prodigycompiz-fusion is the coolest thing that came out of linux world.00:17

MetaMorfoziSprodigy > i think linux has a lot of better stuff imho00:18
tininAdobe Flash suck with compiz-fusion enabled :S00:18
Daisuke_Idooh yes, go bloat and cruft00:18
prodigyit blasts vista aero to smithereens, vista alredy sucked hard, but hardy made it look lame, too!!!00:18
MetaMorfoziSflash sucks everywhere...00:18
prodigyMetaMorfoziS: liek what?00:19
Daisuke_Idocompiz is nice for showing off a "hey, look at me, i'm cool!" desktop, but completely and utterly useless when it comes to actually working on a pc00:19
darrickis there a way other than wine to run flash (adobe flash to make games)00:19
MetaMorfoziSlike it's unavailable for 64bit00:19
prodigyi like my linux to look kool00:19
MetaMorfoziSlike ff crashes 99% caused by flash00:19
prodigyDaisuke_Ido: i can proove you wrong, mate00:19
MetaMorfoziSlike it eats up your cpu (at least mine)00:19
tinina nice trick is to zoom in the small flash embeded videos with compiz, instead of using them at fullscreen00:19
prodigyMetaMorfoziS: you are r8! flash sux hard:)00:20
Daisuke_Idoprodigy: how does compiz improve productivity00:20
helpybut you can't watch youtube without it00:20
prodigyDaisuke_Ido: i use compiz to ease up my work with viewports.00:20
MetaMorfoziSthats true:)00:20
helpyDaisuke_Ido: its more navigable00:20
Daisuke_Idoyou are aware that virtual desktops aren't new, right?00:20
Odd-rationalei like compiz tab windows feature... although fluxbox already had that...00:20
MetaMorfoziSBut adobe stated that they do the development paralell with other versions now00:20
helpyjust do tilt windows and see whats in back ground00:20
MetaMorfoziSso new versions came out at the same time in the future00:21
Daisuke_Idocompiz offers nothing every distro doesn't already have00:21
darrickcan you get virtual desktops free00:21
MetaMorfoziSso they become good:)00:21
darrickeven if its a trial?00:21
prodigyDaisuke_Ido: as many viewports as you like, just a keyboard shortcut away., and it looks kool too., plus seeing the content of widow while win+tab or alt+tab...00:21
Daisuke_Idodarrick: what?00:21
MetaMorfoziSi mean, flash player00:21
prodigyetc etc00:21
Daisuke_Idoprodigy: "cool" - we try to use big boy language here00:21
Rioting_pacifisttinin: the result of that varies, on gutsy with ATI it sucked on hardy still with ATI its good :s00:22
darrickim not sure...00:22
Rioting_pacifistbetter than kwin fullscreen00:22
MetaMorfoziSDaisuke_Ido > no, i try to use english here... i has some difficulity as you can see:D00:22
prodigyDaisuke_Ido: what is wrong in some koolness in your computer using?00:22
tininFlash 10b, has 3d aceleration, but only if compiz is not running00:23
prodigyit looks crispy, and helps me speed up my work. that is why i use it. p.s. i say kool, because i like KDE ;)00:23
tininblame on adobe00:23
prodigyand hate gnome00:23
Daisuke_Idoso otherwise you would have said "gool"?  you make no sense00:24
prodigyno, man, i say kool, konsole, etc. what do you have against me ssaying kool?!00:24
Qsterhow do you use viewports?00:24
prodigyQster: use them for what?00:25
Qsteri dunno was just wondering what they are really00:25
prodigyQster: they are a part of compiz, replacing virtual desktops00:25
Daisuke_IdoQster: fancy name for "virtual desktop"00:25
Daisuke_Idocompiz has its place, and i won't deny anyone their shiny00:26
prodigyDaisuke_Ido: are you a no X user?00:26
Qsterhow do i use it tho?00:26
Qsterit says its enabled00:26
prodigyDaisuke_Ido: i bet you prefer typing a comand rather that clicking on an icon...00:26
Daisuke_Idoprodigy: i use X, i just prefer not to use compiz00:26
minhaajcompiz is awesome00:26
darrickok why wont some programs open, they just go to loading aplication and then dissapear00:26
prodigyDaisuke_Ido: ok.00:26
Daisuke_Idoprodigy: and would that be an issue?  if i did prefer to use a command line?00:26
minhaaji have seen windows vista users stop blinking watching what compiz can do00:27
minhaajbut true, linux isnt about eye candy00:27
minhaajits more than that ?00:27
Qsteryou cant run gui programs from a command line tho00:27
prodigyDaisuke_Ido: not at all, i just know some ppl that hate X and everything about it, compiz too.00:27

