IrcsomeBot<nash_g5> @virendrarana, I believe QT based systems are less resource intensive. GTK based system tend to be more resource heavy due to use of Javascript. Correct me anyone if I am wrong07:58
Unit193GNOME uses Javascript, Xfce is a GTK desktop that's written in C.07:59
IrcsomeBot<nash_g5> @Unit193, Thanks08:04
IrcsomeBot<virendrarana> @nash_g5, Thnx sir, but I'm little noob … I just need a good distro names for my laptop08:21
IrcsomeBot<nash_g5> Try Kubuntu 20.04. Works perfectly on my laptop.08:22
IrcsomeBot<nash_g5> Lightweight08:22
IrcsomeBot<nash_g5> Good battery performance08:22
IrcsomeBot<virendrarana> @nash_g5, Tried , 1.5hr back-up only08:22
IrcsomeBot<virendrarana> @nash_g5, Windows 10 gives 4hrs easily08:22
IrcsomeBot<virendrarana> Too much difference...08:22
oerheksTLP can do some good for laptops battery life08:25

paolo_I know my kubuntu 18 has python 2.7 already installed , but I need to upgrade at least to 3.6 how can I fix?15:18
IrcsomeBot<Will Chen> do what15:28
Antoine-Hello, can I use the fingerprint reader of my laptop with kubuntu 20.04 out of the box or do I need to install something?16:22
vbgunz_hello, anyone here got steamvr working as good on kubuntu as it is on Windows? out of the box on Windows it's superior and playable. out of the box on Kubuntu it's terrible. anyone have a tip on getting steamvr to perform at least playable? This experience is with a Valve Index.17:12
vbgunz_steamvr is just very laggy on a brand new installation of Kubuntu 20.04 whereas on the same computer dual booting into windows 10, it's great17:13

user|96871Yesterday, I decided to use rufus to create a bootable USB drive with kubuntu on it, to try it out. When I ran it for the first time, it worked fine, and I hadn't chosen to install Kubuntu on my laptop, and only ran it from the flashdrive. However, when I turned my laptop on today, with the flash drive taken out, my dell laptop said 'no bootable de21:34
user|96871vices found'. I didn't think I had even touched the default Windows OS, so I have no idea why. When I put the flash drive back in, kubuntu was the only option available. How can I fix this?21:34
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> boot to bios and select your windows boot device.21:35
user|96871when i reached the bios screen, there was no windows option anywhere21:35
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> ???21:37
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> Can you see your hard drives listed in your BIOS? Or, if you select the boot options upon boot, is your windows drive listed?21:38
user|96871No, only kubuntu options are shown21:39
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> If you ran live boot without  installing, then nothing should have changed....21:40
tomreynmaybe you changed the default boot device order in the bios?21:41
user|96871that's what I thought too, and I'm not sure what's going on21:41
user|96871How can I change it back?21:41
tomreynundo the change you made ;)21:41
tomreynbioses are vendor specific, it's hard to tell.21:42
user|96871I didn't think I had made a change...21:42
tomreyni'm with darin there, though, unless you made a change, there should have been no change.21:43
user|96871I agree with you21:43
user|96871So what's happening is that when i first turn the laptop on, it takes me to a screen that says "GNU GRUB" at the top, but only stays there for a few seconds21:44
tomreyndoes gnu grub only show when you have the usb sorage connected or either way?21:45
user|96871only when I have the usb connected21:46
tomreynso it's likely the gnu grub bootloader that's on the usb storage that gets loaded there21:46
tomreynand this one wont know about your windows installation21:47
user|96871that's specific to kubuntu right21:47
user|96871does that mean that windows has somehow completely been wiped from my device?21:47
tomreynno. this doesn't tell us anything about what happened to windows21:47
user|96871do you know how to get from the grub screen to somewhere that shows all of the OSes on the laptop?21:48
tomreynhere's another two theories: you enabled or disabled "secure boot", or switched from uefi to legacy bios / CSM boot mode.21:49
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> Boot again to your usb and use partition manager to inspect your partitions.  Look for any NTFS partition....21:49
user|96871I'm pretty sure mine is on enabled for secure boot21:49
user|96871i'm honestly not sure what that does though - what should it be on?21:49
tomreynthe only thing that matter is whether you changed these settings21:50
tomreynif you say you didn't touch the bios, then that's irrelevant for now.21:50
user|96871i'm pretty sure i didn't21:51
user|96871okay at the screen i'm looking at, there are 5 options - 1) start kubuntu, 2) start kubuntu (safe graphics), 3) OEM install (for manufacturers), 4) boot from next volume, and 5) UEFI firmware settings21:52
user|96871at the bottom it says you can press e to edit the commands before booting or c for a command line21:52
user|96871if anyone could help me i would greatly appreciate it - i'm in the middle of an online class, and this is the only laptop i have readily available to me21:54
tomreyn4 would try booting into windows, but this may or may not work21:54
tomreynother than that, 1 would enable you to do what darin suggested21:54
user|96871what does "next volume" mean?21:55
tomreyngenerally this #kubuntu is not the best place to fix windows bppt problems21:55
user|96871it just shows the dell screen, saying no bootable devices found21:55
tomreyn(there's ##windows though)21:55
user|96871okay thank you I'll try that21:55
tomreynnext volume points to the next storage found on the computer21:56
tomreynso probably the fixed disk21:56
user|96871how do i go to #windows ?21:57
user|96871nevermind found it21:57
user|96871I have another question - since it seems that my copy of windows has been somehow messed up, i'll probably have to uninstall windows. I need to back up my files, though, so can i go ahead and run kubuntu, install it, and then will i be able to back up my files from there?22:10
tomreyn<user|96871> i was able to get back to windows by messing around22:35
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> messing around with  the BIOS boot?22:38
