jesse__anyway, I have an idea01:05
jesse__Does anyone know how to use xubuntu?01:06
jesse__Very general question, I know, but I need to know how to use this thing...01:07
Unit193No, nobody around the world has ever figured out how to use it. ;)01:07
jesse__I'm watching a youtube vid on how to use irssi.01:08
jesse__The guy on youtube seems legit...01:08
jesse__Probably too legit to quit.01:08
jesse__Sooo, #xubuntu is pretty sparse.01:09
jesse__Cool, thanks Unit193.01:10
Unit193There's a few more good ones too if you needed.01:10
Unit193http://niklas.laxstrom.name/page/eng/irssi if you plan to have tons of channels.  Also, I recommend setting up CertFP or SASL to auth to the server.01:11
Unit193http://esaurito.net/blog/posts/2008/11/irssi_notify/ for notifications.  I use a modified version myself.01:12
jesse__Thanks again unit. New to this, so it helps.01:15
Unit193Sure.  While I greatly like irssi, there's more user friendly clients out there.01:16
Unit193!tab | Also, FYI01:16
ubottuAlso, FYI: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.01:16
jesse__The less friendly the better.01:17
jesse__I would say I'm a masochist.01:17
Unit193w3m for internet, alpine for email, newsbeuter for rss, irssi for IRC, bitlbee or maybe finch for IM, etc, etc.01:18
benyaminhello... can anyone help me? i have a problem with nvidia that cause my start up screen change into a such kind of terminal and that make me weird looking at it. i have try fixing on grub and also adding framebuffer=y but still, not working well, only shutdown splash back to normal.. can anyone help? i really happy if its.. thanks allot!02:02
ObrienDave!crosspost | benyamin02:03
ubottubenyamin: 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.02:03
benyaminoh okay..02:04
benyamini'll ask on ubuntu chanel only.02:05
xubuntu675i downloaded xubuntu 14.04 on my chromebook and now the screen keeps blacking out03:58
xubuntu675it wont turn on unless i shut it down and restart it again03:58
ObrienDavewhen does it black out?03:59
xubuntu675just randomly when im on it04:00
ObrienDavehmm, i don't know anything about chromebooks. try screensaver or power settings04:01
Unit193And if not there, nomodeset.04:01
ubottuA common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter04:02
xubuntu675i dont boot directly into xfce, first i go into the chromeos shell and type a command to start xubuntu04:03

arpad2hello, I don't know why , but from time to time, 2-3 times a week the system doesn't accept input from the keyboard and the main menu button in the panel stops to work, including the restart or turn off button, so I can only shutdown the system from terminal and restart again, then the system behaves normally10:51
ObrienDavehave you tried the REISUB key combo?10:53
arpad2ObrienDave: I don't know what isv REISUB10:54
ObrienDaveit's a combination of keys that resets and reboots the system. look it up for more info.10:55
arpad2ok, even if I find it, the reoccurring unresponsive system remains10:56
ObrienDavebasically hold right-alt and SysRq keys and then R-E-I-S-U-B a few seconds apart. that flushes disk cache and other things and reboots10:57
arpad21ObrienDave: yes, this combination restarted the system, though the input from the keyboard was accepted11:03
arpad21what is the command in terminal for a restart?11:03
ObrienDavenot sure11:07

