anom01yhow do I reinstall alsa from scratch ?00:36
ubottuIf 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 !MP300:39
anom01ycool I guess I have to reinstall kubuntu just to get alsa to work, wonderful00:41
epimethanom01y: not necesarily00:41
epimethanom01y: what's the problem?00:41
anom01ywell its been wrekced for 2-3 weeks noone knows how to help me00:42
epimethanom01y: whats wrong?00:42
anom01yI origionally set it up having 2 cards in the computer00:42
anom01y(set up = install kubuntu)00:42
anom01ysince then I have removed a card, and now I am trying to use the onboard00:42
anom01yit works sometimes, and some other's it half ass works, now its not working at all00:43
anom01yand I havent done anything to cause this except reboot the computer00:43
anom01ybut if I reset it might work, although it might half ass work too, as kmix sometimes only shows half of the available volume control knobs, and the maximum volume is not very high00:44
epimethanom01y: have you tried blacklisting the one you removed?00:44
anom01yI dont know, I tried alsaconf, and that didnt work00:44
anom01yhow do I blacklist the other card ?00:45
epimethanom01y: offhand, I don't know... give me a minute00:45
anom01ywow alsa magically started to work ???????00:47
ign0ramusanom0ly: what does the command " sudo asoundconf list " report?00:47
anom01yI just ran alsaconf again and for some reason it worked ?00:47
ign0ramusanom01y: lets make sure you have the right sound card set as default00:48
epimethign0ramus: awesome... *you* help him :-)00:48
anom01yVT82xx is the only card reported00:48
epimethmy sound card problems took a long time to fix ;-)00:48
ign0ramusi'll try... i had problems of my own!00:48
ign0ramusanom01y: then run "sudo asoundconf set-default-card NAMEOFYOURCARD "00:49
ign0ramustype it exactly as it is reported in the previous command00:49
anom01yok thats done00:50
ign0ramusok, finally restart sound server: "sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart"00:51
ign0ramusnow, next time you login, your .conf settings will pull from that card00:52
ign0ramusi have an external Soundblaster hooked up to my stereo in my basement, and switch between that and the onboard in the lappy all the time00:52
ign0ramuscd players are the past.  Hooking up Amarok to your home stereo is awesome00:53

CheezwhizAlright guys.  Question.  I just installed Kubuntu for the first time on a machine with a GeForce FX 5700LE and can't figure out how to get the correct driver.  I attempted to do it through the hardware driver manager, but it didn't take.02:18
KalThaeden[EK]right, only in the US is it not open-source. it depends on the country.02:18
dr_WillisWell its still open sourced.. :) just not legal to have.02:19
KalThaeden[EK]it didn't take with nvidia driver (new)?02:19
CheezwhizFor some reason no02:19
CheezwhizI just restarted again and now my resolution is all out of whack.  Essentially I'm trying to get Compiz working as a way to kind of feel my way around the OS, but this driver issue is driving me nuts...no pun intended02:20

KalThaeden[EK]let me look it up.02:20
CheezwhizIt is, yes.  I wasn't sure if I needed to use the old Legacy driver or get a new driver from nVidia.  I'm thinking they might have the Linux drivers available now.02:20
KalThaeden[EK]they should, but otherwise i would try the binary x.org driver.02:22
CheezwhizHow would I go about obtaining that?02:22
dr_WillisTheres Legacy, the normal, and the new.. for the nvidia drivers02:22
KalThaeden[EK]not the legacy, that is for some of the first cards that nvidia released.02:22
dr_WillisTheres a list somewhere. that tells what cards need what.02:22
Cheezwhizalright.  Off to google.  Thanks for the help.02:22

GithzeraiCheezwhiz: It is FX 5700 as I understand ?02:24
CheezwhizThat's right02:24

KalThaeden[EK]Yes, why?02:28
X2683Just wondering. Your name looked really familiar.02:29
GithzeraiCheezwhiz: why don't u use package manager, it's easier: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx02:29

