CommonwealthCan anyone tell me what a helper application is?04:03
xubuntu287Thought I'd mention that the 12.04 amd64 alternate cd seems to have a corrupt ATI driver package (ie I checked the md5 sum of the iso, and hit the failure twice on that package)04:15
Unit193Really? How did yu download?04:16
xubuntu287Direct from ubuntu mirror http04:17
xubuntu287Thought it was a bad download, but the md5 sums match04:17
xubuntu287I can try opening up the iso and looking for the package itself04:18
Unit193Alright, well you say the ISO md5 is good, but the package itself fails in the live/install? (To clearify)04:18
Unit193(I'd like to blame comcast, but.... ;) )04:19
xubuntu287ISO md5 is good04:19
xubuntu287unet boot in to usb, (two separate times)04:19
Unit193knome: Can you take a peek at that when you get back?  You said you have the disk.04:19
xubuntu287Install fails when installing packages, used the integrity checker and reports driver as bad04:19
xubuntu287(sorry reports a package that looked to be ati package as bad)04:20
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se
Unit193xubuntu287: Well, I'd almost say reporting a bug would be a good idea, but not sure exactly what agenst.04:20
Unit193(I personally can't check this one)04:20
xubuntu287After I get my machine back up and running I'll run the integrity check again and write down the package name04:22
xubuntu287though if someone else has a VM handy it'd be good to get another check on it04:22

Unit193Yep, and double checked from the mirror.04:28
xubuntu287ok I think the package was xserver-xorg-ati_6.14.99~git2011219.aacbd629-0ubuntu2_.deb04:31

xubuntu287(Having one of the supported install methods guaranteed to fail on all machines is really a pretty critical bug [not to mention embarassing])]04:41

recon69_lapbefore i go blind13:05
recon69_lapnever mind, found it. good to be able to see screen without squinting13:13
Adriannomhi.  just installed xubuntu 12.04 and after i suspend, the screen is very dark, even at the prompt to log back in.  changing brightness has some effect, but even full brightness is very dark.  any ideas what could be going on?13:19
Adriannomthe mouse pointer is actually the only thing that is at full brightness13:20
recon69_lapAdriannom: try right click the desktop and select desktop settings , some sliders in there13:21
Adriannomrecon69_lap, yup, that is how i tried to change the brightness.  it has some effect, but the darkness pervades all13:22
recon69_lapand you got the brightness slider applet ?13:23
Adriannomwhat's that?13:23
Adriannomthis is a fresh install.  do i need to install it?13:24

Adriannomwhen i click on it nothing happens13:26
Adriannomah, hovering over it says "no device found"13:26

Adriannomcan't find any settings for it13:26

recon69_lapAdriannom: yep, thats the one, on AC tab , is it reducing brightness ?13:33

recon69_lapAdriannom: this night help https://help.ubuntu.com/11.04/ubuntu-help/power-brighter.html13:40

Adriannomdoes turning brightness down normally leave the mouse unaffected?13:42

Adam313can anyone help me out?15:05

P-ChanAdam313: use gparted15:07
Adam313P-Chan, Thanks I'l look into it15:07
astraljavaAdam313: You don't necessary need to delete the partition either, the installer is capable of installing on a partition you don't need anymore. It will re-format it if that's what you want.15:08
Adam313I wont delete that parition if you told me I don't need to :p15:08
Adam313I was just wondering where can I download this, can I download it for windows xp?15:08
Adam313My desktop is rigt beside me and I'm ready to go15:09
* astraljava points at the topic15:09
recon69_lapAdam313: it's a good idea to get the partition info before you install as it can be hard to know what partition is which with just device names15:09
Adam313recon69_lap, It's a small parition, 60gb's15:09
Adam313I know which one I'm using because I only have two15:09
Adam313So is there any other networks on freenods that I would enjoy lol15:10
Adam313I have never been on freenods for a long time before.15:10
astraljavaAdam313: No idea, but please use -offtopic for other chitchat, this is a support channel only.15:10
Adam313one more question: is gparted for windows ?15:11
P-ChanAdam313: no but live cd is avaiable15:12
Adam313P-Chan, What is live cd because I have no cd's to burn anything to, I was thinking of using a usb drive by using linux live usb15:13
Adam313P-Chan, I need a parition editor so I can delete the files of that parition safely first of all15:13
P-Chanuse mint live usb to delete mint installed15:14
astraljavaAdam313: You can use the live image from USB stick as well, don't be fooled by the name.15:14
recon69_lapAdam313: the installer allows you to delete/create/format partitions15:14
Adam313recon69_lap, the xubuntu installer??15:15
Adam313Wow, that solves a lot of things.15:15
Adam313I have another thing: is the newest xubuntu better or 10.415:15
Adam313Because I want to use the windows ubuntu installer, is there a list of what version I can pick on it? not just ubuntu, like kubuntu or xubuntu15:16
recon69_lapAdam313: just select advance or other when installing15:16
Adam313recon69_lap, okay15:17

recon69_lapAdam313: what is this windows installer you talk about, sounds bad15:17
Adam313Uhm, It's on the ubuntu site.15:17

