Carla1989I completed two passes for this test yesterday, no errors. Didn't complete it fully though.00:00
Carla1989After a long wait of over an hour, it was going to scan the third time ..00:01
atomizerhas anyone had any success installing a Netgear WG111v3 wireless usb adapter?00:02
wesley_is there a way to start network-manger-gnome in kde ?00:02
etfbwesley_: Something about nm_applet, I think.  Google it.00:03
Carla1989LeeJunFan: There should be some channel, providing specialized technical support. :)00:03
LeeJunFanCarla1989: well then it's probably fine. If there's a problem it'll normally find it on the first pass.00:03
wesley_etfb the thing is it seems the gnome one does connect with wifi in 8.10 and the kde not00:04
Carla1989LeeJunFan: So what's the next step for me. I have to send this laptop for servicing and it'll take about 2-3 weeks for it to come back. That is the only reason I had to find out my oldie laptop and get it fixed so that I can not be left in a desert.00:05
etfbwesley_: "the gnome one"?  What do you mean?00:05
wesley_the gnome fronted of network-manager00:05
LeeJunFanCarla1989: I'm not at all convinced it's the hardware.00:06
etfbwesley_: Oh, OK.  So what's not working?  I can use wifi perfectly well with knetworkmanager, although getting VPN to work has been impossible so far.00:06
LeeJunFanCarla1989: gimme a min, I'm booting the install CD in a virtual machine right now to see what options are available to see what's being done when it fails.00:06
Carla1989LeeJunFan: Oh, Is there a way to format my HD while I am on the usable desktop?00:06
Carla1989LeeJunFan: Nice.00:07
wesley_etfb you use kubuntu 8.10 alpha 5 ?00:08
etfbwesley_: Oh, sorry, misread.  No, I'm on Hardy.  So is it stuffing up on Intrepid, is it?  Bugger!00:08
etfbwesley_: The gnome network manage is apparently part of some set of Gnome applets, and I'm pretty sure the command to get it working is nmapplet or nm-applet or something like that.00:10
etfbUsed to have to use it before they fixed the problem with configuring VPNs in KDE.00:10
tim_hello, I have 2 hdds, 1 for kubuntu and I mounted the other as kbackup.  After reinstalling kubuntu and remounting the 2nd hdd, there appears to be no files, eventhough I did not format that drive.  Any ideas?00:10
etfb(Except, of course, that it's not all that fixed, since kvpnc has never worked for me.  Maybe I should go back to the old way...)00:10
atomizerim off now, bye bye00:11
etfbtim_: Can you access the complete backup copies you made of the second drive?00:11
tim_yes, I have an extra backup on an external usb.00:12
wesley_etfb so its not a app that i can run freely in kde400:12
etfbNo, you can - you just have to trigger it via this appletty thing.  Hang on, I'll find the command...00:13
ForgeAusare they going to have a kde4 update on the main ubuntu servers?00:13
ForgeAuseven if its proposed or backports or whatever..00:13
Carla1989LeeJunFan: This time I am trying to install within the usable desktop only. And the other change this time is, I am going with the Guided partitioning of 2 partitions each for Ubuntu 8.04 and Kubuntu 8.0400:14
Carla1989LeeJunFan: Let's see if it can partition the drive00:14
ForgeAusCarla, kubuntu-desktop is the only metapackage you need... it will install all you need of kde00:15
Carla1989ForgeAus, that was too techy for me00:16
LeeJunFanForgeAus: Carla1989 is having a problem even completing installation.00:16
LeeJunFanhe was on a different train of thought.00:16
etfbwesley_: install network-manager-gnome and nm-applet, then run nm-applet to open the manager.  Dunno why it works, but it does.00:16
ForgeAusohhh kay...00:16
ForgeAusliveCD's are easier00:17
Carla1989LeeJunFan: The status bar hasn't moved from 0% for the last few minutes.00:17
etfbwesley_: But this is old news - Edgy or before.  May not still work with the bleeding-edge betas.  Good luck!00:17
ForgeAushehe probably best if you install 2x kubuntu liveCD's then pure gnome/ubuntu-desktop-ize the other :)00:17
Carla1989Oh! Another error! "Resize operation failure. An error occured while writing the changes to the storage devices. The resize operation has been aborted."00:18
ForgeAusCarla is there any data on the partitions you need/want to keep?00:19
Carla1989No doubt, this is the same error failing installation00:19
ForgeAusI don't recommend resizing if you can avoid it00:19
ForgeAusbetter to create whole new partitions00:19
Carla1989I thought I was trying to do the same00:20
ForgeAus(2x ext3 and 1x small swap)00:20
Carla1989by resizing one larger partition into two smaller partitions00:20
