snak3i've some trouble installing lubuntu on an old notebook of mine. i get an exit code 10 error for ubi-partman - already tried to the nodmraid boot option but no luck. any suggestions?00:50
phillwsnak3: how much RAM do have?00:55
phillwsnak3: you could be below ubiquity levels if the laptop is also using RAM for graphics (which they do)01:15
snak3the gfx has 16mb dedicated ram01:16
phillwsnak3: how old a laptop? as what processor does it have?01:17
snak3pentium3 m 1ghz01:19
snak3from around 200201:20
phillwsnak3: that should be okay with 10.10, but i586 support was dropped in 10.10.01:21
phillwHave had the CD self test itself?01:21
snak3i did a verify with imgburn after burning the iso, but i can start the selftest01:24
xuzashi everyone! what can i do to get smaller fonts on pidgin? lxde has always so big fonts..!!01:24
head_victimxuzas: you can change the default font to whatever font and size you prefer01:26
xuzasyes, i know and did so01:26
head_victimAh ok, sorry01:26
xuzasbut pidgin doesn't changes his fonts :|01:27
head_victimxuzas: have a quick look you need to go into tools and then preferences01:28
head_victimThis will open a preferences window.01:28
head_victimIf you click the "conversations" tab it will open that up.01:29
head_victimThere is a box at the bottom of that window with the heading "Default Formatting" and if you click the word "Font" in the table it opens a drop down box.01:29
head_victimJust tick the "smaller" option. Fingers crossed that's what you're looking for.01:29
head_victimYou can click it twice actually to make it even smaller if it's not small enough to start with.01:30
snak3phillw: cd check completed without errors01:30
xuzaswell... i did so01:31
xuzasbut it looks like nothing has changed01:32
xuzason the preferences window the font is even smaller,, but not here01:32
phillwhead_victim: can you hold the fort, I'm on 1-2-1 with someone :(01:35
xuzasi'll restart pidgin, maybe then changes will take effect01:36
head_victimxuzas: how'd it go?01:58
xuzasnothing changed01:58
xuzasi've no idea bout how to changed it01:59
head_victimI'm going to set up an irc account01:59
=== head_ is now known as head_pidgin
head_pidgindidn't change anything here either02:01
head_pidginThere is a "font" in the window here htough but all it's options are greyed out.02:01
xuzasdoes lubuntu use openbox?02:01
xuzasand i don't know why02:02
xuzasyesterday i still had the option to changed fonts from de conversation window02:03
xuzasbut now all font settings appear in grey02:03
head_pidginYou might have to manually make the change.02:04
head_pidginand also http://tiny.cc/06sn4 should help02:05
head_victimI prefer separate clients for my chat protocols, never understood what mixing them up would do but confuse me.02:07
xuzason the gtkrc file there are the same options like on the settings window02:10
xuzasnothing happens... i think02:12
head_victimAnyone use pidgin in here able to shed more light?02:12
* phillw uses pidgin, sorry I've been busy on all sorts of stuff, let me read up on what the issue is02:19
xuzassomeone heard you02:19
=== JoeSett is now known as JoeMaverickSett
phillwxuzas: I've never had fonts working in pidgin :)  I just accept it is the way it is, not the best in the world, but it's a one stop shop for my IRC, Yahoo!, MSN and AIM accounts.02:21
head_victimHow about a bug then?02:21
phillwhead_victim: TBH, for what they pack into that little programme, it's okay by me. If someone wishes to file a bug, that's up to them :)02:23
xuzasi only use de default font02:23
xuzasbut it too big02:24
snak3phillw can i downgrade xubuntu to lubuntu somehow?02:24
phillwxuzas: it's smaller than xchat :)02:24
xuzasbut i think it depends not on pidgin02:24
snak3xubuntu 10.10 install went through without any errorr02:24
JoeMaverickSettsnak3: i think you could install lubuntu-desktop and get rid of all xubuntu packages.02:25
