zacariasDo you know how can we activate the 3rd level on Xubuntu 11.04? 3d level is the ability to enable the "at", the "euro" and other signs which you can do with the keys, not with shift but with one of the other (win/apple or alt) keys00:42
kg_hi I have just tried to boot xubuntu 11.10 on an emachines E443 (AMD E350 APU) system hangs with no messages any suggestions?02:09
cjsSo, the xubunu session menu on the panel doesn't give me the option to switch to a different user or the guest user, as the Gnome session menu does. Is there any way to add this, or is this simply not a feature in Xfce?03:09
cjsAh, seems that the xfswitch-plugin is what's needed?03:16
cjsHm. It gives me: "Unable to switch to new display." "The naem org.gnome.DisplayManager was not provided by any .service files."03:17
cjsBecause I'm using lightdm instead of gdm?03:22
cjsYup, that was it.03:27
=== jansen is now known as sumpygump
cjsHm. Maybe I can handle this just by starting a second DM on the "f7" virtual console?03:34

rootboxis it possible to use a extended monitor in xubuntu 10.11?07:08
rootboxsorry i lost connecton07:20
Sysiuse arandr or nvidia tool or ati tool07:20
cjsAh, looks like some people are back. If I wanted to run a display manager on two of the Ctrl-Alt-F7 etc. virtual consoles, logging in with Xfce on one and as a different user with Gnome on the other, does anybody know how I might do that?07:29
Sysilog in to virtual console (tty), run right kind of export and run gnome-session or startxfce407:31
Sysiexport DISPLAY=:0.1 or something, google should know07:32
SysiDM:s shouldn't work07:33
cjsHm. So, basically a startx solution.07:52
cjsDMs can work, though I've lost the page on doing it in older versions of ubuntu.07:53
cjs I can't seem to get that working, somehow.08:11
well_laid_lawnset up a .xinitrc and login to tty2 and do   startx -- :108:17
drvladimirIn my window list applet, I'd like to set it so that...  Say I only have one window open. I don't want it to just expand and cover the entire space of the applet.  How can I set a size limit for individual window tabs without shrinking the whole applet?08:40
cjswell_laid_lawn: Doesn't work.08:58
cjsComplains that an X server is already running.08:58
well_laid_lawncjs: then try startx -- :208:59

wakslobany idea if alc889a can conflict with nvidia accelerated graphics drivers?09:59
cjsHm. So, do I want xfdesktop? If I don't use the icons or anything like that, what does it do for me?10:17
cjs(It does seem to prevent fvwm from getting the mouse button clicks on the background that would bring up menus.)10:17
well_laid_lawnmaybe just kill it and see10:18
cjsWell, that's a bit difficult, since it's set to auto-restart. I can't seem to find the config file for my sessions, either. (I have a standard one and an fvwm one, with a chooser that comes up when I log in.)10:22
well_laid_lawntry   pkill xfdesktop &   in a terminal and save the session10:25
cjsOh, man, Xfce lets me have different accel. settings for different mice! I'm in love.10:25
cjswell_laid_lawn: How does putting pkill in the background help?10:26
well_laid_lawnheh that was just a habit10:26
cjsOk, in that case, I've already tried that.10:27
cjsLooking at it in the Session tab of the Session and Startup configuration, it says that the "Restart Style" is immediately. If I pkill xfdesktop, the background that lightdm was using appears for a moment, and then xfdesktop restarts.10:28
cjsI think I need to find the config file that's got this in it; there seems no way to remove xfdesktop from that list. (It's not in the "Application Autostart" tab.10:29
cjsOh, wait!10:30
cjsYou think that big red button that says, "Quit Program" could be it? :-)10:30
cjsWow, I seem to have all the basics working.10:33
cjsI am free of Gnome at last! Break out the champagne!10:34
cjsGotta go. Thanks again!11:07

ballHmm... the new version of Xubuntu doesn't boot on this machine.  I may have to try something older.13:24
gNewPowerHi.  After upgrading from 11.04 to 11.10 my screen resolution is not properly configured.  My max resolution should be 1900x1200 whereas now X is set at 1920X1200.  Do I care?  Can I change it?  thanks13:30
ballOnly you can tell if you care, but you probably want it set to whatever the native mode is for your screen.13:31
ball(if it's an LCD)13:32
gNewPowerit is an LCD13:32
gNewPowerwhat file to I edit?13:32
gNewPowerI don't see a Xorg.conf13:32
* ball has no idea13:32
ballI don't have a lot of luck with X.org13:33
ball...and sadly they took away xf86config / xorgconfig so now we're screwed if autodetect doesn't.13:33
gNewPowercan I fry my screen by letting it at 1920 i.e. 20 pixels too high?13:33
ablomengNewPower, are you sure though... do you have a special monitor?13:34
ablomenbecause it should always be 1920x120013:34
gNewPowerablomen, lemme double check that13:35
gNewPowerablomen, yes, I have a dell 2405fpw Max Resolution: 1920x1200 (WUXGA)13:36

