lrussellI just installed BitTorrent 5.2.2. It said it installed, but it isnt showing up in the apps list. Anything wrong?00:01
bazhang!find bitttorrent00:06
ubottuPackage/file bitttorrent does not exist in maverick00:06
lrussellI'm back. anyone see my question from a min. ago?00:07
bazhang!find bittorrent00:07
ubottuFound: bittorrent, python-bittorrent, bittorrent-gui, qbittorrent, qbittorrent-dbg00:07
lrussellI left...00:07

lrussellis what I downloaded a virus or something?00:07
bazhang5.2.2? that seems wildly different from the ubuntu version00:07
bazhangyou probably got the number wrong00:08
bazhangbetter to use the other torrent clients00:08
bazhangand never install 3rd party stuff, use repos00:08
ubottuTorrent clients: Transmission (GTK and terminal-based), Deluge-Torrent, Freeloader, BitStormLite, BitTornado-GUI (GTK), KTorrent (KDE), QTorrent (Qt), Azureus (Java), TorrentFlux (web-based), bittornado, rTorrent, cTorrent, bittorrent, aria2 (terminal-based) - FAQ: http://www.bittorrent.com/FAQ.html - See also !P2P00:09
lrussellthe comments were good00:09
lrussellso the one i downloaded is a virus?00:10
bazhangzero reason to use 3rd party stuff when the torrent clients in ubuntu are so good00:10
bazhangwhats the default for xubuntu? transmission?00:10
lrussellyes, and i didnt like it00:10
lrussellso i switched to the one i have on windows00:11
bazhangbreaking package management is not the way to go00:11
lrusselland the linux version of it isnt working00:11
bazhangmore 3rd party stuff?00:12
lrussellhow do i get rid of it when it when it isnt even listed?00:12
bazhanghow was it installed00:12
lrussellthrough a .deb00:12
bazhangdpkg -r file.deb00:13
lrussellwhere does it have to be kocated, the deb00:13
bazhangyou can hardly expect 3rd stuff to be supported, stuff that breaks package management00:14
lrusselli enter in the code in terminal and it says i need super user00:15
lrussellbut im on the main root acount00:16
Unit193sudo !!00:16
bazhangroot account?00:17
bazhangthats disabled by default00:17
knomelrussell, you probably mean the main account, or have you enabled root yourself?00:17
lrussellhow do i uninstall it...? im stuck00:18
bazhangI told you00:19
lrussellit work work even with sudo00:20
lrussellit does take my pass.00:20
lrussellfile name of package i installed: bittorrent_5.2.2_python2.4.deb00:20
bazhangso sudo dkpg -r nameofdeb.deb00:21
lrussellwhat folder do i put the deb in?00:21
lrusselli keep getting an error00:28
knomelrussell, do you *need* to have bittorrent, or is any other torrent client okay as well?00:28
lrusselli wanted bittorrent00:29
knomelrussell, for any specific reason?00:30
lrussellits layout00:30
lrusselli just wanna get rid of it... it wont even show up in the app list00:33
lrussellerror: bit.ly/h3OUg600:35
lrusselli wish i would have known this before00:36
knome'sudo dpkg -r bittorrent' ?00:38
lrusselltrying to get rid of it00:38
knomedid you try that command? (without bittorrent-*)00:39
bazhanginstall bittorrent from the repos if you *must* have it00:39
knomebazhang, afaik the version in the repository is quite old00:40
bazhangthe difficulty you are now experiencing is one reason to never use 3rd party stuff00:40
bazhangknome, never heard of anyone who prefers it to the ones included with ubuntu00:40
knome...unless you know what you are doing :)00:40
knomeme neither, but then again, i don't use torrents much00:41
bazhangI have *one* PPA and thats it.00:41
lrussellit isnt showing in my app list. but opening the .deb says it is installed00:41
bazhangprobably remove that as ogmrip does what handbrake does and more00:41
lrussellbrb 10 min00:42
bazhanglrussell, leaving it wont harm your system00:42
knomeif one installs a package via dpkg, shouldn't it show in synaptic as well?00:44
lrussellhow do i get rid of it... :/ command line isn't working00:49
lrussellanyone still gere i was talking to a min ago?00:51
lrusselldoes lubuntu have the same wifi support as xubuntu?00:51
bazhangshould do00:52
lrussellI'm thinking bout switching00:52
lrussellnow that i destroyed my install of xubuntu basicly00:52
bazhanghardly destroyed00:52
lrussellyeam but i want to get rid of it00:53
lrussell* yeah00:53
lrussellthe bittorrent, from 3rd party00:53
lrussellgah, my pc is too old for xubuntu00:55
lrusselli wish my laptop would stop droping wifi00:56
lrussellyay! i found the 3rd part bittorrent in software center! removing00:57
lrussellis there a torrent client similar to utorrent for xubuntu?00:59
lrussellthink this is safe?01:04
XubuntuKrisHow do I add an icon to my top status bar?01:04
XubuntuKris*I guess it's called a status bar.01:04
lrussellis utorrent for linux safe?01:06
knomelrussell, please install something from the repositories so you don't break your system, as you clearly do not know what you are doing01:12
knomeXubuntuKris, panel? right-click and select 'add new items', then add 'launcher'01:13
lrussellI'm new to linux... sorta01:13
knomelrussell, yeah - that's completely okay - but you should do things in the way that suits your skill level01:13
knomelrussell, have you tried transmission?01:14
knomelrussell, it's the default torrent client in xubuntu01:14
lrussellyes i have01:14
lrussellI'm more of a windows pro01:14
lrussellI wanted to try something new01:15
knome!torrent > lrussell01:15