sevenseeke1hello, I am trying to set my fqdn but can't figure out how.  I first tried with the network settings gui, then with an alias in /etc/hosts and finally with /etc/hostname but nothing seems to work when I type 'hostname -f'00:23
sevenseeke1do I have to restart network services?00:23
sevenseeke1oh, btw this is kubuntu hardy 8.0400:24
ForgeAusno Carla00:24
ForgeAusyou don't resize you remove them all and create them to the size you want00:25
ForgeAusno need to resize that way00:25
ForgeAusso in your head round down how large your hard drive is (say its 160 gig, round it down to say 150, then make 1 75gig partition, and another 75gig partition and whatevers left over goes into a swap partition00:26
Carla1989Okay, this time I went with the second option of Guided Partitioning for one entire partition. It's has scanned the filesystems, created EXT3.. and now Copying the files over00:27
Carla198927% done.. abd waiting00:27
ForgeAusohh kay00:27
ForgeAusthis means you only have one whole disk00:27
LeeJunFannot going with swap?00:28
ForgeAusno space for the second partition to put the other ubuntu (or kubuntu) on00:28
Carla1989I hardly care.. I just need this laptop to work.00:28
ForgeAusok Carla your the user... you seem to know what you want00:28
ForgeAusbut I must say I do recommend having a swap partition00:29
Carla1989Oh Yes, I forgot to mention it. It did create swap automatically this time.. and yes the other point, It formatted the entire HD before doing anything.00:29
Carla198942% done. :)00:29
ForgeAusCarla its meant to format that installer does that00:29
ForgeAusso that you have a brand clan spankin new Kubuntu install each time00:29
Carla1989Yes, I am happy. When I was trying manual install, it could not even pass formatting stage.00:30
ForgeAusCarla, I think you could, you just needed to understand it a little more...00:30
ForgeAusbut when these things are new I can understand how easy it is to get overwhelmed by them I remember my first foray into linux :)00:30
ForgeAusI lost my windows partition to it...00:31
DarkriftXthats not a bad thing though, thats linux AI trying to save you00:31
ForgeAusof course this was windows95 or 98 at the time...00:31
ForgeAussomething like that00:31
DarkriftXwindows detected!! must save user!! format windows partition and remove all traces of the Microsoft Virus!!00:32
LeeJunFanyeah, doing manual can be tough for newcomers, who forget to do such things as setting a mountpoint for partitions correctly.00:32
ForgeAuslol Darkrift... no it was bad it was a crappy cli partition program that you needed an expert with a law degree in order to tackle understanding how to use it..00:32
goldmetalcan someone help me with vpn? i am using kvpn, i got connected. but soon after 5 seconds i am disconnected. 'route -v' did not show my new route, but ifconfig showed a new ppp0 interface.00:33
ForgeAushehe Lee I've used linux for a while now and even I don't remember to set a root mount point... so I let it complain and tell me :)00:33
Carla1989Under sda, there were two partitions as it showed me first, I edited sda1 (the entire HD) to be root and EXT3 filesystem and the other partition as swap. That's all I did, and I hope I did it right.00:33
Carla198961% done now.00:33
ForgeAusgoldmetal interesting question, I don't know enough about vpn to help you I've never actually used it this way00:33
Carla1989*and I hope I was doing it right.*00:34
ForgeAusCarla you pretty much had to have done it right the installer doesn't let you continue unless you have a valid root partition...00:34
ForgeAusthats all that is defined as "right" in this case...00:35
ForgeAus(it may or may not be what you wanted but thats a whole other question)00:35
Carla1989I agree00:35
LeeJunFannvm that the swap is probably 1/2 of the hd, but that's okay for now. hehe00:35
Carla1989It's a small thingy, some 5 digit size if I remember it right00:36
LeeJunFanugh, my shift/capslock keeps getting lost by switching vt's in vmware.00:36
ForgeAusLee if it is thats a good thing :)00:36
ForgeAusremoving a swap drive is no problem...00:36
ForgeAusremoving remaking you can pretty much do what you want with swapspace, I just recommend that you keep at least SOME00:36
ForgeAuslol Lee :)00:36
ForgeAusI know the feeling00:37
LeeJunFanForgeAus: that happens to you too/00:37
LeeJunFani thought it was just me.00:37
Carla198974% bravo00:37
ForgeAuswell I aren't one to switch VT's often but yes00:37
ForgeAusit has happened to me keyboard concurrency issues with a key being assigned to an unexpected function by a "wrapper" program00:38
