uofm49426anyone help me with a setup04:23
uofm49426dual boat setup with windows and lubuntu04:23
Unit193What do you need?04:23
uofm49426i use window for school after school it can go04:24
uofm49426i want to install linux on a sdhc windows cant even see it so it needs the harddrive04:25
uofm49426its only a 40 hd running at 4200 rpm so it can have it04:26
uofm49426i cant boot from sdhc but can grub boat it04:27
uofm49426if its wrote to the harddrive mdr04:28
Unit193That would mean if you didn't have the card in the computer, you couldn't boot windows04:29
uofm49426other question can ubuntu win install install the space from seperate hd04:30
uofm49426i would just keep it in04:30
Unit193I don't understand the second question04:31
uofm49426hd is a 1.8 ide hard not cheap to get bigger the 6004:31
Unit193You can dual-boot with 2 HDDs (I do this)04:32
uofm49426the program that install ubuntu in a ntfs partion04:32
uofm49426i want to get a sdhc 16 gb to install linux on04:33
uofm49426but it will not boat as a default drive its a thinkpad x4104:34
* Unit193 has never used wubi04:35
Unit193Maybe someone else can help (just wait for them)04:35
uofm49426if grub is install to the harddrive will it boat a sdhc04:36
uofm49426if grub is install to the harddrive will it boot a sdhc04:36
Unit193I don't know, but I would guess it might04:37
uofm49426see music and videos and stuff i can keep on window for space all things that take up a lot of space and use it from lubuntu so i dont need alot of space for linux04:39
Unit193During bootup, can you open the boot menu and see the SD card in the menu? if so it might be better not to install grub04:44
bioterrorsd cards aint that different from USB sticks04:51
bioterrorwhen I made my lubuntu pendrive, I booted lubuntu cd, inserted usb stick, checked that it gets mouted and started installation04:52
bioterrorUnit193, remember to use ext2 as a filesystem then04:52
uofm49426on the sd read is not04:54
uofm49426Ricoh Co Ltd R5C822 SD/SDIO/MMC/MS/MSPro Host Adapter (rev 1304:55
uofm49426that is the device name04:55
uofm49426laptop is a thinkpad x4104:56
uofm49426the install does see it04:56
uofm49426let me try making the card boot able because in its state it not active its just used as space04:58
uofm49426i really dont want to have usbs device running a os05:02
jubei-za When i try to boot up lubuntu with my plasma tv set to RGB mode to use it as secondary monitor, for some strange reason all the fonts are TINY, ive tried to change the font sizes but not luck, ive tried to use this link(http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=636446) but there is no xorg.conf in /etc/X11/ -im using lxde so not even sure if xorg.conf is used and not sure if there is an equivalent .conf for lxde - could someone point me in07:53
jubei-zathe right direction?07:53
Unit193jubei-za: You need to run "sudo X -configure"07:55
Unit193Then move the output file into /etc/X1107:55
jubei-zawill that create an xorg.conf i can work with?07:55
jubei-zaok lemme try it out, tx07:56
Unit193You'll need to stop lxdm07:56
jubei-zaarr, just found that out07:56
jubei-zaso i need to go into cmd line only mode?07:56
jubei-zahangon isnt lxdm the login manager?07:57
Unit193Just change to VT107:57
jubei-zaplease excuse me only been running on linux for a week, what is VT1 ?07:57
bioterrorvirtual terminal 1?07:58
bioterrorI think Unit193 means TTY1 ;)07:58
Unit193Yeah, it's 3am and I'm not thinking all that great07:58
bioterrorI forgive you ;))07:58
bioterrorjubei-za, if your plasma-tv is just "hd-ready", I suggest to use 800x600 resolution ;)07:59
jubei-zaits a really old plasma tv, i know its not HD, not sure if its hd-ready, had it working on windows at 1024x768 .. ?08:00
bioterrorlinux has more worse fonts than windows08:01
jubei-zaok that virtual terminal is scary .. is there an easier way to get back into the GUI than typing out "lxdm"08:01
bioterrorthat's for sure08:01
jubei-zaok i'll take your word for it :)08:01
bioterrorctrl+alt+f7 = X08:01
jubei-zaaaah nice08:01
