DialingZeroTorch: What do you think will give me better results with running Windows programs, WINE or a VM?00:11
TorchDialingZero: i use a VM for most of my development stuff and anything that requires USB access (my garmin stuff)00:12
TorchDialingZero: wine is ok-ish for some games and that's about it, IMHO.00:12
DialingZeroTorch: I've noticed that programs such as games that were created for both Windows and Macs work much better in WINE00:16
TorchDialingZero: might be openGL games00:17
DialingZeroDiablo 2 for example, it's a 2D game though.00:18
TorchDialingZero: yeah, that works brilliant in wine. it's 10 years old, though.00:18
DialingZeroI'm a fan of old games.00:19

Andrew9jschall: what system did it originally come with?20:09
jschallAndrew9: the netbook? windows 7 starter, of course.20:09
jschallAndrew9: pre-installed linux netbooks are dead.20:09
Andrew9jschall: well there are some netbooks with android..20:10
jschallAndrew9: oh20:10
jschallAndrew9: win 7 starter.20:10
Andrew9jschall: have you tried to play video on windows?20:10
jschallAndrew9: nope, cleared it off after about 5 minutes of getting pissed at it while trying to make the kubuntu image on my SD card20:11
Andrew9jschall: ok20:11
jschallAndrew9: it's gone unless i want to use the restore partition i left on there.20:12
Andrew9jschall: i personally don't like VLC at all. try kaffeine, it works better20:12
coteyrOk, I ned help, this has been a prblem for some time. I have a my hp, it is great and everything works fine except I can get the multimedia keys to work. They once did, but sense the upgrade to lucid they have not. No keysyms, keycodes or even scan codes are generated. It's like there is a kernel moduce missing20:12
jschallAndrew9: and i don't.20:12
coteyrand to make it worse that is where my wifi on/off button is.20:12
jschallAndrew9: kaffeiene is xine based, just like dragon player20:12
jschallAndrew9: it won't play any differently20:12
coteyrHas anyone had a simular problem or know of a fix. Again, its not that I don't know how to map keys it's that the scancodes are not being generated.20:13
jschallAndrew9: i've tried both dragon player and VLC20:13
Andrew9jschall: i play 720p movies on my old p4 without any lags using kaffeine, when i try vlc video gets slowed down and goes out of sync20:13
moetunestry the -v switch with vlc in terminal to find out why it won't play20:14
moetunesor -vv even20:14
jschallmoetunes: it's playing fine, it's just not decoding/rendering it fast enough20:14
jschallAndrew9: that is similar to my experience except that dragon player still lags quite a bit.20:15
Andrew9jschall: i suggest you to try kaffeine..20:15
jschallAndrew9: in addition, flash video stutters at 360p on hulu, 480p on youtube.20:16
jschallAndrew9: html5 helps on youtube20:16
jschallAndrew9: but there's no solution for hulu20:16
Andrew9jschall: i could play 720p youtube videos (with minor lags) on windows20:16
jschallAndrew9: i also asked the jolicloud people if their fixes helped adobe flash, and they dodged the question and said "Flash support for Linux still needs some improvements from Adobe."20:16
jschallAndrew9: http://www.liliputing.com/2010/02/jolicloud-adds-support-for-1080p-hd-video-on-pine-trail-netbooks.html20:17
jschallAndrew9: is the news article i was referring to. i looked up the netbook in it, it has a gma3150 as well20:17
Andrew9jschall: gpu doesn't do much20:18
Andrew9jschall: especially on linux..20:18
jschallAndrew9: i understand that20:18
anoneemouseis anybody else having problems with the nvidia-current package20:18
jschallAndrew9: but i'm assuming they found a way to use the gpu.20:18
jschallAndrew9: look at the video, they're playing 1080p perfectly smoothly.20:19
jschallAndrew9: on the same piece of shit atom n450 that has trouble playing 480p smoothly on my netbook20:19
anoneemousei keep getting errors when trying to start kwin20:19
Andrew9jschall:  what is the screen resolution?20:19
anoneemouseVersion mismatch detected between the NVIDIA libGL.so20:19
anoneemouseand libGLcore.so shared libraries20:19
jschallAndrew9: 1024x600, which obviously is NOT 1080p, but it's still convenient to play 720 and 1080p because transcoding video is a pain in the butt.20:20
Andrew9jschall: they could fake 1080p and play 720p or even native 60020:20
jschallAndrew9: in a compressed youtube video like that they could put a 360p video on there and no one would know20:21
jschallAndrew9: but i doubt they're FAKING it.20:21
Andrew9jschall: what wouldn't you do for advertising?..20:21
