marco__can someone tell me what does it mean this log? http://pastebin.com/8zFiHNti it's from jockey i get it after xubuntu 12.04 fails to install the updates of my driver (proprietary)00:52
Mahmoudany windows installer, like ubuntu's but for xubuntu?00:55
Mahmoudyeah, works for xubuntu?00:56
bazhangnever tried it.00:56
Mahmouddoes it exist for xubuntu at all?00:56
unheedingwubi has an option to install xubuntu, i believe00:58
marco__why is xubuntu supported for 3 years while ubuntu for 5??01:11
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; with the exception of 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), which will be supported for 5 years on the desktop. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Precise (Precise Pangolin 12.04)01:12
bazhangit's not01:12
marco__it says 3 years01:12
marco__(i am talking about the desktop)01:12
knomexubuntu is supported for 3 years, that's true01:12
marco__why so?01:13
bazhang 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), which will be supported for 5 years on the desktop.01:13
knomebazhang, the factoid is incorrect01:13
knomemarco__, no workforce to maintain current packages for 5 years01:13
marco__oh i see01:14
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Xubuntu will be supported for 3 years. The current LTS version is !Precise (Precise Pangolin 12.04)01:16
knomebazhang, ^ updated :)01:16
marco__does anyone know if it's possible to "reduce" the windows on the panel at the bottom and not on the panel on the top?01:17

caboose1911Hello everyone05:14
doug_carmichaelI have Xubuntu installed in a VM, and when I select 'Xfce Session' (vs 'Xubuntu session'), the Xfce window appearance stays even when I select Xubuntu session.05:28
doug_carmichaelIs there any way I can bring back the Xubuntu appearance?05:28
thecan someone please help me with problems with flash player?06:50
theI'm new, just installed xubuntu on my old laptop. adobe flash player is not installed. i want to use firefox.06:51
Unit193the: Enable the partner repo and install adobe-flashplugin06:52
ubottuCanonical's partner repositories provide packages a location for software vendors to publish applications. The repo itself can be added by running this in a !terminal: « sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" »06:52
theflash player version 11 does not work properly, so i want to install version 10 but don't know how.06:53
Unit193What's wrong with it?06:54
theit crashed several times, i could not watch a youtube video, and now it works but the picture is not fluent it s borderline unwatchable.06:58
thelooking up the system requirements for adobe flash player, the problem could be that my laptop has only one GHz, so i figured i'd try  version 10, i downloaded it from the adobe archive (for developpers) but i don't understand how to install it (in the terminal). also i am not sure after installing and uninstalling several times if i have the flashplayer on my computer currently, how can i see that?07:02
Unit193If you used the package manager, you can check that.  dpkg -l|grep flash  would tell you.07:03
thewhat is this partner repo you mentioned? should i install it?07:03
thesorry i'm really at a loss...07:04
Unit193It'll still have flash 11, but you could try apt-pinning at version 10 I'd guess.07:04
thewhat'S apt-pinning?07:04
bazhang!pinning > the07:07
ubottuthe, please see my private message07:07
atom_Hi, is there anyone ?07:12
atom_And is there anyone who can eventually help me ? :D07:12
bazhangatom_, ask the channel and see07:13
atom_Ok :)07:13
atom_I'm running Xubuntu 12.01.1 and I would like to set my screen's brightness. I can't from xcfe4 power manager.07:14
atom_Of course, I press the other arrow by mistake :)07:15
atom_No-one can help me ? :(07:18
theso I typed the two lines in the terminal (installed the partner repo and checked for flash) and it says: ii  adobe-flash-properties-gtk                     GTK+ control panel for Adobe Flash Player plugin version 11 ii  adobe-flashplugin                              Adobe Flash Player plugin version 11 rc  flashplugin-installer         07:22
theso i guess i got adobe flash player.07:22
Unit193Yep, but did you endup also installing manually?07:23
thewould you recommend me to uninstall version 11 and install another one (10?)? how do i uninstall it?07:24
Unit193the: sudo apt-get purge adobe-flashplugin, then you would do a little apt pinning, I think.07:31
the<unit193> thanks07:43
thethe program did that (amongst other things): Removing adobe-flash-properties-gtk ... Removing adobe-flashplugin ...07:44
theso now i install adobe flash player 10 ? (i downloaded it) pinning?07:45
thein the readme from the downloaded adobe flash player it says (among other things):  "The following files are available for your use:  Release Players: Flash Player 10,3,183,23" ...." Linux: ------ - Plugin: flashplayer_10_3r183_23_linux.tar.gz - Standalone: flashplayer_10_3r183_23_linux_sa.tar.gz" how do install that?07:51
thei guess i need only the plugin not the standalone?07:51
Unit193Normally you would pin it at version 10 so it installs that, another not great option would be to get a deb off launchpad.  Everything you need for manual install should be in an INSTALL file or README.07:52
Unit193Also, I need to go at this time.07:52
theokay, thanks for your help Unit193!!!07:56
thehow do I pin it at version 10. do i have to install it first, no?07:58
PedroHLCSorry, can anyone help me? What can I do for Xubuntu sessions mount any connected USB devs(without specifying them) on start like Ubuntu sessions do?14:00

doug_carmichaelI tried installing the XFCE 4.10 PPAs, but after I installed them, I wasn't able to log in successfully. (The login process worked OK, but it just dumped me back to the login screen.)15:49
doug_carmichaelWhat could cause this problem15:49
doug_carmichaelI can log in on a guest account, but not on my account.15:51
David-Adoug_carmichael: maybe a problem with a dot-file. move away one dot-file at a time, try login, if no improvement, move dot-file back and move away the next dot-file. (chuck norris would just remove all dot-files, but thats too harsh)16:22

aicasnis there any way to get ddrescue --fill=+ to ignore write errors? i'm trying to zero out the remaining good sectors of an RMA'd drive19:54
David-Aaicasn: i dont know, look if there are other tools. dd and badblocks can write to sequenses of blocks. you'd have to parse the ddrescue log and maybe compute a bit to pass the right args to them. (dont know if any of them can be told to ignore write errors either.)20:13

oelseni wanted to remove samba but somehow despite having delete the init scripts, it still runs22:28
oelsenwhat program or part of xubuntu needs samba to run and is there a way to stop the system of using those to services?22:28
aicasnyou want to remove samba or you want to disable samba on startup?22:29
oelsennot remove, if possible, only that it doesn't run22:30
oelsenon startup or any time when the system is running22:30
aicasnwhich version of xubuntu are you running?22:31
oelsenoh, dammit, how do I look that up22:31
oelsenuname isn't for that, right?22:31
aicasnlsb_release -a22:31
aicasnthe Release line22:31
oelsenUbuntu 10.04.4 LTS22:32
aicasnhmm.. i don't have a 10.04 anymore....  on 12.04 you could mkdir /etc/init.d-disabled then mv /etc/init.d/{nmbd,smbd,winbind} /etc/init.d-disabled/22:35
oelsenpkill doesn't work22:36
oelsenbasically "steal" the scripts22:37
oelsenwell, that is interesting. I did mv the files but they still run. after a reboot.22:40
oelsenthat isn't remotely funny22:48
oelsensmbd did log any devices that advised its name22:48
oelsenI didn't make that22:48
oelsenwhy is this standard configuration?22:48
knomebecause that's what most people want when using samba?22:49
oelsenbut I didn't use samba at any time22:49
oelsenwhy is this feature turned on in a standard installation?22:49
oelsenwell now those two daemons can't run and the system boots two seconds faster. I hope I don't crash it :D22:53
unheedingdoes anyone know how to change the style of window decorations without losing the inverted top menu bar?23:51
