Dr_willisI never have figured out how you make the cd image boot and be able to checksum itself.. It you put a checksum file on the cd..  How did the checksum get calculated without that file being there in the first place00:20
ActionParsnipmrdigital: if its bad you gotta redownload00:20

mrdigital24ea1163ea6c9f5dae77de8c49ee7c03 is that the right checksum00:20

ActionParsnipphilsf: i dont use it myself, good decription though, maybe someone else can help00:32
m_tadeuis it possi ble to get the external ip from my router?00:32
ActionParsnipphilsf: have you tried uninstalling with --purge and also removing all config for kontact (if this will not destroy data)00:33

m_tadeuActionParsnip: thanks00:40
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: np bro, its not graceful but it works ;)00:41
m_tadeuActionParsnip: I was hopping for a linux command :) but....it does the job00:41
stodgeI can't get sound to work under 8.04 - the correct driver (snd-usb-caiaq) is loaded, but it's not being used. If I select ALSA in system configuration, the sound server crashes. Selecting OSS does nothing. Any ideas?00:42
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: theres the full script which works to remove the extra gumf from the file00:42
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: the linux command will show the ip of the local interfaces00:42
m_tadeuActionParsnip: yup....I was hopping for an unknown harcore linux command, hehe00:44
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: you can use that stuff in the page and write it to a script, then run the script whenever you want to know the ip00:45
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: you could run the script but add a line to cat the file, then rm the file so it's like it never existed00:45
m_tadeuyes :) thanks00:47
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: will teach you some scripting shizz00:48
stodgeWhy is sound so hard to get working under linux and kde00:49
m_tadeuActionParsnip: I never deal very well with bash :P00:50
FisherPricebash is cool... much better than doss00:50
m_tadeuFisherPrice: too used to non-scripting languages, I guess00:51
ActionParsnipdos is pathetic in comparison00:51
FisherPriceI've dabbled in most00:51
ActionParsnipif you use windows and want power, install powershell00:51
ActionParsnippowershell is badass00:51
FisherPriceyeah the only way to get any power in windows dos is by 3rd party add-ons00:52
ActionParsnipwe use powershellat work to ask all our sql servers if their backups passed and rerun whatever hasnt passed00:52
faileaser... windows dos?00:53
ActionParsnipits powershell00:54
m_tadeustodge: what are you finding hard?00:54
ActionParsnippowershell > dos00:54
BluesKajmsdos maybe00:54
faileasFisherPrice: only cause linux is (in one aspect) designed around a terminal...00:54
faileasActionParsnip: i need to learn that at some point00:54
ActionParsnipfaileas: you wont regret it00:54
stodgem_tadeu: trying to get sound working on 8.04.00:54
faileasActionParsnip: i just need to find the time, oh, and to feel like using my windows box ;p00:55
ActionParsnipfaileas: theres a #powershell n freenode :)00:55
FisherPricefaileas: yes, from the ground up it's sorta based around the terminal as a gateway to the kernal00:55
FisherPricei guess00:55
faileasActionParsnip: i still need to use windows ;p00:55
ActionParsnipfaileas: http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/powershell00:56
ActionParsnipfaileas: no need for windows :)00:56
faileas.... wha?00:56
m_tadeustodge: maybe you should try the #alsa for better info00:56
stodgemaybe I should00:56
ActionParsnipfaileas: no foolin00:56
faileasActionParsnip: lol. would it work with yakuake? ;p00:57
m_tadeuwhat's all about powershell?00:58
cuzntmy turtle has a powershell00:58
ActionParsnipfaileas: cant see why not, yakuake is the balls00:58
faileasm_tadeu: oh the windows version is a non retarded CLI with an awesome scripting language. apparently someone at ms decided to try catch up ;p00:58
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: its an awesome interface you can use to access and manipulate systems and remote systems too00:59
m_tadeugraphical or console?00:59
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: it can do anything on a system you can do locally, you can write a script to sequentially run through a text file of systems and run a certain command00:59
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: all console based01:00
m_tadeuso it's bash+ssh :D01:00
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: its excellent when you have several hundred thosand servers01:00
faileasActionParsnip: ;). can't live without it. actually its one reason why i prefer KDE over gnome01:00
ActionParsnipfaileas: i just luse cli loads and use kde so yakuake is a natural option01:00
ActionParsnipfaileas: if i used gnome id be all about tilda01:00
m_tadeuinstalling to check it out01:01
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: pretty much, we use it to check uptimes and read event viewer for issues matching a certain filter for a date range01:02
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: we also hit redgate with it to magage sql backups01:02
m_tadeubut you only need that on windows machines....? I mean...under linux it makes no advantage, right?01:03
stodge#alsa is dead01:03
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: it interfaces to windows for sure, not sure for linux servers01:04
m_tadeustodge: the guys might be asleep...or out for friday night fever :) leave the question...it'll probably be answerd latter01:04
ActionParsnipm_tadeu: you could easily script something similar without having to install powershell on the system running the script01:05
m_tadeustodge: have you googled for your sound card and ubuntu?01:05
ActionParsnipstodge: lspci will identify it01:06
stodgeIt's detected according to aplay -l01:06
stodgeand asoundconf list01:06

