ubuntu /dev/sda4 is my boot/root partition.. /dev/sda1 is my windows partition.. http://rafb.net/p/hFGwsy55.html what is wrong on this /boot/grub/menu.lst?00:37
vinny2but its not 100% stable00:37
vinny2ubuntu can u help me with my wireless network00:37
mandragorai couldn't... i's to run linux from it's live cd and from there install it... but i'm trying and i'm not being able...00:38
vinny2what os do u have installed now00:38
atomicpotatonever mind then... I found it myself.... no thanks to the channel00:38
vinny2ok, find 8.04 live cd, download it in xp. When ur done burning the disc, run it, under xp and it will let u install it in xp00:39
vinny2thats what i did00:39
mandragoraok... i'll try00:40
vinny2its easy to set up, no having to partion, and it is self installing almost00:40
Daisuke_Idohardy is still alpha, it should not be recommended to new users.00:40
vinny2i like the fact, u can install it and uninstall it under xp00:40
vinny2no partioning00:40
mandragoradoes it have the latest KDE version?00:40
vinny2it has 3. something00:40
vinny2it doesnt have 400:40
vinny2but it has the most up to date version of 300:41
vinny2is it ok if i give him the link of a website?00:41
vinny2i dont want to break any rules00:41
mandragorabut as daisuke said, will be hard to me? i mean... this version is much difficult i've been 3 days ttrying to connect to internet00:42
ubuntumandragora: 3.5.9 is used on 8.04 by default, there also is a kde4 version but i would really not reccomend you to use it since you seem to be new to kubuntu/linux00:42
vinny2its my first time using ubuntu to, but ubuntu is an expert00:42
ubuntu=O geez thanks.. i woulnt call myself an expert lol00:43
vinny2thats the link to 8.0400:43
vinny2that i used00:43
mandragorayeah ubuntu, i don't know anything about linux but i've rread that this verison of linux is the most friendly becouse of the KDE enviroment...00:43
vinny2i wish i could use ubuntu, but when ever i install it, and boot it up for the first time, it says installion failed00:44
vinny2only kubuntu worked when i installed it00:44
vinny2xubuntu said it failed00:44
mandragorabut the unix is so hard to me that i must read lot of tutorials for doing almost everything00:44
ubuntukubuntu looks more like windows as ubuntu, thats why kde is more easy to most new users00:44
mandragorai couldn't even run the xubuntu live cd00:45
vinny2kde 4 is almost like windows vista, only faster, smarter, and better00:45
vinny2dont run the live cd00:45
vinny2run the cd in windows00:45
vinny2and it will guide u though how to install00:45
vinny2and it will keep windows intact00:46
vinny2so u can uninstall kubuntu is u dont like it00:46
mandragoralol, it was useless, and so it is the cd of kubuntu on windows, it says why i should have it..00:46
vinny2it installs it under windows, but when u boot up it says boot windows or boot kubuntu00:46
mandragoraand this version, i mean the one i have can be installed on windows?00:47
vinny2and uninstalled in windows00:47
vinny2really easily00:47
vinny2idk, it just does00:47

Dr_willisJucato,  ive tried both the desktops.. and found them both... well.. lacking. :)00:57

ubotuWireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs00:58
vinny2i tried that ubotu00:58
Jucatoif it works in Ubuntu, it should work in Kubuntu as well since they use the same backend (networkmanager)00:59
Dr_willisE17 used to be the big bloated thing.. and really the special effects are not that special. :) In fact its downright ugly at times.. if i want light- i will stick with jwm i guess.00:59

