stlsaintjosefrichter__: do you have a make file in that directory00:02
pdsmediadoes anyone have a fix for this error showing while running the update manager in ubuntu 9.10:01:00
pdsmediaW: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net karmic Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 5A9A06AEF9CB8DB001:00
pdsmediano one is sending a reply so I guess not01:04
iceflatlineDid you do a search on Google. It appears the problem (and the fix) are quite common.01:08
pdsmediaI'll try that again... tried before and just saw the problem with no real solutions01:12
pdsmediaI looked at the solution again. they involve running scripts from anonymous people.  don't to take a chance of destroying the OS. it would help if you know of a trusted source01:19
pdsmediadoes this look like a viable fix:01:22
pdsmediathat one has complains if you see comments01:26
pdsmediathen you find other scripts that are supposed fixed that end out giving away you root directory password01:31
geirhai got that for the vbox ppa. oracle changed the key on it after taking over sun01:47
geirhajust went back to the site and copy/pasted the wget|apt-key line again01:49
phillw1iceflatline: take a look over at http://swiss.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1221323 for a trusted source01:52
phillw1oops, you can actually use http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1221323 that was the swiss mirror of the main ubuntu forum01:54
iceflatlinephillwl: thanks.01:56
pdsmediathat's a far simpler fix that what I saw on the searched sites01:57
phillw1pdsmedia: there's one nice thing about ubuntu (and linux in general), you're very rarely the first person to have had the problem :-)01:58
phillw1when you 'google' put +ubuntu at the start of it (the + is important, and no space between it and ubuntu)01:59
pdsmediaI'm aware of that but there are a lot of bogus fixes out there... maybe MS hackers trying to shut down Ubuntu installs02:00
phillw1pdsmedia: when you land on the ubuntu forums, you're pretty safe. If the thread has a few people discussing, you're even more safe, if the thread has ubuntu members / admins / QA people / LocO team members, then you are very safe. Remember, if you are at all unsure - ASK :-)02:02
pdsmediagood advice. thanks02:02
phillw1pdsmedia: http://forum.phillw.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=57 will take you back to ubuntu forum, but explain it a bit more in depth02:03
linux_is_my_herogood evening :-)02:05
linux_is_my_herohows everyone doing tonight?02:05
acerimmer_hey all.02:05
pdsmediathanks phillwl02:05
mikubuntuhola, wasssup in here tonite02:05
linux_is_my_heroacerimmer_: u got any experience with sound issues? i have a bug where instead of having the speaker with sound waves in my panel, i have a hollow speaker with dotted lines.02:06
acerimmer_linux_is_my_hero: hollowspeaker?  it's muted?02:07
linux_is_my_heroacerimmer_: no, its not muted.02:07
acerimmer_linux_is_my_hero: what distro?  and have you changed any appearance configs?02:08
linux_is_my_hero10.04 lucid...and i have stock appearance settings.02:08
acerimmer_linux_is_my_hero: that is weird.  I have a script that will reset all gnome panels back to default.  But if you run it, you've obviously got to rebuild the panels...02:09
mikubuntuacerimmer, but this is not really not designated as an 'installation' channel either02:11
acerimmer_mikubuntu: i tried.  sounds like a brainstorm suggestion if not a channel mod suggestion02:12
mikubuntuya, i think so02:13
linux_is_my_heroacerimmer_: im gunna check the alsamixer at the tty to see if its the panel or actually the drivers, because im not getting any sound either.02:14
acerimmer_ok - following this one02:14
mikubuntuit was very frustrating getting up and running for me, and i didn't know ANYTHING ... when i help my friends with installations i walk them hand in hand thru the process02:14
acerimmer_mikubuntu: well that's better than my method...02:15
mikubuntuwhich is?02:15
acerimmer_trashed xp/win7 repeatedly, tried wubi then manned up to dual.02:15
acerimmer_THEN decided I HAD to have hackintosh with all 3 OS's02:15
mikubuntui hate ms so much i'd never dual02:16
linux_is_my_heroyeah it appears alsamixer has been uninstalled because i cant run it from the tty.02:16
mikubuntugotta go do a cab ride, see ya guys02:16
acerimmer_linux_is_my_hero: strange indeed02:16
linux_is_my_heroacerimmer_: and i cant install alsamixer either.02:18
linux_is_my_heroi have duty tomorrow and im watching a dvd...oh well, thanks for your help.02:18

