downhill_weellll, ahmos you could try restarting HAL then. /etc/init.d/hal restart00:00
downhill_thanks dr_willis :)00:00
downhill_could *swear* it was the fstab option. good to know.00:00
dr_willis   /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 000:02
ahmoshold on going to try00:03
downhill_that definitely was not firefox. heh00:04
dr_willisthe 'user'  option in that fstab entry allows the user to mount/unmount the device00:05
* dr_willis recalls when 'auto mounting ' of devices - was a tool on the desktop that gave you buttons to mount/unmount things..00:05
downhill_yep yep, back in the day.00:05
downhill_I remember setting mode lines >.<00:06
ahmosevery thing is perfect00:06
downhill_that did it, eh?00:06
downhill_excellent. now you know what to say if someone asks the same question ;)00:07
downhill_come to think of it, dr_willis, I remember restarting HAL for a wine-related problem a while back.00:07

mtannerhello. I have a question about keyboard shortcuts in kubuntu/kde4 8.10...00:22
Nomexousmtanner: What it?00:22
mtanneranybody know in which disk file the keyboard shortcuts are kept?00:22
mtannerBecause the System Settings -> Keyboard/Mouse app GUI doesn't seem to be working properly00:23
Nomexousmtanner: Lots of KDE 4.1 keyboard shortcuts don't work00:23
mtannerThere are 3 different places in kde4 to set up keyboard shortcuts: System Settings -> KB/Mouse, Sys Settings -> Advanced -> input actions, and the kde menu editor00:24
mtannerThey all seem to be conflicting with each other.  And when I tried to set up the shortcut in "Input Actions", it added about 8 new entries under "KB/Mouse"->"Keyboard Shortcuts".00:25
mtannerThe specific keyboard shortcut I'm trying to set up is the one to start Konsole.00:26
Nomexousmtanner: Keyboard shortcuts didn't work for me at all00:26
mtannerNomexous: hmmm.  I see.  Any known solutions?00:26
Nomexousmtanner: You could try upgrading to KDE 4.2 beta00:27
Nomexousmtanner: http://www.kubuntu.org/news/kde-4.2-beta-200:27

DaSkreechAdola: Yes please don't paste in the chan01:52
draikghostcube: Is that English?01:52
lespeaDaSkreech: in compiz you can use ctr+alt+mouse1 to rotate the cube; it doesn't appear that you can do this in kde401:52
AdolaYes, I'm sorry.01:52
ghostcubeafaik yes and its only text based01:52
DaSkreechdraik: Kubuntu should allow you to remove infected files01:52
draikDaSkreech: Ok, thanks. Just wanted to make sure before I try that as an option.01:53
DaSkreechlespea: ah Umm hit ctrl+F11 and you get the same effect I think01:53
draikghostcube: No issue with text-only as I can navigate fairly easily to the file I need on the drive.01:53
DaSkreechWhy do I have cube even enabled?01:53
lespeaDaSkreech: right, I know you can do it with the keyboard, but I want to do it with the mouse (along with a whole bunch of other effects)01:53
AdolaYes, so, anyone think they could help me with this problem with Kopete not connecting on Dial-up, but it will connect on Highspeed... (Same thing for Pidgin)01:54
DaSkreechlespea: well ctrl+alt is the keyboard as well01:54
DaSkreechAdola: Everything else connecys fine?01:55
AdolaDaSkreech: Um, well, IRC.  And, I used a program called "kmess" it connected me.  It's just Pidgin and Kopete01:56
lespeaDaSkreech: that was just an example I used... I just want to know if anybody knows when mapping to the mouse will be possible01:56
DaSkreechlespea: What do you want?01:56
AdolaThey connect on highspeed.  But, now that I'm back on Dial-up.  They won't connect01:56
lespeaDaSkreech: to map things to the mouse01:56
DaSkreechlespea: There is hot corners as well01:56
lespeaDaSkreech: I don't care about the alternatives, if you don't know that's fine just say so01:57
DaSkreechAdola: Hmm dunno has #pidgin died as well?01:57
DaSkreechlespea: I'm not sure what you are asking for:) I'm not big on desktop effects so you want to do all the effects without touching the keyboard?01:57
AdolaI've not asked.  However, I doubt it iwll do much good.  I refuse to use Pidgin.  It's far more buggy (in my case.) Than Kopete01:58
AdolaHowever, I'll ask.01:58
lespeaDaSkreech: just to be able to include the mouse buttons in the bindings01:58
DaSkreechAdola: Perhaps figuring out one will help the other?01:58

