Evil_sfears: what would happen if I didn't unmount it and shutdown?00:01
sfearsshould unmount automatically.. you will need to remount on startup00:01
ardchoilleEvil_: file systems get unmounted during shutdown anyway00:02
=== genii_ is now known as genii
sfearsit's a good idea to unmount drives while your not using them though00:02
sfearsmabey not a good idea to unmount.. but not a bad idea00:02
sfearsif it loses power for some reason in the middle of doing something could corrupt some files.. should really worry about it though00:03
Jyzygzel-why won't the sounds work in any of the KDE games00:03
sfearsshouldn't worry about it00:03

NDPTAL85Can you actually install from the Kbuntu KDE 4 LiveCD?00:07
sfearscan you install kubuntu from the kubuntu live cd?? is that your question? if so the answer is yes00:08
Jyzygzel-why can't i hear any sounds??00:09
NDPTAL85Yeah thats my question but this isn't the regular Kubuntu live cd. Its the one with KDE 4 on it00:09
NDPTAL85I loaded the CD fully and didn't see an option to install00:09
sfearsthere should be an install icon on the desktop00:09
NDPTAL85There wasn't00:10
sfearsyou booted from the cd?00:10
Evil_sfears: I can't download SP2 from linux, need IE00:10
NDPTAL85I could see the lovely KDE 4 desktop00:10

Evil_Someone told me to download it to the partition and install it before the network drivers00:11
NDPTAL85martijn81: Ahhh. So I have to install regular Kubuntu and then install KDE 4?00:11
Evil_I thought you did, lol, sorry00:11
Evil_umm, wrong place >.>00:12

killermachthe adept updater fails to install Gutsy to my Fiesty machine, some core dump regarding debconf,00:12
martijn81NDPTAL85: currenty: yes00:13
killermachlast update I did from Edgy to Fiesty someone gave me a command line to upgrade which worked..can someone help me w/ this? thanks00:13
BluesKajEvil_, gotta be in windows to DL XP-SP200:13
ardchoillekillermach: If you do it from command line, you'll end up missing things which are new t Gutsy but weren't in Feisty00:14
Evil_No way to get it to the NTFS partition from livecd? :(00:14
BluesKajEvil_ never heard of such a thing ...MS doesn't take kindly to browsers or DLmanagers on linux00:15
Jyzygzel-why apt-get install iceweasel not work?00:15
killermachardchoille: ok.. I have 7.10 CDROM, can do a full install, but I need some pointers on migrating my current settings to the new install..any tips?00:15
Jyzygzel-i need a browser00:15
Evil_lol, k, thanks for all the help guys :)00:15
BluesKajJyzygzel-, use konqueror00:16
martijn81Jyzygzel-: there is firefox00:16
Evil_BluesKaj:  I need ActiveX00:16
ardchoillekillermach: What I did was back up $HOME and then copy desired files back into the new system. Seemed to work ok here.00:16
dylan_killermach: make sure you use the same user and group ID (not just name) on your new system for each user, or you'll have a lot of difficulty in transferring things.  create the users in the same order and you should generally have identical UID/GIDs.00:17
BluesKajEvil_ if ya wanna play activeX platform games , do it on a windows installed partition00:17
Kingzarcan you setup Kontact with hotmaiL!?>?00:18
BluesKajKingzar, set hotmail to send your hotmail email to k-mail ...It's easy to do with gmail , but I've never used hotmail00:20
martijn81Kingzar: i believe only if you sign up for a paid service00:20
BluesKajwho would pay for hot mail anyway ?00:21
martijn81there was a tool for it under windows though, libpopper3 or something like that,  can't remember anymore....00:21
killermachardchoille: thanks00:21
Kingzaralright i read some google too you have to pay indeed for pop300:21
ardchoillekillermach: yw00:21
martijn81indeed, there is gmail00:21

dylan_killermach: ive had nightmarish situations trying to transfer files but also wonderfully simple ones when i followed that rule.  also make _sure_ you dont put them on a non-linux filesystem for backup if you want to preserve the permissions - otherwise everything will be executable, and youre lucky if thats the only issue you have.00:23
Jyzygzel-how do i map my mouse thumb button to do stuff?00:23
abdullais theyr a way to transfer ? BluesKaj ? or maybe tell me if i can get hotmail to my thunderbird app ?00:23
killermachdylan_: a "non-linux system"? people still have those?? :)00:24
abdullaJyzygzel-, you want to make the side buttons for back forward in firefox right?00:24
dylan_killermach: some of us play games, you know.  wine and cedega arent up to par for most of em.00:25
Jyzygzel-i have to find them to Alt + Left + Left00:25
Jyzygzel-and Right00:25
PasteL OpenArena rooooooooox00:25
Jyzygzel-i jsut don't know how00:25
abdullaJyzygzel-, i dunno if theyr is an app to do this , but i was wondering myself , i think the only binding place for things like mouse keyboard will be in /etc/X11/xorg.conf , go fo kdesudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf00:25
dylan_killermach: and watch out, cuz external hard drives come formatted fat32, even if theyre WAY too big for the fat32 specification.  they just force format em.  :-P00:25
Jyzygzel-nah it does not work00:26
ardchoillePasteL: And it's in the repos :)00:26
abdullaPasteL, OpenArena is multiplayer?00:26
killermachdylan_: yep just showed my cousin how to setup world of warcraft  on wine.. well actually we googled up an ubuntu forum :)00:26
Jyzygzel-the xorg.conf if complete waste of time00:26
Jyzygzel-u never know what to write there00:26
dylan_killermach: hows the performance, compared to on windows on the same comp?00:26
abdullai know but i guess if you google you will know , i havent googles yet im lazy about this issue since 8 months now00:26
ardchoilleJyzygzel-: There is a nice cinfigurator to help with xorg.conf: sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg00:26
abdullaardchoille, OpenArena similar to Quake3 CPMA?00:26
dylan_killermach: ie whats the fps in shattrath?  ;)00:27
killermachdylan_: good advice.. I reformat mine ext3 to avoid infections  from peoples winboxes00:27
ardchoilleabdulla: No idea00:27
Jyzygzel-but it wont configure my mouse buttons00:27
abdullahow many MB? ardchoille00:27
ardchoilleJyzygzel-: Ah, ok.00:27
dylan_killermach: its also good for privacy since windoze doesnt recognize even ext2 ^.^00:27
BluesKajhotmail doesn't do forwarding and pop , then keep your hotmail if you don't want to lose your contacts ...it's not so hard to bookmark your hotmail acct on om your browser toolbar00:27