ZiefinI have a quick question if anyone can answer this01:35
XubuntuKrisI'm sure you can just ask Ziefin, and someone will probably answer...01:35
ZiefinWhich variant of linux is faster Xubuntu or Ubuntu?01:35
XubuntuKrisI'm no expert, but someone here is.lol01:36
likemindeadXubuntu tends to be snappier, Ziefin.01:36
Ziefinthat's what i hear01:36
likemindeadEspecially on older hardware.01:36
Ziefinwell my hardware is definitely not old :)01:36
Ziefini just hear that Xubuntu has a faster response time than Ubuntu01:37

XubuntuKrisSo, how do I put a link to Chromium browser next to the firefox link on the top panel?02:06
gudmundXubuntuKris, why? Now we got Firefox 4 :)02:19
gudmundXubuntuKris, You have to add a launcher to the panel02:20
* XubuntuKris hates firefox02:33
XubuntuKrisSorry for the delay02:33
XubuntuKrisI added a launcher to the panel...it defaulted on the right side next to the clock..I want it on the left next to the "Applications" and "Places" dropdown menus02:35
XubuntuKrisAnd of course he quit...and I'm talking to thin air..02:35
XubuntuKrisAnybody have any input for this?02:35
XubuntuKrisI tried to google it already and couldn't find jack.02:35
XubuntuKrisAll google comes up with is forums and stuff that require coding...such a simple thing should not require any code unless I'm using some distro that does require code02:36
Unit193XubuntuKris: Got it?02:49
XubuntuKrisright click. click move02:50
XubuntuKrisDoes Compiz work on Xubuntu the same way it does on Ubuntu?03:03
XubuntuKrisfor having 52 people in this chat, it's aweful dead03:09
XubuntuKriswow, I'm gonna go ask in #ubuntu03:12
XubuntuKrisDoes anyone in here feel like answering a question?04:13
XubuntuKrisNobody responds to someone that needs help, but I bet if I started flaming someone or spamming, I'd get a response04:15

xiaoshenbut now in xubuntu 10.10 i can't find rdp in the protocol option08:50
Sysicheck if you have remmina and possible plugins, use your favourite packet manager08:52
xiaoshenso i must install remmina 1st08:54
Sysiyou propably have vinagre, it doesn't support rdp08:54
xiaoshenSysi i don't know thename is vinagre or what , i only know that i fount remote desktop viewer in application>network>remote desktop viewer09:00

xiaoshenmy desktop background became black and white color11:07
xiaoshenanybody can help:(11:07
knomewhat do you mean by "black and white color" ?11:13
knomedo you have desktop icons or not?11:13
xiaosheni have color picture then i set it as desktop background and it's normal but then i play with the brightness a little then after that my destop background become greyscale only black and whitr11:15
knomesounds like a possible bug in xfce11:15
lolmausI've booted up a Xubuntu 10.10 cd to install it. But the install shortcut won't work: the wizard launches and disappears immediately.11:16
xiaoshenhi knome i solved my sound problem11:16
xiaoshenwhat should i do knome11:16
knomexiaoshen, did you also tweak the saturation rate?11:17
xiaoshento fix my desktop background11:17
knomelolmaus, did you check the cd integrity?11:17
knomewhat's the saturation value then?11:17
knomeyeah, that's as it should11:17
xiaoshenit's the default11:17
lolmausknome, nope. But it had never failed yet.11:17
knomelolmaus, you have used the same cd to install to other pc's?11:18
xiaoshenanyway to fix it :(11:18
knomexiaoshen, my best bet would be... open the wallpaper in gimp and tweak the brightness there, and then add the background as is11:18
knomexiaoshen, you can also file a but in xfdesktop11:19
xiaoshenmy wallpaper is ok11:19
xiaoshenif i open with image viewer it looks ok11:19
knomexiaoshen, but you want to increase it's brightness?11:19
knomeso you want to.. what?11:20
knomewhat is not working, if it's not about the wallpaper11:20
xiaoshennow the problem is my desktop background become greyscale11:20