DaSkreechszrhawaii: Tried using wodim?03:16
szrhawaiinot yet03:16
szrhawaiinot sure how to use wodim03:16
DaSkreechmason: you'd have to install cmake03:16
DaSkreechwodim /path/to/iso03:17
DaSkreechpretty simple03:17
szrhawaiitrying right now03:18
masonDaSkreech: I now have cmake03:19
masonI think03:19
DaSkreechtype cmake and see if it's a command03:21
masonIt's a command03:22
masonLots of 'em too :P03:22
masonSo, I have 94144-yasp-0.5.tar.bz2 on my desktop. I have no idea as to what I should do now xD03:23
DaSkreechmason: untar it03:23
masonThen do I hit install?03:23
szrhawaii_DaSkreech wodim didnt work03:23
DaSkreechWe shall see03:23

ubottupastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (be sure to give the URL of your paste - see also the #kubuntu channel topic)03:25
masonBecause... quite  frankly, it makes no sense to me.03:25
DaSkreechszrhawaii_: hmm sounds like a burner issue03:25
DaSkreechOr more specifically a burner communication issue03:25
DaSkreech#wodim ?03:25
DaSkreechmason: Paste to the URL above03:25
szrhawaii_http://paste.ubuntu.com/103741/ this is what i got from terminal DaSkreech03:25
szrhawaii_im the only one in that chat line #wodim03:26
DaSkreechmason: thats from the INSTALL file ?03:27
DaSkreechOk you untarred it and went into the directory ?03:28
masonDoes untarring mean extracting?03:29
masonIf so, then I haven't untarred it yet xD Sorry for failing :X03:29
masonBut if not...03:29
masonthen I'm pretty sure I'm in the directory...03:29
masonWell, I extracted it  in I'm in the folder I extracted to.03:30
DaSkreechin terminal?03:32
DaSkreechpress F403:32
masonI can't truly say I know how to navigate there with the terminal =/03:32
DaSkreechso now yu are there in the terminal :-D03:33
masonf4 while in the terminal?03:33
DaSkreechwasn't that hard?03:33
DaSkreech Oh no while in Dolphin or konqueror03:33
DaSkreechIt pulls up a terminal in the directory you are in03:33
masonYeah, got it.03:33
DaSkreechpretty sweet03:33
masonThat's very handy.03:33
masonSo, yeah. I'm in the terminal.03:34
TouchDownhow i set my mozilla firefox as default browser ?03:34
DaSkreechyou can copy the commands from the file there03:34
DaSkreechmkdir build03:34
ubottuTo change the default application for a filetype, go to Konqueror -> Settings -> Configure and then hit "File Associations" (KDE 3), or System Settings -> Advanced -> File Associations (KDE 4). To change your default file manager, change the "inode/directory" and "inode/system_directory" filetypes.03:34
masonThat's awesome.03:34
DaSkreechanyway TouchDown in system settings you can set default web browser03:34
masonmkdir: cannot create directory `build': File exists03:35
DaSkreechcd build03:35
masonDo you still have the pastebin page I pasted open?03:37
masonBecause I don't know what to do at this part03:37
masoncmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release -DKDE-4.1=true ../03:38
masonSo I just paste it all?03:38
DaSkreechcmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release -DKDE-4.1=true ../03:38
masonI did it before03:39
masonI must've copied it wrong03:39
masonafter the input "sudo make install"03:39
masonI get: sudo make install03:40
roconnorI was trying to start a second xsession (in 8-bit mode) and I did "sudo startx -- :1" ... that was really bad.03:40
roconnorwhen I rebooted I couldn't even log in03:40
masonI get: make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.03:40
roconnorbecause it couldn't find .DCOPserver_faris__003:40
DaSkreechtry make then sudo make install03:41
masonSo just make alone03:41
masonthen sudo make install03:41
masonoutput: make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.03:42

