lubot<HMollerCl> going back to vpn thing.00:04
lubot<HMollerCl> nmcli is commanline only, right?00:05
wxlcorrect00:05
wxlnmtui is a ncurses interface but i'm not sure it's feature complete00:05
wxlif you can get it to work in nmtui, you can get it to work in the "edit connections" selection of nm-tray because that's whta it opens00:05
lubot<tsimonq2> Oh, by the way wxl00:08
lubot<tsimonq2> plasma-nm and nm-tray both use the same library on the backend00:09
lubot<tsimonq2> So while we can't use plasma-nm, we can look at how they implemented certain things with the library.00:09
lubot<tsimonq2> Worst case scenario it's a KDE library, so :)00:09
lubot<HMollerCl> I don't see VPN in nmtui either00:10
lubot<HMollerCl> In add I see: DSL, Ethernet, InfiniBand, Wi-Fi, Bond, Bridge, IP tunnel, Team, VLAN00:12
wxlbummer00:13
wxlnmcli it is then00:13
lubot<HMollerCl> nmcli is only commadn line00:14
lubot<HMollerCl> apparently whit a valid config file a VPN connection can be up/down. But it can't be friendly created00:16
wxlright00:18
lubot<HMollerCl> why plasma-nm ca'nt be used?00:20
wxlplasmoid00:21
wxlessentially needs all of plasma desktop00:21
wxli mean jeez someone enterprising could probably cut out the stuff in plasma-nm that's not in nm-tray and paste it in and call it a day XD00:22

wxl@lynorian: we should probably have a page in the manual on how to set up a connection that isn't natively supported by nm-tray/nmtui.. someone on #lubuntu said wpa-enterprise wasn't a thing either00:28
lynorianwxl put that on phab please I honestly don't use either of those setups so won't be the easiest for me to write00:30
wxl@HMollerCl can i count on you for that? you can generalize it. 00:30
lubot<HMollerCl> @wxl [<wxl> @HMollerCl can i count on you for that? you can generalize it.], ok01:13
lubot<HMollerCl> not sure what wpa-enterprise is.01:13
lubot<HMollerCl> any other thing? maybe it's easier to port something than to write cases for all the options??01:14
lubot<HMollerCl> aaa, you are thinking in copyng the config files generated with plasma-nm ??01:15
wxl[m]I think just keep it general. You can use the VPN as an example01:15

lubot<OdinTdh> Hello guys. I have a very simple utility that I would like in the future be included in Lubuntu (Ubuntu) repositories10:52
lubot<OdinTdh> Any ideas that what are the tasks necessary to get this10:53
lubot<brli7848> First share the code.11:13
lubot<OdinTdh> Well, i had a repository in gitlab.11:13
lubot<OdinTdh> Alberto Vicente / pyLinuxWheel · GitLab ... https://gitlab.com/OdinTdh/pyLinuxWheel11:13
lubot<OdinTdh> I think that is not properly structured to be packaged but well, in part, this is the reason for i asking in this channel11:15
lubot<HMollerCl> Hi @OdinTdh I think @tsimonq2 or @wxl could help you, but I think they are in the US west coast time zone, so, sleeping now.11:58
lubot<OdinTdh> I dont have hurry, because the application is in alpha status, and i have to work more in it. But i would like to prepare to be packaged in the future12:00
lubot<OdinTdh> So is not a problem to wait hehe12:01
lubot<tsimonq2> @HMollerCl [Hi @OdinTdh I think @tsimonq2 or @wxl could help you, but I think they are in th …], (wxl is US west coast, I'm US central ;) )12:53
lubot<tsimonq2> @OdinTdh [Hello guys. I have a very simple utility that I would like in the future be incl …], What's it do?12:54
lubot<OdinTdh> It is a very little utility to change the range (in grades) of logitech racing wheels12:59
lubot<OdinTdh> It is useful for linux gamers, because the official tool to do this is only in Windows, and my program is little alternative. Now, only can change the range, but in the future i want to support all features from the driver13:03
lubot<tsimonq2> I can help you get it in the repos but whether or not we should include it in Lubuntu is a different story. ... One major question that affects the latter is why you chose GTK 3 instead of Qt. We switched to LXQt this cycle, and as a project, Qt has become a first class citizen (and we try to avoid shipping GTK apps by default if we 13:05
lubotcan help it). ... In our experience, Qt 5 is quite a bit more stable anyway. :)13:05
lubot<OdinTdh> I dont pretend that be installed by default in Lubuntu, because it is only useful for owners of logitech racing wheels and it is a minority. But i would like that can be installed easy from Ubuntu repositories13:08
lubot<tsimonq2> OK, cool 👍13:13
