tweak-daddyhi. when i downloaded, two times, the lubuntu 64-bit ISO  fca2034b89e8a0acd6536d41ccec061c *lubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64.iso05:12
tweak-daddythat is what is reported on the website as the MD5sum, but that does not match what downloads from the link on lubuntu site.05:13
tweak-daddyand what downloads is not recognized as a valid file when I try burning it to a DVD.05:14
tweak-daddysomething is wrong with the download linked file, I suspect.05:14
Unit193http://thesii.org/iso/lubuntu/precise/lubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64.iso  Try that, but the other should be just fine.05:23
Unit193fca2034b89e8a0acd6536d41ccec061c  lubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64.iso  after downloading from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/releases/12.04/release/lubuntu-12.04-desktop-amd64.iso05:25
tweak-daddythat one worked, but the one I got here, two different times, does not: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/GetLubuntu05:39
tweak-daddythank you, Unit193. your link also shows the same MD5SUM reported on the website where I downloaded. Something with that link is not right.05:40
Unit193Sure thing, but what exact link did you use first?05:40
Unit193Hmmm... I got fca2034b89e8a0acd6536d41ccec061c off that one.05:44
tweak-daddyin that case something bizarre happened to my download, twice.  That is strange.05:48
Unit193If that happens, I recommend zsync.05:48
ubottuUse zsync to update your Ubuntu CD image without needing to download the parts that didn't change. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ZsyncCdImage05:49
tweak-daddythanks, ubottu, that does indeed look like a good program.06:04
kanliotI'd like to answer this question on the forum.  I know a little bit, but can someone give me the proper answer?  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2062905  how do you autostart a program in Lubuntu?06:24
jmarsdenkanliot: to autostart at logon, see the Lubutu FAQ: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Documentation/FAQ/Guides#How_I_can_autostart_a_program_when_logging_into_Desktop06:32
jmarsdenIf he truly needs "at boot", then you can hack /etc/rc.local or add an iniscript for the program of interest to turn it into a service, so that service is started at boot.06:33
kanliotthx jmarsden  but is this method less good?  it's whats confusing me: http://askubuntu.com/a/151946/2150306:36
tweak-daddySeems a bit odd to me that the Lubuntu installer suggests that "You may wish to update this installer," when in fact it is the latest version which I just downloaded. I mean, are there a lot of changes in downloaders that don't get updated too quickly with the online links?06:52
kanliotyou'll be updating your system anyway06:57
coder2Hello. I have installed the OS on an AMD Fusion mobo. AMD propietaty driver was installed. There are two problems leftt: 60Hz  refresh rate on analog monitor and no sound  from analog output - I suspect that it use wrong default output. Please help.06:58
kanliot monitor settings for first problem07:00
kanliotis this a laptop?07:01
kanlioti hate to send you to the audio troubleshooting07:01
coder2kanlot: Sorry, are you talked me? Concerning the problems: I have read the guides and have done a lot receipts, but no luck yet. For example: after installing pavucontrol applet it simple crashes. Old receipts for xorg.conf do not work anymore.07:04
kanliotdo aplay -l from terminal, which card do you want to use07:05
coder2It is a desktop based on E-350 single board.07:05
coder2kanliot: I tried aplay: it shows HDMI, analog and digital outputs. I suspect that it prefers digital out instead of analog.07:06
kanliotyou can use aplay to play directly to whichever sound card you like07:07
coder2Even more, I suspect wrong pulse configuration, but pavucontrol crashes. Next thing to do for me is trying pacmd07:08
kanliotis pulseaudio running?07:08
kanliotpgrep -l pulseaudio07:08
coder2kanliot: unfortunately I haven't found any sound file on the fresh installed system07:09
coder2kanliot: yes, pulse is running07:09
kanliotif you look at the example, the same file should exist on your system07:09
kanliotcan you run pavucontrol07:10
kanliotforget about aplay07:10
kanliotand download an audio file to test with07:10
jmarsdenkanliot: re autostarting a program: the askubuntu way you found seems to me to be the same as the Lubuntu FAQ way (use ~/.config/autostart).  It is not truly "at boot", but "at logon".  If that is acceptable for what the user on the forums needs, then go for it.07:11
coder2kanliot: As I've already mentioned, pavucontrol crashes immediately.07:11
kanliotthx jmarsden07:12
jmarsdenkanliot: You're welcome.  Sorry for the delay I am testing Ubuntu Server PPC Beta2 ISO and disconnected LAN from this machine to connect to PPC machine being tested... :)07:13
kanliotheheh you're too kind :)07:13
coder2Ok, thanks. I'm going to try your advices tomorrow.07:13