Adam313recon69_lap, Yes.15:18
astraljavaAdam313: Then that's not a windows installer you're looking for15:18
Adam313astraljava, I was thinking of using wubi15:18
astraljavaAdam313: Right. Well, be aware that it'll be fairly limited.15:18
Adam313astraljava, What will be limited? wubi15:19
recon69_lapAdam313: thats not a duel boot system15:19

recon69_lapP-Chan: not really a xfce issue, more of a xorg issue15:37
milen8204recon69_lap, I can not run Video in internet sites15:38

Adam313recon69_lap, I have a 700mb cd15:39
Adam313and the .iso file 7.13.3mb15:39
Adam313will I be fine15:39
Adam313Or should I use my usb15:39
P-Chanrecon69_lap: the problem is only xubuntu has this problem, Kubuntu haven't it but i prefer xubuntu super mega power light weight15:39
recon69_lapAdam313: just make sure you do not just copy the file, you need to burn it as a .iso15:40
Adam313recon69_lap, what do you mean15:40
recon69_lapP-Chan: your issue is at a lower level that the UI, issue is with your monitor or video not being correctly setup/detected.15:41
Adam313the program I am goingto use will be the usb program " linux live usb" I'm not going to use the cd15:41
recon69_lapAdam313: well i used usb-creator-gtk , but not sure if you on windows15:43
Adam313I am on windows15:43
Adam313is that for windows15:43
Adam313I might use it if you claim its good15:43

P-Chanpleia2: I use UNETBOOT15:44
pleia2P-Chan: use #xubuntu-offtopic15:44
pleia2P-Chan: please don't post links like that here15:44
recon69_lapAdam313: no, you'll have to find whatever MS windows uses. 3 years since I used windows, like a foreign country now15:44
P-Chanpleia2: ok15:44
Adam313pleia2, what is unetbooting15:45
Adam313is it a usb creator for iso files15:45
pleia2Adam313: the link I gave explains15:45
pleia2(I don't use windows either, so I'm not really sure about the process)15:45
recon69_lapI like the way a USB install remembers everything so you dont have to do anything twice :)15:46
Adam313recon69_lap, okay15:47
Adam313its putting the .ISO onto my drive15:47
recon69_lapanyone know why i get "Failed to execute child process "palimpsest" (No such file or directory)" when i select application->system->disk utility ?15:49
Adam313also recon69_lap : can I delete the iso of the drive after?15:49
recon69_lapAdam313: what???15:51
recon69_lapAdam313: remember that a .iso is a copy of a drive, so can be confusing if you are not really clear15:51
Adam313recon69_lap, Oh, I meant can I delte the .iso off the USB drive :P15:52
recon69_lapAdam313: the iso should not be on the USB drive? did you copy it there?15:53
Adam313I'm writing it there recon69_lap15:53
Adam313using linux live usb creator.15:53
Adam313It writes it there and makes the usb bootable15:53
Adam313so I can use it for install just like a cd15:53
recon69_lapAdam313: yes, and after you write it the USB will contain a linux operating system15:53
Adam313I know, but can I delete it off the usb after15:54
Adam313I know you think that may be silly but I might need to if my mum needs it (she does not use  google drive, dropbox, etc)15:54
Adam313I don't have a USB drive and I am using hers15:54
recon69_lapAdam313: agggh, the ISO will not be on the USB, a linux operation system will be,15:54
Adam313well you know what I mean, can i delete the linux os off of it after? :P15:55
Adam313ah it recognized the linux distro, xubuntu 12.04 :)15:55
recon69_lapAdam313: sure, but create a live CD so you have a backup for system rescue15:56
Adam313obv :p15:56
Adam313okay thats good that I can delete it after15:56
Adam313thanks for all your help recon69_lap15:56
recon69_lapyou have not used computers long, nothing is obv :)15:56

GridCubei recommend ntfs16:21
Adam313why ntfs16:21
GridCubefat32 its safer yes, but i have find that ntfs its less pron to incredible cases of file corruption16:22
recon69_lapthis probably worth reading for new linux users http://www.unixmen.com/201204-top-things-to-do-after-installing-ubuntu-2/16:22
GridCubeand for usbs like 16gb its better16:22
Adam313GridCube, mums only going to be using it for ms word (ew)16:22

