PehnepHey everyone, I was wondering if anybody knew how to solve this prolbme I was facing; when I try to boot up my Xubuntu machine it gets stuck at "checking battery state... [ok]" and doesn't come up with the GUI. How could I fix this?00:36
PehnepCan't seem to find a working solution elsewhere.00:36
JennyBlueBirdOk, probably asked a bazillion times, but. Menu editor? Trying to install alacarte wants to pull in half of gnome ...00:37
PehnepJennyBlueBird: Do you know what to do when getting stuck after "checking battery state... [ok]" during booting? GUI won't start.00:39
JennyBlueBirdPehnep, absolutely no clue00:39
PehnepAlright, well, I was asking since there don't seem to be a lot of others active currently.00:40
well_laid_lawnJennyBlueBird: see if this helps - http://wiki.xfce.org/howto/customize-menu?s[]=edit&s[]=menu00:40
JennyBlueBirdwell_laid_lawn, that's what I'm trying to avoid : /00:41
JennyBlueBirdlxmenu seems bugy00:41
JennyBlueBirdas in, it misslabels the entries and wants to change them00:42
well_laid_lawnnothing about lxmenu there00:42
knomeJennyBlueBird, if you want to avoid manual menu editing, i think alacarte is your best bet00:42
JennyBlueBirdwell_laid_lawn, actually there, is , second sentence :P00:43
JennyBlueBirdknome, so just install it with no-recomends or something ?00:43
knomeJennyBlueBird, that should work00:43
well_laid_lawnit says lxmenu is also available - read three sentences00:43
zacariashow do you encrypt files or folders in Xubuntu (Iha a suggestion on the Ubuntu forum, but it was for Gnome)00:44
PehnepWell_laid_lawn: no astroturfing?00:44
knomezacarias, if you want to encrypt single files or folders, i'd say look for encfs00:44
well_laid_lawnonly natural here !00:44
PehnepSorry, I'm bored, since my other PC won't boot :P00:45
knomePehnep, http://techspear.com/2011/08/booting-ubuntu-oneiric-stops-at-checking-battery-state-ok/ ?00:45
zacariasknome: what's encfs? A software?00:45
JennyBlueBirdknome, yea, installing it with --no-install-recomends did the trick00:45
knomezacarias, yes00:45
knome!info encfs00:45
ubottuencfs (source: encfs): encrypted virtual filesystem. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.7.4-2.2ubuntu1 (oneiric), package size 368 kB, installed size 1812 kB (Only available for linux-any)00:45
knomeubottu, HELLO?00:45
ubottuknome: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)00:46
PehnepLet me try that straight away, knome!00:46
knomeJennyBlueBird, okay, good :)00:46
zacariasknome: Tx, I'll try it00:46
JennyBlueBirdit SHOULD probably be enabled by default, but I assume there is some very good reason not to ?00:47
JennyBlueBirdhmm, gonna restart X to see that it didn't trash everything00:47
JennyBlueBirdweee , it worked00:48
knomeJennyBlueBird, alacarte or --no-install-recommends?00:48
JennyBlueBirdwell both :)00:48
knomeJennyBlueBird, (re: not enabled by default)00:49
JennyBlueBirdor well, both really00:49
JennyBlueBirdif it is not installed by default it probably should not pull in all those gnome packages since that will trash your xubuntu DE , and many will try it to get a menu editor00:49
knomewell, the thing is that --no-install-recommends is not enabled by default because some apps might not work properly, and with that on, if we pulled in alacarte, it would take horribly lot of space00:49
knomewe try to make the menu as useful as possible, so you wouldn't need to edit it at all00:50
knomeof course you are free to, and then you can just install alacarte00:50
JennyBlueBirdwell I meant when you install xubuntu00:50
knomeJennyBlueBird, yes, me too. :)00:51
JennyBlueBirdis it not possible to have it just install alacarte without the recomendations during the first install of the system ?00:51
knomeJennyBlueBird, as i explained, it's not so simple00:51
knomeJennyBlueBird, since --no-install-recommends is not enabled by default, why would we want to do contrary to that with a package in the installation?00:52
JennyBlueBirdbecause otherwise you're left with the choice of either breaking the DE or leaving the user without a menu editor ?00:53
