aiutobuongiorno a tuttiù15:17
aiutoavrei bisogno di un aiuto sono passato da ubuntu a lubuntu visto che è un pc vecchiotto ma ora volevo sapere come fare per eliminare tutto quello che non fa parte di lubuntu dal pc per renderlo pulito15:18
aiutoho sbagliato canale o forse nessuno parla italiano ?15:21
MrChrisDruifaiuto; this is an English channel, lubuntu doesn't have an italiano channel15:22
aiutoah ok thanks, then try using the translator to ask for help15:23
aiutoI need help I switched from ubuntu to Lubuntu as it is an old-fashioned PC but now I wanted to know how to eliminate all that is not part of Lubuntu from PC to make it clean15:24
MrChrisDruifaiuto; get the mini-iso and install "lubuntu-core". You are talking about a fresh install right?15:25
aiutonot really a terminal I gave the command apt-get install Lubuntu-desktop and now I do not know what to do to eliminate the rest15:26
aiutoubuntu 11.1015:26
MrChrisDruifEasiest way is to reinstall it completely, otherwise remove ALL lubuntu packages and install lubuntu-core instead of lubuntu-desktop15:27
aiutook if you advise me so then drain and gate-core Lubuntu everything else, I wanted to solve without format but if it is the best solution then I have to do it15:29
aiutoterminal can not do it?15:30
MrChrisDruifaiuto; I said EASIEST, not per se the best15:30
aiutoI can install Lubuntu-core from the terminal?15:31
phillwaiuto: he only way I can think of is to use the lubuntu-desktop meta package15:31
MrChrisDruifphillw; he wants just the core packages of lubuntu15:32
phillwnever tried to un-install the desktop. I can fire up a test VM if you don't mind waiting a while15:32
aiutois what I did but I wanted to clean up your computer to remove gnome and unity15:33
phillwMrChrisDruif: he installed lubuntu-desktop and now wants rid of it. That is the only way I can think of.15:33
aiutomy computer* sorry for my english15:33
MrChrisDruifOw, you want to remove all the muck from gnome/unity?15:34
phillwaiuto: you could use a variation of the psycho-cats tutorial...15:34
aiutoyes only lubuntu15:35
phillwaiuto: did you just have minimal install on, or did you have another flavour of ubuntu on before?15:35
MrChrisDruifHe switched from normal Ubuntu to Lubuntu it seems15:36
aiutoI had installed Ubuntu 11.10 and I gave the command to the terminal apt-get install desktop-Lubuntu15:37
phillwaiuto: use the 'pure-lxde' at http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/purelxde  just change the end bit from && sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop  to && sudo apt-get install lubuntu-core15:37
phillwthat will rid you of gnome stuff etc & just put on lubuntu-core.15:38
phillwelse, you can leave it as is and get the default lubuntu-desktop.15:39
aiutoI'll be back for a moment the work is calling me tnk15:40

venik212the lubuntu panel is misbehaving-- is it broken?  the launch apps panel got stuck on the right, and I want it on the left of the bottom panel.16:35
venik212I also have trouble with the R COmmander-- it works perfectly on the same computer if I log in with Unity, but does not get beyond the terminal if I log in in Lubuntu16:36
stachurs1ihello, i have always had a weird thing with dual monitor in lubuntu where i had to have a .config script with an xrandr command,16:44
stachurs1ibut after the last update, it stopped working and i have to execute it manually after booting into the desktop environment finishes,16:44
stachurs1ibut stuff is still messed up...any time a window gains focus it moves itself to an area that straddles both monitors. that's extremely frustrating16:45
=== stachurs1i is now known as panfist
phillwvenik212: do you mean the 'menu' icon?16:49
venik212phil-- I mean the icons of the apps on the panel are all on the right side of the panel, on the bottom17:05
phillwvenik212: I'm sorry, I know how to fix this, but am in a QA meeting - will you still be about in 1 hour if no-one else comes on to help?17:08
venik212gphil--reat-- I'll stay on line17:15
MrChrisDruifvenik212; what is the issue?17:16
