mikubuntuhelp!!! i have been having so much problems with the nvidia drivers on my friends install of 10.04, seemingly from problems between nouveau and lcd monitor.  so i just brought her a HUGE crt, but i still can't get the driver to work properly, only giving me 800 x 600 resolution.05:31
mikubuntuso i installed 9.10 instead, but still can't seem to activate the drivers, wont give me better than 800 x 60005:32

KuwangerHow do I launch the KDE configuration tool from the command line?07:29
moetunesit used to be kconfig but someone in #kubuntu might know do /j #kubuntu if you need to07:30

mikubuntui installed 10.04 on my friends machine, which has a cd drive top, and a dvd drive below.  the manual eject button on the dvd drive seems to be broken, and there is no pinhole to open it with a paper clip.  how would i set a panel launch command to open that drive?  on my laptop i set one just with the command 'eject' which works to open my singular cd/dvd drive, and it works great.09:24
KuwangerI wish this upgrade hadn't broken so much. :(09:37
ablomenmikubuntu, something like eject /dev/cdrom10:23
ablomenor the actual hd* or sd* device10:23
mikubuntuablomen: so, i would check the exact hardware name, and make the command eject 'hardware'11:01
mikubuntui should be able to go back and try that tonite11:02
ablomenyep should be easy11:03

KuwangerFor some reason, on first startup, my system reports about 49MB free with "free -m" (the right column of the "-/+ buffers/cache:" line).  If I restart the system, my system reports about 160MB free with "free -m".  It's like the first startup is leaking ~110MB.15:18

fuyaois this a tiny bug of xubuntu or something?16:12
schlaftierfuyao: Not a bug AFAIK. It might be that the panel crashed, for whatever reason, and was not automatically restarted. Xubuntu only loads the panel on startup when it was running earlier.16:13
fuyaoi remember the last time i start xubuntu the panel are running, along with my cairo bar16:14
fuyaonah w/e, is running now16:14
schlaftierXubuntu saves the session everytime you reboot, so it should start the panel next time16:15
fuyaogot it16:16
fuyaoand one more thing, how do i install the chinese software QQ on xubuntu, it's an instant massage software, i tried Eva, but it load for 10 seconds and then quits16:17
schlaftierfuyao: Pidgin seems to support QQ16:19
fuyaobut my QQ account on Pidgin seems to be disables16:19
schlaftierWhat happens when you enable it?16:20
schlaftierWhat happens when you try?16:20
fuyaoTercent disabled my QQ account whenever i go on QQ in pidgin16:20
fuyaois there anyway to use wine to install the windows version of QQ on xubuntu?16:21
schlaftierI have no idea what Tercent is...16:21
fuyaoTercent is the company that made QQ16:21
fuyaoall QQ account are controled by them16:21
schlaftierI see. Well, try asking in #ubuntu or #ubuntu-cn as there are probably more people familiar with QQ16:22

