Guest56329Xubuntu is great, but I have a small question about its install04:15
Guest56329I had ReactOS (basically a free version of Windows server 2003) on the computer but Xubuntu didnt recognize it as an already installed OS during its own install04:16
Guest56329any reason why this would be? it should recognise it as windows or something similar04:17
LinuxNovicehello, anybody here?07:24
bazhangwhat is the issue LinuxNovice07:28
LinuxNovicehi, is Xubuntu 16.10 as stable as 16.04? Contemplating installing it on my new laptop.07:29
bazhangLinuxNovice, only you can judge that , as everyone has different hardware07:31
bazhangtry a live usb of both, and decide for yourself LinuxNovice07:32
LinuxNoviceok. If I go for 16.10 will upgrading it any newer version be cumbersome?07:32
bazhangread the various ubuntuforums, askubuntu and so on for views on this07:32
LinuxNoviceyour views on this?07:33
bazhangLinuxNovice, why would you imagine it to be cumbersome07:33
LinuxNovicedon't know. Just a newbie, here.07:33
bazhangLinuxNovice, I think you have some confusion on using support channels, and polling people's opinions in the offtopic chat rooms07:34
bazhangin this case #xubuntu-offtopic07:34
LinuxNoviceok. what are the realistic system requirements for Xubuntu 16.10? I mean, for it to be fast, responsive and snappy.07:34
bazhangLinuxNovice, tell us your ideas of fast responsive and snappy, as well as your full system specs07:35
LinuxNovicenow, I am using an old laptop. runs on Celeron M single core 1.6 Ghz cpu and 2 gb ram.07:36
LinuxNoviceUsing Lubuntu 16.04 now.07:36
bazhangthen the fast responsiveness and snappiness will go in one direction from there07:37
LinuxNovicewhat does that mean?07:37
bazhangwhich direction?07:37
bazhanglubuntu is the very lightest07:38
bazhangusing something heavier means07:38
bazhangyou can install xubuntu-desktop package, then select in the login window07:39
bazhangsame with ubuntu, kubuntu, and so on07:39
LinuxNoviceit means Xubuntu is not suitable for this laptop?07:39
LinuxNoviceok. I can try that.07:39
bazhangthat way, you yourself can be the judge of what is and what is not suitable for you, your laptop, and your own personal needs07:40
bazhangno one can else can know that but you07:40
LinuxNoviceok. why Ubuntu differentiates between LTS and the regular versions?07:40
LinuxNoviceis there going to be any significant difference?07:41
bazhangLinuxNovice, have you read of the very basic ubuntu help guides at all07:41
LinuxNoviceI have. But, need some help in making the decision.07:41
bazhanglts or not is not about making a decision, it's about having read the very basic wiki and help pages to know what that means07:42
LinuxNoviceis the regular version something similar to debian testing in debian. While LTS comparable to Debian stable.07:43
LinuxNoviceok. both have the same level of stability?07:43
bazhangI will link you to the very basic help guides07:43
bazhangplease read them in full07:43

bazhangthere are many many links there for you read and follow LinuxNovice07:44
LinuxNovicethanks a lot, guys.07:45
LinuxNovicejust one more question. Is 16.10 suitable for linux beginners?07:46
bazhangLinuxNovice, is today your first day of use, or how long07:47
LinuxNoviceno. have been using 16.04 for a couple of weeks. Less than a month old in Linux.07:47
bazhangLinuxNovice, that depends on your own learning ability, willingness to read the most basic of guides07:48

xubuntu68ihey, do you guys think installing xubuntu "extras" with a mobile hotspot is very costly to my service?11:03
xubuntu68ilike im not gonna spend 2g of data by doing this right?11:04
xubuntu68imy schools wi-fi is crap,11:05
knomenot 2g, but it's not a tiny pakage either11:06
xubuntu68icool, my phone's saying that ive spent 106mb already11:08
xubuntu33iive come here from mint, do you guys think xubuntu is more of a good, full, not-amaturish looking OS?11:17
xubuntu33ii guess ill find out when im done with this install but srl what do you guys?11:18
knomeyou are asking the xubuntu channel... what do you think the answer will be?11:19
knomeanyway, to be exact, whichever you feel is better depends on you only...11:19
xubuntu33iok.. thanks then11:20
StayaSinicmaybe he is troll11:36
arnaldo_Salve come posso installare ettercap su xubuntu 12.04....mi da errore libnet1 non si puo installare12:17
