blakkheimgregg: mpd
david_DasEi, thanks I have been downloading that already :)
greggblakkheim: mpd?
blakkheimgregg: yes
patgdoes 64 bit need special wireless driovers?
git__hey guys, I'm writing a file versioning for Ubuntu 9.10
david_DasEi, but I think I will hinder into a dependency probs, no
greggblakkheim: music player daemon?
blakkheimgregg: yes
greggblakkheim: ok i'll check it out
DasEidavid_: I'm not too firm in this, #ubuntu+1 > yofel_
Zeedoxgregg: Quod Libet is kind of nice, too.
patgwhat is the 64 bit cahnnel
DasEidavid_: I don't think you will, but don't want to give lossy advice again
DasEipatg: here, too
Zenkeri recently wrote (with some help) my first bash script and i want to share it with the world, it changes the backgrounds for you and works with the default backgrounds folder (that way its easy to add/remove the backgrounds it selects from) i was wondering wheres the best place to ul it?
patgDasEi:  huh?
DasEiZenker: launchpad ppa
DasEipatg: 64 bit and 32 bit are supported both, here
greggthanks Zeedox
patgDasEi:  oh, I see
david_DasEi, trying that out
SamuelPetersonIs there any way to make programs that run on Mac OS X run on Ubuntu?
patgSamuelPeterson: anything in particular?
DasEi!virtualisation | SamuelPeterson:
ubottuSamuelPeterson:: There are several solutions for running other operating systems (or their programs) inside Ubuntu, while using the native CPU as much as possible: !QEmu (with !KQemu), !VirtualBox, !VMWare, as well as !WINE and !Cedega for Windows applications
Xokemorning jono
SamuelPetersonpatg: nothing particular. I was just curious if there was a WINE equivalent for Max OS X stuff.
Zenker  -here u can see what i did if ure interested
Zeedoxgregg: Np.
DasEiSamuelPeterson: vbox is what I use, though no mac
SamuelPetersonDasEi: I am not trying to run Mac OS X, just software designed for it.
patgSamuelPeterson: My first guess would be Virtualbox or VMware
DasEiSamuelPeterson: not sure, I have no mac, but without an emulator.. just ask on, don't think so
patgSamuelPeterson: I know some have gotten osx to run on windows Virtualbox. so maybe ubuntus not so far off
bullgardSynaptic: "40 packages  are held back and will not be updated. 1 new package willl be installed." Why will be 40 packages held back?
blakkheimbullgard: i already answered that didn't i
ZeedoxZenker: So it switches backgrounds every delay=15 minutes?
DasEibullgard: cause certain apps are using them, like x, can do it from init 1
SamuelPetersonDasEi, patg: my question actually spawns from the fact that I know Mac OS X is a unix like system. They use Xorg and such... so I would imagine that all that it would not be hard to add a few libraries that emulate what Mac OS X requires for most of it's software.
Zenkerzeedox yup :) r u can change it to whatever time u want,
pynchonwhats causing all the lag?
patgWireless not working ubuntu studio 64bit macbook pro 4,1. boradcom drivers installed according to hardware devices. any help?
SamuelPetersonDasEi, patg: I also don't have a copy of Mac OS X. =/
DasEiSamuelPeterson: don't think so, too many differences
gregghmmm - does EasyTag also organize music as well as edit the tags??
patgSamuelPeterson: $29 is pretty reasonable for one ;-)
vick_1188can anyone tell me, about my pidgin problem??
fumanchu182Can someone explain what font hinting is?  Also is it something that can be configured with the Appearance settings app or do I have to edit .font.conf?
ZeedoxZenker: Nice. Where would one put is so that is can run anonymously in the background?
bjwebbSamuelPeterson: actually mac os x doesn't use Xorg
bjwebbSamuelPeterson: yes, Xorg can run on mac, but most apps use something called Aqua
SamuelPetersonpatg: It is proprietary... and looks for specific hardware before it loads.
pynchonvick_1188: whats the problem?
Action: DraZoro puts the pidgin back to the cage
Xokevick_1188, you keep feeding them bread? :P
cryptkso, I am having an issue with samba/swat and ubuntu
cryptkit seems that when I log into swat to configure samba, it is not giving me all of the options
SamuelPetersonbjwebb: ah, I guess I am misinformed then.
pynchonm88: no your thinking of graphite
cryptklikely because my account does not have permissions for them... how can I correct this?
