ZeikfriedWtf is CPU scaling?00:00
sithlord48when u cpu changes speed based on its power state00:01
ZeikfriedWell, lemme change my question a bit.00:01
ZeikfriedI have teh Gnome Power Manager installed from doing apt-get ubuntu-desktop.00:01
BluesKajondemand and performance are the steps I use00:01
ZeikfriedWould i be able to remove teh Gnome Power Manager, and use the KDE version instead?00:02
macopowerdevil should control things while youre in kde00:02
macoeven if g-p-m is installed. that should only be active when youre in gnome00:02
ZeikfriedWell, the reason i want to remove it is because i use gnome for gaming, but i get the image of my mouse cursor in the middle of teh screen, and it is caused by the power manager.00:03
ZeikfriedOther than the fact that i killed out Kwin and use Compiz and Emerald for compositing in my KDE setup, everything runs great.00:05
ZeikfriedJust cant game in it.00:05
ZeikfriedNeed a copy of ubuntu-tweak designed for KDE....00:11
zed_okay... can someone help me get java/flash up and runing on a fresh install of kubuntu KK?00:13
zed_guess not00:18
ZeikfriedIs there an opensource gaming channel?00:18
zed_no flash or java makes the baby jesus cry00:18
Zeikfriedzed_ You should be able to download the flash software from adobes website.00:18
zed_tried that00:18
Zeikfriedjava though, i have no clue on that one.00:19
ZeikfriedLook in your package manager for an option to install flash non free.00:19
zed_tried that too00:19
zed_it says it installed00:19
zed_but doesn't work00:19
ZeikfriedWhat browser are you using?00:19
zed_also, the same exact java update keeps popping up00:19
zed_even though I approve the update, it keeps coming back00:20
ZeikfriedGo to the addond section for firefox and install the java and flash addons.00:20
zed_I'll try that00:20
ZeikfriedThey have a set of addons that are integrated into teh browser.00:20
ZeikfriedYou just have to install them.00:20
Walzmynzed are you on a 64bit system?00:21
WalzmynIf you right click on a downloaded item in firefox and select "open containing folder", you get a dialog asking what app should it use - How do I fix that?00:24
zed_no, a very old 32 bit desktop00:24
ZeikfriedAre you trying to open a .rar file?00:25
Walzmynzed_: ok. There's an issue with 64bit, ya gotta get the right package to install00:25
zed_I'm downloading java directly from the website now00:25
zed_I don't understand why installing the restricted package suite from the command line didn't work00:26
zed_and I couldn't get passed the java EULA00:26
zed_no obvious way to accept the EULA00:26
zed_I checked the firefox add-ons, I couldn't find one that installed java directly.. they were all appz to do things like debug java or turn it off ect.00:27
ZeikfriedI dont even think i have java now that i think about it. o.o00:28
ZeikfriedOh, yep, i do have it.00:28
ZeikfriedAnd i just read it, i am using shockwaves version of flash.00:28
zed_java package from the java website is done00:29
zed_I will try to install this one00:29
zed_be back00:29
ZeikfriedWhich is odd, because i installed the package from adobe.00:29
zed_isn't shockwave a adobe product?00:29
ZeikfriedI believe so.00:30
ZeikfriedBut it says i have   Shockwave Flash 10.0 r3200:30
ZeikfriedWas production of Afterfall discontinued?00:32
zed_now I'm having more issues00:34
zed_terminal refuses to let me login as superuser00:34
zed_maybe windows is better00:34
ZeikfriedCould be 9.10 giving you issues.00:36
zed_I didn't have these problems with jackalope00:40
zed_but koala has been fighting me00:40
zed_lol, someone just joined with the name "zed_is_a_good_boy"00:41
ZeikfriedI just stick with Intrepid.00:50
ZeikfriedI have it almost bug free so far.00:51
ZeikfriedOnly thing i know if that crashes the system is clicking on a file to rename it, and while teh text is highlighted to be renamed, right click again and hit copy to copy teh text you are about to change.00:52
ZeikfriedLast time i did that i had to reinstall my whole setup.00:52

