Noskcajis there a remote access program in xubuntu?00:17
ChaserNoskcaj, for RDP ? there is remmina for remote desktop client.00:25
NoskcajChaser, ok, ty00:28
David-ANoskcaj: for SSH there is openssh-server00:29
David-ANoskcaj: an alternative to remmina is vinagre00:30
Unit193And remmina uses rdesktop or freerdp as a backend.  Pretty sure Vinagre comes by default.00:31
Noskcajok, thanks guys. when my install finishes i'll look into those00:36
David-ANoskcaj: I also think vinagre is installed by default. just look in the menu for Network>Remote Desktop Viewer00:38
rmarkerhow  do i get dvd decryption?04:56

baizonthere you just chose the right deb file16:20
aienai chse the right file I tried it16:21
harviaiena: grofract have .deb package. see http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnofract4d/16:22
aienait opens up the ubuntu software center as gives a dependency is not satisfied python <2.716:22
aienabaizon: that mode does not work16:22
aienaI tried to figure out the dependency16:22
aienapython is installed16:22
aienaand it is 2.7 I think16:23
baizonaiena: have you tried sudo apt-get install -f16:23
aienaI'll try16:23
harvior try to download this. http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnofract4d/files/gnofract4d/3.12/gnofract4d-python26_3.12-1ubuntu1_i386.deb/download16:23
baizonharvi: why using an old version?16:24
aienabaizon: I tried sudo apt-get install gnofract4d_3.14.1_amd64.deb -f16:24
baizonof course, if hes using xubuntu older than 12.04 that would make sense then16:24
aienaafter cding to the directory16:24
baizonaiena: i didnt wrote that16:25
aienacd 'ing16:25
baizonwrite sudo apt-get install -f16:25
harvidamn.. thats 3.12 ..sry my bad16:25
aienaouch I thought xubuntu 12.04 comes with python 2.x16:25
baizondoes it want to remove the  gnofract4d pkg?16:26
aienaseems like itys updated to 3.2 (:16:26
baizonaiena: it also have python2.716:26
aienabaizon: it said 3.2 was installed16:26
harviit has python 2.7.3 but gnofract want 2.616:26
aienabut is not needed16:26
aienaharvi: yes16:26
baizonaiena: yes, http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/python2.716:26
aienabaizon: IS IT POSSIBLE TO DOWNGRADE TO 2.6.X16:27
aienasorry for the caps16:27
baizonaiena: what gave the install -f command?16:27
baizonwhat was the result?16:27
aienabaizon http://pastebin.com/QiFxrZTm16:28
baizonaiena: ok try then: 1. cd to the  gnofract4d_3.14.1_amd64.deb file, 2. run sudo dpkg -i gnofract4d_3.14.1_amd64.deb, 3. run sudo apt-get install -f16:30
harvibaizon: how about using .....  sudo dpkg -i --force-all <package>16:31
baizonharvi: or this, yes16:31
aienabaizon: If I run harvi's command is it safe ?16:32
baizonaiena: if this doesnt work, show the result in pastebin please16:32
aienain that case step 3 will not be needed right16:32
baizonaiena: yes16:32
harviaiena: it is the same think.16:32
harvii saw few posts but I havent find solution for this :/ ... but maybe downgrading python will work. Some of them tried to install 2 python versions in diferent folders with symlinks but it doesnt work16:34
aienabaizon it failed here is the second command output http://pastebin.com/CzXdmsTHon running sudo apt-get install -fit ask me to remove gnofract16:35
baizonaiena: wrong pastebin url16:35
aienaon running sudo apt-get install -f it ask me to remove gnofract16:36
baizonaiena: well then install python 2.616:36
baizonaiena: install it from here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/125342/how-can-i-install-python-2-6-on-12-0416:37
harvihmm.. downgrade python to 2.6 and install libjpeg62 too16:37
aienaso shoud I say yes to the output of sudo apt-get install -f16:37
baizonaiena: then try again16:37
aienabaizon: should I say yes to http://pastebin.com/xt9CvFmS before proceeding to downgrade to 2.6 ?16:38
baizonaiena: yes16:39
aienathat would automatically install libjpeg62 for me16:39
baizonaiena: yes, thats ok16:39
aienaI know16:39
harviyes remove gnofract and libjpeg62 you dont need to install because it will be installed automatically16:39
