RockLeeDoes anyone know how to make Xtreme Download Manager open videos in VLC instead of Parole?04:20
holsteinRockLee: is vlc set as default?04:21
holsteincan you just download with the download manager? and not click on files in it?04:21
RockLee@holstein yes, all my other videos open with vlc. When I choose open in XDM, they all open in Parole.04:22
holstein!info xdman04:23
ubottuPackage xdman does not exist in utopic04:23
holsteinRockLee: you can ask the creators of the project.. otherwise, it may something hard coded into it..04:23
RockLeeI had a feeling that was the case, since I didn't see any options to change it in the settings. Thanks holstein.04:24

xubuntu14wI have a basic question about installing xubuntu.13:58
knomeask away13:58
xubuntu14wHow do I get my computer to boot from the DVD that I burned?13:59
knomeif it doesn't do that automatically, try looking at the BIOS for the boot priority14:00
xubuntu14wI told it in the Setup menu to boot from the DVD, and it did not.14:00
knomehow did you burn the DVD?14:00
xubuntu14wIt booted as usual with Windows 7.14:00
xubuntu14wI just downloaded the .iso file onto the DVD, and told the computer to burn it, which it did.14:01
knomejust to make sure, does the file listing tell there are something else than just the .iso file?14:01
xubuntu14wNo, there is only the one file.14:01
knomeok, then you've burned it wrong14:01
knomeyou will need the burning application to burn the ISO file contents into the DVD14:02
cfhowlettxubuntu14w, no USB??14:03
knomexubuntu14w, here's a guide to do that https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto14:03
xubuntu14wI was literally about to post that link to you.  I did the first option that is listed under Windows 7.14:04
xubuntu14wShould I ignore that and just do the14:04
xubuntu14wInfra Recorder method?14:05
knomethat's weird, because it should work14:05
knomeif you have an extra (or -R) DVD, sure14:05
xubuntu14wI am using a DVD-R.  I could probably get my hands on another one.14:06
xubuntu14wWould burning the DVD normally make second file appear on the DVD?  Because all I had put on it was the .iso file.14:07
knomeyou can use the same DVD-R naturally14:11
knomethere should be multiple files and directories on the DVD when it's burnt correctly14:11
xubuntu14wIs there any reason I wouldn't see the files even if they were there?14:13
xubuntu14wJust to be a bit more precise, I downloaded the .iso file onto the DVD.  Then I right-clicked on the file and selected "burn to disc."  Was there anything else I was supposed to do?14:15
elfyyou shouldn't download it to the DVD - you need to burn image to disc from the file that's on the pc14:23
knomexubuntu14w, you would see the files on the DVD if they are there14:27
knomexubuntu14w, also see what elfy said14:27
xubuntu14wSo what I should have done was not drag the file onto the disk, and then tell it to burn to disc, but just tell it to burn to disc from the directory I downloaded the file to?14:29
knomexubuntu14w, tell it to burn the DVD from the contents of the ISO file, that's usually referred as "burn (disc) image"14:30
knomexubuntu14w, the ISO file is just a container for the files you need on the DVD, that's why burning the ISO file itself doesn't work14:31
xubuntu14wSorry I misspoke, I did mean "burn disc image," not "burn to disc."14:31
knomeyes14:31
knomethat's correct, with that option the burner application extracts the files from the ISO file when burning14:32
xubuntu14wI believe that's what I did...14:32
knomeif you have only the ISO file on the DVD, then you didn't, or something in the process went wrong14:32
xubuntu14wYeah, that's why I confused.  I know it didn't work, but there are almost no steps in the process.  This is supposed to be the easiest thing.14:34
xubuntu14wJust to make sure I understand your suggestion correctly, you're saying I shouldn't have downloaded the file, dragged it to the disc directory, and then right clicked and selected burn disc image,.14:35
knomexubuntu14w, that's correct14:36
xubuntu14wInstead I should have just downloaded and selected "burn disc image" without dragging it.14:36
knomexubuntu14w, correct14:36
xubuntu14wI'll do that.  If this doesn't work either, I should probably try using Infra Recorder, correct?14:37
knomemaybe14:37
knomexubuntu14w, tell us how it goes after you've done it, and good luck14:38
xubuntu14wThank you for the help.14:38
knomeyou're welcome14:39

