fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: there are different versions of kde at the moment00:00
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: kde 3.5 is the most stable but oldest, kde 4.1 is the kubuntu intrepid default, kde 4.2 is only released in a few days, but the RC is already very usable00:01
=== andre is now known as Guest40722
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: depending on which version you choose, the packages/sources are different00:01
HenryHeronfliegenderfrosch  It will work w/ 8.10?00:01
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: yes, i’m using 8.10 with kde 4.2 release candidate00:02
fliegenderfroschand it works fine00:02
HenryHeronfliegenderfrosch so I can use either synaptic package manager or apt-get (terminal) what do I look for (for 4.2)?00:03
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: in general, you have to choose between the 3.5 and the 4.x series. 3.5 is more mature, but 4.x is where all the new development happens and it is already very usable00:03
Dr_williskDE 4.2 RC 1: http://www.kubuntu.org/news/kde-4.2-rc100:03
fliegenderfroschyes, but for the 4.2 RC you have to add new sources00:03
fliegenderfroschDr_willis: thx, that’s what i was about to post :)00:04
HenryHeronfliegenderfrosch Do I hear a nother alternative, i.e., build from source?00:04
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: you could build it from source as well, but the packages are definitely the most comfortable solution00:05
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: plus you will probably get an upgrade to 4.2 final automatically00:05
HenryHeronfliegenderfrosch I agree... sight unseen. The instructions would be on the link Dr_willis mentioned?00:06
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: but remember that 4.2 isn’t officially supported by the kubuntu team00:06
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: exactly00:06
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: still I find 4.2 to be more usable than the official 4.1 packages00:07
HenryHeronfliegenderfrosch Apparently ubuntu intrepid isn00:07
HenryHeronfliegenderfrosch either... I'm having a hard time getting any help.00:07
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: you mean the gnome version? I’m actually quite happy with it (on my laptop), but that’s probably different for everyone00:08
HenryHeronfliegenderfrosch Yes, exactly.00:09
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: if your problems are related to the kernel or drivers, changing from gnome to kde won’t help however00:10
HenryHeronfliegenderfrosch It may be something I did, as I built a number of rather complex programs... then the desktop went fluey... (high tech term)...00:10
* Dr_willis is confused...00:11

HenryHeronfliegenderfrosch One last note as I saw your last message... getting the tools/utilities to understand what is going wrong seems a real problem in Linux? No? What to do?00:13
fliegenderfroschHenryHeron: which tools/utilities do you mean?00:14

kaddivia aptitude...01:12
kaddii was scrolling through the installed/not installed packages and latex-suite had a "c" in front of it, instead of the expected "i".01:12
kaddiso, because I was to lazy to check what I was doing, I selected it for installation01:13
kaddionly to realise afterwards that I actually already  installed it way back in october01:13
kaddi(this was totally my bad, I know... but it would be nice if you helped me clean up the mess anyways ;) )01:14
kaddiwhat probably happened, is that I installed latex-suite via the vim-addonmanager in october and which is why aptitude didn't recognize it as an isntalled package01:17
=== Taladan_ is now known as Taladan
Dr_willisahh... so vim-addonmanager confused  the apt-get stuff eh01:18
* Dr_willis has no idea what the vim-addonmanager does. :)01:18
Dr_williscant recall ever ysing that part of vim.01:18
kaddiit installs addons ;)01:19
kaddino, I was having trouble with the latex-suite01:19
kaddithere's a bug where the functions don't get mapped correctly, when installing latexsuite via aptitude01:19
kaddiinstalling it with the addonmanager somehow solves the problem01:19
Dr_williscould remove the thing both ways.. and then reinstall it the way you want I guess.01:20
Dr_willisive not used LaTeX since college. :)01:20
kaddihehe, im still in college, so ill have to use it for a while ;)01:20
kaddithe problem ist, that I havent really touched this pc in quite a while, so Im not sure where all the configurations are saved01:21
kaddiand I would be really annoyed if i lost the settings... which is why i dont really want to uninstall latexsuite01:22
Dr_willisIf they are system settings instaleld by a package. and not customized by you.. then reinstalling them via the package manager or whatever.. should restore them,01:22
Dr_willisIts only customized things that id be worrying about01:22
kaddino, they are customized by me01:22
kaddilatexsuite translates shortcuts into valid latex-code... something like turinung #/ into \frac{<++>} {<++>}<++>01:23
kaddiand I did set a lot of such shortcuts01:24

