mad_ozoy guys ... hello there!00:16
rod_Hi guys  I have a query as I've just installed Kubuntu on my PC Gigabyte GA-81EX motherboard00:17
rod_my issue is no audio evidiently there is no driver known  Is anyone running on one of these motherboards ?00:18
mad_ozcan you please help me? ... i saw kubuntu 8.10 beta was out ... can you tell me if the beta will turn into a "stable" after the stable-version is out? ... i thought about "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" every time there are updates00:19
rod_Hi Mad oz00:20
mad_ozhello rod_00:22
rod_I'm not sure if I'm in the right IRC to ask about Kubunti drivers etc as I just installed00:24
nejoderod_: first you have to find out what audio chip that MB has00:28

White_Pelicanhi all, question about the latest news on the kubuntu site. Does this mean 3.5.10 will be available for intrepid?00:32
stdinWhite_Pelican: no, intrepid will have KDE 400:33
nejodeWhite_Pelican: they say that it's not going to be easy to downgrade to 3.500:34
White_Pelicanso sorry00:35
White_PelicanI'll stick to hardy then :)00:35
Chris_Fosteris there a way to get kubuntu to play a fullscreen video at login until the video finishes, then show the desktop? My desktop looks really slow while loading, and Id like a video to cover to welcome me and cover it until its done loading. any ideas?00:37
rod_Thanks nejode  Just reading through the specs it says the chipset is creative CT5880   plus Sigmatel 9708T codec00:45
rod_The GA-81EX has spdif out too00:46
nejoderod_: go to >>K menu> system> kinfocenter ... to see if your system "sees" your sound card00:49
nejoderod_: or the command "lspci"00:49
nejoderod_: or the command "sudo lshw"00:50

dr_willis'sudo apt-get update && sudo  apt-get upgrade'     then 'sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx'02:39

cuzntand june 2007 is a long time ago software wise02:45
unitypunkis what happened after upgrade02:45
dr_willisunitypunk,  looks like your package manager  is a tad 'confused' about somting getting half way installed.. Not sur what the best way to get it back in line would be.02:46
dr_williscould try the various 'force' options to apt-get02:47
dr_willisbut ive rarely ever had to do that02:47
unitypunkidk how to force something02:47
dr_willisapt-get remove -force nvidia-glx02:47
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about apt-geyt02:48
ubottuAPT is the Advanced Package Tool, which together with dpkg forms the basic Ubuntu package management toolkit. Short apt-get manual: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGetHowto - Also see !Synaptic (Gnome) or !Adept (KDE)02:48
dr_willisThe line of interest is -  "1 not fully installed or removed."02:48
dr_willisso either it needs to be forced to remove, or forced to install.. :)02:48
dr_willisthe following 'might' get it going.. it might mess things up badly also -->       sudo apt-get dist-upgrade02:49
dr_willisOR ---->    sudo apt-get remove --purge  nvidia-glx02:50
dr_willisIve not had to 'fix' apt very much. so not sure whats the best way to fix this issue is.. Im checking the forums  where i searched for 'not fully installed or removed' and found several hits/tips02:51
cuzntmaybe it is stuck?02:54
cuznti try             sudo dpkg --configure -a02:54
cuzntsometimes when its stuck02:54
dr_williswell its not 'not configured' it seems to be half installed..02:55
dr_willisbyt thats another tio try command. :)02:55
DarthFrogI don't think you can force apt-get.  You'd have to use dpkg directly to force things.02:56
unitypunki can force it to reinstall02:57
dr_willisforce it to remove, then reinstall02:57
DarthFrogTry "apt-get -f install"02:57
unitypunksame thing02:58
dr_williswhat 'same thing'02:58
dr_williswhats the error?02:58

KingOfDosi've got a strange problem with the panels at kubuntu 8.1003:13
ubottuAlpha Software: Intrepid Ibex is the code name for K/ubuntu 8.10, due October 30th 2008 - #ubuntu+1 for discussion. Kubuntu Intrepid will have KDE 4 as the default Desktop Environment - see  https://wiki.kubuntu.org/KubuntuIntrepidVersion | Warning lots of breaking software between now and October!03:13
KingOfDoscurrently everything is removed from it (except the current applications)03:13
dr_willisadd new plasmids back to it.03:13
KingOfDoswhen i'll add the K-menu again to it, that will center and cover everything.03:13
dr_willisthen unlock the panel with that cashew at the side. and move them around.03:14
dr_willisand thats the extent of my kde4 knowledge..:) i dont use it much.03:14
jmodyeah you can add take away  anything you like03:14
KingOfDoswhehe, indeed. that should work normaly (i'll guess, now i'd see the option)03:15
KingOfDosbut i can move the K-menu only up and down the panel, and the panel is at the bottom of my screen.03:16
KingOfDosbut anyhow. needs all beta software to be discussed in #ubuntu+1? or is there a special kubuntu beta channel (like #kubuntu+1?)?03:17
knioletonly ubuntu+1 i think03:18
Bartman84Can anyone help me with an Xserver Issue?03:36
=== rita_ is now known as iudfsdv
=== iudfsdv is now known as erjlfb
Bartman84When I try to update my video driver (ATI) I get an error while running the auto installer.  X Server Not Found03:40
dr_willis'auto installer' ? what auto-installer?03:46
Linux_Galoreanyone know what the default version of xorg in intrepid is ?04:02
Linux_Galoreyeah that seems correct04:05
Linux_Galorejust trying to find why the ati driver is hit and miss and only randomly works04:05
dr_willisAnd thats different fromhow ati drivers have been for the last few years - how exactly Linux_Galore  ? :)04:07
Linux_Galoredr_willis: well when I activate the driver then logout /restart X it either leaves me at a blank screen then i force a shutdown (use the off button) and reboot into recovery mode then use the OSS radeon driver and Im fine, but sometimes it takes and the ati driver works04:12
dr_willisLinux_Galore,  i recall a bug with the ati drivers ages ago where if i loged out of X it would bivce me a black screen. I had to edit the gdm/kdm configs and enable the 'always resstart X server' option04:13
dr_willisit affected  just the fglrx driver, not the radeon driver.04:14
Linux_Galorewhen I login after the recovery mode swaps me back to the open radeon driver I see a notice regarding settingsmanager crashing04:14
Linux_Galoredr_willis: this is the new driver04:14
dr_willisTry booting without using GDM/KDm and see if you can 'startx' and quit and get back to a normal screen/start X again..04:14
dr_willisIt may be the same issue/bug poping up again,,, or a totally new bug04:15
dr_willisit wouldent hurt to enble the  'always restart X server' setting i imagine04:15
Linux_Galoredr_willis: you mean do a standard Xinit boot and see if I can get a raw X session ?04:15
Linux_Galoredr_willis: what I fond amusing is that there isnt a captcha script to make sure the desktop has actually started, if not drop you to a vga mode04:16
dr_willisyea.. or just disable  the kdm/gem service.. and see if 'startx' works fine.04:16
dr_willisOn mylaptop i did that  boot to login: use startx for a while till i researched the other fix's04:17
dr_willisthis was on a x200m video card04:17
Linux_Galoreok Im going to enable the ati driver then do a none kdm/gdm login04:18

