marcosferminHello guys. I just installed Ubuntu MATE on a MacBook Pro and configured GRUB. Has any of you done it? I would like to share some thoughts about the experience07:16
diogenes_grub should be configurred automatically07:30
marcosfermindiogenes_: Yes, but not automatically recognized by the laptop itself07:40
marcosferminbecause of the EFI sector that OS X allocates07:40
marcosferminIt hides the GRUB07:41
marcosferminand Linux comes first07:41
marcosferminSo I disable that hiding of GRUB07:42
diogenes_oh it's on macbook, ok07:42
vltHello. How can I create a clickable icon on the desktop that will run /my/shell_script.sh on Ubuntu 16.04 MATE?08:13
marcosferminvlt: Yes you can08:14
marcosferminGet the code from any .desktop file08:15
diogenes_vlt, the easiest way is to use libremenu application08:15
marcosferminand change the path (and icon) with yours08:15
vltmarcosfermin: Thanks, I'll try to find one.08:15
diogenes_or use alacarte too08:15
vltdiogenes_: Neither a `libremenu` nor an `alacarte` command is found :-/08:16
diogenes_vlt, sudo apt install libremenu08:17
diogenes_and sudo apt install alacarte08:17
diogenes_there you can even specify the category you want your shorcut to be placed08:17
vltmarcosfermin: I have not a single *.desktop file in my ~ to copy from :D08:17
marcosferminvlt: google is your friend ;)08:18
vltOk, I found an example on https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/.desktop-Dateien/   When I use this the target script is executed (I checked that by inserting a `touch file` command) but I don't see the expected output: an rdesktop login screen.08:25
vltAny idea how to do that?08:25
vltWhen I open a terminal window (ctrl+alt+t, for example) and run the script it works fine and I get rdesktops's login screen as output. When clicking the .desktop file I don't get that window.08:42
vltThis is the .desktop file: http://termbin.com/bcxv08:42

lenovohelpHello all.  Can anyone help me with an issue regarding a Lenovo Yoga 2 11?18:28
ubottuNous sommes desoles mais ce canal est en anglais uniquement. Si vous avez besoin d'aide ou voulez discuter en français, veuillez taper /join #ubuntu-fr ou /join #ubuntu-qc. Merci.18:29
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience18:29
lenovohelpOh, okay.  Got it.  Sorry, new to the whole IRC thing.  I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 11, with no HDD.  I was an idiot and booted a Ubuntu MATE 17.10 LiveUSB and now I can no longer boot from anything else besides this usb stick.  I think it has to do with that bug a few weeks back.18:30
lenovohelpNo idea if the re-release of the 17.10 ISO will fix it or not but I'm about to try it.18:31
diogenes_lenovohelp, it will definitely be fixed but that means that the fix will affect only the future installations unfortunately it can't fix the already damaged machines18:32
diogenes_if it's a new laptop then you might consider returning and asking for refund18:33
lenovohelpI did read something about creating a partition with persistence, and from there installing and booting a new kernel.  Have you heard anything about that?18:33
lenovohelpWell it's a second-hand machine and I really don't need it, but I'd hate to throw away good hardware.18:34
diogenes_another way is to take your drive out of your lenovo machine, put it into another machine a working one, install linux there then place the drive back\18:34
