nimocan you uninstall pulse?   and still get audio?00:30
David-Animo: to some degree yes. (In 10.04 I have uninstalled pulseaudio, pulseaudio-esound-compat, pulseaudio-module-x11,  gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio, libpulse-browse0, libpulse-mainloop-glib0)00:36
nimoDavid-A,   in my understanding pulse lays ontop of ALSA.. and ALSA is sufficient for the everday user... is that correct?00:42
David-Animo: for some people that is probably how it is.00:49
David-Aevery new audio system tries to replace the others being on top of the others. there are thousands of them. this is from before pulse: http://matt.bottrell.com.au/uploads/Pics/linuxaudio.png00:58
David-A(sorry, that was after pulse, not before)00:59
HonestAbehowdy folks! how do I assign a keystroke to workspace switching in 12.10? in previous versions, all that was necessary was going to the shortcuts menu and assigning the approprate keystrokes01:41
HonestAbenow it appears that the workspace switching is not included by default in the shortcut key menu. If someone could just provide some sort of a helpful link with the appropriate commands to bind, that would be absolutely delightful01:42
ZelouilleHonestAbe: there are two places for settings keystrokes. Workspace keystrokes are in the Window Manager settings.01:50
HonestAbechecking before i say thanks01:51
HonestAbeyou magnificent bastard, thank you01:51
ZelouilleHonestAbe: That's part of the odd things on GNU/Linux. Like setting a theme for the windows, and another one for the window-borders. Because each part is an independent piece of software. Well, that's how I understand it.01:56
HonestAbeIt certainly is bizarre. I'll have to keep it in mind, all of those weird things are so useful to remember.01:57
hasn-tmphello. Running the 12.10 livecd now, and I'm observing strange behavior with the panel and window buttons plugin...02:22
hasn-tmpit seems to cause a 1-pixel shift in the panel when moving from workspaces containing windows to empty workspaces, but only with the plugin handle hidden02:23
Zelouillehasn-tmp: you are right. I experience the same thing on the livecd. I can't test on an installed system. You may want to post a bug report on https://bugzilla.xfce.org02:35
hasn-tmpah,  it has already been reported: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=895302:48
ubottubugzilla.xfce.org bug 8953 in Workspace Switcher "1 pixel offset when the workspace switcher shows an empty workspace" [Minor,New]02:48
rk0nDoes anyone know how to get the panel to keep the clock all the way to the right of the panel?02:55
rk0nI removed some things from the panel and now it moves depending on how many windows I have open02:55
rk0nI want it to keep certain things (clock, tray) to the right, and the app menu to the left02:56
hasn-tmpadd a "Separator" to the panel and set it to expand02:57
rk0nAh, awesome! Thank you!02:57
Zelouillehasn-tmp: maybe you should add a comment to the bug, to say that's not the "workspace switcher" component which is faulty (like said in the bug report), but the "window buttons". There's nothing to do with workspace in fact. Only the window button that doesn't take the same width when it's empty (with handle hidden).03:17
Zelouillerk0n: this is how "window buttons" works since xfce 4.10. There's a line on the Xubuntu 12.10 FAQ about this.03:21
rk0nZelouille: Thank you, I didn't know03:22

WalterNso I set up a PXE server, but when I go to boot the PXE, it says that it failed09:44
WalterNnot sure whats wrong exactly09:46
WalterNthe tftpd-hpa service seems fine (at least it does not complain when I restart it)09:47
koegsWalterN: any error messages or at least config-files?09:54
WalterNkoegs: where would such an error message be?09:55
WalterNon my dd-wrt router, I just have dhcp-boot=pxelinux.0,xubuntu,
WalterNand http://pastebin.com/pmbwUiUh09:56
WalterNfor /etc/default/tftpd-hpa09:57
koegsand your pxelinux.cfg?09:57
WalterNwith the Xubuntu netboot.tar.gz unpackaged in..09:58
WalterNwhere is that file?09:58
WalterNoh, folder09:58
koegsin you /var/lib/tftpboot09:58
koegsit should be /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default09:58

