andre_i wanted to play some music from my external partition (ntfs), but it doesn't work in amarok00:30

andre_on windows i had the possibility to boost the bass a little bit (on my headphones)00:35
andre_how can i do that here?00:35
andre_oh, and can you suggest me a good webcam recorder + video editing? (or probably both in the same package)00:37
apparlelocalgh0st: I suggest you read the system logs .. use Ksystemlog00:38
apparleandre_: as for the mp3. try opening an mp3 file.... a popup will tell you what is required to play it..... then you can install the packages.00:38
andre_apparle: the mp3-thing works already, thank you!00:39

localgh0stdaweed, I think grub is the default during the installation, am I wrong?00:52
andre_apparle: the amarok-one works, but it's just amarok-specific00:52
andre_if i watch a youtube-video, it still sounds not very good00:53
apparleandre_: ya I got that ..... and I don't know about the system wide settings......00:53
luis__before going to user and passwork it displays some commands telling a warning, something related to kernel, but its dessapears to fast to read, then the old user and password of the old version comes, when it enter no bar, widgets appear, only the desktop00:53
luis__its like the old version with some parts of the new 10.04 malfuntioning00:53

luis__and i dont know about a command to reinstall everythin00:56
localgh0stapparle, Amarok works flawlessly, but I get that returned with aplay and I hear nothing... Very odd, agreed.00:56
apparleluis__: if you want to fix everything... its "sudo apt-get -f install" that would try to fix any problems apt has.00:57
apparleluis__: check if you are still using the hardy repo00:57
luis__hardy heron?00:57
daweedlocalgh0st: and where can i download the ubuntu live cd?00:58

silas_Boa noite. Alguém aí ja instalou o Ub1004 num notbook?04:51
Luija1006I got one doubt about lucid 10.04: The resolution is not the correct, but the system of getting the right nvidia resolution has now changed, before u had to enter hardware drivers and download the driver, now the windows simply says the laptop is not using private drivers, how I can download the nvidia driver in 10.04?04:56
Pavel_SHI, I need you help. Can somebody help me05:05

Pavel_SMy touchpad settings don't active. I can't change them. Is it a bug?05:06
frogonwheelsPavel_S: More info. what do you mean by "don't active"?  where do you expect to change them? what have you tried?05:07
Pavel_SSystem settings -> Keyboard -> Touchpad05:08
Pavel_SBut i can't change nothing.05:09
frogonwheelsPavel_S: ah. you possibly need to switch to admin.05:09
frogonwheelshmm.. either that or it just doesn't detect your touchpad.05:09
Pavel_SWhat does it mean? "doesn't detect"05:10
frogonwheelsPavel_S: yeah - that's what it will be.  It can't find anything that it can identify as a touchpad05:10
Pavel_SMy touchpad works fine.05:10
frogonwheelshm.. possibly it thinks it's a mouse? dunno.05:11
frogonwheelsPavel_S:  in 'informations' does it say anything?05:11
Pavel_SI don't understand you. Where i need to check something05:12
frogonwheelsIn "Touchpad Settings"  there's a group-box labeled (badly) 'informations'05:13
Pavel_Sok, i have found.05:13
frogonwheelsMine has  Touchpad Name: Device not found  -given I don't have a touchpad.05:13
Pavel_SI have same.05:14
Pavel_SCan i fix this or not?05:14
frogonwheelsPavel_S: your touchpad is probably identifying as a mouse then.05:14
frogonwheelsdon't know.  Google your specific touchpad.05:15
frogonwheelsPavel_S: if it's a usb device, try   lsusb   to find the device name if you need to05:15