knomeinstalling alacarte does not break the DE, even if you installed with all the recommends00:53
JennyBlueBirdand as usual when you try to figure out how to do it you get 10 forum posts suggesting different things 5 out of which don't work and 4 that actually break your system00:53
knomewe are setting up a top 10 faq on our new website once it's published and this is one of the questions.00:54
PehnepMany thanks, knome, now I can access my PC properly again!00:54
knomethere are always sources that make you do things that possibly break your system, if you just type all the commands without thinking/knowing what they do00:55
knomePehnep, np, enjoy xubuntu00:55
Pehnepknome: Thanks, I will ;D00:55
JennyBlueBirdwell, still, you get what I'm saying. If you're not a xubuntu developer and just want a working menu editor you will probably end up spending a lot of time trying to get it to work00:56
knomeJennyBlueBird, possible. and yeah, i understand. the situation IS suboptimal until xfce has its own menu editor, and there's no ETA for that.00:57
knomeJennyBlueBird, but at least people usually get to install the menu editor.00:58
JennyBlueBirdknome, perhaps one could create an additional package alacarte-xfce which pulls in only what is needed to make it work with xfce ?00:58
knomeJennyBlueBird, more likely the recommends should just be purged to minimun in the current package00:59
JennyBlueBirdknome, the repository is separate from the ubuntu one ?01:00
JennyBlueBirdwell, then wouldn't that cause issues for the ubuntu users ?01:00
knomeshouldn't. but that should be investigated. sharing the same repositories bring us other problems than this only too, but it also brings some advantages01:01
knomelooks like it recommends gnome-panel, which is pulling the rest of the packages in. that is kind of viable recommend, but shouldn't be necessary01:02
JennyBlueBirdalacarte doesn't enable me to add items it seems01:02
knomeJennyBlueBird, you are running 11.10, right?01:03
knomehmmh, that worked for me.01:04
JennyBlueBirdI click "new item" and nothing happens01:04
JennyBlueBirdalso, I can move items up but not down01:05
JennyBlueBirdand the properties dialogue doesn't seem to work either01:05
knomeJennyBlueBird, i wonder if it's because you didn't install the recommends..01:05
JennyBlueBirdit did pull in 2 requiremenets01:05
JennyBlueBirdand something like that01:05
knomeyes, but you didn't install the recommends.01:05
JennyBlueBirdgonna run it in a terminal to see if it moans01:05
JennyBlueBirdwell the recomends wanted to pull in all of compiz ...01:06
JennyBlueBird"OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory"01:06
JennyBlueBirdyea it definitely lacks something01:06
knomei don't think it will pull anything of compiz. but you can of course pastebin the output from apt-get for the list of packages it says it would install01:07
JennyBlueBirdhow do I tell it to include recomends when I do -s ?01:08
JennyBlueBirdit says 0 new installed, presumably because it really is installed01:08
knomeyou could just remove and reinstall01:08
knomeor install gnome-panel :P01:08
knomethough that would be set to manually installed then01:09
JennyBlueBirdknome, well the following is just the start :01:12
JennyBlueBirdThe following extra packages will be installed:01:12
JennyBlueBird  apg appmenu-gtk appmenu-gtk3 appmenu-qt bamfdaemon banshee01:12
JennyBlueBird  banshee-extension-soundmenu binfmt-support brasero brasero-cdrkit01:12
JennyBlueBird  brasero-common cli-common compiz compiz-core compiz-gnome01:12
JennyBlueBirdIt goes on to list all kinds of gnoem apps01:12
JennyBlueBirdit seems to want to pull in unity as well01:12
knomelooks like you are true. then installing alacarte definitely seems to be awkward01:13
knomeUnit193, but that doesn't work01:14
knomeUnit193, alacarte doesn't open all the dialogs01:14
Unit193knome: Weird, I tried that and it worked well still :/01:14
JennyBlueBirdknome, it seems that it is the recomends of gnome panel that pulls in the crap01:15
Unit193I'll have to try it in a VM again01:15