koegsand these files do exist within /var/lib/tftpboot?10:00
WalterNmenu.cfg does, and..10:00
WalterNthe other one does too10:01
koegsthen i would check the syslog and the error messages on your PXE-Client10:03
WalterNJan  9 02:33:34 luna in.tftpd[29245]: tftp: client does not accept options10:05
WalterNwhat does that mean?10:06
koegsplease try TFTP_OPTIONS="-l -s" instead of "--secure"10:06
WalterNrestarting the service..10:07
WalterNlets try booting10:07
WalterNsame error messages on the client and server10:08
WalterNis it because my laptop (the computer I'm trying to PXE boot from) does not support something that it should for a PXE boot?10:10
WalterNhmm, that looks like its a pretty generic error message for PXE booting10:16
koegsWalterN: how did you put the netboot.tar.gz on your server and how did you unpack the files?10:18

WalterNI just removed the debian stuff from that folder and obtained the ubuntu netboot tarball10:20

koegsgot no idea right now10:21
WalterNI wonder if its an issue with how PXE is implemented on the laptop10:22
WalterNdont have a cd/dvd drive in it, so I cant install Xubuntu that way XD10:22
koegsWalterN: USB?10:23
WalterNcould do a USB thumb drive install I suppose10:23
WalterNbut "meh, why bother when I have PXE sitting here"10:23
koegsif it works :P10:23
WalterNwhat was the TFTP_OPTIONS="-l -s" supposed to do in place of --secure?10:24
koegsdunno, it is from my working setup :D10:25
WalterNoh heh10:25
WalterN--secure worked for me before, with the debian thing10:25
koegsi have -l -s on my arm-debian10:25
koegsmaybe it does not matter10:26

