nightwlkrwell am a newbie u can say but what's the problem? maybe i can help00:00
nico480i was trying to fix the drivers on my friend's computer and whaen I went to the hardware section to change the driver so she could get a 1024x768 res. after i put it on the one that is suspose to be the recommended driver i rebooted and got nothing but a black screen. anyone know how to change it back?00:02
nightwlkrouch... that i think requires editing of xserver config00:04
nightwlkrpress ctrl + f4 go to text based00:06
nico480ok then what?00:06
nightwlkryikes i had a similar issue on kubuntu 7.04 that was more than a year ago00:06
nightwlkri don't remember the location of the file :(00:07
nightwlkrlet me check online00:07
nightwlkrlogin text based00:09
nightwlkrnano /etc/X11/xorg.conf00:09
nico480ok now what?00:10
nightwlkrlet me try and c where i edited if i can find it i'll help u out..00:10
nico480great! thank you so much00:11
nightwlkrok u have section "Device"00:12
nightwlkrwhat's the device under there?00:12
nico480i have "get help" "write out" "read file" "prev page"00:13
nico480"next page" "cut text" "cur pos"00:13
nightwlkrit's blank?00:14
nightwlkrthat means there was no file00:14
nightwlkrnote that it's case sensitive X11 capital x00:14
nico480ok i didn't caps the x00:15
nico480now i have a whole bunch of writing on the main screen00:16
robin0800nico480: there is no xorg.conf file on a new install of the beta00:16
nightwlkri didn't know that00:17
nico480well its not a new install of the beta00:17
nightwlkrSection "Device"00:18
nightwlkrIdentifier"Configured Video Device"00:18
nightwlkru c this?00:18
FloodBotK2nightwlkr: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.00:18
nightwlkrso it's configured video device00:18
plazzXorg automatically detects hardware and loads the appropriate driver the majority of the time. so kubuntu ships without the config.00:18
nightwlkrnot any brand or driver00:18
nico480yes have section device identifier configured video device00:19
nightwlkrso it was differnt on 7.04 ?00:19
plazznico480: post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to a site(the paste site linked above for example)00:21
nico480I can't because i am typing on my laptop and her computer can not get online until i fix this problem00:22
plazznico480: does hitting alt+ctrl+f1 take you to a terminal or does the screen remain blank?00:22
nico480i have a terminal00:23
plazznico480: type 'cat /var/log/Xorg.log', the errors x is having should be there. sounds like the driver isn't being loaded for whatever reason.00:24
nightwlkrplazz: his problem is that xserver doesn't recognise the new driver he specified00:24
nightwlkrhe needs to manually configure it back to the old driver00:24
nico480it says that it has the 178 driver but was reccommended to be at 180 so when i changed it i got a black screen00:25
nico480so i have to ctrl-alt-f1 to get the terminal screenm00:26

ZeikfriedWhere could i find a .DEB package for the 2.6.27-9 kernel?00:44
nightwlkrit's the best way i could think of that i could do as a newbie..like i said i don't have much knowledge linux based00:44
nightwlkrnico480: let me know if it works though :P00:46
nico480i don't know what to answer the first one00:47
nightwlkrwhat's the question?00:48
nico480use kernel framebuffer device interface00:48
nightwlkryes i guess00:49
nightwlkrwell this is the xserver config so no matter what u do u will still b able to use the terminal00:49
nightwlkrif i'm not mistaken00:50
nico480ok i went through them what now?00:50
nightwlkrreboot .. sudo reboot00:50
nightwlkror sudo startx00:51
plazzjust startx. no need to sudo it unless you explicitly want to run it as the superuser(tip: chances are you don't.)00:53
nightwlkrwhat do u think plazz? should this work?00:54
nightwlkrnico480: any luck?00:55
nico480yes but now does anyone know how i can give her the option of setting her resolution to 1024x768 instead of 800x60000:57
nightwlkrwhat's her vga?00:58
nightwlkrvga..like sis..ATI etc..00:58
nico480don't know where would i find that info?00:58
nightwlkris it a built in vga?00:59
nico480i guess so01:00
nightwlkrwhat's her main board then?01:00
nico480pls tell me where to look in ordr to tell this information01:01
nightwlkrwell easiest way i know of is on the mainboard01:01
nightwlkrbut that tells u all hardware that linux has installed01:02
plazzlspci | grep VGA <- shows me at least the vga controller. (case sensitive)01:03
nightwlkrlspci |grep VGA01:03
nightwlkr01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 661/741/760 PCI/AGP or 662/761Gx PCIE VGA Display Adapter (rev 03)01:04
nightwlkrcause i have the same issue :P but stuck on 900x60001:04
nico48000:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C51G [GeForce 6100]  (rev a2)01:05
nightwlkrnico480: checking google to c what i can find01:07
nightwlkrhad same issue and still have with my sis built in vga..went and got a an ATI pci express card back then to fix this problem01:08
nico480so does anyone have any idea about how i can get this setting changed?01:11
plazzdid you install the nvidia driver? is 800x600 the highest resolution you can see in System Settings > Display?01:12
nico480yes 800x600 is the highest res. that she has01:13
plazzand you installed the driver?01:14
nico480nope it came with the computer01:14
nightwlkror u can try this way01:17
nightwlkrsudo apt-get install nvidia-glx01:17
nightwlkrsudo apt-get install nvidia-settings01:17
nightwlkrsudo nvidia-glx-config enable01:17
nightwlkrhard way..easy way..u choose :P01:19
nico480ok that really didn't get me anywhere honestly01:20
nightwlkrwhy not nico480?01:20
nico480ok last one says command not found01:21
nightwlkrdid the first 2 install?01:21
nico480second says already newest version01:22
nico480and first one says you should explicitly select one to install01:23
nightwlkrurs is 173 no?01:24
nico480but it says 180 is the reccommended setting01:26
nightwlkrsudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-17301:26
nightwlkrit's 35.1 mb i hope u have a fast connection..not like mine :P01:27
nico480after this operation 4026kb disk space will be freed continue?01:27

