guivercG'day Guest2039, if you have a Lubuntu support question, just ask it, be patient, people will respond when they can.  #lubuntu-offtopic for non-support talk though02:43
Guest2039ok thank you!02:43
Guest2039basically, is there a way that i can set up persistent storage on the same usb device as the live install?02:44
Guest2039also... did i word that right?02:44
guivercI have little experience with persistent devices; if I was to create one I'd use `mkusb`, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/mkusb  (section 7 is persistent live systems)02:45
guivercOnce upon a time I used to install to thumb-drive (non-live installation), that's much harder with modern lubuntu, but I believe still possible with Lubuntu 18.04 (ie. install to thumb-drive; but haven't done it in years so this is opinion only)02:46
Guest2039if that were to work.... how would one go about that? and would that be far easier from my windows machine (or even the only way?)02:54
Guest2039because i THINK thatd be ideal02:54
Guest2039correct me if im wrong but what you just described would be the best way if possible to use this usb drive as my only drive on the system right?02:55
guivercI can't advise on windows (I don't use it), Lubuntu manual on writing is https://manual.lubuntu.me/stable/1/1.2/booting_the_image.html which has links to creating boot media from nix/macos/windows02:56
guivercit could create the *live* environment, which could then be booted to install & use `mkusb`  (how I'd do it on windows as windows is something I've forgotten; XP was last I used).. live media can install to other media (my second prior comment about non-live install on media which I'm not sure is easy/possible post-18.04 with calamares installer; but opinion only)02:59
guivercyou can have a VM operate live & write to media to (avoiding two thumb-drives), but that involves some setup on host virtualization software03:00
Guest2039either way this is going to require 2 seperate physical devices/// ok well what you just said i think is kindof an answer, being either 2 physical drives, or at least... well effectively using a vm to run a second layer to... kindof fake it out.... did i understand that right03:03

guivercyeah the VM is running the first LIVE media meaning first-thumb-drive isn't required... it can then write to the '2nd' thumb-drive as install (18.04 anyway), but it required some setup as I recall for virtualbox; I wouldn't recall how to do that (only did it once)03:04
guivercpersistence is the easier alternative; which can also be used via VM/two thumb-drives (two thumb-drives to use mkusb; it no doubt can be created on windows directly; I just don't know how sorry)03:06
Grootok Thank You for the help, even if it didnt get me set up its certainly helped send me in the right direction rather then just a more or less dead end (i think im going to try figuring it out on windows)03:06
Grootunfortunetly, all my thumbdrives (or even SD cards) either are setup with specific other things or, those that just hold things like photos i dont really have other drives to merge to at the moment (at least not that i know where they are since we moved)03:07
GrootThanks again!03:07

lubot[telegram] <xander2m> Hi there. I wonder if anyone can help me for a lubuntu installation.19:22
kc2bezWhich version of Lubuntu?19:23
lubot[telegram] <xander2m> I have Debian 10 installed in my machine. I want to dual boot lubuntu 20.10 alongside it. I edited the partition to give 27gb for lubuntu (via installation wizard) but it failed. It happened twice (I cleared up the new free partition with gparted).19:25
kc2bezDo you have a screenshot of the failure or if we could get a paste of the logfile that would be helpful too.19:27

lubot[telegram] <xander2m> I'll re-attempt it now.19:27
lubot[telegram] <xander2m> Okay. I have two photos. How do I take a logfile, please? (re @lubuntu_bot: (irc) <kc2bez> Do you have a screenshot of the failure or if we could get a paste of the logfile that would be helpful too.)19:35
lubot[telegram] <xander2m> My Imgur keeps failing to upload. (re @lubuntu_bot: (irc) <kc2bez> Do you have a screenshot of the failure or if we could get a paste of the logfile that would be helpful too.)19:50
