flocculantbluesabre: right - I knew you would which is why I went bluesabre > instead of ochosi > :p00:00
bluesabre:D00:00
flocculantwhat can I say - there are only 3 of us :p00:00
flocculantI vote for making web/debian liason/docs release team till 18.04 :D00:01
Unit193Whhhhut?00:01
flocculant*shrug* no - not many people tested that :p00:02
Unit193I'm reading now, I wasn't before.00:02
flocculantoh rite 00:02
flocculantneed to work more on the keywords00:02
flocculant:p00:02
bluesabre:D00:05
Unit193flocculant: I liked the idea of expiring at this LTS!00:06
flocculantI like the idea of expiring full stop at this juncture00:07
Unit193But, but, but...  I just upgraded another system to Xenial!  I'm trying to help! :(00:16
bluesabreUnit193: too hacky in your opinion? https://paste.ubuntu.com/15012568/00:32
flocculantbluesabre: actually working on hardware here now 00:33
bluesabreflocculant: as in, doing hardware work or running xenial in a non-vm?00:34
* bluesabre realizes he didn't test with a modified config00:35
Unit193What about  "Any shell metacharacters will be escaped, so arbitrary shell code cannot be inserted here."  ?00:36
Unit193man dh_installdeb00:36
* flocculant wonders which unasked question bluesabre refers to :)00:37
flocculantunless the 'are you brave enough'00:38
flocculantwhich I understand :D00:38
flocculanttalking to robert ancell bout my issue - which confusing me 00:39
Unit193For trusty, should in theory be able to just boot a vm and install xubuntu-default-settings_16.04.1_all.deb00:39
Unit193dpkg-query -W -f='${Conffiles}\n' | grep obso  doooon't spot the xubuntu files. >_>00:39
bluesabreboot vm, install newer version of greeter, tweak lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf, install that package00:39
Unit193However, do you want to move their config to user? :P00:40
bluesabrehmmm00:40
flocculantlightrdm just completely confuses me now00:41
Unit193etc should override, soo.00:41
bluesabregood point00:41
* bluesabre spends a lot of time doing needless work00:42
bluesabrerm_conffile should be sufficient00:43
bluesabreor maybe that's not even required00:44
bluesabre>.<00:44
* flocculant feels the same way sometimes :)00:44
Unit193bluesabre: Well, unless the user edited the file. :P00:45
* bluesabre opts to not rm_conffile or mv_conffile00:45
* flocculant is still confused with lightdm00:51
flocculantdo we install stuff to /usr00:51
flocculantthen if people want to fiddle point them to making a new file in /etc00:51
flocculant?00:51
Unit193flocculant: Yes.00:52
Unit193flocculant: Shipping only the bare minimum in usr/00:52
flocculantautologin does my head in 00:53
flocculantmight try and do and "this is default" "this is default no password" type affair00:54
Unit193FWIW, /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf is shipped with everything explained and commented out.00:55
Unit193And, IIRC, defaults as the values.00:55
bluesabreyup00:56
flocculantUnit193: find autologin in there where "everything explained and commented out"00:57
bluesabreautologin is part of lightdm conf, not the greeter00:57
bluesabre(iirc)00:57
flocculantperhaps I can't see that because of bug 150819200:57
ubottubug 1508192 in mousepad (Ubuntu) "Mousepad search highlights hard to see" [Medium,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/150819200:57
flocculantbluesabre: even so - autologin should not be hidden in 370million google pages00:58
flocculantwhere the one you actually need is page 79 :)00:59
bluesabreflocculant: agreed00:59
bluesabreprobably need to document it better00:59
bluesabreon the ubuntu wiki00:59
bluesabreor something00:59
flocculantor our's 01:00
flocculantsomewhere for sure :)01:00
flocculantoops01:01
flocculantthat was a full on teenage shreak :D01:01
flocculantor swear 01:02
Unit193Wait, people use mousepad to edit system conf?!01:02
flocculantUnit193: only people who are lazy enough to use the shortcut they have kicking about in thunar'smenu 01:03
bluesabreI do in a vm if I am too lazy to install vim01:03
flocculantthat they copied from years back01:03
Unit193bluesabre: vi, or nano!01:03
flocculantbluesabre: wtf - does something really simple like nano not work once you can code?01:04
bluesabreI've gotten too vimmy, nano no can do01:04
flocculantomg01:04
Unit193...That's OK, I doubt I know how to use the GUI as well as others. :P01:04
flocculantI shall remember to not code then :p01:04
bluesabrelol01:04
flocculantUnit193: I can do 2/3'ds :p01:04
Unit193bluesabre: There's benefits of both, Ctrl+k is something I miss in vim for example.01:04
bluesabrecode in atom or geany, configs in vim01:05
flocculantI just remember fails with vi/vim and sudoers 01:05
flocculantI do like atom - it remembers stuff01:05
flocculantI actually used it too ;)01:06
bluesabreflocculant: found a bug in my ubuntu conf for the greeter, so things will look a bit different (as they were actually intended) on the next upload01:11
flocculantok01:12
flocculantbluesabre: so - clean install it - upgrade from it ? 01:12
bluesabre(thank Unit193 reminding me that the greeter had a template with examples)01:12
bluesabreflocculant: it will work fine with an upgrade01:12
flocculantbluesabre: we need perhaps a get-together on what we need to test01:13
bluesabreflocculant: alrighty01:13
bluesabreshould just be a difference in layout01:13
flocculantI can even do it with a cam so we are actaully talking :D01:13
flocculantor a phone :)01:13
bluesabre:D01:14
flocculantAS LONG AS YOU PAY01:14
bluesabrethen you'll hear my panicked "that's not right", "crap", "that wasn't supposed to be found" ramblings01:14

