Fudgedoes xubuntu use ubiquity05:46
hobgoblinFudge: I believe so06:22
axelothello guys, may ask for help?09:44
axeloti'd like to use my Wireless N 150 USB Adapter on my mum's laptop with xubuntu but i've no idea of what to do (noobie here)09:46
mysteriousdarrenaxelot: what brand? more people respond at #ubuntu at this time of night/day depending on where you are.09:51
axelotsorry, i forgot, i have a D_LINK usb n 150 dwa-12509:55
axeloti try to use ndswrapper with de .inf files on the bundle cd, but it doesn't work. instead, the computer crash by error09:56
mysteriousdarrendid you find a driver? linux windows?09:56
axelotnot yet, at least not the right one09:56
axelotstill try on ralink according by some forum10:02
mysteriousdarrendid you search on dlink's website? sorry I am helping about five people at the moment10:03
duelleHi, I would like to reinstall my system. Currently I have an encrypted partition. Do I have to back up anything to get it going after reinstall?11:04
mysteriousdarrenaxelot: did you try ubuntuforums?11:05
mysteriousdarrenduelle: are you gonna wipe the drive and start fresh?11:05
duellemysteriousdarren: I would like to wipe my /home - the encrypted partition won't be touched for now11:07
mysteriousdarrenI would back it up and wipe and then reinstall and reimage.11:08
mongyI have the Places panel plugin and the recent documents doesnt display recently opened files.11:10
duellemysteriousdarren: Currently I do not have that much space to back up the whole partition. I want to switch from ubuntu to xubuntu to try it on my system. Later when i have enough backup space i will reinstall my whole system including that encrypted one.11:10
mysteriousdarrenduelle: I would install the environment and go from there, the desktop environment will stay on if you want to change later.11:11
mysteriousdarrenmongy: what is your problem? I don't understand.11:12
duellemysteriousdarren: Sorry - I don't understand what you mean with "environment" and what "stays on" :(11:13
mysteriousdarrenduelle: desktop environment. what ubuntu are you using?11:14
duellecurrently ubuntu 11.10. But drivers are messed up a bit and causing some problems. So i would like to reinstall with xubuntu.11:15
mysteriousdarrentotally reinstall? or just change desktop environments?11:16
duellemysteriousdarren: Reinstall - because I can't get rid of those problems and nobody could tell me how to solve those problems yet. Seems to be some NVidia/Flash stuff..11:17
mysteriousdarrenduelle: If its like that I would reinstall and keep just the one partition in that case.11:19
duellemysteriousdarren: : Yeah, that' what I'd like to do. But I'm curious whether I just need the passphrase for the encrypted partition to remount afert reinstall or if there's something else I should back up to get it going afterwards11:20
mysteriousdarrenpassphrase is all11:20
duellemysteriousdarren: Ok, thanks a lot!11:24
mysteriousdarrenduelle: your welcome11:24

mongyin thunar, how do I get it to let me do 'properties' when I select multiple folder?  it's greyed out13:51
hobgoblinmongy: from what I can tell you can't13:54
hobgoblinbut I'm sure there is a way with some customising, just don't know how :(13:54
hobgoblinI installed nautilus and use --no-desktop13:55
mongysuch a simple task and can't be done. ugh.. i r disappoint13:55
hobgoblinso was I13:55
hobgoblinmongy - found a work around if you want13:57
mongyhit me13:57
hobgoblinno idea if it would work in a root thnar though13:58
hobgoblinjust tried it out and it works13:58
hobgoblinslow though :(13:59
mongynot bad though14:00
hobgoblinbetter than having nautilus at least :)14:01
mongyjust need a nice icon,..14:02
hobgoblinwell if you work it out let me know :p14:02
hobgoblinmine just says thingy at the moment - was just trying it out lol14:03
mongygdu-info icon seems ok14:03
hobgoblinoh - didn't even see the icon box - been awake too long I think14:03
mongyfirst run its slow, after that its ok.  nice find14:03
hobgoblinthanks - not often I manage to help much in here - xubuntu's a bitnew to me :)14:05
mongyI didnt even bother googling.  I am my own worst customer.14:06
hobgoblinha ha ha14:07
mongythat one's going in my custom xubuntu14:09
mongycustom live iso i mean14:10
hobgoblinI assumed that was your meaning14:10
mongymeh,  what is it with mint's obsession with the colour green.14:19
hobgoblinenvy perhaps14:19
mongygnome-classic/mate/cinammon are pretty much made irrelevant with xfce :)14:19
hobgoblinyou'd not think so if you were forum staff ...14:20
