shady__i wanna delete them to restart kde00:12
james147 shady__you user config files are in your home directory (they are hidden, and begin with a . )00:12
james147shady__: "mv ~/.kde ~/kdebackup"  << run that in a terminal and it will move them to kdebackup (so you can restore them if you need to00:13
shady__james147 how to unhide the files?00:18

katsrcare there any DPI issues in Firefox for Kubuntu 10.10?00:23
Mase_wkkatsrc: what kind of issues ?00:25
Mase_wkcurrently using firefox in 10.10 and it works fine for me00:25
katsrcMase_wk: i'm getting really tiny fonts on Firefox than on KDE desktop00:28
scanis it intended that I cannot access my Wastebin in kde?00:28
james147scan: no00:28
scanonly says "malformed url: trash:/" no matter which way I try to get to it00:30
Mase_wkkatsrc: probably not a dpi issue, think you will find it's GTK font sizes. If you use the GTK-qt engine you can get it to use the same fonts as KDE00:31
Mase_wkor you can set it manually.00:31
katsrcMase_wk: thanks for the tip, i'll give it a try00:32
katsrcstrange why kmozillahelper isn't installed by default on Kubuntu.00:33
james147katsrc: probally because firefox isnt installed by default ^^00:34
katsrcMase_wk: it was using gtk-qt engine, it was a dpi settings in about:config for Firefox, it was set to -100:35
katsrci had to set it to 0, now it works00:35
Mase_wkok cool.00:35
katsrcjames147: there's a specially installer script for Firefox, it should install it.00:35
james147if you installed it form the menus then yes..00:35
james147... or at lease some kde-firefox intergration :p00:36
katsrcit's a good feature for Kubuntu00:37

zetheroois this the right place to ask about the netbook edition?01:57
zetherooI installed an application and need to edit the command of the shortcut ... how do I do this?01:58
ladynikon_zetheroo: right click on the shortcut and select properties02:03
zetherooladynikon_: there is no such option02:06
ladynikon_is this an icon?02:06
zetherooladynikon_: yep ...02:07
zetherooladynikon_: the closest thing I get in the right-click menu is "Configure Search and Launch"02:07
ladynikon_when i right click on my icons02:07
zetherooladynikon_: are you using Netbook Edition?02:07
ladynikon_maybe thats the problem. i am using the full edition.  I am sorry.02:08
zetherooyeah ;)02:08
zetherooit's a real pain :P02:09
ladynikon_zetheroo: maybe try in #ubuntu and see if anything knows anything02:09

macoladynikon_: is this the ladynikon i know?02:10
ladynikon_maco: indeed02:11
ladynikon_:) hi02:11
zetheroomaco: the command associated with the shortcut02:11
ladynikon_maco: there can be only one.02:11
macoubuntu-netbook and kubuntu-netbook are different. nowadays, kubuntu-netbook doesnt exist. its just that plasma-desktop or plasma-netbook are autoloaded depending on resolution02:11
zetheroomaco: ok ... but that's not helping much :P02:13
macozetheroo: now you make me wonder whether the menu is *still* hardcoded...02:13
macoi know it was hardcoded at a time02:13
macoi hope it's changed...02:13
zetheroomaco: so your saying it may not be possible to change the command for a shortcut?02:14
Daskreechmaco: can you swap to netbook and see?02:14
macoDaskreech: i'm on netbook....02:14

macoDaskreech: itd be more of "pull the source code and see"02:15
zetheroooh I see02:15
macobut the hardcoding... it couldnt possibly have included every .desktop file02:15
zetheroowhy could it not be as simple as right-click ... doh02:15

ieatkawfishHello all. I can see my itouch in amarok, but it claims (incorrectly) that there are 0 tracks. How can I fix this?05:12
valorieyou can query ubottu if any of those sound interesting05:12
valorieieatkawfish: what KDE version?05:13
ieatkawfishvalorie: 4.5.105:13
ieatkawfishvalorie: with amarok 2.3205:13
valoriethis might help: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PortableDevices/iPhone#Amarok05:14
valoriealthough in general, you just have to wait until Amarok finally gets it read05:14
ieatkawfishvalorie: says it got fix in kde 4.6 so now waiting needed... except for the time it takes to upgrade. Thanks for the link!05:17

rolandthis is my work computer, trying to keep onlt absolutely necessary stuff15:34
BluesKajyou should have as soon as the install was completed , it's not included by default due to legalities , so a seperate install is required15:35

DarthFrogAre you trying to copy or rsync to the same failing drive?21:02
munzirDarthFrog: of course no. I am trying to copy to another healthy drive21:04
DarthFrogWhat happens when you try to rsync?21:06
munzirDarthFrog: let's say I did rsync -av /baddrive /healthyhd, either the command just waits like this for ever without copying any thing or after some time the whole system crash with lots of strange errors21:09
DarthFrogWhich drive is your boot drive?21:09
DarthFrogAnd what partition is your /home on the bad drive?21:10
munzirDarthFrog: I am booting from sda5 I think which has no problem but my home partition which is sda6 is the culprit so I cannot copy hda6 contents21:11
DarthFrogTry this: Boot from a Live CD.  then: "sudo -i" "mkdir /mnt/disk &&  mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/disk && cd /mnt/disk" "dd if=/dev/sda6  of=home.iso"21:21
DarthFrogAnd use a partition on a healthy hard drive, other than sda, if you can.21:21
DarthFrogIf that works, that'll give you an ISO image of your /home partition in /.  You could then try mounting that ISO image and see if you can read the files there.21:23
DarthFrogBut if sda6 has bad sectors, then the drive is on its way to total failure.21:24
