Kaevikgreat now the windows cd won't boot -.-;00:00
Kaevikwhy is the initial wireless encryption type Wep anyway?00:06
Dr_willis_what should it be>?00:07
Kaevikyou'd figure it would come using wpa  now adays00:07
Dr_willis_what if your hardware dosent support wpa.00:07
Kaevikbut no encryption = web encryption.00:07
Dr_willis_Hmm.. THere is no encryption, then theres wep which is the lowest enctyption.00:09
Dr_willis_I thought.00:09
Dr_willis_I have some devices that cant handle wep.00:09
Dr_willis_but i rarely use wireless..00:09
Kaevikyeas bnut I am not switching my router to wep from wpa just because linux doesn't want to use wpa by default -.-;00:11
Dr_willis_so switch linux... big deal....00:12
* Dr_willis_ thinks this is getting in to the ranting and raving stage.00:12
basicjayhumble hello00:13
Kaevikwell so far in all of my experinces with linux, the os is as faulty if nor more so then windows, and anything can cause your system to not be bootable on restarting it.00:13
Dr_willis_Kaevik,  ive had just as many issues with windows. But to each their own...00:14
Kaevikseems like I'm waisting my time trying to reinstall kubuntu , figure it may do this random oops can;t find os when I reboot...00:14
Dr_willis_linux lets you get under the hood and figure out whats wrong, and  fix things.. windows  makes that much harder.00:15
Kaevikwindows may have serious security and stability problems, but they usually down end up killing the whole thing so it does not boot.00:15
Kaevikall from adept trying to do a version update of itself00:16
Kaevikwhen I did the wireless card thing I went to install some packages needed for the firmware first, but that ended up installing/updating like 150 items insted of just the 3.00:18
Dr_willis_short answer : use what you want.  if 150 items needed updateing.. then they needed updateing.00:21
basicjayI don't see anything wrong with knowing how to do something different...00:21
Dr_willis_Dont expect a big huge bunch of people in here to try to convince you of anything.00:22
basicjayLinux teaches us to think differently doing the same thing, as you could do in Windows..00:22
Dr_willis_basicjay,  with Linux it pays to learn the Fundamentals. :)00:22
basicjayI totally agree.00:22
Dr_willis_Then you can easially go from one disrto to another.00:22
Dr_willis_Testing out Sidux at the moment on several of my machines00:22
basicjayand sometimes the fundamentals are missed...and using Linux may force some people to revisit, or visit...00:23
basicjayjust my humble 2 cent opinion.00:24
Dr_willis_people have been trained to 'not think' way too much  these days. in their relationship with computers.00:24
Kaevikwell I was told that what happend to me here should never happen, but it did...00:24
KaevikI don't even see a link between adept updating itself to all of a sudded grub can't boot anything.00:26
Dr_willis_its possible a kernel update did somthing.. but youve given no specifics.. and i doubt if specifics would help anyway...00:26
Dr_willis_i tend to use apt-get or synaptic in most cases.. i rarely use adept - its just awkward.00:27
Kaevikall that happend is adept was running a version update of adept, but it errore, so I went to redo it and it could not run saying it was still running, rebooted and then no os found basicly.00:27
Dr_willis_if the bios reported 'no os found' - sounds like a hardware dieing issue to me.  Thats the message ive seen when a hd dies, or  its a totally new OS.00:29
Kaevikgrub did Error 15: File not found trying to mount the boot partion (root)00:29
Kaevikand now I have to reinstall -.-;00:30
Dr_willis_Or learn to fix grub from a live cd.00:30
Kaevikand redo all of the wireless card enabling and then try again to get wpa working.00:31
Dr_willis_sounds like the menu.lst may be looking for the wrong files, or the  update-grub command some how errored/crashed/dudent run succesuffly00:31
Dr_willis_If this was the first system update, there proberly was a new kernel released, which added a new entry to grub00:31
KaevikI reinstalled grub using the livecd nothing changed. and looking at what grub is doing to try to boot changd nothing.00:31
Kaevikeverything looks like it should work, it just didn't find anything00:32
Dr_willis_Ive seen issues with  grub and error 15 when its some how looking on the wrong hard drive00:33
Dr_willis_some times if you have a external usb drive, or others - it may set the #'s wrongly. ehere hd0 becomes hd1 and so forth.00:33
Dr_willis_ive seen where the    /boot/grub/device.map00:35
Dr_willis_   file -  is incorrect with whats actually on the system also.00:35
Kaevikonly 1 hardrive and I've changed the root to specific partions then it would either says no partion found or error 17 could not mount partion00:36

