blakkheim
gregg: yes
patg

git__

david_
DasEi, but I think I will hinder into a dependency probs, no

gregg
blakkheim: music player daemon?
blakkheim
gregg: yes
gregg
blakkheim: ok i'll check it out

DasEi
david_: I'm not too firm in this, #ubuntu+1 > yofel_
Zeedox
gregg: Quod Libet is kind of nice, too.ä
patg
what is the 64 bit cahnnel
DasEi
david_: I don't think you will, but don't want to give lossy advice again
patg: here, too
Zenker
i 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?
patg
DasEi: huh?
DasEi
Zenker: launchpad ppa
patg: 64 bit and 32 bit are supported both, here
gregg
thanks Zeedox
patg
DasEi: oh, I see
david_
DasEi, trying that out
SamuelPeterson
Is there any way to make programs that run on Mac OS X run on Ubuntu?
patg
SamuelPeterson: anything in particular?
DasEi
!virtualisation | SamuelPeterson:
ubottu
SamuelPeterson:: 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
Xoke
morning jono
SamuelPeterson
patg: nothing particular. I was just curious if there was a WINE equivalent for Max OS X stuff.
Zenker
http://www.pasteall.org/11996/bash -here u can see what i did if ure interested
Zeedox
gregg: Np.
DasEi
SamuelPeterson: vbox is what I use, though no mac
SamuelPeterson
DasEi: I am not trying to run Mac OS X, just software designed for it.
patg
SamuelPeterson: My first guess would be Virtualbox or VMware
DasEi
SamuelPeterson: not sure, I have no mac, but without an emulator.. just ask on, don't think so
patg
SamuelPeterson: I know some have gotten osx to run on windows Virtualbox. so maybe ubuntus not so far off
bullgard
Synaptic: "40 packages are held back and will not be updated. 1 new package willl be installed." Why will be 40 packages held back?
pynchon
llllllllaaaaaaaaaagggggggggggg
blakkheim
bullgard: i already answered that didn't i
Zeedox
Zenker: So it switches backgrounds every delay=15 minutes?
DasEi
bullgard: cause certain apps are using them, like x, can do it from init 1
SamuelPeterson
DasEi, 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.
Zenker
zeedox yup :) r u can change it to whatever time u want,
pynchon
whats causing all the lag?
patg
Wireless not working ubuntu studio 64bit macbook pro 4,1. boradcom drivers installed according to hardware devices. any help?
SamuelPeterson
DasEi, patg: I also don't have a copy of Mac OS X. =/
DasEi
SamuelPeterson: don't think so, too many differences
gregg
hmmm - does EasyTag also organize music as well as edit the tags??
patg
SamuelPeterson: $29 is pretty reasonable for one ;-)
vick_1188
can anyone tell me, about my pidgin problem??
fumanchu182
Can 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?
vick_1188
hello
Zeedox
Zenker: Nice. Where would one put is so that is can run anonymously in the background?
bjwebb
SamuelPeterson: actually mac os x doesn't use Xorg
SamuelPeterson: yes, Xorg can run on mac, but most apps use something called Aqua
SamuelPeterson
patg: It is proprietary... and looks for specific hardware before it loads.
pynchon
vick_1188: whats the problem?
DraZoro
(Action) puts the pidgin back to the cage
Xoke
vick_1188, you keep feeding them bread? :P
cryptk
so, I am having an issue with samba/swat and ubuntu
m88
AquaX?
cryptk
it seems that when I log into swat to configure samba, it is not giving me all of the options
SamuelPeterson
bjwebb: ah, I guess I am misinformed then.
pynchon
m88: no your thinking of graphite
m88
hehe
cryptk
likely because my account does not have permissions for them... how can I correct this?
Zenker
Zeedox 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
DasEi
patg: in general no studio - support here, but will fit , too, (#ubuntustudio), see:
!wireless
ubottu
Wireless documentation, including how-to guides and troubleshooting information, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs
cryptk
for example, I cannot add a new share through swat when logging in with my user credentials
Zeedox
Righty
vick_1188
pynchon: i can't connect to the gmail account, it's saying that server closed the connection
bjwebb
SamuelPeterson: 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
pynchon
vick_1188: did you reboot?
patg
SamuelPeterson: Hackint0sh has come a long way. It runs flawlessly on lots of windows hardware- my dell mini 9 for instanmce
pynchon
i always reboot when i have network troubles
Zenker
zeedox 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
pynchon
i cant figure out how to reset the netowrk connections in cmd so i just reboot
works for me
vick_1188
ppynchon: i want my google account to be active, yes i've reconnect the connection multiple time
cryptk
so does nobody have any idea about my samba problem?
blakkheim
!please > cryptk
ubottu
cryptk, please see my private message
Zenker
zeedox 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
bullgard
DasEi: Your answer is wrong. I have closed all applications except for Synaptic. The message persists.
tmant
mickster04: DasEi: I made it back. on the usb thumbdrive, your help much appreciated. I was gonna go crazy!
vick_1188
pynchon: i just want my google buddies active on my pidgin messanger
cryptk
blakkheim, indeed I already know this, but thanks anyway...
nice to see that you like to hang around just to bot spam people
DasEi
tmant:you got it now ?
blakkheim
bullgard: 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
Zeedox
Zenker: 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_1188
so anyone will tell me the solution please
tmant
DasEi: I do :) word
bullgard
blakkheim: hm
david_
DasEi, new kernel did the trick thanks for everything
DasEi
bullgard: is not what I told you, also I like to get get corrected, but your repeating Your answer is wrong annoys me a little.
Zenker
zeedox 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
zwwlucky

