raevinquestion...does the RAM monitor widget give out the correct usage of RAM?  Because when I run "free -m" command it says I have under 500 MB of free RAM while the RAM widget tool says I have > 6 GB, and this is when I first start up00:21

valorieraevin: probably more correct to say that they are looking at slightly different ways of reporting00:29
valorie"man free" might tell you more00:29
ubottuIf you are wondering why some tools report your system has very little free memory, have a look at http://www.linuxatemyram.com/ | A short primer on Linux memory management can be found here: http://sourcefrog.net/weblog/software/linux-kernel/free-mem.html00:30
valorieand that might shed light as well00:30
raevinalright, thanks valorie :)00:32
raevinis there one i should pay more attention to than another?00:32
valorieI guess it depends on your purpose00:32
valorieI don't know much about it, so I'd rely on the man pages and links00:33
valorierather than my ignorant opinion00:33
raevinalright, thanks :)  i've just been trying to make sure that the new RAM i got isn't faulty (even though memtest returned back no problems), so got freaked out lol00:34
ironfroggy__when i resume my laptop from sleep, the battery monitor in KDE is often reporting 10% or less, even when its fully charged01:32
ironfroggy__and then it sleeps itself when it thinks the battery is going to die, and i can then resume it and it reports correctly01:33
ironfroggy__*also* when this happens it fails to enter the correct power profile, so if i dont set it myself it wont dim the screen or sleep when i close the lid.01:33
ironfroggy__is there something i might do to fix this?01:33
LinkmasterSo, I guess there was an update of sorts, but now knetworkmanager does this really cool thing that displays internet connection and stuff. This is fine and dandy, except that I'm at the edge of my wireless zone. How do I turn off the notification things, because it tells me every 30 seconds or so I have low connectivity02:20
jordan_linkmaster, which notify application runs the messages?02:31
LinkmasterI use knotify if that helps any02:32
jordan_well if so02:32
jordan_you can right click on it from the panel and disable all from poping up i think02:33
LinkmasterI know about that, but I use notifications all the time. Its just this specific one I want to turn off, and this is the first time its done it, since I logged out and back in02:33
jordan_i just dont know02:33
LinkmasterIts fine02:34
jordan_im just a noob02:34
LinkmasterI got tired of the notifcations, so I turned them off, and now it is spamming the 'low signal' in the middle of my display. How do I turn this feature off?????03:08

ValerieIs anybody here?11:25
ValerieOh that's great.11:25
ValerieI have a few problems.   I wonder if anybody can help11:26
BluesKajwell, just spell them out and we'll see if we can , Valerie11:27
ValerieFirst of all I am not technically minded and have asked and paid so many so called experts to help and they got me in more trouble.11:28
ValerieI could write a book.11:28
ValerieThe first is they managed to take all the settings off my printer.  Have sorted that out and it works on the main computer.11:29
BluesKajno need for a book , just tell us what's not working11:29
ValerieBecause of all the changes I cannot get on line on my laptop.     Everything is fine on the main computer.11:30
ValerieI just need to be able to set that up.11:30
ValerieFirstly lols.11:30
=== ocs is now known as faLUCE
BluesKajrun,  sudo lshw -C network , in a terminal to find your wifi chip , so we can determine what driver is needed11:33
ValerieIt has a driver.   It is basic.    It is just disconnected11:33
ValerieI need to reconnect.11:34
BluesKajthe driver may be wrong11:34
ValerieDo you know anybody in London that will come out to sort out my computer.11:35
ValerieWhen you speak about going into the terminal and drivers.   I panic.11:36
BluesKajdon't panic ..it's very simple really ..just copy and paste command into the terminal and click enter , you'll be asked for your pw and then the result will come up , it's just a package manager  that doesn't use a gui. amongst other things11:39
ValerieI think I should let you know.   I am a Granny who loves Linux and has used everything from Slackware to kubunta.11:40
ValerieI know everything is okay on the laptop except that it is not connecting to the net.11:41
BluesKajwell, I'm a grandfather , who's been on linux for 6 or 7 yrs now11:41
ValerieOh hahahahaha.11:41
ValerieYou are obviously more clever than I.11:41
Peace-BluesKaj: :P granfather linux geek11:41
BluesKajwe need to know what the wifi chipis, ...you are connecting the laptop thru wifi, correct ?11:42
ValerieSince my computer went to the shop to be updated.   Nothing worked.   Printer, downloading pictures etc.11:42
ValerieEtho I think11:42
BluesKajis it connected with a wire /cable to a router11:42
ValerieNo it is wireless.   I am looking at it now and it says Wlan111:43
ValerieAnd Etho is ticked at well11:43
BluesKajin networkmanager ?11:44
ValerieI have brought up Confiture KDE control Module11:44
ValerieIt says network interaces.  Route Domaommame system and Network Profiles at the top11:45
ValerieDomain I mean11:45
ValerieNow I am disappointed I can't use Granny as an excuse11:46
BluesKajValerie, which kubuntu version are you running ? ...you should have an icon in the panel showing network connection11:46
ValerieLatest on the main and an older one on the laptop11:47
ValerieYes that I have11:47
Delta_my wireless card is not stable. whenever I download for a long period of time at 1MB/s it kind of get stuck and I have to disable and reenable my wireless card to get it working again. I am using a PAE kernel. Can this be the cause?11:47
=== nancy is now known as Guest8860
ValerieThe icon says disconnected11:48
BluesKajValerie, click on the network icon , and check the settings11:48
ValerieDone that.   Up comes Connection Status.    No active device.11:50
ValerieI am sure it is because the password for the router has been changed in order for the printer to work11:50
ValerieI just don't know how to change it.11:51
BluesKajValerie, no, it should still see the router11:52
ValerieIf I right click on the icon.   It looks more promising.11:52
ValerieI wish someblody round here used Linux.   I need a Linux friend.11:53
Delta_kded4 is using 100% of my cpu11:53
BluesKajok, Valerie find the pw or passphrase whatever name the router calls it ... it will be either near the wep or wpa setting11:54
BluesKajDelta_, open system montitor / process table , right click on the process and choose your options to stop it11:56
skidzoi just made an distupgrade11:57
Delta_BluesKaj: killed it and it comes back and use 100% of 1 of the 4 cores again11:57
BluesKajDelta_, don't kill, terminate11:58
skidzobut it now hangs because i cannot reach the window bottom11:58
ValerieI give up.   Thank you for trying to help.11:58
skidzoi disabled the restricted drivers before11:59
BluesKajValerie, we have other ways to help, but that's up to you11:59
ValeriePerhaps a more simple question.    I have Skype.    Why can I hear people and they can't hear me.  Must be something to do with the mic.11:59
ValerieYes and I thank for for trying but I have no idea what a wep or a wpa is and I can't find it.12:00
BluesKajValerie, open a terminal , can you do that ?12:00
skidzoso the screen size is now at poor 800x60012:00
ValerieOn the laptop or main12:00
skidzobut the distupgrade window is larger12:01
ValerieOkay I will try12:01
skidzohow can i change the screen size?12:01
skidzochange must take effect immediately12:01
skidzoi already tried everything from the window itself12:02
ValerieI think I have opened it.  Black screen used to call it Bash12:02
ValerieOH dear do you want me to type in there lols.12:03
BluesKajskidzo, kmenu/apps/settings/system settings/display and monitor12:03