Dr_willis_ive never done it. Seen some guides here and there.. it looked a bit over-complex, when i could just grab a  install cd.01:00
Possu1I am considering moving from Windows to sharing Windows along with flavor of Linux. I like Ubuntu because of it's simplicity but I have to ask about the differences between kde and gnome01:00
Possu1and why you use either01:00
Possu1and what are the advantages to both01:00
Dr_willis_I like the more features in KDE.01:00
Possu1is it easier to configure?01:01
Dr_willis_You can easially install both on a ubuntu system and try them both out.01:01
DnOberonso do I and I'm in the same boat you're in possu01:01
Dr_willis_KDE has more configuration options.01:01
Possu1I have used xfce01:01
DnOberonso easy to switch between the two01:01
Possu1so im not new to linux itself01:01
Dr_willis_DnOberon,  Trivial to switch.01:01
Dr_willis_on the KDM/GDM login screen thers a session menu. Pick the one to use.01:01
Dr_willis_You can have the XFCE desktop installed aso. and it will be in that menu as well01:02
Dr_willis_ You can Mixx and match/combine apps from gnome and kde and xfce also.01:02
DnOberonhm well I've been having trouble getting and burning a good  copy of the install cd, so hopefully installing it via bootstrap helps01:02
draikHow do I increase the hard drive size for VMware?01:02
Apple_CatYou could even have them both running at the same time, or all three01:02
Dr_willis_Or you can build your own desktop from othe rwindow managers and tools01:02

Apple_Cathttp://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Screenshots, I'd use it over vmware unless you have a good reason not to01:08
Dr_willis_dennister,  there is that bootdisk.com web site. :)01:09

techbwhi all, just wanted to know is there any way that I can get better fonts for kubuntu 6.06?06:40
ubotuFont installation basics here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FontInstallHowto - No fonts in Flash? Install "msttcorefonts" (from !Multiverse), "gsfonts", and "gsfonts-x11". No fonts in MPlayer? see !MPlayer07:00
Apple_Catonly 20 minutes too slow -_-07:00
techbwthanx for the link.07:01
lanoxxmy dvd is not playing any sound anymore, im playing with kaffeine, it worked untill i did a cold reboot just a few minutes ago07:02
lanoxxsound is working in kaffeine if i play mp307:02
lanoxxwhat could be the reason?07:02
techbwoh! by the way, not font installation, what I am looking for is to set font redering to smoothe fonts a little. I have lcd display and fonts don't look right07:03
ubotuSorry, I don't know anything about kaffeine - try searching on http://ubotu.ubuntu-nl.org/factoids.cgi07:04
Apple_Catand sound is working in every other app ?07:05
pat5startechbw: check out this url: http://themasterplan.in/2007/07/15/sexy-smooth-fonts-on-kubuntu07:07
lanoxxamarok works too07:07
Apple_Cathave you tried changing the sound driver from auto to oss,alsa, pulseaudio ?07:08
techbwi have been there, the problem my config has many lines where the autohinter can be inserted, and not really sure on where to insert it, what I have dont now is to run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig"07:09
techbwseems to automatically add autohint to .fonts.conf file07:09
lanoxxneither works07:10
techbwalthough when I actually go and check file, the autohint is not with in the ~/.fonts.conf file07:10
lanoxxsystem sound works too by the way, like kde is playing error sounds07:11
Carutsuhow do I clear a crash with Adept?07:12
lanoxxwell sound with kaffeine is jittering actually, when i play mp3s07:13
lanoxxwith vlc i get the msg unable to open dvd:// now07:14
pat5startechbw: not sure what to tell you then, I followed the instructions there and ended up with beautiful fonts, better than any other OS I've used since, was hoping that would work the same for you07:16
techbwIt should work, must just finish reading the whole page, I thought I had already been to this page, as there is another site, with a similar name for the html page.  I followed the step by step, and ended up having to re-install, as the whole system crashed, and I am new to linux so did not know how to get it back up07:17
techbwnow lets see ctrl+alt+bckspc07:20
=== stephen is now known as techbw
techbwwith that fix on the link u gave me, makes my fonts look out of focus...with blured edges07:23
techbwwhat is your default font used in your window env.07:23
pat5startechbw: I use freesans, I like that font07:27
techbwI am fond of tahoma, would the font redering on the default fonts, go out the window with this fix?  or does it work on all fonts07:28
techbwwould i be able to copy fonts from my windows machine, to the linux machine?07:30

