lorecasterit's my hope that the Gods of karma will exact their will,... and i may have my NFS woes cleared away ;)01:57
godlikelorecaster: do you have any idea why i can install a new linux distro side by side to my old (have a dual boot) without deleting my whole disk, as happens in windows?01:58
=== anthony is now known as Guest21500
lorecasterit's an option on the disk.01:59
szalgodlike: you can also install a Linux distro alongside Windblows w/o destroying data01:59
godlikeis this cause of the linux, or of a tool like partition manager01:59
godlikeso its a tool01:59
lorecasterduring the install process, as you enter the area for partition managemnt... when you throw in the install disk and reboot...01:59
godlikewhy cant this be done with windows, and it takes over the entire hard disk?02:00
lorecasterbegin the install, it'll give you three options... install in remaining space, install side-by-side, or use whole disk (destroy data on disk)02:00
lorecasterbecause windows is the devil.02:00
szalof course if you use automagic partitioning and have no clue what the partitioner does, you might end up w/ quite a surprise..02:00
godlikeit cant be done but you have to divide the disk from the start02:00
lorecaster-shivers- been there02:00
lorecasterpainful memories, szal02:01
szalif you know your way around partitioning & prepare the disk beforehand, there's no surprises02:01
szalexcept for PEBKAC, that is :P02:01
lorecasterin the case of computer tech... there is ALWAYS room for surprises. :P02:01
bamboohi guys02:02

lorecasterI have a linux partition magic boot-CD... it works very well. but the boot-CD also has a partion magic option02:04
BerytoDelRiothere are a couple of freely downloadable partition software that you could use in windows.. you could have just resized your windows partition before installing linux02:06

WerenerdI am looking for the way to re-enable the ctrl+alt+backspace in Kubuntu, but all I can find on google is the Ubuntu instructions.02:27

BerytoDelRioluis were you able to get it working now?02:28
Werenerdlorecaster: what problems are you having with Samba?02:28
maple1fuck kubuntu02:28
tsimpson!dontzap | Werenerd02:28
ubottuWerenerd: To re-enable the Ctrl+Alt+Backspace combination that restarts your X server, you can install the "dontzap" package and use the command « sudo dontzap --disable ». The combination Alt+SysRq+K can also be used to obtain a similar effect.02:28
lorecasterinapproprate language, if i may say so, maple102:28
lorecasterDELL, the client, could see DESKTOP, the host, but could not log-on... i was suggested NFS because my problems just snowballed with Samba02:29
tsimpsonmaple1: watch your language here02:29
lorecasterand no one would ever help me with it.02:29
lorecasterthis is a kubuntu room, maple1, perhaps you should take your grievances elsewhere?02:29
Werenerdalt+sysrq+k is a new one on me. never heard that one before.02:30
Werenerddontzap is still used? I thought that was only for 9.0402:30
tsimpsonalt+sysrq+k kills everything running on the VT02:31

lorecasterwas i being addressed before i left and returned?02:34
Werenerdlorecaster: What are your woes? I have never had any problems with Samba, so I don't have much troubleshooting expierence.02:34
szal[03:33:00]             <szal> lorecaster: what now?  Samba or NFS?02:34
lorecasterit was permissions errors... and yeah, i'm curious, if there is a third option between samba and NFS02:34
Werenerdlorecaster: Permission errors, I had a few of those. Were files that were uploaded to a share not inheriting parent permissions?02:35
=== Furan is now known as Guest999
lorecasterwasn't sure at the time... i made /home/lorecaster/Desktop a share with RW and i made /media/STORAGE a share with rw02:36
lorecasterusing samba, i could SEE the computer (also called desktop) but could not access it. said i did not have permissions... so i moved onto NFS02:37
tsimpsonsshfs ftw02:37
WerenerdWhat were the OS'es of both machines. They only time I had that problem was with a windows machine02:38
lorecasterDESKTOP was ubuntu 9.10, while the client was windows XP... they're both ubuntu now02:38
Werenerdthat sounds about right. Since they are both *buntu, you haven't had that same problem have you?02:39
lorecasterhaven't used samba since02:39
lorecasterthink i should?02:39
Werenerdtsimpson: that dontzap blurb is wrong. Do we need to tell someone? I found it finally02:40
tsimpsonWerenerd: what's wrong with it?02:40
Werenerdlorecaster: oh yeah. It is so dead simple now. wait... you said Ubuntu not Kubuntu, right?02:40
lorecastergnome, true02:40
Werenerdtsimpson: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/DontZap02:41
Werenerdtsimpson: it is now an option under keyboard layouts02:41
lorecasteron DELL (client) went into places and network (network:///)02:42
Werenerdlorecaster: I only have experience with KDE, but it has to be similar. All I do is make sure I have all the Samba stuff installed. Right click on the folders I want to share, and pick the options I want from the fancy GUI.02:42
lorecasterthen into DESKTOP (server)02:42
lorecasterin smb://desktop/ i see deskto02:42
lorecasterdesktop and storage02:42
lorecasterdesktop opens fine, storage gives me an error02:42
Werenerdlorecaster: that sounds right02:42
Werenerdwhere is the STORAGE/02:42
tsimpsonWerenerd: I'll get it fixed02:42
lorecasterunable to mount location, failed to mount windows share02:42
lorecasterstorage is moutned at /media/STORAGE02:43
lorecasteron the server02:43
lorecasterit's not a windows share02:43
Werenerdtsimpson: thanks.02:43
Werenerdwell, Samba is a windows share "technically"02:43
WerenerdSo DESKTOP & STORAGE on on the same computer, just different folders?02:44
szallorecaster: did you chown /media/STORAGE to your user?02:44
lorecasterSTORAGE is an entire 1.5gb disk... mounted at /media/STORAGE02:44
Werenerdszal: darn it, I was building up to that!02:44
lorecasterusers are identical... same UN and same PW... both have chmod 77702:44
=== garytang is now known as carlee