dtwritesUsing 9.10 and Firefox 3.5, why can I not run videos on Yahoo News (or any other apparently)?02:29
dtwritesThere's no "you need to download plugin" sign...so ?02:31
phillw1dtwrites: head over to http://firefox-tutorials.blogspot.com/2010/05/flash-optimization.html and ensure you do not have conflicting plugins (I do it the manual way, so expect "Not found" errors as you remove everything02:39
dtwritesI think I've figured out I have no "in-use" plugins. Thanks for the connection.02:40
phillw1that set of instructions will clear everything down and give you a 'clean' flash environment, if you are still having problems, pop over to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1193567 as lovinglinux  keeps a close eye on things and is an all round 'good guy'02:43

methodsfor some reason since i upgraded to the new ubuntu my sound is much lower i can barely hear it at full volume...02:49
Chesamomethods: in Terminal, type "alsamixer"... in there, there should be a slider called "PCM". See if that's down any lower than 84.02:49
acerimmer_methods: check your sound settings for defaults02:49
methodsyea i tried that02:50
Chesamomethods: Which... oh god.... which method? *snrk*02:50
methodsacerimmer_: defaults ? i went into pulse audio control and pushed all the volumens up... even the output device02:50
methodsi tried both02:50
acerimmer_methods: exactly what i was thinking02:50
methodsthis is very strange for me02:50
methodsi can't really seem to see any other place that i could set it higher02:51
acerimmer_methods:  and match your output to your config?  i.e. stereo  not 5.1 if that's what you have02:51
ChesamoSystem > Preferences > Sound02:51
methodsi have it set to analog speakers02:51
methodsit's a usb headset02:52
ChesamoIs the right card selected?02:52
methodswhat is the profile ?02:52
methodsprofile is set to analog stereo output02:52
ZachK_sup punks02:53
acerimmer_methods: also see >applications02:53

edlik I am using a live cd to try to move my home file to a usb storage device, it tells me I dont have permission, is there a simple way to get this done? I need to save my home in order to do a reinstall ubuntu and yes I will be creating a seperate home partition this time:)02:53
methodsi clicked every possible button02:53
Chesamomethods: Is there not an option to -- Hi ZachK_ -- an option to select which card to configure?02:53
methodsyea i picked the right one02:53
ZachK_hey ches02:53
Chesamoedlik: open Terminal, navigate to your home dir, type "gksudo nautilus ." You'll have permission.02:54
Chesamoedlik: include the leriod.02:54
phillw1ensure that under hardware that you do not have the modem selected, as that can also play havock with sound02:54
methodsyea i dont even see modem anywhere02:54
edlikChesamo: awesome, thanks02:56
phillw1Chesamo: I'm not in ubuntu atm, but the hardware drivers are in the Systems --> admin part?02:56
methodsyea nothing works02:56
methodsit use to be way louder02:56
Chesamophillw1: jockey-gtk? Yes, it's in System > Administration02:56
methodshm it use to say unamplified02:57
methodsnow it's better02:57
methodsperhaps messing around in alsamixer allowed me to do that02:57
methodsit's still not super loud but it's better02:57
edlikChesamo: I have obtained root premissions but nautilus now only shows the files on the live cd, is there a way to access my original "home" folder?03:02
ChesamoIs your hard drive mounted onto the LiveCD?03:03
edlikI can access it from "places"03:04
Chesamoedlik: Access it there, because that will make it mount.03:04
Chesamoedlik: Then, note where it's mounted (probably /media/something) and open Terminal. type "cd /media/<whatever>/home/<username>/" to get to the hard drive.03:09
Chesamoedlik: then type "gksudo nautilus ." (including the period) and it'll launch a file browser there.03:09
Buuntuhow big of a partition do you guys recommend for ubuntu with a separate /home partition03:47
ChesamoBuuntu: 3/4ths03:47
BuuntuChesamo, ths?03:47
ChesamoBuuntu: Three-quarters of the drive03:48
BuuntuChesamo, oh lol, nvm03:48
BuuntuChesamo, the /home partition is separate though...03:48
ChesamoBuuntu: Yes, I'm aware. "drive" != "partition"03:48
ChesamoBuuntu: The drive is the whole thing. A partition is just one "slice".03:49
BuuntuChesamo, I know, but you're saying 3/4 of the whole drive just for everything but /home???03:49
ChesamoBuuntu: My / partition is ~20GB, and my /home partition is ~80GB.03:49
ChesamoCan someone confirm that's standard practice? I think it is, but I'm not too sure.03:50
acerimmer_Chesamo: well that should be enough for the OS.  Guess you can do what you like with the rest.03:50
acerimmer_"Standard Practice" is NOT to make a dedicated /home.  You're ahead of the curve already.03:50
Chesamoheh. You know what I meant.03:51
BuuntuChesamo, I'll go with 15 or 20 for that partition I think.  3/4 of the drive for me would be over 200GBs :P.  I also have 2 OSs and am planning on installing other linux distros03:51
ChesamoBuuntu: Well I mean 3/4 of what space you're reserving for Ubuntu.03:51
acerimmer_80 gig is a lot.  Unless your loading up heaps of vids or music, I would think you'll be filling that space for some time to come.03:52
Chesamoacerimmer_: Transmission gets more usage than Firefox on my laptop :P03:53
acerimmer_Chesamo: i understand.  Well, hdd's are cheap...03:53
Buuntualso, will I run into problems if I use the same /home for more than one distro?03:54
ChesamoBuuntu: Not in theory, but the configs are stored there.03:55
ChesamoBuuntu: Keep that in mind.03:55
acerimmer_Buuntu: never done it, but it sounds reasonable.  google fu for multi-distro managment03:56

