naomi_In terminal I'm in my Downloads folder, how do I move 2 files from this into my Videos folder?02:30
James147naomi_: mv file1 file2 ~/Videos02:30
James147naomi_: i would like to note that tab completion on the names in very useful02:30
James147naomi_: you can also use * to match any number of any character ^^ so to move all .avi files you could use "mv *\.avi ~/Videos"02:31
ubottuYou can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.02:31
James147^^ and ~ is a alias for your home directory and is equlivent to the $HOME envroment varible (which you can see if you use "echo $HOME"02:32
naomi_mv: cannot stat `*.avi': No such file or directory02:32
Daskreechnaomi_: do you have any avi in that folder?02:33
James147there is a time that ends with .avi in the current directory?02:33
naomi_Lol yeah. I'm trying to move 2 .avi files from my downloads to videos.02:33
Daskreechnaomi_: if there is none then it's correct there is no such file or directory02:33
Daskreechnaomi_: ls | grep avi02:34
James147whats the out put of "ls"?02:34
James147^^ it better yet that02:34
naomi_the .avi is a file withtin a folder within the downloads. if that makes sense02:34
James147naomi_: ahh, then that gets a little more complcated :)02:34
James147naomi_: and, do you want to move the files to the root of the videos folder, or within sub folders in the videos folder?02:35
naomi_Just to the root.02:35
naomi_Well, hang ong.02:36
* James147 would use find ^^ though there is probally another way02:36
James147or possibally use */*.avi  ^^02:36
naomi_I have 2 folders in my downloads that are dvd's. Like one of the folders is called Tangled and within that it has an .avi and a readme or something. I just want to move the entire Tangled folder to Videos.02:37
Daskreechnaomi_: mv Tangled ~/Videos02:37
James147"find . -iname "*.avi" -exec mv \{} ~/Videos \;"   would move any file ending in .avi to ~/Videos in any folder in the current directory02:38
naomi_That worked Daskreech thanks.02:38
James147^^ then what Daskreech said :)02:38

xorxorxori installed my ATI graphic driver, now KDE is not booting.07:30
xorxorxorATI HD5870m07:30
keithzgNot booting? What stage is it getting to?07:34
keithzgAlso, what method did you use to install the (I assume) Catalyst drivers?07:36
xorxorxorwell it shows me plain terminals07:36
xorxorxori did "sudo sh ati-....bin"07:36
xorxorxorworked on gnome +) so i assummed07:36
keithzgIn my experience it's far better to use the drivers provided in the repos.07:36
xorxorxorhow do i do that? using git?07:37
keithzgNope, using a package manager :)07:37
keithzgAlthough for this specific case you might be better off using Jocket-KDE07:37
keithzgerr, I mean Jockey07:37
xorxorxoruhm.. should i reinstall kubuntu and give that a stab?07:37
keithzgsince it not only uses the package management backend to download the drivers, but then also enables them for you.07:37
keithzgYou should be able to just uninstall the ATI one you installed.07:38
xorxorxoroh i didn't know that. through terminal?07:38
keithzgErr, probably.  Been ages since I did that old fashioned route of using the actual vendor-provided packages to install, heh07:38
xorxorxorok i'll search for a way to remove the driver07:39
xorxorxorthanks a lot for your help!07:39
keithzgfyi, from what I recall the install script might've left a "fglrx-uninstall.sh" script lying around somewhere for you to use07:39
James147xorxorxor: renaming /etx/X11/xorg.conf should make xorg use the default drivers again, alloing you to login07:52
xorxorxori wish i got that message 5 minutes earlier, reinstalling kubuntu.. lol07:53
xorxorxorhow do i use jockey-kde?08:05
valoriefrom the kmenu, or the console, or krunner08:07
valorieall work well08:07
xorxorxorit shows no proprietary driver08:07
James147xorxorxor: on a fresh install? did you update the packagelist?08:20
xorxorxorJames147: oh, I didn't know I had to update the system. Now I see one. thank you!08:22

penosMy first time was when I was in High School. My friend Ernie and I were fooling around on the floor in his den. I always liked him to take me from behind - it felt naughtier and sexier that way. I was about 17 and he surprised me by running an ice cube along my spine and down the crack of my butt. I shivered with anticipation. He put the ice cube aside and began to rub my ass. He didn't ask11:58
penosabout anal sex. He could see that I was turned on. He pulled out some lube and lubed up his finger, inserting it into my ass. I moaned with pleasure and pushed back towards him. Soon I could hear him pouring more lube onto his cock. At that point I was so turned on I would have let him do anything!11:58
penosSoon he placed his cock head at my sphincter and said "it's time." Slowly he pushed forward until the head popped beyond the sphincter. Then he stopped to let me relax. After a few seconds of adjustment I started to slowly push back onto him. It was incredible!!!! He reached around and started to play with my clit - I saw stars and came continuously!!! When he came I could feel him swell and11:58