phillwMrChrisDruif: (16:35:15) venik212: the lubuntu panel is misbehaving-- is it broken?  the launch apps panel got stuck on the right, and I want it on the left of the bottom panel.  - he's gotten them all herded onto the RHS :)17:20
venik212I tried to add a launch panel on the left side, but failed17:22
venik212In general I am finding more and more issues with Lubuntu-- R Commander does not work from the menu, the touchpad app on my netbook does not work properly, and other glitches17:23
venik212I loved it, initially, but I might have to return to the disgusting Unity17:23
MrChrisDruifvenik212; you don't have to resort to that just when things don't work properly ootb17:24
MrChrisDruifA launch panel on the left?17:24
MrChrisDruifSomething like an app bar to start apps?17:24
venik212lubuntu-software-center is another example-- it "works" from the terminal, but not from the menu.  And even then, after it installs something, the apps basket is not emptied.  Alpha all the way, I guess17:24
MrChrisDruifvenik212; it's not mainstream for a reason17:25
venik212I can tell.. ;-)17:25
venik212so How do I get the favorite appls to be on the left side of the bottom panel?17:25
* MrChrisDruif doesn't remember if he had lubuntu installed on this laptop17:25
venik212and why the Alsa mixer works on one computer with Lubuntu 64 and not on another?17:26
venik212(different sound cards)17:26
MrChrisDruifMaybe it's due to the different sound cars17:27
ubot5If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.17:27
MrChrisDruifYou might be able to find the solution on any of those pages17:27
MrChrisDruifFor the sound that is17:27
venik212ubot-- that works in Ubuntu, but not in Lubuntu17:27
venik212the sound preferences are not accessible from the sound indicator17:28
MrChrisDruifAren't the commands terminal based?17:29
venik212installing the gnome-alsa-mixer gave me access to the control I needed17:44
MrChrisDruifGood to hear17:46
MrChrisDruifAnyhow, phillw will be here in about 15 minutes when his meeting ends. He'll be able to help you further17:46
smileAmberJ: hi! :)17:58
phillwhi venik212`soz for the delay, meetings are always at just the wrong time :P18:00
venik212thanks for helping18:00
venik212so How do I get the favorite appls to be on the left side of the bottom panel?18:01
phillwokies, what I propose is that we use my taskbar as a template and I'll go through the various settings with you. Once we have got a 'resonable' one up, we can look at modifiying it.18:01
phillwright-click the task bar & select add/remove Panel Items18:03
phillwSelect Panel Applets18:04
phillw1st one should be Menu18:04
venik212it is18:04
phillwnext should be Application Launch Bar18:04
phillwwhich is where we will adding you favourite apps later., followed by a spacer.18:05
venik212thanks-- I can take it from here.  It works18:05
venik212can you also help with Skype?  I installed it but it does not work18:06
phillwokies, it is not hard, just takes a bit of getting used to.18:06
phillwvenik212: if you have now got control of your sound inputs and outputs via gnome-alsa-mixer you should be able to set up your input & output devices.18:06
phillwI cannot find my head-set, so am not much help on skype atm. I have used it okay with lubuntu in the past, though.18:07
venik212I did-- once I installed the gnome alsa mixer, the sound works fine, but not in skype18:08
phillwI found the tricky part was setting up the mic as the input device alongside the dvd device sorted mine out from memory.18:08
venik212when I try the test call, I do not hear anything18:09
phillwdoes music play okay?18:09
venik212and the mics work18:09
venik212do u know how to get the ICONS ONLY in the windows task bar?18:11
venik212I know I have amny questions... ;-)18:11
phillwvenik212: sorry, no.18:13
venik212got to run-- be back later.  Thanks for the help18:14
wxli know that one18:14
phillwwxl: ẁould you pop it onto FAQ/Guides please :)18:15
wxlwell fyi right click panel > click Panel Preferences > click Panel Applets tab > click Task Bar (Window List) > click Edit button > check Icons only18:16
smiledoei! :)18:18
phillwcheers wxl18:18

MrChrisDruif<command>dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Stop</command>19:58
