dracotux10.04 lucid lynx11:26
qzioreat the topic11:31
qziothis channel is for natty stuff. you're more likely to get answers in #ubuntu. Please ask your question there.11:32
dracotuxok, thnx for that, try it there as well11:33
DJKorbitgood morning11:33
DJKorbitmaybe you can help me on this, since i haven't found a solution11:33
DJKorbitcan i define a different sources.list to be used by apt-get11:33
DJKorbitto be able to use apt-get as a regular user?11:34
qzioDJKorbit: i Don't think a different sources.list will enable you to install packages as a general user.12:01
DJKorbiti don't want to install packages12:05
DJKorbiti just want to apt-get source12:05
DJKorbiti'll explain what i want to do12:05
DJKorbiti'm involved in the development of a portuguese ubuntu based distro12:06
DJKorbitwe were using mandriva but the next version will be ubuntu based12:06
DJKorbiti'm using apt-mirror to mirror natty12:06
DJKorbitfrom the NEW file generated by apt-mirror with the listing of all downloaded files i want to filter the names of all downloaded packages12:07
DJKorbitfor each package i want to replace the new code with our existing code in our svn repo12:08
DJKorbitso, i want to exec a "apt-get source <package>" and commit the files i get to our svn server12:08
DJKorbitsince i'm currently using a mandriva machine i'll have to install apt-get on my user space and run it against a sources.list that should point to my new repo created by apt-mirror12:10
DJKorbitgot the point?12:10
DJKorbiti think i have an alternative to using apt-get source12:13
DJKorbitmaybe fetch the files directly from the mirrored repo12:16

evilvishdoes anyone remember how to change the notify-osd slot allocation to dynamic? instead of the fixed slots.. iirc there was a gconf key somewhere..16:01
zniavre_don't you need a patched notify stuff?16:07
evilvishzniavre_: oh? i thought it was an option and we needed to just add the gconf16:07
evilvish similar to the gravity one16:08
coz_hey guys, with classic gnome I see the icons on the desktop are space about 100 pixels from the left edge of the screen  as if  Unity launcher was in use...   http://dl.dropbox.com/u/132551/screenshots/icons.png    any way around this?16:08

evilvishzniavre_: yea, i saw that.. but could not find the specific gconf key.16:12
evilvishzniavre_: maybe like what you mention it needs ppa16:12
evilvishzniavre_: thanks.. i think i'll give up now ;)16:13
zniavre_i did not try this16:16
zniavre_this seems to work > gconftool-2 --set /apps/notify-osd/gravity --type int 116:17
evilvishzniavre_: yea, that works. the bubble pops up in the middle , and yea, you are right, it is hardcoded  in the src ยป http://leolik.blogspot.com/2009/11/notify-osd-ubuntu-910.html16:20

coz_rahter capabilities of the chip17:10
dupondjebtw, Unity seems cool, but to bad it takes alot of place on the screen17:11
coz_dupondje,   yeah I dont use unity i switch to classic gnome17:12
coz_dupondje,  on a dual monitor set up  ,, global menu is useless  and slows down productivity17:13
litropyHi, peeps. When I bot up, the user switcher which wold usually display my only user account, which I would click then log in, doesn't display my user. All I have is the background, the user switcher rectangle, the ubuntu logo, and my computer's name underneath. The switcher is not frozen, for when I click my computer's name, the text switches t "Ubuntu 10.10."18:12
litropyhow do I upgrade to natty via bash?19:31
litropysudo sed -i 's/maverick/natty/g' /etc/apt/sources.list && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade19:35

zniavre_im using it on vbox so it's not so much irritatings (not daily use)20:47
zniavre_what is irritating it's this unity who does not work on vbox4 here20:48
zniavre_coz_,  one bug i find strange it's the right clic on the right side of the top panel20:51
zniavre_but the left side does right clic like normal20:51
coz_zniavre_,  when it brings up "About"  and "Lock to Panel"  menu ?20:52
zniavre_coz_ exactly20:53

multiplatinumwill the appmenu still suck in 11.04?21:34
multiplatinumwill there be a way to remove it then?21:34
charlie-tcadon't know21:35
rwwmultiplatinum: if you're talking about the stopgap measure that opens Nautilus with the applications folder when you click on the applications button, then no, that's a stopgap measure until there's a real applications launcher.21:36
rwwif you'21:36
multiplatinumi mean the improper rendering of menus21:36
rwwah. no idea.21:36
multiplatinumand lack of support for other toolkits than Qt, GTK and Gecko21:37
charlie-tcaI just figured anybody that decided it already sucks and didn't expand, must be gonna see the same results21:37
rwwI think the whole menu-at-top-of-screen thing is silly, so I haven't been paying attention21:37
multiplatinumit's great for small screens like shuttleworth said in his announcement but now they're bringing it to the desktop which contradicts his announcement LOL21:38
charlie-tcaContradicts how? He never said it wasn't suitable for desktops, did he?21:39
multiplatinumhe kinda did u know21:40
multiplatinum"only for netbooks since only those have small screens"21:41
multiplatinuma 24 inch monitor doesnt need it lol21:41
charlie-tcaHello, BUGabundo21:42
yofelhi BUGabundo21:44
rwwmultiplatinum: yeah. not the first time he's done stuff like that, and probably won't be the last :(21:44
multiplatinumlame right21:45
BUGabundohi guys21:45
litropyI need to do what wubildr does, without wubildr. Because I don't have Windows on this machine.22:46
VolkodavAnybody got the symbol not found error after recent upgrade ? Mine says error symbol not found :'grub_env_export' and gets me to grub rescue cmd - I chrooted in the system , did another upgrade, ran update-grub, checked BIOS for correct drive - everything seems OK ////....22:50
Volkodavstill not bootable22:50
charlie-tcalitropy: wubi is a way to install ubuntu as a windows program, without windows, it won't work22:51
litropycharlie-tca: Hm. then perhaps my troubleshooting has sent me down the wrong path. When I boot into recovery mode, I get, "Cannot open root device" with my root partition's uuid "or unknown block(0,0)23:10
charlie-tcaIt means the uid is wrong for the drive. That was easy to fix in grub legacy, but I don't know how to change it in grub 223:13
ubottuGRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub223:13
litropycharlie-tca: it does have the correct uuid ..23:15
litropycharlie-tca: when I boot into my other partition (using grub2) and ls -l .../by-uuid, it's identical to the uuid listed in recovery mode23:17
charlie-tcahm, Then I am wrong, huh?23:18
litropycharlie-tca: I don't know. I'm just providing info.23:19
