bioterrormanfredrasta, did you get it working?18:14
esinghi :)21:04
esingHOw much space should give the partition /home ? I have 80 gb in total on my hdd21:04
esingI want to encrypt my /home partition too :)21:05
bioterrordont encrypt21:05
bioterrorit doesnt work21:05
esingheh :)21:06
esingwould you recommend to make partitions?21:06
bioterroryes and now21:06
bioterrorI'm a huge fan of two partitions21:07
bioterror2x RAM for SWAP and rest for /21:07
esingwould you recommend me to make 2x ram partitions too iam a normal ordinary pc user21:07
esingwho watches TV, uses Internet and office :)21:07
bioterroris that laptop?21:08
esingthinkpad t4321:08
bioterrorthen I would suggest21:09
bioterrorif you're going to hibernate21:09
esingbut I never have much user data like my videos & music stuff never exceed 20 gb21:09
bioterrorwhen you hibernate your laptop it will write RAM to swap21:10
esingwhat do you mean by hibernateE21:11
esingi turn off my laptop every day21:11
esingi think i give my /home folder 30 gb21:12
esingmb less :)21:12
bioterrorI just suggest you to use whole hard drive21:13
esingI just created the /home drive21:14
esingshould I delete it agaiN?21:14
bioterrorwhy you want it to be separate21:15
esingfirst i wanted it to be seperated because of encryption21:15
esingi only wanted to encrypt /home21:15
esingsecondly (which i dont care much) is the use for formating only the system not /home21:16
esingwhy do you think encrypition sucks?21:16
bioterrorgive 15G for /, 2x RAM for the SWAP and rest for /home21:16
bioterror15GB is way too much for the /, but you never know :D21:17
bioterrormy whole lubuntu is 15GB /21:17
esingis hibernating very usefull?21:17
bioterroresing, some people do like it, I'm a suspend guy21:17
bioterrorphillw, do you suspend or hiernate your piglet when you take it with you?21:18
esingi think iam the suspend guy too21:18
esingi never used hibernating with windows21:18
esingso I wont need those extra partitions21:19
esingbut why do you think encryption doesnt work?21:19
esingslows my laptop too much?21:19
esingafter setting my /Home for 40 gb21:21
esingi have 40 gb left21:21
esinghow can I put the remaining 40 gb to the system space?21:21
esingthere is the " free space 40 gb" :: should I just press installation?21:22
bioterror40GB is alot for /21:22
esingye mb21:22
esingbioterror :D21:23
esingtell me why you dislike full encryption :)21:23
esingI thought it is very good against physical attacks21:23
bioterrorbecouse there's problems with it in lubuntu21:24
bioterrortrying to recall which those was21:24
esingshould I put the bootloader in SD1 or /dev/sda ATA WDC (my hdd)21:24
esingAh I see21:24
esingthen I will install everything in one thing21:24
bioterrorGRUB goes to /dev/sda21:24
esingbecause I wont need partitions without encryption21:24
esingk thx21:24
bioterrorno numbers21:24
bioterrorbut still21:24
bioterrorI think you should give ~10GB for /21:25
bioterrorT43, I think you have 1GB of RAM21:25
bioterrorso 2GB for SWAP and rest for /home21:25
esingwhat if I download something which has 20 gb I couldnt download it on /home21:25
esingwhy 2 gb for swap when I dont use hibernating?21:25
esingi have 1,5 gb ram btw21:26
esinggot t43p21:26
bioterrornice, 1400x105021:26
bioterrormy wife has t40p ;)21:26
esingheh awesome :)21:26
esingwhat r u using?21:26
bioterrorat the moment Dell Latitude D42021:27
bioterrorclose to X40, I think21:27
bioterroresing, well, even tho you're not going to hibernate, if some program decides to leak RAM, you still have swap21:28
esingx40 is awesome aswell,  with the latitude d420 iam not familiar but I guess latitude is good due of many business people use it21:28
bioterrorthe situation isnt lost and you can have some control to kill applications21:28
esingi see21:29
bioterroryep, this is my worklaptop21:29
esingi like lubuntu much21:29
esingit looks very clean21:29
bioterrorhope you understand what I ment by having some RAM21:29
bioterrorfor just in case21:29
esingyea sure21:29
esingin german we call it " auslagerungsspeicher"21:30
esingwhen ram is full in use it puts some stuff on space21:30
esingbut I started the installation 5 minutes ago21:30
esingbecause I need to get finished before 23:00 :D21:30
bioterrorlubuntu installation takes about 20mins21:31
esingah perfect21:31
bioterroractually every distribution can be installed in 20mins21:31
bioterrorexcept gentoo if you do it with stages21:31
esingwhy didnt the lubuntu developers fixed the encryption?21:31
bioterrorand sourcemage or what ever those linux from scratch kinda distros are21:31
esinglubuntu has only a different desktop environment but the rest would be ubuntu wouldn it21:32
esingand with ubuntu encryption works21:32
bioterrorahh, it's a bug in LXDM21:33
esingdid you see how much is going on in northafrica ^^21:33
esingah I see LXDM is the fault :D21:33
esingbut therefore my laptop wont slow down without encryption21:34
esingI actually dont need encryption21:34
bioterrorI had encrypted home21:34
bioterrorI dont anymore :D21:35
