Dr_williswork time for me.. byee02:56
KrayzeeKrystalI've tried searching for it and it won't come up... and when I go to Edit Software Sources, Adept Installer has Universe selected.02:56
kubunteroKrayzeeKrystal: What version of Kubuntu are you using?02:58
DragnslcrKrayzeeKrystal- it should be Settings -> Touch Pad if you're using Adept Installer02:58
DragnslcrKrayzeeKrystal- you can also try Adept Manager and search for ksynaptics02:58
KrayzeeKrystalI'm using 7.10.02:59
KrayzeeKrystalDrag> That's what I'm trying to do....02:59
KrayzeeKrystaler... what installer.  ugh02:59
greeneghi KrayzeeKrystal02:59
greenegso you''re having issues finding the app you're looking for in adept_manager?03:00
KrayzeeKrystalIs manager different than installer??03:00
greenegadept_manager is the main way to search the package list.03:01
NickPrestaWould anyone who uses QT-Designer like to help me for one minute?03:01
greenegadept_installer will only show a select set of packages03:01
kubunteroKrayzeeKrystal: Press Alt+Space -> type adept -> press enter03:01
MrCloudI need help with updating Kubuntu.  Can anyone help?  I installed 3 times.03:01
kubunteroMrCloud: What kind of update?03:02
=== ssssssssssssssss is now known as fiestas
KrayzeeKrystalOoooh... that has a lot more options...03:02
MrCloudWhen I try to update, it goes up til it says installing updates, then stops with an error about breaking packages or something, then says there is a version update, then all goes south.03:02
greenegKrayzeeKrystal: yes03:02
KrayzeeKrystalwoot... found it, thanks03:03
MrCloudThis is a fresh install.03:03
MrCloudI didn't do updates this time.03:03
greenegit's my preferred way to install stuff on Kubuntu at work03:03
=== fiestas is now known as afiestas
MrCloudNot without coming here first to get help.03:03
greenegKrayzeeKrystal: np :)03:03
ubotukatapult is the new application launcher for KDE, to be used with applications, bookmarks, and Amarok playlists. Once you have installed, hit Alt+f2 -> katapult, then hit Alt+Space, and type what you want.03:03
* kubuntero hugs alt+Space 03:03
KrayzeeKrystalOne of my coworkers has been going on about katapult...03:04
MrCloudThere is an icon by the clock that says there is updates available.03:04
kubunteroKrayzeeKrystal: It's nice could be better but insanely addictive03:04
KrayzeeKrystalI'm still not to sure 'bout it03:04
MrCloud153 updated packages available.03:04
kubunteroMrCloud: Do you have adept open ?03:04
KrayzeeKrystalBut I suppose it'll likely grow on me03:04
kubunteroMrCloud: Good Click the little orange Box03:05
MrCloudI haven't done nothing but come here after installing03:05
greenegKrayzeeKrystal: think of katapult like Quicksilver on Mac OS X, or QuickLaunch on Windows03:05
MrCloudLoaded Adept Updater03:05
KrayzeeKrystalNeither of which I've used. ;)03:05
greenegKrayzeeKrystal: ah03:05
MrCloudWelcome to Adept Updater03:05
greenegthey simplify launching stuff sooo much03:06
KrayzeeKrystalhmmm... afk03:06
greenegsince the menu can be a pain to navigate at times :P03:06
kubunteroMrCloud: It's wizard. Pretty easy to follow after that03:06
MrCloudI do follow that, but there is where the problem is.  After doing all the downloading, it starts the install and crashes with an error, then it says there is a version update.03:07
kubunteroMrCloud: Ah Hmm03:07
MrCloudWhen I tell it okay on the version update it crashes saying the packager is already running.03:07
kubuntero!adept crash fix03:07
ubotuIf an APT front-end crashed and your database is locked, try this in a !terminal: « sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a »03:07
kubunteroMrCloud: ^^^03:08
MrCloudOKay I will try that when it crashes.03:08
MrCloudJust for your info, I installed from a Kubuntu Linux 7.10 DVD that I downloaded and did a CD check before installing.03:10
kubunteroMrCloud: I have no doubt the install was fine. Just that installing packages is a tricky magic and installing a whole bunch at one time is feat of balance many would faint at03:11
Daisuke_Idoyou installed 7.1003:11
Daisuke_Idowhy are you doing a version upgrade?03:12
Daisuke_Idojust saying03:12
kubunteroDaisuke_Ido: Update not upgrade03:12
Daisuke_Idostill a version update03:12
Daisuke_Idoit's apparently either the existing adept bug, or it's trying to go to hardy03:12
MrCloudAfter the update, it tells me there is a version upgrade available.03:12
Daisuke_Idoignore it either way.03:12
kubunteroDaisuke_Ido: Nope update. There is a bug in the updated Adept package that sasythere is an upgrade03:12
kubuntero Really there isn't03:12
MrCloudSo there is no version upgrade?03:13
Daisuke_Idojust to hardy03:13
MrCloudWhy is it telling me there is?03:13
Daisuke_Idoand you don't want to do that yet03:13
Daisuke_Idonot for a couple months at least03:13
MrCloudI am new to this stuff.03:13
Daisuke_Idono worries03:13
MrCloudI am used to Windows 9x.  lol03:13
kubunteroMrCloud: Do you still have the orange box in the tray saying you have updates?03:13
kubunteroMrCloud: Welcome :)03:14
MrCloudYes, and its downloading updates while I chat.03:14
evilbugi need someone to help me set up wireless on my 2g macbook pro.03:14

