Schuenemannhey, I want to format an unformatted partition with qtparted but it says I have to unmount it first. How do I do that?00:01
MrKennie_if it's unformatted how can it be mounted?00:01
SchuenemannI don't know00:01
Schuenemannit had solaris before I deleted it00:01
mefisto__Schuenemann: can't you unmount in qtparted? right-click the partition00:02

favromn: dialup issues?00:04
neversfeldeSchuenemann: and you want to format /dev/hda6 ?00:04
Schuenemannthe error says: filesystem not correctly unmounted. You have to run e2fsck. Modifying a filesystem in this state can damage it.00:04
neversfeldehello allen00:05
Schuenemannneversfelde, no, it's just swap. I think it is /dev/hda2 now00:05
alleni just installed ubuntu but am having problems installing the gust additions, can anyone help?00:05
mnfavro: nah, someone was askin about it over at #ubuntu an hour or two ago and I was just lookin to find  out some more on it00:05
SchuenemannI didn't have any win95 partition00:05
mnim on satelite00:05
alleni am brand new to linux00:05
favromn: there is !dialup - check it with /msg ubottu !dialup00:06
Schuenemannneversfelde, it is 15 GB. It doesn't seem to be listed there00:06
MrKennie_allen: do you mean guest additions? are you using virtualbox or something?00:06
mnaiight, thx00:06
allenyes, sorry, using sun virtual box00:06
allenand yes, guest additions00:06
neversfeldeSchuenemann: mhh, it was a swap partition? Have you tried it with live cd?00:07
MrKennie_allen: I think ubuntu has all you need already00:07
allenhow do I get it to see a bigger screen size?00:07
Schuenemannneversfelde, no, it had opensolaris.00:07
Schuenemannneversfelde, take a look at this: http://img295.imageshack.us/my.php?image=qtpartedgz4.jpg00:08
neversfeldesure about hda2? hda6 has a solaris00:08
MrKennie_allen: under system settings00:08
Schuenemannneversfelde, please, take a look at that picture. It calls hda2 the union of hda5 and 600:09
alleni figured it out00:10
MrKennie_allen: you could install virtualbox-ose-guest-utils via adept too00:10
MrKennie_allen: not sure what you get because I've never run ubuntu using virtualbox00:10
allenmrkennie: thanks, i' got it to install. it was a basic linux issue using SH. I am brand new to the linux world00:11
neversfeldeSchuenemann: sorry, I do not use qtparted ,so I cannot trust it. Probably it is a mistake.00:11
Schuenemannneversfelde, what should I do?00:12
neversfeldeSchuenemann: boot a live cd and take a lokk at your partitions00:13
Schuenemannusing what?00:13
neversfeldeSchuenemann: fdisk00:13
Schuenemannneversfelde, but will fdisk show an unformatted partition?00:14
=== c is now known as enhazed
MrKennie_cfdisk is a little more user friendly00:14
neversfeldeor parted00:15
Schuenemannit looks like DOS fdisk00:15
neversfeldethere are several tools00:15
Schuenemannlet me upload for you what cfdisk is showing00:15
Schuenemannhere: http://img261.imageshack.us/my.php?image=cfdiskmc6.jpg00:16
MrKennie_fdisk, cfdisk etc will show any partition formatted or not00:16
Schuenemannfdisk -l isn't showing it00:17
Schuenemannthere is a "free space" below hda6 there00:17
Schuenemannthat's the I wanted to format00:17
neversfeldesorry, 1:18 am here in Germany. Have to go. gn8 everybody00:18
Schuenemannalright, bye00:18
MrKennie_Schuenemann: you need to create a partition where the free space is00:18
SchuenemannMrKennie_, ok, I couldn't with qtparted, but cfdisk seems to be able00:19
SchuenemannMrKennie_, can you tell me what is the difference between a logical or primary partition?00:19
MrKennie_I don't really know the specifics00:20
MrKennie_I'm sure someone here does00:20
Schuenemannoh well, I'll make it logical as my ubuntu one is too00:22
grendal_primewhats the handy dandy pkg that makes shred an item in the right click menu?00:24
MrKennie_kgpg iirc00:25

grendal_primehmmm nope that gives me the right click encrypt option..but ummm no shred00:28
grendal_primeits werid i have a machine here...its a debian testing install..it has it...but it has always had it.00:29