SilverRookcan someone help a noob with a kubuntu install to flashdrive ?03:45
DaSkreechthat wouldn't make a difference but sure03:45
masonbash: reinstall: command not found03:45
DaSkreechsudo apt-get install kdelibs5 --reinstall03:46
SilverRookcan i install pure kde to a flashdrive ? without it being a live cd usb-creator thingy ?03:48
DaSkreechmason: what version is this btw ?03:49
masonSorry, but, version of what?03:49
DaSkreechthe plasmoid03:50
DaSkreechThis guy really decided to make it really hard to install03:50
masondaskreech: 0.503:51
DaSkreechSilverRook: I think so03:51
DaSkreechI don't know why you wouldn't be able to03:51
SilverRookwell i am installing now i have had to rip out my HDD's so the install doesnt detect them so i can use GUIDED when installing03:52
masonDaSkreech: I'm thinking of just trying to install a different system monitor03:52
SilverRookcan i then just plug this in to any machine and boot up this ? or will the boot loader screw up ?03:52
MakuseruHi, I seem to be having a problem with a program. It's too long horizontally to fit on my screen, but when i grab the edge to resize it it only lets me make it even longer, i can't  make it any shorter. Anyone know what would cause this, and how i could fix it?03:52
DaSkreechI can't speak for any machine03:52
szrhawaii_is it mount dev/cd0 to mount my cd drive03:53
SilverRookbut asa generalisation03:53
masonI tried a few other ones earlier today, but the were .skz files and I honestly don't know what to do with those.03:53
DaSkreechthose are different03:53
SilverRookthe trouble i had with teh usb-creator was that when i stored files on it from windows ( :S i know ) i got boot errors when trying to boot off the stick03:54
SilverRooki kinda need it to be a multi purpose flash drive03:54
SilverRooklinux in one half and a fat 32 partition on the other half03:54
DaSkreechSilverRook: partition it03:54
SilverRookits 16gb sandisk cruzer so i no worried bout space lol03:54
SilverRookdaskreech thats why i used guided on this install and its cut it in half03:55
SilverRookdoes that mean my linux system will be in the dev/sda1 50% section and my other section is still my fat 32 partition ?03:55
masonDaSkreech: What do I do if the plasmoid I'm trying to install is a .skz  file?03:57
DaSkreechmason: Actually I think you may be able to install it from the addwidgets dialog03:57
DaSkreechmason: the configure with cmake works?03:59
SilverRookmeh.... the installation has hung at 54% :(03:59
DaSkreechmason: do you have  a makefile ?04:01
masonOh, sorry for taking so long xD04:01
masonWas away for a quick second.04:01
DaSkreecha loooooong second04:02
masondaskreech: I believe that the configure with cmake worked...04:03
SilverRookits 4am04:03
DaSkreechSilverRook: Take a break04:03
SilverRooki gotta be at work at 704:03
DaSkreechSee you when you get back from work04:03
SilverRookno point going to sleep now lol04:03
masonWill the makefile be  in the folder that the install, uninstall, etc. folders are?04:03
DaSkreechit's not that hard a problem to solve I beleive04:03
szrhawaiihow do you build a iso file or what program is easy to use to create an iso file04:04
DaSkreechmason: I don't know it should be in the same directory that you ran the command in but check if it's somewhere else04:04
DaSkreechmkisofs ?04:04
DaSkreech!info mkisofs04:04
ubottuPackage mkisofs does not exist in intrepid04:04
szrhawaiigot any other programs04:05
masonDaSkreech: What will the makefile's name be...?04:05
masonI see none.04:05
DaSkreechmason: Hmm04:05
DaSkreechthat's not right04:05
DaSkreechrun the cmake command again and paste the last like 20 lines04:06
szrhawaiiDaSkreech how do i use genisoimage04:07
SilverRookdaskreech i just read this04:07

DaSkreechszrhawaii: read the man pages04:08
DaSkreechmason: duh04:08

masonDaSkreech: Daangit.04:13
SilverRookfeck it i gonna reformat it as fat32 and forget the whole thing too much of a ball ache04:13
masonI did sudo make install and I got: make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.04:13

FrederickMy PC does not allow a partition to be smaller. I tried to resize it both with in vista partitioner and kubuntu partitioner with no luck. Ive ran a defrag and scan disk, what else can I do?04:19
xp-killersidney: googles is not my friend04:20
DaSkreechDelete stuff?04:20
masonDaSkreech: I'm getting a new computer in the future... if I want to get a plasmoid again, do I  have to go through all these commands to get the base set up?04:21
SilverRookis there anyone else that can help me cuz DaSkreech is busy04:21
DaSkreechmason: Just for this one04:21
DaSkreechbut then you should have it down to a few commands04:21
masonBut I'll be getting a new computer... won't I be missing all these things?04:21
sidneyxp-killer: i think it's to help in your searches04:22
DaSkreechnormally I just click on get new plasmoid and choose something sexy from the list to install and then ignore04:22
DaSkreechmason: Few commands away04:22
masonIs it just this certain plasmoid that's strange?04:22
DaSkreechmason: sudo apt-get install cmake build-essential kdebase-workspace-dev04:22
SilverRooksod it04:23
DaSkreechmason: Yeah it's his first so I'm guessing he's trying to limit the people who use it to knowledgeable people so he can get high quality feedback04:23
DaSkreechSilverRook: again? :)04:23
DaSkreechmason: try the cmake and see if you have errors04:23
masonShould I do the Cmake command again?04:23
masonI'm pretty sure it's good now04:24
masonIt actually took time to do all that04:24
masonit was pretty quick before that04:24
masonand the build files have been written to...04:24
masonsudo make install now?04:24
SilverRooki cant stop it installing its up to installing grub now but i'm gonna format it and use it a s live usb after that option seemed to work a lot better but when i tried booting off it before i got boot error for some reasion04:24
SilverRookthis is what i am trying tofigure out04:25
masonGod damnit! Are you kidding me?!04:25
masonSame error04:25
SilverRookwhat the cause of that is rather than a work around04:25
masonDaSkreech: make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.04:25
DaSkreechSilverRook: You have to set your bios to boot other device I think04:25
DaSkreechmason: no makefile ?04:25
SilverRooknope i choose what device to boot from the boot menu04:25
masonNo makefile04:25
DaSkreechmason: last few lines of cmake again04:25