Githzeraidarcy: did it help ?03:31
marthiI need a help on this03:31
dr_Willis#1 - determine the exact wireless chipset in the thing.03:32
ubottuWireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs03:32
CheezwhizAwesome.  Got it figured out.  My wife doesn't understand my desire to see it, but whatever lol03:33
dr_WillisMy HP laptop had the Broadcom 4310 chipset.. for some reason the b43 modles did not work with it. I had to use ndiswrappers.03:33
dr_WillisCheezwhiz,  the compiz zoom effect. and the 'show previews in panel' are a little  more usefull eyecandy :)03:33
dr_WillisWiggly windows makes my wife dizzy03:33
ubottuccsm is To enable advanced customization of desktop effects in Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy), install 'compizconfig-settings-manager' or 'simple-ccsm'. If you install the latter, a new option will appear in your appearance properties - See also !compiz - Help in #compiz-fusion03:33
CheezwhizI'll check that out03:34
dr_WillisThose are bout the only 2 effects i even enable.03:34
dr_WillisWife likes the zoom so she can zoom in on web pages and stuff easier03:34
CheezwhizWould imagine that that would help get rid of my "books online" induced headaches03:35
tmbgwife likes the pr0n eh?03:35
dr_WillisI still need to track down a Huge monitor I can read my comic books on. :)03:35
tmbgsay, what manual would one look in to figure out how to get konsole to use bash for new shells instead of sh?03:36
dr_WillisHmm.. bash is the default user shell.03:36
dr_Williskonsole has profiles  You can set to launch other shells.03:36
dr_WillisThis is the kde3 konsole we are talking about right?03:37
Githzeraitmbg: default shel is bash, unless u set it different in user configuration.03:38
tmbgoh I'm being stupid. I'm in kubuntu right now, but that was at work in freebsd+kde.03:38
tmbgmy bad03:39
CheezwhizWell....got it installed, got compiz working....the question is, now what? lol03:39
CheezwhizI suppose I should start trying to figure out how to get EQ2 to run with wine or cedega...03:39
dr_WillisThats... sort of sad...03:40
GithzeraiCheezwhiz: now enjoy ;)03:41
CheezwhizWhat's sad? lol03:41
dr_WillisIRC is the ultimate MMORPG03:41
Githzeraidr_Willis: :)03:41
CheezwhizBah.  Used to be.  Course games like Zork used to be the head of the gaming industry too, but you know.03:42
* dr_Willis recalls a ZORK bot once...03:42
darcyGithzerai: yes, thanks. one more thing - I have an rpm file I'm trying to install. I have installed the rpm program to deal with it, but I can't find the program anywhere03:42
bucketheadCrap. I had figured out how to mount smb but I forgot. Can someone point me towards making a script to do it for me?03:42
dr_Willisbuckethead,  if you really want to be lazy the 'smb4k' program lets you browse/mount samba shares.03:43
dr_Willisit actually Mounts them to the users smb4k/ShareName directory. :)03:43
Githzeraidarcy: alien in konsole. But I would strongly suggest that you find propper .deb pacakage if possible.03:43
bucketheadI'd like to build a script so I can push one button and auto-mount everything on home servers.03:43
bucketheadI'll check out smb4k in the mean time.03:43
dr_Willisbuckethead,  you may want to chek out the 'fusesmb' tool also. it basicially 'mounts' the whole 'network neighborhood' to a directory03:44
dr_Willis!info fusesmb03:44
ubottufusesmb (source: fusesmb): filesystem client based on the SMB file transfer protocol. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.8.7-1 (hardy), package size 30 kB, installed size 140 kB03:44
bucketheadThats interesting. How fast is it?03:44
dr_Willisa command like 'fusesmb Network'    and poof the whole Lan is there. :)03:44
dr_Willisif you are worried about speed.. smb is  a bottleneck :)03:45
dr_Willisnot really tested how the fuse is vs the normal mounting..  seemed about the same to me03:45
dr_WillisI tend to toss large avi files all over the place with no hassles.03:45