evilbugi already installed everything using a tutorial,it's just that when i try to connect it'll ask me for the network key a couple of times and then doesn't connect at all.03:16
evilbugit actually showed the signal bars for a little while (which i assume meant it connected) but the internet still would not work.03:17
MrCloudMight actually work this time03:17
geniiax1s: I generally like the xine backend over the gstreamer one. For instance you can have amarok-gstreamer or amarok-xine, I find xine backend better03:17

KrayzeeKrystalYes, well.  Mommy's new dev box.  Mommy's.03:21
MrCloudThere was an error commiting changes. Possibly there was a problem downloading some packages or the commit would break packages.03:21
MrCloud60% complete03:21
ax1sgenii: This is happening on 2 gutsy machines.. but it works fine on my fiesty machine03:21
MrCloudWhat do I do now?03:21
kubunteroDaisuke_Ido: dpkg -f install ?03:21
kubunteroMrCloud: is it closed ?03:21
geniiax1s: Hmmm. No other immediate ideas come to mind then03:21
kubunteroor it crashed ?03:21
MrCloudNo, I left it alone when the error occured.03:21
MrCloudDo I click on okay?03:22
Daisuke_Idokubuntero: couldn't hurt03:22
KrayzeeKrystalHrm... now to find ksynaptics...  I believe I installed it....03:22
kubunteroMrCloud: Sure03:22
MrCloudIt said Complete, now says there is a new distribution version is available03:23
MrCloudClick next if you want to upgrade now03:23
ax1sgenii: does dvdnav demuxer warning: cannot get next block give you any hint?03:23
MrCloudI clicked on quit.03:23
greenegKrayzeeKrystal: look in the System Settings app found in the kmenu03:23
geniiax1s: offhand looks like perhaps the audio stream has a bad sector or so03:24
ax1sgenii: That is exactly what i am *feeling03:24
ax1sgenii: but it works in my laptop with feisty and on  a regular dvd player03:24
ax1scould it be my drive?03:24
ax1si don't see how03:24
kubunteroMrCloud: open  a konsole and type sudo dpkg -f install03:24
KrayzeeKrystalCan't find it... I can't katapult to it either...  and if I try to search on the System Settings window it doesn't find anything03:25
geniiax1s: Perhaps. The Mitsumi ones in particular are bad that way03:25
KrayzeeKrystalBut Adept manager says it's installed03:25
ax1sgenii: I have a benQ in here.. but wow that is odd03:25
ax1sgenii: thx for your help too btw03:25
geniiax1s: PErhaps try an external usb one on same box03:25