CartoonCatyay, upgraded to lucid and now my wireless is totaly broken (one AP deauthenticates, the other times out). Atheros card, using ath5k drivers05:40
dolomiteifconfig -a05:41
CartoonCatYes the card is listed, the module is loaded, etc05:42
dolomitewhy not add blah blah blah too05:42
CartoonCatthe interface is up, etc, iwconfig wlan0 essid Wireless and  dmesg shows [  226.672627] wlan0: deauthenticating from 00:18:0a:01:7f:21 by local choice (reason=3)05:43
dolomitebug report says reinstalling network manager helped05:45
dolomitetried it yet?05:45
CartoonCatYes, as wel las trying to switch to kde network manager, no change05:46
CartoonCatthis seams to be a issue with the version of the ath5k that was picked05:47
CartoonCatI can drop to gentoo or win7, works fine, can swap hd's and go to 9. and it works fine =\05:48
dolomiteand your version is current right?05:48
lucituCartoonCat: try the  plasma-widget-networkmanagement instead05:48
CartoonCatits the one lucid ships with, yes05:49
dolomiteCartoonCat: modprobe -r athk and modprobe athk05:49
dolomiteworth a shot05:49
CartoonCatlucitu: i will switch back, but the issue is not the manager, its ath5k05:49
CartoonCatdolomite: I have done that, i get the same dmesg output05:49
CartoonCatI need to switch to the same ath5k that 9.04/9.10 use's, or possibly move to the latest ath5k. being a long time gentoo nut has corrupted me on these binary distro's heh05:52
dolomiteyeah, there are way too many issues with these wireless modules. launchpad's flooded05:54
CartoonCatthey do seam to have picked a poor version of ath5k this go. I know the one i was using with 9.04 worked. I know the latest from ~3 months ago worked (in gentoo, still the one im using there)05:56
dolomiteyes, some things are better left untouched05:57
CartoonCatnow, to figure out how to do that on here. it doesnt seam to be what im used to "pull tar.gz, configure, make, install"05:57
ubottucheckinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!05:58
dolomiteI did not know about that wrapper; handy!06:00
CartoonCatsame here, I will try it.06:00
CartoonCatif it goes boom, not much will be lost other then time and hair06:01

Teknicalso my flash no longer works, just a grey box .. can anyone clue me in on what package i should reinstall?06:05
Teknicalthis is on firefox, with kubuntu 10.04^06:05

CartoonCatTeknical: when you say flash, do you mean a usb stick?06:08
Teknicaladobe flash content on webpages in firefoxd06:08
CartoonCatI had to reinstall the plugin after the upgrade to 10 from 906:08
Teknicalcan you direct me on the best way to do that?06:09
CartoonCati have no idea if its the best, but i selected the nonfree flashplugin from aptitude06:10
dolomiteTeknical: in the address bar of firefox type about:plugins06:11
Teknicalyes in my plugins area it shows shockwave flash06:11
dolomiteTeknical: I'd recommend finding the package name of your flash plugin06:12
Teknicalthats what i was hoping to get from here06:12
dolomiteand from terminal type sudo apt-get remove --purge <package name>06:12
dolomitetry to install the .deb file from adobe's site06:12
Teknicalit seems the restricted extras was the last thing i did, that may have caused this06:12

Teknicalim  not sure what to look for really .. ive reinstalled what ive found06:14
dolomiteand did it work?06:15
dolomitein /usr/lib/firefox/plugins delete the flashplayer.so file06:15
dolomiteand this time, please purge the flashplugin package06:16

doleyb_Teknical: adobe does have a separate download for 64 linux flash06:16
dolomite(if you didn't last time)06:16
Teknicalhaha im not even sure what to purge, i was asking what packages are what06:16
doleyb_Teknical: after you might try http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/64bit.html06:16
Teknicalwhat is really annoying is my flash has worked fine since 10.04 release06:17
Teknicaltoday i reboot and this06:17
dolomiteTeknical: if you do a search in your package manager for flash, is anything installed?06:17

justushey folks16:10
justusI have a small nuisance here: whenever I double press ^ only one ^ is generated, is it possible to make a double press generate two of those? ^^16:11
DarthFrogjustus: If anyone knew the answer to your question, they'd pipe up.16:15
justusI just wonder how that one was screwed up, cause I know for a fact that there are linux distros without this bug16:16
jimmy51_DarthFrog: i gave up with the video fixes.  i couldn't get anything but vesa or nouvou to work.  i just did a fresh install.16:16
jimmy51_justus: i'm pretty sure that's not a bug...16:16
justusjimmy51_: are you sure? Cause I find that pretty much expected behaviour, if I press a button two times it should show two times16:17
DarthFrogjimmy51_: And did things work after the new install?16:17
jimmy51_DarthFrog: i'm at the hardware drivers dialog now... about to choose "current version" for kicks16:18
DarthFrogjimmy51_: Well, at least you learned something new and useful. :-)16:18
jimmy51_justus: sorry.. i mis-read.16:18
jimmy51_justus: so... you hold shift and tab the 6 key twice, and it only shows one character?16:18
DarthFrogI get two ^^.16:19
justusI'm using a german keyboard, with a separate button for that16:20
DarthFrogat a wild guess, there's something special about the keymap for that keyboard.16:20
ForgeAusmaybe someone in #kubuntu-de (it is de for german right?) will know??16:22

