ErtainHello everyone.  When my system starts up I see many files open (via kio_file).  Is there a way to figure out which programs are using Kio_file?00:37
madooy guys ... hello there+00:37
madocan you please help me? ... i want to unpack some rar-files but i can not do that ... i use kubuntu-8.04-kde400:38
ubotturar is a non-free archive format created by Rarsoft. For instructions on accessing .rar files through the Archive Manager view https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FileCompression. There is a free (as in speech) unrar utility as well, see !info unrar-free00:38
madosorry ... i meant guys and gals00:38
coreymon77shouldnt ark do rar files?00:38
madoDragnslcr, i've already installed unrar-free and unrar00:39
madoe.g. when i right click on the file it doesn't give me the option to unpack it00:39
madoand ark or xarchiver don't work with it00:39
madocan i try the whole thing in the konsole to see if i get an error-message?00:40
DragnslcrI've never used rar, so I can't really help much, other than to suggest using unrar from a shell00:40
[pyro]mando check the link ubottu linked before00:40
madoha ha!00:42
madothe konsole says it has a password in it ... funny ... really funny :)00:43
madohmm *thinking*00:46
madois there a way of breaking the whole thing if one doesn't know the password00:46
madobecause there wasn't anything displayed on the site00:47
madowait guys and gals ... there is a faq00:48
madoso guys and gals ... thing is ... the file can be unpacked with "unrar file.rar" :)00:50
madosorry -> "unrar e file.rar" :)00:50
madobut why would someone protect it with a password?00:50
[pyro]mado: because they wanted only people with the password to access its contents00:51
mado[pyro], you say this as if i was breaking a rule00:54
coreymon77mado: the same reason someone would password protect anything else00:55
madoyeah coreymon77 ... but it's free for everyone to download00:55
coreymon77mado: so the password should be on the site you downloaded it form00:56
madoit is coreymon77 ... it is in the faq-section :)00:57

bdizzleis there a way to completely remove wine and the installed programs with it, then replace it with an earlier version of wine?01:53
[pyro]bdizzle: you can sudo apt-get remove wine01:56
[pyro]then find a .deb package of a previous version from wineHQ and install that by hand01:56
bdizzlebut when I re-install it, that brings back all the old software installed under wine automatically01:56
[pyro]you will have to remove that before you remove wine01:56
[pyro]you should have a .wine dir in your home01:57
[pyro]check in there :)01:57
bdizzleyeah, I did that02:00
bdizzleum, can I just purge it?02:00
[pyro]if you dont want to keep anything in there, i guess02:01

bdizzleI'm thinking of saving it as .eps or .jpeg, but insight would be useful if anyone knows how to go about this02:21
Schuenemannyou have to right click the file and choose to save IIRC02:22
bdizzleokay, and then to convert to a .pdf from .jpeg?02:23
Schuenemannhmmm... why is that important anyway?02:24
bdizzleits a re-imbursement form that I have to send and .jpeg isn't really an acceptable format for this02:24

[pyro]what options does it give you?02:26
bdizzle.eps was one of the other decent ones. Otherwise .bmp, .pbm, .pcx, .png, .ppm, .rgb, .tga, .xbm, .xpm, .xv, .jp202:28