Ar-PharazonHi, I'm sorry if this offends anyone but I want to make my kubuntu as insecure as possible.09:57
Tm_TAr-Pharazon: umm, what for if I may ask?09:57
Ar-PharazonMy logic is, A: I don't have anything worth securing on my computer and B: Security invariably comes at some cost of my time and/or effort, though negligibly small at times.09:58
Tm_TAr-Pharazon: false and false09:59
Ar-PharazonWhat do you mean?09:59
Tm_TAr-Pharazon: as in, it takes time to make your system insecure09:59
Ar-PharazonYeah, I realize that.09:59
Tm_Tbut it's secure just like that, no time required09:59
Ar-PharazonHowever that effort is finite and constant. The cost of security is a function of use.10:00

frank23squixl: you can't repair hardware damage. If you have bad blocks, buy a new hard drive13:36

squixli did following:13:38
frank23squixl: on most newer hard drive, the drive does this automatically with some spare blocks it has, your's may have run out of spare blocks13:38
squixlis it possible to check/mark the badblocks, and use the drive?13:39

neverendingo_[ifr0g]: don't know much about that, but did you try Magic Rescue? should be in the repos17:23
flipstarsivaji: you can use nmap to scan for any open services17:23
sivajiposingaspopular ya why its doing like that , the other machine running on xp17:23
[ifr0g]neverendingo_, tx, will give that a try.17:23

Vermuxcan Samba be used with kubuntu?17:51
geniieustad: For Host put the ip of the printer17:51
flipstarErickj92: in *ubuntu gcc is the default compiler17:51
Erickj92flipstar, is it good?17:52
jessicasmaba can  be used with kubuntu17:52
jessicajust go to remote places17:52
flipstarErickj92: sure.. depends on your needs17:52
jessicahow can i upgrade to hardy from gutsy17:53
Erickj92flipstar, i just wanna start developing useful programs in kubuntu. can you reocmend good tutorials?17:53
flipstarErickj92: depends on the language you choose i always recommend google :P17:53
Erickj92flipstar, C++17:53
Erickj92and with google, i get loads of useless sites17:54
JucatoErickj92: GCC (The GNU Compiler Collection) is *the* (but not the only) compiler for Linux. it has C++ (through g++)17:54
Jucatobut take note that it is only a compiler. it doesn't come with an IDE like Visual Crap17:54
Jucatoer.. Visual C++17:54
ere4siErickj92: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=333867 is a good start17:54
Erickj92Jucato, i dont use Visual C++.17:55
Erickj92feels like a waste of time17:55
neverendingoErickj92: if you mean kde programms, you should also look at techbase.kde.org17:55
flipstarjessica: i would  use update-manager -d > #ubuntu+1 is the hardy channel17:55
giksawafte installing kubuntu and updates I got the following message: There was an error commiting changes. Possibly there was a problem downloading some packages or the commit would break packages.17:56

Jucatospecially since I was almost asleep18:01
Erickj92taht i can type the source into18:01
JucatoErickj92: you can use an advanced (super) text editor like Kate, or KDevelop which is a full blown IDE (that uses an embedded Kate for text editing)18:02
giksawflipstar: ok. I did dpkg --configure -a18:02
Jucato(though KDevelop for simple C++ projects, imho, is overkill)18:02
Erickj92Jucato, i would like one taht is all in one, instead18:02

sammyhas anyone ended up with X starting in a different resolution every time you boot? sometimes I get a 1280x1024 virtual screen with a 1024x768 resolution, sometimes both are 1280x1024, sometimes both are 1024x768 :( it's so odd18:36
flipstarsammy: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FixVideoResolutionHowto#head-9a8fa8e79e2458de1eb69eadb2c97a633be81a4218:37