dr_Willisfor Linxu to Linux - NFS is MUCH faster03:45
bucketheadCan I run them side/side? I need win compatibility..03:46
dr_Willisthis is linux.. of course you can........03:46
dr_WillisI do recall some mention of NFS for windows.. but never did find it.03:46
darcyGithzerai: what is a .deb package - I installed it from the synaptic package manager.03:46
bucketheadHeh. Around the people I know.. Simple is required.03:47
dr_Willisfor simple/quick and easy transfers.. winscp + ssh - is handy.03:47
Githzeraidarcy: I suggested that u find .deb instead of .rpm package u have ;)03:47
dr_Willisbut it may be a bit slower.. but its easy to get going. and almost fool proof. :)03:47
darcyGithzerai: I'm trying to install lightscribe and this is direct from their website.03:48
dr_WillisI got the lightscripe label and otehr tools the other day from their web site.03:48
dr_WillisWorked decently well.. takes 5+ min to make a label however.03:49
Githzeraidarcy: yes, but don't they have a deb package for download also ?03:49
dr_WillisI was pretty sure they had deb packages for the labeler and other package.03:49
cadoodarcy: i just checked they have deb files there as while03:50
darcycadoo: thanks - I'm going there now.03:50
dr_Willisthers 2 packages ya got to get. :)03:51
cadoonice to see a company with good linux support!03:52
darcyThanks a great deal dr_Willis, cadoo and Githzeral03:53
CheezwhizAlright guys.  I'm off for the night.  Gotta get some sleep.  Thanks again for the help and I'm sure I'll see you tomorrow.03:53
dr_WillisHmm theres 2  different lightscribe laberler programs out.. one is shown above.. the other is from the laCie company.. but i cant find a direct link to a .deb on their web site..03:54
dr_Williswget http://uploads.mitechie.com/lightscribe/4l_1.0-r6_i386.deb03:55
dr_Willisis from an 'unoffical' site.. not sure if thats up to date.03:55
darcydr_Willis: thanks - appreciate it03:56
dr_Willisthose label progrms.. are both very basic. but they did the job. :)03:56
=== root is now known as Guest15684
dr_Willisgrab some fancy label templates/images from the lighscribe page to use with the 4L labeler also03:57
bucketheadWhat the .. "mount error: permission denied or not superuser and mount.cifs not installed SUID"  <- I thought I had fstab skills, guess not.03:59
dr_Willisbuckethead, whats giving this?03:59
dr_Willis ls -l /sbin/mount.cifs04:00
dr_Willis-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 23K 2008-06-30 11:57 /sbin/mount.cifs*04:00
dr_WillisLooks like my mount.cifs is 'suid'  I think04:00
bucketheadI figured out how to mount the smb shares again and now i'm trying to make it something that I can mount as user04:00
dr_Willisthe 'user' and 'users' option dosent work eh?04:01
bucketheadI thought the user fstab option gave that o_004:01
dr_Willismay be not for smb/cifs?04:01
dr_Willisor mount.cifs needs to be SUID04:01
mefisto__question about memtest: is it unusual for memtest to sometimes show failures and sometimes pass all the tests? does that suggest my ram is ok but I have some other hardware problem?04:01
dr_WillisI would power off the box.. take out all ram, clean/reseat it.. and try again.. give the pc a good cleaning also...04:02
Githzeraimefisto__: I shouldn't happen anyway. RAM can't "sometimes" be good04:03
mefisto__dr_Willis: clean? you mean the contact pins? just wipe them, remove dust etc?04:03
dr_WillisYes to all of that mefisto__04:03
=== fukkass is now known as toiletwater
dr_WillisIts not as big a deal these days.. but i have seen chips get a little loose.04:04
dr_WillisOne problem PC i had.. had a loose screw... stuck under the motherboard... that caused all kinds of issues..04:04
mefisto__Githzerai: that's what I thought. so if I can sometimes get it to pass, but sometimes utterly fail all tests, it's not the ram but something else04:05
dr_Willisalso with memtest. remove all ram. except for one stick, test that stick by itself..04:05
dr_Willisit may be the ram socket thats bad.04:05

