RippSteakfaceCould someone help me with trouble getting conky to start at boot? Specific to Xubuntu.00:39
RippSteakface135 people in this channel and it's always dead. Sigh.00:43
David-ARippSteakface: what have you tried? and what was the problem?00:45
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: I followed the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpConky00:48
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: For Xubuntu, no luck00:49
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Created a new start-up application with Add+, named Conky, command "conky"00:51
=== gonyere_ is now known as gonyere
=== sku1d_ is now known as sku1d
David-ARippSteakface: does conky start as you want when you type conky in a terminal?00:55
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: I type "conky &" to start it, haven't tried just "conky"00:56
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: let me try one sec00:56
RippSteakfaceyeah "conky" starts it too00:56
David-ARippSteakface: its okay either way just to test that the config is allright00:57
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: "conky" starts it as well00:57
David-ARippSteakface: is there any message in ~/.xsession-errors thay may relate to conky, right after you logged in?01:01
David-ARippSteakface: (as you can see, I have no idea what the problem might be)01:01
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: How would I check that? Noob here :)01:02
David-ARippSteakface: do you prefer looking at text files with "less" in a terminal or with the texteditor, e.g. leafpad or mousepad?01:03
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: I can do terminal01:03
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: I just want to fix it, I'm sure it's easy I just don't know why it wouldn't work according to Ubuntu's page01:04
David-ARippSteakface: less ~/.xsession-errors01:04
RippSteakfaceopenConnection: connect: No such file or directory01:05
RippSteakfacecannot connect to brltty at :001:05
RippSteakfaceScript for none started at run_im.01:05
RippSteakfaceScript for auto started at run_im.01:05
RippSteakfaceScript for default started at run_im.01:05
David-ARippSteakface: scroll forward with space and return, backward with b, go to end with >, exit with q01:05
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: That appears to be it.01:06
David-ARippSteakface: is your .xsession-errors only 5 lines? happy you, mine is 296 thousand lines.01:08
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Yeah man, it's a new install and that's all it shows me. Scrolling forward doesn't do anything.01:09
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: To be fair the .conkyrc is a custom file that I edited a bit, and it's in /home/*name*/.conkyrc01:09
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: But it runs normally just opening the terminal and typing "conky"01:10
David-ARippSteakface: it should be used when you start conky in a terminal and we have verified that it works that way01:10
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Right01:10
David-ARippSteakface: if conky fails with an error it should be in .xsession-errors. either it fails silently, or xfce hasn't even tried starting it.01:12
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Makes sense, I have it in my application autostart list as named "Conky" and command "conky" and the box is checked.01:13
David-ARippSteakface: you said "trouble getting conky to start at boot". just to verify, you want it to start at *login*, right?01:14
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Yes login :)01:14
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Is it because I need some sort of privelages?01:15
David-ARippSteakface: stupid question, but you have logged out and in after adding it to "Session and Startup"?01:15
RippSteakfacelet me try01:15
RippSteakfacewoops tabbed01:15
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Should I killall conky first?01:16
David-ARippSteakface: it should stop when you logout, but ctrl-c or kill it if you want01:16
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Nothing. It also didn't save the position and size of my IRC window :(01:18
David-ARippSteakface: I am out of ideas. If there is a checkbox by the command in "Session and Startup", it is checked, I suppose.01:21
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Yup I really have no idea. Could it be a permissions issue?01:21
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: I'm the only user but I don't know01:22
David-ARippSteakface: the process use/have the same permission as in the terminal when you try it. it's you in both cases.01:23
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: So odd. Thank you so much for trying to help me I'll just do it manually I guess.01:23
David-ARippSteakface: if you rename you .conkyrc to .conkyrc-temporarly-moved, then you should get a default config. see if that works better?01:25
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Ok01:25
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: .conkyrc has a command in it that says "total_run_times 0"01:26
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Would that effect it?01:26
David-ARippSteakface: see "man conky". man normally lets you read the text in "less", so scroll and quit like mentioned before.01:29
David-ARippSteakface: in the man page (and in less) you can search using / to enter a search pattern, and n and N to search for next and previous match.01:30
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: ok01:31
David-ARippSteakface: in man conky you can search for /configuration settings01:31
David-ARippSteakface: then scroll forward using space to see all keywords, millions of them01:32
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Hah ok01:32
David-ARippSteakface: or search for /total_run_times if you are inpatient01:32
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: Trying now01:33
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: 0 makes it run forever, that's it01:33
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: It's ok man, maybe I'll post on the forums or something - thank you so much for spending your time helping me.01:34
RippSteakfaceDavid-A: I have to go for now, thanks! :)01:34
David-ARippSteakface: so here we are scratching eachothers head. it should be fine, but isnt.01:35

