knomeit will run... smoothly? i suppose that depends what you're going to do and what you think is smooth00:00
iwrbrowsing, 8+tabs in chrome, maybe word editor open? :)00:01
pleia2my netbook is 1.6ghz + 1G of ram and it's quite usable, except for flash videos (tend to end up being a bit choppy)00:03
David-Aiwr: that may work. the biggest memory eater nowadays are web-browsers, both chromium and firefox. but 8 not too heavy tabs should be fine. high-definition video will probably not be smooth with an old graphics card.00:04
iwrno, its mostly basic work00:05
pleia2libreoffice will load slowly, but it shouldn't be a problem once it's launched00:05
pleia2(I use it on said netbook for Impress presentations)00:05
iwrthank you guys for help00:05
genii-aroundpleia2: I have a similar spec netbook ( Acer D260 ), I highly recommend some cheap SSD for it. After I swapped the drive without changing anything else, everything just zips along.00:22
pleia2oh right, mine does have an ssd and I'm sure that helps00:24
Unit193Hrm, so I'm the only one that has had some issues with 1G ram?  Swapping out was a killer, I optimized firefox and then my kernel also added zswap support which also helped.00:27

genii-aroundUnit193: My machine ran like a dog. Out of kubuntu, regular ubuntu, and xubuntu only xubuntu was marginally usable. Kubuntu would take 5-6 minutes to load to a usable desktop. Swapping the drive for an SSD took that down to under a minute. Although I'm mostly using xubuntu and lubuntu on it now, both which zip along. I may bump RAM up to 2G00:31
pleia2I use chrome (firefox is leaner now, but not good enough)00:33
pleia2I used the default gnome2 in 8.04 when I first got it, but then switched to xubuntu00:34

dr_danoh hi!20:10
dr_danwell its for my 12 year son.  he just wanted a machine for online (web)  games  like miniclips20:10
dr_danflash based i think20:10
TheSheepmost should work fine, but some are written in a horrible way and need quite some computing power20:11
dr_danyeah i thought so20:11
dr_danso should i find a slightly more powerful laptop?20:11
TheSheepI would give it a try20:12
TheSheepif you can20:12
dr_danthe thing is 6 years old i think20:12
dr_danok.   go with 11.10?   or  12.10  verison20:12

hhhzzzainwho has libreoffice on their xubuntu?20:40
hhhzzzaingridcube, do you have libreoffice on your xubuntu?20:41
hhhzzzainwhich version is it?20:41
knomehhhzzzain, please don't ping random people20:42
knomehhhzzzain, even if GridCube replied, it's not good manners20:42
GridCubegood point20:43
hhhzzzainyou just joined so It is a good time to ask.20:44
pleia2hhhzzzain: do you have a specific problem/question in mind? a lot of us install libreoffice on xubuntu but it's hard to know how to help if you don't ask ;)20:44
pleia2and knowing what version of Xubuntu you're running and ask about is helpful too20:44
hhhzzzainmy question: which version of libreoffice is the lastest using the ubuntu software centre + updates?20:44
GridCubeLibreOffice Build ID: 350m1(Build:2)20:44
knomehhhzzzain, possibly true, but it doesn't make pinging random people good manners.20:45
pleia2hhhzzzain: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=libreoffice20:45
hhhzzzainreally, if you are idle, make you status idle, otherwise don't expect people to know that you are busy.20:47
GridCubehhhzzzain, its not like that, but please dont enter to an argument here20:47
pleia2hhhzzzain: that's not really how it works :)20:47
GridCubelets just all move on please20:47
pleia2hhhzzzain: the link I gave gives current versions for recent versions of ubuntu, does that answer your question?20:48
hhhzzzainyes (but it is also listed if you go to ubuntu software centre). I wanted to know that through "check for updates" it will update to 3.6.5 (current version on the website).20:49
hhhzzzainso the current version on ubuntu is 3.6.5?20:51
hhhzzzainor 3.6.2?20:51
hhhzzzainso I should download from libreoffice directly?20:52
hhhzzzainto get 3.6.5?20:52
pleia2hhhzzzain: I'm going to assume you're on 12.04?20:52
pleia2ok, then according to the site I linked the current version available for 12.10 is 3.6.220:53
pleia2not 3.6.520:53
pleia2looks like 3.6.5 hasn't been packaged yet, not even for 13.0420:53
pleia2it may need more testing, or has bugs the developers want to see fixed before packaging it, or many other reasons :)20:54
pleia2if you absolutely need 3.6.5 and don't mind that it hasn't been accepted by ubuntu developers yet, I suppose you could download it from libreoffice's site, but I tend to recommend sticking with the current version with your release for the best experience stability, etc wise20:55
hhhzzzainI would have answered this myself if I knew: the most updated ubuntu packages immediately appears in ubuntu software centre. (I thought there was a delay).20:55
pleia2they first go into a "proposed" repository where developers and contributors can test them20:56
pleia2so that's the delay20:56

dydzEz2__didnt someone here have a thinkpad x1 carbon23:53
dydzEz2__ ah yes it was you koegs23:53
dydzEz2__do you have dual boot with your windows 8 setup23:53
dydzEz2__wondering if you installed xubuntu under UEFI (secure boot off though) and then used boot-repair23:54
koegsnope, i am not using uefi23:54
koegsi have dualboot win8 and xubuntu, but not uefi23:55
dydzEz2__ ah ok23:55
dydzEz2__but you had to use boot-repair right?23:55
dydzEz2__oh wow you didnt? it just fixed up grub, i had to use it. i installed it a first time on legacy and when i would go into grub and hit w8 it wouldnt work23:56
koegshm, i had win7 first, then xubuntu, at some point later i have remove win7 and installed win823:57
dydzEz2__oh so you dont have like lenovo's win 8 recovery thing23:57
koegsafter that i have reinstalled grub with the live-cd23:57
dydzEz2__oh you did that i see23:57
dydzEz2__you used the live-cd to fix up grub23:57
dydzEz2__you just did it manually eh?23:57
koegsyeah, had to, because win8 overwrote grub23:57
koegsbut that is just a matter of minutes23:58
dydzEz2__boot-repair worked under uefi, i think imma setup it under legacy so alll live-cd's will be easier to work around23:58
dydzEz2__is there a forum post on how you did it exactly, if boot-repair doesn work23:58
koegsyeah, did not want to read uefi docs and how-tos, i am good with legacy :D23:58
koegsi can give you the german ubuntuusers wiki :D23:59
dydzEz2__ill just translate on chrome or something23:59
