TVasEyesice10001: how about a simple statement of the actual problem?07:31
ice10001!! A response: :)07:31
ubottuice10001: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)07:31
ice10001basically, how to setup xubuntu 64 (11.10) software centre to connect behind proxy07:32
TVasEyesah, networking isn't my forte (and I still use 32bit 11.10), sorry.07:32
TVasEyesbtw, exclamation mark prompts the bot.07:33
ice10001thanks, I dont use irc very often, and nor do I see who is replying (sort of too trusting perhaps)07:36
ice10001thanks for response07:36
TVasEyeswelcome, next time perhaps :)07:37
Unit193I'd assume it'd support the env var of http_proxy, so you *should* be able to put something like "export http_proxy=" in your bash?07:44

ice10001Hi all,11:07
ice10001anyone here to help on xubuntu 64 (11.10) proxy prob?11:07
Marzatasome tool to make screenshot of a whole web page. idea?12:52
baizonwhat browser?12:54
Marzatabaizon: ff, cr, ミドリ12:57
Marzatabaizon: Not available for your platform12:58
Marzatame on xubu 11.1012:59
TVasEyesMarzata: one option would be to take screenshots of the visible part, then use something like http://netpbm.sourceforge.net/doc/pnmstitch.html12:59
MarzataTVasEyes: oh, pain13:00
TVasEyes'fraid so.13:00
TVasEyesotoh, you have more freedoms (fileformat etc)13:01
MarzataTVasEyes: better Hugin to make the panorama :D13:01
TVasEyesah, ok, don't know Hugin, must read up.13:01
TVasEyeser yes, looks easier to operate than command-line util ;)13:02
Marzatano problem with cli, if it only works13:03
TVasEyesno, I'm sure you're right about Hugin.  anyway, stitching together would seem to be the only cross-browser/cross-platform way of doing.13:04
hydesterhi, i just installed xubuntu 11.10 on a new machine with just a SATA 3g drive.  the install worked fine ,but on reboot i just get the blinking cursor and no way to get to boot menu and no splash screen is seen.  is this evidence of an obvious problem?13:05
TVasEyeshydester: gut feeling: missing the correct driver from initrd, but I haven't used xubuntu long enough myself to talk you through this.13:08
hydesterTVasEyes: any different with ubuntu or you mean you've used other distros?13:09
TVasEyesI use slackware mostly and only had xubuntu for a couple of months.  there are significant differences, eg lilo vs grub bootloader etc. I wouldn't feel confident.13:10
TVasEyeshowever, do some rearch re initrd.13:11
TVasEyesthat supplies drivers to kernel at boot time13:11
hydesteranother factor is that i'm installing with /boot as a primary partition but / as a logical.  but from what i read that shouldn't cause any problems13:16
TVasEyesno, I've the same arrangement.13:17
TVasEyeshydester: if you have a live cd at hand, boot and note down relevant output from  lspci -vv  which will give details of all devices and drivers in use.13:19
TVasEyeswill help to trouble-shoot later.13:19
hydesterk, thanks13:20
TVasEyesgood luck.13:21

hydesterare there issues with installing to UEFI SATA that the regular installer doesn't support?14:45
hydesterthat is, after rebooting on the new install14:45
holsteinhydester: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFIBooting15:09
TVasEyeshydester: uefi may be at the root of your trouble, see 'Non-Mac x86_64 UEFI systems' in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFIBooting  if you haven't done so already.15:09
hydesterTVasEyes and holstein, i tried IDE compatibility mode and it installed, so it indeed is UEFI related.  that page has a lot of variations of instructions.  i guess it'll take some time to sort it all out15:16
holsteinhydester: i typically just try the live CD's and test from there15:17
hydesterholstein: the live CD saw EUFI just fine, it was just failure to boot off of the installed drive.  what can i test via live CD?15:18
TVasEyeshydester: glad you've a running system.  I think we'll get a lot of difficulties in the future from the move to uefi.15:18
hydesteris running in IDE mode vs EUFI have any downside?15:19
holsteinhydester: not sure what you can test... i read that you were asking "will i run into problems"... if you already are running into issues, feel free and elaborate..15:19
hydesterholstein: ah, sorry.  i was asking elsewhere too and i didn't realize i didn't include details here.  basically i can install to my EUFI device just fine with the live CD (USB), but when i reboot i get the blinking cursor on text screen.  this is the only OS on this drive15:20
hydesterso it seems that the live install doesn't support EUFI grub, at least in my scenario15:21
TVasEyeshydester: not sure since all my computers are 2 years+ old, I got (part of) my info from http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Securely-booting-Linux-a-difficult-proposition-1417990.html15:21
holsteinwonder if its as simple as a grub error...15:22
hydesterholstein: could be, but i never get any text on the screen and holding down shift doesn't help15:22
holsteini think i would try some other boot loader that we know works, and go from there15:22
hydesterwhat boot loader would you recommend?15:23
hydesteralso, is there a downside to using IDE vs EUFI mode on a SATA?15:23
holsteinhydester: i have not tested first hand with that hardware15:24
holsteini would just search around and see if any claim good support15:24
xubuntu979fuck /part15:24
hobgoblinreally ...15:25
hydesterholstein: so i switched my bios back to AHCI after installing via IDE mode and it still boots.  is this a workaround i found or do you think it is an illusion and still is running in IDE mode?15:33
hydesterhydester: it looks like it is working properly.  so the AHCI installer make be broken for my configuration.  i gues IDE install first does fake it out somehow15:41
hydesterheh, i didn't mean to address myself15:41
XartaoXgood day!15:44
XartaoXI have 3 issues I'm trying to sort: A) My machine won't come out of suspend. .. B) I can't get my machine to remember my extended desktop dual-head setup. It always defaults to clone mode on reboot. .. C) My keyboard volume knob doesn't do what I want. it only adjusts the PulseAudio volume, NOT the system volume; and in a VERY limited range.15:46
XartaoXre: B) ... i have to use arandr every boot to set the extended desktop. i saved an .sh script of the setup, but now I don't know what to DO with that script.15:47
XartaoXincidentally, I'm using Ubuntu Studio (11.10) .. they directed me here for these questions. :D15:47
MarzataXartaoX: you use a Thinkpad?15:49
XartaoXdesktop ... Pentium D dual 3.4Ghz, 3G DDR2 RAM, PCIe ATI x600 256M gfx15:54
XartaoXIt's a Dell Optiplex GX62015:56
XartaoXI tried other distros on Live dvd or USB key .. some of them got my display right immediately, and came out of standby just fine15:57
XartaoXUbuntu Studio is now fully installed on my HD tho ... no other OSes on there either15:58
baizonyou need to stop that reconnecting =)18:01
XartaoXany help with my above questions/problems? plz :D18:28
GridCube_care to sumarize it for me XartaoX ?18:28

