freaky[t]hi all is anybody familiar with gigolo? im trying to mount a remote location over ssh. but it always opens / on the remote machine not /home/myuser/ and i couldnt find any setting for setting the start remote folder00:30
_Techie_freaky[t]: is it too much to navigate to /home/user/?00:34
freaky[t]every time, if it can be automated - yes :)00:34
_Techie_this gigolo, is it a mounter or a browser?00:35
rr72freaky[t]~ your gigolo works for remote connections?! did you do anything special? mind doesn't work00:36
_Techie_13 more minutes then i can finally boot back into windows and use my system again00:38
_Techie_if i had known gparted would take 6 hours a pop to resize and move my partitions i wouldnt have bothered00:40
freaky[t]rr72, yes ill explain you wait a moment00:40
freaky[t]i think it stores remote locations at least theres an option for it i gotta test but ill first help rr7200:41
_Techie_freaky[t]: you could just make a symlink to the folder within the mount location00:41
freaky[t]_Techie_, no that's not the usual way ;p00:41
freaky[t]and i still have to make 1 extra click then00:41
_Techie_freaky[t]: haha00:41
freaky[t]http://www.uvena.de/gigolo/help.html#open-resources-in-thunar-on-xfce-4-4-and-4-6 @ rr7200:42
_Techie_freaky[t]: you could always make a bash script to mount it and open up your browser00:42
freaky[t]hm ill have a closer look soon00:43
_Techie_sorry about the fact that all my answers dont actually fix the problem, they only work around it00:43
freaky[t]hehe no problem ;D00:43
freaky[t]i can't find an answer also00:44
freaky[t]i just noticed it doesnt save the last remote location =(00:45

lcbwell, let me try what _Techie_ suggested before. tks _Techie_01:50
lcbhmmm "the command xfce-panel failed to run. failed to execute child process xfce-panel (no such file or directory)"01:52
lcbhow to recover system essentials??01:53
_Techie_it might be xfce4-panel, i dont actually run xubuntu myself so im not 100% sure01:54

rr72_Techie_~ any ideas about brightness control on a laptop? it works on live cd but not 9.10 install01:55
_Techie_is the livecd plain ubuntu, or is that xubuntu aswell?01:56
rr72works on both of them01:56
lcbrr72, i just did a search on add/remove applications under "bright" and you have there some utilities01:58
rr72it might be a preprtary driver issue with nvidia?01:59
lcbtry "Monitor Settings" application, for instance02:00
rr72it comes up on the notification area though02:00
lcbrr72, "NVIDIA X Server Settings" utility (i'm not an expert in any way, if the monitor or any device in the surrounds explodes it's your responsibility )02:03
rr72brb going to see if i uninstall the nvidia drivers works02:03
rr72i can set it via CLI02:04
rr72just not through the buttons02:04
freaky[t]ill reboot into windows now my laptop just shut itself off again because of overheating02:07

OceanwatcherHi everyone.02:59
OceanwatcherI just finished installing Xubuntu for a friend. I made a login for myself (as admin) and would like to hide it from the login screen. How can I do that?03:00
OceanwatcherI have found no place to control the login screen03:00
likemindeadNot sure, Oceanwatcher. Sorry. I use auto-login.03:02
rr72I I am going to ask in ubuntu tomorrow about my problem03:21
rr72thankyou all for the help03:21
Oceanwatcherlikemindead: Thx.03:28
OceanwatcherI just need to exclude my own login to avoid confusion. Actually, the 9.04 style login was better than the 9.10 login in my opinion. Less cluttered and to the point.03:29

Billy_buntuHey, do you think Xubuntu 9.10 is stable?15:17
tavastifor me it is15:17
Billy_buntuIt just froze when I used the update manager on my usb installation.15:18
Billy_buntunow firefox won't open and no update manager.15:18
Billy_buntunot stable.15:18
Billy_buntuI didn't have this problem with 9.0415:19
tavastisame setup, running on usb-drive?15:19
Billy_buntuyes.  it downloaded the updates, but froze when installing them.15:20
tavastiis that usb stick or real hd?15:20

Sysiversion update or normal updates?15:21
Billy_buntuthe synaptic package manager's not working now.15:21
Billy_buntuit says:  E: _cache->open() failed, please report.15:21
Billy_buntubilly buntu is not impressed.15:22
Billy_buntuI spent ages installing it..now this happens..15:22
Billy_buntulooks like a complete reinstall...unless I get a fix.15:23
Billy_buntuhow do I reset update & synaptic managers?15:23
Billy_buntuwhere's the reset button ?15:24
Billy_buntuthe emergency default button?15:24
Sysidpkg --reconfigure-a is commonly working fix15:25
Billy_buntuok..I'll try that.15:25
Sysisudo in front propably15:25
Billy_buntu ok15:25
Billy_buntuit said "command not found"   Did you mean: sudo dpkg --configure -a15:28
Billy_buntusorry I made a typing error!15:30
Billy_buntuit's working now.. at least showing something...wait15:30
Billy_buntuit gave me a pile of options..what now ?15:32
Billy_buntuI opened synaptic package manager & got this error:   E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.15:36