trancexplasma=panel ?02:47
Werenerdyes, but a lot of people really like pcfileman02:47
Werenerdit is what I used on GNOME 2 years ago.02:47
lorecasteri am using the default. have had no rason to change02:47
szallorecaster: when your stuff is mounted to /media/STORAGE -> chown -R yourUser:users /media/STORAGE02:48
lorecaster:| this is a FULL 1.5tb drive here... 8gb free02:48
Werenerdjust out of curiosity, instead of smb://server/share try smb://username@server/share02:49
lorecaster:| that worked!02:49
Werenerdlorecaster: which thing? Mine or szal02:50
lorecasterszal worked fine02:51
lorecasterbut it could have been a combination02:51
WerenerdOK then, then it was a permission based error and not a bug in nautilus. If szal's solution worked, it was most likely not chmod 77702:52
lorecasterback in a second02:52
WerenerdMaybe you didn't use the recursive option?02:52
lorecasterperhaps not... but it works fine now02:52
JuJuBeeCan someone help me get nfs-kernel-server started?  It won't start after a recent update02:53
szalWerenerd: just curious..  are you a normal human being and only become a nerd at full moon? :D02:53
lorecasterback shortly02:53
Werenerdszal, that is pretty close to the root of my nick name. Back when I was a blackbox user, alot of the guys on the #bb4win were very socially inept. I had a lot of social engagements at the time and actually do well with people02:54
WerenerdThey said I was like a werewolf, but a nerd. So werenerd I was thusly named02:54
WerenerdI Plus they didn't like my other handle, BigDaddy. They said it reminded them of homosexual innuendo.02:55
WerenerdI told them that not too many people call a 315lbs weight lift homo.02:55
WerenerdI am going to test my dual monitor setup and see if it sticks after a X restart. brb.03:00
Werenerdsweet. that was really ticking me off. Now all is better.03:07
lorecasterWerenerd: know how i can split a 22" wide screen into 2 regions?03:07
Werenerdyou mean like two desktops on one screen?03:08
Werenerdnever thought of trying that03:08
Werenerdnever heard of anyone thinking of trying that either.03:08
lorecasteri have 2 monitors... i want to split my 22" wide screen into two square monitors :P03:09
WerenerdWhat would be the application of this?03:09
Werenerdso you can simulate roughly a 3 monitor setup?03:09
lorecasterso i can effectively maximize and multitask to new levels... to run 'fullscreen' applications in half a screen03:09
lorecasterexactly :)03:09
Werenerdyou do realize that 16:9/2 does not equal 4:303:10
lorecaster8/9 i realize... nearly square03:10
Werenerdewww... this has been done before. It required nesting x servers. ewww03:12
lorecasterthe first ewww sold me :P03:13
lorecasteri'll pass then03:13
Werenerdwhat kind of fullscreen apps?03:13
Roeyhey all... why does my SD card suddenly not identify teh filesystem when I use 'mount'??03:13
RoeyAlso,  when I run Skype, my digital spdif output signal dies.  Why so?03:13
lorecasterwine and dosbox games :D for example03:13
WerenerdWell with wine, you can set up the virtual desktop to be eactly half the screen and then manually size the other window03:15
Werenerdnot exactly what you wanted, but it would work. The wine app would be in fullscreen mode03:16
Werenerddoes anyone here run a FTP server?03:17
lorecasteri do03:18
lorecasterwhat can i do ya for? you['ve been so very helpful for me03:18
WerenerdWhat server do you run? ProFTP?03:18
lorecasterincidentally, i'm looking for a webmaster to build some webpages, insuch a way as i can maintain them... any takers, e-mail r.gosse@zero-impact.ca :D03:18
lorecasterit's a linux based server from www.justhost.com :D not sure what THEY run, but any FTP client can attach to it. unlimited space and bandwidth... what do you need Werenerd?03:19
WerenerdI have run ProFTP server for my family to grab picures, videos and just about anything they wanted from me. But the GUI frontend for ProFTP just isn't that great. I was hoping for something like Filezilla server for linux. Just no luck finding it03:20
lorecasteri used to use filezilla for linux... should be right in the repositories03:21
lorecasterit was for jaunty03:21
lorecasterjust do the software center... and type in filezilla :D in koala03:21
Werenerdthat is the client only. The FTP server is windows only03:22

RoeyHey all... why does my SD card suddenly not identify teh filesystem when I use 'mount'??  Also,  when I run Skype, my digital spdif output signal dies.  Why so?04:05
szalRoey: (1) memory cards can go bad any time; check file system for corruption; (2) iirc, Skype still doesn't run natively on ALSA, instead using OSS, though not sure what role Pulseaudio plays at that point..  my guess is that Skype takes over the sound device (which most probably is not hardware-mixing-capable) completely04:09
Roeyszal:  I checked it in my camera and it's fine.04:09
Roeyszal:  Ahhh, so Skype has issues and it's their problem, not mine, got it.04:09
Roeyszal:  I tried 'aoss skype' to pipe OSS-based apps through ALSA and had the same problem04:10
Roeybtw, I can mount my SD card fine but for some reason the System Notifications tray applet doesn't pick up on this... why not?04:11
Roeyszal:  I was trying to mount /dev/sdd instead of /dev/sdd1  (guess I was forgetful there ;)04:12
Roeyszal:  but KDE still does not pick up on the device insertion/removal, even though dmesg sees it fine.04:12
* szal never had the system tray notification applet come up when mounting memory cards04:13
Roeyso you stick your card in, and nothing happens?04:14
Roeythat's what I'm observing here on my system.04:14
RoeyI only tried to mount it manually through the command-line after I failed to see the notification in KDE after putting my SD card in.04:14
RoeyDo I (the user) need to be a member of any particular group in /etc/group?04:14
szalno, I stick the card in and the device plugging handler comes up notifying me of that04:17

mty2kI get and install kde4 themes/icons using kde, but i never knew they actually get installed in my home directory under ./kde4/share... meaning if i deleted the user the icons and themes would go. how can i make them system wide??09:07
Chaituwell am downloading cmake now. but how to have cmake in $path is something I dont know.09:07
leaf-sheepChaitu: You can "sudo aptitude install cmake"09:07
Chaituoh ok09:08
leaf-sheepChaitu: Always check the repository first.  If it's not there, then oh well, you'll have to install/configure first.09:08
leaf-sheepChaitu: 1) Check the repo --> "sudo aptitude search cmak"   Is it there? Yes. Install it. "sudo aptitude install cmake" You're done.09:08
Chaituyes. it gave me results for sudo aptitude install cmake and its installing now.09:09
leaf-sheepmty2k: Try "sudo updatedb ; locate kde4 | grep share" -- You might find the path.09:10
leaf-sheepmty2k: Should be in /usr/share/ -->09:11
mty2kleaf-sheep: then i copy the themes in my home directory there?09:13