kubunteroKrayzeeKrystal: try syndock03:27

MrCloudIts done.03:27
MrCloud sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a03:27
MrCloudI did that and it worked03:27
kubunteroAh right03:28
greeneghrm, can you open kcontrol then? it should be in there under Peripherals iirc03:28

geniikubuntero: yes03:29
MrCloudLets see if add/remove will work now.03:29
MrCloudI have a quick question.  Can I install RPM files in Kubuntu?03:29
ubotuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous)03:29
geniiax1s: I think you got a bum disc then that will only play on better drives with eror correction03:30
kubunteroMrCloud: Always best to check if you can get it from the repo03:30
MrCloudWell, so much for that idea.  I appreciate it.03:30
MrCloudThe program I want to use is vmware workstation.03:30
KrayzeeKrystalKu> syndock, hmm?  ok.03:30
ax1sgenii:  brand new 13 disc set, happens on each disc03:30
MrCloudvirtual box is a mess.03:30
ax1sgenii: brand new from chapters/indgo03:30
ax1sgenii: i think you are half right03:30
ax1sgenii: maybe not bum disc but bum new method of control03:31
ubotuVMWare Player is in Ubuntu's !Multiverse repository (package "vmware-player", not available for Gutsy, only Feisty and Edgy), and http://www.easyvmx.com/easyvmx.shtml can create VMs for it. Instructions can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VMware - See also !virtualizers03:31
geniiax1s: Hmm. Might be some audio codec then03:31

Daisuke_Idonot workstation you can't.03:31
Daisuke_Idoplayer and server, yes03:31

karllenzati card is the visiontek x155004:57
Oloughlin75karllenz, i dont think any OS supports two cards, one from ati and the other nvidia04:57
karllenzwell even if i just have the ati card in my pc same thing happens04:58
intelikeymay i say that it's     no OS has drivers that are compatable for both nv and ati togather04:58
Oloughlin75karllenz, you need to modify the xorg.conf04:58
intelikeyunless you want to use the vesa04:58
karllenzwell i cant even get into the os to do that04:58
karllenzand idk how to do it at the comandline level04:59
intelikeysure you can04:59
intelikeysudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg04:59
karllenzok then it should be able to use my ati card04:59
karllenzits ust the one comande05:00
intelikeyif it's installed when you do that and you select the driver for it.      but i still think i would use the vesa driver until you get setteled which card is going to be in there05:00
Oloughlin75karllenz, itll walk you through a bunch of prompts05:00
karllenzim sry still trying to learn linux05:00
karllenzid really like the ati card fully functional05:01

abcdIs it worth to upgrade to KDE 3.5.9 - They say: "Security and other updates may not be applied promptly." What do you folks think?10:58
apparleI don't understand one thing> Why are they developing KDE 3.5.9 when 4.0 is here11:00
SlimeyPeteapparle: 3.5.9 is a mainenance release11:01
SlimeyPeteit mainly fixes bugs, like a service pack for Windows11:01
apparleSlimeyPete: and what does a maintainance release mean11:02
apparleWhich one is better Koffice or Open Offce11:02
SlimeyPeteapparle: it means they don't develop major new features, but they do fix existing bugs or improve the efficiency of the code11:02
SlimeyPeteapparle: most projects do this (e.g. the Linux 2.4 kernel was/is maintained for ages after 2.6 came out)11:03
emilsedghapparle: OpenOffice is has more features atm.koffice is better from a developer point of view11:04
apparleSlimeyPete: Thanks for the info11:04
SlimeyPetekoffice tends to be faster11:04
emilsedghs/is/Null :P11:04
SlimeyPeteI prefer it, but I don't need advanced features in a word processor11:04
apparlestdin: are you there11:05
abcdIs there any script, or patch or whatever which fixes big fonts in a taskbar, missing icons and things like these in KDE 4.0.1 ?11:08

