lufthanzahow do I remove the multitude of kde html docs on my computer?00:27
izzyblufthanza, I'm not sure, but this might pint you in the right direction:  dpkg -l | grep doc00:30
izzybI'm guessing kubuntu-docs would be the one to remove00:31
izzybbut possibly others00:31
mike-solidusI need help getting kubuntu to see my sata drive on an intel ICH10 chipset  I already have it installed, I just neet it to somehow see my hd00:31
lufthanzaizzyb: thanks, I've been trying to find an easy way to see what's installed00:31
izzybdpkg -l will do that for you00:32
lufthanzaizzyb: i had found kubuntu-docs before, sadly, a file it needs to alter is corrupt or something00:32
izzybwhat does it complain about?00:33
lufthanzaizzyb: now it's complaining about "subprocess pre-removal script returned error exit status 1"00:34
lufthanzaizzyb: I need to create an firefox-homepage alternatives file to replace the corrupt one i deleted00:34
izzybhmm, odd, doesn't look like kubunut-docs has any dependency issues on my system00:35
lufthanzaizzyb: it tries to modify firefox-homepage on mine, but it's deleted00:36

izzyblufthanza, I'm not sure what the problem is and I'm not very good at fixing broken package problems.  they tend to leave me frustrated also :(00:40
_2reinstall the package that contains the file.00:40
lufthanza_2: easier said than done -.-00:41

_2lufthanza ok if that didn't throw errors   you should be able to remove your "package"00:47
lufthanza_2: kubuntu-docs is still complaining about no alternatives for firefox-homepage00:48

some_dudeany idea what files kcron actully is writting to ?01:00
Agent_boblufthanza kubuntu-docs generated it.    so.   sudo apt-get install --reinstall kubuntu-docs && sudo apt-get remove --purge kubuntu-docs01:00

Agent_bobincase that didn't come through before the reset.01:00
Agent_bobsome_dude writting to ?01:01
Agent_bobsome_dude would depend on the job i guess01:01
some_dudeit has to write to like /var/spool/cron or my local crontab or something01:01
lufthanzaAgent_bob: already tried reinstalling kubuntu-docs01:02
lufthanzaAgent_bob: no luck01:02
Agent_bobsome_dude you mean when you add a job ?01:02
Agent_boblufthanza did you run that command or not  ^ ?01:02
lufthanzayes, i ran sudo apt-get install kubuntu-docs --reinstall01:03
some_dudeI can't find the job, and it would seem cron can't either01:03
lufthanzaBUT I JUST FIXED IT MYSELF!!!01:03
* lufthanza dances triumphantly01:03
lufthanzathe secret was 'sudo update-alternatives --install /etc/alternatives/firefox-homepage firefox-homepage /var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/firefox-hompage 1"01:04
* Agent_bob <rolls eyes> that command is in the postinst script. 01:05
lufthanzaAgent_bob: well, for some reason the postinst script refused to run01:06
=== root is now known as Guest5653
lufthanzaAgent_bob: also, where can I access a deb file's post install scripts? It would be helpful if i ever run into something like this again (and I will considering the week I've had).01:07
Agent_boblufthanza i'm hesitant to tell you...01:07
Agent_bob /var/lib/dpkg/info/01:07
Agent_bobyou can break things thre.01:08
lufthanzaAgent_bob: yeah, well my stuff is already broken01:08
* Agent_bob <rolls eyes again>01:08
lufthanzaAgent_bob: like last night i found out the man executable was missing, and the man-db package was broken too01:09
Agent_boblufthanza you removed /etc/alternatives/  ?01:09
Agent_bobor running intrepid ?01:09
lufthanzaAgent_bob: nope, hardy heron01:10
lufthanzaAgent_bob: and i had to remove /var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/firefox-homepage because it had become corrupted01:10
Agent_boblufthanza you should never have to enter /var/lib at all.01:11
Agent_bobthat's like the reactor room of a nuke sub01:11
lufthanzaAgent_bob: well, how would you have handled a corrupted file within it?01:12
Agent_bobyou aren't cleared to enter that. so stay out.01:12
Agent_bobthrough the package manager01:12

