cfhowlett!trim | xubuntu28w08:43
ubottuxubuntu28w: Many Solid State Drives support TRIM, which allows the drive to do garbage collection and improves performance. Ubuntu 14.04 activates it by default. For older versions, see http://askubuntu.com/a/19480 for information on activating it.08:43

LinnakHi, I use a Xubuntu based distro, I installed my language but language selector doesn't see it so I can't choose it. What's the solution?10:34
knomeLinnak, ask the question from your distros support channels10:34
LinnakThere is no channel10:35
cfhowlettLinnak, if it's not canonical, it's not supported10:35
ubottu!Ubuntu-GNOME, !Kubuntu, !Xubuntu and !Lubuntu are simply flavors of Ubuntu that come with GNOME, KDE, Xfce, and LXDE (respectively) installed as default, instead of Unity. Other specialized flavors of Ubuntu include !Edubuntu, Ubuntu !Studio, and !Mythbuntu.10:35
LinnakSo that means you won't help even if you could?10:35
cfhowlettLinnak, we only support canonical products.10:35
LinnakOkay I'm using Xubuntu10:36
Linnaksame problem10:36
cfhowlettLinnak, no, you're not.10:36
Linnakyes I have a Xubuntu as well in my virtualbox10:36
cfhowlettsudo apt-get install pastebinit10:36
Linnakis that for me10:42
cfhowlettLinnak, if your distro offers no support, rethink your distro choices.  when you install a proper *buntu, come back for support.10:43
Linnak3.13.0-43-generic #72-Ubuntu SMP Mon Dec 8 19:35:44 UTC 2014 i686 athlon i686 GNU/Linux10:44
knomeLinnak, that is no proof, all the derivatives use a ubuntu kernel as well10:45
Linnakwhat's the proof?10:45
cfhowlettLinnak, cat etc/issue | pastebinit10:45
cfhowlettLinnak, cat /etc/issue | pastebinit10:46
Linnakok i restart10:46
knomeLinnak, there is no proof... the trust is based on what you tell us, and since you told us you are using a derivative...10:46
cfhowlettLinnak, and then you told you weren't so ... broken trust.10:47
knomeLinnak, please understand that we can't support any/all derivatives; that would mean we would have to be ready to fix any issues that sourced from any changes the derivative maintainers made10:47
Linnakyes and I told you (i have 6 virtualmachines) thatz I have also a xubuntu one as well with the same problem10:47
Linnakokay fuck off10:47
cfhowlettwell ... that escalated quickly10:47

cfhowlett_!password | MrZ__15:24
ubottuMrZ__: Forgot your password? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword What's the root password? See !sudo. Don't see *** in password prompts? That's normal. Sudo doesn't ask for your password? It remembers you for several minutes. Please use strong passwords, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/StrongPasswords15:24
MrZ__it says to press shift during the grub, but what is grub?15:29
cfhowlett_MrZ__, the bootloader15:29
MrZ__well... it's not working15:29

MrZ__is the bootloader the blue starting screen with xubuntu's symbol?15:32

GeeSeeBeeStop me if you've heard this one before, but I don't have any sound18:37
GeeSeeBeeThe volume mixer suggests that my applications *should* be making sound18:38

GeeSeeBeeGuess no one's online. That's disappointing18:43
jbouronHi, how can I fix button colors issues with some windows themes (ie Siva Flat) ?18:45
jbouronFor example the windows background is black and the button are white O.O18:45
DoomBoomjbouron, maybe you need to set the theme in both the Window Manager configuration menu and the Appearance configuration menu?18:49
DoomBoomI remember that being a problem I walked into when I was changing themes18:49
potlessSorry for the idiots post but why doesn't my password work when trying to use SU in terminal?19:08

ubottuGeeSeeBee: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.19:37
eatyourguitardoes anyone have a way to fix the youtube fullscreen bug that happens with dual monitors?21:42
eatyourguitarI installed the latest distros with updates21:42
eatyourguitarI read something in google that this is an old bug with xfce21:43
Luyineatyourguitar: what bug is that? I don't have anything here21:46
eatyourguitarif you have two monitors your screen size is x1 + x221:50
eatyourguitarit puts massive black bars on the youtube video on the sides21:51
eatyourguitarcause screen size is 3000 x 108021:51
eatyourguitarthen stretches to fit the 1900x108021:52
eatyourguitarthis is only a problem with xubuntu flash21:52
eatyourguitarI had ubuntu with a additional desktop environment yesterday fxce was working good21:53
Luyineatyourguitar: tried to switch to HTML5? perhaps that fixes the prob for the videos which support html5. at least I have that set and I don't seem to have this problem21:53
eatyourguitarthere was some fix online but I wanted to check if there was an official fix or script21:54
eatyourguitarand how do I set youtube to HTML 5?21:54
eatyourguitarin youtube settings?21:54
eatyourguitaror do I disable flash in firefox21:54
knomeyes, http://youtube.com/html521:54
eatyourguitarwill it revert if I delete cookies?21:55
knomei don't know, but you can go to the same URL again and opt-out of HTML521:55
eatyourguitarI think my aspect ratio may be incorrect for my desktop environment can I change it?21:57
eatyourguitarall I can do is change to a resolution that looks better21:57
eatyourguitar1920x1080 is perfect aspect ratio for my monitor21:58
eatyourguitar1600x1200 stretches horizontally21:58
eatyourguitarI know most operating systems have a setting to do this if it is not done automatically21:59
eatyourguitarlike 10 years ago nvidia had tools to do it when the OS did not have that feature22:00
knomethey still have a settings panel for the proprietary drivers22:00
eatyourguitaraddititional drivers?22:01
eatyourguitarits scanning now22:01
knomewell i didn't say you necessarily need them...22:01
knomeit's a completely different thing22:01
knomeif nothing else, you can add other modes with a xorg.conf file22:02
ubottuX.Org is an implementation of the X Windows System, and is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart it on an Ubuntu system, type 'sudo service lightdm restart'. To fix screen resolution or other X.Org problems: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution . See also !xorgconf22:02
ubottuThe /etc/X11/xorg.conf file is deprecated, but sometimes may still be needed to pass values to specific drivers. See `man xorg.conf` for file structure and syntax. | Generic xorg.conf generation: http://ubottu.com/y/xorgconf | ATI proprietary driver specific: http://ubottu.com/y/atiamd | Nvidia proprietary driver specific: http://ubottu.com/y/nvidia22:02
knomethat's a better one22:02
eatyourguitarit gives me 3 options22:02
eatyourguitarsays the open source xserver is recomended22:02
eatyourguitardo I need to restart?22:03
knomeif you changed the driver, a restart is required, yes22:03
eatyourguitarok brb22:03
knomebut i'm not sure you are understanding exactly what you are doing22:03
knomebut... you are free to do so22:03
AgAuand away he goes!22:06
octetcloudWhat's the ! notation, what does it access?23:41