TreefireHowdy guys. I'm still learning about getting leopard and kubuntu to communicate, and eh, it's not going so well. How do I get both leopard and kubuntu to be able to play music from a music partition?01:55
TreefireLeopard keeps wanting to not read it because it isn't a mac filing system, but of course when I reformat it into a mac filing system linux doesn't even know it exists01:56
NickPrestaTreefire, you can mount the partition and have Amarok play the folder like it would any other folder. I'm not sure about Leopard. I would consult their support options01:56
NickPresta!mount | Treefire01:56
ubottuTreefire: Partitioning programs: !GParted or QTParted (also "man mkfs" for formatting) - Mounting partitions in Kubuntu, go to System Settings -> Advanced Tab -> Disks & Filesystem. See also !fstab and !DiskMounter01:56
TreefireSo it's a leopard fault, not an ubuntu fault01:56
TreefireThat's kinda cool01:56
NickPrestaWhat file system is the partition?01:57
TreefireUh... whatever standard mac osx filing system there is... I forget the name of it, kds+ or something01:57
TreefireI'm a recent convert to anything unixbased01:57
Treefireand i wasn't very technologically literate beforehand for that matter01:57
NickPrestaapparently, Leopard is using ZFS01:57
TreefireNo manual entry for mkfs01:58
TreefireDid I break it?01:58
TreefireWait, kubuntu can just plain old mount my music partition?01:58
TreefireRofl, wow01:58
TreefireSo I have no need to change its filing system01:58
TreefireI can just keep it the way it is, so mac osx is happy01:58
NickPrestaTreefire, if you can view the partition (/dev/sda1 or what ever) then you're good01:59
Treefireand still be able to play from it in kubunku01:59
TreefireWow, that's cool guys01:59
TreefireThanks :D01:59
NickPrestaI do something similar. I have all my music/videos on a 500GB USB hard drive (that is formatted to NTFS)01:59
TreefireI was thinking a different format that both OSes could read would work02:00
Treefirebut the only thing I know anything about is fat16 and 3202:00
Treefireand i don't really want to make a fat16 partition on my hd02:00
FirefisheCan kubuntu read/write to NTFS yet?02:00
Odd-rationaleFirefishe: yes it can02:01
NickPrestaGNU+Linux can read/write to FAT file systems, can read NTFS native and with a bit of help, write to NTFS. Any of those are fine02:01
NickPresta!ntfs-3g | Firefishe02:01
ubottuFirefishe: ntfs-3g is a Linux driver which allows read/write access to NTFS partitions. Installation instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MountingWindowsPartitions02:01

Treefireanother thing02:02
TreefireWhat do I need to do to get kubuntu to recognize my wireless card?02:02

NickPresta!wireless | Treefire02:02
ubottuTreefire: Wireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs02:02
Treefireah, thanks. I had browsed the forums and all I found were people who had already done the basic steps that i don't know about, and those steps didn't work02:03

