geniidinner is just called here, sorta AFK while eating00:01
wirechiefbye genii00:01
wirechiefwell i gotta go make a casper-cow00:02
lun4tichow can i change the menu which the "live stick" is showing?00:04
ActionParsniplun4tic: which menu do you mean?00:06
lun4ticthe one with the language selection00:06
AizawaIs there a way to install kde 4.3? I've been looking for some time now.. SVN or something, I dunno00:07
drbobbhey, it's highly cool that someone's making a kde3.5 remix of jaunty00:07
lun4ticno matter i guess00:08
lun4ticmore important is changing the open textmode terminals to zero00:09
lun4ticand removing the eject disk from the reboot/shutdown00:09
lun4tici guess the open terminals are because jaunty is still beta and are open for bugtracking or sth00:10
drbobber, what about the terminals00:10
lun4ticif i shutdown kubuntu live there are some terminals open00:11
drbobbare u talking about virtual consoles?00:11
lun4ticand i am promted if they should be closed00:11
lun4tictextmode logins00:11
lun4tictty something00:11
drbobblogins on vc's then00:11
lun4tickdm promts that they are still open00:11
drbobbok i get it00:12
drbobbanyway i'd be interested in hearing about the experience from anyone who tried the kde3 jaunty remix00:13
drbobbcause i'd really like to move ahead from hardy but i can't stomach kde400:14
hallownamedrbobb: kde4 is the greatest thing ever. trunk anyway. dunno bout ur debs. kde3 is the same old kde3 :)00:16
rysiek|plguys, anybody knows if it's possible to use Xinerama and XComposite together, so that kwin effects in kde4 work?00:16
drbobbhallowname: ok, and that's exactly what i want it to be for the time being00:17
drbobbmy question is how well is it integrated into jaunty00:18
rysiek|pldrbobb: officially - not at all00:20
rysiek|pldrbobb: Kubuntu moved to kde4 with 8.1000:20
geniidrbobb: Why not just download and install the iso onto a test partition? http://apt.pearsoncomputing.net/cdimages/  I think is where the kde3 8.10 and 9.04 are00:20
drbobbrysiek|pl: i'm talking about the most recent announcement on kubuntu.org00:20
rysiek|pldrbobb: oh, I missed that, hold on a sec ;)00:21
geniiThey are hackable but problemmatic is what the current dev working on it tells me00:24
geniioops wrong channel00:24
rysiek|pldrbobb: very interesting00:26
rysiek|pldrbobb: I think you will have to test it for yourself00:26
drbobbi'd call it great news provided it has no serious regressions wrt. hardy00:27
lun4tickde4 without effects doesn't ... "work"00:29
lun4ticfor me at least :D00:29
lun4ticif you want absolutely no effects, don't usw kde4 :D00:29
lun4ticthe live cd of the beta still feels "incomplete"00:30
lun4ticor "not perfectly integrated"00:30
lun4ticbut the installed kde4 is good00:30
lun4ticif you have 3d drivers running :)00:30
lun4ticjaunty kubuntu live cd is awfully buggy i think00:31
ActionParsniplun4tic: why its got some nice config apps00:31
lun4ticso after install don't forget to upgrade :D00:31
lun4tictalking about the live cd00:31
ActionParsnipkd4 + no effects = performance00:31
lun4ticthe installed version after upgrading a whole lot of bugs are fixed00:32
lun4ticnot really00:32
lun4tickde never was about performance :D00:32
ActionParsnipsure it is, the effects dont have to be calculated so it saves cpu time00:32
lun4ticit was about easy to use and fancy desktop :)00:33
drbobbmy laptop can't do effects anyway, it has a sis graphics chip00:33
ActionParsniplun4tic: go say that in n#kde, see how long you can last00:33
lun4ticbut it's actually true in my opinion :)00:33
drbobband that's just one of the reasons why i want to keep kde3 on it for the near future00:34
