WaltzingAlongsdlnxgk: wonderful so long as no problem has yet been encountered it must be great00:00
wertycan i play games on zone.com through wine?00:00
Linux_Galorefor the CD covers00:00
AT0M1CB0MB3Rpoty: ew envy :[00:00
WaltzingAlongsdlnxgk: but seriously, take a look at what it is doing and how it does that00:00
sdlnxgkDr_willis, most people don't go to the CLI to install and have problems00:00
Dr_willis_One good thing about Gutsy. it makes Automatix and envy. less and less needed.. (not that they were needed befor) :)00:00
AT0M1CB0MB3Rpoty: broke my friends box pretty bad00:00
nosrednaekimLinux_Galore: I think its in kubuntu-default-settings00:00
Dr_willis_I will stick with the 'restricted-manager' tool for my simple needs00:01
Tm_Tenvy is Bad, end of discussion00:01
sdlnxgknow I tried to install nVidia drivers myself  and it broke my system and had to use envy -t  from the CLI to fix it00:01
sdlnxgkTm_T,  I guess to each his own till bitten00:01
WaltzingAlongTm_T: sure bad but why00:01
Dr_willis_of course if nvidia and ati would both get their acts together..  life would be better...00:01
Linux_Galorenosrednaekim: what I find amusing is the CD cover artwork is not on any of the wiki/kubuntu related websites00:01
sdlnxgkDr_willis, I play games on mine so had to fix the driver issue00:02
nosrednaekimLinux_Galore: ah..... i'm not sure where that is00:02
Dr_willis_Tm_T,  your system can get updated one day.. then fail to boot to X after the update..00:02
joheyHow do I set a WEP key for my wireless network interface? In System Settings->Network Settings, when setting a hexadecimal WEP key, the settings are forgotten after applying.00:02
Dr_willis_IRC is the Ultimate Game.00:02
sdlnxgkDr_willis,  ya but that is in a perfect world00:02
Tm_TWaltzingAlong: scripts that does break are bad in official channels00:02
Linux_Galorenosrednaekim: Im running of a batch of CD's and I want to put some artwork on the covers00:02
sdlnxgktrying to find monitor settings with the new KDE00:02
WaltzingAlongBrightEyes`: perhaps you come across http://www.linuxselfhelp.com/gnu/grub/html_chapter/grub_toc.html#TOC21 thanks to google00:03
edenbeastjohey those settings are stored in /etc/network/interfaces00:03
WaltzingAlongTm_T: ok so there you have it sdlnxgk; envy is bad because it can break things and this is an official kubuntu support channel; nothing about it may or may not work for some people; just that it can break and does so in undesirable ways00:03
intelikeyhmmm if i bring up eth0 then i loose the ability to access www (ppp0)  but ifconfig eth0 down restores the connection on ppp0     any thoughts ?00:03
Dr_willis_Kubuntu set up both my wide screen monitors good. :) well after i installed the nvidia drivers.00:03
basculejohey: I also think that the wallet can hold them for you00:03
OakboxDr_willis_: with compiz, if i run compiz --replace it runs compiz for one session or forever?00:03
Dr_willis_Oakbox,  just that time..00:04
WaltzingAlongOakbox: current session00:04
joheyedenbeast: Cool. I have looked in that file, and there is no WEP key configuration as far as I can see. Where can I find an example of how to set it in that file manually?00:04
Oakboxta00:04
AT0M1CB0MB3Ranybody trying to make linux from scratch?00:04
Dr_willis_Oakbox,  and if you Kill that terminal. it may kill compiz. :)  use the exit command to close the shell.00:04
edenbeastjohey 1 sec I'll give you one00:04
sdlnxgkWaltzingAlong,  I believe ya when you say it can break things but for all three of my systems it has run flawless00:04
Dr_willis_AT0M1CB0MB3R,  i tried Linux From Scratch Once.. dident see much point in it. :)00:04
smaxhi00:04
Dr_willis_You do learn a lot i guess. :)00:04
AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: to learn?00:04
Tm_Tsdlnxgk: doesnt mztter here00:04
smaxhow do i know if nvidia-glx or nvidia-glx-new is prefered ?00:04
joheybascule: Hm. The wallet is per user, right? I want the NIC to be enabled at boot time, before logging in.00:05
Dr_willis_AT0M1CB0MB3R,  but it dident teach me anything i dident allready know - other then to 'cut/paste wait' continue...00:05
wertyhow can i open iptraf00:05
WaltzingAlongsmax: preferred is the one that works with your card; check the website for the list00:05

joheysdlnxgk: I have seen some monitor settings in System Settings->Monitor and Display.00:06
edenbeastjohey: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/41448/  this is for a static configuration dhcp would be easier (you get to omit a lot of stuff ;-) )00:06
stdinsdlnxgk: put it in ~/.kde/share/apps/konversation/scripts00:06
smaxhow can i boot linux with out it invoking kde?00:06
Dr_willis_to configure the monitors on the nvida cards - i thouhg one used the 'nvidia-xconfig' tool00:06
AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: did you try to make a live cd?00:06
intelikeytesting00:06
sdlnxgkJohey in the old version yes I have seen that but not the new version of KDE00:06
AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: that seems difficult00:06
Dr_willis_AT0M1CB0MB3R,  nope. I tend touse SLAX to tweak my own live cd's00:06
andreasjust out os curiosity: Why does Gutsy use /dev/sd{a,b,..} instead of /dev/hd{a,b,..}? Any bigger changes in the handling of IDE-HDDs?00:06
basculesdlnxgk: neither it is, control centre, you'll see it00:07
intelikeyah looks like i'm still recieving this time.00:07

basculesorry00:07
smaxi need to run nvidia-xconfig for glx to work with my card.  if i boot with my card installed i have a black screen upon loading kde.  a paradox.00:07

BrightEyes`how can i remove the boot loader from MBR ?00:08
joheyThanks alot, edenbeast! I will try to adapt those settings for me.00:08
AT0M1CB0MB3R!ati00:08
ubotuTo install the Ati/NVidia drivers for your video card, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto00:08
intelikeytysonsw the command 'deb' does not exist.00:08
Dr_willis_BrightEyes`,  you instgall a different boot loader over it normally.00:08
basculesdlnxgk: off the menu, I have it00:08
AT0M1CB0MB3R!fglrx00:08
WaltzingAlongsmax: if no kde shows, ctrl+alt+f1 to get to tty1 then sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg to reconfigure x00:08
Linux_Galorebet they released Gutsy and havent done the artwork yet00:08
IkeKrullandreas: kernel devs decided to change all ide hard disks to use the sata driver layer around kernel 2.6.2000:08
joheyedenbeast: Are those really generated by the Network Settings in Kubuntu?00:08
sdlnxgkbascule, I have system settings but nothing with monitor00:08
prakhow do i unlock a locked dpkg session?00:08
Dr_willis_BrightEyes`,  depending on exactly what you are trying to do. You might want to use the dd command to zero it out. That might whipe the whole hd also.00:08
intelikeytysonsw what are you trying to do?00:09
tysonswintelikey on this page they state that I should wright that https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager/CompizFusion00:09
prak!lock00:09
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about lock - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi00:09
BrightEyes`Dr_willis_: how can grub automatically find my o/s like on kubuntu installation?00:09

sdlnxgkbascule, the new KDE 3.5 is set up a little different00:09
prak!dpkg00:09
ubotudpkg is the Debian package maintenance system, which together with apt forms the basic Ubuntu package management toolkit.00:09
prak!info dpkg00:09
ubotudpkg: package maintenance system for Debian. In component main, is required. Version 1.14.5ubuntu16 (gutsy), package size 2123 kB, installed size 6712 kB00:09
wertyi'va allready tried that:i think the app runs but there nothing on the monitor...00:09
basculesdlnxgk: I have it in system administration odd, anyway, alt+f2 kcontrol then go to peripherals00:09
ardchoille!adeptfix00:09
ubotuIf Adept crashed on you and your database is locked, try this in konsole: « sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a »00:09
stdintysonsw: you add it as a repository, not in konsole00:09
intelikeytysonsw show me what you typed in, or pasted in.00:09
Dr_willis_BrightEyes`,  Im not sure what command/how to make  grub rescan the system like the installer does.00:09
AT0M1CB0MB3Rprak: next time privet message him00:10
Dr_willis_BrightEyes`,  i normally just manually add the entrys i need to the menu.lst file00:10
andreasWaltzingAlong: strange, i have no sata, just plain old ide, but all my drives are referenced through sda, sdb (KDE, partitioning utility and default-maountpoints) /etc/ffstab still comments them as /dev/hda etc..00:10
WaltzingAlongBrightEyes`: in grub interface you can do something like setup or something. try help when you get there00:10
prakAT0M1CBOMBER: why private message?00:10
tysonswintelikey deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/amaranth/ubuntu feisty main00:10
prakthe bot?00:10
WaltzingAlongandreas: i can find the link explaining it00:10
sdlnxgkbascule, thanks will try that i'm going crazy here with this new KDE version thought maybe I didn't install something00:10
Dr_willis_Grub does not 'scan' the system and make the menu.lst thats some tool of the installer.00:10
edenbeastBrightEyes`: the MBR is the first 512 part of your hd so dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/<your device> bs=512 count=1  should do the trick00:10
sdlnxgkbascule, I just have login manager there00:11
Dr_willis_and leave him with a unbootable system. :)00:11
stdin!msgthebot | prak00:11

basculesdlnxgk: well perhaps, I have always had sytem settongs at the bottom of the kmenu00:11
edenbeastBrightEyes`: but please make sure you have a bootdisk and back up your MBR first!00:11

