mkquistwell if it works on live cd then it should work on hd install... so somethings screwed up in the xorg.conf i would think00:04
mkquistPRODIM: try sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg but pick vesa or vga and see if you screen works... even at a lower resolution00:05
PRODIMok00:06
mkquistPRODIM: you can always put it back if it doesnt help =p00:06

ubotuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.00:09

tekteenK`zan: #ubuntu is for server and desktop00:19
stansmith!ubuntu-server | K`zan00:19
ubotuK`zan: Ubuntu Server Edition is a release of Ubuntu designed especially for server environments, including a server-specific !kernel and no !GUI. The install CD contains many server applications. Current !LTS version is 6.06. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ServerFaq/ - The #ubuntu-server channel provides specific support00:19

stansmiththats how apache got its name you know00:21
stansmithit was "a patchy" web server00:21
mrunagi i dunno much about apache00:21
deuryteOloughlin75: i found it in add/remove  it was to enhanvce and give firewall more options, which i removed, the other wasthis "  Pnscan is a multi threaded port scanner that can scan a large network very quickly. If does not have all the features that nmap have but is much faster."//  which i am unable to access or see.00:21
Oloughlin75!firewall | deuryte00:22
ubotudeuryte: Ubuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).00:22
stansmithhey guys, im having trouble running xeyes00:22
mrunagiam i the only one that doesnt worry about firewalls?00:22
Oloughlin75deuryte, use IPTables and I would remove al lblocked ports/IPs00:22
stansmithi dont, but i prob should00:22
mrunagieh00:22
deuryteOloughlin75:  i have firestarter already but thought gaurdog would help even more, this is what it said.........Guarddog is a firewall configuration utility for KDE. It is aimed at two groups of users: novice to intermediate users who are not experts in TCP/IP networking and security, and those users who don't want the hassle of dealing with cryptic shell scripts and ipchains/iptables parameters.00:23

feierfoxhmm, when i have installed the *buntu, i will never see this laptop again00:42
feierfoxand the owner isn interessted into it00:42
feierfoxso i think LTS would be much improtant00:43
tekteenfeierfox: I had the same issue00:43

remedialjoeso did you just not update/install nvidia driver?02:05
remedialjoeare you using nvidia-glx as well?02:05
panfistfor zip archives, if i right click on them i have an option to extract. that option is not available for rar files even though i have installed support for rars and they work fine in ark02:05
remedialjoepanfist install rar/unrar02:06
remedialjoeand it will work from GUI...    type sudo apt-get install rar02:06
remedialjoeor search your add/remove for it02:06
panfistso should i uninstall unrar02:07
remedialjoeoh you installed unrar.. i thought that would have worked.. yah you might as well.. and see if the package rar works02:07
panfistnot there02:07
panfisti just installed rar and the context menu entry is still not there02:07
remedialjoefor creating a rar or unraring .. if you are wanting to unrar .. just go ahead and extract02:08
panfistim trying to extract hundreds if not thousands of rars02:08
panfistbeing able to select more than one and being able to "extract here" would be nice02:08
darkodoes anyone know any movie player (.avi file) that supports subtitle... cuz I have separate subtitle file example subtitle.srt and ofcourse it's syncronized with movie time02:08
panfistive tried figuring it out in the command line,02:08
BluesKajere4si, well thanks for the heads up but , it's too late now i, can't do anyrhing since I reformatted the partition...strange that this kde message kept re-appearing tho,http://www.pastebin.ca/91834702:09
panfistunrar * doesn't work it just matches the first file and even then it doesnt unrar it02:09
remedialjoewhat shows up when you select a bunch and right click?02:09
remedialjoeyou could try going into the ark or whatever the unzipp program is called.. and then selecting them all inside the program itself02:10
ere4siBluesKaj, annoying more than strange - maybe02:10
darkodoes anyone know any movie player (.avi file) that supports subtitle... cuz I have separate subtitle file example subtitle.srt and ofcourse it's syncronized with movie time02:10
panfistthe same thing that shows up if i select 1 rar and right click, it doesnt include extract. although it does for zips. ahhh i will try to browse from within ark and see what happens02:10
panfistark doesnt support browsing like that it seems, like winrar does02:10

