harjotlovre: What where you on before?00:56
harjotlovre: 8.04?00:56
ussher_harjot: no love.  just the clock settings.00:56
lovreharjot: i was on 9.10 before. my home is not visible on the desktop00:57
ussher_im rebooting that system now to see if it needs a reboot.  shouldnt think it would, but worth a try.00:58
billlovre: are you on 10.04 now00:58
harjotlovre:: Im stilll on 8.04 but i think the activites thing are like widgets and things that move about00:58
lovrebill: yes00:58
harjotussher_: Ok00:58
billlovre: do you see the icon in the top right of your desktop00:58
lovrethere are buttons for "add new activity" but i dont get it, what do i add? nothing seems to change :s00:58
lovrebill: yes, i do00:58
lovrebill: says "Desktop" on oit00:59
lovrebill: says "Desktop" on it00:59
harjotlovre: drag widgets to your desktop00:59
harjotlovre: For example pull out the red bouncy ball00:59
billlovre: click on it and the click on Desktop Activity Settings00:59
lovrebill: ok00:59
ussher_harjot: that did it.  guess it needed a bit of force.  Thanks very much01:00
billlovre: do you see Activity01:00
lovrebill: yes01:00
harjotussher_: No probs01:00
billlovre: if u click on it what do you see on the right side of the window01:00
harjotussher_: I guess it didnt refresh but it changed it01:01
lovrebill: only two fields, first is "Type" and it says "Desktop" and the other is "name", also says "Desktop"01:01
ussher_harjot: the settings in  SYSTEM SETTING-> DATE & TIME  started to obey the preferences in  "Regional and language" -> "date and time"  after the reboot01:01
harjotussher_: So basically the values may not change, because they are in use already, and when you shut down, then it changes cause nothing uses it then.01:02
billlovre: if u click on Type, do u get a drop down01:02
lovrebill: yes, i can choose between "Desktop" and "Folder view"01:03
ussher_harjot: yeah there is usually a message saying the same sort of thing "you need to restart applications in order for settings to take effec" but i didnt think that would apply to the settings setting area.  Guess it does.  Learnt something.01:03

gorgonizerJames147: I have read on various webpages that it may be either the systray or Ktorrent, either which I currently cannot do without..14:47
James147gorgonizer: if it is ktorrent, then would not restaring ktorrent fix the problem (rather then restaring the system)14:47
James147gorgonizer: also you could try to find out what is actually causing the problem... ksysguard or top can help with that14:49
gorgonizerAfter 24 hours palsma-desktop uses 1.5GB of system memory, and closing KTorrent makes no difference at this point.. I would need to restart the system with KTorrent closed and run the system for 24 hours to fully test that it is Ktorrent causing issues, however, I am testing things with KTorrent at the moment..14:50
James147gorgonizer: sounds like its plasma-desktop then, you should just beble to restart that without needing to restart the system though14:51

jmuxHi - is there a way to disable the http cache (/var/tmp/kdecache-*/http) for "manual" downloads? Currently a manual download is saved to the target location and the cache which prevents me to download larger files, as my /var/tmp isn't that large.19:21

harmananyone here to help with ATI prop Driver MANUAL installation in Ubuntu Lucid20:37
shadeslayerharman: Welcome to #kubuntu :)20:37
shadeslayerharman: manual install? why not use the repository to install stuff?20:37
shadeslayerharman: assuming you know about repositories .....20:38
harmanyes i know20:38
harmanjust wanna do it MANUALLY20:38
harmanrepositories serving Catalyst 10.4 ATM20:39
shadeslayerharman: um... may i ask why>20:39
harmanand 10.6 is out20:39
harmani wanna try that20:39
macothere is no 10.620:39
macooh wait20:39
harmanheard at forums , it serves better 2D Acc20:39
shadeslayermaco: :)20:39
macoi thought you meant a kubuntu release number and got confused20:39
shadeslayerhehe :P20:39
Blueskajharman, which ati card ?20:40
shadeslayerharman: is your card compatible with the new drivers?20:40
shadeslayerusually older cards get phased out with newer drivers....20:40
shadeslayermaco: i wish we could do this : http://flic.kr/p/8br4mW : with kde :(20:41
harmanIts integrated ( 785g Chipset ) AKA Radeon HD 420020:41
harmanyes its compatible20:41
harmancurrently , UBUNTU installed by default ... X.Org X server -- AMD/ATI Radeon display driver20:42
macoshadeslayer: i thought kde had that before gnome... i recall one of the guys in the loco who used kde before me having a wallpaper that changed by timezone20:43
harmanGuys, i had been following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI20:44
=== joseph is now known as cannonfodder
harmanbut the issue is that in above link, 6 deb packages are generated , whereas i am able to generate only 420:45
harjotharman: Reading it currently20:45
harmanalso followed this for 10.6 and lucid specific ...20:46
harmanGuys, do i need to remove existing installed Xorg ATI driver before generating DEB Package for FGLRX ?20:47
harjotHow can you do that?20:48
harjotXorg is running currently isnt it?20:49
harmannewbie , can do everything  :(20:49
Blueskajharman, normally yes because the installed driver is the working default and usually you have to drop to a ttym stop the kdm service , then remove the old driver and install the new dribver20:49
harmani had installed ubuntu 7th time after corrupting Xorg Configuration20:49
Blueskajerr sudo service kdm stop20:50
harmanand Even Getty consoles don't view a login prompt ... :(20:50
harjotharman: Did you downlaod it of the ati website repository20:50
harmanATI Website20:50
harjotSo i think those instructions on the ubuntu page will work20:51
Blueskajproprietary ati drivers are notoriously unreliable ...I know , cuz I used one for a while20:51
harjotI agree20:51
harmanyes , they shud , but in those instructions , they generated 6 deb packages , whereas mine PC does generate only FOUR DEB PACKAGEAS20:51
Blueskajharman, you need only one driver20:53
Blueskajanyway , gotta go20:53
harman@ Blueskaj , i m talking about required packages generated by ATI Prop Driver , which install ATI Driver ( Single Driver Ofcourse )20:54

ubottuThere are several solutions for running other operating systems (or their programs) inside Ubuntu, while using the native CPU as much as possible: !QEmu (with !KQemu), !VirtualBox, !VMWare, as well as !WINE and !Cedega for Windows applications22:18
cato37my toshiba laptop has no sound. how do i fix it?22:19
ubottuIf you're having problems with sound see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP322:19
cato37what does it mean when a command has to have today's date--is that like 6182101?22:25
cato37upgrading alsa by compiling looks complicated. is there safer way to uprade it?22:33
claydohcato37: why do  you need to upgrade alsa?22:34
=== Philip6 is now known as Philip5
yaniyakovyes why?22:34
cato37i dont have any sound on my laptop.22:34
cato37it had sound when i installed the distro cd, but after the upgrades the sound stopped22:35
Walexcato37: there are no easy ways. Note that you need to upgrade only the kernel drivers.22:35
Walexcato37: also it is likely that there is another reason why the sound stopped.22:35
cato37the speaker icon is in the task tray and the slider bar shows when i manually change the volume22:37
cato37i was hoping going to the latest version would get the sound going22:38