lun4ticthere are versions that are more performant than others00:34
showersHow can I log on as root to get my admin privileges back?00:34
lun4ticbut among the desktops i wouldn't say kde has come up with extraordanary performance00:34
lun4ticshowers: sudo doesn't work?00:35
dwidmann:\ launchpad doesn't wanna load00:35
ActionParsnipkde is about performance too, although it is leaning towards gloss, any DE / WM is as glossy as yu like it00:35
showerslun4tic: not without a admin password00:35
lun4ticbut kde doesn't need a lot of work for gloss :D00:35
lun4ticso it's somehow "gloss for the lazy people" ;)00:36
=== ubuntu is now known as WIndMaker
lun4ticnormally you gotta give ur USER password00:36
lun4ticfor sudo00:36
lun4ticat least by default00:36
lun4ticdunno what you changed00:36
ActionParsnipshowers: if you run groups you will see which groups the user is a member of00:37
ActionParsnipshowers: as long as it is in the admin group it can use sudo00:37
lun4ticso if you wanna be root in ubuntu00:38
lun4ticusw "sudo su"00:38
showersthat's exactly the message i get 'not part of sudo users' or something close to that00:38
lun4ticand give your user password00:38
showersTried sudo su00:38
showersi think i have to get in from the recovery mode maybe?00:39
lun4ticdud you delete the user that was first created with the installation?00:39
ActionParsnipshowers: use   sudo -i00:39
lun4ticcause new users are not in the admin group by default00:39
ActionParsnipshowers: sudo su is incorrect and doesnt configure the environment correctly00:39
showersno, but i took away his admin and gave it to someone else00:39
ActionParsnipshowers: yu can have multiple admin users00:40
lun4ticthen logon as someone else and give admin rights back :D00:40
showerslemme try sudo -i00:40
ActionParsnipshowers: if you have no other admin users you will need to log on to recovery root console and modify the user groupings00:40
showersit returns '00:41
showersnot in sudoers file00:41
ActionParsnipshowers: then reboot, press esc to show grub and select recovery mode then choose root console00:41
showersActionParsnip: that's what i thought, but how exactly00:42
ActionParsnipshowers: then you need to add a user to the admin group00:42
ubottuTo add new users to your Ubuntu system, follow the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddUsersHowto - For administrative privileges, users need to be made members of the group "admin" - See !sudo00:42
ubottusudo 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)00:42
showersActionParsnip: Yes, i need to log on to recovery root console.00:47
showersthen add a new user with admin privs. but how to do that?00:48
showersI can get into recovery no problem00:48
showersit's just the magic words once there...00:48
PollywogI have kubuntu (Jaunty) installed but KDE does not start up, only Gnome works...   How do I get the remix version of kubuntu installed without doing a complete install?  Can I just modify apt sources to install the remix version of KDE?00:49
Dragnslcrshowers- probably want adduser00:49
ActionParsnipshowers: adduser <new user>00:49
PollywogIt would just be a hassle to do a total reinstall00:49
ActionParsnipsudo adduser <username> admin00:49
ActionParsnipPollywog: have you tried renaming ~/.de00:49
showersYeah? okay, like 'adduser joe admin'00:50
ActionParsnipPollywog: and rebooting00:50
PollywogActionParsnip: yes I did that00:50
ActionParsnipshowers: looks good00:50
PollywogI am sure that for some reason, KDE 4.2 will not run on this computer, but KDE 3.5 did00:51
showers'adduser joe admin' at the command prompt in recovery mode?00:51
Pollywogso I want to try the new remix version00:51
ActionParsnipshowers: sounds good00:51

