Tim-xubuntu97wHey, I just updated from XUbuntu 13.10 to 14.04, and now my XFCE desktop doesn't have any panels, and whenever I try to browse files I get a an 'Failed to execute default File Manager : Failed to execute child process "thunar" (no such file or directory)' error. Any ideas?01:56
holsteinTim-xubuntu97w: i would tty or terminal and run "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" and share any errors.. make sure you are up to date, and actually running 14.0401:57
Ca3sarI used a minimal CD to try and install Xubuntu on my Macbook Pro and now when I boot I just get a text command line.01:58
Tim-xubuntu97wThanks, I'll try the dist upgrade.01:58
holsteinTim-xubuntu97w: then, i would try the guest account... if all is well in the guest account, then its likely the users config is bad01:58
Tim-xubuntu97wupdate gave no errors.01:58
Tim-xubuntu97wYeah, I set up a new 'test' user, thinking that was the issue, but it was borked as well01:59
holsteinTim-xubuntu97w: then, i would try the live CD for 14.04, and see that it supports the hardware well, and do a backup of my data from it, and consider just fresh installing01:59
Ca3sarI used a minimal CD to try and install Xubuntu on my Macbook Pro and now when I boot I just get a text command line.01:59
holsteinCa3sar: the minimal *is* just command line01:59
Ca3sarohhhhh... what do i do to get the normal desktop then?01:59
Tim-xubuntu97wif 14.04 is the problem, is there an easy way to roll back? (I suspect not)02:00
holsteinCa3sar: you can use a "normal" desktop installation iso.. or, see that you are connected to the internet and run "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop02:00
holsteinTim-xubuntu97w: its not02:00
holsteinTim-xubuntu97w: you cant roll back.. but, i really dont think 14.04 is the problem..02:01
Tim-xubuntu97wYep. when I SSH in, it shows I'm in 14.04.102:01
Tim-xubuntu97wI would think not.02:01
holsteinTim-xubuntu97w: you should have your data backed up regardless, since all hard drives fail.. i would do that prior to anything else.. then, i would consider reinstallation the "easy" way..02:01
Tim-xubuntu97wIt very well could be related that I'm running headless and getting in via XRDP.02:01
Ca3sarholstein: thanks I think it's working. I'll consult if I have any more issues02:02
holsteinTim-xubuntu97w: yes.. that could *all* be related. i would get native on the machine..02:02
Tim-xubuntu97wYeah, I've no data on teh machine, it's just a print server, and a place for me to fool around on.02:02
Tim-xubuntu97wI'll pull the machine and see if I run into issues 'native'. I hadn't heard that term before, I like it. :)02:02
Tim-xubuntu97wThanks for the help guys.02:03
holsteinTim-xubuntu97w: then, try #ubuntu or the mailing list if you want to fool around and see what you have broken upgrading. otherwise, reinstallation should be the quickest02:03
Tim-xubuntu97wI think so. I just gotta get the printer shared the same..02:03
Tim-xubuntu97wThanks again for your insight!02:04
holsteini would probalby just do a headless, x-less command line machine for a printserver..02:04
Tim-xubuntu97wI would too, but I want a desktop to fool around on as well. The samba/cups server is still running fine.02:05
holsteinyou can "fool around" with live CD's. and VM's02:06
holsteini say, set up the server for the task, and use live CD's to mess around.. or, dual boot.. or be prepared for your server to be broken02:07
Tim-xubuntu97wtrue.. true.. I'm gonna try re-running the X11RDP-o-Matic script I got from scarygliders.02:07
Tim-xubuntu97wYou guys have a good night, thanks again for your help.02:07
holsteinthat script could be broken in 14.04.. or not support 14.0402:07
holsteinor, just be broken since the upgrade02:07
Tim-xubuntu97wIt's not.. but it wasn't in 13.10 either. :)02:08
holsteini mean, its not a xubuntu script.. its not something that shipped with either02:08
holsteinplug in a monitor, test.. reduce variables.. right now, you are testing many things at once..02:08
Ca3sarcan i enable multitouch on my macbook with xubuntu? if i touch the trackpad with mutiple fingers the mouse will not move02:29
holsteinCa3sar: nothing about xubuntu or ubuntu or linux prevents apple from providing you support for multitouch in linux/xubuntu02:30
holsteinCa3sar: if its not working "out of the box" it may take some configuration.. or, it may just not work02:30
holsteinyou can reference..02:31

