ruien1I recommend VNC personally.01:57
=== ruien1 is now known as ruien
ruienspecifically the "tightvncserver" package should work, and then there's TightVNC which works on linux and maybe Mac OS, as well as RealVNC on windows.02:00
ruienThe VNC protocol is decent compared to the X protocol, and it's more secure - but that's what I've heard. I've only actually used VNC, and not the others.02:00

kantoquadnever heard of that but thanks Sysi04:24
Sysithen check that you have gtk-window-decorator set in compiz settings for providing window decorations04:24
kantoquadthat is done04:24
kantoquadthat did not work Sysi , obly chromw has minimize and maximize buttons04:31

xubuntu053Hi, I'm trying to install xubuntu on a spare Harddisk which is not formatted on a XP computer, Xubuntu install screen sees the sare harddisk and asks to partition a main and make a swap partition but could not finish07:49
xubuntu053The spare HD has been controlled and in working condition07:50
ruiendo you get any errors?07:58
xubuntu053the bar mentioning the spare is orange not green, it says no operating system is foound07:58
ruienthat seems odd; the partitioner should never care about that. Are you doing the advanced "partition it myself" option?07:59
ruienseems like all you need is one partition for / and another smaller one for swap and that's it07:59
xubuntu053yes I did partition 18 gb for / and 2 gb for swap08:00
xubuntu053which system should I choose? fat32 or ...08:00
xubuntu053tried ext4 also...08:01
xubuntu053any other setting should I make08:02
ruienin any case you only want ext3 or ext408:03
xubuntu053thanks, I'll try once more and if cannot finish, will come back for more advice from you guys, cheers.08:04
ruienyou can also use gparted08:04
ruieni.e. boot from the ubuntu disk / usb drive08:04
ruienthen use gparted if you want to partition stuff manually08:04
ruienI really like gparted, personally.08:04
xubuntu053I ll have a look at gparted... thanks08:05
ruiengood luck08:05

magnus_is there away to change the xfce terminal title, from the command line, rather than through the gui. Like when you ssh into a server, it changes to the remote host user@host?10:12

xubuntu214hello! i just switched from Ubuntu 11.04 to Xubuntu 12.04. So far everything was great, but any/all USB drives don't stay mounted. they are automounted, and when i browse them, they shortly-thereafter disappear10:36
xubuntu214nor does it seem Xubuntu comes with a graphical disk utlity.10:37
xubuntu214...any ideas?10:38
baizonxubuntu214: check dmesg10:38
laitexubuntu214: you can install gnome-disk-utility from software center/synaptic10:38
baizonyou can use the ubuntu disk utility10:38
xubuntu214everytime it happens, i've done a full shutdown (to turn off the USB drive). i'm afraid if i keep doing it, i'll lose 200gb+ worth of data on the drive10:39
xubuntu214i'm not sure what i'm looking for in dmesg10:40
baizonxubuntu214: usb messages10:40
baizonthat indicates for problems10:41
xubuntu214how far back does dmesg go?10:44
xubuntu214just from the most recent boot?10:44
xubuntu214i haven't connected it this time around (i was ssearching dmesg for previous bootups)10:44
xubuntu214but there's a lot in there10:44
laitexubuntu214: command 'dmesg | greb i- usb' shows only lines which mention word 'usb' (or 'USB')10:48
xubuntu214alright, ive just connected it, and run dmesg10:48
laitesorry, 'dmesg | grep -i usb'10:48
laitetypos :/10:49
xubuntu214so far so good10:49
xubuntu214no worries10:49