BluesKajValerie, just type ifconfig , then look for inet address12:05
ValerieGosh a lot of things came up there12:06
BluesKajlook for the options to change the resolution, skidzo12:06
skidzoi am at 93 % of the distribution upgrade, as I said, my maximum screen resolution is 800x60012:06
skidzobecause i disabled the restricted drivers12:07
skidzochanging the screen size is not an option12:07
BluesKajValerie, is there a number beside bcast ?12:09
BluesKajskidzo, then i guess you know what your problem is12:10
skidzoyes I am pretty ****** up12:10
ValerieIf it id Broadcast Multicast Yes  HTU.1500   Metric112:11
skidzothis cannot be real !!! this is now my last try to upgrade to natty12:13
BluesKajValerie, ok copy and paste this into the terminal , sudo dhclient wlan012:13
BluesKajskidzo, why did you not use the recommended driver ?12:13
Valeriehahaha  I am speaking to you on the main computer.   Can't get on with the laptop.12:14
ValerieBut I will type it in12:14
BluesKajnot on the main pc , on the laptop12:14
BluesKajno point in doing it on the main pc , Valerie , I thought we were tryng to fis the wifi connect on the laptop...if you don't have laptop access then we're done12:16
ValerieNo lol12:17
ValerieI am typing it on the laptop.    It is right beside me.   It is just I can't get on the net with the laptop12:17
ValerieLot more things have come up12:17
ValerieIt says error while getting interface flags No such device etc.12:18
BluesKaj is the network manager icon spinning or moving in any manner Valerie12:18
ValerieEverything says no such device and at the top it says type 80112:20
BluesKajbummer , then we need to reinstall the driver , Valerie , in the termianl , sudo lshw -C network ..what is the output?12:20
ValerieYou have been so kind in trying to help.    I think I will leave this now.    It looks to complicated.   I thought I would just have to reconfigure the connectiion.12:22
ValerieCan I come back and speak to you again another time.12:23
ValerieWish you lived next door lol.12:23
BluesKajanytime Valerie , it's not real complicated but it can be somewwhat time consuming12:23

yofelah, that does exist17:31
devilchaoswhat is the latest release of kubuntu desktop please i have meta pckges listed17:33
devilchaosnamely plasma desktop 4:4.6.2a?17:34
devilchaosdone command do-release-upgrade and it echos no new release found17:38
devilchaosi added natty in apt-sources list17:38
macoyou cant go from 10.04 to 11.0417:38
macoyou have to go to 10.10 in between17:39
=== bandi is now known as Guest4670
devilchaosand upgraded from there which i have always done if i were using debian in the past17:39
macoby default 10.04 will only recognise other LTS releases as available new versions, so you have to change that setting in the Software Sources preferences to make it allow non-LTS upgrades17:39
macoick, using apt-get dist-upgrade debian-style instead of do-release-upgrade is really not recommended in ubuntu17:40
macodo-release-upgrade has lots of extra hints that apt's not aware of for resolving changes in the available list of packages from version to version17:40
maco(and as i said before, skipping releases, other than for LTS->LTS, isn't something you're supposed to do)17:40
devilchaosi thought im superseeding the software sources manager by editing the file manually17:40
devilchaosyeah im learning this now lol17:41
devilchaosmight be able to recover if kde goes in and well17:42
yofeldevilchaos: the largest problem is we don't support skipping releases17:42
yofeleven less than dist-upgrading17:42

phulshofEvening. :) Anyone willing and able to help me out with a Kubuntu 11.4 issue regarding tripple monitor setup?20:10
phulshofSystem settings - Size & Orientation somehow doesn't appear to be fully saved. It switched me from tripple clone to dual clone and a monitor to the right of it, but the tripple monitor setup (which works fine if I change it) doesn't want to survive a reboot.20:12
asfyxia@rhox, considering your question, I think that 32-bits is recommended because it's just a little more solid than 64-bits. E.g. Flash can be a problem in 64-bits. Depending on what you demand from your system ;-)21:21
