downandouthello all00:25
pedare problems with connecting from kubuntu 7.10 on internet common? I installed it on one laptop, and whether I try wire or WiFi, I can't connect to my PC with kubu 6.10 sharing inet connection. (when I boot WXP, both WiFi and wire works just as expected) ... when I tried things like sudo dhcpclient eth0, I don't see any RX packet on the PC side on that one eth0 ... any ideas or what I should try next?00:25
downandoutcan someone tell me the name of the config file where kontact defines the spamfilter software it can use? Kontact isn't detecting spamassassin and i remember last time I had to change the path in that config to detect it00:26
onishidatocan someone show me some mp3 player you usually use? i'm gonna hate Linux now.... grrrr00:27
downandoutnevermind its kmail.antispamrc00:27
downandoutgood old help files :)00:27
MidMarkped: depends, do you connect to a router or to what?00:31
BluesKajonishidato, do any other players work ?00:31
onishidatoi use mplayer and it works00:31
downandoutjust a little suggestions for kubuntu change kmail.antispamrc "PipeCmdDetect=spamassassin -L" to  "PipeCmdDetect=spamassassin -V"00:31
downandoutIt will fix the detection of the antispam in kontact00:31
pedonishidato: I use amarok, works for me, but I used automatix or some ugly script like that back than when I was installing this 6.10 ... I'm trying to migrate to 7.10 lately, but lot of work with it and I'm too busy to finish it anytime soon.00:32
BluesKajok onishidato , then reinstall amarok with adept00:32

pedMidMark: notebook doing problems: asus S96Fm (rebranded as HAL3000, local brand probably) ... ethernet + WiFi ... in WinXP both works, the wire automagically, the WiFi after entering my password for WE P.... I booted up 7.10 liveCD, installed on disk, rebooted ... tried to connect. All I get is after several seconds the avahi-like IP. (both eth0 and wifi eth1 interfaces, whichever I try) ...00:36
pedMidMark: on the PC side when I check ifconfig eth0, there's no RX packets arriving at all from notebook. (when I try to run sudo dhcpclient on notebook .. it's writing it's sending dhcp requests several times.. .but no RX packet at all on PC side)00:37
onishidatoi'm trying to install it again00:38
Kingzaris there anything about external harddisk formated under windows?00:38
pedMidMark: looks to me like either something's horribly broken in my 7.10 installation (but it's clean install from CD), or both WiFi and ethernet card drivers are bad on the CD and need recompile to work correctly.00:39
MidMarkped: ok wait a minute pls00:39
pedMidMark: should it work without anything special? I mean connecting the wire to ethernet, with DHCP server on second side? There's no magic "allow internet" button in 7.10, right?00:39
MidMarkno00:40
MidMarktryied to ping www.google.it?00:40
MidMarkor ping other machine?00:40
pedmaybe the HW is badly detected... :/ ... pity I don't have any papers from that bug, I will probably check WXP what devices are there.00:40
pedMidMark: it's dead.. no gate, no DNS ... when I let the Knetworkmanager to connect, it ends with avahi-like self DNS config.  ... didn't try ping on my PC eth0 IP directly though.00:41

pedonishidato: UTF-16 is used mostly in MS windows only, and as it is both more difficult to handle for old ASCII apps (UTF-8 works most of the time with legacy applications too), and yet it does not cover all characters (just like UTF-8), I don't think it has any serious future.

junkieWhich doesn't seem right01:44
junkieIt's there, alright01:44
pedjunkie: that's good.. if it would be missing there, it would be definitely gone. So the problem is probably with "refit" (I don't know that piece of SW at all, sorry)01:45
pedjunkie: mind you, maybe it's good time to mount that OSX partition in linux (probably as read-only for safety), and copy any important data on some USB or CD/DVD ;)01:46

draikHello all02:45
draikHow do I keep the router IP and my IP address in Network Manager?02:46
fulat2kdraik: use static ip.02:46
draikEverytime I boot, I have to enter the router IP along with the configuration of my IP02:46
draikfulat2k: I do, but it keeps "forgetting" my router IP02:46
draikI don't have 'net access when I login02:46
mjussfears some idea?02:47
sfearsohh.. my bad.. let me look02:47
sfearsi'm wondering why you have so many usb devices listed in your /media folder02:48
mjusi dont know02:48
fulat2kdraik: uhh... where do u set ur router IP?02:48
sfearsopen konqueror.. naviage to /media.. right click on those usb devices & see if there's an unmount or eject option02:49
sfearsif there is unmount all of them02:49
sfearsonly the usb devices02:49

