xubuntu776Hello ALL! I'm a noob t Linux/Xubuntu, and a bit of help. I've been automatically using qBittorrent. Machine borked...reinstalled Xubuntu. NowTransmissionhas taken over as Only Torrent app! I prefer qBittorrent. A lot. How does one set qBit as default torrent app?00:21
Unit193For one, you can remove transmission, but normally you can right click > open with other application and make it default there.00:23
brainwashstarting with xfce 4.10 there is also the mime type editor to assign a default application to a file type00:26
xubuntu776Thanx Unit193...been wrestling with that for a coupla hours ^_^ In Settings Manager the on app choices/select options are about Mail and Browsers. OPen with doesn't work.00:28
GridCubexubuntu776, uninstall transmission, leave qbittorrent as your only torrent manager00:30
xubuntu776Brainwash thank you too.  do you mean to type "xfce4 - mime - settings " into the terminal?00:31
brainwashit's "xfce4-mime-settings"00:31
brainwashfrom terminal or appfinder (alt+f2)00:32
Unit193Menu > Settings Manager  has it too of course.00:32
brainwashor via click in settings manager :)00:32
xubuntu776Gridcube...now that sounds like something that'll work.00:32
xubuntu776Hold on Hold on I tryin' now!00:33
xubuntu776I'm looking for an easy uninstall move now. Somewhere in Ubuntu Software Center?00:35
GridCubeyes, or simply do sudo apt-get purge transmission-gtk00:36
xubuntu776I've gotta say toothat I played with Linux Live cds for years.Finally XP crashed and burned a month ago. Wiped drive, full install Xubuntu. I REALLY likin' it. Shoulda done this years ago! Just sayin'00:38
brainwashmy XP machine is still runing.. since 2002 :)00:40
xubuntu776Thank you Everyone. Also I'll probably become a visitor here on irc chat. I've mostly been a lurker, not a participant. Again thanx.00:41
xubuntu776Brainwash. Since '02!? Tremendous.00:42
brainwashit used to be my gaming system00:43
brainwashit's pretty impressive, nowadays everyone seems to reinstall ubuntu-based systems on a daily base :D00:45
xubuntu776I've used my Windows boxes as media aquisition, listening/veiwing machines. You get used to stuff. I think I'm enjoying this Linux thing ;>)00:46
brainwashyea, there is so much to discover, so much to learn00:47
brainwashso many possibilities.. and a great community :)00:48
brainwashand finally even some (more) games -> steam00:49
xubuntu776I'd kinda gotten my Xubuntu setup ...ok. Then...WTF. Start over. Next move is learn more about cloning my primary partition/drive. I be around leaning on the expertise here!00:49
xubuntu776I'm seeing...a great community!00:49
seronisQ:   SettingsManager -> WindowManager -> Advanced -> WindowAction   seems to be getting ignored.  I have it set to maximize windows but when double clicking a titlebar the window just blinks and remains unchanged05:16
seronisany suggestions on what might cause that ?05:17
bullgard4seronis: I have no idea about the cause. But please read ~/.xsession-errors for a clue.06:43
xubuntu422After installing an AMD driver for my video card(Trying) and then rebooting my computer my comuter will no longer boot, it will only bring up a shell prompt, how do I get into linux?08:27
ubottuxubuntu422,: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter08:28
well_laid_lawnsounds like there's no xorg.conf for the ati driver to read - you can log into the tty and check the X log08:29
xubuntu422How do I create or download the xlog?08:30
xubuntu422with !nomodeset I get "event not found"08:32
well_laid_lawnthere should be an app called   ati-config   you can run from the tty08:32

IvarBhi, how do I fix my panels so that the stuff I put on them dont disappear between logins?10:06

ochosiIvarB: panel plugins etc are stored in the home directory in the .config/xfce4/panel folder11:13
ochosiIvarB: check there whether there's a problem or maybe you're running out of disc-space11:14

nicetrynsa_I'm having trouble installing xubuntu on my HDD.  I've got some unallocated space on a second HDD which is not showing up in the installer.  Any idea on how to get it to do so?16:31
holsteini would test the hardware, and see that the bios sees it16:32
nicetrynsa_It does16:32
nicetrynsa_The HDD shows up, but unallocated space doesn't to Xubuntu16:32
holsteinnicetrynsa_: you see it in the terminal if you run "sudo fdisk -l" ?16:33
nicetrynsa_This is the output I get: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5755388/16:34
holsteinnicetrynsa_: i see 3 devices there.. is the hard drive in question one of those?16:35
nicetrynsa_I'm assuming.  I'm running it (right not) off a USB stick, I have two hard drives (one with Win8, the other is the one in question)16:36
holsteinnicetrynsa_: i would do whatever you need to make sure you are *not* assuming anything.. but if you see the hard drive there, then xubuntu *is* seeing it16:37
nicetrynsa_But not the unallocated space16:37
nicetrynsa_It sees the drive as a whole, when I know that there is ~127gb unallocated16:37
holsteinnicetrynsa_: i would go on a partition.. make an ext4 partition and swap and just use them16:38
gits1225Which is the xfce version in xubuntu 12.04 LTS?16:41
nicetrynsa_The installer isn't letting me do anything to the drive16:42
holsteinnicetrynsa_: sure.. i would manually create the partitions i need before using the installer16:42
nicetrynsa_Using fdisk?16:42
holsteinnicetrynsa_: i use gparted16:42
holstein!info xfce16:43
ubottuPackage xfce does not exist in raring16:43
holsteinTheSheep: do you know what version?16:44
TheSheep!info xfce416:44
ubottuxfce4 (source: xfce4): Meta-package for the Xfce Lightweight Desktop Environment. In component universe, is optional. Version 4.10.0 (raring), package size 4 kB, installed size 31 kB16:44