mefisto__grendal_prime: what you want is a servicemenu for konqueror or dolphin00:31
grendal_primekonqueror would be nice00:32

afeijoI have 2 sessions not responding, how to close both? I'm in my third session, lol00:55
dbgltafeijo: ctrl-alt-bkspc in the sessions doesn't work?00:56
afeijodidnt try, wait00:56
anom01yto anyone who knows anything here or cares to know things: the instructions on that IVTV link are useless and screw things up00:56
mnWhat does it mean when I'm getting Hits while apt-get updating?00:56
afeijodbglt: now both session shows as not used, but they remain in the sessions list00:57
anom01yapparently all you have to do is apt-get install ivtv-utils, not all the rest of the instrucitons there00:57
dbgltafeijo: hrmmm, they aren't running this way, but I'm not sure how to remove them from the list00:59
dbgltafeijo: I would have thought it would be done automatically00:59
anom01yanyone know how to configure ivtv ?00:59
afeijodbglt: ow, one is gone, one to go :) it take some time here01:00
dbgltafeijo: :)01:00

anom01ythe help provided by !ivtv screws up your computer01:07
dbgltanom01y: mmm? Installing a gpg key shouldn't do much01:08
anom01yno, well running the other commands provided by that help would have thank god they didnt work01:08
dbgltanom01y: why would it have screwed it, exactly?01:09
anom01ythanks btw01:09

anom01yit is my bad I am a complete newb01:10
BluesKajanom01y, none of that rap ghetto talk here please , use plain english so we can understand you01:11
BluesKajlots of people don't know what "my bad " means and it's poor grammar and english usage01:12
anom01yuhh ok, how can I get IVTV working ?01:13
mnBluesKaj, alot of ppl use "my bad"  these days01:13
anom01yI installed ivtv-utils, and then I tried mplayer /dev/video0, but I get nothing but errors01:14
anom01ydo I need mythtv for my hauppauge pvr 150 to work ?01:15
BluesKajwell mn , it doesn't mean that it should be encouraged01:15
mnI agree01:16
ubottuMythTV is a TV framework for Linux - Instructions for using with Ubuntu at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MythTV01:16
anom01ywell time to screw up my computer even more01:16
BluesKajwe have memebers world wide who are studying proper english usage and expressions that are grammaticallly incorrect can be confusing for them . I'm guilty of it too , cuz i forget sometimes :)01:17
anom01yglad there are people here who care more about grammar than computer problems01:18
mn:)  Good point Blues01:19
BluesKajanom01y, no there are apps like TVTime which should work with hauppage cards01:19
mnCould be considered idiomatic?01:19
BluesKajmn, I think it's just trying too hard to be cool.01:22