snchello, i would like to auto mount my ext3 partition on logon (just like the system drive does)10:35
duanedesignhello snc10:35
duanedesignyou will need to add it to your fstab10:36
sncmanualy edit fstab with a text editor10:36
snci have done that before :) and after failing i had to format the drive again10:37
snc(i dont get fstab ... sorry :)) )10:37
duanedesignget the uuid of the partition using the command: sudo blkid10:39
ZachK_snc: in the Terminal paste the command taht duanedesign gave you10:39
sncyes, done10:40
duanedesignsnc: also make a copy of your fstab:  sudo cp /etc/fstab  /etc/fstab.bak10:42
duanedesignsnc: that way if things get screwy you can run the command :  mv /etc/fstab.bak /etc/fstab10:42
duanedesignto restore your original file10:42
duanedesigndecide on a mount point. like  /media/data10:45
duanedesignsudo mkdir /media/data10:46
duanedesignthen add an entry to the bottom of your fstab like:10:47
duanedesignUUID=3f8c5321-7181-40b3-a867-9c04a6cd5f2f  /media/data  ext3  defaults  0  010:47
duanedesignof course using your UUID :)10:48
sncis it the same with ext4? (i guess not, its still good to ask)10:48
sncoh and fstab looks scrambled (different spacings between entries) that slightly makes me "not want" to edit such system scripts ... is that (different spacing) normal?10:51
duanedesignsnc: yes the spacing is fine10:56
duanedesignas long as there is a space between columns10:56
sncmhm ..10:58
sncis there anything else i should do?10:58
duanedesignsnc: i think that is it10:59
sncok :) thanks duanedesign & zachk10:59
snchello again :)11:29
snci managed to automount my second drive now11:30
sncnow i would like to link it to its previously default location like "/media/Home" ... currently it is in "/dev/hda1" and none of the applications work anymore ..11:31

duanedesignhello paulchain12:27
hobgoblinpaulchain: not had much to do with ATI cards but do you have the driver installed from hradware drivers in the sys admin menu? Driver downloaded and installed from ATI? Compiz turned on or off?12:57
paulchaincompiz is on idk how to turn it off :P13:03

hobgoblinand the other questions I asked?13:08
KlojumAnyone having experience with installing 10.04 on an Asus M3A78-EM in a RAID-setup? Ubuntu is unable to create the partitions on the RAID-disks. Is it possible that there is no default support for RAID on this motherboard??13:49

