Aknotand how do i install themes13:06
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)13:07

Guest66258Will Hand Brake work on Xubuntu18:35
arkanabarif it's in the repos, I would think so.18:35
arkanabarlet me see just what handbrake is...18:36
Guest66258Video file ripper18:36
Guest66258How secure is Xubuntu from hacks and viruses18:38
arkanabarlike any OS, if you install them, you get them.18:39
ubottuAntivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus18:40
arkanabarkeep your system up to date, don't fool around with flash or pdf too much, and you're unlikely to get hacked.18:40
arkanabarAt least you don't have the giant gaping hole that is "run ActiveX Objects" that Internet Explorer has...18:41
Guest66258Thanks for answering my questions18:41
arkanabarnot a problem.  as for handbrake, it's not in the main repos, but I bet if you google "install handbrake ubuntu" you'll find a ppa or something.18:42
sl33pi got a file on my computer and i need help finding out if its threatening or not19:46
knomethreatening to what?19:46
sl33pto my computer? tmp/ssh-DgevQKNx2104$ is the directory file agent.210419:47
Unit193Nope, that's fine.  I have it too and it's used by ssh agent.19:48
JDudeHi can someone offer a little help as to why my live usb installation is giving me a "no operating system found" error.19:48
Unit193Sounds more to me like it's not booting from the USB.19:48
sl33pno i had it installed on a usb then installed to the harddrive19:49
drcIf I had to make a guess, I'd guess that you placed GRUB somewhere it's not looking.19:50
JDudeI reformat the usb to ms-dos(FAT) use unetbootin to install the 32bit xubunutu.iso, go into the bios and place the usb above the hdd on boot priorities, and when it reads the usb, it says "no operating system found"19:50
JDudekeep in mind, I'm a little new to liinux. I've been on a mac for a while19:51
JDudebut im not using the usb on my mac, i got a new samsung laptop.19:51
JDudedrc: i didn't physically place GRUB anywhere. should I have? I just used unetbootin19:52
drcJDude: I was talking to sl33p19:53
JDudedrc: oh my bad.19:53
sl33pdrc i dont think i manually installed GRUB19:53
drcJDude: But in your case, I'd first try reinstalling to the usb...19:54
drcsl33p: what install option did you choose?19:54
sl33plike, what do you mean specifically drc19:55
drcJDude: I've had the same thing happen to me, and re-installing to the usb often helps.19:55
JDudedrc: yeah, I did that like five times with three different linux distros... don't know what's going wrong.19:55
sl33pdrc: i tried to vim/nano this file and i just get errors im not even sure what type of file this agent.2104 is19:55
drcsl33p: when you installed to the hdd, did you choose 1) replace, along side, 3) something else?19:55
sl33palong side19:56
sl33pbecause i also have windows partition19:56
JDudeanyone running osx 10.8 here? I'm getting weird behavior with unetbootin and am wondering if it is normal19:56

neolithHello everyone, has anybody encountered an odd video glitch when watching youtube using chrome in which only the video (not the commercial) plays with hundreds of various colors that looks like pixel based "static" (Hard to describe but have screen shots) this occurs no where else on pages that use flash21:59
petra89I have got only  problem hal.dll error21:59
jhansonxineolith:  Google found: http://www.ubuntuvibes.com/2012/07/how-to-fix-rendering-issues-in-google.html22:02
petra89How can I grub uninstall | or how can I make on first partition  FAT3222:03
petra89chfdisk is a good choice?22:04
petra89I did this manuall but I have got hal.dll error ....22:05
jhansonxipetra89: Also http://www.komku.org/2008/11/install-windows-xp-using-usb-flash-disk.html22:05
neolithjhansonxi thank you I will give that a try... rendering, that's the word I needed!22:06
petra89Thank you jhansonxi. I used the same22:09
jhansonxipetra89: If you can boot the XP setup, try a boot repair22:12
petra89Yes I tried it but not good because I can see only usb partition.22:13
petra89I tried fixmbr command22:14
petra89nothing happened22:14
petra89so I can't see my 160GB harddrive22:15
jhansonxipetra89: It may need a driver for the IDE/SATA controller.  The XP setup prompts for installing one during setup.22:16
petra89yes perhaps , but how can I do to start setup.. only error with file: hall.dll.22:18
jhansonxiThe XP setup won't start?22:19
petra89I start the 1. only text mode this mode start windows xp setup but I see only usb in xp partition table.22:21
petra89if I try 2. gui setup mode than I come the error message : hall.dll22:22
petra89than only choice the restart22:22
jhansonxipetra89: You could try wiping the entire hard drive with a secure drive eraser utility.  That would eliminate Grub and everything else.22:23
neolithjhansonxi thank you very much, that was the ticket, much obliged!22:24
petra89yes cuold you give me soem help how can eliminate Grub ? :)22:26
jhansonxipetra89: The XP fixboot option is the only way I know of to replace the Grub boot loader with the XP bootloader.  If that doesn't work then erasing the entire drive is the only other option I know of.22:27
petra89Ok thanks a lot . I have got an other idee that I try to install lilo and than try to boot xp22:28
arkanabarpetra89, LILO is infamously difficult to remove from MBR.22:35

j1mcoh, i guess it's not in ubuntu. https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ms-sys/+question/2834922:41
