tzangeroh well00:16
tzangerI'm trying to get a routed network across this00:16
mixedstunatra, thanks00:16
jhutchinsadam: You need to go to a console (ctrl-alt-F1 for instance), then stop dm.00:17
jhutchinsadam: /etc/init.d/dm stop00:17
jhutchinsadam: sudo of course00:17
adamjhutchins: Okay, I'll do that, thanks :)00:17
jhutchinsadam: Pretty sure it's just dm, could possiblly be kdm instead.00:17
tzangerI can add the route, I can ping the other side of the tunnel, but i can't get past it.  weird.00:17
jhutchinstzanger: possibly the problem is the settings on the far end.00:18
mixedstunata, is there another utility besides knetwork manager?  for some reason knetworkmanager isn't working in my disto00:19
sensaeI'm rather jealous of VMWare Fusion, it's their Mac fork. Apparently you can use bootcamp to dualboot OSX and Windows, and then inside OSX, boot your Windows partition as a VM with DirectX support :/00:20
excitatoryso i noticed the XGL implementation in ubuntu defaults to the pc101 style keyboard mapping..I'm attempting to manually set it to pc105 with this command: setxkbmap -rules xorg -model pc105 -layout us    >>> However, I get this error: Couldn't interpret _XKB_RULES_NAMES property00:20
doobehyeah, installed fusion on my mates macbook pro-- pretty nice integration00:20
excitatoryI'm searching around for solutions, but nothing seems to work.. it's like it's missing a component.00:21
doobehI'm sure the dx support will bleed over to the other vm varients sooner or later00:21
sensaeI would love to be able to open my Windows partition as a VM, even without DX support00:21
doobehit's a bit more tricky if your wanting to use your current windows system (rather then creating the vm machine from scratch)00:22
doobehget a backup of your computer and restore it into a vm machine00:23
sensaeIf you create a VM from scratch, can you get that effect? Being able to open a VM of Windows, or boot into it natively?00:23
doobehyou can open it for sure-- boot into it natively I'm not sure about00:23
doobehthe higher end vm products allow something like that00:24
doobehgsx server or something?00:24
doobeh<-- terrible memory.00:24
doobehyeah, but you can run windows in a vm within linux no problem00:24
doobehThe way I've got my machine set up at work is have my main os running (windows in my work case)00:25
doobehand then just dedicate my second monitor to showing the kubuntu vm machine when I've got it up00:25
doobehwith vmware tools, the mouse transfers fine between both machines and you can drag-drop files to and from easily00:25

sensaeIf I use the -s flag on badblocks.. how does it show errors?01:46
sensaeI'm assuming "Buffer I/O Error on device hdb, logical block xxxxxx" is a bad sign01:47

sensaeIs badblocks having an issue, or is my drive probably toasted?01:49
xenobiusslot-cars ?01:49
intelikeysensae badblocks takes a long time.01:49
sensaeintelikey: I know it does, but I used the -s flag. It was doing it's thing normally, and now I'm getting scrolling "Buffer I/O error on device hdb, logical block (number)"01:50
xenobiusi love old marilyn manson, he was funny01:50
sensaeThe numbers are sequential, it looks like sectors. Is that badblock's way of telling me those are bad?01:51
sensaeI'm used to running it without the -s flag, where any output = bad sign01:51

intelikeysensae oh my.  sounds like you have found something.    could be  1. cable loose (dirty or otherwise not connecting full time)  2. controler on the drive failing.   3. physical defect on the hd   4. a peace of code that is triping an unknown error. (to test for this one you can cat /dev/zero > /dev/hd?   and run badblocks again)  ***destroies all data ***01:53

intelikeydoc heh i guess02:02

Dr_willisand yes ive seen many a fight over  is 'scripting' programing.. and   at the most common definition i say yes it is. :)02:02
intelikeysensae yes  that was #2 in the list ^02:02

ActionParsnipjeisma, its looks and some apps run in gnome and others in kde. you can mix the 2 but you'll need the libraries for both which bloats your system and theres usually one that'll run in the deskktop you choose03:48
tyson_how do i change the login screen?03:48

hydrogen!flashissues | bfrog05:56
ubotubfrog: The Flash plugin installation is currently broken. This is due to Adobe changing the tar file that the package downloads. Fixes have landed in -proposed for testing, but most most users are advised to wait until packages are approved and released in -updates.05:56

jussi01bfrog: that it works, there are no bugs etc.06:03

ScorpKingrysiek|pl: yeah but i'm trying to figure out how i play mp3's if i don't have it installed10:08

