SineTheCreatorhi all. i just installed lubuntu 12.10 on a laptop. everything seems to be working very well, but i'm using gigolo and samba to mount network shares and i'm having an odd problem00:31
SineTheCreatorshares mount okay and can be browsed with no problems. but when i try to copy a folder or somesuch the copy dialog will lockup after the first file00:31
SineTheCreatoronly one file actually gets copied00:32
SineTheCreatorit happens if i select multiple files and copy/paste as well00:32
SineTheCreatori'm on wifi but i have a good signal and this card has worked fine in other distros. any ideas? this one is wracking my brain00:32
IveBeenBitI have an old laptop with about 220MB of RAM and a 1.3 GHz Celeron processor. I don't think it's able to boot from a USB. Can someone point me to an .iso file that is <700 MB so I can install lubuntu from a CD?01:22
holstein!minimal | IveBeenBit01:23
ubottuIveBeenBit: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD01:23
holsteinyou can add whatever desktop you think might work.. i would want to try the live CD and see how things are supported01:23
IveBeenBitOK thanks. I never thought of trying it from a live CD. Any opinion on these? The iso is 675 MB https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Alternate_ISO01:25
holsteinIveBeenBit: by live CD, i mean, from usb or cd..01:26
holsteinIveBeenBit: the alternate or the minimal will install... not sure if the desktop will come up.. and im not sure about hardware support01:26
IveBeenBitThank you. I'll give the alternat install a try and if that doesn't work, will use the Minimal.01:30
IveBeenBitOK when trying to install, I get an error that says: This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU: pae. Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU. Would the "minimal" installer be any better? I'm using the 12.10 alternate installer. Or do I have to go back to lubuntu 10.10 or something?01:52
IveBeenBithrm, my message looks like it was truncated. The important stuff made it, though.01:53
holsteinIveBeenBit: i would use a non pae kernel02:59

holstein^^ i would get 12.04.. or even 10.04 for that hardware02:59
holsteini would probably get a puppy linux live CD too03:00
IveBeenBitOK. It's getting late here but I'll take a whack at a minimal install tomorrow. Thanks!03:00
holsteinIveBeenBit: the non pae kernel is the key03:00
holsteinIveBeenBit: AFAIK, the pae is all we have from 12.10 on..03:01
IveBeenBitThere is a note on here about old hardware, but they don't use the word "pae." https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Alternate_ISO03:02
holsteinIveBeenBit: thats why i said i would try 10.04... wouldnt bother me at all to run 10.04 on that hardware.. and it'll work03:05
holsteinIveBeenBit: this is what you are dealing with http://www.webupd8.org/2012/11/how-to-install-ubuntu-1210-on-non-pae.html as well as an older machine with low ram03:06
holsteinwhat would i do? install the last minimal or server ubuntu i could tolerate installing on there03:06
holsteinif i wanted a desktop environment, i would boot puppy03:08
IveBeenBitGood deal, holstein. Thanks again for the help.03:10
holsteinIveBeenBit: cheers03:11
datakidhello, new to lubuntu, installing 12.10 over ubuntu 11.10. During installation when asked for type, does "Erase Ub 11.10 and reinstall" only affect my current root partition or does it reformat the whole drive. I have a separate /home partition that I would like left alone03:56
datakidthey share a physical drive, and are parted with / on /dev/sda2 and  /home on /dev/sda303:57
holsteindatakid: i would to custom partitioning to be sure03:58
datakidchoose the "something else" option then?03:58
holsteindatakid: thats what i would do03:58
holsteinerase 11.10 should do just that03:59
holsteinif thats what you want to do, then you can do that...03:59
datakid"do just that" you mean it will only install lubuntu into /dev/sda2?04:00
holsteini mean, it will erase 11.10.. i have no idea where it is04:00
datakidok, thanks holstein appreciated. Fingers crossed, am something elsing04:04