tomer_phow do i get the source code for my /usr/bin/tail00:11
tomer_pprogram, using adept00:11
vervek, so i'm upgrading from Feisty to Gutsy.. i think it finished, it's at the cleanup stage, asks me if i want to remove obsolete packages.. i say Remove, it works for about a minute then crashes00:11
Dr_willis_edenbeast,  yep..  asked how to make a noose to hang hiself. :)00:11
andreasIkeKrull: ah, ok that explains it. needs a bit of getting used to00:12
vervewhat should i do?00:12
ververe-run Adept?00:12
WaltzingAlongandreas: but i think it is just because the old access was slow and such but the sata access was faster and a better future platform       perhaps http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-422336.html00:12

andreasWaltzingAlong: Thank you, that explains it. good to know. Is there a symlink to /dev/hda or are those indentifiers not usable any more?00:13
wertyops00:13
sdlnxgkbascule, very stranger indeed maybe when I upgraded KDE I forgot something will go back and look at package list00:13
gameforgeSo I am trying to run compiz in Kubuntu Gutsy but it has no window borders, and no hint of a window manager - I have gnome-desktop installed for fun, and it works great under gnome - using fglrx/ATI driver... what should I do?  Emerald and compiz are both running and not displaying errors...00:13
AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: why does my adept manager say full upgrade00:13
tomer_pok but generally speaking, how can i get the source code for some package that i install using adept00:13
basculetomer_p: well it belongs to package core-utils, so get the source for that00:13
AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: and version upgrade00:13
WaltzingAlongandreas: accessed via sda instead afaik00:13
basculesdlnxgk: kde admin or kde-admin00:13
AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: im on gutsy00:13
prakis it possible to upgrade to gutsy by booting the alternative cd?00:13
tomer_pbascule: ok how do i get the source for core-utils?00:13
Dr_willis_AT0M1CB0MB3R,  theres a bug in the package manager tool where it says you can upgrade even after you are Up to date.00:13
gameforgeYes that's another issue I'm having since upgrading to Gutsy, my adept still has a "Version Upgrade" button00:13
Dr_willis_gameforge,  ignore the button00:14
gameforgek :)00:14
WaltzingAlonggameforge: known issue00:14
sdlnxgkbascule, will give that a shot thanks for your help!!00:14
stdin!source | tomer_p00:14

ubotutomer_p: You can easily fetch a package's source with apt-get. See: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-sourcehandling.en.html00:14
Dr_willis_got to be faq #3 :)00:14
WaltzingAlongprak: start feisty. insert the cd. then upgrade from the cd00:14
Linux_Galoreanyone got a link for the Kubuntu Gutsy artwork, dare say this image http://loeil.tonsite.biz/wp-content/2007/07/sexy-ubuntu.jpg qont be the best to use heh00:14
Linux_Galorewont*00:14
gameforgeSo what about my other issue, compiz running with no window borders/trace of a window manager?00:14
andreasWaltzingAlong: hm ok, hope I remember this when I need it the first time. Thank you00:14
WaltzingAlongandreas: :D00:15
gameforgeAnd I can't seem to rotate cube or anything00:15
gameforge?00:15
Dr_willis_!compiz00:15
ubotuKubuntu is not shipping with compiz installed or enabled by default. You can still install it and have your eyecandy goodness. The instructions are at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager/CompizFusion00:15
Dr_willis_gameforge,  install emerald like that guide says00:15
gameforgeLike I said before, emerald is running00:15
prakWaltzingAlong: i'm doing just that as instructed in http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading, except i'm hitting some bugs00:15
Dr_willis_Then ya did somthing else wrong.00:15
praki mean error messages00:15
WaltzingAlongprak: such as?00:16
Linux_Galoregameforge: emerald isnt compiz its a manager00:16
Dr_willis_:) i would say restart the X serrver perhaps. and try reruning compiz --replace00:16
verveam i muted or something? or is it just no one is answering me at all?00:16
gameforgeWell, I started with beryl, then ditched that since compiz-fusion came out, but I've never been able to get it to work - I was hoping gutsy would fix it00:16
Dr_willis_well if you had beryl on there befor.. I got no idea what may be confiused.00:16
tysonswintelikey it wont work.. it is just stuck at " sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list"00:16
gameforgeI know - I run compiz, it tells me it's starting emerald, and my window borders disappear00:16
wertyif ihave ubuntu can i change to kubuntu and hpw?00:16
Dr_willis_I did a clean install of gutsy.00:16
wertyhow00:16
WaltzingAlonggameforge: but kde4 should have beryl-like effects00:16
AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: me too00:16
stdin!kde00:16
ubotuKDE (http://kde.org) is the !desktop environment used natively in !Kubuntu.

Latest KDE version is 3.5.8 for Gusty and Feisty, 3.5.6 for Edgy, and 3.5.5 for Dapper. See http://kubuntu.org for more information.00:16
Linux_GaloreI wont be using compiz until about kde 4.100:17
WaltzingAlongwerty: sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop           or through synaptic install kubuntu-desktop          then when you log in, select kde as the session instead of gnome00:17
Dr_willis_werty,  sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop00:17
intelikeytysonsw ctrl+C00:17
gameforgeI thought that, although at this point I'm working in a brand new account, and beryl is definitely uninstalled and removed00:17
prakWaltzingAlong: "unable to get exclusive lock" message00:17
AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: i really hate that bug tho :[ grrrr/rawr/moo/meow00:17
fulat2khi folks, any idea why NetworkManager is using 100% of CPU resources on Gutsy?00:17
kaminixI won't be using Compiz until I get a computer with a better chipset :p00:17
tysonswintelikey sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list00:17

ubotuprak: If Adept crashed on you and your database is locked, try this in konsole: « sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a »00:17
gameforgeLike I said before, it works great under gnome, I have gnome-desktop installed for fun00:17
WaltzingAlonggameforge: sure it is meant for gnome as far as i know00:18
UnluckyMikeI'm having problems with the default rt61pci drivers that shipped with gutsy, I'm running the serialmonkey drivers now. They work fine as long as I use the rutilt config program that they made for the driver, but when I try to manually config with iwpriv the driver dies. dmesg isn't showing anything wrong. Any ideas?00:18
basculetomer_p: apt-get source core-utils00:18
Dr_willis_theres a very good reason that compiz is NOT isntalled on Kubuntu by default. :)00:18
gameforgeWaltzingAlong: So it's an emerald issue, I believe... what can I do?00:18
AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: what does the fglrx tool do00:18
wertybut then will i be able to change between kde and gnome?00:18
WaltzingAlonggameforge: stumble through?00:18
Dr_willis_AT0M1CB0MB3R,  thts the name of the ati driver..  configures the ati stuff i would guess00:18
gameforgeDr_willis_: Yeah, I figured that much - but it's upsetting that emerald _used_ to work way back when with beryl00:18
Dr_willis_werty,  of course.00:18
VDrakejolas00:18
WaltzingAlonggameforge: (i have no compbiz on here anyway, sorry, need to ask someone else)00:18

UnluckyMikeanyone know anything bout rt61 wireless?00:20
Dr_willis_next laptop i get WILL be nvidia also.. :)00:20
edenbeastmaybe in a few years when those open sourced drivers will be kicking ass :D00:20
Dr_willis_Oakbox,  set the # of desktops using the compiz settings manager tool.  not the kde tool00:20

tysonswintelikey the problem I have is how to istall ccsm on this system.. I have already read that page and.. that didn't make me smarter00:24
tomer_pguys, there ISNT a core-utils package00:25
Dr_willis_sudo apt-get install compiz compizconfig-settings-manager00:25
hydrogenhmm00:25
stdintomer_p: "coreutils"00:25
Dr_willis_to install the ccsm tool.00:25
hydrogenwhat kind of adventures would I be in for if I tried to move my root partition from one drive to another?00:25
WaltzingAlong!partimage | hydrogen should be enjoyable otherwise dd00:26
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about partimage - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi00:26
tomer_pok found it thatks00:26
Dr_willis_hydrogen,  you would need to   boot a live cd , fix the fstab. and grub/menu.lst and perhaps remake the   initrd file00:26
tysonswDr_willis_ that doesn't work.. I have already tried.. it can't download the file either00:26
hydrogenWaltzingAlong: I know how to move it.. I'm more wonder about what would need to be updated to make kubuntu actually work00:26
WaltzingAlongso perhaps the first step is rewording the task00:26
hydrogenDr_willis_: yea, thats mostly what I thought..00:26
hydrogenWaltzingAlong: no, I asked what adventures would moving it from one drive to another cause, not how to move it from one drive to another00:27
hydrogenWaltzingAlong: the first step in responding is reading the question :M)00:27
hydrogenwhere'd that M come from?00:27
tysonswintelikey the problem I have is how to istall ccsm on this system.. I have already read that page and.. that didn't make me smarter00:27
Dr_willis_tysonsw,  it the proper way to do it. Your repos may be messed up/slow, or you need to update/upgrade.00:27
joheyedenbeast: I am not very used to configuring wireless networks. I don't really know what is what. I only know my ESSID and some key (which I thaught was a WEP key) on the form xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx where all x's are hex numbers. Isn't that enough information to set up my network?00:28
hydrogenDr_willis_: what if I wanted to install grub on the other drive and use that as the boot loader? is there a pretty way to do that in *buntu or would I just run grub-install ?00:28
Dr_willis_hydrogen,  sudo grub-install /dev/whatever00:28
edenbeastjohey yes if you set it up as using dhcp, then it'll pull all the other info from your router or your isp00:28
hydrogenokay00:28
hydrogenso theres no pretty way :)00:28
tysonswDr_willis_ the console states that the package compizconfig-settings-manager doesn't exist00:28
Dr_willis_hydrogen,  whats moving grub going to acomplish? :)00:28
* hydrogen looks around for a kubuntu cd00:28
WaltzingAlongjohey: at the console you could use sudo iwlist eth1 scanning                to see which key is expected00:29

Dr_willis_or theres a typo.. lets check00:29

hydrogenDr_willis_: I don't want to mess around with grub and multiple hd's and windows overriding and all that mess.. so I'd rather put linux on my external hd and install grub onto that.. so fi I want to boot into linux I just boot off of my external hd, if I want to run windows I boot off the internal00:29