jubei-zaok i ran lxdm in ctrl-alt-f1 ("virtual terminal 1" ??) so i dont think its gonna work there, so i tried ctrl+alt+f6 and get the same error08:03
bioterrorsudo service lxdm restart08:04
jubei-zarestart: unknown instance08:04
bioterrorwhich version of lubuntu are you running?08:05
jubei-zaim frigging confused, i botched the install pretty bad as well, lubuntu over kubuntu over ubuntu(all 10.10)08:05
ubot5The X Window System is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart your X, type « sudo /etc/init.d/?dm restart » in a console - To fix screen resolution or other X problems: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution08:06
Unit193I think X might be restartin08:08

bioterrorhttp://ricecows.org/snap.png ;)08:15
bioterrorthat's awesome tool08:16
jubei-zayou reckon i should try out arch linux or the snapshot tool? ;)08:17
jubei-zaok so i went into the tty1 (is this called the virtual console 1?) and i did that sudo X -configure and same error08:20
jubei-zai lost the logs whats the restart command agan?08:20

Unit193You need to stop it, run the command, then start X08:21
jubei-zai need to stop X?08:22
Unit193You can't reconfigure X if it's running08:22
jubei-zaside question: is there a way to search the man pages ?08:23
Unit193I think you can search the online pages...08:23
jubei-zaok figured that one out, Konsole lets me search it with ctrl+f08:23
jubei-zamy bad08:23
jubei-zaim pretty tired myself08:24
jubei-zaits 9am here in south africa and i been up all night tryna make the tv work08:24
Unit193I have not searched them in lubuntu08:25
jubei-zaok so i do the restart script in !x and i get "invalid key MIT_MAGIC_COOKIE1" printed over and over, and then i cant do anything from the other tty'd08:35
jubei-zaso i have to hold down the power button to shutdown this laptop08:36
jubei-zashutdown -h now doesnt work08:36
jubei-zai dont even get a console08:36
jubei-zain the other tty things08:36
jubei-zawhats the command to stop the X server?08:36
Unit193sudo /etc/init.d/lxdm stop ?08:37
bioterrorthat's the one08:38
bioterrorjubei-za, your computer sounds weir :D08:38
Unit193Just about to ask where you went ;)08:38
bioterrorI was talking there with two guys08:38
bioterrorthey started with fukushima and then we went from thorium power plant in china to volvo cars, and saab cars to politics :D08:38
jubei-zaok so im gonna go into one of the tty's and and stop the X server? using "sudo etc/init.d/lxdm stop"08:39
jubei-zaand then sudo X -configre08:39
jubei-zaok brb, might have to restart again :)08:40
bioterrorjubei-za, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Documentation/FAQ there's a guide for creating Xorg.conf08:40
bioterrorabout screen resolution08:40
jubei-zaok tx i'll read up on that08:41
jubei-zai ran that etc/init.d/lxdm stop08:41
jubei-zasays i should use service lxdm stop08:41
jubei-zaor stop lxdm08:41
jubei-zabut both of those claim no lxdm service runnig08:42
Unit193ls /etc/init.d |grep dm <--- see what that gives you08:42
bioterroris that what you use for logging in?08:43
jubei-zaim using the kdm login manager, tried to change etc/X11/default-display-manager to point to the lxdm, but i couldnt find the binary!08:45
jubei-zamaybe u can help?08:45
jubei-zaone of my many side missions in trying to get this TV to work08:45
Unit193bioterror: Would it maybe work better to reinstall?08:45
jubei-zaim pretty sure this is my problem: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=63644608:46
bioterrorsudo service stop kdm08:46
bioterrorsudo apt-get remove kde\*08:46
bioterrorsudo apt-get purge kde\*08:46
bioterrorsudo apt-get purge gnome\*08:46
bioterrorsudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop --no-install-recommends08:46
jubei-zaif ive already done apt-get install lubuntu-desktop should i do it again? will it overwrite the original package?08:47
bioterrorit's just a meta package, it will fetch what ever is needed08:48
bioterrorand I can guarantee that it will get removed when you remove all gnome packages08:48
jubei-zahmm ok, im gonna call it a night, thanks for the help - so nice to speak with someone, i'll probably be back to bug u guys08:50