draik_How can I find the filesystem on a computer? I want to know if I setup Ext 2 or 301:35
geniiIf the filesystem is mounted, the :  mount                        command will usually say01:35
draik_It's on the actual HDD01:36
dwidmannand if it's not mounted, sudo parted /dev/something print01:36
draik_I'm running that HDD on the laptop01:39
ActionParsnipdraik_: sudo fdisk -l01:42
draik_I purchased an Acer Aspire One (netbook) and am currently installing Kubuntu on 140GB of the 160GB HDD. That is going to be Ext3. 2GB are going to swap. The other 8GB is for another Linux-based OS and want to find the fs.01:44
ActionParsnipdraik_: fdisk will tell you01:44
draik_ActionParsnip: I just ran that on this laptop and it doesn't mention Ext301:44
ActionParsnipdraik_: can you pastebin the output01:44
ubottupastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (be sure to give the URL of your paste - see also the #kubuntu channel topic)01:44
draik_ActionParsnip: http://paste.ubuntu.com/148687/01:47
ActionParsnipdraik_: try the mount command01:49
geniiIf you use logdump feature of debugfs and no result, it's ext201:49

draik_Johnny, tell him what he's won!01:53
ign0ramusmy bad dude.01:53
draik_(not my new netbook, that's what!)01:53
ign0ramusi've got problems, too...01:53
draik_ign0ramus: It's been a while. How you been?01:53
ign0ramusGreat, until I just messed up my entire music library :(01:53
draik_ActionParsnip: It is just labeled as 'Extended"01:53
draik_ign0ramus: How did that happen? (not as bad as my entire Ext3 Kubuntu partition being wiped from not double- or triple-checking the install01:54
ActionParsnipdraik_: then you havent set any logical partitions on it, or they would show up01:54
ign0ramusdraik_: ouch.  ok here's the dilemma (and the resulting challenge)...01:54
draik_ActionParsnip: Sorry, wrong partition. It's reiserfs01:55
ign0ramusdraik_: I had just ripped a lot of new music to my library, and wanted to organize things a bit.  Amarok does a nice job of categorizing all music files into neat folders, alphabetically...01:55
ign0ramusdraik_: So somehow this time, I must have set it to rename all my music files *without* their extension.  Now Amarok will not import any of them, and will not play them until I add the extension to the end of the filename.01:56
ign0ramusdraik_: I'm not manually renaming 7k tracks... there's got to be a way, right?01:57
draik_ign0ramus: EASY! There's an app within the repos01:57
ign0ramusdraik_: "There's an app for that".01:57
ign0ramusdraik_: checking it out now...01:57
draik_You can change extensions to MP3, mp3 or even ADD the extension01:58
ign0ramusdraik_: what about the .m3u, .aac, .mp4, etc?  Will it auto-detect filetype, or will I have to name them all with the same extension?01:58
draik_It's not that smart01:59
draik_You will have to spit those out01:59
ign0ramusdraik_: not too bad... I'd say 95% of my collection is in .mp3 anyway, so this will save a *ton* of time.  good lookin' out!01:59
draik_No worries. I know of this because of a MAJOR issue with the naming of images from my digicam and gf's digicam. They had to be in lowercase extensions (go fig) and her digicam set everything in caps, so yeah.02:00
draik_That saved ME on hours of 'right-click, rename, (change to .jpg), enter, next image...'02:01
dave_hello I am having a little trouble getting video working I installed medibuntu02:02
ign0ramusdraik_: importing files to rename now...02:02

dave_Is 9.04 much better than 8.10?02:03
xjjkdave_: with respect to what02:03
dave_over  all getting video working setup etc..02:04
xjjkdave_: what do you mean video... your video driver? what video card do you have02:04
dave_I have Nvidia02:05
draik_xjjk: Are you OK? Your psychic powers seem to be malfunctioning...02:05
xjjkdraik_: eh?02:05
draik_Never mind.02:05
draik_dave_: Your answers and questions are esoteric. We don't know what you have or what the issue (really) is at the moment.02:06
dave_I am having trouble getting youtube videos working I installed medibuntu and it still does not work02:06
draik_dave_: nVidia ___?___02:06
AizawaThis is probably a silly question, but the daily .iso's are fully updated, right? The latest daily is 04/10, so it has all updates until yesterday, right?02:07
dwidmanndave_: medibuntu is just a repository, it isn't a package ... if you want "working youtube videos", install the "flashplugin-nonfree" package02:07
AizawaA lot of "right" in that sentence, but eh.02:07
dave_where would I find that exactly?02:07
draik_dave_: In the repos02:08
ign0ramusdraik_: is there a way to import the contents of entire folders into krename?02:08
draik_ign0ramus: you can't add a directory?02:08
ign0ramusdraik_: doesn't appear that way... lemme try the simple GUI mode...02:08

draik_ign0ramus: It's been a while. Thought that was an option. I guess not. You can just CTRL+A and then 'open' into kRename02:10
dave_I am installing non free02:10
ign0ramusdraik_: OK, I got an entire directory added, but each folder (each artist has their own folder) has mixed files, like album art, etc.  It seems that I would still have to go through each folder manually and rename some files and not others :(02:12
ign0ramusdraik_: Do you think Picard would work?02:12
draik_ign0ramus: I've never used Picard to give you an honest answer. Sorry.02:12
ign0ramusdraik_: ideally, forcing Amarok to accept these files into the library and then batch renaming as I did before would work... don't suppose there's a way to do that, huh?02:13
dave_It's working now I had a mozilla flash swf conflict thanks for your help02:15
draik_ign0ramus: No, I don't think so.02:18
draik_ign0ramus: But you can ask in the amarok channel. They may know.02:18