FSHeroHI... could anyone tell me which nvidia-glx package I should use for a Geforce 6700?09:03
FSHeroDaisuke_Ido: Thanks!09:04
level1hi, I have the nvidia drivers from the nvidia website and somehow I managed to install nvidia-glx... now apt is complaining about conflicts and refuses to do anything.  Is there a way to have apt pretend that the driver is not installed without it having to change anything on disk?09:04
Daisuke_Idolevel1: no09:05
flaccidfix it up properly09:05
FSHeroBy the way, isn't it a bad idea for the package maintainers to call it nvidia-glx-new? because what about when NVIDIA releases the next set of drivers? They should have numbered it.09:05
helpyi can't see toolbar on my browser and other apps09:05
helpyi have done somethng with appearance09:05

level1flaccid: fixing it properly means not fixing what aint broke!09:06
flaccidlevel1: that doesn't make sense09:06
Daisuke_Idolevel1: if it's not working, it's broke, that's what broke means09:06
level1flaccid: the only thing that doesn't work on my system is apt... I don't see why I have to fsck up my driver set up to get apt working when its just apt being obstinate09:07
FSHeroflaccid: What do you mean?09:07
flaccidlevel1: i don't know what that has to do with it. there is file conflicts here. pretty basic. its either manual or from package, not a combination09:08
flaccid!doesntwork | level109:08
ubottulevel1: Doesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.09:08
flaccidwe can't help if you are vague09:08
helpyhow do i get my appearnce back ???09:08
level1flaccid: there are no file conflicts.  Its just apt won't do anything because it thinks there are problems, but there is none09:08
Daisuke_Idolevel1: it's you not doing it right - if you had installed through apt in the first place, this wouldn't be happening.09:09
flaccidlevel1: don't see how you can conclude that. all this talk and you can't show us the apt error. what did you expect?09:09
flaccidlast time i saw apt lie was um.. never09:09

Jucatohelpy: how are you sure compiz is working *right now*!?"!?09:18
flaccidhelpy: that doesn't conclude anything at all. that is merely an assumption. so what you can do is do this kwin --replace and see if you get them back.09:18
maggodo you use kwin or ermerald as window-dekorator?09:18

helpyyou want me to shut down compiz at all ?09:37
flaccidusers who come for help then claim they know what the problem is and isn't always amuses me :)09:38

nainefok thank you09:38
flaccidhelpy: [18:18] <flaccid> helpy: that doesn't conclude anything at all. that is merely an assumption. so what you can do is do this kwin --replace and see if you get them back.09:39
flaccidhelpy: also don't repeat.09:39
helpyyea got em all09:39
* helpy hugglifies flaccid09:39

helpyyep, but trust me i was also flooded with all of you09:39
helpyi kinda flipped out09:40
flaccidthere is always the scroll and logs09:40
HollowPointyou were flooded with 4 people telling you to do the same thing at one point and you refused so I see flaccids point\09:40
flaccidso no need to worry, just take your time reading people's messages. like i just demonstrated if you had of done that with the first 2 things i asked, you would not of gone through any of that..09:40
flaccidhelpy: now if you decide to run compiz again. keep in mind the problem is with that if it doesn't give you window decorations. also if you read the wiki link which i also showed you earlier it will tell you how to make sure you get window decorations in compiz-fusion on kde..09:41

