max76hello you speak french ?12:15
sirrI have managed to create .desktop shortcuts that I can launch applications with.. however, I can't launch applications properly from a bash.sh script.. normally done like /path/my_program & It's like I can't detach the terminal in lubuntu :/13:13
IQmansirr: try to add to .desktop file RunInTerminal=True or something like that13:14
sirrIQman: ok thanks, I'll try that13:16
IQmansirr: more precisely add "Terminal=True"13:18
sirrIQman: thanks :)13:18
Hyuristylehello, please what this represents15:53
Hyuristyleand thermal_zone215:53
wxlHyuristyle: you might find acpi.sourceforge.net/documentation/thermal.html instructive16:01
Hyuristylebut acpi is not installed here, it still applies?16:03
wxlit's one of those better safe than sorry sort of things Hyuristyle16:05
wxlbut besides, you probably have acpi installed (in the kernel)16:06
Hyuristyleok, thanks16:07

Spaceman255good morning/afternoon17:44
Spaceman255Question: does lubuntu 13.10 provide as good of an experience with older/slower hardware that 12.04 does?17:46
Spaceman255or should I just use 12.0417:46
deleted_I haven't noticed a big difference between 13 and 1217:47
deleted_how old are you talking17:47
deleted_Oh sorry, I'm running 13.04, you asked about .1017:48
Spaceman255wanting to install on a mini-itx mainboard, 1.5ghz 1gb ram, 1tb disk C7 processor17:48
Spaceman255no matter 13.04 is ok17:48
Spaceman255the C7 is like 2005 vintage17:49
deleted_I ran 12.04 on a p4 3Ghz 1GB RAM 120GB IDE and it was very quick17:49
Spaceman255Via made the chip and the mainboard, low power 20 watts power consumption17:49
deleted_and I haven't noticed issues in speed between 13/12, only some issues with PAE that you may need to look into depending on your specific processor17:49
deleted_Because I believe 12 was the last release to support PAE17:50
deleted_My laptop is about to die and I am leaving this lecture hall,so I will be abck in a few minutes.17:50
Spaceman255PAE was an issue witf an old hp/compaq laptop I installed on17:50
Spaceman255the 1tb disk was free so I thought I'd just build a lightweight server running Apache17:54
Spaceman255lubuntu seems to be favored for older/slower hardware17:54
Spaceman255gotta run, tnks for the input17:57
deleted_Hi, are you still here?18:04
deleted_we were discussing PAE IIRC18:15
padrinoyou know when I boot Lubuntu from USB and it says 'install', is that installing to my HDD or thumb drive? Because my internal HDD is flopped and practically doesn't work at all18:38
=== padrino is now known as paddyboi
=== paddyboi is now known as padrino
ianorlinHard drive unless you chose to install it on the thumb drive for some reason but not usre meant to read and wirte all the time18:50
padrinoAh :(18:50
padrinoI'm so confused18:51
ianorlinwith what?18:51
padrinoWell my internal HDD is practically fucked18:52
padrinoCan't even boot Windows, so I booted Tails OS from USB and worked fine, but now I just booted lubuntu and I clicked install and I think the install to HDD will cause it to flop18:52
ianorlinis it an old ide drive?18:52
ianorlinI have a comp where I can keep it alive through an external18:52
deleted_Have you run any disk checks18:52
padrinodeleted_ yeah ran one that it gave the option of when I booted up lubuntu for first time and all it said was "1 error found in a file"18:53
padrinoianorlin yeah very old, think that's why it's failing18:53
padrinoI think the only option might be "try without installing" therefore just running it from the USB (not internal HDD required)18:54
ianorlinthat doesn't work for the alt installer though18:54
ianorlinif you are using that18:55
padrinoWouldn't just "try without install" suffice for browsing the web18:56
deleted_Is that what you want to do18:56
padrinoBecause I really don't think my HDD will be able to handle the lubuntu install18:56
padrinodeleted_ I think that's all I need it for?18:56
padrinoIt's been on the "prepare to install Lubuntu" screen for about 10 minutes now. Either that's normal or HDD completely flopping18:57
ianorlinor bad usb installer18:58
ianorlindid you run a self check on it?18:58
padrinoinaorlin on the USB or Laptop?18:58
ianorlindid you check md5sum?18:58
padrinoNope :(18:58
padrinoI only put the USB in, did the Lubuntu disk check, only found 1 error. The proceeded to install Lubuntu18:59
padrinoShall I attempt to quit the installer and just boot without installing?19:00
deleted_Well if you just need to browse the net I would imagine a live CD would suffice19:00
ianorlinI tihnk you should attempt to run the check where it says test disk for defects19:00
padrinoinarlin that's what I did19:01
padrinoAnd it came back with "found 1 error in a file"19:01
ianorlinit found an error is not good19:01
padrinoAnd that was it19:01
padrinoI thought 1 error was minor19:01
ianorlinit is still enough to break stuff19:02
padrinoAh ffs :( I'll just wait for it to install and then reboot from USB without installation19:02
padrinoI assume it's not safe to just cut power to laptop whilst Lubuntu is installing19:06
padrinoAnd turn it off by holding down power19:06
ianorlinis going anywhere?19:09
padrinoI'll take a photo19:09
padrinoI appreciate the help btw19:10
padrinoIt's been on this for about 15 min now: http://imgur.com/HSUSAnP19:11
ianorlinhttp://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2074949 found this of a similar problem19:24
ianorlinI wonder does control alt f1 do anything?19:25
sirrA tricky one.. can anyone think of a way to detect and launch a script if the desktop resolution is changed.. it's running under VMware with VMware tools. Have created a script that corrects the desktop layout with conky and all that.. but it has to be triggered manually.21:05
Private_Userhi all, any reason why Lubuntu would not shut down when I try to shutdown via GUI. When I select shutdown it restarts the machine23:08
zleapwhat happens if you do sudo shutdown halt ?23:23
zleapthat should shut down, if not its probably a power management issue23:23
Private_Userit also reboots23:30
zleapwhat version of lubuntu are you using23:30
Private_UserI used "sudo shutdown -P now" and "sudo shutdown -H now" both the same23:30
Private_UserLubuntu 12.0423:31
zleapi have come across this before but that was years ago,23:31
zleaphave you tried googling23:31
Private_UserI have also found this solution which I tried but still nothing http://netgator.blogspot.com/2012/07/ubuntu-lubuntu-1204-shutdown-doesnt.html23:32
zleapdoes that work23:32
zleapthis is the LTS right23:33
Private_Userso far everything I found via google does not make a difference23:34
zleaplsb_release -a23:34
zleapdoes that tell you if your using 12.04 or 12.04.x where the .x is the update number or something23:34
Private_Userit states under description Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS23:35
zleapi wonder what we are up to,  when was the last time you updated23:36
zleapPrivate_User, just asked for some help so someone may come in and help us with this23:36
Private_Userok thanks, much appreciated23:37
zleaphi mozybonz23:39
zleapCan you help Private_User with the shutdown issue,23:42
zleaplubuntu 12.04.323:42
zleapok i got 2 go,  good luck with trying to fix this,23:44