ICMI have followed several howtos on how to install Compiz Fusion under KDE 7.10, but no luck whatsoever. I'm running three monitors on two graphics cards, one is a dual-head Nvidia 7600GS, the other is an onboard 6150LE. Both are using the restricted driver 'nvidia', I believe, and I simply can't get compiz fusion to work. I'm just stuck. How do I enable it in KDE?02:31
nosrednaekimICM» doesn't compiz not work with Twinview?02:32
Dr_willisicm try getting it going on one monitor/card first.. then go from there.02:32
Dr_willisCompiz does work with twinview for me - on my 8800 gts02:32
Dr_willisBut thats just a single card.  2 video outs.02:32
nosrednaekimhum.02:33
ICMTo be honest, I'm not sure how I have it set up. it's using Xineview or something of that sort?02:33

remedialjoe_storbeck:  i think du is the comman .. but the flags aren't all there05:59
storbeckHow so?06:00
remedialjoe_say you have a directory of directories06:00

noodles12hi, i just installed kubuntu 7.10, but there seems to be nothing in my kmenu under kmenu>>system               (i believe this is where things like synaptic and stuff are?)06:23
Reconizerkde on windows :O how does that make you feel cody?06:23
codywindows in kde, how does that jmake you feel reconizer06:24
codyright click your kmenu, and click menu editor.  is it enabled?06:24
noodles12i see more applications, terminal applications, in its submenu. but i don't see where to enable or disable it06:25
remedialjoe_my multicolumn view isn't showing the full title name.. and there are no coloum lines to expand =[06:26
codyif they are there when you expand system, it should appear in kmenu...  maybe try refreshing your desktop?  i dont know why it would not appear06:27
noodles12cody: synaptic wasn't installed by default. Is this normal for kubuntu? or maybe nothing in my "system" is installed?06:27
codyits called adept installer in kde.  open it by kmenu > add/remove programs06:28
codythere is also adept manager06:28
codyor use apt-get in terminal06:28
noodles12cody: there is no add/remove programs in my kmenu. I am reusing my /home partition where i previously had pclos and opensuse installed. is it possible whatever prior kde configs i had left over in my /home screwed up my kubuntu install?06:29
=== krwk is now known as krawek
codythats a possibility06:30
codytry installing kde with apt-get?06:30
codythat could resolve the problem06:30
noodles12so just apt-get install kde-base ? or would i need to uninstall it first?06:31
SilentDisnoodles12: i'd suggest sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop06:31
codyi wouldnt recommend uninstalling it.  if you need to remove kde, install gnome and then reinstall kde06:31
Hydrogenhuhwut?06:32
cody^^  that should work06:32
Daisuke_Idowhat?06:32
HydrogenIf you need to remove kde... install gnome and then install kde?06:32
Daisuke_Idothat may be the worst advice ever...  and i listen to my own!06:32
SilentDisi came into this discussion late...  but i do recommend using the 'named' packages to grab stuff for ubuntu.  kubuntu-desktop, ubuntu-desktop, xubuntu-desktop, etc06:32
HydrogenI think something got lost in translation.06:32
remedialjoe_how come my multi column view in konq is only listing 16 characters now06:33
codyinstall kubuntu-desktop would be the best way, thank you silentdis06:33
remedialjoe_before it listen almost the entire file name contents06:33
remedialjoe_listed*06:33
remedialjoe_what have i done here06:33
noodles12ok thanks gusy. i'll try that... stupid opensuse!06:34
SilentDiscody: nt.  seen a lot of problems with kde being 'dropped in' without the ubuntu-specific stuff.  lotta settings have to be done by hand and such, real pain in the ass, and especially useless when it's already done for ya with the <n>ubuntu-desktop packages :)06:34
remedialjoe_found it   tools/configure konquerer, appearece .. width for icon text06:34
noodles12it says kubuntu-desktop is already it's newest version...06:35
noodles12should i remove it and then reinstall?06:35
SilentDisnoodles12 if you do, make SURE you throw either gnome or xfce at it first06:35
SilentDisnoodles12 something like 'aptitude install ubuntu-desktop' reboot, choose to use gnome.  then a 'aptitude remove kubuntu-desktop'06:36
noodles12SilentDis: if i just booted into recover mode. would i be able to aptitude remove kubuntu-desktop and then install kubuntu-desktop?06:36
SilentDisnoodles12 what is the original problem?  there's usually an easier solution is all :)06:37
SilentDisafk 1 moment, gotta release excess caffinated liquids :)06:37
DezineI just install KDE 4 and for some reason there is no bottom bar?06:37
noodles12SilentDis: i came i started with ubuntu, then pclos, then opensus... kept the same /home folder. I installed kubuntu and my kmenu>system is empty and there is no kmenu>add/remove programs so i feel like i'm missing things or teh remnants of messing w/ the kde setup from the other 2 distros are still in my /home folder and messing with my fresh kubuntu install06:38
SilentDisnoodles12 ohhh... how about the real easy method then? :D06:39
noodles12SilentDis: yea hook it up =)06:39
SilentDisnoodles12 you are in safe mode now, right?06:39
noodles12no. i'm in normal kubuntu06:39
SilentDisnoodles12 er, recovery mode.  whatever.  stupid windowsisms are hard to brake lol06:39
noodles12SilentDis: i can go into recovery mode in a bit, i'm in regular session right now06:41
SilentDisnoodles12 ok.  boot to either recovery or off your ubuntu cd.  mount whatever drive /home is on, and rename your home folder.  go from /home/noodles12 to /home/noodles12-old.  reboot.  login as normal.  your home folder will be rebuilt from scratch for you, and you can just go in and port all your files over without worry06:41
ajajajaI prefer Windows over Kubuntu though ...06:41
ajajajaToo much clicking around on Kubuntu ...06:41
remedialjoe_clicking around06:41
remedialjoe_ajajaja06:41
remedialjoe_are you not familiar with katapult06:41
ajajajaalt ----><--- ?06:42
noodles12SilentDis: that command ( just ot make sure is )   "mv /home/noodles12 /home/noodles111     "  right?06:42