JennyBlueBirdso maybe --no-install recomends alacarte gnome-panel will work01:15
knomeJennyBlueBird, maybe01:15
JennyBlueBirdseems better01:16
JennyBlueBirdit still pulls in evolution data server and things01:16
knomemmh :|01:16
JennyBlueBirdgonna have to check if it works01:16
JennyBlueBirdbut it is only like 25 meg alltogether now01:17
JennyBlueBirdcan live with that01:17
knomei've forwarded this... trying to fix it for 12.0401:17
JennyBlueBirdwell I can add new items now01:18
JennyBlueBirdstill can't move existing ones down however :P01:18
JennyBlueBirdonly up :S01:18
JennyBlueBirdknome, yea, the rest seems to work , can create new elements and sub-menus01:21
JennyBlueBirdbut it seems a bit slow01:21
JennyBlueBirdalso, that delete button kinda needs a confirmation dialogue :S01:22
JennyBlueBirdbut that is upstream's job I guess01:22
JennyBlueBirdcan't create a new separator either01:23
JennyBlueBirdoh well, it "kinda works"01:23
JennyBlueBirdknome, I'm getting the feeling that the whole menu system is a tad overengineered01:27
GridCubewhat i do is to create a new panel and add launchers boxes on them :P01:27
knomethe menu system is not. that's just xml files...01:27
JennyBlueBirdI meant more that it appears that there's a billion little places to put those files01:28
JennyBlueBirdand there are too many options in the entries01:29
knomeJennyBlueBird, if you want something not that complex, add a launcher menu01:30
JennyBlueBirdknome, ah yea, that works01:31
JennyBlueBirdbut I take it new apps are not added to that by default ...01:32
* JennyBlueBird is hard to please01:32
knomethat's why the menu specification is no simple01:32
JennyBlueBirdI guess xfce just needs its own menu editor01:32
JennyBlueBirdwork in progress ?01:32
knomeit's planned, but i don't know if there is any actual progress01:32
JennyBlueBirdurk... the menu entry format seems more complicated than iptables01:33

marcussomeone in here ?11:40
marcusI got a question about configuration of an xfce panel11:41
marcuscan you help me ?11:41
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience11:41
marcusokay than lets start ^^11:42
marcusI want to change the background color of the workspace switcher in panel1.11:42
knomeyou need to edit the GTK theme then, and it will change all the workspace switcher backgrounds11:43
marcusbut it shall not change the panel color etc only the background color of this workspace switch application11:44
knomeyes. but you still need to edit the GTK theme11:45
marcusin xubuntu 11.10 die panelcolor is different from the windows color although greybird is selected.11:46
knometrue, that's intentional11:46
marcuscan you tell me the path to the gtk theme ?11:47
knomei suggest taking a backup though11:47
marcusmaybe thats a good idea11:47
knomeyou can copy it to /home/yourusername/.themes/greybird11:47
knomeand edit that11:47
knomeand it will override the theme in /usr11:48
knomebut it will only work for your user11:48
knomebut that's hardly a problem usually11:48
marcusand if I delete it then it should fallback ?11:48
knomeyes, then it uses the thenme from /usr11:48
knomeif you want, you can rename the folder11:48
knomeand you can switch between both at all times11:48
marcusI will try it11:48
marcusto copy I need to type : sudo cp  -r /usr/share/themes/greybird /home/user/.themes/greybird right ?11:51
knomeshouldn't need sudo to copy, but yes11:51
marcusand -r for recursive ?11:51
marcusso I copied the theme to my home folder and now I opened it with gedit. What lines do I need to change ? Do you know ?11:59
knomei suppose i should, but i can't remember :)12:00
knomeochosi, ^12:00
marcusthen you could open it by yourself without changing and maybe you remember :-)12:01
knomesorry, i just wont12:02
well_laid_lawnsearch in the theme file for panel - gedit has a search function12:02
knomeit's been ages since i touched a gtkrc file12:02
well_laid_lawnnot all gtk themes have a panel section12:02
marcus I give it a try12:03
marcusgnarf its to me like trying to read hieroglyphs :-)12:05
