lubot<devikri> Execuse me,  … I heard that upgrading releases from lubuntu 18.04 to lubuntu 20.04 cannot be done directly, but must be reinstalled. when reinstalling, do I have to clean the partition first? or I can directly install on that partition06:46
kzhmeHello06:48
lubot<tbs> as i know u can  install directly, but forexample if u have a home partition, u may need to clean it before use it for make insttallation more stable06:51
lubot<tbs> if i want to clean partitions, i dont do it while installation, before it, while using live usb, i open partition manager, format them, than start to installation06:54
guiverc@devikri, the switch to LXDE to LXQt is not supported, but it's possible yes. It has problems which is why it's unsupported.  You can install using "manual parititioning", not format, and keep your user configs if you do re-install..   20.04 though is still in development so little testing has been done on release-upgrades. (from 19.10 which is all that will be tested)06:57
guivercnot supported, meaning direct upgrades (without re-install).. sorry for my poor wording06:59
lubot<devikri> @guiverc [<guiverc> @devikri, the switch to LXDE to LXQt is not supported, but it's possib …], thank you, that's why I have to make preparations, right?07:02
lubot<devikri> I plan to upgrade when the LTS version has been released07:02
guiverc@devikri, it's still early days..   Even if upgrade was supported; 18.04 to 20.04 upgrades don't turn on until 20.04.1 is released; which is months after 20.04's release (october 2020?; sorry I forget)07:03
guiverc(fyi:  there was documentation written for the 18.04 to 18.10 upgrade if you go looking for it, but due to problems I mentioned earlier; it's not supported so re-install is probably better; re-install is quicker anyway!)07:06
bwew253tgzwhbdhello guys10:01
bwew253tgzwhbddoes someone have ungoogled chromium?10:02
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> I though that Chromium is an unggogled Chrome.10:13
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> Is there something to degoogle it further?10:14
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> There is also entire line of browser making futher small tweaks, like Brave and other.10:14
guivercbwew253tgzwhbd, chromium-browser is in repos - https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite=all&searchon=names&keywords=chromium-browser10:14
guivercchromium is the upstream version of google-chrome; without google's closed-source-whatever10:15
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> How can I fix sound management in 19.10? … - every volume change causes lxqt-panel to appear11:04
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> -every volume change is logged in "last notification" overview in bottom bar (I simply killed this feature completely)11:04
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> - after reducing sound to 0% it is still played11:05
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> - attaching headphones is ignored, headphones are not used and main latop sound ouptut is used11:05
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> - muting sound is ignored, lxqt-panel shows 0% (muted) and sound is still played11:06
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> Everything worked well in Lubuntu 16, Lubuntu 14, Lubuntu 13 :(11:07

tomreynand could also have been done in #tests12:15
blip99sorry for the basic question but how can I upgrade 19.04 to 19.10?16:03
blip99I mean is it safe to force it currently:  sudo do-release-upgrade -c16:04
blip99or should I wait for the graphical prompt to pop up16:04
diogenes_!upgrade16:04
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade16:04
kc2bezblip99: we also have a section in our manual covering upgrades. https://manual.lubuntu.me/stable/D/upgrading.html16:35
blip99kc2bez, thank you! One question I can't find the answer to - will upgrade seamlessly handle my encrypted / and /home partitions?16:37
blip99Both encrypted using the installer, requiring a password on boot-up16:38
kc2bezblip99: it should. I have done an upgrade on a fully encrypted disk with success, I didn't have separate partitions only / but it should be the same.16:40
kc2bezAs always note the warning for backing up.16:40
blip99sounds good. thanks kc2bez16:41
kc2bezYou are welcome.16:42

lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> Arghh, is there any reasonable way to either downgrade kernel to 5.1 or upgrade to 5.4? I am currrently using Lubuntu 19.10 and I had repeated freezes It seems that I managed to run into https://askubuntu.com/questions/1185491/ubuntu-19-10-freezes-and-lags-reguarly18:16
wxlis this your issue? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/183328118:22
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1833281 in Linux "System freeze when memory is put on SWAP in Linux >4.10.x" [Medium,Confirmed]18:22
wxlif so the workaround seems to be turning off swap which should be fairly trivial if you've got a system that can handle it18:24
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> I am using Lubuntu because I have 4GB of RAM.18:26
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> I will try disabling swap, I am looking for a command.18:26
wxltemporarily: `sudo swapoff -a`18:27
wxlpermanently: comment (`#`) out the line in /etc/fstab18:27
wxlthat said, you CAN install an upstream (read: newer) kernel but these are unsupported and could create other problems since they're not really supported https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds18:31
lubot<Mateusz Konieczny> I will tru because this is really killing my computer. I am unable to even finish unpacking backups.18:32
