ChristopherNGAnyone tried using Irssi in windows command line?00:34
GridCubeChristopherNG, yep, all the time, weeeell i do use xchat more usually, but yeah irssi on a cygwin is pretty cool, you look all hacker and all00:38
Unit193ChristopherNG: But I don't understand why since there is something called PuTTY ;)00:39
ChristopherNGHeh so its all about the image eh?00:39
ChristopherNGUnit193: There is this even better thing called SSL from the terminal00:39
ChristopherNGThe sad thing was I was using SSL for a long time and didnt know what I was doing was actually SSL because of all these programs like putty..00:40
Unit193Not exactly sure what you mean by that, but you can always use a telnet client00:40
ChristopherNGUnit193: I mean opening a terminal and typing "ssl yourusername@yourserver.com"00:40
ChristopherNGand then your password00:40
Unit193Uhh... You mean SSH?00:41
ChristopherNGyouve confused me now..00:41
ChristopherNGAnyway, sad so my people use windows like a life support machine, I had enough after two weeks and thats just using it for gaming.00:42

ubottuPlease don't ask the same question in multiple Ubuntu channels at the same time. Many helpers are in more than one channel and it's not fair to them or the other people seeking support.03:39

ZoLToR Hi! Can someone help me? Is it possible to remove chromium and firefox from xubuntu? (Usin Google Chrome). When I deletin Chromium, xubuntu download and installing firefox. When I deleting firefox - chromium was downloaded and installed21:26
Sysiapt-get remove chromium-browser firefox21:27
charlie-tcaWill it work if they are using Chrome ?21:28
Sysiit may want to install something else..21:28
SysiIDK what depends on some browser, xubuntu-desktop?21:28
charlie-tcaLooks like it insists on either firefox or chromium?21:28
ZoLToRAt that moment I have only chromium withot firefox. And when I run command "apt-get remove chromium-browser" - downloading of firefox package was begining21:29
charlie-tcaWhat is Chrome? Isn't that google's OS?21:29
SysiZoLToR: that's why you also tell it to remove firefox21:30
SysiChromeOs is Chrome OS, Chrome browser is Chrome browser21:31
ZoLToRomg.. just run "apt-get remove chromium-browser firefox". Unknown browser "Epiphany" aws downloaded and installed x_x21:35
charlie-tcaThat is not xubuntu, then. Does Chrome OS insist on having a browser installed?21:35
ZoLToRapt-get can not leave xubuntu without browser??? o_O But I have Google Chrome! Why apt-get didn't see it? :(21:37
charlie-tcaApparently, Google Chrome will not allow you to not have a browser!21:38
charlie-tcaXubuntu doesn't care if you don't want a browser21:38
Sysichrome is not from default repositories21:38
ZoLToRI'm using Xubuntu.. Not ChromeOS21:39
Sysicharlie-tca: that happens on regular ubuntu too21:39
Sysistill wondering what depends on some webbrowser21:39
charlie-tcaYou are right. xubuntu-desktop requires it21:40
charlie-tcaas do the rest of the -desktop packages21:40
charlie-tcaas does xsane, bluefish, and a bunch of other stuff21:41
charlie-tcabut xubuntu-desktop can be removed, it is just a meta-package needed when you upgrade to the next release21:41
ZoLToRAnd how I will be update without that package if it need for upgrade?21:44
ZoLToR11.10 not far)21:44
charlie-tcaYou must add the -desktop package back to upgrade, which will also require the browser be added back21:51
ZoLToRHmmm... Thanks for your advice, I will try it later... Now I want sleep) Good night everyone!21:54
