myscithamanwhich adober flash do i need for xubuntu?00:06
GeissTGenerally, the Linux one for your architecture (32 or 64 bit)00:11
myscithamanlook on the following website, please check drop down list, isnt one of those good for xubuntu?  http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/00:11
GeissTXubuntu is Linux yes? Then choose the linux one.00:12
GeissTAPT is your preferred.00:12
myscithamanthank you00:12
knomewell the preferred one is from the repositories00:12
GeissTknome: Agreed, but as myscithaman asked about the website I thought it best to point him/her there. 'sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer' will work too myscithaman00:16
myscithamanknome, how do i get my firefox to run all kinds of vids and java and well, be media friendly?  I am testing out this xubuntu, and it looks great, but it just crached the software center and said there is no flash plugin.00:16
xubuntu541hi, I'm having troubles with my time setting on the top panel of my xubuntu. I go into time and date and set the time with my password and everything, but it always wants to go back an hour the next time I log in. In other words, it won't stay set. How do I fix it?00:17
myscithamanthanks, i'll do that one00:17
GeissTxubuntu541 have you tried any solutions from here? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=185835400:17
GeissTSometimes the GUI can be a little clanky :)00:18
knomemyscithaman, i would suggest installing the "xubuntu-restricted-extras" package00:18
knomemyscithaman, that will install the flash plugin as well as other things you might want, like an mp3 codec00:18
xubuntu541no   o.k. this site will help with my time setting?00:18
GeissTxubuntu541: It should do, if not we can try something else.00:19
xubuntu541o.k. I'll try it  thanks00:19
GeissTYou're welcome00:19
myscithamancntrl alt T doesnt work :-(00:21
myscithamanwhat is going to make it work ? :(00:21
myscithamanoh, super t yaya, something new :)00:22
GeissTxubuntu541: if that didn't work, this can also be a solution (http://askubuntu.com/questions/232592/xubuntu-12-04-wrong-time-change-system-language)00:24
xubuntu541o.k. so at that site, they say to go to time and date and let it load up the internet connection for setting the time. Is that o.k. on xubuntu?00:27
xubuntu541bazhang  are you saying "sure" to me?00:29
myscithamanxubuntu is pretty good, but the restricted extras still did not let the cnn play the vid00:36
SunStartry installing totem and all its extras, rhythembox n its extras n vvlc00:49
SunStarone of those should fix it00:49
knomemost probably not.00:52
lderanis there a way to stop notifications from appearing on both my screens?00:53
knomepleia2, look at the same url00:54
knomepleia2, re: bar/session photo, you can decide00:54
knomeoops :)00:55
star5gyhujklp9i8i was using a 32 bit on 64 amd 64 bit system lol no wonder everything wasnt working right i have amd 64 bit copy of xubuntu 12.10 now i have audio and my docky is working right02:00
ballIs docky the poppy-up thing at the bottom of my screen?02:01
ballIs there a way to permanently remove that?02:01
lderanhover over it02:02
lderanright click and remove from panel, when you're hovering over the grey bit02:02
star5gyhujklp9i8all you have to do go to software center to delete it  i think02:03
lderanor not, weird02:03
ballCan I make the whole panel go away and never come back?02:03
pleia2ball: under panel preferences the big red - sign is to remove it02:04
lderanah ha found it02:04

star5gyhujklp9i8plz tell me are they going to fix the error in raring ringtail xubuntu when youadd files to k3b02:06
Unit193ball: It's Xubuntu, but it's only using the xfce4-panel.02:07
* ball nods02:07
ballSomeone probably finds it useful.  Not everyone uses computers the way I do.02:07
Unit193star5gyhujklp9i8: No idea, k3b is a KDE application, so you could just the Kubuntu release notes too when it's released.02:07
Unit193ball: Indeed, indeed.  Everyone (should) have their own setup instructions. :)02:08
star5gyhujklp9i8i love xubuntu 12.1002:08
star5gyhujklp9i8raring ringtail is just a maintence os02:08
ballI don't even know what version this is.  It's getting wiped tonight but I'll probably install it on another disk in the same computer.02:08
ballI'm doing some disk-juggling02:09
star5gyhujklp9i8i dont do that . im happy with my hp 6 dandelion breeze02:10