dr_Willisdead mouse on the motheboard... :)04:06
Githzeraimefisto__: Doesn't necessary mean it isn't RAM. Maybe module overheated for a moment (memtest gives it a full use ;) )or something equaly simple but problematic...04:07
mefisto__I'll get my cat to take a look at it :)04:07
bucketheaddr_Willis: If I chown the folder to myself, I can pull it off but it asked my password again.. Kind of defeats the purpose.04:08

bucketheadwhat are you trying to do?04:16
bucketheadfor video, go with gtkpod+04:16
bucketheadFor audio, amarok04:16
Richie086ah ive never used amarok to interact with the ipod04:16
bucketheadThe main reason why I use amarok for music is because it handles all the rest of my music. Provides an easier interface.04:17
Richie086btw ive been a long time linux user that is using kubuntu for my first time.. this is truely an awesome linux distro.. goodbye fedora..04:18
slashquiti like it myself, but i won't even mention what i switched from04:18
nuxilwhy is firefox 2 the same as firefox 3 ?04:20
Richie086it was funny i thought fedora was solid but just recently there were all these little issues that kept popping up that eventually made me take a chance on trying out a different distro.. been using redhat products since 5.104:20
Richie086how is it the same?04:20
slashquitnot sure. my adept lists ff 3 as firefox, but ff2 as firefox-204:20
nuxilfirefox --version and firefox-2 --version shows correct.. but if yo open up the firefoxes and go on "about" you see that ff-2 == ff304:20
Richie086yeah that is weird04:21
slashquit2 == 3? thought that only happened on pentia.04:21
nuxiland i need version 204:21
Richie086whats pentia?04:21
nuxilnot a clue04:22
slashquitmine has listed firefox-3.0 for firefox and firefox-2 for firefox. curious.04:22
nuxilsame here04:22
nuxilff and ff-3.0 is same04:22
slashquitpentia? umm.. very expensive burner elements built by a company in albuquerque.04:22
nuxilslashquit & Richie086, do you got em both installed ?04:23
slashquiti only got 3.0 installed04:23
nuxilcan you try to install 2 and see if you got same problem?04:24
slashquiti missed what the problem was04:25
Richie086actually funny u should mention ff2/3 cuz that was one of the issues i was having with fedora, i had 2 and 3 installed and as my normal user account for the life of me i could not get firefox 3 to launch on my regualar user account even if i went into the install directory and ran it ./firefox it would still run the old version and it was pissing me off..04:25
Richie086i only have 3 installed and kind of plan on keeping it that way04:25
nuxilso you have the same prob04:25
Richie086is that actually the issue ur having?04:26
slashquitok i got 2 and 3 running04:26
Richie086where you ahve two copies installed but only one will launch?04:26
nuxilwell.. i need ff2 but only ff3 is starting04:26
slashquitand two links on the internet directory04:26
slashquitok 2 just crashed04:26
Richie086LOL wow same issue just backwards04:26
nuxileven if i rm ff3 and start ff2, its shown as ff304:26
nuxilits kinda anoying04:27
Richie086and get this, for some reason in ff2 if i entered a search term into the google search to the left of the address bar and hit enter, nothing would happen04:27
slashquitok so loading 2 opens up 304:27
nuxilthere is no version 204:27
Richie086and the back button no longer worked.. i removed and reinstalled same issue.04:28
nuxili need to use a smart card reader and the site only supports version 2.. well.. i havent gotten version 3 to work. the java app dosent start up on that site.04:29
slashquitah i think both versions open up firefox in /usr/bin, but there are ff 2 and 3 scripts, but maybe the main firefox file is the one that's called when you open it up04:30
nuxiltime to hack tha scripts :P04:30
slashquitso i guess it executes the main binaries out of a usr/lib/firefox library04:31
Richie086one thing my roommate mentioned while i was intalling kubuntu in regard tot he firefox issue, look in ur home dir to see if there is a .mozilla directory04:32
nuxilmoz_libdir=/usr/lib/firefox-2 but there is no such dir.. strange04:33
nuxilfrom at /usr/bin/firefox-204:33
Richie086there might be some kinda script that runs when u launch firefox that says where to look..04:33
nuxilRichie086, them all are just scripts04:33
slashquiti got a .mozilla folder04:34
slashquitdunno richie, it looks like it opens up some sort of library, but i know jack about scripts and *nix in general04:35
Richie086let me look @ mine04:37
nuxillol..i have no idea what i just did,, but its started up.. no java though04:38
slashquitmaybe if you only run one at a time it will work04:40
Richie086welll while its running check top to see if it shows the path its running under04:41
slashquitok so it looks like if you're already running it and you try to run another app, it defaults to whichever one is loaded04:42
Richie086java is easy enough to get working again04:42
slashquiti would say run one at a time, otherwise maybe you could run one under another account04:43
nuxilLOL yea..there is def something strange..if i open ff2. then open ff3. ff3 becomes ff2 LOL and VS04:44
slashquitall versions must use the same external variables and objects and all that shared memory stuff with the OS04:45
Richie086sounds that way04:45
slashquitexecuting it checks with the code to see if it's loaded, if it is, then it traps it and spawns another process rather than reload it. i would guess maybe it could be run under a different account tho.04:45
slashquitmaybe like with a runas or sudo or something it could work04:46
slashquitlike i said, i know jack about linux. i just installed it like a week ago.04:48
slashquitreal operating systems are new to me04:49
nuxilwell. welcome to the linux world :) noob :p04:49
slashquitwhy thank you very much04:49
nuxilok. now i need to get java working again04:50
slashquityou might have to install the java plugin via adept04:52