RoastedGuys - question - this may be kind of stupid but I'm just learning KDE as I've been a gnome user for 4 years. If I'm installing something and I need to enter the ppa line in sources.list and edit it to match my linux version, do I put ubuntu jaunty, or do I put kubuntu jaunty?02:13
JontheEchidnaRoasted: the ppa lines are identical for ubuntu and kubuntu02:14
Roastedjontheechidna - so if I n eed to add this ppa and edit it, what do I use on my kubuntu machine? If I put kubuntu jaunty will it auto detect and know what Im doing?02:15

venikdoe anyone else find 9.10 to be sluggish, prone o freezing, and in general a step backwards?10:45
Lindowsvenik: not sluggish, but error prone10:45
Lindowsvenik: I've had problems with it mounting cifs shares before the network comes up, so it'll free10:46
venikI use occasionally an older machine with 6.06 and it is much nappier10:46
Lindowsalways fun...then I have to dpkg-reconfigure kdm so I can even log in via the gui..10:46

iconmefisto_Lindows: just to be clear, do you mean if A can't ping B, but B can ping A, then B is behind a firewall?10:50
Lindowsiconmefisto: that B is ignoring ICMP ECHO requests....10:52
Lindowsiconmefisto: which usually means a firewall is filtering them10:52

venikI can start Lyx, for instance, or dolphin, and they work fine from the konsole10:57

veniksince the menu is just a program, I thought I could run it as well10:57
iconmefisto_venik: dolphin ??10:57

venikthe file manager of KDE10:58

vbgunzI am on Kubuntu 9.10 and it has been months since I've seen a notification to reboot or updates to installed software... I think that particular notification is broken on my system or disabled. what am I looking for?13:51
=== manny__ is now known as mannyv
BluesKajvbgunz, open a terminal : sudo apt-get update13:58
BluesKajvbgunz, it's the best and easiest way to update your installed packages13:59
vbgunzBluesKaj: I've been doing this for months. I no longer get update or reboot notifications. I just checked notifications and I believe it is KPackageKit responsible for this. none of the options are disabled. I have update and reboot required options checked *but* never see them anymore :(13:59
vbgunzis there a way to test kpackagekit notifications?14:00
BluesKajusing apt-get ?14:00
vbgunzno, apt-get is fine, it works as far as I can tell. I am talking about the notifications in the system tray. they're not disabled nor hidden and I simply never see them anymore14:01
vbgunzI see notifications yes, but I haven't seen a notification for updates or reboots and *yet* many updates and required reboots have gone by14:01
vbgunzother than this, Kubuntu is a champ at everything else14:02
BluesKajwell, when you apt-get update , apt looks at your installed packages and sees whether or not there are updates in the repos , the same as any package manager with notification does14:02
vbgunzyeah I just had about 15 updates. if I log into the tty 1-6 and haven't upgraded, I see them there.. I just remember doing a sudo apt-get update used to cause the package manager notification to say "hey you have x amount of updates" . this use to happen immediately. not it never happens anymore14:04
vbgunzhmm just found a post about this I think14:06
apparlehow to edit the xsplash in kubuntu14:06
BluesKajvbgunz, that's due to the fact that you have the official release installed and there are fewer updates than there were in alpha and beta phases and maybe your notifier is turned off14:06
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about xsplash14:06
=== crissi_ is now known as CrissiD
BluesKajvbgunz, you notifier doesn't do anything better than apt-get does, it's just gui linked to apt anyway14:08
ubottugrub is the default boot manager for Ubuntu releases before Karmic (9.10). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto - See !grub2 for Karmic onwards.14:08
vbgunzBluesKaj: I have no problem doing apt-get, but after these updates, it hit me. I used to be notified of updates before but no more. anyhow. many times I had to reboot the system but the notification would fail to tell me that too14:10
vbgunzit's all good I suppose, I'll just apt-get update and reboot when I get the chance though I would really like to be told about the reboot issue without guessing about it :(14:11
Smurphyvbgunz: You only have to reboot if kernel is change drastically. else - a reboot is often not required. remember - this is no Windows Systme.14:12
Smurphyvbgunz: If you need to reboot - the system will tell you !14:13
BluesKajno need to reboot ,after updating vbgunz , this isn't windows14:13
vbgunzSmurphy: haha, yeah, no joke. but how do I know when I need to reboot?14:13
bazhangvbgunz, the system will tell you14:14
vbgunzmy upgrade from 9.04 alpha to 9.10 involved many reboots and I never got a single notification14:14
Smurphyvbgunz: You'll have the porange reboot button showing up in the Panel...14:14
Smurphyvbgunz: My upgrade from 9.04 did require only 1 reboot ... for the kernel :)14:14
vbgunzI just don't think my notifications around updating and rebooting are working. it seems a post mentions this exact issue but I don't think there is a fix for it now14:15
crissi_ok.. so.. i have no sound.14:15
crissi_clean install for 9.1014:15
BluesKajSmurphy, there are somenon kernel reboots that are required without notification , like after a purge14:15