holsteingits1225: i see xfce4 in my ubuntu 12.04 installation16:45
gits1225ty holstein16:45
holsteinnicetrynsa_: i would test and wipe that drive, and repartition it for an installation, then run the partitioner16:46
holsteinnicetrynsa_: xubuntu *is* seeing it.. so is gparted..16:46
gits1225nicetrynsa_, did you start gparted with super user permissions?16:47
gits1225When you try to delete the partition, what does it say?16:47
holsteinnicetrynsa_: i would be using gparted from a live CD16:47
nicetrynsa_I am on a live usb16:47
holsteinnicetrynsa_: share the error message that gits1225 is seeking16:48
nicetrynsa_not getting any error message when I try to delete it16:48
holsteinnicetrynsa_: what is happening then?16:48
nicetrynsa_I have absolutely no clue16:49
gits1225Can you show a screenshot after you try to delete a partition?16:49
nicetrynsa_yeah, 1 sec16:49
gits1225Something went wrong I guess16:54

Guest55375hello, has anybody tried to install instalation cd of xubuntu 13.04 on usb? I tried with unetbootin, but system want to start from usb. When i tried ver 12.10 , no problems..18:23
holsteinGuest55375: whats the issue?18:27
Guest55375notebook want to boot , when i make bootable usb from iso image xubuntu 13.0418:28
Guest55375but , when i make bootable usb from 12.10 iso,  no problem to boot live cd..18:29
holsteinGuest55375: i have booted 13.04 using a live CD usb stick make with unetbootin.. whats the issue?18:30
Guest55375which version of unetbootin?18:30
Guest55375i think, that is problem in iso, which i downloaded, where can i fing md5 sum?18:31
holsteinGuest55375: various versions.. the stock one in the 12.04 repos as of recent.. what is the issue for you? what fails? how? what error messages? are you able to boot to the live CD?18:31
ubottuTo verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows18:31
Guest55375ok , i tried  md5sum.exe, it writes FAILED open or read18:35
Guest55375to many files, it means, that iso was wrong downloaded?18:36
holsteinGuest55375: no18:36
holsteinGuest55375: it means just what it said.. "failed to open or read"18:36
holsteinGuest55375: i usually just generate an md5 of the iso, and compare to the one on the site18:37
Guest55375C:\Users\asus\Downloads>md5sum.exe -c xubuntu-13.04-desktop-i386.iso md5sum.exe:     101 restricted/binary-i386/Release: No such file or directory     101 restricted/binary-i386/Release: FAILED open or read md5sum.exe:    1524 restricted/binary-i386/Packages.gz: No such file or director y18:37
Guest55375and in the end "md5sum.exe: WARNING: 65 of 65 listed files could not be read"18:38
holsteinGuest55375: you'll need to install an md5 sum generator.. you'll point it to the iso file, it'll give you a sum.. you compare that sum18:38
holsteinGuest55375: you are talkming about the md5sum.exe file though18:39
holsteinGuest55375: you are not doing it correctly.. you'll install an md5 sum generator.. for windows, since i assume you are in windows18:39
Guest55375md5 checksums are different :D18:42
Guest55375how is it posible, i downloaded via torrent..18:42
holsteinGuest55375: so, thats a great place to start.. i would re download the iso, and go from there18:42
Guest55375i can download alternate iso, what is it?18:43
ubottuThe alternate CD has been discontinued for the main Ubuntu distro, please use and report any bugs in the !LiveCD18:44
holsteinGuest55375: ^^ i would just try another mirror.. try direct18:44
Guest55375ok, thanks everybody for help :)18:45
mbertenshi all, i have a silly problem, i have a ASRock AD2550-ITX mb with intel PowerVR SGX545. installing xubuntu goes very well but when it starts for the first time the xwindows display configuration is wrong. When i perform X -configure, i'll get an error that the number of devices mismatches the number of monitors. i hacked the xorg.conf file to get the display working but i have only one resolution and only one screen. How do i get a proper working xor19:50

WeberEIncHello - Am I correct in understanding that the current version of Xubuntu no longer fits on a CD-ROM?  I was hoping to use it as a replacement for older machines which still work but may not have a DVD player....20:16
Sysiyou can use newest LTS 12.0420:16
Sysiif they won't boot from USB20:16
WeberEIncSysi: Yes, they won't boot from USB, but moving forward from 12.04, will they always be bigger than a CD from now on?20:17
holsteinWeberEInc: the current one says its bigger.. i wouldnt imagine it getting smaller20:18
holstein!minimal | WeberEInc20:18
ubottuWeberEInc: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want.  The installer is text based (rather than graphical as used on the Desktop DVD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD20:18
holsteinyou can always use that and add what you like.. or roll your own live CD's20:18
Sysithe issues that make the CD big should disappear at some point though20:18