kaddibut he will delete them, if i uninstall the package?01:30
Dr_willisI dont think so.. but not sure..01:30
Dr_willisI wouldent think it would..  since it noticed the changed and dident install over them.01:30
fliegenderfroschkubuntu-user: I’ve got ubuntu 8.10 on it (and sometimes use the kde desktop as well), but I don’t have problems with wireless01:31

kubuntu-userbut I can't seem to connect to a simple unsecured network..01:33
Dr_williskaddi,  well if the sytem still works now.. you may want to jkust leave it alone..  or are you saying the vi-latex thing no longer works?01:34
kaddino its working, it's just throwing a lot of messages and i have to confirm 2 error messages before i can actually open vi01:35

Qb_MasterI get a glimpse of the desktop which looks kinda screwed up then it goes back to the login screen02:02
kaddii'd guess that your x-server is doing a runner.. try typing ctrl-alt-f1 when you get to the login screen and see if you can log in in the command line02:05
Qb_Masteryeah it logs in at the command line02:05

fliegenderfroschkaddi, Dr_willis: it seems that his kdm and xserver are starting fine, but kde itself doesn’t02:08

Qb_Masterh/o i'll try to get a screenshot02:10
fliegenderfroschQb_Master: I guess there are no old KDE configs which could cause tit to fail....02:12
Qb_Masterthat's what the desktop looks like upon loading, for like 3 seconds before it returns to login02:12
fliegenderfroschQb_Master: you could try upgrading to kde 4.2 RC and look if the problem still exists02:13

[EGC-i]ThinIceHi all. After upgrading to intrepid, the arrow keys on my keyboard as well as insert, delete etc no longer work. If I open up a text login these seem to function okay. any pointers?11:17
ActionParsnip[EGC-i]ThinIce: check keyboard settings in systemsettings11:18
ActionParsnip[EGC-i]ThinIce: if its correct, set it to something else, then back11:18
[EGC-i]ThinIceActionParsnip, hrm doesn't seem to be doing any good, I'm trying to use UK layout and currently generic 104-key PC is selected, not sure if thats right, my actual keyboard model isn't listed there but I've never had problems in the past11:27
ActionParsnip[EGC-i]ThinIce: check xorg.conf to see what it says about keyboard11:37
[EGC-i]ThinIceActionParsnip, hrm has pc104 and gb in there as well, although looking at an old backup file in the X11 directory it seems to be listed as pc105. Setting that in kde doesn't make any difference but if you think its worth it might be worth setting it in the file and restarting x?11:41
ActionParsnip[EGC-i]ThinIce: could be a fix, give it a go, just make sure you can rollback if you break stuff11:42
[EGC-i]ThinIceyeah I'll make a copy before editing it11:43

dmmainouI'm following the steps outlined in the zip file but having erroers.13:38
Dr_willisrun at user login? or at boot time?13:38
breadsticat user login... I want to be able to place thh command su -c [program] [user] in a script without being asked to type a password13:39
Dr_willisIm not even sure su works at all on ubuntu..13:40
Dr_willisye it does :) jut tried it..13:40
breadsticoh, it does, but obviously i can't just have a script running it because i need to type the password13:40
Dr_willisand it asks for the password of the user you are switching to.13:40
breadsticthat's how you get root access ....   sudo su -13:41
Dr_willis You could  use sudo I guess. and some how get around that password..13:41
Dr_willis do NOT use 'sudo su -' to get a root shell . :) thats not the proper way to do it13:41
breadsticbut I need to type my password in for sudo13:41
breadsticdon't i?13:41
Dr_willisYou can set up sudo to allow specifi commands to be ran by anyone  as root13:41
SlimeyPeteyou could set the script as setuid root, but that is something which has to be considered very carefully - it can be dangerous13:42
breadsticoh, ok, that sounds good13:42
breadsticyea, i've been trying that, but the program need gtk output, and setuid doesn't allow it13:42
Dr_willisfor a gui app ran by a different user. you most likely will need to also use the 'xhost + localhost' command to allow the other user access to the desktop13:43

noaXess!krdc | abdul13:45
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about krdc13:45
Dr_willisabdul,  one is built in to kde and gnome. that uses the vnc protocall :)13:45

