ghostcubebug 25446800:01
PapfoxCurrently running Kdebase 4.1.4ununtu1~intrepid2. Garbage in newly created windows for a couple of seconds is a symptom - not sure if it was relevant. Not getting frozen logout image.00:03
ghostcubenvidia 180x ?00:04
ghostcubebut doesnt matter this is a problem inside kubuntu and fc1000:04
PapfoxThe biggest pain is that if I have SecondLife running and I bring up Firefox over it to look something up scrolling renders the scrolled portion of th epage unreadable.00:04
marcellibrary libncurses.so.5 exist, how can i find documentation about it ?00:05

walbertHey folks.  I'm doing some work on a project that uses GTK under Kubuntu, and I'd like to be able to change my gtk themes around.  I installed gtk-engine-* and gtk-theme-switch2, but i still only get the default options of Qt4 and Raleigh.  What am I doing wrong?00:06
PapfoxThat bug looks liek one of the problems but it's the scrolling corruption that is driving em mad.00:07
PapfoxShould I try nvidia 180?00:07
PapfoxI can see it in Synaptic but not in the Hardware Drivers tool.00:08
ghostcubePapfox, wouldnt help but afaik this should get into SRU as ScottK told in the bug report00:10
ghostcubestable release upgrade00:10
dsnaikePapfox i had same problem upgraded to kde4.2 it worked for me00:11
PapfoxIs 4.2 in one of the repos? If so which one?00:12
jammen33deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-experimental/ubuntu intrepid main00:12
jammen33i think00:12
dsnaikePapfox www.kubuntu.org/news/kde-4.2-rc1 will give u whats needed00:13
ghostcubein 2 days the final comes out00:13
ghostcubemaybe wait this two days :)00:13
PapfoxThanks guys. I'll do that. WHen is it due to go mainstream?00:14
jammen33teh 28thish ithink00:16
PapfoxIs that when it will find its way into the standard repos (I have backports and proposed turned on)00:19
jammen33ithink it wont be relised on intrepid00:19
jammen33u'll have to use the ppa00:19
jammen33or go to jaunty00:20
PapfoxThanks. The other option would be to give KDE4 up as a bad job. Is it possible to go back to KDE3 on Intrepid?00:21
jammen33it was a kde4 only00:21
jammen33you would have to go back to 8.0400:21
ghostcubePapfox, hmm kde 4.2 will be fine00:21
ghostcubemore options00:21
jammen33im using kde4.2 now and it works great00:22
ghostcubeand the video problem  is not kde related00:22
PapfoxDo you know what it is if it's not KDE?00:22
ghostcubean error in xorg00:23
ghostcubebut the nvidia 180 drivers from repo would be better too for your card00:23
ghostcubecan anyone confirm that sorting the items in kde 4.x in k-menu classic isnt working00:24
ghostcubeit doesnt take care of the menu editor ?00:24
PapfoxThanks :) Ghostcube, do you know if a bug has been filed against this in xorg?00:25

Papfox@dsnaike, I'm not sure what you mean. What is a decorator and how do I find out?00:28
BattleStarJesusI'm running Kubuntu with the Nvidia driver (version 177.82), I have using Compiz-Fusion and Emerald.  When I open video media with any media player it plays, but when I try to enable full-screen or try to play the next video in a playlist, the player shuts down.

dsnaikebut go thru the list and select what you need00:36
PapfoxWill that cause the CTRL_ALT_SHIFT_arrows to be trapped like in Gnome?00:38
dsnaikeif what will cause it00:39
PapfoxInstalling compiz on KDE? SOmething is trapping that key combo in Gnome (thought it might be compiz) to switch workspaces. It's a killer for Secondlife as that is one of the key combos that moves the camera00:41

byteme_I have a friend that wants to try kubuntu01:12
byteme_and I am hes. to give him kde 4.1.1 as in my opinion it harder to use than 3.501:13
byteme_4.1 to me is overly complex for a simple operation that would be less clicks in 3.501:14
byteme_am I thinking wrong? after all 3.5 is on its way out01:14
mefisto__byteme_: nothing wrong with that thinking. I'd agree01:15
byteme_I just built him a great system and he will be dual booting01:16
mefisto__byteme_: you could give your friend kubuntu hardy (which has kde3) and install kde4 from ppa repo for a taste of things to come01:17
byteme_I told like to give away anything but the latest stuff, but I feel I will be getting a ton more 'help me & how to' calls with 4.101:17
byteme_yeah, good idea01:18
mefisto__byteme_: then you'll have the opportunity to help with the upgrade to 9.04 when kde4 will hopefully be more mature01:19
byteme_yeah sweet01:19
hec_hello @ all, need help to configure my wlan card in kubuntu 8.1001:20