knomeor anything >111:21
knomedoes it render the image non-b&w ?11:21
xiaoshenoh it's normal now11:22
knomeno problem11:22
xiaoshenbut i think that i don't hcahnge the saturation before11:23
knomeyou can probably set it back to 1 now11:23
knomefor some reason, i think xfce thought the saturation was 0 even if you saw 111:23
xiaoshenthe default is 111:23
knomeyup. :)11:24
xiaoshenoh by the way i fix my sound problem by adding options snd-hda-intel model=laptop-automute at theend of alsa-base.conf11:24

xiaosheni see^11:33
xiaoshenknome: do you think it's fine if i remove vinagre and replace it with remmina11:34
knomexiaoshen, sure, if you like11:35

xiaoshenwell i don't want to download again , coz i have finished streaming the video11:39
knomexiaoshen, check the addon11:40
istokunfortunately, you have to, as when you add the extension you have to refresh the page for it to become available.11:40
xiaoshenyou know like when using internet explore if the video has finished streaming i just go to temporary internet files to get the video file11:41
xiaoshencan't do the same way with firefox?11:41
istokprobably, never had to do it like that though11:41

mohadibany idea how i can fix this?14:47

charlie-tcaYou can not change themes?14:48
mohadibaking a screen shot14:48
mohadiband the default theme is not used anymore14:49
mohadibsome old gtk1 looking theem14:49

mohadibi got panels, i have 3 displays, didnt want to post up a huge image14:53
charlie-tcaokay, and you have the desktop image, right?14:53
charlie-tcaand you can not change themes in Applications -> Settings -> window manager?14:53
mohadiber its changing the window decorations, not the gtk theme14:54
charlie-tcawhich icon set is it using? that is in Applications -> Settings -> Appearance14:54
charlie-tcaAppearance also has the gtk themes14:54

charlie-tcaYou haven't upgraded to xfce 4.8 either?14:55
mohadibthis all looked "right" before i installed the nvidia driver14:55
mohadibi did apt update/upgrade14:55
charlie-tcaIt sounds like a driver issue then. Did you install that using "Additional Drivers" ?14:56
mohadibthe install went well as far as i can tell14:56
mohadiball 3 displays working etc14:56
charlie-tcaand you restarted after?14:56
mohadiblooks like this guy is seeing the same problem14:58
charlie-tcaI don't know, when multiple monitors come into play. It does change how things work. I could suggest #ubuntu-x, which deals with things more14:58

chudy_michefxubuntu update manager wants to install gnome apps eg. brasero - should I let it install them?19:01
Sysiyou don't have to19:02
chudy_michefI chose not to when they first appeared - but they keep coming up on the list. How can I make them go away?19:03
charlie-tcaum, update manager should not be installing apps unless you are upgrading19:04
charlie-tcaIt will upgrade the repository though19:04
chudy_michefIs there something wrong in my settings then?19:04
charlie-tcabrasero was a default app in 10.04, I think.19:05
charlie-tcadid you remove it?19:05
knomeyes, brasero is default in 10.0419:06
Sysiit of course updates installed software, idk what can happen with dependencies19:06
* charlie-tca shrugs - let it run, then remove it if you don't want it19:07
knomewell unless an app depends on more libraries than before, no extra libs should be drawn in, really19:07
knomeor remove and then run the upgrades19:07
knomeand you'll save yourself from downloading the upgrade19:08
chudy_michefOkay, I was just concerned because it said "for GNOME"19:08
Sysii have anyway half oh gnome and kde installed, i just clean my menus with aptitude..19:08
Sysignome and kde software should work perfectly on xubuntu19:08
charlie-tcawell, at least until natty, it doesn't seem to like the mix any more. At least, not yet.19:09
chudy_michefI've already got a version of Brasero installed so I might as well download the update - good to know it's the same software and won't cause problems.19:10