marcusokay here is one12:05
marcusgtk_color_scheme= "panel_bg:#686868" # Panel bg color12:05
marcusbut I suppose thats for the complete panel12:06
well_laid_lawn686868 is about a medium dark grey what colour is the panel?12:07
well_laid_lawnand the desktop changer12:07
marcuslike this12:09
well_laid_lawnthere's three clours involved there12:10
well_laid_lawnpanel, focused workspace and the other workspace12:11
well_laid_lawnso might be bg, fg and base12:11
marcusI just want to change the colour of the unfocused workspace to be more bright12:12
marcusso I can see better what workspace I have switched to12:12
well_laid_lawnI dunno offhand which that'll be - try adding a value for base12:13
marcusby the way, what means bg and fg ?12:13
knomeback- and foreground12:13
marcusah okay12:14
marcusin the gtkrc-file there is this section : base[NORMAL]      = @base_color12:14
marcusbase[PRELIGHT]    = shade (0.95, @bg_color)12:14
marcusbase[ACTIVE]      = shade (0.92, @selected_bg_color)12:14
marcusbase[SELECTED]    = shade (0.93, @selected_bg_color)12:14
marcusbase[INSENSITIVE] = @bg_color12:14
marcuswhat do you think I should change to ?12:14
well_laid_lawnso if the panel section doesn't mention one of those options those values would be used as a default12:15
marcusI guess I should change the value of base[PRELIGHT] , what do you think ?12:16
marcusbut what means "shade" ? Is this a colour ?12:17
well_laid_lawnshade means don't use the full colour but only the values percent of it12:18
well_laid_lawne.g. shade 0.95 is a bit darker12:19
well_laid_lawnshade 1.1 is a bit lighter12:19
knomeafaik prelight is something that is shown on hovering the area12:19
marcusit makes sence, now that you mentioned it12:20
marcusbut which of the 4 is to be changed ? active or selected are not those I could imagine  to need to change12:21
well_laid_lawnyou'll have to have a play with them all to find out - it's easy enough to restart the panel to check12:22
marcusIn ubuntu it was killall gnome-panel12:23
marcuswhich command is it in xubuntu ?12:23
well_laid_lawntry   killall xfce4-panel && xfce4-panel &12:23
well_laid_lawnI think it has a restart option12:24
well_laid_lawnnot on a xfce box atm12:24

jmcantrelli switched all my computers over to xubuntu over the weekend. it's very refreshing getting out the unity mess15:20
holsteinjmcantrell: i remember you... im still getting used to XFCE, but im finding it different, and quite useable15:21
holsteinive worked out any dealbreakers, and im happy to be settling in :)15:21
jmcantrellholstein: yeah, i remember you too, and i agree. the problems that i experienced initially were mainly just unfamiliarity15:22
jmcantrellone thing i find slightly unsettling is that there are a number of gnome components. what are your (or anyone's) thoughts on this?15:23
primaryI made btrfs my roof filesystem. Things did not explode. However when booting I had an error "Sparse files not allowed"(some other stuff, vague) "Press any key to continue." Things booted normally then. Wonder what that was.15:23
holsteini mean, everything works... whatever is pulled in is not pulling in much from gnome15:24
holsteindoesnt feel heavy15:24
holsteinim not looking for XFCE to be light though15:24
primaryAlso, with the LightDM, it has an 'Xubuntu session' and an "Xfce session', what is the difference?15:24
holsteinim looking for a desktop like experience similar to what i am confortable with from using gnome215:24
jmcantrellholstein: it just seems odd that there are components that are from gnome. i thought it was supposed to be separate from gnome15:24
holsteinif i want barebones light, i will use LXDE15:25
knomeprimary, xubuntu sesion is all the xubuntu default settings loaded, xfce is just bare bare xfce, i suggest using xubuntu.15:25
primaryI thought as much, thanks.15:25
holsteinjmcantrell: it is seperate, but if something works, and works well... why reinvent the wheel15:25
jmcantrellholstein: that's a good point15:26
holsteinalso, it could be that some of what we are considering 'gnome apps' are just apps that both use15:26
