floyd8I want to create a linux set up with a pre-configured development enviorment for my team members. How would I go about doing something like that?08:08
Balsaqfloyd8 : what team do you manage?08:18
_Pete_floyd8: like this, extract .iso, then do modifications there and then pack it again to .iso08:18
floyd8_Pete_: So I could have the iso pre configured with stuff like LAMP, some databases, some command line tools and other packages?08:19
floyd8Very cool08:20
_Pete_what ever you like08:20
floyd8Any issues with hardware compatability? I think not.08:20
floyd8Wow. This is very interesting08:21
floyd8It was just an idea, because I was reading about Amazon EC2 Machine Images08:21
_Pete_hopefully the db will be postgres and lamp doesnt include php :)08:22
floyd8It takes a lot of time to set up a new member's enviorment. Especually because we are all remotely based and have different machines08:22
_Pete_how so? all those can be installed with single apt-get08:22
_Pete_so maybe easier is to have all machines ssh ready08:23
_Pete_then with that remote execute script which installs what is needed08:23
floyd8I was thinking that an .iso would be better because it would assure that all of our stuff is isolated from you own personal files08:24
_Pete_what do you mean with that?08:26
floyd8_Pete_: Duel boot everyone's computers. Company OS and personal OS08:29
floyd8"Company" is used loosely here08:30
floyd8Or, alternatively use a VM08:30
RedaxxxI got a minor but quite annoying problem with xubuntu, everytime I boot my computer and reach the desktop it automatically opens terminal, hardware drivers and add/remove software (or whatever it's called in English)... When shutting off I make sure that "Save session for future logins" is not marked.  Anyone know how to stop this from happening?08:51
_Pete_"Save session for future logins" do this with the setup you want to see on next boot08:53
Redaxxx-facepalm- alright, thank you Pete08:54
RedaxxxI'll try that out08:55
=== deegee_1 is now known as deegee
RedaxxxHello, whenever I open a .html document it opens it in firefox even though I have selected Google Chrome to be my mainbrowser, why?16:01
Sysiit may need to be set up in filemanager16:02
Sysirightclick →  properties16:02
Redaxxxalright, sec16:02
Redaxxxcan't find anything16:03
Sysii have there "open with" and drop menu16:04
Redaxxxah yeah, got it.. thanks a lot :)16:06
Redaxxxhehe alright.. next question then, I got two hotkey problems.. In Google chrome I can't use ctrl+F4 to close down tabs, nothing happens and I play a game where alt+f8 should show your fps in the top left corner but that doesn't work either... Program -> system -> keyboard -> shortcuts (or whatever it says in English) doesn't show that those keys are assigned to anything so why doesn't it work?16:22
Redaxxxoops... program -> settings(?) -> keyboard -> shortcuts*  not system16:23
faLUCE(9.10) hi. I want to add a timer in the grub menu when booting. I don't find men.lst anymore. what should I modify?17:09
charlie-tcaThere is no menu.lst in grub2; take a look in /etc/grub.d and read the docs on it17:10
acalbazaso... since my upgrade to karmic i have no ati 3d support because my card is now considered legacy... anyone else?17:15
faLUCEcharlie-tca: I'm reading the readme. but I don't find anything useful for adding a simple timer17:17
charlie-tcatimer for seeing the menu?17:18
faLUCEcharlie-tca: yes17:18
charlie-tcaWrong menu; sorry. Got to set that in /etc/default/grub17:18
faLUCEcharlie-tca: I don't have this file17:19
charlie-tcalook again, it is installed by default with grub217:20
charlie-tcashould be a file called grub in /etc/default17:20
faLUCEcharlie-tca: I don't have it17:21
=== thunderstruck is now known as gnomefreak
geniifaLUCE: Did you upgrade from 9.04-9.10 and chose to keep grub1 ?17:21
faLUCEgenii: yes17:22
geniifaLUCE: Then it's the same as before, in /boot/grub/menu.lst17:23
geniifaLUCE: (not "men.lst" as you wrote earlier)17:23
faLUCEgenii: there's not, anyway., thanks, in another machine there is. should i modify GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET to true?17:24
charlie-tcaNot if you are using grub 117:24
charlie-tcain grub2, yes17:25
faLUCEcharlie-tca: how can I check which grub I'm using?17:25
geniiapt-cache policy grub17:25
faLUCEok thanks all17:26
charlie-tcacomment out the GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT line, too17:27
faLUCEgenii: the command you said doesn't tell me anything17:27
faLUCEthis grub menu starts when for example I accidentally power off my pc17:31
faLUCEand it has not a timeout....17:31
faLUCEotherwise, when I perform a normal boot, I don't see it17:31
faLUCEnow: I want to avoid that it hangs on this grub, after this accident. Tne system has to be ready automatically17:32

charlie-tcawhat version of xubuntu, alejandra18:05
charlie-tcaalejandra: what version of xubuntu? you can find it by typing 'lsb_release -rd' in a terminal and hitting enter.18:08
charlie-tcaThe package name changed to gambas2; try 'sudo apt-get install gambas2' in the terminal18:11

