chuckfhaving a major mental block here...how do I change the wallpaper in kubuntu 10.04?00:40

James147(might be configure desktop)00:42
chuckfI was looking under system settings00:42
James147chuckf: nah :) wallpapaers are per activity, so is easier to rightclick the one you want... also activities are under heavy development and dont have a system setting mudule yet00:43

James147... if flash is working they why does it matter if firefox does list it in its plugins?.. it clearly know about it if its using it00:50
James147phonic: and the flash crashing is a flash issue... they dont like to support linux as well as windows so we get stuck with a lesser version :( its never worked very well for me either00:52
phonicyes but some pages I visit, firefox says the version of firefox is older than 9.0.4 This is not the case as it is version 10.01++00:53

bazhangphonic, you wish to dl them?01:53

phonicYes when one watches video online one is essentially streaming which flash call download....01:56
bazhangphonic, lots of extensions in FF? same problems with other browsers?01:57

FloridaGuyjmichaelx, how do i add kubuntu-backports ppa05:15
jmichaelxFloridaGuy: however, some have had problem with upgrading to 4.5.0. some have even drowngraded to 4.4.x again afterward05:15

FloridaGuydont want to wait05:18
jmichaelxFloridaGuy: like i said, you don't have to wait. it is all available right now. just add the kubuntu-backports ppa, and 'sudo apt-get update % sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop'. all there is to it.05:20
jmichaelxFloridaGuy: sorry for the typo, that should be 'sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop'05:20

phoenix__strog: you have to edit some settings in grub11:36
phoenix__strog: locate the line "set gfxmode=" in grub.cfg and change it with a compatable video resolution you like.11:39
phoenix__strog: backup the grub.cfg before you start.take care11:39
phoenix_indcnt:what version of kubuntu you want to install11:40
_strogphoenix:is it like in xorg.conf?11:41

markitanyone recalls what effects have been activated by defoult in 4.5.x and were not in 4.4? Now, after upgrade, some pc crash after login15:21
markitone more question: anyone using kubuntu with ltsp?15:21
James147markit: I think its unlikly to be the desktop effects, they normally turn off if your computer cannot handel them15:22
James147markit: I suggest you try launching "startx" from a tty (after stopping kdm)15:23
James147and see what it says15:23
markitJames147: seems to me to remember that there are some problems with some hardware that tells kde "I can handle" but scrashes instead15:23
markitJames147: it's a ltsp client... I could try with a live though15:23
James147markit: either way, kwin would crash, not all of kde (at least I think thats what would happen)15:24
James147markit: try launching startx from a tty anyway, it should give you more information15:25
markitJames147: good idea, thanks, I'll fight with some other issues of kubuntu ltsp server now and then try it15:27
markitseems that using kde for ltsp is a sort of suicide, since is tested almosto with gnome and seems that kde people don't follow ltsp needs to make the system work smootly15:28
markitand is a pity, because GNU/Linux is multiuser, so everything should work smootly taking care of this important aspect too15:28
markitbtw, do you know also how to rename activities by chance ?15:29
markitI've tried d2, right click but nothing works15:29
James147markit: what kde version?15:29
markitbtw, 4.5.1 right click on the desktop has the option of recreate the default panel! I'm so happy for this15:29
James147right click > desktop settings > activity: "Name"15:30
James147markit: yup :) makes things allot simpiler... should also support creating your own designes... although you may need to know java script to do that :)15:31
markitJames147: I've debian here and kde 4.4.5,  but in my kubutu laptop I remember you click the "cashwhatever" (don't recall it's name)15:32
markitselect "add activity"15:32
markitthen a big pannel appears at the bottom with the default activity and the new one15:32
markitwith a strange icon like a "barcode"15:32
James147in kde 4.5.1 you name them in the desktop settings15:32
James147(create them that way though ^^)15:33
markitoh, no way to rename them in that stage? not nice15:33
markitthanks :)15:33
markitJames147: are you a developer ?15:33
James147markit: I am, not of kde though :)... (yet... maby)15:34
James147markit: as far as I know activities are under heavy development atm so you should see allot of chnages in the coming reales15:34
markitI've not fully understood them... and I get confused with multiple desktops15:35
markitwhat I miss for my productivity15:35
markitis a sort of "icon" that if I click runs multiple programs15:35
markiti.e. when I do ruby on rails developement15:36
markitI need a termina, netbeans, and some dolphin instances open in specific folders15:36
markitwhen I spend my time online I need konversation, firefox and iceweasel instead15:36
markitand so on15:36
markitwould love to be able to have activities with the "start related programs" icon15:37
markitdon't you think is a good idea? :)15:37
James147markit: I think actitivies might be what you want (not in their current state though) since what I heard was they plan to make it groups "tasks" (such as programs)15:37
v3nd3tta``yeah. i would use it 215:37
v3nd3tta``quassel, netradiant and amarok :P15:37
markitor at least the activity should have a "close activity" option, and recall their state (like kde does)15:38
v3nd3tta``or similar :D15:38
James147markit: and there are plans to make it start/stop applications in activities when you switch between them...15:38
* markit googles for netradiant15:38
James147although thats just what I heard :)15:38
v3nd3tta``uhm markit "Radiant" is a Program to create Game's Levels15:39
James147there are allot of plans for activites as far as I can gather, so I would expect them to change rapidly in thecomming releases, and expand allot more into more usefull functions15:39
markitv3nd3tta``: thanks :)15:39
v3nd3tta``here for quake 3 and mods :D15:39
v3nd3tta``even if the Game is 10 yrs old, it works like a charme15:40
markitJames147: maybe the problem is that is too easy to activate the activities, and not easy turn back or understand what you are doing15:40