MagicJI intend to install a computer running ubuntu in my bar so that patrons can use it as a public access terminal.  I want to disable the icon in the panel that allows them to disconnect from the network - how do I do that?  There is no remove when I right click on it I of course get the connection info16:19
MagicJis this room alive?16:28
holsteinnhandler: hey16:28
holsteini would just lock that down16:28
holsteinpermission wise16:28
holsteinBUT you can just remove the notification area from the panel i suppose16:29
=== bgs000 is now known as bgs100
MagicJthanks - and how do I lock it down or - better still remove it from the panel - this is really the question16:30
holsteinpessulus is handy16:30
MagicJactually - ignore my last question till I look at the URL you just gave me16:31
holsteinyou just right click on the whole thing on the panel to remove it16:31
holsteini used pessulus to do something kinda like what your doing16:31
holsteinMagicJ: ALSO there is the 'guest' account16:31
holsteinyou might want to take advantage of that16:32
holsteinwhere in theory, it doesnt matter what the user changes16:32
holsteinyou just restart the box, and its back to normal16:32

holsteingood luck :)16:32
nhandlerholstein: Hi17:10
MagicJI want to prevent users from clicking on the network icon and then disconnecting from the network.  How do I do this?  I can not seem to remove it from the panel since when I right-click it - this activates it18:05
ChesamoYou can uninstall the network manager applet18:10
wise_cryptMagicJ : or try this http://www.addictivetips.com/ubuntu-linux-tips/add-restrictions-to-your-ubuntu-system-with-lockdown-editor-pessulus/18:30
MagicJhey guys - sorry - did not see the response18:47
MagicJI really don't want to uninstall the applet if I can avoid it because it would be nice for the other users.  But lets assume I do agree to do that,.  How would I uninstall it18:48
MagicJand wise crypt - ty - I am reading that site now18:48
MagicJI actually just installed pessus - doesn't give me the option I need here - but thanks18:49
shredder12MagicJ, why not just remove nm-applet for a while by killing the process nm-applet. When you need it back, just press Alt-F2 and run nm-applet19:00
MagicJah - now I like that - let me try it - brb19:01
shredder12MagicJ, it just removes the icon, the connection persists. I tried that19:01
holsteinhello nhandler :)19:15
buzzardMagicJ: forgive me, I'm new here, but it seems to me like the built in Guest session does just what you're asking for. When I switch to that account my networking icon in the panel disappears.19:15
* holstein was off at the local LUG meeting 19:16
buzzardI must be missing something19:16
holsteina very well attended DD presentation19:16
holsteinMagicJ: did you try that guest account?19:16
holsteinthat might be just what you need for a public machine19:17
holsteinand its easy19:17
holsteinand buzzard ^^ says the net applet is not available to guests19:17
MagicJI don't like the guest account much and it still has that icon there.  Sorry, phone rang, about to test the kill idea19:19

mininessieis there a gui for creating a custom kernel19:50
Chesamomininessie: the kernel's written in (I asume) C, you can't graphically customize taht19:51
paultagI think there is Chesamo19:51
ChesamoThe kernel?19:51
paultagmininessie, I think there is a GTK menu. One second. What WM do you use?19:51
paultagChesamo, yeah19:51