ubottuIf 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 !MP307:10

rasmusHi! I have some problem usng a external harddrive.08:58
rasmusi've got a LaCie usb 2,0 disk. Before i had some problems mounting the drive but that is solved thanx to some threads on a forum09:00
greeklegendgo on..09:00
rasmusSo, now the problem is that i can't transfer files containing "bizarr" letters like &, åäö, and such09:00
greeklegendi don't think the FAT filesystem supports putting letters like that in filenames? am i wrong?09:01
greeklegenddo you really need to use these characters?09:01
rasmusWell, i think it's a NTFS system09:01
rasmusWell, since i'm swedish åäö for exemple is pretty well used in file-names09:02
greeklegendNTFS? hmm i'll try making a file on my ntfs partition09:02
rasmusthe thing is that i want to back up my harddrive, and it's not relly conventient to change names on files ;-).09:03
greeklegendyeah i gotcha09:03
greeklegendok well i managed to make a file with the ä09:03
rasmusah, i see09:04
greeklegendwhat are you using to copy the stuff?09:04
rasmusso, do you have any idea of what i sould do09:04
rasmusWell i used dolphin and konqueror09:04
rasmusand they both say that they can't write to the disk09:04
rasmusMy old lacie-disk generates no problems though09:04
greeklegendwhat kubuntu version are you using?09:05
rasmusgutsy gibbon09:05
greeklegendhmm ok i can do it but i'm on hardy09:07
greeklegendcan you copy the files in the terminal?09:07
rasmus well, my old harddrive has a fat partition. Is it possible for me to format my hardrive to fat, using linux?09:07
rasmusHow do i use the terminal for copying?09:07
greeklegendwe certainly can format your harddrive to fat but lets try that later09:08
rasmusso the copying then09:08
greeklegendahh lets say you have a file called /home/ramus/äää09:08
greeklegendand your harddrive is mounted at /media/harddrive09:08
greeklegendtry "cp /home/ramus/äää /media/harddrive"09:08