crissi_i saw something on a forum about unmute it in pavucontrol14:18
SmurphyBluesKaj: I usually, not even under Windows - reboot my system after some updates are played in ...14:18
crissi_ok so i have sound in irc..  but i just installed flash (for web purposes) and it wont work to play media .14:24
BluesKajcrissi_, install flashplugin-nonfree, kubuntu-restricted-extras14:27
vbgunzI think I know what is happening in my case. I think I know why I haven't seen a notification about updates or rebooting. I hardly and rarely reboot my machine but I do dual boot and prefer hibernating to get into Windows. I've gotten into the habit a long time ago to check for updates *before* I ever reboot. the latest notifier only seems to check and notify for updates upon bootup.14:27
vbgunzbut I do remember and could have sworn to all the gods in the world, when ever I did an apt-get update, I would *immediately* see notifications for updates if I had any. updating in the gui if a reboot was required I remember seeing an orange two circled arrow icon immediately. anyhow, I'll keep following that thread14:29
crissi_ok got the plugin-nonfree14:30
crissi_where are the kubuntu-restricted-extras14:30
crissi_gonna reboot real quick. be back in a minute14:31

yoyoGuest33520 You create it and set the send later before actually sending it16:34
crayfishRoasted: Im running Karmic (9.10) on a desktop with 2 screens, laptop and the netbook edition on a dell mini - all are completely stable - what graphics set up have you got?16:35
Roastedcrayfish - onboard intel, not too sure offhand.16:35