Steven_Hello is anyone there?11:06
zleapsorry i am 1/2 here11:07
Steven_I need some advice11:07
Steven_I love Lubuntu but openbox does not offer the ability like compiz grid11:08
Steven_I see there is pytyle but I think it only works with the keyboard11:09
Steven_Is there anyway I can get compiz grid without compiz?11:09
Steven_I'm been at this for a few hours but no good options11:10
Steven_Any ideas?11:10
Steven_Compiz is major over kill just for the grid feature11:12
Steven_So are all the people in the panel to the right logged in to this chat?11:14
Steven_WildTux can you hear me?11:15
kanlioti'm in the matrix11:16
Steven_I'm kind of confused about the nature of this chat11:17

kanlioti been here for weeks most of them havent said a word11:18
Steven_Wtf lol11:18
Steven_So what you guys just log on to this chat and leave it running for weeks?11:19
zleapi am on several channels so end up chatting in one place,  but yeah i have said something on occasion and got no response11:24
zleapi have no idea on the compiz stuff11:25
zleapesp as lubuntu seems to bind the windows super key to the lxde menu11:25
Steven_The other window managers like awesome are nothing like Windows or Os x... I just want to drag my window to one side of the screen and have it pop to fill that half the screen11:27
Steven_You know like Windows 7 snap feature11:27
zleapwindow maker has a icon bar or something i think11:28
Steven_Tried it but could not figure out how to get it to snap...11:28
zleapok not sure off hand,  maybe it doesn't as such11:37
zleapthere is something called docky which is more like er os x11:37
* zleap tends to avoid windows11:37
leszekI am a little bit confused. Are you now talking about the aero snap like feature or about dock apps ?11:41
kanliotaero snap and he left11:49
zleapi think he wanted a similar feature in what ever distro / wm hes using11:50

Ahmucklast evening i was attemtping to set my default keyboard with help from this channel and this morning i am unable to log in13:33
Ahmuckin terminal mode i can, but at the gui login prompt i cannot13:33
Ahmucki assume this has something to do with the lxkeymap for the gui session, but i do not know how to reset it13:34
Ahmuckto default.  any help will be appreciated as I have a class in 1.5 hrs13:34
Ahmuckhow do i reset my lxkeyboard map?14:06
leszekrm ~/.config/lxkeymap.conf14:10
leszekAhmuck: but what exactly is not working ? Wront keyboard layout set somewhere or so that you cannot login or does it crash or what happens exactly ?14:10
Ahmuckwon't allow me to login via gui14:11
Ahmuckin terminal mode i can14:11
Ahmuckpassword works fine, but it's backwards sometimes in gui mode14:11
Ahmuckhow do i see a history of my commands entered into the term.  i need to see what files i may have changed14:16
Ahmuckrm: cannot remove '/home/drbeams/config/lxkeymap.conf': no such file or directory14:18
Ahmuckonce it was typing the password at the password prompt from right to left14:20
Ahmuckso the password is correct, but the entry is incorrect.14:21
leszekAhmuck: lxkeymap is not able to change the global keyboard layout14:21
leszekso it can't affect the login screen14:21
Ahmucklast evening we were working with several files and i have forgotten what those were.  i do recall thinking to myself, ug, i hope when i reboot this works14:21
Ahmuckmy problem i began with last evening was setting lxkeymap through the menu and upon reboot it i would have to reset it every time14:22
Ahmucksooo ... how would i locate my terminal history14:22
leszektype in history14:23
leszekit shows you the terminal history14:24
leszekfor global keyboard layout changes in X you either edited xorg.conf in /etc/X11 or /etc/default/keyboard14:24
Ahmuckin home directory rm .* would correct this?14:27
leszekplease no14:28
leszekit would destroy everything14:28
Ahmuckk, so why would it work using an xterm session (F5) but not on the login prompt?14:31
leszekAhmuck: I really don't know what you did yesterday14:32
leszekperhaps the login prompt is setting a special keyboard layout for you14:32
Ahmuckyes, that is what i was thinking.  but i'm wondering why, and how14:33
Ahmuckand where i would go to reset it14:33
leszekAhmuck: it must be something in /etc/lxdm I guess14:34
Ahmuckk, so resorting to emergencyh proceedures, there is a file i need for a test on this computer ... i need to move it to usb, however usb does not exist in /media or in /mnt (as is should) ... how do i access the usb (as i used to in the good ol days14:37