ForgeAusbut then I'm an emulation freak from way back00:38
LeeJunFanall my modifier keys seem to not work now, no shift,ctrl,alt. so no way to shift to another vt and back to f7 to see if it cures it.00:38
* ForgeAus remembers discovering RiscOS fondly... 00:38
alx54hmm hi there... I am a bit sad... I really love kubuntu but it's so slow! when I move around windows they drag behind, sometimes even the curser drags although I dont do anything on my machine, just listening music....  has anybody good advice on how to accelerate graphics? I use 8.04/3.5.9 default settings and the proprietary driver that was recommended during installing, my hardinfo report: http://paste.ubuntu.com/47027/00:38
Carla1989Copying files, Creating Locales stage is done! Creating Users is done!00:39
Carla1989Scanning the Mirror now. :)00:39
ForgeAusLee because they're used for other function in the VM00:40
ForgeAusI mean for the VM itself not inside it00:40
ForgeAusie alt probably opens the menu bar00:40
ForgeAusnote this means the virtual machine program your using hasn't been designed very well lol00:40
LeeJunFanForgeAus: it's vmware, running kubuntu installer, i ctrl-alt-shift f1 within vmware to switch vt's. it could be any number of things i suppose. i should check for updates with vmware, as well i'm using kde4 and compiz so who know's what the real culprit is. i haven't use vt's within vmware in a long time - so i can't point to any 1 thing as being the one change.00:42
DreadKnightany way to share files between my kubuntu kde4 boxes? both using the same router...00:42
DreadKnightlan basicaly00:43
LeeJunFanlol - i can't use exclamaiton. brb00:43
DreadKnightscrew samba, don't wanna configure files and such T_T00:43
ForgeAusuh thats because control + shift means something to vmware00:44
ForgeAusyou can set that behaviour I'm sure00:44
ForgeAus(also vt's don't need shift afaik00:44
ForgeAusjust alt+control last I remembered...00:44
etfbAnyone know how to get VPN working in Kubuntu 8.04?  I'm trying to connect to a Windows box at work and it seems to be deeply b0rked.00:44
DreadKnightthat guy left a while ago00:44
ForgeAuswb Lee00:45
LeeJunFanyay, I've got all my keys again. lol. That's annoying.00:45
ForgeAussamba isn't the only way I'm not sure what kpf  (kde public fileserver) uses but theres also nfs00:46
ForgeAusor P2P via websites/ftp/whatever00:46
DreadKnightnfs also hard to configure00:47
ForgeAushehe then samba sounds like a great idea :)00:47
ForgeAusof course theres also physical media, like memory sticks (ie usb keys) and CD's and stuff00:47
DreadKnightsamba also hard to configure :P00:47
DreadKnightwant to share a thing on my home lan00:48
ForgeAusif you have kde3 you can rightclick your kicker (ie taskbar) and add kde public fileserver easy enough00:48
ForgeAusthat probably does lots of the config for you as long as you have whatever protocol it uses installed00:49
DreadKnightnever used that; but i have kde4 on both boxes near me00:49
ForgeAusgmm not sure that kde4 has that available00:49
ForgeAusI may just shut up now...00:50
DreadKnight:D thanks for trying00:50
ForgeAusit comes under the heading of... I guess: ... misdirected efforts to assist...00:50
ForgeAussamba is harder when you have to manually edit the samba.conf file00:50
ForgeAusKDE has at least dialogs to set it all up00:50
DreadKnightwell in kde4 there is "share" tab under properties of a folder; but when i activate the button under it it gives me a "kdesudo error"00:51
ForgeAus(I don't know if gnome has the same...)00:51
* ForgeAus shrugs00:51
ForgeAusKDE4 isn't ready yet really... for some of these kinds of things00:52
ForgeAusdon't get me wrong KDE4 is good its just... not KDE300:52
DreadKnighti know00:52
DreadKnightwell as i recall that doesn't works as well in kde3..00:52
LeeJunFanCarla1989: glad to hear. Thanks to ForgeAus too for helping out while my KB was ticking me off.01:03
* Carla feels refreshed on the new kubuntu!01:04
* Carla1989 asks seriously?01:05
ForgeAusHardy Ha Ha Ha :)01:05
* ForgeAus thinks he's seeing double double01:05
* Carla is no double01:05
* Carla1989 i think i agree with you01:05
mnhow can I make a .iso of / ?01:06
Carla1989Thanks to ForgeAus too . :)01:06
ForgeAusthats why I think I'm seeing double double01:06
ForgeAushey mn, um you just start a program to design a .iso (like k3b) and add / to it!01:07
ForgeAusthat simple01:07
Carlaoh really? I guess its about time to leave you guys at it. There are other needy people to eat you up. :)01:07
