dunpealHi. I just installed 13.10 from USB. Installation was ostensibly successful, but when I try to boot the monitor just turns black. How do I debug this?00:46
Unit193!nomodeset | Perhaps this?00:47
ubottuPerhaps this?: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter00:47
dunpealUnit193: would that apply despite the LiveCD itself (Try Xubuntu) loading without issue?00:49
=== Guest55226 is now known as m00se
=== m00se is now known as Guest30537
Unit193dunpeal: I wouldn't think so, but may as well check it.  What happens if you remove the boot options  'quiet splash'  ?01:19
Unit193(It will give a lot more output, should hit on what's up.)01:20
=== Guest30537 is now known as m00se
dunpealUnit193: it's not exactly a black screen.... It's like a terminal screen with a flashing cursor.01:31
dunpealwow, it doesn't look like the bootloader is loading at all01:31
Unit193Then this sounds like it's sitting at tty 7> with no X on that screen.01:31
dunpealI don't know what's going on :(01:31
Unit193Left Shift to show it during boot.01:32
dunpealther'es no tty prompt01:32
Unit193Blinking curser is what happens with the TTY's higher than 7 when X isn't on them.01:32
dunpealsomething is seriously messed up01:32
Unit193How new is this computer?01:32
dunpealUnit193: not sure what you mean?01:32
dunpealholding left shift doesn't do anything01:33
dunpealUnit193: it's pretty freaking new, it's a Lenovo S30 workstation01:33
dunpealmoi expensive01:33
Unit193So UEFI?  Amd64 install?01:33
dunpealyes and yes01:33
dunpealI had Xubuntu 13.04 installed on it before, and it worked01:34
dunpealnow I wiped the drive and installed 13.10, and got this01:34
Unit193When I installed on a UEFI computer once, I had to use that boot repair tool (nothing went wrong, part of the uefi instructions.)01:35
Unit193Did you see the UEFI guide?  I presume so since you had 13.04.01:35
dunpealUnit193: which guide?01:35
ubottuUEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI01:35
dunpealUnit193: do you mean this tool? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair01:36
Unit193Note, I've used/installed Linux on UEFI once, not my strong point.01:36
dunpealthe UEFI guide seems to basically boil down to "Run Boot Repair" for me01:37
Unit193Heh, yeah, noticed that? :P01:37
dunpealUnit193: I ran boot repair, did everything it asked, and Xubuntu still won't boot :(01:47
dunpealUnit193: this is the paste it gave me: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6811800/01:48
Unit193"Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sda1/EFI/ubuntu/shimx64.efi file"  At the top of the file it says /dev/sda has no MBR, does it after installing grub?  At the POSIX screen, should give you a boot option (likely where you selected your USB device), do you have an Ubuntu (or other interesting options.) there?01:54
* dunpeal checks01:57
dunpealUnit193: what's "POSIX screen"?01:58
Unit193s/POSIX/POST/  the thing that comes up and says "Dell" before booting.01:58
dunpealUnit193: no interesting options01:59
Unit193As I don't know UEFI -> #ubuntu ?02:00
dunpealUnit193: thanks... maybe I should just install in legacy mode?02:00
Unit193Unless you want to mess with UEFI, I would.02:01
dunpealUnit193: is there a good set of instructions about it somewhere?02:01
Unit193dunpeal: Not that I know of, I've been looking up some stuff but so far mainly geared towards QEMU because I have no hardware with it.02:02
dunpealUnit193: there's no file sda1/EFI02:02
dunpealit's an empty directory02:03
dunpealwhere do I get the file that's supposed to be at sda1/EFI/ubuntu/shimx64.efi?02:04
Unit193Shim is for when Secure Boot is enabled.02:06

heavyammoI have this issue with my Skype icon in the indicator plugin tray... I click on on it and instead of opening skype it shows the menu that you would see if you right clicked - Recent chats, all status changes etc. and  there is no way to open skype...09:08
heavyammoI need to quit and reopen skype so it pops up again09:08
heavyammoI tried using a desktop shortcut to Skype but it tries to open another instance, so it doesn't work09:16
