Whisky_I tried updating to the latest KDE in my Kubuntu 10.10. For some reason, the update got stuck half way and I had to switch my laptop off. Now, my computer won't boot. It get's stuck half way while starting services or something and never actually gets past the Kubuntu boot splash.00:52
yofelWhisky_: if you can get to a shell with ctrl+alt+f2, login there, get a wired connection, fix the package management with 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' and 'sudo apt-get -f install' then finish the update with 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' - and finally make sure nothing got removed with 'sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop'01:21
yofelif not, it's easiest to chroot from a live disk01:21
yofeltrying to boot in resque mode might also help if you can get to a root shell01:23
Whisky_I can get to shell with networking but can't get internet01:28
Whisky_why doesn't wireless work in shell?01:28

mutsi am having problems with creating a custom kde menu structure, and autopopulating it with desktop files02:44
mutsi used to be able to do this easily in kde 3.502:44
mutsbut the same method does not seem to work for kde402:44
mutsand i cant find any docs about it02:44
mutsany insight by anyone ?02:44
iszakI noticed KDE created dot directory files everywhere, how do I prevent this?02:57
BentFranklinHow do I get Kubuntu to recognize 'European' and other characters?  For example, Bela Fleck has an accent over the e in Bela.  iTunes running from Windows displays it correctly.  Windows displays it correctly.  In Kubuntu, ls displays B?la Fleck.  In emacs dired it displays as B\202la Fleck.  Do I need Unicode or iso/latin or something like that?  What package do I install?03:53
RiddellBentFranklin: kde supports unicode universally04:44

bvierra|lhey guys, so I am new to kubuntu... been using linux for 13+ years now... Been using Windows (work req) or OSX for last 2-3 years as desktop... any good articles on customizing ubuntu?08:01
Daskreechbvierra|l: I suppose by that you mean Kubuntu :)08:10
DaskreechWhat would you like to customize?08:10
bvierra|lyea... missed that k :)08:10
bvierra|lnot sure really, havent used *nix as a desktop in many years08:10
bvierra|lI figure there are many new things :)08:11
caixiageekosopher: thx08:11
bvierra|lie the 'must' haves for desktops etc08:12
geekosopherbvierra|l: must haves would have already been installed ;)08:13
bvierra|llol fair enough08:13
geekosopherapart from that, to tweak the looks, see kde-look.org08:13
bvierra|lany not must haves but really cool awesomnessly sweet things08:14
bvierra|lall I really do is web browsing / irc / web / perl development08:14
geekosopherit is anyways integrated into kde in many parts08:14
bvierra|lcool will look into it08:14
bvierra|lyea used kde with gentoo back in the day08:15
bvierra|lnew company had a policy of windows only08:15
geekosopherbvierra|l: I use firefox for browsing08:15
bvierra|lfinally got that restriction removed08:15
bvierra|lyea I use FF and Chrome08:15
geekosopherfor irc, though there is Quassel for gui minded, I use irssi08:16
bvierra|lI am using Quassel :)08:16
geekosopheram not that much in to web or perl development08:16
bvierra|land then pidgin08:16
bvierra|lKomodo for IDE08:16
geekosopherbvierra|l: pidgin is for gnome08:16
Daskreechbvierra|l: How did you get the restriction removed?08:17
bvierra|lDaskreech: got high enough up and made the change08:17
bvierra|lwhen you run IT, you can decide what happens08:17
DaskreechThe Obama strategy?08:18
bvierra|lI removed the restriction for the developers08:18
bvierra|lwhich only made sense, all of our servers are linux08:18
DaskreechI'd try that but Our company has a no Windows Policy and I don't have the motivation to change that08:18
bvierra|lso we used windows to run putty08:18
DaskreechI have an outside contract with smeone who has linux and unix server and a single Windows machine on the network for people  to login and run putty from08:19
DaskreechI find it highly amusing08:19

tcpa252Could anyone help to fix corrupted? broken? icons in 10.10? Look at this pic http://www.ipix.lt/images/43451229.png13:11
tcpa252main menu icon, show desktop icon are broken... is it a bug?13:12
Tm_Ttcpa252: seems like a cache issue or such13:15
tcpa252Tm_T: could you please tell me, how do i fix this?13:15
BluesKajtcpa252, have you tried setting the icons in systemsettings/application appearance?13:16
tcpa252BluesKaj, no i haven't, sorry if i sound dumb - i'm kde newbie, how do i do this?13:18
Tm_Ttcpa252: if toggling icon theme back and forth doesnt help, you can try removing /var/tmp/kdecache-$USER/icon-cache.kcache while logged out from the desktop13:18
BluesKajtcpa252, kmenu/applications/settings/system settings/application appearance13:19
=== antonio_ is now known as holo
=== holo is now known as holocub3
tcpa252Tm_T: installing a new icon pack and enabling it half fixed my problem13:25
Tm_Ttcpa252: so you propably need to clean up your icon cache13:25
tcpa252Tm_T: so i should run 'sudo rm -Rf /var/tmp/kdecache-eduard/icon-cache.kcache' while at login screen from tty?13:27