kuilhi all.. any java users/developers here using (k)ubuntu hardy?.. I seem to have a lot of crashes while running java programs.. (netbeans, maven compilation, etc)....09:46
nainefisn't openjdk still a  werk in progress?09:48
kuilnainef: I think it is yes...09:49
kuilsome parts are still not finished09:49
nainefis the normal jdk from sun still an option?09:49
PennycookYes it is.  I found OpenJDK to be rubbish, threw compilation errors for perfectly valid Java.09:50
kuilnainef: why would'nt it be? I have installed jdk6.0 here... (by hand though)09:50
Pennycookkuil: I've been having problems with NetBeans and menubars, but everything else seems to be fine.09:51
kuilhmm.. .. netbeans just 'dissapears' on me09:51
PennycookDid you install kubuntu-restricted-extras?09:52
kuilPennycook: yes09:52
nainefthat package is always the first one I install09:52
Pennycookkuil: OpenJDK is installed as a part of kubuntu-restricted-extras; even though you've got JDK6 installed there might be a few problems with conflicting jdk's and whatnot.09:53
* nainef smacks head......09:53
nainefThe idea behind openjdk is a great one but it still needs a lot of work09:54
kuilhopefully that's the problem...09:54
Pennycookkuil: Run java -version.09:54
kuilnainef: I agree09:54
kuilPennycook: that returned my 'manually' installed jdk version09:54
kuiljava version "1.6.0_009:54
kuilbut openjdk is far from perfect as I understood :(09:55
kuilhopefully this will work.. wait and see .. thx!09:55
PennycookYeah, I can only recommend getting rid of OpenJDK09:56
flaccidsun java is the only 1 i end up trusting and even then i get the odd exception on stable apps which is very annoying (v6)09:57
minhaajis there a way to get google toolbar working with firefox in kubuntu ?09:57
kuilflaccid: 'the odd exception' ?09:57
flaccidyeah java exception09:58
kuilflaccid: where java just crashes?09:58
flaccidno um i guess you don't know what an exception is in computing09:59
flaccidkuil: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exception_handling09:59
kuilflaccid: I do know java (and exception handling).. just don't understand your problem with jdk6 (in coparison with jdk 5?)10:00
HollowPointminhaaj what do you want the toolbar for exactly?10:00
HollowPointthere is a search bar in the top right of firefox in Kubuntu and it searches google directly10:01
flaccidkuil: it was throwing exceptions  on some routines that it shouldn't. i compared it to java5 and other platforms.10:01
flaccidjava5 and other platforms did the same .java fine10:01
kuilflaccid: ah..10:01
kuilwe have skipped java5 here.. moved from 1.4 to 610:01
flaccidwhich makes you throw something out the window or at least want to10:01
kuilI understand10:02
flaccidwell on the desktop im thinking stuff java now and simply build for different archs/platforms. days are different now10:02
kuilflaccid: it's hard to move an existing application to a different platform though10:04

Haza1press a button wait a while, windows is back with all drivers ect working10:46
Haza1although this lappy cost me £2500 about 2 years ago10:46
HollowPointneedhelp it should just be ftp /path/to/file ser.ver.add.ress username password10:47
HollowPointif you need more pointers just type man ftp in the command line, that will give you the manual page10:47
steve555is it an anonymous login?10:48
HollowPointsteve555 no he has a username and password for it10:48

Haza1Its still running pretty well. I think the resolution had something to do with the price10:49

ubottuaptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. Like other APT front-ends, it can install/remove packages and their dependencies (on Dapper and earlier, however, only aptitude keeps track of unused dependencies). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptitudeSurvivalGuide13:04

KR-datahw, why don't you just download it as a tar unpack it in a folder and execute it from there?13:29
haryononosred can i ask you now?13:31
hwKR-data: Cause eclipse provided by ubuntu and when I'll do the next upgrade (as I did today) I'll be sure that my system is fine13:32
KR-datahw, I've never experienced trouble with eclipse installed that way, but when installed via the package manager I had a lot of trouble with the update manager in eclipse13:33
hwKR-data: You just need to use the correct JVM then eclipse is no problem at all13:35
KR-datahw, well it might have change, but there was some things I couldn't install because of permission issues with the update manager13:36
hwKR-data: Not on my site =)13:37

voontewhat's the recommended way in kubuntu to install a package that's not yet in the repo? i need strigi v0.5.9 instead of v0.5.714:09
maltedik^livethat happens when everything works too nicely and you stop reading the hardcore-news14:09
nosrednaekimvoonte: first, try to find a deb in a PPA/getdeb , if you can't find it there, go compile it :)14:09
maltedik^livevoonte: you might aswell compile it directly as debian-package. if you just do it for yourself, its not hard at all14:10
teh-molehey all14:10
maltedik^liveDr_willis: yeah. i think ill do a backup first :D14:10
voonteok, i saw that the intrepid repository had the version I needed, but how do I take just strigi without getting all the other upgrades?14:11
maltedik^livemaybe pull the package and install it with dpkg?14:11
voontemaltedik^live, i'll try that thanks14:12
maltedik^livedpkg -i package-blalanaldfda.deb14:12
hdevalenceI set the KDE sound system to ALSA and  even rebooted the computer but it still doesn't work, with or without running X14:14
voontei suppose I could get it through packages.ubuntu.com but then I have to manually get all files I need. can't I just tell aptitude somehow to use the intrepid repository for the strigi packages?14:15