refreshrateill install firefox, and itll work for a couple reboots, but then i get a bus error, i reinstall firefox and itll work again for a couple reboots. what gives?02:50
sfearsare you 100% sure you don't have any other usb devices plugged in.. printer/modem/camera?02:52
draikWhy am I losing my router's IP address after every boot?02:53
sfearsare you hard wired to it draik?02:53
sfearsor are you using wireless?02:53
draiksfears: hard wire02:53
sfearswhat do you have to do to connect?02:53
draiksfears: Enter the router IP, disable ethernet device and then enable it again to get an IP02:54
sfearsand you pay extra to your ISP to have a static IP?02:55
sfearsyou normally don't need to specify an IP.. it assigns automatically02:55
sfearsit's called a dynamic IP02:55
draiksfears: It's not static.02:55
sfearsalright.. then you can proally skip the specify IP part02:55
sfearsyou just need to tell your computer to optain automatically.. and let it know to connect.. should be able to set any of that in knetwork manager?02:56
draiksfears: Ok, but how do I make it stop forgetting my router IP?02:56
sfearsdo you have knetwork manager install02:56
draikYes02:56
sfearsit doesn't matter if it forgets.. you just need to tell it to grab one when you boot up02:56
sfearsit may always be different.. so if it forgets it's ok.. it will just obtain a new one02:57
draikHow do I make it obtain an IP when I boot?02:57
draikThat's the issue02:57
sfearsi'm looking02:57
sfearsright click on your knetwork manager icon & manual config02:58
draikOk02:58
sfearsin the network interfaces tab highlight your connection eth0 or wlan2 or whatever it happens to be.. & configure interface02:59
draikOk02:59
sfearsset tcp/ip to auto make sure dhcp is selected in the drop down & make sure activate when computer starts is checked02:59

sfearsyour welcome03:05
sfearstomas_.. ctrl+alt+f1 to terminal and type "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" that will ask you a couple of questions about your video, mouse & keyboard hardware.. answer the best you can.. when it asks about the video driver pick vesa and when it gets to resolution settings pick 800x600 or 1024x768.. it may be a video driver conflit.. those settings are very basic03:07
sfearsthe vesa @ 800x600 are very basic settings03:08
sfearsyou may lose some of your advanced hardware effects but at least you may be able to boot into your system03:08

jalberthey everybody03:12
jalbertI'm psyched03:12
sfearshello jalbert03:12
sfearspsyched about what?03:12
jalbertI just made a Skype call on my Kubuntu laptop03:12
sfearsnice.. worked well?03:12
jalbertyeah03:12
jalbertworked great03:12
jalbertbetter than it ever did on Windows03:12
sfearsi've been thinking about getting some kind of voip account.. haven't quite made up my mind yet03:13
sfearswhat was better about it?03:13
jalbertthe person on the other end said I sounded good03:13
sfearssound quality?03:13
jalbertyeah03:13
sfearsyeah.. cool03:13
jalbertno breaking up, no lag03:13
jalbertno weird modulation distortion03:13
sfearsthat's surprising.. shouldn't make must of a difference.. might have a diffferent priority set on linux03:13
jalbertI wonder if they've upgraded their vocoder software or something03:14
sfearsyou can do the same thing on windows.. ctrl+alt+delete.. and from the processes tab right click on the skype process & set to highest priority.. might clear up your windows issue03:14
BluesKajprolly written on and using linux servers03:14
jalbertwell I think the AV software I was running probably had something to do with it03:14
jalbertthis is a 2.8 GHz P4 laptop03:15
sfearscould be a million things.. glad to hear it's working good though03:15
jalberthey is there an easy way to delete an erroneous mount-point?03:15
sfearsedit your /etc/fstab file03:16
jalbertdid that already03:16
jalbertI guess I'm going to have to look it over again03:16
jalbertmust have missed something03:16
sfearsdepends what you mean by mount point.. an actual mount point is a partition03:16
jalbertwell, I have an alias in a directory that points to the wrong place03:17
sfearsthe only way to delete a partition is to edit your partition tables.. if by mount point you mean a hard drive that shows up on your desktop.. then it's proally something you misssed in your fstab file03:17
jalbertit's actually the alias I have to get rid of03:17
sfearsthat might be a little different03:18
DragnslcrThe mount location is usually just a directory, isn't it?03:18
Dragnslcri.e. /media/whatever03:18
sfearsyeah.. but some directories are actually physical partitions03:18
DragnslcrSo you should be able to just rmdir /media/whatever03:18
sfearslike your /home folder.. is a physical location on your hard drive03:19
Dragnslcr(after you've unmounted the partition, of course)03:19
sfearsusually03:19
DragnslcrSort of03:19
sfearscorrect03:19
DragnslcrIt's actually the physical partition that's mounted to the location /home03:19
sfearsin the /home case it is03:19
DragnslcrYou could unmount it, delete /home, and mount the partition again at /house if you really wanted to03:20
DragnslcrStuff that looks for /home would break, of course, but that's a different issue03:20
sfearsnot sure on that one.. i think it's defined in the partition table.. so you might not be able to change the name.. i think that's basic how linux works kinda stuff.. has to have a /home folder to function03:20
lovedeatmim using gaim..is the anyway to have it sense a message that has been sent and have it react tot hat message. so for instance if someone said hey that woudl tell gaim to shutdown?03:21
DragnslcrWell, /home is a bad example because so much system stuff depends on it03:21
sfearspost your fstab file to pastebin if you want me to take a look at it.. i'll see if i see something in there03:21
DragnslcrAs far as I know, the mount location isn't stored in the partition at all03:21
sfearsas far as your alisa no it's not03:21
sfearsalias*03:22
DragnslcrIt's fstab and friends that define what directory the partition is mounted in03:22

