AMcBainAgent_bob: (tab reorder) Awww. I had an interesting program on Windows called Taskix that allowed you to do that by injecting code into explorer.exe ... I'm not saying Linux should emulate that part, but it would be a really nice add on ... maybe look at what it does (not code wise) to get ideas?00:01

jeremeI'm running an ati radeon 9600 card in dual-head mode with the fglrx driver packaged with gutsy.  Everything seems to be good... driver is installed right, framerates are high... however, glxgears is blank, and when I run a GL screensaver, the last 400 or so pixels of my 2nd monitor show the desktop through the screensaver, and small gl preview windows are blank00:21
Phoenix92xjereme: had the same poroblem a few days ago, rebooting fixed it for me00:22
jeremePhoenix92x: I'll give it a shot00:22
jeremeback when I worked dial-up tech support in '97. "reboot and try again" was what we'd tell people at the end of our shift00:23
jereme1, because that fixes 99% of windows errors00:23

Daisuke_too...his loss00:31
ahmossorry but can I ask how to do this. install /msg ubotu java first, then download Limewire from http://www.limewire.com/LimeWireSoftOther and finally run runLime.sh. Consider /msg ubotu FrostWire as an alternative.00:31
ahmosI've downloaded limewire00:32
Dr_willisGiven the level of experoence with some  of the people asking questions in here.. its MUCH more economical to ask them to just reboot. :)00:32
Dr_willisplus it gives me time to change my Nick ifi dont want to talk to them again. :P00:32
SlimeyPeteahmos: type /msg ubotu java into your IRC client00:33
SlimeyPeteubotu will tell you how to install java00:33
SlimeyPete(ubotu is a computer program which responds to messages)00:33

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/CompizFusion - further help in #compiz-fusion00:42
AMcBainI tried to use that ... my PC wasn't happy.00:43
SlimeyPetedoesn't work for everybody00:43
SlimeyPetedidn't work terribly well for me on this system00:44
AMcBainIt gave all my menus white borders, and some windows got covered by a solid color and became uninteractable etc. I had to restart the default KDE one.00:44
Dr_willisI play with the compiz toys for a while.. then turn them off for a while.. then go back to playing with them..00:45
AMcBainI'd like to play with them if they didn't screw things up beyond usability.00:46
fprintfI tried KDE4 and my system puked. It worked with compiz-fusion much better.00:50
Dr_williskde4 is very much a work in progress. :)00:50
Dr_willisBut give it a year.. and see what happens.00:51
AMcBainI want to see Plasma, as I really want a fighting chance for Linux to support Konfabulator, which I dearly miss.00:52
fprintfI agree. It sure looks nice though before the system puked. I am reinstalling KDE right now (I broke it worse after trying to remove KDE4)00:52
AMcBain(I was/still am an avid developer for Konfabulator, but not if I can't get a good Windows VM going or get a linux equiv that supports it)00:52
* fprintf is reinstalling KDE on my main machine. Typing this on my networked laptop.00:53
Dr_willisI dont rember konfabulator. :)00:54
AMcBainI've noticed that a lot of apps state that KDE is a related package so to uninstall something such as Konqueror (just for example) would uninstall KDE ... a bit weird if you ask me. Just cause I installed KDE and it installed Konqueror, that doesn't make Konqueror an integral part of KDE ...00:54
Dr_willispackage management is a very.... interesting  'problem' :)00:55
SlimeyPeteAMcBain: yeah, it's irritating00:55
AMcBainDr_willis: It's called Yahoo! Widget Engine now, but "Yahoo!" (the name) seems to spread bad vibes to people I talk with, even though the community is its own thing. I prefer to call it by the old, cooler name Konfabulator.00:55
AMcBainNever really took any screenshots of my desktop with it running, so the best I can maybe post is shots of my projects for it ...00:56
AMcBain(I have my NTFS mounted until I have my ext HDD, copy stuff over, and can blow this one out and start over)00:56
Tmashey anyone know why my whole computer locks up when i try to connect to a WEP encrypted network?00:56
AMcBainAnd also so I can use Amarok with my music collection (Amarok rules)00:57
endirWhat's the best way to replace KWin with another program? export KDEWM=app doesn't work. And I thought there was a way in ~/.kde/share/config/00:59
AMcBainBasically after I decided to try out Kubuntu (which I think finally killed my XP install) my position went from just waiting until I could go back to Windows to I can reinstall Linux for real and run XP VM style ... :P00:59
AMcBainWhich is very impressive having used only Windows since who knows when, and XP being absolutely fabulous as Windows OSes go, if you know what I mean.01:00
BluesKajAMcBain, did you let the live cd partitioner wipe out windows on your install ?01:00
TmasXP is a great OS now. It wasnt at release01:00
AMcBainXP is great. Very stable.01:01
jeremeokay, so now my fglrx can show glxgears and whatnot, but my xscreensavers still aren't full screen... I've now done the binary driver install using ati's package generator01:01
AMcBainThat's my point. It was better than '98 the previous stable one.01:01
=== The_White_Rook is now known as TheWhiteRook
jereme'98 was more stable than 2k?01:02
jeremecertainly not in my experience01:02
BluesKajjereme, does it do fgl_glxgears ?01:02
AMcBainNo, I said XP was more stable than '98./01:02
jereme95 was a hooker and 98 was a hooker with make-up01:02
AMcBainBluesKaj: No, I created a new, very small partition to try out Linux on (rather than do LiveCD each time) and Windows lasted for a day (on its own partition) then commited suicide.01:02

Dr_willisand EGADS they can make some big loud wrecks.01:12
AMcBainThe more simpler simpler CNCs just cut material away from blocks. So technically you could scuplt plastic and the like.01:12

Dr_willissun turned java into such a disaster...... :(01:37
AMcBainWhat! Java is great!01:38
AMcBainI don't think that all apps made *with* Java are great, but that is no reason to bash the language ...01:39
Dr_willisThe WAY sun has handled java - is the issue01:39
ahmosi got this,01:39
ahmosMaybe you're using the wrong version of Java?01:39
ahmos(LimeWire is tested against and works best with with Sun's JRE, Java 1.5+)01:39
ahmosThe version of Java in your PATH is:01:39

