charlie-tcaJKL: shortcuts in Xubuntu are assigned in Applications -> Settings -> Xfce 4 Settings Manager -> Keyboard or Window Manager.13:47
charlie-tcaCtrl+alt+s does not appear in my system13:48

ubottufbxxkl_: Wireless documentation, including how-to guides and troubleshooting information, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs13:49
fbxxkl_Thanks charlie-tca, issue resolved13:52
charlie-tcaYou are welcome13:53
JKLthx charlie-tca, i will have a look14:36
JKLcharlie-tca: i dont have it neither. what might be the problem ...14:37
charlie-tcaIf it is unassigned in Xubuntu, eclipse set it wrong. You might try adding it to Keyboard shortcuts, as a work around14:38

Rogaschcan somebody help me out with a problem i do not understand16:52
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)16:53
Rogaschwell i tried to copy some folder in a /usr/share dir but i didnt workt out with a permission excepton16:54
Rogaschthe thing is, i used sudo as prefix16:54
Rogaschsomeone know this problem?16:55
Sysiwhat you are trying to copy there, why and how?16:55
Rogaschi tried to copy a folder with icon stuff from my home16:56
Sysicreate folder .icons to /home and put icon there, they work then16:57
Rogaschohh and i used the termin with : sudo cp .../ .../ -R16:57
Rogaschyea maybe but i do not understand why the command doesnt work16:58
Sysisudo cp -r ~/folder /usr/share/icons16:59
Rogaschohh sorry i typed it wrong16:59
Rogaschbut i did it roght on the terminal17:00
Sysidoes it give some error?17:00
Rogaschonly permission denied17:00
Rogaschbut i have another prob that can be connected to this problem17:01
Rogaschi tried to chown to the folder i want to copy17:01
Rogaschalso with sudo17:01
Rogaschand also there was es permission denied17:02
Rogaschsame with chmod17:03
Rogaschi thougt sudo is like root for the command17:03
Rogaschwell it have something to do with sudo. I just tried a simple copy from .../Downloads to .../Temp inside my Homedir17:08
Rogaschwith sudo it say permission denied and without sudo it worked17:08
TheSheepmaybe your user doesn't have permission to use sudo? what was the exact command?17:09
TheSheepand the exact message17:09
TheSheepalso, what is the output of 'id' command?17:10
Rogaschroman@rosch-pc:~$ sudo cp -r Downloads/Browser\ Downloads/black-white\ 2\ Style\ big/ Temp/17:10
Rogaschcp: Aufruf von stat für „Downloads/Browser Downloads/black-white 2 Style big/“ nicht möglich: Permission denied17:10
Rogaschsorry it is in german17:10
Rogaschbut it is all it says17:10
Rogaschwhat do you mean with output of 'id'17:11
TheSheeptype: id17:11
TheSheeppress enter17:11
TheSheeppaste the result17:11

charlie-tcaThat should have been ~/Temp if Temp is in /home17:11
TheSheepcharlie-tca: no, he was in ~ already17:12
TheSheepcharlie-tca: plus, cp complained about no access to the first directory17:12
Sysitry 'sudo -s' and copying in "root shell"17:13
TheSheepI know that on solaris home directories are mounted in some funny way that makes root unable to access them17:13
charlie-tcaTheSheep: but the way that is written, Temp is a root directory, not in /home17:13
TheSheepcharlie-tca: nonsense17:13
charlie-tcaYou have to use ./Temp or ~/Temp17:14
TheSheepcharlie-tca: there is a space between / and Temp17:14
TheSheepcharlie-tca: no17:14
Rogaschthats not the point Temp ist a folder i created17:14
Rogaschin my homedir17:14
TheSheepRogasch: is your home dir on a network share?17:15
Sysiyou use xubuntu? :P17:15
Rogaschno i use normal ubuntu17:16
Rogaschi thougt it makes no difference17:16
Sysihey wait, i had about same issue with black-white 2* themes17:16
TheSheepwhat does 'ls -ald Downloads/Browser\ Downloads/black-white\ 2\ Style\ big/' say?17:16
Sysiyou have to copy .tar* and extract after that17:16
Sysii don't know what causes it but i had it too17:17
TheSheepSysi: maybe they were tar-ed with og-r?17:17
Rogaschsame: permission denied17:17
Rogaschohh wait i was in root shell17:17
TheSheepRogasch: 'ls -ald Downloads' ?17:17
TheSheepRogasch: yeah, do it as root17:17
Rogaschls -ald Downloads/Browser\ Downloads/black-white\ 2\ Style\ big/17:18

Rogaschsorry guys17:22
TheSheepRogasch: well, ~/Downloads is on an external drive17:22
TheSheepRogasch: and mounted through nfs17:22
TheSheepit squashes root17:23
TheSheepit wouldn't be good if root from one system had root rights in another system17:23
Rogaschhow do i realize that?17:23
TheSheepso root is not allowed to access network-mounted systems by default17:23
Rogaschahh ok17:24
Rogaschthat explains it17:24
Rogaschshoud i allow the access?17:24
TheSheepif you don't need it, no17:25
TheSheepcopy or move it to some local disk and then copy as root17:25
Rogaschyea that sounds easy17:25
SysiTheSheep: i have a lot of respect for your headscratching now17:26
Rogaschi really thank you for the help17:26
TheSheepSysi: I had a similar problem with nfs once17:27
Sysiwe've had that kinda things at school iirc17:27
Sysiwe have (currently) debian lenny and homes mounted through nfs17:28
TheSheepwe switched to cifs because of students fooling around with packet sniffing17:28
Sysiour users are mostly "omg what linux" rest are in the admin group17:31
TheSheepSysi: we have some that didn't get to be admins because of characterological reasons...17:33
* charlie-tca thinks between Sysi and TheSheep, all questions can be answered with patience17:49
