leo-unglaubwitch is the best drop down terminal for xubuntu with supports multipe desktops?02:50
bazhangsuch as guake? tilda and the like?02:55
leo-unglaubbazhang: yes, like them...but tilda has limited support for multiple screens02:58
leo-unglaubi have 3 screens here...and tilda is every time on the left one02:58
leo-unglaubbut i need i on the middle one02:58
bazhanghttp://www.ubunturoot.com/2010/08/drop-down-terminal-for-ubuntu.html   I see only the three here03:00
leo-unglaubbazhang: okay, so it's not just me :)03:01
bazhangAlso one good feature of Tilda is that you can disable showing on all workplaces.03:01
bazhang^ that's from the link03:02
leo-unglaubhmmm, okay03:03
leo-unglaubi will try both03:03
leo-unglaubmaybe there was an update03:03
leo-unglaubbazhang: thanks !03:04
bazhanghope that helps, never used them, just the kde one yakuake (which you wouldn't want as xubuntu is gtk)03:05
leo-unglaubhehe, yakuake is the only one i know witch supports multipe monitors *g*03:06
leo-unglaubbud sadly kde only03:06
leo-unglaubwell, i can live with guake....i am still soo happy about xfce....after one year of unity...believe me....i am the happiest person in the world to habe a desktop without all those fancy things :)03:09
bazhangwonder if HUD will have a dropdown03:28
jandruskHUD is an updated feature in that Unity garbage.03:49
ubottuUbuntu 12.04 LTS will include the first step in a major new approach to application interfaces, the Head-Up Display, or HUD, which will ultimately replace menus in Unity applications. See http://ubottu.com/y/hud for the background on this and discuss it in #ubuntu+1 or #ubuntu-offtopic04:03

kiopnuioWhere should bugs be filed against xubuntu?05:22
kiopnuioI don't understand why oneconf is installed and I don't see how to remove it without hacking the dependency chain05:23
Bham-BobAfter running the updater my Xubuntu will not boot, all I get is a >grub prompt05:27
holsteinBham-Bob: i would try an older kernel if you see one05:42
Bham-BobI don't get the boot menu it just drops straight to the grub> prompt05:46
Bham-BobI have just booted from a live CD and am trying to figure out how to restore grub05:46
Bham-Bobanyone know how to restore or install grub from a live CD?05:53

EtherDenhi everyone! %)10:00
GhrimHey, i'm using the power management tool, and when the screen locks it uses something really really ugly. Is there anything I can do to change this?10:01
EtherDeni don't know, sorry %)10:02
EtherDenmay be video driver not work correct, in my opinion10:04
GhrimNo, it's just the default thing, I think it's called xscreensaver?10:04
EtherDenpress ctr+alt+backspace and restart lightdm, for example10:08
Myrttiwell that doesn't replace the screensaver10:09
mongyif you mean the picture of the burning monitor, yeah it's not very flash10:10
mongyI set mine to turn the monitor off when it locks10:10
mongythe image is in /usr/share/pixmaps10:13
EtherDenso... i completed setup xubuntu on my mac, i need restart, see you later %)10:13
GhrimI've found something called 'slock' which just goes black, theres no prompt or anything, you just type in your password and hit enter. Is there any way of using this with the power management tool?10:19
baizonis this a bug?12:19
baizonwhen i try to install alacarte, i have to install 137 other dependencies12:19

mongyLike, I wasn't able to edit the properties of an item12:28

knomebaizon, yes, it's a bug :P12:28

knomewell, you can use --no-install-recommends for now and most things in alacarte should work12:30
baizonthe most important thing doesnt work12:30
baizonin 12.0412:31
baizonbut not in 11.1012:31
baizoni cant edit the "web browser" entry12:32
baizonor add some entrys12:32
baizonbut no problem12:32
baizoni will wait until 12.04 :)12:33
knomethe web browser is an exo launcher12:33
baizoni know12:33
baizonbut last time i tryd to edit this entrys my whole menu was broken12:33
knomethat's probably because OnlyShowIn=XFCE doesn't work in alacarte on 11.10 either12:34
baizonyep :)12:35

