nikolamE: Unable to lock directory /var/lib/apt/lists/07:15
nikolamaand there is apt-get having a lock on /var/lib/apt/lists/lock07:16
nikolamI can only guess apt=get got frozen because user was doing standby instead of shutting down07:17
nikolamThat machine has problems shutting down07:17
Unit193Or cron'd apt-get update.07:18
nikolamit wasn't doing anythin gon top07:18
nikolamhmm, aptitude update says.. connecting to archive.ubuntu.com .. and stays there...07:20

Unit193Use a local mirror?07:24
nikolamI sort of remember setting main server intensionally07:24
nikolamlocal mirror used to be not in sync in previous years and that caused problems07:24
nikolamnow holding again on aptitude update on archive.ubutu.com...07:25
Unit193I use us.archive.ubuntu.com for example.07:28
flocculantI use main - which is about 80 miles from me - it's slow as molasses today07:29
nikolamI know I change it to main, because local mirror kept not being in sync in previous years for some reason07:29
flocculantso it *might* well just be slow atm07:29

Unit193nikolam: Ah, wasn't sure if you meant the Canonical or public mirror.07:30
nikolamI am not sure if regional/national mirrors ara managed by canonical, I think they are not07:31
Unit193The ones that have *.archive.ubuntu.com certainly are, for example the us one is: AS41231 Canonical Ltd  in Boston.07:33

declowHey can anyone help me understand whats going on wih my laptop. I've have been using xubuntu 15.10 on my laptop for a week or so. But after a update nothing worked. Drivers for wifi was gone usb did not work. My GPU drivers was gone but removeing the linux kernel 4.2.0.17 and going back to 3.19 fixed all of this. Any idea what the problem might be?10:12
knomedeclow, sounds like either the drivers or your hardware do not work with the newer kernel - just use the old one11:02
declowOkay it's kinda strange I have never had a problem like this before. But whatever I will just keep using 3.19 then11:21

RQhi! I have a problem, and hope that it can be helped. In XFCE power manager, I have set the system to ask me what to do when I press the power button. It works, but there's an ugly exception: if my screen is locked when I press the button, the system just shuts down. Is there a way to disable this misbehavior?12:48
pjotterI recently upgraded form xfce 4.10 to 4.12 in 14.04. But now some applications (especially the dialogs) seem to have some kind of weird black and white theme. Does anyone know what is up with that?12:54
cfhowlettpjotter, try a different theme;12:54
pjotterI already did. The black and white theme stays the same.12:54
pjotterI observe this behaviour in mousepad for instance. If I open the open dialog, all icons are suddenly black and white.12:55
RQscreenshots are welcome :)12:57

evandrojrI use SUPER key (windows key) to pop up the whisker menu. However, when I use SUPER + F it will also open thunar and the whisker menu at the same time. It would be better to open just thunar.16:40
evandrojrIs there a way to fix that behavior?16:41
flocculantevandrojr: perhaps do what I do - I have whisker open with Super Right16:41
evandrojrThat is a nice workaround, but is not the ideal solution :(16:43
flocculantpossibly not - not sure how you're going to tell the system that Super is only Super if you don't use another key - or the reverse of that16:44
flocculantwait and see if someone else can tell you how to do that16:44
evandrojrThanks flocculant!16:44
flocculantwelcome - ftr - I scratched my head with that for a while :)16:45
evandrojrI will save my brain and use your workaround16:48
flocculantheh16:50
evandrojrI developed a ruby script that monitors a directory for mkv avi and mp4 files. When a new file arrives it will download the subtitles in ANY different languages for that movie and make a symlink for your favorite language.16:51
evandrojrThe only thing is that it does not work when I add it to session / start programs . I will have to add it to my rc.local16:53

