DoyleHi Folks. I just ran some updates and one of them rearranged my grub.conf file. Does anyone know if it backed up the old one somewhere?01:57
DoyleBetter question. Is there a way to impose a custom grub.conf file that won't be overwritten by updates in the future?02:05
DoyleI'll brb02:08
Doyleany suggestions?02:50

JeZ-l-Lee_is the mailing list working ?19:37
cantusfirst time on xubuntu; am trying to do sth with contrast on an old laptop; my hardware controls for brightness work, yet i need to change contrast; tried to look for some knobs in settings (didnt find anything); tried gxvattr (cant use it), tried display calibrator (gui to xgamma - doesnt work for me); any other options?19:47
orngjce223I know /nothing/ about displays. Try #xfce or #ubuntu19:48
Sysior wait for a while and see if somebody knows19:48
cantussure... thx19:49
JeZ-l-Lee_on two separate computer Xubuntu 11.04 shows two volume meters in panel - any ideas?19:50
orngjce223Is it the "mixer" applet? You can just right-click and remove those, not sure about the other one though19:51
Sysisettings → sessions and startup → autostart → take off tap from sound/pulseaudio/something19:51
JeZ-l-Lee_that works, thanks19:53

JeZ-l-Lee_any top secret plans for Xubuntu 11.10 ?20:24
JeZ-l-Lee_will XFCE be updated for this release?20:24
knomeprobably not, since we only just got 4.8 for 11.0420:24
JeZ-l-Lee_my only complaint about current XFCE 4.8 is that items on panels can't be placed anywhere on the panel20:25
TheSheepthey can't?20:28
lefthandmanreally? on my previous distro (which ran xfce) items could be moved around on panels20:28
lefthandmanI mean, unless you're talking about "floaters"20:28
lefthandmanin which case, it makes sense. The ends do not meet the required means20:28
lefthandmanalso, if you tell me more about what you want20:29
lefthandmanI could try and hack it together20:29
JeZ-l-Lee_well for example: I like the clock to be in center of a panel - but when I add clock to panel it defaults to the left side and can't be moved to center20:29
JeZ-l-Lee_have to use spacers to get clock to center20:30
TheSheepyou can move it just fine20:30
TheSheepJeZ-l-Lee_: hmm, ok, soryr, that was in 4.620:32
JeZ-l-Lee_4.6 allowed items on panel to be moved anywhere on panel ? - why was this feature taken away in 4.8 ?20:33
TheSheepJeZ-l-Lee_: I remember that I could do it as some point and that it was very annoying20:34
JeZ-l-Lee_I think allowing panel items to be placed anywhere on the panel is a good feature20:37
JeZ-l-Lee_allows for more flexible customization20:37
TheSheepyou can still do it, with spacers20:37
sparkiezhappy fourth everyone!20:42
elrosxfce 4.10 is scheduled for release in january 2012, so we can expect it to arrive in the new LTS20:53
knomei don't want to be killjoy or too negative, but that schedule might very well be postponed :)20:54
elrosI have faith in every wiki article I have edited20:56
JeZ-l-Lee_is it too early to upgrade to 4.10 beta on Xubuntu 11.04 ?20:57
elrosis there a PPA for it?20:57
JeZ-l-Lee_I did upgrade xfce-panel on my 11.04 to the xfce-panel on 11.10 alpha20:58
JeZ-l-Lee_which allows for window buttons to be rearranged20:59
JeZ-l-Lee_I like XFCE - it works mostly like classic Gnome - and it does not take much resources21:05
TheSheepyeah, "no surprises" should be the motto21:06
TheSheepexcept that sometimes there are some surprises leaking from gnome :(21:06
JeZ-l-Lee_anyway to make window titlebars semi-transparent ?21:36
JeZ-l-Lee_I miss this feature in Gnome21:36
Sysisee window manager tweaks, compositing21:40
Mandrewhello is there anyway for me to save all the PPAs i have in the software sources? im going to delete this distro that im running and wipe the hdd21:54
knomeMandrew, they should be listed in /etc/apt/sources.list afaik21:55
Mandrewso its just to copy past that back into my new install?21:55
knomeyup, and after that 'sudo apt-get update' :)21:56
knome(or update from synaptic)21:56
knomeplease check first if the PPA's really are at that file though :)21:56
Sysithey can also be in files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/21:56
knomewherever they are, it is just a matter of copy+paste21:57
knomeSysi, are you on the devel ML?21:57
Mandrewok thanks21:58
knomeSysi, oki21:58
SysiI'm not very good with mail21:58
knomewell you can check my latest msg in the archives and tell me if you are interested anyway :)21:59
elrosMandrew: you have to copy the lines from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ AND add the keys again after the install22:02
Mandrewelros, how do i do that?22:03
knomeor just use 'sudo apt-add-repository REPOSITORY_URL'22:03
elrosyou can do it by sudo apt-key add ssh_key.key, where ssh_key.key contains the signing key for the repo22:03
knomeelros, ^ that should do it as well22:03
Sysijust adding lines should works, at least apt just asks next time you're using it22:03
* Sysi always done PPAs manually22:04
Mandrewelros, i got like 30+ repos that i want to reinstall again so i was thinking of going a as easy way as possible22:04
elrosyou can save them manually by going to launchpad PPA, click "technical details" and save the signing key file22:05
elrosthe easiest is to add them with that apt-add-repo command22:05
elrosthen you have a separate file for every repo you add22:06
elrosI like to have them in a single file22:06
elrosyou can install packages from unsigned repos, but ubuntu wants to confirm every package install22:07
Mandrewa lot to wrap my head around :D im just a newbie ;)22:09
elrosok, then learn sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa and forget about what I said :)22:10
SysiI don't really know about gui client but adding lines to sources.list and then apt-get update ; install has always just worked22:10
elrosin synaptic you can use the software sources22:11
JeZ-l-Lee_I'm probably not the only person here who left Gnome and regular Ubuntu for XFCE on Xubuntu22:35
JeZ-l-Lee_Gnome 2.x was great, but Gnome 3/Unity are just terrible22:37
SysiI actually like gnome3 quite much, I hated old gnome22:37
Sysisomething mixing unity/gnome3 would be perfect22:38
SysiI'm propably still going back to xfce on my desktop22:38
JeZ-l-Lee_XFCE is very similar to classic Gnome 2.x22:39
Sysinot in the parts I like in xfce22:39
JeZ-l-Lee_I just hope XFCE does not become another KDE22:45
JeZ-l-Lee_tried KDE, made me feel ill22:46
PhosphenesHow is xubuntu pronounced?22:47
Phosphenessubuntu, zubuntu?22:47

PhosphenesThat is funny.23:36
JeZ-l-Lee_what does Gigolo do ?23:38
knomeconnect/mount to networks23:38
JeZ-l-Lee_sounds sexy23:39
PhosphenesThat's why it's called gigolo.23:39

JeZ-l-Lee_I figured out how to make window titlebars transparent, but am wondering how to make them fuzzy like Windows(R) Aero style23:49