natus_How to disable wireless connection on startup? Ihave only  ethernet connection and everytime I must disable it myself17:22
natus_I find this command line from an irc but I don't know what to think about it : dbus-send --system --type=method_call --print-reply \    --dest=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager \    org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Set string:org.freedesktop.NetworkManager \     string:WirelessEnabled variant:boolean:$bool_state17:23
holsteini would just disable my NIC in the bios, or just remove the connection that is connecting17:26
holsteinhttp://askubuntu.com/questions/154880/how-to-disable-enable-automatically-connecting-to-wifi shows the tickbox i would look for in the GUI17:27
natus_holstein: tx what is an org folder ?17:42
holsteinnatus_: in reference to what?17:42
natus_holstein: connection path17:43
holsteinnatus_: why not use the GUI, and untick "autoconnect" ?17:44
holsteinwhere are you reading "org folder" ?17:44
natus_holstein: i know that i want a script or something like that saying to my computer everytime "when you start, click on "disable wifi""17:45
natus_holstein: http://dbus.freedesktop.org/doc/dbus-send.1.html17:45
holsteinnatus_: if, what you want is, you  hit the button, and the wifi doesnt connect, just tick the box that disables auto-connection17:46
holsteinif what you want is, the wifi off all the time, disble it in the bios, or blacklist the wifi module, or, remove the hardware, and use a USB device you can remove easily17:46
natus_holstein: but if i disable wifi in bios i'll be not able to able it on ubuntu?17:47
holsteinnatus_: personally, for me, on my machines with wifi, i reboot them typically every few months, so, just diabling in the GUI makes it disabled when i wake it up17:47
natus_holstein: I live in a campus I have only ethernet connection I use wifi only when i'm outside when I boot everytime I see "wifi network connections" even if ubuntu choose ethernet connection17:48
holsteinnatus_: click on "disable" or disable the wifi in the bios, or use the function keys to turn off the wifi, or remove the wifi device from the machine, or black list the wifi module17:49
holsteinnatus_: ubuntu wont automatically join any networks.. and if you want to join one, and click untick "automatically join", it wont connect automatically17:50
natus_holstein: if i add sudo ifdown wlan0  rc.locas does it mean I must reboot to reactivate the card or I can do it in gui directly17:57
holsteinnatus_: if you untick the "autoconnect" checkbox, when you boot, the wifi will not be connected.. and it will not autojoin other networks..17:58
holsteinnatus_: you need not sudo anything, or add a script to boot the machine and have it not connect over wifi17:58
natus_holstein: It is the case holstein It doesn't connect to wifi connections because there are only ethernet avaible what i'm trying to do is disabling the wifi card no more "wifi networks" but when I want to reactivate it I can do it without rebooting18:01
holsteinnatus_: sure.. just click on whatever network you want to connect to18:05
holsteinnatus_: the device is on, you boot.. the connections you *dont* want to autoconnect to are set as such in the gui.. you are not connected or connecting to wifi.. all is as you wish18:05
holstein*then* when you want to connect, you click on the connection you want to join18:05
xubuntu57wI've got a question about connecting to wi-fi while installing xubuntu.19:24
xubuntu57wAre there some common reasons why, when I'm prompted to give the password of my wi-fi network and then I enter it and click "continue," that the installation program would say I'm not connected to the internet?19:27
ochosixubuntu57w: are you sure the password is correct? maybe different keyboard layout or something?19:29
xubuntu57wI'm very very sure.  It is even showing up correctly in the prompt.19:30
ochosinot sure what else it would be then...19:30
drcxubuntu57w: And just to be complete, you're sure it's trying to connect to the WiFi network that you are giving the correct password, not, say, your neighbors?19:32
xubuntu57wActually, I got it to work.  I looked back at the monitor, and more options popped up.  I can't explain what happened, but I guess that's moot now.19:34
xubuntu57wThanks for the help.  This is me taking the linux plunge.19:34
drcAt least it solved. And everybody starts out with less than complete knowledge...the test is to not stay at that low level :)19:35

torejlsim first time user of xubuntu. and a linux noob in general. can someone please help med install gfx driver for AMD HD 4830? :/22:25
deshipu!amd | torejls22:28
deshipuargh22:28
deshiputorejls: wait, do you need a driver for that card?22:28
torejlsyes, but i cannot google how too :/22:30
drctorejls: I think deshipu meant "why do you need a driver for that card", indicating that the open source drivers should work fine.22:32
torejlsso it should work with steam? i havent installed steam tho. im about too22:33
torejlsto*22:33
brainwashtorejls: you can only use the open source driver unless you have an old installation of xubuntu 12.04 which still supports the proprietary driver22:35
brainwashthe open source driver is installed and used by default22:36
torejlsalright. thanks :)22:37
brainwashalso, please join #ubuntu-steam if you have questions about steam22:37
torejlsjust last question. so then i understand that the open source driver that followed the installation provides 3d accelerating?23:02
brainwashtorejls: it does23:10
torejlssplendid23:11
