donnieAnyone on, anyone up04:24
holsteindonnie: mabye.. just ask if you have as support quesion, or check out the OT channel for chat04:26
donnieI'm going to be asking about bleachbit04:26
holsteindonnie: i see you are getting help in #ubuntu..04:27
donnieI go to many channels since it's rare for me to get 'help' in this channel04:27
holsteindonnie: this is not a bleachbit support channel..04:27
donnieI'm aware of this however if someone uses it. I'd like to know a couple things. since lately my xubuntu has been so slow. I'm considering shooting my hard drive04:28
holsteindonnie: ask what you'd like to know.. i would do that in #ubuntu since its not a xubuntu specific question04:28
donniequestions like should I 'check' and remove .ds_store? is that a safe option?04:29
holsteindonnie: i usually find "safe" can be a matter of opinion... do you need to remove it? can you back it up and test removing it?04:29
holsteindonnie: are you worried about space?04:30
holsteinid say, if you are not worried about space, leave things as they are04:30
donnieNo. just wanna know why all of a sudden my computer is being so slow and lagging on everything I try and do04:32
holsteindonnie: i would test the hardware as well... bad ram or a bad hard drive can seem slow04:33
holsteinalso, nmon helped me a lot04:33

ubottunmon (source: nmon): performance monitoring tool for Linux. In component universe, is optional. Version 13g+debian-1 (quantal), package size 47 kB, installed size 160 kB04:33
donnieHow would I test my ram?04:33
holsteindonnie: i use the memtest at bootup.. in grub, or from a live CD04:33
donnieWill do.. I'm gonna bleach bit my system, then restart and see whats up :)04:34
donnieThank you04:34
mujeebI installed Xubuntu last night along side Windows 7. I didn't choose side by side install but partitioned and installed the drive myself. Windows 7 now appears on the grub boot menu but when I try to boot into it, it goes into a black screen and then comes back to the grub menu.04:41
mujeebAny ideas what can/should I do04:41
xubuntu049I am getting a fatal error installing GRUB bootloader to the same partition as my windows 7 bootloader (i previously had debian setup this way). After the fatal error, I attempt to select a different partition (this time the whole hard drive itself instead of an individual partition) and it says "Installation is complete. You need to start blah blah blah." I reset though, and then it takes me into GRUB rescue mode and tells me th05:22

JeenuI recently installed Xubuntu 12.04 on my Asus X55C-SX078D laptop. One of the remaining hiccups is that the desktop doesn't recognize some of the Fn keyboard functions. For example, adjusting brightness, disabling trackpad etc.07:49
JeenuSome does work. For example, I can mute and adjust volume. I can't adjust brightness07:50
JeenuI can turn off wireless, but can't turn it back on without rebooting07:50
JeenuAny tips please?07:50
moetunesI had to add to my kernel line to get that working07:50
JeenuUm... and the line is...07:52
knomeJeenu, have you tried searching the web for your laptop model and linux/ubuntu?07:55
moetunesI'm not on my laptop atm - yours might work differently07:55
knomeJeenu, things like that many times need additional packages to work properly07:55
knomeJeenu, or additional config, like moetunes pointed07:55
JeenuI had to do some tweaks to get my trackpad recognize right-click and such07:56
knomeat least the hardware is certified... http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/hardware/201206-11379/07:57
JeenuThat's a relief07:57
JeenuMy priority is to disable my trackpad at will. It's large enough that my fingers accidentally touch them and disturbs07:59

GermainZMy system hung during boot due to a kernel panic. I looked at /var/log/kern.log and I can't find it. It's as if that part of the log got skipped.16:24
GermainZShould I be looking elsewhere?16:24
TheMasterKernel panics don't get written, you wouldn't want them to either as the kernel is no longer working right, so could corrupt things rather than writing a log.  You can load panic kernel with kexec, though.16:25
bekksGermainZ: Kernel panics cant be logged since the kernel paniced away.16:25
GermainZSo I have no way of knowing why it happened?16:26
TheSheepit usuall tries to print everything it can on the screen16:28
TheSheepif it still can16:28
GermainZIt did, but I didn't take note of it.16:28
GermainZThe last few lines mentioned that the kernel couldn't sync if I'm not mistaken but I highly doubt that's useful on its own. :)16:29
TheSheepso probably something related to the disk or filesystem16:29
GermainZAll the rest of the lines were related to the GPU IIRC, so I'm really not sure.16:30
GermainZI'll remember to take a picture if it happens another time, thanks.16:30

xubuntu579hi , I am so thrilled with my xubuntu 12.04 installation. I got online and saw a site called, "Xubuntu, the Classic Beauty", and did all that they said to do to make Xubuntu all nice and "shiny". It runs wonderful. BUT, I have a broken pc screen, so I am hooked up to a monitor. I went in to "display" to see if I could turn off my broken pc screen, because it just blares at me with broken light. Well, when I went into "display", I 19:03
xubuntu579I went into xchat in guest mode. No one seemed to know what to do about that, so I just downloaded a clean Xubuntu 12.04. Could I have gone into safemode and fixed it? and how DO you set "display" to make only the monitor work without totally dissing your sign in.19:05
TheSheepyou got cut off after `I went into "display"`19:06
xubuntu579I went into "display" and tried to set the  mode so I could use only my monitor. It turned it OFF!  I was fine in guest mode and seemed to fix it right there. I downloaded a clean 12.04 installation and started over but am afraid to try 'display" to turn off my computer screen.19:09
TheSheepany changes to display will show you a window asking whether everything is allright, and if you don't click it, they will revert in several seconds19:10
TheSheepat least that's how it is supposed to work19:11
xubuntu579well, should I try it in "guest mode" just in case it screws up?19:11
TheSheepor create another user19:12
xubuntu579oh, how do I do that?19:12
ubottuTo add new users to your Ubuntu system, follow the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddUsersHowto - For administrative privileges, users need to be made members of the group "admin" - See !sudo19:12
xubuntu579i'm new to linex    I actually fixed a failed Windows Vista with Xubuntu 12.04. I am writing on it right now.19:13
TheSheepdon't worry, xubuntu is fairly easy19:13
xubuntu579where is sudo19:13
ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo19:13
TheSheepxubuntu579: you can also /msg ubottu for those help snippets19:14
xubuntu579do you mean the terminal19:14
TheSheepxubuntu579: personally, I like to use xrandr for all the screen-related settings19:15
xubuntu579what do you mean?19:15
xubuntu579I'm a new user    was a windows user before19:15
TheSheepxubuntu579: if you click that link in the first snippet, you should see a howto on adding users, with screenshots and everything19:15
TheSheephttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddUsersHowto <-- this one19:16
xubuntu579when you say "first snippet", you mean the part where we sign in? O.K. I will go to that link.19:16
TheSheepI mean the text that ubottu gave you when I said !user19:17
TheSheepanyways, I need to go, if you have any more trouble, ask here and someone will sooner or later answer19:18
xubuntu579sorry, don't get it, only because I'm so knew at it all. O.K. Thanks for the sites. I'll look them up.19:18
xubuntu579Does anyone else know how to set "display" to use the monitor? I have a broken pc screen and have a monitor hooked up to it that I use. I wanted to know if there was a way to turn off my pc screen and see only the monitor. Right now, the broken pc screen and the monitor are on.19:23
xubuntu579-set the "display" to use the monitor only.19:24
xubuntu579I need help setting the "display" to make only the monitor work. I have a broken pc screen and want to turn IT off. Yesterday, I accidentally turned off the monitor when I was messing with the "display" and had to download a clean Xubuntu 12.04. Nobody in xchat knew how to fix that.19:29