Linux_Galorellutz: I asked a question, still waiting for a sane kde answer10:12
elisianoDaemon--: it's not the videocard, I think there's something wrong in how the VM host tells the resolution to the VM guest10:12
llutzLinux_Galore: that's not a kubuntu related thing, ask in #kde10:13
Daemon--elisiano - ok so i should try another VM ?10:13
atwo1omfg10:13
atwo1its fixed10:13
Linux_Galorellutz: #kde channel is locked especially if you ask questions like, are there any enterprise grade email client for kde, they go into melt down and boot you out10:14
atwo1WTF10:14
atwo1i go to normal res the native res and the screen goes halfway off the monitor10:14
atwo1WHYyyyyyy10:14
Linux_Galoreatwo1: reset the monitor, the monitor sets itself defined in the original vga screen10:14
llutzLinux_Galore: so it's not wanted then. sit down and write a client, it's opensource10:15
Assidhey10:15
Linux_Galores/in/on.10:15
Assidthat livecd is majorylu messed up10:15

Linux_Galorellutz: just pointing out how insane kde is, you have a nice web browser and cd/dvd burner apps even thanks to kde 4 lots of bouncing icon effects, but not one single email client that is the basic app needed for a desktop that does html like every professional email app out there10:19

elisianoDaemon--: did u get any further?10:40
Daemon--no buddy :(10:40
Linux_GaloreVoyage__: to set the default browser from Dolphin to konqueror in Kcontrol go to KDE Components->File Association, then in the list click and expand "inode", then expand "Directory"10:41
Assidatwo1: if it doesnt work out, just go to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and edit it there10:41
Linux_GaloreVoyage__: in the application preference order window to the far right make sure konqueror is at the top of the list10:42

TimSIt asks for the password in GUI and then downloads and installs the package12:59
dilsehi, this is more of a developer request than a user question: in KMenu -> System Settings -> User Management, if I sort by UID by clicking the column head, it sorts by ASCII first instead of a numerical sort (so 1, 10, 1000, all show up before 6)12:59

atwo1ok13:03
atwo1i just done this13:03
atwo1As of Kubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) the recommended way to install the binary driver is to open System Settings KMenu ? System Settings, go to the Advanced tab and click Restricted Drivers. Then click the Administrator Mode button and check the box marked Enable to install the driver. This should install the right package for your card and set it up for you.13:03

atwo1am i missing half the convo here13:06
TheFishyhow do i figure out what windows belong to what proccesses?13:06
eljefe_hmm... i think System Settings is a part of KDE4, but most of its parts are made up od KControl anyways.  Yeah I'd say with KDE people.13:07
sub[t]rnlTheFishy: you can use "top" to see current processes.  If your looking for something specific, you can use "ps". ex: ps ax|grep findthis13:07

stdinfzydf: the intel drivers are included14:37
sigmastdin: do the intel drivers for kubuntu give full 3d support?14:38
stdinsigma: yep, that's the good thing about having opensource drivers from intel :)14:38
fzydfhow do I know they are running and not like the VESA drivers or something? Because redraw seems slow for accelerated support.14:38
dreadthe ones from ati / nvidia kinda lack...14:38

snarkstersigma__: ATI Radeon IGP 330m/340m/350m14:39
sfearsfzydf, ctrl+alt+f1 to bring up terminal & "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" will let you reconfigure your video drivers14:39