byteme_its funny I am beta testing Windows 7 for M$... and the start bar is a complete rip off the KDE task bar01:21
byteme_(3.5 version)01:22
byteme_it's a spoofed up version of Vista01:22
byteme_the start bar id even partially trasparent01:23
jammen33well at least their copying something good01:23
byteme_I wonder when they will ever get an original idea01:24
byteme_they used to have so many cool new stuff, now they copy Linux and MAC01:24
jammen33is their still there01:24
jammen33if MS is still around in 303301:25
hec_has nobody a tip for me?01:25
byteme_lol, got yeah01:25
byteme_hec_: is it a fresh install?01:26
etfb*** I just made my sound work!!!!01:26
hec_yes, with the updates per cable01:26
etfbHow the hell did I do that???01:26
hec_i se the card with lspci01:26
etfbI think it was the sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel!01:27
etfbNow how do I make that persistent for the next time I boot?  Does anyone know?01:27
mister-tea-laptoadd it to grub01:27
byteme_should be auto, but i have seen where it wasnt and I forgot the command01:27
etfbmister-tea-lapto: How so?  I presume it's an option like splash and... all the rest that I don't recall.  But what syntax?01:28
byteme_can one have 8.10 with kde 3.5? where are the options, man??!!01:28
byteme_I want my freedom01:29
mister-tea-laptoI had the same problem with a different card and I just added the modprobe line to my grub01:29
jammen33byteme_: i dont think so, unless you compile from source01:29
etfbbyteme_: Looks like they don't want you using 3.5 any more.  I don't blame them -- supporting two versions is a pain.  But it's bad for those of us who don't like waiting for the basics to work....01:29
jammen33or those with old computers01:30
byteme_yeah, exactly. I love the look of 4.1, but IMO it just isnt ready (for me)01:30
etfbYou want irony?  The first YouTube I opened to check that the sound worked there had had its audio disabled because of copyright...01:31
etfbThe second one worked though.01:31
etfbSo, refresh my memory here.  Modprobe does... what?  Activates an inactive module in the kernel, right?01:33
etfbOr does it install it, like loading a DLL in Windows?01:33
Dr_willisprobes a module01:34
Dr_willismodule = kernel driver01:34
Dr_willismodprobe networkcarddriver.ko     -> loads that driver for whatever device01:34
etfbAh, Dr_willis -- good to see you.  My memory may be hazy, but it seems any time I've solved a problem in Linux, you've had a hand in it somewhere.  So tell me, if modprobe snd-hda-intel is the command to make my sound miraculously start working, what do I need to edit so I get that effect every time I reboot?01:35
ubottuTo compile modules and drivers that are not bundled with the standard kernel,  for more info /msg ubottu kernel  , install the relevant package, usually called "<modulename>-source", and run « sudo module-assistant » (you will have to do this again after kernel updates). To prevent specific modules from loading, see /msg ubottu blacklist01:36
Dr_willisits supposed to auto load.. hal is suppose to handle that i think.. or theres a modules file that autoloads stuff also01:36
Dr_willis# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.01:36
etfbDr_willis: That was it!  I remember seeing that file, but couldn't recall the name.  /etc/modules is too simple - it should be something like /etc/splinge- and be stored in a cryptic XML format...01:38
etfbRebooting it now... let's see if it makes pretty noises at me...01:40
Dr_willisthat would be windows.. only it would be in  c:/Windows/Winlibs/win32/system32/stuff/local/roaming/cssid-1234-213-5243-51-234-5245-234-234-65-32453425234-23432-501:40

etfbKDE4: Because Microsoft Vista proved that "fit and finish" is optional.01:56

sashayeyou switched to vista01:56
etfbsashaye: Yes, I did.  Gods only know how.  modprobe snd-hda-intel did it, and putting that module name in /etc/modules made it permanent.01:57

