jordan3456could anyone here point me to a good website for setting up an ati card _without_ having to use xorg?12:19
jordan3456I did it in gnome and now I forget how I did it12:20
jordan3456oh no, 9200 if I remember.  I'm on another machine now.12:22
Sysiif it's old it should work as well as possible by default12:23
jordan3456when running gnome I used the opensource driver, not the ati driver12:23
Sysishouldn't need setting up12:23
jordan3456don't know.  Under the "display" option in settings xubuntu only shows one monitor.  xrandr shows two.12:24
Sysiuse arandr if you want GUI12:24
jordan3456okay.  installed whatever arandr version is in the repository.12:26
jordan3456will arandr let me assign one monitor to the right and one to the left, as if I were manually entering the values into xorg?12:27
jordan3456excellent.  Let me give that a try.  I'll do anything to avoid xorg.12:34
Sysii guess you mean xorg.conf12:35
jordan3456you bet. terrible stuff.  I'm glad that it's not really necessary anymore.12:35
Sysiwayland is coming12:35
jordan3456y'know, I'm not sure if I want to run wayland.12:36
jordan3456most of my computers are too old for that12:36
jordan3456I can barely run gnome on my 1 ghz/1gb ram machine.  this laptop is 64-bit, but I still run 32 bit kernel and xubuntu on it12:37
Sysii ran 32bit xubuntu for year even after gettin 4GB ram, recently updated to 6412:38
jordan3456this machine is 4gb ram also.  I don't play games, so I don't need a big computer.  lxde is too buggy for me.12:40
jordan3456but even that would be okay.12:40
Sysii like xfce:s preferences12:40
jordan3456that, and lxde doesn't have an easy, one click way to make launchers.  Rather one has to use ln or make desktop files.  lxde isn't ready for prime time.12:41
jordan3456anyway, thanks for the help.12:42

mterryHello!  I'm doing some work on indicator-datetime, and it's preference dialog now covers the same functionality as time-admin.  It also has controls for indicator-datetime.  So for Ubuntu the Product, I want to not have time-admin, but I'm assuming it would still be useful for xubuntu?  Do you guys use indicator-datetime?17:39
charlie-tcabetter asked in #xubuntu-devel, where I have copied that too17:40
ochosimterry: it's not used by default atm, but generally indicator-support is there by default now17:41
mterryochosi, ok.  I'm trying to decide whether to split time-admin out to a separate package or just get rid of it.  Sounds like you guys aren't requiring it by itself17:41
charlie-tcaIf the user chooses to remove indicators, will they still have time functions?17:42
mterryoh wait, you meant indicator-datetime isn't used by default17:42
ochosixfce4-panel has a few time-plugins itself17:42
ochosiso we're using that atm17:42
mterrycharlie-tca, the preference dialog is part of the indicator-datetime package right now.  depends how you remove indicators17:42
ochositbh i haven't tried the datetime-indicator in natty17:42
mterryochosi, ok, so you don't even use time-admin right now?17:42
mterry"you" = "xubuntu"17:43
ochosimterry: atm you can only remove indicators from the panel by uninstalling them, the plugin isn't very advanced yet17:43
mterryochosi, well, indicator-datetime-preferences actually has a checkbox for showing the clock or not17:43
ochosimterry: well give me 5min and i'll reboot to my natty testinstall17:44
mterryochosi, heh, well, that preference doesn't work right now... but you'll get the idea.  i'm working on that right now17:44
ochosimterry: the time-admin is installed by default17:46
ochosiit's in our menu too17:46
mterryochosi, indicator-datetime is in the menu or the gnome clock is?17:46
ochosineither, xfce4-clock plugin is ;)17:46
mterryochosi, :)  OK.  So...  the indicator-datetime bits of the preference dialog would not be appropriate for xubuntu then17:47
ochosiyep i guess that's the conclusion17:47
ochosiok the clock seems to work ok17:47
ochosii mean indicator-datetime17:47
mterryochosi, so perhaps I'll just split it out for safety's sake, and a seeding change would be needed to add it back in?  unless you guys decide you love indicator-datetime, but since we're post FF, I guess not17:48
ochosiyeah, possibly we can't add it anymore, don't know, that's something we'd have to discuss17:48
ochosibut thanks for the heads-up, we might well look into that for the next cycle17:49
ochosiindicators were introduced quite late this cycle, you know17:49
mterryochosi, OK.  They were added quite late to xubuntu?17:49
ochosimterry: yes, the support was kinda broken before17:49
mterryoh well neat that it's working now.  I didn't know they had problems.  I'm guilty of not paying close attention to xubuntu17:50
mterrydespite working with cody-somerville sometimes  :)17:50
ochosisry mterry, g2g now17:50
mterryk, thanks!17:50