Dr_willisheh so am i it seems. :)01:40
Dr_willisI installed it - to get Miro working yesterday01:40
AMcBain1.7.0? That isn't officially out yet ...01:40
ubotuTo install a Java compiler/interpreter on Ubuntu, look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java - For the Sun Java runtime install sun-java5-jre from the !Multiverse repository. Enable the backports repository on Edgy to install sun-java6-jre. Please don't use Adept to install Java if you are on Kubuntu 6.10 (Edgy) or earlier.01:41
ahmosi don't know01:41
AMcBain1.6.0 is the latest Java.01:41
Dr_willisI just followed a 'get miro working' guide yesterday.01:41
Dr_willisnot sure what icedtea actually is heh.01:41
Dr_willisIcedTea is available on Ubuntu 7.10 in the Universe repository. The runtime environment is located in the icedtea-java7-jre package.01:41
AMcBainIt is supposed to be a completely open source implementation of the Java JVM.01:41
ahmosme too :o01:41
Dr_willisthats from the !java wiki page01:41
AMcBainJava is 99.99999% open source now. I think there is only a few kilibytes of utility left that isn't oss..01:42
AMcBain(they may have already taken care of that bit by now though)01:42
Dr_willisYou could set it to the other java.01:43
Dr_willissudo update-alternatives --config java01:43
Dr_willisand see if it works then01:43
AMcBainAnd even if it wasn't oss, I would still prefer the Sun JVM over others any day. I've seen what Apple did (slow to update, and SpringLayout is still broken on Mac)01:43
Dr_willisat one time - i recall that Limewire and so on  Required the actual SUN JVM01:44
AMcBainThat's a bit paranoid and overkill.01:44
Dr_willislets see. Installing frostwire01:44
Dr_willisthey required it - because they would crash otherwise. :) so do what you want..01:45
Dr_willisuse it so they run.. or dont use it.. and they dont run.01:45
ahmosyes it worked after configuring java :)01:45
AMcBainWell, all JVMs are supposed to be the same. Unless you mean it can run without Java now.01:45
Dr_willisseems they still need the official-sun java to work.01:45
Dr_willis'supposed to be' :)01:45
ahmosyes, but thank you all for hlping me...01:46
ahmoshelping me01:46
Dr_willisNow go get the RIAA and MPAA mad at you for using Limewire.01:46
AMcBainWell, we all know the Apple JVM is "different". but the rest are all pretty equal and good.01:46
Dr_willisYou Might want to check out Frostwire instead.01:46
* AMcBain wonders why Linux is incapable of turning of his laptop monitor in favor of the external.01:47
ahmosfrostwire is a program similar to limewire01:47

Dr_willisahmos,  identical - and 100& GPL01:47
ubotufrostwire is a totally open source version of Limewire.  For installation help, please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FrostWire01:47
Dr_willisWhih is why the !limewire factoid suggests01:47
Dr_willisusing it instead.01:47
ubotulimewire is a popular P2P client running on the Gnutella network. To get it running, install /msg ubotu java first, then download Limewire from http://www.limewire.com/LimeWireSoftOther and finally run runLime.sh. Consider /msg ubotu FrostWire as an alternative.01:48
AMcBainIntel integrated graphics and I'm using URandR and it won't let me turn it off, only run it as a clone. I could push the "laptop-screen 'off button'" but that defeats the purpose.01:48

Dr_willisNo more ati  based laptops for me... ever .. no matter how good a sale they are. :)01:51
AMcBainIt's just rather distracting to have a second, smaller, monitor that you can't turn off that clones the ext screen.01:52

sub[t]rnljust have to tell it to01:52
BluesKaj<--got an ATI X200G on my pc ..works well with the restricted driver01:52

Dr_willisATI has made a lot of promises...  that are not worth the paper the email is printed on. :)01:53
BluesKajAMcBain, thew ATI latest linux driver offerings are ok for pci cards ,but suck badly on onboards01:54
AMcBainNot high end cards, apparently they focused on medium range and were actually able to reduce the power, and come up with something really nice. They dropped competing on the highend.01:54
sub[t]rnlAMcBain➜ see if that works for you01:54
Dr_willisand of course with laptops - it can be a real toss up if they will work or not. :)01:54
AMcBainNo more distraction.01:55
Dr_willisati stopped compeating at the high end? Hmm..they just released a new high end thing this week I thought01:55
AMcBainWell, I have no idea anymore. I stopped getting MaxPC so my knowledge is sadly out of date.01:55
AMcBainI don't bother to keep up really, until I need to buy something.01:55

Dr_willisThis new high-end AMD graphics card is the first to break the Teraflop barrier yet costs under $500 USD. However, unlike the Radeon HD 3400/3600 series, the Linux support for the HD 3870 X2 can be questioned.01:59
Dr_willisNo crossfire for Linux yet - it seems. :)01:59
Dr_willisI think i will stick with nvida for the next year or 2.01:59
* Dr_willis wonders how long it will be befor all the compiz eye candy needs a SLI system for the best wiggly windows!02:00
AMcBainick. (not the wiggly windows, just something needing that much "power")02:00
maduserthe kde4 should outdue compiz though02:01
maduseronce it works02:01
maduserwith kubuntu02:01
AMcBainout do*02:01
Dr_willisAnd perhaps once everyone gets sick of the eyecandy.. actual features that improve useablity will get added. :P02:02
AMcBainIf I'm not mistaken, Plasma should do both.02:02
basculescale is a good usability feature, so is the rotation (yo me)02:03
Dr_willisI never use either of those . With my 2 monitors.. they just dont work very well.02:04
basculeto me (bed time)02:04
basculemv bascule /dev/bed02:04
Dr_willissudo shortsheet /bascule/bed02:04
ahmoshey DR_Willis: i've installe frostwire now but it didn't work ( java problem again)02:16
ahmoslimewire working but frostwire no..!!02:17
kibaproblem installing kde402:18
nosrednaekimkiba: yes?02:18
* Winny quietly asks if anyone else is having issues with an 8500GT and Kubuntu 7.1002:19
nosrednaekimWinny: what issues?02:19
nosrednaekimhi Ryu01002:19
Daisuke_tookiba: a problem better suited for #kubuntu-kde4 perhaps?02:19
Ryu010can someone  help me?02:20
Winnynosrednaekim, the desktop acts incredibly weird (things don't render properly), when I try to run the installer, it freezes, etc.02:20
nosrednaekimRyu010: wats the problem?02:20
Dr_willisahmos,  i cant even get it to install.. server seems down.02:20
nosrednaekimWinny: oh.. the liveCD? please go over to #kubuntu-kde4, i'm there too02:20
Ryu010i just installed kubuntu, ir looks as though it is starting fine then it goes to a black screen and nothing happens02:20
Winnynosrednaekim, eh.. 7.10 has KDE 302:20
Daisuke_tooWinny: there's a kde4 livecd02:21
Dr_willisRyu010,  what video card?02:21
ahmosbut i've downloaded it from the site and installed it..02:21
kibapackages won't install02:21
Ryu010im not sure, i am using a hp tx1318ca tablet02:21
Dr_willisRyu010,  if its using an ati, or nvidia card. You need to most likely Install the proper ati or nvidia drivers.02:22
Dr_willisThere is a Laptop forum on th Ubuntu web site. I belive02:22
Daisuke_tookiba: again, #kubuntu-kde402:22
nosrednaekimthat uses an nvidia Ryu01002:22
* Daisuke_too smacks himself in the face repeatedly02:22
Ryu010alright, so what do i do to make it work?02:23
nosrednaekimDaisuke_too: frustrating day?02:23
nosrednaekimRyu010: boot into recovery mode and install the nvidia driver02:23
ubotuTo install the Ati/NVidia drivers for your video card, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto02:23
Daisuke_toonosrednaekim: i can't say what i would like to :)02:23
=== Daisuke_too is now known as Daisuke_Id
=== Daisuke_Id is now known as Daisuke_Ido
Ryu010recovery mode starts at a black screen as well02:24
nosrednaekimDaisuke_too: *^(@$^*&*@&$*& and *&*^*&%@*$ day?02:24
Ryu010oops nvm02:24
Ryu010its in recovery mode02:24
Ryu010will it get an ip for me from my dhcp or do i need to assign?02:25
nosrednaekimRyu010: if you are on wired, run "sudo dhclient eth0"02:25
haploanyone know if the kernel option CONFIG_HZ_1000 is set to yes on the default kubuntu kernel?02:27
Dr_willisHmm there used to be a  kernel config file in /proc/ or similer - i recall.. but not seen that in ages.02:27
nosrednaekimhaplo: in the 64 bit edition, I believe so02:27
haplookay, yeah I am using the 64bit version02:28
Daisuke_Idoit's official, there are no more windows machines in this house :)02:28
Strangeworkdoes DHCP have a seperate installation process/required software between Kubuntu and Fluxbuntu? DHCP works fine in Kubuntu, but it doesn't function in Fluxbuntu (it wasn't installed during installation)02:29
nosrednaekimStrangework: this is not the fluxubuntu help[ channel02:30
Ryu010the site that was given with driver installiation is for gui\02:30
Ryu010i need to know how to do it command line02:30
Daisuke_Idowell if it wasn't installed, i can imagine that it won't work...02:30
Daisuke_IdoRyu010: nvidia?02:31
nosrednaekimRyu010: ah ok... run "sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-new"02:31
Daisuke_Idothat's the line02:31
Daisuke_Idoit's almost tempting to snag the 64mb gf2 out of my geexbox machine and stick it in this one.  this chrome9 chipset's driving me friggin nuts02:33
Ryu010i usually use mandriva powerpack and everythis is already there, i have never had a driver issue02:33
Ryu010so what do i do after i have run  "sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-new"02:33
Daisuke_Idodid it install?02:34
barkinki cant play another sound file while using mplayer02:34
Ryu010i think so02:34
mixedis it possible to install kicker-kickoff in kubuntu?02:34
nosrednaekimRyu010: run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" and leave all settings but the driver name as default..... make that "nvidia"02:34
Daisuke_Idonosrednaekim: or sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg02:34
barkinkand if i am playing sthng else, i get "[AO OSS] audio_setup: Can't open audio device /dev/dsp: Device or resource busy" this error from mplayer while trying to play sthng02:35
Ryu010do i have to enter a identifier for my card?02:35
kadamIs there a note-taking application for Kubuntu, similar to M$' One-Note?02:36
Daisuke_Idoand that's why i recommend -phigh02:36
nosrednaekimDaisuke_Ido: so true...02:36
Daisuke_Idokadam: you want a program similar to microsoft's offering, yet you degrade the concept of MS and anything they might offer by abbreviating it M$.  i have now seen the ultimate hypocrisy.  thanks for playing, don't forget to try our home game!02:37
Daisuke_Idobut other than that...  i'm not sure i've seen anything that would really fit the bill02:37
Ryu010do i have to enter a identifier for my card?02:37
nosrednaekimRyu010: nope02:38
nosrednaekimRyu010: leave everything as default02:38
nosrednaekimexcept the driver02:38