jschallAndrew9: for a free product?20:21
Andrew9jschall: nothing is free20:21
jschallAndrew9: although, i guess they're refusing to help me out by telling me how they did it.20:21
anoneemouseoxygen is free20:21
jschallAndrew9: so you might be on to something.20:22
jschallanoneemouse: the billions of plants an algaes that work hard to produce our oxygen resent that.20:22
anoneemousethen they should unionise... until then its free20:22
Andrew9anoneemouse: how much solar energy needed to a tree to produce oxygen?20:22
anoneemousei dont know...20:23
anoneemousebut sunlight is also free. now that you mention it20:23
Andrew9jschall: run windows with K-Lite Mega Codecs Pack and see how it plays back is the only thing i can suggest..20:24
jschallAndrew9: that doesn't help me very much and it's a really big pain20:24
jschallAndrew9: what will it tell me if it does? what will it tell me if it doesn't?20:25
Andrew9anoneemouse: how much hydrogen fuses into helium and radiate solar energy?20:25
jschallAndrew9: if it does it will tell me that it's possible, if it doesn't it will tell me nothing20:25
Andrew9jschall: i'm telling it to you because the netbook i had was performing better with windows then your with linux20:27
jschallAndrew9: i don't want to use windows though.20:27
Andrew9jschall: why? two words20:27
slinker1it sux? :)20:28
jschallAndrew9: a lot of reasons.20:28
anoneemousehes deaf?20:28
Andrew9jschall: ok, name any20:28
jschallAndrew9: i shouldn't have to explain why i don't want to use windows in a fucking linux channel, this is insane.20:28
jschallAndrew9: excuse my french.20:28
anoneemousei think you should20:28
anoneemouseits only fair20:28
jschallsteve ballmer molested me when i was a kid20:29
jschallgood enough?20:29
jschallhappy now?20:29
FloodBotK2jschall: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.20:29
jschallsteve ballmer STILL molests me by being alive.20:30
Andrew9jschall: we are happy now =D20:30
Andrew9jschall: but that's just hatred20:30
jschalli have to go to work now, i posted my issue on the ubuntu forums and we'll see where i get with it (probably nowhere)20:30
anoneemousedid he come to your Home, make you page Down, Insert until the End and then Delete?20:31
Andrew9jschall: ok, good luck20:31
Andrew9anoneemouse: lol20:31
infotelinteresting process20:32
anoneemousemy kubuntu changed into fubuntu20:33
slinker1i blame ballmer20:34
Andrew9anoneemouse: i had to reinstall kubuntu twice because of some things just stopped working..20:34
anoneemouseAndrew9: i have forged ahead for a long while now20:35
anoneemouseit seems like everything is falling apart20:35
anoneemouseand it taunts me20:35
anoneemouseone day i turned my computer on and my sound started working normally in kubuntu20:35
anoneemousefor about a week it was sunshine and creampuffs, then i switched my computer on.... broken again20:36
anoneemouseall my opposite of < characters come out as > and i cant do double quotes "20:36
Andrew9anoneemouse: my advice: know when you need to stop wasting your time20:36
anoneemousei use ubuntu for4 things: browse the web, check email, do banking and chat with people20:37
anoneemousethe rest is all done in windows20:37
Andrew9anoneemouse: i use kubuntu to watch films and listen music. it's an old computer but it has nice audio card. i use linux because it boots faster than windows..20:38
anoneemousexp boots consderably faster for me than kubuntu, if you count the black screen ubuntu displays for 10 seconds during boot20:39
anoneemousebut from login screen to desktop, xp is about 100 times faster than ubuntu20:39
Andrew9anoneemouse: my kubuntu loads ~30 sec. windows ~5min20:40
anoneemousemaybe lying... about 15 times faster20:40
anoneemousedid you install every program on the internet?20:40
Andrew9anoneemouse: a giant 90GB windows xp...20:41
Andrew9anoneemouse: yes xD20:41
Andrew9anoneemouse: i use to install everything interests me20:41
anoneemouseso did i... but these days only what i need. the registry taught me a lesson20:42
anoneemousei know this is unrelated, but if you want to speed windows up considerably20:42
anoneemousehide desktop icons20:42
anoneemouseget a good reputable registry cleaner and run it20:43
anoneemouseclip the programs in your startup folder and startup registry20:43
Andrew9anoneemouse: the only major thing i hate in windows is the fact that it slows down after installing programs and using it for some time20:43
anoneemouseremove unused or unnecesery fonts20:43
Andrew9anoneemouse: i never use registry cleaners20:43