kudarit looks pretty cool02:41
Schuenemannubuntu starter edition02:42
kudari think it mainly just has a bunch of apps02:42
nejodeWell, it's a DVD full of stuff02:42
dr_williskudar,  yep.. bsicially it has tons of stuff preinstalled. which may be good or bad.. depending on your needs.02:42
kudarunbuntu could be considered linux starter edition02:42
retj_kind of02:42
kudarya, im just checking it out..02:42
retj_i love kde402:43
retj_imin love02:43
[pyro]mm i havent played with kde4 yet02:43
kudari installed the kubuntu with kde402:43
kudarand it doesn't look like it supports anything02:43
[pyro]reports ive read is that its too unstable02:43
nejodeKDE will run a lot faster if you build fron the mini-iso up02:44
kudarit looked like it wasn't ready yet02:44
kudarlike... the package manager didn't have firefox even02:44
dr_willisKDE4 is a work in progress02:44
kudari dont know if im just a nub02:44
dr_williskudar,  the package maanger for the kde4 cd. uses the same repos as ubuntu does..02:44
dr_willisso  it may be where you were looking.02:44
nejodeI was trying out Intepid alpha5 with KDE 4.1.1 and it was pretty stable02:45
kudardangit, 'an attempt to configure apt to install additional packages from the CD failed'02:45
dr_williskde4.1.1 - is Much improved over 4.0 i hear.02:45
dr_willisOnly the text-based installer cds can be used as a repo.02:45
retj_im using KDE 4.1.102:46
kudari wasn't using the cd...02:46
retj_in my opinion02:46
kudari installed it02:46
kudarwent to package manager and no firefox02:46
retj_next to gnome is like compring windows xp and mac os leopard02:46
dr_williskudar,  then it has cd set up as a repo  - remove the cd repo02:46
kudarand thunderbird was there but not an option02:46
CoJaBo-EeeKDE 4.0 is prtty buggy, I upgradd to 4.1 and it works ok.02:46
dr_willisYou will want to do a update/ugrade first thing  on a new install anyway.02:46
kudardr willis: what are you referring to?02:47
kudarive said a lot02:47
retj_4.1.1 ir really stable02:47
dr_williskudar,   after a new install, you will want to do a update/upgrade with the package manager tool, then start installing new things.02:47
retj_i just hate the fact that kubuntu is left out next to ubuntu-gnome02:48
kudarya, that was a nub mistake on my part02:48
CoJaBo-EeeI nd to figur out how to play vidos tho02:48

nejodehow about sudo apt-get install kubuntu-restricted-extras02:49
CoJaBo-EeeI nd somthing that can play lots of formats, including WMA/WMV.02:49
retj_so both sucked02:49
retj_mplayer does the work and so does vlc02:49
kudarcojabo: i would give vlc a shot02:49
retj_and kaffeine02:50
LinuxReignu can install all of that if u dont mind to have a bulk installation02:50
nejodemplayer and vlc will install almost all the codecs02:50
CoJaBo-EeeI hav usd VLC on Windows bfor, I'll try it.02:50
kudarwow, i wish my liveCD would eject02:50
kudardoes it not let you eject while your running liveCD?02:51
CoJaBo-EeeProbably not02:51
kudaryou have to do it right when you restart?02:51
kudarok, see you guys in a bit02:51

coreymon77umm actually, it forces you to eject the cd when you restart02:52
SchuenemannI'm using gutsy right now. Is it worth installing Heady or is it better to wait for the next version?02:52

Schuenemannbut won't the next version come up in october?02:53
coreymon77Schuenemann: its usually much easier (and less buggy) to upgrade one version at a time02:54
retj_yes it wil02:54
retj_october 30 i gues02:54
dr_willisCoJaBo-Eee,  often its a 'language' setting, or  similer issue remapping the keys02:54
dr_willisbye all02:54
coreymon77skipping a version tends to be a little buggy02:54
Schuenemanncoreymon77, I never upgraded. I always format and install the newer version02:54
coreymon77and why would you do that?02:54
SchuenemannI'm a bit paranoid about that (windows' inheritance I think :P)02:55

coreymon77last time Xorg borked beyond royal02:57

coreymon77its not the laptop03:30
kudarunless it is too new of course03:30
coreymon77its the wifi card03:30

coreymon77some companies refuse to release open source drivers03:31
coreymon77kudar: what card03:31
kudarit says any kernal 2.6.24 and up will have my drivers03:31
Schuenemanncoreymon77, some? you mean most :p03:31
coreymon77kudar: just because they have them doesnt mean its any good03:31
coreymon77Schuenemann: thats why when my wifi card died for the umpteenth time on my desktop, i decided to do some research into what card i should get to replace it03:32
Schuenemannyeah, I did the same to my video card03:33
coreymon77turns out its the best wifi card ive ever had03:33