mefisto__Haza: you trying to do video screen capture, right?02:22
HazaIndeed mate. I use Isyanbul02:23
SkEmOanyone has any idea?02:23
mefisto__Haza: you might want to try xvidcap. it can create swf or flv directly, so no need to convert anything02:23
Dr_willisSkEmO,  i would think its just a configurationissue then on theinstalled system02:24
Hazamefisto__: Its funny you say that... I already installed it a while back02:24
HazaI installed a couple of screen capturing software packages02:24
mefisto__me too02:24
* Haza loads it up to remind himself02:24
mefisto__istanbul is nice and easy, but xvidcap is more flexible02:25
HazaAhhh i remember this one. I can't remember why i decided not to use it...02:25
HazaGonna give it a test02:25
Hazaoh wait!02:25
HazaI remember02:25
Hazamefisto__: When i click the record button the application bombs out on me :)02:25
Hazareasons... unknown :)02:25
Hazamefisto__: Any thoughts?02:26
HazaI could even make you a video of what happens using Instanbul :D02:26
SkEmODr_willis: and how can i change it?02:27
mefisto__same problem here too Haza02:27
HighHoHaza: try lanching from konsole and see what it outputs when it crashs02:27
HazaHighHo: Okay mate. I'll give thata shot02:27
Hazamefisto__: You having the same problem?02:27
szrhawaiiDr_willis can you help me with a problem not sure if you ran across this yet02:30
szrhawaiiI downloaded some packages then when i restart my computer it says panel error and runs my stuff in gnome setting instead of kde02:30
HazaHighHo: "Segmentation fault"  <--- error message02:31

Dr_willisall i do for wireless on my system is install the b43-fwcutter package and then use the icons in the panel.. enter ssid/password and away i go02:33
mefisto__Haza: do you need audio? if I disable audio capture it works02:34
HighHoHaza: are you using kde4 or kde3?02:34
andypls1m_tadeu: are u there?02:34
HazaHighHo: umm, might seem like a silly question.. but i cannot remember02:35
HazaHow do i find out? :)02:35
HazaI installed this system 6+ months ago at least02:35
m_tadeuandypls1: i'm here02:36
andypls1m_tadeu: i'll tell you in a minute ok02:36
HighHoHaza: its probably kde3, but you can check by opening a kde application, clicking help and then "about kde"02:36
HazaHighHo: 3.5.1002:37
Hazamefisto__: How did you disable sound?02:37
mefisto__Haza: right-click the button on the left to get to preferences02:38
HazaI did that aye02:38
mefisto__Haza: go to multi-frame tab and switch "enable audio" off02:38
mefisto__Haza: also make sure the file you're creating is being saved somewhere in your home dir or desktop (where you have write permission)02:39
mefisto__Haza: and give the file a swf extension if you want swf02:40
Hazamefisto__: Right. Just testing02:40
SkEmOim doing the b43-fwcutter thing02:41
SkEmOwhat after?02:41
Hazamefisto__: Can you play the vidio directly afte you hit the stop button?02:42
mefisto__Haza: yes, it plays it in mplayer02:42
mefisto__not working for you?02:43
HazaMy output test.* files are okb's big =/02:43
HazaI could just do what ive been doing so far of course... tell people to either install linix or download VLC to play my video's02:44

