paraxxoUnit193: idk how to10:22
paraxxoUnit193: http://www.myapitips.com/2011/11/02/how-to-change-monitor-resolution-in-ubuntu-11-10/10:34
paraxxodoes .xprofile exist in lubuntu ?10:34
paraxxoor it tells me to make one10:34
head_victimparaxxo: it appears no one here currently knows the answer to your question. If the information isn't easily available elsewhere I'd suggest trying the mailing list for someone who might know more.10:52
head_victimparaxxo: and I thought the details were in the topic but they're not. The mailing list details are at https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/lubuntu-users10:55
paraxxoidk how to do that stuff10:56
paraxxoonly need to make my res 1024x600 16:910:56
mysteriousdarrenparaxxo: try #ubuntu my brain is fried, they would know10:56
head_victimparaxxo: http://askubuntu.com/questions/95977/set-a-specific-screen-resolution-with-xrandr has half the answer - it would appear making it work on boot isn't solve din that part yet10:57
paraxxohead_victim: but it doesnt say how to make it 16:910:59
head_victimparaxxo: surely changing the resolution in that line to what you want will make it 16:911:19
head_victimparaxxo: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-change-display-resolution-settings-using-xrandr.html is more step by step, change 1024x768 to whatever resolution you're trying to achieve.11:21

freerouteDoes anyone ever used the smartmontools package? In particular the badblocks? I'm doing "badblocks -nsv -p2 -o ./badblocks_result /dev/sdc" and it fails to show me the block numbers which are already checked (implicitly specified by -s handle). It's an external USB HDD (eIDE) with an NTSF format.13:10

gdea73Hey, does anyone know where I can (re) download Lubuntu 10.10 alternate?18:33
gdea73The download links and torrents provided are broken / do not work, and my localised copy of the ISO is I think corrupted18:33
gdea73(I've burned it twice, and the boot image is supposedly corrupt each time. I burned the discs slowly from 2 different computers.)18:34
gdea73phillw: the links on phillw.net are broken as well :/18:36
MrChrisDruifgdea73; the links on the lubuntu wiki aren't working?18:38
MrChrisDruifgdea73; is lubuntu 10.10 the only viable option for you?18:40
gdea73MrChrisDruif: I don't believe so... let me check again18:40
gdea73I am downloading 11.10 alternate now, I suppose I could use this, I just thought 10.10 would be optimal for slower computers.18:41
MrChrisDruifWhy would you think so gdea73 ?18:41
gdea73Wasn't there that problem with CPUs that are pre-PIII after a certain release of Ubuntu... ?18:41
gdea73well I might as well try. I'm going to be installing on my old server, the Pentium 4, first, which could probably run the standard Ubuntu distribution anyway18:42
MrChrisDruifphillw; you know about that right? ^18:42
gdea73After which I was to experiment with my PII with 128MB of RAM.18:42
gdea73Which I figured may run better with a slightly older version. But I may be entirely wrong.18:43
tony_site:linuxtracker.org lubuntu alternate 10.1018:43
gdea73I attempted to download the ISO from that torrent but I received no data after a couple of hours.18:44
gdea73this was the wiki link, which still is broken, I think: http://phillw.net/lubuntu-10.10-alternate.iso18:44
MrChrisDruifgdea73; "As support for the i386, i486, i586 chipsets has been dropped from both the kernel and GCC by Ubuntu from the 10.10 series onwards, lubuntu will continue to backport to the ppa updates for 10.04. 10.04 Has all the details."18:44
gdea73MrChrisDruif: cool, that's a relief. I may as well try the newest version on the P2 as well to see how it works. ;)18:45
gdea73(besides that thing is driving me insane; I'm probably going to take it apart and get rid of the case, replace it with a P3, haha)18:45
Gege71hello , ... is there any firewall GUI installed on lubuntu ? or should i install it myself ?18:47
ubottuUbuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Gufw (GNOME) and Guarddog (KDE Lucid and Maverick) also exist.18:54
MrChrisDruifGege71; ^18:54
MrChrisDruifIn Lubuntu is hence also no GUI firewall installed Gege7118:54
Gege71thank you <MrChrisDruif> :)19:15
MrChrisDruifYou're welcome Gege71 ^_^19:16
Gege71could anyone try this command : ping6 www.yahoo.com19:30
Gege71i have this result : unknown host19:30
Gege71strange since http://test-ipv6.com/ says that i have a vald IPv6 adress19:31
MrChrisDruifGege71; try "ping -c 6 www.yahoo.com"19:48
MrChrisDruifI think the error was trying "ping6" instead of "ping -c 6"19:48
Gege71it works, but -c 6 means "-count 6"19:49
Gege71not ipv6 :)  right ?19:49
MrChrisDruifWith me I get "No IPv6 address detected" on the site you mentioned, so I couldn't check19:50
MrChrisDruifI thought you meant that19:50
Gege71maybe should you try to make it work ? http://www.worldipv6launch.org/  :)19:51
Gege71going to diner ... brb19:51
MrChrisDruif-I interface address19:51
MrChrisDruif              Set  source address to specified interface address. Argument may19:51
MrChrisDruif              be numeric IP address or name of device. When pinging IPv6 link-19:51
MrChrisDruif              local address this option is required.19:51
Gege71i should read carefully the help then19:52
Gege71 thanks19:52
MrChrisDruifGege71; it was in "man ping" not "ping -h"19:55
Gege71MrChrisDruif> last thing about IPv6 : "ping6 www.google.com" works because google is "ipv6 ready", but not yahoo ... :)20:48
MrChrisDruifAh, so yahoo was to blame ^_^20:48
calamarihi. how can I adjust the size of the fonts used in gnome applications?21:46
MrChrisDruifcalamari; same place all the fonts are changed?21:48
calamarigues I should file a bug then?21:51
calamarichange the one in the lubuntu dialog and it didn't do anything21:51
kanliotexactly what did you do and what did you expect?22:02
calamariI went to Preferences > Customize Look and Feel. Widget tab. At the bottom I clicked "Default font" and changed the settings then clicked OK then clicked Apply. I expected the fonts to change on the taskbar, my programs, etc. Nothing changed. I tried closing my programs and reopening them but that also did not work. Have not tried rebooting.22:08
kanliotyeah that's a known bug with the taskbar22:14
kanliottry changing the icon size that's the workaround22:14
kanliotyou have to rightclick to get taskbar properties22:14
calamariI actually did change the icon size22:15
kanliotchange it enough and the font will change22:15
calamarihowever, my other programs aren't the taskbar22:15
kanliotlike i do22:15
calamarilike xchat22:15
kanliotwhat other programs22:15
kanliotxchat has it's own font settings22:15
kanliotdonno pdgin22:16
calamarithe desktop icons22:16
calamarithe file manager22:16
kanliotfile manager should be working after you did look and feel22:17
kanliotdesktop might require you to log out, login22:17
calamarimaybe I should just reboot .. but that shouldn't really be necessary imo.. still I will try it22:18
calamarithanks! :) and thanks for your ideas22:18