ajajajaPlus I dont like the default Nautilus behavior on Kubuntu06:42

ajajajaWhy is Kubuntu in spatial mode by default ? Can someone tell me ?06:43
Lionoi need to setup a network with windows clients and kubuntu server. (authenticate windows clients from the server via LDAP i gues?) what do i need to do first. this is my first day of networking. did even pluged the wires ?06:43
codythanks silentdis for that easier workaround06:43
codylooking at that makes mine look retarded : /06:43
remedialjoe_ajajaja:  can you tell me what spatial mode is06:44
remedialjoe_i know it has something to do with konq (i think)06:44
SilentDiscody i dealt with the same thing going from 6.06 to 7.10.  didn't bther to upgrade my box, just grabbed a package list, renamed my home, and did a fresh install.  sooo nice having /home on a seperate partition :)06:44
ajajajayes Its when you open a folder , then open another one and it opens another window which could stay at the same place06:44
ajajajait is _very_ annoying !06:45
remedialjoe_oh06:45
remedialjoe_i enjoy it06:45
remedialjoe_;]06:45
remedialjoe_minimal06:45
SilentDiscody as for your method being retarded... it's not, would work just fine too, but there's nearly always an easier way.  ;)06:45
remedialjoe_i hear there was a big pepsi/coca cola over that one tho06:45
ajajajaSo why the Hell is Kubuntu acting like taht ?06:45
ajajajai prefer pepsi if you ask me ....06:45
remedialjoe_no man only coke tastes good.. pepsi can't taste as good.06:46
ajajajaSO you use Konqueror in kinda spatial mode ?06:46
remedialjoe_there's no way06:46
ajajajaomg ! thats not true !06:46