paultagmininessie, make gconfig19:53
* holstein google fail - chesamo kennel for DOGS ;)19:53
paultagif not, try a make xconfig19:53
Chesamoholstein funny story...19:53
dtwritesEither from the desktop or from archive manager (which will open the folder).19:53
Chesamopaultag Neither of those affect the kernel though19:53
mininessiepaultag, neither of them work19:53
paultagmininessie, are you compiling from scratch?19:53
paultagChesamo, they will if he is hacking together a custom kernel19:53
mininessiepaultag, i haven't started19:54
paultagmininessie, you need to download linux source code, and then you can do it19:54
paultagmininessie, you can't configure an already compiled kernel19:54
Chesamopaultag I've never seen a way to modify the source code graphically like that.19:54
paultagmininessie, http://kernel.org/19:54
paultagChesamo, it's like make menuconfig19:54
paultagChesamo, except not ncurses, it's gtk+19:54
holsteinthats when i though i was looking for the package named chesamo19:55
paultagholstein, what are you trying to do?19:56
paultagdtwrites, what do you need?19:56
mininessieso is there a gtk to modify the source code of kernel19:56
paultagdtwrites, :P19:56
dtwritesI followed the directions and downloaded flashplayer stand alone on my desktop. And there it sits.19:56
holsteinpaultag: i was just interested in the idea of a custom kernel builder GUI19:57
paultagmininessie, sure, with an IDE, but there is a lot of source code. If you just want to set up how it runs, you can configure the kernel without rewriting it. If you want to contribute to the linux project, ask in #linux19:57
holsteinand i misunderstood19:57
paultagholstein, yeah :)19:57
holstein14:51 <+paultag> I think there is Chesamo19:57
paultagholstein, it works just like you think it does. Try checking out the kernel and doing a make gconfig19:57
paultagholstein, oh, sorry, I was talking with Chesamo :)19:57
holsteini thought that meant try 'chesamo'19:57
dtwritesYou have to go into a folder and pull the stand alone out. I did that. I don't know where to go from there that works.19:57
mininessiepaultag, that and if i can turn off/on options19:57
paultagdtwrites, are you trying to get flash in Firefox?19:57
paultagmininessie, yeah :)19:58
paultagmininessie, you don't need to edit source19:58
paultagdtwrites, sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree19:58
dtwritesThanks, off to try it.19:58
mininessiepaultag, what do i need to do want to do with the kernel19:58
paultagdtwrites, sure thing. Don't forget to restart firefox19:58
paultagmininessie, what are you trying to do to the kernel? Change stock parameters?19:59
paultagmininessie, wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.34.tar.bz220:00
paultagmininessie, tar -xvf linux*20:00
mininessiepaultag, change like if it supports sound from realtek on version whatever but not version whatever i'd want to enbale that version that is not supported20:00
paultagmininessie, cd linux-2.6*20:00
paultagmininessie, make gconfig20:00
paultagmininessie, that will get you started. Let me find you a walkthrough20:00
paultagmininessie, this will do -- http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/compiling-linux-kernel-26.html20:01
paultagmininessie, but feel free to use make gconfig and not make menuconfig20:01

paultagmininessie, then what20:37
mininessiepaultag: then i ran make gconfig20:38
paultagmininessie, I said to cd in20:38
paultagmininessie, cd linux-2.6.3420:38
paultagmininessie, then run your make.20:38
paultagmininessie, you should follow the guide I gave you20:39
mininessiepaultag: i did line for line20:39
paultagapparently not :)20:40
mininessiepaultag: hold on getting kernel again20:42
dtwritesI'm back! "sudo apt-get install etc, etc." didn't work. Says... can't find flashplug... so forth.20:55
dtwritesStupid plug in is sitting on my desktop.20:56
paultagheyya dtwrites20:57
dtwritesHey paultag.20:57
paultagstno, flashplugin-nonfree20:57
paultagerm dtwrites *20:57
paultagdtwrites, what's the output of lsb_release -a ?20:58
mininessiepaultag: when i untar it i got an error20:58
dtwritesPaultag, you might as well be speaking greek. where do I find lsb_release -a? In terminal?20:59
paultagdtwrites, yeah20:59
dtwritesA minute20:59
mininessiepaultag: it gave me no such file or directory on many many files20:59
paultagdtwrites, run this for me ( quickly ) after you run that --21:00
paultagif [ "c$(cat /etc/apt/sources.list | grep multiverse)" != "x" ]; then echo "OK"; else echo "No"; fi;21:00
mininessiepaultag: help me21:00
dtwritesNo LSB modules are available.21:00
dtwritesDistributor ID:Ubuntu21:00
dtwritesDescription:Ubuntu 9.1021:00
paultagmininessie, I'm going to. Jesus christ, I'm not getting paid to help you guys. One at a time21:00
paultagOK dtwrites, and that command I gave you that I Just whipped up that looks like garbage21:01
paultagmininessie, you are trying to do something hugely complex. dtwrites has a simple issue. Hold on.21:01
paultagdtwrites, if [ "c$(cat /etc/apt/sources.list | grep multiverse)" != "x" ]; then echo "OK"; else echo "No"; fi;21:01
mininessiepaultag: running that kernel thingy21:01
paultagdtwrites, is the output of that "OK" or "No"21:01
paultagdtwrites, copy and paste works better then transcribing. When you do it by hand it's prone to errors21:03
paultagshit, and change that to "c" not "x" dtwrites at the end21:03
dragondongreetings all!  'm trying to stop iptables from logging evry dropped connection.  've deleted the rule that tells it to but it seems there's something else going on....21:04

paultagdtwrites, you should not transcribe, it is always better to copy and paste verbatim21:08
dtwritesNo, I'm on the same machine.21:09

dtwritesIs this not something I'll find on my add/remove pages program?21:13
paultagnope dtwrites :)21:14

