rawfodogis there a way for lubuntu to use power saving for laptop ?02:59
rawfodogI would like the screen to turn off / stand by03:00
Unit193Should have options in xscreensaver for turning off the screen03:01
rawfodogI dont think the screen actually TURNS OFF03:02
rawfodogit just goes black03:02
rawfodog(but there is still light)03:07
pcroquerawfodog: Try the Monitor tab in xfce4-power-manager-settings. Maybe that will do what you want.03:07

giuseppe60anyone know how to install avidemux in Lubuntu?16:57
pcroquegiuseppe60: I haven't used it...but it looks like it's in the repositories.17:13

pcroquesudo apt-get install avidemux (for the GTK version)17:13
giuseppe60NO  lubuntu software center17:15
pcroqueSorry...can't help you there...I have no experience with the Software Center17:16
phillwgiuseppe60: you do not need software centre to install, use the terminal and issue the command pcroque gave you :)17:17
giuseppe60ok thanks17:18
pcroquegiuseppe60: but leave off the (for the GTK version) part...just type: sudo apt-get install avidemux17:18
giuseppe60I put in terminal  sudo apt-get install avidemux17:19
pcroquegiuseppe60: Yes. Then you will be asked for your login password. And then you will be asked if you want to continue. Once you answer yes it will then install the program.17:21
giuseppe60you are all very nice17:22

wxlAzertify: yep, vbox is fab18:01
AzertifyGreat, I don't have too much experience with vbox, does it perform as well as VMware workstation.18:02

wxlAzertify: well can't help you as i'm not a big fan of non-free software18:03
wxlAzertify: i'd argue with phillw as i've had nothing but great luck with vbox and i've used it on a variety of different hosts with a variety of different guests18:03
phillwAzertify: try the kvm suite18:03
AzertifyWhat's kvm like?18:03
AzertifyI don't know what files it uses.18:03
phillwwxl: so had I until guest-additions and the new linux kernel fell out!18:03
wxladmittedly i have been meaning to try out kvm18:04
wxlphillw: i use guest-additions on every guest i have!18:04

phillwwxl: Azertify https://help.ubuntu.com/community/KVM18:05
phillwQemu is the GUI to use for setting them up, else just use the command line :)18:05
AzertifySounds good.18:06
wxlphillw: am i right that kvm is inheriently part of the linux kernel??18:07

giuseppe60"Safari" you can put it on Lubuntu?19:19
wxlgiuseppe60: afaik only via wine19:20

wxlgiuseppe60: it's not always seamless/fully functional so i'd suggest a different browser19:21
wxlgiuseppe60: given you were messing with midori yesterday should i assume you want a webkit browser?19:22
giuseppe60wxl,  because firefox, chromium, opera, sometimes crashes web pages: too heavy19:28
wxlgiuseppe60: try arora or dillo19:30
wxlgiuseppe60: dillo will DEFINITELY work, though it's a little limited on features19:30
wxlgiuseppe60: also it may be useful to look at which web pages are crashing. if flash/java pages are crashing, we should explore what flash/java you have installed19:31
wxlgiuseppe60: in other words, it may not be the browser at all19:31
giuseppe60wxl,   the problem is Java19:32
wxlgiuseppe60: which java do you have installed?19:32
wxlgiuseppe60: (i might point out: java is really heavy)19:33
wxlgiuseppe60: i avoid using java like the plague19:33
giuseppe60"arora" not19:33
giuseppe60wxl, java is installed on my pc19:34

giuseppe60wxl,   Java is not installed automatically?19:37
wxli wonder…19:38
wxl!java | giuseppe6019:38
ubottugiuseppe60: To just use java you need a "Java Runtime Environment" (JRE) and/or a browser plugin.

leszekseems not to be the reason21:24
leszekjust paste the .xsession-errors file somewhere (not here, upload it to a nopaste service)21:24
kanliotactually i don't think it's crashed in this logon yet21:25
kanliotok now it crashed21:25
kanliotno nothing in xsession errors21:27
kanliotit was pcmanfm that crashed this time21:27
leszekkanliot: hmm... I am only guessing, but do gnome-mplayer and gnome-do store an icon in the tray ?21:27
leszekok pcmanfm is not related to lxpanel21:27
leszekthan its strange21:27
leszekespecially if there is no error in .xsession-errors21:28
wxlyou guys trying to figure that runaway lxpanel?21:28
wxlcuz i'll tell you right now it ain't gnome-mplayer21:28
leszekbecause this should be the default log if an application encounters an error and reports it21:28
kanlioti have randome crashes right after loging in21:28
leszekwxl: my guess was the tray in lxpanel crashing it21:29
kanliotanyhow i can code, i'm just not very good21:29
kanliotshould i just build pcmanfm or something?21:30
wxlso anything in the tray causes it?21:30
kanliotnope that's not my bug21:30
leszekwxl: that might be the case. Every app that normally stores an icon in the tray could cause a crash when the tray icon should be rendered (normally those errors that cause the crash should be X errors)21:32
leszekat least this is a common error I encountered with tray applications like stalonetray21:33

