PDG1I'm without internet right now so searching forums is hard.  anyone know if you can combine keyboard and mouse button presses for shortcuts?00:10
PDG1on the ol android phone :p00:10
charlie-tcaSHould be able to; there are some already such as right-shift + left-mouse button to move a window00:16
PDG1okay.  my mouse also has forward and back buttons.  how would I map those.00:18
charlie-tcaI don't know00:19
PDG1its flipping hard to type as fast as a real keyboard with this virtual keyboard. so sorry if I'm slow to respond00:19
charlie-tcaMine mapped themselves in apps that will use them00:19
PDG1shoot.  maybe ill just have to wait till I get internet again00:20
charlie-tcaI think they are mapped in /etc/xorg.conf, so it will take some research to find it00:20
PDG1so can you change what your mouse shortcuts do?00:22
PDG1where do You see those?00:24
PDG1oh... xorg00:25
charlie-tcaYeah, I think mouse buttons are done through xorg.conf. You probably have to create one, though00:25
PDG1so its something like editing a file not changing a setting in A GUI00:25
PDG1well ill look in xorg.conf00:26
PDG1awe Poo... there's nothing in there :(00:28
charlie-tcathus the "it'll take some research to find it" ...00:29
PDG1and I have no idea what to put in there00:29
PDG1yeah... and using my phone isn't exactly convenient. looks like I'll have to wait00:30
charlie-tca!info xorg.conf00:30
ubottuPackage xorg.conf does not exist in karmic00:30
PDG1but as far as you know this is possible?00:30
charlie-tcaI checked when I bought the Logitech Track Ball00:30
charlie-tcagot like 7 buttons00:31
PDG1I guess anything is possible with enough patients and determination00:31
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/Resolution00:32
PDG1so what kind of shortcuts do You have setup?00:33
charlie-tcaThis should help: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WacomTroubleshooting00:33
charlie-tcaIt gives some samples of xorg.conf00:33
charlie-tcaI have forward and back, and scroll forward and back on buttons00:34
PDG1I'm specifically looking to do something like super forward to do next song in exaIle00:34
charlie-tcaAll you need is to hit the ffw button in exaile with the left mouse button, it jumps to the next song00:35
jstCould someone tell me what the default music player is?00:36
PDG1but I don't want the window open00:36
charlie-tcajst: exaile00:36
charlie-tcaYou are welcome00:37
charlie-tcasure, make it complicated00:37
PDG1what's listen for?  is it just another option?00:37
charlie-tcayes, it is another music player. We used it as default in 9.0400:37
PDG1it doesn't work too well for me so I just use exaile00:38
charlie-tcaright, that was one of the reasons we switched to exaile in 9.1000:38
PDG1beauty :p00:40
jstAlso, is ALSA still used in Xubuntu 9.10?  "alsaconfig" is not installed.00:40
PDG1I think so...00:40
PDG1the other option is oos isn't it?00:41
jstWhoops, i meant "alsamixer."00:41
charlie-tcaAlsa-player and alsa-utils are used00:42
charlie-tcabut we are using Xfce4-mixer00:42
charlie-tcaPDG1: oos?00:42
PDG1I can't remember what its called00:43
charlie-tcai see00:43
PDG1its an option other than alsa00:44
PDG1But I think most systems use alsa00:44
charlie-tcaoss, I believe. That is quite old and not as good00:45
PDG1yeah.  so I've heard00:48
PDG1no idea why someone would use it00:49
charlie-tcabecause it works00:50
PDG1but so does alsa on most machines. would oss work better on some older hardware do You think?00:51
charlie-tcaalsa works now, but oss is great for a fallback. Some of the old hardware won't use alsa00:52
PDG1didn't know that.  I thought alsa worked on pretty much anything00:53
charlie-tcaWell, old = isa00:53
charlie-tcaMy systems may not be quite new anymore00:53
PDG1I see00:54
charlie-tcaThey only issue I ran into is an old ISA network card that won't work00:54
knomecharlie-tca, did they EVER work?00:55
* knome hides00:55
charlie-tcaof course00:56