gingeHi all. Just installed kde4.0.2 from gnome, and it won't let me log in through kdm4. Anyone seen this before?18:44
lovrewhen i write init 0, do all programs quit normally, or is it just a reset signal for the processor?18:45
Riddellginge: can't log in to anything?18:45
gingeRiddell: I get kdm but when I log in it immediately returns to the kdm login again18:46
gingeRiddell: also all session types I choose do the same18:47
sammyflipstar: that's a handy guide, but I've tried it's suggestions already. there's no virtual line in my xorg.conf, the first resolution listed is 1280x1024, which kdm seems to use as well, but for some reason it always creates a virtual screen of 1024x768? should it be necessary for me to add a 'virtual 1280 1024"? is it irrelevant if I should and I should just try it anyway? :P18:47
Riddellginge: what does .xsession-errors say?18:48
flipstarsammy: which graphic card/drivers you have installed ? maybe its an problem there18:49
sammynv drivers with a geforce2 mx - by far, nothing fancy.18:49
sammyedid seems to work just fine18:50
gingeRiddell: (sabayon-apply): Fatal exception! Exiting abnormally. ... File "/usr/sbin/sabayon-apply", line 10618:50
sammyand it honors my 1280x1024 mode request18:50
Riddellginge: sounds like a gnome bug that one18:50
gingeRiddell: damned gnome.18:51
icewatermansammy: in monitor section try adding         Option          "PreferredMode" "1280x1024@60"18:52
icewatermanand add a modeline named 1280x1024@6018:52
sammyicewaterman: never heard of that option. lemme give it a try. (if you don't mind I'll use my 1280x1024@85 hz modeline)18:54
icewatermansammy: as long as you add the appropriate modeline it doesnt matter18:55
sammyicewaterman: excellent. brb18:56