Daisuke_Idothe good news is that hardcore counterstrike players - like lawyers - have their personalities to keep them from procreating :D01:16
Dr_willisIm still dreading all the WUBI  questions we are going to get here in a few weeks/month.01:16
Daisuke_IdoDr_willis: agreed.  it'll be a headache at best.  how many of the people that are here on a regular basis can or will actually test out wubi to know how to help get past problems?01:18
ubuntu_hi! i've just booted a Hardy livecd on a new machine.  the livecd environment seems not to contain the rudimentary include files like sys/types.h etc. -- is there an apt command that installs them?01:18
Dr_willisTheres a lot not included on the live cd.  :) due to size reasons.01:18
ubuntu_i can understand that, certainly!01:18
ubuntu_apt-get seems to do a good job of fetching them, even if i don't know quite where they are going (ram disk?)01:19
ubuntu_but i couldn't quite figure out where these include files should come from01:19
Daisuke_Idoubuntu_: try in #ubuntu+1 - this channel is for dapper through gutsy support.  also, why would you compile anything on a live cd environment?01:19
Daisuke_Idoubuntu_: build-essential is probably the package you're looking for01:19
ubuntu_the reason is, i am trying to rescue my other linux installation:  the new motherboard has an IDE controller which is rather new, and i need to compile a crucial kernel module01:19
Dr_willisof course all this stuff gets downloaded/installed to ram...01:19
Dr_willisSo new its not in hardy. egads thats new.01:20
ubuntu_oh no, it is in hardy... but my other installation is gentoo01:20
draremcan i send a command to another terminal?  echo 'ls -lh .' > /dev/pts/201:20
ubuntu_the trouble is that the gentoo livecd is not new enough to have it!01:20
ubuntu_the fact that it's in hardy is exactly how i managed to get booted at all01:20
Dr_willisyou could boot the hardy live cd and access the files perhaps?01:20
ubuntu_yes, that i can do01:20
Daisuke_Idoubuntu_: yeah, you're going to want build-essential, maybe use some chroot magic01:21
ubuntu_but then there is another problem:  i cannot chroot, because that system is 64-bit, and the 64-bit hardy livecd didn't work (why?)01:21
Daisuke_Idobut after that, i'm lost01:21
ubuntu_i think (hope!) building in the 32-bit environment will do the trick though:  thanks for the pointer to build-essential01:21
cpk1ubuntu_: you could mount one of your partitions and tell apt to download to there as well01:22
Daisuke_Idoyou're compiling a 32-bit kernel module to use with a 64-bit kernel?01:22

nosrednaekimah...thats probably the problem then :)02:08
nosrednaekimdon't know know how to fix that though02:08
BluesKajMakuseru, afaik amarok will play wav files without any configuration required, plays them by default. Describe your problem with wav files .02:09

nosrednaekimalanna» I mean... at the same time.02:12
nosrednaekimif not....02:12
alannait's weird, nothing should be locking it up02:12
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 »02:12

Daisuke_Laptopyou are aware it's the same OS with a different desktop environment, right?  there's no need for two installations04:52
Erickj92i used the guided install to resize my harddrive, and let it do its thing04:52
Daisuke_Laptopthat was pointless04:52
Daisuke_Laptopsudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop04:53

Daisuke_Laptopyou'll HAVE kde and gnome04:53
Daisuke_Laptopyou select what you want from the login screen04:53
Erickj92i see04:53
Daisuke_Laptoptrust me, it's a much better use of space - you can keep settings between the two, share the same home directory04:54
Erickj92i dont really want to share the same home directory04:54
Daisuke_Laptopi flip back and forth between gnome, kde, xfce, fluxbox, enlightenment, whatever i feel like at the time04:54

Erickj92so should i just delete the partition with Ubuntu on it, and resize the partition with Kubuntu on it?04:55

Erickj92Diasuke, what can i do now?04:58
Daisuke_Laptopsorry, checking on dinner04:58
Daisuke_Laptopwell, i don't know why grub wouldn't show the other - possibly because they're the same kernel maybe?  should have been something...04:58
Erickj92i see04:59
Daisuke_Laptopbut that's what i would personally recommend, deleting and resizing04:59
Erickj92well im in gparted and see that i can get rid of Ubuntu04:59
Erickj92but it wont let me resize the partition with Kubuntu on it04:59