hdevalencehow do I tell konqueror to not play music or animations?00:27

BluesKajI tried it for 10mins one day00:30

abdullayou know with gnome you can hack the panel to act like apple , can kde do the same or you just tick the MAC os X feature?00:48
ardchoilleabdulla: Yes, I use the feature of kde00:49
Kingzari cannot seem to move my systray around.. is there a reason for this?00:49
abdullaso its still not 100 % yet00:49
ardchoilleKingzar: Just to the left of the systray, there should be a small bar that you can grab and move the systray00:50
Kingzarproblem is it doesn appear00:50
abdullaif you tried apple .. you will know what i mean, but if you tried a Gnome hacked panel ( apple customization ) you will not notice00:50

linuxmceWhen adding new SATA drives what type should they be? EXT3?01:10
godzeroI'd use ext3, only because it's stable and well supported.01:11
linuxmceWhat about the mnount point? Just \01:11
godzerolinuxmce: Sorry. I steped in in the middle of your question. What is you user case?01:12
linuxmceI added two sata drives to a LinuxMCE box - just going to use them for storage for audio / video01:12
godzeroI'd mount them in /mount or /mnt01:13
wintermute_any out there have a Toshiba Satellite A215?01:13

godzero"/mnt/sda1 and /mnt/sda2 for example. If you have other drives that are not PATA - you might want to mount them as /mnt/sata1 and /mnt/sata2. The name is anything that makes sence to you"01:16
godzerolinuxmce: I use /mount/external_101:17
linuxmceThere internal drives :)01:18
linuxmcewhat about the mount point though:01:18
godzeroyou can mount the thing as a subdirectory in any existing directory, even /etc/my_stuff is legal01:19
dor0guys, there is any applet to show me the network connexions in tray bar like in windows?01:20
linuxmceI guess I just don't understand. Mount Points, Type, Device - I need to put stuff in there and If  I don't  it ask me to add loops01:20
wintermute_mine already does off a fresh install01:20
godzerolinuxmce: First step is to plug it in, and format it. I suggers using "qtparted" to format it. Install it. Power down. Plug in your drives. power up, login. run qtparted. Format your new drives (they should stick out like sore thumbs in the left pane). Write down thier paths (like: /dev/sdc and /dev/sdd) on a piece of paper, and come back.01:29
linuxmceThe drives are plugged in and I know what they are - I just don't know how to start qtparted01:30
godzeroinstall qtparted, alt-f2, kdesu qtparted.01:31
linuxmceI think it is installed already01:31
linuxmceor not01:31
linuxmcehow do I install01:31
godzeropress "ALT-F2", type "kdesu qtparted" in the box. Enter your password.01:32
linuxmcesounds the command not found01:33
linuxmceso must not be installed01:33
jhutchinsUm, we're not trying to run qtparted from the drive we're working on, are we?01:33
jhutchinsoh, good.01:33
linuxmcejust tryint to install it - don't know how01:33
jhutchinslinuxmce: apt-get install qtparted01:33
jhutchinslinuxmce: or better sudo aptitude install qtparted01:34
jhutchinsYou'll need sudo in any case.01:34
godzeroto install: open the konsole, type "apt-get update" press enter. ***password**. Wait.  Type "apt-get install qtparted". press "y" anytime it asks.01:34
jhutchinslinuxmce: So what are you installing it to?01:34
jhutchinsgodzero: sudo01:34

godzerolinuxmce: what do you want? 1 big space, or several smaller spaces?01:40
linuxmceBig Space - It will hold the DVDS that I rip - it's 500GB01:40
godzeroprimary partition (and I didn't need to know that).01:41
godzero1 big partition01:41
linuxmceand use ext301:41
godzeroyes, If only used in a Linux environment.01:42
godzeroext3 it is, then01:42
linuxmceDo I have to format it after I create the partition?01:42
godzeroa few seconds is all01:43
linuxmceIt is saying that it is a virtual partion01:44
linuxmceah - nevermind -01:44
linuxmcegotta commit first :)01:44
godzeroIt's inside of a primary partion (I think). Id go ahead and erase the thing, and start again. I should only take a minute.01:45
godzerocommit.. yes01:45
jhutchinsWith linux you don't need silly extended partitions.01:46
godzeroSo..... Does anyone know how to kill dolphin?01:46
linuxmceThanks guys - I appreciated - just added another 900GB to my box.01:46