gNewPowermy doc was wrong13:37
gNewPowerthanks for reassuring me ;-)13:38
ablomenhehe np13:38
gNewPowermy user's manual did have it wrong though.13:38
gNewPoweryou are right and I guess I am all fine13:38
gNewPowerone more thing: folks on this channel really rock!  you guys helped me out already many times.  so - THANK YOU!!13:39
ballLet's try 10.10...13:47
gNewPoweryou mean 11.1013:50
ballI mean 10.10.  11.10 doesn't work for me.13:50
gNewPoweryou are going to downgrade?13:50
* ball nods13:50
ballThat's my plan.13:51
gNewPowerXubuntu 11.10 is that bad for you?13:51

ballgNewPower: It's probably wonderful if you can get it to boot.13:52
* ball shrugs13:52
Sysi11.10 won't be supported very long13:55
ubottuUbuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) is the current release of Ubuntu | Download http://releases.ubuntu.com/11.10/ - Release Info: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/111013:55
Sysi10.2011 + 18 months13:55
gNewPowerball, I am really sorry to hear that.13:56
ballgNewPower: These things happen.  It doesn't dent my opinion of Xubuntu significantly.13:57
ballIt's probably my favourite Linux distribution.13:57
gNewPowermy last two upgrades 10.10->11.04 and then 11.04->11.10 were a massive pain in the ass each time.  I hate Unity so much I moved to Xubuntu (which I really like, btw) but I have to say that it is MORE buggy then Debian-testing.  If this nonsense continues I will move my family to Mint...13:57
gNewPoweryesterday, it took me 7 hours to fix all the problems of my last upgrade13:58
ballI'm not familiar with Mint (though I've heard the name). What desktop does it use?14:00
reoneven debian had some issues not so long ago after an update. I ran Chrunchbang before 11.10 and reccon it is great. Squeeze however has older packages, installing stuff from testing/wheezy I had spome dependency issues even with apt-pinning. I changed back to ubuntu dues to all the support/guides & PPAs. I still think crunchbang is great though!14:01
gNewPowerGNOME 3.214:01
serfushow would I hide the hidden files on my desktop?14:01
gNewPowerCrunchbang rocks, but its not really Debian.  I ran !# for a while, but Debian-testing comes with a system of support (community and applications) which is far superior14:02
serfusreon, dosen't work14:02
gNewPowerstuff like apt-listbug which only Debian has14:02
serfuson the desktop, not with a file manger14:02
gNewPowerserfus, you want to hide hidden files?14:02
serfusgNewPower, yes14:03
reonserfus, I have desktop icons disabled, just assume ctrl-h migt work14:03
serfusreon, it dosen't :(14:03
gNewPowerwhat hidden files do you see on your desktop?14:03
gNewPoweryour desktop should be pretty much empty14:03
serfusnot sure name and description can help here14:03
gNewPowerserfus, are you on Xubuntu?14:03
gNewPowerok open a terminal14:04
gNewPowercd Desktop14:04
gNewPowerthen type ls14:04
serfusokay, i got a list14:04
gNewPowerand show us some of these files (not all, just a few) here14:04
serfus(i know this command)14:04
serfusAstral Projection - People Can Fly .mp314:05
serfushow would this help?14:05
gNewPowerthese files have no business being here14:05
gNewPoweryou need to move them elewhere14:05
serfusi want them there14:05
gNewPoweryou probably downloaded on the desktop14:05
serfusi use the desktop14:05
serfusit's deliberately14:05
serfusi just don't want to see the hidden files14:05
serfusothers should stay14:06
gNewPowerok, but that is not a good practice. music belongs in a music file.  if you want to hide them, just add a period at the beginning of their names like '.Astral  Projection - People Can Fly .mp3'14:06
gNewPowerbut you are going to get desktop clutter very fast14:06
Sysiserfus: hidden as in starting with " . "?14:06
serfusSysi, no, but they have a ~, and look different14:07
gNewPowerwith Xubuntu you should at most have your home directory, filesystem, trash and removable devices on your desktop14:07
Sysiserfus: that doesn't mean hidden file14:08
Sysicould you take screenshot?14:08
serfuswith the file manger i can see them only after ctrl-h14:08
gNewPowerserfus,good idea14:08
Sysihum, weird14:08
gNewPowermake a screenshot14:08
* serfus has to leave, will be back with a screenshot later14:10
ballHmm... 10.10 doesn't boot either.  I just get "Error setting up gfxboot"14:15
ballPerhaps I should try an alternate install disk14:15