Guest33520yoyo: yes - i think so too, but i would like to create the email, and choose monday morning 9 a.m. to send this particular email... is that possible too?16:35
Roastedcrayfish - I'm not sure man. I want to like KDE and use it more but so far it has me a little skeptical. I just wanted to hear it from somebody else as to what other hardcore KDE users thought.16:36
Guest33520yoyo: I havent found any docs about this topic on the internet yet.16:36
crayfishRoasted: it's certainly not a wide issue, suggest you dig around in your logs to get more info16:36
crayfishRoasted: I use Kubuntu 99.9% of the time, at work too - never had a dsitro so stable.16:36
Roastedcrayfish - well it's goo dto hear that it's not a huge issue, because if I mode to KDE full time from gnome, it'd be on a separate rig that needs to have pure stability, but its completely different hardware16:36
crayfishRoasted: did you install Kubuntu from scratch or attempt to load switch Ubunty from Gnome to KDE?16:37
Roastedcrayfish - I have to be fair though now that I think about it, this computer hasnt been the easiest to install linux on. Sometimes when I boot I get 2 or 3 instances of the boot screen offset16:37
Roastedcrayfish - well, I installed ubuntu and dumped KDE on top of it. Every time I downloaded an ISO of Kubuntu, it was corrupt.16:37
crayfishRoasted: sounds like hardware, Gnome has fried your box ;-)16:37
yoyoSo you create a new message then within that window you choose message and go down to send later option and set the parameters.  You then type the body of the email and send? Guest3352016:37
Roastedcrayfish - I burned with brasero, k3b, etc at slowest speed, each one fried16:38
Roastedused different cds too16:38
Roastedhey crayfish I have another question too for you16:38
crayfishRoasted: hmm funny that, I had to download a new iso today for 9.10 as my previous one didnt md5 match - I've never put KDE ontop of Ubuntu, always installed it from the Kubuntu ISO and never had any issues16:38
Roastedyou're familiar with system monitor in gnome, I assume. Wehre you can have a panel in your top panel that shows your network activity, cpu activity, etc16:38
crayfishRoasted: did you check md5 sum of the iso?16:38
RoastedI want that in KDE, but I cant seem to add it. the widgets just kind of suck.16:39
crayfishRoasted: widgets... add them to the desktop or to the panel.16:39
Roastedcrayfish - I did, but as I went to match it, we got a lightning storm and the power went off. Went to bed, woke up late, got to work at the last minute, and here I am on my lunch break digging for info :P16:39
crayfishIf you add the widgets to the panel (rather than the desktop) you'll get smaller versions similar to what you're saying16:39
Roastedcrayfish - my point is the kde version of these widgets kind of... suck. I cant expand them out at all.16:39
Roastedyeah I want them on the panel16:40
Guest33520thanks anyway.... will post in a foum for that question... but would be funny if it wouldnt work..16:40
Roastedcrayfish - also - when I add widgets to the panel, whyc ant I move them? I want certain widgets spaced in different areas.16:40
crayfishUnlock widgets, then click the panel -  you can add mini versions of the widgets direct to the panel16:40
Roastedhm okay16:41
Roastedso crayfish do you know offhand if theres a system monitor that compares that Im talking about?16:41
crayfishYou can - click the far-right icon (when widgets are unlocked) and "more settings" - you can lay the panel out completely as you choose16:41
crayfishRoasted: pretty sure there is, but I havent used Gnome in years16:41
Roastedcrayfish - how long have you used kde?16:42
=== me is now known as Guest11148
crayfishabout 2 years16:42
crayfishIt's gone leaps and bounds since KDE4.016:42
Roastedyeah, that's what I keep hearing16:43
RoastedI gotta admit, I find KDE so much better with the panel at the top - but that may be the gnome side of me talkign :P16:43
RoastedKDE panel at top - dock at the bottom = very nice16:43
Peace-Roasted: i use the pannel on the top too16:43
crayfish< 4.0 was a waste of cpu cycles, 4.0 was buggy as hell, 4.1+ has been perfect and constantly improving/16:43
Peace-the first kde that is working here properly was kde 4.2.216:44
Roastedcrayfish - I'm glad to hear positive things about it. I will continue using gnome on my main rig until I get to know KDE more. Already in the 2-3 hours I've used it, I REALLY like it.16:44
crayfish4.3.2 rocks16:44
Peace-crayfish: i am on kde 4.3.316:44
RoastedI use my main rig as a backup server, file server, web server, etc so I dont want to screw with it unless I need to.16:44
crayfishRoasted: install the Kubuntu ISO though, I've never had a stability problem with that16:44
Peace-and it's rock solid16:44
Roastedwhat version of KDE does karmic 9.10 have?16:44
Peace-kde 4.3.216:44
Roastedcrayfish - I intend to. Like I said I just kept getting errors on every ISO I downloaded. But I will take your advice on that.16:45
Peace-but you can add the repository to install kde 4.3.316:45
crayfishbut you can get 4.3.3 as peace pointed out16:45
Roastedwhat differs from .3 to .216:45
crayfishPeace-: I havent got around to doing that yet, much improvement on 4.3.2?16:45
Peace-mmm when kde is updated you should update16:45
Peace-but here16:45
crayfishPeace-: I heard they had improved "smoothness" a bit.16:45
Peace-i have not seen so much difference16:45
crayfishRoasted: check the md5sum16:45
vasuviI've never had a stability problem on my Karmic either though albeit, and I installed Ubuntu (one of the early Karmic alphas) then used 'apt-get install kubuntu-desktop'16:45
crayfishRoasted: I wonder if theres an issue somewhere with mirrors, as I had to download the iso twice after the md5 didnt match.16:46
Peace-vasuvi: yes and then you had to installa mplayerthuimb and a lots of other stuff16:46
Peace-to get working properly16:46
vasuviPeace-: No, actually, I didn't16:46
Peace-vasuvi: you should install16:47
Peace-to get advanced stuff on your kde16:47
vasuviPeace-: Albeit perhaps I'm missing something and don't even realize it; I don't really care to get animated thumbnails though ;)16:47
Peace-well if you don't care about advanced features you can keep default installation16:48
Peace-but normally people want that stuff16:48
vasuviPeace-: Would those things be automatic if you installed from a Kubuntu CD?16:48
Peace-vasuvi: nope :(16:49