Ca3sarOh okay02:31
Ca3sarthe task bar at the top keeps disappearing when i hover over it, and reappears when my mouse goes below the middle of the screen02:51
holsteinCa3sar: in XFCE? you have a panel at the top that is hiding?02:51
Ca3sarholstein: yes02:52
Ca3sarholstein: and sorry I'm very new here02:52
holsteinCa3sar: *if* thats the case, you can right click it, go into settings and set it to not auto hide02:52
Ca3sarholstein: auto hide is unchecked02:53
holsteinCa3sar: then, its like not autohiding then02:53
holsteinCa3sar: could be virtual resolution making the screen "scroll"..02:54
holsteinCa3sar: try setting the screen resolution differently and test for that02:54
Ca3sarit only goes away when the mouse touches it02:54
holsteinCa3sar: i dont understand02:54
holsteinCa3sar: nothing should go away when the mouse touches it..02:54
holsteinCa3sar: please try and elaborate and share a screenshot02:56

holsteinCa3sar: i would disable hiding..03:02
Ca3sarhiding isn't on?03:02
holsteinCa3sar: you can try in the guest account. you can remove the config for the panel.. you can remove the *entire* panel.. and make a new one that is not hiding.. there are many ways to deal with it03:02
holsteinCa3sar: the panel *is* hiding..03:03
holsteinCa3sar: dont worry with what tick boxes are checked.. just keep trying things til it works..03:03
holsteinCa3sar: right click.. add another panel.. test it..03:03
holsteinlogout, login using the xfce session and not the xubuntu session03:03
holsteintry the guest account..03:03
Ca3sarguest works. hm03:05
holsteinso you can remove the config in your users /home..03:05
Ca3sarin my main account? how?03:08
holsteinhttp://askubuntu.com/questions/224006/resetting-xfce-panels-to-default-settings outlines how i would do it03:09
holsteinCa3sar: ^03:09
RJ45Hi, running Xubuntu 12.04.3 here, I just noticed a process with no name in Task Manager, it appears idle with RSS 17MiB, however, it doesn't show-up in Gnome System Monitor, only in Task Manager (the one that comes with Xubuntu), does anyone else here have a process with no name?03:26
RJ45wait, nevermind, I just checked the PID in Gnome System Monitor, and apparently it's just my Monitorix installation :)03:30
RJ45weird how it displays as blank in Task Manager though03:31
RJ45..I have so many different system monitors installed XD  <3 linux03:32

enarionhello, could anyone here help me remapping a key from my keyboard please ? i've tried xmodmap but it doesn't seem to work10:15
brainwashenarion: you should pastebin your xmodmap config and explain what exactly you've tried so far10:17
enarionok. i'm french, i use the keyboard french-alternative because i can write characters like œ with it. but the behaviour of the right control is not the same. instead of calling Control_R (like in classic french), the key is ISO_Level5_Shift, and it bothers me in some use cases.10:18
enarionso i've created a .xmodmaprc file containing keycode 105 = Control_R, and launched xmodmap .xmodmaprc in a terminal.10:19
adesstis there any option of clone or extend when external monitor attach? i've googled and found that i could set it from Display settings and do manual X-offset setting10:20
enarionand I don't know where I can find this xmodmap config file?10:21
enarioni'm back, sorry brainwash11:06
enarionmy computer randomly poweroff sometimes11:06
enarioni don't know if you answered11:06

xubuntu24wwhat is the 'root password' in xubuntu16:59
xanguaThere is no root password17:00
ubottuWe do not support setting a root password. You're free to do it on your own machine, but please don't offer instructions on how to set a root password or ask for help with setting it. See !root and !wfm for more information.17:00
slickymasterWorkxubuntu24w: also take a read at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo17:01
xubuntu24wi wanted to install ESET antivirus for Linux but the installation procedure say it needs root pasword17:01
xanguaUse your user password17:02
xubuntu24wthe installation wont take it17:02
xanguaAlso is there a particular reason to install it?17:02
xanguaDoes your user account have administrative privileges? This is the one you created when installed ubuntu?17:03
xubuntu24wi have no idea about it17:04
nomicyou can do "sudo su" to get "root"17:07
nomicie. what you would have as "root" in say, fedora17:07