ActionParsnip!sound | ramon03:46
ubotturamon: If 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 !MP303:46

rachel_daskreech : and if I write plasma in the console everything comes back just the same as before03:47
daskreechrachel_: it came back with no system tray ?03:48
rachel_daskreech : with the system tray just as before, only kmix and battery and updates03:48
ramoni really don't know what happened03:48

daskreechI've been having an issue on Gnome where there is a space allocated for each of the apps but they never actually turn up03:50
daskreechrachel_: Wht happens if you press alt+ctrl+V ?03:50

dwidmannerm, one =03:51
daskreechdwidmann: crap yeah You know what I normally am moving around config files when I do that which is why it works for me03:51

daskreechrachel_: But you don't see klipper in the system tray?03:51
rachel_I closed it03:51
rachel_daskreech : no, I closed it, I don't use klipper03:51
daskreechoh then why does alt+ctrl+V work then ?03:52
daskreechthat's a klipper shortcut03:52
rachel_it works here, not on the desktop03:52

showersWell, it worked!05:42
showersi couldn't log on as admin, so i came here and asked how to do it,05:43
showersSomebody here told me to go to the rescue consol, when you boot up you have that choice05:43
showersand to type in 'adduser <username> admin05:44
showersit didn't work quite as expected, i couldn't create a new user05:44
showersBut I could give admininstrative rights to current users, so i did05:45
showersWorked like a charm, thank you!05:45
showersWhat it did was add <username> to the admin group05:47
showersThen I created a new user, with admin rights, and took the rights away from this user who uses the net05:49
showersNow i feel fairly safe surfing as a user05:49
showersOne tiny detail: as a regular user i can't run the front end for the firewall; firestarter.05:50
showersSo i hope that it is still running in the background somewhere. Would that be right?05:51
agai don't think it will run if you don't invoke it05:52
agabut check the processes on top or ps aux05:52
showersWhat won't run? the actual firewall (itables?) or just the front end? I had the idea the firewall was always on.05:54
agathe frontend05:54
showersPerfect? I don't need the frontend as long as the firewall is on, right?05:55
agaanyway, i think that you need to configure iptables to make it a real properly working firewall05:55
showersAlthough it would be nice to know that it kept the firewall preferences i gave it as an admin?05:56
agaright but you need to configure the rules on iptables if you want it to be effective05:56
agathere was a way to check your actual iptables sec05:56
showersHow so?05:57
agayeah to check the rules05:57
geniiIf you ran firestarter at some point using sudo instead of kdesudo that might explain your not being able to reopen it05:57
aganot sure, i have never digged to much on there05:57
trappistshowers: firestarter is just a frontend for iptables, which doesn't "run", it tells the kernel how to filter traffic.  once the rules are in place, there's nothing to run, the kernel handles it.05:57
trappistsudo iptables-save to look at the current rules05:57
agaoh thank you :D i could have been looking for that half an hour05:58
showersAre the rules the same for all users, or just for the user who sets them up?05:58
showersCan't sudo anything because as a regular user it isn't allowed05:59
trappista regular user is who sudo is made for05:59
trappistas long as he's a sudoer05:59
trappistanyway since the firewall rules are in the kernel, they're not user-specific.  a packet comes into your network interface, and your kernel decides what to do with it based on the firewall rules.06:00
showerstrappist: Thank you! Exactly what I wanted to hear.06:01
trappistit's possible (but not very easy) to make firewall rules that match packets based on the user that owns the process that's sending or receiving the packet, but you'd know if you'd done that06:01
showersSo what do you guys do? Do you run with admin privileges or is it safer (i think so) to run without?06:03
showersAnyway, moving along here, has anyone tried Zim?06:04
showersThat is a great little program06:05
showersI use NoteTab in windows but it doesn't port well to linux and is much harder to use.06:06
showersBut was much better suited for programmers, which I sorta was at one point.06:06
showersI'm looking at Bluefish now06:06