DasEi
tmant: spread it, have a good time
mikebeecham
hi 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?
DasEi
david_: nice
bullgard
DasEi: I even have given a reason. Did you read it?
bi0os
hello guys
anyone can help me with this?
dmesg | grep hald
Zeedox
Zenker: Would be nice.
bi0os
[ 2546.960406] hald[5489]: segfault at 0 ip 080660ea sp bfdbc800 error 4 in hald[8048000+5a000]
DasEi
bullgard: again, there are certain, not user-invoked, that can block apt from updating, cause the stuff is in use
Zenker
zeedox 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
tmant
DasEi: peace man, I'm out
blakkheim
pyqt_2010_newbie: don't do that please
tab complete fail
bi0os
pynchon: ok, I'll see
navetz
how can i reconfigure my keyboard? it is not working when in X
DasEi
navetz: sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
veleno
jrib: 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
jimcooncat
anyone using x2go? What do you think of it?
bi0os
pynchon: it's not funny, man.
Zeedox
Zenker: I've used the basename shell program a bit, maybe that could be of some use to you?
navetz
DasEi: reconfigure doesn't seem to be there, is configure an option?
Zenker
zeedox what is that?
Zeedox
Zenker: But wouldn't it work if you just used something like $HOME/<folder>/<folder>?
DasEi
navetz: typo ?
navetz: sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
fumanchu182
Can anyone verify the differences between using tasksel to install kubuntu or doing "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop"?
v3rr3z
Hello, I have run into an issuse of importance..
navetz
DasEi: ahhh got it, thank you
Zenker
zedox 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
DasEi
navetz: np

I 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?
blistov
damn!
Zeedox
Zenker: Strange indeed.
Zenker
zeedox 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-N900
v3rr3z: you should be safe just formatting the partition.

psmaster
hey everyone. I was just wondering if anyone knew where I can download the game Warmonger for linux since the website is down
blistov
Hrm... anyone seen problems with extremely slow disk throughput on kvm/qemu guests using libvirt?
Zenker
maybe i should try asking in a scripting channel maybe someone already knows why
Zeedox
Zenker: Could it be related to the way gconftool-2 works?
Zenker: probably
Zenker
very probable

Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala), DWA-140 USB adapter (rt2870sta-driver). Connects at 54 Mbps, but I want it to run at 300 Mbps (802.11n, not 802.11g). How do I do it ?
My router is 802.11n-aware (D-Link DIR-655).

Just wondering but can you install ubuntu using a Flash Drive
blistov
Anyone 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.
I need to be able to see things like disk/net io on the fly.
and it needs to be modular like gkrellm.
ZykoticK9
blistov, conky is sorta an updated gkrellm
Trinidad
does anyone know how to install a modem in ubuntu. i can get it to work in windows but not ubuntu
DasEi
!usb | v3rr3z
ubottu
v3rr3z: For information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent
DasEi
Trinidad: sure.. open trml ...
blistov
ZykoticK9, 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.
ZykoticK9, I found gkrellm more useful, and easier to setup.
ZykoticK9
blistov, i hear that! I still use gkrellm actually.
nate38654
any one know wheere i can find resources on setting up soft ap for alfa 1 watt, google hasn't helped much
DasEi
Trinidad: done, modem connceted ?
blistov
ZykoticK9, Me too, though its getting a bit old, and no one will ever write a new interface for it.

DasEi

VLC (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!
pepee
ok. I get this when I try to run this app: ** (gupnp-universal-cp:19273): WARNING **: Failed to load icon (null): Icon 'audio-x-generic' not present in theme

Does anyone know where I can change LC_COLLATE?
Google wont tell me.

Zeedox, set LC_COLLATE="something"