crashhandlerchinese fonts still cant be rendered properly in konqueror!18:57
crashhandlerbut no problem with firefox18:57
geniicrashhandler: Have you tried View ... Set Encoding ... Manual ... And then choosing one of the Chinese fonts from there?19:00
crashhandlergenii^  ive tried every set of chinese encoding there,but no luck,it still shows boxes19:00
geniicrashhandler: Did you install xfonts-intl-chinese package?19:02
crashhandlergenii^  yes19:03
crashhandlerive just installed opera19:04
crashhandlerand chinese chars are shown properly19:04
crashhandlerthis is sad ,hahaa...because konqueror is lighter and faster19:04
flipstardid you restarted konqueror ?19:04
crashhandlereven ive restarted pc19:04
flipstarwould had been too easy anyway :)19:05
crashhandlerand also decharged the bios battery ^_^;19:05
flipstarcrashhandler: you can set some fonts in konqueror>fonts19:06
flipstarthere is an option for language specific encoding19:08
sammyicewaterman: the xorg log said that "NV(0): Option "PreferredMode" is not used", which is okay, because I found I had specified 1280x1024x85 not 1280x1024@85 for my first modeline in my screen section :) editing that fixed the resolution in both kdm and X once I started my session. why usplash ignores my settings in usplash.conf is another story.19:08
crashhandlerflipstar^  no luck.i have changed the standard fonts from dejavu to simhei,but still got boxes!!19:08
sammywhat have we learned today, kids? 10 years of editing X's config files and there's still a 99% chance, when something is wrong, that it's a user error :)19:08
flipstarhm it should take the settings from systemsetting>language anyway i guess19:10
KalElhi... is there a chan for kubuntu hardy heron like #ubuntu+1 for ubuntu hardy heron?19:11
flipstaryep.. #ubuntu+1 :)19:11
KalElok thanks19:12
rolandhello everyone19:13
rolandcould some1 help me with "dcop communication error"19:13
rolandi face this error whenever i open most of the applications i have..!19:13
rolandand in the end it asks me to check if "dcopserver" program is running19:13
icewatermansammy: dunno about uspash19:15
icewatermansammy: i had a similar problem just 2 days ago19:15
sammyicewaterman: that's okay. if it wants to draw the kubuntu splash at 1600x1200, it can knock itself out. thanks for the suggestions, I think that option might work on other drivers, like the nvidia, but not the nv19:15
flipstarsammy: you can specify the splash size in menu.lst from grub..19:16
sammyI haven't started trying to play any nifty 3d games yet, so I haven't bothered to try the binary driver.19:17
icewatermansammy: i get the Option "PreferredMode" is not used" as well but if i skip it, it will not give me 1280x102419:17
sammyflipstar: I'll try that, and if it flat-out ignores resolution specified in the usplash.conf, I'll see if someone has already filed a bug19:17
icewatermanso it seems to be lying19:17
sammyicewaterman: interesting! do you use nv or nvidia? or another driver?19:17
icewatermansammy: radeon19:18
icewatermanbecause of their open source drivers i do not by nvidia anymore19:18
icewatermanthe open source ati drivers i mean19:18
icewatermannvidia can screw their binary shit somewhere else.19:18
sammyicewaterman: well, just to stick to the  'only changing one thing at a time' I commented out the line when I fixed my mistake, so it doesn't look like it does anything on the nv driver, not for me, anyway. 'worked as advertised'19:18
rolandcould some1 help me with "dcop communication error"19:18
icewatermanroland: logout, login and then hope it works again :)19:19
flipstarsammy: for e.g. adding vga=795 into kernel line in menu.lst will make the bootsplash 1024x1024 .. just google for it :)19:19
noodles12i got jre installed for firefox. but it doesn't work for konqueror? do i install it again thru konqueror?19:19
sammyicewaterman: I remember feeling the same way over the last few years about nvidia and ati, but I haven't purchased a video card in... many, many years.19:19
rolandicewaterman,  did tht for the last 1 week.. same issue19:19
icewatermanroland: clean /tmp19:19
rolandicewaterman,  how do i do tht19:20
icewatermanroland: logout, press ctrl+alt+f119:20
icewatermanlogin as normal user19:20
icewatermansudo to root19:20
icewatermanstop kdm19:20
flipstaricewaterman: nvidia binary driver works great here :=)19:20
sammyflipstar: oh, I'm not doubing you, I'm sure that will work, I just didn't know if it somehow uses a combination of vga settings on the kernel line and it's configuration file, or just ignores it's conf file completely, which is misleading19:20
rolandicewaterman,  how do i stop kdm19:20
icewatermanroland: /etc/init.d/kdm stop19:21
icewatermanthen remove all there is in /tmp19:21
sammynoodles12: when you say you got jre installed for firefox, did you use a package manager or install from the command line? or did you do the entire install through firefox?19:21
rolandicewaterman,  and then i start it back up?!19:21
icewatermanroland: cd /tmp19:21
icewatermanfind -exec rm -rf '{}' \;19:21
icewatermanonly in /tmp, otherwise it is going to hurt!19:22
euskedaihi how connect to printer in windows equipment19:22
icewatermanroland: /etc/init.d/kdm start19:22
icewatermanroland: see if problem is gone19:22
rolandso tht mean i logout get back in.. sudo to rood /kdm stop then cd /tmp then find -exec rm -rf .... then /kdm start19:23
noodles12sammy: i think i just clicked the packages from adept_manager when i first installed kubuntu. it was awhile ago19:23
flipstareuskedai: install smbclient then K-button .. System ... Printing ... select New Printer ... Select Internet Printing Protocol (IPP)19:23
icewatermanroland: yes, and if this is a multi-user station, you should logout from the console again19:23
sammynoodles12: as far as I know, installing the jre through the package manager should make it available to both firefox and konqueror, but I'm going to go verify that.19:24
icewatermanotherwise someone else might use your root-account via ctrl+alt+f1 until you shut the box down19:24
gary_Does anyone know how to transfer files to and from a Windows mobile device in Ubuntu?19:24
coreymon77gary_: windows mobile as in a pocket pc?19:26
gary_coreymon77: I guess.. Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional19:26
sammygary_: which windows mobile device? are you trying usb or bluetooth?19:26
rolandok icewaterman  ill give it a try19:27
coreymon77gary_: you heard of synce19:27
sammyis there a setting on your device to put it into different usb modes? some phones have two modes, one for syncing with the software it expects to see running on the other end, and one as a usb drive, which should show up in ubuntu just like a usb key or usb hard drive19:27
gary_coreymon77: Think so, but i really dont want to synchronize the phone. Just transfer files.19:28
coreymon77sammy: or he could just use the synce package19:28
gary_Can i do that with synce?19:28
coreymon77gary_: oh, its a phone huh?19:28
coreymon77gary_: does it use activesync on windows?19:29
gary_Uhm... yes?19:29
gary_And yes..19:29
coreymon77gary_: okay, then this should work19:29
sammycoreymon77: I assumed it was. though, I'm better with blackberries and nokias than windows mobile devices. I didn't know synce did file xfer too. nifty.19:29
gary_k.. I'm all ears.19:29
gary_I'm using Kitchensync to synchronize my Sony ERicsson phone with Kontact atm. Can i still do that if i install synce?19:30
coreymon77gary_: you might, i dunno19:31
coreymon77gary_: ive only used it to transfer files to my pda19:31
coreymon77gary_: i think you can use anything to sync19:31
gary_sammy: Windows mobile only has one mode.19:31
coreymon77gary_: this just gets the thing connected19:31
gary_So sudo apt-get install synce and i'm home free?19:32
coreymon77gary_: ya, this just allows the device to communicate with your computer19:32
coreymon77gary_: no19:32
gary_Darn it.. I knew it wasn't that easy.19:32
coreymon77gary_: is it ever? :P19:33
gary_I guess not..19:33
coreymon77gary_: okay then19:36
coreymon77first thing we gotta do is add a few repostories19:37
gary_I'm reading up on synce19:37
gary_synce is already in my apt-cache19:38
gary_Found a wiki19:38
coreymon77gary_: okay, you can use that19:38
coreymon77gary_: follow a wiki for it19:38

