TheSkewardHi.  I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 under the XFCE desktop environment, attempting to use Altec BX1220 speakers, and when I plug them in, they light up and give feedback, but no sound comes from them.  Can anyone help me?00:15
TheSkewardThe speaker icon says "100% | 0.00 dB | Internal Audio Digital Stereo (IEC958)" when I mouse over it00:16

s_andyhi, im getting an error when i try to log into  any non root sesion on my xubuntu box, it says i have some problem with the power manager and that i should contact my system admin. What should  I do?05:22
s_andybtw, the problem, besides the error message, is that i just cant start a X session05:22
putaasplease somne help me06:18
psycho_oreoswe're not mind readers06:19
putaasat gdm, only root is able to login, normal users can't, they get back to gdm...06:19
putaasim trying to see what the problem is but not eve xsession files are being created06:20
psycho_oreossounds like you didn't install xubuntu straight off, that is you installed xubuntu-desktop06:20
psycho_oreosit could also be group rights issues06:21
putaasi was getting an error a few minutes ago about the poweranager swettngs not being loaded06:22
putaasa few times i have been able to login  but the seesssion looks weird, well,just, unconfigured06:23
putaasshouldnt userA be in group userA06:24
arpad2hello, good morning06:26
arpad2i restarted my pc06:27
arpad2and since than it can boot only win706:27
arpad2last time it was running transmission on xubuntu06:28
putaasxubuntu is starting too behave weird with me too06:28
arpad2grub2 also disappeared06:28
putaaseverytime i reboot is a different thing missing or working different06:29
psycho_oreosno I think the normal user should also be a member of other groups rather than being a group of its own06:29
psycho_oreosare these from upgrades?06:29
putaasi think i had installed originaly xubuntu 906:30
arpad2what i know is that during my installation i didnt install grub 2 the best way06:30
psycho_oreosupgrades are never done cleanly imo, probably best to backup all personal data and do clean install06:30
psycho_oreosarpad2, was windows installed after xubuntu?06:31
arpad2yes, indeed06:31
psycho_oreosarpad2, that's the problem, windows tends to overwrite the MBR of the hard disk/SSD with its own boot loader06:32
arpad2yes, but last night i didnt do any OS installation06:33
arpad2only doing with regular programs06:33
arpad2so i shall try booting with live cd?06:34
psycho_oreosso you had xubuntu and windows working on dualboot with grub2 and all of the sudden, the last thing you did on computer was using transmission on xubuntu which somehow caused grub2 to disappear completely?06:34
arpad2i didnt switch pc overnight06:35
arpad2switch off06:35
psycho_oreoshave you updated/upgraded any programs in the process?06:35
arpad2not as far i can remember:)06:35
psycho_oreosare the update/upgrades done automatically?06:35
arpad2automatic is only the notification06:36
psycho_oreoswell I guess the only way is to recover grub2 as per usual06:36
arpad2as shown at help.ubuntu.com?06:37
psycho_oreosor however you did it in the first place :)06:59

nicofsDuring boot i get the message "Unable to detect available WMID devices" - which slows down my boot. How can i remove that. [Running Acer Aspire One 532h, N270 1,66GHz, latest Xubuntu]13:07
nicofsHow can I speed up my boot process? I recently upgraded my netbook with an SSD - but i am still far away from these 10-second-boot promises i heard. [Running Xubuntu on Acer Aspire One 532h, N270@1,66GHz]13:40
TheSheepnicofs: whoever made that promise, he lied13:41
Sysiyou don't need to repeat13:41
Sysiare you counting login to that time?13:41
nicofsTheSheep: even 20 second would be an improvement...13:41
nicofsSysi: i am not repeating... and i disabled login.13:41
Sysiinstall bootchart13:42
nicofssysi: ok, will try...13:42
nicofssysi: i installed is... how do i use it? or is installing enough already?13:46
nicofssysi: *it13:46
Sysireboot and see /var/log/bootchart/13:47

