jwisserScottK & JontheEchidna: Hello. Sorry I've been elsewhere the last few days; I'm about to get in touch with UndoIT. Is there anyone else I missed and should contact?02:35
JontheEchidnaI cannot recall anyone else02:36
ScottKThere was someone who was here who volunteered to help on web site design02:40
* ScottK is blanking on who02:40
jwisserSomeone besides UndoIT? https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kubuntu-devel/2009-November/003516.html02:50
ScottKYes, it was someone on IRC02:51
ScottKMy backlog search doesn't seem to be working out very well though02:52
ScottKRiddell: Would it be possible to move "Kubuntu Lucid Packaging" back an hour on Monday.  There's another session on at Noon I'd like to go to.04:07
ScottK(back meaning earlier)04:07
ScottKRiddell: I've also got a conflict the last hour of the day for Kubuntu Lucid Development04:09
* kb9vqf really, really hates Compiz & KDE virtual desktops vs. viewports04:24
ScottKkb9vqf: Switch to KDE4 and use Kwin.  Problem solved.04:29
kb9vqfScottK: Well, that would solve one problem and create about 50 others ;-)04:30
* kb9vqf doesn't use compositing anyway; it's for another user04:30
ScottKI didn't either in KDE3.  I find it very useful in KDE4.04:31
dtchen_ScottK: out of curiosity, what sorts of workflows benefit from kwin's compositing?04:44
ScottKdtchen_: I find it's present windows a very good way to switch between windows when I have a bunch open.04:46
ScottKI also find some of the translucency stuff benificial.04:47
dtchen_ok, so overview type? Interesting.05:00
ScottKI was chatting with a friend of mine who uses both OS X and KDE 3 (in Debian Testing) and is likely to switch to KDE 4 soon perhaps without OS X.  When he described the feature he'd most miss from OS X (I can't remember Apple's name for it), it turned out to be pretty exactly "Present Windows".05:11
Lex79ScottK: do you know why python-marble package is disabled in the kdeedu's control file? no informations in changelog05:14
JontheEchidnait failed to build once upon a time05:14
JontheEchidnaoh, maybe not. I might be thinking of something else05:15
* JontheEchidna tries to remember why05:15
JontheEchidnaSime: Do you have any recollection of ^^? I think you might have been consulted at one point about it05:16
Lex79well, I can test if builds, if not, I can keep it disabled05:16
ScottKIIRC it was disabled in the Jaunty backport due to bindings problems.05:31
ScottKI should have been enabled for Karmic05:31

danttihey Riddell and JontheEchidna, well if what i did get in debconf package, I'd include that kde code in KPackageKit, and gnome-packagekit would be implemented by it's author too..11:42
Riddelldantti: but doesn't packagekit daemon prevent interruptions?11:43
danttiRiddell: well it does not allow you to use packagekit methods that block the transaction, but that doesn't mean we can't do an out of band solution... :D11:44
danttiRiddell: actually i could do exactly what aptdaemon does right now, and have debconf support11:44
danttibut i prefer to implement that directly into debconf-comunicate to avoid coding it twice (kpk and gpk) the same make socket read socket, then pass to d-c...11:45
Riddelldantti: how does out of band work?  surely debconf needs to ask and get an answer during the package install11:45
danttiRiddell: the out of band means like out of PackageKit, we code in an ifndef the code to handle debconf in kpk and gpk, then pass the socket path (in the case of dbus debconf frontend i passed the connection id), then aptcc (or apt) backends pass that to passthrough..11:47
danttiRiddell: that doesn't change PackageKit methods and flow in any way, what we have is a solution that has another way of comunication...11:48
Riddellall very impressive sounding11:48
Riddelldantti: so what should we be pushing for inclusion at UDS next week?11:48
danttiit just use packagekit to make the backend aware of what comunication form should be used (ie a socket path..)11:49
Riddellneversfelde: pkg-kde-tools_0.5.2ubuntu2 should fix your compile problem with doc paths11:51

amichairjussi01: I saw a bunch of reports about ppl clicking activate and nothing happens - is this all the same bug?12:09
jussi01amichair: Im not certain, but seems a user fixed it the other day by running apt-get update. however, I dont know for sure.12:09
jussi01it did not fix it for me.12:09
Riddellyes that's what happened when I tried it12:09
amichairjussi01: so I guess that's not it...12:10
jussi01amichair: I think not, in all cases, but in some.12:10
jussi01amichair: I was able to install with jockey-gtk yesterday (as I just said), when even after apt-get update jockey-kde did not work.12:11