head_victimphillw: yeah but if the option is there it should technically work. If it doesn't then it is a bug :)02:25
phillwsnak3: no, you can upgrade from xubuntu to lubuntu if you want, though :)02:25
xuzaswhen i use pidgin in ubuntu fonts are regular02:25
snak3hehe, ok. and how do i do that?02:25
xuzasbut here, under lxde/openbox...02:25
phillwsnak3: give me 30 seconds02:25
snak3ok ,thx02:26
JoeMaverickSettsudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop ?02:26
JoeMaverickSettphillw: ^02:26
JoeMaverickSettafter that get rid of other packages by using this tutorial: http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/purelxde :D02:27
phillwJoeMaverickSett: no, you have to use the no recommends bit to keep it lean :)02:27
JoeMaverickSettphillw: tbh, that's what i'd do and i don't care. :P02:27
phillwJoeMaverickSett:  ^^^^^^^^^02:27
JoeMaverickSettphillw: i refuse! :P02:27
phillwJoeMaverickSett: it links to the tutorial on psychocats :)02:28
JoeMaverickSettphillw: oh! :D02:28
xuzasi think you can try witth "apt-get lxde"02:28
phillwxuzas: you will not lubuntu, there is a good reason why me and the dev team put https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/DocumentationHelp#Install%20Lubuntu%20from%20Ubuntu%20or%20any%20Ubuntu%20flavors onto the documentation area. I'm one of the documenters for the project :P02:33
snak3i'm going for the "sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends lubuntu-desktop" version :)02:33
phillwsnak3: we can and will support that, afterall it's on our documentation area :D02:34
xuzaswell, you cached me02:35
phillwxuzas: you have an invite02:36
phillwahh, no you dont.......02:36
phillwxuzas:  /join #lubuntu-offtopic02:37
snak3it seems all went well, thx guys02:43
phillwsnak3: I know that set of instructions work :D02:45
snak3hehe, should i follow the instructions on JoeMaverickSett psychocats link also? or is that not necessary?02:46
JoeMaverickSettsnak3: the link phillw gave you also links to that :D02:46
phillwJoeMaverickSett: yes it does, but you need to alter the end of it.02:47
JoeMaverickSettphillw: alter what? :)02:47
phillwsnak3: the link from wiki tells you to alter the very end to include the -no install recommends02:49
snak3yea, i see it now02:49
snak3i just did the "sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends lubuntu-desktop"02:49
snak3without the purelxde stuff02:49
phillwI'll go stalk the forum moderator who maintains pyschocats02:49
JoeMaverickSettphillw: you can get him on facebook. :D02:50
snak3i guess i can now just execute the first part of the command without the install at the end02:51
phillwsnak3: if you're changing from, say xubutnu; then use the command line from psychocats but just alter the end to have the no recommends bit in it.02:51
JoeMaverickSettphillw: ah, that part. i get it now. :D02:53
phillwJoeMaverickSett: we use the no recommends as it saves dragging extra stuff.02:53
JoeMaverickSettphillw: ai, i got it cap'tn. :P02:53
stlsaintphillw: hey question:02:54
stlsainti just plugged in my usb headset and in ubuntu i simply click on sound icon and change input/output to the head set but i cant see to be able to do that in lubuntu as easy02:54
snak3wow removing 321 packages / 638mb....i wonder whats left from the system after that :D02:59
phillwsnak3: lubuntu is pretty small :D03:01
phillwIt will run on 512MB pen drive :)03:02
JoeMaverickSettLUBUNTU FTW!03:02
lenWell I figured out that when the wifi card doesn't work on the Thinkpad 600 it is because the yenta_socket driver is not triggering a udev event when the card is inserted.  (udevadm monitor shows nothing after insertion).  When I do manage to get it work, I see a lot of udev message in the monitor.  So the questions remains as to why udev only gets triggered some of the time when a pcmcia card is inserted.03:10
phillwlen: as you know, I'm not a dev, can you pop the question onto the mailing list?03:16
