kevinhello i saw on the xubuntu web site that i could join that channel to get support is any one here that would be willing to help?06:01
BesogonThehe is quite silent for most of the time. What's your problem?06:03
kevinhi and thanks06:03
kevinmy problem is that within the last few days when starting up xubuntu on my netbook the desktop will flicker between a brown background and my set wallpaper06:04
kevinthe icons will also change styles and then the desktop will 50percent of the time look normal after a few flips back and forth but other times stay with the brown bakcground a ugly icons06:05
kevini was wondering if you could give me a place to start trouble shooting as i have no idea what is causing what to break06:06
BesogonOh... Never face with it. sorry. May be something is wrong with your home dir.. Try to create new user and look if OS behaves in similar way. If the problem still exists then I'd reinstall all.06:09
kevinthe user sugestion is a really good idea and if not i will prolly end up re installing b/c i remember a similar problem back in 10.10 but i got frustrated and went to ubuntu ...and then got frustrated at unity06:11
kevinbut i will deff try the user thing thanks06:11

joshh^is anyone alive here?19:31
Sysijoshh^: pop a question and see if somebody has an ansver19:33
joshh^I have XP installed on my system...how do I install Ubuntu...I need dual boot...please help19:35
knomejoshh^, i suggest you to ask #ubuntu. and please don't randomly send private messages to people. thanks.19:39
joshh^sorry knome!19:40

joshh^thanks knome19:42
knomeno problem, have fun19:43
genii-aroundjoshh^: Also please do not post the same question in multiple channels. It's annoying and rude. Just ask in the channel for distribution you want to dual-boot to, not all of them.19:44
FrozenFireIs there any way to increase the hit zone for window resizing? I'm finding that it's requiring too much precision to grab the edges of the window19:45
knomegenii-around, well i asked him to ask #ubuntu, if it doesn't go beyond that, it's okay :)19:45
knomeFrozenFire, in xubuntu 11.04, there is a resize grip on the lower right corner19:45
genii-aroundknome: Ah. This was the third channel I saw it ( #kubuntu and #ubuntu as well )19:46
SysiFrozenFire: use different window manager theme, see window manager settings19:46
FrozenFireknome, Yup, but even that is hard to grab19:46
SysiFrozenFire: also try holding alt and right mouse button19:46
FrozenFireSysi, That's awesome. Thanks for that.19:46
FrozenFireThat'll suffice, now that I'm aware of it19:46
FrozenFireIs there a way to enable support for window list reordering on the panel?19:53
mecklenI'm running 11.04 and have an Applications Menu item that has the wrong path.  How do I change it?21:04
mecklenI've looked for a .desktop file corresponding to the item and cannot find it.  I've google and found old documentation that appears to be no longer valid, it describes  ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/menu.xml which doesn't exist.21:11
Sysiit's some item in /usr/share/applications/ copy from there to ~/.local/share/applications/21:12
mecklenSysi: Thanks, found it.  It had the file name "alacarte-made.desktop" when the application is called TestTrack.  I guess that's a company name or something.  Thanks for the ponter!21:17
QJTHi there! I'v been a user of Ubuntu since 9.10 and been loving it. I dabbled with xfce but decided to stick with gnome up until the implementation of unity. I installed Xubuntu 11.04 and its exactly what I need, but there are a few minor bugs. The most annoying is the notification area displaying multiple "don't show this message again" buttons when connecting/disconnecting from a network. Is this bug: a) exclusive to Xubuntu 11.04?  b) b21:41
QJTeing looked at for future releases?  c) solvable by an intermediate user?21:41
knomeafaik, a & b21:42
QJTThank you very much! =]  Also, there is a bug when opening thunar for the first time on every start up. Thunar takes a long time to open and opens two windows. Same questions as last post.21:47
knomethunar shouldn't open two windows when launched21:50
knomeare they opened automatically when you login, or when you manually launch thunar?21:51
QJTwhen i launch thunar. it takes over 30 sec to open and then 10 sec later another window opens.21:53
knomeweird. have you tried to ask #xfce, they might know about that?21:55
QJTi'll ask #xfce, thanks for all your help =]21:58

mikodo?open root of thunar. I can gksu nautilus for it; not thunar.23:30
charlie-tcaThen you should install thunar, remove nautilus, then gksu thunar23:31
mikodobut I have both installed23:31
charlie-tcaMaybe nautilus is grabbing it, then. It gets pretty pushy23:32
mikodoYa, maybe23:32
charlie-tcaI do use gksu thunar, anytime I need to modify a file using root. It is the easiest way to navigate without using CLI23:32
mikodoseemingly I can't -> Permission denied or something, i forget23:33
charlie-tcawhat about gksudo thunar? same response?23:35
mikodoI do it again, and copy the response23:35
mikodoFailed to open directory "mikodo" -> Error stating '/home/mikodo/.gvfs': Permission denied23:38
mikodogksu nautilus work23:38
mikodowhat is .gvfs'23:39
charlie-tcaso, nautilus is overriding thunar23:40
mikodoIt seems23:40
mikodognome-virtual-file-system    Thanks23:41
charlie-tcaand, since gnome and nautilus takes over, they win every time23:41
charlie-tcasolution: use nautilus or remove nautilus23:41
mikodoI like nautilus for mounting devices and services, so want to keep both.23:42
mikodoI will continue to use gksu nautilus for root access to FS23:42
mikodoThx charlie-tca23:43
charlie-tcayou are welcome23:43
NOLOGjust a quick question23:55
NOLOGwhere the hell does the gtk recent manager store the uris?23:55
NOLOGit's because i can't clear the ristretto history23:56
charlie-tcaI would expect it to be in ~/.cache23:59