S74rk7hey everyone... is there an option when running the ./configure command to automatically download missing dependancies?12:25
susundbergThat kind of depends on the package but generally no12:29
susundbergi find 'apt-file' usefull while hunting 'what package provides that libxyz'12:30
S74rk7I remember reading on a page before that explained how to work through errors encountered when trying to run the ./configure command.... cant remember for the life of me how it was done... and trying to find it in my bookmarks :-S12:31
vichowdy all12:31
susundbergtry running the ./configure and check the errors12:31
susundberg(btw afaik the ./configure is package dependent script and no program or anything -- there is no 'global' rules for that, though some 'standards' exists)12:32
vichow to know my the gcc version ?12:32
susundberggcc -v12:32
viccommand gcc -v òùå ðóäç12:32
viccommand gcc -v not help12:33
susundbergoh? in my computer it prints "gcc version 4.5.2 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.5.2-7ubuntu1)12:33
susundberg" - that is the gcc version afaik. But what do you want to find out? Or what are you trying to do?12:33
vici want to find out version12:35
Hamragcc --version12:35
vici tried it12:35
Hamraand it says?12:35
Hamrawhat does the command output? either a version number, or tell you that you dont have gcc, so please be precise12:36
vicbut request install *gcc or *pentium-builder12:37
vicwhat does it mean&12:37
Hamracan you copy/paste the output?12:37

Hamraok, try this: sudo apt-get install gcc12:38
Hamrayou're welcome12:39

S74rk7*** your path, or set the SDL_CONFIG environment variable to the12:40
S74rk7opps :S12:40
Hamrasudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev12:40
Hamraassuming you're on maverick12:41
S74rk7so is there no exact name of the package that you need... just I can see "libsdl1.2-dev" in the error...12:43
S74rk7when I ran sudo apt-cache search sdl it brought up loads of results... so was confused..12:43
Hamrai used the sdl-config comment12:44
Hamrai just typed in my konsole "sdl-config", it complained with: The program 'sdl-config' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:12:45
Hamrasudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev12:45
S74rk7Hamra: and did you just recognise it and know what package it was from?12:45
S74rk7yeah I got it downloaded there now12:45
Hamraand if the needed dependency happens not to be an executable, i use packages.ubuntu.com to search for it :)12:46
S74rk7Hamra: I cant seem to get the next one ... tried packages.ubuntu.com - no luck... can I pastebin 1 more to you mate... ?12:54
S74rk7Hamra: http://paste.ubuntu.com/587776/12:55
S74rk7Hamra: Thanks mate12:55
susundbergAlso config.log usually contains more info what failed12:56
susundbergand possibly the link command that usually contains the library name12:57
Hamraapt-cache search libsdl image12:57
susundbergand that library name can be googled or queried with apt-file12:57
Hamrashould give you the hint ;)12:57
susundbergTrue :)12:57
Hamrayou, of course, need the dev package for building12:58

