herrowim really new to ubuntu, i just got it two days ago so im sorry i dont know much.00:00
EagleScreenjoshjtl: I dont know, look for it in kde-apps web00:00
Dragnslcrherrow- how did you manage to delete your account?00:00
EagleScreenherrow do you know what is sudo?00:01
EagleScreen!sudo | herrow00:01
ubottuherrow: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE)00:01
EagleScreenuse Kuser application in Applications -> System to create users and add it to admin group if you want00:02
DragnslcrExcept you have to be a superuser to do that00:03
herrowsee, i bought two computers and my sister logged in on mine before i got to it. so i tried changing the initial user and created mine and deleted the initial user and took admin settings off. but i guess mine never got created andd i only deleted the admin00:03
DragnslcrThat'll do it00:03
DragnslcrYeah, never delete the old user until you're sure that the new user is working correctly00:04
herrowyep, learned that the hard way. So, i think ill just have to reinstall the operting system, right?00:04
DragnslcrThat's all I can think of, unless you want to try to find some security exploit that you can use00:06
demmondamn i cant install .deb they are cruching all the time00:06
demmondont know what to do00:07
EagleScreenherrow you dont need to reinstall00:08
EagleScreenyou only need root access00:08
EagleScreenand create a user for your sister and another one for you00:08
DragnslcrExcept the only user in the admin group got deleted00:08
EagleScreenit can become root if its grub has password in blank (no password)00:09
DragnslcrOh yeah, you can boot into single-user mode00:09
DragnslcrI keep forgetting about Ubuntu's recovery mode00:10
EagleScreenhe can try it, may be he will access in root mode00:10
DragnslcrYeah, that'll work fine00:10
DragnslcrBlah, sorry about that. Forgot about single-user mode00:11
EagleScreenthen he can set root password by command 'passwd'00:11
EagleScreenand become root in a normal session00:11
DragnslcrWell, I wouldn't do that00:11
Dragnslcrherrow- are you on that computer right now?00:11
EagleScreenI think herrow is watching TV lol00:12

