Psil0CybinHey guys I am using Xubuntu 12.04 LTS and I am trying to use xfce4-power-manager in order to dim the screen when it is inactive for 20 seconds, yet when I leave my computer to idle it does not dim the screen and keeps it blaring on full brightness, I was wondering if there is anything i can do to diagnose this issue, I have already posted on the forums and followed all instructions (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2208549&p=12943302:59
Psil0Cybin20) thought maybe someone here can point me in the right direction please :D02:59
xubuntu632hi, is there any way someone could answer a quick question?03:04
krytarik!ask | xubuntu63203:05
ubottuxubuntu632: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience03:05
xubuntu632Thanks...I was wondering if I can repair an installation from a live usb, my drive got a few bad sectors and the partition with xubuntu took the brunt of it03:07
Psil0CybinIf someone knows how I can solve the dim issue please pm me :D03:24

ubottubasketball: Please don't ask the same question in multiple Ubuntu channels at the same time. Many helpers are in more than one channel and it's not fair to them or the other people seeking support.03:26
basketballok Unit193  do you have an anser03:26

Guest63761anyone running bare metal VMs on older thinkpads, e.g T61?07:42
ROPAI created an extra panel in Xubuntu, how do I get a launcher to take me to the home folder into the new panel??y07:56
Unit193ROPA: "Directory Menu" should do it.07:58
Unit193Guest63761: "Bare metal" and "VMs"?07:58
Guest63761Bare metal means there is no guest OS running virtual machine OSs08:00
Guest63761pure OSs using the native I/O08:00
Guest63761just like servers in the cloud08:00
Guest63761e.g AWS08:01
Unit193But I personally do not own a Thinkpad.08:02
Guest63761or any other PC for that matter08:04
Guest63761e.g. using Zenclient08:04
Unit193Right, so the operating system installed on the hardware is the VM (basically), ala Xen.  No, I've only messed with kvm/qemu and vbox.  I highly respect Xen though.08:07
Guest63761correct, Xen08:07
Guest63761how are you set up with Xubuntu, natively?08:08
Guest63761and as for Office docs?08:09
Unit193Libreoffice does well enough for what I need.08:09
Unit193It's compatibility isn't 100% there, but if I need something more compatible, or publisher, wine handles it quite well now.08:10
Guest63761ok, thanks.  I still need to the features and the compatibility of Office 2003 with the 2007 extensions08:10
Guest63761but other than that I prefer to be in a linux env08:11
Unit193Understandable, yes.08:11
Guest63761so you run wine in Linux?08:11
Unit193Yes, there are some windows applications I need (and skifree! :P )08:11
Guest63761hows Photoshop on wine?08:16
Unit193I'd have to check the appdb on that one, not used it, just use Gimp.08:18
tarta8I'm having a PROBLEM that i'm unable to fix, even looking thru google so i hope someone can help me10:26

mnemochi, is there any ppa to get 4.12 on 14.04?12:20
mnemocppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12 doesn't support Trusty12:22
zukeprimemnemoc:  funny you should ask that.  Here's a tutorial video  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4Myiv-4-vA12:27
mnemoczukeprime: thanks12:30
brainwashmnemoc: you don't need the PPA for 14.0412:31
mnemocbrainwash: I've got but I've got 4.11 instead of 4.1212:32
Unit1934.12 doesn't exist, 4.11 is the development snapshot for it.12:33
brainwash4.12 has not been released yet, the PPA contains the 4.11 components12:33
mnemoci see12:33
mnemocxfdesktop4 keeps crashing and crashing :(12:33
zukeprimemnemoc: desktop crash has been reported for the beta.  Mine crashes to12:34
mnemocif it's a known problem and the 4.11 in 14.04 is indeed the latest dev code It's just about waiting. so I'm good. :)12:35
zukeprimebrainwash:  you seem to be knowledgeable about 14.04...any reason the beta still has xscreensaver?  Power options *seem* really messed up, i.e. don't do anything and I can't configure light-locker12:35
zukeprimeis this something I should report?12:36
brainwashwell, it's a beta after all, the issues are known12:36
brainwashxscreensaver will get removed at some point and a new package will be included to configure light-locker12:37
brainwash-> light-locker-settings12:37
zukeprimeyeah...i'm down with it.  But I thought the beta is in feature freeze.12:37
zukeprimejust trying to understand the process12:38

