zgnuuHow can I install fonts in Xubuntu?04:45
holsteinzgnuu: i just put them over in the /fonts directory.. /usr/share/fonts04:46
zgnuudrag and drop?04:46
holsteinzgnuu: if you want to run a filemanger as sudo, you can drag and drop04:47
holsteini open a terminal and sudo mv or sudo cp them04:47
zgnuuhow can I run filemanager as sudo?04:47
zgnuusudo filemanager?04:47
holsteinzgnuu: you should be *very* careful as root.. if you want to do say "gksudo thunar"04:47
holsteinyou can really do some damage like that04:48
zgnuuso I dragged and drop terminus into usr/share/fonts04:49
zgnuubut when I went into settings > fonts,  Icouldn't find it there04:49
holsteinzgnuu: if you put a font in there that can be used, it will be used04:49
holsteinzgnuu: i would expect to restart at least the application you are looking for the fonts from04:50
Chad__To make the system aware of the new fonts, type "fc-cache -f -v"04:50
holsteinzgnuu: there at links to fonts that will certainly work at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Fonts04:50
zgnuustill nothing after fc-cache -f -v04:51
zgnuuterminus is a bitmap font and I've used it before in ubuntu 12.0404:51
holsteinzgnuu: i would try with the known good ones.. xubuntu *is* ubuntu, so when you get a font that can be used, it'll be used04:52
zgnuunvm apt-get install xfonts-terminus worked04:55
zgnuuthank you both04:58
zgnuuis it possible to enable font smoothing in xubuntu?05:08
holsteinzgnuu: its all open, so in theory, everything is possible.. are you talking about on the screen?05:09
zgnuuerrr, i'm not sure, but maybe through a graphical interface?05:10
holsteinzgnuu: what fonts? the ones you see in general on the screen? printed out? in a certain app? on the desktop?05:13
zgnuuthroughout xubuntu05:13
holsteinme and http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1899016 suggest Settings->Settings Manager->Appearance->Fonts or somewhere like that...05:14
zgnuuthere's no option for font smoothing there05:16
holsteinzgnuu: i would play around with the options that are there, and dont assume to see the term "smoothing"05:17
holsteinhttp://askubuntu.com/questions/115645/how-to-change-default-fonts-in-xubuntu should look something like that... anti aliasing for example05:19

zgnuuwhere would I add themes for the window manager?05:53
zgnuuand would they be called XFCE themes or GTK themes?05:53
ubottuTo change your theme in Xubuntu, go to Settings Manager » Appearance (GTK+ theme) or Settings Manager » Window Manager (xfwm4 theme) to change the theme - find more themes at http://xfce-look.org/ or http://gnome-look.org/ (for GTK+ themes)05:58
zgnuuif I wanted to add more xfwm4 themes, would I put them in usr/share/xfwm4 ?06:04
zgnuuassuming that archey says that my window manager is xfwm?06:04
well_laid_lawnzgnuu: there or in ~/.themes06:10
zgnuuI've added the theme that I want, but I don't see them when I right click > applications > settings > settings manager > window manager06:11
well_laid_lawnwhere did you add it?06:13
zgnuuboth ~/.themes06:13
zgnuuand user/share/xfwm406:14
well_laid_lawndid you unpack it?06:14
zgnuulike "unrar" it?06:14
zgnuuerr extract I mena06:14
zgnuui mean06:15
zgnuuwhen I go into .themes, I see only 1 folder: coldsteel06:15
zgnuuwhen I go into that folder, it's mostl all xpm files06:15
well_laid_lawnsee if this helps - http://wiki.xfce.org/howto/install_new_themes06:18
well_laid_lawnI hardly mess with themes06:18
zgnuuooh I got it06:21

iFireI can reinstall it, and try to hold shift :)18:35
iFireI used a liveCD, and installed it in a unlocated partition18:35
iFireAnd made a 1GB partition to swift, and 1GB to bootloader.. Do you think it'll boot if I hold shift?18:36
kgbmeh could've just fixed his apt-get18:36

qasimyou guys are talking something beyond my comprehension level... im new to linx :(18:54
kgbjust check that link, it's simple18:55