NetersLandreaui have trouble occasionally getting the fish kioslave to connect to a remote server.. is there a way to force a connection?14:39
stdinfzydf: you may want to upgrade to something later than 6.06, however, to get newer drivers14:39

sigmastdin: yes i remember my SIS days, it was even bad on windows with the proper drivers! whats so bad about nvidia? seems to work perfectly with my card (the proprietory ones from the repo that is) - are you referring to the opensource nvidia ones?14:42

TheFishynot completely...14:46
sigmastdin: ah i see what you mean, but i see most of the complaints are for the really new cards. do u think the opensource ati ones will ever get close to proper 3d acceleration? they are my last hope since ati stopped supporting my mobility radeon in fglrx, but i have noticed the ati driver getting faster over the releases, but the question is will it get to full 3d?14:46

fzydfDreadKnight: you mean like Microsoft? cuz I meant under Linux.15:17
Daisuke_Laptopso...  sudo cp ~/downloads/alsa-* /usr/src/alsa/15:17

Daisuke_Laptopyou don't need the leading slash before ~, as that already includes it15:17
DreadKnightfzydf: yeah... pretty much all qt4 applications will get ported15:17
newuserdo I need to be in the alsa dir in term or does it matter]15:17

TheFishystdin: it gives me the error that kde is already running16:11
stdinlousygarua: many, many people do. and if your CSS is actually valid to a standard it will work in konqueror16:11
Daisuke_Laptopa lot of people use konqueror, and it's a pretty well standards compliant browser.  every one has its own quirks, of course16:11

Daisuke_Laptopsnarkster: add them to the audio group16:25

lingardso it should just be sudo -i /etc/samba/smb.conf ?16:26

DreadKnightlingard: sudo -i is to start an administrative session... otherwise just use sudo16:26
snarkstersudo vi /etc/samba/smb.conf16:26

snarksterhmm whats the matter with vi?16:27
DreadKnightif you upg ubuntu you don't get it installed.... just from new version cd install xD16:27

DreadKnighti used gedit all my ubuntu/gnome life xD16:27
dthackercheguevara:16:28
dthackercheguevara: pong16:28
cheguevaradthacker: just got interesting in that bug 'cause that behaviour annoyed me also16:28
snarksterwell i understand your point, but vi is a common editor, and most linux users should know how to use it.  I didnt know nano was installed by default16:28
cheguevaraand the fact that since its in KDE4's dolphin makes it worse16:28
DreadKnighti love dolphin / kde xD16:29
DreadKnightand a while ago i was refering to KDE as "krap" :\16:29
dthackerI tested by selecting all files dir, then doing "sleep 15: touch foo" to watch when new file created16:29
cheguevarabut there's no point of the launchpad bug it needs to be upstreamed16:29
snarksterdolphin isnt bad, but isnt it surpurfilous?16:29
DreadKnightsnarkster: what do you mean?16:29
cheguevarayeah dthacker i just did the same16:29
cheguevarait refreshes and selection is gone16:29
snarksterkonqueror works as a file browser as well.16:30
snarksterwhat is the difference16:30
SSJ_GZsnarkster: Many people utterly despise Konqueror and refuse to use it.  No accounting for taste, I guess, but there we go :)16:30
snarkstergood point16:30
stdinsnarkster: in kde4 konquror used the dolphin-part for file management, so using konqueror as a file manager is surpurfilous16:30
snarksterah.. well whatever it works16:31
lingardgrr16:31
DreadKnightwell, liked the idea of universal manager/viewer when started to use kubuntu, but i love dolphin...16:31
lingardit still says i'm on the mshome network16:31
DreadKnightokular will also be great16:31
snarksterlingard is there a mshome network in your house?16:32
lingardnot at all16:32
BluesKajSSJ_GZ, konq suffers abit in the eye candy dept and in my experience is slower than FF even with IPv6 disabled , but I still feel safer using it .16:32
cheguevaradthacker, question is does konq in kde 3 do the same thing?16:32
DreadKnightmy ISP links me in a network with all the pcs nearby16:32
snarksterlingard do sudo apt-get install smb4k16:32
dthackercheguevara: hmmm let me try....16:32
cheguevaradthacker, thx, cause i am on kde4 right now16:32
lingardalready installed16:33
snarkstersmb4k should allow you to see all smb networks and computers.16:33
lingardwhen going into remote places > samba shares > mshome   and it shows this machine16:33
=== drif__ is now known as drif
lingardit does16:33
snarksterthat means that your computer is the only one on the mshome network.16:33
lingardbut i'm unable to access shared files from remote machines16:34
lingardi changed the smb.conf to my home network16:34
snarksterif you edit the smb.conf file and change your network name and then restart smb youll change networks.  Of course Im old style and edit it by hand but im sure there is some admin tool in here that you can use.16:34
dthackercheguevara: no, konq keeps all the original files selected and shows foofoo.txt as unselected16:35
lingardhow do i restart it?16:35
snarksterlingard: youll need to restart smb then with service smb restart16:35
cheguevaradthacker, ah good, so we can push it as a regression :P16:35
lingardhow?16:35
snarksteropen konsole and type sudo service smb restart16:35
snarksterwow that didnt work16:36
dthackercheguevara: cool :D16:36
lingardsudo: service: command not found16:36

