mang0Hey all, I'm having real trouble with pulseaudio. It was working fine a couple of days ago, and now it's suddenly not working. In the xfce volume control icon, instead of seeing my soundcard and stuff listed, it just says "Playback: Dummy Output (PulseAudio Mixer)" and the other option is "Capture: Monitor of Dummy Output (PulseAudio Mixer). This is really weird, I've not seen these before. What can I do? I wnt sound back ;__; I posted this yesterday, b08:53
mang0ut had to go to bed before I could get an answer to fix it...08:53
well_laid_lawnmang0: did the sound stop after an upgrade?08:59
Kingsyguys, I was setting up a vnc server yesterday and in the xstartup I just put initxfce4  <--- I THINK something like that.. when I opened the vnc server it loaded xfce fine but it wasnt the normal instance.. it looked like default or something.. how do you get it to start the xubuntu interface?09:08
mang0well_laid_lawn: Well, I recently switched from gnome/unity over to xfce completely, and removed gnome. The sound has only been having problems after that. But, it was working yesterady...09:08

FeyeIs there a way in Xubuntu to get rid of a login manager and boot directly into the X environment omitting a password ? By changing a runlevel, or something like that ?10:20
FeyeI found it possible in a rergular Ubuntu using their Gnome Administration utility, but there is no such thing in xfce. Thank you.10:22
TheSheepFeye: you can set the login manager to autologin10:24
TheSheep!lightdm | Feye10:25
KingsyTheSheep: any ideas about my issue?10:25
Kingsybeen googling for a while now with no avail10:25
TheSheepKingsy: I don't use vnc, but I suppose you could just login to that account locally, choosing the xubuntu session as default10:26
TheSheepKingsy: after that it should use it by default everywhere10:26
Kingsyyeah, well the problem isnt local really, I choose xubuntu session when I log in, but if I use vnc before I log in, then it starts my user with the standard xfce session.. and does so until I log the user out and log back in, it would be nice to just start the xubuntu session from xstartup10:27
KingsyTheSheep: I don't really know who/where to ask.. even google doesnt seem to know10:28
FeyeThank you.10:28
Kingsywell if anyone gets a second and has an idea about my problem give me a shout.. thanks10:47

ThePendulumHow does one format an usb drive in xfce/xubuntu?16:03
TheSheepThePendulum: with the startup disk creator16:03
TheSheepThePendulum: in system menu16:03
ThePendulumOh hey16:04
ThePendulumCan I also use it to throw an openSUSE installation on it?16:04
TheSheepany iso16:04
ThePendulumThe ISO doens't show up when I select it16:05
ThePendulumI'll just go with the regular method then, thanks for at least showing me a way to format that drive :)16:06
TheSheepthere should be an 'other' button or something like that16:06
ThePendulumYeah, I clicked that one and selected the openSUSE Gnome installation, but after I select it, it won't show up in the Startup Disc Creator list16:06

linuxjonesis there a way to run vlc on a remote machine16:16
Unit193In what way?16:16
ThePendulumlinuxjones: The media player?16:17
Unit193A few ways, depends on what you want to do.16:19
ThePendulumWhat prevents you from running it?16:20
linuxjonesnothing, i have another xubuntu install on a pc thats connected to my tv, and i would like to be able to play movies on it either with ssh or some net command16:21
Unit193linuxjones: Alright, you can either use nvlc (better option for remote control), or DISPLAY=:0 vlc16:23
Unit193Both you can put the filename after.16:23
Adriannomhi.  i've installed compiz but even though i've updated /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-session.xml to use compiz it just doesn't.  any ideas where i can go from here?16:30
Adriannomi'm on 11.1016:31
Unit193compiz --replace is generally the way to do it.16:34
AdriannomUnit193, that would load the wm, then replace the wm.  i want to load the correct wm initially.  anyway, when i try compiz --replace with xfce4 selected as the window manager it says that the window manager is already loaded and crashes16:36
Unit193After you would have done that, you'd have checked "Save Session" when logging out.16:37
Unit193But otherwise, dunno as I've never used it.16:39
Adriannomsave session would load compiz --replace on login right?16:40
Adriannomif so compiz --replace isn't working for me :(16:40
Adriannomit did before i changed the window decorator in compiz settings to xfce416:41
Adriannombut now it complains that the wm is already loaded16:41
Adriannomno help on here, #ubuntu, #xfce or #compiz.  any other channels i could try?17:12
Marzatacompiz? what for?17:14
Adriannomwhy did i join the channel or why am i trying to use compiz?17:15
Adriannomprimarily i need the zoom feature.  the other stuff would be nice too, but not entirely necessary i guess17:16
Marzataah so17:16
Adriannomah so indeed17:18
mongyI use it without problems.  I added compiz --replace ccp to startup applications,17:48

leo-unglaub1hi, is there a way to have tabs in thunar?21:30
leo-unglaub1okay :) i guess i am not the first one asking this *g*21:31
mongyI don't see why they are against the 'option' of it.21:33
leo-unglaub1TheSheep: i see, thanks!21:34
mongydoes pcmanfm do tabs? I think I remember it does21:34
leo-unglaub1mongy: in the forum it sounds there is a long discussion about it, so i don't want to troll around there. i accept the developers desicion and simply clone the git repos and patch it in my self21:36
leo-unglaub1thanks for the quick answers21:36
TheSheepleo-unglaub1: or you could use a different file manager, like pc-man21:37
leo-unglaub1TheSheep: i am starting to really like the thunar renaming tools, it's faster than pyRename21:38
knomeleo-unglaub1, basically tabs would clutter the interface :)21:39
mongyonly if you switched it on21:39
knomeif it needed on/off switch, that would clutter the configuration options mroe21:40
mongythat's what I'm saying, why not just give the option.  not that I use them/care21:40
leo-unglaub1i am with mongy with this. if i don't open a new tab, i don't have the interface problem21:40
mongymm  ok21:40
leo-unglaub1and with tabs i thing putting them below the top seperator would work21:41
mongyI guess if it's that big a deal for someone they can use another fm21:41
knomewell, i do disagree/stand with the xfce devs21:41
TheSheepmore importantly, tabs would change how you use thunar21:41
TheSheepand thunar was designed to be used in specific way21:41
TheSheepwhich is quite efficinet, by the way, once you get used to it21:41
TheSheepand as leo-unglaub1 noted, this is not a topic for this channel21:42
Sysiyeah, great to have own way, if you want different you can use one of many other FMs21:42
knomeyup. welcome to #xubuntu-offtopic  :)21:42
leo-unglaub1please don't get me wrong...i am new to xfce, i am just trying a little bit :)21:42