kgbqasim: 2 commands, where it says 'Installing Skype'18:56
qasimthat link contains info about installing skype..but there isn't anything about ininstallation process18:57
kgbsudo apt-get purge skype, or from the software center18:57
qasimlet me see18:57
kgberr qasim don't purge if you have settings already18:57
kgbjust uninstall from the software center18:58
kgbsry about that :S18:58
qasimi have older version of skype...i can't really do voice chat through it so im trying newest version18:58
kgbbut you should be able to just upgrade it I THINK18:58
qasimwhats the difference b/w purging and uninstalling through software centre?18:59
kgbafter adding the partner repo, second command: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade18:59
kgbpurging should remove everything related to that package19:00
qasimoh rite19:00
kgbsettings included19:00
qasimi think purging would be fin e then19:00
kgb:) yeah, maybe better19:00
qasimbecause with my present settings i am unable to voice chat19:00
qasimok let me try19:00
kgbqasim: if you want,19:01

kgbah ok :)19:02
qasimnow how to add partner repos?19:02
kgbsudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" like in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Skype19:02

kgbshould be ok just installing from the repo19:06
kgbif i recall correctly :)19:07

qasimrecording goes well with sound recorder..so its seemingly the skype issue19:11

For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI19:36
iFirehmmh, maybe it's the "ASUS" logo at startup that is the UEFI? It's a normal BIOS menu.. But how to fix? (It's the 64bit, yeah)19:38
iFireI can't get the grub bootloader :0¨19:38

holsteini would literally open the package manager of your choicee and search "c++'20:27
holsteini havent used one, so i cant suggest one20:27
holsteinbuild essentials should be a good start20:28
holstein"sudo aptitude install build-essential" "This will install all the required packages for C and C++ compilers"20:29
qasimi need to run c++ codes20:29
qasimand a compiler with good interface for preparing codes20:29

holsteinqasim: you have something that is making you repeat posts20:30
qasimi got dc so i repeated the question20:31
qasimterminal  says it is a bad command or file name20:34
holsteinpastebin what you did and what you got20:35
holsteinmaybe you are looking for a GUI software development environment...20:35
qasimi copy pated the terminal command you gave me an it said command20:36
qasimyeah a gui for writing codes20:36
holsteinqasim: im no developer, but a compiler is just that... not a GUI20:36
holsteinqasim: "writing codes" doesnt require a GUI20:36
qasimyeah but its always good to write codes through a gui20:37
holsteinqasim: good is a matter of opinion20:38
holsteinqasim: what are you trying to do?20:38
qasimi have c++ as my subj as well...so i have to write codes and submit..therefore i need a compiler that works fine with xubuntu plus a GUI20:39
holsteinqasim: build essentials is a compiler.. gedit is a GUI20:40
holsteinqasim: maybe you are looking for something like kdevelop20:41
qasimlet me find how to install build essentials20:41
holsteinor eclipse20:41

holsteinqasim: you are not really looking for build essential anyway..21:23
holsteinqasim: go ahead and try one of the GUI's i linked above..21:23
holsteinat some point, you will need to pull in build-essential though21:24
qasimmaybe, if i couldnt find any substitute21:25
holsteinqasim: there a *so* many.. just look in the package manager of your choice and start randomly testing them21:26
qasimhmm right21:26
holsteinqasim: i fired up kdevelop once.. the others were codeblocks and semething else, but there a lots of them21:26
qasimhmm yeah21:27
holsteinyou can always use something online like a more robust version of http://codepad.org/21:27
holsteinor try using the software you are familiar with in WINE.. or in windows in VM21:28
qasimholstein,  will i be able to run dev compiler through wine?21:33
holsteinqasim: i dont maintain either, so i cant say.. i can say, theres nothing about linux or wine that prevents dev compiler from being written to run on either21:34
holsteinqasim: looks good at wineHQ http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=117821:34
qasimwine was unable to run office when i tried last time..thats why i asked....21:35
holsteinsure.. office is the same21:35
qasimms office i meant*21:35
holsteinqasim: nothing prevents MS from creating office for either linux or to be wine compatible.. but i digress21:39