Peace-james147: :P14:26
Peace-james147: if it continue in this way i will try a compiling distro14:27
james147Peace-: i wouldnt ^^ I would go for something thats easy to compile in, but still has bianaries... compiling everything is a pain14:27
Peace-james147: ya14:28
james147^^ thats one reason i switch to arch :p14:28
Peace-james147: did you note that truetype is not activated on kde?14:28
Peace-james147: i ahve turned on and wow14:29
Peace-i can read better14:29
james147in system settings?14:29
Peace-james147: systemsettings14:29

Peace-james147: http://wstaw.org/m/2011/03/12/plasma-desktopGV1468.jpg14:30

james147Peace-: yeah, didnt make any difference when i enabled it14:31
Peace-try the other14:31
Peace-beacause depends from the screen14:31
james147bgr is uncommon as far as i know14:32
Peace-:) it may14:32
james147bah, i cant see a difference (yes i am restarting an applicaiton to check)14:33
Peace-james147: i change the value14:33
Peace-then i open the menu or dolphin14:33
james147i was restarting dolphin14:33
BluesKajhmm, X froze while trying to resize a window , input devices , mouse &KB totally unresponsive,...still a few glitches , not sure whether it's kde or X .14:34
BluesKajguess it's a friendly reminder about using a dev OS, natty alpha 3..otherwise it's very stable now , even amarok doesn't crash anymore14:36
james147BluesKaj: yeah, dont be fooled by stability in an alpha, it can always break on the next update horribly14:37
* BluesKaj wishes there was a #kubuntu+1 chat14:38
BluesKajthose guys at #ubuntu+1 are very gnome-centric14:38
james147BluesKaj: like most of ubuntu14:41
BluesKajI should start lobbying for a supported kubuntu+1 chat or something similar dedicated to kde users14:41
james147BluesKaj: the reason why they dont do that is because it would be empty14:42
james147... or near enough to not be useful14:42
BluesKajthe kde chat isn't much help ..populated by those guys with the funny "hats" :)14:42
BluesKajwell, a few fans would be better than ppl who don't give a sh*t about kde14:43
james147BluesKaj: the problem is the few fans will be in #ubuntu+1 and will answer you if they are there14:44
Peace-BluesKaj: here is working nice14:44
BluesKajjames147, yeah that's the qualifier ."if they are there" . maybe they'd be in kubuntu+1 if it was supported by freenode14:47
BluesKajI don't mean to sound resentful ,but I do feel a bit left out.14:49
james147BluesKaj: I think they are more likly to be in ubuntu+1, then kubuntu+1... even if it exists, just for the better support of the core utils14:50
james147the man problem beeing that there just isnt enough suport for kubuntu14:50
BluesKajjames147, don't be offended , but I think if kubuntu+1 existed , then the core-utils supprort ppl would migrate anyway14:52
james147BluesKaj: i am no offended, just saying what I think :) and since most o the core utils are desktop indpendent then most of the suport would come from gnome users... thus they wont migrate14:53
BluesKajthen we should include development OSs here as well, without being sent to ubuntu+114:54
Daskreechjames147: then they should help with KDE in #ubuntu+114:59
james147Daskreech: they do15:00
james147... as much as any one can...15:00
BluesKajDaskreech, there is some but it's not very helpful. more like an afterthought IMO15:00
Peace-BluesKaj: have you tried ksnapshot ? and send to picasa?15:00
Peace-BluesKaj: i guess there is a bug15:01
james147Daskreech: there is a limitation to what you can make volunteers do ^^ and since all these channels are mostly run by volunteers there is not much that can be done :(15:01
BluesKajno, Peace- , I just rebooted15:01

Natafanti, you may install call what qt-graphic... component, it enable us easy setting xrender or opengl in system settings17:10
rorkfanti: what also might help is edit .kde/share/config/kwinrc and under [compositing] change: CheckIsSafe=true & DisableChecks=true if I remember correctly, that fixed it for me once.17:12
fantix restart.... brb17:15
finomodHow do I know which command is used for a particular kde app, so I can use it through commandline17:23

=== MuzerAway is now known as Muzer
DarthFrogfinomod: When the app is running, click on the "Help" button and select "About <appname>".17:34
DarthFrogOr, from the command line, type "ps auxww | less", which will show you everything running on your system.17:36
finomodDarthFrog: Thank you so much.17:38
DarthFrogAlso, for a graphical interaction, run "ksysguard", which will also show you what's running.17:40