pirxhello! i just installed xubuntu. have found and edited a few keyboard shortcuts. but how can i see in which workspace i am? there is no info-window when i switch between workspaces13:06
jon_hello. i am having a problem with screen flickering on my xubuntu. I searched the usual forums for solutions but didn't find any. Does someone have 5 or 10min time to look at it with me?13:17
jon_i am sorry but does someone know a way how to check if the screen flickering is a hardware problem or a software problem without having to install an other system on it?13:46
flux242jon_: what version have you installed?13:46
flux24216.04 lts?13:47
jon_ubuntu 16.04.113:47
flux242jon_: upgrade to 16.1013:47
jon_ok ty13:47
knomeflux242, how would that fix flickering?13:47
flux242new kernel version13:47
knomejon_, there's unfortunately no way to know what is causing the flickering... where is it occurring?13:48
jon_it flickers and some time it logs out that is why i thought it might be a hardware problem13:48
knomeflux242, usually that doesn't help though13:48
flux242knome: it helped me13:48
knomejon_, is this related to the login screen as you mention logging out?13:48
flux242jon_: you have intel graphics right?13:49
flux242just upgrade then13:49
jon_all the screen becomes black for less then a second13:49
jon_ok i'll try that13:49
jon_knome no but sometimes the screen flickers a bit longer and it logs me out13:50
knomeokay... that makes me think it's not hardware, but who knows... i haven't seen that issue13:50
flux242jon_: or you may use a kernel version up  from 4.813:51
jon_ok thank you13:51
pirxanything i need to do to get a bluetooth headset working in xubuntu? i can pair with the headset, but it fails to connect... (bluetoothd: a2dp-sink profile connect failed for ...: protocal not available)14:57
JustanickHi, are there any improvements for the network manager in 16.10?15:16
xubuntu38wwhere do i find a bootable cd for any linux for an old computer15:39
knomenone of the xubuntu releases that fit on a CD are supported any more, you'll likely want to look for something else15:41
xubuntu38wwhat about a dvd15:41
knomethe recent xubuntu releases will fit on a DVD15:42
knomewhat kind of hardware do you have?15:42
xubuntu38wi cannot use the recent releases i nee dolder version and bootable not iso15:42
knomeISOs will create a bootable DVD15:43
xubuntu38w'they dont for me15:43
knomethen you are likely doing it wrong, or your PC can't boot from the optical drive15:43
geniiWhat is this, some 486?15:43
xubuntu38wyes i can i put linux 8.04 on there15:44
knomeplease tell us what kind of hardware you have so we can assist you15:44
xubuntu38wit is a cd/dvd recorder dont kknow what type15:45
knomehow much RAM does the computer have?15:45
knomethen i'd probably look at something else than xubuntu15:45
xubuntu38wwhat about lubuntu15:46
knomeyou should probably consult the lubuntu channel on the specifics of that - it should be able to run at least, but whether it's usable or not is a different thing15:47
xubuntu38wi cannot find any thing on that and 16 10 ran real slow15:47
knomein that case you'll want to look at something even smaller15:48
flux242do you need a de?15:48
flux242just use command line then15:48
xubuntu38wi cant get the download to work on tht 8.0415:49
xubuntu38wwhat kind of installer do i need on that15:49
knomeplease don't use any 8.04 release, they are all out of support a long time ago15:50
knomeor if you insist on doing that, then acknowledge there will be no support at all15:50
geniixubuntu38w: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Documentation/MinimalInstall15:50
xubuntu38wwell i would use something else if i could find anything with a bootable dvd15:50
knomeand fwiw, all ubuntu releases are distributed by ISOs15:50
knomeeven the 8.04 releases15:51
xubuntu38wi got that and a 13.10 bootable and couldnt find anything else15:51
knomehow are you creating your discss then?15:52
xubuntu38wwith cdburnerxp15:53
geniixubuntu38w: On that page are links to the current minimal images. I'd suggest Xenial 16.04, and probably 32bit x8615:54
xubuntu38won the minimal istall url15:55
xubuntu38wit doesnt work either16:31
lyzeHello! Is there a way to exclude some specific windows from alt+lmb dragging without completely turning off the feature?17:24
knomei don't think so, without modifying the window manager code17:26
lyzeAh thats a bummer x3 Thanks anyway!17:27