Mamarokeagles0513875: do you mind?09:52
eagles0513875sry Mamarok09:52
ktnealso it looks like adobe has only a 32bit deb09:52
* eagles0513875 goes back to doing what he was doing09:52
Mamarokktne: there is a 64bit installer available normally, but not a *.deb09:52
Mamarokpeaches: everything is available for the average user as a GUI09:55
Mamarokeverything else is not aimed at the user having no sudo rights anyway09:55
Mamarokmatter of security09:55
Mamarokhm, sry, was in a backlog09:56
peachesMamarok: i'm skeptical of that but maybe that could be true but just a difference in degree of availbility vs usefulness (for example the awful kubuntu adept client)09:56
Mamarokwell, that one will have gone in the next release AFAIK09:57
peachesMamarok: though he did click on it and it brought up a GUI, but something is broken if it doesn't ask the password to install09:57
peachesfound the program is called gdebi-kde09:57
Mamarokouch, gdebi-kde?09:58
Mamarokthat sounds like a KDE layer of a GTK app :(09:58
Mamarokplain awfull09:58
Mamarokpeaches: one is not suppose to install a *.deb from Dolphin IMHO...09:59
peachestried to use it to install a deb but it have symbol relocation error that is probably from using outside qt/kde though09:59
Mamarokat least not a plain user who should not install system wide things anyway09:59
peachesMamarok: yeah.. i thought thats what he was going for until the permissions problem09:59
peachesMamarok: oh i assumed he's not just a user10:00
Mamaroklet's see if the bot has something10:00
ubottudeb is the Debian package format, also used by Ubuntu. To install .deb files, simply double-click (in Ubuntu) or click (in Kubuntu) on them to start the GDebi utility.10:00
peachesyou know in a way that's kinda worse that he can't download a deb off the net as a normal user (hypothetically) and just insatll it10:01
peachesfrom a trusted source10:01
Mamarokthat is just plain awfull, starting gdebi in KDE :(10:01
peacheskubuntu is second class10:01
peacheswe gotta live with it10:01
Mamarokwell, that would go against all securty basics of a Linux system10:01
Mamaroksecurity* even10:01
Mamarokthe user should never be allowed to install things unless he has sudo rights10:02
peachesMamarok: not really. he's just going to go get the scripted version for a normal user in that event anyway. my point is that a *deb install won't install optionally to only the user's zone of permission10:03
peachesMamarok: wow that's pretty draconian heh10:03
peacheswell by 'install' i kinda just clump in there 'put a folder on his desktop with an executable file in it somewhere' as "installing" though10:04
Mamarokhm, that's the nature of a *.deb file, it has been packaged to go system wide, else you have to change the patch before making the package10:04
Mamarokat least, the *.deb association in the next release links to kpackagekit10:05
Mamarok"folder on a desktop" sounds so Windows like...10:06
peachesyeah thats what i mean about deb anyway how it's set up in kubuntu.. though he can probably opt for that one app i forget the name that was kde centric, a one-click local user installer for a bunch of apps10:07
peacheskpackageit eh? im going to loko that up.. hope it's good.. and hope you mean jaunty10:07
peachesMamarok: doesn't it sound so mac like?10:07
Mamarokwell, don't know if the usability is better since Alpha5, I very much hope so...10:07
Mamarokcan't tell, never used a Mac :)10:08
MamarokI live pretty much in the Linux world since 199910:08
peachesi'd rather work with folders and desktops than directories and inodes thats just me10:08
peachesa lot has change since 1999 amirite10:09
Mamarokoh yes, my first distro had no working X...10:09
Mamarokluckily I'm in Kubuntu heaven since it's existence10:10
peachesyea i dont remember how long ive used primary OS probably around windblows xp10:10
peacheslinux desktop is pretty amazing these days10:11

rachel_peaches : it starts for a fraction of second then it closes itself10:14
peachesrachel_: all movies or only some?10:15
Mamaroksounds like a codec problem10:16
peachesrachel_: try right cilcking, then open with, and choose another media player10:16
peachesi wonder if that's kaffeine screwing up10:16
peacheswhats the default media player?10:17
BorNDeaDrachel are you talking about dvds or downloaded videos?10:17
bcoelho2000hi everyone!10:19
bcoelho2000bazhang the alternate version of kubuntu worked out great!10:19
rachel_peaches : i have already tried that is not working10:20
peachesrachel_: sure but what specifically is happening when you try other programs?10:21
BorNDeaDrachel, install the gstreamer extra plugins package10:21
peachesBorNDeaD: do you happen to know the default kubuntu media player?10:23
BorNDeaDfor me its dragon10:23
BorNDeaDkde 4.210:23
rachel_BorNDeaD : cannot find the package10:23
BorNDeaDtry "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras10:24
bazhangbcoelho2000, nice10:25
rachel_BorNDeaD : it says I need to wait 8 hours10:25