BluesKajpeaxe I have samba working , but I don't like using it to connect to our windows pcs ..the files transfer speed is much slower than using smb/cifs , which I was using in maverick19:01
BluesKajerr Peace- ^19:01
Hutley_Daskreech: i use the ubuntu-tweak to remove packages downloaded after his instalations and remove old kernels too...19:08
DaskreechHutley_: It will work19:08
Hutley_I know but, if there is any KDE native would be better.19:09
Peace-sudo apt-get install ausadfasdfasd ; sudo apt-get clean ?19:11
DaskreechHutley_: if you are just removing his packages then apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoremove will do the same thign19:11
Hutley_Daskreech: ok. thanks19:11
DaskreechHutley_: you can probably drop it as a cron job or a post-inst script so it runs every night/week or right after every installation19:12
Hutley_cron job? I will search about it.19:13
BluesKajyeah , apt-get clean and autoremove are commands I use after application upgrades19:13
ubottucron is a way to schedule execution of software/scripts. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CronHowto  -  There is also a decent Howto at http://www.tech-geeks.org/contrib/mdrone/cron&crontab-howto.htm19:15
BluesKajaltho i prefer aptitude , probly out of sheer habit more than anything and cuz I have the commands aliased due to my laziness :)19:16
Hutley_Daskreech: great! Thanks again!19:17
DaskreechBluesKaj: damn linux and it's catering to laziness?19:17
DaskreechHutley_: Sure enjoy.19:18

ubottukcron (source: kdeadmin): program scheduler frontend - transitional package. In component main, is optional. Version 4:4.5.1-0ubuntu1 (maverick), package size 18 kB, installed size 56 kB19:19
DaskreechOh sweet :)19:19
DaskreechHutley_: ^^^619:19
BluesKajDaskreech, yeah, catering to laziness is a benefit in my book :)19:21
DaskreechBluesKaj: very much so19:22
Daskreechbut I still think one of the things I really dislike with linux is how well it caters to that19:23
Daskreechit's crippling19:23
BluesKajDaskreech, well. I'm old so it's better than the constant ongoing fight keeping windows safe.19:26
DaskreechOh well it's wonderful for old peopl :)19:26
DarthFrogDaskreech: Have you ever read any Robert Heinlein?  Remember the story about the truly lazy man?  That describes Unix admins and developers. :-)19:27
DaskreechBut you can customize your computer so much and it carries it from upgrade to upgrade so seamlessly that you can really forget what the long path is19:29
DaskreechYou go to another computer and argh I don't know how to use this!! where are the shortcuts?19:29
DaskreechThen the men come to put you in white coat so you will stop crying in the corner of the room and cursing Ritchie for coming up with UNIX19:30
Daskreechor was that a little too specific >_>19:31
BluesKajRobert Heinlein, now there's a blast from the past.,I can remember seeing his stuff in libraries , but I can't recall if I ever read any of his books19:31
DarthFrogDaskreech: Dennis Ritchie is the father of the C language.  Ken Thompson is the father of Unix.19:32

DrknzzHi guys! How can i bind the Windows//Meta key to the KMenu?20:17
Drknzz!es | siniestro20:18
ubottusiniestro: En la mayoría de canales de Ubuntu se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español o charlar entra en el canal #ubuntu-es. Escribe "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y dale a enter.20:18
WalzmynDrknzz: far as I know, a single-key shortcut is not possible in KDE20:22
DrknzzWalzmyn: Oh... sad.... maybe i can code a Keyboard-hook in C++ and fire the Kmenu myself?20:22
WalzmynI have no idea20:23
Walzmynafter getting used to krunner, I almost took the kmenu off my workspeace20:23
DrknzzWalzmyn: KRunner?20:27
Walzmynsingle greatest invention of the GUI desktop20:27
WalzmynThat and being able to hit alt+left click to move a window are the two things I miss the most when I am forced into Winders20:28
DrknzzWalzmyn: Ah20:30
DrknzzThats extremely handy20:30

tsimpsonDrknzz: the problem is that in windows the Win is a completely independent key, like most other keys. but in Linux it's a modifier key, like shift or ctrl, so it's used to modify another key20:40
tsimpsonusually though the menu is bound to Alt-F120:40
Drknzztsimpson: Oh! Didnt know that20:40
DrknzzI wonder if the QT/Linux API has keyboard hooks and it also has a function to open the KMenu20:41
KimLarouxtsimpson, how do you define "indipendent key"? From my experience, the windows key is a modifier; it has many shortcuts like Win+L which locks the screen20:42
tsimpsonKimLaroux: windows key press event system is different from the X key press event system20:43
tsimpsonwindows generally waits for you to release the win key before it knows what to do, if you press another key before you released the win key, it does something else20:44
tsimpsonbut it doesn't actually modify the behaviour of the second key, it's just 2 keys that happen to be pressed at the same time20:44
KimLarouxso the difference is in the background... but from a user's perspective, it's just the same as ctrl or atl20:45
tsimpsonyeah, windows just deals with the win key specifically, while in linux it's just another key you happen to have on your keyboard20:46
KimLarouxis it used in KDE? I still haven't found a combination that does something20:47
james147KimLaroux: amarok uses afew20:48
tsimpsonit's usually not something apps use, as not everyone has a "win" key20:49
tsimpsonspecifically macs don'20:49
KimLarouxOOooh I see, in the Settings the Windows key is used just like Ctrl and Alt, it's named the "Meta" key20:58
