lun4ticmaybe it's a problem with remote users00:00
talviki'm back. the problem goes away after I change the session in kdm. auto login is workin fine now00:00
lun4ticthat remote users are not allowed to run stuff00:00
tredbut when i sudo plasma it starts, only everything on desktop is root, and i cant change back to normal user00:00
lun4tictalvik: gz :)00:00
=== LJL is now known as lJl
lun4tictred: thats why you shouldn't start x apps as root00:01
tredseems remote users would be blocked from blocked sudo before blocking anything else00:01
lun4ticespecially not apps that start other apps and gui stuff00:01
lun4ticwhat's the error message when you try to start as normal user?00:01
tredim not trying to start anything as root, except as a fact i cant start it otherwise00:01
lun4ticwithout the exact error message nobody can help you cause nobody knows whats goin on :D00:02
tredi think it was command not found00:02
talviklun4tic: what do you think of the default font size?00:02
lun4ticis the vnc kde running in some sandbox?00:02
tredbrb, i will check again, with normal user /usr/bin/ plasma00:02
lun4tictalvik: what's with the font?00:03
tredstandard x11vnc00:03
lun4ticdidn't get that question00:03
sourcemakerare there steghide users?00:03
talviklun4tic: i think the default is 800:03
lun4ticin kdm?00:03
lun4ticor what00:04
talvikin kde after login00:04
ncfi1013if i only want one instance of firefox to open do i delete the default profile of firefox?00:05
lun4ticdejavu sans 800:05
lun4ticncfi1013: what does the number of profiles have to do with the number of instances firefox starts?00:06
lun4ticncfi1013: normally there is only one instance00:07
ncfi1013lun4tic: everytime i opened firefox two instances would open at the same time00:07
carpiiopening it from where? just a desktop icon ?00:07
lun4ticthe real binary?00:07
lun4ticor are you running some script00:08
ncfi1013carpii: opening it using alt-f200:08
lun4tic"ps aux |grep firefox" what das that say?00:08
talvikother them those two, there are only a few kde rough edges. plugins and driver installer works fast, easy and works!00:08
ncfi1013lun4tic: "ps aux |grep firefox" run that in the terminal?00:09
lun4ticit should show your grep command00:10
lun4ticand the running instances of firefox00:10
ncfi1013lun4tic: is there a space between the pole and grep? "| grep" like that?00:12
lun4ticdoesn't matter00:12
ncfi1013oh ok00:12
lun4ticspaces only matter in word processing apps and in login/passwords00:12
ncfi1013lun4tic what does this mean: ncfi1013 18802  0.0  0.0   3336   796 pts/2    S+   18:13   0:00 grep firefox00:13
lun4ticthat is the programm you are running00:14
lun4ticps aux shows all processes you have running00:14
lun4tic| gives the output to the app behind the |00:15
lun4ticand grep firefox shows only the firefox lines in the output of ps aux00:15
ncfi1013lun4tic so i can keep the default firefox profile and it wont hurt anything?00:15
lun4ticso it's a "command chain" somehow00:15

mauriceJust loaded ubuntu for the first time about a day ago and I've got the hang of it already!01:30
mauriceJust thought Id say that!01:30
carpiihows kde 4.x looking these days? many issues ?   I tried 4.1 and it was utter rubbish01:30
macomaurice: great!01:30
carpiibut im facing facts that i gotta migrate at some point :/01:30
macocarpii: 4.2 was decent and 4.3's got some great touch-ups01:31
mauriceCheers MACO01:31
macomaurice: welcome to the community :)01:31
carpiiis it stable?01:31
mauricetHANKS A LOT GUYS01:31
sobczykbut still systemsettings does not have administrator mode...01:31
avihaybcarpii: It's a bit heavier, but since 4.2.2, it's fully useable01:31
carpiior is there a 'outstanding bug list' i can view ?01:31
carpiiheavier as in cpu/resources?01:31
sobczykkpackagekit can't switch to root for installing01:31
macocarpii: 4.3.1 is whats in 9.1001:32
avihaybyhe, I guess, It's just slower. I've installed 9.04 on this p4 1.5GHZ with 512MB not a high end machine01:32
carpiiyeah, im still on 8.04 though01:32
carpiii darent risk upgrading until i hear good things :(01:32
macocarpii: kpackagekit is rather boned. either install synaptic or use the command line if youre comfortable with that. other than that, looks good01:33
sobczyka lot depends on graphic card in kde401:33
avihayband it was slow, alt tabbing was very annoying. at first I installed kde3, it sped things up abit01:33
carpiihm, i normally use adept tbh, but by cmdline you mean sudo apt-get ?01:33
macoavihayb: did you have compositing turned on?01:33