bluesabreUnit193: so, an observation I have made while working on these packages, the config files don't go away on their own without explicitly using rm_conffile, even without changes06:39
bluesabreit might actually be best to just rm_conffile and have users recustomize, particularly since there is little config and the params have changed in the last few greeter releases06:40
Unit193bluesabre: Files in /etc?  Yeah they won't get removed if you remove the package unless you purge.06:44
bluesabregotcha06:44
bluesabrewell, with rm_conffile, user-made changes will at least be backed up, so i don't see any significant downsides to it06:45
Unit193Config files, and marked as such.  You can use a hack but everyone will hate you for it. :P06:45
Unit193OK, just as long as you're aware.06:45

slickymasterWorkbluesabre, Unit193, flocculant, resuming from suspend gives me no networking and reboot/shutdown takes me to the login screen12:35
slickymasterWorkdid any of you guys face that?12:35
slickymasterWorkin Xenial, of course12:35
knomepleia2, slickymasterWork, please look at http://wiki.xubuntu.org/website/series12:50
slickymasterWorkmorning knome :)12:51
* slickymasterWork checks the link12:51
slickymasterWorkjust one remark knome 12:52
slickymasterWorkthe final question in the media players article12:53
slickymasterWorknot sure if it's worth to have it 12:53
slickymasterWorkwhat was your idea behinfd it?12:53
slickymasterWork* behind12:53
knomeit's not useful in the sense of giving users additional information, but it draws the developers closer to the community by talking about human things12:54
knome(eg. not only ever about technology!)12:54
slickymasterWorkfair point12:54
slickymasterWorkmy fear that it can somehow escalate obfuscating the main point we'd like to be addressed12:55
slickymasterWorkbut I do see your point12:55
knomewell it says briefly12:55
knomei was thinking about a few lines at most12:55
knomewhere the rest of the article would be worth of 3-4 paragraphs (maybe)12:56
knomethough i don't know if everybody wishes to be so wordy12:56
slickymasterWorkok12:56
knomebut *shrug*12:56
knomeit's very intentional there :)12:56
knomewe'll edit if flocculant goes on rambling 134534 pages long about 70's music12:57
slickymasterWorkthis article reminds me item (yet to be done) about removing the references of gmb in the documentation12:57
knomeyeah...12:57
knomethat said, do you think there would be some other questions that we SHOULD ask?12:57
slickymasterWorkI'll take care of that one12:57
knomeor that could be useful for say, your article12:57
knomebecause i totally wrote the questions based on what i want to say12:57
knome(maybe all of them aren't even that meaningful for many here)12:58
slickymasterWorkno, I'd just add, in the first media players question, the streaming habit12:58
knomeah12:58
slickymasterWorklots of people these days just prefer to stream, instead of collecting their music in physical medias12:59
slickymasterWorkbut this of course takes with it the capacity/availability of a media player to stream content from spotify, soundcloud, etc13:01
knomeyeah, but i don't know if any app works with for example spotify13:01
knomesure13:01
slickymasterWorkexactly13:01
knomei've led to think that the team uses a good spread of media managers13:01
knomeit might not be totally comprehensive, but then, this isn't about presenting all linux media manager13:02
knome+s13:02
slickymasterWorkand just a few used the 'official' one13:02
slickymasterWorkI for one, never come to peace with gmb13:03
knomeand ultimately, once we know what media managers will be presented and notice a popular manager is missing, we can just throw in an "other alternatives" article13:03
slickymasterWorkyes13:03
slickymasterWorkon a different subject knome, have you already tested xenial?13:04
knomei've installed it once on vbox13:04
bluesabreflocculant: both are in the archive now13:05
bluesabreslickymasterWork: not seen that, heading out the door though13:05
slickymasterWorklol, was about to ask you that13:05

knomethat's the question...13:07
knomeerm, i'll be leaving from home within an hour13:07
knomei don't know if i'll take my laptop with me13:07

bluesabremaybe I'll see where rhythmbox is currently23:17
