vltHello. How can I lock the screen when MATE (Ubuntu 16.04) is running inside a vnc session initiated by xrdp's session manager?16:28
Akulitry mate-screensaver-command --lock16:37
Akulion a terminal16:37
Akulior alt+f2 box16:37
Akulihi mcnealfam :)16:45
alkisgAnd qodhyuxizsq to you too16:50
vltAkuli: Thank you, I’ll try that.16:56
vltAkuli: The first time I run the command I get a black screen (as expected) but as soon as I move the mouse the desktop is visible again (w/o password prompt).16:59
vltAkuli: The second time I run the command I get "** Message: Screensaver is not running!" on the command line.16:59
Akuliweird 0_o check your screensaver settings17:01
Akulisomewhere in the menu17:01
alkisgMaybe mate-screensaver crashed and you need to manually start it from the command line to see where it segfaults17:05
alkisgPossibly xrdp+vnc doesn't setup the session properly17:06
vltalkisg: termbin.com/vhex17:10
vltThis happens when I run the --lock command in another shell.17:11
vltThe screensaver is set to blank screen.17:11
alkisgRight, so that's the error you want to report17:13
Akulivlt, run LANG=C mate-screensaver-command --lock to get the message in english17:15
Akulimore people will understand it if you report it somewhere17:15
alkisgLANG=en_US.UTF-8 LANGUAGE=en mate-screensaver on one window, and the lock command on the other window17:17
Akulioh the message isn't from the lock command ok17:18
alkisgAlso LANG=C sometimes causes non-ascii errors, C.UTF-8 is better, or en_US.UTF-8...17:20
Akuliyeah usually i'm lazy and i just use C17:21

dialednoob question: How long should I wait for reboot after pulling install media during installation? As I press "enter" the cursor registers by going to the next line over the mate logo screen and the 5 dots continue to loop but nothing seems to happen18:29
dialedapparently a very long time.... Awesome, it just rebooted!!!18:53
Akuliusually i just hold down the power button if something gets stuck at that point18:57
ubottuDon't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/19:11
Kenzohello room20:47
Kenzoi'm looking to do a full install of ubuntu-mate to replace windows. i formatted my disk to have / as primary, /home as primary and then a logical partition as swap area. i got an error about needing a partition for bootloader code??? 'efi boot partition' can this be a logical partition?20:50
Kenzoi have trawled forums. i'm resigning to just make all my partitions logical, i've read so much on it i don't even know why primary options exist20:53
KTradlogical partitions are what you put inside an extended partition. It allows for more than 4 partitions on a disk20:56
KTradAs you are limited to 4 primary partitions per disk20:57
Kenzooh hey. i knew i couldn't have more than four. i've not created an extended partition. not sure i'd know how to. i simply wanted my /home on a separate partition then it got all complicated.20:59
KTradHow many partitions? Just swap, root, and home?20:59
Kenzoyes that's what i intended but when i tried to install it said i needed an EFI system partition21:01
KTradsorry about that idk if you responded21:02
KTradold computer acting up21:02
Kenzono worries. yeah i wanted 3 partitions21:02
Kenzobut when i tried to install it said i needed efi system partition?21:03
KTradoh so your computer uses UEFI then?21:03
KTradYou have 2 options there really21:04
Kenzooh i have options?21:04
KTradenable legacy booting in BIOS/UEFI and boot the install media in MBR/Legacy mode21:04
Kenzoi've enabled legacy mode though i'm unsure how to boot into it to install the media.21:05
KTrador keep EFI booting as default and create an EFI partition. Should be an option in the drop down for formatting21:06
KTradbetween 100-200mb should be plenty in my experience21:06
Kenzoyes i noticed that option. i've heard anywhere up to 1gb. i have a 1tb hdd so happy to choose top bracket. does need to be a primary partition?21:07
KTradwell it doesn't need to be but what I would do is put in the case of your hdd, 500mb EFI primary, 4 - 8GB swap as primary, then extended for the rest and fill that with 100gb for / and the rest for /home21:09
KTrad100gb is overkill for / but can't hurt to have the space21:09
KTradthe / and /home being logical21:10
Kenzoi think i may make EFI primary and the rest logical. but i might not need to do that if i've enabled legacy by the sounds of it?21:11
Kenzothanks, you're way more helpful than the forums i've been trawling!!21:11
KTradif you want to boot legacy then no need for EFI partition just make sure you boot the install media in legacy mode21:12
KTradshould be an option before boot to press F12 or Del (something like that) for boot menu21:12
KTradselect USB/CD legacy instead of UEFI/EFI21:12
KTradthough make sure you repartition the disk in MBR not GPT21:13
KTradand a /boot partition of about 500mb - 1024mb21:13
Kenzowahh. i think i'll just boot with uefi and make the efi partition the rest sounds way complicated!21:14
KTradit can be a bit much that's for sure21:15
KTradespecially if you are unfamiliar with it21:15
Kenzoyeah i am quite, i've only dual booted so far. i think i'll take the plunge. thanks for your help!21:16