Dr_willisThe Downadup worm — also called Conflicker — has now infected an estimated 10 million PCs worldwide,05:50
DaSkreechWell I think it's mostly cause he insulted them so badly and publicly05:50
Dr_willisgnome is dumbed down. :)05:50
Dr_willishe was right05:50
Dr_willisHe thinks KDE 4 is a 'disaster.' Although it's improved recently, he'll find many who agree with this prognosis, and KDE 4 can be painful to use."05:51
Dr_willisHe dident like gnome because it was 'dumbed down' it still is.05:51
Dr_willisi alsoo agree with his kde4 comments. :)05:52
DaSkreechThough he has only used KDE 4.005:52
Dr_willis4.2 is an improvement.. but i think at this rate i will wait for kde 5.605:54
DaSkreechThat's probably 4-5 years in the future05:58
Dr_willisI will stick with JWM till then. :05:58

Dr_willisThe following packages will be REMOVED:06:08
Dr_willis  kdeplasma-addons libkexiv2-706:08

SilentDishello :)  having a bit of problem with knetworkmanager and setting up a simple static IP for a LAN with no DHCP server.  I'm unsure what to fill in for a few of the fields.  I'd like to give this machine
caustinDr_willis: thanks, I'll try now.06:13
SilentDisIP addy:, netmask what do i fill in for gateway dns addr. and dns search?  the interface refuses to come up without these filled in.06:14
Dr_willisi use the ip of my router for my DNS.. or the isp's dns ip  - if i know it06:14
Dr_willisgateway  = router ip also06:14
SilentDisDr_willis: no router.  ad hoc06:14
SilentDisDr_willis: just 2 machines with a simple switch between 'em.06:15
Dr_willisip of the machine  that is doing the internet shareing perhaps? or is this just a peer to peer lan?06:15
Dr_willisthen  it wont matter mich i imagine..06:15
Dr_willisip of other box or perhaps06:15
Dr_willisor install a dhcp server on one machine.06:16
SilentDisDr_willis: i've never been able to get any sharing working right, that was my first thought as well.  network manager keeps screwing up all the settings :(06:16
SilentDisDr_willis: never been able to get a DHCP server setup right either, same problem.06:16
Dr_willisinsrtall dhcp server.. set both machines to use dhcp/auto and it should work   or at least it has for me in the past06:17
Dr_willisthis is a wireless network? or wired?06:17
SilentDis<machine> - <simple switch> - <machine>06:17
Dr_willisyou are usng proper hardware?   :)  looks like it.06:17
SilentDisDr_willis: back in... hmm... 7.04 or so... this all worked great.  now I have no end to trouble getting things setup right with network manager constantly stealing ports and such.  it's almost more hastle than it's worth to me, mainly because i use EVDO to get on the 'net (only thing available to me out here) from my cellphone, which, obviously, comes with me when i leave06:19
ohhaiHow do I make a folderview with my Desktop in KDE 4.2 RC1 full screen and have a background for it?06:20
SilentDisi'd love to get network sharing working, and a dhcp server running on this machine, i've just given up hope because i've had so many problems.06:20
Dr_williscould be network manaer trying to be smart.. but ive not tried your exact situation in ages06:21
Dr_willisI always got a little router handy06:21
Dr_willisso is one machine going to the internet some how?06:21
SilentDisif i could find a router with a usb port that could handle this kinda thing, i'd switch to it in a heartbeat.  i'm seriously thinking of bringing in a low powered computer to the mix and connecting the cellphone to that and using it like a 'router' with ubutnu server.06:22
Dr_willisusb port? phone? what are ya trying to do? im missing somthing hehe...06:22
SilentDislol understandable.  my internet connection is provided via EVDO.  I connect a USB cable to my cellphone, HAL assigns it ttyACM0, network manager actually recognizes it as an EVDO capable device, and Just Works (tm).06:23
Dr_willisSo you are trying to get the 2nd pc going thrugh the first one?06:24
Dr_willisto get to the internetz?06:24
SilentDisthat would be ideal, yes, but since my cellphone comes with me, the settings keep screwing up, and i can never get stuff to 'stick'.06:24
Dr_williscell -> pc1 --> pc206:25
Dr_willispc1 would be  the gateway and dns server for the 2nd one.06:25
ubottuIf you want to share the internet connection of your ubuntu machine with other machines in the network see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InternetConnectionSharing - You may also use !firestarter: http://www.fs-security.com/docs/connection-sharing.php06:25
Dr_willisthat url may have some info also06:25
SilentDisthat's the idea, but as i said, gotta bring down the 'net connection constantly, and have it come back up worry-free.  the dhcp servers i've tried never work right.06:25
knichow do i request a reset of my network adapters dhcp (similar to pump) on cmdline for kubuntu?06:26
SilentDisDr_willis: reading now, i'll give it another go, i assume i just keep missing something in the configs.06:27
BentFrankSilentDis:  Network Manager has a bug that resets youback to DHCP.  If you want static IP follow this...http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-set-a-static-ip-address-in-ubuntu-810-intrepid-ibex.html06:39
SilentDisBentFrank: thanks for that :D06:40
SilentDisBentFrank: ah crap.  not good, bug is in network manager that keeps resetting my stuff.  and network manager is what i use to setup the evdo connection.  aargh.06:41
BentFrankyeah, unf'ly part of the fix is to remove network manager06:43
Dr_willisyea - network manager has cause issues over the years... :)06:43
ohhaiHow do I upgrade OpenOffice.org to the 3rd version?06:44
SilentDisi guess i'll need to grab kppp before i go any further on any of this then.06:44
SilentDiswith network manager out of the picture, though, i should be able to get this setup on my own.  that's been the bane of my existance this whole time >.<06:46

