tenachbkerensa: Yeah, WA state. :)06:48
bkerensaNorth, South or Central?06:48
tenachEh, more like central-ish west? Bout half an hour below Seattle.06:49
bkerensaoh ok :) if you were closer to PDX I was gonna say come to global jam we have probably the biggest jam on the west coast planned :D06:50
tenachbkerensa: PDX as in Portland?06:50
bkerensatenach: Yeah06:50
tenachAh, yeah... that's a five hour drive.06:51
tenachAnd I haven't got a vehicle.06:51
bkerensame either :D06:51
tenachbkerensa: I'd love to chat with you later; heading to bed. I should have gone two hours ago...06:52
tenachThat's what I get for playing games, I suppose, haha.06:52
philipballewif i wantn't having a jam here id come to portland!06:52
bkerensaphilipballew: San Diego to PDX... Wow thats a trip even I wouldnt dare do :P06:52
philipballewpeople drive from there to here for school straight06:53
philipballewI drove 10 hours here from sac this week06:53
philipballewwhatt you doin for your jam bkerensa ?06:54
bkerensaphilipballew we will be doing doc, bugs, testing and upgrades and additionally will have a social aspect we have food & beverage catered and then PuppetLabs is lending us their swanky corporate offices and then a few other companies donate a bit of stuff for giveaways :D06:55
bkerensaTook about two weeks to setup06:56
bkerensa=o lots of calls, e-mails etc06:56
philipballewNice! how many total man hours you think?06:56
bkerensaTotal I would say 3-4 solid06:57
bkerensaand this Friday I still have to finalize the logistics and select food stuffs to be eaten06:57
bkerensaI think we have about 25+ people coming as of now hopefully 30 by end of week :D06:58
bkerensaThe reason I put so much effort is because I'm hoping this kickstarts our loco back to life... It has been sputtering for some time :P06:59
philipballewoh nice. yeah. ours is at a local cafe. I think that the place is gonna be good. were gonna have hopefully like 4-5 people. sometimes you have rendom people show up07:00
philipballewi had a ubuntu hour once where 15 people came07:00
philipballewthe next month nobody07:00
philipballewall depends on what people are up to07:00
philipballewthe loco has been fading bkerensa ?07:01
mikdI can't  get the Workspace Switcher to work in the lancher07:02
bkerensaWell yeah... See I never was involved in the loco until like the last release party and only like 5 people showed up and only three of us were actual team members... But since OSCON I took lead role and now IRC is active, we have meetings and are getting organized better07:03
bkerensaapparently awhile back PNW Loco caused some sort of fallout when it got disbanded07:03
bkerensaI dont know the whole story I just know WA, OR, ID used to be one loco or something =o07:03
philipballewyou moved there or something?07:03
philipballewmikd, id see if the keybord controls work ctrl alt and your arrow keys07:04
bkerensaWell yeah about four years ago but I have been using ubuntu for over three years I just kinda helped out in #ubuntu and on forums and also I volunteered at FreeGeek which distributes Ubuntu computers for free07:04
bkerensaI really didnt know much about loco's until 5-6 months ago07:04
bkerensabut even then I guess the loco has been asleep due to some rifts and the old leadership parting ways and such07:05
philipballewi joined the loco last october when i came to a ubuntu hour. i stated getting in on irc stuff and then i help on here, and that stuff works.07:05
mikdcrtl alt and the arrow keys work07:06

bioterrorrestart puleseaudio11:21
bioterrorwas it in terminal: pulseaudio -k11:22

Kentrelyeah, I did something similar and it worked11:23
clarkthehardy910can someone help me get my webcam and mic to work in gmail again? I don't know what's wrong but the proper settings aren't being recognized and I don't know where to start.17:27
clarkthehardy910I think there might be something wrong with my Java and flash in firefox I have 3.0 and my Chrome is version 9.0.597.9817:28
clarkthehardy910im using dell mini that runs hardy heron17:28
clarkthehardy910I can record sound in sound recorder, and cheese also works, but its a little slower than it used to be (about two months ago it was much faster)17:29
clarkthehardy910skype also works fine17:29