ScorpKingubuntu: yep10:08
rysiek|plScorpKing: they don't, by themselves, install the codecs, they just have the packages with codecs in their dependancies10:09
ScorpKingrysiek|pl: ok i see. so it must be this one then libavcodec1d ?10:09
ubuntu so if i put a grub on hd2 (as well as there being one on hd0) will this mess up the boot?10:09

RamlanoaXess: the filename is encoded in some other character set than what you are using in ubuntu. Do all ubuntu installations use utf-8 by default?13:10
Dr_Willisremove it.  remove it from the cache. perhaps enable a different repository for it.13:10
Dr_Williscould be it was just a bad download that one time.13:11
Dr_Willisyou may just need to remove it from the cache13:11
ahmosok i will try this13:11
noaXessRamla: see here.. http://files.wmx.ch/upload/jpg/70_snapshot3.jpg13:12
noaXessRamla: that are files, that i have copied fomr a windows box to my kubuntu13:12
RamlaYeah, windows doesn't use utf-8 (at least by default) so those filenames are just encoded in a different character set. I think there are conversion tools available if you want to get rid of all broken filenames13:13
ahmosit can't remove it too :D ha ha13:13
Dr_Willis it should be in /var/cache/apt somewhere. You will need root access to remove it.13:16

djdarkmanuntil I`ll have the time to put my machine in for repair this would be a greate help15:57
sigma_1234you should probably just format15:57
djdarkmansigma_1234: done that15:57
BluesKajdjdarkman,Open adept package manager, On the menu of that screen you will want to click on Adept -> Manage  Repositories. Click the Kubuntu software tab,check all the boxes "X".

ForgeAusI don't like rebooting either :) unless I absolutely have to I know how u feel16:17
ForgeAuswhats worse is people tell me to do it at the most inopportune times16:17
BluesKajsometimes the dvdrom needs rebooting , so...16:17
ForgeAuslike ones where I wouldn't have minded so much if I didn't have a 300mb file downloading in the b/g thats halfway through or something16:18
ForgeAusI guess I could boot my Kubuntu in a VM and see what output I get running Xserver in there16:20
ForgeAusbut thats not likely going to help since it doesn't use fglxr inside the VM16:20
ForgeAusdoes it?16:20
payanhow can i disable an audio device???16:21
ForgeAuswb noaXess16:22
noaXessForgeAus: no changes, after reboot..16:23
ForgeAusok do you have any other DVD's to try it with?16:23
noaXessForgeAus: i will try... wait..16:23
ForgeAusdoy ou know if the one your trying has encryption or copy protection or something?16:23
BluesKajnoaXess, if it's a commercial dvd it should play , but you may need to use K9copy to burn it16:25
ForgeAusBlues I'd hope it plays but I'm not making any assumptions here16:25
ScorpKinghi BluesKaj :)16:26
ForgeAussince noaXess is saying his didn't, lets see if we can get one that does16:26
BluesKajhi ScorpKing16:26
ForgeAusif not theres something else wrong and I don't think I can help any further16:26

