glen_k, thanks for getting me to logon!03:50
Runemoroyw :D03:50
Runemoroalso, if you ever need to reinstall everything you can find a list of what packages were installed in /var/log/apt/history.log  to save you some time while reinstalling what programs you had03:51
ianorlinor you can use dpkg --get-selections < packagelist.txt03:52
Runemorobut that lists dependencies03:52
ianorlinah true03:53
RunemoroI have to go, bye everyone03:57

jarnosHow can I report an audio bug? I have remarkable noise shown in input levels in Audacity, even if Capture channel is muted. There is more noise in the left channel.14:22
melodiedoes someone know if in Precise the kernels of the series 3.8.x are with or without PAE?19:50
Unit193Not off hand, but wouldn't be hard to tell if you just pull the /boot/config-3.8*-generic file.19:52
melodiehi Unit193 yes, right. I have not thought of going to fetch the list of files, so bad for me :)20:21
utusanEarlier I reported here about Firefox not starting in Lubuntu session but still won't even with the lxsession update today.  Funny  it starts with LXDE session as well as in openbox/razor session.20:23
Unit193utusan: I didn't read scrollback, did someone tell you to call it from the terminal?20:24
utusanterminal or not it doesn't20:24
Unit193Yes, but in this case it may give some interesting output.20:25
Unit193Huh.  This is 13.10?  And any configuration changed?  dmesg/syslog say anything useful?20:26
Unit193Firefox works in Lubuntu here, 13.10.20:26
utusanthis is 14.0420:27
Unit193Aha, alrighty.20:27
* Unit193 grumbles, decides to download and look.20:30
utusanWhat I don't understand is it works in LXDE( right now) and openbox/razor session.  This Firefox is the same app shared by precise/raring/saucy install.20:31
utusanLubuntu session executes lxsession but LXDE calls startlxde if this helps.20:33
Unit193Know what that script has in it?20:34
utusanlxsession is a binary file but startlxde is too long. not sure if you have it but you can look it up on /usr/share/xsessions20:38
Unit193I checked, I didn't.  I could look it up on LP, but I'm waiting for trusty to download, and it's not going quickly at ~300KB/s :/20:39
NuSueyfinally got a brain and installing lubuntu instead of ubuntu :o gratz brain..20:39
Unit193Congrats and glad you like it, NuSuey.20:39
utusanUnit193: hope you can have it fixed.  Just let you know so I can use lubuntu session again.  Meantime I'm using razor-qt/openbox/LXDE20:41
Unit193utusan: Well, trusty is very early development right now, and I'm not really a Lubuntu dev.  Might be worth filing against lxsession or lubuntu-meta or somesuch.20:42
NuSueyUnit193: just wondering where can I find what, etc .. for example searching for - how to change sound output :)21:02
Unit193alsamixer is the sound tool, but you can install pulse too if you need it.21:02
NuSueyUnit193: yeah, but where can setup to output the sound to the HDMI output for example :) seraching for that21:05
NuSueyI would rather not use pulse audio21:09
NuSueygives me issues21:09
Unit193NuSuey: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture#HDMI_output_does_not_work21:11
NuSueyyeah the asound command worked.. just wondering how to change the whole system sound output to hdmi ..and back :)21:12
Unit193Yes, it said that too, ~/.asoundrc21:13