ImLizHello all, does one have execute the hplip.run command as superuser??19:42
Erickj92flipstar, it told me to ask here on the website for KDevelop19:42
ImLizmeaning "sudo sh hplip-2.8.2.run" or just "sh hplip-2.8.2.run" ?19:44
flipstarwithout sudo will install for current user only19:44
flipstari guess19:45
ImLizoh ok, thx flipstar19:45
JasonWardhow do I do this. on windows to print an ascii character I'd type  alt+code. how does it work on linux?19:46
flipstarJasonWard: try kcharselect19:46
Erickj92how do i build a project in KDevelop?19:47
JasonWardflipstar: ?19:47
JasonWardi want to do this.  alt+81  and then it will give me Q19:47
flipstarshift+alt gr + <key> let you choose some special keys19:48
ImLizthe hplip installer said "error: you are running the installer as root and it's highly recommended I run it as a non-root user" guess I have to run it w/o sudo19:50
JasonWardwhat is this altgr? wikipedia also suggests it but I don't have one19:50
acemoJasonWard: should be ur left alt button19:50
flipstarthe alt on right side ..19:51
flipstaracemo: left ?19:51

nicholas_The guidance-power-manager claims my battery is at 0% even it is not. I used kpowermanager while I was on openSUSE, it claimed my battery is at 0% as well. What is the problem? Is it something with the HAL daemon or is my battery damaged?20:26

rolandicewaterman,  hello20:48
rolandicewaterman,  i did wht u asked me to do.. /etc/init.d/kdm stop... it says no such file or directory20:49
flipstarroland: do you have kdm (kde) installed ?20:49
icewatermanroland dont tell me you did run the find command outside /tmp20:50
icewatermanbecause that would have potentially deleted all files on your system...20:50
angasuleflipstar: well, e2label seems to apply to ext2, this is vfat (like all pendrives unless reformatted, AFAIK), and it changes the filesystem label, I need the mount option shortname to be set to winnt (rather than 'lower')20:50
flipstaricewaterman: not without sudo20:50
rolandflipstar,  well this is the first time i use ubuntu.. and it started giving me a dcopserver error...20:50
rolandicewaterman,  no i did tht! then got into cd /tmp... and did the find -exec...20:50
icewatermanfirephoto: i told him to go sudo before because he needed to flush /tmp20:50
mehmetcan anyone knowing c help me?20:51
mehmeti have a problem with my code20:51
icewatermanroland: lets hope so.20:51
icewatermanroland: what does dpkg -l kdm say?20:51
rolandi didnt go sudo20:51
icewatermanroland: do you have kubuntu installed at all?20:52
mehmetis there anyone knowing c?20:52
flipstarangasule: no..its ext3 also see man e2label for details20:52
rolandicewaterman,  ubuntu... i went to ubuntu channel when i stated my problem they said i should ask here20:52
angasuleflipstar: I did see man e2label20:52
flipstarso you read the "e2label - Change the label on an ext2/ext3 filesystem"20:52
icewatermanroland: if you have ubuntu installed then you should be in #ubuntu. ubuntu does not come with kdm but gdm instead20:53
flipstarangasule: oh wait you said vfat..?20:53
angasuleflipstar: ext3 is ext2 + journalling, I know that, so what? I'm dealing with vfat20:53
rolandicewaterman,  they asked me to come here :s20:53
nosrednaekimroland: in recovery console, run "rm .DCOP*" in your homedirectory20:53
rolandnosrednaekim,  recovery console?!20:53
flipstarangasule: then you probably can do this with tune2fs20:53
angasuleflipstar: YES, it's a USB pendrive, they all came with vfat, as I mentioned above, and I want to change a *mount option*, not a partition label20:54
icewatermanroland: well, i dunno if gnome does put temporary files to /tmp at all20:54
=== mehmet is now known as tripoli
flipstarangasule: shortname means label to me ..20:54
nosrednaekimroland: in the login manager... the sessions button->session->failsafe20:54
angasuleflipstar: are you serious?20:54
rolandill give it a try20:54
posingaspopularangasule: you mean, you want to change the mount point20:55
angasuleI'll start from scratch20:55
angasuleI want USB pen drives (one in particular, but in general would be cool), which come with VFAT, to mount using the OPTION shortname=winnt, that is NOT a label, it's a MOUNT OPTION, there is no fstab entry for them since kubuntu uses that pop-up dialog to make it more GUIfied20:56