ForgeAusonly I 'm not sure why you'd want to01:07
Carla1989Yea Carla, you're right. Let's go and have a chilled beer!01:07
ForgeAusbacking up and restoring is a much better idea usually01:07
ForgeAus(otherwise symlinks can be a pain among other things)01:07
szakulechi, fish doesn't seem to be working properly- it rejects a valid username (which I confirmed by ssh'ing to the box)- any ideas?01:08
ForgeAuswb mn01:08
Carlabye byez01:09
ForgeAushav fun01:09
ForgeAusuh szakulec, I have no eye deer01:09
mnForeAus: wb?01:09
ForgeAusand without legs its still no eye deer!01:09
ForgeAusshort for welcome back01:09
mno thnx01:10
ForgeAusits the yw's after a thanx that still sometimes get me! I keep forgetting it :)01:10
ForgeAus(stands for Your Welcome)01:10
mnim just not used 2 seein chat speek on irc01:11
ForgeAusmay I ask why exactly you wish to copy / to a CD?01:11
mnso do you how I can make a .iso of / ?01:11
ForgeAusI already answered taht01:11
ForgeAusbut I'm thinking what your asking for is likely not to suit your needs depending on what exactly your trying to do that for01:12
mnWell, I want my custom linux on a cd01:12
ForgeAuscopying / to other media is a hazard mostly for symlinks among other things...01:12
ForgeAusok to create a custom LiveCD theres tutorials on the net (mostly they take ubuntu-minimal and add packages to it I think)... check them out they're more likely to bring about the results your looking for01:13
ubottunfs is the network file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo for information on installing and configuring NFS.01:13
ForgeAusits not just as simple as copying / to an .iso01:13
ForgeAussymlinks = symbolic links they're files (analogous kinda to shortcuts in windows) that link to another file or directory somewhere else01:14
ForgeAuswhen you copy them they may break depending on the path...01:14
ForgeAusor worse they may remain dynamic and refer to things that aren't there anymore if the other media is removed!01:14
mnwell, i just wanted to use this if I could because ive already customized it with 3rd party and proprietary software01:14
mnlinux uses alot of symlinks doesnt it01:15
ForgeAusMN perhaps your better to say um... back it up and restore it to the CD? would that help?01:15
ForgeAusie back up ur HDD somewhere into a file, then restore that file to the .iso media?01:15
ForgeAusyeah LInux tends to use them, they're handy01:15
dr_willismn symlinks can be very handy. :)01:15
dr_willisexpecially compared to the 'windows shortscuts' :)01:16
ForgeAusI don't know if that .iso will be bootable however...01:16
ForgeAuslol dr_willis ok go dump on windows... I'll just sulk ok?01:16
mnhow does one make symlinks?01:17
ForgeAustheres a program ln01:17
ForgeAusthat you can use to create them01:17
dr_willisForgeAus,  had to explain to a guy the other day why under windows - the program he was using was trying ot load his Document.lnk    - instead of the file it was pointng to. :)01:17
ForgeAus(kinda like creating a directory except your creating a link instead..01:17
dr_willisjust rember kids.. a hard link. is identcal to the original file. :)01:18
ForgeAuslol dr_willis :)01:18
CarlaHey Guys, I am back with a beer. :)01:18
CarlaHow do I get streaming movies on kubuntu?01:18
CarlaFlash/DivX format01:18
dr_willisCarla,  clarify a bit.. You mean Watch some streams? or stream your own?01:18
ForgeAusyou need a plugin01:19
ForgeAusand probably a web browser and/or vlc01:19
ForgeAusnote both of those formats are non-free01:19
CarlaSo which plugin is this exactly.01:19
ForgeAusflash-plugin-nonfree I think does flash video01:19
ForgeAus(say youtube website)01:19
ForgeAusand DivX well I dunno I guess its handled in DVD, etc packages ???01:20
dr_willisI normally install the w32codecs pack, and the kubuntu-restricted-extras package.01:20
CarlaSo I'll just search for it on konquerer.. and install it from there01:20
ferohello, do you read me?01:20
ForgeAusnot konqueror Adept01:20
dr_willisI was thinking divx was handled by the mpeg stuff.. but i forget.. Ive never had issues playing divx.01:20
ForgeAus(adept is the package manager for Kubuntu its where you install/remove program parts (called packages from)01:20
ubottuadept is the Kubuntu package manager. Howto: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AdeptHowto01:20
Carladr_willis, can you elaborate on the process01:20
Carlaw32codecs, and kubuntu-restricted01:21
dr_willisCarla,  install those 2 packages01:21
dr_willisthat will grab 80% of the stuff you would ever need. :)01:21