ttongi have not sure.06:06
ttongi'm new in ubuntu.06:06
ttongi'm testing it, how to use it.06:06
uboxyes it is great, the only thing i am having trouble with is resume from suspend and there is an issue with the policy kit that is used for packages, so i have to install from the command line but that is alright for beta06:07
uboxi sort of am as well. i used redhat and mandrake years back but was a mac user for the last few years. now i am back and using ubuntu for the first time.06:07

uboxyes, i like it much better than commercial os's06:08
ttongsound's great.06:08

ttongis it automatically to update  from Beta to stable version06:09
ttongi mean graphic mode (no command line)06:09
uboxi am not sure, i hope so. i've begun customization06:09
ttongbecause now i'm  downloading ubuntu 9.10 and i don't know about that.06:10
uboxthe gui for packages of any kind is having a problem with authentication so it may be possible if they fix that, then upgrade the policy kit from command line then use gui for the distro upgrade06:10

RhapsodySince I normally come here when #ubuntu seems to be paying no attention (and I do actually use Kubuntu), how do I compile and install ALSA 1.0.21a on Jaunty? I'm currently using OSSv4.07:05
RhapsodyI like OSSv4, but various problems arise. Sound input from my webcam doesn't work, pSX emulator doesn't work, MPlayer is jerky because it doesn't interface properly with OSS and the developers don't want to fix it.07:08

aftermarketgirlany luck?07:18
kalpaftermarketgirl: it did work!! thanks !!07:18
aftermarketgirlbut you lost all your 3d effects07:18
aftermarketgirlif you want to fix them... there's something wrong with your compiz config07:19
aftermarketgirllike it's calling the wrong window decorator or something07:19
aftermarketgirlit should be somewhere in "desktop effects" preferences or... something07:20
aftermarketgirli'm just some geek07:20
aftermarketgirlbut if that doesn't have a setting for it, you can install "ccsm" or "compiz config settings manager"07:21

BluesKajHey all14:01
Matisseis there a good tool to resize a lot of images?14:03
VousDeuxI've been hoping for a very long time that eventually there would be a patch, but until then I have a problem where while working inside of a vmware guest some of my keyboard functions stop working (ctrl, shift, caps). I have a little script that I manually execute to get them working again.14:07
VousDeuxBesides putting this script in the crontab for minute execution, does anyone have any ideas how I can work around this issue?14:08
VousDeuxI guess I should have mentioned that it is on my Kubuntu host where the keys stop working...they still work inside of the vmware guest environment.14:11
BluesKajVousDeux, try making a bash script and placing it in /etc/int.d , rename it to an .sh file then update runlevels with sudo update-rc.d...no gurantees but it might work14:11
VousDeuxI already have a little script, that I found on the forum, that I keep on my desktop and double-click each time the keys stop working. I guess I'm too ignorant to understand your suggested solution. What should I read to become more enlightened on the subject?14:16
BluesKaj!bash | VousDeux14:16
ubottuVousDeux: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal14:16

