mavenHi I00:05
mavenI am using xubuntu 12.04.2 now. And there are two panels by default. The panel1(contains the application menu) is positioned at the top of the screen . Any idea to move it to the bottom?00:06
GridCubemaven, right clic >panel >panel settings: uncheck block panel, drag panel from the borders to the bottom, left, right, or middle of the screen, block it again00:12
mavenGridCube, It worked. Thank you.00:17
GridCubemaven, :D you are welcome00:17
mavenBTW, I have some new fonts to be installed. I copy them (*.ttf) to the ~/.fonts.  But it seems that this does not work. Did I miss anything?00:18
GridCubeno, that should work00:18
mavenI have tried to logout and login again. But when I try to set the font in the terminal. I can find the added fonts in the font select dialog.00:20
GridCubewhat do you mean by "set the font in the terminal"?00:21
GridCubefonts in the terminal works differently00:21
GridCubewell, http://www.x.org/archive/X11R6.8.0/doc/fonts2.html00:22
mavenEdit-Preference  At the appearance tab. I can not set the font.00:22
GridCubewell, i can, try using the guest session and see if you add a new font to it if it will work, if it does you have some missconfiguration somewhere00:24
mavenThanks, I will have a try.00:25
pleia2they probably need to run: fc-cache -f00:30
mavenIt works after a reboot. :)00:32
maven:(. The new fonts appeared in the font select dialog. But when I select it. I got unreadable characters in the preview window. http://snag.gy/eE97w.jpg00:41
GridCubeits a broken font probably, consolas ain't a free font00:42
mavenHi can I set the dimension of the Terminal ?01:52
GridCubemaven, man xfce4-terminal01:52
mavenI know I can use the `xfce-terminal --geometry=140x25` to open the terminal with a specified size. However this just works for a launcher. And there are several methods to open a terminal like `Application-accessories-terminal` or `open terminal here(context menu)`.  How to make the geometry works for all the teriminal window?01:58
mavenDone.  Modify the file `~/.config/Terminal/terminalrc`02:54
Noskcajthe 13.04 release is nearly here. if anyone is willing to helo the testing team let me know and i will help you join06:38
kokahi, I need install wifi drivers, I had dowloaded realtek drivers and I have a file named install.sh I tried to type in the terminal sh install.sh but show an error07:14
moetuneskoka:  what's the error?07:21
Gumbykoka: try either chmod +x install.sh; ./install.sh  OR try sh install.sh07:24
Gumbyalthough as moetunes suggests, let the channel know the error :)07:25

bigalthanks. I agree, but I am in front of the installation screen (no more alt install since 12.10). I have 2 empty identical hd...08:00
bigalthe only option I have here in the graphical installation (in 12.10, but not in 12.04) is "new partition table"08:00
bigalI am selection the whole disk08:00
bigalfor a partition and then I am adding the fs type dimensione etc...08:00
bigaland there in the list of fs type there should be "physical volume for RAID" but there is not... mumble mumble...08:01
MCHammerhey there08:48
cfhowlettMCHammer, yo08:48
MCHammeri've got a problem with my application-preferences. in some programs i always need to start it with sudo to save preferences (i.e. sublime-text). another issue is, that positions of applications aren't saved on the workspace they where. after a restart everything is messed up (this somehow gets influenced by direct shutdown or logging out first)08:51
MCHammercan anybody help me with that?08:51
MCHammeri guess i have to add some groups/rights to my user, but i'm into that stuff :/08:54

MCHammeri guess i could make my user a sudo-user (do i have your attention now? ;) )09:56
knomeMCHammer, blackmailing is not appropriate. besides, adding your user to the sudo group is fine.09:57
francachHi, I'm new to xubuntu and I'd like to use a umts stick modem. Is there a application I can use for this?10:08
jcfpfrancach: normal network config has a 'mobile broadband' section10:53
francachHi, thnx for the reply. The thing is the modem is not automatically seen like it would be under windows. So I don't know how to tell the system to configure and run the modem for an internet connection.11:21
MCHammerknome, do you understand concept of smileys?11:29
knomeMCHammer, yes.11:29
MCHammeryou're not good with humans, eh?11:32
bazhangMCHammer, this is the support channel11:37
knomeMCHammer, unless you can ask for support without joking about things that might severly break your (or other peoples system), i'd advise you to seek support from other channels11:37
knomeor other mediums, like forums or askubuntu. i'm sure the jokes in question aren't tolerated in them either11:38
jcfpfrancach: depends on the device, some need extra software such as wader-core before they are recognised11:49
jcfpfrancach: what device are you using (lsusb output?)11:54

cha0sHey all! I checked this out: http://wiki.xfce.org/dev/howto/panel_plugins and I was hoping maybe someone could point me towards something easier if I wanted to write a custom panel item? ;)16:28
cha0sOr is that all we have at the moment?16:28
cha0sWhat I would really love is a JavaScript API for hacking these things quickly, if one doesn't exist I might consider throwing something together16:30
baizoncha0s: xfce panel are written in C and GTK216:30
baizonyou cant write it in JavaScript16:30
cha0sbaizon, well we can use V8, and I'd think (though I'm not sure) that you could probably use C++/GTK16:30
baizoncha0s: http://wiki.xfce.org/dev/howto/panel_plugins16:31
cha0sbaizon, I linked that originally! I am aware of that API ;)16:31
baizonou ok16:31
baizonsorry didnt saw that16:31
baizonGTK isnt C++, its C16:31
cha0sI was wondering if anyone knew of any work built on this API to make hacking them easier/faster16:31
baizoncha0s: the best channel for this question would be #xfce-dev16:32
cha0sbaizon, thanks I will pay a visit :)16:32
baizonthere are all xfce devs, so they should help16:32
baizonno problem16:32