dr_willisand i cant imagine what the other 20% would be01:21
ubottumedibuntu is a repository of packages that cannot be included into the Ubuntu distribution for legal reasons - See http://www.medibuntu.org01:21
ForgeAus(from the commandline (ie open a terminal window (if you like use the program konsole, same thing) and type sudo apt-get install w32codecs kubuntu-restricted-extras01:21
dr_willisYep. w32codecs come from Medibuntu repos.01:22
ForgeAusit will ask you your password01:22
Carlapackage w32codecs is not available01:24
ForgeAusthats because you don't have the repository in your /etc/apt/sources.list01:24
dr_willisCarla,  its IN the MEDIBUNTU repositories :)01:24
EagleSnyou need to install it from medibuntu packages01:24
ForgeAusbut don't worry using Adept is an easy GUI way to edit that...01:24
CarlaOh, so how do I add it into the other repo. list01:24
ForgeAusif you read above theres a link to read01:24
dr_willismedibuntu homepage has a command you cut/paste also..  is another way01:24
CarlaOkay, I have Adept opened up01:25
ForgeAusoh ok dr_willis01:25
ForgeAushehe Im all backwards today01:25
CarlaI need the address of APT Repo.01:25
ForgeAushelping people out from the wrong end of the stick!01:25
EagleSnAdept -> Manage repositories01:25
Carlaso that I can add the complete command01:25
dr_willisSee http://www.medibuntu.org01:25
ForgeAusCarla yes you need the address of the repository to add it01:26
ForgeAusdr willis is trying to tell you how (of course that webpage may give you commands that don't require adding the address personally)01:26
dr_willisSee http://www.medibuntu.org -----------> sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list01:26
dr_willisand it adds them in a nicer way01:27
ForgeAuswhast the -O ?01:27
CarlaThe page does not have the Adept manager command for hardy01:27
Carlasudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list01:27
ForgeAus sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list01:28
Carlathis is for konsole, right01:28
EagleSnyes, copy and paste that command in konsole01:28
CarlaI need one for adept01:28
EagleSnforget Adept for now01:28
EagleSnclose Adept01:28
Carlaoh, okay. :)01:28
dr_willisYou could of allready had the stuff done from the command line interface in the time it took me to write this statement..01:28
EagleSnrun that command01:28
EagleSnafter that, run this one: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update01:29
ForgeAusouch I have too many non-standard repos!01:29
Carladilipgarg@CrashingVictory:~$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update01:30
CarlaE: Type 'sudo' is not known on line 56 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list01:30
EagleSnoh oh, problems01:30
dr_willisHmmm. sounds like som sort of typo happened somewhere01:30
DarkriftXanyone know how to add trackers to a downloading torrent in ktorrent?01:31
CarlaOh, looks like kubuntu isnt that easy to chew01:31
cilkayCarla: sudo -i then enter your password. Copy/paste all that stuff above again this time without the sudo.01:31
ForgeAussure it is01:31
cilkayCarla: Nah... you're just making it harder than it needs to be :)01:31
EagleSnCarla its like you typed bad the command to add repositiry01:31
dr_willisCopy/paste is so handy. :)01:32
EagleSnit seems there is a word "sudo" inside source.list01:32
CarlaOh, whole of the command is in the sources file01:32
ForgeAussometimes a little too handy in this case it seems01:32
Carlathat wget command01:32
ForgeAusno you don't put the command in the sources.list file01:32
ForgeAusyou type it on the command line of konsole01:32
CarlaI didn;t do it.. seriously.01:32
ForgeAusrofl :)01:33
ForgeAusI didn't do it, nobody saw me do it, you can't prove anything :)01:33
ForgeAus(of course that means I'm likely guilty as sin)01:33
morghanphoenixquestion, why would kubuntu have weird stats for my battery charge when fedora on the same system has the right stats. Things like saying my battery is overcharged, and that I have 15 minutes of battery right when I unplug despite the fact that I have a two hour battery life.01:33
CarlaNow how do I get that removed01:34
ForgeAussame way you added it I think01:34
dr_willisim not sure what typo he did to add it..01:34
dr_willissudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list01:34
dr_willisdosent even touch the sources.list file01:35
ForgeAusCarla is a he?01:35
Carlaomg! did someone just change my gender??01:35
dr_willisForgeAus,  could be an ALien from alpha-centri also. :)01:35
ForgeAusI think they probably typed it in in adept's manage packages ?01:35