BluesKajmn, I'm an old blues musician so I recognize the symptoms :)01:25
Tophi have been having a problem with my network for some time now,,, i have 2 vista machines and 1 Kubuntu, has set up Samba.  i can access the Kubuntu machine from both Vistas, and can see the Vista machines on the Kubuntu, but can't open them,, any ideas?01:27
BluesKajToph, I have to ask the obvious question : do you have filesharing enabled on all machines01:28
anom01yjeesh get more help in #linux then here01:28
TophBluesKaj: i do01:28
BluesKajanom01y, if you think #linux can help you more then ask your question there .. I answered your question but you didn't reply01:31
BluesKajToph, Vista has some odd security issues that we here may not be able to help with, so maybe ##winows can help you with that question.01:33
BluesKajerr ##windows01:33
TophBluesKaj: ok,, thanks01:33
anom01ywell I was told in #linux that I am missing drivers (after executing a dmesg command), so, my question is how do I install the ivtv drivers, I have a fairly recent kernel and am using kubuntu 8.0401:35
dr_willisToph,  try mounting the shares manually from the command line also. Ive seen the kde and gnome file managers 'share browsing' feature - having some issues at times.01:35
anom01ythe instrucitons provided by !ivtv01:36
ubottuIVTV can be installed on Edgy by following the guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Install_IVTV_Edgy01:36
anom01yare for older versions of ubuntu01:36
dr_willisa bit out of date. :)01:36
BluesKajanom01y, that depends on the file extension of the drivers , if they are deb files then it's relatively easy as are gz or bz201:36
dr_willis!find ivtv01:37
ubottuFound: linux-image-2.6.24-16-386, linux-image-2.6.24-16-generic, linux-image-2.6.24-16-server, libvideo-ivtv-perl, ivtv-source (and 8 others)01:37
Tophdr_willis: could you please give me the command for mounting a share... the Vista machine is 'VistaBox',  the share is 'MyDocuments'01:37
anom01yI am using kernel 2.6.24-1901:37
dr_willisToph,   i dont rember them exactly. its the smbmount command I belive.01:37
Tophdr_willis: ok,, i'll check01:37
dr_willisToph,  at least you dont have silly spaces in the shares names. :)01:37
BluesKajanom01y, have you looked at TVTime ?01:37
anom01yI installed ivtv-utils, but nothing works (vlc)01:37
anom01ydo I need tvtime or mythtv or any of those ?01:38
dr_willisanom01y,  mythtv is overkill for just watching tv.01:38
BluesKajtry tvtime , it won't break anything01:38
dr_willis!info tvtime01:38
ubottutvtime (source: tvtime): A high quality television application. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.0.2-0.3ubuntu2 (hardy), package size 676 kB, installed size 1928 kB01:38
anom01yI just want to record from the video inputs I plugged in01:38
anom01yI don't really need to change channels or any of that stuff01:39
anom01yvlc's pvr settings don't work on /dev/video0, and the command mplayer /dev/video0 gives me errors01:41
BluesKajI used tvtime with a sat receiver and remote ..worked fine01:41
BluesKajwith a crappy ATI TV Tuner card01:43
anom01yok well I installed tvtime see if that works I guess01:43
anom01ytvtime says no such file or directory /dev/video0 (so Im not on crack)01:45
anom01ythe guys in #linux specifically said I am missing drivers01:45
anom01yhow do I install the ivtv drivers if the instrutcitons provided from !ivtv do not work ?01:46
dr_willisanom01y,  OR the module is not loaded...01:46
dr_willistry a  'locate ivtv' perhaps.01:47
dr_willisor 'sudo modprobe ivtv'01:47
anom01yok those are done01:47
anom01yno errors01:47
dr_willisnow check for /dev/video*01:47
dr_willisls -l /dev/video*01:47
BluesKajanom01y, there are some changes that might need to made to your Xorg.conf file , but I'm not sure what thay are with your card.01:47
dr_willisalso check dmesg output now.01:47
anom01yok /dev/video0 exists, but tvtime doesnt pick anything up there01:48
anom01yalright thanks dr_willis that was exactly what I was looking for01:49
anom01yI got a picture, but its only a fuzzy picture, so I think I need to configure it with tvtime01:49
anom01ytvtime still gives me an error though01:50
anom01ywhat is video4linux ?01:51

anom01ytvtime still says error accessing /dev/video002:03
edulix_{j #bash02:04
anom01yI remember I used to have to use mythtv and configure the channels everytime to use the tv/tuner card02:05
anom01ybut tvtime doesnt look like it configures the channels02:05
dr_willissounds like its tuning in static. :)02:06
anom01yyeah well I do remember specifically having this issue before, and all I would do is use mythtv, rescan all the channels, then it would work02:06
anom01ymplayer /dev/video0 would work after that,02:07
anom01yso, without mythtv how can I get around this issue ? anyone ?02:07