DaSkreechsudo make install still says no rule04:56
masonno rule04:57
masondaskreech: shall I just try a different plasmoid??04:58
DaSkreechI suspect so. You can probably get this working as a project it just need 3 lines in the makefile04:59
masonThis is kind of sad, in a way :'( One day when I'm extremely 1337 with kde 4.1 and installing plasmoids I'll come back and revisit this  f'ing plasmoid that has caused me so much gried.05:00
DaSkreechmason: It's not that hard once you know :)05:02
masondaskreech: The thing is, I probably forgot everything I've learned while trying to get it to work :P05:02
DaSkreechmason: Do you have a Get new plasmoids button on the bottom of add widgets?05:02
masonI have...05:03
masoninstall new widgets05:03

DaSkreechmason: that was on the site for the first one. I didn't realise you had moved to a new plasmoid05:35
rio_it says not authentic hmm I started downloadd despite packages not being authentic :\05:36
masonIt's been working for every 2 others that I've tried05:36
masonI dunno05:36
kalorinis there some way that you can assure yourself that you're running the right driver and that its' working correctly05:36
kalorinfor video I mean05:36
kalorini've got an Nvidia 8600GT05:37
DaSkreechmason: The only thing missing from the makefile you made for the first one is the install rule which should be in the other makefiles05:37
kalorinand it seems REALLY sluggish under kde4.105:37
DaSkreechrio_: Yes no GPG key05:37
kalorinjust lots and lots of video fragments and odd behaviors05:37
* DaSkreech pats kalorin's shoulder05:39
DaSkreechYou are running the right driver05:39
kalorincommon complaint?05:39
DaSkreechIt's working correctly05:39
DaSkreechHow is that for assurance? :005:39
kalorinI feel so much better05:39
* kalorin heads off to bed :)05:39
DaSkreechkalorin: Yeah the nVidia driver kinda sucks for KDE it should be grand in about a month05:39
kalorinok good05:39
kalorinI'm running the non free version, but I just notice the builtin intel driver on my laptop pushes that fine05:40
kalorinon my desktop sluggish as all get out05:40
kalorinwhich seems crazy05:40
kalorin4gb of ram in a E6750 and a 8600GT and you'd think it'd just flat out fly05:40
DaSkreechYeah welcome to driver bugs05:40
DaSkreechIt's the 2D transform I think05:41
kalorinah, every time the screen unlocks there's a ton of mishmash on it from whatever was in the frame buffer05:41
kalorinsometimes you can read it, not very secure05:41
DaSkreechYeah I know05:42

DaSkreechI know 4.2 rocks :)05:52
DaSkreech if you really like pplaying with plasmoids then I'd wait till it's out05:52
masonAre there sites like kde-look with more 4.2 stuff?05:52
DaSkreech a lot of the current in the wild plasmoids are 4.105:52
DaSkreech4.2 is very very nice though it's out in less than a month so you can chill  if you like05:53

DaSkreechmason: F4 ?06:00
DaSkreechrio_: Hmm ?06:00

masonWell that's basically it.06:02
masonDaSkreech: do most 4.1 users enjoy oxygen and stick with it?06:04
DaSkreechmason: Couldn't tell you06:05
DaSkreechrio_: Known bug will be gone in Jackalope hopefully06:05
rio_I tried about douzen but now back to oxygen. Living things cant survive without it :P06:05
DaSkreechmason: If you don't enjoy it then switch it. No reason to care aboutothers06:05
masonI knkow06:05
masonI was just wondering because I was thinking that it's a pretty nice default theme xD06:05
masonAre there any KDE 4.1 System Monitors that don't need the stuff for the temperature?06:06
=== rajesh is now known as Guest96847
DaSkreechDunno. Not really much of a monitor then is it ?06:08
masonDon't they monitor ram usage and stuff?06:09
rio_hey mason what was the first windows app you missed on ubuntu ?06:12
masonYou mean, personalwise?06:12

masonSo it's kind of hard xD06:13
rio_I missed Media Player Classic but now I started usin VLC06:13
masonDoes kubuntu come with any media player like that?06:13
masonThat's GOOD?06:13
rio_it has something Dragon06:14

rio_you should try in settings06:19
rio_and check if windows is in the list06:19
Guest96847yes. i have opened the grub menu list for editing.06:19
Guest96847It has windows. My grub list says unlisted os or something like that.06:19
masonHooray for clashing colors!06:20
masonI don't have the green background06:20