xubuntu537hello? anybody online?17:18
raytrayxubuntu537, sup17:19
xubuntu537I just loaded a new version of xunbuntu. Most new programs that I install do not appear in the menus? Can you help?17:20
xubuntu537I was installing Partition editor software, different versions, and most do not show up on the menus or elswhere. This, even though they show that they are installed.17:22
xubuntu537Version 12.04 is what I am using.17:23
xubuntu537Where would the programs load, typically, maybe then I could just type the program in the terminal mode.17:29
baizonxubuntu537: enable it using menu editor (alacarte)17:29
xubuntu537menu editor is in administration or which submenu?17:31
xubuntu537The Menu editor that is in the control center? enable the install there?17:34
baizonxubuntu537: just launch alacarte _)17:36
xubuntu537If I understand you. The programs are installed but maynot be enabled? Right? I need to enter in to the Menu editor an then enable the software that should exist. IS this a progrmmers mistake or error? Or is this normal for all programs? 'Gparted' enabled itself when I loaded the software.17:37
xubuntu537I will need to leave but I will be back. I need to reload my OS. xubuntu537 out for a minute.17:41
xubuntu538Hell. I am now back online and I am inquiring about my new installs. I was unable to find the new installs on my menus. I was asked to go into 'alacarte' and enable them. I have not found this software, yet. Can you assist?17:55
baizonxubuntu538: what did you install?17:55
xubuntu538Where is Alacarte?17:56
koegsxubuntu538: how do you install the software?17:56
baizonxubuntu538: type alt+F2 then type alacarte17:56
koegsbaizon: :P17:56
xubuntu538I view the software from the Ubuntu Software Center. And then I select the software that I would like to install. Partition software for the Harddrive is what I was installing. I install ed many versions of software, even 'Gparted'. I discovered that only, 'Gparted ' was showing on the menus. I installed Xubuntu ver. 12.04.17:59
xubuntu538I am a new user of your Xubuntu software and Linux user.18:00
xubuntu538Can anybody help out in telling me where alacarte is?18:03
baizonxubuntu538: type alt+F2 then type alacarte18:04
xubuntu538OK. I did type ALT F2 and then typed alacarte. Up came the menu editer allowing me to enable menu items. The sofwtare pacjages that I installed are not listed, except for ,Gparted,. Is it possible the software would install but not get listed in alacarte?18:08
baizonxubuntu538: you sure the software is installed?18:09
baizonalt+F2 and "gparted". If it works you got it installed18:09
=== torminator is now known as Guest69611
xubuntu538Well, tahnks for asking. I go to the Software Center and attempt to install the software again and find that the software Center says the software is already installed. So  this tells me the software did get installed but is not showing in the menu.18:11
koegswhich one?18:12
drcxubuntu538: What apps did you install that are <not> showing up; and (from your nick) was this on an installed xubuntu or the live cd (not sure if it makes a difference).  And what version of xubuntu is this.  And what happens is you try looking at the menu thru Main Menu?18:16
xubuntu538OK. 'partition' search for partition 'partclone'. This allows for a user to clone a partition. Exciting software to me but not everybody else. The software does not allow for me to install bt only remove the software. This indicates that the software was installed. In fact I installe the software last night. But it is not listed in the alacarte menu editor.18:17
xubuntu538Xubuntu ver 12.0418:18
koegsxubuntu538: obviously partclone is only a terminal-program18:20
xubuntu538Are terminal programs only runable from the terminal? Or can I insert a routine to run the program from the menu?18:21
drcxubuntu538: Was this app listed in the menu after you installed it last night?18:22
xubuntu538This maybe a dumb question. How can I tell that the program is a terminal program.18:22
koegsxubuntu538: most of them would need parameters, so it is better to open up a terminal18:22
xubuntu538Or terminal progam only.18:23
drcxubuntu538: some terminal apps can be run from the menu (htop is an example) but most don't18:23
drcxubuntu538: And <you> can use alacarte/main-menu to set up a menu item for those that don't18:24
xubuntu538The item was not listed in the menu list, 'alacarte'. Even after I rebooted the OS.18:24
drcxubuntu538: was this on an installed system or a live cd?18:25
xubuntu538This was an installed system, running on a Gateway M285-E Laptop with 100 Gig HD.18:26
xubuntu538This uses an Centrino Duo procesor.18:27
Zelouillexubuntu538: on xubuntu 12.04, sometime I have to refresh the menu, to see new installed applications. I do that by right-click on the xfce menu button > properties > then i choose a "custom menu file", then switch back to the default one.18:29
drcxubuntu538: I agrre with koegs, this looks like a terminal app, so...unless you use this app quite often (enough to justify the effort to make a menu item), I'd just use the terminal.18:33
xubuntu538If it is a teminal application where do I look for the program to manually insert into the menu tree?18:36
baizonxubuntu538: yes, alacarte can do this18:40
drcI start easyL  open a terminal, type the name of the app (partclone>) and see if it's in your path...if it runs from there than all you need to do is type the name of the app when you make the menu item.18:40
drcIf not, I'd look in the /usr tree../ysr/bin. /usr/local/bin...something like that.18:41
drcDog walking time...back later.18:42
xubuntu538OK Zelouille i proceeded as you suggested. The 'partclone' program and others still did not show up. what do you suggest?18:42
koegsxubuntu538: partclone will not show up... never, you have to use the terminal or add it manually18:45
Zelouillexubuntu538: you can add it manually, like koegs said.18:48
xubuntu538OK. I opened the terminal package and 'partclone' is what I typed and 'command not found' error cameup. I do not have a path to the dircetory where the software was installed. Suggestions on where the program would be?18:49
koegsxubuntu538: if you look at the details of partclone in the software center, it will tell you the commands18:52
koegsalso you can try partclone<tab>18:52
Zelouillexubuntu538: try typing "partclone" on the terminal, then pressing "Tab" two times... It will suggest you all the partclone utilities.18:53
xubuntu538Then run a search for the individual file and consequently find the path that way. OK I am still learning the Linux way as opposed to the Gates way.18:54
Zelouillexubuntu538: try "man partclone" too, to see the manual.18:56
xubuntu538The 'man partclone' command exhibited a 'No manual entry for partclone'. Suggestion?18:58

Ronalds_Mcause it beats tha shit out of windows 7 and xp in terms of awesomeness19:08