phillwlen: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/GettingInvolved03:17
jscinozHi... On a machine I recently installed lubuntu on... the LXDE menu is completely empty. However, if i switch to a VT and login and logout, when i switch back to xorg, the menu is populated... How can i make the menu have items as soon as the system boots03:37
bioterrorjscinoz, that seems to be weird problem03:44
bioterrorwe really cant help with that atm. could you please make a  bug report?03:45
bioterroror mail to the list: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/GettingInvolved03:45
benjr1this might be a stupid question but how do i access my external drive09:40
benjr1its plugged in but i dont know where to find it09:40
benjr1perhaps lubuntu just isnt for me, ill think ill reformat and put xp back on, something that just works10:04

phillwRabbitbunny: open up PCManFM and it will be there, you can put an icon on the desktop, but as far as I know you cannot yet drag stuff into it, just open and browse via it.12:38
RabbitbunnyDoes it say trash on it or something?12:39
szczurphillw, you can drag icons in development version :)12:39
phillwtrash or wastebin.12:39

Rabbitbunnywhy... why is the ubuntu package so old?12:47
szczurubuntu alwes been a bit old :)12:47
szczurthat's why ppa's are in existence :)12:48
Rabbitbunnyuh, I think it's gonna be updating stuff for a while.12:53
RabbitbunnyI can't believe I deleted my VMs' disk file.12:53
RabbitbunnyThat was super retarded.12:53
RabbitbunnyI was trying to copy it, just in case and I guess I hit delete, it asked me if I was sure, and obviously I was... then my disk disappeared.12:54
RabbitbunnySuprise was extreme.12:54
RabbitbunnyDo I have to logout to get pcmanfm2 or something?12:58
phillwRabbitbunny: if you've replaced pcmanfm, then yes, you need to log out and back in for the changes to take effect.13:00
RabbitbunnyAnd it's not going to empty the trash, right?13:00
phillwRabbitbunny: nope, that is a manual task.13:00
RabbitbunnyOkay, good. Don't want to install windows and solidworks again.13:01
Rabbitbunny...the trash is empty.13:02
phillwRabbitbunny: if you pop onto #lubuntu-offtopic I'll tell you a bit more about the support for 10.0413:03
RabbitbunnySo, I deleted a file on my external NTFS formatted 1TB drive.13:03
RabbitbunnyShould I just start reinstalling windows? All of my work-output files are in my shared folder, there's no data loss, just the installations.13:03
phillwRabbitbunny: is it your windows trash that is empty or your lubuntu one?13:05
RabbitbunnyI don't run windows on real hardware, I've learned that that's just asking for problems, windows is VM only.13:05
RabbitbunnyOkay, couple issues from that. No more icone on my desktop and pcmanfm opens twice every time I login.13:22

nykurhello hello18:53
llogiqhi folks. Out of curiosity: Why doesn't LUbuntu 10.04 come with xfce-taskman and not lxtask?18:54
nykurI'm in need of a little assistance, if anybody has the time18:54
nykurI'm growing a little tired of automatic fscks at every boot, and can't figure out what's wrong18:55
nykurpretty sure my disk is not failing, and my fstab looks quite normal18:56
llogiqnykur, Have you looked at the sixth value of the line?18:56
llogiq(in /etc/fstab) is there a "0"?18:57
nykurhang on, let me check again, don't remember...18:57
llogiqSure. Just to rule out the obvious possibilities.18:59
nykurllogiq there are only four lines, do you want to see it?19:01
nykurlast line says: errors=remount-ro 0       119:02
bioterror0 019:02
llogiqThis is ok. The fifth and sixth fields of the fstabs are usually optional and default to 0.19:03
bioterrorI have 0 119:03
nykurthese fscks started to happen after an update a few weeks ago19:03
llogiqbioterror, then your fs will probably be fsckd.19:03
bioterrorI hdd will be fcukd ;)19:03
nykurI have tried running a fsck myself from live cd, and at next boot no file check. But every time since that19:04