ForgeAusrofl dr_willis :)01:35
dr_williscould be an FBI agent, or a 300lb Garbage collector also...01:35
ForgeAusor Tau_Ceti, even Rigel! :)01:35
CarlaHow do I get that line removed from that sources file01:36
ForgeAusmore likely a Vampire trying to gain our confidence :)01:36
=== atmarte is now known as pop3000
morghanphoenixSpace vampires, eh?01:36
dr_willisCarla,  if its in /etc/apt/sources.lst you edit that file as root.01:37
dr_willisand correct the mistake.01:37
dr_willisE: Type 'sudo' is not known on line 56 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list01:37
dr_willisI would bet theres a 'sudo' at the front of line 56 for some reason01:37
ForgeAusare there any other kind?01:37
morghanphoenixprobably dropped the command into the gui where you only need to add the address.01:38
ForgeAusto edit the file as root you might wish to type kdesu kate /etc/apt/sources.list in either konsole (a terminal or command prompt)... or by rightclicking the desktop and selecting run command01:39
Carlamorghan, yes - I remember doing that01:39
ForgeAusof course theres always xterm if you'd prefer :)01:40
DarkriftXerm... my ktorrent screen is like 4k pixels high and wont let me resize it. what can i do to fix that01:40
ForgeAusktorrent now theres a great application :)01:40
CarlaUpdating medibuntu packages right now01:40
ForgeAusI've never had it do that01:40
morghanphoenixNothing wrong with xterm, but if you're using kubuntu why not spring for yakuake.01:41
morghanphoenixNot like you're doing much for running light with KDE going anyways,01:41
ForgeAusmorghan first you need to install yakuake01:42
ForgeAusbesides I prefer konsole01:42
morghanphoenixTrying to kill my battery totally, see if that helps anything with this weird battery monitor thing.01:42
Carlaw32codecs and restricted extras are installed.01:42
morghanphoenixMaybe if it dies on it's own once it'll work right again01:42
ForgeAusawesome Carla :) great!01:42
ForgeAussee you can do it, and its not that hard!01:43
morghanphoenixHad to turn the power management off though, kept hibernating me despite the fact my battery was working fine.01:43
=== hal is now known as Hal9000
ForgeAusjust takes a while to adjust to really01:43
morghanphoenixI like yakuake, just hit F12 and get a whoe bank of konsoles pop up out of nowhere01:43
=== Hal9000 is now known as Hal90001
CarlaForgeAus, yes. What's the next step01:43
ForgeAusnext step?01:44
CarlaCan I just start watching DivX movies now01:44
ForgeAusyou should be able to01:44
morghanphoenixWell, at least it's a whole bank on mine.01:44
CarlaHmm, let me try01:44
wesley_sites say i dont have java but i have installed01:44
ForgeAusyou do of course have to have a source of DivX movies to try it with01:44
wesley_i use amd64 8.1001:44
ForgeAuswesley no plugin?01:44
morghanphoenixHmm, -10 min power01:45
ForgeAusfirst of all which java do you have? ecj, sun or what?01:45
morghanphoenixFunny it's still working fine.01:45
morghanphoenixBut the actually power light is blinking01:45
morghanphoenixDoes the OS send a signal to that?01:46
wesley_ForgeAus that what the sites says no plugin ( uh java ? sun ?01:46
ForgeAusoops gcj if I can type it right01:46
ForgeAusdunno morghan01:46
alexander_whats up guys?01:46
morghanphoenixkubuntu-restricted-extras package installed?01:46
morghanphoenixeasiest way I knwo to get most everything01:46
ForgeAuswhich site wes?01:47
ForgeAushey alexander01:47
alexander_how do you guys like ubuntu?01:47
wesley_morghanphoenix yes i installed that package01:47
ForgeAusI don't I love Kubuntu instead :)01:47
morghanphoenixI dodn't care for gnome01:47
wesley_but it still sayes i dont have java01:47
morghanphoenixDon't really like kubuntu that much either, but the premade packages make it worth while.01:48
alexander_i love ubuntu01:48
morghanphoenixI swear it's becoming the third OS01:48
alexander_it is basic but still has a little touchness to it01:48
CarlaNopes, the flash player is "greyed out" and divx player doesn't even show up.01:48
morghanphoenixWindows, MAc or Ubuntu01:48
morghanphoenixIf you use linux you'll have to take apart the deb and figure out why it won't run on debian.01:48
alexander_Windows if for gaming01:48
alexander_thats it01:48
morghanphoenixWindows isn't even for that01:49
alexander_then what is it for lol01:49
morghanphoenixI run games better with wine than with xp01:49
alexander_haha same01:49
alexander_WoW FTW01:49
morghanphoenixHeh, more warnings, wonder if my battery really is about to die01:49
morghanphoenixTHat'd suck01:49