maybeway36I would go "killall dolphin" in the Alt+F2 window01:46
linuxmceWhat is that?01:47
godzeroI had that comming.01:47
godzeroDolphin is the new file manager. I hate it. I want konqueror back as my primary file manager.01:47
maybeway36Alt+F2 and type "kcmshell filetypes"01:48

godzerokubuntu AMD6401:50

Max-PHi, how can I install RandR 1.2 (1.1 installed, using feisty)01:51
maybeway36Slynderdale: do inode>directory and inode>system_directory01:51
maybeway36no not you01:51
maybeway36i mean godzero01:51
maybeway36gah im so confused01:51
godzerofound it. Thanks. I looked and looked....01:52

hydrogenI'm fairly happy with it though03:39
hydrogendolphin4 is a whole lot nicer but thats a different story :)03:39
intelikeywhat is dolphin again ?03:39
ubotuDolphin, or more properly D3lphin, is the new default file manager for Kubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. If you would like to make Konqueror your default file manager again, go to Konqueror - Settings menu - Configure Konqueror - File Associations and change the association for inode/directory and inode/system_directory to Konqueror at the top rather than Dolphin.03:39
killermachno just you anyone wanting to know, that the upgrade is worthwhile and smooth03:40
ardchoillekillermach: That's good to hear03:43
capricorihey all. could anyone guess as to why kubuntu keeps logging me out randomly? it's starting to get annoying...03:45
jhutchinsI here d3lphin has been essentiallyh abandoned in place and will not be developed further.  At best, it's good ideas may be merged into konqueror.03:46
jhutchins(where'd that stray h come from?)03:47
cheguevarajhutchins, konqueror uses dolphin for file management in kde 4 so...03:48
* intelikey hunts up the h remover for jhutchins 03:49
jhutchinscheguevara: Yeah, from what I've heard it sounds like they reached a revision stange and realized that to get to the next step towards release just wasn't worth it.03:49
cheguevarano point of developing kde3 software anymore anyway :P03:49
jhutchinsCould be apocryphal, I don't know, but I heard that it was dead stop on developing it.03:50
jhutchinscheguevara: Yeah, but d3lphin isn't kde3.03:50
cheguevarait is03:50
cheguevarad3lpin is kde303:50
cheguevaradolphin is kde403:50
jhutchinsAh, well it was dolphin I heard it about, not "as corrected by ubotu".03:50
jhutchinsBut, on the same hand, it could be that it's true of d3lphin and not dolphin, somebody got the rumor wrong.03:51

sylvisjFollowed the instructions as per http://www.kubuntu.org/doc/7.10/hardware/C/video.html#nvidia, but /var/log/Xorg.0.log says that the nvidia driver can't find the kernel module03:55
sylvisjor rather, "failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!"03:56
jhutchinssylvisj: There's an #nvidia channel.03:56
sylvisjOk, will try over there.03:57
sylvisj"Ubuntu kernel module problem? Ask in #ubuntu"03:57
jhutchinsTravis: This is why LVM is evil.  You need the set, not just a member.03:58
intelikeysylvisj wrong version or not compatable with the hardware.03:59
sylvisjIt's compatible; GeForce 8800GTS, current stable driver release03:59
sylvisjHm, manually unloading and reloading the nvidia kernel module fixed it, odd04:00
intelikeycan't insert a kernel module that doesn't match the running kernel version, or that the hardware doesn't match     (last half is more dependant on the exact module)04:00
Travisjhutchins well i think the other drive failed or something (I don't have it)04:00
sylvisjWell, the thing is - the module was loaded04:01
Travismy task was getting the data off the one drive i do have recovered04:01
sylvisjunloading and reloading it seems to have solved this issue, which makes me wonder why04:01

raymanand to think i've been on freenode for awhile04:53
raymananyone around to help answer a (hopefully easy) question?04:55
stdinask it and see04:56
raymanSo, I've been running kubuntu since 6.10 (nothing to  brag about, I know) on a thinkpad T42 (1.7 Pentium M, Radeon Mobility 9600..etc.). It was running fine and I even got beryl to work, although not in hardware..anyway...04:57
SlynderdaleIn gutsy gibbon, is there a way to keep the Ubuntu and Kubuntu applications seperate based on the current session your using?04:57
raymanwhen I upgraded from 7.04 to 7.10 using the website instructions it seems to be running in "software" mode now even with the fglrx driver04:58
edellinghamHey guys...long time Ubuntu user, first time Kubuntu user.  I'm quite familiar with KDE, I've ran KDE off and on since way before anyone thought of Ubuntu...I must say, you guys make straight Ubuntu look bad.  I swear, although I've ran Ubuntu with KDE...this seems more responsive, better apps included, system is literally easier to use by the way settings is placed...04:58
edellinghamVery, very impressed...04:58
raymanpictures are scrambled and it runs insanely slow04:58
edellinghamKubuntu should be the official release04:58

