god-zotacwhat is the binary that runs the "crash report" in the indicator plugin?  i want to get rid of it permanently, it is very annoying to me, and i usually am well aware of a crash without the need for a visual notification :)03:57
god-zotacand how do i set up the keychain to automatically unlock/authenticate when loading my desktop instead of prompting for a password when i open my web browser the first time during the session? i know i can remove the keychain password completely, but that's not practical to me03:58
b__Anyone on irc?05:37
b__I could use some help05:39
brandonalright I have used linux for over 4 years close to 5 and have moved to xubuntu after ubuntu switched to unity and gnome depreciated version 2. However I have had my computer go completely unresponisive where I had to pull the power chord to reboot. And by unresponsive ctrl+alt+f1 would not take me to a command line... This is the third time today what is going on06:07
b__Did you try booting from a cd, to try to pull some logs?06:11
b__<---- Noob btw06:12
b__but it's still a thought06:12
b__On my first 3 installs I borked some things up bad, and had to boot from a disc to fix them06:12
brandonwell I can still reboot into the system but the frequent crashing is driving me crazy06:15
b__I have you checked logs?06:16
b__Have you^06:16
b__Does it only crash while you're using it, or while it's sleeping?06:17
b__brandon, I have a question for you....06:17
b__do you have a bt dongle?06:18
b__blue tooth06:18
brandonno, its built in blue tooth06:22
brandonBut I use BT dongles on my other computers but they all run gnome 206:22
b__ I have connected a bluetooth devise via blueman, and enabled pulseaudio plugin, in the sound settings I can see the bt input and the volume level changing, but can hear no sound. I checked puvu control, and the alsa mixer, nothing is muted. I ran a sound record, which actually recorded the audio I could not hear06:27
brandona bluetooth headset?06:30
brandonI have only used bluetooth for file transfers sorry06:30
b__My phone06:30
b__I got obex to work just fine06:31
brandonwell you can access the files on your phone06:31
b__but cannot get the music to stream via bluetooth06:31
brandonbut thats all I have done in the past06:31
brandonif there not encrypted06:31
b__I'm trying to set up so my wife won't blow the pc speakers on my windows machine.....06:31
b__My xubuntu is hooked up to my stereo06:32
b__and my big screen06:32
brandonah I see06:32
b__in the living room06:32
b__the pc is in the bedroom.. so she turns it up allllllll the way06:32
brandonI know for a fact that you can limit users to a certin volume06:32
b__but If I could set it up so she only had to toggle bt06:32
b__then she could use the big speakers wirelessly06:33
b__I love the concept, and I'm so close!06:33
brandonwell Im saying I know that you can set the computer not to go above a certing level for her account06:33
brandonsrry certain06:34
brandonthese crashes are a pain when im trying to download 27,000 pictures ...06:36
brandonwell good luck let me know if there is something else I could help you with06:47

jadoewhat's the difference between notification area and indicator applet?12:33
mongyradiotray ?12:34
Sysisome apps only work with indicator-applet and some with notification area12:35
TheSheepindicator applet is a retarded and broken idea at remarking the notification area, in short12:36
TheSheepin an attempt to make the notification area work like on mac12:37
ravenTheSheep how to adjust it at least by cmd?12:43
TheSheepraven: I don't understand12:47
ravenTheSheep performance/ondemand/....12:48
mongyit should be ondemand automatically12:49
ravenmongy yes but i need to adjust to powersafe and performance too12:52
mongyondemand is already good for that.. it will bump up when needed12:53
ravenmongy i need powersafe manually!!12:58

hobgoblinraven: not remembering - hang on I'll go boot it up13:11
ravenhobgoblin does not work anyway - perhaps no root?13:12
hobgoblinworks here - which is not much help - I didn't do anything odd with it - just started it from the system menu13:13
hobgoblinsits in the notification area I think13:13
hobgoblinshouldn't need root afaik - try it from a terminal and see if there are any errors - /usr/bin/jupiter-run13:17
hobgoblinand when you say it does not work - what exactly do you mean? it runs but doesn't do anything or doesn't even run13:18
ravendoes not change freq13:19
ravenfrom cmd it works right!13:19
hobgoblinthere were reports of reboot needed sometimes looking at forum13:20

dvanstonewell chrome v chromuim16:30
mongyugh, yeah the chrome stable is newer than my chromium dev16:32
mongyI best kill off the dev ppa if they aren't updating it quick enough16:33
dvanstonethe new chromes first page wants you to sign in and has users (under preferences > Personal Stuff) which I believe is where that icon comes from16:33
mongyyeah the new users feaure.  never use dit16:34
dvanstonewell in this version you can't avoid it16:34
mongyit's in mine, but I'm the only user16:35
mongyso with only 1 user that icon is up there?16:35
mongyheh, the daily ppa was last updated 6 weeks ago16:35
dvanstoneno If you try to delete the users you end up creating more than one16:36
mongythink I'll go with the chrome dev direct from google then16:36
dvanstoneand yes the icon goes away if you only have one16:37
dvanstonebut the sign into chrome is the launch page16:38
dvanstoneobviously different16:45