robHowdy everybody04:25
NickPresta!hi | rob04:26
ubotturob: Hi! Welcome to #kubuntu!04:26
robI've used add/remove programs in kubuntu 8.04. To install some programs. How do I update the menus where the installed programs will show in the menus?04:26
robi've tried logging in and out but that doesnt work04:27
NickPrestarob, the menu should be fairly self-cleaning. If there is an application in your menu which shouldn't be there anymore, you can remove it manually04:28
robim more worried about the ones i have installed....they just wont show up.....i should have made myself clearer in the stated question04:29
NickPrestarob, hmm. I know there is a package called 'kappfinder', which will search for applications and add them to your menu. You could try that.04:30
robnickpresta installed that app and tried it but it doesnt show the ones i have installed that are not showing up04:34
NickPrestarob, which applications, specifically?04:34
robbut it did find a few not in menus04:34
robactually not the ones i need in the menus04:35
robgive my a sec to look on add/remove04:35
robachilles life simulator, Adun, Marble, open universe space simulator, planets those are the ones that dont show up in edutainment menu04:38
NickPrestarob, and all these applications have some sort of GUI frontend?04:38
robi would assume that they do.....it doesnt tell how to start them from konsole...if it did i would just make a program launcher for them and put it on the desktop04:40
NickPrestawell, you can create a new menu entry in your menu if you want, to add those items04:40
robWhat about the command $sudo update-menus ? <<<doesnt seem to do much good04:41
NickPrestarob, it should do something but again, nothing is perfect. You can manually add those entries04:42
robok i'll give your idea a try04:44

tt_hey, everyone .. happy kubuntu user here. I use some GTK programs, such as Thunderbird, and they get "C" locale settings. However, if I set LC_TIME to something reasonable, I get the correct time display. Anywhere I can hook in to tell every GTK program to set LC_TIME my way ?10:31
soulsurfer69where are you setting LC_TIME now?10:32
tt_soulsurfer69: in my konsole instance ..10:32
soulsurfer69i know you can make a script with export LC_TIME in it and put it in your .kde/Autostart directory10:33
tt_"export LC_TIME="nb_NO.UTF-8" && thunderbird" gives me the right behavior ..10:33
soulsurfer69so that might work for all gtk programs10:33
tt_soulsurfer69: okay, that doesn't sound so bad, but I was maybe thinking of something a bit more generic .. in a X startup file, maybe ?10:34
tt_I might migrate away from kde, and still want it to work ..10:34
soulsurfer69yeah i was thinking that too when i got this advice10:36
soulsurfer69but since kubuntu uses kdm, i guess the  .xinitrc doesn't get called, so the only way that i was made aware of was the Autostart scripts10:37
soulsurfer69but I'm sure there's a better way to set your LC_TIME10:37
tt_soulsurfer69: right, right .. well, thanks for the advance. Seems to be a workable solution .. very few things in this world are optimal :-)10:37
soulsurfer69yeah :) i did a quick search though and saw this http://mail.linux.ie/pipermail/ilug/2007-January/091596.html10:38
soulsurfer69but i dont think it's the end-all either10:38
tt_right .. well, putting it in the "global environment" might be the way to go ..10:41

Agent_bob!sudo | eagles0513875 good reading here16:22
ubottueagles0513875 good reading here: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome), or !kdesu (KDE)16:22

ubottueagles0513875 good reading here also: In KDE, use « kdesudo <program> » (Gutsy) or « kdesu <program> » (Feisty and earlier) to run graphical applications with root privileges when you have to. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)16:23

