pimperleif i select "sans" from the font list in xubuntu, what font will that be?11:54
pimperlewhere is configured what "Sans" means?11:54
pimperleits neither ubuntu sans, dejavu sans, droid sans. Choosing those changes the font. however I'd like to avoid having to check all fonts and would also like to know (for curiosity) where the setting comes from11:57

xubuntu662just installing right now :p17:15
blackgatonegroyou can expand a particion17:15
xubuntu662is there some good "howto" do to it correct?17:16
xubuntu662I know what I want, but not able to know how to do it correctly17:16

blackgatonegroif opera does not work, then it does not work under linux17:43
drcblackgatonegro: It <does> work under linux...Works fine with Salix17:43
blackgatonegromaybe xubuntu is missing some libraries17:44
Unit193Opera works on Xubuntu, if that's the question.17:44

caytchenhey, my xubuntu system only works through the guest account. can I somehow gain root from the guest interface? tried su but apparently i'm not allowed to do anything even when I supply the correct password.20:12
Barnabasboot of a usb device and edit the relevant user /group files?20:13
greasegumWhen I click on a panel icon to minimize I can't click to restore right away. I have to focus another window, then click the panel icon to restore. This is completely maddening.20:13
caytchenno usb device anywhere.20:14
Barnabascaytchen, really? what kind of hw20:14
caytchenwell sure the thing has USB but I don't have a suitable stick to do that :o20:14
Barnabascdrom/dvd/blueray will do to20:15
caytchencan't i just boot directly into a shell without the X stuff?20:15
Barnabasemergency shell yes20:15
caytchenhow would that work?20:15
Barnabaspress shift while booting20:15
caytchenthanks, I will try that20:15
Barnabasgrub should show up and you can select emergency da di da da20:15
greasegumanyone know how to get panel icons to act right?20:19
Barnabashmm define "right" :-)20:20
Barnabasif you have installed a regular ubuntu and then added xubuntu - it is not the same as installing xubuntu20:22
BarnabasI realized that today20:22
Barnabasam on a freshly installed xubuntu20:22
Barnabasfantastic system compared to the general suckyness of gnome-shell and unity in particular20:22
MarzataI install xubuntu, and after that LXDE and xmonad.20:24
greaseguminteresting, I never thought that would be an issue20:25
greasegumyah I despise unity. such a waste of screen for one thing20:25
BarnabasI despise it due the the utter crap it is handling multiple monitors20:27
greasegumdo you run compiz?20:27
Barnabaswhy does the launch bar HAVE to be on the right most monitor ..20:27
Barnabasyeah compiz20:27
Barnabasbelieve on a default xubuntu install it is std20:28
Barnabasto run with a composite manager20:28
greasegumI want to do a fresh install, but I don't want to reconfigure... :\20:28
Barnabasbackup home/etc?20:28
Barnabasnuke your system and copy files back20:28
greasegumthat's an idea20:29
BarnabasI did that today20:29
Barnabas1½ to 2 hours20:29
Barnabasto much hacking and too many upgrades of the old system20:29
greasegumstill have to reinstall all packages, though...20:30
Barnabasyou can do a dump of what you have installed and use it for reinstall20:30
greasegumusing synaptic?20:31
Barnabaspretty simple20:31
Barnabasyou may be able to with synaptic also20:32
Barnabasbut I would not know the correct procedure for that20:32
greasegumit's tempting. I'm a sucker for a fresh install.20:33
BarnabasI usually keep important data "in the cloud" so reinstalling a pc is trivial20:35
Barnabasubuntu one is your friend20:35