ZenkerZeedox i would suggest keeping the script file in your pictures folder so u can find it easily, then just goto system, prefs, start up applications and add it
DasEipatg: in general no studio - support here, but will fit , too, (#ubuntustudio), see:
ubottuWireless documentation, including how-to guides and troubleshooting information, can be found at
cryptkfor example, I cannot add a new share through swat when logging in with my user credentials
vick_1188pynchon: i can't connect to the gmail account, it's saying that server closed the connection
bjwebbSamuelPeterson: well, like i say, xorg will run on mac, and some apps use it and require you to install it (e.g. open office 2.0), but most things use apple's own toolkits, which is the big difficulty in hacking it to run on linux
pynchonvick_1188: did you reboot?
patgSamuelPeterson: Hackint0sh has come a long way. It runs flawlessly on lots of windows hardware- my dell mini 9 for instanmce
pynchoni always reboot when i have network troubles
Zenkerzeedox it will work wherever u save it, oh, idk if u can dl the script from there so just open gedit and copy n paste it from the bin. you may have 2 chmod +x it to make it executable
pynchoni cant figure out how to reset the netowrk connections in cmd so i just reboot
pynchonworks for me
vick_1188ppynchon: i want my google account to be active, yes i've reconnect the connection multiple time
cryptkso does nobody have any idea about my samba problem?
blakkheim!please > cryptk
ubottucryptk, please see my private message
Zenkerzeedox im thinking about expanding this project and making a gui for it, but idk, it will be a lot for me 2 learn b4 its working
bullgardDasEi: Your answer is wrong. I have closed all applications except for Synaptic. The message persists.
tmantmickster04: DasEi:  I made it back.  on the usb thumbdrive, your help much appreciated.  I was gonna go crazy!
vick_1188pynchon: i just want my google buddies active on my pidgin messanger
cryptkblakkheim, indeed I already know this, but thanks anyway...
cryptknice to see that you like to hang around just to bot spam people
DasEitmant:you got it now ?
blakkheimbullgard: i told you how to fix it, i don't know if you're going to find out why it's messed up in the first place
ZeedoxZenker: Well, expanding can be good for teaching yourself I guess, but for these kinds of things sweet and short is the way to go IMO.
vick_1188so anyone will tell me the solution please
tmantDasEi: I do :) word
bullgardblakkheim: hm
david_DasEi, new kernel did the trick thanks for everything
DasEibullgard: is not what I told you, also I like to get get corrected, but your repeating Your answer is wrong annoys me a little.
Zenkerzeedox true very true :) but if i did i would make it to where u can add/remove, change the time, and offer a way to automatically start it up if so desired
DasEitmant: spread it, have a good time
mikebeechamhi there, I have my smb shares listed twice in my 'places' section of nautilus...can anyone help me get it back to showing just one of each?
DasEidavid_: nice
bullgardDasEi: I even have given a reason. Did you read it?
bi0oshello guys
bi0osanyone can help me with this?
bi0osdmesg | grep hald
ZeedoxZenker: Would be nice.
bi0os[ 2546.960406] hald[5489]: segfault at 0 ip 080660ea sp bfdbc800 error 4 in hald[8048000+5a000]
DasEibullgard: again, there are certain, not user-invoked, that can block apt from updating, cause the stuff is in use
Zenkerzeedox the first issue i need to figure out is how to make it work w/o the pics being a root location, thats buggin the crap out of me
david_DasEi, I knew about that from debian wiki so if not that I wouldn't have been able to figure out what was wrong with wlan
tmantDasEi: peace man, I'm out
blakkheimpyqt_2010_newbie: don't do that please
blakkheimtab complete fail
bi0ospynchon: ok, I'll see
navetzhow can i reconfigure my keyboard? it is not working when in X
DasEinavetz: sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
velenojrib: i correct myself. it does work for a while..then it's like it ignores the sudoer file..and it asks me again the password
jimcooncatanyone using x2go? What do you think of it?
bi0ospynchon: it's not funny, man.
ZeedoxZenker: I've used the basename shell program a bit, maybe that could be of some use to you?
navetzDasEi: reconfigure doesn't seem to be there, is configure an option?