mixed1234dr_willis, if I take my mouse cursor and I just scroll the pointer down without clicking on anything the desktop changes automatically to the next one, i have been unable to fix that04:30
dr_willisbottom of the screen goes to the next desktop?04:31
MrKennietjhess: in kaffeine, if you edit the xine engine parameters, chand the dvd media device to scd0 and see if that works.04:31

MarshWiggleThanks. I was using kubuntu 8.04 Hardy (KDE4 remix), and just used the distro upgrade feature to upgrade to 8.10 Intrepid Ibex Beta. It all seemed to go well, but now I cannot log in.05:18
MarshWiggleI can get to the login screen, but logging into KDE takes me to the splash screen and only three of the icons load and then the screne just goes blank and returns to the login screen05:19
dr_willistry logging in at the console and see what happens?05:19
dr_williscould be a kde setting issue.. or a login issue.05:19
dr_willissounds like its a kde/settings issue from your description05:19
MarshWiggleah, but likewise the failsafe login just blanks myscreen for a moment abut returns to the login05:19
MarshWigglethanks, i'm not expecting the exact answer, just where i might be able to look05:19
dr_willisI would test by making a new user, see if they can login via kdm.05:20
dr_willisif so.. then that imples that somthing with the old users settings are causing an issue05:20
MarshWigglethanks i'll try that05:20
MarshWigglehow would I create a new user if I cannot get in, i feel a bit catch 2205:21
dr_willissee if you can login at the console....05:22
MarshWiggleokay, i'll go look up how to create a new user in the console05:23
dr_willissudo adduser username05:23

dr_willisIf you mean you have a 'windows game' you wish to try to run under linux, you would do so using 'wine'06:03

Robb_MCan the Ubuntu Educational Addon cd be used with Kubuntu or is Gnome specific?06:22
dr_willisYou could always install gnome if you want under kubuntu - if it needs tnome06:28
dr_willisIn theory - the packages should grab any needed dependencies when they install06:28
Robb_Mim just asking because it said "Ubuntu"..not Gnome or KDE....Ubuntu has become almost generic these days.....heh.06:30
Robb_Mi mean the term itself...not the Distro...06:30
Robb_MI guess the only way to truly find out is...DIY06:31
Robb_Mso...let me get this straight...KDE4 variant of Kubuntu has no updates from canonical?06:32
dr_willisNo 'official' I gather..06:33
Robb_MI heard that from one of my buddies on the forum (I am a member of the beginner team of UF)06:33
dr_willisbut then ya get into whats community supported vs official, vs lts. vs.. whatever.. :)06:33
Robb_Mcommunity support only kinda made me wonder about the updates and stuff.....06:35
dr_willisIve gotten where i just use whats out.. and not worry about it. :) In 6mo there will be a new releae and all sorts of new toys06:36
Robb_Mand its not like i should be scared..as i did do the alpha/beta testing....06:37
dr_willisI just dont find kde4 that useabla at this time.. and its amazingly sluggish on my laptop06:40
Robb_Myeah someone else said that06:45

acee12345i have an ubuntu related question(asking because i got no responce on that channel) i tried to install drivers from the ati website because they were newer than those offered on synaptic but after i did that i did an update wich updated my kernel and upon reboot i got a completely yellow display(with working compiz) and was unable to reverse it so i formatted. now im starting anew and was wandering if one of you might walk me through it so i dont hose 06:55
acee12345version 8.0406:56
dr_willisI would try to get things working without using the ones from the ati web site.06:57
dr_willisMy 'prefered' order to try the things are 'hardware-manager/repos' then 'envyng' then if all else fails - the ones from ati/nvidia06:58
acee12345everything else does fail. for the brief time between when i loaded them to when i rebooted alot of my flickering broken video etc were fixed which was not the case under restricted driver install. doesnt symantec just package the same drive as is posted on ati?07:00
=== danilo is now known as danilo_
=== danilo_ is now known as danilo__
dr_willisthe version in the repos - will tend to be a little bit older then the ones from ati07:03
=== danilo__ is now known as k0rvux
dr_willisbut the ones fro ati . normally have to be compiled/installed for each new kernel update - if you use them07:03
dr_willisenvyng - i hear is not quite up to date as the ones from ati..  but it automates it better07:04
acee12345how does ubuntu package them so such isnt necessary so i might do the same07:04

