IledenHi! I'm using a lot of application shortcuts from the xfce keyboard settings menu. However, I would like to run one of my own scripts via a keyboard command - how can I run a command so that the execution opens in a terminal window, so I get to see the output? Also, is there a way to make that window close automatically after the script has run?06:42

nikolamwhy xfce tends to revive all apps that were active when i did shut down the system?07:57
nikolamAlslo I think it just changed my window manager setting when i shut it sdown last night..07:58
JairunCalothdisable save session on logout for the first one07:58
nikolambut why would it save things that i did not set? like changing window manager and number of workspaces and such things08:00
nikolamand why it is displaying gnome desktop instead of xfdesktop all the time08:01
nikolamis gnome desktop now always active behind xfdesktop??08:01
nikolamalso every time I start an app from command line, i get message about "something about Murrina storm cloud theme is not supported"08:04
liljanhi guys.. gotta try install xubuntu on an older computer.. the thing is that the computer only have about 128mb and minimum requirements need 192.. but there is some info about "The Alternate install Cd" but i cannot find it on the website...? http://xubuntu.org/get09:08
ubottuThe Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can  also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/alternative-download#alternate - See also !minimal09:11
moetunesliljan: sorry but that link doesn't have the xubuntu altermate cd - try http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/releases/lucid/release/09:14
moetunesit would be handy if that botlink was changed to reflect the channel we are in...09:15
IledenHow long should I wait before asking a question again?09:18
moetunes5 min maybe...09:19
Iledenok :)09:20

Iledenmoetunes: That's it, thanks!09:22

canyouhelpmeare you still here?12:29
bazhangcanyouhelpme, ask a question12:30
bazhangif someone knows, they will answer12:30
canyouhelpmemy xubuntu doesn't support a higher resolution than 800x60012:31
canyouhelpmethe internet told me, i should edit xorg.conf in /etc/X11, but there's no xorg.conf.12:32
canyouhelpmethank you very much, i will try it now.12:32
canyouhelpmeshould I follow the steps in "adding undetected resolutions"?12:37
bazhangsure, give it a shot12:37
canyouhelpmeok. i typed in the console: " $ xrandr --addmode S-video 800x600" but it returns me: "$: command not found"12:40
bazhangyou already have that resolution, correct? try creating a newmode12:41
canyouhelpmeok, thank you.12:41
canyouhelpmenow i tried: " $ xrandr --addmode S-video 1280x800" and it returned "$: command not found" again.12:44
knomecanyouhelpme, do not type the $12:49
knomecanyouhelpme, the command should start with "xrandr"12:49
canyouhelpmenow it returns me: "xrandr: cannot find output 'S-video'"12:51
canyouhelpmei don't have any S-video output... could this be the problem?12:52
canyouhelpmewhat should i type instead of "S-video"?12:53
knomecanyouhelpme, try 'xrandr -q' to see the correct output12:55
knomecanyouhelpme, should read "*something* connected ..."12:55
canyouhelpmedefault connected12:56
knomethe try default instead of S-video12:56
canyouhelpmeok. thank you12:56
canyouhelpmenow: "xrandr: cannot find mode "1280x800"12:57
canyouhelpmenow i have to create it?12:58
canyouhelpmewith   "xrandr --newmode <Mode``Line>"?12:59
knomecanyouhelpme, i suppose so13:07
knomecanyouhelpme, see the output of 'xrandr --help' for the syntax you need to use13:08
canyouhelpmeit returns "--newmode <name> <clock MHz> <hdisp> <hsync-start> <hsync-end> <htotal> <vdisp> <vsync-start> <vsync-end> <vtotal> [+HSync] [-HSync] [+VSync] [-VSync]13:12
canyouhelpmeand now i have to input all these things?13:13
knomecanyouhelpme, see the "Adding undetected resolutions" -section in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution13:13
canyouhelpmei followed the steps and after the input of: "xrandr --newmode "800x600_60.00" ........ " it returned me: "X error of failed request: BadName (named after color or font does not exist) Major Opcode of failed request: 150 (RANDR) Minor opc13:25
canyouhelpmeMinor Opcode of failed request: 16 (RRCreateMode)13:25

knomei'm sure you'd get it working with patience13:29
canyouhelpmei think so too.13:30

alok_can anyone help me with setting up a network proxy in xubuntu16:16
ayush27Hello, I need help. What are the recommended specs for Xubuntu (the latest one)?16:25
charlie-tcaayush27: listed here -16:27
ayush27it doesn't sat anything about the processor. only RAM16:28
charlie-tca400mhz minimum16:28
ayush27and recommended? I need to run all the standard applications like a web browser (with flash) , media players etc. would it run fine on a 700 Mhz?16:30
ayush27with 384 MB RAM16:30
ayush27or should i go for lubuntu?16:30
charlie-tca700 should be fine.16:32
charlie-tcaWe don't give a recommended processor, because if the ram is high enough, the processor is fine16:33
charlie-tcaXubuntu runs with any processor 400mhz and higher16:33
ayush27alright thanks charlie-tca16:36
charlie-tcayou are welcome16:37
likemindeadayush27, I have a 700MHz PIII with 1GB of RAM that loves Xubuntu. :D16:43
ayush27likemindead: it must be the RAM that makes it work fine. I've been going thru various linux forums and I guess xubuntu on a 700Mhz with 384MB RAM would not perform well17:07
likemindeadYeah, that'd be rough. Old RAM is cheap. Max out that sucker.17:10
skit-lassexrandr was easy way to configure dual monitors to work the way i wanted, do this setup remain even if i restart my computer, ei. did xrandr write these settings somewhere?17:10
ron_oayush27, it will perform, but not well at those speeds.17:23
ron_oyou really have to be very selective in what apps you choose.17:24
ron_oand you must run fluxbox, no flash ...17:24
ron_ono applets..17:24
ron_ohell. you'17:24
ron_ohell,, you're almost a server. :)17:24
charlie-tcaron_o: actually, it will perform very well with xubuntu at 700mhz. The limiting factor will be the ram available17:27
charlie-tcaI have run xubuntu lucid on a 400mhz cpu, with 640mb ram it works quite well17:28
ron_ocharlie-tca, I guess you're right. I only had 384 or so of RAM.. but you're still limited no matter what.17:28
ron_oyou're a better man than I. Actually, it's always like that. Some guys in the realworld need almost no tools to get things done, and other guys need everything.17:29
ron_ono different with computers.17:29
charlie-tcayes, with 384 of ram, you probably have only one application at a time running, sometimes you can two depending on what they are17:29
ron_oI did the numbers and realized that I could spend $200 upgrading my 1.2 GHz to get it working better or spend $1,000 for a new computer.17:31
charlie-tcaIt is the ram that matters, not the speed of the cpu. Given enough ram, you can run all the applications in it and it is as fast as you can do anything17:31
ron_oI chose the latter and haven't regretted it since.17:31
Xubuntu_NewbHm, my computer was lagging a lot, so I forcifull restarded it by holding the power button. When I rebooted in Xubuntu, it was starting a disk check. Then when I logged in, I could see my desktop, and access applications, but my panel was completely gone!19:58
likemindeadAnyone have a good Conky guide they'd recommend?20:28
