WikibearI use Xubuntu on my Odroid and have HDMI problems. Seems that the mali driver is ok. I have two odroids on different TVs with same issue. If i unplug HDMI connector and replug then the screen wants blank and xserver won't come back. xrandr say that my tv is connected to the odroid via HDMI. I tryed so many thinks out. This issue happens after some updates and kernel updates. Any ideas?10:19

svetlanacheck player settings or screensaver settings to disable screensaver11:14
svetlanahow do i suspend from commandline please, i don't have gnome running11:15
WikibearThere are many issues with sound and HDMI... I tested it all. It's recommend to install the latest graphic drivers11:16

EugeneBanditWikibear: window decorations preference menu ?12:13
Guest53847when i install a new package for example vlc it automatically becomes default, why? can i stop that?12:13
cfhowlettGuest53847 nope.  VLC doesn't become the default media player unless you tell it to12:14
Guest53847cfhowlett, i just tested in livecd. and it's not only vlc. If i install for example gtkpod which has a dependancy of ajunda (i cant remember the exact name) it becomes default file manager12:15
cfhowlettGuest53847 liveCD?  pretty sure native install has a different behavior pattern.  but you can always set file properties: open with ...12:17
Guest53847well i dont wanna do that everytime i install something12:20

Wikibearkilled now xfe4 home folder now the bars are not black but buttons are missing13:03
Dragon64log out and back in? if so, try switching themes and then swithcing back13:05
cfhowlettWikibear extreme measure but ... delete /Home/.config/xfce413:07
cfhowlettWikibear logout/login and you should see defaults13:07
Wikibearjip i have deleted13:23
Wikibearbut that wont work13:23
Wikibearno buttons close maximize minimize13:23
GridCubeWikibear, press alt-f2 and type xfwm4 --replace13:25
Wikibearwont work13:26
Wikibeari've tryed this and the desktop reset short but its still all the same13:27
GridCubeWikibear, press the windows key and T, in the terminal type sudo apt-get update and the sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop13:28

Wikibearyes will do13:43
Wikibearchromium has buttons...13:43
Wikibearbut not terminal window13:43
Wikibearwill send13:43
Dragon64so, chromium can use its own widget set instead of the system default.13:50
Dragon64so that might explain that, one sec13:51
Dragon64so if you go to settings > window manager, you should be able to change the widget style. Try a couple different ones and see if the widgets re-appear13:52
Wikibearno dont came up choose another theme and its still the same13:54
Dragon64hmm wow something really broken. well lets find out if this is a system or user account issue. Can you create a new user and login to that account? If its particular to the first user account it should be fine. if not its probly a systemwide issue13:56
Wikibearrgr stby13:56
Wikibearhow can i change the user?14:03
Dragon64did you add a new one? you should be able to logout and log in as the new user14:03

Wikibeari think best way is to kill installation and make a complete new one...14:11
Wikibearthanks dragon14:12
Wikibearotherwise can i deinstall x complete and reinstall?14:14
Dragon64you can sudo apt-get purge xfce4* from the command line and then reinstall14:14

I tried every single possible solution to compile it but all of them leads me to error when trying to {make}/compile alsa driver :/17:43
Hedgeworkxubuntu122: there's a gui printer setup in your control panel try that first17:43
Hedgeworkxubuntu122: if it doesn't work I'll show you alternatives17:44
Hedgeworkxubuntu751: okay, so can we back up and make sure you really need custom alsa?17:45
Hedgeworkcould be an XY problem17:45
xubuntu751Hedgework: I think so because last time I installed xubuntu only custom alsa resolved the problem17:46
HedgeworkRight, but there may be an easier solution now.17:47
Hedgeworkthings change17:47
Hedgeworktalking to work people bbiab17:47
xubuntu122ok i'm stupid,,,where's control panel?17:49

kingpluspluspleaase how do i get back the volume and network icon back in status bar at the top right hand corner?22:08
xanguakingplusplus: did you manually remove them?22:10
kingplusplusxangua, i think i did (not sure)22:10
T60Does anyone here know how to change the background in lightdm? I changed the config file and set background = to my file location, but for some reason, the login backgorund only changed for the guest user and not me.22:11
xanguaIf you did, just add the indicator to your panel as any other widget kingplusplus22:11
kingplusplusits not found in preference when i rightclick22:11
Unit193T60: Because it's using the accountservice background as set by xfdesktop.22:11
T60Unit193: how does one stop that22:12
xanguaIndicator menu I believe is called22:12
ubottuUbuntu bug 1306362 in lightdm-gtk-greeter (Ubuntu) "AccountsService conflicts with configured logon background" [Undecided,Confirmed]22:13
kingplusplusxangua, the indicator is missing22:15
T60Unit193: I tried some of the fixes like disabling the guest account and doing chmod, but none of them worked.22:16
Unit193T60: No, but it'll be fixed in the next release.22:16
T60Unit193: well that's a shame :/22:16
T60Also I do have another problem, I cannot restart Xubuntu, or else it'll lead me to a permanent black screen (until I force shut down). I think this has something to do with me adding "nomodeset" in grub. Shutdown even breaks every once in a while as well. Even though I changed the grub file and did update-grub, I still have to do a hard shut down, press e in grub, scroll all the way down and change to back to nomodeset, even though I've changed it before.22:19
ochosiT60: wait, how is fixing something in the next release a shame?22:20
Unit193What are you editing in order to change the boot option in grub?22:20
Unit193ochosi: That it's not going to be fixed in this one.22:20
T60ochosi: I was saying it's a shame b/c I cannot do anything about it.22:20
ochosibut it's always going to be fixed in the next release :>22:20
ochosiif there is a bug/missing feature22:20
ochosiactually it has been like that for ages22:20
ochosibasically since the feature was introduced, which was at least two or three releases ago22:21
T60Unit193: I run "sudo nano /etc/default/grub" then change one of the lines to "nomodeset"22:21
ochosi(also, using the daily PPA is a workaround, at your own risk)22:22
Unit193GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT is the one to change, then check if it matches  /boot/grub/grub.cfg22:22
T60Wait, I did the first part, I never even saw the second part before. I'll fix that right now...22:22
T60Unit193: grub.cfg matches with the changes that I have made22:24
Unit193T60: So, if the boot option doesn't match this, you have grub installed from another distribution, don't you? :)22:25
T60Wait, I said it does match?22:25
Unit193T60: You said grub.cfg matches /etc/default/grub, which does not match the boot up screen.22:26
T60It matches sometimes, then other times I have to go in and change it myself, but I cannot possibly have another grub installed because I formatted my HDD getting rid of Arch forever. Arch brings bad memories...22:27
T60Unit193: or did I miss something here? Another weird thing that happens is that this happens to me when I log out and log back in: http://i.ytimg.com/vi/Q1bg9qP_qic/maxresdefault.jpg22:31
Unit193I'd call that an interesting one.22:32
T60and I don't mean that image shows up haha, I mean my display goes through color distortion.22:33
Unit193Yeah, I got that part. :P22:34
T60haha yeah22:34
T60Also my computer is almost 9 years old if that counts for anything.22:35
Unit193I've had issues with my 82845G/GL, but a little different than that.22:37
T60Interesting, have you fixed all the issues though?22:37
Unit193Forced it in true color, disabled xfwm compositor, etc. at least fixed the majority of them.22:38
T60Dang, I'm going to try and test something brb22:39
T60Unit193: I'm back and I think I know the issue.23:29