jmcantrellanyone know how i might change the wallpaper with the python library?21:13
TheSheepjmcantrell: on what operating system?21:15
jmcantrellTheSheep: linux (xubuntu)21:20
TheSheepjmcantrell: ah, sorry, I didn't look at the channel21:21
TheSheepjmcantrell: I thought it's #python21:22
TheSheepjmcantrell: you can send the HUP signal to xfdesktop process to make it switch to the next wallpaper from the list, but that's probably not what you want21:22
jmcantrellnot really. :-/21:24
jmcantrellthanks though21:24
Flea_Hi. I need help installing freeorion. Can anyone help me out?21:28
charlie-tcaWhere did you get it?21:31
AledIn Xfce, how do you set the menu system so that you don't have to click off the current open menu to switch to the next22:10
Aledas in, on the "Applications" and "Places" bit22:10
charlie-tcaAled: don't know that you can do that in Xfce22:15
AledIt's just a minor inconvinience, but I'll get used to it22:16
AledI came to Linux from Windows see?22:16
charlie-tcaAs do most users22:16
AledBut at least it works on individual program menus22:16

z0manHi Xubuntu Community.  I have been wondering why Empathy will not start in Xubuntu and ideas?22:58
charlie-tcaProbably does not have the gnome dependencies installed22:59
z0manhmmm.  /me starts empathy in terminal mode23:00
z0manACtually says... "Bus Error" :(23:00
charlie-tcaDoes it give any errors?23:00
charlie-tcaThat will be a clue23:01
* z0man googles23:01
z0manknown bug in launched i believe.23:02
z0manheh the bug is reported from some country... I'll mark it as affecting me :)23:03
z0manoh... I already have23:03
z0manthink in the mean time I'll use Pidgin until it gets fixed :)23:04
z0manheh I had to "End Process" for "Gnome System Monitor" to close it.23:05
charlie-tcaI think pidgin is the default in xubuntu, isn't it?23:05
z0manSo it is... heh I naturally just wanted to install Empathy due to it's clean look23:06
z0manwow sure is quieter than ubuntu channel23:12
knomeusually that also means better quality support once you get it23:12
knomecharlie-tca, you still therE?23:12
z0manI got well chuffed yesturday that I managed to get my Tablet pen working :)23:12
* z0man shows link23:13
knomecharlie-tca, how much do you know about playing dvd's?23:13
charlie-tcause vlc?23:13
charlie-tcathey don't play as nice in totem, but it can be done23:13
knomez0man, not long ago, i configured my tablet to only use one of my monitors23:13
knomewell, i sure can play dvd's...23:13
charlie-tcathat is all I know23:13
knomei was about to ask about angles, chapters etc.23:14
charlie-tcaOh, yeah, install dvdcss2, I think23:14
knomecharlie-tca, my dvd playing is working ;)23:14
knomecharlie-tca, i just want more23:14
charlie-tcamore is good sometimes23:14
z0manI even managed to find something worth updating in the Ubuntu community docs too!23:15
z0manI was over the moon about that one :)23:15
charlie-tcaI got 5-6 bugs for each install today23:15
charlie-tcaz0man: good job! Thanks for helping23:15
z0manNever ending support of spreading Ubuntu wen I can ^^.23:17
jstIs there any way to view throughput when copying files?  I'd prefer not to run something like iftop if possible.23:18
z0manI even documented how to tie Konqueror with Kate for web development ^^.23:20
jstI'm talking about Thunar, by the way.23:22
z0mannot used iftop before sorry :(23:22
z0manthroughput you mean... The bytes being copied?23:23
jstz0man, yeah... or the speed at which a file is being copied.23:31
jstRight now it just gives a "time remaining," but I'd like to see bytes or transfer speed as well.23:31
z0manin GUI form?23:37
z0manor terminal since you said not "iftop" if possible23:37
z0manah i got ya23:37
jstIn the same window where it shows "time remaining."23:37
Rascal999why is xfce lightweight compared to gnome? what does gnome have/doesn't have that makes xfce faster?23:45
Ov3rf10wtry xfce and see why is faster then gnome23:49
Ov3rf10wXfce requires much less memory23:50
Ov3rf10wand weaker graphics card23:50
z0manBrillant for slow end machines/laptops23:51
z0manand also brill for a possible Bootable OS for diagnosing machines23:52
likemindeadI just prefer Xfce over GNOME or KDE period. Even on fast, new machines.23:52
z0manI have a bootable usb stick with xubuntu for any such occasian(SP)23:52
z0manjst I think found this program called... NatActView23:54
jstCool, one sec.23:54
z0manyet I don't believe it shows the amount of transfer speed :(23:55
z0manI need to go to bed so I will have halt research on your problem23:55
z0manall the best23:55
jstWell, looks like z0man is gone, but does anyone know if there's a way to get Thunar to display this information when copying/moving files?23:59
jstI like that it shows "time remaining," but it would be nice if it showed MB/s as well.23:59