ico2hi, I'm trying to make ubuntu boot from software raid. I eventually managed to make it install. I chrooted into it from the livecd, mount /boot and then installed mdadm which put mdadm in the initramfs. now I can manually assemble the array and boot after it drops me into a shell.   what I am currently trying to do is make it do this automatically. it doesn't seem to be detecting the array, so I've been having to specify the devices, I've been trying to modify16:39
ico2the behaviour of the script in the initramfs to do this for me. I've been editing /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/init-premount/mdadm and then running update-initramfs -u. is this correct? can anyone help me with this?16:39
Agent_bobico2 that's the methood i would use.   you might edit /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/init also.16:41
ico2Agent_bob: thanks, I'll try that, brb16:41
Agent_boberr !scripts/   but you know what i mean16:41
* Agent_bob neglected to point out that the methoods he chooses are often condemned by the others in here, as being "just plain stupid"... ;/16:46
ico2Agent_bob: hmmm, it seems my changes are having to effect at all. I tried putting exit at the top of init and it doesn't do it16:47
ico2it's definitely recreating the initramfs, I deleted it in the middle to check that16:47
ico2but it seems to be ignoring these scripts16:47
Agent_bobyou can't kill init  kernel will panic    that might be why your test failed.16:48
ico2it should have done something16:48
Agent_bobtry   echo boo  in place of exit16:48
ico2good plan, just have to turn silent on so it isn't lost in the sea of kernel messages16:49
Agent_bobor both16:49
ico2ok, it's definitely not running16:50
Agent_bobhmmmm...   it's not using initrd in place of initramfs   or  your's not editing the wrong one ?16:51
Agent_bobyour's  ?16:52
ico2definitely using initramfs16:52
ico2and there is only 116:52
ico2and it's definitely getting generated by update-initramfs16:52
Agent_bobico2 so you are saying that it's ignoring it's own files when generating a new image     </blinks>16:53
ico2Agent_bob: stracing it shows it only opens /etc/initramfs-tools/update-initramfs.conf and the output file16:53
* ico2 goes to see what this config file contains16:53
ico2nothing interesting16:54
ico2this is off16:54
Agent_bobico2 ummm hmmm i'm curious too.16:54
ico2i'm not sure how this is possible16:55
Agent_bobthey have changed this stuff around,  i have /etc/mkinitramfs/initramfs.conf in place of your /etc/initramfs-tools/update-initramfs.conf16:57
ico2my bad16:57
ico21 moment16:57
ico2it forks and i forgot to tell strace to follow it16:57
Agent_bobbut that conf file is not the issue i can tell you that without looking at it.16:58
gm04030276ok...problem...my sound keeps dying. I was on with this problem a few days ago and someone told me to sudo alsa force-reload and that eventually worked...this time it didn't :(16:58
ico2ok, it does read the file16:59
=== root is now known as Guest44250
ico2it's possible that it is reading an old version on boot16:59
Agent_bobico2 you can also mount the image file and look around in it   just to be sure what is there.16:59

HariharakadanI am curious. If I do a lot of pausing and resuming with this ISO download on bit torrent will it cause it to become corrupted? Also my service flakes out a lot.17:44
faileasHariharakadan: no. torrents will check for it17:44
HariharakadanAh thank you. :)17:44
faileasthats why they are better17:44
HariharakadanDidn't know. Kinda new to bit torrents. :)17:45
HariharakadanI like 'em every minute though.17:45
faileasbest thing since sliced bread IMO ;p17:45
faileasespecially for large files17:45
HariharakadanYea :)17:45
HariharakadanBack in the day I used to download Redhat ISOs on dialup. Took 2 weeks to find out it was corrupted when it finished ;p17:46
HariharakadanThis upgrade to Hughes net is kinda worse then Dialup at times.17:46
faileasconnected through a router?17:47
HariharakadanNa, the modem acts as a router / modem. :/17:47
faileasrouters can choke on too many connections17:47
HariharakadanAlso it cannot be modified on the customers side.17:47
faileasmight wanna mess around with the torrent client ;p17:48
HariharakadanThere used to be a trick where you decommission / recommission the modem and it would reset your FAP for the day.17:48
HariharakadanThat's about all I can really do with it.17:48
HariharakadanMight be able to finish the entire ISO at 3:00-6:00AM EST. That's the only time where the FAP doesn't count.17:49