gaussfrankCan anyone tell me how to set the window color in xubuntu13:59
Sysigaussfrank: install/change theme, for many default themes it changes with gtk-theme14:00
gaussfrankI want to change on my opinion14:00
Sysimake own theme :P14:00
gaussfrankOnly want to change a white-color-window into a green-color-window14:01
gaussfrankOh,how can I do it easily?14:01
TheSheepgaussfrank: you can use an existing theme as a base14:01
Sysioh wait, what do you mean by "window color"?14:01
TheSheepgaussfrank: http://live.gnome.org/GnomeArt/Tutorials/GtkThemes14:02
gaussfrankFor example14:02
gaussfrankYou can see white in Mousepad14:02
gaussfrankSorry for my ugly English.14:02
SysiD347H-C0D3: you could try to reinstall cups14:03
gaussfrankI meant that the color background in a window or a dialog14:05
D347H-C0D3Sysi: When i run apt-get install xubuntu-desktop that cups package is downloaded14:05
D347H-C0D3Sysi: The error comes during installation14:06
Sysidebootstrap can give odd problems..14:06
Sysigaussfrank: are you looking for something like gnome-color-chooser?14:07
gaussfrankMaybe yes. I edited it in gnome easily. Or instead, edit some configure files.14:09
gaussfrankFor another example,we can change "web background" color in firefox.14:10
gaussfrankI want to edit all window like firefox.14:11
gaussfrankIs there any tool like this?14:14
gaussfrankOh,Sysi,not gnome-color-chooser14:25
gaussfrankIn gnome, we can edit color in there14:28
Sysiafaik there isn't anything like that in xubuntu14:30
Sysibut if you can save theme "created" like that, you can maybe use it14:30
gaussfrankoh,but can i edit it by editing some configure file.14:31
Sysii think they are in gtk theme14:31
gaussfrankI've found theme files in system. maybe /usr/share/**14:31
gaussfrankThen there's a file named gtkrc14:32
Sysiyeah, that's the gtk-theme14:33
gaussfrankI don't know which one is what I want to edit14:36
gaussfrankI don't know the one which I want to edit14:36
gaussfrankThere are many color settings in this file. I'd edited a one, but .............14:37
gaussfrankIs there any official manual14:44
gaussfrankIf i get it, i can search for translations.14:44
Sysisearch for "creating gtk-theme" or something15:09
gaussfrankwhat does 'style "default"' mean15:09
gaussfrankIs it?15:09
gaussfrankIf I search "creating gtk-theme' in Chinese, I found how to MFC and how to VC++ ......15:12
bazhanghttp://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=944189 no easy way gaussfrank15:15
gaussfrankIt's the most difficult way for me is to read English......So I translate it in Google Translation15:18
gaussfrankI failed15:57
gaussfrankI edited style "default"15:57
solotimhello. my prime partition is shortage of space, so I moved my /home to another partition and created a symbolic links pointed to that. I wonder if I can do the same thing to other root directories. Any suggestions?15:59
TheSheepsolotim: try 'sudo apt-get clean'16:02
TheSheepsolotim: this will clean apt-get cache16:03
solotimTheSheep: that's far from enough, I've tried.16:07
solotimwhatsoever, there are only 200M left in my prime partition16:07
TheSheepyou can move any directory in / to another partition and mount it in that place16:07
TheSheepbut that usually requires booting from a cd, so that the files are not in use while you move them16:08
TheSheepit's common to have /var and /usr on separate partitions16:08
=== Evixion` is now known as Evixion
solotimYes, I thought the same way.  I've managed to mv /var to another partition.  But for /usr it is a little bit unsafe I feel16:11
solotimsince the binary file 'sudo' sits in /usr/bin, it seems we can't cp those kinds of special file.16:12
solotimI get no cd driver. My solution is firstly cp the whole directory tree to another partition, and then mv, say /var, to /var_bk, and "sudo ln -s /media/sda5/var /var"16:14
solotimhello, TheSheep, are you there?16:19
Sysiyou can boot from usb16:21
solotimSysi: I can't. LOL, this is a pretty old computer  Dell C60016:25
solotimThanks for the advice16:25
Sysii forgot 'maybe' :p16:29
