binaryBah does anybody know why I am not able to apply themes in emerald? I installed compiz etc and I still can't just select a theme and have it change.01:10
macoerm....because emerald is buggy as hell and hasnt been supported or maintained in at least 3 years?01:11
binaryWell that's one answer. Not the one I am looking for but none theless a answer.01:12
binaryYou use compiz fusion instead?01:12
macoemerald is just a window decorator for beryl (which is now gone, merged with compiz to form compiz fusion)01:13
binaryBecause I can't seem to get that working without breaking my windows and force closing :/01:13
binarythe other 2 decorators won't even run :/01:13
macoyou get no window decorations AT ALL with compiz??01:13
binaryI am not even sure I have this crap installed right >.>01:14
binarynot anymore at least01:14
macokde-window-decorator should just give you normal kwin decorations but maybe with some compositing added on (same as simply turning on kwin's effects which are very similar to compiz's)01:14
binaryI can't find up to dat documentation01:14
binaryOk so what do you use to get all those snazzy themes off of kde look?01:14
macoand gtk-window-decorator will look like metacity decorations but with some compositing01:14
macoi would guess kde-look would be having kwin themes01:15
macoand qt themes01:15
binaryI see01:15
binaryWell I can't seem to have it seect a theme01:15
binaryeven using kwin01:15
binaryit's the wierdest thing01:15
macohang on a sec01:15
macoif you go system settings -> workspace appearance01:16
macoit should list a bunch of decorations01:16
macoand at the bottom you have "get new decorations" which is an interface to pull more from kde-look01:16

luis_hello everyone i am using kubuntu hardy and i like to upgrade kde3.5.10 can somebody tell me how to do this please, i have been googling it but the directions that i have found so far won't work at all04:13
CorinWhat version of Kubuntu are you in? O_o04:15
macoCorin: he just said hardy...04:15
macoaka 8.0404:15
macothe last release to include kde304:15
macoalso...not supported04:15
macokubuntu 8.04 was not lts and so has not been supported since october 200904:16
luis_kubuntu hardy04:16
CorinI see.04:16
CorinI thought 8.04 was still supported...04:16
CorinIsn't that LTS?04:17
maco*ubuntu* and *xubuntu* 8.04 are LTS04:17
maco*kubuntu* 8.04 was not04:17
CorinI see.04:17
luis_so i am screw?04:17
macobecause it only had as kde options the 3.x branch which kde was dropping support for and the 4.x branch which was a developer release and not well-supported or very usable to start with04:17
luis_then there's no way that i can upgrade kde04:18
macoexcept to kde 4...04:18
macothere's one person trying to maintain kde 304:19
macoi *think* he's still going at it04:19
macobut i have no idea how it is or about the state of packages or anything04:19
luis_i actually don't want to but the thing is that the newest kubuntu release is kinda heavy for my old pc and it does slow down every thing i wan to do04:19
macothere's a new ubuntu derivative that's very lightweight called Lubuntu that you could try04:21
macoit uses LXDE with OpenBox04:21
luis_i see04:21
luis_let's take a look04:21
luis_thing is kubuntu is lovely :)04:21
luis_does this lubuntu has a website? cause i can't find it04:22
luis_just find it04:23
CorinWasn't Xubuntu supposed to be *lightweight*?04:23
CorinNow it's less efficient than Ubuntu, isn't it?04:23
luis_xubuntu don't like it at all04:24
luis_nor even ubuntu is to heavy04:24
luis_i love kubuntu04:24
luis_and this lubuntu looks pretty much like xubuntu04:24
luis_it looks like a weird combo between gnome desktop and xubuntu04:25
luis_actually it uses gnome04:25
luis_as i can see04:25
luis_but lightweight04:26
luis_hahahaha even the guy giving the tutorial in lubuntu gets confuse :P04:26
CorinI didn't like Gnome.04:32
CorinI'm a KDE user for life, no matter which distro I'm using. :)04:33
ubuntu_good nite to you all05:21
ubuntu_i need help please i did delete libc and i loose a lot of thing on my OS, how can i restore everything? is there anyway to go back to the wey it use to be before deleting it?05:22
ubuntu_right now i am using live cd05:23
ubuntu_hel pls05:23
DarthFrogubuntu_: Your best option would be to re-install.  You have really mucked up your system by deleting libc which, next to the kernel, is pretty much the most important package in the system.05:28
ubuntu_i know but how do i do that05:29
DarthFrogThe same way you originally installed the system.  Just install it again.05:29
ubuntu_like i said i am using live cd other wise i cant use my pc05:29
ubuntu_it need to be connceted to internet and it is not05:30
DarthFrogYou can use the LiveCD.05:30
ubuntu_i see05:31
ubuntu_but how_05:31
DarthFrogThere should be an icon on your desktop to install to the hard drive.05:31
ubuntu_kubuntu has no icon on desktop05:32
DarthFrogHow did you install Kubuntu in the first place?  Do that again.05:33
ubuntu_so you mean to resintall it again05:34
DarthFrogYes, that's what I told you originally.05:34
ubuntu_like doing a fresh new installatioon_05:34
DarthFrogAre you now clear on the concept?05:35
CorinYou might wanna back up your files first though, if you can. :P05:35
ubuntu_yes thanks05:35
ubuntu_my question was that if it is possible to restore the system to the way it use be wothout the need to resintall05:36
ubuntu_that was my questions05:36
ubuntu_do fresh installation i know how to05:36
ubuntu_other wise i wouldnt be asking05:36
CorinYou could devote your life to building a time machine...05:37