peachesMamarok: ok my support question is, plainly, what problems will i have if i try to upgrade to 9.10 from 9.04. should i do it19:17
Mamarokpeaches: I did a clean install since I have a separate /home and had no problems at all19:18
MamarokI rsnyced my /home to an external HD and reformatted all in KDE4, the installed 9.10 and rsynced the /home content back, no problems at all19:19
Mamarokfor final releases I always make clean installs, it get's rid of some garbage, and I bring back the $HOME/.kde/ content only for special apps like adressbook, mails, etc, not of the basic settings, so I start back with default19:20
peachesMamarok: do all the configs from /etc come over cleanly ? i notice often there are merges with new stuff in upgrades that need to be done19:21
Mamarokpeaches: I never bring back those, although I rsnync those too, usually there is no need to19:22

Mamarokand man rsync gives the details19:23
drostie|crapSo, um, yeah. Could we add just one wishlist item to Project Timelord?19:24
drostie|crapI want once -- at least just once -- for an upgrade path to actually work. :-/19:25
drostie|crapEven if it, like this last one, lies to you. As long as it works.19:25
Tm_Thmm, last time I did clear install after trying broken alpha, couple years ago19:25
Mamarokdrostie|crap: go on, suggest it19:26
Tm_Tso at here upgrade paths seams to work19:26
MamarokTm_T: ditto here, never had any problems19:27
Mamarokdrostie|crap: don't know what's wrong in your case, but I never had any such problems, and I use Kubuntu since it exists19:27
Tm_Twell, I don't say I never had _any_ problems but just I don't remember any (:19:27
drostie|crapMamarok: well, just to answer the implicit question, the computer doesn't want to mount swap at the very least, and it panics at some point. :/19:28
drostie|crapBut I imagine I have to debug this myself. :/19:29
Mamarokdrostie|crap: I never heard that, sorry19:29
drostie|crapwith hope I can use a live cd to read log messages, if it's been leaving any.19:30
Mamarokdrostie|crap: what computer, did it run Kubuntu 9.04 before?19:30
drostie|crapyeah. Ran 9.04 since a little before april.19:31
drostie|craptoshiba laptop. nice instructions on the laptop testing team pages for all of its extras. ^_^19:31
Mamarokdrostie|crap: and you upgraded normally, no incidents during the upgrade?19:31
drostie|crapwell, other than the habitual lying of the installer about whether it would download anything, nope. Just some config files that I reviewed and decided to put Kubuntu's way, leaving the task of changing them back until later.19:33
K350Is there any addressfield one can write/read in Dolphin?19:33
drostie|crapK350: click the path near the top of the Dolphin window, it should change into an edit control.19:34
chaituI know this might sound silly, but can anyone help me with getting win+d working like in windows? I tried setting it up in uder settings in kubuntu.. I dont see a option where I can create a new one or edit "show desktop". Thanks19:34