bcoelho2000KUBUNTU ROCKS!!!!!10:27

BorNDeaD"sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly" --maybe10:28
peachesdamnit  are any of these links directed to kubuntu instead of ubuntu :/10:29
drostiektne: google suggests something like glib.10:29
eagles0513875peaches: the concepts are technically the same in regards to the links10:30
ktnedrostie: libglib2.0-dev10:30
bcoelho2000has anyone tried the new 9.04 Kubuntu?10:30
peacheseagles0513875: sure but this a new user here presumably no easy Adept install either gotta go to CLI10:31
eagles0513875intrepid has adept already installed with it10:32
eagles0513875jaunty is where it changes the package manager10:32
peachesanyway probably just the codec issue BorNDeaD says10:32
drostiektne: then I can't be more help -- I've never experienced that problem myself.10:32
ktnedrostie: thanks, but that was the solution :) it worked :)10:32
peachesrachel_: if it download claims to take 8 hours and you're not on dialup or something, then just cancel and try again.. the codec install will probably fix things10:33
BorNDeaDi had the same problem and i believe thats what i did to fix it rachel_10:33
Mamarokbcoelho2000: certainly a lot of people, check in #ubuntu+110:33
bcoelho2000i've installed the 8.10 version10:33
Mamarokbcoelho2000: but the release is in aprox 2 weeks, so if you don't have to change, wait10:34
bcoelho2000but i will probably use apt-distupgrade to take it to another level10:34
bcoelho2000hmm nice10:34
bcoelho2000now that MS wil end the support for WinXP I expect to see many people coming to the Linux world10:34
Mamarokhm, they actually plan to provide XP downgrade for Win7 users....10:35
Mamarokso I guess corporate support will still be here for quite some time10:36
bcoelho2000thats right. i've read about it in znet10:36
Mamarokthe only thing that ends is free support10:36
Mamarokbut "free" is a big word, having to stay in phone loops for 30 minutes certainly brings some cash too10:37
bcoelho2000the thing that made me stick with windows were: driver support and Visual Studio for asp.net + .net + sql server development10:37
bcoelho2000but now my goal is to install Apache + Mono on Kubuntu10:37

bcoelho2000hmm i understand10:43
bcoelho2000i'm trying to install flash player11:09
bcoelho2000but i can't find the plugins directory11:09
drostiean install of flashplugin-nonfree should do that sort of stuff for you.11:09

liberviscoSome things wont play in amarok..11:13
liberviscoand it just crashed :S11:14
BorNDeaDwhat wont play?11:14
liberviscosome shoutcast streams and some youtube stuff from the youtube plugin11:15
BorNDeaDi dont use amarok for that sorry11:15
BorNDeaDi have no idea11:15
Mamaroklibervisco: you talk about the youtube script?11:19
Mamarokthat's third party software, so you should check with the author11:20
liberviscoyeah and shoutcast11:20
Mamaroklibervisco: which version of Amarok?11:20
Mamarokwell, it works in 2.1, so maybe wait for the package to arrive in your repos11:21
Mamarokbackports btw11:21
Mamarokshoutcast I mean11:21
liberviscowill it come to jaunty before release?11:21
Mamarokbut sometimes it's just the streams server who are down, that's not an Amarok problem11:21
liberviscoyeah, could be11:21
Mamaroklibervisco: not likely, feature freeze11:22
liberviscojust was weird cause some of these streams are in the "cool streams" list which should rarely be down11:22
Mamarokbut it will end up in the backports11:22
liberviscodamn :S11:22
Mamaroklibervisco: as I said, that's a server problem, not an Amarok problem11:22
Mamarokwe only provide the links, not the servers :)11:22
liberviscoI know :D11:22
liberviscowell actually I wont add a backports repository, just get the specific amarok package11:23
liberviscodon't want to have other stuff updated which I don't want :)11:23
Mamarokthen just choose what you want, you don't have to install everything11:23
Mamarokand you will have to activate the backports to get it, once it's in the repo11:24
liberviscoyeah, but I mean if there is something in backports that I already do have installed, but don't want updated11:24
Mamarokyou don't have to, just select what you want to install11:24
tsimpsonyou can choose what packages to update and what not11:24
liberviscoon dist-upgrade I mean11:24
liberviscoor just upgrade11:24
tsimpsonthen don't dist-/upgrade ;)11:25
tsimpsonjust apt-get install <package>11:25
tsimpsonand it'll be updated11:25
liberviscoah but that's too convenient not to do :P11:25
Mamaroklibervisco: you don't make distrupgrade everytime, only once to upgrade, then you choose what you want in kpackagekit11:25
liberviscobtw, anyone has issues with adding widgets to the panel?11:27
liberviscothis is a clean from-scratch net install.. and it didn't work from the get go.. when I press the thing for editing the panel and click the "add widgets" button, the dialog shows up for like a milisecond and then just disappears and nothing happens11:28
liberviscoI can add widgets to the desktop though, just not the panel11:28