r2b2a friend of mine gave me pixelview tv tuner and i plug it in the pci slot03:04
r2b2this is my first time to such thing03:04
Dr_willisI would google to see if that thing even has any linux support03:05
Dr_willisif it does - then there are tv tuner programs to try with it.03:05
SkEmODr_willis:  i better not, i opened the network settings on my system settings and  under network interfaces it only appears the la, but not the wireless03:05
Dr_willisxawtv perhaps is one/03:05
Dr_willisSkEmO,  you mean 'lo' ?03:05
SkEmOlan, sorry03:05
HighHocyberponix: try running in konsole "sudo lshw -C network"03:05
r2b2Dr_willis : ok - if it is supported, no drivers required?03:05
andypls1it's huge...03:06
SkEmOit says interface Eth003:06
Dr_willisr2b2,  should work..  but some tuners can be tricky. :)   if you are lucky03:06
r2b2Dr_willis , i will try xawtv -it would be amazing if the tuner works out of the box !03:06
Dr_willisr2b2,  mine basicially did.. but i reserached it first03:07
Dr_willisI used MythTV for a long time03:07

The_Ztweakedeh: why not kill the TTY they're on? It will respawn..03:21
m_tadeuI think you could give 8.10 a try ;)03:21
cyberponixEverything almost in the other computer is nvida03:22

tweakedehThe_Z: I'm new to Linux and not sure what TTY is.03:23
m_tadeuok....see ya soon03:23
m_tadeuhow can I spy tcp/ip communications?03:23
The_Ztweak.. each user that logs on has a tty, or terminal... you can do a "who" to see who is online, and by what  means they are logged in...03:24
HighHocyberponix: did the issue occur after a fresh install03:24
The_Ztweak: you can also use "finger", etc... check the man pages for those, btu it is easier to just try in a shell/terminal yourself.03:24
tweakedehThe_Z:...he made a new user.. nice03:24
cyberponixyes with vista it worked fine...03:25
tweaki don't want to use finger03:25
The_Ztweak: you also have userdel, or deluser if someone has made a user.. but why did they have permissions to do so?03:25
The_Ztweak: I have he feeling you aren't telling everything... :)03:26
tweakedehI Have a hidden user on my computer, How do I see what it's doing?!03:26
HighHocyberponix: Im not sure why the forcedeth driver is not included in 7.10, but i belive that this is probably the issue. If you can it would be best to upgrade to intrepid or hardy03:27
The_Ztweak: on linux, there isn't any such thing as a "hidden user"..03:27
The_Ztweak: you can see all of them.03:27
The_Ztweak: when you do a "who -u" do you see the user?03:27
* SkEmO sighs03:27
cyberponixIf I can find forcedeth and get it to the other comp what will it do?>03:28
SkEmODr_willis:  nope, the wireless still doesent work03:28
The_Ztweak: you can also look at files where someone logging in is noticed, like "tail -f /var/log/auth.log"03:29
HighHocyberponix: Its the driver that most nvidia network cards use, the module needs to be loaded before the card will work03:29
The_Ztweak: but why not just delete the accounts, reduce their priveleges, or, or, ... How on earth are you just starting on/in linux and have unwanted guests on your server? How did they get in in the first place??03:30

darkguytry vfat, fat or msdos04:49
alberto_general shortcuts arent working in kde 4.1. where do i modify them?04:49
pkodondarkguy: Will that recognize the fat32 partition?04:50
darkguypkodon: yeah, as far as I know, for fat32 partitions you should use vfat04:50
darkguyas there's no thing as fat32 if I recall correctly04:50