kgeek_awhatley: abt wat?21:50
awhatleywas wondering why when my wifi card is wireless abgn same as router but cannot connect to N21:51
awhatleyi was tryin to post on the forum but it wont let me21:52
awhatleykeeps tryin to download .php files21:52
awhatleythe last time i used linux was when mandrake 8.2 was just released21:53
rstob911awhatley: but it does connect to g correct21:54
awhatleybut when i run lshw -class network it says  product: BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller21:54
awhatleymaybe im just getting confused21:54
awhatleywhen i run iwconfig it only says 802.11g21:55
rstob911awhatley: ok then it works but if you need you may need to use ndiswrapper and use the win driver21:55
rethushi there... one question... i have downloaded the kubuntu-iso, but for one project i need xubuntu. How can i easyly change kubuntu after installation to kubuntu... or should i better download directly xubuntu?21:55
awhatleythat is what i was using at first but it would not connect at all so i started using WICD21:56
Peace-rethus: just install xubuntu-desktop21:56
Ahmuckrethus: u can change, however, if your download speed is good and download does not cost anything, download xubuntu21:56
rethusAhmuk: thats the problem.. downloadspeed is not such good21:57
Ahmucku can remove kubuntu just as easliy by removing kubuntu-desktop21:57
awhatleyalso i was wondering if there are certain routers that do not like to function with linux?21:57
Ahmuckso, "sudo aptitude install xubuntu-desktop"21:57
Ahmuckand "sudo aptitude remove kubuntu-desktop"21:57
Tm_TAhmuck: that doesn't remove kubuntu-desktop21:57
Tm_Tthat removes only the metapackage that contains nothing in itself21:58
rstob911awhatley: i have accually found the broadcom works quite nicely which that is what you have21:58
Tm_Trethus: you can have xubuntu and kubuntu in same install21:58
rethusTm_T: i doesn't need it.. only need a lightway system with xubuntu21:59
awhatleyso then what would you suggest I do. im not to sure how to configure ndiswrapper21:59
Tm_Trethus: but if you really want to get rid of all KDE (Kubuntu stuff) then install xubuntu-desktop and then...21:59
Tm_T!puregnome | rethus21:59
ubotturethus: If you want to remove all !KDE packages, type « sudo apt-get remove kdelibs4c2 kdelibs5-data && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop » into a !terminal21:59
Tm_Trethus: btw Xubuntu itself isn't much lighter than Ubuntu or Kubuntu21:59
rethusah, ok, but why it start so slowly?22:00
rstob911search the forums   http://ubuntuforums.org/tags.php?tag=ndiswrapper22:00
rethusto start kde takes 2 minutes, and xubuntu less then one miute (on Pentium III)22:00
Tm_Trethus: I really wonder why, is that only "slowness" you encounter?22:01
rethusi dont know... but isn't xfce a lightwight wm? Thats the different or not?22:02
rethusso xfce on suse also much faster loaded at first time22:02
rethusTm_T: did u personaly have benchmark xfce vs. kde4?22:03
Tm_Trethus: that's been the impression yes, though I have used KDE4 with 128 MiB ram and old celeron22:03
rstob911rethus: sounds to me like your video card is not letting all of the composit stuff run right try turning off the desktop effects22:04
Tm_Trethus: yes, both can be light if you tweak, but only startup time seems to be real difference in reasonable use22:04
rethusso my p3 has magic 256 ram :D22:04
rethusok, can tweak kde too, but this is some work, or is this quite esy and fast made?22:05
rethusi need a small fast system for an telephone-application server...22:05
rethusneed no eyecandy have only to run fast an stable22:05
Tm_Trethus: if you like to have light system without tweaking AND you still need desktop, I recommend lxde22:06
Tm_Tbut now I have to go to sleep, good luck with it (: ->>22:06
rethustm_t: thx22:06
rstob911rethus: i like this one   http://www.ubuntugeek.com/lxde-lightweight-x11-desktop-environment-for-ubuntu.html22:07
rethusrstob911: biggest problem is that in each wm the apps are different.. in kde have konqueror, k3b.. in gnome nautilus, in xfce other...22:09
rethusso what have lxdea for programms? like gnome, or own collection?22:10
rstob911there are several flavors of lxde going around distro watch may be your best bet to look and compare22:11
rethusbut its no distro, only WM ?!22:11

awhatleycan you explain that to me22:14
awhatleyim sorry for being a pain in the a$$22:14
rstob911it is accually its own now but was based on mandriva22:14
rethusthink i better install kubuntu and try lxde... is it in the main repos of kubuntu?22:15
rethuscause i like debian-based, cause very stable22:15
awhatleywhat about not being able to post on forums, it is making me download .php files22:15
rstob911awhatley: yes that driver will only let you connect at G not N in linux22:16
awhatleyis there anything i can do to correct the issue22:16

