player1hi guys19:11
player1I installed lubuntu to an old laptop,but when I boot I see a white screen and I can move cursor,nothing else appears on screen19:12
player1how to fix this?19:12
player1anyone has any idea about my problem?19:14
player1hey guys anyone has lubuntu 18 10+19:17
wxlyou probably have some video problem19:18
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> did you try pressing ctrl+alt+F1 ?19:18
wxllet's try to do some really quick thing.. hit ctrl-alt-f1 then ctrl-alt-f7.. does it help?19:18
player1wxl now i reinstall lubuntu 18.1019:27
player1it takes time19:27
player1should I click control alt F1 or continue install?19:27
wxlwell there's no use bothering with that until you have an install from which to check19:28
wxltests don't produce good results when you mess up all the variables19:28
player1wxl do you know  a good browser for lubuntu 18.10?19:29
player1I used mozilla but it is very slow19:29
player1and video dont play well19:29
wxlit's as fast as any other modern browser19:29
wxlALL modern browsers are ultimately slow because the modern web requires a ridiculous amount of resources19:30
diogenes_player1, try falkon.19:30
player1ok thanks19:30
wxlfalkon is an up and coming solution19:30
diogenes_the best so far.19:30
wxlwe were originally going to include it in 18.10 but had several problems that kept us from doing so19:30
player1when I install lubuntu should I see any message on screen? I see a dark conslole window says Lubuntu installer and nothing appears inside this window19:31
player1is it normal?19:32
wxlit doesn't sound normal19:32
wxlcan you take a picture?19:32
wxlwith a phone maybe/19:33
player1I installed already the lubuntu and I reinstall it19:33
diogenes_player1, what distro had installed prior to lubuntu?19:33
player1lubuntu 18.10 and reinstall 18.1019:34
player1over it19:34
player1I use live dvd19:34
player1to replace partition19:34
diogenes_so lubuntu is the first distro on this hdd?19:34
diogenes_and why did you re-install?19:34
player1because lubuntu 18.10 was showing a white screen and a cursor after reboot19:35
player1and nothing else19:35
player1so I used the live DVD to boot19:35
diogenes_but it did boot in live mode properly?19:35
diogenes_and did it update while installing?19:36
wxldid you check the hashes of the iso? and did you check it for defects when booting?19:36
diogenes_you had internet connection?19:36
player1I didn t have internet so I moved pc somewhere with internet19:36
player1now I pressed install Lubuntu and wait19:36
player1to see what happens19:36
diogenes_player1, install it without internet because some updates might have altered it.19:36
player1I go to eat now19:37
player1ok guys I finished reinstalling20:11
player1now I try to reboot and says many errors20:11
player1I wait to be fixed20:11
wxldid you check the hashes of the iso? and did you check it for defects when booting?20:11
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> Can you send a picture?20:11
player1now I boot20:12
player1I wait and see some messages20:12
player1and wait to boot20:12
wxlplayer1: did you check the hashes of the iso? and did you check it for defects when booting? if you don't answer the questions you're asked, it's hard for us to provide help.20:12
player1what is the hashes20:12
player1the iso is ok20:13
player1Idont know what are the hashes20:13
wxlhow do you know that the iso is ok?20:13
wxlhow did you check it?20:13
player1I installed it20:13
player1and says everything ok20:14
player1but now it says SQUASHFS error: etc etc20:14
wxlthat's not checking it20:14
player1what is squashfs error20:14
player1it says this20:15
wxlnote the warning here:20:15
wxlthat's checking the hashes of the iso20:15
wxland then here is the option to check the disc for defects:20:16
wxlas the warning says, ONE BIT of variation can lead to all sorts of weird problems no one else has (and no one else has squashfs errors)20:16
player1I used same image I think to another pc20:17
player1I am not sure if it was the same20:17
wxlthat means little20:17
player1but live dvd boots ok without any problems20:18
player1now i try to boot without live dvd20:18
wxlthat means little20:18
player1to see20:18
player1I wait to boot20:18
player1same problem a white screen20:18
wxlfollow the instructions to check the iso and to check the media20:18
player1and a mouse cursor20:18
wxldo that first20:18
player1I dont think I have an iso file I burned it to liveDVD and deleted it20:19
player1maybe if I search20:20
wxlyou can at least do the check disc for defects20:20
player1wxl I did chkdsk and said found no errors20:23
wxlplayer1: you mean you booted the image and selected "check disc for defects?"20:23
player1from live dvd20:24
player1I choosed20:24
player1check disk for defects20:24
player1and said no errors found20:24

player1without prompt20:27
player1it is an underscore blinking20:27
player1and no text20:27

player1is there a way to install latest linux kernel for 32bit by command line?20:42
player1ok it downloads a lot of missing packages, maybe it will work later20:44
player1I will wait to finish20:45
player1the control alt f2 was the solution20:45
player1wxl there was a message and said continue without installing grub and I pressed ok, is it good or bad not to install grub?21:00
player1in fact I wanted to install grub but i pressed ok21:01
player1I didnt know how to choose different21:01