luis_help me to fix it please15:56
BluesKajluis _, open the kmenu/applications/system/hardware drivers , choose the recommended graphics driver for your setup , it will require a reboot if it installs properly , then check your resolution upon reboot16:07
luis_i only have 800x600 option16:08
russjr08Hey guys. I'm having problems with KMail (under Kontact)16:08
russjr08It's threading all of the messages by the Sender, and it is very confusing16:08
BluesKajluis_, have you installed the proper graphics driver for your syatem as described above ?16:09
russjr08I have tried purging both Kontact and KMail, deleting the mail account, and deleting some of the config files, but it still is threading it by the sender16:09
luis_my pc has no nvidia drivers16:09
BluesKajluis_, well we ned more info than that in order to help you16:10
russjr08Also, my GTK apps (I installed KDE over Ubuntu) look horrible16:11
BluesKajrussjr08, sorry , but I gave up on kmail due to it's clunkiness and difficulties16:11
rorkrussjr08: have you been playing with Settings > Configure Kmail > Appearance > Message List (or right click the message list headers?)16:12
luis_ok again i just install kubuntu10.10 and i just find out that when i was tryin to fix my screen res in monitor setting it only has 800x600 option i need it to be 1024x768 and i have been trying this: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution but nothing in there is working16:13
russjr08rork, I think something in there got changed16:13
coz_hey guys.. I notice in synaptic   kubuntu-desktop and kubuntu-full... what is the difference?16:14
russjr08rork, you were right! I got it fixed!!16:14
rorkrussjr08: nice, you can set your GTK theme in "System Settings > Appearance > GTK+ Appearance"16:14
russjr08rork, it seems like whatever I set that too, it looks horrible16:15
russjr08even Firefox looks like Windows 9816:15
rorkrussjr08: which options do you have?16:16
russjr08I even got the oxygen-molecule thing and tried setting it to that16:16
russjr08rork: right now, oxygen-molecule16:16
russjr08Under widget style16:17
russjr08I am using KDE 4.6 if it matters16:17
BluesKajcoz_, I beleive kubuntu-full includes the canonical partners repos and non-default apps16:19
russjr08I did install KDE over Ubuntu16:19
coz_BluesKaj,  ah ok   i noticed on natty it wants to remove the nvidia-common as does natty updates  but the kubuntu-desktop does not ..thanks guy :)16:19
BluesKajrussjr08,  then you are probly still running the gnome window manager, that could expalin it16:21
russjr08BluesKaj: How would I shut that off?16:21
luis_i just install kubuntu10.10 and i just find out that when i was trying to fix my screen res in monitor settings it only has 800x600 option i need it to be 1024x768 and i have been trying this: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution but nothing in there is working so how can i fix my screen res? help me please16:22
coz_kwin --replace ?16:22
BluesKajrussjr08, relogin using kde instead of gnome16:22
russjr08BluesKaj: Do you mean choosing KDE Plasma Workspace as the session?16:23
russjr08Because thats how I normally login16:23
BluesKajrussjr08, at the login scrn there a drop down where you choose your window manager, is that whatyou are doing ?16:24
russjr08Yes, choosing the KDE one16:24
rorkluis_: which graphics card do you have?16:24
russjr08I think part of GNOME is still running though (Maybe because I have GDM as default) because using KRunner I clicked the little process thing running and saw Nautilus (just killed) and gnome-keyring-d running16:25
luis_let me see16:26
luis_i can't find it on kinfo center16:28
luis_how do i find my graphic card on terminal?16:28
BluesKajrussjr08, alt+ctrl+F1 , sudo service gdm stop , then sudo service kdm start , then alt+ctrl+F716:28
russjr08BluesKaj: Will that log me out or anything?16:29
rorkluis_: it's listed in lspci16:30
BluesKajrussjr08, you'll log in then do the commands , nothing should change on your desktop16:30
BluesKajluis  lspci | grep VGA16:30