remedialjoe_mind you i prefer jones cola cause of the evaporated cane sugar06:47
remedialjoe_Liono_:  yep06:47
Liono_remedialjoe i need to setup a network with windows clients and kubuntu server. (authenticate windows clients from the server via LDAP i gues?) what do i need to do first. this is my first day of networking. did even pluged the wires ?06:47

remedialjoe_lol06:48
ajajajai prefer JD and COke06:48
SilentDisremedialjoe_ well... yeah.  jones sodas in general is not to be classed with such brutish beverages as produced by either pepsi or coke though.  kinda like compairing a fliet mignon made at a 5-star new york restaurant to a burger from mcdonalds...06:48
remedialjoe_Liono_:  I said I could see you.. But I can't anser that for you =]06:48

ajajajafilet mignon06:49
Liono_i need to setup a network with windows clients and kubuntu server. (authenticate windows clients from the server via LDAP i gues?) what do i need to do first. this is my first day of networking. ?06:49
remedialjoe_Liono_: spend another 3 years reading how-to's ?06:49
SilentDisLiono_ why does it 'have' to be a kubuntu server?  wouldn't ubuntu server be a better match for something like that?  the packages for samba are already setup then.06:50
remedialjoe_lol06:50
Liono_SilentDis iam too used to kde.06:50
surgy!samba | Liono_06:50
ubotuLiono_: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and http://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.06:50
SilentDisLiono_ try this then: aptitude install ubuntu-server (i believe that's the correct meta-package, someone will correct me if i'm wrong, i'm sure) :)06:51
SilentDisLiono_ that way you'll have both your kde gui and all the packages setup for a true server environment06:51
Liono_surgy SilentDis so i need to install samba first and make a network, to use LDAP ?06:51
surgyLiono_: listen to SilentDis he prolly knows more about it06:52
SilentDisLiono_ I have not gone through the whole 'making windows like my linux boxes' fiasco... instead i just 'upgraded' my network to use all debian-based OSes... well, cept my tiny webserver, but that's just because i'm lazy and haven't poked my head into it's closet in months lol06:52
remedialjoe_hahahaha06:53
Liono_ic..06:53
Liono_so before installing ldap. i need to make  a network by samba? right?06:53
ajajajaDo you really think kubuntu will get kde 4.0 in a short time, knowing how unstable it is ?06:53
SilentDisi think it's uptime is around 9 or 10 months now... i think that was the last power outage we had...06:54
surgyLiono_: for simple file sharing and printer sharing samba is awsome, and im certain it can do more, i just never needed more06:54
noodles12SilentDis: hey it didn't work. I got a "unable to start ksysstartupconfig" or something like that... " check installatoin"06:54
remedialjoe_i think you are running into the upgrade problem noodles1206:54
noodles12remedialjoe_: what upgrade problem? it was a clean install.. sortof..06:55
SilentDisnoodles12 ok, you ARE missing something in the install, or some package is marked funny it sounds like.  what release of kubuntu are we talking here?06:55
noodles127.1006:55
remedialjoe_noodles12:  did you upgrade/update06:55
Liono_surgy so before installing ldap. i need to make  a network by samba? right?06:55
=== gota____ is now known as gota
surgyLiono_: to be perfectly honest i dont even know what ldap is, so you shouldnt listen to me06:56
remedialjoe_yah truely you should scrap all windows clients and go *nix completely.. it will save you loads of problems06:56
SilentDisLiono_ in all seriousness... we are probably not gonna be able to answer this right off for you.  i would highly recommend doing a quick 'aptitude install ubuntu-server' and hopping over there, they'll be FAR more knowledgable about setting that kinda thing up.  use, general desktop troubleshooting, BASIC networking, etc, that's our forte06:57

