wxlgenoobie: in and out, yep01:35
genoobiejust a quick question01:36
genoobieI have a hdd with three partitions an old install of xubuntu which I am going to replace with lubuntu01:36
genoobieI downloaded the alternate install01:36
genoobieI am at the setup of the partition and I don't know what to make the "bootable flag"01:36
wxlwell i wouldn't mess with it unless you plan on booting from that partition01:37
genoobieI am using a boot loader01:39
genoobieI think grub01:39
wxland one of the partitions is going to be the bootable one01:39
genoobieoh, hrm01:40

HyperiantMy power button doesn't do anything when pressed; any ideas?10:11
HyperiantAnybody know how to fix a power button not doing anything in latest lubuntu?10:24
HyperiantOn further investigation, the problem seems to be the "Ask" function in lubuntu10:39
HyperiantHow do I make the "Ask" option on power press actually ask me what to do?10:40

negaduckhi! how to disable desktop?16:32
inductiveloadnegaduck: disable the desktop? how do you mean?16:34
negaducki mean there is a panel with taskbar etc, and there is a desktop under applications that contains folder and docs icons. How to disable it so it wouldn't hang in memory?16:36
inductiveloadi still don't quite follow you, do you mean you don't want PCManFM to mamage the desktop?16:37
negaduckinductiveload: probably yes16:39
negaduckhow to disable it16:39
inductiveloadwhen you say "hang in memeory", do you mean something is literally hanging, or you just don't want to use the ram?16:41
negaducki'd like to free some ram, i've got only 512Mb here16:42
inductiveloadpcman --desktop-off16:43
inductiveloadpcmanfm --desktop-off16:43
negaduckgreat. But how to configure it to be disabled forever?16:47
negaducki relogged in and it started up again16:47
inductiveloadif you want to do it globally, try editing /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart and removing either 1) the "--desktop" from the pcmanfm line or 2) the whole line16:52
negaduckinductiveload: many thanks16:55
inductiveloadno problem16:56
inductiveloadyou could also get rid of xscreensaver if you are that tight on ram16:56
inductiveloadyou'd lose locking, though16:57
negaduckright. xautolock will work for me16:59
ioriai run lubuntu 12.04 (but installed gnome also) and  i cannot open file url in gnome- terminal (URL=file:///), but i can in gnome session. help please18:06
diamondswhere are the requirements listed18:33
diamondsI don't see them here.. am I looking wrong?18:33
billytwowillyif I have a multimonitor  setup is it possible to keep 1 monitor the same on all desktops? i.e I play movies in my second monitor and want the movies to always be on no matter which desktop I'm on but I have a lot of stuff to do in the other monitor that would be easier if I could use multiple desktops.20:26
inductiveloadbillytwowilly: so you mean switch only half your desktop?20:29
inductiveloadi don't _think_ you can do that easily (though I could be wrong). Another direction to go in, if you want to dedicate an output to movies is to have separate X displays, though I'm not sure how you go about that20:31
inductiveloadalternatively, two computers and synergy ;-)20:32
inductiveloadsorry, i know that's not really helpful20:33
billytwowillysomewhat helpful. I figured it wasn't possible. I already have another computer running synergy. but that's the windows work computer..20:35
billytwowillyThat's got its own 4 monitors20:35