zukeprimecool, thx!12:38
brainwashso beta 2 should be in better shape12:39
zukeprimeone of these days, I'm going to start contributing, just need to learn linux! :D12:39
brainwashfeel free to join #xubuntu-devel12:40
zukeprimealready there. Considering trying to help with *something*...documentation perhaps. Seems dead right now12:40
zukeprimebut on the inside I'm sure it's hoppin'12:41
brainwashdespite xubuntu being so popular we still need more helping hands :)12:42
elfyindeed - just don't think you need to be a coder of some sort to help - or I'd be elsewhere ;)12:42

howefieldfolks, is it possible to remove the desktop panel ?13:02
=== azeam_afk is now known as azeam
zukeprimeright click...remove13:09
elfydoesn't work for the last panel13:10
zukeprimeright click properties, then remove it that way?  never deleted all the panels before13:10
elfywhich unless howefield has changed his mind is what he's after doing :)13:10
elfyzukeprime: it really doesn't work for the last panel :)13:11
zukeprimeyou could make it transparent, min pixel width and length, then have it autohide, I suppose.  lol13:12
zukeprimeso tempted to put compton on this 14.04, but I'm resisting to test stock install13:14
howefieldsorry, was doing a bit of support there, yes elfy is correct, I want a dock and no panels.13:33

cubI was going to do a full installation on a 32 GB usb stick, booted into a 13.10 live cd, installed on the new usb stick with 10 GB / and 20 GB /home, chose the new usb as MBR. Everything seemed fine until reboot when it won't boot. No OS found or something as an error message. I thought I followed all the steps I read and discuss here earlier. Any ideas?17:05
ubottuTo have some persistent storage when using a Live CD, follow the instructions on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDPersistence17:06
cubcfhowlett, I don't want a persistent live cd. I'm going for a full proper installation on the usb.17:07
koegswhere exactly did you install grub?17:08
cubthe usb stick /sdc17:08
cubkoegs, can I check the grub on the stick just in case something went wrong? It was not installed on the HDD since this pc boots just as usual.17:16
koegscub: sudo dd bs=512 count=1 if=/dev/sda 2>/dev/null | strings17:19
koegsmaybe replace sda with sdc17:19
cubwhat supposed to happen?17:20
koegsit will give you an output if there is grub installed in the mbr17:20
cubhm it didn't17:21
cubstrange, I ran it a second time17:22
cuband got some messages17:22
cubah I missed a "=" the first time17:23

koegsit sound like a windows-bootsector17:27
cubI changed the /dev/sda to sdb as it is mounted on this pc now.17:28
cubreally? Weird. Hmm, perhaps there was something still on the stick even though I created new partitions on it during the installation?17:29
cubit was formated as FAT32 when I bought it. I removed that partition in the installation and created two ext2 partitions, one for / and one for /home17:29

daemonicusHi guys, i wanted to ask if there is a command or some setting that i can use that i can "fake" that i plug in the power cord and put it out. Some times, power consumption is higher since boot, until i plug the power source.if i unplug, there are normal readings17:31
cubperhaps I should just reformat the usb stick and try again .. bbl17:34

xubuntu828Just plugged in a random usb stick so the boot disk would work. lol20:28
xubuntu828i like the chatting while installing.20:29
xubuntu828I'm a big xubuntu fan so i don't mind having to put an usb stick in in order for the installation to continue20:30
xubuntu828I heard it was a hardware issue so i guess you cant blame the software developers. Some people, really good at pointing fingers.20:31
xubuntu828Today suddenly my network manager stopped working.20:32
xubuntu828Pls some other stuff.20:32
xubuntu828So i thought i would reinstall it all20:33
xubuntu828So I am.20:33
xubuntu828Ok, cool. it's done. Ready to boot this bad boy. Loving the xubuntu flavor. Ooohh. So what your flavor. Tell me what's your flavor. oooohhh20:35
cubkoegs, just to follow-up from earlier. When I scrapped the usb stick in gparted and created the two partitions before the installation everything worked just fine. Running it now. :)20:50

saethhow do I do that? I tried in its settings but it doesnt seem to affect workspaces23:18
saethit looks like it's in conflict with xfce23:18
brainwashkwin is a KDE program and not part of xubuntu, maybe try asking in #kde or #kubuntu23:20
