alex_hi, first time using xubuntu, I have a few questions03:28
alex_1. How do I install theme support and compiz desktop effects?03:28
alex_actually, that's my only real question03:29
alex_I just want to do it properly03:29
bazhang!ccsm | alex_03:29
ubottualex_: To enable advanced customization of desktop effects in Ubuntu: install 'compizconfig-settings-manager' or 'simple-ccsm'. If you install the latter, a new option will appear in your appearance properties - See also !compiz - Help in #compiz03:29
alex_oh wait, also, how do I install the gnome appearance program03:32
alex_ok, I've installed my restricted nVidia driver, how do I enable compositing?03:55
alex_err, so I installed compiz...04:00
alex_but I don't even see an appearance window in my menus.04:00
alex_ah, found it.04:00
alex_but... I don't see any compositing option here.04:02
well_laid_lawnxubuntu comes with its' own compositor alex_ but to use compiz in terminal do   compiz --replace   iirc04:05
ubottuCompiz (compositing window manager), for a howto see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager and more help #compiz04:06
alex_right, you are correct, gotten too used to the option in gnome's appearance panel04:06
ridinwait, does the window manager change?04:15
ridini have gnome and xfce installed04:15
ridinapparently yes04:21
well_laid_lawncompiz is a wm and you can't run two at the same time ridin04:24
ridinyes, but i was hoping i had the same window manager >:(04:24
well_laid_lawnafaik you can do   xfwm --replace   as well04:25

arpad2there is desktop before i sign up09:38
arpad2from there i can access xterm09:38
arpad2ubuntu session however goes to blackscreen09:38
well_laid_lawnafaik it would have written a xorg.conf ftle in /etc/X1109:40
well_laid_lawnyou will need to move that file to a diff name like xorg.conf.bad or something09:41
arpad2i was suggested to do the following, which action resulted in no result:09:43
arpad2sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf  /etc/X11/xorg.conf_backup09:44
Sysisudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf09:44
arpad2i got sth like /etc/X11/xorg. conf   no such file or dir09:44
Sysior use 'mv'09:44
arpad2mv ?09:45
arpad2instead of cp09:45
Sysiit won't help if file don't exist09:45
arpad2i thought so09:45
well_laid_lawnthere might be something in ~/.config09:46
arpad2also sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg didnt show any result09:46
arpad2I'm listening:)09:47

Sysiright click → desktop preferences14:57
capBhey, I just installed the xubuntu updates off of a fresh install, and now ubuntu gives me a "Running in low graphics mode" error on startup, and compositing cannot be done, IE compiz doesn't work. According to the error, the Nvidia kernel module can't be found.15:24
capBAll of this was working before the updates15:24
Sysimenu → system → drivers15:25
capBdo you mean hardware drivers?15:25
Sysi(i'm not using english xubuntu)15:26
capBthe same Nvidia driver(recommended) which was in use before is currently in use and active.15:26
capBit says it cannot find the kernel module in the error.15:29
Sysitry to take that driver off and install again15:29

rumbertCrystal is the only icon set i have discovered where I do not notice any missing icons.  Even Breathe is missing a stop icon.  Are there any others with coverage as complete?20:12
TheSheeprumbert: tango20:19

TheSheepyeah, looks like it's unmaintained and rotten already :(20:27
TheSheepshame, I generated a nice icon set with it20:27
rumbertI'm thinking of generating an icon set with 'cp -lr'  .  Would I need any fixed icons?20:29
rumbertjust need to create a theme with a huge Inherits value with a "," separated list.21:42
rumbertNo, that does not work perfectly21:43