morghanphoenixa few months old and allready down to a 20 min battery time01:49
morghanphoenixI hope it's just some kind of bug01:50
EagleSni love vista01:50
morghanphoenixBatteries aren't covered in my warranty01:50
morghanphoenixheh, my battery time has gone up though01:50
morghanphoenixIt was negative and now it says 3 minuted remain01:50
morghanphoenixHow do you get a negative time on battery life if it dies at zero?01:51
morghanphoenixq minute01:52
morghanphoenixmake that 101:52
CarlaForgeAus, Do I have to install some linux compatible DivX plugin?01:53
Carlaneither flash, nor DivX videos are working01:54

nitebirdHey, can anyone help me with a Wireless USB issues in Hardy?01:56
nitebirdI've plugged-in the Linksys WUSB54GC which should work out-of-the-box with Hardy01:57
nitebirdI've even tried ndiswrapper01:57
nitebirdBut although I can see the interface in the Network Manager01:57
nitebirdEverytime I enable it, it immediately becomes unenabled01:57
nitebirdThere's an onboard wireless card that isn't agreeing well with Linux01:58
nitebirdSo I thought that there might be an IRQ conflict01:58
nitebirdSo I threw irqpoll as an boot argument for the kernel01:58
nitebirdBut that in no way solved the problem01:58

rkroetchI am trying to run some servers on a machine that is heavily firewalled by IT. Right now I can access port 22 from the internet, but no other ports I've tried. Anyone know an easy way to find what ports can be accessed from the internet?02:16
rkroetchIf the ports don't have a server running on them, they won't show up as open in port scanners, so it seems rather difficult to figure out which ones are open02:16
nitebirdrkroetch, I know that some programs, like utorrent, check to see if your torrent software can use the port you specified or if it might be slower because it's behind a firewall02:21
nitebirdYou might want to try that02:21

htgfHello. How do I setup wireless access on Kubuntu.02:35

mnhtgf: will you give us some more details02:44
mni just recently had to connect my linux system to wireless02:44
mnhtgf:  if you cannot connect, get ndiswrapper and install this driver:  w70n501.inf from intel.com02:47

huui want migrating from windows to linux. how?03:51
mnhuu: we need more info03:52
matr1xdownload linux, jump right in03:55
huumy company is using system windows, we want migrating from windows to linux03:55
huuall system03:56
matr1xwell you're using linux already it seems03:56
matr1xwell it really depends on what you want to migrate03:56
matr1xdepends on what your business does03:57
matr1xif it has software that runs only in windows, you should look for linux alternatives or if they can run through wine and/or dosemu03:57
matr1xas you are presumably.. german, i do believe there is a fair amount of linux use in that country in that language.  im sure you could find some testimonials online from various companies that have done the switch03:59
draikhuu: I wish my company would do that. Our systems are sluggish and it's all due to memory hog apps being run by our leads.04:01
draikI think there are books on the migration and how to do it.04:01
draikIt's been a while, but I think I saw a book which helped with the migration. It was a bit of a "this app in Linux replaces the use of this win app...."04:02
draikIIRC, it also helped with installation and everyday use.04:02
huuthank you very much!04:03

surgyand I want a copy of kubuntu06:22
surgyIf i remember right there used to be a dvd version06:22
surgyor would it be ok to burn the cd iso to a dvd?06:23
ubottuFor playing DVD, see http://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/desktopguide/C/video.html - "libdvdcss2" can be found at !Medibuntu or (for Feisty and earlier) http://wiki.ubuntu.com/SeveasPackages - Try k9copy (available in !Universe) for backing up DVDs06:23

surgywell i think i found a torrent of the file06:39
surgythe latest stable kubuntu dvd is 8.04 right?06:40
dwidmannsurgy, you can burn the CD ISO to a DVD, and current is 8.04.106:40
surgyand it will boot just fine?06:41
dwidmannsurgy: in K3b you'd go to "Tools -> Burn DVD ISO image", select the ISO image (doesn't matter that it's actually CD size), and yeah, burn it and it'll boot right up.06:41
surgyim in win crap xp right now06:41
surgywill i be able to use the other 2.4 gb of space for other things? opr will it automaticly take up the entire disk?06:42
dwidmannsurgy: I think it'll probably take up the whole disk.06:42
surgyahh ok well thatl be fine06:42
dwidmannsurgy: Not that it should matter that much, price-wise you can get DVDs just as cheap as CDs anymore.06:42