bioterrorit might be that in shutdown or reboot, that drive doesnt get umounted properly or something19:05
bioterrorhard to say19:05
nykurand now there is a flash screen saying something about broken pipe. but my system works normally, and the ssd has passed every fsck with flying colours19:05
llogiqCan you change the line to 0 0, as bioterror said? If the field is 1, then it will be checked at boot time.19:08
* llogiq just man fstab19:08

cylobi just installed lubuntu for the first time, and my sound isnt working19:13

llogiqcylob, and what audio hardware do you have?19:34
llogiqbrb (and as always reading logs)19:41
ghostnik11hi i want to increase the number of desktops to 4 instead of the standard 2 in lubuntu 10.10 but i can't find out how19:53
llogiqghostnik11, look in the openbox configuration manager. It has a desktop tab.19:54
ghostnik11llogiq, thanks19:54
ghostnik11llogiq, nothing comes up when i select it19:55
llogiqghostnik11, can you type obconf into a shell and tell us what happens?19:56
llogiqMy lxpanel menu seems to be stuck. I just installed lxtask and got rid of xfce4-taskmanager, but the latter still shows up in the menu.19:57
ghostnik11now it showed up, don't get it, how come it didn't come up when i selected it19:57
llogiqNo idea, really. Maybe you, too, have a menu problem. ;)19:58
ghostnik11how would i go about correct that19:59
ghostnik11llogiq: thanks i have 4 desktops now20:00
llogiqno idea yet-I'm looking into it.20:01
Jan___Hi all, I just installed lubuntu next to win xp. In the beginning everything was fine. but now XP doesn't show up in the boot menu. How can I fix this?20:03
ghostnik11jan___: you have to fix grub or menulist or something like that, i had same problem yesterday and was helped out by someone in ubuntu channel20:05
bioterrorjan sudo apt-get install os-prober20:05
bioterrorJan___, sudo os-prober20:05
bioterrorJan___, sudo grub-update20:05
llogiqI was going to say that :-)20:06
Jan___Thanks a lot!20:09
llogiqghostnik11, for me "rm -rf .cache/menus && lxpanelctl restart20:10
cylobllogiq: sorry im back. how do i find out what my audio hardware is?20:11
llogiqthis resets the menu cache.20:11

bioterrorwhat does alsamixer say20:14
cylobit looks like a bunch of volume controls20:14
cylobit brings that up20:14
llogiqIs something muted? (alsamixer shows MM)20:17
ghostnik11llogiq: i run the two commands and my 4 desktops are gone and i am down to 120:17
ghostnik11llogiq; i am going to restart my system and see if they come back20:18
cylobi dont see an MM20:18
cyloboh wait20:18
cylobfront mic, surround, center, lfe, line, mic20:19
cylobthose are muted20:19
bioterrormaster's and pcm are not?20:20
llogiqok, these are all inputs. All but surround...20:20
llogiqMaybe unmute surround, center, lfe, just to be sure?20:21
cylobmaybe i messed something up trying to install "radio tray" earlier, and then found out it wouldnt work due to "missing gstreamer plugins"20:21
cylobim just gonna reinstall lubuntu20:21
bioterrorI'm just upgrading a fresh installation20:22
cylobyeah it seems pretty nice20:23
cylobjust wish my sound would work20:23
cylobmaybe is hould go with xubuntu but im thinking its not as fast20:24
ghostnik11okay so i found out that when i try and select openbox, it takes dow my windows and leaves only one shown but the 4 are still there as when i use alt + ctrl+ left/right i go to the different desktops20:26
cousteau`irssiok... I wonder where my webcam went, it has just disappeared20:27
llogiqghostnik11, that's how desktops work.20:28
llogiqYou can configure openbox to do about everything to windows regarding desktop.20:29
llogiqcousteau`irssi, is this a lubuntu issue or a "why, somebody stole my webcam issue"? :-)20:29
llogiqcu folks.20:32
ghostnik11llogiq, well it is okay as long as i have them, there are still some stuff i want to try and change like better wallpaper and them and apperance20:32