Smurphym4rtin: didn't know a remote autocompletion existed at all ... Eventually it only works if you have authorized+keys setup ..11:15
m4rtinSmurphy: thanks for the reply. Yes, it exists and worked fine in my Jaunty setup. I have setup authorized_keys (have key based login)... although I'm using RSA rather than my previous DSA setup... is that likely to be it?11:17

ubuntu_say hai...12:49
Tm_Thi hi12:49
ubuntu_iam new user12:49
Tm_Tubuntu_: welcome, are you already familiar with our channel?12:49
ubuntu_no... can help me ?12:50
szalwith what?12:50
szalwe can't read your mind12:50
Tm_Tszal: (:12:50
szalrork: why yet?  are you developing such skills? ;)12:51
ubuntu_can you tell me how to enable desktop effect on kubuntu ?12:51
Tm_Tubuntu_: shortly, read topic, stay polite and have fun (: (and you can freely ask the real question without asking if you can ask)12:51
Tm_Tubuntu_: what kind of display card you have?12:52
ubuntu_intel gma...12:52
szalubuntu_: Systemsettings -> Desktop Effects -> tick the checkbox..  requires 3D-enabled gfx driver to be installed12:52
ubuntu_where i can get those menu ?12:53
ubuntu_oooo... thanks...12:56
ubuntu_my intel gma natively support12:56
rorkszal: it shouldn't be too hard: we could've registered ubuntu_ staring at the desktopeffects screenshots for a long time, then heading to the settingspage trying to check the disabled checkbox and do a google search. A webcam can register his emotions. Then his question would be obvious.13:05
szalwell, that's not exactly mind-reading..13:05
tim-using 9.10, i cant make wireless work with a non-broadcast ssid to save my life... i have tried switching over to wicd and still no luck. anyone have any advice?13:06
ubuntu_ok ok thanks13:06
m4rtinSmurphy: if you are still there, I have got it fixed, but it involved detailed hacking of the /etc/bash_completion.d/ssh file13:06
m4rtinandreas__: was that at me?13:07
andreas__do u tink so?13:07
m4rtinwell, I wasn't sure if you were implying that I should have found another, cleaner solution or if you were addressing that general groan to the previous conversation13:08
andreas__i said:: uUuH..!!13:09
andreas__i haven't read the previous conversation13:09
andreas__what's about?13:10
RoeyRiddell:  heya13:12
r00t_ninjatim-: how are you doing it?13:12
Roeythere's this weird thing with udev as of the latest version13:12
r00t_ninjano usb?13:12
tim-r00t_ninja: outside of having no wireless i am well.. thanks13:13
RoeyRiddell:  the notifier applet doesn't pick up on newly-inserted SD card, even though I can see the kernel notices it when I do dmesg13:13
r00t_ninjatim-: is your wireless card working?13:13
r00t_ninjabut you just cant connect to hidden ssids?13:13
tim-r00t_ninja: seems to be. when i first start wicd it sees them and says they are <hidden> but i cant attach to them13:14
ghostcubesounds like wicd this has the prob too13:14
RiddellRoey: we still use hal (not the new devicekit/udev stuff)13:14
tim-all of mine are hidden so I dont have one to test otherwise13:14
r00t_ninjahave you tried using knetworkmanager?13:14
RiddellRoey: so it could be a bug anywhere in linux/hal/solid/applet13:14
r00t_ninjaclick the network manager icon in the sys tray and then do connect to other with13:15
RiddellRoey: it works generally (if it didn't we'd get loads of complaints) so something funny in your situation I'm afraid, has it ever worked in karmic for you?13:15
r00t_ninjaand click connect13:15
llutzm4rtin: "dpkg -S  /etc/bash_completion.d/ssh" should tell you, what package to file the bug to13:15
tim-r00t_ninja: knetworkmanager wouldnt work at all. i tried adding the ssid quite a few times to no luck13:16
tim-if you think it would be helpful i can reinstall it (wicd removed it i believe)13:16
r00t_ninjaim not sure13:16
r00t_ninjacan you see any other aps?13:16
RoeyRiddell:  well I thought it must be udev (given my limited knowledge of it) because it happened as soon as I upgraded these packages yesteday morning: http://pastebin.com/m385a7cb13:16
tim-yes, i see a neighbors by name, but it has web turned on13:17
r00t_ninjaso your wireless card is working13:17
tim-the other odd thing, wicd only sees them until i try to attach to one then it never lists them again13:17
RoeyRiddell:  (if that answers your question)13:17
m4rtinllutz: thank you13:19
RiddellRoey: hmm, I should do an upgrade and check that's not a general issue then13:19
Roeythank so much Jonathan13:19
tim-is there another network mangager? wicd seems a bit weak13:19
ghostcubehmm wicd is fine so far what do you mean with weak ?13:20
tim-ghostcube: well.. for 1 it doesnt work13:20
RoeyRiddell:  again, the behavior I observed is that even though 'dmesg' shows that the kernel detected /dev/sdd1 once I slipped my SD card into the reader, I saw no pop-up from KDE's notification applet13:20
tim-but i am not able to preconfigure SSIDs either13:21
ghostcubetim-: you checked the interfaces files13:21
ghostcubelike described on wicd age ?13:21
ghostcubetim-: nah ssids that are unvisible seem to make linux trouble i cant get mine working too doesnt matter what network manager i use13:21
ghostcube*page not age13:21
tim-ghostcube: i must have missed that part.. which page is that one (i just found a forum post re: wicd)13:22
ghostcubea bit strange its menioned on download page13:22
Smurphym4rtin: cool :)13:24
tim-yeah, that is an off place for it, but i have that part covered13:24
m4rtinSmurphy: going to take the dive and submit my first patch :)13:24
tim-i havent ever had this problem before... how do i switch back to knetworkmanager?13:24
Koliaszal: you were right, as i was using gdm, it was not loading the shutdown/restart buttons13:25
Koliathanks for the clue13:26
crissi_ok so i fail.   i accidentally removed my panel that held my open applications.. and now cannot figure out how to make it come back.  I have googled, and cant find exactly what im looking for.  Maybe im not asking the right question. I dont know.13:53

SiVA_really loving the new kubuntu... KDE is much more stable since the last time I tried it14:04
SiVA_one problem I have is, when I hit alt-tab (and hold down alt to cycle), it takes a few milliseconds too many for the switcher to display14:05
SiVA_it gets in the way after using it 100 times each day... how can I make the switcher display instantly?14:06
SmurphySiVA_: Guess it's an issue with your 3D acceleration. what graphic chip you have ?14:06
SiVA_128MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 8400M GS14:07
SiVA_I can play 3d games just fine14:07
SiVA_oh wait... I haven't tried yet since I reinstalled14:07
SmurphySiVA_: Have you installed the restricted drivers ? and - make sure you install the backported modules...14:09
=== r00t_ninja is now known as r00t_ninj|a
SiVA_Smurphy: i'll check it out. not sure what you mean by backported modules14:10
=== r00t_ninj|a is now known as r00t_ninja
SmurphySiVA_: Backported modules are kernel drivers from the development branch. usually they fix quite some bugs that are not in the official release.14:11