lubot<tsimonq2> I would still like to know why you went with GTK over Qt though. :)13:14
lubot<tsimonq2> The release announcement will be out shortly (it's intentionally delayed until today, I'll explain later). ISOs are up here if you want them: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/releases/18.10/release/13:15
lubot<OdinTdh> Ok. Im going to try to explain. My favourites desktops uses Gtk (mate, lxde, xfce) and the python gtk3 tutorial is very good, better in my opinion thst the documentation of pyqt.13:17
lubot<OdinTdh> On the other hand i m going to differenciate the ui part from the interaction with the driver, so is perfect possible to create a ui in qt and reuse part of the code of my aplication.13:20
lubot<OdinTdh> The truth is that now is a very little applications so it doesnt have sense overthinking about the architecture of the application when it is only a 500 lines in Python13:24
lubot<tsimonq2> True.13:27
lubot<tsimonq2> Let me know when you make a release that's stable enough for general consumption and I can get it packaged and in the repos for you. :)13:27
lubot<OdinTdh> Thanks Simon!!!13:28
lubot<tsimonq2> No problem, let me know if you need me for anything else :)13:30
lubot<Wafficus> Sweet idea about Linux drivers for wheels. One of the reasons I still have a Windows based gaming machine13:31
lubot<Wafficus> Interesting take on gtk though this project is more geared to qt for the present so I think that's why we're focusing on using it for now13:32
lubot<tsimonq2> Right. I mean, GTK is fine, we just prefer Qt for anything Lubuntu endorses. If @OdinTdh really wanted to, if it was a Qt frontend, I'd let him develop it under the Lubuntu team umbrella (which makes you part of a Linux distro team and strengthens the credibility of the Lubuntu brand I think).13:36
lubot<tsimonq2> Plus, God forbid you get hit by a bus or something similar, your project can be carried on as normal.13:37
lubot<tsimonq2> But it's all up to you, @OdinTdh.13:38
lubot<OdinTdh> Well, i can study qt and take a decision about it. It can be interesting13:38
lubot<tsimonq2> Let me know, because we'd be happy to have you on the team, even if it's just to work on that. :)13:39
lubot<tsimonq2> By the way, welcome @aptghetto, good to have you here. :)13:42
lubot<OdinTdh> Thanks for the invitation. Let me study a bit a qt. I think that a qt version can be easy to make13:42
lubot<tsimonq2> 👍13:43
lubot<Luiz Cláudio> Hello everyone, testing Lubuntu 18.10 LXQt and it is working very well, congratulations to the whole team.14:18
lubot<tsimonq2> Thanks 👍14:35
lubot<Wafficus> When's the next team meeting btw? And could it be 7:30 pm est onward :D15:11
lubot<marneu> Looks like the upgrade from 18.04 is working even worse than expected, this might need a section in the manual and/or release notes. ... https://www.reddit.com/r/Lubuntu/comments/9peiw2/upgraded_to_1810_desktop_environment_is/15:20
lubot<tsimonq2> @Wafficus [When's the next team meeting btw? And could it be 7:30 pm est onward :D], After the release announcement etc. I'm taking a vacation from Lubuntu so maybe we have to skip a week if others are doing the same.16:13
lubot<tsimonq2> @marneu [Looks like the upgrade from 18.04 is working even worse than expected, this migh …], Oh, I don't doubt it.16:13
lubot<tsimonq2> The whole freaking release is a new feature.16:14
lubot<tsimonq2> I'm ready to call the upgrade path unsupported, just install fresh...16:14
lubot<tsimonq2> Otherwise we have the document Lyn wrote up16:14
lubot<tsimonq2> But I don't even know if I want to officially support it.16:14

wxl@TheWendyPower @HMollerCl i didn't really pay attention to it but does the volume icon seem particularly dark to you? can we resolve that some how18:11
lubot<marneu> wxl: I've seen a similar issue with the nm-tray icon with light themes.18:13
wxlthat's to be expected, marneau, because it's light18:13
wxlif you change from a dark to light theme, you need to change from a light to dark icon theme18:13
lubot<marneu> No, I think the icon stays light regardless.18:14
wxlthe icon theme should change it18:14
lubot<marneu> The volume icon should change as well, but it doesn't.18:14
lubot<tsimonq2> Have you tried logging out and logging in again?18:15
lubot<tsimonq2> We might need to go hunt down agaida for this one :P18:15
lubot<marneu> @tsimonq2 [Have you tried logging out and logging in again?], I think I did, but I might be wrong. I'll investigate.18:16