angasuleposingaspopular: alias? how? where? searching for 'alias' won't be useful :)21:00

icewatermanroland: though again, you are totally wrong here21:05
rolandicewaterman,  well i asked in ubuntu and AGAIN they pointed me here21:05
icewatermanroland: dcop is indeed a kde issue21:05
icewatermanbut you problem is most likely ubuntu related nontheless21:06
icewatermanroland: you might have more luck in #kde21:06
rolandicewaterman,  no lusck again21:13
rolandicewaterman,  when i tried doing tht, it gave me once again... no such file or directory21:13
icewatermanroland: ls -l /etc/init.d/gdm21:13
icewatermanif that one is not there, then you have a problem...21:14
JasonWardhow do I make a file executable?21:14
icewatermanor are not running ubuntu21:14
JasonWardI type21:14
JasonWardchmod u+x b.py21:14
posingaspopular ./file.py21:14
neverendingoangasule: if i understand correctly, the the fourth field in fstab is what you are looking for. you can type in whatever option you need. it just needs to be comma-separated. see man fstab or man mount21:15
JasonWardchmod u+x b.py,    is not setting the executable flag. why?21:16
rolandicewaterman,  its there..21:16
neverendingoJasonWard: try it with u+x, without whitespace21:17
icewatermanroland then run it21:17
icewatermanbut gdm stop/start will not help you with kde issues21:17
JasonWardneverendingo: there is no whitespace in chmod u+x b.py21:18

ahmoshi, can any body tell me why after installing some programmes i don't find an icon for it in the k menu and every time i must run it from terminal,and when i close trminal the programme is closed too?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!23:25
Daisuke_Idofirst thing, one exclamation point is more than enough23:27
Daisuke_Idosecond, what programs, and are you installing them through adept?23:28
ahmosalot,but for example xpenguins23:29
ahmosDaisuke_Ido: where r u?23:33
Daisuke_Idoyou haven't answered the question -_-23:33
Daisuke_Idoare you installing from the repos?23:34
ahmosi have (alot,but for example xpenguins)23:34
Daisuke_Idowell, is there an "other" or "lost and found" in your kmenu?23:34
Daisuke_Idoi ask because i've given up on kde until 4 stops being horrible :)23:35
Jucatoahmos: press Alt+F2, and run "kbuildsycoca" then check the menu if some of those were added to the menu23:36
Daisuke_Idohey, nice :)23:36
Daisuke_Idoi actually didn't know about that23:36
Jucato1. Some programs do not really get added to the menu (like command line stuff, maybe some games).23:36
Jucato2. You might be able to find some apps that can be added to the menu by running "kappfinder" and checking those that you want to add automatically23:37
Jucato3. Worst case scenario, you can add a menu entry for the app yourself, although if it's a command line app, that will be a bit useless23:37
ahmosaha.but kbuildsycoca didn't work23:38
ahmosi can't find kmail to in my k menu23:39
ahmosi must start it with terminal23:39
Jucatoaah Kubuntu removed that because you can find KMail in Kontact23:39
Jucatoyou don't need to start it from the terminal. you can run it from Kontact, or press Alt+F2 and run it from there23:40
ahmosah u r right :)23:40
maroohello, is there a way to browse the itunes store (for podcasts/free non drm music etc) and/or access those phobos urls?23:41