Ergo_ProxyWait how do I open a folder as root?11:46
slickymasterWorkErgo_Proxy: To open the folder as root in the grapical file manager, run the following command: sudo -i11:48
slickymasterWorkErgo_Proxy: and after that thunar &11:48
Ergo_ProxyAlright, thanks slickymasterWork11:51
slickymasterWorknp11:51
koegswell, it is not recommend to use sudo with graphical apps for a reason: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo#Graphical_sudo11:56
slickymasterWorkkoegs: you're absolutely right, but since 14.04 onward gksu and/or gksudo isn't shipped anymore, hence the necessity to use sudo -i11:58
slickymasterWorkthat way you'll be launching the graphical application from a root prompt, not using sudo with graphical apps11:59

AkeifHey guys, one of my coworker keep saying to use Debian instead of Xubuntu because of : 1. Ubuntu is not fully open sourced. 2. Ubuntu is insecure.14:26
AkeifI still kinda think he might be sold out :p14:26
xubuntu720hello, i can't find in settings how to auto-login with a user at boot ?14:29
ElderDryasxubuntu720: http://askubuntu.com/questions/51086/how-do-i-enable-auto-login-in-lightdm has several options.  I just usually just edit the .conf file myself, two lines and you're done :)14:37

goneeuro./ccg_client: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_net-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory15:26

slickymasterWorkgoneeuro, sorry that's not the right link15:31
slickymasterWorkgoneeuro: see this one instead -> http://askubuntu.com/questions/143393/shared-libsdl-library-fails-to-open15:31
geniiLikely it's a 32bit binary and you have 64bit libraries, so it's looking for them in the wrong place15:32
goneeuroThats what I am guessing also. I just cant figure out the command to install the correct binarys15:33
geniigoneeuro: I'd probably do: sudo dpkg --add-architecture  i386 ...then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade    ( which should pull in all the 32 bit apps and libraries of whatever you already have installed)15:35
eugene_hey to everyone, I have couple of problems with xubuntu-desktop on ubuntu-14.04, that prevent me from using it. Maybe somebody know how to resolve this: 1. Keyboard shortcuts take long time to react, especially after login (seconds), 2. Logout doesn't se.em to work all the time, even when shortcuts start responding15:37
goneeurogenii: Tried that and it didnt pull anything down. I have all the libs installed I believe. Its just that gccg is not finding it.15:37
eugene_I did some search on this topic, and didn't find anything useful, maybe someone would have ideas how to resolve this. Thank you.15:37
goneeuroslickymasterWork: Thanks for the links, but im still stuck.15:39
geniigoneeuro: Maybe try: sudo apt-get install libsdl-net1.2 :i38615:40