SlimeyPeteorbitize: did you back up your xorg.conf first? (If you used a graphical utility to make the change, it probably did this for you)11:30
orbitizeI used the system settings to change the screen settings11:31
orbitizedoes that make a backup?11:32
SlimeyPetehrm... probably ;) If it did, the backup would be called something like /etc/X11/xorg.conf.011:32
orbitizeah, okay, I will take a look now11:33
orbitizeseems there is one called xorg.conf.111:33
orbitizeI'll try copying it over the other one11:33
SlimeyPeteyeah, try that11:33

|TroubleMaker|anybody use a brother hl 2140? my hl1040 has bit the dust and these are still on the shelf and reasonably priced. I see on the brother website that they have a driver for it in .rpm but dont see a .deb and do not see any meantion of it on the ubuntu wiki.12:00
coggz|TroubleMaker|: could you use alien to convert it12:01
ubotuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous)12:01

coggz|TroubleMaker|: hmm, try the conversion and if it works then go and buy it! How did you have your last one working?12:02

NthDegreepeto_: good find, but that one is for GNOME =]14:03
NthDegreeyou're quite right when you say it's for Ubuntu rather than Kubuntu14:04
peto_nthdegree so can i install that kooldock?14:04
NthDegreeyeps it's made for KDE and looks a bit like the OS X one14:04
nosrednaekimkool dock is buggy.... I reccomend AWN, even though its heavily gnome based.14:05
peto_so what do i have to do now???14:05
paulothen try ./configure.ac14:06
paulothen sudo makefile.am14:06

nosrednaekimNthDegree » alt+f2 may be easier ;)14:11
pauloistvan what is the model of your Intel graphics card14:11
NthDegreeDr_willis: it will burn it but Nero Linux will he either needs a cuesheet or will need to know sector sizes etc. for a raw burn14:11
Dr_willisnado,  best bet if yoyu want to play a game with wine. is to track down a 'of debateable legality' no-cd-crack for the game.14:11
paulothe solution may already be in the repository!14:11
peto_nthdegree ok, its running and how to set up it now?14:12
NthDegreemove your pointer to the bottom of the screen14:12
Dr_willisconverting to .iso and burning - will lose the special copy-protection info most likely14:12
nadoDr_willis: at first i should be able to access the data on the disk and that's my problem14:12
NthDegreeand you have an OS X-like dock14:12
NthDegreeright click it when it appears to edit items on it14:12
BluesKajHowdy folks  :-)14:12
Dr_willisnado,  just converting to .iso should let you mount/install the game. Running it - will be another story. :) if it in fact does have copy protection14:13
istvanx3100 or gm96514:13
peto_nthdegree it still hiding, can i turn it off14:14
nadoDr_willis: yeah I'm trying to find a way to convert it right now14:14

trappistplodder: sounds right.  I have 451 here, but that probably just means I have a few more packages installed than you16:14
trappistBluesKaj: do you also have a stuck acroread process?16:15

tekteenthe apache webserver does that16:58
HTML-insaneunagi (about your previous problem): Try using -r, and -f (--force). If that doesn't work, I'm stumped.16:59
tekteenI guess you need to download php16:59
tekteenthen use it to create a html file16:59
prince_jammysbassem: you need to install php and configure it so that php files get parsed and executed16:59
tekteenthen display iy16:59
kaminixnosrednaekim: And if I change from automatic to ext3, it freaks out and ask me "'' does not seem to be a device and the option 'bind' has not been specified in the "Advanced" page."17:00
nosrednaekimkaminix » is the USB stick ext3?17:00
flipstarkaminix: may you could try mounting without the kde mount manager and see what happens17:00
bassemwill give it a try17:00
kaminixNot a USB-stick, USB-HDD, but yeah... it's ext3.17:00
kaminixflipstar: It mounts fine if I turn them on/off inside KDE.17:01
flipstarbut wrong device you said..maybe its the kde mount manager i mentioned ..17:02
kaminixNo, it's the KDE Mount Manager thingie in System Setting which mounts it wrong when I try to automatize it. If I just shut them on and off they'll mount fine.17:03
unagimy lord thats annoying -r -f still returns that17:03
bassemprince_jammys: how can i install php for kubuntu ?17:04
ubotuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)17:04
prince_jammysbassem: the only way i know is to install it in conjunction with apache.  the above link directs you.   i don't know how to install it on its own17:05
HTML-insaneunagi: You've stumped my basic knowledge -.-17:06
prince_jammysbassem: you would then be running a server which would parse any php files that are stored in /var/www.  if you then browse to http://localhost,  you can view the html output of the files.17:06
prince_jammysbassem: if you do this, make sure you are only serving to localhost, unless you are serving your php on a network17:07