clarkthehardy910but my mic and webcam are not being detected by gmail anymore...do I need to reinstall the pluggin or something?17:30
bioterrordoes both of them work with cheese?17:31
clarkthehardy910yes, they both work in Cheese17:32
clarkthehardy910just a little slower17:32
clarkthehardy910than they used to be17:33
clarkthehardy910and sometimes cheese fails to load17:33
clarkthehardy910it just suddenly disappears from the bottom panel while loading17:33
clarkthehardy910but usually by the second time it works again17:37
bioterrorI cant help with that18:01
bioterrorI've never owned a webcam18:01
clarkthehardy910ok, thanks for the answer though I do appreciate it18:02
clarkthehardy910how about fixing Java in firefox?18:02
clarkthehardy910is it easy?18:02
bioterroryou want to change opensource java to oracles closed?18:03
clarkthehardy910its not loading properly most of the time18:03
clarkthehardy910what does that involve and what are the risks?18:03
clarkthehardy910I've been using the download from sun systems18:03
clarkthehardy910i believe18:03
bioterrordont download from oracle/sun microsystem18:04
clarkthehardy910ok, whats the right thing to do?18:04
clarkthehardy910do I have to reinstall firefox or do some crazy trouble shooting that takes more than 20 minutes?18:04
clarkthehardy910because thats all ive got right now18:04
bioterrorenable partner repository, if you have not done it18:05
bioterrorsudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner"18:05
bioterrorupdate package database18:05
bioterrorsudo apt-get update18:05
bioterrorand then install18:05
bioterrorsudo apt-get install sun-java6-{jre,bin,plugin,fonts}18:05
bioterrorand remove the floss stuff:18:05
bioterrorsudo apt-get purge openjdk-6-{jre,jre-lib,jre-headless} icedtea{-6-jre-cacao,6-plugin}18:05
clarkthehardy910how do I check if ive got that repo added?18:05
bioterrorclarkthehardy910, from synaptic for example18:05
bioterrorwrong window :D18:09
pedro3005i know you love me so18:10
bioterrorI do18:10
clarkthehardy910bioterror: im getting a command not found for add-apt-repository:18:15
clarkthehardy910I think i've heard that this dell mini 9 had a version of ubuntu installed to it, that it can only get updates from certain sources18:17
clarkthehardy910but Im going to try to add it via software sources18:17
clarkthehardy910in the system section18:18
philipballewclarkthehardy910, just boot up with a live cd and copy all those sources to a text file then put them in the sources.list18:22
clarkthehardy910dont have a live usb available right now, I guess I'll do it when I have more time, thanks philip18:23
philipballewwell i can send you my sources file18:23
philipballewno problem18:24
clarkthehardy910hmmm, thanks for your help, but it would still need a live cd or usb, and this is way too late for me already, I will give it a try in the morning (its 2:26 am here)18:26
clarkthehardy910philipballew: bioterror: thanks so much!18:26
philipballewno problem :)18:27
bioterrorhope you share the same version18:27
philipballewbioterror, i was gonna check that :)18:28
bioterrorlsb_release -rcd18:28
clarkthehardy910why do you suppose the gui run rooted will not let me add the a new source?18:32
clarkthehardy910I can click the +add but after I paste in the APT line, the add button remains grayed out18:33
clarkthehardy910bioterror: do you know what Im referring to?18:34
clarkthehardy910I ran this command gksu --desktop /usr/share/applications/software-properties.desktop /usr/bin/software-properties-gtk which loaded it, but it still would not let me add the source18:35
clarkthehardy910it used to let me add them18:35
philipballewsudo apt-add-repository or however you spell it18:36
clarkthehardy910yeah, terminal doesnt recognize that command18:37
clarkthehardy910this is a dell funkified version18:38
philipballewjust re-install?18:38
philipballewyou have a good conection?18:39
clarkthehardy910hahaha, yeah, i.ve been putting it off for far too long18:40
clarkthehardy910Im not a computer wiz, just a geek that pretends to know what he's doing most of the time18:40
philipballewclarkthehardy910, its pretty easy. trust me18:41
philipballewyour laptop should install just fine as all the hardware is gonna work just fine18:41
