MauroGaspari[m]Eickmeyer: Ubuntu Studio Groovy Gorilla on intel+nvidia optimus laptop, with 2 SSD drives both fully encrypted with luks? check!12:38
MauroGaspari[m]only issue so far, it seems that KDE partition manager is unable to create an ext4 luks partition. it shows the option but keeps failing. Did it from terminal and all good12:56
Eickmeyer[m]Mauro Gaspari: Strange, I can make luks with partition manager.14:10
Eickmeyer[m]Might be worth a bug report.14:11
MauroGaspari[m]Eickmeyer: oh you can? interesting14:14
MauroGaspari[m]well I will try to replicate it in a VM. If I can reproduce the same issue there, I will file a bug14:14
Eickmeyer[m]Mauro Gaspari: Looks like it has supported lvm/luks since 2.2, it's at 4.1 now. So, if something goes wrong with that, I wouldn't mind seeing the error message. It could be that we don't have something in the seed that needs to be there.14:35
MauroGaspari[m]I love xfce but I have to say the switch to plasma was a smart one14:36
MauroGaspari[m]been using ubuntu studio on daily driver PC, for everything, work, gaming, etc. wow, the performance of plasma is incredible. The compositor and window manager all work extremely well. impressive14:37
Eickmeyer[m]Yep, that was why we did the switch. That and the Wacom tablet support is superior to anything out there.14:38
MauroGaspari[m]those geeks out there are going to be very happy once this lands, probably even more after next LTS release with plasma14:40
Eickmeyer[m]Well, Linux Gamecast lamented the change big time. They had some major misconceptions about the goal of the project, one even said, "They shouldn't do that! It's an appliance!" smh14:42
MauroGaspari[m]Eickmeyer: humans don't like change 😅14:46
Eickmeyer[m]Well, truth be told, Ubuntu Studio is intended to be a desktop OS, so that's where the misconception lies.14:47
MauroGaspari[m]on the other hand, there are a lot of linux desktop users that love plasma and now they can enjoy a modern DE with JACK. no need to use anything else. 14:47
MauroGaspari[m]can't make everyone happy. but in my humble opinion this was a good change14:47
Eickmeyer[m]That's actually the majority of what I've been hearing.14:49
Eickmeyer[m]Linux Gamecast can come back once they figure that out. The thing is, one of the hosts is an Xfce zealot so he was most upset.14:49
MauroGaspari[m]but... but... come on! you have been so great that as I demonstrated, people can install any Ubuntu flavor, slap the studio installer components on top. and be happy 14:50
MauroGaspari[m]that is just a win for everyone (well unless they hate Canonical and Ubuntu)14:50
Eickmeyer[m]Yep, that was the goal. I didn't want Studio to be tied to the DE anymore. It's the only flavor left that's not tied to the DE (rest in peace, Edubuntu and Mythbuntu).14:52
MauroGaspari[m]saw the changes on the store part. Got any reply from previous ubuntu-studio team leader?14:54
Eickmeyer[m]It wasn't a team leader. It was just someone who used to participate back in 2012 or so.14:55
MauroGaspari[m]if not,I was thinking. maybe we can ask this current store if they can expand items that were on the other one? 14:55
Eickmeyer[m]Well, I don't think Hellotux has the article availability. They're pretty much just an embroidery shop, not a silkscreening or printing shop.14:55
Eickmeyer[m]I might have to start a new one if I can't get ttoine to respond.14:56
MauroGaspari[m]ah got it. is there any cost into selecting another provider that can have a wider range of items?14:56
Eickmeyer[m]That would require some research.14:56
MauroGaspari[m]more merch = more chances to lure people in there for fancy items :)14:56
MauroGaspari[m]want me to have a look around? and report back to you?14:57
Eickmeyer[m]Patreon has a merch shop. If you want to have a look, let me know. The deal is we need something that does international.14:57
Eickmeyer[m]That's the one thing that has stopped me from doing sticker giveaways is that I'm in the US and would have to pay international shipping.14:58
MauroGaspari[m]oh yeah international shipping is a must, even if buyer has to pay some extra, at least they can buy14:59
MauroGaspari[m]what was the other store link that you removed? do you still have it? I can use that as a reference15:00
Eickmeyer[m]I still have it. Spreadshirt.15:04
MauroGaspari[m]ah, I was looking at it right now LOL15:04
MauroGaspari[m]same one that supplies the openSUSE store15:04
Eickmeyer[m]Yep. Might have to open a new one since I can't get ahold of ttoine.15:04
MauroGaspari[m]hopefully the 2 won't clash? 15:05
Eickmeyer[m]Well, hopefully. I'd probably have to make it ubuntu-studio.spreadshirt.net since he has the old one. I really don't want this to become a lubuntu.me vs lubuntu.net situation.15:09
MauroGaspari[m]spreadshirt can't help on that I guess, right?15:36
Eickmeyer[m]I believe they can.16:15
* Eickmeyer[m] in meeting16:16
* Eickmeyer[m] out of meeting17:19
MauroGaspari[m]no worries, let me know if there is anything I can do to help17:39
Eickmeyer[m]Mauro Gaspari: Thanks. :) Just trying to keep my son focused on online school.17:46