Riddellamichair: one with the most useful information/comments I guess13:15
amichairRiddell: and does launchpad automatically take care of transitivity, i.e. one dup of two dup of three, will make them all point to three?13:16

Riddellbut then you'll need to merge or just copy the debian directory if you want to package it13:28

Riddellquestions are good13:40
amichairRiddell: ok, one more :-)  : is pitti the one I should ask to review the branch and merge?13:40

Quintasanhurr durr, ugly dependencies on policykit agents19:25
antlarrI think just including kdelibs3 and kdepimlibs3 (and their -dev packages) would be enough to have a fully functional taskjuggler19:25

Quintasanlast update of taskjuggler Oct 20, 200919:28
ScottKIIRC, pimlibs wasn't a separate package in KDE3.19:29
neversfeldeI have a package that needs phonon-backend-xine or phonon-backend-gstreamer. It can't depend on it, because KDE people do not want phonon-backend-gstreamer, I suppose. Where is the right place to mention these packages Recommends or  Suggests?19:29
ScottKQuintasan: As I understand it, policykit integration for KDE is coming in KDE 4.4.19:29
nixternalScottK: kdepimlibs?19:30
ScottKnixternal: Yes.  Wasn't that just part of kdepim in KDE3?19:30

amgarchIn9Hi, is gdm installed on Karmic Kubuntu by default. I have both gdm/kdm and they are constantly in the way of each other. Seem not to respect "dpkg-reconfigure gdm/kdm" anymore.19:47
QuintasanamgarchIn9: why don't you just remove gdm or kdm?19:47
QuintasanamgarchIn9: there is no need for both19:47
Tm_TQuintasan: that doesn't answer the question19:47
amgarchIn9can anybody confirm gdm is not installed on Kubuntu Karmic?19:48
QuintasanTm_T: but helps the user, propably :P19:48
antlarrQuintasan: I would swear it should be in this package: http://packages.ubuntu.com/es/hardy/libkdepim1a19:48
Quintasandpkg -L gdm - "Package gdm not installed"19:49
QuintasanamgarchIn9: I'm on fresh install19:49
antlarrI was wrong, there was an explicit package for that library:  http://packages.ubuntu.com/es/hardy/libkcal2b19:49
amgarchIn9Quintasan: if kde is started grom gdm you dont get Shutdown/Restart buttons in kde menus.19:49
QuintasanamgarchIn9: and anything prevents you from using kdm for GNOME session?19:50
amgarchIn9why shouldnt both ubuntu-desktop and kubuntu-destop coexist peacefully. I had them both installed over three realeases.19:51
amgarchIn9the two (virtual) packages do not conflict formally.19:51
Tm_Tthey should coexist peacefully19:52
Tm_Tif not, there's bug19:52
QuintasanamgarchIn9: but they install packages containing settings which may conflict19:52
amgarchIn9if they are not supposed to coexist, one should introduce a formal conflict.19:52
amgarchIn9kdm/gdm also do not conflict19:52
Tm_Tand shouldn't19:52