nosrednaekimRyu010: yah... give it a shot02:40
mar0976cp -f .directory music/*/  doesn work02:40
mar0976can you help me?02:41
kadamDaisuke_Ido: Thanks, as far as I know the $ in M$ refers to money, which they have plenty of.  By asking if there is something similar to one of their offerings, I was more insinuating my support for non-$ based developers by seeing whether or not I would be reinventing the wheel should I decide on such an application as being the focus of my own development efforts.  But, thanks for the second answer...02:41
Ryu010how would i get the touch screen to work?]02:41
nosrednaekimRyu010: thats a whole nother can of worms :)02:42
Ryu010want to open it?02:43

fatguyCannot find the 7.04 ISO to download--does anyone know where to find a copy for download?02:47
ubotuQt is the Q toolkit, which forms the base of KDE and is used by many applications to provide a !GUI. Install the libqt3-mt-dev package to compile Qt applications02:50
fatguynobody ever cares about the fatguy's problems..02:51
* kiba feel terrible02:51
kibaI want my kde4 install!02:51
kibaI got this problem02:51
fatguykde4 is awesome...02:51
yotuxkde 4 is something else I will give you that02:52
* AMcBain decides he will wait until it is stable.02:52
yotuxfatguy how are you running it02:52
kibacan anybody please help me?02:53
kibaI tried purging it from my system02:53
kibaand it won't work02:53
Ryu010alright well thanks for you help everyone :P02:53
yotuxkiba: did you install kde4 before you are install it again?02:54
fatguyyotux: I just tested it out on the opensuse livecd.. I'd consider it still beta.. but looks like it'll be really good when all its apps are out..02:54
yotuxI installed it on kubuntu02:55
kibaI think so..I don't know?02:55
yotuxI rember seeing something about the RC release not compatible with the roll out on the 11th02:55
fatguythe most important concept, in my view, is definitely tagging files based on their individual histories then being able to query for the files you want.02:56
yotuxI would use apt-get remove kde4-core followed by a autoclean02:56
yotuxthen try re-installing02:56
kibawon't work02:57
yotuxfatguy: I load into kde4 and every thing seem larger on this display what where your thoughts03:02
yotuxI run 1400x900 res03:02
yotuxicons where huge for me03:02

marcelol_is there a howto somewhere ?04:18
Agent_bob!source | marcelol_04:18
ubotumarcelol_: You can easily fetch a package's source with apt-get. See: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-sourcehandling.en.html04:18
Agent_bobbah they changed that infonode.04:18
Agent_bobmarcelol_ at any rate.   you should check the backports first.  there may be a package for fiesty04:19
marcelol_wish there was a package for Feisty04:19
marcelol_where are the backports ?04:19
ubotuIf new updated Ubuntu packages are built for an application, then they may go into Ubuntu Backports. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports - See also !packaging04:19
ubotuThe packaging guide is at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/NewPackages for information on getting a package integrated into Ubuntu - Other developer resources are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment - See also !backports04:20
Agent_bobthose infonodes shouldn't be linked like that.04:20
Agent_bob90% of people that want to know about backports are not developers trying to get a package into the repos04:21
Agent_bobmaybe 99%04:21

epimethhi guys... I'm having some trouble installing flash04:24

ubotuTo install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash (for !Dapper and !Edgy, a recent version is available in !backports) - See also !Restricted and !Gnash - The Flash package is currently BROKEN, see « /msg ubotu FlashIssues »04:24
ubotuThe Flash plugin installation is currently broken. This is due to Adobe changing the tar file that the package downloads. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=636397 if you need to fix this immediately, but it's recommended to wait for an official fix.04:24
ol_dude67that too04:25
heinkel_111anybody know about problems with the flickuploadr for digikam?04:25

ol_dude67marcelol_, what are you trying to upgrade the distro or kde?04:26
Agent_bobkde was the first target ol_dude6704:27
ol_dude67ok thats what i thought04:27
ol_dude67had me lost there for a second04:27
Agent_bobseems that system to attain, may be on the agenda now04:27
marcelol_Well.....I'd prefer just to upgrade KDE, to be honest with you...unless there's something really compelling in Hardy04:29
marcelol_Feisty's been plenty stable for me....04:29