noodles12SilentDis: when i moved /home/noodles12 to /home/noodles12_backup i got that msg. i just renamed it back to /home/noodles12 to boot here to talk to u guys =). did i need to mkdir /home/noodles12 ? i was assuming kubuntu would just make a new directory06:57
remedialjoe_yah.. once you've setup your server in ubuntu .. come back and we will show you how to throw KDE back on06:57
Liono_SilentDis yes. but what to do next.06:58
SilentDisnoodles12 it shoulda made it for you... i did just have an idea though...06:58
SilentDisLiono_ read that whole !info bit... there's a server-specific room which will have people who are FAR more inclined to have the info you need.  #ubuntu-server06:58
noodles12SilentDis: now Kmenu>settings disappeared06:59
Liono_SilentDis k07:00
SilentDisnoodles12 what about just renaming ~/.kde to ~/my-.kde-backup and restarting x (ctrl-alt-backspace)?07:00
noodles12i'll try it07:00
noodles12brb07:01
ajajajaAre there any kubuntu devs hanging aound here sometimes ?07:01
remedialjoe_in addition to the language pack upgrade bit .. after removing the two packages, if you add another  you won't get the "can't set locale"   issues .. i used language-pack-ca-en  and everything *seems smooth07:01
SilentDisajajaja they lurk, and are known to pounce and boot windows fanbois.  it is really entertaining to watch :D07:02
ajajajaBut they must not be many of them here07:02

remedialjoe_what do you prefer to use over nautilus07:04
grulas far as i know kubuntu is as much click here, click there as windows, except there are options to click here and click there, which there aren't in windows07:04
SilentDisalucardromero probably over at the cups homepage... i can tell you from experience, virtually anything HP works.07:04

Daisuke_Idoajajaja: if you're using kubuntu, konqueror is the default file manager.07:05
remedialjoe_ajajaja:  are you sure its not Dolphin07:05
alucardromeroI've noticed... it's even compatible with the HP fax machine printers.07:05

Myrth[home]it's really annoying to close everytime all the applications i don't want but they popup again everytime07:11

Myrth[home]doesn't session gets resaved on close?07:11
Myrth[home]right now 8.04 =] , but happened always07:12
alucardromeroIt has to... anything you have open comes back when you boot back up.07:12
SilentDisMyrth[home] it's an option, just like everything else in KDE ;)07:12
Myrth[home]alucardromero: i close everything, log out, then it reopens again07:12

alucardromeroWhoa... phantom apps?07:12
DezineI'm having some issues with KDE4.. There's no bottom bar and my desktop resets everytime I log out (icon placement and widgets).07:12
remedialjoe_i think it was kopete07:12
remedialjoe_and konqueror file browsing07:12
Myrth[home]for example epiphany - i logged into gnome one time. since then it opens always07:13
SilentDisMyrth[home] there SHOULD be an option somewhere right off the menu for 'save session'.  otherwise, when you hit the logoff button, it should have a checkbox you can drop a tick into07:13
alucardromeroKDE4... icky.  Got rid of that right away.07:13
Myrth[home]no, no kde4 for me :P07:13
alucardromeroI couldn't find any network manager or network tools.07:13

SilentDiswow, it is released.  shows how up on things i am lol07:14
DezineEh, I don't use KDE307:15
alucardromeroFor me, lots of typical use items were missing from KDE4.07:15
DezineI typically use gnome but want to check out kde4 for a bit, kde3 isn't my thing07:15
alucardromeroAh, okay.07:15
remedialjoe_where is the "sessions" manager thing07:15
DezineI think it has great potential and I don't want to miss out :)07:16
SilentDisi went from gnome when i first switched to linux, then to kde later.07:16