joshjtlanyone know what msgfmt is?00:13
DragnslcrAnd that's why I never use pronouns00:13
Dragnslcrherrow- do you have another computer with Internet access?00:13
bobosohow do i find out what driver ubuntu is using to make my network card work?00:13
herrowits alright! yep, i have another ubuntu right next to me00:13
EagleScreenboboso:  are you talking about wireless card?00:14
joshjtlnevermind found it00:14
Dragnslcrherrow- probably easier to get onto IRC from there, then we can walk you through adding a new user from the shell00:14
bobosoEagleScreen: no my wired nic00:14
EagleScreenboboso: did you check jockey application?00:15
EagleScreenI mena Restricted drivers or Hardware drivers application00:15
EagleScreenit os only to know if it is a rectricted driver00:15
bobosoEagleScreen: no i didnt not sure what that is00:15
EagleScreenit is important00:15
EagleScreenboboso: whar Kubuntu version are u using?00:16
EagleScreenthen run Aplications -> System -> Hardware Drivers00:16
herrow1okay, im on the other computer00:16
EagleScreenand check if your card is using a restricted driver00:16
Freddy2which dvd-burner will be included in jaunty? k3b?00:16
EagleScreenherrow1: reboot into recovery mode00:17
Freddy2afaik it hasn't been ported to kde4, so..00:17
Dragnslcrherrow1- reboot the computer, and when you get to the grub menu, select the recovery mode option00:17
DragnslcrFreddy2- I think k3b worked fine for me the last time I tried it00:17
bobosoEagleScreen: ok it says nvidia driver version 17700:18
EagleScreenanything else?00:18
Freddy2hmm then all qt3/dcop/.. stuff is also included? even amarok1?00:18
DragnslcrFreddy2- yeah, KDE3 programs run fine in KDE400:18
EagleScreenk3b (KDE3 version) and amarok 2 (kde4 version)00:19
bobosoEagleScreen: just says i need the driver for desktop effects and stuff like that00:19
EagleScreenthat is the driver of your graphics card00:19
EagleScreennot network00:19
bobosoi know00:20
Dragnslcrboboso- a wired network adapter can usually just use the generic drivers00:20
bobosobut i dont see anything for network00:20
EagleScreendo you want to use that card in other GNU/Linux distribution?00:20
bobosoyes i have the same mobo on another box and when i do an ifconfig i only see the lo interface so i am trying to get my network card installed00:21
herrow1is it normal for the screen to say MBR 2FA: and its said that for about 2 min now00:21
demmonhelp my kubuntu is broken i cant install .deb00:21
Dragnslcrherrow1- after you selected the recovery mode?00:22
EagleScreendemmon try 'sudo dpkg --configure -a'00:22
herrow1no i havent even gotten to that menu yet00:22
Dragnslcrherrow1- hm, that's probably not good00:22
EagleScreenherrow1:  reboot again your conputer may hang00:22
herrow1how do i do that? since its not letting me to anytthing.00:23
bobosoEagleScreen: my thinking was that since kubuntu got my nic working out of the box i could find out what i need to make the other box work00:23
EagleScreenboboso:  if your card not use restricted drivers, other distributions probably has also the driver00:23
EagleScreenboboso: do you have a cofoguration problem or a driver problem?00:24
bobosonot sure00:24
bobosoi guess a driver problem since i only see the lo interface but im nto sure00:24
demmondpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe) EagleScreen00:24
Dragnslcrherrow1- ctrl-alt-del or press the reset button on the computer00:24
EagleScreenwhich is the other distribution boboso?00:25
Dragnslcrboboso- what about ifconfig -a?00:25
EagleScreenboboso: where are you looking for your net interface?00:25
PollywogI installed Jaunty and Gnome works but KDE stalls and never really appears00:25
PollywogI have both desktops installed, kubuntu and the ubuntu desktop00:26
EagleScreenPollywog: bad user configuration files may cause that problem00:26
PollywogEagleScreen: same result after I removed ~/.kde00:26
bobosoDragnslcr:  ifconfig -a shows my eth0 but it has no ip to it so maybe i just need to config dhcp00:27
EagleScreenPollywog: did you test it with other user?00:27
PollywogEagleScreen: ty I will make another user00:27
Dragnslcrboboso- yeah, you just need to configure it00:27
herrow1alright, so the first screen said 2 for setup, right. and 0 for boot.. i pressed 0 and it didnt do anyrhing, just continued with the log in screeen. so instead i pressed 2 for setup. is that wrong?00:28
demmondamn i forgot the command gedit it was00:28
EagleScreendemmon: paste us your error in pastebin please00:28
Dragnslcrherrow1- is this a computer that you bought with Ubuntu installed on it?00:28
EagleScreenherrow1: that screen is strange for us00:29
herrow1theres an option that says network boot?00:29
GiantTalkingCowPardon me, do any of you know the last available version of Kubuntu that used the KDE 3.x branch?00:29
EagleScreendid you choose Ubuntu Recovery mode?00:29
demmonEagleScreen: http://pastebin.com/m45e2642c00:29
EagleScreenherrow1: you may be wrong and going to BIOS or boot menu?00:30
Dragnslcrherrow1- it probably has a grub delay set to 0. Try the instructions in the 5th post here- http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1024680.html00:30

tess_84i tried to restart my laptop this morning after updates and now it wont go past the setup right at the beginning, can anyone pls help me?01:39
ubottuUsually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.01:40
skarnthanks EagleScreen, bug reported correctly,01:42
g_which is the most developed and probably the better suited virtual machine for people who like to test out different distrobutions of linux?01:42
g_with the lowest hardware footprint01:42
g_what no b/s half assed smart ass commands for answer to those questions?01:46
EagleScreenwell done skarn01:46
skarng_ i use virtualbox, and think it' probably the easiest one,01:47
skarnbut I guess it depends on what you mean by "low hardware fottprint"01:48

kingbillyi was even able to play age of empires II surprisingly smooth, but like skarn says without definine "low hardware footprint"...01:50
g_virtualbox is sun's software right?01:51
kingbillyat least 2 of us had good results01:51
skarnvirtualbox Open Souce Edition is in the repos01:51
g_oh ok01:51
g_does it boot up into its own environment?01:51
skarnthere is a proprietary version, with barely any difference01:51
skarnno, it runs in a window, but can be maximised, i said it was really easy01:52
g_is xen any good?01:53
g_or kvm?01:53
tess_84kingbilly that wont work for me.  it gets as far as auto detecting usb mass storage devices and wont go any  further. is that as far as it went for u?01:55
kingbillytess_84 do you have any usb devices plugged in?01:55
kingbillyi have to unplug my external soundcard just to boot01:56
tess_84no i dont01:56
kingbillydoes this occur before the grub?01:57
tess_84sorry, i have no idea what the grub is.  i generally leave all this to my huband but he i away atm01:58
kingbillyokay well it is possible you may have to go into the bios and disable "boot from usb"02:00

