n-iCewould you say lubuntu is the lighter desktop for Ubuntu out there?01:02
Unit193Unless you build from the core, yep.01:02
n-iCelighter than xubuntu?01:03
oneWhere is the per window kbd layout changed?01:47
vrr_has anyone got lubuntu running on an asus UX31A?01:54
holsteinone: not sure about that.. might have to send them somehow in a script when you change to the windows in question01:54
holsteinvrr_: it'll be more about the chips in there01:54
holsteinvrr_: likely some graphics related problem for you? wifi? related to safe boot?01:55
vrr_no problems just trying to see if the install will be hassle free01:55
holsteinvrr_: try it live01:56
vrr_im downloading the 14.04 right as we speak01:56
holsteinvrr_: thats what the live CD's are for... you get to see how the operating system is, first hand, on your actual hardware, without installing01:56
holsteinvrr_: 14.04 *should* be fine, and i do suggest you try it, but, keep in mind, its not officially released yet01:57
vrr_right now im running arch but it keeps breaking with updates and im tired of fixing them01:58
vrr_and i've heard lubuntu does wonders to battery life01:58
holsteinvrr_: it really shouldnt01:59
holsteinvrr_: its the same kernel.. and, typically, moving to linux *decreases* battery life02:00
ianorlindesktopbut compared to arch?02:00
holsteinthe question is, why?.. and that is due to hardware support02:00
vrr_^ in compairson to arch02:00
ianorlindesktopI still get a few hours battery life out of my laptop although it has a massive battery02:01
holsteinshould be similar to arch as well02:01
holsteinarch would have a newer kernel..02:01
ianorlindesktopmight just be lxde uses less cpu than other Desktop enviornemnts02:01
ianorlindesktopor will in the future02:02
oneholstein: It is a gnome thing.02:02
holsteinits not usually battery life that is noticable02:02
holsteinbut, im sure it wont be worse...02:02
ianorlindesktopturning screen brightness down helps more02:02
holsteinone: why not just use gnome, then?02:02
holsteinyup... screen brightness is the killer for my rig..02:02
vrr_is less of a memory ho02:03
* ianorlindesktop thinks one was saying gnome uses lots of battery02:03
ianorlindesktopI think cpu is more important for power02:03
holsteinsure.. but the "memory" is using power.. its not like the power goes off if you have a few free mb's02:03
vrr_also lxde idles about 1%-2% cpu02:03
holsteini mean, less resource use could and likely does result in less use of battery, but, id be surprised if you'd notice02:03
holsteinstill.. whats that equate to in power savings?02:04
holsteinthe cps is up.. and powered up.. and at a lower step.. anyways, this is probably more suited for a hardware channel02:04
ianorlindesktopon desktops it could work out to power savings if you take out a graphics card and use integrated graphics02:04
holsteini dong think lubuntu will be worse on power, and its likely one of the best.. but folks tend to use it becuase its light.. not the battery savings02:04
vrr_k, just finished the dd im going in.02:08
bluesabre0any lubuntu-devs about?03:35

bluesabre0please let me know if you have any questions03:38
oneHow does one get a list of all kernel options?03:40
holsteinone: the default kernel just is what it is.. you'd have to build your own.. i would start with kernel.org03:41
ubottuThe core of Ubuntu is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, and if you need to troubleshoot issues, you can try a !Mainline kernel instead, but if you insist, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile (see also !Stages)03:41
ubottuThe Ubuntu Kernel gets updated in stages.  If you have the updated kernel, but do not have the corresponding restricted modules, you may be leaving yourself with no X when you reboot.  If you have compiled binary versions of your video driver, eg from the nVidia site, you will need to recompile them for the new kernel.  This is normal, and not a bug.03:41
holsteinhmmm.. id look at a custom compiling kernel guide03:42
oneholstein: I am talking about boot options.03:45
onewhat is the manpage called for kernel?03:46
holsteinone: kms?03:52
oneholstein: why https?04:01
holsteinone: ?04:02
holsteinone: i just searched kernel mode settings and got that to share.. its relevant, if thats what you are looking for04:02
oneholstein: no https04:21
oneholstein: is there a corresponding manpage?04:21

koellthanks guys12:17
loggghaving odd problems, maybe hardware related?  Using Lubuntu 13.10, Windows 7 dual boot.  GRUB 2 should have a countdown timer, but sometimes does not.  While booting, Linux sometimes finds errors on the hard drive:14:31