Zenkerzeedox what is that?
ZeedoxZenker: But wouldn't it work if you just used something like $HOME/<folder>/<folder>?
DasEinavetz: typo ?
DasEinavetz: sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
fumanchu182Can anyone verify the differences between using tasksel to install kubuntu or doing "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop"?
v3rr3zHello, I have run into an issuse of importance..
navetzDasEi: ahhh got it, thank you
Zenkerzedox no for some reason it only works if the pics are in a root location, i though about sudo gconf, but then there would be a password issue
DasEinavetz: np
ubottuIf you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its derivatives, please file a bug using the command ubuntu-bug <package> - See for other ways to report bugs - Bugs in/wishes for the IRC bots (not Ubuntu) can be filed at
v3rr3zI am currently dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu, but my windows 7 has crashed and I cant fix.. can I simply format that drive and move on or is there ubuntu info on the windows drive?
ZeedoxZenker: Strange indeed.
Zenkerzeedox yah i know, it will change the background but it only shows a solid color when it does if the pics arent in a /root
C-S-B-N900v3rr3z: you should be safe just formatting the partition.
blistov!bug 550409
v3rr3zAlright.. thanks
blistovHow do I convince ubottu to link?
blistovbug 550409
C-S-B-N900while you are there,why no blitz windows and use the space for ubuntu
Zenkerzeedox however i havent tried letting it start up automatically w/o them being there
jpdsblistov: You can't in this channel.
psmasterhey everyone. I was just wondering if anyone knew where I can download the game Warmonger for linux since the website is down
blistovHrm... anyone seen problems with extremely slow disk throughput on kvm/qemu guests using libvirt?
Zenkermaybe i should try asking in a scripting channel maybe someone already knows why
ZeedoxZenker: Could it be related to the way gconftool-2 works?
ZeedoxZenker: probably
Zenkervery probable

v3rr3zJust wondering but can you install ubuntu using a Flash Drive
blistovAnyone know of a good desktop gui system monitor that isn't retarded? IE: I really liked gkrellm, but it was outdated in the late 80's.
blistovI need to be able to see things like disk/net io on the fly.
blistovand it needs to be modular like gkrellm.
ZykoticK9blistov, conky is sorta an updated gkrellm
Trinidaddoes anyone know how to install a modem in ubuntu.  i can get it to work in windows but not ubuntu
DasEi!usb | v3rr3z
ubottuv3rr3z: For information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see - For a persistent live USB install, see:
DasEiTrinidad: sure.. open trml ...
blistovZykoticK9, I dig Conky except that you have to be a programmer to use it :p  Fine for me (though I'm no programmer), but I can't recommend it to anyone.
blistovZykoticK9, I found gkrellm more useful, and easier to setup.
ZykoticK9blistov, i hear that!  I still use gkrellm actually.
nate38654any one know wheere i can find resources on setting up soft ap for alfa 1 watt, google hasn't helped much
DasEiTrinidad: done, modem connceted ?
blistovZykoticK9, Me too, though its getting a bit old, and no one will ever write a new interface for it.
fcni need a little online place to test my designs using browsershots. does anybody know a good free place like that?
guntbert!ot | fcn
ubottufcn: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!
ZykoticK9blistov, i use a transparent theme for gkrellm and increase the text size - looks "ok", but certainly not modern
DasEifcn: ask there
DasEi!pm | Trinidad
ubottuTrinidad: Please ask your questions in the channel so that other people can help you, benefit from your questions and answers, and ensure that you're not getting bad advice. Please note that some people find it rude to be sent a PM without being asked for permission to do so first.
blistovZykoticK9, I assume you're referring to "invisible" ?
ThinkClearHey guys, I have a problem, more specific a wireless problem. I have an MSI Cr700 wich has a built in WLAN card, can I somehow make it work in Ubuntu?
ZykoticK9blistov, yup

freedarVLC (latest version) stops automatically when the video is broken (damaged), because of that i have to click always to resume button. But other media players can resume the video (even it is broken-even the screen going to black) until finish the problem. i know that VLC is the best player for broken files. But i don't know how to edit from settings to "do not stop (or resume) even the file is broken" ? Can someone helps me? Thanks!