frogonwheelsaga: either it doesn't exist, or you didn't use sudo ?06:26

dennisterdid you take a look at the url for pastebin?06:26
agai did use sudo, and it exists,.. just says unble to open device06:26
frogonwheelsaga: check /var/log/kern.log ?06:27
dennisterif you have lots of lines that you want helpers here to see, paste them into pastebin, and then only paste the url for your completed pastebin here06:27
agalast entries are fromyesterday evening frogonwheels06:28
rggyes...i saw..but i didn't know thaat yet06:28
rggby the way thanks a lot...06:28
dennisteryes, using pastebin and this support channel is new to newbies, but important skill to learn06:28
frogonwheelsaga: hmm..  is anything from either of those disks mounted? (not that it should matter)06:29
dennisterrgg: do you understand? flooding this channel with tons of lines can get you kicked out :-)06:29
rggyes i agree w/ you06:29
agait is the main device frogonwheels  i need to make a partition from some unallocated space06:29
dennisterwonderful...so you learned 2 things tonight06:30
agai could use gparted but i like to use fdisk cause it's faster06:30
rggyep lol06:30
agawhen i write sudo fdisk /dev/hda says unable to open device and i am starting to wonder why06:30
frogonwheelsaga and gparted opens it?06:30
agadunno sec06:30
frogonwheelsaga:  is it in the  fdisk -l    list ?06:31
aganope, the first is /dev/sda1 but that's just the first partition06:32
agait has never appeared i just need to open the whole device06:32
rggdennister: do you know why when i'm whatching videos on youtube, if i maximize it it runs slowly...but when i whatch videos w/ kaffeine for exemple it's okay?06:33
agahow to unlock apt? i had a little issue...06:34
dennisterrgg: no i don't I'm afraid...could be a number of things06:36
dennisteraga: sudo apt-get install -f06:36
agaanother process is using it06:37
agabut i cannot kill it dennister06:37
rggflash player can be?06:37
dennisteraga: do you have adept, synaptic, or update manager running? if you do, close it06:37
aganope nothing06:37
agathere is an apt-get process when i go to top but i cannot kill it06:38
dennisteraga: i know it's the lazy-winblows way, but rebooting would probably take care of it06:38
agayeah was thinking about it06:39
dennisterrgg: why is it important for you to have a youtube video maximized?06:40
dennisteri mean, i download some youtube videos to my hard drive, but find that if I maximize them they lose most of their video quality anyway06:41
rggno..i don't just a doubt...06:41