OpenMaster_Is there in linux a "path for shared libraries" ?14:12
OpenMaster_( kubuntu 9.10 )14:12
chaitucan anyone help me with fonts in firefox please?14:12
SmurphyOpenMaster_: check the file: /etc/ld.so.conf - all in there. After you modify it, update the cache file with ldconfig14:13
Smurphychaitu: What's the issue ?14:14
chaituFonts are messedup in firefox Smurphy. I realize its  a known issue but not sure how to go about it14:14
SmurphyHm. easiest is really to dump the firefox configuration then.14:15
=== r00t_ninja is now known as r00t_ninj|a
chaituwhich browser do you suggest?  I mean Iam done with trying to fix firefox...14:15
SmurphyI am using Konqueror most of the time.14:15
Smurphyand have no issues with firefox ;)14:16
chaitulol cool14:16
geniiArora is coming along as well14:17
OpenMaster_Smurphy: I need to add this library "libaacskeys.so" ; where should I put that file?14:17
SiVA_whats the equivalent of add-apt-repository for aptitude?14:18
lorecasteryesterday, some good samaritines helped me with samba... anyone here willing to help me out?14:19
chaituSmurphy:  How do we install new themes using menu? when I go to desktop settings and download new themes I dont see them in the drop down box.. can ya help me there?14:19
Smurphychaitu: You probably download themes that are not compatible, e.g. wrong version. try some more until you find a version that works. Send a Bug report to the maintainer of the site ..14:22
chaituSmurphy: Am clicking on the "get new themes" button and it gives me a list. I thought they gotta be compactable when shown in the list?14:23
SmurphyOpenMaster_: /usr/local/lib and make sure /usr/local/lib is in the /etc/ld.so.conf file. run ldconfig after the file is in place and the /etc/ld.so.conf file are updated, and you should be done.14:24
Smurphychaitu: thought that too the first time I tried ... :}14:24
chaituo0 :) any good site you recomend for kde themes Smurphy?14:24
OpenMaster_Thanks Smurphy :)14:25
Smurphychaitu: Nope sorry. I don't use themes - they slow down the desktop....14:26

lorecasterSamba? Anyone? :P14:27
Smurphylorecaster: used samba the last time 5 years ago. sorry ...14:29
lorecasterwish i could say the same, Smurphy... this is a royal pain14:29
Smurphylorecaster: I stopped using samba and all Windows compatibility stuff because it was a PITA ... already back then.14:30
Smurphyusing NFS or sshfs. Later-one works for mac Os-X and windows (linux of course). So - I don' t care about sambe anymore14:30
lorecasteri need to share some folders between two koala machines... though i'd like to get a windows working...14:31
lorecasterwilling to give an SSHFS tutorial? :P though anything with SSH in it sounds scary and command-promptish14:31
lorecasteri'm getting a macbook after xmas... i should probably warm up to that one now14:31
Smurphylorecaster: all you relly have to do, is generate to private keys on all locations you want to have access on, and distribute the public component to the authorized keys section. then, access is transparent :)14:32
lorecaster:| it cannot be that simple.14:32
* genii sips his coffee and thinks about fish://14:32
lorecasterusing this, wise?14:33
Smurphylorecaster: yeah. kind of. I'm an old linux crowd (started back in early 1993), so I tend to do my own stuff ;)14:33
Smurphygenii: fish is working from linux to linux fine... Winblows is another matter ...14:34
lorecasteri'm a new seed... only been face-and-eyes into the linux world about a year... in 1993, i was in primary school. :P14:34
Smurphylorecaster: Well - I'm an old Crabe by now ;)14:34
lorecasterI just desire a solid, robust OS package to limit my stress... i'm currently enrolled in a university-plan to get my honours degre in english in 24 months. :S I want to limit my stress where I can.14:35
OpenMaster_Smurphy: in /etc/ld.so.conf there is only "include /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf"   should I add in another row "include /usr/local/lib" ? I missed to tell you that this librery is a 64bit lib14:36
chaituIt's great to see people helping newbies. One of the main reasons Linux has grown.... Thanks to all : )14:37
SmurphyOpenMaster_: Check what files exist in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ and if /usr/local/lib is not there, you can either copy one of the existing files in that directory and adapt it, or just add /usr/local/lib to the ld.so.conf file.14:37
lorecasteri whole heartedly agree... i'd have been foudn dangling in the pantry if no one was here to help me :D14:37
lorecasterI'm pretty close to self-sufficient now, by practice alone. this place (the default chat in KONVERSATION) is an amazing resource14:38
chaituI remember Redhat having a default package to handle .tar files... wish ubuntu has it14:38
FlootenkerpHi, I have a small issue. I deleted programs that were installed with wine, but not using the uninstaller. Now the folders are gone, but wine still shows them when I go under applications, wine, and programs.14:38
FlootenkerpAny way to remove them from the list?14:38
Smurphylorecaster: yeah. I did chat quite heavily in the past. nowadays I don't have that much time, but my pat Linux experience actually pays my salary. swo - it was a good choice I did in the past :014:39
chaituGood for you as its paying you. good for us as you are happy and helping ;-)14:39
lorecasteri'm terrified by the IT industry... i actually have a 2-year diploma in Computer Support Specialist... but the amoutn of material that you have to EAT in order to stay current scared me away from a job... adn we never saw linux ONCE in that course, not in a practical context14:40
lorecasterI have my users as part of the fuse group... now, do i need an SSH server?14:41
SiVA_installed Nvidia 190, and it appears faster. Thanks!14:42
lorecasteron that... SiVA_ i've got the 185 drivers installed, but are working fine. anyone recommend me installing the newest?14:43
Smurphylorecaster: you are right. I never finished University - as I saw it is bullshit regarding real life experience.14:45
SmurphyI did never regret not making any degree ;)14:45
lorecasterand Smurphy, i shunt all of my mundane tasks to my Dell... leaving my powerhouse computer to rendering, gaming, etc... should my dell be the sshserver?14:45
SiVA_lorecaster: well, KDE hardware drivers recommends it :). Actually I think it's the first non-beta nvidia drivers for linux14:45
lorecasteri use gnome :$14:46
lorecasterwhat command-line allows me to install 190? the hardware drivers GUI doesn't even list it;14:46

Smurphylorecaster: u need 190 driver for a specific reason ?14:52
* BluesKaj accepts coffee with gratitude14:52
lorecasternot particularly... i had asked the room, if 185 works fine, should i upgrade, and i was tossed a link. took it as a sign14:52
FlootenkerpI have a small issue. I deleted programs that were installed with wine, but not using the uninstaller. Now the folders are gone, but wine still shows them when I go under applications, wine, and programs.14:52
SiVA_my firefox fonts for the toolbars, and menu is really big14:52
* Smurphy slurs the coffe cup he just did ... :14:52
FlootenkerpAny way to remove them from the list? I deleted the folders, not uninstalled it, so I'm not sure how.14:52
Smurphylorecaster: using 185 here. no issues so far on a T61p :}14:53
lorecasterbut more important than that... Smurphy, I'd like this SSHFS thing sorted out... what system do i put the openssh-server on, my background-running server, or my mighty-powerhouse where the shares are located?14:53
geniiFlootenkerp: You might want to ask WINE-specific questions in their channel, ##winehq14:53

lorecasterSmurphy: installed on both boxes (i've got a half hour, so i'm good if you're in a hurry)15:06
=== TheKro_ is now known as TheKro
Smurphylorecaster: Just make sure you create on every box - for the user mounting the app, a ssh-key with ssh-keygen, and copy the public part of the key to the remove computer, and append it to the user receiving the connection in his authorized_keys file (usually in $home/.ssh/ directory)15:07
lorecasterSmurphy: and how would i go about all that? :P15:10
Smurphylorecaster: U usually mount the sshfs filesystem through a script in ~/.kde/Autostart - so every user can only mount his own files.15:11
Smurphyscp ? :)15:11

