ubottuNope: Up through Ubuntu 11.10, administrator privileges using sudo was granted to the "admin" Unix group.  In Ubuntu 12.04, privileges are granted to the "sudo" group, for consistency with upstream and Debian.  For compatibility, the "admin" group will continue to have access in 12.04.00:01

xubuntu916When I download the desktop 32 bit version of xubuntu 12.04 on my friends laptop and run it through uTorrent it keeps coming out as a zip file.00:24
xubuntu916isn't it meant to be an iso00:24
knomein a way, iso files are archives00:24
xubuntu916I tried burning a data  disk with it but it only burned one file which was no use when I tried to reboot my own laptop.00:26
Unit193Yeah, you have to burn it differently, "DiskImage" sometimes.00:26
xubuntu916Is "diskimage" a program I'll need to download to finish this off then?00:27
ubottuCD/DVD burning software: k3b (KDE), brasero (GNOME), gnomebaker, xcdroast, wodim (command-line) | To burn ISO files, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto00:30
xubuntu916thanks ubotto, but the problem I'm having is that the file is coming out as a zip file and not an ISO file. And I can't find anything on the site about burning a zip file to a cd00:33
xwalkAre there any man pages on properly writing cron jobs files?00:34

cellardoorHi all, I need some help with my dual monitor setup. Googling hasn't helped. In Gnome, my dual display works fine, the menu-bar and 'primary' screen is my big one to the right, and not the smaller one to the left. So far everything I have tried in XFCE hasn't moved the Menu bar etc from the left screen to the right. It thinks the left screen is the main screen. If I invert their position in nvidia-settings (tell it that the small screen is12:10
cellardoor to12:10
cellardoor<cellardoor>  the right of the big screen, when it's really on the left) then the menu-bar appears correctly placed on the big screen. Can I fix this? Or is the XFCE-menu bar always left-justified or something?12:10
knomecellardoor, you in 12.0412:12
knomecellardoor, ?12:12
laitecellardoor: in xfce settings editor (from menu) there are displays, try changin option 'primary' from there12:12

drcDo I read http://xubuntu.org/news/12-04-release/ correctly?  12.04 32 bit is non-pae but 12.10 (and beyond) 32 bit will be pae?17:02
holstein"The i386 images use a non-PAE kernel. The non-PAE kernel will not be available in future Xubuntu releases." does imply that17:03
holsteini was under the impression the main ubuntu was shipping with PAE by default now17:04
drcholstein: I was 90% sure that's what it said, but there was just something about the phrasing that made me wonder :)17:04
xubuntu198Hi everyone!I installed xubuntu using the Wubi utility(I didn't change any settings;I have a XP with SP 2).I restart the PC and it boots directly in XP.Any ideas?17:04
holsteinxubuntu198: if you see it listed in the windows boot loader, just select it17:05
holsteinit = xubuntu/ubuntu17:05
martinphonewhat libraries or packages do I need to play mpc files with rhythmbox?17:05
martinphoneparole plays em17:05
xubuntu198It don't show any windows boot loader17:05
Artemis3wubi i think creates an icon to launch it17:06
holsteinxubuntu198: you have a windows bootloader.. i would try clicking the .exe again.. if you put the iso in the same directory, it will be used instead of going and downloading the iso17:06
Artemis3look in your windows desktop for the icon17:06
xubuntu198I tired that a moment later it don't work17:07
holsteinmartinphone: i usually just install the *-restricted-extras metapackage.. i use VLC though17:08
holsteinxubuntu198: what didnt work? and how did it not work?17:08
xubuntu198anyway tnx17:08
holsteinxubuntu198: i would get the wubi .exe file, put it in a directory with the LIVE CD iso... click on it and report errors17:08
martinphoneholstein, for all ku, xu, lu and ubuntu?17:08
holsteinmartinphone: its the same codecs AFAIK..17:09
Artemis3just install the one you need, xubuntu-restricted-extras would be correct for this channel17:09
martinphoneholstein, so with just one it should be enough...17:09
holsteinmartinphone: i would expect what plays in parole to play in rhythymbox17:09

ubuntu_I have the text of error but is there anyone else whit that problem18:20
crondubuntu_, I would check your ISO or your burn first.18:21
genii-aroundubuntu_: Did you verify the md5 of the cd image before you made the cd?18:21
ubottuTo verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows18:21
ubuntu_genii-around, I didnt understand how to check18:24
ubuntu_oohhh on that site is written18:25
ubuntu_genii-around, when I write: md5sum "myisofile", nothing happens18:28
genii-aroundubuntu_: Where it has "myisofile" you put instead the path and name of the actual iso file you downloaded, like xubuntu-12.04-desktop-i386.iso  or so on18:30
ubuntu_I must wait a little18:31
ubuntu_it has done18:31

milen8204genii-around, 52fddd81e75bb421a5435a42ca9ec6df18:33
milen8204my iso is ok18:34
milen8204i am ubuntu_18:34

milen8204I had used Xfburn18:38
milen8204That error-massage was written: The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try to install again18:41
milen8204I am trying to check cd whit md5sum18:54
mongyif yo uare having trouble with the live installer then maybe try the alternate 'safe' version.18:55
milen8204how to do that18:56
mongydownload the alternate iso18:56
milen8204the live CD runs well but I cant install on my PC18:56
milen8204mongy, could you send me a link pleae18:56
mongydid the md5 check come back ok?18:58
mongydid you boot directly to the installer or have you tried running the live session and running the installer from there?18:58
milen8204to iso yes18:58
milen8204 52fddd81e75bb421a5435a42ca9ec6df18:59

xubuntu777I just installed xubuntu on an asus zenbook, i was wondering if the sleep/hibernate issue and touchpad sensitivity could be improved by upgrading to the 3.3 kernel.19:00
milen8204after all settings for install and start coping files19:00
crondxubuntu777, I have seen a fix for those issues somewhere online, have you googled it?19:02
milen8204then an massage appears The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try to install again19:02
xubuntu777I read about them on the ubuntu wiki, but was just curious if a kernel upgrade might take care of it.19:03
mongyI know the installer has some bugs, as I found out while creating an encrypted home during install..  if you are comfortable with it, use the (no point n click dos like) alternate installer.19:04
crondmongy, for lvm + dm_crypt you always have to use the alternate installer19:04
crondor did you mean just encrypted homedir?19:05
milen8204mongy, how to use alternative installer ?19:05
NewUserHi people!19:06
mongycrond, as I said, encrypted home only.  I didnt want a fully encrypted drive, but it tried to make my swap encrypted and fubarred it giving me no swap, so  I had to format the swap partition again and correct fstab for a normal swap entry.19:06
mongymilen8204,  alternate iso.19:07
crondmongy, ahh. ok!19:07
mongymilen8204, try it in vmware/virtualbox first so you can get familiar with it, it's not hard to use.19:07
milen8204i do not understand, I should download alternate iso?19:07
NewUserMay be some one try instal Xubuntu on laptop with Windows. I just few moment ago install Xubuntu on my laptop from USB stick. But if i take out it automaticaly loads Windows. How do i make to choose which one OS i want to load19:08

mongymilen8204,   http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/releases/precise/release/xubuntu-12.04-alternate-i386.iso19:09