nixternalalmost to much has changed, to the point I should go back to Windows development :p22:59
ofirmore updates next week (I hope :)23:00
JontheEchidnabah, it's the new oxygen-icon being stuck in new23:01
amichairJontheEchidna: I fixed the jockey 'activate doesn't do anything' and a crash bug I managed to reproduce, but there are a whole bunch of crash bugs with no details of what the user did, no useful stacktrace, etc. I dunno what can be done with them.23:01
JontheEchidnaamichair: what was the deal with the "activete doesn't do anything"? I could never figure that one out.23:02
dtchen_we need a developer-only LP tag consisting of ":("23:02
amichairJontheEchidna: hehe... it had 5 duplicate bugs. it was a trivial gui thing. one of the bug reporters actually gave a correct analysis of the problem (I read it only after closing the bug, but it didn't take long anyway)23:03
Lureofir: nice and professional looking23:04
amichairJontheEchidna: the problem was that when the gui opened up or refreshed, the first item was highlighted, but not 'current' in the QT sense. that's it.23:04
JontheEchidnahighlighted but not selected... interesting23:04
amichairJontheEchidna: yes, qt has selectedItems and currentItem, they are not the same. iirc in windows there is visual feedback of this - selected items are highlighted, and the current item has a tiny dotted frame around it23:05
amichairJontheEchidna: anyway, u can look at the diff, the actual bug fix is one line, and I added a couple more for good measure :-)23:06
JontheEchidnaBefore I had thought that maybe the signal/slot weren't being connected, but I suppose it turned out to be much more tricky :)23:07
JontheEchidnabut now... food time. back in a bit23:07
amichairJontheEchidna: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~amichai2/jockey/fixes/revision/583 (the fix is the last line)23:08
amichairJontheEchidna: anyway, is there any other bug you'd like to see closed?23:10
shtylman_Riddell: im pretty sure that patch isn't relevant anymore23:28
shtylman_it was a ksplash issue which has been fixed in other ways I think23:28
shtylman_don't hold me to that though... cause I havn't followed that patch in a while23:28
shtylman_I know I made it to deal with icon clipping and don't know if that is still a problem23:29
JontheEchidnawe could probably not apply it (but don't delete it) and then monitor the situation23:30
JontheEchidnaamichair: not in particular23:31
JontheEchidnaamichair: if there were a list of bugs that should be looked at by developers, would that be useful to you?23:31
amichairJontheEchidna: yep, what kind of list? like cherrypicking the most important/difficult/annoying bugs around?23:32
JontheEchidnain theory anything marked as "triaged" in the bug tracker for kde-related entries should have enough info to fix, but should there be an alternative list? (Maybe posted in the topic)23:32
amichairJontheEchidna: dunno what exactly, but working with the lp bugs the past week seemed more like working with a flat list than anything usefully prioritized23:33
amichairlp itself rocks though :-)23:33
JontheEchidnayeah, we're a bit short on hands there on bug triage... just me and, when he can, apachelogger23:34
amichairamichair: I'm really impressed with everything being integrated and ajaxy and stable and smooth... whoever done it, did a great job :-)23:34
amichairbut the actual status/importance/reports were pretty much like a flat list23:35
amichairlots of dups, bugs with no info, wishes mixed up with bugs, gtk/kde/core all mixed up...23:36
amichairthere is room for improvement there23:36
JontheEchidnabinary package separation within the tracker is something I've wanted for a long time23:37
amichairalso subjects which are not informative, or have no correlation to the content...23:37
amichairit would be easier to work with if it was better monitored an maintained23:38
JontheEchidnayeah... we just need more people for that23:38
amichairamichair: I did what I could along the way, marked dups, changed subjects, etc.23:39
amichairbut when unmaintained, it's hard to see the forset for the trees23:39
amichairI think I'm being too verbose here. I'll shut up a bit :-)23:40
JontheEchidnanah, at the least you don't have as many consecutive lines as apachelogger or myself sometimes have :D23:40
amichairwell I don't yet feel at home in the channel, more of an intruder23:42
* JontheEchidna triages a few jockey-kde bugs23:43
* amichair likes JontheEchidna's attitude!23:50
JontheEchidnaamichair: btw, when you request info feel free to mark the bug's status as incomplete. Then if in 30 days the user hasn't responded you can close the bug23:57