ubottuTo make programs autostart with your KDE session, you can make a link to it in ~/.kde/Autostart. In KDE 3.X the package 'kcontrol-autostart' makes a kcontrol item for handling items in that directory. For a complete KDE 3.X guide, see http://jucato.org/kde/kde-autostart.html09:14

afd_is it possible to use dashboard widgets in plasma? I've tried 2 widgets already downloaded from apple.com and none of them can be selected when adding a new widget from file11:00
afd_should I unzip them?11:00
Dr_willisadf_ i dident think thse were useable on kde4's stuff11:00
OxDeadC0deafd_ might not work, but i bet it's a file extension issue?11:01
Dr_willisof course i do recaall that being a feature to be worked on.. but never seen it used yet11:01
OxDeadC0deafd_ or figure out the right plasmapkg -i command to install the zipfile11:01
etfbafd_: I can't imagine they would be.  OSX != Linux, and dashboard stuff assumes some proprietary Safari features.11:01
Dr_williskde4 is very much a work in progress. :)11:01

afd_etfb: so then why implement support for dashboard widgets?11:02
afd_if none of them are going to work?11:02
Dr_willis'Right now Plasma implements exactly zero of them in the Dashboard ScriptEngine, causing several widgets to fail when loaded.'11:02
OxDeadC0demicha_ very cool11:02

micha__not so big works fine on my notebook and you can have a look at how things are developing ... OxDeadC0de11:03
Dr_willisafd_,  from wha ti am readins at that site.. only the most basic of osx widgets might work.11:03
micha__i am still using kde3 because kde4 is not as customizable as i like it to be ... but with the relase of 4.2 i might go for it :)11:04
OxDeadC0demicha_ I use nightly-neon's nightly svn build for that, or 4.2rc1 from launchpad (also part of the neon project)11:05
micha__well i might not have much choice because it will get into debian/sid and that would mean i get it if i like it or not :)11:05

gmasucciulysses, in my case the problem is clear.  The file org.soprano.Model.xml is contained both in soprano-daemon and libsoprano-dev and the packaege manager goes crazy about it...so the prob is in these 2 packages. But I'm on jaunty and I don't know if the intrepid backport is affected by the same problem :)11:33

draikIs lirc a module or a service? Either way, I'm not finding it to disable from startup.13:51
=== ubuntu is now known as audiopathik
pilatdraik: hm.. I don't see "lirc" in my precesses at all..13:52
pilatdraik: what about System settings :: Advanced :: Service manager?13:53
draikpilat: lirc fails at boot and I don't have anything for lirc to run so I would rather disable it, and possibly other services/modules, to speed up the startup time.13:54
draikpilat: I'm there now, nothing mentioned.13:54
pilatand what "modinfo lirc" says?13:54

