crowin11iface eth1 inet static01:03
crowin11    address
crowin11    netmask
crowin11    post-up wifi-radar01:03
zHammeRzthat's a illegal ip address01:04
crowin11yeah so its spose to make the wifi radar look for a connection and bypass the auto etho01:04
zHammeRzyour router set up for dhcp?  if so just get it from that01:04
crowin11i set it up for auto dhcp, and i tried it maunal and nothing01:05
zHammeRzsounds like your card isn't supported.  If you don't know the model #, no way of knowing01:05
crowin11auto eth1 iface eth1 inet static address netmask post-up wifi-radar01:06
crowin11well i really dont know how to find that information as to the card01:07
crowin11oughta be supported its just a dell01:07

crowin11hang on i need to get a flashlight01:14
zHammeRzI had that on one laptop..instead of fighting with it for hours I went to walmart and bought a $18 usb belkin 54g wireless card and that's what i'm using now lol01:14
ElderDryasshould be a Wireless: Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG (802.11 a/b/g)01:14

crowin1im back hehe02:11
crowin1so i am looking to find where my ndiswrapper and driver folder are02:11
crowin1trying to set up wireless and doing well following some instructions and i get to an impasse02:14

LegendreIs there any fix for the 'thunar hang on launch' bug, that pops an error window containing Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.04:45

ubottuLaunchpad bug 845066 in apt (Ubuntu) "Launch helper exited with unknown return code 127" [Undecided,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/84506608:42