DarthFrogAMDphreak: We're not Kubuntu developers.  We're just users helping other users.17:45
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: will that report the current health status of the harddisk?17:45
AMDphreakUm, wouldn't it help if more users were aware of the bug?17:46
AMDphreaknot just devs.17:46
phoenix_firebrdha ha ha toll17:46
DarthFrogphoenix_firebrd:  I've used the command line tools of smartmontools to do so.  Never used smart-notifier but it is a graphical hard disk health status notifier.17:46
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: ok , i will try that now17:47
AMDphreakIn my experience users....ARE the devs17:47
DarthFrogAnd now that I know about it, I'm going to install it myself. :-)17:47
AMDphreakalot of the time (ok, not all the time)17:47
DarthFrogAMDphreak: Go to your meeting then fill a proper bug report later.  Make sure you're not filing a duplicate bug.17:48
AMDphreakI'm not sure where to file this, because I don't know a package to give it to17:48
AMDphreaker, tie it to17:48
AMDphreak...i'll try to figure out the forums. is there a KDE specific forum?17:49
DarthFrogYes.  #KDE17:49
AMDphreakaha eys17:49
AMDphreakOh, even an IRC channel. nice17:49
AMDphreakThank you17:49
DarthFrogBut they're KDE, not Kubuntu.17:49
AMDphreak...darn. I wonder if this is a coreutils problem or a driver problem.17:49
AMDphreakwell, gg. Thanks for the nontrollish answers. sorry, i'm kinda ticked about a moderator on a forum right now (not Linux-related)17:50
AMDphreakbye guys, and good luck with the disk smart health ops17:50
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: i am getting an error. the app is not starting17:50
DarthFrogphoenix_firebrd: what error?17:51
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: one min17:52
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: http://paste.kde.org/8635/17:53
DarthFrogphoenix_firebrd: That's not an error and your app is running ("ps aux | grep smart").  It's merely a warning17:54
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: oh , i will that17:54
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: where is the gui?17:55
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: i cant see any gui of this app17:56
DarthFrogphoenix_firebrd:  man smart-notifier17:57
maiteHola gente :)18:10
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: the smart-notifier didnt work for me so i downloaded a cli versio of the seatools(seagate app) for linux and used it18:22
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: it worked, i have done some test on my harddisk and it was fine18:23
DarthFrogGlad to hear it.18:23
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: they had a gui version , but the installed was in rpm18:24
jimmy51_hello, i need to make a bootable DOS usb stick so i can update my BIOS.  any easy way to do that within kubuntu?18:24
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: you mean MSdos or PCDos?18:25
jimmy51_phoenix_firebrd: i suspect either would work.18:25
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: there is a app to write bootimages to usb pen drives. i forgot the name, can you give me a min?18:26
jimmy51_phoenix_firebrd: sure, thanks for the help18:26
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: found it18:29
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: its flashboot. http://www.prime-expert.com/flashboot/18:29
jimmy51_phoenix_firebrd: ah, that looks good. i'll give that a try.  thanks!18:30
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: download a floppy image of pcdos or freedos and write it using flashboot18:30
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: yw18:30
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: does suse have a partnership with seagate. why wasnt a deb version of seatools available for download?18:32
DarthFrogphoenix_firebrd: Umm, I'm not privy to the inner workings of any company. :-)18:32
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: do we have to be?18:33
DarthFrogphoenix_firebrd: But at a guess, RPM (Redhat Package Manager) is used by Red Hat (obviously) which is the foremost enterprise Linux.  AFAIK, no enterprise-intended Linux uses DEB.18:34
DarthFrogphoenix_firebrd: And you can use "alien" to convert RPM to DEB.18:34
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: ya thats right18:34
jimmy51_phoenix_firebrd: doh... that looks like it only runs under windows :(18:35
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: ya, thats a windows app18:35
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: wine cannot write a MBR18:35
jimmy51_phoenix_firebrd: linux itself can't write it?18:36
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: no linux can, but wine has no low level disk write privilege18:37
jimmy51_phoenix_firebrd: ok, so if i'm running kubuntu 10.04 and have a USB flash disk, is there a way to make the flash disk bootable DOS so i can run the BIOS update exe?18:37
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: you want a linux app to do that , right?18:38

jimmy51_phoenix_firebrd: hopefully.  i don't have a windows machine, just kubuntu.18:39
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: try this http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/18:40
phoenix_firebrdDarthFrog: thanks for the help buddy18:41
phoenix_firebrdjimmy51_: i have to go now , bye18:42
jimmy51_phoenix_firebrd: i'll try that.  thanks.18:42
RussellAlanhey guys, on the homescreen how do i add the desktop widget? to display my desktop folder18:57
Mithrandir_RussellAlan: on the panel or on the desktop?19:04
RussellAlanon the main screen19:05
Mithrandir_by Ctrl+F12 will get you all the things on your desktop if you like19:05
Mithrandir_The login screen?19:05
Mithrandir_DarthFrog: I think officially RPM stands for RPM package Manager19:05
RussellAlanno just the widget to display the contents of my Desktop Folder19:06
RussellAlancontrol f12 did nothing19:07
Mithrandir_Click on the button on the far right of hte panel and click on Add widgets. in the search type desktop then double click the one you want19:08
DarthFrogMithrandir_: If so, that's a latter-day renaming, like GCC.  I ran Red Hat Mother's Day version and it was definitely called RedHat Package Manager back in the day.19:12
RussellAlanMithrandir_,  it just has show desktop19:12
Mithrandir_Mother's day?19:12
DarthFrogMithrandir_: I think it was RH 3.03. :-)19:12
RussellAlani'm looking for just a widget that contacns the contents of my /home/user/Desktop19:12
Mithrandir_RussellAlan: Oh I'm sorry. your desktop folder19:13
Mithrandir_ok Apologies19:13
Mithrandir_You are looking for the FolderView19:13
Mithrandir_And you want to drag it to the desktop not doubleclick19:13
DarthFrogMithrandir_: No, I'm wrong.  RH Mother's Day was version 1.0.  :-)  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/History19:14

