starnHello, i am wondering if it's possible to unplug an internal hard drive after telling linux to unmount it.. than pluging another one in and tell linux to mount it kinda like with external..  reason i ask is i only have one cord for data.. and it has two power cords for them and they're both powered just one has no data cord..03:15
NyLesok, i have a problem with ubuntu not recognizing my sound card (aplay -l) so i tried linuxmint9, they have the same issue.. after clicking the volume icont, i received a prompt saying; GStreamer was unable to detect any sound devices. Some sound system specific GStremer packages maybe missing. It may also be a permissions problem. so can anyone tell me how will i do that permission thing with ubuntu?03:17

uofm49426small hardware question xubuntu07:39
uofm49426tv and nvidia driving me crazy07:39
uofm49426is ati a little better in his aspect07:41
uofm49426is ati a little better in this aspect07:41
uofm49426i can only use 1280x720 or 1080p07:42
uofm49426over hdmi07:43
Sysinew atis can be huge pain, nvidia should work nicely when you use driver from "Additional drivers" and nvidia's own settings07:43
Sysiit's possible that your TV only supports those resolutions07:43
uofm49426using vga i can use more07:44
Sysithose are hd-ready and fullhd standards07:46
uofm49426but at 1080p it to small from were im sitting and 1280x 720 is to big sweet spot is around 1440 by 90007:46
uofm49426but the linux verson i cant get there windows i can07:47
uofm49426i was reading about a edid bug with nvidia07:49
Sysidriver bug totally is possible, you could maybe work around that problem by creating xorg.conf07:51
uofm49426scaling dont even work in the driver07:58
uofm49426im may need to just say o well and use vga07:59
uofm49426the only thing with that i vga mode the tv can keep up with the resolution changes and i have to turn tv on and off to refress it or ill have a half inch black line at the bottem and panel will be hidden08:03
arezjust installed xubuntu...08:24

arezalso, my frickin keymap is screwed up...08:27
TheNocturnalistso i just installed xubuntu oneiric, i am attempting to use jockey to install the nvidia driver.... but it's been going for quite a while, i cannot tell whether or not it is doing anything... any suggestions?10:08
TheNocturnalistnevermind, i killed it. i believe my ralink wireless adapter is not working well, for some freaking reason.10:13
ronsonolIs jockey what comes up on Settings > Additional Drivers?10:14
ronsonolnevermind, just answered my question running it while watching top.  It is.10:17
Os_Maleushello together!10:56
Os_Maleus have a Nexus i9250 and running xubuntu with xfce on my PC. until now, I didn't manage to find out how to connect the both over the USB-cable. does anybody know how it is possible to mount it? it is listed under lsusb. but that was it. no icon on the desktop available.10:56
Starnhey, i recently got a new computer from a friend and i am kinda wondering if wintv card can be used in ubuntu/xubuntu..10:58
well_laid_lawnStarn: I use one with me-tv11:04
Starnwhat's that?11:04
well_laid_lawn!info me-tv11:04
ubottume-tv (source: me-tv): Me TV, it's TV for me computer. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.3.6-1 (oneiric), package size 507 kB, installed size 1860 kB11:04
well_laid_lawnit is a live tv viewer with an epg guide and scheduled recordings11:05
well_laid_lawn+ other stuff11:05
Starnalright i shall check it out sounds amazing! i don't even know what to use on windows lol but windows just finished updating so i am gonna setup bootmanger to allow me to load xubuntu.. my issue is it's been a long time since i've done that and i don't fully remember how to do so in easyBCD.11:06
jadoeI have a strange problem with with dead keys: I set the keyboard layout to "German eliminate dead keys" in the xfce settings. Works like it is supposed to, at first. Pressing ^ brings ^. I use a KVM Switch. When I switch to the other PC and back, pressing ^ brings deadcircumflex instead of ^. What is going on?11:06
Starnwell_laid_lawn: i shall be right back. i'm rebooting. probably take a bit.11:08
well_laid_lawnjadoe: when you switch the kvm over a new keyboard is getting recognised would be my guess11:10
well_laid_lawnif I did that sort of thing regularly I would put a shortcut in the panel to switch keyboard types11:11
starnok.. well_laid_lawn what was the name again? me-tv?11:13