tropoMobiHi! Today 2 of my computers died suddently and they won't install ANY OS no more. Can i be so unlucky or is there something going on right now?16:35
tropoMobiBoth had xubuntu 14.0416:35
drctropoMobi: You have more than 2 computers?  i.e., some of them are still working?16:37
geniiMaybe you had a power mains isue that damaged both systems at once16:38
drcthat was my next point :)16:38
tropoMobiThe other computer is 400 km away16:38
tropoMobiThe issue is same16:39
drctropoMobi: so you have 2 computers 400 km apart and both basically died at the same time?16:39
tropoMobiBoth loads Grub and i choose Ubuntu and then nothing else but power off16:39
tropoMobiNot exact time but same day16:40
tropoMobiThis is very weird16:40
drcDid you make <any> changes to the machines before thy started acting strange?16:41
tropoMobiI try to install for example win 8.1 or other Linux distro and they just hangs up at the very beginning of the instalation like loading UI16:41
tropoMobiJust normal update & upgrade from lates official xubuntos repos16:42
tropoMobiI really can't believe for bad luck but maybe i should...16:43
tropoMobiI just wanted info this if there comes more broken computers16:43
drcI just re-installed and updated this machine about an hour ago, so (for me) they systems works fine.16:44
tropoMobiI ran hdd test and memtest from both and they were ok16:45
drcI'd concentrate on what happened to the first machne (I'm guessing whatever it was also affected the second).16:45
tropoMobiIt's very weird because the hardware is damaged some how now16:46
starratsbeen reading this back and forth, there's a 'bug' in one of the machines16:48
drcIf you are sure the hardware in damaged, then I'd say replace the damaged hardware and start over.  If it is truely damaged, no tinkering will fix it.16:48
drcstarrats: are you talking about tropoMobi's problem?16:49
starratsespecially if the comps are 400 clicks away from each other.16:49
starratsyes16:49
drcand that's klicks...clicks are for mice :)16:50
starratsold Army term click = kilometer16:50
drcI agree...my guess is whatever happened to the first machine he/they/gremlins also did to the second.16:50
drcstarrats: I know, I spent 22 years there :)16:51
starratslol, ok16:51
drctroposphere: Tell us exactly what you/someone did that led to the problem (install, update apps, upgrade...whatever)16:51
starratsdrc could the disc he used be corrupted some how, to me that's the gist of it16:52
troposphereok, both had team viewer because the other cpu is 400 km as i said and my mother uses it16:52
tropospherevery basic installation in both16:53
tropospherei rw16:53
drcback in ~2 minutes...dog wants outside.16:53
troposphereupdates and cobfiguration was also defaults from default repos16:53
troposphereokies :)16:54
troposphereboth computers are about 6 years old so atleast i didn't lose so much money... i also have 2 dedicated servers with Ubuntu server 14.04 but they are different story.16:55
troposphereupdated and rebooted normally today those 2 dedicateds. Those 2 computers died on the fly... First one was at Grub menu today when i switched the monitor on and the other died meanwhile using Chromium16:59
troposphereI leave this client here and wish that this will not happend to anybody else. Now i start to watch a movie. :)17:06

xanguaHi, how can I restore the notifications position or reset the configuratin? even when I have slected notifications popups to appear in the upper right corner they appear kind of in the middle http://i.imgur.com/UkOE6cN.png18:43
drcxangua: Works fine for me (big help I know)...is there anything special about your display...effects, dual screen, etc?18:48
xanguaIt was working fine this morning until  I started to try themes, set up conky and plank dock18:49
drcxangua: I'd set the display back to the defaults then make one change at a time until you find the problem (unless someone has an answer for you now)18:50
drcThat's assuming that setting it back to defaults cures the problem.18:51
cavacI installed xscreensaver and removed light-locker in a new 14.04 install. Clicking "Lock screen" in the Action Buttons applet locks the screen, but suspending the laptop does not. Any guesses on how to fix this?18:51
cavacPower Manager/Extended has the "Lock screen on hibernate/suspend" checked.18:53
drccavac: Well that answers the question I was typing.18:53
xanguaI just played with the notifications position and restored it to the upper right, this was weird18:54
cavacI'm not sure how Xubuntu does suspend. Upstart script?18:55
drcxangua: gremlins :)18:55
cavacAh, found it!19:10
cavacIn addition to checking the lock screen checkbox in Power Manager/Extended you *also* have to go to "Session and Startup/Advanced" and under "Shutdown" check "Lock screen before sleep".19:11
cavacSomehow it doesn't make sense that you have to active the option in two completly different Settings dialogs to do essentially the same thing.19:14
cavacHere's the link to the instructions i followed: http://askubuntu.com/questions/259190/xubuntu-no-password-request-after-suspension19:15