Agent_bobcobello5 nano ?00:49
cobello5just look in /boot/grub/menu.lst00:49

Dr_willis_grub is one of those things thats WELL worth learning  about.00:49
AT0M1CB0MB3Rwell looks like im getting a new nvidia card :]00:49
Dr_willis_the grub homepage has very good docs/guide/manual00:49
whysohi! i just installed gutsy, but aptitude (and apt get) dont list any packages (even firefox :( )00:49
edenbeastBrightEyes`: the load process is defined in menu.lst like cobello5 said00:49
Agent_bobdr_willis worth learning, or not worth using.  i'd say00:49
Agent_bobpick your take.00:50
edenbeastI find the hdx,x notation very annoying :-/00:50
cobello5BrightEyes`: are you having trouble working out how to configure menu.lst00:50
Dr_willis_tysonsw,  The windows key + mouse wheel zoome in/out for me.00:50
AndyMan1is it possible (and easy) to encrypt /home on a separate partition when installing kubuntu gutsy?00:50

tysonswDr_willis_ frame*00:52
cobello5WaltzingAlong: im a bit of a linux cripple too, i need help00:52
Dr_willis_Agent_bob,  grub is useavble in   bsd that uses a different notation, its even useable by dos..00:52

cobello5i have used guarddog before on a adsl style connection with no trouble, it makes iptables quite easy to configure00:56
WaltzingAlongcobello5: sure it can be a nice layer of protection. just that kubuntu ships with 0 open ports by default. ok so i would suggest pacing yourself through the guide; at one of the screens things seemed a bit backward to me so i was always configured the firewall in the wrong direction00:56
tysonswnosrednaekim to activate??00:56
cobello5i think the problem stems from the kind of internet I have00:56

WaltzingAlongbascule: sure01:10
Dr_willis_Oakbox,  it depends.. :)01:10
fignew_Linusx: depends on what type of system info you want01:10
Dr_willis_Oakbox,  you are using Emerald themes - not kde themes for the window borders01:10

LinusxBluesKaj:  I'd like to confirm somebody ran it on an old AIO iMac if possible before giving it a shot.  Thanks01:12
Dr_willis_Oakbox,  compiz is very much a work in progess.. thats why kubuntu dident install it by default.01:12

DaSkreechLjL: I understand I can imagine being on the other end02:06
stdin_i want to help my family02:06
stdinDaSkreech: I suspect it was probably a bug in his client (has happened before)02:06
AT0M1CB0MB3Rstdin_: who cares?02:06

NickPrestathis reminds me of the bash.org quote about stabbing people through IRC. lol02:09
AT0M1CB0MB3Ryeah02:09
johey_stdin: Very nice. It works. Thanks! :)02:09
AT0M1CB0MB3Rwhat about his eprom LjL02:09

mike-kubuntuhey, all my sdl games the keyboard and mouse import is messed up02:12

Oakboxim having a bit of trouble getting amarok to use my Audigy sound card as a default, can anyone point me in the right direction?02:13
DaSkreechOakbox: Do you need the onboard sound?02:13
OakboxDaSkreech: not realy no02:14
gameforgeI did the impossible: I got compiz and emerald to work on Kubuntu Gutsy with an ATI radeon.02:14
gameforgeFinally...02:14
DaSkreechOakbox: disable it in BIOS02:14
NickPrestagameforge: congrats :)02:14
OakboxDaSkreech: ;) that would work thanks :) hehe02:14
gameforgethx :)02:14
mike-kubuntuOakbox: lots of times you need to disable the onboard for windows as well02:14
[Relic]any idea why firestarter just crashes?   I look and it is gone again  :(02:16
xipietotecanyone notice that the kde4 packages in us.archive are broken?02:17
NickPrestaxipietotec: nope. What's broken about them?02:18
[Relic]more important question, why isn't firefox seeing java is installed02:18
xipietotecNickPresta, kde4addons contains a file which is also in kde4base, and kde4addons depends on kde4base, so they error out and wont install02:19
flickis xchat the preferred irc client for KDE, or is there a kchat?02:19
NickPrestaflick: Konversation, I believe02:19
NickPrestaand [Relic] have you restarted Firefox since you installed Java?02:19
edenbeastyes Koonversation, it's under the internet menu02:19
DaSkreech!irc02:19

stdinflick: konversation is the default in kubuntu (pre-installed)02:20
[Relic]NickPresta, yep I will try uninstalling and reinstalling to check it02:20
gameforgeSo how do I solve the taskbar issue with compiz on KDE?  I.e. instead of all progs showing up on all desktops, only have the ones on the current desktop?02:20
NickPrestagameforge: right click on your taskbar > configure > Taskbar: do you have "Show windows from all screens" ticked off?02:21
crazy_busin all the past releases of kubuntu when I opened something in firefox from akregator it would just open.  But not in gutsy I have to click twice on akregator after each page to put the focus back on it.  Why is this?02:22
gameforgeHold on, I'll check02:22
gameforgeIt's unchecked02:23
NickPrestagameforge: try checking it.02:23
gameforgeOK, I tried checking it, hit apply and closed, spun the cube... still get all programs on all desktops02:23
NickPrestagameforge: hmm. no idea then. Perhaps someone else will have an answer for you shortly02:24
stdingameforge: it's a compiz bug, well known and old02:24
edenbeastwell there's noly 1 'desktop' as far as compiz is concerned :-/02:24
gameforgeYeah I remember having the issue with beryl ages ago - seems to me there was a KDE taskbar alternative somewhere, but I can't find it now02:25
OakboxDr_willis_: hi, erm i just reboted and it loaded up compiz automaticaly :S02:25
NickPrestagameforge: well, I've been using Beryl for a while now and it's never gave me any problems. CF on the other hand, didn't handle my twinview setup properly. I don't know what to say...02:25
BigDaddywell, I have spent several hours in Gutsy. So far all the crash problems I had are gone.02:26
BigDaddyEven got my /home moved to a seperate partition02:27
flickkicker taskbar buttons no longer flash on highlight after i installed compiz02:28
NickPrestaflick: yeah, that happened to me too. I don't know of a fix.02:28
=== |sparr| is now known as sparr
DaSkreechBigDaddy: \o/02:30
sparrthe new kernel seems very gaming-friendly02:30
BluesKajBigDaddy, very cool :)02:30
[Relic]this is weird, I installed the java runtime, but it keeps saying I need to install java, does that mean I just need to mozilla plugin?  or is there something else I am missing?02:31
BluesKajI never bothered with a seperate partition for /home ...I guess I should but i din't have much luck saving my settings the last time i tried it02:31
jpwhitinghi all, anyone here got nvidia drivers to load after getting unknown symbol messages when trying?02:32
Oakboxjpwhiting: sorry nv installed fine for me02:32
jpwhitingOakbox: nv works for me too, but I'd like to use nvidia, as it usually has better performance for me02:33
stdin[Relic]: have you installed sun-java6-plugin ?02:33
NickPrestajpwhiting: I use nvidia and it worked flawlessly after installing from restricted-manager02:33
jpwhitingI get messages like unknown symbol fb_dcc_read, etc.02:34
jpwhitingok, I'll try from there02:34
wertyhi02:34
NickPrestajpwhiting: uninstall any nvidia driver you have, then use the restricted-manager. give that a shot02:34
Oakboxjpwhiting: oops i did mean nvidia didnt know there was an nv as well... (shows my age in linux i suppose)02:34
NickPrestahi, werty02:34
jpwhiting:)02:34
jpwhitingk, cool, I'll try that next02:34
BluesKajinstalling java-common as well, solves quite a few probs02:35
wertywhat is better and why guarddog or firestarter?02:35
Oakboxdoes anyone have the little update icon floating in a window that you cant close and not in the taskbar?02:36
nosrednaekimOakbox: in XGL/compiz? yeah02:36
Oakboxnosrednaekim: im using compiz yeah02:36
DaSkreechwerty:02:37
nosrednaekimOakbox: yeah... it sometimes happens... i'm not quite sure why02:37
DaSkreechthe one you like better02:37
wertyi mean firestarter controls the protocols and the other one the ports....02:38
wertyi think...02:38
Oakboxnosrednaekim: ok, :) as long as its not me...  while i have your attention though :P i was told when installing compiz and running compiz --replace it would only run compiz untill i reboot...  well i did that and compiz is still running :S02:38
NickPrestaOakbox: it's probably because you have logged in and your session was restored...02:39
DaSkreechOakbox: KDE?02:39
nosrednaekimNickPresta: +102:39
OakboxDaSkreech: yep02:39
DaSkreechOakbox: It remembers what programs you had running and restores them when you login02:39
DaSkreechMuch easier than Gnome02:39
OakboxNickPresta: ok how do i do it without it reloading it :)02:40
[Relic]yay!  firestarter gave me an error, not sure what it means yet, but at least I have something to work with02:40
DaSkreechOakbox: If you want it to stop just load back up kwin and then logout02:40
NickPrestaOakbox: at the login screen, click on the menu icon and select "KDE" instead of "Default (previous)"02:40
OakboxDaSkreech: i did look at gnome but i have only just learnt what all the apps are in KDE :) hehe02:40
wertyhow does firestarter determines which ports to allow?02:41
DaSkreechWell if you were worried that compiz had become selfaware and was watching you to plt your wobble of death.. rest at ease02:41
DaSkreech KDE is just owrking to make your life easier02:41
DaSkreechWorking02:41
edenbeastanyone else having a problem with videos when using xv as the output driver? after a few videos the image turns a greensih distortion and it won't go away regard less of the player used.02:41