Robb_Macee12345: yeah, those guys just didnt know....did you try posting on the forums as well?07:08
* Robb_M isnt trying to steer you away...just seeing what routes you took without results....07:09
acee12345not yet07:09
dr_willisproblem with nvidia and ati drivers.. are that often theres  issues with specific cards, and often issues with different versions.07:09
dr_willissome cards/setups just seem to have issues :(07:10
Robb_Mi know that ive had issues with my memory card reader since i started ubuntu....07:10
Robb_Mnot that this really relates to you...it kinda does..but yeah...07:10
acee12345i understand that it worked great untill i updated my kernel07:10
sigraanyone know how to make your display picture show up to others in kopete?  I selected avatar but not showing to others07:10
dr_willisIve had some issues with built-in-non-usb laptop-media-card readers.. thats often due to the varity of the readers.07:10
Robb_Mi think its more kernel relate....yeah.......07:10
Robb_M^ dr_willis I totally agree with that statement....07:11
dr_willisGetting close enought now - you may want to 'try' 8.10 release.07:11
acee12345is there a way to turn off the kernel update07:11
dr_willisIt proberly has newer drivers for the cards07:11
Robb_M8.10 is insanely stable ATM07:11
acee12345i may giive it a go the drivers were release through ati 4 days ago07:12
Robb_Macee12345: you might be able to force the current version of kernel to stay the same...with pinning07:12
ubottupinning is an advanced feature that APT can use to prefer particular packages over others. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PinningHowto07:12
Robb_Mit doesnt let the version update as far as i know....it just ignores future versions....07:13
acee12345any major draw backs to not update a kernel often?07:13
Robb_Myou pin that version.....07:13
Robb_Macee12345: security holes.....07:14
Robb_Macee12345: ^ biggie07:14
acee12345so i just need to be sure i reinstall the xorg every time i update the kenel07:14
Robb_Macee12345: i would update the kernel often if i were you, even if the component doesnt work...it MIGHT in the future..so...update as often as possible.....07:14
acee12345untill its released through apt-get07:14
* Robb_M nods...i think thats a safe way to go....07:15
acee12345ok, any special procedures to manul install of drivers07:16
acee12345i havent installed restricted yet, running on mesa07:16
Robb_Mnot that im aware of07:16
* Robb_M points to the other guys...unless they have something i dont07:17
acee12345i notice that ati doesnt support xorg 7.4 how does 8.10 get around that07:18
Robb_Mi havent been playing around with 8.10 so i couldnt tell you....07:18
Robb_MI believe we are steering away from xorg in the future.....07:18
acee12345oh, what will replace it?nvidia?07:19
sigraI run 8.10 kubuntu. solid stable for me here.  i just cannot get kopete to display my picture to other contacts..is my only problem07:19
Robb_Macee12345: im not sure actually....looking it up though :)07:20
* Robb_M shrugs07:23
Robb_Mall attempts fail07:23
Robb_M(google doesnt know)07:24
acee12345i looked too, nothin07:24
acee12345brother is demanding internet so i must resign my computer. thank you for your help07:24

Gadokenquery: if I install *buntu 8.10 beta, will I be able to cleanly upgrade to *buntu 8.10 come Oct. 30?07:39
baudthiefnah, your machine will catch fire07:40
Gadokendamn I knew it!07:40
* baudthief further pretends to know what he's doing07:40
dr_willisOf course you can07:40
GadokenI just don't feel like reinstalling every  6 months, but 8.10 Kubuntu has stuff I want07:40
dr_willisI perfer to reinstall every 6 mo. :)07:41
Gadokenok thank you guys07:41
Gadokenanyone on the Kubuntu beta presently?07:41
=== Gadoken is now known as FALCON_PAUUNCH
baudthiefgah, viewing gadoken's link crashed my X lol07:47
FALCON_PAUUNCHI was wondering what happened there07:47
FALCON_PAUUNCHdid you get to see it?07:47
FALCON_PAUUNCH<---Gadoken :)07:48
baudthiefnah it openned in Konqueror, trying it in firefox now :P07:48
baudthieffreakin konqueror07:48
FALCON_PAUUNCHthe khtml crashes for some reason07:48
baudthiefbiggest explosion ever :P07:51
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHbit much don't you think07:51
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHdownloading the beta ^__^07:52
baudthiefgod dammit, I hate how youtube is flooded with AMVs07:53
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHcultural thing07:54
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHman KDE4 is fricken' sexy imo07:54
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHI want my dang multimedia button support07:54
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHunsure about installing beta though07:54
baudthiefkde4 is terrible :P07:55
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHI must respectfully disagree07:55
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHand I think 8.10 is only KDE4?07:55
vkep4etoздрасти има ли българи на линия в този ранен час07:55
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHof course you could install KDE3 in an alternate user session, but meh07:56
baudthiefI manually installed it yesterday, I much preferred kde3.5 w/compiz fusion :\07:56
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHI like both to be honest, just lately have a preference for the one07:56
tamaravkep4eto: /join #ubuntu-bg07:56
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHI originally installed 8.04 with KDE3 tbh :P07:57
baudthiefsame :P07:57
baudthiefI guess it depends what you use it for, I've got a dual head setup at home, and couldnt for the life of me figure out how to add an external taskbar to the second screen under KDE4, all the options I'm used to have changed07:57
baudthiefits like moving from XP to vista :P07:57
tamaraHi! I can't change names of shortcuts on the Desktop.07:58
dr_willisI find kde4 at this time to be unbearably sluggish on my laptop.07:58
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHyou can't just add another task bar and drag it over?07:58
baudthiefdr_willis: agrteed07:58
baudthiefFALCON_PAUUUUNCH: Couldnt find teh option, only "add a widget"07:58
baudthiefnothing about external taskbars etc07:58
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHmy laptop is completely compatible, its just as fast (if not faster)07:58
tamaraIn terminal, when I type ls -l, it shows with modified names, but on the Desktop the are still with old names.07:58
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHbut I have an intel chipset07:58
baudthieftamara: wow, thats surprisingly awkward :P07:59
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHmaybe 8.10 baud07:59
dr_willisI got an nvidia card. and got constant video glitzes under kde4 - ive not tried it on the desktop box yet.07:59
baudthiefmaybe, I left it installed anyway, but I select kde3.5 in the session manager before logging in, I'm sure it'd improve alot after some time07:59
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHeven with the nvidya drivers?07:59
INIT_7don't really know what to search for to fix this issue. When trying to play a video off my server on my laptop it will download the video before playing. Is there a way to just stream the video off the server?07:59
dr_willisFALCON_PAUUUUNCH,  yes with the nvidia drivers.07:59
tamaraBefore this I removed entirely my home folder (but got another one with adduser)08:00
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHhm that sucks08:00
baudthiefINIT_7: yeah, you can find "SMB transport" under package transfers like synaptic that work with VLC08:00
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHI love the WM in KDE 4, sexeh stuff08:00
dr_willisINIT_7,  several ways to do it.. if its a samba server, mount the shares so they appear as local directroies - is one way08:00
baudthief*package managers08:00
dr_willisfusesmb - is handy - it can mount the while windows shares/network to one directory you can browse08:00
INIT_7I will try that dr_willis because I know how to mount smb shares08:01
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHhum never tried that08:01
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHVLC can't do it automagically?08:01
baudthiefapparently not08:02
baudthiefit caches the whole file locally before playing08:02
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHhuh interesting08:02
baudthiefI fixed it by installing a plugin a while ago, but I cant for the life of me remember what it was called :P08:02
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHnever tried tbh, never needed to08:02
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHnote to self08:03
baudthiefwow, I really need to poop, but thers no TP to be found in this bathroom at work08:04
baudthiefshould I like, poop first and work out the TP later?08:04
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHsandpaper/paper towels are an option if available08:05
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHperhaps the janitor's head08:05
baudthiefhmm, I could walk to the service station up the road and buy TP, but then my intentions would be obvious08:05
FALCON_PAUUUUNCH"This gentleman is obviously about to crap his pants...look at all this toilet paper."08:06
FALCON_PAUUUUNCH"Sir, you sicken me."08:06
FALCON_PAUUUUNCHwhere do you live, Australia?08:07