marcelol_oh ? 4 misbehaving ?04:31
marcelol_ok...maybe I'll let it be then04:32

adrock358I need to make use of your genius here fellas.  my wireless only works with the livecd.  i found out what i have to do to make it work, but, i have to download all possible upgrades to my system first...I've done this already and it works.  So, I'm back at step one again, and I need to download all upgrades.  Except I need to do it manually, via a disk.  I have to do this because I can't plug in to the internet.  All I have is05:07
ol_dude67i have caught myself doing it as well.:(05:07
TheWhiteRookyeah, but so did Agent_bob via that ubotu thing05:07
adrock358Anybody got any suggestions?05:08
Agent_bobadrock358 your post turncated at "All I have is"05:09
TheWhiteRookodd. Adept_update thing tells me I've got no updates to get, but whenI do apt-get upgrade, it tells me I have 28...05:09
adrock358agent_bob.  hmmm.  the last line was all i have is livecd.  thanks.05:09
Agent_bobupdate != upgrade05:09

adrock358thewhiterook.  yeah dog.  definitely two different things.  not sure what the diff is though05:11
* Agent_bob wonders whether to explain that one or not......05:12
adrock358agent_bob.  i'm lost dog.  what will i do with this apt-zip once i download it.  i'll start it right now.05:12
TheWhiteRookI think when you do update, it updates the lists of packages, but when you do upgrade, it installs the.... upgrades.... of packages you already have05:12
Agent_bobTheWhiteRook correct.05:13
TheWhiteRookthough that "I think" is a pretty definite one.05:13
TheWhiteRooklol, yay! do I win?05:13
adrock358thewhierook.  i say you win bro05:13
TheWhiteRookawwwww *goes away to find somewhere where explanations are more appreciated*05:13
adrock358thewhiterook.  no prob.  anything i can do, you-know.05:14
Agent_bobadrock358 what you do with the package is install it and read the man page     what you do in here is stop calling people names.05:14
TheWhiteRook*celebrates* (by the way, replace bro with sis...:P)05:14
adrock358agent_bob who did i call names?05:14

adrock358agenagent_bob how do i get apt-zip?05:19
ubotuYou can browse and search for Ubuntu packages using !Synaptic, !Adept, "apt-cache search <keywords or regex>", the "apt:/" URL in KDE, or online at http://packages.ubuntu.com - Ubuntu has about 20000 packages available, so please *search* for an official package before installing things in awkward ways!05:20
Agent_bobuse the url and dirrect dl ^05:20
adrock358agent_bob thank you05:20
apparleTheWhiteRook: Why are you going to use apt-zip ( I wannna tweak it too)05:20
adrock358agent_bob were you serious about the names?05:21
adrock358apparle  i am05:21
TheWhiteRookapparle: I'm not using apt-zip...05:21
adrock358agent_bob.  I swore off this one kid once.  but he totally deserved it.  you weren't there, were you?  i was in ubuntu-massachusetts as I believe05:22
Agent_bobadrock358 i realize that in your vernacular calling someone a dog is a minor thing.  but in some cultures around the world that is quite an insult.   and you must remember that any irc channel is a world wide forum05:23
adrock358agent_bob.  in my culture "dog" is not minor.  It is a term of endearment.  If I offended you sir, I apologize sincerely.  Thanks.                      -Adam05:24
apparle'apt-zip creates a script that uses wget to download the files; easily translated to a msdos script' This is the information I get from ubuntu chatroom. I have a box of kubuntu without net and a box with Windows XP at work. Can anybody help05:26

adrock358Apparle.  Oh.  you want to use it?05:28
adrock358Apparle.  let's do it together because I am doing it right now.  First, find removeable media.  2nd, download apt zip from synaptic.  Then we will continue.05:28
apparleadrock358: I have a removable 1GB USB drive. I will download apt-zip05:29
adrock358agent_bob.  i can't find apt zip on my comp once i d/l'd it.  running "zip," does nothing.05:30
adrock358apparle.  ok.  agent_bob is helping me too.  it sounds like it is self-explanatory once you run apt-zip05:30
Agent_bob"kubuntu without net" <^> may be totally without networking, in which case you will have to use the url http://packages.ubuntu.com to first get apt-zip and transfer it to the linux box.05:31
Agent_bob@apparle ^05:31
Agent_bobadrock358 i don't know where you downloaded it to, or how.    care to fill in some blanks for me ?05:32

Agent_bobdpkg -L apt-zip | less      < adrock358 that will list all the files that the package installed and give their location.05:34

apparleAgent_bob: not understood05:34
adrock358apparle.  you are on win xp?  ---agentbob or someone else may need to assist you.  i recommend reading all there is about apt-zip from ubuntu pages first before asking for help.05:35
Agent_bobadrock358 but you probably want to save the package from the package cache, to move it to the system that isn't networked.    /var/cache/apt/archives/apt-zip*05:35
adrock358agent_bob.  I install apt-zip on the UN-NETWORKED box?05:35
apparleI have the .deb file for apt-zip. I will install when I am home. What next05:36
Agent_bobok.   then   you should be able to view the man page    man apt-zip05:36
adrock358apparle.  i don't know.  perhaps come back then into the irc chat room and ask for help.05:36
apparleAgent_bob: Not right now but when I am home05:36
apparleadrock358 & Agent_bob: I wanna ask you people that can I use apt-zip such that I get the downloads from a XP box and install it at home05:38
adrock358apparle.  you got to download the packages you want to install first.  then use apt-zip to transfer them to disk, then go home, and install them on your linux box.  how to do all these steps however, I am not sure.05:39
Agent_bobapparle yes you install apt-zip at home and apt-zip-list <package_name>    and use the script it generates to then fetch the packages you need.05:39
adrock358agent_bob.  thank you for your help.  I am too tired to do this tonight.05:39

