IIVQdon't know how to get rid of it though01:02

nUboon2AgePlease forgive me if you answered this Kubuntu beginner's question already -- I lost my connection.  How do you sync Kontact with a Palm Pilot and can you sync Kontact w/ UbuntuOne like Evolution does?02:47

DarthFrogI have no idea; I don't have a Palm device.  Nor do I use Kontact. :-)02:49
nUboon2AgeDarthFrog: ok, thank you.02:49
nUboon2Agealso I don't see kpilot in the current repository, so it made me wonder if it was still functional or if there was an alternative?02:51
DarthFrognUboon2Age: I just did "apt-cache search kpilot" and it came back with korganizer and a library.  So give korganizer a try.02:55
JontheEchidnaOh, the author of kpilot stopped making it. It's not around anymore :(02:55
nUboon2AgeDarthFrog: okay i'll check korganizer out, and thanks JontheEchidna for the info.  Do you know a current alternative?02:56
JontheEchidnaUnfortunately no :(02:56
JontheEchidnamaybe gnome-pilot02:57
JontheEchidnaI've never had a Palm, so I've never run either kpilot or gnome-pilot02:57

anthony_How do i reinstall grub. I assume i could use a live cd (usb)?10:25

anthony_moetunes: thanks again. there is no rush, as i can still use the storage space with mint, and get to it from kubuntu. just want everything set just right. i'll spend some time reading. Thanks again.10:35
moetunesanthony_: you could set up the grub from the os you want to keep using10:35
anthony_moetunes: if i set it up, while there is another one, would it just replace it? also i'm noticing that in synaptic, it shows grub is already installed in this distro...10:36

anthony_tsimpson: thanks. how do i just do grub from the live cd without continuing with install. (i thought i heard that was possible)10:41
Torchanthony_: you can always reinstall grub from a live cd10:41
anthony_do i just cancel after the partitioning part of the install process?10:42
tsimpsonthe grub installer is already installed on the CD10:42

anthony_yeah.  but just    alt/f2  grub?10:42
anthony_thanks for all the help, by the way. sorry to be a dummy10:43

BluesKaj'Morning folks13:54
alexs__hello world :)13:54
daleglassHi! It seems that for some reason KDE isn't using PulseAudio. In the sound settings, PA doesn't appear as an option, and knotify4 has the /dev/snd files open, so it's using ALSA. Is there a package that's missing, perhaps?13:55
tsimpsonas long as you have pulseaudio installed, KDE should detect it13:57
BluesKajdaleglass, lucid ?13:57
daleglassBluesKaj: yep13:57
BluesKajdaleglass, I noticed that PA wasn't included when I did a clean install 2 weeks ago , even after updates it didn't come down the pipe .Maybe the devs got the message that pci audio cards benefit more than the onboards so it's become optional in the repos.13:59
daleglassPA is running, though14:01
tsimpsonKubuntu never used pulse by default, only if you installed it manually or also have ubuntu/gnome installed14:01

DT`has anyone ever used a cellphone as a 3g modem via bluetooth?14:10
BluesKajdaleglass, PA works best with pci cards that have more extaensive options/capabilities than laptop audio , PA is basically redundant on a laptop , providing another layer of unnecessary audio processing . You might consider removing PA becuase it's probly conflicting with alsa.14:10

wwx22anyone know anything about shared libs?  I run file and it says a particular executable file is linked against Gnu/linux 2.6.9 and it doesn't execute21:00
wwx22I'm assuming I'm missing a package or something21:00
corigoJust (possibly foolishly) updated to the latest and greatest as suggested by the update manager, and on restart X11 complains and want's to open in Low Graphics mode. Any suggestions?21:03
wwx22You can try backing up you /etc/X11/xorg.conf file by copying to something like xorg.conf.bak.21:05
wwx2210.04 should be able to run without an xorg.conf now by autodetecting everything21:05
wwx22which works decently well on single monitor machines.  I have trouble with it on my dual monitor setup.  I have to create an xorg.conf that properly sets up the two displays21:07

daleglassHmm. What is a good tool for drawing things like diagrams? I'd like something that can draw polygons, arcs, triangles, etc, precisely. Like being able to specify the exact angles in a triangle21:49

Apollonovichso...since I upgraded to lucid, my machine can't properly interact with my dvd drives.22:28
Apollonovichto verify that the problem was ubuntu, I successfully did a clean re-install, and the machine had no difficulty booting from the drives, or installing from cdrom media.22:29

