ballIf the installer doesn't offer me sda and I know the disk is good, is it likely there's a mainboard problem (SATA port etc.)?  I haven't tried a different SATA cable yet.00:23

silkairwaysHello is anyone in at the moment?03:09
ballSort of.03:12
silkairwaysI had a question03:12
* ball waits for the question03:12
silkairwaysWhen i click save session and shut down.  I turn back on and only the web browser comes back open03:13
silkairwaysOther apps do not re open upon restart with saved session03:13
silkairwaysIs that normal?03:13
* ball shrugs03:13
ballNo idea.  I don't run Xubuntu.  I could test it on my daughter's PC.03:15
ballI did actually try installing Xubuntu today but it didn't work.03:15
ball(probably because of a hardware issue)03:15
silkairwaysOh it was on ubuntu studio they said ppl here might know03:16
ballThey're right.03:16
ballOther people though.03:16
Unit193I too do not use that feature, but you could possibly try clearing out old sessions and see if saving a new one helps.03:17
Eickmeyersilkairways: See https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/dzZcRF7dWQ/03:18
EickmeyerWe talked about it a bit after you left.03:18
ballTrying it again now...03:20
silkairwaysOkay cool thank you Eickmeyer03:29
silkairwaysI will check that out03:30
silkairwaysIs it safe to say the feature should be opening all the open programs upon reboot?03:30
EickmeyerThat I couldn't tell you.03:30
ballI might try I may try Dingo instead.  Perhaps that's what I did wrong.03:31
silkairwaysAnybody know how i could find the sessions to clear?03:32
silkairwaysSorry ball im not sure what dingo is.  Part of the xubuntu install?03:33
silkairwaysI found it under setting sessions and startup03:34
silkairwaysI think this will clear up my issues. I thought it worked autonomously but as with everything linux it has a bunch of awesome features and settings of its own03:35
Eickmeyersilkairways: dingo (disco dingo) was the codename for 18.04.03:36
ballEickmeyer: I thought that was 19.04?03:36
silkairwaysOh right! Disco dingo03:36
silkairwaysThat's what is installed on my hdd03:36
Eickmeyerball: Typo. :P03:36
ballEickmeyer: Those happen.03:36
ballEickmeyer: ...just wanted to make sure I wasn't downloading something older than LTS03:37
EickmeyerUsually we refer to the codename by the first part if being short. So, you'll hear Disco referred to more than Dingo.03:37
ballSorry.  I'm not really a Linux person so I guessed. ;-)03:37
silkairwaysI thin 19.04 is disco dingo 18.10 cosmic cuttlefish 18.4 bionic beaver03:38
EickmeyerThat's correct, silkairways.03:39
silkairwaysI have bionic beaver on my hdd and disco dingo on my usb stick for my side business03:39
ballI'm downloading Disco Dingo now03:40
ballDidn't have any luck with Bionic Beaver.03:40
silkairwaysWhere are you trying to install? In a vm? On a hdd?03:41
ballOn a hard disk.03:44
ballOn an i3 desktop03:44
ball...for reasons ;-)03:45
silkairwaysOh i see03:47
ballThe installer boots but it can't see the hard disk to install to.03:47
silkairwaysI have 18.04 on an embarrassingly old laptop with the processor is probably much worse03:47
silkairwaysIt have the machine new life and now it is my security cameras server03:48
silkairwaysI hate this keyboard03:48
ballIP cameras?03:49
ballPerhaps I'm supposed to run some sort of partitioning tool prior to installation but ...I don't know03:50
silkairwaysYes ip cameras03:50
silkairwaysOh wow my processor actually comes out ahead vs i3 3217U on cpuboss.com03:52
ballNot sure that's a reliable site.  The folks in ##hardware would know.03:55
silkairwaysIt's not very important04:05
silkairwaysJust surprised they even comparable04:06
silkairwaysAnd for my saved session questions those programs i was looking for are not in the list available to save the session so i will try to just add them to startup04:08
silkairwaysGtg c y'all later04:17
ballGoodnight silkairways04:18
silkairwaysGoodnight ball04:18
ballGoodnight everyone!04:20
ballWell, I should have gone to bed but I didn't.04:51
ball...and 19.04 is doing the same thing that 18.04 did (not offering sda as an installation target)04:52
diogenes_ball, what you trying to do?04:56
balldiogenes_: Install Xubuntu04:56
ball(onto a blank disk)04:56
diogenes_do you have multiple hdds?04:57
balldiogenes_: Not on this machine.04:57
diogenes_ball, new hdd? how old is it?04:59
ballTested HD.  Under three years old.  Passes SMART and other tests.05:00
diogenes_tried to start with a new partition table in gparted?05:01
diogenes_pick gpt for efi05:02
diogenes_msdos for mbr05:02
balldiogenes_: I haven't seen that offered by the installer.  I suppose I could boot to the live image and look for it there.05:03
ballShouldn't the installer be able to handle a blank disk though?05:05
diogenes_ball, try with gparted.05:06
* ball lookds for it.05:06
Unit193`lsblk` find it, I presume?05:07
balldiogenes_: That worked, though it called MBR "msdos"05:13
ball...which is stupid.05:13
ball...and didn't offer to create a partition in the installer.05:13
diogenes_ball, so everything's fine now?05:14
ballAppears so.05:15
ballWe'll see whether it's bootable once the installation completes.05:15
ballLooks like it'll take a while to install. I'll test it in the morning before I go to work, hopefully.05:16
balldiogenes_: I appreciate the help. Thanks!05:17
diogenes_ball, you're welcome.05:17
ballOh it's done!  That was quick.05:20
ball...and it boots.05:23
ball...with that, I'm off to bed. :-)05:24
Unit193gparted unmounts stuff, not sure if ubiquity does but I thought so.05:34

