jpi everydoy i hava a question ... i'm on peppermint OS who is a distro made from lubuntu and sometimes when i play an online game it crashed ... i don't know how to close the crashing program ... i'm pressing on the "windows" key try to open a terminall but i d'ont know what to do next21:14
jpi serached on google but i only see solution to go to the programm manager but i don't have this21:15
lubot<FedeBosio> Which browser do you use?21:15
jpi use firefox21:15
jpbut hte game is a stand alon programm i mean i don't use a web browser to play the game21:16
lubot<FedeBosio> Sorry, my mistake... I thought that because the game is online, but your're right...21:17
jpi'm able to reach the terminal but it can take few trial21:17
lubot<FedeBosio> Do you know if the game may be run from a terminal? Perhaps the game throws some kind of message there when it crashes21:18
jpi'v try xkill but xkill close programm bar and not the app21:18
jphmm i run the throught an appimage21:18
jpi think there is a log when it bugs21:18
lubot<HMollerCl> killall -9 appname21:18
lubot<HMollerCl> you can get appname with top or htop21:19
jpbut ... this time i wasn't able to go to the desktop and close it .é.. i neede to reboot21:19
jpi see but the programm name seems to be long21:22
lubot<FedeBosio> You can kill the process by PID too21:23
jpany application that I can install that could do almost the samething as ctrl+alt+suppr on a windows OS ???21:23
jphow to kill by pid ???21:26
jpi mean what is the command line21:26
lubot<FedeBosio> When I need to do it, I do it with`top`, press `k`, write your PID and then, Enter.21:28
jpok thanks21:29
lubot<FedeBosio> You're welcome!21:29
Dan100Hi. I tried installing Lubuntu 20.04 on my old computer but when I go for creating a new partition and formatting the disk, it says it's not possible21:39
tomreynDan100: i doubt it says "it's not possible".21:39
tomreynwhat does it say?21:40
Dan100The installation didn't manage to create a partition on the disk21:41
Dan100That's the message21:41
tomreynhmm, o don't know the lubuntu installer too well, but having the exact error message we can do a web search.21:42

tomreynok, that's something we can search for21:44
tomreynpossibly that's https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/calamares/+bug/186478721:45
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1864787 in calamares (Ubuntu) "Lubuntu failed install "sfdisk --force --append /dev/sda"" [High,In progress]21:45
guivercDan100, it's covered specifically in the release notes - see https://lubuntu.me/focal-1-released/21:46
guiverc(Known Issues section)21:47
Dan100I will read, ty for the moment21:48
Dan100I didn`t get my solution22:40
tomreynyou may be missing this bit of information: "Calamares" is the installer.22:42
guivercDan100, what did you do?   Note: the reboot step mentioned is required (it'll fail if you don't do where mentioned as the failure mucks something up..; logout & login may work too, I forget)22:42