FALCON_PAUUUUNCHservice station gave it away :D08:07
baudthiefwas gonna say servo :P08:07

INIT_7mounting works perfect. and it's nicer to just have the network shares mounted right on the computer and not have to browse to it every time thanks again dr_willis08:09
dr_willisINIT_7,  yep. I really dislike how gnome/kde file manager does the whole browsing shares stuff.. causes a lot of little issues08:10
INIT_7yeah, does kde4 fix any of that08:10

FALCON_PAUUUUNCHmeh, I got my question answered08:16
daleachhey, I should be embarrassed to ask this but, I'm thinking of getting a dell, and using the video card from this PC.  It comes with an integrated video card.  Can I later add in a pci card?  In general (?) and particularly will ubuntu of course.  Sorry, I know nothing about integrated video cards :(08:23
=== george_ is now known as wesleyp
daleach*with ubuntu08:23
dr_willisDepends on what the motherboard supports.08:23
wesleypHey all. I am trying to copy and paste a folder over one in my USR dir, how do I do this with root privledges?08:23
dr_willisI would hope any new machine would have a PCI-Express slot free for video card upgrades08:24
daleachdr_willis , grr i thought u might say that heh08:24
dr_williswesleyp,  best to use the shell. and the sudo command.08:24
daleachright so if it has pci express.. then08:24
wesleypwhat sudo copy /home/file /usr/file >08:24
dr_williswesleyp,  or cheat like i do.. install mc, then run 'sudo mc' and that way you got a handy file manager you can run as root. :)08:24
daleachit would probably be doable right?08:24
wesleypnice i'll do that08:24
daleachwhat would you do disable the integrated via software08:25
dr_willisthe command to copy is 'cp' and you will need to use some artuments to do it recursively08:25
daleachI have been so removed from the whole hardware and gaming world heh08:25
dr_willisdaleach,  yea. I would be SURE to check the machines and be sure it has a 'pci-express slot' avail for upgrades08:25
wesleypdaleach: i like your style. <GUI all the way for me08:25
wesleyp<hard core gamer08:26
dr_willis'hard core drinker' :)08:26
wesleypWish I had a mod to post my pc info to channel but Im running Dual Core E2180 2.0Ghz, 4 gigs of ram and two 8600 SLI mode08:27
wesleypwhich runs everything I throw at it currently08:27
daleachI'm a programmer who doesn't know about these hardware advancements :-\08:27
unitypunkwhy cant i access the drive wubi is installed on08:28
daleachbtw wesleyp yeah u can prob do .. it through the gui08:28
daleachin kde right? there's a way to go admin mode or something i forgot08:28
vkep4etowhere I can get security updates ?08:28
wesleypthere no ubuntu binary for MC daleach?08:29
daleachi'm in blackbox now my kwin broke does anyone knwo about this one?08:29
daleachi wasn't the one who recommended mc :)08:29
wesleyperr sorry08:29
daleachvkep4eto if you do sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade you should be good...if your sources file is left the way it was  or are you doing stuff more complicated?08:30
wesleypvk left08:31
daleachhah mc u guys meant midnight commander?08:31
daleachdidn't realize it08:32
dr_willismc is in the repos08:32
dr_willisYes. :)08:32
daleachand yes08:32
dr_willismc = midnioght commander08:32
daleachi was just going ot say08:32
daleachits there08:32
wesleypone more thing, Id like to upgrade to KDE4 from KDE3 but last time I did that, it gave me double menus in my Kicker. So I am assuming I have to upgrade then remove KDE3?08:32
daleachsudo apt-get install mc08:32
daleachu mean 3->4?08:32
wesleypgonna have to add some, u know which repos?08:32
daleachif u do08:32
wesleypyeah kde3 upgraded to 408:32
daleachsudo apt-get update;sudo apt-get upgrade08:33
daleachid' imagine08:33
daleachu'd be able to see mc08:33
daleachhow long ago did u install ubuntu?08:33
dr_willismc + screen handy. :)08:33
daleachdr_willis he shoudl see mc no problem right? like we can?08:33
dr_willis!info mc08:33
ubottumc (source: mc): midnight commander - a powerful file manager. In component universe, is optional. Version 1:4.6.1-8ubuntu1 (hardy), package size 2059 kB, installed size 5944 kB08:33
dr_willisIts in universe repo.08:33
daleachok so, if I have a pci express slot i should be good you guys think? hehe08:34
daleachits funny because,08:35
wesleypwhats the shell command for Dolphin?08:35
daleachi wonder if i order the video card08:35
wesleypdaleach: what was your full questions? as im running dual pci express cards08:35
daleachbtw dolphin08:36
daleachopens it08:36
daleachwell so, i'm thinking of getting hits pc with integrated08:36
daleach*if* it has a pci express slot i'm sure it does i can prob find that out though in the spec ithink08:36
daleachanyway, can i put one in and overide (turn off completely) the integrated gpu?08:37
daleachat the Operating system level i g uess08:37
daleachits funny I think the system i'm getting there's an option for 2 cards, prob using same motherboard WITH the integrated gpu anyway hah08:37
Nyquist333how do you get the free space listed on a drive, ls does not do it?08:38
wesleypyeah you can08:39
wesleypwell it deponds on the bios some you can, you can only limit the rma you are giving it08:39
wesleypram even08:39
wesleypWhy not just buy a mobo without integrated graphics, much better in the long run08:39
wesleypPlus you can build it yourself at a cheaper cost08:40
dr_willisNyquist333,  'df' command08:40