=== naruto is now known as Guest50305
awhatleywell i am running for a smoke i will be back in a few22:17
rstob911rethus: remember that all the distros out there are based off of debian or redhat22:17
rethusrstob911... but some are far away from debian now... for exxample gentoo22:19
rstob911some just have different ways if packaging either .deb or .rpm22:19
rethusand each has other major targets and ways to get this targets22:19
rstob911linux from scratch22:20
rethusthats alos why i wan't to change from suse to kubuntu... newer packages, very stable... suse also good, but not exactly my kind of "living Linux" ;)22:21
mauriwhich are the differente between karmic and lucid22:22
rethusrstob911: so whats the fastest and smalest way.. installing xubuntu and than lxde or kubuntu and than lxde?22:25
rstob911rethus: there are just about every flavor of ubuntu you could ever need22:25
rstob911rethus: xubuntu is a nice desktop light and fast22:26
rstob911rethus: kubuntu kde-4 not so fast but very nice for faster machines22:27
rethus1jes, i know, all based on ubuntu... but maybe i have to install this set of software much often than only once... so maybe its better directly to download xubuntu?!22:27
rethus1on xubuntu page i found this info: setting up automated deployments; (on installing with "alternate Installing CD)22:31
rethus1so i need to install an asterisk, lighttpd, mysql and so on.22:32
rethus1how can i preset this?22:32
david_hola alguien me puede colaborar en la instalacion de un paquete tar. gz22:38
rethus1so special question... can i install kubuntu on a second hdd (in same pc) and migrate suse to kubuntu step for step (maybe with kubuntu in virtual machine?)22:45
rethus1and second question (not special question :p ) did u use a firewall in kubuntu.. and why isn't there a firewall out of the box?22:49
geos_deHow do you define migrate? I would install kubuntu parallel to suse and then I would try to copy the home folder part for part to the kubuntu installation22:49
geos_deI don't use one.22:50
geos_deIf there are no open ports a port-firewall which is normally used on pcs isn't neccessary22:51
rethus1geos_de: jes, but i will try it live.. means... kopy some kmail-stuff, and try it on kubuntu... work it or not... if work, copy the next, if not, restore the defaults22:51
rethus1 geos_de: no open ports ??? a desktop wha has no firewall activatet listen on all ports - or am i wrong?22:52
geos_deI do so on every kubuntu-"Update": Backup my home-folder, format hdd install new kubuntu version copy home folders like you said22:53
rethus1goes_de i have no kubuntu, i still have suse... so i have to migrate22:54
DTsanwhat is a good alternative to hyperterminal for 8.04 ?22:54
geos_dethere must be a server which is listening to that port. If not: what will happen to connections to the port?: nothing22:54
rethus1so i think about to start kubuntu on sdb in virtualbox and copy file for file to kubuntu and try it out22:55
geos_deyes but the kde home folder might be nearly the same (hope so)22:55
geos_deof course you can do it this way. But if you install it parallel to your suse installation there shouldn't be any problems22:56

avihayDTsan: something that will talk with the serial port?23:03
WilliamBuellohhhh i see, kubuntu is a seperate flavor of, what, debian23:03
WilliamBuelldoes anyone here blog about ubuntu, you are welcome to look at my blog, .. it might help some beginners out23:04
DTsanno, work over lan23:04
DTsanto an ip address23:04
avihaylike telnet?23:05
WilliamBuellavihay: where is your school located, what state, what country, I read that some countries like Switzerland are making Linux manditory23:05
rstob911well ubuntu used to be based off of debian but now 99% on there own WilliamBuell23:05
avihaythen use telnet23:05
WilliamBuellah, thanks rstob91123:05
avihayunless you want it encripted, then you want ssh23:05
DTsandid not know i could do that. where might i find it?23:06
DTsantelnet i mean23:06
WilliamBuellI found an easy quick automatic way to install LAMP (Linux Apache php MySQL), and I blogged the steps23:06
rstob911good old telnet you can find it at the software add and remove DTsan23:07
avihayas far as I know telnet comes with every unix and unix decended long befor the microsol version ever came out23:07
avihayya, telnet is already installed. open a konsoul and type telnet (or ssh)23:07
DTsanahh, ok23:07
avihayit should already be installed23:07
WilliamBuellI find it is useful to have a Wubi install on one machine, and then this pure Ubuntu machine, so if I want to install something, i can do it with Wubi first, cause that is easier to reinstall23:07

WilliamBuellwhich is way too advanced for me23:19
rstob911no need for all that lol23:19
rstob911WilliamBuell: after it installs im not sure if it puts a icon on the desktop or not if not just right click on the desktop and hit run command and type avast23:21
WilliamBuellrstob: this is a BIG help to me just to have the .deb install23:21
WilliamBuelli am sure there is some way to launch it, even if only in terminal with sudo23:22
