=== brainwash_ is now known as brainwash
syb0rgHello. I have had a long-standing problem with xubuntu turning the video output off after inactivity despite changing every relevant power management setting. I had previously solved the problem by running a bash script with this command on startup: "xset -dpms;xset s off" . However, after using the same boot device when changing from an intel to an amd setup, the problem now exists again. Any tips?02:19
Guest_79wondering if anyone might know how to adjust PA... i've connected an old SoundBlaster Omni usb and pulseaudio's profiles are either output, or input, but there is no profile to have an audio output + input available at the same time09:23
Guest_79how do those profiles get configured?09:23
gnrpGuest_79: pavucontrol should offer those to you actually, that is weird09:40
gnrpanyway, I don't think here you'll get optimal help with that, since it is not really a xubuntu problem09:40
gnrpI guess there must be a #pulseaudio or #pulse or so on freenode which might help you much more09:41
Guest_79okay, i'm gonna try one thing as I found a sb-omni-surround-5.1.conf in PA's profile-sets, i've added some sections but can't restart pa while I'm on a call with work :)09:44
Guest_79but this may be a non-issue09:44

freshdudesorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but can i get help installing a certain .deb package?18:18
pmjdebruijnjust ask18:18
pmjdebruijnwhat is the problem?18:18
freshdudewhen i open it in software installer it just says "this package has unmet dependencies"18:19
pmjdebruijnwhich xubuntu version?18:19
pmjdebruijnthere is no such package for 20.0418:19
pmjdebruijnthe package you have isn't meant for 20.0418:19
pmjdebruijnmost likely18:19
freshdudeit is deprecated i think18:19
freshdudeso i wasnt supposed to install it?18:19
freshdudemy bad then, thank you so much for the help18:20
freshdudewould you happen to know a good system monitor kind of thing?18:20
freshdudethe default one is alright but i want to see network usage etc18:20
pmjdebruijnbasically if you have problem with installing a package, either the package is broken, or it wasn't meant for whatever OS you're running18:20
pmjdebruijnfreshdude: no clue sorry, I don't use such things18:20
freshdudeno worries, thanks again for the quick response!18:21
tomreynfreshdude: there are xfce4-systemload-plugin, xfce4-sensors-plugin, xfce4-netload-plugin, xfce4-diskperf-plugin, xfce4-cpugraph-plugin, xfce4-cpufreq-plugin, xfce4-battery-plugin, xfce4-genmon-plugin18:23
tomreyndoe sone of those cover what you are trying to monitor?18:23
freshdudei was using systemload-plugin and cpugraph but i missed the others18:25
freshdudedo they already come with xubuntu?18:25
tomreyni think so, there should be a xfce4-plugins package or similar18:26
tomreynah there's actually packages individually18:27
tomreynah they're actually packaged individually18:27
tomreynexample: xfce4-systemload-plugin18:28
freshdudei found network monitor in the panel settings18:28
freshdudenot sure if same package18:28
freshdudethough it doesnt seem to be working18:28
freshdudejust two empty bars18:29
tomreynyou may need to cinfugure it first of all18:29
tomreynso it'll know which interface to monitor18:29
tomreyntry right.clicking+18:29
freshdudei opened properties and found an empty "network device" field18:29
tomreynalso: sudo apt install xfce4-systemload-plugin xfce4-sensors-plugin xfce4-netload-plugin xfce4-diskperf-plugin xfce4-cpugraph-plugin xfce4-cpufreq-plugin xfce4-battery-plugin xfce4-genmon-plugin18:30
tomreynhmm, yes, this sounds like the one you just tried doesn't work anymore. but this is probably not the xfce4-netload-plugin18:30
freshdudeit is installed18:31
christophergrayfreshdude: run ifconfig in a terminal and use the device that has TX packets for your network device18:31
tomreynoh, right, you may just need to enter the device name in this empty field. i took what you said as "it's empty and i can't edit it"18:32
tomreynbut maybe you just meant "it's empty and i don't know what to put there"18:33
freshdudeohh my bad yes thats what i meant18:33
freshdudeit worked! thanks a lot, i have all the stats i wanted now18:35
freshdudejust curious, do these extra packages show up in the software store?18:35
freshdudelike are they supposed to or are they just hidden or something18:36
tomreynthey are available via apt, so any software handling apt packages should show them, if you have the !universe repository enabled18:36
freshdudeah i see, probably missed them then18:37
tomreyni think software store still shows apt packages in addition to snaps, but i can be wrong18:37
tomreynsynaptic would show them with !universe enabled+18:37
ubottuThe packages in Ubuntu are divided into several sections. More information at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecommendedSources for the recommended way to set up your repositories.18:37
freshdudeshould i enable it just in case18:38
tomreynfreshdude: should you enable what?18:41
freshdudethe universe thing18:42
tomreyni suspect it may already be enabled, but couldn't tell remotely.18:42
tomreynpackages there have a lower support level than those in main18:42
pjotterIf I run $ xfce4-terminal -working-directory=~/symlink (where symlink points to /somepath), the terminal opens up with the whole path instead of just the symlink. Is there a way to make xfce4-terminal use the symlink path?21:46
pjotterI wonder..21:47