ScorpKingSchuenemann: there's kchm16:30
SlimeyPeteor xchm16:30
Schuenemanncan't I convert it to a better format?16:30
ScorpKingthere should be something to convert it to html but i'm not sure16:31
ForgeAuschm is mostly html like anyway16:31
Schuenemannjust more stupid and MS16:31
ForgeAusbasically html with an index16:31
ScorpKingnoaXess: do you have w32codecs installed? and kubuntu-restricted-extras?16:31
Schuenemannthere are some pages on google, I'll check16:32
ForgeAuslol Trav :)16:32
ForgeAusI had mIRC in crossover too :)16:32
SchuenemannI had mirc in wine16:32
TimSAll version travkin :P16:33
ForgeAuscrossover is wine ...16:33
ForgeAuswith some extras16:33
TimSKonversation > * :P16:33
ForgeAusno directX tho16:33
ForgeAusor at least not to Cedega's calibre16:33
ScorpKingForgeAus: so all crossover apps should run on wine as well?16:33
ForgeAusScorp not sure I thought it was the reverse16:34
ScorpKingah ok16:34
ForgeAusCrossover is Wine + extras, so all apps that work in  wine work in crossover, + a few more16:34
ForgeAus(its mostly optimized for Microsoft Office)16:34
=== _aleksanteri_ is now known as aleksanteri
ForgeAusnot sure what does and doesn't work in it from what works in wine but I'd gather wine is less compatible than crossover16:35
ScorpKingyep, that's where crossover office comes from then16:35
ForgeAusplus it's handy that it installs stuff into the kmenu windows icons and all :)16:35
BluesKajScorpKing, good point about w32codecs and kubuntu-restricted-extras...I just assumed noaXess had them installed.16:36
alinonis there an easy to speed up the scroll wheel?16:36
noaXessScorpKing, BluesKaj: will try that..16:36
ScorpKingBluesKaj: i have another saying about assumptions :P hehe16:36
ForgeAusalinon I think you can configure it in kcontrol (or system-settings)16:36
alinoni tried system settings but the scroll wheel isn't listed there16:36
ForgeAusjust up how many lines it scrolls to make it scroll quicker???16:36
alinonyes forgeaus16:37
ForgeAuswow really? hmmm sounds like an oversite to me16:37
ForgeAusI would have assumed it'd be there16:37
alinonme too ;) i checked online to confirm others have noticed it's missing too16:37
ForgeAusalinon I'm sorry I don't know where it is then16:37
alinonthis 1 line crap stinks16:37
ScorpKingalinon: the option is somewhere. the default is three lines i think16:37
alinoni'd like 6 please hehe =)16:38
ForgeAusI must confess I rarely use it16:38
ForgeAusbut I like to have it functional since it can be handy16:38
BluesKajyeah ScorpKing , I think i know what the saying is ...I think it begins with "never"  :)16:38
alinoni've spend the passed hour trying to find an answer, this was my last resort16:38
ScorpKingBluesKaj: i can pm it to you ;)16:38
ForgeAusalinon is it a version specific thing?16:39
alinonforgeaus: i'm not sure what you mean by that16:39
ForgeAuseither an earlier KDE or Kubuntu may still have it available but thats a little extreme a solution16:39
alinonforgeaus: oh yeah i dunno, the 6+ versions i used had trouble using my mouse all together heh16:40
ForgeAusI'm certain I've seen one in Edgy and probably Feisty too, as for Gutsy or the new one (That starts with H) I don't know...16:40
alinonhardy heron haha16:40
ForgeAuswhat kind of mouse you got?16:40
alinonstandard logitech wireless mouse16:41
ForgeAususb? ps2? microsoft? logiech? noname?16:41

SchuenemannI converted the chm with libchm_bin, but it doesn't look like there's a HTML with the frames16:42
ForgeAussounds like just one of those things... I don't really know how to help you16:42
ForgeAusSchuen did it have content before you converted it? lol16:42
alinonlittle things like this is what keeps linux from hitting the main stream - because even the best distro's still can't keep the simple stuff simple haha16:42
SchuenemannForgeAus, what do you mean?16:42
ForgeAusif it was an "empty" chm then of course theres going to be no (or blank) html in the frames16:43
alinonthank you much for help forgeaus16:43
ForgeAusbut it sounds more likely that the conversion failed16:43
ForgeAusI don't know much about libchm_bin16:44
SchuenemannForgeAus, I mean there isn't a file with the 2 frames, only the contents16:44
ForgeAuswhat happens if you click a contents link?16:44
Schuenemannit opens...16:45
ForgeAusisn't that waht its supposed to do?16:45
ForgeAusI'm confused16:45
ForgeAusthats how chm's normally work16:45
Schuenemannit's nice to have the indices in a frame to the left, don't you think?16:45
ForgeAusyou click an index link it shows you the corresponding content16:46
Schuenemannyou don't have any index16:46
ForgeAusSchuen yeah it'd be nicer16:46
ForgeAusbut the conversion might not be smart enough to set it up in frames16:46
Schuenemanntoo bad16:47
Schuenemannit also generated a lot of non sense files16:47
ForgeAusif you want taht it shouldn't be too difficult to make one from that HTML file16:47
SchuenemannI guess so16:47
rysiek|plguys, is there a way to input a UNICODE char using Alt + NumPad?16:47
ForgeAusjust have a HTML editor copy the contents and link each heading16:47
ForgeAusinto respective frames16:47
ForgeAusto much work tho uh?16:48
Schuenemanna program can do that16:48
ForgeAusin windows there is dunno about linux rys16:48
ForgeAusheeh Schu a chm glossary would be interesting to convert :)16:49
rysiek|plForgeAus: yeah, I know that on windoze it works16:49