FirefisheI'm using 8.10 & kde 4.2 b2. Having a problem with my dvd drive.  I put a dvd in, try to open it with dolphin, and now I don't have any access whatsoever to the dvd drive from any application.06:59
FirefisheCan't eject it, can't mount it, can't unmount it06:59

=== Mamarok_ is now known as Mamarok
FirefisheDr_willis:  hi gain, dr. :)  Well, to get around this--and I'm only guessing this is why it's working here--I set my bios to compatible mode (I've had problems with the dvd drive before due to this), rebooted, and in k3b, set it to ignore read errors.  It's nicely copying to an .iso file as I type this.  Hopefully, with no problems.07:32
Dr_williscompatible mode07:32
Dr_willis Whats that?07:32
FirefisheEnhanced vs Compatible07:33
Dr_williscant say that ive ever heard of those modes befor for optical  media/devices.07:33
Dr_willisonly for Parrellel Ports.. AGES ago. :)07:33
FirefisheThis has to do with some of the newer hard drives.  And perhaps that's true for the dvd drive directly, but the dvd still has to be copied to and read by the hd.  Anyway, it's working.07:34
Firefisheenhanced sata or pata or something like that.07:34
FirefisheI don't really know specifically07:34
FirefisheThe weird part is, I tried to copy it once, and I had to cancel it.  I then--from within the k3b file browser dialog--selected the drive, and it actually read it.  Then I tried the copy command again, and now it's working.  I'm wondering what's telling what that something is mounted or there or what.07:35
FirefisheOr what would cause the drive to just up and not work...it's not jammed.07:36
FirefisheQuite frankly, I"m not overly impressed with the dvd burner in this thing.  I'd like to swap it out for another, but laptops are so specific as to hardware.  It's also lightscribe, but that's not a major thing, I'd rather have something accurate and fast.07:37

Firefisheelwood...konqueror is it's own animal.  Flash and Java behave differently with it, so I'd start looking over the forums and all the instructions and options for koqueror if you want it to be your primary browser.  I prefer firefox.07:54

Dr_willishard to tell since you cant really see the logs/stuff after it crashes...09:38
Dr_willishas it always been unstable? or a recent thing?09:38