coreymon77whats wrong with that picture03:37
contrast83coreymon77: that sounds about right to me.03:37
coreymon77contrast83: with my experience with wifi before this card, it was always the other way around03:38
contrast83out of a dozen or so computers where i was setting up wireless, i've only run into issues once or twice, and they were solved within an hour or two. :-D03:38
coreymon77contrast83: all my cards before this were linksys cards03:39
Deniseor cleaning03:40
contrast83kudar: if your lappy has a minipci slot (it should tell you if it does in its manual), you should be able to get whatever minipci wifi card is known to work well with linux and pop it in... or just get another external one. sorry, but that's all the advice i can give ya'. :-\03:40
contrast83although the firmware on a few laptops is locked down so that they'll only work with a very finite number of wireless cards.03:41
coreymon77contrast83: i had atleast four or 5 of them (each of them died after 4-6 months or so), the last few were rt2500 chips03:41

kudarwell, not real quick... you know what i mean03:43
contrast83hehe, couldn't resist03:43
coreymon77kudar: what i mean by physical defects is that the actual antenna (including the connector) physically fell off the card03:43
coreymon77dont blame them though, the antennas were huge and heavy03:44

contrast83kudar: none of the above03:46
contrast83kudar: sudo apt-get install kubuntu-restricted-extras03:46
coreymon77i was forced to use ndiswrapper, which was even less reliable than it is now03:46
contrast83kudar: that'll get your codecs, flash and java.03:46

kudarwhat cards are good for linux?03:53
contrast83i'm lucky. i never really had to deal with a broadcom card til after bcm43xx came out.03:53
coreymon77contrast83: 3 days, and that was after i knew what i was doing03:53
coreymon77contrast83: the first time took longer03:53
contrast83kudar: coreymon77 and i could tell you which ones we're using, but i doubt that'd be as helpful as a google search. :-)03:54

LeeJunFan4.1.1 that is07:21
[pyro]LeeJunFan: can you send me a screenshot?07:24
[pyro]curious to see ur desktop :P07:24
[pyro]sure, u got ports open?07:24
LeeJunFanah, probably not. I'm on the wrong router for that. just a sec, I'll upload to a website.07:25
[pyro]im looking forward to kopete one day having upnp port mapping ability for file xfer's07:25
[pyro]makes sense07:26
LeeJunFanThat one's a bit confusing :) Windows and kde sharing a single desktop.07:27
[pyro]yeah right07:27
[pyro]what are you using to do that?07:27
LeeJunFanit's actually vmware running windows with remote desktop and seemlessrdp, then using rdesktop on the linux side to connect to it. With a little registry hack to get explorer only to display the taskbar - not a whole desktop.07:29
[pyro]neat :)07:30
LeeJunFanThat way I can actually run apps from the VM in their own windows on the desktop. So I get Windows with compiz :)07:30
[pyro]yeah thats neat :)07:30
[pyro]ah nice07:32
LeeJunFanThat's what I used to set it up. I also added options to rdesktop -E -r sound:remote -r printer:[printername on linux] to get sound working and printing from the VM.07:33
[pyro]ah awesome07:33
[pyro]does VM boot auto?07:33
LeeJunFannot yet, I was thinking next time I'm bored I'll write a script to use vmware console to auto power on the VM, then ping until it's up - then launch the rdesktop connection.07:34
[pyro]yeah that could work07:35
LeeJunFanAs of now I'm starting the vmware console, powering on the XP machine, then close the console and connect with the rdesktop menu entry I made.07:36
LeeJunFanwriting the script should be able to make it a single click thing, or no click even.07:36
LeeJunFanbut honestly I don't need windows hogging up RAM all the time.07:37
[pyro]yeah run it when you need it07:37
[pyro]does it run as an overlay or are the windows interactive. so I can have a Linux app overlapping a windwos and vice versa07:39
LeeJunFanthe only thing that's odd is that cmd windows won't open. Everything else seems okay but cmd prompts open and show on the windows taskbar but don't open on the linux desktop. No biggie really, not much need for it. Windows shell is useless anyway.07:39
LeeJunFanit's totally interactive.07:39
LeeJunFanbasically every windows window is wrapped in an X window.07:39
LeeJunFanone other small annoyance running it that way is large menus which fill the screen end up partially obstructed under the kde panel and I end up having to keyboard navigate them.07:42
[pyro]ah ok07:42
LeeJunFanreally only the programs menu I've experienced that with so far.07:42
[pyro]yep i understand07:43
[pyro]i currently have my XP setup in virtualbox ose07:43
[pyro]i hardly ever use it07:43
LeeJunFanyeah, if not for some ballistics software I wouldn't need it at all.07:44
[pyro]ah ok07:44
[pyro]aparantly virtbox ose has desktop intergration? didnt know that07:45

aeonorisAh, yeah, it does seem to, but is there a way to change that?  I liked being able to type and backspace and such until it actually found what I wanted09:28
stdingoat: mostly that it wouldn't have gnome09:28
stdinaeonoris: not that I know of, but I've never looked into that09:29