abdulthanks i will try13:46
noaXesswhich service i habe to start, if my keyboard shortcuts won't work?13:46
Dr_willisnoaXess,  havin some issues with the nvidia drivers  lately.. not sure whats going on..  Its like they are installed.. but not being used.. and compiz dont want to work..and everything is sluggish13:46
TeLLuSTrying KDE4.2rc1 in intrepid and get many SIGABRT in korganizer after klicking OK to create a new timeblock. Anyone else get this?   #9  0x00007ff82fd25577 in CollectionFetchJob (cut) at /build/buildd/kdepimlibs-4.1.96/akonadi/collectionfetchjob.cpp:7213:47

noaXessnow.. now keyboard shortcut works :(.. some service crash.. but which one?13:48
Dr_willisI used to have it set to show the nvidia Logo.. and thats not even showing at X restart13:48
noaXessDr_willis: mine is showing13:48
noaXessgrrrr. ALT+TAB won't work..which service i need to restart to get them working instead of relogin to kde?13:48
aapzakI think abdul has a totally different view on what clients and servers are13:50
noaXesswhat service handle all the keyboard shortcuts?13:51
abdulaapzak your right i looked at krdc and it's not what i'm looking for13:51
aapzakabdul: tell us, what do you need?13:51
aapzakkrdc is the client13:51
aapzakmeaning, that is the application you use to login to a running terminal server13:51
noaXessgrrr.. kwin uses 30% cpu.. hm kde 4.2 rc1 is buggy13:52
abdulby the client downloading a small app. java or what ever. he or she chose a user name and pass then give me the control of the computer so i can remotely fix thier problem.13:52
Dr_willisYou can set up any vncserver on the remote box and connect to it via any vncclient. :) In theory13:53
aapzakabdul: in that case you will be the client13:53
abdullike http://teamviewer.com/index.aspx13:53
Dr_willisof course vnc is not the best thing to use over the wild and nasty internet. :)13:53
aapzakabdul: and your client need to be running the vnc or rdc servers13:53
abdulbut i'm not sure of security. i would like to have control if you know what i mean13:53
abdulyes. but my client are not computer savvy13:54
aapzakso you're looking for a solution in which they can easily handover their desktop to you, without complicated setup on their side13:55
Dr_williswith ssh, you could in theory ssh in , start a vncserver.. then connect via vnc.. with them not even looking at the pc. :)13:55
aapzakyour clients, what do they use? windows? osx? linux?13:55
Dr_willisproblem with remote desktops.. is what do ya do when that part is also crashed. :)13:56
aapzakI don't know anything about taking over windows machines.13:57
abdulmostly i would like to show them how to use certain program or so.13:57
aapzakI don't know anything about windows machines.13:57
Dr_willisvnc, or some how windows hsa some sort of remote-desktop thing.. but ive never used the windows thing. .Just vnc.13:57
aapzakI'm sorry abdul , cannot help you further here.13:59
noaXessno idea which service for keyboard shortcuts?13:59

noaXessTm_T: how to see what nvidia driver is loaded?14:59
noaXessi have all repos, updates enabled in sources..15:00

noaXessTm_T: do i need install the latest driver?15:01
noaXessi mean, instead of upgrading the current 17715:01

noaXessTm_T: ok.. how to upgrade to them, i don't see any in the package list15:03
Tm_TnoaXess: do following in konsole: "grep GLX /var/log/Xorg.0.log"15:04

ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, first ensure ARTS is running, by going to K Menu -> System Settings -> Sound System and making sure "Enable the sound system" is checked. If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP316:35

BluesKajGoan, if you have scipting experience , why not make a bin/sh and place it in init.d ..let it run as a daemon17:22
noir_lordGoan, it should be simple enough to set up cron to do what you want (by default cron checks every minute to see if any jobs are due to be executed) so you have the resolution you need time wise17:22

paolohi. I have some problems with audio. I can hear it with the pc speaker, but I can't hear it with headphones. all worked since one day ago, and now I don't understand what has happened. I tried different headphones, but the result is the same17:47
rickestpaolo: when you say pc speaker do you mean the ones plugged into your soundcard or the one inside your computer?17:48
paolorickest: the one inside17:51
rickestpaolo: that one really doesn't have anything to do with regular sound; i.e., videos, mp3s, etc.  so your real audio hardware is probably either unrecognized (no driver) or misconfigured17:51
paolorickest: I can hear all the audio types with this speaker17:52

