Guest55684No networks show up under wireless networks can anyone help?03:06
zrutyIs the wireless switched on?03:08
zrutySometimes there is a switch somewhere03:08
Guest55684Yea the light is on but if I do iwconfig it doesn't have a wlan003:09
Guest55684Any ideas?03:10
zrutyIs it a USB or a PCI thing?03:11
Guest55684PCI it is a hp ze5000 and it is built it03:12
zrutyyou can do sudo lspci in a terminal window03:12
zrutyAnd see if it is in there03:12
Guest55684there is a network controller and a ethernet controller03:13
Guest55684Intersil Corportation Prism 2.5 Wavelan Chipset03:13
Guest55684How do I know which one it is?03:14
zrutyGood question...03:19
zrutyEthernet is wired03:19
zrutySo it must be the other one03:19
zrutyWhat with ifconfig?03:20
Guest55684Doesn't show any wlan003:21
Guest55684I tried installing the driver but I don't know if I have the right one and it is hard to find03:21
Guest55684It doesn't show up there either03:21
zrutyI am starting my xubuntu lapdog...03:21
zrutyYes, I have never heard of intersil03:21
Guest55684I guess I just need to try to find the right driver03:22
Guest55684It is an HP ZE5000 and there is no drivers on the HP website and I can't really find out what wireless card it has...03:22
Guest5568411b minipci AMB is what is says on the sticker on the card03:23
zrutysudo lsmod | more03:24
zrutyDo you see any module that looks like it may be the wireless?03:25
Guest55684No not really I am searching for the driver now though...03:25
Guest55684The only driver files I can find are freaking .exe files03:26
zrutyWhen I google  Intersil Corportation Prism 2.5 Wavelan and Ubuntu I see a few posts for ubuntu forum come up03:28
zrutyndiswrapper is a .. tool... that you can use the Windows driver under linux03:28
zrutyWorks 99% of the time, used it myself a long time ago..03:28
Guest55684I know but the problem is I can't just find the drivers, there is only .exe files03:29
Guest55684I might of found it hold on...03:31
zrutyYes, I too have an old network controller for which no specific linux driver exists. No choice but to use ndiswrapper.03:33
zrutyOR, since yours is also old, buy a newer network controller.03:34
zrutyN is the standard now, people are ridding themselves of (A/B/)G cards.03:34

Bofhzilla's a silly problem really08:51
Bofhzillacan't get the option for 1280x102408:52
Unit193Did you configure X?08:52
Bofhzillaall advice i can turn up via google is " edit xorg.conf" ( doesn't exist) or dpkg-reconfigure ( does nothing)08:52
ubottuThe X Window System is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart your X, type « sudo /etc/init.d/?dm restart » in a console - To fix screen resolution or other X problems: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution08:52

ljsoftnetis there a harddisk load monitor applet for xubuntu?13:11
knomeoh, applet13:14
knomeljsoftnet, you can use xfapplet to use a gnome panel applet if there is one for gnome :)13:14
ljsoftnetis used it, but it goes back to its default setting after reboot13:15
ljsoftnetknome is used it, but it goes back to its default setting after reboot13:15
knomeljsoftnet, when logging out, do you select 'save session' ?13:16
ljsoftnetknome didn't know that13:17
knometry that, and see if the applet is working after reboot/-login :)13:17
ljsoftnetknome ok, rebooting13:18
ljsoftnetknome what does save sessions do?13:24
knomeljsoftnet, umm, save the session :))13:24
ljsoftnetknome it saves the session of xfce's panels?13:25
knomeljsoftnet, should save that too, and any applications running13:25
ljsoftnetknome ok thanks13:26
knomeno problem. did it work?13:26
ljsoftnetknome yes it worked13:27
knomeokay, great13:27
ljsoftnetknome what about system loader, what does "swap" monitor, is it the harddisk?13:28
knomeljsoftnet, yes and no - swap is an area in the hard disk that is used like ram when/if you run out of ram13:29
ljsoftnetknome ah ok13:30
knomeljsoftnet, say, if you have 1GB of ram, the system starts using the swap partition (a bit before) when 1GB ram is used13:30
ljsoftnetknome ah thanks man13:30

