buddermy lubuntu installation failed so i am attempting xubuntu. anyway i can still try out the lxde?00:00
knomewhy did the installation fail?00:01
knomexubuntu and lubuntu use the same core, so it's possible that the xubuntu installation will fail as well00:01
budderafter installation it just said installer has crashed00:01
budderi'm a first time linux user. i installed ubuntu but found it a little too heavy for my system so now i am attempting these flavors00:02
budderhave to restart00:03
budderknome: i'm back00:12
budderit worked00:12
knomehappy to hear00:13
budderBUT... i think i liked the lxde better :/00:13
knomeyou can install the lubuntu desktop experience by running 'sudo apt install lubuntu-desktop' in terminal (note that this does NOT remove the xubuntu-specific packages), then select lxde on login screen00:14
budderis there a write-up or tutorial on that somewhere?00:15
knomeon what?00:15
budderinstalling the lxde00:16
knomei just told you how to do it00:16
budderand UNinstalling the xfce00:16
budderi know but i am new and want to learn what exactly that command does and how it does it. i just want to get a better understanding of everything00:16
knomethe command installs the lubuntu-desktop metapackage and all of its dependencies - namely, lubuntu00:17
bazhang!metapackage | budder00:18
ubottubudder: A meta-package is a package that simply depends upon other packages and brings them in. It's not a real package, but a very useful package that can drag in other package versions.00:18
bazhangbudder, please have a read of the ubuntu wiki, the ubuntu help pages, and the ubuntu manual00:18
bazhang!manual | budder00:18
ubottubudder: The Ubuntu Manual will help you become familiar with everyday tasks such as surfing the web, listening to music and scanning documents. With an emphasis on easy to follow instructions, it is suitable for all levels of experience. http://ubuntu-manual.org/00:18
bazhang!rute | budder00:19
ubottubudder: documentation is to be found at http://help.ubuntu.com and http://wiki.ubuntu.com - General linux documentation: http://www.tldp.org - https://www.andrew.cmu.edu/course/95-799/rute.pdf00:19
budderbazhang: thank you. believe it or not, i have spent many hours on this recently00:20
budderreading through the documentation and help forums and wiki00:20
bazhangbudder, there are many links to read and investigate there00:20
budderyou know how in ubuntu you hold super and brings up the shortcut keys? is there an equivalent for xubuntu?00:21
knomenot at the moment00:21
bazhangbudder, 'how things work' is so broad as to be unanswerable on irc00:21
budderanybody have experience with the cursor jumping?00:23
budderi am typing and the cursos just jumps around on its own00:23
budderthnx for the help all00:25

JohanARI'm having problems booting Xubuntu 16.10 live usb. It shows some kind of icon at the bottom of the screen for a couple of seconds, then it changes to blinking cursor in top left corner and eventually the monitor turns off16:54
JohanARAny ideas? I'm currently running 16.0416:55
JohanARI've tried both mkusb and usb-creator-gtk btw.. If I mount the USB it looks like the regular stuff found an a Linux ISO16:56
krytarik!md5sum | JohanAR17:07
ubottuJohanAR: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM17:07
JohanARchecksum is ok.. but I just noticed that gparted claims the USB stick is 60GB, while it's actually only 1617:09
JohanARgoing to try formatting and using unetbootin17:09
JohanARWell, no luck.. This time I got grub when booting from USB, but regardless of which option I chose the monitor just shuts down after a few seconds17:28
JohanARAnyone successfully booted Xubuntu 16.10 off USB? If so, which method did you use to put the ISO on the USB?17:33
flocculantJohanAR: the ridiculous size shown is a bug - can't remember offhand number - you could try changing the boot option to not use quiet splash, that might help narrow down where it hangs - at the human/kbd symbol press any key - then at the next menu F6 - then escape and you will have the cursor on the boot options - backspace and lose quiet splash - then choose try xubuntu (it looks like http://i.imgur.17:34
flocculantcom/5BjhRS2.png )17:34
JohanARdidn't get that far.. nothing after human/kbd screen.. I have a GTX 970 which I think ought to work without fancy drivers17:36
JohanARthink I'll take a break from that and try again this weekend when I have more time17:38
krytarik!nomodeset | JohanAR17:39
ubottuJohanAR: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter17:39
flocculantkrytarik: looks like gtx970 wants 375.26 but packages.u.c only shows to 36717:41
flocculantJohanAR: ^^17:41
genii!info nvidia-current17:42
ubottunvidia-current (source: nvidia-graphics-drivers-304): Transitional package for nvidia-current. In component restricted, is optional. Version 304.132-0ubuntu1 (yakkety), package size 4 kB, installed size 19 kB (Only available for i386; amd64)17:42
flocculantSo I would suspect boot with nomodeset - install, reboot - add ppa - get driver17:44
JohanARok, thanks18:11
