Ace_Hey, I was wondering if anyone could help me add a launcher to my main menu? Its probably a config file I'm just not sure where to find it.11:12
leszekAce_: you mean you want to put a link to the application main menu ? (the one which shows up when clicking on the lubuntu logo) ?11:14
Ace_leszek: Right.  I have a copy of the Firefox 4.0 RC and I want to give it a link in the menu, just not sure where I need to go to add that.11:15
leszekAce_: thats not so easy to do, as the menu is autogenerated from the *.desktop files which sit in /usr/share/applications11:16
leszekSo I suggest to create a .desktop file there (you need root rights to write to /usr/share/applications) with the appropiate entrys for firefox 411:17
Ace_Awesome, exactly what I needed to find, just wasn't sure where to look.  Thanks!11:18
leszekAce_: the desktop file can look like this : http://paste.ubuntuusers.de/399970/11:18
leszekyou might of course need to change the Exec=... line aswell as the icon=... line11:18
Ace_Right, I've dealt with these before, its just been a little while so I had forgotten about them ;)11:19
Ace_Again, many thanks.  Take care.11:20
kristian-aalborghi all14:04
kristian-aalborgif I install lubuntu, then get a new video card - how much work will it be to reconfigure things?14:05
kristian-aalborgin other words, would it be better to wait?14:05
Yorvyk kristian-aalborg, if you keep to the open drivers it shouldn't be a problem as the hardware is detected on boot14:26

bioterror!apt | bonny20:44
ubot5bonny: APT is the Advanced Package Tool, which together with dpkg forms the basic Ubuntu package management toolkit. Short apt-get manual: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGetHowto - Also see !Synaptic (Gnome), !Adept (KDE) or !KPackageKit (KDE)20:44
bioterror!cli | bonny20:44
ubot5bonny: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal or type in it: man intro20:44
head_victimbioterror: if you have a few minuts to help bonny that would be good, I'm in the middle of writing up a job application at the moment20:44

ubot5For multimedia issues, this page has useful information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats - See also https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/musicvideophotos/C/video.html - But please use free formats if you can: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeFormats21:43