BluesKajVousDeux, read about bin/bash scipts too14:18
VousDeuxOkay...thanks a bunch!14:18
VousDeuxHmmm...it would be cool if I could have the fix script automatically trigger on an error event that is triggered only when the keys stop working.14:22
BluesKajVousDeux, the vmware guest environment is windows ?14:34
VousDeuxYes. It seems to be something in Excel that breaks the keys in the host.14:35
VousDeuxI use the ctrl button alot inside of Excel.14:37
PiciVousDeux: You can configure that hotkey in vbox iirc.14:37
sdafsfsfhi all14:38
VousDeuxI don't know anything about vbox...I've been using  VMware for many many years.14:39
VousDeux...since version 3.214:39
VousDeuxI wonder if there is a feature comparison somewhere that compared vbox to vmware.14:41
sdafsfsfwhere i can change the language?14:42
jtheuerk control center14:42
VousDeuxI found a performance comparison that says vbox uses more RAM and does not use resources as efficiently as vmware.14:45
VousDeuxHmmm....vbox might be worth a look-see.14:48

ygmHi all....i have ati 8.66 fglrx driver and i wonder if there is a gui enabled in this driver? (catalyst control center?)  i have tried fglrx-amdcccle with no luck20:27
MamarokKristinn: no, not at all, it only adds the kubuntu-desktop20:27
Mamarokygm: IIRC there is a special package for that20:27
KristinnAh, but if I do want to totally wipe out Ubuntu, is that possible?20:27
MamarokKristinn: yes, just a second20:28
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about pure-kde20:28
Mamarok!pure kde20:28
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about pure kde20:28
Pavel_does anyone know an easy way to bypass a school filter?20:28
ubottuIf you want to remove all !Gnome packages and have a default !Kubuntu system follow the instructions here « https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PureKDE »20:28
MamarokPici: thx :)20:29
KristinnThanks a lot, Mamarok and Pici :)20:29

KristinnI'll come to you if everything goes horribly wrong and my house burns down :D20:30
Mamarokygm: I can only tell from memory, and that was quite some time ago, sorry20:31
MamarokKristinn: most unlikely :)20:31
ygmMamarok: okay..thanks anyway...good night20:32
Mamarokgood night ygm20:32
KristinnThanks a lot, I'll have a glass of water to threaten my laptop with, just to be safe :)20:33
KristinnSome of the packages could not be retrieved, do you want to continue without them? :S20:34
MamarokKristinn: could you please pastebin the output?20:35
KristinnErm, how do I do that? :S20:35
KristinnAnd I'm using two computers at once20:36
MamarokKristinn: you already have kubuntu-desktop installed on the other Computer?20:37
KristinnNo, one is a Windows PC.20:37
KristinnAnd I already downloaded Kubuntu, and it's on a disc20:37
KristinnCan't I use that?20:38
Mamaroksorry, I understood you were changing from Ubuntu to Kubuntu, didn't you say that earlier?20:38
Mamarokthen fire up that Computer where you already have Ubuntu and isntall kubuntu-desktop20:38
Mamarokwith sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop20:39
KristinnI just get a lot of "Unable to get http//20:41
KristinnAnd some text I can't be bothered to write down :S20:41
MamarokKristinn: are you online with that other PC?20:41
KristinnIndeed I am20:41
Mamarokthen you can copy the output into http://paste.ubuntu.com and give the URL here20:42
Kristinnhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/292586/ Here you go :D20:44
daimonie_I got a question20:49
daimonie_I just installed kubuntu, but it would appear that vista fucked something up and itś now missing BOOTMGR20:50
daimonie_which is usually fixed by using repair mode Vista installation discs20:50
daimonie_But i got no clue as to where my disc is20:50
daimonie_Any ways of doing this just frm my kubuntu installation?20:50
kaddiyou should be able to download an emergency cd for vista, which will offer you recovery console and similar to fix vista20:51
MamarokKristinn: looks like your mirror is not reachable20:51
Mamarokyou should try with the main server20:51
KristinnAh, but my ISP has a really, really, really limited data cap.20:52
Mamarokdaimonie_: you installed Vista after Kubuntu?20:52
daimonie_No, the other way around - i had a running vista installation with around 10GB free, which is now occupied by Kubuntu20:52
Mamarokdaimonie_: then you can restore grub20:53
ubottuGRUB is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto20:53
Mamaroksee the first link above20:53
MamarokKristinn: and there is only one mirror I guess?20:53
daimonie_Grub is working, its just that when i hit the "windows vista" entry, i get a message from vista that "BOOTMGR" is missing (checking out the link now)20:53
Mamarokdaimonie_: are you using grub or grub2 in Karmic?20:54
=== compilerwriter is now known as Guest26352
KristinnMamarok, I could change the download site quite easily.20:54
daimonie_Mamarok: i don know what that is, so its the kubuntu alt disc default20:55
MamarokKristinn: well, since the 404 shows that the mirror doesn't have these packages, you don't have much of a choice20:55
Mamarokdaimonie_: kubuntu alt disc default? what do you mean? wich version of Kubuntu is it?20:56
=== compilerwriter is now known as Guest85730
KristinnAh, I'll just cancel installing kubuntu for now, maybe have another shoot later :)20:56
MamarokKristinn: sometimes just an update can help20:56
daimonie_Mamarok: 9.0420:56
Mamarokdaimonie_: ok20:57
KristinnWell, I'm off, thanks a lot for the help :)20:57
kaddidaimonie_: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Startup-Repair-frequently-asked-questions that's the repair cd for vista, I was talking about earlier20:57
Mamarokdaimonie_: did you parition and install by hand or automatically?20:57
Mamarokkaddi: thx :)20:58
=== compilerwriter_ is now known as compilerwriter
daimonie_Mamarok: I did the partitioning manually20:58
daimonie_"If your computer manufacturer blabla preinstall "20:59
daimonie_HP elitebook, it has some recovery stuff installed somewhere20:59
daimonie_It might just have them XD20:59
daimonie_Lets check that in a minute21:00
daimonie_Else iĺl just try and find my Vista disc21:00
daimonie_Now, i got another question21:00
daimonie_I can seem to get my wireless working21:00
daimonie_Windows wlan properties tells me that its WPA2-Personal with EAP and a password21:00
daimonie_i downloaded knetworkmanager but it isn really connecting21:00
daimonie_Which is kinda annoying, because my room is on another floor and there is no LAN cable there21:01
daimonie_Mamarok: Have you got any idea to fix that21:02
kaddidaimonie_: that was the wrong link.  http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/how-to-make-a-windows-vista-repair-disk-if-you-dont-have-one/21:02
daimonie_Mamarok: Mmk, thanks for that one. And about the wlan troubles?21:04
kaddidaimonie_: if you ask me, try replacing networkmanager with wicd (another connection manager). It's been working much better for me. But maybe someone else has a better idea. (wicd will remove networkmanager, so if this does not run through smoothly, you might be left without a networkmanager)21:07