ForgeAushow do I get it to do what I want it to do instead of what it wants to do first?06:43
dennisterForgeAus: if you're having a prob with apt-get, wouldn't you want to fix it first, before moving on?06:43
|ikeNoOtherhi :)06:44
ForgeAusdennister, apt-get itself is working, its packages that are the problem...06:44
simmonsHEY WHATS UP BABY06:44
simmonsO SHI- WRONG CHAT06:44
FirefisheI just installed 8.10, and am having problems with my x session recognizing my mouse and keyboard (both usb).  I'm also getting a startup error indicating that hal isn't starting, and a warning to check that dbus is running.  dbus error references a file: /var/lib/machine-id, and says it should be a UUID string of some type instead of 0.06:44
=== simmons is now known as frozenbacon
ForgeAusas in if I type apt-get remove kpresenter-data it won't let me...06:45
|ikeNoOtherhow can I have the graficall kubuntu loading bar back? (I mean when my computer boots to kubuntu)06:45
frozenbaconanyone know how I can get my 360 to work with ubuntu06:45
|ikeNoOthergraphical* :D06:45
ForgeAusbecause there is an unmet dependancy for koffice (kpresenter-kde4)06:45
frozenbaconit won't find my computer, Im sure I'm just missing something stupid06:45
ForgeAusfrozen good question, I have no clue06:45
ForgeAusfrozen I guess 360 uses samba06:46
dennisterForgeAus: try: sudo apt-get install -f06:46
ForgeAustry to look for it with a samba client?...06:46
dennisterthat might just take care of the dependency problem06:46
ForgeAusdennister, then it tries to install kpresenter-kde4 which doesn't work06:46
ForgeAusbecause I need to remove kpresenter-data for that to work (since theres a file in it it says its overwriting - nothing more integral than a pixmap, but it trips up the package for some reason)06:47
ForgeAusI tried even manually deleting the file but it didn't help06:47
dennisterit's probably in your cache, so let's try to clear the cache06:47
ForgeAusif apt-get would just listen to me when I said apt-get remove kpresenter-data it might have worked06:47
ForgeAusuh, ok clear the cache? apt-get clean first?06:47
ForgeAuswhat cache are you talking about exactly?06:48
ForgeAus(package cache in apt as in /var/cache/apt where it copies the .deb's too?)06:49
ForgeAusor some other cache?06:49
dennisterwell, apt has a cache of programs  it's installed or trying to install...yes06:49
ForgeAusyeah well thats not going to help06:49
ForgeAusthe downloads aren't corrupt or anything06:49
dennisterin terminal, type or paste: sudo ls /var/cache/apt/archives/partial06:50
ForgeAusnothing in partial06:50
dennisterdoes it come back with a list of files?06:50
ForgeAusthere are archives to install .deb packages but they're all complete06:50
dennisterok...i'm a bit too rusty with this technique of fixing dependency probs...hold on06:51
ForgeAusif I apt-get clean it will remove them but I have to re-download them anyway, and I'll be back to where I am now, so theres no point06:51
ForgeAus(other than wasting some bandwidth)06:51

rgarciaused to work bu now no sound06:54
ForgeAushmmm I think I have an idea.. whati f I apt-get remove koffice ? the package itst rying to  meet the dependency of?06:54
agaoook qtparted working fine06:54
dennisteryeah, thanks, but the basics is what i remember off the top of my head; haven't had a problem like yours in a long time, so I can't remember the fix06:54
dennisterForgeAus: that's a good idea06:55
ForgeAusaga, gparted is more ubuntu than kubuntu (being a gnome program)06:55
agai know... i was trying to use fdisk but for some reason it wont let me access the device06:55
agago figures06:55
dennisterhmmm: basic ubuntu 8.04 installation from livecd only took 48 minutes :)06:56
rgarciadoes anybody can help me on this?06:56
dennisterand that's *with* me using the manual method of partitioning06:56
dennistertoo late06:57
agaok it worked this time06:57
ForgeAusdennister, don't you just hate a good catch22?07:00
ForgeAusawesome aga, :)07:07
clemehay alguien07:07
ForgeAusahh fixed it07:08
ForgeAusremoving koffice-kde4 did it07:08
ForgeAusnow I have to reinstall koffice-kde4 lol07:08
agai dunno what is the problem with fdisk07:09
agaafter a reboot it got into the deviceno problems07:09
ForgeAusnow how to run adept updater?07:09
agawouldnt sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade do the trick ForgeAus?07:09
ForgeAusI'd rather use the GUI but I don't know how to run it without the system tray icon07:10
ForgeAusI can run the installer from the menu... hmm... lets see if that does it07:11
dennisterForgeAus: is there a reason why you prefer koffice to open office?07:12
ForgeAusdennister, prefer? no... I have both07:12
ForgeAusmostly I'm just following koffice's progress, rather than using it so much07:12
dennisterwell, if koffice gave you a problem, I wouldn't try to install it again unless I needed it for some reason07:12
dennisterone office program is usually enough for me07:13
ForgeAushehe one is enough for me too, but I already had koffice...07:13
ForgeAusit was just a problem in upgrading it to the kde4 version07:13
ForgeAus(one of my old kde3 packages messed with it)07:13
dennisterahhh...yes, I tend to stay away from kde4 for my users07:14
ForgeAusdennister, yeah well I'm using kde4 as my primary wm (since I didn't really have the choice to keep kde3 in intrepid)07:14
dennisterthey're usually total newbies, so are more comfortable with the kde 3.5's similarity to winblows07:14
dennisterah, yes, intrepid...no kde 3.507:14
ForgeAuskde3.5.x is my preferred desktop too... still..07:14
dennisteri'm trying to stick with hardy for the newbs07:15
ForgeAusok all fixed07:15
dennisteri tried intrepid on one of my own systems when it first came out, and deleted it real quick, too...probably better now that some maintenance releases have been issued07:15
ForgeAusakk gwenview/kde4 bindings removes digikam... hmmm07:16
ForgeAusoddly dennister, most stuff there isn't kde4 stuff for, still runs as kde3 for me, but thats becuase I upgraded so much of kde3 is still there...07:17
ForgeAusexcept the one thing I miss the most, kcontrol07:17
dennisteralthough i should get off my butt and redo my dual core system with the 64 arch ...willing to give it a shot again now that 64-bit flash is finally available......but my inventory system is on it :(07:18
ForgeAus(everything else that is replaced works as the replaced version by default...07:18
ForgeAusI don't think I was actually intended to upgrade intrepid, as opposed to install it from scratch...07:18
ForgeAusits an odd situation I'm in... has its eccentricities...07:19
ForgeAusbut for the most part everything works and I'm fairly happy with it07:19
agai am going to have to reinstall today i think07:20
agathere's something borked here07:20
dennisterForgeAus: as long as you're happy :-)07:22
dennisteraga: yes, sometimes a reinstall takes less time than trying to fix the issues07:22
agai normally prefer to fix them tho07:23
agabut i have spent all sunday fighting with this and i'm starting to have enough07:23
dennisteri can't believe i did a full ubuntu install in less than an hour...with livecd and manual partitioning scheme07:23
ForgeAusdennister, I do :)07:23
aga8.04 was real quick to install07:24
ForgeAusubuntu isn't always painful07:24
agaor ubuntu in general i dunno07:24
ForgeAusin fact its painless in many aspects07:24
agakubuntu takes me longer always07:24
dennisteri'm used to using the mini.iso or the alternate install cd, to avoid all the updates...but I seem to remember it ends up taking longer with those methods07:24