PendetaSilentDis, what do they block and why?06:13

PendetaIs there a Kubuntu server edition?07:58
sarah__Pendeta: its kubuntu cause it has KDE, server editinos have no desktop enviornment08:17
ActionParsnipsarah__, server one (I believe uses gnome)08:18
sarah__ah wierd i thought the point of those is when you didnt need a gui08:18
ActionParsnipsarah__, it may just drop to CLI and have no gui but there is nothing stopping you installing a DE08:19
ActionParsnipsarah__, I've never done the server install08:19
ActionParsnipyou could just use X then it would be xubuntu08:19
comp8can anyone help me out,my screen keeps going off and saying out of range when i run kubuntu08:19
ActionParsnipcomp8, have you recently modified your graphics options?08:20
comp8how do i do that?08:20
comp8i only installed it but am a newbie08:20
ActionParsnipcomp8, sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg08:21
Pendetasarah and ActionParsnip, thanks!08:21
ActionParsnipcomp8, set your resolution and refresh rate low and build up from there08:21
comp8how do you set those in kubuntu08:21
sarah__comp8: try your monitors autoadjust08:22
ActionParsnipcomp8, its all there when you run that command08:22
ActionParsnipcomp8, if in doubt leave the defaults08:23
ActionParsnipcomp8, what graphics card do you have?08:23
comp8am using an old used monitor so i havent a clue what card it is08:23
ActionParsnipcomp8, the card is in the pc, not the monitor08:23
ActionParsnipcan you give us a pastebin of your lspci output08:24
ActionParsnip!paste | comp808:24
ubotucomp8: pastebin 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)08:24
comp8ok,here's the thing this is the first time a using kubuntu or linux for that matter,am comingfrom a windows enviroment so i need a bit of help with those commands08:26
ActionParsnipcomp8, menu -> run program and type konsole then hit enter08:26
ActionParsnipcomp8, you will now has a "dos prompt" but the one in Linux is FAR more powerful08:27
ActionParsnipcomp8, type lspci and hit enter08:27
ActionParsnipcopy allthe text and paste it to the pastebin (above) and give us the link in the address bar08:27
comp8that's the link08:29
ActionParsnipcomp8, perfect - good move08:30
ActionParsnipcomp8, use pastebin for masses of text or it scrolls the screen LOADS (not cool)08:30
ActionParsnipcomp8, ok can you open your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and give us a pastebin of that file08:32
ActionParsnipfrom the konsole you can type kate /etc/X11/xorg.conf08:33

MilhousePunkRockHello everyone!09:08
MilhousePunkRockI am trying to "rollback" from a previously manual configured wifi connection with wpa-psk and static ip to a network-manager managed connection with dhcp. Connection stalls at 28%, it works with wicd and with k-n-m on the live cd...09:09

GSF1200Sanyone alive in here?09:13
MilhousePunkRockcobra_: Are you in the sudoers group?09:14
cobra_how do i do that?09:14
GSF1200Sgotta stupid question for you guys- if I set a folders permissions to root, when I open a file within that directory, am I opening it AS root?09:15
MilhousePunkRockcobra_: Type some command with sudo in front. It will prompt for you password, I think, if you are in the group09:15
cobra_MilhousePunkRock: I am not in sudoers, but i want to be ;-)09:15
MilhousePunkRockcobra_: Basically it is possible, but you should not ask such things on a support channel.. From my point of view, it is somewhat illegal, especially at work...09:16

comp8after bootup when someone is using the machine it just goes off09:19
comp8thats when that it brings up the message09:20
MilhousePunkRockcomp8: Do you have the manual of the screen at hand? So you can set it properly?09:21
comp8no its an old used monitor09:21
MilhousePunkRockcomp8: Try to google for the manual, you will need the correct values09:22

comp8it says FRU under the type/model09:26
MilhousePunkRockcomp8: Good enough, google for that number09:26