justuswell, ok, you could declare that a german problem ^^16:22
justusallthough not for my lack of language understanding I hope ;)16:22
ForgeAuswell not necessarily "a german problem"16:22
ForgeAusjust because your using a special keymap thats German nothing to do with your language or anything... besides it was just a suggestion... that they might know more about the issue your having thats all...16:23
jimmy51_DarthFrog: indeed i did.  and.... this fresh install is nice.  i've been running since 7.04 and had a lot of junk.16:29
DarthFrogjimmy51_: To me, that's the major benefit of having a separate /home partiton: I can do a fresh install (even on a different disk) and still have all my data intact.16:31
DarthFrogUse the same /home partition with both the old and the new installations.16:31
jimmy51_DarthFrog: yeah, i'm glad i'm set up that way.  mine's not ideal.... /home is a second partition, and /home/Storage is another drive altogether.16:32
jimmy51_but... at least my / format didn't get rid of /home16:32
jimmy51_DarthFrog: wow, the drivers worked.  current version, clicked activate, rebooted, viola!16:33
jimmy51_DarthFrog: i think my problem was related to having tried the nvidia.com drivers in the past16:33
DarthFrogjimmy51_: That's what I was thinking.  Cruft was interfering.16:34
DarthFrogAnd it's "voila", BTW,  "Viola" is a musical instrument. :-)16:35

boris_hi everyone, new to kubuntu, and the google search has not helped so far: how can i tell my computer to go to sleep, or hibernate, at a later time point (like shutdown -h +mins)???18:34
dolomiteboris_: that's the command you want18:34
melanieand a another major problem... is when i start my computer and the login come my screen turn black!18:34
melanieand i can do nothing!18:35

Captain_Haddocklucid fresh install: what's the recommended procedure to configure samba?18:35
boris_alright, but only figured out how to reboot or shutdown, not how to go to sleep.... must be missing something stupid18:35

ubottuSamba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/9.10/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.18:36
dolomitemelanie: in order to diagnose your problem, we need actual information18:36
boris_maco: thank you very much. don't know why i had trouble finding that18:36

Captain_Haddockdolomite: looking, thanks18:37
c3lmaco: oh :D well if my display settings got fixed, there wouldn't be any swearing =)18:38
c3land of course, im sorry. wont happen again18:38
dolomitec3l: no excuse. unless you find a word like that in the source code18:38
Captain_Haddockdolomite: is that a little dated? From what I read, samba uses some new authentication system.. and all the init.d restart business has all been thrown out of the window, right?18:40
apparlehi guys18:41
dolomiteCaptain_Haddock: you're probably right about the authentication stuff. I used the NFSHowTo on that site and had nothing but succes.18:41
dolomiteCaptain_Haddock: and the init.d stuff is just deprecated; there are still ways to restart processes18:41
dolomiteCaptain_Haddock: I'd take maco's advice and tread lightly with samba18:41
macodolomite: finding a word like that in the linux kernel source code is /easy/18:42

boris_jimmy51_: same here, i have learned to ignore it :)18:55

boris_i will rephrase my initial question: has anyone read the description part of the pm-action manual page, and understands what paragraphs 2 and 3 are supposed to mean?? (here the manual page: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/lucid/man8/pm-action.8.html)18:56

dolomitejimmy51_: the fix is to slow down your boot18:59
dolomitejimmy51_: for me, I didn't care enough about pretty graphics to slow down the boot18:59
jimmy51_oh, yuck.  me neither.  it's just not impressive to the people around here i'm trying to convert :(18:59
dolomitejimmy51_: well, I understand that approach too. I think the boot slowdown is like 5 seconds19:00
dolomiteso weight that out19:00
jimmy51_eh, i'll just drop a jelly bean on the floor when that part of the boot shows up19:01
moetunesboris_: those paragraphs say that to use it properly you are advised to use a program that interfaces with it properly19:01