sco50000what is the root password for the kubuntu fiesty 7.04 live cd?05:53
Hydrogenthere isn't.05:54
hsystemxXsco50000 , password =  livecd05:54
Hydrogenuhh no05:55
sco50000hsystemxX: that didn't work05:55
ubotuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo05:55
Hydrogenthere isn't one.05:55
hsystemxXHydrogen, if you log out in a live cd05:55
hsystemxXto login you need a password (system password)05:55
hsystemxXpassword = livecd05:56
Hydrogenthen you don't need the root password to log in05:56
Hydrogenand the root password is what was requested05:56
Hydrogenplease, answer the question, not what you think the question may possibly mean05:56
hsystemxXroot pass in kubuntu is the same as user password...05:56
hsystemxXi know what im talking.05:56
Hydrogenit isn't.05:56
Hydrogenand you don't./05:56
MilitantPotatonah, sudo password is, if the user is in that group, if I'm guessing right05:56
hsystemxXyes i know, he is not doing passwd and setting root, but the live cd password works as system password.05:57
Hydrogenbut not the root password05:57
Hydrogenthe question was, "what is the root password"05:57
Hydrogenit wasn't "What is the password for the user"05:57
Hydrogenyou cannot login as root with the password "livecd"05:57
hsystemxXyeah but use your logic, is a livecd... he is asking the default password of the livecd which is livecd.05:57
Hydrogenyou cannot su to root with the password "livecd"05:57
Hydrogenno, he's asking for the root password05:58
Hydrogenit says it right in the question!05:58
hsystemxXwell there is no root pass so, it isnt root password.05:58
MilitantPotatoI'll turn this internet around if you two don't stop.05:58
Agent_bobapparle here is an example of the scripts generated by apt-zip-list   if you are interested in looking  http://ubuntu.pastebin.us/?show=d318125af05:58
hsystemxXso he is not asking root password... follow you logic LOL05:58
Hydrogenhe was asking for the root password05:59
Hydrogenbecause, most linux distrobutions have a root password05:59
Hydrogenand one would assume that *buntu does as well05:59
Hydrogenthat would be why there is a factoid about it05:59
hsystemxXlivecd doesnt have root password. But if you want to manage the livecd, the root password LIKE* is livecd.05:59
Agent_bobMilitantPotato is it really two of them?  or just one guy arguing with himself ?05:59
Hydrogenthat would not be me06:00

ubotuUbuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper Drake) was the fourth release of Ubuntu. See !lts for more details.06:09
holyguyverWhy is Kubuntu Hardy not going to be LTS?06:09
Agent_bobwhy should it be? it's only 2 years from the first LTS06:10
MilitantPotatoBecause it wouldn't be as awsome.06:10
no0ticAgent_bob, ubuntu will06:10
holyguyverSo when will Kubuntu's next LTS be?06:11
NotAutoAwayNickI would say that one of the primary reasons is a) No one wants to commit to supporting kde3.5 for five more years, and b) No one wants to commit to supporting kde 4.0 for five more years06:11
Agent_bobno0tic ?06:11
NotAutoAwayNickand as such, it makes more sense to wait for a release of kde that makes sense to support for five years06:12
NotAutoAwayNickthis is, however, just a guess06:12
holyguyverWhy not commit to supporting KDE4 for the next 5 years?06:12
NotAutoAwayNickI didn't say that06:12
NotAutoAwayNickI said kde4.006:12
holyguyverO I get you, as in they may be willing to support 4.1 or 4.3 or whatever when it comes out :)06:13
Agent_bobwait.    support kde for 5 years   no.   that's not how LTS works06:13
NotAutoAwayNickeven three years06:13
NotAutoAwayNickwhatever it is on the desktop06:13
Agent_bob5 year support is only for server    and server is gui'less06:13
Agent_bobyes 3 year.06:14
NotAutoAwayNickit doesn't change the underlying fact :)06:14
NotAutoAwayNickor underlying guess06:14
Agent_boboh maybe that "<Agent_bob> padentic too"  was for me not you....06:14
NotAutoAwayNicki'm sure there were other reasons06:15
NotAutoAwayNickand I have a feeling we will see another lts release sometime before the dapper one runs out06:15
holyguyverIs there a blog entry or wiki page that discusses the reasonings?06:16
Agent_bobwell 9.4   tenative,  9.6 likely06:16
NotAutoAwayNickriddels blog and jucato's blog talks about it06:16

f00fI've only ever heard bad things about it so I'm a bit nervous08:18
DreadKnightstdin: welcome :D08:18
sigma_um guys what type of partition is a boot partition? because there are only ext2 and ext3 available in the installer08:19
DreadKnightsigma_: "/"08:19
ol_dude67i use ext3 but you can choose what ever08:19
sub[t]rnlthats the root partition, dk08:19
stdinDreadKnight: hey :)08:20
DreadKnightmount point08:20
sub[t]rnlyeah, he is needing a boot partition before a certain cylinder, cause his bios is old and can't read the kernel08:20
ol_dude67ok well im out of here for the night you all take it easy on the flip side:D08:20
f00fand another question, since I'm still n00b to 64-bit.. I'm on Intel, can I install the kubuntu amd64 build?08:20
sub[t]rnllates ol_dude6708:21
ol_dude67foof, thats for 64 bit not just amd, atleast that is what i have been told.sub laters08:21
jussi01f00f: yep08:21
sigma_would boot be a smaller partition with the mount point set as /boot ?08:21
sub[t]rnlsigma_➜ aye08:22
f00fI'll try it then, because I want to see all my 4GB....  but where can I look to find out if: emu10k1 drivers are supported?08:22

sigma_sub[t]rnl: how big should the boot partition be?08:29
sub[t]rnland some would consider that overkill08:29
jussi01sigma_: and it should be the first one on the drive08:29
sub[t]rnlyeah, important ^^08:30
sigma_sub[t]rnl: so a 50mb ext3 partition with /boot as the mount point at the beginning of the disk should do it?08:31
sigma_ok il make sure its the first one, but how will the installer know that it must install grub there?08:32
jussi01!hi | sener08:33

sub[t]rnlor use grub-install08:36
sub[t]rnlok, im getting some shuteye.  take care men.08:36
sigma_jussi01: can i specify that in the installer?08:37
jussi01sigma_: right at the end, it asks you where you want to install grub...08:39
sigma_jussi01: yeah do i change that from hd0 (the default) to sda2 (my boot partition at the beginning of the drive)?08:40
kirkthey guys. ive just had  computer crash, and i want to reinstall lateset kubuntu. should i wait till a version with kde4 go out ?08:48

MarphineOkay kewl. I'm about to reinstall but I think that the following item might be noteworthy. I am unable to kill the process I've already removed with adept so I'm going forward with it for the time being. If this fails I can try this Synaptic14:54
MarcCMarphine: you're talking about killing the k3b process?14:55
Marphineyes still unable to kill the process... odd14:55
MarcCMarphine: did you try kill -9?14:55
MarphineYeah well wouldn't I want to? I'm using the GUI to kill it... I don't know how to do it from a command line prompt14:55
MarcCMarphine: you should try htop, makes that really easy14:56
MarphineI wanna kill it before doing the reinstall14:56
MarcCcarl: are you using a CD in your computer with install files on it? Adept is looking for one because it's listed in your sources.list14:57
MarcCcarl: if not, tell Adept not to use that repository14:57
carlthe drive is empty14:57
MarcCcarl: ok, you need to remove that repository, most likely14:57
carland where do i do that?14:58
christian_hallo @ all!14:58
MarcCMarphine: can't remember the cmd line way - just sudo apt-get install htop, then find the k3b process with f3, hit f9 twice, then select sigkill :)14:59
MarphineI tried using "kill <process.id.number>" to no avail and "kill -9 <process.id.no.> also fruitlessly14:59
christian_wie stelle ich bei den gtk programmen alles auf deutsch. welche pakete sind das??14:59

