silverarrowand no sound17:01
silverarrowor alsamixer17:01
silverarrowhey, where are you guys@17:06
silverarrowI like the quietness of ppc17:07
silverarrowdoes anyone know if there is alsamixer in 12.04?17:10
wxlsilverarrow: yep17:14
silverarrowhow do I launch it17:14
wxlterminal: alsamixer17:14
silverarrowdoesn`t work17:15
wxlit's installed in this package http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/alsa-utils17:15
wxlyou should apt-cache policy alsa-utils and make sure you have the current version17:15
silverarrowthere is alsamixer in lubuntu powerpc ?17:15
wxlshould be no reason why not but i don't have a ppc in front of me to check17:15
grifo74hello lubuntu 12.04 is lts version?17:19
wxlgrifo74: ^17:20
wxl18 month support17:20
silverarrowyes, it is latest version?17:21
grifo74lubuntu don't have lts version???17:22
wxlwell no, latest version is in alpha 12.1017:22
wxlthat's not lts either mind you17:22
wxlafaik the only "real" lts is 10.0417:23
silverarrowwell, latest official then17:23
wxlthe current is 12.0417:23
grifo74i think 18 month is very good17:27
grifo74who is the minima hardware requiriments?17:28
silverarrowso no help with my sound issues and no alsa?17:28
wxlsilverarrow: i don't know. did you check for alsa-utils? which version you have?17:28
wxl(did say that)17:28
wxlgrifo74: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/#System_Requirements17:30
wxlspace needed is prety small-- a few g17:30
wxldepending on the type of install17:30
grifo74very nice i have a hold machine, a new opinion , i have a i new machine 64 bits with 4Gb ram you recomend 64bits version or kernel pae?17:31
wxlwell you can probably get the old one going, whereas nothing else will work17:32
wxlbut the 64b one will probably be more enjoyable to use on a daily basis ;)17:33
grifo74thanks the downloads 32 and 64 begin 10 minutes and try ;)17:34
Unit193I personally would go with PAE, not enough more ram to make it worthwhile, but wxl should know more on that subject.17:34
wxlUnit193: i think grifo74 was referring to the fact that he's got two machines and which one he should bother putting lubuntu on.17:35
wxli guess in the end my answer was "both" ;)17:35
Unit193Hah, somehow I missed that part. :P17:35
silverarrowwhere is alsamixer hidden in lubuntu for powerpc?17:38
Unit193In the terminal, type alsamixer.17:39
silverarrowsorry, I lost connection a few minutes ago17:39
* wxl considers colored/blinking text next17:39
silverarrowall I keep finding is the same command for launching though17:40
wxlfor that matter, what happens when you type alsamixer? i know you say it doesn't load, but what does it return?17:42
silverarrow"no such file or directory", which leads me to think there is no alsa17:46
silverarrowthough I can `t figure out what`s in stead17:47
wxlso does it give you a list of other possible packages? that's usually what ubuntu does if there's a command not found17:47
wxland did you check what version if any of alsa-utils you have?17:47
wxlyou can do that in synaptic17:47
wxlor do:17:47
wxlapt-cache policy alsa-utils17:47
silverarrow1.0.25 lubuntu517:55
Unit193The ppc version isn't that much different, is it?17:56
silverarrowI can`t even mange copy and paste17:58
silverarrowno right click for the mouse, no key commands17:59
wxlwell that can be a ppc problem17:59
wxlbut if you have alsa utils you have alsamixer17:59
wxltry whereis alsamixer or locate alsamixer18:00
silverarrowhow do I do a screenshot with out screen shot key?18:00
wxlscrot -- look at the man page for different ways you can manage it, either by clicking on a window, or setting a delay or whatever your preference is18:01
silverarrowI need a break, I`ve been at this for hours now18:02
nothingspecialI've added #lubuntu and #lubuntu-offtopic to this page https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList18:03
nothingspecialAre there any dev channels that need adding18:04
Unit193Nope, that's all there is, but offtopic is used for devel too.18:04
nothingspecialokay thanks Unit19318:05
silverarrowfigured out the copy and paste thing18:08
silverarrowin snow leopard and newer macs, you can right click?18:09

silverarrowany idea about how to get sound in lubuntu powerpc19:45
silverarrowthere doesn`t seem to be any alsamixer19:45
silverarrowmy ibook install is suddenly not looking so good20:53
silverarrowneither alsamixer, java or flash player works, but they are installed20:53
silverarrowpackages are there20:54
silverarrowis it powerpc issues, or something else20:54
silverarrowwe need more apple guys to venture into linux and ubuntu20:56
silverarrowos x is good, but open source is fun and can be very handy20:58
silverarrowthere are load of old ibooks out there, in good condition, it would be great to make them adaptable for lubuntu21:52
silverarrowmore up to date, and easier to work with when thing are running smootly21:52

silverarrowall packages are there,22:37
silverarrowI have installed both restricted packages in package manager22:38
wxlsilverarrow: java is contentious on ppc. recommend using ibm java https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java22:43
silverarrowoh i see22:44
silverarrowI thought it was basic22:44
silverarrowso installing a few extra packages, or removing old?22:45
wxlibm java is not easy to come by22:45
wxlread the instructions and have fun22:45
wxllong story short: the world could care less about powerpc, get used to it :(22:46
silverarrowyeah, I know, there are no money in discontinued hard ware22:48
wxlyeah there's plenty of things that support powerpc, but usually not from the big money makers like java and flash22:49
silverarrowthough a lot of well built ibooks in need of something better than lion22:51
silverarrowlubuntu is much more flexible than lion22:51
silverarrowthough a bit hard to find support for the apple hardware22:52
silverarrowI made a new savefile in 528 the other day, but could not make the update work?22:54
silverarrowhowever, I am sticking with lubuntu for the ibook install23:03
silverarrowI need a full HD install, and preferably not lion or leopard23:04
silverarrowmy main focus is sound and alsamixer problem23:10
silverarrowalsamixer will not open in terminal23:10

wxlwhat is the exact path? /usr/bin/alsamixer ??23:14
silverarrowyes, but still it will not launch23:14
wxldid you try writing exactly /usr/bin/alsamixer23:14
wxlif that's there23:15
silverarrowdoesn`t launch then either23:15