Vermux_hpladds: yes it's there, the windows03:35
hpladdsVermux_: then ls ./03:35
Vermux_hpladds: ok, nothing is displayed03:35
hpladdsVermux_: I'm stumped03:37
hpladdsVermux_: you have seen the sda1 in the return from the "fdisk -l" right?03:38
hpladdsOh is windows a directory or a file?03:39
hpladdsdid you "mkdir /media/windows" as root03:40
Vermux_hpladds: I dont see now anything with fdisk -l03:40
Vermux_hpladds: Im not sure03:40
hpladdsVermux_: first things first: We don't see the sda1 partition, it's going to be very tough to mount. (smile)03:41
Vermux_hpladds: now we dont see, before that we saw it03:42
hpladdsVermux_: sudo fdisk -l03:43
Vermux_hpladds: ok, now it's there03:43
hpladdsVermux_: great03:43
Vermux_hpladds: /dev/sda103:43
hpladdsls -Al /media03:44
hpladdsVermux_: ls -Al /media03:44
Vermux_hpladds: nothing happans03:44
Vermux_just new blank line with no prompt03:44
hpladdsVermux_: That is weird "ls" is a basic command, it shouldn't cause trouble03:45
hpladdsVermux_: "ctrl + c" doesn't get you out of it?03:46
Vermux_hpladds: now I closed the session and opened a new one. there is no windows directory03:47
hpladdsVermux_: we've seen it before though.03:48
Vermux_hpladds: yes, I created it again, tried to mount again but same thing, new blank line03:48
hpladdsVermux_: created sudo "mkdir /media/windows"03:49
Vermux_hpladds: yes03:49
hpladdsVermux_: I wonder what the permissions of the directory are?03:51
hpladdsVermux_: the windows directory03:51
hpladdsVermux_: This just a tmp file right?03:52
hpladdsVermux_: Might as well open the directory wide open03:52
Vermux_hpladds: how do I check the permissions?03:52
Vermux_hpladds: this is using the live cd so I dont know where it opens the file03:52
hpladdssudo chmod 777 /media/windows03:52
Vermux_hpladds: ok03:53
Vermux_hpladds: no mount again?03:53
Vermux_hpladds: now03:53
hpladdsVermux_: I didn't expect to to yet03:54
Vermux_hpladds: ?03:54
hpladdsVermux_: now that the permissions are wide open, lets try to mount it03:54
hpladdsmount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /media/windows03:55
Vermux_hpladds: nothing happans03:55
hpladdsVermux_: did you check "mount"03:56
Vermux_hpladds: I meant, I got a new blank line with nothing in it03:56
aotianlongVermux_: nothing happans is success03:56
aotianlongls /media/windows03:57
Vermux_I meant, that there is a new line but with no prompt03:57
aotianlongis there any files exists03:57
Vermux_aotianlong: no03:57
hpladdsVermux_: Give me about five min, I'm going to try mounting using a live cd, on another machine03:58

Vermux_hpladds: ?04:02
hpladdsVermux_: Sorry I was giving updates of what was happening on my end04:02
Vermux_hpladds: ok, maybe I should burn the ubuntu cd in the meantime?04:02
hpladdsVermux_: It worked04:04
Vermux_hpladds: I dont know wahts wrong04:05
hpladdsVermux_: i can see the boot.ini04:05
Vermux_hpladds: what did u choose when booting the cd?04:05
Vermux_hpladds: Im rebooting04:05
hpladdsThe first option. Something like "try Ubuntu with making changes to your computer."04:06