starnoh i have a random question.. how come ubuntu/xubuntu and like systems can run off of any machine even if it is not the same hardware it was installed on?11:15
well_laid_lawnthere's no one trying to make money off it so you can do what you like with it11:15
well_laid_lawnit's free11:16
starnlike i installed it on an decently fast usb hard drive and it's able to boot up on any machine even though it's not been installed on it..11:16
starnfree= better haha11:16
starnalso is it true that 32bit doesnt display 4gb but still uses?11:16
well_laid_lawnafaik it only uses what it sees and reports11:17
starndang i need to update to 64bit than.. ok.. well_laid_lawn does any antana work with this tvcard? kinda like how any works with my lil box to convert digital to analog?11:18
well_laid_lawnI've used both analog and digital antennas to get free to air tv with mine11:19
well_laid_lawnif the antenna can find the digital stations me-tv will11:20
starnalright i shall be right back grabing my old antana that i don't use.. if it works it's being used haha11:20
starnholy crap the tv thingy startled me..... well it works!11:29
starnumm... well_laid_lawn i feel really stupid.. but how do i change channels?11:33
starnpersonally not to thrilled with some home improvment show.11:33
well_laid_lawnthe channels should be on the left side of the epg11:34
starni don't see it.11:36
well_laid_lawnhave you moved the epg to see what's on later?11:36
starnno?? i don't even know what epg is.11:37
well_laid_lawnelctronic program guide11:38
starni see record button vol epg event search? sheduled recordings fullscreen  name of show and stations... than two arrows <-  and two arrows ->   than top i see file view video audio help11:38
well_laid_lawnthis is a shot from the net - http://www.mpeg4ireland.com/img/metv.jpg - channels on the left11:40
starnwhaaaaa i don't have that!11:41
well_laid_lawnyou can toggle seeing the epg from the menu11:42
starndoesn't show what you had11:42
well_laid_lawnany buttons with station names?11:43
well_laid_lawnif you have live tv and showing the epg selected from the menu you should have at least one station showing in the epg11:44
well_laid_lawnshould is relative tho11:44
starnyeah.. it's live tv.. checked with tv..11:44
starni'm gonna rescan the channels.11:45
starnit finds six channels... but i can't seem to switch to them...11:48
starndoes it matter i am in USA and we only have digital?11:48
well_laid_lawnit doesn't do cable afaik but I could be wrong11:50
starnwe don't have cable.11:50
well_laid_lawnbut if it finds six channels there should be six in the epg11:50
starnbut all our signals here are digital forced by the government.11:50

starnhmm.. how do i make me tv 2.0.1 scan for channels... it's not letting me do so says something about command line scan is a good way to generate channels.conf12:34
starncan someone tell well_laid_lawn when he gets back i fixed it?12:51
bbakalisis there a way to safely remove gnome desktop and all of its dependencies without affecting my xubuntu? it was installed through updates and i want to uninstall it.14:19
mongybbakalis: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purexfce14:24
mongybest check what its removing in case you want any of it.14:24
bbakalisyes but as i can see it removes stuff necessary for xubuntu. am i  wrong?14:34
mongynever used that personally.14:49
mongytest it in a vm before?14:49
bbakalisno but i guess this is what i have to do...14:49
bbakalisthanks a lot14:49
mongycould install fresh xubuntu but keep your home folder and settings.14:50
mongyI have a spare vm I will try that purexfce for giggles.  If it gets hosed I will drop pschocat a line15:00
mongyok, so I just did that command on a pure xubuntu already system, and the only things that are gonna be removed are gvfs-backends libarchive1 libcdio-cdda0 libcdio-paranoia0 libcdio1015:04
mongyso none of those things getting removed are needed by the looks of it15:05
starnhello, i need assistance with fixing my sound.. i just got a new machine.. and when i plug my headphones sound still comes from the speakers.15:24
mongy`oppsite for me, it stops playing speakers and nothing comes out of headphones15:31
mongyi may boot into 12.04 in a while to tst15:32
starnyeah it worked just fine on old machine.. not how i wanted but it worked.. i wanted it to play music through my speakers and VoIP on my headphones.. still want to do this.. but first i need to fix sound coming out of both like all audio does.. and i didn't change any settings.15:32
starnmongy: do you use realtek?? if so please let me know how it goes for you.15:32
mongyudio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 06)15:36
mongyAudio device: ATI Technologies Inc RV710/73015:36
mongyonly 1 I use is the intel, the ati is the hdmi port15:37
mongyActually... I just saw in pavucontrol the options to choose headphones15:37
mongylemme test15:37
starnugh i forgot how to check what sound i got..15:39
mongylspci - grep Audio15:40
mongytry pulseaudio control and in output devices, select analogue headphones15:40
mongyor whatever is there.15:40
mongyjust tried 12.04, and although sound options were a lot nicer and had a few extras, and even though pluggin into headphoens automatically set output to headphones, nothing actually came out of them :(16:10
mongysadly, sound is still a showstopper on linux for people.16:11
mongyif I had some hdmi headphones I would test..16:11

bodomHi there! Does anybody knows whether there is an integrated VNC in xubuntu?20:12
mongybodom: unless I removed it when I was drunk, no there is not.20:25
bodomso, i'm looking for away to remotely access my running local xfce session20:29
mongyI think you can just install vino (the vnc in regular ubuntu)20:31
mongythere is also other vnc server like x11vnc and tightvnc, also chrome remote desktop is a handy extension that works rather well.20:32
bodommongy: didn't knew vino can handle other windows managersthan gnome, i'll use it then. Ty20:34
mongybodom: umm, I never tried it tbh20:35
mongythere is xrdp but I never got it to work21:26
ronsonolIs there a config to define unmounted hd partitions as not removable devices (so they don't show up on the desktop, but thumbdrives & cds do)?21:30
GridCubeadd them to fstab ronsonol21:34
ubottuThe /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions21:34