mhollisjrwell I'm new to the distro and never split off home before this install, so I never paid that much attention to what all goes there, do you see me running into any problems with a split like that?18:11
tekteenmhollisjr: I would lower it to 20GB at most18:11
rickestmhollisjr: do you really even need to split it up? on work machines with AIX and SunOS that will last for 8-10 years that makes sense but for home distros I'm not sure it's worth the trouble18:11

huntekeyikers, okay thanks20:51

arrrghhhbertvdp, that's a glitch in adept.  once you update adept, it'll go away.20:55

Lynouredewet_: it shows wine was already installed on your system21:14
Lynouredewet_: oh, oops, not.21:14

mhollisjryou added the repo dewet_?21:14
AndreSTChow do i change directory on my local machine while connected to a remote machine, by ftp?21:14

AndreSTCrickest is it? im new to this stuff =P21:16
coggzaree you guys on there?21:16
nosrednaekimsome are21:16
rickestAndreSTC: yeah, scp/sftp has pretty much replaced rpc, telnet, and ftp21:16
Lynourecoggz: go see?21:16
mhollisjrwhat is the intended difference between /media and /mnt?21:17
mhollisjror is /mnt just getting phased out?21:17
Sybuxnone, it's just 2 different folder name21:18
rickestAndreSTC: if you're on a personal LAN w/o port forwarding it's probably ok but anywhere else the others are preferred (plus rsync or 'rsync -e ssh')21:18
dewet_Lynoure_ /etc/apt/sources.list - Not Working21:18

AndreSTCrickest is there somewhere i can read about sftp?21:19
rickestAndreSTC: hmm, wait one21:19
mhollisjris there a program for simulating a boot on a device?21:20
mhollisjrlike if I wanted to test booting off my USB stick without rebooting 25 times, since I probably need to make adjustments?21:20
Lynouredewet_: open it, then paste:   kate /etc/apt/sources.list21:20
rickestAndreSTC: I thought I had a specific intro marked but I guess not. google 'introduction ssh', should find something decent there21:21
AndreSTC[rickest]: ok21:21
SybuxDoes any1 know how to redirect mail flagged as spam from spamassassin to a folder in maildir ?21:21
AndreSTCrickest soh sftp and ssh are pretty much same thing?21:21
rickestAndreSTC: fwiw, the key fingerprint is ok, helps prevent man-in-the-middle attacks, etc. most primers will talk some about that21:21
rickestAndreSTC: sftp is just an ftp-like interface that works over ssh, yes. once you switch, though, most just use rsync, scp, or sshfs for persistent mounts if needed21:22

AndreSTC[rickest]: ok..i found this one also, http://polydistortion.net/doc/ssh.html21:26

rickestOloughlin75: I think I read your question wrong, sorry. Thought you wanted to change the menu, not the computer next to it21:35
nosrednaekimjason » you could point a shortcut to it and tell the shortcut to run a terminal.21:36

trappistafaik the only change in the new one is a one-line fix to a very nasty security hole22:01
flipstarwhats the problem during boot ?22:01
creepsany idea what is stopping me being able to view theese files22:01

biossis there any other way to get them>?22:01
trappistcreeps: how are you trying to view them, and what happens when you try.22:01
trappistbioss: apt does checksums before installing packages, so a broken download should never cause this problem22:02

creepsand enable mountable22:02
creepsi did and i can look in files there but not anywhere else22:03
trappistbioss: maybe check /boot/grub/menu.lst and see if the new kernel has the same options as the working kernel22:03
trappistbioss: also..... what happens when you boot to the new kernel22:03

