phillwUnit193: Would you be so kind as to create a wiki page for "customisation"?01:22
phillwUnit193: with the ML discussing what apps are going to be in 12.10, now is a good a time as any :)01:23
Unit193Meh, it{s already on 神癒礁湖{s blog.01:24
bananapieDo you know where I can find an article listing the differences in software between lubuntu and ubuntu ( other than the window manager ) ?01:36
bananapiequestion, is he lubuntu CD a 'live' cd ?01:37

JoseeAntonioRHello! Do you know if Lubuntu can run in a Pentium I?01:58
Unit193Speed and 12.04 wouldn't as I'm sure that doesn't support PAE.02:00
Unit193Well, you'd have to go from mini.02:00
JoseeAntonioRUnit193: And if there's no swap?02:18
Unit193As you still haven't said full specs, I'm going to assume low and say I don't think so.02:18
JoseeAntonioRUnit193: I don't have full specs, the PCs are not mine. I'll check everything beforehand. Thanks02:21
Unit193Remember about 12.04 and that you will need different steps if it doesn't support PAE, as well as the other restrictions of the Ubuntu kernel.02:22
JoseeAntonioRHmm, right.02:23
JoseeAntonioRUnit193: I have a prob, there's no Internet connection in the place where the PCs are, so I can't fetch any packages :S02:26

cristian_cI wanted to add the volume icon on the panel because it had disappeared08:11
cristian_cSo I tried to add it, but did not appear on the desktop08:13
cristian_cThen I discovered that it was a bug08:14
ubottuLaunchpad bug 824659 in lxpanel (Ubuntu) "/usr/lib/lxpanel/plugins/volumealsa.so not showing" [Undecided,Confirmed]08:15
cristian_cBut I did not realize how the user had solved08:16
cristian_cSo I deleted the lxpanel directory in .config and I rebooted the system08:18
cristian_cBut the panel was missing on startup08:19
cristian_ccreating a new folder, from pcmanfm I managed to open a terminal and type lxpanel08:20
cristian_cbut the terminal returns:08:20
cristian_chere is already an instance of LXPanel.  Now to exit08:21
cristian_cWhat can I do to restore the panel?08:21
DerPatecristian_c try pkill lxpanel and then restart it you have deleteed the config for the whole bar so it don't apper but started up on boot08:32
Unit193If that doesn't work, whatever changes you may have done, try reverting to see if that helps.08:34
cristian_cI try to logout08:35
monseri get permission denied when trying to open the mounted partition in pcmanfm09:04
monserthis is happening only for the partition that it is fa3209:04
monseri have not problems with other mounted partitions ntfs09:05
monserwhere is the problem09:05
cristian_cI restored the panel09:37
cristian_cI do not know how to see the volume applet on the panel09:38
cristian_cDo you have any idea?09:38
AklsIs 12.04 in beta now?09:49
icerootAkls: yes09:49
cristian_cAkis, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=187044209:51
icerootAkls: but i does not matter if it is alpha or beta, both are NOT designed for normal work09:52
AklsI have to install something, but I don't want to reinstall it 1 month later because of the new release09:54
icerootAkls: you dont have to reinstall09:55
iceroot!upgrade | Akls09:55
ubottuAkls: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade09:55
Aklsa big NO for upgrades09:55
icerootAkls: and also there is no reason to upgrade to the latest version just because it is the newest one09:56
Aklsdid it about 3 times in my life, every time something broke so I had to reinstall anyway...09:56
Aklsbut 12.04 is just 1 month from release, isn't it going to work ok? :)09:57
AklsI understand the risks :>09:57
iceroot2 month09:57
icerootand as i said DONT use 12.04 for normal work at the moment09:57
iceroothm ok 1.5 month09:58
Aklsok :)09:58
icerootand normally the upgrade will not broke if you dont install software from other sources09:59
icerootthe normal (l)ubuntu upgrade is tested very good09:59
icerootbut of course there can be problems so having a backup is always a good idea (not only when upgrading)09:59
icerootand for problems during the upgrade this channel is a good place, so i would suggest install 11.10 and if you need 12.04 later upgrade to that (but not on the first day just because 12.04 is newer)10:00
Akls11.10 install does not detect 11.04 and windows installed :\10:15
smile4everAkls: what's the problem? :o10:21
Aklssmile4ever, I remember ubuntu had very nice feature in installer to backup files from previous install10:22
Aklssmile4ever, but now it thinks that nothing is installed on my hdd, that's not true :\10:22
=== mh0- is now known as mh0
smile4everAkls: grub problem? :p10:23
Aklswhy grub problem? O_o10:25
Aklsif I can boot to my old system10:25
smile4everAnd the files are on your hd? :p10:25
smile4everAkls: Crazy :|10:28
Aklssmile4ever, well, I think I can work around without reinstalling lubuntu10:28
smile4evergreat :) Good luck :)10:28
Aklssmile4ever, why I want to reinstall is because 10.04 started to throw dbus errors when I launch any program10:28
Aklssmile4ever, I didn't even update or upgrade :\ what happened?10:29
AklsJadedJacob, hi :)10:29
smile4evera config file may be corrupted.. :|10:29
JadedJacobSo "lsb_release -a" in the terminal prints out the ubuntu release version10:29
JadedJacobBut for lubuntu, it still prints "ubuntu 11.04"10:30
JadedJacobIs there a command to print out "lubuntu 11.04" as the release version10:30
Aklssmile4ever, which one? and how can I recover it?10:30
smile4everAkls: did you try google'ing on the exact error you get?10:31
icerootJadedJacob: imo that was discussed on the mailinglist and fixed for 12.0410:31
Aklssmile4ever, but I don't get any exact error :\10:32
smile4everAnyway, I would install Lubuntu 11.10 :)10:32
Aklssmile4ever, network manager stopped to remember wireless keys, kupfer says something about dbus timeout, firefox says same as kupfer10:32
Aklssmile4ever, "Failed to contact configuration server; the most common cause is missing or misconfiguer D-Bus session bus daemon"10:33
smile4everAkls: you tried reinstalling dbus? :p10:33
icerootJadedJacob: hm not fixed for 12.04 but there was something about that on the mailinglist10:33
Aklssmile4ever, how? ^^"10:33
smile4everAkls: http://www.ehow.com/how_7553501_reinstall-dbus.html10:33
Aklssmile4ever, I saw this one. but I can't open synaptic10:34
Aklssmile4ever, it says "wrong password", but I'm sure 101% that the password is correct.10:34
smile4everAkls: try sudo apt-get remove dbus* && sudo apt-get install dbus* in a terminal :)10:35
AklsI'm not sure if it's a good idea :\10:35
icerootAkls: its not a good idea10:35
icerootand reinstall on debian based systems is not the solution which is maybe working on windows systems10:36
icerootAkls: is dbus running?10:36
Aklsiceroot, seems like yes to me, but any way to check it?10:36
icerootps aux | grep dbus10:37
Aklsiceroot, well, it gave some output10:43
Aklsiceroot, so seems like yes10:43
Aklshmm.. maybe there's something wrong with my hdd...10:44
JadedJacobis anyone running lubuntu on realy new hardware?10:45
JadedJacobcore i3/i5/i7 etc10:45
Aklsyep, seems like my hdd problem :\\\\10:56

