charliemacWhat command do I enter where it says "grub>" on the GNU GRUB screen the first time I try to load Ubuntu?02:07
MrChrisDruifcharliemac: I don't know, but I think your grub is borked?02:08
charliemacWhen I type "02:08
charliemacexit," a UNetbootin window opens asking me if I want to try #lubuntu without installing, install Lubuntu, or check disc for defects.02:09
MrChrisDruifDid you install it already?02:10
charliemacYeah, i installed Xubuntu through WUBI because I couldn't figure out a way to get Lubuntu on there without a cd-rom or USB-boot option (I was planning to use LXDE w/ SLiM, anyway...)02:13
MrChrisDruifBut you've got a Lubuntu CD in now?02:21
charliemacWill not boot from CD.  I used WUBI to install it through windows02:23
MrChrisDruifYeah, but I was wondering why you got the message about Trying Lubuntu etc...02:24
zeroseven0183charliemac, did your Xubuntu installation via Wubi finished?02:25
MrAnthropeHow do I check the driver version for my graphics card?02:25
charliemacYes, it finished and prompted me to reboot so I did.  When it asked for which OS to boot from, I chose Xubuntu, and got the GNU GRUB screen.02:26
zeroseven0183MrAnthrope: type  dpkg -l | grep <nameofvideocard> in a Terminal02:29
zeroseven0183MrAnthrope: Example, dpkg -l | grep Nvidia02:29
MrAnthropeThank you, zeroseven0183 :)02:29
zeroseven0183charliemac: It seems that the installation was unsuccessful.02:29
zeroseven0183MrAnthrope: Sure.02:29
zeroseven0183charliemac: Can you still boot to Windows?02:30
charliemacLet's see02:30
charliemacYes windows still boots very well02:33
zeroseven0183Have you tried reinstalling Xubuntu?02:34
zeroseven0183If I'm not mistaken, Xubuntu like Ubuntu/Kubuntu has an option to install side-by-side with Windows when you boot from a Live CD/USB.02:35
zeroseven0183I haven't tried doing that via Wubi02:35
charliemacYeah, i thought they were approximately the same02:36
zeroseven0183Because I usually have problems with Wubi02:36
zeroseven0183With Wubi, it will create a "virtual" partition inside your Windows partition.02:36
zeroseven0183With the live CD, you will allocate the partition separate from Windows02:37
zeroseven0183that's why you can easily remove it from Windows. It's like just another Windows application/software.02:37
charliemacYes, through WUBI i gave it 30 gb out of the 80gb hard drife02:37
zeroseven0183I assume you're trying Xubuntu because you have a low-powered computer. Right?02:39
zeroseven0183I suggest you try Lubuntu02:39
Midnightryder2I am running Ubuntu 10.10. I am trying to make "efax-gtk" work. I have installed it from the Software Cente and tried to enter commands from it's website but to no avail. I have read Ubuntu advice but run commands tell me that the files don't exist. When I try to use the GUI it gives me a bunch of error messages. I know my computer has a fax modem but can't seem to connect it with efax-gtk.Does anyone have any suggestion02:42
Midnightryder2s ?02:42
charliemacHow ca I get the live CD?03:14
Midnightryder2charliemac: For Ubuntu 10.10?03:16
Midnightryder2Go to the Ubuntu website and to downloads. Choose either 32-bit or 64-bit and download it to your desktop. Then "Burn Image" to a CD. You can order one from the website but it takes several weeks for delivery.03:19
Midnightryder2It was a 15 minute download for me and I have cable.03:25
aveilleuxMidnightryder2: That's a mirror of Ubuntu, the main site is http://ubuntu.com/03:26
Midnightryder2aveilleux: Thank you. I stand corrected.03:27
aveilleuxhi Midas00704:04
Midas007I'm an embarassed newbie04:04
Midas007i have alot of questions04:05
aveilleuxMidas007: Ask away04:05
Midas007I'm trying to download an audio file04:05
Midas007I can provide the URL to a media player04:05
Midas007and the player plays it04:06
Midas007but i'm unable to find a way to save the audio04:06
aveilleuxMidas007: What player?04:06
Midas007For example, I'm using the Totem Movie Player04:07
Midas007of course I'm using Ubuntu04:07
Midas007Totem Movie Player 2.30.204:07
aveilleuxMidas007: Have you tried plugging the filename into, say, Firefox, then doing File > Save?04:08
Midas007No ... I'll try right now ...04:08
Midas007I'm back ...04:14
Midas007OK, I tried to save with Firefox and it didn't work ...04:14
Midas007I'll try to describe the situation04:14
Midas007The URL is, for example, http://mediasblahblahblah.wmv04:15
Midas007Not the real link though, but if u want it I'll provide it04:15
Midas007Anyway, it ends in .wmv04:16
Midas007When I enter this in Firefox, the Totem Plugin starts up and the song plays04:16
Midas007So the plugin is able to find the actual audio file04:17
Midas007However, when I try to save the content at http://mediasblahblahblah.wmv I get a small file04:17
Midas007About 200 bytes04:18
Midas007That file has more info04:18
Midas007which I think directs the Totem plugin to another location04:19
Midas007And that's the thing with these media players ... they are able to follow along all these redirections04:19
Midas007and I can't04:20
Midas007And I don't know any application that can follow the redirections and fetch the actual audio file04:20
Midas007Is anyone still there?04:24
aveilleuxMidas007: I don't use the standard apps in Ubuntu...04:27
Midas007OK aveilleux04:30
Midas007Do u have a suggestion regarding apps?04:30
aveilleuxMidas007: I use VLC Media Player (sudo apt-get install vlc)04:30
Midas007I see ... and it's in the repository too ...04:31
aveilleuxMidas007: Yeah. I use it on all the platforms I operate on04:31
Midas007Right. I used it in Windows before04:32
Midas007Hmmm. I'll install it right now and give it a try.04:32

Midas007I'll try it right now ...08:58
Midas007Is there a rule regarding posting a real URL here?08:58
hobgoblinnot that I'm aware of - but if it turned out to be music that you should pay for I would ignore the request for help ;)08:59
Midas007It is a song. It's a stream of a live performance. It's located on the site of a radio station.09:00
Midas007That particular performance is not for sale09:00
Midas007It can be played repeatedly from the site but my connection is not good enough to keep doing it that way. That's why I'd like to download it.09:01
hobgoblinthen I'll not help you anymore I'm afraid09:01
Midas007So you're sure I'm not allowed to download it?09:02
Midas007Someone here, earlier, told me that VLC could save whatever it could play. It seemed like it was OK then to save what I could play with VLC.09:03
Midas007Anyway, VLC did not work. I couldn't figure out how to make it work.09:04
Midas007wget didn't work either. All I get is a small file of 240 bytes.09:05

geirhaThen in the view over your virtual machines, select the machine you want to change.13:44
geirhaThen click on "Storage" for that VM.13:44
geirhaClick on the CD-icon and add the iso file to it13:45
geirhaThere's a dropdown menu containing iso-files you've used before. If your iso is not in there, click the icon with a folder and a green up-arrow right next to it, then browse to the iso file.13:46
AJH101what type of drive will it be, sata? (sorry for the qn)13:50