navetz_jouellette: sorry just adding more details21:35
jouellettenavetz_: Did you try krandrtray ?21:35
nosrednaekimnavetz_: yeah there is a way... but I am by no means an expert at it :P21:35
minhaajsorry i got dc nosrednaekim21:35
minhaajwhat did you say i can find super karamba ?21:35
jouellettenavetz_: the Gui might be an easier way to try to get it to work21:35
nosrednaekimminhaaj: is there a blue button in your system tray?21:35
navetz_jouellette: no, I have never been able to get krandrtray to work.21:35
ScorpKing-Laptopjouellette: configure didn't spit out any errors. i'll see what happens when i run make install. it will take a while for make to finish running though21:36
jouellettenavetz_: you might need to setup your display drivers correctly, what video card are you using?21:36
minhaajonly konversation21:36
navetz_jouellette: intel i81021:38
jouellettenavetz_: if you go to your Monitor & Display settings, what's the driver used?21:39
jouellettenavetz_: actually, are you using kde3 or kde4?21:39
navetz_jouellette: kde3 and it says driver: intel21:40
jouellettenavetz_: on a laptop?21:40
jouelletteof course, and you've played with the CRT/LCD button?21:40
jouellettedid you boot with the monitor pluged in?21:41
jouellettealexander: oi!21:41
navetz_jouellette: yes laptop, and yes I boot with the monitor plugged in21:41
alexandercan someone help me fix my video card to work again?21:41
ScorpKing-Laptopalexander: only if you explain the problem ;)21:41
alexanderHm... thats probably too much work for me. need you to just fix it.21:42
minhaajScorpKing-Laptop:  how can i find my installed superkaramba on my computer21:42
minhaaji can't find it21:42
alexanderJust kidding :)21:42
navetz_jouellette: thanks for the help, I am gonna give something a try then come back alter21:42
jouellettealexander: if it worked before, you can look in /etc/X11/ there should be backups of your older xorg.conf21:42
ScorpKing-Laptopminhaaj: run it from konsole and see if it's installed21:42
minhaajhow to run it from console ?21:43
nosrednaekimjust run "superkaramba"21:43
ScorpKing-Laptopopen konsole and type in superkaramba and press enter21:43
jouelletteminhaaj: alt-F2 then type supekaramba21:44
jouellette* superkaramba21:44
minhaajit doesnt work21:45
ScorpKing-Laptopjouellette: i get http://paste.ubuntu.com/16969/ when i run sudo checkinstall21:45
ScorpKing-Laptopminhaaj: sudo aptitude install superkaramba21:46
alexanderOk. Here is the descriptions: Its a intel card. At first it didnt work when i installed ubuntu (no signal on screen) had to use VESA. Then, i down-clocked my motherboard (its integrated gfx) to original values, and suddenly it worked. I got it working with the intel driver, everything was fine. But then suddenly it didnt work anymore. i dont know if i did anything, i think not, but maybe a system update or something like that. This21:46
alexandertime the computer wasnt dead with no signal to screen. but the screen now flashes repeatably and says "out of range". when i CTRL ALT F2 it goes into console though. everything works nice in Vista. So my guess is that a system update of the driver fucked up or something, but i dont really know. so now im using ubuntu with VESA driver... boring! help?21:46
ScorpKing-Laptopminhaaj: run that in konsole21:46
minhaajbtw i dont get the syntax of linux commands21:46
minhaaji can use sudo apt-get install superkaramba too ?21:46
minhaajis there a good book on ubuntu ?21:46

minhaajtry apt get manager21:49
Raleskpidgin sucks, all the alternatives suck too :/21:49
ScorpKing-Laptopalexander: open konsole and run sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.broken then reboot and the file should be created again21:49
minhaaji dont believe in piracy and copyright bs21:50
Raleskmy humble apologies to all the developers, but eh.21:50
ScorpKing-Laptopwhere's the bot today?21:50

