is this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx/Feisty_No-Fluff outdated with ubuntu 9.10 or should i go through it if my wifi isnt working?
ShazbotMcNasty
rdvonz, you need the video driver
speiros
Is there a document on Ubuntu, and where to begin as for learning the whole program?
rdvonz
ShazbotMcNasty: Uh, no I don't.
ShazbotMcNasty
speiros, what?
speiros, you want to learn the command line?
knoppies
speiros, that is not the way you do it. But you can have a look at the wiki.
speiros
Yes, basically. I love Ubuntu.
Okay. Thanks.
Dolp
How do i clear my flash cookies?
speiros
Where is the wiki on it?
almoxarife
Zenker: I am not sure what you mean, the first option usually takes you to ubuntu, the second is for diags and the rest depend on what else is on your machine, I assume that is what you are seeing
ShazbotMcNasty
speiros, if you want to learn the command line, i suggest running INX: http://inx.maincontent.net/
speiros
<ShazbotMcNasty>Thanks.
knoppies
speiros, welcome aboard. I have a Desktop wallpaper with a few commands on it. I can look for a command line tutorial. thats probably your best bet.

ruch, You could conisder try using an alternative player, I remember having issues with it, I got rid of my third party player and used a propriety one, seemed to do the trick. But that was ages ago.

FreezingSystem
It did it 3 tmes. then not for a week. 3 times today. == I dont Undertand OOB. It does not freeze right away. It does not freeze during youtube though I think that might be involved. JonStewart froze it. Chatroulette acts like there is amissing plugin. igoogle does not function right even though I do have Javascript (checked it with some website)
Zenker
sgashepp are u using compiz if so try disabling it
FreezingSystem
Problem: freezes. I just did the grub memtest for 8 minutes and all is fine. Isnt there some logfile I should pastebin to help you help me? (SETUP: AMD-2600+,1.2Gram,Ub9.10 squinty operator, lol) --------
knoppies
FreezingSystem, you should pastebin that.
sgashepp
I dont' know how do i check? this is just a fresh install
ruch
knoppies: gnash doesn't work... it says: An error occured " on youtube videos
FreezingSystem
look I've been in this channel asking this 4 times over the last 3 hours
knoppies
FreezingSystem, it sounds to me like your WM manager (or desktop, whichever crashes first) is crashing.
ruch, thats the player I had issues with. I open up FF and my PC would grind to a halt. 100% CPU usage while idling.
ruch
very bad
rdvonz
I need some GOD DAMN HELP WITH MY GOD DAMN DISPLAY RESOLUTION.
FreezingSystem

I want to clear all my cookies, ever, my flash cookies, all of them
ShazbotMcNasty
Dolp, yes
it's really simple
in firefox
go to TOOLS
Dolp
didn't work
it failed
epic fail
knoppies
FreezingSystem, Other than backing up your data and doing a fresh install, Im not sure how else to fix it. Ive had that problem. I used to use AWN, if I minimized one thing, and un-minimized another before compiz had finished minimizing the first, then it used to freeze. Other than that Im not sure.
Dolp
ledgendary fail.
FloodBot4
Dolp: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.
ShazbotMcNasty
seriously
Dolp
ye, seriously
ruch
tank you
knoppies
FreezingSystem, you using compiz and/or AWN?
FreezingSystem
knoppies, the first time I came in here it had happened 3x. and the resolution was that someone looked at the logfile and told me I should take the CD out (that was just sitting there doing nothing). so I did and a week went by. -- Then it rebooted itself. After froze 3x. So I came here. -- I appreciate all help.
knoppies, I do not know what compiz or AWN are.
knoppies
FreezingSystem, Im happy to help. Im no guru though.
rabbit1
having problem in stalling 9.10 on AMD
FreezingSystem
Hey, even I can answer _some_ wuestions.
knoppies
FreezingSystem, AWN stands for Avant Window Navigator (or something similar) its a Dock that looks a little like the macOS dock.
FreezingSystem, compiz is a package that does all the fancy animations on your windows, its a windows manager.
Dolp
I want to completely clear my account here, http://web.xat.com/chat_groups.html it says it is only clearable by destroying my flash cookies, how do i destroy all my cookies ever?
geoffmcc
hey has anyone noticed with ubuntu server (for sure on 64bit version cause it just happened) if you sudo su right after login it does not ask for password sometimes
sgashepp
Zenker, this is just the effects option under 'appearence', is that compiz?
enderx86
how can i get a list of packages from apt-get?
knoppies
Dolp, reformat.
ruch
if anyone knows a solution for my SLOW Flash Player, please help me
Zenker
sgashepp no compiz is not installed you would of had 2 install it, so thats a no, so idk how 2 fix your issue, try asking again
knoppies
sgashepp, yes, I think. but you can get an advanced options for compiz by installing a package
frxstrem

