motaka2I am using lubuntu 16.04. Since 3 hours ago that I restarted my laptop, none of my usb ports work. for example my mouse does not work. but usb thetering works. Does any one know how I can fix this?06:16
guivercmotaka2, Lubuntu is a flavor of Ubuntu, as such it only comes with 3 years of support; 16.04 LTS is EOL, so you should release-upgrade ASAP.  (kylin in 16.04 had 5 years, there are exceptions on occasion)06:20
tomreyn!crosspost | motaka206:20
ubottumotaka2: Please don't ask the same question in multiple Ubuntu channels at the same time. Many helpers are in more than one channel and it's not fair to them or the other people seeking support.06:20
guivercthanks tomreyn , I hadn't noticed..06:21
guivercmotaka2, 16.04 Lubuntu release statement - https://lubuntu.me/xenial-released/  "supported until April 2019, with three years of support."06:22
tomreynguiverc: that's why i'm pointing it out ;)06:22
brunch875Hi! Giving lxqt a shot. I'm trying to change alt-click to super-click to handle windows. I modified .config/openbox/lxqt-rc.xml but it seems the "global actions manager" shortcuts (which handle the sound volume hotkeys) are capturing the super key before it reaches those binds08:40
brunch875Does anyone have experience with this?08:40
lynorianyes that is the case08:40
brunch875Is it then possible to do what I want to do without unbinding super for the launcher menu?08:41
lubot<lynorian> @brunch875 [<brunch875> Hi! Giving lxqt a shot. I'm trying to change alt-click to super-clic …], I honestly think changing ti from super would proably be easiest if you want super in openbox stuff08:42
brunch875hmmm guess I could change the launcher from super to ctrl-super :s08:43
brunch875hmmm not really working out. Does the global actions manager have some configuration files?08:47
brunch875aha found it .config/lxqt/globalkeyshortcuts.conf09:03

lutinmalinis this the right place to ask for help?10:49
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 !patience10:50
lutinmalinI installed the latest Lubuntu and after going into the settings and enabling battery monitoring, I get a message saying Lxqt power management doesn't find any battery. I'd appreciate some help.10:53
tomreynlutinmalin: your hardwares' sensors or acpi data could not be access entirely. how to proceed can depend on the hardware you have there.10:59
tomreynlutinmalin: i suggest you look into lm-sensors and its sensors-detect script as well as into laptop vendor specific software packages such as tlp, and also check your systemd journal for warnings and errors.11:01
=== pascal is now known as Guest96839
=== Guest96839 is now known as Lutinmalin
Lutinmalin@tomreyn thanks for the tips. lshw detects the battery, but that's the only one. Here's the related systemd entry:   ofonod[972]: enum_devices_reply: no battery detected11:58
Lutinmalinmy laptop is an HP tablet pc12:00
LutinmalinI installed lm-sensors and ran sensors-detect, but I don't see anything about battery. the only thing found is an "intel digital thermal sensor".12:05
LutinmalinBefore that, I tried Fedora 30. It was too heavy for my laptop but the battery monitoring worked fine. Any way I can import the Fedora software on Lubuntu?12:11

WiseMonkHello guys, i have created new user on lubuntu 18.04 and now it asks me for keyring password  when I connect to wifi14:15
WiseMonkhow can I set it to use the login keyring instead?14:15
WiseMonkI starte from terminal vial "seahorse" command,it doenst list a login keyring14:20
tomreynquote from #ubuntu: <WiseMonk> lotuspsychje I just solved the problem, by creating an admin-user instead of desktop-user, seems to be a bug in Lubuntu 18.0414:42
WiseMonkyeah seems like creating a "Desktop user" doesnt set him to use the login keyring for network passwords by default. both creating by gui settings and by adduser14:48

xrandrHi. I currently have Ubuntu 19.04, but want to do a fresh install of Lubuntu 19.04 on my laptop via USB stick.  How do I burn the ISO to USB?22:40
xrandrnevernmind, found startup disk22:41
kc2bezxrandr: Startup disk creator should work well.22:42
xrandrYep. Using it  ;)22:42
xrandrwaiting for it to complete22:42
kc2bezEnjoy :)22:43
lubotxrandr was added by: xrandr22:47
xrandrbrb -- installing22:48
xrandrHello. I just installed Lubuntu on my laptop. I can't log in to it.  It just freezes at the login screen23:04
xrandrWhat can I do?23:05
kc2bezYou can try a CTRL-ALT-F3 to see if it takes you to a command prompt.23:06
kc2bezTechnically an alternate TTY https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/167386/how-to-switch-between-tty-and-xorg-session23:08
xrandrjust frozen23:09
xrandrlemme reboot and see if i can23:09
kc2bezOk, out of curiosity what do you have for a system?23:09
xrandrHP ZBook23:10
xrandrI do have the filesystem encrypted23:10
xrandrEven after rebooting and not entering the user's password, and hitting ctrl alt f3, it freezes23:11
xrandrI re-downloaded the ISO, and burning it back to USB. Going to try a re-install and not encrypt the filesystem23:13
kc2bezWeird. By any chance did you check the hashes on the iso?23:13
xrandrNo, i didn't. I am re-downloading it now23:13
kc2bezIt is best to check the hashes. The image may install but if it is even 1 bit off you will get odd results.23:14
xrandrShould I not encrypt the filesystem?23:20
kc2bezEncryption should work fine.23:21
xrandrcan I encrypt the filesystem post-install?23:22
xrandrok. Let me see if this works without encryption first, then I'll re-install again with encryption and see what happens23:22
kc2bezSounds good.23:23
xrandrSame issue23:26
xrandrHow do I check the hash?23:26
xrandrkc2bez: how do i check the hash?23:28
kc2bezThis section in our manual goes over that https://manual.lubuntu.me/1/1.1/retrieving_the_image.html#downloading-the-image-via-http23:28
xrandrok, the hash matches23:33
xrandrBeginning to think I should just use regular ubuntu, and re-install lxde23:33
xrandrThank you anyway :)23:40