minhaajvlc is awesome21:54

geniialexander: I just told you. Back up the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf   first.    Then to run:      sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg   and choose some saner resolution. If you want to change also the driver and other stuf omit the -phigh part21:55
prodigyCarutsu: if it does not play, install kubuntu restricted extras...21:55
Freddy2is there any way to add 32-bit dev packages in a 64 bit system?21:55

nosrednaekimnever heard of that...21:57
nosrednaekimgenii: with hardy and xorg7.321:57
geniialexander: You could try the gui way, by installing kxgenerator. You can modify xorg settings from it.21:58
alexanderapplications --> add/remove ?21:59
geniialexander: Yes. Or otherwise by apt-get like:   sudo apt-get install kxgenerator21:59

jhutchins_wkcoreymon77: Same thing.22:27
jhutchins_wkdad:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_speech_recognition_software22:27
jhutchins_wkSays you can run dragon via wine, and they're working on OS recognition.22:27
coreymon77jhutchins_wk: not really, recognition is usually meant for system control with speech programs, dictation is purely for speech to text22:28
dadthanx youve given me some where to start22:28
jhutchins_wkcoreymon77: Recognition is the first step - where you put the recognised text is a second layer.22:28

neofaxAnyone using HD-DVD?22:40
coreymon77neofax: i thought that was a dead format by now22:41
neofaxNot when you have movies in that format.  Plus, most movies are cheap now.22:41
neofaxThe ubuntu help wiki says you can get it to work on edgy.  I was thinking it would be included in the kernel by now.22:42
navetzdoes anyone know how to find out what the max virtual resolution you video card will support with xrandr?22:45
neofaxnavetz: xrandr will support what your card is telling it along with the edid of your monitor.  However, you can push it past the edid of your monitor if your monitor does not tell X correctly.22:50
jhutchins_wknavetz: When you say virtual resolution, you mean where the desktop is larger than the window, right?22:53
navetzjhutchins_wk: yes , I want to use xrandr22:53
jhutchins_wkxrandr is a resizing tool.22:54
neofaxnavetz: That didn't answer the question.  I think what jhutchins_wk is asking is the ability to show what your card can handle and everything else offscreen and you can "scroll" to the other portions of the screen.22:54
jhutchins_wkRight, that's a virtual desktop or virtual resolution.22:55
navetzneofax: oh ok rightm yes I want to know what my maximum virtual resolution is22:55
jhutchins_wkFor instance, I can have a 1280x1024 desktop and view it with a 640x480 window/resolution.22:55
neofaxnavetz: Theoretically, you can have any virtual resolution, but you may need to scroll a while22:55
jhutchins_wkThere has to be a limit, probably system RAM though.22:56
Broadcomkubuntu keeps freezing randomly. anybody have any idea why?22:56
neofaxWhat is happening is X is only drawing what your card can handle until you scroll and it then draws that portion of the screen.22:56
jhutchins_wkEssentially the same thing as multiple desktops, just different access method.22:56
nosrednaekimBroadcom: maybe your nick has something to do with it?22:56
Broadcomnosrednaekim: nope22:56
neofaxBroadcom: Are you using firefox 3 b5?22:57
jhutchins_wkBroadcom: Anything in particular that seems to trigger it?22:57
Broadcomneofax: i was for a while, but stoped22:57
navetzjhutchins_wk, neofax: I am trying to set up dual screen monitors, I think that my video card cannot support a max virtual resolution that I am setting, It works for lower resolutions but not for a resolution this high. Also I have plenty of ram, (I just bought it)22:57
neofaxHave you tried looking in /var/log/messages?22:57