sleeperi cant upgrade from to gutsy04:59
raymanthrough apt?04:59
Daemon--is it possible to make the system request confirmation before deleting directories?04:59
sleeperi cant upgrade from feisty to gutsy05:00
ardchoilleDaemon--: rm -i file05:01
sleeperwhen i look at the apt.log at the end i have this05:02
sleeperPackage libc6-i686 has broken dep on libc605:02
sleeper  Considering libc6 11936 as a solution to libc6-i686 705:02
sleeper  Holding Back libc6-i686 rather than change libc605:02
Daemon--i mean if i do "rm file" it automatically asks for confirmation before deleiting the file incase you dont mean to. But when I do "rm -rf directory" it doesnt request confirmation but i would like it to05:02
mox69__daemon: remove the -f ....05:03
Daemon--right, the f means no confirmation then05:03
ardchoilleI've never seen rm -r ask before removing05:04
mox69__it doesnt?05:04
ardchoilleNot here05:04
mox69__then do rm -ri directory05:04
sparrsome systems, particularly multi-user servers, force -i on rm05:05
ardchoilleAh, ok05:05
twylightis there a keystroke logger for kubuntu?05:06

raymanstdin: holy crap, i love you..well no, not quite that much but THANKS...oh so much, i can now enjoy kubuntu again05:15
edellinghamGot a question, I've just installed Kubuntu on my system.  I went through the updates that you'd expect from installing a new distro, and then it suggested I upgrade to Gutsy 7.10...which I'm confident I'm already running. .  I told it to go ahead and it started the process and now it's at the installing point...and sitting at 0%.05:20
edellinghamIs this normal?05:21
mactallahey all.  I made the mistake of updating.  Now I'm stuck with flash 115.  Does anyone know where I can get a .deb of the previous version (.85?)05:21

ubotutehm0nk: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for all information.05:39
stdinmactalla: just removing the repository won't do anything, but after you do that just do "sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree="05:39
stdinmactalla: I think I saw a bug somewhere about it, seems nspluginviewer doesn't like the new flash05:40
mactallastdin: yeah, looking around it seems Adobe broke compatibility with Konq + Opera -- only testing with Firefox.05:42

stdinmactalla: thinking about it, it won't matter what package you install. all it does is download the plugin from adobe and that's always the latest05:45
mactallastdin: yeah, I see that in the url it downloaded.  So now I just need to get my paws on a good version and make sure apt-get sees that to not try downloading it.05:46

sigma_how do i get my windows pc to see my kubuntu pc on a network? i have enabled file-sharing and samba - i can see the windows pc from the kubuntu pc but not vice versa, however the kubuntu pc can ping the windows pc successfully07:37
Slynderdalefirecrotch: CAn't set one, when I do, it won't let me connect to the network or internet. My current network IP is and I tried to set it to the static ip of, with the same info I used in feisty fawn and it doesn't work.07:37

jca-DKHi can anyone please help getting my ati radeon x1950 pro card working with compoiz fusion. i got my ati card set up with the ENVY tool, but when i run compiz --replace i get a xgl not present. and if i do xgl info i get "OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org. please help :)"07:42
Daisuke-Idomarx2k: oh, where do i start?  no automatic downloading to a directory based on subject, for one.07:42
Daisuke-Idojca-DK: well, you shouldn't have used envy.07:43
Daisuke-Idocheck #compiz-fusion07:43
sigma_Daisuke-Ido: tried that, the windows pc says windows can't find it07:43
marx2kDaisuke: how about no ability to set an expiry date greater than 99 days07:43
Slynderdalemox69__: Everything I tried failed to work :/ http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/48296/07:43
marx2kmy binary server has 150 day retention... guess I lose 51 days :)07:43
Daisuke-Idomarx2k: ah, i'm using an isp newsserver, so that's never come up :D07:44
Daisuke-Idogreat completion, terrible retention07:44
sigma_Daisuke-Ido: the kubuntu pc is also an apache web server - the windows pc sees files on the webserver perfectly07:44
Daisuke-Idosigma_: how are files on the kubuntu pc shared?  samba?  nfs?07:44
marx2kDaisuke: hah I guess as long as youre constantly scanning and decoding, that shouldnt be an issue for you :) I pay $20/month for unlimited download/unlimited speed07:45
Daisuke-Idothat sounds like...  giga?07:45
jca-DKDaisuke-Ido: Why not? i tried to use the restrizted drivers in kubunto but linuz freezes when i load x and i have to cut power to computer.07:46
marx2kDaisuke: it's a giga competitor :)07:46
ubotuenvy is not needed or supported. Use the Resticted Manager to install binary drivers and see « /msg ubotu binarydriver »07:46
marx2kbut really, it's all the same...the only difference is retention rates07:46
ubotuTo install the Ati/NVidia drivers for your video card, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto07:46
sigma_Daisuke-Ido: samba and nfs07:46

marx2kI have a 10MBit download connection, and if Im not saturating it 24/7 with  these newsgroups, I feel like Im wasting my money :)07:47
jca-DKThanks i will check :)07:47
sigma_marx2k: i wish i had that kinda speed07:48
marx2ksigma: its expensive and only useful if you have access to servers that can keep up that speed with content07:49
marx2kit's 10 down, 1 up07:49
marx2kand its cable, and they block service ports so I cant set up web servers or ftp servers07:50
sigma_marx2k: isnt it useful for downloading large files?07:50
marx2ksigma: indeed it is. my movie collection has grown exponentially :)07:50