SilentDisi can almost guarntee 8.10 with kde4 though.  just how things move07:21

studenttruly09:24
storbeckClose the terminal and start over09:24

storbeckstudent, I'm done helping you09:28
storbeckIf you don't know how to copy/paste you should be using Windows.09:28
studentthen after that the secon command ie ~/.kde/share/config/konquerorrc09:28

el-gokuloboth uses qt as library? :P10:40

ali3n51oh really10:40
ali3n51why there 2 login10:40
ali3n51the kde 3 and kde 410:41

ali3n51how to uninstall kde 310:41
el-gokuloi wouldnt recommend it10:41

ali3n51there something happen if i uninstall kde 310:42
storbecksudo apt-get autoremove10:42
storbecksudo apt-get update10:42
el-gokulokde 4 is far from being ready for use. in my opinion10:42
ali3n51what i supposed to used10:42
Lynoureali3n51: no support from this channel anymore, for example. and I bet upgrade is not officially supported from kde4-only gutsy10:42
ali3n51for now i am using kde10:42
ali3n51kde310:42
el-gokulomany features from kde 3.5.x are not already working in kde 410:43
ali3n51oh really10:43
storbeck4 is still in baby stages.10:43
ali3n51so what the best to used kde 3 or kde 410:43
el-gokuloits just the first step to a new kde experience10:43
el-gokuloright now its better to stay with kde 310:43
storbeckkde4 reminds me too much of vista.10:43
el-gokulowait for kde 4.1 to try it out again. but its unknown when it will be released10:44
ali3n51what i'm going to do10:44
Lynourestorbeck: the looks are greatly changable. :) and what's under the hood is nothing like Vista10:45
storbeckI know.10:45
storbeckBut the default look does.10:45
ali3n51u mean kde 4.0 is release accidentally like vista10:45
el-gokuloyou can keep both versions installed it wont hurt you10:45
storbeckLynoure: In perspective though, I think KDE and Gnome are both too much like Windows. :P10:46
ali3n51if u can't choice  where to login you can't open the kde10:46
AlferedHichcoki cant understand. where to put        BASE    dc=example,dc=com          and what does the comands  in 'Populating The LDAP Tree' heading in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OpenLDAPServer        means........ can any one help?10:47
ali3n51wait i change it to kde 4 to discover something10:47
Lynourestorbeck: that just baffles me :)10:47
el-gokulotry kde 3 for some days out. then kde 4. and you should notice the differences10:47
ali3n51have read the bible10:48
storbeckLynoure: I think it's the whole idea of "have a gui for everything"10:48
Lynourestorbeck: to me too much windows would be forcing to do things through the gui... mostly I don't have to, unless I want to10:49

adredi dont know thats why im asking bcoz i dont how to remove it by using konsole. usually i just remove apps by their name but KDE group wizard has broken long name...12:49
Dr_willisit may not be a specific ap. it may be part of a larget package12:49
adredu mean it is a group of apps?12:49
Dr_willisNo idea. I cant recall ever using any groupware stuff.  I doubt if its a single package all by itself.12:50
Dr_willisYou could use the package manager tool and search for the filename and see what package its found in.12:51

JuJuBeeGreetings...  I have a shell script I wish to run as a cron job.  I can run it from CLI, but for some reason it does not execute via crontab... Any help?12:58

