marxjohnsonAny Lovefilm/Amazon Prime subscribers had any luck getting Amazon Instant Video working with Silverlight?11:20
marxjohnsonI just get "Service Error (1002)" when I try to load a video11:20
popeymarxjohnson: i had it working once, then it broke, i fettled with various things like the user agent string and couldn' make it work again (this was netflix, but similar)12:26
marxjohnsonpopey: Hmm. I've had Lovefilm Instant working fine up to now with Pipelight and a Windows user agent (occasionally had to reinstall pipelight when they updated something), but no joy at all with Amazon yet12:27

marxjohnsonIt doesn't block me entirely, so it accepts the user agent, just fails at actually loading a video12:34

nigelbHello popey15:16
daftykinshow goes it?18:08
DJonesNot bad, just back from a christening18:08
DJonesNow to get on with something useful and try to work out how to add nvidia on this laptop18:08
daftykinsoptimus tech is it?18:09
DJonesI assume so, not described as optimus, but it has both builtin intel and an nvidia 75018:10
DJones00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)18:11
DJones01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107M [GeForce GT 750M] (rev a1)18:12
daftykinsyeah that'll be it18:12
daftykinsnvidia prime for you then i guess :)18:12
DJonesThats what I thought18:13
DJonesI found a webpage with instructions last night, just trying to find it again18:14
DJoneshttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/HybridGraphics Seems right18:15
DJonesbigcalm: How did you get on with installing nvidia on your new laptop? Is that optimus or just straight nvidia18:16
daftykinsyou put 14.04 on, yeah?18:16
daftykinsi think it's meant to be a lot easier to get prime going on that18:16
DJonesNumber 4 on here seems hopefull http://www.webupd8.org/2013/10/8-things-to-do-after-installing-ubuntu.html18:17
daftykinslooking good :>18:19
daftykinsthere may be newer than the 319 driver by now 0o not sure if it's supported with prime though18:19
DJones60FPS with the intel driver runnning in glxgears18:20
daftykinssounds vsync capped 0o18:21
DJonesAh well, built and installed18:25
DJonesTime to reboot18:25
DJonesSee you on the other side (hopefully)18:25
DJonesAh well, rebooted ok18:28
DJonesWTH..... 18038 FPS with nvidia18:29
bigcalmDJones: things have settled down. Have been playing Portal 2 with the intel drivers without problem :)18:29
DJonesRight, nvidia seems to have installed without any issues at all18:30
DJonesJust going to try minecraft18:30
bigcalmDJones: be careful with putting the laptop into sleep while running from the nvidia drivers18:30
DJonesMight even consider installing steam now18:30
bigcalmYou might want to look at using profiles in x-settings18:30
bigcalmDJones: run intel for every day use and then switch to nvidia when you want to do something graphics intensive18:31
DJonesHow do you switch between intel & nvidia18:31
bigcalmVia profiles in x-settings18:32
DJonesminecraft is really smooth18:32
bigcalmI have to go for tea now. davmor2 will be able to help more :D18:32
DJonesGreat thanks, missed that just having a quick glance18:32

DJonesow do I stop alt-t when running irssi through ssh from terminal grabbing catching the Terminal menu, rather than changing irssi channel18:58
daftykinshrmm i only use alt+n19:01
popeyDJones: i had that recently19:01
popeyDJones: there'a a menu option in the terminal to turn off menus19:02
DJonesI changed it on my last laptop, just can't remember how to change it now19:02
popeyright click properties?19:03
popeyI use terminator these days now focus follows mouse works nicely with locally integrated menus19:03
DJonesCan't seem to find anything to set it, I thought it was in keyboard shortcuts, bu even with menu access keys disabled it makes no difference, that could be a bug though19:04
DJonesI think thats what I changed last time19:06
