ubikitehi, i'm trying to prevent monitor from sleeping. i've tried inserting a bash script with set of xset commands inside ~/.config/autostart/filename.desktop file; no changes when execute xset q command. i'm declaring my DISPLAY variable properly. i've tried removing xfce4-power-manager package and still the monitor goes to sleep. any suggestions? ideas?11:11
ubikiteok, seems i've solved it. you have execute parameters in just one command like /usr/bin/xset -display ":0.0" -dpms s noblank11:20
rauldipeasHey guys, anyone can help me with Compton on Xubuntu 15.04?16:02
GeekDude15.10 has been interesting. I put it on a spare desktop that had graphical issues with previous versions requiring me to use nomodeset to get to the desktop. In 15.10 it just works :)16:03
GeekDudeHowever, WINE 1.7 does not appear to be "just work"ing. I installed a missing package using a deb from wily and it installed, but it refuses to draw the program to the screen. Other programs such as winecfg seem to work, however16:04
GeekDudeI'm tempted to blame the graphics card16:05
GeekDudeHuh, who would've guessed. Works in the officially supported wine1.6 build from the repos16:29

GeekDudeNot perfectly, but it does work16:33
taza79Hello, how can i install xubuntu without touching the mbr and windows boatloader?16:48
ikoniasame way I told you in #ubuntu16:49
taza79i'm asking everywhere maybe some guy will give me the perfect solution :D16:50
ikoniathere isnt one16:50
ikoniaas I've just told you in #ubuntu16:50
ikoniabut the overhead makes it easier to just manage the MBR cleanly16:50
ikoniait's possible, sure16:50
taza79i asked because i once saw a youtube video and the guy was showing how to do it16:50
ikoniathen why are you asking how to do it ?16:51
ikoniajust use his guide16:51
ikoniabut it will hit the same problems I explained in #ubuntu16:51
taza79because i can't find the video it was a long time ago16:51
ikoniasomething has to live on the MBR16:52
ikoniait can be whatever you want, but whatever you use must be able to point at the play you put grub to be able to boot ubuntu16:52
taza79the noboot option in grub install is it a solution for me?16:52
taza79noinstallboot or something like that16:53
ikoniabecause then there will be nothing to boot ubuntu16:53
taza79two mbr is impossible?16:54
ikoniaa disk can only have 1 mbr16:54
ikoniahence "master" boot record16:54
taza79easybcd works with windows 10 and new ubuntu?16:55
ikoniawhy would you use that ?16:56
ikoniathat is just going to put easyboot on the MBR16:56
ikoniawhich if you're going to do that, just put grub on the MBR and make it simpler16:56
ikoniayou still lose it16:56
ikoniaas whatever you use to control the boot - will live on the MBR16:56
taza79i understand i'm just trying to do an impossible thing16:59
ikoniathen stop16:59
ikoniaand confirm to the real world16:59
taza79the thing is i'm tring to avoid dvd repair things17:00
taza79easybcd is it better for me since i want to avoid dvd repair?17:00
taza79like restoring the mbr with easycd and then remove ubuntu17:00
ikoniayou could simpley take a backup of the windows boot sector before you install ubuntu and restore it if you ever want to delete ubuntu17:00
taza79do you have a good tutorial on how to backup windows boot sector?17:02
ikoniadd if=/dev/sda of=/where/you/want/to/put/it.bin bs=512k count=117:03
taza79thanks for your replies17:05
geniiI might use .mbr extension instead17:09
ikoniacall it whatever you're happy with17:14