HariharakadanAh thank you. :)17:52
HariharakadanKinda new to burning ISO's to. Been stuck on Dialup for almost 6 years.17:53
faileasyou *could* order ubuntu disks17:53
faileasbit of a wait, but very shiny17:53

Hariharakadaner on a new one+17:54
faileaspondering doing it when i upgrade from hardy17:54
HariharakadanNever put it in a computer till I got one that I could fully install it to as well. Did a CD check and only one file was damaged.17:55
HariharakadanAir blasted the drive and tried it again then it failed when it was installing.17:55
timi just installed kubuntu 8.04 x64 and i have a problem, when there ara 2 windows and ich click in the middle of the unactive, nocthing happens, i always need to click the bar on the top to activate a window17:55

mefisto__I alternate between 2 different mirrors in sources.list depending on which is faster at the time, or sometimes one will have a file missing or corrupted. I'm wondering can I have both mirrors listed in sources.list so I won't have to switch between the two21:24

mefisto__xjohnthomasx: try booting without the splash screen and see what's happening when the boot process stops21:49
xjohnthomasxmefisto__: how?21:49
xjohnthomasxhow do i do that man?21:50
mefisto__at the grub boot menu, press "e" to edit the menu item you're booting, and remove "splash" from the kernel line21:51
mefisto__eg, this line -->  kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-21-generic root=UUID=0b528250-97b3-427b-b182-58da289af0b6 ro splash21:52
xjohnthomasxok ill try now21:54
xjohnthomasx1 sec21:54
xjohnthomasxshould i do 'recovery mode'?21:54
mefisto__no, just do a normal boot, but remove the "splash" part, then press enter, then press "b" to boot the changes you made. there are instructions at the bottom of the screen while you're doing it21:56
xjohnthomasxk it's going.. we'll see21:58
xjohnthomasxit's doing loading please wait.. and it's not going further..21:58
mefisto__xjohnthomasx: I should have said remove "quiet" too21:58
zabbadappa second (PATA) HD that is rarely used (just backup of files) refuses to spin down ... hdparm -y /dev/sda will spin it down, but only for a few seconds. What is accessing it?21:58
xjohnthomasxrestart the whole thing delete splash and quiet somewhere? ok ill try21:58
mefisto__and maybe replace "quiet" with "verbose" to get as much info as you can21:59
xjohnthomasxk.. right now it's stopping at eth0: rtl 8168c/8111c...21:59
xjohnthomasxthe wireless was actually working fine back in the installation tho..22:00

biopodhi, after removing compiz from kubuntu 8.04 (runing kde 3.5) Kwin stops loading on login in. any way I can fix it?22:01
xjohnthomasxmefisto__: you see?22:02
rgreeninglook for a file compizasWM22:02
rgreeningremove it (I believe). It gets left behind and shouldn't if you purge rather than remove the package22:02
mefisto__xjohnthomasx: do you have an ethernet cable plugged in? and is the wireless named eth0?22:03

=== sotirispaf is now known as {tux}
{tux}guys anyone in mood to help me on sth />22:10
mefisto__you could boot from livecd, then mount your hard disk partition and look at the log files in /var/log to see if you can find what's stopping the boot22:11

xjohnthomasxmefisto__: i have no idea22:14
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 !MP322:14
xjohnthomasxnow the live cd is pausing too22:14
mefisto__xjohnthomasx: seems like it might be a hardware issue22:15
mefisto__xjohnthomasx: eth0 is usually an ethernet port22:15
xjohnthomasxmefisto__: selecting safe graphics mode, and entering live cd with that, it works and doesnt hang..22:16
xjohnthomasxmefisto__: now in live cd.. what now?22:17
mefisto__xjohnthomasx: make a directory to mount the hard disk22:18
mefisto__eg sudo mkdir /media/disk22:19
xjohnthomasxmefisto__: they're all visible in dolphin22:20
vgeinteresting, last time i was here was Nov 2007 and still running the same distro, must be somekind of personal record22:20
mefisto__you mean it's mounted already somewhere?22:20
xjohnthomasxmefisto__: i can see all the partitions of the install in dolphin.. /, /home, /usr, /var, /tmp22:20
xjohnthomasxwhat am i supposed to do22:20
mefisto__xjohnthomasx: that's just the livecd I think. look in media:/ in dolphin to see if your hard disk is there22:21
xjohnthomasxyes, i see all the disks in media22:22
xjohnthomasxi see the var/log22:22
xjohnthomasxwhat am i lookin for in there?22:22

ubottuWireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs22:24
xjohnthomasxvge: you an expert?22:24
xjohnthomasxi see kern.log.. what do i want to look in there?22:25
vgeabout what?22:25
xjohnthomasxmy new install 8.04 keeps hanging on boot22:25
xjohnthomasxi dont kno what to do22:25
xjohnthomasxit worked a few times. i did the recommended 65+ program update. then i reboot. now it hangs at the load splash, same point always.22:25
vgehmm, have u checked the logs as mentioned?22:26
mefisto__vge: it's hanging at eth022:26
xjohnthomasxvge: where/how? Im in var/log right now, but i have no clue what im looking for22:26
mefisto__vge: can you help with which logs to look at?22:26
xjohnthomasxvge: can you help just through to a solution too? : )22:26
vgewell, u can tail them all and check which seems familiar22:27
vgetry boot and syslog?22:28
vgeand how does it hang?22:29
xjohnthomasxjust sort of freezes, i guess..22:29
xjohnthomasxim in syslog.. i dont know what im lookin at /for22:29
xjohnthomasxboot.log had "nothing has been loaded"22:29
vgehave you tried disabling the eth0 at startup if that indeed is your problem?22:30
xjohnthomasxand how do i turn it back on? i dont want to mess up the wireless settings. they were working well.. without anyndiswrapper crap or headache either.. which i had to do other installations previously..22:31
vgecd /etc/network/interfaces on that file comment out the line starting with "auto (# in front)22:32
vgeturning it back on would be removing the comment and doing "/etc/init.d networking restart" or reboot22:33
=== Extrapan100 is now known as Extrapan100^BNC
mefisto__xjohnthomasx: and once you've done that, you might want to disable the splash again to see if the boot messages are any different22:34
vgeand the boot messages are indeed located in syslog, you can pastebin the content of that file if you wanna let us look that file22:36
xjohnthomasxit's pausing now just before where that eht0 would be22:37
mefisto__or maybe just the end of that file if it's really long22:37
xjohnthomasxmefisto__: ideas?22:43

zer0oapparently there's no way cuz itz bugged and doesnt work too well23:08
ubottuHi! Welcome to #kubuntu!23:09
Agent_bobzer0o well any irc server can have limits as well as all channels having limits.   i don't know squat about msn. or yahoo execpt "asl"   that's all i know about that.23:10
mefisto__zer0o: I have problems with msn in kopete occasionally, and when I switch connection to "use HTTP method" it works ok23:10
Agent_bobzer0o there you go   ^   try that.23:11

* dr_Willis guesses theres a 'connections' setting/tab that has a check box.23:13
ubuntoilI still have some issues with my wifi....23:13
Agent_bobor menu23:13
ubuntoilmy connexion is very unstable23:13

ubuntoilmy dist. is kubuntu 8.04, my computer is a macbook pro23:14
ubuntoilI use the madwifi driver23:14
zer0omefiso__: and by doing that i'll be able to log in with invisible status?23:14
mefisto__zer0o: don't know. I've never used invisible status. I just know sometimes msn gets flaky23:15
zer0oand by doing this its better ok23:15
mefisto__zer0o: well the problem I usually have is it just won't connect at all, but switching to HTTP allows me to connect23:16
mefisto__zer0o: I just tried connecting with HTTP method, and invisible seems to work23:19