Vermux_hpladds: yes04:18
Vermux_hpladds: what next?04:18
Vermux_hpladds: mount?04:18
charlesanyone...at all?04:18
Vermux_hpladds: r u sure it is mount -t ntfs....?04:18
hoofinI think there is only two people here04:19
hoofinbesides us04:19
hpladdsit worked for me04:19
charlesim here04:19
hoofinme too04:19
Vermux_hpladds: r u sure it is mount -t ntfs....???04:19
hoofin newbe04:19
charlesi just need help understanding Kubuntu,,,commands,scripts etc etc04:19
hpladdsVermux_: It worked for me04:19
gkffjcsis there any documentation on the contents of the .local dir? More specifically is there any documentation on how to externally edit the contents of the kmenu?04:20
Vermux_hpladds: failed to mount04:20
Vermux_hpladds: mount is denied because ntfs is marked to be in use04:21
charlesis there any documentation for noobs on Kubuntu??!?04:21
hoofinthere is a whole lot of stuff for editing you should goggle what you are looking for the truth is out there04:21
Vermux_hpladds: ooo, I need to disconnect the memory stick I think04:22
Vermux_hpladds: how do I force that?04:22
Vermux_hpladds:  it is sdb104:22
charlesANYONe please...help me...im just wanting to learn04:22
hpladdsVermux_: fdisk -l to learn what devise is the memory stick04:22
hoofinim in your shoes here04:22
charlessend me in the right direction to teach myself Linux and etc any docs or forums would help04:22
charlesi believe theyre ignoring us hoofin lol04:23
hpladdsVermux_: umount /the/device/name04:23
hoofinjust goggle linux forums04:23
hoofinI know04:23
Vermux_hpladds: the memory stick is fat16, the page file is ntfs04:23
charlesmy bro-in-law told me to check out www.tldp.org04:24
gkffjcscharles: what would you like to do? In general if you have a specific question ask it, else, there are a tone of resources online, try google, ubuntu forums, and linux forums04:24
hpladdsVermux_: it is not "unmount" just "umount"04:24
charlesim there now but it seems as complicated as what im trying to learn04:24
gkffjcscharles: what are you trying to learn?04:24
charlesgkffjcs...im just wanting to learn the basics04:24
Vermux_hpladds: what about sda2?04:24
charlesim currently running Kubuntu with a GUI...but i want to learn scripts and etc etc and how Linux works and such04:25
Vermux_hpladds: it says it recognized unclean  shutdoesn04:25
hpladdsVermux_: I wouldn't touch sda204:25
Vermux_hpladds: I umount the sdb, it said that it is unmounted04:26
Vermux_hpladds: still same message04:26
gkffjcscharles: if you want to learn about scripting, then perhapse look into bash, bash is the default shell (command line) in kubuntu, you can ask about it at #bash04:26
Vermux_hpladds: because windows wasnt shut down in a clean way04:26
hpladdsVermux_: lets try some this: It worked as wellon my machine. "sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/windows"04:27
Vermux_hpladds: $logfile indicates unclean shutdown (0,1)04:27
Vermux_hpladds: same message04:27
gkffjcsVermux_: try mount -t ntfs /dev/whatever /media/windows/ -o force04:28
hpladdsI doubt the boot.ini is on the sda204:28
Vermux_hpladds: it says again the log file message and that forced mount, reset $logfile04:29
Vermux_it worked04:29
hpladdsVermux_: I like gkffjcs suggestion04:29
powertool08Can anyone here add m4a tracks to k3b without error?04:30
gkffjcsthanks hpladds04:31
Vermux_hpladds: yay04:31
Vermux_gkffjcs: thanks04:31
Vermux_now how do I change back the boot.ini to its original state04:31
Vermux_currently its forcing the machine to boot into safe modwe04:31
charlesim just wanting to learn Kubuntu,,,anyone know of any tutorials i could download and read?04:32
gkffjcsyou should get a menu an the option the select with mode to start windows in. Select normal boot or whatever it is, and then shut down properly04:32
gkffjcsthat process itself should reset the boot in windows04:32
gkffjcscharles: there a lot, try google, if you keep asking the same question you will keep getting the same answer.04:33
gkffjcsIf you have a specific question feel free to ask04:34
Vermux_gkffjcs: what menu, I cant boot win. I mounted windows partition with kubuntu live cd so I can change manually the boot.ini file04:34
gkffjcsotherwise I don't know how to help you, nore will anyone else.04:34
gkffjcsoh, sorry, what happens when you try to boot windows?04:34
gkffjcsdose it boot at all?04:35
hpladdsgkffjcs: What does the -f option do? I just read the man -- still didn't understand.04:35
gkffjcsin what? ntfs-3g04:35
gkffjcsit force resets the log file, in case of a dirty dismount of an ntfs volume04:36
Vermux_gkffjcs: to make long story short, it is a trojan. couldnt boot to safe mode for some reason, so I tried to force safe mode with superantispyware boot safe, after that I cant boot at all, it gives the options of safe modes, normal, last know conf. etc. but it wont boot it to the operating system04:36
gkffjcshmm, do you have a windows cd?04:37
Vermux_gkffjcs: so I wanted to change back the boot.ini file that I assume SAfeBoot changed04:37
Vermux_gkffjcs: yes, cant use the recovery console because it doesnt accept m password (probably the Trojan action)04:37
gkffjcstry opening /media/windows/boot.ini in a text editor and see what it looks like,04:38
Vermux_gkffjcs: so first, I want to change the boot.ini back so I can boot04:38
gkffjcsVermux_: I don't know how to do that04:38
Vermux_gkffjcs: it says gkffjcs in support msn page the default of the operating system says multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect04:39
Vermux_gkffjcs: I currently have /fast detect /noexecute=optin /safeboot:network04:40
gkffjcsok, here, one second04:40
gkffjcsthis is my boot.ini, compare it to yours, and see if there are obvious changes04:41
gkffjcsother than that this is a linux channel, and I am limited in my win knoledge, there is an unofficial #windows, maybe they can help you better.04:42
Vermux_gkffjcs: ok, thanks. the order is not important right? /fastdetect first or after /no execute...04:43
gkffjcsI don't know.04:43
Vermux_gkffjcs: so if I quit the kubuntu live cd it will save the changes I made with the editor, right?04:45
gkffjcsyou need to save with the editor, if you open the file in a text editor then you ned to save in that text editor, it has nothing to do with the live cd it self, it's just like in anyother program, you change the file you need to click save.04:46
Vermux_gkffjcs: thanks, I Saved it04:46
gkffjcshonestly I don't think you have a problem with your boot.ini, but I honestly don't know what else the problem is also in the recovery console try leaving the password blank and logging in as administrator, unless you specifically set a password for the "Administrator" user in xp it has no password, that might be the source of your password issue04:48
hpladdsgkffjcs: ok now I've reread the man page for mount. It does not detail a "force" option for -o. You made it up *smile*04:52
gkffjcsno i didn't, it's a fuse option, read man:/ntfs-3g04:53
gkffjcsor man:/fuse04:53
hpladdsgkffjcs: ah thanks04:53
gkffjcshpladds: when ever you see a mount command with the form something something -o someoption, the file system is probabily based on fuse.04:54
gkffjcsfor instance curlftpfs mounts ftp locations as a local fs, and you need to user for example -o user="username"04:56

