillethere is no daemon afaik for sound like there is with pulseaudio16:12
cody-somervilleyou can't "stop and start" sound16:12
CarabasAh, o.k.16:13
CarabasThanks ubottu16:14
vinnlHe's a bot :)16:15
ubottuHi! I'm #xubuntu's favorite infobot, you can search my brain yourself at http://ubottu.com/factoids.cgi - Usage info: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBots16:15
vinnlAnyway, I'm off, bye :)16:16
petsoundshi.. i need help, java applet won't run. http://imagebin.org/71446  :(17:46
stevensjHi, has anyone used the xserver-xorg-video-openchrome package?  Any advice?17:47
geniiThe advice would be to avoid getting a system with some Via Chrome card in it to begin with17:58
dan_Hey there. Can anyone help with my xubuntu laptop screen resolution problem? Resolution is smaller than screen so I have a big black border.19:11
dan_Only options in display properties are 800x600 and below19:11
dan_Apparently there's no xorg.conf anymore...?19:12
TheSheepyou can still create it and it will be used19:15
dan_How can I auto generate a new one? tried sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg but nothing happens19:17
geniiYou don't need a complete one. If you have some stanza set which includes whatever you want to specify for settings you can use just that excerpt19:17
dan_I need to figure that bit out yet. Really old laptop, intel graphics, not sure of exact model.  :\19:19
geniilspci | grep VGA should tell the model19:31
maddonline4352hello together.. I'm a xubuntu newbe and i have troubles installing my usb wlan driver... can someone probably help me?19:38
_Techie_what usb wifi module is it?19:40
maddonline4352alternatively i have got a pcmcia card from us robotics USR5411 .. but i think this one is more difficult to install i suppose19:42
maddonline4352so the first module is WL-608 BL - Wireless USB Adapter 54g by sitecom19:43
_Techie_have you tried ndiswrapper?19:44
madddd223but as i am linux newbe... i am not sure if id did everything right19:45
_Techie_what steps have you tried so far?19:46
madddd223well i successfully installed the ndiswrapper19:46
madddd223windows wlan support19:46
madddd223then i loaded the .inf file19:47
madddd223which was successful19:47
madddd223the device wasn't found19:47
_Techie_have you removed and re inserted the device?19:47
madddd223and i also rebooted twice19:48
_Techie_that answers that question19:48
_Techie_i was about to ask if yuou had tried rebooting19:48
madddd223ah ok =)19:49
madddd223well first of all thank you for responding to my issue!!19:49
_Techie_no problem, unfortunately i cant really help too much as i have had no experience with ndiswrapper, i anything i suggest is just a stab19:50
madddd223yepp thank u anyways... u are certainlky more experienced than me. as it is the first time i try a linux os19:50
_Techie_the other alternative is to install the chipset drivers19:51
_Techie_there should be guides19:51
madddd223ok. i just ask u directly, is there any chance of similar linux OS, that could find the wifi drivers automatically?19:52
_Pete_madddd223: sure, do your own distribution19:53
_Techie_madddd223, http://www.ralinktech.com/license_us.php?n=2&p=0&t=U0wyRnpjMlYwY3k4eU1EQTVMekE0THpJMEwyUnZkMjVzYjJGa01ERTFPVGs0TmpRMk1DNWllakk5UFQweU1EQTVYekE0TWpCZlVsUXlPRGN3WDB4cGJuVjRYMU5VUVY5V01pNHlMakF1TUM1MFlYST1D19:53
madddd223ok thank u so far... what will be further proceeding?19:56
_Techie_not sure, i havent bothered to go past that page19:56
madddd223i just downloaded "2009_0820_RT2870_Linux_STA_V2.2.0.0.tar.bz2"19:58
_Techie_you will want to unpack that file20:00
madddd223sure. but is it the right chipset?20:01
madddd223or should i just give it a try20:01
_Techie_it should be, i would normally check a lspci but i already know that sitecom have masked the chipset name20:01
_Techie_anyone wanna buy me one of these? http://www.einfo.co.nz/shop/product_info.php?products_id=1024020:02
marten_Is there a way to revert my computer to the state it was, say, yesterday? I cant find anything about it anywhere, strangely enough20:02
_Techie_marten_, as far as i know, *buntu doesnt have any time machine software or system restore20:03