GSF1200SIm just wondering if I set a directory to be be owned as root, when I open a sript/file, is it OPENED as root?09:35
jussi01Y-Town: Im not sure which package they come in. but they are installed by default afaik09:36
Y-Townyea... I have been looking and just cant find09:36
Y-TownI found the gmome ones  :o)09:36
jussi01Y-Town: any partcular reason you need the package name?09:37
Y-Townso I can use it or install it... whichever is needed09:37
jussi01Y-Town: you can use those tools in konsole09:37
jussi01ie. ping www.google.com09:37
Y-Town<<<------ GUI09:38
Y-Townbut I can I guess09:38
GSF1200SJussi01: so its just setting access rights.. Im just making sure im not OPENING files as root09:38
jussi01GSF1200S: correct. to open things as root you need to use sudo09:39
jussi01(or kdesudo)09:39
ActionParsnipkdesu for gui apps09:39
GSF1200Sright, but the only way to open the directory is to open konqueror/dolphin as root09:40
GSF1200Sor sudo/kdesu09:40
ActionParsnipGSF1200S, where is the folder located?09:41
GSF1200Shome folder09:41
ActionParsniptry sudo chown <your user name> <folder>09:41
jussi01GSF1200S: yes, if the folder is owned by root, the only one who can make changes is root.09:41
jussi01but anyone can open it09:41
Apple_CatGSF1200S: you can check permissions with " ls -l", and you will only be opening something as root if you sudo, or if you're asked for a password09:42
ActionParsnipGSF1200S, if you change the owner (chown) as root (the current owner). it willbe given to the user09:42
GSF1200SOk.. this is all my bad.. im not being clear enough-  I want to lock a folder to where only the root account can access and view the contents, including opening the files/running scripts, but I dont want those files scripts to run with admin/root privledges09:43
GSF1200Ssorry I wasnt more clear09:44
ActionParsnipGSF1200S, chown the individual files but leave the folder owned by root (my guess)09:45
GSF1200SActionParsnip: cool.. ill give that a shot09:45
GSF1200SThanks jussi01, Apple_Cat as well :)09:45
ActionParsnipGSF1200S, any joy?09:49
GSF1200Strying as we speak: multitasking quite a bit :) let you know in a few..09:50
Apple_Catman chown, and man chmod should sort things out if you have any problems09:53
GSF1200Sthat will do perfect guys09:56

Arwenalso, is there any reason that amarok can't read album art embedded in FLAC files?14:59
Odd-rationaleDid the kubuntu guys ever get around to redesigning the kubuntu website? I noticed that it is no longer in the topic, but the site seems to be the same....14:59
jussi01Odd-rationale: Id ask in #kubuntu-devel15:00
nosrednaekimOdd-rationale» they are working on it15:00
nosrednaekimshould be ready by the time hardy is released15:00
Odd-rationalenosrednaekim: That is good to know! I don't really like the current design....15:00
Arwennosrednaekim, I tried using sed with the expression "s/ /_" but that only seems to do the first line?15:02
nosrednaekimArwen» there is probably a option to do it for every line15:03
Arwenargh, I can't understand the man page...15:04
nosrednaekimArwen» are you doing capital r or small r?15:05
nosrednaekimfor the file input.... or maybe I don't understand the man page either ^_^15:06
nosrednaekimtry "sed s/ /_ r filename"15:06
nosrednaekimand back up the file first of course ;)15:07
Arwen-e expression #1, char 2: unterminated `s' command15:07
nosrednaekimbleh :)15:07
Arwenbah, I tried learning to use gawk too. ARGH EYECANCER.15:08

julleHow can i change Konversation to not open weblinks in Lynx?15:08
Arwenhmm, never mind, I found it. It was "sed -e 's/ /_/g' filename"15:09

nosrednaekimshoulda seen that15:10
Arwenhmm, changing Konversation to use a grey on black colorscheme doesn't really work15:10
Arwenyay for invisible text15:11
JucatoArwen: it's a long story, but you'll have to manually tweak colors in Konvi because some parts don't always follow the KDE color scheme15:11
djdarkmandoes kde have a partitioner? (qtparted doesn`t count)15:14
Jucatothere's another one in kde-apps.org just forgot the name15:14
Jucatodjdarkman: http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php/Disk+Manager?content=70149 I think15:16
BluesKajyeah, the default purple-pink text quits & joins is ugly.15:17
jhutchins_wkWhy does a DE need a disk partition tool in the first place?15:19
BluesKajI changed most of the default text clours in konverstion due to colour fatigue :)15:19
Jucatojhutchins_wk: admin tools perhaps15:20
* jhutchins_wk rejects the wrongheaded notion that system administration should involve a GUI. That's Windows.15:21
clau30_hellp. does the kubuntu live-dvd have support for ntfs partitions?15:21
clau30_i ment hello :)15:22
Jucatojhutchins_wk: I didn't say "system adminstrator". I said "system administration", which can be performed by a desktop user on his system15:22