Smurphylorecaster: share them for world ? Not good ... :}15:15
lorecasterLOL, everyone on my network... i love saucy-faces, don't ever change. :D15:15
Smurphylorecaster: in that cas e- skip sshfs - use samba, and make sure you just share these openly. Should be a 2 liner in the sambe configuration15:15
lorecaster-rips hair out- lol, i get dizzy for all the directions you people throw me in :P15:16

=== seicherl_bob is now known as seicherlbob
seicherlbobhi there! I tried to run firefox 3.5 (kubuntu 9.10 AMD64, installed using apt) with profile mounted on samba share => failed (known issues with smbfs). Now i tried with sshfs => it starts, but extensions are not recognized properly. A local copy of the same profile works fine, so it is not an incompatibility issue. can i fix that or is it just impossible to have firefox profile on a remote fs (in linux, because it worked15:33
seicherlbobperfectly fine for years in windoze)??15:33
BluesKajseicherlbob, if I understand you correctly you are trying to use samba into a windows machine in Firefox ?15:39
seicherlbobwell... 2 OSs on 1 PC: MS and Kubuntu (dual boot). They should both use the same FF-Profile, which is located on a remote SMB server. Works with Windows, crashes in linux.15:40
xtrmzerohow do i mount a dvd on ubuntu?15:40
seicherlbobBluesKaj: I tried smbfs to mount it, which failes for known reasons since FF2.x. Now i tried sshfs => firefox starts, but has problems/cant use extensions.15:41
seicherlbobBluesKaj: i had the same setup for years on my laptop, but it used a local FAT partition. worked perfectly fine. Now i'd like to use a remote FS instead and its a pain!15:42
lorecasteri'm off, ttyl15:43
szalseicherlbob: if you dual-boot, you might want to consider using the profile directly from the Windows settings15:45
szalntfs-3g makes it possible ;)15:45
seicherlbobszal: well, I'd like to have my data on the server (backup and offline availability, etc.)15:46

BluesKajseicherlbob, szal , what about automounting the windows partition and the remote with fstab edit/entries ? or am I missing something ?15:51
seicherlbobBluesKaj: I would love to have the profile on the server, so i need some kind of remote file system. but neither smb/cifs nor sshfs works.15:52
BluesKajseicherlbob, what OS is your remote server using ?15:53
seicherlbobBluesKaj: debian15:53
BluesKajseicherlbob, have you considered openssh , and then using dolphin or konqueror to connect ?15:55
seicherlbobBluesKaj: its already mounted with sshfs15:56
BluesKajabd you're using FF to access the files ?15:58
seicherlbobBluesKaj: it's not about accessing files, its about the location of the profile15:58

BluesKajllutz, yeah but , the use of the word profile is confusing to me :)16:07
llutzBluesKaj: it the name firefox calls the user-settings16:08
llutzthey're stored in your "profile" ~/.mozilla....16:08
BluesKajllutz, but why use FF ?16:08
llutzBluesKaj: ff reads its configuration from that. it's not using ff to access it16:09
llutzBluesKaj: like bash is reading .bashrc on start, same thing16:09

garryi hope someone can help, when I go to Hardware Drivers it does not find any drivers for my Gfx card, nVidia GeForce 6200?17:10
crayfishgarry: I tend to download the linux drivers direct from nvidia, they tend to be more up to date anyway17:12
garrycrayfish: thanks, will do, are there good instructions on how to install them, i'm new to linux17:13
crayfishgarry: they're pretty self explanatory normally, just run the .bin file from the command line and it's all ascii-GUI from there17:13
garrycrayfish: thanks! :D hopefully I'll be able to get it running quickly17:14
garrystrange, konqueror keeps notifying me to install extra packages, but when I start the download the package installer says they are already installed?17:22
garrycrayfish: i've downloaded the driver, but when I try to run "sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.31-pkg1.run" it says it can't open the file, I am in the directory it is stored in...17:27

ubottugarry: For Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto17:32
Tm_Tgarry: if there's no real reason, you should use packaged drivers17:32
slawcioTm_T: nvidia doesn't have source of drivers, it isn't open17:33
Tm_Tslawcio: but ubuntu has those drivers packaged17:33
garryTm_T: thanks, surely the latest nVidia drivers would be better and get the most from my Gfx card? *confused*17:33

=== deniz is now known as Guest37710
Tm_Tgarry: which Ubuntu version you have?17:36
garryTm_T: do they? I don't know, i'm new to Linux. If I was on Windows I would install drivers from the manufacturer instead of using the vga drivers provided, why not on Linux aswell?17:36
Tm_Tgarry: because it's easier just to use what Ubuntu provides, no unneeded steps17:37
garryTm_T: I see your point, however there must be a strong case for using proprietary drivers or they wouldn't exist? I just want to see what difference they would make...17:38
Tm_Tgarry: and ubuntu provides those proprietary drivers for you, that's what I'm trying to tell you17:39
Tm_Tgarry: what Ubuntu version do you have?17:40
garryTm_T: Kubuntu 9.1017:41
Tm_Tgarry: ah, then all should be easy17:41
Tm_Tgarry: you just need to run hardware drivers manager17:42
garryTm_T: That was my first port of call, but after searching for drivers it shows nothing..17:43
Tm_Tgarry: hmmmmm, I think I know what's wrong, as I don't know how this step can be done with current GUI tools, I'll just tell you how to do it in commandline17:44
Tm_Tgarry: open Konsole and run this command: "sudo apt-get update"17:44

mackensun java 6 plugin should make it work. make sure to restart your browser17:49
Tm_Tgarry: it updated your package lists, so your system know what packages are available17:49
Tm_Tgarry: normal updater and installer tools does the same thing17:50
blaisdellbyes that is true17:50
garryTm_T: ah... good stuff, I think this may have also solved my other issues with installing the konqueror addons that the notifications keep popping up for...17:51

mackenno u can have both installed. I do17:54
petsoundsmacken : ok thanks, ill let you know if it works17:55
mackenpetsounds>firefox3.5 can still do funny things. As a test use epiphany. It usually works not matter what.17:59

oobegenii, thanks nvidia drivers told me to change to run level 3 when i tried it tryed to startx which froze my pc so i installed the drivers in runlevel 1 against warnings18:28

oobecause i do things differently18:30
slawciooobe: your nick is from 'out of body experience'?18:30
macodo you consider that a good reason?18:30
oobeinfact i dont like most of the thing *buntu is doing these days and each upgrade takes a lot of work to make my system acceptable18:30
petsoundsmacken : it's work with openJDK.. :)18:31
geniioobe: The usual practice would be to go to the KDM or GDM login screen and choose "console login" option, from there stop even the login manager with sudo /etc/init.d/?dm stop         do the nvidia stuff which requires X to be stopped while doing it, then restart the login manager18:31
oobeslawcio, no its just oobe it can stand for that or out of box experience18:31
oobegenii, yeah thats what i usually do but for some reason it would freeze this time18:31

