xabsterHi, xorg-edgers is what exactly? I'm reading a lot of different sites about dota2 issues and some of them mention this04:04
xabsterit's related to graphics, but i don't know if it's nvidia or ati or both04:04
xabsterand what it really does04:04
xabsterhas warnings about broken system...04:04
xabsternot sure i just wanna jump into it04:05
holsteinxabster: ppa's are not officially supported, but that is a PPA for graphics drivers04:31
ubottuA Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa and !ppa-purge04:31
xabsteryeah, i wrote that04:31
holsteinxabster: https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa should tell you everything you need to know04:31
holsteinxabster: you wrote what?04:31
xabsterthat it was gfx drivers04:32
holsteinxabster: you'll notice that there are drivers for both nvidia and ati at the link i gave, and maybe that answers the question you have04:36
xabsteryeah, i saw that too, so i guess it04:37
xabster's for both, and there are also other things04:37
xabsterso it appears to be ... unofficial graphics driver updates?04:37
holsteinxabster: they are *all*, bascially as official as they get04:40
holsteinxabster: if you want newer versions of graphics drivers than are in the official repos, then you might want to try that PPA04:41
xabsterright, but there were 33 updates after adding it, so i guess it's newer versions04:41
xabsteri did04:41
xabsteri'm not confused about what ppa's are, i was confused about what exactly it was offering04:41
holsteinxabster: its offering newer packages from an unsupported source04:41
xabsteri heard the xorg-edgers thing before04:41
holsteinxabster: ubuntu is basically frozen, so, you can use ppa's to add sources easily04:41
xabsteryou're answering way too generally for what i'm asking but it's ok04:42
xabsteri know..04:42
holsteinxabster: they are newer, and unsupported, and both nvidia and ati, as well as others04:42

xtrizis it possible to change the theme of xubuntu using dconf editor ?05:39
xubuntu543hi, so I installed xubuntu 13.04 as a dual boot on this windows 7 system, and the install completed successfully without any issues, but when I reboot, I don't see any option to choose which OS I want to boot, it just automatically boots in to windows 7 without so much as pause06:42
xubuntu543question is, does anyone have an idea on what might be happening, known issues of this sort, etc.? The only thing I can think of is that I installed it on my main drive, which is a couple of SSDs in a RAID 0  configuration06:44
Unit193Is this BIOS or EFI?06:47
xubuntu543BIOS, I've never messed with EFI before, not even entirely sure what it is still06:48
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/Grub206:48
Unit193I'd check the first link.06:48
xubuntu543just checking, you're talking to me, right?06:49
Unit193xubuntu543: Yeppers.06:49
Unit193xubuntu543: Grub is the Xubuntu boot manager, it should detect windows and list that as well.06:50
xubuntu543sweet, thank you, checking through the link now06:50
xubuntu543wait, the problem is that the windows installation was the first OS on the system, not the other way like the link suggests--I still have never successfully booted into Xubuntu beyond the LiveCD installation process06:51
Unit193xubuntu543: Well, the process is still pretty much the same if grub failed to install when you first installed the system.06:52
Unit193https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Installing too.06:55
xubuntu543Unit193: sorry for the lag, and thanks for that tip, I'm exploring that further, I suppose that totally makes sense, since I have no recollection of GRUB actually making it onto the system at any point in the process.07:10

ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process.15:40

xabsterHi, I'm about to do another thing to attempt to get my performance from my ATI card back to windows driver levels (which is this here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2139200&p=12619755)18:15
xabsterBefore I do it, I'm wondering if I should uninstall whatever I already have, or if it will just override?18:15
rickyrayjayupgraded to xfce4 and desktop settings is different. i cant figure out how to use a custom image for background...?18:41
LyzardKingI need to know why the fn keys to control backlight work in ubuntu and kubuntu but not in xubuntu18:51
LyzardKingthe notification shows the level of backlight, but it doesn't actually change18:52
Poisoned_DragonUm, a little more info would be helpful18:58
Poisoned_Dragonlike the make and model of the laptop18:58
Poisoned_Dragonthe version of xubuntu you're using18:58
LyzardKingthe laptop is a toshiba l750 with a nvidia card19:01
LyzardKingxubuntu is version 13.10...but I have the same problem with 13.0419:01
Poisoned_DragonLyzardKing, your laptop has an nvidia gpu?19:04