nosrednaekimedenbeast: are you running XGL?02:42
vbgunzsomeone please help. I've spent the last couple hours rebooting trying to automount get my external devices to automount while at the same, only allowing me and root read/write access to them. every other account should be read only!02:42
edenbeastno02:42
[ifr0g].02:42
BigDaddyBluesKaj: so far, I have just had a minor hiccup. Like Konversation not notifying me when says my name02:42
vbgunzhours on this with no results... I tried so many options in fstab it isn't funny. I cannot get what I need to work, can anyone help?02:42
basculevbgunz: set the entry to user in fstab instead of users02:42
flickguess i will stop using compiz, NickPresta02:42
edenbeastat least I don't think so, kubuntu still uses xorg right? :-/02:42
edenbeastvbgunz did you try uid options?02:43
vbgunzbascule: no joke, I tried so many different things. I set uid and gid to 1000 and that always results in permission denied02:43
nosrednaekimedenbeast: unless you are running compiz with an ATI card.02:43
vbgunzI set it to my name too and that doesn't work02:43
BluesKajBigDaddy, theres a setting in konversation that will flash red if your name is typed in the chat02:43
[ifr0g]vbgunz, what fs is it ?02:43
nosrednaekimBigDaddy: settings->notifications02:43
BluesKajnot the setting but the konv tab02:44
basculevbgunz: if you want that level of control from hald/hot-plug mount, I have no idea, static discs I can do no problem02:44
edenbeastvbgunz add02:44
edenbeast"<append key="volume.mount.valid_options"02:44
edenbeasttype="strlist">uid=</append>"02:44
vbgunzthey're all vfat but in fstab I have them as auto because they're sticks, usb cards, etc. the fs I would predict could change02:44
edenbeastto that file I talked you about earlier and then try with the uid options in /etc/fstab02:44
basculeedenbeast: nice02:44
vbgunzedenbeast: not sure what you mean, that doesn't go into fstab :/02:45
edenbeastnot that goes in /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/20-storage-methods.fdi02:46
edenbeastin the vfat section02:46
basculevbgunz: considered the mount dir as 755?02:46
vbgunzyou told me about a file before but I forgot. I found trying to mess with fstab easier but really it proved to be a pain in the ass... I always ended up with permission denied or I couldn't mount/unmount... very frustrating :(02:46
AT0M1CB0MB3Rnosrednaekim: what it do?02:46
edenbeastbut I must say if you make correct fstab setings, pmount should check there first02:46
nosrednaekimAT0M1CB0MB3R: what does what do?02:46
basculevbgunz: how many other users are actually on this system?02:47
AT0M1CB0MB3Rnosrednaekim: thats like saying whats up02:47
edenbeastcan't you just precreate mount directories with the correct permissions and have it mount there?02:47
nosrednaekimAT0M1CB0MB3R: ah :) not much.02:47
AT0M1CB0MB3Rnosrednaekim:  lol02:47
BigDaddynos02:47
AT0M1CB0MB3Rnosrednaekim: not familour wiff black slang?02:47
[Relic]stdin, Thanks, working now  :)02:47
BigDaddynosrednaekim: found it. Don't know why that setting didn't transfer over02:47
nosrednaekimAT0M1CB0MB3R: nope. sorry, i'm not gangsta02:48
AT0M1CB0MB3Rnosrednaekim: not familiar wiff black slang?02:48
stdin[Relic]: no problem :)02:48
edenbeastif all else fails you can add "<append key="volume.mount.valid_options" type="strlist">ro</append>"  that mounts it read only by default02:48
BigDaddyBluesKaj: I got it.02:48
AT0M1CB0MB3Rnosrednaekim: im Gster02:48
vbgunzmy account and my sons account. I would like read/write access to everything but restrict him to write access to his home dir. I do not want him, writing, deleting, modifying files on external devices in any way :/02:48
BigDaddyAlso wanted to let you guys know that the /home moving was a lot easier than I had feared02:48
[ifr0g]AT0M1CB0MB3R, hi02:48
BluesKajcool BigDaddy :)02:48
AT0M1CB0MB3R[ifr0g]: i thought you went to sleep02:48
vbgunzedenbeast: is there no way to handle the external device permissions from fstab alone?02:48
nosrednaekimBigDaddy: thats good! I think they should make it that way by default02:48
[ifr0g]AT0M1CB0MB3R, Could not get any..:(02:48
[Relic]now if I can figure out why firestarter is crashing I will be happy  :)02:49
BigDaddynosrednaekim: you are right. That should be linux 10102:49
AT0M1CB0MB3R[ifr0g]: dang02:49
BigDaddythe only hard part is dropping into a CLI after installation and changing the mount point.02:49
BigDaddyAs long as you print out the instructions though, piece of cake02:50
nosrednaekimBigDaddy: its far easier when you do it upon install02:51
BigDaddyI never had the option during install. Maybe if I used the alternative installation disc?02:51
vbgunzedenbeast: I am really concerned with messing with that file. I trust you but I don't trust myself. I cannot believe this is harder than I could have imagined it :(02:51
Kr4t05I have a rather complicated problem... Bare with me as I tell my sad tail:02:52
nosrednaekimBigDaddy: no... you did, you just have to do manual partitioning02:52
nosrednaekimKr4t05: its "tale" but go ahead ;)02:52
BigDaddynosrednaekim: ah... that explains it. I had that HD disconected during install02:52
BigDaddynosrednaekim: that HD also has my emergency XP installation on it. If it is hooked up during install, Kubuntu makes a bootloader02:53
nosrednaekimBigDaddy: ah...02:53
nosrednaekimI think you can tell it whcih HD to install grub on now..02:53
edenbeastvbgunz I think I found what you need :-) you'll need to read a bit but in the middle they already talk about group= optionshttp://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=16822102:54
Kr4t05It started when I upgraded from Feisty to Gutsy last night. Initially the upgrade went fine. Then, for reason even I'm not entirely sure of, I deleted ~/.kde. I expected that KDE would fall back to the default settings and rebuild things, but something went wrong. Now, I can't log back into my default user account, as it hangs at "Initializing system services". I'm currently using a secondary user account. Any help?02:54
Kr4t05I've already performed a fresh install via the Gutsy CD.02:54
BigDaddynosrednaekim: I think once I get my Zen player working 100%, my cell phone working 100%, then I will dump the windows partition completely02:55
AT0M1CB0MB3RBigDaddy: what do you do with your cell02:55
AT0M1CB0MB3RBigDaddy: i mod phones i use linux on my phone and ipod02:56
Kr4t05Does anyone have any leads on this issue?02:56
seriekrockhey you can use both ipods and cellphones in linux02:56
Kr4t05I've already tried copying the .kde file from this user account to my old user account.02:56
Dr_willis_Kr4t05,  thats odd..02:56
killer_I have a few pdf files that I would like to put all into one pdf.. any hints?02:56
nosrednaekimKr4t05: weird.02:56
Kr4t05Well, sure... That's why it has me rather irritated at the moment. :/02:57
Gun_SmokeYou know for all the install problems I've been reading about I haven't ran into a single issuse yet.. /me knocks on wood02:57
nosrednaekimGun_Smoke: lucky ;)02:57

Dr_willis_make a new usser. copy all ya data files over to his dir if his kde works. :) then chown the data files.02:57
killer_is there a tool.. something like "mergepdf"02:57
[ka]killeri have a question02:57
Kr4t05Dr_willis_: Yeah, I guess that would work.02:57
nosrednaekim!pdf02:57

BigDaddyor maybe W300i02:58
[ka]killerif i remove, and reinstall all teh files that have to do with xine, should that fix the problems im having with it? do you think the problem is with the packages themselves and not just my install02:58
Dr_willis_Kr4t05,  thebn delete the old user. :) and remake him. But i wonder if its not some permission issue going on.02:58
Dr_willis_Kr4t05,  may want to kill X. and start up kde/X with 'startx' to see if any error messages show up as a hint.02:58
atlfalcons866is kde4 going to be in the resportorys?02:58

atlfalcons8662GB is the minium in vista in my experience03:00
nosrednaekimBigDaddy: no...but they are quite well supported03:00
edenbeasthell yeah, now that was a machine :D03:00

bwaynekiller_: can't hurt.  you may be right though.  I've cat'ed iso's together before in that fashion.  might work.03:00
BigDaddynosrednaekim: the old Nomad are well supported. But my Vision W shows up as a camera03:01
nosrednaekimBigDaddy: lol, MTP should support it just fine.. did you try amarok with it yet?03:01
BigDaddythe protocol they use is a photo transfer protocol hacked for music.03:01
Dr_willis_heh..03:01
MoLernerMy videocard is displaying weird flickering artifacts after coming out of suspend in Vista. would moving to Grub + dualboot have caused this?03:01
BigDaddyI tried it on 7.04, not on 7.1003:01
Dr_willis_MoLerner,  i highly doubt it.03:02
dick-richardsonI swapped sound cards and the new one is working great...is there something I should run to remove references to the old one? depmod or something similar?03:02
nosrednaekimMoLerner: dun't think so03:02
MoLernerthanks so much03:02
Kr4t05bascule: No dice, I guess I'll have to go the deletion-recreation route.03:02
Dr_willis_MoLerner,  if you cold boot from power off to windows..  and it does work.. THEN reboot to linux/reboot back to windows and it has issues.. THEN you may have a point.03:02
basculeKr4t05: well see what's in tmp to03:02
Kr4t05But, that means passing about 50GB of music/movies and anime. :P03:03
Dr_willis_MoLerner,  but i doubt if linux has anything to do with it.03:03

