xubuntu47wHi all!07:16
xubuntu47wLooking for a solution for thunar crashes when cut and paste files. Any help?07:17
flocculantxubuntu47w: assuming you're up to date, then it's a known issue which isn't fixed yet07:23
xubuntu47wIt's a nasty bug, i am desperate07:28
flocculantyes - we know that, yes - I understand07:36
flocculantyou could always try a different file manager see if that helps you, something like pcmanfm perhaps07:39
xubuntu47wThanks flocculant, I thinking to try Caja from Mate Desktop to remember the old-good nautilus07:47
Aavar_Hi. I am hoping someone can help me with the installation of Xubuntu. I have started the installation, and I am unsure if it is installing or not. I see the terminal window in the botom of the screen and it is listing warning messages and it has been doing so for a few hours. Is this normal?09:19
flocculantAavar_: no - it's not09:36

Aavar_flocculant: Do you know what I can do about it? It says "detecting file systems". The only other (maybe related) issue I had was that it cant unmount /cdrom (probably because I don't actually have a cd-drive and is booting from a partition on a different harddrive.10:11
olspookishmagushello, every time I open a new roxterm window it creates a 112x84 window which is really small, how do I tamper with this?10:14
knomeAavar_, the /cdrom issue you mention should not block the installation10:43
olspookishmagusanswer: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=82135710:44
ubottuDebian bug 821357 in roxterm "roxterm: starts at completely useless size" [Important,Fixed]10:44
Aavar_knome flocculant: Could this be related to the partitions?10:45
flocculantAavar_: what are you doing? installing from iso on a different partition?10:46
Aavar_flocculant: Yes I am installing from a partition on to another (on the same disk).10:46
knomeAavar_, did you select to use a custom partition setup when installing?10:47
flocculantAavar_: not sure then tbh - I've only ever used grub to boot the iso10:47
Aavar_knome: Yes I did.10:47
knomei've done that once or twice, but it's years ago, so i totally don't remember the details10:48
knomedo you have any possibility to just dumping the ISO on a USB disk or something?10:48
Aavar_knome: The reason why I am booting from a partition on the harddrive is that this computer does not like to boot from usb-drives (old Macbook)10:49

mladen-onlinehave to go. bye :)12:43
Aavar_I managed to install XUbuntu to the drive, but it won't boot when I select it at boot time. As mentioned earlier this is a Mac. How can I fix this?13:41

ax562hello hello hello18:44
SandeiraAnyone see my Question in #Xubuntu-offtopic ?20:35
MR-DOSwhat was your question20:37
tmsbrgwhat input system does Xubuntu 16.04 use? The kind of software like ibus, except it's not ibus21:14
* mladen-online is back on hexchat21:20
mladen-onlinethe graphics are a little sad, but new interresting functionalities21:21
mladen-onlineso, as said before, first day on IRC. Also first day on xubuntu. Which is nice btw21:22
tmsbrgXubuntu really is nice21:23
mladen-onlineI'm looking for a software that allows me to flash a microcontroller21:24
mladen-onlineI used to have flash magic, but that's only for windows or mac21:24
mladen-onlineand I'd like to avoid vine21:24
mladen-onlineany idea ?21:24
mladen-onlinebang ! tough question for a first day !21:25
tmsbrgsorry, i don't flash microcontrollers every day. Actually I never do21:27
tmsbrgwhat I do every day however is type " on top of letters which I'm now unable to due to what seems like an input system bug21:27
mladen-onlineyeah. that's not a funny thing to do. That's understandable21:27
mladen-onlineactually I'm trying to fix a keyboard (for music) : M-audio Axiom Pro 61 keys, that doesn't boot21:29
mladen-onlineMaybe you have ever heard about a small program written in python, called : miniterm.py21:33
mladen-onlineDoes that ring your bell ?21:33
mladen-onlineI saw a guy on youtube, using this to talk to his microcontroller from a linux OS21:35
mladen-onlinebut not really user friendly. That's why I ask on this channel if any of you know a software to program microcontrollers from linux21:36
tmsbrgthe answer to my question apparently was XIM21:44
tmsbrgand installing ibus fixed my bug of not being able to type things like ï with the altgr dead keys input method21:46
Unit193tmsbrg: It used to be shipped by default, but there was some big problems with it.21:48
tmsbrgthere were? I know it used to be, because I used to always use it. Never had problems with ibus myself though21:48
tmsbrgwell except https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1138159 but I solved that21:49
ubottuMozilla bug 1138159 in Widget: Gtk "selecting text with ibus pinyin input method on Xubuntu immediately deletes it" [Normal,New]21:49
tmsbrgmaybe I should report this, but I just installed Xubuntu, and in the install menu I picked US international AltGr dead keys (the best keyboard layout for international programmers), tested it and it worked fine (press altgr+" and then i to get ï, press " to get regular ", no dead key); but then when Xubuntu was installed it broke. Pressing altgr+" wasn't a dead key anymore (and neither was regular "), so I couldn't type ï etc.21:52
tmsbrgjust installed 16.04 that is21:52