PavitraI seem to have borked an upgrade to 10.04.17:05
PavitraI can see the GDM background image and cursor, but no window where I might give my username and password.17:06
PavitraI tried googling, but either I can't think of the right terms or it's not a common enough problem.17:07
Sysipress ctrl alt f617:58
Sysiyou get terminal where you can log in17:59
Sysii think you should try 'sudo aptitude dist-upgrade'18:00
PavitraThank you, I'm trying that now.18:02
Pavitra...and nothing happened.18:03
PavitraMy package manager seems to think everything is okay.18:03
KuwangerHmm...that's a weird bug. :/18:05
Sysisudo service gdm restart18:05
PavitraIt comes back up the same as it was before.18:07
Sysisudo aptitude --purge reinstall gdm18:07
Pavitra(first stopping gdm)18:07
Sysidid it give error to terminal?18:08
Sysiyou can get back there pressing same keys as before18:09
PavitraIt's the same as before, and I didn't get anything that looks like an error to the terminal.18:10
PavitraThe only interesting-looking message was: "Processing triggers for ureadahead ...18:10
Pavitraureadahead will be reprofiled on next reboot"18:10
Pavitrashould I pastebin the whole thing?18:11
Takeasythis is my first time to use linux OS18:12
Sysihmm, it seems that your system think it's all right18:12
Sysi!hi | Takeasy18:12
ubottuTakeasy: Hi! Welcome to #xubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines . Enjoy your stay!18:12
Takeasyi tried 10.1018:12
Takeasythe one without installation18:13
Takeasybut i got some problem18:13
Sysi10.10 isn't gonna be stable for a while18:13
PavitraAre you sure? I thought 10.10 wouldn't be released until October at the earliest.18:13
Sysihelp for alpha/beta/rc is in #ubuntu+118:14
Takeasyoic, so i uninstalled it18:14
Takeasyi tried to install 10.0418:14
PavitraYou probably want 10.04. And, if this is your first time with a Linux OS, you probably want Ubuntu proper, rather than one of the variants like Xubuntu.18:14
Takeasynot install, i use 10.0418:14
Takeasyum.......i use xubuntu because of my laptop configuration18:15
Sysixfce ♥18:15
Takeasymy laptop18:16
Takeasywith only 256 MB ram18:16
Takeasywhile i tried to use 10.04 without installation, i can see the xubuntu logo18:17
Takeasyafter that, the screen went black18:17
Takeasyand the computer has no response18:18
Takeasywhat is the problem?18:18
Sysilive may not work with that little ram18:18
Takeasythe situation is same after i install it18:18
Sysithat intel graphics might not work properly18:19
Takeasyis it recommend to install it in windows?18:19
Sysiafaik not18:19
Sysiit should work, but it's different than norman installation18:20
Takeasyyes, the logo of ubuntu in 10.04 is less color than that at 10.1018:20
Takeasyany suggestion?18:22
PavitraNo idea.18:32
Takeasywhile i use 10.10, there are two apps keep poping up18:33
knomeTakeasy, there isn't bug reporting for 10.10 yet, since it's a development release18:33
Takeasyknome, alright18:34
knomeTakeasy, 256 ram is low even when system is installed18:34
pupuser25f294so i just DL Xubuntu, and it worked awesome out of the box... but when i ran the update, the system wont load up X any more18:34
pupuser25f294it just sits like a shit after the log in screen18:35
knome!language | pupuser25f29418:35
ubottupupuser25f294: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family friendly.18:35
pupuser25f294anyone know of this issue?18:35
Takeasyknome, actually, my graphic takes few MB away18:36
pupuser25f294it has done this now on 2 machines of radicly different setups18:36
knomeTakeasy, that definitely won't help.18:36
pupuser25f294well i am just saying it is not a machine issue18:37
Takeasy245MB is not enough, right?18:37
pupuser25f294its a broken packet18:37
pupuser25f294takeasy, are you talking to me?18:37
knomepupuser25f294, which xubuntu version18:37
pupuser25f29410.04 LTS18:37
knomeTakeasy, tbh, it's really quite a little.18:38
Takeasyknome, yes i know, thats why i change to linux OS18:38
knomeTakeasy, please remember that even xubuntu 10.04 is from 2010, so it definitely has more features than the old OS'es, like windows 95, which work well with 256 RAM18:39
knomepupuser25f294, have you tried booting with the old kernel?18:39
pupuser25f294yes i hae18:40
SysiTakeasy: you could try lubuntu or crunchbang18:40
knomepupuser25f294, 10.04 works when installed and not updated though?18:40
pupuser25f294but there are like 155 updates for me to systematicly isolate18:41
knomepupuser25f294, i'd suggest you to 1) search if there is known problems with your card + lucid 2) ask #ubuntu, since this isn't a xubuntu specific issue 3) file a bug.18:41
pupuser25f294i was hoping this issue was documented18:41
knomepupuser25f294, 2) because somebody there might know since there's clearly more people helping people out18:41
pupuser25f294try the #ubuntu channel?18:41
knomepupuser25f294, yes. as i said, it's not a xubuntu-specific issue18:42
dimkinwhere i can find boot editing tool in xubuntu ?21:20
dimkingrub editor or something21:20
knomedimkin, see /etc/default/grub21:22
dimkinok, 10x21:24
PavitraWell, this is... interesting. GDM is starting up on tty1 instead of tty7. Is that normal for 10.04?21:41

PavitraThis looks informative re: my can't-log-in problem: pastebin.org/35706323:02
_Techie_Pavitra, ill look at that and see if i can make anything of it23:18
_Techie_Pavitra, what version of Xubuntu are you using?23:20
Pavitra10.04 iirc23:22
PavitraI just discovered I get a different message if I run gdm from a root prompt instead of with sudo: pastebin.org/35709123:23
_Techie_hrmm, can i get you to drop back to a recovery console and use "sudo service gdm stop" "sudo service gdm start"23:24
PavitraIs a recovery console different from just going alt-ctrl-f2 or so?23:25
_Techie_you should be able to get away with doing it in a TTY23:26
PavitraIn that case, I've tried that and it didn't have any effect.23:26
_Techie_can you please paste your xorg.log23:28
_Techie_it will be located in /var/log/23:29
Pavitrajust a minute, I need to figure out how to get this into pastebin23:29
Pavitraworking from console mode23:29
_Techie_you can use <command> | curl -F 'sprunge=<-' http://sprunge.us23:29
Pavitra/var/log/Xorg.0.log right?23:31
_Techie_just a wild stab here, update your kernel and re install the intel drivers if your using an intel video chipset23:42
PavitraHow would I do that?23:44
_Techie_im not 100% sure23:46
_Techie_and im gonna have to go very soon23:46
_Techie_Sysi, you around... i need you to take over when i leave23:47
Pavitraall right, I'll poke around in aptitude a bit23:47
Sysi_Techie_: i'm going to bed soon also, and i tried earlier23:48
_Techie_Sysi, i discovered the reason and a possible fix23:48
_Techie_his seat problem is only a symptom, not the main error23:48
_Techie_i pulled this relevant information from his xorg.lol http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/Yg4fN6u823:49
Sysii'll see23:49
_Techie_i suggest to update kernel, re install the intel video driver and packages related to xorg23:49
Sysikernel is up-to date, reinstall it totally?23:50
PavitraI don't know.23:51
_Techie_Sysi, if its up to date, then dont bother with the kernel23:51
Sysii wonder if that could be one of many problems with older intels23:51
_Techie_but theres definitely a problem with his xorg and possibly the intel driver23:51