Dr_willis_I found that removing compiz broke my Gnome. :()04:08
moparisthebestKr4t05, normally you can paste <= 3 lines in IRC, is that not the case in here?04:08
AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: i want to remove it so i can reinstall :]04:08
nickprestaLinux_Galore:  CF is now "updated" and "fancier" code than Beryl, since Beryl is not being worked on anymore and their enhancements have been merged back04:08
Dr_willis_AT0M1CB0MB3R,  and what will reinstalling it acomplish? Not much. this is Linux - not windows.04:09
nickprestaAt any rate, is there a package for Beryl in Gutsy?04:09
AndyMan1anyone know where to find how to install with an encrypted /home?04:09
Dr_willis_!beryl04:09
ubotuBeryl has been merged with Compiz to form Compiz-Fusion.  New Beryl installs are discouraged. See also !compiz04:09
Kr4t05moparisthebest: Well, I'm not sure how that applies... I'm not a mod, but I did notice a large "chunk" of text scroll by.04:09
Dr_willis_Guess thats a no to beryl04:09
michaelKubuntu 7.10 is more good?04:09
Kr4t05I suppose it's up to whoever is incharge.04:09
Dr_willis_more gooder :)04:09
AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: the config file makes it hard to get compiz working :[04:09
nickprestagah. I dislike that decision...04:09
Linux_Galorenickpresta: fancier lol, its just merged in code from Beryl, beryl itself had issues with compiz anyway CF just attempts to iron some of them out04:09
michaeland 7.04?04:09
Dr_willis_AT0M1CB0MB3R,  what config file?04:09
DaSkreechmoparisthebest: try apt-get install that by itself ?04:09
moparisthebestit was only 3 lines, that is usually ok, but I'll check next time in case :)04:10

AT0M1CB0MB3RDr_willis_: isnt that why i purge it?04:10
michael7.04 is good?04:10
fluffmanAT0M1CB0MB3R: also remove .compiz in ~/04:10
moparisthebestDaSkreech, same thing04:10
Dr_willis_AT0M1CB0MB3R,  purging a package will not remove users settings/config files.. what config file are you refering to?04:10
DaSkreechAndyMan1: not install then encrypt home?04:10
moparisthebestevery apt-get run it tries to install 3 packages, and all fail because they depend on acpid04:10
Dr_willis_AT0M1CB0MB3R,  if you totally messed up the compiz settings remove the users settings file.04:10
AT0M1CB0MB3Rwhat does purging do the,04:10

DaSkreechmoparisthebest: Why does it fail ?04:11
Dr_willis_AT0M1CB0MB3R, like fluffman  said.. remove the files in the users home dir. under .compiz04:11
moparisthebestDaSkreech, I assume because of "invoke-rc.d: initscript acpid, action "start" failed.04:11

fluffmanwait for kubuntu to finish booting05:27
fluffmanit may take up to 5 or 10 minutes05:27
fluffmanto see the progress, press ctrl+alt+f105:27

fluffmanyou don't have the drivers yet05:28
fluffmaninstall, then it should work05:28
Insanity^That's the thing, I can't install.05:28
AmyRoseInsanity^: If you can't get the normal one working, try the Alternate CD05:28
Insanity^Every time I try to install, it just hangs at a black screen.05:28
fluffmanare you sure it's hanging?05:29
AmyRoseInsanity^: The Alternate CD does it in text mode05:29
Insanity^I'm pretty sure. I left it for about 10 minutes.05:29
fluffmanoh05:29
fluffmanpress ctrl+alt+f1 and see where it's hangin at05:29
fluffmanor if it is at all05:29
Insanity^Alright. I'm going to download the alternate first, and try that.05:30
Insanity^What's the text command to install it?05:30
AmyRoseInsanity^: Nothing05:30
Insanity^Oh. It's just a text-based version instead of a GUI?05:30
AmyRoseInsanity^: Just do the same thing as with the normal CD, but it will take you to a text mode installer05:30
AmyRoseInsanity^: The end result is the same: a KDE desktop05:31
Insanity^Oh, I realize that.05:31
AmyRoseIt just works with more video hardware05:31
fluffmanInsanity^: seriously, try ctrl + alt + f1 first to see if you computer is even trying to read the CD05:31
Insanity^I'm reasonably computer literate, Linux just stumps me.05:31
Insanity^Alright.05:31
fluffmanmake sure it's the graphics card05:31
Insanity^I'll go try that now.05:31
Insanity^Berb05:31
AmyRoseInsanity^: Yeah, it does that to everybody at first05:31
AmyRose;)05:31
Insanity^Thanks, by the way.05:31
AmyRoseyou're welcome, Insanity^05:31
Insanity^I've always loved the Linux community ;)05:31
Les_CaesarsI just installed kubuntu on an ubuntu installation. It uses metacity for the window decorations on compiz, which I like. But I don't like the color. Where do I change that?05:31

Insanity^In case I do get it working, what's a good Linux compatible IRC client?05:32

VelvetHogProblem: This is a fresh install. The very first I tried to do is install the restricted nvidia driver via the handy wizard. I restart and get a black screen ("frequency out of range") instead of the graphical Kubuntu logon screen. I ran 'dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg' to set my driver back to nv and noticed that it IS detecting my graphics card and monitor correctly.05:34
VelvetHogI searched around and found a few people experiencing the same problem, but no solution05:34
fluffmanVelvetHog: do you know your refresh rate?05:35
fluffmanmaybe it's on your monitor05:35
CPrgmSwR2Does anyone know how distrowatch rates distros because PCLinuxOS is on top which seems odd?05:36
Les_CaesarsI just installed Kickoff, and it doesn't show any recent applications05:36
Gun_SmokeDaSkreech: still around?05:36
=== lee_ is now known as lee98632
fluffmanif you do, reinstall the nvidia driver, then edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to set the refresh rate manually05:36
Gun_Smokeor anyone point me in the right direction of kcontrol-startup05:36
VelvetHogDoes that matter for LCDs?05:36
fluffmanInsanity^: what's the verdict?05:37

phasiowhen i want the bootup and the ttys to have a better resolution i add "vga=788" in grub. in gutsy this doesn't seem to work. i am pretty much sure it's because of the "vga" option because when i delete it i have my consoles back, but with a horrible resolution. what do i do?06:27
danielvirasso... does anyone know how can I restore my compiz fusion?06:27
Naxaok thank you i will check! but actually there is no working operating system since windows installation failed06:28
judgenpolyester is great looking but i would prefer human.. is there a kde style that looks like human somewhere... ive been looking at kde-look for ages... cant find one with scróllbars and progressbars that looks like ubuntu06:28
Gun_SmokeI'm trying to add some system monitor to my desktop.. Now installing lm_sensors straight forward for kubuntu?06:29

danielvirashey, I can't use compiz manager, it closes right after it opens, anyone knows why?06:30
Gun_SmokeWhat do we use in it's place?  Still waiting?06:30
DaSkreechGun_Smoke: ^^^06:30
DaSkreechI'm a dimwit06:30
Gun_Smokedystopianray: must be why I couldn't find it..  _ for - lol06:31
Gun_Smokeback to my project.. I'm getting distracted easily tonight...06:32
ErtainOkay, I've fixed the "udved" problem.  Now every time I update my database with Adept it keeps saying a new version is available, yet I'm already up to Gutsy.06:32
Insanity^Is there anyone here that helped me earlier?06:32
Dr_willisdepends on what the probloem was. :)06:34
Insanity^Well, I was in here earlier and I was having trouble installing Kubuntu 7.10. The install CD boots, but when I try to install the OS, my screen just goes black. They suggested to use a text-based install. I did that, but now when the OS loads it leaves me at the same black screen.06:34
Insanity^Could it be my video card?06:34
Dr_williswhat is your video card?06:35
Insanity^It's an nVidia 8800 gts06:35
Insanity^So, relatively new.06:35
phasiowhen i want the bootup and the ttys to have a better resolution i add "vga=788" in grub. in gutsy this doesn't seem to work. i am pretty much sure it's because of the "vga" option because when i delete it i have my consoles back, but with a horrible resolution. what do i do?06:35
Dr_willisthats odd.. I got an 8800gts and it works fine..06:35
Insanity^it just doesn't seem to be displaying.06:35
LEE986321hmm06:35
Dr_willisInsanity^,  AHA!.. you got only 1 monitor hooked up? power down. Mvoe the  cable to the OTHER monitor conector on the card.06:36
Insanity^the hard drive is doing SOMETHING.06:36
Insanity^seriously?06:36
Insanity^do you think i have it on my secondary?06:36
LEE986321well its supose to do something06:36
Dr_willisInsanity^,  i recall it defaulting to the other dvi conector for me06:36
Insanity^AWESOME.06:36
LEE986321Amarok rocks06:36
Dr_willisInsanity^,   i use 2 monitors..06:36
Insanity^willis, if this works (and you'll know in like 5minutes when I boot the OS) i'll love you forever.06:37
Dr_willis:) i remberhaving to switch them around.06:37
Insanity^i see.06:37
Insanity^i'll be back in a second then.06:37
Insanity^w00t!06:37
Dr_willisi dont think switching the cables with the power on - is a good idea.. could try it i guess ;)06:37
dystopianrayswapping monitor cables shouldn't be a problem06:38
Dr_willisdystopianray,  well ive notcied that nvida cards might not 'see' the swap if they were powered up woth no cable attatched06:38
Dr_willisat least that what seems to happen with TV out  for me.  and some other nvidia cards06:39
dystopianrayah yeah well they may have issues like that06:39
LEE986321well i have open gl graphics06:39
Dr_willisi also noticed that with JUST a tv hooked up. the nvidia cards will default to the tv out. :) which is handy06:40
Dr_willisthey try to be smart.. but sadly some times with 2 monitors it gets backwards.06:40
Dr_willisrigth now GDM shows up on the wrong (left side) monitor.. KDM shows up on the proper one. :)06:40
Dr_williskde starts up and the splash is on the left monitor.. but the desktop loads on the right side one . heh06:41
neilHello06:41
tazzhey i am trying to install kde4 in kubuntu. I followed the instructions at http://www.kubuntu.org/announcements/kde4-beta3.php but it dosnt seem to be working. Any idea what could be wrong?06:41
Insanity^Dr_willis; it didn't work. It doesn't even work on my VGA monitor.06:44
Insanity^It's just not displaying06:44
neilI'm trying to hook up an external hard drive via USB, but it keeps coming up as Read-only (Root is the user and group, and in permissions, all it has is View permission for owner)06:44
Dr_willisInsanity^,  does the console work? 'alt-ctrl-f1' ?06:46
=== Insanity^ is now known as Morg2
=== Morg2 is now known as Morgwyr
LEE986321well i been playing with translucencey and havn't any errors..ewartating06:46
MorgwyrDr_willis; not at all06:46
MorgwyrDr_willis; it looks like it just doesn't display video.06:47
Dr_willisMorgwyr,  thats very very odd..06:47
Morgwyrshould i roll back to feisty and update?06:47
Morgwyrshould i try the alt disc?06:47
sub[t]rnlheyo06:47
Dr_willisThis was on a clean isntall? or a upgrade?06:47
Morgwyrclean install.06:47

