Snowballwhen I gave KDE 4 a try I really disliked it a lot02:19
ardchoilleSnowball: You can install Hardy, but in Intrepid, kde4 is the only choice for kde02:19
KDeskSnowball: dont you like 4.1, or do you need 3.5?02:19
SnowballKDesk, first ... I dislike 4.102:19
ardchoilleSnowball: Me too, I'll be staying in Hardy until it's no longer supported02:19
Snowballardchoille, what chance will we have in the future?02:20
Snowballardchoille, I feel like WinXP -> Win Vista02:20
KDeskwhy you both dislike kde 4.1?02:20
SnowballKDE 3 -> KDE 4 is kinda same shock02:20
ardchoilleSnowball: There are dozens of other window managers. I plan to switch to Window Maker or fluxbox when Hardy is no longer supported02:20
acee12345<KDesk> i guess i go back to 8.04 or even 7.10 untill these issues are fixed02:20
SnowballKDesk, just because *g*  (+100 more reasons)02:21
ardchoilleSnowball: http://xwinman.org/02:21
Snowballthank you ardchoille02:21
aitdI use both 3.5 and 4.1 Mostly use the 3.5 because 4.1 crashes during some rather critical points.02:21
KDeskSnowball: Hardy will be suported with kde 3 12 months more, still then kde 4.3 will be out, and I think it will be very good.02:21
aitdCan't have that... :(02:21
SnowballKDesk, well when I tried KDE 4 the last time,  I did not even get a chance to edit the height of the "kicker"02:22
ardchoilleKDesk: you have a good point, I may try kde4 in 12months, things should have quieted down by then02:22
SnowballI wanted 2 rows of minimized windows02:22
Snowballand there was no chance to,  only 1 row02:22
Snowballand all the simple preferences and options like in KDE 3 were gone02:23
Snowballit was so annoying02:23
KDeskSnowball: did you used kde 4.0? 4.1 is much better, and kde 4.2 will be ok to replace 3.5 I think.02:23
ardchoilleSnowball: Oh, didn't know that. I don't even use a taskbar02:23
Snowballardchoille, no need for minimizing windows?02:23
KDeskSnowball: Now it is posible with and plasmoid from kde-look.org02:23
Snowballguys, gimme a tip please....  Kubuntu 8.04 or 8.10 ?02:24
SnowballI need to install now or in 6 hours02:24
Snowballbut no chance for a later installation02:24
KDeskMaybe if you tray K 8.10...02:24
KDesktray the live cd a few minutes02:24
Snowballacee12345, I have an ATI chip in my laptop :)02:25
ardchoilleSnowball: If you install Interpid now and keep it up to date, then you will have the same system as when it's released as stable02:26
KDeskacee12345: but that is with fglrx I think with the free/normal driver it *should* be ok.02:26
acee12345KDesk so how do i track the issue none of my resources seem hogged02:27
KDeskI have a friend that uses kde 4.1 with also no panels and with many plasmoids in the dashboard, it is also useful02:27
Snowballardchoille, I am not sure how I can think of that .... in debian times it would be like installing from "testing"  and later install "stable" packages02:27
ardchoilleSnowball: This is no debian ;)02:27
KDeskSnowball: only change the hardy with intrepid in the sources.list02:27
ardchoilleSnowball: The repos used for the RC will be the same repos used for the stable, the only thing is that the repos will be updated with new packages so you only need to update your system to keep up02:28
KDeskacee12345: ok, lets, see. run this in a konsole:02:28

epAfter using 3d my nvidia 5200 fx for weeks, it suddenly stopped working.  Everything is fine using the generic 'nv' driver.  Can a video card just go halfway bad, e.g.  2d will work but 3d wont?  The reason I suspect this is that I now get a black screen booting into win2k and this used to work as well.  Any ideas on what th problem could be?02:49
acee12345KDesk so i installed something it didnt like and i now have no clue what02:50

favroit might be mounted already in /media03:11
glade88hello.. after the latest update, I could not at all use kernel-- the system starts, but I cannot launch any apps, and it takes forever.. Using the oldest does work, but when I launch any app (say dolphin), there is an unneeded and unnecessary lag to launch the app for about 3-4 secs..03:12
ubuntu__I checked media...it's not...ok, directory made03:12
ardchoilleThen you need to mount the drive to the mount point.. it's likely /dev/sda1. so try: sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/wintmp03:12
glade88ubuntu__: sudo mkdir /media/disk && sudo mount /dev/sdax /media/disk -- where /dev/sdax is the device link to the drive displayed by typing "sudo fdisk -l"03:13