pilatStR|Sangreal: I dont's have anything about "Generic Keyboard" in my xorg.conf, and everything is well configured thrugh KDE's system settings. Maybe, ithas a sense to comment this section out (Intrepid uses HAL, which makes quite good work in auto-mode)?13:59
FrederickFolks what %u stands for when calling an application?13:59
gps23Frederick, u mean in rox filer?14:01
pilatdraik: do you have TV tuner or such (presuming remote control) installed?14:02

draikpilat: Nope. Nothing of the sort.14:03
gps23Frederick, where have you seen %u?14:04
Frederickkde in the command to launch aplications from kde menu14:04
Frederickbash does not lists %u as a command14:04
gps23Frederick, i don't remember seeing it, its most probably used as a placeholder for something14:05
pilatdraik: maybe "sudo aptitude uninstall lirc"?.. I don't have lirc installed, at all, for example.14:05
draikpilat: Package lirc is not installed, so not removed14:06
pilatFrederick: maybe %u stands for "user"? Ayway, this seems to be something application-specific.14:06
pilatdraik: and where you see this program (that it actually works)?14:07
Frederickpilat: I have it for many apps14:07
pilatFrederick: in "File type associations"?14:07

bitmonsterhi. i have a raid hdd that features usb and sata connections. unfortunately the installation only works via usb as the bios only support boot from usb. to support sata i own a pcmcia controller which i want to boot from a usb stick (/boot is already installed on the stick). how can i use e.g. rdinit to provide the necessary modules of the pcmcia controller to migrate from usb connectivity to sata connectivity of the hdd?14:23
bitmonsterand how can i find which are the appropriate modules?14:24
pilatdraik: another point: do you have "lirc" in the list of processes? (Alt+F2; then click <Show system activity> Icont)?14:26

aboSamoortrying to add the repository here http://www.kubuntu.org/news/kde-4.2-beta-2 I can find a way to authenticate this repository14:31
pilatdraik: couldn't find it in the conf/init files as well (sudo grep -ir "irc" /etc/*), except of couple of lines, in /etc/bash_completion and in /mplayer/input.conf... Maybe, that's some hardware checks by kernel (not even a module, but the core)?14:32
pilatdraik: if it's not running after you start, you may simply ignor these messages, I suggest.14:33

kalpi chose sum desktop effects and now i dont see anything wen it boots14:43
kalpit books ok, but the screen is all balck14:43
kaIs the whole screen black or do see a commandline?14:44
kalpentire thing is black and jus coz i know where the icons are , i click and log out14:44
kaok no problem...14:46
ActionParsnip1kalp: do you get a logon screen when you boot?14:46
kaI just need to find the config file that you need to change14:47
kalpyes, i do get a login screen14:48
kakalp: Doyou use compiz or are we talking about KDE4 effects?14:48
ActionParsnip1kalp: thats good14:48
kalpi put in the password then the desktop is all black, its default , so i am positive its kde414:48
ActionParsnip1kalp: you could drop to root console boot and rename ~/.kde14:50
kaActionParsnip1: Couldn't he just delete the kwinrc file in .kde/share/config folder As far as I can see this is the file controlling the settings for desktop effects14:51
kalpwen i login from terminal to root login, the touch pad isnt workin, so cant do anything there14:51
kalpis that a solution that can be done from terminal?14:52
ActionParsnip1kalp: i'd do what ka recommends, but rename instead, if that doesnt fly, rename the whole thing14:52
kalpkwinrc isit?14:52

Black_Monkeydoes anyone have any idea why installing the nvidia graphics driver should make me lose audio?14:53
kalp~/.kde , what is this? sorry guys i am new to this14:53
gps23kalp, i think better way is to open kwinrc file and change line compositing=true to compisiting=false14:53