MarphineE: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)15:00
MarphineE: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?15:00
MarcCMarphine: you have adept running?15:00
MarcCor synaptic?15:00
MarphineI knew that wouldn't work silly me15:00
MarcCchristian_: #kubuntu-de15:00
carlthink i found it15:01
Marphineokay the install worked now ... er what's this utility supposed to accomplish?15:03
MarcCMarphine: it's a task manager15:03
Marphinetee hee I must trust you15:03
MarcCMarphine: start htop, type f3, then type 'k3b'15:03
MarcCMarphine: with k3b selected, hit F9 then type the number for sigkill on the left15:04
MarcCor select sigkill anyway15:04
Marphineokay got it. Not too easy on the eyes... let's see what happend. Would've been easier to restart but wtf I'm learning so this is good15:04
carlstill the same error så either it was the wrong thing I changed or there is another problem :/15:06
MarcCcarl: paste sources.list again?15:07
Marphinewow that process is hard tyo kill15:10
Marphineit's like bedbugs15:11
MarcCcarl: now what happens if you do "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade"?15:12
MarphineSo MarcC do you think it's important to kill it before doing the reinstall?15:12
MarcCMarphine: no15:12
MarphineTo me it just seems like the best way to proceed but I'm strangely stumped15:12
MarphineOkay well I'm gonna plop it back in with Adept and see if it'll go15:13
MarcCI don't see why you'd need to kill it if it's just crashed bits sitting in RAM...but before you run (after reinstall) you might want to kill it15:13
carlou might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.15:13
carlThe following packages have unmet dependencies:15:13
carl  j2re1.4-mozilla-plugin: Depends: j2re1.4 but it is not installed15:13

MarphineIt actually inverts and then reinverts every bit on the drive, insuring that the drive can not only be read but written on every sector15:18
MarphineIt took 12 hours to run the most thorough test on spinrite on my 40G drive with a 933P3 machine15:19

ubotuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo17:41

MilitantPotatoThat's easily fixed19:28
unagiit will give me the same error19:28
unagiexcept for sdb119:28
MilitantPotatoyou tried it after we changed all that stuff?19:29
unagiif it does ti for external19:29

unagianything i put in there19:29
MilitantPotatoWhat programs are using it?19:29
MilitantPotatosudo mkdir /media/External-119:30
MilitantPotatosudo chown user:name /media/External-119:30
unagithen it mounts as External-219:30
MilitantPotatotry unplugging it?19:30
mefisto__unagi: what directory are you currently in?19:30
unagii have19:30

MilitantPotatodid you add anything to .hal-mtab19:31
unagii dont know19:32

unagii uninstalled and reinstalld hal19:32
MilitantPotatokdesudo kate /media/.hal-mtab19:32
unagianything to do with hal19:32
MilitantPotatocrazy move :)19:32
unagiwell that is what ubuntuforums called to do19:32
MilitantPotatodid you change that thing I told you to add to /media/External19:33
MilitantPotatoyou messed it all up ;)19:33
unagii didnt do it19:33
unagiive never heard of .hal-mtab19:33
unaginor have i ever edited it19:33

unagiyay for new errors!19:36
flipstarKevinM: try to change the default server19:36
MilitantPotatoWhat error?19:36
flipstarKevinM: if this happens to every package19:36
unagiscratch that19:36
unagisame error19:36
MilitantPotatoThat's how my NTFS's are setup.19:36
unaginow what19:36
unagibut adding anything to fstab the drive wont mount19:37
KevinMoh, sorry, I mean when installing kubuntu (or ubuntu as well) I'm trying to install the 64bit version on a intel core 2 duo 660019:37
MilitantPotatoDid you do the chown user:user /media/External19:38
MilitantPotatocaps matter.19:38
KevinMbut the md5sums for theinstaller files all check out on other machines. Just not this one.19:38
flipstarKevinM: so you have an md5 error on one machine and no error at a similar machine during install..?19:38
smerilhow cn i get sound to work19:39
KevinMyou got, flipstar19:39
unagiyes i did19:39
flipstarthe other machine also have 64bit..?19:39
MilitantPotatoI gotta run, got an appointment19:39
MilitantPotatosorry man19:40
unagiits cool19:40
unagitheres a few problems im having with kubuntu that makes it hard to like it over gnome19:40
flipstarKevinM: this happend once or more than once ?19:40
KevinMI know the iso file downloaded and burned correctly, so something is happening during the install's md5sum checks19:41
unagihow do i find out if my cpu is 64 bit capable19:41
MilitantPotatoKevinM: bad RAM or HD?19:41
mefisto__unagi: maybe try a restart after all those changes? perhaps those errors will not reoccur and you can forget about them19:41
Daisuke_Laptopunagi: what processor do you have?19:41
KevinMI was able to install fedora core 8 no prob19:41
flipstarKevinM: this happend once or more than once ?19:41
flipstarif once it could be your hardware ..19:42
KevinMI've burned three different CDs trying it out. No success.19:42
Daisuke_LaptopKevinM: did you do an md5 check on the iso after you downloaded it?19:42
flipstarerror at the same package ?19:42
KevinMyeah. checked the iso, the proceeded to check the packages reported "corrupt" they all checked out and matched the included md5sum lists19:42
KevinMSo I know that data corruption during download or burn is not the problem19:43
KevinMI haven't tried the 32-bit version yet19:44
flipstardoes the error accour at the same package ?19:44
KevinMit occurs at the first package, so the install stops and doesn't bother to check any additional packages19:45
KevinMso I guess this isn't ringing any bells for anyone reading19:45
sfearshow do i figure out what the /dev of my usb thumb drive is so i can mount it?19:45
KevinMsfears: try fdisk -l19:46
flipstarsudo fdisk -l sfears19:46
KevinMthat's an "ell"19:46
sfearsthat only lists hard disks19:46
KevinMtry "tail /var/log/messages" right after you connect it19:46
flipstaror use lsusb19:46
sfearsit's plugged in but lsusb doesn't show anything..19:47
mefisto__I've been having a problem with video aspect ratio in players that use xine. It's always too narrow, but only in kubuntu. When I log in to an xfce session, aspect is OK. If I log in to kde after xfce, aspect is OK. But logging into kde first, it's always wrong (too narrow)19:47
sfearsso messages shows scsi2.. is it mount /dev/scsi2 /directory?19:48
sigma_1234whats the correct way to search for files in konqueror?19:48
sfearssays scsi2 doesn't exist19:48
flipstarprobably /dev/sdd19:48
sfearsdoesn't exist flipstar19:49
flipstarsigma_1234: ctrg+f19:49
flipstarthen try that log at /var/log/messages19:49
helemefisto: I have same problem with my 4:3 crt. Problem came with gutsy. 16:10 tft working fine.19:50
mefisto__hele: for me it started about a week ago, I've had gutsy installed about a month19:51
flipstardid you changed some video drivers or something ?19:52
sigma_1234flipstar: yeah i know that but when i type something in it never finds anything even when the files exist19:52
KevinMsfears: you can try tail /var/log/messages | grep "removable"19:52
flipstar<-- sfears hat den Server verlassen (Remote closed the connection).19:52
sigma_1234flipstar: is there a special syntax that must be used?19:53
flipstarno ..19:53
flipstarmaybe you put something in the tab 'content'..?19:53
unagiDaisuke i have core 2 duo 1.6ghz19:55
unagii forget the cpu model number though19:55
unagiintel  makes it hard to remember19:55
sigma_1234someone told me to put something before the word i was searching for and it worked. not too sure what it was though19:56
mefisto__sigma_1234: the search filter thing in the toolbar makes it easy19:56
flipstarunagi: the core 2 duo series have 64bit support19:57
phoenixzI have a presentation that I used in an introductionary course to Linux.. Im thinking about releasing it to the public, but what license would it have to be if it were to be "open source" ?19:58
sigma_1234the toolbar only searches the face of the directory you are in19:58
sigma_1234creative commons licence19:58
helemefisto_: I think that there have been some update wich suppouse that everyone have 16:10 monitor. Xorg.conf have to some aspect ratio setting but those did'nt work with xine. I solve problem using mplayer.19:59