powertool08Guest96847: What's your question?06:23
masonwhat's the apt-get command to get the big font pack?06:24
masonOr something like that06:24
Guest96847 I updated my kubuntu and then the xp partition is not opening though the grub menu says other os as one of the options.06:24
powertool08Guest96847: Sounds like you need to edit your menu.lst file found in /etc/grub I think06:25
Guest96847i have already opened that and it has an entry for windows xp06:25
powertool08Guest96847: What does the entry look like?06:25
Guest96847it says 'non linux os on /dev/sda106:26
powertool08Guest96847: paste the entire section here06:26
ubottupastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (be sure to give the URL of your paste - see also the #kubuntu channel topic)06:26
Guest96847and then title windows xp professional06:27
masonI want my new computer :'(06:27
Guest96847 I have pasted the entry at http://paste.ubuntu.com/103785/06:28
powertool08Guest96847: Ok, that looks good. So its not listed in grub on startup?06:30
pidusthere used to a services option in system settings where one could see all the services on the machine (such as apache and mysql) start/stop them and set the defaults...i am unable to find anything similar in 8.10...does anybody know anything about it?06:30
Guest96847do I need to paste the entire entry for the grub menu list?06:33
powertool08pidus: Its under K menu -> system settings -> advanced tab -> system services for me but I'm on Hardy06:33
powertool08Guest96847: no06:33
powertool08Guest96847: The problem is that you can't boot into windows correct?06:33
Guest96847yes. I can use the windows partition though. I can view, copy paste etc.06:34
piduspowertool08, i remember having it on 8.04 but have they removed it from 8.10 :-(06:34
powertool08pidus: there's always the rc.d files :)06:34
masonWhat's the apt-get for getting the big font package?06:35
powertool08mason: sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts maybe?06:37
masonthank you06:38
powertool08Guest96847: I'm not sure why it wouldn't boot if the menu.lst file is correct. Try asking in #ubuntu, its more active than this channel06:40
piduspowertool08, doing it the 'rc.d' way is complicated..06:48
powertool08pidus: haha, ya. I wasn't serious, but it is an alternative06:49
pidusi thought 8.10 > 8.04 and things would've been easier06:50
powertool08pidus: There's also a command similar to sysctl or something that has a text graphics version of what you're looking for06:50
piduspowertool08: are services (such as apache) part of kernel parameters when they start before the login screen?...i don't think so06:53
powertool08pidus: You can start them before the login screen if you want but not mandatory06:53

Zeelothi guys I need a lot of help please, I have a 2TB raid set and it used to have a bunch of partitions and an ntfs drive for my data (about 1.5TB), but I expanded the ntfs partition with I think GParted and now I cant access it (it shows as 47GB and the rest unpartitioned but I deleted the older partitions and expanded the NTFS partition to take the whole drive)08:35
ZeelotI have all my data on this 1.5 TB partition and I just wanted to expand it to use all 2TB, after I expanded it I could access it but then I rebooted and now I cannot anymore08:36
Zeelotplease any help or direction would be _very_ appreciated08:36
=== fredl is now known as grma
MamarokZeelot: well, if it's set as a Raid system, you can not just repartition08:39
Zeelothardware raid?08:39
Mamarokespecially if it is a hardware raid08:40
Zeelotargh what do I do08:40
ZeelotI used gparted to delete the other partitions and expand the ntfs one08:40
Mamarokhm, no idea, you probably nuked the system08:40
MamarokZeelot: in a raid system you have two physical disks, where one is used as a backup for the first, so if one disk fails, the other is available08:41
Zeelotwhy is that? the partitioner in the installer does everything fine, is it just moving partitions and resizing?08:41
Zeelotit's raid 508:41
Mamarokhm, that's the principle of a Raid system, you should have read some doc before08:42
ZeelotI don't see why it wouldnt work the same way >_>08:43
MamarokI'm not a Raid specialist but that doesn't sound a good idea to reparition a hardware raid08:43
Zeelotraid drives cannot have partitions moved?08:43
MamarokZeelot: as I said, I don't know, did you try to read some doc about raid systems?08:44
Mamaroklet's see if the bot has an idea:08:44
ubotturaid is Tips and tricks for RAID and LVM can be found on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID wto and http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO - For software RAID, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto08:44
Mamarokhm, seems to be about software raid aka fake raid08:45
MamarokZeelot: try to google your raid system with keywords raid, partition08:46
Mamarokso, buying a 2 TB raid system means you have 1 TB for data available usually08:46
ZeelotI am taking a look at the drive with recovery software08:47
Mamarokyou should read some doc first, you might make things worse!08:47
Zeelotno it's raid 5, 4x750GB drives08:47
MamarokZeelot: same problem08:47
Zeelotso 1 drive is for parity08:47
Alan_LockwoodIs it possible to install network-manager from the Live-CD (Intrepid) ?08:48
MamarokZeelot: if you wrote your parition table the data is most likely gone08:48
MamarokAlan_Lockwood: doesn't it install by default?08:48
Zeelotwell the data is there until it's overwritten08:48
Alan_Lockwoodi upgraded it, and it dosnt work08:49
ZeelotI see it, the partition table is just broken08:49
Alan_Lockwoodits a bug08:49
Alan_LockwoodI need the old version back08:49
MamarokAlan_Lockwood: hm, so you have to be patient, reinstalling it form the CD will not resolve the bug08:49
Alan_LockwoodWhy not? The Cd version worked great08:49
MamarokAlan_Lockwood: downgrading is not so easy, you have to remove the current version and load the CD version from the disc, then install the package with dpkg -i08:50
Alan_Lockwoodi removed the actual version (No conection right now in the laptop)08:51
Alan_Lockwoodim hopping the CD save me from reinstaling.08:51
Alan_LockwoodWait a minute.08:52
MamarokAlan_Lockwood: search the CD and locate the package, then copy it to the laptop and install with dpkg -i08:52
Alan_LockwoodIs it easy to make a specific program DO NOT upgrade from usual upgrads?08:52
rio_how do I fix this ?08:52
rio_W: GPG error: http://wine.budgetdedicated.com intrepid Release: The following signatures08:52
MamarokAlan_Lockwood: never did, but you can add a lock to a particular file or just manually choose the packages in Adept (works fine with synaptic)08:53