=== cyphase- is now known as cyphase
wxlplayer1: do you know how to add kernel parameters in grub?21:31
player1no I could not install grub21:32
player1I pressed ok continue without install grub21:32
wxlum well then it wouldn't boot at all X'''''''D21:32
wxlanyways when you're booting hold down shift and see if you don't get to a grub screen21:32
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> Mostly he won't right. He selected to not install grub. Or is there any magic going on here? XD21:33
wxlso what bootloader is there going to be? the magic wizard gandalf maybe21:34
player1I will reboot21:35
wxlwhoa https://github.com/sddm/sddm/issues/37621:35
lynorianrebooting without a bootloader is not a good idea21:35
player1wxl I have a grub screen21:36
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> @wxl [<wxl> so what bootloader is there going to be? the magic wizard gandalf maybe], I would prefer dumbledore21:36
wxlplayer1: great :) so do you know how to add kernel parameters?21:36
player1no what should I type21:37
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> @player1 [<player1> wxl I have a grub screen], Woah! The magic of walter!! Everyone. Bend the knee.21:37
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> @player1 [<player1> no what should I type], There should be instruction to edit the commands. I guess you will have to press e21:37
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> Then add 'nomodeset' before --quiet. Without inverted commas.21:38
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> @wxl [<wxl> https://askubuntu.com/questions/19486/how-do-i-add-a-kernel-boot-parameter], Yeah follow this. Easier.21:39
wxloh this one is even better https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions21:39
player1wxl grub has 4 options21:41
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> 4? Is your system in dual boot?21:42
player1*Ubuntu    Advanced Options for Ubuntu  MemTest86+, memtest86+,serial console 11520021:43
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> Can you name which is the 3rd option?21:43
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> Ohh okay. Fine.21:43
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> Edit the 1st option.21:43
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> @wxl [<wxl> oh this one is even better https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions], Follow this.21:43
player1wxl I pressed e and I am stack what do I type next21:46
player1I dont know how to continue21:47
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> Stuck? Can't you edit lines of the option?21:50
wxlGo down to the line starting with linux and add: nomodeset21:51
player1wait a little because I pressed reboot and I must return to grub21:54
player1I cannot catch grub it goes to lubuntu fast21:56
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> try again :)21:56
wxljust reboot and bash shift21:56
player1ok I am in grub22:01
player1pressed e22:01
player1then where do I type nomodeset22:01
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> @wxl [<wxl> Go down to the line starting with linux and add: nomodeset], now this.22:01
wxlat the end22:01
player1after quiet splash res etc?22:02
player1I typed nomodeset in the end of line22:03
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> yup! fine22:03
player1now what do Ido22:03
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> now boot it. There must be instruction at bottom22:04
player1control x?22:04
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> yeah!22:04
player1ok I pressed control x and wait to reboot22:04
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> see if this gives also gives white screen22:05
player1this logins22:06
player1goes to login screen22:06
player1now how to fix my resolution?22:06
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> That's it then. but you will have to make the change permanent. wxl will tell you how to do it.22:07
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> @player1 [<player1> now how to fix my resolution?], There must be an option in monitor settings for fixing resolution.22:07
player1ok I think nomodeset was the problem22:13
player1the solution I mean22:13
player1now if I reboot it will be lost?22:14
wxlno let's make it permanent22:14
player1oh I rebooted again and I lost nomodeset22:15
wxlyou have to make it permanent22:15
wxlit's ok22:15
player1I must reboot again with nomodeset22:15
wxlyou don't HAVE to22:15
wxlyou could also go to ctrl-alt-f2 at the white screen to do what we need to do22:15
player1I m in terminal now22:15
wxlone second22:16
wxlgood we ship nano22:16
wxlso do this:22:16
wxlsudo nano /etc/default/grub22:16
wxlthat should open up a file22:16
player1ok I am in22:17
wxlgo to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line22:17
wxland add nomodeset to the end22:17
wxlso you should have something like:22:17
wxlGRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"22:17
player1nomodeset before resume?22:18
wxlor after22:18
player1ok I added in the end22:19
wxlnow hit ctrl-x22:19
wxlit will ask you if you want to save.. say yes22:19
wxlthen run:22:19
wxlsudo update-grub22:19
wxland when that's done:22:19
wxlsudo shutdown -r now22:19
player1now how can I see my native resolution and set it as default?22:22
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> just go to monitor settings and change there.22:23
player1where are the monitor settings?22:23
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> in the menu at the bottom left22:24
player1ok I ll try to find22:24
lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> @wxl [<wxl> https://manual.lubuntu.me/3/3.2/3.2.10/monitor_settings.html], This link will be helpful22:25
player1is there any command line way22:25

lubot<The_LoudSpeaker> Also player1 don't always keep asking everything bro. Just google up a bit you will find all your answers. Not meaning that don't come to this chat but try to workout small things language and resolutions on your own sometimes. It's fun.22:35