bittinhave tryied that20:11
bittinand mPlayer20:11
phoenixzflipstar, sweeet! I will first have to convince my bosses that I should release it openly, but with this at least I can investigate it a bit20:11
phoenixzflipstar, realplayer for linux is like poison with your hotdog.. you can try it but I would not really recommend it..20:11
flipstarbittin: real player doesnt work for real player streams ?20:12

flipstarany errors ?20:12
unagiok so theoretically20:13
PiciI hope that site doesnt become too popupar.  Keeps setting off my hilights.20:13
unagi64 runs more efficiently?20:13
bittintried for hours and hours to get it to work20:14
KevinMunagi: just has a larger address space and an enhanced ISA. I wouldn't call x86_64 more efficient, just more20:14
unagijust more what20:14
KevinMhaha... exactly20:14
KevinMjust more20:14
unagithen why do they bother writing programs for 6420:15
KevinMlarger address space can be useful sometimes, plus some instructions work better on a 64bit architecture (float calcs, etc)20:15
flipstarthats the thing programs in 64bit are faster but not all programms support 64bit20:16
unagii know but maya does20:16
unagiso programs like maya probably works better on 64?20:16
KevinMyep. As good or better.20:16
unagiwell heck20:16
unagiall of a sudden i  have need to reformat20:17
flipstarbut..other programs may not work as long as you dont chroot an 32bit environment ..20:17
unagiis that nice and involved?20:17
sigma16where would i go to get help on setting up a mail server...20:17
KevinMyep, and you need 32bit compatibility libraries to build some apps from source20:17
flipstarthere are a few known..like codecs and...i forgot20:17
tyson_how do i take ownership of a file currently owned by root?20:18
unagiok ok ok..........lets try this...........if i were to make another partition jsut for 64 kubuntu, can i customize it to run just maya and a select few other things i needm inimalistically?20:18
Odd-rationaleI created a folder I called /home/Share which I plan to use for sharing files across users. My question is who should I make the owner of this folder? me or root? Thanks!20:18
KevinMsudo chown OWNER FILE20:19
unagiactually if i was going to do that i might as well install a whole new flavor of linux20:19
flipstarOdd-rationale: you can set to allow other users to access20:19
unagirpm based20:19
tyson_thanks mate20:20
bittiniam getting it to work but not directly in the browser20:20
unagii wonder what flavor best works with maya20:20
flipstarbittin: there was a thing called helix-player maybe you'll try this20:20
flipstaror vlc..20:21
mefisto__bittin: is it supposed to work embedded in the browser?20:21
flipstarbut with vlc im not sure20:21
Odd-rationaleflipstar: I opened dolphin as root, right-clicked the folder and changed all the Access Permissions to "Can View & Madify Content" I was just wondering who would be best the Owner of the folder. Or does it not matter?20:21
bittini have tryied helix-player, mplayer and realplayer now20:21
flipstari dont think i would Odd-rationale20:21
Odd-rationaleflipstar: OK Because last time I messed with file permissions I ended up not being able to log on. :(20:22
geniiOdd-rationale: Better to make a group called something unimaginative like Share then add whoever's allowed into the group. Then change the goup ownership to that group and permissions 755 or such20:22
kreibI get operation not permitted trying to chown a file when using sudo. What's up with that?20:22
bittincan try vlc also20:22
unagianyone know anything about maya?20:22
bittindiden't work in vlc20:23
Odd-rationalegenii: OK. I don't know much about file permissions. I'll see if I can figure out how to do that.20:23
geniiunagi: I know there is a Unix version. A Linux version  I don't know. Best to email someone at their information desk or similar20:23
unagii know i run it20:23
unagiim wondering what is the best flavor of linux to run it20:23
mefisto__bittin: which browser?20:23
geniiunagi: Unix <> Linux20:23
bittinmefisto__: Firefox20:24
geniiunagi: A Unix version will not necessarily run on Linux. They are not the same thing20:24
flipstarbittin: the screenshot you made just showed that real player was not found20:24
bittinwhat more u wan't to know20:24
flipstarmaybe youll have to link that in the firefox plugin dir20:24
unagiim running maya, on linux20:24
bittinits in the /home20:24
unagithere is a linux version of maya20:24
bittinwhere is the FF plugin dir?20:25
bittinwas a while i was using linux20:25
geniiunagi: Good then :) You should ask the people at Maya which linux their software prefers best.20:25
unagithey take too long to answer20:26
flipstarbittin: $HOME/.mozilla/plugins20:26
Odd-rationalegenii: I'm creating a new group through the KDE system settings. What should the group ID be? the default is 1002. Is that OK?20:26
unagii wonder if its possible to have maya run as an OS20:26
geniiOdd-rationale: Yeah, thats fine20:26
flipstaryes it is Odd-rationale20:26
unagithatd be awesome20:26
flipstarunagi: isn maya a 3d software..?20:26
flipstaruhm how youll have to run it as an os?20:27
KevinMunagi: unless maya is built to use 64 bit extensions you won't see any difference between 32 and 64 bit20:27
bittinbut now helix started it :P20:28
unagiwow ok this is cute20:28
bittinbut don't works20:28
unagii accidently turned my backlight off how do i get it back on20:28

Odd-rationalegenii: Now for the ownership of the /home/Share folder, should I make the User = Share and the Group = Share?20:28
flipstarbittin: try another link..20:29
geniiOdd-rationale: User does not matter. The imortant thing is group to be Share20:29
unagiwow this is annoying!20:29
Odd-rationalegenii: OK thanks so much!20:29
unagihow do i get my backlight back on20:29
bittinflipstar: can't be problem with the site its swedens biggest TV-network20:29
unagiis it suppose to stay off when u move the slider down?20:30
geniiOdd-rationale: No problem. Don't forget to add users who will be allowed access to that folder into the new group called Share20:30
flipstarright bittin the stream works..i just tested with mplayer20:30
Odd-rationalegenii: Yes, thanks!20:30
KevinMunagi: I think the 64 bit version of Maya has to be bought seperately from the 32 bit version20:30
geniiOdd-rationale: Also, to make the read/write/execute permissions of the folder something like 75520:30
unagiKevinM: i have both versions20:30
unagican someone help me reinstate my backlight please20:31
unagiis there a command for it?20:31
bittinflipstar: it work on some streams :P20:31
Odd-rationalegenii: sudo chmod -R 755 /home/Share ?20:32
geniiOdd-rationale: Exactly, yes :)20:32
unagiis it that no one knows or there isnt a command for it20:32
KevinMunagi: how did it get turned off?20:33
unagii slid the slider down20:33
unagiKevinM: i slid the slider down20:35
maracutaiawhats up20:35
geniiunagi: Backlight is usually hardware controlled.20:35
Odd-rationalegenii: Ok, going to log out to test. Thanks so much!20:36

flipstaris there an easy way to create an random number in a specific range ?21:01
Odd-rationaleWill umask affect every file the user creates or just the file in a specific folder e.g. /home/Share ?21:01
__-osh-__Odd-rationale: also have a look at pam_umask which might do what you ask. I just glanced it and it does look promising.21:01
__-osh-__Odd-rationale: All from what I gather.21:02