trappistbioss: let me back up - did you happen to install, say, nvidia drivers without using apt-get? like using envy or from nvidia.com?22:04
biosswhen it starts to boot the computer gfrub starts and everithin seems to be working when grub finishes it stays black22:05

mhollisjrspeaking of kernel22:06
trappistand let this be a lesson to you about stepping outside the package manager :)22:06
mhollisjrare there any optimizations that I can do such as pre-emptive and such22:06
trappistbioss: reset to X?  X is set to use the nvidia drivers, which don't work because they're built against the old kernel.  you need new drivers for your new kernel.22:07
creepsi get this message if i try to view22:07
creepsYou do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "disks-conf-hdc1".22:07
biossbut i dont to even the login screen?22:07
flipstartrappist: the nvidia drivers need to be build after every kernel update ?22:07
trappistmhollisjr: with gutsy, I don't think there are any optimizations you can do to make a noticeable difference22:07
mhollisjr-nod- so the ideal settings would already be compiled by default?22:08
trappistflipstar: only if you're using the ones from nvidia.com - if you stick with the package manager, you'll get new drivers from the repo via the magic of dependencies22:08
ubuntudoes a swap partition have to be right next to the ext3 partition22:08
flipstarkay thx trappist22:08
trappistmhollisjr: not ideal for you, but ideal for most users collectively.  you could change some things to improve performance in some areas, but you'd probably never notice the difference, and you'd cause yourself some headaches.22:09
biossok i will try to download the new kernel but is not always that the grub works to getting to the old to boot the system22:09
fevelanyone usnig the new kde4??22:09
mhollisjrwell I remember when I used pclinuxos I did make a change to some of the pre-emptive settings, though I forget what exactly I changed, I'd have to look at it, and I did get a noticable performance boost22:10
fevelbetter yet...should I??22:10
trappistmhollisjr: in previous releases they had a low-latency kernel in universe, which helped with some i/o inefficiencies caused by power-saving optimizations for laptops, but the problems that caused it seem to be gone, so there's no more low-latency kernel22:10
nosrednaekimfevel » yes, Iam22:10
mhollisjrtrappist: ok good deal, thanks for the headsup22:10
* creeps pulls his hair out strand by strand22:11
mhollisjrone more question, if the CD is doing an integrity check there's no harm in interrupting it correct?22:11
trappistmhollisjr: preemptive doesn't have a real effect on performance, only an apparent one, because for example i/o operations can be preempted to make sure the mouse cursor moves smoothly.  I think you're currently running a preemptible kernel, but I'd have to check22:11
creepsi need a coffee22:11
trappistmhollisjr: right, it's just checking the cd itself against the md5sum of the image22:11