wesleypuse newegg.com and if you would like you can tell me what you want and i can set you up a shopping cart with compatible hardware and then email you the shopping cart so you can review it08:41
daleachNyquist333 u want to do df -h08:47
daleachfor human08:47
daleachin megabytes08:47
daleachheh wesleyp thanks for the offer08:48
daleachone of the reasons i'm leaning towards dell is i need windows also :-\08:48
daleacha real legal version etc08:48
daleachand its lookin like ap retty good deal08:48
daleach699 2 quad core hah08:48
daleach4 gigs in 2 dimm08:49
daleachits funny one of the things prompting this is my windows xp box finally since 2003 got a virus.. (i run dual boot) i have some .net programming to do, and I have no time to filter through my hard drive now, i guess i could buy another hard drive and use that but i don't want to reinstall a windows don't have a disk etc..08:50
wesleypthats not bad daleach if it includes windows08:50
daleachyeah right?08:50
daleachthat's what i was thinking08:50
daleachthey have such a strong deal with windows usually08:51
daleachi think it gets cheaper to build ur own with higher models08:51
wesleypyeah doesnt sound too bad, for that price you could get an sli rig and more hard drive space but in turn ur getting a 200 dollar os08:51
daleachthey don't have good grpahics cards often etc.. and i don't need a better powr supply etc..08:51
daleachnot really getting it for gaming.. i'll get some other stuff for that again eventually08:51
daleach500 gb hard drive space will be enough for me for now08:52
wesleypwith that price u can get quad proc, good pci express video card, 750 gig HD 4 gigs of ram and 750w ps08:52
wesleyppossibly a second video card08:52
wesleypim about to spend 3k to upgrade this box of mine08:53
daleachhah nice08:53
daleachyou working or a kid or wha?08:53
daleachI guess you work right?08:53
wesleypits not bad as it is but i was to SLI 3 video cards and get a quad 3ghz proc at 120w08:54
daleachI figure since I am in the field, etc... one of these days i'll get some super duper alienware or build one myself etc..08:54
daleachmy brother got an alienware, we REALLY like it, its pretty sweet actually08:54
wesleypbut i am waiting 30 days to see if a new socket is gonna be released or not, theres news of more powerful processors over a new socket comming out dont know if its true or not, if it is i'll buy a new mobo in the base socket class untill more powerful come out08:55
wesleypalienware is over rated inless ur getting an aw laptop08:55
daleachheh, you're a hardcore enthusiast that's cool heh08:55
wesleypyou cant beat the laptops but as far as desktops go, for the price you can build a better machine and even water cool it if ur willing to risk the buck08:56
daleachyeah laptops are always another story08:56
daleachI had a bunch of friends at school08:56
daleachthat did a whole bunch of weird stuff08:56
daleachwith controls for cooling and lighting and stuff08:56
wesleypi dont personally like em because when you pack that much hardware in that small frame your giving up somthing, be it power, performance, cooling08:56
daleachkind of fun08:56
wesleypyour giving something up, now for work, and my wife  i have a couple of lap tops beyond using mine for work i dont use it08:57
wesleypmy brother is a big time programmer who gets a new laptop every 6 months or so, i just buy his hand me downs08:58
wesleypwhats the command to make a .bin executable chmod +x or something?08:59
daleachdepends if u need nah08:59
daleachdon't do sudo08:59
daleachtry without08:59
daleachwhat are u installing that's a .bin? should be careful most things should be like untar and ./configure, make, make install in the *nix environment i'd think if ur not using apt that is09:00
wesleypheres the problem its a .bin file, i just did chmod +x to make it executable and it ran kate when i clicked it09:01
daleachyeah u have to do09:01
daleachit from the shell is easiest09:01
daleachu have ot type09:01
wesleypIts an open source mmorpg game 300 megs in size09:01
daleachof the file name (with the .bin at the end)09:01
wesleypthere we go09:01
daleachafter u chmod it09:01
wesleypthat did it09:01
daleachyeah when u don't do ./09:02
daleachit looks in the $PATH variable type "echo $PATH" to see your path09:02
daleachand . isn't in it, you could put it there but that would be BADDDD09:02
daleachold security threat and well it'd probably just break things in your case heh09:02
daleachactually it still is a security threat heh09:03
daleachbut yeah that's why you need to do that09:03
wesleypnice i'll remember that09:03
daleachheh k09:03
daleachactually for the games to09:03
daleachecho $PATH09:03
wesleypim a nix noob, I mean i have used it off and on since i was 13, and im 26 now09:03
daleachu shoudl write it down09:03
daleachi started 1609:03
daleachand i'm 2509:03
wesleypso for a while I just never retained anything and back then it all seemed like a struggle to do anything, even get drivers and my network card working09:04
daleachbut i've done programming etc, i work in the field and stuff so yeah09:04
daleachand like i've actually learned and forgot things a bunch of times to09:04
daleachthat happens09:04
daleachbut you get better, and things start to make more intuitive sense i guess09:04
daleachand these days you don't even need to be as much of an expert i guess09:05
wesleyplol no you dont09:06
wesleypits all plug and play now09:06
wesleypwhich I like09:06
wesleypand K/Ubuntu is my fav distro yet09:06