GoanDr_willis, I would think that too.09:43
techbwhi, is there a way for me to log onto another computer kde desktop via ssh.09:43
Dr_willistechbw,  depends on what you want to do.. You could ssh -X to the remote box and run apps and they would appear 'locally'09:44
Dr_willisif you wanted to controll the existing kde desktop ont he remote box. thats another thing entirely. :)09:44
techbwno I would like kde desktop to load, ssh -X works for individual apps09:44
Dr_willisYou can  make all the apps show up locally.. :) start a X session with just a terminal , ssh -X over.. and run 'startkde'09:45
Dr_willisbut that may make for a sluggish desktop09:45
Dr_willisalso  if you dont have to use ssh. theres the xdmcp feature of X. for a remote desktop thats local.09:45
techbwtried that, did not work, I have enabled X tunneling in ssh server on remote pc, but remote computer seems to not respond.  when I enter the startkde command09:46
Dr_willisyou dont want anyting going in X otehr then a simple terminal window. no other window managers at all.  when you do that trick09:47
techbwso I must be in a terminal window not an x when I start this?09:48
Dr_willis I was thinking i saw gdm/kdm somehow had a 'remote X session' or 'secure ssh X session' menu  item once.. but im not sure what put them there.09:48
techbwctrl+alt+f2 for example09:48
Dr_willisstart X with JUST a xterm. No window manager, or anythying09:48
Dr_willisNot a CONSOLE09:48
techbwcan a window manager be active on another screen?09:48
Dr_willisyou can have several X sessions going at the same time.. alt-ctrl-f7 and one on alt-ctrl-f8 and  so forth. yes. you an have one on the other 'screen'09:49
Dr_willisLast i did this was with kde 3.5 ages ago..09:49
Dr_willisAGES and AGES ago  :)09:49
techbwwhen I do go to ctrl+alt+f2 and ssh into the machine and start kde there are alot of failure notices, which go up too fast and can't scroll to see what it is saying09:51
Dr_willisYou DONT startkde from a console09:51
Dr_willis you must start it from a X session09:51
techbwhow do I open an X session without starting to load kde locally?09:51
Dr_willisthats the trick :)09:52
techbwif I press ctrl+alt+f8 then it opens a local kde session09:52
Dr_willis I was thinking i saw gdm/kdm somehow had a 'remote X session' or 'secure ssh X session' menu  item once.. but im not sure what put them there.09:52
techbwi will go through adept and check the repos, maybe there is something in there09:53
Dr_willislook at the kdm login/session items..  or dont use kdm and make a simple .xinitrc that has one line.. 'xterm'09:53
Dr_willisthen use startx from the console after you close out X and stop kdm09:53
yao_ziyuani just googled and found 3 approaches to set fonts for gtk+ programs running in kde: (1) use gtk-qt-engine to "set a font or use my current kde font for gtk+ programs"; (2) edit ~/.gtkrc-2.0; (3) run gnome-settings-daemon at kde startup.  approach #1 actually is equivalent to #2 because gtk-qt-engine writes to ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde4, and if i copy this to ~/.gtkrc-2.0, it still doesn't work; so approaches #1 and #2 don't work. only #3 works for me.09:53

kaHi Dr_willis10:50
lillyzhey I have a problem on ubuntu 8.10 amd64 on install it gets to after copy files then it updates time from server and just quits and ubiquity seems to be closing unexpectedly just right after that. Can someone give me any ideas on how to fix. (md5sum on cd is fine, burnt twice now low speed, cd check said no errors i have a 64bit cpu)10:50
kaI have no idea, But then I am new to Ubuntu...10:51
Dr_willisi tend to use the alterntive isntaller..  so not sure. either10:55
kaMaybe you 'll have som more luck at teh #ubuntu channel. But It is saturady, and contrary to whjat people belive, Linux users do something else that use their PCs in the weekends...10:58
lillyzhmm time to try that then... it worked before but i put a new pc together with fairly newish parts but seems it just didn't like me :(10:58
lillyzlol yeah i already asked in #ubuntu no response at all10:58
Dr_willisIt can be hard to trouble shoot.10:59
Dr_willissince it works for most everyone else..10:59

Guest179Hi everyone,  what's the keyboard shortcut for switching between tabs in Konqueror (like Ctrl-PgUp and Ctrl PgDn in Firefox)?11:09
=== blackwaltz is now known as dwidmann
Guest179ka: Thanks!  That shifts to the next tab.  What about shifting to the previous tab?11:15
Dr_willisadd a shift?11:15
Dr_willisif you have enough fingers. :)11:15
Guest179Nope.  Doesn't work11:15
kahm I dont know..11:16

ian_morning - has anyone had any problems with kwin since the 4.2 RC update?11:21
Dr_willisKonwueror menu items I imagine some where? Im not in kde aright now.11:21

