nonubychanging Style in Appearence has no affect, my bar has a light background rather than usual black. struggling to remember how I fcuked this up04:26
kingnick42This your panel?04:27
xubuntu103Is there anybody who is able to answer a question concerning a .conf file?06:24
Gooman24anyone around that could help with an install issue?08:29
baizonGooman24: and the issue is?08:32
mike5Hi, all08:32
mike5I'm looking into installin xubuntu on a computer which has a CD-rom not DVD. So I'm looking at alternatives to the default ISO08:33
mike5Network installation or something similar.08:33
Gooman24I get the live CD booted and click on try and then I get a desktop...08:33
Gooman24the wifi is not working so I got to the restricted drivers section...08:34
Gooman24and enable the wifi and then I get what looks like a stack dump?08:34
Gooman24nothing I can really understand and I am not really a linux noob08:34
Gooman24So I tried again.... this time I plugged in a network cable and just went right to the install... same thing08:35
Gooman24not exaclty the same stuff though08:35
Gooman24honestly I have no idea where to even start looking on this one08:35
baizonmike5: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD08:35
baizonthen you can just install xubuntu afterwards08:36
baizonGooman24: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProcedures08:37
baizonGooman24: check syslog for errors, this will help a lot resolving the issue08:37
Gooman24there might be something I am missing here but how do I check the syslog if both the live enviroment and the install are crashing?08:38
baizonGooman24: you mean at boot?08:38
baizonyou just wrote that you can log in into the livecd environment08:39
Gooman24I am trying to do an install on a machine... when I start the install it crashes... when I am booted to the live cd and try to turn on the wifi it crashes08:39
Gooman24the HHD is blank08:39
baizonGooman24: yes08:39
baizonopen a terminal and write dmesg08:40
baizonand check what output it gives08:40
mike5Baizon: So the ide is to install some light-weight ubuntu variant first, then change the location of the repositories and then what?08:40
Gooman24I am still missing something here.  I am not sure how to open a terminal on a crashed machine08:40
Gooman24that has no installed OS08:40
mike5is there a bit better description of the whole procedure?08:40
baizonmike5: the link i posted gives you a minimal ubuntu installation without any DE08:41
baizononly terminal08:41
baizonthen you can set up your internet connection and just install the xubuntu desktop for example08:41
baizonGooman24: the whole system crashes?08:41
baizonGooman24: well then i would recommend to check your memory08:42
baizonon start there is a option for testing memory08:42
Gooman24I was looking for that but on the 13.xx DVD I downloaded it doesn't seem to be there08:42
Gooman24also the live envirment works fine till I try to do anything network related08:42
mike5install how? I'm not too familiar with over-the netwrok install. usually there is a CD image you can doenload which has everything set up.08:42
mike5I'll seartch the Internet,08:43
lderandoes anything else cause it to crash or just when you enable networking Gooman24?08:43
Gooman24just when I enable netowrking08:43
baizonsorry i'm afk for 15 min08:43
baizonhave to go08:43
lderandoes it give any information out when it crashes?08:44
Gooman24well basically its all letters and numbers... looks like a kernel panic sorta08:44
Gooman24only with no discernable errors of any kind08:44
Gooman24full black screen08:44
lderanshall look into it for you08:45
Gooman24if there was even a small straw to grasp I would be on google but I have no idea where to even start08:46
Gooman24I have spent days in years past toughing out problems but I had some straw to grasp at08:47
lderanit looks like it could be the bug 107251808:47
ubottubug 1072518 in gnome-settings-daemon (Ubuntu) "Restarting network crashes (apparently) the desktop manager" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/107251808:47
lderanor something similiar08:47
lderanhave you tried this guide http://bigbrovar.aoizora.org/index.php/2011/04/30/turning-wireless-on-causes-laptop-to-freeze-on-ubuntu-11-04-natty-narwhal-my-work-around/ ?08:48
Gooman24hmm looks interesting... I know it is a broadcom issue08:49
Gooman24it occurs when ever it tries to load the proprietary drivers08:50
mike5I see 12.10 installation ISO is under 700MB. I guess upgrae from 12.10 to 13.04 is pretty straight forward?=08:50
lderanmike5 yup the upgrade is simple, you can try out the live image before if you want to check it out first :)08:51
Gooman24mike if you use the ubuntu minimal install that was mentioned earlier then you get a basic install with command line08:51
Gooman24then you basically plug in an ethernet cable that has DHCP08:51
mike5I have checked it out, thank. Now I want to install it on my mothers PC :)08:51
Gooman24and the line to get you to xubuntu is something like sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop08:51
mike5and see what she thinks :)08:52
mike5Gooman: That regarding my previous question about how to install xubuntu from minimal-install image?08:52
mike5and that is available from the configured ubuntu repositories?08:54
Gooman24you should be able to just plug in an ethernet cable to your avarage home router and the ping google.com or something to see if you are online08:54
Gooman24then once you are if I recall correctly the xubuntu desktop can be installed with that command or the like08:54
Gooman24I just googled it... the command I provided was correct08:57
baizonmike5: xubuntu or lubuntu09:19
baizonthat will do it :)09:19
baizonlubuntu is more windows-like09:19
mike5baizon: thanks. I'll check lubuntu as well.09:42
mike5xubuntu looked a bit more cute from the screenshots.09:43
baizonmike5: it is imho :)10:03
mike5But their installation ISO is under 700MB, which is quite important for me at the moment.10:09