As location I selected a local folder. That seemed to work. Now I want to checkout this repository into a local folder using: Subversion > Common > Checkout of a repository. This does not work. Although I've chosen the right directories for repository and working21:25

excitatorynyp4life: i know something you could try..22:47
nyp4lifesorry its not only mp3's22:48
excitatorynyp4life: open up kmix, go to the switches tab, and play with those.  Especially try toggling the various 3d mix switches.22:48
adz21caxel: yes22:48
nyp4lifevideo playback isnt as clear as in xp also..22:49
axeladz21c: great!22:49
nyp4life'switches' tab only has channel mode and input source (3 of them)22:51
nyp4lifeand 'headphone' and 'iec958' with radio buttons22:51
excitatorynyp4life: make sure everything looks correct (channels, etc), then also play around with the switches..22:52
excitatoryI had this same issue on a friend's pc, scratchy, almost degraded sound, but once we turned one of the 3d mix settings off, it was clean.22:53
nyp4lifeunder channel mode there is 6ch and 8ch.. dont really notice a difference..22:53
angelpiratehey nyp4life22:53
excitatoryyea, that probably wouldn't matter22:53
angelpiratedo you know where is the aRts programme?22:54
nyp4lifek i just unclicked the two 3D buttons from the output tab and it sounds much better22:54
nyp4lifearts program.. no i dont22:54
angelpiratedo you know where I can configure the sound/22:55
excitatoryangelpirate: kmix22:55
theoneHello - there are better channels for this but ubuntu rocks so I am here. Can anyone offer advice on selecting and moving more than one text box in OpenOffice Writer.22:55
excitatorytheone: holding control then clicking each one?  ctrl-A will select all..which might help too..but I would have to see what you're talking about to know if that would work.22:57
excitatorytheone: when you select each one, you might have to make sure you're clicking near the txt boxes' border so that the little resize/move grabbers appear and actually select the box and not the text inside.22:58
angelpiratehey  excitatory22:58
theoneexitatory - Yes - that is what I thought too -- for some reason I am having trouble getting the second box to click.22:58
angelpiratedo you know where is the configuration program of the midi/22:58
theoneexitatory-  in other words the grabber doesn't appear. The boxes are not locked. In other programs that is how I do it but I have't tried it with OpenOffice so I thought maybe there was something special.23:00
hdevalenceis there a reason why  kdialog --msgbox "`kdesu apt-get install -y inkscape`"  wouldn't work?23:00
theoneexitatory - what happens is I click one and then when pressing ctrl to click the other - it selects leaving the first one no longer selected.23:01
=== solidliquid is now known as solid_liq
theoneThe little green square boxes appear but transfer from the old box to the new one selected. Also drawing around the boxes with the select tool is not working to highlight multiilpe boxes.23:02
nyp4lifeexcitatory: were u the one helping me with the torrent issue?23:02
holahow is it possibile to share pppoe connection between clent and server23:02
mefisto__angelpirate: system settings>sound. hardware tab. you can choose your midi device (your soundcard, if it has built-in midi)23:02
excitatoryangelpirate: open up kcontrol (way better than the default System Settings), go to the Sound & Multimedia, then Sound System, then Hardware tab23:02
BluesKajhdevalence, sudo apt-get install -y inkscape , would be better in the terminal , kdesu is for run programs23:03
excitatorytheone: try shift?  i'm not really sure, i rarely use any office app23:03
excitatorynyp4life: nope23:03
hdevalenceBluesKaj: yeah, but I don't want to open a terminal -- and inept takes too long to load23:04
nyp4lifelol ok well i have a problem with torrents.. any client i use eventually kicks me off my wireless network23:04
mefisto__lol inept23:04
nyp4lifeutorrent with wine lasted longest (~10 mins)23:04
theoneexcitatory - thanks I appreciate it - I have tried and exhausted shift, alt etc. before coming here. I appreciate your effort.23:05
theoneCan you offer a channel maybe that I might find someone who uses this?23:05
JunkieHm.... I ran the distro updater and it spent 48 minutes downloading the files and now the windows just disappeared...23:05