Nasjbut now i have to create like ext3 and such and swap09:54
Nasjand i dont now very much about that09:54
Nasjso is there someone here who can help me ?09:54
dr_willisYou need to resize whatever is on there. and free up some unallocated space.09:55
dr_willistheni normally tell the installer to use the unallocatged space and let it do the partitioning.09:55
dr_willisi normally resize the parittion using a gparted live cd..  :) but thats just me.. Not sure   about how the installer handles it.09:55
dr_willisif you are using Vista.. then Vista has a ntfs resize tool thats MUCH faster then gparted.09:56
Nasjthe installer gives a list of all my HDD09:56
Nasjno XP09:56

dr_williseirik__,  you may want to explain the problem in a bit more detail to the channel.12:46
serenitydoes anyone of you know, whether displaylink is supported by xorg?12:46
eirik__well, I just got a new laptop, and when I installed Kubuntu it couldn't find my wireless card. i eventually upgraded to intrepid, and now it finds the card, but it is not working, it's not scanning for networks12:48
eirik__as far as i can tell12:48
dr_willisIts possible - depending on the exactcard/chipset - you need to install some extra packages.12:48
eirik__I have a suspicion that it is because of the HW RF Kill message that shows up in dmesg12:48
blackflag<eagles0513875; yes I know that. But I need something with samba integration, cause I have also M$- clients12:49
eirik__There is a wireless switch with Fn+F2, but kubuntu doesn't seem to recognize that12:49
dr_willisnormally if the module gets loaded.. tha twill turn on the wireless card12:50
dr_willisor so it does on my 3 laptops12:50
blackflagI found ebox for that porpose, but I have DNS trouble wirh ebox, cause I can not Create the DNS Settings needed for M$-clients.12:50
blackflagIm looking for an alternate for ebox.12:51
eirik__what packages would that be?12:51
dr_willistheres somthing mentioning AD in the repos i just noticed..12:51

dr_willisrepos = where the package managetrs get their packages from12:52
eirik__ok so how do I find that package?12:53
blackflagafaik likiese is only the client to connect linux to MS domain12:54
dr_willisYou need to determine your EXACT chipset, and if you evenneed anything else eirik__  it may just be a configuration issue12:54
eirik__ok chipset is Mobile Intel PM965 Express12:58

eagles0513875blackflag: what exactly are you trying to do13:09
eirik__so what do I do?13:10
blackflagI want an ldap server with samba , So that I have an authentication server for Linux and M$ clients13:11
eagles0513875blackflag: not sure how you would do that13:12

DarthFrogWell, personally, this is the way I'd approach it.  Given that there is a new version of Kubuntu coming out in the near future, I'd download and burn a CD of the latest beta.  Then boot into the Live CD from that and see if the wireless NIC works with the latest & greatest.14:40
willluongokcg: No problem14:40
dr_willisassuming the wireless card dosetn need some propriparty drivers14:40
DarthFrogdr_willis: It's an Atheros card.14:41
dr_willisThat means very little to me.14:42
dr_willis100ft rolls of Cat6 was on sale last month.. I got the whold house wired.. From Laundry room to Toilet. :)14:42
DarthFrogwerenerd: You just installed KDE 4.1 on Hardy, right?  You didn't reinstall the whole OS, did you?14:42
DarthFrogdr_willis: W00t!  A wired gigabit home network.  You get serious geek points for that. :-)14:43
dr_willisIts not all gigabit.. yet14:43
dr_willisI had to redo the network to get the 3 gb machines all on the same  loop. :)14:43

DarthFrogThe switch will sort all that out.14:44
DarthFrogwerenerd: Ouch.14:44
werenerdDarthFrog: I wanted to see how KDE 4.1 stood up on it's own14:46
werenerdit is not ready from primetime IMO14:46
DarthFrogI have found knetworkmanager in KDE 4.1 to be a useless pile of donkey dung.  I use the regular Ubuntu networkmanager app.  I'm running Intrepid beta.14:46
werenerdDarthFrog: really? you don't use the kde 3.5 version?14:48
DarthFrogwerenerd: Nope.  KDE 4.1.214:49
DarthFrogI don't know if KDE 3.5 is even available in Intrepid.  I think they've left it behind.14:50
DarthFrogcan you install network-manager-gnome and try it?  I'm presuming that ndiswrapper is working and loading your driver for you.14:50

the_lowok, #ubuntu seems pretty busy, maybe someone here has a quick solution:19:05
the_lowI've got an old machine here running 6.06LTS. It has 12 drives as a raid5-compound which contains a luks-encrypted ext3 fs. In other words: A fsck run takes bloody ages. However, it would like to do one NOW while I would love to simply boot NOW. Is there anyway to circumvent the fsck at startup? ctrl-c won't do the trick.19:05
dwidmannthe_low: you could probably mount it from a livecd, then edit the fstab so that it won't run fsck anymore (or run it less often)19:06
the_lowhm. ok, I had hope there would be a simpler solution that doesn't include digging for a spare cd-rom drive, but thanks :)19:08
the_lowwell, it'll still be faster than waiting 3h+ for fsck to finish19:08
dwidmannthe_low: the end of the fstab lines is two numbers between 0 and 2, the first is dump, the second is pass, if the second number is set to 0 then it won't run fsck, 1 is for the root filesystem, 2 is for things to be fsck'd.19:09
the_lowoh, stupid me, the fstab is even on the unencrypted fs. I'll just use a usb = sata adapter and my notebook19:10