charlesgkffjcs...could you help me?05:09
charlesive downloaded a theme and i need help on how to install it?05:10
gkffjcscharles: is it a whole theme, or just a color or icon theme?05:10
charlesa whole theme05:10
=== charles is now known as charles__

gkffjcsclick on Install New theme05:12
charleswhen i go to the folder...it shows all the folders...how do i load all of them at once?05:12
hpladdsgkffjcs: I go to System Settings > network. I don't have knetworkmanger.05:12
gkffjcshpladds: um, it's probabily actually in your system tray, it should be a little icon with signel strenth bars05:13
hpladdsps -A shows that it is running05:14
gkffjcshpladds: try your system tray05:15
hpladdsAh, mine is a icon for an RJ-45 (I suppose) outlet05:15
charlesgkffjcs....when i go to where i extracted the theme to it shows the folders...no files to install05:15
hpladdsgkffjcs: in th system tray05:15
hpladdsgkffjcs: wireless devices are only accessible via a right click on the icon05:17
gkffjcsyeah, that's it05:17
gkffjcsdose it show your connected to a network?05:17
hpladdsgkffjcs: Actually it says thatI'm not connected05:19
gkffjcsok, so that means you manually configured your adapter, honestly, this is not where I really know my stuff, so sorry. What I would check is your dns, and see, if other services are able to connect to the internet, you might also check your bwoser settings to see if there is something strange there.05:21
hpladdsgkffjcs: Oh! I signed on from a console window.05:21
gkffjcsyour using a console based irc client?05:22
hpladdsgkffjcs: That definately pointed me in the right direction05:22
hpladdsgkffjcs: Konversation05:22
hpladdsgkffjcs: I guess I don't really know the difference between a termial and a console window05:24
NightSporeI'm using a console client too05:24

gkffjcsyou cannot install stuff on a live cd05:38
gkffjcsyou can install stuff on an installed system, and can use a live cd as a source of packages if you don't have internet.05:39
HenryHerongkffjcs: well, I have internet connect (dial up) so I got the "live cd" but can find no option to just install kde desktop on current system05:40
HenryHerongkffjcs:any directions would be very appreciated05:41
gkffjcshuh, in a live cd there should be an icon on the desktop, saying install to hard disk05:42
HenryHerongkffjcs:but it only (apparently) offers a full install05:43
gkffjcsoh, don't boot off the live cd, boot into normal mode05:43
favroHenryHeron: if you put the kubuntu cd in and search it for .deb files you'll have what you can install of the cd05:44
HenryHerongkffjcs:in my ubuntu OS or do I boot from live cd?05:45
sancho21Font packs in Kubuntu is not as complete as ones in Ubuntu05:45
gkffjcsno, you want to boot into the installed ubuntu, and add the disk as a repo, then install form the disk05:45
HenryHerongkffjcs:from synaptic pm?05:46
gkffjcsyes, in synaptic there should be a manage repositories option, make sure that the cd is checked as a source, and then refresh the package list05:47
gkffjcsI think that should work05:47
HenryHerongkffjcs:THANKS. I'm embarrassed I didn't think of this... :) & thanks favro!05:48