David-A-KenobiI think Easytag has better user interface than Exfalso. but I have experienced that Easytag may update files in a dir I visited without the intention to actually change any tags there.19:52
David-A-KenobiKekai: I don't remember the details, but maybe it was easytag decided by itself to copy ver1 tags to ver2 tags on files that did not have ver2 tags.19:55

waldirHi, I'm running 12.04 but the update manager isn't showing me the notice to upgrade to 14.04 ... is there something I need to set manually?20:33
drcIIRC, it will when 14.04.1 is released, not 14.04 itself20:34
geniiYes20:34
waldiroh, really? why?20:34
drcI suspect that they want to ensure any remaining problems are ironed out before updating the LTS/stable release.20:37
drcand there are <always> problems :)20:37
waldirlol even after the LTS :P20:38
waldirbut I thought that was the point of the RCs...20:38

waldirbesides, in my other laptop I did get prompted to upgrade (although I think it told me to upgrade to 13.10, but ended up actually upgrading all the way to 14.04.. at least that's what lsb_release says20:39
drcThe problem is that the pool of testers (and their hardware) at all stages is small...no way catch <everything>...after a release there are always problems no one even thought of.20:39

drcI have no idea what a "full numex" is, but did you also change the Window Manager to numex?20:43

waldirdrc: I'm saying this because of this quote: "Upgrades between LTS releases are not enabled by default until the first point release" from here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/110477/20:44

Dry_Lipsvladimir_ you're referring to the actual buttons in the VLC program?21:01

starratscool adrenaline_21:50
starratsI have had no trouble with the 'switcher', 3 of my workspaces include hexchat/weechat, firefox, thunderbird, the 4th I leave open fo other apps or terminal.21:52
starratslearn this from the old gang i hung out with back in the my early days of linux.21:53
adrenaline_Ya I have 3 workspaces dedicated for work then my fourth is dedicated for home. Works out pretty good.21:54
starratsIf I didn't have 'workspaces' then i probably wouldn't be using Linux that much.21:57
eegoreis there an apt command to remove older versions of the kernal?22:36
eegoreboot is full and I can no longer update22:37
adrenaline_I always run a cli command to do that like if this is an old kernel vmlinuz-3.2.0-54-generic I would do a sudo rm -rf *.54-* and it will take out all of the kernels and maps etc that are that have that number in the name22:41
adrenaline_You may need to do it to a few kernels if you have a lot22:41
adrenaline_sorry it isn't *.54-* it is *-54-* and it works I just tested it as I actually do have that kernel22:43
adrenaline_Then do a df -h to see how much space you have now.22:44
adrenaline_do you have any questions?22:45
adrenaline_eegore,22:45
eegoreI was thinking of trying apt-get autoremove22:47
adrenaline_try it22:48
eegoreLooks like that is working22:48
adrenaline_I do mine manually is why I scripted it, but if that works too go for it22:48
adrenaline_Looks like autoremove takes all of them out but two. I wonder if there are options to how many you can keep22:49
adrenaline_actually it looks like autoremove only removes headers22:51
adrenaline_maybe not I am testing it now22:52
adrenaline_It is Erroring out like crazy22:52
David-Aeegore: see if Computer Janitor (in the software center) has an option to remove old kernels or set a limit how many to keep.22:53
eegoreThis is an ultra book UX71A, biggest hard drive I can get for it is 256 GB22:54
adrenaline_Ya auto remove didn't clean it up as good as I do manually22:54
David-Aeegore: I think the sudo rm think 1) requires a preceeding cd /boot and 2) does not save as much space as actually un-installing the kernels.22:54
eegoreand it is smaller than some USB stcks22:54
eegoreI have to keep the software in it as minimal as possible22:55
adrenaline_You are right you do have to cd /boot but it does remove all of the kernels you specify plus the maps and configs so It does create lots of disk space22:55
eegorethe drive itself is about the physical size of 5 postage stamps end to end22:56
adrenaline_I have to use it a lot because my boot is 229M and it fills up about every 3 months or so I go ahead and delete about 5 kernels and keep about 3 to be save22:56
adrenaline_If cd /boot and ls you will see what I am talking about22:57
adrenaline_if you rm -rf *-55-* it will delete any directory of fill with -55- in the name.22:58
eegorethe i7 cpu, memory and mobo take up only a third of the laptop22:58
eegorethe rest is all battery22:59
eegoreand weighs only pond and three quarters22:59
David-Aeegore: forget my comment about Janitor. it seems it is not available for recent ubuntus.23:02
eegoreI am running an encrypted drive as well as an encrypted home directory23:03
starratsjust got this link on the xuvbuntu page on FaceBook should we as Linux usrs be concerned or just bow down and start using chrfome/chromium?    http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/flash-linux-future.html23:54