SonikkuAmericaIs there a particular reason why Lubuntu needs gksudo permissions to reconnect to networks?15:55
SonikkuAmericaWow. Is anyone even here?16:05
SonikkuAmericaHey Aksel16:07
phillwSonikkuAmerica: I don't have this problem with my 12.10 install.16:10
SonikkuAmericaphillw: What?16:11
SonikkuAmericaWhat problem?16:11
SonikkuAmericaDid you install the 13.04 beta 1 and run into a problem?16:12
phillw(16:55:27) SonikkuAmerica: Is there a particular reason why Lubuntu needs gksudo permissions to reconnect to networks? I've not tried disconnecting from the network in 13.04. The Beta 2 is due out today, I'll have a play with it and see if I (or others) can replicate it.16:13
SonikkuAmericaOh, that. Funny how I forgot I asked a question.16:14
phillwdo pay attention, we reserve the right to hold a quiz to ensure people are doing do :P16:15
SonikkuAmericaEspecially here, with almost zero traffic.16:15
phillwI've got the Beta 2 installed on a VM, I'll ask someone using WiFi to see if they have the problem.16:16
SonikkuAmericaI need to change host, so I'll be back in a sec.16:16
SonikkuAmericaI'm back...17:22
phillwhi SonikkuAmerica Ali is just having a different issue and is currently doing some further checks, he'll have a preliminary result in the next hour.17:24
SonikkuAmericaOK... I have all the time in the world.17:25
phillwhe's got to have a bootable system 1st :P17:25
SonikkuAmericaAny update on the "net requires gksudo" issue?19:00
wxlSonikkuAmerica: i seem to remember this probelm19:00
wxlis the wifi conenction for all users?19:01
SonikkuAmericaI am the only user of this machine.19:01
wxlthat's not what i asked19:01
wxl(and technically you're not)19:01
SonikkuAmericaApparently the answer is no if you count root.19:02
wxlso make sure that the connection is available to all users19:02
dorohorois there somone who do programing with Xlib i need help19:04
SonikkuAmericawxl: How's that done?19:04
wxlin the gui19:04
wxlright click on the nm-manager applet19:04
wxlclick on the connection\19:04
SonikkuAmericaYou mean left-click19:04
wxlhit edit again19:04
wxllook a tthe bottom left19:04
wxlright right19:04
SonikkuAmericaI see a checkbox19:04
wxland it's checked?19:05
SonikkuAmericaShould I uncheck it19:05
wxlno, it should be checked19:05
SonikkuAmericadorohoro: Did you check in #xlib ?19:07
dorohoroi think it problem with lubuntu19:07
dorohoroit wont open applicaton in 32 bit depth19:08
SonikkuAmericadorohoro: Are you running 64-bit?19:08
dorohorono 3219:08
SonikkuAmericawxl: OK, so what now?19:08
wxlSonikkuAmerica: dunno. that usually resolves it. what card you using?19:08
SonikkuAmericaHold on, I need to lspci19:10
SonikkuAmerica^ There19:11
SonikkuAmericaLines 19 and 2019:11
wxlNetwork controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61)19:11
wxlassuming you're only using wireless19:11
wxli thought that's whta you said above19:11
SonikkuAmericaSometimes I use the ethernet when the bandwidth is low19:12
SonikkuAmericafor the wireless19:12
wxland the ethernet has the same problem?19:12
SonikkuAmericaOne sec... I need to restart, just ran updater19:12
wxldid you get a new kernel?19:13
SonikkuAmericaOK, I rebooted, purposefully disconnected and reconnected again. Seems to be no problem no. Weird...19:15
wxlupdates usually help19:15
wxlreboots are usually unnecessary unless you got a new kernel19:15
wxlservices get restarted typically19:16
SonikkuAmericaI'm new to Lubuntu, but not to any other release of Ubuntu.19:16
wxlthat's not only true for the canonical family, but across the board on any unix-like system19:17
SonikkuAmericaEven OS X?19:17
wxlif you're using, e.g. homebrew or macports, yep19:17
wxlif you're using Software Updater, it'll make you do whatever the hell it thinks you need, whether or not you truly need it.19:18
wxlbtw, best way to make a mac suck less: homebrew. get it.19:18
SonikkuAmericaI no haz Mac.19:19
SonikkuAmericaAnd if I did: *buntu amd64+mac image19:19
redderhsBest way to fix a mac so it doesn't suck at all: sell it on eBay and buy a real computer.19:33
