akkotomreyn: latest00:00
akkojust downloaded it and installed it00:00
Unit193`lsb_release -a` if you don't know.00:01
akkoi can barely watch youtube videos XD00:01
akkobut it won't get any better i guess00:01
Unit193..Not that it helps, but mpv+youtube-dl could help with youtube videos specifically.  OK, yeah that's not at all the latest. :)00:01
akkoyea XD00:01
akkoits the one i downloaded from xubuntu.com00:02
akkowatching it with mpv would help but i don't think i'll be able to teach a 60yo how to do that XD00:03
Unit193Fair point, I missed that bit.00:03
akkoim not sure what she plans on doing with this tbh, but wew00:04

doubledutchGood evening03:21
doubledutchI'm apparently a Xubuntu user now and I absolutely love it.03:21
doubledutchI've been linux'ing for about 22 years03:21
doubledutchI had a small set of requirements for a project - figured since the HDD in my laptop is the same as something we will be using for the project, it would be perfect...03:22
doubledutchThere were some contenders, but Xubuntu being 32-bit (18.04), able to see mmc storage, able to see our scratchbuilt wireless cards flawlessly, just works03:23
doubledutchThanks all03:23
akko if you don't need support i think you'd be better off sharing your experiences in #xubuntu-offtopic XD03:23

xu-help64wHello, I'm having a problem with the lock screen....it keeps locking me out after two minutes even though the settings are set to "never"06:17
xu-help64wCan anyone help me out?06:19
jarnosI wonder why xfce4-screensaver is started even if I have unselected it in Sessions and Startup dialog in 20.04?08:11
brainwashjarnos: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1622308:20
jarnosOk, so developers took away possibility to choose which of the installed screensavers to use and press to use the buggy xfce one.08:38
brainwashjarnos: if it is buggy, you can uninstall it08:51
brainwashor disable locking via xfce4-screensaver settings08:51
jarnosbrainwash, disabling does not help in this case. Yes I can uninstall that, but then I am not notified about its updates.08:59

KrockHello everyone. Until 20.04, Thunar 1.6.x had alternating row colours: https://i.imgur.com/VQGPFcE.png - was this removed in version 1.8.x? I cannot find any documentation about this11:05
KrockThere's also no setting in xfce4-settings-editor11:06

Krockdiogenes_: okay, will try my luck there. Thanks! :)11:11

TomKAm trying to install on HD on an old Compaq DesktopSR1265CL.  Boots from USB into live session fine.  Seems to install on HD fine.  But won't reboot from HD.  I tried boot repair process and making /dev/sda partition bootable with fdisk..no luck...can someone guide me through the proper troubleshoot on MBR?13:49
kgbTomK: yeah, old computers and xEFI vs. BIOS13:55
kgbhave you tried your luck with an older LTS build maybe13:56
kgbbc otherwise to "fix" this would be a huge pain (as it should work and when it doesn't it can be 1 of 300 things, meh)13:57
kgbstart from the start and see if you have like the master jumper set on the hdd13:58
TomKthank you KGB...when the system boots, if you go into setup,  the bios allows selection to boot from the HDD, or the CDROM, or the USB if its plugged in.  I've done the HDD install, so I remove the USB and it boots from the HDD to a blank screen and flashing cursor.  If I boot from the USB, it loads a live session and give the try or install screen. If I abort at that point, it loads anyway...All this leads me to believe the HDD has the14:32
TomK system installed, but the problem is in the MBR.   fdisk -l shows the primary partition but says its not bootable.14:32
TomKThis is an old PC  circa -2004.  I'd think some kind of Grub install, config and partition flag could fix but, I'm hardly an expert14:34
TomKNext step:  if no more suggestions I'll try an earlier version...14:34
kgbTomK: yeah, gotcha.. just, old hardware - i mean, how long has IDE been out of the equation.. i don't know, maybe give it a whirl: http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/14:34
kgbit's the way everything is packed into the kernel, who knows what the fix may be - like what grub2 flags you may need, or whatever14:35
kgbit's been a couple of years that i threw out everything old to recycling..:) just too much stuff going on, haven't got the time, meh14:36
kgbmaybe Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS (Lucid Lynx), or Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS (Precise Pangolin) something that had been patched and worked on a lot14:38
kgbTomK: and, you know, how you write the ISO to usb also.. just see if you can do Rufus under Windows for example14:40
reverbGood day, my laptop is making a loud noise + no bootable device error. Sometimes I do enter my grub bootloader and my Linux seems to work fine but my windows is incredibly slow14:42
reverbI have tried boot repair14:43

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 !patience22:00
* doubledutch and ubottu welcome vlada by sliding super close to him and ordering three shots22:00
vladaIf I have a problem with acpi=off with ubuntu 20.04 because of probably missing drivers, would i also have same problem in XUbuntu? Thanks in advance!22:01
