MadpilotI just did a quick proofreading run thru that, ompaul - looks OK12:04
ompaulMadpilot, thanks12:04
ompaulrobotgeek was suggesting he was going to do something about an install - was it install an application or install the o/s?12:05
Madpilotthe install guide is for the OS, I think12:10
Madpilotnot sure what the status of that is12:10
ompaulI'll get him tomorrow and see if I can do something he may be able to use or are our aims so different :) I want installing an applicaiton and a quick overview of where files go and why kind of filesystem and install I suppose12:19
Madpilotompaul, check the current Ubuntu Desktop Guide for Dapper at doc.ubuntu.com - some of that is already in there - there's a good Add Applications section12:21
ompaulmight save me a job of work that would be cool12:22
ompaulhmm tasty 12:23
ompaulI will bookmark that for tomorrow12:24

FloidWhat's the easiest way to request a small improvement to a package desc., or can I just drop it in someone's lap here?03:16
Madpilotfile a bug against the package on launchpad03:17
FloidJust what I need, one more login/password. ;)03:17
FloidBut yeah, if I must..03:17
LaserJockFloid: launchpad is used for lots of things in Ubuntu so it might be worthwhile 03:18
Madpilotdocteam doesn't actually handle the package descriptions, the packagers do03:18
FloidI was really just trying to weasel a one-off filing on my behalf, but since I got the RTFM answer I'm already registering. ^^03:19
FloidFor what it's worth, and you might find a personal reason to care at some point, the acroread-plugins package is required to handle certain (or possibly all) fillable forms.03:19
Madpilotbugs are best filed by the people who actually experienced them - that way you can be contacted for further details if needed...03:19
FloidThat is the entirety of the bug, all you get is some 'these plugins are evil and report back to the mothership' libre handwaving in the current desc. ;)03:20
FloidAnyhow, remember this if you need to do your Connecticut taxes. :P03:21
MadpilotI live on the far side of the continent from Connecticut, and in another country :P03:21
LaserJockwell, I'm at least in the same country, but we don't have state income taxes :)03:22
FloidThis is a certificate of no tax for an estate, actually, but that's getting into extraneous detail.03:22
FloidI'm also looking for legal templates for OpenOffice, if anyone knows where they're hiding.  (Found reference to them, but not the actual last time I Googled.)03:23
MadpilotFloid, for those, try the main #ubuntu channel - I think there's an openoffice channel too03:24
FloidThat, in turn, was just the sound of me making small talk. ;)03:36

mdkerobotgeek, hi02:55
robotgeekmdke: just wanted to mention references to "sudo gedit" need to be corrected02:55
robotgeekto gksudo gedit02:56
mdkerobotgeek, yes, ideally, although sudo gedit works I think02:56
robotgeekmdke: NEVER use sudo to start graphical programs. You should always use gksudo or kdesu to run such programs, otherwise new login attempts may fail. If this happens and at login an error message reports: "Unable to read ICE authority file", log in using the failsafe terminal and execute the command below subsituting user for your username.02:57
robotgeekhas happened to me on gnome, and can be quite painful02:58
mdkethat only happens on a kde/gnome split system, right?02:58
robotgeekmdke: nope, even on a pure gnome system02:59
mdkeit doesn't happen if you run gnome apps with sudo in gnome02:59
robotgeekmdke: that's what the wiki says 02:59
mdkeI've never seen that on my system, although I do it regularly02:59
mdkeanyway, no reason not to use gksudo, of course03:00

robotgeekthat would work :)03:01
robotgeekjpatrick: is there any other way to manage startup session programs other than "Save Session on Logout"03:03
jpatrickrobotgeek: ~/.kde/Autostart03:04
jpatrickput a .desktop file there03:04
robotgeekjpatrick: and that can be copied from /usr/share /applications?03:05

mdkeif there's a graphical way, best to document that first though03:07
mdkerobotgeek, ^^03:08
robotgeekthanks! i prefer to document the gui way03:09
Kaiser_Awayrobotgeek: in all honesty i have only seen the ice issue when KDE apps are run sudo under Gnome (k3b springs to mind), but i still recomiend people against using sudo for the gui *shrug*. 03:13
robotgeekKaiser_Away: might be it, but people will definetly mix and match. it might be better to prefer to gksudo way03:14

jpatrickIf I have <bddebian@comcast.net> <- how doI stop that from being a tag?04:33
robotgeekthanks mdke04:34
robotgeekmight not validate with one omission in libs/kde.ent04:37
mdkejpatrick, &lt;bddebian@comcast.net&gt;04:38
mdkerobotgeek, best have a patch for that too, we need things to build for the preview server04:39
robotgeekmdke: yes, i can also patch the Makefile if you wish04:39
mdkerobotgeek, is it necessary? or are you using desktopguide/C/mk?04:40
robotgeekmdke: hmm, i am actually just using yelp. the mk file works as such, but it doesn't build status and such04:41