xubuntu73wOperating 18.04 from cd operated at 1024x748 on my Amilo-Pro V2030, so I downloaded it becayse Mint only worked at 640x480. But downloaded Xubunto also only worked at 640x480! Setting shows no other resolution. How do I get the downloaded version to use higher resolution like the CD version does?11:14
bluesabrexubuntu73w: Click on the apps menu, type in "display" and select it, then choose a higher resolution11:15

xubuntu56wcan anyone help me with setting properties using xfconf-query on xubuntu 18.04.2?14:18
Spassxubuntu56w, what do you want to change? did you see this wiki? https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfconf/xfconf-query14:21
xubuntu56wi want to change the properties lid-action-on-battery and lid-action-on-ac, i did see the wiki and it did not help. whenever i run the command it says that the property does not exist on the channel14:24
Spassyou mean "xfce4-power-manager" channel? I don't see those properties on my machine in that channel, so if you need you may add them14:27
Spasscreate them14:28
xubuntu56wthat's what i initially thought. i issued "xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /xfce4-power-manager/lid-action-on-ac -n -t int -s 1" yet the property remains unchanged14:30
Spasstry "xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /lid-action-on-ac -n -t bool -s true"14:32
Spassno, sorry14:32
Spassyou need int for that14:32
Spassso "xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /lid-action-on-ac -n -t int -s 1"14:32
SpassI think that "/xfce4-power-manager/" after -p was unnecessary in your command14:33
Spasswell, to be sure I'm not really sure what type do you need for that property, where did you get info about adding that property?14:36
Spass(maybe it shows only on laptops, that's why I don't see it on my PC)14:37
xubuntu56wi ran xfconf-query in monitor mode and fiddled around with the settings and that's what i got if that's what you're asking14:37
xubuntu56wokay, i tried "xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /lid-action-on-ac -n -t int -s 1" and the default action for closing the lid on ac is still "lock screen" and not "suspend"14:39
Spassdoes it change when you change 1 to 2? with this "xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /lid-action-on-ac -s 2"14:41
xubuntu56wit does not14:41
SpassI'll take a look at that on my laptop, one moment14:42
xubuntu56wit does work if i manually open the power manager, change the settings there and then enter "xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /xfce4-power-manager/lid-action-on-ac -s 1" into the terminal14:42
Spass_laptopit works on my laptop "xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /xfce4-power-manager/lid-action-on-ac -s 3"14:49
Spass_laptopI can change it to 0. 1 or 3 (2 is blank on my laptop)14:49
xubuntu56wdid you manually change the settings through xfce4-power-manager gui before?14:49
Spass_laptopand it makes change in GUI, but I need to reopne the settings window to see the changes14:49
xubuntu56wi noticed that changing the settings using the terminal does work, but you need to change them using the gui first14:51
Spass_laptopI've changed for AC in GUI, because the property wasn't present before14:51
Spass_laptopyeah, same observation14:51
Spass_laptopproperty wasn't there until I've changed in GUI to some other option, that created the property14:51
xubuntu56wand if you create it manually it doesn't do anything14:52
Spass_laptopand now I can see the property and change to whatever I want using xfconf-query (or in GUI)14:52
Spass_laptopok, will try to delete it and create without GUI14:52
Spass_laptopyeah, when I created it using xfconf-query the property was added, but changes weren't visible in GUI14:55
Spass_laptopand after one change in GUI it starts working14:56
xubuntu56wso i guess it's a bug14:58
Spassif you used my incorrect command I suggested on the beginning, you can delete that property using "xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /lid-action-on-ac -r -R"14:59
Spassyeah, bug or some behaviour I don't really understand, maybe xfce devs would help with explaining that15:00
xubuntu56wshould i file a bug report then?15:01
Spassnot sure, but it would not hurt, maybe here? https://bugzilla.xfce.org/buglist.cgi?component=Xfconf-query&list_id=47041&product=Xfconf&resolution=---15:19
Spassor maybe it's strictly a Xfce Power Manager thing... another option is asking on #xfce-dev I suppose15:20
xubuntu56wthe bugzilla already has a bug report that is similar in behavior to what i'm experiencing15:21
nokiomanzHi, I have my desktop connected to a 4K TV via HDMI as my main monitor. I set the desktop to 1080p. But upon Closing/opening the television  on the next day or a few hours later it is as if the display is "redetected" and resolution is set to 4k. What can I do to make it stick to 1080p? If I close the television and open it a few minutes later it is still at 1080p.17:51
