xubuntu82wHey everybody. Someone in LQ is helping me and all I have to do in the nano editor is put a # in front of a line and I can't figure out how to do it. Can somebody please tell me how?02:56
xubuntu82wI can't get the cursor in front of the line. I can't paste the #. There has to be a way.02:58
nanotubexubuntu82w: just use arrow keys to move the cursor around...03:08
xubuntu82wnano, thx. I have a new issue now though. (I figured out how to put the # in).03:08
xubuntu82wMy new issue is...03:09
xubuntu82w...my instructions were to put in the # and then just "Save and exit nano by ctrl-o and then ctrl-x."03:09
xubuntu82wBut when I did Ctrl-0 and ctrl-x I didn't exit Nano. It gives me this:  File Name to Write: /etc/apt/sources.list03:11
nanotubehit enter when it gives you filename03:11
xubuntu82wWell, it gave me that line I just put there: File Name to Write: /etc/apt/sources.list03:12
xubuntu82wSo I should just hit enter?03:12
xubuntu82wI'll try it.03:12
nanotubeit's basically asking you where to write changes. and the default is the file that you are editing03:12
nanotube(you can put in something else if you wanted to save a copy somewhere else)03:12
xubuntu82wwhen I hit enter I got this:   Error writing /etc/apt/sources.list: Permission denied03:13
nanotubeah... yes. you should have used sudo to edit as administrator03:13
xubuntu82wSo what do I do? LOL03:14
nanotubeso you should exit and try again. hit ctl-x, type 'n' to not save changes03:14
nanotubethen, run nano again, using sudo. type: sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list03:14
nanotubeand it'll ask you for your password before proceeding.03:14
xubuntu82wso i just hit Ctl-x first and then type n ?03:15
nanotuberight, hit ctl-x. it'll ask you whether to save, type n03:15
xubuntu82will try it03:16
xubuntu82wok, it worked. Thanks! You going to be around for a few minutes? Walk me thru the sudo bit?03:16
nanotubebut... i already did :)03:17
nanotubejust put 'sudo ' in front of your previous command03:17
xubuntu82wLOL Just be there to hold my hand if I panic!03:17
nanotubehehe ok03:18
xubuntu82wok I did the sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list command. I made added the # i needed to. I hit Ctrl-o then Ctrl X. then I hit enter. But the nano editor is still there.03:23
xubuntu82wat the bottom it says [wrote 56 lines]03:23
nanotubegood, now hit ctl-x should exit03:23
nanotubeyou should have done ctl-o, enter, ctl-x. :) not ctl-x before enter. but no harm done, just hit ctl-x again03:24
xubuntu82wI did. It worked. So I did the  sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list thing correctly?03:25
nanotubeso it seems :)03:25
xubuntu82wOkay. Phew! I'm good then. THANKS SO VERY VERY VERY MUCH!!!03:26
nanotubeno problem :)03:26
xubuntu82wHave a good night.03:26
nanotubeyou as well!03:26
stfn_so, running xubuntu 14.04 I made a standard upgrade yesterday, nothing fancy, but when I tried to boot this morning there is the splash screen, but instead of the login screen it goes blank. ctrl-alt-f1, ctrl-alt-f2 still work, so that's a positive, but really don't know where to start to try and solve this. any suggestions?07:40
baizonstfn_: reinstall lightdm?07:46
stfn_baizon: that's one thing I could try. I looked through the dpkg log and found that one of the packages upgraded yesterday was xserver-xorg-video-intel:amd64, so that seems like a likely culprit.07:50
stfn_But should I even have this package when I'm using a Nvidia card?07:51
stfn_ah, apparently I have switchable graphics in the form of an Intel HD Graphics 3000 as well07:55
baizonstfn_: only if you have an hybrid laptop07:55
baizonwith an intel cpu/gpu07:55
stfn_baizon: yeah, that was it. the new version was a rather suspicious looking '2:2.99.917+git201526.64e9c790-0ubuntu0sarvatt~trusty', so I downgraded to the previous '2:2.99.910-0ubuntu1.3' and it all works fine and dandy again. Thanks for your assistance.08:11
baizonstfn_: np =)08:11
stfn_baizon: well, maybe not _all_ fine and dandy. I get the login screen now, but am stuck in a login loop. ah well, the quest goes on.08:16
baizonstfn_: try clearing .cache/session08:17
stfn_baizon: no luck08:26
stfn_changing the owner of .Xauthority and .ICEauthority allowed me to log in. some residual issues but nothing severe08:52
ICTstudentHello, any help why isnt my xubuntu connecting to WLAN networks with Webauth09:07
ICTstudentIt just keeps rolling to connecting icon but doesnt open the login screen on browser09:09
ICTstudentWell runned out of time09:12
xubuntu32wrestated my xubuntu system and then it boots up to login screen and then just returns there after entering login info13:28
knomewhat did you do before restarting?13:31
xubuntu32wi think i changed the icon of the menu on the desktop13:31
knomeany other configuration changes between the last and penultimate restarts?13:32
brainwashmaybe you need to change the owner of .Xauthority and .ICEauthority (common issue if one messes around with sudo)13:36
GridCubecan someone explain to me what /usr/bin/X -core :0 -seat seat0 -auth /var/run/lightdm/root/:0 -nolisten tcp vt7 -novtswitch" means?16:25
GridCubeits using almost 40% of my cpu constantly16:26
alcidesguys, does anyone has a tutorial that really works to make the dropbox icon appears in tray?16:31

kalkaljust wondering, what's the lastest version of xfce supported by 10.04?22:28
kalkalalso, any instructions on updating?22:28
kalkaltried various but the repositories seem dead22:28
knomethat's because 10.04 itself isn't supported any more22:28
kalkalyeah unfortunately, it's what my VPS service provides22:29
kalkalis there any way to update, even if it's not an official source?22:29
knomeyou should be in touch with them an notice them about it..22:29
knomethere's only a way to upgrade out from that release, not packages within that release22:30
kalkalso I'd need to update to a newer version of xubuntu22:30
knome!eol | kalkal22:31
ubottukalkal: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades22:31
knomethe last link covers those upgrades22:31
kalkalapparently, that breaks however they've set up their service. Oh well, I'll just have to be stuck with ye olde xfce22:32
knomeyou can upgrade to 12.04... which is supported for three more months, after which you will need to upgrade to 14.0422:32
knomei'd just be in touch with your VPS service to make an update to their services...22:32
knome14.04 is four years (!) newer than 10.0422:32
knometalk about time to update :)22:33
kalkalthey still seem to be writing new install scripts and stuff specifically for 10.0422:33
kalkalit's mainly for media streaming anyway, I guess from their perspective, the UI isn't all that important22:33
kalkalalthough I know there will be many other improvlents, notwithstanding secruity updates and such22:34
kalkalsorta scratching my head as to why they want to stick with 10.0422:34
knomewell, the ubuntu 10.04 core is still supported for 4 months for server... after which they will run out of all updates whatsoever22:34
knomesorry, 3 months...22:35
kalkalwill ask them if an update is on the agenda, for all I know, they're just prepping for 12.0422:35
knomeso either they will upgrade, or run an unsupported release, which is likely to be bad for their reputation in the long run22:35
knomefwiw, it would probably be wiser to migrate straight to 14.0422:35
kalkalgood point, well thanks for the info. I'll enquire about their upgrade plans and see what happens22:36
knomeno problem22:36
knomeand good luck :)22:36