=== dendrobates is now known as dendro-afk
jcanadawill I continue to get kernel updates and such with 8.04?19:05
Mamarokjcanada: yes, since it is LTS, as I said, it's only the KDE3 part that is not supported by us anymore19:05

=== gaurav__ is now known as Guest68274
jcanadais it common understanding that there is no chance of kde 3.5.11?19:12
Mamarokjcanada: the KDE developers do not maitain it anymore, for most of the parts, no19:12
Mamarokjcanada: read the wiki page I gave you, please19:12
Mamarokjcanada: and you shoult at least fire up a live CD and have a look at KDE 4.3.2 to know what you miss19:13
jcanadayeah, that's true, it might have been 4.1 I tried last..19:13
Mamaroktehkx: qtcurve is not a plasma style19:13
tehkxI understand that, I am using the air style. I mean qt style.19:14
antlarrjcanada: indeed, 4.3.2 is really a lot better and more stable than 4.119:14
Mamarokwrong, not a plsma theme19:14
tehkxIf I set my qt style in System settings plasma-desktop crashes on load19:14
antlarrbut that talk about kde3 reminds me, that taskjuggler needs kdepimlibs from kde3 to get all its functionality, and since kde3 is no longer included, taskjuggler doesn't have ical support which is a pity19:15
Mamaroktehkx: qtcurve is just a compatibility layer for GTK applications, not a plasma theme19:15

jcanadaI think it might even be on the 9.10 remix I have (kde 4.3 that is), I might have to restart and check that out19:17
Mamaroktehkx: no, idea, sorry19:17
tehkxqtcurve is meant to be used on its own, not just in gtk-engines-qtcurve form, since it is a style19:17

bbeckAh, I see the problem there's no karmic repository for amarok-nightly.19:36
amgarchIn9hi, everybody! Those of you who have installed Kubuntu 9.10 from scratch, which login manager do you get un start up. GDM or KDM? There is something realy broken about their cooperation.19:38
amgarchIn9in my installation at least19:39
Tm_TamgarchIn9: Kubuntu installs KDM by default19:39
inspiron630best way to burn an iso in linux19:40
amgarchIn9Tm_T:  is then gdm installed by default on kubuntu? dpkg -l gdm19:41
jcanadainspiron:  k3b is great!19:41
Tm_TamgarchIn9: no, Kubuntu doesn't install GDM by default19:41
Tm_TamgarchIn9: user ofcourse can install it later on19:42
amgarchIn9Tm_T:  so this may be the reason their staying in the way of each other was not largely exposed.19:42
Tm_TamgarchIn9: possibly19:43
micmordin Kubuntu (or more in general KDE 4.x) which piece of software can I use to record voice from input line like a microphone?19:43
Tm_TamgarchIn9: wouldn't make any sense to have them both there by default19:43
amgarchIn9Tm_T: "dpkg-recofigure gdm" used to work before to switch between the two. Now doesnt.19:44
Tm_TamgarchIn9: shame I cannot help on that, have you searched bug reports?19:44
amgarchIn9Tm_T: can you confirm gdm is not installed on your system? I am going to try to remove it and see what happens.19:45
Tm_TamgarchIn9: I don't have Karmic installed, but if I had, I would know what is installed and I'm 100 % sure GDM is not installed in Kubuntu by default19:46
Tm_Twouldn't make any sense in my mind19:46
tehkx_can plasma work with any style other than oxygen?19:46
tehkx_qt style that is19:47
Tm_Ttehkx_: should19:47
tehkx_gah it is as bad as I though https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kdebase-workspace/+bug/433028 I would think a bug like this would be a show stopper19:48
Tm_Ttehkx_: let's see...19:49
tehkx_plasma-desktop just refuses to reload with kleer or cleanlooks. I just doesnt make sense.19:50
tehkx_It works with cde, and oxygen19:51
tehkx_wait it doesnt even work with cde, just oxygen19:52
tehkx_perhaps it is this microblogging thing kubuntu throws on my desktop19:53
Tm_Ttehkx_: could be, try without it19:54
tehkx_Well, there it is.19:54
tehkx_Talk about a simple problem being released. Here is what was happening. The microblogging thing kubuntu has on the desktop by default has a button that says "Configure".19:55

amgarchIn9so people, there is a version of gdm package already in karmic-proposed that does not respect user choice between kdm/gdm. It seems to trying to start gdm uncoditionally. There is a race between the two (if kde was chosen). Kdm does not always win.20:17

Ahox_Hi, is there a native voip client for KDE?20:38
marc__Hello, i installed Kubuntu 9.1, no shortcut for changing desktop ?20:38
Ahox_marc__, what do you mean with that?20:41
Ahox_Do you want to use gnome now?20:41
marc__to change desktop with the keyboard : alt+Ctr+arrow don't work20:43
marc__but i'm a newbee on kde20:43
Ahox_marc__ I see, kubuntu has only one desktop by default20:44
marc__I configure to have 4 desktops20:44
marc__only to have cube rotation effect, but it doesn't work20:45
Ahox_you can set the keyboard shortcut in the system settings / Keyboard & Mouse / Global Keyboard Shortcuts20:46
Ahox_then pick KWin and Next Desktop20:46
marc__ok i try, thanks20:47
Ahox_Ctrl+F1... should work, too20:47
marc__ok thanks Ctrl+F1-4 it's perfect for me20:48
marc__i activated cube on 3D effecte but i doesn't work. An idea ?20:49
Ahox_Have you activated the cube effects, too?20:50
Ahox_and I assume your 3D effects work in general ;-)20:50
marc__Yes the 3d effects works20:51
marc__I check witch option is enabled20:51
Ahox_So you should have Desktop Cube and Desktop Cube Animation20:51
Ahox_Actually, what happens if you press Ctrl+F11?20:52
marc__Ctrl F11 make the desktop smaller20:53
Ahox_Press Ctrl+F11 and the click the mouse and move it20:53
Ahox_This should be your cube20:53
marc__Yesssss,   ok thanks20:53