PDG1yeah, that's why I like Xubuntu. works well on most of my cheap as free computers that are usually pretty old00:56
charlie-tcasomebody gave me a new system, and most of the components appear to be bad00:56
charlie-tcanew = amd 32 bit 1000MHz cpu, 384MB ram, ...00:57
charlie-tcacost me ram, hard drives, and cd drive so far00:57
PDG1I was looking for a buntu to run on my old Craptop I just got 'for free' but view all seen to run too many resources00:57
knomecharlie-tca, hey! that has barely more ram than my GC00:58
charlie-tcaincreased ram to 51200:58
knomeooooooooh :o00:58
charlie-tcabut all these bad parts... Why would you give away a broken system?00:58
Pres-GasGaaaaaa!!! Jury Duty!!!!00:58
Pres-GasThis is not the time for that!00:59
charlie-tcaPres-Gas: ha! have fun with that. Last time I got called they said no when I tried to explain that if they didn't do it, why were they going to trial?00:59
Pres-Gasheh, nice01:00
charlie-tcaThat seemed to be considered a bad thing to think01:00
Pres-GasMaybe it is just bad to think.01:01
knome...think? what's that?01:01
PDG1any idea if there's a buntu that will run well with 128 RAM?01:01
knomeis it edible?01:01
Pres-GasI am interested, and yet...wanting to actually work.01:01
charlie-tcaPDG1: server only01:01
knomecharlie-tca, or the minimal with CLI ;)01:01
knomemight actually run better...01:02
charlie-tcawell, yeah. either way there is no GUI01:02
PDG1right now I've got puppy... but I grow tired of the system01:02
charlie-tcahmmm, can a bad zip drive take out the cd drive?01:02
Pres-GasServer still installs more software01:02
knomeanything is possible...01:02
knomePres-Gas, i'd be surprised if it didn't ;)01:03
Pres-Gascharlie-tca, is it in the same ata chain?01:03
Pres-Gaslol, knome01:03
PDG1well... is there like... something with openbox maybe...01:03
charlie-tcacd primary, zip secondary on the same controller01:03
PDG1anyways... extended away = me01:03
knomePDG1, minimal + install openbox packages :P01:04
Pres-Gascharlie-tca, I have seen that happen...one device in the chain blowing the whole thing01:04
knomePres-Gas, can't promise it runs well with openbox installed though.01:04
Pres-GasI would unplug the zip from both power and ata cable and see if the CD recovers, charlie-tca01:04
charlie-tcaI seen it blow out the floppy, and the floppy take out the zip. I just didn't realize it would take out the cd drive01:04
charlie-tcayeah, I already tried that01:04
Pres-GasDid the CD recover?01:05
knomefail :)01:05
Pres-Gasepic fail01:05
charlie-tcasame results both ways. Put a different cd drive in without the zip drive connected, it works01:05
Pres-GasPower surge?01:06
charlie-tcakilled it, huh?01:06
charlie-tcano power surge that I know of01:06
Pres-Gashmmm, charlie-tca01:06
charlie-tcaMight be just a bad cd drive, but I can't take a chance on killing another one yet01:07
Pres-GasI have seen stranger things....then again I have seen those CRT iMacs blackened on the inside from smoking run like a champ.01:07
knomecharlie-tca, i can send a few replacement drives in the mail01:07
* Pres-Gas vomits thinking about that01:07
charlie-tcayou got that many?01:07
knomecharlie-tca, yeah. going to throw lots of old stuff away.01:08
knomewell, not throw away but give away01:08
charlie-tcaCosts a lot to send in the mail. I'll probably go pick a couple again01:08
knomei used to like to play with them but i don't seem to have that enthusiasm or the time anymore01:09
knomeyou have to let go01:09
charlie-tcaI know, but I am trying to build a media center pc01:09
charlie-tcaand I want lots of storage options01:09
knomedidn't mean you. you still seem to have fun with those, that's great. i don't, so better give the stuff away01:10
Pres-GasTime to go...have fun gentlepeeps01:10
charlie-tcaI don't do anymore that needed now, myself01:10
knomeget more storage space as well, but different type ;)01:10
charlie-tcaYeah, probably pick up a dvd-rw for this machine too01:10
knomewell, i'd have at least one of those.01:11