Unit193Fri, 09 Sep 2011 04:48:17 -040008:48
ChTiPowAit doesn't...08:48
ChTiPowAi use aptitude08:48
Unit193I'm taking a nap, hope you get it08:48
ChTiPowAdependance problem with so much packets, later it stops and i see this error and i'm doomed08:49
SysiChTiPowA: what did you try to do, what is "major upgrade" ?08:49
Sysiwhat did you do / how / where was the error message08:50
ChTiPowAWell firstable i have made the sudo aptitude safe-upgrade08:50
ChTiPowAwell i will understand that would mean destroy upgrade08:51
ChTiPowAafter that... it has destroyed my system08:51
ChTiPowAwith that error08:51
Myrttithat doesn't make much sense08:51
ChTiPowA1) I just made aptitude safe-upgrade08:51
ChTiPowA2) I couldn't reboot after it was done08:51
Myrttiwhat did you do before safe-upgrade?08:52
ChTiPowAyes i did aptitude update before08:52
Sysihow did you try to reboot?08:52
ChTiPowAby writing reboot08:52
Myrttiand before aptitude update?08:52
Myrttidid you edit sources.list?08:52
ChTiPowANothing i was peacefully in my desktop warning me for 130 updates needed to be applied08:52
Sysiwhat if you try to shutdown/reboot from menu?08:53
ChTiPowAI don't have menu anymore now08:53
ChTiPowAi'm stucked to terminal08:53
ChTiPowAnow i have like cannot open display 008:53
ChTiPowAthis is crazy08:53
Sysiwhen did that happen?08:54
ChTiPowAAfter the error08:54
ChTiPowAand i lost internet config too i had to set manually to recover it08:54
ChTiPowAthe file was just empty08:54
ChTiPowASo now the only thing is working is internet and the primary console08:55
ChTiPowAI lost my Xorg config too i checked the file its empty too08:56
ChTiPowATried to fix Xorg by reinstalling it but stucking with that same fatal error08:56
Myrttiwell xorg is usually automatically generated at boot08:56
Myrttiso missing the config is normal08:57
ChTiPowAWhat can i do now :(08:57
Myrttiwell first off you could try "sudo apt-get -f install"08:57
ChTiPowASame error08:58
ChTiPowAExecution has been stopped because too much errors08:58
ChTiPowAThen "Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 127"08:58
Sysixorg.conf is empty by default, network setup is done by networkmanager08:59
ChTiPowAwell my network is working i know it because i can ping google09:00
ChTiPowAi have a static IP09:00
SysiI'm thinking of recommending force shutdown but booting could fail..09:01
ChTiPowABooting is working and end in Terminal mode09:01
Sysiwhat if you run 'sudo service dbus start'09:02
ChTiPowAJob is already running09:02
Sysireplace start with restart09:03
ChTiPowAdbus start/running09:03
Sysisudo service gdm start09:06
ChTiPowAi don't have gdm, i'm using xfce409:07
Sysihow do you start it?09:08
ChTiPowABut when i start it, it says a lots of error i cannot see because its flooding my screen and i see in the end "cannot open display 0"09:08
ChTiPowAi must type startxfce409:08
Sysi(xubuntu has gdm by default)09:08
ChTiPowAi use a small machine so i took xfce409:09
Sysiput "exec ck-launch-session startxfce4" without quotes  to ~/.xinitrc09:09
SysiI'm not sure if that ck-launch is needed but it shouldn't break anything09:09
Sysithen run 'startx'09:10
ChTiPowAAre you sure ? Because i can start usually xfce4 manually09:13
ChTiPowAwhen it works09:13
ChTiPowAbut now it ends up by "cannot open display 0"09:13
SysiI don't have much of ideas, that can fail too but at least you have something to try09:14
ChTiPowAIt fails also with reconfiguring with this :09:15
ChTiPowAupdate-mime-database.real: symbol lookup error: update-mime-database.real: undefined symbol: g_malloc0_n09:15
ChTiPowAThis is crazy09:15
Sysiwhat reconfiguring?09:16
ChTiPowAsudo dpkg-reconfigure -a09:17
ChTiPowAthen it ends up with this line09:17
ChTiPowAupdate-mime-database.real: symbol lookup error: update-mime-database.real: undefined symbol: g_malloc0_n09:17
Sysihow about dpkg --configure -a09:18
ChTiPowAThere is a huge flood on the screen ending with "too much errors"09:20
Sysiyou propably need to just reinstall09:20
ChTiPowAHow ?09:21
ChTiPowADownloading live cd ?09:21
ChTiPowATell me09:21
ChTiPowADoes live CD can fix system ?09:21
Sysilivecd or alternate install disk, wipe your old installation09:22
Sysiyou propably want to back up data before that09:23
ChTiPowAyes i indeed09:23
ChTiPowAi need to recover my files in sFTP09:23
ChTiPowAbut do you know any solution to do that in console ?09:23
Sysiscp -r /this/folder/ you@host:/copy/here09:24
ChTiPowAthx for your effort Sysi10:21
Sysinp, too bad it broke10:23
ChTiPowASysi do you know any software like midnight commander which have an explorer in console but for sFTP ?10:26
Sysiyou could mount it with ssshfs and then use MCC though10:26
ChTiPowAthat case i could continue to use it in console only because my network is working, my samba too so i see my files but that computer is downloading via SSH10:27
ChTiPowAssshfs ?10:27
Sysi!info sshfs10:27
Sysiubottu down..10:28
ChTiPowAok searching in doc.ubuntu10:28
ChTiPowAAwesome i need to try that10:29
ChTiPowAYou can laugh but i was using my graphic desktop to use filezilla because i didn't know otherway10:29
Sysinothing wrong with filezilla, though gigolo/thunar would work10:30
ChTiPowAbut i don't have graphic anymore10:30
ChTiPowAi have only terminal10:30
ChTiPowABut now its too late10:30
ChTiPowAbecause of the bugs i cannot install anything10:31
ChTiPowAok my mistake the packet sshfs installed =)10:31
dagrovesdoes anyone know how I can make the Gnome 3 them called Aidwata run on Xubuntu 10.10?12:44
Sysidagroves: you can't, adwaita is made with gtk3 and xfce uses gtk212:50
Sysiif you want gtk3 apps to use adwaita, copy gtk-3.0 folder from adwaita to your theme's folder12:51
dagrovesBut I read somewhere about porting some GTK3 themes to XFCE on GTK2, I found a theme for GTK2 that is for Xubuntu but it did not work, it just changed the color of my xfce panel12:51
Sysiyou're maybe missing some theme-engine12:53
Sysisearch in software center / synaptic for gtk2-engine12:53
Sysidunno about porting, 10.10 support should be on #ubuntu+1 anyway12:54
dagrovesokay ill search synaptic12:54
Sysioh, I messed up with number12:56
Sysidagroves: what theme did you try? wrong version of theme engine can cause problems too12:57
dagrovesI am not sure, I just downloaded it from the ubuntuforums, hold on ill get the link12:57
dagrovesthat is where I got it from12:58
Sysi"it uses pixmap, murrine and clearlooks for rendering"12:59
Sysiyou need those gtk-engines13:00
dagrovesmy windows boreders do not change, they stay that ugly blue color13:00
Sysisee window manager settings13:00
dagrovesI have murrine and clearlooks, ill check to see if I have pixmap13:00
Sysichange to other theme and back to that when installing engines, you may need to relogin too13:01
dagrovesyeah the window border theme for the one I downloaded is not there...13:02
Sysitheme propably doesn't provide xfwm4 theme13:03
dagrovesohwell.. lol so... would it be possible to install Gnome 3 without Gnome-shell on Xubuntu?13:04
dagroveswithout breaking it?13:04
Sysiyou can use gnome3 fallback or possibly gnome3 window manager with xfce13:05
Sysixfce doesn't care if you have gnome installed13:06
dagrovesi was going to use Gnome3 fallback, I like they way it looks, I just don't want the shell13:06
dagroveshow would I go about doing that, I just want the environment, not all the programs, I tried installing it once and it installed Gnome 3 and all of its programs13:09
sps_folks, need some help with file/directory sharing...14:11
sps_I have xubuntu installed in vbox and samba, can't enable file sharing, any help?14:12
mecklen`I'm about to install xubuntu 11.04 on a dual monitor nvidia desktop.  Will 11.04 support dual monitors in this release?17:10
Sysiof course17:11