marten_How sad20:03
marten_The update to 9.10 didn't go as smoothly as I hoped20:04
_Techie_haha, join the club20:04
madddd223techie.. thank you so far... i will give it a try20:04
marten_My laptop isn't a laptop anymore, since I need to use an external mouse. No sound either, for that matter20:05
marten_I could of course use Vista, but i rather not20:05
_Techie_marten_, sounds more like a brick20:06
_Techie_marten_, and if you install vista it will become a cement truck20:06
marten_I dualboot, so its already there20:06
_Techie_why not dualboot XP20:07
marten_The updater said something about a partial installation of upgrades. Is there any way to see if I got everything intended?20:07
marten_Great, the colors are wrong playing videos20:08
marten_I dont have XP on disc, unfortunately20:10
marten_Otherwise, is there a way to run the 9.10-update again?20:15
_Techie_marten_, im not entirely sure but perhaps sudo apt-get upgrade or sudo apt-get dist-upgrade might do the trick20:17
marten_Will try20:17
marten_It seems to think that everything is there20:18
marten_I will have to fix this another day20:18
marten_Thanks for everything20:18
Balsaqwassup i meant20:48
alienkid10I followed the instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomizationFromScratch but I don't get a boot menu like on the offical liveCD how can I get a boot menu not a prompt?20:49
Balsaqsame here!20:50
Balsaqi think we have to go into bios and change the boot order?20:50
alienkid10I can get the disc to boot20:50
Balsaqi cannot20:50
alienkid10but can't get a menu20:50
alienkid10then yes20:50
alienkid10you have to go to BIOS20:50
alienkid10I test in Vbox20:50
Balsaqhmmmm...didnt want to mess around in there, this particular computer has a nice xp install on it20:51
Balsaqwhen i go in, it tap f2 a lot to get a menu?20:52
alienkid10then boot off CD20:52
Balsaqcan i boot off cd without messin round in bios?20:53
Balsaqdo i start by tapping f2 or f1220:53
alienkid10just change the boot order20:53
alienkid10I use Vbox to test CD before burn20:53
Balsaqi already burned it so i got what i got now20:53
alienkid10I don't know your BIOS/computer so I can't help with BIOS specific problems20:54
Balsaqweel i have a few of these and they all booted ubuntu stuff before no prob20:55
Balsaqbut they were clean before i booted buntu..the hd had been wiped clean20:55
Balsaqthis has xp on it20:55
alienkid10what exactly is your problem?20:56
Balsaqi put cd in  trey (one i just made of xubuntu) and am trying to run xubuntu fro the cd...in my xp computer and have not been able to get it going as of yet20:57
Balsaqwant to run a live cd as they say without touching-harming xp20:57
_Techie_alienkid10, try re installing grub, i have had similar problems in persistant USB installs where grub defaults to its command line20:57
alienkid10on the CD?20:58
_Techie_there should be a command grub-install20:58
ubottuVai su #ubuntu-it se vuoi parlare in italiano, in questo canale usiamo solo l'inglese. Grazie! (click col tasto destro sul nome del canale per entrare)20:58
alienkid10in a chroot?20:58
_Techie_Balsaq, run the wubi installer, install it inside of windows then you can remove it at your will20:59
Balsaqoh ok...thought i could just toss it in t here and run it21:00
_Techie_yeah you can, but the wubi install will give a faster system than a livecd21:00
Balsaqjust wanted too see if i burned it correctly...made it for my sister21:00
Balsaqalready have a nice xubu set up in the basement21:01
Balsaqwhen i burned it i chose ISO image and set my burn speed to 8x21:01
Balsaqso hopefully thats correct21:02
alienkid10I ran grub-install in chroot now resquash and iso?21:02
alienkid10I ran grub-install in chroot now resquash and iso?21:12
_Techie_i would think so21:12
_Techie_the other alternative is syslinux21:12
alienkid10I think I am using isolinux21:13
_Techie_then read up on this21:14
alienkid10y tree is: casper install and isolinux21:14
alienkid10so yeah21:14
alienkid10where do I get isolinux.bin and .cfg?21:15
_Techie_no clue, never worked with isolinux other than booting livecd's21:16
_Techie_you might want to look for some more help in #syslinux21:16