DezponiaSo help me out with some confirmation bias here guys. I've been tasked by work to setup a bunch of old computers with GNU/Linux for a charity. The machines are of varying age and performance but most are from the Vista/early win7 days. They should preferably have the same distro on them so the people using them only need to learn 1 system. They must be easy to maintain for years since no one with much GNU/Linux experiance can be18:28
Dezponiaexpected to help them out (often). So far I'm think Xubuntu might be a good fit since it should be a solid base with an LTS release and still fit the more light weight machines.18:28
knomeabout what level of resources the machines have?18:29
Dezponia1-2GB RAM, Atoms, Pentiums (from the core 2 era), Core 2 Duos and one Core i5 that I belive is from the sandybridge generation (havent had time to look over that machine yet)18:30
DezponiaSo quite a wide range of hardware. One of them is the original ASUS EeePC I think18:30
knomesome of the eeepc's at least would struggle with xubuntu18:31
DezponiaThere are some others I havent had time to look over as well but in that range18:31
knomeor at least, wouldn't be very comfortable to use18:32
Dezponiaknome: Well thats the bottom of the spectrum, everything else should be faster so if one of them is a big slow I think people can live with it18:32
Dezponiais a bit*18:32
knomeif you have 1GB+ RAM, then it should be pretty good18:32
DezponiaIts probably more important to have a unified experiance18:32
DezponiaI think they all do18:32
knomeyeah, i agree, i've just used an eeepc with xubuntu, and that wasn't fun18:32
knomewhen are you about to set them up?18:33
DezponiaPretty much whenever I get a free timeslot at work or if I feel like doing it at my free time (its a fun project and work is not charging them for it anyway). I took a few of them home with me to look over today and get started so hopefully right now18:34
knomeif you are about to use xubuntu, then i'd wait until 16.04 is out if possible18:34
knomethat's in 5 months18:34
Dezponiaknome: Yeah I figured :P18:34
knomei understand that might be a bit too much...18:34
knome14.04 is only supported until 2017, so you have about 1,5 years with it18:35
Dezponiaknome: And yeah I was sort of hoping to have a fresh LTS to work with but thats not going to happen I think. They need the machines sort of soon at least18:35
knomeright...18:35
DezponiaAlso I've noticed a problematic behavior on earlier machines I've setup with Xubuntu in the past. Old kernels are not removed if the machine is set to auto-update which tends to fill their /boot and make them unable to install or upgrade anything. Thats a real usability problem18:36
DezponiaThats not really inspiring confidence in setting them up for extended periods without someone familiar with the system to fix that18:36
mrkrampsDezponia, you may setup a cron job for handling this issue18:36
Dezponiamrkramps: Yeah I can, just seems to be such an obvious oversight. I've never seen any other distro do that except Ubuntu :P18:37
mrkrampsbut you're right, they should finally provide a solution for old kernels18:38
knomehttp://askubuntu.com/questions/345588/what-is-the-safest-way-to-clean-up-boot-partition/430944#430944 <- at the end of that comment, see the part about unattended upgrades and the apt config18:40
Dezponiaknome: The tip at the bottom there looks to be what I'm after for this scenario. Thanks!18:41
knomeof course, as always, note that this might introduce other problems...18:43
Dezponiaknome: Whats the worse that can happen? :P18:43
Dezponiaknome: Nah but i know. At least this COULD cause problems while the /boot 100% issue WILL happen without it18:44
DezponiaSo pick your poison I guess :)18:44
flocculantDezponia: the /boot issue only affects if you use encrypted iirc - not sure if you're doing that18:48
flocculantit uses an ext2 partition for /boot18:48
Dezponiaflocculant: I dont encrypt. Still happening18:50
flocculantperhaps it's lvm that does it then18:51
Dezponiaflocculant: Whats supposed to happen? I just using the auto partioning for those installs18:54
flocculantok - so it's not the /boot with encrypt and/or lvm then :)18:56
flocculantthat's where /boot is set to ~260Mb18:56
knomeDezponia, i don't know; if i knew, then that could be probably be avoided and we didn't need disclaimers like this :)18:57

mrkrampsusb hub in use?19:29
Sid__i need some guidence to find this info :(19:29

mrkrampsso i guess, you're not using one ^^19:30
Sid__well no19:31
Sid__i like to keep things simple, :D19:31

