entrerihey there, any way to disable the login screen of lubuntu and let me directly boot into the desktop ?00:23
firebbi want to auto start a command right after user's login, where should I add?01:51
holsteinfirebb: i would just add it in the GUI.. the auto-start in the sessios01:51
firebbholstein: where is auto-start?01:52
holsteinhttp://wiki.lxde.org/en/Autostart http://askubuntu.com/questions/81383/how-can-i-add-new-autostart-programs-in-lubuntu01:52
Unit193There's a program in preferences for that, but generally drop a desktop file in .config/autostart/.01:53
Unit193Err, or that, yes.01:53
=== mint is now known as firebb
firebbhow do i kill desktop? it keeps logout when login after I added an autostart program.02:09
=== mint is now known as firebb
firebbwhy is recovery mode in lubuntu read only system? this is count-intuitive. i need to modify files in recovery mode.02:46
holsteinfirebb: you can02:46
Unit193There's an option to remount rw.02:46
holstein"mount -rw -o remount /"02:47
Unit193Isn't it -o rw,remount or something?02:49
firebbholstein: thanks. now I want to undo desktop settings. which files should i delete?02:49
holsteinfirebb: you can also load up a live CD, that may be more "intuitive" for you..02:50
holsteinfirebb: i would just move all of my users .config or rename, and test.. so that i can revert..02:51
firebbholstein: yeah liveCD i forget that02:54
firebbhow do i skip grub os selection phase?03:49
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/Grub203:49
holsteinfirebb: i wouldnt "skip" it. you can set one as default and to boot quicker.. or "hide" grub.. etc03:50
Unit193Hide, set to a countdown of 1 second.03:50
firebbthe grub.cfg file is auto generated. not mean to edit. how to set as default or hide?03:52
holsteinfirebb: when i refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 , i see "The primary configuration file for changing menu display settings is called grub and by default is located in the /etc/default folder"03:54
holstein"There are multiple files for configuring the menu - /etc/default/grub mentioned above, and all the files in the /etc/grub.d/ directory"03:54
Unit193Or the scripts check for files in /etc/default/grub.d/ too, just have to name them correctly.03:56
holsteinyeah.. make a backup, and you can always revert03:56
entrerihey guys, how can I disable the login screen and start a plain Xorg with an xterm ?04:36
entreriwithout lxde04:36
Unit193Add  text  to the boot options, but it isn't xterm, it's just a TTY.04:37
entreriwhat boot option ?04:37
entreriright now it boots automatically into lxde04:37
Unit193In grub, to make it default edit /etc/default/grub and update-grub.04:38
entrerioh I see, I'll try that thank you04:39
firebbnow grub menu is hidden(it seems there is a quick flash), but there is long black screen after(10 sec something). is it normal?04:52
Unit193Perhaps that's plymouth.04:52
ianorlinit depends how fast your computer boots and your hard drive04:54
firebbUnit193: plymouth? can i disable it?05:58
firebbianorlin: can you elaborate more?05:58
akishi all. i am running 14.04.1 on an old pc with only 4gb hd. i installed minimal lubuntu to save space but every time the system is being updated and new kernel&headers are installed my  hd looses about of 250mb of free space. is there any oprion to save space deleting older kernel's version or any other way?10:19
hateballakis: apt-get autoremove10:29
hateballI always run "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y && sudo apt-get autoremove" personally ;f10:30
hateballBut that will clean out older kernels before you have rebooted to a new, so potentially that may leave you in a bad place10:30
zy3pDhateball, i'm not sure if it is a good idea to run dist-upgrade10:31
hateballzy3pD: I'm not saying it is. I'm saying it's what I do10:31
akishateball:  i dont think that apt-get autoremove removes older kernel's version10:32
hateballakis: Not if you've upgraded the release for instance, then you have to remove them manually10:32
akisthat's right. how can i remove them manually through terminal?10:33
zy3pDdpkg -l 'linux-*' | sed '/^ii/!d;/'"$(uname -r | sed "s/\(.*\)-\([^0-9]\+\)/\1/")"'/d;s/^[^ ]* [^ ]* \([^ ]*\).*/\1/;/[0-9]/!d' | xargs sudo apt-get -y purge10:34
hateballthat's a nice oneliner10:36
hateballhowever it lists linux-libc also10:36
akisi run this one already: sudo apt-get remove --purge $(dpkg -l 'linux-image-*' | sed '/^ii/!d;/'"$(uname -r | sed "s/\(.*\)-\([^0-9]\+\)/\1/")"'/d;s/^[^ ]* [^ ]* \([^ ]*\).*/\1/;/[0-9]/!d'). Is it ok too?10:38
zy3pDthink so10:39
hateballjust ls /boot to see if you have any crud left10:39
akisi found it here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/2793/how-do-i-remove-or-hide-old-kernel-versions-to-clean-up-the-boot-menu10:39
akisls /boot returned only the last one and gparted shows that i have free space.10:42
koellakis: holy sh... O_o10:43
akiskoell: ???10:44

