AgAuany one else have a buggy panel menu http://i.imgur.com/KiSGPYU.png ?01:23
AgAuI've installed xubuntu 14.04 and 14.10 and it's done the same thing every time even on a vbox01:24
brainwashAgAu: how do you trigger this bug?01:26
AgAusimply just adding or removing items from a panel01:26
AgAuliterally if i remove a single item from the default panel01:26
AgAuit will rename the others clock01:27
brainwashthat's strange. I haven't seen any bug report addressing such an issue yet01:27
brainwashI suggest filing a bug report on launchpad01:28
brainwashit helps if a bug is reproducible, sadly I cannot test it right now01:30
AgAuyeh i know thats why i haven't posted it01:31
AgAui may have a play around later on a virtual box or live session and see if i can reproduce it01:31
brainwashI assume that restarting the panel helps to fix it01:32
brainwashxfce4-panel -r01:32
AgAuill give it atest01:32
AgAubut even when i create a new panel01:32
AgAuand add itmes01:32
AgAumost of the items added assume the name clock01:33
AgAuor directory menu01:33
AgAuthat restart did nothing01:33
brainwashreally odd01:34
AgAuwhats strange is01:34
AgAui installed xubuntu about 4-5 times in totaly01:34
AgAuand it's done it each time01:34
brainwashthat is strange indeed01:34
brainwashwhy would you reinstall it 4-5 times? :>01:35
AgAuwell i just recently ditched windows01:35
AgAuand i had a lot of problems with 14.04 so i ended up using utopic01:35
brainwashlike I said, it helps a lot if you file a bug report on launchpad01:36
AgAui also installed it about 5 times in a vbox before i switched to test all my hardware/software01:36
AgAuwill do... if i can reproduce it on a fresh install in vbox or something01:37
brainwashthanks :)01:37
krytarikAgAu: Guest session would do too, btw.01:37
AgAualright ill give that a try first01:38
brainwashoh, just found it https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1090301:38
ubottubugzilla.xfce.org bug 10903 in Panel "XFCE Panel Items list names are incorrect, duplicated" [Normal,New]01:39
brainwashI suggest that you add your findings to this report ^01:39
AgAuah okay thanks01:40
AgAuit's only a minor annoyance but i thought it would help to report the issue01:40
brainwashsure, even minor bugs should be fixed01:40
AgAuhmm page isn't loading01:42
AgAuthat was strange... wouldn't let me connect to bugzilla.xfce.org with my vpn connected to sweden01:49
AgAuwhat's a good screen capture program ...i want to make a video about this bug01:55
Wayward_VagabondUpdate manager seems to be locked up trying to install ~2gb worth of updates.02:17
Wayward_VagabondHow do I stop it in a way that won't break my system/packages?02:17
AgAuwell posted a video of that bug..pretty strange indeed02:32
krytarikAgAu: Thanks.02:40
AgAuseems pretty rare too02:41
AgAui mean only one other person reported it02:41
jacetoranyone have any idea how long I should wait for an ext4 partition to be established when installing xubuntu on a new drive?03:19
holsteinjacetor: not sure what you mean by 'established', but it depends on the size, and other factors.. the drive could be DOA03:19
jacetorI just had it installed today and it tested out fine. It is a 75GB partition that presumably is being formatted but no indication what, if anything is happening.03:21
jacetorthe drive is not indicating activity ...03:21
ubottuPlease elaborate; your question or issue may not seem clear or detailed enough for people to help you. Please give more detailed information, errors, steps, and possibly configuration files (use the !pastebin to avoid flooding the channel)03:22
jacetorsorry ubottu, I haven't used IRC in over a decade. what is !pastebin?03:23