GridCubemilen8204, if you use firefox you can try the flash-aid add-on16:27
Adam313GridCube, do you mind if i send via irc16:27
vitaldGridCube, what can to do with it?16:27
GridCube!imagebing | Adam31316:27
GridCube!imagebin | Adam31316:27
ubottuAdam313: Screenshots can be made with the [PrtScr] button. Want to show us a screenshot of your problem? Upload an image to http://imagebin.org/?page=add and post a link to it.16:27
GridCubevitald im investigating16:28
Adam313GridCube, http://imagebin.org/21313116:29
vitaldGridCube, thanks, i'm waiting16:29
recon69_lapdoes "applications->system->disk utility" give a error when starting to anyone else?16:29
GridCubeAdam313, in windows install http://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html16:30
GridCubeits a free partition manager16:30
Adam313GridCube, I don't know why but this is seriously messed up :/16:31
Adam313GridCube, what irc client do you use?16:31
GridCubevitald, http://wiki.audacityteam.org/index.php?title=Noise_Removal16:31
recon69_lapmilen8204: also just found For Ubuntu 32 bit & 64 bit : To be able to watch some videos and see  flash website in your browser (firefox/ Chrome..), you need to install  flash plugin, go to  ubuntu software center and search  word “flash” and install it.16:32
Adam313GridCube, Thanks16:32
Adam313I see all the files16:32
Adam313this is great16:32
recon69_lapdamn, all these different instructions for different UI's , becoming a mess16:32
milen8204recon69_lap, I have been installed flash plug-in16:32
Adam313recon69_lap, I see the linux os on the usb drive16:33
Adam313but why is it not booting16:33
Adam313Is it because I am using a partition16:33
recon69_lapAdam313: is your bios set to boot from usb?16:33
Adam313recon69_lap, I don't know16:33
GridCubei see 2reasons: 1) it wasnt marked as booteable, b) your computer can't boot into usbs16:33
Adam313How would I do that16:33
recon69_lapmilen8204: well, does it work now after installing the flash plugin?16:34
GridCubeAdam313, usually, modern bios have an F11 function that lets you choose the booting media16:34
milen8204recon69_lap,  the adobe flash pug in have been installed whit xubuntu-restricted-extras16:34
GridCubethats correct16:35
Adam313okay I'm sure it wont work for this16:35
Adam313so I shall just delete it16:35
recon69_lapAdam313: somthing like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8VZ95_XFA816:35
milen8204but still no video16:35
GridCubeAdam313, as you please16:35
GridCubemilen8204, http://get.adobe.com/es/flashplayer/16:35
vitaldGridCube, it didn't solve my problem. This noise is in any programs and I think that problem is in PulseAudio or somewhere more.16:35
GridCubevitald, sadly, my experience with audiorecording says that hardware noise its pretty common16:36
recon69_lapvitald: opening alsa-mixer can be helpful with soud issues16:36
Adam313GridCube, I don't know what ahppend16:36
Adam313now its just not even opening16:37
GridCubeAdam313, usb keys die all the time16:37
Adam313GridCube, :/16:37
GridCubevitald, http://wiki.audacityteam.org/index.php?title=Improving_Recording_Quality16:38
recon69_laplol, I normally lose them long before that, and had one that made it through the wash several times :)16:38
milen8204I have chrash-report16:38
GridCubemilen8204, does the get.adobe page said you are running  Versión de Adobe Flash Player
vitaldrecon69_lap: I tried to make something in alsa-mixer early, microphone was working perfect in Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10...16:39
milen8204GridCube, no it says the package was not found16:39
vitaldGridCube, thanks for link but I think that problem isn't in Audacity16:39
recon69_lapvitald: probably some setting, only recently on xubuntu myself16:40
GridCubevitald, :/16:40
GridCubevitald, what does pavucontrol settings are?16:40
GridCubemaybe you upped the volume a itch too much?16:40
GridCuberecon69_lap, http://get.adobe.com/es/flashplayer/16:41
GridCubethis site correct?16:41
GridCubeit says you have no flash16:41
recon69_lapvitald: and you have checked out sound setting in the volume control ?16:41
GridCuberecon69_lap, thats pavucontrol :)16:42
Adam313GridCube, I fixed it.16:42
Adam313not going to get xubuntu yet16:42
Adam313gotta get a cd because bios wont work16:42
Adam313GridCube, It was quite easy, Linux is very advanced though16:42
Adam313I had to go through hell and back to get wee chat for irc16:42
Adam313I'm switching to Xubuntu because of the horribad repos on min1216:43
GridCubesudo apt-get install weechat16:43
Adam313GridCube, Obviously16:43
Adam313but I had to install16:43
Adam313extra stuffa16:43
Adam313and extra stuff16:43
Adam313and fix errors16:43
recon69_lapAdam313: you just have beginners problems, you'll be apt-getting like the best of us in a week16:43
vitaldGridCube, recon69_lap:  volume is normal, I tried different levels, I set 4.0 sound output and stereo input and 6 ch sound in alsamixer. Maybe it connected with my problem?16:43
GridCubeAdam313, the livecd has xchat preinstalled16:43
Adam313GridCube, XChat is not always the best16:44
GridCubedunno vitald thats way too much to my experience level16:44
Adam313I like WEEChat because it is very Lightweight16:44
GridCubeAdam313, but its preinstalled16:44
recon69_lapdoes the disk manager fail for anyone else or just me?16:44
Adam313irssi is light weight16:44
Adam313easy to install16:44
Adam313wee chat is like irssi16:44
Adam313but with more stuff and basicly better all in all16:44
GridCubehow "fail"16:44
recon69_lap"system->disk utility" i mean16:44
Adam313arch is the best lolololollol16:45
GridCubei dont have that recon69_lap16:45
recon69_lapGridCube: Failed to execute child process "palimpsest" (No such file or directory)16:45
Unit193Weechat is different than irssi, and clearly you use weechat.  They exist for different people.16:45
vitaldGridCube, recon69_lap: 4.0 output is working just if i set 6ch in alsamixer. If I set a 4ch pavucontrol is make a fictive output and I have no sound.16:45
GridCubevitald, sorry i dont know :(16:46
GridCubemaybe the people on #medibuntu can help you?16:46
GridCubethey use xfce now16:46