SlynderdaleCan anyone here help me with a network problem in Gutsy Gibbon? For some reason, it won't let me set a Static IP in Gutsy Gibbon while it did in Feisty Fawn using the same information. I ended up doing a clean install of Gutsy Gibbon today to replace Feisty Fawn and ran into this problem. My DHCP IP currently is yet when I try to set the static IP to which I used in Feisty and WIndows, it fails to connect.07:52
sigma_marx2k: how did u do it?07:54
Linux_GaloreSlynderdale: when you have a static ip you dont actually connect07:55
marx2ksigma: I basically removed almost every option from my smb.conf and took it down to workgroup and  netbios name for global section and path for share section07:55
Linux_GaloreSlynderdale: if you not getting out it usually means you havent set the gateway and the dns properly07:56
marx2ksigma: I was having some serious samba issues before that07:56
Linux_GaloreSlynderdale: either that or you havent setup your router properly07:57
sigma_marx2k: are you connected to your internet router via a lan cable?07:57
marx2kbut also have wireless laptops on the lan07:57
SlynderdaleLinux_Galore: They are properly set, thats what confuses me. Heres my before and after interfaces file, my connection info and so on http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/48296/07:58
Linux_Galoremarx2k: I usually use swat the setup the base conf07:58
marx2kLinux: I was using an awesome program called gsambad07:58

ubotugsambad: GTK+ configuration tool for samba. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.1.6-2ubuntu2 (gutsy), package size 95 kB, installed size 360 kB07:58
sigma_marx2k: when you connect the lan cable to your pc does the internet just work automatically or do you have to set it up?07:58
Linux_GaloreSlynderdale: can you ssh into another machine ?07:59
marx2kmarx2k: it works automatically... I mean might have to restart networking in /etc/init.d but generally its automatically07:59
SlynderdaleLinux_Galore: No, it doesn't even register my gateway/router. http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/48299/07:59
SlynderdaleYou can see before then after when I set the static IP and then when I removed it08:00
Linux_GaloreSlynderdale: what does ifconfig show08:00
sigma_marx2k: ah ok i see, always wondered if it did, and how exactly would you share the internet connection on one pc over a linux network? lets assume its not a lan router but rather a usb modem that im using08:00
SlynderdaleLinux_Galore: Nothing after its set and before I have in the pastebin. THough if you want, I can get you the actual results though iI will have to reconnect to IRC.08:01
marx2ksigma: Unless youre hooking all your PC's into a centralized router and that router hooks into your gateway, I dont know how to work it08:02
SlynderdaleLinux_Galore: Its weird, I used exactly the same settings I used in Feisty Fawn as I did in Gutsy Gibbon yet it worked in FEisty but not in GUtsy and there hasn't been any hardware or network changes since then.08:03
sigma_marx2k: ok. i just dont understand why it doesn't work if i put default gateway as the pc with the internet connection08:03
marx2ksigma: yeah Im totally clueless about connection sharing08:04
sigma_marx2k: ok ive edited my samba settings in kcontrol, must i restart my pc for it to take effect or is there a command i can run to restart samba?08:05
marx2ksigma: sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart08:05

avainOkay, well recently ive installed kubuntu, problem is, i took too much space from my win xp partition, and i need to get it back, im willing to nuke and pave kubuntu if needed, but i need to get my xp part back up, i used xp for my work, and i need the space for when clients need big projects done10:50
jpatrickSatManUK: like in /etc/init.d/ see if there's a postgresql script: if so 'sudo /etc/init.d/postresql start'10:50
SatManUKi guess theres not10:51
SatManUKit says command not found10:51

avainSo, does anybody know? ._. im freaking out, i just had a client talk to me today about a project, and $$$ is important10:53
SatManUKi found it10:53
Lynoureavain: you can use qparted for resizing the partitions back the way you want them, I think,  unfortunately you cannot resize mounted partitions and thus need to use a bootable cd for it10:53
SatManUKit says its running10:53
SatManUKbut i don't have ownership permisions inorder to restart it10:53
avain<3 Lynoure10:53
avainSo, that would allow me to nuke the linix part, then reformat it back to NFTS and merge it with my current win xp part?10:54
SatManUKaha starting PostgreSQL 8.2 database server :)10:54
Lynoureavain: you would not even have to 'nuke' Linux, you can just reduce it's size, if you want.10:54
avainDo you know where i can get the files nessery to get a qparted boot cd going?10:54

Lynourevzduch: if it cannot, she can take space from linux and turn it into FAT32 and use that for the project files...10:57
ardchoilleavain: SystemRescueCD has qtparted and a ton of other useful admin tools on it and it's only about 200Mb10:57

sangeliWhat do I have to do to understan the error and fix it?12:25
bsanderonly problem is that it needs to backup to a partition that can handle hard links (like ext3)12:25

bsanderthe feisty fawn .deb works in gutsy too12:36

bsandergabriel_: then 1.4 should do it too: http://www.skype.com/download/skype/linux/12:38
bsanderalso a feisty fawn .deb12:38
gabriel_yeah but i have only installed via repository install so far... kinda new to linux12:39

bsanderLynoure: np :)12:39
gabriel_bsander: can i easily install one of those rpms? will they work for unbuntu?12:39
gabriel_maybe ubuntu is compatible with mandrake rpms?12:40
bsandergabriel_: there are .debs on those pages, specifically built for ubuntu. Try those.12:40

