blip-anyone know how to start the xfce task manager from the command line ?01:00
blip-I don't seem to have xfce4-taskmanager even though I can start it fine from the menu01:00
knomeblip-, what's it called in the menu?01:01
blip-knome: hmm I just realized the one in the menu is called system monitor :/   I guess xubuntu uses the gnome tool rather than the xfce one01:02
blip-knome: yeah found it, gnome-system-monitor apparently01:03
knomeblip-, you can install xfce4-taskmanager from the repository if you want.01:03
blip-knome: nah it's fine, I want to install as little as possible to keep the system quick.   I just found it odd this choice01:04
knomeok. i suppose the choice was made for its better features, but can't really be sure. i'm asking the devs for this.01:04
blip-got another question, I'm trying to bind my laptop volume keys using the Keyboard settings... it works fine to detect the key, but what command am I meant to issue to raise sound ?   Should I be looking at xfce4-mixer or alsamixer ?   (I used usb headset sometimes btw)01:06
knomeamixer sset Master 5%- / amixer sset Master 5%+ / mute01:06
burneri just saw recent benchmarks for ubuntu v xubuntu and gnome came out ahead in most cases on phoronix01:07
burnerseems like the lxde based lubuntu is taking over on the low end hardware01:08
knomeburner, can you please link me to those benchmarks?01:08
blip-yeah same here01:08
burneri could... but my X is down... phoronix.com01:08
blip-burner: I looked for the darn lubuntu online last time... no where to be found any iso01:08
burnerbooting X, i'll find a proper link01:08
burnerblip-: it's alpha version and not really ready yet01:09
blip-and lxde just won't match xfce, I think they do desktop icons via the file manager PCManFM01:09
blip-won't match on the ease of use i mean01:09
knomeburner, there are some reasons why xubuntu might turn out to be slower than ubuntu.01:09
blip-but who cares about that01:09
blip-so it's not just me that has been noticing xfce getting slower over the last few years...01:09
blip-I find it now sits in the middle ground between KDE4 and something like Openbox01:10
knomexfce is still faster than gnome and as even gnome is going a distinct way in the future, it leaves xfce as the only "traditional" de.01:11
knomeopenbox is not a desktop environment, it's only a window manager.01:11
blip-yeah I meant openbox with the commonly used desktop env elements added on01:13
knomewell, what are those? you can use gnome DE stuff in xfce and no wonder it's slower01:13
blip-the xfwm has improved vastly in speed since 4.6... close to openbox wm now01:13
blip-knome: yeah good point.  I tried like a few choices for each,  panels were fbpanel, pypane, kicker, xfce4-panel and others.   desktop icons there was pcmanfm and this other thing I can't remember.01:15
knomeburner, i have to go to bed really soon but i'm interested in seeing those benchmarks, so please paste their link to this channel once you found it.01:16
blip-I think I did something bad, I must have uninstalled some audio stuff by mistake..... exaille and such don't switch to my usb headset for output anymore01:17
knomeblip-, i hope someone can help you01:17
knomei have to go to bed01:18
knomegood night everybody01:18
blip-yeah me too. good night01:18
blip-and thanks for the help earlier knome01:18