Gege71i have an error with apt-get / synaptic13:17
Gege71libc6:amd64 2.13-20ubuntu5.1 cannot be configured because libc6:i386 is in a different version (2.13-20ubuntu5)13:17
Gege71anyone can help please ?13:17
Gege71google did'nt help13:17
phillwGege71: which version of lubuntu are you running?13:19
phillwfrom a quick look at the ppa page at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/oneiric/amd64/libc6-dev-i386/2.13-20ubuntu5.1 it seems to be complaining about the architecture of your computer / kernel fighting between 32 bit and 64 bit. My suggestion is to have a read of that page and ensure you have the "requires" and do not have the "conflicts" installed.13:24
Gege71let's see  , thanks :)13:28
phillwGege71: I've called in reinforcements, Jacky is much more up to speed on this sort of stuff!13:29
jalcineGege71: what's your architecture? i386 (32-bt) or amd64?13:29
Gege71i tried to remove all package depending of libc6-i386 ... but apt-get doasn't want13:30
jalcineWhat's the name of the application you're trying to install?13:30
Gege71i only try sudo update-upgrade13:30
jalcineYeah, that's kind of dangerous. libc6 is like a bloodcell in the library system.13:30
Gege71at the begininng, update-manager failed13:30
Gege71ok but why i386 version, i didn't want it !13:31
Gege71i only need amd64 package13:31
jalcineDid you install a i386 system or  64-bit system?13:31
Gege7164 bits of course13:32
phillware you sure you have 64 bit installed?13:32
Gege71uname -a13:33
Gege71Linux ZEUS 3.0.0-16-generic #28-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 27 17:44:39 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux13:33
phillwyup, thats 64 bit :)13:33
jalcineThere might be a package installed that only has a i386 version available.13:34
jalcineBut as to why dpkg would let it install wscapes me.13:34
Gege71"multi-arch" is the answer : https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MultiarchSpec13:35
jalcineTry "sudo apt-get upgrade -f"13:35
Gege71ok, doesn't work neither ...13:36
phillwGege71: he has a flakey internet connection.13:36
phillwjalcine: have a read of https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/oneiric/amd64/libc6-dev-i386/2.13-20ubuntu5.1 it may as well be written in Chinese for me, but may give some hints?13:37
* jalcine can't view that page.. the sll block :/13:38
phillwjalcine: http://pastebin.com/xZPLifbP13:39
phillwnot pretty, but it works :)13:40
jalcineHmmm. Interesting library.13:41
jalcineProvides support for i386 apps on amd64.13:42
phillwjalcine: I thought it would interest you :)13:42
Gege71in fact... wine1.3 needs libc6-i38613:43
jalcineThat'd be great if I had a amd64 system, could build apps for other system w/o a problem.13:43
Gege71i would never install it :(13:43
JadedJacobhow do i force ubuntu to show the grub boot loader during boot time?13:43
JadedJacobwhat is the key i use?13:43
phillwjalcine: Gege71 as this is not strictly lubuntu related could you guys switch channels?  #sii is quiet at the moment13:43