bioterrorI was making backups and I got bad sectors while making 'em21:35
esinghow long does take a backup?21:35
bioterrordo you have now that 3-4GB SWAP?21:35
esingnah I dont :P21:35
bioterrorhow much you put for the swap?21:36
esingI just pressed normal installation21:36
esingI made no partitions21:36
bioterroryou chose "use whole hard disk2?21:36
bioterrornice ;D21:36
esingMaybe it is creating a swap too with the normal installation21:37
bioterroryes it is21:37
esingah good21:37
bioterroresing, when you're done with the installation, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Documentation/FAQ check that. we've made it for you new users21:37
esinggood I do so21:38
esingbest about linux/lubuntu is that it is free21:46
esingyou can use it all over the world, fast installation21:47
esingmany free programs21:47
esingi.e. gimp21:48
esingfor adobe photoshop you pay +150 euros21:48
bioterrorfor CS you pay some more21:48
bioterrorI do some photo editing21:49
bioterrorI used have a Mac and CS221:49
esingbut now gimp is totally sufficient?21:49
bioterrorbut I noticed that I can do the same with linux and GIMP21:49
esing*awesome :D21:49
bioterroropen picture, resize, do some curves tweaking, save (for web, as it saves color changes ;)21:50

esingszczur *calling*23:18
esingszczur how can I delete a submenu?23:18
esing like "games"23:18
szczurto remove folder in menu you would need to remove every entry in it23:19
szczurentries are made by addint an activator to /usr/share/applications23:19
szczuractivator is something like a shortcut23:19
szczurso if i would have a menu called "things" and in this menu would be an entry called Gedit23:20
szczurremoving the activator for getind would remove the entry i think23:20
szczurbut i may be wrong23:20
szczurlemme try this23:20
szczurhang on23:20
* szczur is installing lxpanel23:21
szczurhmm, there is easier way23:23
szczuryou can edit a /etc/xdg/menus/lxde-applications.menu23:24
szczurand remove the parts you don't want23:24
esingI will try immediatly23:24
szczurlemme try this, before i will start to remove my files23:25
szczurdon't do anything23:25
szczurbefore i wont do this to myself23:25
szczuryou will be fine23:25
esingok sir :)23:25
szczuri can recover my system :P23:25
szczurit worked23:27
esingperfect thx :D23:27
szczurfor example23:27
szczuri removed this part23:27
szczurand i don't have "Others" entry anymore23:28
szczurthis should be self-explainable23:28
esingmy submenus are in german23:29
esingthe file shows them in english23:29
szczurshould work either way23:29
szczurlemme check something23:29
szczurok confirmed23:30
esingand how would I change only one application?23:30
szczurmy entry was in Polish. "Others" means "Inne"  and this entry was removed23:31
szczurfor only one application23:31
hblounthi. how do i delete a shortcut in the menu? the "start menu" like thing23:32
szczuresing, for removing on eapplication remove the file in /usr/share/application23:33
esingah k, and what if I want only the shortcut to be delete and not the app?23:34
szczurthat will remove the enttry23:34
szczurnot the app23:34
szczuresing, but wait one more time23:35
szczurthere's a program called alacarte23:35
szczuralso knoiw as gnome menu editor23:35
szczuri'll try if it works with lxpanel23:36
szczurthis would be even easier23:36
szczurif not, removing the files in applications folder would be the way to go23:36
szczuryou can use alacarte23:38
szczurit will be easier23:38
szczurfor you23:38
szczursudo apt-get install alacarte23:38
szczurbut unticking the entries wil not work23:38
szczuryou have to remove them23:38
szczursame thing applies to hblount23:39
esingso i do it the way u mentioned before23:40
esingdamn my back hurts :/23:40
esingi was too much on computer today i fear23:40
esingcan i edit the file off th shell either23:45
esingbecause with vi it troubles me too much23:46
szczuryou can use nano23:47
szczuror gedit23:47
esingah nano i remember23:47
szczuror whatever you want23:47
esingthanks :)23:48
esingit worked23:49
hblountso delete the folder in usr/share?23:49
esinghblount you want to change submenus or the menu on the taskbar?23:50
hblounti want to delete shortcut in the "start menu"23:50
esingclick right click on the taskbar23:50
esingthen panel properties23:51
esingthen panel more23:51
esingthere you can add and delete any shortcuts on the taskbar23:51
hblountu mean "panel preferences"?23:52
hblounti dont see anything that lets me remove/delete shortcuts23:52
szczurhblount, let me specify, you'd like to remove entries in LXPanel menu (the "start" menu)23:53
szczurif so, use alacarte, and delete the entries you want to remove23:54
hblountoh. sorry i thought it didnt work. esing is doing something different than me23:55
hblounti guess23:55
szczurif you want to remove whole submenu, edit /etc/xdg/menus/lxde-applications.menu file23:55
szczurand remove part you don't want to see23:55
hblounti have to use command line for alacarte?23:57
szczuryou can run it from terminal23:58
szczurbut it is graphical editor23:58
szczurso there's no thing to worry about23:58
