Zebso, i think i like the default ubuntu unity more than kubuntu01:18
Zebonce you get compiz config and tweak01:19
Zeb trying to make the transition to ubuntu... how can i migrate my outlook pst files from windows into Thunderbird?02:11
Zebcan't figure it out02:12
Zebi did sudo apt-get install readpst, and then readpst -r blah.pst, and it converted it, but it still wont open or import into thunderbird02:12
JoseeAntonioRZeb: Let me check out if I have anything over here :)02:13
holsteinZeb: i would install thuderbird on windows, when promted, import from outlook, then copy what is needed from windows's thunderbird02:13
Zebholstein, that crossed my mind02:13
holsteinZeb: it literally wont hurt to try it02:13
Zebholstein, i suppose its either import in a windows environment or import in a linux environment... any import process will still have to take place somewhere02:14
holsteini thin the windows one works still thats what i did when i left mail clients behind02:15
Zebi hate gmail02:15
Zebon the web02:15
Zebotherwise i'd just do web-based02:15
holsteini hate clients... i hate backing them up, and migrating and upgrading... syncing02:16
Zebif i install thunderbird on my windows boot, and import the pst to thunderbird... can i then just use the same thunderbird file from within my ubuntu boot?02:17
Zebthus having a synced client regardless of which OS i boot to?02:17
holsteinZeb: i wouldnt expect that to work02:17
holsteini just migrated to linux by that method02:17
Zebok well im gonna give it a whirl... back in a bit02:20
holsteinZeb: if you keep backups of that directory, you can try it02:21
holsteinin theory, you just trash the config in windows and linux and restore the one you are about to get02:21
Zebstill wont let me Import Everything02:36
Zebhave to do each one individually, and settings doesnt work02:36
Zebbut it looks like mail at least is chugging along02:36
holsteini dont think you'll find a better option02:36

WilsonBradleyHi, I was hoping to get some help with Annoying system crashes.  I am new to not well versed in troubleshooting Ubuntu (Yet..;-) For starters Im getting [System program problem detected] often. What log file do I look through for error? Will it say error in the log , using keyword find? Thanks03:37
asterismoi have a problem05:25
asterismodoes anybody uses xfce?05:25
JoseeAntonioRasterismo: Tell us the problem :)05:25
asterismothe directory menu applet05:25
asterismoworked well with thunar file manager05:26
asterismobut i changed it to nautilus05:26
asterismoas the default file manager05:26
asterismobut the directory menu opens nautilus always in home folder no matter what folder i select to open05:26
asterismoany ideas?05:27
JoseeAntonioRHmm, can you give me a second to check, please?05:28
asterismoyeah sure!05:28
JoseeAntonioRasterismo: Can't seem to find a common bug. The home folder opens every time you click on a folder, or it's a link?05:31
JoseeAntonioRasterismo: I'm sorry, but I have to leave now. One of my mates will help you.05:34
asterismook thanks anyway05:35
asterismothe thing is that menu directory allows you to browse folders and then open them, or open a terminal05:35
asterismowhen i browse a folder inside my home... and click open folder05:36
asterismonautilus (i set nautilus as default file manager in xubuntu) opens always in my home, not the folder i selected05:36
asterismoand that is making the whole applet useless05:36
asterismodoes anybody has any idea?05:37
asterismoi think i found the problem06:32
asterismothe problem is that i installed nautilus and it is not in the list of preferred applications06:32
asterismoin xfce settings menu06:33
asterismois that a bug?06:33
asterismowhy XFCE settings do not recognizes nautilus as another file manager other than Thunar?06:34
philipballewasterismo, you can probably configure that. did you google?06:34
asterismoyes but i cannot find nothing06:35
asterismoall howtos say06:35
asterismogo to preferred applications06:35
asterismoscroll down the list and select nautilus06:35
asterismoand i installed nautilus06:36
asterismobut it is not in the list06:36
asterismoi can write the command for nautilus (that is simply nautilus)06:36
asterismobut that makes directory menu plugin not to work06:36
philipballewdo it manually then I guess06:37
asterismomanually what06:38
philipballewset it as the prefered app06:39
asterismoyes, but the directory plugin does not work06:39
philipballewhum, well i have never run xfce,06:39

kcazeI'm running Ubuntu on a Macbook and it seems to me that the maximum brightness for my backlight is lower than that of the brightness in Mac OS X.10:28
kcazeI've searched and found that you can change the brightness by editing the brightness file in /sys/class/backlight/mbp_backlight10:29
kcazeand was wondering if there's any danger in setting the brightness to past the maximum brightness?10:29