jhutchins_wkJucato: If the user thinks he needs a GUI to do it, yes.15:23
mrunagiwhat password does the remote desktop want?15:23
clau30_Arwen: default or do I have to install it? gutsy 7.10 dvd i mean15:24
Arwenntfstools should be installed by default15:24
ghostcubeguys mac osx to linux samba or shh must be the same locale coding :|15:24
ghostcubemmaybe this is tthe prob here too15:24
JucatoI don't think gutsy has ntfstools installed by default, but it does have ntfs-3g installed but not enabled15:24
ghostcubehmmmm is there any idea for the compiz-taskbar thing maybe it doesnt recognize ShowAllWindows=false15:25
clau30_Jucato: so I can use ntfs-xyz to mount those partionions? I'll try it out15:26
clau30_thanks all15:26
Arwenghostcube, hmm? compiz-taskbar only shows local windows here15:26
djdarkmanthanks Jucato I found it too, one problem: t requires OpenSuSE's hwinfo, parted and HAL/DBus support, and is part of the DARKSTAR Linux Project.15:26
Arwendo you actually have it running? you have to remove the normal one and add the applet15:26

znoGhey all .. is it possible to do a minimal install of Kubuntu? (ie. no KDE .. like a base install). The idea is to install on a server so I want to avoid installing KDE and any graphical stuff.15:54
stdinznoG: just install the server edition then15:54
znoGdidn't know there was a kubuntu server edition. Nice! Thanks15:55
stdinthere is a Ubuntu server edition, not sure if there's a Kubuntu one, but then it would be the same anyway15:55
znoGyep, its ubuntu .. time to d/l15:56
LjLznoG, the only difference between Ubuntu and Kubuntu is that one has GNOME, and the other KDE. so a Kubuntu without KDE simply makes no sense16:01
LjLznoG: you can use the server-specific edition, or you could also actually do a minimal install of the non-server Ubuntu16:01
ubotuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD16:01
znoGLjL: yep, I figured. I thought since I have the Kubuntu DVD, I could save myself downloading an ISO by not installing any graphical stuff16:02
znoGcool, thanks!16:02
LjLznoG, however the normal ("live") CD (and i guess the DVD, but i've never used the DVD) is structured in a way that doesn't allow you to select what to install16:02

BluesKajm-lund, try scanning,afterwards choose the default settings18:05
m-lundBluesKaj: Tried that. I'm sure it scans the right directories. It founds 2 out of 3 plugins: vlc and flash. But not java....18:06
m-lundBluesKaj: An I have all the alternatives linked right together. And firefox finds all three of them.18:07
BluesKajm-lund, in the konq/settings/ javascript tab / open new windows , choose allow instaed of smart18:08
m-lundBluesKaj: I don't think it is the issue. Java is not even on the list, after I have scanned for new plugins while other plugins are.18:10
m-lundBluesKaj: And I know for sure, that it is scanning the right directories.18:11
BluesKajm-lund, there is a seperate setting option for java-javascript in konq, make sure you have it set up18:12
chidam__i recommend using firefox, better than konq in my opinion18:13
BluesKajchidam__, i used FF for a while but I'm still using konq if possible, altho it's more difficult to setup it's somewhat safer IMO18:14
m-lundBluesKaj: Same issue - But I would think I would be able to see the plugin right after having scanned for it. Also nspluginscanner doesn't detect the java-plugin.18:15

BluesKaj!reiser | Level1519:45
ubotuLevel15: reiserfs is a journalling file system, which outperforms many others on I/O operations, but has drawbacks (such as increasing likelihood of data loss, and introducing latency unsuitable for gaming or real-time audio). Using !ext3, the default on Ubuntu, is *highly* recommended. A read-only Windows driver is available at http://p-nand-q.com/download/rfstool.html19:45
stas_the driver is installed, but i dont know how to configure it19:45
ubotuxfs is a high-performance journaling filesystem originally developped by Silicon Graphics for their IRIX OS. It is now fully supported by Linux so you can install Ubuntu on it if you wish. More info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XFS19:46