johnjust fiddle something and apply16:40
dthackercheguevara: ok, let me know, I'll be around for several hours watching tutorials16:40

DreadKnightTaggnostr: or just fire add/remove programs from the K menu and install your desired applications ;)17:53
Taggnostrwith gnome i had just a few games, when i installed kde i had 5-6 category of games and each category has 5-6 games, are these programs part of ubuntu-desktop or kde or what?17:54
Taggnostralso lot of them starts with K17:54
Dustmopsudo apt-get install kdegames17:55
Taggnostrok17:55
Taggnostrso i should reinstall those packages17:55
DreadKnightTaggnostr: ubuntu-desktop (which are gnome applications i don't recommend having under kde, but kde4 (11 january - release date) will also have games17:55
DreadKnightTaggnostr: probably the kdegames are different from the gnome ones, not sure17:56
DreadKnightabdulla: what's that vector image on your desktop? tha one with the moon? can you email it to me? ^^17:57
Taggnostron kde+ubuntu i also have categories like edutainment, games, graphics and so on17:57
DreadKnightTaggnostr: it's kubuntu or ubuntu? :P17:57
casey_this isnt working gah17:58
Taggnostrubuntu, but i installed kde and i get all these programs with names starting with K17:58
DreadKnightTaggnostr: (k)ubuntu is not windows, well most linux distros have nicely arranged start menus17:58
DreadKnightyou kinda made it messy xD17:58
DreadKnightoh well17:58
Taggnostrso if kubuntu use kde there should be all these "K" programs, isn't it?17:58
DreadKnightyes, but it;s not nice to install kde on ubuntu, just install the kubuntu distro which uses kde17:59
TaggnostrXD17:59
DreadKnightbecause you get both packages... the gnome and the kde ones.. and it's a total mess17:59
Taggnostris what i did, but i don't have those programs17:59

Taggnostrok, and if the aptitude is used by something else? i got this error while i was trying to open add/remove programs18:37
Dr_willisonly ONE program that is using the package managing (apt) system can be running at a time18:38
Taggnostri know18:38
Dr_willisclose out all package manager tools. and only use one. :O If theres a stale lock.. then...18:38

Taggnostri started the add/remove programs after a reboot and i got that error again18:39
apacheloggerDreadKnight: also there is a point in developers not to maintain the packages18:39
Dr_williskiiz,  if you remove/reinsrt the cd. does it pop up a dialog to view the contents?18:39
apacheloggerDreadKnight: usually a distro maintainer knows better anway, plus it reduces work18:39
apacheloggerDreadKnight: so every app should just have a packaging squad ;-)18:39
kiizDr_willis: yes it does18:40
DreadKnightapachelogger: well, i filed lots of bugs with the "upgrade" tag on launchpad... lazy packaging squads they are18:40
Dr_williskiiz,  then it should be mounted.. thats an odd error. Of course any packagtes on the cd. may be a bit out of date now. Its best to just let apt download them from the internet.18:40
apacheloggerDreadKnight: get in contact with the actual package maintainer18:41
nareshovstdin: this line "Xephyr :1 & export DISPLAY=:1; xterm" doesn't work for me18:41
apacheloggerDreadKnight: if he doesn't want to maintain it anymore you/he might as well as for a new maintainer18:41