ccoffeyI have a quick question, and it's incredibly noobie, but I'll ask anyway. On a frsh install of 8.04, I installed the windows effects from the k menu (nvidia driver). Should the title bar of my active window be 100% opaque, as the title bar on my background windows is translucent? Is that the way it should be15:52
jussi01Razorcloud: you need the specialness...15:52
lexi am really sorry, but i have to go now. my roommates are hungry, and so am I. I wish you guys luck in solving the probs. :)15:52

Razorcloudyea see im not sure why im running 64 bit version15:54
Razorcloudi dont recall having a choice between 64 bit and 32 when i was DLing the CD image15:54
Razorcloudand imagine my horror when i installed onto my XP computer, after partitioning off 100gigs for linux and seeing the arch as x86_6415:55
Razorcloudim not a gigantic fan of 64 bit seeing as how, well in windows at least, its totally unstable. Are the linux 64 bits relatively stable?15:55
PiciRazorcloud: It stable, but as you can see some proprietary software is not available for 64 bits.15:56
jussi01Razorcloud: yes, but often things that are from closed source (like flash) are not available for 64bit15:56
Razorcloudyes that is what i imagine15:56

WaSTe[bRe]i download icons, how to change icons for mozilla, home, mail??15:57
Razorcloudchange the icons in general you mean, or in a dock?15:57
WaSTe[bRe]on dektop15:58
Razorcloudtry right clicking on your desktop and there might be an icon option. You might also trying going to system settings in the K menu and going to one of the appearance menus15:58
Razorcloudi havent tried it, but it might also be as easy as right clicking on individual icons and finding a change appearance/icon option15:59
WaSTe[bRe]right cvclick on icon16:00
Razorcloudmalique, i have been thinking and i cant decide what i think is causing that problem16:00
WaSTe[bRe]but there is not a button its picture of icon and i must presed on it, how did i mised that16:00

master_kubuntu 7.04 on my laptop just stopped logging in.. I enter the password, the screen goes dark, and then it bring me back to the login screen.20:59
master_What can I do?20:59
powertool08master_: I'd check your Xauth logs in /var/log/ for clues21:02
master_powertool08: each try adds another 27 lines to /var/log/Xorg.0.log but that includes no explicit errors.21:13
powertool08master_: look at "dmesg | tail" and i believe kdm also has a log file in the /var/log/ directory21:14
sputnickhi there21:14
sputnickcan I install kde4 from packages but no replacing kde3 ?21:15
sputnickI would like to keep both if it's possible21:16
powertool08sputnick: I'm pretty sure it keeps both by default, at your login screen you can click on sessions and choose21:16
sputnickI'm under Ubuntu hardy21:16
master_powertool08: dmesg doesn't show anything for each login attempt..  the kdm log adds 6 lines each time.. stuff like synapticsDeviceOn called  and synapticsDeviceOff called and SynapticsDeviceInit called..21:17
master_powertool08: at the end of Xorg.0.log, it also said synapticsDeviceOff called..21:18
master_Might that mean anything?21:18
powertool08master_: I think its referring to your trackpad mouse21:19
powertool08master_: can you log in as another user without problems?21:19

CapitalT_Any eclipse users here?21:49
CapitalT_Does the side panels minimize vertically (like on Windows) or do they look like this http://www.picoodle.com/view.php?img=/3/9/8/f_snapshot1m_e1a3c62.png&srv=img2621:49
powertool08I've heard of it :)21:49
RurouniJonesEr, don't know what you mean byt he screenshot but AFAIK they minimise to the left21:50
CapitalT_RurouniJones: the panel should've minimized vertically (sideways), not horizontally. It wastes space this way21:52
CapitalT_RurouniJones: it already does that on Windows, and since Eclipse is written in Java I fail to see why that's not the case on Ubuntu21:53