Guest62952guys I need help. I was in the window manager settings playing around with window borders, and then I scrolled all the way to the bottom and a black screen flashed with some kind of error text I couldn't see and then I went back to the login screen. It does it every time I log in unless I go to the recovery console20:14
=== Guest62952 is now known as mister_m
mister_mdoes anyone know what could be going on? or perhaps where I could view the error message?20:15
Sysilog in to console and "rm -rf ~/.config/xfce4" it will destroy your settings20:15
Sysiit's propably the one known bug with one wm theme20:16
mister_mSysi: ah :(20:16
mister_mSysi: I'll try that and get back to you20:17
=== matthew_ is now known as mister_m
mister_mSysi: that worked.20:25
mister_mSysi: thank you20:25
Sysinp (now you can scroll through all settings again!)20:26
mister_mSysi: I'll make back ups of my settings20:28
mister_mbefore I start doing that20:28

charlie-tcaxubuntu does not use kde22:47
charlie-tcait uses Xfce with some of gnome22:47
knomeneither does it use gnome22:47
Shysterwhen i installed it on my laptop it the gui looked like a kde themed gui, with the menu in the bottom left an so on22:48
Shysternow on my desktop it looks like a gnome gui with the applications/places menu at the top22:49
Shysterso why would it install differant22:49
charlie-tcasounds like you ran a kde session before22:50
charlie-tcainstead of the xubuntu session22:50
Shysterand sorry about my confusion of the gui's i am still a beginner to linux22:50
Shysterno it was xubuntu22:50
Shysterwhen it loaded it had a tips menu pop up talking about xubuntu and had the mouse background an so on22:51
Shysterwould it make a differance in the versions? 10.04long term or 10.10?22:52
Shysteron the gui that it uses i mean?22:52
charlie-tcaxubuntu has never put the menu in the bottom left22:53
Shysterthen what am i seeing?22:53
knomeShyster, take a screenshot and upload it to imagebin and we'll see22:54
Shysteri think its because of my laptop has 10.10 on it22:55
Shysteran my desktop i put 10.0422:55
Shysterbut i will upload a screen shot now22:55
Shystertheres the screen shot23:01
Shysterfrom my laptop23:01
Shysterand this is the one of my desktop http://imagebin.org/14578423:03
knomemmhmm, that's definitely xubuntu, but it might be the xfce session (instead of xubuntu session)23:03
Shysteryea, an i really like it.23:04
knomewhich one?23:04
Shysterlaptop gui23:05
knomeright, well you can always change the panels to be as in the laptop screenshot23:05
Shysterlike i said i just switched to linux from windows. i had some classes over linux in college but never really used to much. so i been searching for a flavour i like to stick with23:07
Shysteranother question real quick i have a 20" LCD display on my desktop an xunbuntu detects it as a crt monitor and cuts off some of the right side of the screen23:09
Shysteri have tryed changing the resolution but doesn't help23:09
knomewhat graphics card?23:10
Shysterumm its a nvidia23:10
Shysterlet me check what kind23:10
knomehave you tried nvidia-settings?23:10
knomethat's a pretty powerful tool23:10
Shysteryea i have23:11
Shysterthats what detects my monitor as a ctr o.O23:12
knomewell, you really should be able to sort it with that23:12
knomedoesn't really matter :)23:12
knomeyou only want to change the monitor layout23:12
Shysterbut it doesn't give me any wide screen resolutions as a crt :(23:13
Shysterany ideas?23:18
jayantHello Everyone, i am using ubuntu 10.10 that works real slow on my system. I want to switch over to xubuntu. Will installing the xubuntu-desktop package make my system work fine ?23:56
knomejayant, that might bring some help. how much ram do you have?23:57
jayantknome: 256MB RAM23:58
knomeokay. the pc won't be lightning fast with xubuntu either, then, i'm afraid.23:58
knomehowever, good application choices can ease the situation23:58
jayantknome: then what else can i try to make it work fast ?23:58
knomethere is lubuntu, which is even lighter than xubuntu23:59
knomethough i really suggest a reinstall anyway23:59