theconartisti guess he said more before i joined17:15
James147(which was the orignal problem)17:15
odinsbanetheconartist: part of the problem is I have ubuntu and I'm trying to run kde, so I can't tell if some of these are real bugs or because I am just trying it out.17:15
James147odinsbane: if you have kubuntu-desktop installed then that is prity much what you would get if you installed kubuntu from cd17:16
odinsbaneThe screen resolution seems to be a known bug, with two fixes: I tried one that didn't work.17:16
theconartistis there any downside to to installing using the -desktop iso then installing kubuntu-netbook after?17:17

dasKreechWalzmyn: Isn't that all images?17:30
WalzmyndasKreech: well, I mean a little broader. I've no use for my optical drive other than installing my OS. I'd like to switch EVERYTHING to SD cards17:31
James147Walzmyn: I tend to install teh cd image to a usb flash drive and use that to install kubuntu... havnt used my optical drives in a very long time17:32

Walzmyndangit. Flash keeps crashing as I'm trying to watch ESPN's feed17:33
odinsbaneWalzmyn: are you using 'square'17:33
Walzmynis that the new beta? odinsbane17:34
dasKreechWalzmyn: yes but you can write all the images to an SD card anyway17:34
odinsbaneWalzmyn: yes17:34
WalzmyndasKreech: i'm probably going to start doing that now that I have an extra 2gb card laying around17:34
Walzmynodinsbane: no. I'm leary of flash, i'm real leary of flash beta17:35
* dasKreech doesn't have flash installed17:35
theconartistwell that sucks17:35
Walzmynalthough it is nice to see that the company holding the entire interwebs hostage has finally decided to build their app for 64bit computers17:36
dasKreechI'm not sure how they are holding anyone hostage17:36
Walzmynodinsbane: will installing square replace my current install, or go in beside it?17:36
dasKreechit's a choice to use Flash17:36
dasKreechone that has to be made conciously trained for and then paid for17:36
WalzmyndasKreech: yeah, it's ESPN's choice, not mine17:37
odinsbaneWalzmyn: I don't know how you installed flash isnt it just a .so file that you put in your plugins folder?17:37
dasKreechOh well yeah write an angry letter17:37
Walzmynodinsbane: i've no idea. I just installed it from apt17:37
dasKreechOr better yet ask them with great enthusiasm and shining eyes if you can please please please be part of the testing for the HTML5 website they are doing17:37
dasKreechYou ARE doing HTML5 as a replacement right ESPN? Right?17:38
* Walzmyn laughs17:38
odinsbaneThey put all these little features on their stream but it'd be really nice if it just streamed the station.17:40

Walzmynht eitem in Apt for Flash is "flash-installer" if I uninstall that, is it going to remove flash itself?18:18
dasKreechProbably not18:19
dasKreechthat's an automated installer that grabs the flash files. unless it lists those files as part of it's package then they will be removed18:20
Walzmynhow do I get rid of it? The new beta says to remove old installs before installing the new one18:20
WalzmyndasKreech: yeah, I was looking through the installed files, don't look like it's going to actualy remove flash18:21

