ako_I have some problems with bluebird theme, can anyone help me please?00:44
xubuntu926hi all!00:45
xubuntu926any opinion whether this is better than ubuntu?00:45
ubottuUsually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.00:46
xubuntu926ok thansks, sorry00:46
* GridCube opinion is "yes"00:46
xubuntu926hahaha thanks00:47
GridCubenow go to #ubuntu and ask if its better to anyother thing :P00:47
Piciand I'll give the same answer there.00:48
xubuntu926so it really is personal preference? theres no big upside?00:49
PiciIts just a different user interface.00:50
Unit193If you like, Unity, then Ubuntu is [better[, if you like Xfce, then Xubuntu is [better[00:50
xubuntu926well i hate unity so I think I'll give xubuntu a try00:51
xubuntu926thanks a bunch man00:51
Unit193There are still more options than Xubuntu too00:53

ako_I have some problems with bluebird theme, can anyone help me please?10:04
Sysiask a question and see if someone knows10:05
ako_When I change the theme from Greybird to Bluebird, the controls become ugly, as if there is a problem like missing a library or something10:05
ako_how can I find out what is wrong?10:05
ako_I am using 11.1010:05
Sysion all apps?10:07
ako_(I think) only those coming from gnome10:07
ako_like Evince10:07
Sysithen that's because bluebird lacks gtk3-part which some apps use10:07
ako_Can it be fixed?10:08
Sysisudo cp -r /usr/share/themes/greybird/gtk-3.0 /usr/share/themes/Bluebird/10:10

ako_Sysi: Thanks, that fixed it! :)10:12

VelophileHi all...anyone know if the all the indicator applets are supposed to work in xfce4's indicator plugin? specifically the power and network ones19:58
CiPiVelophile, sudo apt-get install indicator-multiload20:48
CiPiI don`t know if all, but this is the best one I find...20:48
VelophileThanks, that'll show traffic and system load, the one I'm after is a replacement for Wicd or Network-Manager, it's called indicator-network and uses connman under the hood20:49