Sysiyou may want to install propietrary nvidia driver but propably possible with default one too17:12
mecklen`Sysi: Excellent!  Thanks again.17:19

whatever01I have a question installing xubuntu 11.04 (graphical installation) using one SSD as / (root) and two HDDs for /home...any chance I can make a RAID 1 at the beginning?18:19
Sysiyou can create raid with alternate install disk18:21
Sysibut it would be simpler to just mount other partition as folder in /home18:21
whatever01Sysi: hi there, thanks...I just thought I need to take the alternate one to make a RAID 1 at the very beginning of the installation during partioning18:23
whatever01Sysi: I will try the alternate and come back if needed...thanks18:24
Aicasnif i install grub with   grub-install /dev/sda    how do I back up the bootloader with the partition table?   is   dd if=/dev/sda of=mbr.bin bs=512 count=1   enough?18:30
OrkDo you guys know any menu customisation tool ?19:22
OrkI'm planning to deploy Xubuntu on 50+ machines of my school19:22
OrkFound it19:23
charlie-tcaYou can use alacarte by installing with 'sudo apt-get install alacarte --no-install-recommends' in a terminal19:24
charlie-tcafor 11.04 and later19:24
charlie-tcaXfce 4.6, used in 10.04 and 10.10 had no easy editor capability19:24
OrkWhat do you think of lightdm ?19:26
OrkShould I use it ?19:26
OrkOh, Xubuntu Oneiric will use it19:28
charlie-tcaWe use it by default in oneirick19:28
charlie-tcabut, depending on what you need, it may not work as good in 11.0419:28
charlie-tcaIt wasn't ready for production use yet, when we started the oneiric cycle19:28
OrkWhat are the major problems ?19:29
charlie-tcawhen I tried it in 11.04, it would not work19:29
charlie-tcaI haven't tried it for 4 months now, though19:30
charlie-tcaIt worked in a clean install, but not on my production system19:30
OrkYeah, I'm firing up a VM19:30
OrkOur actual production systems are mort than outdated, we need clean install19:30
OrkSo it's cool19:30
OrkI never deployed desktop system, how to customize default Xubuntu session?19:31
OrkSomething like /etc/skel/ ?19:31
charlie-tcaeither build your images, or add to /etc/skel and copy it19:32
TiktalikHow do I find a list of running programs?19:32
OrkWe currently use Gnome 2, could there be conflicts while moving to xfce?19:32
OrkTiktalik, ps in terminal?19:32
OrkTiktalik, or the xfce task manager19:33
charlie-tcaAlso, let me give you a pastebin to easily set up all machines to match, if you don't burn an image19:33
TiktalikOrk, how do I find the task manager? :V19:33
OrkI build an image an i deploy it, charlie-tca19:33
OrkTiktalik, Apps > System > Task Manager?19:34
charlie-tcaokay, that makes it easier to get it to match,t hen.19:34
charlie-tcaIf you build an image, you probably don't need /etc/skel, since you can build everything into the image, anyway19:35
OrkOne last question, can xfce use the ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file?19:35
charlie-tcaalthough, /etc/skel works really well when having students add users19:36
OrkBecause we needed to put a line into it to make Gnome2 use lpr as the printer backend19:36
OrkWe use an active directory19:36
charlie-tcaI believe it can, but have not used one since onceirc19:36
Orkand homes are nfs-mounted19:36
charlie-tcaI used the ~/.gtkrc-2.0 to customize things back before I could get Xfce to do it using the settings manager19:37
charlie-tca!hi | ChTiPowA19:37
ubottuChTiPowA: Hi!, Welcome to #xubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines. Enjoy your stay!19:37
ChTiPowAI have installed Xubuntu 11.04 but in the end, Grub refuse to install19:37
charlie-tcaYou can install it manually, then, using the information at19:37

OrkThanks for your time charlie-tca, I'll post photos of rooms full of fresh Xubuntu pcs :)19:38
charlie-tcaChTiPowA: ues, that should work19:39
charlie-tcaOrk: good luck with the project.19:39