lubot<marneu> ha, nevermind. wxl was right, I didn't change the icon theme (I didn't notice because I usually set the Qt theme to "gtk2").18:20
lubot<HMollerCl> @wxl [<wxl> @TheWendyPower @HMollerCl i didn't really pay attention to it but does the …], It is very dark indeed, also the battery one if you use the one from the theme. I tried to get how it works but I couldn't18:20
lubot<HMollerCl> It appears to be papirus dark issue18:21
lubot<HMollerCl> With numix it change18:21
lubot<HMollerCl> (numix circle looks awesome)18:21
lubot<HMollerCl> Nm-tray icon does change when changing between papirus and papirus-dark18:22
lubot<HMollerCl> There is an option that is something like "change icon colors according to theme" if you change that the volume icons become black, but all the icons in pcmanfm-qt become white too and thus can't be seen18:24
lyorianTes pretty sure logout is best for panel as it doesn't change widget19:10
lubot<TheWendyPower> @wxl they are dark...19:12
wxlwe probably should have fixed that19:12
wxlthis is my problem. i don't tend to pay attention to stuff like that19:12
wxli like dark and as such have had to suffer with the occassional dark icon here and there. no big deal.19:12
wxl(in my mind)19:12
wxlmaybe we can do an SRU to fix the icon? is that crazy, @tsimonq2 ?19:13
lubot<tsimonq2> @wxl [<wxl> maybe we can do an SRU to fix the icon? is that crazy, @tsimonq2 ?], It isn't crazy.19:13
lubot<tsimonq2> Fairly doable.19:13
lubot<TheWendyPower> I would like to lighten them up a little. Keeping them dark, but not so dark.19:13
wxlmaybe a light border around them?19:14
lubot<tsimonq2> Here's the only problem. Unless the user does an update before the first login, since LXQt has no concept of profiles, the unpatched copy will be copied to `~/.config`, but then the update won't copy over the change.19:15
lubot<tsimonq2> It's hacky, horrible, and won't be accepted if we tried to do that in postinst.19:15
lubot<tsimonq2> So it's probably best to release note it.19:15
wxlok19:15
lubot<TheWendyPower> For 19.04 we can have that fixed.19:16
wxlyeah19:16
lubot<tsimonq2> Oh for sure.19:16
lubot<TheWendyPower> There are several UI things I would like to get cleaned up for 19.0419:17
lubot<tsimonq2> @TheWendyPower [There are several UI things I would like to get cleaned up for 19.04], Then you and @MichaelTunnell should file a bunch of Phab tasks. :)19:18
lubot<tsimonq2> We have our own instance for a reason, don't be afraid to brain dump in a task.19:18
lubot<HMollerCl> @tsimonq2 [Here's the only problem. Unless the user does an update before the first login, …], where is it copied? I always thought there where here /usr/share/icons/Papirus-Dark19:18
lubot<MichaelTunnell> BRAIN DUMP19:18
lubot<TheWendyPower> @tsimonq2 I really should, so I can keep track of them all.19:19
lubot<tsimonq2> @HMollerCl [where is it copied? I always thought there where here /usr/share/icons/Papirus-D …], Wait, are you talking about fixing the icon itself or the CO configuration for the panel?19:19
lubot<tsimonq2> @TheWendyPower [@tsimonq2 I really should, so I can keep track of them all.], Doeeeeet19:19
lubot<tsimonq2> @MichaelTunnell [BRAIN DUMP], Yup :D19:19
lubot<HMollerCl> @tsimonq2 [Wait, are you talking about fixing the icon itself or the CO configuration for t …], Is tehre another way to do it?19:20
lubot<tsimonq2> @HMollerCl [Is tehre another way to do it?], Well, if the icon itself is wrong we can fix that, but if the configuration is wrong we can't fix it.19:21
lubot<HMollerCl> I'm not sure where the problem is. When you select the icon theme, there is a checkbox with something like "color icons according to style controls (palllet)"19:22
lubot<HMollerCl> if you uncheck this, the volume icon can be seen, but the pcmanfm-qt can't19:23
lubot<HMollerCl> But that doesn't happened with numix-circle-19:23
lubot<tsimonq2> @HMollerCl Could you maybe try to play with Kvantum?19:24
lubot<HMollerCl> @tsimonq2 [@HMollerCl Could you maybe try to play with Kvantum?], ok, will look at it19:26
lubot<HMollerCl> is there a good info on how icons work? I'm still in an old install from august, and although I have made all the updates, there is still an icon in papirus I have different from a fresh install (for pulse audio I have the same icon as for volume). I have purged and reinstall papirus icon and this rhing is still different.19:31
lubot<HMollerCl> maybe there is something i ./config that made this happened and that we could use.19:31