charlie-tcagot one yesterday for US $40.0001:11
knometoo bad you're so far away01:11
charlie-tcaI got three now01:11
knomethose cost about 22 euros here01:11
charlie-tcaI just been replacing the cd drives with them01:11
knome== 31.5$01:11
charlie-tcanot bad01:11
knomerather just buy a new one if one breaks up01:12
charlie-tcaYeah, but at one point I had about 12 sitting on the shelf01:12
charlie-tcaNow I got one01:12
knomei've been giving or throwing stuff away for the last year01:13
knomei still want to get rid of more.01:13
knomei really don't need all that.01:13
charlie-tcaI done some of that myself. I am down to two spare motherboards, finally01:14
knomei'm talking about everything else as well01:14
knomelike non-computer stuff01:14
knomelike... books01:14
knomeoh wait01:14
charlie-tcaI never give books away. I got reference books going back to the 1950's01:15
knomei don't have a spare one01:15
knomeno wife's given away ;)01:15
knomeyou want a cobol-85 book?01:15
charlie-tcagot one01:15
knomethough i think i dumped it on the grabage bin already :P01:15
charlie-tcagood thing I didn't want it, then,01:15
knomehehe yeah01:16
knomewould have had to track it down01:16
knomehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4BYMvVvMg0 <- that's quite cool01:25
charlie-tcaI don't remember seeing a two-man guitar before01:27
knomeme neither01:27
charlie-tcaThat's pretty good :-)01:28
knomehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdt4i3oyDJA ;)01:28
knomeeven more weird01:28
knomewatch until ~1:10 when the second player starts also taking notes from below the neck01:30
charlie-tcaOkay, enough of that. It makes the head hurt watching it01:34
knomewhat about one man and two guitars? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFqTd-CEjHM01:34
charlie-tcaNah, my grandfather used to do that. Also, guitar, harmonica, and banjo together01:34
charlie-tcanew cd drive works; got a good install01:36
knomegood :)01:36
charlie-tcayeah, it helps to be able to run two or three at a time on hardware01:36

foxxspiritshi all. anyone available to help out a newbie real quick?05:32
cody-somervillefoxxspirits, whats the question?05:35
foxxspiritshaving an issue with my sound. Although pulseaudio is showing that I should be getting some sound, nothing is coming from the speakers. I have tried going into the alsa mixer and changing the volume there to no effect, installed the libraries, and removed and reinstalled pulseaudio all to no effect. I had sound about 3 days ago, but when I turned off the computer and started it the next day, the sound was gone again :P05:38
cody-somervilleCan you check that the volume isn't muted? (its a bug that it gets muted on reboot)05:39
foxxspiritsyea. I noticed that, but it doesn't seem to make a difference one way or the other05:40
foxxspiritsI also tried removing pulseaudio and installing esound, but again to no avail :P05:42
cody-somervilleTricky since who knows what sort of state your system is with audio related packages05:43
foxxspiritsyea. its a rather old laptop from HP too... gotten everything else to work just fine. can't seem to get the sound working to save my life tho.05:47
CubeyDoes anyone know of a fix for this? When I hit mute on the keyboard, it mutes... by putting the volume all the way down. When I hit mute again, it does nothing to unmute. I have to then hit volume up to restore it to the level it used to be06:03
Cubeyah ha, i think I got it..06:10
Cubeyok, well it's half working06:11
Cubeynow I have mute working and down, but not up..06:12
Cubeylooks like i fixed it with a script online, and with some modding to it :)06:18
kazechey, I'm having some trouble getting an ssh (and/or FTP) connection to my new server, I keep getting the 'connection refused' error07:35

Tutattishi . when i create a user besides root, does this user take space in my hdd?09:42
_Pete_Tutattis: yes it does09:54
Tutattis_Pete_, about how much?09:54