rasmuspleas wait and i'll try09:10
rasmusthat's strange, it says it cant find the file on my harddrive, i'll check the spelling09:12
greeklegendhang on, are you copying files off the harddrive onto your computer or from your computer to your harddrive09:14
rasmusfrom my computer. For some reason the konsole don't find any of my files i'm trying to open or copy. I guess i have miss spelled something09:15
rasmusbut i can't see what09:15
hateballTry tab-completing them :)09:15
greeklegendyou're in the wrong directory?09:15
rasmusthat could be the reason. Should i be in the "copy from"- directory?09:16
greeklegenddo you know how to change directory in the console?09:16
rasmuswell, appearently i was there09:16
rasmusYes, and i'm in my home-folder09:17
rasmusthere i have my file "a" (can try "ä" later), but it wouln't find it09:17
greeklegendtry ./a instead of a09:17
rasmusthe dot before the slash?09:18
rasmussorry, does not work :-(09:18
greeklegendis the file there if you type "ls"?09:19
rasmusi wrote this:  cp /home/ramus./a /media/harddrive09:19
rasmusNo sorry09:19
rasmuscp /home/ramus/a /media/LaCie09:19
rasmusThat was the first i tried.09:20
greeklegendok that should have worked09:20
hateballcould try adding a / tho09:20
hateball /media/LaCie/09:20
greeklegendhow are you creating this file? if it doesn't show up in ls something must be seriously wrong...09:21
rasmusno, sorry, didn't work. But now it's not the drive but the file on my computer that is not working. Strange, i'll try to copy it some where else on my drive09:22
rasmuswell, i copied to my home-folder using konqueror09:22
hateballtouch x && cp x x209:22
rasmusand konqueror opens it all right09:22
greeklegendok how about we start from the begining09:23
rasmusthis is really strange. What can be wrong? I tried copy to another place on my computer. It keeps on telling me the source file don't exist09:23
greeklegendcd ~09:23
greeklegendtouch ./abc09:23
greeklegendcp ./abc /media/laCie09:24
hateballcd ~09:24
hateballtouch x && cp x x209:24
hateballis easier :p09:24
hateballshould give you x and x2 in the current dir09:24
rasmuswhait, should i write "touch ./abc" or just "./abc", sorry for my lack of english-knowlidge09:25

greeklegendlol good to have someone making sure i don't say anything wrong09:26
rasmusthat worked09:26
greeklegendok now let's try...09:27
rasmusso, ill try to make a file containing a ä then09:27
elo_guys i used to run kubuntu feisty and it's been a long time since i have personalized kubuntu, but i recently installed 8.04 and am kinda lost on a few things09:28
rasmusthat didn't work09:28
arkygeek_hi.  in kde4, i don't get focus unless i click on the title bar of a window.... how do i set it so that I get focus by clicking anywhere on a window?09:28
hateballSo it's probably been mounted with ISO-blabla instead of UTF-8 then09:28
rasmussome thing like "not valid or complet" (i get error messages in swedish)09:28
elo_for .deb files i remember having the ability to right click and choose to install it, on this new kubuntu i dont have that choice and have to use the console to do it. also i recently installed a few programs using the repositories and am unable to find any of them in the menu (i'm running the kde4 version)09:29
rasmuswell, i tried changing that before when mounting i dolphin. Didn't make any differens but maybe i should try again09:29
hateballtry mounting in the terminal09:29
rasmusah, great, how do i do?09:29
hateballI'll skip the sudo, fill in when you're prompted09:30
hateballunmount /media/lacie09:30
hateballor whatever it was09:30
greeklegendits umount i think :P09:30
greeklegendnot unmount09:30
hateballhold on!09:31
rasmusunmount didn't work, so i guess your right ;-)09:31
greeklegendsorry i have to go to dinner....09:31
greeklegendi'll leave you in hateball's good hands09:31
rasmusok, thanx a lot for all the help!09:31

rasmusno, it's unmounted09:31
hateballmount -o iocharset=utf8 /dev/sdWhatever /some/dir/09:32
hateballI think...09:32
* hateball ponders09:32
rasmushehe, so, what about sd whatever?09:32
hateballWell the disk is discovered as /dev/sdb or /dev/sdc or something09:32
rasmusso i change it to the apropriate name?09:33
rasmussdb1 could that be right?09:33
hateballif you have one hdd in the system, it's quite likely09:33
rasmusand "some/dir" what, do i write there?09:34
hateballthen it needs to be mounted in to an existing dir09:34
hateballso.... mkdir /media/usbdisk09:34
hateballor something09:34
hateballand mount to that09:34
rasmusso then i write: mount -o iocharset=utf8 /dev/sdb1 /media/usbdisk?09:36
hateballassuming I got the syntax right09:36
hateballdont normally force charsets...09:37
rasmusyou've got!09:37
rasmusok :-)09:37
rasmusso, now i try to copie again right?09:37
hateballyou could just touch /media/yourdir/åäö09:37