sogreghaving a problem with my wireless card. new to linux and trying to get all the specific drivers i need. found some but its telling me i need to build them and i confused as to where to start. http://paste.ubuntu.com/495666/19:16
James147sogreg: what problem are you having? I thourght all intel cards just worked in kubuntu :) (at least the drivers)19:19
tomdavidsonhi, anyone know know to add mozilla prism apps to the main menu?19:20
sogregjames147: im getting disconnected randomly and i have to restart my wireless card to get access back, i cant ping the router when it happens and other computers on the network are working fine19:20
James147tomdavidson: rick click teh kmenu > edit menu (or run kmenuedit from krunner or terminal)19:20
tomdavidsonhi James147, sure and thanks. i can edit the kmenu, but i do not quite grasp the prism app19:23
=== phdp_ is now known as Shinka
James147sogreg:  so the drivers are working... at least initally... hmm... havent see that behaviour before... (I assume you have a decent signal strength), you could try using wicd (installing it will replace network-manager) or the gnome applet instead (knetworkmanager still has a few kinks, trying wicd should tell you if its network-manager or the drivers )19:25
tomdavidsonthere is the desktop shortcut, but i do not want a buch of apps in my desktop folder...  in ~/.prism/ there are folders for each app, but nothing that loos like an excutable or scritp to add to kmenu19:26
James147tomdavidson: not fimular with that app, what dont you 'grasp' about it?19:26
sogregjames147: thank you very much, ill give that a try19:26
James147tomdavidson: *.desktop files are created by kmenuedit... (they are plane text files the describe the applications, you should be able to open it in kate to find out where the executable is)19:28
James147tomdavidson: or you could move the *.desktop file to one of the locations kmenuedit looks at19:28
Jiminihi there. atm i am trying to install kubuntu, but i'm having trouble with my sata-hdd - the installer simply does not recognize it. my mainboard uses the ICH7-sata-controller. suse and gentoo have no problems with recognizing my hdds. i've tried the normal installation cd and the alternate installation cd19:29
Jiminiif i open a shell and take a look at /dev/sda with fdisk, it is recognized as expected. any ideas?19:29
tomdavidsonJames147:  ahhhh just but the exec line in to a kmenu entry? i got it now. thanks.19:29
James147tomdavidson: every enrty in kmenu is a *.desktop file :) the aplication that is run when you click on it is on the "exec=" line19:31
James147Jimini: does it give an erropr when yoiu try to install? for is just not listing the device?19:33
JiminiJames147: it does not list any devices19:34
Jiminifirst i thought of a kernel problem - but then i should not be able to "use" the disk in a shell19:34
Jiminij #gentoo19:34
Jiminisorry for the typo19:35
James147Jimini: weird, never seen the installation not list a device thats listed in /dev19:35
JiminiJames147: me too :\19:35
Jiminii've tried THREE installation-cds now19:35
* James147 prefures to use flash sticks :)19:36
JiminiJames147 i don't care about the number of cds i've burnt ;) it's just frustrating19:36
James147Jimini: :) sorry I cant be more helpful... have no idea whats going wrong19:37
Jiminiotherwise i could try to use an ide-hdd, but that would be just a workaround19:37
James147Jimini: not sure if its sata releated, I have had no problems with them19:38
JiminiJames147 nevermind, thanks for your effort though19:38
JiminiJames147: i've set up (k)ubuntu on a number of sata-discs yet19:38

BajKis there a way of disabling kde's annoying behavior of guessing file types by file name extension? (the same shit windows does)19:40
James147BajK: ... its the quickest way of telling19:41
BajKJames147: i don't care19:41
BajKI just dont want that19:41
BajKit knows the filetype without extension, so why does it try guesing if there is one?19:41
James147BajK: what problems is it causing?19:41
BajKJames147: i hate them, it looks bad and they are unneccessary19:41
James147BajK: they are needed by some programs...19:42
James147BajK: kde or not19:42
BajKJames147: you mean bad applications whose developers were too lazy implementing a file()-check? It's not about .config files or .20 in udev or something, it's just about .jpg, .pdf and such that I want those files without that stuff19:43
BajKI don'T want a file called "Queen - Innuendo.ogg but "Queen - Innuendo" and not just hiding that19:43
BajKis there no way of disabling that first-check-extension-then-filetype check?19:44
tsimpsonI suggest you ask in #kde (and perhaps a little politer than you did in here)19:44

James147same, it opens in the chosen app19:46
James147(for that file type19:46
James147sorry, that was renaming a *.jpg to *)19:47
James147but renaming a *.mp3 to *.jpg causes problems.... although why would you do that?19:48
James147BajK: personally I dont see a problem here... if a file has an extenstion kde (and I presume linux) uses that, if it dosent then it finds out... so if you want to rename all your *.ogg to * it should have no problem with that but if you rename them to *.jpg... i have to ask why are you doing that?19:50
BajKJames147: it's about the general term that file extensions are stupid and not about that renaming it to xyz is stupid20:01
BajKI know that I don't need to give my files an extensions - which I don't do - but if someone with windows sends me a file it automatically determins its type by extension20:01