smokealotcaprea: i had a simular problem my screen would turn green then show a very blurry login screen then it would repeat over and over21:16
smokealoti could not fix it tho ):21:17
smokealothad to reinstall21:17
capreayes I did21:18
pingvenoRepeat question: I just did the upgrade to Lucid and now my screen dims to 0% whenever a power profile is set, regardless of the power profile and any adjustments.21:18
capreawait I think I misunderstood21:18
capreawhat does alt-f1 do21:18
capreasmokealot: I could reinstall but I cant lose certain data folders21:19
capreaplus I cant burn a CD to boot from21:19
pingvenoModification: It also dims randomly when I am using it.21:19
Mamarokcaprea: Alt+F1 will not do much, I guess he meant Ctrl+Alt+F121:19
capreaI did ctrl-alt-f2 and was able to log in that way21:20
capreaso I can get console access21:20
capreabut when i try 'startx' it doesnt go.. I think because it already running the login screen?21:20
pingvenocaprea: You need to do startx -- :121:21
lfaraonemaco: poke21:22
capreaServer is already active for display 021:22
capreaI tried removing the .kde directory and that didnt fix it21:23
capreaI tried removing and installing kubuntu* from apt-get21:23
macolfaraone: ?21:24
lfaraonemaco: I decided to try out Kubuntu due to some S/R issues in Gnome. S/R works fine from the command line in KDE (despite refusing to suspend in GNOME), but the Power Management Console does not detect my battery or CPU scaling. (GNOME was able to do so)21:25
macolfaraone: file bug?21:26
lfaraonemaco: well, I'm not sure if it's a bug or I somehow messed up my installation <_<;21:26
* lfaraone just installed kubuntu-desktop y-day.21:26
macolfaraone: i dont think it sees my cpu scaling either, so im going with bug21:27
lfaraonemaco: does it see your battery?21:27
macoitll be a bug in powerdevil, i expect21:27
Tweylfaraone: So did I… it didn't work :-\21:29
lfaraonemaco: I don't have such a package installed, and it doesn't show up in an apt-cache search.21:30
macolfaraone: that might be part of kdebase...21:32
c3lI remember some program in gnome that automatically found my iPhone and showed its photos. is ther anything in kde that can do the same?21:32
smokealotive been trying21:32
smokealotmine does not even show up21:32
smokealotin gnome it does tho automticly21:32
smokealotlike you said21:32
c3lsmokealot: so how do we solve this?21:33
smokealotim still trying to find out21:34
c3lsmokealot: one way is of course to go over SSH (assuming your jailbroken)21:35
c3lbut afaik it is f-spot that is finding the iphone in gnome21:35

Guest52974java -version  OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.8)...  plus i've installed icedtea6-plugin   When I try to run an applet in yahoo games for instance, I just get a blank window.   How to fix?21:50
alebocois there a way to share internet connection, specifically using network-manager-kde?21:52
capreaIve determined my system is hosed and have to install fresh21:55
capreais there a DVD image, or a way to do it by network?21:55
Guest52974Also I've configured firefox to accept popups from  games.yahoo.com   The window pops up but there's a blank area where the java applet shouid be.     about:plugins list a bunch of idedtea stuff.  What is wrong?21:56
c3ltheres lots of ways to do it, I prefer using an USB-stick, caprea21:56
capreahmmm thats an option21:56
capreaI think I have a stick with 512mb21:56
capreahow much would I need?21:56
capreacan you explain that process to me c3121:57
c3lcaprea: as the image is made to fit a CD, at least 700mb is needed21:57
c3lcaprea: but just burning to a CD is perhaps the easiest and fatest21:57
Guest52974just make sure you test the CD/DVD before installing from it21:58
Guest52974test = verify21:58
Guest52974Should I purge IcedTea and install Sun21:59
Guest52974i might need some icedtea if sun is hot <--- a little geek humour22:00