hateballThe bad touch09:38
yao_ziyua1am i right that kde 4.1 beta packages are not authenticated?09:39
ocs__hi. how can i force an x window app (my_app) to be displayed at position x,y on the screen ?09:39
rasmusso i'll do that directly to the usbdrive?09:39
hateballYe rasmus09:41
rasmusthat seemed to work, i'll check09:41
rasmushm, the file is there!09:41
rasmusso, should i try to move a file with konqueror maybe09:41
hateballcd ~ && touch åäö && cp åäö /media/disk/09:41
hateballso you can see if it can copy09:42
hateballbut sure, konqueror should work as well :)09:42
rasmushey! Your my heroe for the day!09:42
hateballnajs ;d09:42
rasmusso how do i keep it mounting this way?09:43
rasmusWill it remeber?09:43
hateballI think there's a way to configure the automounter...09:43
hateballBut dunno how09:43
hateballor you can add the drive to /etc/fstab09:43
hateballto have it permanently mounted09:43
rasmusok, but what happens if i wsitch it of?09:44
hateballor you just make a little script that does the mounting09:44
hateballNot much, it wont be accessible is all09:44
rasmusok, great. So how do i add it?09:44
hateballlets see09:45

gas001remove the synaptics section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf10:15
slobad23is there any reason why i would lose the outside part of my windows ?10:18
waylandbillgas001: and to enable it later, put it back in.. so I would want to comment it out. Easy enough.10:18
slobad23the minimize/maximize and close part around the window has vanishe10:18
waylandbillslobad23: the window decorations? are you running compiz (desktop effects) ?10:18
slobad23yeah - that's when it started :)10:19
slobad23all i have turned on is wobbly windows and desktop cube. should i just turn the thing off?10:19
waylandbillslobad23: that is one drawback. It's still pretty new software and has problems. Turning it off (using the standard kwin) should fix the problem.10:20
slobad23compiz is pretty new and clunky... or the version of kde i am using?10:21
hateballare you running emerald as window decorator?10:21
slobad23i am such a linux newbie - i have no idea hateball :)10:22
hateballWell did the problem start when you turned on effects?10:22
hateballOr did it work at first?10:22
slobad23it works now - if i log out and back in its all ok again - it just turns off at seemingly random points. like just now i opened konquerer and all the window borders vanished. but i have opened it now and its back10:23
Hamminghey all :) are there any network specific trouble shooting channels?10:24
hateballIt can be buggy like that10:25
slobad23ah ok10:26
slobad23as long as its not something i have done wrong10:26
hateballBut you can just open a terminal and do: emerald --replace &10:26
hateballif thats what you're using10:26
hateballor if its kwin etc10:26
hateballyou can check in compiz settings10:26

hateballIt is indeed10:28
slobad23isnt emerald pretty :)10:28
slobad23oh no - i closed the terminal and the windows are gone again :)10:29
hateballthats why you need to launch with an & at the end10:29
hateballso it runs regardless10:29
hateballemerald --replace &10:29
slobad23i put the & in there10:30
slobad23but when i close the terminal it disappears10:30
slobad23i'll just leave the terminal open after emerald --replace &10:30
hateballtry using xterm10:30
hateballinstead of konsole or whatever10:30
slobad23trying that now*10:31

hateballis emerald different to what you had before?10:34
slobad23look at the newbie go! i tried "sudo emerald --replace &" and its working without the terminal10:34
hateballyou shouldnt launch it as root tho10:35
hateballshould work just fine anyhow10:35