macocarpii: yes, apt-get01:33
carpiiok thanks01:34
sobczyktry aptitude01:34
macocarpii: no kde4 adept, so kpackagekit is in use in 9.x, but its kinda broken01:34
macosobczyk: either works01:34
carpiii take it theres no way to roll back after? without backing up entire drive ?01:34
avihaybhad it on and of. sometimes, compositing would actually speed things up01:34
macocarpii: nope01:34
carpiiok, thanks01:34
maco*shrug* i dont use kwin. im a tiling window manager type01:34
sobczykexcept the admin mode and kpackagekit (which is installed by default somehow) the 9.10 is really great :)01:35
avihaybI never could adept to adept. actually, the way I see it, adept never adapted to people, so it got extinced...01:35
macoavihayb: sounds right to me!01:35
macoi got so brain-boggled trying to figure out adept to fix a friend's system, i gave up and went command line. i was a gnome user at the time01:36
avihaybmaco:  I'm a kde user, and the first software I install is synaptic01:39
macoi only switched to kde when 4.2 came out01:39
macopeople asking for help with 4.0 confuse me01:39
DoubleD84computers really piss me off some times...01:48
* genii sics an ARM-based system on DoubleD8401:49
DoubleD84honestly i replaced a motherboard after it slowly fried 4gb of ram and now that i've got a new board and ram I can't find any install discs i need. I'm stuck using the laptop that the kids tore half the bloody keys off of to download ne images only to realize that the burner is NFG too01:52
DoubleD84and i've got 3 small kids that are supposed to be in bed01:52
* DoubleD84 vent over01:53
DoubleD84i found a jaunty install cd01:53
avihayb:-> you should do something about kids destroying laptop issue01:55
DoubleD84that would involve beating the wife and that wont do me any good either01:55
* genii gets the downtrodden wife to write some code\\01:56
DoubleD84when installing jaunty from the install disc.. and you select the partitions you want mounted/formatted does it format when you hit 'forward'? I can't tell if its locked up02:23
DoubleD84the cursor says busy and the monitor will turn off eventually but there is no hard drive activity and it just seems to be taking a while.. its a 200gb partition that i'm formatting so i'm hoping that's the issue02:26
avihaybIt ahouldn't be02:27
avihaybI suggest you go to the liveCD, install something nice like gPartEd, format by yourself, and then retry installing if it's an issue02:28
DoubleD84well im going to hop in the shower and if its still idling when i get out i'll give it a shot02:29

loicdoes anyone know how to change the default ssh shell17:48
Guest49161Hello.  :)17:48
jhutchins_ltloic: To what for instance?17:49
loicbecause i don't understand why but sh is launched and not bash17:49
jhutchins_ltloic: I'm pretty sure it pulls the shell from the user's environment.17:49
jhutchins_lt*buntu doesn't use bash iirc.17:49
loicwhereis sh tells me /bin/sh and /bin/sh is a symbolic link on /bin/bash17:50
jhutchins_ltssh (user@)<host> /bin/bash17:50
loicjhutchins_lt: I know and i try to change it with the chsh command to bash but it doesn't work17:50
jhutchins_ltloic: bash will emulate sh if called as sh.17:51
macoum no17:51
macosh in ubuntu is a symlink to dash17:51
macoso itll act like dash17:51
macounless youre using dapper...?17:52
loicjhutchins_lt: ok, but the only thing i want is that /etc/bash.bashrc and ~/.bashrc are loaded17:52
loicmaco: it's not really a ubuntu problem17:52
loicmaco: just a debian one17:52
macodash is ubuntu's default sh. it is not debian's, AFAIK. they were debating switching to it but figured itd break a lot of scripts17:53
loicno, i mean, my question about how to set the default ssh login is not about ubuntu17:53
loicjhutchins_lt: I tried ssh user@host /bin/bash but it remains stuck just after i entered the password17:55
jhutchins_ltloic: Default ssh shell should come from /etc/passwd17:55
loicwithout /bin/bash at the end is ok17:55
jhutchins_ltloic: Does /bin/bash exist?17:55
loicjhutchins_lt: i look (for /etc/passwd)17:55
loicjhutchins_lt: yes17:55
loicjhutchins_lt: ok in /etc/passwd all logins shells are set to /bin/sh17:56
loicis there any way to change that for all users? (I won't edit this file manually because that way it won't work with future users)17:57
jhutchins_ltloic: There is a default template for new users that can be changed.18:00
jhutchins_ltusermod -s /bin/bash <user>18:00
jhutchins_lt/etc/adduser.conf can be changed to change the default used by adduser.18:07