fay_elfok got it anyway libk3b2-mp313:37
sigma__bsander: i have renamed the xorg file to xorg-conf-tv , whats the next step?13:38
bsanderrun the script with a path to a movie. Note that your normal monitor will go blank as it switches xsessions, so it's not possible to keep on browsing while watching the video13:39
bsanderwhen the movie finishes or you press escape, you'll get back to the normal session again13:39
sigma__bsander: where do i put the path to the movie?13:40
bsanderi set it up like that cause i already have a dual head session and most GPU's don't seem to be able to output to 3 different screens..13:40
bsanderjust run tv-script.sh /home/me/movie.avi13:40
bsanderor however you named the script ;)13:41
sigma__bsander: oh ok, are you sure the xorg file should be named xorg-conf-tv and not xorg.conf.tv?13:42
bsanderyou can change it, but then also change it in the last line of the script :)13:42
sigma__guess i should give it a try13:43
sigma__bsander: it keeps saying "command not found"?13:44
bsanderwhich command?13:45
sigma__bsander: heres the command "tv-script.sh /home/sigma/sdb1/Media-Server/Thirteen"13:45

sigma__hang on im gona restart x13:54
drbobb_it's either all crypto off, or the exact settings that used to work in the past13:55
drbobb_(but don;t seem to work anymore)13:55
nosrednaekimdrbobb_: did you try a purge of knetworkmanager and a reinstall?13:55
drbobb_nosrednaekim: no, but do you suggest that is what one should do every time one changes some settings on one's accesspoint?13:56
sigma__ok im back now13:56
nosrednaekimdrbobb_: certainly not, but Knetworkmanager is also a piece of pure bugginess.13:57
ibilicin Disks and Filesystems, what does the "Enable" checkbox do?13:57
drbobb_anyway i'm sure it keeps the ap settings somewhere in my home dir13:57

kaminixDo I need it to use ctrl+c?14:00
sigma__bsander: i got a picture:) but on my monitor because its not hooked 2da tv, il have to carry the pc over there, is it normal for the command to revert back to my monitor if no tv is attached?14:01
bsanderi don't know really14:01
sigma__kaminix: its good for storing stuff u copied14:01
bsanderyou just got it on your regular monitor?14:01
sigma__bsander: yup14:01
sigma__bsander: lemme just try it on the tv, will u still b around?14:02
bsanderyeah i'll be here for about 20 more minutes14:02
kaminixsigma__: What if I only need the thing I copied last? If I don't really need anything except ctrl+c/v and ctrl+middleclick?14:02
bsanderis that enough?14:02
bsanderkaminix: X sometimes acts really strange with c/p14:03
sigma__bsander: should be, one quik thing - will this also work on a ati laptop chipset?14:03
bsanderfor instance when you copy something and then quit the app, your clipboard will be empty without kl;ipper14:03
bsanderI couldn't say really, don't count on it since I generated the xorgconf with nvidia-settings14:03
bsanderbut it might work, i truly don't know :)14:04

bsanderfor s multi-user setup?15:41
BluesKajdunno bsander , I didn't ask :)15:41
bsanderok :)15:41
user_blueskaj bsander: in any event, that advice is good.  I didn't need the bluetooth loading up every time i booted.  Thanks guys15:42
BluesKajI just put the questiona nd it's answer into my text file15:42
user_can i remove CUPS if i don't use a printer?15:43
BluesKajwhy bother15:43
user_blueskaj: because its another module (not sure if thats the proper terminology) that i can see gets loaded on each boot.  I don't need it, do I?15:44
bsanderuser_: some programs depend on cups, even if you don't want to print with them15:44
user_im on an older laptop, and want the slimmest system possible to optimize performance15:44
BluesKajuser_, if you wish, it doesn't delete the app tho , the daemon wont run is all15:44
onishidatofsckr: how can i use it now?15:45
user_bsander: thanks for the info... i won't eff with it then :)15:45
finekwhat i must do to watch videos on youtube, i have konqueror15:45
user_finek: install flash15:45
bsanderuser_: you can try disabling it in systemsettings, then if something messes up you can turn it on again15:45
bsanderif you really really want it gone from startup15:45
BluesKajuser_, you can check in system settings/advanced /system services15:45
bsandersystemsettings -> advanced -> system services15:46
bsanderyeah what he said :)15:46
user_bsander: I don't think i want to mess with it.... I'm on my third install of 7,10, and i promised myself this with be the last one until Hardy comes out >:)15:46
user_i just love how customizable ubuntu is - i've only been using it for a few months (windows refugee)15:47
user_plus, the real-time help from you guys is great, too.15:47
bsanderyeah, don't worry, most of us had some borked installs in the past :)15:47
bsanderI remember them all too well15:48
LamerManhi guys, i'm looking for the source code of pthread, some standard library functions... are they available in some deb packages? I'm new to linux and just don't know where to look for it.15:48
BluesKajfor example , wife likes british series like Duchess of Duke Street and it's apretty large torrent file , so I set up ktorrent to start up in the autostart file , without having to click on it every morning15:48
bsanderbut the good thing is that they really teach you an understanding of the system15:48
user_it was a whole new world for me - i tweaked *everything* - usually stuff worked as i wanted (i was following tutorials), but i definitely borked some settings beyond my repairing ability :)15:48
bsanderand after a while you can even fix your system instead of having to reinstall it ;)15:49
crush_groove I installed gnome dt beside my kde yesterday and I want to remove it. what is line? I tried "sudo apt-get remove --purge gnome" didnt work15:49
user_bsander: i've been getting better- i have learned this "ALWAYS make backups of any important file you are going to alter" .  That always helps15:49
bsanderyup, that's definitely the smart thing to do :)15:50
cosenalis it normal that since the upgrade to 7.10 (one month ago or more) kubuntu never asked me about updates?15:50
BluesKajyup user_ , bsander done that too , this around my 12th or so linux distro and my 5th kubuntu :)15:50
user_haha :)15:50
bsandercosenal: do you have adept_notifier running?15:51
user_ok thanks again guys, i'm going to eat some breakfast15:51
bsanderok bye15:51
BluesKajcrush_groove, sudo apt-get remove gnome-desktop15:51
cosenalbsander: yes15:51
BluesKajcrush_groove,, it'll remove all the gnome apps15:52
crush_grooveReply: couldnt find package gnome-desktop15:52
cosenaleven if I fetch the updates on Adept Manager it just allows me to Full Upgrade the system, but it doesn't make sense because it's already upgraded15:52
dreamcoderkubuntu 64bit or 32bit?15:53
bsandercosenal: upgrading means that there are newer versions of some packages, not an upgrade from feisty to gutsy or something15:53
bsanderAdepts status bar should tell you if there are new/upgradable packages15:53
bsander"full upgrade" will install the upgradable packages15:54
cosenalbsander: no, sorry...I mean "Version Upgrade" is the only possibility15:54
bsanderyou're on gutsy?15:54
bsanderand you upgraded from 7.04?15:55
bsanderthat all went well? nor errors or something?15:55
cosenaland after I upgraded (reinstalled) using the cd15:55
BluesKajcosenal, that's a known bug , but I don't remember the fix15:56
cosenalBluesKaj: where can I find the fix?15:56
BluesKajcosenal, one thing you could do is defeat the adept notifier and just wait til somebody more knowledgeable can tell you15:57
BluesKajbut I'd search on google linux or launchpad15:58
BluesKajin the meantime use apt to or synaptic to install apps15:58
cosenalfor the first month of usage I supposed that no updates were avaiable15:59
cosenalbut this begins to sound weird...15:59