Unit193hobgoblin: You being offtopic here? ;)14:20
hobgoblin:( on and on and on and on and on it goes14:20
hobgoblinUnit193: pffft14:20
SmokeyD_what vnc server (or other remote desktop prog) can I install to enable the currently running xfce session to be controlled remotely?16:08
holsteinSmokeyD_: i have used vino16:08
SmokeyD_Marzata, hmm, I am not currently at that machine, but I enabled the settings using gconftool-216:13
SmokeyD_I used "gconftool-2 -s -t bool /desktop/gnome/remote_access/enabled true"16:13
holsteinright.. i just run vino-preferences as Marzata suggests16:13
SmokeyD_and gconftool-2 -s -t bool /desktop/gnome/remote_access/prompt_enabled false16:13
SmokeyD_holstein, as I said, I am not at that machine and therefore can't run vino-preferences16:13
holsteinnot gconftool.. try that when you are near the machine... thats where i 'enable' it16:13
holsteinSmokeyD_: there are other vnc servers it you are trying to configure one via SSH.. is that the case?16:14
SmokeyD_holstein, yes16:14
SmokeyD_holstein, but it seems that tightvnc for instance don't let me take over the currently running xfce session, but rather start a new desktop session. Or am I mistaken?16:18
holsteinSmokeyD_: you can sudo restart if that is the case, but i wouldnt think so16:19
SmokeyD_holstein, tightvncserver indeed starts a new display, it doesn't control the already open display. If I tell it to run on display 0, it complains that that display is already taken due to /tmp/.X0-lock16:26
holsteinSmokeyD_: not sure what to tell you.. that has not beeen my findings... you can always forward X and start vino-preferences, or try one of the other vnc servers16:27
vjacobif I know that my kernel has CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_ACPI_IBM=m (from reading the .config)16:38
vjacobhow do I then find out what module to 'modprobe' based on this knowledge?16:38
vjacob(as a general rule)16:38
SmokeyD_Ah, I got it working. Using x11vnc -display :0 -noxdamage16:39
mongychrome remote desktop aint half bad. its an option.16:43
holsteinmongy: i hadnt heard of that yet...16:44
mongychrome extension.16:44
holsteincool... that sounds easy16:44
mongyotherwise I'd use freenx if I were needing such a tihng.16:48
mongyfaster than vnc, imo16:48
vjacobwhen trying to remove libcups2:i386 I get a dependency problem due to libgtk2.0.0:i386 depending on it16:48
vjacobshould libcups2:i386 not be removed? I just apt-get autoremoved a number of :i386 packages related to sound16:49
vjacobmy uname says i'm running x86_64, if it makes any difference16:50
mongywhat did you install that needs those packages16:51
vjacobno idea16:52
vjacoband now I'm starting to wonder if I have more packages such as this16:53
mongymine are amd64 versions.16:55
mongywas it something like zsnes or flashplugin ?16:55
mongyhell, removing libcups2 on mine tries removing half my system16:57
mongyand wants to install a shedload of kde stuff16:57
vjacobit could have been flashplugin16:58
mongyyou are better using the one from the partner repo if you use 64bit.  it doesnt use 32 libs16:58
vjacobi thought I was using the one from the repo16:58
vjacobi wasn't even aware I had flashplug installed prior to 10 minutes ago16:59
mongyprobably installed with the xubuntu-restriced package17:04
mongywhich you can install during installation17:04
vjacobthanks mongy17:16
mongyfor what17:21
vjacobassuming your comments were to my question, I appreciate the response17:29
mongywhat was the package in the end, what did you do to fix17:31
vjacobmongy: don't know yet17:43
vjacob"sudo apt-get build-dep --no-install-recommends linux-image-$(uname -r)" results in ...17:44
vjacob"Picking 'linux' as source package instead of 'linux-image-3.0.0-15-generic' E: Unable to find a source package for linux"17:44
vjacobwhat gives?17:44
vjacobis there a better (kernel compile) guide around than https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile ?17:44
baizonvjacob: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=5683517:46
vjacobbaizon, i found that myself but that thread started in 200517:48
vjacoband i'm looking for a guide, not a forum to help with compile problems17:48
vjacobmongy: any idea why step B) does not work (my previous question) following that guide?17:49
vjacobperhaps i will just compile a kernel some other time and make do with this fan going on all the time.17:51
whitmanHi, how can I get the keychain to work within a terminal?  I'm always prompted for my key passphrase when using ssh. (xubuntu 11.10)18:27