rio_no I don't have wine installed I  removed it yesterday08:55
Alan_LockwoodI dont see any program pkg in the CD08:55
Mamarokrio_: you can just ignore this message and chosoe to install08:55
Alan_Lockwoodi guess they are all in a heavy few08:55
Mamarokbut be aware that unsigned packages might be dangerous08:56
rio_E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (13 Permission denied)08:56

rio_this is with sudo08:57
Mamarokrio_: are you sure you want to install these packages?08:57
rio_no I'd rather wanna remove it08:58
rio_I was about install Gnome environment08:58
rio_untill KDE probs get fixed08:58
Mamarokrio_: then you should remove this package source first08:59
rio_I'm not sure if I properly deinstalled the wine yesterday08:59
Mamarokrio_: what kde problems?09:01
rio_bad gfx09:02
pteagueaptitude purge wine ; rm -fdr ~/.wine09:02
rio_drop down menys09:02
rio_and right click menus09:02
Mamarok? works fine here...09:02
Mamarokwhat version of KDE are you talking about?09:03
rio_I m not sure bout version of KDE09:03
rio_is there anything I ca do to check version09:03
rio_I installed Kubuntu few days back09:03
Mamarokin any app, go to the Help menu and choose about KDE...09:03
Mamarokrio_: which version of Kubuntu?09:04
Mamarokand what do you mean by "bad gfx"?09:04
rio_alfa shows up09:04
rio_checked gfx09:04
Mamarokok, that's KDE 4, you must upgrade to 4.1.3 then09:04
rio_then texture fills09:05
Mamarokrio_: I don't understand you, what is gfx?09:05
Mamarokwhat graphic card do you have?09:05
rio_intel onboard09:05
Mamarokrio_: did you upgrade to 4.1.3?09:05
rio_no I havent09:05
Mamarokintel onboard works fine AFAIK09:05
Mamarokdo so then, befeore just removing things09:06
rio_I actully started Gnome instller can I stop it ?09:06
Mamarokit's likely to be fixed in 4.1.309:06
Mamarokhm, gnome installer? you are not removing KDE when installing Gnome, do you know that?09:07
Mamarokto install Gnome on an existing set, one just installs ubuntu.desktop09:07
rio_any way to stop it though ?09:07
Mamarokrio_: could you be a bit more specific on how you did start a Gnome installer?09:08
rio_install ubuntu desktop in terminal09:08
rio_>> sudo aptitude install ubuntu-desktop09:08
Mamarokno problem, you can remove it once it's installed09:08
Mamarokbut don't stop a running pckage install09:09
rio_thanks a lot09:09
Mamarokrio_: instead of installoing and removing, you should read a little about different versions, see www.kubuntu.org09:09
rio_Well I intent to use KDE therefore I installed Kubuntu09:10
Mamarokrio_: it's always a good idea to read release notes before installing09:11
rio_but since version 3 of KDE has bit probs I I wanted to use Gnome09:11
Mamarokand checking for updates once a version is installed09:11
Mamarokrio_: KDE 3.5? Problems?09:12
Mamarokrio_: be more specific, just installing another desktop environnement will not help solve problems09:12
rio_hold on konqueror says kde version is 4.1.309:13
Mamarokproblems with graphic cards are not necessarily solved in an other desktop env., as it depends on drivers and X org, which are the same in Gnome btw.09:14
rio_and Konversation says its 3.5.1009:14
Mamarokrio_: Konversation is a kde 3 program, not yet ported to kde 409:14
Mamarokhi jono :)09:23
jonohey Mamarok09:23
shbanyone know how to beat the broken bluetooth stack in kde4?09:29
Zeelothey im back09:30
ZeelotI fixed my partition data and see my files (on the partitioning tool) but windows still sees it as RAW (not ntfs) any way to force that back to ntfs?09:31
cllaudyuwhat is plasma desktop for...09:32
MamarokZeelot: can you access it from Linux?09:32
cllaudyuwhat it its utility?09:33
Mamarokcllaudyu: it's the default in KDE 409:33
ZeelotMamarok no because it tells me to go to windows and do a chkdsk /f on it to fix errors (which I cant do until windows sees it as ntfs)09:33
Mamarokcllaudyu: runs the desktop environnement and the widgets09:33
cllaudyuaha thanks...09:33
MamarokZeelot: do you have data on it you want to recover?09:34
Zeelotyea lots of it =/09:34
cllaudyubut when i use a usb cable why isn't it recognized...09:34
cllaudyui wanted to transfer some photos from my camera...09:35
RurouniJonesBefore you do anything else, if the data is that important I would try and mirror the drive09:35
RurouniJonesor make a copy somehow09:35
MamarokZeelot: wild guess, the fs type is set wrong in the partition table, but I'm not good enough on that one, sry09:35
ZeelotRurouniJones not possible I dont have that much space anywhere else =(09:35
Mamarokcllaudyu: that's not plasma handling mounting cameras, you have a widget on the lower left screen09:36