_Pete_home directory + some entries in /etc/ files09:55
_Pete_couple of KBs09:55
Tutattisi installed the system on my 8gb flash09:55
Tutattisas a guide told me09:55
Tutattisbut the man at the guide says to delete normal user after the installation to free up some space09:56
Tutattis(ubuntu 8.10 i used)09:56
_Pete_what guide?09:56
_Pete_so the guy in guide always runs root account10:00
_Pete_"Most the time I end up running things as root anyway with Backtrack so why mess around? "10:00
_Pete_which is still a bad idea10:01
Tutattismaybe because bt4 has some tools10:10

n0-n4m3or, which do you prefer10:27
n0-n4m3Ov3rf10w, which version do you prefer?10:29
n0-n4m3what is it about 9.10 that makes it sucks?10:30
knomei'm running 9.10 and there's absolutely nothing wrong with it10:30
n0-n4m3he was probably just being silly :)10:30
knomewell jaunty (9.04) was quite a lot better than intrepid (8.10), but karmic (9.10) wasn't *that* much better than jaunty which might lead somebody feeling that karmic would be a bad release10:32
knomebut it definitely brought improvements10:32
knome...and if you install karmic, you can once skip one step in upgrading to ludid, 10.04, the lts release10:32
n0-n4m3whats lts?10:33
n0-n4m3(sorry i am noob to linux)10:34
knome!lts | n0-n4m310:34
ubottun0-n4m3: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Hardy (Hardy Heron 8.04).  The next LTS release is scheduled to be !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04)10:34
n0-n4m3can you define support?10:35
knomesupport means updates in repositories10:36
knomeplus paid user support10:36
knomecommunity user support will *probably* last longer than that10:36
knomei have to go now10:36
knomebut have fun with xubuntu (and with whichever version you decide to choose)10:37
n0-n4m3so if you were to do a fresh install of a distro that was no longer 'supported' you wouldn't be able to get any updates10:37

Timewarperi did an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, but some of the packages it tried to upgrade werent fetched correctly16:17
likemindeadThat happens sometimes if a server is down or something.16:18
Timewarperso i tried to do apt-get upgrade again16:18
likemindeadI'd recommend you go to Synaptic and change servers under the Repositories tab.16:18
likemindeadYou can greatly speed up your downloads that way too.16:18
Timewarperto get the 1 missing file samdump216:18
Timewarperthe upgrade failed again,couldnt get samdump2 or it was broken or osmething16:19
Timewarperso i did a apt-get remove samdump216:19
Timewarperand an apt-get autoremove16:19
Timewarperwhich removed all no longer needed packages16:20
Timewarper(the last one removed about 1500mb)16:20
Timewarperhow do i fix it now?16:20
Timewarper(btw i did an apt-get clean at some point)16:20
likemindeadUh... why did you remove samdump2?16:21
Timewarpercause the apt-get upgrade said16:21
Timewarperit cant be upgraded16:21
Timewarperor something16:21
Timewarperso i wanted to clean it and reinstall it16:22

Timewarperall removed packages will come back?16:24
Timewarperdoes apt-get solve missing dependancies?16:25
Timewarperwith apt-get install?16:25
likemindeadNo... you'd have to install each package individually. But if apt-get autoclean removed them, you don't need them.16:25
likemindeadAnd yes, apt-get solves dependencies.16:25
Timewarperi did an apt-get remove samdump216:26

pinguHow do I make my terminal look like this? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tar_screenshot.png18:53
likemindeadChange the font and colors.18:54
TheSheeppingu: what do you mean? it looks normal18:54
likemindeadUse Tilda, FTW.18:54
pinguTheSheep: I have only white text18:57
TheSheeppingu: use some programs that use colors18:58
oorahis there an xubuntu netbook edition?18:59
TheSheepyou can enable color ls for example with 'alias ls=ls --color=auto'18:59
TheSheepyou can have a colorful prompt by redefinign the PS1 environment variable19:00
