RocketplumberI have a question, if anyone can help...05:24
RocketplumberJust installed xubuntu on a laptop, now trying to get the external display VGA output to work.05:24
RocketplumberExternal monitor says "no siganl", remains blank- I guess my laptop isn't putting anything out.05:25
Rocketplumbero how do I persuade it to wake up the VGA port?05:25
pleia2Rocketplumber: that can be tricky because there are all kinds of ways laptops handle this, but a few suggestions...05:26
pleia2is there a function keep combination on the laptop to send to an external source? (that's what mine has)05:26
pleia2might also want to try booting up with vga plugged in, see if it sees it when plugged in from boot05:26
RocketplumberNo function display options other than the default key, and xubuntu doesn't show any display options other thn the default05:28
Rocketplumberwhoops, that got garbled05:28
RocketplumberXB sees only default monitor, no external devices05:29
pleia2ok, so the laptop doesn't have a key to switch to vga/05:30
RocketplumberI guess I'll try booting with VGA pluged in- wish me luck :)05:30
Rocketplumberpleia2, no05:30
pleia2good luck :)05:30
pleia2huh, unusual05:30
Rocketplumberah, wait a minute...05:30
RocketplumberYes, ther IS a display-thanks pleia05:31
pleia2woo, work?05:31
RocketplumberYep. fn-f5 did it, I never really LOOKED hard at the fn symbols on the kb.05:32
Rocketplumbermuchas gracias05:32
pleia2you're welcome :)05:32

patman023hey all, any guesses on performance of ubuntu vs xubuntu on a 2000-vintage POS dell? p3 sub 1GHz 256 mb ram? client has 0 money (paying in coffee) and I couldnt salvage windows due to HDD slowly dying07:40
moetunesI would use a lighter distro on thar patman023 like crunchbang07:52
patman023moetunes, would do but client is ubernoob08:22
patman023ie. first pc, and it used to run win2k08:23
moetunespatman023: the light disros can be user freindly with some setup first08:24
patman023plus im no whiz myself- only 4 months on any *nix08:24
patman023still learning commline08:24
moetunespatman023: xubuntu and ubuntu use about the same resources these days08:25
moetunesa minimal install with xfce is still light tho08:29
ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD08:30
pleia2patman023: is there any way you can put slightly more ram in it? I'm running xubuntu (and ubuntu too) on a 700mhz compaq laptop with 384M ram and it runs ok (watching movies on it right now)08:30
patman023nope zero budget08:36