cllaudyuaha thanks again09:36
cllaudyuif i close plasma what will go wrong?09:36
RurouniJonesI would say go and buy an HDD if the data is critical, but I can understand your situation. Just be veeeery careful about how you try and fix it09:36
ZeelotRurouniJones I know it's risky but I want to try and fix the partition table09:36
Mamarokcllaudyu: how that, close plasma?09:36
cllaudyui mean that desktop09:36
cllaudyuin kde409:37
Zeelotit isn't critical just a LOT of things I've gathered over the past09:37
Mamarokyou can't "close" plasma, you can only close KDE4, and it will just log you out09:37
cllaudyuit has a close button09:37
cllaudyui'm not understood09:37
Mamarokcllaudyu: don't close it unless you want to quit the deskto09:37
Mamarokcllaudyu: you want to transfer photos you said...09:37
ZeelotRurouniJones do you know what I should do to try and fix it?09:38
cllaudyuyes and i wanted to understand plasma as well09:38
Mamarokcllaudyu: on the lower left of your screen, there's a widget that looks like a computer, it says "last plugged in device" when you hover over it with the mouse09:38
cllaudyuooh thank u09:39
cllaudyui'l try it know09:39
Mamarokif your camera is connected and on, it should be seen once you click on that widget, then you can open it with Dolphin09:39
RurouniJonesZeelot: I don't know enough about this to give any useful advice09:39
cllaudyuand my webcam... my webcam isn't found on kde09:40
Zeelotany direction as to who might be able to help me? a channel for this kind of stuff?09:40
cllaudyui have a installation cd only for windows09:40
cllaudyufor my webcam09:40
MamarokZeelot: partitioning is tough, maybe there will be someone later here or try in #ubuntu09:41
cllaudyuhow can i make it to be recognized by kubuntu09:41
ZeelotMamarok thanks09:41
Mamarokcllaudyu: that installation disc will not help, what make is your camera?09:41
wanghi all09:41
knioletZeelot: you may have to use some data recovery service or something like that... i hate when disks get messed up and you lose you data, thats happened to me more than once :-/09:41
cllaudyuthe camera is armedia tipe KSISII09:42
Mamarokcllaudyu: what is your native language?09:42
Mamarokcllaudyu: because I only found romanian help when I googeld for your camera :)09:43
Mamarokcllaudyu: wait, I give you the link :)09:43
cllaudyuit's maybe used only in romania09:43
Mamarokcllaudyu: not necessarily, it's sometimes only a name that's different09:44
Zeelotugh I hate how I can browse all my files with the recovery tool but cant fix the partition enough to actively browse my drive09:44
Mamarokcllaudyu: see here: http://forum.softpedia.com/index.php?showtopic=40738309:44
MamarokZeelot: in that recovery tool, there should be an option to set the FS type I guess09:44
comeditcan't find out why my sent mail from imap accounts keeps being displayed in my local folders and not in sent folders per imap account  in Kontact09:45
cllaudyui saw it09:45
ZeelotMamarok I did and linux sees it fine as NTFS, the tool sees it as NTFS...but windows doesnt and that's the only thing I need09:45
Mamarokcomedit: because you did send it from Kmail locally, so that's normal09:46
RurouniJonesWhy not just get your files in linux?09:46
* booleancat thinks it funny that Linux can possibly handle NTFS better than win in this case09:46
* Mamarok is not surprised09:46
cllaudyui have another camera... a genius digital camera with webcam function... maybe that will work on kubuntu?09:46
ZeelotRurouniJones because it's an ntfs drive and I cannot mount it in linux in it's current state09:46
RurouniJonesTried one of those HDD to USB converters?09:47
comeditMamarok: is there a way that it uses the servers sending so i will see it also from remote places what i have sent ?09:47
RurouniJonesor are you talking about software state09:47
Zeelotlinux just keeps saying go to windows and fix it then come back09:47
Mamarokcllaudyu: on Linux you just need the drivers for the camera, did you search for your camera with Google? that's how I cam accross the first one...09:47
cllaudyui searched but did not found any driver09:47
Mamarokcomedit: check your settings for sending then09:47
cllaudyufor armedia i mean09:48
cllaudyui gues i will find for genius09:48
Mamarokcllaudyu: unfortunately not all devices have free drivers09:48
cllaudyui know that...09:48
cllaudyuthen i will not be able to use my webcam09:48
comeditMamarok: i did but i got stuck i will check the settings once more09:48
Mamarokcomedit: if you use sendmail for sending it's local, choose smtp to use your server09:49
cllaudyuok... thanks for the info...09:49