baizonfelicia: what cable do you use?17:12
baizonwhat resolution do you need?17:13
felicia1920 prefferably, it's a 21" monitor17:13
feliciathe point is, the motherboard has an internal 64MB video card, and the ATI was added afterward. should i try to remove it and stay on the onboard card???17:14
baizonyou can test it17:16
feliciabaizon, still no change.17:23
feliciaquestion: in bios i have the settings: primary graphics card - PCI, PCIE VGA, integrated vga17:24
feliciawhich one should i choose?17:25
jesusrmxhello, I cannot apply updates, the update manager insist there is an update available, trying to install fails because is from a "no authenticated source" (my translation from spanish), if I uncheck the package (libnspr4-0d) it anyways fails with the same result, how do I either force the install or force forget such package?. thanks17:26
metasansanafelicia: PCIE would be the add in card17:26
feliciametasansana, which doesn't work either17:27
jmcantrellanyone having trouble with mouse clicks with the latest updates? it's driving me bonkers17:27
felicianow i am on the integrated card17:27
feliciashould i reinstall with the ATI removed completely?17:28
jesusrmxjmcantrell, me. Sometimes I have to click 3 or four times so it works, I thought it was the mouse hardware problem ...17:32

metsys23I am with a big problem and you probably can help me: my computer gets to hot when i am using xubuntu, heats up even more than when using windows, any sugestion to fix it?17:54
jesusrmxjmcantrell, no, just standard support17:55
metsys23is there a software that can help me with it?17:55
leo-unglaubmetsys23: i guess that your fans are controled by the os himself and windows had some divers for that17:57
leo-unglaubmetsys23: yo should go into the bios and enable the automatic fan powering17:57
leo-unglaubso you don't have to worry about it17:57
ThePendulumHow do I run a certain command on start-up?17:59
ThePendulumOr, is there another way to configure & maintain a dualscreen setup besides "xrandr --output DFP3 --left-of DFP4"?17:59
metsys23leo-unglaub, automatic fan powering? i never heard about it. i will try it, thanks!17:59
metsys23i will try it rigth now, brb17:59
leo-unglaubmetsys23: or maybe auto fan control18:00
metsys23leo-unglaub, back... There is an option in my bios named Fan always on and i have ir enabled so it should be right18:04
leo-unglaubmetsys23: another way would be with lm_sensors18:05
leo-unglaubbut sady i only have a good gernam toturial18:05
leo-unglaubmetsys23: what model is your computer?18:06
metsys23compaq presario cq6018:07
metsys23it always get hotter really fast, is a model issue18:07
ThePendulumThat's why I prefer to build my own systems, hehe18:07
metsys23but in windwos it auto-slowdown when it is too hot18:08
metsys23and in linux it just poweroff :(18:08
leo-unglaubmetsys23: but the fans are running all the time?18:08
leo-unglaubmaybe there is to much dust in it?18:08
ThePendulummetsys23: Do you have room for more fans? Perhaps replace some fans with better ones?18:08
leo-unglaubhave you tryed cleanin it?18:08
ThePendulumAnd indeed, make sure it isn't clogged with dust18:09
leo-unglaubmetsys23: in xfce4-goodies there are some scripts witrh allow you to monitor the temp in your computer and take some actions if the temp is rising to fast18:10
metsys23yes, it can be a problem, i never open this computer, is a laptop with about 4 years18:11
metsys23probably it is clogged with dust... the fans are working by the moment i start it until i shutdown it :)18:11
leo-unglaubmetsys23: than the first thing is cleaning it18:12
ThePendulumOh it's a laptop18:12
leo-unglaubmetsys23: that can bring you the releave you needet with the temp probem18:12

ThePendulumBe careful, laptops are a bitch to open up and put together again18:15
metsys23a will see some videos about how to open it :)18:15
metsys23ThePendulum, thats what i am afraid :(18:15
leo-unglaubmetsys23: well, the worst thing is that you have to buy a new laptop...with also fixes the heating problem *g*18:16

ubottuTo use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info21:07
Unit193PAE kernels are default for Pangolin.21:08

metsys23hum, never heard about pae... it transform OS in a 64bits system or simply allow it to regonize my 4gb ram?21:09
Unit193It's a 32bit helper, not trnasfer.21:09