sorinelloHello. I have 2 questions about the XFCE interface settings. First is.. how do I configure XFCE so that if I click on the Firefox shortcut icon (manually added to panel) NOT to open another Firefox instance. This is also the same for all my other apps from the panel11:25
ObrienDavesorinello, not sure if you can do that11:29
sorinelloObrienDave: thanks. Also, is there a setting to allow moving the running apps in the panel ? Reorder them11:31
ObrienDavesorinello, you can move running apps to other workspaces, i have 20 of them LOL11:32
sorinelloI have only one workspace, and I just want to reorder them on the taskbar11:32
ObrienDaveright click on the taskbar, add items11:33
ObrienDaveat the bottom you find workplace switcher, add that to your taskbar11:34
ObrienDaveright click on the taskbar,panel, add items11:34
sorinelloObrienDave, : but I don't want more workspaces. I just want to reorder the taskbar (running apps) on my workspace11:35
ObrienDavehmm, good question, don't know, haven't tried. LOL i like the 20 workspaces11:36
ObrienDavedoes not seem like you can reorder taskbar tabs11:38
ObrienDavenope, they stay in alphabetical order, left to right11:39
knomeright-click the panel, select panel -> panel preferences...11:41
sorinellotoo bad :(11:41
knomethen go to the items tab, and select "window buttons"11:41
knomethen click the properties icon (the cogwheel)11:41
knomein that dialog, change the sorting order to "none, allow drag-and-drop"11:41
sorinelloindeed it works. thanks knome !11:42
ObrienDaveooooooooo, learned something new! thanks knome11:43
knomesorinello, no problem11:43
knomeObrienDave, see how "you can't do it" is a bad answer if the real answer is "i don't know" ?11:43
sorinelloknome, : do you also have an answer for my first question ?11:44
ObrienDavei never said "can't" i said "does not seem"11:44
knomesorinello, that's something the apps must handle themself11:46
sorinellobecause for example in Unity, it you click on Firefox icon, you won't have a new Firefox instance started11:46
knomethe xfce panel doesn't support such launchers by default. you'll either have to use a command for the app that makes sure a new window isn't opened, or write a launcher script that handles checking if the app is running and instead of running a new instance, just changes to the old one11:49
koegsthere was some sort of panel-item for that11:51
knomepotentially some non-default applet11:52
koegsknome: yes, but his might be it: http://www.webupd8.org/2013/03/dockbarx-available-as-xfce-panel-plugin.html11:53

goneeurois there an easy way to upgrade libreoffice to 4.3?13:58
goneeurowithout reinstalling it I mean. I am currently on
knomegoneeuro, if it's not in the repositories, not really14:04
knomeand in most cases it's not worth it anyway (unless you really really need a new feature)14:04
goneeuroknome: no I am just an update junky. I always update when I see a new version.14:06
goneeuroThanks though.14:06
goneeuroI am not in the mood to reinstall so I guess Ill just wait for now.14:06
knomeyou would not only have to reinstall, you'd have to do a manual install that has very different consequences than a regular update from the repositories14:08

shay_shayi need to resolve this first. i think those autoremove packages are from when i installed libreoffice-gtk and then installed libreoffice-gnome on top18:00
GridCubeshay_shay, you can do sudo apt-get purge ubuntu-software-center, but make sure before accepting the unistall that you dont delete apt-get18:00

MigilenikHey guys20:04
Migileniki wanted to ask20:04
MigilenikXubuntu project seem to be very active, but how about xfce itself?20:04
Migilenikthere are no news for years on the website, something news sometimes appears at the forum, but it seems like its not from active development20:05
Migilenikdoes anyone have any idea what is really going on with xfce ?20:05
Unit193Migilenik: You can see here: http://git.xfce.org that it still exists, and 4.11 (development releases) have been released recently, but yeah it's not the most active one around, but still activly develped nevertheless.20:07
MigilenikUnit193: im not a developer or hardcoder so maybe stupid question: can those commits be just sort of automatic thing?20:18
Unit193The translations yes, but not the actual commits.  https://mail.xfce.org/pipermail/xfce4-dev/2014-July/thread.html is the mailing list.20:20
MigilenikUnit193: thanks man, i subscribed to dev mailing list already20:25
Migileniklooks like there is a lot of interesting info, thanks again20:25
Migileniktake care ;)20:25
svetlanaMounted a USB, removed without unmounting, its contents remained on the computer?21:18
David-Asvetlana: filesystems usually caches read blocks in unused ram. if the ram was not needed for something else, and you only look at dirs or files you have looked at before while the usb was connected, it may not need to access the actual device and discover it is gone.21:23
svetlanaOkay, thanks21:27
