cdoublejjwhat version Open GL will Lubuntu 14.04 LTS be running?05:27
ianorlinThe same version as ubuntu05:30
cdoublejjwhat version open gl does ubuntu 14.04 use?05:34
ianorlinI think it is 3.305:41
cdoublejjdamn not even 4.0 yet ?05:44
cdoublejjeven osx upgraded ogl05:44
ianorlinat least not in open source drivers05:45
ianorlinthe binary drivers have a lot more recent stuff05:45
cdoublejjthat makes a big difference05:45
ianorlinbut the open source ones will be the ones on the disk \05:45
cdoublejjmost gamers get the nvidia drivers05:46
cdoublejjand i guess ATI/AMD05:46
cdoublejji hear talk valve help AMD better their drivers some but, in general AMD has shite software, there aren't as big as intel or nvidia05:47
ianorlinI only have intel but don't do that much gaming05:52
cdoublejjfairly sure they have helped intel up there drives, the phoronix benchmark of 14.04 shows a up to a 10FPS improvement on intel HD05:54

basketballholstein,  how do i sync the caps lock light on laptop and external keyboard21:54
basketballwhen i press caps lock on my laptop how do i get the caps light lock to show up on usb keybopard and vice versa22:09
geniiThat's actually an interesting question to try and solve.22:33
Unit193Getting the LEDs to reflect what's actually toggled in the system isn't as easy as windows, right.  Scroll lock won't even work without fixing, fresh installs.22:35
phillwhmm, mine work fine on my PB laptop... I also have keyboard LED settings installed on my task bar :)22:39
geniiCurrently on my Kubuntu the keys on the external USB make the main laptop ones light but the reverse isn't true22:41
phillwgenii: let me grab the usb keyboard (not even sure if it has LEDs :) )22:43
geniiI just find it one of these intriguing little puzzles.22:44
phillwit has22:45
phillwhello from  usb keyboard22:45
* genii waves22:48
phillwgenii: the keyboard can set itself and laptop to num-lock and cap lock. However, this shows on keyboard led settings module. If I set num-lock on with the laptop, the led on usb keyboard does not light (laptop does) however it is activated. Same as if I set on the usb keyboard.. led lights but not laptop LED.... So, I guess the answer is to add Keyboard LED settings to your task bar, as it reports correctly which ever keyboard sets caps / num lock :)22:50
geniiphillw: I'll add that to my little black book of notes :)22:51
phillwafaik the led monitor actually checks what the system is using, not which keyboard set it :P22:51
phillwI think it is new for 14.04 (i'd never seen it before)22:52
geniiI wonder if the actual lighting of the LED on the keyboard is done in the hardware of the specific keyboard. But then how could BIOS have a setting like NumLock on/off ?22:57
Unit193genii: Throw VNC into the mix, and with the right timing you can de-sync the LEDs entirely.22:59
phillwUnit193: btw, did you get the email okay?23:00
Unit193phillw: Heh, pinged as I was reading it, danke.23:00
phillwi've popped on here as bodhi is doing horrible things to an innocent alternate ISO :P23:01
