xubuntu176When does Xubuntu 13.04 become an LTS release?  I know it is supported untl January of 2014.03:11
cfhowlettxubuntu176, never.03:11
cfhowlettxubuntu176, LTS releases come out every 2 years.  current lts is 12.04.  next lts will be 14.0403:12
xubuntu176It seems pointless to me to install 13.04 (mostly new features) when its predecessor has support until April 2015.03:14
xubuntu176An update will give me new features found in 13.04?03:14
cfhowlettxubuntu176, for long term support, install 12.04.  Personally, I only install LTS releases.03:15
xubuntu176Okay.  I will definitely install 12.04.  Also, how good is WINE?  I understand that there is a new version that has approximately 10K new updates.03:17
xubuntu176Does the 10K new updates mean that it supports more Windows software?03:18
ubottuxubuntu176,: WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu03:18
Unit193Still check the appdb.03:18
cfhowlettxubuntu176, wine aint' windows.  period point blank.  some things work kinda, some things work better .03:19
xubuntu176I understand what WINE is.  I was just wondering if the newer version supported current and future software.03:20
xubuntu176What is appdb?03:20
cfhowlettxubuntu176, the wine database.  details and specifications.03:21
cfhowlett"future" software?  ummm, NO.03:21
cfhowlettall wine hacks are backhacks.  so AFTER the software is releases and IF someone wants to hack it for wine ... maybe.03:22
xubuntu176I am currently running Win Vista x64 and plan on installing Xubuntu 12.04 in an internal 1TB hard drive.03:22
ubottuThe Wine Application DB is a database of applications and help for !Windows programs that run under !WINE: http://appdb.winehq.org - Join #winehq for application help03:23
xubuntu176I HATE WIN VISTA.03:23
xubuntu176[ubottu] Thanks.03:23
ubottuThe Wine Application DB is a database of applications and help for !Windows programs that run under !WINE: http://appdb.winehq.org - Join #winehq for application help03:23
xubuntu176Do I type !appdb in the shell?03:24
xubuntu176I am sorry folks.  I am a Linux n00b.03:25
cfhowlettxubuntu176, no worries.03:26
cfhowlettcurious: what do you need wine for?03:26
xubuntu176I have done considerable research into some of the advancements in Linux concerning reliability, stability, security, ease of use, freedom to use the OS as I see fit, etc.03:27
xubuntu176I just believe that Linux in my opinion is litterally 3 years ahead of Windows in what is available and what can be accomplished.03:29
xubuntu176I cannot wait to begin using Xubuntu 12.04 (and future LTS releases) and leave Windows in the PAST.03:30
xubuntu176I am currently brainstorming:  is it possible in Xubuntu 12.04 to easily switch in and out of different user interfaces (xfce, lxde, KDE, GNOME, etc)?)03:32
cfhowlettxubuntu176, quite easy.  logout.  choose a de.  login03:33
xubuntu176I think it would be cool to have four window panels which allow easy access to four different user interfaces.03:34
xubuntu176Is that possible?03:34
xubuntu176Each window panel is a different user interface.03:35
cfhowlettxubuntu176, pretty sure you can only run one DE at a time03:35
cfhowlettdesktop environment ; xfce4, lxde etc.03:38
xubuntu176Oh!  Duh!03:38
xubuntu176I'm running a 64bit laptop.  Should I choose the 64bit iteration of Xubuntu 12.04 of the 32bit?03:38
xubuntu176My laptop is about 4 years old.  I was wondering if it would be better (stability-wise) if I chose the 32-bit or just go with 64 bit?03:40
cfhowlettxubuntu176, my 2009 dell loves 64 bit ubuntustudio ...03:40
xubuntu176What is possible in ubuntustudio?03:41
xubuntu176cfhowlett, I am so glad you referred me to ubuntu studio because that is EXACTLY the kind of system I want to run!  Is Ubuntu Studio compatible with the current software center?03:45
cfhowlettxubuntu176, is built on xubuntu so ... YES!03:46
cfhowlettprepare to spend hours and hours playing all the cool toys ...03:48
Unit193UbuntuStudio, Xubuntu, and Ubuntu all use the same repos, just different configuration and default DE (except, Xubuntu and US both use Xfce, and somewhat of the same config too. :P )03:49
xubuntu176Does Ubuntu Studio offer software to record incoming sound (Youtube music), edit the ID3 tags in recorded audio files such as MP3s and MP4s?03:50
cfhowlettxubuntu176, all ubuntus can do that.  you need to add the restricted-extras to get the codecs03:51
cfhowlettor you add plugins to firefox to capture sound from YT.  Editing id3 tags apps are in the software center03:52
xubuntu176What Firefox plugins allow sound capture?03:53
Unit193I know VLC can edit them, even if it's a media player.  DownloadHelper can download YouTube videos (extension for FF.)03:53
cfhowlettxubuntu176, go to firefox plugins and search03:54
xubuntu176I have VLC in Windows.  LOVE IT!03:54
xubuntu176I did an easy Google search for the sound capture for Firefox.  ASESOME!03:56
xubuntu176I am so excited about intalling Xubuntu 12.04 or Ubuntu Studio 12.04!  Heck, I may just do a dual boot of both!  Leave Win Vista on my old hard drive!03:57
cfhowlettI'm dual booting win7 and US.  word of advice: stick with LTS releases.  fewer headaches.03:58
cfhowlettwait, xubuntu AND ubuntustudio?  why?03:59
cfhowlettxubuntu + US packages = Ubuntustudio03:59
nonubyso no xubuntu-next channel,  is anyone running the daily builds of 13.10, what kernel version is used?05:54