BluesKajthe wallet always asking for a pw for wifi connect after login, is getting boring...any fixes out there ?22:37
Apollonovichok, seriously?  the QC on lucid blows.  since I upgraded, things have broken left and right.  So I spent half my work day today reinstalling and getting everything set back up.  And my original problems are still there, only now the nvidia binary driver is also acting up.  this is retarded.  yeah, I get it, it's free, but don't put out a release until you test crap a little more.  I'm going back to suse.22:45
* bongfrog is having serious issues with network-manager and it's continuning insistance that it is unmanaged. I have googled for two days now. I though I had it working yesterday (well it was working but then I had to reboot) any tips?22:45
* bongfrog is running 10.04. Everything was great until a reboot a couple of days ago then boom. I thought that network-manager problems were fix after 9.04. I have changed managed=true in /etc/Networkmanager/nm-system-settings.conf, played with /etc/networking/interfaces GOOGLE has no more solutions that I can find. Help22:56
Apollonovichwhat exactly happened to the grub configuration on 10.04?  I can't find menu.lst, nor can I figure out how to get to a grub prompt or otherwise configure it.23:01
bongfrogApollonovich:   grub2 is very different.   Look at the ubuntu wiki for grub223:05
* bongfrog is not sure if grub2 is a ste forward....23:06
bongfroger step23:06
BluesKaj!grub2 | Apollonovich23:06
ubottuApollonovich: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since Karmic. For more information and troubleshooting on GRUB2 please refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub223:06
Apollonovichbongfrog: yeah, I just noticed the /etc/grub.d directory.  it's much more opaque than the old grub.  i'm really starting to miss the simplicity of the days of slackware 7.23:07
ApollonovichI mean, I use ubuntu cause I no longer have time to tinker with everything and just want things to work.  It's kind of infuriating when I upgrade and find everything broken.23:08
Apollonovich(moreover, when things have changed so much since the days when I *did* have time to tinker that I have to relearn everything in order to do so)23:09
* bongfrog also missed the simpler day of only using certain hardware that was known to work and just a commandline for networking. grin23:11
Apollonovichon that topic...i'm finding in the googlesphere that apparently all_generic_ide=1 is a solution to my non-functioning dvd-ram drives -- are you familiar with this option?  it makes me leery, since it sounds like the sort of thing that will cripple my SATA drives in order to make the legacy systems work.23:13
bongfrogApollonovich: the wiki has a good description of what to change for dual boot and such.  Not all that bad if you forget all you know of grub(1)23:13
BluesKajI'm afraid the efforts to develop a new release every 6 mos is misguided. It just creates too may problems for those using kubuntu on the job and at home.23:13
bongfrogApollonovich: sorry bro, I have not had to fight that battle yet.   Guess it is not so bad to have an old laptop sometimes.  grin23:14
ApollonovichBluesKaj: agreed.  I don't mind as much on my home machine, where bleeding edge is sometimes nice, but I'm really leaning towards just buying a SLES license for the office.23:15
bongfrogBluesKaj: I agree especialy since 10.04 is a LTS release and should have a bit more testing and a bit less new features (read as: use 9.10 and just the stable important fixes)23:16
BluesKajSLES license ? sorry I'm a home user and retired , so I'm not familiar with that.23:16
ApollonovichBluesKaj: suse enterprise == well tested commercial linux with KDE desktop.23:17
BluesKajbongfrog, yeah, I'm somewhat disappointed with lucid's lack of maturity, so to speak.23:18
BluesKajApollonovich, ahh23:18
ApollonovichI dunno...I'm extremely frustrated with lucid.  upon upgrading, I had nepomuk eating my entire system's ram...kernel panics due to bugs in the install kernel's disk subsystem...unusable optical drives...printing that worked from firefox, but not from any kde apps....the list just goes on.23:19
bongfrogApollonovich: on my music computer (runs the realtime kernel) i have had very good luck with fadora 12 but I am sure Network -manager would bite my ass there also if I used it,   grin23:19
bongfrogps if you have the network-manager ass bite take a look in /var/lib/Network-Manager/Network-Manager.state then restart it.       have great days all.....23:20
BluesKajNM is a real pita , for alot of wifi users ...I just dump it in favour of /etc/network/interfaces for my desktop linux boxes running ethernet23:21
Apollonovichexcellent.  yet another snag.  Apparently, in lucid, you can't get the nvidia binary drivers to work unless you uninstall the experimental nouveau x.org driver because of a conflict.  yet another example of shoddy/nonexistent testing.23:34
