datakidmorning. I'm having trouble with one program across accounts. I wanted to check the different starting mechanisms - one account has a desktop icon, the other uses the start menu. What do I edit to see the properties of an entry in the start menu?01:41
datakidie, by using vim Desktop/blah.desktop I can see it's EXEC value - how do I find the same value for the start menu item?01:52
holsteindatakid: i would start here... http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Main_Menu01:53

submanWhen running glxgears, my output says synced to vertical refresh...how do I set this to be unsnyced?02:07
holsteinsubman: i would think that wuld be done in a custom xorg.conf02:14
submanAny links to research that?02:15
holsteinhttp://www.x.org/archive/X11R6.8.0/doc/xorg.conf.5.html for example from searching "xorg.conf vertical sync"02:17
holstein"+VSync" and "-VSync" can be used to select the polarity of the VSync signal from using "control + f" and searching "vsync" on that page02:18

sonofzeusHi there03:01
sonofzeusHow shall I change my lubuntu desktop into lubuntu server without reinstalling?03:01
holsteinsonofzeus: there is not "lubuntu server", so you just have it03:02
holsteinsonofzeus: you can run whatever server specific things you want along with LXDE, or remove whatever desktop packages you like03:02
sonofzeusWhat packages does a general server consist of?03:04
sonofzeusPls lemme know.03:04
holsteinsonofzeus: depends03:04
sonofzeusIts a general server03:04
sonofzeusOne that hosts websites.03:04
holsteinsonofzeus: that all depends on what kind of services you want/need03:04
holsteintake a look at those ^ you can run them live, and see what you want/need03:05
holsteinmost folks just want a lamp stack, but you might just want apache.. or something else03:05
sonofzeusOkay thanks03:05

FrankieJhey, i install lubuntu on top of ubuntu 12.04 LTS because compiz/unity was using too much memory, but now i have lubuntu, i was wondering if i can remove compiz/unity without affecting the system?19:26
n-iCephillw: I'm in 13.04 :)19:27
n-iCeFrankieJ: lubuntu does not come with compiz19:27
phillwn-iCe: as am I... a bit fiddly because of my suite of test areas.19:27
FrankieJi know19:28
FrankieJi installed ubuntu 12.04 LTS first19:28
phillwn-iCe: nope, it is a lean install. you can add stuff to it.19:28
FrankieJthen i apt-get lubuntu19:28
n-iCeFrankieJ: Try to log in with Unity 2D (that does not use Compiz)19:30
phillwsorry, I mis-read it for conky. I do not know about compiz :)19:30
FrankieJn-iCe, im sticking with lubuntu right now, i just wanted to know if i removed unity/compiz, would it affect lubuntu in any way19:32
n-iCeno, it should not.19:33
n-iCeRemove just the packages19:33
n-iCeFrankieJ: any way, lubuntu 13.04 was released, a clean install should be better.19:33
n-iCebut, sudo apt-get purge compiz compiz-plugins-main-default libcompizconfig0 , should do the work.19:33
FrankieJi got LAMP all set up on my system, if i do clean install i lose set up no?19:33
n-iCeget the LAMP configuration files and save them19:34
n-iCebut, yes, all will be lost.19:35
phillwFrankieJ: dump your mysql tables and contents to a safe place, then re-install them19:35
n-iCephillw: what about doing a backup to /home, not sure if lamp files mysql are being stored there19:35
phillwFrankieJ: mysql has a command to do both19:35
phillwn-iCe: mysql files are not stored in /home19:36
n-iCeSince Hardy, Ubuntu can be reinstalled while preserving home19:36
n-iCeI see19:36
FrankieJwhat is new in 13 that i should do clean install?19:36
FrankieJi cant jus upgrade?19:36
phillwan upgrade will preserve. a new install will not.19:37
n-iCeyou can, but old ubuntu configurations will still be there19:37
* n-iCe steps back19:37
phillwFrankieJ: yes, and upgrade will not remove them19:37
* n-iCe always do clean installs19:37
FrankieJkk thx everyone19:39
phillwFrankieJ: if you re-install, you basically wipe the hard disk. Using upgrade will retain your data, it is important to have a backup just in case things go wrong.19:39
FrankieJphillw, yea ima back everything up, but is there i should worry about cuz im still new to this and i install ubuntu before i installed lubuntu so i know i retained ubuntu's programs and such...but what is in ubuntu that isnt in lubuntu19:41
n-iCedesktop environment19:41
n-iCeremove unity gnome compiz etc, you will catch lubuntu desktop which is lxde19:41
phillwFrankieJ: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu#Lubuntu_VS_Ubuntu19:42
FrankieJlol phillw, that's funny19:43
FrankieJok lemme backup and clean install19:43
FrankieJthanks a lot19:43
phillwFrankieJ: if you need help saving your mysql area, give me a dig in the ribs (ping).19:44
FrankieJlol kk19:46
FrankieJphillw, i jus remembered i got special keybinds ive created but i forgot where its located and how to back up19:49
phillwFrankieJ: I cannot help on them if they are not in your /home area.19:50
phillwask on the mailing list.19:51
FrankieJphillw, would you know what you would have to download in order to help change monitor settings for dual monitors?19:52
phillwholstein: do you know where they would be?19:52
FrankieJi got super+1 bind to single display and super+2 bind to extend display via hdmi19:52
FrankieJwith set resolution19:53
FrankieJnvm i got it19:53
FrankieJits ARandR19:53
FrankieJheard of that before?19:53
phillwFrankieJ: I used the in built screen system to do a recent presentation using a projector. But, for something more complicated I'd suggest http://lubuntu.net/tags/arandr19:54
FrankieJphillw, i found it thx19:56
FrankieJif anyone curious >> http://www.lubuntutips.com/2012/05/dual-monitors-in-lubuntu.html19:57
phillwFrankieJ: I still used the in built lx tool, but I had that as backup in case I needed it. But, I think ArandR is a good GUI tool to make and edit the x,org file.19:58
FrankieJall i know it works lol20:00
FrankieJhmmm, now i have several files i would like to copy and back up, but to a windows 7 machine, ive copied files FROM win7 onto this machine jus fine, but right now i am unable to copy to IT20:10
AndreeeCZhello. I would like to hide the menu (File, Edit, Go, ..) in pcmanfm. Is this possible?23:40
AndreeeCZi use it scarcely and it eats up vertical space on my display23:40