* Robb_M had to re-learn it because of *buntu...i needed help...20:52
Robb_Mnow..im helping :)20:52
Robb_Manyways..got a question for us?20:52
contrastGaMbi_DK: Got cha... I had fiddled with that a while back (I have a home theater PC also). I think I read it's *possible* to get fullscreen apps (e.g., a video player playing a movie, games) to display properly w/ TwinView, but I didn't look too far into it.20:52
Candy|Corpsesnot really20:53
Candy|Corpsesunless you can help me install drivers for nvidia gforce 4 mx 400020:53
Candy|Corpsesi know i cannot be running x server20:53
* Robb_M isnt one of the regulars in here...so i dont really know whos who....20:53
Robb_Mi dont have an nvidia graphics card..so..nope..cant help20:53
Candy|Corpsesim stuck with "nv" driver for now. but its not that bad20:53
GaMbi_DKcontrast, got any links? :O iw spent hours to get this fixed.. also when I download files ti my desktop they show up on TV (the TV is to the left of my monitor)20:54
Candy|Corpseseveryone using kubuntu 8.10?20:54
kr0n05931im using 8.0420:54
kr0n05931I won't even touch a linux beta20:54
Candy|Corpsescheck out 8.10. its pretty neat20:54
Spragieyeah im good on beta20:55
kr0n05931last beta I tried ate windows20:55
Candy|Corpsesit works great for me. and i run an old pc20:55
Spragieim getting ready to install kubuntu over ubuntu20:55
Robb_Mshouldnt beta talk be carried elsewhere?20:55
* kr0n05931 goes back to reading man bash20:55
GaMbi_DKcontrast, thats why im running separated x screens.. then the files ends up on monitor.. and I can change desktops on my monitor and TV is still on the same.. :)20:55
contrastGaMbi_DK: you already have nvidia-settings installed?20:55
GaMbi_DKcontrast, yea.. the newest with envyNG20:56
Candy|Corpsesbut not the drivers20:56
=== Guest12341245 is now known as EvilDaemon
Candy|Corpsesi had to manualy set it to "nv" in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf20:56
GaMbi_DKcontrast, I know how to work with it if thats what you mean.. I changed allot of stuff in the xorg.conf over the last days.. always with a backup ofc.. any tips? :)20:57
contrastGaMbi_DK: i thought that the icons would show up on the desktop of whichever screen is set to be the main screen in nvidia-settings. i might be wrong though - sorry i can't be much help, it's been a while since i messed with it.20:57
Candy|Corpsesbecause it would not start x with "nvidia" drivers20:57
contrastGaMbi_DK: 'fraid not. i googled for a couple hours, got frustrated and gave up on it. :-\20:58
ralphokubuntu 8.10 beats osx and vista add compiz and well its just out of the park20:58
GaMbi_DKcontrast, windows (movies etc) opens on main.. but files dosn't due to rule of "put as fare left as possible" dont know if that can be changed :S20:58
Candy|Corpsesyeah, once i get better graphics card err new motherboard, imma install compiz.. but for now. i like not crashing x20:59
ralphokde4 takes some learning but we all will20:59
Candy|Corpsesive noticed20:59
GaMbi_DKralpho, you'r using 8.10? no problems at all? :P20:59
Candy|Corpseslike your desktop is not really your desktop20:59
contrastmeh... kde 4's not nearly configurable enough for my liking yet. i'm giving it some time.20:59
Robb_Mkde4 and kde 3.whatever are almost totally different?20:59
ralphonone yet im lovin it like mickey d's20:59
contrastRobb_M: yep21:00
Robb_Mmickey d's is da bomb dude21:00
Candy|Corpsesuhmmm. so you hate it? lol21:00

Robb_Mman...relearn KDE...yay21:00
Robb_Mwasnt on my agenda for today..but..oh well :D21:00

MakuseruAre there any programs that let you convert MKV files to MPEG files, I have "Multimedia Converter" and it will do it, but I cant select what audio track and subtitle track I want from the MKV file. Does anyone know any programs that will let me do this?21:01
ralphobig mac rules f flamebroiled chemical taste21:01
Robb_Moh so nothings really changed as far as applications?21:01
Candy|Corpseswt eff is a MKV file?21:01
contrastRobb_M: every kde application has been, or is getting, completely redone for kde421:01
jussi01Kde4 discussion in #kubuntu-kde4 and offtopic discussion in #kubuntu-offtopic. Thanks!21:02
* Robb_M sighs...fun21:02
manishhow do i install the kde themes downloaded from kde-org.com21:02
contrastRobb_M: some radically different, some not so much. kde4's dolphin wipes the floor with kde3's.21:02
Candy|Corpsesman, i really want someone to release music open source music production software that works21:02
jussi01Candy|Corpses: ardour is fantastic!21:02
ralphoonly real problem is nightly builds are sure to break something sooner or later so 8.10 just for fun.21:03
contrastCandy|Corpses: lmms, audacity, ardour, rosegarden - you've tried all of those?21:03
MakuseruCandy|Corpses: its a type of video file that can support more than one video, audio, and subtitle tracks that you can switch between21:03
Candy|Corpsesif you can get the dependencies and make it compile21:03
Robb_Msorry jussi01, didnt realize we had a seperate kde4 room...21:03

GoanHi. Has anyone worked with postgresql on kubuntu21:14
GoanI have just finished installing postgresql to my hardy machine.. but I could not find the documentation for creating a database and start working on it.. on postgresql website21:15
contrastGoan: did you install the postgresql-doc package? if so, it should be under /usr/share/doc21:19
contrastGoan: i just ran "apt-cache search postgresql | grep doc" and figured that'd have what you need, but you might want to check the output of that command to see if any other packages catch your eye.21:20
lokpestsince last reboot, amarok cant play mp3 anymore, the program ask if I want to add support, but doesnt when I tell it to do so21:21
lokpestwhats the package to let amarok play mp3 called?21:21
administratorhello all21:22
Goancontrast, installing the doc package now21:22
contrastlokpest: strange. try "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-restricted-extras" - i forget the exact package, but that'll definitely pull it in if it got uninstalled for some reason.21:22
contrastI'm trying to add a user that will have read+write permissions to everything the default user has access to. Anyone know of an easy way to do this besides putting the new user in the default user's group and giving group read+write permissions to everything I want the new user to have access to?21:23
administratorjust a quick question, what saoftware is best for copying avi's to disk to watch on dvd player???21:23
lokpestno clue what the mp3-package is, dont like restricted-extras21:23
contrastadministrator: if you're looking for something that'll let you create nice-looking, layered menus, i'd say qdvdauthor. if you want something really quick and easy, devede. they're both in the repos, and getdeb.net has newer versions.21:24
contrastlokpest: libxine1-ffmpeg i *think*21:24
contrastlokpest: err, actually looks like it's libxine1-plugins21:25
LjLlokpest, if you type "apt-cache depends kubuntu-restricted-extras", it shouldn't be hard to guess which package provides mp3 support21:25
contrastLjL: good call21:25
administratorthanks very much for your help contrast21:26
contrastadministrator: np21:26
administratorits just that im new to linux and need to know what programs are best to use lol21:28
contrastadministrator: KMenu -> System -> Konsole -> "sudo apt-get install gnome-app-install" -> KMenu -> System -> Add/Remove -> sort by popularity :-)21:30