logggMar 25 09:23:50 diamond kernel: [  303.748470] EXT4-fs (sda6): error count: 4 Mar 25 09:23:50 diamond kernel: [  303.748496] EXT4-fs (sda6): initial error at 1395685407: ext4_find_entry:1309: inode 664854 Mar 25 09:23:50 diamond kernel: [  303.748505] EXT4-fs (sda6): last error at 1395689778: ext4_remount:4755: inode 66485414:31
holsteini would start with a hard drive test14:31
holsteingrub should be static.. check its config14:31
ubottuGRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub214:31
holsteinif its changing at boot, who knows what is going on there.. did you mess with it? or manually install it?14:32
logggIf I Ignore these errors, Linux finishes booting.  I booted a FreeDOS USB stick and ran WD's official test software, and it said the hard drive was fine.14:32
holsteinhow long did the test take? i like smart tests that take hours.. but, its likely OK if that test says so14:33
logggWD software is dlgdiag5.exe.  Did the quick test, took about 2 minutes.14:33
holsteini would maybe do a file system check, but, yes.. those messages may be just fine to ignore14:33
holsteini would do the normal exclusion tests.. try live CD's.. test the hardware..14:34
logggThe next problem I saw, for the first tiem yesterday, was with USB flash drives.  Says all my flash drives are read only.14:34
holsteinsearch for and apply upgrades.. look for anything that im doing unique from the default setup, and explore14:34
holsteinloggg: what format are the drives? you can have permissions issues there14:35
logggError creating mount point '/media/u/A219-3D7B': Read-only file system.  Most of them are FAT.  Tried monting them on another computer, and they all worked fine.14:36
holsteinloggg: you may not have permission, as i suggested, for that user to create the mountpoint14:36
ubottumount is used to attach devices to directories. See also https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount14:36
holsteini would try from the commandline as sudo, and rule out the issues being with the stick or not14:37
holsteinif you are testing them on other machines, then you know they work.. if you are testing them on other linux machines, then you know they work there.. so, that leaves motherboard, which could be causing the other errors, and your users config, as well as your operating syste14:37
holsteinone easy test.. run a live CD on the hardware, plug in a USB stick14:38
holsteinthis removes your user, and your OS from the equation.. when i say "live CD", i mean the live media without installing.. that can be USB or whatever14:38
logggHad no problem using flash drives, until yesterday. Yeah, all these odd problems seem to point to hardware issues.  So...  I got out an air hose and blew out all the dust.  Didn't change.  Opened the computer up and reseated the memory and hard drive connections.  Still no change.14:38
logggRemembering the capacitor plague from about 10 years back, I also looked at the capacitors. They all look fine, no bulging tops, no leaks from the base.14:40
holsteinif a live CD works "fine" on the hardware, that can be telling14:40
logggHmm, yes, I'll try that next.  I have a Puppy Linux CD handy14:41
logggchecking /var/log/syslog...  Only 3 reports of EXT4 errors, and the position is not the same:  Initial error at 1394961716 on Mar 16, 1395591012 on Mar 23, and 1395685407 pn Mar 25 (today).14:48
logggOh yes, seems Ubuntu's memtest86+ is bugged again.  Got that error about there not being enough low RAM when I tried that.14:49
vn151502510loggg: you should run a live CD, open GParted, use Check function with /dev/sda614:52
logggOn my system, sda6 is /,  sda5 is swap, sda7 is /home, sda1 is Windows 7, sda2 is FreeDOS.  ok, I'm off to try the live CD.  I'll get back on here on another computer shortly.14:58
loggg_huh, when I put the Puppy Linux CD in, Lubuntu gave me the same read only error as I got for the USB sticks.  But, the CD is supposed to be read-only.  Booting Puppy now...15:03
loggg_USB flash drive works fine under Puppy Linux.  Trying Gparted next...15:05
vn151502510it's better having some errors15:08
vn151502510or not15:08
loggg_gparted found and fixed a bunch of error, like this one: Pass 3: Checking directory connectivity '..' in /usr/src/linux-headers-3.11.0-18-generic/include/config/leds/pca9532 (664772) is <The NULL inode> (0), should be /usr/src/linux-headers-3.11.0-18-generic/include/config/leds (664755). Fix? yes15:17
vn151502510it seems harddisk wasnot turned off properly, or maybe out of date15:19
loggg_maybe that was it.  This time, GRUB had the countdown.  Lubuntu did a disk check, and found no errors.  Trying a USB flash drive now...15:21
loggg_Yes, it is reading the flash drive fine now.15:22
pmatulisanyone running 14.04?  any bumps?15:23
loggg_Thanks vn1515... guess you already left.  I wonder though.  How did / get corrupted to start with?  Should the OS be able to fsck the / partition and fix it?15:31