jaimeHi, I just installed kubuntu 8.04.2 and my microphone works, but doesn't record or function with skype16:15
vertago1jaime are you using kde4 or 3?16:16
jaimeIn kmix or alsa-mixer I have tried everything, it's very weird, because the mic gives an output through my speakers16:16
vertago1ok good16:16
vmeloI have hardy running here and there is no trouble with skype16:16
vertago1skype doesn't work with kde4 until like 4.216:16
=== jaime is now known as GARZA
GARZAI'm using Kubuntu 8.04.2, installed from the CD.16:17
jussi01vmelo: Ive heard that installing the 915 driver fixes the issue16:17
vertago1Garza have you looked in the settings to see if there are switches and chanels you arn't showing in kmix?16:17
GARZAvertago1: I have tried everything, within kmix16:18
GARZAvertago1: all switches, and nothing16:18
vertago1well to keep the mic from outputing through your speakers you need to mute the mic on the kmix16:19
vertago1as an output16:19
GARZAvertago1: I don't get it, I have installed Ubuntu dozens of times, and never had this problem16:19
vmelojussi01, that's good, I'm gonna give it a try again soon16:19
GARZAvertago1: Yes, that works, the problem ist that it doesn't record with krec or send sound with skype16:19
ddevnulcya dudes16:20
ddevnullol br na parada16:20
GARZAvertago1: And of course I have record on the mic activated through kmix16:20
vertago1GARZA are there input source switches on yours?16:21
GARZAvertago1: I have KDE 3.5.1016:25
GARZAvertago1: and the input source switches are on the mic, as I said, the Mic works, I can hear it on the speakers, but I'm not able to record or use skype with it, I don't know why16:26
vertago1GARZA what other switch options are there? some cards have a front mic too16:26
GARZAThis has no front mic16:27
BluesKajvertago1, the front mic is usually the onboard audio on the mobo16:28
vertago1not sure what to tell you GARZA, since you already can hear the mic over the speakers when you unmute it. If there is a record volume you might check that, or you might check the sound device selected in skype16:30

MTecknologybut not konqueror21:00
MTecknologywhat kind of site do you want?21:01
mrksbrdyea i would say standard is different21:01
peterhilMTecknology: The site looked ok in Safari too, so it must be a problem with some Konqueror rendereing bug21:01
MTecknologycan I blame it on konqueror? :)21:01
mrksbrdMTecknology: photography21:01
MTecknologyso you want a pretty theme and a gallery?21:02
mrksbrdi'll PM u21:02
patarokhas anybody an idea what the reason could be that elisa wont start anymore?21:02

malibuok I am used to ubuntu.. my first time with kubuntu.. How do I change to a static address?  I opened up the 'globe' in the toolbar, created a connection called eth0 and gave it the address but it's not taking??21:10
mrksbrdjust trying to get this damn dialer to work21:10
mrksbrdi'm running out of ideas here21:11
ActionParsnip1malibu: you can edit /etc/network/interfaces  to set static ip, the app will then be useless, you will have to set dns servers in /etc/resolv.conf21:11
malibuActionParsnip1: really?  wow.. ok21:11
malibuActionParsnip1: Why have the app then?21:11
ActionParsnip1malibu: its good for people who dont like editting config files even though its not that hard. its also handy if you roa between multiple LANs21:13
malibuActionParsnip1: but you just said I had to edit the config file anyway..21:13
ActionParsnip1malibu: if you populate that file your system will boot marginally faster as it will not wait for dhcp to complete21:14