kalpdo u kno the path for kwinrc file?14:53
kalpi cud do that in nano14:54
kait is /home/Yourusername/.kde/share/config14:54
gps23kalp, when u reach logon prompt, open console using ctrl-alt-f114:54
kaor rather .kde/share/config/kwinrc14:54
gps23kalp, then use vim/nano to open and edit file described by ka14:54
ActionParsnip1kalp: reach logon, hit session type and change it to console logon14:55
kalpguys thanks , i wil try that right away14:55
kakalp: have you used vi or nano before?14:55
ActionParsnip1kalp: it will drop you to console where you can login as normal and rename the file14:55
kalpnano, i have14:55
kaok then you are all set.14:55
kaSo guys any one recal my earlier question? About deleting the same text in multiple files with a gui app?14:56
ActionParsnip1ka: you can use awk and cut14:56
gps23ka, why don't u used sed?14:57
kayes I find many links to sed, but somehow the commands for sed dont seem to work because of the multiline blob I need to remove...14:58
ActionParsnip1ka: then use a find exec combo to find multiple files14:59
kaBut then again I suspect there is a sed command for this to.14:59
gps23ka, use s/// with replacement text as ""14:59
kaI just read a post saying that they used wingrep to remove the offending lines of code and I thoight well linux probably has something like this to...15:00

ActionParsnip1PodeCoet: if you run mount, you will see the mount options it has used to mount it, check it is mounted rw15:05
gps23ka, u can try: for file in `find <path>`; do sed -i s/<regex for script>// $file ; done;15:06

enigI was checking out the permissions, The owner is root, but all others can view files.16:11
enigStill i get access denied16:11
gps23enig, for directory i think u need execute permissions to list the files16:12
enigAnd still giving the "only root can mount the devices"16:12
gps23enig, as a quick fix u can change owner of the directories16:13
gps23enig but there has to be a better way16:13

syockitbeth_: you can enable repositories temporarily. After installing the packages, you can disable it. You get no update notifications though18:50
=== vance is now known as countryfolks69

stnormalhey, I kind of hosed my kubuntu install trying to get a program to work. There was a conflict that required me to uninstall kubuntu-desktop, I figured worst case I'd just be stuck with a terminal, but it still tries to render the GUI and absolutely nothing works18:58
=== ubuntu is now known as ulysses__
leo_rockwayis there any replacement for http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-experimental/ubuntu/dists/hardy/ ? I want to install KDE4.2RC but Hardy's packages are empty18:58
stnormalI tried booting into the recovery mode, but I can't reinstall kubuntu-desktop because there's no internet access18:58
syockitnext time someone could try developing package manager which downloads specific packages from a repo. That'll introduce dependency hells!18:59
stnormalany ideas for how I could get to a terminal through the regular boot sequence, or get internet access in the recovery mode?19:00
syockitleo_rockway: hardy's far too old for that. maintenance is a pain in the ///19:00
leo_rockwaysyockit: so I take it there won't be a backport of 4.2 final?19:00
beth_I want to pull a newer kernel, so I enabled the prerelease sources and updated, I see it now when I search, but I don't know all the different components I'd need to pull in to get a working kernel, is there a virtual package to make this easier?19:01
syockitstnormal: Depends on method of connection. You can boot as single user mode and select command prompt (it's usually the second line during grub)19:01
syockitstnormal: if it's wifi, you'll have to know the command line for wifi managers19:02
stnormalthe second line during grub is "recovery mode", and I don't know the command line to get my internet connection to work19:02
stnormalit's not wifi19:02
DaSkreechstnormal: at grub press e twice then at the end type single then press enter then b19:03
syockitstnormal: hmm. do you have live CD?19:03
DaSkreechbeth_: linux-image19:03
stnormalI do have the live CD19:03
beth_DaSkreech thanks19:04
syockitstnormal: if you do, you can chroot and repair packages19:04
syockitlive CD is slow tho19:04
stnormalanyhow, I can get to the kubuntu log-in screen19:04
syockitI use live usb19:04
syockitstnormal: and login fails?19:04
stnormalwill one of the session types/menu options get me to a prompt?19:04
stnormalno, the GUI is hosed19:04
stnormalnothing gets rendered right19:04
DaSkreechstnormal: sudo /etc/init.d/kdm restart19:05