TheSheepfor example http://forums.vandyke.com/archive/index.php/t-1366.html19:01
knomeoorah, no, just the default ubuntu one.19:01
oorahknome, i wondery why19:02
TheSheepoorah: nobody made it19:02
knomeoorah, you can install the netbook remix apps into xubuntu, afaik.19:03
knomeoorah, i'm not sure if they work with xfce, though :P19:03
knomeoorah, it's not a small job and xubuntu has a small memory footprint anyway19:03
pinguHow did the user make everything appear in a different color? Isn't there a theme i can choose similar to sytax hightlighting in text editors?19:04
TheSheeppingu: no, each program is configured separately19:05
pinguBut that's the standard terminal?19:05
TheSheeppingu: you can tweak tearminal's colors in the terminal settings, but changing them completely is usually a bad idead19:06
TheSheeppingu: more or less yes, maybe a different font and some changed colors19:06
pinguThere is no option for giving special words or symbols special colors TheSheep19:07
pinguI can only change text and bg TheSheep19:08
TheSheeppingu: the colors are displayed by the program that you run19:08
TheSheeppingu: like 'ls'19:08
TheSheeppingu: it's not a feature of the terminal19:09
pinguAnd why is the user's nick displayed in green general?19:09
pinguAnd Dollar in blue19:09
TheSheeppingu: because that uses changed his PS1 environment variable to customize his prompt19:10
TheSheeppingu: and added some color codes to it19:10
TheSheeppingu: as it is explained at the link I gave you19:10
pinguTheSheep Is there any terminal which uses theme scripts?19:11
TheSheepI don't think so19:11
TheSheepthere might be some shells that do19:12
pinguTheSheep i found this: http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Bash/Prompt19:15
oorahhow do i add pictures for user login?19:39
TheSheepoorah: you save them in a file called .face in the user's home directory19:42
knomeTheSheep, what if i want pictures of... other body parts?19:42
knomedo i name them .hand19:42
TheSheepknome: gdm currently only supports faces19:42
TheSheepknome: file a feature request19:43
knomedo you think they will support feces in the future?19:43
TheSheepthey do everywhere else, so why not19:43
Sysiif facebook don't own the license for faces19:43
oorahTheSheep, what do i do after i make the directory and put pictures there?19:43
knomeoorah, /home/user_1/.face == user_1's face19:44
TheSheepoorah: it's not a directory, just name the picture file '.face'19:44
knomeoorah, /home/user_2/.face == user_2's face19:44
TheSheepknome: they actually used to use ~/.gnome/photo, but switched to ~/.face because some users wanted to use drawings instead of photos ;)19:45
oorahso all i gotta do is name a picture .face?19:45
oorahok thanks brb19:45
knomeTheSheep, right. how important the change was... i hope they fixed a ton of other bugs - i mean, it must have taken forever to settle and agree on a new filename..19:46
TheSheepdo I detect irony?19:47

javatexanhelp...if I install the nvidia version 185 in the "hardware drivers", I cannot login to my computer afterwards...the only way back seems to be sudo apt-get purge and then rm the xorg.conf.   I am running latest 9.10 Xubuntu with xfce on Dell E6500.  Unfortunately I need the nvidia drivers to work with monitors at work21:46
javatexananyone else seeing similar behavior?  I login it looks like it is going to work and the returns to the login screen....21:47
TheSheepjavatexan: try disabling compositing21:49
javatexanTheSheep: the xfce compositing is off21:50
TheSheepanything in logs?21:50
javatexanin the "window manager tweaks"21:50
TheSheep/var/log/Xorg.something and ~/.xsessionerrors21:51
javatexanguess I will have to try it again to get those... ;)21:52
TheSheepdmesg may have something too21:53
=== lolcat is now known as SquishyD
javatexanTheSheep: that was weird. Its working now.  I had to delete my xorg.conf and let it create its own at login to work.22:36
javatexanI guess we will see how long it works.  ;)22:37