vitaldGridCube, sadly but thanks for trying16:46
Unit193GridCube: #ubuntustudio?16:46
recon69_lapvitald: same here, dont know, just pointed out the sound controls I know of. there was a hardware test app that might be worth looking for16:47
GridCubethat one16:47
Adam313Do any of you use arch?16:47
GridCube:/ why did i say medibuntu?16:47
GridCubevitald, ask on #ubuntustudio16:47

recon69_lapalso getting "The 'Manual' browser command has been chosen, but no command has been set." when i click links in pidgin17:02

brilI am now very technical, and my English is also not that good18:16
brilBut i made a bootable usb disk with the alternate iso and after installing I only had a terminal.18:17
GridCubebril, no, the alternate has not gui18:17
brilthen we have a problem :)18:18
GridCubebril, what you need?18:18
recon69_lapsound like he wants a xubuntu desktop in under 4gb18:19
brilWell, it is an old laptop with only 4 gb disk. Very small so usefull for places where i wanna have a laptop but not my normal one. On holidays and things like that18:19

brilwell, I got my answer: Xubuntu doesnt work for that laptop anymore18:24
brilno gui = no option so i gonna test slitaz18:24
brilthanks you guys18:25

Unit193Also, you could go from the mini and just install what you need (openbox, fluxbox)18:25
brilGridCube, i am very new. So correct me if I am wrong, but the gui is that use can use your mouse and see graphics. Not only a terminal18:26

ubottuA high percentage of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..." Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.20:37

astraljavaJust good fun, but maybe a tad in the wrong channel. :) cymbalkid, the thing is, this is not a place for general chat, so Unit193 was trying to educate you via the factoids.20:43

sankeywill xfce 4.10 have to wait until xubuntu 12.10 to hit official repos?22:09
crondsankey, I believe so, since 12.04 is an LTS, I don't think they tend to update major package versions, but I could be wrong.  However, there is a ppa for 4.10.22:16
sankeycrond: okay, but for sure we'll never see 4.10 in the 12.04 liveCD, right?22:17
pleia2that's right (and the ppa isn't officially supported, may not work as expected sometimes)22:17
pleia2sankey: right22:17
* crond decides to try the 4.10 PPA and see if everything will die horribly.22:17
sankeyi hope it works, i'm trying to get a friend to use linux, and xubuntu is looking like a good option22:18
sankeyand he like the half-screen window tiling/snap in windows22:19
sankeyi suppose unity is a good option too22:19
crondseems functional.  so far.22:25
crondpower manager says I have 10 hours of battery22:27
crondthat can't be right.22:27
sankeyhow does that work, takes the average consumption over time?22:28
sankeymaybe it needs more samples22:28
crondI'm guessing so22:28
crondahh, adjusting my screen brightness also makes a major difference.22:28
sankeyaccording to this PDF i found on google, the difference between high and low screen brightness is 3.5 -> 0.5 watts22:30
sankeyon a particular laptop from like 5 years ago22:30
sankeyif your laptop idles at 10 watts, then 3 watts *does* make a big difference22:31
