Anybody know what wicd-client is using to display widgets?
[QUOTE=nos217;35006417]Anybody know what wicd-client is using to display widgets?[/QUOTE] What do you mean by widgets?
[QUOTE=nos217;35006417]Anybody know what wicd-client is using to display widgets?[/QUOTE] wicd doesn't display widgets? Huh?
I'm having trouble with getting a network manager to work on openbox, I've tried nm-applet but even when I execute it via terminal I get errors, any ideas?
No... Well it's kind of hard to troubleshoot a problem when you have to imagine the error messages.
[QUOTE=Boris-B;34996764]I've been learning Ruby for the past 3 days. Do you guys think it's a good replacement for bash scripting?[/QUOTE] The each have their uses. For short little scripts I like to use Python, but I use Bash if I want to run like a sequence of shell commands. Basically I use Python for more programmy things, and Bash for shell stuff.
[QUOTE=Koenigsegg;34717382]The bios are outdated and discontinued and flat-out ignore anything but the hard drive. Its impossible to boot from anything and the only way i can install a OS is to do a hard drive swap.

Turns out my CD drive is broken, So now i'm going to try to boot off a thumb drive with a iso loaded using UNetbootin.

Every time I use one I have to double check to see what is the fucking hell !=, >, or < are. From what I've seen from Ruby it seems like it will do the job. I want a language that will let me get things done quickly. For example, a few weeks back I wrote a script to test the speed of drupal (opensource CMS). By test, of course, I mean spam the living shit out of it to see how well it would handle having 1000-2000 posts. I used bash and cURL. It worked pretty well, but bash always seemed to get in my way. I think that ruby will work for me. I have a script that I need to do for work. I'll report on how well ruby did the job.

I think Perl works pretty well for doing stuff Bash is good at (running shell programs)
if you really must have a bash replacement use either zsh or python. I think python would be better for you since you don't like bash's if statements and zsh uses the same syntax
I have tried python back in the day, I find it ok. I am enjoying ruby more than what I remember of python. I haven't tried perl tho. I have heard a lot of good stuff about it, and some less than good stuff. I'll give perl a shot and I'll look into python to refresh my memory.
you can't not like python it's the best language ever
perl master race
Just a quick question guys. I'm completely new to Linux so I apologise if I don't make much sense. On Sunday I installed Xubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot as a dual boot onto my netbook, and then added CompizConfig Settings Manager so I could use the workspaces easier via a cube. Yesterday I booted up my netbook and it wouldn't work, nothing in CCSM works for that matter. The settings are still there and enabled, but it's like it is not applying them if that makes sense? Any way I could fix this?
[QUOTE=Syrex;35012173]I'm having trouble with getting a network manager to work on openbox, I've tried nm-applet but even when I execute it via terminal I get errors, any ideas?[/QUOTE] Never mind, i got wicd instead and it works excellent
hey fellas, i think this is the correct thread for this question im completely new to linux so please answer in a way i could understand... well, i just recently installed xbmc on my old laptop, it works quite well except for the fact that the video graphics isnt working correctly because when i am watching videos it speeds up and then slowing down to normal speed, and then speeding up again im pretty sure its the video drivers thats not compatible or something with my graphics card which is an old ati radeon xpress 200m from ive seen is that you CAN fix it, but the way people explain stuff on several other forums, im just handfallen if someone knows a fix for my video drivers i would be forever grateful!
help, I keep getting kernel panic whenever I try to boot from a Live USB of Hexxeh's Chrome OS builds, both Vanilla and Lime. I'm doing it the exact way he says to. what am I doing wrong? Is it just the newer builds? I've looked through the comments of his blog posts and it appears there's a few people complaining about it not working right. I'm going to try an older build to see if that works.

Guess I'll just throw another OS on it then, thanks.
Could I task a RJ phone cable as a LAN using Ubuntu? Essentially, I want to use a phone line between 2 computers (No LAN port on client pc, as RJ45 hadn't been invented yet or something) as a LAN instead of phone.
the RJ12 port is not an Ethernet network interface so no
Does anybody know how to switch desktops quickly with keyboard in KDE 4.8? I know the [b]CTRL+F8[/b] but like in Ubuntu you could use [b]CTRL+ALT+(Arrow keys)[/b]

I know the [b]CTRL+F8[/b] but like in Ubuntu you could use [b]CTRL+ALT+(Arrow keys)[/b][/QUOTE] Go to System Settings -> Workspace Behavior. On the Virtual Desktops menu, go to the Switching tab. For me (so apparently be default) there are no shortcuts to switch desktops. It sounds like you want to set "Switch to Next Desktop" and "Switch to Previous Desktop".
Ubuntu 12.04 (which is just beta right now) is [I]goddamned[/I] good.
[QUOTE=Elecbullet;35045995]Ubuntu 12.04 (which is just beta right now) is [I]goddamned[/I] good.[/QUOTE]Agree [editline]edited:[/editline] And the workspaces works now, thank god! [editline]edit[/editline] [IMG]http://i44.tinypic.com/sazck4.png[/IMG] Desktop looks good, the only thing that bothers me is that you ca only change the icon for the "menu" in the taskbar.
Even after using all the major DEs out there right now I keep coming back to E17...
[URL="http://i.imgur.com/F5yKQ.png"][IMG]http://i.imgur.com/F5yKQl.png[/IMG][/URL] Just got round to installing Ubuntu 12.04 on its own partition (I couldn't wait until April!). Yes, it's pretty glitchy (It's a beta after all, what do you expect?), but I must said I'm [B][I]very[/I][/B] impressed. My Wifi adapter works out of the box correctly unlike on Ubuntu 11.10 (rtl8192cu) - On any other distro it displayed all of the networks but could never actually connect. It's very fast compared to 11.10 as well. The install wizard doesn't freeze all of the time and is very smooth. Even without graphics drivers installed everything runs like a champ, graphics animations etc. Unfortunately it didn't automatically go to 1920x1080 unlike 11.10 since it wasn't supported. I'm looking forward to the actual release/release candidate.

[QUOTE=q0q;35070244]lol gnome 3 [url]http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=25481[/url][/QUOTE] That's Unity. Besides, Gnome 3 isn't that bad. I'd probably use it on my desktop if ATI's drivers weren't terribad.
That's Unity not Gnome 3.
