userbob2I was installing virtualbox on xubuntu with apt-get. Just few days ago i notice (apt-get install virtualbox -v) that version of virtualbox is 3.2. When the latest version is 4.3.6 ? Why is that ?07:00
cfhowlettuserbob2, there are at least 2 versions of virtualbox - the one in the repos which may / may not be the very latest and the one you download from oracle .07:01
userbob2i understand it can't be very latest, but that version in repos is very very old...07:02
userbob2i dont know few years probably ...07:03
cfhowlettuserbob2, stuff enters the repos at different times.  for the very latest packages, run apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade     and that will usually pull the most recent versions from the available repos07:04
userbob2upgrade vs dist-upgrade not the same ?07:05
userbob2i doing apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade07:05
bazhang!dist-upgrade | userbob207:08
ubottuuserbob2: A dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.07:08
userbob2i know that07:09
userbob2but it is difference between upgrade and dist-upgrade ?07:09

mappswhats the las thing it says08:32
xubuntu466yes, after i have selected the flash drive as the boot device08:32
xubuntu466"...stepping: 04)"08:33
mappslooking now:D08:35
xubuntu466Find out anything? :) Thank you for helping.08:56
mappshey sorry im a bit stumped  it just stop at step04?08:58
xubuntu466can it be the cpu?08:59
xubuntu466or the ram?08:59
Poisoned_DragonWell Stepping 04 is part of the description of the cpu.09:03
Poisoned_DragonI don't know if it's relevant to the problem.09:03
Poisoned_DragonYou would have to know what's happening in that moment.09:03
xubuntu466So. Any ideas of what I can do? Is there anything I can do in the BIOS to make it work? Or should i run another version of linux?09:05
Poisoned_Dragondid you try booting with nomodeset?09:07
mappswhat about that noacpi? i remember i had to use that once09:07
Poisoned_DragonIs this a P4/Celeron Socket 478?09:07
Poisoned_DragonOne option at a time.09:07
xubuntu466How do i boot with nomodeset?09:07
Poisoned_Dragonif you mix options now, you won't know what works and what doesn't.09:07
Poisoned_Dragonis this a live session or a full install?09:08
xubuntu466full install09:08
Poisoned_Dragonwhen the computer first boots, hold shift after the bios posts.09:09
Poisoned_DragonYou should be able to get the grub menu.09:09
Poisoned_DragonYou can add and edit options there.09:09
xubuntu466yes. there now09:09
mappsafter you can type them09:11
xubuntu466Now i disabled acpi, and it looks like it's working. There is a blank screen with: "Xubuntu 13.10" and blinking dots beneath.09:37
xubuntu466The dots are just blinking, and nothing happens09:38
xubuntu466NOW IT WORKS!09:39
xubuntu466Thank you for your help :)09:40
mappsi said maybe it was noacpi :P10:00
mappsages back10:00

karl_hi all13:38
karl_I am using xubuntu 13,04,  no more support so I have told it via software updater to upgrade me to 13.10  .   Is there a way to see if it is working?13:39
cfhowlettkarl_, see if WHAT is working?13:42
karl_if the upgrade is working.  The 13.04 software updater  said it was no longer supported.  Asked me if I wanted to upgrade,  I clicked upgrade,  then it just went off and I do not know if it is working now13:43
cfhowlettkarl_, open a terminal and run lsb_release -a    that'll tell you the current version13:44
karl_raring 13.0413:45
ubottukarl_,: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade13:46
karl_upgrade does not seem to be supported anymore13:52
karl_but xubuntu says it is, oh well13:53
cfhowlettkarl_, come to the #ubuntu channel and ask how to upgrade an end of life release.  I've never done and don't know how ...13:54
cfhowlettkarl_, or you could download the ISO and clean install - I'd recommend 12.04 as it's LTS and the new LTS drops in April.13:55
karl_for reference  sudo do-release-upgrade     did the trick13:59
cfhowlettkarl_, I knew there was a trick to somewhere ...13:59
DGRHi guys. It appears HDMI output is broken in 13.10, has anyone found a workaround? (laptop)15:32
DGRsorry. session timed out. I was asking if anyone has a workaround or fix for the broken HDMI output in 13.10? Thank you.15:43
baizonDGR: how is it broken?15:57
baizonit works for me15:58
DGRWhen an HDMI cable is plugged in and I hit Fn+F7 I don't get the dialog to share my desktop anymore16:09
DGRThe kernel is seeing the HDMI device as always disconnected.16:09
DGRAnd there is a LP bug filed for it but wondering if anyone solved this yet. Looks like a kernel regression.16:10

