xubuntu563need help dont kno if im in the right place i just installed a copy of xubuntu and i cant seem to get the sound to work00:12
Zelouillexubuntu563, yes you are.00:28
ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.00:28

keithclarkHow do I access a drive on another computer in xubuntu?  I don't seem to be able to get the file manager to work with a ssh session01:01
ochosikeithclark: what version of xubuntu are you using=01:02
keithclarkochosi, 12.1001:03
ochosikeithclark: then just hit ctrl+l and enter "sftp://$user@$server-ip:$port"01:04
ochosi(obviously $user stands for your username etc.)01:04
ochosiin the filemanager01:04
ochosi== thunar01:04
keithclarkwhy not just ssh://user@x.x.x.x01:11
ochosikeithclark: because sftp is ssh's file transfer protocol?01:20
keithclarkAh, it worked fine.  Thanks01:20
ochosigood :)01:21
mark_Hello.  I want my default browser to be Chrome, but whenever I set it as default (through preferred applications or the browser itself) it always goes to not being the default.  How can I go about fixing that?01:37

lotatoI had a quick question regarding method three listed on this page02:36
lotatowhat is the command I should be mapping to a key?02:36
lotatoI don't seem to have it as an unset option in my list02:36
lotatocould someone kindly check to see if they have in their keyboard shortcut list? It'd be greatly appreciated! :]02:37
drcIt's in my 12.04.1 system, unset, like the page said02:39
lotatowhat is the command that should be mapped to a key? I unfortunately don't seem to have it in same system02:41
lotatoin the* same system (12.04.1)02:42
drcYou sure it's not there?  In my system, it's the 17th item in the list, between Move Window and Shade window (you have to scroll down to see it).02:44
drcAnd I suspect that clicking the Reset to Defaults button would put it back.02:45
lotatoI must've removed most of the options when I was making my own to unclutter the list. I guess I'll have to reset it after backing up my custom ones02:47
lotatohuh. I reset them to the defaults, yet I still don't have it02:50
lotatoalong with Move Window or Shade Window or anything like that02:50
drcThen one of us is looking at the wrong place :)02:51
drcJust to be sure, you aren't looking at Settings>Settings Manager> Keyboard> Applications Shortcuts?02:52
lotatoAha, you've got me! I've been looking in the wrong place, and just where you mentioned. Boy do I feel silly now02:53
drcBeen there, dome that, got the silly grin :)02:53
lotatoThank you for the help drc! When I was reading that page, I must've glossed over the location as soon as I saw the word Keyboard. I automatically assumed it was Applications > Shortcuts02:54
lotatoShows how important it is for me to read first :]02:54
lotatoThanks drc!02:54
drcRead Twice, Code once :)02:55
lotatoWords to live by! I need to start by learning those words! Haha. Have a good night and once again, thanks!02:55

xubuntu998hi, since updating to 12.04 lts i have no main menu, can anyone help03:34
xubuntu998There is an alacarte (?) menu but it is limited03:36
asterismoxubuntu998, there is alacarte, but it is not installed by default03:38
drcYou mean you have no Applications Menu?  The one usually on the far left side of the top panel?03:38
asterismoopen a terminal and execute "sudo apt-get install alacarte"03:39
xubuntu998nothing, nada, i'm pretty clueless but i did a google and found no help03:39
drcnothing, nada...what?  I'm confused.03:41
xubuntu998it just says whatever application is open or 'ubuntu desktop' if none are open but no menu, no options03:41
drc"It" ??????03:42
xubuntu998:-) you're confused, i'm clueless. Top panel -if no applications are open it says 'ubuntu desktop' in top left corner, if an app is open it has ththe name of app in top left and option to close, minimise ore max when mose hovers over, but nothing else03:44
drcwhat did you update from?03:45
xubuntu998not sure, had an 'updates available' top right and clicked ok03:46
drcAt some point you had to install xubuntu (from a cd or usb)  what was that?03:49
xubuntu998that was a couple of years ago, not even sure what version, would have downloaded or dorrowed the disk,03:50
xubuntu998was working fine till this upgrade03:50
xubuntu998can't even open terminal as it is not on alacarte menu03:56
drccan you right click on an open space on the top panel, go to the bottom of the drop down menu where it says panel?03:58
xubuntu998no, nothing happens when i right click (or left click)04:00
drcAre you sure you're using XUBUNTU, not UBUNTU ?04:01
xubuntu998i was pretty sure, how can i check now......      only thing that happens is if i double click on top panel web browser goes from full screen to window04:03
drcWhat happens if you move the mouse/sursor all the way to the left?04:06
xubuntu998nothing, alacarte is always visible04:06
drcwhat;s on the far right of the top panel?04:07
xubuntu998 an envelope, volume icon, time, user and shut down/system settings dropdown04:09
drcsystem settings?  that's an item on the men that drops down?04:14
xubuntu998yup, opens a window, has three main catagories,  personal, hardware and system.04:16
xubuntu998in system is backup, details, management services, time, universal access and user accounts04:17
drcOK, if you have "alacarte" always visable on the left, and a systems settings on a drop down menu on the right, I'm going to hazard an informed guess that you have UBUNTU, not Xubuntu (unity not xfce)04:18
xubuntu998Hmmmmm, im gonna reboot and see what it says, i was damb sure it was Xubuntu, but now i'm not sure.04:19
xubuntu998Thanks for youre help04:19
drcno problem04:19
* drc just shakes his head04:22

bartzyHow do I open docx document with Abiword ? :\11:41
knomeyou don't, abiword doesn't support docx11:42
bartzyknome: I thought it did. through plugins or something ?11:44
knomebartzy, i don't think it supports docx anyway. doc, yes, but not docx11:46
knomeright, it might. but the problem is, if it doesn't open...11:46
bartzyAnd libreoffice requires gnome libs11:46
knomethen you're kind of out of luck11:47
bartzySo I should install libreoffice to get a normal "Office" experience ?11:47
knomeif you need better compatilibity with microsoft "x" formats, then probably11:47