russjr08Just checked Firefox... Still looks bad16:36

russjr08Does Anyone else know what might be causing GTK apps to look like Windows 98?16:40
luis_ley me see16:41
luis_i don't think so16:41
BluesKajrussjr08, the only thing I can tell you is to remove gdm16:41
russjr08BluesKaj: Will that make GNOME stop working if I ever need to use it again?16:41
BluesKajyou can always reinstall ubuntu-desktop16:42
BluesKajunless you still have it installed , then remove that instead16:43
russjr08I still have ubuntu-desktop, is that what you mean?16:43
luis_nop i don't have that16:44
BluesKajrussjr08, yes16:44
russjr08I knew I should have just installed Kubuntu... it's just last time I installed it, it didn't like NDISWrapper which I need to use to get wireless working16:44
russjr08I think if I blow gnome away... it will destroy my network connection16:44
BluesKajluis_, sorry I was addressing russjr0816:45
rorkluis_: if xrandr doesn't work for you you can try creating an xorg.conf (see: http://www.osguides.net/operation-systems/217-how-to-create-xorgconf-in-ubuntu-910.html ) and addapt it (see http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-256470.html )16:45
luis_no problem16:45
BluesKajrussjr08, which wifi chip ?16:45
russjr08Realtek RTL8187SE16:45
BluesKajrussjr08, that should run fine on maverick without ndiswrapper , afaik16:46
russjr08It does... but only to unsecure networks16:47
russjr08My parents will not allow me to take off the security...16:47
BluesKajrussjr08, no wpa options?16:47
russjr08Nope... They like to use WEP16:47
BluesKajheh wep is less secure than wpa2 or wpa-psk16:48
russjr08I know! But they won't listen to me :(16:48
russjr08I even proved it to them...16:49
russjr08I showed them online articles16:50
russjr08Infact, I tried to get them to not even get this laptop, I wanted this other Acer one at Walmart, they wouldn't get it because this laptop had 50 GBs extra space......16:52
russjr08I wonder....16:53
BluesKajrussjr08, http://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse#wpasupplicant16:53
russjr08BluesKaj: ?16:54
BluesKajrussjr08, check it out16:54
russjr08I'm looking at it, what is it for?16:54
linuxjoint me16:54
BluesKajrussjr08, it's for setting up wifi using wpa supplicant which will work without ndiswrapper16:56
russjr08But I don't have wpa16:56
BluesKajyou will16:56
russjr08My parents wont let me use WPA for the router, they want WEP16:56
BluesKajrussjr08, are you dual booting W7 and Kubuntu ?16:57
russjr08Well Windows 7 and Ubuntu with KDE16:57
BluesKajthen the salesman probly convinced your parents that wep is safe enough because that's what windows default uses if the router is set to wep16:59
russjr08No, my dad just thinks he knows everything about computers...17:00
russjr08He let the hard drive fail in our new Dell Inspiron 15R17:00
russjr08We heard clicking and everything, saw all the signs, tried to tell him...17:00
russjr08He wouldn't call Dell finally until it stopped working17:00
BluesKajwindowsn will use wpa as well if the router is set to use it , it's just as simple set up and much more secure ...wep is easy to break into by someone who wants to get in17:01
russjr08Yup, I know17:01
russjr08Anyways, I bet kubuntu will work with ndiswrapper if I used ndiswrapper from the command line instead of using ndisgtk17:03
russjr08Maybe that was the problem?17:03
russjr08I might just have to make a persistent live usb of Kubuntu 10.10 and try that out17:04
BluesKajI'm an old computer user , retired technician and if you parentsa are using the laptop to do their banking with wep security then they're living in a dream world if they think they can't be trojaned and keylogged17:04
russjr08Yeah, my dad should know. He works at a security place for the government...17:05
BluesKajI dunno who's been giving them advice, but whoever it is doesn't know his pc security from a hole in the ground.17:06
russjr08Infact, were using an old SBC router (which is now AT&T). We have been trying to convince him to get a new router for a very long time, he even picked one up at Office Depot (for $40) and then put it down saying "I can find a cheaper one somewhere else"17:07
russjr08I can't even get 1.50 mb/s with that old thing17:07
russjr08How much cheaper can you get then $40 for a router!17:08
spider623any one knows how to intergrade ubuntu one in dolphine?17:08
BluesKajnot much, and they aren't very good at that price ...should pay about 60 minimum for a decent router17:08
westmi49319spider623,  what does the website say?17:09
russjr08Exactly, I'm just going to get one for my birthday coming up in March, and connect to that one... Let everyone else enjoy the speed but him17:09
BluesKajspider623, install nautilus17:09
spider623i'm using it but i want to know if there is a way to use it with dolphin17:10
* BluesKaj doesn't see the benefits of ubuntu one ...maybe ask in #ubuntu17:11
russjr08Anyways, I'm going to go check if I have an ISO of kubuntu 10.10 in Windows (I have a lot of Linux ISOs there) and try it17:11
russjr08See you guys soon17:11
westmi49319is there a channel for linux mint?17:13