Erickj92only 5 networks20:06
trappistErickj92: irssi can keep up with that easily, but without clickiness it might get tough to navigate at that point, I dunno - never joined that many channels at a time.  but it's extraordinarily configurable, so I'm sure it could be made pretty pleasant.20:06

StrangeletHay guys, could anyone here recommend a fine KDE gnutella client? Something like gtk-gnutella. :)23:19
Bizzehjust install gtk23:19
StrangeletNo alternatives exist? :\23:19
khaijeStrangelet: appollon is good, not sure if it does gnutella23:19
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about appollon - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi23:20
nosrednaekimBizzeh» i'm not sure actually, I would think so though,haven't heard any complaints of it not23:20
Strangeletapollon, I found it. :P23:20
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about apollon - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi23:20
khaijeStrangelet: i liked it when i used it ~1.5 yrs ago, it has a plugin for gnutella23:21
Bizzehnosrednaekim: ok, thing is, i need a definate answer23:21
khaijeit's essentially a frontend for gIFT lib23:21
Bizzehi cant risk messing the computer up at work, by putting kubuntu on it for 10 mins to test some stuff23:21
Strangeletkhaije: Hm, I will put into consideration, I will go lurking about, searching for other options. Thanks man. :)23:21
nosrednaekimanyone here have vista?23:21
pulaskinosrednaekim: sorry but I've checked all perms, locations etc but when I use your suggestion I get this message:unable to execute ./myremove_all.py: Permission denied23:22
icanhasadminpulaski: chmod +x?23:22
icanhasadminOk, So i have this crappy radeon xpress 200m card... GLX doesn't run, well it does, but about as slow as (edit). Any chance of aiglx or fglrx running something like awm or compiz reasonably?23:23
pulaskiI've checked all the perms, the symlink and its target but the message is the same.23:24
Bizzehicanhasadmin: get fglrx on there first23:24
icanhasadminBizzeh: I'm guessing I probabaly shouldn't use the repos? I can get the newest catlyst drivers from the site...23:24
Bizzehnewest ones from the site are your best bet23:25
icanhasadminpulaski: I understand.. but did you TRY "chmod +x /myremove_all.py".. just for fun?23:25
icanhasadminBizzeh: So does that mean there's some hope? or i'm guessing there's some crazy work around i'll need to find after i install this..23:26
Bizzehonce you install fglrx... your hardware acceleration will actualy be working23:26
julien__hey, i am french, and i have a problem whith kubuntu sound's ! Help me or give me a link23:26
ubotuAllez a #ubuntu-fr ou #kubuntu-fr pour de l'aide et de la discussion en francais.23:26
nosrednaekimicanhasadmin» actually the 8.03 drivers work very well here.23:27
ubotuIf you're having problems with sound, first ensure ARTS is running, by going to K Menu -> System Settings -> Sound System and making sure "Enable the sound system" is checked. If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP323:27
nosrednaekimsame chip23:27
julien__thank you for the link23:27
julien__i go bye23:27
pulaskiicanhasadmin: yes I just did to know avail.23:28
pulaskiicanhasadmin: yes I just did to no avail.23:28
icanhasadminI will try, last time I installed flgrx compiz wouldn't react to it, like i had no acceration installed at all. it will show up in the restricted drivers manager right?23:29
icanhasadminpulaski: that's really really odd. never run into anything chmod +x didn't fix. atleast not a permission problem23:29
Bizzehicanhasadmin: im not sure then, first thing i do when installing a new copy of any linux dist is get fglrx on here, because standard ati drivers blow23:30
icanhasadmin8.03 it is.. getting now.23:31

LadyNikonhey.. how do i change the screen resolution?23:32
icanhasadmin:P yeah thanks heh23:32