ActionParsnipocs: not everyone needs file sharing, hence optional13:19
Dr_willis_xp-killer,  you would need to get your 3d video card drivers going.. and then isntall  all the needed bits for compiz.13:20

Dr_willis_ - /var/cache/apt  i think13:20

Dr_willis_ati and nvidia both will most likely not work - without their propitary drivers for compiz.13:22

ActionParsnipxp-killer: and slipped by your transport layer in tcp13:32
xp-killeri dont understand your language13:33
ActionParsnipxp-killer: you download stuff from the web13:34
ActionParsnipit may not be 100% correct13:34
xp-killeri know13:34
ActionParsnipas the data passes it may encounter noise and faulty network sockets13:34
ActionParsnipthis can damage the data13:34
ActionParsnipwhen you recieve each packet the parity is checked13:34
xp-killerok now i understand lol13:34
ActionParsnipbut this is not enough especially something as critical as an operating system13:35
ActionParsnipso there is an MD5 sum of the iso on the same place you download from13:35
ActionParsnipyou compare the sum to the sum you calculate from your downloaded data, if they match then the data you have downloaded is correct13:36
ActionParsnipyou can also have burning jitters and errors which can be reduced by burning as slowly as possible13:36
ActionParsnipthe cd also has a tool to check it again to make sure the data is spot on13:36
ActionParsnipthis can reduce issues with the installation process as well as the installed system itself13:36
ActionParsnipyou get folks wo blindly burn and install systems with unchecked media then are suprised when it doesnt work and they say "ubuntu sucks"13:37
ActionParsnipthne i tell them to check stuff and its all bad so i say "they suck"13:38
ActionParsnipif you can md5 check, do so13:39

ubottuHi! Welcome to #kubuntu!18:35
legodude_konq crashes shortly after opening "konqueror: Fatal IO error: client killed", any suggestions?18:42
legodude_google really didn't help all that much18:43
MikeHEvening all18:50
MikeHI tried KDE 4 on Intrepid a few weeks back, and it seemed rather buggy and slow18:51
MikeHIs this a known issue, or have a done something wrong/missed something somewhere?18:51
MikeHOr is this usual, and it's just not finished yet18:51
legodude_4.2 is much nicer18:51
Tm_TMikeH: mmmmm, nVidia?18:51
legodude_so I would say it is usual and not finished yet18:52
[GRS]uh.. its not slow... certainly not for me =/ been using it on all my machines [kubuntu, arch and opensuse], whats your specs?18:52
Tm_Tlegodude_: nah18:52
legodude_4.1 certainly is buggy18:52
Tm_Twasn't for me though18:52
[GRS]yeah obviously :P but its not slow for me18:53
MikeHTm_T: ATI, drivers are installed, as compiz under  gnome works perfectly.18:54
Tm_TMikeH: doesn't matter18:54
Tm_TMikeH: it's known that KDE4 uses stuff that manufacturers never really tested properly18:54
MikeH[GRS]: Intel Q6600 (quad) @ 3.3GHz, 4GB Ram, ATI 485018:55
MikeHTm_T: So, what does that mean for my problems?18:55
legodude_MikeH: if you are willing to live on the edge, try 4.2 beta18:55
legodude_it is a great improvement18:55
MikeHMy brand new, second to top range graphics card is insufficient to display a desktop? :P18:55
Tm_TMikeH: well, it could be fixed with newer versions of KDE and eventually also with newer drivers18:55
Tm_TMikeH: nah, old intels are doing fine18:56
MikeHSo, is 4.2 not default with Intrepid, if not, is there a repo that'll handle it?18:56
legodude_look at the topic18:56
Tm_TMikeH: see topic18:56
Tm_TMikeH: some problematic stuff is from 90's mostly, but yeah, irrelevant technicalities18:57