GaMbi_DKSomething is wrong with my Desktops.. when I apply Desktop effects I can max have two.. when I disable desktop effects it acts funny too.. can I reinstall em or something? plz help ;)21:32
contrastGaMbi_DK: did you install compizconfig-settings-manager already?21:33
GoanThere are changelog.gz file in postgresql-doc directory, but apprently I cant gzip -c them .. gzip -c filename > destination21:34
GaMbi_DKcontrast, yea.. ccsm.. it worked on ubuntu just fine :) but the desktops are acting up now :S21:34
contrastGaMbi_DK: Advanced Desktop Effects Settings (or whatever they call it) -> Preferences -> Switch the bottom combobox to Flat-file Configuration Backend -> Back -> General Settings -> Desktop Size21:34
contrasti've never had much luck with ubuntu's compiz packages, so i've always just compiled it from git and it mostly works perfectly.21:35
administratorthanks very much contrast im doing that now thanks21:37
contrastadministrator: :)21:38
Goancontrast, any info about the documentation on postgresql installation21:38
administratoris this gnome baker??21:38
GaMbi_DKcontrast, still max two :S.. in "Desktop Size" it dosnt allow me to change "Number of Desktops"21:38
contrastadministrator: umm... ?21:38
contrastGaMbi_DK: and you changed the backend to flat-file?21:39
GaMbi_DKcontrast, yea21:39
administratori think i herd something about this program im not sure21:39
contrastadministrator: gnome baker is a burning program, i think, which i definitely would *not* recommend over K3b (Kubuntu's default).21:40
administratoro yea i seen this in the kmenu21:40
contrastGaMbi_DK: strange. have you tweaked compiz a lot? if not, i'd just delete (or move) ~/.config/compiz/compizconfig/Default.ini and see if that fixes it.21:40
administratori tried this program aswell but it wouldnt work for me21:41
contrastadministrator: which program?21:41
contrastGoan: nope, sorry. i know nothing about db's. :-\21:42
administratorsorry k3b21:42
GaMbi_DKcontrast, now tweaks... I removed the ccsm and the compiz from the "add remove programs" or what ever.. is that enough?21:42
contrastGaMbi_DK: umm... probably not. removing packages never touches anything in your home directory.21:43
GaMbi_DKcontrast, what do I do?21:43
administrator"contrast on the konsole it says ldconfig defered processing now taking place" but it not moving21:43
contrastadministrator: yeah, k3b's mainly for burning stuff that's already prepared for being burnt - so you can use devede to make the .iso of the dvd disc, then just burn it with k3b.21:43
administratoro ryt i see now, o i just use the default settings on devede??21:44
contrastadministrator: you should be able to, yeah. it's pretty intuitive.21:45
contrastGaMbi_DK: rm -r .config/compizconfig/compiz21:46
administratorcontrast: so i need ot make it an iso beofre i can burn??21:46
contrastadministrator: well, that's the way i usually do it. i think you can also just convert them to dvd-ready mpegs, or have it create the dvd folder structure containing the videos (video_ts/ and audio_ts/)21:47
contrastadministrator: i know a lot of dvd players will play data discs with avis on them. did you try that already?21:48
administratornope i havent tried that21:48
contrastof course you won't have a menu or any of the niceties that way... if you've got a really slow computer, i'd recommend that since converting the videos to DVD format can take hours. otherwise, just make the .iso with devede.21:49
administratorcontrast: how long should this take to convert to iso using devede??21:49
GaMbi_DKcontrast, .config/compiz/compizconfig/xonfig?21:51
GaMbi_DKcontrast, .config/compiz/compizconfig/config?21:51
contrastGaMbi_DK: ~/.config/compiz/compizconfig/Default.ini - but i'd just delete the whole compiz directory to be sure. note that this will reset *all* changes you've made in ccsm, so you may want to backup Default.ini first21:51
gwp1how do you alt tab or minimize in full screen application (game)21:52
contrastadministrator: depends on a lot of things - length of the video, resolution, bitrate, etc. in my experience, on average, converting a movie takes around two hours on my P4 3.4GHz w/ HT21:52
administratorim only using a 1.7ghz21:52
contrastadministrator: dual-core?21:53
administratoryes dual core21:53
contrasti think devede has a checkbox for utilizing multiple cores for the conversion, so you should be alright...21:53
administratoro ryt ill try anyway21:54
GaMbi_DKcontrast, .config/compiz deleted.. desktops still acting up.. only two of the 4 works.. 1 and 3 will open desktop 1... 2 and 4 will open desktop 221:54
administratorcontrast: so making th iso splits it into sound and picture files??21:54
contrastGaMbi_DK: how are you switching to them?21:55
GaMbi_DKconcernedcitizen, pushing the 4 icons on my bar21:55
GaMbi_DKcontrast, even sorry concernedcitizen21:55
contrastadministrator: no. it just creates a single file which is ready to be burnt as a video dvd21:55
administratoro ryt ok no probs i will try that out, how do we do it if we just want the film and no menu??21:56
contrastGaMbi_DK: the pager doesn't always work right. try control+alt+left/right?21:56
contrastGaMbi_DK: you can set shortcuts for each desktop in the Rotate Cube plugin in CCSM as well21:56
GaMbi_DKflips like cube effect with only two desktops21:57
contrastGaMbi_DK: in Desktop Size - you have horizontal set to 4 and vertical set to 1?21:57
contrastadministrator: the menu's optional. it's pretty self-explanatory w/ devede. :)21:58

chuxxsssanyone no how to change prefs in kmess it keeps opening screem instead of say firefox22:00
contrastGaMbi_DK: there's an option for how the cube is displayed across multiple monitors as well - either in general settings, desktop cube or rotate cube - i forget which one.22:00
contrastGaMbi_DK: you can always use Advanced Search in CCSM to look for a certain option22:01
contrastchuxxsss: i've never used KMess, but most KDE apps are configured via Settings -> Configure <Program Name>22:01
chuxxssscontrast thanks will look again22:02

chuxxssscontrast no  it change 2 update ago22:04
GaMbi_DKcontrast, thx... now it works as in ubuntu.. but damn Id like if I could rotate my monitor desktops and TV separately22:04
