atomicLUbuntuI'm new to LUbuntu, and I need to mess around with a policy kit so that I can change my wifi adapter. I don't know how to use VIM, and on top of that it doesn't work (q does not quit). I can see the file I need to modify and open it in the GUI Featherpad, but can't save it because Featherpad was not opened with root privileges. The root account is03:13
atomicLUbuntudisabled, and I need to add "atomicpi" to the list.  In Windows, I would right click and run as administrator.  In Linux, I can't do anything.  Yet again.03:13
atomicLUbuntuI'm working off this thread I found: https://dlidirect.com/community/champ/forums/1778-atomic-pi-user-forum/topics/4873-root-password-is-absolutely-required03:13
atomicLUbuntuare there any other text editors included with lubuntu, or just vim?03:14
guivercq is a command prompt for vi/vim; to enter command mode ensure you're not in data entry mode (ie. ESC) then : (enter command) then "q", usually just :q03:14
guivercfrom terminal you could `sudo featherpad /path/file` (ie. use `sudo` to elevate your privileges)03:16
atomicLUbuntuah, right.  Trying that now03:16
guivercI can't speak to GUI (open as admin); I learnt term back before there was 'windows'; VI was great because terms didn't yet have arrow keys... so commands are what i've been doing many many decades03:21
atomicLUbuntuwell, I got that part working, thanks!03:26
atomicLUbuntunext problem.... when watching youtube, when it tries to to 1080p60 or 720p60 I lose video but audio keeps playing03:27
atomicLUbuntuI have no idea where to start looking to fix that.  As you can see, I barely got the OS installed and I'm mroe of a Windows helicopter03:28
guiverccan't help there sorry, if you're patient someone else may know..  I'd start with what video kernel module (driver) is being used & what alternatives exist (`sudo lshw -C video` or list-hardware class=video for what you're using now & hope for clues online maybe, but I don't know sorry)03:30

kc2bezwhat do you need help with?11:36
bibi_Firts of all, i want to connect with others IRC Servers11:38
bibi_Can you send me some servers to login11:41
kc2bezIf you want to join another channel on the same network you are on (freenode) you can use the join button. If you want to join another network you can configure that in the settings under IRC networks.11:41
bibi_I don't know the names of the channels11:43

kc2bezHere is a list of the Ubuntu channels https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList11:44
bibi_Thank you so much11:45
bibi_I am new IRC user11:50
kc2bezif you want a list of all the channels you can use /list and a search window comes up with all of the available channels on your network. You can filter the results in that search window to find whatever topic you are looking for.11:51
bibi_Other IRC Commands?11:55
guiverctry /help11:55
bibi_Nothing appears with /help command11:58
kc2bezMost of the commands are built in to the application so you don't necessarily need them but here is a wikipedia page that has a list https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Internet_Relay_Chat_commands11:59
guivercIt lists commands for me; it must be start of line, my client isn't quassel but I didn't think it was client specific sorry11:59
kc2bezOur manual may also help you get started. You can find the quassel section here https://manual.lubuntu.me/stable/2/2.1/2.1.3/Quassel_IRC.html12:01
kc2bezit looks like /help works if you select the network in the left pane, it probably says ubuntu or freenode12:02
bibi_Ok12:03
bibi_I tried to set up Quassel on Windows, but i cant connect with IRC Core12:55
bibi_I cant connect IRC Core with IRC Client13:01
kc2bezbibi_: I have never tried Quassel on Windows so I can't help much there.13:01
kc2bezYou could try asking in #quassel13:01
bibi_Ok13:02
