=== brainwash_ is now known as brainwash
StupidDanboI ran some commands without knowing what they would do, and I'm worried. Should I be worried if my Software Updater says "Unused kernel updates to be removed" "Header files related to Linux kernel version 4.15.0" and "Linux kernel headers for version 4.15.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP"?08:00
StupidDanboI got one to add a repository. and "wget -qO - download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/SveSop/xUbuntu_18.04/Release.key | sudo apt-key add -"08:01
StupidDanboand sudo sh -c "echo 'deb download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/SveSop/xUbuntu_18.04/ ./' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/Wine.list"08:01
StupidDanbowould just adding a repository and running those 2 commands do anything harmful?08:02

astraljavaWell, c'mon. Who here doesn't use products without ever consulting their manuals? :D11:15
Noboru55i just wanted to say: i tried pure debian, slacko (puppylinux), others mandriva based linux, but nothing got close to the xubuntu 18.04 in lightweigth X, memory and cpu usage... its perfetc and really beautifull to use as O.S, better with conky, if someone wanna to see it's my desktop15:02
Noboru55thank you for the help, diogenes and others15:02
Noboru55only 462 memory usage playing znes... and only two cpu.... its really faster than windows 10 of course..my printer and scan works right.. and everything i use.. really happy :D15:03
Noboru55i also tried xubuntu 19.10 but only the 18.04 works in good way, the 19.10 sometimes get slow and stuck when copying or move files.. when open browser all get slow.. it doestn happen in 18.04.. lucky till 2023..15:19
lighterowlNoboru55: yes, that's a common issue with 19.10, sadly.15:55
Noboru55lighterowl really? happy in know it, i was thinking it was guilt of my hardware15:57
lighterowlNoboru55: yes, it's related to the kernel. you can still keep using 19.10, but you'd have to change grub's configuration to use the older kernel (which should probably be 4.15 or something).16:14
Noboru55i see.16:15
Noboru55lighterowl thank you, maybe i will try it16:15
lighterowlat least it works for me on my hardware. :)16:17
Noboru55i guess it is related to the kernel too..  i am sure it will work here too..16:19
Noboru55but need to install the 19.10 and later download and do the linux use the kernel of 18.0416:19
Noboru55ii  linux-image-5.3.0-26-generic           5.3.0-26.28~18.04.1                             amd64        Signed kernel image generic16:21
Noboru55maybe they will fix it in xubuntu fossa 2016:24

Charles885476Hi; i have an older version of xubuntu that is quite buggy. I have been trying to up-date to a newer version, but my system seems too buggy to even get started.19:22
Charles885476When i use Software Updater, i get an errior message that says "The Package System is Broken".19:25
Charles885476is there anyone here who can help me?19:25
Alabalisticyou want to update to new release19:26
Alabalisticor just system update19:26
Bashing-omCharles885476: pastebin ' lsb_release -a ; sudo apt update ; sudo apt upgrade '. See what the story here is.19:26
Charles885476Alabalistic; I would like to update to a new release.19:27
Alabalisticsudo do-release-upgrade # is the command.19:29
Charles885476Bashing-om, i an having probs getting access to su or root in my command-line.  My password seems to be being refused.19:29
Charles885476Will boot-up the command-line & try again.19:29
Charles885476thanks, trying suggestions now; ...19:29
Bashing-omCharles885476: awk - see what the command line enables you to do.19:31
Bashing-omCharles885476: try termbin: as in ' sudo apt update 2>&1 | nc termbin.com 9999 '.19:32
Charles885476Alabalistic, my password seemed to allow me to enter your command syntax, but the message i get is "There is no development of an LTS available. To upgrade to the latest non-LTS development release set Prompt=normal in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades."19:34
Charles885476Bashing, will try your syntax19:35
Alabalisticyou use xubuntu, yes and you have 18.419:35
Alabalisticthis is the latest LTS next is April 202019:35
Charles885476Ok, that explains if my version is current.19:35
Alabalisticwhat are your complains19:36
Charles885476but it is still quite buggy & i need some help there.19:36
Alabalisticwhat is the problem19:36
Charles885476My external speakers work fine on my older machine; but on this newer quad-core machine my speakers refuse to function.19:37
Alabalisticbluethoot speaker19:38
Charles885476Pluss; the normal button to log-out of my session does not work; & i have to boot task-manager to kill my session in order to log-out.19:39
Charles885476No, external speakers are hard-wired from the plug-in jack on the side of the laptop.19:39
Alabalisticthis can be some configurations in your home folder. First create a new user and make him administrator19:40
Charles885476Ok; ...; may take a few moments; ...19:40
Alabalisticthen the speaker issue we can see this next19:40
Charles885476My present account was not set as administrator, & i changed that so i am now administrator; but i also created another account where i am administrator.19:46
Alabalisticand can you shut down the system normaly19:47
Charles885476Should i re-boot into the new administrator account, or should we try to make this one work?19:47
Alabalistictry the new, leave the old for now, later you will transfer your personal files and set the permissions19:48
Charles885476Right, Alaba; Will try to shut-down normally now. Will likely be a few moments before i get back here. Thanks much.19:48
Charles8854Hey, Charles 8854 is back here; i just left about 15-minutes ago.20:03
Charles8854I created the new user with admin powers, & am logged in there.20:04
Charles8854I can log-out ok now; but ...20:04
Charles8854but my problems with getting sound to work thru my otherwise functional hard-wired external-speakers is persisting.20:05
Charles8854Nope!!! Cancel That!!! My external-speakers are now working fine!!!20:09
Charles8854You fellas are great!!!20:10
Charles8854My original log-in here was slightly different; so my communications here do not appear continuous.20:11
Charles8854Hi; i have been here recently today, & i got some good advice for curing some problems on my machine.23:22
Charles8854I made back-ups of all of my important filed, copied to an external hard-drive, & i created a new admin account to copy them to.23:24
Charles8854all of my important files were backed-up.23:24
Charles8854But the external hard-drive refuses to allow me to access my files from under my new admin user account.23:25
Charles8854Do any among you have any idea how i can get my old backed-up files to be accessible to me from under my newly-created admin user-account?23:27
well_laid_lawnCharles8854:  is the external drive mounted properly ?23:28
Charles8854Duh, ok, it was un-mounted.23:29
Charles8854And there are all of my files!!!23:30
Charles8854God i love smart people!!!!23:30
Charles8854Thanks much wwlawn!23:30