Dr_willisJuJuBee,  give the full path to the script12:59
Dr_willisand you are wanting the script ran as root?12:59
JuJuBeeMy crontab entry is 0 2 * * 1,2,3,4,5 /usr/local/myCrons/dothis.sh13:00
storbeckDid you chmod it?13:00
bittyxHi, it's me again. I've managed to restore my screen resolution rather easily, but, again, it's 1280x1024, instead of the wide 1680x1050 it's supposed to be. I've tried the autodetect script, and editing the xorg.conf. Neither works. I don't think other solutions apply to me. Could my video card cause such a problem?13:00
=== tackat is now known as tackat_lunch
Dr_willisIts possible its the moniotr not reporting that it can do that res.13:01
storbeckJuJuBee: chmod +x /usr/local/myCrons/dothis.sh13:01
Dr_willisI recall using a xmodeline generator web site ages ago for my widescreen laptop. But i havent had to mess with that in ages.13:01
omeowHi there.13:01
JuJuBeeAlready +x13:02
JuJuBeeI have 2 that I need run as cron, one runs fine the other does not.13:02
bittyxWell, actually, when I run the autodetect, there's the part where it displays the possible resolutions, with some already selected. The 1680x1050 is selected already. When I go to System Settings -> Monitor & Display, the largest possible resolution is 1280x1024, whereas the Refresh rate is 76 Hz (I cannot change it), instead of 60 Hz, which my monitor would support.13:02
jussi01bittyx: try this, under the "Monitor" section add a bit tht says         Option "Preferred Mode" "1680x1050_60.00"13:03
jussi01but with your preferred mode13:03
jussi01leave off the _60.0013:03
storbeckShouldn't it be 1-5 instead of 1,2,3,4,5?13:04
omeowAdept just installed a list of updates and now I can no longer type a double quote. If I try it, then a / appears instead. What happened?13:04
JuJuBeestorebeck, according to the docs, it is comman separated list13:04
storbeckHm13:04
Dr_willisI thouight 1-5 was the same as 1,2,3,4,513:05
jussi01omeow: sound like your keyboard variant got changed13:05
jussi01!keyboard13:05
ubotuTo switch your keyboard layout on GNOME: System -> Preferences -> Keyboard (GNOME) - KDE: K -> System Settings -> Regional & Language -> Keyboard Layout (KDE) - Xfce: see https://help.ubuntu.com/6.10/xubuntu/desktopguide/C/switch-keyboard-layout.html - See also !Shortcuts13:05
Dr_willisbut i rarely use cron. :)13:05
omeowjussi01: It's still set to US int which is what it was set to before.13:05
jussi01omeow: not sure then :(13:06
storbeckYour crontab entry seems valid13:06
storbeckI don't see why it's not working13:06
bittyxjussi01: Nope, tried the preferred mode, with and without _60.00. Still the same. Any other ideas? I'm really new to Linux so I have no idea how things go with drivers and such - perhaps there is a problem with those?13:07
adredhi, i think its the KDE server configuration wizards. package name, kdepim-wizards. il try removing it13:07
JuJuBeeMe either.  I have several crons running.  All files have same file perms, just this one not working.13:07
storbeckDoes crontab -l display it right?13:07
JuJuBeeappears to13:07
jussi01!fixres | bittyx have you tried the instructions here?13:07
ubotubittyx have you tried the instructions here?: The X Window System is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart your X, type « sudo /etc/init.d/?dm restart » in a console - To fix screen resolution or other X problems: http://help.ubuntu.com/community/FixVideoResolutionHowto13:07
jussi01bittyx: and just checking, you did restartx after making the change?13:08
storbeckHow long have you ad it running?13:08
storbeckhad*13:08
bittyxYup. The options that would apply to me don't change anything.13:08
bittyxWell, does CTRL+ALT+BKSP do the same?13:08
bittyxIf yes, then I've done that.13:09
JuJuBeeI have been using it since Sept.  It was running at 8am at first, but then I changed the time to 7am and now it doesn't work.  So I tried 2am instead and same, not working.13:09
storbeckAh13:09
adredi have removed it thanks..:)13:09
jussi01bittyx: should yes. but its generally better to log out and ctrl+e ;)13:09
JuJuBeeAh ? you see something?13:10
storbeckHeh, so it only works at 8AM?13:10
bittyxjussi01: Ah, what does ctrl+e do?13:10
JuJuBeeWell, I did not try setting it back to 8, I want it run earlier if possible.13:10
bittyxjussi01: Nevermind, I'm just gonna try it. Is there any other place where I could find ideas as to what the problem is?13:11
jussi01bittyx: restarts x if you are at the login screen :)13:11
storbeckI don't know. I'm stumped13:11
adredHi, how do I remove the files from ~/.thumbnails through the konsole?13:11
JuJuBeeI will try 8am again and see what happens13:11
jussi01bittyx: the link the bot gave you would be a good place to start13:11
JuJuBeeCan't believe it will make a diff.13:11
storbeckadred: rm -rf ~/.thumbnails/*13:11
jussi01bittyx: also, what kind of gfx card you have?13:11
JuJuBeeWhere does cron log errors?13:11
bittyxjussi01: Perhaps there is a problem with the video card? The autodetect script sets vesa as the default driver.13:12
jussi01bittyx: which card is it?13:12
bittyxjussi01: I've already been to that link, it doesn't help. As to the video card, it's an Asus EAH2400PRO. It's a rather cheap card, but it works fine with WinXP, so I suppose it should work here, too.13:13