Guest179Dr_willis: OK got it.  Settings->Configure Shortcuts.  The shortcuts are Ctrl+./Ctrl+,  Thanks everyone!11:22
ian_are you sure your selecting kde4 from the login screen?11:22
tictrician_: yes11:22
tictricI cannot log in only as one specific user: Me11:23
ian_tictric: what version of kde4 are you running? on what system?11:23
tictricthe other users on this machine can just login like before11:23
Dr_willissounds like some messed up kde setting11:23
ian_tictric: can you log into terminal and check that all of your home dir is owned by you and you've not accidently owned some of it by root11:24
katictric: Hm I oftwen experienced this when my home dir was full...11:24
tictricI even moved my home dir to homedir.bak and created a new empty home to see what happens11:24
tictricno change11:24
tictriconly this one user doesn't get a desktop env on this upgraded intrepid11:25
karename your kde folder as root11:25
tictrician_: I checked all of the abovd11:25
ian_the only time i've seen problems like that are either with a full home dir or wrong permissions11:25
kaKde will regenerat a new folder for you, then you can copy back the things you need11:25
tictricI did chown -R user.user /home/user11:25
tictricka, that's what I thought too. But it made no change11:26
kaCrap... That seems strange11:26
kaHm make a new user and copy your files over11:27

cyberponixis your hdd password protected?16:00

Rainarrowpidusd: and I can't even use the "Open Containing Folder" function in firefox, which still triggers the "Choose the app" dialog16:36
pidusdtreats: go to system settings->network settings and there you should find an option to manually fill in proxy details16:37
dominiquepidusd: file types and default applications are not saved in ~/.kde afaik16:37
dstarkaeferadept: I could let you have mine, but it's got a lot of extra stuff in it....16:37
treatspidusd: it is somewhere else... i changed that but I still recieve an error that my terminal is trying to go through a proxy16:37
Rainarrowdominique: I feel strange too, because I believe Firefox's setting should be in ~/.mozilla16:38
kaeferadeptdstar: That shouldn't be a problem.16:38
Rainarrowdominique: which I didn't touch at all16:38
dominiqueRainarrow: I don't get your problem exactly.16:38

Rainarrowdominique: yes, of course16:39

AdolaHey!  I need help installing something using cmake16:43
pidusddstar: ifconfig does show eth0 but when i try to ifup it says - "ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0"16:44
dstarpidusd: hmm... what does your interfaces file look like?16:45
amehello ... i'd like to have an information: i've kubuntu 8.04 . If i upgrade this to 8.10 , settings (such as Video Card, Monitor....) that i have, remain or them change and I'll have to adjust them after installation?16:45
pidusddstar: how should i find that out?16:46
pidusddstar: i mean which files would contain interface details16:46
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes16:46
dstarpidusd: /etc/network/interfaces16:47
shadeslayerhey i just wanted to know if i am right in thinking that .bin files run only in linux16:47
pidusddstar: it has 2 entries auto lo and iface lo inet loopback16:48
dstarpidusd: okay, that's why ifup isn't working. Are you using networkmanager, I assume?16:48
=== elwghost is now known as elwood
pidusddstar: yup16:49
dstarpidusd: Ugh. NM is yet another example of GNOME thinking that Microsoft's 'we know what you want better than you do' attitude is something to be emulated, rather than scorned...16:50
pidusddstar: :-) so what's the right course to fix it?16:51
dstarpidusd: Good luck debugging it. I switched to wicd after spending several hours tracking down a problem, only to find it was a known bug that the NM developers had no intention of fixing because they _wanted_ it to work that way.16:51
dstarpidusd: Use wicd. Wicd is _nice_.16:51
pidusddstar: but isn't wicd yet another clone of NM?16:52
=== kb is now known as Guest16832
dstarpidusd: It has the same functionality, but from what I can see the developers are sane. When the 'scanning for new networks blocks all other activity for 10-15 seconds' problem was pointed out, they changed it to scan only when it needed new networks.16:53
shadeslayerand BTW has anyone used open SUSE withe KDE desktop16:53
shadeslayer*with the16:54
dstarpidusd: NM scans every two minutes. When someone suggested a configuration item to change that, the response was 'the idea behind NM is zero-configuration, so a configuration option is non-sensical'.16:54
pidusddstar: but getting wicd without a internet on that machine will be :-(16:54
dstarpidusd: Keep in mind that the specific problem in that case was an intel wireless chipset that would _drop the association with the AP_ when scanning.....16:55
kaeferadeptjust curious: what packages are needed to get mp3s working?16:55
dstarpidusd: Is NM running?16:55
pidusddstar: yes, but it says eth0 is disconnected.16:56
shadeslayerhey i just wanted to know if i am right in thinking that .bin files run only in linux16:56
pidusddstar: even though it was working perfectly fine when i tried it using kubuntu 8.04 live cd16:56
dstarpidusd: Hmm. Okay, is eth0 dhcp or static?16:56
pidusddstar: static16:57
dstarpidusd: Okay... oh, wait. ISTR that NM kept forgetting the network settings I'd given it. Does NM still have your network settings?16:58
pidusddstar: yes, i think, because when i add a new wired connection to it, it does stay there but selecting it in the window has no effect17:00
pidusddstar: is there a way to manually add the eth0 interface entry?17:00
dstarpidusd: Hrm. It didn't decide your wired connection should be dhcp?17:01
pidusddstar, no.17:01
dstarpidusd: yeah, you can add it to /etc/network/interfaces17:01
dstarpidusd: and then ifup will work.17:01
dstarpidusd: man interfaces should tell you what you need to know17:01
pidusddstar: cool! thanks, i hope it works17:02
dstarpidusd: no problem17:02
dstarhow often are the official packages for the amd proprietary drivers updated?17:03
KomiaPoikadstar: better use drivers directly from nvidia website17:07
dstarKomiaPoika: Is it really? When I did that, plasma started crashing when I logged in, thus forcing me to use Gnome.17:08

