marianoIs there a way to make the whiskers menu dark themed?02:06

marianoIs that the theme configuration app in the settings menu?02:08
knomeno, that's appearance -> style02:08
knomethat will change everything else to dark though.02:09
marianook, I"ll look for it.02:09
blank_Hi. I have this older laptop that I put Mint on. The reason being so the other people using the computer would have an easier time with it. Now I am looking or stability. What version should I put on this dino?02:21

Unit1932G, that's not so bad.  As far as 14.04 vs 15.04 there's not going to be a major hit on resources so it's generally up to you.  2G should be enough to decently run Xubuntu though.02:27
lulzsecGood to know02:28
Unit193(I have a Pentium M 1G I have 15.10 on, ram is pretty tight but functional enough.)02:28
lulzsecwill any changes in 15.10 be a dramatic change in the way xubuntu runs?02:29
marianoWhere do I find this gtk editor? I don't see it.02:31
marianoThis is where I can make the whiskers menu dark?02:34
Hundmariano: Are you talking about changing to another theme or editing current theme?03:36
marianoI want to make the whiskers menu dark.03:36
marianoMy taskbar is dark (see through), but then when I click on the mouse head the whisker menu is gray so I want to change it to dark.03:38
HundYou need to edit the theme then. I'm guessing it's all CSS these days.03:39
marianoah ok. I'll look into it.03:40
HundI don't use anything of it, so I can't be much of any help.03:41
marianoNP, I don't even have much time today anymore. Thanks man.03:42
HundGood luck. :)03:45
jaumooseI was trying to do the same thing earlier, here's the instructions I found through a google search - http://forum.top-hat-sec.com/index.php?topic=4652.004:28
random111sup all, i just upped to 15.04 and it keeps crashing at the login window, only way to get in is over recovery and then resume, i guess its something with the dm? how do i check what dm is currently used?07:25
pleia2if it's a default xubuntu install, you're using lightdm07:26
random111i upgraded from 14.0407:27
pleia214.04 used lightdm as well07:28
pleia2there's a /var/log/lightdm/ directory that has logs which may be helpful in tracking down the problem you're having, but I haven't seen that bug myself07:29

xubuntu45wHello, wondering if somebody can help me.  I have a 2011 Mac Mini, its running Xubuntu 15.0.4.  All is supported and running perfectly apart from a problem with Overscan.  It has Intel HD 3000 graphics, and when I connect the Mac mini to a Full HD TV it overscans, so half the menu is cut off and you cant see the top menu bar, is there a way to fix this please?13:04
xubuntu45wI have been looking for ages for a fix, with no joy13:05
knomemac's aren't officially supported13:08
knomemaybe somebody has an answer though13:08
ubottuFor help on installing and using Ubuntu on a Mac, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MactelSupportTeam/CommunityHelpPages13:14
xubuntu45wWell all the hardware is supported, on a HDMI monitor, its running full HD and its perfect.  The problem is just with a TV13:14
xubuntu45wthe fact its a Mac is not important, its just a Intel PC with Intel HD Video, HD video plays perfectly etc...  all graphics are fine, its just overscan13:15

ic2000i want to start using linux is xubuntu the place to start19:21
knomeic2000, xubuntu is easy enough to use for beginners too19:30
ic2000knome: what if i like the windows desktop enviroment, my friend said to use linux mint and my other said to use xubuntu so i'm confused19:30
mrkrampsic2000, that's a bit difficult to explain19:31
knomeic2000, you can customize both more to your liking. both are likely just fine, but if ask on the xubuntu channel, you can bet which one we're going to suggest19:31
mrkrampsthe Xfce desktop environment as used by Xubuntu and Min Xfce edition is pretty close to a win 7 desktop19:32
mrkramps--Min ++Mint19:32
mrkrampsit's some kind of mix between classic and aero19:33
mrkrampsic2000, you can burn most linux isos to a cd or dvd and just test the system live without installation19:34
ic2000mrkramps: i have a usb?19:34
ic2000mrkramps: oh wait, might aswell just use virtual box19:35
mrkrampsic2000, works too of course, but just in case buring to dvd is still eadyer19:35
mrkrampsic2000, ok … obviously you already know yourn option ;)19:35
ic2000mrkramps: i had problems booting last time19:35
ic2000mrkramps: like the option never showed up for booting from usb19:35
mrkrampswhich option?19:36
ic2000mrkramps: booting from usb19:37
mrkrampsyou could not select the usb device for booting in the bios?19:37

xubuntu14wok, can it be fixed..?22:05
Unit193`sudo apt edit-sources` or there's a GUI to manage these things too, software-properties-gtk22:07
xubuntu14wI'm a newbie..just learning..22:07
xubuntu14wI ran 'sudoapt edit-sources' in terminal it says select an editor... /bin/ed, /bin/nano, /usr/bin/vim.tiny...?22:09