nosrednaekimthats good enough23:32
nosrednaekimLadyNikon» sstem settings->monitor23:33
nosrednaekimor maybe it display23:33
LadyNikonthats what i get for being so used to ubuntu >.<23:33
mmancein 7.10 root is disabled by default right?23:35
nosrednaekimmmance» yes23:36
mmancedoes that mean that all users are automatically added to the sudoers file?23:36
nosrednaekimhi meox23:36
nosrednaekimmmance» nope, only the first23:36
meoxthank god someone answerd me :D23:36
mmancehmm, and if your first created user is all of a sudden not in sudoers anymore23:36
Daisuke_Laptopso on the plus side, you still have an admin user, and you can secure things by default with other users being limited.  and that's A Good Thing (TM)23:36
mmance(might have been owned)23:36
meoxim trying out konversation to make shure it works23:37
mith_i have a monitor and a tv plugged in the vide card. can i show the tv screen on my monitor as a simple window?23:37
Daisuke_Laptopthen you could have a problem...  i have no clue how that would work23:37
Daisuke_Laptopmith_: uh...  that's tv output23:37
meoxalso im trying to get the IRC chat here http://live.pirillo.com i know it uses wildryde can i get the chat on konversation?23:37
Daisuke_Laptopif you had an INPUT card, you could do it that way23:38
mith_it's a tv out23:38
Daisuke_Laptopmith_: yeah, tv *out*23:38
Daisuke_Laptopnot in23:38
Daisuke_Laptopyou're not getting tv on your monitor that way, unfortunately23:39
pulaskiicanhasadmin, thanks I got it to work my moving myremvoe_all.py to ~/23:39
Daisuke_Laptopmeox: if you knew the address of the irc server, you hsould be alright connecting through konversation23:39
icanhasadminpulaski: great :) glad it worked out23:39
meoxhow do i find the wyldryde IRC adress23:39
icanhasadminSo, it appears I already have fglrx installed and working properly, go figure.23:39
icanhasadminDoes that mean compiz should work without glx loaded?23:40
mith_i have searched for it or something in dcop about my tv screen...and googled it...hmm ... it looks like i must write a program my own for it :)23:40
Daisuke_Laptopmith_: are you just not listening?23:40
Daisuke_LaptopTV-OUT means it OUTPUTS a video signal TO the tv.  it DOES NOT input a signal FROM the tv.23:41
Daisuke_Laptopmeox: try irc.wyldride.org (i think)23:41
icanhasadminOH, nevermind. apparently i have to start compiz and tell it not to check for glx.. YOU COULD HAVE TOLD ME THAT y'know ;) ;)23:41
mith_i know that...i don't watch the tv programs...i know it's output... i'm not stupid... my tv works as a secondary monitor23:41
Daisuke_Laptopokay, your question didn't make any sense23:42
icanhasadminoo.. or i can just add the fglrx driver to the whitelist in compiz...23:42
mith_and i want a small window on my primary monitor the actually pic inside that...which shows what's going on my secondary monitor (it's the tv)23:42
Daisuke_Laptopyou want a thumbnailed version of the output to the second monitor23:43
mith_yes yes :)23:43
Daisuke_LaptopNOW i understand, my apologies23:43
icanhasadminWait, mith, can't you just.. turn your head and look at it?23:43
* icanhasadmin grins23:43
Daisuke_Laptopin that case, i have absolutely no idea23:43
mith_icanhasadmin:  there is a wardrobe between my pc and my tv...23:44
icanhasadminmith_: now i see your predicament23:45
icanhasadminwhat video drivers you use?23:45
mith_icanhasadmin: the newest restricted nvidia driver (from envy)23:46
icanhasadminAh, there's a subject I know absolutely nothing about. again, very sorry :/23:47
icanhasadminbrb, need reboot x23:47
mith_hmm it looks like i can do this with vlc i've googled for other words...23:49
=== JoshOvki_ is now known as JoshOvki
ubotuenvy is not needed or supported. Use the Resticted Manager to install binary drivers and see « /msg ubotu binarydriver »23:52
jhutchinsmith_: Interesting, vlc within the same system?23:53
mith_Daisuke_Laptop: okay i will remove it....23:55
mith_jhutchins: i don't know, but it can get a chance...23:56
jhutchinsmith_: I think you would have to have a secondary output from the actual program redirected to your other desktop.23:57
mith_jhutchins: yes i found the option in vlc, i test it in a few moments23:58
icanhasadminSo compiz won't start23:59
icanhasadminfglrx is well, i even whitelisted it for compiz23:59
icanhasadmineven tried skip check (if my syntax was right)23:59
icanhasadmingives me the classic "Checking for texture_from_pixmap: not present." error23:59
