Guido1Hello, I have some trouble with syncronising my ipod nano 5G with rhythembox. If I add music to my ipod mini, everything works. If I do the same with the nano the music is copied, but the ipod doesn't see the music (using xubuntu 14.04). Can someone help me?00:02
brainwashGuido1: that's a general ubuntu question. did you already ask in #ubuntu ?00:05
knomeor if rhythmbox has a support channel, there00:05
Guido1brainwash: yes, no answer and by rhythembox there is also no one who can help - seams that only one person is online00:06

ubottuPlymouth is an application that runs very early in the boot process (even before the root filesystem is mounted!) that provides a graphical boot animation while the boot process happens in the background.

knomethere is no gui to configure plymouth.00:26
rosaecaeruleaeis any of you in the mood to list the commands I have to type to solve the issue?00:27
knomerosaecaeruleae, i don't even know what your problem is. first your wallpaper is black, then you want a "screensaver" before the login screen.00:28
=== therealnanotube is now known as nanotube
knomebesides, fixing issues isn't just listing commands. unless you know what you are doing, you could put your system in a worse state.00:29

rosaecaeruleaewait, i have also the main package00:33
rosaecaeruleaeknome, yes00:34
brainwashrosaecaeruleae: the missing boot logo/animation is a common issue. sometimes it can be fixed (-> google), but in some cases it's not possible to due to the graphics driver00:38
rosaecaeruleaebrainwash, i see a boot image when logging out00:39
brainwashyou mean powering off the system, or?00:40

rosaecaeruleaebrainwash, i dont see nothing during boot-turning on the computer. I see the blueish xubuntu splash screen when booting off-turning off the computer00:50
pixelkatheck yeah it is00:50
pixelkatrosae: download dban, make a bootable disk, erase HD and install xubuntu 15.04 :D00:51
brainwashrosaecaeruleae: the graphics card + driver are loaded during the boot process, so there might be a timing issue with plymouth -> no or late boot screen00:51
brainwashrosaecaeruleae: this is not the case while you shut down the system00:52

maddawg_Hey guys, I would like to know how to permanently enable root access on linux OS'20:01
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo20:01
holsteinmaddawg_: you have it20:01
ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo20:01
maddawg_I know it's not recommended but I want it.20:01
holsteinmaddawg_: sudo grants what you wish.. use that20:01
holsteinhttp://askubuntu.com/questions/44418/how-to-enable-root-login outlines alternatives and risks, and how to do what i suggest you dont do, and dont need to do..20:03
maddawg_What exactly do I have to type into Terminal?20:03
holsteinmaddawg_: sudo -i20:03
holsteinmaddawg_: ^ that *exactly* gets you a root shell.. above, in the link i shared, you will see *exactly* what to copy paste into a terminal that i suggest you dont, and dont need to20:03
maddawg_Okay thanks. Now does this root access remain even throughout reboots?20:04
holsteinmaddawg_: sudo is *always* there..20:04
maddawg_Lol smart alec20:04
holsteinmaddawg_: i dont enable a root account, but, if you choose to, that would be persistent.. as the link i shared states20:04
knomemaddawg_, if you enable the root account, your system will be unsupported20:05
knomemaddawg_, so please don't.20:05
holsteinyup ^ and you really dont need to20:05
maddawg_Ok so heres the deal. Im trying to install a gnome theme that i downloaded from deviantart and the install guide tells me to drop the theme into a specified folder20:06
holsteinmaddawg_: again, you *dont* need a root account enable for that20:06
maddawg_i cant do that without root access apparently20:07
holsteinmaddawg_: if you have *no* idea how to move files with access like that, you can always use a live iso via USB20:07
maddawg_well im not skilled with linux like you guys are.20:07
holsteinmaddawg_: you can use sudo in the terminal, as i suggested before.. sudo mv /path/to/file /path/to/where/to/move20:07
holsteinmaddawg_: if you are not very skilled, i suggest just using the themes in the default repos til you become more comfortable20:08
maddawg_that seems a bit much but thanks for that bit of info20:08
knomemaddawg_, you can copy new themes to ~/.themes as well20:08
knomemaddawg_, ~ being your user directory20:08
drcmaddawg_: Can you use ~/.theme ?20:08
knomemaddawg_, then they are available for your user account without need to use sudo (or root to that matter)20:09