nosrednaekimpenguin42: its not an xephyr problem, its a startkde problem, or maybe even a packaging bug.... in any case it crashes X as well if you run it standalone19:43
jordan__nosrednaekim: thx19:44
jordan__nosrednaekim: You using gutsy?19:45
nosrednaekimjordan__: yes19:45
jordan__nosrednaekim: have you found the carousel GL screensaver that use to come with the previous release?19:45
penguin42nosrednaekim: Ah nasty; if X is crashing then it's most likely an X server problem - apps shouldn't be able to segfault the X server19:45
nosrednaekimpenguin42: the problem is that kde can't find that file and crashes19:46
penguin42hmm annoying - it managed to do stuff to the main display as well19:46
nosrednaekimjordan__: I don't use GL screensavers19:46
penguin42nosrednaekim: No, the X server is segfaulting - that's not KDEs fault (even if KDE is dying)19:46
jordan__nosrednaekim: ok.. thanks19:46
penguin42however that fix does stop whatever it did to the X server that upset it19:47

tehm0nki clicked on it and it says something about the Grub install21:20
tehm0nkit says (hd0)21:20
nosrednaekimtehm0nk: leave that as default21:20
tehm0nkand it dont work21:20
ardchoillenosrednaekim: Shouldn't that be (hd0,1) ?21:20
tehm0nkthe first partition21:20
nosrednaekimardchoille: he's installing it on a partition?21:21
tehm0nkor should it be (hd0,0)21:21
J-RHello everybody!21:21
J-RI changed my monitor from a LCD 17 inch to a CRT 14 inch.21:21
nosrednaekimfirst partition would be hd0,021:21
J-RI run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg.21:21
J-RThe login screen of KDE is OK. The initialization screen of KDE is also OK.21:21
J-RBut, after that there is only a blank screen and I cannot do anythin more.21:21
ardchoilleAh, right21:21
J-RIs there some configuration file of KDE that I have do delete or chage?21:21
Dr_willisthe users can have their own resolution settings i recall.  But i dont rember where thats saved at.21:21
ibilicnosrednaekim: well it's just that firefox and LinuxDC++ and Azureus and everything in general just seems to be responding slowly and buggy... Firefox closed a couple of times for no reason21:21
tehm0nkbrb while it copies stuff21:22
nosrednaekimibilic: logging out should do the trick21:22
Dr_willisJ-R,  you could move the .kde dir and see if it works.   Then explore  the .kde dir looking for the setting file. :)21:22
ibilicnosrednaekim: will try, thanks!21:22
nosrednaekimhave to go everyone! good luck everyone.21:23
J-RDR_willis, Thank you. Do you know the setting file's name?21:25
J-RNow I'm in Windows. So I need to grabber all the information before to turn to Kubuntu. Sorry21:25
Dr_willisJ-R,  Nope.  You could alwyas use a console based irc client to get here from linux, also you could try making a new user. and seeing if it works for them21:26
J-RDr_willis. Thank you again. I'll try this.21:27