bigredHello. I am doing a version upgrade from 7.04 to 7.10. It is stuck configuring wvdial on the installation phase. It sounds like its a dial-up tool, in which case I do not need it. The error is that it "Failed to open device". Is there a way to skip the current step in the install terminal?23:05
BluesKajhdevalence, the run program box is exactly that to run apps aftert installation, not to install them.23:06
hdevalenceBluesKaj: yeah, but I want to run the 'apt-get' program which is already installed23:06
JunkieIs the updater still running in the background or something?23:07
bigredMe? Yes23:07
nyp4lifeanybody know why my torrent client kicks me off my wireless network?23:07
Junkiebigred: no, i was refering to my question :P23:08
JunkieI don't see a window for the updater :|23:08
ere4siyou might have too many peers nyp4life23:08
BluesKajhdevalence, apt-get is designed to run in the konsole /terminal , not the run box23:08
hdevalenceyeah, but if I push it hard enough, I could probably get it to work23:09
mefisto__Junkie: I got the same thing when I upgraded to gutsy. try "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"23:09
nyp4lifek ill try lowering the global23:09
BluesKajhdevalence, afaik that command in the run box will open adept23:10
excitatoryok, well, I have a question23:11
mohanadhey,,, how u doin?, I am a bignner at linux (kubunto), I have some problem with sound, I have SB 5.1 the ASLA can identrify  but nothing plays exept this noise, can u help me?23:12
mohanadany one can help?23:12
Junkiekubunto :D23:13
excitatorymohanad: open up kmix and make sure everything looks good (channels, correct output settings, etc)  also, in the switches tab, try turning off the 3D control and 3D mix options23:13
mohanadok I will now try it, thanks23:14
BluesKajmohanad, try this in the terminal , it's aspeaker test : speaker-test -c2 -Dplughw:023:15
axeladz21c: Thank you!23:18
FaiDillinGerhi there, anyone knows how to get numlock on when X starts (not when KDE starts, when X starts, at the login manager)23:19
ubotuTo enable Number Lock by default, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NumLock23:20
Dr_WillisI see that asked a lot.. and ive got NO idea why people always want the numlock on.23:20
thornsHey everyone23:21
BluesKajprolly have numbers in the login pw23:21
Dr_Willisso they got one hand on the letter keys. and move the other hand to the numpad just for a few #s? Seems a bit - slow. :)23:22
excitatoryDr_Willis: well, for one, I always use the numpad when i input numbers.. (when i learned to type, i struggled with learning how to hit the number keys above the letters)23:22
DiceyDaysxCan someone tell me how do I configure strigi of kde4? Can I even configure it? Thanks23:22
thornsI want to test Hardy. I've just installed Alpha 4. Now I want to test KDE4. I go about by first installing kde4-core. That shows a rather big dependancy error list. Any ideas?23:22
Dr_Williscould be i type mor eleft handed theni do right. :) i rarely use the numpad. other then its enter key every so often23:22
excitatoryDiceyDaysx: in konq, strigi:/configure23:23
Dr_Willisthorns,  i would not mess with kde4 at this time.   - If you want to toy with it - check out a kde4 live cd.23:23
BluesKaj!hardy | thorns23:23
ubotuthorns: Hardy Heron is the code name for the next release of Ubuntu (8.04-LTS), due April 2008 - For more info, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardyHeron - CONSIDER IT TO BE PRE BETA (ALPHA) SOFTWARE - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+1, NOT #ubuntu23:23
thornsNo, I really would like to, Dr_Willis.23:23
nyp4lifehow do i erase a dvd-rw?23:23
FaiDillinGerDr_Willis: as for me it is because my password contains lots of numbers and i sometimes forget to press numlock, so that makes me type nothing instead of my actual pasword23:23
thornsBluesKaj: Ok, sure.23:23
BluesKajnyp4life, , just let the next burn overwrite it23:23
DiceyDaysxexcitatory: It says protocal not supported.23:24
nyp4lifei tried that with k3b.. it said write successful but the disc shows the old files23:24
Dr_Willisthorns,  well kde 4 has its own channel :) and #ubuntu+1 for hardy23:24
excitatoryDiceyDaysx: are you sure you spelled strigi:/ correctly?23:24
BluesKajmohanad, ?23:24
mohanadBluesKaj, I have two sound card Via and SB 5.1 how can I choose SB 5.1 as the default card23:25
DiceyDaysxexcitatory: copied and pasted it23:25