anoneemousednt use th ones popups and banners tell you to use. find one on softpedia to do it20:44
Andrew9anoneemouse: that 90gb win xp has been alive for 1,5 years20:44
anoneemousemy xp has been alive for 2 years... still blazingly fast20:44
Andrew9anoneemouse: the previous win xp's were cleaned with registry tools and never lived longer than ~6 months20:45
anoneemousei used to have lots of dyig windows xps as well... but i managed to tame xp20:46
anoneemousewindows 98... now that thing was wild20:46
Andrew9anoneemouse: i have to go now.. cu later20:48
anoneemousei like the way packagekit gives me a comma seperated list of my update history of 30 packages, it makes it so easy to read20:55
anoneemouseis there a way to downgrade a package?20:56
James147anoneemouse: not easily20:56
anoneemousei can now see th update that busted up my video driver20:56
anoneemouseive tried uninstalling the driver as instructed and installing it again20:56
anoneemousebut the same error just comes back20:56
anoneemousewhich graphics card do you have James14720:57
James147anoneemouse: An nvidia one20:57
anoneemouseare you using the driver manually downloaded from their site or are you using the nvidia-current package?20:58
James147anoneemouse: the nvidia-current ones, tryed the ones from the site but they dident work20:58
anoneemousethe ones from the site worked before the current version of ubuntu20:59
James147anoneemouse: saw something online that I think disctibed how to get them to work but I dident really care that much20:59
anoneemousepackages are supposed to be better anyway20:59
anoneemousebut now the nvidia current package broke itself20:59
James147anoneemouse: try purging it, rebooting then reinstalling it21:00
anoneemousedo you think it might work if i reinstall and then reboot21:01
James147anoneemouse: I would pruge the package then reboot before trying to install them again (might also want to remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf21:02
anoneemouseok... purged it, so i will reboot21:02
anoneemousethanks for the tip :)21:02

dominicdinadaare there plugins for kate to be able to edit other encodings besides utf8 i notice any files with different encodings. Does not allow kate to modify the documents... for instance searching through 1014 lines of a document to find 4 or 9 or whatever characters is pretty time consuming22:36
Drone4fouri recently installed kubuntu-kde and it changed the boot splash theme from an orange logo on a black background to tourqoise on blue.  how do i change it back?22:39
dominicdinadaDrone4four: I am looking for you22:44
84XAAOUXZSettings > System Settings > Appearance > Splash Screen22:44
84XAAOUXZahh wtf is up with my user name22:45
Drone4fourdominicdinada, what do you mean? you're actually creepin me out a bit22:46
crooks3o6There we go...22:46
dominicdinadaDrone4four: I meant looking for an answer but if it is creeping you out check the community support yourself22:46
crooks3o6Drone4four: Settings > System Settings > Appearance > Splash Screen22:46
crooks3o6Settings are in there22:46
=== john_ is now known as Guest99487
Drone4fourty crooks3o6: i'll try that in gnome. right now i'm on fluxbox. brb22:48
crooks3o6In gnome?  I thought you said kde...22:49
Drone4fourcrooks3o6, should i try that path in KDE rather than gnome?22:54
crooks3o6Yea that's where the menu settings are in KDE...  I imagine gnome would be similar22:54
kstarHi. How would I change a KDE setting while customizing a LiveCD? I'm following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization22:56
Drone4fourcrooks3o6, i navigated to Settings > System Settings > Appearance > Splash Screen and that's not what i'm looking for.  i want to change the grub boot splash screen not the KDE Splash Screen that shows when you load the KDE window manager22:58
crooks3o6oooh ok22:58
crooks3o6that's different the22:58
James147Drone4four: try uninstalling plymouth-theme-kubuntu-logo  (or look into configuring plymouth)22:59
Drone4fourJames147, i for certain don't have plymouth installed22:59
crooks3o6Drone4four: http://linuxers.org/howto/how-change-grub2-splash-images   <----  This should get you on your way23:00
crooks3o6You can skip installing the extra splash screens if you want.  The rest of the article will explain how to change the images.23:01
Drone4fourplymouth is fancy. the boot splash theme i currently used is prolly a 256 colour frame buffer23:01
Drone4fourty crooks3o6, i think that article should help23:02
crooks3o6All of the settings for Grub2 are in /etc/grub.d/23:02
