woflwhile I'm here... (this isn't strictly speaking kubuntu)... how do I make kNetworkManager start automatically again? The first time I logged in there was a problem with Dbus policy, so kNetMan said it wouldn't start automatically in future :/12:02
wofladding it to the autostart list didn't seem to work12:02
wofl*cough* James147 *cough*12:07
tsimpsonis it listed in System Settings -> Advanced -> Autostart?12:12
woflyep, that's where I added it. I just used "kNetworkManager" as the path...12:14
James147wofl: Check ~/.kde/share/config/networkmanagementrc see if there is anything in there about autostarting :S12:14
tsimpsonwofl: it's "knetworkmanager" (lower-case)12:16
wofltsimpson: good point. I think i did it lower case, but i'll have to check12:16
wofltsimpson: woops12:17
woflthanks :p12:17
woflJames147: i'll be looking in there anyway to try and fix it 'properly', so thank you too ;)12:18
woflwait :/ i take it back, the name was capped but the command wasn't :/12:18
tsimpsonis it enabled? (the checkbox should be checked)12:20
woflyes it is ;)12:23
tsimpsondoes it start when you run it manually?12:23
woflyeah, that's the weird thing12:24
woflI suppose i could try auto-starting a script with a "pause" or "sleep" or whatever instead12:24
wofli do actually have a Autostart=false in my networkmanagmentrc though :/12:26
James147wofl: set it to true12:26
woflso i'll cross my fingers for that to be the problem12:26
tsimpsonthe only thing I have in my knetworkmanagerrc is:12:26
woflJames147: or delete the line entirelly? :)12:26
James147wofl: that will probally also work as I dont habve that line12:26

cato37Torch: i dont have a choice. work requires it.23:53
senorpedroyes, it "simulates" a computer in your computer, its awesome23:53
Torchcato37: http://www.virtualbox.org/23:53
cato37maybe i wont have to partition the disk23:53
Torchcato37: well, blame your employer then, not linux. or kubuntu.23:54
cato37lol, i am not blaming linux nor, kubuntu.23:54
cato37i am not smart enough to get wine to work23:54
Torchcato37: wine is nothing more than a crutch.23:55
senorpedrocato37, its very simple, just type "wine $MONETONE_INSTALLER.exe" into the terminal23:55
Torchcato37: not relying on windows-only-apps is a lot smarter.23:55
senorpedroor you just click on the installer exe in dolphin23:55
senorpedrocato37, then wine will install it into the wine dir23:56
senorpedrobut there's a chance that it wont work with wine23:56
cato37i keep getting errors that the c directory doesnt exist when trying to install ms stuff23:56
senorpedrocato37, normally it should create the c dir automatically23:57
cato37i think it is because i i made two users, the 1000 one is my personal login, and the 1001 is for work, but i dont need the m$ stuff for the personal login.23:59
cato37i will log into it and see if it works from there. brb.23:59
