deadromthe bug report page is friggin annoying so I tell you here: Thinkpad T530 on docking station, starting with lid closed sends it into suspend right after start no matter what you tell it in power settings.16:48
Spasshello deadrom, you can look at this thread, maybe you could try some configuration options - https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=1297017:01
Spassmaybe "HandleLidSwitch=ignore" in the /etc/systemd/logind.conf could help?17:02
Spassyou can also try "xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /xfce4-power-manager/logind-handle-lid-switch -s false" or "xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /xfce4-power-manager/logind-handle-lid-switch -s true"17:03
deadromSpass: so I should set that to true to be sure the text file edit takes effect?17:04
Spassfrom what I understand yes, also you can check what setting you currently have by using "xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /xfce4-power-manager/logind-handle-lid-switch" command17:06
deadromwas set to false. gonna try.17:07
Spassand also "HandleLidSwitchExternalPower=ignore" may be needed in logind.conf17:07
deadromin any case I think it ios reasonable to expect the setting in the power settings gui to be authoritative.17:07
deadromSpass: I found that there and set it accordingly, too17:08
deadromat least that gives me some clarity on which screws to tinker with, thanks17:08
Spassno problem, hope that helps or give some hints for other possibilities17:09
deadromSpass: worse now. now goes into suspend 10 seconds after I woke it up no matter what I do. got to keep the lid open.18:13
diogenes_deadrom, what you try to achieve?18:23
deadromdiogenes_: thinkpad on dock goes to suspend or standby when lid closes18:24
diogenes_deadrom, and what is the expected action?18:24
deadromdiogenes_: xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /xfce4-power-manager/logind-handle-lid-switch -s true    and   HandleLidSwitchExternalPower=ignore and HandleLidSwitchDocked=ignore in systemd/login.conf made it worse.18:25
deadromexpect system to stay on18:25
deadromhas 2 ext. displays on docks18:25
diogenes_cat /etc/systemd/logind.conf | nc termbin.com 999918:28
deadromdiogenes_: termbin.com/l7aa18:54
Spassdeadrom, try changing "#HandleLidSwitch=suspend" to "HandleLidSwitch=ignore"18:57
deadromok. cannot test right now. gotta be back later.18:59
Kumoolwhat is the fastest way to lower/raise the volume?19:14
diogenes_Kumool, mousewheel?19:15
KumoolI currently have the pulseaudio plugin for the panel which handles media keys, unfortunately if I press the key multiple times it freezes and lowers the volume after a second19:16
Kumooldiogenes_: that works sometimes19:16
Kumoolthe problem is the media key is actually slower than doing that19:19
KumoolI think its because its forking each time the key is being hit to lower the volume19:20
diogenes_Kumool, as i said mousewheel is much faster.19:20
Kumoolbut I like the button19:20
Kumoolits also handy when you have things in fullscreen19:21
diogenes_you could set a key combination that will increase/decrease the sound with x%19:22
diogenes_with as many precentage as you want, 5 10 1519:22
Kumoolmmm isnt there a daemon that will listen to the key and lower the volume accordingly19:23
KumoolI imagine that should be quite fast19:23
Kumooltheres a xfce4-volumed which points to http://goodies.xfce.org/projects/applications/xfce4-volumed19:26
Kumoolwhich is a 40419:27
Kumool"This is a volume keys control daemon for Xfce Desktop environment. It controls the volume using multimedia keys, for the card configured in xfce4-mixer. It also provides volume change notifications."19:27
Kumoolxfce4-mixer is missing19:27
ondondilKumool, you could use pulseaudio directly19:28
ondondilpactl set-sink-volume @DEFAULT_SINK@ -5%19:28
ondondilpactl set-sink-volume @DEFAULT_SINK@ +5%19:28

Kumoolgreat, lowering and then lowering the volume doesn't make it go crazy19:44
Kumoolthanks ondondil19:44
rapidwaveHow do I set FoxitReader as default PDF reader?20:09
brainwashrapidwave: right-click a pdf file, open with other application, search and pick foxitreader20:10
brainwashor use the MIME type editor20:10
rapidwaveFoxitRreader isn't listed at all20:17
brainwashnot possible to navigate to the location?20:18
rapidwaveNope. It opens Software Center20:19
brainwashdo you have the input field "use a custom command"?20:22
brainwashin the "open with" dialog window20:22
rapidwaveIt lists a lot of software, but not foxitreader20:33
rapidwaveIt might20:33
rapidwaveNo it does not20:33
rapidwaveIsn't there a spot in settings somewhere?20:33
brainwashrapidwave: what spot? I already mentioned the MIME type editor20:55
brainwashdoes foxitreader have a launcher in /usr/share/applications ?20:57
brainwashhow do you start it?20:57
brainwashthen you should create a .desktop launcher for it maybe20:58
brainwashit can be placed in ~/.local/share/applications20:59
brainwashuse the command "exo-desktop-item-edit foxitreader.desktop"21:00
brainwashto create one21:00
rapidwaveWhat should I use as working directory?21:01
brainwashleave it empty I guess21:03
rapidwaveIt still doesn't show in either of those directories, no in the open dialog21:04
brainwashyou have to move the .desktop there21:04
rapidwaveWhere do I findi t?21:04
brainwashprobably in ~/21:05
kadiroanyone can help with systemd21:05
rapidwaveDoesn't appear to be21:06
brainwashkadiro: proper systemd support can be found in #systemd21:06
kadirobrainwash, thanks21:06
brainwashrapidwave: how did you run the command? terminal?21:07
brainwashand what was the current working directory when you executed the command?21:07
brainwash"exo-desktop-item-edit ~/.local/share/applications/foxitreader.desktop"21:10
kadirobrainwash, the channel looks dead21:10
brainwashit has 500 users21:11
brainwashcompared to 120 here21:11
brainwashyou can ask in #ubuntu which should be very active21:12
kadirobrainwash, yeah may be it is not an officiel channel21:12
brainwash#systemd is the official channel21:13
brainwashand the best place for systemd related questions21:13
brainwash(we still don't know what your actual question is)21:13
rapidwaveThe launcher is now in ~/.local/share/applications, but still doesn't show in open dialog21:14
kadirobrainwash, I have a custom service file that seems ignoring one command ( modprobe ) paste.ubuntu.com/p/qdncMt68q5/21:14
rapidwaveWhy doesn't Xubuntu use Ubuntu's tools for this?21:26
rapidwaveIn fact..I'll try to switch over DE and try it that way21:26
deadromSpass: it's ok now. either the reboot or that third thing did the trick. thanks.22:20
Spassgreat to hear22:20
cicdcHello, I've been having a weird issue since I recently updated to 18.10, seems that when I lock the screen, it won't come back. I can use ctrl-atl-f1 to get to the tty then, I sometimes can switch back (which I get the session locked screen) and in a few seconds it does show the login screen, but sometimes I have to unlock the session with loginctl. Is there an easy way to fix this?22:33