Dr_willisYou see the grub menu however? lets get clear on exactkt wgats going on. :) for sub[t]rnl06:48
Morgwyri see the grub06:48
Morgwyri choose linux kernel 7.10, and then it hangs.06:48
sub[t]rnli ran into this, check to see if your passing any vga= in the menu.lst06:48
sub[t]rnlif he's on gutsy's default kernel06:48
Dr_willis8800gts video card. The Live CD gave black screen.. the ALternative install worked. but boots to black screen.06:48
Morgwyrjust like it did when i was trying to install the OS (i did a text based isntall and it fixed that)06:48
Gun_SmokeCan someone tell me why I'm getting this?  ./mkdev.sh: line 30: syntax error: unexpected end of file   http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/41475/   I'm trying to follow this how-to.06:49
Gun_Smokehttp://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Install-lm-sensors-on-Ubuntu-47205.shtml06:49
Dr_willissub[t]rnl,  yea. i was about to suggest editing the grub entry and have 'vga=ask' or use 'nofb' and disable   the framebuffer totally06:49
* sub[t]rnl nods06:49
Morgwyrheh. you'll have to expound there.06:49
sub[t]rnlfor some reason the framebuffer with the kernel is screwey06:49
Morgwyrlinux semi-newbie06:49
Dr_willisat the grub menu you can hit 'e' and edit the grub boot line/options06:49
Morgwyrshould i add something to the boot command line?06:49
DaSkreechnight all!06:50
Morgwyrnight.06:50
Dr_willisdelete the vga=whatever part and add in 'nofb'06:50
Morgwyrand that should fix it?06:50
Morgwyrwhat exactly does it do?06:50
shakeyhello?06:50
Morgwyr(sorry to ask so many questions. i'm just curious.)06:50
sub[t]rnlit will stop a framebuffer (vesab) and you'll...06:50
sub[t]rnlsee.. stuff..06:50
Dr_willissimiler to  kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=91c4c158-95c4-45cd-af01-78039aaf0218 ro quiet nosplash nofb06:50
Dr_willisnofb = No framebuffer06:50
Morgwyrso it'll be -nofb at the end?06:51
Dr_willisNo.. it will be 'nofb' :)06:51
shakeyon my other computer, i upgraded to 7.10, and then set up kde4 beta 3, it was very broke06:51
Morgwyralright06:51
Morgwyrthanks :D06:51
Morgwyrbrb06:51
shakeyhas anyone else tried the kde beta?06:51
Dr_willisonce ya can get to a terminal - you can install the nvidia-glx drivers from the terminal :)06:51
shakeyo06:52
sub[t]rnli hope the kernel team gets this sorted out before too long06:52
sub[t]rnl:/06:52
* shakey cries06:52
Dr_willisHmm it worked fine for my 8800gtsxxx06:52
shakeydang son, u got the 8800gts, u dont play around!06:52
Lam_Dr_willis: what does "quiet" do?06:52
sub[t]rnlgutsy's default kernel?06:52
Dr_willisLam_,  some sort of kernel error/info messages06:52
Lam_Dr_willis: ahh. ok thanks06:53
Dr_willison a gutsy clean install.. No hassles. ;)06:53
shakeyso no one else here has tried the kde4 beta?06:53
sub[t]rnl:) basically the same here06:53
sub[t]rnlbut you don't really get hassles when you've been in linux long enough06:53
shakeysub[t]rnl: how long is that?06:53
sub[t]rnli was using debian in 9406:53
shakeyoic...so thats 13 years...i got about 1 solid year...06:54
sub[t]rnlwell, I dropped off the map for a while06:54
shakeyo06:54
sub[t]rnlnow all of a sudden, the eye candy is mind blowing06:54
sub[t]rnland the people that were using linux for anti-gui, have a different tune06:54
* shakey loves cli06:54
* sub[t]rnl loves gui now06:54
sub[t]rnl:P06:55
shakeyyea, its cool, but i dont like it for my laptop06:55
shakeyon my pc though, its great, my 7900gt handles it like a champ06:55
tininWhy dont I get a notification about a new version avaliable? I enabled all repos yet07:00
Dr_willistinin,  try an sudo apt-get update   and sudo apt-get upgrade07:02
tininmmmm done07:02
tininWhile upgrading to Kubuntu 7.10 why do I need pre-released updates to do the upgrade?07:04
Dr_willisi never upgrade. i always do clean installs...07:05
Dr_willisso no idea.07:05
shakeyDr_willis: did u try the kde beta?07:06
tininDr_willis well Id like to maintain my config, but feisty is beeing buggy these last few weeks07:07
Dr_willisi aint going to botyher with the kde beta for a while. :)07:07
ccshenexcuse me, after upgrating to 7.10,my kaffeine Can't init new Video Driver opengl. what happened?07:07
tininmmmm too many errors for kubuntu? https://wiki.kubuntu.org/KubuntuGutsyComments07:07
sub[t]rnlagreed Dr_willis07:08
sub[t]rnlccshen: whats the exact error it gives07:08
Dr_willistinin,  i always keep /home on its own HD. so updating is much easier. :)07:08
Dr_williswell clean installs are much easier. :)07:08
dystopianrayccshen: what video card do you have?07:09
dystopianrayccshen: sounds like you no longer have opengl acceleration07:09
ccshenintel 94507:09
ccsheni've installed 915resolution07:10
dystopianrayccshen: you don't need 915resolution in gutsy07:10
tininDr_willis I usually do them too, I just wanted to try to upgrade, as I haavve installed it to ome friends and I was expecting kubuntu to upgrade by itself07:10
dystopianrayccshen: set kaffeine to use the xv video output07:10
ccshenbut xv still have problems-- it seems too gray07:11
MorgwyrDr_willis unfortunately, that didn't work either. i tried nofb and even vga=ask, but neither one worked.07:11
ccshenso it could be sovled after i uninstalled the 915 resolution07:11
Morgwyrit tells me the kernel is alive, says another line about the kernel, and then goes black.07:11
FireTekhey... can anyone tell me why kubuntu takes 600mb+ memory on fresh install with nothing running and does not use any swap?07:12
dystopianrayccshen: 915resolution does nothing in gutsy07:12
dystopianrayFireTek: how much of that is disk cache?07:12
Morgwyrwhat's 915 resolution?07:12
sub[t]rnlFireTek: check to see if its buffered or cache07:12
dystopianrayMorgwyr: it changes bios video modes07:12
ccshento dystopianray: ok ,i will try it.07:12
Dr_willis915 - is for Intel video cards07:12
FireTekhow07:12
Morgwyrnah, i have an nvidia.07:12
sub[t]rnlsudo apt-get install htop <-- nice program07:12
dystopianrayFireTek: pastebin the output of 'free -m'07:13
Morgwyrany ideas now Dr_willis07:13
Morgwyr?07:13
Dr_willisNope. got a spare video card? :) got an onboard video?07:13
Morgwyrshould i to ubuntu about this?07:13
Morgwyri've tried it on a vga monitor already, and my spare video card.07:13
Morgwyri have a spare nvidia 7800, which is old enough to be supporte.d07:13
Dr_willisMorgwyr,  wait,. this is affecting 2 different video cards then> what was the 2nd one?07:13
Dr_willisSame exact deal eh?07:13
Morgwyrsame exact thing.07:14
Dr_willissounding more like a motherboard/pcie issue now.07:14
FireTekhttp://pastebin.com/d2e1400ba07:14
Morgwyri have a pretty old motherboard too.07:14
Dr_willisMorgwyr,  try some other live cd's (different disrtos) see if it affects them also.07:14
Morgwyrthe motherboard is from the christmas before last.07:15
Morgwyralright.07:15
Dr_willisPuppyLinux is a nice light/fast download.07:15
Morgwyrwhat would be a comparable distro?07:15
dystopianrayFireTek: it is using 191MB of ram, with 400+MB of disk cache07:15
Morgwyri don't mind a large download.07:15
Morgwyrwell, for troubleshooting i don't even need a big one.07:15
Dr_willisPuppylinux is worth keeping in the toolbox. :)07:15
Dr_willis:)07:15
Dr_willisThe Gparted Live cd is handy also.07:15
FireTekdystopianray: why does it show almost 70007:16

ccsheni've uninstalled 915resolution. however, the kaffeine still doesn't support opengl, and my screen resolution can only be set to 1024x768(normally is 1280x800)07:22
FireTekkubuntu did not even recognize my sound07:22
dystopianrayccshen: 915resolution is not needed for gutsy07:22
juani would like to change the login screen completely, add anew one, Dr_willis07:22
FireTekI have to patch it whenever i install it07:22
dystopianrayccshen: use 'xv' instead of opengl for video output07:22
FireTekdystopianray: any ideas whats causing it07:24
ccshento dystopianray: but why my screen resolution can only be set to 1024x768 after removing that?it seems so blurred07:24
dystopianrayFireTek: no, sorry07:24
dystopianrayccshen: you'll need to fix your xorg.conf07:25
FireTekbah... i think Gateways suck!07:25
MorgwyrDr_willis; if puppylinux works, what then?07:25
FireTeklol07:25
Dr_willisMorgwyr,  well its some basic troubleshooting07:25