altrortlaheiiii buddies.... i'm looking for handicap people hardware and software solution any tips?19:05
stnormalas soon as I can get to a prompt with internet access, I'm just going to reinstall kubuntu-desktop and it's dependencies19:05
syockitstnormal: that's more of xorg trouble. yup, you should repair them packages. but no internet, you say?19:05
syockitstnormal: can you see what ifconfig does19:06
stnormaluhh, if I get back to the recovery console19:06
stnormallet me try a few things first19:06
stnormalnice, the login screen had an option for console login, i should be fine19:06
DaSkreechstnormal: or failsafe19:07
DaSkreechit opens X and a xterm19:07
DaSkreechYou will have to put kwin& as the first command but you should be ok after that19:07
syockitokay, xorg's still safe then19:07
stnormalyeah... the long version of my problem is that I've got a really poorly designed piece of scientific software that I'm trying to get to work (Gaussview), and I noticed that the MesaGL library it uses is the software one19:08
syockitaltrortla: They go by the name "Accessibilites"19:08
syockitaltrortla: look for it in System Settings19:08
stnormalso I figured I'd remove the hardware ones to see if that made it work right, but that required removing kubuntu-desktop19:09
stnormaland that hosed things19:09
stnormalis there a way to run ubuntu without anything (KDE/Gnome) over X server?19:10
syockitstnormal: yes, you can run with just window managers, and lots of terminals19:10
stnormalso how would I go from kubuntu to that?19:11
stnormalwhat would I have to remove/disable?19:11
DaSkreechinstall ubuntu-server and don't install *-desktop packages19:11
DaSkreechsee #fluxbuntu19:11
ubottuIf you want to remove all !KDE packages, type « sudo apt-get remove kdelibs4c2 ; sudo apt-get remove kdelibs5 ; sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop »19:11

csc_is there a way to not be prompted for installing updates of specific packages only ? i have an updater daemon running on the desktop but i dont want to unselect the packages i modified for my needs  each time19:14
syockitcsc_: is that you beth?19:17
syockitcsc_: or I got the wrong person19:17
DaSkreechcsc_: aptitude can pin packages19:17
syockitcsc_: for now, you can only tell package manager to hold19:18
syockitcsc_: aptitude uses a different state file. U need to use dpkg19:18
syockitcsc_: for easy task, use either synaptic or adept19:18
beth_what is the current version of the kernel for stable intrepid?19:19

dapper-danielIs anyone here using XEN 3.3 with Nividia drivers? Drivers compile fine but X.org freezes...19:19

syockitKDesk: sorry, was supposed to be apm19:38

leo_rockwayWishingMaster: dpkg --purge I believe19:39
KDeskah, do you think that I should put apm=off i grub?19:39
WishingMasteri have tried apt-get purge19:39
DaSkreechWishingMaster: technically it's already gone19:39
leo_rockwayWishingMaster: apt-get remove --purge works only for installed packages19:39
DaSkreechWishingMaster: It's apt-get remove kate --purge19:39
syockitKDesk: then it won't work?19:40
leo_rockwayif the package got uninstalled without being purged then you can dpkg --purge19:40
WishingMasterhmmmm das`19:40
KDesksyockit: I dont know :(19:40
KDeskJust asking :)19:40
syockitKDesk: what's the make of your pc?19:40
tarmathhi lads... i cant get any sound working in flash... used to work before... but not on kubuntu 8.10.... ive been looking around trying stuff but to no avail...19:40
KDeskthis is generic, but in a Dell with intel I had the same problem.19:41
dtchentarmath: you're not pulseaudio, are you?19:41
tarmathdtchen: not 'really' but ive tried after starting it manually...19:42
KDeskWhy is pulseaudio installed by default in so may distros? If it makes more problems that anything...19:42
dtchentarmath: using pulseaudio introduces quite a few headaches19:42
dcxwhy does can't I hear audio from my browser?19:42
leo_rockwayKDesk: xset dpms force off19:42
syockitKDesk: maybe the same reason why kde4.0 was introduced in hardy :p19:42
dtchenKDesk: because it's a chicken-and-egg problem19:42