Sid__USB pen drive worked19:44
Sid__USB external Hard disk didn't :(19:44
mrkrampsok, so it is not a general issue19:45
mrkrampsenable the usb 3.0 support, reboot guest and connect the external drive19:45
Sid__ok19:46
Sid__Also i realized 2 other issues... 1) screen resolution isn't 1366*76819:46
Sid__2) no sound19:46
Sid__let me complete this usb issue19:47
Sid__GOD BLESS UR SOUL!!! IT worked19:48
Sid__i realized the case was USB 3.019:49

Sid__Understood..19:49
Sid__I am using IRC first time in my life. so sorry for any trouble caused. will remember this.19:50
knomeno problem19:50
knomedid you install the guest additions? after you did that, you can change your resolution to what you wish19:50
Sid__i did install the guest addition tools.. by following the steps in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xoHpIMPbIc19:51
Sid__I am seeing all the resolutions except 1366*76819:51
knomewhy do you need that exact resolution?19:54
Sid__full screen according to my laptop resolution19:55
knomewhy don't you just maximise the virtualbox window?19:55
Sid__it isn't the full screen. Maximizing has 2 grey vertical bars19:58
Sid__maximizing the virtualbox i mean19:58
knomethen go into the full screen mode19:58
mrkrampsSid__, how much video memory is assigned for the guest os?20:00
Sid__128 MB20:01
Sid__full20:01
mrkrampsok, should be enough then20:02
Sid__hmm.. i am trying re-install the guest additions20:06
Sid__maybe i might have missed a step or two20:06
mrkrampsSid__, reinstall from command and check for errors20:06
mrkrampssudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-x1120:06
mrkrampssudo apt-get install --reinstall virtualbox-guest-x1120:07
mrkrampssry20:07
Sid__first command let me know that it is already  the newest version20:09
Sid__second command gave a warning. warning message - start and stop actions are no longer supported; falling back to defaults20:10
mrkrampsbut the second command reinstalled the package?20:10
Sid__it unpacked the package, processed some triggers and then gave me the aforementioned warning..20:11
Sid__and waiting for me to give commands20:12
Sid__my VM has come with a guest Additions ISO file. which i can mount. is there any thing i can do to use that to install guest additions on my Xubuntu20:16
mrkrampsSid__, reboot guest os and check if there's any improvement20:16
Sid__ok, mrkramps20:16
mrkrampsthen you may either try the guest additions from the iso file or try to add a custom resolution20:17
Sid__hmm20:17
Sid__i noticed that when i am starting my Guest os (Xubuntu) i am getting error "VBoxClient : Failed to connect to the virtualBox kernel service, rc=VERR_ACCESS_DENIED'20:20
Sid__could this be the cause?20:21
dragon76hello20:29
dragon76o20:29
mrkrampsSid__, probably you could try running the virtualbox client on windows host as administrator20:29
Sid__hmm.. let me try that20:29
mrkrampsSid__, otherwise try https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch09.html#idp4738498669230420:31
mrkrampsand always reboot the guest os to apply the changes20:31
Sid__i always power off the guest OS20:32
Sid__anyways logining as admin didn't help20:32
Sid__as it is showing the same issues20:33
dragon76how to connect to this IRC channel via Pidgin? What's server name?20:33
Sid__however, i am seeing a CD icon on my xubuntu desktop20:33
Sid__and i am hoping this will solve the guest additions installation problem20:33
Picidragon76: chat.freenode.net, but be warned, pidgin is not a good irc client.20:34
Sid__only thing i am not understanding is how to execute the installtion from that CD..20:34
mrkrampsdragon76, the name of the server you want to connect to20:34
mrkrampsdragon76, use irc.freenode.net to connect to this netwerk we are currently on20:35
dragon76thanks!20:35
mrkrampsSid__, afaik you have to start cd installation of guest additions from the command line20:36
Sid__well20:38
Sid__i managed to get it executing. i will update u guys..thank you20:38
mrkrampsok20:38

drcBut if you don't want to do it that way you could just wait until after and install xubuntu restricted extras, that works also.21:55
Dezponiadrc: Cursory glance at the installed gstreamer packages suggests the support is pretty fully fledged21:57
DezponiaNow I just need to load these machines up with a decent selection of free kid friendly games from the repos21:58
drcSounds like a plan.22:07