And I totally love tha faces of them when I change the desktop. Some of them even installed strange tools in windows that do the same more or less. More less than more if you ask me ;-)))10:36
goatIve tried that as well but it was no where near as clean and smooth as compiz10:37

estan(like in adept, but from command line instead).10:46
Tm_T_oggy: ignore that warning10:46

snikkermrxmike: if you want 0.9.1, you must compile from source...11:00
mrxmikesnikker: and break my dependencies!?11:00

KR-datamrxmike, was the answer with virtualbox and the iso for me?11:07
favromrxmike: it "should" be ok - the nightlies aren't supported by vlc themselves - it is developement stuff11:07

Likkibazhang: how do u normally do it?15:04
Likkibazhang: for skim?15:04
bazhangLikki, as I said it took me a few tries to get it going; the global setup then reload configuration should do it15:06

SimmyJbut how do i fix it so it'll start up upon login?15:50
WalexSimmyJ: you too seem a bit optimistic about the availability of our psychic advisors.15:51
WalexSimmyJ: what does "login to kde it doesn't work.. just a blank screen" mean?15:51
SimmyJWalex: enter user name, enter password. press enter. (kdm login screen).15:52
SimmyJWalex: nothing happens. just a blue background... for ever.15:52
SimmyJwell, for as long as i can make myself wait15:52
WalexSimmyJ: then perhaps your loging scripts are not quite running right. Check the xsession logs in your home dir.15:53
WalexSimmyJ: for example your login script may be prompting for something and waiting for a reply forever.15:53

SimmyJWalex: that's what i thought!16:02
SimmyJman this system is just messed :(16:02
WalexSimmyJ: check then the process tree to see what's hanging. Also, put 'set -x' in your login/rc scripts so what they do gets written to the xsession log.16:03

xomphi, just installed kubuntu. Is there any good media players for KDE? I used to use Gnome but now my media files won't play (asks me for a program to play them and I don't know what to choose).17:47
Githzeraidraik: depends on error. What was the exact output? I gave a short version ... ;)17:47
mhallxomp: kaffeine, xine, and mplayer17:48
xompmhall, danke :)17:48
Githzeraixomp: amarok for audio files....17:48
mhallxomp: kaffeine has kde look but uses xine backend usually which makes it my first choice for media playing needs17:48
mhallxomp: oh yeah, and Githzerai is right, amarok is the most hardcore music player... evar. lol!17:48
draikGithzerai: Let me use Pastebin17:49
ubottupastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (be sure to give the URL of your paste - see also the #kubuntu channel topic)17:49
xompmhall, kaffeine good for playing mpg, avi, divx etc?17:49
mhallxomp: yeah anything that works in xine... xine supports damn near everything17:49
mhallxomp: but on those occasions where xine can't do it for some reason, then mplayer comes in very handy17:49
draikGithzerai: http://paste.ubuntu.com/46303/17:49
xompcool thanks :)17:49
mhallxomp: also kaffeine and xine-ui are a lot easier to use than mplayer17:50
xompmhall, oh, that reminds me, does Kaffeine play .flv's?17:51
mhallxomp: hmm i dunno. i know what flv's are but haven't had to play any.17:51
mhallxomp: that sounds like a case where you might need mplayer though17:52
mhallxomp: some real weird proprietary formats don't work in xine17:52
mhallxomp: another good player option is VLC17:52
draikGithzerai: http://paste.ubuntu.com/46308/         Hope this one helps too17:52
mhallxomp: it was created by DVD Jon who cracked the dvd encryption, and a bunch of his friends, as the first really good Linux player17:53
mhallxomp: so it's been around a long time, and DVD Jon doesn't fuck around when it comes to media players.17:53