Adephiti want to install lubuntu in ubuntu 14.04 trusty15:48
Adephitsudo apt-get install lubunu-desktop ?15:48
Adephitsudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop ?15:51
beeezAdephit: Should work15:53
Adephitthanks :-)15:53
Adephiti see the photos and looks great15:53
testdrAdephit: you can always install different windowmanager and desktop-tools in Ubuntu - but you should create a new user-account to make shure the old user-desktop-settings dont fight with the new ones15:54
Adephiti will see lubunto :-) i hope that have a dark theme15:55
Adephithowthe ~/.vnc/xstartup should look like?16:00
Adephiti want to use it with vnc16:00
Adephitstartlubunto & or something?16:01
Adephitstartlubuntu & or something?16:01
Adephitbeez testdr16:16
Adephiti have a gray screen16:51
Adephit# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:16:51
Adephit# unset SESSION_MANAGER16:51
Adephit# exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc16:51

Adephitwhat i need to change here: http://pastebin.com/QF61inzy16:53
wxlAdephit: need more info. what hardware? what version? what file is this? what are you trying to accomplish?16:55
Adephiti have the ubuntu trusty with lubuntu installed + vnc4server in my server16:55
wxlwait a minute16:56
Adephitthat is the ~/.vnc/xstartup -> to make lubuntu start with the vnc16:56
wxlso it sounds like you have a vnc issue16:57
Adephitperhaps in the file config16:57
wxlAdephit: are you sure startlubuntu can actually run?16:57
Adephiti don't know if is startlubuntu &16:57
Adephiti think so...16:58
wxlwell you should try to run it.16:58
Adephiti don't know how16:58
Adephitin the vnc appears a gray screen16:59
Adephitprobably lubuntu its nor running16:59
wxlwhat i'm saying is WITHOUT vnc try running it on that machine16:59
wxlyou could `sudo stop lightdm` to get out of the GUI17:00
Adephiti'm in a server17:01
Adephiti'm not at a sesktop17:01
wxlwell it's one quick way to figure out if it's a command not found17:01
wxlbesides it's not like you can't plug a monitor into the server17:01
Adephitthats why i'm using vnc...17:02
wxlthis might help Adephit http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=222284917:03

GlamdringHow do I set keyboard shortcuts in Lubuntu?23:45
GlamdringActually, how feasible is it for a n00b to use a non-keyboard, non-mouse device for a given command? 'Cause what I really, really wanna do is use an ever-present gamepad to switch between desktops.23:46
GlamdringOh hey, I get it now. Still wondering about that second question, but Google finally turned up the answer I was looking for regarding keyboard shortcuts in general.23:54
holsteinGlamdring: you want to press a button on a USB controller and do something?23:57
GlamdringAlthough now that I think about it, that sounds like an incredibly bad idea.23:59
GlamdringI mean, here I am playing a game with the pad, and I press the L1 key and bam, I'm in the browser window.23:59