dtwritesThanks. Wish me luck. ;)21:17
paultagdtwrites, it's nothing like it should be, but it "runs". You will be able to get some degree of success with these packages, but _noting_ like an x8621:17
paultagdtwrites, Good luck!!!21:17
paultagdtwrites, sudo apt-get install mozilla-plugin-gnash21:17

gloriousHow can I change that ugly, ugly lockout screen to something nicer looking?23:12
paultagwhat lockout screen glorious?23:13
gloriousThat's the one thing I feel embarrased about letting preUbuntu folks see.23:14
paultagwell OK then23:14
paultagglorious, what lockout screen23:14
gloriousum when you walk away from the computer and come back and it asks for your password.  A book I read said it was called the lockout screen23:15
paultagglorious, press ctrl + alt + l23:15
paultagglorious, that screen?23:15
drubinglorious: He wants a themed lock screen23:15
drubinblah paultag ^23:15
drubinand yes that screen23:16
paultagdrubin, you can help him, I don't know how to do it :)23:16
gloriousyes, that's the one23:16
drubinI don't know either23:16
drubinall I know is that running gnome-screensaver-command --lock puts it there23:16
paultagwhat's so ugly about it?23:16
paultagperhaps we can get a patch in place23:17
drubinglorious: Did you google at all for this?23:17
paultagI don't see an issue with it, I actually like it glorious23:17
drubinpaultag: it is just a personal preference.23:17
paultagI know drubin23:17
gloriousits so bare plain.  I switched to Ubuntu studio and it looks a little nicer now, but still23:17

drubinwow lag is killing me, I hope that link is helpfull it was the first one in google and was marked "solved" but it isn't loading for me23:18
paultagglorious, what do you want it to look like?23:18
drubinglorious: looks like you are going to have to download  another theme for it23:18
* paultag thinks it's GTK based23:19
paultagyou should be able to hack it23:19
gloriousdrubin, Yes, that looks like it might help.23:20
gloriousI wanted to learn how to change it 'cuz there are some folks that I want to introduce Ubuntu two, but I am hoping to change that part so it won't be so plain.23:21
gloriousand embarrasing to me23:21
drubinI wont be able to help you but  there is the source theme you should be able to download it and play with it23:21
drubinsorry can't be of more help23:21
gloriousHey that will probably help lots.  I'd googled w/o luck so thanks!23:22
gloriousthis is my first time on this channel.  I wanted to figure out how to get on so that I could support these potential new ubuntu folks23:23
gloriousActually is been probably 10 years since I used irc.  I think I used mirc on Win9523:24
gloriousfrankly I had trouble figuring out how to get here.  I finally succeeded using Konversation23:25
drubinglad we could help you23:25
=== tenach_ is now known as tenach
gloriousbefore briefly I tried and failed with empathy, xchat-gnome, pidgin,irssi,23:27
gloriousI'm glad too.  Thank you drubin and paultag!23:27
gloriousI think Konversation is working for me because I can figure out where to go to do things with its interface.  I couldn't with the others.23:29
mininessiepaultag: help i put in make modules_install make: *** No rule to make target `modules_install'.  Stop.23:30
gloriousthanks again folks!23:30
paultagmininessie, what's the output of pwd23:30
paultagmininessie, _you need to be in your project dir to run make_23:30
paultagmininessie, cd /usr/src/linux*23:30
mininessiepaultag: pwd23:30
mininessiepaultag: i got it thanks23:31
mininessiepaultag: i ran mkinitrd -o initrd.img-2.6.34 2.6.34 and it said mkinitrd command not found23:36
paultagmininessie, mkinitramfs23:37
mininessiepaultag: how do i load into my new kernel if it does give me the grub menu option to choose what kernel version i want23:42
paultagmininessie, sudo update-grub23:42
mininessiepaultag: yeah but its not the top of of the list the kernel 2.6.34 is not a top of the list23:43
paultagmininessie, dunno. I'm not a grub expert :)23:43
gloriousI found out the 'screen lock' is also called the lock dialog screen (and probably other names also)23:45
paultagthat's the one I know it as glorious :)23:46
gloriousI see why I had a hard time learning about it -- there aren't too many custom ones offered on gnome-look.org and they go by several different names.23:48
gloriousacerimmer thanks for the help on the other channel23:48
acerimmerglorious: do it worked then??23:48