NorthernInstalling xubuntu on my amd athlon. Installation is taking way longer than Debian or Ubuntu/kuduntu. Is this normal?16:38

Dan_DHi there, got a slight issue. On the 'start menu' (button at top left) there is a section called 'Other'. It contains launchers that lead to programs I have deleted. How do I get rid of them? They do not show up in the settings manager!19:04
Dan_DAnd speaking of which, how do I generally delete launchers, not from the menu, but from the system generally, so they do not appear in things like the Open With application list when opening new file types19:04
brainwash1) check  ~/.local/share/applications/19:05
brainwash2) delete the application19:05
Dan_DHow do I get to .local?19:05
brainwashpress ctrl + h19:06
Dan_DNothing changed, except hidden files became hidden again19:06
brainwashso there is no .local folder in your home folder?19:06
Dan_DOh, in the home folder?19:06
Dan_DGot it19:07
brainwash~ means home folder19:07
Dan_DSo, delete all unwanted launchers?19:07
brainwashthe one you don't need anymore19:07
Dan_DI can only see some19:07
Dan_DAll the ones I want to get rid of are not there19:07
Dan_DAlso, have to go to dinner now, be back soon19:08
brainwashDan_D: you might also want to check /usr/share/applications/ which contains the system wide launchers (also the place to look if you don't actually want to delete any application -> question 2)19:10

tazaDoes Xubuntu 13.10 have Fake-PAE installer that doesn't require wizardry?20:35
bekksWhats "Fake-PAE"?20:36
tazaUh, it's a long story. If you know the answer, you can understand the question.20:37
tazatl;dr It's support for processors that have quirky feature support flags20:37
Dan_DHow do I open a .deb via command line, if even possible?21:28
bekksDan_D: Open it to do what?21:28
Dan_DMake it install whatever program it is for21:28
Dan_DRather thn using the softa21:29

cloudbenderIf I reinstall, will xubuntu detect my second monitor ?21:29
bekksyeah, sudo apt-get...21:29
Dan_DSo sudo apt-get install name-of-.deb21:30

knomecloudbender, if you aren't afraid of command line, check 'xrandr -q'21:53

knomexubuntu597, i would suggest to reinstall ubuntu software center to handle your packages21:55
taza12.04 doesn't, but I'd like a newer version21:56
xubuntu597sorry but someone speak italian?21:56
knometaza, you can upgrade to 14.04 from 12.04 in april21:56

ubottuxubuntu597: Vai su #ubuntu-it se vuoi parlare in italiano, in questo canale usiamo solo l'inglese. Grazie! (per entrare, scrivi « /join #ubuntu-it » senza virgolette)21:57
tazaWell, fake-PAE21:57
knometaza, i would imagine there is something that allows you to run it21:57
cloudbenderknome thanks21:57
knometaza, especially since you have processor that actually supports PAE21:57
knometaza, there was some really simple fix for that (which should work for most of those machines), basically just add the word "pae" in /proc/cpuinfo (iirc)21:58
cloudbender... and I suppose man xandr might not hurt either :)21:58
tazaknome: So, do you actually know anything regarding 14.04 and fake-PAE?21:58
knometaza, Unit193 can confirm/tell you more about it21:58
knomecloudbender, or arandr, if you prefer a GUI21:58
cloudbenderk tnx21:58
xubuntu597sorry how can i get root mode?21:58
tazaBecause you sound like you're just half-remembering things that may or may not be accurate.21:58
knometaza, i don't have exact information (yet).21:58
=== GTB3NW is now known as GTB3NW_AWAY
knometaza, talk with Unit193. :)21:59
Unit193knome: It's a bit hacky, so I've stayed away from it (also only have PAE computers) nothing in the official repo.21:59
knomeUnit193, i'm aware of that, but since it might be the only option for those people...21:59
tazaSo the tl;dr is "ignore everything knome has just said, and to be safe, put him on ignore". Got it.21:59
bazhangtaza, please dont do that22:00
tazaUnit193: I'm aware of the Fake-PAE trickery and I also know how hard it is to install an OS doing it.22:00
knometaza, i would you to reconsider your attitude. thanks.22:00
tazaThat's why I would like a non-wizard way of doing it22:00
bazhangdiscussion of 14.04 is in #ubuntu+1 taza not here22:01
tazaWell I actually want to install 13.1022:01
xubuntu597i have romeved!.... i think22:02
tazaBut since it's clear that you're more concerned with regular egos than with actually, y'know, helping people or discussing technology, I don't think I'll benefit from being here anyway.22:03
cloudbenderwell I apt-got ARandR but it still does not detect the second monitor22:11
cloudbenderI'll try a fresh install22:11