surgyalso are there any problems with the amd64 bit version that I should be aware of?06:43
surgycompatibility problems or anything?06:43
surgyi used to use the x86 version but I have an x2+ cpu now06:43
dwidmannsurgy: Well, that might depend on some laptop hardware ... but for the most part on most hardware things are okay.06:43
surgywell desktop, geforce 8800 gt, 2gb ddr800, 2.8ghz athlon x2 5000+, with realtek 8 channel audio06:44
dwidmannsurgy: all of that should work okay06:45
surgycuz i couldnt get my onboard 8channel audio to even work in windows06:45
dwidmannsurgy: the audio can be hit and miss even with very similar chipsets though06:45
surgyim using a crappy 16 bit 1 channel audigy card....06:45
surgythe defualt driver isnt going to cut it for my onboard sound huh?06:46
dwidmannsurgy: it should06:46
dwidmannsurgy: Some people have had trouble, most people seem to be okay.06:47
dwidmannsurgy: oh, and if it doesn't ... keep in mind that 8.10 should come out in about 5 or 6 weeks06:48
surgythats going to have a stable version of kde 4 right?06:49
dwidmannsurgy: Well, same version that's available to users of 8.04 right now06:49
dwidmannsurgy: they've been pretty good about supplying us with packages as things are released06:50
dwidmannsurgy: It'll probably be released with KDE 4.1.206:50
surgymy first dvd burn on a sata dvd +rw06:51

zorglu_ActionParsnip: in theory :)10:43
ActionParsnipzorglu_:  does 0.8.6 not work on your system/10:43
zorglu_ActionParsnip: nope10:44
zorglu_ActionParsnip: it is ok, i will wait 2-4 weeks. maybe somebody will build the package10:44
MrKenniedoesn't look like it's in backports either10:44

WolvenHi, i just have a slight quiery, when i login my pc establishes a connection to an IP i don't recongise or see any need for it to. It's over the www protocol, should i be worried?10:45
zorglu_ActionParsnip: yep this is a possibility10:45
zorglu_ActionParsnip: i could do a VM with gentoo on it, and run vlc in there10:45
ActionParsnipzorglu_: or use another player like mplayer10:45
zorglu_ActionParsnip: on the other hand i would have to learn and maintain a  gentoo just for that10:45
MrKenniezorglu_: apt-get build-dep vlc ? and then go compile! :)10:46
zorglu_MrKennie: same thing that i said to ActionParsnip :)10:46
ActionParsnipWolven: is the ip an internet ip or a local ip?10:46

WolvenIts an internet IP ( its ) i have a DSL connection via a router.10:48
callawayActionParsnip how come the windows cannot ping the linux machine while linux can ping the windows machine?10:48
zorglu_MrKennie: i think it could do it. but i dunno how to make it10:48
zorglu_MrKennie: ffmpeg doc is sparse to say the least10:48
ActionParsnipcallaway: windows is weird10:48
ActionParsnipcallaway: maybe your firewall is blocking the local traffic10:48
callawayActionParsnip ah yeah that could be it10:48
MrKenniezorglu_: I used it in the past to convert stuff for playback on my psp and I've experimented with flv stuff too.10:49
MrKenniezorglu_: there is a nice guide on it somewhere, one sec10:49
metty_actually, it IS possible to highlight syntax with nano, just configure the nanorc file..10:49
callawayActionParsnip ok samba allows printers on both machines to be shared by eachother?10:49

ActionParsnipetfb: connecting to one, or running a vpn server?14:17

EagleScreennoaXess did you test with Ubuntu (not Kubuntu) or other?16:56
EagleScreennoaXess you also should test with kernel 2.6.27, it is on Intrepid, and if it works, you should mention it on Launchpad16:58
noaXessEagleScreen: but 2.6.27 isn't available for hardy right?16:59
EagleScreennoaXess i am going to check it17:01
noaXessEagleScreen: i don't see it in adept_manager17:02

EagleScreeni am going to check if you could install it over hardy17:03
EagleScreenyes, it seems you can install it without problems, but do not remove your current kernel17:04
noaXessEagleScreen: wow.. hm..17:04
noaXessEagleScreen: and where are the repos for intrepid?17:04
noaXessor your information about it?17:04

noaXessbe away for a while.. can you post it private?17:05
noaXessEagleScreen: aha thanks..17:05
EagleScreeninstall the "linux" metapackage17:05
[pyro]so you can install kernel from intrepid in hardy? hmm i wonder if that will fix my wireless problem.17:06
EagleScreenit is possible17:07
EagleScreenyou can try it17:07
[pyro]yeah ill just be sure to keep the current kernel17:07
[pyro]i think ill just grab the deb's and install them by hand17:08
EagleScreenan ubuntu kernel is equipped with multiple .deb packages17:08