markitI've kubuntu with 4.1-96 in 2 laptops. One works fine, the second one, as soon as I try to logout, instead of presenting me the log screen, makes the screen go crazy (lot of strange character mode symbols). Is it a known issue?17:58
ghostcubexp-killer, this wont be deleted17:59
pidusdNM worked perfectly fine on my machine before kubuntu crashed a couple of hours ago and then NM stopped working...but can you think of why it didn't work perfectly, once again when i installed a fresh copy of kubuntu?17:59
xp-killerghostcube: and for my graphic card?17:59
ghostcubepidusd, hmm have u done all upgrades17:59
ghostcubexp-killer, xorg.conf wont be touched but you can macke a backup of it17:59

ubottufloyd: Hi! Welcome to #kubuntu!21:01
ActionParsnip!aptoncd | Brad77721:01
ubottuBrad777: APTonCD is a tool with a graphical interface which allows you to create one or more CDs or DVDs with all of the packages you've downloaded via apt-get or aptitude, creating a removable repository that you can use on other computers21:01

Brad777Is there a way to get the package without using a package manager? I am using windows xp atm so I can't use aptitude to download anything.21:03
Dr_willisBrad777,  go to the fileserver and download it.. is one way.. but you may need to get other dependencies also.21:04
floydhi markus21:04
ActionParsnipBrad777: you can access the repos via http and download the debs manually21:04
Dr_willisBrad777,  like ActionParsnip  said.. its proberly best to go wired till you can get wireless tested21:04
Brad777I just recently moved and at the moment I have no way of using a wired connection. I had the wireless working for a few minutes then without thinking about it I updated kubuntu and it did something to mess up the drivers I guess because I no longer can detect the wireless network.21:06
ActionParsnipBrad777: try: sudo mv /etc/network/interfaces /etc/network/interfaces_old21:08
ActionParsnipBrad777: then reboot21:08

Adola(Also, I used to beable to get to my otherharddrive through Dolphin.  But, now that's broken..[since the upgrade to 4.2RC1])21:41
Dr_willisits possible the reason you cant eget to it - is that IF windows crashes or otehr wise fails to properly 'unmount' the drive. Linux sees it  as beeing flagged 'dirty' by windows, and refuses to mountit - to keep it safe21:42
Dr_willisboot to windows.  and scan the drive.. properly shut down windows.. do NOT hibernate/suspend.. and see if linux can access it21:43
Brad777ActionParsnip: no I haven't21:43
Dr_willisas for the fstab entry Adola  just add a proper line to the end of that file.21:43
Dr_willisAdola,  the tool 'ntfs-config' might be able to automate it for you. sudo apt-get install ntfs-config, kdesudo ntfs-config21:44

setuidHow do I configure kdm? It's coming up in what looks like 640x480 with a huge black region around it, instead of 1920x120022:44
setuidAnd when I log into KDE, it's stuck at 1024x768, until I go to System Settings and click on Display (changing nothing), then it pops to 1920x120022:44