clustermagnetmaco do you mind answeing an nvidia config issue? :)21:36
clustermagnetdual screen setup... would love to configure both monitors, however nvidia-settings isnt working properly for me21:37
clustermagnethow do you guys change your desktop settings :)21:37
lukashello, i have installed ubuntu 9.10. i can remeber a pop up which asked for commercial driver in 9.04. How do I activate it in 9.10?21:37
Ahox_lukas, its the Hardware Drivers Program, just type those two words in the krunner (Alt+F2)21:38
clustermagnetthe actual problem is i cant save the nvidia-settings to /etc/X11/config... i'll dig around though :)21:39
clustermagnetmaco thanks for the heads up with lvm though :)21:39
clustermagneti was like... really?  no lvm21:39
macoclustermagnet: i dont use nvidia, just intel, so no idea21:39
llutzclustermagnet: write it to file, copy to /etc/X11/xorg.conf manually21:39
Ahox_clustermagnet, try to run it with sudo21:39
lorecasterany of the new speakers familiar with NFS?21:39
lukasAhox_: is it jockey-gtk? i have ubuntu and thus no krunner.21:39
macoer, there is no xorg.conf in 9.10 by default21:39

XiellaI can't load kubuntu (karmic).  I was able to get past the grub loading screen but now it reads [drm:intelfb_restore] *ERROR* Failed to restore crtc configuration -22.  How do I load kubuntu graphically?21:48
Ahox_Xiella, this sounds like your xorg.conf is borked21:49
geniiintel framebuffer for console21:49
Ahox_boot into rescue mode and select fix X server21:49
XiellaAhox_: Do you mean selecting the 'safe mode' option at the grub loading screen?21:49
XiellaAhox_: I see a recovery menu but none of them is select fix X server21:50
lorecastersorry Ahox_, my problem is that even though i did a recursive chmod and chown to both folders, they are shared through the gui and samba works fine... but one folder works, the other does not.21:51
lorecasteri'll do whatever you think could help, command-for-command :P21:51
pookito777 <pookito777> I use to have Kubuntu now that I decided to switch to Sabayon 5.0 I had my /home in a separate partition.  Now that I have sabayon mount that partition I can not have access to my old directory because it is encrypted.  when I go to the folder as root I find Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop and it is not allowing me.  I was asked in the sabayon irc to ask kubuntu irc how is the directory encrypted?  Please help21:51
Ahox_Xiella, sorry I don't have a 2nd pc right here to check the precise commands, can you try a root console and then mv the /etc/X11/xorg.conf to somewhere else and reboot?21:52
Ahox_lorecaster: wait, are we talking about NFS or Samba?21:52
XiellaAhox_: Sorry: the options are clean, dpkg, grub, netroot (Drop to root shell prompt with networking) and root (Drop to root shell prompt).  I guess I should choose root21:53
Ahox_Xiella: root sounds good21:53
Ahox_netroot should work, too...21:53
XiellaAhox_: Thanks.  Can I move the /etc/X11/xorg.conf just anywhere?21:54
Ahox_yes, I would recommend just renaming it to xorg.conf.old or so21:54
XiellaAhox_: whoa21:55
clustermagnetmaco: in kubuntu... how does one enable 3d desktop? :)21:55
XiellaAhox_: Oh, I didn't type sudo.  It says "mv: cannot stat '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' : no such file or directory21:55
clustermagnetdo you have to install compiz via apt-get?21:55
macoclustermagnet: kwin has 3d stuff built in21:55
macoclustermagnet: kickoff menu -> systemsettings -> desktop21:55
Ahox_mhm, this is possible and actually the default - X11 can be run configless21:56
clustermagnetmaco: i've been away from the 3d desktop world ... so compiz is what people use these days?21:56
clustermagnetthere used to be berryl21:56
Ahox_so that's not the problem then21:56
macoclustermagnet: beryl was a compiz fork. they remerged into compiz-fusion. kwin, in the meantime, acquired many of its most exciting features21:56
Ahox_clustermagnet: systemsettings / Desktop / Enable Desktop Effects21:57
Ahox_Xiella, can you post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?21:57
XiellaAhox_: Can you explain to me how to do that?  I'm still in root in safe mode.21:58
Ahox_good point, you need netroot for that21:58
XiellaAhox_: How do I get back to the selection menu to get to netroot?21:59
Ahox_just reboot21:59
XiellaAhox_: Ah, thank you, doing that now21:59
XiellaAhox_: Alright, I am in netroot now.  How should I post my /var/log/Xorg.0.log?22:00
Ahox_Thought, I have to leave now, sorry. You can upload the file by installing the package pastebinit and then run # pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log22:00
XiellaAhox_: Ah! I type "# pastebinit [address]" after installing it?22:01
Ahox_maybe someone else can take over? Yes, I am talking to you, pack of 31022:01
Ahox_well, withouth the #22:01
Ahox_and then just post the output from the script22:01
Ahox_but i really have to go now, good luck22:01
XiellaAhox_: Oh, okay.  Thank you lots in the meantime.  I think i'll need someone to help me.22:01

