MeadI run Lubuntu off a SD as my only linux machine in the house. It didn't come back after a restart.  How do I determine if the SD card is physically borked or if the data is stores just got borked?14:52
lubot<teward001> no error messages on bootup?15:27
tewardMead: no errors on startup?15:31

lubot<JyotiGomes> Hi, in my school I was given the task of installing Linux on about 15 i3 computers with 4 GB of RAM. This system installation should be maintained over the years, with updates and upgrades with no more fresh installations beyond this first. Do you advise me to install Ubuntu or Lubuntu?16:47
diogenes_JyotiGomes, it depends on the purpose and the specs of the computers16:50
diogenes_there were rumors that ubuntu is going to be supported for 10 years16:50
lubot<JyotiGomes> @diogenes_ [<diogenes_> JyotiGomes, it depends on the purpose and the specs of the computers], The room would be used by high school students and adult students, trainees of a training center.16:53
lubot<JyotiGomes> One of my doubts is if with these characteristics (processor i3 and 4 gb of ram) the computers would work well with Ubuntu16:55
acheronukLubununtu 18.04 is supported until April 2021. Ubuntu 18.04 until 202316:55
lubot<teward001> @JyotiGomes they'd play well with Lubuntu probably.16:56
lubot<teward001> diogenes_: that rumor is IIRC meaning with ESR coverage from Ubuntu Advantage, not straight up.16:56
acheronukYes, the 10 years until 2028 is ESM: https://i.imgur.com/Od68wTd.png16:58
acheronukand as yet, the packages supported has not been confirmed16:59
acheronukmost likely it will just be server/cloud things16:59
tewardand/or Main stuff16:59
teward(possibly desktop Main stuff for Ubuntu base via security updates but)16:59
lubot<JyotiGomes> And as I personally like Lubuntu more, the temptation to install Lubuntu is great. But I have to think not so much in my personal preferences but in the general interest and the ease of other people who know linux even less than I, even if I quit school next year, have to do the updates and upgrades, the ease of working out-of-the-16:59
lubotbox, installing drivers, etc.16:59
acheronukdesktop support is not very likely16:59
lubot<JyotiGomes> I would like to install an LTS, but as far as Lubuntu is concerned I would like to install Lubuntu LXQt, which makes the decision complex :-)17:02
lubot<JyotiGomes> It is not every day that we have the possibility to install Linux on 15 or more computers at once ... 😊17:08
lubot<JyotiGomes> Do you think that the computers with these characteristics (processor i3 and 4 gb of ram) would work well with Ubuntu? I do not know which graphics card the computer have.17:11
lubot<teward001> with *Ubuntu*?  Not if you intend 18.04+17:12
lubot<teward001> Lubuntu, it'd work fine.  but not pure Ubuntu17:12
lubot<teward001> *might* work with MATE, but that's going offtopic for this space :P17:12
lubot<JyotiGomes> @teward001 [Lubuntu, it'd work fine.  but not pure Ubuntu], Why not the pure Ubuntu?17:14
lubot<teward001> 'cause GNOME is evil17:21
lubot<teward001> and has a lot more heavy reqs than Unity17:21
lubot<teward001> Unity and LIghtDM*17:21
lubot<teward001> we have a number of systems with i3s and 4GB RAM here with meh graphics cards, Ubuntu 18.04 lags on them17:21
lubot<teward001> so we threw Lubuntu 18.04 on them, with intention to upgrade to 20.04 in a year or so :P17:21
lubot<JyotiGomes> @teward001 [so we threw Lubuntu 18.04 on them, with intention to upgrade to 20.04 in a year …], I would prefer install Lubuntu 18.10 😊17:29
lubot<teward001> i mean you COULD17:29
lubot<teward001> you'll just have to upgrade in 6 months :P17:30
lubot<JyotiGomes> No proble, if it will be possible to upgrade Lubuntu without fresh installs17:42
lubot<JyotiGomes> Hi! how can i change, on Lubuntu 18.10, the user password or even change the login session to start without password?21:26
lubot<HMollerCl> I't not documented in the manual?21:30
wxlit's lxqt-admin-user as seen https://github.com/lxqt/lxqt-admin for changing passwords21:31
wxlfor starting without a password, you have to tweak sddm which does not have a gui (yet)21:33
lubot<JyotiGomes> @wxl [<wxl> for starting without a password, you have to tweak sddm which does not hav …], Thanks21:40