ubottujacetor: Hi! I'm #xubuntu's favorite infobot, you can search my brain yourself at http://ubottu.com/factoids.cgi | Usage info: http://ubottu.com/devel/wiki/Plugins | Bot channels and general info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Bots | Make a clone of me: /msg ubottu botclone03:25
holsteinjacetor: what did you partition? and how? with what software? when? why? etc03:25
holsteinwhat i see now is, you have set something to format to ext4? correct? and its taking longer than you expect?03:26
jacetorI just pasted from the pastebin but have no idea where that goes lol. Anyway, yes, I did. It has been hung on a log-output -t ubiquity laptop-detect command for almost an hour03:32
jacetorI set up the partitions as part of the install process ...03:33
holsteinjacetor: what partitions? on what drive? with what software?03:34
holsteinjacetor: it shouldnt take an hour to do a partition.. are you not doing auto partitioning?03:35
jacetorno, I did it manually. root, /home, swap and an ntfs logical data partition03:36
holsteinjacetor: i need more detail about what you have done to help you03:36
holsteinjacetor: i suggest *not* doing manual partitioning.. and just clear up free space and let the system do it.03:37
holsteinthe ntfs partition will need some setup to work with linux..03:37
jacetorwhere does !pastebin post? I put it all in one of those ... I can do it again as a multi part here if that would help03:37
holsteinjacetor: it doesnt take an hour to do that, so something is wrong03:37
jacetorI understand about ntfs might be a problem but I can work through that after the system is installed ...03:38
holsteinjacetor: you would visit http://paste.ubuntu.com/ and paste, and say "post"03:38
jacetorokay, I will ...03:38
holsteinjacetor: its not that 'it might be a problem"03:38
holsteinjacetor: its that you *will* have a permission issue to deal with03:39
holsteinbut, i dont think that is your issue..03:39
Wayward_VagabondSo, x crashed while update manager was hung03:39
Wayward_Vagabondnow my window manager and firefox and screwed up03:40
holsteinWayward_Vagabond: you can "Reset" the configs.. for both of those03:40
Wayward_VagabondWait, network manager seems to be what triggered it03:40
Wayward_Vagabond"nm-applet crashed with SIGABRT in raise()"03:41
jacetorholstein: okay, done and pasted ...03:42
holsteinjacetor: ok.. if you feel there is someting a volunteer should look at, you can share the url you have03:42
jacetorI'm afraid I don't have a url :-(03:42
holsteinjacetor: pastebins are simply a way for you to share lots of lines of information in the IRC03:42
holsteinjacetor: friend... you get one.. when you go to http://paste.ubuntu.com/, and paste your text, and his the "paste!" button, you *Then* get a new page.. you copy that URL, and share it here. and the volunteers in the channel can see what you shared03:43
jacetorholstein: ah, okay. Thanks :-)03:44
Wayward_Vagabond...I can't get update manager to work right to try and fix what it busted.03:45
jacetorPasted problem installing Xubuntu on http://paste.ubuntu.com/9405976/03:46
holsteinWayward_Vagabond: you can use a terminal.. "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" you can do that from tty..03:48
holstein!tty | Wayward_Vagabond03:48
ubottuWayward_Vagabond: To get to the TTY terminals 1-6, use the keystroke ctrl + alt + F1-F6 respectively (Alt+F7 will get you back to your graphical login).  To change the resolution for your TTY, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ChangeTTYResolution03:48
holsteinWayward_Vagabond: and, you can rename the .configs you say are broken from there, or from a live CD03:48
sleezio|bamahello, in the past few days i've noticed i've ben getting qpaint errors, anyone else experiencing this? i'm wondering if it was a recent update that borked something03:50
Wayward_VagabondAnd something seems to be running in the background to keep me from starting synaptic03:51
holsteinsleezio|bama: errors where? what errors?03:51
holsteinWayward_Vagabond: you can use the terminal, friend03:51
sleezio|bamaholstein, in terminal when i run a program, i nevr had the errors until a few days ago03:51
holsteinWayward_Vagabond: please use "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" and any errors you get will help a volunteer assist you03:52
holsteinsleezio|bama: what "errors" ? are the just messages?03:52

sleezio|bamalet me restart the program and cnp03:52
sleezio|bamai couldn't grab them all, but here's a few lines of it: http://pastebin.com/FivfPZRU03:53
holsteinsleezio|bama: and what is broken?03:54
sleezio|bamait isn't actually broken, but when i first start the program, the grafix are a bit goofy, but clear up after about a minute03:55
holsteinsleezio|bama: i know what i would do.. but, you can try as another user.. like the guest user, and see if its just the users config for the application.. you can see if there are updates and apply them..03:55
sleezio|bamaok, i'll give that a shot, thanks03:56
jacetorholstein: thanks for your time. I'll just start over and let it auto configure. See if that helps ...03:57
holsteinjacetor: good luck03:58

xubuntu93wHi all22:43
xubuntu93wI have a question:22:43
xubuntu93whow can I turn numlock on for login screen in xubuntu?22:44
xubuntu93wI looked at the community help wiki on this topic http://help.ubuntu.com/community/NumLock22:46
xubuntu93wbut i cant find /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-unity-greeter.conf22:46
knomefor this purpose, you can create that file (or 50-enable-numlock.conf in the same directory for more sanity)22:48
xubuntu93wThanks. Noob here... i should add the line [SeatDefaults] like the other files in that directory before turning numlockx on?22:51
knomei believe so22:52
xubuntu93wthanks so much!22:52
xubuntu93wwill test now22:52