Alex135Lokiase: linux is a lot of work to start up with old hardware such as you ahve20:48
Daisuke_IdoLokiase: with the specs you just game, your hopes of getting a full-featured distro going (AND having wine available) are slim20:48

Daisuke_Idoso as much as it hurts, if you're mostly concerned with running something through wine, you're better off with windows20:49

jeanettehi folks21:29
jeanettei'm having som problems with getting hardy installed on a brand new machine21:30
jeanettethe "amd64" kde4 cd doesn't want to do anything sane21:30
jeanetteafter selecting the language and then "Install..." it boots a kernel, whirrs for a few seconds with the normal kubuntu splash'21:31
jeanettethen it dumps me in a busybox prompt21:31
jeanettenormal busybox, nothing running21:31
jeanetteno errors, nothing21:32
jeanetteeverything stops and i can play with my "new kubuntu"21:32
jeanettei did think kde4 would be more fancy than busybox...21:32
jeanetteno other console contains anything of use, nor dmesg in the busybox shell21:33
jeanetteany hints?21:34
jeanettesame as there. no solutions21:35
jeanettesomeone says: "Likely a video conflict. Reboot the LiveCD and choose Safe Graphics (VGA) mode from the F4 option (if I remember correctly)."21:36
jeanetteno go, it does the same21:36
jeanetteseems it can be made to install, but 80% of all boots in the future will end up in a similar busybox shell21:42
kudari share my love equally amongst you all21:42
jeanettesuggest to enter "irqpoll" among the boot options21:46
jeanettenope, shows the splash for a little longer, then it dies21:46

kudarliveCd will install it on your machine21:49
jeanettewell, i have the live cd, but i don't want to run the live version21:49
jeanetteyes, i know21:49
jeanetteor, in theory21:50
favrojeanette: you need to find what boot option will make it work - e.g. apci=force or some such21:50

xomphalp, I set firefox as my default web browser and if I follow a link say, from irc it's like it wants to open 2 processes but still opens the site in a new tab (this only happens when I have firefox open already).22:15
stdinopen two processes?22:16
xompthe little hourglass icon sits and spins in the task bar like it is trying to open another instance of firefox but after churning for about 15 secs it goes away and the link is instead opened in a tab22:16
xompI would prefer it open the link in a new tab if the browser is already open, instead of this churning with bouncing hourglass stuff in the task bar hehe22:17
stdinthat's just the launch feedback, it's not starting a new process22:17
xompoh ok22:17
xompit's strange lol22:17
stdinit's really just there to say "I registered that you wanted to do something, so I'm doing it"22:18
xompbut does it generally go on for 15 seconds to just open a link?22:18
xompI mean the link is already opened and has been for awhile when it does this heh22:18
jeanettefavro: well, i played around with some random settings in the bios and setting "Sata mode" to "ahci" (whatever that is) made it boot22:18
stdinxomp: it waits for the window manager to say "I just saw the app start", which, when firefox is open, never happens. so it times out22:19
favrojeanette: well done :) - gonna post that somewhere?22:19
xompahh ok22:19
stdinfirefox should open the link before the timeout though22:19
xompit does, just threw me off lol22:19
xompstdin, know how I can upgrade to the latest KDE? heh I've asked in #kubuntu-kde4 but it's dead in there :S22:20
stdinxomp: see the topic in there ;)22:20
stdinspecifically the 1st link22:20
xompI run Gutsy, is that going to be a problem with latest KDE?22:21
jyosephI'm confused about what themes to download from kde-look.... I go into kcontrol and try to import them and none of them work22:22
jyosephAm I doing something wrong?22:22
stdinxomp: yeah, only have 4.1.x in hardy and intrepid22:22
ubottuTo change gnome themes: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuEyeCandy.  Kubuntu themes: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CustomizeKubuntu. Xubuntu users should /msg ubottu xfce-themes22:22

xompstdin, ahh ok, well I can't run Hardy as it's updates break things so bad Kernel panics are plentiful lol. Do you know the latest version of KDE I can run on Gutsy?22:23
jeanettefavro: nah, if i could randomly figure it out so will someone else too22:23
stdinxomp: I think 4.0.0 is in gutsy-backports22:24
xompok thanks :D22:24
jyosephmaybe it's just because I'm not used to kde, I dunno22:24
xompme neither, but I like it22:25