nosrednaekimDaisuke_Ido » from what I heard... it was mostly the inclusion of the enterprise PIM (which Kubuntu already had)22:15
hydrogenI no longer use kde3.. so couldn't tell you22:15
creepsright action time again22:15
ubuntuare the partition numbers in the installationa nd the numbers in qtparted the same numbers?22:17
coggzis gnome good or bad?22:17
nosrednaekimubuntu» yes22:17
trappistcoggz: bad!  all bad!22:17
ahmadhello, i cant connect to internet using the wireless network, however at Knetwork manager, it detected a wirelssnetwork. it appears that the device is ra0, subnetmask is, broadcast is,, hidden-no, bandwith is 62 mb/s, signal strentgh is 81, frequency is 2.412, device is inactive, network is not active. can you help me fix this problem?22:17
ubotugnome is a project that provides two things: The GNOME desktop environment, an intuitive and attractive desktop for end-users, users, and the GNOME development platform, an extensive framework for building applications that integrate into the rest of the desktop.22:17
flipstari didnt noticed a change for 3.5.9 but i didnt payd attention for that22:17
trappistcoggz: seriously, try kde and gnome and decide which you prefer.22:17
ubuntunosrednaekim: im glad i didnt install then because it was about to wipe out my winodws installation22:17
ubuntunosrednaekim: any idea why im not able to format this unallocated partition?22:18
rakani can't get my repo database up to date as i was told here before22:18
rakanwhat should i do in order to get the repo?22:19
Daisuke_Idoubuntu - qtparted has done that to me on several occasions, especially after performing another action22:19
fevelanyone solve the problems on kde4??22:19
Daisuke_Ido!gparted | rakan22:19
uboturakan: GParted is a !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted-livecd.tuxfamily.org/22:19
Daisuke_Idowrong user22:19
ubuntuthe mount poinbt for a new isntall should be / right?22:20
Daisuke_Idorakan: don't partition anything22:20
Oloughlin75fevel: what problems/22:20
nosrednaekimfevel» what problems?22:20
rakandaisuke_ldo: i noticed it has nothing to do with what i wanted :D22:21
fevelmy specific one ...is that the hotkeys on my hp pavillion notebook doesnt work on it, although it works on 3 and gnome (volume control key, and pause)22:21
fevelI see other problems like every bootup my wallpaper dissapears22:22
fevelmaybe I installed it incorectly22:22
fevelhoq can I see the version?22:22
fevelim really not used to kde and im trying to make the switch22:22
ubuntudoes kubuntu automatically add in a swap?22:23
rickestubuntu: yes, if you let it autopartition22:23
rickestubuntu: during install, I presume you mean22:23
Daisuke_Idomight as well install xubuntu-desktop as well :D22:23
ubuntuits telling me if i do not go back to the partitioning menu and assign a swap partition the installation will continue without swap space22:24
fevelI didnt add any repositories, I just gave it a sudo aptitude install kde4-core22:24
fevelit seemed to go fine22:24
rickestfevel: try 'kcontrol' then look in Help->About KDE22:24
nosrednaekimubuntu» you need to have a swap partition... at least its reccomended22:24
rickestfevel: or simply the opening screen of kcontrol22:24
ubuntunosrednaekim: ive never had to do it manually before22:25
rickestubuntu: I don't know. the last one I did I let it do everything and it created swap22:25
fevelLOL it says kde 3,5,8 although I know its 422:25
ubuntuhow big of a swap partition do i need?22:25
fevelbecause of oxygen and stuff22:25
ubotuswap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info22:25
rickestbefore I've always set it up myself so I only have one experience of letting it handle it and it did22:25
rickestfevel: hehe, pre-release22:25
nosrednaekimfevel» you need to log out and log into kde422:25
fevelI am22:26
fevelI logged into kde 422:26
nosrednaekimfevel» and if its a kde3 app, it will still say 3.5.822:26
feveland I know its that22:26
rickestfevel: perhaps the package manager (synaptic, adept_manager, et al) will tell you22:26
Daisuke_Idoapt-cache policy kde4-core22:26
ubuntuhow big is the default swap partition22:26
Oloughlin75ubuntu: there is no default size22:27
fevelit says 3.2gutsy22:27
Daisuke_Idodepends on ram22:27
ubuntui have 1 gig22:27
ubuntuhow big should i make it22:27
Oloughlin75ubuntu: id make it 1 gig, but thats just me :/22:27
creepshello again22:27
Daisuke_Idothen i would go with a 1.5 or 2gb swap22:27
fevelshould I add a repository to sources? if so can anyone tell me?22:27
ubuntuok cool22:27
Daisuke_Idoif you have the space to spare, it can't hurt22:27
nosrednaekimubuntu» 1.5gigs22:28
rickestsurprisingly, it made my swap 6GB when I let it do it itself22:28
Oloughlin75nosrednaekim: he means for swap22:28
nosrednaekimOloughlin75» 1.5times the ram is reccomended for suspend/hibernate purposes22:28
ubuntuswap doesnt need a mount point right?22:28
nosrednaekimubuntu» nope22:28
Daisuke_Idoso much to install -_-22:29
Daisuke_Idoi might run out of hard drive space22:29
* Daisuke_Ido giggles like a demon-possessed schoolgirl22:29
ubuntuok this still says partition #4 and #222:29