excitatoryis it installed?23:25
BluesKajmohanad,in the terminal :  asoundconf set-default-card "name of soundcard"23:25
DiceyDaysxexcitatory: It is Find Files/Folders KDE4 in raptor right?23:26
excitatoryDiceyDaysx: what does strigi:/status say  (remember, do this in konq)23:26
DiceyDaysxor is it strigi-client. I seem not to have that installed23:26
excitatorystrigi is installed by default in gutsy23:27
mohanadBluesKaj, how can I know the correct name of the card?23:27
mefisto__mohanad: asoundconf list23:27
DiceyDaysxI installed kde4-core. I usually use gnome, but am trying out kde4.23:27
nyp4lifek3b didn't overwrite the old files on DVD-RW23:27
BluesKajmohanad, cat /proc/asound/cards23:27
DiceyDaysxdownloaded strigi client, but no difference.23:28
nyp4lifecan i use gnome apps in kde?23:28
excitatoryDiceyDaysx: well, if you're a gnome user, you're much better off using the kde4 livecd.. you might have dependency problems, but it's hard to say.  Also, you're really not missing much, kde 4.0 is mostly a framework release.. it's still pretty ugly.. 4.1+ will be much nicer..23:29
Dr_Willisnyp4life,  yes.. and visa-versa23:29
Dr_Willisnyp4life,  they all run on top of X. - you might have some quirks - depending on the app.23:29
ubotuTo disable ipv6 read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WebBrowsingSlowIPv6IPv423:29
kristjan_hi "ubuntu.com" doesn't load - why?23:30
DiceyDaysxI like it well enough. Got things working pretty well, other than my icons on the desktop looking weird.23:30
DiceyDaysxBut no prob, I'll just forget about it. What about dragonplayer. I installed that and am wondering how do I run that.23:30
mohanadBluesKaj, Thanks man, everything is working properly, ur the BEST23:31
BluesKajmohanad, YW , glad to help :)23:33
mefisto__anyone know what sets screen resolution for kdm?23:34
excitatorymefisto__: usually your xorg.conf file23:35
mefisto__excitatory: it is supposed to, but doesn't23:35
XceIIhow do i get my machine graphics back to vessa so i can see the screen?23:36
BluesKajxcell , sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg23:37
XceIIwill that put it back?23:37
BluesKajyou will have the option23:38
XceIInice, thank you.23:38
XceIIill be back, hopefully23:39
mefisto__ sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg only (re)creates xorg.conf, right?23:39
excitatorysudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg23:39
StrangeworkI am attempting to have Kubuntu load up Compiz-Fusion and the Avant-Window-Navigator as soon as I bootup, the problem is, the only way I know how to do this is by creating a bash script in ~/.kde/Autostart. This generates some problems because this sometimes prevents the power manager from appearing in the taskbar. Is there an alternative to this?23:40
mefisto__can I reconfig xserver, without changing xorg.conf?23:40
Dr_Willismefisto__,  xorg.conf is what holds all the xserver configs....23:42
Dr_Willismefisto__,  what are you want ing to change exactly?23:42
BluesKajmefisto__, reconfiguring it will change some parameters depending on the options you choose23:42
excitatoryStrangework: this isn't perfect, but try appending an & to your compiz command, make a new line, sleep 5&, new line, dcop kicker kicker restart23:43
mefisto__Dr_Willis: kdm is always 1024x768, even if I only have 1280x1024 in xorg.conf23:43
Dr_WillisStrangework,  put a delay in the script - so the powermanager has time to startup?23:43
mefisto__Dr_Willis: if I log out after startup, kdm is at the correct 1280x1024, but on first startup it's 1024x76823:45
Dr_WillisI thouhg i saw a checkbox or some setting tool in kde to set a specific res as the default for the system. But i dont have the problem. So not sure if thats a fix or not23:45
excitatorymefisto__: you know.. my kdm was doing that for a while.  I think i just commented out the modeline in the xorg.conf and it fixed it.23:51
mefisto__excitatory: so you have no modelines?23:51
excitatoryno, they've been pretty useless for a while, unless you're using certain configurations with open drivers23:52
excitatoryargh, whenever a kernel is updated, it always sets my grub config to boot from (hd1,0) and not (hd0,0) like it should be.. (i can manually fix it, but i have to do this after every kernel update..)23:57
BluesKajmefisto__, have you tried the admin mode in system settings/monitor & display/resolution ?23:58