rencore_ok u should have that updated on the kubuntu site because under RC2 it has the one i added22:02
hitmanWillyok, never mind, I was looking at the RC1 page...my bad :)22:03
ubotuIf you're having trouble installing KDE4, in a !Terminal run: « sudo apt-get --purge remove $(dpkg -l | grep "4:3.97.0" |awk '{print $2}') » then run « sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade » - After that install KDE4 as normal22:04
hitmanWillysee, now the professionals come in :)22:04
habdelLjL: thanks, it is working now . It was a conflict between RC1 and RC2 packages22:05
hitmanWillyso RC2 is the latest then?  heh, have to go update my buntu box then :)22:06
rencore_LjL, i did that but it is still trying to intall the broken dependencies which arent working22:07
rencore_how do i clear that out22:07
LjLrencore_: what happens if you type that (don't press Y, just pastebin what it says after the command)22:08
rencore_any ideas?22:15
LjLrencore_: it helps if you highlight me, i'm in other channels too... anyway tried sudo apt-get remove kde4admin kde4artwork kde4base kdebase-bin kdepimlibs5?22:16
rencore_same thing22:17
LjLrencore_: sudo apt-get install kdelibs5?22:17

LjL(careful, *look* at what packages it's going to remove, first)22:27
rencore_LjL, it doesnt even attempt to remove then22:28
LjLrencore_: says what?22:28
hitmanWillyok, dumb question here, are you trying to do this with kde4 running?22:28
hitmanWillyok, just making sure :)22:29
rencore_unless kde4 is running on kde322:29
hitmanWillyalso, it might be an amd 64 issue22:30
rencore_could be22:30

ArtimusHow can I make my clock kicker app transparent again?  It's on "Pain clock".  I accidentally set a background color, now I can't make it transparent (so my kicker wallpaper shows behind it).22:41

Manadhow can I make Konqueror auto-load the File Management view profile when I launch it?22:51
rencore_LjL, so i got everything to install ok but when i select kde4 in the sessions it doesnt load22:53

rencore_LjL, ok the session lasts less than 10 seconds22:56

fignewKonqueror is a great web browser22:59
fignewFaster than firefox, but not as compatible22:59
fignewso you'll maybe come across a few websites that don't fully render correctly :)23:00
Manadcan't be faster than Firefox, they use the same engine.23:00
Dr_willishow do you even benchmark 'faster'23:00
Dr_willismake a 10000mb html doc?23:00
fignewManad: they do not use the same engine23:00
fignewDr_willis: there's various benchmarks23:01
Manadthey don't? My bad, I saw the "browser signature" option and it said "Mozilla"23:01
Dr_willisit spits out the same 'id' :)23:01
=== derek is now known as deermeat
fignewManad: It does that because some websites are configured to tell you do get "a compatible browser" if it detects a non standard user agent23:02
fignewthat's why opera claims it's some other browser by default.23:02
Manadso anyone know how I can have it autoload the File Management profile when it opens? I RTFMed and googled, it's not even brought up. Well the manual mentions instructions on creating a new shortcut that launches the profile, but it must be out of date because the things they talk about don't exist on the Kubuntu shortcut creator.23:02
fignewkfmclient openProfile webbrowsing23:04
Dr_willishmm.. its a command line option to konqueror i belive to tellit to use a specific profile23:04
fignewyes, what Dr_willis said23:05
Dr_williskonqueror --help mentions it..23:05
Dr_williskonqueror  --profile <profile>       Profile to open23:05
Dr_willishmm   --preload                 Preload for later use23:05
Dr_willisnever noticed that one befor. :)23:05
fignewDr_willis: preloading should be automatic (at least, there's a setting for in)23:07
Dr_willisyea. unless you are using a setup like i got on my laptop. with the jwm window manager. :)23:08
Manadgot it now. I think the space in "File Management" was causing me issues. I saved it as "best" and now it loads, thanks.23:08
Dr_willisbut proberly wont gain too much  for me.23:08

Ace2016anyone here know why my gksudo apps look horrible?23:21
Ace2016like when i'm in kde and i run kdesu synaptic or gksudo gnome it looks really horrible, but if i login as root (gui) then the gtk apps have the correct theme23:22
Manadcan I get people's opinion on Strigi? I'm the sort of person who always disabled Windows Indexing Service. How is Strigi better?23:23
Dr_willisManad,  I hate it :)23:26
Dr_willisfor some weird reason if i type in a bad url in konquerors address it goes to strigi://Somting23:26
Dr_willisand then i cant chagne the address/location i start to type in google.com or whatever and it resets back to strigi://23:27
Ace2016well i'm not sure about stringi but i use locate and i only update it when i need to use it, i just do sudo updatedb and search, so it doesn't slow stuff down when i'm not suing it, but i plan to set it to run at 3am since i've most likely left the pc on and gone to sleep23:27
Dr_willisi have to close konquer23:27
Manadwhat is locate, ace? another search service?23:32
rencore_LjL, i have everything installed why does kde4 not boot when i select the session in gdm23:34
LjLrencore_, i don't know.23:35
Ace2016Manad: it just finds filenames, like locate ace will find say /home/ace/* and give a list of all files with ace in the location name, its great when i'm looking for config files i mess with because i always make a backup and call it filename_Ace2016_Backup_YYYYMMDD23:36
Dr_willisyou did alter the .desktop entry for gdm like the docs say?23:36

rencore_kde3 runs fine but for some reason kde4 doesnt load23:38
Dr_willistry starting it from 'startx' and the .xinitrc file instead of using gdm perhaps.23:40