__-osh-__Odd-rationale: good luck. =)21:06
anton__where can i find buici clock settings?21:08
__-osh-__Odd-rationale: if you could get your users to use the command chgrp then perhaps all files created by those users would belong to the group that they'd changed to. Have a look at it.21:09

__-osh-__Odd-rationale: Somehow I don't quite get what your'e trying to do. if you need your users to edit files then you could have overwrite-issues. Perhaps you should look at SVN or something like that instead?21:10

__-osh-__anton__: no.21:11

unagiwhy does kde alt+tab in such a weird way21:23

vmaweird way?21:24
alesanit would be very cool if alt+tab was working in a meaningful way21:25

mefisto__what's wrong with alt-tab?21:27
genii Bizzeh: If you install grub to a partition instead of an entire drive it overwrites the partition information.21:27

unaginot 'random'21:31
anton__Anyone got a tip for a nice kde addon?21:31
alesanmefisto__: the first window on alt+tab should be the last window you used21:31
unagia b c d...........a is visible...........alt tab once..........the order is now b a c d............b is visible...............alt tab twice...............c b a d..............c is visible21:31
unagiit makes so much more sense that way21:31
mefisto__alesan: that's exactly what it does here21:32
alesanmefisto__: it has NEVER done that in every KDE installation I tried in the past, almost 10 years21:33
unagithe actual title is 'walk through applications'21:33
mefisto__maybe you have the taskbar in panel settings sorted alphabetically or something?21:34
alesanmefisto__: which settings have you changed for that?21:34
unagithey arent sorted alphabetically21:34
unagiwhat would it have to do with the taskbar21:34
alesanno, I don't think so. I never touch those options :)21:34
alesanindeed, the taskbar I think has no importance here...21:35
vmai've got the same behavior here :o21:35
unagiwhich one vma21:35
mefisto__right-click the panel>configure panel>taskbar. maybe try switching of alphabetical sorting and grouping similar tasks21:36
vmathe right one21:36
val0SlimeyPete: you around?21:36
alesanvma: how did you do that?21:36
DFlamefolks, just a quickie.......21:37
vmait's like that since kubuntu is on my computer :o21:37
DFlamei hit ctrl-alt-esc to get the kill cursor21:37
DFlamei missed >.>21:37
DFlamethe desktop too the hit21:37
david__howdy - > akgregator or liferea21:38
SSJ_GZ<unagi> basically you should be able to alt + tab between 2 windows even if you have 20 open21:39
SSJ_GZAnyway, you can accomplish this by unchecking the inappropriately named "Show Window List When Switching Windows"21:40
vmaDFlame: you want your desktop back?21:41
DFlameplease :)21:42
vmamh, how about writing kdesktop on konsole?21:43

Steven_Mmy uncle has installed a new firewire card, will kubuntu detect it automaically22:17
Daisuke_Laptopthat depends, is it on the supported hardware list?  (but overall, given ubuntu's track record, yes, it should probably be detected.  but who uses firewire anyway?)22:18
Steven_MDaisuke_Laptop: my uncle hehe22:19
Daisuke_Laptopsometimes i have 3d acceleration on here, sometimes i don't.22:20
Steven_MDaisuke_Laptop: can you give me a link to the suported hardware list?22:21
Daisuke_Laptopwho makes it?22:23
mefisto__how can I change the resolution of the login screen? It's not the same res as after login22:23
Steven_MDaisuke_Laptop: thanks :)22:26
unagi_anyone know how to change the alt+tab behavior22:26
vmadunno, sorry :22:28
unagi_vma so you can alt tab between 2 windows even if you have 5 open?22:28
unagi_what version of kde do you have22:28
SSJ_GZunagi_: Did you see my post above?22:28
mefisto__unagi_: system settings>window behaviour. Then right-click "what's this" to get an explanation of what the options do22:29
Daisuke_Laptopit works by default22:29
Daisuke_Laptopalt+ tab goes from here to my xterm22:29
Daisuke_Laptopalt + tab again goes back here.22:29
Daisuke_Laptopthere are a few other apps open as well22:29
unagi_ok........whatever the term for alt+tab is for switching through application22:29
unagi_task switching i guess is the term for it22:30
mefisto__unagi_: you want alt-tab to just cycle current and last-used window, right?22:30
unagi_well kind of22:30
unagi_i shuold be able to re arrange the heirarchy with just alt+tab based on if i hold down alt or not22:30
unagi_like with windows or gnome22:30
mefisto__well, that's what it has always done for me. check system settings> window behaviour, and see if "show window list while switching windows" is ticked22:32
vmaversion is 3.5.8 :o22:32
unagi_that helps22:33

unagi_can someone explain to me how to find the bash command for a program i just installed from repos when the name i used to dl it doesnt run it23:23
shindahey guys was wondering, I'm using media tomb and wanted to have it startup as daemon when I boot, I tried putting a bash script link to run it on load in my /etc/init.d folder23:25
shindabut it doesn't seem to load, so I'm guessing I'm missing something here, if anyone could help it be great23:26
mefisto__unagi_: "apt-cache search packagename" might give you a clue. what did you install?23:28
Xcell using a (M2V-MX SE) board with via graphics, how do I get off vessa?23:28
ol_dude67shinda, it might help if you pastebin the file you are trying to use? so someone may look at it.23:29
ubotupastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org (be sure to give the URL of your paste - see also the #kubuntu channel topic)23:30
mefisto__unagi_: that confused me too when I first installed it. it's not a single program. try "info imagemagick" for an explanation23:31
unagi_well that makes more sense23:31
Dr_willisXcell,  if thats a nvidia card check the !nvidia factoid to see what one of the nvidia drivers its to be using.  glx, glx-legacy, or the newer.  i guess..  That card dosent sound famuler to me at all.23:31
unagi_so im learning that imagemagick doesnt support .iff23:31
unagi_is there any program that supports .iff to .jpg or .png or .iff sequences to .avi .mpg23:32
shindaol_dude67: np - the file I made in my /etc/init.d is - http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/54397/23:32
Dr_willis.iff ? you mean the old amiga animation format?23:33
Dr_willisiff to png ive seen done I think with the  imagemagik tools.  Not sure if gimp can load those or not23:34