jimmy51_is there no more menu.lst in 10.04?22:08
txwikingerjimmy51_: yes grub2 has a different configuration structure22:08
jimmy51_txwikinger: what's the file i'm looking for if i want to investigate the configuration formerly handled by menu.lst?22:09
txwikinger!grub2 | jimmy51_22:10
ubottujimmy51_: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since Karmic. For more information and troubleshooting on GRUB2 please refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub222:10
jimmy51_txwikinger: ah, grub.cfg.  Thanks for the link :)22:10
txwikingerjimmy51_: you are welcome22:11
robwlo531hi, despide of the broken plymouth screen with nivida drivers kubuntu 10.04 rocks awesome: my UMTS stick runs at 400KB/s lots of ugly drawing artifacts are gone...good job & congrats to the makers!22:16
capreaHow can I check if my processor is 32 or 64 without opening the box?22:17
benkay86robwlo531: Uh, thanks, but your audience is more likely to be here: https://wiki.kubuntu.org/LucidLynx/Final/Kubuntu/Feedback22:17
capreais there a console command I can use?22:17
benkay86caprea: If you know the model number, you can Google for it.22:17
capreawell.. its a dell model number, and I cant tell because you can order it with 64bit windows or 32 bit windows22:18
robwlo531I just _had_ to disable nepomuk as it consumes together with virtuoso > 50% of CPU (dualcore) and that is unacceptable. Is that a bug or just me?22:18
robwlo531benkay86: I was looking for some feedback link on kubuntu.org, but there I could'nt find any. so, thx22:19
capreaI just dont know what version of kubuntu to download22:19
capreaI dont know if I should get 32 or 6422:19
jimmy51_i'm officially a fan of UUID's now22:20
jimmy51_caprea: cat /proc/cpuinfo22:21
Captain_Haddockcaprea: you want to find this out in windows?22:22
capreano.. its a broken linux system22:22
capreaim reinstalling22:22
capreawant to be sure to get the right version22:22
Captain_Haddockcaprea: most hardware diagnostic tools should do so22:22
Captain_Haddockstuff like lshw22:22
Captain_Haddock(from the cli)22:23
capreathis is a broken system, if its not already installed it wont get installed22:23
robwlo531capera: if memory > 4GB take 64bit as the CPU is very likey to be 64bit then, otherwise 32bit is fine22:23
jimmy51_caprea: if you're booted to linux (liveCD or whatever) you can run lshw as Captain_Haddock said, or run "cat /proc/cpuinfo"22:24
jimmy51_either one will output information on the CPU22:24
capreaim looking at cpuinfo now22:24
Guest52974caprea: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/32bit_and_64bit22:24
jimmy51_caprea: look under model name22:24
Guest52974and what jimmy said22:24
robwlo531anybody experiencing heavy CPU usage with nepomuk on 10.04, too?22:25
jimmy51_caprea: mine says Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2200 @ 2.20Ghz.  The key is E2200.  if you google "ark E2200" you get a link to intel's product page for that processor22:25
jimmy51_caprea: including 64 bit or not22:25
capreaIntel Core 2 Duo, I guess this means it can run either 32bit or 64bit right22:25
jimmy51_caprea: does it have a model code?  E2200, X3450, etc?22:25
benkay86grep "model name" /proc/cpuinfo22:26
capreaE8500 @3.16Ghz22:26
benkay86Yes, it supports EMT64.22:26
jimmy51_caprea: definitely 64 bit capable.22:26
benkay86So you may install either the 32 or 64-bit version of Kubuntu, whichever you prefer.22:26
Guest52974bigger is better :-)22:27
jimmy51_caprea: how much RAM do you have?22:27
capreaI do a lot of intensive stuff on this machine, but I also want grater compatibility (like Flash)22:27
caprea4Gb I think22:27
emorrishi, does anyone happen to know what the equivalent of kdeaddons is in Ubuntu Lucid? Thanks22:27
benkay8664-bit flash works fine if you follow the instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash22:27
jimmy51_caprea: eh, you're on the line then.  i've got 4GB but installed 64 bit in case i add more.22:27
Guest52974yeah i did that too22:28
benkay86caprea: Also, if you do video encoding and such, 64-bit will give you a marginal performance boost even without the extra RAM.22:28
capreaits a science lab machine, number crunching and image processing22:28
benkay8664-bit would probably be a good idea then.22:28
benkay86Unless you are memory constrained and don't need double-precision, but that's most unlikely.22:29
jimmy51_caprea: ah, good. 32 and 64 are numbers, and 64 is twice 32.  it should be twice as fast then.22:29
jimmy51_caprea:   :)       totally a joke22:29
capreaI seem to remember there being no 64 bit flash for sometime22:30
jimmy51_benkay86: did you do the pre-release 64 bit version, or the 32 bit version with some mods?22:30
capreaso I think Ill go with 3222:30
benkay86The "pre-release" (its several years old now) of course.22:30
jimmy51_benkay86: ok.  i'll try that one...22:30
benkay86This is a bit off-topic, but has anyone here gotten OpenCL working on Lucid? I noticed there's a PPA for the ati-stream OpenCL SDK, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet...22:31
benkay86caprea: If you are doing scientific computing with high-precision floats or large integers, then 64-bit would clearly be the better choice.22:32
capreaits not high precision22:32
capreaits more like biology visualization software22:33
Guest52974flash has come around, happy 64 bitting!22:33
benkay86caprea: By "high precision" I mean "Uses the type double, uint64, or long int". Most scientific software does this.22:34
benkay86On the other hand, if you're software truly doesn't use 64-bit datatypes, then 32-bit is better because pointers to memory end up taking half the space.22:35
capreathanks benkay8622:35
jimmy51_hmm... no response from the keyserver for the 64 bit flash ppa22:35
benkay86jimmy51_: The Ubuntu keyserver is slow. Try a few more times.22:36
benkay86Oh dear, the keyserver really is down. Again. >-(22:38
CartoonCatok so still getting the radeon module race condition, or at least the error that says that the wiki says means it is. is it possible to get the mismatch error for another reason?22:52
capreawhen I unmount do I do unmount /dev/sdb1 or unmount /mtn/backup ?22:59