Brad777you could play around in ur xorg file22:48
Brad777i wouldn't recommend that though22:48
setuidmy xorg.conf is about 7 lines long22:49
Brad777what is ur video card setuid22:49
setuidDefault one... only has "Section InputDevice"22:49
setuid01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Quadro FX 570M (rev a1)22:49
ghostcubesetuid, try nvidia-settings22:49
ghostcubesave the xorg.conf to desktop if u enabled all u want22:49
ghostcubeedit the xorg.conf u have the waythe settings do it22:49
Brad777setuid: do u have nvidia x server settings?22:50
setuidI"m not running the nvidia driver, don't want to do that at the moment22:50
setuidThat's my entire config22:50
Brad777setuid: i was having the problem u are having and i fixed it using the nvidia driver that's the only thing i could figure out22:50
setuidIt's whatever Intrepid put on the system when it installed22:50
setuidSomething tells me that the problem is the Intrepid installer never actually created a working xorg.conf22:51
ghostcubesetuid, install nvidia-glx-180 should work fine for this card22:52
ghostcubethen let nvidia-xconfig set an new xorg.conf22:52
setuidI'm not going to use the nvidia driver right now... so I'm going to use vesafb for the moment22:53
setuidI don't need the full-speed, proprietary driver22:53
setuidSeems like the only way to "fix" the resolution is to go into System Properties -> Display and then exit immediately.22:58
setuidChanges in the "Display" applet aren't persistent22:58
Brad777setuid: that's because the nvidia driver saves changes to the xorg file for u23:03
setuidAnd since I'm not going to use that, I don't care. I highly doubt that a user-level change to the resolution writes to a root-owned, read-only flle.23:04
setuidDefinitely looks like a bug in the systemsettings implementation23:05
=== DS-Busy is now known as DarkSmoke
setuidDoes the same exact thing inside a vmware guest23:06
setuidSo it's not the nvidia driver or lack of that driver23:06
Brad777setuid: just telling you how I fixed it23:08
setuidThat may work for you and the nvidia drivers may correct the discrepancy/bug in KDE, but the bug is consistent across two physically different platforms and drivers, so it is not hardware or driver-specific.23:09

artur__How to really effectively remove a program? I could note that --purge isn't enough.23:27

dominiqueWhat you mean with not enough?23:29
Brad777yertosaurus: 4.1.323:35
artur__dominique: when you see the 'man apt-get' there's a part that tell that to effectively remove you must use --purge, but I tried this to uninstall skype, but when i re-installed it, I didn't have to login. So everything was like before the uninstall. Cause before it i used to be automatically logged without typing password and username. It's a example.23:36
dominiqueartur_: Check your ~/ for files according to pidgin (locate)23:37
artur__So, you that if I uninstall the amarok (for example) after this I should check if there is some amarok folder in my /~/  ?   Right?23:39

setuidPut 2 3.5" (desktop drives and 2 2.5" (laptop) drives into it, filled it with about 680GB of data, and am going to pull a drive... but I want to checksum everything before, let the Drobo relevel all the data, then checksum after, and see if it "breaks" anything23:45
setuidIf it doesn't, I'm going to put a 750G drive into the open slot, and see what happens after that23:46

setuidI happen to have 2 of those faulty 1TB Seagate drives, so I want to be sure nothing goes wrong while I'm pulling them to RMA them23:46
dominiqueYou don't have enough space for the hashes? xD23:46