Unit193Yep, try startlubuntu22:10
venik212When I click on an app from the main menu, it should open22:11
labUnit193: thanks, I just tried that.22:11
venik212it does in gnome/kde/Unity, but some apps do not start in Lubuntu (R and python are two examples)22:11
venik212any help?22:12
Unit193R? And python is a scripting language, basically not exactly something you "open"22:12
holsteinyeah... python wont "open"... venik212: try starting things from the terminal and read errors22:13
venik212I tried-- it opens with no errors that way (from the terminal)22:14
Unit193You should open the desktop file and see if something is amiss22:14
holsteinyup... the menu entry is bad somehow...22:14
venik212holstein-- remind me where the desktop files are hiding?22:15
labUnit193: With startlubuntu, nothing happens. No outout22:15
Unit193lab: Is X running? You *may* have to start it first22:16
venik212yes, X is running22:16
venik212otherwise I would not have a gui menu, I think..22:17
Unit193venik212: That wasn't to you22:17
labUnit193: good point. that's what was wrong.22:18
venik212in ~/home/user/.config/lxsession/lxde I only find desktop.conf22:18

martiiis there any way I can tell lxde to use card 1 instead of card 0 as default one?22:27
venik212this is really strange: I looked at the Properties of the menu entry, and it has the correct sh command and path, yet when it starts, it just opens the terminal and stops there22:30

freerouteeverything got stuck when I decided to drag & drop a folder which was in a .tar archive into my home dir (ubuntu)22:43
freeroutein future cases, what is the command of going into CLI mode and restarting X / LXDE?22:44
Unit193venik212: Maybe try, at a treminal    export R_DEFAULT_PACKAGES="$R_DEFAULT_PACKAGES Rcmdr" R "$@"22:45
Unit193freeroute: Should generally be "sudo service lxdm restart" depending on what you are lookingn for22:46
venik212I just did-- no difference22:47
venik212it opens a terminal and does not show the prompt22:47
freeroutealso, I noticed that when I have pcmanfm open and I create a file (for example, irssi is run for the first time and creates a .irssi dir inside my /home), when I try to refresh to find the created dir (by furiously hitting F5), the PCmanFM crashes.22:47
freerouteUnit193: I couldn't do anything, not even open up a terminal or hit Alt+F222:47
venik212on my 64 bit Lubuntu, PCMANFM crashes often..22:48
venik212but that is a separate tale of woes22:48
freerouteUnit193: cool, and how would I go back if I wanted to? Ctrl+Alt+F1 ?22:48
venik212right now I want to R COmmander to run..22:49
Unit193!tty |back is generally F722:49
ubottuback is generally F7: To get to the TTY terminals 1-6, use the keystroke ctrl + alt + F1-F6 respectively (Alt+F7 will get you back to your graphical login).  To change the resolution for your TTY, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ChangeTTYResolution.22:49
freeroutenice, thanks22:50
Unit193venik212: Right, terminal=True doesn't look quite right, but I've never used (or heard of) the program22:51
venik212The way it works is that it runs R (a great statistical program/language), and from it, it runs the R COmmander, which is a GUI for R22:51
venik212under Unity it works just right22:52
venik212I click on the icon and it runs R from the terminal and then R Commander22:52
venik212but not under Lubuntu/Lxde22:52
venik212unformtunately, I cannot even edit the R COmmander desktop file, because its name has a space, or some such stupidity22:53
phillwvenik212: use a ? where the space is :)22:54
Unit193venik212: Tabcomplete will get it, you need a slash to get the space22:55
venik212I got around it, and replaced terminal=true with terminal=false, but it still fails22:56
Unit193Does  /usr/bin/R --gui=tk   by any chance work? :P22:56
venik212it does start R..22:59
venik212it opens a (white screen) terminal, and runs R in it23:00
venik212I guess this is the price I must pay to run Lubuntu, which I love otherwise23:03