jmcantrellholstein: i'm thinking specifically about the gnome keyring15:27
knomenot all xfce apps are used in xubuntu, since we also try to be easy-to-use15:27
holsteinyeah, thats true as well... xubuntu might customize for ease of use, more so than the typically XFCE experience15:28
jmcantrellknome: what kind of apps?15:28
knomejmcantrell, small "goodies" and some of the "xfce apps" might also not get included, if we think there is a better one15:29
knomejmcantrell, for example, gthumb is the default image viewer for oneiric, since ristretto is mostly broken15:29
knomejmcantrell, it is by no means given that any "xfce app" will be included15:29
jmcantrellknome: what's wrong with restretto?15:30
knomealso the "xfce apps" might not have anything to do with the core DE, so that's a bit misleading anyway15:30
knomejmcantrell, if you try to use it with thumbnailbar, it freezes/crashes15:30
knomejmcantrell, also, for example xfburn was only recently set as default, because we didn't think it was good enough for a default burning app before15:31
jmcantrellknome: what was the default before? brasero?15:31
knomenot that it couldn't still be the default, if we just chose so :)15:32
knomejmcantrell, if you're interested in the development process, join our mailing list and/or the development irc channel, #xubuntu-devel15:33
jmcantrellknome: oh, maybe you can help me with this. the "web browser" launcher doesn't show chromium as an option, and any attempt to make chromium the default browser, it doesn't seem to recognize it15:33
jmcantrelli can enter chromium as a custom option, but then chromium doesn't think it's the default15:34
knomejmcantrell, hmh. did you look at "preferred applications" in setting manager?15:34
holsteinpersonally, i found i had to enable gnome services to get a web browser choice to stick15:35
jmcantrellknome: yeah, it behaves the same way15:35
holsteinthis is my first time living in xfce/xubuntu though, so im still suspicious that its probably something i need to learn15:35
knomejmcantrell, even if you selected the "debian sensible browser" ?15:36
knomejmcantrell, that should make chromium the default if you have that and FF.15:36
knomejmcantrell, also, check that the launcher is pointed to the command 'x-www-browser', not 'firefox'15:36
holsteinknome: that could be my issue right there15:36
jmcantrellknome: yeah, i tried that. then chromium doesn't recognize itself as the default15:36
knomeactually, x-www-browser always opens chromium :P15:37
jmcantrellknome: yeah, i changed the alternative to chromium15:37
knomei'm not too familiar with this, because i'm personally happy with ff15:37
jmcantrellknome: well, i'm real happy for you :P15:38
holsteinff got fast again... i got so comfortable with chromium though there when ff was just awful15:38
jmcantrellholstein: yeah, ditto15:39
go8765Hello. How I can start manage mouse moving by keyboard in xfce?15:41
jmcantrellknome: where should i report this bug?15:43
knomejmcantrell, launchpad, but i'm not sure against which package.15:44
baizonjmcantrell: http://www.ubuntu.com/community/report-problem15:44
jmcantrellknome: my first thought is one of the exo packages, but i'm not sure15:44
holsteingo8765: http://gizmod.sourceforge.net/ looks interesting15:44
knomejmcantrell, maybe you could search LP first if there is a similar bug15:45
knomejmcantrell, and just chime in if there is15:45
jmcantrellknome: i'll check15:45
knomejmcantrell, also, feel free to paste me the bug url, whether you found one or filed a new one15:45

go8765sorry.. english, not my native... I cant understand what you mean. can you explain? you asked - if I want to use NumLock to move mouse cursor?21:40
SysiI just guess that is ment to work for moving mouse pointer with numpad's arrows21:42
go8765Sysi, sorry... but I dont understand you again. You want to say - that you think that it will work if I use numlock buttons?21:54
SysiI donät get what you mean with "numlock buttons", the thing with numbers on the right side of standard keyboard21:54