wizkoderI tried kvm first. But gave me errors. So I tries virtualbox and it just worked. As I do only need it for browser testing performance is not important. So the easiest package wins :-)13:38
rosco_ybut why would you prefer kvm?13:39
tobormakes good sense. Get the job done anyway you can.13:39
toborrosco_y: re:typos - hehe :)13:39
rosco_y(I'm trying to decide what to install--which should I try first?)13:39
wizkoderkvm is not sun. thats why :-)13:39
wizkoderand sun belongs to ibm soon :-(13:39
rosco_ywizkoder: that's sad13:40

rosco_yso does that mean I should be worried about my choice to use mysql?13:40
wizkoderno they don't. the just dance on all weddings....13:40
toborActionParsnip: only true for a very small part of IBM.  People I know who work at IBM say that the company is like Europe in the middle ages, may small kingdoms, ofetn at war witrh each other.13:41
toborActionParsnip: to determine what IBM really wants you have to look deep into their annual report and see what directions their revenue is trending in and match that up with their hiring numbers.  up with13:42

wizkoderAnd this stuff compared to linux is just giving me the creeps nowadays .-)13:45
rosco_yis vbox = VirtualBox?13:46
ActionParsnipyah, im just lazy13:46
rosco_ythat's okay--I'm just trying to figure this out.13:46

toborreagleBRKLN: where are you creating this "shortcut" ?13:49
reagleBRKLNtobor: konq/settings/config shortcuts13:49