ActionParsnip1malibu: i never said you HAD TO. I said you COULD21:14
malibuActionParsnip1: Oh21:14
malibuOh.. sorry.. I thought you said the app WAS useless, not 'will then' be useless21:14
ActionParsnip1malibu: if you populate the file, it will supercede any settings in the app21:15

cspackwish i had a blackberry to test it myself :)21:19
mrksbrdi don't know what else to do21:20
mrksbrdguess i'll have to see if the creator will ever get back to me to figure it out21:21
cspackmight want to send your log file to the author's email address tcolar@colar.net21:21

ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL.

jseaboldI realize that the only difference between kubuntu and ubuntu but I just the desktop environment, but I just want to make sure that's the only difference.  Packages for ubuntue work on kubuntu, there aren't any big compiler issues, etc.?23:04

ZirgHey Gang. Attempted to update LTS to LTS (via the net) and am having major difficulties. Can someone look at this paste with me and suggest a way to overcome these dependency failures??    http://rafb.net/p/au0GRS14.html23:38
Zirgwhat does the error     cannot configure (current status `config-files')    mean to me? is it trying to tell me that some config files needs handled, somewhere? (no curses windows are open)23:38
tsimpsonZirg: try sudo apt-get -f install23:40
Zirgtsimpson, "Been There, Done That, Got the T-Shirt" and to no avail.23:40
ramonDoes anybody know why do my Kubuntu 8.04 after upgrade has no sound?23:40
Zirgtsimpson, wanna see the pastebin of that?23:40
acr0nymhow do I install kde themes23:41
acr0nymgoogle isn't helping out, I have the tar.gz file23:41
Zirgtsimpson, http://rafb.net/p/lnwYcI32.html23:42
chesterPlease keep talking, I a, starting to learn something23:42
tsimpsonZirg: it looks like it's a mix of debian and ubuntu23:44
tsimpson"libxfixes-dev: Depends: libxfixes3 (= 1: but 1:4.0.3-2 is installed" <- for instance23:44
tsimpsonunless you mean upgrading to jaunty23:45
Zirgtsimpson, yeah. i'm aware and i've just followed the instructions from the users in this and #Ubuntu to upgrade LTS to LTS.23:45
gorgonizeracr0nym: you should be able to add the new theme via System Settings -> Icons I believe, but have never done so myself..23:46
Zirgtsimpson, 6.06.2 LTS to 8.04 LTS was what I have been TRYING to do.23:46

tsimpsonok, so that's a hardy package, just not "ubufied"23:47
Zirgtsimpson, okay... (i guess) so where to, from here?23:48
tsimpsonZirg: what output does "sudo apt-get install xset" show?23:48
Zirgtsimpson, I'm big time afeared to power this thing off!23:48
tsimpsontrying to install each failing package may show more info23:48
Zirgtsimpson, it'll toss up a bunch of depend errors. want me to pastebin 'em or /msg 'em to you?23:48
acr0nymgorgonizer, there isn't an icons option. Only appearance, but there I have to add everything manually23:49
acr0nymno one an idea on how to install themes?23:49
Zirgtsimpson, hmm. in this case, it didn't. may i pm three lines to you?23:49
tsimpsonif it's short, my client "ping"s when I get a message ;)23:50
gorgonizeracr0nym: apologies.. I have been drinking today for the first time in 5 years... but in Appearance there should be an Icons subset.. from which there is an option to install a Theme file...23:50
Zirgtsimpson, OUCH! I lied to ya. :-(  It was six lines. Sorry!23:50
* Zirg hangs his head, in shame.23:50

Zirgtsimpson, explosion.  http://rafb.net/p/SAPoGx71.html23:52
tsimpsonhow about installing xutils23:54
acr0nymgorgonizer, it seems that I can only add icons in there23:54
acr0nymthe theme I downloaded has a lot more stuff like widgets etc23:54
gorgonizeracr0nym: ahhh, then in that case, I am unsure.. there must be an easy way to do it, but for the life of me I don't seem to be able to find it...23:55
bcoelho2000hi everybody!23:55