MorgwyrDr_willis; alright. i'll try to figure it out, then. :D07:26

Morgwyri think if it does i'll try feisty and upgrade, Dr_willis.07:27
sub[t]rnljuan: sudo apt-get install kdetheme, then go to kontrol _> system adminestration -> KDM Theme to change it07:27
dystopianrayccshen: grep /var/log/Xorg.0.log for 1280x800 and pastebin it07:27

sub[t]rnlsorry07:46
ashfaqThats the main thing, I heard about virtual machines, and you can use it in kubuntu but how and where to get, that is what I need, kubuntu as I had installed and got the feel is not a a complete windows like distro for a new bee like me for the present07:47
Les_Caesarssub[t]rnl: you don't understand. My borders. You know. Buttons that manipulate the window. How the title bar works. It uses Metacity. It's not an emerald theme. It's metacity. How do I change that?07:48
sub[t]rnlstart->settings->emerald theme manager07:48
sub[t]rnl?07:48
sub[t]rnlsudo apt-get install emerald if its not there07:49
Les_CaesarsI don't want emerald. I want to change window decorators. Compiz allows you to choose window decorators. In previous flavors of Ubuntu, I've had the option to choose Kwin, metacity, and emerald.07:50

sub[t]rnlemerald is the window decorator for compiz, it allows you to change themes, et cetra07:51
coteyruname -m07:51
Dr_willisLes_Caesars,  no idea on that. I just know that to change4 the kde window deco. I install emerald.07:51
coteyrLEE; uname -m07:52
Dr_willispreviou flavors of ubuntu used beryl - not the compiz-fusion.07:52
sub[t]rnlwell, kubuntu used beryl right07:52
sub[t]rnlcompiz was the gnome varient07:52
Les_CaesarsIt was still compiz in 7.04 though07:52
coteyrok so I ran update manager and my box crashed at around 80% of installing the packages. How can I recover07:52
LEE986321ok i am running i8607:52
Dr_williswell im out of here.  Night all.07:53
sub[t]rnlnight dr07:53
coteyrlee; sounds 32 to me i have amd86_6407:53
Les_Caesarssub[t]rnl: no. They are completely independent. it went like this:07:53
Les_Caesarscompiz was popular. Everyone used it.07:53
Les_CaesarsCompiz was outshined by Beryl. Everyone used that.07:53
Les_Caesarscompiz and beryl merge. Everyone uses compiz now.07:53
LEE986321ok  now if this serves me right all i need to do in this version is activate my drivers an it should restart07:53
sub[t]rnlberyl fork, remerge of the two to compiz-fusion07:53
LynoureShould I upgrade again? Or can I somehow make it realize I already upgraded?07:53

sub[t]rnlLes_Caesars: ah, ic07:56
coteyris there anyway i can recover?07:56

coteyris there a way to recover07:57
coteyrsorry about the repeat07:57
sub[t]rnlLynoure: heh07:58

obiwan_@templeton I had my first experiences whith linux 9 years ago but the syntax is surely the same as at this times  you use mount than the type of disk and an mountpoint and umount to unmount your device10:06
Thempletonobiwan_, had a system crash with Gutsy. Again, how to recognise which USBstick is automounted by script if devicename changes?10:06
obiwan_my idea was set off the automatically mount and do it manually10:07
obiwan_the other side is you have to mount all manually then10:08
obiwan_even your cd or dvd10:08

Thempletonobiwan_, it seems I've to search by script (or better a demon) for a marker file to distinguish the specific USBstick and read in mtab where it is mounted.10:13
ThempletonFranzmax, you have to do exactly as you do in a HD installation, using mount.10:15
FranzmaxThempleton: means i have to modify fstab and mtab first?10:15
Thonolanhello there10:18
obiwan_@ thempleton, thats a nice idea too  you can assign a name to your device to search for or you use the internal serial number10:18
obiwan_anyone here running a smartphone on ubuntu10:19
ThempletonFranzmax, no, fstab is red if the system doesn't know how to mount a device and mtab says what device is already mounted. You need to  <mount /dev/"devicename" /"mountdir">10:19

Jucatoyou can either 1. quit them before logging out or 2. exclude them from being started in System Settings -> Advanced Tab -> Session Manager (there's an entry field there to list app names) or 3. Manually autostart those that you want and start with a blank sessions10:38
Jucato!autostart | Oakbox10:39

stdin!reiserfs | titanix8812:35
chris_traene: thanks, can it run in X or not?12:35
ubotutitanix88: reiserfs is a journalling file system, which outperforms many others on I/O operations, but has drawbacks (such as increasing likelihood of data loss, and introducing latency unsuitable for gaming or real-time audio). Using !ext3, the default on Ubuntu, is *highly* recommended. A read-only Windows driver is available at http://p-nand-q.com/download/rfstool.html12:35

traenechris_: not for that :-)12:38
shoooodfirst i don't have money to pay for a prog12:38
shoooodand i guess that linux prog are free of charge12:38

Jucatoheheh if you said "with" it would be the other way around :)14:38
fluffmanok you typed everything spiroo?14:39
Jucato!doesntwork14:39
ubotuDoesn'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.14:39
spirooyes I guess so14:39
WaltzingAlongthought i corrected quick enough, guess not ;D14:39
sytholHallo14:39
fluffmannow, do cp /usr/lib/kde4/share/apps/kdm/sessions/kde.desktop /usr/share/xsessions/kde4.desktop14:39

spirooJucato: I know, but it actually does not work.14:39
bjwebbhow do i insertunicode characters using keyboard?14:40
Jucatowhat doesn't work? how doesn't it work? what are you trying to do?14:40
WaltzingAlongspiroo: had you installed kdebase-workspace ?14:40
spirooI think I did all of them, nothing happened after reboot14:40
fluffmanyes he had14:40
sytholhi everybody14:40
Jucatospiroo: you don't need to reboot14:40
spiroothe export things, how SHOULD I run them?14:40
spirooIn terminal right?14:40
Jucatospiroo: to run a single kde4 beta3 app, you need to use Konsole, enter those 4 export commands14:40
Jucatothen run a kde4 beta3 app by name14:40

juan_si14:42
spirooJucato: What actually does that mean then?14:43
Jucatospiroo: if you want to start kde4 beta3 as a full session. as in a regular kde session/login. but without starting a new X server.14:43
spirooI can read on internet, but I do not understand what it actually points to.14:43
Jucatoit will run inside a window14:43

Jucatofull session = full, normal, regular, login/desktop session14:44
spirooThe last thing then, KDE 4.desktop, does not work to edit that file and add those exportl ines14:44

ardchoilleHow can I add icons/entries to the location shown in konqueror when I go to "system:/" ?15:02
baudthief_6502_: gasp, heh - Audigy support in ubuntu is crap as is, I need sound ;\15:02

WaltzingAlongbaudthief: no luck diagnosing it?15:03
spirooHow do I start an application in plasma?15:03
_6502_baudthief: hehehe... consider that i passed from debian to ubuntu because the live cd of feisty was seeeing my soundcard with no problems...15:03
WaltzingAlongtysonsw: give google a query of that plus ubuntu15:03
ardchoilletekteen: You realise that any changes you make to the live session will be gone when you reboot, right?15:04
WaltzingAlongtysonsw: otherwise seems you can use bcm43xx15:04

spirooOkay, I guess it would be smarter if I wait then :P But it should be done in december right?15:06
azukwhee, I finally managed to install kubuntu.  is there some graphical thingamabob for configuring grub so that I can get rid of splash permanently?15:06

spirooI just want a clean desktop without the ugly grey color. Like glas look like Vista kind a, but sometimes it just get to much. KDE is so blurry :D Can I change myself?15:08
WaltzingAlongspiroo: but play and enjoy, then give the detailed feedback to the dev team15:09
spiroookay :)15:09
Jucatospiroo: the artwork for KDE 4 is far from finished15:09
spirooi guess so15:09
=== chris_ is now known as Black-Hand
juanazuk to get rid of bootsplash you have to configure your /bott/grub/menu.lst15:09
spirooI really hope they will compile the new Kopete version into KDE4 when release15:09
baudthiefoh man, Portal / HL2 ep 2 very nearly ALMOST run perfectly under wine15:09
baudthiefexcept for the weird changes in hue every second.15:10
baudthieflike everything turns green, then purple, then red15:10
baudthieflol15:10
spirooKopete is the only msn-IM that works kind a.15:10
Jucatospiroo: they will. but it's a straight, no new features added port from KDE 3 to KDE 415:10
miirThe prblem I have is that when I open settings , the first tab that opens is the webcam configuration and because my webcam won't work atm kopete just crashes ... meaning I can't add new accounts such as MSN , IRC and so on15:10
Jucatoso don't expect any fancy new feature yet15:10
spirooJucato: :(15:10
miiranyone have a good solutino ?15:10
spirooJucato: I does not want any fancy features. I jsut want it should work15:10

miirJucato: thx =)15:13
LjLjuan: deleting "quiet splash" *there* is not a good idea, because next time grub-update is invoked, they would be restored. it should be edited, rather, in the commented-out "kopt" line15:13

spirooJucato: Of course it will be15:14
JucatoLjL: it's actually working fine except for Plasma15:14

juanLjL yes, you are totally right, everytime there is a kernel upgrade i have to do it again15:15
juani don't know any other way15:15
azukjuan, I'll manage, I'm just learning all this ubuntu GUI stuff so I was hoping there would have been a way to configure these things via system settings or something like that15:15
Jucatospiroo: it's not wanna be Vista. and the features *are* the solutions15:15
spirooJust want a clean OS, not a grey oldschool one though. You can do a nice looking one without all special effects.15:16
Chairman_WowHi, I'm trying to upgrade to 7.10. Can't get the "version update" button to appear on adept.15:16

boubbinklipper keeps opening the pop-up menu when i select url in firefox addressbar, i have set that it wont affect firefox and firefox-bin etc in klippers settings, but still, how can i fix this ?15:16

abea doubt in kde4, i need to put the "exports" line at the top of /usr/lib/kde4/bin/startkde but, is really at the top? of a couple line later15:16
spirooJucato: Whats the point then?15:16
Jucatothe point is: you should research and read and inform yourself15:17
Jucatoand "don't judge a book by its cover"15:17