steve555Broadcom,I think it could your graphics card,I had a similar problem a few days ago.Previously,I was wondering why both my Kubuntu and Windows was locking up after an hour or so.I solved it by shutting down the system,opening the case,taking out the graphics card,and putting the graphics card back in again.The problem had gone away for me after that.23:04
Broadcomsteve555: hmm, im not sure how comfortable i am with doing that. were you getting those errors?23:04
navetzdoes anyone know where the logs go when you do xrandr23:04
engineer/var/log ?23:05
neofaxnavetz: /var/log/Xorg.0.log23:05
navetzneofax: ah ok thanks.23:05
neofaxnavetz: I am not that great with xinerama, but by cloning, aren't you essentially making a copy of the laptop screen to the 22" monitor?  Or does it put the screen above the laptop and incorporate it as one smooth screen?23:07
navetzneofax: by cloning, I am able to see both screens at the same time when my laptop starts up. Then because of the virtaul line, I can execute the command xrandr --output VGA --above LVDS to make my 22" go ontop of my laptop screen.23:08
steve555I wasn't getting any errors as such,as both the dessktops(kubuntu and windows)just totally froze on me.I couldn'nt move the mouse or input the keyboard,I couldn't even do a alt+ctrl+del.I had to either press the reset switch several times,or do a complete hard shutdown with the power switch and wait a few minutes.23:09
navetzneofax: it works for a virtual line of 1280 * 1600, but the my 22" uses a resolution of 1280*80023:09
Broadcomhttp://ge.ubuntuforums.com/showthread.php?t=705267&page=4 look at spaetz's comment any idea what i should do?23:10
neofaxnavetz: That is what I thought.  I think the problem is the 1680 lines of horizontal resolution.  It may be a xinerama thing.  I will check google.23:10
navetzneofax: hum ok, do you think that may be to big?23:10
neofaxBroadcom: That is the fix if you are running a imac23:12

neofaxThese basically say you will need to add the horizontal and vertical res and set your virtual to that.23:24
navetzneofax: oh I see, I don't have a mode for "1680*1050" makes sense. Brb 1 min23:25
neofaxHowever, here is where things get strange.  You can use a MegedFb setting and have the laptop run at its optimal res and the 22" at its so you wouldn't need to scroll anything, it would just fit.23:25

connorspinning desktop cube on dual monitors? O_O23:48
nosrednaekimaxel: compiz-kde compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-fusion-plugins-extra23:48
nosrednaekimaxel: and their dependencies23:49
axelThe following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:23:50
axel  libcompizconfig0 libdecoration0 linux-headers-2.6.24-17-generic libx11-xcb123:50
axel  compiz-plugins compizconfig-backend-kconfig compiz-core23:50
axel  linux-headers-2.6.24-1723:50
axelnosrednaekim: The linux-headers cause a strange feeling.23:50
nosrednaekimprobably an old version23:51
_eMaX_apparently I got a new kernel today and now linux doesn't start up as it thinks my root partition is xfs while it is ext3. anyone knows where to change that?23:53
axelnosrednaekim: A look in the /boot/grub/menu.lst showed that the kernel 2.6.24-17-generic is used.23:53
nosrednaekimyeah... but what version?23:53
nosrednaekim_eMaX_: 0.o23:53
axelnosrednaekim: how to figure this out?23:53
_eMaX_nosrednaekim: that's what I thought :)23:53
nosrednaekimaxel: do "uname -a"23:54
axelnosrednaekim: Linux schlepptop 2.6.24-17-generic #1 SMP Thu May 1 14:31:33 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux23:55
nosrednaekimoh! heh23:55
nosrednaekimdon't remove it then :)23:55
axelnosrednaekim: well, it's suggested. Strange.23:55
nosrednaekimwell, headers aren't required23:57
axelnosrednaekim: I thought the headers-packages were some "meta-packages" for the kernel.23:58
ign0ramushey all. this weekend, i will *finally* get to install kubuntu on my parents' computer.  not having done a fresh install in a long time, what packages should i install out of the box?23:58
axelnosrednaekim: Semms, that I was wrong.23:58
nosrednaekimign0ramus: I'd suggest firefox and kubuntu-restricted-extras23:58
axelign0ramus: Risky. Did you prepare your parents for that step?23:58
ign0ramusaxel: not risky at all.  all they do is email and internet23:59
ign0ramusfirefox, restricted-extras, build-essential... what else?23:59
szakulecI'd install Yakuake- it's very easy to get to, and if for some strange reason you need them to type in a command, it's easy to say "Press F12"23:59