knomeXartaoX, B) applications menu -> settings -> settings manager -> session and startup -> tab "application autostart" -> add the script there18:30
GridCube_mmm i've had those suspend problems as well, but i've avoided it by never going to suspend, just blocking the screen seems ok18:30
GridCube_so i put it to "never" on the suspend at plugged and unplugged :P18:31
XartaoXi have it set to never AUTOMATICALLY suspend .. but when i go to sleep, i like to suspend it so that when i wake up i can just hit the spacebar whilst i do my "morning duties" and when i come back all the apps and windows i had open are up and ready18:35
XartaoXok, added that script to my startup. thx. i'll see if that works shortly18:35
XartaoXi notice in that Session and Startup panel a "SFCE Volume Daemon (Daemon managing the volume multimedia keys and displaying volume notifications)"18:35
XartaoXseems to me that might have something to do with C) ??18:36
GridCube_XartaoX: for that exactly i never suspend, using the block screen instead its much useful18:36
XartaoXi'm not familiar with this "block screen" ??18:36
GridCube_i think i'm having a language barrier here, it is "lock screen"?18:38
GridCube_i dont know18:38
knomelock screen sounds correct18:38
GridCube_but its not suspension, because suspension sends your disks to sleep too18:38
XartaoXi may as well just turn off my monitors then instead of lock the screen ... i live alone and am the only one that uses my computers18:39
GridCube_:) that works too18:39
XartaoXtypo above .. SFCE should be XFCE XD18:39
XartaoXbrb .. pizza ready :)18:40
XartaoXmmm nom nom nom18:41
XartaoXany ideas on the volume knob issue?18:43

c_smithdaysahead5, I gotta agree, Xubuntu is pretty awesome, thinking about installing the DE since I have Ubuntu for certain things.23:47
c_smiththat leads me to my question: is it safe to install the Xubuntu DE metapackage?23:48
ParkerRc_smith, Should be ok23:48
c_smithcool, I've tried Xubuntu before, it's really solid if you don't need too much flashy stuff23:49
ubottuLists of common questions and answers about Xubuntu can be found at http://xubuntu.org/news/tag/faq/. See also: http://help.ubuntu.com/community/CommonQuestions23:50
c_smithalso, in Xubuntu, is there a way to mount an Acer Iconia Tab A100?23:50
gry2thunar auto mounts devices, yes23:51
c_smithtrue, but this tablet isn't automounted in even Unity. doesn't even show up,23:51
c_smithNautilus I should say instead of Unity, shouldn't I?23:52
gry2how do you mount it then? or you currently can't do that yet?23:52
c_smithI connect it, but nothing really appears.23:52
c_smiththe tablet itself works great.23:52
GridCube_c_smith: read this: http://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/alternative23:53
c_smithGridCube, I never knew you could completely replace a DE (including getting rid of the old one)23:54
c_smiththanks for that info23:54
GridCube_c_smith: tried mounting your tablet with gigolo?23:54
GridCube_c_smith: in the case of unity its rather important, else it would pretty much fu... mess things up23:55
c_smithnope. just got the tablet Wednesday, haven't tried mounting it in a different DE.23:55
c_smithGridCube, ah, I see. yeah, I see where Mark Shuttleworth is going with Unity, and how it could help, I just dislike the interface.23:55
c_smithbut that's a topic that I should reserve for an Offtopic channel, eh?23:56
GridCube_yep :)23:56
c_smithlast I tried using Xubuntu, there was one Thunar plugin I couldn't get to compile (the repos didn't have it) the plugin is Thunar Share, is it depricated.23:57
c_smithit's a plugin similar to what Nautilus has to share files over a network.23:57
GridCube_it should be there if you install gvfs23:57
GridCube_by defautl23:58
GridCube_i don't really know why we don't ship gvfs by default tho :/23:58
GridCube_in fact that plugin being there causes a few problems because thunar tries to locate network shares every time it opens for the first time, giving lots of errors like hanging for a minute and then openning like 3 windows :P23:59
c_smithhmmmmm, I read the plugin I was trying to compile handled SMB,23:59