vicwhere i can see my file system boot?19:51
vickubuntu 10.1019:51
areichmanDjangoNoob: you're using kubuntu 10.1019:53
gomiboyvic: you mean the boot log?19:54
DjangoNoobactually ubuntu 10.10 but i have installed kde plasma desktop and set it as default, rebooted many times, no better19:54
DjangoNoobareichman, i have ibm t60 laptop and intel display graphics19:54
areichmanDjangoNoob: have you installed kde 4.6.x or are you on the stock 4.5.x?19:54
DjangoNoobareichman, dunno. how can i check?19:55
areichmanit would have been a process to upgrade to 4.6. If you haven't added a repository specifically for it and then installed it from the package manager you haven't done it19:55
areichmanand that's why multiple monitors aren't saved19:55
DjangoNoobareichman, in the new kde, the monitors are saved?19:56
areichman4.5 doesn't have the ability to save multiple monitor configurations. Or if it does, there's no interface for it. 4.6 can do it but it's a bit of work to install it19:56
areichmanand might make your system less stable19:56
DjangoNooboh great........... :S19:56
areichmanhaha, I wish I had better news for you19:57
=== shadeslayer_ is now known as shadeslayer
areichmanI can tell you that I have 4.6 installed here and it's a good upgrade. Nothing major, for me at least, got borked. But your experience may be different19:57
DjangoNoobcan I install it via apt-get?19:58
vicnone, i mean file boot19:59
areichmanyes, if you add the repository that contains it19:59
areichmanDjangoNoob: here are instructions for it: http://www.kubuntu.org/news/kde-sc-4.6.119:59
areichmanit's a pretty simple process19:59
gomiboyvic: please elaborate... there is no "file boot", there is a directory /boot but if you can explain us what you have to do, we'll help :)20:05

gomiboyvic: in /etc/rc2.d/ are most of the symbolic links to the services that run at system startup20:21
vicgomidoy: thanks :)20:22
DjangoNoobareichman, I updated to new KDE and it still doesnt remember multiple monitors :(20:23
areichmanDjangoNoob: open up system settings20:23
areichmanin the Hardware Section, click Display & Monitor20:24
areichmanarrange everything the way you want and then, in the Size & Orientation section, click Save as Default20:24
sithlord48djangonoob how are you tring to set it, and do u have a properiatary driver instaleld?20:24
areichmanNext time you restart it should remember your settings20:25
DjangoNoobsithlord48, i have the driver that came with the linux, and intel display adapter20:26
DjangoNoobareichman, there is no button "set as deafult". maybe "defaults", but its grayed out...20:27
areichmanit's been there in mine since I upgraded to 4.6.1 and that's what I had to do to make it remember my multiple monitor settings... I'm not sure why it wouldn't be there20:28
DjangoNoobmaybe i didnt upgrade.......... how can i check?20:29
DjangoNoobi addet ppa20:29
sithlord48for my mulitmonitor neeeds the only problem i ever has is they get set to the same res.20:29

DjangoNoobit's not new, yes20:30
DjangoNoobi think i'll manage20:31
DjangoNoob146 not upgraded packages :)20:31
sithlord48i would start there lol20:31
gomiboyDjangoNoob: i haven't upgraded to 4.6, but maybe you have to apt-get dist-upgrade20:31
gomiboyther :)20:31
areichmandon't dist-upgrade20:32
areichmanI think that's a very different process. Just upgrade the packages that need to be upgraded20:32
gomiboyit's mandatory yo upgrade to kde 4.6 afaik20:33
sithlord48why not dist-upgrade i always do taht20:33
sithlord48if you have packages that need to be removed by newer ones you have to do a dist-upgrade20:33
areichmanreally? I've never dist-upgraded before20:35
areichmanI assumed it was to upgrade the entire distribution and I just wanted to update one part or particular packages20:36
ubottuA dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. Please see !upgrade for the proper way to upgrade to a new version of Ubuntu.20:36

RatchetmanI've been having an issue with Firefox. Origionally I downloaded 3 and when I found on the Kubuntu forum a stable version of 4 and it worked for a day before it wouldn't load or anything.22:21
genii-aroundnaomi_: I don't think it has that feature much. Although you could probably just write little aliases to something like: /me does this thing and that thing!22:22
ubottuFirefox 4 is the current stable version of Firefox. Current versions of Ubuntu do not have it (see !latest), but there is an unofficial and unsupported PPA that you can use by running the following command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox22:22
RatchetmanOh yeah that was the code I used to get it in the first place. I should save that! Thanks22:25