FlootenkerpHi, does anyone here use mupen64? I want to get that running, but the screen just goes dark when I start emulation.22:17
BlommpferMaybe rephrasing it: Where does KDE store per-user file association data?22:19
MamarokBlommpfer: all users stuff is in /home/user22:20
Mamarokand its subdirectories22:20
BlommpferMamarok: Yes...yes that is right. But I need that specific file or set of files rather :P22:20
MamarokBlommpfer: if you want system defaults with no user data at all, move or erase ~/.kde/22:21
BlommpferI don't want to wipe out the entire KDE data folder due to other configurations that would be a mess to recover.22:21
MamarokBlommpfer: be aware that you will loose a lot of date if you erase that, like all mails from kmail, etc22:21
BlommpferSo that's why I just want to reset associations.22:21
Mamarokwhat associations are you talking about?22:21
carpiii think its in $HOME/.kde/share or something22:22
carpiii seem to remember editing a file for assocs ages ago22:22
BlommpferSystem settings > advanced tab >file associations22:22
MamarokBlommpfer: you mean configuration stuff? that's in ~/.kde/share/config/22:22
MamarokBlommpfer: but file associations are not users specific22:23
BlommpferYes, but which are the specific files for this, do you know?22:23
MamarokBlommpfer: isn't there a default reset button ?22:23
* Mamarok checks22:23
BlommpferMamarok: In a way yes, I used several things since KDE4.0 came out and some are obsoleted or would take ages to reorder so I prefer that.22:23
BlommpferThere is, but never did anything.22:23
BlommpferUnless it was magically fixed this month let me see just in case.22:24
MamarokBlommpfer: just erase that folder, it will reset all configuration stuff22:24
Mamarokit doesn't erase mail or such, just configuration22:24
BlommpferNo it doesn't work, still grayed out xD22:24
Mamaroklet me see...22:24
BlommpferYes that's what I want to do, but I wanted to know the specific files that set those user settings over defaults.22:25
Mamarokyou mean specifically the file associations? that can only be done by the admin22:25
BlommpferI am the admin.22:25
Mamarokso start the sytemsettings with 'kdesudo systemsettings' and you will have the rights22:25
BlommpferWith kdesu? It will then make me root user, not my normal use usr.22:26
Mamarokno, kdesudo, read what I wrote above22:26
FlootenkerpDoes anyone here run mupen64? I want to get it running, but the screen just blacks up when I start emulation and nothing happens. Does anyone know the issue?22:27
MamarokBlommpfer: you as a user are not admin, you only get admin rights when running stuff with sudo (or kdesudo for GUI applications)22:27
MamarokFlootenkerp: sorry, don't even know what that is22:27
BlommpferA nintendo 64 emulator.22:27
Flootenkerpnintendo 64 emulator for linux22:27
Mamaroknever uses that, sorry22:28
BlommpferMamarok: Anyway, I know the basics up to "coding OSS stuff" so I just need to know which files to delete without deleting the whole folder. Do you know them, then?22:29
BlommpferFlootenkerp: Sorry, I know it but haven't used it since 2004 or so...22:29
Flootenkerpit's fine, I'll try their forums22:29
BlommpferAnyway it might be the video plugin not configured right.22:30
MamarokBlommpfer: you still want to reset the file associations?22:30
BlommpferOr you can try, just in case, disabling kwin compositing and see if it shows something.22:30
BlommpferYou can suspend it with alt+shift+f12 IIRC22:30
BlommpferMamarok: Yes. I have things that have been here for years or programs that are deprecated in favor of others and so...I can manually configure it, but it would take at least a few hours xD22:31
MamarokBlommpfer: then do what I told you above: kdesudo systemsettings and set the file associations to default22:31
BlommpferSo I thought that I'd just clean them up and just add the new ones while having the rest to system, which is what deleting the files will do.22:32
Mamarok*sigh* then you will have to have a look at the config folder and look at the file names, those are self-explaing usually22:33
BlommpferMamarok: Nope, it logs me as root with root's associations.22:33
MamarokI don't really have time to look that up and it would take me as much time as it takes you :) resetting the file associations to default with the above methode works22:34
MamarokBlommpfer: *sigh* I give up22:34
=== Vlado9A3CY_ is now known as Vlado9A3CY
BlommpferNo because I don't use my file browser as root, but as another user.22:34
MamarokBlommpfer: for the third time, if you want to reset the file associations, do as I said above22:34
Mamarokonly root can do that, not the user22:35
BlommpferAnd I did and I appear in an unthemed config window that is root's.22:35
Mamarokhow difficult is that to understand?22:35
Mamarokdid you even try?22:35
BlommpferOK, do it and tell me what you see.22:35
BlommpferOf course, but it logs me as root because that is what kdesudo does.22:35
BlommpferWant a screenshot? I am not lying.22:36
MamarokBlommpfer: I know, but you need to be root to reset to default settings!22:36
Mamarokthat's the 4th time I tell you22:36
BlommpferTo reset my USER settings? No, I need to do it as that specific user.22:36
MamarokBlommpfer: you were asking for the file associations22:37
BlommpferYeah, but those are stored within /home/myuser/.kde , not /root/.kde22:37
BlommpferI don't want to alter system defaults.22:37
=== r00t_ninja is now known as r00t_ninj|a
Mamarokwell, then search your ~/.kde/share/config folder, it's in there and I don't know that by heart, never did that22:37
Mamarokas I said, the file names are self explaining, somethingrc, open those ( those are text files) and have a look)22:38
kblinhi folks22:38
=== r00t_ninj|a is now known as r00t_ninja
BlommpferI mean, it kind of bothers me, as that advice you were giving me was something that would really confuse a newbie. Someone not knowing how users work would just do it and find nothing changed then say "linux sucks" and call it a day.22:39
kblinis there a way to make 9.10 reboot the box when I select "reboot" that will allow me to touch the grub prompt?22:39
adaptrkblin: you can always access the grub prompt22:39
MamarokBlommpfer: well, for a newsbie, setting thigs to system defaults means erasing the ~.kde/share/config/ folder and restarting KDE, as simple as that22:40
lorecasterNFS for file sharing anyone? lookin to sort out some permission errors... i'm not green, but this bugger is illusive22:40
BlommpferAnd there goes his mail and contacts.22:40
kblinadaptr: no, if I hit reboot in my 9.10, I see the "shutting down" bootsplash thing, then my monitor switches to black for a second or two, and then I'm back at the "booting" bootsplash22:40
BlommpferOr custom window settings or so. Another "linux sucks" reaction that would cause.22:41
MamarokBlommpfer: not at all, the mails are not in the config folder, those are in the apps folder22:41
adaptrkblin: hit ESC when it goes black, your monitor simply isn't fast enough22:41
BlommpferRemember .kde was mentioned first.22:41
MamarokBlommpfer: well, sorry, but I am tired and don't have the patience tonight for that, talk to someone else22:41
kblinadaptr: but usually I have a 10s timeout22:41
MamarokBlommpfer: read the backlog, I said "move", not erase, and gave a warning22:41
adaptrkblin: on Ubuntu ? it's been a few seconds for ages22:41
kblinadaptr: not if you have a dual boot setup, I'm pretty sure about having ten seconds22:42
BlommpferIt's not like an average user knows how to dissect that huge folder and put stuff back into the new one.22:42
adaptrkblin: then you need to edit you rmenu.lst and put it back the way it was22:42
* Mamarok has better things to do22:42
BlommpferHey I am not upset or anything, just discussing.22:43
kblinadaptr: but I'm only seeing this when I hit reboot in kde22:43
MamarokBlommpfer: and that has nothing to do in this channel, discussions belong to -offtopic, read the topic22:43
kblinif I just boot normally, I have the prompt22:43
BlommpferMamarok: Oops. Understood, ahem. Sorry.22:44
adaptrkblin: difference between cold boot and warm boot, then22:44
kblinyeah, I guess so22:44
kblinbut that only came up after updating to 9.10, so I was wondering what was causing this22:45
kblinit's a bit annoying :)22:45
kblinnope, as I said, I upgraded from 9.04, system stays at grub1 then22:46
adaptrkblin: 9.10 uses a new version of grub, so all bets, they be off22:46
kblinI'm being a selfish bastard and prefer to let other people find the grub2 and ext4 bugs first befor switching myself :)22:47
