=== yama` is now known as yama [03:43] hi! [03:45] Gday wilvk [08:24] For anyone remotely close to Brisbane, please print a few of these off and paste them up wherever is appropriate - http://spreadubuntu.org/en/material/poster/ubuntu-au-installfest [08:26] * benonsoftware would but isn't in Brisbane :) === benonsoftware is now known as OutOfControl === OutOfControl is now known as benonsoftware === benonsoftware is now known as OutOfControl [09:23] blahdeblah: did you by chance have a monitor amongst that stash you put up the other week? [09:24] I'm getting rid of my entire stash of P4 era stuff making up 2 computers to the best they can be for my nieces and nephews (going to use Edubuntu of course!) and the only thing I'm missing is 2 monitors. [09:24] head_victim: i had a 15" LCD and 19" CRT and someone has asked for them both. If they don't pick them up by the weekend, you're welcome to them, though. [09:25] Ah if they're spoken for that's ok but yeah if they don't get picked up let me know [09:43] will do [09:45] head_victim: Do you still need sponsorship for the installfest? I haven't had a chance to scratch myself since talking to you, but i'm still willing to help out that way. [09:47] blahdeblah: we gave up on the edge, we've moved to the Brisbane City Council Library in the CBD (it's free). I guess if you wanted to sponsor light refreshments perhaps? Apparently there are tea and coffee making facilities but you have to provide your own tea/coffee. I was just going to buy a jar of coffee and a packet of tea bags. Not sure how much you were wanting to spend. [10:03] head_victim: How much are you likely to spend on that? I can't conceive it being much... [10:04] Really depends on what we want to serve I guess. [10:17] That and I don't have the faintest clue how many people will even walk through the door. [10:29] head_victim: Well, name a figure, and i'll probably be happy with it. If i even get 1 day's work out of it, it's a worthwhile investment of a couple hundred bucks. [10:52] head_victim: hi. how is everything going? [10:54] jfer: pretty good, yourself? [10:55] head_victim: pretty good things are starting to slow down for the year. [10:55] Is that good or bad? [10:56] head_victim: good as it gives me a change to get back to things I want to do rather than the things that I have to do. are you planning on heading to linux.conf.au next year? [10:56] jfer: I'd love to but can't afford the trip so giving it a miss [10:57] head_victim: ok. fair enough. I will be there. sounds like they have a pretty good line up as far as talks and speakers goes. [10:58] Yeah I've been looking on enviously [10:59] head_victim: Well perhaps you will have the chance to catch some of them online or watch them later when the videos go up. [11:00] Yep hoping to [11:05] jfer: you're sunshine coast right? [11:05] yes, that is right. [11:06] Coming down for the installfest? :) [11:06] no sorry. [11:06] I am having an issue with dual monitors. my secondary monitor on the right is smaller this is causing notify to display partially of the top right of my screen. any suggestions on how to fix this? [11:07] Tis ok, just checking. [11:07] jfer: what drivers? WIth nvidia I think you can click and drag the window to the top or bottom of the rhs of the other one [11:08] That and you can offset it to whatever you want to the pixel [11:08] head_victim: how do I offset it? [11:09] If you open nvidia settings, then go to x server display configuration [11:10] There you select the monitor you want to adjust (secondary on the right) there should be a "position" that can either be "right of" "left of" "clone" etc but you want the "absolute" option [11:10] The input box to the right of that allows you to set it to the pixel, eg mine is +1920+0 as my lhs monitor is 1920 wide. [11:11] +1920-100 would be 100 pixels higher, etc. [11:11] do you understand what I mean? I am talking about NotifyOSD. [11:12] run the following command to see what I mean: notify-send test [11:20] jfer: Sunshine Coast, eh? Know anyone who needs help with Linux & network support up there? :-) [11:20] (For money, i mean... ;-) [11:21] in that case not really. [11:22] However a lot of small businesses on the sunshine coast have rather outdated systems. [11:22] That seems to be the case with a lot of small businesses - if it ain't broke, don't upgrade it. [11:24] Even if it's critical and you've got no backups and all of your data is on one 7-year-old hard disk... [11:24] jfer: yeah I was thinking maybe that if the position wasn't right it might cut some off [11:24] That's the first thing I thought of anyway [11:25] head_victim: I am not using the proprietary driver as it didn't work. [11:25] I am also experiencing issues with workplace switcher with dual monitors. has anyone else had this issue? [11:30] I don't use the workplace switcher/"multiple desktops" or dual monitors [11:31] I use dual monitors when it's convenient. I've had occasional issues with the screen background being offset. But i use 10.04 LTS with icewm as the window manager, so it's probably a bit different in how it handles it. [11:31] Workspace switching works fine, though. [11:32] blahdeblah: The issues I am experiencing are with Unity. [11:32] And the display settings icon in the notification area seems to work all right as well. [11:32] Yeah - pretty much everything's different there, i think. [11:34] jfer: sorry mate, that did work for some that had the issue, find a bug for it? [11:39] I am looking for a bug on launchpad now. I have read a lot of similar issues. Apparently notify osd is meant to be offset by the panel not the viewport so I am not sure where this bug is coming from. [12:31] jfer: I've had a fair bit of strife with my dual-screen nv setup, why couldn't you get the proprietory drivers working? [12:32] gggs: When I used the proprietary driver it said I exceeded the maximum resolution of my graphics card. [12:33] must be big monitors? [12:34] no. I think it is a driver issue. It works fine with the open driver [12:34] apart from the other issues