moocowneothecat: fair enough19:12
neothecatbecause i have spent all afternoons trying to set things up, after trying nth different recommendations online, and none of them worked.19:13
hyper__chmoocow: just call that page, enter your terms and it will get then a url that you can give to others... even bette, you can also convert it to a tinyurl... then with a flash animation the search terms will be entered and a search will be conducted :)19:13
neothecatand then you spend a few minutes chatting with someone on irc who went through the same pain as you, and it gets done right away.19:14
hyper__chneothecat: gcaldaemon uses java... basicall you create an ical file in which you can save the stuff and that you can then sync with google19:14
neothecatand that's why i didn't ask for anybody to actually show me how, i just wanted to know someone has successfully done it.  but hyper_ch was nice enough to hold my hand anyway :)19:14

j3freahyper__ch: in other words I havent set it up but im willing to19:24
hyper__chj3frea: where do you have then RC from? 8.10 does not ship RC19:24
j3freahyper__ch: i dont have the rc yet - i would use the ppa to get it though19:24
hyper__chj3frea: well, upgrade will be incremental.... but at lot of basic things have changed from 4.1 to 4.2 RC19:24
j3freahyper__ch: ya, i wont have a good connection from monday onwards so im wondering whether id have to get 4.2 entirely or whether it would be a smaller update if i already had the rc19:25
j3freahyper__ch: so im deciding whether or not to get the rc19:25
hyper__chj3frea: updates will be smaller on each "upgrade" but overall you will download more stuff19:26
elitroujenda: he asked you politely enough to ask him in the common room, not in the private...19:26
j3freahyper__ch: right now i can download a lot - it is more whether i will need to download a lot when 4.2 actually comes out19:26
hyper__chj3frea: I mean if you upgrade to rc now and later to stable then, with both upgrades combined, you will ahve downloaded more19:27
hyper__chj3frea: compared to if you just upgrade from 4.1 to 4.2 stable19:27
j3freahyper__ch: but if i download rc now then the stable 4.2 will be less right?19:28
hyper__chj3frea: yes19:28
j3freahyper__ch: the reason is that I will not have a good connection soon so i want to save on future downloads19:28
hyper__chj3frea: not having a good connectino sux :(19:28
j3freahyper__ch: tell me about it - im in south africa19:29
j3freahyper__ch: and are you sure that there will be an incremental update? on #kde they said that there would not be although i realise that kubuntu does stuff on their own19:29
hyper__chj3frea: ask Mark to build a 1GB dedicated line for you :)19:29
j3freahyper__ch: okay...19:29
j3freahyper__ch: what's his nick ? :D19:29
hyper__chj3frea: well, there won't be any 4.2 for Kubuntu 8.1019:29
hyper__chj3frea: but the PPA will very likely upgrade19:29
hyper__chj3frea: so it will be incremental19:30
hyper__chj3frea: not sure about 9.0419:30
j3freahyper__ch: okay - then that's awesome...19:30
j3freahyper__ch: as far as i know 9.04 plans to include 4.219:30
hyper__chj3frea: haven't tried it yet...19:30
j3freahyper__ch: rc or kde4?19:30
hyper__chj3frea: 9.0419:31

hyper__chj3frea: amarok neon is a nightly updated package from svn19:36

konStR|Sangreal: Might be the wrong driver for your video card?20:26
konor outdated20:27
ghostcubeStR|Sangreal, sounds like a driver problem  on youre system and xard you dont need the closed drivers20:27
ghostcubethe opensource ones would work fine20:27
brandon__<stdin>yes I saw those links, but they all seem to be refferring to before hand and not after the fact20:27
stdinbrandon__: does your system have a "restore" feature? It's sometimes shows before grub, like "F11 System Restore". It doesn't matter in what order you installed, as long as you setup grub last. or restore the windows bootloader and then grub20:28
stdinbrandon__: if you have the install CD/DVD there is an advanced/other20:30
stdin options section. Within it are options to run a startup repair20:30
brandon__ok will try thanks20:33

Name141I have a problem with my external not working in 8.04 LTS.   I run the install for 8.04 and it causes my external drive's light to go "red".  And it hangs.  However, I run the install for 8.10 and it doesn't hang up.  Should I try to flip off the hard drive, install the OS, upgrade it, then flip back on the HD?  Or would I be wasting my time as it wont work even after upgrade?  I have problems with 8.10.21:55