carreraGreetings!  :)21:04
* genii hands carrera an Xubuntu mug and points them at the coffeepot21:06
carreraThanks genii!  :)21:11
carreragenii, actually drinking a nice cup of the Kicking Horse, Kick Ass dark brewed for 7 mins in a French press right now21:12
carreraI'm looking for a tool and format to store music from my CDs21:15
carreraso far I came up with ALAC and AAC for smaller size21:15
maitakea very, very large drive and .FLAC :D21:16
SysiALAC is lossless so it doesn't really save space21:16
SysiI'm not sure how open AAC is, but on linux OGG is better and mp3 is the most universally supported21:17
maitakeogg is nice too21:18
carrerathanks for all the input guys21:18
carreraHaving Lossless in the name, obviously means Apple Lossless is a Lossless codec, unlike a lossy codec (such as mp3) where audio quality is lost forever in the name of smaller files, lossless stores the original CD track without loss, like zip for audio. Apple Lossless can compress CD quality audio file to roughly half its original size.21:19
Sysiall my music is mp3 because it just works everywhere (unless you're RMS and won't use the codec) and you can't really hear the difference between lossless and best quality compressed21:19
Unit193flac is nice becaues it's lossless, but compressed.21:19
Sysirichard stallman21:19
Sysiflac is more widely used than alac, but both usually work21:20
carreraI love this channel21:20

carrerabasically, my music is only for me21:24
carreraand I mostly listen t music on my laptop, up to 95% of the time21:25
carreraso far, I think FLAC is what people like most21:26
carrerashould I use ffmpeg or is there a better tool?21:49
holsteincarrera: people use what format works for them..21:53
holsteinogg is open.. flac/wan is lossless.. mp3 is usually what *everything* can play (appliances)..21:53
carrerathanks holstein21:53
carrerahow about AAC?21:53
holsteinthere is a gui tool21:53
holstein!info soundconverter21:54

holsteincarrera: aac comes up less often21:54
carreraand, it seems like, ALAC even less so21:54
carreraALAC is lossless and they say it compresses down to half the original size21:55
holsteindepends on what the goal is.. playability vs size vs original sourse.. vs maybe 'open-ness'21:55
carreraI definitely wanna keep the original quality cause I'm an audiophile21:57
holsteincarrera: literally no one will stop you21:57
howefieldcarrera: are the source files on cd ?21:57

howefieldin that case, I'd suggest abcde21:58
holsteincarrera: store whatever data you want where you like21:58
carrera95% of the time I listen to music on my laptop and the other 5% on my Galaxy S3 Android phone21:59
carreraholstein, no one will stop me from what?22:00
carreraholstein, do u mean even mp3 is let's me keep original sound quality?22:01
holsteincarrera: no one will stop you from maintaining the original resoluntion22:01
holsteincarrera: mp3 is mp3.. with the smaller size for a hit in quality that most animals cant hear (within reason)22:02
carreraso I should youse FLAC and not ALAC to keep the original resolution22:06
holsteincarrera: there is not "should", friend.. there are your needs, and you meet them22:07
carreraand then convert to m4a or mp3 for other devices22:07
holsteincarrera: what do i do? if i have a CD, i keep it at 16/44.1 .wavs.. assuming i want to keep the original "quality"22:07
carreraholstein, thanks  :)22:07