sudoair_anyone care to help a noob04:29
holsteinsudoair_: just ask, and see if a volunteer can help04:29
sudoair_ok, so i'm trying to install xubuntu but my wired connection doesn't connect, it just keeps trying and then tells me its disconnected04:30
sudoair_so i'm trying to follow some of the fixes on here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=196846904:30
holsteinsudoair_: do you want to install? or connect the live CD to the internet?04:30
sudoair_i've already installed04:31
holsteinsudoair_: i woulnt necessarily do both04:31
sudoair_without internet04:31
holsteinsudoair_: ok.. so, youa re *not* trying to install xubuntu then, correct?04:31
holsteinsudoair_: you *have* already installed?04:31
holsteinsudoair_: ok.. and the wired network is not working?04:31
holsteinsudoair_: are you sure the hardware is functional?04:31
sudoair_well, it has worked in the past04:32
holsteinsudoair_: if you "hit a wall" with this, you might want to confirm the hardware is functional04:32
holsteinsudoair_: have you checked the bios to see if its disabled there? open a terminal and run "lspci" and see if you see the NIC04:32
sudoair_i see PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller04:33
holsteinsudoair_: do you have another way to connect that is working?04:34
sudoair_no, all i have is a usb wireless adapter and it does not work without some effort04:34
sudoair_as in, getting ndiswrapper and some drivers04:35
sudoair_the ethernet was working just a couple hours ago04:35
sudoair_when i accidently installed the 32bit version of xubuntu04:35
sudoair_and now that i've installed the 64 bit, it no longer works04:35
sudoair_i was going to try http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1968469 post #504:35
holsteinsudoair_: if this is a fresh install, i would just go back to the 32bit.. though, its likely you did 32bit one version and 64 another04:36
sudoair_but i can't install gedit04:36
holsteinsudoair_: you can use nano instead of gedit04:36
holsteinsudoair_: just install the 32bit...04:36
holsteinsudoair_: if you want to try that "fix", use nano04:37

semitoneshello peeps16:56
semitoneshey you gusy16:56
semitonesI am thinking of switching to xubuntu on my slowish laptop16:56
semitonesand I've heard16:56
Cheri703semitones: ! welcome :) I've made the switch myself, a few months ago16:57
semitonesin the olden times, that xubuntu was slower than ubuntu. Is this still the case?16:57
semitonesCheri703, hey cool!!!16:57
Cheri703I've found it the same or faster16:57
bazhangif its really slow then lubuntu would be a better fit semitones16:57
semitonesWhat would be really cool is if I could install both lubuntu and xubuntu, and try them out.16:58
semitonesbut I don't know a good way of removing the DE cleanly16:58
semitonesCheri703, not a bad idea :D16:58
semitonesi think i'll try that16:58
ubottuIf you want to remove all !KDE and !Gnome packages and have a default !Xubuntu system follow the instructions here « http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purexfce »16:58
Cheri703bazhang: that so does not work16:58
Cheri703at least it NEVER has for me16:59
bazhangor purelxde16:59
bazhangCheri703, thats odd it works just fine here16:59
semitonesbazhang, thanks16:59
Cheri703semitones: on my primary computer I always do upgrades/switches on separate partitions, I can move stuff over at my leisure, and if it freaks out? I just boot back to the other one :)16:59
semitonesCheri703, that's cool -- I used to try keeping my /home separate, and just migrating it over to brand new installs,17:00
semitonesbut I never was very comfortable with the permissions transferring over17:00
semitonesi don't think I knew enough to do it right :p17:00
Cheri703I don't bother with that, I have symlinks to my dropbox (formerly ubuntu one til it ate stuff) and then it will all sync to one spot and everything can see it. :)17:00
Cheri703only on things that won't poop themselves due to new versions though17:01

drcQuick Question:  What happens if, after using the Additional Drivers on 12.04 to install the Nvidia driver (iirc 310.14), one wanted to install a later driver (say 310.44 from the nvidia website, which installs and runs perfectly on Slackware, Salix and Debian) ?17:31

drcfowlslegs: Like bazhang said, there are better places to ask about this (it's really depending on your hardware), but you might ask the question based on whether you actually need to edit the BIOS or just change some settings.17:50