TheSheepit shouldn't do that :/17:19
tobychTheSheep, ah. maybe i'l try to find the settings. like, proper settings. very few seem available in the UI17:20
TheSheeptobych: I don't think there are any that would cause this, but I don't know for sure17:21
tobychi see17:21
TheSheeptobych: one thing that comes to mind is that if the application requests a window size much larger than the screen size -- then maybe it would get maximized17:21
TheSheeptobych: not sure though17:22
tobychah, that might be it. i'm on a netbook.17:22

metaphiljust grabbed xubuntu 11.10 and a fresh compiz install. I disabled xfwm4's compositing but I'd like to use the default sleek xfce window decorations17:35
metaphilwhen i tell ccsm to use "xfwm4 --replace" as window decorator, it uses the decorations, but none of the effects work. fusion-icon tells me that compiz is running as window manager17:36
metaphilany ideas?17:36
Sysigreybird should contain metacity theme gtk-window-decorator can use17:36

knomei hope you'll have better experiences with xubuntu, even if it's not starting so well :)22:10
antnashyeah, I know I will22:15
antnashThis is all for my server. Just wanna get it all set up properly22:19
knomethere's ubuntu server too22:19
antnashI suppose I could just delete everything but my storage LVM partition and install the rest on standard logical partitions22:20
antnashIt's only a home fileserver22:20
antnashAnd I like the xfce desktop22:21
antnashAnd I just wanted everything as easy as poss22:21
antnashwell that's long gone!!22:21
knomesometimes that happens22:21
antnashwouldn't go for win server tho22:22
knomehah, that's a completely different world22:22
knomebtw, we have #xubuntu-offtopic for offtopic (non-support) chat, feel free to join22:22
antnashAlthough it's been a nightmare trying to set up NFS properly between my windows laptop and linux server22:23
antnashWell I could use help with the NFS22:23
knomeif i only can help...22:23
antnashBeen getting access denied when trying to transfer to the nfs shares22:23
knome(probably not though ;()22:24
antnashfull access given, no firewall22:24
knomehaven't been running windows systems in years22:24
ubottunfs is the network file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo for information on installing and configuring NFS.22:24
knomehave you read that?22:24
deithrianI'm trying to turn NumLock key on on boot but i can't find the /etc/gdm/ folder in 11.1022:25
deithriancan someone help?22:25
knomedeithrian, 11.10 uses lightdm instead of gdm22:25
deithrianknome, so the tutorial on the website is useless?22:26
knomedeithrian, which website?22:26
deithrianalso this post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=169484522:26
knomedeithrian, have you tried the startx method?22:27
deithrianknome, where can i read about it?22:27
knomedeithrian, it's on the NumLock page, more to bottom22:27
deithrianknome, should i also uninstall the numlockx package?22:27
knomedeithrian, you need that for the startx method too22:28
deithrianwill give it a try thanks knome22:28
knomenp, hopefully that works22:28
deithriani hope so :) oh and btw Xubuntu 11.10 is awesome22:30
antnashI'm hoping setting up apache and php is gonna be easier than on fed22:32
ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)22:33
knomeantnash, for a pure server, i think debian might just be a little better than *ubuntu*22:33
knomeantnash, but if it's a home file server, and you want gui, then i suppose xubuntu is a good choice too22:34
deithrianwell unfortunately that didn't help22:35
=== deithrian is now known as Guest38805
antnashI do indeed want a gui22:35
antnashWant to be able to vnc in22:35
antnashif necessary22:36
knomeGuest38805, hhmh. you could try asking #ubuntu too, since this doesn't seem like a xubuntu-specific problem22:36
knomeantnash, yup, i can see that :)22:36
Guest38805ok knome thanks22:37
=== Guest38805 is now known as Deithrian
antnashhow long should it take to install the alternate from a usb?22:39
antnashwell, it SHOULD be installing from a 1 GB partition on a hard disk, but it was saying that it couldn't mount the CDROM22:39
knomeantnash, afaik, if you use the usb disk creator, you can't install alternate there, you need a desktop iso. but installing should take about the same22:40
knomei'm going offline for today22:41
knomegood luck everybody with your issues22:41
antnashcheers for your help man22:41
knomesee you later22:41
Deithriangnite and thanks :)22:41
hellothereI want to have all my windows maximized and all window decorations removed. I tried maximus, but it removes the window decorations only if i unmaximize a window and maximize it again. ideas?23:18
lorin`maybe edit a theme to remove window decorations from it? prelude-4 is close-ish23:35
lukinforehellothere, probably better ask on #xfce. with fluxbox it's easy, not sure about xfwm23:49
hellotherek, thanks23:53
gusnanhellothere, that can be done with devilspie23:54
hellotherethat looks promising, thank you23:55
gusnanhellothere, You could also try my project devilspie2 - Pretty much the same as devilspie, but LUA-based.23:59
