Adam___Hello, I am having a problem with the action buttons applet for xfce4 panel05:53
Adam___the actions "shutdown" and "restart" are greyed out. I have tried modifying the /.xinitrc to no avail05:55
holsteinAdam___: i would try restart from the terminal and make sure it works.. i would try as a different user to see if my config is breaking something06:04
Adam___I have restarted several times from terminal.. thanks for the reply and sorry for my delay06:09
Adam___Forgot to mention this occurred after 40 updates for xfce 4.1006:10
holsteinAdam___: how is it as a new user?06:10
Adam___I haven't tried yet but I did make sure my user/group had full admin privelages06:11
Adam___should I log/out in ass guest user?06:12
holsteinAdam___: i just suggest taking your current user config out of the equation.. for troubleshooting... however you want to do that06:13
Adam___ok I will try that now and be back in 5 minutes. Thank-you06:14
Adam___Oh yeah.. I forgot also when I log out from the menu I get: Method "Logout" with signature "bb" on interface "org.xfce.Session.Manager" doesn't exist06:15
Adam___I will logout from terminal06:15
Adam___same thing happened with guest account with/without admin privs06:20
holsteinAdam___: its not the privs im checking for06:20
holsteinAdam___: its the config06:20
holsteinAdam___: assuming all users have greyed out options, then its safe to say its system wide06:20
holsteinnot a user config issue06:20
Adam___I wish I knew what update caused this06:21
holsteinAdam___: i would check for broken packages06:21
Adam___Immediately after the update is when thins went wonky, I saw this problem on other forums but it was in arch linux06:22
Adam___They also weren't using a login manager I believe and changing their /.xinitrc fixed the problem for them, but didn't wok for me06:23
Adam___I will check for broken packages06:24
Adam___everything seems to be fine06:27
Adam___besides the problem at hand06:28

holsteinAdam___: i have no shutdown button... or restart..06:36
Adam___As in you don't have the action-buttons applet in the panel? Or because it isn't checked off in the action-panel properties?06:38
Adam___action-button properties*06:39
holsteinAdam___: as in, i dont want them, so i dont have them06:40
Adam___So you just use terminal instead of the GUI is what you are saying..06:40
holsteini dont use them.. i built what i use daily on my netbook from openbox and tint2 etc... and i dont use shutdown or restart buttons.. since i dont need to shutdown or restart but every kernel upgrade06:41
Adam___I see06:41
Adam___I frequently shutdown and restart on my notebook, so it's an ease of access thing for me. Instead of having to open terminal, sudo shutdown -P now, password, etcetera06:43
Adam___Do you know of any alternative action buttons?06:45
holsteinAdam___: you can create what you like... im not sure whats broken for you though.. i would try reinstalling the 40 packages06:46
holsteinAdam___: at least you kept track of that.. thats helpful id say06:46
Adam___I'll try that. Thanks for your help holstein06:48
Adam___appreciate it06:48
holsteinAdam___: anytime.. hope you get it sorted without too much hassle... try the mailing list if you dont get a good answer here..06:49

cousteauI just installed electricsheep but it doesn't appear on Screensaver settings.  Do I need any extra step?15:35
cousteauprobably rebooting fixes it, but I'd rather not reboot now15:35
cousteau...also it shows a generic list of screensavers, some of which aren't installed.  Do I need to add the screensaver to that list somehow?15:36
cousteaumaybe delete ~/.xscreensaver ?15:37
holsteincousteau: i dont use screensavers, but from what i remember, the list is available/suggested ones16:17
holsteincousteau: where did you get the electric sheep screensaver?16:18
cousteauholstein, repositories16:26
cousteauand it's already on /usr/lib/xscreensaver/electricsheep -> ../../bin/electricsheep16:27
holsteincousteau: the default ubuntu repos then? you just searched in a package manager? and didnt add any ppa's?16:27
cousteauI didn't reboot the computer either16:27
cousteau(on the time I've spent afk I could have rebooted it, now that I think of it)16:28
GrapeApecousteau: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/11/how-to-get-electric-sheep-to-work-with.html16:29
holsteinyeah, i was thinking that might be an ok place to start, but it references ubuntu tweak which i think is uncessarry for a screensaver config16:30
GrapeApeeh? how so16:30
cousteauGrapeApe, ok...  but shouldn't it get added automatically?16:30
cousteauI even deleted ~/.xscreensaver and it got regenerated16:30
GrapeApecousteau: i have no clue why it isn't added automatically. i don't use it.16:30
GrapeApecousteau: apparently you need to add it manually16:31
GrapeApecousteau: should take about 5 seconds to determine if it works or not16:31
holsteinGrapeApe: oh, thats a different one than what i seached.. yeah.. http://www.webupd8.org/2011/11/how-to-get-electric-sheep-to-work-with.html looks ideal cousteau16:31
GrapeApecousteau: if it doesn't; no harm, no foul. remove the line from the file16:31
cousteauok, ok, doing it16:31
cousteau<troll> it says gedit not installed! </troll>16:35

xubuntu368question: how can i return my mouse back to normal sensitivity? it randomly started to highlight and click while i'm just using the track pad to move the pointer16:54
xubuntu368correction... it's not a mouse, it's a track pad on my laptop16:55
xubuntu368i'm running xubuntu 12.0416:57
GrapeApexubuntu368: is this truly random, or after resuming the laptop ( or any other commonality you can think of )17:07
GrapeApexubuntu368: also, does your trackpad have physicla mouse buttons underneath it, or does it 'click' using finger taps17:09