reagleBRKLNIt's the Konqeuror menu bar: Settings/Configure Shortcuts13:51
almoxtem algum servidor para o Amarok???13:51
toborreagleBRKLN: OK, when I go to konq the "configure shortcust" seems to be dealing with creating alternative key-sequence that do stuff13:52
reagleBRKLNyes, and i want a shortcut to go to homepage13:52
toborreagleBRKLN: go to home page means you want a new tab opened on your default broswer page?13:53
reagleBRKLNno, i want current tab to go to home page13:53
toborreagleBRKLN: or you want the current tab to move to your default page?13:53
reagleBRKLNmuch like alt-tab does now13:53
toborheh OK.13:53
reagleBRKLNi mean alt-home13:53
toborreagleBRKLN: I'm on konq 3.3.1 - I dont see any shortcut for moving the current tag to the home page.  There is a ctrl-home, but that open the home directory13:56
toborreagleBRKLN: and i dont see any option for adding new shorcuts to konq, although my konq is old.13:57
reagleBRKLNtobor: i had it working in 3.5... it's not new, i just want my alternative 'ctrl-g' to do the same thing alt-home does13:57
toborreagleBRKLN: 3.5 is newer than mine.13:57
ActionParsniptobor: you need a license for windows if you are using windows, open OSes are free to install as you see fit under the GPL13:59
toborActionParsnip: I meant the license on vbox. Is it GPL?13:59

agaok... i am a bit worried... linux-headers-2.6.27-11 linux-headers-2.6.27-7 linux-headers-2.6.27-7-generic linux-headers-2.6.27-11-generic18:40
agais it safe to remove that?18:40
twisted_ghiya aga, i got the same issue18:41
twisted_g2.6.24 though18:41
twisted_gwith 2.6.27 installed, just not making much sense how it shows though18:41
pawelbialplease type uname -a18:41
draik_twisted_g: I want more than alphanumeric18:41
agai am just wondering why apt said that those packages are not needed anymore...18:42
twisted_gdraik_: then you're gonna have to write one18:42
agaLinux alba 2.6.27-14-generic #1 SMP Fri Mar 13 18:00:20 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux18:42
twisted_gdraik_: follow PhilRod 's advice18:42
agaaaaa now i see pawelbial... my kernel is newer than that right?18:42
twisted_gdraik_: nice bash script, play around with it... bash is fun18:42
pawelbialaga as you can see you are using newer that what is proposal to remove so you can safely remove that18:43
agaright :D thanks a bunch18:43
agai just panicked, lately all oddities are happening to me18:44
agaand now... another question, my partition tables are not in order... if i put them in order, i will move swap, but i won't move root... might that mean any issue for grub and booting??18:46
draik_twisted_g: That's actually what I want :)18:47
pawelbialaga: in this case it might make some issue for grub and booting - if number of partiotion change ubuntu won't but18:49
pawelbialbut it is not hard to fix18:49
agaproblem is that /swap is on /dev/sda6 and i have another partition on /dev/sda718:50
pawelbialeven in grub menu18:50
agaroot wouldn't change tho, only those 2... and i am anything but skilled with grub18:50
DragnslcrThe partition order doesn't really matter18:50
DragnslcrUnless you have some very specific reason to try to move partitions around, I wouldn't bother18:51
=== PolNEU is now known as PolitikerNEU
agait's not life or death, it's just that i know the order is not the correct and bothers me a bit... dunno like some kind of uneasiness18:51
agabut if this is gonna lead me to some kernel panic or weird grub errors i can very well leave it as it is18:51
shock_day13complicated problem guys?18:53
DragnslcrThe order not being "correct" is definitely not a good enough reason to try to move them18:53
twisted_ghow safe is it to remove packages marked as "obsolete" in aptitude. specifically, it is linux-image-2.6.24-22-generic. i have the linux-generic meta-package installed, showing 2.6.27. safe to remove?18:53
DragnslcrYou shouldn't ever really need to address partitions through /dev anyway18:53
Unksitwisted_g: should be safe to remove if the newer kernel works fine18:54
Dragnslcrtwisted_g- you can, but it doesn't hurt anything to have it18:54
twisted_gUnksi: thanks18:54
Unksiyoure welcome18:54
twisted_gDragnslcr: freeing up space and trying to clean up this thing so it stops nagging me about autoremove packages (still trying to figure this out)18:54
DragnslcrThe kernel images don't take up much space, so that shouldn't be an issue18:55
Unksitwisted_g: using sudo apt-get autoremove will remove them, be careful if theres something you need, though18:55
DragnslcrThe autoremove nag, I don't know18:55
OceanwatcherWish there were something like this for KDE: http://www.conduit-project.org/18:56
twisted_gUnksi: my problem is that kubuntu flags the arbest things for autoremoval. eg, i'll install something like k9copy, which auto installs faac (as a dependency) for example, and then afterwards, apt wants to autoremove faac18:57
twisted_gi just can't figure it out18:57
Unksijust leave it as is then :)18:57
twisted_gUnksi: i'm cursed with the nagging habit of needing to know why :-P18:58
agatsk tsk tsk.. that is a baaaaaaaaaaaad habit twisted_g18:58
Unksino idea why it would do that, i havent seen that sort of behaviour so far with autoremove18:58
Unksiaga: right habit as long as you dont break your system just before you really need it ;p18:59
twisted_gUnksi: i picked it up firstly with kde meta-packages... couldn't understand why some of my software was being removed when i installed a package.. but apt does it for more than just kde-meta packages18:59
twisted_gaga: its an annoying habit yet18:59