baizonaiena: then add the python 2.6 ppa, install python 2.6 and try again the 3 steps i wrote (or 2 harvi wrote)16:40
aienaBaizon same errors are coming !! I ran sudo-apt-get install -f to cleanup16:49

kAworu_hi !20:28
=== kAworu_ is now known as kAworu
kAworuI've just installed xubuntu (12.10) and it works like a charm (I'm even able to run i3 as wm which is kind of incredible).20:28
kAworuNow I have a very simple problem. When thunar is mounting my external hdd (two ext4 partitions) I cannot write.20:30
kAworuThey're not mounted ro they just seems to have been mounted by root20:31
holstein!chown | kAworu20:39
ubottukAworu: An explanation of what file permissions are and how they can be manipulated can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions20:39
holsteinhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingANewHardDrive specifically the parts about permissions20:40
Poisoned_DragonDoes anyone have a firm understanding of the composting features of xfce?20:45
kAworuholstein: thanks20:46
holsteinPoisoned_Dragon: AFAIK, its software compositing... meaning you dont need special hardware/drivers20:48
Poisoned_Dragonheh, I should have been more specific from the start. It's not a question about hardware or drivers.20:49
Poisoned_DragonI have an issue with running java apps on xfce while composting is on.20:49
holsteinPoisoned_Dragon: just turn it off...20:50
holsteinPoisoned_Dragon: you can try other java versions.. but, yeah, you could run into issues20:51
Poisoned_DragonUgh... I was hoping that "turn it off" wasn't going to be the only solution. I'm using openjdk 7 jre. it happens in java 6 and 7.20:52
kAworuholstein: it worked indeed. I did not expect it to work because the /media/myuser/bla directories are created when auto-mounted and deleted when umounted20:55
Poisoned_Dragonwell yea. That's what gvfs-mount does20:55
kAworuholstein: may I ask which process is responsible for this auto-mounting magic ?20:56
holsteingvfs i though ^^20:56
kAworuholstein: That was my first guess too but it seems that all the gvfs process (my god there are so many) are running under myuser20:58
Poisoned_Dragonyeah, gvfs20:58
Poisoned_Dragonare we talking about removable drives?20:58
kAworuPoisoned_Dragon: yes20:59
Poisoned_DragonYou can disable auto-mounting in the settings manager, under removable devices20:59
kAworuPoisoned_Dragon: thanks for the info, but I am not trying to prevent auto mounting21:00
kAworuI'm just trying to understand.21:00
Poisoned_DragonOh, ok. Just wanted to know how it worked.21:00
Poisoned_Dragonwell, outside of the system doing it for me, I can use gvfs-mount, in terminal to manually add and remove mounts.21:01
Poisoned_DragonLess messy than making a directory and using mount.21:01
kAworuPoisoned_Dragon: my original problem is already solved (thank to holstein's hint about chown), however the solution surprise me so I'm trying to understand.21:01
Poisoned_Dragonchown? doesn't that change ownerships?21:02
kAworuPoisoned_Dragon: yes. It seems that if you chown a directory auto-mounted by gvfs, say /media/myuser/usbdrive0 it will be preserved accross mounts / reboot21:02
kAworuPoisoned_Dragon: although the directory itself will be removed when umounted.21:03
Poisoned_DragonI think the runlevel of gvfs allows it to make changes regardless of permissions.21:03
kAworu(I come from FreeBSD and those magic tricks make me curious ;)21:04
Poisoned_DragonThe closest experience I have to some level of BSD is Mac OSX. By that point, you rarely get to see what's behind the gui.21:05
Poisoned_Dragonok, holstein. Here's the specifics to my problem. It seems that java apps, that place a notification icon in the notifications tray, create a graphical glitch in the upper left hand corner of the screen, while composting is enabled.21:08
Poisoned_Dragonjava apps that don't use the notification tray, don't exhibit this kind of graphical behavior.21:08
kAworuPoisoned_Dragon, holstein: alright, if you care here is how the auto-mount magic works:21:23
kAworuthunar use gvfs-mount, which use udevd through DBUS21:24
kAworuudisksd sorry, not udevd.21:24