spirooYes I know that. But the core is not the best either.15:17
spiroookay sorry15:17
Jucatospiroo: how do you even know the core is not the best? all you've been complaining about is how it looks!15:18
LjLJucato: you don't judge the *contents* of the book, but you do judge the *usability* of the book-object itself - how likely pages are to break off, etc :)15:18
ardchoillespiroo: At least it doesn't support every virus/worm/trojan on the planet :)15:18
WaltzingAlongspiroo: better features such as?15:18
JucatoLjL: you judge a book based on its entirety. the best bound book is useless if it contains 1 letter per page15:18
Jucato:)15:18
spirooThe only feature I want is that all things should work.15:18
Jucatoit will. you're judging it too much based on how it looks and on a beta release15:19
_6502_spiroo: especially the soundcard :-)15:19
LjLJucato: and the best written book is very annoying if every page of it just flies free in the air as soon as you try to open it15:19
ardchoillespiroo: You can't guarantee that in any operating system, sorry15:19
WaltzingAlongspiroo: which things? which things do you use? connecting printers and printing right away? or video cards and proprietary drivers or what?15:19

dagulaghow can i use compiz on kubuntu 7.10????15:22
spirooIt does not support them fully I mean in OS15:22
WaltzingAlongJucato: i asked what spiroo desired of kubuntu (rather than just pretty vista-wanna be stuff)15:22
WaltzingAlongdagulag:15:22
Jucatospiroo: 1. that has nothing to do with KDE. 2. those are proprietary and not ISO standards.15:22

Chairman_WowHi, I'm trying to upgrade to 7.10. Can't get the "version update" button to appear on adept.15:23
spirooDo we speak of Kubuntu overall or KDE? A little bit confused here :D15:23
Jucatospiroo: you were talking about KDE 4 weren't you?15:23
LjLWaltzingAlong: you aren't a bot are you?15:23
Chairman_Wowcan anyone help?15:23

WaltzingAlongLjLno15:23
flaccid!anyone15:23
ubotuA large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?15:23
Jucatoflaccid: he already asked ifyou haven't noticed15:24
spirooLJL: It was why I wrote "standards" and not standards.15:24
flaccidi was expecting a better factoid15:24
WaltzingAlongLjL: just have quick ways to put some things in the channel (was very helpful for when 7.10 was released and the bots were down or extremely slow)15:24
flaccidlike 'someone will help if they can'15:24
Jucato<spiroo> Sound, Graphics, Standards (Not create new ones), better Office like KOffice, Network support should be better, Photoshop or anything which has the same GUI would be great, Something like Daemon-Tools, better torrent-tools and so on .... <---- no you didn't say "Standards" :)15:24
LjLspiroo: well, then perhaps i misunderstood you - but if you're looking for support for those "standards", that has little to nothing to do with KDE 415:24
spirooKDE and Kubuntu is quite tight up I guess.15:24
LjLWaltzingAlong: i see, i just hope you aren't triggered by ! :)15:25
swanflwhy is there no K menu in beta3?15:25
JucatoChairman_Wow: have you made sure Pre-released updates is enabled in Adept?15:25
flaccidubuntu prod = beta software :p15:25
WaltzingAlongLjL: :D15:25
Jucatoswanfl: short answer there really isn't one15:25
WaltzingAlongflaccid: all software = beta software?15:25
LjLspiroo, Kubuntu uses KDE, but they're definitely separate entities... stuff like MP3 and Flash is to be supported (or not) by Kubuntu, not by KDE15:25
swanflhi Jucato nice to see you15:25
flaccidno it doesnt15:25
spirooOkay, hmm I guess we kind misunderstood each other here. Mostly from my side I guess.15:25
swanflso in order to beate test this, I have to know the program names?15:25
swanflbeta*15:26
WaltzingAlongswanfl: sure or you can run a full session15:26
Chairman_WowJucato: didn't think you had to do that.15:26
Jucatospiroo: and specially we try not to support proprietary, non-open "standards" (which are only standards because of massive usage, not by any technical standards)15:26
JucatoChairman_Wow: if you followed the guide, you'd see that you have to :)15:26
swanflWaltzingAlong, I am running a full session15:26
swanflit finally shows a taskbar, but i can't do a thing with it15:27
Chairman_WowGuide says "Enable the "Recommended updates" and "Proposed updates" repository, close and reload"15:27
JucatoChairman_Wow: which guide?15:27
Chairman_Wowhttp://kubuntu.org/announcements/7.10-release.php#upgrade15:27
JucatoChairman_Wow: yeah propsed = pre-release15:27
WaltzingAlongJucato: so we need to rethink the details in the layer of abstraction we want users to use and know?15:27
miirMy USB-drive (Harddrive 320gb) does no mount when I plug it into the computer , as it used to do under Ubuntu... I hear the drive spin up but nothing happens ... any ideas ?15:28

spirooBut I mean like better support for bittorrent, graphics(ps, illustrator, 3d), video (.avi, quicktime, realtime, Windows-shit (I know they suck, but they is there in this world)).15:28
Chairman_WowJucato: Ok, thanks, I'll give it a shot.15:28
Jucatoagain, those are not KDE's areas of concern (at least not directly)15:28
swanflright after #!/bin/bash, directly after15:28
abeswanfl: ok , thanks15:28
WaltzingAlongJucato: the overall view/picture of what is going on with desktop computing via kde or kubuntu;15:29
swanflalso, have they removed the use of the Autostart folder in kde4?15:29
JucatoWaltzingAlong: no. but he was barking on KDE having to support this or that. at least he should be informed properly15:29
abeswanfl: are you in kde4 right now?15:29
WaltzingAlongspiroo: ok so basically an ms windows that is not from ms nor is windows is what you want?15:29
swanflin vmware, yes15:30
kukmanHow I can see the opened sockets ?15:30
Jucatospecially if he keeps on insisting that KDE *must* support these "standards" and features15:30
abei will gonna try it15:30
spirooSome problem in KDE: Languagesupport (Although it is good), the task bar could be done better, windows should autoresize after the content, better support for the graphiccards against the graphics.15:30
kaminixWhat does this error mean? ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host15:30
kaminixI was on just now, just exited to get color prompt. :s15:30
WaltzingAlongJucato: i asked what he wanted or what was missing, yeah15:30
Jucatospiroo: the first 3 are actively worked on. the last one is more a Linux driver problem15:30
spirooWaltzingAlong: Just to make it clear: I HATE Microsoft and Windows, especially Vista15:31
JucatoWaltzingAlong: basically he wants stuff that KDE itself cannot provide or does not handle15:31
Jucatooh yes, and with that hate comes the mentality of "anything shiny = wannabe Vista"15:31
abei am in kde4 :)15:31
swanflok15:31
WaltzingAlongJucato: and part of the 'kde' this or kubuntu that or ubuntu this, is for some more confusing that it needs to be. technical details that desktop users really need not know15:31
JucatoWaltzingAlong: it's a case to case situation. I don't always try to inform users15:32
WaltzingAlongi was hoping to use it as a view from the outside, not so much as a platform to explain details15:32
abebut theres no menu15:32
spirooJucato: Haha no, anything shiny != Wanna Be Vista. It is the look and feeling. Moslty the glas effects and transaprent things.15:32
abejaja15:32
Jucatook...15:32
Jucatooh yes, and with that hate comes the mentality of "anything shiny, transparent, or glassy = wannabe Vista"15:32
WaltzingAlonghm which came first ... compiz or vista ...15:32
Jucato(despite the fact that compiz was before aero)15:33
swanflthe average dumb user is gonna want a menu15:33
Jucatoswanfl: there will be a menu!15:33
WaltzingAlongJucato: exactly15:33
swanflI guess I should wait till the official release?15:33
Jucatoa beta3 is not exactly something the average dumb user is gonna want to setup and use on his own15:33
abei have a problem ith plasma, plasma appletexplorer not find15:33
swanfli found that too abe15:33
Jucatoabe: hm. yes that's an old bug... I thought I had that fixed before beta315:34
Tm_Tabe: thats what you get with unstable ;)15:34
Jucato(or rather poked aseigo to fix it)15:34
spirooJucato: Does not matter, Microsoft is so big so the thing is that Vista SHOWS more on peoples computers. It get more attention. I does not say Vista (Aero) was first.15:34
WaltzingAlongswanfl: :D no need to jump to dump but sure i know plenty of desktop computers that consider the computer to have an application so long as there is an icon to it (shortcut) on the desktop (ie not considering the menus as a way to get to them and certainly not considering typing names to start them)15:34
DaNi`M1hello, in kubuntu, who command is same function than gksudo in ubuntu?15:34
WaltzingAlongDaNi`M1: kdesu or kdesudo15:34
Tm_T!kdesudo15:34
ubotuIn KDE, use « kdesudo » (Gutsy) or « kdesu » (Feisty and earlier) to run graphical applications with root privileges when you have to. Do *not* use « sudo <GUI application> »; you can muck up your permissions/config files. For what to use in GNOME, see !gksudo15:34
Jucatospiroo: that's the implication of "wanna be Vista". that Vista was first and everything else is trying to copy15:34
Jucatoeither way this has gone offtopic too much15:34
WaltzingAlongJucato: but that is similar to linux this and that when most of gnu was first15:35
Tm_TJucato: I was just coming to that =)15:35
DaNi`M1WaltzingAlong: thanks :)15:35
WaltzingAlong!ot :D15:35
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about ot :d - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi15:35
JucatoWaltzingAlong: if you say so. I stopped arguing 5 seconds ago15:35
spirooOkay, Sorry "Vista-Feeling" then :D15:35
* WaltzingAlong had not been arguing15:35
abe!plasma15:35
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about plasma - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi15:35
Jucatoif you prefer not to educate some users when the opportunity arrives, so let it be15:35
* Jucato shuts up now15:36