MuZI

ruch
if anyone knows a solution for my SLOW Flash Player, please help me
Zenker
gnomefreak oh thats right its ccsm thats not installed by default X)
Dolp
knoppies, how do i remove flash cookies then?
geoffmcc
it doesnt happen all time but def sometimes and i think maybe its a bug. the user i log into has priv to do it but im not sure if it would let a non priv to do it
sgashepp
Zenker, I see. I think it is working fine though, I was thinking it has something to do with video drivers.
gnomefreak
Zenker: correct simple-ccsm is not installed by default
knoppies
Dolp, idk. I would assume they are kept where your browser cookies are kept.
Zenker
sgashepp doubtfully, you would probably have more issues then a slow display but idk
gnomefreak
sgashepp: use jocky-gtk to install thema nd it will enable compiz for you. install in other ways it may not
AbortD
anyone have troubles with alltray where the icon doesnt have a clear background and its white

ShazbotMcNasty

AbortD

sgashepp
gnomefreak, the effects are working though, atleast trying to, they are just very slow. would installing that fix?
knoppies
AbortD, I kinda stopped using alltray because it took too much effort.
gnomefreak
sgashepp: no
rabbit1
people, help me in installing 9.10 on AMD 64 athlon x2 with nvidia chipset

AbortD
i just want my thunderbird to stay open knoppies and it wont where the envelope programs are
ZykoticK9
rabbit1, System / Admin / Hardware Drivers - enable the nvidia driver
gnomefreak
rabbit1: install as normal than use system>admin.>hardware drivers to install nvidia drivers
knoppies
AbortD, Im not sure what you mean by where the envelope programs are. But I normally leave thunderbird on its own virtual desktop.
AbortD, you probably referring to the notification tray.
AbortD
ys
yes
FreezingSystem
knoppies, no and no. Ubuntu wouldnt let me try any window animations. (I use, terminal, bhrome, firefox, xchat. occasionally I try exiga. gedit oftn. once in a blue moon gimp. I play musica with m
Dolp
ShazbotMcNasty, nothing

AbortD
i have it in the tray gnomefreak
JJ_
enth maira
rabbit1
gnomefreak: i have the CD, but i my screen does nothing other than displaying color strips and flickering
knoppies
FreezingSystem, Im not sure how to fix it then. Im not even sure whats causing it. I would suggest (after getting some sleep) that you backup your data and try a reformat. If that doesnt help then idk how to help. I cant think of what might be causing it. Especially if you dont have compiz effects running.
rabbit1
ZykoticK9: i have the CD, but i my screen does nothing other than displaying color strips and flickering
gnomefreak
AbortD: ok i thought you meant indicator-*
sgashepp
ZykoticK9 nope.
AbortD
i wish i could keep it open with alltray without a white background to the icon gnomefreak
FreezingSystem
Thanks knoppies I'll have to get another hard drive first. sigh.
ZykoticK9
rabbit1, when you are booting the LiveCD you are getting the strips/flickering? Do you know what card it is?
gnomefreak
rabbit1: either you dont have enough ram or cpu or the installer is broken try re burning it using lowest speed possibile or you may want to install using the alternative installer
FreezingSystem
night all
gnomefreak
AbortD: oh alltray thats different
knoppies
tripelb, you could try borrow a friend's external. But yea. Im not sure whats causing it. Sleep well
AbortD
yeah i have it in the indicator thing but it wont stay open in it
rabbit1
gnomefreak: i don think its problem of files, coz, even when i tried with well working ubuntu studio CD, the screen effect was same,
AbortD
even if i could hide it from the bottom bar it would work how i want
rabbit1
gnomefreak: i got 2 GB DDR2 RAM
AbortD
then i could get my emails with it open
rabbit1
ZykoticK9: nvidia card? u mean ? how shall i find that?