=== jcfp` is now known as jcfp
tavastiend-of-life flash?15:37
Billy_buntuIt's a fairly new flash drive.15:37
Billy_buntuIt froze during the update...I assume it didn't complete the installation and logs.15:38
Billy_buntuso the new updates have not been recognized.15:38
Billy_buntui tried the dpkg command and it said:  dpkg: parse error, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/updates/0000' near line 0:15:39
Billy_buntu newline in field name `/bin/sh'15:39
tavastiwhat filesystem you have there?15:40
tavastiand is there some reason why would filesystem be corrupted?15:41
Billy_buntudon't know..I used the usb creator to format the flash drive and install xubuntu.15:41
Billy_buntuthen i used the update manager & it froze during installation.15:41
Billy_buntu*the update installation froze15:42
Sysiso it's actually a live-usb?15:42
Billy_buntuyes.  a live persistant usb15:42
Sysiwell, then it's not actually installed15:43
Sysiyou can make real installation for usb also15:43
Billy_buntuhow ?15:43
Sysihmm, i wonder if there are instructions somewhere15:44
Billy_buntupendrive linux has instructions, but you need windows and a special tool.15:44
Sysiiirc it needs a bit configuring if you want to boot also without usb-stick15:45
Billy_buntuI used the xubuntu live cd: Applications >> System >> usb startup disk creator.15:46
Billy_buntuit installed a casper-rw file (4 gigs)15:47
Sysihmm, i can't remember if there was something other than placing /boot to hard disc15:47
Sysibut this is same as in ubuntu, you can ask also from #ubuntu15:48
Sysiif here isn't anyone wiser than me :b15:48
Billy_buntuI might create my own capser-rw file  (that's the partition file that saves information)15:49
Billy_buntuI have instructions.. I'll do it manually.15:50
Billy_buntuxubuntu uses ext3 file system right ?15:50
Billy_buntuor ext2 ?15:51
Billy_buntuuse gparted to find out.. I'll check15:51
Billy_buntuI need to make sure casper-rw is formatted to the correct file type.15:52
Sysiubuntu can use manu filesystems15:53
Billy_buntubut the casper-rw file...does it need a particular file type ?15:53
Billy_buntumy instructions said to use ext3.15:54
Billy_buntuthe problem could be  "USB startup disk creator"  formatted casper-rw as ext2, when it should have been ext3..15:57
Billy_buntubecause ext3 worked fine in my usb xubuntu 9.0415:58
Sysimy livesystems have always been on fat3215:58
Billy_buntuyes I know that...but the capser-rw file should be formatted to ext315:59
Billy_buntuthat's how it's done in 9.0415:59
Sysihmm, i never use usb for longer times so idk15:59
Billy_buntuthe capser-rw file saves your changes...it has to be formated to ext3,  even though the rest of the usb drive is fat32.16:00
Sysieven though that proper installation was a bit hard because of stupid oem xp16:00
Billy_buntudoes your hard drive installation of 9.10 work ok ?16:02
Billy_buntuhave you tried the update manager ?16:03
Billy_buntuthere should be about 80 updates16:03
Billy_buntudownload the updates..and see if it works..16:03
Billy_buntuthen try downloading a game with synaptic package manager.16:03
Billy_buntu(if you dare !!)16:04
Sysii'm not sure if liveystem is ment to be updated16:04
Sysii have working 9.10 in three computers16:04
Billy_buntu<< is not liable for any damage to your system..16:04
Billy_buntuit's not a live cd... I'm talking about a hard drive installation of 9.1016:05
Billy_buntudoes your hard drive installation update with update manager ?16:05
Sysiyes, all of them work great16:05
Sysionly mute-problems with sound16:06
Billy_buntudid you configure the mixer ?16:06
Billy_buntuapplications >> multimedia >> mixer16:07
Sysithat's common bug16:07
Billy_buntuturn up the volume16:07
Billy_buntuit worked for me.16:07
Sysibut it isn't issue16:07
Billy_buntuI played youtube videos with sound no problems.16:07
Sysiback on mute after reboot16:07
Sysibut i very rarely reboot16:07
Sysiand at school sound needs to be muted :P16:07
Billy_buntuok. well that's strange because the sound on my 9.10 works fine.16:08
Billy_buntumaybe it disagrees with your sound hardware.16:09
Sysiofc they work when you turn volume up16:09
Sysibut as said, that's not issue for me16:09
Billy_buntuI'll use windows to install 9.10 to my usb drive and see if it works any better.16:11
Billy_buntuthere's a windows tool that creates a persistant usb installation of xubuntu 9.1016:12
Billy_buntuor...I could use "usb disk startup creator"  then reformat casper-rw to ext3.16:14
Billy_buntuthanks for putting up with my rambling..16:16
Billy_buntuI'll use the live cd to install 9.10 to my usb flash.  then reformat casper-rw to ext3.16:18