Sixzerook, look to the bottom right of your screen on the bar.  To the left of the date and time you should see a white icon that looks kinda like a white popsickle, even though I'm sure it's supposed to be a plug.  Do you see it?23:25

martalliI know that this channel is still for versions 7.04 -8.04, but I have to say that the new version of Kubuntu is grrrrrreat!23:42
Sixzeroyou talkin' bout kde4 martalli?23:44
martallikde 4.1.123:44
martalliI had some initial bumps, but I think this is looking great.23:45
martalliAnd the distro release is still in the alpha23:45
Sixzerowhats up with that lil dodad in the top right corner?  i installed it once and it lasted me 5 minutes.23:45
martalliJust wanted to be a gushing faboy in #kubuntu, since #ubuntu+1 is sullied by the gnome drudges23:46
martalliwhat doodad?23:46
SixzeroThe orange curly thing in the top right corner, I think it has something to do with widgets.23:46
skinnymg1kieren sorry had to take care of something23:47
martalliSixzero: Yes, its for adding widgets23:48
martalliThey don't seem to have a lot of widgets yet, honestly.  Personally, I don't care much for widgets...My wife has a mac and we haven't changed the widgets on that at all.23:49
Sixzeromartalli: as soon as i clicked on it the first time i installed kde4 it crashed my comp so I had to reinstall kde323:49
martalliSixzero: When was that?23:49
martalliI think the 8.10 alpha is fairly stable...although adept only started working for me this week (I prefer the CLI anyway lol =)23:50
Sixzeromartalli: about 2 weeks ago23:50
Sixzerosorry, i'm still kinda new23:50
ubottuThe linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal23:50
martalliIt has been working for me....But I think I will keep our office on 3.5.x for the next iteration again, or until I am sure all the bugs are worked out.23:50
martalliSixzero: No problems.  Instead of using adept or update-manager, you can simply run the update from the command like (from the konsole app) by running the command "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"23:52
SixzeroIt was a real pain to get everything installed right on my shuttle box, even moreso on my compaq with a radeon inside23:52
martalliThe first command updates the packages in the repositories, and the next command does the update23:52
* martalli doesn't have any radeons23:52
martalliBut I thought that hardy and intrepid were going to work better with ati23:52
Sixzeroi hadn't caught the abbreviaton for command line interface, that's what threw me off23:53
Sixzero<-- = dumb@ss23:53
martalliSixzero: no problem =)  Did you come from the mac or pc world?23:53
martalliThey don't use the command line much, unless you hail from the days of DOS23:53
Sixzeromy compaq is a hackintosh dual-booting with kubuntu 8.0423:53
Sixzerothe last time I messed around with command-line heavily was dos 3.1123:54
martalliAh, sounds like you know your way around fooling with a computer, then =)23:54
SixzeroI'm young, but I started even younger.  I used to have a real authentic copy of dos 1 for atari 800, lol23:55
martalliLinux is great for fooling around with the system, although stable distros like ubuntu, fedora, and mandriva should be able to do a lot for you with just a standard, stable install23:55
Sixzerothe system installed great.  it's getting the graphics cards set up that hurt you at first.23:55
Sixzeroit took me an entire week to get just the right install/setup for that radeon card flrgxconfig would read it right23:56
martalliI started with Linux around 2003, but now the default installs are very useful and rock solid23:56
martalliDo you have an older radeon?  I think the work on the radeons for linux is mostly with the newish cards23:56
SixzeroI had similar birthing pains with the shuttle box.  It's got an onboard geforce 7 and getting a stable driver for it was quite a chore.23:57
martalliYeah, only after I wondered why I didn't have desktop effects did I realize that my laptop running 8.10 kubuntu was using the vesa driver.  The resolution was fine, but the eye candy missing =)23:57
SixzeroDoes anyone here know about configuring multiple soundcards in KDE?23:58
martalliyeah, this lappie has a geoforce go 7200...Somehow ubuntu just woulnd't recognize it, but with enough fiddling it seems to be working now23:58
martalliSixzero: got me there23:58
martalliI wonder if the forums would have something, or the ubuntustudio folks23:59
SixzeroNow that I've installed compiz on my shuttle box, i'm starting to wish I hadn't.  Now none of the games will open correctly in full windows.23:59