Unit193Normally the top choice is "Activate"09:17
heavyammoMine is Recent chats09:17

netrickhow can I have "adwaita" theme in xubuntu? I think it's one of xfce default themes, it is available in almost every xfce distro. Unfortunately it's not present in xubuntu, is there any way I can install adwaita gtk theme in xubuntu?20:42
poeticrpmnetrick: download it from the web, unpack it, place the adwaita folder in ~/.themes, then launch appearance settings and select it. You might need to restart X for everything to take effect20:44
poeticrpmnetrick, I need to use lxappearance to set the theme for some strange reason, but im on Arch for now. Something to keep in mind if the above doesnt work20:45
netrickpoeticrpm: okay, I understand, however I can't find adwaita theme on the web... only modified versions of adwaita, but I cant find orginal adwaita. Do you know maybe where can  I download it?20:46
poeticrpmnetrick, good one. I cant find it either. Hold on20:49
netrickI downloaded xfce source but there is only source code, no themes... Maybe it's included with gnome?20:50
netrickupdate - I found themes in xfce source (there in xfce-gtk-manager archive), but there is no adwaita... so adwaita doesnt ship with xfce. However most distros do have adwaita on xfce (like fedora or manjaro)20:52
Sysiadwaita is gnome default theme20:54
netrickis it default for gnome3 as well?20:54
Sysidefault since gnome320:54
netrickSo I will download gnome3 source and most likely adwaita should be there20:54
poeticrpmnetrick, https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=7501820:55
poeticrpmI know its for Arch, but it gives you a link. Does that link take you to the source or give you an error?20:55
netrickerror :/20:56
poeticrpmI built a package for you, but now I cant find a place to host it20:56
netrickhmm lemme look for a host20:56
netrickcould you try uploading it there?20:57
Sysiit might not work without adwaita theme engine20:57
poeticrpmnetrick, http://www.sendspace.com/file/gujmd020:59
netrickadwaita is for sure portable to xfce, maybe it will work with just theme files20:59
netrickthank you!20:59
poeticrpmnetrick: the sizes are different on my disk vs what it shows on the site. Double check to make sure its all there21:00
poeticrpmand Sysi is prolly right... the theme I use doesnt need an "engine" beyond the one I had21:01
poeticrpmnetrick, let me know if it works21:01
netrickgive me a second21:01
netrickworks like a charm! big thanks!21:04
poeticrpmnetrick, awesome21:04
netrickadwaita is my favourite theme and I really wanted to use it with xubuntu21:04
poeticrpmSysi, LOL21:05
Sysimight need this too https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3/+files/gnome-themes-standard-data_3.10.0-0ubuntu1~saucy1_all.deb21:05
Sysibut if you got it, nice21:05
netrickwow, .deb package, thank you as well Sysi21:05
netrickthank you both for help again.21:09
poeticrpmnetrick, np- save both in case of new install lol21:13
netrickyea, I saved both on pendrive21:17
z4nD4Rhi all. :)23:16
soshiHi all, can anyone suggest a place to get started for setting up remote access into xubuntu from Windows?23:17
z4nD4Rsoshi: remote access means what? ssh? nfs? samba? vnc?23:18
soshiI don't have anything currently set up, I am looking for the best place to start googling23:18
z4nD4Rsoshi: so maybe it'll be good to start with answer to my question :)23:19
kRushfirst figure out what kind of access you want23:19
soshiapologies, I think VNC is what I want? I'm looking for a full desktop remote control23:19
soshinot just a command line23:19
kRushI've only ever used nxclient for that, works fine. no idea how much of a pain it is to set up the server side tough23:24
z4nD4Rthere are many ways how to accomplish this... ssh with x11 option, vnc server...23:25
soshiz4nd4r, I will look into the different types of connection. Since I don't know much, I was looking for a good starting point. Thank you23:33
z4nD4Rsoshi: not at all.. :)23:35
z4nD4RAll, are you using a conky? If yes, show some, I need inspiration..23:35
