MrHotsauceno im having an issue with my headset after upgrade00:02
MrHotsauceflash is a tad derpy but it works good enough for me to not bother with it00:02
MaggieWish I hadn't upgraded now, it boots up slower and probably should have left well enough alone.00:03
MaggieIf it isn't broke....00:04
MrHotsaucei tend to run the latest versions i would run the 13.10 alpha build but i dont want to reinstall my os00:04
MaggieI am pretty new to Xubuntu, but it beats Windows for sure00:06

xubuntu916Hello, I just purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 that shipped with Windows 8 (64 bit). I immediately formatted it and installed Xubuntu 13.04 using LUKS for everything except /boot. When I attempt to boot the system it falls back to the next available boot medium (PXE, USB, etc). I am able to do a chroot into the system after cryptsetup and mounting. Grub appears to be installed correctly. I'd appreciate any help.03:13
ubottuGRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub203:17
well_laid_lawnI don't know about luks sorry03:17
xubuntu916Alright. I wasn't sure if that was strictly a grub thing, or if something with the new secure boot/windows 8 had created different headaches for installing nix OSes.03:19
xubuntu916When I attempt to install Grub it says that I have no BIOS Boot Partition and its only alternative is to use blocklists (then failing). I remember seeing a BIOS option of that nature in the partitioning system and disregarding it, so I will reinstall with a few MB dedicated to that and see what happens.03:25
nerdtronhi all!03:40
nerdtronany good themes for xubuntu?04:07
xubuntu916For anyone else who may have the Windows 8/LUKS boot issue, the solution (for me, at least) was to reinstall adding the first partition as BIOS Boot Partition (I used 25 MB, though 5 would probably have been enough). Next I unlocked the encrypted partition and mounted the boot partition inside that, then reinstalled Grub. That seems to work, as I am typing this from the hard drive OS.04:23
jorjhello. anyone uses xubuntu 12.04? i have an problem with xscreensaver, i think, but can not find any info about my problem. periodically stop working screen locking (xflock). reason - not running xscreensaver. it disappears from process list. i could start it manually ("xscreensaver&" at terminal or at ALT+F2 prompt). i tried ptions to be verbose and to log xscreensaver work, but no error found after process crushed. anyone knows this05:44
nerdtroni'm using xubuntu..but i'm not using xscreensaver because it looks awful06:10

alfonsojonIt works fine but 2D graphics acceleration is horrid08:03

Noskcajalfonsojon, have you tried the proprietary drivers?08:04
alfonsojonjockey-gtk says I have none available08:04
Noskcajalfonsojon, ok. maybe try the samsung website or upgrading to 13.10. i can't think of anything else sorry08:06
alfonsojonAlright, thanks08:06
alfonsojonThen again, Chromebooks are only meant to run Chrome OS... lol08:06

xubuntu323Hello, Concerning:  external hard drive 320GB Western Digital - When trying to open the HD and see the files, I get the message: Error when getting information for file '/media/BACKUP_WD/HP':     Failed to open directory "BACKUP_WD".  Error when getting information for file '/media/BACKUP_WD/HP':09:35
xubuntu323Failed to open directory "BACKUP_WD".  Error when getting information for file '/media/BACKUP_WD/HP'--Input/output error.09:36
xubuntu323I am therefore unable to open the directory on this HD. It seems that the folder "HP" has a problem prohibiting the opening of the hard drive.09:37
bekksYour conclusion is wrong.09:39
bekksIt seems that you get I/O errors when accessing the drive. So check the output of dmesg.09:40
xubuntu323Thanks, but what I have to look at in the dmesg output?09:44
bekksEverything unusual.09:46
xubuntu323To bekks: thanks again but to many lines whose I have no clue --> I cannot find something "unusual".10:04
bekksxubuntu323: Then pastebin the entire output.10:05
nerdtronany errors like I/O error in dmesg?10:06
Sysierror warning or E_ are sings of problem10:07
bekksSysi: E_ is pretty seldom in dmesg. E_* are programmatical error messages.10:10
bekksxubuntu323: So are you going to pastebin the entire dmesg output?10:14
xubuntu323Yes, it's coming...10:14

xubuntu323To nerdtron: with xubuntu, I cannot access the entire drive; with win xp, I can access the drive except the folder "HP" which seems to be corrupted.10:21

bekksxubuntu323: So are you going to pastebin the entire dmesg output?10:24
nerdtronif it is I/O errors, it could mean a damaged hard drive. sorry but your drive could be failing already10:24
Sysiit's backup time10:25
Sysiyou can try checking drive health with S.M.A.R.T https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Smartmontools10:26
bekksBackup time has already passed - no backup means no data worth to be kept.10:26
bekksFirst, pastebin dmesg. :)10:26

xubuntu323No, sorry, it's not done because I am discovering the pastebinit system.10:42
bekksOk, then good luck in solving your I/O error issues.10:42
xubuntu323Go back to your activities. Thanks anyway. I will try later.10:42

Pwnnawhy is it that workspace settings doesn't have the number of rows settings?19:47

knomePwnna, try checking the workspaces applet settings.19:49
Pwnnai want to have a square like setting19:49
knomeright. no, that's not possible.19:49
Pwnnabut http://docs.xfce.org/_media/xfce/xfce4-panel/pager.png19:50
knomesure. that's the applet settings.19:51
Pwnnai see19:51
knomeno problem19:51
Pwnnais it possible to add in the unity like heads up so you know which workspace you're on19:52
Pwnnawhen you move between them19:52
Pwnnajust a big text in the center showing the name would be nice.19:52
Pwnnabetter if we can get a grid going.19:52
Pwnna(which project is this? I can probably help implement that)19:52
knomeno, i don't think so, but afaik the workspace applet shows you which one that is19:52
knomei'd imagine it's something in xfdesktop (but don't take my word for it)19:53
Pwnnait's better UX if we showed a big thing like unity.19:53
Pwnnashould be /relatively/ easy to implement19:53
knometechnically might be that, socially can be different19:54
Pwnnaturn it off by default19:54
knomeit's still more codebase which is sometimes unwanted19:55
bgardnerknome: +119:55
Pwnnai feel like it is a good feature to have.19:55
knomehowever, this is getting offtopic for this channel; i'd recommend asking in #xfce-dev19:55
knomePwnna, sure. that's one for the feature. i'm pretty sure you'll find at least 2 developers against it (not to discourage, but to keep things realistic...)19:56