Unksiaga: yes, but when you really need to get something done its the worst possible time for that :p19:00
twisted_git kills cats no?19:00
Unksitwisted_g: hmm, do you have any unofficial repositories enabled?19:00
twisted_gUnksi: have you ever used aptitude?19:00
twisted_gUnksi: I needed a statistical package named R. other than that, no19:01
Unksitwisted_g: yes, and i have come to the conclusion that apt-get works better19:01
aganow i am trying to find out why links won't write download a file where i am telling it to19:01

Unksitwisted_g: do you use both aptitude and apt-get?19:03
twisted_gbeen using adept_manager to date, which was autoremoving "silently". so then moved to apt-* from command line, and at least I can see what its doing (or trying to do now). i just started playing with aptitude19:04

DexterF kdm comes up at 1600x1200@85Hz as supposed to (CRT). Once I gave login creds it goes to 1600x1200@50Hz. kcontrol: only lets me chose 50-56 Hz. when I go sysadmin mode and change the monitor type *again* it lets me chose 85 but at next restart its 50 again. hitting ctrl-alt-+ makes it enter @85 but its bloody annoying. what happens here? I messed with the Xserver but put the old xorg.conf back in place, where lese is defined at22:20

astrobearcan someone help me get java to display jars?22:35
astrobeari can see the windows, but there are no contents22:35
astrobearjava -jar file.jar = blank window22:36
astrobeari can see the title of the window22:36
astrobearthat's it22:36
astrobeari've asked in ##java and they said not to ask about applets, and so far no one has responded in #linux22:36
astrobeareven the 1.6 jar from java.com does the same thing22:37
astrobeari have the latest driver from nvidia22:38
nahazCan anyone say why that my usb mouse and keyboard stop working after i startx22:40
nahazI just compiled a new kernel 2.6.29 and it dont work but it still works in generic22:41
nahazAnd where is the configuration for mouse and keyboard ? xorg.conf not handling that anymore?22:43
nahaz328 user and noone have a clue? Better turn to a debian channel22:44
tsimpsonnahaz: if you're using a custom kernel, try asking in ##linux22:44
tsimpsonwe can't possibly support your custom kernels22:45
nahazya but I wonder what file is handling the mouse now?22:45
tsimpsonno file, Xorg dynamically detects it at runtime22:46
tsimpsonas long as the kernel sees it22:46
nahazThe keybord works in tty22:47
nahazand I can use the mouse 2-3 sek before kde4 boot is finished22:48
nahazAnd a dmesg shows that I have mouse and keyboard22:48
tsimpsonthen it's some issue with X, try looking in /var/log/Xorg.0.log22:49
nahazYes but original there is no configuration for nither mouse or keyboard in x22:50
tsimpsonif the only change is the kernel, then it's some interaction with Xorg and the kernel22:51
nahazMy xorg.conf only hold the configuration for nvidia22:51
nahazBut I have my suspission that hal take care of the usb and keyboard22:53
tsimpsonhal is just an abstraction layer22:53
=== compilerwriter_ is now known as compilerwriter
tsimpsonon top of the kernel, and it's still up to Xorg to look for and use the device properly22:54
nahazOk but were do you configure mouse and keyboard22:54
tsimpsonsame place as always afaik22:54
nahazHow can my mouse and keybord work when there is no input device for mouse ?22:55
tsimpson-> Xorg dynamically detects it at runtime22:55
tsimpsonxorg.conf is used for things X can not detect or custom options22:56
nahazok thanks22:57
nahaztry to change the xorg.conf then22:57