alarmhello there, i need some help with an application that autostarts without knowing how :)10:33
Zharfbazhang_, thanks10:34
alarm it is about compiz-fusion . first i did create an executable sh file in the Autostart dir10:34
alarmand it did start. after removing the file compiz was still running on every boot.10:34
alarmremoved also every entry from ksmserverrc , but still the same, compiz starts10:34
bazhang_alarm, how about setting visual settings to none10:35
alarmhow do i do that ?10:35
alarmi mean on which part ? compiz , kcontrol ? where is that setting10:35
bazhang_alarm, I am currently on gnome; the quickest answer would be found in #compiz-fusion10:36
alarmthey do not know , at least not the users that are now in the channel :)10:37
bazhang_well I can take a guess then :)10:37
charolastradoes the audio preview in konqueror need any special packages?10:41
bazhang_alarm, does alt f2 kwin --replace turn off compiz?10:42
alarmstopping it is not a problem10:44
alarmthe problem is that it starts on every log in10:44
bazhang_there should be a setting for visual effects; you need to set that to none10:45
alarmand i want to change that for the moment at least, as something is going wrong with systray icons and i want to check one by one10:45
alarmwhere is that ?10:45
alarmkcontrol ?10:45
bazhang_alarm, the only thing I can suggest is go into adept package manager and remove all compiz stuff10:47
bazhang_the alternative is wait for someone running kde to come and help out :)10:47
alarmehe ok . i did some changes, lets see what happening10:48

ubottuTo make programs start up automatically when you log into your KDE session, run all programs that you want to be started and close all other programs, then select 'Save Session' in the K menu. Alternatively, create a !symlink to the wanted program in ~/.kde/Autostart - See !boot for starting non-interactive programs at boot19:28

W_Swrite anything that specifies anything=)21:15
dr_willisX now uses a 'auto config' type feature. the xorg.conf can be very minimal - you however CAN still edit/tweak the xorg.conf file by adding in the proper lines, or by using an older xorg.conf21:24
Dragonathis there a music playing program that can match the visualizations of winamp?21:27
dr_willisI like bmpx, theres other players out there.21:28
dr_willissongbird is nice also.. but its not in the repos. gotta getit from their page.21:28
Dragonathcan they play the winamp ones too or is it just their own?21:29
dr_willisNo idea. I imagine winamp ones are winamp specific21:29
dr_willissome media players out there can or at least could use winamp skins.. not sure how many still do however.21:29
Dragonathok thanks21:30
jimmy51_dr_willis: so... how do you modify your setup from the cmd line?21:30
dr_willisjimmy51_  modify what excactly?21:31
jimmy51_dr_willis:  i'm using a KVM, which apparantly masks the true monitor in use to the system.  i was about to manually specify the monitor in xorg.conf, but it says Configured Monitor (and the settings are automatically configured, so the settings are ignored)21:31
jimmy51_where would i go to set that, if xorg.conf isn't the true config file for xserver?21:32
dr_willisive seen several people in here with KVM issues.. they have to add a 'modes' lne to the xorg.conf file21:32
dr_willishttp://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-276511.html has some examples.. of xorg.conf with modes  lines.21:33
dr_willisYou dont use the whole xorg.conf shown.. its just to see how mode lines are  defined and where they belong.21:34
jimmy51_so xorg.conf is still important?  i'm confused because the comments in the file make it sound like it's been replaced with some other store21:34
dr_willisX is very 'auto configuring' these days..  you can still use xorg.conf - and settings in  it will be used if found21:35
dr_willisevery new release of X - seems to make it better and better at auto configuring.21:35
jimmy51_ah, so is it a "configure on boot so it's not stored persistently" type of config, with the exception of making exceptions for xorg.conf settings?21:36
dr_willisyour KVM case is a special case..  the kvm switch is not giving X the infomation it needs to properly get the mode lines.21:36
dr_willisconfigures when X starts.. not exactly on boot.21:36
dr_willisYou are the 3rd person now in 2 weeks ive seen with KVM Issues. :)21:36
jimmy51_it does decent... it just flickers a lot when the screen needs updating21:37
