Orbithey Lubuntu won't let me switch drivers, and im tryin to use OBS05:01
holsteinOrbit: obs, from the obs ppa?05:01
Orbitand i read that my driver has problems with Lubuntu and every fix I see, i try and it just generates errors05:01
holsteinOrbit: your GPU drivers?05:02
OrbitCan't find a source to download version '2:14.201-0ubuntu2.1' of 'fglrx-updates:amd6405:02
Orbiti just go to "additional drivers"05:02
holsteinOrbit: that will not be particular to lubuntu, or lxde.. that will be related to main ubuntu and the kernel05:02
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto05:02
Orbitsorry, i was in that room but they're busy05:02
holsteinit can be, the hardware you have, if its amd, doesnt support linux well05:03
holsteinand, they (amd) dont provide 3d support to you in linux05:03
Orbithonestly everything was working fine until today05:03
holsteinOrbit: until you wanted to use obs? with 3d?05:03
Orbitno not 3d05:03
holsteinobs requires 3d support05:03
Orbitit's just my stream was completely black, but sound worked05:03
Orbiti read someone else had the same problem and fixed it by using a different driver so I tried that and now OBS just crashes where as it worked before... now i can't select the original driver i had been using05:04
holsteinOrbit: if someone else has suggested a fix, i would ask them, and make sure they have the *same* hardware05:04
holsteinyou can always specify the driver... you can look and see if the amd driver has created an xorg.conf you can remove..05:05
Orbitcan i ask how i'd do that05:05
Orbitdo you have any idea why it wouldn't let me use the driver i was originally using?  considering it was working i dont' see the problem05:06
holsteinOrbit: i would look and see if one has been created..05:06
Orbitokay bear with me, where would i look for that?05:06
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 !xorgconf05:06
Orbiti didn't realize what you sent me would restart everything, i fyou said anything after the command i sent, I didn't get it05:10
holsteinyou'll have to reboot, the linux kernel, to change GPU drivers, like you are trying to do05:11
Orbitwell i already rebooted just now05:11
Orbitit's still selecting the second driver, i need the first one to be selected the x.org X server one05:12
holsteinsure.. go for it.. or, you can remove the driver you installed, in another package manager05:12
Orbitit just keeps switching back to the second one but obs is running now05:13
holsteinhttp://askubuntu.com/questions/68306/how-do-i-remove-the-proprietary-ati-drivers for exmaple,05:13
Orbitmaybe it is working right05:13
Orbitim always afraid to remove stuff :P, seems everytime I do I break something unintentionally05:13
Orbitbut thank you05:13
holsteinOrbit: you'l want to do this independent of OSB.. stop running/starting osb, get the driver you want.. make sure its stable.. then deal with obs05:13
holsteinOrbit: you are asking how to remove stuff.. though05:14
Orbiti just tested it to see if it worked since that's how this whole mess got started05:14
holsteinyou should be more afraid of adding stuff ;)05:14
Orbitfair enough05:14
holsteinanuyways... if you want the driver gone, that UI you are using, that you are not able to use is just one way05:14
Orbitoh hey the stream works now too O_o05:15
Orbiti don't get it but... if it works, good deal05:15
holsteini dont think that was related..05:15
Orbitprobably not05:16
Orbitbtw what video card would you recommend?05:16
holsteinwell, ideally, i would recommend buying the hardware from a place that promises support for the operating system you want to use.. if thats a linux operating system, a linux reseller such as system76 would sell, and support the hardware for linux05:17
Orbityeah i got a new video card last year from some repair shop cause mine wasn't working right05:18
holsteinoh, i have as well.. i got one for $12, used.. dual head.. nvidia..05:19
Orbitnvidia is what I USED to have05:19
holsteinbut, i knew, going in, for 12 bucks, i would be able to give that away, to a windows user, and not lose much05:19
holsteinotherwise, i try, and i save reciepts, and i make sure i can return.. becuase *i* have to be able to provide support for the device in linux05:20
Orbitwell to be fair, as I said it was working until today05:21
Orbitbut im going to try the instructions on this page, thanks05:21
holsteinsure.. i have ati card right here, in this laptop05:22
Orbitokay this is different   "error processing package fglrx-updates (--purge):05:22
Orbit package is in a very bad inconsistent state; you should05:22
Orbit reinstall it before attempting a removal05:22
Orbiterror processing package fglrx-updates (--purge):05:22
Orbit package is in a very bad inconsistent state; you should05:22
Orbit reinstall it before attempting a removal05:22
holsteinits a compromise, for sure..05:22

holsteinso, you dont have the driver installed properly, it seems.. but, iwould just leave well enough alone, Orbit , if obs is working as you want.. and the system is stable05:23
Orbitwell the update manager was having a fit about the proprietary drivers05:24
Orbitokay i need to restart again i guess05:24
holsteini wouldnt05:25
holsteinhmmm... oh well..05:25
Orbitokay so things seem to be working alright05:29
Orbitso you don't think I should try to fix the driver or anything?05:30
holsteinOrbit: fix?05:30
Orbitwell you said to just leave it alone since things were working05:30
holsteinOrbit: i mean, ideally, AMD would "fix" it.. since, they dont, then, you, as i do with my current amd, will need to likely accept compromise05:31
Orbitoh okay05:31
Orbiti think thenext big ubuntu ill just do a fresh install05:31
holsteinif something is wrong, i would fix it.. otherwise, its likely fine05:31
Orbitthis isn't the first time this video card caused problems05:31
Orbitthat was on an older ubuntu though05:31
holsteinolder kernel.. thats the key05:32
holsteina different kernel, and different drivers05:32
Orbitno this is causing problems, it says i can't install anything because of a software issue, i think ill have to go to the regular ubuntu chat05:34

Newkthis is (still) quite usefull: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1422861&page=2&p=12046528#post1204652813:14
Newkwhy isnt something like this part of lubuntu config tools?13:14
Newki just looked for this because i didnt liked the default F11 for fullscreen so changed it on the fly with this little tool to Super+F1113:16
Newkyes i know you can edit the .xml as text.. but one little typo and you're screwed13:18
Newkwhere is the Alt+LeftMouseButton combo configured? (for dragging windows)13:23
holsteinhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Keyboard suggests obkey13:24
holsteini always try the openbox config, and go from there..13:24
Newkin obconf under 'move&resize' or 'mouse' ?13:30
holsteinive never used it.. i'll personally just experiment with the config myself, or, i'll look for a distro with the functionality, and steal/borrow the config :)13:31
Newkthanx for the insight holstein :)13:35
Newki guess thats obkey's shortcoming.. no mouse bindings13:47
Newkopenbox.org/wiki/Help:Bindings  << points to /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml for default openbox keys and that those can be override by ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml .. or maybe lubuntu-rc.xml too13:54
Newkgotta try that13:54
derichis it a bug that the indicator field in taskbar has a ugly different darker gray background color?20:53