mike5So, maybe something for the packager to consider for the next release....10:10
knomemike5, i understand, but otoh, feel free to try to it everything on a cd yourself10:22
delevebgardner, thank you 4 resolving my problem the other time i visit here!12:01

xubuntu202hello everyone! I have a little problem installing xubuntu 13.04 via dvd on my old desktop (win2000): in the cabinet I have only a cd reader and if I select the boot from cd it doesn't recognise the dvd. now I have an external usb dvd Reader/writer too. so I tried to boot from the usb (both ZIP and FDD) but still i doesn't get the xubuntu dvd. do you have any suggetions?12:17
A_JThank you very much koegs both worked :)12:18
cc_INCDid you re-arranged the boot order at BIOS xubuntu202?12:18
xubuntu202yes, many times12:18
cc_INCHmm...does you cd-drive work in the current OS you have installed on the box?12:19
cc_INCHave you tried booting with acpi = off12:22
cc_INCPerhaps your systems ACPI is not supported....just thinking out loud..12:23
xubuntu202I don't know, I must try again! thanks cc_INC12:23
elfyxubuntu202: if it sees the cd but no the dvd you could try with 12.04 rather than 13.04 - as that fits on a cd12:24
xubuntu202@cc_INC where may I find this ACPI feature?12:26
elfyxubuntu202: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Changing_the_CD.27s_Default_Boot_Options12:27
elfyyou want F612:28
cc_INCF6 at boot12:28
elfybut if it's not seeing the dvd reader and you've only got the cd to use - try 12.0412:28
cc_INCBut try getting 12.04 on a CD12:28
cc_INCWhat elfy said12:28
cc_INCWindows 2000 is on the box. Is it an older machine?12:29
GridCubeif it has w2k it probably is12:30
* cfhowlett ... 2000?!12:31
xubuntu202yes it is... AMD Athlon 650Mhz with 384 of RAM12:31
xubuntu202win2000 recognizes the external DVD. I could even make a DVD. the thing is that it doesn't get recognised in the booting system12:32
braulioHello everyone. Can anyone give me a help? I'm just starting with Linux and I installed the Xubuntu 13.04 on it. Everything is working perfectly but I have a problem that is already known for the EeePC PXB1001: The internal microphone does not work. Is there a simple way to fix it?12:36
GridCubexubuntu202: you might have to use PLoP12:41
GridCubexubuntu202: http://www.plop.at/en/whatisplop.html12:43
GridCubebraulio: if you found out its a known problem, then in the same place there should be a workaround12:44
GridCubeif theres not, then theres probably not a workaround12:45
GridCubebraulio: according to the internet the microphone should work on any kernel past 312:55
Sysicheck your pulseaudio settings12:56
braulioGridCube: Hi, I have this exact same problem: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/alsa-driver/+bug/689258 apparently one guy fixed it... but since Iḿ just beggining with Linux they are speaking in a language that I'm not familiar with yet.12:56
ubottuUbuntu bug 689258 in alsa-driver (Ubuntu) "Microphone does not work in Aus eeePC 1001px!" [Undecided,Confirmed]12:56
GridCubebraulio: yes, he is saying he updated his kernel, but you already have a much much newer kernel that the one he is using12:56
GridCubedo check your setting to see if you dont have the microphone mutted12:57
GridCubesee in pavucontrol, or in alsamixer that thats not the case12:57
brauliowell, when I check on the volumes it is not muted, and it doesn't seem like the mic is not installed because it responds when I clap in front of it, but the input is just too weak. I checked the volumes and it is all in the max.12:58
GridCubebraulio: did you check in alsamixer?12:59
braulioI checked also the "alsamixer" thing, and raised all the volumes. Is there another place where I should check it?12:59
ToaHello! I use a version of Xubuntu 13.10 on July 22. I have the following problem: Indicator plugin does not work correctly. Adjusting the sound is not active. Screenshot - http://rghost.ru/47590052/image.png12:59
GridCubeToa: :) care to report in #xubuntu-devel please?13:00
cfhowlettToa, 13.10 is beta.  no support here.13:00
ubottuToa,: Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) will be the 19th release of Ubuntu. Announcement: http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/1252 - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+113:00
GridCubebraulio: do you understand spanish?13:01
GridCubebraulio: http://www.ubuntu-es.org/node/14436613:01
ToaThank you all! I'll go to # xubuntu-devel13:03
braulioGridCube: Hey man, well according to that guy he fixed his audio issues but his mic still don't work... My audio is fine, just the mic that isn't working properly13:03
GridCubebraulio: if you see the first comment he says that he needed to "descompensate" the microphone settings, basically rendering it mono, also see that the last comment says that in later kernel versions he needed to reboot for the workaround to work13:05
braulioGridCube: wow, definitelly the imput volume changed here, I'm going to make a few tests here to see if that is noise or if it is actually capting something. brb13:08
braulioGridCube: hey man, The microphone is definitelly working when I just use one channel. But how do I "lock" it so it won't lower the input level? It automatically lower the volume when I try it on Skype for example.13:11
GridCubei dunno13:11
GridCubeaint there a lock button on pavucontrol?13:12
brauliothere is a button to lock channels together, which is what we don want13:14
brauliowhen I use it on skype, it automatically lower the volume levels13:15
GridCubesorry i dont know13:15
brauliojust found that Skype was doing that by itself13:15
GridCubei do know that if while you use skype you set pavucontrol setting then it will try to remember the settings for skype13:16
GridCubenot just the globals but the particular13:16
braulioYeah, I just looked up here and now it is working great.13:17
braulioMan, thank you SO much.13:18
braulioI was getting nervous here because of this problem haha13:18