AlexZionhi everyone ...., I was trying the beta version of Karmic , and I have the same old problem with the wireless connection ....21:12
krazedDo you have the same problem on 9.04?21:12
AlexZionI use a laptop with an Intel 3945 on it ,itshould be standard ,so I cannot understand why it doesn't works ...21:12
AlexZionyes I had with the network applet , so now I'm using the old Knetworkmanager21:13
AlexZionkrazed: I was trying to setup the new network utility , but I saw that even the ethernet address was missing  ...21:16
AlexZionand I I had the same ugly beavhiour on theold version ...21:17

Mannequinhi. It often happens to me that in some places where I can easily connect to a Wi-Fi network using Windows, I can't get to the same network using Kubuntu21:56
=== droog_ is now known as Guest82486
egenaturehi evryone21:56
Mannequinand I'm talking about common WEP wi-fi networks, nothing fancy21:56
jhutchinsMannequin: wifi troubleshooting is rather difficult, especially since all we know about these hotspots is that you can connect with windows.21:58
Mannequinjhutchins: thanks. Yes, I understand. What really disconcerts me is that the KNetworkManager doesn't give any kind of feedback on what's going on on the background...21:59
MannequinI wonder if other methods/commands (like using iwconfig) are still valid to connect to wi-fi networks22:00
jhutchinsMannequin: Very few tools do, on either OS.22:00
Mannequin(on Kubuntu 9.04)22:00
jhutchinsMannequin: Yes, they are.22:00
jhutchinsI got a connection fixed by simply issuing "iwconfig ath0 associate"22:00
Mannequinjhutchins: thanks. I will have to refresh my mind to see how that worked22:01
Mannequinthanks for the tip too22:01
Mannequinand will also have to cross finger so any change (if any) doesn't interfere permanently with the "standard" way (that is, KNetworkManager)22:02
egenaturehello every one, am new to ubuntu22:03
s1ntaxWhere is a good place to find kde themes?22:09

pradeep_thanks mamarok22:11
s1ntaxOh one other thing I just updated my mactel from 8.10 to 9.04 and I was wondering if there is a option to turn on the touchpad dual finger scroll somewhere?22:11

hagabakahow can I register my host name on the DNS running on my router?22:18
high-rezIs it possible to do a live migration from ubuntu to kubuntu?  E.g. change the software sources and do a do-release-upgrade ?22:27
high-rezOs is there a better way to accomplish this goal? :)22:27
DaimonieI return22:27
DaimonieI fail once more, i accidently removed network-manager. However, i can't reinstall it (i 'm using my kubuntu cdrom as package provider)22:28
Daimonieit tells me: Depends libdbus-1-qt3-0 but is not installable22:28
DaimonieSo i'm wondering how i'm going to fix this without reinstalling it all22:28
DaimonieHas anybody got a clue?22:28