foobartHi there. This isn't really Xubuntu-specific, but I don't know a better place to ask. I want to set up whole disk encryption. I use 3 hard drives, one for the OS, two for data. On windows I use TrueCrypt. It can automount disks that use the same password as the system partition, you only have to enter your password once, pre boot. Is there a way to set something like that up on Xubuntu?18:57
dvanstonenvidia is well supported imo18:58
dvanstonehave you tried searching the software center18:59
mongyI can play a html5 webgl game at relative high frames, but youtube vids just aint quite there yet18:59
mongysoftware centre? for what?18:59
foobartFor what? TrueCrypt? It works only that way on windows?19:00
dvanstonewhat does truecrypt or what ever it is called do19:01
mongyI guess you'd add the other drives to fstab, so they'd mount after your main / mounted19:01
dvanstonewell the installer should help w/ that or have that option19:02
dvanstonefoobart man fstab in a terminal19:04
dvanstoneohh games chess connect 4 solitaire19:09
dvanstonehow many displays does your cards support19:11
mongyits a laptop19:16
mongyI have vga and hdmi interfaces as well.  dont use them tho19:16
mongynot sure what you mean otherwise.19:16
dvanstoneI feel rather confined when I have less than three screens19:21
mongyoh.  nah, just my 1080 is enough for me.  plenty of workspaces tho19:22
mongycant believe ive only just removed indicator-messages menu19:24
mongyonly think used by it is pidgin and I hardly use that nor do I need to set status from there.19:25
hahnany one know of a good program that can be used to view or fix a pdf that's corrupted?19:26
dvanstoneoops I spelled that wrong19:27
hahnthats not free though, is it?19:27
dvanstonewhere did you get the corrupted pdf19:28
hahna hidden service19:29
dvanstonegenerally it has to do with what created the file19:29
hahnbut it's currently under a DDoS attack19:29
hahni opend the file and started reading it fine while it was still loading(it's 1000+ pages)19:30
hahnthen when it loaded ~900 pages it stopped and now i cant open it again19:30
hahni don't really care about the last 10% of the pdf though19:31
dvanstonewhat viewer are you using to read the file (how are you getting the corruption warning)19:33
hahnthe first time i was using "document viewer 2.30.3"(in xubuntu) then i tried foxit19:35
hahndocument viewer says "The document contains no pages"19:36
hahnbut i know it does, and it's ~13 megabytes19:36
dvanstoneso you changed viewer mid stream19:36
hahnonce i saw it failed to open completely i tried it again on foxit19:37
dvanstonebut you said 90 percent of it was displayed19:38
hahnyeah, then the pages disappeared that that message poped up19:38
hahnreally weird, but that's what happened19:38
dvanstonewell you could always send it to a printer19:39
hahnwhat do you mean?19:39
hahnlike give it to a shop and see if they can fix it?19:46

holsteind3eniz_laptop: *should* be the same21:19
d3eniz_laptopholstein: thanks21:20
Unit193It generally ends up not being quite the same.21:21
Unit193But holstein is right.21:22
holsteinyeah, usually something in there.. i could propose a hardware case (maybe) that could be slower one way or the other21:23
holsteini wouldnt lose any sleep over it either way though21:23
justakillhey if i want skype should i download the ubuntu version?21:27
justakillfor xubuntu21:27
holsteinjustakill: yup... the .deb (32 or 64bit, whichever you have)21:28
justakillcool thanks21:28
Unit193Should be in the extra repos.21:28

god-zotachow do i manage the keyring in xubuntu?  i am getting errors when i try to open the command from Menu > Other > Keyring Access22:33
god-zotacmongy:: thanks, but seahorse isn't showing the password that i need to modify.. here is what the issue is.  When I log in to the desktop everytime it is prompting saying "The keyring service was not unlocked during login. Please enter your keyring password"  something to that extent22:37
god-zotacmongy:: i have had the issue before with ubuntu based distros, and i have just had to open the keyring and delete the password for the default keyring. but seahorse is only showing my website stored data22:37
god-zotacmongy:: it appears to have stopped that now heh22:41
mongyhave you set a different passphrase for keyrings than your login password?22:41
god-zotaci hadn't done anything to any keyring related apps22:42
mongynot had any keyring issues with my install and wifi etc...22:51
mongyapart from setting the keyring pass to blank, not sure what else to suggest22:51
god-zotaci can't even get to anything to change the keyring to blank though22:52
god-zotacthe keyring application isn't opening22:52
god-zotac/usr/lib/gnome-keyring/gnome-keyring-prompt-3    doesn't work for me22:53
dvanstonegod-zotac; have you attempted with passwords you do know22:56
god-zotacdvanstone:: it unlocks when i put my password in22:57
god-zotaci was just wanting to get rid of the prompt everytime i login to my desktop22:57
god-zotacbecause it is annoying having to put the password in once to login, and then again to unlock the keychain22:57
god-zotacmongy:: dvanstone this:  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17739212/Pictures/Screenshots/keyring-everytime-login.png23:07
god-zotaclet me try this. 1 sec brb23:10