AuslinOhh long time since I met this chanel :)22:44
iggy_Hello all :)22:46
iggy_Ihave a problem installing RatPoison  on Lubuntu. The installation works good, but RatPoison isn't listed in the logging screen. I've searched for a file to edit in /etc/X11 but didn"t found anything relevant22:47
Auslinlet me do a quick research22:49
wxli'm pretty sure you have to create a new session file for it22:49
Ausliniggy_: Here you go http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=133322422:50
wxlmay not work given that it's ubunt…22:51
iggy_wow great, it seems good, thank you22:52
AuslinSorry my fault22:52
Auslinif you want to try if is installed correctly you can use ctrl+alt+F1  then sudo xinit -e ratpoison22:52
iggy_i feel stupid i didn't found it :)22:52
iggy_let me trythat live22:52
wxlactually probably will work. i think both lubuntu and ubuntu use lightdm now. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LightDM22:53
iggy_"server already active" for solution with Ctrl+alt+f122:53
Auslinyou can use other F's22:54
AuslinYou know why I love LXDE  it is XDG-compliant, that let me not get that crazy while using other OS like BSD :)22:54
AuslinWell, have to go see you people !22:57
IggY-DesktopHey, i'm the guy that ws having pb with ratpoison22:58
IggY-Desktopthe /usr/share/ new xsession file worked22:58
^Phantom2^I am unable to update my system due to a 404 error.22:58
IggY-Desktopthank's a lot22:58
IggY-Desktophave a good night22:58
^Phantom2^It tells me to check my connection when trying to reach Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/u/upstart/upstart_1.5-0ubuntu7_i386.deb 404  Not Found [IP: 80]22:58
wxl^Phantom2^: 404 on what url?22:58
wxlyep that's a 404 alright22:59
Unit193^Phantom2^: You do a sudo apt-get update  first?23:00
^Phantom2^i can try that23:00
^Phantom2^I usually just run update manager when it comes up23:00
wxllooking at the upper level directory, you find upstart_1.5-0ubuntu7.2_i386.deb and upstart_1.5-0ubuntu9_i386.deb but not upstart_1.5-0ubuntu7_i386.deb23:00
wxlwhich suggests to me an update is in order23:00
wxlthe index is looking for something that's not there23:01
Unit193Yep, that's why I said what I said, sources lists were outdated.23:01
^Phantom2^sudo apt-get update finished23:01
wxlnow sudo apt-get upgrade23:02
Unit193Now  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade  should install the new one.23:02
^Phantom2^I tried installing the latest to this laptop already, and it seems the kernel doesn't support this hardware anymore23:02
wxlmore or less the same thing23:02
wxlthat seems…  surprising.23:03
^Phantom2^older laptop23:03
^Phantom2^pavilion ze530023:03
wxlwhat is the processor?23:03
^Phantom2^Pentium 423:04
Flazereven so, I think it should be supported...23:04
Flazerdon't take my word for it, i'll wait for one of the others to chime in23:05
wxlyeah i concur23:05
^Phantom2^yeah, i'll hold back for now23:05
wxlit should be no problem23:05
wxli'd move forward with the upgrade23:05
wxlwe've installed lubuntu on p2s and celerons23:05
^Phantom2^i had to get the previous version CD for it to work23:05
Flazera p4 should be more supported than those others23:06
Unit193^Phantom2^: Real quick,  grep pae /proc/cpuinfo23:06
^Phantom2^i get a flags output23:07
^Phantom2^with pae in pink23:07
^Phantom2^flags: fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe up pebs bts cid xtpr23:07
Unit193Then the PAE kernel should work.  Also, dist-upgrade will not upgrade to the new version of Lubuntu.23:08
^Phantom2^hm okay23:08
^Phantom2^Unit193, maybe the LiveCD didn't have the kernel I needed?23:09
^Phantom2^this thing used to run windows XP (horribly) which is why I made the switch, and couldn't be happier for doing so23:09
Unit193"dist-upgrade in addition to performing the function of upgrade, also intelligently handles changing dependencies with new versions of packages; apt-get has a "smart" conflict resolution system, and it will attempt to upgrade the most important packages at the expense of less important ones if necessary. The dist-upgrade command may therefore remove some packages. The /etc/apt/sources.list file contains a list of locations from which to ...23:12
Unit193... retrieve desired package files. See also apt_preferences(5) for a mechanism for overriding the general settings for individual packages."23:12
^Phantom2^is that similar to a distro upgrade?23:14
^Phantom2^i've done distro upgrades before and am comfortable doing so, but nervous because the latest version of this distro didn't install due to kernel issues23:15
