zimzum_ hi, does anyone know how to increase the window border size in Xubuntu?01:58
Unit193zimzum_: If I remember correctly, that's more theme based.02:09
zimzum_Unit193, ah well -- tried some other built in themes and the borders were all the same size afai can tell02:18
zimzum_do you know what folder the themes are stored in?02:19
Unit193/usr/share/themes/ and ~/.themes/  I may be remembering quite wrong.02:24
zimzum_you got it02:27
Unit193(Wrong on the borders, gtk-theme-editor may help.)02:28
zimzum_okay, I'll try and see what I can find02:30

SoPHi guys, I am about to install xubuntu on my laptop after buying an SSD11:12
SoPI still have a hard drive in my second drive bay, so i was wondering how i should divide the partitions...11:13
SoPRight now i have a 200MB boot and 50 GB root partition on my ssd11:13
baizonSoP: i have root and /home on my ssd11:13
baizonmy media is on HDD11:14
SoPand /home (400 gigs) on my hdd11:14
baizonSoP: how big is your ssd?11:15
SoPMy ssd is only 64GB, so i supposed it would be better to put /home entirely on the hard drive11:15
SoPbut I was wondering about /usr/local, /var and /tmp?11:15
baizonSoP: well it depends. I got a 40GB SSD and both root and home are on it11:15
SoPbaizon, (for me) i believe 40 gigs of /home wont be enough11:17
baizonSoP: well all my configurations from home are on the SSD. The other "big" stuff is on the HDD11:17
baizoni got it mounted into /home/user/Media11:18
SoPI see, thats a good idea11:18
baizonbecause when you put home on your hdd programs will start fast but they need to read/write cache/config which will get slow because they have to access the HDD11:19
baizonA question... There is a icon which pops up when some additional things have to be done, for example when installing flash/dropbox etc. Where can i find information about it? I want to write a script which activates this information icon.11:28
NewbieLinuxHi is this where I could get some assitance with xubuntu?11:30
NewbieLinuxIts relating to a "hdd:0 out of disk" error at boot11:31
baizonNewbieLinux: you can ask here or on #ubuntu11:31
Sysibaizon: "xwininfo" might tell11:31
NewbieLinuxOk thanks baizon11:33
NewbieLinuxSo its alright I explain my problem here to you?11:33

rajuneed help about binding separate /home to a fresh install  Xubuntu System.11:57
baizonraju: yes, and the problem is?12:03
rajubaizon, fresh system not taking /home as a home place12:04
baizonraju: have you formatted it and set the filesystem?12:04
rajuno , its a separate home partition and from my old ubuntu system12:05
Sysiraju: check UUID with "sudo blkid" if you know the partition and add it to /etc/fstab12:05
rajuit's moung with out any problem .  Sysi  but the problem is how can makde my system to use /home as its home partition .12:07
Sysiby mounting the partition to /home12:08
rajuok i will try12:09
Sysiif you want to use the old user's home folder you need to have same username and maybe chown files to new user if the id is different12:09
rajuoh no , here they are different :(12:10
Sysiwell, you can copy files12:11
rajuyou mean from /home to new home ?12:12
Sysifrom old user's folder to new user12:13
rajugot it :)12:13
Sysimoving with mv would probably work better though12:13
rajuthank you :) Sysi12:14

SoP(for which I didn't find the answer by googling)15:18
PiciJust ask.15:18
SoPWhen i want cron to do a certain job every day, but my pc is off when it should run, will it run automatically when it boots?15:19
baizonSoP: cron -> no, anacron -> yes15:19
SoPEven when it's actually already too late for the job?15:20
SoPI'll look into anacron15:20
baizoncron will just drop the job, anacron will run it15:20
SoPI see, that's exactly what i needed, thanks!15:21

brainwashAntisober552: check the config files located /etc/modprobe.d/17:45
Antisober552Ive done that and theres a p54pci blacklisted i need to un-blacklist that17:46
brainwashcomment out the driver entry17:46
Antisober552I dont inderstand17:49
brainwash add # before that specific entry -> "#blacklist ..."17:51
brainwashthis way the entry will be skipped and the driver module won't get blacklisted17:52
Antisober552Okai thx17:53

kRushask your sysadmin20:17
Piciantisober552: is this your computer?20:17
geniiIf you're booting up into recovery and having this problem it's probably the filesystem mounted read-only.20:18

jessejazzaDoes xubuntu recognise a 3.5 ins floppy? It doesn't seem to on my machine running 12.04 LTS.20:42
jessejazzaReason being that my CD/DVD has died... so has my spare. As this is for my test machine i was thinking that i can use PLoP on the floppy to boot the USB stick. Thanks20:43
=== schizo is now known as bwall
geniijessejazza: Does: lsmod | grep floppy   ..produce a result?20:45
Noskcajjessejazza, i think it works. If you want  to install of a floppy there still is a netboot image20:46
jessejazzaI will try! I'm not too technical but have used ubuntu since 2007. What i don't follow is that gfloppy seems to have been deprecated on xubuntu anyway.20:47
jessejazzaNoskcaj: good point... thanks. although if one has two machines one might as well download a full iso. When i upgrade i like to do all backups and then do a clean install on each machine.20:53
jessejazzagenii: i get floppy    60310      0. But it doesn't seem to boot. In ubuntu 8.04 (lkast ubuntu version i used) i remember in the file manager that it always foudn the floppy drive20:58
nasirhow do i back my apps . i do not want to install them again when i format again.21:07
holsteinnasir: not really an easy way of doing that... i would just make a note of what you have, and grab the configs in /home21:08
holsteinin synaptic, you can generate a list pretty easily that can be added back to synaptic21:08
holsteini like to just have a list like a command i can paste in.... "sudo apt-get install whatever whateverelse"21:09
holsteinsince, for me, there is a lot of "kruft" that i actually dont want to install.. i like to review what i have each time, and take a fresh install as an opportunity to do better, rather than the same21:09
nasirok. my problem is internet here sucks and its expensive21:10
holsteinnasir: there are likely other ways to go that you can use21:11

holsteinsimilar suggestion at the bottom of http://askubuntu.com/questions/105857/ubuntu-11-10-not-booting-could-not-write-bytes-broken-pipes22:16
holsteinbasically, boot the recovery mode, make the filesystem useable, since it will be read-only at that point with mount -o remount,rw,errors=remount-ro /22:17