shane4ubuntuDarthFrog: ohh, nevermind, got it, had to change the setting in the mp3 player that worked.21:30
Out_Coldmind you i was looking for a package with kde in the name..21:30
shane4ubuntuDarthFrog: yeah, it was the player settings, got it, thanks though21:30
DarthFrogshane4ubuntu:  What was the errant player setting?21:30
shane4ubuntumost of the things I have used (limited experience) they just autoconnect, and I never have to do anything21:31
shane4ubuntuDarthFrog: yep, apparently21:31
Out_Coldshane4ubuntu: that's not the case with linux ;)21:31
DarthFrogshane4ubuntu: No, what was the specific setting you had to manipulate?21:31
shane4ubuntuOut_Cold: oh it has gotten loads better, it used to be worse, and I don't mess with a bunch of mp3 players this was a birthday gift for my son21:32
shane4ubuntuDarthFrog: it was: Online Mode:  1.  Multidisk mode  2.  Normal mode  3.  Encrypted mode      1 didn't work and 2 worked.21:32
DarthFrogshane4ubuntu:  Good to know.  That might be useful to someone else in the future.21:33
Out_Coldi have no DE :(21:33
shane4ubunturight, I didn't think to check for a setting first.21:33
shane4ubuntuOut_Cold: apt-get install kubuntu-desktop21:33
Out_Coldya, that's been running since i found out it was kubuntu- and not kde-21:34
shane4ubuntuOut_Cold: yep, kubuntu-desktop ubuntu-desktop  and I think there are a few more for future reference.21:34
Out_Coldi have a bitcoin app but as far as i can tell, it runs in GUI, and I've been waiting to get this desktop up so I can get my $$$ lol21:35
Out_Coldand my system is definitely a frankenstien box... debian and ubuntu live DO NOT like her at all21:36
DarthFrogOut_Cold: you don't need to run KDE to run KDE apps.  As long as the proper libraries are installed.21:36
Out_Coldi still need a DE tho lol21:36
DarthFrogOut_Cold: Have you logged out and back in again?21:36
Out_Coldi'm in CLI only atm21:36
Out_Coldit's still installing the desktop21:37
Out_Cold44% done21:37
DarthFrogGo have a coffee.  :-)21:37
Out_Coldor beer! <321:37
DarthFrogBeer and system administration can be a volatile combination. :-)21:38
Out_ColdDarthFrog: only if your beer gets into the PSU..21:38
Out_Coldgeez if it wasn't for computers and people being so graphic orientated, i'd probably stick to screen, finch, elinks and bash lol21:41
DarthFrogOut_Cold: Have you ever had a look at ratpoison for a window manager?21:42
Out_ColdDarthFrog: i've heard of it... i'm a fan of key combos but i just don't have much time for that now i'm back in school... someone had said they use ratpoison and something else i believe for their graphics and WM21:43
Out_Coldi 'need' shell much more than i need a compatible and suitable WM or DE21:44
Out_Coldi just was getting sick of gnome and hoped that kde4 has fixed some bugs since the last time i tried21:45
DarthFrogKDE SC 4.6 rocks!21:45
Out_Coldi remember trying it when it was 3.6->4.0? was very buggy21:46
DarthFrogKDE 4.0 was not intended for general release, it was intended for devs only.  I think calling it a .0 release was a mistake.21:46
Out_Coldwhat ever the case, it still needed time to get fixed..21:47
* Out_Cold should have installed elinks before kde :(21:50

DonjrHow do I do that?22:58
Donjror what do you mean by it?  I had to use the function button to turn on the wireless on the laptop and then restart for the wireless options to be shown in the network manager in the first place.22:59

FloodBotK3Belial6663: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.23:11
CorinBelial6663: Always ask before mounting. ;)23:11
yofelhm, how are you mounting it and what are you mounting?23:11
CorinIt's obviously an external hard drive.23:12
Belial6663im using dolphin and it's an ext423:12
yofelnot obviously, sdb1 could be everything23:12
CorinBut I was right, wasn't I? :o23:12
yofelhm, I wonder why that would fail then..23:12
yofelBelial6663: can you mount in from the command line?23:13
Belial6663i can try. im not real familiar with the mount command, what would the line be?23:14
yofel'sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt' for example23:14
Belial6663gives me the same error23:16
Belial6663it's my second harddrive if that helps23:16
SnowhogBelial6663: What is it formatted to?23:16
CorinBelial6663: We already knew it was a secondary hard drive. :o23:18
Belial6663no it's not an external23:18
SnowhogBelial6663: In the console, type: sudo fsck /dev/sdb123:18
CorinI know. That's why I said "secondary" the second time.23:19
Belial6663Snowhog Thanks that worked23:20
