ubottuFor information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent13:48
oerhekssee the wiki, for windows or mac13:49
user000000erm i'm on a linux distribution13:49
oerheksor on linux, dd the image to the drive13:49
user000000thanks by the way13:49
oerhekshttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick#Creating_a_bootable_Ubuntu_USB_flash_drive_from_Ubuntu13:49
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> Most Linux distributions have an image writing tool.13:50
user000000o thanks i will look it up13:50
oerheksmkusb gives the option for persistent space, pretty neat13:51
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> If you can't find anything else Balena Etcher is fairly simple and uses dd underneath.13:52
oerheksbalena is not in our repos, and not mentioned on the wiki13:53
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> That is true but I was thinking if you were on a different distribution it isn't a bad option.13:55
user000000erm haha13:56
user000000i actually downloaded the appimage for etcher13:56
user000000ran it to flash to the usb stick but failed...13:56
user000000can i know the main reason for my laptop no recognizing my usb stick ?13:59
user000000is kinda frustrating after trying out lots of suggested solution14:00
lubot[telegram] <Michaël> use dd 14:14
lubot[telegram] <Michaël> but don't misspell anything14:14
oerheksdd && sync # to be safe14:18
lubot[telegram] <Michaël> I use 15:30
lubot[telegram] <Michaël> sudo dd if=lubuntu.iso of=/dev/xx oflag=sync status=progress15:30
oerheksBS=4M helps too15:44
lubot[telegram] <Michaël> I forgot to mention this 16:15
lubot[telegram] <Michaël> you're right (re @lubuntu_bot: (irc) <oerheks> BS=4M helps too)16:15

giacomohow i can upload new version of lubuntu?19:49
giacomoi have lubuntu 19.1019:49
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> you mean how to flash it to usb?19:49
giacomocan i do upload direct from 19.10 at 20.10?19:51
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> i think you can update it19:54
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> Please review this for EOL upgrades: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades19:55
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> Considering how far out of date it might actually be easier to re-install.19:56
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> To be on a supported release you would need to be on 21.04 but that only has support for about a month. 21.10 would be better.19:56
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> You would also want to review the release notes on https://lubuntu.me for anything to watch out for.19:58
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> i have a question19:58
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> ok19:59
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> why does Lubuntu 21.10 run so hard19:59
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> like i can't even run Firefox without waiting 2 minutes19:59
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> It depends on what you have for resources in your machine. I haven't noticed it to run different.20:00
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> i have a Pentium 4405u20:00
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> 4gb of ram20:00
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> and 16 gb of space20:00
Maikgiacomo: 20.10 is also EOL20:04
Maikbest to perform a clean install of 21.1020:04
giacomook20:05
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> There are many factors for something to appear slow. Your specifications at a glance appear fine but other tasks your machine is performing may play a factor. (re @motorolae7: like i can't even run Firefox without waiting 2 minutes)20:05
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> Also, does Firefox seem to run normally after it starts or is it just startup time?20:06
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> no20:06
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> it runs badly20:06
lubot[telegram] <kc2bez> Is it only Firefox or does everything seem to have an issue?20:07
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> everything20:07
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> last time20:08
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> i tried to install wine20:08
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> and it took 2 hours20:08
lubot[telegram] <motorolae7> and on older versions it runs just fine20:08
oerheks20.10 does not give the latest firefox, uh oh20:29