puffI have a thinkpad t520 with ubuntu 13.04, xubuntu-desktop and an HP 6520 printer.  The printer was working fine, but now when I try to print it asks me for photo paper.  I'm not trying to print a photo, I have no idea why it thinks I am, and I can't find any sort of dialog to see the active state of the printer.  Settings Manager/Printer/Printer Properties/Printer Options has "Media Type" set to "Plain Paper"19:33
puffI am literally trying to print some text in MousePad, so I don't know why it thinks it needs photo paper.19:34
puffHm, I found the "Media source" on the printer options, changed from autoselect to main tray...nothing happening.19:39
puffAh, had to hit the OK button on the printer's touchscreen, but still the same response, out of paper.19:40
JZA_hi I have installed xubuntu on my SDcard but I have some issues20:58
JZA_first of it gets very slow sometimes, for no apparent reason.20:58
JZA_I put 2gb of swapping partition but still very very slow at some point.20:58
JZA_I did dmesg and I got this Updating information on frequency 5580 MHz for a 20 MHz width channel with regulatory rule20:58
JZA_not sure if its related.20:59
n3glvgot a few questions if someone has the time21:15
bekksn3glv: First ask the questions, then see if someone answers.21:15
n3glvok, running xubuntu 13 on a gateway (acer) laptop21:16
bekksn3glv: Which "Ubuntu 13"?21:16
n3glvit's an intel B960, was I right to choose amd64 distro?21:16
n3glvumm, 13.04? might be 13.1021:17
bekksn3glv: Check it using lsb_release -a21:17
n3glvhence my reason to join this chan21:17
n3glvDescription:Ubuntu 13.0421:17
n3glvnearly everything works, but cpu stepping and lcd brightness seem to be borked21:18
n3glvso I came to see if someone can point me in the right direction to fix21:20
* n3glv Beuler?21:22
JZA_I need to know why my installation go so slow21:22
JZA_is a 16GB SD card21:22
n3glvJZA_: slow internet?21:22
JZA_and I use it as a HD replacement21:22
n3glvSD are SLOW compared to hd21:22
n3glvwhat class / Mb/Sec?21:23
JZA_n3glv: well it's much more slow than the liveUSB I was running21:23
JZA_how do I get that info.21:23
JZA_dmesg gave me something like this..21:23
n3glvwritten on the ds card21:23
n3glvSD rather21:23
n3glvor packing it came in?21:23
JZA_Updating information on frequency 5580  MHz for a 20 MHz width channel with regulatory rule21:23
JZA_no, I installed from my usb -> SD card.21:24
n3glvsomething like class 4?21:24
n3glvyes, THE CARD HAS A SPEED RATE21:24
JZA_know do I know which class is it?21:24
n3glvand, if you installed vs making a live SD, it's going to be horribly slow21:25
bekksJZA_: Look at the card, it os printed on it, most likely.21:25
n3glvsince it's no longer ramdisk21:25
JZA_well I am running from it21:25
* n3glv wonders JZA_ home language21:25
* n3glv doubts it's english21:25
JZA_n3glv: what's the difference?21:25
n3glvJZA_: does it have a circle, with a number, like 4 inside on the SD card?21:26
JZA_n3glv: no idea, is inside the machine21:26
n3glvwhere's the packing it came in?21:26
JZA_n3glv: long gone.. is not a new card21:26
n3glvso, prolly a class 421:26
bekksJZA_: the difference is: performance difference at a factor of 1000 between flash memory (SD Card) and your RAM.21:26
n3glvor even slower21:26
n3glveasily 1000x21:27
n3glvI use raspberry pi for some things21:27
JZA_bekks: so my liveUSB (which is even older) was running faster was because it was loaded on the RAM disk.21:27
bekksJZA_: Correct.21:27
n3glvand going from class 4 to class 10 > rated at 30Mb/sec was HUGE improvement21:27
n3glva live CD / USB does not do tons of file i/o to the device21:29
n3glvit caches most of what it needs in ramdisk21:29
JZA_I see21:29
JZA_so should it be better to disable persistance on the RAM21:29
bekksThe I/O is used in every linux.21:29
bekkspersistence to RAM is pointless. Turn off your computer, and your "persistent RAM" will be gone.21:30
bekks12Why do you think persistence affect the usage of the I/O cache?21:30
JZA_I just need to be able to work on this machine and save my files.21:30
n3glvuse cloud storage21:30
bekksThen use a persistent liveusb and store your files whereever you want.21:30
n3glvor mount another usb device and write to that21:31
JZA_huh? how can cloud storage help me?21:31
bekksn3glv: cloud storage is most likely massively slower than a slow SD card.21:31
n3glvJZA_: it's non volitile <sp>21:31
n3glvhe said save files21:31
JZA_I need to be able to work, some times include, installing new apps, and also saving configurations to it, like timezone, etc.21:31
bekksn3glv: Even for storing files, cloud storage is most likely slower than a SD card.21:31
JZA_I said work21:32
bekksJZA_: Then just use a persistent liveUSB.21:32
n3glvJZA_: external usb hard drive?21:32
n3glvyes, casper21:32
bekksJZA_: Or just install Ubuntu on your harddrive.21:32
n3glvthat does not appear to be an option21:32
bekks"nope it isnt an option" or "nope it is"?21:33
JZA_I sometimes dont have the ext-HD available.21:33
bekksJZA_: Then a USB device is your only chance.21:33
bekksJZA_: Get a fast one, to have some performance at least.21:34
JZA_bekks: right but I need to open it, casper is not really helping.21:34
n3glvwhy not?21:34
n3glvmay need remounted rw?21:34
JZA_because it doesnt allow me to install apps to it.21:34
n3glvit _should_21:34
bekksJZA_: It does.21:34
JZA_also can't access the 3GB missing from a 4GB USB disk21:35
bekksJZA_: You can remaster an image as you like, using casper.21:35
n3glvare you using sudo or as root?21:35
JZA_I can sudo su root21:35
n3glvinstall gparted21:35
bekkssudo su root is pointless.21:35
n3glvgparted the usb device21:35
bekkssudo -i or sudo, no need for su.21:35
n3glvsee what it says is there21:35
JZA_I have gparted, can I partition the USB which the OS is running from?21:35
n3glvdepends on how it's mounted21:35
n3glvand partitioned21:36
n3glvwell, I'm out for now21:40
JZA_I am doing the partition, now, I will try to edit casper file for persistance check up21:40