leo_rockwayKDesk: see if that turns your backlight off19:43
=== andrea is now known as Guest71721
dtchenKDesk: the only way bugs get fixed is to field it in popular distro releases19:43
syockitleo_rockway: okay I'll try19:43
tarmathdtchen: it's not started by default... like right now... and I dont have any sound in flash19:43
tarmathI thought Id try my luck with it since it's supposed to be supported starting flash 10...19:43
leo_rockwayif it does then maybe you can make a script out of it or smth19:43
dtchentarmath: you don't need pulseaudio to get audible sound with Flash19:44
dcxBut I can hear everthing else except for what's pn my internet browser19:44
KDeskleo_rockway: It goes off, but the backlight is still on.19:44
dtchentarmath: do you actually use anything specific to pulseaudio?19:44
tarmathdtchen: I dont use pulseaudio, I just tried with it...19:44
leo_rockwayKDesk: that command should've turned your backlight off. There's your problem.19:44
leo_rockwayKDesk: acpi uses xset dpms to turn off the backlight19:45
dtchentarmath: ok, first, make sure you remove the pulseaudio packages19:45
KDeskleo_rockway: Yes? Oh, now I now the problem, that is good :) What can I do? Report a bug?19:45
dtchentarmath: at the very least, remove the pulseaudio package itself19:45
syockitKDesk: somethings wrong with dpms then19:45
tarmathdtchen: ok doing that now...19:45
syockitKDesk: can you control brightness?19:45
leo_rockwayKDesk: yeah, I'd say reporting a bug is a good idea. That's not the expected behaviour at all.19:45
KDesksyockit: only from the monitor, not from the OS19:46
KDeskleo_rockway: where should I report that, launchpad?19:46
carlosmoraisi need a small help19:47
leo_rockwayKDesk: Launchpad, yes19:47
dtchentarmath: after you've removed it, restart your web browser.19:47
dtchentarmath: i presume you're using konqueror?19:47
leo_rockwayKDesk: provide as much information as you can when filing the bug report19:47
tarmathdtchen: firefox in fact...19:47
dtchentarmath: ok, then you'll need to restart all firefox instances19:47
dtchentarmath: also, make sure you only have *one* Flash plugin instance installed19:48
dtchentarmath: check with about:plugins19:48
tarmathdtchen: ok19:48
tarmathdtchen: restarting firefox..19:48

tarmathdtchen: i had to create the file there wasn't anything in it before19:51
leo_rockwayKDesk: the problem has nothing to do with acpi in this case, because acpi just calls the xset dpms command19:51

tarmathdtchen: nope... in fact I am back at the starting point before I tried to solve it with pulseaudio...19:56

dtchentarmath: ok. please open a Konsole and tell me if sound is audible with `speaker-test -c2'19:57
dtchentarmath: you can stop speaker-test by interrupting it (ctrl+c)19:57

surgyi just instyalled a printer and kubuntu found the driver, its and epson stylus 4450 with a flatbed scanenr made on. what software can i use to scan images?23:16
wesley_i wonder why my usb boot gives boot errors23:17
leo_rockwaysurgy: xsane23:19
leo_rockwaysurgy: kooka (it's KDE3)23:19
surgyi  have kooka23:20
surgyand when i try to "select scan device" it does absolutely nothing23:20
surgyand xsane doesnt pick anything up at all...23:20
leo_rockwaythen drivers for the scanner are not installed23:21
Tinasonkde 4.2 is released tomorrow. how long b4 it hits repositories?23:22
surgyumm then how do i set up the drivers for the scanner? and why would there be different drivers for ther printer and scanner?23:22
aeonorisI can't find a (windows) driver for my wireless card, because I can't figure out what card it IS (it doesn't have any company brands on it).  So now, since Kubuntu's internet works, I'm trying to find out a way to tell what the card is with Kubuntu.  Is there one?23:23
surgyok well this is incredibly gay, why would there be a printer driver and no scanner driver for a scanner/printer....23:24
aeonorisPerhaps it's a generic printer driver that doesn't have scanner support...?23:25
surgykubuntu reported that it found the driver for the "Epson Stylus CX4450" which is exactly what my printer says on the top23:25
surgyyeah fuck this23:28
surgylooks like micro soft wins again23:28
surgythnx guys23:28
oobesurgy, try running xsane with sudo23:28
leo_rockwayaeonoris: lspci23:28
surgyoobe: no luck23:28
surgyand i needed the scanner ten minutes ago23:29
oobethat guy was a doofus23:29
aeonorisleo_rockway, thanks a lot!  I was trying to figure out this card for over an hour...23:29
leo_rockwayoobe: yeah, I won't waste my time helping people like him23:30
leo_rockwayaeonoris: ls is a *nix command that lists23:30
leo_rockwayaeonoris: so you have ls (which is like DOS' dir) and then you have lsusb, lspci, lshw, lsmod, etc23:31
aeonorisleo_rockway, nice trick, I'll remember it, thanks.23:32