* djwisdom thinks try doing exec xterm & then 'might' work10:37
slobad23what is "exec xterm &" all about10:37
hateballstarting xterm10:37
Hamminganyone here got experince using desktop sharing and  remote desktop connection???10:38
hateballI dunno how konsole works (gnome guy, dont shoot) but gnome-terminal wont accept &10:38
hateballWhereas xterm does10:38
jussi01& works with konsole10:38

jussi01I just right clicked, then the spanner, then moved the app up on the list15:46
spirooyes, I have phpDesigner which I want to work. But when I am trying to open it fails15:46
spirooThe process starts, but then it just dies15:46
spirooI want all my web devlopment files like html, css, php and so on to associate to phpDesigner. That is the only editor that works good. Unfortunatly they do not develop it for linux.15:48
mefistofelehave you ever tried eclipse, spiroo?15:48
spiroomefistofele: Well, I think I have tried every single editor for linux :D15:48
mefistofeleeclipse is not php-only so I dunno if you tried it or not15:49
spirooAnd yes I have been testing Eclipse, and it is to much and I just hate the interface.15:49
spirooI want a clean app, good support for projects, large projects, nice highlight, and if not I should be able to change every single syntax highlight, which no editor can today except Dreamweaver and phpDesigner 2008 as I know. The highlighter is the most important thing. Then it should have a nice and clean interface which not has anything if I do not want it. I want the screen ONLY to show my code and nothing else.15:51
compilerwriterDoes kubuntu enable sendmail by default15:51
spiroophpDesigner also have a build in debugger, which is quite nice and effectively does my job a lot easier, but it is not any requirement.15:52
mefistofelespiroo: you can set up the association under kcontrol->Default Applications->File Associations15:53
spiroomefistofele: I already have.15:53
mefistofelebut it's not working?15:54
spirooBUT when I am open the file, wine start phpDesigner, BUT it just dies before open the application or the file.15:54
spirooThe only thing that is working is to open phpDesigner itself and then inside the app open my files.15:54
mefistofeletry doing it from the command line15:55
spirooThen I could open the files inside the app. I want easyness :D If I cannot get the most effectively way to do it, then I do not care .P15:55
mefistofeleno, I mean15:55
mefistofelefor debugging purposes15:56
mefistofelego to a directory with some php files you're working on15:56
mefistofeleand do wine <wherever you have phpdesigner> <name of a php file>15:56
spirooah well, why should I? I use my webserver for that ;) What phpDesigner has is a live debugger which print error when I am coding.15:56
mefistofelespiroo: I'm asking you to duplicate on the command line what kde does when it launches phpdesigner with the association, so that we can see some useful debugging output on the command line to solve your problem.15:57
spirooI have a open project which loads a directory. But It would be nice if I just could open the file by double click on someone, and then file and application loads.15:57
mefistofelespiroo: right now it seems to be failing silently and that doesn't give us any helpful information about how to fix the problem15:58
mefistofelespiroo: do you understand?15:58
spiroomefistofele: Ah, hehe, well my english is not the best :D Well, i think I understand. You want me to do "wine <wherever you have phpdesigner> <name of a php file>"15:58

delilazhello everyone, kubuntu informed me to do a fsck in maintenance mode (# mount -n -o remount, rw/), My question is do I have to write the "#" sign and also do I have to do it as "sudo"16:04
mefistofelespiroo: wine should be in your path.  so all you have to do is "wine".  I don't know where your program files folder would be... that could be configured to go wherever you wanted16:06
mefistofelespiroo: probably it's in your home dir someplace, perhaps in .wine16:07
spiroomefistofele: is this correct: "wine C:/Program\ Files/phpDesigner\ 2008/phpDesigner2008.exe index.php"16:08

compilerwriterIs there a way to use kmail from the command line a la sendmail?16:10
mefistofelespiroo: it works on the command line but not from the gui?  gui is perhaps not configured properly then.  go into kcontrol and look at the file association16:12
spiroomefistofele: Yes, it does work from command line and not gui. But the file association is correct and application opens halfway when I am opening a file. But the application dies before it opens the file.16:13
spiroomefistofele: This is the command line which is configured at the moment which does not work: "env WINEPREFIX="/home/spiroo/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\phpDesigner 2008\phpDesigner2008.exe""16:16