Daisuke_LaptopLynoure: it actually makes sense to do it that way - categories are determined by packages (initially), and windows apps aren't packaged in that way...  i guess if there were a database for wine that saw what you installed, it could put it in the proper category, but putting all windows programs together, while not entirely intuitive, does make sense17:19

x_linkJust have a question, then I will leave you guys alone.21:23
x_linkWhat do you guys think of Kubuntu 64-bits?21:24
x_linkI have Kubuntu 7.10 32-bits right now and it works great.21:24
_dennisterstick with it then21:24
ScarFreewillx_link, stay21:24
x_linkI had 2GB RAM, but I got another 2GB today. But when I do "free -m" it only shows 3.5GB =/21:24
flipstaryep21:24
x_linkIt doesn't show the other 512MB.21:24
flipstarthats 32bit21:24
x_linkWhy is that?21:24
x_linkBut 32-bits is supposed to support 4GB RAM?21:24
flipstar32 can only adress 3.521:25
flipstarno21:25
x_linkAhha okey.21:25
rjbthanx for the link from ubotu, but i'm afraid it contains nothing of use to me21:25
Arwenflipstar, actually, with extended memory addressing, up to 64GB can be used21:25

flipstaruhm thats just theoretic ?21:26
BluesKajok , errands are done21:27
rjbok could someone perhaps point me to a channel where folks that play w/mobile phones hang out?21:27

flipstar"never change a running system" :P21:28
Arwenflipstar, hmm? no, it exists on MS Windows Server and probably Linux too21:28

BluesKajx_link: depends on your graphics card21:29
_dennisterx_link, i echo flipstar's comment..don't do what I did and change a running system21:29
x_linkSince it only uses 3.5GB =/21:29
ScarFreewillx_link, you'll get less support for various applications as well as packages if you use 64bit version21:29
Arwen64-bit is faster until you have to load 32-bit libs for compatibility21:29
BluesKaj64 bit is lacking with ATI hardware21:29
_dennisterI just did and now i'm in here looking for help :(21:29
x_link_dennister: Did you just change to 64-bits?21:29

_dennisterand it'll be even better when i win my lawsuit against my old landlords...more hardware, here we come :)21:33
x_link_dennister: hehe21:33
_dennisterbut anyway, i need some help with kde4/kde321:33
flipstarx_link: no..the problem is that a 32bit system can only adress 3.5gig ..so everything else cant be used21:33
BluesKaj_dennister:  far from 'expert " I'm afraid , aamof , i'm in particularly bad jam with this latest update that borked my setup :P21:33

BluesKaj_dennister:  it was yesterday , the word is that a language package upgrade is the offending item21:36

ArwenI see two problems with your xorg.conf so far23:36
ArwenMetamodes should be "Horiz1xVert1-Horiz2xVert2"23:36
BanTamthe device section, should reflect which monitor? main or 2nd?23:37