neosimagohi people: have there been anyone here looking to get the wifi working on their thinkpad T410?23:12
fbxxklAnyone here experienced with k3b I am trying to make a video file on my computer into a DVD but I am not sure how (if its even possible)23:13
benkay86caprea: lsof /mnt/backup to see if anything is still using it.23:14
neosimagofbxxkl: you'll need a app to create the dvd menu, there's some applications to do that; and probably some opensource apps to convert your files to the right mpeg formats and create the vob files you need in a DVD. search in synaptic for dvd... some apps should pop up.23:16
fbxxklneosimago: ok great thanks23:16
capreaok I just burned a new image of kubuntu but for some reason computer not booting from it.23:19
capreaI dont see int he BIOS the option to boot form CD23:20
capreabut I know Ive done it23:20
neosimagocaprea: did you check the crc on the image you burned from?23:20
capreais crc the m5h?23:20
neosimagocaprea: because you should also burn it as an iso, of course you know about that also.23:20
neosimagocaprea: md5sum23:21
capreaI burned it onto a DVD from the ISO23:21
capreaoh wait23:22
capreaits working once I selected USB CD Drive from the boot menu23:22
capreathanks guys23:23
capreabut whats crc?23:23
neosimagocaprea: then it sounds like the disk may be fine; just the boot source on the system needs to be verified.23:23
neosimagocaprea: crc (md5) is a checksum to verify the data is the same as it should be. (written, and read verification) ciculatory redundancy check.23:24
capreaI was able to do the built-in tool on the installer to check the disk for defects, it is fine. The boot menu is just mislabeled or misleading. Calling my CD drive a USB device23:25
Luija1006Hello, I just installed Kubuntu 10.04 but the resolution is not the best I can tell... how I can adjust it for my nvidia graphics? Thanks :)23:26
neosimagocaprea: that's probably it then right? verify the bios to boot the way you want it.23:26
neosimagoLuija1006: nvidia-settings23:27
Luija1006neosimago: where I can find that option?23:28
liddellHello friends! I have a problem here I wonder if anybody might have some insight on: I decided to switch my video card drivers from the default xorg ati one to the fglrx one, and my system started booting straight to a command line. I tried removing the fglrx driver and it gives me some error about not being able to remove it. I am booted into a liveCD right now - I tried the command chroot to try and run synaptic to uninstall fglrx23:28
liddelland put back the xorg driver on my non-live system but it gives me some error about not being able to fork py. Is there a better way to go about this? Thanks!23:28
neosimagoLuija1006: install it via synaptic23:28
neosimagoLuija1006: or run 'sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings'23:29
Luija1006neosimago: I can tell the system changed: before you had to go to hardware drivers and configure it, now you have to install it, pretty interesting :)23:29
Luija1006neosimago: Just kinda wanted to act like a linux noob this day lol23:30
